A HIGH School student was
stabbed during a fight among a
group of teenagers said to be from
rival gangs at CR Walker Senior
High School at lunch time yester-
day.
The 17-year-old boy was knifed
in the lower back outside the
school building when an argument
among the boys escalated into vio-


ILT JONES, brother of
high-profile murder victim
Hywell Jones, hit back at
former MP Lester Turn-
quest for what he feels was
an unjustified attack on his
brother's memory.
Mr Jones issued a state-
ment yesterday saying the
former MP's comments at a
press conference on Thurs-
day "smacked of despera-
tion" adding that it is
Ii hK pathetic to speak ill
of the dead."
"I wonder if his next gam-
bit will be to suggest that my
mother, who died shortly
after Hywell, was the evil
genius behind Hywell's busi-
ness empire," he comment-
ed.
Calling the press confer-
ence to deny any involve-
ment with the Jones mur-
der, Mr Turnquest described
the victim as a drinker
amongst other things, who
had an affiliation for taking
"risks" and who he had to
bail out of trouble on
numerous occasions.
Mr Turnquest also
claimed that he was the man
who got Ilt Jones "out of jail
when he came here and in
the usual disregard for
Bahamian laws got locked
up."
When asked why he
thought the ex-MP decided
to mention him, Mr Jones
said he had "no idea" but
that "desperate people say
and do desperate things."
Mr Jones, a film location
manager by trade, said: "He
conveniently omitted to
mention that I was detained
at the Airport Police Station
as a result of a misunder-
standing with and by the
Bahamian Defence Force
when I was scouting for a
movie and, more important-
ly, that they apologised to
me the next day.
"I wonder if Turnquest is
aware of the rich irony
wherein he asserts that any-
one who is arrested shows
disregard for Bahamian law,
when he himself was arrest-

ed the other day."
Mr Jones said this part of
Mr Turnquest's statement
made him "chuckle."
Police confirmed on Mon-
day that Mr Turnquest had
been arrested. He was held
overnight for questioning in
connection with the 2007
forgery allegations connect-
ed with a company run by
himself and Hywell Jones.
At his press conference,
Mr Turnquest said: "In 2007
I commenced several legal
proceedings against Mr
Jones and his company,
including one for tortuous
interference.
"As a counter move, Mr
Jones made a criminal com-
plaint alleging that I forged
his signature on a share cer-
tificate effecting its transfer
to a prestigious Swiss trust
company as trustee as this
was always the client's wish
and also Mr Jones' under-
standing.
"The originating docu-
ments show that Mr Jones
and another associate, Mr
Eveleigh, had arranged that
scenario. Twenty-nine

Man accused of sex with boy claims

A MAN accused of having
sex with a 16-year-old boy
yesterday claimed it was the
teenager who had made sex-
ual advances towards him.
The prosecution closed its


case against Joseph Sweet-
ing, 48, yesterday without
calling its three remaining
witness.
Opting to give sworn testi-
mony from the witness stand,
Sweeting - who denies the
charge - told the court that
on February 4, 2003, he was
"laying off" in his apartment


in his boxers when the com-
plainant and his friend Delvin
Pratt appeared at his front
door.
Sweeting said Pratt told
him he had come to collect a
phone card he had promised
him. Sweeting said he told

Policemen arrested in connection
with bar raid released from custody


TWO policemen who were arrested in con-
nection with an unauthorised raid on a bar
have been released from custody pending
talks between senior officers.
RBPF chiefs are trying to decide whether
or not the officers - who are still on active
duty - will face criminal charges in a civilian
court or be court-martialled.
It is claimed the men entered the bar on
Armstrong and Dowdeswell Streets and


searched it without producing a warrant.
Raymond Gibson, Assistant Commission-
er in charge of crime, told The Tribune yes-
terday: "They're still on active duty. The
investigation has been completed and a deci-
sion will be made soon in respect to them
on whether they will be disciplined.

THE TRIBUNE

A MURDER convict who has spent the
past 12 years in prison may know shortly
what his new sentence will be.
Senior Justice Allen deferred her deci-
sion for two weeks in the case of Lindy
Sheldon Cartwright, 32, who was sentenced
to death in May 2000 for the December
1997 shooting death of Denton Forbes.
Cartwright's death sentence was quashed
by the Privy Council in July 2006.
Sonia Saunders, a chief probation officer
who was called to give evidence at the sen-
tencing hearing said that Cartwright has
admitted his guilt and expressed remorse
for the killing.
Cartwright told the probation officer that

No arrests over video



footage of suspects


TWO alleged bandits who
were captured on video dur-
ing a robbery of a mobile
phone store are still on the
loose.
Although crystal clear
footage of the suspects has
been making the rounds on
Youtube and social net-
working website Facebook,
no arrests have been made in
the case, said Superintendent
Elsworth Moss.
On the video, captured by
a high-quality security cam-
era which was trained on the
front door of the store, two
men - both appearing to be
in their late teens or early
20s - are seen about to com-
mit the robbery that would
later net them between $600
and $1,000 in cell phones
from the Mobile Cell Phone
store on Village Road, oppo-
site Master Technicians.
The incident occurred on
Sunday morning, November
8, at around 2am.


THIS FOOTAGE was circulated on Youtube and Facebook and can be
seen at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjCo86z6Frs


One young man seen in
the footage is wearing a grey
hooded sweatshirt pulled
over his head, baggy below-
the-knee camouflage cargo


pants and white socks with
flip-flop sandals over them.
The other is wearing what
appears to be a grey or green
long sleeved sweatshirt, jeans


and black sneakers. He has a
shaved head and what looks
to be several scars on his
scalp.
Totally unaware that they
are being captured on cam-
era, one of the two
unmasked men - wearing
the sweatshirt and jeans -
works vigorously with a
crowbar to pry open the
security door on the front of
the store while the other
keeps watch, sitting behind a
pillar nearby as cars whizz
past.
Although not seen on the
video, The Tribune under-
stands that once they
removed the barred security
door, the pair set off the
alarm, and raided the store
for just a few minutes before
fleeing.
Those with relevant infor-
mation can reach Officer
Paul Adderley at the Fox
Hill Police Station at 324-
6330.


he had taken a loaded gun from Forbes
the day before the killing while they had
been gambling and intended to sell the
weapon for money.
The following day however, Forbes con-
fronted him in the Blair Estates area and
asked for the weapon back.
A struggle ensued and the gun dis-
charged.

Witnesses
Forbes ran away and Cartwright said
that he fired shots at him but did not run
after him as witnesses had testified at his tri-
al.
Cartwright also told the probation officer
that on one occasion he had attempted to
express his remorse to the victim's mother


while she was visiting someone at the prison
but he was not well received.
Cartwright's attorney Dorsey McPhee
said that the judge has the discretion to
impose a life sentence, or consider the time
the convict has already served and release
him.
McPhee said that Cartwright has learned
his lesson and deserves a second chance.
Senior Justice Allen noted however that
not enough had been said about the victim.
"Somebody's mother is without a son
today. Life is a precious thing and when it
is taken away it cannot be replaced," she
said.
"It's not just justice for the person before
me, its justice for the victim and their fam-
ily."
Cartwright is expected to be sentenced
on December 3 at 2pm.

Senator lobbies PM to halt


container port relocation


PLP Senator Jerome Fitzger-
ald has stepped up his crusade
to "save Saunders Beach" by
lobbying Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham directly, ask-
ing him to halt work on the
downtown container port relo-
cation.
Along with a written plea
urging Mr Ingraham to cease
all work related to the reloca-
tion, Mr Fitzgerald also for-
warded the signatures of "thou-
sands" of concerned citizens
who signed a petition which
opposes the move. He also
claimed that several persons
were scared off from signing
the petition for fear of "victim-
isation" by the government.
"These courageous Bahami-
ans who have joined with our
committee speak now with a
loud and clear voice to state
that there was no transparency
in the process with regard to
the relocation of the container
port. It has proven to be an
environmental disaster.
"We have no doubt that
when all of the facts come out
surrounding the financial impli-
cations to the people of the
Bahamas, it will prove a finan-
cial disaster as well," said the
senator, who heads the Com-
mittee to Preserve and Protect
the Bahamas for Future Gen-
erations.
The senator also accused
Minister of the Environment
Dr Earl Deveaux of failing to
inform the public about possi-
ble negative effects from the
port relocation.
"One only need look at the
colour of the seawater stretch-
ing from the extension of
Arawak Cay down the whole
length of the Cable Beach strip
where Bahamians and tourists
alike are concerned, and right-
fully so, about swimming in the
murky, milk-coloured water
which is filled with particles of
dredged material," he said.
In the letter, the senator put
a list of questions to Mr Ingra-
ham which he claimed Mr
Deveaux has failed to answer.
These included:
* Why has the government
ignored the 2005 EIA by
Coastal Systems International?
* Why has the government
chosen Arawak Cay for the


relocation of the port when it
was ranked sixth out of seven as
the least favorable location?
* Who is Blue Engineering
Limited? Did they go through a
pre-qualification screening by
the BEST Commission? Is
there any relationship between
the principal of Blue Engineer-
ing Limited and any member
of the major shipping lines in
Nassau?
* Has a traffic impact assess-
ment been completed with
regard to the impact the port
will have on traffic on West Bay
Street, and if so, where is it?
* Has a noise and air pollu-
tion study been completed, and
if so, where is it?
* Has a financial feasibility
study been completed, and if
so, where is it?
* Has the government deter-
mined where the new causeway


will connect to West Bay Street
from Arawak Cay? If the gov-
ernment has changed its mind
regarding the requirement for a
new causeway as outlined in a
letter from you to the proposed
owners of the new container
port, why has the government
changed its mind and what will
be the impact of failing to con-
struct a new causeway on the
tenants at Fish Fry?
* Who are the 18 to 20 pro-
posed owners of the new port at
Arawak Cay and in the case
where an owner is represented
by a limited liability company,
who are the beneficial owners
of those companies?
* How many individuals own
shares in more than one of
these companies and in which
companies do they own shares?
* Do any Cabinet ministers
own shares, either directly or
indirectly, in any of the com-
panies that are to own the con-
tainer port and how many of
the said companies do they own
shares in?
* With regard to the 50-foot
extension or boardwalk behind
parts of Bay Street, has the con-
tract been awarded for this
extension, and if so, to whom?
And when was it signed? And
what is the amount?
* Which properties on Bay
Street will benefit by the
increase in value as a result of
this extension and who are the
beneficial owners of these prop-
erties and have they been made
to contribute in any way to the
cost?

Political correctness blurs Fort Hood shootings


SAN ANTONIO - When Nidal
Malik Hasan was accused of opening
fire on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood,
Texas, polite society had a politically
correct narrative ready to explain the
murderous act: Repeated deployments
had taken a psychological toll on
Hasan and the wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan had pushed him past the
breaking point.
There was a big problem with this
narrative. Hasan had never been
deployed.
The enormous stress on American
military personnel created by multiple
deployments to war zones since the fall
of 2001 is real. So is the toll it has
exacted on men and women in the form
of broken families, ruined relation-
ships, post-traumatic stress disorder
and suicide.
To lump a man charged with being a
traitorous murderer in with those who
have served three, four and more com-
bat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan is a
monumental insult to their valour and
devotion. To pronounce him a state-
side casualty of wartime stress trivial-
izes the profound anguish of those in
the military community who truly are
bearing the nation's burden of war.
So the politically correct narrative
changed. Hasan was suffering from pre-
traumatic stress disorder or second
hand PTSD. The satirical newspaper
The Onion had parodied the former in
2003 as a condition "previously thought
to afflict only young soldiers drafted
against their will." The idea that a vol-
unteer, an officer and a psychiatrist
would go on a murderous rampage
because of his impending deployment
seemed farfetched.
So the narrative changed again.
Hasan was the target of religious
harassment who was forced to endure
the insensitivity of his superiors. The
evidence for this is slim. But it strains
to keep alive the flawed hypothesis
that Hasan, accused of coldly emptying
magazine after magazine into his
defenseless brothers and sisters in
arms, was the victim.


What each of these narratives
ignores is the mounting evidence that it
wasn't repeated deployments or an
impending deployment or hearing
about deployments or even alleged
harassment that turned Hasan into an
accused killer. Instead, it was an
extremist religious doctrine that Hasan
had repeatedly shown adherence to in
recent years.
A decent, polite society appropri-
ately discourages drawing premature
conclusions that some ignorant people
will invariably use to advance bigoted
generalizations about Muslims. That is
especially proper in the case of the men
and women of the Islamic faith who
have served and continue to serve
bravely and honourably in the U.S.
armed forces.
But it is a disservice to them and to
all benevolent Muslims not to call an
extremist an extremist. It wasn't a bad
day on post that resulted in the latest
case of what scholar Daniel Pipes has
labelled Sudden Jihad Syndrome. It
was immersion in a fanatical belief sys-
tem that legitimizes - even demands
- the slaughter of non-believers.
Tamping down rampant speculation
about religious motives is responsible.
Promoting Hasan through the ranks
despite the warning signs, hampering a
justified investigation and preventing
the sharing of essential intelligence
with the Pentagon because of political
correctness is unconscionable. When
the CIA interrogation of al-Qaida ter-
rorists can be criminalized, no one
should be surprised that Army brass
and FBI agents would do otherwise.
Hasan has been charged with pulling
the trigger at Fort Hood. He's the per-
petrator, not the victim. But if the U.S.
government failed to take action to
stop him for fear of giving offence, he
should properly be charged with 13
counts of death by political correct-
ness.

Carl Bethel's





election as





FNM chairman


EDITOR, The Tribune.

I READ with interest a
letter which appeared in
your newspaper on
Wednesday, November
4th, which was written by
Patty Chisholm whom I
know well. I agree whole-
heartedly with the senti-
ments of Patty as they
related to the political
legacy of Hubert Ingraham
and Perry Christie. I want
to add a few of my
thoughts to her comments.
Firstly, let me say how
embarrassed and saddened
I felt by the manoeuvre Mr
Ingraham pulled off in


having Mr Carl Bethel
elected, or is selected a
better word, as chairman
of the FNM. Embarrassed
and saddened to think that
we are still playing these
cheap and childish politi-
cal games in the twenty-
first century. Mr Ingraham
in subverting the FNM's
electoral process and
undermining the legitimate
aspirations of two Bahami-
ans could only be saying
either one or all of the fol-


Amendment to


the Hotels Act
EDITOR, The Tribune.
I ALWAYS remember that when my late mother was
faced with something which to her made little or no sense,
she would ask, "Who's bright idea was that?"
I found myself echoing this sentiment when I was faced
with the Amendment to the Hotels Act, which now requires
persons who own and occupy homes in any of the islands
and who rent them on occasion to visitors and Bahamians
for holidays to register their properties with the Hotel
Licensing Division of the Ministry of Tourism and pay a six
per cent tax on any monies earned in respect of the premis-
es rented.
Many questions arose when reading the application form,
and the first thing which was brought to the attention of per-
sons affected by the legislation was the dearth of informa-
tion that could be obtained from the licensing authority.
Questions which are arising are: Do persons who own
duplexes and live in one half and rent the other fall under
the provisions of this Act? And, if not why not, since they
rent on a yearly basis for the most part and the government
would earn more in revenue from this source.
Do persons who own apartment buildings and live in one
of the apartments fall under the provisions of the Act?
And, if not why not?
If there is no tax payable in respect of these duplexes
and apartment buildings, does it mean that when renting to
Bahamians or residents there is no tax payable? Then the
question follows, if the premises which are generally rent-
ed by tourists are rented by Bahamians will there be no tax
payable?
Further, by extension, if the premises formerly rented
by the week or by the day by visitors begin to be rented by
the month or by the year by Bahamians or by residents
will the tax no longer be payable?
If the intent of the legislation is to place owner occupied
rentals to visitors in the same category as hotels so that
there is no advantage to the owner occupied rental prop-
erties, why place the burden on owner occupied premises
where there are no existing hotels?
Again, why should duplexes and apartment buildings
have an advantage over hotels and owner occupied premis-
es rented to tourists? Do we need to tax persons who rent
homes and apartments to persons other than tourists? Sure-
ly there would be much revenue to be collected by the gov-
ernment in those circumstances? However, maybe the polit-
ical fallout would be too great!
But, another question is, what if I build homes which I do
not occupy and which I rent to visitors? Would I be required
to pay this tax?
I am sure that the owners of properties which they occu-
py and which are occasionally rented to tourists or visitors
would like the answers to these questions so that they can be
assured that the legislation is indeed a bright idea which will
be of lasting benefit to the country.

lowing:
* He has no confidence
in his minister of educa-
tion and wanted him out
of his cabinet;
* He has no confidence
in the former chairman of
the FNM;
* He panicked following
the election of Bradley
Roberts as chairman of the
PLP;
* He wanted to test his
complete control over the
FNM party;
Whatever Mr Ingra-
ham's motivations, he has
once again demonstrated
clearly that he has little
regard for democracy,
process, traditions or the
human feelings of others.
He must make midgets of
others to make himself
appear to be a giant. He
gets away with it because
of a compliant body of
cringing men and women
who make up the machin-
ery of the FNM party; a
party that has proven
repeatedly that it is rud-
derless and seemingly
leaderless without him. I
am repulsed by the man-
ner the FNM democrats
who are supposed to be
the leaders of the nation
are totally intimidated by
their leader. This is fright-
ening for our young and
hopefully developing
democracy.
The condescending com-
ments of the principals in
this were especially hard
to take. One minute you
are confident of being
elected chairman and the
next you are trying to save
face by seconding the
motion for someone else
to be elected in your stead.
Mr Ingraham personally
moved the nomination for
Mr Bethel to become
chairman, a highly unusual
procedure for the leader
of a party, to ensure that
all pretenders would not
dare challenge his wishes.
It is amazing what these
men would subject them-
selves to accommodate Mr
Ingraham's imperial dic-
tates. They appear willing
to suffer the most humili-
ating indignities all in the
name of party unity.
The saddest thing to me
was to witness how a once
promising Carl Bethel had
allowed himself to be used.
No matter how he tries to
spin it, the fact is he was
demoted.
In leaving the cabinet to
become chairman of the
FNM he has fallen from
being a policy maker to
being an editor of press
releases. As minister of
education he headed the
most important ministry in
the government; the min-
istry with the largest bud-
get; the ministry most
directly responsible for
moulding the minds of
future leaders for the
country. As minister he
was a nation builder, as
chairman he will become
a cheerleader. What makes
this comedy of errors more
unbelievable was that Mr
Bethel was chairman of the
FNM before, and while
serving as chairman he
longed to be a cabinet min-
ister!
Enough is enough!
Bahamians we must
remove this Christie/Ingra-
ham parody from our body
politic. We must design
and build a new national
vision for our Bahamas. It
is not too late to stop this
travesty of leadership
before 2012. We cannot
depend nor wait on the
fervent PLPs and FNMs;
they are too smitten by
idolatry; the rest of us must
be about mapping a future
for our children and our
children's children.

social behaviour problems

Man accused of sex with boy

FROM page one
Pratt he had no money but invited him and the complainant
inside his Virginia Street apartment to sit down because they told
him they had just walked from Bay Street.
The accused told the court he went into his bedroom and when
he came back out, Pratt and the complainant started laughing.
"I asked them what they were laughing at. Delvin said I did-
n't want to know what they were laughing at because I wasn't
going to like it," Sweeting testified.
According to Sweeting, Pratt told him the complainant want-
ed to have sex with him. Sweeting said he told the two young men
they had to get out as he was going to his next apartment to clean
up.
The accused said he was still in his boxers fixing a broken
shower head in the adjacent apartment when the complainant
came in and started unbuttoning his shirt. Sweeting said he
asked the complainant if he had come to help him work.
"He started playing with my private part, so I pushed him off.
He started rubbing my chest, I pushed him off again," Sweeting
told the court.
He said he slapped the complainant, and then punched him.
The complainant, it was claimed, ran into the bedroom and
then into the closet.
Sweeting said he told the youngster to come out of the clos-
et, which was when Pratt came into the apartment. Sweeting
refuted the boy's claim that he had dragged him into the bedroom
and sodomised him.
Dr Tanya Garcia also took the witness stand yesterday to give
evidence about a report which had been compiled by another
doctor at Princess Margaret Hospital.
Dr Garcia said the complainant had been examined at 2.30am
on February 3, 2003. In the report, it was noted that bite marks
were seen on the complainant's penis.
The trial is being heard before Senior Justice Anita Allen. San-
dra Dee Gardiner and Terry Archer are prosecuting the case.

Hours later an employee
of the Red Hot Wed Cafe was
robbed of the shop's deposit
bag as she carried it to her car
outside the building in East
Street South just before 3pm.
The woman, who works at
the web cafe, was getting into
her car when a man wearing a
rust coloured shirt and long
pants pointed a handgun at
her and demanded she hand
over the cash.
He snatched the bag con-
taining an undetermined
amount of cash and ran out

apartment building.
Then the Island Luck web
shop in Baillou Hill Road was
robbed just before 6pm, as an
employee was collecting cash
from the store.
A gunman approached the
man working at Island Luck
and demanded he hand over
the bag of cash before escap-
ing on foot, heading north on

Police are investigating all
armed robberies, and warn
businesses to step up their
security measures as armed
robberies become increasing-
ly frequent in the weeks lead-
ing up to Christmas.
There have been 14 report-
ed armed robberies of indi-
viduals and businesses this
week, and the violent crimes
are expected to continue in
the weeks before Christmas.
The Bahamas Chamber of
Commerce typically hosts a
crime prevention seminar in
late November or early
December in anticipation of a
rise in armed robberies, and
executive director Philip
Simon said now is a good time
for business owners to invest


in security measures to ensure
their businesses are safe.
He said: "There is a grow-
ing trend of crimes to satisfy
needs, wants, or desires par-
ticularly as we head into the
Christmas season, and we
always encourage businesses
to invest a little bit more at
this time in security measures,
either physical security or
additional equipment and
technology.
"An investment in your
security is worth it to protect
yourself and your assets at
this time of year. For a num-
ber of companies this is also
their most profitable time of
year, so the extra investment
can help mitigate against
crime at this period."
It is also vitally important
for businesses to make con-
tact with their local police and
to maintain good communi-
cation with officers to ensure
they are supported in pro-
tecting themselves against
crime, Mr Simon said.
Businesses in the same
area should also work togeth-
er to deter criminals by join-
ing and forming crime watch
associations to share infor-
mation and security cameras.
Mr Simon said: "You can-
not underestimate the strate-
gies and tactics the police
encourage us to do from
changing our habits relative
to deposits and cash transac-
tions, to aistalling CCTV
security cameras and alarms.
"We also need leadership
beyond that of the police
force, and that's something
we are going to be looking at
as a chamber of commerce to
see how we can assist in the
encouragement of crime
watches among businesses in
different areas.
"We hope it will bring
about an attitude of being
your brother's keeper."

Davis: PLP needs to get in 'fighting mode'


TOP lawyer and recently
elected deputy leader of the
PLP Philip Davis has pledged
he will now spend three days
of every week working out of
the party's headquarters to
"make sure that our party is
vigorously fighting in every
battle and actively addressing
the concerns of the Bahamian
people."
Charging that the only way
to improve conditions for the
country is to kick the present
government out of power, Mr
Davis said the party needs to
get in "fighting mode" and
"change the way it conducts
its business."
In a speech that revealed
that the PLP is now intent on
gearing up into campaign
mode, Mr Davis, MP for Rum
Cay, Cat Island and San Sal-
vador, said the party needs to
show the public that it is ready
to govern.
He was speaking at a PLP
Mass Rally in Seabreeze on
Wednesday evening. PLP
leader Perry Christie and
Chairman Bradley Roberts
also addressed the crowd.
"In order to win-back the
support of the Bahamian peo-
ple we must demonstrate now,
in Opposition, our capacity


"In order to win-back the support of
the Bahamian people we must
demonstrate now, in Opposition, our
capacity and desire to work for them!"

and desire to work for them!
We must provide them every-
day, with the proof that we are
ready! We must be the party of
action - positive and effective
action!" said Mr Davis.
He called on all PLPs and
others to get involved in the
effort, calling for the party's
Branch offices and National
Headquarters to be accessible
and fully manned by people
"hungry to make the Bahamas'
future more glorious than its
past (and) who care more
about winning the next elec-
tion than their own egos."
"PLPs we must change our
party. We must change the way
we conduct our business and
be engaged full-time in the
business of solving the issues of
this country crafting plans for
growth and development. Pol-
itics must be about what is
right, not who is right! It must


be about all Bahamians, no
matter the colour of their
skin. We must be the party of
the people that we claim to be
and reach out to our brothers
and sisters regardless of their
political affiliation. Let them
see that we are about the peo-
ple's business... that we know
how to get things done... that
we have what it takes to gov-
ern. We must lead the way!"
said the MP, who won the
deputy leadership by a large
majority in the recent PLP
convention.
Mr Davis said he will open
an office at Gambier House,
PLP headquarters, "in the
coming weeks" to undergird
the full activation of the party
machinery.
Meanwhile, the MP hit out
at the FNM government for
being "more concerned about
scoring political points than

quarters to "make sure that our party is vigorously fighting in every battle and actively addressing the concerns

securing the Bahamas' future."
"At their recent convention
- the government of the
Bahamas, mind you - seemed
more intent on bad-mouthing
us and our Leader than pre-
senting solutions to the issues.
No clearer vision of this was
the presentation of the man to
whom the country looks for
direction, the supposed chief


executive of the Bahamas, who
without any shame or com-
monsense descended to name-
calling in a national address.
"PLPs, it is indeed clear that
Hubert Ingraham and the
FNM care more about gaining
political mileage than about
putting this country on a suc-
cessful footing," said Mr Davis.
He took aim at plans that


Government has to implement
Closed Circuit Television and
electronic monitoring of
offenders as a means of reduc-
ing crime, questioning what
impact this would have when
"they have all the hell at mere-
ly keeping the traffic lights on!"
"Can you imagine the chaos
that such a measure would
result in?" he asked.

fishing ban advisories


THE Department of
Marine Resources has
announced that the waters
surrounding High Cay off the
coast of Central Andros will
be designated a "protected
area" from January 1 to Feb-
ruary 28, 2010.
During this period all forms
of fishing will be prohibited.
The seven square mile pro-
tected area is bounded in the
north by latitude 24�40'N, in
the south by 24�37.8'N, in the
east by longitude 77�40.8W,
and in the west by longitude
77�44'W.
The department also
announced that a Nassau


Grouper ban will again be
implemented this year, also
from January 1 until the end
of February.
During this period, the tak-
ing, landing, possessing, selling
or offering for sale of Nassau
Grouper is strictly prohibited
throughout the Bahamas.
The department also said
that any fish commonly
referred to as "-i> ,iip i ' must
be landed with its head, tail
and skin intact.
"Persons found in violation
of the above will be prosecut-
ed to the full extent of the
law," said a statement from
the department.

LeBron
wants to
switch
numbers as
Jordan tribute
pg 10


By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

AFTER losing the initial
Caribbean Cup by one and a
half points in Puerto Rico,
the Eastern team came to
town and pulled off the vic-
tory with a 19-13 decision
over the Western side.
The three-day tournament,
featuring players from around
the Caribbean in a Ryder
Cup format, wrapped up yes-
terday with the awards pre-
sentation at the home of
sponsor Craig Flowers at the
Ocean Club Golf Course.
Sidney Wolf, president of
the Eastern team, comprising
of players from Puerto Rico,
Trinidad & Tobago and the
US Virgin Islands, said they
basically were better pre-
pared for this year's tourna-
ment and that was the main
reason why they prevailed.
"We had a very good group
of closely knitted players
from the Eastern Caribbean,"
said Wolf, who hails from
Puerto Rico. "During the
week, we sat down and talked
about our strategy.
"The condition of the golf
course dictated the tourna-
ment and I think at the end,
our players were better
adapted to the wind because
the wind factor played a key
role in the outcome today."
Wolf admitted that they
had a team with a little more
young and fitted players, who
rose to the occasion and got
the job done. He noted that
the Western team, although
they had a lot of young play-
ers on their side, were not as
experienced as his squad.
The Caribbean Cup, which
offered the championship tro-
phy known as the Cesar
Rivera Cup, named after the
longest-serving Executive
Member of the CGA.
Each team comprised of 12
players matched against each
other in match play.
Erick Morales from Puerto
Rico said they performed
exceptionally well and every-
body contributed to their suc-


cess.
"We just took one shot at a
time. We were down one shot
heading into the final day and
we were confident that all of
us had the game to win
today," he said. "We dis-
played our talent and we
won."
Morales, who has played
on the past five Hoerman
Cup teams for Puerto Rico,
shooting the lowest score this
year, said everybody commu-
nicated very well and that was
why they were able to pull it
off.
James Johnson from Bar-
bados said their side had the
best players in the Caribbean
and it showed in their results.
"We knew coming in here
that we would have a very
strong team," he said. "It was
just a matter of execute to
win. Match play could be a
little different format from
stroke play.
"We don't play a lot of
match play in the Caribbean,
so I think some of our
stronger players were not
quite used to it. But we still
managed to win."
The Eastern team beat the
Western team, captained by
Bob Slatter, that featured
three young players from the
Bahamas.
Oren Butler, who played
on his second Caribbean Cup,
said that while it was a good
experience and he had a lot
of fun, their team had "too
many old men" on it.
"We had about five young
guys and about seven guys
who were over 50 years," he
said. "You can't put a 50-
year-old against a 25-year-old
and expect to win.
"I played pretty good. I
was solid throughout the
week. But the majority of the
players from the other team
were in college. So they
played much better than we
did."
Butler, 24, attends the Uni-
versity of South Carolina.
He's hoping to get ready for
the upcoming season in Feb-
ruary.
"I don't feel bad. I played


good this week," he said.
Devaughn Robinson, play-
ing in his first Caribbean Cup,
said he wasn't too pleased
with his individual perfor-
mance, but the team played
very well.
The 21-year-old student
from Texas Southern Uni-
versity said any time he can
home, it's more like a "vaca-


tion and a plus to play golf."
And 15-year-old Benjamin
Davis, who attends the IMG
Academy in Bradminton,
Florida, said he was quite
pleased with his performance
because he only lost one
match.
"The team held up pretty
good. We struggled a bit
today, but overall, everybody


did well," said the six-time
junior national team mem-
ber. "It was just wonderful to
come back home and repre-
sent your country."
Minister of Youth, Sports
and Culture Desmond Ban-
nister was on hand and he
was honored for his contri-
bution to the success of the
tournament.


SOCCER

THE Bahamas Football Asso-
ciation will hold a beach soccer

liger thinking




his way around




a short course


GOLF
MELBOURNE, Australia
Associated Press

TIGER Woods had a stiff
breeze at his back as he stood
on the 13th tee, his hand rest-
ing on the cover of his driver as
he contemplated how to navi-
gate the 354 yards to the green.
With his brawn, Woods
could hit driver close to the
green, maybe onto the putting
surface, for an easy birdie.
He chose to use his brain.
Woods pulled out the 3-iron
and hit another ball down the
middle of the fairway. It's a
shot the fans have been used to
seeing over the first two days of
the Australian Masters, where
the world's No. 1 player has
opened with rounds of 66-68
to build a three-shot lead.
Why not go for it? The pin
was on the front half of the
green, and Woods knew it
would be a difficult pitch.
"If the pin was in the back


sidered beasts.
Kingston Heath is for man-
aging the game, not mashing
the ball.
"I think it's great," Woods
said. "I've certainly always
enjoyed playing golf courses
where you have to think and
plod your way along. As I said
earlier, you don't need a golf
course of 7,500 yards for it to
be difficult. With some of the
angles you have out here, you
can hit a lot of drivers and 3-
woods and get the ball down
there, but there's a price.
"If you miss the ball on the
wrong side, it's going to run
into bushes or bunkers where
it's unplayable," he said. "If
you do lay it back, then you
have pretty tough iron shots.
There's plenty of options out
there. You just have to pick
one and go with it."
It has been reminiscent of
Royal Liverpool, where
Woods chose to hit driver only
once over 72 holes on his way


part of the green, I would have
probably hit driver and gotten
it down there, because then
you have the entire green to
pitch up," he said.
He hit wedge to about 8 feet
and missed the putt. On the
same hole, Rod Pampling hit
driver to about 40 yards short
of the green and pitched the
ball through the green and into
the back bunker. He had to
scramble for par. That was all
the evidence Woods needed
that he made the right choice.
Such are the holes that make
Woods enjoy a track like
Kingston Heath, which had
7,059 yards is the shortest he
has played all year. He has won
at Torrey Pines and Firestone
more than any other courses
in the world, and both are con-


to victory in the 2006 British
Open. And it is not unlike
Muirfield Village this year,
where the fairways were fast
under hot weather, and
Woods only occasionally hit
driver off the tee and rallied
for a four-shot victory.
He has hit driver five times
each round at Kingston
Heath, only when necessary
- either into the wind on a
long par 4, or a par 5 where
bunkers can't be reached, or
on the ninth when he can take
the fairway bunkers out of
play.
That's what he did Friday,
and while he missed three
birdie putts inside 10 feet and
twice had to hole tough putts
for par, he doesn't look as
though he's about to give any-
one much help.

LeBron wants to switch


numbers as Jordan tribute


BASKETBALL
CLEVELAND
Associated Press


LEBRON James wants
NBA players to give up their
No. 23s to honor Michael
Jordan.
The Cavaliers superstar,
who has worn 23 since he was
a high school sophomore,
believes players should pay
tribute to Jordan for the Hall
of Famer's impact on the
game.
"I just think what Michael
Jordan has done for the game
has to be recognized in some
way - soon," James said.
"There would be no LeBron
James, no Kobe Bryant, no
Dwyane Wade, you name all
the best players in the league
right now and the last 10
years, there would be none
of us without Michael Jor-
dan."
James made the comments
following the Cavs' win in
Miami on Thursday night.
The news was first reported
by The Plain Dealer.
James said he has been
considering the change for
some time. He's willing to
switch to No. 6 - his U.S.
Olympic team number -
and wants to start a petition
to get every player in the
league wearing 23 to give up
the number.
"It's time," James said.
"He's the best basketball
player we've ever seen. Mike
does it on the court and off
the court. If you see 23, you
think about Michael Jordan.

Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade in the second quarter during

You see guys flying through
the air, you think about
Michael Jordan. You see
game-winning shots, you
think about Michael Jordan.
You see fly kicks, you think
about Michael Jordan. He
did so much, it has to be rec-


ognized, and not just by
putting him in the Hall of
Fame."
Jordan sat courtside on
Thursday when James scored
34 points to lead the Cavs to
their sixth win in seven
games.


Mavs' Howard out

indefinitely with

ankle injury
BASKETBALL
MINNEAPOLIS
Associated Press

DALLAS Mavericks for-
ward Josh Howard is out
indefinitely to continue his
recovery from surgery on
his left ankle.
Howard missed all the
preseason and the first five
games of the regular sea-
son after having arthro-
scopic surgery on his ankle
and wrist in May. He
returned to the starting
lineup on Saturday against
Toronto and played in the
past three games.
Coach Rick Carlisle said
Friday that Howard needs
more time to recover. He
did not put a timetable on
Howard's return. Howard
will still do some work in
practice in addition to his
rehabilitation while he tries
to regain the strength and
mobility in the ankle.
Howard averaged 18
points and 5.1 rebounds last
season. The Mavericks play
at Minnesota late Friday.

Showdown nears

for Pacquiao, Cotto
BOXING
LAS VEGAS
Associated Press

MANNY Pacquiao is
getting ready for one of the
biggest nights of his life. He
has spent hundreds of
hours sparring in swelter-
ing gyms and taking morn-
ing runs through deserted
streets.
He will be facing Miguel
Cotto, who hasn't exactly
been a slacker himself. The
Puerto Rican welterweight
champion had to get 2
pounds under his normal
weight for the richest and
biggest fight of his career.
The winner of Saturday
night's highly anticipated
145-pound bout could get
a megafight against unde-
feated Floyd Mayweather
Jr.
Pacquiao is a 2 1/2-1
favorite in the scheduled
12-rounder from the sold-
out MGM Grand arena.
The bout will be televised
on pay-per-view.

Redskins' Betts

questionable for

game vs Denver
FOOTBALL
ASHBURN, Va.
Associated Press

WASHINGTON run-
ning back Ladell Betts is
questionable for the Red-
skins game against Denver
in which he had been slated
to start for Clinton Portis.
Coach Jim Zorn said Fri-
day he thinks Betts will play
in Sunday's game despite a
sprained ankle, but the
coach also is prepared to
go with a running back by
committee of Betts, Rock
Cartwright and Quinton
Ganther.
Portis is out after sus-
taining a concussion in last
week's loss to Atlanta.


Nadal sets up semifinal


against Djokovic in Paris


TENNIS
PARIS
Associated Press


RAFAEL Nadal gained a
semifinal matchup against
Novak Djokovic at the Paris
Masters with a 7-5, 7-5 victory
over defending champion Jo-
Wilfried Tsonga on Friday.
Nadal played his best ten-
nis of the week and ended
Tsonga's hopes of qualifying
for the eight-man ATP World
Tour Finals in London.
"It was a very important vic-
tory for me," Nadal said. "It's
probably the first big victory
after I came back from injury."
Nadal returned to competi-
tion in October after a month


off because of a pulled stom-
ach muscle.
Third-seeded Djokovic
made the semifinals of the
tournament for the first time
by defeating Robin Soderling
6-4, 1-6, 6-3.
"(Nadal) is a big champion
and plays really well on all sur-
faces. He is a big fighter,"
Djokovic said.
Nadal had two three-set
wins en route to the quarterfi-
nals. But the Spaniard played
with authority on the decisive
points against Tsonga, who
made 37 unforced errors.
"I started the tournament
playing almost terrible and
now I'm in the semifinals,"
Nadal said. "Today I was real-


ly focused all the time, and I
played really well at the impor-
tant moments."
Nadal struggled on his serve
early in the first set, but man-
aged to save five break points
- including holding for 3-3
after being down 0-40.
He gradually found his
rhythm and pressured Tsonga
with strong returns before
breaking the Frenchman with
a passing shot to lead 6-5.
Nadal clinched the set with a
forehand winner.
The Spaniard broke for a 6-
5 lead in the second set when
Tsonga missed two consecu-
tive backhands.
"This match is exactly like
my whole year," Tsonga said.


"I have all the shots. I have
the opportunity ... for finishing
the point. And I don't' finish
it."
Although Nadal leads
Djokovic 14-5 overall, the
Spaniard was impressed by
the Serb's victory over top-
ranked Roger Federer in the
Swiss Indoors final last week.
"He is the best player in this
part of the season," Nadal
said. "It's going to be a good
test. I know he is the favorite
on this kind of surface."
Soderling fell out of con-
tention for the ATP finals
with his loss, giving Fernando
Verdasco the last available
spot at the season-ending
event.


"I've certainly always enjoyed
playing golf courses where you
have to think and plod your way
along."

FREEPORT - Sir Orville
Turnquest, the patron of
One Bahamas, visited three
public schools spreading the
One Bahamas message with
students here on Grand
Bahama.
Sir Orville was accompa-
nied by Sir Durward
