Bahamas must
justify need
for funding

By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reperter

CONTINUING budgetary

pressure in the US requires that
member countries of Operation
Bahamas Turks and Caicos con-
tinually examine how efficient
ly they fight narcotics trafficking
in The Bahamas.

The countries must be pre-
pared to justify their use of
resources and assets to the deci-
sion makers in Washington, US
Ambassador John Rood said
during the opening of the joint
narcotics task force meeting at
the Attorney General’s office
yesterday .

The annual meeting features
key players in OPBAT and var-
ious government and national
security officials from both the
US and the Bahamas.

Heading the Bahamas team
was Foreign Affairs Minister
Fred Mitchell.

Mr Mitchell said that the link
between smuggling of migrants
and illicit drugs continues to be
of grave concern to the
Bahamas. He requested that the
ambit of the meetings be

expanded to include the subject"

of migration.

Mr Rood, briefly mentioning
the issue of illegal migration,
said that it is appropriate that
the countries discuss the issue as
migrant traffickers often move
illegal narcotics along with their
migrant passengers.

“Coast Guard assets have
played a key role in interdicting

/

both illegal migrants and nar-
cotics heading to The Bahamas
and to the US. Illegal migration
creates great economic costs to
the Bahamian government.

“I hope that by openly dis-
cussing the challenges we face
today we can-work:- together to
find the best, most cost efficient
and effective way, to defeat our
common drug-trafficking threat.
This is a fight we cannot afford
to lose. It wasn't that long ago
that the Bahamas was synony-
mous with cocaine trafficking. It
is our combined task to ensure
that this never occurs again,”
he said.

OPBAT, said Mr Rood, is
one of the true success stories in
the. war on drugs and is a mod-
el for multilateral cooperation
that is now being emulated in
other parts of the world.

However, this success does
come at a price, he said.

“The US government spends
more than thirty million dollars
a year in support of OPBAT.
This funding comes from a
number of different US agen-

‘ cies, each of which faces its own

funding constraints,” he said.

The ambassador said, for
example, the State Departmen-
t's Narcotics Affairs Section
faced the prospect of a loss of
half of its funding in 2005.

However, intervention by Mr
Mitchell and himself helped
turn this around.

TRIBUNE Feature Editor
Yolanda Deleveaux was one of
three Caribbean journalists to
be recognised for their excel-
lence in journalism, during the
7th Caribbean Media Exchange
on Sustainable Tourism (CMEx
VII), held in Nassau earlier this
month.

The Bahamas, St Kitts and
Nevis and the Caribbean Dias-
pora in New York took the
spotlight at the finale of the
2005 CMEx Caribbean Media
Awards. Joining Ms Deleveaux
to receive top honours during
the awards presentation were
Guyanese-born Clive Bacchus,
general manger of WINN FM
in St Kitts and Nevis, and
Brooklyn-based Glenda Cado-
gan, from Trinidad, who free-
lances for outlets such as
Caribbean Life and the New
York Daily News.

"Each of these journalists
has demonstrated a strong com-

mitment to their trade, and they
understand the importance of
sustainable tourism develop-
ment to the Caribbean region,"
said Dr Basil Springer, chair-
man of Counterpart Caribbean,
co-producers of the CMEx
series of meetings.

According to Dr Springer,
both Counterpart International
and Counterpart Caribbean are
committed to recognising excel-
lence in the media, with both
serving as key Caribbean devel-
opment partners. "The media
are internal auditors for social
partnership," said Dr Springer
who encouraged reporters
across the region to be "bold
and brave" in investigating the
news, pursuing the truth, and
highlighting the positive aspects
of Caribbean life.

RADAR failure at Nassau

This is the second time in the

Abducted
man: police
continue
search

By NATARIO MCKENZIE

' THE search continues for
one of two men who were
abducted from their residence
off East Street on Thursday,
beaten and then robbed.
According to police press liai-
son officer Walter Evans,
around 6.30pm on Thursday a
25-year-old man and his room-
mate were accosted at their
house off East Street by a group
of men, two of whom had hand-
guns while two others had

‘knives,

The group reportedly forced
the residents into a black
coloured vehicle and took them
to the Tower Heights area
where they robbed and beat
them. According to Mr Evans,
the roommate has not yet been
found. Mr Evans said that fur-
ther investigations into the inci-
dent would determine whether
or not the incident was gang
related.

Mama’s Cafe on John F
Kennedy Drive was robbed yes-
terday according to police
reports. According to Mr Evans
around 3pm yesterday two men
ordered meals from the eatery.
After paying for the meals the
men reportedly produced a
handgun and robbed the estab-
lishment of an undetermined
amount of cash. Both robbers
escaped on foot.

The City Market food store
on East Street South was also
robbed yesterday, according to
police. ,

Thursday’s radar failure
comes at a time when the
Bahamas is soon expected to
take control of its own airspace.

lect tens of millions of dollars in

ed States.

Tribune Staff Begonia

ST Thomas More and Gov-
ernment High School both
defended their titles as Junior
Junkanoo champions in what
was a dazzling display by the
nation’s youth on Thursday
night.

Bay Street was packed with
onlookers as the various schools
performed their hearts out,
leaving no doubt that the future
of Junkanoo is secure.

The crowd was so impressed
that throughout the evening,
spectators could be heard say-
ing, “This look’s like Boxing
Day”.

The evening began with the
youngest performers — the pre-
schoolers.

One on One pre- -school won
the category with 1,366 points.
The theme was Ten Years of
Educational Service and cos-
tumes featured building blocks
with numbers and letters. One
on One also captured the best
music award.

Second place went to Kidz
Care who got 1,261 points for:
Exploring Atlantis Under the
Sea.

In the elementary division:
the battle came down to rivals
St Thomas More and Our
Lady’s Primary.

For the second year in a row,

St Thomas More defended its“

title, earning 2238 points.

The judges were blown away
by the school’s portrayal of A
Goombay Summer in Nassau,
which was designed as a tribute
to the Ministry of Youth.

The crowd was thrilled to see
the famous Goombay face on
all the costumes as the young-
sters danced their way up Bay
Street.

The group also captured best
music competition.

Our Lady’s theme: So many
islands So Much Fun, It’s Hip
To Hop To The Bahamas
earned them second place with
2,048 points.

Third place went to Mabel
Walker Primary, as they invited
Sponge Bob Squarepants and
all his friends to visit the
Bahamas. They received 1,723
points.

Fourth and fifth places went
to Revere Academy (1627
points) and One on One Pri-
mary (1492 points).

Revere Academy’s theme
was Catch of the Day and One
on One portrayed Sprirtg.

Although the only junior high
school entrant was LW Young,
the group pulled out all the
stops, earning 2003 points for
paying tribute to Tourism in the
Bahamas.

The highly anticipated senior
high section of the parade saw

Government High maintain its
title, capturing 2,265 points as it
took Bay Street back to the
International Cultural Festival.

The costumes showcased
dancing tents and young chiefs
who passed out banana bread,
conch fritters, bennie and
coconut cake to the crowd. |

Dancers were dressed in the
flowers of the Botanical Gar-
dens, where the festival takes
place.

Some costumes symbolised
Europe, South America and the
Caribbean.

Another crowd favourite
took second place — the Har-
bour Island All Age school. The
group paid tribute to Michael
Knowles Jr under the theme,
Exploring the wonders of the
Bahamas.

CR Walker came in third
winning 714 points under the
theme: A Knight’s Tale, which
featured a king bestowing
knighthood on several of his
subjects (dancers clad in silver)
followed by a celebration fea-
turing cake for the crowd. © *;

Rounding out the senior’,
RM Bailey scored 639 points.
Their theme was Good vs Evil,
the Choice Is Yours, with
dancers playing devils. ad
angels.

Harbour Island took bast
music and Government High
won best banner.

Tribune Staff Reporter

RADE and Industry Min-
ister Leslie Miller warned
that there needs to be care-
ful deliberation on the
question of whether the
Bahamas should become a full member
of the World Trade Organisation.
Speaking to The Tribune from a
World Trade Organisation (WTO) meet-
ing in Hong Kong, Mr Miller said if the
country was to fully implement some
WTO positions - like the elimination of
tariffs on goods from the European
Union (EU) - the Bahamas would be
“wiped out” overnight.

‘Another

“If the government was to reduce tar-
iffs on goods from Europe, where would
we get compensation from for those lost
funds?

“It’s impossible and it would also elim-
inate small enterprises in small coun-
tries,” he said.

The Bahamas currently is not a mem-
ber of the WTO, but does have “viewer”
status at its meetings.

Mr Miller said that if the Bahamas
does become a full member, it will have
to go along with decisions made by “the
developed world” in terms of trade and
tariff restrictions.

“The WTO is now seen by most of
the developing world as doing the oppo-
site of decreasing poverty. It is a fright-

ening prospect. They can make demands
on you that’can cripple your economy
and there is nothing you can do once
you've become a full-fledged member,”
he said.

Mr Miller said that markets in small
countries “will not only be eroded, but
eliminated” if major developed coun-
tries “have access to those markets by
having drastically reduced taxes imple-
mented to allow them in. It’s frighten-
ing.”

The minister said that the Bahamas is
in a unique position as it does not export
anything — except rum — in substantial
quantities.

The preferential tariffs currently
enjoyed by the African, Caribbean and

sli boosts Bahamian tourism

Pacific (ACP) countries will be removed
by WTO edict by 2007 on all major
exporting items — sugar, bananas, rum,
and rice.

As the ACP states share less than one
per cent of the global market, Mr Miller
said that the representatives from the
various countries were hopeful that the
tariff would at least be extended to 2010.

However, the attempt to change the
deadline was unsuccessful.

“The view was that because of this °

minute percentage that we control, that
the developed world would look at that
in a positive light and allow them to
retain their market access and retain
their preferential treatment,” he
explained.

Bahamasair still ying
to Abaco destination

BAHAMASAIR has not
stopped flights to Treasure Cay,
Abaco said Works and Utilities
Minister Bradley Roberts in a
release yesterday.

Mr Roberts was responding
to remarks made by former
prime minister Hubert Ingra-
ham at an FNM rally in Abaco.

Mr Ingraham spoke of the
dawn of a “new morning” if his
party is returned to govern-
ment.

He was quoted by The Tri-
bune as saying: “In that new
morning, a first order of busi-
ness then will be the necessary
upgrade and expansion of the
Treasure Cay Airport and the
return of Bahamasair flights to
Treasure Cay. After all its our
tax dollars which continue to
defray the losses of the nation-
al airline. The least we can
expect in return is service to our

airport!”

In his release, Mr Roberts
stated: “It is the remark about
Bahamasair ‘returning’ to Trea-
sure Cay that I take umbrage
with because it speaks of dere-
liction of duty on the part of
the fine staff of Bahamasair and
that of my caring government.”

The minister confirmed that
at “some time in the past”
Bahamasair did consider “the
termination (out sourcing) of
service to Treasure Cay Air-
port”.

Mr Roberts said however that
upon consultation with the res-
idents of Abaco, the govern-
ment and Bahamasair decided
against the move.

“So it is inaccurate for Mr
Ingraham to utter that service

was terminated, when in fact it .

would have expected that Mr
Ingraham would have said
something during the last bud-

minister said.

Mr Roberts said that he is
certain that Mr Ingraham’s con-
stituents are sorely disappointed
that he said nothing about his
North Abaco constituency dur-
ing the budget debate.

Important to know right from wrong

MARSHALL, Texas — As a parent, job
one after seeing that your children are fed,
clothed and housed is making sure that you
teach them one basic thing:

Right from wrong.

The R and W are far more important
than even those Three Rs that we hear so
much about. If your child doesn’t know
basic right from wrong, then reading isn’t
worth, well, the paper the words are print-
ed on.

Knowing right from wrong doesn’t mean
that your child will always choose right.
Not one of us ever does that, but even when
you don’t do the right thing, it is impor-
tant you know it is wrong and that you at
least admit that to yourself.

- You want your child to know that
because doing wrong has bad consequences

and this doesn’t have anything to do with ~

religion. If your child becomes accustomed
to doing wrong, chances are extremely high

they are going to live an unhappy life. Ifyou _

are religious you realise it could mean an
unhappy afterlife, too.

Right and wrong are absolutes for me.
I’m firmly on the side here of social con-
servatives who rebelled against so-called
situational ethics, the idea that, well, some-
times wrong is OK in the proper instance.

No... .

What is right today i is and has been right
forever. What is wrong somehow isn’t going
to change into being right, even if the pop-
ular culture says it is.

The excuse that “everybody does it,”
bears no weight. An act is either right or it
is wrong. Period. Sometimes, I admit, some
acts are close enough to the line that it is
difficult to tell at first glance, but if you
look hard enough, consider long enough,
you'll be able to tell. The line is not a dim
one, it is bright.

If you’ve learned right from wrong.

If you haven’t learned, then, yes, every
action is going to be difficult to determine.
You'll hem and haw and wonder and prob-
ably most of the time do the easy thing,
which is very often not the right thing.

_ If you haven’t learned right from wrong
the line isn’t bright, but darn near invisible.
That’s the way it is for a great many of the
people in prison today, but not only for

them. There are plenty of people in power
who have trouble seeing the line, or who
believe the line moves.

The line doesn’t move. Situational ethics
exists only in the minds of people who can’t
see the line.

All of this came to me in a rush the oth-
er day when J read a story that the United
States Senate was debating a bill over tor-
ture and whether it could ever be used by
an agent of the United States.

A debate over torture?

Then J read a story that a slim majority of
Americans believed that torture should be
allowed in “extreme” cases. :

A majority of citizens?

Then I read a column by conservative
columnist Thomas Sowell — the last person
I would have ever accused of believing in
situational ethics — who said we should
not rule out torture.

What is this?

Everyone who believes they can see the
line-between right and wrong answer this
question, without allowing yourself to think
about any situation other than the basic
fact:

Is torture right or is it wrong?

If you answered that it is right, go back to
class. But I know almost no one reading
this would answer that. We all know that it
is wrong.

If you said, well, it is wrong almost
always, except when... . Then you have just
engaged in situational ethics.

Jtis either wrong or it is right. Period.

If this nation wants to do what is right —
we do want to do that, J think — then we
will make the flat statement that it is not

_allowed. Ever. For any reason. In any situ-
‘ation. .

Even Saddam Hussein probably pelievss
that torture is wrong — except in certain sit-
uations.

The problem with situational ethics is
that, once you begin to think like that, the

“situations” just keep popping up.

Right and wrong. It is no mystery. Tor-
ture is on the wrong side of that bright line.
Let’s make sure we don’t lose sight of it.

am, editor and publisher of the Marshall
(Texas) News Messenger).

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THERE is no way that the
policy of this or any Bahamian
government can be allowed to
override the express provisions
of our constitution, particularly
when it relates to a fundamental
right.

The continued refusal of gov-
ernment to recognise the right
of casino workers of Paradise
Island to form a union, is a
direct violation of these work-
ers’ right to freedom of associ-
ation. The battle for this right
was fought by the PLP govern-
ment in the fifties and sixties,
and it is truly a sad thing to see
a PLP government kicking this
provision of the 1973 Indepen-
dence Order, our constitution,
in the teeth in this manner.

The reason given “ that it is
government’s policy in favour
of the investor’s wishes” is the
worst sellout I have ever heard.
So not even our constitution can
protect us from the all impor-
tant demands of ‘ the investor.”
I wonder who this country
belongs to, the Bahamians or
the investors?

And how can a government
so blatantly break its own
pledge to uphold the constitu-
tion? This can only be the
actions of a government that
thinks that it is above the law, a
government prepared to ignore
the supremacy of the constitu-
tion, a government which refus-
es to enforce the immigration
laws on the books!

The issue of how the funda-
mental rights of constitutions
like ours are to be interpreted,
and specifically those provisions
that allow unionisation of work-
ers, has already been decided
in Privy Council decisions.
These are taught as standard to
law students in this region. I am
positive that the present PLP
government that is full of
lawyers knows this. They are
not acting in ignorance, no, it
is worse than that. They are
pursuing a directly and deliber-

ately illegal and unconstitu- |

tional policy.

How can a policy override a
protective constitutional provi-
sion written in black and white?
I have never heard anything like
this. Mr Peet was so bold as to
state clearly on local radio that

_it was his government’s policy to

not allow these workers to exer-
cise their right to unionise.

My mouth dropped open! I
thought that I had not heard
right. He attempted to explain
this with some flimsy excuse

based on improbable security
concerns.

I have never heard such
absolute nonsense given as an

explanation by a trained lawyer. °

Not even one of my first year
students in law would utter such
weak and reasons in an attempt
to justify breaching a major con-
stitutional provision!

I cry shame on this or any

government that tramples in
such a callous way on the rights
of so important a section of its
people as its workers.
: What about the unions in all
this? Instead of taking action
against this fundamental breach
of the rights of its designated
constituency, they have
remained silent. The union
leaders of the last generation
would have taken to the streets
to protest this flagrant slap in
the face of the workers. Is it
that the union leaders are in
bed with this government to
such a degree that they are will-
ing to turn a blind eye to this
gross insult?

If the established political
parties will stay silent as regards
this flagrant violation of our
constitution it is time for the
formation of a true Nationalist
party, dedicated exclusively to
defending the interests of
Bahamians. A good name
would be the Bahamian Nation-
alist Party. Its motto, “The
Bahamas for Bahamians”.

Its platform:

1) A strong immigration pol-

icy based on no new permits, a
line drawn south of Inagua, and
a review of all current work per-
mits.



‘

2) A Free enterprise, small-
er government, economic poli-
cy.

3) An ‘interest of thé
Bahamas first’ foreign policy;
based in a USA instead of
Socialist preference.

4) A regional policy of no to
CSME as an extended political
and economic unit.

5) A strong pro-environ-
mental preservation policy.

6) A strong pro-life policy to
promote the birth of more
Bahamians.

7) A return of the immov-
able properties act in a modi-
fied form. >

8) Economic diversificatiog
to the maximum degree possi*
ble under.a twenty-year plan to
produce greater economic inde-
pendence. g

9) Improved internal secur
ty and more aggressive fight
against crime.

10) A health policy of no
health tax, instead a partner-
ship with social partners such
as the unions and the churches
to provide needed health phys:

_ical plant.

11) A specific youth policy to
rescue our youth and engage
them in positive programmes.

12) A more relevant educa:
tion policy, emphasising skills
and vocational training as being
equal to pure academic attain-
ments. .

These would be my twelve
fundamental points which’
nationalist party can put for:
ward as being in the interest.of
our people.

What do you think?

S part of Amer-

ica’s continued

effort to assist

the Bahamas in

the fight against

illegal drugs, the US Embassy

donated two bullet proof vests

to the Drug Enforcement Unit.

At a press conference at the

US Embassy yesterday, Ambas-

sador John Rood presented the

gear, saying that it would pro-

tect individuals who “put their
lives on the line.”

Ata cost of $2,500 each, the

vests will be used by the marine
unit of the DEU.

Ambassador says drug flow

through Bahamas down from
70-80% to ‘less than 10%’

Besides providing body
armour, the vests are equipped
with a flotation device, flash-
light, a holster for a gun, cooling
packs and a “Cyalume” lumi-
nescent stick.

Mr Rood pointed out that the
partnership between the
Bahamas and the US in the
fight against illegal drugs has
been very successful.

“We have dramatically

reduced the flow of drugs
through the Bahamas. It is now
less than 10 per cent, where it
used to be 70 or 80 per cent,” he
said.

Mr Rood said that in order
to remain at this level, it is vital
that both countries remain alert
and continue to work together.

“T am very pleased, but the
key is to not let down our guard.
If we let down our guard and





allow the Operations Bahamas
Turks and Caicos (OPBAT)
assets and our attention to be
drawn elsewhere, the traffick-
ers would use that void in our
assets to take advantage of it
and reappear in no time,” said
Mr Rood.

He added that the United
States respects the justice sys-
tem in the Bahamas and the
country’s extradition law.

Mr Rood said the recent
meeting between OPBAT par-
ticipants was “positive.”

“It illustrates the strength of
the partnership between the
two countries. One thing that I
thought was very interesting to
note, is that our law enforce-

NATIONAL Tourism Week
will be held from January 8 to
13 next year, under the theme
"My Bahamas: to a common,
loftier goal".

The 2006 conference will fea-
ture a new venture that allows
participants to earn a Continu-
ing Education Credit (CEU)
from the College of the
Bahamas (COB).

The Ministry of Tourism and
COB announced that delegates
participating in “master class-
es” during National Tourism
Week will be presented with a
CEU. The classes are geared
towards professional develop-
ment and industry-specific train-
ing.

We take pride in the fact
that the college will be validat-
ing the master classes, as
tourism is the primary engine
of our economy," said Janet
Johnson, tourism special pro-
jects director.

The master classes begin on
Tuesday, January 10, at the
Wyndham Nassau Resort on

Cable Beach. Each class will be

led by an industry panel of
experts.

Delegates will receive an in-
depth perspective and advance
their skills in a number of areas,
the ministry said.

For each master class com-
pleted during the conference,
participants will receive a cer-
tificate of attendance.

Delegates who obtain a cred-
it can use it to establish a CEU
record, which can be used to
further their pursuit of higher
academic certification.

There will be a fee of $25 per
session, with all proceeds ear-
marked for the Cacique Schol-
arship Fund.

The master classes that will
take place throughout the day
are:

e Energy conservation and
trade show

e Human resource develop-
ment - innovation and best
practices | '

° The power of branding for

your company or organisation.

¢ The best use of information
management technology to
increase your business

¢ Transportation - planning
for the future

¢ Myths and models of event

management

e Implications of new taxi
exempt status 2006 on Bahamas
meetings/conferences or con-
vention business

° So you want to be a celebri-
ty chef?

e E-commerce

¢ So you want to be in the
movies?

"This particular project is
another important step in this
regard as skill development is
a major factor in service quality
especially in developing coun-
tries," said Ms Johnson.

The master classes will be
preceded by a careers fair on
January 9 at the Kendal G L
Isaacs gymnasium, a church cer-
emony at St Barnabas, a procla-
mation in Rawson Square, and
a "going public" town hall
meeting.

Wednesday, January 11, will
feature special keynote speaker

Professor Rex Nettleford, vice |

chancellor of the University of
the West Indies.

Over the next three days, a
wide variety of topics related to
the improvement of the tourism
industry will be covered.

Finally, at 8pm on Friday,
January 13, the 10th annual

‘Bringing some soul’

ELDERLY folk from Bain
Town will be entertained to a
special Christmas treat today - a
bid by the local pastor to “bring
some soul back into the com-
munity.”

Rev C B Moss is urging more
emphasis on the positive.

And he says the 16th annual
senior citizens’ programme to
be held at his Mount Olive Bap-

tist Church at 2pm today isa»

good example of what he
means.

The old folk will be enter-
tained by Bahamian bands and
celebrated singer Ronnie Butler
as part of Mount Olive’s cam-
paign to increase community
spirit.

He sees the junction of Mead-
ow and Augusta Streets as the
focus of the local community
and wants to put his church at



back into Bain Town

-the centre of Bain Town life.

“We see too much about
crime and not enough about the
positive things that are going

on,” he told The Tribune yes-
-terday.

_ “We are trying to put some
soul back into the communiti-
ties. We are trying to create a
town centre where people can
meet.”

He added: “Our church caters
for the whole of Bain Town.
No-one who comes to our

. church looking for food is going

to go away without something.”
Today’s event is expected to
attract a large turnout.

ment people came out and said
that the Bahamas has one of
the best relationships from a
law enforcement perspective.”
He noted that the partner-
ship between the two countries
is not limited to the fight against
drugs, but extends also to com-
bating illegal immigration, deal-
ing with money laundering, and
fighting financial crime.

purple charity wrist-bands
inscribed “Hope”, the nine stu-
dents raised money both in. and
out of school.

Students were sranted an
exception to the dress code.to
wear the band in an effort to
raise awareness for the need for
disaster relief and the need:to
bring hope to disaster victims.

Yesterday, Lyford Cay
teacher William K Schlei sent
a letter to the American Red
Cross and US Ambassador to
the Bahamas John Rood about
the effort.

In the letter Mr Schlei, who is
new to the school said: “I-was
impressed and delighted when
my homeroom students insisted
that the class take action to sup-
port the relief effort.

“Two students, Miss Natasha
Vazquez and Miss Jordan
Kemp, proposed the idea of
acquiring wrist-bands and using
them to solicit donations to the
American Red Cross.”

He explained that these two
students arranged the purchase
of the wrist bands in the US and .
their delivery to the Bahamas.

“Soliciting donations. both
within the Lyford Cay School
community and the Nassau

community at large, they suc-

ceeded in raising $1,601, which
has been forwarded to the
American Red Cross.

“T am justly proud of.the ini-
tiative demonstrated by these

. students, of the community ser-

vice effort, the learning experi-
ence they proposed for them-

‘selves, and J count myself lucky

indeed ‘to be their homeroom
teacher,” Mr Schlei said.

The students who took part in
the effort were: Shaunda Bly-
den, Courtney Bobbitt,
Michelle Dietrich, Gabrielle
Fawkes, Amber Francis, Jordan
Kemp, Brandon Sims, Fritz
Stubbs, Natasha Vazquez. ..°

tural development.

CMEx's wide range of sponsors and support-

‘erpart International and hosted by the Bahamas
Ministry of Tourism, examined the theme
"Exploring Niche Markets for Caribbean
Tourism". Dynamic, interactive exchanges were
spiced by interventions on topics such as strategies
fg}-targeting the African American and other
niehe markets, involvement of the Diaspora, the
role of the Black Media, institutional arrange-
ments, communications and ethics, preserving
the environment, and focused product and cul-

power at 4.35pm, said Mr Saun-
ders.

“This time BEC did not noti-
fy us, so I think it was unex-
pected, something that just hap-
pened,” he said.

Kevin Basden, general man-
ager of BEC, told The Tribune
that an accident was the cause
of the unexpected power cut.

“A vehicle driving on Wind-
sor Field Road hit an electrical
pole, and caused the power out-
age. But we were able to restore
power to the area within the
hour,” he said.

However, Mr Saunders said

LOCAL NEWS —

adar power failure

that the airport’s radar was not
up and running until 9pm that
night.

He said the radar failure was
an extraordinary occurrence as
the back-up power system failed
as well.

“The generator saved us
many a time. Normally the gen-
erator just switches on with only
flicker. I don’t know what hap-
pened (on Thursday). It was
just a freak thing,” he said.

The almost five-hour long
loss of radar led to numerous
delays of flights leaving Nassau.

Mr Saunders explained that

Pressure for anti-drug resources

FROM page one

“T will continue to make the
case that we cannot afford to
let our guard down here, but I
‘also need to be able to make
the case that we are making the
best use possible of the
resources at hand,” he said.
tis Mr Rood said he appreciated
the:continued strong commit-
gmeént of the government to the
‘eduntries’ joint counter nar-
ebtics efforts.

e“4These efforts have resulted
“ni Significant achievements in
Our shared. fight against drug
tr&fficking throughout the
‘Bahamas. It was not that long
‘ago that the bulk of the cocaine
entering the US came through
the Bahamas,” he said.
~. Today, he’ said, experts say

‘that less than 10 per cent of ©

‘cocaine entering US enters
through the’ Bahamas. ~~
“This dramatic decline
‘demonstrates what can be
‘achieved when our countries
‘Yoinforces in the face of a com-
‘avon ‘threat. Now, while we
-should be pleased with our suc-
cesses, we must also look at the
‘challenges we face moving for-
owartd,” the ambassador said.

-‘Despite this, however, Mr -

Mitchell pointed out that an
‘Hemispheric assessment done
‘by-Inter American Drug Abuse
‘Géntrol Commission (CICAD),
‘the arm of the OAS responsible
‘for:all. aspect of drugs, indicates
“that drug trafficking in coun-

tries in the hemisphere is on the

‘ificrease.
ce“SGiven this sobering hemi-
“spheric evaluation on illicit

drugs ‘and the partnership now

- established between narco-traf-
‘fickers and those who deal in
terrorism, migrants, and arms,

we cannot let up in our cooper- °

“ative efforts,” he said.
-/Mr Mitchell said that the
-countries “dare not ease our
space” because earlier years
“have shown how achievement
‘Of: positive results in interdic-
tion have given rise to a false
belief that “we had won this
war”.
.7Our confidence translated
into the removal of assets and
reduction in’funding with
almost disastrous results,” Mr
Mitchell said.
© Mr Rood said that OPBAT’s
stiecess in reducing the flow of
cocaine through the Bahamas
to,less than 10 per cent leads
some to argue that the Bahamas
no-longer requires US attention
and resources.
«However, the ambassador
said that should vigilance be
teduced the Bahamas could
Otice again become the pre-
ferred route for drug traffick-
éts' looking for the easiest way
to:move their goods from South
Ainerica to the US.
2.Since the beginning of 2005,
the United States has funded
more than $4 million worth of
taining for more than 900 offi-
gials encompassing over 20,000
man-hours.. Mr Rood said that
the recipients of this training
have included members of the
RBDF, RBPF, Customs and
Immigration.
* “My goal is to continue the
US government's commitment
fo provide training and techni-
éal assistance. Such training, I
believe, is the best means to

strengthen the capability of our

Bahamian law enforcement
partners,” he said.
«. The ambassador pointed out

that training provides knowl-
edge, expertise and boosts to
morale that pay dividends long
after the training ends.

“We must continue to adapt
in the face of new challenges

the airport had to direct flights
with the use of non-radar pro-
ceclures. pt

‘What that means is that the
tower has to request the pilot
to give his exact position, and
then direct him. The pilot in
turn follows the request and
notifies the tower of his new
position. On radar its easier
because the plane’s signal sim-
ply shows you a flight’s posi-
tion,” he said.

Mr Saunders said that while
this method does not heighten
the risk for the flight, it requires
a Jot more time.

cruise to victory

B@ TENNIS
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

MARVIN Rolle and
Devin Mullings, who played
number one and two on the
past Davis Cup team, made
easy work of their opponents
on the first day of the
Bahamas Lawn Tennis Asso-
ciation’s trials for next year’s
team.

Playing out of Pool A on
‘Friday at the National Ten-
nis Centre, Rolle knocked
off Jamaal Hanna 6-0, 6-1,
while Mullings defeated
Jonathan Hepburn 6-2, 6-0
in pool B.

In the other two matches
played in the first session,
H’Cone Thompson got by
Jyles Turnquest 6-3, 6-0 in
pool A and Chris Eldon beat
Matthew Sands 6-4, 6-2 in
pool B.

US Open Junior champi-
on Ryan Sweeting was
scheduled to play Hanna and
Mullings was.to take on
Sands in two later matches.

The trials will.continue
today and wrap up on Sun-
day as the BLTA put togeth-
er the national team that will
travel to El Salvador in June
next year for the American
Zone III Davis Cup tie.

Challenge

All of the players, with the
exception of Hepburn, are
off to school or are playing
on the international circuit.

Hanna, one of the top local |

players, said he knows it’s
going to be a tough challenge
for him, but he’s going to
give it his best shot.

_ “JT didn’t play up to the lev-
el that I’m capable of play-
ing,” Hanna admitted. “I
played against one of the
best players in the country,
so J didn’t have that much
expectation, but to play
good.”

Hanna, who avoided get-
ting blanked in the fifth
game of the first set when he
held serve, said he may have
been a little too tight going
into the match.

“T know I’m not yet ready
for Davis Cup, so I’m just
going to try and get as much
as experience as I.can,” said
Hanna, the youngest mem-
ber of the players trying out
at age 18.

Mullings, a member of the
Ohio State Buckeyes’ tennis



LTA trials for
Davis Cup team



team, said he’s excited about
being home and playing for
another spot on the Davis
Cup team.

While he didn’t get much
of a challenge from Hanna,
Mullings: said he’s been
working on all aspects of his
game and he’s prepared to
play at a high level.

“I’m just going to go out
and playing 100 per cent,”
he projected. “That’s all I
can do.”

In his match, 24-year-old
Rolle didn’t have to work up
too much of a sweat, as he

wasted very little time in dis-
-posing: of Hepburn.--...

“J don’t think I played as
well as I would have liked. I
just kept the ball in play,” he
insisted. “He’s at Boise State,
so I expected him to play
better. I guess he was a bit
nervous.” ;

As for the rest of the trials,
Rolle said he just has to “go
out there” and “give it my
all” and hopefully at the end
of Sunday, he will be back
on the team.

Playing in his first outdoor
match since returning to
school in August, Hepburn,
also 18, said it took him a lit-
tle longer than expected to
make the adjustment.

“I was a little nervous.
Everything is going so fast.
I have to try and slow it
down,” he said of Rolle’s
uptempo game. ;

“T hope to work on some
things and play better tomor-
row.”

Jyles Turnquest, a 19-year-
old student of St. Thomas
University, was beaten by
H’Cone Thompson, despite
playing promisingly at the
start.

“T started off pretty good.
My serve was on for the first
couple of games,” said Turn-

quest, who had a chance to

break Thompson in the sixth
game, trailing 3-2 in the first
set.

“But I went into a mental
lapse after that and every-
thing went down hill after
that. I have a tough road the
rest over the next two days,

so I hope to get better.”

Thompson, a 24-year-old
pro player/coach in Wash-
ington DC, said, once he got
over the jitterbugs, it was
smooth sailing the rest of the
way.

“In the beginning it was
kind of rough getting used
to playing outdoors,” he
declared. “But I started to
get more comfortable, win-
ning more first serves and
using more forehand, it was
alright.

“But I know it’s going to
be a tough weekend. I just
have to focus on my next
match. So I just want to go
out there and pull off a vic-
tory and then worry about
the next guy because there’s
a lot of good guys out here.”

Injury

Eldon, the national cham-
pion, had to struggle a bit in
his first match back after sit-
ting out the past few months
with an injury in his fresh-
man season at Indiana State
University.

“It was good to get back
on the court,” he stressed.

“There’s a bunch of tough

players. It looks like it does-
n’t matter who goes, we will
have a pretty good team
because we have a lot of
good players here.”

Having missed the past
three ties, Eldon, 20, said he
would like nothing better
than to make the team next
year.

Using a strong forehand,
Eldon managed to go up a
break in the first game and
he was able to hold serve the

_rest of the match for the vic-

tory.

“He just served better than
me today,” said Sands, who
will begin his studies at Old
Dominion University in Jan-
uary. “I though I played
pretty good. He just served
better.”

Sands, 18, lost to Eldon in
the national open, but he
won the AID Clay Court
championship title.

World’s

number

three Sweeting is
feeling confident

@ TENNIS
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

BACK home as the number three
ranked player in the world, US Open
junior champion Ryan Sweeting is look-
ing forward to the Bahamas Lawn Ten-
nis Association’s trials for the Davis
Cup team.

“J just want to play my best. I know
there will be some good matches
because everybody’s on top of their
game,” said Sweeting, who was sched-
uled to play his first match in the trials



“I just want to
play my best. I
know there will
be some good
matches because
everybody’s on
top of their game.”



Ryan Sweeting

on Friday against Jonathan Hanna.

“So I’m hoping to do well and hope-
fully make it on the team again.”

With his stock soaring higher than all
of the players because of his ITF rank-
ings, Sweeting knows that_all eyes will
be on him, but he admits that he doesn’t
feel pressured to play any harder than
he normally does.

“T don’t feel that much pressure. I’m

used to playing at home, so I’m com- ,

fortable,” he stressed. “I’m still confi-
dent after my year, so I’m feeling good.

I don’t feel any pressure. I’m just anx-
ious to get back on the court.”

After his stunning victory at the US
Open in Flushing Meadows, New York
in September, Sweeting went on to the
Chanda Rubin Pan American Closed
Championships where he won in
three sets over American top ranked
Donald Young in October in Tulsa,
Oklahoma.

Despite the disappointment of the last
two tournaments, Sweeting still ended

‘the year ranked as the number three
player, a feat he said-he was thrilled to
have achieved.

Work

“J couldn’t ask for anything better,”
he said. “It took six years of a lot of
hard work to get where I’m at. I want to
thank my mom, Cindy, my coach, Neko,
and all my friends and family, who were
there 100 per cent for me.”

At age 18, Sweeting will be enrolling
at the University of Miami in January,
but after a semester or two, he will con-
sider his options as a professional.

“It definitely will happen,” he insist-
ed about his looming pro career. “We
will just see what happens after the first
year.”

In the meantime, Sweeting said he
just wants to get through the trials this
weekend and secure his spot on the
team next year.

“A lot of the players are playing pret-
ty good,” he charged. “Even though
some people are favoured, it doesn’t
matter.

“You still have to come out here and
play hard.”

Sweeting will be in action with the
other eight players vying for a spot on
the Davis Cup team that will travel to
El Salvador in June for the American
Zone III competition.

@ BASKETBALL
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

AS THE action in the Father
Marcian Peters Invitational Bas-
ketball Tournament heats up,
more teams are facing the pain
of elimination.

Two of the teams to be ousted
in the double elimination for-
mat at the Kendal Isaacs Gym-
nasium on Friday were the
South Andros Cheetahs junior
girls and San Salvador senior
girls.

Playing for the first time in
any organised basketball, the
Cheetahs gave it a gallant effort,
but fell victim to the CC Sweet-
ing Scorpions 16-8 in a do-or-
die game for both teams.

“Against CC Sweeting, it was
very interesting,” said South
Andros’ coach. “It’s the first
time that we ever played a junior
girls team, so it was a good expe-
rience for them.

“But they are eight and ninth
graders, so hopefully we will
have a good solid girls basketball
team to work with in the future.”

| Push

’

Glendieka Forbes, who played
an all-around game trying to
give the Cheetahs the extra push
they needed to get over the
hump, couldn’t agree more.

“J feel happy about our effort.
We just came here to enjoy our-
selves,” Forbes said. “For our
first time, it was good for us to
see where we are.

“Hopefully when we come
back next year, we will be look-
ing at not just winning the junior
girls division, but the senior girls
as' well.”

Forbes, who is expected to be
back in the junior girls division
next year, scored two points,
while Anya Smith led their
offensive attack with four.

The Scorpions, on the other
hand, were just too much for the
Cheetahs to handle. Sitting on
the bubble after losing their first
game, CC Sweeting reeled off

Father Marcian

Peters Invitational





their third straight victory to stay
alive.

Keva Barry, whose jumper at
the buzzer was not counted in
their two-point loss to the SC
McPherson Sharks, didn’t have
to wait on any last minute hero-
ics.

She canned eight, including
six in the first half as the Scor-
pions rolled out to a 8-2 advan-
tage at the half. Lorinta

‘Seraphin added four and Ter-

rinique Rogers chipped in with
two. :

Coach Tracy McKenzie said
he was pleased with CC Sweet-
ing’s performance.

“That was a tough South
Andros team,” he admitted.
“I’m just happy that we came
out on top. We played hard and
we fought right to the end.”

South Andros managed to

.come within two, 8-6, thanks to a

pair of free throws from Forbes
and a jumper from Smith on a
costly turnover from CC Sweet-
ing to start off the third.

Forbes even came up with a
big block shot that had the fans
cheering loudly in the gym. But
Barry would get the ball and, on
her crossover dribble, she hit a
20-foot jumper that pushed the
Scorpions ahead 10-6 at the end
of the period.

In the fourth, South Andros
had numerous opportunities to
score, but they couldn’t get the
ball to fall in the hole as CC
Sweeting managed to convert a
few more baskets to stay ahead.

In their senior girls division,
CC Sweeting didn’t have any
problems putting away San Sal-
vador as they used a balanced
scoring attack in their lop-sided
victory.

Just like the junior girls game,
the Cobras had to win or face

elimination after losing to the

CI Gibson Rattlers. Instead,
they sent San Salvador packing
with their second straight defeat.

Shenella Sweeting, Garcia
Sweeting, Ruthann Simms and
Crystal Dean all scored eight
points in the win for the Cobras.
Sweeting said it was a perfor-
mance they needed.

“Our team came out more
defensively. Today was the first
day that we really used the plays
we practised on at school,”
Sweeting said. “We just need to
run more.”

CC Sweeting certainly ran the
ball against San Salvador.

Performance

They had posted a 13-2 mar-
gin at the half as they. out-
rebounded and out-hussled San
Salvador in a dominating per-
formance. Coach Stephen
Brown admitted that they were
out-matched in all aspects of the
game.

“T don’t think they were up to
the challenge,” Brown stressed.
“We really wanted to win the
game. I tried to motivate the
players. We have a slogan that
says ‘no pressure,’ so I didn’t try
to put any on them.

-“They were coming around
for the first 6-7 minutes of the
game, but everything just started
to fall apart after that. I don’t
know what happened.”

Brown, however, noted that
he had to bring up some of his
junior players to make up a
senior team, so that may have
played a factor in their downfall
as they couldn’t match-up with
CC Sweeting.

The tournament, sponsored
by the Ministry of Youth, Sports
and Culture, will wrap up today.

Bahamas must
justify need
for funding

By RUPERT MISSICK Jr
Chief Reperter

CONTINUING budgetary

pressure in the US requires that
member countries of Operation
Bahamas Turks and Caicos con-
tinually examine how efficient
ly they fight narcotics trafficking
in The Bahamas.

The countries must be pre-
pared to justify their use of
resources and assets to the deci-
sion makers in Washington, US
Ambassador John Rood said
during the opening of the joint
narcotics task force meeting at
the Attorney General’s office
yesterday .

The annual meeting features
key players in OPBAT and var-
ious government and national
security officials from both the
US and the Bahamas.

Heading the Bahamas team
was Foreign Affairs Minister
Fred Mitchell.

Mr Mitchell said that the link
between smuggling of migrants
and illicit drugs continues to be
of grave concern to the
Bahamas. He requested that the
ambit of the meetings be

expanded to include the subject"

of migration.

Mr Rood, briefly mentioning
the issue of illegal migration,
said that it is appropriate that
the countries discuss the issue as
migrant traffickers often move
illegal narcotics along with their
migrant passengers.

“Coast Guard assets have
played a key role in interdicting

/

both illegal migrants and nar-
cotics heading to The Bahamas
and to the US. Illegal migration
creates great economic costs to
the Bahamian government.

“I hope that by openly dis-
cussing the challenges we face
today we can-work:- together to
find the best, most cost efficient
and effective way, to defeat our
common drug-trafficking threat.
This is a fight we cannot afford
to lose. It wasn't that long ago
that the Bahamas was synony-
mous with cocaine trafficking. It
is our combined task to ensure
that this never occurs again,”
he said.

OPBAT, said Mr Rood, is
one of the true success stories in
the. war on drugs and is a mod-
el for multilateral cooperation
that is now being emulated in
other parts of the world.

However, this success does
come at a price, he said.

“The US government spends
more than thirty million dollars
a year in support of OPBAT.
This funding comes from a
number of different US agen-

‘ cies, each of which faces its own

funding constraints,” he said.

The ambassador said, for
example, the State Departmen-
t's Narcotics Affairs Section
faced the prospect of a loss of
half of its funding in 2005.

However, intervention by Mr
Mitchell and himself helped
turn this around.

TRIBUNE Feature Editor
Yolanda Deleveaux was one of
three Caribbean journalists to
be recognised for their excel-
lence in journalism, during the
7th Caribbean Media Exchange
on Sustainable Tourism (CMEx
VII), held in Nassau earlier this
month.

The Bahamas, St Kitts and
Nevis and the Caribbean Dias-
pora in New York took the
spotlight at the finale of the
2005 CMEx Caribbean Media
Awards. Joining Ms Deleveaux
to receive top honours during
the awards presentation were
Guyanese-born Clive Bacchus,
general manger of WINN FM
in St Kitts and Nevis, and
Brooklyn-based Glenda Cado-
gan, from Trinidad, who free-
lances for outlets such as
Caribbean Life and the New
York Daily News.

"Each of these journalists
has demonstrated a strong com-

mitment to their trade, and they
understand the importance of
sustainable tourism develop-
ment to the Caribbean region,"
said Dr Basil Springer, chair-
man of Counterpart Caribbean,
co-producers of the CMEx
series of meetings.

According to Dr Springer,
both Counterpart International
and Counterpart Caribbean are
committed to recognising excel-
lence in the media, with both
serving as key Caribbean devel-
opment partners. "The media
are internal auditors for social
partnership," said Dr Springer
who encouraged reporters
across the region to be "bold
and brave" in investigating the
news, pursuing the truth, and
highlighting the positive aspects
of Caribbean life.

Abducted
man: police

search

By NATARIO MCKENZIE

' THE search continues for
one of two men who were
abducted from their residence
off East Street on Thursday,
beaten and then robbed.
According to police press liai-
son officer Walter Evans,
around 6.30pm on Thursday a
25-year-old man and his room-
mate were accosted at their
house off East Street by a group
of men, two of whom had hand-
guns while two others had

‘knives,

The group reportedly forced
the residents into a black
coloured vehicle and took them
to the Tower Heights area
where they robbed and beat
them. According to Mr Evans,
the roommate has not yet been
found. Mr Evans said that fur-
ther investigations into the inci-
dent would determine whether
or not the incident was gang
related.

Mama’s Cafe on John F
Kennedy Drive was robbed yes-
terday according to police
reports. According to Mr Evans
around 3pm yesterday two men
ordered meals from the eatery.
After paying for the meals the
men reportedly produced a
handgun and robbed the estab-
lishment of an undetermined
amount of cash. Both robbers
escaped on foot.

Thursday’s radar failure

ST Thomas More and Gov-
ernment High School both
defended their titles as Junior
Junkanoo champions in what
was a dazzling display by the
nation’s youth on Thursday
night.

Bay Street was packed with
onlookers as the various schools
performed their hearts out,
leaving no doubt that the future
of Junkanoo is secure.

The crowd was so impressed
that throughout the evening,
spectators could be heard say-
ing, “This look’s like Boxing
Day”.

The evening began with the
youngest performers — the pre-
schoolers.

One on One pre- -school won
the category with 1,366 points.
The theme was Ten Years of
Educational Service and cos-
tumes featured building blocks
with numbers and letters. One
on One also captured the best
music award.

Second place went to Kidz
Care who got 1,261 points for:
Exploring Atlantis Under the
Sea.

In the elementary division:
the battle came down to rivals
St Thomas More and Our
Lady’s Primary.

For the second year in a row,

St Thomas More defended its“

title, earning 2238 points.

The judges were blown away
by the school’s portrayal of A
Goombay Summer in Nassau,
which was designed as a tribute
to the Ministry of Youth.

The crowd was thrilled to see
the famous Goombay face on
all the costumes as the young-
sters danced their way up Bay
Street.

The group also captured best
music competition.

Our Lady’s theme: So many
islands So Much Fun, It’s Hip
To Hop To The Bahamas
earned them second place with
2,048 points.

Third place went to Mabel
Walker Primary, as they invited
Sponge Bob Squarepants and
all his friends to visit the
Bahamas. They received 1,723
points.

Fourth and fifth places went
to Revere Academy (1627
points) and One on One Pri-
mary (1492 points).

Revere Academy’s theme
was Catch of the Day and One
on One portrayed Sprirtg.

Although the only junior high
school entrant was LW Young,
the group pulled out all the
stops, earning 2003 points for
paying tribute to Tourism in the
Bahamas.

The highly anticipated senior
high section of the parade saw

Government High maintain its
title, capturing 2,265 points as it
took Bay Street back to the
International Cultural Festival.

The costumes showcased
dancing tents and young chiefs
who passed out banana bread,
conch fritters, bennie and
coconut cake to the crowd. |

Dancers were dressed in the
flowers of the Botanical Gar-
dens, where the festival takes
place.

Some costumes symbolised
Europe, South America and the
Caribbean.

Another crowd favourite
took second place — the Har-
bour Island All Age school. The
group paid tribute to Michael
Knowles Jr under the theme,
Exploring the wonders of the
Bahamas.

CR Walker came in third
winning 714 points under the
theme: A Knight’s Tale, which
featured a king bestowing
knighthood on several of his
subjects (dancers clad in silver)
followed by a celebration fea-
turing cake for the crowd. © *;

Rounding out the senior’,
RM Bailey scored 639 points.
Their theme was Good vs Evil,
the Choice Is Yours, with
dancers playing devils. ad

Tribune Staff Reporter

RADE and Industry Min-
ister Leslie Miller warned
that there needs to be care-
ful deliberation on the
question of whether the
Bahamas should become a full member
of the World Trade Organisation.
Speaking to The Tribune from a
World Trade Organisation (WTO) meet-
ing in Hong Kong, Mr Miller said if the
country was to fully implement some
WTO positions - like the elimination of
tariffs on goods from the European
Union (EU) - the Bahamas would be
“wiped out” overnight.

‘Another

“If the government was to reduce tar-
iffs on goods from Europe, where would
we get compensation from for those lost
funds?

“It’s impossible and it would also elim-
inate small enterprises in small coun-
tries,” he said.

The Bahamas currently is not a mem-
ber of the WTO, but does have “viewer”
status at its meetings.

Mr Miller said that if the Bahamas
does become a full member, it will have
to go along with decisions made by “the
developed world” in terms of trade and
tariff restrictions.

“The WTO is now seen by most of
the developing world as doing the oppo-
site of decreasing poverty. It is a fright-

ening prospect. They can make demands
on you that’can cripple your economy
and there is nothing you can do once
you've become a full-fledged member,”
he said.

Mr Miller said that markets in small
countries “will not only be eroded, but
eliminated” if major developed coun-
tries “have access to those markets by
having drastically reduced taxes imple-
mented to allow them in. It’s frighten-
ing.”

The minister said that the Bahamas is
in a unique position as it does not export
anything — except rum — in substantial
quantities.

The preferential tariffs currently
enjoyed by the African, Caribbean and

sli boosts Bahamian tourism

Pacific (ACP) countries will be removed
by WTO edict by 2007 on all major
exporting items — sugar, bananas, rum,
and rice.

As the ACP states share less than one
per cent of the global market, Mr Miller
said that the representatives from the
various countries were hopeful that the
tariff would at least be extended to 2010.

However, the attempt to change the
deadline was unsuccessful.

“The view was that because of this °

minute percentage that we control, that
the developed world would look at that
in a positive light and allow them to
retain their market access and retain
their preferential treatment,” he
explained.

Bahamasair still ying
to Abaco destination

BAHAMASAIR has not
stopped flights to Treasure Cay,
Abaco said Works and Utilities
Minister Bradley Roberts in a
release yesterday.

Mr Roberts was responding
to remarks made by former
prime minister Hubert Ingra-
ham at an FNM rally in Abaco.

Mr Ingraham spoke of the
dawn of a “new morning” if his
party is returned to govern-
ment.

He was quoted by The Tri-
bune as saying: “In that new
morning, a first order of busi-
ness then will be the necessary
upgrade and expansion of the
Treasure Cay Airport and the
return of Bahamasair flights to
Treasure Cay. After all its our
tax dollars which continue to
defray the losses of the nation-
al airline. The least we can
expect in return is service to our

airport!”

In his release, Mr Roberts
stated: “It is the remark about
Bahamasair ‘returning’ to Trea-
sure Cay that I take umbrage
with because it speaks of dere-
liction of duty on the part of
the fine staff of Bahamasair and
that of my caring government.”

The minister confirmed that
at “some time in the past”
Bahamasair did consider “the
termination (out sourcing) of
service to Treasure Cay Air-
port”.

Mr Roberts said however that
upon consultation with the res-
idents of Abaco, the govern-
ment and Bahamasair decided
against the move.

“So it is inaccurate for Mr
Ingraham to utter that service

was terminated, when in fact it .

exists to this very day. If termi-
nation of services were true, I

would have expected that Mr
Ingraham would have said
something during the last bud-
get debate to this matter,” the
minister said.

Mr Roberts said that he is
certain that Mr Ingraham’s con-
stituents are sorely disappointed
that he said nothing about his
North Abaco constituency dur-
ing the budget debate.

Important to know right from wrong

MARSHALL, Texas — As a parent, job
one after seeing that your children are fed,
clothed and housed is making sure that you
teach them one basic thing:

Right from wrong.

The R and W are far more important
than even those Three Rs that we hear so
much about. If your child doesn’t know
basic right from wrong, then reading isn’t
worth, well, the paper the words are print-
ed on.

Knowing right from wrong doesn’t mean
that your child will always choose right.
Not one of us ever does that, but even when
you don’t do the right thing, it is impor-
tant you know it is wrong and that you at
least admit that to yourself.

- You want your child to know that
because doing wrong has bad consequences

and this doesn’t have anything to do with ~

religion. If your child becomes accustomed
to doing wrong, chances are extremely high

they are going to live an unhappy life. Ifyou _

are religious you realise it could mean an
unhappy afterlife, too.

Right and wrong are absolutes for me.
I’m firmly on the side here of social con-
servatives who rebelled against so-called
situational ethics, the idea that, well, some-
times wrong is OK in the proper instance.

No... .

What is right today i is and has been right
forever. What is wrong somehow isn’t going
to change into being right, even if the pop-
ular culture says it is.

The excuse that “everybody does it,”
bears no weight. An act is either right or it
is wrong. Period. Sometimes, I admit, some
acts are close enough to the line that it is
difficult to tell at first glance, but if you
look hard enough, consider long enough,
you'll be able to tell. The line is not a dim
one, it is bright.

If you’ve learned right from wrong.

If you haven’t learned, then, yes, every
action is going to be difficult to determine.
You'll hem and haw and wonder and prob-
ably most of the time do the easy thing,
which is very often not the right thing.

_ If you haven’t learned right from wrong
the line isn’t bright, but darn near invisible.
That’s the way it is for a great many of the
people in prison today, but not only for

them. There are plenty of people in power
who have trouble seeing the line, or who
believe the line moves.

The line doesn’t move. Situational ethics
exists only in the minds of people who can’t
see the line.

All of this came to me in a rush the oth-
er day when J read a story that the United
States Senate was debating a bill over tor-
ture and whether it could ever be used by
an agent of the United States.

A debate over torture?

Then J read a story that a slim majority of
Americans believed that torture should be
allowed in “extreme” cases. :

A majority of citizens?

Then I read a column by conservative
columnist Thomas Sowell — the last person
I would have ever accused of believing in
situational ethics — who said we should
not rule out torture.

What is this?

Everyone who believes they can see the
line-between right and wrong answer this
question, without allowing yourself to think
about any situation other than the basic
fact:

Is torture right or is it wrong?

If you answered that it is right, go back to
class. But I know almost no one reading
this would answer that. We all know that it
is wrong.

If you said, well, it is wrong almost
always, except when... . Then you have just
engaged in situational ethics.

Jtis either wrong or it is right. Period.

If this nation wants to do what is right —
we do want to do that, J think — then we
will make the flat statement that it is not

_allowed. Ever. For any reason. In any situ-
‘ation. .

Even Saddam Hussein probably pelievss
that torture is wrong — except in certain sit-
uations.

The problem with situational ethics is
that, once you begin to think like that, the

“situations” just keep popping up.

Right and wrong. It is no mystery. Tor-
ture is on the wrong side of that bright line.
Let’s make sure we don’t lose sight of it.

am, editor and publisher of the Marshall
(Texas) News Messenger).



THE TRIBUNE



Laying the
platform for
a Nationalist

political pa

EDITOR, The Tribune.

THERE is no way that the
policy of this or any Bahamian
government can be allowed to
override the express provisions
of our constitution, particularly
when it relates to a fundamental
right.

The continued refusal of gov-
ernment to recognise the right
of casino workers of Paradise
Island to form a union, is a
direct violation of these work-
ers’ right to freedom of associ-
ation. The battle for this right
was fought by the PLP govern-
ment in the fifties and sixties,
and it is truly a sad thing to see
a PLP government kicking this
provision of the 1973 Indepen-
dence Order, our constitution,
in the teeth in this manner.

The reason given “ that it is
government’s policy in favour
of the investor’s wishes” is the
worst sellout I have ever heard.
So not even our constitution can
protect us from the all impor-
tant demands of ‘ the investor.”
I wonder who this country
belongs to, the Bahamians or
the investors?

And how can a government
so blatantly break its own
pledge to uphold the constitu-
tion? This can only be the
actions of a government that
thinks that it is above the law, a
government prepared to ignore
the supremacy of the constitu-
tion, a government which refus-
es to enforce the immigration
laws on the books!

The issue of how the funda-
mental rights of constitutions
like ours are to be interpreted,
and specifically those provisions
that allow unionisation of work-
ers, has already been decided
in Privy Council decisions.
These are taught as standard to
law students in this region. I am
positive that the present PLP
government that is full of
lawyers knows this. They are
not acting in ignorance, no, it
is worse than that. They are
pursuing a directly and deliber-

ately illegal and unconstitu- |

tional policy.

How can a policy override a
protective constitutional provi-
sion written in black and white?
I have never heard anything like
this. Mr Peet was so bold as to
state clearly on local radio that

_it was his government’s policy to

not allow these workers to exer-
cise their right to unionise.

My mouth dropped open! I
thought that I had not heard
right. He attempted to explain
this with some flimsy excuse

based on improbable security
concerns.

I have never heard such
absolute nonsense given as an

explanation by a trained lawyer. °

Not even one of my first year
students in law would utter such
weak and reasons in an attempt
to justify breaching a major con-
stitutional provision!

I cry shame on this or any

government that tramples in
such a callous way on the rights
of so important a section of its
people as its workers.
: What about the unions in all
this? Instead of taking action
against this fundamental breach
of the rights of its designated
constituency, they have
remained silent. The union
leaders of the last generation
would have taken to the streets
to protest this flagrant slap in
the face of the workers. Is it
that the union leaders are in
bed with this government to
such a degree that they are will-
ing to turn a blind eye to this
gross insult?

If the established political
parties will stay silent as regards
this flagrant violation of our
constitution it is time for the
formation of a true Nationalist
party, dedicated exclusively to
defending the interests of
Bahamians. A good name
would be the Bahamian Nation-
alist Party. Its motto, “The
Bahamas for Bahamians”.

Its platform:

1) A strong immigration pol-

icy based on no new permits, a
line drawn south of Inagua, and
a review of all current work per-
mits.



‘

2) A Free enterprise, small-
er government, economic poli-
cy.

3) An ‘interest of thé
Bahamas first’ foreign policy;
based in a USA instead of
Socialist preference.

4) A regional policy of no to
CSME as an extended political
and economic unit.

5) A strong pro-environ-
mental preservation policy.

6) A strong pro-life policy to
promote the birth of more
Bahamians.

7) A return of the immov-
able properties act in a modi-
fied form. >

8) Economic diversificatiog
to the maximum degree possi*
ble under.a twenty-year plan to
produce greater economic inde-
pendence. g

9) Improved internal secur
ty and more aggressive fight
against crime.

10) A health policy of no
health tax, instead a partner-
ship with social partners such
as the unions and the churches
to provide needed health phys:

_ical plant.

11) A specific youth policy to
rescue our youth and engage
them in positive programmes.

12) A more relevant educa:
tion policy, emphasising skills
and vocational training as being
equal to pure academic attain-
ments. .

These would be my twelve
fundamental points which’
nationalist party can put for:
ward as being in the interest.of
our people.

What do you think?

S part of Amer-

ica’s continued

effort to assist

the Bahamas in

the fight against

illegal drugs, the US Embassy

donated two bullet proof vests

to the Drug Enforcement Unit.

At a press conference at the

US Embassy yesterday, Ambas-

sador John Rood presented the

gear, saying that it would pro-

tect individuals who “put their
lives on the line.”

Ata cost of $2,500 each, the

vests will be used by the marine
unit of the DEU.

Ambassador says drug flow

through Bahamas down from
70-80% to ‘less than 10%’

Besides providing body
armour, the vests are equipped
with a flotation device, flash-
light, a holster for a gun, cooling
packs and a “Cyalume” lumi-
nescent stick.

Mr Rood pointed out that the
partnership between the
Bahamas and the US in the
fight against illegal drugs has
been very successful.

“We have dramatically

reduced the flow of drugs
through the Bahamas. It is now
less than 10 per cent, where it
used to be 70 or 80 per cent,” he
said.

Mr Rood said that in order
to remain at this level, it is vital
that both countries remain alert
and continue to work together.

“T am very pleased, but the
key is to not let down our guard.
If we let down our guard and

assets and our attention to be
drawn elsewhere, the traffick-
ers would use that void in our
assets to take advantage of it
and reappear in no time,” said
Mr Rood.

He added that the United
States respects the justice sys-
tem in the Bahamas and the
country’s extradition law.

Mr Rood said the recent
meeting between OPBAT par-
ticipants was “positive.”

“It illustrates the strength of
the partnership between the
two countries. One thing that I
thought was very interesting to
note, is that our law enforce-

NATIONAL Tourism Week
will be held from January 8 to
13 next year, under the theme
"My Bahamas: to a common,
loftier goal".

The 2006 conference will fea-
ture a new venture that allows
participants to earn a Continu-
ing Education Credit (CEU)
from the College of the
Bahamas (COB).

The Ministry of Tourism and
COB announced that delegates
participating in “master class-
es” during National Tourism
Week will be presented with a
CEU. The classes are geared
towards professional develop-
ment and industry-specific train-
ing.

We take pride in the fact
that the college will be validat-
ing the master classes, as
tourism is the primary engine
of our economy," said Janet
Johnson, tourism special pro-
jects director.

The master classes begin on
Tuesday, January 10, at the
Wyndham Nassau Resort on

Cable Beach. Each class will be

led by an industry panel of
experts.

Delegates will receive an in-
depth perspective and advance
their skills in a number of areas,
the ministry said.

For each master class com-
pleted during the conference,
participants will receive a cer-
tificate of attendance.

Delegates who obtain a cred-
it can use it to establish a CEU
record, which can be used to
further their pursuit of higher
academic certification.

There will be a fee of $25 per
session, with all proceeds ear-
marked for the Cacique Schol-
arship Fund.

The master classes that will
take place throughout the day
are:

e Energy conservation and
trade show

e Human resource develop-
ment - innovation and best
practices | '

° The power of branding for

your company or organisation.

¢ The best use of information
management technology to
increase your business

¢ Transportation - planning
for the future

¢ Myths and models of event

management

e Implications of new taxi
exempt status 2006 on Bahamas
meetings/conferences or con-
vention business

° So you want to be a celebri-
ty chef?

e E-commerce

¢ So you want to be in the
movies?

"This particular project is
another important step in this
regard as skill development is
a major factor in service quality
especially in developing coun-
tries," said Ms Johnson.

The master classes will be
preceded by a careers fair on
January 9 at the Kendal G L
Isaacs gymnasium, a church cer-
emony at St Barnabas, a procla-
mation in Rawson Square, and
a "going public" town hall
meeting.

Wednesday, January 11, will
feature special keynote speaker

Professor Rex Nettleford, vice |

chancellor of the University of
the West Indies.

Over the next three days, a
wide variety of topics related to
the improvement of the tourism
industry will be covered.

Finally, at 8pm on Friday,
January 13, the 10th annual

‘Bringing some soul’

ELDERLY folk from Bain
Town will be entertained to a

munity.”

Rev C B Moss is urging more
emphasis on the positive.

And he says the 16th annual
senior citizens’ programme to
be held at his Mount Olive Bap-

tist Church at 2pm today isa»

good example of what he
means.

The old folk will be enter-
tained by Bahamian bands and
celebrated singer Ronnie Butler
as part of Mount Olive’s cam-
paign to increase community
spirit.

He sees the junction of Mead-
ow and Augusta Streets as the
focus of the local community
and wants to put his church at



back into Bain Town

-the centre of Bain Town life.

“We see too much about
crime and not enough about the
positive things that are going

on,” he told The Tribune yes-
-terday.

_ “We are trying to put some
soul back into the communiti-
ties. We are trying to create a
town centre where people can
meet.”

He added: “Our church caters
for the whole of Bain Town.
No-one who comes to our

. church looking for food is going

to go away without something.”
Today’s event is expected to
attract a large turnout.

ment people came out and said
that the Bahamas has one of
the best relationships from a
law enforcement perspective.”
He noted that the partner-
ship between the two countries
is not limited to the fight against
drugs, but extends also to com-
bating illegal immigration, deal-
ing with money laundering, and
fighting financial crime.

REFORM THE NATION, BUT ESPECIALLY THE CHURCH AND TO SPREAD
SCRIPTURAL HOLINESS THROUGHOUT THE LAND
(Father John Wesley)
“Celebrating 223 years of continuous Methodist witness for Christ in The Bahamas”

THE LORD’S DAY SABBATH BEFORE THE FESTIVAL OF THE
NATIVITY, DECEMBER 18, 2005 ,

INTROIT AND COLLECT:

And His mercy is on those who fear Him throughout all generations...as
He promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his descendants for ever.
My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit has rejoiced in God my Saviour.
HEAVENLY FATHER, who chose Mary, ever blessed, to be the mother
of our Lord and Saviour, and Joseph, her spouse, to be His guardian: fill
us with Your grace that in all things we may, like them, obey Your holy
will and rejoice in Your salvation, through the same Jesus Christ our
Lord.

purple charity wrist-bands
inscribed “Hope”, the nine stu-
dents raised money both in. and
out of school.

Students were sranted an
exception to the dress code.to
wear the band in an effort to
raise awareness for the need for
disaster relief and the need:to
bring hope to disaster victims.

Yesterday, Lyford Cay
teacher William K Schlei sent
a letter to the American Red
Cross and US Ambassador to
the Bahamas John Rood about
the effort.

In the letter Mr Schlei, who is
new to the school said: “I-was
impressed and delighted when
my homeroom students insisted
that the class take action to sup-
port the relief effort.

“Two students, Miss Natasha
Vazquez and Miss Jordan
Kemp, proposed the idea of
acquiring wrist-bands and using
them to solicit donations to the
American Red Cross.”

He explained that these two
students arranged the purchase
of the wrist bands in the US and .
their delivery to the Bahamas.

“Soliciting donations. both
within the Lyford Cay School
community and the Nassau

community at large, they suc-

ceeded in raising $1,601, which
has been forwarded to the
American Red Cross.

“T am justly proud of.the ini-
tiative demonstrated by these

. students, of the community ser-

vice effort, the learning experi-
ence they proposed for them-

‘selves, and J count myself lucky

indeed ‘to be their homeroom
teacher,” Mr Schlei said.

The students who took part in
the effort were: Shaunda Bly-
den, Courtney Bobbitt,
Michelle Dietrich, Gabrielle
Fawkes, Amber Francis, Jordan
Kemp, Brandon Sims, Fritz
Stubbs, Natasha Vazquez. ..°

CMEx's wide range of sponsors and support-

‘erpart International and hosted by the Bahamas
Ministry of Tourism, examined the theme
"Exploring Niche Markets for Caribbean
Tourism". Dynamic, interactive exchanges were
spiced by interventions on topics such as strategies
fg}-targeting the African American and other
niehe markets, involvement of the Diaspora, the
role of the Black Media, institutional arrange-
ments, communications and ethics, preserving
the environment, and focused product and cul-

power at 4.35pm, said Mr Saun-
ders.

“This time BEC did not noti-
fy us, so I think it was unex-
pected, something that just hap-
pened,” he said.

Kevin Basden, general man-
ager of BEC, told The Tribune
that an accident was the cause
of the unexpected power cut.

“A vehicle driving on Wind-
sor Field Road hit an electrical
pole, and caused the power out-
age. But we were able to restore
power to the area within the
hour,” he said.

However, Mr Saunders said

that the airport’s radar was not
up and running until 9pm that
night.

He said the radar failure was
an extraordinary occurrence as
the back-up power system failed
as well.

“The generator saved us
many a time. Normally the gen-
erator just switches on with only
flicker. I don’t know what hap-
pened (on Thursday). It was
just a freak thing,” he said.

The almost five-hour long
loss of radar led to numerous
delays of flights leaving Nassau.

Pressure for anti-drug resources

FROM page one

“T will continue to make the
case that we cannot afford to
let our guard down here, but I
‘also need to be able to make
the case that we are making the
best use possible of the
resources at hand,” he said.
tis Mr Rood said he appreciated
the:continued strong commit-
gmeént of the government to the
‘eduntries’ joint counter nar-
ebtics efforts.

e“4These efforts have resulted
“ni Significant achievements in
Our shared. fight against drug
tr&fficking throughout the
‘Bahamas. It was not that long
‘ago that the bulk of the cocaine
entering the US came through
the Bahamas,” he said.
~. Today, he’ said, experts say

‘that less than 10 per cent of ©

‘cocaine entering US enters
through the’ Bahamas. ~~
“This dramatic decline
‘demonstrates what can be
‘achieved when our countries
‘Yoinforces in the face of a com-
‘avon ‘threat. Now, while we
-should be pleased with our suc-
cesses, we must also look at the
‘challenges we face moving for-
owartd,” the ambassador said.

-‘Despite this, however, Mr -

Mitchell pointed out that an
‘Hemispheric assessment done
‘by-Inter American Drug Abuse
‘Géntrol Commission (CICAD),
‘the arm of the OAS responsible
‘for:all. aspect of drugs, indicates
“that drug trafficking in coun-

tries in the hemisphere is on the

‘ificrease.
ce“SGiven this sobering hemi-
“spheric evaluation on illicit

drugs ‘and the partnership now

- established between narco-traf-
‘fickers and those who deal in
terrorism, migrants, and arms,

we cannot let up in our cooper- °

“ative efforts,” he said.
-/Mr Mitchell said that the

“have shown how achievement
‘Of: positive results in interdic-
tion have given rise to a false
belief that “we had won this
war”.
.7Our confidence translated
into the removal of assets and
reduction in’funding with
almost disastrous results,” Mr
Mitchell said.
© Mr Rood said that OPBAT’s
stiecess in reducing the flow of
cocaine through the Bahamas
to,less than 10 per cent leads
some to argue that the Bahamas
no-longer requires US attention
and resources.
«However, the ambassador
said that should vigilance be
teduced the Bahamas could
Otice again become the pre-
ferred route for drug traffick-
éts' looking for the easiest way
to:move their goods from South
Ainerica to the US.
2.Since the beginning of 2005,
the United States has funded
more than $4 million worth of
taining for more than 900 offi-
gials encompassing over 20,000
man-hours.. Mr Rood said that
the recipients of this training
have included members of the
RBDF, RBPF, Customs and
Immigration.
* “My goal is to continue the
US government's commitment
fo provide training and techni-
éal assistance. Such training, I
believe, is the best means to

strengthen the capability of our

Bahamian law enforcement
partners,” he said.
«. The ambassador pointed out

that training provides knowl-
edge, expertise and boosts to
morale that pay dividends long
after the training ends.

“We must continue to adapt

the airport had to direct flights
with the use of non-radar pro-
ceclures. pt

‘What that means is that the
tower has to request the pilot
to give his exact position, and
then direct him. The pilot in
turn follows the request and
notifies the tower of his new
position. On radar its easier
because the plane’s signal sim-
ply shows you a flight’s posi-
tion,” he said.

Mr Saunders said that while
this method does not heighten
the risk for the flight, it requires
a Jot more time.

cruise to victory

B@ TENNIS
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

MARVIN Rolle and
Devin Mullings, who played
number one and two on the
past Davis Cup team, made
easy work of their opponents
on the first day of the
Bahamas Lawn Tennis Asso-
ciation’s trials for next year’s
team.

Playing out of Pool A on
‘Friday at the National Ten-
nis Centre, Rolle knocked
off Jamaal Hanna 6-0, 6-1,
while Mullings defeated
Jonathan Hepburn 6-2, 6-0
in pool B.

In the other two matches
played in the first session,
H’Cone Thompson got by
Jyles Turnquest 6-3, 6-0 in
pool A and Chris Eldon beat
Matthew Sands 6-4, 6-2 in
pool B.

US Open Junior champi-
on Ryan Sweeting was
scheduled to play Hanna and
Mullings was.to take on
Sands in two later matches.

The trials will.continue
today and wrap up on Sun-
day as the BLTA put togeth-
er the national team that will
travel to El Salvador in June
next year for the American
Zone III Davis Cup tie.

Challenge

All of the players, with the
exception of Hepburn, are
off to school or are playing
on the international circuit.

Hanna, one of the top local |

players, said he knows it’s
going to be a tough challenge
for him, but he’s going to
give it his best shot.

_ “JT didn’t play up to the lev-
el that I’m capable of play-
ing,” Hanna admitted. “I
played against one of the
best players in the country,
so J didn’t have that much
expectation, but to play
good.”

Hanna, who avoided get-
ting blanked in the fifth
game of the first set when he
held serve, said he may have
been a little too tight going
into the match.

“T know I’m not yet ready
for Davis Cup, so I’m just
going to try and get as much
as experience as I.can,” said
Hanna, the youngest mem-
ber of the players trying out
at age 18.

Mullings, a member of the
Ohio State Buckeyes’ tennis



LTA trials for
Davis Cup team



team, said he’s excited about
being home and playing for
another spot on the Davis
Cup team.

While he didn’t get much
of a challenge from Hanna,
Mullings: said he’s been
working on all aspects of his
game and he’s prepared to
play at a high level.

“I’m just going to go out
and playing 100 per cent,”
he projected. “That’s all I
can do.”

In his match, 24-year-old
Rolle didn’t have to work up
too much of a sweat, as he

wasted very little time in dis-
-posing: of Hepburn.--...

“J don’t think I played as
well as I would have liked. I
just kept the ball in play,” he
insisted. “He’s at Boise State,
so I expected him to play
better. I guess he was a bit
nervous.” ;

As for the rest of the trials,
Rolle said he just has to “go
out there” and “give it my
all” and hopefully at the end
of Sunday, he will be back
on the team.

Playing in his first outdoor
match since returning to
school in August, Hepburn,
also 18, said it took him a lit-
tle longer than expected to
make the adjustment.

“I was a little nervous.
Everything is going so fast.
I have to try and slow it
down,” he said of Rolle’s
uptempo game. ;

“T hope to work on some
things and play better tomor-
row.”

Jyles Turnquest, a 19-year-
old student of St. Thomas
University, was beaten by
H’Cone Thompson, despite
playing promisingly at the
start.

“T started off pretty good.
My serve was on for the first
couple of games,” said Turn-

quest, who had a chance to

break Thompson in the sixth
game, trailing 3-2 in the first
set.

“But I went into a mental
lapse after that and every-
thing went down hill after
that. I have a tough road the
rest over the next two days,

so I hope to get better.”

Thompson, a 24-year-old
pro player/coach in Wash-
ington DC, said, once he got
over the jitterbugs, it was
smooth sailing the rest of the
way.

“In the beginning it was
kind of rough getting used
to playing outdoors,” he
declared. “But I started to
get more comfortable, win-
ning more first serves and
using more forehand, it was
alright.

“But I know it’s going to
be a tough weekend. I just
have to focus on my next
match. So I just want to go
out there and pull off a vic-
tory and then worry about
the next guy because there’s
a lot of good guys out here.”

Injury

Eldon, the national cham-
pion, had to struggle a bit in
his first match back after sit-
ting out the past few months
with an injury in his fresh-
man season at Indiana State
University.

“It was good to get back
on the court,” he stressed.

“There’s a bunch of tough

players. It looks like it does-
n’t matter who goes, we will
have a pretty good team
because we have a lot of
good players here.”

Having missed the past
three ties, Eldon, 20, said he
would like nothing better
than to make the team next
year.

Using a strong forehand,
Eldon managed to go up a
break in the first game and
he was able to hold serve the

_rest of the match for the vic-

tory.

“He just served better than
me today,” said Sands, who
will begin his studies at Old
Dominion University in Jan-
uary. “I though I played
pretty good. He just served
better.”

Sands, 18, lost to Eldon in
the national open, but he
won the AID Clay Court
championship title.

Cheetahs





World’s

number

three Sweeting is
feeling confident

@ TENNIS
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

BACK home as the number three
ranked player in the world, US Open
junior champion Ryan Sweeting is look-
ing forward to the Bahamas Lawn Ten-
nis Association’s trials for the Davis
Cup team.

“J just want to play my best. I know
there will be some good matches
because everybody’s on top of their
game,” said Sweeting, who was sched-
uled to play his first match in the trials



“I just want to
play my best. I
know there will
be some good
matches because
everybody’s on
top of their game.”



Ryan Sweeting

on Friday against Jonathan Hanna.

“So I’m hoping to do well and hope-
fully make it on the team again.”

With his stock soaring higher than all
of the players because of his ITF rank-
ings, Sweeting knows that_all eyes will
be on him, but he admits that he doesn’t
feel pressured to play any harder than
he normally does.

“T don’t feel that much pressure. I’m

used to playing at home, so I’m com- ,

fortable,” he stressed. “I’m still confi-
dent after my year, so I’m feeling good.

I don’t feel any pressure. I’m just anx-
ious to get back on the court.”

After his stunning victory at the US
Open in Flushing Meadows, New York
in September, Sweeting went on to the
Chanda Rubin Pan American Closed
Championships where he won in
three sets over American top ranked
Donald Young in October in Tulsa,
Oklahoma.

Despite the disappointment of the last
two tournaments, Sweeting still ended

‘the year ranked as the number three
player, a feat he said-he was thrilled to
have achieved.

Work

“J couldn’t ask for anything better,”
he said. “It took six years of a lot of
hard work to get where I’m at. I want to
thank my mom, Cindy, my coach, Neko,
and all my friends and family, who were
there 100 per cent for me.”

At age 18, Sweeting will be enrolling
at the University of Miami in January,
but after a semester or two, he will con-
sider his options as a professional.

“It definitely will happen,” he insist-
ed about his looming pro career. “We
will just see what happens after the first
year.”

In the meantime, Sweeting said he
just wants to get through the trials this
weekend and secure his spot on the
team next year.

“A lot of the players are playing pret-
ty good,” he charged. “Even though
some people are favoured, it doesn’t
matter.

“You still have to come out here and
play hard.”

Sweeting will be in action with the
other eight players vying for a spot on
the Davis Cup team that will travel to
El Salvador in June for the American
Zone III competition.

CC Sweeting Scorpions

@ BASKETBALL
By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter

AS THE action in the Father
Marcian Peters Invitational Bas-
ketball Tournament heats up,
more teams are facing the pain
of elimination.

Two of the teams to be ousted
in the double elimination for-
mat at the Kendal Isaacs Gym-
nasium on Friday were the
South Andros Cheetahs junior
girls and San Salvador senior
girls.

Playing for the first time in
any organised basketball, the
Cheetahs gave it a gallant effort,
but fell victim to the CC Sweet-
ing Scorpions 16-8 in a do-or-
die game for both teams.

“Against CC Sweeting, it was
very interesting,” said South
Andros’ coach. “It’s the first
time that we ever played a junior
girls team, so it was a good expe-
rience for them.

“But they are eight and ninth
graders, so hopefully we will
have a good solid girls basketball
team to work with in the future.”

| Push

’

Glendieka Forbes, who played
an all-around game trying to
give the Cheetahs the extra push
they needed to get over the
hump, couldn’t agree more.

“J feel happy about our effort.
We just came here to enjoy our-
selves,” Forbes said. “For our
first time, it was good for us to
see where we are.

“Hopefully when we come
back next year, we will be look-
ing at not just winning the junior
girls division, but the senior girls
as' well.”

Forbes, who is expected to be
back in the junior girls division
next year, scored two points,
while Anya Smith led their
offensive attack with four.

The Scorpions, on the other
hand, were just too much for the
Cheetahs to handle. Sitting on
the bubble after losing their first
game, CC Sweeting reeled off

Father Marcian

Peters Invitational





their third straight victory to stay
alive.

Keva Barry, whose jumper at
the buzzer was not counted in
their two-point loss to the SC
McPherson Sharks, didn’t have
to wait on any last minute hero-
ics.

She canned eight, including
six in the first half as the Scor-
pions rolled out to a 8-2 advan-
tage at the half. Lorinta

‘Seraphin added four and Ter-

rinique Rogers chipped in with
two. :

Coach Tracy McKenzie said
he was pleased with CC Sweet-
ing’s performance.

“That was a tough South
Andros team,” he admitted.
“I’m just happy that we came
out on top. We played hard and
we fought right to the end.”

South Andros managed to

.come within two, 8-6, thanks to a

pair of free throws from Forbes
and a jumper from Smith on a
costly turnover from CC Sweet-
ing to start off the third.

Forbes even came up with a
big block shot that had the fans
cheering loudly in the gym. But
Barry would get the ball and, on
her crossover dribble, she hit a
20-foot jumper that pushed the
Scorpions ahead 10-6 at the end
of the period.

In the fourth, South Andros
had numerous opportunities to
score, but they couldn’t get the
ball to fall in the hole as CC
Sweeting managed to convert a
few more baskets to stay ahead.

In their senior girls division,
CC Sweeting didn’t have any
problems putting away San Sal-
vador as they used a balanced
scoring attack in their lop-sided
victory.

Just like the junior girls game,
the Cobras had to win or face

elimination after losing to the

CI Gibson Rattlers. Instead,
they sent San Salvador packing
with their second straight defeat.

Shenella Sweeting, Garcia
Sweeting, Ruthann Simms and
Crystal Dean all scored eight
points in the win for the Cobras.
Sweeting said it was a perfor-
mance they needed.

“Our team came out more
defensively. Today was the first
day that we really used the plays
we practised on at school,”
Sweeting said. “We just need to
run more.”

CC Sweeting certainly ran the
ball against San Salvador.

Performance

They had posted a 13-2 mar-
gin at the half as they. out-
rebounded and out-hussled San
Salvador in a dominating per-
formance. Coach Stephen
Brown admitted that they were
out-matched in all aspects of the
game.

“T don’t think they were up to
the challenge,” Brown stressed.
“We really wanted to win the
game. I tried to motivate the
players. We have a slogan that
says ‘no pressure,’ so I didn’t try
to put any on them.

-“They were coming around
for the first 6-7 minutes of the
game, but everything just started
to fall apart after that. I don’t
know what happened.”

Brown, however, noted that
he had to bring up some of his
junior players to make up a
senior team, so that may have
played a factor in their downfall
as they couldn’t match-up with
CC Sweeting.

The tournament, sponsored
by the Ministry of Youth, Sports
and Culture, will wrap up today.
