Paramedics are





suspended oVer



'extortion' claim



Injured tourists 'forced to


payifor-treatment, transport'


By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
aturnquest@tribunemedia.net
TWO paramedics have been
suspended following claims that
they forced injured tourists to
pay for treatment and transport
to hospital.
The actions of the two-mem-
ber crew are now being investi-
gated by bosses at Emergency
Medical Services.
It is alleged that two visitors
injured in a traffic accident
were the victims of extortion -
having been told they would
have to pay up-front for treat-
ment and transport.
The tourists were said to be
riding a scooter at the time of
the accident, but it is not known
if another vehicle was involved.
EMS director Dr Avery
Hanna confirmed, the crew has


been suspended pending fur-
ther investigations.
Dr Hanna said the Public
Hospitals Authority (PHA),
which oversees EMS, takes the
allegations "extremely serious-
ly" and has forwarded the mat-
ter to the disciplinary commit-
tee.
"As with any accusation, we
have to ensure the appropriate
investigation takes place," she
said.
The director said the inquiry
is in the advanced stages and
will be finished in a matter of
weeks, but declined to give fur-
ther details until the final report
is coinplete.
According to Tribune
sources, the amount in ques-
tion was $400, but Dr Hanna
.said she could not confirm pr
deny this.
She also declined to confirm.


MAN DIES AFTER BEING STABBED
A 28-YEAR-OLD man died in the Princess Margaret Hos-
pital at 8.40 last night after being stabbed on Soldier Road
earlier in the evening.
It is understood that there was an argument when three
men attacked him at about 8pm. He was stabbed multiple
times. His name was not available at press time.

FAKE GOODS STILL SOLD AT STRAW MARKET DESPITE VENDOR CHARGES


By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
mreynolds@tribunemedia.net
FAKE designer bags and
purses continue to be sold at
almost every straw market stall in
downtown Nassau just days after
nine Bahamians were charged in
the United States with trafficking
counterfeit goods.


Gucci, Fendi and Louis Vuit-
ton are among the wide variety
of purses, totes and wallets being
snapped up by tourists keen to
buy nice-looking bags regardless
of their authenticity.
At the straw market you can
purchase an imitation version of
the Fendi spy-bag sold for
around $2,000 at the genuine
Fendi shop 100 yards away, for


just $80, or $50 if you are willing
to haggle.
Dozens of Louis Vuitton
designs pertaining to the origi-

fraction of the pricr, such as the
$420 Speedy 25, sold for around
$80 in the market, or $45 to a

Debate on

Baha Mar

work permits

put off again

Ry ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net


A parliamentary debate on
the 8,150 work permits for Chi-
nese and other foreign labour-
ers to work on Baha Mar was
again postponed yesterday as
executives for the company
have yet to come to a final
agreement with Scotia Bank
over the multi-million dollar
loan that stands between them-
selves and access to the $2.5 bil-
lion offered by a Chinese bank
to build the resort.
Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham gave this update yes-
terday in parliament.
It was during the last meeting
of parliament on September 8,
that the Chinese labour reso-
lution which calls for parlia-
ment's approval for the entry
of an "unprecedented" number
of foreign workers into the
country over the life of the con-
struction of the Baha Mar
resort was first proposed to
be debated.
However, at that time the
prime minister stated that he
felt it would be more appropri-
ate for the debate and vote on
the labour matter to wait until
Baha Mar and Scotia Bank
have come to an agreement on
how to resolve the outstanding
loan. The Export Import Bank
of China, which has agreed to
fund the $2.5 billion Baha Mar
project, has said it will not
release those funds until the
Scotia loan has been paid off
by Baha Mar. I
Mr Ingraham told parliament
on September 8: "It is expected
that all outstanding matters will
be resolved within the next two-
week period."
He revealed that Baha Mar's
principals were set to meet with
Scotia executives in Toronto
the following week and sug-
gested yesterday and today
would therefore be a "more
appropriate time" to carry out
the debate.
But .yesterday he advised that
S :the company had not been suc-
S icessful in concluding the matter
during the two week period and
continue to negotiate.
"I am advised the parties
have made progress' and are
continuing their engagement
but there is no final agreement.
If any is reached today we can
happily come back tomorrow
and have the debate. If not, we
can come back if and when the
parties agree," said the prime
minister.

PROGRESSIVE LIBERAL PARTY LASHES OUT AT MINISTER OF FOREIGN.AFFAIRS


Symonette accused of 'lecturing'



straw vendors arrested in the US


By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

THE Progressive Liberal
Party blasted Minister of For-
eign Affairs Brent Symonette
yesterday for "lecturing" the
nine Bahamian straw vendors
arrested in New York City ear-
lier this week.
As Mr Symonette, who is
also the deputy prime minister,
is currently in New York to
attend the United Nations Gen-
eral Assembly, the PLP peti-
tioned him to visit with the
straw vendors, stating that he
cannot "come off as politically
impotent" in this situation.
"The Deputy Prime Minis-
ter Brent Symonette's remarks
about the arrest of the vendors
in New York is unhelpful.
When (the Bahamas') citizens
are in trouble they expect that
the government will come to
their assistance. Thankfully, the
technocrats in Foreign Affairs
know what their job is: to inter-
vene to ensure that there is due
process, that they are being
properly treated and have the
benefit of all the rights to which
they are entitled.

Help
"Now is not the time to lec-
ture people about what they
ought to be doing but rather to
seek to help in a bad situation.
From what is in the public
domain, firstly it is being said
that the Americans conducted a
surveillance operation in the
Bahamas which led to the
arrest of the individuals. A fur-
ther question is: Was the
Bahamas government aware of
the surveillance operation and
did it give its blessing to this
operation against its citizens,"
the PLP said in a statement yes-
terday.
"It is being said that the
Americans conducted surveil-
lance operations in New York
which led to the arrest of the
individuals. The PLP notes with
great interest and alarm that
the Federal Agents and other
US agencies apparently did not
arrest the merchants who sold
the knock-off luxury goods to
the Bahamian straw vendors.
It stands to reason that if there
are no merchants selling illegal
goods then there would be no
buyers. Will Minister'Brent
Symonette raise this matter
with the US authorities? In
light of the government's han-
dling of the recent case involv-
ing the 'Barefoot Bandit', will


the government peruse a mea-
sure of reciprocity with the US
government," the party asked.
The PLP said that they are
deeply concerned about the
fate of the Bahamian straw ven-
dors, their rights to due process,
and the inability of Bahamian
consular officials to contact
those persons who were arrest-
ed.


"Instead of lecturing the ven-
dors, the deputy prime minister
ought to take time out from his
schedule while in New York to
ensure that the vendors are
secure and that their rights are
protected.
The PLP intends to send an
investigative team to find out
for ourselves what the situation
is in New York," the party said.

Deveaux's offer does not mean guilt


THE LATEST scuttlebut making the
rounds of the political rumour mill is.
that by offering his resignation to Prime
Minister Hubert Ingraham, Environ-
ment Minister Earl' Deveaux admitted
he was wrong to accept the invitation of
Prince Karim Aga Khan to fly in his
helicopter to the prince's private island
in the Exumas. According to rumour
mongers it is an admission by the Min-
ister that the helicopter ride compro-
mised his ability to make an objective
decision on the Prince's application for
permission to develop his, island in the
Exuma Land and Sea Park.
Those persons spreading the rumour
are either completely ignorant of the
Westminster system of parliamentary
government, or they are maliciously
exploiting the ignorance of the Bahami-
an people.
There are many reasons why minis-
ters resign from Cabinet. We had an
incident as recently as March when
Branville McCartney resigned is Min-
ister of State for Immigration. Mr
McCartney said at the time that in. the
forefront of all his issues and emotions
was his "feelings of stagnation and the
inability to fully utilise" his "political
potential at this time."
"We are facing tough times," he said,
"but I confidently believe that the nation
has been mobilized by Mr Ingraham
and the FNM and rallied for a great
national effort. I have learned why this
Prime Minister and Leader of the FNM
is the most successful leader of our par-
ty. And it is because of this that I say, I
have no sympathy with and will give no
credence or comfort to those who would
want to use this resignation to under-
mine his leadership of the FNM and/or
The Commonwealth of The Bahamas."
That was one reason for a resigna-
tion.
One must remember that when a
member is elected to parliament, he is
elected by the people. However, when
he is made a Cabinet minister it is a

position given by the prime minister -
a position that can be taken away at will
for a number of reasons. Should any-
thing arise in that ministry that could
embarrass the prime minister or his gov-
ernment, then it is the action of a gen-
tleman to go back to the prime minister
and offer to resign. It is then up to the
prime minister to accept or reject the
offer.
In offering his resignation, Mr
Deveaux did not admit that he had sold
his integrity for a helicopter ride, he just
did what was expected of him in the
ancient tradition of the Westminster
system. Unfortunately there are not
many gentlemen left among us today,
This was the same tradition followed
by the late Sir Kendal Isaacs when he
relinquished the leadership of the FNM
after he had led the party to defeat in
the 1987 election. However, Opposition
leader Perry Christie did not step down
as party leader when he lost the gov-
ernment in 2007 to the FNM. He was
not duty bound to do so and he chose
not to follow tradition.
In the case of Mr Deveaux, Prime
Minister Ingraham could hardly punish
him for a practice that has been widely
used over the years in all administra-
tions when an investor wanted a minis-
ter to inspect a project for which he
needed permission. It was customary
for the investor to provide the trans-
port, which is what the Aga Khan did in
the case of Mr Deveaux.
And the Prime Minister certainly
could not frown on Mr Deveaux after
this practice had been turned into wide-
spread abuse under the PLP govern-
ment with investors with issues
before cabinet and various government
departments even making their air-
craft available to fly PLP candidates
around the islands during the 2007 elec-
tion.
We know that the PLP are hungry for
political bones to chew on, but it's time
to drop this one it's going nowhere.


Minister Earl




Deveaux and




the Exuma Land




and Sea Park


EDITOR, The Tribune.
First, let me begin by noting
the support and respect that I
have held for Minister
Deveaux over the years. In
my opinion, he is one of the
best Cabinet Ministers in the
current administration.
Unfortunately, he is not
judged against many top per-
formers, given the current
make-up of Cabinet, however,
I find him to be a hard work-
ing and dedicated individual.
Time will be the ultimate
judge of whether my opinion
is correct. .
Secondly, let me deal with
the now famous helicopter
ride. I could care less if this
helicopter flew the Minister
back and forth to work each
day, as long as the taxpayer
is not footing the bill. Further,
for now, I do not think that a
helicopter ride can influence
the Minister's ability to make
a profound decision on behalf
of the People of this Coun-
try. I would like however to
put some other Cabinet Min-
isters on that helicopter, fly
them to Bell Island and leave
them there.
Thirdly, I do believe that
Minister Deveaux made a bad
judgment call in using the
helicopter ride for him arid
his family to travel to Abaco,
which had nothing to do with
the Bell Island project. It
should have been clear that
this would create a political
firestorm and the Minister
should have taken a charter.
However, to me this is not the
larger issue and I don't feel
that he should be sacked for
it. The future has yet to reveal


whether the Minister should
be sacked!
Now to the larger issue and
that is Bell Island in the Exu-
ma Land and Sea Park, truly
one of a kind. Let us consider
a few questions:
Who is Aga Khan IV? He
claims to be a descendant of
the Profit Muhammed and
the 49th and current imam of
the Sia Imani Nizari Ismailis.
Are we serious about allow-
ing such a person to develop
an island within one of the
most beautiful land and sea
parks this country has to
offer?
Do we really need a bil-
lionaire Islamic leader in this
country? How far will we sell
ourselves for the almighty,
dollar?
What are the long term
benefits of allowing this devel-
opment? A few jobs made
available to allow someone to
rip up our National Park to
accommodate a yacht.
Is this Park really one of
the oldest marine parks in the
world that provides a sanctu-
ary to bird and marine life?
If so, an idiot could say no to
its development without even
needing an environmental
impact assessment.
According to The Tri-
bune (September 14, 2010),
when copies of documents
between the Ministry of The
Environment and BNT were
requested, and I quote, "the
file was taken away and made


the subject of a meeting."
Why? Perhaps the Minister
could tell us.
Why has BNT gone quiet
on the issue and now claim it
is too political? It is just as
well they remain quiet now, as
any comments will be over-
shadowed by the allegation
that they received a $1 mil-
lion donation!
Why not devote the time
wasted on this project, on
time spent facing the chal-
lenges of our land fill? We
can fielp the environment,
save money, create jobs, and
create energy with this one!
Mr Deveaux, as a citizen of
this country, I humbly request
that you and your cabinet col-
leagues decline this project.
'We have given away much in
this country. I certainly under-
stand that there are develop-
ments that are necessary for
our economic development,
but please don't destroy the
Exuma Park. And don't
destroy it for someone that
we know nothing about.
Think about the long term
effects and the future of the
Bahamas.
And no, this is not an
unbridled, knee jerk reaction!
It is the opinion of a Bahami-
an who loves the Bahamas.
The jury is still out on Min-
ister Deveaux and his cabinet
colleagues. I trust that they
will make the right decision,
so that history will judge them
favourably.
JEROME R PINDER

Thank you Montagu, for repairing


the Brown's Boat BaSin ramp


EDITOR, The Tribune.
I felt compelled to
respond to the letter sent
to The Tribune last week
from Mr. B. Sands. For
those who did not read it,
Mr. Sand's comments were
in regard to the repair of
the boat ramp next to
Brown's Boat Basin on East
Bay Street.
Apparently he felt that it
was not a worthy ven-
ture. I gathered from his let-


ter, that he must not have a
need to use this ramp nor
sees the need for anyone
else to either.
Thank you Montagu,
for repairing the Brown's
Boat Basin ramp. It is has
been in disrepair for far too
long.
Even though Mr Sands
appears to think that the
money. should have been
spent on the Montage ramp
instead, the two cannot be
compared. The estimates to
restructure the Montagu
ramp are in the millions, the
ramp at Brown's Boat
Basin, cannot even come
close.
While it has been argued
that it would be more eco-
nomical to remove Mon-
tagu's ramp altogether, the
constituency of Montagu
thinks that it is more hon-
' ourable.to do the right thing
by repairing it.
Most of us who are aware
of the times we live in,
and are feeling the reper-
cussions of these hard eco-


nomic times, understand
that we do what we can,
with what we have.
While funding is a big obsta-
cle for the reconstruction
of the Montagu ramp, it is
not the only one it has and
will face.
Perhaps since Mr Sands,
who would like to be per-
ceived as an authority on
this matter, should assist,
rather then criticize.
True FNM's will, of
course, disregard this
rhetoric, we support our par-
ty and appreciate how hard
they work for the good of
our country. This childish
behaviour of taking your

Ministry official: education system

should 'inspire' young people


By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net
MINISTRY of Education
officials say they do not want
to see a proliferation of "reac-
tionary programmes" to deal
with juvenile delinquency.
Olly Mae Knowles, assistant
deputy director of education,
said theie will always be oppor-
tunities for remedial pro-"
grammes, but it is important
that the education system
"inspire" young people through
an "up-front" approach.
"What schools need to do,
and other agencies, is look at
how they can develop the learn-
ing potential of those students.
Underlying most behavioral
problems is a connection with
something the person feels they
are not doing well. They use
behaviour to disguise the true
problem," said Mrs Knowles.
She said the Ministry of Edu-
cation works with a number of
alternative education pro-


grammes (AEPs) for students
who display "unacceptable
behaviour" or cause "serious
disruptions" in class.
Programme SURE (Success
Ultimately Reassures Every-
one) and TAPS (Transitional
Alternative Programme for Stu-
dents) are two of the Ministry's
main AEPs. /
Mrs Knowles said they also
work with Urban Renewal,
church groups, the Hope Centre
Ministries and the national
Leadership, Esteem, Ability,
Discipline (LEAD) institute, as
well as others.
"Rather than going 'and
building more boys' (reform)
schools, we need to begin to
look more accurately at the
questions: Are we diagnosing
our children properly to under-
stand what is happening in their
social life?' Academically, are
they connecting with what is
being taught in the schools?
"We are living in a time when
children must see the connec-
tion between what is being


Increase in special needs students

at Sir Gerald Cash Primary School
THE MINISTRY of Education noted '
recently an increase in the number of special
needs students who have enrolled at the Sir
Gerald Cash Primary School. -
As a result, the ministry said that it has tak-
en steps to improve the state of the facilities
that are provided for tiese students.
In a statement issued to the press yesterday,
the ministry said that it has provided a trailer
to the school grounds in order to accommo-
date other students. However, the ministry
noted, some media reports have suggested
that this trailer was intended for the use of
special needs students. MINISTER OF
"These allegations are incorrect and untrue," MINISTER E OF
the statement read. EDUCATION:
"Just last week Desmond Bannister, Minis- Desmond Bannister
ter of Education, advised parents and admin-
istrators at the school that the special hleeds children would be
accommodated by combining the special needs classroom with
another classroom which was previously used for Spanish lessons.
"The minister has indicated that his position on .the matter
remains unchanged, and accordingly, parents may be comforted by
the knowledge that the trailer will not be used for the accomm.o-
dation of special needs students," the statement read.


taught to them and what they
feel they need to know," said
Mrs Knowles. .
"It is like saying we should
build more prisons because
there will probably be more
children going to prisons.
"Why not put more energy
into preventing children from
going to prison? Let's get our
children to be critical thinkers,"
she said.
Some youth workers say a
preventative approach should
be a major part of the solution,
and they believe a "paradigm
shift" in the education system
is needed for that to happen.
Troy Clarke, president of the
national LEAD institute, said
the solution has to encompass
much more than "teachers
teaching properly".

Delinquency
"It is the education system
itself. Because-of the inadequa-
cies, the education system itself
is contributing to an increase in
juvenile delinquency, the pro-
liferation of at-risk behaviour,
the increase in criminal activities
by youth in our country," said
Mr Clarke.
He said a "zero tolerance"
approach by schools is under-
standable, but "you still have to
provide an alternative to those
set of students who may be hav-
ing challenges as it relates to
being at-risk in the school sys-
tem, whether they are at-risk
academically or behaviorally,"
he said.
Pastor Carlos Reid, head pas-
tor at the Hope Centre, said
despite how much he speaks
about the influence of gangs in
schools, he believes youth vio-
lence is really about an "identi-
ty" crisis, stemming from what
'children are taught in school.
He said education has to be
made relevant to the times and
the needs of people.
"Most of the fights is because
someone disses you. If you
realise that what another per-
son says about you doesn't have
to become your reality, then it
wouldn't matter. (The educa-
tion system should) make us
'feel good about ourselves so we
don't think the only way we
have to get our two minutes of
fame is doing the bunny hop
down Bank Lane," said Pastor
Reid, ..
In the meantime, Pastir Reid
said, "reactive programmes that
deal with intervention" are
essential because the problems

Disaster




conference




on Grand




Bahama


AT THE READY: Participants of a disaster preparedness conference
in Grand Bahama.


TO address the northern
Bahamas' disaster preparedness,
US Northern Command
(USNORTHCOM) partnered
with the National Emergency
Management Agency (NEMA)
to participate in a disaster con-
ference on Grand Bahama this
week.
Partnerships such as those
between NEMA and
USNORTHCOM allow Jfor
nations to draft plans and under-
stand each other's capabilities if
the need'were to arise for a call
for assistance.
The aims of the disaster con-
ference are to reinforce the con-
cepts of disaster mitigation and
preparedness, and to strengthen
the relief, repair, restoration and
Recovery mechanisms in the
islands, and ultimately the syn-
chronisation of the method of
operating in all districts and com-
munities of the northern Bahamas
in the event' of a disaster or emer-
gency incident. ,
The conference was officially
opened by Don Cornish, adminis-
trator in the Office of the Prime
Minister.

Mr Cornish said the conference sister, opened the disaster Con-.

our nation's history as it relates
to disaster management.
"While we have had our share of disasters of late, it has been
, ouis to count the many blessings we enjoyed, particularly during the
hurricane season when we were consistently spared the ravages of
a major storm," he said.
Grand Bahama was hit by- three major hurricanes Frances,
Jeanne and Wilma in 2004 and 2005. Those storms and the dam-
age they inflicted, and the recent tornado in March reinforced
the importance of preparedness.:"We have moved gradually away
from the notion that our greatest and only threat to our population
and environment is that brought by seasonal hurricanes.
"We are now fully cognizant- of the many threats we face, par-
ticularly here in Grand Bahama where we have a very large indus-
trial plant, a major container and cruise port and an international
airport," Mr Cornish said.
Disaster Management in the 21st century now employs new
concepts of weather tracking via Doppler radar, satellite and
barometers. It makes use of well analysed data and expert fore-
casting and prognostication. "We have come a long way, ladies and
gentlemen, from the village where the only news we got was from
some, wise person reading nature's signals instinctively in a tiny
Bahamian village and later on to our radio sets, rare as they were
in the early 20th century. It is in this new environment that we oper-
ate, where training and education and new strategies have been'
joined with new innovation and careful planning," he said.
"This environment demands that we remain on the cutting edge
of techfiological advances and keep abreast of forecasting method-
ology in order .to protect the population and properly. While much
of what we prepare for is the, seasonal hurricane, we are ever
mindful that there are many other potential disasters that cannot
be seen in a vacuum and must never be understood as singular
threats in an isolated period."
According to statistics, in the entire Caribbean Basin, which
stretches from the Leeward and Windward Islands in the east to
Hispaniola and Cuba in the west, the Bahamian islands have the
greatest frequency of cyclones. The Caribbean Hurricane Net-
work has reported that the hurricane capital of the Caribbean is
Abaco, with 18 severe hurricanes since 1851, which is an average
one hurricane every eight to nine years. Since 1994, Key West
and Nevis have seen the most severe hurricanes, Mr Cornish said.

50. That the blood of all the prophets, which was shed from the
foundation of the world, may be required of this generation;

perished between the altar and the temple: verily I say unto
you, It shall be required of this generation.

GUINNESS Master Brew-
er Fergal Murray is visitingg
Nassau to share his extraor-
dinary know ledge of the
world's most popular stoul.
His Tour of the Caribbean
is part of the 2010 interna-
tional Arthur's Day celebra-
tions, highlighting 250 years
of Guinness being the world's
most famous stout.
The 300 strong local
Bahamian staff of Burns
House. including store and
adnunistratne employees and
sales and marketing teams
were excited to hear about
Guinness "brand passion" in a
two-part series of sessions
hosted by Mr Murray.
He also visited an addition-
al 60 employees at Common-
wealth Brewery to talk, moti-
vate and conduct further
training on Guinness, a prod-
uct they make daily for the
local market.
Fergal Murray has worked
with Guinness since 1983 and
his vast knowledge of the
brewing process and history
of the Irish brand has enabled
him to travel the world as its
ambassador. .
His contagious passion for
Guinness stout has led him to
create "The Perfect Pour",
and he demonstrated the five-
step process at a special event


anniversary.


Legacy
It honours the legacy of
Arthur Guinness, the pioneer
and philanthropist who signed
the 9,000-year lease on the St.
James' Gate Brewery in 1759
and introduced the Guinness
brand to the world.
The celebration benefits the
Arthur Guinness Fund, which
supports social entrepreneurs


aiming to make transforma-
tional change in communities
around the world.
More than 750 million peo-
ple were reached by the
Arthur's Day message in
2009.
The second Arthur's Day
celebration will be held today,
and will be commemorated
around the globe by people
coming together to raise a
glass to Arthur Guinness in
Ireland, Europe, Asia, Africa,
North America, and the
Caribbean.


NIB 'Good first day for Drug Plan'


0 0

Setmer2r -Otbe n


TIE National Insurance
Board reported that the first
day of business for the
National Prescription Drug
Plan has been a good one.
Claims were being success-
fully adjudicated and, formu-
lary medicines dispensed
throughout the islands at 35
private pharmacy locations
and 61 public pharmacies, the
NIB said.
"It's going smoothly. Bene-
ficiaries are flocking to par-
ticipating pharmacies in New
Providence and being served
and we're receiving good
feedback. We've also had per-
sons throughout the Family
Islands being able to access
prescriptions with no major
problems or concerns," Tami
Francis, NPDP manager said.
However, Mrs Francis said
that ACE cardholders and
doctors must be aware of
some guidelines concerning
how prescriptions must be
written in order to be accept-
edby the NPDP comput-
erised system.
"The main issue that is
causing a problem for some
cardholders is that some pre-
scriptions do not'have a doc-
tor's name written on them.
For example, instead of a doc-
tor's name the prescription
may have 'Dr PMH' written
on it, but the system will not
accept this. All prescriptions
must have a doctor's name
written clearly on them," she
said.
She added that only doc-
tors from an approved list of
physicians are authorised to
prescribe medicine for the
National Prescription, Drug
Plan and only conditions cer-
tified by a physician will be


acknowledged by the system.
"For example a cardhold-
er may be certified for hyper-
tension but not for diabetes.
In this case he or she can only
receive medicine for hyper-
tension but not for diabetes
because a physician has not
certified that condition," Mrs
Francis said.
She said beneficiaries
wanting to determine whether
or not their doctors are able
to prescribe medicine can


refer to a list of approved
physicians on the drug plan
w e b s i t e
www.nibdrugplan.com
"So we want to urge all
cardholders to follow these
guidelines to ensure that pre-
scriptions can be filled when
they visit a participating phar-
macy," Mrs. Francis said.
The National Prescription
Drug Plan was launched on
Monday by Minister of
Health Dr Hubert Minnis.

BTC introduces new long distance calling card


PC Repair A+ Programme


launched at high school


THE Ministry of Educa-
tion, in partnership with.
Synergy Bahamas, has
launched the 'PC Repair
A+ Programme' at the
Anatol Rodgers High
School.
The internationally recog-
nised programme is being
offered for the first time to
students who are in their
third year of the Informa-
tion Technology Magnet
Programme. It targets stu-
dents at the secondary
school level and provides
them with the knowledge
and skills for certification
in personal computer repair.

Training

The training, which is
being provided free of
charge by Synergy
Bahamas, aims to give the
students a head start
towards obtaining their pro-
fessional certification upon
completion ,of the. pro-
gramme. It also aims to give
them the opportunity to
work towards earning cred-
its for further study at the
College of the Bahamas
(COB) while still in school.
Minister .Desmond Ban-
nister praised the students
for doing so well that most
of them were able to sit
their Bahamas General Cer-


tificate of Secondary Edu-
cation exams in the tenth
and eleventh grades. He
encouraged them to contin-
ue to maintain the high
standards that they have set
for themselves and to com-
plete their individual pro-
grammes of study.
Explaining that Synergy
Bahamas has them in the
students programme
because they. see potential


in each of them, the minis-
ter said that more and more
they are finding that there
are students in the public
school system with brilliant
minds.
He asked that they
remain committed and con-
tinue to work diligently so
that they can qualify to
access the many education-
al opportunities presented
to them.

THE Bahamas Telecommu-

duced a new long distance calling
card that uses voice over internet
protocol technology.
The calling card, called "Talk

itors to make calls at consider-
ably lower rates than any other
existing landline technology,
according to BTC.
The company said "Talk it
Up" offers lower rates to more
than 450 countries, including the
United States, Jamaica, Haiti,
Canada, and the UK. The intro-
ductory rate is 25 cents per
minute to most countries for the
next 90 days.
Marion Johnson, vice presi-

,THERE is an angel in St
Catherine's in Ontario, Canada
and her name is Jill Gandza.
Over the yearsJill has-been
going to George Town, Exuma
for holidays, and almost every
trip she has rescued and taken
one, two or three potcakes back
to Canada.
She then painstakingly finds
homes for these lucky dogs.
There are now 15 Bahamian
potcakes residing blissfully in
Ontario thanks to the loving

Jill is a nurse and says she
spends all her extra money on
saving potcakes, caring for
them and finding homes for
them.
She also hosts occasional
"Potcake Parties" for her fel-
low potcake owners.

FROM pageone 200 Chinese labourers 'to build road'


cheaper than if it had got it
from other international mon-
ey-lending sources, it is not this
but rather the long-term impact
on the Bahamian economy and
unemployment levels that
should be a priority.
He suggested that since it is
the government itself, and not a
private sector entity such as
Baha Mar that is planning the
project, it could easily choose
not do involve the Chinese
labour, but rather make the


project Bahamian-led.
"The question for me is
whether or not this government
considered the option of giving
Bahamians the work even
though the cost of executing
the contract would've been
higher than with the Chinese
concessionary loan, because the
impact of hiring Bahamian
workers would've had a greater
impact on the economy of The
Bahamas.


"We (the PLP) have con-
cluded that we cannot support
this resolution on that very
basis," said Mr Christie, adding
that it would not appear there is
any work involved in the con-
struction of the highway that
would be beyond the technical
capacities of Bahamian con-
struction workers.
Prior to the PLP's objection
to the resolution, Minister of
State Zhivargo Laing, speaking


for the government, told of how
the concessionaryy" ,oan for
the highway would be provided
to the government from the
Export Import Bank of China -
the same state-owned bank that
has agreed to finance the Baha
Mar resort project on Cable
Beach on better terms than
it could get anywhere on the
"open market."
The project will see 6.2 miles
of John F Kennedy Drive
"dualised" into a four-lane car-
riageway that the government
says will ease traffic congestion
which is projected to worsen on
the road corridor going for-
ward, and make travel between
the airport and downtown Nas-
sau quicker, safer and more
attractive, among other bene-
fits.
Mr Laing noted that the
loan's two per cent interest
rate is around five per cent
lower than the government
would have been able to bor-
row the, money for elsewhere,
and over the 20-year life of the
loan will save the government
around $30 million in interest
compared with what it would
have paid on a higher-rate
loan.
"These terms could not be
found anywhere else in the
world," said Mr Laing..Only
interest and no principal pay-
ments will be paid during the
first five years of the loan.
Mr Laing added: "It is not
new news about how Chinese
concessionary funding brings
with it Chinese labour."
* The Minister advised that
around 20 to 30 Chinese
labourers would be involved in
the investigative preparatory
phases of the project, seven to
ten in management staffing, 80
for the installation of high volt-
age cables, 20 for light instal-

injuries were, or whether the
incident occurred on West Bay
Street as alleged.
Dr Hanna insisted that if the
investigation uncovers evi-
dence that the allegations are
true, the PHA will take the
"necessary or appropriate"
action which may include
dismissal.-
A source with knowledge of
the Emergency' Medical Ser-
vices said this is only the latest
in a series, of allegations
against staff.
"The public don't know
about it, but there are a lot of
allegations of stuff going
down.
"If these claims are exposed,
maybe someone will take a
closer look at what is going
on," the source said.
While touring the grounds
of the Princess Margaret Hos-
pital, Mike Edwards, a para-
medic from the United States,
was shocked to learn of the


ongoing investigation at the
government-run hospital.
Unlike the Bahamas, the US
government does not afford
national health care, and Mr.
Edwards noted that emer-
gency medical services in his
country were compensated by
an individual's private health
insurance.


He added: "A lot of people
in the US don't have health
insurance and if they don't
have coverage, they'll pay out
of pocket but what happens a
lot of times what the emer-
gency services will do is just
write it off because they can't
force you to pay if you don't
have the money."


lation and 60 for water main
set-up.
"In total, 200 or so Chinese
total over the period of the
development not at any one
time," said Mr Laing.
The Chinese labour involved
in this project would be entire-
ly separate and in addition to
the 8,150 work permits the Chi-
nese are seeking for Chinese
and other expatriate labourers.
to come to The Bahamas to
help construct the Cable Beach
resort.
It is not entirely clear when
the labourers would begin
arriving to participate in the
highway project, although the
government anticipates that
construction may begin in Jan-
uary of next year, and be entire-
ly completed by October 2012.
The 200 Chinese expected to
work on the road and other
connected utilities and land-
scaping are to be joined by an
estimated 100 Bahamian
labourers.
First word of the Chinese
offer,to fund the highway pro-

over 'extortion' claim


Committee of the National
People's Congress in China -
one of the country's top offi-
cials visited The Bahamas
with a large delegation.
While the main news coming
out of that visit was the frame-
work agreements signed by the
Chinese with the developers of
Baha Mar, the government also
signed a preliminary agreement
on the almost $60 million high-
way loan during this visit.
The PLP issued a statement
last night in which it claimed
the government's decision to
go with the Chinese funding
and subsequent labour compo-
nent "re-enforces a decidedly
anti-Bahamian posture" the
opposition party alleges to have
been taken by the government
when it comes to hiring.
The statement highlighted
the contracting of Jamaican
Vinette Graham-Allen as
Director of Public Prosecutions,
the decision to place into retire-
ment numerous senior police
officers, and the alleged hiring
of a foreign judge's wife as a
prosecutor in theAttorney
General's Office as other evi-
dence of this.

candidate. We do congratulate
candidates who were success-
ful and I would like to wish
them every success in the

Irregularities itemized
included: the integrity of bal-
lots, voting booths and the last
minute cancellation of two
polls,
Mrs Friend said: "A card-
board box was used to secure
ballots for voting and transport.
The late opening of polls result-
ed in voters leaving without
exercising their right to vote.
Open voting occurred without
the use of voting booths and

The Environment Minister has also stat-
ed he was "minded" to approve plans sub-
mitted by Island of Discovery Limited,
understood to be headed by the Aga Khan,
to dredge and excavate at least 8.8 acres of
marine sand flats, rock and vegetation for
two channels, 12ft and 14ft deep, to con-
struct a barge landing and 20 slip yacht
basin, and roads across the 349-acre island.
He passed the plans on to the BNT for
their input.


Philip Johnson, election
committee chairman, acknowl-
edged the late start at polling
stations, which.he. attributed to
his team's inability to distrib-
ute ballot boxes in a timely
manner.
. Despite the slight tardiness,
MrJohnson said he believed
the election process sent
smoothly with few hiccups or
reasons for concern.
Mr Johnson said: "The only
other thing I can think of is that
retirees were upset that they
were not allowed to vote. In
the past it was allowed but it is
erroneous the constitution
does not allow for it. Only per-
sons who are in good standing
with the union three months
prior to elections are allowed
to vote.
His first time in the post, Mr
Johnson maintained he dis-
couraged any procedure that
was extraneous to the consti-
tution, regardless of whether it
was a formerly accepted prac-
tice. The unofficial victors, Ms
Wilson and Mr McPhee, were
unavailable for comment up to
press time.
The official results are
expected to be released today.

BPF sending young team to USA Powerlifting championships


By BRENT STUBBS!
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.het

THE Bahamas Powerlifting Feder-
ation (BPF) will be sending off a
youthful tear, made up of competi-
tors from New Providence and Grand
Bahama, to the seventh annual USA
Powerlifting South Eastern Regional
Championships.
The seven-)nember: team is sched-
uled to leave town today for Nova in
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, where they
are expected to compete in the chain-


pionships on Saturday before return-
ing home on Sunday.
It's anticipated that there will be
some 50-plus competitors in the cham-
pionships.
BPF president Rex Burnside said
he's excited about the prospect of this
team that will be managed by Janisha
Miller. The head coach is John Mills,
assisted by coach Keith Cox.
Making up the team. are Grand
Bahamians Alpheus Woodside in the
super-heavyweight division, Romeo
Archer in the 90 kiloclass and Lamont
Evans in the 100 kiloclass.


From New Providence, the com-
petitors are Leslie Whyte, who will
be in the heavyweight division, Dan-
nielle Dennard in the heavyweight,
Tanya Forbes in the featherweight
and-Philip Dawkins in the junior divi-
sion.
Accompanying the team as the head
of delegation will be Crystal Mullings,
who serves as the president of the fed-
eration's northern division.
"We are expecting great things from
this team," said Burnside, who will
not be making the trip.
"This is the youngest and the least


experienced team that we have select-
ed, but it is the most formidable. With
the exception of Leslie Whyte, none of
the competitors have competed in
international competition before. But
we have no doubt that they will all
compete very well."
Burnside said that from the reports
they got out of Grand Bahama, the
competitors there have all been work-
ing out daily and they are ready to
compete.

was disap-
pointed she
didn't com-
: pete at Athe
Central American and
S"bean Bodybuilding and
3s Championships in
t. Instead, she had a suc-
-.ot'ul debut at the World
building and Fitness
action (WBFF) Champi-
Jps..
After being cut from the
national team which left for
Aruba today because the
Bahamas Bodybuilding and
Fitness Federation (BBFF)
didn't have enough funds for
her to travel, Fry decided to
go to the WBFF Champi-
onships in Toronto, Canada.
Last weekend, she was the
oply Bahamian to compete in
the event where she placed
fourth in the Figure Tall cat-
egory. The winner was Jen-
nifer Reid, followed by Linda
Celar and Stephanie Ward.
"To say I wasn't disap-
pointed to travel to the CAC
would be a lie," said Fry,
adding that she is so disap-
pointed about not going to
Aruba that she no longer
wants to be a part of the
BBFF.
"I really wanted to do it
because I knew that I would
have been able to medal. But
I thought about it. I said this is
a decision that I have to
make. Either I could just bite
the bullet or I can go to
Toronto to compete. My hus-
band (Andrew) said I should
do Toronto."
After speaking"with her
sponsors, who were willing to
assist her in making the trek
to Aruba, Fry said she decid-

the World Bodybuilding and Fitness Federation Championships held
in Toronto, Canada, last weekend.
, . . .


ed to take her husband's
advice.
"When I got there, I was so
relieved that I made that deci-
sion," Fry stressed. "The cal-
ibre 'of athletes that I saw
there made me feel that this is .
where I need to be. Some-
times we just think too small. '
Sometimes we need to get out
there on the big stage.
"But if I didn't do' that, I
never would have knew what
it felt like to be called out in
the top five. I was like look
at little me from Nassau,
Bahamas, out here on the
stage with the Bahamian flag.
It felt good."
Now, Fry says, she has
something more tangible to
look forward to in the future.
"My ultimate goal was to
become an IFFB professional
figure athlete. I really want it
that bad," she stated.


"But WBFF is a new feder-
ation. It's just starting out and
it's really building a name for
itself.
"And the reason why it's
starting out so successful is
the fact that the president is
an athlete himself, so he is
more interested in promoting
athletes, rather than just push-
ing the federation. So I'm
going to go the WBFF route."
Next year, Fry said she
intends to participate in a
qualifying tournament in
Vancouver where her in-laws
reside and she will -take part
in the Southern State in Flori-
da in July before she returns
to the WBFF Championships
in Toronto in September.
"Hopeftilly that will help
me to get my WBFF pro
card," said Fry, who said that
she's no longer interested in
,participating in the BBFF


because of the way they are
organised.
Having made the switch
over to the WBFF, Fry said
she will encourage more
Bahamian competitors to join
her because they can get the
same opportunity to secure
their pro card as if they went
through the BBFF.
"My daughter (Jade), who
is 18, she wants to go on stage
next year," Fry said. "So I'm
going to start training her next
week. Who knows, we could
have a mother-daughter com-
bo in the making."
Fry, an art teacher by pro-
fession, has been competing
for the past two years. But,
three years ago when she was
recovering from an injury that
left her in a wheelchair, she
started working out at Bally
Total Fitness.
The rest was history.
She got her initiation at the
federation's Novice Champi-
onships when she pulled off
the victory.
And she went into the
National Championships and
finished third.
This year, with a little more
experience under her belt, Fry
took part in a boot camp in
Boston which helped to boost
her confidence on stage.
After competing in the
Nationals, Fry said she was
eager to test her skills against.
her Caribbean peers at the
CAC Championships.
Fry, who is following in the
footsteps of her aunt Maxine
Darville in the sport, said
she's confident that she can
secure her pro. card in the
near future..
The WBFF, established in-
2008, is headed by Paul Dil-
lett, an IFBB pro who has 24
years of professional experi-
ence in the bodybuilding and
fitness industry.

men's pennant, the Dorin
United Hitmen knocked
* off the Y-l Shipping New
Breed 10-4 at the Banker's
Field, Baillou Hills Sport-

night.
The victory enabled the

not decided on who won
the men's pennant as the

Jets CB Revis out for Dolphins game


By DENNIS WASZAK Jr
AP Sports Writer I
FLORHAM PARK, N.J.
(AP) Revis Island will be
deserted for at least one
game.
New York Jets cornerback
Darrelle Revis will not play
against the Miami Dolphins
(2-0) on Sunday night because
of his strained left hamstring.
"I want to be out there with
them, but I can't;" Revis said
Wednesday. "I'm just going
to take my time and get back
to 100 per cent."
Revis did not practice, and
coach Rex Ryan said the All-
Pro would not even travel
with the Jets (1-1) to Miami.
Instead, he will stay back at


the team's facility to receive
further treatment on the ham-
string.
"He's itching to get back,"
Ryan said, "but it's too risky
of a proposition to put him
out there.'
Revis said he's getting pro-
gressively better each day, but
he and the team decided he
would not be ready in time
to play Sunday.
Linebacker Calvin Pace
'will also not play against the
Dolphins after missing the
first two games of the regular,
season wi':h a broken right
foot.
All-Pro center Nick Man-
gold (right shoulder) and
backup offensive lineman
Wayne Hunter (shin) spent


practice on the stationary
bikes, but Ryan expects them
to play. Linebacker Jason
Taylor was limited while
wearing a brace on his injured
left elbow, but is also expect-
ed to play against his former
team.
Revis was limited in prac-
tice last week with tightness in
the hamstring, but said he felt
completely healthy heading
into the game against New
England on Sunday.
He immediately grabbed at
his leg after Randy Moss
made a spectacular, one-
handed 34-yard touchdown
catch in front of him with 53
seconds left in the first half
of New York's 28-14 win.
Revis was examined on the


sideline, and then taken to
the locker room for treat-
ment. He didn't return and
watched the second half in
the trainer's room.
On Monday, Revis would
not rule himself out for the
Miami game, but acknowl-
edged that it could take him a
week or two to heal. He said
it would be the first game he
has ever missed at any level.
"I'm just relaxed," he said.
"I'm dealing with the ham-
string thing right now. There's
no point in getting emotions
in it. I'll just root my team on
and watch them win."
Revis pulled the same ham-
string last summer and missed
two preseason games, and has
said that injury was worse. So,

TACKLE: Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis (right) tackles Patriots wide
receiver Wes Welker in Sunday's game. Revis left the game later in the


second quarter.

he knows it was smart for him
to sit out the second half
against New England as well
as h1is v. -k.
"I know from previous
hamstrings that if I continued
to play that game, it. proba-
bly would have gotten
w( .a," evis said. "Then, I
probably would've been out
way more weeks than I could
be coming up."
Revis missed all of training
camp while holding out for
36 days in a contract dispute,
and acknowledged last week
that it likely played a role in
the injury.
With Revis out, Antonio
Croniartie will move across
the field and step into his spot

assignment.
"I'm sure Cro's probably
going to get a pick this week-
end," Revis said with a laugh.
Cromartie, who shut down
Moss after Revis went out,
will primarily be matched up
with Brandon Marshall on
Sunday. The two went up
against each other several
times in recent seasons when
Cromartie was in San Diego
and Marshall was in Denver.
Cromartie was also part of a
Chargers secondary that gave
up 18 catches by Marshall in
2008.
"I'm definitely looking for-
ward to that matchup," Cro-
martie said. "It's my ninth
time facing him, so we know
each other well. I'm just look-
ing forward to the challenge."


ALLEN PARK, Michigan (AP) Detroit Lions coach
Jim Schwartz says quarterback Shaun Hill will start at Mmn-
nesota on Sunday.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford did not practice Wednes-
day. Schwartz says Stafford is doing well with his rebabili-
tation,. but the coach and player haven't said what the
timetable is for his return.
The No. I pick in the 2009 NFL draft injured his right
shoulder in the season-opening loss at Chicago and missed
Week 2 against Philadelphia. He missed six games last year
with an injured left shoulder and right knee.
Hwill i completed 53 per cent of his passes for 423 yards
with two touchdowns and three interceptions in two games
this season.

McEnroe retired following
last weekend's 3-1 win in
Colombia, which assured the
team a spot in the World
Group.
Much like the match in
Colombia, Chile is expected
to play the Americans on red
clay, the favourite surface of
almost any team playing the
United States. Chile lost 4-1
to the Czech Republic in this


year's quarterfinals, when it
was hampered by the absence
of injured top player Fernan-
do Gonzalez.
"The good thing is that it's
played in Chile," Chile cap-
tain Hans Gildemeister told
radio Agricultura. "Unfortu-
nately, Fernando (Gonzalez),
who's half the team, won't be
there, and the team suffers
from that." Gonzalez
announced on Tuesday that
he'll have surgery on his right
hip on October 4 and will miss
up to nine months.
Spain, a four-time winner
since 2000, will travel to Bel-
gium as an overwhelming
favourite. The Belgians
though, produced one of the
upsets of the year by defeat-
ing Australia 3-2 in Cairns
over the weekend.

Kazakhstan received a
tough draw for its first ever
Davis Cup World Group tie
by having to visit the Czech
Republic next March.
Kazakhstan earned a berth
in Davis Cup's top tier last
weekend by whitewashing
favoured Switzerland 5-0 in
Astana in the playoffs.
Playing as an independent
nation since 1995, Kazakhstan
was stuck in Asia/Oceania
Group 3 as recently as 2004,
made it into Group 1 in 2007,
then knocked off South
Korea and China this year to
have a shot at the World

behind in the 19th minute but came back
on the'goals by Owen, and one each by
Darron Gibson, Chris Smalling and Ji-
sung Park.
Aston Villa beat Blackburn 3-1 and
Wigan defeated Preston 2-1. American

BOC chief assures Team Bahamas will Y




be safe during Commonwealth Games


MILLER


By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net


WITH the bulk of the national
team,heading out on Sunday for the
Commonwealth Games, Bahamas
Olympic Committee (BOC) presi-
dent Wellington Miller said there
are some concerns about the state
of conditions in New Delhi, India.
According to an article Tuesday
on the Associated Press, one of the
biggest sports events in the world is
in jeopardy as organizers struggle to
cope with unfinished buildings, an
athletes' village described as "unfit
for human habitation," a bridge col-
lapse, concerns over security, alle-
gations of corruption, and an out-
break of dengue fever.
The event, slated for October 3-14,
brings together more than 7,000 ath-
letes from the 71 countries and ter-


ritories every four years.
When asked to comment yester-
day, Miller said like any leader of
any organisation or a team going-
away and they hear of reports, they
have their concerns.
"But then we also hear reports
that everything will be okay by the
time the teams reach there," Miller
said.
"Whenever you have big games
like this, you will hear of unfinished
buildings and.things not quite ready.
With New Delhi putting on these
games, I strongly believe that every-
thing will be all right and that they
will have everything fit for the ath-
letes and the officials when they get
there."
The Bahamas recently named a
29-member team, made up of 18
track and field athletes, two boxers,
three cyclists and six tennis players.
Chef de mission Roy Colebrooke,


who has made two previous trips to
India to view the facilities, is expect-
ed to leave today to ensure that
everything is in order for the
Bahamian team's arrival.
The bulk of the team is scheduled
to depart the Lynden Pindling Inter-
national Airport 8am Sunday.
They are then expected to meet
up with those athletes coming out
of the United States in New York
en route to New Delhi. The team is
scheduled to depart New Delhi on
October 16.
Miller said they are quite aware of
all of the reports coming out of India
and are taking all of the necessary
precautions to ensure that Team
Bahamas is safe during the games.
Minister of Youth, Sports and Cul-
ture Charles Maynard, his wife, and
the acting director of sports, Kevin
Colebrooke, are also expected to
make the trek to India.

Scotland and Canada delay departures to the Games


By CHRIS LEHOURITES
AP Sports Writer

LONDON (AP) With
more and more athletes
announcing their withdrawal
from the Commonwealth
Games, Scotland and Canada
became the first teams to
delay their departures to New
Delhi because of the appalling
conditions at the athletes' vil-
lage.
The October 3-14 games
have been mired in problems
for weeks, and on Wednesday
part of a drop ceiling inside
the weightlifting venue col-
lapsed, spreading further
doubt on whether athletes will
be safe upon arrival in India's
capital city.
The latest woes came a day
after a footbridge near the
main stadium collapsed, seri-
ously injuring five construc-
tion workers, and the athletes'
village where excrement
was found in some rooms -
was labelled.""unsafe and unfit
for human habitation." The
village is due to open today.
"By delaying the arrival of
our athletes by a few days, we
hope to give the Delhi 2010
Organising Committee the
necessary time to address the
concerns that have ,been
raised by both the Common-
wealth Games Federation and
the countries which arrived
early," Commonwealth
Games Scotland chairman
Michael Cavanagh said
Wednesday.

Cavanagh said that dogs have
been seen roaming around the
village, while the apartments
are "filthy" and surrounded
by rubble and building debris.
"W. will not compromise
on areas of athlete health,
safety and security,"
Cavanagh said, adding that
Scottish officials in New Del-
hi would continue to monitor
the situation. "We need
urgent action from the Com-
monwealth Games Federation
and the Delhi Organising
Committee to address these
crucial issues."

On' Tuesday, Common-
wealth Games Federation
President Mike Fennell urged
the government to get the ath-
letes' village cleaned up and
ready for Thursday's opening.
Fennell was due to arrive in
New Delhi on Thursday and
has requested a meeting with
Prime Minister Manmohan
Singh.
Foster said it was possible
that England could pull out
of the Commonwealth Games
if conditions do not improve.
"The safety of the athletes
has to be our primary con-
cern," Foster said. "But equal-
ly, we cannot just respond to
that alone, we have to evalu-
ate the whole thing together
and that is what we are
doing." -
Many top athletes withdrew
from the Commonwealth
Games well before the latest
round problems became pub-
lic, including Jamaican sprint-
er Usain Bolt and world hep-
tathlon champion. Jessica
Ennis. But more athletes
pulled out Tuesday, many cit-
ing safety concerns.

his children when he decided
to withdraw, adding "my safe-

than a medal." Dani Samuels,
a world champion discus

tourists were wounded in a
seemingly random shooting
by two men on a motorcycle
outside one of India's biggest

they all have been very con-
sistent in their training and
are just as excited about the

"But we expect for them to
perform very well."

drawn) I'm sure is making a
whole lot of others question
their attendance," Jane Flem-
ming, who won the heptathlon
arid long jump gold medals at
the 1990 Commonwealth
Games and is now a com-
mentator on Australian TV,
told ABC radio. "It would not
surprise me if we now see a
whole flux of withdrawals,
particularly those athletes who
are of a very high profile or
very successful or who have a
means of making an income
from their sport, because now
the risks that are involved in
attending those games have
gone. through the roof."
World 400-meter champi-
on Christine Ohuruogu and
England teammate Lisa
Dobriskey, the defending
1,500 champion at the games,
both said Tuesday that they
were going to skip the event,
citing injuries. They had pre-
viously said they would be
going.
New Zealand Prime Minis-.
ter John Key said the future
of the Commonwealth Games
would be jeopardized if the
New.Delhi event was can-
celled, but he wasn't prepared
to risk athletes if facilities and
conditions weren't suitable.
"If they are to go ahead,
from New Zealand's perspec-
tive, conditions have to be
safe and sound for our peo-
ple," Key said Wednesday in
Wellington.
The Australian government
said the ultimate decision to
go or not was for the athletes
to make.
"The government cannot
tell people not to compete. It
can't tell parents not to
attend," Australian Sports
Minister Mark Arbib said in
Sydney.

said he has advised the com-

pionship that they should take
lightly.
The championships, accord-
ing to Burnside, is well organ-
ised and despite the amount
of competitors scheduled to
compete, the event is com-
pleted on time. "I'm hoping
that we can have that same
type of structure here," he
added.

He said the situation continues to spiral out of
control "because we have been trying to bury it";
because some administrators "are trying to save
face" instead of admitting there is a problem.
"Almost every symbol of authority in this coun-
try has been discredited. People have no faith in
the police, the government, the legal system, not
even the churches. Most people feel they have to
fend for themselves. That is a messed up position


for us to be in. One time ago, if someone bothered
with you, you would call the police. Most people
aren't calling the police now," said Pastor Reid.
"A lot of the people who make decisions in
this country are clueless as to what is going on in
this country. A lot of the killings are, retaliation
killings. A lot of times, even though the police talk
about people being out on bail, they are really law
abiding citizens, but they feel they are living in a
system that does not provide them with the justice
they deserve, so they take matters into their own
hands," he said.

FULL-SCALE SIMULATED PLANE

CRASH HELD AT AIRPORT


TESTING the facility's pre-
paredness strategy, the Nas-
sau Airport Development
Company (NAD) on Tuesday
conducted a full-scale simu-
lated aircraft crash at the Lyn-
den Pindling International
Airport.
The event, dubbed "Opera-
tion Sunset", was scheduled
during the evening to test
response times after dark.
The scenario of the crash
simulation was as follows:
At approximately 5.50pm,
information was received from
the pilot of a Tallboy Air flight
2841, an international flight
enroute from Two Foot, Plea-
sure Island to Nassau, stating
that he was experiencing power
fluctuations in his right and left
engines.
The pilot said there were 38
passengers, four crew and 1,000
gallons of fuel on board.
He reported that the aircraft
was aD-Hallivand 8 (pash 8),
that they were 15 miles out and


that he is declaring an emer-
gency.
At 6pm, while on final
approach for runway 09, both
engines shut down and the air-
craft crashed short of the run,
way threshold and burst into
flames. Thick black.smoke
emanated from the door of the
cabin and there are numerous
fatalities among passengers and
crew.
The manifest indicated that
there were 15 Jamaicans, eight
Cubans, 12 Bahamians and
three Haitians on board.
NAD officials partnered with
the relevant stakeholders,
including the Royal Bahamas
Police Force, Royal Bahamas
Defence Force, Civil Aviation
Department, National Emer-
gency Management Agency
(NEMA), Emergency Medical
Services (EMS), Airport
Authority, MED Evac,
Bahamasair, Bahamas Red
Cross Society and Doctors Hos-

Summit calls for reduction in distracted driving


By KEN THOMAS
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) Mak-
ing sure drivers keep their eyes on
the road will require a network of
tough laws, enforcement by police
and personal responsibility, the gov-
ernment said Tuesday.
Obama administration officials
said during a second summit on dis-
tracted driving that it has made
progress in pushing states to target
drivers who send text messages and
use mobile devices from the road,
but too many people are being killed
because of inattentive motorists.
"Every time someone takes their
focus off the road even if it's just
for a moment they put their lives
and the lives of others in danger,"
said Transportation Secretary Ray
LaHood:
Thirty states and the District of
Columbia prohibit drivers from tex-
ting behind the wheel; eight states


have passed laws barring drivers
from using handheld cell phones.
Nearly 5,500 people were killed last
year in distracted-driving crashes.
The summit brought together gov-
ernment leaders, safety advocates,
family members of victims and busi-
ness groups to discuss ways of reduc-
ing distracted driving. !'Our lives
have been changed forever. In place
of joy and laughter, there is sorrow.
and tears," said Russell Hurd, of
Abingdon, Md.
, Hurd's daughter, Heather, was
killed in January 2008 when a tractor
trailer plowed into nine vehicles at a
traffic light in Orlando, Florida.
Heather Hurd and her fiance were
driving to meet their wedding plan-
ner at Walt Disney World.
LaHood suggested the technology
industry could place warning labels
- "the way we put warning labels
on cigarettes" on the boxes of
mobile phones urging consumers not
to use the devices while driving.


The transportation secretary not-
ed that automakers were adding in-
vehicle technology that allows dri-
vers to update their Facebook page,
surf the Internet "or do any num-
ber of other things instead of dri-
ving safely.".
"Features that pull drivers' hands,
eyes and attention away from the
road are distractions," said LaHood.
He told reporters the technology
could create a "cognitive distrac-
tion" and he would meet with auto
companies to develop new safety
guidelines for technology in vehi-
cles.
Ford Motor Co. has marketed its
in-car entertainment and communi-
cation service, known as Sync, and
General Motors Co. recently
announced plans to give its OnStar
safety system better voice recogni-
tion so drivers could verbally con-
nect with the Internet.
Automakers have said voice-acti-
vated systems are safer for drivers


than trying to manipulate applica- -
tions on their mobile devices.
Wade Newton, a spokesman for
the Alliance of Automobile Manu-
facturers, said making driving safer
will mean balancing "the fact that
we know drivers will do certain
things while driving and how tech-
nology can make it safer."
As part of the summit, the Trans-
portation Department proposed bar-
ring truck drivers from sending text
messages while hauling hazardous
materials. The proposal would close
a loophole for hazardous material
haulers not covered by separate rules
being finalized that prohibit com-
mercial bus and truck drivers from
sending text messages on the job.
The department also wrapped up
rules restrict train operators from
using cell phones and mobile devices.
on duty. LaHood has pushed states
to adopt tougher laws against send-
ing text messages from behind the
wheel and the federal government


has prohibited federal employees
from texting while driving on gov-
ernment business.
Safety advocates are trying to
replicate the success of campaigns
in the.1980s that helped reduce
drunken driving deaths and
increased the use of seat belts.
The summit highlighted efforts by
corporations to prevent employees
from using mobile devices while dri-
ving on company business.
LaHood said nearly 1,600 US
companies and organizations have
adopted policies related to distract-
ed driving, covering about 10.5 mil-
lion workers. Another 550 organi-
sations, covering an additional 1.5
million workers, have pledged to
create anti-distracted driving poli-
cies for their employees within the
next year. The federal agency also
announced interim results of police
,crackdowns in Hartford, Conn., and
Syracuse, N.Y., to enforce cell phone
bans.

Skills 13 in China



......dozens missing


BEIJING (AP) An offi-

flooding and landslides from
Typhoon Fanapi have killed
13 people and left at least 33
missing.
The typhoon hit Guang-
dong province after making a
direct hit on the island of Tai-

the strongest typhoon to hit
China this year.


An official with Guang-
dong's flood, drought and

13 are dead after landslides
and flooding.
The state-run Xinhua News
Agency says the dead include
five people killed when a dam
at a tin mine in Xinyi city was
hit by a landslide and col-
lapsed.
Heavy rain is forecast for
central and western parts of
Guangdong through Thurs-

Al- Qaida claims


kidnapping of 5


French in Niger


By JAMEY KEATEN
Associated Press Writer
PARIS (AP) Al-Qaida's
North Africa branch has
claimed responsibility for kid-
napping five French nationals
near a uranium mine deep in
the desert of the African
nation of Niger, according to
an audio message broadcast.
In. Tuesday's recording
broadcast by the Arabic news
channel al-Jazeera, a voice
claiming to represent al-Qai-
da in the Islamic Maghreb
said the group would issue its
demands to the French gov-
ernment shortly. ,
France's Foreign Ministry
said it could not immediately
comment on the purported
claim by AQIM, which has
been active in the Sahara and
the arid Sahel region and has
been increasingly targeting
French interests.
The claim came hours after
Niger's government
spokesman, Mahamane
Laouali Dan Dah, said the
hostages also including a
citizen of Togo and another
from Madagascar were still
alive. He didn't say what that
information was based on.
The audio message did not
mention the two African
hostages.
All seven, who worked at a
huge uranium mine in north-
ern Niger run by French
state-owned nuclear power
giant Areva, were abducted
Thursday by armed -men.
France and Niger have said
they suspected AQIM in the
kidnapping in Niger, a for-
mer French colony in north-
west Africa.
In the recording, the group
claimed it "overcame securi-
ty forces in the area and cap-
tured. five French nuclear
experts," and said it would
"shortly" issue its demands
to French authorities.
"We also warn them from
doing anything stupid," it
added. France has deployed,
at least two military recon-
naissance jets to Niger in the
search for the hostages.
There was no way to
authenticate the message, but
in the past al-Qaida and its
affiliates have claimed
responsibility Jfor operations.
through messages sent to Al-
Jazeera.
Last week, the French Sen-
ate voted to ban burqa-style
Islamic veils in France, a sub-
ject that has prompted warn-
ings by AQIM. Counterter-
rorism officials in France say


the ban is'just one of several
factors that have made
France a target of the group.
The excerpts broadcast by al-
Jazeera made no mention of,
the ban.
French authorities believe
the hostage-takers, who oper-
ate in a remote area with
porous borders, have brought
the seven captives to a zone
in northeastern Mali,.a top
French diplomatic official
told The Associated Press.
' The French interior minis-
ter was heading to Mali on
Tuesday.
Niger and Mali are both
former French colonies, and
French Interior Minister
Brice Hortefeux's office said
his trip was part of the cele-
brations around Mali's 50-
year anniversary bfindepen-
dence. A ministry spokes-
woman said Hortefeux
planned to discuss the
hostage-taking with Mali's
president.
Areva, which gets about
one-third of its uranium in
Niger, has acknowledged that
security "breakdowns" exist-
ed before the abductions. On
Tuesday, Areva confirmed it
had received a letter from an
official in Niger on Septem-
ber 1 warning the company
of intelligence about a plot to
abduct foreigners and confis-
cate military materials in the
area.
The letter also said defense
forces had returned fire on
an armed group's convoy in
the area. "You understand
that in these conditions the
threat of AQIM must-be tak-
en seriously," said the letter,
which was printed in full on
the Web site of Le Monde
newspaper.
Areva said in a statement
that the letter was part of its
regular, contacts with Niger
officials, and that the compa-
ny's deputy for security had
visited the region for a week
starting September 7 to meet
with Niger officials, who
offered "no particular infor-
mation" about a threat.
A manwho worked for
Areva and his wife were
among those kidnapped near
the Niger mining town of
Arlit. The other five work for
a subcontractor called Satom.
Al-Qaida in the Islamic
Maghreb, or North Africa, is
an affiliate of Osama bin
Laden's group. It grew out of
an Islamist insurgency move-
ment in Algeria, merging with
al-Qaida in 2006 and spread-
ing through the region.

Ahmadinejad blames capitalism for poverty


By EDITH M LEDERER
Associated Press Writer

UNITED NATIONS (AP)
- Iran's president on Tues-
day predicted the defeat of
capitalism and blamed global
big business for the suffering
of millions, but Germany's
chancellor said market
economies were key to lifting
the world's least developed
countries out of poverty.
The clash of visions at the
UN anti-poverty summit drew
a line under the stark differ-
ences on easing the misery of
the one billion people living
on less than $1.25 a day.
More than 140 presidents,
prime ministers and kings are
attending the three-day sum-
mit which started Monday to
assess and spur on achieve-
ment of UN targets set by
world leaders in 2000. The
plan called for an intensive
global campaign to ease
poverty, disease and inequal-
ities between rich and poor
by 2015.
Iranian President Mah-
moud Ahmadinejad, howev-
er, never mentioned the Mil-
lennium Development Goals
in his speech to the 192-mem-
ber General Assembly.
Instead, he took aim atecap-
italism and called for the
overhaul of "undemocratic
and unjust" global decision-
making bodies, which are
dominated by the United
States and other Western
powers. While Ahmadinejad
didn't single out any country,
he said world leaders, thinkers
and global reformers should
"spare no effort"' to make
practical plans for a Rew.
world order reform of
international economic and
political institutions.
"It is my firm belief that in
the new millennium, we need
to revert to the divine mind-

ing nature of mankind, and

And in Africa, Asia and

been a lack of progress in

deaths, increasing the num-
ber of people with access to
basic sanitation, and promot-
ing women's equality. Ban is
expected to launch a new ini-
tiative Wednesday to spur
action on improving the lot
of women and children.
I his speech, Ahmadine-
jad did not mention Iran's
nuclear programme or the
four rounds of UN Security
Council sanctions over
Tehran's refusal to prove it is
not trying to build a nuclear
weapon. Iran.claims it is only
working on nuclear power to
generate electricity.
The subject may be raised
again Thursday when the
General Assembly's annual
ministerial meeting begins.
Russian Foreign Minister
Sergey Lavrov raised the
sanctions issue in his speech,
saying UN sanctions were not
intended to' harm ordinary
civilians. He voiced "serious
concern" at additional sanc-
tions imposed by individual
countries.
The criticism appeared
aimed at the United States,
the European Union, Aus-
tralia, Canada, Japan and
South Korea, all of whom
have imposed their own much
tougher sanctions on Tehran.
"We are convinced that
such practice contradicts the
efforts to achieve the MDGs
and must be brought to an
end," Lavrov said, using the
initials of the Millennium
Development Goals.
To counter these threats,
Lavrov said Russia was ready
to help with information and
communication technology
"to bridge the gap between
the developed and develop-
ing countries and as a
result to promote global
development."


President Ellen Johnson
Sirleaf of Liberia, one of the
world's poorest nations that
has made progress because of
the goals, said Africa "still has
far to go" but if efforts are
intensified "we will, ultimate-
ly, achieve them."
"My message is this: As we
renew our resolve in 2010, we
must recognize the need for
inclusive economic growth.
We need rapid, stable, and
sustained growth that creates
jobs, especially for youth and
in sectors that benefit the
poor, and expands opportu-
nities for women," she said.
Pakistan's Foreign Minis-
ter Shah Mahmood Qureshi
said until a few years ago his
country was on track to
achieve a number of the
MDGs, but the fight against
terrorism and the recent
unprecedented flooding "have
changed almost everything."
The MDGs remain "the
centerpiece" of Pakistan's
development programme, he
said, but the rehabilitation of
flood-ravaged areas will cost
billions and will impact eco-
nomic recovery and achieve-
ment of the UN goals.
At events on the sidelines
of, the summit, US Secretary
of State Hillary Rodham Clin-
ton launched a programme to
address chronic malnutrition
blamed for 3.5 million mater-
nal and child deaths a year.
The programme, co-spon-
sored by the Irish govern-
ment, focuses on the first
1,000 days of a child's life,
during which nutrition is crit-
ical to mental and physical
development.
Later, Clinton helped
launch a new programme to
place cleaner cooking stoves
in 100 million homes by 2020.
.She said unsafe stfves expose
as many as three billion peo-
ple to toxic chemicals and
smoke, and upgrading them
can save and improve "mil-
lions of lives."


Commonwealth Games at risk with under two weeks left


By C. RAJSHEKHAR RAO
AP Sports Wrifer

NEW DELHI (AP) -
One of the world's biggest
sports events is in jeopardy as
organizers struggle to cope
with unfinished buildings, an
athletes' village described as
"unfit for human habitation,"
a bridge collapse, concerns
over security and corruption,
and an outbreak of dengue
fever.
The October 3-14 Com-
monwealth Ganies, which
bring together .more than
7,000 athletes from the 71
countries and territories every
four years, was supposed to
showcase the emerging power
of India just as the 2008
Beijing Olympics did for Chi-
na.
Instead, the Ne'w Delhi
Games are highlighting the
problems in the developing
nation of more than 1 billion
people that is still plagued by
vast areas of poverty.
The frenzied, last-minute
preparations are in such dis-
array with less than two
weeks before the opener that
some officials are speculating
that a few teams could with-
draw or the event could be
called off.
The latest blow came Tues-
day, with the collapse of a
footbridge being built to con-
nect the main stadium to a
parking lot. Police said 23
construction workers were
injured, five seriously.
Hours earlier, the Com-
monwealth Games Federa-
tion urged the Indian govern-
ment to finish work on the
athletes' village, which is due
to open Thursday. In addition
to shoddy conditions inside
and outside the buildings,
there also are problems with
plumbing, wiring, furnishings,
Internet access and cell phoffe
coverage.
"We have to continue to
push our concerns at the high-
est level and you can't get
higher than the Cabinet office
of the country and the prime
minister," Commonwealth
Games Federation chief exec-
utive Mike Hooper told The
Associated Press. "They have
to come up with a clear plan
to meet the needs of athletes
and show they can provide
consistent standards."
The games have historical-
ly been dominated by Eng-
land, Australia and Canada,
and all three have voiced con-
cerns about the conditions in


India.
"It's hard to cancel.an event
of this magnitude, but we are
close to the wire, and teams
may start to take things into
their own hands," England
chef de mission Craig Hunter
told Britain's Press Associa-
tion. "Athletes will start get-
ting on planes soon and deci-
sions will have to be made.
We need new levels of reas-
surance."
Australian discus world
champion Dani Samuels and
England's triple jump world
champion Phillips Odowu
both withdrew' from the
games Tuesday, citing con-
cerns over health and security.
SAustralia's federal sports
minister Mark Arbib, who is
due to travel to New Delhi
next week, told Sky News on
Wednesday that "there could
be a number more who made
that decision," to follow
Samuels' lead and withdraw
from the games.
Scotland said its team's liv-
ing area was "unsafe and unfit
for human habitation." Aus-
tralia's chef de mission,
,retired marathon runner
Steve Moneghetti, said Indian
organizers "have got two days
to do what's probably going
to take about two weeks."
Commonwealth Games
Canada director of sport Scott
Stevenson said housing facili-
ties were not "anything like
what was promised."
Although no one has said
they will pull out, New
Zealand team manager Dave
Currie had some of the
strongest words for organis-,
ers.
"If the village is not ready
and athletes can't come, obvi-
ously the implications of that
are that (the event) is not
going to happen," Currie told
New Zealand radio network
newstalkZB.
The chaos has severely
dented India's hopes of using
the games as a springboard
for a bid to host the Olympics
in 2020 or 2024.
The International Olympic
Committee carries out more
rigorous and frequent inspec-
tions of host cities to make
sure that construction dead-
lines are met. The process has
been tightened further since
the delays that dogged prepa-
rations for the 2004 Athens
Olympics.
The games in India are only
the third to be staged outside
Britain, Canada, Australia
and New Zealand. Kingston,


Jamaica held the 1966 edition,
then known as the British
Empire and Commonwealth
Games, and Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia, was the only Asian
city to host the-event in 1998.
New Delhi, India's capital
and home to more than 12'
million people, was chosen to
host the -19th edition of the
Commonwealth Games in
November 2003, beating out
Hamilton, Ontario. Between
then and 2008, the country
did little to prepare.
Organising committee sec-
retary general Lalit Bhanot
said the situation at the vil-
lage was normal. .
"All games face such prob-


lems and they will be resolved
before the athletes come in,"
Bhanot said. "These are not
going to affect the games in
any way as all venues are
ready to. host the games."
Even Hooper called the
problems "fixable."
He said he would not spec-
ulate on whether the games
would take place, adding:
"The games start on the third
of October and everything
that has to be done must be
done."'
Hooper said newspaper
reports of human excrement
,around the village were true.
The BBC, the games' biggest
and most influential broad-


caster, has detailed the .trou-
bles on its website and called
the state of the village "shock-
ing."
"This is a very serious mat-
ter and it needs the attention
of the government of India to
deploy whatever resources
are necessary to fix and
address it," Hooper said. "A
massive deep clean is required
and it needs to be done."
Aside from the bridge col-
lapse and the unfinished con-
struction, the buildup to the
games has been plagued by
poor ticket sales and mon-
soons. Organisers said last
month that only 50,000 tickets
had been sold, out of 2.3 mil-


lion available.
Two weeks ago, the Indian
capital was hit by an outbreak
of dengue fever, and heavy
rains have contributed both
to the problem of the mos-
quito-borne virus and floods.
Although the government
played down the threat of
dengue fever, doctors in New
Delhi's private clinics said
they were inundated with
dengue patients and accused
the government of vastly
understating the situation.
The stagnant water of the
Yamuna River next to the
athletes' village certainly has-
n't quelled fears of infection
for visiting teams.

Clinton


pushes




Sudan on




referendum


By MATTHEW LEE
Associated Press Writer
NEW YORK (AP) Sec-
retary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton is urging
Sudanese authorities to make
up for. lost time in preparing
for an independence referen-
dum early next year for the
Southern Sudan.
On the sidelines of the UN
General Assembly in New
York, Clinton met Tuesday
with Sudan's Vice President
Ali Osman Taha to impress
upon him the need for a well-
organised and. peaceful vote
in January. With just over 100
days until the referendum,
preparations are far behind
schedule.
There are also fears that a
vote splitting the south and


north will re-ignite a bloody
civil war that ended in 2005.
Clinton's talks with Taha
come ahead of a high-level
UN session on Sudan that
President Barack Obama will
attend on Friday.
Taha and the President of
southern Sudan Salva Kiir will
also participate in the meet-
ing.
Sudan activists have
warned that urgent interna-
tional diplomatic intervention
is the only way to prevent
renewed civil war.
Underscoring the concern,
Clinton and the foreign min-
isters of Britain and Norway
released a letter Tuesday that
they sent to Taha and Kiir last
week appealing to them "to
take swift action to ensure" a
peaceful vote that recognizes


the will of the people.
"There remains an enor-
mous amount to be done and
work must be accelerated to
make up for lost time," they
said in the letter.
Southern Sudan, which is
predominantly animist and
Christian, is scheduled to vote
on independence January 9.
But the group charged with
organising the vote has,not
yet set a date for voter regis-
tration.
The Obama administration
has said it is "inevitable" the
south will declare indepen-
dence.
Given the south's substan-
tial known oil resources, many
worry that the predominantly
Muslim north will find it dif-
ficult to accept an indepen-
dent south.

southern capital of Juba on Thursday, Sept. 9, 2010. The event, which drew hundreds of supporters, aimed
to bolster pro-independence sentiment ahead of an independence referendum scheduled for January 9,
'2011. The referendum will determine whether south Sudan formally secedes from the nbrth and forms a
new, independent country. Pro-independence groups plan to hold similar events on the 9th of each month
until the referendum.

Ali Center starting global





peace gardens project


By BRUCE SCHREINER
Associated Press Writer
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP)
Muhammad Ali was back
in the limelight Tuesday in his
hometown, surrounded by'
children who had toiled in a
schoolyard garden that
inspired a global initiative to
cultivate tolerance and peace
through food.
The boxing great and his
wife, Lonnie, promoted the
launch of "Muhammad Ali
Center Peace Gardens,"
aimed at teaching children
how to build gardens to help
them learn not only about
nutrition, but also respect for
different cultures.
As part of a teacher-led
pilot project, students at John
F Kennedy Montessori Ele-'
mentary School helped plant,
nurture and harvest vegeta-
bles representing popular
foods in cultures around thte
world.
The youngsters also pitched
in to help turn the vegetables
into menu dishes served Tues-'
day. Some of the bounty was
donated to'a local food bank.
About 600 children,
preschoolers to fifth graders,
filled the floor of the
Louisville school's gym to
cheer Ali, whose well-known
battle with Parkinson's dis-
ease has left him mostly silent
and made public appearances
rare. .
He was seated for the near-
ly hourlong event and
beamed when a child came
on stage to talk about the pro-
ject.
His wife, Lonnie Ali, used
the school's own ethnic diver-
sity to make a point about the

album

PORT-AU-PRINCE,
Haiti (AP) Wyclef Jean
has officially ended his bid
for Haiti's presidency.
A statement sent Tuesday
by his publicist says the
singer is leaving Haitian pol-
itics to promote a new
album.
Jean's candidacy ended
last month when the
Caribbean country's eight-
member provisional elec-
toral council left him and
more than a dozen other
hopefuls off the ballot.
Nineteen candidates were
approved. '
No official reasons were
given for the exclusions.
Jean is presumed not to
have met constitutional
requirements including liv-
ing in Haiti. He lives in New,
Jersey.
The announcement ends
speculation the singer would
contest the disqualification,
though the council does not
allow appeals.
The election is slated for
November 28.

and state their 'ethnic heritage.
It turned into a geography les-
son, as children shyly said
their families were from such
places, as Bosnia, Russia, Chi-

Lonnie Ali told the children
'the opportunity to learn about


different cultures is important
as the world becomes more
closely connected through the
Internet and other technolo-.

different and they come from

Hurricane Igor storms





Canada with heavy rains


ST JOHN'S, Newfound-
land (AP) Hurricane Igor
pelted eastern Canada with
heavy rain Tuesday, flooding
communities, washing out
roads and stranding some res-
idents in their homes.
In the Pacific, a mild tropi-
cal storm formed and was
expected to cross the Mexi-
can resort area of Baja Cali-
fornia later in the day.
The Canadian Hurricane
Centre said Igor had trans-
formed into a "post-tropical"
storm, which has a different
structure from a hurricane but
still packs the same punch.
The storm was battering New-
foundland, on Canada's east-
ern coast.
The Hurricane Centre said

Red Cross: Urban dwellers suffer disaster risks


BEIJING (AP) With the
majority of people on Earth
now living in towns and cities,
urban dwellers in middle and
low income nations face rising
threats from natural disasters,
violence and health hazards, a
Red Cross report said Tues-
day.
Risks are exacerbated by
rapid urbanization, poor local
governance, population
growth and the worsening of
natural disasters due to' glob-
al warming, according to the


World Disasters Report com-
piled by the International
Federation of Red Cross and
Red Crescent Societies.
"There are now one billion
urban dwellers living in slums.1
If the conditions don't
improve, more people will be
affected in the case of major
disasters like the Haiti earth-
quake," Alistair Henley,,
director of IFRC's Asia Pacif-
ic region,,said at a news con-
ference Tuesday.
This year's report shifted


its focus to hazards in cities
in part because the develop-
ment of disaster aid to urban
dwellers has not kept up with
the rapid, pace of urbaniza-
tion.
The number of urban
dwellers reached 3.5 billion
this year, compared with 3.4
billion rural residents, the
report said. '
Of all the disasters, seismic
activity killed the most people.
- an average of 50,484 peo-
ple pet year from 2000 to


2008, the report said. In 2009,
natural disasters killed 10,551
people, a figure expected to
be substantially higher this
year with Haiti's earthquake
alone killing as many as
'300,000"people.
Technological disasters
such as industrial accidents
,and mine or chemical plant
explosions killed 6,707 last
year, the report said.'
Henley said slum dwellers
in Africa, Latin America and
Southeast Asia are at


increased risk as a result of
health hazards and urban vio-
lence stemming from govern-
ment repression and groups
fighting for scarce resources
such as food and basic neces-
sities.
The report called for'
heightened disaster prepara-
tion and more government
funding for health care and,
security, while also urging the
nurturing of community orga-
nizations and private sector
initiatives.

Landslide


kills five in

Mexico

MEXICO CITY (AP) -
A landslide buried several
cars and killed ,at least five
people in the latest disaster
blamed on weeks of heavy
rains that have caused havoc
in central and southern Mex-
ico, authorities said Tuesday.
Rocks and mud tumbled
down a bill onto a. highway
Monday night in Villa Guer-:
rero, a town south of Mexico
City, spid local Civil Protec-
Stion official Maria Enriquez.
Five bodies were pulled out,
and an unknown number of ;
people were missing.
More than 70 people have ,
died during the rainy season
-in Mexico, which has been
one of the heaviest on record,
national Civil Protection
Coordinator Director Laura ,
Gurza said at a news confer-
ence. Her figures did not
include the latest landslide.
Huge swaths of southern
Mexico were still under water
Tuesday flooding exacer-
bated by the passage last
week of Hurricane Karl. At
least 15 deaths were blamed
on the hurricane.
Thousands of people are in
shelters, with water reaching
rooftops in some towns in the
Gulf Coast states of Tabasco
and Veracruz.
"This is way above normal.
Rains in some zones have
reached historic levels,"
Gurza said.
Tropical Storm Georgette,
meanwhile; smacked into the
resort-studded Baja Califor-
nia peninsula, where boat
owners scrambled to tie down
yachts, restaurant workers
hauled in chairs and tables,
and tourists hunkered down
inside luxury hotels for board
games and spa sessions.
The storm kicked up high
surf, but Gurza said it was
mild and did not pose a major
threat.

3 Dominican police officers suspected in deadly drug deal


SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican
Republic (AP) Three Dominican
police officers have been arrested
for their alleged involvement in a
drug deal that ended with the decap-


itation of two men.
Police chief Jose Amado Polanco
said Tuesday that the officers under
investigation all belong to the nar-
cotics division.


The two victims were found Sep-
tember 12 in a rural area of San
Cristobal province.
4 Their heads and hands were found
separately.


Police spokesman Nelson Rosario
says one of the victims, Marcos
Figueroa Ferreira, allegedly stole 3.5
kilograms (7.5 pounds) of heroin
from traffickers who used him to


ferry drugs from the Dominican
Republic to Puerto Rico.
One of the arrested police officers
allegedly seized half the stolen hero-
in to sell in Santo Domingo.


DEADLY BATTLE: A dead gunman, wearing military fatigues, lies face down after a raid and gun
battl'in the vicinity of Ciudad Mier in northern Mexico, near the US border earlier this month.
Soldiers killed at least 25 suspected cartel members after troops moved in the area where mil-

bust in Ohio

CLEVELAND (AP) -
Cracking an international
drug-smuggling ring netted 44
pounds of heroin in what
authorities believe is the.
Biggest seizure 9fthe drug in
Ohio history, officials said
S-Tuesday.
Twenty-four suspects,
named in an indictment, face
charges including heroin pos-
session and drug trafficking.
The charges carry possible life
prison terms.
"This case is no takedown
of street-corner drug dealers,"
US Attorney Steven Dettel-
*bach said at a news confer-
ence at police headquarters.
"This is a takedown of a
sophisticated drug-trafficking


organisation and network.,"
The case began with feder-
al surveillance of the Colom-
bia-to-Miami drug pipeline.
Authorities said heroin was
smuggled from Colombia,
Mexico and Nigeria and sent
to Cleveland to be resold to
streetealers.
The seized heroin has a
street value in the millions of
dollars, according to Dettel-
bach, the top federal prose-
cutor in northern Ohio.,
The government also is
seeking nearly $2 million in
confiscated cash and the for-
feiture of homes in Cleveland
and suburban Cleveland

Ohio authorities


announce large


marijuana bust

By ANDREW WELSH-HUGGINS
Associated Press Writer
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) State and federal authorities say
they've uncovered another large marijuana growing opera-
tion in Ohio with possible ties to Mexico..
Investigators said Tuesday the operation in Logan and Musk-
ingum counties involved thousands of plants and may be con-
nected to Mexican nationals cultivating and trafficking mari-
juana in Ohio. They say there have been multiple arrests.
The state Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation
says officials have seized more marijuana plants in sixbSveeks
than all of last year.
Last month state and local officials found about 22,000 mar-
ijuana plants in a small village in southern Ohio called Latham.
Authorities nationally say growers with ties to Mexican traf-
fickers are planting large marijuana plots on public land.


SACRAMENTO, Califor-
nia (AP) A coalition of
medical marijuana advocates
is coming out against a Cali-
fornia ballot initiative that
would legalize the drug for
recreational use and tax sales.
Cannabis
The California Cannabis
Association said Tuesday that
Proposition 19 would inad-
vertently harm patients by
allowing local governments to
prohibit the sale and purchase
of marijuana in their jurisdic-


tions.
. The group predicts many
cities and counties would
impose such a ban if voters
approve the initiative, leav-
ing local medical marijuana
users with few options.
The measure's supporters
say it explicitly protects
patients' rights and would
provide them with safer and
easier access to the drug.
If Proposition 19 passes in
November, California would
be the first state to legalize
and regulate recreational pot
use.


Cleveland Deputy Police
Chief Ed Tomba said illegal
drug operations translate into
unsafe streets.
"The role of narcotics in
street violence is very preva-
lent," he said. "It's the profits
drugs that really, T.hbelieve,
kind of begets the violence .
when you're talking millions
of dollars and hundreds of
thousands of dollars to be
made in illegal profits."
Attorneys for two alleged
ringleaders declined corn-
ment. Christopher Sapp, 45,

in from Cleveland '!stash

Economy, disasters




imperil m illons


By BETH FOUHY
Associated Press Writer
NEW YORK (AP) Former
President Bill Clinton on Tuesday
Warned of the growing devasta-
tion of the global economic down-
turn and said the dangers posed by
natural disasters around the world
had been increased by the effects
of climate change.
The former president spoken
New York on the first day of the
,annual Clinton Global Initiative.
The conference brings together
leaders from government, busi-
ness and philanthropy, who make
financial commitments aimed at
tackling poverty and disease
.around the world.
Clinton announced new finan-
cial commitments to help Haiti
recover from the effects of a mas-.
sive earthquake last January, and


to Pakistan, where monsoon rains
led to deadly flooding last sum-
mer. He also announced a new
programme to help Louisiana's
gulf coast, which is still recovering
from the massive oil spill and the
effects of Hurricane Katrina five
years ago.
Clinton said the gulf region had
been hit by "everything but a
plague of locusts" and said climate
change had-made events like hur--
ricanes and flooding more fre-
quent and deadly.
"There is every reason to
believe the incident of economi-
cally devastating natural disasters
will accelerate around the world
with he changing of the climate,"
Clinton said, urging governments
and world leaders to be better pre-
pared for such events.
Clinton also pressed attendees
on the need to educate and


empower women and girls in
developing countries, saying the
global economy would improve
with women's full participation.
"There are still.a lot of places in,
this world where women are part
human and part property and
where men define their meaning
in life," Clinton said.
The former. president's wife,
Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton, spoke at the confer-
ence to announced a new pro-
gramme to place cleaner stoves in
100 million homes by 2020. The
programme primarily targets
women and girls, who do most of
the world's cooking.
Clinton said, as many as three
billion people cooking meals every
day are exposed to toxic chemi-
cals and smoke using unsafe
stoves, That exposure leads to a
range of respiratory illnesses like


pneumonia and lung cancer and
puts greenhouse gases into the air,
which contributes to climate
change.
"I know this may sound hard to
believe, but by upgrading these
stoves, millions of lives could be
saved and improved. They could
be as transformative as bed nets or
vaccines," Clinton said, adding
that the US government would
contribute $50 million to help
launch the program.
Bill Clinton largely steered clear
of politics during the conference,
but said at one point he wished
more world leaders made their
decisions based on facts.
"Do you know how many polit-
ical and economic decisions are
made in this world by people who
don't know what in the living day-
lights they are talking about?"
.Clinton said.


UK: No elections

next year in the

Turks and Caicos

By DAVID McFADDEN
Associated Press Writer
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) An
election to return self governance for
Turks and Caicos Islands has been post-
poned, a British Foreign Office minister
announced Tuesday, extending London's
direct rule over the island dependency.
Henry Bellingham, the minister for
overseas territories, said that elections
set for 'July 2011 would be delayed to
allow time for anti-corruption and good-
government reforms to take effect in the
islands some 500 miles (800 kilometers)
southeast of Florida.
Britain imposed direct rule on Turks
and Caicos in August 2009 after a gov-
ernment probe into allegations that local
leaders misused public money and prof-
ited from the sale of government-owned
land to developers.
The UK suspended the government
and legislature and put the London-
appointed governor in direct charge.
"We want elections to take place as
soon as practicable. But I have conclud-
ed that more time is needed," Belling-
ham said in a statement from the UK.
Foreign and Commonwealth Office at
the close of a short visit to Turks and
Caicos.
In a radio address to islanders, Belling-
ham said he would announce the
"remaining milestones which will have
to be met before elections can take
place." He said the vot6 should be held
"as soon as practicable."
"Ultimately, we all want to see TCI
stand on its own two feet," he said.
The islands' former opposition party
called the decision an insult and a "bla-
tant attempt to further separate Turks
and Caicos Islanders from our funda-

"We demand, here and -now, for a

Movement, which previously welcomed
the British effort to clean up politics in
the territory.
An interim government led.by Lon-
don-appointed Gov. Gordon Wetherell
was created after Britain appointed a
panel to look into allegations of corrup-

Public hearings revealed Misick spent

including a leased Rolls-Royce. Misick
has denied any wrongdoing and
described the British corruption probe
as "modern-day colonialism."
Earlier this year, the former premier
put his 11,000-square-foot (1,022-square-

Government protects



generation property



landowners with Land



Adjudication Bill


GENERATION property
landowners can rest assured
that they will receive govern-
ment protection for the legal
right to land titles given to
them by ancestors.
Many residents in the Fam-
ily Islands have been living in
limbo, due to the lack of prop-
er entitlement that protects
them in the succession of gen-
erational property.
"Some of you are caught
up in occupation of.what is
known as generational land,
that is land initially granted
to your ancestors who died in
estate or without leaving a
Last Will and Testament,"
said Byran Woodside, Minis-
ter of State for Lands and
Local Government.
"Therefore, though the off-
spring may occupy the land,
no free hold title can be had
by anyone, except in very
peculiar circumstances, where
all the interested parties agree
for the distribution of the land
in question, thus, allowing for
proper survey and drawing up
of conveyances."
The new 2010 Land Adju-
dication Bill gives these
landowners the legal power
to contest the absence of a
Last Will and Testament in a
court of law. It resolves issues
concerning land succession
rights to lands on which these
owners are currently living.
The government is correct-
ing the loophole that exposes
rightful owners to exploita-
tion of the "no free hold title"
problem. These new land
titles will give Bahamian
landowners the option to mar-
ket the land.
"The Adjudication Bill will
provide a forum for families
to petition the Adjudication
t Office to hear their claim and

concerns of Family Islanders

to them by the;r ancestors.

make a decision,- which will
allow them to be awarded a
certificate of title that is mar-
ketable," said Mr
Woodside.
Prior to a growing illegal
immigration problem, estate-
planning measures were not
previously required because
succession was automatically
assumed within Bahamian
families.
However, the phenomenon
of illegal squatters reportedly
abusing the 1925 Quieting of
Titles Act has persuaded the
government to deflect the
opportunity for exploitation,
particularly in remote areas
of the Family Islands.
"In the past, the provisions
of the Quieting of Titles-Act


have been the bedrock of
dealing with contentious land
matters. This is a costly under-
taking, since it requires the
attendance before a Supreme.
Court judge," said Mr Wood-
side.
"Quiet matters often drag
on for years and families who
do not have the means to con-
tinue the matter end up losing
what is rightfully their
birthright. For the Family
Island resident, this could
prove to be a nightmare, as
cost doubles and sometimes
triples with-travel, accommo-
dations, and other incidental
and legal costs could amount
to equal the value of the land
in contention."
For the last .40 years,
Bahamians have been dis-
turbed by the rising compli-
cations and costs to protect
their lands.
"Many times, Family Island
residents give in, not because
they do not believe in their
fight for what may prove to
be rightfully theirs, but
because it becomes too pro-
hibitive for them to contin-
ue," said Mr Woodside.
The government's mani-
festo commits to addressing
outstanding land issues. Its
disposition is outlined in the
Land Use Policy and Admin-
istration Project (LUPAP),
which was completed in Octo-
ber 2009.
With new technology to
record, cadastral data and
satellite images of land
boundaries, the 2010 Bill also
combines the efforts of the
Lands and Surveys Depart-
ment, the Department of the
Registrar General and the
Valuation Section of the
Department of Real Property
Taxes.

The bidding:
East South West North
Pass 44 4 NT 54
Dble
Opening lead ace of clubs.
This deal occurred at the 1984
World Team Olympiad in the semi-
final match between France and
Denmark. The French won the 64-
board battle by the relatively narrow
margin of 15 International Match
Points, and most of that came from
this hand.
When Michel Perron and Paul
Chemla of France were North-South,
the bidding went as shown. West's
four-notrump bid was explained by
East as showing both minor suits,
and after North raised four spades to
five, the Danish East doubled.
Chemla ruffed the club opening


and led the queen of hearts to West's
ace. West returned a trump to his
partner's ace, and East continued
with a trump to prevent South from
ruffing a heart loser in dummy. How-
ever, even these efforts proved to be
fruitless.
Declarer won the spade return in
his hand, ran all his trumps, cashed
the king of hearts and king of dia-
monds, then led a diamond and
finessed the jack. As a result, lhe
inade the contract for a score of 850
points.
At the other table, with a Danish
pair North-South, the bidding went:
East South West North
Pass 4 4 4 NT Pass
5 Pass Pass Pass !!
North's meek pass of five clubs,
holding six trumps and an ace, was
probably generated by the fear that a
double might chase the enemy into
five hearts, where they seemed likely
to do well. In fact, with best defense,
five hearts goes down only two, so
North was at least partly correct. But
since West had already indicated a
minor-suit hand, it is doubtful that
either opponent would have run to
hearts.
As it was, five clubs undoubled

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
A client of a former
Bahamian broker/dealer,
which collapsed after sustain-
ing a $25 million trading
'black hole', has alleged it is
suffering "loss and damage"
as a result of the liquidator's
failure to date to return some
$277,735 of its assets. It is also
vigorously denying the liq-
uidator's claim that it wrong-
ly received $562,987 from the
broker after it was placed


under Supreme Court-super-
vised liquidation.
Andrew Crosbie-Jones, a
.director of Bahamas-based
financial institution, The Pri-
vate Trust Corporation, in an
August 16, 2010, affidavit filed
in the Supreme Court to sup-
port a summons filed on
behalf of Ingelby Holdings,
alleged that Caledonia Cor-
porate Management's liq-
uidator had failed to justify
why he had not returned the
company's assets. Nor had he
produced documentary evi-


dence to back his conclusion
that Ingelby had received a
'preference' through the
$562,987 payment.
The affidavit, which is sup-
porting a summons seeking a
Supreme Court order requir-
ing liquidator Anthony Kiki-
varakis, the Deloitte &
Touche (Bahamas) partner,
to transfer a mix of cash and
securities that Caledonia held
on Ingelby's behalf, is evi-

Mediterranean Shipping
Company's (MSC) move to
increase container delivery
charges by 145.8 per cent
was yesterday slammed as
"certainly not acceptable"
by the Grand Bahama
Chamber of Commerce's
president, given that the
business community and
consumers could "ill afford"
such a burden in the current
economic climate.
Urging MSC and the
island's trucking companies
to come to an amicable solu-
tion, K P Turnquest
expressed concern that
Grand Bahama and
Freeport businesses, who
relied*on MSC to import
their container shipments,
would "have no choice" but
to pass on the increased
trucking delivery charges to
consumers.
"The significant increase
MSC is talking about pass-
ing on to customers is cer-
tainly not acceptable, par-
ticularly at this time in
Grand Bahama," Mr Turn-
quest told Tribune Business.
"It's a significant concern.
"Grand Bahama is not
doing well economically,
and to increase the cost bur-
den on suppliers is some-
thing that will obviously be
passed.on to consumers. It's
afi increase that we can ill
afford at this time.
, "It's not going to help
business for sure. They will
have no choice but to go up
in cost, and will have to pass
it on."
MSC, which is also a sig-
nificant shareholder in the
Freeport Container Port
(the second largest behind
its partner, Hutchison
Whampoa), has more than
doubled the container deliv-
ery charges from $120 per
container to $295.
This sparked a firestorm
of protest from Grand
Bahama-based trucking
companies, who feared the
fee increase was part of a
plan that would see MSC
grant exclusive rights to one
company to move its con-

$857m resort faces

difficulty 'getting

back on its feet'

New Providence's South Ocean 'in a state of
some limbo in terms of governance' as wait
continues for arbitration ruling confirmation
Financing partner calls for 'closure and
finality', accusing former developer partner
of employing '11th hour delay tactics'

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
An $857 million Bahamian resort development project will
"find it very difficult to get back on its feet and move for-
ward" unless the New York courts quickly determine
whether to affirm an arbitration ruling, its financier alleging
that its former partner is employing "11th hour delay tactics"
to prevent this happening.
Attorneys for Plainfield Asset Management and its invest-
ment vehicle, Seaside Heights, were successful in helping to
persuade Judge Shirley Kornreich not to recuse herself in the
face of pressure from their former South Ocean resort part-
ner, RHS Ventures and its principal, Roger Stein, whq had
submitted a motion to disqualify her from the case.
The .40-page transcript of the August 5, 2010, hearing,
which will go a long way towards determining the immedi-
ate fate of the South Ocean project, and prospects for the
southwestern New Providence resort's redevelopment, saw
Justice Kornreich find that recusing herself would "preju-
dice" Plainfield, the Connecticut-based hedge fund, by fur-
ther delaying confirmation of the arbitration panel's findings.

Don't just paper




over the cracks


By DEIDRE M. BASTIAN

N.ot all paper is
created equal.
Choosing the
best paper for
printing promotional adver-
tising, sales and marketing lit-
erature can sometimes be
confusing. Knowing the
appropriate paper for your
business card, marketing fly-
ers, newsletters and brochures
can be rewarding.
How much do you know
about paper stock? Until
recently, I didn't know as
much as I should have, as it
didn't seem particularly
important. Nevertheless, with
a little more in-depth under-
standing, I can see why know-
ing about paper stock can har-
monise the entire process and
result in a happy ending for
both parties.
Sometimes clients might
demand the red ink to be a
certain shade for that perfect
flare. But a good designer can
help decide which type of
paper stock will best empha-
sise the different colour
schemes that are being
designed for his client. Noth-
ing can be more frustrating
for a client than to receive a
large delivery of printed mat-
ter that just doesn't have the
anticipated feel.
Have you ever had a client
ask why their marketing
material hasn't printed the
colour they requested? Their
first reaction is normally to
point the finger in the direc-
tion of the designer in an irate
manner. They are probably
correct to place blame upon
the designers, as they should
always declare upfront that
colours can look considerably
different depending on the
type of paper stock used.
Graphic designers, like other
professions, should take on-
the role of a teacher, provid-
ing their client with an under-


standing of critical factors
impacting product finish. One
of my favorite axioms is:,
"Knowing is half the battle",
and here I explain why.
This theory goes a long
way. While the grade, grain
and colour of paper used
affects the colour of the ink,
the light under which you're
looking at the printed product
can dramatically impact the
colour tone as well. It reminds
me of an observation while at
the supermarket of how meat
departments enhance the
colour of their product dis-
plays with different lighting,
giving it a fresher appearance.
(This is all in the name of
business marketing!)

Perspective
To give a little perspective,
it is necessary for print hous-
es to determine which paper
weight and finish produces
the best possible printing
quality. This is vital, as most
offset printing paper isn't
capable of undergoing expo-
sure to the heat of the fusion
rollers. Furthermore, it is the
client's responsibility to
inquire about the type of dig-
ifal devices the printer uses,
and to learn what papers have
been approved for digital pro-
duction.
"I did not know that paper
could affect the way the final


products turn out'". es. it
can, and to alle' late process-
ing problems. clients should
always demand a prool before
signing-ofl on print jobs A
PDF proof \fll not produce
the true result of the colour *
prints, so the key is to display
the design from one medium
to another. It is also advisable
for a commercial printer to
include proof costs in the
print job. If not this process
could easily glide into a pro-
bono handshake and continue
for a long time before it even
sees the finish line.
For example, if a particu- :
lar paper is very expensive
but your print run is of a low "
quantity, the price of paper is
not much of an overall cost
factor in the final price.
Equally, if your print run is
large, the paper can be a sig- -
nificant cost factor, so
depending on design and
print, the cost should be mea-
sured on a sliding scale.
Moreover, the paper you
choose determines the cor-
rectness of colour, the bright-
ness and sharpness, as well as-
the tactile (feel) of the fina4 -
printed job. Choosing a lighr J
weight paper will probably ,i
cost a little less, and definite-
'ly feel cheap.
For example, if you are ,/
printing business cards, or ,
anything requiring a card
stock, your best choice for
high quality printing is heavy
14 pt, or even heavier 16 pt
card stock that is gloss coated
on both sides.
Coated stock is referred to

'New vision'



needed to.



fight 'stalled'



GB growth

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
Grand Bahama Port Authority (GBPA) licencees and
residents were yesterday again urged to "take control of their
destiny and create a new vision" for their island, an attorney
yesterday acknowledging that Freeport's growth had
"stalled", with new business development over the past 20
years "haphazard".
Carey Leonard, the former in-house counsel at the GBPA,
in an address to Rotary Club of Grand Bahama at Sunrise,
said Grand Bahamians needed to be mindful of what was
happening elsewhere in the world, and external pressures
from bodies such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO)
that might impact their economies, in crafting their own
future. To move Freeport's and Grand Bahama's economy
forward, he said the island needed to assess its own laws,
infrastructure and existing economic base, determining
what competitive advantages it had and what the competi-
tion were doing.

Stalled
"Our. growth has stalled," Mr Leonard said. "There is
no vision for anyone to follow, Yes, some people have,
over the last 20 years or so, brought business to Grand
Ba a, but this has been achieved on a somewhat hap-
ha; by chance manner. There has been no overall vision
for e development of Grand Bahama.
"What we embarked on, nearly two months ago, is an
exciting journey. This journey signals a new beginning, one
where the GBPA licensees, with the help of all those living
in Grand Bahama, take control of their destiny 'and thus cre-
ate a new vision for Grand Bahama's.future."
And he added: "This journey signals a new beginning. The
time for talking is over, indeed, we don't have much time at
all, and what little time we do have, is a time for action, one
where the licensees of the 'Port Area', with the help of all
those living in Grand Bahama, band together and take con-
trol of their destiny, to create a new, .vision for their island,
our island, Grand Bahama's future." I

Plan, to launch this new initiative, a partnership between
public and private sector, so that individuals rather than
receiving their medication or waiting in line at the PMH, or
even some of our public clinics, can attend or visit the private
sector and receive medicine at a participating pharmacy near
to them," Dr Minnis said. Jonathan Wilson, 12, the first Ace
Prescription cardholder to benefit from the plan, suffers from
.asthma along with his sister Raven, 7. Raquel Wilson, moth-
er of Jonathan and Raven, received the first medicine to be
dispensed on behalf of her children.
She spends up to $550 monthly on medicine, and can now
obtain medicine and drug supplies at no cost to treat her
children's condition. "It feels great to know that finally we
have a plan in place whereby we can help one another and I
can help my kids. Instead of buying one medication to share
between two children, it's great to be able to buy two at one
time to make sure that they have enough to last," Mrs. Wilson
said. William Cash, chief financial officer of Lowe's Phar-
macy, said: "We've been watching this since we signed up in
April. There were some tense moments and we thought that
maybe we wouldn't be ready but here we are. Everything is
ready to go. We're welcoming it and a job well done to the
NIB team and the National Prescription Drug Plan,"
Algernon Cargill, director of the National Insurance Board,
said now that first Phase has been launched planning will
begin for Phase II.
"We're very excited that we were finally able to launch the
National Prescription Drug Plan, primarily because we can
now bring prescription medication to thousands of Bahamians
and provide them with the tools in order to manage their
chronic ailments. And now that we've launched Phase I we'll
be able to plan for Phase II, which is going to be even bigger,"
Mr Cargill said.
Tami Francis, its manager, said the Prescription Drug Plan
will positively impact the health and lives'of thousands of
Bahamians some 35,000 in Phase 1 and, eventually, 100,000
persons throughout the length and breadth of The Bahamas.
To date,.30 private pharmacies in 35 locations throughout
the Bahamas and all public pharmacies have signed on to
the NPDP. Phase I of the National Prescription Drug Plan
covers four groups of beneficiaries, including NIB pensioners,
Bahamian citizens over 65 years of age, NIB invalids and
children

POUNDED 1948


Pictured above: Sharon Wilson, Principal; Frank Coyle, Head of Secondary; and current
students of St Andrew's School who received 5 A's or more in recent BGCSE exams

The St Andrew's Schoof Board of (Directors, Administration, Faculty, and Staff congratulate those students
who sat the International (Baccalaureate (IB) (Diploma, Bahamas general Certficate of Secondary Education
(BgCSE), and(Bahamas Junior Certificate ((BJC) exams this past summer, as wellas our student athletes.

The value of a St Andrew's education lies Is In Its emphasis on the well-rounded student, which displayed Itself through exceptional performances both
academically and athletically for the academic year 2009/2010.
International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme
Since 2003, when St Andrew's became the first school in The Bahama's to introduce the IB Diploma Programme, St Andrew's IB graduates have been accepted
into prestigious universities like Harvard, Yale, Tufts, Duke, Brown, University of Pennsylvania, McGill, and Vassar, which are usually out of reach to students
with only BGCSE passes. Research shows that IB students are more successful at university than those with only BGCSE and Advanced Placement (AP) exams.
Performing well above the world average, the St Andrew's IB Diploma students received a 85.7% pass rate in the latest exams, with one student, Molly
Coyle, obtaining the remarkable result of 40 points out of a possible score of 45, and going on to study at Tufts University. Another IB Diploma graduate,
Brolin Xavier, the top BGCSE student in the Bahamas in 2008, received a scholarship to attend LeHigh University with 19 credits toward his degree programme.
Bahamas General Certificate of Secondary Education (BGCSE)
Unlike at other schools, St Andrew's students take their BGCSE exams in Year 11 instead of Year 12. Despite this, the 2009/2010 BGCSE pass rate. (A-C)
for the Year 11 students was 82.4% with 14 students receiving five A's or more.
In the latest BGCSE exam results, 18 out of 19 subjects offered at St Andrew's had a pass rate at 70% or higher. The pass rates are as follows:
4 subjects had a 100% pass rate: Commerce, Art, Geography (with 15 A's and 4 B's), and Graphical Communication.
5 subjects had a pass rate over 90%: Biology, Combined Science, Food. & Nutrition, Keyboarding, and Spanish.
7 subjects had a pass rate over 75%: English Language (with 39 A's), Accounts, Economics, Chemistry, Physics, Music, and French.
2 subjects had a pass rate over 70%: Mathematics with a pass rate of 73%, and English Literature with a 'pass rate of 71%.
Bahamas Junior Certificate (BJC)
Even though the B3JC syllabus is not taught at St Andrew's School, students had a 97.3% pass rate for the 2009/2010 exams. Of the 4 subjects
offered: English, Mathematics, and Social Studies had a 100% pass rate, and General Science had a 90% pass rate.
Athletics
With only 400 students in the Secondary School, the St Andrew's Hurricanes continue to "punch way above their weight" in athletics. A truly notable
year for the -Hurricanes, not only did a number of students represent The Bahamas on national teams, but they also performed well above expectations as a
hool team in all of the core sports: softball, soccer, basketball, volleyball, swimming, and track and field.
The Hurricanes again dominated soccer, winning 3 of 4 divisions, and over the past 3 years, winning 10 of 12 soccer championships. The Senior Boys soccer
team have been champions for 4 consecutive years, and both the Senior Girls and Junior Boys soccer teams have been champions for 3 consecutive years
each. For the past 2 years, the Hurricanes have also won 4 of 6 softball championships. In swimming, the Hurricanes placed 2nd overall. St Andrew's
competed against 13 other schools (12 of which were much larger) in track and field, and still achieved an amazing 4th place.

as 'CIS', meaning coated one
side. C2S indicates the coating
is on both sides. Coated paper
is made with finely polished
clay that allows the ink to sit
on top of the paper rather
than, as with uncoated paper,
where the ink is absorbed into
the fibre.
There are generally two
types of coatings available:
gloss and silk. If a less glossy
matte/ dull finish is preferred,
then choose matte. If you are
printing cards and want the
brightest, glossy printing, you
should choose glossy card
stock with UV coating. UV
coating is a liquid laminate
that seals the ink underneath,
and protects the card from
finger printing, scratching and
scuffing.
If you are printing flyers,
brochures, books or any pro-
motional literature requiring a
lighter quality paper, then
100-pound gloss book weight
is your best choice for a high
quality printed look.


Don't just p

over the crl


Do you know that if you
select a colour from a colour
swatch book and ask 100
printers to print it, you could
easily get 100 different tones?
I am not advocating that you
make yourself an expert on
paper type and printing
process, but a fair knowledge
or principle can assist you in
making the right choice and
saving yourself mega bucks.
In the wake of all of this,
be vigilant and attentive, as
the most costly and troubling
part of the, print job is choos-
ing the incorrect paper stock.
Don't be afraid to ask the
right questions if it means
receiving the correct answers.'

Can you imagine meeting a
deadline with thousands of
spoilt printed materials?
Frankly, I don't think this will
make the client very happy at
all, and could easily result in
serious discontent for the
printer or designer as well. I
believe it is always wise to
analyse or plan your task
beforehand, so as to visualise
any possible failure. Bottom-'

have become dissatisfied with the liquidation's
progress. Mr Kikivarakis did not return a
phone message left by Tribune Business at his
office.
Mr Crosbie-Jones, giving evidence in The
Private Trust Corporation's capacity as trustee
of the trust that owns all Ingelby Holdings'
shares, alleged: "It was the hope of Ingelby
that this matter could be resolved without
requiring Ingelby to issue a summons to com-
pel the-official liquidator to transfer its assets.
"The official liquidator's failure to do so
and to provide evidence to Ingelby justifying
his refusal to do so is causing Ingelby loss and
damage. The assets held by the official liq-
uidator are currently valued at approximately
$277,735."
He further alleged: "The $562,987, which
the official liquidator alleges was received by
Ingelby after Caledonia was placedinto liqui-
dation, were not assets managed by Caledonia.
' These were assets held in a separate account in
Ingelby's name, and which account the for-
mer officers of Caledonia were signatories,
and at no time were these assets administered
by Caledonia. Caledonia has no authority to
deal with these assets.

Method
"In respect of the $5.909 million that was
allegedly transferred, the same method of
holding these accounts was used, and they at
no time constituted assets under the manage-
ment or control of Caledonia."
Mr Crosbie-Jones alleged that Mr Kiki-
varakis had not met with Ingelby's attorneys,
Alexiou, Knowles & Co, "to explain his con-
cerns" regarding the return of Ingelby's assets,
or the conclusions he had drawn in previous
reports to the Supreme Court.
Describing Ingelby as a fiduciary client of
Caledonia, Mr Crosbie-Jones added that the
company had complied with Supreme Court
orders to pay 2 per cent, followed by an addi-.
"tional 8 per cent, of its assets into escrow
accounts to fund the liquidation.
That meant the official liquidator retained 10
per cent of its assets.
After Mr Kikivarakis allegedly failed to tell
Mr Crosbie-Jones why Ingelby's assets had
not been transferred as promised, Alexiou,


Knowles & Co sent the liquidator a letter on
August 26, 2009, demanding that this happen
and that he "give an explanation" for why this
had not happened. Legal action was also
threatened.
In his September 1, 2009, response, Mr Kiki-
varakis alleged that Ingelby had received the
$562,987 after Caledonia was placed into liq-
uidation on February 12, 2008.
He also expressed concern that "the bene-
ficial owner of Ingelby was a preference share-
holder of Caledonia, and received a number of
payments prior to the date Caledonia was
placed into liquidation. It was necessary for
him to meet with the beneficial owner of Ingel-
by prior to approaching the Supreme Court for
the release of assets held on behalf of Ingelby".
In response on September 22,2009, Alexiou,
Knowles & Co asked the liquidator to "identify
the payments allegedly received, the dates the
payments were received, and to whom the
payments were made" in relation to the
$562,987. They purportedly received no
response.
Further correspondence was exchanged,
including an alleged October 15, 2009, letter
asking for a meeting to discuss Mr Kikivarak-
is's concerns regarding this and the alleged
$5.909 million that was sent to five former
Caledonia clients after the firm was placed
into liquidation.
Caledonia collapsed into liquidation after
suffering an almost-$25 million trading loss,
which resulted when Jitney, its Canadian cor-
respondent broker, sold off assets to cover an
overdrawn margin loan balance that was no*
collateralised by the client who had created th
'hole' in question.
That overdrawn balance was in an account
operated nominally by a Ron Wyles, whose
trading activities were directed by George
Georgiou, a Canadian who has since been of
securities fraud in.
Much of the fraudulent activity was alleged-
ly directed from the Caledonid account.
Jitney ended up selling off assets belonging -
to Caledonia clients other than Wyles/Geor-
giou because they were all pooled in one
omnibus account with it, with no segregation.
The duo had allegedly been engaged in short-
selling, a high-risk trading strategy supposed-
ly collateralised by so-called 'penny stocks',
and incurred substantial losses that eventual-
'ly sunk Caledonia. ,

Abaco fuel costs

to burden all

BEC customers

FROM page 1B

was revealed yesterday,
although some $11 million
in construction costs were
saved through abandoning
plans for a fuel pipeline.
Michael Moss, BEC's
chairman, said BEC's cus-
tomers in New Providence
and other Family Islands
will have to partly finance
the Wilson City plant's fuel
costs, after it was decided
that it would be too cum-
bersome just to bill Abaco-
nians for their own fuel.
Mt Moss, speaking at the
Abaco Business Outlook,
said BEC had originally
warned Abaconians that
their choice to switch to
automotive diesel to run
the Wilson City generation
facility, instead of the con-
troversial heavy fuel oil,
Bunker C, would be their
own burden.
However, he explained
that BEC found the devel-
opment of a separate
billing system for Abaco
residents was logistically
unfavorable, forcing the
Corporation to spread
costs for the island's fuel
across its entire billing sys-
tem.
While these costs were
much higher than would
have been incurred
through the use of Bunker
C, Mr Moss said the use of
- automotive diesel would
greatly decrease BEC's
maintenance costs for the
four Wilson City genera-
tors.

Pipeline
He added that the fuel
switch also rendered the
plan to build a pipeline,
which would have carried
Bunker C from a fuel dock
to the plant, obsolete, sav-
ing BEC $11 million.
Mr Moss said the Corpo-
ration, however, has only
shelved thethe the Bunker C
option and not done away
with it altogether.
Storage tanks for that
fuel had already been
ordered, delivered and set
in place when the decision
was made to switch to
automotive diesel.
As a result, two large,
empty storage tanks sit
unused at the Wilson City
plant, and are now nothing
more than a hurricane haz-
ard, said Mr Moss. Should
a hurricane threaten the
island, BEC will be, forced
to fill the tanks with water
to ensure their rigidity.
The Wilson City plant
has been a bone of con-
tention for the Abaco com-
munity since its develop-
m'ent was announced.
Some citizens were forced
to take the Goverriment to
court after they felt there
was not enough consulta-
tion and dialogue with the
community.
Mr Moss said that as the
fastest growing economy in
the Bahamas, Abaco has
seen the highest percent-
; age increase in power
demand of any island.
According to him, Abaco.'s
energy thirst rivals that of
Eleuthera and Exuma
combined.
He said the new power
Plant should be able to sus-
tain Abaco's growth for
nine years, and be online
by the end of the year.
This summer, Abaco suf-
fered massive power out-
ages as a result of the exist-
ing power station exhaust-
ing its supply of lubricating
oil for its engines.
Mr Mo,ss as he


addressed a crown of Aba-
conians, apologised pro-
fusely for what he called
the "less than satisfactory"
customer service rendered
to the community.
He assured them that
with the addition of two
generators rented by the
Corporation, the occur-,
rence of power outages has
been rectified.


$857m resort faces difficulty




'getting back on its feet'


FROM page 1B

However, her decision on
whether to confirm the arbi-
tration award and verdict is
still .awaited some six weeks
after that hearing, meaning
that South Ocean and the two
protagonists Plainfield and
Mr Stein/RHS Ventures -
remain in "limbo".
David Hille, Plainfield's
lead counsel, told the court
on the recusal motion: "It
appears to be kind of an 11th
hour delay tactic which is con-
sistent with [RHS Ventures']
conduct both in the arbitra-
tion and in the confirmation
proceedings to date."
And he added: "What
we've got here is a limited
partnership that is in a state of
some limbo in terms of gov-
ernance.
"The arbitration resolved
who was to be the general
partner in this case. That is a
position that has not been
accepted by the respondents
[RHS Ventures] here.


"It needs some closure and
finality as to the governance
structure for the limited part-
nership. And without that clo-
sure'and finality, it is very dif-
ficult for this enterprise to get
back on its feet and moving
forward."
He urged that the arbitra-
tion award's ratification be
"addressed as expeditiously
as is reasonably possible".
In a previous letter filed
with the New York State
Supreme Court, Mr Hille said
the three-man arbitration-
panel "unanimously found"
that RHS Ventures and Mr
Stein had "been properly
removed 'for cause'" as the
New South Ocean project's
general/developer partner in
October 2008, a date that was
almost two years' ago.
Despite a $2.9 million
award being made against
RHS Ventures and Mr Stein,
Plainfield's attorneys argued
that the project had contin-
ued to languish, with the golf
course its key asset and
other development compo-


nents, such as the 375 acres
of real estate, depreciating in
value.
"Nonetheless, [RHS Ven-
tures and Mr Stein] continue
to refuse to abide by the arbi-
tration award, and to prevent
petitioners from assuming the
rightful role as general part-
ner," Mr Hille alleged.
"As a result of respondents'
ongoing misconduct, the part-
nership (in which [Plain-
field/Seaside] have invested,
and lost, in excess of $85 mil-
lion) continued to remain in
ungovernable limbo. Respon-
dents' latest delay tactic
should not be permitted."
The South Ocean case also
highlights how the fate of
valuable Bahamian resort and
other properties, plus valu-
able parcels of real estate, is
increasingly being decided in
foreign courts, which devel-
opers and their financiers
have selected as the primary
jurisdiction for resolving any
disputes.

Customs Department


FROM page 1B
enforcing a requirement that Grand
Bahama Port Authority (GBPA)
licencees, who sold goods bonded to other
licencees, submit reports on such 'over-
the-counter' sales to it by the 15th of each
subsequent month.
Tribune Business reported last week
that there was no requirement, either in
statute, policy or a written understanding,
for GBPA licencees to submit over-the-
counter bonded goods sales reports, and
Mr Turnquest admitted that the Freeport
private sector was "very concerned" about
its relationship with Customs.
"I know that there has been an official
request for these [over-the-counter]
reports," the Grand Bahama Chamber pres-
ident told Tribune Business. "I wrote to
Customs on behalf of a particular member of
the Chamber last week, asking them to clar-
ify their position. They have come back to
say this is not a new policy, it is an existing
policy they are seeking to enforce."
Mr Turnquest added that he was meet-
ing with Customs today to "talk through
this policy". He said: "We need to talk about
what the policy has been, and what the pol-
icy is that they seek to enforce."
The Grand Bahama Chamber chief said
he was concerned about the uncertainty
arbitrary changes in Customs' policy could
create, harming the business environment
and discouraging commerce and foreign
direct investment in Freeport,
"Obviously, we're very concerned with
the relationship we have with Customs,"
Mr Turnquest said. "We operate here with
certain assumptions and certain under-
standings [undei the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement], and it seems that every now
and then Customs will enforce an arbitrary
rule or different rule,-which does not give
certainty to business.
"Where you have uncertainty, you will
have investors and businesspeople not
knowing how to conduct themselves day-
to-day.
"We have issues with the way Customs
operates and conducts itself. We need clar-
ification of what the rules are, what the
requirements are going to be, what's going
to be enforced,.so that everyone knows
t.pfroht what the rules are. We can't be
going back and forth where Customs or an
element of it says one thing, another part
says another, and we do not know whether
we're coming or going."

Reasonable
Mr Turnquest added: "We understand
Customs' role to.collect revenue, but they
must be reasonable." He added that under
the Hawksbill Creek Agreement "all the
benefits accrue to the licencees, and they
[Customs] must respect that".
Tribune Business has subsequently been
told that Customs has warned several GBPA
licencees, orally and via handwritten notes,
that unless over-the-counter bonded goods
sales reports are submitted, their trailers
will not be cleared. Mr Turnquest, though,
said he had no knowledge of such develop-
ments.
The Grand Bahama Chamber president's
position was backed by noted Freeport-
based attorney Fred Smith QC, the Callen-
ders & Co attorney and partner, who told
Tribune Business that it was "unbelievable"


Chamber chief: MSCs 146 per cent

fee rise 'certainly not acceptable'


FROM page 1B
tainers from the Freeport
Container Port. This
monopoly, speculation had
it, would control both the
movement of containers
from the port to the staging
area, and then the final
delivery to the end-cus-
tomer.
No one has previously
named the supposed
monopoly provider of
MSC's trucking services, but
multiple sources in Freeport
identified it to Tribune Busi-
ness as Freeport Ship Ser-
vices, a company headed by
Jeremy Cafferata, son of
attorney Chris Cafferata.
"From the Freeport Ship
Services point of view,
they've been trying to get
some sort of exclusive," one
source said. "This has been
happening for six months at
least."
Mr Turnquest, mean-
while, said that while he had
no direct information, he
had "heard" from other par-
ties about Freeport Ship
Services' interest in estab-
lishing an exclusive rela-
tionship with MSC.
Manuel Ruiz, MSC
(Bahamas) general manag-
er, has not returned Tribune


Business's calls seeking com-
ment, but information
reaching this newspaper sug-
gests that fears about a
'trucking monopoly' may be
misplaced.
Kevin Bethel, of Bethel's
Trucking Company, said the
notice he received from
MSC only stated that there
would be an increase in the
Freeport destination charge,
and it was going to include
trucking.
George Williams, of
Freeport Transfer Compa-
ny, added: "MSC has been
experiencing a lot of dam-
age to their containers and
they are trying to limit the
amount of people that can
truck their containers.

Independent
"There are a number of
independent drivers...and
they are doing a lot of dam-
age to the containers. The
port is open to everybody
and MSC is trying to regu-
late and limit the amount of
people that can truck their
containers.
Mr Turnquest, mean-
while, urged both MSC and
the Grand Bahama trucking
companies to come to a
negotiated solution for all
concerned.


"We're for free enterprise,
and believe Bahamians have
a right to conduct business,
just as MSC has a right to
protect its equipmentn" the
Grand Bahama Chamber of
Commerce's president said.
"There has got to be a way
to work out a deal in a fair
' and equitable way, whether
the truckers post a bond or
insurance requirement.
Whatever accommodation
has to be made, reasonable
people come up with rea-
sonable solutions."
Another source said they
understood that under the
new policy, the client would
pay the delivery charge for
their container direct to
MSC, which would then
contract the trucking com-
pany.
"MSC is simply trying to
make money off the truck-
ing by charging for the ship-
ping," the source said.
adding that it wanted to
ensure all trucking compa-
nies had posted the required
indemnity insurance and
bonds, and that they had
"the correct chassis used to
haul the containers".
In other words, MSC is
looking for all trucking com-
panies that haul its contain-
ers to meet certain standards
and criteria.


We have issues with the
way Customs operates
and conducts itself. We need
clarification of what the rules
are, what the requirements
are going to be, what's going
to be enforced, so that every-
one knows upfront what the
rules are."

that Customs would attempt to interfere
with business in Freeport given the city's
weak economy.
A veteran of several Supreme Court vic-
tories over Customs in relation to the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement, Mr Smith
added: "This is Groundhog Day for Cus-
toms. Every few years, Customs gets a bee in
its bonnet, and tries to impose 'arbitrary
solutions.
"It is unbelievable to me that in the cur-
rent state of Freeport's economy, Customs
would do anything which would interfere
with commerce."
Mr Smith echoed calls by Christopher
Lowe, the former Grand Bahama Cham-
ber of Commerce, for Customs to engage in
dialogue with the GBPA, Grand Bahama
Chamber of Commerce and the licencees, in
a bid to arrive at a solution that satisfied its
revenue needs while also protecting all rights
under the Hawksbill Creek Agreement.
Calling on the licencees to unite and form
an organisation dedicated to advancing their
interests, Mr Smith added: "It is regrettable
that half a century after the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement has been in operation in
Freeport, that there is still no unified
licencee organisation which could meet with
Customs and develop a sensible and work-
able protocol on the over-the-counter bond-
ed goods sales.
"We have another 44 years in Freeport,
and I certainly encourage the Ministry of
Finance, the Chamber of Commerce, the
Port Authority and the licencees to get
together and come up with a workable pro-
tocol.
"This continued knee-jerk reaction by
,Customs, or draconian demands for reports,
are inappropriate in an economy' such as
Freeport's, where there is a need for co-
operation by all parties in this great Freeport
enterprise.
"If we don't continue to work together, we
will continue to shoot ourselves in the foot,
continue to stagnate, and continue to fight.
It is in everyone's interest to work together
on Customs issues. I encourage the Port
Authority to take the lead role in this mat-
ter, and avoid unnecessary conflict.and busi-
ness delays in Freeport."
Adding that there was "no crisis", Mr
Smith told Tribune Business said that
instead of sending. out alarmist, threaten-
ing notices, "which only serve to heighten
anxiety and create stress and uncertainty",
Customs needed to take a conciliatory
approach.
"Why must everything be resolved by cri-
sis management and/or litigation/" he asked.
,"I have been a licencee and been dealing
with Customs issues in Freeport for decades.
I really do encourage all of us who are part-
ners in this Freeport venture, this magic
city, to try and work this out."

France braces for day of strikes today
PARIS


Protesters are counting on people power to pressure the gov-
ernment to back down on its plan to up the retirement age from 60
to 62, with a second round of September strikes expected to hob-
ble public transport, air traffic and schools across France, accord-
ing to Associated Press.
Workers at the state-run train system, the SNCF, started their
strike Wednesday evening, at 1700 GMT, getting an overnight
headstart on other sectors that plan to walk off the job Thursday.
Union organizers hope to put rhore people in the streets -
and off the job than on Sept. 7, when at least 1.1 million people
turned out to oppose President Nicolas Sarkozy's plan to increase
the retirement age in order to save the deficit-ridden pension sys-
tem. As many as 231 protest marches are planned nationwide.
The strikes are seen as a test for the conservative Sarkozy. He has
indicated he is willing to make marginal concessions but remains
firm on the central point: increasing the retirement age from 60 to
62 and pushing back the age from 65 to 67 for those who want to
ensure full retirement benefits.
As baby boomers reach retirement age and life expectancy
increases, the government insists it is necessary to raise the retire-
ment age so the pension system can break even by 2018.
The SNCF announced that one in two fast trains during the
strike will be canceled, with regional services also only at 50 per-
cent. The Eurostar to London was not expected to be affected and
the Thalys train from Belgium was expected to be only slightly
hit, with nine in 10 trains running. Paris commuters can expect
uneven service in the Metro and long waits on suburban lines.

College costs often




not as high as listed


CANDICE CHOI,
AP Personal Finance Writer
NEW YORK


.... .- ---

always as scary as they
first appear. Grants,
scholarships, loans and
other factors can help families put a
big dent in costs. The result is that
about half of college students end up
paying less than their school's asking
price.
"So many families just assume
they're never going to be able to
afford a certain type of college," said
Anne Sturtevant, 'director of enroll-
ment services at The College Board, a
nonprofit association of schools that
tracks college costs.
But the prospect of saving for
school seems a lot more manageable
when taking into account various
funding resources, Sturtevant said...
Families may even realize they can
afford schools that previously seemed
out of reach.
Here's a.breakdown of the factors
that can affect what families ultimately
pay.
THE ASKING PRICE

To start, keep in mind that tuition
varies greatly and not all schools have
stratospheric costs.
Private 'colleges are generally the.
most expensive with an average annu-
al price of $35,600 for tuition, room
and board. Public universities cost
$26,700 on average for out-of-state
students and $15,200 for in-state stu-
dents.
An increasingly, popular option in
this stalled economy is attending a
two-year college, where the average
annual tuition and fees fall to $2,500.
But that's all before financial aid
packages are taken into account. Last
year, full-time undergraduates got an
average of.$10,000 in aid.
That came in a mix of grants,. schol-
arships, federal loans and work study.'
A new law will soon also let families
get a better sense of what their costs
would be after aid.
Starting in October of 2011, schools
will be required to post calculators on
their websites that provide an esti-
mate of the actual price of attendance
based on a student's economic situa-'
tion.
Until then, try filling ouiittetft VAF-
SA, or Free Application for Federal
Student Aid,.to gauge how much
assistance your family might be eligi-
ble for. The FAFSA4caster on the,
Department. of Education website
takes about 30 minutes to complete,
assuming you have tax return and oth-
er financial information handy.
You can find it at www.fafsa4cast-
.er.ed.gov.


Keep in mind that the actual aid
packages offered will vary depending
on a school's resources and how bad-
ly it wants to attract your son or
daughter.

GRANTS & SCHOLARSHIPS
The ability to cover tuition without
adding to your debt makes grants and
scholarships the most desirable com-
ponents of financial aid packages.
This no-strings-attached money on
average accounted for about half the
aid given to students last year, or,
about $5,000 per student.
The amount awarded by the feder-
al government depends on a formula
that measures a family's economic sit-
uation. But with. Pell grants, families
can get up to $5,550 a year.
The maximum grant amount will
rise to $5,975 between 2013 and 2017.
.And the federal grants students are
entitled to don't change regardless of
the school they attend.
Schools also offer their own grants
or scholarships to lure high-achieving
students. Students can further offset
costs by applying for additional schol-
arships on their own.
FEDERAL LOANS'

Ideally your child won't have to
take out any loans. But if necessary,
remember that federal loans come
with lower interest rates than private
loans.
They also come with greater bene-
fits and safeguards. For example, bor-
rowers who earn modest salaries after-
graduation can apply to have pay-
ments-capped at 15 percent of their
-discretionary income.
Eligibility for the program is deter-
mined by a formula that weighs a per-

ments under fairly clear-cut guide-
lines. With private loans, it's up to the
lender to decide whether to grant
relief. For the neediest students, the
government also picks up the interest
costs while students are in school.
WORK STUDY

Parents may worry that having a
job can hinder a student's academic
pursuits. But the federal work-study
program that provides jobs to stu-
dents as part of their financial aid
package usually doesn't exceed 15
hours a week.
Schools also try to place students
in jobs related to fields they're inter-
ested in. So a biology.major might get
job in a science lab and a business
major might be placed in an office
setting. The routine of an on-campus
job can also boost a student's acade-
mic performance, notes Sturtevant of
The College Board.
"If you have a job, you have to
organize the rest of your life so you
tend to have better study habits," she
said. "And you're automatically
engaged in the campus community."
Alternately, students may be able to
find more lucrative part-time work
on their own in a field that interests
them.
TAX BENEFITS
Another way to offset college costs
is with tax credits and deductions.
Many middle-class families qualify for
them too.
This year, the American Opportu-
nity Credit lets families claim a tax
credit of $2,500 per student. That's
$700 more than the Hope tax credit it
replaced. The full credit is available to
those who earn up to $80,000, or up to
$160,000 for married couples filing a
joint return. A tax credit directly low-
ers the amount owed in taxes, unlike
a deduction which lowers taxable
income. Those with incomes of less
than $70,000 can also claim deduc-
tions of up to $2,500 on student loan
interest payments. For a full list of

Oil prices slip as supplies continue to grow

INTERNATIONAL
BUSINESS
NEW YORK
Oil prices slid Wednesday
after the government said
stockpiles of oil and gaso-
line grew last week, even
though a major pipeline
serving Midwest refineries
was shut because of a leak,
according to Associated
Press.
Benchmark crude for
November delivery lost 70
cents at $74.27 a barrel in
midday trading on the New
York Mercantile Exchange.
The gains in crude and
gasoline supplies surprised
many traders and analysts
who expected a drop
because of the closed
Enbridge.Energy Partners
pipeline that carried Cana-
dian crude to refineries in
Wisconsin and Indiana. The
pipeline restarted Friday,
eight days after it was closed
because of a leak.
The Energy Departmen-
t's Energy Information
Administration said com-
mercial crude inventories
increased by 1 million bar-
rels to 358.3 million barrels
for the week ending Sept.
17.

refineries.


of 1.5 million barrels,
according to Platts, the ener-
gy information arm of
McGraw-Hill. Platts senior
oil analyst Linda Rafield
said the increase came from
more crude, imports.

Crude
She also pointed out that
crude inventories are build-
ing as refineries slow down
for seasonal maintenance
and use less petroleum.
Gasoline supplies rose by
1.6 million barrels to 226.1
million barrels. Gasoline
demand over the four weeks
ended Sept. 17 averaged 9.1


million barrels a day, down
0.1 percent from the same
period of 2009.
. Demand fell from the pre-
vious week by 172,000 bar-
rels a day to 8.8 million bar-
rels a day.
That's a six-month low
that Rafield says is "a sign
that the consumer is curtail-
ing discretionary spending."
EIA said supplies of dis-
tillate fuel, which include
diesel and heating oil, rose
by 300,000 barrels to 174.9
million barrels, which was
2.4 percent more than a year
ago.
"It looks like October and
November are going to be


warmer than normal which
is going to delay the start of
the season where people use
heating oil to heat their
homes," Tradition Energy
analyst Addison Armstrong
said.
In other Nymex trading in
October contracts, heating
oil fell 2.45 cents to $2.0945
a gallon and gasoline lost
2.95 cents at $1.8901 a gal-
lon.
Natural gas rose 1.5 cents
to $3.934 per 1,000 cubic
feet.
In London, Brent crude
fell 67 cents to $77.75 a bar-
rel on the ICE Futures
exchange.


SEC official pressed on delays in Ponzi case


MARCY GORDON,
AP Business Writer
WASHINGTON
Senators pressed the Securities and Exchange
Commission's chief enforcement official Wednes-
day to explain why the agency has yet to demote
or fire staffers who waited 12 years to bring
charges against a major Ponzi scheme, according
to Associated Press.
The SEC inspector general found that the
agency knew. since 1997 that R. Allen Stanford
was likely operating a Ponzi scheme. But it did-
n't charge the billionaire until February 2009.
The charges came a few months after the massive
pyramid scheme of financier Bernard Madoff
surfaced.
SEC enforcement officials discouraged cases
that couldn't be resolved quickly, the inspector
general found.
Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christo-
pher Dodd asked SEC Enforcement Director,
Robert Khuzami why no one at the SEC has
been fired or demoted for the excessive delay.
Other senators on the panel also wanted an
answer during the hearing on the issue.
"We seem to have an instance in which one
side of the agency was screaming that there was
a fire, and the other side said that the fire was too
hard to put out," Sen. Dodd said.
Khuzami told the panel that the disciplinary
process is under way.
That prompted Sen. Jim Bunning to say: "It's
been 13 years. Isn't that enough of a chance?"
Khuzami responded that the details of the
SEC's failure in the case only have been known
.since the inspector general's report was issued in
April.
Khuzami also said the agency has toughened its
efforts to shut down financial misconduct since
the past failures.


He said the SEC is working to provide "max-
imum recovery" to investors hurt in-Stanford's ,
alleged $7 billion fraud.
Inspector General David Kotz also found that
the former head of enforcement in the SEC's
Fort Worth, Texas office, who helped quash
investigations of Stanford, later represented the
billionaire as a private lawyer. Kotz indicated at
the hearing that he has referred the matter to the
Justice Department for possible criminal prose-
cution in connection with statements he made
to SEC ethics officers.
Kotz also said the official's representing Stan-
ford appeared to violate Texas's rules for lawyers.
The official briefly represented Stanford in
2006 before being told by the SEC ethics office
that it was improper for him to do so, Kotz testi-
fied.

Reforms
Kotz said the reforms in the SEC's enforce.-
ment and inspections operations that Khuzami
outlined may not have yet taken hold at the low-
er levels of the agency.
"I think that the intention is there," he said. "I
think it takes time for a culture to be changed."
Stanford has been in federal prison since his
indictment in June 2009 on criminal charges that
his international banking business was really a
pyramid scheme. He is.disputing the charges.
He faces a life sentence if convicted.
Kotz's office has also found that the agency
bungled five investigations into Madoff's business
between June 1992 and December 2008. Madof-
f's fraud, which could be the biggest Ponzi scheme
in history, destroyed thousands of people's life
savings, wrecked charities and jolted investor
confidence during the worst days of the financial
crisis.

Stocks waver as traders


move int

STEPHEN BERNARD,
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK

Traders put their September
stock rally on hold and moved
into Treasurys and gold
Wednesday, a day after the
Federal Reserve said it was
ready to take more action to
boost the economy, according
to Associated Press.
The Dow Jones industrial
average fell 21 points in after-
noon trading.
With no new economic data
out Wednesday and the Fed's
announcement late Tuesday
having a bigger impact on the
bond and currency markets,
Bob Auer, portfolio manager
of the Auer Growth Fund, said
it was natural for stocks to
pause.
Major indexes have been on
a tear this month as economic
reports have consistently indi-
cated the economy continues
to grow, albeit slowly.
"People are saying, 'I've got
some profits, let's book 'em,'"'
Auer said. Entering Wednes-
day, the Dow had risen 13 of
the past 15 days and climbed
7.5 percent so far in Septem-
ber.
The Fed didn't announce
specific actions to strengthen
the economy, but investors

AMR shares fall after disappointing outlook


DAVID KOENIG,
AP Airlines Writer
DALLAS

Shares of American Airlines
parent AMR Corp. tumbled
more than 9 percent Wednes-
day afternoon after the compa-
ny's outlook for stronger rev-
enue failed to impress some
analysts.
The company said late Tues-
day that third-quarter unit rev-
enue, or total revenue divided
by available seats times miles
flown, would grow between 9.8
percent and 10.8 percent com-
pared with a year ago.


At a time when many airlines
have been boosting revenue
with higher fares and fees on
checked baggage, analysts'
comments suggested that
AMR's outlook wasn't rosy
enough. Three of them widened
their estimates of AMR's full-
year losses.
JP Morgan analyst Jamie
Baker said the outlook "paints
a softer-than-expected 3Q out-
come," and Dahlman Rose &
Co. analyst Helane Becker said
she would continue to avoid
AMR shares.
AMR was the only major
U.S. airline to lose money in


the second quarter, Analysts
expected it to earn 53 cents per
share in the third quarter,
according to a Thomson
Reuters survey.
Becker widened her full-year
estimated AMR loss to $1.65
per share from $1.53 per share.
Similarly, Baker predicted a
loss of $1.22 per share, wider
than his previous forecast of a
loss of 82 cents per share; and
Stifel-Nicolaus analyst Hunter
Keay called for a loss of $1.22
per share compared with his
old estimate of a $1.08-per-
share loss.

Guidance

Keay said AMR's revenue
guidance indicated that domes-
tic leisure fares are probably
softening.
AMR, fell 65 cents, or 9.5
percent, to $6.23 in afternoon
trading.
In its report Tuesday, AMR
also said its balance of unre-
stricted cash and short-term
investments would fall to
around $4.3 billion by Sept. 30,
down from about $5 billion at
the end of June.
Becker said labor issues were
a bigger problem than liquidity.
"We continue to avoid these
shares due to the lack of prof-
itability and the company's
labor contracts," she wrote in a
note to clients.
American says it has higher
labor costs than other airlines,
and it's negotiating new con-
tracts with its three unions.
Two of the unions have
asked federal officials for per-
mission to move toward a
strike.

GLBLE AI(EEOPET


EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT
members watch Jose
Manuel Barroso, Presi-
dent of the European
Commission, delivering
his statement on the state
of the Union at the Euro-
pean Parliament in Stras-
bourg, eastern France,
Tuesday Sept. 7, 2010. In
his first State of the Union
address to parliament,
Barroso said that eco-
nomic reform in the wake
of the crisis must be
accelerated-and added he
would propose taxes on
financial activities in the
next month or two.


A look at economic developments and activity in major stock markets around the world onWednes-
day:


BRUSSELS The European Union Parliament approved creation of new financial over-
sight institutions aimed at preventing another financial crisis like the one that led to massive
bank bailouts at taxpayer expense.
The parliament overwhelmingly backed the plan to set up watchdog boards for the financial mar-
kets, banking and insurance sectors in addition to a European board to make sure the EU can avoid
new crises. The institutions should become active at the beginning of next year.
Parliamentary approval in Strasbourg, France, was the last hurdle for the plans, which were hailed
as a major step forward in EU-wide financial management. The EU member states had already
approved them earlier this month.


LONDON Pursuit of "the fast buck" is undermining Britain's economy, a government' min-
ister said as he announced a review of corporate governance, executive pay and takeovers.
Vince Cable, who heads the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, spoke at the
annual conference of the Liberal Democrats, the junior partner in Prime Minister David Cameron's
Conservative-led coalition government,


LONDON The euro hit a five-month high above $1.34, while European shares fell after the
Federal Reserve hinted that it was ready to provide more assistance to the weak U.S. economy, the
world's largest.
The FTSE .100 index of leading British shares closed down 0,4 percent, Germany's DAX fell 1,1
percent and the CAC-40 in France was 1,3 percent lower,


TOKYO Earlier in Asia, Japan's Nikkei 225 stock average closed down 0.4 percent as the yen
strengthened. Hong Kong's Hang Seng added 0.2 percent. Markets were closed for holidays in South
Korea, mainland China and Taiwan.


LISBON, Portugal Portugal raised euro750 million ($1 billion) in a debt auction that drew
strong investor interest, but its borrowing cost was the highest since it joined the euro, underlin-
ing market worries about the country's financial health. The Portuguese sale follows solid bond auc-
tions Tuesday in other indebted countries: Ireland, Spain and Greece. The ability of those gov-
ernments to raise money relieved some short-term market pressure.
However, the high interest rates from the Portuguese auction deepened worries about how the
country will service its debt in the long term amid anemic growth.


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates A senior Dubai finance official predicts the UAE economy
will top $272 billion this year, suggesting a strong recovery forthe Arab world's second-biggest econ-
omy.
He said the rise came from increased liquidity and growth in important sectors such as trade, trans-
port and finance.


BERLIN Shares of Deutsche Bank AG dropped sharply after the bank said it expected to post
a third-quarter net loss because it plans to absorb a big charge related to an acquisition.
Deutsche Bank expects a euro2.3 billion ($3.1 billion) charge stemming from its planned
takeover of retail lender Deutsche Postbank AG to result in the loss for the quarter.
It said that, even before the charge, it expected a profit "significantly below" the level of last year's
third quarter "consistent with its earlier expectations and the poorer market conditions during
the summer months."


ATHENS, Greece Protesting truck drivers blocked traffic on Greece's two busiest highways
and clashed with police in front of parliament as lawmakers approved a shake-up of labor market
rules as part of an agreement for international rescue loans.
The drivers, protesting for a 10th day, sealed off the highways outside Athens minutes after par-
liament voted in favor of legislation to scrap restricted licensing rules for trucks.
Greece has promised to reform its labor market as part of austerity measures agreed in return
for euro110 billion ($144 billion) in rescue loans from European countries and the International
Monetary Fund.


BUCHAREST, Romania Romania needs to borrow almost euro6 billion ($7.9 billion) next
year to cover its budget deficit and plans to sign a new deal with the International Monetary Fund
in 2011 to shore up the ailing economy, the. president said. Meanwhile, at least 10,000 people protest-
ed in Bucharest against wage cuts and other austerity measures, authorities said. Angry protesters
were demanding the government increases salaries to the 2009 level and stop layoffs of public work-
ers. Authorities slashed public sector wages and hiked sales tax to reduce the budget deficit, as the
IMF had requested. President Traian Basescu said the country still needed help with its finances,
and said that spending cuts would continue.

Potash files complaint





against BHP Billiton


ROB GILLIES,
Associated Press Writer
TORONTO


.Potash Corp. of
Saskatchewan asked a U.S.
court on Wednesday to block a
$39 billion hostile takeover by
BHP Billiton on the grounds
BHP has made "false state-
ments and half-truths" to try to
manipulate the perceived value
of the Canadian company.
Australia's BHP Billiton Ltd.
launched hostile $130-per-
share takeover bid last month
after Potash directors rejected
its offer as wholly inadequate.
The complaint is the latest
defensive move by one of
Canada's largest mining com-
panies and the world's largest
fertilizer company.
Potash's filing with the U.S.
district court for northern Illi-
nois alleges that "because of
BHP's false statements, half-
truths, and contradictions"
Potash shareholders "lack clear
and accurate information about
BHP's intentions and the true
value" of its shares.
BHP said in a statement that
it believes the lawsuit is "entire-
ly without merit" and that it
will contest it.
BHP said Potash Corp.'s
shareholders "'should have the
opportunity to decide on the
merits of our offer."
The lawsuit, filed by Potash
alleges that BHP has violated
U.S. securities law by failing to-
adequately inform sharehold-
ers.
Potash alleges BHP hasn't
been truthful about its plans to
develop its own potash mine in
Saskatchewan. Before bidding
for Potash Corp. last month,


BUSINESS..

BHP said it was focused on
building a massive potash mine.
in Saskatchewan.
Potash Corp. said BHP only
said that so that it could scare
investors into thinking BHP
could flood the market with
potash. Potash Corp. said the
real goal was to drive down the
stock of a company it wanted to
buy.

Primed

"By conditioning the market.
for years to believe that BHP
was primed to bring the full
force of its worldwide financial
and mining power to compete
in the potash industry, BHP .
knew and intended to under-
mine investor confidence in the
potash sector generally and
PCS in particular creating an
opportunity for BHP to acquire
PCS shares for less than their
intrinsic value," the lawsuit
states.
Potash noted that BHP made
'a bid just low enough that it


would not trigger a vote by
BHP shareholders to approve
of the transaction. BHP is
required to seek shareholder
support for any deal worth 25
percent or more of its market
capitalization. According to
Potash, BHP's bid was.worth
approximately 23 percent of
BHP's market capitalization.
Potash Corp. is
Saskatchewan's largest rev-
enue-generating companies and
the province is worried that
BHP would operate at full
capacity and lower potash
prices, leading to less revenue
for the province.
BHP CEO Marius Kloppers
is in Canada this week to meet
with government officials,
investors and media in an effort
to win support for the bid. Chi-
nese state-owned companies
are also interested in making a
rival bid.
Canada's federal government
can block a foreign takeover if
it's not a "net benefit" to Cana-
da. Canadian Prime Minister
Harper has asked for
Saskatchewan Premier Brad
Wall's input.
Wall has said he hasn't heard
anything to convince him that a
BHP takeover Potash is a net
benefit to his province or Cana-
da.
Shares of Potash were trad-
ing down 32 cents to $147.20 in
midday trading on the New
York Stock Exchange. Potash
shares soared to over $230 just
before the global recession hit
in 2008.
BHP hopes to diversify its
assets and profit from rising fer-
tilizer demand in China.
BHP has extended the expi-
ration of the bid by one month
to Nov. 18.

Who he was
With boldness and \w\ith pride w\e speak
Of a humble and godly man
Who taught the importance of living for Christ
Speaking wisdom for all to understand
To some of us he \ as "grandpa"
Speaking in his soft but firm. loving tone
To others lie \\ as simply "-daddy"
Who pro\ ided for his house and home.
To a wife and mother lie was just "Bill
A husband \\ilh a giving spirit
Honoring the commitments that he made
Not just speaking of love. but li\ ing it.
We treasure the memories of Saturday nights
As the family gathered at the homestead
With the laughter of children and
grandchildren
That lie embraced until time for bed.
Praise to the Lord for this mighty man of God
Dadd\. grandpa. great-grandpa. Bill
We know you're in a better place
So. we'll carry on .....until!

Sadly missed by his children, grand children

February O1 1924 Septe.rber 23, 2-8

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God has laid you see
I took His hand when I heard Him call
I turned my back and left it all
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joys,
A friendship shared. a laugh. a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee,
God wanted me now; He set me free!
Gone But Not Forgotten.

MP CALLS FOR
REFERENDUM
ON BTC SALE
OPPOSITION MP Dr
Bernard Nottage called on the
government to hold a nation-
al referendum before it con-
tinues with its sale of 51 per
cent of the Bahamas
Telecommunications Compa-
ny to Cable and Wireless.
Claiming that there remains
widespread opposition to the
sale from a "broad cross sec-
tion" of Bahamians, Dr Not-
tage said that a referendum
will be the only way to deter-
mine whether or not the gov-
ernment is acting in line with

in fact seek to govern.

Ministry of Finance

makes plans .over

government debt


By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net
THE Ministry of Finance
plans to allocate $18 million
for the Bahamas Telecommu-
nication Corporation to take a
sizable chunk off the govern-
ment's electricity debt.
There is "far too much
wastage" in the public sector
where energy consumption .is
concerned, and the govern-
ment is "determined to make
significant improvements,".
said Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham in the House of


Assembly yesterday.
Last year, Michael Moss,
BEC executive chairman said
the government's account was
$40 million in arrears.
Mr Ingraham said the gov-
ernment was trying "to do a
better job at keeping current
with its electricity bill," and a
better job at consuming and
conserving electricity.
The government also plans
to make provisions in the bud-
get for ministries and depart-
ments of government to keep
current with their electricity

ACCUSED FAILS TO APPEAR AT MURDER TRIAL
AN arrest warrant was issued yesterday for a man charged with
murdering an elderly woman in Eleuthera in 2007.
Senior Justice Jon Isaacs issued the warrant for Livingston Tay-

Agnes Cates.
A trial into her death was scheduled to begin yesterday. Mrs
Cates was reportedly found bludgeoned to death in the bedroom
of her Rock Sound, Eleuthera home on Sunday, October 7,2007.

THE government plans to prioritise
much needed upgrades to the capital infra-
structure at ZNS in the upcoming budget,
said Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham, in
the House of Assembly yesterday.
Mr Ingraham did not reveal the figure
the government intends to allocate, but he
said money will be set aside to advance
the digitisation process.
He said the capital injection will be addi-
tional to the $4.3 million that will go
towards financing the recent separation
package and operational expenses.
Late last year, the Broadcasting Corpo-
ration of the Bahamas laid off 80 workers
in a downsizing exercise. In October, Prime
Minister Ingraham said the government
would have to invest between $1.5 to $2
million to upgrade the facilities at the BCB

THE SEARCH for a company to
provide closed circuit television in
New Providence has commenced.
The Royal Bahamas Police Force
issued a request for qualifications
(RFQ) tender for phase one of their
CCTV solution for the capital yes-
terday.
The public notice invited interest-
ed persons to download the docu-
ment from the Bahamas government
website or.'www.royalbahamaspo-
lice.org. Copies of the RFQ are also
available at the Police Training Col-
lege.


part of a new initiative to assist
police in the fight against crime.
Plans formulated by the National
CCTV Steering Committee with
guidance from American consul-
tants Hudson Sterling LLC are
expected to be implemented later
this year as 85 cameras'across New
Providence are linked by a national
control centre.
Stakeholders representing private
enterprises, government depart-
ments and sections of the police
force gathered to discuss plans in
December.
At that time, committee mem-


in the East Street South police dis-
trict, and Cable Bahamas offices
have already greatly assisted police
efforts.
By extending CCTV into high
crime areas in inner-city Nassau,
and throughout the busy business
areas and tourist hubs, the public-
private partnership hopes to crack-
down on crime in Nassau and across
the Bahamas.
The completed proposal along
with three copies must be placed
in sealed envelopes marked
"Request for Qualifications for the
Closed Circuit Television Solution"


Bay Street.
Documents should be submitted
no later than 9.30am on Tuesday,
March 22. A tender opening will be
held at 10am at the Ministry of
Finance.
The Bahamas' first police-moni-
tored Closed Circuit Television Sys-
tem was launched in December
2009 at the Southeastern Police
Division of New Providence.
The system's value was said to be
its ability to deter criminal activity,
and assist in evidence collection,
convictions and police response to
criminal activity.

be installed in New Providence.


Brazil offers technical assistance to the Bahamas


ACTING MINISTER OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS Tommy Turnquest, right,
presents a gift to Tomas Mauricio Guggenheim, left, Ambassador of
Federative Republic of Brazil at a farewell reception in the Lower
Gardens of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, East Hill Street
Kris Ingraham/BIS


TECHNICAL assistance in
agriculture and education
were some of the achieve-
ments acknowledged by Act-
ing Minister of Foreign Affairs
and Minister of National Secu-
rity Tommy Turnquest at a
farewell reception for the
ambassador of Brazil.
The reception for Tomas
Mauricio Guggenheim,
Ambassador of Federative
Republic of Brazil, was held in
Lower Gardens of the Min-
istry'of Foreign Affairs, East
Hill Street last week.
"The tangible results of the
strengthened relations
between our countries during
your tour of duty are worthy
of note,"'Mr Turnquest said.
"We are solidly advancing
the roadmap of technical assis-
tance agreements discussed,
having already agreed provi-
sionally to those for agricul-
ture and education, with those
for health and tourism under
active review," Mr Turnquest
said.
Other success are the con-
clusion of a Visa Abolition
Agreement for holders of
diplomatic and official pass-*


ports, increase in Brazilian vis-
itors especially by cruise ship,
and an examination of the
potential for mutual benefits
.in the financial services sec-
tor.
Ambassador Guggenheim
took up his post in 2006 as
Brazil's first Resident Ambas-
sador in the Bahamas; diplo-
matic relations were first
established in 1976.
"Your tour of duty in the
Bahamas has marked the
beginning of a new and flour-
ishing era in the relations
between our two states, as
well as between your country
and the entire Caribbean
region," Mr Turnquest said.
Brazil is widely recognized
in international affairs. It is
the largest country in Latin
America and is said to be a
leading emerging economy
and the probable first choice
from this hemisphere for a
Permanent Seat on the United
Nations. Security Council.
Mr Turnquest also recog-
nised Brazil for playing a vital
role in the Caribbean region
and for hosting the First Sum-
mit of Heads of States and -


Governments of the
Caribbean Community in
Brasilia in April 2010.
"The Bahamas has
observed, and is particularly
pleased with the constructive
role which your country plays
in the G20 group of countries
in highlighting the concerns
of developing countries. This
advocacy has been extremely
beneficial in broadening con-
sensus and consultations with-
in that group," he said.
The Bahamas also recog-
nised the "valuable role'"
which Brazil has played in the
United Nations Stabilisation
Mission in Haiti, since its
estallishmeflt in 2004.


By KHYLE QUINCY
PARKER
Press Attach6
Embassy of The Bahamas
WASHINGTON, DC -
Stringent new import regula-
tions in the United States could
significantly affect the
Bahamas' multi-million dollar
marine export sector, US
Ambassador CA Smith said.
The ambassador attended a
US Food and Drug Adminis-
tration (FDA) Office of Inter-
national Programmes special
briefing on the Food Safety
Modernisation Act (FSMA),
signed into law by President
Barack Obaina in .2010.
The purpose of the briefing
was to share information about
the provisions and implemen-
tation of the new law, which
has according to. one official -
200 pages of provisions and 50
distinct "deliverables." The law
is expected to be a challenge to
implement, and portions of it
have potentially major implica-
tions for the importation of
food into the United States.
After the briefing, Ambas-
sador Smith noted that the new
regulations were certain to have
an impact on the Bahamas
marine export sector.
In 2008, the Bahamas export-
ed about 2,400 tonnes of fish
(just over half the number of
fish produced that year) at a
value of over $80 million. There
were 11 fishprocessors and 18
fish exporters at the end of
2008. The new regulations will
no doubt have a pronounced
affect on this important indus-
try.
,FDA official Michael Taylor
noted that the FSMA is the first


"This mission has con-
tributed significantly to restor-
ing and maintaining security
in Haiti which is of tremen-
dous interest in the Bahamas,"
Mr Turnquest said.
He also credited the ambas-
sador for his co-operation with
the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs by being a judge for
the Model United Nations
competition held last year; a
joint venture between the
ministry and Rotary Interna-
tional.
Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham is expected to visit
Brazil this year to promote
investment opportunities in
the Bahamas.


significant update of food safe-
ty legislation in 70 years. He
suimmarised the aim of the new
law as an attempt to minimise
risks in the US food supply, and
framed the provisions of the
law as an attempt to enforce
standards for the prevention of
food-borne illnesses.
Deputy Commissioner for
Foods Steven Solomon focused
on how the law goes about risk
reduction.
He pointed out that the new
law requires the FDA to
inspect 600 foreign facilities in
2011, and double that number
next year.
The FSMA also gives the
FDA new authority: food from
a facility that declined FDA
inspection can now be refused
admission into the US.
Other new powers include
the authority to mandate recall
of'contaminated foods if no vol-
untary recall is issued (com-
plainants have two days within
which to request a hearing on a
recall) and increased registra-
tion requirements, particularly
re-registration, which will only
be completed upon compliance-
with FDA inspection require-
ments.
Dr Daniel McChesney, direc-
tor of the Office of Surveillance
and Compliance in the Centre
for Veterinary Medicine, talked
about the new focus on pre-
ventive controls, which include
a ramped up set of standards
'for documentation of hazards
and hazard mitigation. He said
the FDA will institute a foreign
supplier verification pro-
gramme to ensure parity of pro-
tection: inspection and certifi-
cation will be part of this pro-
gramme.

FREEPORT A worker

Shipyard who was initially
diagnosed with tuberculo-
sis and treated in 2008, has
become re-infected with
the disease after reportedly
failing to complete the pre-
scribed course of medica-

Public Health' officials
say they are managing the
case and Minister of
Health Dr Hubert Minnis
confirmed that the employ-
ee was previously treated
for TB.
In 2008, health officials
conducted TB screenings
of shipyard employees
after three expatriate
workers were diagnosed
with the bacterial disease.
Following the incident,
the Ministry of Health.put
certain protocols and
requirements in place
regarding the screening
process of employees com-
ing to work at the GB
Shipyard that would
ensure they are tested by
local health professionals
before starting work.
"I want to set the record
straight that there are no
new cases of TB at the
shipyard. This one individ-
ual who works at the ship-
yard, who is known to us,
has subsequently showed
evidence of TB," Dr Min-
nis told a local newspaper.
He noted that the indi-
vidual was placed on pro-
phylactic medication in the
past and-apparently did not
complete bis course of
medication, which may
have caused the infection
to return.
The minister said the
infected worker has under-
gone all the necessary
screenings and health offi-
cials have met with ship-
yard personnel and union
officials on the matter.
Mervin Wright, presi-
dent of Grand Bahama
Port Authority Workers
Union, told The Tribune
yesterday that the union is,
satisfied the matter is being
properly addressed.
"We met with the Minis-
ter of Health and his team
of health professionals and
we are quite satisfied that
they are following proto-
col.
"I am satisfied that they
are attacking this problem
from every angle just as
they did in the last instance
when this thing surfaced
down there in 2008.
"We were told it was an
isolated incident, and I
believe this is an isolated
case and I have no reason
to doubt their professional
opinion as it seems they
are doing everything possi-
ble to take care of this mat-
ter."
Mr Wright said shipyard
workers were not over-
whelmingly concerned
about the incident.

HOSPITAL EXPANSION: Minister of Health Dr. Hubert Minnis speaking in the House
of Assembly yesterday.


Dr Minnis
Sf o said that
the operat-
ing theatre
renovation
and expan-
c rsion project
is going
well and is
scheduled
to be com-
pleted in
August 2011.
This project, budgeted at
$3.2 million, includes the
staged development and
construction of two operat-
ing theatres, one endoscopy
procedure room, one induc-
tion room, day surgery facil-
ities, the Central Sterile Sup-
plies Department and a staff


lounge and changing rooms.
"I am pleased to report
that the projects for the relo-
cation of the Rand's spe-
cialty clinics to the leased
facility on Coral Road and
for the subsequent tempo-
rary relocation of the Acci-
dent and Emergency
Department were both
effectively accomplished in
this fiscal period. This
allowed for commencement
of the renovation and
expansion of the main Acci-
dent and Emergency area,"
he said.
Construction for this pro-
ject, Dr Minnis said, is ahead
of schedule and is targeted
for a June 2011 completion
at a cost of $1.7 million.


Minister updates House on progress

of National Drug Prescription Plan


UPDATING the House
of Assembly on the progress
of the National Drug Pre-
scription Plan, Minister of
Health Dr Hubert Minnis
said that to date, there have
been 31,187 paid transac-
tions at private pharmacies,
collectively worth more than
$585,129.
Once the National Insur-
ance Board is presented
with these bills, the phar-
macy in question is paid
within seven days, he said.
"Long lines at the Princess
Margaret Hospital and pub-
lic clinic pharmacies are no
more as qualified retirees,
the indigent and children
can have prescriptions for
medication for the select 11
chronic diseases filled at any
of the public clinic pharma-
cies or the 30 private phar-
macies in 38 locations.
"By swiping the ACE
card, pharmacists can verify
that the presenter is quali-
fied to receive the medicine
prescribed free of charge for
the specific chronic disease
or diseases from which he
suffers," he said.
Dr Minnis noted that the
prevention of disease is as
important as the treatment
of disease. A feature of the
Chronic Non-communicable
Disease Prescription Plan is


the Healthy People's pro-
gramme, he said.
"A committee of health
professionals and NIB man-
agers administer this pro-
gramme under which quali-
fied projects for wellness
activities can access funding
once the programme has
been vetted and approved.
To jump-start this pro-
gramme, NIB introduced a
Get Well Bahamas Chal-
lenge, which identified some
40 overweight persons with
chronic diseases and pro-
vided them with a three
month wellness programme
that included supervised
physical activities, lessons
on nutrition and proper eat-
ing habits, vegetable culti-
vation, and the like.
"The goal is to jump-start
changes in lifestyle in these
individuals. Incentives have
been identified to encour-
age their adherence to the
approved regime. I propose
to extend this programme
by having 40 persons select-
ed for each of the remain-
ing quarters of this year. I
have received the commit-
ment .of some of my col-
leagues in this House to join
me in participating in the
activities of the programme
over the next three quar-
ters," he said.


Convicted murderer

expected back in

court today for

sentencing hearing

A MAN convicted of
murdering his former girl-
friend, whose body was
found inside a grave in the
Bahamas Veteran's Ceme-
tery, is expected back in
court today for his sentenc-
ing hearing.
Angelo Poitier, 24, was
convicted last October of
the murder of Shanice
Adderley, 19.
The young woman's
body was discovered inside
a grave in the Bahamas
Veteran's Cemetery on
Infant View Road on May
27.

Autopsy
According to an autopsy
report, Ms Adderley died
as a result of blunt force
trauma to the body.
Poitier denied killing
Adderley in an unsworn
statement from the prison-
er's dock.
He claimed that he had
unwillingly signed a con-
fession statement over
fears that police would
brutalise him.
Attorney Terrell Butler
represents Poitier.

US, Europe intensify bid to isolate Gadhafi


WASHINGTON The United States and
European allies intensified efforts to isolate
Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi on Monday,
redoubling demands for him to step down,
questioning his mental state and warning that
those who stay loyal to him risk losing their
wealth and being prosecuted for human rights
abuses.
Europe, which buys most of Libya's oil
exports, outlined fresh sanctions to force the
dictator'to stop attacks on civilians and step
down after 42 years of iron-fisted rule. The
European Union issued travel bans and an
asset freeze against senior Libyan officials, and
ordered an arms embargo on the country.
Germany proposed a 60-day economic
embargo to prevent Gadhafi from using oil
and other revenues to repress his people.
The EU has much more leverage over Libya
than the United States since Europe buys 85
per cent of Libyan oil exports and Gadhafi
and his family are thought to have significant
assets in Britain, Switzerland and Italy. Switzer-
land and Britain already have frozen Libyan
assets. The travel and financial sanctions are
aimed at peeling away loyalists from Gadhafi in
the hope of further isolating him.
"These sanctions and accountability mech-
anisms should make all members of the Libyan
regime think about the choice they have before
them: violate human rights and he held
accountable or stop the violence and respect
the Libyan people's call for change," U.S.
Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice
told reporters following crisis meetings on
Libya at the White House. "There's no escap-
ing that critical choice." ;
As the Pentagon moved naval and air forces
closer to Libya amid active international dis-
cussions about imposing a no-fly zone over the
country, the U.S. Treasury Department
announced it had frozen at least $30 billion in
Libyan assets since President Barack Obama
imposed financial and travel sanctions on Gad-
hafi, his family, senior Libyan officials and the
government last week. That figure is the largest
amount of money ever frozen by a U.S. sanc-
tions order? which also set out travel bans for
the Libyan leadership. Administration offi-
cials said that as long as the government con-
tinues its violent crackdown against opponents
who now control most of eastern Libya, all
options, including military ones, remain on the
table. Speaking in Geneva to the U.N. Human
Rights Council, Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton said the United States and Euro-
pean nations were exploring the idea of restrict-
ing airspace to prevent Gadhafi's government
from bombing its citizens.
"Gadhafi has lost the legitimacy to govern,
and it is time for him to go without further
violence or delay," she said.
At the Pentagon, officials said they were
moving forces in the region in case they were

needed but did not say what they might be
used for.
The U.S. has a regular military presence in
the Mediterranean Sea, two aircraft carriers
in the Persian Gulf area and a wide range of
surveillance equipment available for use in the
region. Without specific information about
what assets were being moved and where, it
was impossible to tell whether the U.S. moves
were intended as a military threat or were sim-
ply a symbolic show of force.
A flight ban seemed unlikely in the short
term. Senior U.S. officials said the issue was not
discussed during Clinton's meeting with Russ-
ian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, whose
country would have to support such a move if
the U.S. and its allies wanted authorization
from the U.N. Security Council. Lavrov dis-
missed the idea in public remarks.
Even before the EU announced the new
sanctions,.France pledged to send two planes
with humanitarian aid to Libya's opposition
stronghold of Benghazi after days of increasing
concern about the hundreds, and potentially
thousands, of deaths. After meetings with oth-
er nations'. foreign policy chiefs in Geneva,
Clinton said the U.S. was sending two aid teams
to help Libyan refugees. One would go to
Egypt and the other to Tunisia to deal with,
the influx of fleeing Libyans. The U.S. has
pledged an initial $10 million to help refugees.
Gadhafi, meanwhile, in an interview with
"ABC News, dismissed the idea of leaving,
rejected the allegations that he had ordered a
crackdown on opponents and repeated his
belief that the Libyan people love him, a claim
that was met by derision in Washington.
State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley
said the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Gene Cretz,
who has been in Washington since early Janu-
ary for consultations, had been speaking to a
broad range of Libyan opposition figures but
declined to identify which ones.
He also said the Libyan government had
notified the administration that it had fired its
ambassador to the United States, Ali Aujali,
who last week joined the opposition, and had
replaced him with a Gadhafi loyalist.
The U.S. closed its embassy in Tripoli on
Friday after the remaining diplomats were
evacuated but has not broken diplomatic rela-
tions with Libya. Last Monday, Aujali joined
other Libyan diplomats in calling for Gadhafi
to step down although he said he would not
resign his post as' ambassador.
Amid the flurry of international activity,
Obama kept up his telephone diplomacy and
discussed Libya with Canadian Prime Minister
Stephen Harper. Obama expressed his appre-
ciation for Canada's decision to impose its own
set of sanctions against the Gadhafi regime,
the White House said.

I don't recall an




MP ever being




so disrespectful


EDITOR, The Tribune
I realize that I am 61 years
of age and I also realize that it
is a ripe age for Alzheimers
to start to set in on some
human beings.
However, unless I am los-
ing my memory I do not
remember any member of
Parliament ever being so dis-
respectful that they would try
to inject their wishes on Par-
liament while a Minister of
Finance was delivering any
type of Budget.
Wednesday, February
23rd, is a sad day in the life of
the Bahamas for more than
one reason.
1. That is what I remem-
ber as the first time this has
ever happened.
2. It is anyone's legal right
to demonstrate as long as they
have the permission to do so
in a civil manner.
3. When demonstrators
stop demonstrating and start
to try breaking down barri-
cades it is no longer a peace-
ful demonstration.
On Friday afternoon I was
on my way to the airport and
listening to Mr. Steve McK-
inney's talk show- and I was
shocked by some of what I
heard on airwaves that just a
short time ago Bahamians did
not have the privilege of lis-
tening to. How soon we forget
who made these airwaves
open for the public.
They were bad mouthing
the Rt. Hon. P. M. inno
uncertain terms and blaming
him for the Police having dogs
in Parliament square on
Wednesday while the demon-
strationwas taking place.
I have spent the last two,
days trying to figure out why
they were upset because any-
one who was in the demon-
stration and did not intend to
break the law had nothing to
fear from the dogs. On the
other hand the Police with.
their secret information must
have had a very good reason
to have dogs there. Remem-
ber to be forewarned and pre-
pared is the smart thing that
anyone does. So if the Police
knew that there were going
to be criminal-minded per-
sons in the group then they
did the right thing to be pre-
pared to protect the innocent
people who were on the other
side of the barricades.
These are very troubling
times when we have MP's get-
ting on public platforms and
deliberately trying to incite
people who are listening, to


take the law into their own
hands because some politi-
cians are so desperate for
power that they do not care
who gets hurt or what gets
destroyed in this country as
long they can get this power,
all to the detriment of the
majority of Bahamians.
If the majority of Bahami-
ans were not happy about the
sale of BTC the demonstra-
tors would have no problem
in getting support and no one
would have to bus and pay
people,to come to Bay Street.
I hear a lot being said
about Bahamians owning
BTC, but I would like any
Bahamian who is not on
BTC's payroll to tell me how
much money they have made
from BTC during the last 20
years.
However, Bahamians from
all walks of life will now have
the privilege, if they want to
buy shares, to do so and say:
"I now for the first time in my
life own a piece of BTC -
because as it stands now I do
not own anything in BTC'it
belongs to the Government
of the Bahamas. Also
through all the, talk about


Bluewater buying BTC, I
have never heard a single
wor4 uttered about Bluewater
agreeing to put any shares on
the market for Bahamians to
buy so I have to assume that
whoever was behind Bluewa-
ter wanted it "all for me
baby" style and that suggests
enough to all sensible
Bahamians for them to figure
for themselves who was prob-
ably behind Bluewater's pur-
chase attempt.
Sadly it was not so very
long ago that my good friend
Chuck Virgil, I believe, was
the victim of words that were
uttered from the platform at a
,rally.
We are all first and fore-
most Bahamians who have to
live in this country together
and we should all be proud
to be Bahamian and also we
have to be big enough to real-
ize that in any race in life
there will always be a winner
and a loser, but this does not
mean that we have to tear
down what it has taken so
long to build up in the
Bahamas, we all have our
children and future genera-
tions to worry about and it is
our duty from God that we
leave a better place behind
than what we found.

Some union leaders have shown

extraordinary incompetence

EDITOR, The Tribune.
. It's interesting that in the year 2011, some people in our
Bahamas are still try to bring racial tensions to our country just
for political power, and to cover their incompetence. I'm refer-
ring of course to the leadership of the PLP party and to the
leaders of some of the unions.
The PLP leadership claim they don't want BTC to be sold to
foreigners. Yet despite all their press statements, they still haven't
told the Bahamian people who they were prepared to give BTC
away to Who is behind Bluewater? Are the beneficiaries for-
eigners or is it simply a PLP leadership alliance? I am pretty sure
that if it is a PLP alliance the vast majority of PLP voters would
not get anything out of the deal. They never do anyway.
Some union leaders have demonstrated extraordinary levels of
stupidity, racism and incompetence. They don't want to answer
to the white man. If this is how people- feel then why work for
Atlantis, Baha Mar. or any other major company owned by a
"white" man. If union leaders want to turn our country into a "lit-
tle Egypt", they will soon realise they don't have the support they
think they do. Most Bahamians aren't prepared to let their coun-
try be destroyed just to accommodate the PLP's political ambi-
tions and the union leader's "fat" salaries.

Poor Police investigation, unnecessary detenlion
EDITOR, The Tribune.
The failure of the Police to properly investigate a report of
armed robbery last August led to an innocent person being
detained at Her Majesty's Prison for six months.
Kemir McDonald was picked up off the street after a lady (com-
plainant) pointed him out to a police officer as looking like the sus-
pect who had robbed her one week earlier. Kemir did not fit the
description of the alleged robber.
Later at the Police Station he was placed in a line-up of persons
(identification parade) bearing similar description to the robber,
and each person in the line-up was requested to repeat the words
used by the robber at the scene.
The complainant failed to identify Kemir. Kemir's house was
searched and nothing was found to connect him to the robbery.
Kemir denied the allegation against him and gave the Police an
alibi.
He told the Police that at the time of the offence he was at his
father's birthday party, which fortunately, was attended by some
thirty family members and friends.
The police failed to check this easily verifiable story, and he was
charged..
On such flimsy evidence I am surprised that the Senior Police
Officer and the Director of Public Prosecutions in the office of the
Attorney General allowed this case to go to the Supreme Court.
The case was heard in the Supreme Court before judge and
jury and family members and friends were able to testify on
Kemir's behalf.
One of the family members had taken a photograph of Kemir at
the party and the film bore the exact date and time it was taken
confirming that Kemir was nowhere in the area of the robbery. ,The
prosecution could not convince one juror that Kemir was the actu-
al culprit, and the jury, after being properly instructed, returned a
unanimous verdict of not guilty. Kemir was at last freed.
The downside of this episode is that had the police done a prop-
er job Kemir would not have had to languish in prison for six
months.
As a former police officer, Director of Local government and
now an Attorney-at-law I wholeheartedly support the police in the
fight against crime which is overwhelming us, but I put this matter
to your readers to express my ire and that of the family in the way
Kemir's case was handled.

Preserving the legacy'





of Sir Sidney Poitier
:S.S"d


HIS acting roles have run the
gamut from the debonair doctor
turned dinner guest to the tena-
cious FBI agent on the trail of a
vicious killer, but Sir Sidney
Poitier's mark of distinction
extends far beyond the trailblazing
roles he played as a black actor on
the silver screen.
A talented artist, visionary and
humanitarian, Sir Sidney's classic
characters were once again
brought to life last week as the
College of the Bahamas and the
School of English Studies hosted a
film festival in his honour for the
second consecutive year.
"Sir Sidney has been widely
recognized not only for his ground-
breaking contributions to the arts,
but because many of his roles chal-
lenged pre-conceived notions
about race, class and socio-eco-
nomic status," festival organizers
said.
Appearing in more than 50 films,
Sir Sidney who grew up in Cat
. Island set for himself standards
of performance .that were viewed
as impossible for black actors a^t
the time. Among his most distin-
guished achievements is an Acad-
emy Award win in 1963 for his
lead role in the film "Lilies of the '


TONY CURTIS AND SIDNEY POITIER in The Defiant Ones


Field."
Creator and organiser of the
2011 Sidney Poitier Film Festival,
Dr Ian Strachan, Associate Pro-
fessor in the School of English
Studies, believes that the actor's.
legacy should be preserved for
future generations.
"The festival is a key means of
achieving that goal. Last year, the
College also hosted the Sidney
Poitier International Conference


that provided a platform for schol-
ars and film enthusiasts to explore
and debate Poitier's achievements,
contributions and legacy," organ-
isers said.
Dr Strachan described this year's
festival as an opportunity for
Baharnians of various age groups
and walks of like "to share in his
legacy, a legacy, which he has left
to the entire World."
The classic SidAey Poitier films


being shown last week date back to
the start of his career including
"No Way Out", which was banned'
in the Bahamas, "A Band of
Angels", in which Poitier starred
alongside Clarke Gable, "Porgy
and Bess", his one film with
Dorothy Dandridge, and "The
Defiant Ones".
According to Dr Strachan, the
film festival, which he hopes will be
an annual event, will broaden its
scope of artists and offerings in the
future.
"In future festivals, we envision
broadening the selection of films to

Customs dive unit



in Miami targets



drug smugglers


MIAMI
Associated Press

A TEAM of elite divers
donned wetsuits and air
tanks and descended into
the murky waters beneath
the 498-foot (152-meter)
container ship M/V
Seaboard Pride, on a mis-
sion in the daik to. search
for an unusual stowaway:
drugs.
The seven members of the
U.S. Immigration and Cus-
toms Enforcement dive
team, formed in 2004 and
the only one of its kind in
the U.S., were searching for
large metal boxes that Latin
American cocaine traffick-
ers sometimes weld or
clamp onto freighters and
even cruise ships to smug-.
gle drugs. The boxes also


could be used to hide ter-
rorist bombs or weapons.
Once in the U.S., the box-
es can be opened by divers-
working with the drug orga-
nizations. Sometimes they
are detached and later
opened at another location.
The so-called parasitic
devices have been found ori
vessels in Miami, West Palm
Beach and elsewhere con-
taining bricks of cocaine and
'other illegal drugs -
although, so far, no bombs
or weapons.
ICE agent Dean Lang,
assistant chief of the dive
team, said the intense law,
enforcement focus on drug
trafficking through Mexico
could push some cocaine
smuggling operations to U.S.
coasts and ports. Miami in
the 1980s was a main avenue


for cocaine, and U.S. offi-
cials don't want a return to
the violent "cocaine cow-
boy" "days, when rival drug
traffickers battled in South
Florida for control.
"If you cut off one way for
drugs to get in, they will find
another way," Lang said.
When agents first boarded
the white-and-green
Seaboard Pride, they
informed its captain of the
random check and secured
all machinery so none of the
13 mainly Filipino crew
members would inadver-
tently start a propeller or
pump. The captain, Dariusz
Karbowiak, said he had just
unloaded a dozen 40-foot
(12-meter) containers of
fruit and .seafood and did
not suspect anything illegal.
"It's no problem. We have


no problem." said Kar-
-bowiak, 42, who is from
Koszalin, Poland. "I don't
have any events where I sus-
pect something wrong."
" The ICE agents quickly
obtained blueprints of the
ship's hull. With two agents
staying aboard, the-divers
jumped feet-first 'off a sea
wall into Biscayne Bay to
execute a search known as a
"half-necklace" meaning
they would swim under-
neath one side, circle the
ship's stern by the massive
propeller and then inspect
the other side. They held a
length of iope to communi-
cate with various hand tugs
and pulls.
"Don't squeeze too tight,"
the ICE dive team leader,
agent Joseph Skidmore, told
the men. "Just keep a loose
grip."
It's not as easy as it seems.
The water was dark green,
even on a sunny February
morning. Currents are
treacherous -and unpre-
dictable in the relatively
shallow water about 15 feet
(4.5 meters) below the sur-
face. The divers sometimes
encounter sharks, barracu-
da and eels, and they can
feel strong vibrations from
the ship inches above.
It's extremely dark, and
the divers can only see a lit-'
tle way ahead, said Alan
Vega, a team member who
has done about 100 dives
over the past three years.
"You have a flashlight and
it's like very burgundy red,
which is the paint they put

on the ship," Vega said.
"And you're just kind of
scanning along ... to see if
there is anything unusual.
It's not a nice scenic
Caribbean dive."
A few yards away from
the ship, a police boat
motors slowly back and
forth to prevent other craft
from. approaching and
just in case there's a prob-
lem.
Sometimes a ship is tar-
geted because it spent time
in a drug-source country
such as Colombia. Other
times, tips are received
about ships that may have
had boxes attached during
repairs or maintenance
when they are taken out of
the water.
Other dives are random,
said Anthony Mangione,
chief of the ICE field office
in Miami.
Back on the bay, the ICE
team found nothing amiss
on the Seaboard Pride dur-
ing a 20-minute search.
"Everything looks good,
but it needs cleaning," Skid-
more told the captain, Kar-
bowiak.
With that, Karbowiak and
his ship were cleared for
their next trip to the
Caribbean island of St.
Thomas. Although the
divers came up empty, each
dive is invaluable training


for other missions, includ-
ing possible attempts by al-
Qaida or other terrorist
groups to use ports like Mia-
mi to bring in explosive
devices or blow up the ships
themselves.
"Smugglers, terrorists, you
know, they adapt," Vega
said. "So it could be a ship
coming in from London,
who is an ally of the U.S.
We'll search it, because you
never know where that wild
card is going to be."
When they aren't scan-
ning the cargo vessels, the
divers also scour waterways
when presidents and digni-
taries visit.
Sometimes they have kept
watch while investigating
drug trafficking and other
crimes, or helped local
police locate guns and stolen
cars from lakes and quar-
ries.
In January, for instance.
the team made a grisly find
in a canal: a still-unidenti-
fied human skull.
It's even more difficult to
see during those forays into
fresh water, the agents said
- and tougher to watch for
alligators, crocodiles and
poisonous snakes.
"South Florida has lots of
different kinds of threats,"
Mangione said. "This is a
challefiging environment to
work in."

THE TRIBUNE

















Retired police



chief heads



Exuma farmers



association 1


RETIRED Deputy Commissioner
of Police John Rolle has been elected
president of the Farmers Association
of Exuma.
He and his team say they aim to
bring back the days when the island
was a premier agriculture producer.
"We are serious about farming in
Exuma," he told a meeting with
BAIC executives. "We believe that
the interest shown by BAIC will
cause the resurgence in farming to
be lifted to another level."
Bahamas Agricultural and Indus-
trial Corporation (BAIC) executive
chairman Edison Key and a team of
officers also toured Exuma farms and


participated in a handicraft gradua-
tion ceremony.
"Your presence with us," said Mr
Rolle, "bespeaks the passion and
commitment that you have to see the
Bahamas move to another level as it
relates to the production of food in
the Bahamas.
"We hear that we import some
$500 million worth of food annually.
We tell you now that the Farmers
Association of Exuma will endeav-
our to reduce that figure.
"There has been a resurgence of
farming in Exuma. The interest is
very high and we in the association
will endeavour to bring all to bear to

make the Bahamas a better place as it
relates to producing our own food."
Mr Rolle commended the assis-
tance-of BAIC's Exuma domestic
investment officer, retired Family
Island Administrator Everette Hart.
"There are some challenges," he
said, "but I am sure that with (Mr
Hart) working along with us those
challenges will be overcome.
"We appreciate his dedication and
commitment. He works very closely
with us."
With the resurgence of agriculture,
Mr Rolle said the association is seek-
ing a permanent site for a farmers
market, away from the present three-
stall location at the fish fry but with-
in the capital, George Town.
"We are determined to take farm-
ing into the schools," said Mr Rolle.
"We are asking the Ministry of Edu-
cation to make plots of land avail-
able so the children of every school in
Exuma will be introduced to 'farm-
ing at an early age."
Other executives of the association
are: vice president Stephan Hall, sec-
retary Bernard Rolle, and treasurer
Althea Ferguson.
Mr Key pointed out the concerns
of Jacques Diouf, director-general of
the Food and Agriculture Organisa-


tion of the United Nations (FAO),
who said: "We are indeed on the
verge of what could turn out to be
another major food crisis. The FAO
food price index at the end of 2010
returned to its highest level.
"Drought in Russia and the export
restrictions adopted by its govern-
ment, together with lower crop har-
vests than expected, first in the Unit-
ed States and Europe, then in Aus-
tralia and Argentina, have triggered a
process of soaring agricultural com-
modity prices on international mar-
kets."
Mr Key pointed out that it is from
many of these countries that the
Bahamas imports its staples.
"The current global economic
upheaval which has already expressed
itself in dreaded unemployment and
higher costs of living for Bahamians
begs the question:
How long can we continue to send
some $500 million out of the country
each year for goods and services,
much of which we can easily provide
ourselves?" he asked.
BAIC, he said, has endeavoured
to inspire Bahamians throughout the
islands to produce as much of their
own food as possible on the islands
where they live.


"Oftentimes we speak of food
security or self-sufficiency," he said.
"Well, national self-sufficiency is
achieved only when the same obtains
at the local level. A self-sufficient
Exuma contributes to a self-sufficient
Bahamas.
"And, thanks to.Exumians, our
labour has not been in vain. I can see
that Exuma is on the way to becom-
ing a major producer of a variety of
fruits, vegetables and root crops."
Exuma was "well represented" at
the recent North Andros seminar on
greenhouse technology, he recalled.
"With quality as our watchword,
there is a bright future in food pro-
duction," said Mr Key. "People have
to eat."
He commended Exumians for their
initiative in taking advantage of
opportunities to provide for them-
selves rather than waiting for the gov-
ernment to do for them.
"You see, the real question is not
so much what canthe government
do for you, as much as it is, what can,
you do for yourself," said Mr Key.
Accompanying Mr Key were
BAIC general manager Benjamin
Rahming, and assistant general man-
agers Arnold Dorsett (.agriculture)
and Donnalee Bowe (handicraft).

Protest against



the sale of the



BTC is odd


By RICK LOWE
ACCORDING to news
reports, 800 to 1,000 peo-
ple blocked Bay Street last
week to protest the sale of
BTC to Cable and Wire-
less/LIME and it all seems
odd.
Some people were say-
ing that rights' are being
violated by selling BTC.
But what rights are being
violated?
Yes, sometimes Mr.
Ingraham can be brash, but
does that mean he is uncar-
ing, a dictator, or corrupt,
or violating rights as
alleged? It's doubtful.
Using emotive language
and trying to rile people up
as some are doing could
violate rights for sure.
What the protesters are
missing is BTC is not
owned by Bahamians.
That's an illusion. A politi-
cal construct. It is owned
by the Bahamas Govern-
ment.
Over the years succes-
sive governments have led
us down the garden path by
wasting and borrowing
beyond the country's abili-
ty to sustain, and the sale of
BTC might help keep the
Bahamian dollar stable and
reduce some of the debt
that we all have to pay one
way or the other..


ILDz:P rN 1 0


The Opposition seems
shameless on this one, after
trying to sell BTC them-
selves under similar cir-
cumstances to a company
called Bluewater, now it
would seem that some are
trying to incite people.
Another turnabout by
the Opposition was the
Constitutional Referendum
of 2002. Both parties
agreed in principle in the
House of Assembly, then
one campaigned against it,
confusing the electorate. .
The latest reason not to
sell is there are complaints
about LIME posted on the
Internet.
If you research ever
company in the world
online it seems you will find
bad comments. We survey
some of our clients, and last
quarter we had an 84 per
cent approval rating (our
goal is 85 per cent), but the
one client that complained,
really complained, bringing
the results of all the good
comments lower. Is that
what is happening with
C WC? We also find that
often it's people with com- *
plaints that fill the survey
out. Those that had no


issues, do not take the time
to respond.
Are there similar com-
plaints about BTC going
around on the Internet?
Could the government
have been more open? No
doubt. Both the FNM or
PLP governments over the
years could have been
more open. Promises of a
Freedom of Information
Act have been made by
each of them. Let's see who
passes it into law. That
might help with govern-
ment transparency in the
future.
There were apparently
no dissenenters before
BTC was sold, at least pub-
licly. So why the dissent
now? The government cor-
porations should-be sold if-
for nothing more than to
get politics and politicians
out of it.
All this protesting is odd.
When \ou dig a little deep-
er unseemnly politics appear
to be at work?

THE TRIBUNE










THE TIBUNETUESDY, MACHL1,011,NAGES


Dr Bernard Nottage calls




for referendum on BTC sale


FROM page one

"The Prime Minister seems
to have the understanding
that winning an election gives
him and his party the right to
implement any and every
programme in the way they
see fit without regard to pub-
lic concerns. Yes, winning an
election gives that party a
mandate to govern, but
democratic governance
demands that the governors
listen to the governed."
Dr Nottage said that there
is no difference from a doctor


treating a patient you must
get consent to proceed with
significant or major proce-
dures.
"That is why we hear the
idle boasting by those oppo-
site that a decision has been
made in regard to the sale of
BTC and nothing can prevent
it. It is that arrogance that has
caused them to go mad and
put into an agreement for sale
a self imposed penalty of $100
million if there is any breach.
That is why we hear these
false reports about bogus
polls that suggest that the


majority of Bahamians
approve the sale of BTC to
Cable and Wireless.
"And that is why the prin-
cipal decision makers, who
long ago pledged to the
Bahamian people that they
would never sell the majority
shares in BTC to a foreign
company have reneged on
their commitment; that is why
they reneged on the state-
ment that they would never
sell to Cable and Wireless.
"The only sentiment that
has not been reversed is the
statement that if BTC was


given to Bahamians to run it
would not succeed. That in
the face of the fact that
Bahamians kept Batelco, and
later BTC as one of the lead--
ing telecoms companies in the
Caribbean until this latest
version of the FNM govern-
ment stopped its forward
development when it
assumed the government in
2007.
"Indeed, in my opinion, it-
is their mismanagement of
BTC these last three years
that has eroded the value of
BTC," Dr Nottage said.

Mr Ingraham explained that when the Public Util-

Authority (URCA) there was $6.8 million left in the
PUC account.
He said $1 million was supposed to be transferred to
URCA and $5.8 million was to go to the government
in order to finance the upgrading exercise at ZNS.
Because URCA "spent some of our money", the
Prime Minister said, there was only $4.3 million avail-
able for a ZNS subsidy. Mr Ingraham said that amount
could only- cover the ZNS separation exercise and
operational expenditures.

to hear what the government's posi-
tion was with regard to the Memo-
randum of Understanding on the
sale, and that he was visiting and
meeting with persons to hear "both
sides" of the argument.
Speaking to The Tribune yester-
day, Mr McCartney said: "The com-
munication tabled by the govern-
ment outlined certain things, such
as the advantages of Cable and
Wireless, the condition of sale, it
spoke of the Memorandum of
Understanding, and it spoke about

government's perspective."
With the next general election
slated to be held no later than May
2012, concerns have been raised in
both political parties over the nom-


nation of candidates and their out-
spokenness in public on various
issues. With this in mind, Mr
McCartney who has already
resigned from Cabinet for feeling
stagnated politically in his previous
Ministerial roll said that he is the
Member of Parliament for Bamboo
Town and as such has to answer to
his constituents first.
Mr McCartney said: "We have a
significant debate coming up. We're

would like my constituents to hear
all the arguments, and to hear from
my constituents what they have to
say about it.
"It's so important that they have
their say. I am their representative
it's important that I listen to what

Mr Ingraham said the government is keeping a

on growing unrest in the oil-rich Middle East. He

nine of the Bahamians,
claiming they were straw
vendors attempting to
defraud the US govern-
ment by trafficking in
counterfeit goods. The
women faced up to three
years in federal prison.
Three months after the
initial arrests, all of the
straw vendors were back
in the Bahamas. The
Bahamas government
through the New York
consulate office and the
Bahamian American Cul-
tural Society, and other
agencies, assisted the straw
vendors.
Throughout the ordeal,
the Progressive Liberal
Party (PLP) criticised the
government's handling of
the situation. Opposition
members of parliament
urged the government not
to 'come off as politically
impotent." They ques-
tioned the responsibility of
the government "for being -
complicit" in the activities
of the straw vendors.
The PLP launched an
investigation into the situ-
ation and sent representa-
tives to the US to lobby on
behalf of the vendors.
They took credit for the
government's decision to
assist the vendors and
encouraged the govern-
ment to "do more, includ-
ing getting bail for the
women and ultimately, try-
ing to get the charges
against them dropped."
Attorney Elliot Sagor
was hired by the govern-
ment to assist the incar-
cerated vendors. The gov-
ernment also provided
assistance to the family
members of the vendors
through the Ministry of
Education, the Depart-
ment of Social Services
and the Ministry of
Labour.
Based on reports detail-
ing the concerns of the
straw vendors in US cus-
tody, the government
issued a formal notice to
the US Embassy in Nas-
sau over their treatment.
Most of the vendors
pleaded guilty to the
charges and were sen-
tenced to time served and
ordered out of the US. At
. least one of the vendors
was served an order of
restitution, and another to
supervised probation.


Danish family's sailboat

hijacked in Indian Ocean


COPENHAGEN, Denmark
Associated Press
PIRATES have hijacked a
Danish sailboat with four adults
and three children aboard as they
were crossing the Indian Ocean,
Denmark's government said
Monday.
Most hostages captured in the
pirate-infested waters off East
Africa are professional sailors, not
families. Pirates are not known to
have captured children before.
The Danish Foreign Ministry
said the ship sent a distress signal
on Thursday. On board was a
Danish couple, their three chil-
dren aged 12-16 and two
adult crew members, also Danes.
"It has now been confirmed
that the sailboat was hijacked by
pirates in the Indian Ocean," the
ministry said in a statement.
Two days before the Danish
sailboat sent the distress signal,
four Americans were killed by
Somali pirates in a hostage stand-
off. They were the first Ameri-
cans slain by Somali pirates since
a wave of attacks began six years
ago.
Danish Foreign Minister Lene
Espersen said she was "deeply
concerned" about the situation
and expressed her sympathies to
the Danes on the boat and their
relatives.
"It is almost unbearable to
think that there are children
involved and I can only sharply
denounce the pirates' actions,"
Espersen said.
Government officials will do
"everything in our power" to help
the Danes, she said, but would
not be able to release detailed
information about their efforts


publicly, "since experience shows
that it doesn't help in resolving
the case."
* Danish news agency Ritzau, cit-
ing Foreign Ministry spokes-
woman Charlotte Slente, said the
boat was believed to be heading
toward Somalia.
Earlier Monday, the European
Union Naval Force said Somali
pirates hijacked a Greek-owned
cargo vessel with 23 crew on
board.
The MV Dover was seized
Monday in the north Arabian sea,
260 miles (420 kilometers) north-
east of the Omani poft of Salalah,
the naval force said. The MV
Dover was on its way to Yemen
from Pakistan when it was
attacked. It was registered with
shipping and naval authorities.
There are three Romanians, 19
Filipinos and a Russian aboard
the Panama-flagged vessel. There
is no communication with the ship
and no information regarding the
condition of the crew.
In a separate incident, pirates
released the MV Izumi on Friday,
the naval force said Monday. The
Panama-flagged vessel and its Fil-
ipino crew of 20 are believed to be
making for a safe port. There is no
information on the condition of
the vessel or the crew. The ship
was taken in October.
Somali pirates have extended
their range east and south after
increased naval patrols in the Gulf
of Aden. They hold more than
660 hostages and some 30 vessels.
If a vessel's owner is unable to
pay the multimillion dollar ran-
soms the pirates demand, they
may keep it and use it to stalk
other vessels until they run out of
supplies or break down.

The King's Speech





reigns at Oscars,





but some want





comedians back


NEW YORK
Associated Press


IN THE clear light of a post-
Oscar Monday morning, at
least two themes had emerged.
The first: British royalty reigns
- again! And the second:
Bring.back the comedians!
Maybe it was inevitable that
on such a predictable Oscar
night the acting awards and
even the best picture win for
"The King's Speech" were
widely anticipated attention
would focus on the show itself,
especially the hosting.
And many did see the charm
in hosts Anne Hathaway and
James Franco, for whom the
adjectives "young" and "hip"
seemed to become part of their
very names during the run-up
to the Oscars especially in
their clever "Inception"-
inspired opening montage.
But Oscar producers must
have known their telecast was
running into trouble when the
night's biggest laughs went not
to the newly minted hosts but
to former host Billy Crystal -
and even to the vintage clip he
presented of the dear depart-
ed Bob Hope, with classic
Oscar jokes that never grow
old.
And it wasn't lost on some
that even the hosts' best bit, the
montage in which they inserted
themselves into nominated
films, harked back to Crystal's
own introductory gags during
his eight years as host.
No wonder Hathaway
seemed'so admiring of Crystal
when he showed up. Not as
much as the crowd, though it
leaped to its feet even before
he said a word. "So, where was
I?" he quipped.
So did the Academy, in its
zeal to reach a younger demo-
graphic, overreach? And do the
Oscars need a single, solid
comedian to hold the night
together?
That was certainly the case
many were making online. "It

Awards on Sunday. (AP)

looks as if the Academy will
have to give the hosting hon-
ors to Ricky Gervais next
year," wrote Toby Young on
the website -of the Daily Tele-
graph of London. "It's the only
way to save the Oscars from
certain death." On Slate.com,
a headline said the decidedly
laid-back Franco "Might Have
Been Reluctantly Emceeing a
Distant Cousin's Bat Mitzvah."
And comic Andy Borowitz
tweeted during the show: "This
is riveting television. By the
way, I'm watching the Knicks
and.the Heat now."
Jamie Masada, co-owner of
the Laugh Factory comedy club
in Hollywood, watched the


show with a group of comics
including Dave Chapelle. "It
got boring very quickly," he
said until Crystal came on.
They all applauded.
"Finally somebody great! He
was wonderful," Masada said
in a phone interview just after
the. show. The Oscars, he
argued, need a comedian, full
stop. "A comedian keeps you
connected all evening long," he
said. "You wait to see what he
or she is going to say about
what's happening. It gives the
show heart."
Masada said he especially
enjoyed laughing at Hope's
famous joke, in a clip intro-
duced by Crystal Sunday, about
the Oscars, "or, as they're
known at my house, Passover."
So did film historian Leonard
Maltin, who calls it "one of the
greatest jokes ever written."
But you don't have to be a
comic to make a great host, or
deliver a classic quip. Actor
David Niven will long be
remembered for his stellar
response to the streaker who
sped by him in 1974: "Isn't it
fascinating to think," Niven
noted drily, "that probably the
only laugh that man will ever


get in his life is by stripping off
and showing his shortcom-
ings?"
Likewise, actor Alec Bald-
win was a hit when he hosted
alongside Steve Martin last
, year, as he was in Sunday's
opening montage. As Franco
and Hathaway tried to figure
out whose dream they had
'invaded, "Inception"-like, Bald-
win assured them it wasn't his.
"If this were my dream," he
said, "I'd be hosting the Oscars
again." (From Baldwin's dream
to producers' ears?)
You can also be a popular
comic and bomb at the Oscars
David Letterman has made
a running joke about the bad
reviews he got for his one Oscar
gig.
The comic best known for his
yeoman Oscar duties was
Hope, who hosted the first of
his 18 shows (not consecutive)
in 1940, and the first televised
show in 1953. Others included
Johnny Carson, of course,
Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stew-
art, Chris Rock, and Ellen
DeGeneres.
"Standup comedians do
know how to handle a room,"
said Jonathan Kuntz, a profes-


sor of film and Hollywood his-
tory at the University of Cali-
fornia, Los Angeles. "They
know how to handle all kinds of
situations. They seem so much
more confident."
This year's hosts, according
to Kuntz, were not terrible and
not great -just OK.
"They did look like they
were reciting lines," he said.
"They didn't provide any classic
moments."
But maybe that's a little
much to ask. After all,.the
Oscars are a key marketing
vehicle for Hollywood.
"And Hollywood's core audi-
ence is younger people," Kuntz
says. So the hosts were chosen
to appeal to that demographic.
, It's not clear yet how they
fared an estimated 37.6 mil-
lion viewers watched this year,
down nearly 10 percent from
2010 (but up from 2008 and
2009). Preliminary Nielsen rat-
ings said that numbers in the
18-to-49-year-old demograph-
ic were down only 2 percent
Kuntz says it's not as easy as
assuming that a comic would
be better. With all the comics
who have hosted, he says, the
next great host has not been
found.
"They haven't found a Bob
Hope or a Billy Crystal for the
21st century yet," he says. "You
just never know until they try it.,
You just have to throw them
out there and see what hap-
pens. "


REPORT: IRAN

OPPOSITION

LEADERS JAILED
TEHRAN, Iran
Associated Press
IRANIAN authorities have
taken senior opposition leaders
Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mah-
di Karroubi to a prison in
Tehran, a reformist website said
Monday. A semiofficial news
agency denied the report.
Kaleme.com said Mousavi, his
wife Zahra Rahnavard, as well as
Karroubi and his wife, Fatemeh
. Karroubi, were transferred to
Heshmatieh prison in the Iranian
capital. It was not immediately.
clear when they were moved.
"According to the latest infor-
mation obtained from reliable
sources, Moisavi and Karroubi,
together with their wives ... have
been arrested and transferred to
Heshmatieh prison,"
kaleme.com said.
But the semiofficial Fars news
agency, which is close to the
powerful Revolutionary Guard,
denied the report. Fars quoted
an unnamed judiciary official as
saying the men were still under!
house arrest and have not been'
allowed to leave their homes or
have any outside contact.
Calls placed by The Associ-
ated Press to judiciary officials
went unanswered.
The imprisonment, if con-
firmed, would mark a major
escalation of Iran's political crisis
amid defiant calls from the oppo-
sition to stand up to the ruling
system.
Earlier Monday, Iran's state
prosecutor, Gholam Hossein
MOhseni Ejehi, said that author-
ities had cut all outside contact
with the opposition leaders as
part of a campaign to silence dis-
sent.
The official IRNA news
agency quoted Ejehi as warning
that authorities would take "oth-
er measures" against Mir Hos-
sein Mousavi and Mahdi Kar-
roubi if necessary.
"In the first step, their con-
tacts such as meetings and tele-
phone conversations have been
restricted," Ejehi was quoted by
IRNA as saying. "Should cir-
cumstances arise, other measures
will be taken."
Ejehi did not say where they
were being held,
Mousavi and Karroubi were
placed under house arrest after
urging supporters to attend a
Feb. 14 rally, Clashes between
proteslers and security forces
duriiig the demonstrations killed
two and wounded dozens.
Katroubi's website, saham-
tnews.org, said Iranian security
forces took the two and their
wives to an "unknown location"
on Thursday.
Activists and opposition mem-
bers have demanded Mousavi
and Karroubi be released, vow-
ing to stage demonstrations
every Tuesday until they are
freed.

Pro-Gadhafi




forces close in on




rebel-held cities


TRIPOLI, Libya
Associated Press

INTERNATIONAL pres-
sure on Moammar Gadhafi to
end his crackdown on oppo-
nents escalated Monday as his
loyalists closed in on 'rebel-
held cities closest to the capi-
tal. The U.S. moved naval and
air forces closer to Libya and
said all options were open,
including the use of warplanes
to patrol the North African
nation's skies and protect
Libyans. threatened by their
leader.
France said it would start
flying aid to the opposition-
controlled eastern half of the
country. The European Union
imposed an arms embargo and
other sanctions, following the
lead of the U.S. and the U.N.
The EU was also considering
the creation of a no-fly zone
over Libya. And the U.S. and
Europe were freezing billions
in Libya's foreign assets.
"Gadhafi has lost the legiti-
macy to govern, and it is time
for him to go without further
t violence or delay," U.S. Sec-
retary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton said. "No option
is off the table. That of course
includes a no-fly zone," Clin-
ton added. British Prime Min-
ister David Cameron told
British lawmakers: "We do not
in any way rule out the use of
military assets" to deal with
Gadhafi's regime.
Gadhafi, who has launched
the most brutal crackdown of
any Arab regime facing a wave
of popular uprisings, laughed
off a question from ABC
News about whether he would
step down as the Obama
administration is demanding.
"My people love me. They
would die for me," he said.
ABC reported that Gadhafi
invited the U.N. or any other
organization to come on a fact-
finding mission.
The turmoil in the oil-rich
nation roiled markets for
another day. Libya's oil chief
said production had been cut
by around 50 percent, denting
supplies that go primarily to
Europe.
The uprising that began on
Feb. 15 has posed most serious
challenge to Gadhafi in his
more than four decades in
power. His bloody crackdown
has left hundreds, and perhaps
thousands, dead. But clashes-
appear to have eased consid-
erably over the past few days
after planeloads of foreign
journalists arrived in the capi-
tal at the government's invita-
tion.
The two sides are
entrenched, and the direction
the' uprising takes next could
depend on which can hold out
longest. Gadhafi is dug in in
Tripoli and nearby cities,
backed by his elite security
forces and militiamen who are
generally better armed than
theamilitary. His opponents,
holding the east and much of
the country's oil infrastructure,


MOAMMAR GADHAFI (AP)

also control pockets in west-
ern Libya near Tripoli. They
are backed by mutinous army
units, but those forces appear
to have limited supplies of
ammunition and weapons.
Gadhafi opponents have
moved to consolidate their
hold in the east, centered on
Benghazi Libya's second-
largest city, where the upris-
ing began. Politicians there on
Sunday set up their first lead-
ership council to manage day-
to-day affairs, taking a step
toward forming what could be
an alternative to Gadhafi's
regime.
- The opposition is backed by
numerous units of the military
in the east that joined the
uprising, and they hold sever-
al bases and Benghazi's air-
port. But so far, the units do
not appear to have melded
into a unified fighting force.
Gadhafi long kept the military
weak, fearing a challenge to
his rule, so many units are
plagued by shortages of sup-
plies and ammunition.
On Monday, pro-Gadhafi
forces retook control of the
border crossings with Tunisia
in the west after they had fall-
en under opposition control
and bombed an ammunition
depot in the rebel-held east,
residelits in the area said. The
Libyan Defense Ministry
denied the bombing.
Regime forces also moved
to tighten their ring around
two opposition-controlled
cities closest to the capital
Tripoli Zawiya and Misrata
- where the two sides are
locked in standoffs.
An Associated Press
reporter saw a large, pro-Gad-
hafi force massed on the west-
ern edge of Zawiya, some 30
miles (50 kilometers) west of
Tripoli, with about a dozen
armored vehicles along with
tanks and jeeps mounted with
anti-aircraft guns. An officer
said they were from the elite


Khamis Brigade, named after
one of Gadhafi's sons who
commands it. U.S. diplomats
have said the brigade is the
best equipped force in Libya.
Residents inside the city said
they were anticipating a possi-
ble attack.
"Our people are waiting for
them to come and, God will-
ing, we will defeat them," one
resident who only wanted to
be quoted by his first name,
Alaa, told AP in Cairo by tele-
phone.
In Misrata, Libya's third
largest city 125 miles (200 kilo-
meters) east of Tripoli, pro-
Gadhafi troops who control
part of an air base on the city's
outskirts tried to advance
Monday. But they were
repelled by opposition forces,
who included residents armed
with automatic weapons and
defected army units allied with
them, one of the opposition
fighters said.
No casualties were report-
ed and the fighter claimed that
his side had captured eight sol-
diers, including a senior officer.
The opposition controls
most of the air base, and the
fighter said dozens of anti-
Gadhafi gunmen have arrived
from further east in recent
days as reinforcements.
Several residents of the east-
ern city of Ajdabiya said Gad-
hafi's air force also bombed
an ammunition depot nearby
held by the opposition. One,
17-year-old Abdel-Bari Zwei,
reported intermittent explo-
sions and a fire, and another,
Faraj al-Maghrabi, said the
facility was partially damaged.
The site contains bombs, mis-
siles and ammunition key
for the undersupplied opposi-
tion military forces..
State TV carried a state-
ment by Libya's Defense Min-
istry denying any attempt to
bomb the depot. Ajdabiya lies
about 450 miles (750 kilome-
ters) east of Tripoli along the
Mediterranean coast.
Gadhafi supporters said
they were in control of the city
of Sabratha, west of Tripoli,
which has seemed to go back
and forth between the two
camps the past week. Several
residents told The AP that
protesters set fire to a police
station, but then were dis-
persed. Anti-Gadhafi graffiti
"Down with the enemy of
freedom" and "Libya is free,
Gadhafi must leave" were
scrawled on some walls, but
residents were painting them
over.
Global efforts to halt Gad-
hafi's crackdown escalated on.
Monday.
In Washington, the Penta-
gon said it was moving some
naval and air forces closer to
Libya in case they are need-
ed. The U.S. has a regular mil-
itary presence in the Mediter-
ranean Sea and farther to the
south has two aircraft carriers
in the Persian Gulf area.
The U.S. Treasury Depart-
ment said that at least $30 bil-

lion in Libyan assets have been
frozen since President Barack
Obama imposed sanctions on
Libya last week.
France promised to send
two planes with humanitarian
aid the eastern opposition
stronghold city of Benghazi,
hoping to give it the monmen-
tum to oust Gadhafi. The aid
to included medicine and doc-
tors, would be the first direct
Western help for the uprising


that has taken control of the
entire eastern half of Libya.
French Prime Minister Fran-
cois Fillon said it was the start
of a "massive operation of
humanitarian support" for the
east and that Paris was study-
ing "all solutions" includ-
ing military options.
The EU slapped its own
arms embargo, visa ban and
other sanctions on Gadhafi's
regime, following sanctions


imposed by the U.S. and the
U.N. in the past week.
And Europe was also con-
sidering the imposition of a
no-fly zone over Libya to
prevent any air attacks by
the regime on rebellious cit-
izens.
Clinton met in Geneva with
foreign ministers from Britain,
France, Germany and Italy to
press for tough sanctions on
the Libyan government.


CASTRO: MIDDLE EAST UNREST IS EVIDENCE THAT US, NATO POLICY 'IN CRISIS'


FORMER Cuban leader Fidel
Castro has claimed the unrest in
the Middle East is evidence that
the policy of the United States and
NATO in the region has "gone
into a crisis".
In the latest edition of his
"Reflections", meditations on
international affairs released by
Mr Castro since leaving office in
2008, he said the "policy of plun-
dering" imposed by US and
NATO in the Middle East is spi-
ralling out of control.
"It has inevitably unravelled
with the high cost of grains, the
effects of which can be felt more
forcefully in the Arab countries
where, in spite of their huge
resources of oil, the shortage of
water, areas covered by desert and
the generalised poverty of the peo-
ple contrast with the enormous
resources coming from the oil pos-
sessed by the privileged sectors..
"While food prices triple, real


estate fortunes and the treasures
of the aristocratic minority reach
millions of millions of dollars," Mr
Castro said.
He said the Arab world, for the
most part Muslim in culture and
beliefs, has seen itself additionally
humiliated by the "imposition of
blood and fire by a state that was
not capable of fulfilling the basic
obligations that were part of their
origin, from the colonial order
existing up to the end of WW II,
by virtue of which the victorious
powers created the United
Nations organisation and imposed
world trade and economy.
"Thanks to the treason commit-
ted by Anwar El-Sadat at Camp
David, the Palestinian State has
not been able to exist, despite the
UN treaties of November 1947,
and Israel became a strong nuclear
power, an ally of the United States
and NATO.
"The US military-industrial


complex supplied Israel with tens
of billions of dollars every year as
well as to the very Arab States
that were submitted and being
humiliated by Israel.
"The genie has escaped from
the bottle and NATO doesn't
know how to control it," Mr Cas-
tro said.
He said it is obvious that civil
war is brewing in Libya and
agreed with the Nomura Bank of
Japan's statement that "If Libya
and Algeria suspend oil produc-
tion, prices could reach a maxi-
mum of more than $220 a barrel'
and OPEC's inactive capacity
would be reduced to 2.1 million
barrels per day, similar to levels
seen during the Gulf War and
when values touched 147 dollars a
barrel in 2008".
Mr Castro asked: "Who could
pay that price these days? What
would be the consequences in the
midst of the food crisis?"

AML SHARE

SUSPENSION

REMOVED
ByALISON LOWE
Business Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net
The Securities Commis-
sion yesterday lifted with
immediate effect the share
' suspension it had placed on
'trading in AML Foods'
stock on February 22,
cleaning the way for trad-
ing to resume on BISX
today at 10am.
That suspension of trad-
ing had been implemented
as part of an effort to
maintain an orderly mar-
ket in the food retail
group's shares, following
the turbulence created by
businessman Mark Fin-
layson's 'hostile takeover'
attempt.
The Securities Commis-
sion had, at the time it
imposed the suspension,
become concerned about

Revenue forecast off



by over 1% of GDP

* Former finance minister says Bahamas still in medium-
term 'unsustainable' position of public spending growing
faster than revenue
I Bahamas would 'be singing different tune' if not for $120m
one-off inflows, as otherwise deficit would still be growing


By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
The Government's half-
year Budget recurrent rev-
enue estimates were off by a
sum greater than 1 per cent
of gross domestic product
(GDP), a former finance
rginister said yesterday,
warning that the Bahamas
was still in the "unsustain-
able" position-of public
spending growing at a faster
rate than income.
James Smith, minister of
state for finance in the 2002-
2007 Christie administration,
told Tribune Business that
the Government "would
probably be singing a differ-


ent tune" had it not gained
$120.6 million in one-off,
unanticipated revenue injec-
tions during January from a


variety of private sector
transactions.'
Explaining that these one-
off payments had "muddied
the water a bit" when it
came to analysing precisely
what was going on with the
Government's finances, Mr
Smith said: "It's very diffi-
cult to get an idea as to
what's happening with the
size of the deficit if not for
the one-off payments........
"There was a feeling in
some areas that the Govern-
ment was being very aggres-
sive in-trying to achieve
some of the ratios it was

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor
Scotiabank (Bahamas)-
more than-$96 million swing
into the red during its 2010
financial year was almost
entirely caused by the one-

end, I was privy
to several inde-
pendent con-
versations concerning rising
oil and food costs. Earlier
this year, the Prime Minis-
ter spoke of the threat of
higher oil prices that are
expected by mid-year. The
current social unrest in the
Middle East, needless to say,
is exacerbating the upward
pressures on oil prices.
The common thread in all
the conversations was that
gasoline was $4.75 per gal-
lon, and this coupled with
rising food prices, higher
electricity costs and higher
taxes is a cause of concern
for Bahamians throughout
the country. However, our
official published indices are
surprisingly low; in fact,
many seem to argue that
they are absurdly low.
With inflation non-existent
(according to official
sources), wage growth will
correspondingly be non-exis-.
tent. Many economists pre-
dict that we are in a period
where real wages will decline
and disposable incomes will
come under greater pressure.
This is not a pleasant situa-
tion, but the reality is that as
most countries are going
through difficult times try-
ing to balance their national
budget, many individuals will
experience similar chal-
lenges.
In the coming months,
there will be much agitation
for increasing wages, and the
minimum wage in particular.
The real question is whether
we should be focusing on a
minimum wage or whether
it should be on a 'living
wage'.
Since July 1, 2000, the min-
imum wage for government
employees in the Bahamas
has been established at $4.45
per hour, or about $175 per
week. If my memory serves
me correctly, I believe that
the actual legislated rate is
$4 per hour or some $160
per week.,
Over the years, I have
found that very few persons
actually take time to under-
stand the issues involved in
establishing and maintaining
a minimum wage policy. The
arguments in favour of a
minimum wage seem just as
strong as those against it.


Defining a living wage






is the bare minimum


Article
I recently came across a
March 13, 2007, .article by
Lisa Smith, a writer for
Investopedia.Com, entitled
Exploring the Minimum
Wage, which I kept in my
archives. This article is an
excellent and extremely well
written, easy to read, discus-
sion that I regard as a 'must
read' on the topic and
reprint below:
"The International Labour
Office in Geneva, Switzer-
land, reports that some 90
per cent of countries around
the world have legislation
supporting a minimum wage.
The minimum wage in coun-
tries that rank within the
lowest 20 per cent of the pay
scale is less than $2 per .day,
or about $57 per month. The
minimum wage in the coun-
tries that represent the high-
* est 20 per cent of the pay
scale is about $40 per day,
or about $1,185 per month.
"Despite paying one of the
highest minimum wages in
the world, the minimum
wage is a perpetual hot pota-
to among politicians in the
United States. The last time
the minimum wage was fed-
erally increased in the Unit-
ed States was 1997. Propo-
nents of an increase argue
that the cost of living has
risen more than 25 per cent
since then. Since the mini-
mum wage is not indexed to
inflation, it does not system-
atically increase in propor-
tion to changes in costs of
living.
Arguments in Favour
"Those in favour of
increasifig the minimum
wage argue that such,an
increaselifts people out of
poverty, helps low income
families make ends meet and
narrows the gap between the
rich and poor. That last argu-

Focus

. .".. .... ..... ........ ..... .... --.
S ,,- }; :-,.,r'


ment is underscored by the
exorbitant salaries earned by
chief executives and other
corporate titans, who are
also the same people gener-
ally arguing against an
increase in the minimum
wage. The idea of an
increase also has a strong
populist appeal, particularly
in a nation where discussions
about social class, when they
are held at all, are nearly
always framed in terms of
the rich versus the poor."
Arguments Against
"On the other side of the
discussion is the argument
that increasing the minimum
wage hurts small businesses,
squeezes profit .margins,
leads to inflation, encourages
employers to downsize their
staff and increases the cost
of goods to the end con-
sumer. Interestingly, the
arguments .against an
increase rarely focus on the
fact that a good portion of
states already mandate a
wage that is higher than the
federal minimum wage."
By the Numbers
'"Economically speaking,
the theory of supply and
demand suggests that the
imposition of an artificial val-
ue on wages that is higher
than the value that would be


al


..-
E'9I


dictated in a free-market sys-
tem creates an inefficient
market and leads to unem-
ployment. The inefficiency
occurs when there are a
greater number of workers
that want the higher paying
jobs than there are employ-
ers willing to pay the higher
wages. Critics disagree.
"What is generally agreed
upon by all parties is that the
number of individuals rely-
ing on the minimum wage in
the United States is less than
5 per cent. However, this sta-
tistic is largely ignored in
favor of citations regarding
the number of people that
live in poverty. Keep in mind
that earning more than the
minimum wage does not
necessarily mean that one is
not living in poverty.
According to estimates from
the CIA World Fact Book,
some 13 per cent of the US
population lives in poverty
that is 37 million people.
"To put this in perspec-
tive, the federal poverty lev-
el for a working adult was
$9,800 in-2006, according to
the United States Depart-
.ment of Health and Human
Services. At $5.25 per hour,
a minimum wage workers
earns $10,920 per year,
which is already greater than
the federally determined
poverty level. If the work-


er's pay jumps to $7.25, year-
ly earnings would move to
$15,080 per year for a 40-
hour week. From a mathe-
matical and logical perspec-
tive, increasing the minimum
wage does not lift anyone
out of poverty because the
prior minimum wage already
paid more than the official
poverty rate.
"The numbers would seem
to put the minimum wage
argument to rest, but only
because of the misaligned
focus on the phrase 'mini-
mum wage'. When referring
to that phrase, many people
actually seem to be seeking a
living wage, which is gener-
ally defined as the amount
required to raise a family on
a single wage-earner's salary.
"Pegging that number to
the poverty rate for a family
of four moves the bar to
$20,000 per year. Looking at
the argument from this per-
spective, neither the current'
minimum wage nor the pro-
posed increased wage will
provide a living wage. Even
if an increase would move
the salary of every worker
in the country to this level, it
would make little difference
in the statistical comparison
of the earnings of the aver-
age worker to those of .the
highest-paid chief execu-
tives."
No Easy Answers
What is the solution to the
minimum wage/living wage
issue? Statistics can be gath-
ered to support both sides of
the argument. While there
are no easy answers, a good
first step is to frame the
debate in realistic terms.
Referring to the minimum
wage as a wage designed to
support a family confuses the
issue. Families need a living
wage, not a minimum wage.
With that said, generally,
working at a fast food restau-
rant or the local gas station is
not a career. These are jobs
designed to help entry-level
workers join the workforce,
not to support the (long
term) financial needs of a
family.
On the core issue of mini-
mum wage itself, political
wrangling is unlikely to
result in a real solution. A
more practical solution is to


join the workforce at the low
end of the wage scale, build
your skills, get an education
and move up the ladder to
a better-paying job just as
members of the workforce
have done for generations.
Conclusion
The reality is that a high
minimum wage for a service-
driven economy such as the
Bahamas leads to concerns
about pricing ourselves out
of the market. Expensive
labour is one thing...but
expensive and unproductive
labour is a recipe for total
disaster.
Therefore, the 'automatic
cost of living adjustment'
argument can only be con-
templated if it is associated
with measurable increases in
productivity. Really, the
need is to strive for service
excellence in a service-dri-
ven economy.
Perhaps a more practical
way to approach this whole
issue is to consider the 'living
wage' approach. What is a
reasonable 'living wage' (the
amount required to raise a
family on a single wage-earn-
er's salary) for the Bahamas?
Maybe this is a statistic we
should 'define for the
Bahamas and try to address.
We can address this by
examining not just wages but
also including other means
of social/government inter-
vention, and measuring any
shortfall. For example, if we
determine that the living
wage is, say, $15,000 per
annum (I have no clue what
this number is or should
be.. .it can be calculated), we
ought to look at look at
wages and other forms of
government assistance being
delivered, such as food pro-
grammes, rent assistance, in
order to get a true picture of
the 'real' situation.
I would argue that a living
wage could provide more
insight to the challenges that
the 'man on the street' faces,
especially in these trying I
times.

Education targeted



for securities dealers


By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
mreynolds@tribunemedia.net

CONTINUING educa-
tion requirements for
licensed Bahamas-based
securities dealers were urged
yesterday, the Bahamas
Institute of Chartered
Accountants (BICA) presi-
dent saying this nation was
one of the few that did not
have such stipulations.
Proposed regulations
designed to boost confi-
dence and investment in
Bahamian and international
markets were divulged by
industry professionals at a
seminar held by the
Bahamas Association of
Securities Dealers (BASD).
Around 30 of the 554
Securities Commission reg-
istrants in the Bahamas
gathered at the British Colo-
nial Hilton and heard about
developments in the indus-
try to ensure Bahamian
traders operate at leading
industry standards.
Ongoing education pro-
grammes for licensed bro-
kers and securities invest-
ment advisers (SIAs) was
called for by BASD board
secretary, and BICA presi-
dent, Reece Chipman, as
well as sales training, estab-
lished codes of conduct and
greater supervision of
trades.
However, as just a frac-
tion of the country's 554 reg-
istrants were present, Mr
Chipman said there was
much work to do in order
to reach out to all those
operating in the Bahamian
industry.


ZHIVARGO LAING


Mr Chipman said the
Bahamas was the only coun-
try that does not require
some kind of ongoing edu-
cation for licensed securities
dealers, and therefore needs
to put these procedures in
place.
And. as the. economy
shows slow signs of recov-
ery, everyone involved in
securities trading should be
informed and educated
about the product they are
selling, and take responsi-
bility for the sale of those
products.

Offshore
Around 90 per cent of
Bahamiafi broker/dealers
and SIAs operate offshore
accounts, and therefore
Bahamian traders should be
required to meet interna-
tional standards foreign
clients would expect, Mr
Chipman said.
"We have to be more
competitive," he said. "We
have to get out there, and
it's a hustle now because
we're trickling out of this
recessionary period, so we
need to be prepared for
what's to come."
fie added: "We should
have a more vibrant securi-


- = ..j -

ties community where
there's more education,
more knowledge being
shared, more issues being
talked about and represent-
ed, so once we get into
reviewing exposure drafts or
the Acts or the regulations,
we can go together to rep-
resent the industry."
Mr Chipman also dis-
cussed the Association's
plans to collect and provide
statistical data that is cur-
.rently lacking.
Director of Colina Hold-
ings (Bahamas), Anthony
Ferguson encouraged oth-
ers to get involved in the
BASD to strengthen indus-
try standards and economic
growth.
"A body like this will
speak for and on behalf of
the industry, whether it's
domestic or international,"
he said. "When one of us in
here fails, the whole industry
does, and we as a body have
to work together to make
sure the legislation is robust
and not stifling."
Additional speakers at the
forum included Minister of
State for Finance, Zhivargo
Laing; chief executive and
executive director of the
Bahamas Financial Services
Board, Wendy Warren; and
chairman of the Securities
Commission of the
Bahamas, Philip Stubbs.
Mr Stubbs spoke about
the Commission's work to
improve the security of cap-
ital markets, strengthen con-
fidence -and growth in
Bahamian markets, and to
develop a draft takeover
code expected to be put out
for consultation next month.


Grant Thornton (Bahamas) partners have
paid a courtesy call on Public Hospital
Authority (PHA) chairman, Veta Brown,
and managing director, Herbert Brown, at
the latter's corporate offices in Centreville.
Grant Thornton serves as the indepen-
dent auditors of PHA, and managing part-
ner, Paul Andy Gomez, and partner-in-
charge of assurance and fraud investigations,
Kendrick K. Christie, took the opportunity
to discuss relevant audit issues, including
internal controls and corporate governance.

Management

The Public Hospital Authority is respon-
sible for the management of the three gov-
ernment-owned hospitals, namely the
Princess Margaret Hospital and the Sandi-
lands Rehabilitation Centre in Nassau, and
the Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport.
In addition to its mandate for public hos-
pitals, the PHA is also responsible for the
management and development of other
areas of the public sector health services


system, such as the National Emergency
Medical Services (NEMS), the Bahamas
National Drug Agency (BNDA) and the
Materials Management Directorate (MMD).
The community health services in Grand
Bahama, together with the Rand Memorial
Hospital, form a local health system, which
is called the Grand Bahama Health System.
Mr Gomez said the PHA performs a vital
role in the physical and mental development
of the Bahamas, overseeing the provision
of medical services to patients of every eco-
nomic and social status.
He added that the Grant Thornton part-
ners were pleased that the significant invest-
ment in audit risk assessment tools and tech-
nology over the last five years places it in a
unique position to audit entities such as
PHA that have complex operations.
Grant Thornton (Bahamas) is a part of
Grant Thornton International (GTI), and
is among the top seven international
accounting and consulting organizations in
the world, with 585 offices in 110 countries,
2,600 partners, and 30,000 employees world-
wide.


Bimini Bay obtains


new brand partner

FROM page 1B

yesterday in a release issued by RockResorts, a subsidiary of
Vail Resorts. Eleven of Vail Resorts' 27 properties in US,
Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, St Lucia and Costa Rica
are RockResorts at present.
In 2005,-Gerardo Capo, chairman of the Capo Group,
which owns the Bimini Bay Resort and Marina, revealed that
the company had signed a management agreement with
Conrad Hotels, a Hilton Hotels luxury brand, to operate and
manage the Bimini Bay Resort.
It is not clear what came.of this agreement and how the
decision to shift the operation/management of the resort to
RockResorts was reached. Rafael Reyes, president of RAV
Bahamas Ltd, a subsidiary of the Capo Group, who speaks
on behalf of Bimini Bay Resort and Marina, could not be
reached up to press time yesterday.
In the release issued by RockResorts, Mr Reyes is quot-
ed as saying that the new agreement with the hotel compa-
ny "represents a new chapter for our homeowners, for our
guests and for our community and the island of Bimini".
"As we look ahead to the future with plans to improve the
guest experience and the homeowner experience, it was
critical to us to select the right partner. RockResorts bring
the perfect combination of experience in the luxury resort
industry and environmental leadership," he said.

Development
The Capo Group has come under fire in previous years
for alleged destruction of what have been deemed envi-
ronmentally sensitive areas in Bimini as it proceeds with the
development of the resort, but it has frequently and vehe-
mently denied such claims.
RockResorts' release on its impending takeover of man-
agerial control at the property stressed the natural envi-
ronment as a focusas it moves ahead in Bimini.
RockResorts has become "known for its progressive envi-
ronmental programs, as well as its welcoming and friendly
guest service, exquisite spas and superb cuisine", said the
statement.
"We will-bring our core values of environmental stew-
ardship and community involvement that are integral to
our RockResorts Echo corporate responsibility program
to Bimini Bay Resort and Marina," added Julie Klein, direc-
tor of environmental affairs for RockResorts.
The implementation of "industry leading environmental
initiatives", at Bimini Bay Resort and Marina are promised,
such as a 'Water on the Rocks' program that eliminates
nearly all the plastic water bottle usage by guests, a volun-
tary guest donation program for local environmental pro-
jects, a volunteer vacation program called 'Give and Get-
away', a progressive sustainable cuisine programme, a green
guest room programme, and the soon-to-be launched 'Go
Green, Get Green' meeting and event program.
In addition to the existing hotel, the Bimini Bay Resort
and Marina presently features three restaurants, a shop-
ping village, children's activity centre, two outdoor pools and
tennis courts.
Alongside the development of the boutique hotel, to
open in 2014, further plans will see an on-site casino devel-
oped.

'Fast becoming


over-burdened


with taxation'

those households without cable TV.
Commenting on the 'communications industry tax' propos-
al, the BISX-listed companies said: "The companies do not
support this recommendation because the industry has seen a
tremendous increase in taxing regimes within recent times, viz
the introduction of URCA's taxes and government taxes; in
addition to the Government business licence taxes.
"The result is that the industry is fast becoming over bur-
dened with taxes, and stakeholders simply cannot afford the
implementation of another taxing regime."
As for the pay-TV subscription levy, Cable Bahamas added:
"The companies do not support this recommendation because
a segment of the population would not be paying the taxes asso-
ciated with this initiative, as every household in the Bahamas
does not have cable services.
"Also, such an initiative would be exceedingly difficult to
manage especially considering the effects o delinquent accounts
and account terminations where outstanding balances are left.
Additionally, this can become quite burdensome and is tar-
geting only a section of the.population, not all those who would
be receiving the PSB broadcast."
While tax breaks were a possible source of funding, and
donations and endowments also viable, Cable Bahamas said the
latter option was heavily influenced by the state of the Bahami-
an economy, which impacted "reliability and consistency".
"The companies support URCA's opinion that revenue
gains from these sales are unlikely to. be substantial," Cable
Bahamas said.
It advocated a television licence fee as the best financing form
for ZNS as a PSB, and added: "The companies recognize that
this can be a viable source of additional funding, .and would
even suggest a structure similar to which has been used in oth-
er Caribbean jurisdictions.
"In addition to government appropriation, the companies feel
that a model which combines a licence fee regime, advertising
and sponsorship would be the best fit for ZNS, and agrees
with URCA that it may be appropriate to limit the amount of
advertising carried by ZNS."
While backing the notion that "local broadcasting should be
streamlined to offer more local content covering all aspects of
Bahamian life and culture", Cable Bahamas said that desig-
nating ZNS as a PSB would not be the answer.
"Historically, PSB structures were designed to inform, edu-
cate and entertain. Today, however, the cold truth is that these
objectives have become challenging to achieve in markets that
are advanced in technological entertainment," the BISX-listed
company warned. Competition is no longer local but global,
with insurmountable channels accessible through broadband
Internet and other great technological advancements such that
audience appeal (which translates into funding) for PSB mod-
els has now dwindled in many countries and, in particular, the
Caribbean region.
"The late 1990s saw the privatization of four public service
models in the Caribbean: Jamaica, Dominica, St Kitts & Nevis
and Trinidad & Tobago, and the sizeable downsizing of the
Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation in Barbados."
As a result, Cable Bahamas concluded: "The companies are
concerned that in a small island state such as this, it may not be
feasible to create a model where there is tle or no govern-
mental involvement in the runniiig and fiihctioning' of the
broadcasting network.,
"The companies envisage a model which partners with the
Government of the Bahamas, and with the people of the
Bahamas, with a mandate to meet the cultural, educational,
informational and economic needs of the people based on
interest and not profit.
"Ideally, a quasi-PSB model, with government appropriation
initially being at its maximum level and a 10-year plan to grad-
ually reduce these levels to a minimum and, ultimately, replac-
ing the appropriations with other sources of funding."

looking at in the short-term." Whether
or not the Bahamas was meeting tar-
gets for reductions in the fiscal deficit,
the national debt-to-gross domestic
product (GDP) ratio, how much it was
off, and comparisons to earlier targets
could not be determined via what was
presented in the mid-year Budget, the
former finance minister said.
"I do know the revenue performance
has still been relatively sluggish," Mr
Smith told Tribune Business, "and
without the unanticipated revenue we
would probably be singing a different
tune. The question going forward is if
the unexpected, unanticipated revenue
inflows do not happen, where are we?
These are the issues."
Pointed to the fact that the Govern-
ment's recurrent revenues were $84.3
million behind 2010-2011 Budget pro-
jections for the six months between
July 1-December 31, 2010, Mr Smith
replied: "That's a little over 1 per cent
of gross domestic product. In terms of,
the deficit, we're adding to it, rather
than subtracting from it. It means
there's still some work to be done in
turning our fiscal affairs around."
Adding that $95.7 million in divi-
dends received by the Government
from the Bahamas Telecommunica-
tions Company (BTC) in 2009 might
also have to be removed from the com-
parison equation, since these sums
would never be repeated given the
impending privatization and sale of a 51
per cent stake to Cable & Wireless
Communications (CWC), Mr Smith
reiterated: "There are still some exist-
ing and continuing challenges with the
side of things, given that the revenue
increases forecast are not coming for-
ward as rapidly as expenditure growth
in the medium-term."
Describing this as an "unsustainable
position", Mr Smith said the Govern-
ment might need to adjust its debt-to-
GDP and fiscal deficit targets, and the


Revenue forecast off




by over 1.% of GDP


mechanisms for achieving its objec-
tives with these two indicators.
He also urged the Government to
conduct an exercise to determine
whether the tax increases in the 2010-
2011 Budget had yielded the desired
result, in terms of greater tax revenues
for the Public Treasury.
Identifying the automobile industry
as one such sector ripe for this study,
Mr Smith said it would test elasticities,
"and if you're not getting an increase as
intended, you may have to revisit that".
In the short-term, the former finance
minister said an improvement in the
Government's finances was dependent
on the private sector and an "uptick" in
economic activity.
"Until that happens, it will be a
struggle keeping things together," Mr
Smith said. Asked about the signifi-
cance of the current deficit and debt-to-
GDP ratios, he added: "They have sig-
nificance in terms of uncertainty like
we're going through now.
"If there is an urgent need to go to
the market for money we're in a hur-
ricane zone, and God forbid there is an
unexpected event but we'd need some
headroom to make a soft landing for
the economy. We're using up that
headroom to deal with unexpected
events rapidly, and I suspect the Gov-
ernment is aware of that."
Unveiling his Mid-Year Budget
statement in the House of Assembly,
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham
blamed "weaker than expected eco-
nomic performance in the first half and


continuing administrative weakness-
es" for the Government's failure to hit
its $668.4 million recurrent revenue
target for the July 1-December 31,
2010, period. The total revenue figure,
instead, came in at $584.1 million.
"The principal shortfalls in forecast-
ed revenue occurred in respect of
import duties and export duties, at
$30.5 million, and Stamp Tax at $43.1
million," Mr Ingraham said. "The latter
largely reflected Stamp Tax weakness
in respect of real property transactions
over $250,000."
The Government's salvation this fis-.
cal year, though, will be the one-off
revenue boosts it receives from taxes
collected on major commercial trans-
actions. Apart from the $217 million
(purchase price and Stamp Tax) set to
be received from the Bahamas
Telecommunications Company's BTC)
privatization (possible more if there is
surplus net cash at closing), further
one-off deals have already taken place.
The Prime Minister confirmed in the
House .of Assembly yesterday that
$120.6 million in one-off revenues were
received in January 2011, including
$78.9 million generated by Buckeye.
Partners' $1.36 billion acquisition of
the Bahamas Oil Refining Company
(BORCO); $37.4 million from Baha
Mar's Stamp Tax and Gaming tax pay-
ments; and $4.3 million of a total $5.8
million in fees held by the Utilities
Regulation & Competition Authority
(URCA) were remitted to the Gov-
ernment.

assets rose by 362 per cent, or more than tripled to $104.946
million compared to $29.012 million a rise of more than $75
million.
The $200 million-plus syndicated loan advanced by the
Scotiabank-led consortium to Baha Mar was rarely out of the
news last year, as it represented an obstacle to the Chinese
financing of the $2.6 billion resort project proceeding until.
the two parties were able to thrash out a settlement in
negotiations in New York.
The deal resulted in a 'debt-for-equity' swap, with Sco-
tiabank (Bahamas) taking an equity stake in the Baha Mar
project in return for accepting a repayment that was less than
the full amount owed.
The bank will now be hoping that the work done by Baha
Mar and China State Construction will result in the creation
of a profitable world-class destination resort facility that
sees Scotiabank earn a return on its equity, and gets its
money back. At the moment, given that Baha Mar has only
just started construction, the value of that equity stake is
effectively zero, hence the writedown.
Robert Sands, Baha Mar's vice-president of external and
government affairs, last year said Baha Mar was now 88 per
cent owned by the Izmirlian family, led by Sarkis Izmirilan,
with ScotiQabank having taken a 12 per cent minority inter-
est as a result of negotiations with Baha Mar over the out-
standing $200 million debt it owed. The China State Con-
struction and Engineering Corporation has invested $150
million in "non-convertible" preference shares in the project.
Elsewhere, Scotiabank (Bahamas) operating income
dropped by 6.5 per cent in 2010 to $142.683 million, com-
pared to $152.676 million the previous year. This was large-
ly due to a more than $19 million fall-in interest income to
$126.454 million, compared to $145.644 million, a drop of
13.2 per cent.

the Bahamas, the Corporation agreeing that ZNS needed
continual taxpayer funding "for the foreseeable future".
Although the sums due to NIB and the BCB employee
pension fund were not disclosed, when combined with the
debt the BCB also owes to the Bahamas Electricity Cor-
poration (BEC), the picture is one where government-agen-
cies have large receivables and payables sums lingering on
their balance sheets that are due to other publicly-owned
agencies, with little effort being made to collect or settle
these.
Describing the 2010-2011 Budget's provision of $4.25 mil-
lion in taxpayer funding for the BCB as "too low", its
response to URCA said: "In 2010, the Corporation's adver-
tising revenue was $5.337 million, with expenditures of
$15.016 million.
"The Government provided a subsidy of $8.867 million in
2010. This was reduced to $4.25 million in 2011. The Cor-
poration, in its efforts to reduce costs, underwent a reor-
ganisation that saw a 35 per cent reduction in staff.
"The Corporation also has an urgent need to service a
number of outstanding, dated financial obligations inclusive
of the Performing Rights Society, National Insurance, the
Bahamas Electricity Corporation and its employee pen-
sion fund."
BCB's assertion that ongoing taxpayer support will be
required to fund ZNS's operations is no surprise, given that
URCA had reached the same conclusion even if it was to be
transformed into a PSB broadcaster.
*The 50 per cent cut to the BCB's taxpayer subsidy, URCA
revealed previously, placed it "at the bottom end of the
scale globally" when it came to financial support from the
public, as ZNS's per capital financing had fallen from $28 per
person to $14 per resident.
Only the US had a lower er capital ratio for financing
public service broadcasters, according to the URCA bench-
marking study. f
Acknowledging that countries with larger populations
typically had more money available to finance PSB-style
operations, URCA said that even on a per capital basis,
"'the level of public support for PSB in the Bahamas is low
by international standards.
"The grant received by ZNS in 2009-2010 was equiva-
lent to around $28 per person. This puts ZNS at the low end
of per-capita funding in comparison with the 18 countries
examined in a study conducted for CBC in Canada, among
a tranche of countries that spend around $15-$30 perfiead."
According to URCA, numerous European countries
spent around $80-$110 per capital on PSB, while a middle
tranche of nations spent $40-$60 per head.
"The reduced spend on ZNS in 2010-2011, of $14 per
person, ppts the Bahamas at the bottom end of the scale,
ahead of only the US, which is an outlier, as the market is
sufficiently large for the private sector networks to pro-
vide a range of high-quality PSB-like programming," URCA
said. The BCB agreed with. much of URCA's recommen-
dations, saying: "A new governance structure is critical to
ensure the transformation of the BCB into an independent
public service broadcaster."
It added that an internal BCB document, entitled Tran-
sitioning to a Public Broadcaster, had recommended that
ZNS's political and editorial independence be guaranteed by
statute, and that the state-owned broadcaster be accountable
to Parliament rather than the Cabinet. Funding should also
be guaranteed by legislation, with a separation between
Board and management.
"We would wish to emphasis the value of a funding
mechanism that minimises political influence and allows
broadcasters to plan over medium-term horizons," the BCB
added. We do appreciate that given the funding options
available, the mixed funding model in which ZNS receives
a grant from Parliament and is allowed to generate income
from advertising and sponsorship is the best possible com-
promise."
URCA's analysis had also suggested that ZNS's on-air
advertising rates "may be below market levels". While this
was beneficial to small Bahamian businesses, who might
not otherwise be able to afford TV advertising, URCA said
it also meant that ZNS was not maximising its commercial
and advertising revenues, while the market for private
broadcasters was distorted meaning they did not generate
as much advertising revenue as they could.
"URCA believes there is sufficient evidence to indicate
that ZNS may be selling advertising at prices below market
rates across its TV and radio services," the communica-
tions sector regulator said.
"Certainly, the published ratecard has not responded to
market fluctuations over the last five years. It should not be
ZNS's job to subsidize advertising for small businesses -
these businesses should still be able to afford adverts around
programmes with smaller audiences, leaving the most pop-
ular programmes to larger companies that can afford high-
er advertising prices.
"URCA recommends that ZNS's advertising ratecard be
reviewed on a frequent basis to reflect market conditions,
and should be allowed to rise to the extent that market
forces permit. ZNS's management should be free to amend
its ratecard without the need for Ministerial review or
approval."
The BCB was again in agreement, its response to URCA
stating: "We believe that ZNS should sell advertising at
full market rates because as the public service broadcaster


receiving a Parliamentary grant and generating advertis-
ing, we should not be seen to be under-cutting the mar-
ket."
As for generating new revenue streams through exploit-
ing its intellectual property, ZNS said: "The Corporation is
always interested in alternative revenue streams. Exploita-
tion of intellectual property in secondary markets is possi-
ble, but at the moment not well organised, and is unlikely to
generate significant "revenue in the near term. The Corpo-
ration is also challenged in that most of its analog material
remains in an analog format."

However, Mr Finlayson
yesterday formally withdrew
his $12 million 'hostile
takeover' bid to acquire a
51 per cent majority stake
in AML Foods, after the
Associated Bahamian Dis-
tillers and Brewers
(ABDAB) Board decided
the company's shareholders
would gain better returns
from City Markets' organic
expansion instead.
The suspension had
blocked Mr Finlayson's
attempts to acquire any
more of AML's shares on
the open market during the
week-long period it was in
place.
Mr Finlayson disagreed


MARK FINLAYSON


with the decision on the part
of the Securities Commis-
sion, accusing them of "act-
ing outside the law" by
"seeking to impose guide-
lines which, at the moment,
have no basis in law."
The Securities Commis-
sion is working towards the


passing of legislation which
would include a Takeover
Code governing how bids
for other companies, such as
that by Mr Finlayson, should
be conducted. However, this
has yet to be released for
consultation.
In the meantime, the
Securities Commission
allegedly had concerns when
it implemented the suspen-
sion about the failure of Mr
Finlayson and his Trans-
Island Traders vehicle to
produce a Bid Circular, a
document telling AML
Foods shareholders of the
price, terms and conditions
of his offer for 51 per cent of
the shares, more than three*
weeks after first announc-
ing the intention to mount
the bid.
And the regulator was
understood to be concerned


about statements such as the
one in which Mr Finlayson
told Tribune Business he
had 20 per cent of AML
Foods' shares "locked up",
despite producing no evi-
dence to this effect.
These, and other com-
ments by the Trans-Island
and AML Foods sides, dis-
rupted the market in the lat-
ter's shares and caused
uncertainty/confusion
among its shareholders, so
the Securities Commission
moved to maintain an order-
ly market via the share sus-
pension.
The release advising of
the reinstituting of trading
in AML Foods suggested
that any "questions" regard-
ing the decision can be
directed to the Secretary of
the Commission.


Fewer people sign contracts to buy homes in Jan.


DEREK KRAVITZ,
AP Real Estate Writer
WASHINGTON


Fewer Americans signed
contracts to buy homes in
January, the latest evidence
that the housing market is
struggling to rise above
depressed levels.
The National Association
of Realtors says its index of
sales agreements for previ-
ously occupied homes fell 2.8
percent last month to a read-
ing of 88.9, the second straight
monthly decline.
The reading was -higher
than the 75.9 reading from
June, the low point since the
housing bust. But it's below
100, which is considered a
healthy level. The last time it
reached that point was in
April, the final month people
could qualify for a home-buy-
ing tax credit.
Sales of previously owned
homes fell last year to the
lowest level in 13 years. Econ-
omists say it will be years
before the housing market
fully recovers. High unem-
ployment, strict lending stan-
dards and a record number of
foreclosures are deterring
potential buyers,' who fear
home prices haven't reached
the bottom.
Contract signing of previ-
ously owned homes are usu-
ally a good indicator of where
the housing market is head-
ing. That's because there's
usually a one- to two-month
lag between a sales contract
and a completed deal.
Steven Wood, chief econo-
mist for Insight Economics,
said the tax' credits have
pulled home sales on a
"roller-coaster ride over the
past two years" and that sales
have not yet found a steady
level.
Jennifer Lee, senior econo-
mist for BMO Capital Mar-
kets, said the dismal contract
numbers in January is "clear-
ly bad news" for the nation's
housing industry.
"And we can't blame
weather as three of the four
regions saw a decline," she
said.
The Realtors group had
reported a modest 2 percent
increase in December, which
would have marked the fifth
such uptick in the- previous six
months. But the trade ass6ci-
ation, which began tracking
contract signing of homes in
2001, revised its figures .to
show that signing actually fell
in December from November
by nearly 3.2 percent.
The more than 5 percent
swing has raised some con-
cerns among analysts that the
data provided by the Real-
tors' group may have flaws.
It follows comments from
CoreLogic, a private real-
estate data firm in Santa Ana,
California, that the Realtors
annual numbers have been,
too high. The Realtors have
said they are reviewing their
2010 yearly estimate.
"Anytime you go from a
sizable positive number to a
sizable negative number, like
it did in January, it gets peo-
ple thinking," said Mark Vit-
ner, senior economist with
Wells Fargo Securities. "Vir-
tually every housing report in
January was negative and this
was one of the few positive
reports we saw and now it
looks like it was wrong."
Paul Bishop, vice president
of research at the Realtors


BUSINESS

association, said preli
figures released by th
group are revised each
to reflect changing i
conditions.
"All economic d
revised at some p
another and that in
itself is not unusual,"


"We rely on the latest infor-
mation we have and as that
Information comes in, we'll
update our numbers."
Putting a number on how
many people signed contracts
to buy homes is not an exact
science. Between the time a
potential homebuyer agrees
to purchase a home anfd the
paperwork is signed, financing
can fall apart and buyers can
pull out. Following the hous-
ing bust, an increasing num-
ber of home deals have been'
scuttled after buyers have
balked at lengthy wait peri-
ods for purchase agreements
or appraisals or when lenders
iminary have demanded larger down
ie trade payments.

point or It could also affect how
and of companies that rely on those
he said. numbers, such as home


improvement stores, use the
reports for things like how
many people to hire and
where 'to expand.
Prices and sales of previ-
ously occupied homes have
painted a grim picture of that
portion of the housing mar-
ket, which historically
accounts for roughly 85 per-
cent of home sales.
Housing prices in all but
one of the 20 cities tracked
by the Standard &
Poor's/Case Shiller index fell
in December from Novem-
ber. Eleven of the markets -
stretching from Seattle to
Miami hit their lowest
point since the housing bub-
ble burst in 2006 and 2007.
Sales of previously occu-
pied homes rose slightly last
month. But the seasonally
adjusted annual pace of 5.36
million is still far below the 6
million homes a year needed
to maintain a healthy market.

CAIRO Libya's oil chief said pro-
duction had been cut by around 50 per-
cent, and argued it was "safe" for for-
eign oil workers to return after a mass
exodus sparked by Moammar Gadhafi's
increasingly violent campaign to retain
control of the country.
The assurances by Shukri Ghanem,
the head of the state-run National Oil
Co. and Libya's de facto oil minister,
came as uncertainty swirled about the
state of the OPEC member's production
and who was actually in control of the
brunt of the nation's oil. Libya sits atop
Africa's largest proven reserves.

BJEIJING China's leadership is
promising to steer the economy in a new
direction in its blueprint for the next five
years that would empower consumers
and narrow a yawning wealth gap but
require politically contentious reforms.

LONDON Stabilizing oil prices fol-
lowing reports that Libyan rebels are
willing to restart crude exports helped
ease market concerns that the global
recovery would be brought to a standstill
by sky-high energy costs.
Crude oil traded at about $98 a barrel
on the New York Mercantile Exchange,
while the Brent rate in London fetched
around $112 a barrel.
At the height of the markets' concerns
over Libya last week, New York crude
had risen over $102 a barrel and Brent
had advanced towards $120.
The decline in oil prices helped boost
sentiment in Europe!s stock markets.
- Germany's DAX closed up 1.2 per-
cent while th6 CAC-40 in Paris rose 1
percent.
The FTSE 100 index of leading British
shares ended 0.1 percent lower after
British banking giant HSBC disappoint-
ed investors by warning that new capital
rules would hurt earnings this year.
HSBC shares dropped almost 5 percent,
dragging down the overall British index.

for weeks and shows no signs of abat-
ing.

LONDON Prices in the 17 coun-
tries that use the euro rose 2.3 percent in
.January, slightly slower than initially esti-
mated but still the fastest rate in more

METALS PRICES INCREASE ON


POSITIVE SIGNS FOR ECONOMY
NEW YORK

Prices rose Monday for metals used in manufacturing as
new reports suggested the U.S. economy is improving. Sil-
ver, palladium, platinum and copper all settled higher.
The gains are based on-a Commerce Department report
that says consumer incomes rose last month by-the, largest
amount in nearly two years, thanks partly to a tax cut. How-
ever, Americans still are being careful about their spending.
Also, a measure of business strength in the Chicago area
hit the highest level since July 1988. The Chicago Business
Barometer showed more new orders coming in, improving
employment and order backlogs.
The developments left many traders more confident about
economic growth' despite ongoifig clashes in the oil-rich
regions of Middle East and North Africa. "Many have tak-
en the view,that ... higher oil prices will likely lead to tem-
pered economic recovery instead of a total derailment of
economic recovery," CPM Group analyst Carlos Sanchez
said.F
Silver, platinum, palladium and copper are used in man-
ufacturing goods including electronics, housing materials
and automobiles.

Delivery

Silver for May delivery rose 89.7 cents to settle at $33.82
an ounce.
In other metals contracts, March copper added 4.2 cents
to settle at $4.478 a pound, June palladium gained $12 to
.$799.60 an ounce, April platinum rose $5.80 to $1,809.20 an
ounce and April gold added 60 cents to $1,409.90 an ounce.
Oil prices, meanwhile, settled slightly lower as government
and industry officials reported that Libya is still exporting
some crude and that leader Moammar Gadhafi has lost
control of many of the country's oil fields.
Benchmark oil for March delivery fell 91 cents to settle at
$96.97 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.
In other Nymex trading in March contracts, heating oil fell
0.66 cent to settle at $2.9389 per gallon, gasoline lost 1.59
cents to $2.8927 per gallon and natural gas added 3.2 cents
to $4.037 per 1,000 cubic feet. Grains and beans were mixed.
In May contracts, wheat rose 5.75 cents to settle at $8.17 a
bushel, corn gained 9 cents to $7.31 a bushel and soybeans
fell 10.25 cents to $13.6475 a bushel.

GOP HOPEFULS CHEER FORising fuel price costs shadow on

A SPENDING SHOWDOWN isig fuelprice casts shadow on


PHILIP ELLIOTT,
Associated Press
WASHINGTON
Easy for them to say: Cut
spending, no matter what.
Don't let the government bor-
row any more. Shut it down if
you have to. -
While the cast of potential I
White House contenders tells .
Congress to get tough, draw- -
ing lines in the sand is risky ,
for lawmakers who have to
live with the consequences. .
Many remember what hap-
pened more than two years IN
ago when House conservatives BUSINES
bolted from their Republican ...... ...................................
president and leadership to
defeat a $700 billion rescue bill for the nation's financial system.
The Dow Jones industrials plunged 777 points, the most ever for
a single day. Lawmakers had second thoughts, and four days lat-
er 58 of them, including 25 Republicans, switched sides to pass
it.
Many Republicans paid a huge political price, losing re-elec-
tion last year as furious tea partyers made how lawmakers
voted on the bank bailout the single biggest litmus test of their
conservatism.
However dangerous such brinksmanship is for lawmakers -
and the country it offers White House hopefuls the oppor-
tunity to criticize Washington spending while portraying them-
selves as the commonsense alternatives.
"We had a partial government shutdown in Minnesota and
the world didn't come to an end," former Gov. Tim Pawlenty
said in a recent interview. "And so you don't want to have that
be your goal. But sometimes. when it's appropriate and you're
standing on the right principles, there needs to be strong con-
viction and sometimes a showdown."
Other would-be White House contenders are railing against
a Congress poised to pile on new debt, calling it irresponsible
and a symptom of an out-of-touch Washington. As they watch,
leaders of the two parties accuse each other of trying to bring
about a government shutdown that they can then blame on one
another.
"The shutdown's not good for anybody," former Arkansas
Gov: Mike Huckabee said in an interview. "I think the shut-
down needs to be viewed as getting the attention of the pow-
ers that be that America and the American people are done
with government just playing the gimmicks of accounting and
spending more money and saying 'we didn't have a choice.'
"By gosh, you've got a choice. Make the choice," Huckabee
intones. "Draw a line in the sand. For once in your lives, show
that you've got the political cojones to stand up and be count-
ed."

Limit
The federal government, now borrowing more than 40 cents
of every dollar it spends, will reach its debt limit this spring,
necessitating Congress to approve a bigger credit line to Cover
spending already approved. Both President Barack Obama
and GOP House Speaker John Boehner have urged raising the
debt limit, but some Republicans want to use the threat of a
failed voteito demand future spending cuts.
'TO m6 ;The' debt ceiling is a tool," Mississisppip Gov. HRIley'
Barbour'iaid. -ThiA is a tool to get spending cuts and to make
the left and anyone else understand the debt ceiling is going to
go up When we have a plan that puts us on a path .that starts
making the cuts."
Without the increase to the debt limit, the government would
be in a position to default on its financial obligations, stop
paying for some programs and send the global economy into a
free fall. The specter of an unchanged debt ceiling is also a pres-
sure point for Republicans looking to cut spending.
"There are a lot of people, though, who are saying, 'Shut her
down, if that's what it takes,'" said former Alaska Gov. Sarah
Palin. "Let it be for a week or two there, this message that is
sent to our politicians who are so tone deaf to what the people
of America are saying."
Calling for balanced budgets and cuts is easy for most of the
field. Most are former governors who had to balance their
budgets by law; only Barbour remains in office. Rep. Michele
Bachmann, a tea party favorite, is the only Washington.incum-.
bent seriously weighing a bid and she is on board to force cuts.
"It's time to force our elected officials to stop spendingcold
turkey, and we can start by making sure they do not raise the
debt ceiling," she told her supporters.
Bachmann also blamed Democrats for fears of a shutdown.
"That's a.bugaboo that the liberals right now are trying to
throw out to scare the American people. No one is going to
agree to a government shutdown. That will not happen. So
let's just take that off the table," she told Newsmax, a conser-
vative online publication.
Republicans hope their strategy will force Democrats to
explain why they want a larger credit card without first cutting
government spending. Democrats aren't making it easy. They're
on the verge of agreeing to some temporary cuts endorsed by
Obama while putting off until later decisions that might make
a real dent in the government's annual deficits.
With Obama proposing a $3.7 trillion budget for next year
and Republicans demanding deep cuts, the situation gives
'would-be White House contenders a chance to earn the public's
attention at a point when their campaigns are still coming
together.
And no one ever lost votes by criticizing Washington.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney blames Obama for
"frightening new levels of federal spending and deficits."
"I've never seen an enterprise in more desperate need of a
turnaround than the U.S. government," Romney said. "A vote
on raising the debt ceiling has to be accompanied by a major
effort to restructure and reduce the size of government."
Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, a White House budget director
for President George W. Bush, said Republicans should extract
"eight pounds of flesh in the form of major spending cuts" as
part of any deal to raise the $14.3 trillion ceiling on the gov-
ernment's debt.
Barbour points to GOP governors' records'balancing their
states' books, noting that he cut Mississippi's spending by 9.4
percent last year.
But Barbour also supports raising the debt ceiling. "Ameri-
ca would suffer enormous consequences," he said in a recent
interview with Fox News. "The dollar is the currency of the
world; it won't be if we default."
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is poised to
begin a White House bid in the coming weeks, encouraged law-
makers to raise the debt limit but not without first extract-
ing the spending cuts they promised during the midterm elec-
tions. "Another shutdown of the federal government is not
an ideal result, but for House Republicans, breaking their
word would be far worse," he wrote over the weekend in an
opinion piece for The Washington Post.


Gingrich is well aware of a similar faceoff with a Democra-
tic White House that resulted in the government shutdowns in
1995. At the time, President Bill Clinton blamed the shutdown
on Republicans and marched toward re-election a year later.


this week's Geneva Auto Show


COLLEEN BEARRY,
Associated Press
GENEVA


The car industry, it seems, just can't get
a break.
Just when automakers thought it safe
to roll out new models in the wake of
the devastating economic crisis 170
premiers are advertised for the Geneva
Auto Show opening this week confi-
dence is shaken by a spike in oil prices
due to civil unrest in Libya and other
energy-producing nations.
Gas pump prices, which are at a sea-
sonal record in the U.S., will sharpen
attention at the auto show on technolo-
gies that squeeze more power out of con-
ventional engines, along with much-antic-
ipated news in hybrid and electric vehi-
cles.
Although most carmakers are show-
ing upbeat signs of recovery, the key
theme, as during the financial crisis years,
will once again be fuel efficiency.
Rolls Royce's one-off electric-pow-
ered Phantom luxury sedan could give
electric the kind of upscale appeal it so
far lacks. The concept car, to be unveiled
on Tuesday, will be tested on tracks in
different climates around the world this
year to help decide what drivetrain it
should have. At the moment, however,
there are no plans to put the car into full
production, the carmaker said.
BMW, which owns Rolls Royce, also is
launching its latest AcfiveE electric con-
cept car in Geneva.
"We'll see a lot of alternative power-
trains, which will get a lot of attention
given the current oil prices. No one
knows where that is going to go, espe-
cially given what is going on in the Mid-
dle East," said Ian Fletcher, analyst at
IHS automotive.
As for hybrids, BMW and PSA Peu-
geot announced on the eve of the auto
show Monday that they would invest
eurol00 million ($138 million) in a joint
venture to build hybrid components from
2014,
Their goal is to create an open Euro-
pean platform for-hybrid technologies,
which PSA Peugeot Citroen CEO
Philippe Varin said the joint venture also
would enable development of electric
powertrains.
Also Monday, Volkswagen presented
a luxury hybrid for its Porsche brand,
the Panamera S. The car boasts carbon. -
emissions of 159 grams per kilogram and
consumption of 6.8 liters per 100 kilo-
meters.
There will be a particular focus on
engine downsizing, an industry term for
squeezing more power out of small
engines. Nissan will be showcasing a 1.2-
liter three-cylinder engine in the Nissan
Micar DIG-S that is touted as having the
same power as a 1.5 liter four-cylinder
model. Fiat has done similar work with
the Twin Air, engine in the Fiat 500.
"It's tweaking,current technology to
meet new levels of expectations. The
internal combustion engine is still a rel-
atively cheap way of producing power
on a light vehicle," Fletcher said.
With sales in Europe still sluggish,

MODEL PRESENTATION: Models jump out of the facelifted Volkswagen T 5 during a pre-
sentation of VW (Volkswagen) prior to the 81st International Motor show in Geneva, Switzer-
land, Monday, Feb 28, 2011. The International Motor show will run from March 3rd to 13th.


automakers have been counting on
emerging economies, especially China,
for major growth. But news that the
once-galloping economy is slowing down,
even to an enviable 7 percent, could
cause companies like Volkswagen and
BMW some worry.
Still, automakers are showing opti-
mism coming into Geneva, evident in
the rollouts planned. After seeing par-
ticipants scale back in recent years, orga-
nizers said they had requests for more
show space than they could provide, and
that 70 brands will be represented from
31 countries.

Prestigious
Geneva's motor show, which focuses
primarily on European companies, is
considered one of the more prestigious
auto events of the year.
And because it is based in industry-
neutral Switzerland, which does not pro-
duce cars on any industrial scale, it cre-
ates an even playing field for German,
French and Italian companies alike, not
to mention a rare venue for Asian
automakers like Tata to show cars out-
side of their markets.
Automakers that held back launch
during the economic crisis not wanti-
ng to squander the considerable invest-
ment will be out in force.
Fiat, which owns Chrysler, is launching
the Fiat Freemont, based on the Dodge
Journey and the first Fiat vehicle to be
born of the alliance with Chrysler. It goes
on sale in the second half of the year.
And Lancia, another Fiat brand that
will be the, European face of Chrysler,
will unveil a series of rebadged cars to
pave Chrysler's European renaissance
under Fiat's management: an updated
three-door Ypsilon minicar, a new Lan-
cia Thema sedan in the C-segment com-
bining American size with 'Italian style,
Flavia concept, a D-segment sedan car,

and Grand Voyager minivan. But per-
haps a surer sign that carmakers are feel-
ing cheery is that many high-end
automakers have new products to show.
"You only have to look at the launch-
es taking place. Look at the top end
Aston Martin, Jaguar, Rolls Royce. They
are all either unveiling concept cars or
new roll ours. If the top end of the mar-
ket is doing well, it's a good sign for the
overall economy and growth in devel-
oping markets," Fletcher said.
Italian design houses, meanwhile, will
be making a strong presence.
Bertone wants to turn Jaguar on its
ears, unveiling a design for a concept
called the B 99, for Bertone's 99-year
history, a compact four-door Jaguar
sedan that uses a full hybrid powertrain.
The B 99, named for Bertone's 99-year
history, is aimed at replacing the Jaguar
X-Type, discontinued two years ago, as
an entry model.
It's a fitting venue: Jaguar unveiled
the legendary. E-type 41 years ago in
Geneva.
Italdesign Giugiaro SpA, is present-
nug two new concept cars for Volkswagen
as it shows up for the first time at Gene-
va as part of the Volkswagen group.
VW last May acquired 90-percent of
the coach builder that previously had
designed Volkswagen Golf, Passat and
Scirocco along with the Audi 80.
It showed one, a sleek sport four-door
concept for the Volkswagen brand
named Tex for an Italian comic book
character and will unveil another on
Tuesday.
And the third in the triumvirate of
Italian design houses, Pininfarina will
see unveiled its latest Ferrari design, the
FF, a four-seat, four-wheel drive hence
the FF moniker V12 billed as the com-
pany's most powerful four-seater ever.
. The 81st edition of the Geneva Auto
'Show opens to the public from March
3-13.

Oil drops, but gasoline


prices

CHRIS KAHN,
AP Energy Writer
NEW YORK


Oil prices fell below $97 per
barrel Monday just days after
spiking above $100. Last
week's surge continued to rip-
ple through global pipelines,
however, as gasoline prices
jumped 8 cents over the
weekend.
Crude dropped on reports
that Libya was still exporting
oil. Shipments were thought
to have halted last week as
protesters clashed with the
government and strongman
Moammar Gadhafi lost con-
. trol of many of the country's
oil fields.'
But industry officials said
Monday that a tanker bound
for China was loading oil in
the Libyan port of Tobruk.
Saudi Arabia also was boost-
ing exports.
Benchmark West Texas
Intermediate crude for April
delivery lost 91 cents to settle
at $96.97 per barrel on the
New York Mercantile
Exchange. In London, Brent
crude fell 34 cents to settle at
$111.80 per barrel on the ICE
Futures exchange.
Traders said there is a "fear
premium" of $15 to $20 per
barrel built into the price of
oil to account for further dis-
ruptions in shipments as pro-
reform movements sweep
through North Africa and the
Middle East. Oil prices should
slide as the situation in Libya
stabilizes, analysts said.
However, energy markets
are so rattled right now that
continued unrest in other
major oil producers, includ-
ing Algeria and Oman, could
keep prices extremely volatile
this week.

million barrels of oil per day,
most of it bound for Europe.
Michael Lynch, president
of Strategic Energy & Eco-
nomic Research, expects oil
prices continue to fall this
week as rebels strengthen
their hold over Libya.
Still, further unrest in the
region will hold prices artifi-
cially high for months to
come, making diesel and
gasoline more expensive as
the world's major economies
continue to work their way
out of recession.
"One thing we know with
oil so high," Lynch said, "is
this is not going to be a robust
year for the economy."
Bank of America analyst
Francisco Blanch said the.
Libyan revolt created a mas-
sive disruption in world oil
supplies that will put a heavy
burden on Saudi Arabia and
other countries with spare
inventories.
Combined with an expect-
ed increase in global oil con-
sumption this year, a supply
shortage would generate
another "spike and crash sce-
nario" like the one seen in the
summer of 2008, Blanch said.
Gasoline prices shot up
nearly 20 cents per gallon in
the past week.
A gallon of regular cost an
average of $3.37 per gallon
on Monday, more than 66

time last year.

NEW YORK

Stabilizing oil prices and more signs of a stronger economy
sent stocks sharply higher Monday. The Standard and Poor's
500 index had its best start of any year since 1998.
Oil prices fell to about $97 a barrel as worries over the glob-
al oil market eased after reports that some Libyan ports
reopened to oil tankers and Saudi Arabia was boosting exports.
Prices surged above $100 a barrel last week as clashes between
rebels and government-backed forces intensified in Libya.
The Commerce Department said consumer incomes rose
by the largest amount in nearly two years in January, thanks to
a tax cut that began last month. The head of the Federal
Reserve Bank of New York, meanwhile, said that the country's
economic outlook has "improved considerably."
The Dow Jones industrial average gained 95.89 points, or 0.8
percent, to close at 12,226.34. The Standard and Poor's 500 rose
7.34, or 0.6 percent, to 1,327.22. The Nasdaq composite rose 1.22
points, or less than 0.1 percent, to 2,782.27.
All three major stock indexes posted their third straight
month of gains. The last time that happened was in the three-
month period that ended last April. The S&P 500 gained 3.2
percent in February, the Dow 2.8 percent and the Nasdaq 3 per-
cent. Those figures don't include dividends.
The S&P index has risen 5.5percent in January and Febru-
ary, its fastest increase at the start of a year since it jumped 8.1
percent in the first two months of 1998, according to Howard
Silverblatt, senior index analyst at S&P.
A new round of corporate deals also helped push some
stocks higher. Ventas Inc., which owns senior housing com-
munities, said it would buy Nationwide Health Properties Inc.
in a $5.8 billion deal that will create the nation's largest health
care real-estate investment trust. Nationwide Health rose 10
percent, while Ventas fell 3 percent.
Australia's Equinox Minerals Limited, a mining company,
said it would make a hostile bid to acquire Canada's Lundin
Mining Corp. for $4.9 billion in cash and stock. Lundin rose 19
percent while Equinox fell 9 percent. Both trade on the Toron-
to Stock Exchange.
The deals came just two days after Warren Buffett said in his
annual letter to investors that he is "itchy" to make more big
acquisitions for his company, Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Berk-
shire had $38 billion in cash at the end of last year. Its shares
rose 2.8 percent.
Humana Inc. rose 3.8 percent after the health insurer raised
its 2011 earnings forecast for the third time since November.
The company also said it regained a contract to provide cov-
erage for 3 million active duty and retired military members and
their families in several Southern states.
Amazon.com Inc. fell 2.2 percent after an analyst at UBS
downgraded the company and said that its new video stream-
ing service will cut into its profit margins.
Bond prices were little changed. The yield on the 10-year
Treasury note was unchanged from late Friday at 3.42 per-
cent.
Two stocks rose for every one that fell on the New York
Stock Exchange. Consolidated volume came to 3.5 billion
shares.


TREASURY BARELY BUDGE

ON MIXED ECONOMIC NEWS

NEW YORK

Treasurys were mostly flat Monday as traders weighed sud-
denly stable oil prices against mixed news on the economy.
The prices of the 10-year note edged down 6.25 cents. Its yield
was unchanged from late Friday at 3.42 percent.
The Commerce Department reported that personal income
rose by the largest amount in nearly two years in January, lift-
ed by a tax cut that began last month. Consumer spending
rose just 0.2 percent, the lowest increase since the monthly
gauge failed to rise last June.
Worries that unrest in Libya.would hinder oil production
eased, sending oil below $97 a barrel after trading above $100
last week. Turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa sent
investors into Treasurys in recent weeks, lowering their yields.
The 30-year bond rose 6.25 cents. Its yield slipped to 4.49 per-
cent from 4.50 percent late Friday. The yield on the 2-year
note dropped to 0.69 percent from 0.73 percent.
In the short-term Treasury bill market, the three-month bill,
paid a 0.13 percent yield. Its discount was 0.14 percent.

Dollar falls against most major currencies
NEW YORK

The dollar fell Monday against a group of six major curren-
cies on expectations that central banks overseas will raise inter-'
est rates before the Federal Reserve does.
Traders expect the European Central Bank and Bank of
England will raise rates as surging costs for food and oil drive
prices higher. Rate hikes are a tool to fight inflation and also
tend to support a currency. But higher rates can slow eco-
nomic growth, and with the price of oil circling $100 a barrel 8
economists expect that the Fed will keep rates low to bolster the 1T
U.S. economy. The dollar index, which compares the U.S. dol-
lar against six other currencies, fell to 76.92, its lowest point
since early November.
The euro rose to $1.3800 late Monday from $1.3741 Friday,
while the pound gained to $1.6267 from $1.6098. The dollar '
edged up to 81.77 Japanese yen from 81.71 yen. '
A speech by a Fed official Monday underscored the view of xl
the U.S. central bank as less anxious about inflation risks in the :
U.S. economy. William C. Dudley, the vice chairman of the
Fed's rate-setting committee, said in a speech in New York that ''
the Fed was "still very far away" from helping the U.S. economy .
reach a normal level of employment and price stability, and that 'i
"faster progress toward these objectives ... need not require an
early change in the stance of monetary policy." Reacting to the g
recent global jump in food and energy costs, he said that it A
would be "unvwise" for the Fed to "overreact" to the recent rise ;,,
in commodity prices.
A report from the government Monday showed that price nt

BODY AN D MIND


By JEFFARAH GIBSON
Tribune Features Writer


Letti


S OME see it as tantamount to murder so they refuse to
do it at all cost. Others see it as a way of exercising
their free will and avoiding a life of suffering,'and des-
titution. So many arguments but no on really knows
(unless they have been in the same situation), what it
is like-when you just got a pay cut, are making a lit-
tle over minimum wage, and the little you have must
feed two as well as spread out to pay utility bills, the rent, and last
until the next pay period. And on top of all of that you find out you
are 3 weeks pregnant.
Or you are making a reasonable amount of money, but men-
tality you are nowhere near prepared to deal with the unwanted
pressure that new life brings. Neither can the atmosphere in an
already jaded relationship welcome the coming of this new life
with open arms.
While the termination of a pregnancy is not accepted socially
and religiously, Tribune Health explored the circum-
stances surrounding two women's decisions to "let go"
of their unborn babies.
"It didn't have a heart beat. If it did I could not go
through with -it," 26-year-old Amia Davis* said
unhappily.
She still thinks about what transpired on the day she g
made the discovery. She was more than overjoyed about the tiny flutters
she felt in her tummy.
"I knew something wasn't right when I missed by period. But I did-
n't think nothing much about it because I missed my period be tore.
But I use to feel this flutter in my tummy and from then I kne%% that
something was there."
"I went to the doctor and the doctor came out and ask me t I '
wanted a boy or a girl. He also told me that I was four weeks
pregnant and although I was happy I knew that I couldn't
keep it." ,
Ms Davis made calculations in her head over and over. 1 kew
She sat down with her boyfriend who was against the some-
decision to terminate the pregnancy. But she was stick- hi wasome-
ing to her solution for the ordeal and nothing rigii when I
would change her mind. right when I
"It wasn't like I was in a position where I ',* missed by
was pregnant and my guy was disowning the period."
child and he was bailing out on me, he was there, he want-
ed me to have the baby. And to be honest I was between wanting to keep it and
wanting to get rid of it."
A few days later she took the six pills the doctor had advise her
to. Before she knew it everything was done.
"I was in a position where I could not provide for the
child. And to me it didn't make much sense bringing a baby
into this world that I know I would not be able to provide
for. I thought I should be more together before I do have
a child."
Sometimes she regrets the choice she made, especially
when she reflects on the fact that the little embryo floating
in the toilet had the potential-to have a heart beat.
"In the long run it was the best decision that I could have
ever made in my life," she said.
On discovering her pregnancy, Amia Davis had sup-
port from her partner. However, Madeline Munroe* did
hot have the support from her ex-boyfriend.
"When I found out I was pregnant I could not believe it.
I did not know how I managed to let that happen and I was
really devastated. I did not know what to do because when
I considered my situation it was hell and I how could I
bring a precious baby into hell," Ms Munroe said.
What also contributed to the decision of her unborn's
fate was the baby's father.
"I have a baby for him already. We are not.together any-
more and he does not take of the baby that I have for him
now so I could not imagine having another baby for him
because I would be the one left with the burden of having
to feed my two children, pay the bills and pay rent. Some
people really don't know or understand how hard that is
until you get in that situation. And if one baby can turn a
household upside down imagine two," she explained.
Ms Munroe said that many may not understand or agree
with her decision but it was in the best interest of her,
her three year old, and her unborn baby.
"I want people to look my situation and empathise with
me before they judge me or my decisions."


*Names have been changed


THE STRONG KOMEN LADIES WALK IN PARADISE


By ALESHA CADEt
Tribune Features Reporter '


O VERWHELMED by the tremendous
international support for the Walk in
Paradise, breast cancer survivor Helen Rolle told
Tribune Woman: "It was just awesome, every-
body was in high spirits and we are just grateful
for the support."
"It was beyond expectations, the turn out was
great, the support was great. There were sisters
and the other guests from abroad, we had the sur-
vivors and their families who came on board and
that was awesome."
Ms Rolle says there was over 200 or more
Breast Cancer Survivors of the Komen Florida
Affiliate that came to town last Saturday for the
annual Walk in Paradise.
The Komen ladies arrived on the Majesty of
the Seas cruise ship and they were all escorted by
bus to Paradise Island, for a reunion with the
Sister Sister women of Nassau. This emotional
reunion was followed by the Walk in Paradise
ceremony.
This marvelous venture into Health Tourism
began over four years ago when one of the visit-
ing Komen ladies asked the Nassau organizers of
the event how could they actually walk in Par-
adise. It wasn't long before Sun International's
Ed Fields and Katie Longley were brought into
the picture and they paved the way for the event.
"We say thanks to Atlantis for doing this,"
says Andrea Sweeting, President of Sister Sis-
ter, the Breast Cancer support group.


WALKING IN PARADISE: Breast cancer survivors smile as they walk in paradise.


Although the Walk in Paradise was held on
Paradise Island, unlike the recent Komen Race
for the Cure, it was private and not open to the
public, as only a limited number of complimen-
tary T-shirts were provided for the Komen and
Sister Sister Cancer Survivors by Scott Farrington
of Sun Tee. Mrs Sweeting says it is really all


about supporting and encouraging each other.
"This support is really crucial. Regardless of
what's happening in your life, you have to know
that there's someone there to hold your hand as
you go through it. From the standpoint of the
group, we know the women who do better are
always the ones who have support."


A number of local school choirs participated at
the event to provide entertainment, namely, St
Andrews, Kingsway Academy, Queen's College
and a recital from Oakwood Academy. The Roy-
al Bahamas Police Force Marching band and
pop band performed as well.
Ms Rolle said: "They did an awesome job and
the Royal Bahamas Police Force band was the
grand finale. The turn out was great and I felt
proud and it made me feel like we are not alone
in this.fight, we do have persons who do care
and there were survivors who came out who
were not afraid to say to the public, I am a sur-
vivor as well."
"Many of our women are still hiding and they
are still closed with it, but we thank God for
those bold soldiers who came, because they were
able to walk, that was their testimony what God
did for them, We want to thank the public for
their support," she said.
While the "Walk in Paradise" is Sister Sister's
way of helping women through their ordeal, what
they have actually created, with Atlantis' help is
a win-win situation for all as the event which
creates awareness for the Komen Women, the
Sister Sister Breast Cancer Support Group and
Sun International's Atlantis Resort.
Ms Andrea Sweeting added: "We want persons
to know that there is help and that there is still life
and hope after cancer. We want you to know
that you don't have to walk this road alone. For
me, when I was diagnosed I didn't know about
Sister Sister. But I believe that if you know what
your choices are, I think you'll make better deci-
sions."

Ten benefits of chiropractic adjustments


1. Decreases pain
Endorphins released during the adjustment
block pain causing a near instant relief

2. Reduces inflammation
The adjustment increases the blood supply
to the area thereby reducing the inflamma-
tion.

3. Improves the nutritional supply
The adjustment increases the blood supply
to the area providing fresh nutritional supply
to promote healing, as well as removing waste.

4. Shortens the recovery time
The adjustment heals from the inside out
therefore quickening the time for your body to
heal.,

5. Decreases muscle tension
Including the soft tissue work that most chi-,


ropractors practice, the adjustment releases
the muscle spasm because in most cases the
reason for the spasm is that the. dysfunction of
the joint is pulling the muscle. Therefore when
the joint is adjusted the muscle tension is
decreased.

6. Reduces pressure on nerves to allow them
to function optimally
When a joint is stuck (subluxated) it can
create pressure on the nerve, or the inflam-
mation from the dysfunctional joint can create
pressure on the nerve, which disrupts your


nervous system. The adjustment can cause a
relief of this pressure through movement of the
joint to the correct position.

.7. Helps maintain range of motion and flex-
ibility ,
Adjustments can help maintain your optimal
full range of motion in your joints which can
increase flexibility. Keeping the ability of your
joints to have full range of motion and flexi-
bility will help prevent muscle strain and joint
dysfunction.

8. Increases sports performance
A report in the Journal of Chiropractic
Research and Clinical Investigation found sig-
nificant increases in athletic performance after
only three months of chiropractic care, and
the US Olympic Committee assigns a chiro-
practor to its staffs for the Pan-American and
Olympic Games.


9. Increases overall health
When there is nerve interference from the
subluxation this results in the breakdown of
normal tissue cells. Abnormal tissue cells can
eventually turn into dis-ease. The adjustment
removes the interference allowing for the
replacement of abnormal cells to normal cells.

10. Helps with bad posture
The adjustment will allow for proper posi-
tioning of the bones which in turn will allow

Benefits of exercising outdoors


By CRAIG F WALKINE SR,
certified fitness trainer


AS we become more and more technologically dependent on
computers, cell phones, television, video games and such, we find
ourselves spending less and'less time outside.
No doubt this shift is having an adverse effect on our health gen-
erally as we have become a largely (pun intended) sedentary soci-
ety not utilising our beautiful outdoor surroundings to maintain an
active and healthy lifestyle.
Being blessed with generally great weather year round and an
abundance of "green" spaces, we should be some of the world's
most fit and physically active people. However, statistics recently
revealed by the Ministry of Health, showing that over 70 per cent
of Bahamians are either overweight or obese, confirms otherwise.
Exercising outdoors relieves the boredom of a stale exercise
regime and provides additional training stimulus, both physical and
mental. Compare running outdoors to running on a treadmill; dif-
ferent surfaces, hills and wind resistance all increase the difficulty
of your workout and instead of looking at a TV screen or blank
wall, you can immerse yourself in the scenery.
In addition, the sun is a great mood booster, and the vitamin D
it provides makes your bones stronger, strengthens your immune
system and helps protect your body against cancer.
Although vitamin D can be obtained from other sources, the sun
is still the best source for the human body. Plus, no air-condi-
tioned environment can compare to the fresh air outdoors.
Recent research has confirmed that "just five minutes exercising
in a green space such as a park can boost mental health".
The study, recently published in the Environmental Science
and Technology Journal in the UK, summarises that "green exer-
cise has numerous health benefits because connecting with nature
reduces stress levels and offers a healing, relaxing environment."
And, perhaps the best part is you don't need any fancy equip-
ment to get started. Brisk walking or jogging are great ways to bum
off calories and if you want to take things to the next level you
could head for the beach..
The resistance provided by the sand will intensify your workout.
If you're a beginner, start with compacted rather than soft sand.
You will still get the challenge of beach running but it won't be
quite as tough.
You can easily put together an outdoor circuit without equip-
ment. Runs, shadow boxing, jumping jacks and other activities
provide a cardio element while body weight exercises such as
push-ups and squats provide the resistance necessary for muscle
toning. Be creative and use your surroundings. Park benches will
provide you with a bench for triceps dips while curbs or steps are
ideal for step ups. If your park has a playground that's even better.
Bars and poles provide a great foundation for a resistance workout.
For those of us who get bored walking on a treadmill or elliptical
trainer, you need to move outdoors for some natural stimulation
and give your training a green boost. Here is a total body circuit
with some great, simple exercises you can do outdoors:
Total body outdoor circuit
This circuit combines cardio and resistance for a total body
workout.
Beginners should spend 30 seconds on each exercise and rest for
45 to 60 seconds.
Intermediate exercisers should aim for one minute on each
exercise and a rest period of 30 seconds.
If you're an experienced exerciser, challenge yourself by increas-
ing the amount of time spent on each exercise and reducing the rest
period.
Try to repeat the circuit at least twice or more depending on your
abilities and finish with a cool down, for example gentle jogging on
the spot followed by stretching.
Warm up.
Warm up with five minutes gentle cardio like walking, light
running, marching in place. This will increase your heart rate and
warm up your muscles.
Squats
The squat is one of the best exercises for toning the legs and
burning off calories. Perform slowly and concentrate on good
form for maximum benefits.
Shadow boxing
Use jabs, hooks and uppercuts to work the upper body and
waist and get your heart pumping.
Pull-ups
Target your back by performing pull-ups on a climbing frame or
low hanging tree branch. Beginners should keep their feet on the
ground.


Choose'
an object
in the
distance
and run
to it as
fast as
you can.


Sprints
Choose an object in the distance arid run to it as fast as you can.
Push Ups
Beginners should start on your knees and then progress to the
full version.
Step ups
Use a bench or step and keep your back straight to really focus
on the leg muscles.
Triceps dips
Stand with your back to bench and place your hands on the edge,
fingers facing forwards. Lower yourself towards the ground by
bending your arms to 90 degrees. The further away your feet, the
more difficult the exercise will be.
Jumping jumps
Remember them from primary school? Perform them fast for a
great cardio workout.
You can do all of these exercises using interval training which will
rev up your metabolism and burn calories. This training method
intersperses short bursts of high intensity with low intensity work,
for example, running for one minute, followed by one minute
walking. You can also vary the intensity using inclines.
Now you really have no excuse. Get started doing your own
thing, or join an outdoor fitness club. Whatever you decide, get out-
doors and get active.

CARLA K JOHNSON,
AP Medical Writer
CHICAGO

Eat more fibre and you just may'live longer.
That's the message from the largest study of its kind to
find a link between high-fibre diets and lower risks of death
not only from heart disease, but from infectious.and respira-
tory illnesses as well.
The government study also ties fibre with a lower risk of
cancer deaths in men, but not women, possibly because men
are more likely to die from cancers related to diet, like can-
cers of the esophagus. And it finds the overall benefit to be
strongest for diets high in fibre from grains. ,
Most Americans aren't getting enough roughage in their
diets. The average American eats only about 15 grammes of
fibre each day, much less than the current daily recommen-
dation of 25 grammes for women and 38 grammes for men,
or 14 grammes per 1,000 calories. For example, a slice of
whole wheat bread contains two to four grammes of fibre.
In the new study, the, people who met the guidelines were
less likely to die during a nine-year follow-up period.
The men and women who ate the highest amount of fibre
were 22 per cent less likely to die from any cause compared
to those who ate the lowest amount, said lead author Dr
Yikyung Park of the National Cancer Institute.
The study, appearing in last week's Archives of Internal
Medicine, included more than 388,000 adults, ages 50 to 71,
who participated in a diet and health study conducted by the
National Institutes of Health and AARP.
They filled out a questionnaire in 1995 or 1996 about their
eating habits. It asked them to estimate how often they ate
124 food items.
After nine years, more than 31,000 of the participants had
died. National records were used to find out who died and
the cause of death.
The researchers took into account other risk factors
including weight, education level, smoking and health status
and still saw lower risks of death in people who ate more
fibre. "The results suggest that the benefits of dietary fibre
go beyond heart health," said Dr Frank Hu of the Harvard
School of Public Health, who wasn't involved in the new
research but co-authored an editorial in the journal.
The evidence for fibre's benefits has been strongest in dia-
betes and heart disease, where it's thought to improve cho-
lesterol levels, blood pressure, inflammation arid blood sugar
levels. Fibre's benefits also may come from its theorised abil-
ity to bind to toxins and move them out of the body quicker.
High-fibre diets can promote weight loss by making people
feel full, which has its own health-promoting effects.
However it works, fibre may offer a prevention benefit
against killers like pneumonia and flu, the new study sug-
gests. The cancer benefit may have shown up only in the
men because they're more likely than women to die from
cancers related to diet, Park said.
Fibre is found in fruits, vegetables and beans. But fibre
from grains was most strongly tied to the lowered risk in the
study. "That's what seemed to be driving all these relation-
ships," said Lawrence de Kbning of the Harvard School of
Public Health, a co-author of the editorial.
Whole grains also contain vitamins and minerals, which
may play a role in reducing risk, he said. For that reason,
supplements may not be as effective.
"Nothing beats the original food," he said.
He suggested substituting whole wheat bread for white
bread as a simple way to increase fibre from grains.

What does a high-fibre diet look like?
A woman who wants to meet the 25 gramme guidelines for
daily fibre intake could eat one-third cup of bran cereal (nine
grammes), a half cup of cooked beans (10 grammes), a small
apple with skin (four grammes) and a half cup of mixed veg-
etables (four grammes).
To reach 38 grammes, a man could eat all that plus
about 23 almonds (four grammes), a baked potato (three
grammes), an oat bran muffin (three grammes) and an
orange (three grammes).
Experts recommend adding fibre gradually to allow your
digestive system time to get used to it.

FASHION POLICE


HUES of red, different shades of
cream and shimmery metallic fabrics
dominated the red carpet at the 83rd
Academy Awards in Los Angeles on
Sunday night.
Unfortunately, as some would say,
there were no major fashion faux pas
to entertain us (although Cate
Blanchett's highly structured Givenchy
Haute Couture raised some eye-
,brows).
And even though most ofthe ladies
chose to play it safe with traditional
award show gowns, there were some
that were definitely memorable.
Tribune Woman's Jeffarah and Ale-
sha weigh in on some of the night's
stand-outs.

1. "BLACK Swan" actress Mila
Kunis wearing lilac chiffon Elie Saab
Haute Couture.
(AP Photo/Chris Pizzello)

Alesha: Mila stole the ENTIRE
show when she stepped onto the red
carpet in that beautiful dress. Even
E!'s pre-show hostess Kelly Osboumne
pointed her out in the crowd. I loved
every detail, you go Mila!

Jeffarah: Like Halle's show-stop-
ping dress, Mila's was just as beautiful.
Love the colour, too, it reminds me
that we are stepping into Spring.


2. SHOW co-host Anne Hathaway
in a red strapless dress.
(AP Photo/Chris Pizzello)

Alesha: I'm not a big fan of red, but
red seemed to be the colour choice of
the night. The dress was not too hot in
my opinion, I didn't like the flower
details at the bottom. But Anne is
cute, she played it safe with her hair
and jewels.

Jeffarah: Red dress, red lipstick red
polish! Geesh, what's with all the red?
But wait, I think I've seen this dress
before, I remember seeing it in a con-
signment shop. And your tailor should
have taken the dress in just a tad bit,
because sweetie it's a bit loose!

3. HALLE Berry in a crystal
-encrusted corset gown from March-
esa.

Alesha: HALLE BERRY! She was
gorgeous as usual, I mean come on, it's
Halle!

Jeffarah: One word: Breathtaking!


4. BEST actress winner for "Black
Swan", the pregnant Natalie Portman
in a violet draped gown by the
Rodarte
(AP Photo/Matt Sayles)


Alesha: I did not like the dress, it
was too stale, but she can get a pass in
my book because she's pregnant and
she stilLlooks simplyjbeautiful.

Jeffarah: Considering that Natalie is
carrying that huge bump in the front of
her, I think her stylist did an okay of
job of finding a dress that accentuated
her figure.
However, she looks a little bland
with the side-part sweep. Maybe she
should ask Nicki Minaj to borrow a
wig to spice things up!

5. JENNIFER Hudson in tanger-
ine orange Versace. (#4P Photo/Chris
Pizzello)

Alesha: Ms Hudson is giving Halle
Berry some stiff competition in this
orange number, that is all.

Jeffarah: Love the dress, and the
deep plunge from the neck to cleav-
age. Though the colour is little bit
loud, I think she looks beautiful.


6. SUPPORTING actress nominee,
14-year-old Hailee Steinfeld in a bal-
lerina style, custom-made Marchesa
gown with" a. diamond and platinum
headband. (AP Photo/Matt Sayles)

Alesha: Nope, her stylist could have
done better. They should be fired.

Jeffarah: I have to ask you Hailee,
did you burrow that dress from your
grandmother?

7. CATE Blanchett in Givenchy
Haute Couture.
(AP Photo/Mqtt Sayles)

Alesha: Call me "brand new" or
"new school" but I don't see the sense
in wearing a dress such as this one. It
did not do anything for her at all.

Jeffarah: I get that the vintage look
you were going for, but it doesn't work
for me. I know Joan Rivers had a
whole lot of fun when your photo
flashed on the screen.

8. BEST Actress nominee Nicole
Kidman wearing Dior (her husband
Keith Urban is seen in the back-
ground).
(AP Photo/Matt Sayles)

Alesha: Ms Kidman won me over
with those red pumps she decided to
wear with that dress, loved the risk
she took.

Jeffarah: Hey Nicole, I was looking
for a curtain for my living room,
maybe you can help me out? In other
words, this dress just doesn't do it for
me.

MOST VALUABLE PLAYER: Kenneth Pratt, of the Pacers (red and white), goes for a layup last night as R M Bailey beat Grand Bahama's Sunland Stingers to win this year's Hugh
Campbell Basketball Classic at Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium. SEE more photos on page 2E

Pacers added
their first presti-
gious Hugh
Campbell Bas-
ketball Classic championship
title to the Government Sec-
ondary Schools Sports Asso-
ciation's title they won last
week.
The Pacers, coached by
Nigel Ingraham, last night
pulled off an 82-69 over the
visiting Sunland Baptist
Stingers in the New Provi-
dence versus Grand Bahama
showdown at the end of the
week-long double elimination
tournament for senior boys.
Kenneth Pratt, who put an
explanation mark on the Pac-
ers' triumph with.a one-hand-
ed fast break slam dunk for a
78-67 lead, was named the
most valuable player after he
scored a game high 35 points.
"It's all God. We put him
first all year and he gave us
the victory," Ingraham
stressed amidst the team's cel-
ebrations. "I always believed
that these boys could come
back. I believed in them and
they came through."
Sunland Baptist, coached
by Bonnie Basden, was one
of the two teams from Grand
Bahama who came to town,
although there was a boycott
by the majority of the teams,
including the Tabernacle Fal-
cons and the Jack Hayward
Wildcats.
"We have to be disap-
pointed. They put the pres-
sure on us, we turned over the
ball and all of our men were
in foul trouble, so we couldn't
do the job we wanted to do,"
Basden said.
"Down the stretch, RM
Bailey got the edge. I'm not
going to complain about the
officiating. We just have to
learn to overcome these
things. That's life. We have
to live with it."
The other team that partic-
ipated was the Eight Mile
Rock Blue Jays, coached by
Quinton 'Three Ounce' Hall.
Third quarter
RM Bailey started 0-9 from
the free throw line in the first
two minutes as Sunland
opened a 12-point lead, 54-42
on a lay-up from Devaughn
Gibson.
RM Bailey responded with
a 12-4 spurt to trim the deficit
to 58-54 to end the final break
on a lay-up from Kenneth
Pratt.
Second quarter
RM Bailey came back for a
17-17 tie as Pratt hit two crit-
ical free throws and both
teams traded baskets until
Sunland went up 31-27. Sun-
land went on to post a 38-36
margin at the half.
First quarter
RM Bailey had an early
three-point lead, 8-5, but Sun-
land went on a 6-0 run and
they took an 11-8 lead. They
eventually increased it to sev-
en, 17-10, on a fast break
dunk from Gibson. At the
end of the period, they led 17-
12.

Hurricanes on course





to win CCAA title with





deadly 1-2 punch


By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net


The Holland College Hur-
ricanes are on a course
to win the Canadian Col-
legiate Athletic Association
men's basketball title this week-
end and coach George Morrison
has a deadly 1-2 punch in sopho-
more Donathon 'Donnie' Moss
and transfer Leo Morris to thank
for it.
"Donnie is an excellent bas-
ketball player and an excellent
athlete," Morris stated. "He has
had an unusual impact on our
programme. Although Leo just
joined us over the Christmas hol-
iday, he has been.just as impres-
sive."
Moss, the 20-year-old graduate
of Jordan Prince Williams Fal-
cons, averaged 19.47 points and
8.2 rebounds per game. His best
performance was 33 points and
16 rebounds in a loss on January
14 and 31 points and 14 rebounds
in-a win two weeks ago.
"I just had to adapt to what
was going on here," said Moss
about making the transition from
playing high school ball to col-
lege in Canada. They were look-
ing for me for my leadership
role."
Coming from a system where
he was able to bang around his
-opponents in the Falcons' sys-
tem, Moss said he realized that
' he had to slow his game down
and develop his game a lot more
on the inside.
At 6-feet, 4-inches and 185
pounds, Moss plays basically as a.
small or power forward, but he ..
finds'hinis'elf having to step up, '
and play the middle as a center-
sometimes depending on who
he's guarding.
A tourism and travel manage-
ment major, Moss has been
named both Holland College and
CCAA Conference Athlete of
the Week on three different
occasions.
Morris, on the other hand, is 6-
0 and 180. He plays either the
shooting guard and or the small
or power forward spots, also
depending on his defensive
assignment.
"It's going all right. It's a
change of scenery from the


LEO MORRIS DONATHON MOSS


States (US), but so far so good,"
Morris said. "At the beginning
when I came here, I thought I
was going to be the only Bahami-
an.
"But when I found out that
Donnie was here, it made things
a lot easier for me. We have a
good chemistry going. We played
a lot this summer in the Nelson ,
Cooper Peace on the Street
Tournament, in Delaporte and C
I Gibson. So it was quite interest-
ing when we joined up here."
Morris, a graduate of St John's
College who transferred from
Eastern Wyoming Junior Col-
lege, is the Hurricanes' second
leading scorer and has the best
field goal percentage in the con-
ference.
"In the beginning, the coach
didn't play me much because he
already had his players and I
pretty much had to fight and
claw my way into the starting
line-up," Morris said. ,
"About the third game in, he
started me and I had a good
showing, averaging a steady 15-
16 points per game. I'm leAding
the country in field goal percent-
age and leading the conference


in steals and field goal percent-
age."
The hotel restaurant manage-
ment major is also on course to
being the first Holland College
player to win the Rookie of the
Year honours as well. In their
last four games that Moss missed
because of-an injury, Morris has
led the attack, averaging 23
points per game as they went 3-1.
"So far it's looking good. It
feels good for me and him to be
1-2 on the team,' he said. "I can
definitely say that people have to
prepare to play against the two'"
of us. It's really hard for them to-
just try to key in on one of us
because we have been playing so
well together."
This year, the Hurricanes have
posted a league's second best of
18-3 going into the playoffs.-Last
year, they were 16-5. In all, Moss
has helped the Hurricanes to an,.
impressive 34-8 record.
Morris made his impact after
joining the team over the Christ-
mas.holiday. "We're looking for
them to continue their stellar
play and contribution to the
team," said Morris.
"Donnie brings rebounding


and scoring and we are kind of
forced to play him out of posi-
tion, guarding the biggest guy or
the biggest best guy on the oppo-
site team."
Playing what he describes as
an "emotional type of game,"
Morrison said Morris "brings
some savvy to the court as an
older player and he's a strong
guard/small forward, who loves
to penetrate."
Having had a bye in the first
round, the Hurricanes have
advanced directly to the semifi-
nal. Holland College is hoping
for a rematch against top seed
Mount Saint Vincent Mystics,
whom they handed their only
defeat in their regular season
finale last week.
"We're optimistic. As long as
we play well, we certainly have
an opportunity to get to the final
and then-we will see what hap-
pens then," Morrison said,
That final is set for Sunday.
Moss is currently nursing an
injury to his right leg but hopes
that he will be able to suit up to
play this weekend. If he's avail-
able, he's, confident that they can
win.
But in the event that he's not
at 100 per cent, he feels it could
pose a problem should they get
into the championship game.
However, he feels that if he's not
there, Morris will have to carry
the load.
"If we win it, we feel confident
that we can win it," Morris said.
As a word of advice to those
players here at home, who have
an interest in playing college
ball, whether in the US or Cana-
da, Moss said "you're going to an
unfamiliar place, so you have to
be mentally and physically ready.
"You have to be in shape and
be strong because the main prob-
lem is that we don't lift weights
at home. But when we come
here, it's a big problem because
...the_guy.s are usually a lot
stronger."

Note: Holland College also
features another Bahamian,
Dimetrius Ferguson, who plays
on the Hurricanes' football team.
He. was awarded the Hilton Tro-
phyfor the most valuable player
of the year as they won the
championship title.

Bahamian

sailors in

Florida regatta

By Lori Lowe

FOUR young Bahamian Opti-
mist Dingy sailors attended this
year's International Valentine's
Regatta at St Petersburg Sailing-
Center in Florida earlier this
month. The event hosted over
220 Optimist sailors.
Top American sailors and
some of the top finishers at the
2010 Optimist Worlds attended.
Battling extremely cold sailing
conditions and the largest Opti-
mist fleets they had ever com-
peted against, all of our sailors
represented the Bahamas well
and should be congratulated on
their achievements.
Silver Fleet competitor Paul de
Souza, 11, had the best Bahamian
result, finishing 8th overall in the
62 boat Silver Fleet and 4th in
his age category. Paul was our
youngest sailor and sails out of
the Nassau Yacht Club.
Of the four sailors who attend-
ed the regatta, three were in the
Gold Fleet Tyler Cartwright,
12, of Deadman's Cay, Long
Island, 14-year-old Daniel Gib-
son and Pedro Rahming, 14,. of
H 0 Nash Junior High School in
Nassau.
Gold Fleet had a total of 160
competitors who were split into
four groups, with only two sailing
together at a time.
Mixed in among the Gold Fleet
were some of the top American
Optimist sailors as well as some
of the top finishers: at the 2010
Optimist Worlds, making this the
most competitive fleet'our sailors
have ever raced against.
Daniel Gibson, the current
Bahamian Optimist National
Champion, finished 94th overall
and 46th in his age group.
Daniel's best race was a 25th.
Pedro Rahming had two races
and he placed in the 30s. Overall,
he finished 120th and 56th in his
age group. Tyler Cartwright fin-
ished 142nd overall and 64th .ih
his age group.
Tyler had a 46th place finish
and would have.had a finish in
the 30s in the last race had the
second heat not been abandoned
by the race committee due to
dying wind conditions.

WASHINGTON (AP) -
Mike Bibby has reached a
buyout agreement with the
Washington Wizards, freeing
him from the last-place team
after just two games.
Bibby agreed to give up his
entire $6.2 million., salary. for
next season and was waived
on Monday. The move came
on the eve of the deadline for
players to be released in order'
to eligible for a playoff ros-

SAN ANTONIO (AP)' -
Spurs point guard Tony Park-
er is expected to miss two to
four weeks after straining his
left calf muscle in a win over
Memphis.
The Spurs announced Mon-
day that their star point guard
won't accompany them to
Memphis and Cleveland this
week. It will also leave the
NBA-best Spurs without
Parker for their first game
against LeBron James and the
Miami Heat on Friday.
Parker left Sunday's game
in the second quarter when
"he collided with Grizzlies

THAT Big Three in Mia-
mi is already becoming old
news, giving way to another
trio that can reshape the
league.
Speculation shifts quickly
in the NBA. LeBron James,
Dwyane Wade and Chris
Bosh hadn't even played
their first game together in
Miami before the focus
changed to Carmelo Antho-
ny.
The Melodrama finally
ended last week and imme-
diately kicked off an appar-
ent Deronathon the long
. journey until Deron Williams
can become a free agent.
Dwight Howard and Chris
Paul join him as the potential
'headliners of the 2012 class.
Even before Anthony was
traded to New York and
Williams was dealt to.New
Jersey the next day, the three
All-Stars were already fac-
ing questions about their
plans.
They shouldn't answer.
That's the advice from
players who were part of last
year's free agency frenzy.
They believe Anthony's saga
was worse and think the one
involving next year's group
could even top that.
Wade said if he could go
back, he'd have done what
James did --.answer no
questions during the season.
So his message for his
Olympic teammates is pretty
simple.
"Probably not to keep
talking about it," Wade said.
Hall of Famer and TNT
analyst Charles Barkley was
even more direct.
"The thing that bugs me
the most, I don't understand
why you talk about these
things when you're not a free
agent. Carmelo should have
came out like Albert Pujols
and said, 'Hey listen, we're
not going to talk about this
any more. I play for the Den-
ver Nuggets, and whatever
'happens, happens,'" Barkley
said during the All-Star
break. "You should never
talk about the job you're
going to have in the future."
But the questions will be
unavoidable. For Williams,

arrived in New Jersey. He
said during his news confer-
ence it was too soon to think
about committing to the Nets
long term.
Paul is sure to draw just as
much media attention as
Anthony on Wednesday,
with New Orleans making its
lone visit to Madison Square
Garden. He's long been con-
sidered the next piece that
comes to New York -
unless it's Williams or
Howard.
That's the legacy of last
summer, when James, Wade
and Bosh set in motion the
idea of super teams through
free agency.
"I think at first it was the
unknown, but now everyone
gets to see that quote-
unquote star players in this
league can go try to team up,
so now everyone wants to
talk about where they can go"
and who they can team up
with," Wade said. "Now it's
something that's become
reality."
The questions started
some two years early for last
year's class. James at first
seemed to like the attention,
but tired of the talk and the
effect it was having on the
Cavs. He announced in
November 2009 he wouldn't
take any more free agency
questions until the season


was over.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) The
Philadelphia 76ers were 3-13 and
another lost season appeared on the
horizon. Doug Collins could not let a
total collapse happen.
He wasn't hired to let the Sixers
plod through another year where the
only highlight would be a high lot-
tery pick. He called them together
and offered the type of scouting
report he might have unleashed if he
was still a TNT broadcaster.
Collins delivered a tough-love ser-:
mon that might have surprised more
than a few Sixers who had grown
comfortable in a losing environment.
"When we were 3-13, we could
have hung our heads and guys could
have went their separate ways. He
wouldn't let us," forward Elton
Brand said. "He called guys out,
which might not have happened in
the past. He straight-up called them
out. He said names. To their faces. In
front of the team."
Look at the Sixers now an
improbable 30-29 and playing with a
belief they can beat any top team in
the NBA.
When Collins calls out his players
these days, it's to heap praise on his
surging squad that has grown from
thinking they can make the playoffs
to believing they can win a first-round
series.
In a league where superstars and
super teams rule, they've proved 12
talented players working hard and
working together can win.
"I wanted us to be relevant again.
We are," Collins said. "I want us to
be more than relevant. I want us to be
really good. I wanted people in the
NBA talking about us, which they
are."
The Sixers have won a season-high
four consecutive games entering
Tuesday's game against Dallas (43-
16). In November, a game against the
Mavericks would have been consid-
ered an automatic loss. Not anymore.
Consider this final against West-

nio from Feb. 11: 76ers 77, Spurs 71.
The numbers don't lie.
The Sixers are 27-16 since Novem-
ber 26, and are tied for the seventh-
highest winning percentage (.628) of
any team in the league over that span.
Philadelphia is above .500 for the
first time since it was 3-2 in 2009-10. -
The Sixers have won 13 of their past
17 games, including six of the past
seven.
"We can't get caught up in the
numbers," swingman Andre Iguo-
dala said. "We're playing well right
now. We can't get too happy and
relax."

"We didn't say, 'Woe is


us. We stink. Another dismal year,'"
Brand said. "No, we played hard and
got better."
Brand has rediscovered his old,
double-double form (and his happi-
ness) and sparked the resurgence into
seventh place in the Eastern Confer-
ence, just a game behind the retooled
New York Knicks. He leads the team
with averages of 15.3 points and 8.8
rebounds, and is shooting 55 percent
from the field since January.
Iguodala has developed into'a well-
rounded, triple-double threat, and
reserves like Thaddeus Young and
Lou Williams are winning games late
in the fourth quarter.
Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner
have erased various dry spells to
prove they can be the backcourt of
the future, and make deep postseason
runs more of a reality.
They beat the teams they're sup-
posed to beat sub.-500 ones like
Detroit, Cleveland, Washington,
Charlotte since January, while
knocking off winning teams like the
Spurs, Utah, Chicago, and Phoenix.
They went 9-3 in February (.750) for
their third straight winning month.
The winning percentage was Philadel-
phia's highest in a single month since
February 2003 (8-2, .800).
As much as the numbers sparkle,
the Sixers credit Collins for the
n Eyenga in revival. "If we lose a game, it's not
coach* Collins' fault," Young said.
"It's not his fault we were 3-13. It
(AP Photo) was definitely our fault. He's pre-
pared, he motivates us. That's what
accomplish we love about him, his intensity, his
e the good love and his passion for the game."
'e usually Collins has the Sixers wanting more

id finished play once more on April 6) and lock

ne season, place for the players to hang after a
15 through game. Maybe they can't win an NBA

)rding to this season matter. "I wanted my
team to have fun," Collins said, "and
me, woe is they're doing that."


Michigan

State faces

must-win

games for

NCAA

hopes

By LARRY LARGE
AP Sports Writer

EAST LANSING, Mich.
(AP) Michigan State start-
ed the season ranked No. 2,
insisting that making a third
straight Final Four wouldn't
be satisfying.
As the unranked Spartans
(16-12, 8-8 Big Ten) start the
last week of the regular sea-
son, they simply hope to get
into the NCAA tournament.
"I don't talk about it all the
time because there's enough.
pressure on them," Michigan
State coach Tom Izzo said
Monday. "It is something that
is important to all of them and
it is to me. I don't ignore it,
but I don't beat on it either.!
We're telling them every
game is like an NCAA tour-
nament game for us now."
The Spartans probably
can't afford to close the sea-
son on a slide if they want to
extend their NCAA tourna-
ment streak to 14 years. They
host last-place Iowa on
Wednesday night and travel
to play rival Michigan on Sat-
urday after losing to both
teams earlier this season.
The Hawkeyes have won
just three conference games,
but one of those victories was
by 20 points Feb. 2 at home
against Michigan State.
"I think that was the worst
we played in a couple of
years," Izzo said. "Maybe
they had something to do with
it and we had a lot to do with
it."
After winning three of four
games, Michigan State lost by
20 points to then-No. 8 Pur-
due on Sunday its worst
loss at home since 2003 -
and slumping senior Durrell
Summer voiced disappoint-
ment.
"We tried to fix the 'D.'
We've tried to fix the offense
and energy," Summers told
reporters Sunday. "Maybe it's
something else."
Izzo said. Summers' com-
ments were relayed to him. -
"Maybe I take offense to
some of the things I heard,"
Izzo said. "Do I blame him?
Not at all. He's frustrated."
Summers was an NCAA
regional MVP last year, help-
ing Michigan State reach its
second straight Final Four,
and averaged 18.8 points on
55 percent shooting over fiye
games in the NCAA tourna-
ment. He is averaging 9.5
points in the Big Ten on 33
percent shooting this season,
hurting a team that desper-
ately needs a second scorer
to consistently compliment
senior point guard Kalin
Lucas.
Izzo, though, is trying to
take pressure off Summers by
accepting responsibility for an
underachieving season.
"I'll take all the blame for
the way the season has gone
to take it off his shoulders,"
Izzo said. "When you're a star
coach, you have to coach to
that level."
Izzo, who won the 2000
national championship and
has coached in half of the past
dozen Final Fours, turned
, down a chance to coach the
Cleveland Cavaliers last sum-
mer in part because he loves
the program he has devel-
oped.
Former Michigan State
greats such as Earvin "Magic"
Johnson, Steve Smith, Mateen
Cleaves and Jason Richard-
son stay in contact with Izzo
and his players. Izzo said none
of them has been able to
reach his senior class like they
had with previous groups.
"This .group hasn't
embraced it the same way,"
Izzo said. "That's a coach's
job to make sure that is taken
care of. It should fall squarely
on my shoulders."

MANCHESTER, Eng-
land (AP) The NBA,
the WNBA and the US
men's and women's
national basketball teams
are heading to Manches-
ter, spreading the sport's
American reach in Britain
beyond London.
The NBA has had pre-
season games in London
for four straight years. The
New Jersey Nets and
Toronto Raptors play reg-
ular-season games there
Friday and Saturday.
The league will play an
exhibition game at Man-
chester's MEN Arena in
2013, with the teams still
to be announced.
This year, the Atlanta
Dream of the WNBA is to
play an unannounced
opponent in a preseason
game May 29. The US
men's and women's
national teams will play in
Global Community Cup
games in July 2012, days,
before the opening cere-
mony of the London
Games. Both teams won
the gold medal at the 2008
Beijing Olympics.
"This comprehensive
schedule of premier bas-
ketball events will help
grow the sport for years to
come," NBA Europe
senior vice president
Sophie Goldschmidt said.
"This partnership shows
our ongoing commitment
to deepen basketball's
footprint in the country."
For the WNBA, this is
only the second time it will
play internationally fol-
lowing a game in Monter-
rey, Mexico, in 2004. The
Dream won the Eastern
Conference championship
in 2010 but lost to the
Seattle Storm in 'the finals.
"This, will be our second
preseason game and five
days later we open our
campaign," Dream coach
Marynell Meadors said.
"it will prepare us for
travel. It will prepare us
for playing someone dif-
ferent. We will learn some-
thing from it."

night and opened a five-point
lead in the Italian league.
Ibrahimovic converted a
penalty kick in the 49th
minute following a hand ball
by Salvatore Aronica, and
Boateng scored off a cross
from Pato in the 77th. Pato
scored two minutes later,
shooting past two defenders

1-1 tie at Stoke
STOKE,. England (AP) -
West Bromwich Albion
climbed out of the Premier
League relegation zone, with
Carlos Vela scoring in the
86th minute to gain a 1-1 tie at
Stoke.
Rory Delap had given
Stoke the lead in the 53rd
minute, but Vela got a goal
when he slotted in Steven
Reid's cross in the 86th. Tele-


vision replays suggested Vela
was offside.
The Mexican forward
scored a tying goal in injury
time last weekend against
Wolverhampton after he was
loaned to West Brom by
Arsenal.
West Brom (7-13-8) is 17th
with 29 points, one more than

Almerica ahead in the eighth
minute, but the hosts rallied
on goals by Enzo Maresca in
the 52nd, lose Rondon in the
78th and Juanmi Jimenez in
the third minute of injury
time.
Almeria finished two men
short after Jose Ulloa
received a second yellow card
for elbowing Eliseu Pereira
in the 76th and Antonio Luna
got a red card in the 88th.
Malaga (6-14-5) is 19th with
23 points, two above last-

Ronaldinho's return to Brazil already a success


By TALES AZZONI
Associated Press


SAO PAULO (AP) It
took only six matches for
Ronaldinho's return to Brazil,-
ian football to be considered a
success.
Ronaldinho still isn't play-
ing the kind of football that
twice made him the FIFA
player of the year, but on
Sunday he scored a decisive
goal and lifted his first trophy
since joining Flamengo after
10 years in European foot-
ball.


NFL: Raiders deals include

no signing bonuses


By JOSH DUBOW
AP Sports Writer


ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP)
-. While the Oakland
Raiders have handed out
some big contracts already to
keep potential free agents off,
the open market, they won't
have to start paying out on
those deals until after there's
a resolution to the league's
labour dispute.
The Raiders have made
more than $80 million in com-
mitments to five of.their play-
ers, but none of those deals
include signing bonuses that
need to be paid before any
games are played.
"When you're signing these
players to contracts the way
we signed them, these con-
tracts are all for the future,'
senior executive John Her-
rera said Monday. "These
guys will have to come in and
play and earn their money
before they get paid. The
Raiders have not paid out a
dime at this point in time."
The Raiders have been one
of the most aggressive teams
so far this offseason as most
clubs wait until a new collec-
tive bargaining agreement is
reached before making
moves. The current CBA
expires Thursday.
Oakland gave cornerback
Stanford Routt a $31.5 mil-
lion, three-year deal; handed
defensive tackle Richard Sey-
mour a $30 million, two-year
contract with $22.5 million iin
guarantees; placed a $10.1
million franchise tag on line-
backer Kamerion Wimbley;
signed defensive tackle John
Henderson to an $8 million,
two-year deal and signed spe-
cial teams standout and back-
up running back Rock
Cartwright to an undisclosed
contract.
"What we did is protect our
football team," Herrera said.


"These are moves that pro-
tect our franchise and protect
our team and put us in a posi-
tion to move. on."
Herrera equated the move
to keep Seymour as Oak-
land's "first-round pick" this
year since the Raiders sent
that selection to New Eng-
land before the 2009 season
to acquire Seymour. He has
already played two seasons in
Oakland, making the Pro
Bowl last year as the Raiders
finished 8-8 for the first non-
losing season since 2002Z
Seymour made a big impact
on the field, as well as in the
locker room where a mostly
young team viewed him as a
'strong leader with the experi-
ence of having won three
Super Bowl titles with the
Patriots.
"In my opinion, he was the
heartbeat of our defense .as
far as high level of perfor-
mance he demands from
everybody on the field,"
Routt said. "He's definitely
someone you don't want to
disappoint or let down
because he came from New
England where he won three
titles. You don't want him to
have any harsh feelings about
no longer being in New Eng-
land."
The Raiders tried to keep
Wimbley for much less money
by exercising a $3.5 million
buyback option that would
have given him about $4.1
million next season. But the
NFL ruled that contract was
invalid so the Raiders used
the franchise tag instead to
keep the player who led-the
team in sacks last season.
Oakland views Routt as a
potential number one comer-
back after he had his best sea-
son in six years as a pro last
year, putting up some of the
best numbers in the league in
terms of shutting down oppos-
ing receivers.


"I'm euphoric," Ronaldin-
ho said after Flamengo's 1-0
victory over Boavista in the
Guahabara Cup final. "This
is how I want to make history
with Flamengo, scoring goals
and winning titles."
The goal in the Guanabara
Cup the first stage of the
Rio de Janeiro state champi-
onship was Ronaldinho's
third since making his debut
with the popular Brazilian
club following a transfer from
AC Milan in January, a move
that brought him back to
Brazil after thriving with
some of Europe's top clubs.
"I came to Flamengo at the
right time," the 30-year-old
Ronaldinho said. "
"I'm very motivated to start


playing well again and to be
happy again."
Ronaldinho was FIFA's
player of the year in 2004 and
2005 with Barcelona, but was
struggling recently with AC
Milan and decided to return
home to revamp his career.
"My goal is to return to the
national team as soon as pos-
sible,." he said. "I'll keep
working hard."
Ronaldinho is yet to have a
stellar performance since his
debut with Flamengo on Feb.
2, but the club has won five of
the six matches he played.
He scored his first goal with
Flamengo with a penalty kick
.against Boavista in the group
stage on Febrtary 6, and his
second came with a header


against Murici in the Brazilian
Cup on February 16.
The 71st-minute goal on
Sunday came at a, crucial
moment for Flamengo, which
was dominating the match but
was having difficulties getting
past the opponent's tight
defensive scheme at the
Engenhao stadium in Rio.
He curled a right-footed
shot over the wall, striking it
so perfectly that he began
running to celebrate even
before the ball hit the net. He
ran near the sideline with sev-
eral teammates lined up
behind him, all dancing
together.
The playmaker was praised
and hailed in headlines across
Brazil's top newspapers on


Monday.
"Ronaldinho decides with
masterful goal," the Lance
sports daily said.
"Ronaldinho gives Fla-
mengo the title," read a front-
page headline in the 0 C lobo
newspaper in Rio.
Ronaldinho signed with
Flamengo in January after a
controversial negotiation that
involved two other Brazilian
clubs, Palmeiras and Gremio,
where he started his career.
Ronaldinho's agent and
brother Roberto Assis nego-
tiated with the three clubs for
several days before announc-
ing Ronaldinho's decision to
join Flamengo until the 2014
World Cup, which will be
played in Brazil.


WINNING RETURN: Flamengo's Ronaldinho holds up the Guanabara trophy after Flamengo defeated Boavista 1-0 in the Guanabara Cup final
in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on Sunday. The Guanabara Cup is the first stage of the Rio tournament and its winner will play for the Rio state title
against the Rio Cup champion.

Donald wins Match Play in record fashion


By DOUG FERGUSON
AP Golf Writer

MARANA, Ariz. (AP) -
The weirdest week ever at the
Match Play Championship
ended with what must have
felt like a strange sensation
for Luke Donald.
He was posing with a tro-
phy on American soil.
It had been five years since
Donald last won a PGA Tour
event, though it certainly was
not from a lack of effort. Play-
ers don't crack the top 10 in
the world without doing
something right. But this was
a week when almost nothing
went wrong.
When he closed out Mar-
tin Kaymer on the 16th hole
Sunday, the 33-year-old Eng-
lishman had won his first
World Golf Championship
with a performance that is
stunning by the numbers
alone:
He played 89 holes in six
matches, the fewest ever in
the 13-year history of this
event, and became the first
player to never trail after any
hole in any match. Donald led
his opponent after 81 of those
89 holes.
He made 32 birdies,
which is slightly better than
one every three holes.
He became the first
player to win any tournament
without ever having to play
the 18th hole. Donald's
longest match was in the sec-
ond round when he beat
Edoardo Molinari on the 17th
hole.


Donald won the Madrid
Masters last year on the Euro-
pean Tour against a relatively
week field. ,
This time, he beat the best.
"I solely focus on trying to
win tournaments," Donald
said. "I felt like I hadn't won
i my fair share for as good a
player as I felt I was and could
be. It was disappointing. It
was frustrating to me. To
come here and compete
against the best players in the
world and win the trophy is
very gratifying."
As for the rest of the week,
it was suireal.'
It started with Tiger Woods
losing in the first round by
hitting a 3-wood into the
desert on the first extra hole.
Then came Saturday, and the
greatest comeback in Accen-
ture Match Play Champi-
onship when Bi4bba Watson
rallied from 5 down with eight
holes to play to beat J.B.
Holmes on the 19th hole,
after perhaps the longest time
it took to take a drop.
Sunday morning was off the
charts.
Donald drew back the cur-
tains in his hotel room to see
Dove Mountain covered in
snow. An overnight winter
storm dropped nearly an inch
of snow in the high desert,
.and four hours before the
championship match, the fair-
ways were white.
The snow melted in plenty
of time, but on the fourth hole
against Kaymer, play was
halted for 10 minutes because
sleet covered the fairway and

green. They had to wait for it
to melt.
"It was kind of bizarre
crouching under my umbrella
like that," Donald said. "We
had to pause for 10 or 15 min-
utes just for the green to dry
out. It was testing conditions."
That was about the only big
test he faced all week.
Kaymer's consolation prize
was going to No. 1 in the
world, which he assured just
by reaching the championship
match. He earned enough

up to a career-best No, 3.
That made him pause.
"Whether I deserve No. 3
in the world, I don't know,"
he said. "Certainly in terms
of my work ethic and wanting
it, then I do deserve it."
Asked to explain what he
meant, Donald again men-
tioned his lack of wins.
The Match Play counts as
his third PGA Tour victory,
and first since the 2006 Honda
Classic. He has won three
times in Europe.
He expected more out of
himself.
Even so, he was dismissive
of anyone who would suggest
he was playing for the money.
An American writer a few
years ago, writing for the
British press, referred to any-
one satisfied with a big check
as having "Luke Donald dis-
ease."

finals of the ence, a prominent British
journalist mentioned Don-
ald's critics and. asked if he

ymer, went "I feel like my work ethic is


as good as any player out
here," he said. "I work very
hard trying to think about
ways to keep improving, keep
getting better. And winning
is what it's all about."
His work on the short game
cannot be questioned, for it
carried Donald to victory
against Kaymer.
Donald opened a 3-up lead
through five holes, the most
impressive at No. 4 after the
sleet delay, when Donald
stuffed his approach into 2
feet and Kaymer missed his
7-foot birdie.
The German came right
back and squared the match
after nine holes, then
appeared to have the advan-
tage on the 10th when Donald
went from the desert into a
waste area short of the green.
It's a tough shot from com-
pacted sand, not knowing how
the ball will come out Donald
blasted out to 3 feet to halve
the hole, and he won the 11th
and 12th to take command.
From short of the 15th
green, he hit a delicate wedge
to 3 feet and went 3 up with
three holes to play.
"It was a very good week
for me," Kaymer said. "Of
course, I was hoping to win
today. I was trying everything
I could. I just didn't play as
good as the last few days. And
the way Luke plays, even a
decent round isn't enough."
A decent week wasn't good
enough for Donald. He fixed
that with a week unlike any
other, and the biggest win of
his career.
