Psychiatrist reveals

painkillers were

sent to Nassau for

celebrity, reports

US media


ANNA Nicole Smith's psy-
chiatrist requested a "laundry
list of drugs" to be sent to a post
office box in the Harbour Bay
shopping plaza in Nassau for
the celebrity to access, US
media claimed yesterday.
FoxNews yesterday reported
that it had exclusively obtained
a fax that was written and sent
by Khristine Eroshevich, Ms
Smith's personal psychiatrist
and self-proclaimed "best
friend."
In the document, Ms Eroshe-
vich allegedly requested an
astonishing amount of
painkillers to be sent from a
pharmacy in North Hollywood,


California, to the Bahamas for
M Chase a pseudonym of the
former Playboy playmate.
It is claimed that the request
for these drugs was made on
September 15, 2006 a week
after Dannielynn was born and
five days after Daniel died at
Doctors Hospital.
The list includes high dosages
of the following different types
of painkillers:
Four bottles of 2 mg of Dilau-
did; two millilitre bottles of
Lorazepam (Ativan); two bot-
tles of 350 mg Soma, a total of
180 tablets; one bottle each of

Children sent
home from
school after
power failure

By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
SCHOOL children at SC
McPherson junior school were
sent home, or left to "wander
the streets" yesterday when
Thursday's dramatic power out-
age had still not been repaired,
according to a school source.
Shortly after 3pm on Thurs-
day a transformer exploded at
the rear of the school, sending
plumes of black smoke into the
air, and almost catching the
school afire, said the source.
This morning, students who
were unaware of the electricity
outage, were taken to school only
to be turned away, along with
-the teaching staff, shortly after.
"They had the students piled
up in front of the yard this
morning," said the source.
"Some of the students want-
ed to know they're in a fren-
zy now they wanted to know
how they're going to get to their
parents" as most parents had
already left, the source stated.
"Some of the students gonna
be wandering the streets today,"
it was claimed.
The source alleged that the
disruption was caused after a
message sent to the Ministry of
Education explaining the clo-
sure yesterday afternoon was
not announced on the radio, as
the ministry sought to cover-up
the situation.
However, Cresswell Sturrup,
permanent secretary at the min-
istry, yesterday denied this

Canadian jailed for

laundering $.1bn


Man rescued after

jumping from ship


Christie 'fails to appeal

to Bahamian men'

Tribune Staff Reporter
THE former president of an
Investment Services Company
in the Bahamas was sentenced
to four years in prison for laun-
dering more than $1 billion dol-
lars earned through illicit
means in a Federal sting oper-
ation.
The Canadian, Martin Trem-
blay, 44, of Jonquiere, Quebec,
was sentenced by US District
Judge John F Keenan, who
said Tremblay would be cred-
ited with the year and two
months he has already spent
behind bars.
According to international
reports, prosecutors said Trem-
blay used his company, Domin-
ion Investments Ltd, to launder
hundreds of millions of dollars
- the proceeds of internation-
al narcotics trafficking, securi-
ties fraud scams, income tax
evasion, mail and wire fraud
schemes, and bank fraud,
among other crimes. The funds
were for numerous clients
between 1998 and December


2005 and were concealed using
shell companies and fictitious
entities.
Tremblay, it is reported,
would launder the illicit funds
by transferring them into Unit-
ed States bank accounts and
offshore bank accounts in
Canada, the Bahamas, and
elsewhere around the world.
To further conceal the source
and nature of these funds,
Tremblay and his co-conspir-
ators created shell companies
and fictitious entities, using the
same false nominees, address-
es, and telephone numbers, to
launder the illegal proceeds.
Between 2003 and 2004,
Tremblay laundered more than
$1 billion through his Domin-
ion Investments-related bank
accounts. The indictment
includes a forfeiture allegation
seeking forfeiture of these
funds.
"Tremblay was captured as a
result of an undercover sting
operation conducted by the
Strike Force in 2005, during

A CRUISE ship passenger
on his way to Nassau jumped
overboard shortly after mid-
night yesterday, falling 60 feet,
only to be picked up by a ves-
sel searching the area a full
eight hours later.
Michael Mankamyer, 35, of
Orlando, reportedly launched
himself from the balcony of his
room aboard the ship Carni-
val Glory into dark water
around 30 miles off Fort Laud-
erdale at 12.45am.
Luckily for the passenger,
who was said to have been
drunk at the time, his absence
was quickly noted and a report
was made to the US Coast
Guard almost immediately,
according to the Sun Sentinel.
However, despite the quick
reaction, it was not until
8.45am that rescuers aboard
the Miami cutter Chandeleur
found Mr Mankamyer, and
had him airlifted to Jackson
Memorial hospital.
Rescuers, who noticed Mr


Mankamyer screaming and
waving his arms in the water,
were shocked by his relatively
unscathed condition when
brought aboard. He was suf-
feriitg only from mild
hypothermia.
He was not wearing a flota-
tion device or any other safety
gear when he fell, leading
Coast Guard officials to pro-
nounce it "miraculous" that he
survived the open water.
"It's not that it doesn't hap-
pen, but it's few and far
between when we're trying to
find someone that jumps from
a cruise ship," said Petty Offi-
cer 1st Class Dana Warr,
according to the Sun Sentinel.
The search for the missing
man was conducted by a cruise
ship called the Disney Magic
and the Coast Guard cutters
Chandeleur and Vigorous and
a helicopter.
The cruise ship that Mr
Mankamyer fell from, the Glo-
ry, also participated in the
search until 4.20am, when it

THE Workers' Party claims
Prime Minister Christie has not
been able to appeal to Bahami-
an men during his time in
office and that voters may be
looking for an "alternative"
leader in the general elections.
However, the leader of the
Workers Party, Rodney Mon-
cur, noted that the prime min-
ister has his core support
among female voters.
On Wednesday, the Work-
ers Party held a voter ballot
survey to determine which par-
ty is at the top of the list for the
May election.
The results of the survey
indicate that Hubert Ingraham
is the favourite among male
and female voters.
The National Polling Com-
mission of the Worker's Party
conducted the survey in which
members of the public were
asked to cast their ballots for
the political party of their
choice.
The participants were asked


whether they were voting for
Perry Christie and the PLP or
Hubert Ingraham and the
FNM or neither.
They were also asked if they
were registered to vote.
Mr Moncur said that 700
persons participated in the sur-
vey.
Hubert Ingraham got 325 of
the votes or 46.4 per cent of
the total voters and Prime Min-
ister Christie got 252 or 36 per
cent of the votes.
And there were 123 persons,
or 17.6 per cent, who voted for
neither Ingraham nor Christie.
As for gender, 166 or 51.1
per cent of the males voted for
Ingraham and 103 or 31.7 per
cent of the males voted for
Christie.
159 or 42.4 per cent of the
females voted for Ingraham
and 149 or 39.7 per cent of
females voted for Christie.
According to the survey, 539
of the participants were regis-
tered voters, of which 238 were
men and 301 were women.

Why you vex?


* By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

"I vex because of the recent
reports of the addition of anoth-
er constituency in New Provi-
dence. We don't need more
people sitting in the House of
Assembly just there to collect a
cheque. They could use that
money to spend on improving
the teacher's pay and that of
nurses. We have far too many
constituencies for this little
country. The money they spend
on these MPs and their con-
stituency offices, and their pen-
sions, could be used to increase
the old age pension. When these
parliamentarians finish they get
their big pensions, but then you
have teachers who work hard
they can't get their money? No
man things need to change."

Darville, from Long Island.


"I vex cause none of these
pay phones around this town n
work. And what is BTCs prob-
lem in keeping cellular phones
on? Its like they cut them off
on the weekend or something."

Enlightened one

"I am upset that they are
forcing us men to have to take
our shoes when you go into
these clubs. You have to hold
them in your hands and then
they scan you all over. Its
degrading and they can bet that
I will never go to any of those
places again."

Alex

"I vex that after five years I
finally saw my MP. But low
and behold he came around
asking for me to support him
in the next election. Now tell


me how in the world I can sup-
port someone I don't know
from the man in the moon?
But the audacity of these MPs
is what is so troubling. They
should he walking through
their various constituencies
with their heads held low. I
don't have to call any names.
Theyv know who they are. But
thank the Lord, it ain't long
now!"

Registered to vote.

WHY YOU HAPPY?

"I'm happy because as the
election draws near we'll finally
hear some of the dirt on these
people we are paying all these
thousands and thousands of dol-
lars. Ain't nothing like election
time."

A RASTA group has
repaired dilapidated houses
and installed basic utilities in
homes in the Fox Hill and
Montagu constituencies, The
Tribune can reveal.
The Rastafarians, led by
Priest Diamond, Priest Whit-
man and Rasta, Kenton
"Emperor" Knowles, say that
they believe in community
empowerment and they even
have created a company
called KDK Enterprises,
whose motto is: "Building our
community one project at a
time."
The Rastafarians showed the
media three homes where they
^ had installed plumbing and
built a cesspit, and another
home that was being torn down


to be completely reconstruct-
ed.
The group said that their aim
is to employ local youths on
these projects so that they can
become a part of their commu-
nity's development.
"We have a lot of people in
these communities who are
really feeling the pinch hard,"
Priest Whitman said.
He said these housing pro-
jects are a part of their plea to
the government to empower
the inner cities and Rastafari-
ans.
On February 28. Bay Street
came to a standstill as Rasta-
farians marched to parliament
to demand equal justice and an
end to religious discrimination
in the Bahamas.
Around 70 protesters
marched from Arawak Cay to
parliament captivating both


locals and tourists. Many
marchers wore T-shirts com-
memorating the 200th anniver-
sary of the abolition of slavery.
Others were garbed in tradi-
tional Rasta robes coloured in
red, gold and black playing
African drums that echoed
booming chants in front of the
parliament.
The march.culminated with a
presentation of a document
that listed the demands and
grievances of Rastas and grass
roots people to Prime Minis-
ter Perry Christie in Rawson
Square.
Dion Hanna, who partici-
pated in the march, stated that
successive governments have
not done enough to empower
black people in the Bahamas.
Consequently, he stated that
this march was about raising
the concerns of black people


in the Bahamas, and world-
wide.
He said: "This is about
black empowerment in the
community. People who have
been excluded from the sys-
tem, and people who don't
have a.voice, we are speaking
for them today. This is all
about power to the people. A
new day when our politics fall
on the wayside, and the inter-
est of the people come for-
ward now. We talking' about
the rights of prisoners; the
rights of young children to go
to school; the rights of poor
people to have land, and own
land, while being able to pro-
duce in their own country;
and, not have to be slaves and
second class citizens and
employees. We want to be
entrepreneurs, we want to be
employers, we want to get this


nation into our own hands."
The march came on the heels
of a decision by the Rasta com-
munity to register and perhaps
vote for the first time.
"We are all about strength-
ening the poor people and the
have-nots," Rasta Knowles told
the media yesterday.
Asked how the residents in
Fox Hill felt about the projects,
Priest Diamond said:
"The people say Rasta, you
are almost like an angel sent
from God to help deliver us
from the problems and situa-
tions that we face."
At the moment, the group
said they have been financially
assisted by radio talk show host
Michael Pintard and Montague
MP Brent Symonette, but they
are pleading for more mone-
tary assistance from the private
sector.


millionn contract signed for sea



walls and projects in North Andros


* By BRENT DEAN

MINISTER OF WORKS
Bradley Roberts signed a con-
tract for nearly $2 million on
Thursday to repair seawalls and
upgrades to other infrastructure
in North Andros.
The project consists of three
miles of road work; the repair of


1,000 feet of existing seawalls;
the construction of 2,200 feet
of new seawalls; and the con-
struction of new timber bridges
in Davey and Miller's Creeks.
Mr Roberts was accompanied
to Lowe Sound by the area's
MP, Vincent Peet, whom he
credited as a strong advocate
for the interests of his con-


stituents.
During the press conference
for the contract signing, Mr
Roberts made politically
charged remarks, reflecting the
imminence of the upcoming
election.
"It should be clear to all that
Vincent Peet has been able to
get Perry Christie's PLP to gen-
erate a higher level of govern-
ment sponsored programmes in
North Andros, in just under five
years, than was generated in the .
preceding nine and a half years
of the FNM administration," he
said.
Mr Peet stated that the
enhancement to the infrastruc-
ture in the settlement will aid
in preserving historic Lowe
Sound and will facilitate a
"rebirth" in this part of Andros.
"This settlement has been
dying in a way, for some time.
People have been moving out
in to the new extension of Lowe
Sound. My view is that we
should preserve those historic
parts of the Bahamas and
Andros, so that generations
unborn can see what life use to
be like," he said.
The contract for the upgrades
was awarded to a Bahamian
contractor, Emile Knowles, of
Knowles Construction and
Development Company. This
company recently received an
$8.8 million contract for the
completion of the Sir Milo But-
ler highway in New Providence.
The company has also
worked on seawalls in eastern
New Providence, Cat Island and
Sal Salvador. along with repairs
to runways and roads in Rum
Cay and Great Harbour Cay.
Mr Knowles noted that he
will seek to use as many resi-
dents of Lowe Sound as possi-
ble on the project, and that the
project will begin in three to
four weeks.
The European Union con-
tributed 600,000 Euros to the
project. However, Mr Roberts
criticised the evaluation process
of the ELJ. He stated that the
protracted application and eval-
uation process of the EU is par-
tially responsible for the delay
in beginning the project.
"I have never seen such com-


plicated system to get funds
from a big organisation like
the European Union. It is
tedious, it is elongated and it's
a lot of time spent in pursuing
that money. Thai is the reason
why there is a delay in this pro-
ject," Mr Robert stated.
Mr Roberts also unveiled
the plan for a new primary
school in Lowe Sound, that


will cost nearly $2.5 million.
The school will include a pre-
school, a 400m track, a library,
music room, science labs, six
classrooms and will also func-
tion as a hurricane shelter.
Mr Roberts stated that it is
his intention to sign a contract
for the construction of the
school by the third week in
April.

o In brief

DPM: Time

to bring
order back
to the streets

AGGRESSIVE driving, the
failure to obey traffic signals
and drinking and driving will
no longer be tolerated in the
Bahamas, Deputy Prime Minis-
ter Cynthia Pratt said.
Mrs Pratt said the govern-
ment is moving to "bring order
back to our streets."
She pointed to the proposed
amendments to the Road Traf-
fic Act, which aim to help
reduce the number of crashes
and deaths on Bahamian
streets.
However, Mrs Pratt said this
must be coupled with vigorous
enforcement of existing traffic
regulations and additional pub-
lic awareness campaigns.
Addressing parliament in
support of amendments to the
Road Traffic Act, she said the
number of fatalities as a result
of traffic crashes is "clearly too
high."
The deputy prime minister
said a culture has been allowed
to develop over the years in
which Bahamians who "will-
ingly and respectfully" obey the
traffic laws and regulations in
the United States of America -
were allowed to show very little
respect for the same laws and
regulations at home.
"This includes running red
lights especially in the evenings,
drinking and driving and using
excessive speeds."
Mrs Pratt said police officials
concluded that the prevailing
causes of fatalities were exces-
sive speeding, poor judgment
and driving under the influence
of mind altering substances.

A HIGH school and local

THE TRIBUNE


FOREIGN Affairs Minister Fred Mitchell has urged voters in Fox Hill to "remember

your history". Taking him at his word, Tribune staff have been investigating the

recent history of Mr Mitchell. It makes interesting reading...





me History does no favour s




_pe for 'spoilt brat' Mitchell
a-,'p-


*By JOHN MARQUIS

AS he set a copy of the
Bahamas constitution on fire
under the fig tree outside the
Supreme Court, Fred Mitchell
said: "I intend to smite every
enemy that dares to launch out
against me."
At the time he was leader of
the People's Democratic Force,
a movement which proved to
have about as much force as a
powder-puff and as much
impact on this country's politi-
cal life as Paul Adderley's
National Democratic Party.
Namely, none.
However, it was a significant
warning of Mr Mitchell's polit-
ical tactics, and an early sign of
what critics call his vindictive
nature. And, come the Internet
age., he made good on this
promise by launching a vicious,
mendacious website that per-
sists to this day.
According to Fox Hill voters,
however, this is probably the
only promise Mr Mitchell has
kept in a political career which
has veered from one party to
another in opportunistic pur-
suit of public approval.
As his FNM challenger Dr
Jacinta Higgs told The Tribune
this week, Mr Mitchell is more
concerned with image huge,
Third World posters bearing his
portrait than getting to grips
with the issues that concern the
electorate.
She wants voters there to
engage in a "silent revolution"
to send him packing. With old
ladies chasing his campaigners
"off the porch" sometimes
making their point by throwing
basins full of dirty washing-up
water all over them the signs
are that'they are heeding her
words.
In urging Fox Hillians to
"remember their history" a
reference to the community's
origins as a slave settlement -
political observers feel Mr
Mitchell is trying desperately to
invoke the race issue because
he knows Dr Higgs has the
measure of him and looks cer-
tain to win the seat.
Even so, we took him at his
word. Tribune staff have been
trawling through the files to
trace the erratic course of Mr
Mitchell's career, his own polit-
ical history. At every turn, say
observers, self-interest and self-
aggrandisement appeared to be
his prime motivation. The burn-
ing of the constitution, whizh
deeply offended many Bahami-
ans, was only part of it.
In fact, the ashes of the con-
stitution were sent by Mr
Mitchell to the then Prime Min-
ister Sir Lynden Pindling "as a
reminder of how our country is
being destroyed." The words
are Mr Mitchell's, not ours.
They show the deep contempt
he felt for the late PLP leader
and pose the obvious question:
"What is he doing in the PLP
now?"
Mr Mitchell, in fact, ended
up in the PLP because the FNM
didn't want him. They refused
to run him as a candidate and
he slunk off in a sulk, bearing
his resentment like a king-size
haversack.
However, when he launched
his "Third Force" in 1989, Mr
Mitchell was insistent that
Hubert Ingraham the FNM


leader who was later to reject
him should become a key
component in his new set-up.
At the time, Mr Ingraham was
the independent MP for Coop-
er's Town, Abaco.
Mr Mitchell's declared aim
then was to inflict a resounding
defeat on the PLP. Like his
long-held desire to be prime
minister, his ambitions proved
delusional.
By December, 1990, Mr
Mitchell's hostility to Sir Lyn-
den culminated with his decla-
ration that the so-called "Father
of the Nation" was, in fact, irrel-
evant to the Bahamas.
"It is time that the Bahamian
people consign him to the scrap
heap of history," he said.
While heaping abuse on Pin-
dling, Mr Mitchell did not forget
current prime minister Perry
Christie, then the independent
MP for Centreville who was
about to rejoin the PLP.
"He ought to be ashamed of
himself walking around with his
head high calling himself Mr
Centreville," said Mr Mitchell.
"We find tremendous resent-
ment on the part of young and


* JULY 29, 1987: Fred Mitchell, in an address to the Kiwanis
AM Club "The Role of the White Bahamian in the Bahamas of
Today and Tomorrow", said that the black Over-The-Hill
businessman had disappeared under the PLP government with
the exception of a liquor merchant


that's the precise charge being
laid at his own door today by
the people of Fox Hill.
Sources there say that, while
Mr Mitchell has been burnish-
ing his international image as
foreign minister, running up
enormous amounts in airfares


don the project, he has not
made a single contribution to
the village's welfare, say his crit-
ics.
In fact, the huge disparity
between words and action have
been a continuing feature of the
minister's career.

Press

It was Mr Mitchell who, dur-
ing his "Third Force" days, was
a vocal supporter of a free
press, and self-proclaimed
champion of human rights.
Today, he is so intent on per-
secuting journalists that he is
mockingly nicknamed "The

old because, without so much
as a by-your-leave, he ends up
back in the Progressive Liberal
Party."
Then he issued a warning to
the man who, in the fullness of
time, would become his leader.
"So we say to Mr Christie, go
right ahead my brother, hold
your head up high, just don't
be surprised if you trip because
you're not looking at what's
happening on the ground."
It's odd that Mr Mitchell
should accuse Mr Christie of
"not looking at what's happen-
ing on the ground" because


at the public's expense, he has
been neglecting the things that
really matter to his own con-
stituents.
They say Mr Mitchell is "all
show and no go", making public
appearances when it suits him,
trying to engineer local events
to his own political advantage,
but having no inclination to get
to grips with pressing social and
educational needs.
Apart from his disastrous
involvement with the Fox Hill
community centre, when the
late George Mackey expressed

* JANUARY 24, 1990: From a balcony overlooking Bay Street,
Fred Mitchell calls for the resignation of the Pindling Cabinet


Minister of Tribune Affairs", a
reference to his continuing
obsession with this newspaper
and its fearless approach to
journalism. Certainly, he says
more about The Tribune than
he does about foreign affairs.:
Even so, it's his troubles with
the PLP that really catch the
eye when one is scrutinising the
Mitchell File.
When Sir Lynden Pindling
threatened to expose elements
of Mr Mitchell's private life (I
can't imagine what the PM was
talking about!) Fred was char-
acteristically ebullient.
"Go right ahead," he told Sir
Lynden. "Just as I have a moth-
er, father, sister, brother and
nephews, you have wife, moth-
er, father, sons and daughters.
"And if that is the way you
wish to play, I'll match you
every step of the way."
Sir Lynden's repeated refer-
ences to Mr Mitchell's private
life goaded the then young cru-
sader to lash out at the prime
minister's "tomfoolery" and
dare him to say more.
Mr Mitchell sent Sir Lynden
"a few choice four-letter words"
and then warned: "Go right
ahead. Charge on! If that is the
level at which the game will be
played, I am fully prepared to
match it step for step. And those
who have information on me, I
have information on them.
"It is time for responsible peo-
ple in this community to stand
up and be counted and denounce
this barbaric practice of passing
around vicious rumours on each
other without any substance. If
we do not stop there will never

mitchelluncensored, which now
exists in another form and con-
tinues to spill out bile on any-
one who crosses Mitchell's path.
Odd, too, that Mr Mitchell
should have said, back in 1989,
that "there is i general pattern
about today in trying to instil
fear through intimidation."
It was Mr Mitchell, remem-
ber, who was the main mover
in trying to get a professional
journalist expelled from the
Bahamas last year for telling
the truth. And it's the website
founded by him, run by one
Russell Dames, that continues
to defame people from all walks
of life in a scurrilous, irrespon-
sible and intimidatory manner.
Most amusing of all in the
Mitchell File, though, is a state-
ment from the PLP's Grand
Bahama branch. Like Dr Higgs,


ImHK LOVE MYWIFE


they knew what they were up
against and dealt with him
accordingly.
Mr Mitchell, said the PLP,
was "a political upstart and
troublemaker" and "a spoilt
brat who deserves a serious
spanking."
What's more, the PLP added,
Mr Mitchell was no more than
"a johnny-come-lately", a self-
styled revolutionary who spout-
ed "garbage" and turned his
back on those who nurtured his
career.
The party lambasted his
"despicable" behaviour and
went on to denounce his burn-
ing of the constitution an act,
they said, "which brings back
vivid memories of Hitler,
Goebbels and their-hated secret
police, the Gestapo."
"Nothing in the line of secular
documents can be more sacred
than the country's constitution,"
said the PLP council of the day.
"Mr Mitchell advocates destroy-
ing it. Clearly, by extension, he
is promoting anarchy and
national upheaval.
"This cannot and will not be
tolerated in this country. Our
people have zero tolerance for
this type of irresponsible behav-
iour, coming, especially as it
does, from one who dares to
aspire to the sacred office of
prime minister of this beloved
country."
The PLP charged Mr Mitchell
with trying to incite rebellion
and described him as "a little
fellow who should be watched
very closely and avoided like
the plague."
The signs are that the people
of Fox Hill will be doing just
that when polling day comes
around. In "remembering their
history", they will be looking
back over Mr Mitchell's politi-
cal past and wondering whether
he is really the man who should
be entrusted with their future.
On reflection, maybe not.

US Attorney Gen Dral should go


IT IS customary for newly elected presidents
to replace large numbers of US attorneys, espe-
cially if the new president is from a different
party. It is not customary for presidents to
sweep out many of their own appointees to
these positions in the middle of their adminis-
tration.
Attorney General Alberto Gonzales caved in
to pressure from the White House for such a
housecleaning in recent months.
Then department officials led Congress to
believe that the eight US attorneys in question
were forced out for performance problems, not
for what now appears to be the real reason in at
least some cases that the prosecutors were not
sufficiently partisan in election and political
corruption cases. Gonzales has lost any credi-
bility he had with Congress and the public as the
nation's chief law enforcer. He should resign.
We opposed Gonzales's nomination two
years ago when, during his confirmation hear-
ings, he failed to disavow two documents that
contributed to the abuse of prisoners at Abu
Ghraib and Guantanamo. One was a memo he
wrote as White House counsel in 2002; in it, he
dismissed Geneva Convention regulations on
prisoners of war as "obsolete" and "quaint"
and said the United States could operate as
though they did not apply to the war in
Afghanistan.


The other document was a 2002 administra-
tion guide on interrogation techniques. Gon-
zales did not write it but discussed it with
administration officials, including its assertion
that the president has the power to authorize
torture despite a 1994 law banning it. Through
his failure to repudiate this memo and his own
views on the Geneva Conventions, Gonzales
marked himself as a lawyer who lacked the
independence to stand up for the Constitution
and the nation's laws and not bend to the will of
his ooss. George Bush.
As attorney general, Gonzales has also failed
to ride herd on the Federal Bureau of Investi-
gation in its use of a powerful tool granted to it
in the USA Patriot Act. That 2001 law allowed
agents to get information about individuals'
banking, phone, and e-mail records without a
judicial warrant even if the individuals them-
selves were not suspected of being terrorists.
It's Gonzales who has the performance prob-
lems, not the US attorneys, including one who is
being replaced at least temporarily by an assis-
tant to Bush aide Karl Rove. Bush has defended
the firings as "appropriate" a shameful admis-
sion that Bush himself believes in partisan justice.
He should admit his own complicity, and replace
Gonzales with a respected attorney who can
restore some integrity to the badly tarnished
Justice Department.


IN HIS Guantanamo hearing, Khalid Sheikh
Mohammed embraced the "enemy combatant"
label that President Bush invented for Al Qae-
da and Taliban suspects. That ought to make
Americans wary of the novel judicial process
there.
Mohammed, the self-identified military oper-
ations chief of Al Qaeda, admitted during a
recent hearing before the Combatant Status
Review Tribunal that he organized the Sept.
11 attacks and many other terrorist actions. In
the transcript, he describes himself as a man at
war, for religious reasons, with an enemy who
has invaded Muslim lands. In his fractured Eng-
lish, he compares Al Qaeda's terrorist attacks to
World War I, World War II, and the American
war for independence against the British.
Killing, he argues, is the language of all wars.
His implication is that his murdering of chil-
dren and innocent civilians in the World Trade
Centre and the 2002 Bali nightclub bombing is
no different from the conventional wars waged
by nation-states.
Mohammed's attempt to normalize his despi-
cable acts should be laughable, but it is fur-
thered by the Guantanamo hearings a process
outside both the American civil legal system
and the Geneva Conventions. The special tri-
bunals that Bush has conjured up are harmful
not only because they deprive the accused of the
fair trials guaranteed in American courtrooms

and of the rights that a court-martial grants to
US soldiers and foreign prisoners of war alike.
The Bush tribunals also are misconceived
because they elevate deluded fanatics like
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed into the imposing
military foes they would like to be instead of
the vicious political criminals they really are.
This is how Mohammed justified his terror-
ism: "'Ve consider we and George Washing-
ton doing same thing. As consider George
Washington as hero. Muslims many of them
are considering Osama bin Laden. He is doing
same thing. He is just fighting. ... So when we
say we are enemy combatant, that right. We
are.
The guilt of the terrorist known as KSM could
be proved beyond a reasonable doubt in any
civil courtroom or military tribunal sanctioned
by the Geneva Conventions. By not giving him
and other detainees a fair trial, Bush makes
their case for the hypocrisy of the secular
democracies. Many detainees picked up in
Afghanistan had nothing to do with Al Qaeda
or the Taliban, and it is particularly embar-
rassing for Americans that Mohammed has to
be the one to plead for them.
A iericans should not have to be told about
injustice by a creature like Khalid Sheikh
Mohammed.

The spectre





of racism in





our politics


EDITOR, The Tribune

THE PLP, or at least certain
shaky candidates of that party,
who are promoting a fear of
white people, should also realise
the folly and significant dam-
age that was done to our
tourism based economy in the
seventies and eighties with such
inane stupidity.
When you teach our people
to hate white people you cannot
make a distinction between the,
perhaps fifteen thousand white
citizens of this country and the
several million white tourists
who provide the very bread and
butter that our people eat.
When the immigration and
customs staff, hotel workers,
taxi drivers, shop staff and just
about any other employee in
this country start to treat our
visitors with the hate and con-
tempt that people like Fred
Mitchell and others want to
teach them, they are actually
strangling our struggling goose.
Fortunately, I agree, that the
vast majority of our 300,000
populace don't really see the
15,000 of us white or conchy joe
people as any kind of threat, so
politically it is a non issue. But if
Mitchell and Co enrage, even a
small percentage of our people


who interact with and serve
white tourists and white foreign
investors, it will undoubtedly
have a significantly negative
impact on all of our people,
both black and white.
And while I am on the sub-
ject of race, it is absolutely
amazing that these same
nitwits can denigrate someone
like R T Symonette, who I
understand came to the capital
as a poor boy from Current
Eleuthera, without even a pair
of shoes. He worked hard all
of his life, long before there
was any UBP, and he was suc-
cessful and yes, obviously
made some money. Is his story
not one which we should be
preaching to our people?
White, Black or any colour in
between. Wherever you come
from, whatever your colour,
slave or free, work hard and
diligently and honestly and you
too can be successful. I remem-
ber personally a situation at
Symonette Shipyard, some
years ago, when one of the
trolley rollers had come off the


ways and Sir Roland, proba-
bly in his seventies then, put
on swim trunks and goggles
and got into the sea to fix this.
problem himself. A wealthy.
man by then but still not afraid
to do the dirty work.

BRUCE G RAINE

March 15, 2007.
(Talking about teaching our'
people to hate white people
brings up an incident experi-
enced by a member of The Tri-
bune staff at Wendy's restau-'
rant this week. The staff mem-
ber is white from an old
Bahamian family.
(A frequenter of Wendy's,,
he went to the restaurant as
usual for lunch. Outside was a
long line of government school'
girls, waiting to go in. When
they saw him, one of them
pointed at him and shouted:
"Quick, call Immigration!"
(Taken aback, he is now con- -
cerned that the racial hatred
being preached by some politi- '
cians has so penetrated the psy-'
che of some of our young black
Bahamians that they are going
to regard all white Bahamians
as illegal immigrants.- Ed).


Some attention to diplomacy


EDITOR, The Tribune

I HAVE been a little taken
aback as I watched our Gover-
nor General Mr. Arthur Hanna
on TV receiving credentials
from foreign ambassadors
accredited to The Bahamas.
The ambassadors come in full
morning dress but Mr. Hanna
receives them in a lounge suit
with a bright red or yellow tie. I
think this is wrong' and gives a
bad impression for our country.


Mr Hanna is one in a distin-
guished line of Bahamian Gov-
ernors General who have
served with distinction since we
got independence. He is well
deserving of this high honour
having served his country for
many years in Government.
Nevertheless I think he
should make an effort to uphold
the high standards of this the
highest office in the land set by
his predecessors starting with
Sir Milo Butler right up to Sir


Don't listen to the US


EDITOR, The Tribune

American people. They have
no right to tell you what to do. I
have great hopes in your sys-
tem and the confidence that you
all know what is best for that
little baby.
Ms Smith had a very good
reason for not letting Mr Birk-
head be involved in the life of
little Dannielynn. Ms Virgie


Arthur has shown no regards
to her daughter Anna Nicole
even after death. Trampling all
over the grave after the service,
is and was the ultimate disgrace
she could have shown to her
daughter.
Leave the little baby with Mr

Smith's wishes. Ms Smith had
planned to marry Mr Stern, but
was sadly taking away by God
before she could proclaim her

EDITOR, The Tribune

A FRIEND of mine is having
a major difficulty because now
that elections are beginning to
show their head in the commu-
nity his political support is divid-
ed.
He, like many Bahamians,
has come to see that both par-
ties play a vital role in the
progress of our nation.
Only a fool would be such a
die-hard FNM that he cannot
see some good which the pre-
sent PLP Government has
done.
Likewise only a bigger fool
would not give the Ingraham
Government credit for the good
they did while in office.
The truth is we should avoid


the low party politics which
divides us and vote for the per-'
sons rather than the party.
The truth is, the only funda-
mental difference between both
major political parties is which is
governing at a particular time.
If all your friends and col-
leagues have to be of a particu-
lar political persuasion then you
are unfit to participate in the
university of One Bahamas.
Each Bahamian should vote
for the candidate of their choice
and show respect, indeed pro-
tect the rights of his Bahamian
brother or sister to do likewise
or otherwise.

bIn brief

China
pledges
more aid
to St Lucia

* ST LUCIA
" Castries
CHINA has pledged more
aid and technical assistance
to St Lucia amid speculation
that rival Taiwan is seeking
to re-establish diplomatic ties
with the small Caribbean
island, according to Associated
Press.
St Lucia's External Affairs
Minister Rufus Bousquet
said Wednesday that Bei-
jing's new aid package was
under Cabinet review, but he
did not disclose any details.
The proposal came shortly
after Taiwanese officials
based in St Kitts and Nevis,
one of the few Caribbean
nations that still maintains
relations with Taipei, met
with St. Lucia Prime Minister
John Compton.
. Compton has not made
public commitmentsto to the
Taiwanese delegation or dis-
closed details about their
January meeting.
But in a speech last month,
Compton, whose party main-
tained ties with Taiwan for
13 years until it was defeated
by the Labor Party in 1996
elections, said St Lucia
"remains firm" in its rela-
tions with China.
China and Taiwan both
engage in "dollar diploma-
cy," trying to win diplomatic
alliances with other nations
by offering aid packages and
reconstruction projects. Tai-
wan has official ties with only
about two dozen countries,
mostly in Africa and Latin
America.

Suspicion some pharmacists may be


involved in counterfeit drugs trade


SOME Bahamian pharma-
cists are suspected of being
involved in the international
trade in counterfeit drugs,
Health Minister Bernard Not-
tage revealed.
The minister asked doctors
to keep in mind that the
Bahamas is being used as a con-
duit for fake drugs bound for
the United States and elsewhere


from other parts of the world
including the UK and Asia.
"What is disturbing about this
is that it is alleged that pharma-
cists located in our country are
participating in this nefarious
and potentially harmful activity.
"There are also allegations
that at least one Bahamian
physician is prescribing phar-
maceuticals through the Inter-


net," Dr Nottage said. "It is
important for you to be aware
of these occurrences and be
mindful of any implications for
the medical allied professions
in the Bahamas."
The minister went on to
reveal another alarming claim:
"In the Bahamas, it has been
reported to me that there are
persons who are 'practicing'


medicine without a license and
impersonating physicians.
"I am told that they current
legislation does not permit them
to be either regulated or
deterred," Dr Nottage said.
"This, I hope, will be changed in
the near future. The unsuspect-
ing public must be protected.
Dr Nottage said the govern-
ment is moving to amend all the


current health related legisla-
tion including the Medical Act
to make it more appropriate for
today's environment.
"At the same time however,
we must also look at those
methods of alternative medical
practices, which are beneficial
to the public and establish
means to regulate and legitimise
them."


Foreign doctors keen to fill




positions on Family Islands


HEALTH Minister Dr
Bernard Nottage revealed that
with Bahamian doctors contin-
uing to shun the Family Islands,
foreign physicians are now
eager to take up the slack.
Dr Nottage explained that he
has received a number of appli-
cations for licenses from expa-
triate doctors who specifical-
ly want to work outside New
Providence and Grand
Bahama.
Challenging Bahamian doc-
tors on a nuniber of issues, Dr
Nottage added that too many
of them are not computer liter-
ate and are not participating in
the "medical information high-
way" by making use of health
information systems.
"Meanwhile, I am getting
requests from foreign physicians
and from investors to set up
tele-medicine practices in the
Bahamas using imported nurses


as the local 'providers' while
they treat the patients from
their facilities in the United
States and elsewhere.
"This is particularly so in
areas where there will be
increased numbers of foreign
residents or tourists who want
to have the assurance they can
access the appropriate level and
quality of healthcare they can
in their home countries should
the need arise," Dr Nottage
said.
"My question to you is, will
the local healthcare profession-
als rise to the occasion or will
they blame the government for
the consequences of their lack
of response?"
Dr Nottage was speaking at
the Medical Association of the
Bahamas' 35th annual confer-
ence held under the theme "An
ounce of prevention... a pound
of cure" at the British Colonial


Hilton on Wednesday.
He told those present that as
the Bahamas becomes an even
more cosmopolitan destination,
there will also be an increase in
the need for multi-lingual or at
least bilingual doctors.
"Physicians who can commu-
nicate in more than one lan-
guage will be an asset as we
move forward in both general
and health tourism."
Dr Nottage also reminded
senior physicians they have a
responsibility to mentor junior
doctors in the field.
"I wish to share with you the
impression I have that junior
physicians, certainly in parts of
the public sector, feel aban-
doned and unguided by their
senior colleagues. Many seem
to feel that they are being used
without concern for their
futures."
This is not typical of a pro-

Nottage says rising cost of healthcare is 'alarming'


MINISTER of Health Dr
Bernard Nottage said that the
rising cost of healthcare in the
Bahamas has become "an
alarming trend".
Dr Nottage was speaking on
the theme "An ounce of pre-
vention a pound of cure" at
the.9pening the 35th annual Sci-
entific Conference of the Med-
ical Association of the Bahamas
at the British Colonial Hilton.
"The government of the
Bahamas presently allocates
upward of 15 per cent of the
annual budget to health cost, one
of the highest percentages in the
region and at the same time we
are, as in many other countries,
documenting increasing mor-
bidity and mortality related to
non-communicable diseases and
their sequels," he said.
- "The 2005 CNCD Prevalence


and Risk Factor Survey
revealed that non-communica-
ble diseases accounted for near-
ly 45 per cent of all deaths in
2001 and comprised seven of
the 10 leading causes of death.
In 2003 the number had
increased to 57.4 per cent of.all..
deaths. The burden of these dis-
eases in this country howevnr
is not measured only in deaths
but also in related morbidity."
He said CNCDs in particu-
lar hypertension, diabetes, coro-
nary heart disease, stroke,
chronic respiratory diseases and
cancers are the leading cause
of morbidity (the state of being
diseased) in the Bahamas.
"Risk factors", Dr Nottage
said, "Such as obesity, seden-
tary lifestyles and inactivity have
high prevalence among our peo-
ple, across all age groups.

"These are risk factors which
can be decreased if not elimi-
nated through the adoption of
promotion/prevention strategies
such as targeted behavior
change, communication activi-
ties as well as the provision of
supportive environments for
individuals to carry out healthy
behaviors.
"Many argue that behavior
modification is almost impossi-
ble therefore the need for
increased focus on treatment of
diseases such as 'diabetes and
hypertension rather than on the
risk behaviors which predispose.
There might be some truth to
that argument but when one
reflects on behavior modifica-
tion which has come about
related to major marketing
campaigns in the entertainment,
fashion, and sporting industries


globally, with positive and neg-
ative consequences we wonder
if it is truly that impossible. The
question then is 'What is main-
tenance of optimal health
worth?' Unfortunately, this
question is often not contem-
plated until optimal health is no
longer around," he said.
Dr Nottage said there is now
a measure of understanding of
the burden of CNCDs on the
health system of the Bahamas.
CNCDs, he said, accounted for
the majority of all hospital
admissions to public hospitals
in 2003. I
"To further characterise this
burden it will be necessary to
consider issues such as lengths
of hospital stay, expensive diag-
nostics, cost for heathcare pro-
fessional hours, and medication
costs, not to mention the cost


attached to emergency evacua-
tions from Family Islands. The
price tag for such evacuations
totaled a quarter of a million
dollars for CNCD related ill-
nesses alone in 2005.
"We should be reminded
here that CNCDs is not the only
group of diseases for which
there is a need to apply preven-
tive strategies to reduce the bur-
den of these diseases on the
health system. Infectious dis-
eases such as STI's, TB and
HIV/AIDS and others such
Malaria and Influenza which
threaten our public's health all
have great potential of con-
tributing to the increasing cost
of healthcare and in large part
can be decreased or eliminated
through the institution of dis-
ease prevention strategies." he
said.

Local media pay visit to Atlantis' new dolphin facility


* ATLANTIS' Teri Corbett, vice president of marine mammal operations gave members of the
local press an in-depth tour of Dolphin Cay as a part of Atlantis' media fun day for the local press.
Corbett is pictured answering questions from the local media.


* THE Tribune's Alison Lowe is pictured with Atlantis' Ter Corbett in the state-of-the-art educa-
tion centre at Dolphin Cay.


MEMBERS of the local
press looked on in fascination
as they were hosted to a tour
of Atlantis' Dolphin Cay and
Aquaventure during a special
Media Fun Day organised by
Atlantis' public relations
department and the marine
and water park operations.
"The public relations team
was honoured to host this very
special group of news


reporters and features writers
from the various print and
broadcast media," said Sandra
Eneas, Atlantis' senior direc-
tor of public relations. "Our
foremost desire was for the
local press to experience the
resort's latest attractions and
facilities first hand. Atlantis'
Dolphin Cay and Aquaven-
ture will certainly enrich the
vacation experiences of the


thousands of \ visitors that trav-
el to Atlantis each year," she
said.
During the tour the press,
which included representatives
of The Tribune, The Bahama
Journal and Love 97 FM, The
Punch and ZNS Television,
got an opportunity to explore
Dolphin 'Cay, home of
Atlantis' 20 Bottlenose Dol-
phins, 17 of which include the


Katrina Dolphins which were
displaced from their previous
home in Gulfport, Mississip-
pi, after being swept to sea
during the infamous hurri-
cane's devastation of the Gulf
States.
The facility is also home to
Atlantis' !1 California Sea
Lions.
Teri Corbett, Atlantis' vice
president of marine mammal


operations gave the group an
in-depth tour of Dolphin Cay.
While there, the reporters and
feature writers were able to
visit the Cay's state-of-the-art
food preparation facility, hos-
pital laboratory, filtration
facility as well as the educa-
tion centre.
.From there, the group was
off to Aquaventure, where
Mark Gsellman, Atlantis'


senior vice president of marine
and water parks operations,
accompanied by the depart-
ment's senior director William
Huddy, led them on a tour of
the newly opened facility.
A major highlight was the
"Power Tower", a 120-foot tall
tower which features four
adrenaline inducing water
slides The Abyss, The Drop,
The Falls and The Surge.

NICHOLLS Town, Andros
Central Andros High School
principal Maxine Forbes says
Bahamians have become so
intolerant and have lost so
much respect for themselves
and each other that "we no
longer know who we are as a
people."
She said this is the reason the
-country is faced with a number
of social and economic burdens
such as crime, unemployment,
teenage pregnancies and drug
abuse.
"This generation is not lost,
they are just uninformed," Ms
Forbes said. "They have not
been taught tolerance; that con-
flicts can be diffused and that
differences and disagreements
can be discussed.


"Instead, we are blaming
BET, politicians and the edu-
cation system. In the meantime.
some parents at home are
teaching their children hatred
of other cultures and people."
Ma Forbes said.
Addressing a ceremony\ dur-
ing the Comnonwealth Dlay\
celebrations at the Noilth
Andros High School in Nicholls
Town, Andros, Ms Forbes said
low self-esteem, intolerance,
hatred and a lack of respect for
each other are by-products of
the failure of parents and adults
to teach lessons of tolerance and
respect to children.
Ms Forbes said theie seems
to be a "growing intolerance"
among persons living through-
out the region, the world, and


indeed the Bahamas, based pri-
marily on differences even
\ within g ioups.

She said thai as a result,

their skin by using ilcaching

(but) their entire bodies are
black from using those bleach-
ing creams because they are not
proud of their blackness.
"Our young men are no
longer respected because they
are too busy wearing their pants
below the waist and 'vibing'
with each other. With the polit-
ical fever in the air, relation-
ships will be destroyed because


of differences in opinions.
Whether it is a fresh wind blow-
ing or keeping the fire burning."
The principal criticised par-
ents and other adults for being
more concerned about "who's
really Anna Nicole Smith's baby
daddy' than they are about
--telling this generation about
the s nruggles thai led to our
independence and ultimately
membership in the Common-
wealth."
"We fail to speak of a time
when the true voices of the peo-
ple were stifled, freedom of
speech was not free and educa-
tion was a gift," she said.
Ms Forbes said teaching tol-
erance and respect for differ-
ences is important for many rea-

Fincher back to form with



serial killer drama Zodiac


ZODIAC

Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal,
Robert Downey Jr, Mark Ruf-
falo, Anthony Edwards.

TWELVE years after he
made his name with serial killer
thriller Se7en, director David
Fincher has returned to the
genre with this fact-based dra-
ma.
Only this time around, Finch-
er has discarded his trademark
murky look and is keeping it
real for possibly his best feature
so far.
Zodiac focuses on the hunt
for the titular serial killer in the
San Francisco Bay area in the
1960s and 70s.
When local newspapers
receive coded messages from
the killer, San Francisco Chron-
icle cartoonist Robert Gray-
smith (Gyllenhaal) takes an
interest in the case an interest
which grows into an obsession
as the years roll by.
Graysmith's story runs con-
currently with that of police
inspectors David Toschi (Ruf-
falo) and William Armstrong
(Edwards) who find them-
selves not only battling with the
case, but the bureaucracy of
police jurisdiction with sur-
rounding states.

al media attention, are expected
to return to court 2.30 pm Tues-
day. Earlier reports had suggest-
ed that a paternity test to deter-
mine whether Larry Birkhead is
the father of Anna Nicole
Smith's daughter, Dannielynn,
was to be ordered yesterday but
that did not happen. There may,
however, be some considerable
development in the matter when
it continues on Tuesday, accord-
ing to sources close the case.
Ms Smith's mother, Vergie
Arthur, is trying to get
guardianship from Howard K.


Dannielynn custody battle


Stern who was Smith's com-
panion and is listed as the father
on the child's birth certificate.
Mrs Arthur claims she can pro-
vide a more stable home for the
infant, who stands to inherit a
fortune. Los Angeles based
photographer Larry Birkhead
is also a part of the guardianship
dispute. Smith gave birth to her
daughter in September, three
days before her 20-year-old son
Daniel died while visiting her
at the hospital.
Howard K. Stem was not-pre--
sent at yesterday's closed court


proceedings. However, his legal
. representative, Wayne Munroe,
appeared on his behalf but would
not comment on the matter to
the media. Ms Smith's mother,
Vergie Arthur, as well as pater-
nity claimant, Larry Birkhead,
who expressed his confidence in
the Bahamian judicial system,
attended court yesterday.
John O'Quinn, a US attor-
ney for Vergie Arthur, was
asked to leave the court pro-
ceedings yesterday after the
judge invoked an order that
only Bahamian attorneys be


present during the closed court
proceedings.
"I feel like it's unfair because
I'm Verge's lawyer and I've
been her lawyer from the start.
I have a deep interest in her
case and in her well being,
which causes me to have a deep
interest in the well bring of her
granddaughter," he said.
Police, attached to the
Supreme Court, had to repeat-
edly turn away a woman who
insisted on seeing Larry Birk-
head. Finally she waited until
Birkhead had got into a car to
leave the court when she tried
to grab hold of him. She was
pulled away by police.

The Royal Bahamas
)efence Force Marching Band
ut on a masterful display of
mowmanship and musicianship
during the North Andros High
school's Commonwealth Day
-lebrations that left students,
administrators, staff and guests
egging for more.
The band duplicated the feat
ie next day in Fresh Creek,
.ndros at the Central Andros
[igh School as part of a two-
ay stopover.
Combining precision moves
ith ingenuity and modern
ance techniques, the band -
:d by Sub Lieutenant Bertram
owleg left the crowd clap-
ing their hands, stomping their
;et and dancing in their seats as
ie officers performed hit after
it after hit of the best Bahami-
n songs.
The hits included "Roach on
4y Bread", "Ghost Move",
Toters", "Call the Fire
engine", "Oh My Andros".
What made the performances
;ven more spectacular, was the
act that the band had just com-
,leted a hectic three-day sched-
ile which included a perfor-
-nance at the Kendal G L
[saacs National Gymnasium on


Friday, March 9 where they
played for the installation cere-
monies for 129 entrees into the
RBDF's Ranger Corps and also
provided music for the force's
annual march and church ser-
vice two days later.
This was followed by a ship
ride aboard the HMBS Nassau
from Prince George Wharf to
the dock at Morgan's Bluff,
Andros in four to six foot seas.
The ship left Prince George
Wharf at 4am on Monday.
"We were very, very excited
that we were able to get the
kind of response we got from
the crowd because one of our
goals, when we are developing
our routines and selecting the
type of music we will perform, is
for us to leave the crowd in awe
of those performances," Sub
Lieutenant Bowleg said.
"We wanted to blow them
away. We wanted to give them
routines they had never seen
before. We wanted them to be
able to really, really enjoy them-
selves and so we felt quite for-
tunate that we were able to
accomplish all of those objec-
tives because really, that's the
reason we perform, to please
the people.
"Hopefully the performances

will give them something to talk
about for a long time to come,"
he added.
Sub Lieutenant Bowleg, who
assumed command of the band
18 months ago and has been
credited with its turnaround,
said the unit decided "to get


more into the high performance
mode" because they wanted to
be able to interact more with
their audiences.
He said the band, which was
established in 1984 as a volun-
teer group during the tenure of
former commodore Leon


Smith, has the potential to win
local, regional and internation-
al acclaim for the Defence
Force.
Minister of Financial Services
Investments and MP for North
Andros and the Berry Islands,
Vincent Peet, who was on the
island to participate in the Com-
monwealth Day Celebrations,


applauded the band for its out-
standing performance. .-
"This fantastic Defence Fbrce
Marching Band was spectahu-
lar when they performed here
just the other day on this sane
track and once again they halve
displayed the type of talent-we
have in the Bahamas," Mr Peet
said.

Drug trafficking through Caribbean



is the focus of anti-drug summit

* DOMINICAN REPUBLIC
Santo Domingo
DAYS before presidents and
prime ministers began arriving
in the Dominican Republic for a
regional anti-drug summit,
authorities in the capital
stopped a pregnant woman and
her young son boarding a plane
for Madrid, according to Asso-
ciated Press.
She had three pounds of pure
cocaine taped under her shirt.
The example is one of many
instances of drugs moving from
the Caribbean to Europe a
plight plaguing Latin America
and a focus of Friday's confer-
ence between regional leaders
in the Dominican capital.
"Drugs have taken a real
back seat to the war on terror...
this summit is a very important
thing in that the nations in the
region appear to be not only
demanding a new leadership
but are stepping in to fill a vac-
uum," said Eduardo Gamarra,


director of the Latin American
and Caribbean Center at Flori-
da International University.
The drugs flow through South
America to the Caribbean.
From there, the contraband
moves via armadas of "fast
boats" to the United States and
to Europe, flown out on planes
from hidden airstrips or carried
by drug mules.
The smuggling shows no sign
of abating.
Illegal flights from Venezuela
to Hispaniola spiked in 2006,
suggesting a surge of cocaine
being sneaked over the island
shared by Haiti and the
Dominican Republic, the US
State Department reported this
month in its annual drug assess-
ment. Last year, a container
bound for Europe from South
America was detained in a
Dominican port carrying thou-
sands of pounds of cocaine.
Dominican and Haitian offi-
cials come to the conference
pledging co-operation in efforts


to fight both South American
shipments and smuggling across.
their porous 225-mile border,
and hoping for increased help'
from the United States in doing
so.
"This new effort comes
accompanied by an increase in.
action by the United States, as a
fundamental ally of Caribbean'
states in the fight against a prob-
lem that affects all nations,"
Dominican Foreign Minister
Carlos Morales Troncoso said.
US drug enforcement chief
Karen Tandy, who will send a
representative, visited with the
presidents of Haiti and the
Dominican Republic this month
to launch a joint anti-drug pro-
gram aimed at curtailing net-
works that use the island as a'
transshipment point.
Colombian President Alvaro'
Uribe, other Caribbean heads
of state and officials from';
Europe and Venezuela are'
expected to attend.


Carnival first quarter profit climbs, primarily on increased cruise capacity


* MIAMI
CARNIVAL, the world's
largest cruise group, reported a
13 per cent rise Friday in its
first-quarter profit on increased
cruise capacity and strong yields
from European brands that off-
set pricing weakness in the
Caribbean. The company also
reported a significant increase in
future Caribbean bookings,
according to Associated Press.
The Miami-based company
reported net income of $283
million, or 35 cents per share,
for the quarter ended February
28 versus $251 million, or 31
cents per share, a year earlier.
Revenue rose to $2.69 billion
from $2.46 billion.
Analysts polled by Thomson
Financial were looking for a
profit of 34 cents per share on
sales of $2.64 billion.
The revenue increase reflect-
ed a 7.4 per cent increase in
cruise capacity f rm four ships
being added to Carnival's 82-
ship fleet.
Net revenue yields for the
first quarter edged up 0.3 per
cent compared with the prior
year. Adjusting for currency
exchange rates, net revenue
yields as measured on a local
currency basis fell 2.1 per cent


when compared with the previ-
ous year. Yields are a key prof-
itability gauge that measure net
income earned from passengers
per day from cruise tickets and
onboard sales.

Hurricanes

Carnival Chairman and CEO
Micky Arison noted the first
quarter continued the trend of
strong performance in Europe.
Arison did indicate that at least
some of the trouble with
Caribbean bookings could be
attributed to the active 2004
and 2005 hurricane seasons.
Last year was slow for hurri-
canes.
The busy seasons "created a
negative snowball effect that
still hasn't reached bottom and
hopefully will soon," Arison
said on a conference call.
Looking ahead to the second
,quarter,;overall occupancy and
pricing was running slightly
behind last year, said Howard
Frank, Carnival's vice chairman
and chief operating officer.
By market, second quarter
occupancy was slightly down
among North American brands
from last year, and pricing in
the Caribbean and Mexico was


down year over year, Frank
said. Among European brands,
second quarter occupancy
appeared slightly down year
over year and pricing was slight-
ly up.
"With the exception of our
Caribbean trades, our other
trades are performing well,"
Frank said. "We do believe the
current Caribbean softness is
largely an economic issue."
Industry executives have said
the Caribbean's troubles can't
be blamed on fundamental
problems with the industry,
such as market saturation or
consumer boredom. Rather, it's
a cyclical problem based on
problems in the US economy,
specifically the housing market
and lending issues, that have cut
into consumer travel spending
and affected the middle market
demographic.
However-,.Carnival has seen
booking incre-ases in the
weeks, with more details to be
divulged Monday, Frank said.
Since the beginning of "wave
season" the January-to-March
booking season for summer
trips reservations were up 8.9
per cent and in line with fleet
capacity increases year over
year, Frank said.

MIAMI HERALD SPORTS


Jamal Wilson teams up with legendary coach


N By BRENT STUBBS .
Senior Sports Reporter
NOT since he coached
national record holder Craig
Hepburn in the long jump at
Auburn University has Ameri-
can Olympian Harvey Glance
has been excited about having
to work with another Bahamian
prospect.
Now the head coach at the
University of Alabama, Glance
is hoping that Temple Chris-
tian's senior high jumper Jamal
Wilson will shine as a Crimson
Tide when he join their athletic
team in August.
In town this weekend to take
a personal look at Wilson and
two other future prospects,
javelin thrower Livingstone
Brown and triple jumper Jamal
Delaney, Glance said he feels
like he is at home here having
done a number of coaching clin-
ics and also recruited a few ath-
letes, namely sprinter Debbie
Ferguson-McKenzie and
Tonique Williams-Darling,
before they settled for the Uni-
versity of Georgia.
As the head track and field
coach at the University of
Alabama for the past 10 years,
having coached 177 All-Amer-
icans, 13 national champions
and six Olympians, Glance said
Wilson fits the bill for an ath-
letic athlete, who has the poten-
tial to become an Olympian.
Glance, who ran on the
American 1976, 1980 and 1984
Olympic teams, was 16-time
All-American and held the 100
metres indoor and outdoor
world records, said his personal
coach, Ronald Cartwright, has
spoken highly of him and he is
eager to give him the opportu-
pity to prove himself.
"Right now, we are just going
to follow him and be of any
kind of inspiration for him,"
said Glance, who along with
assistant coach Rod Tiffin are in
town.
"We are going to support him
as he ventures through this sum-
mer competing and we'll sit
back and wait for any positive
results that he and coach put
together and try to be an exten-
sion to what he builds on from
this point as he heads towards
Alabama."


Back at Auburn University
in the 1990s, Glance said he had
the pleasure of coaching Hep-
burn, who became a conference
champion and All-American in
the long jump.
"That was our number one
guy when we came down and
made contact here back in the
day," Glance reflected. "Hope-
fully, if Jamal can have any
potential as Craig when I
coached him at Auburn, he can
look forward to a bright future."

Thrilled

Wilson, the reigning BAISS,
national high school and Carif-
ta champion in the high jump,
said he's thrilled to be able to be
associated with the legendary
Glance.
"Before I didn't know who
Harvey Glance was, but I read
about him and I realized the
achievements that he made and
that astonished me," Wilson
stated. "So I'm really excited
about going to the school to be
coached by this man, the great
Harvey Glance."
Wilson, who has already
soared over seven feet in the
high jump, said he know that
there's still a lot of room for
improvement. But he admitted
that he's always willing to learn.
"It's still early in the season
and I haven't really put every-
thing together yet, so you
haven't seen the best in me
yet," he said. "By the end of the
season, you should see me make
my coach Cartwright and
Alabama more pleased with my
performance."
Cartwright, whose son Sidney
Cartwright is an assistant female
coach at Alabama where throw-
er Aymara Albury is in her
senior year, said when Tiffin con-
tacted him, he and Wilson went
for a visit, fell in love with what
they saw and the rest was history.
He signed right away to
become a Crimson Tide.
"One of the things that
always interested me was the
Olympics that I saw him
(Glance) ran in the 200, he beat
my fellow. He was the champi-
on," Cartwright noted. "But
Glance was always be Glance.
"So I'm really happy to have

recruited Jamal. That makes me
a lot happier because my son is
there as well, so I know he will
look out for him."
Livingstone Brown, who is
working next year for a schol-


a rship to Alabama, thanked
Lance and Tiffin for coming
d own and giving him the oppor-
tunity to possibly join Wilson.
"It's a great thing for one of
iry team-mates to go to a very
prestigious college," Brown


said. "I just want to wish him
good luck and let him know to
hold a seat for me."
And Jamal Delaney said he 'i
currently working on improving

that he too can join his former

Senior Sports Reporter
FOR the second time in four
months, the Bahamas Olympic
Association's election'of offi-
cers has been left hanging in the
balance.
The BOA's annual general
meeting, which was resumed
Thursday night after being post-
poned in November, was halted
when a heated argument
ensued about who was eligible
to vote in the elections.
In its closed door session
at the Nassau Yacht Club, all
of the outgoing executives
and representatives from 12
of the 13 affiliated associa-
tions and federations were
present.
But after hearing the finan-
cial report by treasurer Vincent
Wallace-Whitfield, which was
not accepted at the originally
AGM in November, president
Sir Arlington Butler, the chair-
man of the meeting, declared
all of the executive positions
vacated.
And he proclaimed that in
accordance with the Interna-
tional Olympic Committee's
Olympic Charter, only the rep-
resentatives of the associations


and federations were eligible to
vote.
That resulted in an uproar as
almost all of those present, who
had seemingly decided on which
direction they were going to
vote, stated their position.
A suggestion was made by
first vice-president Durward
'Sea Wolf' Knowles that the
meeting be halted and they con-


tinue on Thursday so that
calmer heads could prevail.
Sir Arlington said the consti-
tution called for the "former
members" to run, if nominat-
ed, to be members of the exec-
utive again.
"But the former members of
the executives did not accept
that," Butler said. "That's about
what happened, so we were


forced to postponed the elec-
tiortis again."
1-arcourt 'Rip' Rolle, one of
the BOA's vice-presidents and
officer manager at the BOA's
headquarters, said they are hop-
ing that by the time as Thurs-
day, they would have resolved
the issue.
Rolle said he was just read-
ing a point from the IOC,
which states that "in any case
it should be made clear that
the voting majority of your
general assembly and or your
exec utive body shall consist of
the votes casted by your
Olympic associations or their
representatives, in accordance
to rules 29.3 of the Olympic
Charter.
"T his does not mean that the
voting rights should be restrict-
ed to the Olympic sports fed-
erat ions only. However, it
means that the latter must have
the v voting majority at the mini-
mum.
On that vote, Rolle said the
executives were willing to pro-
ceed with the elections on the
view that the majority of the
federation representatives cast
their votes, but their execu-
tives should also be entitled to
vote.


E SIR Arlington Butler


Those member associations and federations with their rep-
resentatives present were as follows:
Athletics Mike Sands and Curt Hollingsworth.
Baseball Jim Wood and Oria Knowles.
Basketball Larry Wilson and Edgar Pickstock.
Boxing George Turner.
Cycling Roy Colebrooke and Barron Musgrove.
Football Anton Sealy and Sam Haven.
Softball Rommel Knowles and Burkett Dorsett.
Swimming Arlington Cargill and Al Dillette.
Tennis Georgia Baldacci and Edith Powell.
Volleyball Don Cornish and Joe Smith.
Wrestling George Brennen.
Yachting Peter Wassitsch.
Executive members present were: Arlington Butler, Dur-
ward Knowles, Enoch Backford, Roscoe Davies, Leonard
Archer, Wellington Miller, Harcourt Rolle, Larry Davis, Liv-
ingstone Bostwick, Vincent Wallace-Whitfield and Diane Miller.
All of the above are expected to be back at the Nassau Yacht
Club on Thursday to decide on who will vote and eventually vote
to determine who will run the affairs of the BOA for the next
four years.

Sports heroes Mych.al Thompson and




Ed Armbrister make Wall Of Fame


* By DENEZ JONES

If there were two Bahamians
that are long overdue for recog-
nition nationally for their ath-
letic accomplishments, they are
Two-Time NBA Champion
(1987 & 88) Mychal 'Sweetbells'
Thompson and Major League
Baseball World Series (1975)
Champion Edison 'Ed' Rosan-
da Armbrister.
Poster-sized photos of the
two old-school Bahamian stand-
outs will now be placed on the
Wall of Fame at the interna-
tional arrival section of the Lyn-
den Pindling International Air-
port.
"I think it's a great honour,


and it's always a privilege for
me to represent the Bahamas,"
said Thompson during an inter-
view yesterday.
Continuing his comments on
being inducted to the Wall of
Fame Thompson said, "When
I played, I wasn't just playing
for myself. 1 was playing to rep-
resent my family and my coun-
try. So, to be recognized like
this and to be put on the Wall in
the company of all those great
and historic figures in the
Bahamas is the highest honor 1
could receive."
However, attempts to contact
Armbrister for comment were
unsuccessful up to press time.
Armbrister was just the


fourth Bahamian to play Major
League Baseball, and was first
signed as an amateur free-agcnlt
by the Houston Astros in 1967.
He was later traded to the ('in-
ncinnati Reds in 1971. but did
not make his pro-debut until
1973. Not known for his batting
power, Armbrister was consid-
ered a solid reserve outfielder,
and played for four years with
the likes of Ken Griffcy Sr, and
MLB Hall of Famers Pete Rose
(3rd base) and catcher Johnny
Bench, along with 1975 MLB3
All-Stars Joe Morgan (second
base), Dave Concepcion (thiiid
base), and Tony Perei (lirst
base).
The year before Armbrister

lihe Lakers also had anticipated
lacing the Boston Celtics in the
Finals, so 'I hompson's assign-
ment was to limited the offence
of Hall of Fame power-forward
Kevin McHale, which he did
with great effectiveness.
Thompson is probably the main
reason so many Bahamians are
Los Angeles Lakers fans today.
Armbrister's greatest pro-
baseball moment had to have
been in game three of the 1975
World Series, which featured
.six home runs, three by each
team. The Reds prevailed 6-5 in
the 10th inning of that contest.
The game was marred though,
by a controversial play involving
Armbrister and Boston's Hall


of Fame catcher Carlton Fisk.
Armbrister laid down a sacri-
fice bunt in the 10th inning, and
seemingly hesitated in break-
ing out of the batter's box.
Fisk's subsequent throwing
error led to the Reds winning
run.
The. Sox screamed for an
interference call from umpire
Barney Barnett, but to no avail.
Armbrister and the Reds won
the 1975 World Series four
games to.three, and although
not being a part of the starting
line-up, Armbrister got some
playing time, and his World
Series statistics included a 1-for-
4 performance at the plate, with
two RBIs.


School plans basketball jaunboree on Great Inagua


* By DENEZ JONES

FOR an island like Great
Inagua, which only has one set-
tlement, Matthew Town, the
upcoming Inagua All Age
School Basketball Jamboree is a
greatly anticipated event by the
residents in the country's most
south-eastern district.
S "Yes mah! people are
eagerly awaiting that's why
we're making so much prepa-
rations," said first year head-
master Jason Woodside.
"We've already sent out notices
to the banks and other places,
to make them aware of what's
going on, and some of the stu-
dents are really practising hard.
So, we are all really looking for-
ward to the event this year."
According to Mr Woodside,
their school didn't compete in
the annual Hugh Campbell
High School Basketball tour-
nament this year, and haven't
done so in quite a while. So,
the March 29 event will give
those players a stage to per-
form. In addition, local resi-
dents see the event as a means
of earning a few extra dollars,


and stalls tor vendors have
alicady been set up. The school
has been renovating its coltI
and has added a few more
bleachers.
"People have already been
calling in, inquiring about the
tents that we have set up. Peo-
ple are really excited about it,
especially those who participate
ed last year, because it gives
Inagua a little bit of exposure
and it helps to raise camaraderie
among the different schools -
especially on the Out Islands.
Hopefully if the Nassau teams
come down it will help to show
a little bit of what Ingaua All
Age School is all about," Wood-
side said.
According to event director
Tara Burrows-Lindo nine
teams have already conniimed
their participation, which are
three teams more than when
the tournament was first held
last year. The line-up is the
same six teams from the
MICAL constituency, with three
coming from New Providence
(NP).
Lindo said that more NP
teams have expressed an inter-


est in playing in the jamboree.
but nothing has been finalized.
"We got a call from Renais-
sance Academy they said that
they wree interested in coming
down. St John's said thev were
interested in coming too, but


we haven't heard back from
them yet "' Lindo infotimed.
The MICAL region o the
Bahamas is loaded with kids
that have exceptional si'e aind
athiet ic talent I ak. I L'exam
ple, lormci C.lcigliton Univei-


sit'y centre Livan Pyfrom and

ductive college careers. Old-


school post player Halcourt
Moultrie also hails from Great
Inagua, and still has family that
live there. To say the least,
there's a wealth of talent in the
country's southern district, that
for too long has gone unnoticed.

COLLEGE BASKETBALL I NCAA TOURNAMENT


Winthrop knocks off Notre Dame


CHRIS GRAYTHEN/GETTY IMAGES
DREAM PROSPECT: JaMarcus Russell.

Russell almost

looks too good

to be for real
BY GARY PETERSON
McClatchy-Tribune News Service
They didn't show much of
JaMarcus Russell's personal
workout on the evening news
Wednesday. But they showed enough.
The first clip showed Russell drop-
ping back, stopping, flicking his wrist
and sending the football sailing across
time and space as if propelled by an
anti-matter warp drive. It was evoca-
tive of an NFL Films shot dreamy
slow motion, a moment in time
extended, a football spiraling into the
endless mists of eter-
O nity, having slipped
the bonds of earth.
Except that in Rus-
sell's case, it was
actual speed. Seri-
ously. The ball just
kept sailing and spinning until, finally,
dive-bombing into the outstretched
hands of a receiver.
The next clip showed the hulking
Russell rolling right and flipping
another pebbled brown laser into the
next dimension. Then Russell was
shown running the 40-yard dash,
crossing the finish line a few feet from
where Oakland Raiders coach Lane
Kiffin was standing, and...
Well, what more do you need?
HE'S RIGHT FOR THE RAIDERS
By all accounts, when Russell was
finished working out, the dozens of
scouts and coaches on hand at Louisi-
ana State needed hydraulic lifts to get
their jaws off the ground. Asked how
he would grade his effort, Russell
said: "I'd give myself an A."
More like a 3 followed by about
seven zeroes.
The more you learn about Russell,
the more you are convinced that he is
precisely what the Raiders need and
would want. The available evidence
suggests he can make all the throws.
He is just this side of larger than life.
He played well in at least one big
game in college. And he will be there
when it's time for the Raiders to
spend the first pick in the NFL Draft.
The Raiders need a quarterback
after passing ontwo pretty good ones
in last year's draft-and struggling with
two mediocre QBs last season. It sim-
ply makes too much sense.
Which, granted, is the point at
which veteran Raiders observers say
this: "So why won't it happen?"
IT'S ALL UP TO AL DAVIS
Well, here's one way it wouldn't:
Raiders owner Al Davis might decide
he simply can't pass up freakishly-
gifted wide receiver Calvin Johnson
6 feet 4,239 pounds, with 4.35
speed in the 40. In a recent workout at
Georgia Tech, Johnson broad-jumped
11 feet 7 and had a 42-inch vertical
leap. Those are the kind of Captain
Marvel gifts Davis likes. Taking John-
son over Russell and Notre Dame
quarterback Brady Quinn would be
the kind of conventional-wisdom-
tweaking move Davis loves.
Here's another way it wouldn't:
Davis may decide he likes Quinn
more than Russell. But this doesn't
pass the plausibility test. Davis has
doped enough drafts to know you
only believe half the good things you
hear about a Notre Dame product.
It's an interesting time of year in
the NFL. The season is over. The
scouting combine has been held. Per-
sonal workouts are being conducted
all over the country. What's going on,
however, is mostly a lot of chatter.
And still, the stock of some players
rises, and the estimation of other play-
ers falls. Yet Russell seems
entrenched as the draft's biggest
prize. If anything, the talking points
only validate that status. And the
Raiders remain the NFL's worst team.
That sounds like a match made in
NFL Films heaven dreamy, eternal,
a place where it is not required of
everything that goes up that it then
comes crashing back to earth.
And that's not just a bunch of wild
speculation. Or maybe it is.
You be the judge.

ORLANDO, Fla. Imagine
how Rocco Mediate felt the first
time he met Arnold Palmer on a
golf course. He was 19 when
friends secretly arranged a golf
game in Latrobe, Pa., and the kid
was so overcome by seeing Palmer
that he nearly turned and ran.
Imagine how Mediate would
feel 25 years later to see Palmer
waiting for him Sunday afternoon
on the 18th hole at Bay Hill.
"It would be pretty interesting
to see if I could even talk," said
Mediate, a guy who talks a lot.
Mediate chatted away through
wind and rain Friday, making
birdie on two of the toughest holes
during a 5-under round of 65 that


gave him a three-shot lead at the
Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Tiger Woods, meanwhile, was
lucky to still be in the mix.
Tied for the lead after a 64 in
the first round, Woods hooked one
tee shot into the water and hit
plenty of others into the rough. He
closed with four tough pars for a
73, leaving him six shots behind.
Asked for any positives after a
bad day, Woods said, "I broke 80."
"It was pathetic," he said. "I
struggled all day. At least I'm still
in contention."
Mediate was at 9-under 131. Paul

Wizards: Forward Caron Butler will


miss a week to 10 days with a left knee injury

start in Butler's place, coach Eddie Jordan
said after practice Friday.

against the Houston Rockets.

Friday night's game against the Los Angeles
Clippers with a sore right knee.

Crosby propels Penguins


From Miami Herald Wire Services
PITTSBURGH Sidney Crosby and
Erik Christensen score two goals apiece,
and the Pittsburgh Penguins beat the
Montreal Canadiens 6-3 on Friday night
to move back into fourth place in the
Eastern Conference.
Gary Roberts and Michel Ouellet also
scored, and Evgeni Malkin and Mark Rec-
chi had two assists apiece for the Pen-
guins, who are 6-0-1 in their past seven
and pulled within four points of Atlantic
Division-leading New Jersey.
Chris Higgins, Sheldon Souray and
Andrei Markov scored for Montreal,
which remained in 11th place in the East.
Michael Ryder had two assists.
Crosby's goal 4:28 into the game was
the latest of his highlight-reel tallies this
season. Crosby took the puck in the neu-
tral zone, stickhandled his way through
three Montreal players and flicked a wrist
shot while falling to his left to elude a
fourth. The puck got past Montreal goalie
David Aebischer for Crosby's 30th goal of
the season.
Christensen made it 2-0 in the final
minute of the opening period when he got
his 15th of the season by converting a poor
clearing attempt by Aebischer.

CAPITALS 5, MAPLE LEAFS 1
WASHINGTON Alexander Semin
had a goal and two assists, and Alexandre
Giroux scored his first NHL goal to help
the Capitals snap a nine-game losing
streak.
The Capitals, winless since beating
New Jersey on Feb. 24, snapped their lon-
gest losing streak overall in 25 years. The
victory also snapped Washington's seven-
game home losing streak.
Olie Kolzig made 34 saves and Boyd
Gordon, Kris Beech and Tomas Fleisch-
mann also scored once. Washington,
weakened by late-season trades and a
flurry of injuries, had lost 14 of 15 (1-9-5)
coming into the game.
Nik Antropov scored for Toronto.

THRASHERS 2, RANGERS 1 (OT)
ATLANTA Alexei Zhitnik scored
the game-winner with a slap shot on the
power play at 2:18 of overtime, giving the
Thrashers their sixth consecutive home
victory.
The Thrashers have 86 points to
strengthen their hold on third place in the


KEITH SRAKOCIC/AP
WAY TO GO, KID: Gary Roberts, left, celebrates with teenage phenom Sidney
Crosby after Crosby scored in the first period of Friday night's 6-3 victory
over the Canadiens. Crosby added an empty-net goal, his 31st of the season.


Eastern Conference. Atlanta, which has a
four-point lead over Tampa Bay in the
Southeast Division, took just 20 shots in
regulation, but backup goaltender Johan
Hedberg stopped 38 of the 39 shots he
faced, including one in overtime.
Matt Cullen's holding penalty gave
Atlanta the man advantage 1:31 into the
extra period.

SABRES 3, LIGHTNING 2
TAMPA, Fla. Jason Pominville had
two goals and Ryan Miller made 35 saves,
helping the Eastern Conference-leading
Sabres past the Lightning.
The Sabres also got a goal from Derek
Roy. Buffalo has won consecutive games
after a four-game losing streak to extend
its lead over New Jersey for the confer-
ence's best record to four points.
Tampa Bay's Vincent Lecavalier
scored twice, giving him an NHL-leading
48 goals. He set a team record with 96
points this season.
The Lightning played at home for the
first time since going 3-3 on a road trip.


Tampa Bay trails Southeast Division-
leading Atlanta by four points.

ELSEWHERE
Stars: Left wing Brenden Morrow
was activated from the injured reserve
list, nearly four months after he severed
tendons in his right wrist during a game
against Chicago.

LATE THURSDAY
Wild 2, Oilers 1: Marian Gaborik
scored an insurance goal 7:22 into the
third period and visiting Minnesota sent
Edmonton to its ninth consecutive loss.
Canucks 3, Blues 2 (OT): Daniel
Sedin scored a power-play goal 1:09 into
overtime to lift host Vancouver.
Sharks 5, Coyotes 1: Joe Thornton
had a goal and three assists for visiting
San Jose.
Blackhawks 4, Kings 3 (SO):
Tuomo Ruutu scored the tying goal in the
third period and Nikita Alexeev netted
the deciding goal in the seventh round of
the shootout for visiting Chicago.

KANSAS' SHERRON


When they weren't run-
ning for points, the Jayhawks
were sinking shots from long
range with ease in winning
their 12th straight game. They
were 13-of-22 on 3-pointers,
and Niagara made only
2-of-19.
"We didn't want to lose
again in the first round," Kan-
sas guard Sherron Collins
said. "So Coach explained it
to us, how important the
) game was to us and to the uni-
versity and to everybody who
loves Kansas basketball. It
was good to get this win and
*""a get everything off our shoul-
ders."
When Chalmers hit two
3-pointers and Russell Robin-
son added another to open the
second half, the Jayhawks had
a 61-33 lead. Then it was
pretty much showtime.
The lead went to 81-40
with 10 minutes remaining
after another steal and fast-
break basket by Chalmers. A
dunk by reserve Brady Mor-
ningstar with 3:44 left gave
the Jayhawks 101 points.
Niagara (23-12), which beat
Florida A&M 77-69 in Tues-
day's play-in game at Dayton,
Ohio, lost after a 12-game win-
Sning streak.
"We could have just lost to
the national champions, I
truly believe it," Niagara
coach Joe Mihalich said.
"We didn't play North Car-
olina. We didn't play UCLA.
But if they're better than this
team, I've got to see it."
Virginia Tech 54, Illi-
nois 52: The Hokies waited 11
years and most of their
first-round game against Illi-
nois to win another NCAA
Tournament game.
After trailing by as many as
13, the fifth-seeded Hokies

left, but didn't score in the last
4:28 as the Hokies had the last
12 points. It's the Hokies'
eighth NCAA trip, but it's
their first since 1996.
After trailing 52-42, the
Hokies (24-11) pulled to 52-50
with Washington hitting a
three-pointer, Coleman Col-
lins making two free throws
and Washington shooting
another three from the right
corner with 2:25 left.
While the Fighting Illini
continued to have problems
at the offensive end of the
floor, the Hokies suddenly


had all the answers.
After Jamon Gordon's free
throw and a miss by Illinois,
the Hokies trailed 52-51 with
less than a minute left. They
moved the ball around the
perimeter before Washington
drove the lane and attempted
a 14-footer that bounded off
the backboard and fell in with
45.5 seconds left.
A.D. Vassallo added a free
throw after two more Illinois
misses, giving the Illini one
last shot.
They passed around the
ball before settling for Brian


Randle's jumper from the left
corner with seven seconds
left. The ball caromed back
toward him and he got the
rebound, but was fouled by a
diving Washington with 4.9
seconds left.
Randle, a junior who is
shooting 57.7 percent at the
free-throw line for his college
career, then missed the front
end of the bonus situation.
The ball rolled loose in a
scrum, and Randle picked it
up and tried to get off a shot
while a defender also had his
hands on the ball.

From Miami Herald Wire Services
Marcelus Kemp saved
Nevada from another early
exit in the NCAA Tourna-
ment.
With Wolf Pack star Nick
Fazekas off his game, Kemp
capped a 27-point perfor-
mance with nine points in
overtime to lift seventh-
seeded Nevada to a 77-71 vic-
tory over 10th-seeded Creigh-
ton in the South Regional on
Friday in New Orleans.
Nevada (29-4), bounced by
Montana in last year's first
round, got a big game from
Kemp to move into a second-
round matchup against sec-
ond-seeded Memphis (31-3) on
Sunday.
Fazekas, the Western Ath-
letic Conference's player of
the year, had his second-worst
shooting performance of the
season and fouled out with
3:06 left in overtime. The
senior still finished with 17
points, but was 5 of 13 from the
field.
Ramon Sessions scored 16
points for the Wolf Pack.
Nate Funk led Creighton
with 23 points. Nick Porter
and Anthony Tolliver each
added 15 for the Blue Jays
(22-11).
Creighton also struggled
from long range, going 3 of 19
on three-point attempts. Dane
Watts, who came in averaging
10.1 points per game, was 0 of 8
from long range.
Memphis 73, North
Texas 58: With the shooting
of Chris Douglas-Roberts and
the inside presence of Joey
Dorsey and Robert Dozier, the
second-seeded Tigers made it
23 consecutive wins by beat-
ing 15th-seeded North Texas
in New Orleans.
Douglas-Roberts had 16
points, Dozier had 11 points
and seven rebounds, and Dor-
sey had nine points and 15
rebounds. Andre Allen added

COMPLETE FOCUS: Marcelus Kemp shoots under pressure
during the first half of Nevada's 77-71 overtime victory.


14 points as Memphis over-
came a slow start to grab con-
trol late in the first half and
hardly let up against its Sun
Belt foe.
The Tigers (31-3) are a dif-
ferent club from last year's


squad that made the regional
finals, but they expect to get at
least that far.
They haven't lost since
Dec. 20 and are seeded second
in the South Regional.
The knock is that North


Texas (23-11) is the caliber of
team Memphis usually beats.
The Tigers beat only three
teams that made the NCAA
Tournament, none seeded
higher than eighth.
Tennessee 121, Long
Beach State 86: With Chris
Lofton leading the way with 25
points, the fifth-seeded Volun-
teers (23-10) set off some
offensive fireworks to beat the
12th-seeded 49ers (24-8) in
Columbus, Ohio.
The point total matched the
most in a first-round game, set
by UNLV in 1977 against San
Francisco.
Both teams came in averag-
ing 80 points putting them
among the top 11 in the nation
- so it wasn't a shocker that
baskets came in bunches.
It was the most points
scored in the tournament by
Tennessee and its most in 18
seasons in any game. The Vol-
unteers topped 100 on a dunk
by Duke Crews with more
than 6'/2 minutes left. They'll
face Virginia in the second
round of the South Regional
on Sunday.
Virginia 84, Albany
57: J.R. Reynolds scored 28
points to lead the fourth-
seeded Cavaliers (21-10) past
13th-'seeded Albany (23-10) in
Columbus, Ohio.
, Reynolds (17.8 points per
game) and point guard Sean
Singletary (18.9 per game)
form one of the nation's most
prolific backcourts. Lately,
things haven't been so smooth.
A sore hip knocked Reynolds
out of his shooting rhythm as
the season wound down, and
threw the Cavaliers for a loop,
too.
In his past three games,
Reynolds went 3 of 15, 3 of 14
and 3 of 15 from the field. No
coincidence that Virginia lost
two of the three, leaving the
Cavaliers unsure what to
expect in the tournament.

Wisconsin survives a scare


From Miami Herald Wire Services
Wisconsin seemed in a
daze, almost like jittery rook-
ies playing in their first NCAA
Tournament.
Texas A&M-Corpus
Christi, the newcomer to col-
lege basketball's biggest event,
looked like the veterans at
least at the start.
Flustered for most of the
first half, Wisconsin overcame
an 18-point deficit to beat the
15th-seeded Islanders 76-63 on
Friday in the first round of the
Midwest Regional in Chicago.
"We don't fall apart when
things aren't going our way,"
Kammron Taylor said after
scoring all 24 of his points in
the second half.
Second-seeded Wisconsin
(30-5), making its ninth
straight NCAA tournament
appearance, advanced to Sun-
day's second round at the
United Center against UNLV,
which earlier beat Georgia
Tech 67-63.
The Islanders (26-7) scored
the game's first 10 points and
later led 25-7 against the
stunned Badgers.
"We didn't finish it. You
can't let up against a team like
that when you get them
down," Islanders coach Ron-
nie Arrow said.
Badgers star Alando Tucker
also shook off a slow start to
finish with 23 points.
Seven-foot center Chris
Daniels led A&M-Corpus
Christi with 20 points.
Oregon 58, Miami
(Ohio) 56: Aaron Brooks
scored 18 points, and the third-
seeded Ducks (27-7) held off
the 14th-seeded RedHawks in
Spokane, Wash.
Miami (18-15) had a chance
to tie it late, but Michael Bra-
mos' fallaway three-point
attempt bounced off the rim.
The Ducks have now won
seven in a row after rediscov-
ering a defense that helped
them to a 13-0 start.

including a basket from his
knees, to help the Boilermak-
ers (22-11) beat the Wildcats
(20-11) in New Orleans.
Chris Lutz hit his first four
three-point attempts and
scored 16 points, and David
Teague added 15 points for
Purdue. The Boilermakers
trailed only once, by a point.
UNLV 67, Georgia
Tech 63: The Runnin' Rebels
won an NCAA Tournament


game for the first time in 16
years, beating the Yellow Jack-
ets (20-12) behind 19 points
each from Michael Umeh and
Wendell White in Chicago.
The last time the seventh-
seeded Runnin' Rebels won in
the NCAA Tournament was
under Jerry Tarkanian, who
led them to the 1991 Final Four.
Now under coach Lon Kruger,
UNLV (29-6) has an eight-
game victory streak.

EAST REGIONAL



Durant wills Texas to victory j


From Miami Herald Wire Services
SPOKANE, Wash. Kevin
Durant's first NCAA Tourna-
ment game went just as his
first collegiate regular season
beyond his years.
Durant, 18, a candidate for
national player of the year, had
27 points and eight rebounds
to lead fourth-seeded Texas to
a 79-67 victory over hard-
charging New Mexico State on
Friday night in the first round
of the East Regional.
Durant's long-armed tip-
Sins, smooth pivot moves, sud-
den pull-up jumpers and
blocked shots had NBA scouts
chuckling courtside. Then he
went the first 12 minutes of the
second half without a field
goal but made 11 of 12 free
throws in the second half and
15 of 16 overall.
He connected on two from
the free-throw line after a
rebound with 1:10 left that put
Texas ahead 75-66 and essen-
tially ended the game.
Classmate D.J. Augustin
had 19 points and seven
assists, and sophomore A.J.
Abrams added 16 points for


the Long-
horns (25-9),
who start four
freshmen and
have seven on
their 12-man
roster.
Elijah
Ingram had 16
points for DURANT
13th-seeded
New Mexico State (25-9),
which was making its first
NCAA Tournament appear-
ance since 1999 but still has
not advanced past the first
round since '93.
The Aggies rallied from 12
down with 16 minutes remain-
ing to take a 58-57 lead with
7:10 left on two free throws by
Jonathan Gibson, who had just
airballed a wide-open three-
point attempt.
But then Durant, who
entered Friday's competition
as the only player in college
basketball to rank in the top 10
in scoring (25.6 points per
game) and rebounding (11.3
per game), got into a team
huddle on the floor, clapped
twice and said, "Let's gol"


The Longhorns responded
with a 12-4 run that featured
Durant making six consecu-
tive free throws and stealing a
pass near midcourt.
The game marked the
return to the national stage of
former NBA guard Reggie
Theus, who in his first two
years in Las Cruces, N.M.,
transformed the Aggies from a
6-24 disaster behind six trans-
fers. The well-dressed Theus,
a former broadcaster and
actor whom his players jok-
ingly call "Hollywood," lost
some of the sideline glamour
behind his all-black suit, tie
and shirt ensemble four min-
utes into the second half.
He received a key technical
foul, after a second offensive
foul call against his team in
two possessions. During the
ensuing timeout, Theus con-
tinually asked a referee, "Why
don't we just stop playing?"
When the official asked the
former Chicago Bulls All-Star
to quiet his complaining,
Theus kept talking.
Aggies leading scorer Justin
Hawkins was held to 11 points.
