Promoter charged

with robbery

and assault on .

DJ Chuck Fenda


* By NATARIO McKENZIE
ALPHA Sound's promoter
Trevor Davis, 40, of Marathon
Estates, was charged with the
armed robbery and assault of
Jamaican reggae star DJ Chuck
Fenda on Monday night.
Fenda, whose real name is
Leshorn Whitehead, was in the
Bahamas to perform at an
Alpha Sound's organised con-
cert Saturday night. However,
he did not go on stage because
of a pay dispute. Instead he
went to Abaco where he per-
formed in concert on Sunday,
returning to Nassau on Mon-
day.
According to court dockets,
it is alleged that Davis, while
armed with a handgun on
Monday, August 20, robbed
Whitehead of a platinum chain,
valued at $3,000, a Movado
watch, valued at $1,000, and
$300 in cash. Court dockets fur-
ther claim that on the same
evening Davis assaulted White-
head. The assault is alleged to
have taken place in Jubilee


Gardens where Fenda had
gone to a friend's house to
record an apology to the
Bahamian people and explain
why he had not -performed at
the Saturday night reggae
show.
Davis was not required to
enter a plea. His lawyer, Roger
Minnis, requested copies of
statements by the complainant
in the case.
Mr Minnis also told the court
that, based on his understanding
of what had transpired, the
armed robbery charge against
Davis was unwarranted, claim-
ing that it would be unjust to
have Davis remanded.
The prosecutor. Sgt Alexan-
der Bannister, assured the court
that all of the necessary docu-
ments would be made available
to Mr Minnis.
The case was adjourned to
Thursday, August 30.
The matter has been trans-
ferred to Court 6, Parliament
Street. Davis has been remand-
ed to Her Majesty's Prison until
then.

Calls by The Tribune to both
men yesterday to discuss Mr
Butler's termination were not
returned up to press time.
Mr Butler reportedly served
as general manager from 2002
before being seconded to

School repairs costing nearly $16m will


be done by start of term, says minister


* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
ADMITTING, but justifying the fact
that the cost of the school repairs pro-
gramme has exceeded the $14.7 million
originally budgeted by about $1 million,
Works Minister Earl Deveaux said yes-
terday he expected all scheduled repairs
to be finished in time for the opening of
schools.
"Most of the contracts are actually


completed and others 75 to 90 per cent
completed," said Mr Deveaux ahead of
the return of teachers to schools on
Monday, followed by students the fol-
lowing week.
However, the minister noted that at
this week's meeting to assess the state of'
repairs, there were five schools that pre
sented authorities with concerns inll
terms of undone repairs in key areas --
plumbing, electrical and roof leaks.
These included Government High
School, C W Sawyer, S (' McPherson.


Uriah McPhee and one school in
Arthur's Town. Cat Island amounting
to five out of a total of 181 contracts
issued.
Issues at these schools arose from a
mixture of factors, including some con-
tractors heing moire efficient than others
with their work, finding there was more
work to be done electricallv or in terms
of plumbing once a site was investigated,
or illn some instances, having to cope
with delayed materials.
I lowevcir, hle said that additional coln-
o


tractors have been brought in to address
the problems at those sites.
Overall there is "nothing that will pre-
vent schools opening," noted the minis-
ter..
The former government came under
fire last year when several schools
opened without significant repairs hav-
ing been completed, including Yellow
lilder Primary School, where as late as
November, 2006, teachers were protest-
ing about disruption created by incom-
plete construction work.


AUTEC team
says reefs are
recovering
from earlier

bleaching
incidents

* By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
REEFS around Andros have
shown signs of becoming
healthier after recovering from
tb-'leadching" incidents of
199b and 2u05. which were
caused by rising water temper-
atures.
This information was
revealed by Mark Simonello of
the AUTEC Coral Reef and
Temperature Monitoring Pro-
gramme yesterday as he told
members of the Rotary Club of
East Nassau about the work of
his team.
Mr Simonello explained how
dive teams have been survey-
ing reef sites around the facility
since AUTEC was first estab-
lished in Andros home to the
world's third largest barrier reef
- in the 1960s.
While originally a five-per-
son dive team surveyed five
sites once a year, the dives now
takeplace once every two years
due to funding cut back' s,',j
Mr Simonello.
Teams assess various ii
tors such as coral cove;
ductivity. mortality and ble
ing. as well as the number .-.
type of fish, algae and sea
urchins present.
Part of the purpose of the
AUTEC team is to "assess the ^
health of the reef relative to the
Caribbean" and to "assess the1
population of sea life relative
to previous years' studies." he
said.
However. Mr Simonello
omitted to offer many conclu-
sions based on the team's years
of research and when ques-
tioned, was unable to note any
"significant trends" other than
the 1998 and 2005 bleaching
events.
Commenting on the bleach-
ing phenomenon. which results
from a significant change in
water temperature. Mr
Sinmonello said it does not
"kill" the reef but causes it to
become more susceptible to
disease.
Asked to comment on the
health of the Androsian reef in
comparison to reefs across tic
Caribbean, he said he could not
make a cross-Caribbean corn
prison "as lie has not had th.
pleasure of diving at otiut
Caribbean reefs."
This was despite preliminary
ly statements that part of tihe

Mr Rahming said that acting
on a tip, the DEU officers went
to the harbour at around 10am
to conduct a surveillance oper-

The officers reported that
they witnessed suspicious

Mr Rahming said the officers
approached persons on the
scene, identified themselves and
informed them of their suspi-

During a search of the plastic

they suspected was marijuana,

Formal charges are expected
to be filed in connection with
the matter sometime on Mon-

EDITOR I L**' S TO THE EDITOR


SENATOR John McCain was fielding
questions at a town-hall-style meeting earlier
this month in Ankeny, Iowa, when a woman
raised her hand and asked him, "from one
white head to another white head," why he
wanted to be president in such troubled times.
"You're getting pretty old!" she said, after
praising his long service to the country. "And
it's such a hard job!"
McCain deadpanned, to laughter, "I'm sor-
ry I called on you."
McCain, R-Ariz., who will turn 71 on Aug.
29, it hoping to become the oldest person
ever elected to a first term as president. So on
the stump, he makes his experience a central
theme of his campaign, while keeping up a
grueling campaign schedule and showing his
not-inconsiderable store of energy, despite
injuries he sustained as a prisoner of war that
limit his mobility and a bout with melanoma
that left his face scarred.
McCain has recently been bombarded with
questions about the viability of his campaign
because of its fundraising troubles. But on the
campaign trail, his age is a subtler issue that
could affect his candidacy. Persuading voters
to hand one of the most difficult jobs in the
world to someone at an age when most peo-
ple are retiring, or at least cutting back, can be
a challenge. Ronald Reagan did it, winning
his first term at 69 and re-election at 73. But
some political analysts said Bob Dole's age
might have hurt him in 1996 when he ran at
age 73 and against the much younger Bill
Clinton.
But as people live longer, and work later,
the definition of what it means to be old is
changing.
Less than 1 percent of the people surveyed
in a New York Times/CBS News poll in
March said the 70s were the best age for a
president, while 52 per cent said the 50s were
the best age. And this time around, the field
contains a leading candidate in his 40s (Sen.
Barack Obama, D-Ill.) and several in their
50s, like Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-
N.Y., who will be 60 in October. Among
leading Republicans, Mitt Romney turned
60 in March, and Rudolph W. Giuliani is 63.
McCain said this spring that reporters
seemed to show more interest in his age than
the voters did, and he used his trademark
humour to try to defuse the issue.
"Usually, people watch my performance
to see if I need a drool cup, or stumble
around, or anything like that," he said at a
stop in Palm Beach, Fla. "Usually, people
just come and watch me, and I try to show
them the energy and vigour that I'm capable
of."


To that end, McCain keeps up a busy trav-
el schedule, criss-crossing the country for
fundraisers and campaign stops, and pack-
ing lots of events into campaign days. He is
not one to take a lot of downtime on the trail
- he is more likely to spend plane rides chat-
ting with campaign aides or reporters than
napping, and he fills in the gaps in his sched-
ule with interviews and conference calls and
other work. He has been known to pepper his
conversation with youthful expressions -
"urnm, duh!" is a favourite expression of sar-
casm and he has appeared on "The Daily
Show With Jon Stewart," which is popular
with younger audiences, 10 times, more than
any other presidential candidate.
McCain has a scarred, puffy left cheek from
surgery that he had in 2000 after doctors dis-
covered his third melanoma, and it is plainly
visible on television. His pale skin sometimes
looks even whiter than it really is, thanks to
the powerful sunblock he uses. And his war
wounds he broke both arms and his right
knee when his plane was shot down over
North Vietnam, and suffered more injuries at
the hands of his captors during five and a
half years as a prisoner of war have left
him with stiffness in his knee, and arms that
he cannot raise without difficulty.
But he still has a trim, fit bearing on the
campaign trail. He stays in motion at the
town-hall-style events he favours, pacing back
and forth with a microphone in hand while
parrying questions.
Age and health have surfaced as an issue in
past presidential elections, and political con-
sultants and analysts warned that the McCain
campaign must handle the topics sensitively.
The risk, they said, was that any gaffe by
McCain could get chalked up to age.
Rollins said that age "was the major issue
we worried about in '84." It grew in impor-
tance after Reagan gave some faltering
answers in his first debate with Walter F.
Mondale, the Democratic nominee.
Scott Reed, who managed Dole's 1It0
presidential campaign, said he thought that
health was a more important issue than age
these days.
"You have to take health head on. and be
aggressive about promoting your health
records, showing a campaign style that has
vigour, and most importantly not over-sched-
uling the candidate," said Reed, a McCain
supporter. "I think McCain has done a very
good job in his addressing the issue by play-
ing the experience card."

EDITOR, The Tribune
THE past two transitions
from an outgoing Government,
2002 and more recently 2007
certainly causes many to
observe and negatively com-
ment as to tile assertions of the
incoming government that they
found everything in chaos.
The PLP said it in 2002 and
we have heard it from every sin-
gle FNM Minister, Minister-in-
training and Junior since May
3rd.
My question is simple'?
General orders governs the
management of government -
it establishes very clearly the
constitutional position of a Min-
ister which is correctly estab-
lished in The Constitution and
then explains the job responsi-
bility of the Permanent Secre-
taries and those under them.
If in 2002 and 2007 the politi-
cians found chaos then where
were the reassignments fir-
ings, etc'?
Under the Westminster sys-
tem the Permanent Secretaries
manage, administer government
- the Minister on behalf of


government establishes "poli-
cies" Only!
Might it be best that the
politicians butt out of the sys-
tem and only interfere when
and only when the Permanent
Secretaries are not following
policy?
It is certainly frustrating being
totally unable to obtain even of
what is going on in any Min-
istry the current and long
standing practice of the political
appointee interfering is drag-
ging the system down and pro-
ductivity is heading further
south to zero.
All correspondence, especial-
ly that sent confidential is
required to be acknowledged
and then responded to within a
reasonably accepted time -
since May 3, 2007 I believe this
practice has gone out of the door
or is not understood by the Min-
isters full, in training or junior.
I certainly suggest the Per-


manent Secretaries have far
more knowledge on the subject
matters they are administering
as most of the Ministers are
attorneys and have no clue of
the business world.
Time costs money and the
Prime Minister as Head of Gov
ernment needs to accept this.
Delays in giving decisions,
directives cost the tax payers
and the country.
Must comment on the refusal
to approve the Cable Bahamas
proposed purchase of SRG-
this sends a bad message of
"political policy" interference
in a free enterprise system. If
BTC cannot survive on its own
then BTC is worthless, protec-
tionism Mr Prime Minister,
Madam Governor of The Cen-
tral Bank is not the correct way.
Sooner than you expect com-
petition will have to come.
On the same and identical
premise why didn't the author-
ities reject the merger of The
Guardian and your Tribune?

Time for the PLP to get


in step with the times


EDITOR, The Tribune
I AM sure that the Progres-
sive Liberal Party is able to
make the changes that are nec-
essary to fit themselves for the
future involvement in the poli-
tics of this nation, but I do not
think they are using the win-
dow of time that is allotted to
them. Theyv have allowed per-
sons of influence in the leader-
ship to promote an ongoing
brand of politics that is out of
step with what is required for
this era.
Within the past two months
there have been a couple of
statements coming from the
leadership of the PLP. these
statements mean nothing by
themselves but if one takes a
collective view, questions arise.
The public was told to expect
an election in 18 months or less
and then legal action was to be


taken to contest three of the
seats that were lost. Now there
are statements out of Grand
Bahama which indicate that the
former PM is fearful that Mr
Ingraham may call an election
before the legal disputes are
resolved.
It is a series of savvy political
moves, because if the scenario
plays out, the former PM can
guarantee himself another 18
months as leader, however ten-
uous. but, the PLP does not
have that kind of time. The
public needs to see that this
political body is able to make a
decision that is in the best inter-
est of the Bahamas. The
Christie administration brought
a kind of politics to the nation-
al scene that was so distasteful
to Bahamians that during the
last election when the political
strategists in the FNM made
the comparison between


Christie's PLP and Pindling's
PLP, many PLP's had no place
to run. It must have been
painful to participate in an elec-
tion where the party you were
going against is.led-by a person
whose public persona reminds
you of what your party used to
stand for.
We cannot escape the fact
that what the PLP was all about
was what the Bahamas was all
about, but somewhere along the
pilgrimage there was an obvi-
ous corruption and the trail led
off onto a path that was incon-
sistent with the founders' ideals.
It is ironic that exactly 40 years
after 1967. the party that is
responsible for the modern
Bahamas finds itself in a politi-
cal wilderness.

Cuba blasts
Hungary for
giving asylum
to migrants
N HAVANA
CUBA on Wednesday
branded Hungary an "imper-
ial accomplice" of Washing-
ton for agreeing to grant
political asylum to 29 Cubans
who were held at Guan-
tanamo Bay US naval base,
according to Associated Press.
Those given Hungarian
visas were among 44 Cubans
picked up at sea by the US
Coast Guard. Authorities
deemed the group at risk of
persecution if repatriated to
Cuba.
Many were dissidents and
some were at the base more
than two years.
The Cubans at the Guan-
tanamo base included 17 who
staged a hunger strike to
protest conditions, but it end-

Key says BAIC




must change


THE Bahamas Agriculturiall
and Industrial (Corporation
should return to ils mnnldale ias
the main vehicle for considering
and approving small and large-
scale development projects, said
BAIC chairman Edison Key.
"Doing this would eliminate
unnecessary red tape and thus
speed up the application process.
thereby generating an immediate
cash flow of both local and for-
eign capital, while at the same
time aid in the creation of Imuch
needed jobs," said Mr Key. N/MP
for South Abaco.
He said BAIC has been treat-
ed like an errant offspring, and
has been without a clear sense
of direction, resulting in the cor-
poration undergoing numerous
changes over the past 26 years.
But with renewed focus, said
Mr Key, BAIC can achieve its
original objectives, which are:
to assist in the creation and
development of commerce and


industry within the Bahamas,
as well as expand and create
opportunities for Bahamians to
participate in the economic
development of the country.
He said BAIC can achieve
these objectives with the help
of technical assistance and on-
the-job training as well as the
identification for joint venture
partners for varied fields of
endeavour.
Mr Key said he has formu-
lated several recommendations
which could have positive and
long-term effects for the sys-
tematic and sustained develop-
ment of the country's agricul-
tural and industrial sectors.
I Ie noted that land could be
made available for farming and
light industry by either selling or
leasing land to individuals or
companies which have
expressed an interest in ventur-
ing into these fields', with a stip-
ulated time frame for start-up.


Mr Key noted that consump-
tion and its related cost is a
major concern and the govern-
ment must explore ways to
reduce its dependency on
imported energy.
He said this could be done by
encouraging home-owners to
install solar systems as an alter-
nate source of energy, which
would have the effect of reduc-
ing electricity consumption to
each home by between 10 and
15 per cent.
Mr Key said that whenever
possible, plans for a new com-
mercial building should include
the construction of rain water
holding tanks.
He said this would drastically
reduce the dependence on the
city water supply and minimise
consumer costs.
Mr Key added that establish-
ing factories and processing
plants in the major Family
Islands should be an attainable

CHAIRMAN OF the Bahamas Agricultural and Industrial Corporation
and Member of Parliament for South Abaco Edison Key presented
recommendations for making the corporation more effective at a press
conference on Wednesday


goal for BAIC, and that locally
grown crops could be graded
and packed fresh for the local
market with major emphasis
on "quality".
Mr Key said experienced local
and foreign investors should be
invited to participate in these
ventures, which could expand
the country's agricultural base
in terms of food production and
develop much needed training
for young people.
He also noted that Abaco,
Andros and Grand Bahama have


thousands of acres of mature pine
that can be converted into
pressed wood, ply wood, clap-
board and frame wood.
Mr Key said portable sawmill
machinery could be used to
facilitate this effort.
"Harvesting of the mature
pine will prove beneficial to the
forest as it will allow the young
trees to grow more rapidly. Not
only this, but this industry could
create much more employment
and assist in stemming the out-
flow of hard country," he said.

This week In Days Gone By looks
back at Carleton Mitchell: sailor,
winter and winner of the prestigious
Newport Bermuda Race a record
three consecutive times, who died
on Monday at his home in Key
Biscayne, Florida He was 96.


i.


'6-. m-`b

.5s:


BORN in New Orleans,
Louisiana on August 24, 1910,
Mr Mitchell, after a short stint
in the retail business, moved to
the Bahamas and became a self-
taught photographer, and also
worked as a publicity photog-
rapher for The Bahamas Devel-
opment Board.
His work in photography con-
tinued when he enlisted in the
US Navy and organised and


directed the US Navy Combat
Photography Unit from 1942-
1945.
Mitchell's first deep water
experience came in 1932 after
dropping out of his junior year
at Miami University in Oxford,
Ohio to'sail aboard the
Temptress.
In 1946 Mitchell purchased
CARIB (John Alden's MAL-
ABAR Xll) and sailed


throughout the Caribbean,
afterwards writing his first arti-
cle for National Geographic
magazine and his first book,
Islands to Windward.
Mr Mitchell was best known
as a competitor for his victories
in 1956, '58 and '60 in the 635-
mile race from Newport to
Bermuda, winning in his 38-foot
yawl Finisterre.
Between the 1950s and 1970s.


one of the most popular and
successful boat models was
known as the Finisterre-type
yawl, Mr Rousmaniere said. Mr
Mitchell's 1960 victory in the
Newport Bermuda Race was his
last major competition.
He is survived by his second
wife, Ruth. His first wife, Eliza-
beth, predeceased him.
In Passage East. Mr Mitchell
wrote about the mind-set of


ocean racers: "Here we are,
nine men, driving a fragile com-
plex of wood, metal and cloth
through driving rain and build-
ing sea, a thousand miles from
the nearest harbor; no one to
see or admire or applaud; no
one to help if our temerity ends


in disaster. We are driven by
our own compulsions, each per-
sonal and secret, so nebulous
we probably could not express
them to our mates if we tried.
But in our own way, we are
about as dedicated as it is pos-
sible for men to be."

THE TIBUNESATUDAY, UGUST25,A007,EAGE,


SIn brief

Residents
return to
homes near
volcano
* MONTSERRAT
Olveston
TWO dozen Montserrat
residents have been
allowed to return to their
homes near the Soufriere
Hills volcano, six months
after they were forced to
evacuate by a growing lava
dome, according to Asso-
ciated Press.
Gov. Peter Waterworth,
who was sworn in last
month, said Wednesday
that the last homeowners
in the community of Old
Towne may return to their
properties for the first time
since February, when the
Caribbean island's exclu-
sion zone was extended
north.
But "should there be an
increase in volcanic activi-
ty ... they must be pre-
pared to move north at
short notice," Waterworth
said in a government state-
ment.
The announcement,
which affected about 25
people, came shortly after
reports that the risk from
the 3,000-foot high volcano
had lessened. Scientists
had feared a lava dome on
its northeast side could
crumble, spewing hot gas-
es, ash and rocks and
threatening nearby towns.
Roughly 50 other home-
owners in a different sec-
tion of Old Towne were
allowed to return on July
20.
Dwain Lovett, an Amer-
ican who retired to
Montserrat in 2004, said
the announcement was
welcome news for home-
owners, most of whom had
lived in rental apartments
and cottages during the
evacuation period.
"The evacuation caused
a good deal of emotional
distress and hardship," said
Lovett, 59, who moved to
the British Caribbean
dependency from a suburb
of Dallas, Texas.





ERPSPRO


Experimental maths



class taught at COB


THIS summer professors at
the College of the Bahamas
administered a innovative and
experimental mathematics pro-
gramme to a group of high
school students.
The aim of the initiative,
according to the facilitators Dr
Janet Patterson, William Eyk
and Shaniqua Fernander, was
to investigate the relationship
between students' participation
in such a programme, perfor-
mance in college-level mathe-
matics courses and their future
career choices.
The Mathematics Enrichment
Programme (MEP) offered 30
high school students the oppor-
tunity to develop their innate
mathematical skills in a way that
catered to the young people's
love of novelty, excitement and
technology.
The two-week programme
was launched on Monday, July
23 and ended on Friday, August
3.
From the outset, it was clear
that students understood that
they were in new and delightful
territory, the professors said.
"1 am learning to look at
mathematical problems from a
different perspective, knowing
that there is no right or wrong
answer to solving them," said
Anna-Ashley Fernender, an
enthusiastic participant in the
MEP.
"I cannot wait to show my
teachers and friends the new
concepts 1 am learning," she
said.
For a long time, mathemat-
ics professors have been con-
cerned about the relatively low
numbers of maths majors at the
College of the Bahamas.
The facilitators indicated in
their research that the college'
graduation statistics for the
years 2004 to 2007 showed that
only four out of a total of 1,936
students graduated with a BSc
in maths.
Furthermore, many students
come to the College of the
Bahamas with an A or B in
BGCSE mathematics, but can-
not cope with freshman courses,
they said. They may know
mathematical concepts and
equations, but do not possess
the skills to apply them in solv-
ing problems.
Consequently, in March of
this year the facilitators went
into Ministry of Education
senior high schools and with the
appropriate permission, admin-
istered an aptitude test to the
top stream of grade 10 maths
classes.


A IiN.










DR JANET Patterson, head of Mathematics Department at the College
of the Bahamas, said she enjoys seeing the students in the math
enrichment programme enjoying themselves while solving problems.


The intent was to examine
the analytical ability of the stu-
dents, how they perceived
mathematical problems and
how they went about solving
the problems.
The test was administered to
300 students, who had been
selected by their teachers.
Of this group, 30 students
were chosen and invited to be a
part of the MEP and 29 of them
accepted.
"On a daily basis the stu-
dents participating in the pro-
gramme integrated fun group
activities such as solving chal-
lenging mathematical problems
using story books or filling in
geometric patterns using simi-
lar shaped blocks," said the col-
lege in a statement. "Even
though the enrichment pro-
gramme ran through the mid-
dle of their summer break, the
students were enthusiastic and
highly motivated to come to
class."
The Mathematics Enrichment
Programme was made possible
by a grant from the college's
Office of Research, Graduate
Prog:.ammes and International
Relations.
MEP is an attempt to bridge
the gap between BGCSE and
first year college in the subject.
The hope is that this effort will
stimulate the students' interest
in becoming math majors when
they leave high school in 2009.
Many of the participants of
the programme said that they
felt privileged to have been
selected to be a part of MEP
and to have the opportunity to
learn every day concepts that
can be applied in and beyond
the classroom.
The MEP researchers will
monitor the progress of the 20


participants and invite them to
another summer programmenC
next year.

AUTEC team says reefs are

recovering from earlier

bleaching incidents

Miami Heat players dedicate basketball


court at school in Harbour Island


FROM page one
Lailir qi iL'siolned b\ Rotar
ailns :is to "w hat increment of,
change" in water r tempera-
tures lhas been noted by the
At ITFlC team, to some llmem-ill-
ber's disappointment Mr
Sinnelello 'aid he was unable
to provide that information
other than to say that data
shows that "'the temper alure
during t hose S.ummeC seasons
has been getting warm."
Commenting on concerns
raised in recent months about
the spread of the invasive
lionfish species in the
Bahamas. Mr Simonello said
that divers have noticed that
in the Andros area lionfish
have "multiplied and multi-
plied and multiplied and are
kind of out of control."
He said that the team had
noticed them at sites for
around three to four years,
and arc no\\ killing them and
reporting them to the Depart-
ment of Fisheries. according
to the recommendations of
government.
The ALUTEC representa-
tive said that ALITEC is com-
mitted to "protecting the
Bahamian environment and
natural resources."
AUTEC stands for Atlantic
Undersea Test and Evalua-
tion Centre. The US naval


facility is located on the east-
ern shore of Andros, and
underwater testing includ-
ing the use of passive and
active sonar --- as well as sea
and air launched undersea
weapon evaluations and mine
warfare tests are done in the
deep water of the nearby
"Tongue of the Ocean."
I'he facility has come under
fire from some environmen-
talists, backed by evidence
from scientists, for what has
been documented as a corre-
lation between the use of
sonar and whale beachings, as
active sonar is said to disori-
entate whales.
In an August hearing in a
south California court, which
ultimately resulted in a judge
barring the US navy fiom
conducting any further sonar
testing off the "biologically
diverse" coast of California,
the government argued that
the use of such sonar testing is
"critical to US national secu-
rity."
Asked yesterday whether
the AUTEC Coral Reef
team's research was a good-
will effort, separate from
AUTEC., or was in any way
seeking to determine the
effect that AUTEC's activi-
ties may have on the reef, Mr
Simonello said only that it is
"always a concern."


Harbour Island The 2006
NBA champions Miami Heat
may soon hbe scouting this
tourist destination for talent.
The seed for that aspiration
was planted Friday when the
Heat dedicated an entire bas-
ketball court system to the Har-
bour Island All-Age School.
"It is good to know that
wholesome activities are being
provided for children as a posi-
tive choice to the many distrac-
tions that exist today that may
lead them astray," said Minister
of State for Youth and Sports
Byran Woodside.


.In a partnership \with the
Ministry lf Toutrisll, the I least
brings youth p)roglmns to the
Bahamas, including charitable
events, basketball clinics and
educational prograinces.
The Heat also works with the
Ministry of Tourism to devel-
op co-branded marketing pro-
grammes that highlight the rela-
tionship between the organisa-
tions.
Bahamas Theme Nights, sig-
nage at arena events, co-brand-
ed advertising and promotions
on Heat.com are included in
these initiatives.

Abraham Butler dismissed

as GM of Water and

Sewerage Corporation


FROM page one
The letter adds of Mr Sher-
man, who has worked with
WSC since 1977. that "we are
sure that his promotion is well
deserved and hope that all
members of the Water and
Sewerage team will congratu-
late him on this new appoint-
ment."
When contacted by The
Tribune, Mi Butler did not
wish to coinniint ilon the mat
ter. btil h a.:ti'!d i"' ri' siti fF
awaiting min kul, i eca iluse i
don'i hat\ one at thl
momf nti. That s all I can say."
In response to this decision
by the government and
Board, T he Tribune received
an anonymous letter signed
by "Concerned Staff and
Union Members of the Water
and Sewerage Corp".
The letter suggests that Mr
Butler was fired for "political
reasons" rnd states that "the
union and staff are calling for
Mr Butler's immediate re-
instatement or all hell will
break loose."


The letter further states that
"this is one of the most non-
sensical positions the FNM
government has ever under-
taken. The FNM government
sent him back (to WSC) in
June just to fire him in
August."
"Butler is a decent and
patriotic Bahamian with a
wife and family to feed," the
letter continued. "His daugh-
ter is a medical student just
enrolled in medical school
and this is not right what is
i.tug done to him. If there
are any men and women of
goodwill left in this country,
they should rise to the occa-
sion now and stop the vic-
timisation of good Bahami-
an men who are-being perse-
cuted for doing the right
thing."
President of the Bahamas
Utility Service and Allied
Workers Union, Carmen
Kemp, had no comment on
the letter and it, contents,
when asked by The Tribune,
as she has just returned to the
Bahamas.

Opening lead queen of clubs.

This hand was played many years
ago by Harry Fishbein, well-known
New York expert. He bid and made
six spades, luckily staying out of a
grand slam that would have failed
because of the bad trump break.
However, it took a bit of doing just
to make the small slam. In case you
don't believe it, try the hand out on
your friends and see if they end up
with 12 tricks.
Fishbein won the club lead with
the ace and trumped a club at trick
two. When he then played the ace of
spades and discovered that Ealt had


( Calvin & Hobbes


the four missing trumps, he cashed
the queen of hearts and led the-A-K
of diamonds.
East could ruff the king if he
wished, but he would then either
have to return a spade, which would
provide an entry to dummy's ten and
permit the discard of two diamonds
on the A-K of hearts; or a heart,
which would be .equally ineffective;
or a club, which dummy could ruff as
South discarded a diamond.
East decided not to ruff the dia-
mond and discarded a heart instead.
Fishbein thereupon played the queen
of diamonds. If East ruffed, he again
could not avoid putting dummy on
lead. So East discarded another
heart.
Fishbein was then able to ruff the
nine of diamonds, establishing his
ten, and although East could overruff
if he wanted to, declarer could not be
stopped from scoring the rest of the
tricks.
The key play a hard one to
think of except in retrospect came
at trick two when Fishbein trumped
dummy's low club. If he had played
a spade to the ace instead, he would
have been defeated.
Let's say he had done this and
next led the A-K of diamonds. East
could ruff and return a club, and.
there would then be no way for South
to make the contract. The club piff at
trick two was a simple play to make-
but notmnany players would think of
it.

Horoscope


By LINDA Bl


SATURDAY,
AUGUST 25

ARIES March 21/April 20
While you don't want to have a dis-
cussion with a family member, you
have to early in the week. Listen to
what he or she says to you.
TAURUS April 21/May 21
Don't give up too easily when it
comes to something that you really
want, Taurus. A loved one gets you
involved in a family argument. Try to
help everyone come to an agreement.
GEMINI May 22/June 21
You have to be patient this week
while waiting for a close friend to
answer an important question. Don't
force the issue or you may not get
the response that you're hoping for.
CANCER June 22/July 22
Try not to get upset when a business
associate is in the spotlight instead
of you this week. He or she really
does deserve the praise. A close
friend needs help with a family
matter. Don't get involved.
LEO July 23/August 23
Keep your eyes and ears open at
work. There i' something strange
going on. Colleagues are counting
on you to .fiddut what it is. Don't
worry it isn't anything serious.
VIRGO Aug 24/Sept 22
You struggle with your perfectionist
nature early in the-week, Virgo. Do
the best that you can. Scorpio plays
an important role.
LIBRA Sept 23/Oct 23
An acquaintance tries to pull the
wool over your eyes early in the
week; don't let it happen. If you
really listen to what is being said,
you'll see that it can't be true.
SCORPIO Oct 24/Nov 22
A close friend confides in you this
week, Scorpio. Even though he or
she reveals some important informa-
tion, don't betray this person's trust.
He or she wouldn't do that to you.
SAGITTARIUS Nov 23Dec 21
A coworker gets into trouble and
asks you to lie for him or her. Don't
do it; it's not worth it. Besides, no
one will believe you anyway. You
can't lie. Blow off some steam this
weekend, you deserve it.
CAPRICORN Dec 22/Jan 20
Don't try to take control of a situa-
tion that you can't handle early in
the week, Capricorn. You know
your limitations; don't ignore them.
Let someone else take the lead.
AQUARIUS Jan 21/Feb 18
Don't make a hasty decision when-it
comes to your personal finances this
week. An old friend whom you
haven't seen in a while calls you.
Find out what he or she really wants.
PISCES Feb 19/March 20
You have several things to do this
week, Pisces, and a lot of people
are counting on you. Avoid dis-
tractions whenever you can.
