Mama Pray for Me
It was a quiet Saturday evening, we were sailing for
hours. I reflected back to when I purchased a dress
for my mother for Mother's Day. It was very pretty. I
hope so much to see her in it.

Our boat was attack by Cuban Mig Jet Fighters, we
cried and screamed for help, my mind ran on my
mother. The thing that came to me was Mama pray
for me, God must have heard her prayer. I told the
guys let's pray, even though we lost four(4) or our
comrades our lives were spared.

The Mother am speaking of is Mrs. Rhonda ,
Farrington of Alice Town, Eleuthera. Both her arid
my father the late Mr. Cladwell Farrington told us to
pray and trust God. Could you imagine the news
that Sunday, Mother's Day, it was three of us from
Alice Town, Maynard Miller, Dencil Clarke and

I will like to take this time to let my friends and co-
workers who are mothers, know that on this
mothers day they are not alone, and that they have
great sons who will always care about them.

Mother's love and respect your children, keep telling
them of the goodness of God. Children, take care
of your Mothers/Parents.

Cuba accuses

US of violating



treaties with

Posada's release
CUBA accused the U.S. gov-
ernment on Friday of violating
international anti-terrorism treaties
by allowing Luis Posada Carriles, a
man Havana accuses of violent acts
against the country, to walk free of
all charges after an immigration
indictment against him was
dropped, according to Associated
"The U.S. government has not
only violated its own laws and sup-
posed commitment to its self-pro-
claimed 'War Against Terrorism,'
but also to its own international
obligations," said a government
declaration published Friday in the
Communist Party newspaper Gran-
The declaration detailed several
international treaties it said the
United States had violated, but did
not say whether it would take any
diplomatic action.
The 79-year-old Posada was
freed of all charges on Tuesday
when a U.S. district judge threw
out an immigration indictment
against him, accusing the U.S. gov-
ernment of "fraud, deceit and trick-
ery" while trying to buy time for a
separate criminal investigation.
Detained on immigration
charges in March 2005, the Cuban-
born Posada had been awaiting tri-
al in Texas on charges of lying to
U.S. immigration officials. He was
freed on bond last month pending
his court appearance, but until
Tuesday was still under house arrest
and had been required to wear an
electronic monitoring device.
"We'll have to see now what the
White House does," the Cuban
declaration said. "It still has the
option to fulfill its international
obligations to detain Luis Posada
Carriles and extradite him to the
Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela."
Havana accuses Posada of
orchestrating a string of 1997
Havana hotel bombings, which
killed an Italian tourist, and in the
1976 bombing of a Cuban airliner
)- that killed 73 people.
Venezuela is seeking to extra-
dite Posada in the jetliner explo-
sion, but a U.S. federal judge ruled
that Posada cannot be sent there
or to Cuba for fear he may be tor-
Accusing the U.S. government
of hypocrisy, the Cuban declara-
tion noted that "meanwhile, it
maintains a prison in part of the
territory it occupies in Cuba in
Guantanamo and maintains pris-
ons in the length and breadth of
the planet
where the most aberrant
and inhumane acts are committed."

Residents claim power cuts

are making life a 'misery'

suburb claim their lives
are being "made a
misery" by constant power
For three months, electrici-
ty outages at Seabreeze

Estates have left residents in
despair, it was claimed yes-
The hardest-hit area is Sea-
grape Avenue, where resi-
dents in a whole block suffer
power failures day and night,

sometimes for two hours at a
"It makes life very diffi-
cult," said Mr Kirtland
Bethel. He said that he and
his wife frequently have to
sit in the dark during the

evenings after getting home
from work.
"We get these power cuts
sometimes two or three times
a day, and even during the
night. Our neighbour just had
an electric pump burn up
because of this."

To make matters worse,
BEC fails to return calls when
the families complain, he said.
Most of, he time, they have to
contend with an answerphone
Mr Bethel said: "We have
left names and numbers so
they can talk to us, but we
have not received a call from
them yet. We just can't do
anything. We just sit in the
dark until it comes back on."
Mr Bethel said he had been
living at Seabreeze for 17

years, but electricity problems
had only become acute in
recent months. He believes a
faulty transformer at the end
of the road could be to blame.
"The.last three months
have been really terrible.

larly and I call them, too.

FINAL submissions have now been made in
the appeal against the murder conviction and
sentencing of Maxo Tido.
The case was adjourned yesterday, pending a
ruling by the Court of Appeal.
Tido was the first convict to be sentenced after
a landmark ruling by the Privy Council in 2006,
which held that the mandatory death penalty in
the Bahamas was unconstitutional.
In March, 2006, Tido was found guilty by unan-
imous decision of the murder of 16-year-old
Donnell Conover, who reportedly died as a result
of a crushed skull and lacerations to the brain.
Her partially-clothed body was found report-
edly with burns on it in a quarry pit off Cowpen
Road. Tido was sentenced in April, 2006 by Jus-
tice Anita Allen.

Sowing the substance of life

LIVING WHERE we do, it can be hard to
tell how ordinary our Sun is, shining dimly in
our ordinary galaxy. Then comes something
to remind us. This time it is a colossal super-
nova, called SN 2006gy, the brightest ever
A supernova is an exploding star. This
one, first observed last September, lies about
240 million light-years from us in the con-
stellation Perseus. The explosion was per-
haps 100 times more powerful than an ordi-
nary supernova, and the star that exploded
may have been 150 times the Sun's mass,
"freakishly massive," as one astronomer put
it. A photograph of SN 2006gy shows that it
vastly outshines the entire galaxy in which it
is located. This takes some imagining.
But so does the nature of the explosion
itself, which puzzled observers at first. The
usual explanations could not account for a
supernova on this scale, nor was this the pre-
dictable demise of such a massive star.
Instead, this anomalous explosion seems to
offer a glimpse into one of the essential con-

editions for the universe we observe the
dispersal of heavy elements like carbon and
iron. What we are witnessing in SN 2006gy
may be the making of the very atomic stuff
out of which we ourselves are made. We are
used to the notion that looking at the stars
means looking back in time. Looking at SN
2006gy may mean looking at one of the fun-
damental processes in a much earlier uni-
Astronomers point to an analogous star in
our own galaxy, Eta Carinae, about 7,500
light-years away. It is similar in size, and sim-
ilar in instability, to the star that turned,
dying, into SN 2006gy. There is a possibility
that Eta Carinae may itself die a similar,
extraordinary death. It is perhaps unwise to
hope for grand celestial events in one's life-
time. Stunning discoveries from the past
should be enough. But it is tempting to won-
der what such a nearby supernova, on such a
scale, would be like, how it would be to live
under such an altered sky.

WHEN DRUG and alcohol abusers end
up in jail, the costs to society go well beyond
the high price tag of incarceration itself.
Prison time can unravel an offender's entire'
family while rendering him or her all but
unemployable upon release. So initiatives
that pull addicts back from the brink repre-
sent money well spent.
Drug courts, which offer non-violent drug
offenders a last chance to avoid prison, hold
particular promise, because close supervi-
sion by a judge tends to concentrate the
minds of offenders and persuaded them to
seek treatment.
Yet even though many in law enforcement
praise drug courts as a way to hold down
recidivism, these programmes are still a
stretch for a criminal justice system designed
primarily to assess a suspect's guilt and mete
out punishments. And old habits are reassert-
ing themselves at drug courts' expense.
The Boston Globe reported last week that
state Probation Commissioner John J.
O'Brien has sought to curtail drug court ses-
sions, saying the benefits achieved do not
justify the added work for probation offi-
Also, Boston Municipal Court department
Chief Justice Charles R. Johnson has pro-
hibited judges in the South Boston, Dorch-
ester, and Roxbury drug courts from con-
ducting reviews of defendants' cases in pri-
vate. Johnson told the newspaper he sup-
ports drug courts but thinks all court business
should be conducted openly. Yet drug court
works only if offenders and judges can build

confidence in each other, and that is less'
likely when all proceedings occur in a public
Ideally, the courts would not need to dab-
ble in social work. BUt when society skimps
, on drug treatment, child welfare, or mental
health services, more arrests are the pre-
dictable result. The criminal justice system
should not be the social-work system of last
resort, but it does need to respond nimbly to
the mix of cases that come before it.
Northeastern University criminologist Jack
McDevitt notes that jurisdictions nationwide
are setting up specialized courts such as
drug courts and gun courts to deal with
specific problems. The "one-size-fits-all mod-
el" of criminal justice, he says, is increasing-
ly being rejected across the-country. But that
process isn't painless; though drug courts are
likely to cut costs over time, they require
money and human effort in the short term. If
drug courts are taking too much of probation
officers' time, the answer isn't to retreat; it's
to find a way to make things work.
There are limits to what drug courts can
achieve. "If you've got a 20-year heroin
addict," McDevitt says, "chances are, drug
court isn't going to save him." But plenty of
offenders aren't that far gone. Judges and
probation officers are performing a profound
public service when they intervene in the
messy lives of people who would otherwise
cycle in and out of jail.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
MY FELLOW Bahamians:
Our forefathers fought for
majority rule. Keeping this in
mind, on May 2, 2007, we, col-
lectively, the majority, the peo-
ple of The Bahamas, spoke
together, we all chose the Gov-
ernment of the Commonwealth
of The Bahamas for the next
five years. Whether we like the
winning party or not, we must
accept the outcome, it is as sim-
ple as that!
Therefore, from this point on,
we must put aside our party dif-
ferences and move on to the
next level. If you are 50 years
old now, in five years you will
be 55 years old, if it is God's
will. Question: What are your
plans for the next five years?
Our country has a problem
far greater than party politics.
No matter which party is the
Government of The Bahamas,
it can only be as successful with
the support of the people of
The Bahamas! There is no oth-
er way!
One of the biggest downfalls
of our people is that we do not
offer the best service to visitors
to our country. Many people
have complained that the ser-
vice here is poor. These people
deserve better service from the
people of The Bahamas
because they pump billions of
dollars into our economy, and
we must give it to them. Too
many of us want their money,
but, we do not want to work
hard enough to earn it. This
must stop and it must stop now!
People have a choice where
they can spend their vacation.
The Bahamas are not the only
islands in the sun. We know that
better than the tourists because
many of us do not take advan-
tage of the family of islands in
The Bahamas. At every oppor-
tunity, we jump on the plane
and head to the US. Well if we
continue to give bad service to
our visitors, they might just
catch on to that, and decide to
stop coming here altogether.
It is imperative that the Gov-
ernment of The Bahamas con-

attention from

NOBEL Peace Prize winner
Muhammad Yunus said Friday
the global fight against terrorism
has taken away momentum from
efforts to combat world poverty,
according to Associated Press.
The Bangladeshi economist
lamented that there is a long way
to go to meet the Millennium
Development Goals set by the
United Nations, which include
reducing extreme poverty by half
by 2015.
"The whole thing came with
enormous enthusiasm ... but that
enthusiasm got delayed along the
way," Yunus told reporters dur-
ing a news conference in the
Venezuelan capital. "Attention
went into the war on terror
rather than the war on poverty."
He said resources and the
attention of global leaders
"became focused on the war on
terror rather than on helping
achieve the millennium goals."
Yunus, who was in Caracas
for an event organized by a
Venezuelan bank, also met with
President Hugo Chavez and was
presented with the Order of the
Liberator, the nation's highest
"We firmly believe in one
common thing: creating a world

which will be free from pover-
ty," Yunus said at a joint news
conference, adding that Chavez
was, "inspiring everybody
around the world to take this
mission seriously."
Chavez praised Yunus, saying
that "few times has the Nobel
Prize gone to such deserving
hands" and reiterating his gov-
ernment's long-term goal of
"zero poverty."
Yunus shared the 2006 Nobel
Peace Prize with his Grameen
Bank for efforts to help the poor

Tribune Staff Reporter
THE implications for the Caribbean
region of a recent report on climate
change are "frightening", according to
the director of the Caribbean Commu-

The fourth assessment report of the
International Panel on Climate Change
(IPCC) shows that Caribbean agricul-
tural, health and tourism sectors could be
seriously impacted.
The report strengthened previous
assertions that small islands are espe-

Conditions favourable to diseases such
as malaria, dengue fever and cholera are

Decreasing rainfall and poor soil qual-
ity feed into scientists' predictions of
crop failures, resulting in food scarcity
and rising importation costs in the region.
However, as a country which does not
produce a significant portion of the food
it consumes, this particular prediction
would not be considered of serious con-
cern to the Bahamas.

Indies has called for more climate change
research to be focused on the Caribbean

FILMMAKER Michael Moore
has asked the Bush administration
to call off an investigation of his
trip to Cuba to get treatment for
ailing Sept. 11 rescue workers for a
segment in his upcoming health-
care expose, "Sicko", according to
Associated Press.
Moore, who made the hit docu-
mentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" assail-
ing President George W. Bush's
handling of the terror attacks of
Sept. 11, 2001, said in a letter to
U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry
Paulson on Fridaythat t he White
House may have opened the inves-
tigation for political reasons.
"For five and a half years, the
Bush administration has ignored
and neglected the heroes of the
9/11 community," Moore said in
the letter, which he posted on the
liberal Web site Daily Kos. "These
heroic first responders have been
left to fend for themselves, with-
out coverage and without care.
"I understand why the-Bush
administration is coming after me -
I have tried to help the very people
they refuse to help, but until
George W. Bush outlaws helping
your fellow man, I have broken no
laws and I have nothing to hide."
Harvey Weinstein, whose Wein-
stein Co. is releasing "Sicko," told
The Associated Press the movie is
a "healing film" that could bring
opponents together over the ills of
America's health-care system.
"This time, we didn't want the
fight, because the movie unites
both sides," Weinstein said. "We've
shown the movie to Republicans.
Both sides of the bench love the
film. The pharmaceutical industry
won't like the movie. HMOs will
try to run us out of town, but that's
not relevant to the situation.
"The whole campaign this time
was not to be incendiary. It was,
can Michael Moore bring both
sides together?"
The health-care industry Moore
skewers in "Sicko" was a major
contributor to Bush's 2004 re-elec-
tion campaign and to Republican
candidates over the last four years,
Moore wrote.
"I can understand why that
industry's main recipient of its con-
tributions President Bush would
want to harass, intimidate and
potentially prevent this film from
having its widest possible audi-
ence," Moore wrote.
Treasury officials in Washing-
ton said Friday they would have
no comment on the contents of
Moore's letter, citing a policy
against discussing specific investi-

(AP FILE Photo)
gations being conducted by Trea-
sury's Office of Foreign Assets
Control, the agency that enforces
the trade embargo against Cuba.
"Generally speaking, as admin-
istrators and enforcers of U.S. .anc-
tions, OFAC is required to inves-
tigate potential violations of these
programs," Treasury spokeswoman
AnnMarie Hauser said. "In doing
so, OFAC issues hundreds of let-
ters each year asking for addition-
al information when possible sanc-
tions violations have occurred."
OFAC notified Moore in a letter
dated May 2 that it was conducting
a civil investigation for possible
violations of the U.S. trade embar-
go restricting travel to Cuba.
Moore questioned the timing of
the investigation, noting that
"Sicko" premieres May 19 at the
Cannes Film Festival and debuts
in U.S. theaters June 19. The Bush
administration knew of his plans
to travel to Cuba since last Octo-
ber, said Moore, who went there in
March with about 10 ailing workers
involved in the rescue effort at the
World Trade Center ruins.
Weinstein said the investigation
would only help publicize the film.
"The timing is amazing. You
would think that we originated this.
It reads like a fiction best-seller,"
Weinstein said.
OFAC's letter to Moore noted
that he had applied in October
2006 for permission as a full-time
journalist to travel to Cuba, but
that the agency had not made any
determination on his request.
The agency gave Moore 20 busi-
ness days to provide details on his
Cuba trip and the names of those
who accompanied him.
Moore won an Academy Award
for best documentary with his 2002
gun-control film "Bowling for
Columbine" and scolded Bush in
his Oscar acceptance speech as the
war in Iraq was just getting under

THE Princess Margaret Hos-
pital's Department of Family
Medicine in partnership with
various sponsors hosted a
patient education seminar on
Wednesday under the theme:
Preventative medicine: focus-
ing on the family.
In their presentations, doc-
tors and other health specialists
encouraged Bahamians to live
healthy lives by taking preven-
tative measures.
Topics discussed included cer-
vical cancer screening, colon
cancer screening, prostate can-
cer screening, erectile dysfunc-
tion and prevention of cardio-
vascular disease in women.
Dr Karis Thompson-Major
spoke to patients about what
puts women at risk of having
cervical cancer.
She said starting to have sex
before the age of 20, having
many sexual partners, smoking,
using birth control pills, giving
birth to many children when
infected with human papillo-
mavirus or herpes and being
infected with a STD or having
sex with a partner with STD
puts people at risk.
Dr Thompson-Major also
spoke about the pap smear, a
method for early detection of
symptoms that can contribute
to cervical cancer.
She said all women who are
21 or older should have pap
smears, especially if they are
sexually active.
Dr Sabriquet Pinder-Butler
spoke about the importance of
colon cancer screening.
"There are people who are
at risk of getting colorectal can-
cer at a young age and so
screening should begin earlier
in persons with any of the fol-
lowing: a close relative with
colon cancer before age 60
years, a history of ulcerative col-

itis or Crohn's disease, and
those who have a history of
colon cancer or large polyps in
the past," she said.
Colon cancer begins in the
large intestine, the colon. Rectal
cancer begins in the rectum, the
part of the large intestine closest
to the anus, she explained.
There are five screening tests
that are done to find cancers
before they cause any warning
signs: digital rectal exam, fecal
occult blood test, double con-
trast barium, and colonoscopy.
Dr Catherine Conliffe
informed male patients of the
importance of screening for
prostate cancer.
Dr Conliffe said symptoms of
prostate cancer include having
trouble when starting to urinate,
a slow urine stream, frequent
urination, blood or pus in urine,
pain or burning feeling while
urinating, pain with ejaculation
and lingering hip or back pain.
She informed the audience
about how tests are done to
check the prostate gland.
"Some doctors perform the
normal prostate gland feel by
putting a gloved lubricated fin-
ger a few inches in the rectum
and also the DRE-digital rec-
tal exam," she said.
Dr Cherilyn P Hanna-
Mahase said cardiovascular dis-
ease is the leading cause of
death in women worldwide.
Dr Hanna-Mahase said car-
diovascular disease is brought
on when a person has changes
in blood vessels brought about
by an unhealthy lifestyle that

can include smoking, poor
dietary habits and physical inac-
"Having cardiovascular dis-
ease makes you more likely to

have high blood pressure, dra-
betes, high cholesterol or are
relatives of persons with car-

diovascular disease.
Dr Hanna-Mahase said pre-
vention is better than cure,
because heart disease is avoid-
able by following a heart-
healthy lifestyle.
All the doctors encouraged
those in attendance to have
check-ups with their doctors if
they are experiencing any
symptoms that could be
cancer, and to go for yearly

Bahamians crea


land rush in Family Islands:

BAHAMIANS are buying,
building and Family Island-
So says realtor Hazel Wicky,
who estimates the number of
calls from Bahamians looking for
land in the Family Islands has
skyrocketed in recent months.
"If we were lucky, we used to
get maybe five calls a month
from Bahamians inquiring about
property in the Family Islands,
now we get a lot more per day
and there is a much greater
urgency in their voices. They're
serious," said Wicky, of Island
Living Real Estate, an all-bro-
ker level firm. The trend is so
strong that another broker in the
firm dubbed it a "Bahamian land
"It is a complete reversal of
the trend that we experienced
for so long people from the Fam-
ily Islands wanted to come to
Nassau," said Anthony Wells,
another Island Living broker
who says vacant land accounts

for a large portion of his sales.
Island Living may be getting
more than its market share of
calls because most of its team of
brokers has roots in a Family
Island. Still, the sudden move to
secure land is "nothing short of
astonishing," says Wicky, a
native of Eleuthera.
"We're getting buyers from
across the board," she added.
"We're seeing professionals and
regular working people, young
and old. Older investors are
planning to retire on the islands
while young investors are setting
up bed and breakfasts or other
enterprises. We have people
wanting to return to the islands
where they spent their youth as

On Saturday, May 5th 100 cyclists between the ages of 4 and 74 gathered in Eleuthera to
participate in VMG Racing's 2007 Ride for Hope. By day's end the riders had logged
more than 4,000 miles collectively along the event route which stretched from the
North Eleuthera Airport to Palmetto Point. We are proud to report that more than $200,000
was raised for the benefit of the Cancer Society of the Bahamas. VMG Racing extends its
deepest thanks and appreciation to the cyclists, sponsors, and the many volunteers
who helped make the 2007 Ride for Hope so successful. We could not do it without you!

The bidding:
East South West North
.1 2 + Pass 3 *
Pass 3 NT
Opening lead ten of hearts.
From the very start, a fine
declarer envisages the play of the
hand as a whole. He is careful not to
segregate the problem of how to play
to a particular trick from the problem
of how to play the entire hand.
Take this case where West leads
the ten of hearts against three
notrump. It is certainly not difficult
for South to conclude that East has a
string of hearts headed by the A-J.
Ordinarily, declarer would play
the queen from dummy to assure
himself of two heart tricks. Certainly,
in most hands, that would be the

right way to handle the suit.
But here the proper play is the
nine of hearts, not the queen. The
purpose is to get East to duck. South
should be focused more on the
importance of winning the first trick
than in creating an extra trick in the
heart suit.
East is likely to duck if the nine is
played and if he does, South
makes the contract. He wins with the
king, overtakes the queen of clubs
with dummy's king, takes a diamond
finesse and finishes with nine tricks
consisting of a heart, six diamonds
and two clubs.
Of course, East might prove to be
a suspicious soul. When the nine is
played from dummy, he might start
asking himself all kinds of questions
and conclude that something is rotten
in the state of Denmark. He might
then go up with the ace in order to
lead -the K-Q and another spade,
defeating the contract.
Declarer cannot force East to
duck the heart by playing the nine,
but he is more likely to accomplish
his purpose by doing so. If the queen
is played instead, East is sure to take
the ace and will most probably shift
to a spade on the assumption that
South has two heart tricks coming.
Declarer thus shapes his play
with an eye on the contract rather
than on the extra heart trick he can
