AROUND 5.30PM on Friday, the driver of this cement truck was about to drive off from this building
under construction when a white Ford F150 pulled in front of him. Unfortunately, the truck's airbrakes
had not built up enough pressure, causing the truck to roll back off the ledge into the building. No-one
was injured in the accident.

Police seize firearms

in crime crackdown

Tribune Staff Reporter
A NUMBER of illegal
firearms were taken off the
streets of New Providence this
week in the "relentless" fight
against crime, police said.
Due to increased vigilance
and concerted efforts by police
officers throughout the island,
as well as critical tips from the
public, the RBPF was able to
confiscate a number of illegal
firearms, which included an

AK 47, a 9mm pistol, as well as
188 live rounds of ammunition,
Asst Supt Walter Evans said
'We want to encourage the
public to continue to assist us
as we continue our efforts to
reduce crime in the communi-
ty," ASP Evans said.
"As we take these weapons
off the streets, it reduces the
fear within our community...it
reduces the possibility of
armed robbery taking place.
The more weapons taken off
our streets reduces the inci-

dents where persons are being

WASHINGTON Gen. David Petraeus
proved to be a slender political reed when he
testified before Congress this week.
President Bush had invested much of his
Iraq troop-surge strategy in Petraeus, -but
the Army four-star couldn't close the deal.
The general said several supportive things
from the White House point of view about
the usefulness of the recent escalation in
U.S. troop numbers. But he was not willing
to look into the future and make predic-
tions about the wisdom of fighting on end-
lessly. He's heard of Vietnam. President
Bush's speech Thursday evening was
designed to reaffirm an open-ended U.S.
commitment to his Iraq war policy. But he
faces growing scepticism both in the public
and in Congress.
Bush has gone through multiple rationales
for the war, all of which have been demol-
ished or abandoned. The basic question now
is what's the point of this? The military
brass, on the whole, has not been behind
this misadventure. When I sat next to an
admiral at dinner during the 2002 propa-
ganda buildup for the war he said to me, "I
want you to know the military is not for
this." I couldn't sleep for nights afterward.
Petraeus, a respected military leader and
no political dummy, told USA Today after
his two days of bipartisan grilling that he
recognized there would not be "national
consent" to anything like another decade
of "the level of forces we have right now
nor the mission set we have right now." So
his proposal was to withdraw the thirty thou-
sand troops added in the surge, which creates
an illusion of change. But a troop trim does-
n't really do anything but acknowledge the
surge made no lasting difference, except to
those who died in combat.
Petraeus insisted his views had not been
vetted in advance by the White House. But
clearly Bush is pulling the strings here, using
Petraeus to justify the surge because the
president lacks the credibility to do it on his
own. The president's approval of the han-
dling of the Iraq war is now languishing
around thirty-six percent.
Petraeus, by contrast, had a favourable
rating in a Gallup and USA Today poll of 52
per cent going into the hearings. The
Petraeus report had been oversold as a
bombshell that would consolidate congres-

sional and public opinion and provide polit-
ical cover for a shift in Iraq. But it was all
shell and no bomb. It didn't clarify a thing
despite the opportunity it afforded ambi-
tious politicians of both parties to pontificate
on their views of what should be done with
the mess Bush made in Iraq. Petraeus
gauged the political reaction to his trans-
parent military tap dance correctly.
Democrats, predictably, were not
impressed. Sen Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y.,
called it "too little and too late, and unac-
ceptable." Sen Barack Obama, D-Ill, laid
out a plan for immediate withdrawal that
would be faster and larger than the admin-
istration contemplates.There are new bipar-
tisan stirring on Capitol Hill to nudge the
president toward ways to reduce exposure of
our soldiers to this meaningless war.
This time. Democrats are seeking to lure
Republicans who have been reluctant to
speak out against their president. It sent
shock waves through the GOP when Sen.
Elizabeth Dole. R-N.C., a meek, robotic
Bush fan, suddenly spoke up to criticize the
administration and call for a "policy that
the majority of Americans will support" on
Iraq. Wow. All of this activity is complicat-
ed and mostly done in back rooms. So it's
not the stirring stuff of verbal combat on
the House or Senate floor.
The president simply wants to continue
doing what he wants, which is to dump this
garbage in the lap of his successor and ignore
Congress. But it's not that easy an\ more.
Even with Sen. l'im Johnson. D-S.D.,
recovered from his.long illness, Democrats
don't have the veto-proof margin of 60 votes
they need but they are creeping closer.
And if the situation in Iraq continues to
deteriorate, they may get the votes to pass
tougher measures and push the administra-
tion toward a strategic exit. Most of their
efforts are aimed at making life better foi the
troops, with more reasonable rotation poli-
cies, for instance.
Petraeus could not say whether he thought
the war had made America safer. But it
would be a start to make American soldiers

What's the point of Iraq War?

In addition, why aren't there
more kiosks at the airport, espe-
cially Bahamian owned? For
example Bertha's. Bahamian
Kitchen, Twin Brothers (for
that last daiquiri and conch frit-
ter), Bamboo Shack to name a
few, could provide that last little
taste of the islands before
departing And even if it is not
feasible for these companies to
open a kiosk, the point remains
that something has to be done
to improve the variety of
Bahamian services provided to
our guests and residents alike.
And, of course, what exactly
is the bathroom situation? Is
the present condition truly the
best that the Bahamas has to
And speaking of bathroom
situations, when will the Straw
Market be a sanitized area for
staff and patrons alike? Don't
get me wrong though, I am not
speaking politically, but nation-
ally, for regardless of who the
governing party is, we as
Bahamians are depending on
tourism and if we do not ensure
that our facilities and services
are of the highest quality then
we have no one to blame but
Instead of pointing fingers at
who is to blame, we need to
unite, focus and get the job
done. A certain international
investor has built up to three
phases of a project on Paradise
Island while we locals argue
about the proposed structure
and location of the straw mar--
ket. Ba\ Street like the inter-

national airport is a place fre-
quented by tourists and locals
alike, and yet, it is also un-
Bahamiansed and in poor con-
dition, and it doesn't reflect the
Bahamian commitment to
excellence in service to all, in
fact, Marina Village seems to
present more of the 'island
flavour' than the main thor-
oughfare in our nation's capi-
tal and that is unacceptable!
So, if we truly do mean what
we say, and Tourism is really
our main industry and form of
income then it is time to
demonstrate it and put our
money where our mouth is and
invest where it counts we are
not an extension of Florida,
even though we are very close
in proximity we are an inde-
pendent country, an archipel-
ago of beautiful, unique, pro-
ductive islands and it behooves
us Bahamians and locals alike
to embrace and promote our
Bahamian culture, through our
creativity, friendliness, integrity,
sounds, tastes, sights, national
resources, services and facili-
ties. And we are doing a disser-
vice to ourselves and our
descendants when we cheapen
the quality of our life, by short
changing the way we invest and
promote ourselves and our

Tl'e Iribthm' along with con-
cerned citizens and corporate
sponsors raised hundreds of
thousands of dollars to purchase
new dialysis machines also to
maintain them for a year and
to train staff. All of this for the
people of the Bahamas who
must undergo this treatment on
a daily basis. What a wonder-
ful job was done and 1 am very
proud of my Bahamian brothers

This is a seasonal position from October of this
year through May of 2008. Interested persons
must have a minimum of four (4) years experience
in the field, good presentation is also requested,
diplomas from the Nassau Hotel Training College
must be present as well.

The position of Head Chef de Partie will be
seasonal, with the possibility of full-time
depending on satisfactory performance. The
persons interested in filling this position must
meet these requirements: a minimum of seven (7)
years in the cooking field, standard diplomas from
The Bahamas Hotel Training College/College of
The Bahamas, pastry knowledge, garde-manger
and most importantly fine dining experience.
Management skills and people skills are a must.
This challenging position requires the individual
to be flexible, well-experienced in classical French
cooking, and able to be at the forefront of new
Bahamian cuisine.

Interested persons should apply by faxing
resumes to The Human Resources Director,

and sisters.
However, there is another
problem in our country which
we need to face as it is not going
anywhere and at some point
and time it will touch all of our
lives in one way or the other
and that problem is AIDS.
The AIDS Foundation is
doing what it can. The clinic is
being run efficiently and in a
successful manner. The med-
ications are being dispensed
free of charge and on this side it
seems everything is being run
smoothly. The donations even
though generous as they may
seem that come in from the Red
Ribbon Ball and Kerzner Int'l
are only scratching the surface.
The two wards which are the
Sealy or Female Chest and the
Corey Newbold of Male Chest
wards are in dire need of being
totally refurbished. The beds
need to be replaced as the
wheel cogs are infested with
roaches and this is where they
breed. All of the nightstands
needs to be replaced as this is
also a breeding ground for
roaches. There is a need for a
refrigerator for the patients to
use and this, ot course, will help
to eliminate the roach problem
as no food would need to be
left on the stands at night as it
can be secured in the proper
place. The Sealy Ward also
needs a new television as the

one that is there is not working
properly, it is like these wards
have been completely forgot-
There are only 13 beds on the
Sealy ward and, of course, 13
nightstands so the refurbish-
ment of this ward should not
cost as much as the dialysis
equipment. Now the Corey
Newbold ward probably has
about 20 to 25 beds and night-
stands and I don't know
whether or not they have a
refrigerator for the patients or
even a workable television.
So, this letter is to throw out a
challenge to the people of the
Bahamas and its corporate citi-
zens as well as the newspapers,
which include The Nassau
Guardian and The Punch, to
take up this cause and run with
it like was done for the dialysis

HOW long will we be
deceived and complacent?
Actions speak louder Ihan
words and no matter how many
times we say that tourismm is the
foundation of the Bahainian
economy, if our actions do not
demonstrate it then we are not
being realistic or ti uthful!
It is time to wake up into
accountability Bahaiias, for the
time has come and gone for us
to stop feasting at the table ol
mediocrity and now is the time
to upgrade our mindset along
with our resources and our
actions and investments need
to corroborate with our state
ments and assertions.
The newly named interna-
tional airport has the potential
to be so much more than the
antiquated, unfinished mon
strosity that it is today, and
being the primary point of entry
to our many visitors, it seems
almost redundant to draw atten-
tion to the many flaws, and yet,
after 20 plus years, it is still in a
poor condition. Many of the
changes and renovations need-
ed are not even 'major' in
nature, but almost common-
sense and obvious, and vet, they
remain undone.
Since the international airport
is located in the nation's capi-
tal. New Providence, and, has
been newly named after Sir
Lynden 0 Pindling. it would be
a step forward in the right direc-
tion to have a portrait and short
bio of the man for whom the
airport was named. In addition.

Ballot boxes
would not
have changed
Jamaica poll'
HUNDREDS of votes found
uncounted in two ballot boxes
would not have changed the
outcome of parliamentary races
in the Caribbean country, a
Jamaican judge ruled, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
After a tally of the votes -
from security forces and elec-
tion workers who voted a week
before the September 3 general
elections it was determined
that they would not have made
a difference in the results, Mag-
istrate Sara James-Thompson
said Wednesday.
Elections Director Danville
Walker said officials inadver-
tently stored the two boxes
from the eastern parish of St
Mary along with 280 counted
ones in canvassing headquar-
ters in the capital of Kingston.
"We regret the inconvenience
and disquiet that our mistake has
caused and apologise," Walker
said in a statement Wednesday
before the votes were counted.
"We assure the public that this
was not intentional or done to
favor any candidate."
Prime Minister Bruce Gold-
ing led the Jamaica Labor Par-
ty to a narrow victory and a 33-
27 parliamentary majority in the
vote, ousting the country's first
female prime minister, Portia
Simpson Miller. He was sworn
in Tuesday.

Sugar union
want 12 per
cent rise

A TWO-DAY-OLD strike
by cane cutters and other sugar
workers will continue until the
state-owned Guyana Sugar Cor-
poration agrees to increase
wages by 12 per cent, union offi-
cials said Wednesday, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
The strike by 15,000 workers
at coastal estates has already
cost the company known as
Guysuco 3,000 tons of sugar
production and losses will
exceed US$2 millionif it con-
tinues a third day, said Paul
Bhim, a company spokesman.
The Guyana Agriculture
Workers Union called the work
stoppage Tuesday after rejecting
proposed pay increases of 6.5 per
cent, saying that would not allow
workers to keep up with the rising
cost of food and other basic items.
No meetings have been
planned with company officials,
union treasurer Rooplall Per-
saud said.
Guysuco, the largest sugar pro-
ducer in the Caribbean, is expect-
ed to yield 281,000 tons this year,
most of it for export to Europe.

PM in Trinidad

for disease talks

PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham is leading a delega-
tion to a historic ('ARICOM
meeting in ITrinidad on the
fight against non-commnunica-
ble diseases.
Chronic non-communicable
diseases such as diabetes and
hypertension have been iden-
tified as being major killers
throughout the Caribbean.
The CARICOM Heads of
Government Summit on
Chronic Non-Communicable
Diseases (CNCDs) was
launched on September 12 at a
media clinic via video confer-
ence organised by the CARI-
COM Secretariat.
It is being held under the
theme: Stemming the tide of
non-communicable diseases in
the Caribbean.
In his opening statement.
Prime Minister of ''Trinidad and
Tobago Patrick Manning, who
will host this summit on Sat-
urday, said the major objec-
tives are: informing the region
of the magnitude of the prob-
lem, devising strategies for pre-
vention of risk factors and
establishing a collective
approach for accelerating the
management and control of
the diseases.
According to Prime Minis-
ter Manning, the statistics on
NCDs in the Caribbean were
alarming and while many
strides had been made in
health development in the
region, there is still room for
However, he affirmed the

region's commitment to give
priority to the issue.
"That we are meeting as
heads of government on this
matter indicates the priority
that CARICOM has placed on
the topic." Mr Manning said.
He pointed to initial pre-
ventive steps taken to curtail
NCDs, including the imposi-
tion of tax on tobacco in some
member states as a major step.
Mr Manning said he hopes
the summit would not only
devise strategies to stem NCDs
but would also identify and
treat the root causes.
He also called for the full
support of the media in part-

I was supposed to be paying

time ago cracked eggs were
50 per cent off regular prices.
Now we. as consumers are
getting cracked eggs at regu-

consumer and is disgusting!
While we are on the subject
of eggs, the cartons plainly
say that the eggs are either
large or extra large, but when
you open the cartons only
small eggs are inside have
you seen any cartons lately

RBC launches new Caribbean jingle

REGIONAL entertainers
have collaborated to produce a
new sound for Royal Bank of
Canada's brand in the Bahamas
and Caribbean region.
The bank said it has commis-
sioned a new jingle that captures
the message that RBC wants to
communicate to its customers
"in a memorable and engaging
melody set to the rhythms and
sounds of the Caribbean".
A team of musicians and
bank employees from around
the region participated in the
creation of the jingle that was
finally sung by Bahamian per-
former Alia Coley and co-pro-
duced by musicians Fred Fer-
guson who led the project, and
Sammie Poitier.
The final lyrics were written
by Alia Coley.
"We wanted to ensure that
the musical style was authenti-
cally Caribbean," said Mr Fer-
guson, a musician, writer and
one of the founding members
of the Grammy Award-winning

critics who charged that the
courts too often granted bail to
alleged offenders.
"Yes, you complain about us
that we give bail, but there is
something called the constitu-

"The constitution of the

Dame Joan said "there is no.

of crime in the country.
"It's been allowed to go too

was made to make impeccable
service the focal point.
"The gloved hand symbolises
the sophistication and the dig-
nity of our industry."
Already banners have been
set up at strategic points
throughout New Providence
and the islands featuring a sin-
gle piece of a puzzle with the
question "Where do you fit in?"
Jingles are employed to rein-
force the theme. To show the
importance of tourism to the
national economy, radio adver-
tisements will illustrate "The
house that tourism built", and

television spots will pay tribute
to tourism's high performers.
Substantial public relations
and field programmes will also
be launched "to ensure that the
hard work that we are speak-
ing about is also being tackled
in the trenches in the real
world," said Mr Grant.
The minister also announced
partnerships with the Bahamas
Out Islands Promotion Board,
the Bahamas Hurimane Society,
and the Department of Envi-
ronmental Health Services.
He encouraged Bahamians to
take pride in their surroundings:

The bidding:
East South West North
1V 24 3V 44
5 Pass 5V 5 4
Pass Pass Dble
Opening lead -jack of diamonds.

Some deals seem so cut-and-dried
to declarer that he scarcely pauses to
think before starting to play. This can
be a dangerous and costly practice,
as evidenced by today's exhibit.
After making a pre-emptive two-
spade overcall, South wound up in
five spades doubled and was de-
lighted by the dummy his partner
tabled. Certain he was about to make
his contract with an overtrick, he put
up the ace of diamonds and led a
spade to the ace.
When East showed out on the

first spade, declarer suddenly real-
ized he was in deep trouble. He did
the best he could by playing the K-Q
of spades and conceding a trick to the
jack in hopes the defenders would try
to cash a heart before taking two dia-
monds. In that case, he could ruffthe
heart and dispose of his third dia-
mond on dummy's fifth club.
But West returned the three of
diamonds after winning the spade,
and East had no trouble diagnosing
the situation. Since West had led
high-low in diamonds, indicating a
doubleton, East knew declarer had
started with three cards in the suit. So
after taking the second diamond,
East played another diamond to set
the contract one trick.
South should have recognized at
the outset the danger posed by a 4-0
spade division certainly a strong
possibility on the bidding and
stopped to consider what he could do
to counter that threat. Had he done
so, he might have found the solution.
The winning play is simple, but
not obvious. All South has to do is to
refuse to take the first diamond trick!
If West started with a doubleton dia-
mond a virtual certainty given the
bidding and opening lead the con-
tract is assured.
Assuming West continues with a
diamond, declarer takes the ace and
plays four rounds of trump. West
wins the fourth spade but cannot
return a diamond, and South is home.

Evgeny Vasyukov v Ratmir
Kholmov, Moscow 1964.
Material is level, but Black's king
is unsafe since the pawn guards
at g7 and h7 are targets for
White's queen and bishop.
However, there doesn't seem a
way through because Black's f6
bishop is an excellent defender.
Top grandmasters have a flair
for spotting any unusual feature
in a position which can ensure
the success of an otherwise
unsound or dubious tactic, and
that's what occurred here. How
did White force resignation in
just two turns?
The Staunton Memorial,
London's grandmaster
tournament, continues today

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