Tributes poured in for the
popular minister for his "self-,

"indelible imprint" on the
country.
Rev Laish Boyd, Bishop for
the Diocese of The Bahamas
and Turks and Caicos Islands,
said: "Michael Eldon was a

faith in God and high hopes
for people. He was passion-

the hallmark throughout his

FAMILY OF DEAD MAN VOW TO CONTINUE FIGHT FOR JUSTICE


THE FAMILY of Preston Ferguson vowed
yesterday to continue their quest for justice
pvertis death.
For now, as his sister Eloise Moxey noted,
the family is in "limbo" as they have to wait to
have a date fixed for the commencement of the
inquest into his death.
Mr Ferguson was found dead in a truck on
the side of the road in the area of Ocean Addi-
tion East, near the Forest in Great Exuma on


August 2,2009.
Police said at the time that Mr Ferguson had
died when his truck ran off the road and hit a
utility pole.
However, his family raised suspicions about
the accident theory and have claimed the acci-
dent was "staged. They publicly refuted the
police's version of events and called for further

Man accused of rape claims

he was molested as a child
A 34-year-old man was arraigned in Magistrate's Court
yesterday charged with two counts of rape.
Samaco Wallace was arraigned before Magistrate Der-
rence Rolle-Davis in Court Five, Bank Lane.
It is alleged Wallace raped a woman on Wednesday, Jan-
uary 12, and another on Wednesday, February 2.
Wallace was not represented by an attorney and was not
required to enter a plea to the charges although he indi-
cated that he wanted to plead guilty.
A preliminary inquiry will be held.
Wallace claimed that he had been molested as a child by
a now deceased relative and told the magistrate he wanted
help as he suffered from depression.
"I really need help. Sometimes I just feel so depressed,"
Wallace told the magistrate as he stood in the prisoner's
dock.
Magistrate Rolle-Davis ordered that he receive pre-trial
counselling and evaluation.
Wallace was remanded to Her Majesty's Prison.
His first trial is scheduled for June 6 and 7.
His trial on the second count is scheduled for July 11 and
12.

ing victims in northwest New

their belongings after a haul of ..
stolen items was recovered over ....,' '-. _
the weekend..
At a press conference held yes-
terday, Supt Bethel, head of the
Central Detective Unit, praised
the officers who cracked a house-
breaking ring in the Lyford Cay > !
area, q i
"There are a number of break- I1
ins that have occurred, and we
will be in contact with all of the complainants and we will be look-
ing at a number of other matters in other areas other than Lyford
Cay to see if we can connect this with any of the other break-ins
that we've had.
"We have had break-ins in West Bay Street, West Ridge, also in
Gambier and other areas," he said.
Commending the teams at the Cable Beach and Lyford Cay sta-
tions for the breakthrough, Supt Bethel added that officers from
throughout the force should be commended for their success in
tackling house and shop break-ins in'the last few months.
He noted that just a week ago, a number of break-ins in the
Southwestern District were solved.
Supt Bethel said: "We are going to focus a lot on break-ins. We
are going to go after the persons who receive stolen goods. We are
going to go after the drug houses that take in stolen goods that they
pawn for drugs.
"We are going to bring relief to our citizens as they go about and
work and try to make their home a safe place to rest. So we are ask-
ing members of the public who have information, if you have had
a break-in and you have not heard from us, come and we will be
operating from here (Cable Beach) for a short period," he said.
In relation to the Lyford Cay housebreaking ring,'Superintendent
Elaine Sands confirmed yesterday that they have two persons in
custody a 21 year-old woman and a 24-year-old man who were
arrested at a house in Redland Acres. She added that police are
looking for two other persons in connection with the case.

"Immigration came down
there. They beat a lot of people.
Some of them don't have no
papers, but you don't have to
catch them and beat them hard
like that," said one Haitian res-
ident.
"They come with the crow-
bar, big maul. They use that to
break down the houses and
catch the people. If they knock
at the door and you don't open,
they break the door down and
look for you. If they catch you
any place inside the house you
are in trouble," the source said.
Another Haitian source said
it is common for officers to
enter a home even'if no one is
there. The officers sometimes
have to break metal locks and
chains with a bolt cutter.
According to the source, who
lives in the village, the residents
are sometimes victims of theft:
cell phones or money.
Immigration officials con-
firmed in a weekend statement
that there was an early morning
operation on Friday in the Hait-
ian Village off Joe Farrington
Road. The tactics used by the
34 immigration and Defence
Force officers in the raid will
be investigated, said Director
of Immigration Jack Thomp-
son. Mr Thompson was not
available to address the specif-
ic accusations yesterday.
A man was allegedly slapped
several times by an immigra-
tion officer, after he said "I
straight boy." A Tribune source
claims the officer scolded the
man for referring to him as
"boy" and beat him as a result.
He allegedly used harsh exple-
tives.
Another resident was
allegedly slapped and beaten
by a female officer.
"He can't even hear too
good right now and the fellow
had papers. She didn't ask him
any questions she beat him
hard before she asked for any
papers," a Tribune source
alleged.
Participating officers had
their share of complaints,
according to Tribune sources,
about the "hostile behaviour"
of some
residents. Tribune sources say
one officer reported being bit-

Running
In defence of the officers,
another Tribune source said:
"We have instances in that
same. village where people
break off running and leave
infant kids. You only hear that
immigration beat up, bloody
up, drag out someone, but why
would you run and leave an
infant child?"
"People complicate these
things. If people would co-oper-
ate, once an immigration officer
is satisfied you are who you say
you are, then there is no prob-
lem. I don't know what all the
fight is about. I become
extremely suspicious when peo-
ple are putting up a fight," he
said. Questions were raised by
residents about the statutory
authority of immigration offi-
cers to forcibly enter homes to
carry out inquiries.
An informed Tribune source
said that generally speaking,


said a Tribune source.
"When we are just conduct-
ing a simple inquiry as to your
immigration status there is a lot
we stumble on. People don't
understand the complications.
This is not easy. When you are
going out there in the name of
this country you come up
against a lot of obstacles and
resistance," he said.
The cooperation of residents
is "critical" to the success of

tion. However, The Tribune
understands details will be
released later this week.
Speaking about the claims of
aggressive tactics, Deputy
Prime Minister and Minister of
Immigration Brent Symonette
said: "There was one incident
of a person, an illegal immi-
grant, attacking someone, an
officer reacting, and an alter-
cation ensued."

Obama looks from Egypt to US economy


Obama has been recalibrating his posi-
tions on the economy since the Republican
landslide in November. The Democrat has
shown a willingness to compromise and has
shaken up his White .House, replacing key
advisers with figures seen as more business-
friendly. That in turn has led to a significant
rise in his approval ratings with Americans.
He speaks Monday at the Republican-
friendly. Chamber of Commerce, a major foe
in the last election. It will be his first speech to
the organization which, not four months ago,
he attacked for failing to disclose donors to its
huge, $32 million congressional political cam-
paign, "Their lips are sealed," Obama said at
the time, "but the floodgates are open."
Now, facing the new reality created by
the November vote, White House officials
say Obama's speech will not break new poli-
cy ground. In his radio and Internet address
Saturday, Obama said businesses have an
obligation to stay in the United States, hire
American workers and invest in the nation's
future.
"That's the message I'll be bringing to
American business leaders at the Chamber of
Commerce on Monday that government
and businesses have mutual responsibilities,
and that if we fulfil these obligations togeth-
er, it benefits us all," he said.
The message is not limited to the Cham-
ber. Obama already has met with top U.S.
executives in December to push them to put
some of the billions of dollars they are:hold-
ing back into circulation to createjobs.:-Hehas
compromised with Republicdns on tax cuts.
That gained him grudging support from-big
business.
Obama also promises a review of govern-
ment regulations, something that is at the
top of the business agenda, particularly the
financial sector that is facing a swath of new
rules.
The president's renewed focus on the
economy, however, could easily be knocked
aside by events in Egypt. While the crisis
seemed to ease as the government began
talks with the opposition 'and gave ground
on major points, the crisis is not over. A
wrong step by the government and its security
forces, balkiness in moving forward toward
new elections and the departure of President
Hosni Mubarak could easily tip the balance
back to bloody violence. That would force
Obama back into trying to manage a deep cri-
sis abroad one that is critical to American
policy throughout the Middle East and
beyond.

Hurst of the Associated Press).


Lynden Pindling




took racial




discrimination to




greater heights


EDITOR, The Tribune.

On page four of Thursday's
edition of The Tribune was a
letter to the Editor, under the
heading: "Sir Lynden's name
should not be in textbooks
under racism." I cannot agree
more, for it was none other
than Lynden Oscar Pindling
who, after the late Sir Etienne
Dupuch presented his histor-
ical anti-discrimination reso-
lution to parliament that
brought an end to racial dis-
crimination in this country,
started a reverse racial dis-
crimination campaign among
the black masses, that saw this
once tranquil nation split wide
apart. He, Pindling did not
bring about the end of racial
discrimination, he just
reversed it and took it to
greater heights.
The PLP politicians, blind
supporters, gofers, paid writ-
ers, and henchmen of the late
Lynden Pindling, take a
delight at the slightest oppor-
tunity in attempting to hood-
wink our younger unsuspect-
ing generation, who were yet
unborn when Lynden Pin-
dling was racially and politi-
cally dividing this nation and
corrupting its citizens, that he,
Pindling was responsible for
bringing about all of tile
changes that occurred during
that era. It has been often said
that the only original idea that
Lynden Pindling ever came
up. with was a booklet he
wrote titled "One Man's
Dream" in 1965, which
prompted a march on his res-
idence by a number of cabinet
ministers and others seeking
his resignation.
The end of discrimination
in public places came about
as a result of Sir Etienne's
Resolution, without an act of
Parliament. Pindling had


WASHINGTON (AP) For now, the
fever appears to be breaking in the Egyptian
crisis, allowing President Barack Obama to
turn back to pressing U.S. economic trou-
bles and the impending political battles over
solutions to America's huge and threatening
debt burden.
The overt subtext every day from now
until November 2012 also will display an Oba-
ma who is carefully positioning himself for
election to a second term. So far, his han-
dling of the crisis in Egypt, while less than.
sure-footed, has found broad bipartisan sup-
port a political bullet dodged. But the
economy remains wobbly, and therein lies
the key to re-election of America's first black
president.
He faces a Republican drive to cut spend-
ing that begins in earnest this week, building
on November elections that returned the par-
ty to the majority in the House of Represen-
tatives on campaign promises of smaller gov-
ernment and reducing the federal debt.
There is broad agreement among politi-
cians of both parties that the country can no
longer sustain a federal deficit projected to
reach $1.5 trillion this year, and an accumu-
lated debt of more than $13 trillion.
The lines will be drawn this week as the
House begins working on a bill to keep the
government in operation after March 4, with
Republicans demanding that funding be $35
billion lower than what was enacted .for last
year. That would tide the government over
through September. The new budget year
begins October 1.
Preparing for the battle, Obama's budget
director, in an article in the New York Times
on Sunday, pointed to spending cuts in three
popular programmes in states and cities as
examples of the "tough choices" ahead in
the White House budget blueprint that also
will propose lower spending overall. At the
same time, Obama wants to direct money to
new initiatives. He sends his spending pro-
posal to Congress on February 14.
The president already has called for a five-
year freeze on discretionary spending, except
for national security. That will reduce the
deficit by more than $400 billion over 10
years, according to the White House.
Budget director Jacob Lew, however, cau-
tioned Republicans against indiscriminate
budget cutting in what he called areas critical
to long-term growth, including education,
innovation and public works. Such reduc-
tions, he said, "would stifle the economy just
as it begins to recover. That, in turn, would
deprive us of one of the most powerful drivers
of deficit reduction, a growing economy."

nothing to do with it, in fact
he was not even there.,I was
on duty in the House along
with Corporal John Crawley.
That event is written in detail
in my Memoirs. Majority
Rule came about in 1967 as a
result of the late Randol
Fawkes and Alvin R Braynen
who formed a coalition with
the PLP who had run a dead
heat with the UBP in the gen-
eral elections, UBP 18, PLP
18, Pindling and the PLP, con-
trary to published lies, did not
win anything. It was Fawkes
and Braynen who brought
about the event by joining
forces with the PLP.
Pindling's infamous act of
throwing the mace out of Par-
liament in 1965 and Milo's fol-
low the chief act by throwing
the hour glass, was in my
opinion, an act of desperation
and frustration in an attempt
to draw attention to them-
selves. I was on duty at par-
liament on this occasion, as a
chief inspector, in fact, the
mace fell directly in front of
me and broke in two.
Retrieved the bottom portion;
but before I could reach the
top portion, it was picked up
by a PLP supporter and
thrown into the crowd where
it disappeared.
In 1963 The Bahamas, at a
'Constitutional conference in
London was granted Internal
self government by Great
Britain, this brought about
ministerial government with
its head being designated Pre-
mier. This change came into
effect in 1964, with the late
Sir Roland" Symonette being
,named the first Premier, Pin-


dling was the second and last
to hold that title. This move
was made in preparation for
the country going indepen-
dent.
If the UBP had won the
1967 election, the country
would have been independent
by 1970. Great Britain was
shedding all of her Colonial
territories at the time. In fact
during the 1967 and '68 elec-
tions Pindling and the PLP
campaigned against Indepen-
dence telling the voters that
the white folks would be tak-
ing them back into slavery. In
the government's Speech
from the Throne in 1968 Pin-
dling promised he would not
seek independence. It was
after winning the 1968 elec-
tion and learning that inde-
pendence was a foregone con-
clusion that he started harping
on independence for the
Bahamas to fool the masses
which he succeeded in doing.
There are inany in this nation
who, through ignorance and
blind loyalty to a political
despot, believes.the blatant
lie that he, Pindling, was
responsible for the country
achieving Independence, he
was not, the only role he
played was being in the right
place at the right time.
I congratulate the letter
writer, Ms Asiah Munnings,
for having the fortitude and
courage to put the lie to these
too often repeated feats that
through the years are attrib-
uted to have been achieved
by Pindling. What can be
termed his chief achievements
are the corrupt state and
moral decay of this once
Christian nation.

Mr. Minister of Tourism, break


down this wall of discrimination


EDITOR, The Tribune.
The following letter has
been sent to the Minister of
Tourism. I am sending it to
you for publication. Rod-
ney Moncur


Minister of Tourism,
Nassau.
Dear Minister,
Re: Discriminatory prac-
tices at Fort Charlotte
I am the owner and opera-
tor of Taxi # 860. On Saturday
past, God blessed me with a
two hours tour. My tour start-
ed from the Hilton Hotel at
11 a.m.
We proceeded to Fort
Charlotte. Upon my arrival,
I attempted to drive through
the gate of the fort to take my
guests (four of them) on a
ride around it.
A female security officer
stopped me and told me that I
was not allowed to drive
through. I asked her why and
she told me that only Majestic
Tours and The Bahamas Taxi
Cab Union are allowed to dri-
ve through.
I told her that this was dis-
criminatory and I would obey
her, but on Monday, I shall
call upon you to break down
this wall of discrimination and
special interest protection
which your Party and govern-


ment are practising. I had to
find'a way to make up to the
tourists and accordingly
extended their tour for an
additional hour. That as a
result of that tour on Satur-
day, in which the tourists held
a luncheon in my honour and
paid me very well, I am able
to put a little something on
my bill at The Bahamas Mort-
gage Corporation. I demand
the right to take my tourists
through the gates of Fort
Charlotte in the same man-
ner that Majestic Tours and
The Bahamas Taxi Cab
Union are allowed to do it
and an apology forthwith.
Mr. Minister of Tourism
break down that wall of dis-
crimination and special inter-
est at Fort Charlotte forth-
with.
Yours faithfully,

Lots of rumours but how about investors?

EDITOR, The Tribune.
I found it interesting reading the Neil Hartnell story that there
are rumours that a Middle Eastern group were rumoured to be
making offers for the Port.
Was it not the Minister of State last week also rumoured that
there was a group looking at the Harcourt property, Royal Oasis?
Then there was the statement that the group proposing a large
development at Smiths Point, land outside of The Port which
GBDEVCO owns. Editor, can we only deal with rumours and no
investors with money, old fashioned cash in the bank?
Surely the Port should have issued a release denying or con-
firming as should the local rep for Harcourt and GBDEVCO?
How long was it for Baha Mar to get to a position where it
eventually was funded 2005 through 2010 the unemployed
can't wait that long so surely the investment policy should be if
you ain't got money don't apply!
Headlines sell newspapers and nothing else rumours can't
make a sandwich.

_ ing on the island.
, Minister of State for the
a Environment Phenton Ney-
mour and Water and Sewer-
age Corporation officials vis-
ited Grand Cay, Abaco last
week with the intention of.
again- confirming that the
a water is safe for human con-
2" sumption and satisfies World
*- Health Organisation and UK
a guidelines.
b This follows repeated claims
It by Opposition PLP chairman
it Bradley Roberts that the
,.: water is toxic.
-- "I have confidence in the
3 Water and Sewerage Corpo-
ration, that it will do.what is in
the best interest of the
Bahamian people, in regards
to the supply: of water," Mr
Neymour said.
"The Water and Sewerage
a Corporation is mandated by
legislation to provide safe
H drinking water. They are also
-c required to monitor it and
b when qualities exceed inter-
-''national'sthndards, they are
a.t'to; report the quality of that ,
b! water and so the Water and
* -Sewerage Corporation has
been carrying that out quite
effectively over time."
The Grand Cay settlement
was first occupied in the 1920s
by visiting fishermen from
Grand Bahama, who used it.
as a temporary base. Today,
it is estimated that there are
about 450 residents on the
island.
According to a WSC press
brief, the water distribution
system and storage facility was
originally installed on Grand
Cay in 1995 and desalinated
water supply provided from
o nearby Sea Horse Cay by

International to install a
22,000 US-gallons-per--day
plant.
According to WSC general'
manager Glen Laville, the RO
plant came in operation in
November 2010 and, after sev-
eral days of operation,. the
supply developed an odour as
a result, of Hydrogen Sulphide
(H2S) in. the supply wells.
The presence of Hydrogen
Sulphide is not an "uncom-
mon" occurrence for RO sup-
ply wells in the Bahamas and
it is considered an aesthetic
consideration, not a health
risk, he added.
Under WHO guidelines,
there is not even a concentra-
tion limit for this compound
in potable water, the brief
said.
"You cannot harm yourself
with Hydrogen Sulphide in
the water," Mr Leville said.
"Hydrogen Sulphide as a gas
is' dangerous and that was
what was reported in the
media; but to try and link the
. dangers of Hydrogen Sulphide
in it gaseous form and in
potable water are two differ-
ent things."
"We have taken steps to
resolve that (Hydrogen Sul-
phide odour) through chlori-"
nation, ozonation, aeration
and that seems to be working
well," Mr.Laville said. "Right
now we have no more odour
left in the water.we supply."
"Probably about 25 per cent
of the feed water wells.(in the
Bahamas) have it to some lev-
el," WSC consultant and


hydrogeologist Dr Richard
Cant said of Hydrogen Sul-
phide. "You see that there is
probably a lot of rotting veg-
etation in the mangrove
behind us there and it could
have been compiling for cen-
turies and there is probably a
lot of stuff in there.
"We know that Walker's
Cay had a problem with H2S
and that's about seven miles
away and they had a deep well
and they had it. This is some-
thing that occurs and we just
have to 'learn' ourselves':
around it."
WSC assistant general man-
ager with responsibility for the.
Family Islands and business
development Philip Beneby.
said that they want to re-iter--
ate to consumers on Grand
Cay that the water is safe and.
can be used for all their needs.
"We are satisfied that the
quality of water is there andr-
please, if there are any par-:
ticular concerns, residents can
contact us and we will be
responding, post-baste." -Mr
Beneby.said.
Mr Laville added that
recently, in the media, there-
.was a report of bacteria jn the;
water and the Corporation
investigated the claim immer-
diately, as its primary concern:
is the safety of its customers.
Such concerns lead to the
corporation taking their own
samples from several locations
in sanitary containers within
24 hours of the report.
"We are taking our own
samples because we question,
the integrity of the procedure
used to take the previous sam-
ple that was reported on," Mr
Laville said, referring to a
sample the PLP chairman
claimed to have had tested by
a private firm in Nassau.
"When you start to deal
with health and safety con-
cerns (of potable water) you
have to be very careful about
what is reported and that
proper procedures are fol-
lowed in taking samples dur-
ing the tests .and also ;in
reporting the results."
"We will' be sampling
throughout the day and take
them back to New Providence
and tested in our labs and we,
will publish the results," Mr
Laville said.

TO BE HIRED

FOR BAHA MAR

CONSTRUCTION


FROM page one

Construction on the
Commercial Village is
expected to begin early in
the second-quarter of
2011, said Mr Ingraham,
work which will be award-
ed solely to Bahamian
contractors while work on
the new West Bay Street
should begin by the end of
this month.
The amount of work
available comes after the
government last year
negotiated an increase in
construction contracts
allotted to Bahamians, to
$400 million from $200
million during a high-level
meeting in China, said Mr
Ingraham.
"As a result of the dou-
bling of contracts to be
executed by Bahamian
finrms; the-number of
Bahamians to be engaged
on the project during con-
struction is likely to be as
many as 4,500," he said.
A sizable portion of
work on the core element
of the project also will be
sub-contracted to locals,
the nation's chief added.
The amended HOA also
mandates that Baha Mar
. create and sustain a learn-
ing institution for its
employees the Training
and Service Academy to
give extensive instruction
24 months before the
resort's hotels open. After
the property begins busi-
iess, the school will be a
periiahent fixture intend-
ed to boost the quality of
service given by Bahami-
ans in the hospitality
industry.
"The academy is to be
permanent offering ongo-
ing training opportunities
for employees and
prospective employees,"
said Mr Ingraham.
An $8 million training
programme facilitated
through the Bahamas
Technical and Vocational
Institute and.the College
of the Bahamas has
already been established
to train and certify labour-
ers.
Mr Ingralinaial corn-
mended Baha Mar Chair-
man Sarkis Izmirlian's
unwavering dedication to
the project even after its
initial partner Harrah's
Entertainment pulled out
in 2008. The developers
secured a new financial
partner China Export
Import Bank and China
State Construction and
received formal approval
from the People's Repub-
lic of China last year.
Three luxury hotel oper-
ators have signed on to the
$2.6 billion development -
Rosewood, Morgan's, and
Hyatt who will make
capital investments of $10
million by the first two
while the latter will inject
$37 million.
Mr Ingraham boasted
that the adjusted Heads of
Agreement signed in 2008
enhanced Government's
financial benefits while
slashing concessions
agreed to in the 2005
HOA under the Christie
administration.
In the amended 2008
HOA Government:
1. Refused Baha Mar's
request to permit addition-
al deductions from annual
casino licence fees by
another 14 years.
2. Refused additional
special concessions on
casino taxes for three
years.
3. Refused to provide
$40 million in co-operative
marketing for the relaunch
of the Cable Beach area.
4. Mandates that Baha

By CELESTE NIXON
Tribune Staff Reporter
cnixon@tribunemedia.net

ment and the developer for the comple-
tion of various road and utility improve-
ments.

ments, including constructing a new John
F Kennedy Drive connector road (the
"JFK Connector"), and diverting West

vide suitable landscaping, lighting, sig-
nage, drainage, footpaths and jogging
trails.
It is estimated that the improvements
to road networks will cost around $91)
million $45.3 million of which the gov-

FIRM OBLIGATED TO PAY

GOVT $17M FOR CECIL
WALLACE WHITFIELD CENTRE
.BAHA MAR will be obligated to
pay government $17,686,000 for the
Cecil Wallace Whitfield Centre, which
will be demolished to make way for the
luxury development.
Baha Mar will also convey-to the
government a 2.259 acre parcel of land
on which the new West Bay Street will
sit.
The parcel in question begins where
the southern side of West Bay Street
and the eastern boundary of the West-
ward Villas Subdivision meet.
With 90 days notice from Baha Mar,
the government will vacate and convey
the Cecil Wallace Whitfield Centre
(CWWC), turning it over to the project
company subject to the lease between.
the government and Scotia Bank.
Baha Mar is not expected to occupy
or use the CWWC for any purpose.
However, demolition on the building
will begin within 30 days after con-
veyance of the CWWC.
The building., is named after one of
the founding members of the Free
National Movement and one of the
party's most distinguished leaders, Sir
Cecil Wallace-Whitfield.


Baha Mar %will bear the cost of the
relocation of all abole-ground power
and utility lines and poles along the new
JFK connector road and will maintain
the existing electrical facilities servicing
the Cable Beach area during construc-
tion of the public infrastructure works.
The company will then re-establish these
facilities on the new West Bay Street.
Under the HOA. the government
must also facilitate expansions and
improvements to variouss public utilities.
The expansion of BEC and BTC capa-
bilities in the area is required to supply
the project with a secure and uninter-
rupted electricity supply and GSM
mobile telephone roaming services for
residents and visitors.
A new, sub-station (electrical genera-
tion, transmission and distribution facil-
ity) will be constructed by Baha Mar.
The HOA holds that the Baha Mar
company has agreed "to pay all costs
associated with the design, construction.
completion, commissioning and con-
necting of the ne" substation."
The company al.o will be responsible
for the decommission of the old Leisure
Time Sub-station once the new station is
complete.
The Baha Mar project with also
require the co-operation of government
utility companies in releasing designs
for proposed works and approvals of
completed works, to ensure the compa-
ny is completing the project in a "timely
manner.

CABLE BEACH POLICE STATION TO BE

REPLACED WITH BIGGER VERSION

AFTER it is demolished, the Cable Beach Police Sta-
tion will be replaced with a bigger, 10,118 square-foot ver-
sion by Baha Mar. The government will pay 50 per cent of

BAHA Mar will bear the expense of relocating the straw markets on Cable Beach to new locations on its property.
However, in the event the government determines that any of these facilities should be replaced outside of the boundaries

In the event the government determines that any of these facilities should not be replaced, then Baha Mar will pay the gov-
ernment the market value of the land and buildings.



Government to enter co-operative

THE government has agreed to
enter into a co-operative marketing
campaign with Baha Mar on a fund
matching basis, to the tune of
$20,000,000.
The campaign will be dedicated to
the reintroduction to the marketplace
of the redeveloped Cable Beach area
of New Providence.
Other resorts in the Cable Beach
area of New Providence will be invited

fund matching basis in amounts to be
determined by the government.
The campaign by the government
and the project company will begin
one year prior to the opening of the


project with an anticipated duration
of two years.
Further, after the opening of the new
casino at Baha Mar, government will,
for an eight-year period,,contribute $4
million a year towards the cost and
expense of the marketing activities of
the resort, the newly-tabled Baha Mar
Heads of Agreement states.

ernment will be going toward direct
costs and will exclude the cost of
salaries paid to Baha Mar employees.


LOANS FOR SMALL INDEPENDENT
BUSINESSES COULD BE

ACCORDING to its heads of
agreement with the government,
Baha Mar is expected to imple-
ment a programme that may
include loans to small independent
businesses to help develop the
local agriculture and fishing indus-
tries.
The products of these ventures
will be used to supply restaurants
within the produce.

THE TRIBUNE


LOA NW


It's most urgent

By JOHN ISSA ..

NOW that ocean
freight is on the move
from East Bay Street to ;
Arawak Cay the redevel-
opment of downtown
Nassau must occupy the
front burner. The other .
major projects in New
Providence are moving .. -'
along. Albany has
opened and the second '
phase is about to com-
mence. Baha Mar has
announced a date for
ground breaking. In less
than three months the
first containers should be unloaded at Arawak Cay.
The new terminal and other amenities at the LPIA are
rapidly progressing to completion. Smaller projects
like the new shopping mall in the west are under con-
struction.
This now leaves the other most important project,
the redevelopment of downtown as the urgent priori-
ty.
What make this project even more important than
the others I mentioned is that it will have a greater
direct impact on the daily lives and psychological out-
look of the Nassau community. The revival of the
heart of the Capital City will uplift the national pride
and confidence of our people. It will also revive the
downtown economy and boost Cruise tourism. Addi-
tionally it will have a very positive impact on the land
based tourism industry as well because it will immea-
surably improve the image of Nassau. as a destination.
Even if I am only half right, the revival and redevel-
opment of downtown should not be left to move along
at its own pace.
The country can't afford it. One way of accelerating
the development is creating.a defined special econom-
ic zone incorporating that area which the Government
determines to include in the downtown redevelop-
ment project. Within this economic zone there should
be a single administrative and planning agency which
would have the authority to deal with all planning
approvals and business licensing.
This Agency should also assist foreign investors in
the zone with obtaining necessary approvals. These
will fast track development projects within the zone.
All elements of this project should be made the
responsibility of one Ministry so as to cut through red
tape.
A necessary element which will light a fire under
investors would be special tax incentives for a limited
time, say five, ears. These could include relief from
import duties for construction within the zone, relief
from transfer taxes and even relief from the business
license fee for the first five years of businesses creat-
ing new employment. This would allow the early birds
to get the worm.

BCP issues 'clarion call' for



2012 Christian candidates


THE Bahamas Constitution
Party wants to find 39 Christian
men and women to represent
the party's message and carry
its banner in the 2012 general
election.
Each candidate vying for the
party's endorsement must be
of the Christian religion, have
strong personal faith and con-
victions, and possess "moral
fortitude and integrity",
according to a statement issued
-by the BCP yesterday.
It said: "While no person is
perfect, their life must be in
order and they must be able to,
withstand the questions and
scrutiny of the candidate
screening committee and a
basic inquiry."
The party assured all
prospective candidates that the
results of its investigations will
be strictly confidential.
This comes as the party
announced plans to revolu-
tionise the way campaigning is
conducted in the Bahamas.
BCP interim leader Ali
McIntosh said: "Despite what
seems like a mighty force of
the governing Free National
Movement, the outward facade
of the momentum of the Pro-
gressive Liberal Party the
rhetorical pretense of a third
party alliance, the Bahamas
Constitution Party has not
changed its message or its man-
date of going forward in the-
2012-general election with its
full slate of candidates."

This, she said, has over the
years resulted in a low stan-

Assembly and the poor perfor-

"Consequently, the BCP has
resorted to changing the game

way to bring forward the most

willing to serve their country,"
Ms McIntosh said.
She said the party is extend-

THE co-ordinator of the National Par-
enting Programme said she is disappoint-
ed that few churches responded to her call
to participate in improving family life in
the Bahamas.
Cheryl Carroll said many churches
ignored the invitation to take part in a
specially organised training initiative, even
though the sessions are free of charge and
participants are free to use the skills they
acquire however they wish.
She noted that while the response from
churches was dismaying an interest was
expressed by some of the other, organisa-
tions contacted, particularly Urban
Renewal centres.
"We need churches to get involved
especially those in areas where there is
an Urban Renewal centre," said Mrs Car-
roll. "We target those areas because we
want fo connect Urban Renewal and the
churches.
"We could use the pastors, lay workers
and those persons working in the urban
renewal centres as facilitators."
The training, 'which begins on Febru-
ary 16, qualifies participants to work as
facilitators for the NPP, and Mrs Carroll
said the programme still needs movie peo-
ple who have experience working with
families, churches or community organi-
sations.
Anyone interested is asked to contact
Mrs Carroll, who is also a senior.probation
officer, at the Rehabilitative and Welfare
Services Office located in the Abaco Mar-
kets Building on Thompson Boulevard
before Friday, February 11.
Individuals choosing to take part in the
training will join those who are already
facilitating parenting classes at the Reha-
bilitative and Welfare Services Office as
well as at Her Majesty's Prisons and the
PACE programme for teen mothers, Mrs
Carroll explained.
In addition, an eight week training pro-
gramme is being run for St Anne's School

These additional classes are achieving
the programme's objective, of expanding
into the communities, Mrs Carroll said.
"Once parents have .the information,
that information is power and will help
them know how to deal with their chil-

PICTuRESFRMTEBInEOFBISHOPmiICHAEfIAR ELDON


FROM page one
Bahamian to teach there. He spent many years
making an impact in Grand Bahama as parish
priest. A local school is named in his honour.
He was consecrated Bishop Suffragan of
New Providence on June 24,1971, and became
Diocesan Bishop in April, 1972, serving in that
capacity for 24 years until his retirement in
1996.
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said: "Bish-
op Eldon leaves a significant'legacy not only in
the Anglican community but in the annals of a
young nation in which he was the first local
priest to become prelate, having assumed that
high church position fully a year before we
gained Independence in July of 1973.
"Bishop Eldon has been rightly praised for
his role in-bringing about the full Bahamiani-
sation of the Anglican Church in The Bahamas
as more than 50 Bahamians were trained as
priests on his watch, reducing, and indeed elim-
inating, the need for Anglican clerics to be
recruited to this Diocese from abroad."
In 2005, Bishop Eldon suffered from recur-
rent pneumonia problems with blood poison-
ing, respiratory and heart problems. He first
went on medical,.ventilation, or life support,
at that time.
While his condition was once stable enough
for home care, for the past two years, he was
cared for in hospital in a comatose state.
"Bishop Eldon's voice was silenced by long
years of illness but the message and legacy of
this high, holy man remains strong and relevant
today. He was an advocate for good, for schol-
arship, for social advancement, for human
decency, arid for Christian charity. We 'hon-
our him in his passing and hold him up as most
worthy of emulation," said Mr Ingraham.
. "Bishop Eldon caused new congregations
to be established in new suburbs around New
Providence and the Family Islands, construct-
ed new churches and repaired and renovated
others, throughout the island communities of
our country. Bishop Eldon had a special affin-
ity for Family Island communities and was a'
great supporter of the development of repre-
sentative Local Government," he said.
For many in the Anglican diocese and across
the Bahamas, Bishop Eldon left an "indelible
imprint".
Philip Davis, Cat Island, Rum Cay and San
Salvador MP, said: "Today we pay tribute to
the late Bishop Michael Eldon for his selfless
service and commitment to God and Country
which have reached even beyond the bounds of
this nation. Bishop Eldon's ministry indeed
tottched the world, and engendered growth in
.the Church that gave birth to a nation in this
part of the globe..
"His Godly instruction, sound wisdom, spir-
itual mentorship and modeled devotion in
building up humanity are wholesome teach-
ings which have truly guided our nation for-
ward, onward, upward together."
Bishop Eldon also served as the founding
chairman of the College of the Bahamas (CoB)
board of directors, serving from 1975 to 1995.
When the college's:Thompson Boulevard com-
plex was named in his honour, then Attorney
General and Minister of Education Alfred
Sears said Bishop Eldon's name speaks of
"scholarship and excellence, patriotism and
service, integrity and warmth".
At the opening ceremony, then Council Pres-
ident Herbert Scott Jr said: "He has influenced
generations.of Bahamians and has profoundly
impacted the Anglican Church, not just here in
our country, but his reputation is known
thr6ughout.the West Indies."
He is survived by his sister, Mrs Keva
Bethel, retired president of the College of the
Bahamas, his niece, Nicolette Bethel Burrows,
and her husband, Philip Burrows, his nephew,
Edward Clement Bethel, and his wife Tasha,
and their four-year-old son, Jaxon,. and many
cousins.

FNM 'has built vibrant


shareholding s


Statement released by gov


WHILE the Opposition
talks about economic empow-
erment, the Free National
Movement has in fact.built a
vibrant shareholding society
in which all Bahamians now
enjoy greater ownership of
the national economy and
more personal financial
opportunities, the FNM said
in a press statement last
night.
The statement said that
"this includes the offering of
shares at the new port at
.Arawak Cay which will help
in the revitalization of
downtown, boost our
tourism industry and pro-
vide a modern and more
efficient port for the flow of
goods through New Provi-
dence." t .
It noted that the "Opposi-
tion continues to talk about
the new port but never got
around to actually building
one.",
Forty per cent of the
shares at the Arawak Cay
Port will be held by the
Government, 40 per cent
will be held by 20 private
companies and 20 per cent
will be made available to the
Bahamian public, the state-
ment said.
* The FNM said that essen-
tially 60 per cent of the
shares at the port .will be
held between the govern-
ment and individual share--
holders.
"Rather than press state-
ments and posturing on the
matter of affording Bahami-
ans access to shares in vari-
ous public and private con-
cerns, the Opposition may
wish to put its record on the
table instead of endless
talk," the FNM said.
"Sadly, its record does not
match its rhetoric.or the
considerable achievements
of the FNM in building a


shareholding society.",
The FNM said that it
"helped to empower indi-
viduals, families, pension
funds, unions, institutional
and other investors to pur-
chase shares in a broad
range of private, public and
joint venture companies.
This has made hundreds of
millions of dollars of assets
available to the Bahamian
people as investments, col-
lateral and for their retire-*
ment."
It listed"the following
'facts:
FACT: The FNM overt-
saw and encouraged the cre-
ation of the Bahamas Inter-
national Stock Exchange
(BISX) to. help in the:
advancement of a share-
holding society in which all
Bahamians enjoy access to
owning shares in various
entities.
FACT: The FNM
required the then Freeport
Power Company, now the'
Grand Bahama Power Com-
pany, to make available a
percentage of shares for res-
idents of Grand Bahama and'
company employees.
FACT: Forty-nine per
cent of the shares of the
Bank of The Bahamas were
made available to the public
with 51 per cent held by the
Government.
FACT: Significant shares
were offered to the general
public in Cable Bahamas,
which today is overwhelm-
ingly Bahamian owned.
FACT: The initial shares
for the Bank of Bahamas

nities for many citizens with
moderate and higher

initial nine per cent of
shares held by the Govern-
ment of The Bahamas will

shares made available will

tions will be put in place to
assure that these shares are
widely disbursed and not
concentrated in the hands of
a few shareholders.
The FNM said that it is
proud of its record in creat-
ing a vibrant shareholding
society, and invited the
Opposition "to match this
record."
"We further invite the
Opposition to offer serious
proposals to advance the
interests of the Bahamian
people rather .than glib and.
unsubstantial statements,"
the party said. ,


Any govt relocating Arawak Cay Port

would have to pay all relocation costs


FROM page one

Assembly yesterday, two penalty
clauses have been added in the
event of such an action. -
Clauses 5.1.9, and 5.1.10 explain
that if the port and depot lease for ,
the APD were to be broken prior
to its 45-year lease, "the govern- .'.
ment will reimburse to APD all
its reasonable relocation costs," -
and "compensate,APD for all
buildings, leasehold improvements
and immovable equipment at the
Arawak Cay Port and/or Glad-
stone Road Depot as the case may
be at the greater of their net book
value or fair market value."
Calling these line items "uncon-
scionable," Opposition MP Ryan RYAN
Pinder said these clauses are
included to act as an' "impediment to any
change in opinion" that any subsequent gov-
ernment may have.
Although stressing the PLP will govern
under the rule of law, Mr Pinder said they
also will be mindful of any unconscionable
provisions in "this agreement."
Mr Pinder added that the PLP was also trou-
bled by a number of other aspects of the
MOU, particularly that clause 4.3 gives the
private shareholders who would only own 40
per cent.of the company the majority of the
seats and the chairmanship of the board while
the government would only get one, and the
public no seats at all.
Mr Pinder said that with a public-private
sector agreement like this, there should be a
scenario where the government and the APD
get three seats each, while the public share-
holders get the final board seat.
"Why the public cannot have a say at the
board level does not make sense to me," the
Elizabeth MP said.
"This entire document is a document for
the sole purpose to ensure that these private


S P


sector special interest groups
make money. There are provi-
sions in here that say that the
board of directors can change
prices to guarantee a 10 per cent
return. There's provisions in here
that effectively make this a 90-
year agreement a 45-year term,
plus a 45-year option.
"So everything in this document
ensures that the private share-
holders make a profit and are pro-
tected. You have this very uncon-
scionable provision that protects
this port for 20 years, there cannot
be another port established in
Nassau or 20 miles from the
shoreline of Nassau for 20 years.
That seems to be another uncon-
INDER scionable provision.
"Who is to say that another
port in Carmichael would not be
a good idea to service other countries? With
this type of provision it is very narrow-minded
in that either you don't believe in the eco-
nomic expansion of the Bahamas and a trade
agenda for the Bahamas because you are iso-
lating yourself to one small port, or it is clear-
ly a provision to protect the private share-
holders in the port," he said.
The Founding Private Sector shareholders in
the APD are as follows: Arawak Stevedoring
Limited, Bahamas Ferries Ltd, Bahamas Hot
Mix Company Limited, Bahamas Marine Con-
struction Company Limited, Bahamas Sea
Lane Company Limited, Bethell Estates Lim-
ited, Betty K Agencies Limited, Blue Flag

ment has signed with Cable & Wireless for
the sale of 51 per cent of BTC," said Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham during a brief sit-
ting of Parliament yesterday.
When contacted for commerit, Bahamas
Inl Communications and Public Officers Union
President Bernard Evans said he "could care
less" that the long-awaited documents will be
made public today.
Mr Evans represents line staff at the state-
run company and since the MoU was signed
has led a charged debate against the looming
sale.
He added that he and Bahamas Communi-
cations and Public Managers Union President
V illiam Carrbll were invited to meeting with
SY the government set for 9am in their capacity as
members of the Privatisation Advisory Com-
mittee. Up to press time, the union heads were
unsure if they would attend. He claims the
two were not invited to the committee's last
w meeting.
non "Between now and tomorrow morning we
dl0. will make up our ninds on whether or not we
away will go to the meeting. They want to now
pisode. involve us before they table something in the
House but look at the time, it's the last hour,
what kind of input can we make now?
"I could care less about what's in the MoU.
Our position still stands, if you withheld it all
this time obviously you were not intending
for us to contribute in any. meaningful way.
It's just a rubber stamp."
0* He suggested that the Government will have
a huge price to pay if it goes ahead with its
planned sale.
"If Government goes through with its plan
they have to deal with an entire workforce
that's not harmonious with them, to say the
least. The court case is one arm, I'm glad it's


starting to come to a head where we can
invoke all of those who said they will support
us."
Meantime, parliamentarians are not expect-
ed.to debate the controversial MoU today as
Prime Minister Ingraham has said it will be
put before the Bahamian people two weeks
before any scheduled debate will happen in the
House.
This week, leader of Opposition Business in
the House of Assembly Obie Wilchcombe said
the Progressive Liberal Party is all set to air
concerns over the sale when the MoU is tabled.
Top on the list of the PLP's demands will be to
know what part of the $210 million sale price
is hard currency and whether the sale will sim-
ply move the telecommunications provider
from one monopoly to another.
"We have heard the concerns of the work-
ers, the concerns of the unions, we have seen
what we believe is a draft document of the
Memorandum of Understanding, so we have
been preparing ourselves for whenever the
government brings it to the House," said the
West End and Bimini representative.
"We think the government should not,give
any company 51 per cent," he added.
The MoU was signed with the regional
telecommunications provider in December
causing uproar from the unions representing
BTC workers and the Opposition who accused
the Government of "secretly" negotiating the
deal because the document was not released
immediately.
Umbrella trade unions the National Con-
. gress of Trade Unions of the Bahamas
(NCTUB) and the Trade Union Congress
(TUC) also backed BTC's unions.
In January, the-BCPOU and BCPMU filed
a joint action in the Supreme Court question-
ing the government's right to sell the assets of
the company.

potato chips, tea, hot food
- even socks.
. Tahrir Square, the scene
of deadly battles with fire-
bombs, rocks, horses and
camels just last week, has
taken on a carnival mood
in the past few days as
demonstrators try to estab-
lish an enduring presence,
complete with food and
entertainment, in their
campaign to demand
Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak's ouster.

Paper

Fruit vendor Ashraf
Gaber, 30, asked people to
express themselves in a
few words, then wrote
their thoughts on pieces of
A4 paper he placed on a
stack besides him.
Volunteers added it to a
collage that spread out
before Gaber in a a series
of rows held down by
rocks.
"We have to make the
people happy!" Gaber
shouted. "Express what is
in your hearts!" he told the
crowd.
"Oh Mubarak, you are a


shoe!" read one a par-
ticularly stinging insult in
Arab culture.
"An Interior Ministry of
Thugs!" read another.
Nearby, crowds of young
men and women cheered
and sung as Fadi Mikhael,
29, strummed an oud or
Arabic lute to a West-
ern beat.
"We won't be quiet!
Raise your voice!" he sang
on a stage, his voice ampli-
fied by four powerful
speakers. The crowd
clapped and repeated the
chorus.
Poetry writing and
recitation is a popular
Arab pastime, a manifes-
tation of pride in a lan-
guage that's rich with sub-
tle shades of meaning and
unifies a people of differ-
ent ethnic backgrounds
and two major faiths.

Poets
There is a regional satel-
lite television talent show
just for poets -- with.view-
ers in the millions and
others dedicated to poets
mocking each other in
verse.
On another impromptu
stage, a middle-aged man
read poetry into a micro-
phone as another crowd
clapped at his ability to
cleverly rhyme the stanzas.-
"I am a peasant with a
sheaf of wheat/I give it to
the people generously," he
read.
Nearby, demonstrators
used stones, once used to
repel pro-Mubarak sup-
porters, to spell out slo-
gans on the ground.
The command "Leave!"
in Arabic spelled covered a

Egypt's damaged



artifacts to be



restored in days


CAIRO
Associated Press
THE artifacts from the Egyptian Museum
damaged by looters will be restored over the
next five days, the country's antiquities head
said Monday.
Zahi Hawass also said that steps were
being taken to reopen Egypt's famed
archaeological sites, which have been closed
since unrest seized the country two weeks
ago.
During huge anti-government protests
on Jan. 28, looters climbed a fire escape
and broke into the museum, damaging a
number of items, including two mummified
skulls from the Late Period.
Originally the skulls were thought to have
been attached to mummies, but Hawass
said they were being used to test a new CT
scanner and were not from the royal mum-.


my collection.
Among the 70 objects damaged was also
a statue of King Tutankhamun standing on
a panther and a wooden sarcophagus from
the New Kingdom period, dating back more
than 3,000 years ago.
The museum, which is right next to the
massive protests still taking place in down-
town Cairo, is now being guarded by the
army. Initially, when the demonstrations
began, civilians formed a human chain to
protect the building.
The museum is home to the gold mask of
King Tut that draws millions of tourists a
year, and houses thousands of artifacts span-
ning the full sweep of Egypt's rich Pharaon-
ic history.
Hawass also asserted that the nearby
archaeological digs Saqqara, Memphis and
Abu Sir were secure following reports of
looting there.

WEBSITE: CHECHEN
REBEL LEADER CLAIMS
AIRPORT BOMB

MOSCOW
Associated Press
A WEBSITE affiliated
with Chechen rebels has
released a video in which
insurgent leader Doku
Umarov claims responsi-
bility for last month's
deadly suicide bombing
at Russia's largest airport
and threatens more
bloodshed if Russia does
not leave the region.
The Kavkaz Center
website says it received
the video late Monday. It
was not clear when or
where the video was
recorded.
The Jan. 24 attack at
Moscow's Domodedovo
Airport killed 36 people.
Russian investigators say
the bomber was a 20-
year-old man from the
Caucasus region that
includes Chechnya, but
have not released his
name or other details.
"You see this special
operation carried out by
my order ... more special
operations will be carried
out in the future,"
Umarov says in the video,
wearing a camouflage
uniform and a skullcap.
"Among us there are
hundreds of brothers who
are prepared to sacrifice
themselves" in further
attacks, Umarov says in
the video. "We can at any
time carry out operations
where we want."
Over the weekend, the
website released another
video in which Umarov
also threatened more
attacks, saying 2011
would be "the year of
blood and tears."
Chechen rebels have
fought two full-scale wars
against Russian forces
since 1994. Major offen-
sives in the second war
died down about a
decade ago, but the insur-
gency, has continued with
small clashes in Chechnya
and in neighboring Cau-
casus republics.
The rebels have
claimed responsibility for
an array of terrorist ,
attacks, including last
year's double suicide
bombing of the Moscow
subway system that killed
40 people.
Umarov, who seeks to
create a Caucasus emi-
rate independent from
Russia and governed by
Sharia law, said in the
earlier video that he
could call on 50 to 60 sui-
cide bombers if neces-
sary.
The blast at Domode-
dovo, south of the Russ-
ian capital, raised strong
concerns about Russia's
strategy against the insur-
gents and about its ability
to protect against future
attacks. The day after the
bombing, President
Dmitry Medvedev said
that terrorist attacks in
the country increased in
2010, although he did not
cite figures.
The bomb went off in
the waiting hall of the
international arrivals area
at the airport. As in many
other airports, there were
no security procedures to
go through in order to get
into that area.
Medvedev initially
lashed out at airport
management for poorly
guarding the area, but the
airport's operator
responded that the Russ-
ian transport police are
responsible for security in
that part of the airport.
In the next few days,
Medvedev fired several
top transport police offi-
cials and ordered height-
ened security measures at
all the country's main
transport.hubs, including
major railway stations.
as Medvedev was prepar-
ing to speak at the presti-
giods World Economic
For in.Daavos, Switzer-
Iand, were he"ottt i*

that Russia was safe and
attractive.
The bombing forced
him to make an abbrevi-
ated trip to Davos, where
he declared that the
attack would not crush
Russia or its drive for
investment.


UK report: previous govt





backed bomber's release


LONDON
Associated Press

BRITAIN'S previous
government did "all it
could" to help Libya win
the release of the only man
convicted of the Pan Am
bombing in Scotland in
1988, though it insisted the
decision was made entirely
by Scottish officials,
Britain's head of civil ser-
vice said Monday.
However, Sir Gus
O'Donnell, the leader of
the Cabinet Office, also said
he found no evidence that
the central government had
put any pressure on Scot-
tish authorities to grant the
release.
Abdel Baset al-Megrahi,
the only man convicted in
the terrorist attack, was
granted a compassionate
release from a Scottish
prison in August 2009 on
the ground that he was suf-
fering from prostate cancer
and would die soon.
He is still alive.
The bombing of the U.S.-
bound Pan Am jumbo jet
killed 270 people, most of
them Americans, and al-
Megrahi's release has been
criticized by members of
the U.S. Congress.
Prime Minister David
Cameron, leader of the
British coalition goyern-
ment that took power in
May, asked O'Donnell to'
conduct the review.
Cameron has strongly criti-
cized al-Megrahi's release'
in the past.
Cameron's office said he
discussed the issue with
U.S. Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton on Saturday
at a security conference in
Munich and that they had
"strongly agreed" the pris-
oner release was a mistake.
"He was convicted of the
biggest mass murder in
British history, and in my
view he should have died in
jail," Cameron told the


House of Commons.
O'Donnell said British
policy regarding al-Megrahi
developed after former
Prime Minister Tony Blair
negotiated a prisoner trans-
fer agreement with Libyan
leader Moammar Gadhafi
in 2007.
Policy then developed
that the government should
"do all it could" to facili-
tate an appeal by the
[Iibyans to the Scottish gov-
ernment for Megrahi's
transfer to be released
under the prisoner transfer
agreement or on compas-
sionate grounds, O'Donnell
said.
"Nonetheless, once Mr.
Megrahi had been diag-
nosed with terminal cancer
in September 2008, (gov-
ernment) policy was based
upon an assessment that
U.K. interests would be
damaged if Mr. Megrahi
were to die in a U.K. jail,"'
O'Donnell said.
"The development of this
view was prompted, follow-
ing Mr. Megrahi's diagno-
sis of terminal illness, by the
extremely high priority
attached to Mr. Megrahi's
return by the Libyans, who
had made clear that they
would regard his death in
.Scottish custody as a death
sentence and by actual and
implicit threats made of
severe ramifications for
U.K. interests if Mr.
Megrahi were to die in
prison in Scotland."
Blair's successor, Gordon
Brown, met Gadhafi in July
2009, a month before the
release, and had said he
could not interfere in the
Scottish decision, O'Don-
nell said.
The U.S. Senate Foreign
Relations Committee held
hearings last year on
whether the British-based
oil company BP had sought
al-Megrahi's release to help
get a $900 million explo-
ration agreement with


Libya moving. Former BP
Chief Executive Tony Hay-
ward refused to testify
before the committee last
year.
BP has acknowledged
that it had urged the British
government to sign a pris-
oner transfer agreement
with Libya, but stressed it
didn't specify al-Megrahi's
case. O'Donnell said he
found no evidence that BP
pressured the Scottish gov-
ernment to release al-
Megrahi.
"It's clear to me, those
who think theie was some
sort of conspiracy cooked
up between BP, the British
government and the Scots
... that's not right,"
Cameron said.
The bombing aboard the
Pan Am 747 jumbo jet on
Dec. 22, 1988, killed all 259
people aboard the aircraft
and 11 people on the
ground in Lockerbie town,
where much of .the wreck-
age fell.
Al-Megrahi was convict-
ed by a Scottish court in
2001 and sentenced to 27
years in jail.
O'Donnell said Blair's
and Brown's governments
had been "primarily moti-
vated by a desire to build
on previous success in nor-
malizing relations with
Libya and to safeguard the
substantial gains made in
recent years, and specifical-
ly to avoid harm to U.K.
nationals, to British com-
mercial interests and to
cooperation on security
issues."
"The desire to see such a
result developed and inten-
sified over time as Mr.
Megrahi's health declined
and the imminence of his
death appeared greater,"
O'Donnell said.
American Bob Monetti,
whose 20-year-old son
Richard was on the flight,
said Monday he blames
Britain for the release of

the convicted terrorist.
"The Brits seem to be in
fear, of the Libyans because
they have so much business
involved it trumps every-
thing, including justice,"
said Monetti, of Cherry
Hill, New Jersey.
But American Bert
Ammerman, whose brother
Tom was killed in the crash,


said the U.S. also deserves
blame for not doing more
diplomatic work to prevent
al-Megrahi's release in
2009.
"It is a national disgrace
what our State Department
did regarding the release .of
al-Megrahi," said Ammer-
man, of River Vale, New
Jersey.


US to review Sudan terror designation

WASHINGTON [ '
Associated Press I


THE U.S. said Monday it would
recognize an independent Southern
Sudan and review its designation of
Sudan's government in Khartoum
as a state sponsor of terrorism after
that African nation accepted the
south's vote to secede.
Election officials said Monday that
more than 98 percent of ballots in
the Jan. 9 vote were in favor of inde-
pendence, meaning Southern Sudan
will become the, world's newest
country in July.
"I congratulate the people of
Southern Sudan for a successful and
inspiring referendum in which an
overwhelmingly majority of voters
chose independence," President
Barack Obama said in a statement.
"I am therefore pleased to announce
the intention of the United States
to formally recognize Southern
Sudan as a sovereign, independent
state in July 2011."
Obama called it "another step for-
ward in Africa's long journey toward
justice and democracy."
Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton commended the Sudan
government for accepting the out-
come.

Assurance

Clinton said in a statement that
the designation will be lifted if
-Sudapdoes not support terrorism
for the preceding six months and
rvi t will not do so
in future. It must also fully imple-
ment a 2005 peace agreement that
.ded a two-decade civil war
between the north and south that
killed more than 2 million people.
Clinton urged both northern and
southern leaders to continue to work
together toward full implementa-
tion of the peace agreement and
post-referendum arrangements, to
ensure they become two "viable
states living alongside each other in
peace."
The mainly Christian south and

voters, during the second day of the referendum in the suburb of Mandela on the outskirts of the capital Khartoum, Sudan in Jan-
uary. (AP)


mainly Muslim north must still nego-
tiate citizenship rights, oil rights and
border demarcation.

Budget

Virtually all of southern Sudan's
budget comes from oil revenue, and
the north wants to maintain fuel sup-
plies from the south.
Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir,
who has been indicted for war
crimes in the western Sudan region


of Darfur, on Monday backed the
vote results and said he wanted to be
the first to congratulate the south
on their new state.
Obama demanded an end to
attacks on civilians in Darfur. He
said the U.S. supported the aspira-
'tions of all Sudanese, and would
work with the governments of Sudan
and Southern Sudan for a smooth
and peaceful transition to indepen-
dence.
"For those who meet all of their
obligations, there is a path to


greater prosperity and normal rela-
tions with the United States, includ-
ing examining Sudan's designation
as a State Sponsor of Terrorism," he
said.
State Department spokesman P.J.
Crowley told a news conference in
Washington that the government of
Sudan has made clear that it wants
normal relations with the United
States.
Sudan has been on the U.S. list
of states that sponsor terrorism since
1993.

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti
Associated Press
HAITIAN President Rene
Preval will stay in office for
another three months as his
country chooses a successor in a
delayed election, his chief of
staff said Monday.
Chief of Staff Fritz
Longchamp confirmed Preval's
exit date of May 14 in a phone
interview with The Associated
Press following uncertainty
about the Haitian leader's
plans.
Preval's term had been
scheduled to end Monday, but
his successor will not be elected
until Haiti holds a presidential
runoff on March 20. He had
been silent about his intentions
in recent days, leading to
rumors that he might appoint a
temporary successor.
"He will stay in office until
May 14. He will not leave
today," Longchamp said.
An emergency law passed by
members of Preval's former
party in an expiring Senate
allows him to remain in office
for up to three more months


because his 2006 inauguration
was delayed.,
The U.S. and other nations
have signaled they agree with
Preval staying in office for a
few months past the end of his
term to avoid a power vacuum
atop Haiti, where foreign gov-
ernments have collectively
spent billions on recovery
efforts after last year's devas-
tating earthquake and
pledged billions more for
reconstruction.
"I would assume that there
will be greater stability and
more movement on recon-
struction with this situation if
he remained than if he were to
name a temporary successor -
which would clearly be uncon-
stitutional," said Mark Schnei-
der, special adviser on Latin
America for the International
Crisis Group.-
On Monday morning, about
50 anti-Preval demonstrators
protested outside the quake-
destroyed National Palace,
blocking traffic with overturned
trash bins and burning tires. A
crowd of onlookers watched as
protesters hurled rocks and


chanted "Preval is a crook!"
"He must step down to avoid
people getting hurt," said 32-
year-old demonstrator Gardy
Lumas.
The protesters were later dis-
persed by national police.
Preval is deeply unpopular,
especially in urban areas, after
years of continued poverty and
following his perceived inaction
in response to the earthquake.
Last week, Haiti decided to
eliminate Preval's government-
backed candidate, Jude
Celestin, from a presidential
runoff. The decision ended a
standoff with the country's
international partners who
questioned an earlier official'
count showing Celestin had
qualified for the runoff.
Instead, first-place presiden-.
tial candidate Mirlande Mani-
gat will face popular singer
Michel "Sweet Micky" Martel-
ly.
Campaigning for the second
round, originally slated for Jan-
uary, is set to begin Feb. 17.
The final count the naming
of Haiti's next president is
not foreseen until April 16.

Baha Mar's $60-$80m



'big ticket item' boost

* Contractors chief expects 'lot of spin-off' locally
from Convention Centre contract,, thought to be
worth more than $55m awarded by Atlantis
* Says 'everyone has skin in the game' in Bahamian
construction industry
* Training programme set to be 'most successful in

By ALISON LOWE
Business Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net


The inclusion of the "big
ticket item" Baha Mar conven-
tion centre among the projects
that will be built by Bahamian
contractors will create a "lot of
spin-off" locally, the Bahami-
an Contractors Association's
(BCA) president said yester-
day, estimating the contract
would be worth $60-$80 mil-
lion.
Stephen Wrinkle told Tri-
bune Business' that with the
$2.6 billion Cable Beach' rede-
velopment set to feature
200,000 square feet of meeting
space, including a central con-
vention facility, the latter con-
struction was likely to be worth


S more than
the $55 mil-
lion contract
awarded by
K er z ri er
International
for its Phase
III conven-
F tion centre.
Adding
STEPHEN that the Gov-
WRINKLE ernment had
ensured
"everyone
has skin in the game" when it
came to Bahamian involvement
in Baha Mar's construction, Mr
Wrinkle said the convention
centre "has been discussed as a
big ticket item".
Expected to be larger than
Atlantis' conference centre, for


which a $55 million contract
was signed in 2005, Mr Wrinkle
suggested the value of this pro-
ject alone could amount to
between $60 and $80 million
and employ "hundreds" of
Bahamians.
"That alone-is very signifi-
cant, and there'll be a lot of
spin-off from that," said Mr
Wrinkle.
The BCA president praised
the Government for "mandat-
ing" the increase in Bahamian
participation in the construc-
tion work, telling Tribune Busi-
ness that without this having
taken place he would not be so
optimistic about a successful
outcome for the proposed skills

redeveloped area, with each
committing $20 million to the
effort.
This campaign was one of
the changes revealed in the
supplemental Heads' of
Agreement for the $2.6 billion
Cable Beach redevelopment
tabled by the Government in
the House of Assembly, and is
set to start once there has
been "substantial progress
toward" completion of Baha
Mar's redevelopment of the
Cable Beach strip.
"The parties agree that oth-
er owners of resorts in the
Cable Beach area of New
Providence will be invited to
participate in the campaign on
a, match-funding basis in
amounts to be determined by
the Government and such
prospective participants," the
revised Heads of Agreement
said.
And to aid Baha Mar itself,
the Government will commit
$4 million over an eight-year
period, starting with the casi-
no opening, to Baha Mar's


marketing activities.
.Other notable changes
include Baha Mar committing
to an initiative, "including
without limitation loans to
small, independent businesses
to help develop Bahamian
agricultural and fishing indus-
tries". The intention is to fea-
ture the produce and products
in restaurants throughout the
completed Baha Mar resort

Baha Mar and its Chinese partners will make more than $80
million in tax and other payments to the Government and
state-owned entities, Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham revealed
yesterday, including $27 million in Stamp Duty and almost $30
million in business licence fees.
Among the taxes outlined, Mr Ingraham confirmed for the
first time that the China State Construction and Engineering
Corporation (CSCEC) will pay the Government "the usual
sums payable by non-Bahamian companies in respect of projects
undertaken in the Bahamas".
At 1.5 per cent of the contract value $1.95 billion that is a
fee of $29.25 million to flow into the Government's coffers at an
unspecified date.
Meanwhile, Mr Ingraham confirmed the value of the Stamp
Duty to be received by the government in connection with
Baha Mar's financing arrangement as $27 million. That amount
has now been paid to the Public Treasury, according to com-

SHOWTIME: Mark Roberts, owner of Builders Mall, (far right)
introduces two of his staff members, Nathan Ellis (left) and
Basil Evans (centre), to the National Association of Home Builders
show in Orlando, Florida.












TEAMING UP: Mark Roberts (right) of Builders Mall and Charlie Beall
of Clearwater Construction have teamed up to keep the Bahamas on
the cutting edge of construction and build for the future.
BUILDERS MALL owner Mark Roberts, three staff mem-
bers and an associate, appreciating the importance of keeping up
with new technology and innovative products, have recently
returned from the National Association of Home Builders Show.
The internationally recognized show, held in Orlando, Florida,
this year attracted exhibitors from 32 countries with viewers from
91. Mr Roberts, whose Builders Mall includes Tile King, FYP, The
Paint Centre and AC Depot, and Charlie Beall, principal of Clear-
water Construction, stress the importance of attending a show
that is "truly global in scale and impor-
tance." It is a show that not only brings
new products to the market, but gives Staff return
vendors an opportunity to exchange
information of vital importance for the from home
improvement of man's global quality of
life, said Mr Roberts.
"Energy efficient building prac- builders
tices, energy saving appliances and
equipment for the home and business, Show m US
carbon neutral materials for the fabri-
cation of homes and offices along with
time saving practices all contribute to the concept of a greener
future that is a big promotion at the NAHB show," Mr Roberts
said.
The LEED trade name Leader in Environmental & Eco-
nomic Design defines a business that is on the cutting edge of
design and technology in the manufacturing, design and contrac-
tor sectors. Mr Beat's Clearwater Construction, said Mr
Roberts, "is a leader in the field of building 'green.'"
Clearwater Construction is linked to the Oldcastle Group for
the purchase of building materials at the source of production
and the exchange of the latest technology in LEED design and
manufacturing. "Coupled with a partnership with the Builders
Mall group of companies here in Nassau," said Mr Roberts,
"Clearwater Construction has the most extensive access to
building supplies and raw materials at the best possible prices."
Charlie Beall in turn has high praise for the high standards of
the NAHB show. "Bringing the largest manufacturers of build-
ing products and materials together to showcase their newest
lines and latest developments in building trends is very impor-
tant," he said. "It helps the construction industry, it stimulates
consumers and shows a great amount of confidence in the future
upswing in the market."
Mr Basil Evans, a Builders Mall staff member, making his
first visit, described his "fantastic experience of meeting new
vendors and existing suppliers," Mr Evans was amazed to have
access to so many products, services and technologies under one
roof. Nathan Ellis, another Builders Mall staffer, capitalised on
the wealth of information and products. He studied a new exte-
rior finish Biolime to start importing it into the Bahamas.
"The NAHB show," said Mr Roberts, "has played a very big
role in improving the ability of our Bahamian group to supply
quality and green built products in the islands. Bringing knowl-
edge, experience, expertise and new building materials back to
the Bahamas helps Builders Mall and Clearwater Construction
keep the country on the cutting edge and build for 2011 and
beyond.
"Broadening the scope of expertise for Bahamians and com-
peting-on a global scale is the goal," said Mr Roberts.

BTC privatization i

DIU ~ ~~chn rewar roiioiuii yram^^~s^


is 'se

By RICHARD COULSON


H ere are eight sim-
ple reasons why
the Bahamas
Telecommunica-
tions Company (BTC) must go
through the wringer of total
change. I found them one week
day morning by calling these
numbers listed on the 'Service
Page' of the 2010 Directory:
914, Repairs Constant busy
signal. (Yes, 917 did give me
the time of day.)
322-5190, Customer Care
Department No answer, fax
signal sounds.
394-7616, Wireless Services -
No answer after 20 rings.
300-1254, Marketing Depart-
ment Constant busy signal.
394-7685, BaTelNet (Inter-
net Services) No answer after
20 rings.
300-2638, Technical Support
- Constant busy signal.
394-1714, Enterprise Sales -
Number not in service.
225-5282, Help Line -
Answered, but no response giv-
en to accounts query.

Service indeed!
The wringer of change cho-
sen by the Prime Minister is the
sale of 51 per cent of BTC to
Cable & Wireless Communica-
tions (CWC). Opposition to
this course has sprung from
many quarters, some intelligent,
others hysterical. In the latter
category can be found our King
of Bombast, PLP chairman
Bradley Roberts, who without a
shred of evidence claims that
"someone" is getting a 3 per
cent finder's fee from the CWC
deal, resulting from a 'bogus'
privatization process. The
unsinkable Punch columnist,
Niki Kelly, is another member
of this faction. Seeking a new
catlse after hetfiled campaign
to torpaidoBaha Mar, she has-
str(tiFJ56gethet a farrago of
irrelevant claims about conflicts
of interest, job advertisements,
and timing of bids. So CWC did
not submit before the original
bid deadline. So what? After
Julian Francis' and the Privati-
sation Committee found all the
submitted bids (including one
Bahamian) inadequate, why
should they not invite a pro-
posal from a new party?
Neither of these two "opin-
ion-leaders" put forth any pos-
itive views about what should
be done with BTC, but simply
attacked CWC. Presumably
they believe our telephone
company does not a need a new
owner, and can simply be left in
the.hands of present Govern-
ment-controlled management,
which has had 40 years to fix
the service failings listed above
- and many others known to
any telephone user.
Other opponents of the sale
take a more thoughtful
approach. Shayne Davis, in a
lengthy letter to The Tribune,
does not object to privatisa-
tion but insists that it must be a
Bahamian privatization. The
crux of his argument is that
"there are enough talented and
serious Bahamians, and enough
capital around, to get a local
group in place who will
improve the fortunes of BTC".
This is an unrealistic view of
what makes for an effective
company. A long and coherent
history of corporate teamwork
and expertise is needed, not
simply a cobbling together of
money and miscellaneous indi-
viduals, no matter how "talent-
ed" and well-intentioned.
A similar approach was tak-
en by Bernard Evans, president
of the Bahamas Communica-
tions and Public Officers
Union, accepting that some
form of privatization was
inevitable and desirable.
In the course of a long and
friendly interview, he had plen-
ty of criticism for the BTC
Board of Directors for holding
back progress, and gave his own
vision of the company's future.
He drew me a diagram show-
ing that the Government should
retain ownership of infrastruc-
ture, and that four privately-
owned companies should be
created, each separately taking
on the service functions of land-
line, mobile, data, and Inter-
net.
It's an intriguing prospect
that might work in an ideal
world, but the actualities of
Bahamian management and
finance would impose inter-
minable delays in creating such


a complex structure.
And, of course, he remains
implacably opposed to CWC.
Without using any of the lame
and emotive, jingoistic phrases
such as "working for our colo-
nial masters" or "becoming
slaves of the white man again",
he produced several specific
objections to their controlling
ownership, citing bad labour
policies (the loss in the Privy
Council of an employee com-
pensation case in Antigua), and
a weak financial position, cit-
ing a "Sell" recommendation.
for the company's publicly trad-
ed shares by a London stock-
broker.
Mr Evans first told me he
would refuse to negotiate with
CWC on labour issues, but
when I pressed him on what he
would do if the transaction was
actually completed, he smiled
and said: "I'll cross that bridge
when I come to it."
CWC is not a perfect com-
pany.

Debt

My own conversations with
independent securities analysts
in the UK and the US revealed
opinions that the group.may
have' excessive debt, may be
unable to.maintain itsnaigrdiv-
-..ide re-
ly fonm"s and,
The'e'effects of thrEetession
throughout the Caribbean.
One analyst remarked on the
loss of cellular phone business
in Jamaica to their more nimble
competitor, Digicel, while
pointing out that recent CWC
management changes should be
able to partially recapture this
loss. David Shaw, CWC's chief
executive for the Caribbean
area, admitted to me that
Jamaica had been a sore spot
where they had learned a les-
son.
But against these few nega-
tives must be balanced the fac-
tors that make CWC the -best
candidate to take control of
BTC. Larger and stronger tele-
coms companies, such as Veri-
zon in the US, or Telefonica in
Spain and Latin America, have
shown little interest in the
Caribbean and have no track
record in the region. CWC was
created in March 2010 as a sep-
arate company, quoted on the
London Stock Exchange, when
it took its long-existing inter-
national operations and split
them off from the parent UK
company that does a very dif-
ferent type of business.
CWC's international range
is impressive. With ultimate
headquarters in London, it
operates through four semi-
autonomous divisions:
Caribbean (now re-branded as
'LIME'), with about 34 per cent
of group revenues totaling $1.16
billion; Panama, about 25 per
cent; Monaco and various
island nations, about 25 per
cent; and Macau, about 15 per
cent. The cross-fertilization of
ideas, technology and human
expertise among these varied
markets would be hard to
match, certainly not by any
stand-alone Bahamian compa-
ny, as urged by local enthusi-
asts. In the Caribbean, CWC
operates in 13 national markets,
competing in all of them, and in
all cases dominant in landliiie
networks.
This structure permits CWC
to undertake inter-island pro-
jects such as submarine cables,
the latest one linking Jamaica
and islands of the eastern
Caribbean. The group's size
provides it with advanced tech-
nology and volume discounts
that will reduce the high prices
for products and services now
paid by BTC customers.
CWC has had periodic
labour problems, but has
always continued to negotiate
with the unions, and none of
its Caribbean markets experi-
ence crippling shutdowns or


nationwide strikes arising from
telecoms disputes. Naturally,
control by CWC will involve
some personnel changes and
downsizing at BTC, but nothing
like the mass dismissals warned
by our nay-sayers. As pointed
out by Mr Evans, the average
age of BTC employees is 47, so
many of them will soon be eli-
gible for early retirement.
Senior management has been
working amicably on due dili-
gence details with visiting CWC
executives and technical experts
for over a month to plan an
easy transition.
As in neighboring coun-
tries, CWC will follow the sen-
sible practice of retaining man-
agement familiar with our spe-
cial Bahamian marketplace,
while importing foreign staff
with special expertise not yet
available here.
Much criticism has been
made of the $210 million price
for 51 per cent as a 'give-away',
unfair to the Bahamian people.
In 2009, the latest reported fis-
cal year, BTC's net income was
roughly $48 million. Some 51
per cent of that amount is about
$25 million, giving an acquisi-
tion price/earnings ratio of
8.4X, which is a fair figure for
an overstaffed company that
will only enjoy its cellular
monopoly status for another
three years.
Would any Bahamian
investor pay more than 8.4X if
he were offered the shares
today?
Theoretically, the deal could
be stopped in its tracks if the
courts support the injunction
filed by Mr Evans' union. But
that appears unlikely, since I
understand it's based on the
eccentric theory that the Gov-
ernment has no authority to sell
its shares a position that would
virtually paralyze the sover-
eign powers of the State. The
threat' of a general strike
uttered lMr Evans and other
union leaael as Rt, credible.
A general strike,: bringing the
economy to a dead halt, can
only succeed if backed by the
populace as whole. It's pretty
clear that the Bahamian pub-
lic, chronically dissatisfied with
BTC, is not going to jeopardise
the national welfare just to save
the jobs of a few hundred union
members and glorify Bradley
Roberts.
The issue will be decided,
quite rightly, in the political are-
na. Presumably Mr Ingraham's
iron control of his party will
result in the FNM majority win-
ning the crucial vote in the
House of Assembly. Mr Ingra-
ham is in a hurry, understand-
ably, to close this long-fester-
ing issue on his watch before
next year's election, and has no
interest in a late search for a
company to replace CWC.
Buried deep in BTC's glossy
Annual Report, a dry financial
item reveals how the Govern-
ment has used the company, for
political purposes. In 2009,
BTC paid dividends of nearly
$96 million (twice what it
earned) to 'the Shareholder'
(i.e. Government). Of this
amount nearly $16 million was
not paid in cash but as 'Settle-
ment of Receivables', a polite
way of describing the write-off
of uncollectible telephone bills
owed by dead-beat Govern-
ment agencies or political pals.
Under private ownership, this
type of shady cronyism should
become a thing of the past.


Teams with American Airlines and international partner

to offer airline travel miles in return for shipping dollars

HANDS-0N
APPROACH: Pictured
from Lto R are
Santi Gabin0, Laser
International; Betty
Wilson, American
Airlines; and Elvin
Taylor, The Mailboat
Company.


The Mailboat Company
hosted Laser Freight Transport
International and American
Airlines at the launch of its
Miles for Dollars Campaign, an
initiative designed to reward its
shipping clients with airline
travel miles.
Laser International Freight
Transport is the international
shipping side of the Mailboat
Company, and for every dollar
a customer spends when ship-
ping with Mailboat and Laser,
they receive travel miles with
American Airlines.
"This comes at a perfect
time, seeing that we have just
recently completed our inland
terminal here at this new facil-
ity," said managing director for
The Mailboat Company, Elvin
Taylor, at the launch, which was
held at the company's new
inland terminal facilities at
Oakes Field.
"So it's a pleasure that this
wonderful promotion is intro-
duced to the Bahamian people.
This promotion will enable per-
sons to receive advantage miles
on American Airlines for goods
shipped %ia Miami, FortLaud-
erdale, and now ourn-ew addi-
tional drop-off point in Orlando
Florida."
Betty Wilson, American Air-,
lines representative said: "It is
definitely an auspicious occa-
sion for us to be partnering with
Laser. This is a part of our cus-
tomer service initiatives, and
we look for any opportunity to
expand our brand with over 30
years of service in the Advan-
tage Program.
"It is definitely a great day
for us in Nassau andglobally.
We.service over six destinations
here in the Bahamas and, of
course, we have millions of par-
ticipants in the Advantage Pro-
gram. So we are delighted to
have Laser partner with us in
this regard."
American Airlines is the
world's second-largest airline
in passenger miles transported,
passenger fleet size and oper-
ating revenues. It is a subsidiary
of the AMR Corporation and is
headquartered in Fort Worth,
Texas.
"We are excited about this
particular miles for dollars pro-
gramme because it enables our
clients to receive mileage from
any cargo shipped via Laser or
Mailboat," said Santi Gabino,
Laser's representative. "With
every dollar spent with us, the
clients will receive miles with
American Airlines and, as the
program works out, they are
not only able to ship their
goods in an economical way but


they will also receive airline
mileage as they travel to the
US to purchase those goods."
Mr Gabino said a new auto-
mated service cuts out the clien-
t's wait for their Bills of Laden
to arrive to confirm costs.
"The moment a Bill of
Laden is cut electronically, a
client is notified via telephone
and an e-mail is sent out as well.
This notification includes Bill
of Laden, the name of the ves-
sel carrying the goods as well
as any amounts that are due on
the Bill of Laden," he added.


Laser International Freight
Transport is a consolidator of
air and ocean cargo with more
than 28 years of experience
handling international cargo
and warehouses in the heart of
the Miami International Air-
port Cargo Area.
The Mailboat Company's
new offices are located at the
junction of Horseshoe Drive,
College Avenue opposite Far-
rington Road, away from the
hustle and bustle of traffic. The
building boasts a 10,000 square
feet warehouse.

Friday D-Day for $12m AML offer

FROM page 1B
ness yesterday.
Expressing confidence that Mr Finlayson's so-called 'hos-
tile takeover' would not succeed (see other story on Page
1B), Dionisio D'Aguilar told this newspaper he had been
informed by the Securities Commission of the Bahamas that
the acquiring group 1had 10 working days from the announce-
ment of its bid to issue documents setting out all relevant
details to AML Foods' 1300 shareholders.
Given that Mr Finlayson and his investment vehicle, Trans-
Island Traders, unveiled their $12 million offer on Monday, Jan-
uary 31, this gives them until Friday, February 11, to meet the
10-day deadline which Mr D'Aguilar said had been outlined by
the Securities Commission.
Once Mr Finlayson's tender offer is in play, Mr D'Aguilar
said AML Foods' Board of Directors had the right to issue
Directors' Circular detailing its thoughts on the bid and its
details, something he said would "absolutely" happen.
The tender offer, the AML Foods chairman added, would
remain open for 20 working days, after which Mr Finlayson and
Trans-Island Traders had the option to either acquire the
shares tendered (something he will almost certainly do if the 51
per cent threshold is met) or reject them.
"We were told by the Securities Commission that it had to be
in by Friday," Mr D'Aguilar said of the Finlayson tender offer-
's release. "They have 10 days from the day they made the ini-
tial announcement, so the tender document is supposed to
come out on Friday. That's 10 business days.
"Then, I believe the share offering remains open for 20 days,
and then they have the right to take up the shares or not take
up the shares. There's no guarantee they'll take it up. They have
the right to actively refuse the offer."
The AML Foods chairman indicated the Securities Com-
mission wanted to adopt strict deadlines and timescales to
avoid any unnecessary, long-lasting impact on the market for
the company's shares as a result of the takeover bid, which Mr
Finlayson has branded as "definitely not hostile". '
After the tender offer documents are issued, AML Foods
then has the right to respond, commenting on aspects of the bid
and telling shareholders whether it thinks they should accept or 4
reject it.
"The Board'has a right to issue a Directors Circular which
outlines what we think of the offer is the price reasonable, and
other aspects, such as whether there's good management, is the
business plan in the right direction etc.... We have the right to
respond," Mr D'Aguilar said.
Telling Tribune Business that the Board would "absolutely"
respond to the details of Mr Finlayson's offer when they were
released, he added: "We'll harp oi,about the factors already
outlined. They are only tendering for 51 per cent of the shares,
not 100 per cent, so investors will be left as a diluted minority
in a company with untried and unproven management.

Outline

"We'll outline what we're doing well and the fact we're
making a profit, and that much of the management has been in
this business for 10-20 years. At that time, we'll also evaluate the:
price" Mr Finlayson is offering, that of $1.50 per share, a 44.2
per cent premium to yesterday's $1.04 close.
Philip Stubbs, the Securities Commission's chairman, declined
to discuss specifics on the AML Foods takeover offer when con-
tacted by Tribune Business yesterday, but said the process
would adopt "best practices" from the draft Takeover Code.that
the regulator would shortly issue to the capital markets indus-
try for consultation.
"What I can say is that the Commission has been in dia-
logue with the group making the offer bid, and been in dialogue
with the company that is the target," he said. "We're discussing
with both groups best practices from the draft Takeover Code
that we are getting ready to introduce for consultation in the
local market, which will be implemented as part of the Securi-
ties Industry Act. We are using these methods for this particular
situation as a guide."
Acknowledging that the absence of a Takeover Code had
previously impacted investor protection, particularly minority
shareholder rights, in the Bahamian capital markets, Mr Stubbs
told Tribune Business that "it's very, very important" to intro-
duce-such guidelines.
"As you are aware, Takeover Codes, wherever they do exist,
are usually the best way to regulate these transactions, where
you have a substantial amount of shares involved in an offer or
bid for a public company," he explained. "It is one way of
having rules to ensure fair and equitable dealings.'
"The fact we have not had one creates situations where you
do not have protective rules or guidelines to follow, especially
in the protection of shareholders, and particularly the minori-
ty shareholders.
"We want to have an environment to encourage people to
participate in the capital markets. That is part of the mandate
of the Securities Commission to ensure fair and equitable deal-
ings."
The Takeover Code is being introduced in conjunction with
the reformed Securities Industries Act and accompanying reg-
ulations, which were tabled in the House of Assembly pre-
Christmas. Mr Stubbs said the Securities Commission had
been informed that debate on the legislation might start this
month.
Acknowledging that the Bill and regulations would bring
the Bahamas into compliance with international best practices
and standards, the Commission chairman said: "It is an Act that
enables a lot of provisions and responds to current principles
and objectives in running capital markets.
"The Act itself responds to the current provisions of JOSCO
[the global securities regulatory body]. It is important to bring
our securities laws and regulations up to modem standards. The
Act has been tabled, and the Government has committed and
recognied it needs to, give priority to getting it legislated."

BTC blasts URCA'double standards'


FROM page 1B

there was a regulatory "level playing
field" between itself and BISX-listed
Cable Bahamas as Significant Market
Power (SMP) operators, contrasting the
"sliding scale" imposed on the latter with
the requirement that it instantly unbun-
dle its own broadband Internet offering
from its phone services.
As Tribune Business revealed last
week, Cable Bahamas has been given
until end-2013 to complete the, 100 per
cent separation of its cable TV and Inter-
net products on New Providence and
Grand Bahama, something Mr Johnson
yesterday described as fundamentally
unfair, arguing that the BISX-listed com-
pany had not complied with its SMP
obligations and should not be allowed
to. enter other markets.
He added that'the extended time peri-
od given to Cable Bahamas to unbundlee'
those services would "stifle" consumer
choice and the arrival of new competition
into those markets, since for two years
new and existing Bahamian customers
would be required.to take both services
even though they may only want one.
Describing the decision by the Utilities
Regulation & Competition Authority
(URCA) as "outrageous", Mr Johnson
told Tribune Business: "We have been.
complaining for some time. We can't
understand why Cable Bahamas has
been given this sliding scale going on for
two years, which seems to us goes against
consumer choice and competition, which
is URCA's primary mandate.
"If it's good for us as an SMP player in
this market, it should be applied to oth-
er SMP operators. I don't think that's
unreasonable. That's why this particular
decision has left us perplexed.
"If everybody plays by the same rules,
BTC has no objection. We want to
ensure a level playing field, and that car-
riers with the same SMP designation and
obligations are held to the same stan-
dards."
BTC, he added, was now petitioning
URCA to obtain a "better understand-
ing" of the reasons for its decision on
Cable Bahamas.
BTC's argument is that while it was
immediately forced to untie its broad-
band DSL Internet service from its
phone products, Cable Bahamas has
been given much greater latitude in'com-
plying with its SMP obligations, thus
leading to its charge that the latter is get-
Sting off 'lightly', while it is subject to a
'heavy-handed approach' by URCA.
'_Tribune Business reported on Friday
that Cable Bahamas had to i.m-f-ete th&e
unbundlingg' of its cable TV and Internet


products, at 20 per cent of its New Prov-
idence nodes, plus 10 per cent of its
Grand Bahama nodes and 15 per cent
of those in Abaco and Eleuthera, by end-
2010. It successfully met this, enabling it
to meet the SMP obligations.
Cable Bahamas has to complete
unbundling at 45 per cent of New Provi-
dence nodes by end-December 2011,
achieving 75 per cent by end-2012 and
100 per cent at end-December 2013.
On Grand Bahama, the 2011 target is
30 per cent, with the 2012 and 2013
thresholds 70 per cent and 100 per cent.
For Eleuthera and Abaco, the job is sup.-
posed to be 50 per cent complete this
year, and concluded in 2012.
Mr Johnson yesterday told Tribune
Business that while Cable Bahamas was
the "dominant player" in broadband
Internet, for two years a significant num-
ber of Bahamians would also be forced to
take its cable TV services to access this
product, even though they may not want
the latter. This, he added, "stifles" com-
petition-in both markets.
BTC, Mr Johnson said, had to spend
significant "man hours and money" on
unbundling its own products, something
it accepted it had to do.
"We're perplexed 'and cannot under-'
stand the rationale," he told Tribune
Business, adding that the situation gave
BTC "pause" before it looked at expand-
ing into other markets it was not already
in.
"Our prominent concern is that there,
is equitable treatment based on the stan-
dards implemented, by URCA itself, he,
told this newspaper.
In a statement, Mr Johnson said: "We"
find it impossible to find even a remote-
ly digestible justification for this ruling on
the part of URCA. It is wholly incon-
%ist0 with URCA'sttiafed-miandate in
respect of customer choice and its prece-


dents in respect of the treatment of com-
panies with significant market power
(SMP) within the Bahamas.
"Simply put: It is outrageous! What is
happening is that Cable Bahamas has
been granted an additional two years to
ensure that any one. of its customers can
buy Internet services from that company
[has] to buy cable television services.
"At the same time, the regulator some
two years ago insisted that BTC sepa-
rate its Internet service from basic phone
service a requirement that BTC com-
plied with. Why the double treatment?
Why must those consumers who only
want Internet service be forced to buy
cable television service from Cable
Bahamas, while at the same time BTC is
forced, to provide its Internet and tele-
phone services separate and apart. It is
an egregious decision.
"While URCA accepts that Cable
Bahamas maintains SMP in the provi-
sion of basic Internet service, the regu-
lator has willingly been complicit in per-
mitting Cable Bahamas to use this posi-
tion to force'its customers to buy a tele-
vision service that the customer may not
want.
"This is not fair to those consumers
who only want to buy a single service, nor
does it help develop the market place
for broadcast television. Hard as we fry,
we cannot" find a single solitary angle
that would give.justification to this
action."
Mr Johnson added: "It is our view that
the provisions in the regulatory regime
suggest that BTC and the other licensed
operators should have been given the
opportunity to assess the impact of the
generous concession granted to Cable
Bahamas with respect to the untying of
its broadband service from pay televi-
sion while it was still in the draft stage.
."Why is it that BTC and other opera-
tors in the market did not have an oppor-
tunity to respond to these incredibly gen-
erous allowances to.the dominant player
in the broadband and broadcast televi-
sion market?"
And Mr Johnson said: "BTC is sim-
ply fed up with this double standard
:being exhibited by URCA in its dealing
with BTC vis-a-vis Cable Bahamas. We
both have reasonably been deemed dom-
inant players in the various segments of
our market, and with that has comethe
Significant Market Player [SMP] desig-
nations and obligations. '"And while
BTC has expended significant resources
to date in its efforts to comply with its
SMP obligations, it seem pretty clear to
us that Cable Bahamas has been given a
free.ride, despite the fact that they had
and have fewer obligations to satisfy the
regulatory when compared to BTC."


AML OVERLY CONFIDENT' ON TAKEOVERBID DEFEAT


FROM page 1B

Tribune Business that the
company would "put. down
this takeover bid once and for
all".. .
Speaking to Tribune Busi-
ness, Dionisio D'Aguilar was
at pains to reassure AML
Foods' small retail investors
that they would not be aban-
doned by the company's larg-
er investors, saying they had
"nothing to fear" and "that
'under-no circumstances"
would the company's, main
shareholders countenance a
management/control change.
"We are overly confident
that the Finlayson group will
not achieve their goal," Mr
D'Aguilar told Tribune Busi-
ness. "We haven't been idle.
We've been polling our share-
holders, talking to our share-
holders and garnering their
intentions as to what they will
do.
"The overwhelming major-
ity of the feedback from the
vast majority of our large
shareholders is that under no
circumstances do they want
there to be a change in man-
agement."
And the AML Foods chair-
man added: "We are taking
steps to ensure we put down
this attempt to seize control of
the company, and when we
put it down we put it down
once and for all, so it's never
coming back."
This, Mr D'Aguilar said,
was intended to ensure that
Mr Finlayson, even if he
acquired a major interest but
not a controlling one, ulti-
mately did.not achieve his


goal through steadily buying
out other investors over time.
Mr D'Aguilar's comments
are the latest salvo in an
intensifying public relations
battle between AML Foods
and Mr Finlayson/Trans-
Island Traders, as they seek to
convince the BISX-listed
'company's 1300 shareholders
of the respective merits of
their case.
Both sides are moving
down the shareholder regis-
ter, meeting with and calling
AML Foods' investors, espe-
cially the major ones, to learn,
their intentions. towards Mr
Finlayson's offer, which at
$1.50 per share is offering a
44.2 per cent premium to yes-
terday's $1.04 close.
Spotting that AML Foods'
shares are undervalued, Mr
Finlayson and his advisers at
RoyalFid'elity and CFAL
sense an opportunity to
achieve long-awaited, and
much-needed, consolidation'
in what is'an over-saturated
Bahamian food retailing mar-
ket by combining AML
Foods with Trans-Island
Traders' 78 per cent stake in
City Markets and creating a
merged player that would
have the opportunity to lever-
age economies of scale for
greater margins'.
Mr Finlayson is thus seek-
ing to achieve his expansion
plans via acquisition rather
than organic growth, some-
thing that would enable him
to 'shelve' plans for a City
Markets Super Centre on the
East-West Highway, given the
location's proximity to the
existing AML Foods'
Solomon's Super Centre near-


by. However, Mr D'Aguilar
and AML Foods manage-
ment have countered by-
banging on about the "untried
and unproven management"
team and strategy that, at
least in the food retailing busi-
ness, Mr Finlayson brings with
him. .
The AML Foods chairman
reiterated that theme yester-
day, telling the' company's
small retail investors that they)
had "absolutely nothing to
fear", and that the larger
investors would hot abandon
them and leave them at the
mercy of a new owner.
"I want all the sharehold-
ers of AML Foods to rest
assured that the majority of
shareholders are very happy
with current management,
and have no desire whatsoev-
er to allow their company to
fall into the hands of an
untried and unproven man-
agement team," Mr
D'Aguilar told Tribune Busi-
ness. ,
He added that it would "be
a different ball game" if Mr
Finlayson and his City Mar-
kets management team had
"a couple of years experience
under their belts" in the
Bahamian food retailing.
industry, yet they had been in
charge 'of their current com-
pany for barely three months.
If they had experience,
"this would be a much more
credible tender offer", Mr
D)'Aguilar added, saying:
"But, right now, they started.
in the food business three
months ago. Are you going
to entrust 51 per cent of your
shares to someone who start-
ed in the food business three
months ago? A lot of people,
irrespective of the price, don't
feel comfortable selling their
shares...."
Tribune Business, though,
understands that some of
AML Foods' larger share-
holders responded positively
to the initial feelers.put out
by Mr Finlayson and Royal-
Fidelity, only to get cold feet
when they realized the impli-
cations of the deal and their
duty to act 'in absolute fair-
ness' towards minority


investors. This was when Mr
Finlayson went away and was
told to prepare the tender
offer.
This newspaper under-
stands that around 60-66 per
cent of AML Foods lies in the
hands of just 21 shareholders,
with the larger ones Craig
Symonette, Frank Crothers,
William Saunders and
Franklyn Butler Jnr thought
to collectively own in the high
30 per cents to low 40 per
cents of the company. This
makes these 21 shareholders
potentially key to what hap-
pens, and many may hold out
for more than the $1.50 that
Mr Finlayson is offering.
It is possible that Mr Fin-
layson and Trans-Island
Traders may employ a 'bot-
tom up' type of offer, where
they tender to buy 100 per
cent of the shares owned by
AML Foods investors below a
certain threshold, but the con-
tents of the tender document
- and their intent are
presently unknown.
Meanwhile, Mr D'Aguilar
urged AML Foods investors
not to "jump ship" on fears
that the larger shareholders
may exit, and added: "I want
to assure everyone that the'
larger shareholders in this
company ,are committed to
our current management, and
have no intention at this time
to sell their shares.
"Those people getting wor-
ried that if .the big boys go, I
should-go, let me tell them
that the big boys are quite
adamant and very determined
to retain control of the com-
pany........The best thing for
people to do is stick with cur-
rent management, because
they will realise far more val-
ue than this tender offer."
The AML Foods chairman
added: "We've got a good
business plan, and expect
results to improve in the
fourth quarter. Last year was
a difficult year, as it was for
City Markets. We have
clawed back, and our sales for
the full year came in at less
than 2 per cent down on last
year, so we were happy with
our performance."

. would go to Bahamian con-
tractors.
"That previously never hap-
pened, and it's one of reasons
that most training programmes
have faltered," suggested Mr
Wrinkle.
Addressing the House of
Assembly yesterday, Prime
Minister Huberty Ingraham
described for the first time
some of the 'core project' work
that Bahamian contractors and
sub-contractors will be offered
the opportunity to bid upon
during the life of the Cable
Beach redevelopment project.

Negotiate
Whereas Bahamians were
previously only to work on the
non-core" components of the
project, Mr Ingraham high-
lighted the fact that his govern-
ment was able to last year nego-
tiate a further $200 million of
contract work to go to Bahami-
an construction firms, bringing
the total value of work t6 go to
Bahamians to $400 million the
largest amount ever in a single
development in the Bahamas.
He said his government is
"satisfied" work will be appor-
tioned between "large, medi-
um, small scale and individual
Bahamian contractors".
Mr Ingraham said that
prime core project packages
to be made available to
Bahamian contractors' bidding
will include, but not necessarily
be limited to", core project site
work (for example, demolition
' of existing buildings, under-


* Child Care available


buildings" will extend to "full
scope (work), including struc-
tural, masonry or envelopes,
full interior fit-out, mechanical,
electrical and plumbing", said
Mr Ingraham.
Landscape and irrigation
work, "which is substantial",
said Mr Ingraham, will be bid
,to Bahamian contractors, as will
"site wide concrete, pavers, spe-
cialty walks and pool decks".
Inside the hotel towers,
"numerous restaurants and
retail shops" will be made avail-
able for bid by Bahamian gen-
eral and sub-contractors for "fit
out, including mechanical, elec-
trical, plumbing, kitchens and
full finishes", added the Prime
Minister.
"This is in, keeping with my.
government's commitment to
the deepening and broadening
of economic opportunities for
all Bahamians," said Mr Ingra-
ham, reiterating statements pre-
viously made by Mr Wrinkle
than "as many as 4,500"
Bahamians may end up being
engaged in the enormous con-
stfuction project.
Mr Wrinkle, who as presi-
dent of the BCA has previous-
ly expressed the organisation's
"elation" that the amount of
work to be contracted to
Bahamians would be expand-
ed from $200 million to $400
million, said the projects out-
lined by the Prime Minister
during his address to Parlia-
ment are "in keeping with what
we had discussed".
He said it was expected that
most of the work described by

cessful private-public training
initiative that has ever been
undertaken in this country or
the Caribbean".

Training
He said yesterday that Baha
Mar had appointed a training
program liaison officer within
its management team, and the
BCA is confident that the com-
pany "are working as hard as
they can" to get the training
initiative up and running in con-
junction with the BCA, the
Bahamas Technical Vocational
Institute (BTVI) and the
Department of Labour.
"We are well aware that
work is moving forward on this
initiative," said Mr Wrinkle of
the skills program. He noted
that meetings have taken place
between the BCA, Baha Mar
and BTVI, but not yet with the
Department of Labour.
The next step, he said, will
be for the stakeholders to
"meet as a committee to deter-
mine the direction the training
will take".
A key element of moving
ahead successfully is identify-
ing the schedule of works to be
undertaken to ensure that train-
ing is geared towards "deliver-
ing results that are beneficial"
to the contractors who will be
undertaking the works, said Mr
Wrinkle.
"Training has to be specifi-
cally targeted towards the type
of work that will be available
on the Baha Mar project, with a
view to maximising who can be
employed," he added.
"There will be a lot of con-
crete work to begin with. Then,
as the project proceeds, we will
need people trained in roofing
and glazing, and then as it
moves forward there will be the
interior fit out, hanging doors
and installing fixtures. We are
supposed to identify those
items as per Baha Mar's con-
struction schedule, and prepare

Mr Ingraham noted in his
address that Baha Mar and its
general contractor, China State

The program will cover train-

providing that Baha Mar will
establish a permanent "Train-

provide extensive training prior

stoves, fridges and refrigera-
tors. Additional incentives
may also accrue from the
Government's review of the
Timeshare Act.
Baha Mar will pay the Gov-

Obama says White House,





execs must work together


Report Wold Expi WM i ecn ic boon to CalornIia
MOFFETT FIELD, Calif.

Organizers of a bid to bring the World Expo to Silicon Valley in
2020 say the event could generate nearly $450 million in tax rev-
enue, draw 25 million visitors and create 42,000 jobs.
The Bay Area Council, which is spearheading the campaign to
hold the six-month Expo at Moffett Field, released a report over
the weekend. The report says the event would cost about $1 billion
to plan and operate, but would stimulate about $5.6 billion in
economic activity. First Congress would have to renew the United
States' membership in the organization that oversees the Expo.


JIM KUHNHENN,
Associated Press
WASHINGTON

President Barack Obama
prodded American businesses
to do their share to help the
economy, calling on execu-
tives to "get in the game" and
begin investing nearly $2 tril-
lion accumulating on their
balance sheets.
The president, in a speech
Monday to the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce, called for a
cooperative relationship with
the private sector and argued
government and business
have a shared responsibility.
He highlighted new efforts by
his administration to improve
the nation's infrastructure,
invest more on entrepreneur's
and foster greater innovation.
Obama needs the centrist
cloak that the business com-
munity the chamber repre-
sents can offer, as he seeks to
win independent voters for
his reelection bid next year.
The Republican-leaning
chamber can benefit by soft-
ening the sharp edges it devel-
oped fighting Obama's health
care overhaul and tighter
financial rules.
Both sides also need each
other to win on areas of poli-
cy where they share common
interests, such as trade deals.
To a polite, subdued audi-
ence he offered a stout
defense of government regu-
lations, even as he promised
to eliminate those that are too
burdensome. He reached
back to history, invoking Pres-
ident Franklin Delano Roo-
sevelt's outreach to corporate
leaders and evoking the
strains of self-sacrifice
expressed by President John
Kennedy.
"I want to be clear: even as
we make America the best
place on earth to do business,
businesses also have a respon-
sibility to America," Obama
said. "As we work with you
to make America a better
place to do business, ask your-
selves what you can do for
America. Ask yourselves
what you can do to hire
American workers, to support
the American economy, and
to invest in this nation."
Obama said his appearance
at the Chamber was in the
interest of "being more neigh-
borly" literally true as the
trade organization's head-
quarters are so close to the
White House that Obama was
able to walk across the street
to make his comments. His
appearance came as Obama
aims to smooth his relations
with corporate leaders and


Oil prices fell Monday as nm estors

to the U.S. economy.
West Texas Intermediate crude, or
WTI. for March dehlery fell $1.55 to set-
tle at $87.48 a barrel on the Ne" York
Mercantile Exchange. In London. Brent
crude lost 58 cents to settle at $99.25 per
barrel on the ICE Futures exchange.
Violent anti-government demonstra-
tions in Egypt settled down after gov-
ernment officials negotiated on Sunday
with opposition leaders, although man\
protesters still called for President Hos-
ni Mubarek to step down. The lull eased
fears of potential interruptions to crude
supplies from the region.
Egypt controls the Suez Canal and a
nearby pipeline that together carry about
2 million barrels of day from the Middle
East to customers in Europe and Amer-
ica. That compares to about 87 million
barrels consumed worldwide every day.
"The market seems to be developing a
thick skin about the events in the Middle
East in particular," Tradition Energy
analyst Gene McGillian said. "I don't
think there's as much of a worry about
supply disruption."

Sperling, Director of the National Economic Council, listens to Press

President Thomas Donohue. Known for his pugilistic style, Donohue
wasted no time. Come on over, he said.


persuade major businesses to
spend their cash, expand hir-
ing and promote economic
growth.

Feuded

The Chamber and the
White House have feuded
loudly over the past two
years, particularly over the
new health care law and an
overhaul of financial regula-
tions meant to address weak-
nesses that led to the Wall
,Street meltdown in 2008. But
in ithfi'ftermaiath of"ftie
November elections, which
gave Republicans control of
the House, both the White
House and the Chamber have
focused on areas of common
ground, despite their linger-
ing differences.
The speech was highly
anticipated by the business
community. Chamber Presi-
dent Thomas Donohue intro-
duced Obama, saying seats at
the event were "one of the
hottest tickets in town."
Donohue said the business
community had an "absolute
commitment to working with
you and your administration
to advance our shared objec-
tives."
He added: "Our focus is
finding common ground to


ensure America's greatness
in the 21st century."
Obama, who has faced lib-
eral criticism for his overtures
to Republicans and to the
business community, argued
on behalf of the financial reg-
ulation and health care initia-
tive that his administration
pushed through Congress last
year. "The perils of too much
regulation are matched by the
dangers of too little," he said.
He called for changes in the
corporate tax code and
increased exports, but point-
edly warned his audience that
businesses could not translate
those benefits into "greater
profits and bonuses for those
at the top."
"We cannot go back to the
kind of economy and cul-
ture we saw in the years
leading up to the recession,
where growth and gains in
productivity just didn't trans-
late into rising incomes and
opportunity for the middle
class," he said.
Still, the Chamber and the
White House have mutual
interests.
Obama needs the centrist
cloak that the business com-
munity can offer, as he seeks
to win independent voters for
his reelection bid next year.
The Chamber can benefit by


softening the sharp edges it
developed fighting the health
care overhaul and tighter
financial rules.
Both sides also need each
other to win on areas of poli-
cy where they share common
interests.
The Chamber can help the
Obama administration win
congressional support of trade
deals, particularly a recently
renegotiated pact with South
Korea. It can also act as
Republican ballast against the
influence of the conservative
tea party movement.
Both the White House and
the Chamber face Republi-
canr opposition from fiscal
hawks within the GOP to
increased spending on public
works, from roads and bridges
to wireless networks. The
chamber has called for such
spending to be paid for with
user fees, such as a higher
gasoline tax. The White
House has not embraced that
approach, saying only that the
administration wants to cre-
ate an "infrastructure bank"
to attract private capital.
The Chamber, which has
long advocated for changes in
immigration law, could help
Obama by pushing Republi-
cans reluctant to take.up such
a politically charged issue.
Obama cited a recently
finalized trade pact with
South Korea, which is await-
ing ratification by Congress,
as an example of the type of
agreement he would like to
pursue with Panama and
Colombia. But the president
did not specifically detail what
adjustments were still need-
ed in those negotiations to
complete a deal.
After Obama's speech,
Senate Republican Leader
Mitch McConnell pressed for
.action on Colombia and
Panama, saying, "the time for
delay on these two agree-
ments is over."
"It won't be enough for
Republicans and it shouldn't
be enough for the business
community to allow .the
administration's trade agen-
da to start and end with South
Korea," he said. "We should
be passing all pending trade
agreements and inking new
ones on a bipartisan basis -
even when it requires the
president bringing his own
party along."
White House spokesman
Robert Gibbs, pressed to
offer a timetable for those
agreements, declined. "We'd
like to move forward," he
said.
"And those are discussions
that are beginning."

Deterred

In addition a stronger dollar deterred
some buyers. Since oil is priced in dollars,
a stronger dollar makes it more costly
for buyers who use foreign currencies.
Several analysts expect oil prices to
trade in a narrow range over the next
few days, moving on the day's news.


"We feel that this week will be char-
acterized by a drift down in crude prices
on days where either no new tensions
arise or where political progress is per-
ceived," JPMorgan analyst Lawrence
Eagles told clients in a research note.
In other Nymex trading in March con-
tracts, heating oil rose 1.06 cents to settle

AIRLINE STOCKS TRYING

TO PULL OUT OF STALL
DAVID KOENIG,
AP Airlines Writer
DALLAS

Volatile oil prices and mas-
sive storm-related flight can-
celations have helped push
U.S. airline shares down by 10
percent in less than a month.
The stocks rallied Monday,
is oil prices fell and South-
west Airlines Co. reported a
big jump in January traffic.
Southwest said traffic last
month rose 13 percent from a
year ago. A key revenue mea-
surement increased between 8
percent and 9 percent, reflect-
ing higher prices. The report
offered more evidence that
travel demand is rebounding
from the worst of thereces-
Ssion. The news helped South--
west shares rise 2.6 percent,
and other airlines gained too.
The Arca Airline index was
up 1.2 percent on Monday.
That followed a week in
which the index lost 2.6 per-
cent, capping a 10 percent
slide since Jan. 14. Over the
same period, the Standard &
Poor's 500 stock index rose
1.4 percent.
Michael Derchin, an airline
analyst at CRT Capital
Group, said aviation lagged
mostly because of worries
,bout rising prices for fuel.
I ong with labor, it's one of
an airline's biggest expenses.
Since mid-January, oil
prices have stubbornly stayed
near or even slightly above
the $90-a-barrel mark, levels
not seen since 2008. The price
of jet fuel on the spot market
has soared 44 per, a ,...<
past year, to $2.80 a gain,
with most of the increase
coming in the past six months.
The airlines were also hit by
the third major winter storm
this season, causing more than
22,000 flight cancellations last |
week, according to flight
tracking service
FlightAware.com.
The airlines haven't dis-
closed estimates of losses
from all the cancellations, but
Helane Becker, an analyst
with Dahlman Rose & Co.,
'said Monday she estimates
the industrywide loss from
last week's storm at about
$100 million.

Geithner in Brazil to






boost US economic ties


BRADLEY BROOKS,
Associated Press.
SAO PAULO


U.S. Treasury Secretary
Timothy Geithner met with
Brazil's leaders Monday look-
ing to bolster ties before next
month's visit by President
Barack Obama and foster
teamwork on economic issues
such as coinfronting-China on
its currency.
Geithner, taking questions
from economics students in
Sao Paulo, said Brazilian and
U.S. "interests are funda-
mentally aligned" and the
countries have "very similar
interests in what we want to
-build globally."
Economic relations
between the U.S. and Brazil
have frayed in the past few
years. Former Brazilian-Pres-
ident Luiz Inacio Lula da Sil-
va blamed the U.S. and other
wealthy nations for creating
the global financial crisis and
not. doing enough to halt it.
In recent months, Brazilian
Finance Minister Guido Man-
tega blamed both the U.S.
and Chiiia for a global "cur-
fency. wr" tha( has caught
nations 1ike Brazil in an eco-
nomic crossfire by putting
upward pressure on their cur-
rencies. That makes Brazilian
goods less competitive abroad"
and imports more affordable
at home, eating into the
domestic market.
Since President Dilma
Rousseff took office Jan. 1,
however, there are growing
signs in- Latin America's
biggest economy of worries
about losing out to Chinese
products that critics say are
cheap because of China's
refusal to allow-its currency
to appreciate as the market

would dictate. A survey last
week of 1,529 manufacturing
companies in Brazil indicat-
ed 45 percent of them were
losing business to Chinese
competitors within Brazil.
China has surpassed the
U.S. as Brazil's biggest trading
partner. While Brazil main-
tained a $5 billion trade sur-
plus with the Asian giant last
year, it was on the back of
commodity exports, stoking
worries that this is hurting
Brazil's ability to develop its
industrial sector.
Washington-and U.S. com-
panies have long been critics
of Chinese policies that keep
its currency low relative to the
dollar. '
While not naming names,
Geithner made the case for
Brazil to lean toward the U.S.
argument on China's curren-
cy, saying that "there are a
significant number of emerg-
ing economies outside this
region that are running
exchange rate systems that
are designed to try to preserve
undervalued currencies."
"We need to see more
progress toward more flexi-
ble exchange-rate systems
where they're not flexible,"
he added.
In Sao Paulo, Geithnet met
with several business leaders
and spoke with students at the
Getulio Vargas Foundation.
Later, he talked with
Rousseff and other officials
in Brasilia before heading
back to the U.S.
"We are focused on how to
take advantage of this
moment to strengthen our
economic ties between the
U.S. and ... build a more bal-

anced, more stable, stronger

after meeting R.usseff. "We
have a very productive rela-
tionship now and we're going
to build on that."
Erasto Almeida, a Latin
America analyst with the
Eurasia Group, said there has
been a split within Brazil's
government between those
viewing China as a powerful
strategic political partner and
those looking more at eco-
nomic issues, who see it as a
rival.
During Silva's eight years

"Under Rousseff, the more

MORE CONFIDENT

CONSUMERS BREAK

OUT CREDIT CARDS

MARTIN CRUTSINGER,
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON

Americans are putting
more money on their credit
cards after more than two
years of cutting back, a sign
that they are gaining confi-
dence in the economy.
The first increase in credit-
card debt since the financial
crisis hit helped to boost over-
all consumer borrowing 3 per-
cent in December, to a sea-
sonally adjusted annual rate
of $2.41 trillion, the Federal
Reserve said Monday. It was
the third straight monthly
gain.
, Borrowing in the category
that includes credit cards rose
3.5 percent, the first rise since
August 2008. Borrowing on
auto loans increased 2.8 per-
cent.
Mark Zandi, chief econo-
mist at Moody's Analytics,
viewed the gain as an encour-
aging sign that households are
becoming more confident
about the U.S. economy and
jobs. He also said banks are
loosening some lending
restrictions put in place after
the financial crisis.
"The credit spigot is open-
ing," said Mark Zandi,
Even with the December
gains, consumer borrowing is
just 0.7 percent higher than
the more than three-year low'
hit in September. It is 6.6 per-
cent below the high set in July
2008. But analysts predicted
further credit.gains in coming
months.
Theresa Chen, an econo-
mist at Barclays Capital, said
December borrowing was
consistent with the strength
seen in new car sales and
retail sales during the month.
She said the increase also
supported last week's Federal
Reserve survey of bank loan
officers, which showed banks
were starting to relax some of
the tighter standards on con-
sumer loans. She predicted
further gains in overall con-
sumer borrowing in the
months ahead.
Households began borrow-
ing less and saving more as
they started to feel the impact
of the recession, which offi-
cially began in December
2007. As unemployment
climbed, people pulled back
on spending and that slowed
economic growth. Consumer
spending accounts for 70 per-
cent of total economic activi-
ty.
Even if borrowing rises this
year, many economists don't
expect Americans,will borrow
at the pace seen in the middle
of the last decade. During that
period, soaring home prices
made households feel wealthi-
er than they were, and that
encouraged them to borrow
and spend more.
Analysts had expected a
rise in total borrowing in
December, reflecting strength
in auto loans. But they didn't
anticipate a rise in credit card
debt. Both auto sales and
overall retail sales showed
increases in December.

THE RIBNE UESAYFEBRARY8, 011WPAEA9


Observing February as "Heart Month", Tribune Health highlights the experience of the
dean of Hope Academy High who was lucky enough to survive .a serious heart condi-
tion and now encourages others to follow their doctor's orders.


By JEFFARAH GIBSON trocardiograph) done which
Tribune Features Writer showed that his heart was
blocked.


HE said he felt a "pin stick"
pain in his chest but thought
nothing of it; a few minutes later,
68-year-old Arlington King could
hardly breathe and his chest felt
"hard as wood".
After managing to drive him-
self to a nearby clinic, Mr King,
who up until that point had nev-
er experienced heart problems,
was told by doctors that his heart
was blocked.
"I was going to check on my
phone bill. When I arrived at Lit-
tle General I felt a pin stick in
my chest. By the time I got to
Texaco I could not breathe. My
chest was hard as wood and I had
to drive with my mouth open. I
managed to make my way to the
clinic and when I got inside I
couldn't talk. I hit my chest and
the'nurse told them that I was
having complications breathing,"
Mr King, the dean of Hope
Academy High, told Tribune
Health.
A doctor in the emergency
room examined Mr King and told
hiri that his seizures were due to
gas reflux. However, another doc-
tor thought this was a wrong diag-
nosis and told Mr King that he
would not last another minute
without the proper treatment.
Mr King had an ECG (Elec-


"The doctors told me that I had
a half blockage in a quarter of
my heart," he said.

FINANCIAL PROBLEMS

Physicians recommended Mr
King have surgery to remove the
blockage and to have a stem put
in. However, this posed another
problem for the 68-year-old.
"I didn't have any money. I
had already spent money on the
two ECGs which were $500 each
and I had to come up with
$12,000 for the surgery. So I
asked the doctor what was my
chances were without the surgery
and he told me I didn't stand a
chance. But my daughter saw to it
that I got the money for the
surgery and carried out all of the
doctors' instructions. I did every-
thing that they wanted me to do.
I was able to secure the funds,"
Mr King said.
The following week Mr King
was scheduled to have the
surgery. His.chances of surviving
were 50/50, doctors said.
The surgery was scheduled to
take place at Doctor's Hospital,
but as the time came new obsta-
cles cropped up.
"The doctors came in the room


I was in (in the clinic) and they
saw me still there. They asked
the nurses why I wasn't over to
Doctors Hospital yet. And the
nurse shout out, 'he has financial
problems', and that was the most
embarrassing thing because my
daughter had already secured the
funds and paid the hospital," he
said.
When it was time for the anaes-
thetic, Mr King told doctors that
he wished to remain awake
through the entire surgery.
"The doctors told me that I had
a 50/50 chance. So I said if I had a
50/50 chance then I want to see
what was going on. I wanted that
to be my last wish because I did
not want to die. with my eyes
closed. I had made up my mind
that whatever happens, happens."

,SUPPORT

The medical professionals
granted Mr King his wish and his
family showed him support
through it all.
"They numbed the area and I
couldn't feel a thing. But I could
see everything that was going on.
It was an experience that I cannot
express in words and I thank God
for those doctors because they
are smart. Their whole heart, soul
and mind went into what they
were doing. There was a nurse


who was there the entire time
holding my hands through it all
and.I thank them for showing me
the care that they did," he told
Tribune Health.
This occurred three years ago.
Today, at age 71, Mr King is
doing better than ever.
"I am doing great. I am taking
my medication on time, following
the doctor's advice-and doing
what I love and that is teaching,"
he said.
Mr King gave a word of advice
to individuals who might be expe-
riencing a similar situation.
"I would tell people to make
sure you have regular check-ups.
It's important to have family for
support. The main thing is to
know in whom you put your trust.
Make sure you know Christ in
the pardon of your sins. You may
not be as fortunate as me. Fol-
low the doctor's instruction and
do whatever you can do for the
Sir Victor Sassoon .Heart Foun-
dation because you never know
when it might be your time," he
said.
Mr King is currently a teacher
and dean at Hope Academy on
Prince Charles Drive.
He is not the first person in his
family to have a heart condition.
His daughter had heart problems
as a child and underwent four
surgeries at Palm Beach Medical
and Jackson Memorial Hospital.


The doctors told

me that I had a

50/50 chance. So

I said if I had a

50/50 chance

then I want to see

what was going

on. I wanted that

to be my last wish

because I did not

want to die with

my eyes closed. I

had made up my

mind that whatever

happens, happens.

Join the fight against heart disease and have a ball


FEBRUARY is "Heart Month"
and persons all around are wearing
red ribbons and/or "Go Red for
Women" dress pins to symbolise
their support in the fight against
heart disease in general and more .
specifically in women.
In the Bahamas, Heart Month is
being observed by thedSir Victor Sas-
soon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation
with its 47th Annual Heart Ball at
the Sheraton Nassau.
Under the theme, "Saving little
hearts for 50 years, one beat at a
time", the ball will be held on Satur-
day, February 19.
Heart disease is the number one
killer of persons in the Bahamas and
around the world.
Recent vital statistics provided by
the Department of Statistics show 24
per cent of the deaths in the
Bahamas are directly related to heart
disease.
According to the World Health
Organisation, "cardiovascular dis-
MENNE.RaM R r


ease, often referred to as heart dis-
ease, is caused by disorders of the
heart and blood vessels, and includes
coronary heart disease (heart'
attacks), cerebrovascular disease
(stroke), raised blood pressure
(hypertension), peripheral artery dis-
ease, rheumatic heart disease, con-
genital heart disease (heart disease in
babies) and heart failure. The major
causes of cardiovascular disease are
tobacco use, physical inactivity, and
an unhealthy diet."
Prevention, education, early detec-
tion and proper treatment are very
important to the preservation of life,
especially in adults,
For many this simply means quit-
ting smoking, eating right and exer-
cise. But children are a different mat-
ter.
For parents of children with heart
defects the choice to take steps to
preserve their child's life is easy.
However, the process can be taxing
mentally, emotionally, spiritually and

SSS STR SxON


financially.
Without support, a parent is often
left in despair.
The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas)
Heart Foundation's was established
50 years ago with the aim of helping
persons in the Bahamas, who could
. not ordinarily afford heart care, to
obtain it.
Today, the Heart Foundation's
main role is to assist children with
heart repair.
To achieve its goal of assisting par-
ents and children, funds must be
raised. The Foundation relies heavi-'
ly upon the generosity of others to
meet their needs. It accepts dona-
tions and welcome individuals and
organizations to host events, to sup-
port its cause and raise funds. Addi-
tionally, the Bahamas Heart Asso-
ciation seeks to provide round sup-
port.
They raise funds through mem-
bership dues, and take a preventative
approach to heart care in persons of


all ages. The Annual Heart Ball is
the major fund raiser of the Heart
Foundation. It is hosted by a group of
volunteers who aim to raise funds
for heart care and create awareness.
The ball will feature live perfor-
mances by the Ed Brice Orchestra,
the S-G Band (Soulful Groovers)
and the Royal Bahamas Defence
Force Dance Band.
Organisers said there will also be
lots of table prizes, an in-house raffle
and auction with an exclusive collec-
tion from John Bull. One of the high-
lights of the evening will be the pre-
sentation of the Lady Sassoon Gold-
en Heart award.

What are the benefits of a Green Smoothie?


IN our last article, we provided
detailed guidance on how to make a
green smoothie.
Many may still be asking the ques-
tion, 'what's all the hype bout it and
exactly how will this drink benefit me
and my body?'
Well, we're happy to give you some
information to jump start you on your
own research path to finding the
answer to this question.
The bottom line-purpose of drinking
green smoothies is not just to enjoy a
great tasting drink, but to encourage
people to get more greens into their
everyday food lifestyle and to facili-
tate an increase in the nutritional val-
ue we derive from them.
We have already established that
when most of us eat a salad, we don't
normally chew the greens lohg enough
for them to become juice like.
This means we are not breaking
down the cell walls of the greens which
consist'mainly of cellulose, which is
very difficult for our bodies to digest,
so that we can actually access the
dense nutrients that the greens sup-
ply.
As a result, drinking your vegeta-
bles (via blending) can provide more
of their benefits because the blender
assists with the 'chewing' process in
advance (without the loss of fibre),
which allows the greens vital nutrients
to be released and more efficiently
absorbed and digested into the body
than when you eat them.
Of course while -blending greens
makes it easier to consume, and more
fun and more tasty (for some), this
should not replace you eating/chew-
ing them.
Before we get into the specific ben-.
efits, let's give a little green smoothie
history shall we?
In 2004, raw food expert and author
Victoria Boutenko and her family,
though already enjoying a raw food
lifestyle for more than 10 years which
had allowed them.to reverse their most
serious conditions, felt that they still
hadn't realized the most vibrant health
they were looking for.
As a result, Victoria embarked on
finding the 'perfect' human food
lifestyle for her family.
She began by looking for an animal
genetically close to human beings. This
led her to studying the eating habits of
wild chimpanzees who share an esti-


_mated 99.4% of genes with humans,
At the same time they possess an
extremely strong natural immunity to
AIDS, Hepatitis C, cancer, and other
fatal human-illnesses.
She thought that if humans and
chimpanzees share 99.4 per cent of the
same genes; then our food lifestyles
should also be 99.4 per cent similar?
When she compared the two, how-
ever, she found that the opposite was
true.
That is, the Standard American Diet
(SAD) is about 99 per cent different
from that of wild chimpanzees.
Over 50 per cent of most SADs con-
tain cooked carbohydrates such as.
potatoes, bread, pasta and rice.
Approximately 35 per cent fats, oils
and animal proteins and the rest fruit,
vegetables and greens.
This should sound familiar to most
of you, because the BAD (Bahamian
Average Diet) is very similar.
The chronic diseases of humankind
are not seen in wild chimps, so maybe
we should ask. the question, 'why not
take a leaf out of their book?'
Once reviewed, the difference is
crystal clear the lifestyle and what
they eat is blatantly different.
The biggest difference being that
.chimpanzees consume significantly
more green leaves than humans.
They consume these greens in con-
junction with fruit.
Based on these observations, Ms
Boutenko proceeded to perfect the
basic green smoothie recipe: 60 per
cent fruit and 40 per cent greens,
blended with a little water.
According to Ms Boutenko, greens
are the primary food group that match
human nutritional needs most com-
pletely.
They are loaded with amino acids,
(the building blocks of protein), min-
erals, vitamins, fibre and chlorophyll.
Unlike other vegetables, it is said
that greens can be combined with any


other food and will enhance digestion
by stimulating enzyme production.
This is because there is a substantial
difference between green leaves and
vegetables. Green leaves don't have
starch while vegetables such as car-
rots, beets, broccoli, zucchini, daikon,
etc, contain a lot of starch. Starchy
vegetables combined with fruit may
cause bloating..
Contrary to that, fibre in green
leaves helps slow the absorption of
sugar in fruit making this combination
beneficial.
Hence, the combination of. greens
and fruit in green smoothies is gener-
ally acceptable.

Here are 10 answers to the ques-
tion, 'What are the benefits of con-
suming more dark leafy greens (espe-
cially in the form of a green smooth-
ie)?'

Regular Digestion
They are full of fibre which is very
important for good colon ecology
and elimination of waste.

Experience fewer cravings forsug-
.ary and salty processed food
In the words of Khepra Anu, 'You
are what you eat because you eat
what you are. Change your cravings,
change your health, change your
life!'

Fewer mood swings

More radiant skin
When your bowels are moving cor-
rectly, your body can eliminate tox-
ins in an efficient manner. Usually
someone with acne and other skin
problems have a problem with regu-
Slar bowels. When the toxins cannot
leave through the bowel regularly,'
they have to leave somewhere else,
often times this is via your skin.

* Weight loss
There is a saying, 'people who are
overweight are actually malnour-
ished!'
This is because we are eating nutri-
tionally 'empty' rather than dense
foods. With an increased amount of
nutrients, your body will be getting
what it needs, thus a higher feeling of
satisfaction, and less snack attacks!


* Blood sugars may be sta-
bilised If you are a dia-
betic you may need to
choose low sugar fruits at
first. Such as berries,
green apples, grapefruit,
etc.

* They are chlorophyll
rich.
Chlorophyll is the blood
of the plant and it is the
molecule that most closely
resembles human blood. It
purifies our blood. It fights
bad breath and bad body
odour. It is an immune
enhancer. It can help to
correct anemia. It will
rejuvenate your body.

* They are high in antioxi-
dants and phytochemicals.

* They will help to bring
down the acidity in your
pH and make you more
alkaline.
Cancer does not grow in
an alkaline body. In fact,*
most disease grows in an
acid environment.

* More Energy
Just ask the local athletes
who have accepted the
'Green Smoothie Chal-
lenge'.

THE RIGHT
APPROACH:
There are times
when it is okay
to wait and let a
situation cool
down.


Dodging the Fall


THE words dodging, evasion, pre-
vention and avoidance have both con-
structive and dysfunctional applica-
tions.
For instance, avoidance can be a
calculated action taken that will serve
the greater good.
You can take actions that can help
you to avert a catastrophe and save
jobs or you can decide on avoiding an
immediate decision because it takes
time to weigh the risks.
There are times when it is okay .to
wait and let a situation cool down.
This can be a productive approach
as heightened emotions impede com-
munication.
Avoidance is an action or lack of
action propelled by a decision, and
often times, the decision is propelled
by an emotion.
This article will explore the darker
side of avoidance, why it happens, and
what can be done about it.
When avoidance is in a dysfunc-
tional mode it can be driven by fear or
anger.
When a person is in a negative
avoidance mode, the quality of com-
munication diminishes.
It is important to note that commu-
nication can shut down whether or not
a person is still engaging you in con-
versations.
There are some who choose to lit-
erally stop all forms of verbal and writ-
ten communication, others leave the
channels open but their responses are
vague, circular or confusing.
Sometimes the responses are pas-
sive aggressive; where a person is giv-
ing the facade of co-operation but
there is no intention to follow through
with constructive action.
When the intention behind avoid-
ance is not driven by fear, but by a
need to take a step back and view the


BYYVTT
mEHL


big picture, it is.functional if procras-
tination does not set in.
- When avoidance is driven by the
fear of a low performance rating, job
loss or the loss of a good customer,
because of incompetence, a lack of
integrity, a low tolerance for mistakes
or a lack of knowledge it can end up
with disastrous outcomes.

DYSFUNCTIONAL
AVOIDANCE TACTICS
Here are a few ways both employees
and people leaders avoid and nega-
tive responses:
Avoiding the subject can be
achieved by changing the subject or
pretending the subject was never men-
tioned. It is also-done by answering a
question with a question.
Minimisation is a commonly used
tactic that is used to create a positive
spin.
The intention behind minimisation
is to mislead by creating a false sense
of security.
For instance, some persons will a
general statement that everything is
going well or they misrepresent the
facts in other ways.
A way to test this is to ask for spe-
cific informatioLn
Others avoid by screening their calls,
not responding to emails or at an
extreme, hanging up on others.


Blame is a common way that
employees divert attention from them-
selves. Blame is sometimes accompa-
nied by half truths designed to appease
fact seekers.
As previously stated, avoidance can
be a passive aggressive strategy that
is responded to with passive or overt
aggression.

HOW AVOIDANCE
IMPACTS OTHERS
Using avoidance as a delay tactic
only frustrates the people impacted
by the delay.
In response, frustration can result
in tension or even shouting and pro-
fanity, especially if the avoidance is
creating an unfair situation where
someone feels disadvantaged or dis-
empowered by the circumventive
behaviour.
In extreme cases an avoider's safety
can be put at risk, causing them to
constantly look over their shoulders
in anticipation of some type of retali-
ation.

INTRODUCING
ACCOUNTABILITY
The whole point of dodging the fall
is survival.
When avoidance occurs because of
fear or cowardice, the reasons under-
girding the evasive action can be fear
of consequences, circumvention of
conscience, or no conscience at all.
In fear or anger driven circum-
stances, dodging the fall is about avoid-
ing responsibility and accountability.
Unless the avoider has a cathartic
personal experience and honesty and
integrity become priority values that
drive courageous action, it is highly
unlikely that evasion will cease
because the need to survive is over-
rides or nullifies the need to be honest.


If personal transformation is not an
option, another way to transform this
type of behaviour into -functional
behaviour is through effective leader-
ship. Attuned leaders realise the
impact of avoidance behaviours on
their efforts to build a cohesive, moti-
vated team so here are some of the-
ways they develop accountable
employees:
Take assertive action to correct
unwanted behaviour. This can
include handing out warning letters
and depbndling on the risks created
by the avoidance tactics, termina-
tion. This sends a clear message that
avoidance will not be tolerated.
Reward appropriate behaviour
through performance management
or other recognition programmes.
Coach direct reports and peers.
Mentor coworkers;
Model desired behaviours.
Provide learning opportunities.
It is important to note that behav-
ioural training without effective sys-
tems implemented to ensure the
application of the learning produce a
much lower return on investment
than training used in conjunction
with other developmental opportuni-
ties.

I As a people leader, it is important to
select the right combination of inter-
ventions so that the root causes can
be adequately addressed and authentic
change can begin.
As a leader, it is imperative to sus-
tain the behaviours necessary to effect
change, otherwise, sporadic attempts
to create long-term change will be
pointless.

Prevention is the

cure to back pain
THEmost important cure
for back pain is prevention.
If proper care of \our bod\
and spine is taken the prob-
ability of injury decreases.
Here are some guidelines
you can follow to avoid back
pain.

TIPS TO PREVENT BACK PAIN
Maintain a healthy diet
and weight.
Remain active under the
supervision of your doctor.
Avoid prolonged inactivity
or bed rest. ,
Warm up or stretch before
exercising or other physical
activities, such as.gardening.
Maintain proper posture.
Wear comfortable, low-
heeled shoes.
.* Sleep on a mattress of
medium firmness to min-
imise any curve in your
spine.
Lift with your knees, keep
the object close to your
body, and do not twist when
lifting.

impairs blood flow, resulting
in oxygen and nutrient
deprivation to spinal tissues.
Work with your doctor of
chiropractic to ensure that
your computer workstation

Drink enough water for
your body size and activity
Get regular spinal check-
ups from your Chiropractor
Taking these simple steps

A UNIQUE style and.the,
imagination to trans- '"
orm anyone from ordi-
nary to extraordinary has
made Christine Demeritte theL
go-to photographer for those
seeking to have their image
immortalised with style.
Christine's ICandy photography stu-
dio in Nassau which specialises in glam-
our and beauty shots has the reputation
of transforming everyone who b alks
through the door into a glamorous
magazine cover model.
Born and raised in Freeport, Chris-
tine has trained with top celebrity
retouching artists in London and stud-
ied professional photography in Pans.-
-- She has also completed various stud-
ies in the United States which helped.
her to acquire her retouching and light-
ing techniques for ICandy.
The ICandy studio fist opened in
Freeport in September 2005. Then, in
December 2008. Christine relocated
i her business to N.assau.
Today. she offers everything from
simple, classic photography to sexy and
F sensual photo shoots.
, In an interview with Tribune
'J Woman. Christine explained how it all
started.
"'Ma be about ten years ago I was at
a trade show in San Diego and I did a
master class with Douglas Dubler, who.
is one of the .world's greatest beauty
and lJamour photographers. I had to sit
in on his class for about an hour and
r' then after he \'js showing us the art
of beauty and photography, I wanted to
do it.
"At the present job that I was work-
mng on. I was already restoring oldpho-
tos so when be showed us how he did
beauty and glamour photography with:
the lighting and then having to go in
and retouch the photos, I already had
some% hat of the retouching part down
pat so I basically had to go in and learn.
how to do photography of which I had
j no clue. From there I went on to further
investigating beauty and glamour pho-
tography and I started doing trade
shows and exploring photography; it


was something [ really was interested in,
over the course of the following year."'
After her interest was awakened,
'Christine said she really wanted to learn
how to
specialise in beauty and glamour
photography.-
"I'went to school in New York City -
.and I did several months training and
went oft to Philadelphia and just dif-
ferent parts of the United States, train-
ing with people and at schools that
were allowing me to-do short courses;
that is-when I found out that it was
something I wanted to do for the rest of
my life," she said. "-
Two years after Douglas Dibler-first
inspired her with his. master class in
San Diego Christine started ICandy
Photography. .
''I basically started at home in my%
mom's house while I was wvot king dur-
ing the day with' another company in
Freeport-and everybody just loved it.
Mixing photography with retouching
was basically what I called airbrushing
so people kind of loved the fact that I
was making their skin-perfect,".she.
said.
She said she chose te'tname'ICan-
dy' because it represents isial appeal.
"Just making people into vixens'and
it's eyedandy," she-saitL. .

NEW-FOUND PASSION'

r" While she was working out of her
mom's house Christnne'realised that.
she would have to hone her skills fur-
ther if she wanted to make a hierative
business out of her new-foupd passion.
"I realized that I was short skilled in
lighting so I got the opportunity to go
off to France at a school called Speos,
a private international school. I got
accepted for a year where I specialsed
in beauty and glaqfir lighting and
that's how I got whe F I am now with
the lighting techniques. I was already
kind of good. but the lightmgjust took
it to another level," she said.
During that time Christine also got
the chance to do some celebrity skin
retouching work with William
Williamson from Cursor Inc in Lon-
don.
"(Mr Willaimson) did eight hours a
day of intense celebrity'skin retouching
and that is how I ended up just brand-


ing ICandy with the skin retouching' ."
by training with him," she said.. '. -,',*
The move to Nassau began after it.
seemed like she had outgrowIn
Freeport.
Christine said she kne\ [there would
be more clients who would want a dif-
ferent style of photography in Nassau.
"I got the opporturmty to do a Kalik
calendar and then people were book-
ing me while I was Nassau doing Kalik
and I just decided to stay; more people..
more avenues to do a different class of
photography."
When asked if she had a favourite
photo of her own, Christine said: "It's
called 'Frozen', we took a girl in Paris
and put her in a-meat freezer and we
'plastered her body with just plastics.
We had a make-up artist on set that
made her make-up and everything look
frozen so she looLed-froated. We hung
her into the meat freezer with just meat
and we had.a butcher look as if he
were cutting her down. It was on the
sexy side but it was still more consery-
ative because of the look. France is a
little more conservative in anything
that they do."
As a well-known photographer in
the Bahamas today. Christine said her
client base has exploded.
"Alone in the past six months her fan,
page on Facebook has grown from
'1,000 to 7,00o) members.
Grateful for the success. Christine
said her chosen profession is never-
. theless hard work. ,
"It's a task because every photo that
someone takes. I hae to digitally
repair the skin. we have to go in every
shot to specialise and detail the skin. So &.
if we see 20 people, 20 of them taking
five photos, we have to specialise every
last detail: skin, hairline, stretch marks,
tucking, toning. corrections, everything.
"I had to hire and train a photogra-
pher because the editing became so
heavy I was not able to get in the stu-
dio and finish the work. so m) assistant
now does all of the photo shoots unless
someone specifically asks for me," she
said.
In addition to her regular studio.
Christine bas now also created the
"ICandy Mansion' a studio that pro-
vides a comfortable lounge atmosphere
and new opportunities for her unique
style of photography.

Saying- '. to Valentin' s Day


By JEFFARAH GIBSON
Tribune Features Writer

WHILE some women will be
basking in love tiis Valentine's Day.
others are choosing not to engage in
the rituals which define the popular
holiday arid are in fact celebrating
the day in new, ways.
Tribune Womnan spoke to a few
ladies who shared their reasons hvy
they won't be celebrating Valentine's,
Day with that special someone this
year.
Shandria Thompson. said: "I am.
not celebrating Valentine's Day sim-
ply because I don't have anyone to
share 'my love with; I didn't have a
man to spend Valentine's Day with
last year and I don't have one to
spend it with this year. So I' have no,
reason to celebrate Valentine's Day
and to be honest it does not matter to
me." .
Although she .has doesn't have .a
man to wine and dine her she .says
she is not going to dwell on it.
"My girlfriends and I will probably


go out and paint the town red. Just
because I don't have a man right now.
doesn't mean that I am goirig to stay
in my house. I am boycotting this
Valentine's Day but I am not boy-
cotting the next. I-am not going to
find my true love sitting up in the
house thinking about him, I got to get
up, go out there and socialise," she
said.. .
Nicole Stuart said she hasn't found
the light guy yet either, so she is lay-
':ing lo% t his Valentine's Day.
"All I have been meeting is a
bunch of losers lately. Valentine's
Day, is a day that I always wanted to
spend with the one that I love but I
ha\ e not found him yet. And the
guys that I have met tell me how
they are so attracted to me and how
I make them feel: so good but I
haven't got roses or.a box of choco-
lates yet, so no Valentine's Day for
me,"' she said.
While these ladies have are still
searching for their true loves, Marie
Saunders* said her heart has been
broken by the only, man she ever
loved.


"The hell with Valentine's Day,
because the truth is some men don't
have no love. My ex-boN friend left
me to be with someone else so I
don't have no one to spend Valen-
tine's Day with. When he left he took
all the love he had and he took my
heart, with him,'' she told Tribune
Woman.
.Earika Pindet said she believes
Valentine's Day should be every day
so there is no need to glorify Febru-
ary 14.
"I would not say that I am boy-
cotting Valentine's Day, but why do
men have to wait until Valentine's
Day to say 'I love you' or send gifts
that should be a part of their every-
day living. Show me love every day.
Don't show me love only on that day
and then when that day goes the love
goes as well," she 'said. .
Another reader, Finicha J, had this
to say: "To be honest, Valentine's
Day doesn't really matter to me. I
guess for some people that's the only
time they get a gift or some love from
their significant other, but if that's
the case, what's all the hype about?"

Byron Ferguson Jr making his presence felt at Trinity Christian Academy


By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net


wo years ago, Byron Fergu-
son Jr's parents, Byron and
Roberta "Bobbie" Fergu-
son, made a decision to send him off
to complete his high school educa-
tion in the US.
Since making the necessary adjust-
ment from playing softball and run-
ning track at St Augustine's College,
Ferguson Jr is now making his pres-
ence felt at'Trinity Christian Acad-
emy in Lake Worth, Florida.
Last month, 17-year-old Ferguson
Jr participated in the Pre Season
Under Armor All-American Tour-
nament at the Diamondbacks Train-
ing Facility in Arizona.
The tournament was held in Jan-
uary and showcased the top players
from around the country as they
competed in not only running, but
fielding, pitching and hitting.
Ferguson, coached by Miguel
Cuello on Trinity's baseball team,
played in the Class 2A segment of


the tournament that
was designed for "
potential college
and minor/major
league teams.
During the tour-
nament, Ferguson's
speed was also test-
ed as he had to
compete in the 60-
yard dash, excelling FERGUSON JR
to number six over-
all with a time of 6.75 seconds.
On hand to view the tournament,
Ferguson.Sr said he was extremely
pleased with the progress his 5-feet-
11, 185-pound son made, and that
he has a younger brother, Travis,
waiting to follow suit.
"He is definitely in the top 20. per
cent of grade 11 and 12 baseball
players in the country," Ferguson Sr
said. "In terms of 12th graders, he
should definitely be right up there
next year when the rankings are
released from the tournament."
Said Ferguson Sr,'a former sprint-
er for the Big Red Machine: "He
has a very good work ethic. He


works really hard and he's very com-
petitive," he said. "He tries to be
the best among the group of players
that he's involved with right now.
"I think over the last year and a
half, since he went off to school in
Florida, he has been doing very well.
So to be there in Florida and watch-
ing him perform against the best
high school players from across the
country was a proud moment."
During the tournament, Ferguson
Sr said he got to watch his son per-
form well in the two positions that he
participated in for Trinity pitching
and outfield.
"He pitched really well and he
looked very well on the outfield,"
he said. "He also had a 700 batting
percentage and so he got on base
most of the times and he also had
about six stolen bases.
"He didn't strike out. Whenever
he got out, it was either from get-
ting thrown out or hitting into a play.
He also pitched well, so it was a
proud moment to see him in that
competition."
As an ll1th grader, Ferguson Sr


said if his son can continue to per-
form the way he is right now, he
should be able to secure a scholar-
ship to a major university at the end
of his 12th grade next year.
"We have a number of colleges
already sending him their informa-
tion, so it's just a matter of trying to
find the right fit for him," Ferguson
Sr revealed.
Ferguson is one of many players
from the Junior Baseball League of
Nassau (JBLN) attending school
abroad in the US. He teams up with
Byron Murray Jr and Anthony Rus-
sell at Trinity Christian Academy.
They are following in the footsteps
of Richard Bain, who in 2009 was
drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies
and is currently playing at Palm
Beach Community College.
Looking back at their decision
when their son completed grade nine
at SAC to send him off to school,
Ferguson Sr said if he had to do it all
over again, he would do the same
thing again.
"At.first it was a kind of tough
move. It wasn't so much a gamble,


but a tough move," he said. "But
looking at it in retrospect, it's been a
good move because he has really
matured over the last year.
"Whenever he comes home, you
could see how much he has grown
up because he has to cope on his
own. His grades have also gone up,
so it's much better for him because
the school is very academic con-
scious."
Having just completed the pre-
season, Ferguson Jr is now preparing
for the start of the spring baseball
Monday when he gets the starting
nod'as the pitcher for Trinity Chris-
tian Academy as they take on
Jupiter High in the opener of the
Santaluces Tournament.
The tournament is slated to con-
tinue Tuesday against Santaluces
and Thursday against Suncoast
before the final is staged Friday.
Their regular season opener is all
set for February 22 against North
Broward Prep.
The season is expected to run
through May with about 35-38
games on the schedule.


Club hosts

Car Lot'

boxing

show

By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter
.-o rdorsetttribunemedia.net

IN its second .show of the
year, one of the Bahamas'
leading boxing clubs contin-
ued its goal of building young
amateur fighters for a future
in the sport.
Champion Amateur Box-
ing Club hosted the "Econo-
my Car Lot" Boxing Show at
the Wulff Road Boxing Cen-
ter on February 5.
Eight bouts were featured
on the night with a closely
contested main event head-
lining the card in the bantam
weight division.
Lester Brown Jr won on
points over Tyrone Oliver 9-6,
and the fight between the two
was also named the "Best
Fight of the Night".
In just a short time span,
Brown has already been fea-
tured in over 50 bouts and has
been tagged as one of the
most promising up-and- com-
ers in the club.
In other matches, Peterson
Wra won on points over
Aaron Butler (8-6), Devante
McPhee won a third round
TKO over Garvin Rolle, Jer-
'maine Allen .won on points
over Kendrick Stuart (10-6),
Keno Newman won on points
over Anton Brown (5-3),
Kenzell Armbrister won on
points over Trae Johnson (7-
5), Sunny Beneby won on
points over Alexander Stur-
rup (13-9), and in his second
match of the day, Wra would
lose in a second round TKO
over Garrett Bain.
McPhee was named the
most improved fighter, Bain
was the most valuable boxer
and the Economy Car Lot
award went to Allen.
Club organiser Ray Minus
* Jr said events like this one are
key for many of the young
fighters as they prepare for
possible opportunities to rep-
resent the country on the
international stage.
"Our goal is to get our
young fighters as many fights
as possible. This right now is
the early training ground that
really matters so much for
these fighters if they want to
become a top fighter at home
and one of the many talented
fighters vwe have now that rep-
resent the country," he said.
"Things are so competitive
right now in amateur boxing
that we could be looking for-
ward to one of the most tal-
ented generations of fighters
we have seen in a long time.

Drogba set to return, African teams head to Europe


By GERALD IMRAY
AP Sports Writer
JOHANNESBURG (AP) -
Didier Drogba is set for his inter-
national return after a seven-month
break as Africa's top teams head
to Europe for a series of friendlies
this week.
Chelsea striker Drogba was
included in Ivory Coast's squad for

Spain targets

morale-boosting

win in friendlies

LONDON (AP) Spain
is targeting a morale-boost-
ing win over Colombia in this
week's international friend-
lies, several of which have
been severely disrupted by
injuries to key players.
The Netherlands and Eng-
land will be understrength for
Wednesday's games against
Austria and Denmark after
players withdrew with prob-
lems picked up in the English
Premier League at the week-
end.
Spain is without captain
Carles Puyol and Cesc Fab-
regas for its match against
Colombia in Madrid but can
still call upon the likes of
Andres Iniesta, Xavi Her-
nandez, David Villa and Iker
Casillas as it aims for a first
win in four friendlies since
adding the 2010 World Cup
to the European Champi-
onship title it won in 2008.
Coach Vicente del Bosque
says "the players have showed
good signs together."

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)
- Thousands of exhausted
but euphoric Packers fans
cheered the team Monday on
its return to Green Bay as
Super Bowl champions after.
their victory over the Pitts-
burgh Steelers.
Schools dismissed early
Monday and people took off
work so they could see the
team as it traveled from
Austin Straubel International
Airport to Lambeau Field
along a route that included
Lombardi Avenue, named in
honour of the legendary pack-
ers coach Vince Lombardi.
Ashley Ellis, 17, and Erica
Christensen, 18, of Oak
Creek, went to bed'at mid-
night after celebrating the
Packers' victory. They were
up at 4am to drive to Green
Bay and stake out a spot for
the parade. They said,the
Packers gave.them "anxiety
attacks" as the Steelers made
their second-half comeback,
but on Monday all was right
with the world in Green Bay.
Asked why anyone would get
up at 4am to visit a football
stadium, Christensen replied,


"Love them," she said.
Area schools released stu-
dents after a half-day to allow
them to attend the parade. By
11am throngs of fans milled
around the stadium's atrium.
People lined up for tours of
the stadium, asked about tick-
ets to Tuesday's rally and
grabbed lunch at Curly's Pub,
a restaurant at the stadium
named .for the Packers"
founder, Curly Lambeau.
. Some fans just stood in the
parking lot and screamed to
the sky. Others paraded
around.with a giant cardboard
replica of the Lombardi tro-
phy.

emerged from the pro shop
with seven Super Bowl cham-
pion T-shirts and $140 lighter.
He said a couple shirts were
for him and the rest were for
his co-workers.
He said he was hoarse from

"Has it sunk in?" he said. "I
don't know. Maybe after the
parade and the celebration."
Dozens of fans helped clear
ice and snow from the stadi-
um bowl's bleachers for a ral-
ly Tuesday. From the field
level, they looked like ants as
they shuffled back and forth,
dutifully chipping away at ice


dams and dumping snow onto
a conveyer belt, which carried
it to the field where bulldoz-
ers pushed it aside. All for
free. The Packers have tradi-
tionally asked fans to clear
snow from the bleachers dur-
ing the season, but this time
was different.
Adam Shirek, 23, of Mil-
ladore, drove two hours Mon-

PITTSBURGH (AP) A
silver lining for the Steelers
faithful is all the "Seventh
Heaven" merchandise will
still be good for at least anoth-
er year.
The Pittsburgh Steelers
remain stuck on six Super
Bowl titles after their 31-25
loss to the Green Bay Packers
on Sunday.
One day after the defeat,
the gloomy weather in Pitts-
burgh seemed fitting for a city
dealing with a rare loss in the
big game.

WINNING RIDES In this publicity image released by Disney, Super Bowl MVP Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers takes a celebratory ride with Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.,

MVP Rodgers celebrates Super





Bowl victory at Disney World


.By KYLE HIGHTOWER
Associated Press


ORLANDO, Fla. (A.P) Aaron
Rodgers' smile never faded as he
rode on the back of a convertible
pacing down a confetti-filled parade
route through Disney World's Mag-
ic Kingdom on Monday afternoon.
The Super Bowl MVP. was oper-
ating on only a few hours' sleep fol-
lowing Green Bay's 31-25 win over
Pittsburgh Sunday. But even with a.
Florida afternoon storm threaten-
ing in the distance, it was clear noth-
ing could cloud the Packers quar-
terback's spirit.
"It's a special day, it really is,"
Rodgers said afterward. "I didn't
get a lot of sleep (Sunday) night, but
it's great to be able to celebrate.
This is a team that came together
and accomplished something spe-
cial."
Rodgers became the latest Super


-Bowl MVP to participate in Disney's.
"I'm going to Disney World" com-
mercial series Sunday night, which
celebrated its 25th anniversary this
year. Former New York Giants Phil
Simms was the first to do it following
the 1987 Super Bowl. Rodgers flew
to Orlando from Texas on Monday.
A California native, Rodgers said
he had been to Disneyland in Ana-
heim, but never to Orlando's Dis-
ney World. Thousands of fans lined
Main Street in the theme park Mon-
day, many of them decked out in
Packers' jerseys, T-shirts and cheese-
head hats.
Rodgers posed for photos with
the Disney characters and even took
a bite of a specially-made block of
cheese in the shape of. a Packers
emblem.
Rodgers said that even with the,
victory, he doesn't expect the com-
parisons to former Green Bay quar-
terback Brett Favre to end. Favre


led the Packers to their previous
Super Bowl win in 1997, but unlike
Rodgers, was not the game's MVP.
"I don't think they ever stop
because I'm the guy that followed.
him," Rodgers said. "But I hope.
You know, we're doing something
special in Green Bay right now and
I hope people can recognize that.
I'm proud of the way our team came
together this season.
"Thankfully, I have two parents
that raised me the right way and
pushed me to be the best at whatev-
er I did. And I wanted to be a foot-
ball player. So, right now I'm at the
top of my game."
Longtime Packers fan Mike Got-
tlieb has lived in Orlando for the
past 25 years, but is originally for
Milwaukee.
One of the founders of the Central
Florida Packer Backers, a fan club
that started in 1987, he 52-year-old
Gottlieb and the group had about


100 of its members at Disney on
Monday to see Rodgers. Also one of
the publicly-owned Packers part-
owners, Gottlieb said he thinks the
ghost of Favie. no longer hangs over
Rodgers.
"I don't know if there was a mon-
key on his back, because the Packers
did what they said they were going
to do," Gottlieb said. "They said
they were going to stand by him, no
matter what happened to Brett and
they did. And I think (Rodgers)
appreciates it, too. ... I think .he'll
be with the Packers forever and he
could have another three or four
(titles) in him."
Rodgers passed for 304 yards and
three touchdowns in his first Super
Bowl appearance.
He said was still thinking about
his underwhelming effort in Green
Bay's 21-14 NFC championship
game win over Chicago. He threw
two interceptions and no touch-


downs in that game, though he did.
have a 1-yard touchdown run.
"I'm a perfectionist," Rodgers
said. "If I played a little better I
think I'd be a little more satisfied
with my postseason, but I prepared
to play well (Sunday) and I was able
to meet those expectations."
Next up for Rodgers is to rejoin
his teammates for a celebration at
Green Bay's Lambeau Field on
Tuesday. But he said it's the
moments with them Sunday night
after the game that are continuing to
play in his mind.
"Just in the locker room after the
game and being able to reflect with
my teammates," he said. "Big hugs.
It's a special group of men. I think
you realize at that point the season is
over and that group of men is never
gonna be together again. It's just
special to be able to share with those
guys because we went through a lot
together this year."

Bobcats' Jackson ejected, reaches 13 technicals


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Char-
lotte Bobcats guard Stephen Jackson
has been ejected late in the second quar-
ter against Boston for picking up con-
secutive technical fouls.
After Jackson complained about being
called for a foul on Kevin Garnett, ref-
eree Kane Fitzgerald hit him with a tech-


nical. Jackson continued to complain
and referee Mark Ayotte ejected him
with a second technical before play
resumed Monday night.

Season

It marked his second ejection this sea-


son. The volatile Jackson has already
been suspended for' a game and fined
$50,000 for separate incidents involving
officials this season. Jackson has reached
13 technical fouls on the season, not
including one that was later rescinded by
the league. That leaves him three shy
of an automatic one-game suspension.

TRIBUNE SPORTS


IN ER ATIO AL S O TI


Mark Wilson wins frost-




delayed Phoenix Open


By JOHN NICHOLSON
AP Sports Writer

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.
(AP) Packers fan Mark
Wilson celebrated a big vic-
tory of his own on a playing
field about as close to frozen
tundra as it gets on the PGA
Tour.
A self-described cheese-
head from Menomonee Falls,
Wisconsin, Wilson won the
frost-delayed Phoenix Open
on Monday for his second
victory in three starts this
year, holing a 9-foot birdie
putt on the second hole of a
playoff with Jason Dufner.
"I'm just enjoying the ride
here and that's just kind of
the way I'm going to look at
the year here, just ride this
train as long as I can," Wilson
said.
After playing until dark
Sunday and fulfilling some
parental duties, he was able
to watch only a few minutes
of the Super Bowl.
"I had to wash Lane's face
and put his jammies on, and I
had to eat, too," Wilson said.
"The chaos, with two little
kids running around I like
the chaos; it's a good distrac-
tion. But at that time, I want
to at least get to watch the
last 15 minutes of this game.
This doesn't happen every
year, the Packers in'the
Super Bowl.
"Luckily, my son, after we
played Candy Land in the
middle of the fourth quarter,
he said, 'OK, the last two
minutes we can watch it
together.' So we watched that
last stand, and I was happy
that'they somehow pulled it
off."
Delays for frost and frozen
turf the first four days forced
the Monday finish.

come up short of the hole on the 18th green in the final round of the
Phoenix Open Monday. Dufner finished second in the tournament.

MARK WILSON


Two strokes ahead when
play resumed Monday, Wil-
son closed with a 2-under 69
to match Dufner at 18 under.
Dufner shot a 66, with birdies
on Nos. 16 and 17.
, "I was a little more ner-
vous today than I was expect-
ing," Wilson said. "I didn't
sleep great last night. It was
probably the excitement with
the Super Bowl and the
uncertainty of today."
The Sony Open winner last
month in a 36-hole.Sunday
finish, Wilson made a 4-foot
par putt on the par-4 18th to
extend the playoff. He won
on the par-4 10th, setting up
the deciding putt with a .7-
iron approach from the mid-
dle of the fairway.
"That was an easy putt,"


Wilson said. "Just thankfully,
.1I started it on line and
knocked it in."
Dufner was facing a 7-foot
par putt when Wilson ended
the playoff. ..
"Came out and made a
couple birdies to put maybe a
little heat on Mark, and he
played great," Dufner said.
"Great two-putt on the first
playoff hole from 70-plus feet
and makes birdie on the next
hole."
Wilson earned $1,098,000
for his fourth PGA Tour title.
The 36-year-old former Uni-
versity of North Carolina
player also won the 2007
Honda Classic and 2009
Mayakoba Golf Classic. He
jumped from 91st to 51st in
the world ranking locking


up a spot in the 64-man
Match Play field after fin-
ishing last season at No. 230.
After resuming play Mon-
day on the 13th green,'Wil-
son made seven straight pars
before holing the winning
birdie putt.
He nearly drove into the
water on the left side of the
18th hole in regulation, but
the ball cleared the hazard
and ended up in a bunker.
He hit a 9-iron approach to
about 14 feet and two-putted
to force the playoff.
"I got away with a bad tee
shot on 18, but luckily got a
good bounce and was hop-
ing I'd finish it off there,"
Wilson said. "But the play-
off was fun."


Dufner is winless on the
PGA Tour. He also settled
for par on the final hole of
regulation after nearly hol-
ing out from a greenside
bunker.
"It's a good start to the
year," Dufner said. "To be
honest, this is a course that I
never really thought I could
compete on. History on this
golf course is a lot of long-
ball hitters. Mark and myself
probably aren't the longest,
but we're probably not the
shortest. But to be able to
compete and be at the top of
the field for the week is good,
so it's definitely good
momentum for the rest of the
West Coast swing."
Martin Laird (65) and
Vijay Singh (66) tied for third
at 16 under, and Gary Wood-
land (66), J.B. Holmes (67)
and Nick Watney (68) fol-
lowed at 15 under..
Third-round leader Tom-
my Gainey,.a stroke back
with two holes left, closed
with a 74 to tie for eighth at
14 under. He made a triple
bogey on the par-4 17th after
hitting into the water twice
on the driveable hole.
"I guess I've just got to
deal with it," Gainey said.
"You've got to win with class
and you've got to lose with
class, so I'm trying to deal
with that right now."
Phil Mickelson tied for
29th at 10 under. He finished
with consecutive 71s after
getting into contention with
opening rounds of 67 and 65.
Mickelson, second a week
ago in San Diego, needed at
least a solo third-place finish
to pass Tiger Woods for No.
3 in the world. Lefty hasn't
been ranked ahead of Woods
since the week before the
1997 Masters.


Khan to defend


WBA title


TER, England
(AP) Amir
Khan will defend
his WBA light-
welterweight title
against European
champion. Paul
McCloskey on
April 16.
In his first fight AMIR KHAN
on home soil since
2009, the British fighter will face
the Northern Irishman at the
MEN Arena in Manchester.
"Home is home and I love
fighting in England," the 24-year-
old Khan said Monday. "Not
many people can afford to travel
all the way to America to see me
fight. "McCloskey's not a pay-
per-view fighter and he agrees
with that."
Khan fought in the United
States last year, defeating Paulie
Malignaggi and Marcos Maidana.
He has a career record of 24 wins
(17 KOs) and one loss.
There had been speculation
that Khan's next defense would
be against Victor .Ortiz or Zab
Judah. But he has settled for the
31-year-old McCloskey, who is
22-0 but hasn't fought any big
names.
"I've never really met him but
he's meant to be a great fighter,
undefeated and European cham-
pion," Khan said. "It's going to
be a big night for me.
"He's a tough guy. For him, it's
going to be a big fight. He'll be
fighting for a world title. I'm giv-
ing him that chance."
But Khan is already looking
past the bout. He wants to meet
WBC and WBO champion Tim-
othy. Bradley before stepping up
a division to fight Floyd May-
weather Jr.
"I want to unify the division in
the summer/" Khan said. "My
dream is to become pound for
pound champion of the world
and to do that.I'll have to fight
one of them.
"I'm a big fan of Mayweather
but sometimes you have to share
the ring with one of your heroes."
