"It know s no political, social
or economic bounds," Mrs Grif-
fin said. "It is not a one time,
isolated event, but rather a pat-
tern of behavior or a cycle that
has to be broken."
She said while Bahamian
women "have come a long way"
they cannot rest on our laurels
as there are "still many of our
sisters who are deeply rooted
in situations of domestic vio-
lence and they need our help."
"We are all touched in one
way or the other by domestic
violence and it requires the col-
lective efforts of all to address
the problem," Mrs Griffin
She said the passage of the
Domestic Violence (Protection
Orders) Bill in the House of
Assembly on Wednesday will
not eliminate domestic violence,
but will serve as a major plank
in the fight against it, "and we
hope bring it to a reduced lev-

Mrs Griffin said the over-
whelming support for the leg-
islation by parliamentarians
from all sides of the political
divide sent "a clear message"
to perpetrators of domestic vio-
lence that the country is united
"I am satisfied that the pro-
visions of the Bill will go a long
way in raising the level of con-
sciousness of domestic violence
while providing greater protec-
tion for victims and promoting
and fostering the implementa-
tion of programmes for both
victims and perpetrators."
Wednesday night sent a
"clear message" to perpetra-
tors of domestic violence that
their acts will no longer be
tolerated in the Bahamas,
sending the proposed Domes-
tic Violence Bill through the
House of Assembly and on to
the Senate unopposed.
The passage of the Bill took
place on the eve of celebra-
tions surrounding Interna-
tional Women's Day which is
observed globally on March
Minister of Social Services
and Community Develop-
ment, Melanie Griffin, who
introduced the Bill for a Sec-
ond Reading on Wednesday

clear message to those per-
sons who are out there com-
mitting these acts, that their
behavior will not be tolerat-
ed," Mrs Griffin said.
"When you look at the sta-
tistics, 45 to 60 per cent of
reported homicides have been
attributed to domestic vio-
lence," she said, "those sta-
tistics are too glaring to be
Mrs Griffin said the quick
passage of the legislation by
House members was even
more significant based on the
"worldwide move" by legis-
lators and organizations to
stamp out domestic violence
within their communities.
She said the passage of the
Bill also coincides with the
discussions of the United
Nation's 51st Session of the
Commission on the Status of

began last week, will end this
week under the theme:

"It is very significant for us
at this time in the life of our
country to be making this
landmark legislation," Mrs
Griffin said. "I feel a sense of
accomplishment. Not for
myself, but for the team and
for persons in this country
who have been working
towards this type of legisla-
tion for a number of years.
Mrs Griffin said the Bill is
not gender-biased and is
designed to provide a level of
protection that is currently
non-existent for the many
persons who are victims of
domestic violence be they
male or female.
She said the legislation will
also provide intervention,
including counselling, for both
victims and perpetrators.
Mrs Griffin said the legisla-
tion will, for the first time,
provide a comprehensive def-
inition for domestic violence,
covering physical, sexual,
emotional or psychological
and financial abuse.
She added that physical and
sexual abuse "have long been
accepted" as forms of domes-
tic violence but that the new
Bill recognizes that there are
"other more subtle forms of
abuse that may not leave vis-
ible scars like physical and
The minister said another
'-shortcoming" of the previ-
ous legislation was that it did
not recognize persons
involved in relationships out-
side of marriage.
She said that while drafters
of the legislation accepted
that marriage is the ideal rela-
tionship between a man and a
woman who want to share an
intimate relationship they
could not ignore the fact that
a large number of persons are
involved in other types of
The legislation also makes
provision for the granting of a
protection order by the Mag-
istrate's Court when a judge is
satisfied that a person has
engaged in or has threatened
to engage in conduct that is
considered to be domestic
violence or conduct that may
reasonably be regarded as
harassment of the spouse,
partner, child or other mem-
ber of the household.
As timing is a critical issue
when dealing with the need
for protection, the legislation
also provides for the court to
endeavor to hear an applica-
tion for a protection order
within two days after the date
of service of the application
or as soon as possible there-
The minister said the pro-
tection order might include
provisions that restrain the
respondent from being near
"This includes going to the
person's workplace or school.
Where appropriate, a protec-
tion order might require the
respondent to leave the
premises and continue any
legal or other obligation rela-
tive to rent, mortgage, utili-
ties and the like," Mrs Griffin
In addition to the victim,
an application for a protec-
tion order can be made by the
Commissioner of Police,
another member of the house,
a person other than the
spouse or partner acting as an
agent for the person, with the
leave of a court and a social
worker in the case of a child.
"Fear, intimidation and
dependency often cause vic-
tims not to follow through
with action which often
results in no consequences
being taken against the bat-
terer. This provision will
ensure that victims get the
protection they require," Mrs

candidates in an effort to raise
the quality of their local MP.
They say they are tired of vot-

someone of substance to repre-

The call came yesterday from
teacher Charles Moxey, who
said he and his friends were fed
up with tit-for-tat mudslinging
between the major parties.
"I want substance this time
around," he told The Tribune,
"I registered to vote at the last

named its candidate for South
Beach. He is Phenton Neymour,
a former member of the CDR.
The PLP is, meanwhile, still
undecided, though attorney
Fayne Thompson also an ex-
CDR member is being touted
as their likeliest candidate.
The PLP incumbent, Agatha
Marcelle, is not running this
time and was, in any event, dis-
missed as a "no show" MP by
Mr Moxey and his friends.
He said he and many voters
elsewhere were keen to see an
improvement in "quality and
style" among candidates. "We
want to see for ourselves what
they have to offer," he added.
Father Sebastian Campbell
of All Saints Church had agreed
to make his church hall avail-
able for the debate, said Mr
"We want this debate and we
want it soon," he added, "I
think it is time we as a democ-
racy started looking for people
of quality and character. We
can't depend on the parties
sending whomever they will."

Bush to visit Latin neighbourhood
PRESIDENT BUSH came to
office six years ago pledging a "fun-
damental commitment" to Latin
Whether because events elsewhere
distracted him or because he was
incapable of concentrating on more
than one or two foreign challenges at
a time, Bush has failed to keep that
As he hops from Brazil to Uruguay
to Colombia to Guatemala and final-
ly to Mexico on his current Latin
America tour, he is certain to hear
well-founded complaints about the
consequences of his inattention to
the southern hemisphere.
Administration spokesmen have
been denying that the president's trip
is meant to counter the influence of
the oil-rich Venezuelan President,
But Bush's hosts know he was moti-
vated to visit them in large part
because of the Chavez effect.
After six years of not-so-benign
neglect, Bush is visiting five coun-
tries outside the Chavez orbit with
the presumption that a trickle of US
aid and expressions of support may
suffice as an answer to the financial
aid Chavez has been lavishing on
select neighbours and to his impas-
sioning anti-imperialist rhetoric.
If Bush hopes for even modest suc-
cess, he will have to alter his past
approach to Latin America.
Instead of harping on a militarized
war on drugs or free-trade agree-
ments that seem only to exacerbate
poverty and disparities of wealth,
Bush ought to heed the particular
local needs of the countries he visits.
In Brazil, his first stop, he is likely
to be told it is hypocritical of the

As I have been associated
with several Bahamian artists
in various disciplines and con-
tinue to be so in some cases, let
me say that the following is
entirely my own perception and
personal point of view; I speak
for no-one except myself.
The focus of this letter, the
comments and the questions,
are directed towards The
National Art Gallery of the
Bahamas, its Curator and rep-
resentatives. My questions are
fundamental. My understand-
ing of the functions of the
NAGB are to showcase
Bahamian artistic talent (of
which there is a mighty
amount), support and empower
the artists and show the public,
our society, that art in all its
aspects needs to be neither
daunting nor elitist; in other
words encourage everyone to
understand the role and real
value that culture plays in every
This being so, as recently
reflected in a newspaper article
by Miss James the Curator and
by Antonius Roberts and John
Cox on Love 97 on the forth-
coming Gallery Tour, March
16th-18, it begets the following
By what process and by
whom was the decision made
as to which artists and galleries
should be included in this tour?
I do not know of any kind of
open invitation that went out
to all recognized or emerging
artists who might be interested.
This, in turn, begets this com-
ment. The word "inclusive" has
been bandied around, indeed
emphasised, by all three per-
sons in their media contribu-
tions and promotions for this
"new" thrust of expanding the
art experience both for the
artists involved and for the com-
munity, yet it still appears to
me that the more accurate word
might be "exclusive"; with per-
haps a couple of exceptions the
artists are the customary cho-
I called the NAGB person-
ally to inquire whether a newly-
opened gallery by an estab-
lished artist could be included
on the tour and was given an
unequivocal no that it was too
late. Perhaps it was but as a pro-
fessional event planner, I have a
little difficulty with that answer
and with the espoused philoso-
phy of inclusiveness.
Be that as it may, it illumi-
nated another point for me. In
the grand scheme of things I am
nobody not a wealthy patron
nor major collector but I am
everybody am I not?
As a 'nobody' I have been
able to call Curators in London,
Toronto, Germany and other
places and speak or meet direct-
ly with them. Without going
into details it would have been
nice, it would have been com-
mon courtesy to a donating
member (me) not to say very
good public relations had the
NAGB Curator felt inclined to
do the same.
My last question is who is
this Gallery really for? What
is its mandate surely not a pri-
vate playground for the selected
elite? If it is to be world-class
and for 'everyman' and 'user
friendly', a place to learn sub-'
liminally as well as literally, I
suggest the following: change
the hours to suit the public not

beyond 4.30 pm so that people
could browse after work; open it
on a Sunday so that it could:,
become a family affair; offer.

could be a draw to business per-

FREEPORT A motorist in
the Berry Islands miraculously
escaped unhurt after his vehi-
cle went over a bridge and
crashed into a large boulder,
according to a senior police offi-
cial on Grand Bahama.
Chief Superintendent Basil

The construction industry in
New Providence and several
Family Islands is "healthy"
according to Bradley Roberts.
He said figures show a
"whopping increase" in
approved building permits in
2006 over the previous year.
In a communication to the
House of Assembly on Wednes-
day, March 7, 2006, Roberts
said there have been significant
increases in building permit
fees, approved housing units
and building inspections.
He pointed to the following:
The value on approved
building permits in New Provi-
dence for 2006 totalled
$661,056,818 a 44 per cent
over the previous
Building permit fees for
New Providence also showed
significant increases from
$762,217 in 2005 to $1,131,873 in
2006, a 48 per cent increase
There was a marginal
increase of 1.8 per cent in the
total number of housing units
approved in 2006 (2,847 units)
Mr Roberts emphasised that

He explained that the cause-
way connects Bullocks Harbour
with Great Harbour Cay.
Oliver told police that he was
travelling at about 40mph when
the vehicle suddenly slid out of
control and went over the
bridge on the southern side and
crashed head on into a large
boulder which was the only
thing standing between the car
and a plunge into the sea.
According to reports, Oliver
was on his way home after
attending a party on Cocoa Cay.
"Firstly, there was a 19 per
cent increase in the number of
buildings completed in 2006
totalling a value of $203,181,628.
"Secondly, a review of the
records revealed that the num-
ber of construction starts for the
year 2006 were up by some 27
per cent over the previous year
requiring building inspectors to
carry out some 1,261 inspec-
tions. The value of these struc-
tures totalled some
$201,957,286, representing a 33
per cent increase over the pre-
vious year's value.
"Thirdly, the Buildings Con-
trol Division's records also
showed that there were some
1,865 housing units completed
during the year 2006 and the

Mr Edwards stated that many
Bahamians have expressed their
disappointment wiUt both polit-

He stated that Bahamians are

This week, In Days Gone By
looks back at Sir Sidney Poitier.
Sidney Poitier was born in
Cat Island where his parents a
Bahamian father of Haitian
descent and a Bahamian moth-
er were farmers.
He spent his first years on Cat
Island, but during his early
teenage years travelled to Nas-
sau with his family.
As he got older, Sidney dis-
played an increasing inclination
toward juvenile delinquency. At
the age of 16 his parents
shipped him off to Miami to live
with his older brother.
After a stint in the theater,
Sidney had his first breakout
role as a member of an incorri-
gible high school class in the
1955 film Blackboard Jungle.
He was the first male black
actor to be nominated for a
competitive Academy Award
(for The Defiant Ones, 1958),
and also the first to win the
Academy Award for Best Actor
(for Lilies of the Field in 1963).
Sir Sidney is a Knight Com-
mander of the Order of the
British Empire. While this enti-
tles him to use the title "Sir",
he chooses not to do so.

(AP) Pakistan's president
has removed the Islamic
nation's chief justice for "misuse
of authority," a minister and
state media reported Friday.
Chaudhry, chief judge of the
Supreme Court since 2005, had
enjoyed a reputation for taking
a tough line against misdeeds
and human rights abuses.
Opposition groups, lawyers
and former judges expressed
surprise over the dismissal,
which underlined the power of
the executive dominated by
*' President Gen. Pervez Mushar-
raf over the judiciary.
A hard-line opposition leader
in the National Assembly, Hafiz
Hussain Ahmed, condemned
Chaudhry's removal and urged
the opposition parties to back
the fired justice "to protect the
judiciary from a dictator
Speculation about reasons for
Chaudhry's fall ranged from
reports that he had misused his
influence to secure official
employment for his son, to
recent court rulings that had
challenged the government's
Mohammed Ali Durrani said
Musharraf removed Chaudhry
for "misuse of authority" but
gave no further details.
The president has submitted
a case against Chaudhry to the
Supreme Judicial Council, state-
run Associated Press of Pak-
istan news agency reported.
Musharraf had received
"numerous complaints and seri-
ous allegations for misconduct,
misuse of authority and actions
prejudicial to the dignity of
office of the chief justice of Pak-
istan," and Chaudhry had been
unable to give a satisfactory
explanation, APP said. The
report did not detail the acci!
stations against the judge.

U.S. officials, meanwhile, need
the support of Iranian-allied
political groups in Iraq to keep
a lid on Shiite militias.
On a trip to Brazil on Friday,
President Bush said the mes-
sage to Syria and Iran won't
change at the Baghdad confer-
"We expect you to help this
young democracy," Bush said.
"We will defend ourselves and
the people in Iraq from
weapons being shipped in that
cause harm; that we will pro-
tect ourselves and help the Iraqi
people protect themselves
against those who would mur-
der the innocent to achieve
political objectives." There
have been other chances in the
past for one-one-one dialogue,
but rarely with such promise.
In September, the United
States joined Iran and Syria in
talks on Iraq although Wash-
ington ruled out direct talks
with Iran in advance. This time,
however, there is an open invi-
tation to Iran.
And both sides have dis-
patched well-suited diplomats.
Satterfield has served in posts
in Saudi Arabia, Tunisia,
Lebanon and Syria, as well as
Washington positions including
the National Security Council
staff. Araghchi did postgraduate
studies in England and served
as ambassador to Finland. He's
regarded as one of Iran's lead-
ing diplomatic strategists on
relations with the West.
The host, Iraqi Foreign Min-
ister Hoshyar Zebari, juggles
close ties with Iran and the
United States and has left
ample room for closed-door dis-
cussions and possible bilateral
exchanges. Washington broke
ties with Iran after militants
stormed the U.S. Embassy in
the wake of the 1979 Islamic
The one-day session in Bagh-
dad also carries little pressure
on the delegates. It's designed
only to pave the way for a high-
level gathering possibly in April.
Zalmay Khalilzad, the U.S.
ambassador to Iraq, said he
would not necessarily object to
meeting with the Iranians. "But,
the first point to make to them
is that they need to stop arms,
Iranian arms, coming across the
border," he told ABC's "Good

time in nearly two years that
Washington is willing to discuss

guess a few others, had been sold in Andros. And the buyers had
paid what would be considered fair market value for the car.
"So the car really at this stage belongs to these buyers, and she
needs to go to the insurance company and get reimbursed by them.
"She was asked a strange question, which was: 'Was the car
sold directly by the thief or was it sold by a second party?' Mean-
ing the second party who got the car from the thief would have legit-
imised the situation and then, when they sold it to another party,
that person couldn't possibly have known the car was stolen.
"So the car belongs to them and she needs to go to the insurance
company and get reimbursed by them. The problem is'the car is a
12-year-old car, a 1995 Honda. And she only had third party cov-
erage, and they don't give you fire and theft unless you have been
a long-time customer and had this car insured since it was first
bought and you reduced the coverage.
"So she is left with a bank loan, no car, and the idea that the car
now belongs to the thief? It makes no sense to me. I say, look, if I
buy a stolen watch, it doesn't matter if I pay fair market value for
it, they will haul me before the courts for receiving stolen goods. So
how does it become legitimate because it is a car?" she asked.
Ms Davenport is one among many who have been inconve-
nienced by the racket. Many victims have asked police to list the
descriptions of cars they have confiscated to re-acquaint owners with
their stolen property.

and BRENT DEAN
THE second day of the West
Indian Literature Conference
rolled on yesterday at the Col-
lege of the Bahamas with yet
more diverse and thought-pro-
voking presentations and
The well-received event has
played host to novelists, poets,
academics, students, and com-
binations of all of these, pro-
viding what many attendees
agree, has been fertile ground
for the sharing of ideas. The day
started off with a round table
discussion involving Bahamian
writers Christian Campbell,
Patricia Glinton-Meicholas and
"It was really interesting to
hear the Bahamian writers talk
about audience, the issues of
publication and getting people
to read in the region," said one
visitor to the conference, Dr
Raphael Dalleo, from Florida
The mid-afternoon session
saw presentations ranging from
the topic of to what extent spec-
ulative fiction for example,
science fiction can challenge
traditional notions of desire, to
an exploration of the role of the
supernatural in Caribbean pop-
ular culture, specifically reggae
and calypso music.
Dr Andrea Shaw from Nova
Southeastern University pre-
sented a paper on the "Articu-
lations of the Supernatural in
Caribbean Popular culture."
She focused on the use of the
supernatural in Caribbean
music as symbolic of wider
socio-economic struggles in
Dr Shaw used musical inter-
ludes of Bob Marley's Duppy
Conqueror and Peter Tosh's
Vampire, among others, as
examples of this theme. The
"old vampire" who does not
wish to see "youths prosper" in
Tosh's song, can be said to rep-
resent the oppressive social
apparatus that keeps the under-
privileged from true liberty.
Whereas, in Marley's Duppy
Conqueror the narrator speaks
of being held from his spiritual
journey by forces that "Jah" has
given him power to overcome.
Her lecture also focused on
the demonisation of animist
religious traditions by colonial
and post-colonial societies.
Voodoo and Obeah have come
to be regarded as subversive
cultural forces. Historically,
these religious practices were
instrumental in mobilizing slave
communities in revolt against
the colonial order, Dr Shaw
Dr Michael Bucknor from the
UWE Mona presented a paper
entitled: "Horizons of Desire:
Imagining alternative words in
speculative fiction." He dis-
cussed works by several authors
working in the genre of specu-
lative fiction, and in which ways
they can be seen to be "shift-
ing known and given under-
standings of sexuality." Sexual
politics are very controversial
in the region, as mainstream
Caribbean culture can be
regarded as homophobic. Dr
Bucknor's lecture spoke to the
growing number of pan-
Caribbean voices that are chal-
lenging normative views of sex-
Dr Jennifer Rahim from the
University of the West Indies,
St Augustine gave a very per-
sonal lecture "On Learning the
Art of Shedding Skin." Dr
Rahim spoke of sexual abuse
as a child and related the expe-
rience to the colonial experi-
ence of the Caribbean.
She pointed out that despite
prevalence of romanticised
notions of the Caribbean home,
it is very often the case that the
reality of "home" in a
Caribbean context is charac-
terised by conflict and violence.
There was praise all round
for the level of papers present-
ed at the conference, with one
of the organizers of a previous
West Indian Literature Confer-
ence in Trinidad, Dr Jean
Antoine Dunne, describing the
academic contributions as of an
"exceptionally high" standard.
Many of the international
attendants of the conference
expressed their delight that the
event is being held in the
Bahamas, as it presents them
the opportunity to learn about
Bahamian literature and cul-
ture. Kathryn Morris, a teacher
from Florida commented on the
climate of the event.
She said: "It's a looser
dynamic, discussions go as long
as they're productive, people
get together in comers or under
some shade, have really mean-
ingful conversations and do the
kind of networking that in the
US seems so, sort of corporate."
An English graduate student
from the US, studying African
American literature, said: "I'm
learning a lot. The panelists are
amasing scholars and writers
from all over the Caribbean.
I'm from the States and so it's
been a nice experience for me
to be able to participate."
The conference concludes
tomorrow with discussions on
topics such as, Jamaican politi-
cal ideology, the Caribbean
influence on the Salem Witch
trials and Bahamian academic
Christian Campbell will present
his paper, "Dis we Tings, Folk,
Bush vs Chavez
in fight for Latin
By BILL CORMIER
Associated Press Writer
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina
(AP) It's in-your-face diplo-
macy as Presidents Bush and
Hugo Chavez carry out dueling
tours in South America. The
more the American leader talks
compassion, the more his
responds with taunts like
"gringo go home" and "if he
says yes, we say, no."
Bush said Friday in Brazil
that "we care about our neigh-
borhood a lot." But he hasn't
gone this far south of the U.S.
border for quite some time,
allowing Chavez to establish a
dominant presence in a region
where many people have long
felt either neglected or inter-
fered with by Washington.
And Chavez is refusing to
cede any ground. While Bush
moved on to Uruguay's capital
Friday night, staying inside a
high-security bubble that keeps
protesters at a safe distance,
Chavez relished the opportuni-
ty to fill a Buenos Aires soccer
stadium with leftist supporters
after getting another public dis-
play of affection from his
Argentine ally, President Nestor
In the Bush vs. Chavez
debate, these ideological adver-
saries vie for regional influence.
On the right, Bush says Wash-
ington is firmly committed to
democracy and the poverty-
fighting benefits it inspires. On
the left, Chavez says the United
States is determined to keep the
region subservient to its own
Some Latin Americans would
rather they both stay home.
Latinobarometro, a respected
and independent pollster based
in Chile, found 39 percent of
Latin Americans had a nega-
tive opinion of Bush, the same
as Chavez. The survey of 20,234
people in 18 Latin American
countries from Oct. 3 to Nov. 5
had a margin of error of 3 per-
Brazilian President Luiz Ina-
cio Lula da Silva seemed to take
care to avoid favoring either
side as he and Bush faced the
media Friday. While Bush cele-
brated an ethanol partnership
with his new "biofuels buddy,"
Silva said more carefully that
Brazil-U.S. relations will
strengthen "to the extent that
we respect each other."
Chavez also moved to
upstage Bush on the environ-
mental front, signing deals with
Kirchner to promote the use of
cleaner natural gas as Brazilian
environmentalists claimed that
Bush's ethanol plan could
increase Amazon deforestation.
While Chavez publicly calls
Bush the "Devil" and the "King
of Lies," Bush has sought to
ignore him, and studiously
avoids mentioning Chavez by
Yet Bush is not ducking from
the fight. Just before the trip,
Bush apparently- tried to take
on the mantle of Chavez's
revered independence hero,
telling an audience of Hispanic
businessmen that Simon Boli-
var "is often compared to
George Washington Jorge
Chavez labeled Bush's appar-
ent reference to himself as a
crude slap to the dignity of the
Chavez, a pal of Cuban com-
munist Fidel Castro, has spent
years crisscrossing Latin Amer-
ica to slap backs, sign agree-
ments and drop hefty govern-
ment checks drawn from
Venezuela's vast oil wealth.
And he's only ratcheted that up
during the Bush trip.
When Bush promised to send
a military ship to regional ports
to treat 85,000 poor Latin
Americans, Chavez could point
out that 30,000 Cuban doctors,
bankrolled in part by
Venezuela, are not only treating
but living among Latin Ameri-
And when Bush promised
more than $1 million for Boli-
vian flood victims, Chavez
quickly upped the ante to $15
Also, in a region where
democracies have only recently
vanquished military dictator-
ships supported by previous
U.S. governments, Chavez tries
to capitalize on the common
perceptions that U.S. has dark-
er intentions than friendship
During Bush's six hour stop
in Colombia, for instance, he'll
get a glimpse of a U.S. Embassy
scholarship program for belea-
guered minority descendants of
African slaves. But human
rights groups have launched the
allegation that the United States
did little to stop Colombian
paramilitaries from forcing
thousands of these Afro-Colom-
bians to flee their homes.
All told, Bush aides say U.S.
foreign assistance to Latin
America totals about $1.6 bil-
lion annually. But Chavez has
pledged at least $5.4 billion to
18 Latin American and
Caribbean countries since 2005.

IF you ever thought that big

Antoine Brown he has a suc-
cess story that even he some-
times can't believe.
Brown has been promoted to
the position of hotel manager
at Sandals Regency Golf Resort
and Spa at La Toc in St Lucia,
an accomplishment that his pre-
vious general manager, Stephen
Ziadie said is a testament to
Antoine's strong desire for
excellence and commitment to
everything he undertakes.
"Antoine epitomises every-
thing that Sandals holds dear in
the delivery of customer service
to our guests," Mr Ziadie said.
"Since joining Royal Bahami-
an more than nine years ago,
Antoine has proven that there
are many opportunities that are
available not only on the prop-
erty but also within the Sandals
chain. His achievements over
the years demonstrate that hard

In 1997, Brown joined San-
dals Royal Bahamian as restau-
rant manager; three years later
he was promoted to assistant
food and beverage manager. In
July to August 2003 Brown
served as acting food and bev-
erage manager at Sandals
Grande St Lucian Spa and
Beach Resort in St Lucia and
in September he travelled to
Beaches Turks and Caicos
Resort and Spa in Turks and
Caicos to assist with the food
and beverage aspect of the
Ultra Awards, Sandals premier
awards for tour operators.
In October of that year, he
was returned to Sandals Grande
St Lucian before being trans-
ferred to Sandals Halcyon
Beach Resort in Castries, St
Lucia as food and beverage
manager in December 2003.
In June 2005 Brown was
again promoted, this time to the
role of executive assistant man-
ager, second only to the gener-
al manager, a feat he described
as something he never dreamt
"Sandals continues to provide
challenges that help me to fur-
ther my knowledge in the ever
changing environment of the
hospitality industry. I have been
successful with Sandals due to
the support available to me such

Brown said that in spite of his
success, he never hesitates to
call on his colleagues to assist
him with any challenges he may
be faced with: "I am of the
assumption that two heads are
better than one."
Since his promotion, Brown
recently returned from a brief
stint in Antigua where he assist-
ed in the opening of the Grand
Pineapple Beach Resort, serv-
ing as acting general manager.
What's next for Brown? "The
next step for me is general man-

the Baharnmas Girl Guides Asso-
ciation recently hosted its
Annual Guide Week Activities.
The activities were centred
around World Thinking Day, a
day set aside to think about the
meaning of Guiding and Scout-
ing, and about Guides and
Scouts around the World. The
week commenced with a
Church Service at St Gregory's
Anglican Church, Carmichael
Road. The message was deliv-
ered by Deacon Berkley Smith.
Prior to the service, guides
along with their leaders paraded
from Bahamas Faith Ministries
to the church.
The Highlight of the week
was the World Thinking Day
Ceremony, held on February 22
on Government House
Grounds. On this day, the
Bahamas Girl Guide Associa-
tion joined their 10 million sister
guides in recognizing the
founder of the Association and
the impact of this organisation
in their various communities.
Celebrating with the Associa-
tion were members of the
Bahamas Scouts Association,
founded by Lord Baden Powell.

THE Government has moved
to strengthen child protection
laws under the Child Protection
Act, 2007, Social Services and
Community Development Min-
ister Melanie Griffin said on
Addressing a group of stu-
dents at the Eugene Dupuch
Law School, at the lecture the-
atre at the College of the
Bahamas, Mrs Griffin said that
the act is intended to strengthen
child protection laws, particu-
larly as the cases of sexual and
emotion abuse continue unabat-
She said that the act has
implications for the various
agencies of the government,
"and so we are diligently work-
ing to bring the act into force,
and we expect that very soon."
"While the act is not a
panacea, I am satisfied that it
is a tremendous improvement
on what was in place before,"
Mrs Griffin added.
She noted that social condi-
tions have changed since the
Children and Young Person
Act in 1947.
"Our efforts on behalf of the
care and protection of children
needed to be brought into the
21st century," she said.
The major issues dealt with
by the act are as follows:
The concept of significant
harm to children
Expanding the definition of
cruelty to a child
Supervision orders, emer-
gency protection orders, care
orders and exclusion orders
Supervision orders are meant
to assist parents or guardians
who cannot control children's
behaviour. Care orders are
appropriate where children are
likely to suffer harm. Exclusion
orders are used where it is nec-
essary to exclude, for instance,
abusers from homes to protect
' It also recognizes the need to
provide children with the infor-
mation and skills they need to
protect themselves from all
forms of abuse.
The act imposes a duty on
persons who have the charge,
care or custody of children to
use their best efforts to protect
them from discrimination, abuse
and neglect and to ensure that
they attend school.
It also provides that after the
death of the mother, the father
of a child born out of wedlock
can only appoint a guardian of
the child if he has been granted
custody of the,child.
Such fathers can only be
granted custody of the child if a
court is satisfied that it is in the
best interest of the child.
The act also provides that a
police officer, social service offi-
cer or any authorised person
who has reasonable grounds to
believe that a child is suffering,
or is likely to suffer, can take
the child and place that child
under emergency protection for
a maximum of 48 hours.

THERE WERE no huge celebra-
tions, no victory lap for the St.
Augustine's College Big Red
It just seemed as if SAC's domi-
nance of the Bahamas Association
of Independent Secondary Schools'
Track and Field Championships has
become such a routine that the only
thing they look for is how many
points they win by.
Yesterday was another of those
low key celebrations for the Big Red
Machines as they rolled out of the
Thomas A. Robinson Track and
Field Stadium with a 326-point mar-
gin over the Queen's College
After three days of competition
that saw a number of schools take
some of the spotlight, SAC accumu-
lated a total of 1,209.50 points for
their 19th straight victory.
Queen's College, who once again
mounted the biggest challenge, had
to settle for second with 883 as the
point margin increased over each
The St. Anne's Bluewaves
emerged as the surprise team in the
championships as they came in third
with 509.50. St. John's Giants slipped
to fourth with 487.50 and the Nas-
sau Christian Academy Suns moved
into fifth with 360.50.
SAC's coach William 'Knuckle-
head' Johnson said it was just anoth-
er day at the track as they did what
"They came out and performed
well. Our seniors wanted to go out in
a blaze of glory and I think they pret-
ty much did that," he stated.
"We knew that QC was going to
be strong, but we couldn't just worry
about QC. We made sure that we
took care of our business. Our ban-
tams coming in also looked strong, so
the future looks bright for us."
Johnson had nothing but praise for
his supporting cast, inclusive of for-
mer student Tito Moss, who worked
with the distance runners; Benedict
Dorsett with the sprinters; Anastacia
Moultrie with the jumpers; John
Todd with the throws and Munnings
with the hurdlers.
After 19 years, Johnson said he
doesn't envision that the feat would
ever be duplicated.
"In the early days we had St.
John's, who were right there in the
fight, then we had Prince Will, who
came along for years, followed by
Faith Temple and now we have QC,"
"This is what helps to motivate us.
We know that we can't just come out
here and lay down and play dead.
So we work hard and come ready to
With a historic 20-year victory in
the horizon next year, Johnson said
they have the team that will be back
to defend their title.
"But we know we have to work
even harder, but the kids are up to
the challenge," he proclaimed. "So
we will try our best not to become
The challenge for the Big Red
Machines will actually come next
month when they compete in the
Bahamas Association of Indepen-
dent Secondary Schools' National
Track and Field Championships.
"We don't know what will happen
yet. That's the same day as our fair
and some of the athletes have
BJCSE," Johnson stated. "But -we
have the team to go out there and
perform very well.
"Based on what they've done in
this meet, we feel that we should be
able to do very well."
SAC, who only lost the title once
in the nationals to St. John's, will
have a stiff challenge from the CR
Walker Knights in the senior divi-
sion and the CH Reeves Raptors in
The Nationals, which bring togeth-
er all of the schools in the country,

WHAT do Aalyah Harris,
Printassia Johnson, Sparkyl
Cash, Sheniqua Ferguson,
Harold Carter and Warren
Fraser all have in common?
They all emerged as double
sprint champions in the 100 and
200 metres in their respective
divisions yesterday as the
Bahamas Association of Inde-
pendent Secondary Schools'
Track and Field Championships
came to a close.
The only athlete who didn't
post the double was Nassau
Christian Academy's Shawn
Lockhart, who claimed the title
as the fastest senior boy in the
Lockhart missed the double
as he was beaten by his team-
mate Karlton Rolle, who won
the 200 in 22.62. Lockhart ran
22.65 for second and CW Sauun-
ders' Brandon Miller was third
"I tried to get out hard,
knowing that I had a strong
runner behind me and a cou-
ple of strong runners ahead of
me," said Rolle. "The first 50. I
decided to go out, relax on the
second 50 and come back hard
on the last 100."
Running as smooth as silk,
Jordan Prince William Falcons'
Sheniqua Ferguson left no
doubt in anybody's mind that
she was the "real deal."
Conming off the curve well
ahead of the rest of the field,
Ferguson blazed down the
straight away to take the senior
girls' 200 in 23.99.
In the 100 ltlhe much antici-
pated showdown with St.
Augustine's College's Cache
Armbrister didn't materialise,
but it did in the 200 if only
for the first 50.
As Ferguson powered from
behind, Armbihrister pulled up
and had to withdraw from the
race on the curve.
SAC's Tia Rolle, second in
the 100, got another second in
the 200 in 25.25. Queen's Col-
lege Leeza Glinton was third
"I think it was a good per-
formance. I'm sure I could run
faster, but this is my third race
for the year, so I just wanted
to take it easy," said Ferguson,
who along with Armbrister is
heading to Auburn University.
As for Armbrister, Ferguson
said she heard when she
screamed, so she knew some-
thing was wrong.
Temple Christian's Warren
Fraser, in the 100, posted the
fastest time of the day in the in
the intermediate boys' 200.
He clocked 22.20 to pull off
the 200 ahead of SAC's Mar-
cus Thompson (22.34) and
Devon Creary (22.42).
"I was trying to get out as
fast as I could coming off the
curve and extend it as I came
clown the track," Fraser stated.
"I sort of got tired at the end,
but it was okay."
On his double victory, Fraser
said "it would have feel better if
my knees were not hurting."
Queen's College Sparkyl
Cash added to her sprint dou-
ble crown when she easily blew
away the field in the interme-
diate girls' 200, winning in
24.79. SAC's Valonce Robin-
son was second in 25.57 and
Nassau Christian Academy's
Javonya Wilson got third in
"All 1 had to do was pray to
God that I got out strong and
bring it home strong," she said.
"I haven't ran the 200 all year,
so I just wanted to come out
here and do my best."
Cash was a triple winner, tak-
ing the long jump as well.
Harold Carter of SAC got his
sprint double when he clocked
23.66 to snatch the junior boys'
200 crown. Temple Christian's
Devaugh Fraser was second in
23.90 and Shaquille Burrows
was third in 24.14.
"The race good. I was able
to get out the blocks, run the
curve hard and push my hardest
to win this race," he lamented.
"It feels good to get a first in
the 100 and 200."
Queen's College Printassia
Johnson was clearly the cream
of the crop in the junior girls
division. She turned in a fan-
tastic performance in winning
the 200 in 24.81 for her sprint
double, breaking the old record
of 25.51 that was set by SAC's
Jordan Prince William's
Teshon Adderley was second
in 27.05 and Kingsway Acade-
my's Randi Hilton got third in
"It was good. I just went for
the time. I wanted to set a new
record for the juniors. I exe-
cuted." she said. "I know I did-
n't have any competition, so I
went for the time."
Johnson not only won the
100. but she also added the long
jump title to her ledger.
Aalyah Rolle, winner of the
bantam girls' 100 and long
jump, took the 200 in 28.16.
Her nearest rival was Willecai
Hart of Queen's College in
29.01. St. Anne's Rikki Barry

COLLEGE BASKETBALL I NCAA TOURNAMENT
Grab a pen: Bracketmania is back
You can color
TAMPA, Fla. On Friday after-
noon, Death came to the 2007
ACC tournament's Florida
phase, which lasted one day longer
than its Duke phase.
Oh, sure, they'll still play the
remaining three games. But it really
goes back to being a North Carolina
There is nobody left for the Tar
Heels to truly despise. There is no
scorching hot con-
K tender, such as Mary-
land, to slap down.
There is not even a
team they can feel
good about outnum-
bering in the stands
GAME and overwhelming on
STORIES: 9B the court, the way
they did Florida State
on Friday and probably would have
done against Miami today.
The Tar Heels will probably have
to settle for just winning the tourney.
"Everybody always acts like I
pooh-pooh the ACC tournament
because there is that thought process:
You play people for nine weeks -
why do you have to play them all
again in three days?" North Carolina
coach Roy Williams said. "But it's
what it is. Since we're here, I want to
win this sucker."
SAME OLD RESULT
For Florida State, the end came
with the suddenness of Bambi Meets
Godzilla. They were noodling around,
trying to get to halftime in good shape
when... STOMP. Game over.
For Miami, the end came with the
augmented cruelty of Carrie.
The ACC's biggest losers (by
record) had won by just being there
Friday. They had charmed the crowd,
done a similar stomp on Boston Col-
lege that North Carolina had done on
FSU and were all but crowned the
tournament Cinderellas. Then the
young men from New England rained
buckets of big shots on the Hurricanes
and left them a heartbroken mess.
FSU never recovered from North
Carolina running off 14 unanswered
points in 3:30 spanning the first and
second halves, but Miami watched
Boston college refuse to die after the
Hurricanes blew out 11 points in 2:19
that spanned the halves.
The game didn't slip away from
Miami as much as it seeped away. The
Canes still had an eight-point lead
with 3:58 left. BC no more showed a
sense of urgency than it would have
for a summer scrimmage. It was as if
BC knew Miami was 12-19 for a reason
- and, eventually, Miami would
reveal that reason to all.
SOMETHING TO BUILD ON
"That's the way they play. They
just stay poised through all situa-
tions," said Miami forward Jimmy
Graham, who committed a charge and
missed short jumpers on consecutive
possessions as the Hurricanes' 62-54
lead dissipated. "That's something we
can learn for next year, learn how to'
stay poised like they do. It didn't mat-
ter what kind of run we went on -
they were right there."
Graham personifies the Hurri-
canes, a physical, diligent bunch that
neither gets nor gives cheap baskets.
They know how to foul hard without
In overtime, when Graham fouled
out, fans stood and applauded the raw
effort in his 12 points, five rebounds
and two charges taken. It wasn't an
ovation, but it was acknowledgement.
Speaking of acknowledgement,
Florida State got a kind one from Wil-
liams when he was asked if FSU was
worthy of the NCAA Tournament.
"There's no question in my mind,"
Williams said. "They did not lose to a
team that's not in the top 50 in RPI.
"I have a hard time believing
they're not one of the top 65 teams in
the country," Williams said. "It would
be a shame for people to not see [FSU
star] Al Thornton in the NCAA Tour-
Maybe the Selection Gods will
notice that Florida State beat Florida
and Maryland. Maybe they will notice
that five ofFSU's losses came while
guard Toney Douglas was out with a
broken shooting hand, and that Doug-
las has returned to the lineup. Or
maybe they will notice that his shoot-
ing hand still hasn't returned.
FSU will find out Sunday, hours
after North Carolina winds up what is
becoming its own private party.
BY TIM DAHLBERG
It's time to start filling out
NCAA Tournament brackets and
tossing a few dollars into the pot.
The office pool party to end all
office pool parties is back.
On Sunday, the NCAA will fill
out the 65-team field that will lead
to the promised land of the Final
Four, in Atlanta. By Monday morn-
ing, millions of college basketball
fans will have brackets in their
e-mails or fax machines, and office
copiers everywhere will be spitting
out even more of them.
It's bigger business than Las
Vegas, and it's a bargain, too -
usually $5, $10 or $20 a person.
Bettors will stay up overnight to
get a seat to watch the action in the
Vegas sports books, and $80 mil-
lion to $90 million is expected to
be bet legally on the games in
Nevada. By one FBI estimate a few
years ago, the office pools are
worth $2.5 billion.
The NCAA doesn't much like it,
and some bosses fret that employ-
ees won't get their work done
because they are watching games
or checking scores on websites.
But it has become an annual rite of
spring enjoyed equally by Wall
Street tycoons and the people who
park their cars.
"It takes away the winter gloom
and puts it into a spring fever," said
Fred Kirsch, office m manager at the
Furniture and Appliancemart in
Wausau, Wis., where 65 people
already have signed up, at $20
apiece. "It takes away from the
everyday work environment, too.
"This is something that livens
it up. We are waiting impatiently
for the brackets to form."
There are stories of far-more-
expensive pots getting up to
$100,000, but, for the most part, the
pools are a low-budget, low-
pressure way to keep the interest
up for people who have never
heard of Winthrop or Wright State.
A survey by career publisher
Vault Inc. found that 27 percent of
employees participate in March
Madness pools, and that a third of
them take at least 30 minutes at
work to fill out their brackets.
"The bosses don't care as long
as the work gets done," said Andy
Carver, who runs a $10-per-person
pool for 20-30 employees at the
trucking company where he works
in Cicero, N.Y. "With the com-
puter, it really only takes a few
minutes, so it's not like I'm cheat-
ing them out of time."
With high-speed Internet access
common in many offices, the urge
to keep tabs on favorite teams is
becoming more difficult to resist.
CBS is doubling its Internet band-
width this year so that 300,000
people can watch video streams of
NCAA Tournament games at any
given time, with a target audience
that is generally assumed to be
The network is even offering a
"Boss" button, which can be hit if
viewers see office supervisors
coming. The button silences the
audio and causes a fake spread-
sheet to pop up.
Businesses are fighting back
with technology such as that
offered by Websense Inc. to
block access on company comput-
ers to sites workers that use to
watch games or follow scores.
COLLEGE BASKETBALL I BIG TEN TOURNAMENT
comes on strong
BY RICK GANO
CHICAGO Greg Oden took a half to get
acclimated. Once he settled in, he became the
offense force No. 1 Ohio State needed as the
Buckeyes reeled off their 15th victory in a row.
"This is my first go-around in these type of
tournaments, so I just feed off the guys that have
been there before," Oden, Ohio State's prize
freshman, said Friday after his
second-half performance pow-
ered a 72-62 victory over Michi-
gan in the Big Ten quarterfinals.
Oden scored 15 of his 22 points
in the second half as the Buck-
eyes fought off the Wolverines,
who had a 47-25 rebounding edge
but still couldn't stop Ohio
State's 7-foot center.
"I was just trying to do some-
thing for us to win. I was just trying to go at the
other team and fire my team up," Oden said. "It
was just to be more aggressive, take what the
defense was giving us. They weren't doubling,
so I had to go to work."
Oden, who hasn't decided if his freshman
season will be his only one with the Buckeyes
before heading to the NBA, scored 11 of his
points in the final 8:27 after the Wolverines had
pulled within four points.
Oden was 8-for-12 from the field and 6-for-10
from the free-throw line, and he also contrib-
uted eight rebounds and four blocks.
Ohio State (28-3) hasn't lost since a defeat
Jan. 9 at Wisconsin. The Buckeyes, who kept
themselves on tracks the No. I overall seed in
the NCAA Tournament, will play Purdue today
r in the Big Ten semifinals.
Ohio State posted its third victory in as many
3 attempts this season against Michigan (21-12),
which is hoping to make the NCAA Tourna-
ment for the first time since 1998.
BRIAN KERSEY/AP Ron Lewis added 16 points and Mike Conley
CENTER STAGE: Greg Oden of Ohio State shoots over Michigan defender Courtney Smith Jr. had 13 for the Buckeyes. Lester Abram scored
on his way to scoring 22 points Friday. The Buckeyes advanced to play Purdue today. 13 and Jerret Smith had 12 for the Wolverines.
GOLF I PODS CHAMPIONSHIP
Late birdie gives Leaney the second-round lead
BY DOUG FWERGUSON
PALM HARBOR, Fla. On a
golf course where Stephen Leaney
said there were no easy holes, he
had a simple explanation for how
he wound up atop the leaderboard
Friday at the PODS Championship.
"I've probably holed more putts
than anyone," Leaney said.
Staring into a bright sun that
toyed vyith his depth perception,
Leaney watched a 40-foot birdie
putt on the last hole tumble in for a
birdie and a 4-under 67, giving him
a one-shot lead over Heath Slocum
on an Innisbrook course that won't
let anyone get too far ahead.
Defending champion K.J. Choi
and Chris DiMarco were among
those another shot behind, but the
true measure of this tournament
was found farther down the leader-
board. Only 37 players remained
under par, and 27 of them were
within four shots of the lead.
Brad Faxon was only four shots
behind until he struggled down the
stretch and made the cut on the
number. Even so, he and the others
in last place were only eight shots
"When you shoot under par on
this golf course, you've got to feel
pretty good," said Slocum, who felt
great after finishing with a 69.
Putting is imperative at any
tournament, but it has been key for
Leaney. He couldn't remember the
last time he made more than a few
putts longer than 10 feet, but he
shouldn't have a problem now. The
AUSSIE RULES: Stephen Leaney.
shortest of his six birdie putts was
12 feet. The 40-footer on the 18th
hole gave him the lead, and he even
picked up what he called a miracle
birdie along the way.
Leaney had 250 yards for his
third shot on the par-5 fifth. He hit
it into the rough, then chipped in.
"This golf course just wears you
out," said Leaney, a 37-year-old
Australian. He was at 6-under 136.
Course officials were concerned
when the tournament moved from
late October to early March, caus-
ing a drastic change in the grass.
Instead of the dry, crispy condi-
tions in the fairway and prevalent
Bermuda rough, the rye grass used
in Florida over the winter to keep a
green look to the course has made
it play longer, and at times softer.
Some thought the course might
be playing a little easier.
"Just look at the board,"
DiMarco said after finishing with
his second consecutive 69.

WASHINGTON Carolina goalie
Cam Ward recorded his second career
regular-season shutout both against
Washington and Justin Williams,
Niclas Wallin and Andrew Ladd scored,
leading the Hurricanes past the Capitals
3-0 on Friday night.
Ward made 25 saves for the defending
Stanley Cup champions, who entered the
day in a three-way tie for the eighth and
final Eastern Conference playoff berth
with the idle Toronto Maple Leafs and
New York Rangers.
The Capitals have lost six consecutive
games and 11 of 12. The Hurricanes had
lost three of their previous four games,
scoring only six goals in that span. The
offense was a bit better although Wal-
lin's goal was an empty-netter with 29.9
seconds left but credit goes to Ward
and his defense for holding Alex Ovech-
kin and Co. in check.
Ovechkin and Alexander Semin, the
Capitals' top two scorers, were limited to
a combined eight shots.
And Carolina's penalty-killing unit
continued its recent form. The Hurri-
canes came in having killed off 27-of-28
penalties over the previous eight games.
Washington went 0-for-5 on the power
Ward had two shutouts during the
playoffs en route to being the MVP of the
Hurricanes' run to the title.

SIMON GETS SUSPENDED
UNIONDALE, N.Y. New York
Islanders enforcer Chris Simon was sus-
pended indefinitely Friday by the NHL,
one day after his vicious, two-handed
stick swing to the face of New York Rang-
ers forward Ryan Hollweg. Simon, who
was given a match penalty Thursday
night for deliberate attempt to injure, was
summoned to a league hearing set for
today in New York.
Hollweg took a few stitches in the chin,
but was not seriously hurt. Simon likely
will be feeling the sting of his actions for
quite some time.
The length of the banishment won't be
determined until the hearing with league
disciplinarian Colin Campbell.
The suspension could be as long as
those given to Todd Bertuzzi and Marty
McSorley following their violent infrac-
tions that also gave a black eye to hockey.
The Islanders have 15 regular-season
games left, and might be without Simon

North Carolina flogs FSU; BC wins in OT
From Miami Herald Wire Services
TAMPA, Fla. An Atlantic
Coast Conference title is about
the only thing missing from
Roy Williams' resume as a
head coach, and he says it
would be really sweet to win
one this weekend.
"Everybody always acts like
I pooh-pooh the ACC tourna-
ment because there is that
thought process: You play
people for nine weeks why
do have to play them all again
in three days? But it is what it
is," Williams said Friday after
his eighth-ranked Tar Heels
beat Florida State 73-58 in the
"Since we're here, I want to
win this sucker," Williams
said. "There's no question in
my mind I'd like to win it. I
would like the Carolina Blue
people to have more bragging
rights than anybody else."
Wayne Ellington scored 18
points and Ty Lawson had 14,
and the Tar Heels' depth and
balanced attack were simply
too much for the Seminoles'
one-man show, Al Thornton.
FSU never led, and Thorn-
ton the ACC's leading
scorer and the runner-up for
conference Player of the Year
- scored 12 points before
fouling out with more than 6
minutes left to play.
"I really didn't get in an
offensive rhythm, but I had
some great looks," Thornton

said. "The ball just wasn't
going in for me."
North Carolina (26-6), hop-
ing to win its first ACC tour-
nament title since 1998,
advanced to play Boston Col-
lege today, reversing a trend of
upsets in the tourney. The
higher-seeded team lost every
game in the first round.
Williams led the Tar Heels
to a national title two years
ago after losing in the ACC
tournament. Duke, which has
dominated the league's signa-
ture event since Carolina last
won it, lost on Thursday.
"It would be great because
I've never won an ACC tour-
nament since I've been here,
even being on a team that wonr
a national championship,"
North Carolina senior
Reyshawn Terry said. "So it's
very important to me and my
team and my coaches. It's very
big for us."
The Tar Heels, the No. I
seed after tying Virginia for
the league's best regular-
season record, pulled a waxy
during an 18-2 run that bdilt
their lead to 48-28 early in the
second half. The closest FSU
(20-12) got was 12 points.

From Miami Herald Wire Services
ATLANTA Kentucky was set to
advance in the Southeastern Confer-
ence tournament on Friday .after-
noon. The Wildcats merely needed
Jodie Meeks to sink one more free
throw, and the freshman had not
missed from the line all day.
Then the improbable happened.
Kentucky was called for a lane
violation before Meeks attempted the
clinching free throw. Jamont Gordon
raced down to hit a tying 3-pointer at
the buzzer, and Mississippi State
went on to an 84-82 overtime victory
in the SEC quarterfinals.
It was another disappointment for
the Wildcats (21-11) in a season that
has failed to meet expectations. The
stunning loss is sure to turn up the
heat on coach Tubby Smith, espe-
cially when he took blame for the
Meeks swished the first of two
free throws to put the Wildcats ahead
76-73 with 5.1 seconds left to play in
regulation. ABut he never got to
shoot the second one.
Smith instructed Sheray Thomas
to drop back on defense, and Thomas
started to comply. But he jumped
away from the lane a split-second
after the official had flipped the ball
"We wanted to get somebody off
the lane," said Smith, already under
fire for a fourth-place finish in the
SEC East. "I didn't see the official
pass the ball. It was probably my fault
to tell him to move off the line."
Mississippi State coach Rick
Stansbury stormed onto the court to
protest, but the officials already had
picked up the violation. They cut off
Stansbury near midcourt, wiped out
Meeks' second free throw and
awarded possession to the Bulldogs
"It definitely shocked me,"
Thomas said. "I've never seen any-
thing like that before."
Stansbury said he willing to risk a
technical foul to make sure the offi-
cials had spotted the mistake.
"It was a very obvious lane viola-
tion," said Stansbury, who was so
hoarse after the victory that he could
Gordon, who scored 26 points,
took the inbounds pass and raced up
the court, slipping away from a Ken-
tucky defender with a cross-over
dribble and launching a shot from at
least 2 feet behind the e-point arc.
The ball hit nothing but net as the
buzzer went off, forcing overtime.
The officials took a quick look at
the replay, but there was no doubt
that Gordon's shot was good.
"Coach called a great play," said
Gordon, who was 9-of-16 from the
field and grabbed 11 rebounds. "He
told me to line up on the opposite
side of the ball so I could get on my
left side and curl into it.
"Oh, man, giving my team a
chance, it was a great feeling to me."
Gordon fell onto his back as the
shot went through, then got up and
thumped his chest toward the Ken-
The Bulldogs, who were the top-
seeded team from the weak SEC
West but might need to win the tour-
nament to receive an NCAA invita-
tion, got another huge break in the
final minute of overtime when Meeks
missed an open layup after slipping
loose under the basket.
Mississippi State took off the other
way, passing ahead to Barry Stewart
on the fast break. He went up strong,
rolling in the shot for an 83-82 lead
despite being fouled by Randolph
Morris with 24.7 seconds to go.
Stewart missed the free throw,
giving Kentucky another chance to
escape with the victory. But Joe
Crawford's driving shot was blocked
by Richard Delk. Stewart grabbed the
rebound and was fouled with 3.7 sec-
onds left to play.
Stewart made one free throw, and
the Wildcats quickly called time after
getting the ball to midcourt. Again,
the Mississippi State defense came
up big. Stewart slapped away the
inbounds pass to Crawford, and Gor-
don grabbed the ball in the corner
and held on until the horn went off.
Only then did Gordon hurl the ball
toward the roof of the Georgia Dome.
The Bulldogs advanced to today's
semifinals game against Arkansas.
Morris had a huge game for Ken-
tucky, with 29 points and 15
rebounds. Crawford had 20 points,
and Meeks, who was 5-of-5 at the foul
line, added 14.
"My intent coming into the game
was to play physical and get their
post player in foul trouble," Morris
He did just that. Mississippi State
center Charles Rhodes fouled out in
the opening seconds of overtime
after scoring 15 points.
Kentucky overcame a 14-point def-
icit in the final 11ll/ minutes of the
second half but couldn't complete the
comeback. Even so, the Wildcats are
still expected to receive an invitation
to the NCAA Tournament.
Of course, it might take a while to
get over this loss.
"Jodie probably would have made
that shot," Smith said, pondering the
free throw that never happened.
tions about whether the Tar
Heels had done enough to
ensure themselves a No. 1 seed
in the NCAA Tournament.
Tar Heels forward Tyler
Hansbrough, whose nose was
broken when he was elbowed
during the closing seconds of
North Carolina's victory over
Duke on Sunday, wore a pro-
tective mask and scored six
points on 3-for-7 shooting
before fouling out for the first
time this season.
Boston College 74,
Miami 71 (OT): Tyrese Rice
scored a career-high 32 points,
including a key 3-pointer near
the end of regulation and two
huge free throws in overtime
and the Eagles survived a big
scare from the Hurricanes'.
Rice carried Boston College
for much of the game and
picked up the slack for leading
scorer and ACC Player of the
Year Jared Dudley, who fin-
ished with 12 points.
Dudley was quiet most of
the game but stepped up in
overtime, hitting a jumper and
then converting a three-point
play that put fourth-seeded
Boston College (20-10) ahead
72-71 with 1:51 remaining.
The 12th-seeded Hurri-
canes (12-20) had several shots
to regain the lead, but none of
them fell. Anthony Harris
missed a 3-point attempt, and
Jack McClinton's baseline
scoop shot hit the side of the
backboard. Miami was then
forced to foul, and Rice made
both free throws to make it a
three-point game with 3.1 sec-
onds left to play.
The Hurricanes had one
final chance,: but Harris
couldn't get a 3-pointer off
before the final buzzer.
North Carolina State
79, Virginia 71: Gavin Grant
scored nine of his 20 points in
the final 2 minutes and the
Wolfpack rallied from a 14-
point halftime deficit to pull
off its second consecutive
upset in the tournament.
A night after ending Duke's
reign as tourney champions,
10th-seeded North Carolina
State (17-14) rode Grant and
Brandon Costner into the
semifinals by shooting 74 per.

Opening lead two of spades.
A fine declarer is always on the
lookout for an unlikely lie of the
cards when he plays a contract that
appears to be a cinch. It is easy
enough to do well when suits break
normally; the trick is to do well when
suits break abnormally.
Here is a typical example. South
was in three notrump, and West led a
spade. Declarer ducked twice and
took the third round with the ace. He
then played the ace of clubs, on
which-East showed out, and the hand
What had appeared a moment
before to be a shoo-in for 10 tricks -
seven clubs and three aces -
changed drastically when East failed
to follow to the first club. South
struggled a while, but eventually
went down two.
Had South taken the proper pre-
cautions to guard against a 4-0 club
break, however, he could not have
failed to make the contract. As soon
as dummy came down, he should
have realized that only a 4-0 club
division could defeat him, and his
sole concern should have been to
guard against that possibility.
There was a simple way to do
this. After both opponents followed
to the third spade, proving that the
opposing spades were divided 4-3,
he should have led a low club from
his hand. The worst that could hap-
pen then would be that the defense
would take three spades and a club to
hold him to three notrump.
It is true that in most hands this
precautionary measure would have
cost South an overtrick or two -
since the clubs were much more
likely to be divided 3-1 or 2-2 but
this minor investment to assure mak-
ing a vulnerable game was well
worth the price.

ARIES March 21/April 20 .
There's no use trying to knock down
a brick wall with just your hands,
Aries, you're going to need a little; i.
help with that important obstacle. -
Cancer lends a helping hand.
TAURUS April 21/May 21 '1
You've got.a spring in your step,
Taurus, and it could be due to that
new relationship which is blossom- -
ing. Expect some good fortune to
arrive in your wallet as well.
GEMINI May 22/June 21
Spent another all-nighter worrying
about work issues? Don't let your job
take up more than its necessary share
of your day. This is an unhealthy way ,
to live so make a change soon.
CANCER June 22/July 22 -.: :
You have plenty of plans and ambi-
tions, yet few resources to make the
dreams a reality. It's best-if you ,
start seeking assistance in influen- .
tial places. Consult Scorpio for
LEO July 23/August 23
A visit to the doctor has you upset, but
there's no need to-be, Leo. You are
making a mountain out of a molehill.
Do some Internet research and ask
around -you'll get find some clarity.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
Sometimes it seems like life is just
passing you by, right Virgo? It's
fine time you stop watching the '
train scoot by and climb aboard.
Cancer takes the ride, too.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
A new business venture has you see-
ing green profits that is, Libra. Yet,
all is not what it seems, so don't rush
into anything just yet. Concentrate on
some research before investing.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
As usual, in your quest'to be "the
best" you've taken on more than you r
can handle, Scorpio. You may just
have to give in to defeat for once.
Forget about extra work on Monday.
You've taken a gamble on that
attractive stranger and now you're
ready to see if this person is the one.
If you don't find a connection by
Thursday, it might be best to throw
this one back and keep fishing. -
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Someone close to you is giving you
bad vibes this week, Capricorn. Trust
your intuition but don't make any rash
moves. Ask Virgo for a second opinion.
Make time for fun on Wednesday.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18 ,
After a bit of consideration, you've .
decided to play "the wanderer" for a
while. An extended vacation or just a '
time for reflection seems best. Make
this a solo trip to really reap the benefits.
PISCES Feb'19/March 20 I
If your pockets seem empty, Pisces, it
could be that you haven't been as
thrifty as you hoped. Perhaps birthday
riches will come your way next week
when you wish on your candles.

the expert sitting with his back

visualising moves announced by
his opponents. World blindfold
records dimaxed in a
grandmaster taking on 45

of a day. Nowadays blindfold
chess has become high tech in
the annual Monaco invitational

GMs si at a computer screen
showing only an empty
chessboard and the opponent's
latest move, and must visualise
the rest. When the event started
a decade ago there were
numerous elementary blunders,
but the cash incentives have

games are high class. Here India's
world number two is White, with a
forced win. How did It end?
