96 MURDERS
IN YEAR DOGGED
BY 'MAYHEM'
THE country's homicide count
stood at 96 at the end of 2010, a "trag-
ic" year dogged by "murder and may-
hem."
The last murder of the year occurred
when armed gunmen shot and killed
44-year-old Maxene Metellus on New
Year's Eve after they broke into his
home early that morning. His death
marked the 96th homicide for 2010.
Police said three masked men, one
of whom was armed with a handgun,
entered Mr Metellus' home on
Arawak Avenue and Cadet Street at
3am on New Year's Eve and demand-
ed cash.
During the break-in the men tied

Leaders gather for

'strategy' meeting

but deny rumours


By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net
THE National trade Union
Congress of the Bahamas last
night denied speculation that
members of the umbrella union
were being encouraged to pull
out of work today.
"I don't know anything about
that. There's no such thing
(planned)," said NCTUB pres-
ident Jennifer Isaacs-Dotson in
response to rumours that work-
ers were set to engage in a mass
sick-out today.
Representatives of the
NCTUB, the Trade Union
Congress, along with BTC's
unions the Bahamas Commu-
nications and Public Officers
Union and the Bahamas Com-
munications and Public Man-
agers Union gathered for a
fourhour "strategy" meeting
yesterday in their continued
fight against government's
impending $210 million sale of
BTC to Cable'& Wireless.
While not divulging the
specifics of that meeting,
BCPOU President Bernard
Evans told The Tribune to be
prepared for "something big."


"We just came out of a meet-
ing with the NCTUB and the
TUC stragetising the way for-
ward, fine-tuning where we left
off and our continuing efforts
going forward. Rest assured
that we are planning something,
one in particular is a mass rally
for next Monday," he said.
He said the next protest will
be "similar to what happened
back in '58", referring to the
1958 General Strike, but added
that if the planned action goes
through essential services will
not be suspended.
"I have kids too, they need
water and light but something
similar will happen," he said.
Yesterday, Bahamas Public
Services Union President John
Pinder who represents civil
servants said he had not heard
of any planned action for today
and advised union members not
to act prematurely before meet-
ing with Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham.
"I don't think it's good to go
into a general strike or a sick-
out until you can meet with him
(Mr Ingraham)," said Mr Pin-
der.

o move into



Mackey Yard


LESS THAN 20 WOODEN SHANTIES remain in the area on Alan Drive off Carmichael Road known as 'Mack-
ey Yard' following the blaze which consumed 120 homes on Boxing Day. It is unclear whether or not these
structures will be demolished as the government seeks to reclaim land in the area. In the aftermath of the
fire, it was estimated that each house was occupied by at least four people.

HEAVY demolition
equipment is due to move
into the fire-ravaged Hait-
ian village today as the
government steps in to
reclaim the land.
A food distribution cen-
tre for the 300-plus people
who were made homeless
by the blaze was moved
over the weekend in an
effort to get the victims
away from the site.
Relief officials said they
were concerned by the
reluctance of the displaced
residents to leave the site
and take up residence in
the limited and in some
cases far-flung shelters.
On-site donations trick-
led to a halt yesterday,
according to Haitian pas-
tor Celiner St Louis of
Gospel Assembly, who said
offerings included only
clothing leaving displaced
families, including about 45

food and water.
Pastor St Louis said:
"People have clothes but
we have problem right now
for food and for water for
their children.
"We would like to thank
the Bahamian people for
all that they have done to
help the Haitian people -
and we continue to ask for
whatever help we can get
as it is a very bad situation
right now."
Food checks were issued
by Social Services last
week, however Pastor St
Louis explained the
amount was nowhere near
enough to afford indepen-
dent relocation.

Family
Henry Culmer, a
Carmichael Road resident
who frequents the area,
explained that some per-
sons were discouraged
from seeking shelter as it
meant they would have to
separate from their family.
Mr Culmer added: "Most
of those facilities are sepa-
rated male to female, so I
think that's one of the rea-
sons, and, then they didn't
want, to separate from the
Haitian community. They
would prefer to be around
the Haitians as opposed to
being around other people

guages."

SOME 45 CHILDREN, former residents of the fire-ravaged Haitian village off Carmichael, will be unable to attend school this week due to lack
of resources. Last night; community leaders indicated there was still an intense need for food, water and shelter for many families who were
displaced in the Boxing Day fire.


at the site is expected, to
commence at the discretion
of the Ministry of Works
this week, in the aftermath
of the Boxing Day fire
which consumed more than
100 homes in what was
believed to be one of the,
oldest Haitian villages in,,,
New Providence,


Parliamentary Secretary
Brensil Rolle said: "Once it
is cleaned, it will be cor-
doned off and the govern-
ment will take possession
of the land with perhaps
an understanding that the
land wilf-beturned over to
.t.h MNinistry .of Housing.
w, which wi-.then become


available to Bahamians for
purchase."
It was unclear whether
demolition would start
today, as Minister of
Works Neko Grant could
not be reached for .com-:
ment.
Mr Rolle explained that
the wooden shanties bor-
dering ground zero there
were less than 20 which
were unaffected by the
blaze will remain
untouched.
Mr Rolle added: "Not at
the moment, only the area
affected by the fire.
"The Ministry of Works
is going to make a deter-
mination on which struc-
tures should stand, those
that are occupied for the
time being they will not be
demolished.
"The department of
Lands and Surveys and the


Ministry of Housing is
putting down the stakes to
further identify the just
under eight acres of gov-
ernment property in'the
area."
Last week, government
officials registered a total
of 120 households, and esti-
mated more than 100 chil-
dren were made homeless
by the, tragedy.
The food distribution
centre for fire victims has
been moved to the Queen
of Peace.Catholic Church
on Faith Avenue,
Carmichael Road.
Main organizations dedi-
cated to relief efforts are
the Red Cross, the Salva-
tion Army, and Great
Commission Ministries.

POLICE are investigating
a stabbing at the Waterloo
nightclub on East Bay Street
which took place in the early
hours of New Year's Day. -
The attack took place at
around 3am in the area of the
poolside bathrooms follow-
ing an argument between two
unidentified men. The 30-
year-old victim was attacked
with an "unknown object."
Charles Johnson, co-owner
of the nightclub, called the
incident unfortunateg."
He added: "We are still
trying to get to the bottom
of what happened."
The nightclub employs
security officers who perform
checks for weapons on the
door.
Police did not release a
report of the incident to the
media, and it is unclear what
may have inflicted the vic-
tim's injuries.
The club owner expressed
concern that people involved
in incidents such as this may
not always go to police but
may seek to "take matters
into their own hands."
"It seems like young peo-
ple today have this mentality
that if you stab me, I am not
going to tell the police, I am
just going to walk up to you


and stab you," he said.
It is not clear if police
attended the scene of the
crime. Mr Johnson was not
at the nightclub when the
stabbing took place. He said
he was unsure if this was the
case.
He said he has not been
contacted by police in con-
nection with the incident, but
added that he believes his
staff would have called the
police to report the attack.
The holiday weekend
recorded two more stabbings
that day, according to a
release from police.
Sometime around lam a
Love Hill, Andros, man was
stabbed multiple times fol-
lowing an argument with a
woman in Fresh Creek. He
was taken to a local clinic
before being airlifted to Nas-
sau for treatment.
At around 5.30pm on Sat-
urday, January 1, police
attended the scene of the
attack at Mount Pleasant Vil-
lage.
"Police responded and
information received that a
20-year-old man was at Mt
Pleasant when he was
approached by another male
who robbed him of his cell
phone and subsequently
stabbed him to the chest. The
victim was taken to hospital
via EMS personnel where his
condition is unknown. Police


are investigating," said a
release from Police Sergeant
Chrisyln Skippings.
Meanwhile, in two other
incidents, victims were
threatened with weapons and
robbed.
Shortly after 1pm on Sun-
day police attended the scene
of an armed robbery at
Fourth Terrace and Collin's
Avenue.
"Police responded and
information received that,a
male was walking to his vehi-
cle on 4th Terrace when he
was approached by two
males one of whom' was
allegedly armed with a hand-
gun, demanding cash.
"The culprits robbed the
man of his wallet containing
an undetermined amount of
cash and a cell phone and
fled the area on foot into the
Hawkins Hill area.".
Hours later, at 8.30pm,
police attended the scene of
an armed robbery at Thomp-
son Street, Stapledon Gar-
dens, where it was reported
that two men, aged 21 and
17, were threatened by three
males, one armed with a
handgun, whilst on the local
basketball court.
"The culprits robbed the
men of cell phones and jew-
ellery and fled the area on
foot in an unknown direction.
Police are investigating," said
Sgt Skippings.

PM's BTC debate will be in the House


AFTER MEETING for four hours yes-
terday "to plan the way forward" unionists
were tight-lipped about their future plans
for a mass demonstration.
However, by the end of the day a report
was spreading that "they" no one would
say who "they" were hoped to get as many
to demonstrate today as possible. It was not
clear whether this would be.in the form of a
sick out; go slowor' placard-a'rrying
demonstrators.moving to the streets. How-
ever, union leaders were'quick to deny this
rumour, which persisted throughout last .
evening.
It was also claimed that the movement is
now taking on a more political flavour with
the unionists in the forefront.
In a full page advertisement in today's
Tribune under the auspices of The
National Congress of Trade Unions and The
Trade Union Congress Bahamians were
invited to support the unions' national cam-
paign "The Bahamas for Bahamians" -.
in "the great debate" over the privatization
of BTC.
According to the advertisement the
BCPOU has invited Minister Zhivargo Laing
to a debate on the privatization of BTC, and
not Mr Julian Francis. "
Last week BTC Chairman Francis chal-
lenged union leaders.to a televised debate o .-
the pending sale of the state-run utility com-"
pany. Mr Francis would be the best person to
debate the issue because he is the only per-
son who sat with union representatives on
the privatization committee under both the
PLP and the FNM.
In inviting the two union leaders to a
debate, Mr Francis said he would. like to
have both Mr Bernard Evans of the BCPOU
and Mr William Carroll, president of the
BCPMU, in front of him so that he could
"shame them publicly anytime they're,
ready."
. It is obvious that Mr Francis, the only
man with the whole background of both the
PLP and FNM government's attempts to
sell BTC, could probably shame the two
union leaders who are newcomers to the
privatization committee, having served on
the committee only during the FNM's
administration.
The unionists have rejected Mr Francis'
offer because "he has publicly stated that
his personal agenda for the debate is to
'shame,' embarrass and humiliate the rep-


resentatives of Bahamian workers."
However, the unionists must remember
that the Bahamian public the rightful
owners of BTC not: only want, but are
entitled to the full truth, and Mr Francis,
being the only person who has been there
from the beginning, is the only one with a
grasp of the whole picture. Regardless of
who is embarrassed the public'wants to know
everything that went on behind the scenes ---
they do not expect Messrs Evans and Carroll
to know the dealings of the PLP adminis-
tration. However, the public wants to know
that too. It is also entitled to Pknow why the
PLP did not sell BTC at the beginning when
they had what was considerectat the time "a
good offer." All this should be laid out for
Bahamians, so that they will not only know
where they are coming from and why, but
also where they are headed and also why.
This is no reflection on Mr Laing, but like
Messrs Evans and Carroll, he too is a late
comer to the bargaining table for BTC. All
things considered, short of the Prime Minis-
ter, Mr Francis is the best man to give the
answers. *
It is understood that, as a result of a'
request, Prime Minister Ingraham had
agreed to meet with' Mrs Jennifer Dotson,:
president of the National Congress of Trade
Unions of the Bahamas, and the executi 'es
of each of the unions that came under the
NCTUB's umbrella. However, the condi-
tions of the meeting were that she would
'submit the names of the president and offi-
cers of each union that-would be meeting
with him. It is understood that Mrs Dotson
agreed with Labour Minister Dion Foulkes
to send a list of the names. The names were
never.submitted. Consequently, the meeting
never took place..
Prime Minister Ingraham has now made
it clear that the only debate that he will
undertake on the matter will be in a public
place the House of Assembly.
The government, he said, does not intend
to have a debate outside of the House with
the union, and if Mr Francis chooses to
debate them, he will not be speaking for the
government.
The House meets again after the Christ-
mas recess on January 19 when Mr Ingraham.
-is expected to table the .Memorandum of
Understanding and give notice of govern-
ment's intention to privatise BTC. A date
will then be set for the debate.


Developers




offering big




discounts on




vacant land


EDITOR, The Tribune.

We note with interest that
land developers are now
offering huge discounts on
vacant land.
This should be of interest
to appraisers, lot owners in
those subdivisions, bankers
who provided financing and
prospective buyers. Why
appraisers? Because a com-
petent appraiser will look
for comparable, properties
sold within the, last six to 12
months, so that he will be
able to arrive at a fair mar-
ket value. Why lot owners?
Because a lot owner ought
to be concerned whether or
not his/her investment. is
appreciating. Why bankers?
Obviously, the bank wants
a net return on its invest-
ment.. The point is, if a
developer is offering a huge
discount today, how is the
buyer affected who bought
one year ago, could it be


that the bank is holding a
worthless piece of paper?
For example, one year
,agq, a lot was sold for
$100,000.00; the buyer puts
down a deposit of $5,000.00.
The bank lends him
$95,000.00 to pay off the bal-
ance. So the bank is holding
. a mortgage of $95,000.00.
The buyer makes twelve
payments of around
$1,177.36 f6r a total of
$14,134.00 at 8.5 per cent
interest. $8,076.00 of that
amount is put towards the
interest. The principal is
$6,058.00. Therefore, after
the first year, he owes the
bank $88,942.00. And here
comes the developers and
offers that same lot at 30 per
cent discount $70,000.00.


So now, a prospect is able
to purchase that lot at $70k,
yet the financing institution
is holding mortgage and
the balance on that mort-
gage is $88,942.00.'
The question arises is that
.mortgage a worthless piece
of paper?
And should the owner
walk away?
Of course there is no mys-
tery to what we're describ-
ing. This is happening every
second of the day in the
USA. And we're not trying
to raise the alarm. Only sim-
ply to say, we believe that
banks and owners ought to
be aware that they could be
holding a worthless piece of
paper.

EDITOR, The Tribune.
I lived in the Sandilands Village area for
some years. My grandchildren came to visit
for. the Christmas season, and. during this. time-
the children started complaining about insect
bites. . ..
To my concerned I started looking over,
their little bodies and to my surprise the chil-
dren were.getting bitten all over. their bodies
from head to toe.
My grandchildren cried saying they wanted
to go home.
Then I began getting bitten up too, so I
started to inspect my home all over realizing
my house was infested with fleas.
It was out of controlled and I was so shocked
because I have no animals at all and never
did. I was short of funds and had to turn to
someone to help to purchase insect spray and
different medications from the store for all of
the family.
Oneof the grand had to see the doctor he
had a fever and the doctor gave the child a skin
antibiotic and a.shot. Ev yone had to spray off
on the skin and now everyone is feeling sick
from all the spraying on the skin and house-
hold.
For a long time people get these puppies
then as the dogs grow they do not care where
they go, whose garbage turns over, how much
noise is made to others at night, stooling in oth-


er home owners' yards, running down cars
and people walking, digging up home own-
ers' yards, breading puppies all over the place
- just to get' a few dollars for something they
need and even worse the nightmare of same
dogs barking themselves to death because he
owners are so sick in their heads themselves
they do not care.
And last my grand said, Grammy cars speed
making 80 to 100 miles on Sandilands Village
Road, that it wakes them up all hours of the
night .and they and myself can feel the win-
dows, doors and ground shaking. .
Every other road in that area off Fox Hill
Road has bumps in the road except Sandi-
lands Village Road, why is this? Andrew.Dri-
ve, Yamacraw area, Kool Aces all over, Pine
Yard, Sea Breeze Lane, etc. Please someone
help.
Fleas and speeding vehicles. Looks lilleithe
area is going to the dogs.
I knew always about the rats invasion, but
this is crazy now.
So many have to purchase rat poison and
still rats are all over the place. Why is that? For
goodness sakes do. not talk to a neighbour
they will curse you to death.
Wishing everyone a blessed New Year!

Govt should ban shopping

on Boxing Day and Sundays
EDITOR, The Tribune.
THE government should ban shopping on Boxing Day
(whenever it falls on a Sunday) and on all Sundays. Western
civilisation, despite its diversity, was founded on Christian
principles.
Keeping the Sabbath holy means that the Lord's Day should
be marked from beginning to end by grateful and active remem-
brance of God's saving work. Sunday is the day of rediscover-
ing the true nature and deep roots of joy. This joy should nev-
er be confused with shallow feelings of satisfaction and pleasure,
which, as in the case of shopping and sports, inebriate the
senses and emotions for a brief moment, but then leave the
heart unfulfilled and perhaps even embittered. In the Christian
view joy is more enduring and consoling. It leads to a more
intense time of sharing, and encouraging all the inventiveness
of which Christian charity is capable.
As a day of rest Sunday is a day in which we are called to
withdraw from the sometimes excessively demanding cycle of
earthly tasks in order to renew our awareness that everything
is the work of God. In this way Sunday becomes the soul of the
other days so that the perfect Christian is, in a sense, always in
the' Lord's Day.

Residents question Mackey

By NOELLE NICOLLS

nnicolls@tribunemedia.net
MACKEY Yard residents
of the Haitian community
question the "shanty town"
image held of their area by
their neighbours.
One community member
said the "shanty town" per-
ception was not reflective of
how people lived inside the
village, before the Boxing
Day fire flattened hundreds
of homes.
"All the homes," she said,
"have lights and some peo-
ple Lave bathrooms with
running water."
At least two BEC electri-
cal poles could be seen in
the area cleared by the fire.
BEC officials visited the site
to conduct a "routine
inspection" of the area after
the fire.
Asked if the poles were
installed and authorized by
BEC,, one manager said the

then shared power with oth-

Colin Higgs, Permanent
Secretary at the ,Ministry of
Works, told the press that
the buildings in the shanty
town surrounding BEC's
utilities would not have met
the minimum building stan-
dards required to access
electricity through BEC. He
said it is a well known prob-
lem that individuals often
disburse power from the
BEC supply to multiple
homes using long extension
cords.
Pastor Edward St Fleur,
spiritual adviser, said some
residents in Mackey Yard
had land line telephones. He
said many of the amenities
inside the Haitian commu-
nity were the same as those
in neighboring subdivi-
sions.
"I don't see them living
independently of the author-
ity or government or people
across the street. It just
might not be at the same
level," said Pastor St Fleur,
referring to the amenities
inside the Haitian commu-
nity.
Despite the pervasive crit-
icism of Mackey Yard from

neighboring communities,
one neighbour said the Hait-
ian village outdates most
home owners in the area,
and they should be more
tolerant of cultural differ-
ences.
"People claim it is unsafe,
but look how long they have
been there without any inci-
dent, and they' burn garbage
in there and use kerosene
lamps sometimes. They are
trying to apply city regula-
tions, when any rural area
in the world has different
standards," said a nearby
resident.
"They are culturally dif-
ferent.
"It's a rural, natural
lifestyle versus a sedentary,
city lifestyle. They have
been here from before the
1980s. When the people
viewed their houses and
bought their houses they
knew the village was there.

NEWSNIGHT 13's northern service will still be aired live
and broadcast to Grand Bahama and Abaco, however the rest
of the Bahamas will not be able to view it.
Michael Moss, chairman of the Broadcasting Corporation
of the Bahamas (BCB), explained that in addition to $80,000
per year in incremental telephone charges, consumer response
indicated the national broadcast of the northern service was
a "duplication of efforts".
National broadcast of the 6.30pm northern service has
been discontinued and prominent local stories will continue
to be highlighted in the 7pm national news segment.
Mr Moss said: "Given the cost and being responsive to
the concerns of our audience, also given our mandate to
become a public broadcast we want in the national broadcast
to incorporate more general news from around the Bahamas,
as opposed to a Nassau-centric or a Grand Bahama-centric
newscast."

News
The northern service was initially intended to serve Grand
Bahama, Abaco and Bimini, however Mr Moss admitted the
broadcast offered little coverage for two latter family islands.
Going forward, Mr Moss said the northern team will operate
as a satellite office, gathering news from the northern region.
Mr Moss added: "We're going to try in the first case for it
to be Abaco and Grand Bahama we're going to make a con-
certed effort. If it works, then we will bring Bimini back into
the loop."
In October, the corporation commenced mass layoffs in the
transition to make ZNS an independent public service broad-
caster as determined in the 2009 Communications Act.
The government received heavy criticism from the oppo-
sition party and industry unions over the downsizing, however
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said the government act-
ed honourably, paying the laid-off staff more money than
they were entitled to.
Following the layoffs, the board started a wide-ranging
operational review aimed at securing a sustainable future
for ZNS as a public service broadcaster.
After bringing its financial losses under control by cutting
staff levels, it was reported that the BCB would work towards
implementing a new business model focusing more on com-
munity-oriented news, entertainment and information.
In the future, based on the success of efforts at the north-
ern station, Mr Moss said the corporation would seek to
implement a Southern Bahamas news service.
National Security minister Tommy Turnquest, who has
responsibility for ZNS, refuted statements released by the Pro-
gressive Liberal Party over the weekend, which indicated
the northern service news had been terminated completely.
Mr Turnquest said: "It's still going to be live, and it hasn't
been cancelled. The only thing that has changed is that it
will no longer be broadcast nationally. This is just part of
the restructuring phase ZNS is going through. The news from
Grand Bahama, Abaco, Bimini and elsewhere in the Bahamas
will still be a part of the national news."

Majestic Crusaders declared the official winners


BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock@tribunemedia.net
FREEPORT The Majestic Crusaders were
declared the official winners of the New Year's Day
Junkanoo Parade in Grand Bahama. It is the first
win for the young group which has been competing for
' less than six years.
The.Grand Bahama Junkanoo Committee released
the official results on Monday morning at the Inter-
national Building.
For the first time ever, all the Division B groups -
Rotary International, The Scraps, Bushwhackers and
Sting were disqualified for failing to meet the min-
imum group requirement for the parade.
The Crusaders won in the Divisign A Category,
receiving a total of 2,778 points and beating last year's
champions by some 350 points.
The Swingers was second with 2,428 points, and
coming in third was the Classic Dancers, with 2,360.
points. The Superstar Rockers was fourth with 2,239
points, and fifth and sixth place went to the Kingdom
Culture and Bayshore Warriors, respectively.
Committee chairman Derek King said the evening
parade continues to grow in Grand Bahama, attract-
ing some new groups and large spectator turn-out.
"Junkanoo in Grand Bahama has grown over the
years. It is not at the level as it is in Nassau, but it con-
tinues to grow," he said.
Mr King commended the groups that participated
this year, despite the economic downturn which has
resulted in the loss of some corporate sponsors.,
"The quality of costumes was fantastic," he said.
The parade got off to a very late start, with the first
lap beginning at 8pm. Thousands of residents and


visitors lined the parade route on Pioneer's Way and
the Mall Drive.
This year, some groups had suffered significant
costume damages after culprits broke into their shacks
and deliberately destroyed costume pieces which had
to be repaired.
Mr King noted that some groups were challenged
in getting to the parade which resulted in one group
withdrawing at the last minute.
While there is a lot of pressure on groups to get out
on time, Mr King said it all boils down to leadership
and organization.
"I think the Swingers demonstrated that and came
out at the gate on time at 6pm withall of their pieces,"
King reported.
Unfortunately, the Arawak Invaders pulled out of
the parade at the last minute because of some diffi-
culties.
"We want to encourage them to continue to keep
the faith because we do not want group members to
be discouraged. Mr King said. Once you miss the
parade you start to see groups losing members to
other groups because the junkanooers really want to
rush."
Mr King thanked major corporate sponsors such as
the Grand Bahama Port Authority, Grand Bahama
Power Company, and Sanitation Services. He also
commended BTC for coming on board this year.
He said some corporate sponsors could not par-
ticipate this year, but the committee hopes that they
will be able to support next year's parade.
Mr King also commended the junkanoo committee
members and volunteers who have worked hard to
pull off a successful parade.
The Junior Junkanoo parade will be held on Janu-
ary 8.

2011: lime to make up your mind


By SIR RONALD
SANDERS
(The writer is a
Consultant and former
Caribbean diplomat)
AT the end of the first
decade of the 21st Century,
I wrote with a profound
sense of disappointment
that it was a "lost decade"
for the Caribbean Commu-
nity and Common Market
(CARICOM). We had
failed miserably to com-
plete the Caribbean Single
Market and Economy
(CSME) and we had equal-
ly failed to build collective-
ly the capacity that all
CARICOM countries des-
perately require not only


to bargain effectively in the
international community
but also to implement the
things for which they have
bargained. The first year
of the new decade was even
worse, and 2011 portends
greater grief unless CARI-
COM governments make
up their minds about real
and effective integration.
The time for tinkering at
the edges of integration has
run out. CARICOM states
must now either resolve to

proceed with integration,
and by so doing maintain
some autonomy over their
affairs, and crucially a
Caribbean culture and
identity, or they can flirt
with such short term oppor-
tunities that they might
derive individually from
external governments that
find it convenient in their
own interest to dally with
a few states separately.
The latter is not a sustain-
able development option,
and is wholly reliant on the
designs of the donor, not
the bargaining strength of
individual CARICOM
states.
Failure to strengthen
CARICOM has not only
weakened our already
weak states, it has lost us
respect in the international
community. And, this is
true of every aid agency
and every international and
multilateral financial and
trade institution including
the Canadian International
Development Agency, the
European Commission and
the European Develop-
ment Fund, the United
States Agency for Interna-
tional Development, the
World Bank, the Inter-
American Development
Bank and the World Trade
Organisation (WTO).
What they see from their
perspective is a region that
fails to carry out its own
agenda a region that pays
lip service to regionalism.
The things that are obvious
to them are blatant: failure'
to complete the CSME; dis-
crimination by CARICOM
states against themselves as
they try to block market
access to each other for
goods and services while
they are happy to give bet-
ter access to others; a
marked reluctance to apply
for readily available money
for regional projects gov-
ernments are interested in
national projects only; and,
the comedy that has been
made of the Caribbean
Court of Justice (CCJ) with
Trinidad and Tobago
declining to participate in
a Court whose headquar-
ters is located in its Capital
as a direct consequence of
its insistence that it should
be there; and, more recent-
ly, the heavy hint from
Jamaica's Prime Minister,


SIR RONALD SANDERS
Bruce Golding, that
Jamaica might opt for its
own final Court of Appeal,
notwithstanding that it has
an eminent jurist on the
Court, and the opportunity
for others./
The recent Golding
heavy hint is strangely out
of synchronisation with the
Jamaican government's
measurable, attitude to the
institutions of the
Caribbean Community
where Jamaicans now pre-
vail and will be even more
dominant by April 2011.
Jamaicans now head
four principal regional insti-
tutions: the Caribbean
Development Fund, the
'Caribbean Export Devel-
opment Agency, the
Caribbean Centre on Mon-
ey and Finance,, and the
Office of the Trade Nego-
tiations (OTN) of CARI-
COM. By April, a
Jamaca'n will also head the
Caribbean Development
Bank putting five
Jamaicans at the headship
of these regional organisa-
tions, and another
Jamaican will most likely
move up from the number
3 position in the OTN to
number 2. In addition, of
.course, Jamaica has a jurist
on the CCJ itself. No other'
'CARICOM country can,
boast of heading so. anv
region al 'odies. -
These Jamaicans are all
highly capable people
working in the service of
not only Jamaica but all of
CARICOM, and accepted.
by all of CARICOM to
look after CARICOM's
,interest."'
What then is the prob-
lem with the CCJ? If
CARICOM can show such
confidence in Jamaicans,
what is missing here?
The CCJ shambles has
'added to the level of frus-
tration and now increas-
ingly disrespect for
CARICOM in the interna-

"Failure to strengthen

tional community. But, not
amongst them alone; the
frustration is now nianifest
among the region's acade-
mics, business people,
media, and all those who
spent the better part of
their lives trying to main-
tain a Caribbean identity
and culture, and, at least, a
modicum of Caribbean
autonomy over the region's
affairs.
It is obvious to all who
are, or have been, involved
in our region's develop-
ment that none not one
of our countries will suc-.
cessfully maintain,
Caribbean autonomy, cul-
ture and identity if the pre-
sent trend of individual and
opportunistic bargaining
with larger and more pow-
erful countries continues.
None of the CARICOM'
states have the capacity,
individually, to cope with
the demands of today's
globalised world.
For instance, in the case
of the Economic Partner-
ship Agreement (EPA)
with the European Union
, (EU), few governments
have established machinery
for implementing their
obligations, and it would be
a great surprise if any have
set up arrangements for
monitoring implementation
by the EU. '
What would seem to be a
simple thing like sending,
notifications that require-
ments have been met has
not been done. And, not,
,only i relation to the EPA,
but also in regard to the
WTO.
It may be, of course, that
this is a deliberate strategy
a strategy not to fulfil
obligations until the oblig-
ations of the treaties are
enforcedby the other side


through costly arbitration
. and, eventually, punitive
measures. If that is indeed
the strategy, it is a game of,
high-stakes poker, and.not.
one that the region can win.
The point is that CARI-
COM states have to decide
whether they see theii
development in terms of
gifts for the odd building"
a new Airport terminal, a
bridge here and a road
there that are small plas,
ters for sores, but do not
make the region holistical-
ly healthy. While there is *J
place for these things in;
development plans, they'
cannot be thd-entire plan.
\ What CARICOM .has,
,always needed and what
is urgent now is a com-
prehensive regional plan
devised jointly by govern-
ments, the private sector
trade unions and the best
Caribbean brains that can!
be assembled from in and;
out of the region. And, that
plan must integrate pro-
duction in a practical manyI
ner utilising resources from
every country that hasi
them, facilitate cross bor-
der investment, and
encourage regional amall
gamations of productive
enterprises .
The beggar thy neigh-'
bour policies that have,
characterised the region's;
dealings for a decade and
a year, should not continue
into 2011. It is time for
leaders of individual states
to make up their minds,
state the case for regional-
ism bpldly,.and stop playing.
with the aspiration$ of the
Caribbean people.

Italian fugitive requests

release from Brazil jail
RIO DE JANEIRO


DEFENSE attorneys for an Italian fugitive wanted in con
necction with a murder in his homeland are asking the Brazild
ian Supreme Court to release him from prison, according tq.
Associated Press.
Attorney Renata Alves Peixoto says the defense has request4.
ed that ex-leftist rebel Cesare Battisti be freed "as soon as
possible." .
Battisti was convicted of four murders committed in the late
1970s in Italy. He escaped from prison in 1981 while awaiting
trial and was tried in absentia in 1990.. He arrived in Brazil ini
2004, and was arrested three years later on Interpol orders.
On Friday, President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva decided not
to extradite him despite pressure from Italy, citing the petit
tioner's "personal condition."
Peixoto told The Associated Press on Monday the decision
allows Battisti to be freed. :I


Hackers attack Brazilian

government's website
BRASILIA, Brazil
OFFICIALS say hackers tried to take the Brazilian governT
ment's website off the air a day after President Dilma Rousseff
was sworn in, according to Associated Press.
The government says in a statement that the attack Sunday
caused the website to become unstable but it was never off the
air. The statement says that hackers overloaded the number of
accesses to the site to try to disrupt it.
Monday's statement says that the attack "did not put the pies-
idency's site in danger" and no confidential information was
accessed or destroyed.
A congressman, meanwhile, denounced several death threats
made against Rousseff on Twitter during her inauguration.
Florisvaldo Fier of the ruling Workers Party said the threats
must be investigated and not taken lightly.

who ripped the necklace off
his friend the son of a local
politician as they were leav-
ing Club Luna, in the Saun-
der's Beach area of West Bay
Street.
In an interview with The Tri-
bune from his hospital bed yes-
terday, Mitchell said: "We
were sitting in my buddy's
truck after leaving the party
and some guy came by and
snatched his chain, so I imme-
diately pursued him.
"By the time I got down the
road his friends had pulled up
And one guy got out of the car
with a knife. I tried to turn
around and run away but I
tripped and fell down and he
stabbed me seven times.
"I got up and I started run-
ning back to the truck. I didn't
even realise how many times
IJ'd been stabbed. All I was
focused on was getting back to
the truck and getting to the
liospital."
4 Mitchell was stabbed in the
shoulder, chest, stomach and
lack and lost three litres of


blood despite efforts from his
friends to stem the flow. A
police report said the attack
occurred in the area of Marlin
Drive, off West Bay Street,
with the attacker emerging
from a white Nissan Maxima.
His mother was wakened to
her worst nightmare at 6.45am
that morning by a phone call
telling her that Mitchell was
being rushed into emergency
surgery. "I was not calm. I
jumped out of the bed," said
Mrs Walls.
She and Mitchell's father
then flew down immediately
to be by their son's bedside.
The medical team had to
remove his spleen and part of
his pancreas. His diaphragm
was also lacerated.
While Mitchell put on a
brave face yesterday, his moth-
er said one of the hardest parts
of the traumatic affair for the
student was the news from his
surgeon, Dr Duane Sands, that
Mitchell may have to take a
break from college for up to
three months while he recov-
ers. A political science major at
Acadia University in Nova
Scotia, Mitchell was looking
forward to making a switch to.


studying kinesiology and phys-
ical education this semester in
the hopes of becoming a
teacher.
"I'm doing a lot better. A
lot better than a few days ago.
I'm hoping to heal up and get
back to school and go on with
my life the best way I can.
That's all I can really do,
right?" a weak, but positive
Mitchell told The Tribune.
He said he does not bear any
bad will towards The Bahamas,
and his mother said he hopes
to return to enjoy some of the
activities he did not get to par-
ticipate in because of the
attack. "I've just got to be
more careful next time. Make
more careful decisions,"
Mitchell said.
Meanwhile, his mother had
only praise for the Ministry of
Tourism, the Sheraton Nassau
Beach Resort which offered
to put up Mitchell's parents
during their stay after hearing
of their ordeal and Mitchell's
friends, who remained with
him in the hospital through-
out.

Mitchell's mother that the gov-
ernment intends to implement
stricter regulations to govern
the gold-buying industry this
year.
Mrs Walls said that her
belief the industry may play a
role in increasing crime came
from discussions with Bahami-
ans she has met since coming
to Nassau to be with Mitchell -
and Mitchell's friends yester-
day agreed. Such claims have
been on the increase this year,
with residents from Nassau to
Harbour Island claiming a pro-
liferation of gold merchants
have created a burgeoning
market for stolen gold jew-
ellery.
"From what I am hearing,
it's a huge problem. People are
getting robbed getting jew-
ellery ripped off their necks,
and in Mitchell's case, they
tried to kill him for it," said
Mrs Walls.
Mr Vanderpool-Wallace
said the government had
already been moving to
respond to what it recognized
as problems with the industry
prior to the issue being raised
by the Canadian family and he
expects that Mrs Walls will be


kept up to date with develop-
ments in this regard.
"We will be coming out with
some regulations early in 2011.
I spoke with the Attorney
General (John Delaney) about
it and they had in fact been
done three weeks prior to this
incident. The Attorney Gen-
eral will provide (Mrs Walls)
with a copy of the regulations
once they are put in place," he
said.
Up until yesterday when
inquiries were made by The
Tribune, awareness of the inci-


dent had only been raised in
the Canadian press this week,
in a news article which quoted
local Bahamian police officials.
Sergeant Chrislyn Skippings,
police press liaison for the
Royal Bahamas Police Force,
said the incident was not
reported to the local media at
the time it occurred because
she herself did not become
aware of it until days after-
wards when she made inquiries
based on questions put to her
by a Canadian journalist.
The Tribune sought, but was
unable to obtain an update on
the status of the investigation
up to press time yesterday.

TWENTY-four Phil's Food Services employees were out of
a job on new year's eve.
Explaining the decision, Phil Lightbourne, owner of the

all part time employees who were taken on specifically for the
Christmas period and some of them had also broken company

According to the businessman, the lay-offs do not indicate

96 murders


up a woman, who police said was
his wife, but there was a struggle
when the robbers tried to tie him
up. At some point during the
struggle Mr Metellus was shot
in the chest. Emergency med-
ical assistants pronounced him
dead at the scene.
Police had no suspects in cus-
tody up to press time and
appealed for information on the
killing.
"Nobody is in custody and we
are still asking assistance from
members of the public on that
matter," said Superintendent
Clayton Fernander, of the Cen-
tral Detective Unit.
According to Mr Fernander,
police statistics show there were
96 homicides for 2010 94 mur-
ders and two were classified as
manslaughter cases.
Anti-crime activist and politi-
cal hopeful Rodney Moncur said
the government "must get seri-
ous about tackling the worri-
some issue and execute convict-
ed murderers."
"Last year was a very tragic
year in fact it was a very depress-
ing year and I thank God that we
haveleft 2010," said Mr Mon-
cur yesterday.
-"We did not reach 100 even
though 96 is far too many. There
is only one way for us to reduce
this level of murder and may-
hem, that is for laws to be passed
to deny bail to persons charged'
with murder. Once a person is
convicted, 21 days later the mar-


shall should read the death war-
rant which forces persons to
launch an appeal and if he does-
n't, he is executed.
"But everybody has lost
respect and fear for the law and
nothing has changed (this year).
The dynamics remain the same,
government doesn't seem seri-
ous about dealing with this issue,
it's a serious problem with an
easy solution start hanging."
Police are also investigating
another early morning robbery
which took place on Friday, at
Cordeaux Avenue.
According to reports, a man
was approached when he arrived
home by two men wearing dark
hooded jackets, one of whom
was armed with a handgun. The
gunmen robbed the man of an
undetermined amount of cash
and fled the area in a gold-
coloured Maxima. In another
incident, a man was chopped
several times when leaving a par-
ty in the Kennedy subdivision.
According to police reports,
he was attacked by a group of
men. He was taken to hospital in
a private vehicle and was listed in
serious condition. Police are
investigating the incident.
On Augusta Street, a 31-year-
old man was shot ii the leg
shortly before 2am on Friday.
The victim was taken to hospital
where he was treated and
allowed home. ,


Unions: no mass sick-out planned


FROM page one


I He said the government should sell a minority stake in BTC as
opposed to the offer of 51 per cent if they are set on privatising
the company.
"We (the labour union movement) are all in the same accord in
hopes that we can get the government to change the memorandum
of understanding (MOU) so rather than 51 per cent being sold to
Cable & Wireless we would hope that 49 per cent can be sold or
less.
"(But) I don't the want the NCTUB to make this a union mat-
ter the union does not own BTC, the Bahamas does. It's impor-
tant to educate the Bahamas on Cable & Wireless. BTC is the only
(public) company that is profitable and they could have gotten
more for it."
A meeting was scheduled between the nation's chief and the
NCTUB, initiated by Labour Minister Dion Foulkes, last Wednes-"
day but did not go ahead as planned.
"The meeting was scheduled but it wasn't confirmed," said Ms
Isaacs-Dotson. Meantime the unions have formed a collective
movement dubbed "The Bahamas for Bahamians" calling workers
across the country to join them in solidarity in their stand against
BTC's sale. They have challenged State Finance Minister Zhirvargo
Laing for a national debate on BTC's privatization and have
accepted BTC chairman Julian Francis' offer to argue the issues in
a public forum.

'ATM Card Safety Tips'


By CONSTABLE 3011
MAKELLE PINDER
Use Your ATM Safely
BE OBSERVANT
The most important key to using
your ATM card safely is to be obser-
vant and look around for any suspi-
cious persons or activity near the
ATM machine. If you see anything
that looks suspicious, go to another
machine or return later.
HAVE YOUR,CARD
IN YOUR HAND
It is a good idea to have your
ATM card in your hand and ready
to use as you approach the ATM
machine so that you do not have to
take extra time at the machine to
take the card out of your wallet or
purse.
SHIELD YOUR
TRANSACTION
Use your body or hand or an
object to shield the ATM keyboard
when you enter your PIN. Do not
give someone else the opportunity.
to see the number that you are
entering.
DON'T LEAVE YOUR
RECEIPT
Be sure to take your receipt or
transaction records with you when
you leave.
PUT AWAY YOUR CASH.
Put your cash away immediately in
your pocket, wallet or purse. Do not
display or count it at the machine.
You can always count it later.
KEEP YOUR CAR SECURED
Lock your car if you have to get
out to use the ATM machine. If you
use a drive-up ATM machine, lock
all doors and be sure the passenger-
side windows are rolled up.


-


9


USING AN ATM AT NIGHT
If possible, take another person
with you.
Park in a well-lighted area as close
to the machine as possible.
Do not use the machine if the
lights on it are not working.
"If the view of the ATM machine is
blocked by overgrown bushes or
trees, or any other objects, use
another machine.
Notify the bank about the visibil-
ity problem.
PROTECTING
YOUR ATM CARD
Keep your ATM card a safe place
and protect it just like you would
cash, credit cards or checks. Do not
leave -it around where others can see
your card, at home or at work. If
your card is missing or stolen notify


your bank immediately,
Never write down .your Personal
Identification Number (PIN) any-
where, especially on your ATM card
or on a note in your wallet. Keep
your PIN number secret from every-
one.
If you receive a call supposedly
from your bank or possibly the
police wanting to verify .your PIN,
do not give that information. Notify
the police immediately that you
received such a call. Never give any
information about your ATM card
or PIN over the telephone.
Should you be a victim of crime,
please do not resist but take note
of the description of the culprit e.g.
his/her appearance, clothing, height,
physical details and the direction or
mode of escape. Call the Police as
soon as it is safe to do so.
If you come across any suspicious
persons) loitering around your busi-
ness or have any information per-
taining to any crime, please do not
hesitate to contact or call the police

pers at 328-tips (New Providence),

REAL ESTATE: Start

on the right foot


By MIKE LIGHTBOURN
MANY Bahamians set
real estate goals for the
New Year which often
include the purchase of
homes, commercial prop-
erty or vacant land in Nas-
sau or the Out Islands.
As you consider buy-
ing your first home, or
vacant land on which you
intend to construct your
first home, you'll need
advice.
You shouldn't do any-
thing without a complete
understanding of your
financial situation and
how much home or other
property you can afford.
Don't forget the stamp
duty exemption for which
you may be able to quali-
fy. So, where do you
begin?
There are two parts to
financing the down pay-
ment and the balance of
the purchase price.
Find the best interest
rate by shopping around
,the various banks.
It is important that you
do this in advance of your
real estate search.
You will also find sev-
eral firms (including ours)
which offer vacant land
purchases with owner
financing.
You'll know exactly
what you can afford by
securing pre-approval
from a lender, who will
.review your income, debt
and credit, and suggest
'the loan best suited to
your qualifications and
needs.
If you can put down a
bigger deposit, you may
qualify for a higher loan
amount and possibly a
better interest rate.
The lower the deposit
that your bank finds
-acceptable, you might pay


a higher interest rate
*.because the lender
assumes a greater risk as
compared to a higher
deposit if you are able to
- do so.
Think about ways to
raise the cash perhaps a
second job to help accu-
mulate some of the down
payment.
Think outside the box.
A second job could
involve a cottage indus-
try, for.instance.
With your financial
house in order, you're
ready to discuss your"
desires with a BREA real
estate professional and
begin your home search
in earnest.
Obviously, the profes-
sional is also there to help
you with advice and sug-
gestions-before you are
able to start your search.
Congratulations!

(Mike Lightbourn is pres-
ident of Coldwell Banker
Lightbourn Realty).


Campaign aims to ignite healthy



living shift for Bahamian people


THE LOVE Yourself and
Your Health campaign will
continue for its second year
- renewing a commitment to
"encourage, empower, and
ignite" a cultural shift in
Bahamian people towards
healthy living.
In addition to giveaways,
demos and recipes, music,
and discounts on health ser-
vices and veggie food,
organizers have also added a
Green Smoothie Challenge
which will afford partici-
pants an opportunity to win
a three-month healthy liv-
ing assistance package for
2011.
The Love Yourself Well-
ness Package will include a
health assessment, one meal
per day, green smoothies,
natural health and beauty
products and a host of
health services such as, mas-
sage therapy, physical train-
ing, acupuncture, and chiro-
practic.


CAMPAIGN: NIB Director
Algernon Cargil
The campaign hosted by
Seedlings' Place,
H.O.M.E.GROWN and
Raw On Da Porch will
continue until April and
include numerous education


and awareness initiatives
such as free health forums,
cooking classes, and a fun
run walk.
After a successful first
year, which highlighted the
efforts of Chrissy Love, host
of the ZNS call-in show
Immediate Response, orga-
nizers have decided to make
it an annual awareness cam-
paign. In keeping with their
own national healthy
lifestyle initiatives, the
National Insurance Board is
one of many groups part-
nering in this campaign.
NIB Director Algernon
Cargill explained the cam-
paign will be utilised as part
of the national prescription
drug plan initiative where
prescription drug medica-
tion is provided to treat
chronic diseases and also
as part of their healthy peo-
ple component program -
where they provide funding
to groups who focus on


maintaining health and
health awareness.
Mr Cargill said: "We
recognize that if we help
Bahamians to manage their
health in terms of pro-
grammes like Love Your
Heath that it could perhaps
reduce their dependence or
reduce their contraction
rather of a chronic ailment.
"With this campaign what
we want to do is prevent the
contraction of any chronic
ailment through health
awareness and living a
healthier lifestyle that's
why we saw this as a great
opportunity to provide our
support because the more
people that do not contract a
chronic ailment the more
success we have in helping
Bahamians to manage their
overall health."
The campaign launch will
be held at 2pm at Ardastra
Gardens on Sunday, Janu-
ary 9.


Chavez, Clinton shake hands, chat amid tensions


CARACAS, Venezuela


PRESIDENT Hugo Chavez and
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton shook hands and chatted
briefly Saturday in a rare cordial
encounter amid a diplomatic dispute
that has left Venezuela and the United
States without ambassadors in each
other's capitals, according to Associ-
ated Press.
The handshake came as leaders were
milling about at the inauguration of
new Brazilian President Dilma Rouss-
eff. It was unclear what Chavez and
Clinton discussed.
Chavez later described the interac-
tion as a pleasant one, though he did
not give much detail.


"We greeted each other," he told
reporters at the Brasilia airport. "She
had a very spontaneous smile., and I
greeted her with the same effusive-
ness."
In the past week, their governments
have shown firmly entrenched stanices
as the United States revoked the
Venezuelan ambassador's visa in
response to Chavez's refusal to accept
the chosen U.S. envoy.
"They thought we were going to
back down. Anything negative that
happens will be the responsibility of
the United States," veteran Venezue-
lan diplomat Roy Chaderton told the
Caracas-based television channel
Telesur on Thursday. Chaderton, a
close Chavez ally and former foreign


minister, said the Venezuelan govern-
ment was considering its next steps.
Chavez has skipped opportunities to
respond during the past few days, say-
ing nothing about the U.S. govern-
ment's decision to revoke the visa of
Ambassador Bemardo Alvarez. Pres-
ident Barack Obama's administration
took that step in response to Chavez's
rejection of Larry Palmer, who has
been awaiting Senate confirmation.
It was unclear what concrete effects
those actions could have on relations,
or to what extent the encounter
between Chavez and Clinton could
help ease the tensions.
Clinton did not respond to questions
as she walked into a cocktail reception
for Rousseff.

Cuba's tobacco ..


company su


US


shop over name


PLYMOUTH, Michigan
A CIGAR lounge in sub-
urban Detroit is decorated
with paintings and photos of
famous people with a sto-
gie: John F. Kennedy, Win-
ston Churchill, even the
1950s Cuban revolutionary
Che Guevara, according to
Associated Press.
"We have only one thing
in common," said owner
Ismail Houmani, a U.S. war
veteran, pointing at a cigar
in the fingers of Guevara, a
Marxist rebel.
Cuba, however, believes
the shop has too much com-
mon with its own famous
cigar business. Cuba's gov-
ernment-owned tobacco
company is suing Houmani
in federal court in Detroit,
claiming the name of his
four shops, La Casa De La
Habana, is illegal because
it's too similar to its own
franchised shops, known
around the world as La Casa
del Habano.
Cuba, of course, can't do
business in America because
of a nearly 50-year-old trade
embargo imposed after
Fidel Castro, with Guevara's
help, turned the Caribbean
island into a socialist state.
Nonetheless, Cubatabaco
claims it still has a right to
protect its U.S. trademark
even if it can't export prized
Cuban cigars to U.S. shores.
"I love cases like this;"
U.S. District Judge Stephen
Murphy III told both sides
last year. "I find it to be
extremely interesting and
challenging."
Houmani's lawyer, Brad
Smith, wonders why Cuba
would care about a Michi-
gan cigar lounge. "Small
potatoes," he said in an
interview.
Cubatabaco's lawyer,
David Goldstein of New
York, said in court that a
trademark must be protect-
ed or "what I have is a
worthless piece of paper."
In Plymouth, a suburb
west of Detroit, La Casa De
La Habana has been open.
about a decade. A climate-
controlled humidor displays
,dozens of cigars, some cost-
ing $38 each, from Hon-
dura.s, the Dominican
Republic and Nicaragua.
There is walk-in business,

espresso bar. In downtown
Detroit, Houmani runs a
7,000-square-foot (650-
square meter) location offer-
ing martinis, live music and
local handmade cigars
stuffed with imported tobac-
co.
"Over a cigar, you can
meet some interesting peo-
ple doctors, lawyers,
judges, movie actors. They
want to sit down and relax,"
said Houmani, 42, who
immigrated to Toledo, Ohio,
from Lebanon when he was
18. "I wanted to create
something that's really
unique."
He said he was thinking
about Cuba's reputation for
Latin jazz, rum and cigars
when he chose the name La
Casa De La Habana, which
means "The House of
Havana" in Spanish.
Houmani notes that
"Habano," the word used in
the name of Cuban shops,
refers to a Havana cigar.
"I'm not selling or adver-
tising Cuban cigars," he said.
International agreements
allow government-con-
trolled businesses like
Cuba's to register trade-
marks in the U.S., even
when dormant under an
economic embargo. Still,


Smith said the lawsuit
should be governed by a
simple rule: "You use it or
lose it."
A trademark expert at the
University of Michigan law
school believes Cubatabaco
has a strong case for
infringement.
"Cuba's got reason to
hope that it will beable to
enter the U.S. market with-
in the foreseeable future,"
Jessica Litman said.
"Its markis pretty valu-
able, and the potential for
confusion seems real."
The judge has urged each
side to settle the dispute out
of cpurt..
Houmani concedes he
may have to change the
name of his business,
although he would prefer to
keep "La Casa" in it. He has
much admiration for Cuba's
cigars, despite the lawsuit
and that country's tommu-
nist government.
"It's the best tobacco in
the world because of the
soil. It's God's gift to the
Cubans," said Houmani,
who has smoked Cuban cig-
ars during trips to the Mid-
dle East.
"As cigar makers, we
don't look at political affili-
ations."


Argentine thieves tunnel


into bank over New Year


EXTERIOR OF LA CASA'DE LA HABANA on Wednesday, Dec.-22, 2010 in Detroit. Cuba's government-
controlled tobacco company is suing the owner of cigar shops in the Detroit area, claiming his busi-
ness' hame is too similar to its own global franchise. Houmani owns four cigar lounges called La Casa
De La Habana, in Detroit, Plymouth, Mich., Ann Arbor, Mich., and Toledo, Ohio. Cubatabaco's stores
are named La Casa del Habano. Cuba can't do business in America because of a nearly 50-year-old
trade embargo. Nonetheless, Cubatabaco claims it still has a right to protect its U.S. trademark. (AP)

BUENOS AIRES,
Argentina


THIEVES dug a 100-foot-
long (30-meter-long) venti-
lated and lit tunnel from a
neighboring building into an
Argentine bank and emp-
tied the contents of up to
140 safety deposit boxes,
officials said Monday,
according to Associated
Press.
Authorities said three
thieves entered a Banco
Provincia branch in the
Buenos Aires district of Bel-
grano on New Year's Eve
'when it was closed and spent
the weekend opening and
emptying between 130 and
140 of the branch's 1,408
boxes. The robbery wasn't
discovered until the bank
opened Monday.
Bank executives didn't say
how much the thieves got
away with because clients
are not obliged to tell
authorities what was in their
safety deposit boxes.
The thieves rented a
building next .to the bank in
June and spent months dig-


going the tunnel, which
emerged in an area where
safety deposit boxes are
located, prosecutor Martin
Niklison said.
The tunnel had lights, ven-
tilation and reinforcement.
"It was a really impressive
job," Niklison said, adding
that officials had not ruled
out that the thieves had an
accomplice on the bank's
staff.
Anti-seismic alarms
sounded various times but
police couldn't get into the
bank to check out their
cause, the prosecutor said.
Hundreds of bank clients
gathered in front of the state
bank Monday to demand
their savings and blocked a
nearby street to protest the
slow pace at which authori-
ties were confirming v hose
boxes had been robbed.
"The message we want to
give (clients) is that we are
going to protect their inter-
ests after this incident," Ban-
co Provincia Vice President
Gustavo Marangoni told
channel C5N.
Many Argentines began


putting their savings in bank
safety deposit boxes instead
of bank accounts following
the country's 2001 financial
crisis, when many depositors
lost savings.

OBAMA TO INCREASE ENGAGEMENT WITH AFRICA
HONOLULU
PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA is quietly but strategically
stepping up his outreach to Africa, using this year to increase his
engagement witlh a continent that is personally meaningful to him
and important to U.S. interests, according to Associated Press.
Expectations in Africa spiked after the election of an American
president with a Kenyan father. But midway through his term,
Obama's agenda for Africa has taken a backseat to other foreign
policy goals, such as winding down the Iraq war, fighting the Tal-
iban in Afghanistan and resetting relations with Russia,
Obama aides believe those issues are now on more solid footing,
allowing the president to expand his international agenda. He will.
focus in Africa on good governance and supporting nations with
strong democratic institutions.
Obama delivered that message on his only trip to Africa since
taking office, an overnight stop in Ghana in 2009, where he was
mobbed by cheering crowds. In a blunt speech before the Ghana-
ian parliament, Obama said democracy is the key to Africa's long-
term development.

BRISBANE, Australia
A MILITARY flight rushed
Monday to, restock an Aus-
tralian city before it was cut off
by floodwaters that have turned
a huge swath of the Outback
into a lake, while police con-
firmed two more deaths in the
crisis, according to Associated
Press.
Drenching rain that started
before Christmas has flooded
an area the size of France and'
Germany combined in north-
eastern Queensland state.
Rivers are overflowing and at
least 22 towns and cities in the
farming region are inundated.
In the coastal city of Rock-
hampton, waters from the still-
swelling Fitzroy River closed
the airport and cut the main
highway to the state capital of
Brisbane. Scores of families
abandoned their homes for
relief centers on high ground.
By Monday night, floodwa-
ters had inundated the last
route into the city, Queensland
Premier Anna Bligh said.
"Rockhampton is now com-
pletely stranded a town of
75,000 people no airport, rail
or road," Bligh told Australian
Broadcasting Corp. radio.
Residents emptied super-
market shelves of food and bot-
tfled water in recent days as they
stocked up to reduce the need
to get around in waist-deep
waters.
Acting Defense Minister
Warren Snowdon said a C-130
military cargo plane would fly
to a town north of Rockhamp-
ton on Monday carrying food,
medical supplies and other
items that would then be
trucked to the stricken city.
Authorities have warned the
Fitzroy will continue rising until
late Tuesday or early Wednes-
day local time.
Mayor Brad Carter. has said


about 40 percent of the city
could be affected by the surging
waters, and residents could be
forced to wait at least two
weeks before returning home.
State authorities say about
200,000 people have been
affected by the floods, Aus-
- tralia's worst in a decade, and
Prime Minister Julia Gillard on
Monday extended emergency
relief to those affected, includ-
ing low-interest loans to farm-
ers to begin cleaning up and get
their businesses running again.
"This is a major natural dis-
aster, and recovery will take a
significant amount of time,"
Gillard said. The damage could
ultimately amount to hundreds
of millions of dollars, she told
reporters.
Three people have died in
the flooding' since Saturday,
though police in Queensland
state say seven .other people
have drowned separately
involving swollen rivers and
water accidents since tropical
deluges began in late'Novem-
ber.
Chief Superintendent Alis-
tair Dawson said the latest vic-
tim was a man who drowned
Monday when the car he was
traveling in was washed off a
flooded causeway in the town
of Aramac, in central Queens-
land.
Earlier Monday, police said
they had recovered the body of
a man who was last seen Satur-
day when his -small boat was
swamped by raging waters in a'
different part of the state.
The rains that started the
flooding have eased, and water
levels have been dropping in
some towns.
But officials said about 1,000
people were living in evacua-
tion centers across Queensland,
and it may be a month before
the floodwaters dry up com-
pletely.


Jerry Brown returns to

lead a troubled California
WASHINGTON
THE Obama administration said Monday it will allow 13 com-
panies to resume deepwater drilling without any additional envi-
ronmental scrutiny, just months after saying it would require
strict reviews for new drilling in the wake of the BP oil spill,
according to Associated Press.
The government said it was not breaking its promise to require
environmental reviews because the 13 companies which include
Chevron USA Inc. and Shell Offshore Inc. had already start-
ed drilling the wells without detailed environmental studies.
Drilling was suspended last year when the administration
imposed a months-long moratorium following the BP spill. The
ban was lifted in October, but drilling has not yet resumed in
waters deeper than 500 feet (152 meters) in the Gulf of Mexico.
U.S. officials said the 13 companies must comply with new
policies and rules before resuming activity at 16 Gulf of Mexico
wells. All but three are exploratory wells the same type BP was
drilling when the blowout of the Deepwater Horizon rig occurred.
The April 20 explosion killed 11 workers and set off the worst off-
shore oil spill in U.S. history.
"For those companies that were in the midst of operations at
the time of the deepwater suspensions (last spring), today's noti-
fication is a significant step toward resuming their permitted
activity," said Michael Bromwich, director of the Bureau of
Ocean Energy Management, Regulation and Enforcement.
The decision is a victory for the drilling companies, which in the
past had routinely won broad waivers from rules requiring
detailed environmental studies. After the BP disaster, the Oba-
ma administration pledged it would require companies to com-
plete environmental reviews before being allowed to drill for
oil.
The administration has been under heavy pressure from the oil
industry, Gulf state leaders and congressional Republicans to
speed up drilling in the Gulf of Mexico, which has come to a near
halt since the moratorium on deepwater drilling was imposed last
spring.
The delay is hurting big oil companies such as Chevron Corp.
and Royal Dutch Shell PLC, which have billions of dollars in
investments tied up in Gulf projects that are on hold. Smaller
operators such as ATP Oil & Gas Corp., Murphy Exploration &
Production Co.-USA, and. Noble Energy Inc., also have been
affected.
A federal report said the moratorium probably caused a tem-
porary loss of 8,000 to 12,000 jobs in the Gulf region.

Graham, Thompson & Co and managing partner
demand US courts 'get a grip' on case involving
alleged $14m Bahamas-based bank account
By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
Attorneys acting for a top Bahamian law firm and its
managing partner have effectively demanded that the Amer-
ican courts 'get a grip' on a case they have been embroiled
in, accusing lawyers for a woman claiming ownership of a $14
million bank account of using the judicial system "as a soap-
box to make scurrilous personal attacks" against them.
US attorneys acting for Graham, Thompson & Co have
attacked rival counsel for Tonya Day, an American woman
claiming ownership of an alleged $14 million account at
Bahamas-based Corner Bank (Overseas), for accusing the
Bahamian law firm's managing partner of "providing false
information",
The dispute revolves around whether Graham, Thompson
& Co and its managing partner, Judith Whitehead, were cor-
rectly served by agents acting on Day's behalf. The Bahami-
an law firm is alleging that both service attempts were defec-
tive, yet Day's attorneys are alleging that this is countered by

Christmas, and on top of that some of
them were not conforming with compa-
ny rules," said Mr Lightbourne yesterday.
Mr Lightbourne said he took on the
workers at the Gladstone Road store
despite "there being no place for them in
the beginning" as a way of helping them
during the Christmas period.
However, the food retailer said he
could not keep the workers on and
"maintain (his) margins", so he decided
to let them go.


"There comes a time when you've got
to put the brakes on," he told Tribune
Business.
Mr Lightbourne said plans he revealed
to Tribune Business in November to
expand Phil's Food Services, which has
made its name in the food retail industry
through its "$99 package deals" and loss
leaders, which have drawn in customers
in droves, remain in place.
"There's no change to Phil's Food Ser-
vices. It's still here for the people," said
Mr Lightbourne.
In November, the food boss said he
would spend $2.5 million, starting this


month, on an expansion which would
necessitate the hiring of an estimated 50
new employees. .
He also hit back at claims at that time
that he has been able to keep his prices
artificially low through an alleged asso-
ciation with FML Group of Companies
chief executive, Craig Flowers, or by Cus-
toms Duty or Stamp Tax Evasion.
Describing those claims as false, Mr

Bahamasair restructure


Bahamas 'at bottom end of scale'

over broadcaster support

FROM page 1B

with larger populations typically had more money available to
finance PSB-style operations, URCA said that even on a per capi-
ta basis, "the level of public support for PSB in the Bahamas is low
by international standards.
"The grant received by ZNS in 2009-2010 was equivalent to
around $28 per person. This puts ZNS at the low end of per-capi-
ta funding in comparison with the 18 countries examined in a
study conducted for CBC in Canada, among a tranche of countries
that spend around $15-$30 per head."
According to URCA, numerous European countries spent
around $80-$110 per capital on PSB, while a middle tranche of
nations spent $40-$60 per head.
"The reduced spend on ZNS in 2010-2011, of $14 per person,
puts the Bahamas at the bottom end of the scale, ahead of only the
US, which is an outlier, as the market is sufficiently large for the pri-
vate sector networks to provide a range of high-quality PSB-like
programming," URCA said.
Just how dependent ZNS is on taxpayer support was further
revealed by URCA's consultation, which noted that just $6.2 mil-
lion, or 44 per cent, of ZNS's $14.7 million total income for the
2009-2010 financial year came from commercial revenues.
Of these, the most significant revenue stream, not surprisingly,
was advertising and sponsorship, which generated $5 million or 35
per cent of the broadcaster's total income for the year. The only
other major revenue source, apart from the $8.5 million govern-
ment/taxpayer subsidy, which accounted for 56 per cent of ZNS's
total income, was the $1 million (7 per cent) generated from sell-
ing airtime to external programme makers.

Mixed
URCA said its focus group research revealed mixed views about
the desired level of PSB financing in the Bahamas, with Bahami-
ans realising that any increase in support for ZNS would require
either increased taxation or cuts in public services elsewhere.
"Of those who supported the provision of a wider range of
Bahamian programming, a few said they would be prepared to pay
more (through taxation) for better programming," URCA said.
"Conversely, other people emphasised the challenges they
already faced in meeting their bills in the current economic con-
ditions, and were opposed to any increases in taxation to support
higher public spending on ZNS."
Ultimately, URCA's recommendation for financing PSB in the
Bahamas came down full square on continuing government/tax-
payer support for ZNS, given the current low per capital support
and subsidy cuts that "will be challenging for ZNS' management to
implement".
"Ongoing public funding for ZNS is necessary .to help achieve the
desired levels of PSB provision and to ensure universal service,"
URCA suggested. "Within its own budgetary constraints, the
Government should seek to make available levels of public fund-
ing sufficient to enable ZNS to fulfil its PSB remit."
URCA also backed ZNS's calls that it receive government
financing to "undertake a one-off upgrade to its capital infra-
structure" that would enable it to install digital equipment, vastly
upgrading its picture quality.
This, the regulator added, would enable ZNS to match foreign
broadcasters on picture quality, draw viewers to Bahamian pro-
gramming, and lead to operational cost savings through digital
technology efficiency. However, the regulator urged that this be
counter-balanced, arguing: "At the same time, ZNS needs to work
harder to generate sufficient commercial revenues, and to achieve
efficiency savings."

The Government has "not made a
decision yet on the way forward" as it
relates to Bahamasair, Minister of Public
Works, who has responsibility for the
national carrier, told Tribune Business.
Neko Grant was responding to this
newspaper's inquiries as to whether the
Government had reached a position on
the restructuring of the airline, which its
executives touted earlier this year as key
to its viability going forward.

Given these figures, Mr
Wrinkle said the "potential
for a turnaround" for the
sector now exists next year,
primarily in-the form of
large-scale projects such as
Albany, the Lynden Pin-
dling International Airport,
Baha Mar and the Bahamas
Oil Refining Company
(BORCO) continuing to
move forward with devel-
opments already underway
or beginning new construc-
tion projects.
Not only will these benefit
those contractors and work-
ers immediately involved,
but also put them in the
position to do things which
will create work for others.


STEPHEN
WRINKLE


"If you take that cumula-
tive total and look at the
number of contractors and
workers that will start to get
employed, you will start to
see a couple of things hap-
pen.
Qualify

First, hopefully current
mortgages can be brought
up to date (arrears paid off),
that's the first thing we'll


want to happen, then hope-
fully we'll see a number of
people qualify for new home
loans and mortgages," said
Mr Wrinkle.
The BCA is hopeful that
there will be a "trickle down
effect" from large scale pro-
jects such as Baha-Mar that
will "benefit th entiree
industry"', as sub-oitractotis
are taken on by larger con-
tractors dealing directly with
the developers, and with the
apportioning of some of the
$450 million in contracts ear-
marked for Bahamian con-
tractors specifically to small
and medium-sized compa-
nies.
"We would think that
even if half of that goes to
small and medium compa-
nies, that will affect a
tremendously broad spec-
trum," said Mr Wrinkle.
In this regard, the BCA
will begin in earnest "over
the next 90 days" to put
many small and medium-
sized Bahamian contractors
through a pre-qualification
process that will stand them
in good stead to benefit
when contracts are offered
by Baha Mar, added the
BCA president.


Chamber refines 'campus' plans-


FROM page 1B

resources already in place.
In February, Robert Myers, head of the
Chamber's Labour and Training Committee,
told Tribune Business that the Chamber
was looking for a Crown Grant to move
ahead with the establishment of such a cam-
pus, which would "empower workers to
empower their companies".
Concerned about the absence of quality
labour being "the single most limiting fac-
tor" for 75 per cent of Bahamian firms, Mr
Myers said the campus was intended to have
classrooms geared towards multiple courses
in trades, such as landscaping, mechanics
and tile-laying. 'It would also act as a
"microwave incubator" for Bahamian entre-,
preneurs and their fledgling ideas.
But Chamber president, Khaalis Rolle,
suggested that the plans have not moved
forward significantly, as the organisation is
continuing to "refine" the project.
"I think one of the considerations in that
regard is the fact that we already have insti-
tutions that are already in that business, and
they have the infrastructure and capacity to
do it. We know what we want out of it, so
what it would mean is for them to tailor
their offering to be in a position to assist,"
Mr Rolle said.
"I think what we need to do in the short-
term is use those institutions and build on
that capacity, then determine whether or
not in the long term going it alone will make


sense." Mr Rolle said the Chamber remains
committed to the mission of "improving the
quality of individuals coming into our labour
markets".
Meanwhile, Mr Rolle said he expects a
recently-announced Inter-American Devel-
opment Bank (IDB) funded study on the
Bahamas Labour Market will allow the
country to get the clearer picture it needs to
"know where we are" in terms of what skills
exist in this country.
"We need to know where we are, and I
don't believe that quantitatively we can pin
point exactly where we are. We know there
is a recognisable skills gap and we're not
getting, in the numbers we need, the people
that we want, but we don't know, in terms of
numbers, the amount of quality individu-
als. That's the reality of doing business in the.
Bahamas."
-The 'Bahamas Labour Market Study'
was announced by the IDB on its website
last week, and Labour Minister, Dion
Foulkes, described the project as "absolute-
ly necessary", particularly given major pro-
jects coming on stream such as Baha Mar,
which will demand certain professional
expertise. "It will involve an in-depth study
of where there are voids in our labour mar-
ket which Bahamians can fill, and looking
futuristically it will help us to look at what
we need to do in the long-term in terms of
training in our educational institutions, so
that we can ensure there is greater benefit to
Bahamians in our economy," said Mr
Foulkes.

Facebook at $50 billion


BARBARA ORTUTAY,
AP Technology Writer
NEW YORK


An injection of cash that values Face-
book at $50 billion will help it delay going
public for at least another year, giving the
company breathing room to focus on long-
term ambition rather than short-term prof-
it.
The infusion $500 million from elite
investment house Goldman Sachs and a
Russian investor, according to a report by
The New York Times represents the
most emphatic endorsement yet of Face-
book's potential to make money in online
social networking.
It places the company at twice the value
of Internet giant Yahoo and about equal to
what well-established names such as Boeing
and Kraft Foods are worth on the open
market.
More important, it buys time for Face-
book to keep its books private and not
have to cater to the demands of the market.
And it gives 26-year-old founder Mark
Zuckerberg room to grow into his role as
the public face of a multinational company.
Zuckerberg is widely believed to be more
comfortable operating behind the scenes,
thinking about technology and business,
than engaging in public discourse, says
Standard & Poor's equity analyst Scott
Kessler, who follows large Internet com-
panies. "There is still some question
whether he has the persona to be a public
CEO and, if he doesn't, would he be willing
to cede control to someone who does,"
says Mark Heeson, president of the Nation-
al Venture Capital Association, a trade
group that represents firms that invest in
startups. "That is probably an issue that
Facebook's board has been discussing for
some time."
As it nears the seventh anniversary of
its founding in a Harvard dorm room, Face-
book is already slightly more mature than
Google was when it went public, in 2004. At
the time, investors placed Google's value at
about $24 billion.


VALUED AT $50 BILLION: Exterior of Facebook headquarters in Palo Alto, Calif., Monday, Jan.
3, 2011. Social networking behemoth Facebook has raised $500 million from Goldman
Sachs and a Russian investment firm in a deal that values the company at $50 billion, The New
York Times reported. Goldman invested $450 million and Digital Sky Technologies invested
$50 million, the newspaper reported Sunday in its online edition, citing people involved in the
transaction that it did not name.


By the time Google turned 7, in Sep-
tember 2005, its market value had bal-
looned to about $90 billion, and the com-
pany wound up with $6 billion in revenue
that year. Google, like Facebook, wanted to
stay private as long as possible to avoid
public scrutiny of its finances, investor com-
plaints about its strategy and potential man-
agement. distractions.
I The $50 billion is more than twice as
much as the market's valuation of Yahoo.
It's also worth more than eBay, but still
less than Amazon.com not to mention
Google, which now stands at nearly $200
billion. Facebook has grown quickly as a
business, even as it seeks to retain a startup
culture, valuing innovation, hiring the
smartest engineers from its neighbors and
gobbling up small tech companies.
It has swelled to more than 500 million
users, about half of whom log in on a given


day. Each month they share more than 30
billion links, notes, photos and other types
of content. Facebook "Like" buttons are
everywhere online. Facebook is free and
makes money from selling highly targeted
ads. Investors are increasingly convinced
it is destined to become a marketing mecca.
It has cemented its place as the king of
social media, much as Google did for online
search.
The New York Times reported the
investment over the weekend, citing
unnamed people involved with the deal.
Facebook and Goldman Sachs declined to
comment Monday. Russian investor Digital
Sky Technologies, which focuses on Inter-
net properties, already has a 10 percent
stake in Facebook, but the nod from Gold-
man Sachs is a sign of just how big the Palo
Alto, Calif.-based startup has become even
outside tech circles.


BofA settlement with Fannie and Freddie 'clears air'


PALLAVI GOGOI,
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK


Bank of America Corp.
reached a $2.8 billion settle-
ment with Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac over claims that
one of its businesses sold bad
mortgages. The payment is far
lower ,than analysts expected,
and removes some uncertainty.
tlhat'haishovered over the bank.
The settlement is the biggest
yet involving banks and the two
government-backed mortgage
giants, which continue to suf-
fer huge losses from the col-
lapse of the housing market.
Analysts and investors have
been waiting to see how hard a
line Fannie and Freddie would
take with big mortgage lenders
such as Citigroup Inc., JPMor-
gan Chase & Co. and Wells
Fargo & Co. Some estimates
ran as high as $10 billion for a
Bank of America settlement.
"The government gave Bank
of America a very attractive
deal," said Christopher Whalen,
managing director of Institu-
tional Risk Analytics.
Bank stocks rallied on the


news, with Bank of America up
more than 6 percent and Wells
Fargo up 2 percent. Other set-
tlements are likely soon.
The claims stem from mort-
gages sold to Fannie and Fred-
die by former mortgage giant
Countrywide Financial, which
Bank of America bought in
2008. The two government-
backed agencies buy mortgages
from lenders and re-sell them to
investors. They want banks to
buy back.mortgages that had
incorrect information about the
income and other qualifications
of borrowers. During the hous-
ing boom, lenders such as
Countrywide routinely gave
mortgages to people who ulti-
mately couldn't afford them.
This lit the fuse for the financial
meltdown in 2008. Most of the
mortgages that Fannie and
Freddie want to sell back to the
banks are in default.
By removing this as an issue,
Bank of America CEO Brian
Moynihan hopes investors will
buy his message of focusing on
customers and building its tra-
ditional banking business. But
Bank' of America has several
big challenges remaining. Last


fall, the bank was accused of
using faulty documents to fore-
close on thousands of home-
owners. All 50 state attorneys
general have launched investi-
gations into the foreclosure
practices of Bank of America
and other banks. Bank of
America also faces lawsuits
from other investors who are
trying to recoup losses from
mortgages they say contained
faulty information.
There are also questions
related to Monday's deal. The
settlement contained two parts:
Bank of America paid $1.3 bil-
lion in cash to Freddie Mac. In
turn, Freddie Mac won't force
Bank of America to buy back
the faulty mortgages. In the sec-
ond part, Bank of America paid
$1.5 billion to Fannie Mae. But
this only settled past claims.
Fannie Mae still owns a total
of $397 billion of mortgages
made by Bank of America.
Fannie can still ask Bank of
America to repurchase any
loans deemed faulty. That
could still cost Bank of Ameri-
ca as much as $5.5 billion,
according to estimates by Chris
Gamaitoni, vice president at


Compass Point Research.
Bank of America spokesman
Jerry Dubrowski said the bank
has set aside enough reserves
for such losses and dismissed
Compass Point's estimates as
"highly unlikely." As part of
the settlement, the bank antic-
ipated that its fourth-quarter
provision for losses will be $3
billion and that it will take a
charge, against earnings of
about $2 billion.
"The settlement clears the
air and puts the issue behind
for ,Bank of America," said
Bert Ely, president of bank
consultant Ely & Co.
It was the second settlement
in a week..The first involved
Ally Financial Inc., which
agreed to pay $462 million in
lieu of buying back faulty mort-
gages from Fannie Mae in the '
future.


first layoffs have begun in the communist government's pro-
gram to cut the jobs of 500,000 state workers.
Cuban state-run media quotes Salvador Valdes as saying
the initial layoffs are occurring in the sugar, agriculture, tourism,
health and construction sectors.
Cuban media, including Monday's edition of the weekly
Trabajadores, say Valdes made the comments during a meet-
ing with workers' representatives but don't specify when it
took place.

Here's how this month's changes to

NIB Benefit & Contribution Regulations

will impact You



Higher Insurable Wage Ceiling
* Contributions (for both the employer and the employee) in respect of the employee who "
makes more than $400 per week has increased. While the rate of contributions remains the
same, the new wage ceiling is $500 per week/$2,167 per month. For weekly paid persons,
the first salary deduction at the higher rate will be for the pay period in which January 3 falls.

* Contributions for self-employed persons who make more than $1,733 per month have in-
creased. The new ceiling is $2,167 per month, with the first contribution payment on the
higher rate due at the end of January.

Contribution Rate Increase for Some Self-Employed Persons; Industrial Benefit
Coverage for All
* The contribution rate for all categories of self-employed persons is now 8.8%; all Self-em-
ployed persons are now covered for Industrial benefits.

Sickness Benefit
* In order to qualify for Sickness Benefit, a claimant must be employed at the time of the onset
of the illness for which they are claiming the benefit. A Form Med-4 must be completed by
the employer as support for the claim.

Additional Benefit for some Widow/Widowers
* Widows and widowers who qualify or previously qualified for Retirement or Invalidity Benefit
andLSurvivors Benefit simultaneously, may now qualify for one and a portion of the other,
respectively. Such persons would have been limited under the previous rules to receiving
only one benefit the higher of the two. Applications for the additional benefit may be sub-
mitted beginning this month.

More Stringent Contribution Conditions for Retirement Benefit
* To qualify for Retirement Benefit, claimants must have paid at least 500 weeks of contribu-
tions (approximately 10 years). If a claimant is 65 years or older and has paid less than 500

Associated Press.
MADISON, Wis.
Republican Gov. Scott
Walker began his-term Mon-
day promising to "right-size"
state government and make
tough but compassionate
decisions to balance a $3 bil-
lion budget shortfall.
Walker, 43, was swept into
office with new Republican
majorities in both the Senate
and Assembly after the reces-
sion led to the loss of 180,000
jobs ,since 2008. He replaces
Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle,
who decided not to see a third
term amid his lowest approval
ratings ever. Walker has
promised to create 250,000
jobs in the next four years and
balance the budget without
tax increases.
"Wisconsin is open for busi-
ness," he said in a 20-minute,
inauguration address deliv-
ered to a packed Capitol
Rotunda. "We will work-tire-
lessly to- restore economic
growth and vibrancy to our
state."
. Walker asked the Repub-
licans who now control- the
state Legislature to start work
immediately on proposals he
said would improve the state's
economy and help him fulfill
his job-creation promise.
Although specific proposals
haven't yet been released, his
.plans include cutting taxes on

forming the Commerce
Department into a public-pri-

"Our message is simple.
Act swiftly. Act decisively.
And pass our jobs plan by the
end of February," Walker
said. "Let us get' Wisconsin
working again."
Wisconsin Manufacturers
and. Commerce, the state's
largest business group, called
on lawmakers from both par-
ties to work quickly to
approve Walker's agenda.

Solid
"Walker's-plan is solid, and
it sends the signal to the
nation that Wisconsin is open
for business," said James A.
Buchen, the group's lobbyist.
' Walker provided no new
details Monday on how he
plans to balance the budget,
but he made it clear that a tax
increase wouldn't be involved
because he said,that would
,impair economic growth.
He hasn't ruled out raising
user fees or requiring drivers
to pay tolls if they use special
lanes on the interstate
designed for buses and car-
poolers. He's also expected

"to be a man" and come to
Milwaukee to explain to him

said, "you're throwing away

sage to Walker that she's
watching how many jobs lie
creates.
"We're promised good jobs
- by Mr. Walker and we expect
good jobs," she said. "We're
going to hold him account-
able."
The state Democratic Party
will enlist the help of 15,000
volunteers, working primarily
through the Internet and
social media, to hold Walker

said.

Stocks start 2011





with a huge lift


(AP Photo/Richard Drewy)
EYES UP: Specialist Michael Pistillo, left, and traders work on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange Tuesday, May 25, 2010.


DAVID K. RANDALL,
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK
Stocks started 2011 with a
big lift on Monday, and that
could be a promising,sign for
the rest of the year.
Investors call it the "Janu-
ary barometer." According to
the Stock Trader's Almanac,
a gain in the Standard and
Poor's 500 stock index over.
the first five days of January
has led to annual gains nearly
90 percent of the time.
"All of the forecasts come
out of Wall Street, and those
expectations for the year give
January a nice indicative
effect of what the year will
look like," said Jeffery Hirsch,
the editor of the Stock
Trader's Almanac.
Signs that the economy is
improving pushed stock
indexes higher on the first
trading day of the year. Man-
ufacturing activity and con-
struction spending both rose
more than analysts were pre-
dicting.
The Institute of Supply
Management's index of man-
ufacturing activity rose in
December for the 17th
straight month. Separately,
the Commerce Department
said construction spending
rose 0.4 percent in Novem-
ber.
The Dow Jones industrial
average rose 93.24 points, or
0.8 percent, to cl-ose at
11,670.75, its highest close
since Aug. 28,2008. The index
had been up as many as 134
points e -lier in the day.
The S&P 500 gained 14.23,
or 1.1 percent, to 1,271.87.
The Nasdaq rose,38.65, or 1.5
percent, to 2,691.52.
The gains were broad. All
10 company groups that make
up the S&P index rose. Finan-
cial companies led the way
with a 2.3 percent jump.
Treasury prices fell as the
better economic news weak-
ened demand for low-risk
investments. The yield on the
10-year Treasury note, which
rises as its price falls, moved
up to 3.34 percent from 3.29
percent late Friday.
Bank of America Corp.
shot up 6.4 percent to $14.19
after the bank settled a dis-
pute with Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac over soured
mortgage investments. That
,was the best performance
among the 30 stocks that
make up the Dow index. Intel
Corp. had the largest fall, los-
ing 0.9 percent to $20.85.
. Small companies, which are
considered riskier invest-
ments, surged. The Russell
2000, which tracks the per-
formance of smaller stocks,
jumped 1.9 percent. That's
nearly twice as big as the gain
posted by the Dow, which
tracks large companies.
That, too, could be part of a
historical trend. In a pattern
known as the "January
effect," smaller companies
tend to do better early in the
year than large ones. Some of
that has to do with traders


buying smaller companies
early in the year after selling
stocks they lost money on in
December in order to reap
tax benefits, Hirsch said.
In corporate news, Gold-
man Sachs Group Inc. gained
2.9 percent to $173.05 after
the New York Times reported
that it bought a stake in Face-
book in a deal that valued the
social-networking company at
$50 billion. Facebook remains
a private company, though its
shares are traded on private
stock exchanges.
Stocks rose throughout
Europe earlier in the day after
a report showed that manu-
facturing in countries that use
the euro expanded faster than
analysts had forecast. The
Euro Stoxx 50 index rose 0.6
percent. Benchmark indexes
,in France and Belgium each.
rose more than 2 percent.
The dollar edged up 0.2
percent against an index of
six heavily traded currencies.
Stocks in the U.S. ended
mixed on Friday, the last day
of trading in 2010. For many
investors, 2010 turned out bet-
ter than expected. Every
major stock market index in
the U.S. increased by double
digits.
The S&P 500, the. market
measure used by most pro-


fessional investors, returned
15.1 percent after dividends.
Historically, the index has
returned an average of 10.01
percent a year, including div-
idends.
Stocks ended 2010 espe-,
cially strong..The S&P gained
20 percent over the last four


months of .the year, capped
by a 7 percent jump in
December.,
On Monday, rising stocks
outnumbered falling shares
three-to one on the New York
Stock Exchange. Consolidat-
ed volume was 4.4 billion
shares.

Oil prices start the new year at a 21-month high
NEW YORK
Oil prices rose past $92 a barrel on Monday to a 26-month high,
as the new year began with the prospect of still higher energy
prices to come.
Benchmark oil for February delivery rose as high as $92.66 a bar-
rel, $1.28 above Friday's settlement price, in trading on the New
York Mercantile Exchange.
It gave up most of those gains to settle 17 cents higher at $9.1.55
on Monday. The last time oil settled above $92 a barrel was on Oct.
3, 2008, when it reached $93.88.
Oil has been gaining ground on speculation that the global
economy will continue to grow.in 2011.
Many analysts expect the for oil to reach at least $100 a bar-
rel this year, which will mean higher prices not only for gasoline,
but for diesel and heating oil as well.
A $10-per-barrel increase in the price of oil will cost U.S. con-
sumers an additional $200 million a day for all energy,products,
Cameron Hanover energy analyst Peter Beutel said. That means
less money to spend on other things, like clothes and electronics.
Analysts think there may not be much to keep oil prices from
moving higher after a strong finish in 2010. "The biggest problem
with 2011 is that there are very few easily identifiable reasons
why oil prices might move lower for any extended period oth-
er than a renewed recession,"' Cameron Hanover said in a research
report. Most economists don't think that's likely.

Factory outlook bright after 17 months of growth


CHRISTOPHER S.
RUGABER,
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON

U.S. factories are cranking
.up production, anticipating
greater spending by con-
sumers and businesses in
2011. Tax cuts will give people
more money to buy cars, com-
puters and electronic goods,
and provide incentives for
businesses to invest in equip-
ment.
Manufacturing activity has
expanded in every month
since the recession ended a
year and a half ago. The big
difference now is that the
growth is being driven, by
higher sales and more confi-
dent consumers- not just
businesses rebuilding the
stockpiles that they slashed
during the recession.
Steady hiring is likely to fol-
low. Economists caution that
it will only be enough to chip
away at the 9.8 percent unem-
ployment rate this year. Still,
they expect it will give the
economy a shot of momen-
tum, putting more money into
people's pockets and encour-
aging them to spend more


freely. And that will lead to
more hiring in other areas of
the economy.
"You're in a situation
where a virtuous cycle is
beginning to materialize," said
Eric Green, chief economist
at TD Securities.
The latest sign came Mon-
day when the Institute for
Supply Management said the
manufacturing sector expand-
ed for the 17th straight month
in December. The trade
group of purchasing managers
said its index of manufactur-
ing business activity rose to
57 last month, a seven-month
high. Any reading over 50
indicates growth. That is well
above the recession's low of
32.5, hit in December 2008.
But it's below the reading of
60.4 in April, the highest lev-
el since June 2004.
New orders rose to the
highest level since May and
production jumped, accord-
ing to the report. The ISM
surveys purchasing managers
at about 350 companies
around the country to com-
pile the index.
A separate report Monday
showed that construction
spending rose in November
for the third straight month.

ASSEMBLY LINE: Line workers assemble a 2011 Dodge Avenger at
the Chrysler Sterling Heights Assembly plant in Sterling Heights,
Mich., Monday, Dec. 6, 2010. The Avenger is one of two revamped
cars that are critical to Chrysler's future.


Builders began work on more
homes and the government
boosted its investment in con-
struction projects to lift
spending to $810.2 billion, the
Commerce Department said.
Still, that's only 2.3 percent
above August's figure, which
was the lowest level in a
decade.
Better news on the econo-
my gave stocks a lift on the
first day of trading in the new
year. The Dow Jones indus-


trial average closed up more
than 93 points,
Companies are sitting on
nearly $2 trillion in cash.
Many Ire expected to use
some of that money to keep.
upgrading their plants and
computer, systems. Business
investment in new equipment
was a steady source of eco-
nomic growth last year.
The tax package signed by
President Barack Obama last
month should encourage


greater business investment,
said Daniel Meckstroth, chief
economist at Manufacturers'
Alliance/MAPI. It includes a
provision that will allow com-
panies to write-off the entire
cost of big-ticket purchases.
Meckstroth estimates that
manufacturing output will
increase by 4 percent in 2011.
While that's below last year's
pace of 6 percent growth,
much of 2010's gain was sim-
ply due to companies restock-
ing their warehouses and
store shelves. Consumer
spending is also rising at a
healthy clip. Holiday shop-
pers. spent at the fastest pace
since 2006, according to pri-
vate-sector reports. And most
Americans will see their take-
home pay increase in 2011
because of a cut in payroll
taxes. Manufacturers are also
benefiting from stronger
demand overseas, particular-
ly in large developing coun-
tries. China, Brazil and India
are among those nations
recovering at a faster pace
than developed regions, such
as Europe and Japan.
A survey of Chinese manu-
facturers last week showed
that the nation's boom lost a
bit of momentum last month.


The state-affiliated Chin
Federation of Logistics an
Purchasing said that its index
dipped in November, the first
decline in five months. Still;
the number indicates China'
factories are increasing out
put. Chinese authorities ar
struggling to keep prices i
check by raising interest rates,
It increased a key rate for th
second time in three month
on Dec. 25. China's inflation
surged to 5.1 percent i
November, the highest i
more than two years.
As part of its efforts to rei
in higher prices, China ma
let its currency, the yuan, rise
against the dollar this year
That would lower the price ot
imports, and would make U.S.
exports cheaper in China,'
potentially boosting sales.
In the U.S., export orders"
are still growing, the ISM said,I
but at a slower pace. I
Exports should grow faster
than imports in the U.S. this
year. That's another switchM
from 2010, economists said
.when rising imports were
drag on the U.S. economy.
This year, the faster growthI
of exports should benefit
manufacturing and the broad
er economy..,

A second chance at life


- thanks to the Heart Foundation


By JEFFARAH GIBSON
Tribune Features Writer


UNTIL hearing her story, one
will not understand where for-
mer Miss Bahamas and Miss
Commonwealth Bahamas
Ava Burke Thompson's passion for the Heart
Foundation comes from.
She has always saluted the Heait Founda-
tion for what they have done over the years.
She believes if it wasn't for the Heart Foun-
dation, she would not be given a second
chance at life and living.
. It was little symptoms of a constant cold
and occasional fainting spells that led to the
discovery of a heart defect. And after finding
out the seriousness of her heart condition-
Mrs Burke-Thompson who was eleven years
old at the time was referred to the heart foun-
dation
The Heart Foundation in turn arranged
for her to be flown to Miami to the National
Children's Cardiac Hospital, who suggested
immediate surgery, because of the hole found
in her heart. This surgery was delayed for two
weeks because of a heavy cold. After recov-
ering, Ava returned to Miami, and underwent
several treatments before the actual surgery,
which was performed at Jackson Memorial
Hospital by Dr James R Jude, who was a
professor of cardiovascular surgery, at the
University of Miami School of Medicine. For-
tunately the operation was successful.
Without assistance from The Sir Victor Sas-


PROUD MOTHER: Ava Burke Thompson

son Heart Foundation, a non-profit organi-
sation, whose goal is to help to repair the
hearts of others, primarily children in The
Bahamas, Mrs Burke-Thompson's surgery
would have not been possible.
"It is often said: 'you only have one chance
at life.' However, I am proof that this is not so,
because as a child I was given a second chance,
through The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas)
Heart Foundation; they have afforded many
children the opportunity to dispel this state-
ment as a result of their generous donations of


millions of dollars over the years," she said.
"Prior to detecting my heart ailment many
years ago, attending a full day of school was
highly unlikely.
"Upon discovering.the seriousness of my
heart disease, it was estimated that I would live
a mere two more years without the impending
surgery. Doctors also felt that once the
surgery was performed, I would never be able
to give birth. Today, I am a proud mother of
three fantastic, healthy and beautiful children.
Therefore, I urge you to donate to The Sir
Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation
and give another child a chance of having a full
life, like I was given. No matter how little, I
assure you, it will go a long way in saving a
child's life and you'll be glad you did," Mrs
Burke-Thomspon explained.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of
The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas) Heart
Foundation.
It was established by Lady Evelyn Sassoon
as a living tribute to her husband Sir Victor
Sassoon.
Recognising the lack of a local heart fund,
and the lack of access to advances in heart
care, she used funds donated in her husband's
memory to establish The Heart Foundation.
The establishment of The Heart Foundation
and Dr Maud Stevenson's investigations into
heart problems among Bahamian children in
1962 enabled her to attract Dr Francisco A
Hernandez, the then Clinical Director of Med-
icine at The National Children's Cardiac Hos-
pital in Miami.
Heart clinics were held bi-annually and in


cases where services were not available local-
ly, children, like Ava Burke, received care in
Miami.
Since then, there have been many advances
and'developments in heart care and repair in
The Bahamas, particularly for children. To
date The Heart Foundation has helped over
4,000 patients.
However, as it has been since its inception,
The Victor Sassoon Bahamas Heart Founda-
tion remains the only source of assistance for
children who do not have medical insurance or
sufficient medical insurance coverage.
In order to raise funds to meet the demands
on the trust assets, The Heart Foundation
embraces donations and the support of the
general public. Whilst various fund-raising
activities occur, the major fund raiser remains
the annual Heart Ball.
Under the theme "Saving little hearts for 50
years, one beat at time", the Heart Ball Com-
mittee will host the 47th Annual Heart Ball.
The Annual Heart Ball will be held, Saturday,
February 19, at Sheraton Nassau Beach
Resort.
One of the highlights of the Heart Ball is the
presentation of "The Golden Heart Award",
which has since been renamed "The Lady
Sassoon Golden Heart Award", in honour of
Lady Evelyn Sassoon. The deadline for nom-
inations for this award is January 14.
Over 97 cents, of every dollar raised, goes
directly to the aid of the children.
For information on ticket purchases or
donations please contact the Heart Founda-
tion at telephone number 327-0806.

[BODY


THE TRIBUNE


A popular New Year's resolution
is the desire to lose weight.
While many are anxious to get
started, it is important that you
are fitted with the correct exer-
cising footwear for the physical activity recom-
mended in your weight loss program.
In an article cited in the Chicago Tribune, foot
and ankle surgeons predicted an increase in foot
pain during the month of January as people try to
keep fitness resolutions. It was further suggested
that the most common problems for those who go
from couch potato to high intensity work-outs are
sore Achilles tendons, heel pain and pinched
nerves.

Foot structure

Let us reflect on the make-up of the foot, which
is a complex structure composed of bones, muscles,
ligaments, fascial structures, nerves, and blood ves-
sels. The foot must support the entire weight of the
body during walking and standing. During running
and jumping, the forces on the foot can be several
times greater than the weight of the body.

The human foot is truly a miracle of design, with
the capacity to withstand the wear and tear of thou-
sands of steps every day throughout life. Given the
change in surfaces over the past 100 years, it is
essential that we realise how important it is to get
the appropriate footwear to support the foot and


In terms of our fitness program, it is suggested
that you ease into exercise. Alternating a hard
workout one day with an easy workout the next
day may help avoid some of the injuries associated
with a rigid workout.

Appropriate equipment

Footwear today is designed for specific activities,
having the support in the area where pressure may
be present, given that particular activity. For exam-
ple, if you are walking for fitness, then you should
purchase a 'walker-sneaker' because the pressures
on the foot would be very different than if you
were running. Similarly, many walkers complain of
-knee pains, which may be because they are using
footwear designed for other activities.

Many sports related injuries occur as a result of
extrinsic factors such as footwear and surfaces.
Sprains, heel pain, interdigital neuroma and stress
fractures of the foot are common results that ath-
letes suffer in relation to these factors. As a result,
revolutionary footwear has been introduced to
combat many problems related to the foot.
For example, the 'Chung Shi' line of footwear
has been scientifically designed as dynamic work-
out tools. Their unique 'rocker/roller sole' design
benefits the user by:


Avoid foot pain, seek professional help to assist
you with the correct footwear and support (orthot-
ic) to not only support your body and foot type but
to adequately off load the pressure presented by
the underlying terrain. Runners, who want to con-
tinue running for many more years, need to ensure
that there is enough support between your foot and
the flat and hard surfaces you run on. Depending
on the activity to which you are doing, you need to
seek the appropriate footwear and support for that
purpose. A professional in the field of footwear can
help you best with your selection.

well being of peo-
ple with disabili-
ties. Good oral health promotes
communication, good nutrition,
self-esteem and an enhanced qual-
ity of life. It can lead to a reduction
or elimination of pain and dis-
comfort. Poor oral health (bad
breath, overcrowded teeth or
unsightly decay) reduces a person's
ability to eat nutritious food,
affects self image and confidence
and causes significant pain.
A person with a disability might
not be able to communicate these
effects of poor mouth hygiene to a
caregiver and this in turn can cause
frustration and tantrums, possibly
resulting in self-harm.
The essential benefits, arising
from oral health cannot be under-
estimated.
Good oral health empowers
people with disabilities to face the
world with more confidence, pro-
moting their participation and con-
tribution.


People with disabilities have a
distinct mouth health profile.
Research has shown that people
with disabilities are more likely to
have oral health problems and
require. more treatment than the
rest of the population.
Children with disabilities, when
compared to children who do not
have disabilities, have 30 per cent
more untreated dental decay.
They also had more extractions
and less preventive work, such as
fissure sealants.
Adults with disabilities typically
have more missing teeth, need
more dental treatment and are 20
per cent more likely to have no
teeth at all, if they are over 55,
when compared with non-disabled
adults.
The mouth health of persons
with disabilities can be compro-
mised by general risk factors such
as tobacco use and poor dietary
practices and these habits need to
be monitored closely. Research
findings have pointed to possible
associations between chronic
mouth infections and diabetes in


this population (US Surgeon Gen-
eral's Report, 2000). The North-
ern Ireland consultation document
"An Oral Health Strategy for
Northern Ireland" (September
2004), includes a section on adults
with mental health difficulties. It
indicates that persons with dis-
abilities are at increased risk of
dental decay, gum disease and
mouth cancer due to poor oral
hygiene, a diet high in sugars,
prevalence of cigarette smoking
and the effects of medication.

Important

People with disabilities, who pre-
sent for oral health services, are
very important to their practition-
ers.
The practitioner endeavours to
provide quality service, to a person
who may have poor understand-
ing, uncontrolled movements, lim-
ited mouth opening and poor pos-
ture. The patient may also have
limited mobility, may experience
tiredness during treatment or may
have medical problems. Com-


only, people with disabilities may
require more specific supports and
re-orientation of practice and ser-
vice provision, in order to access
mainstream oral healthcare provi-
sion.
Critically, the issues go beyond
the basic issue of physical access to
treatment.
They include access to informa-
tion provision, communication and
attitudes. A lack of service knowl-
edge, anxious caregivers and neg-
ative oral health staff's attitudes
including a lack of empathy and
understanding are things to be
frowned upon.
Oral health needs to become
integrated into holistic health poli-
cies and be included into general
healthcare professional training.
Presently, oral health is, for the
most part, divorced from the gen-
eral health world.
Doctors do not always think
about the oral health implications
of medication they might prescribe
and dentists do not always request
doctors' co-management on cases,
often enough.


The comprehensive manage-
ment of the patient with disabilities
is dependent on the revitalisation
of the Doctor-Dentist team.
If you are a patient with one or
more disabilities, your mouth
health is equally as important as
someone who has no disability.
Please visit your dental health care
profession for the standard of care
you deserve.

How to make



and keep your



fitness New Year's



resolutions



By CRAIG F WALKINE



SR Certified Fitness
Trainer (CFT)


ON AVERAGE only
about 20 per cent of us keep
our New Year's resolutions,
which include our fitness
resolutions. Most of us do
well until sometime around
the end of February or ear-
ly March, then we sputter,
lose our enthusiasm and let
our resolutions die, only to
be buried with the resolu-
tions of years past.
Fitness. experts agree that
there are some pretty basic
strategies you need to fol-
low if you are to have suc-
cess with your New Year's
Resolutions. Do these and
you'll significantly increase
your chances of carrying
out your fitness- resolutions
throughout the year:
Choose a realistic and
achievable goal. Resolving
to lose 50 pounds with 30
days is probably not going
to happen. A more realis-
tic loss of 3 5 pounds per
week is probably a goal you
should aim for. When we
set unreasonable goals and
don't achieve them, disap-
pointment and discourage-
ment sets iln and our reso-
lutions start to fade.
*. Develop and write out a
plan. Achieving goals and
resolutions don't happen by
accident. You have to have
a personal plan on how you
will Achieve your fitness and
health goals. This will
include actions and strate-
gies you will take to make it
happen: eg I will exercise 3
- 4 times per week on Mon-
day, Wednesday, Friday
and Sunday. I will cut back
on white starches (bread,
pasta, potatoes etc.) and
sweets etc. Write it down
and you will increase your
chances of success.
Break your goals down
into manageable pieces. Set
smaller goals to achieve
throughout the year that
will help you-to reach the
big goal. For example, if
your goal is to be able to
complete 100 sit-up's in one


session, your smaller goals
could be completing 20 per
session, then build up to
your ultimate goal. Even if
you don't reach you ulti-
mate goal you would have
achieved significant
progress.
*Give it time: most of us
expect to lose weight and
get fit. within 2 weeks,
notwithstanding it took us
two years to put on the
extra weight. It takes about
6 8 weeks to see and feel
significant changes in your
body. Learn to relax and
keep working. The changes
you desire will come.
Don't be too hard on
yourself. If you slip up don't
give up. Remember that if
you overeat, miss a work-
out or are not dropping the
pounds like you expected
that doesn't mean trying to
reach your goal is a lost
cause. You are still healthi-
er and more fit than when
you started. Get back on
track and go for it. No time
is a good time to give up.
Don't go it alone!
Sometimes .you need the
help of a trained profes-
sional and the encourage-
ment of a group of like-
minded people to nudge
you along. When it comes
to fitness, research studies
have shown that assistance
from a fitness professional
along with working out
within a group greatly
improves people's success.
Reward yourself along
the way. Treat yourself to
something special once.
you've achieved a small
milestone. But, be careful
of your reward type. If


you've lost 5 pounds, don't
give yourself a piece of cake
as a reward. Instead, treat
yourself to something non-
food related, like a mas-
sage.

By YVETTE BETHEL

IT IS very interesting how people spend
time learning and mastering systems. First
they experience the process, exploring its
inherent strengths, understanding what the
system is designed to do. Then some people
go a little further, scouring the process for
the inevitable loopholes that were invisible
when the architects created the system.
For some, the reason behind mastering
the system is a goal of achieving profes-
sional effectiveness or personal actualisa-
tion. For others, the intent may be less hon-
ourable. Here are three ways employees
attempt to manipulate systems, finding short
cuts that impede accountability and pro-
ductivity:
1. Extra days: There are employees who
seem to disappear right after a public holi-
day. They wait patiently for the holiday to
S arrive or if they are not interested in waiting,
they obtain authorisation from a doctor for
sick days so they can abdicate their respon-
sibilities temporarily. For some manipula-
tors, this behaviour is beating the system.
However, they don't consider the impact of
unplanned absences on others who are left
to take on additional workload.

2. My best friend the manager: There are
employees who try to beat the system by
becoming friends with the manager. Their
motive is to carefully position themselves
so the manager will be lenient. The point of
befriending the manager is usually self
preservation but like any system, the sys-
tem will restore balance. This means the
work will have to be done and done properly
by someone else. There are managers who
bring about forced balance by letting some-
one else do the work or doing the work
themselves. Others fake the appearance of

balance until unavoidable situation

restored as a result of removal, term
or transfer of the person undermining

3. Christmas vacation: Some emp

to extend their vacations past Decem

tion in the upcoming year. Sometime

Davis said the Providence
College coach was following
the progress of his New Breed
team and was so impressed
with Brice's performance as
the most valuable player in
their two-point victory over
Macedonia Baptist in the
finals of the Deacon Eddie
Rahming tournament.
After watching his dreams
of playing basketball at a
higher level put on hold, Brice
was waiting for a call from the'
Royal Bahamas Police Force.
However, he got a new lease
on life when he was awarded
the scholarship.
Davis said he remembered
how he shared the news with
Brice that he jumped for joy,
packed his bags and is now in
Canada.

Davis, was a step in the right

THE Easton Foundation Youth
World Cup staged at the Interna-
tional Softball Federation's world
headquarters complex in Plant City,
Florida, nears its completion. Hdw-
ever, the Bahamas has been elimi-
nated.
The 16-and-under girls' fastpitch
tournament consists of 23 teams rep-
resenting eight different countries
and runs through January 5.
In their final contest, Puerto Rico
dominated the Bahamas, 21-0, to
advance to the following round
against Korea.
The Bahamas was eliminated from


the tournament and really was out of
this game quickly.
Puerto Rico struck for four runs in
the top of the first inning and then
doubled that amount in the second
before pouring it on with nine runs
in the third.
They had 20 hits in the three-
inning game (shortened due to the
run-ahead rule) and the Bahamas
had just one.
Four Puerto Rico players had
three hits each, including designated
hitter Dayanira Diaz, who drove in
and scored three runs.
The Bahamas went 0-4 in pool


play and were relegated to the losers
bracket in the following round.
In their first game, in a battle of
international teams who went head-
to-head, Puerto Rico downed the
Bahamas 15-0 in a game shortened
by the international run-ahead rule.
It was only 1-0 after the first
inning, but the winners got five more
runs in the top of the second and
nine in the top of the third while set-
ting down all nine Bahamas batters
in order seven by strikeout over
the game's three innings.
Six different players had two hits
each for Puerto Rico, including


Kiara Resto, who had three RBI.
In their second matchup, Manito-
ba 2, Canada posted a big 12-1 vic-
tory over the Bahamas. It was the
Bahamas taking a 1-0 lead in the
bottom of the first inning, but after
that it was all Manitoba.
The Canadians scored three times
in the second and six in the third,
taking advantage of a game total of
eight errors by the Bahamians.
Four different Manitoba players
had two hits each and pitcher Mia
Gautron had 12 strikeouts in five-
and-a-third innings to pick up the
win.


In game three Manitoba -1, Cana-
da won 11-3 over the Bahamas.
Manitoba got to work quickly, scor-
ing six times in the top of the first
inning when they sent 10 batters to
the plate.
An RBI triple in the bottom of
the first got the Bahamas on the
board, but the Canadians added two
more runs in their next at-bat, and
then sealed the deal when they
scored three times in the top of the
sixth.
Winning pitcher Sydney Loewen
struck out seven batters in six
innings.

William 'Knucklehead' Johnson, in show-
ing their support.
"She's a fine young lady and we wish
her the very best. We know that she will
continue to do very well," Dorsett stated.
"I know her achievements will encourage
the other athletes as our programme con-
tinues to move forward."
Many anticipated that Thomas would
have clinched the overall title, including his
mother, Pamela Thomas, who represented
her son, who was in Auburn with his wife
Crystal and their son, DeShawn, preparing
for the upcoming season.
"I think he had a great achievement.
He worked very hard this year," she stat-
ed. "I'm a bit disappointed that he didn't
win it, but someone has to win it."
Under the theme: "Celebrating Our
Youth in Athletics," the event honoured
the 'Golden Girls' Eldece Clarke,
Sevatheda Fynes-Coke, Chandra Sturrup,
Pauline Davis-Thompson and Debbie Fer-
guson-McKenzie for their 4 x 100 relay
gold medal performance at the 2000
Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia.
There was a replay of their stunning vic-
tory over the United States which was
shown on two giant screens. Fynes-Coke,
Sturrup, Davis-Thompson and Ferguson-
McKenzie were all present: While they
presented some of the awards; they also
received special crystal plaques from the
BAAA and a flag used during the victory
lap by Kevin 'Gun' Curry.
In other honours, Christine Amertil, the
Silver medallist at the: IAAE World:Indoor.
Championships, was named the Senior
Female Athlete of the Year.
Amertil also was presented with the

Bahamas Olympic Committee's vice pres-
idents after she moved up from fourth due
to a disqualification of one of the medal-
lists.

Williams won the Ronald Cartwright's'
Junior Female Field Athlete of the Year
and Lathone Minns got the Keith Parker
Junior Male Field Athlete of the Year.
"It feels good because it shows that hard
work does pay off," Williams said. "I
thought Carlene Johnson was going to get
it because of her gold medal at Carifta.
But I was very surprised that they gave it
to me."
The Angela Rolle Youth Female Ath-
lete of the Ydar was Danielle Gibson and
Daron Young took the Youth Male Ath-
lete of the Year.
"It feels good. All of the hard work and
the long training has finally paid off,'"said
Gibson, a 14-year-old 10th grader at SAC.
"I expected that I would win it because
of the things I achieved. But this only
means that I have to work harder this
year."
Gibson said she was shocked when she
heard Miller won the Athlete of the Year,
but she is hoping to use her achievement as
an inspiration for her as she continues with
her career.
Andre Colebrooke won the Sir Dur-
ward Knowles Family Island Athlete of
the Year and Angela Cherilus and Leonar-
do Forbes were the Female and Male
Cross Country Athletes of the Year. Ray
Hepburn was awarded the Roderick

Cobras win


title


By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net


THE C C Sweeting Cobras, one
of the three teams still undefeated
in the Government Secondary
Schools Sports Association (GSS-
SA), pulled off a big mid-season
victory as they triumphed past the
visiting Eight Mile Rock Bluejays.
In what could be a prelude to a
potential showdown in the post-
season of the prestigious Hugh
Campbell Basketball Classic, the
Cobras showed that they intend
to be a team to reckon with this
year as they pulled off an 82-77
decision over the Bluejays Friday
in the Providence Basketball Club
senior boys tournament, spon-
sored by Phil's Food Services, at
the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.
The game followed the third
place match-up between the other
two undefeated teams in the GSS-
SA with the highly favoured RM
Bailey Pacers holding off the tour-
nament hosts C I Gibson Rattlers
103-93.
Organiiser Kevin 'KJ' Johnson
said the tournament, which pro-
vided an avenue for the players
to stay sharp during the Christ-
mas break, was another success
and they are already looking for-
ward to this year's event.
"All of the top four teams
played extremely well," he said.
"RM Bailey, who has'a very good
team this year, managed to beat us
(C I Gibson) and CC Sweeting, a
very well coached team, beat
Eight Mile. Rock, one of the top
teams in the nation and a well
coached team as well. The better
team tonight, C C Sweeting, won,"
he said.
"As a committee, we will sit
down and evaluate all of the things
that we need to do to get better.
We want to make sure that bas-
ketball gets to the level that it
ought to be in this country."
Cobras 82, Bluejays 77
While they never led after
falling behind in the first quarter,
Eight Mile Rock put up a gallant
come-from-behind effort, but C C
Sweeting was just a little bit hun-
grier down the stretch.
Gabi Laurent, named the most
valuable player, came through
with nine points in the second
quarter as the Cobras rallied from
a 23-19 first quarter deficit to surge
ahead 44-40 at the half before he
added 11 in the third quarter as
they pushed their lead to 61-54.
Roosevelt Whylly also con-
tributed 26, while Patrick Dean
had nine and both Keiron Pratt
and Leon Saunders chipped in
with eight in the win for C C
Sweeting, who advanced to the
final with an 85-73 upset win over
R M Bailey.
"We know that Eight Mile
Rock is a well coached team and
they were going to be in the
game," said Cobras' coach Mario
Bowleg, who admitted that the
key was how well they played in
the third quarter.
"I told my guys that if we didn't
make a run in the third quarter,
we would have been in a dogfight.
They did that and we were able
to pull away. But in the fourth
quarter, Eight Mile Rock was able
to come back, but we were able
to hold them off."
Bowleg said he's confident that
the win will boost player morale
for his Cobras as they prepare for
the second half of the GSSSA sea-
son, where they are currently
undefeated at 6-0, and ultimately
another'run at the Hugh Camp-
bell title in the process.

THIRD PLACE: The RM Bailey Pacers, coached by Nigel Ingraham (1

Erwin Lewis, the best big man
in the tournament, showed his
strength as he mustered up a game
high .32 points with Justin Smith
adding 15, Ramon Davis 12 and
Steven Smith 10. But it wasn't
enough to keep them winning
after turning back CI Gibson 90-79
in the semifinal.
"C C Sweeting is a really good
team and they matched up really
well against us," said Bluejays'
coach Quinton 'Three Ounce'
Hall. "My boys played their hearts
out and that was all I expected
from them. It's a loss, but I can
feel good going back to Freeport
and coming back for the Hugh
Campbell Tournament."
Hall, who has recently been
named the junior boys national
coach and will join Bowleg as
assistants on the men's national
team, admitted that the officiat-


ing could have helped the
little.
"It's not about the refs
all about the players," he
may argue about it on t
lines, but it is what it is

Holyfield vs.


'Tank' set for January 22


By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter
rdorsett@tribunemedia.net

A LONG series of setbacks
appears to be nearing an end
for the Bahamas' leading pro-
fessional fighter as the long
awaited star-studded bout
against a boxing icon appears
to have finally reached a
solidified date.
After three postponements
and delays, the fight between
Sherman "Tank" Williams
and Evander Holyfield is now
scheduled to take place on
January 22 at the Greenbrier
Resort in White Sulphur
Springs, West Virginia.
The 12-round bout for the
World Boxing Federation's
heavyweight title was origi-
nally scheduled for Novem-
ber 5 in Detroit, Michigan.
However, setbacks have
marred the schedule since the
original announcement.
The fight promoter,
Olympia Entertainment, did
not specify a reason for can-
celing the fight other than to


EVANDER HOLYFIELD


say it was "due to unforeseen
circumstances."
Since its original date, the
fight has been postponed to
November 5, 12 and Decem-
ber 9, reportedly all related
to lagging ticket sales and the
lack of a television deal.
"Obviously, I'm very dis-
appointed because we already
had so many weeks of train-
ing, and the absolute worst
thing you can do as a fighter is
overtrain," Williams stated.
"We were peaking right


before November 5 and then
we heard they wanted to
make it to November 12, and
now that December 9 is out
of the window we have anoth-
er date, it is just a frustrating
situation.
"I am not happy with it at
all because this is boxing. This
isn't basketball. The mental
part of it is the most difficult
part. It's hard to get up, put in
the road work at 5:30am, get
punched around in sparring
and then do it continuously


only to have your fight
delayed time and time again."
A disappointed Williams
speculated on the reason for
the delay in the Holyfield
camp. "Well, it is boxing so
there is a lot of talk, and a lot
of rumors going around but
no concrete reason has been
given for the delay. I know
that he was looking beyond
me and looking forward to a
fight with one of the
Klitschko brothers.
"As November drew closer,
I think his camp realizes that
they signed up for a real fight
and Holyfield has his hands
full. They said they had some
issues in their training camp
and there was also some
issues with FoxSports.Net, the
television station that is sup-
posed to be hosting the fight,"
he said. "But what I heard
from good sources is that he
just started training for the
fight last week, so perhaps it
is just a matter of his camp
being ill-prepared and trying
to play mind games."
The 38-year-old Williams,


who came from humble
beginnings in Grand Bahama
where fighting at Hawksbill
High was his introduction to
the sport, is nine years
younger than his 47-year-old
legendary rival.
Williams told a gathering
of local sporting dignitaries
and political figures that he
intends to stop Holyfield in
the seventh round.
"For the delays to come
continuously have been a bit
disappointing. We have been
going hard at it in training
camp and actually when we
neared the time for the origi-
nal date in November, I was
almost peaking in prepara-
tion for a fight that was sup-
posed to be held in just a few
weeks," Williams said. "So I
was forced to extend my
training almost two months."
The 5'11" Williams has
compiled a 34-11 record with
19 knockouts. He is coming
off a loss on points to Manuel
Charr on October 10, 2009,
in Stadthalle, Rostock, Meck-
lenburg-Vorpommern, Ger-


many.
Prior to that, Williams was
riding a nine-win streak with
his last decision coming on
December 12, 2008, when he
won on points over Andrew
Greeley at the Bourbon
Street Station in Jacksonville,
Florida.
In Holyfield, Williams will
be facing a 6-2 1/2 American
who has a 43-10 record with
28 KOs. Holyfield, 47, will be
defending his WBF title that
he won with an eight round
TKO over Francois Botha at
the Thomas & Mack Center
in Las Vegas, Nevada, on
April 10.
Holyfield, the former
undisputed world champion,
has had victories over
Michael Dokes, Alex Stew-
art, James Buster Douglas,
George Foreman, Larry
Holmes, Riddick Bowe and
Mike Tyson.
"For me it is bigger than
this fight," Williams said. "I
am just using Holyfield for a
stepping stone to get to where
I want to be in my career."

My projections

for year 2011

By BRENT STUBBS STUBBS

IT'S only a matter of
hours before we pull down
the curtains on 2010 and
usher in 2011.
What a year it has been
for sports in the Bahamas.
We've seen the tremen-
dous achievements of our
athletes, coaches and offi-
cials both on the local and 'H
international scene that '6
one can only wonder if it
can get any better. OPINION
The end of the year is
always a time for us to
reflect on our past accomplishments and
look ahead to the future with great antici-
pation.
This is also a time for me to make some
projections on my outlook for sports in the
new year..
Here it goes: '"
Now that he has' gotten a date finalized
again, Sherman 'the Tank' Williams will pick
up his biggest victory in his career with a
decision over former world heavyweight
champion Evander 'the Real Deal' Holy-
field.
The January 22 victory will set the stage
for what will be an even more spectacular
year for other professional fighters such as
Meacher 'Pain' Major, Jermaine 'Choo
Choo' Mackey and Taureano 'Reno' John-
son as they benefit from the publicity.
Marathon Bahamas, set for January 16,
will provide the biggest boost for the local
scene as quite a number of other events,
including a Bahamas Ironman Triathlon, as
organizers take advantage of the tranquility
that the Bahamas provides.
The completion of the National Stadium
by the Chinese will transform the Queen
Elizabeth Sports Center into a venue that
willbring a number of sporting personalities,
including Usain Bolt, who will be used to
test the conditions of the track that will be
the envy of the entire region.
The new stadium will also help to boost
the success of the Bahamas' team at the 2011
Daegu IAAF World Championships in Ath-
letics as there will be at least four champions
crowned, including another version of the
"golden girls."
The Bahamas will advance out of the
American Zone III Davis Cup tie as the
.youthful team, led by Devin Mullings, will
prevail, while Mark Knowles will have a
banner year, getting back into the top five'
rankings in doubles.
For the first time in a long time, the
' .Bahamas Basketball Federation will finally
be able to lure the majority of the top pro-
fessional and collegiate players to play on the
men's and women's national teams.
In the process, the Bahamas will have one
of. its best showings ever at the Caribbean
Basketball. Championships, thanks in!part
to the efforts of the new coaching staff who.
were able to convince the players that things
will only get better for them in the future.
With a couple players knocking on the
door, look for at least one player to secure a
spot on the roster of a National Basketball
Association (NBA) team and for Devard
Darling to return to the National Football
League (NFL).
Team sports such as volleyball and soccer
will also have some success this year, while
our young golfers will be back for a better
showing when they head the Bahamas' team
at the Caribbean Amateur Golf Champi-
onships.
Arianna Vanderpool-Wallace's bronze
medal at the FINA World Short Course
Championships will provide the impetus for
at-Bahamas Swimming Federation to
receive a couple final spots in the FINA
World Championships as a couple more
swimmers qualify for the Olympic Games.
And finally, I predict that the Bahamas
will produce its best showing ever with the
largest team ever selected at the Pan Amer-
ican Games, which will be one of the biggest
highlights for 2011.
Sounds like a lofty agenda for the year.
But if we can achieve half of these pre-
dictions and pull off some of the other feats
that I haven't even mentioned, I will be quite
content with our sporting year. Happy new
year.

National Basketball Association HIGHLIGHTS





Gay scores 27, Grizzlies





rout the Lakers 104-85


FACE HIT: Lakers forward Lamar Odom, top, hits Memphis Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay in the
go after a rebound in the first half of Sunday's game-in Los Angeles.


By GREG BEACHAM
AP Sports Writer

LOS ANGELES (AP) -
Rudy Gay and the Memphis
Grizzlies didn't get overly
excited about beating the Los
Angeles Lakers so thorough-
ly that the Staples Center
crowd booed its two-time
champions off the court.
The Grizzlies were just
pleased they had seized their
second chance for a fresh start
to the new year.
Gay scored 27 points, Zach
Randolph added 21 points
.. and eight rebounds, and the
Grizzlies roared away in the
second half for a 104-85 vic-
tory over the lifeless Lakers
on Sunday night.
One day after a rough loss
at Utah, and four days after
losing to the NBA-worst
Sacramento Kings, the Griz-
zlies' blowout had their bench
standing in celebration for
much of the second half.
"Whenever you play good
basketball, things like this
happen," said Gay, who spent
most of the past three days
off in bed with a stomach
virus. "It's just like any other
team. Every other team in
this league is looking at them
like they're just another team
to beat. With all due respect
to them, they're a great team,
but I felt that we came out
'... here and played great bas-
ketball."
O.J. Mayo scored 15 points
S, for the Grizzlies, who made a
:' 19-4 run in the third quarter
.'S to'take a'17-point lead. Los
Angeles never threatened to
,. get back in it despite a 21-
.- point second half by Kobe
Bryant, and the Lakers were
face as they left wondering how the Griz-
zlies are just 15-19 after losing
(AP Photo) to Memphis twice in less than


five weeks.
"We feel like we can play
with anybody, and we should
have a better record than we
have," said point guard Mike
Conley, who had 12 points
and six assists. "We've laid
eggs here and there, but we're
working hard to become a
more consistent team."
Gay hit two 3-pointers,
repeatedly scored in transi-
tion and punctuated his night
with a steal and a dramatic
dunk with 6:40 to play. Ran-
dolph went 9 for 17 in the low
post to win his matchup with,
Pau Gasol, who had 10 points
and eight rebounds.

Champs

"Coming out like this
against the world champs
should really motivate us to
keep playing hard and win-
ning," Randolph said. "This is
really how we've got to play
in the new year."
Bryant scored 28 points for
the Lakers, who have lost
three of their last four home
games all three by at least
16 points, with a narrow New
Year's Eve win over Philadel-
phia in between and four
of six overall.
Los Angeles still leads the
woeful Pacific Division by
eight games, but the Lakers
have looked decidedly aver-,
age for most of the past two
weeks. The Lakers made 20
turnovers and trailed by 26
points in the fourth quarter,
eliciting boos from the fans
who didn't leave early.
Although Bryant earned
yet another technical foul for
a post-basket outburst, he
seemed more clinical than
emotional afterward.
"We didn't execute well,
and defensively we were


poor," Bryant said. "We've
just got to come out focused
and ready to play. It's tough
when you have to try to
regenerate that energy every
single night. It starts individ-
ually. You have to look at
yourself and try to find things
to get you going. Right now
we can't beat anybody, but
we'll be fine."
Andrew Bynum had nine
points, 11 rebounds and five
blocked shots for the Lakers,
but Memphis scored 28 fast-
break points and repeatedly
beat Los Angeles down the
court.
Los Angeles appeared
exhausted at times during its
fourth game in six days, and
it's a problem that's only
going to get worse. The Lak-
ers are early in a stretch of 15
games in 25 days, and they
won't get consecutive days off
again until Jan. 22-23.
"We're not really playing
together, and as a result, it's
costing us," Bynum said.
"Right now, we've got to be
concerned. We have to be ...
Good teams are looking at us
like we're soft."
Memphis took a nine-point
lead at halftime and then took
control with a 19-4 run late
in the third quarter after
Bryant shot the Lakers back
into it with 17 third-period
points. Bryant was visibly
frustrated, slapping the back
of a seat in anger when he
came out of the game in the
third. The crowd agreed with
its boos.
Gay scored 10 points in the
first quarter for the Grizzlies,
pushing them to an early lead.
Randolph scored 15 first-half
points on 7-for-10 shooting,
and Memphis closed the sec-
ond quarter with a 10-2 run to -
take a 48-39 lead.

Seahawks,


Colts, Falcons


and Steelers win titles


By The Associated Press
YEP, those were champi-
onship hats the Seattle Sea-
hawks were wearing..
Nope, they aren't ashamed
one bit.
The Seahawks became the
first NFL division winner with
a losing record that dates
to 1933, folks .- when they
beat St. Louis 16-6 on Sun-
day night. At 7-9, they are
NFC West champions, while
two 10-6 clubs (Tampa Bay
and the New York Giants)
are out of the postseason.'
Apologize for their for-
tune? Forget it.
"It just shows that no mat-
ter what happens through an
awkward year, if a team sticks
together they can have a shot
at the end to accomplish what
they talked about in the
beginning," safety Lawyer
Milloy said. "We know it was-
n't pretty getting here, but
what we talked about was
right there at the end and we
took advantage of it. Nobody
can take that away from us."
Indianapolis tied an NFL
record with its ninth straight
playoff berth by beating Ten-
nessee 23-20 on Adam
Vinatieri's 43-yard field goal
as time expired. The Colts
(10-6), host the wild-card Jets
(11-4), who routed Buffalo
38-7, next Saturday night.
Atlanta secured home-field
advantage throughout the
playoffs, winning the NFC
South by defeating Carolina
31-10. The Falcons (13-3) get
a bye next week, as do the
NFC North champion Bears
(11-5), who fell at Green Bay
10-3, giving the Packers (10-6)
a wild-card spot.
Green Bay visits Philadel-
phia (10-6), the NFC East
champ, next Sunday after
AFC West winner Kansas
City (10-6) hosts Baltimore
(12-4).
Along with Atlanta, teams
with byes are New England,
which finished a league-best
14-2; Pittsburgh (12-4); and
Chicago.
Failing to make the play-
offs in the NFC were the
Giants and Buccaneers, the
first time since 1991 that a 10-
6 team didn't get in from the
NFC.

Seahawks 16, Rams 6
At Seattle, both teams fin-
ished 7-9 in the mild, mild
West, with Seattle getting the
nod thanks to a 4-2 division
record. St. Louis was 3-3.
Making his second career
start, backup quarterback
Charlie Whitehurst threw a
4-yard TD pass on Seattle's
first possession, and Olindo
Mare kicked three second-
half field goals. A defense that
yielded at least 34 points, in
three straight losses was stingy
against Rams rookie quarter-.
back Sam Bradford and 1,000-
yard rusher Steven Jackson.

Colts 23, Titans 20
At Indianapolis, Peyton
Manning threw two touch-
down passes before Vinatier-
i's clutch kick. The Colts tied
Dallas' NFL record for con-
secutive playoff appearances
as Manning set the single-sea-
son record for completions
with 450.
Tennessee (6-10) lost eight
of its last nine. Chris John-
son, a 2,000-yard rusher a year
ago, ran 20 times for 39 yards
and finished with 1,364.

Falcons 31, Panthers 10
At Atlanta, the Falcons
earned their first division title
since 2004. Matt Ryan passed
for 236 yards with TDs to
Tony Gonzalez and Roddy
White, and Eric Weems
scored on a 55-yard punt
return.
Carolina (2-14) had a weak
finish to an awful season
under coach John Fox as the
league's worst offense was
held without a touchdown
until the final minute. The
Panthers announced Friday
that this was Fox's last game
as coach.

Steelers 41, Browns 9
At Cleveland, Ben Roeth-
lisberger threw two touch-
down passes, including a 56-
yarder to Mike Wallace on
his first pass.


FLIP SIDE: Tennessee Titans fullback Ahmard Hall (top) flips over Indianapolis Colts cornerback Justin Tryo
up to the play in the third quarter of Sunday's game in Indianapolis. The Colts defeated the Titans 23-20.


Wallace had three catches
for 105 yards.
Browns coach Eric
Mangini's record has been 5-
11 in each of his two seasons.
On Monday, he's scheduled
to meet with team president
Mike Holmgren.

Packers 10, Bears 3
At Green Bay, Wis., Aaron
Rodgers' 1-yard touchdown
pass to'tight end Donald Lee
gave the Packers the lead, and
their defense held on, to clinch
a wild card.
The Packers trailed 3-0 at
halftime and were tied going
into the fourth quarter with
the Bears, who didn't have
anything to play for in terms
of playoff seeding, but still,
played to win with their
starters.
Patriots 38, Dolphins 7
At. Foxborough, Mass.,
Tom Brady threw two touch-
down passes to cap a record-
setting season as New Eng-
land won its eighth straight.
The game meant nothing in
the standings. Still, Brady
played into the third quarter
and finished with 36 touch-
downs passing and four inter-
ceptions. He extended his
NFL records to 335 straight
passes without an intercep-
tion and 28 consecutive regu-
lar-season wins as a starter at
home.
The Dolphins (7-9) lost for
the fourth time in five games,
jeopardizing the job of coach
Tony Sparano.

Ravens 13, Bengals 7
At Baltimore, Ed Reed had
two interceptions and Ray
Lewis recovered two fumbles,
part of an opportunistic
defense that carried Balti-
more.
Ray Rice scored on a 7-
yard run and Billy Cundiff
kicked two field goals for the
Ravens, who forced five
turnovers to offset the 395
yards in offense amassed by
the Bengals (4-12).
Cincinnati coach Marvin
Lewis' contract ran out with
the loss.

Jets 38, Bills 7
At East Rutherford, N.J.,
Mark Brunell threw two
touchdown passes in relief of
Mark Sanchez, Joe McKnight
ran for a career-high 158
yards and the Jets' defense
dominated.
Having already clinched a
postseason spot, New York
sat a handful of starters,
including LaDainian Tomlin-
son and Darrelle Revis, but
still earned the fourth 11-win
season in franchise history -
and first since the 1998 team
went to the AFC champi-
onship game.
Buffalo finished 4-12, out
of the playoffs for the llth
successive season.

UPENDED: Rams' Danny Amendola is upended on a punt return
against the Seahawks in the second half of Sunday's game in Seattle.
The Seahawks won 16-6.


Buccaneers 23, Saints 13
At New Orleans, Josh Free-.
man passed for two touch-
downs and 255 yards, with a
2-yard scoring strike to Dez-
mon Briscoe in the back of
the end zone, and an 18-yard
TD to Mike Williams on
fourth-and-short. Connor
Barth hit three field goals as
Tampa Bay finished off a

will be able to take
sses. The question,


therefore, is whether it is better, after
taking the ace of clubs, to finesse in
trumps or diamonds. It is true that
South might have either king, and to
that extent either finesse has a 50-50
chance of winning. But insofar as
making the contract is concerned,
you are much better off trying the
diamond finesse.
If the diamond finesse wins, your


worries are over, because your next
move will be to play the ace and
another trump, planning to repeat the
diamond finesse later. If the diamond
finesse loses at trick two, you can
still get home safely if South started
with the singleton or doubleton king
of spades.
The decisive factor is that a trump
* finesse at trick two does not neces-
sarily make the slam even if it suc-
ceeds, because South might have
four or five trumps to the king, while
the diamond finesse virtually guaran-
tees the slam if South has the king.
2. Draw three rounds of trumps
and cash the ace of spades, discard-
ing a club from dummy. Then play a
diamond to the king, and if both
opponents follow suit, the contract is
assured. Continue with the jack and,
if South follows low, finesse.
If the jack wins, you make at least
12 tricks, while if it loses, the slam is
still certain, since North must next
either return a club into your A-Q or
hand you a ruff-and-discard.
If South shows out on the jack of
diamonds, you are still in good
shape. Simply win the jack with the
ace and concede a diamond to North,
forcing him to make the same losing
return.


Tomorrow: An ounce of prevention.

Venus looks

ahead to

injury-free

season

HONG KONG (AP) -
Venus Williams says she's
looking forward to a healthy
season for herself and sister
Serena after an injury-
plagued year for the siblings.
Serena missed the rest of
the year after winning Wim-
bledon in July because of a
cut on her right foot. She is
still recovering and will miss
the Australian Open, which
starts on January 17.

Wimbledon

After Wimbledon, Venus
only played at the US Open
because of a bothersome left
knee.
Venus will compete this
week in an exhibition tour-
nament in Hong Kong. She
said Monday that the sisters
will "reunite as a doubles
team pretty soon." She
added her younger sister is
in "very good spirits."
The Williams sisters have
won a combined 20 Grand
Slam singles titles.


No marathon: Isner beats



Mahut in just 90 minutes


By ALEXANDRA WILLIS
Associated Press


PERTH, Australia (AP) No
marathon tennis match this time. John
Isner defeated Nicolas Mahut 6-3, 7-6
(5) Monday at the Hopman Cup in
the first rematch since their 11-hour
epic at Wimbledon.
Isner overcame Mahut in 90 min-
utes to give the US an insurmount-
able 2-0 lead over France. The match
lasted 9 hours and 161 games less than
their previous record-breaking
encounter.
The Wimbledon match, the longest
in professional tennis history, stretched
over three days and finished at 70-68
in the fifth set.
The 19th-ranked Isner started
strong, breaking Mahut immediately
and holding firm to take the first set.
Mahut, who replaced the injured
Gael Monfils, improved in the second,
hitting just four unforced errors to the
American's 20. But he could not make
any inroads on Isner's serve. In the
tiebreaker, Isner converted his oppor-
tunity.
"Had I lost that second set it might
have gone four hours, so I was lucky to

finish it in two," Isner said. "For the
first match of the year, I was pretty
pleased with how I played.
"I got on top of him early in the
first set, he picked up his game in the
second, but I stayed the course with
mine. I didn't get to break, but fortu-
nately for me I came up with my best
serves. It's always an honor to share
the court with him."
Later, Isner teamed up with
Bethanie Mattek-Sands to secure a 3-
0 victory for the United States, beating
Mahut and Kristina Mladenovic 2-6, 6-
3, 10-8 in the mixed doubles.


Mattek-Sands had given the Amer-
icans a 1-0 lead by defeating former
top-ranked junior Mladenovic 3-6, 6-3,
6-1. The 56th-ranked Mattek-Sands,
dressed in black knee-high socks and
basketball shoes, recovered from drop-
ping the opening set against the 301st-
ranked opponent.
In the third set, Mladenovic received
treatment for a knee injury. Mattek-
Sands, who replaced the injured Sere-
na Williams, then cruised to the win.
"She came out crushing the ball,"
Mattek-Sands said. "She wasn't afraid
to come in and take balls on the rise,
which is normally my game. Toward
the end of the second set and the third,
I switched that around and started
coming in more."
The US and France are in Group
B along with Britain and Italy.
Italy's Potito Starace and Francesca
Schiavone defeated Britain's Andy
Murray and Laura Robson in the
deciding mixed doubles match 6-7 (1),
7-6 (6), 7-6 (2) to advance with a 2-1
win.
Schiavone beat the 16-year-old Rob-
son 7-5, 6-3 in singles to give Italy the
early lead before Murray opened with
a 7-5, 6-1 win over Starace.

Tsonga makes

winning return

DOHA, Qatar (AP) -
Third-seeded Jo-Wilfried
Tsonga beg4n his season with
a crushing 6-2, 6-0 win over
Ruben Ramirez Hidalgo of
Spain in the first round of the
Qatar Open.
Tsonga had not played
since October because of a
knee injury, but he showed
no signs of rust as he broke
serve three times in each set
to complete a one-sided win.
Also Monday, defending
champion Nikolay Davy-
denko of Russia eased past
Fabio Fognini of Italy 6-1, 6-4.
Top-ranked Rafael Nadal
opens against Karol Beck of
Slovakia today. Two-time
champion Roger Federer will

Report: Ronaldinho may end 10-year stint in Europe


By TALES AZZONI
Associated Press
SAO PAULO (AP) Ronald-
inho is reportedly negotiating a
return to.Brazil from AC Milan, with
three top clubs lining up to sign him.
The 30-year-old Ronaldinho is in
Brazil and his brother and agent
Roberto Assis said Flamengo,
Gremio and Palmeiras are trying to
sign the player. Assis told GloboEs-
porte.com on Sunday that a deal is
expected within a few days.
Assis said he met with the clubs'
representatives and is analyzing their
offers.'
"We don't know what's going to
happen yet, but we want him playing
in Brazil again," he told the web-


site.
Ronaldinho left AC Milan's train-
ing camp in Abu Dhabi on Friday
and was authorized to travel to
Brazil to negotiate his future even
though he is still under contract with
the Italian club.
Milan coach Massimiliano Alle-
gri said Sunday that Ronaldinho had
made a decision to "change his life,
go back to Brazil."
Ronaldinho has only made seven
starts for AC Milan in Serie A .this
season and seems set to follow the
likes of Ronaldo and Adriano in
returning to Brazil.
Ronaldinho won consecutive
FIFA World Player of the Year
awards in 2004 and 2005 while with
Barcelona and led the Spanish club


to the Champions League title in
2006. He also helped Brazil win the
2002 World Cup.,
Join
After leaving Barcelona to join
AC Milan in 2008, Ronaldinho
struggled at the'Italian club. He also
had a poor showing for Brazil at the
2006 World Cup and has played
infrequently for the national team.
He missed the World Cup in South
Africa.
Financial details on the terms of
Ronaldinho's potential transfer have
not been disclosed. All three Brazil-
ian clubs say they are seeking part-
nerships with sponsors to have
enough money to afford the forward.


Ronaldinho has previously
expressed a desire to play for Fla-
mengo, Brazil's most popular club.
Former Brazil teammate Adriano,
who helped Flamengo win the
Brazilian league last year after leav-
ing Italian side Inter Milan, said he
had spoken to Ronaldinho about his
decision.
"I told him that sometimes it's
important to follow his heart," Adri-
ano, back in Italy with AS Roma,
told Brazilian media.
Gremio is the team where Ronald-
inho started his career in 1998.
Palmeiras, an eight-time Brazilian
champion, is coached by Luiz Felipe
Scolari, who worked with the player
when Brazil won the 2002 World
Cup.


Chelsea seeks title




salvation against




Wolverhampton


By ROB HARRIS
AP Sports Writer

LONDON (AP) Still
reeling from conceding a late
equalizer to Aston Villa
Chelsea must avoid slipping
up again against another rel-
egation-threatened club when
the champions face Wolver-
hampton on Wednesday.
2..Despite manager Carlc
Ancelotti maintaining that
Chelsea is improving, the
team has won just two of its

89th-minute goal; but amid
the celebrations Ciaran Clark
leveled for Villa to secure a 3-
l 3 draw. .I
"We are improving and we.
, can save something this sea-'
son," Ancelotti said. "We lost
confidence because the hard
i moment was too long, but I
think we are improving."
Chelsea will face a Wolves
side that pulled off a surprise
t 1-0 win at Liverpool on
Wednesday but slumped to a
s 2-0 defeat by relegation rival
West Hain at the weekend
i and is now bottom of the
standings.
1 At the top, Chelsea is six
* points adrift of leader Man-
ci hester United, which has a


game in hand.
"First, they have to win
(their matches)," Ancelotti
said. "Second, I think that the
gap is not a light gap at this
moment, but everything is
open again. Obviously, we
have to beat them (United)
here, and we can say some-
thing again about the title."
Manchester rivals United
and City remain locked at the
top of the standings on 41
points although Alex Fergu-
son's side has played two few-
er games and has a superior
goal difference.

Old Trafford.
"You know you're in for a
battle when you play Stoke
and you have to win that bat-
tle and earn the right to play,"
Fletcher said. "They have
some players who like to
attack and Tony Pulis does-
n't like his side to sit back.
We expect them to come and
have a go at us."
City faces a tough test of its
title credentials Wednesday
at Arsenal, which beat
Chelsea at the Emirates Sta-
dium last Monday and
responded to a 2-2 draw at
Wigan by winning 3-0 at
Birmingham at the weekend.
Arsenal is only two points
behind City in third having
played a game less and won 3-
0 at Eastlands in ,the reverse
fixture in October.
"After the Chelsea game --
the team was on a 'high
because we got that burden
out of the way," Arsenal man-
ager Arsene Wenger said.
"After we were quickly down
again because we dropped
two points against Wigan, but
I am pleased we were quickly
back up again.
"This team could see the
positive effect of the Chelsea
win. It was there for all to see
on Saturday. You can see we
have the belief in our game
now. ThAt is what will make
the title race really interest-
ing."
Tottenham has 'made that
race even more interesting by
rattling off three successive
victories over Christmas and
New Year to sit fourth in the
standings.
Spurs goes to Everton on
Wednesday enjoying an 11-
match unbeaten run in all
competitions.
"It's been a fantastic week,
.nine points," Spurs manager
Harry Redknapp said. "Nine
points is a great return for us
and keeps us right in amongst
that top group."
Liverpool is more accus-
tomed to be battling at the
top rather than languishing in
ninth. '
But going into Wednes-
day's match at Blackburn, a 2-
1 victory over Bolton on Sat-
urday eased some of the
immediate pressure on man-
ager Roy Hodgson.
"We are pleased for the
fans, the owners and the man-
ager but we have all got to
stick together and kick on
from here, it can't be a false
dawn," said Joe Cole, who
netted Liverpool's winner on
Saturday.
Some of the heat is also off
Aston Villa manager Gerard
Houllier following the draw
at Chelsea.
"We showed character, we
showed bravery, we didn't
bottle it, we played," said
Houllier, whose side hosts
Sunderland on Wednesday.
West Ham and Wigan, who
are both directly below Villa
and just above the bottom
three on 20 points, are also in
action on Wednesday.
West Ham goes to Newcas-
tle and Wigan is at Bolton,
which is riding high in sev-
enth. While Wolves must tan-
gle with Chelsea, the two oth-
er clubs in the relegation zone
have an easier task on paper,
with Fulham hosting West
Brom and Birmingham trav-
eling to Blackpool today.
