Father stabbed

by his own son

Man is
critical
after
police
halt car

@ By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

A FATHER in his early 40s
was stabbed multiple times in
the chest by his son, said to be
in his 20s, at mid-day yesterday
near East Street and Sands
Road, according to police press
liaison officer Walter Evans.

He said the father might have
been trying to get to the hospi-
tal.

Mr Evans said detectives
travelling west on Sands Road
noticed a black Ford Expedi-
tion driving erratically and
decided to investigate.

When officers were able to
getia clear view of the two men
inside the vehicle, they noticed
that the man in the back seat
had one arm around the driver’s
neck and was swinging his oth-
er arm in a stabbing motion.

They then used their black
Crown Victoria to stop the
Expedition, both vehicles com-
ing to rest facing each other
bumper to bumper.

According to eyewitness
Ronald McKenzie of McKen-
zie’s Auto, the driver stumbled
out of the vehicle and collapsed
on to the sidewalk next to the
Ministry of National Security.
Meanwhile, officers fought to
subdue the man in the back
seat.

“He didn’t want to come out
of the jeep,” said Mr McKen-
zie. “They had to pull him out.”

Police later determined the
man was the victim’s son, who
they said is a Junior, bearing his
father’s name.

Officers were reluctant to
release the men’s names, as the
father is in hospital in critical
condition.

Mr McKenzie said the man

According to initial reports,
the driver of a 2000 Chevy
Impala had just left a private
function at Workers’ House
when a truck overtook and
stopped some distance ahead
on Tonique Williams Darling
Highway around 2.25 am. An
occupant of the truck got out
and fired shots from a shotgun
at the Chevy Impala, causing
damage to the vehicle.

US bailout
could help
Bahamian
economy

@ By LLOYD ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

The passing into law of the
$700 billion bail-out package in
the United States yesterday
could have a positive effect on
the Bahamas’ ailing economy,
but Bahamians are still urged
to remain prudent with their,
spending, State Minister for
Finance Zhivargo Laing told
The Tribune.

The US House of Represen-
tatives yesterday passed an
unprecedented financial bail-
out plan, which many predict
will contribute tremendously to
re-directing the American econ-
omy toward stability.

With that bill now being
signed, local officials say that
although economic conditions
are expected to improve in the
American market, Bahamians
should remain prudent in their
spending, and continue to mon-
itor financial developments
locally and abroad.

Mr Laing said: “It is helpful
that they were able to resolve
that crisis, which clearly now

tion with the armed robbery
of a Quick Cell booth.

At around 1.30pm on
Thursday, an employee of a
Quick Cell booth on Woodes
Alley, off Wulff Road, was
held up by a man wielding a
knife.

The robber demanded cash
and phone cards of the
employee before fleeing the
scene.

However, officers from the
Mobile Division, who were on
patrol in the area, caught up
to the suspect and were able
to apprehend him only min-
utes after the robbery took
place.

Police arrested a 27-year-
old man who fit the given
description of the robber.

Officers searched the man
and found that he had in his
possession cash and an assort-
ment of cellular telephone
cards.



e POLICE are looking for
a suspect in connection with

Customs corruption claims

ba

probe ‘nearing completion’

m= By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net

INTERNAL investigations
into allegations of corruption
of involving two customs offi-
cers are "nearing completion",
according to acting Comptroller
of Customs Anthony Adderley.

When contacted this week,
Mr Adderley said the internal
investigative team was awaiting
“one or two" more reports
before wrapping up the investi-
gations. |

"We're looking into those,
we're pretty much wrapping it

up.

two more reports in and I think
we'd be in a position to deter-
mine which direction we will
go

then we will proceed along the
lines that are available to us
through our Act or General
Orders.

“First of all, all of the infor-
mation has got to be obtained
because the facts are very
important and then action
would be taken based on the
facts," said Mr Adderley.

He added that the depart-
ment is treating the claims as
allegations and will continue to
do so unless the investigation
proves otherwise.

Two weeks ago, The Tribune
first reported that the depart-
ment was probing allegations
involving a high-ranking cus-
toms officer who allegedly
"abused" his authority by
attempting to evade paying cus-
toms duties on goods shipped
to Nassau under his name.

The officer allegedly demand-
ed that a shipping agent delete
his name from the cargo mani-
fest.

Man charged on four
armed robbery counts

A MAN was remanded to
Her Majesty’s Prison yesterday
after being arraigned on multi-
ple armed robbery charges.

Pedro Antonio Lynes, 21, of
Christie Avenue was arraigned
before Magistrate Derrence
Rolle at Court Five in Bank
Lane on four counts of armed
robbery as well as charges of

burglary and causing harm. —,

According to court dockets,
it is alleged that on Tuesday
September 30, Lynes, while
being concerned with others
and armed with a handgun,
robbed Rosina Smith of $2,080
in jewellery and other personal
belongings as well as a Jaguar
vehicle.

It is also alleged that on the
same day while being concerned,
with others, Lynes robbed
Tavando Neely of $2,350 worth
of jewellery.

He was charged with causing
harm to Tavando Neely while

concerned with others.

It is further alleged that on
Tuesday, September 30, the
accused robbed Harlysa Simms
of a gold nugget ring valued at
$650 and a gold nugget chain
valued at $600.

The prosecution further
claimed that around 2am on

September 30, the accused,
being concerned with others,
broke into the home of Rosina
Smith on Christie Avenue.
Lynes was not required to
plead to the charge and was
remanded to Her Majesty’s
Prison. The case has been
adjourned to November 12.

EFFECTIVE OCTO

Internal documents seen by
The Tribune support these
claims.

Assistant Comptroller Clif-
ford Ferguson also confirmed
during an earlier interview that
the department was investigat-
ing a letter of complaint dated
September 8, which accused
another officer of breaching
procedure by allowing a man
and his family to leave the cus-
toms area at the airport with-
out "providing any declaration
to the officer; having their lug-
gage inspected; and having their
passports stamped".

The officers, whose identities






have been withheld, are still
working in their capacity with
the department although Mr
Ferguson said one of the offi-
cers has been restricted to desk
duty pending the results of the
probe.

A source within the depart- °
ment called for an external
investigation, fearing that nepo-
tism would taint any internal
probe.

Although the assistant comp-
troller said was "open" to such
an inquiry, yesterday Mr
Adderley declined to comment
on whether an outside investi-

gation is necessary.

There’s still time before the election

WITH nearly five weeks left, no one
should pay much attention to those who
say the presidential election is all but over.

Still, Sen. Barack ‘Obama’s gains in
recent opinion polls since the first presi-

dential debate are no doubt worrisome .

for backers of the McCain-Palin ticket.

Campaign spokespeople are trained to
accentuate the positive publicly, even if
someone has to give more candidly sober
assessments to candidates and high-level
campaign strategists behind closed doors.

Earlier this week, John McCain’s team
members looking for good news could
point to Gallup’s daily tracking poll and a
Washington Post/ABC national poll that
showed Barack Obama was still leading,
but by a smaller margin than in recent
prior instalments.

But to sell that as a champagne-cork
popper, either internally or in a spin room,
those McCain campaign spokespeople
would have to ignore polls from several
key battleground states — released on the
very same day — that showed Obama
expanding or taking over a lead in cru-
cial states. They’d have to also ignore that,
in the previously mentioned Gallup Rack-

ing poll, McCain had been dead ever;with:..
Obama less. than a week earlier —# the °

day before the first presidential debate. |

Those state polls showed Obama with
leads as great as eight points in Florida
and Ohio, both red states in 2000 and 2004
and ones in which Obama had consistent-
ly trailed in most prior polls. New polls
also showed Obama with a lead that
ranged from seven to 15 points in Penn-
sylvania, which went blue in the past two
elections but where the lead had been
shifting or within the’ most prior polls’
error margin.

So, does that mean buns camp spin-
meisters have an easier job looking at
polls, and then issuing statements that
make things seem rosy? Yes. But my
advice is that they should let the cham-
pagne chill for now, too. There’s lots of
time left.

However you read recent polling trends,
it is interesting and ironic that by mid-
week, the Republicans were looking

. toward vice presidential candidate Sarah
Palin’s debate Thursday night with Joe
Biden as their best immediate hope fora
game-changing occurrence to alter them.

Even as she read from note cards and
stuck to talking points instead of directly
answering questions, Palin survived that
debate without making major blunders or
exposing significant knowledge gaps.
MSNBC commentator Pat Buchanan
praised her performance, but suggested
that backers of the Republican ticket and
conservatives were breathing sighs of

relief.

Indeed, the much-anticipated debate
came at quite a critical time for Republi-
cans’ hopes for some good, fortune-chang-
ing news to be resting on the Alaska gov-
ernor’s shoulders.

The economic crisis and congressional
efforts to address it have been dominating
the news, as they should have.

But Palin’s image and credibility had
been suffering almost daily damage hits
from the strangely stretched-out release of
her interview with CBS anchor Katie
Couric, among other things. On the cable
news shows and the Internet, there was
endless chatter about a “Saturday Night
Live” comedy skit that made Palin look
hilariously shallow, even with laugh mate-
rial taken largely verbatim from her own
words. And leading conservative voices
such as columnists George Will and Kath-
leen Parker, and former Bush speechwriter
David Frum, made unequivocal utterances
that she is neither ready nor qualified.

Should Obama win, this campaign has
shown us that McCain and his chief strate-

_ gists are pretty good at “the blame game”

even when they profess to renounce it.
Just as clearly, this.campaign has shown
that McCain and his top advisers can and
will turn on their own.

But if five weeks from now they are
looking at a loss to Obama and assigning
blame to Palin, someone needs to call
them on it.

I'd be the last to claim that I understand
what it takes to sway a voter who is still
undecided in an election like this one,
where policy differences are so stark and
pronounced. But in the same time frame
as the first two debates and image-dam-
aging interviews and news stories about
Palin, McCain and his close inner circle
haven’t looked so good either.

Besides McCain’s pandering and infan-
tile threat to cancel his first debate, there
was their Wall Street Journal ad declaring
him the winner in that debate, that hap-
pened to show up on the newspaper’s Web
sii. before the debate even took place.

Days later, they dispatched numerous
allies and surrogates to news networks to
credit McCain’s “leadership” for bringing
about passage of the $700 billion bailout
bill. But oops. It went down in the first
House. vote, largely because it lacked sup-
port of Republican House members.

“Saturday Night Live” could have a field
day during its next several épisodes, using
no one other than McCain and his top
advisers for material.

Don’t back
down to
BIC union

EDITOR, The Tribune.

1 HAVE just read your article
pertaining to the response from
BTC union leader Mr Robert
Farquharson. This man in his
own admission told the Bahami-
an public that this was an indus-
trial action against the BTC
management and the Bahamian
government. Yet now, he’s try-
ing to spin this action that was
taken by BTC management as

an violation in the union’s |

agreement between manage-
ment and the government. So
the real question is, are the
rights of these poor Bahamians
who were forced to sit in this
traffic jam and lose hundreds
of dollars so the union could
flex their muscle or, is it the
poor BTC unionised worker
violated for following the
actions that I’m sure were
instructed to carry out by their
fearless leaders on the day in
question.

Perhaps the union should
take notice at the recent fallout
from General Motors. The

UAW ( United Auto Works)
which was the second strongest
and largest union in north
America, had a strong hold on
GM for many years. Every
three years the union would
wave there picket signs at the
management and force them to
give yet another increase in
their $65,000.00 plus yearly
wage, not to mention their lav-
ish pension, medical, dental-and
all these other expenses paid by
GM. Today those very same
union workers are or will be out
of a job.

If BTC union, leaders are so
concerned about the pay cut to
their members, then why not
pay your union-members the
funds that they have lost from
your “not so-called industrial
action”.

This is a milestone in the
Bahamas, if the BTC manage-

ment fold on this issue and
return these funds back to the
workers, it will set the stage for
further action by the other
unions in the Bahamas. How
can you chastise one union and
not the other, if they carry out
similar actions in the future?
Simply put, you can’t. ,

Wary of precedent set
by government subsidy

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I am certain that our erstwhile Prime Minister
means well when he announced that his admin-
istration would bring “relief” to the hard-pressed
Bahamian-consumer, viz-a-viz the high cost of
energy. Good intentidfis, however, are not what
keeps a national budget balanced or an economy
running smoothly.

Yes, the BEC surcharge is simply too high for

most consumers in residential and commercial

settings. We do not produce a single drop of oil in
The Bahamas, despite the occasional ballyhoo
about oil drilling prospects just off the coast of
Bimini and in. the Tongue of the Ocean. As a
result, we have little or no control of the costs of
oil or gasoline at the pumps locally.

The PM is setting an extremely bad precedent,
however, in that he is using taxpayers’ funds,
without their tacit or expressed permission, to
prop up the high electrical bills which face count-
less Bahamians.

Who authorized Mr Ingraham, with the stroke
of a pen, if that, to use my hard earned tax dollars
to do this? Where will the bail outs stop? Remem-
ber’‘the Royal Oasis fiasco and the millions of
tax payers dollars sent down the proverbial black
hole?

Lehman Brothers is now in bankruptcy and I
am certain that we will never recoup a single red
cent from that entity to “reimburse” the govern-
ment and innocent people of the nation. Just the
other day, when the cellular systems were down,
BaTelCo, gratuitously, doled out over a million
dollars in “free” air time to consumers.

Charity, in private and by individuals on a vol-

untary basis, is fine but when a government starts
to use tax payers’ monies to prop up another seg-
ment of society, at the tax payer’s expense, this in
my opinion is tantamount to “legal plunder” by
that government.

The FNM clearly has absolutely no workable
ideas as to how to bring real relief and hope to

- Bahamians. A bunch of hack doctors and self

appointed spin gurus surrounds the hapless PM
and he is now seemingly addicted to their bogus
advice.

The Small Business Association is of the view
that the FNM needs to do more, on the ground, to
encourage the creation of small sized businesses
(which traditionally run 70 per cent or more of the
economy) and access to business capital. Fake
and temporary “relief” with BEC is one thing
but what are the PM’s plans for the way forward?

God help The Bahamas if oil were to go
beyond B$175 per barrel or if there were to be a
tresh outbreak of hostilities in the Middle East. If
Iran were to be bombed by the USA or by Israel
the cost of crude oil would go off the chart. The
PM, of course, is not a global player but one of the
smallest fish in the geopolitical water hole. As
such, despite his histrionics and good intentions,
he, too, will eventually “fail” us.

Of course, we will have run the harrowing
gauntlet of the European Economic Partnership
Agreement (EPA) and the nuances, hidden and
overt, of a creeping Caribbean integration and
free movement of people, willy nilly.

GB Power Company and |

govt reach agreement

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Power was restored to
some 200 consumers on Grand Bahama
yesterday as a result of an arrangement
reached between the government and
the Grand Bahama Power Company.

State Minister for Finance Zhivargo
Laing said the arrangement made with
power Officials in Freeport is similar to
the government’s electricity relief pro-
gramme for BEC consumers in New
Providence.

The arrangement, Mr Laing said, calls
for reconnected consumers to enter into
a plan with the GBPC to determine a
suitable arrangement for payment of
their debts.

“JT want to indicate that this is one-
time event just as the BEC interven-
tion was. So those persons who are
accommodated by this programme and
by the GB Power Company payment
plan are required to fulfill their obliga-
tion, and if they do not they will have to
face termination of their power sup-
ply,” he said.

Mr Laing was speaking at a press con-
ference held in the boardroom of the
GB .Power Company. GBPC CEO
Excell Ferrell and Anthony Lopez, vice
president of finance, were also present.

Mr Ferrell said in order to ensure
quickest restoration affected customers

should visit their payment centres locat-
ed at the Port Authority in Freeport,
or at Eight Mile Rock to confirm their
address and account specifics.

He noted that the payment plan
requires customers to pay 25 per cent of
what they owe now, with the reminder
to be paid over the next six months,
while continuing to pay the current bill.

Minister Laing said that persons who
have difficulty meeting the requirement
for the GBPC payment plan should vis-
it the Department of Social Services to
see if the government relief programme
can be extended to them.

In addition to this measure, the min-
ister said that government will extend
relief to the 15,000 residential con-
sumers on Grand Bahama by subsidis-
ing the fuel surcharge of GBPC.

This is estimated to cost the govern-
ment between $1 and $1.5 million, he
said.

Mr Laing said that from October to
December 31, in the case of any sur-
charge above 15 cents, the difference
will be paid by the government for res-
idents who consume no more than 800
kwh per month.

He said it covers at least 75 per cent
of the residential consumers in low to
middle income households on the
island. “ss

Mr Laing reported that the average
residential customer in Grand Bahama
uses 650 kwh a month — much than the
450 kwh by used by consumers in New
Providence. -

He said: “I am delighted that GBPC
has been so willing to work with gov-
ernment in this regard as it has in times
past, and to be in a position to offer
relief to consumers in Grand Bahama
impacted by the extraordinary high fuel
surcharge,” he said.

Minister Laing said the minister of
energy has appointed an Energy Com-
mission-to explore alternative energy
sources for the government.

“We have also been meeting with
the Inter-American Development Bank
and have discussed with them the
prospects for alternative forms of ener-
gy in the country and the Power Com-
pany has also expressed things they are
looking at.

“While we are looking at long-term
solutions to energy needs. The reality is,



tion if they are fortunate enough to see a
turtle swimming in the wild.

“Some Bahamians do not realise that
the turtles are actually worth much more
alive than dead,” Mrs Aranha noted.

“Eco-

tourism is very popular around the
world, and if we can make our turtle pop-
ulation increase, and they feel safe in our
seas, tourists will flock here in the hopes
of seeing a turtle whilst diving, and take
home scores of photos taken in the
Bahamas to show off to their friends,”

The public needs to remember though
that the project is still in the proposal
phase, Mrs Aranha noted, urging those in
support of this ban to make their voices
heard so that the minister knows they
feel he has made a wise and sound sug-
gestion.

people who have no electricity in their
homes today cannot cook a meal
because they have no electricity, cannot
walk in their homes at night without a
candle or kerosine lamp, and relief
needs to be brought to them,” said Mr
Laing.

Mr Ferrell said GBPC is pleased to be
working with the government of the
Bahamas to provide a level of econom-
ic relief to its residential consumers.

The CEO noted that September’s
fuel surcharge was noticeably higher
than in previous months. He anticipates
a reduction within the next few months.

“We’re reminding customers to pay
keen attention to the energy conserva-

tion tips we continue to provide to !

reduce monthly usage,” he said.

Mr Ferrell said they will continue to
offer payment plans to customers with
an acceptable payment history who are
experiencing difficulties.

He commended those customers who
continue to make payments in a timely
fashion.

“We remain committed to providing
a service of excellence and regard the
well being and safety of our customers
and employees as a priority.

“We wish to thank the government
for a continued great working relation-
ship and look forward to doing what is
best for the residents of Grand Bahama
and by extension the people of the
Bahamas,” said Mr Ferrell.

: THE Bahamas Humane Society said it applauds Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Larry Cartwright for issuing a proposal
: to ban Bahamian sea turtles from commecial harvesting untill April1, 2009.

Cartwright issues proposal to protect sea turtles

She said: “We are also, so very happy
that the Bahamas National Trust recent-
ly came onboard with us and asked for a
total ban. :

“Nothing will make me happier than to
know that our turtles will finally be safe
from torture, derision, and days of misery
before a painful death, I am so happy
Minister Cartwright has made this pro-
posal.

“Once this is passed we can safely say
to ourselves that our grandchildren will
be lucky enough to know what a free sea
turtle is.”

The Bahamas Humane Society is a
member of the Bahamas Sea Turtle Con-
servation Group which, Mrs Aranha said,
has been working hard “day in and day
out” to promote public awareness of the
plight of Bahamian sea turtles.

"I vex, yex when I see pictures of the
poor starving children in Haiti. Their
country Haiti had freedom and inde-
pendence from France for 208 years,
longer than everyone else except the
States, and all they have is the biggest
nine million people and children popu-
lation in the Caribbean. When other
countries give them help they should
also give them birth control to stop them
making so many children that they can't
feed and clothe. Everybody just giving
other things when Haiti in trouble beg-
gin’ for help. Give them birth control
too, so they can at least manage to help
themselves in the future.”

"I vex because our government is
proposing to rebuild the straw market
on the old site. My opinion is, the straw
market can be rebuilt on the South-
ern Recreation ground. That location
would be an extension to Bay Street
shopping and visitors walking would be
able to see places like Gregory Arch,
Government House, St Agnes'
Church, Christ Church Cathedral and
other buildings.

“We would also have more space
for parking, especially since govern-

"I vex because when it rains it seems
like everything shuts down. People dri
ve so slow on the road, inching along
like they don't have anywhere to go.
And it seems like on a rainy day,
Bahamians don't know how to pick |
up the phone. Just because it rains that
means you don't have to go to work.”

"I vex about all the Haitians jumping
over my wall every day. Late in the
night, early in the morning, they jump
over my wall just to get on the other
side where they live instead of walking
the long way. Last night I was on my
computer, I see a big grown man with
grocery bags jumping over a wall
mussie six feet high. Before ] move
there, the landlord built barbed wire
around the wall, but the piece in front
of my house came down. So now I
have to deal with people coming in
my yard all the time - for three years
it's been the same thing. I can't even
say lemme open my curtains in the
morning because I ain' know who
could be traipsing in my yard.”

"I'm just upset about all the young
men in my neighbourhood hooked on
drugs. Meth, coke, prescription drugs -
they on everything. It's like the major-
ity of the guys round here don't work
and all day, all night, it's like Jamaica
light up in my neighbourhood.

Claim $492,000
that caused

attorney’s woes
‘never missing’

FROM page one

acting for his client as a trustee
and not as an attorney and was
. accused of “failure to properly
account” for funds, rather than
having misappropriated them,
it was not appropriate that he
should have been penalised by
being disbarred.

Furthermore, Mr Evans
claimed that documents have
allegedly been discovered in
Jersey which “clearly indicate”
that the money was never miss-
ing to begin with.

“The findings (by the Disci-
plinary Tribunal in 2001) were
that he failed to keep a clear
accounting of the trust
fund...that he failed to account
for the $492,000,” said Mr
Evans to Bar Council chair-
woman Ruth Bowe-Darville.

“The fact that (he) did not.

keep proper records is not evi-
dence of a lack of integrity,” he
said.

“There is no evidence of mis-
appropriation. He was ineffi-
cient in record-keeping.”

But Ms Bowe-Darville’s pri-

mary concern was whether or
not the original complainant
had been informed that new
documents allegedly account-
ing for the money have now
been found.

“TI need to know if he is satis-
fied if this is a correct account-
ing of his money,” said the

chairwoman, flanked by five '

other council members. _
“Who is to verify these are
true accounts? We cannot veri-
fy these accounts,” she said.
Ms Bowe-Darville said the
proceedings could not move
ahead without input from the
complainant as to whether he
agreed that the other docu-
ments provide evidence the
money was not, in fact, missing.
But Mr Evans said the
“source documents will speak
for themselves,” alleging fur-
thermore that “the instructions
I’ve got from (Mr Smith) is that

he has not been able to find (Mr

Klonaris) in recent times.”

However, Ms Bowe-Darville
was not convinced and
adjourned the matter until an
attempt to locate Mr Klonaris
had been made.

Despite the proximity os
Princess Margaret Hospital to

He also said the two women

When The Tribune arrived
on the scene, a small trail of
blood remained which ran from

a larger pool next to the side-
walk.

A pair of brown shoes stood
where witnesses said the father
would have collapsed. Music
was still playing inside the
Expedition.

Mr Evans said the son was
arrested on the scene and found
to have a knife measuring six
to eight inches.

He described the incident as
“bizarre” and-said he couldn’t
imagine what would have
caused the situation to erupt to
such a degree.

Caribbean policing

no easy assignment

By MIKE MELIA
Associated Press Writer

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico
(AP) — A lawsuit filed by
Antigua’s ousted police com-
missioner shows it’s not always
a tropical idyll when a veteran
officer from Britain or Canada
chooses to spend the twilight of
his career working in the
Caribbean.

A retired member of the
Royal Canadian Mounted
Police, Gary Nelson is suing the
Caribbean government that
recruited him, accusing Antigua
and Barbuda of political inter-
ference amid a high-profile dou-
ble murder case.

Caribbean, other officers enlist-
ed to help fight a wave of vio-
lence describe being confronted
with high-profile cases, a lack
of resources and island politics.

“It sounds wonderful and
interesting to be in the
Caribbean and be commission-
er, but I never would have
accepted this position if I had
known what the government is
like,” Nelson said in a phone
interview.

Nelson told The Associated
Press the government refused
to give him authority he needed
to modernize the police force.
He was dismissed after two

Across the English-speaking — threatened the tourist industry.

Ex-Tribune worker
tried to ‘hold on’ for



wedding anniversary

FROM page one

Chea, a father of six, was released from a three-week hospital stay
last week and expected to celebrate the 50th year of his marriage
with wife Hazel. His daughter Tracey believes he was trying to
“hold on” longer for that reason.

Family said he was a man with a sense of humour who placed
high value on religion.

**He was loyal to us as a family man. He did whatever it took to
ensure that we got the best. He always wanted to make sure that our
spiritual life was in order. I grew‘up with my father going to church
every morning rain or shine. If he found out one of us as adults did-
n’t attend church he wanted to find out why,” said Tracey.

Noting that dealing with a family member who is suffering from
a degenerative disease can take a toll on loved ones, Tracey advised
others going through the same ordeal to be patient and take the dis-
ease day by day.

“When (you're dealing with) a loved one with Alzheimer’s or
Parkinson’s, what you haye to do is love them for that day. Some-
times they don’t know what day they were in or what decade
because an Alzheimer’s person could think they are still in the 40s
or 50s.

“Sometimes it can be embarrassing because other people don’t
know they are (suffering) from Alzheimers, especially during the
early stages of the disease. So I would encourage any person who
finds out their family is going through Alzheimers to love them
through whatever day or whatever year that they’re in.”

Chea, a former student of Eastern Senior School, was an avid fan
of local baseball, loved fishing and sang tenor in the St Anselm's
Church choir. He started his long career as a printer with The
Tribune before leaving to work for Executive Printers.

He was born on January 25, 1933, and is survived by wife Hazel,
daughters Althea Scantlebury, Crystal Barnett, Tracey Chea, Gina
Roberts, sons Clement Chea and Michael Chea, 13 grandchildren
and brother Raymond Chea.

Funeral services are scheduled for next Saturday at 4pm at St
Anselm’s Church. Friends and family can view his body at Kemp’s
Funeral Home.

Antigua Prime Minister Bald-
win Spencer said last month
that Nelson was fired because of
“unsatisfactory” performance
but did not provide details.
Government spokesman Mau-
rice Merchant declined to com-
ment further.

Nelson said Antigua and Bar-
buda hired him to only give the
impression the twin-island goy-
ernment was tackling its soaring
crime rate.

In St. Lucia, Police Commis-
sioner John Broughton — a
Briton — had to go to court
Thursday to face a police super-
intendent who — alleges
Broughton intimidated him.

Shortly after Broughton’s
appointment in 2006, vandals
broke into his office, poured
water over his computer and
left a note with a crude drawing
of a gun saying “Broughton will



never be Commissioner.”

The local police union is
demanding his resignation over
complaints about his leadership.

In Jamaica, former Scotland
Yard detective Mark Shields
was brought in to curtail a sky-
high homicide rate in 2005 and
is struggling to gain support for
initiatives such as standardized
police reports. With homicides
continuing virtually unabated,
Shields told AP he cannot waste
time on political feuds.

Early in his tenure, Shields

was the lead investigator into
the suspected murder of the
coach of Pakistan’s cricket team
during the 2007 World Cup. As
the investigation stumbled,
politicians accused police of
incompetence and even one of
Shields’ officers criticized him
before authorities determined
the coach died of natural causes.

The minister sapiained that
many Americans will now be
put in a position where they can
afford leisure trips to such des-
tinations as the Bahamas. “This
could have a positive impact on
our economy,” he added.

However, the minister
warned that it is too early to
predict how the local economy
would be affected by the bail-
out,

“We have to all still be obser-
vant to see exactly whether or
not this does, in fact, translate
into that kind of positive eco-
nomic spin for the country.

“There continues to be uncer- .

tainty going forward and we
have to operate in the context
of that uncertainty,” said the
minister. ;

The $700 billion bail-out is
intended to buy defaulted mort-
gages, and in essence increase
the credit flow in the US mar-
ket. Analysts predict that, once
funds from the bail-out begin
to filter into the credit market
and other sectors, American
companies and corporations will

then be placed in a position to

not only become stabilised, but
also expand.

With this récent reassurance
in the sustainability of a sound
economic environment in the
US, Bahamians will have to
wait and see how the local econ-
omy will be affected.

Ministry of Education launches

Local Girl Guides
on target to build
state-of-the-art
heatquarters

THE Bahamas Girl Guides
Association recently accepted:

two donations totalling
$60,000 from the Shop Com-

mittee,andthe Luncheon}

Committee of the organisa-
tion.

The funds are earmarked
for the building of a $ 1.5 mil-
lion multi-purpose headquar-
ters for the Association,
which will be located just
southwest of its present office
on West Bay Street and Mar-
cus Bethel Way.

President of the Bahamas
Girl Guides Association Dr
Gail Saunders thanked the

committees for their generous

donations and Clarice
Granger for her tireless effort
and committment to the
building project.

Dr Saunders said that the
building will replace the use
of the current structure which
they have utilised since 1946.
The historical building was
used during the war to house
soldiers who violated the
tules of their service.

The building still has its
original cells and limestone
walls that show the history of
the structure.

Dr Saunders said that
Alvan Rolle, of Alvan K and

for visiting guests from the
Family Islands and abroad.

Anita Bernard, chairperson

of the groups’ Building Com-

mittee, said that the funds sig-

programme, and that they will :

be targeting every sector and
former Girl Guides to assist
them in their mission.
The groundbreaking cere-
mony took place yesterday.
The Girl Guide organisa-
tion caters to girls from the

age of five to 16, assisting with

the building of character,
teaching them to enjoy the
outdoors and give service to,
others and country, providing
them with leadership skills
and problem solving tech-
niques.

Elma Garraway, member
of the training team, said that
the organisation trains the
girls to become good women,
and ultimately good citizens.

It is estimated that over
30,000 girls have passed
through the local Girl Guides
Association.

EDUCATION Minister Carl
Bethel is appealing to parents to
turn off the televisions and
make time each day to read to
and with their child or children.

Mr Bethel made this appeal
on Thursday as he officially
launched the national reading
programme “Read to Lead” at
the Holy Trinity Activity Cen-
tre, Stapledon Gardens.

The “Read to Lead” initia-
tive is a joint partnership
between the Ministry of Edu-
cation and the US Embassy in
Nassau. It is modeled after a

reading project at Woodcook °

Primary School that was started
in 2005 by former US Ambas-
sador John Rood and volun-
teers from the Embassy.

The programme presently
includes schools throughout
New Providence, Grand
Bahama, Abaco, Cat Island and
Eleuthera, and is expected to
expand to the remaining Fami-
ly Island districts in January of
2009.

Led by Education deputy
director Patricia Collins, the
organising committee for “Read
to Lead” has recruited over 600
volunteers to read to fourth,
fifth and sixth grade public
school students.

Representing a wide cross
section of the community, the
volunteers include persons from
churches, banks, the Royal
Bahamas Police Force, the Roy-
al Bahamas Defence Force, the
Scout Association, the Zonta
Club as well as Governors Gen-
eral, Archbishops and retired
persons.

Minister Bethel encouraged
more Bahamians in service
clubs and other business and
professional organisations to
adopt schools and become com-
munity readers.

He said, “It is only through
literacy and being able to read
that you can put yourselves on
the path for a successful, pro-
ductive and meaningful life. By
reading you will be on the road
to empowerment and you will
have a better chance of emerg-

ing as vibrant and productive
citizens rather than to resort to
crime or other negative activi-
ties.

“By reading you will get a sol-
id education that will help you
to know how to make the cor-
rect choices. We want to bring
reading back in style. We want
to make you excited about read-
ing because there is so much
you can learn by opening a
book,” said Minister Bethel.

He thanked the volunteers,
the US Embassy, the Volunteer
USA Organisation and the
organisers of “Read to-Lead”
for partnering with the Ministry
of Education in this venture.

Mr Bethel also extended
appreciation to Graycliff presi-
dent Paolo Garzaroli for his
donation of over 1,000 copies
of selected books.

In brief remarks Timothy
Zuniga-Brown, Charge
Affaires of US Embassy said,
“When. you are ready to read,
you are ready to succeed, and
when you are ready to succeed,
you are ready to lead.

“Get ready to read to lead.
Get ready to make your par-
ents and your teachers proud.
Get ready to show what every
child in the Bahamas is capa-
ble of doing and what they are
able to accomplish through
reading,” he said.

Mr Zuniga-Brown encour-
aged the students to get excited,

ing.

“Each of us has choices to
make in life. The more good
choices we make the more good
opportunities are presented to
us. One good choice we can
always make each and every
day, particularly at your age is
to read a book because reading
is the key to success and when
you are ready to read you will
all become leaders,” he said.

An estimated 1,000 students
representing New Providence
public primary schools, along
with Ministry of Education
teachers and officials, parents,
volunteers and the Royal
Bahamas Police Force Pop
Band were present at the offi-
cial launch of the reading pro-
ject.

Electricity surcharge
changes a relief for |

many GB residents

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock @tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - Grand Bahama residents
are relieved that the government is taking
steps to assist electricity consumers who in’
arrears as a result of high electricity and
fuel surcharge rates.

State Minister for Finance Zhivargo Laing
is in Grand.Bahama today meeting with
Grand Bahama Power Company officials
to find ways to bring relief to consumers
here.

Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham
announced in parliament last week that the
government would come to the aid of BEC
consumers through a social assistance plan to
restore electricity to disconnected residents.

He pledged that the government would
also assist disconnected consumers in Grand
Bahama.

Many consumers are facing tremendous
economic hardships in Freeport, which is
still recovering from the impact of three
major hurricanes which struck the island in

WITH the aim of making
every member of the Bain and
Grants Town community com-
puter literate by the year 2013,
the Mount Olive Baptist Church
this week officially opened a new
computer laboratory in the area.

The brainchild of Rev Dr CB
Moss, “Project Y13” is designed
to make technology accessible
to the entire community and to
allow persons to acquire at least
basic computer skills.

Residents of Bain and Grants
Town came out on Thursday
afternoon despite the rainy
weather just to get a glimpse of
what Project Y13 has to offer.

Rev Moss said that technology
provides powerful learning tools
that demand new skills and
understanding by anyone who
wants to function in this rapidly
changing world.

“We in the Bahamas, since we
too are a developing country, can
do no less than is being done in
developed countries and we can-
not afford to be left behind. So

Mount Olive Baptist opens new computer tab

2004 and 2005.

Despite the economic woes, the power
company has increased its rates citing the
high cost of fuel as the reason.

“T applaud the government for stepping
in and assisting Bahamians who are strug-
gling at this time,” said a school teacher.

“T am living with my mother and our
monthly light bill alone at one point was
$500 — that is too high especially when you
have other monthly obligations,” the
teacher said.

Cab driver David Jones believes govern-
ment should monitor and scrutinise the
rates charged by GB Power Company.

“I feel that the rates are a bit high and
government needs to put some restraints
on the Power Company. They should not
allow private companies to hike rates when-
ever they want to,” he said.

Mr Jones said while it is good that the
government is assisting consumers, resi-
dents must also try to conserve energy.

“We welcome the assistance, but in the
meantime we got to educate our people
about conserving energy because this is



worldwide problem,” he said.

Mr Jones stressed that government must
educate residents about the importance of
energy conservation. He noted that there
are things residents can do to save power,
including adjusting the settings on their
appliances at home.

Another cab driver, who identified him-
self as “Winky” commended the govern-
ment for coming to the aid of struggling.
consumers like himself.

He said that the power bill at his one
room house has jumped from $102 to $500
in the last month. ;

“The power rates are outrageous,” he
said. “I think they are charging us double

_ for the fuel surcharge. I think it is timely the

government is stepping in to help Bahami-
ans,” he said.

Minister Laing said government is also
concerned about the businesses on Grand
Bahama, especially those at Port Lucaya.

He said government is talking with Grand
Bahama Port Authority to try and get some
relief for the merchants who operate in that
area.

WHEN Ting Ting Wang
began taking English as a child
in elementary school, she nev-
er imagined her new language
would take her from a small
province in Beijing to teach-
ing Business Studies at West-
minster College in New Provi-
: dence. Yet, today she and the

“other members of staff are
sharing their love of teaching
and appreciation of cultural
diversity as the school cele-
brates World Teachers Day,
: an event celebrated in more
: than 100 countries around the

world on October 5.

The academic institution
located on Blake Road boasts
several trained teachers who
help bridge cultural bridges
from kindergarten all the way
up to grade 12.

Some of the educators hail
from countries as far away as
China, Japan and the Philip-
pines, while others have come
from the United States, Cana-
da, Cuba, Jamaica, St Lucia
and the Republic of Guyana.

: The remaining teachers pride
: themselves in being from sev-
: eral Bahamian islands. They
: chose to celebrate World
: Teachers Day on Friday
: instead of Sunday.

: “We are truly honoured to
: have teachers from several
: countries making up our fac-
ulty,” said Dr Daphne Cooper.

“Today, we celebrate our
melting pot of cultures because
it diversifies our student body.
We celebrate our teachers and
we appreciate them and all
that they are doing in trans-
forming today’s children into
tomorrow’s leaders.

“At many schools, places as



far away as China and as close
as Cuba are simply locations
on maps - but at Westminster
College our students get to see
people from those places, hear
their accents, taste their foods,
learn their way of life and lis-
ten to their experiences that
differ from the typical Bahami-
an life,” Dr Cooper said.

Many of the teachers at
Westminster agree that their
presence makes a difference in
the lives of the young students,
especially those who seek to
travel abroad to expand their
horizons, to further educate
themselves or even make
themselves more marketable
in their careers.

“Through their teachers,
these students get to see peo-
ple that is possible for Bahami-
ans to make their mark on the

‘world stage,” said Dr Cooper.

“They see that there will be
success in’ their lives if they
strive to master an apprecia-
tion of language,.culture and
a sound education in order to
go out there into the world and
compete with international
counterparts.” :

World Teachers’ Day was
inaugurated in 1994 to com-
memorate the signing of the
UNESCO/ILO recommenda-
tion concerning the Status of
Teachers on 5 October 1966.
Today, More than 100 coun-
tries celebrate World Teach- .
ers’ Day on October 5, a day
set aside by the world commu-
nity to celebrate teachers and
the central role they play in
nurturing and guiding infants,
children, youth and adults
through the life-long learning
process.

we wanted to provide some
incentive to the learning of com-
puter skills to the residents of
this community and that is why
we opened this lab,” he said.

Rev Moss said it is his view
that people his community, and
throughout the Bahamas, are
desperately in need of something
to motivate them, point them in
a direction and encourage them
to go for it.

Computer instructor for the
project, Cyrus Gardiner, said that
organisers are trying to get all of
the residents of the Bain and
Grants Town area more involved
in the computer and information
age, not only for themselves but

“We are aware that children
are more knowledgeable of com-
puters and are not afraid to learn.
The parents are more prone to
say ‘don’t touch that’ or ‘I don’t
want to touch that’. We are try-
ing to help them bridge that gap
and it’s a better way to help them
to communicate with their chil-

.dren and it keeps the children

puters are important, not only

cation, but for employment.

Course for
volleyball
referees

fH By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

THE Bahamas Volleyball
Federation (BVF), under the
Olympic Solidarity Movement,
has announced a week-long
course for referees at the Kendal
Isaacs Gymnasium and the Hen-
ry Crawford Fitness Center.

The clinic, scheduled for Octo-
ber 8-14, will be held in con-
junction with Bahamas Olympic
Association, the Ministry of
Youth, Sports and Culture and
the International Volleyball Fed-
eration.

“A few months ago, we were
successful in getting two of our
seasoned referees certified as
international officials and now
they are qualified to officiate at
any level from the Olympics
downwards,” said Don Cornish,
president of the BVF.

“What we’re trying to do, in
keeping with our programme, is
to ensure that those persons in
those lower tiers, can begin the
process, which is a three-year
course.”

Tom Blue, according to Cor-
nish, will conduct the clinic for
officials and coaches. Blue, who
serves on the council for the
International Volleyball Feder-
ation, will be in town on October
6.

Blue will conduct the course
with the assistance of two of the
Bahamas’ newest international
certified referees, Linslow Miller
and Kirk Farquharson.

With the Ministry of Educa-
tion and the Principals Associa-
tion noting that beginning in the
2009/10 school year all coaches
will have to be certified to coach
their teams, Cornish said this
will be a golden opportunity for
the high school coaches to par-
ticipate. ~* .

“There is an introductory cost,
but it is a certification course for
their programme,” he said. “I
noticed that the Ministry of Edu-
cation is requiring that. So those
individuals who wish to offici-
ate and who wish to get more
knowledge on how to manage a
match and to officiate at higher
levels, not just at the schools,
but higher developmental lev-
els, they can have a chance to
learn the basic skills.”

Cornish said it doesn’t make
sense having strong competition
when the officiating is not up to
par. This, he said, is a step in
that direction as they ensure that
both levels excel at the same
time.

He also noted that New Prov-
idence Volleyball Association

‘president DeVince Smith has
obtained his level IJ coaching
certification from a course he
recently attended in Santo
Domingo and he’s working with
the national and junior develop-
ment programmes.

“We’re hoping to continue
that level for the other officials,
who have gotten their level one,
a chance to take their certifica-
tion further,” Cornish said.

“So we are looking at incor-
porating more of these courses
as we look forward to taking our
sport to a much higher level.”





LaFleur gets three-
year suspension

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

s a result of

her unsports-

manlike con-

duct at the

36th Central
American and Caribbean
Bodybuilding and Fitness Fed-
eration Championships, light-
weight Lorraine LaFleur was
served with a three-year sus-
pension.

The decision, which included
a one-year suspension for fit-
ness competitor Shera Mackey
and a warning to male body-
builder Jay Darling, came at
an emergency meeting by the
Bahamas Bodybuilding and
Fitness Federation on Thurs-
day night.

Danny Sumner, president of
the federation, made the stun-
ning triple announcement dur-
ing a press conference at Mys-
tical Gym yesterday. He was
accompanied by vice president
Dereck Bullard and public
relations officer Chevy Roker.

Referring to the LaFleur
drama, Sumner said the “ugly
scene” was witnessed in the
front of Javier Pollack, vice
president of International Fed-
eration of Bodybuilders, Min-
ister of Sports Desmond Ban-
nister, the CACBBFF presi-
dent Giovanni Arendez and
Christine Williams, IFBB exec-
utive assistant. ;

“What transpired was an
ugly scene and we consider it
an ugly scene,” he charged.
“During the presentation of
the medals, Javier Pollack
extended his hand to Lorraine
LaFleur to put up along with

LORRAINE LaFleur
in competition...



the other females in announc-
ing first, second and third.
“Prior to that, it was
announced that Lorraine had
come fifth. Her name was
called out first as fifth in her
category. What she did was she
jerked her hand away from Mr
Pollack, she muttered some
things while on stage, then she
proceeded to walk towards the
judges table where she used
her two index fingers making
some not too positive jesters
and stormed off the stage.”
Sumner, who also serves as
president of the Antilles Body-

building Federation, said he
apologised to the dignitaries
for LaFleur’s behaviour. He
said LaFleur broke a number
of laws in the federation’s con-
stitution by acting the way she
did and her attitude will not
be condoned by the federation.

In addition to her suspen-
sion, Sumner said LaFleur
must also submit a letter of
apology to Pollack, Arenedez
and Bannister. On Monday, he
said LaFleur submitted a letter
of apology to him, on the fed-
eration’s behalf, expressing
regret and remorse for her

e Shera Mackey suspended for a year
e Warning issued to Jay Darling

actions.

“Her suspension is a clear
indication that this federation
will not tolerate or condone
any such action by any mem-
ber, no matter how talented
you are,” said Sumner.

“Last year, we won a gold
medal in Aruba and looking
at her talent, we thought that
we could take her forward. But
we will not take anybody for-
ward with that characteristic
and attitude. We will discipline

‘anybody who violates the
rules.”

Therefore, Sumner said they
also suspended Mackey for
one year after she failed to
appear on stage to compete in
the final of the fitness compe-
tition, which is mandatory
unless there is a legitimate
excuse and one wasn’t given.

“Her name was submitted,
her name was called by the
chief marshall and she was a
no show,” Sumner said.

“She came to the show late,
two of my executives told her
to go in the back so that she
can have the opportunity to go
on stage...She never did.
Instead she went inside and sat
down. That is unbecoming. We
can’t have this type of thing
happening. That is why we
have to suspend her for one
year. If we didn’t do it, the
IFBB would have done it.”

In Darling’s case, Sumner
said Darling received a warn-
ing letter after making remarks
in the media because he didn’t
receive financial assistance

BOA officers fitting in with their roles





@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter ‘
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

IF you’re wondering if the newly elect-
ed officers of the Bahamas Olympic
Association find themselves in a conflict

of interest by serving as presidents of

their respective federations, think again.
During a press conference yesterday
at the DHL head office; four of the exec-
utives put the issue in perspective as they
continue to work towards the integra-
tion of their particular roles in office.
Wellington Miller, BOA president, also
president of the Amateur Boxing Feder-
ation, said the team for the Common-
wealth Youth Games was able to be

assembled in such a short-time because
“we are all here.”

“Our vice president Mike Sands was
able to go directly to speak to his people,
I was able to go directly to speak to my
people, swimming was able to go direct-
ly, and we were able to get information,”
Miller said.

“Nobody was left out. It was discussed
openly and everybody left happy. So I
think it’s going to work fast and quick
for us.”

Said Bahamas Volleyball Federation
president Don Cornish: “The manage-
ment of those sports and the develop-
ment of a higher level could be better
managed if you do have that direct con-
tact,” he said.

“In terms of selecting teams, obvious-
ly there will be perceptions, but I think
because of the fact that this is a trans-
parent process, I don’t think it’s possible
for anybody to say or refute the fact that
we didn’t go out.”

‘Tennis and wrestling, two of the sports

_ affiliated with the BOA, doesn’t sit

around the executive table, but Cornish
said they have been given an opportuni-
ty to do so.

As mandated by the International
Olympic Charter, secretary general
Romell Knowles said the make up of the
executive board is expected to come from
the member associations.

Commonwealth Youth Games: 1 5-member team ratified

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
Dstubbs@tribunemedia.net

ALTHOUGH they have had
a short period to work in since
taking office, the newly elected
Bahamas Olympic Association
(BOA) ratified a 15-member
team that will travel to the
Commonwealth Youth Games.

The games are slated for
October 12-18 in Pune, locat-
ed in the western Indian state
of Maharashtra, about 200 kilo-
meters south-east of the state
capital Mumbai.

Headed by Chef-de-Mission
Don Comish, the team is made
up of competitors in swimming,
boxing, athletics and tennis.
Other disciplines were consid-
ered, but the BOA said they
were not prepared for the short
notice.

Yesterday, during a press
conference at DHL, the BOA
released the names of the team
that will leave on Tuesday. Cor-
nish, however, is scheduled to

travel Sunday.

BOA president Wellington
Miller said since coming on
board in July, they were quite

busy with trying to get Jackie’

Edwards reinserted on the team
for the XXIX Olympic Games.

He noted that once Cornish
was appointed as the Chef-de-
Mission, he was able to start
working right away with get-
ting the team ready for the
Commonwealth Youth Games.

¢ Swimming, coached by Iva
Russell, will comprise of McK-
ayla Lightbourne, Jenna Chap-
lin and John Bradley.

° Boxing, coached by Arthur
Missick, features Kellen Mis-
sick and Ronald Woodside Jr.

e Athletics, coached by
Stephanie Rahming, will show-
case Rashad Brown (400) and
Deshona Burnside and Ken-
neth Wallace-Whitfield (both
in the 800).

e Tennis, coached by Gior-
gio Baldacci, will be made up of
Johnathan Taylor and Kevin
Major.

BOA’s vice president, Mike
Sands, who also serves as the
president of the Bahamas Asso-
ciation of Athletic Associations,
said the Commonwealth Youth
Games is a prelude to the Com-
monwealth Games to be staged
in India next year.

Compete

He said: “Anytime there is
an opportunity that we can pro-
vide for young athletes to com-
pete, we have to take advan-
tage of it because that’s what
we’re in the business for. We
always say athletes first.”

Sands said that as a result of

the short notice, they were able
to consult directly with the asso-
ciations once the recommenda-
tions of the athletes were sub-
mitted and it worked out per-
fectly because of their direct
involvement in both the BOA
and their associations.
Cornish, who serves as a vice
president of the BOA and pres-
ident of the Bahamas Volley-

ball Federation, said when they
took office, one of their major
commitments was develop-
ment.

“We spend a lot of time
among ourselves on how we are
going to do this. But we were
able toscome together and
come up with a good conclu-
sion,” he stressed.

“This is a limited event in
terms of the general participa-
tion of federations in the
Bahamas. When you think
about badminton, we don’t play
that, for example. ‘Table tennis
is one of the sports on the list
and we're not going to partici-
pate in that because that is not
an Olympic-type sport.”

Cornish said they decided to
go with the four sports men-
tioned because they felt those
are going to be the best that
the Bahamas can be represent-
ed in at the games, based on
the fact that their athletes
would be in better positions to
compete.

“The only one that was on

the bubble, but came in late
was wrestling because they did-
n't have athletes who were
competition ready,” he said.

“But they shared with us that
they will bé ready for the next
competition.”

Secretary General Romell
Knowles, who is also the
Bahamas Softball Federation
president, said this is an oppor-
tunity for those disciplines that
have not been included in the
{rip to get ready for the next
games, “LT see this really for
those persons who play table
tennis and wrestling and the
rest of those sports that was
mentioned before and is not
traveling, to organise them-
selves in some type of body, so
that when the team travels
again, we can identify them.”

Knowles said they will be
putting together a database of
Olympic and non-Olympic
sports so that they will be in a
better position to have athletes
ready to compete as soon as
games like this one come up.

Jay Darling

from the federation.

But Sumner said the federa-
tion is operating an amateur
sport and is not in a position to
“pay athletes,” only to help
with a small stipend which they
have been doing for the past
three years.

“The only bodybuilders who
could demand money are Joel
Stubbs, Gena Mackey and
Natasha Brown because they
are professionals,” Sumner
charged.

“But there is no other body-
builder who could demand
funding. It’s not in the consti-
tution of the IBFF. Any ath-
lete receiving money and is an
amateur is in violation of that
rule and could be suspended.”

For the championships,
Sumner said} the federation
spent at least $300 on each of
the 22:athletes on the team,
providing them with their uni-
forms and supplements to-help
them with their training.

“So there’s no need for the
athletes to go crying to the
media for funding,” he said.
“We cannot pay any athlete to
compete as an amateur.”

Both Bullard and Roker
indicated that they fully sup-
ported the decisions.

Broncos kicker
filling in nicely
for Elam

® By PAT GRAHAM
AP Sports Writer

ENGLEWOOD, Colorado
(AP) — The Denver Broncos
aren’t missing Jason Elam, thanks
to Matt Prater.

Prater has been steady this sea-
son — very Elam-esque — hitting
nine of 10 field goals, including
three from beyond 50 yards. He
also leads the league in scoring
with 41 points.

This from an unproven kicker
who had only one field goal on
his resume before this season.
This from a 24-year-old trying to
replace one of the best in league
history and the Broncos’ all-time
leading scorer.

Yet Prater never felt the pres-
sure of taking the place of Elam,
who kicked four game-winners
last year.

“I know a lot of people were

" uncertain after having Jason here
for so long,” said Prater; who fre-
quently sends text messages to
Elam seeking advice. “They were
spoiled, having a guaranteed kick-
er like that. I had to go out and
show I could do it.”

The Broncos were willing to
allow Elam to escape to Atlanta
in the offseason because of the
promise they saw in Prater. He
had a booming leg but needed to
work on his accuracy, much like a
young Elam when he entered the
NFL.

So far, that hasn't been a prob-
lem.

“T feel like I’ve been pretty con-
sistent,” said Prater, who’s tied
for the AFC lead with seven
touchbacks on kickoffs. “I’m try-
ing to do the same routine. I even
try to breathe the same before
each kick.”

Now if he can only get the
opposing fans from riding him.

‘He hit 56- and 51-yard field
goals.in a 33-19 loss at Kansas
City last Sunday, yet a fan parked
right next to his kicking net
wouldn’t let him forget the 28-
yard attempt he pulled right.

“He said: ‘Jason wouldn’t have
missed it,’” Prater recounted with
a grin. “I’m going to hear that for
the rest of the year.”

Perhaps even the rest of his
career in Denver.

But that’s life in trying to
replace a kicker of Elam’s ilk.

“He set the standard here for
kickers. You’ve got to appreciate
what Jason’s done,” special teams
coordinator Scott O’Brien said.
“Matt just has to be Matt.”

BOA, from 11

“This process for us began
some two years ago and I can
tell you that I’ve served as pres-
ident of the BSF for nine years
and two years ago I can say that
we have developed a common
bond and we sit around like
blood brothers,” he said.

“Do we have the politics of
sports? I believe so. We have
very heated discussions, but at
the end of the day, the passion
and the wanting to do the right
thing always, always succeed.
We have a number of federa-
tion executives from the vari-
ous disciplines and there is no
curry favouritism.”

Knowles said they try to do
right because their own man-
date going into office was to be
a very “active and athlete-
friendly executives and we
intend to do that or we will fail.”

For those that are concerned,
Knowles said they should have
no worry because they are all
committed to doing whatever
is necessary to make the associ-.
ation work.

Mike Sands, another BOA
vice president, said while the
constitution of the BOA doesn’t
state specifically who should be
elected to office, it does state
that the majority should come
from the federations and asso-
ciations.

As the BAAA president,
Sands said they have made it a
point to put the athletes first in
whatever they do and a clear
example of this was the incident
with Jackie Edwards when they
lobbied to get her back on the
Olympic team and they request-
ed that the athletes line up in
front of the executives during
the march pass at the games in
Beijing, China in August.

“There are no agendas, other
than athletes first,” Sands said.
“The games are about the ath-
letes. Everything we do will be
in the best interest of the. ath-
Jetes.

“We might not be right all
the time, but the decisions we
make are in the best interest of
the athletes. Without the ath-
letes, there won’t be any feder-
ations and if there are no fed-
erations, there won’t be any
BOA.”

Packers try to fix
running problems

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin
(AP) — The Green Bay
Packers’ rushing numbers are
up from the same point in the
season last year.

That’s not saying much,
however.

Through four games, the
Packers have struggled run-
ning the football and even
holding onto it, so greater
attention is being made in

practice this week to try to

rectify the situation.
“We do more before and

after practice now because .

that’s what you have to
emphasize,” running backs
coach Edgar Bennett said
Thursday. “So, we’ll contin-
ue to emphasize that and cor-
réct the problem.”

The issue of ball security
has been a focal point in the
extra drills on the practice
field.

Running back Ryan Grant
has fumbled the football away
in Green Bay’s last two
games. Both turnovers were
caused by direct hits from a
defensive player on the ball.

“It’s frustrating to see it two

_ weeks in a row,” offensive

coordinator Joe Philbin said.
“We’ve got to have better pad
level on contact. We’ve got
to keep two hands on the ball
when we’re in traffic.”

Grant’s most recent fum-
ble was returned for a touch-
down by Tampa Bay’s Jer-
maine Phillips in the Bucca-
neers’ 30-21 win over the
Packers on Sunday.

Grant also fumbled on the
second play of the game the
previous week against Dallas,
which handed the Packers
their first loss.

“What it boils down to is

fundamentals,” Bennett said.

“We have to clean up our

fundamentals. I say we

cause it’s my responsibility
to make sure we’re always
functioning at a high level as
far as from a fundamental
standpoint.

“Those two plays, we were
not. And, we are cleaning that

situation up. It’s more funda-
mentals.”

The recent miscues have
magnified the struggles the
Packers have endured in run-
ning the ball this season.

They are averaging 93.5
yards per game, ranking 23rd
in the NFL. Green Bay also is
in the bottom half of the
league with an average of 3.9
yards per carry.

Veteran right tackle Mark
Tauscher didn’t pinpoint one
area as being a trouble spot.

‘We have to block up bet-
ter up front,” he said. “I think
it’s a unit thing, it’s not just

needs to play better. Every-

to execute better.”

surprisingly off with Grant as
the lead back. Grant led the
league the final three months
of last season, including the
playoffs, with 1,159 rushing
yards.

After missing all offseason
practices this year because of
a contract dispute with the
Packers and then suffering a
hamstring injury early in the
preseason after signing a
lucrative multiyear deal,
Grant has been far from pro-
ductive.

He’s gained a total of only
186 yards in four games, aver-
aging 3.4 yards per carry.

Grant has been held to 20
yards in 15 carries twice in the
last three games.

“T know for sure some of it
is what’s been out in front of
him (with the blocking) hasn’t
been great a lot of times. It’s
hard to make yards,” Philbin
said. “There were certainly
times last year when he made
yards on his own, which every
good back does.”

Philbin noted how Green
Bay’s running game was ina
bigger quandary after four
games last year.

The Packers were mired at
the bottom of the league
rankings with averages of 54.3
yards per game and 2.7 yards
per rush. Then-rookie Bran-
don Jackson, not Grant,
opened the season as the
main back.

“To say Brandon Jackson
wasn’t running the ball well
there, that would be part of it
maybe, but certainly not the
whole story,” said Philbin,
adding of the apparent causes
for the struggles this season.

“T think it’s a little bit of
everything. I think it’s some
of our blocking. Some of it
has been execution. Our
offensive balance and our
flow hasn’t been as good.”

NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) —
The Tennessee Titans are very greedy.

They lead the NFL in turnovers
with 12 and in points allowed per
game through their 4-0 start. They
also have 15 sacks, and it’s just not
enough.

“More sacks, more interceptions,”
linebacker Keith Bulluck said. “We
need to score more, you know what I
mean? This weekend would be great.
We know we're going to have to make
a play to change the course of the

game. We need to continue to do

things like that. It gets contagious.”

The Titans talked all offseason |

about how they want to be the NFL’s
best defense in 2008. They’re not there
yet in most defensive statistics, but
they see plenty of room for improve-
ment.

“We're efficient, productive,” coach
Jeff Fisher said. “We get the ball back
right now. I don’t think we’ve played
nearly as well as we're capable of play-
ing.”

The Titans will get a chance Sunday
when they visit Baltimore (2-1) to see
how they measure up. The Ravens
lead the NFL in five different cate-
gories including yards allowed (186.7)
per game, are second to the Titans in
scoring defense (14.3 points per game)
and are on a franchise-record streak of
holding opponents to 17 points or few-
er in seven straight regular-season
games.

The two defenses are playing so
well it brings back memories of 2000
when the Ravens set an NFL record
by allowing just 165 points in a season.
The Titans ranked second in that cat-
cgory but first in yards allowed. Fish-
er watched the Ravens in Monday
night's 23-20 overtime loss at Pitts-
burgh and was impressed by what he
saw.

“Their defense is back. Their
defense is kind of reminiscent of the
old days. So it’s a very big challenge
for us,” he said.

Titans quarterback Kerry Collins
saw the Ravens’ 2000 defense up close

and personal in the Super Bowl where
he finished with a 7.1 passer rating
after being sacked four times and
intercepted four times.

“I don’t think it was fair they
allowed them to play with 15 because
it seemed like there were 15 of them
as fast as they were and as many plays
as they made,” Collins said. “It’s one
I'd like to forget, but it’s a great learn-
ing experience.”

Derrick Mason, who played with
Tennessee against that 2000 Ravens
defense, now is in Baltimore, and the
receiver said things have changed. But
he sees the same relentless attitude
in both defenses today. He also
expects the Titans to pressure Balti-
more rookie quarterback Joe Flacco a
lot, especially since Pittsburgh got five
sacks.

“It starts with the guy up the middle
in (Albert) Haynesworth and blocking
him and kind of going from there.
They have a very good defensive line,
I think one of the best in the league, so
we have to figure out a way to stop
those guys from getting to the quar-
terback,” Mason said.

Haynesworth, who had an All Pro
season in 2007, already has five sacks

to lead all defensive tackles. He was
named the AFC defensive player of
the month for September on Thursday
and is one sack off matching his career
high. He had seven tac kles in last
week's 30-17 win over Minnesota in
which the Vikings ran for only 80
yards.

But the Titans, who are giving »p
263.5 yards offense and 86.8 yacds
rushing per game, see lots of v hat
Bulluck calls dumb mistakes like giv-
ing up big plays that must be correct-
ed. ;

Adrian Peterson broke loose for a
28-yard touchdown in last week's 30-
17 win over Minnesota, Rookie Steve
Slaton slipped through a w ould-be

tackle for a loss and ran 50 yards ina
31-12 win over Houston.

“We know there’s no such thing as
perfection when it comes to this
sport,” Bulluck said. “Every individual
on this defense tries to come as close
to perfection as they can.’

Knicks’
effries
breaks

fibula

mâ„¢ By HOWARD BECK
c.2008 New York Times
News Service

SARATOGA SPRINGS,
N.Y. In a signature
moment of a promising week,
Jared Jeffries elevated and
slapped away a layup attempt
by Stephon Marbury late
Thursday. The play exempli-
fied Jeffries’ rise in the
Knicks’ lineup, but it also end-
ed his training camp, and his
bid for a starting job.

Jeffries landed awkwardly
after blocking the shot and
limped off the court in pain.
Hours later, an X-ray showed
he had broken-his left fibula.
He will be out for six to eight
weeks.

Thus ended one of the feel-
good stories of training camp.
Jeffries had been a marginal
bench player under Isiah
Thomas, but he had fast
become one of coach Mike

D’Antoni’s favorites in the ©

frontcourt. Jeffries ran with
the first team all week, pri-
marily at center, and was
assured of a major role in
D’Antoni’s rotation when the
season opens October 29.

Instead, Jeffries will enter
November on the inactive list
and will miss the first two to
four weeks of the season. The
injury means that Zach Ran-
dolph, who entered camp with
much to prove, will probably
secure a Starting job in the
frontcourt. The absence of
Jeffries could also benefit
Eddy Curry, who has been out
all week with an illness and
was falling behind his team-
mates.

Moments after he injured
his leg, Jeffries: took an opti-
mistic tone, smiling and insist-
ing that he would be OK.

“When I landed, it just felt
like my muscle tightened up,”
he said. “It’s pretty painful.
V'll be all right. I hate having
anything like this. I don’t han-
dle pain well.”

Even with his leg wrapped
in ice, Jeffries sounded buoy-
ant about reviving his career
under D’Antoni, who values
intelligent, athletic, multi-
skilled players.

“He really knows how to
play basketball, and that’s
what we need,” D’Antoni
said. D’Antoni has compared
Jeffries to Boris Diaw, who
languished on the Atlanta
Hawks’ bench before blos-
soming under D’Antoni in
Phoenix.

“It’s been a total boost for
me,” Jeffries said. “He’s actu-
ally playing me how Isiah said
he was going to when I came
in here. He’s going to allow
me to run the floor and just
play basketball.”

That moment will have to
wait awhile.

five days

injury

DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) —
Chicago Bulls forward Joakim
Noah is out with an eye injury.

The team says Noah will
likely miss five days after
being poked in the left eye

day.

The team said on Friday
that the injury left Noah with
blood in the front chamber of
his eye. He’ll be monitored
daily by the Bulls’ medical
staff,

Noah averaged 6.6 points

Stern responds to
report on referees

NEW YORK (AP) — Tim
Donaghy is in prison, and
David Stern doesn’t want any-
one else in the NBA to get in
trouble because of gambling.

So Stern responded to a
report on NBA referees Thurs-
day by vowing to build the
“most effective possible sys-
tem” to monitor illegal activity
and preserve the game’s
integrity.

“The best we can do is do
the best we can, and that’s all
we can do. And if I spoke of
confidence, I would be exag-
gerating,” Stern said on a con-
ference call. “The only thing
I’m confident of is that if
there’s anything intelligent to
be done by the sports league,
that will be in the first rank of
rules and procedures and
analyses.”

The commissioner ordered
the investigation last August
after former referee Donaghy
was accused of.betting on
games he officiated and pro-
viding inside information to
gambling associates to win
their bets. Donaghy began
serving a 15-month sentence
on September 23 at a federal
prison in Pensacola, Florida.

Stern promised to imple-
ment all the recommendations
included in former federal
prosecutor Lawrence Pedow-

itz’s review of the NBA’s ref- .

erees operations department,
the result of a 14-month probe

that cost the league several mil- .

lion dollars.
““We will be up there with
the very best. No one will have

a better system than we do,”

Stern said. “But all of that said,
to the idea that, you know,
criminal activity will exist every
place else in the world except
in sports is just something that
we can’t guarantee. But we’re
going to have the most effec-
tive possible system that’s ever
been devised.”

The report recommended it
include: a hot line to anony-
mously raise questions about
gambling and game integrity
issues; making available any
complaints the league receives
about refs — beginning in the
2008-09 playoffs — to both

‘teams to avoid suspicions of

bias; requiring officials to annu-
ally report their contacts
among players and team per-
sonnel to the league so it can
monitor fraternization.

The league already has made
a number of changes, includ-
ing restructuring its referees
operations department and
began posting officiating
assignments the morning of
games.

The report also suggests
mandatory gambling education
for players.

“We believe that gambling
can expose the players and the
league to significant risks, and

operations, asks questions about a

therefore it is important that
players be educated regarding
those risks,” the report said.

The 116-page document dis-
puted Donaghy’s allegations of
specific misconduct and
favouritism toward certain
players and teams, but warned
“because the potential for ref-
eree bias remains a threat to
the integrity of the game, the
league can do more.”

It agreed with the federal
government that there was no



evidence Donaghy made any

calls to affect the outcome of

games after studying his work
in 17 of them, including 16 dur-
ing the 2006-07 season in which
it was believed Donaghy made
picks.

It also backed the govern-
ment’s stance that referee Scott
Foster wasn’t involved in any
of Donaghy’s misconduct.
Donaghy called Foster 134
times from October 2006-April
2007, but the FBI and Pedowitz



Love makin
impression

m@ By JON KRAWCZYNSKI



MANKATO, Minnessota
(AP) — Aside from being tall,
Kevin Love doesn’t necessari-
ly look like a basketball player.

The six-foot-nine forward
has a frame that is a little on
the lumpy side. When he gets
moving down the court, he
doesn’t glide so much as he
lumbers, elbows out to his sides
and head bobbing.

Outward appearances alone,
including his skin colour, may
lump Love in with players like
Adam Keefe, Nick Collison or
even teammate Mark Madsen.
But the Minnesota Timber-
wolves’ rookie is showing ear-
ly in his first training camp that
he could be so much more:

“Kevin’s really underrated
tight now,” Wolves guard
Rashad McCants said. “TI think
they think of him as being
undersized and one of those
white boys that just has to go in
there and bang.’

“But Kevin has a very good
finesse game where he can step
out and handle the ball and
shoot the 3. I’m_ very
impressed.”

Love may have just turned
20 years old, but he has been
fighting the stereotype of the
big, slow, white guy for his

whole basketball career. He
averaged 17.5 points and 10.6
rebounds a game in his lone
season at UCLA and was
acquired by the Wolves in a
seven-player, draft-night trade
with Memphis that sent‘ USC
guard O.J. Mayo to the Griz-
zlies for Love and Mike Miller.

Reaction

Local reaction to the trade
was resoundingly negative,
with Timberwolves fans livid
that Kevin McHale would let
go of the silky smooth Mayo
in the deal. But the Timber-
wolves see Love as a player
more comparable to Wes
Unseld — an undersized pow-
er forward and one of the best
rebounders in league history
— than Brian Scalabrine.

“My middie name's Wesley
after Wesley Unseld,” Love
said. “ICs just been ingrained in
my blood.”

Love’s father, Stan, played
in the NBA for parts of four
years in the 1970s after being
the No. 9 pick in the 1971 NBA
draft.

Timberwolves coach Randy
Wittman has already started to
see that pedigree, pointing to
KkKevin Love's basketball
instincts that distinguish bin

sood
with

from most 20-year-olds.

“What ‘he brings on to the
floor, it’s hard to teach,”
Wittman said. “Being at the
right spot at the right time,
those types of things. He has a
knack for those things.”

Stan Love didn’t just teach
his son how to shoot, dribble
and rebound. The younger
brother of Beach Boys lead
singer Mike Love, Stan “did a
lot of crazy things in his life-
time,” Kevin Love said.

“He was a guy that kind of
lived the Beach Boy life with
my uncle (Brian Wilson). He
took it easy a little bit,” Kevin
Love said. “He taught me to
have work ethic. ve always
kind of been a self-starter, but
he was always that push in the
back for me.

“He just told me to put it all
out there on the court. And
when you're off the court, be
gractous, be a nice person.
‘That's some of the best advice
I’ve ever gotten,”

Though he grew up in Port-
land, Oregon, Love's laid-back
persona was the perfect fit for
California cool UCLA.

After one All-America sea-
son in Westwood, Love was

picked fifth overall on draft
night. But the Grizzlies really
coveted Mayo. When they

vided a reasonable explanation
for the calls.

“The report speaks for
itself,” said Lamell McMorris,

union.

lance writer Ken Powtak in

olves

offered up Miller in the deal,
and also agreed to take the
contracts of Marko Jaric and
Antoine Walker off Minneso-
ta’s hands, it was “a no brain-
er,” GM Jim Stack said.

Stack compared him to
Atlanta Hawks forward Al
Horford, and Love is already
showing his quick feet down
low that allow him to get great
position for rebounds. He can
shoot the ball from the perime-
ter, get out and run the floor
and prides himself on pinpoint
outlet passes that start fast
breaks.

“The first time I met Kevin,
the first thing he said to me is,
“You're going to love playing
with me,’” star forward Al Jef-
ferson said,

There are plenty of ques-
tions still to be answered. Love
acknowledges that he has
weaknesses on the defensive
end, and how he will jell with
Jefferson as part of a smallish
frontcourt is still a point of
intrigue.

“If there’s doubters, I'm
going to try my best to prove
them wrong,” Love said with a
shrug. “If there’s high expec-
tations, I’m going to try to

‘prove them right and then

some. We'll just have to wait
and see.”

IAAF ratifies
Bolt's three
pecorts

MONTE CARLO, Mona
co (AP) — Usain Bolt’s three
world records at the Beijing

‘Olympics were officially rati-

fied Friday by the track and
field world governing body.

The Jamaican sprinter set
new marks in the 100 and 200
meters and ran the third leg
of the 400-meter relay with
teammates Nesta Carter,
Michael Frater and Asafa
Powell.

Bolt ran 9.69 seconds in the
100 — while slowing down in
the final 10 meters — on Aug.
16 to beat his own mark of
9.72, set in New York on May
31. Four days later, he clocked _
19.30 in the 200 to improve
the record set by Michael
Johnson at the 1996 Atlanta
Olympics. The Jamaican relay
team ran 37.10 on August 22
to slice 0.30 off a mark set by
two American relay squads in
‘92 and ‘93.

The International Associa-
tion of Athletics Federations
also ratified Russian Yelena
Isinbayeva’s world pole vault
record of 16 feet, 6 3/4 inches
set in Beijing. She beat her
own mark of 16-6 1/2 set in
Monte Carlo on July 29.

Russian Gulnara Galkina-
Samitova’s steeplechase world
record of 8:58.81 in Beijing
also was made official.

Weightlifter

hanned for life

NEW DELHI (AP) — The
Indian weightlifting federation
imposed a lifetime ban on
Satheesha Rai for his second
doping offense.

The WFI announced the
ban Friday after re-examining
Rai’s case, which it had earli-
er closed without taking action
because he had retired.

Singh didn’t say why the
case was reopened. Reports
said it was demanded by the

World Anti-Doping Agency.

Rai tested positive for a
stimulant at the 2002 Com
monwealth Games, which
resulted in the tevocation of
his two gold medals and one
bronze. He returned to com-
petition after.serving a six-
month suspension, but tested
positive for the steroid
stanozolol at India’s National
Games last year.

The WFI imposed a lifetime
ban on female weightlifter
Prameelavalli following her
second doping offense during
last month’s national junior
championship.

The WFI also suspended
the Uttar Pradesh state asso-
ciation for one year and
imposed a fine after two ot its
lifters failed doping tests in
one year. Pramod Goswami
and Manjit Singh face two-
year suspensions.

Father stabbed

by his own son

Man is
critical
after
police
halt car

@ By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

A FATHER in his early 40s
was stabbed multiple times in
the chest by his son, said to be
in his 20s, at mid-day yesterday
near East Street and Sands
Road, according to police press
liaison officer Walter Evans.

He said the father might have
been trying to get to the hospi-
tal.

Mr Evans said detectives
travelling west on Sands Road
noticed a black Ford Expedi-
tion driving erratically and
decided to investigate.

When officers were able to
getia clear view of the two men
inside the vehicle, they noticed
that the man in the back seat
had one arm around the driver’s
neck and was swinging his oth-
er arm in a stabbing motion.

They then used their black
Crown Victoria to stop the
Expedition, both vehicles com-
ing to rest facing each other
bumper to bumper.

According to eyewitness
Ronald McKenzie of McKen-
zie’s Auto, the driver stumbled
out of the vehicle and collapsed
on to the sidewalk next to the
Ministry of National Security.
Meanwhile, officers fought to
subdue the man in the back
seat.

“He didn’t want to come out
of the jeep,” said Mr McKen-
zie. “They had to pull him out.”

Police later determined the
man was the victim’s son, who
they said is a Junior, bearing his
father’s name.

Officers were reluctant to
release the men’s names, as the
father is in hospital in critical
condition.

Mr McKenzie said the man

According to initial reports,
the driver of a 2000 Chevy
Impala had just left a private
function at Workers’ House
when a truck overtook and
stopped some distance ahead
on Tonique Williams Darling
Highway around 2.25 am. An
occupant of the truck got out
and fired shots from a shotgun
at the Chevy Impala, causing
damage to the vehicle.

US bailout
could help
Bahamian
economy

@ By LLOYD ALLEN
Tribune Staff Reporter

The passing into law of the
$700 billion bail-out package in
the United States yesterday
could have a positive effect on
the Bahamas’ ailing economy,
but Bahamians are still urged
to remain prudent with their,
spending, State Minister for
Finance Zhivargo Laing told
The Tribune.

The US House of Represen-
tatives yesterday passed an
unprecedented financial bail-
out plan, which many predict
will contribute tremendously to
re-directing the American econ-
omy toward stability.

With that bill now being
signed, local officials say that
although economic conditions
are expected to improve in the
American market, Bahamians
should remain prudent in their
spending, and continue to mon-
itor financial developments
locally and abroad.

Mr Laing said: “It is helpful
that they were able to resolve
that crisis, which clearly now

Customs corruption claims

ba

probe ‘nearing completion’

m= By TANEKA THOMPSON
Tribune Staff Reporter
tthompson@tribunemedia.net

INTERNAL investigations
into allegations of corruption
of involving two customs offi-
cers are "nearing completion",
according to acting Comptroller
of Customs Anthony Adderley.

When contacted this week,
Mr Adderley said the internal
investigative team was awaiting
“one or two" more reports
before wrapping up the investi-
gations. |

"We're looking into those,
we're pretty much wrapping it

up.

two more reports in and I think
we'd be in a position to deter-
mine which direction we will

then we will proceed along the
lines that are available to us
through our Act or General
Orders.

“First of all, all of the infor-
mation has got to be obtained
because the facts are very
important and then action
would be taken based on the
facts," said Mr Adderley.

“Once the results are in — that

He added that the depart-
ment is treating the claims as
allegations and will continue to
do so unless the investigation
proves otherwise.

Two weeks ago, The Tribune
first reported that the depart-
ment was probing allegations
involving a high-ranking cus-
toms officer who allegedly
"abused" his authority by
attempting to evade paying cus-
toms duties on goods shipped
to Nassau under his name.

The officer allegedly demand-
ed that a shipping agent delete
his name from the cargo mani-
fest.

Man charged on four
armed robbery counts

A MAN was remanded to
Her Majesty’s Prison yesterday
after being arraigned on multi-
ple armed robbery charges.

Pedro Antonio Lynes, 21, of
Christie Avenue was arraigned
before Magistrate Derrence
Rolle at Court Five in Bank
Lane on four counts of armed
robbery as well as charges of

burglary and causing harm. —,

According to court dockets,
it is alleged that on Tuesday
September 30, Lynes, while
being concerned with others
and armed with a handgun,
robbed Rosina Smith of $2,080
in jewellery and other personal
belongings as well as a Jaguar
vehicle.

It is also alleged that on the
same day while being concerned,
with others, Lynes robbed
Tavando Neely of $2,350 worth
of jewellery.

He was charged with causing
harm to Tavando Neely while

concerned with others.

It is further alleged that on
Tuesday, September 30, the
accused robbed Harlysa Simms
of a gold nugget ring valued at
$650 and a gold nugget chain
valued at $600.

The prosecution further
claimed that around 2am on

September 30, the accused,
being concerned with others,
broke into the home of Rosina
Smith on Christie Avenue.
Lynes was not required to
plead to the charge and was
remanded to Her Majesty’s
Prison. The case has been
adjourned to November 12.

EFFECTIVE OCTO

Internal documents seen by
The Tribune support these
claims.

Assistant Comptroller Clif-
ford Ferguson also confirmed
during an earlier interview that
the department was investigat-
ing a letter of complaint dated
September 8, which accused
another officer of breaching
procedure by allowing a man
and his family to leave the cus-
toms area at the airport with-
out "providing any declaration
to the officer; having their lug-
gage inspected; and having their
passports stamped".

The officers, whose identities






have been withheld, are still
working in their capacity with
the department although Mr
Ferguson said one of the offi-
cers has been restricted to desk
duty pending the results of the
probe.

A source within the depart- °
ment called for an external
investigation, fearing that nepo-
tism would taint any internal
probe.

Although the assistant comp-
troller said was "open" to such
an inquiry, yesterday Mr
Adderley declined to comment
on whether an outside investi-

gation is necessary.

There’s still time before the election

WITH nearly five weeks left, no one
should pay much attention to those who
say the presidential election is all but over.

Still, Sen. Barack ‘Obama’s gains in
recent opinion polls since the first presi-

dential debate are no doubt worrisome .

for backers of the McCain-Palin ticket.

Campaign spokespeople are trained to
accentuate the positive publicly, even if
someone has to give more candidly sober
assessments to candidates and high-level
campaign strategists behind closed doors.

Earlier this week, John McCain’s team
members looking for good news could
point to Gallup’s daily tracking poll and a
Washington Post/ABC national poll that
showed Barack Obama was still leading,
but by a smaller margin than in recent
prior instalments.

But to sell that as a champagne-cork
popper, either internally or in a spin room,
those McCain campaign spokespeople
would have to ignore polls from several
key battleground states — released on the
very same day — that showed Obama
expanding or taking over a lead in cru-
cial states. They’d have to also ignore that,
in the previously mentioned Gallup Rack-

ing poll, McCain had been dead ever;with:..
Obama less. than a week earlier —# the °

day before the first presidential debate. |

Those state polls showed Obama with
leads as great as eight points in Florida
and Ohio, both red states in 2000 and 2004
and ones in which Obama had consistent-
ly trailed in most prior polls. New polls
also showed Obama with a lead that
ranged from seven to 15 points in Penn-
sylvania, which went blue in the past two
elections but where the lead had been
shifting or within the’ most prior polls’
error margin.

So, does that mean buns camp spin-
meisters have an easier job looking at
polls, and then issuing statements that
make things seem rosy? Yes. But my
advice is that they should let the cham-
pagne chill for now, too. There’s lots of
time left.

However you read recent polling trends,
it is interesting and ironic that by mid-
week, the Republicans were looking

. toward vice presidential candidate Sarah
Palin’s debate Thursday night with Joe
Biden as their best immediate hope fora
game-changing occurrence to alter them.

Even as she read from note cards and
stuck to talking points instead of directly
answering questions, Palin survived that
debate without making major blunders or
exposing significant knowledge gaps.
MSNBC commentator Pat Buchanan
praised her performance, but suggested
that backers of the Republican ticket and
conservatives were breathing sighs of

relief.

Indeed, the much-anticipated debate
came at quite a critical time for Republi-
cans’ hopes for some good, fortune-chang-
ing news to be resting on the Alaska gov-
ernor’s shoulders.

The economic crisis and congressional
efforts to address it have been dominating
the news, as they should have.

But Palin’s image and credibility had
been suffering almost daily damage hits
from the strangely stretched-out release of
her interview with CBS anchor Katie
Couric, among other things. On the cable
news shows and the Internet, there was
endless chatter about a “Saturday Night
Live” comedy skit that made Palin look
hilariously shallow, even with laugh mate-
rial taken largely verbatim from her own
words. And leading conservative voices
such as columnists George Will and Kath-
leen Parker, and former Bush speechwriter
David Frum, made unequivocal utterances
that she is neither ready nor qualified.

Should Obama win, this campaign has
shown us that McCain and his chief strate-

_ gists are pretty good at “the blame game”

even when they profess to renounce it.
Just as clearly, this.campaign has shown
that McCain and his top advisers can and
will turn on their own.

But if five weeks from now they are
looking at a loss to Obama and assigning
blame to Palin, someone needs to call
them on it.

I'd be the last to claim that I understand
what it takes to sway a voter who is still
undecided in an election like this one,
where policy differences are so stark and
pronounced. But in the same time frame
as the first two debates and image-dam-
aging interviews and news stories about
Palin, McCain and his close inner circle
haven’t looked so good either.

Besides McCain’s pandering and infan-
tile threat to cancel his first debate, there
was their Wall Street Journal ad declaring
him the winner in that debate, that hap-
pened to show up on the newspaper’s Web
sii. before the debate even took place.

Days later, they dispatched numerous
allies and surrogates to news networks to
credit McCain’s “leadership” for bringing
about passage of the $700 billion bailout
bill. But oops. It went down in the first
House. vote, largely because it lacked sup-
port of Republican House members.

“Saturday Night Live” could have a field
day during its next several épisodes, using
no one other than McCain and his top
advisers for material.

Don’t back
down to
BIC union

EDITOR, The Tribune.

1 HAVE just read your article
pertaining to the response from
BTC union leader Mr Robert
Farquharson. This man in his
own admission told the Bahami-
an public that this was an indus-
trial action against the BTC
management and the Bahamian
government. Yet now, he’s try-
ing to spin this action that was
taken by BTC management as

an violation in the union’s |

agreement between manage-
ment and the government. So
the real question is, are the
rights of these poor Bahamians
who were forced to sit in this
traffic jam and lose hundreds
of dollars so the union could
flex their muscle or, is it the
poor BTC unionised worker
violated for following the
actions that I’m sure were
instructed to carry out by their
fearless leaders on the day in
question.

Perhaps the union should
take notice at the recent fallout
from General Motors. The

UAW ( United Auto Works)
which was the second strongest
and largest union in north
America, had a strong hold on
GM for many years. Every
three years the union would
wave there picket signs at the
management and force them to
give yet another increase in
their $65,000.00 plus yearly
wage, not to mention their lav-
ish pension, medical, dental-and
all these other expenses paid by
GM. Today those very same
union workers are or will be out
of a job.

If BTC union, leaders are so
concerned about the pay cut to
their members, then why not
pay your union-members the
funds that they have lost from
your “not so-called industrial
action”.

This is a milestone in the
Bahamas, if the BTC manage-

ment fold on this issue and
return these funds back to the
workers, it will set the stage for
further action by the other
unions in the Bahamas. How
can you chastise one union and
not the other, if they carry out
similar actions in the future?
Simply put, you can’t. ,

Wary of precedent set
by government subsidy

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I am certain that our erstwhile Prime Minister
means well when he announced that his admin-
istration would bring “relief” to the hard-pressed
Bahamian-consumer, viz-a-viz the high cost of
energy. Good intentidfis, however, are not what
keeps a national budget balanced or an economy
running smoothly.

Yes, the BEC surcharge is simply too high for

most consumers in residential and commercial

settings. We do not produce a single drop of oil in
The Bahamas, despite the occasional ballyhoo
about oil drilling prospects just off the coast of
Bimini and in. the Tongue of the Ocean. As a
result, we have little or no control of the costs of
oil or gasoline at the pumps locally.

The PM is setting an extremely bad precedent,
however, in that he is using taxpayers’ funds,
without their tacit or expressed permission, to
prop up the high electrical bills which face count-
less Bahamians.

Who authorized Mr Ingraham, with the stroke
of a pen, if that, to use my hard earned tax dollars
to do this? Where will the bail outs stop? Remem-
ber’‘the Royal Oasis fiasco and the millions of
tax payers dollars sent down the proverbial black
hole?

Lehman Brothers is now in bankruptcy and I
am certain that we will never recoup a single red
cent from that entity to “reimburse” the govern-
ment and innocent people of the nation. Just the
other day, when the cellular systems were down,
BaTelCo, gratuitously, doled out over a million
dollars in “free” air time to consumers.

Charity, in private and by individuals on a vol-

untary basis, is fine but when a government starts
to use tax payers’ monies to prop up another seg-
ment of society, at the tax payer’s expense, this in
my opinion is tantamount to “legal plunder” by
that government.

The FNM clearly has absolutely no workable
ideas as to how to bring real relief and hope to

- Bahamians. A bunch of hack doctors and self

appointed spin gurus surrounds the hapless PM
and he is now seemingly addicted to their bogus
advice.

The Small Business Association is of the view
that the FNM needs to do more, on the ground, to
encourage the creation of small sized businesses
(which traditionally run 70 per cent or more of the
economy) and access to business capital. Fake
and temporary “relief” with BEC is one thing
but what are the PM’s plans for the way forward?

God help The Bahamas if oil were to go
beyond B$175 per barrel or if there were to be a
tresh outbreak of hostilities in the Middle East. If
Iran were to be bombed by the USA or by Israel
the cost of crude oil would go off the chart. The
PM, of course, is not a global player but one of the
smallest fish in the geopolitical water hole. As
such, despite his histrionics and good intentions,
he, too, will eventually “fail” us.

Of course, we will have run the harrowing
gauntlet of the European Economic Partnership
Agreement (EPA) and the nuances, hidden and
overt, of a creeping Caribbean integration and
free movement of people, willy nilly.

GB Power Company and |

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock @tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - Power was restored to
some 200 consumers on Grand Bahama
yesterday as a result of an arrangement
reached between the government and
the Grand Bahama Power Company.

State Minister for Finance Zhivargo
Laing said the arrangement made with
power Officials in Freeport is similar to
the government’s electricity relief pro-
gramme for BEC consumers in New
Providence.

The arrangement, Mr Laing said, calls
for reconnected consumers to enter into
a plan with the GBPC to determine a
suitable arrangement for payment of
their debts.

“JT want to indicate that this is one-
time event just as the BEC interven-
tion was. So those persons who are
accommodated by this programme and
by the GB Power Company payment
plan are required to fulfill their obliga-
tion, and if they do not they will have to
face termination of their power sup-
ply,” he said.

Mr Laing was speaking at a press con-
ference held in the boardroom of the
GB .Power Company. GBPC CEO
Excell Ferrell and Anthony Lopez, vice
president of finance, were also present.

Mr Ferrell said in order to ensure
quickest restoration affected customers

or at Eight Mile Rock to confirm their
address and account specifics.

He noted that the payment plan
requires customers to pay 25 per cent of
what they owe now, with the reminder
to be paid over the next six months,
while continuing to pay the current bill.

Minister Laing said that persons who
have difficulty meeting the requirement
for the GBPC payment plan should vis-
it the Department of Social Services to
see if the government relief programme
can be extended to them.

In addition to this measure, the min-
ister said that government will extend
relief to the 15,000 residential con-
sumers on Grand Bahama by subsidis-
ing the fuel surcharge of GBPC.

This is estimated to cost the govern-
ment between $1 and $1.5 million, he
said.

Mr Laing said that from October to
December 31, in the case of any sur-
charge above 15 cents, the difference
will be paid by the government for res-
idents who consume no more than 800
kwh per month.

He said it covers at least 75 per cent
of the residential consumers in low to
middle income households on the
island. “ss

Mr Laing reported that the average
residential customer in Grand Bahama
uses 650 kwh a month — much than the
450 kwh by used by consumers in New
Providence. -

He said: “I am delighted that GBPC
has been so willing to work with gov-
ernment in this regard as it has in times
past, and to be in a position to offer
relief to consumers in Grand Bahama
impacted by the extraordinary high fuel
surcharge,” he said.

Minister Laing said the minister of
energy has appointed an Energy Com-
mission-to explore alternative energy
sources for the government.

“We have also been meeting with
the Inter-American Development Bank
and have discussed with them the
prospects for alternative forms of ener-
gy in the country and the Power Com-
pany has also expressed things they are
looking at.

“While we are looking at long-term
solutions to energy needs. The reality is,

“Some Bahamians do not realise that
the turtles are actually worth much more
alive than dead,” Mrs Aranha noted.

“Eco-

tourism is very popular around the
world, and if we can make our turtle pop-
ulation increase, and they feel safe in our
seas, tourists will flock here in the hopes
of seeing a turtle whilst diving, and take
home scores of photos taken in the
Bahamas to show off to their friends,”

The public needs to remember though
that the project is still in the proposal
phase, Mrs Aranha noted, urging those in
support of this ban to make their voices
heard so that the minister knows they
feel he has made a wise and sound sug-
gestion.

people who have no electricity in their
homes today cannot cook a meal
because they have no electricity, cannot
walk in their homes at night without a
candle or kerosine lamp, and relief
needs to be brought to them,” said Mr
Laing.

Mr Ferrell said GBPC is pleased to be
working with the government of the
Bahamas to provide a level of econom-
ic relief to its residential consumers.

The CEO noted that September’s
fuel surcharge was noticeably higher
than in previous months. He anticipates
a reduction within the next few months.

“We’re reminding customers to pay
keen attention to the energy conserva-

tion tips we continue to provide to !

reduce monthly usage,” he said.

Mr Ferrell said they will continue to
offer payment plans to customers with
an acceptable payment history who are
experiencing difficulties.

He commended those customers who
continue to make payments in a timely
fashion.

“We remain committed to providing
a service of excellence and regard the
well being and safety of our customers
and employees as a priority.

“We wish to thank the government
for a continued great working relation-
ship and look forward to doing what is
best for the residents of Grand Bahama
and by extension the people of the
Bahamas,” said Mr Ferrell.

: THE Bahamas Humane Society said it applauds Minister of Agriculture and Fisheries Larry Cartwright for issuing a proposal
: to ban Bahamian sea turtles from commecial harvesting untill April1, 2009.

Cartwright issues proposal to protect sea turtles

She said: “We are also, so very happy
that the Bahamas National Trust recent-
ly came onboard with us and asked for a
total ban. :

“Nothing will make me happier than to
know that our turtles will finally be safe
from torture, derision, and days of misery
before a painful death, I am so happy
Minister Cartwright has made this pro-
posal.

“Once this is passed we can safely say
to ourselves that our grandchildren will
be lucky enough to know what a free sea
turtle is.”

The Bahamas Humane Society is a
member of the Bahamas Sea Turtle Con-
servation Group which, Mrs Aranha said,
has been working hard “day in and day
out” to promote public awareness of the
plight of Bahamian sea turtles.

"I vex, yex when I see pictures of the
poor starving children in Haiti. Their
country Haiti had freedom and inde-
pendence from France for 208 years,
longer than everyone else except the
States, and all they have is the biggest
nine million people and children popu-
lation in the Caribbean. When other
countries give them help they should
also give them birth control to stop them
making so many children that they can't
feed and clothe. Everybody just giving
other things when Haiti in trouble beg-
gin’ for help. Give them birth control
too, so they can at least manage to help
themselves in the future.”

"I vex because our government is
proposing to rebuild the straw market
on the old site. My opinion is, the straw
market can be rebuilt on the South-
ern Recreation ground. That location
would be an extension to Bay Street
shopping and visitors walking would be
able to see places like Gregory Arch,
Government House, St Agnes'
Church, Christ Church Cathedral and
other buildings.

“We would also have more space
for parking, especially since govern-
ment owns the old City Market prop- _
erty across the street.”

"I vex because when it rains it seems
like everything shuts down. People dri
ve so slow on the road, inching along
like they don't have anywhere to go.
And it seems like on a rainy day,
Bahamians don't know how to pick |
up the phone. Just because it rains that
means you don't have to go to work.”

~ RAINED OUT, SHIRLEY STREET

"I vex about all the Haitians jumping
over my wall every day. Late in the
night, early in the morning, they jump
over my wall just to get on the other
side where they live instead of walking
the long way. Last night I was on my
computer, I see a big grown man with
grocery bags jumping over a wall
mussie six feet high. Before ] move
there, the landlord built barbed wire
around the wall, but the piece in front
of my house came down. So now I
have to deal with people coming in
my yard all the time - for three years
it's been the same thing. I can't even
say lemme open my curtains in the
morning because I ain' know who
could be traipsing in my yard.”

-ANGRY WOMAN, SEARS ROAD

"I'm just upset about all the young
men in my neighbourhood hooked on
drugs. Meth, coke, prescription drugs -
they on everything. It's like the major-
ity of the guys round here don't work
and all day, all night, it's like Jamaica
light up in my neighbourhood.

“All they do is smoke, and I wonder
if that's the answer to unemployment,

of not having a job.”

attorney’s woes
‘never missing’

FROM page one

acting for his client as a trustee
and not as an attorney and was
. accused of “failure to properly
account” for funds, rather than
having misappropriated them,
it was not appropriate that he
should have been penalised by
being disbarred.

Furthermore, Mr Evans
claimed that documents have
allegedly been discovered in
Jersey which “clearly indicate”
that the money was never miss-
ing to begin with.

“The findings (by the Disci-
plinary Tribunal in 2001) were
that he failed to keep a clear
accounting of the trust
fund...that he failed to account
for the $492,000,” said Mr
Evans to Bar Council chair-
woman Ruth Bowe-Darville.

“The fact that (he) did not.

keep proper records is not evi-
dence of a lack of integrity,” he
said.

“There is no evidence of mis-
appropriation. He was ineffi-
cient in record-keeping.”

But Ms Bowe-Darville’s pri-

mary concern was whether or
not the original complainant
had been informed that new
documents allegedly account-
ing for the money have now
been found.

“TI need to know if he is satis-
fied if this is a correct account-
ing of his money,” said the

chairwoman, flanked by five '

other council members. _
“Who is to verify these are
true accounts? We cannot veri-
fy these accounts,” she said.
Ms Bowe-Darville said the
proceedings could not move
ahead without input from the
complainant as to whether he
agreed that the other docu-
ments provide evidence the
money was not, in fact, missing.
But Mr Evans said the
“source documents will speak
for themselves,” alleging fur-
thermore that “the instructions
I’ve got from (Mr Smith) is that

he has not been able to find (Mr

Klonaris) in recent times.”

However, Ms Bowe-Darville
was not convinced and
adjourned the matter until an
attempt to locate Mr Klonaris
had been made.

Despite the proximity os
Princess Margaret Hospital to
the scene of the crime, about
one quarter mile, he estimated
the ambulance to have taken

He also said the two women

When The Tribune arrived
on the scene, a small trail of
blood remained which ran from

a larger pool next to the side-
walk.

A pair of brown shoes stood
where witnesses said the father
would have collapsed. Music
was still playing inside the
Expedition.

Mr Evans said the son was
arrested on the scene and found
to have a knife measuring six
to eight inches.

He described the incident as
“bizarre” and-said he couldn’t

such a degree.

Caribbean policing

no easy assignment

By MIKE MELIA
Associated Press Writer

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico
(AP) — A lawsuit filed by
Antigua’s ousted police com-
missioner shows it’s not always
a tropical idyll when a veteran
officer from Britain or Canada
chooses to spend the twilight of
his career working in the
Caribbean.

A retired member of the
Royal Canadian Mounted
Police, Gary Nelson is suing the
Caribbean government that
recruited him, accusing Antigua
and Barbuda of political inter-
ference amid a high-profile dou-
ble murder case.

Caribbean, other officers enlist-
ed to help fight a wave of vio-
lence describe being confronted
with high-profile cases, a lack
of resources and island politics.

“It sounds wonderful and
interesting to be in the
Caribbean and be commission-
er, but I never would have
accepted this position if I had
known what the government is
like,” Nelson said in a phone
interview.

Nelson told The Associated
Press the government refused
to give him authority he needed
to modernize the police force.
He was dismissed after two
British honeymooners were
shot dead — a crime that

Across the English-speaking — threatened the tourist industry.

Ex-Tribune worker
tried to ‘hold on’ for



wedding anniversary

FROM page one

Chea, a father of six, was released from a three-week hospital stay
last week and expected to celebrate the 50th year of his marriage
with wife Hazel. His daughter Tracey believes he was trying to
“hold on” longer for that reason.

Family said he was a man with a sense of humour who placed
high value on religion.

**He was loyal to us as a family man. He did whatever it took to
ensure that we got the best. He always wanted to make sure that our
spiritual life was in order. I grew‘up with my father going to church
every morning rain or shine. If he found out one of us as adults did-
n’t attend church he wanted to find out why,” said Tracey.

Noting that dealing with a family member who is suffering from
a degenerative disease can take a toll on loved ones, Tracey advised
others going through the same ordeal to be patient and take the dis-
ease day by day.

“When (you're dealing with) a loved one with Alzheimer’s or
Parkinson’s, what you haye to do is love them for that day. Some-
times they don’t know what day they were in or what decade
because an Alzheimer’s person could think they are still in the 40s
or 50s.

“Sometimes it can be embarrassing because other people don’t
know they are (suffering) from Alzheimers, especially during the
early stages of the disease. So I would encourage any person who
finds out their family is going through Alzheimers to love them
through whatever day or whatever year that they’re in.”

Chea, a former student of Eastern Senior School, was an avid fan
of local baseball, loved fishing and sang tenor in the St Anselm's
Church choir. He started his long career as a printer with The
Tribune before leaving to work for Executive Printers.

He was born on January 25, 1933, and is survived by wife Hazel,
daughters Althea Scantlebury, Crystal Barnett, Tracey Chea, Gina
Roberts, sons Clement Chea and Michael Chea, 13 grandchildren
and brother Raymond Chea.

Funeral services are scheduled for next Saturday at 4pm at St
Anselm’s Church. Friends and family can view his body at Kemp’s
Funeral Home.

Antigua Prime Minister Bald-
win Spencer said last month
that Nelson was fired because of
“unsatisfactory” performance
but did not provide details.
Government spokesman Mau-
rice Merchant declined to com-
ment further.

Nelson said Antigua and Bar-
buda hired him to only give the
impression the twin-island goy-
ernment was tackling its soaring
crime rate.

In St. Lucia, Police Commis-
sioner John Broughton — a
Briton — had to go to court
Thursday to face a police super-
intendent who — alleges
Broughton intimidated him.

Shortly after Broughton’s
appointment in 2006, vandals
broke into his office, poured
water over his computer and
left a note with a crude drawing
of a gun saying “Broughton will



never be Commissioner.”

The local police union is
demanding his resignation over
complaints about his leadership.

In Jamaica, former Scotland
Yard detective Mark Shields
was brought in to curtail a sky-
high homicide rate in 2005 and
is struggling to gain support for
initiatives such as standardized
police reports. With homicides
continuing virtually unabated,
Shields told AP he cannot waste
time on political feuds.

Early in his tenure, Shields

was the lead investigator into
the suspected murder of the
coach of Pakistan’s cricket team
during the 2007 World Cup. As
the investigation stumbled,
politicians accused police of
incompetence and even one of
Shields’ officers criticized him
before authorities determined
the coach died of natural causes.

The minister sapiained that
many Americans will now be
put in a position where they can
afford leisure trips to such des-
tinations as the Bahamas. “This
could have a positive impact on
our economy,” he added.

However, the minister
warned that it is too early to
predict how the local economy
would be affected by the bail-
out,

“We have to all still be obser-
vant to see exactly whether or
not this does, in fact, translate
into that kind of positive eco-
nomic spin for the country.

“There continues to be uncer- .

tainty going forward and we
have to operate in the context
of that uncertainty,” said the
minister. ;

The $700 billion bail-out is
intended to buy defaulted mort-
gages, and in essence increase
the credit flow in the US mar-
ket. Analysts predict that, once
funds from the bail-out begin
to filter into the credit market
and other sectors, American
companies and corporations will

then be placed in a position to

not only become stabilised, but
also expand.

With this récent reassurance
in the sustainability of a sound
economic environment in the
US, Bahamians will have to
wait and see how the local econ-
omy will be affected.

Ministry of Education launches

Local Girl Guides
on target to build
state-of-the-art
heatquarters

THE Bahamas Girl Guides
Association recently accepted:

two donations totalling
$60,000 from the Shop Com-

mittee,andthe Luncheon}

Committee of the organisa-
tion.

The funds are earmarked
for the building of a $ 1.5 mil-
lion multi-purpose headquar-
ters for the Association,
which will be located just
southwest of its present office
on West Bay Street and Mar-
cus Bethel Way.

President of the Bahamas
Girl Guides Association Dr
Gail Saunders thanked the

committees for their generous

donations and Clarice
Granger for her tireless effort
and committment to the
building project.

Dr Saunders said that the
building will replace the use
of the current structure which
they have utilised since 1946.
The historical building was
used during the war to house
soldiers who violated the
tules of their service.

The building still has its
original cells and limestone
walls that show the history of
the structure.

Dr Saunders said that
Alvan Rolle, of Alvan K and

Associates, is the architect for

the project and has donated
his services to the Associa-
tion.

On completion, the build-
ing will accommodate offices,
the shop, a conference centre

and sleeping accommodations :

for visiting guests from the
Family Islands and abroad.

Anita Bernard, chairperson

of the groups’ Building Com-

mittee, said that the funds sig-
nify the launch of the building |
programme, and that they will :

be targeting every sector and
former Girl Guides to assist
them in their mission.
The groundbreaking cere-
mony took place yesterday.
The Girl Guide organisa-
tion caters to girls from the

age of five to 16, assisting with

the building of character,
teaching them to enjoy the
outdoors and give service to,
others and country, providing
them with leadership skills
and problem solving tech-
niques.

Elma Garraway, member
of the training team, said that
the organisation trains the
girls to become good women,
and ultimately good citizens.

It is estimated that over
30,000 girls have passed
through the local Girl Guides
Association.

EDUCATION Minister Carl
Bethel is appealing to parents to
turn off the televisions and
make time each day to read to
and with their child or children.

Mr Bethel made this appeal
on Thursday as he officially
launched the national reading
programme “Read to Lead” at
the Holy Trinity Activity Cen-
tre, Stapledon Gardens.

The “Read to Lead” initia-
tive is a joint partnership
between the Ministry of Edu-
cation and the US Embassy in
Nassau. It is modeled after a

reading project at Woodcook °

Primary School that was started
in 2005 by former US Ambas-
sador John Rood and volun-
teers from the Embassy.

The programme presently
includes schools throughout
New Providence, Grand
Bahama, Abaco, Cat Island and
Eleuthera, and is expected to
expand to the remaining Fami-
ly Island districts in January of
2009.

Led by Education deputy
director Patricia Collins, the
organising committee for “Read
to Lead” has recruited over 600
volunteers to read to fourth,
fifth and sixth grade public
school students.

Representing a wide cross
section of the community, the
volunteers include persons from
churches, banks, the Royal
Bahamas Police Force, the Roy-
al Bahamas Defence Force, the
Scout Association, the Zonta
Club as well as Governors Gen-
eral, Archbishops and retired
persons.

Minister Bethel encouraged
more Bahamians in service
clubs and other business and
professional organisations to
adopt schools and become com-
munity readers.

He said, “It is only through
literacy and being able to read
that you can put yourselves on
the path for a successful, pro-
ductive and meaningful life. By
reading you will be on the road
to empowerment and you will
have a better chance of emerg-

ing as vibrant and productive
citizens rather than to resort to
crime or other negative activi-
ties.

“By reading you will get a sol-
id education that will help you
to know how to make the cor-
rect choices. We want to bring
reading back in style. We want
to make you excited about read-
ing because there is so much
you can learn by opening a
book,” said Minister Bethel.

He thanked the volunteers,
the US Embassy, the Volunteer
USA Organisation and the
organisers of “Read to-Lead”
for partnering with the Ministry
of Education in this venture.

Mr Bethel also extended
appreciation to Graycliff presi-
dent Paolo Garzaroli for his
donation of over 1,000 copies
of selected books.

In brief remarks Timothy
Zuniga-Brown, Charge
Affaires of US Embassy said,
“When. you are ready to read,
you are ready to succeed, and
when you are ready to succeed,
you are ready to lead.

“Get ready to read to lead.
Get ready to make your par-
ents and your teachers proud.
Get ready to show what every
child in the Bahamas is capa-
ble of doing and what they are
able to accomplish through
reading,” he said.

Mr Zuniga-Brown encour-
aged the students to get excited,

ing.

“Each of us has choices to
make in life. The more good
choices we make the more good
opportunities are presented to
us. One good choice we can
always make each and every
day, particularly at your age is
to read a book because reading
is the key to success and when
you are ready to read you will
all become leaders,” he said.

An estimated 1,000 students
representing New Providence
public primary schools, along
with Ministry of Education
teachers and officials, parents,
volunteers and the Royal
Bahamas Police Force Pop
Band were present at the offi-
cial launch of the reading pro-
ject.

Electricity surcharge
changes a relief for |

many GB residents

@ By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter
dmaycock @tribunemedia.net

FREEPORT - Grand Bahama residents
are relieved that the government is taking
steps to assist electricity consumers who in’
arrears as a result of high electricity and
fuel surcharge rates.

State Minister for Finance Zhivargo Laing
is in Grand.Bahama today meeting with
Grand Bahama Power Company officials
to find ways to bring relief to consumers
here.

Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham
announced in parliament last week that the

He pledged that the government would

WITH the aim of making
every member of the Bain and
Grants Town community com-
puter literate by the year 2013,
the Mount Olive Baptist Church
this week officially opened a new
computer laboratory in the area.

The brainchild of Rev Dr CB
Moss, “Project Y13” is designed
to make technology accessible
to the entire community and to
allow persons to acquire at least
basic computer skills.

Residents of Bain and Grants
Town came out on Thursday
afternoon despite the rainy
weather just to get a glimpse of
what Project Y13 has to offer.

Rev Moss said that technology
provides powerful learning tools
that demand new skills and
understanding by anyone who
wants to function in this rapidly
changing world.

“We in the Bahamas, since we
too are a developing country, can
do no less than is being done in
developed countries and we can-
not afford to be left behind. So

Mount Olive Baptist opens new computer tab

2004 and 2005.

Despite the economic woes, the power
company has increased its rates citing the
high cost of fuel as the reason.

“T applaud the government for stepping
in and assisting Bahamians who are strug-
gling at this time,” said a school teacher.

“T am living with my mother and our
monthly light bill alone at one point was
$500 — that is too high especially when you
have other monthly obligations,” the
teacher said.

Cab driver David Jones believes govern-
ment should monitor and scrutinise the
rates charged by GB Power Company.

“I feel that the rates are a bit high and
government needs to put some restraints
on the Power Company. They should not
allow private companies to hike rates when-
ever they want to,” he said.

Mr Jones said while it is good that the
government is assisting consumers, resi-
dents must also try to conserve energy.

“We welcome the assistance, but in the
meantime we got to educate our people
about conserving energy because this is



worldwide problem,” he said.

Mr Jones stressed that government must
educate residents about the importance of
energy conservation. He noted that there
are things residents can do to save power,
including adjusting the settings on their
appliances at home.

Another cab driver, who identified him-
self as “Winky” commended the govern-
ment for coming to the aid of struggling.
consumers like himself.

He said that the power bill at his one
room house has jumped from $102 to $500
in the last month. ;

“The power rates are outrageous,” he
said. “I think they are charging us double

_ for the fuel surcharge. I think it is timely the

government is stepping in to help Bahami-
ans,” he said.

Minister Laing said government is also
concerned about the businesses on Grand
Bahama, especially those at Port Lucaya.

He said government is talking with Grand
Bahama Port Authority to try and get some
relief for the merchants who operate in that
area.

WHEN Ting Ting Wang
began taking English as a child
in elementary school, she nev-
er imagined her new language
would take her from a small
province in Beijing to teach-
ing Business Studies at West-
minster College in New Provi-
: dence. Yet, today she and the

“other members of staff are
sharing their love of teaching
and appreciation of cultural
diversity as the school cele-
brates World Teachers Day,
: an event celebrated in more
: than 100 countries around the

world on October 5.

The academic institution
located on Blake Road boasts
several trained teachers who
help bridge cultural bridges
from kindergarten all the way
up to grade 12.

Some of the educators hail
from countries as far away as
China, Japan and the Philip-
pines, while others have come
from the United States, Cana-
da, Cuba, Jamaica, St Lucia
and the Republic of Guyana.

: The remaining teachers pride
: themselves in being from sev-
: eral Bahamian islands. They
: chose to celebrate World
: Teachers Day on Friday
: instead of Sunday.

: “We are truly honoured to
: have teachers from several
: countries making up our fac-
ulty,” said Dr Daphne Cooper.

“Today, we celebrate our
melting pot of cultures because
it diversifies our student body.
We celebrate our teachers and
we appreciate them and all
that they are doing in trans-
forming today’s children into
tomorrow’s leaders.

“At many schools, places as



far away as China and as close
as Cuba are simply locations
on maps - but at Westminster
College our students get to see
people from those places, hear
their accents, taste their foods,
learn their way of life and lis-
ten to their experiences that
differ from the typical Bahami-
an life,” Dr Cooper said.

Many of the teachers at
Westminster agree that their
presence makes a difference in
the lives of the young students,
especially those who seek to
travel abroad to expand their
horizons, to further educate
themselves or even make
themselves more marketable
in their careers.

“Through their teachers,
these students get to see peo-
ple that is possible for Bahami-
ans to make their mark on the

‘world stage,” said Dr Cooper.

“They see that there will be
success in’ their lives if they
strive to master an apprecia-
tion of language,.culture and
a sound education in order to
go out there into the world and
compete with international
counterparts.” :

World Teachers’ Day was
inaugurated in 1994 to com-
memorate the signing of the
UNESCO/ILO recommenda-
tion concerning the Status of
Teachers on 5 October 1966.
Today, More than 100 coun-
tries celebrate World Teach- .
ers’ Day on October 5, a day
set aside by the world commu-
nity to celebrate teachers and
the central role they play in
nurturing and guiding infants,
children, youth and adults
through the life-long learning
process.

we wanted to provide some
incentive to the learning of com-
puter skills to the residents of
this community and that is why
we opened this lab,” he said.

Rev Moss said it is his view
that people his community, and
throughout the Bahamas, are
desperately in need of something
to motivate them, point them in
a direction and encourage them
to go for it.

Computer instructor for the
project, Cyrus Gardiner, said that
organisers are trying to get all of
the residents of the Bain and
Grants Town area more involved
in the computer and information
age, not only for themselves but

for the sake of their children.
“We are aware that children
are more knowledgeable of com-
puters and are not afraid to learn.
The parents are more prone to
say ‘don’t touch that’ or ‘I don’t
want to touch that’. We are try-
ing to help them bridge that gap
and it’s a better way to help them
to communicate with their chil-

.dren and it keeps the children

off the street,” Mr Gardiner said.

Member of Parliament for
Bain and Grants Town Dr
Bernard Nottage said that com-
puters are important, not only
for basic information and edu-
cation, but for employment.

He said the objective to

is a great one.

“T think it is extremely impor-
tant and | think it’s an idea that I
can certainly buy into. It’s a won-
derful idea, and whether we
achieve it or not is not as impor-
tant as introducing the concept
and encouraging people to par-
ticipate,” Dr Nottage said.

President of the Bahamas
Christian Council Rev Patrick
Paul also congratulated Rev
Moss on his efforts to help the
people of his area to become
computer literate.

“The Bahamas Christian

Rev Paul said the Bahamas

more churches in the Bahamas to

“To meet many of the chal-

Hi

Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is to fs
fill all of the empty squares, using numbers 1 to 9, so the sum of
each horizontal block equals the number to its left, and the sum

of each vertical block equals the number on its top. No number #
may be used in the same block more than once. The difficulty ,;
level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases from Monday to Sunday. }.

Course for
volleyball
referees

fH By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

THE Bahamas Volleyball
Federation (BVF), under the
Olympic Solidarity Movement,
has announced a week-long
course for referees at the Kendal
Isaacs Gymnasium and the Hen-
ry Crawford Fitness Center.

The clinic, scheduled for Octo-
ber 8-14, will be held in con-
junction with Bahamas Olympic
Association, the Ministry of
Youth, Sports and Culture and
the International Volleyball Fed-
eration.

“A few months ago, we were
successful in getting two of our
seasoned referees certified as
international officials and now
they are qualified to officiate at
any level from the Olympics
downwards,” said Don Cornish,
president of the BVF.

“What we’re trying to do, in
keeping with our programme, is
to ensure that those persons in
those lower tiers, can begin the
process, which is a three-year
course.”

Tom Blue, according to Cor-
nish, will conduct the clinic for
officials and coaches. Blue, who
serves on the council for the
International Volleyball Feder-
ation, will be in town on October
6.

Blue will conduct the course
with the assistance of two of the
Bahamas’ newest international
certified referees, Linslow Miller
and Kirk Farquharson.

With the Ministry of Educa-
tion and the Principals Associa-
tion noting that beginning in the
2009/10 school year all coaches
will have to be certified to coach
their teams, Cornish said this
will be a golden opportunity for
the high school coaches to par-
ticipate. ~* .

“There is an introductory cost,
but it is a certification course for
their programme,” he said. “I
noticed that the Ministry of Edu-
cation is requiring that. So those
individuals who wish to offici-
ate and who wish to get more
knowledge on how to manage a
match and to officiate at higher
levels, not just at the schools,
but higher developmental lev-
els, they can have a chance to
learn the basic skills.”

Cornish said it doesn’t make
sense having strong competition
when the officiating is not up to
par. This, he said, is a step in
that direction as they ensure that
both levels excel at the same
time.

He also noted that New Prov-
idence Volleyball Association

‘president DeVince Smith has
obtained his level IJ coaching
certification from a course he
recently attended in Santo
Domingo and he’s working with
the national and junior develop-
ment programmes.

“We’re hoping to continue
that level for the other officials,
who have gotten their level one,
a chance to take their certifica-
tion further,” Cornish said.

“So we are looking at incor-
porating more of these courses
as we look forward to taking our
sport to a much higher level.”





LaFleur gets three-
year suspension

s a result of

her unsports-

manlike con-

duct at the

36th Central
American and Caribbean
Bodybuilding and Fitness Fed-
eration Championships, light-
weight Lorraine LaFleur was
served with a three-year sus-
pension.

The decision, which included
a one-year suspension for fit-
ness competitor Shera Mackey
and a warning to male body-
builder Jay Darling, came at
an emergency meeting by the
Bahamas Bodybuilding and
Fitness Federation on Thurs-
day night.

Danny Sumner, president of
the federation, made the stun-
ning triple announcement dur-
ing a press conference at Mys-
tical Gym yesterday. He was
accompanied by vice president
Dereck Bullard and public
relations officer Chevy Roker.

Referring to the LaFleur
drama, Sumner said the “ugly
scene” was witnessed in the
front of Javier Pollack, vice
president of International Fed-
eration of Bodybuilders, Min-
ister of Sports Desmond Ban-
nister, the CACBBFF presi-
dent Giovanni Arendez and
Christine Williams, IFBB exec-
utive assistant. ;

“What transpired was an
ugly scene and we consider it
an ugly scene,” he charged.
“During the presentation of
the medals, Javier Pollack
extended his hand to Lorraine
LaFleur to put up along with

LORRAINE LaFleur
in competition...



the other females in announc-
ing first, second and third.
“Prior to that, it was
announced that Lorraine had
come fifth. Her name was
called out first as fifth in her
category. What she did was she
jerked her hand away from Mr
Pollack, she muttered some
things while on stage, then she
proceeded to walk towards the
judges table where she used
her two index fingers making
some not too positive jesters
and stormed off the stage.”
Sumner, who also serves as
president of the Antilles Body-

building Federation, said he
apologised to the dignitaries
for LaFleur’s behaviour. He
said LaFleur broke a number
of laws in the federation’s con-
stitution by acting the way she
did and her attitude will not
be condoned by the federation.

In addition to her suspen-
sion, Sumner said LaFleur
must also submit a letter of
apology to Pollack, Arenedez
and Bannister. On Monday, he
said LaFleur submitted a letter
of apology to him, on the fed-
eration’s behalf, expressing
regret and remorse for her

e Shera Mackey suspended for a year
e Warning issued to Jay Darling

actions.

“Her suspension is a clear
indication that this federation
will not tolerate or condone
any such action by any mem-
ber, no matter how talented
you are,” said Sumner.

“Last year, we won a gold
medal in Aruba and looking
at her talent, we thought that
we could take her forward. But
we will not take anybody for-
ward with that characteristic
and attitude. We will discipline

‘anybody who violates the
rules.”

Therefore, Sumner said they
also suspended Mackey for
one year after she failed to
appear on stage to compete in
the final of the fitness compe-
tition, which is mandatory
unless there is a legitimate
excuse and one wasn’t given.

“Her name was submitted,
her name was called by the
chief marshall and she was a
no show,” Sumner said.

“She came to the show late,
two of my executives told her
to go in the back so that she
can have the opportunity to go
on stage...She never did.
Instead she went inside and sat
down. That is unbecoming. We
can’t have this type of thing
happening. That is why we
have to suspend her for one
year. If we didn’t do it, the
IFBB would have done it.”

In Darling’s case, Sumner
said Darling received a warn-
ing letter after making remarks
in the media because he didn’t
receive financial assistance

BOA officers fitting in with their roles





@ By BRENT STUBBS

IF you’re wondering if the newly elect-
ed officers of the Bahamas Olympic
Association find themselves in a conflict

of interest by serving as presidents of

their respective federations, think again.
During a press conference yesterday
at the DHL head office; four of the exec-
utives put the issue in perspective as they
continue to work towards the integra-
tion of their particular roles in office.
Wellington Miller, BOA president, also
president of the Amateur Boxing Feder-
ation, said the team for the Common-
wealth Youth Games was able to be

assembled in such a short-time because
“we are all here.”

“Our vice president Mike Sands was
able to go directly to speak to his people,
I was able to go directly to speak to my
people, swimming was able to go direct-
ly, and we were able to get information,”
Miller said.

“Nobody was left out. It was discussed
openly and everybody left happy. So I
think it’s going to work fast and quick
for us.”

Said Bahamas Volleyball Federation
president Don Cornish: “The manage-
ment of those sports and the develop-
ment of a higher level could be better
managed if you do have that direct con-
tact,” he said.

“In terms of selecting teams, obvious-
ly there will be perceptions, but I think
because of the fact that this is a trans-
parent process, I don’t think it’s possible
for anybody to say or refute the fact that
we didn’t go out.”

‘Tennis and wrestling, two of the sports

_ affiliated with the BOA, doesn’t sit

around the executive table, but Cornish
said they have been given an opportuni-
ty to do so.

As mandated by the International
Olympic Charter, secretary general
Romell Knowles said the make up of the
executive board is expected to come from
the member associations.

Commonwealth Youth Games: 1 5-member team ratified

@ By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
Dstubbs@tribunemedia.net

ALTHOUGH they have had
a short period to work in since
taking office, the newly elected
Bahamas Olympic Association
(BOA) ratified a 15-member
team that will travel to the
Commonwealth Youth Games.

The games are slated for
October 12-18 in Pune, locat-
ed in the western Indian state
of Maharashtra, about 200 kilo-
meters south-east of the state
capital Mumbai.

Headed by Chef-de-Mission
Don Comish, the team is made
up of competitors in swimming,
boxing, athletics and tennis.
Other disciplines were consid-
ered, but the BOA said they
were not prepared for the short
notice.

Yesterday, during a press
conference at DHL, the BOA
released the names of the team
that will leave on Tuesday. Cor-
nish, however, is scheduled to

travel Sunday.

BOA president Wellington
Miller said since coming on
board in July, they were quite

busy with trying to get Jackie’

Edwards reinserted on the team
for the XXIX Olympic Games.

He noted that once Cornish
was appointed as the Chef-de-
Mission, he was able to start
working right away with get-
ting the team ready for the
Commonwealth Youth Games.

¢ Swimming, coached by Iva
Russell, will comprise of McK-
ayla Lightbourne, Jenna Chap-
lin and John Bradley.

° Boxing, coached by Arthur
Missick, features Kellen Mis-
sick and Ronald Woodside Jr.

e Athletics, coached by
Stephanie Rahming, will show-
case Rashad Brown (400) and
Deshona Burnside and Ken-
neth Wallace-Whitfield (both
in the 800).

e Tennis, coached by Gior-
gio Baldacci, will be made up of
Johnathan Taylor and Kevin
Major.

BOA’s vice president, Mike
Sands, who also serves as the
president of the Bahamas Asso-
ciation of Athletic Associations,
said the Commonwealth Youth
Games is a prelude to the Com-
monwealth Games to be staged
in India next year.

Compete

He said: “Anytime there is
an opportunity that we can pro-
vide for young athletes to com-
pete, we have to take advan-
tage of it because that’s what
we’re in the business for. We
always say athletes first.”

Sands said that as a result of

the short notice, they were able
to consult directly with the asso-
ciations once the recommenda-
tions of the athletes were sub-
mitted and it worked out per-
fectly because of their direct
involvement in both the BOA
and their associations.
Cornish, who serves as a vice
president of the BOA and pres-
ident of the Bahamas Volley-

ball Federation, said when they
took office, one of their major
commitments was develop-
ment.

“We spend a lot of time
among ourselves on how we are
going to do this. But we were
able toscome together and
come up with a good conclu-
sion,” he stressed.

“This is a limited event in
terms of the general participa-
tion of federations in the
Bahamas. When you think
about badminton, we don’t play
that, for example. ‘Table tennis
is one of the sports on the list
and we're not going to partici-
pate in that because that is not
an Olympic-type sport.”

Cornish said they decided to
go with the four sports men-
tioned because they felt those
are going to be the best that
the Bahamas can be represent-
ed in at the games, based on
the fact that their athletes
would be in better positions to
compete.

“The only one that was on

the bubble, but came in late
was wrestling because they did-
n't have athletes who were
competition ready,” he said.

“But they shared with us that
they will bé ready for the next
competition.”

Secretary General Romell
Knowles, who is also the
Bahamas Softball Federation
president, said this is an oppor-
tunity for those disciplines that
have not been included in the
{rip to get ready for the next
games, “LT see this really for
those persons who play table
tennis and wrestling and the
rest of those sports that was
mentioned before and is not
traveling, to organise them-
selves in some type of body, so
that when the team travels
again, we can identify them.”

Knowles said they will be
putting together a database of
Olympic and non-Olympic
sports so that they will be in a
better position to have athletes
ready to compete as soon as
games like this one come up.

Jay Darling

from the federation.

But Sumner said the federa-
tion is operating an amateur
sport and is not in a position to
“pay athletes,” only to help
with a small stipend which they
have been doing for the past
three years.

“The only bodybuilders who
could demand money are Joel
Stubbs, Gena Mackey and
Natasha Brown because they
are professionals,” Sumner
charged.

“But there is no other body-
builder who could demand
funding. It’s not in the consti-
tution of the IBFF. Any ath-
lete receiving money and is an
amateur is in violation of that
rule and could be suspended.”

For the championships,
Sumner said} the federation
spent at least $300 on each of
the 22:athletes on the team,
providing them with their uni-
forms and supplements to-help
them with their training.

“So there’s no need for the
athletes to go crying to the
media for funding,” he said.
“We cannot pay any athlete to
compete as an amateur.”

Both Bullard and Roker
indicated that they fully sup-
ported the decisions.

Broncos kicker
filling in nicely
for Elam

® By PAT GRAHAM
AP Sports Writer

ENGLEWOOD, Colorado
(AP) — The Denver Broncos
aren’t missing Jason Elam, thanks
to Matt Prater.

Prater has been steady this sea-
son — very Elam-esque — hitting
nine of 10 field goals, including
three from beyond 50 yards. He
also leads the league in scoring
with 41 points.

This from an unproven kicker
who had only one field goal on
his resume before this season.
This from a 24-year-old trying to
replace one of the best in league
history and the Broncos’ all-time
leading scorer.

Yet Prater never felt the pres-
sure of taking the place of Elam,
who kicked four game-winners
last year.

“I know a lot of people were

" uncertain after having Jason here
for so long,” said Prater; who fre-
quently sends text messages to
Elam seeking advice. “They were
spoiled, having a guaranteed kick-
er like that. I had to go out and
show I could do it.”

The Broncos were willing to
allow Elam to escape to Atlanta
in the offseason because of the
promise they saw in Prater. He
had a booming leg but needed to
work on his accuracy, much like a
young Elam when he entered the
NFL.

So far, that hasn't been a prob-
lem.

“T feel like I’ve been pretty con-
sistent,” said Prater, who’s tied
for the AFC lead with seven
touchbacks on kickoffs. “I’m try-
ing to do the same routine. I even
try to breathe the same before
each kick.”

Now if he can only get the
opposing fans from riding him.

‘He hit 56- and 51-yard field
goals.in a 33-19 loss at Kansas
City last Sunday, yet a fan parked
right next to his kicking net
wouldn’t let him forget the 28-
yard attempt he pulled right.

“He said: ‘Jason wouldn’t have
missed it,’” Prater recounted with
a grin. “I’m going to hear that for
the rest of the year.”

Perhaps even the rest of his
career in Denver.

But that’s life in trying to
replace a kicker of Elam’s ilk.

“He set the standard here for
kickers. You’ve got to appreciate
what Jason’s done,” special teams
coordinator Scott O’Brien said.
“Matt just has to be Matt.”

BOA, from 11

“This process for us began
some two years ago and I can
tell you that I’ve served as pres-
ident of the BSF for nine years
and two years ago I can say that
we have developed a common
bond and we sit around like
blood brothers,” he said.

“Do we have the politics of
sports? I believe so. We have
very heated discussions, but at
the end of the day, the passion
and the wanting to do the right
thing always, always succeed.
We have a number of federa-
tion executives from the vari-
ous disciplines and there is no
curry favouritism.”

Knowles said they try to do
right because their own man-
date going into office was to be
a very “active and athlete-
friendly executives and we
intend to do that or we will fail.”

For those that are concerned,
Knowles said they should have
no worry because they are all
committed to doing whatever
is necessary to make the associ-.
ation work.

Mike Sands, another BOA
vice president, said while the
constitution of the BOA doesn’t
state specifically who should be
elected to office, it does state
that the majority should come
from the federations and asso-
ciations.

As the BAAA president,
Sands said they have made it a
point to put the athletes first in
whatever they do and a clear
example of this was the incident
with Jackie Edwards when they
lobbied to get her back on the
Olympic team and they request-
ed that the athletes line up in
front of the executives during
the march pass at the games in
Beijing, China in August.

“There are no agendas, other
than athletes first,” Sands said.
“The games are about the ath-
letes. Everything we do will be
in the best interest of the. ath-
Jetes.

“We might not be right all
the time, but the decisions we
make are in the best interest of
the athletes. Without the ath-
letes, there won’t be any feder-
ations and if there are no fed-
erations, there won’t be any
BOA.”

Packers try to fix
running problems

GREEN BAY, Wisconsin
(AP) — The Green Bay
Packers’ rushing numbers are
up from the same point in the
season last year.

That’s not saying much,
however.

Through four games, the
Packers have struggled run-
ning the football and even
holding onto it, so greater
attention is being made in

practice this week to try to

rectify the situation.
“We do more before and

after practice now because .

that’s what you have to
emphasize,” running backs
coach Edgar Bennett said
Thursday. “So, we’ll contin-
ue to emphasize that and cor-
réct the problem.”

The issue of ball security
has been a focal point in the
extra drills on the practice
field.

Running back Ryan Grant
has fumbled the football away
in Green Bay’s last two
games. Both turnovers were
caused by direct hits from a
defensive player on the ball.

“It’s frustrating to see it two

_ weeks in a row,” offensive

coordinator Joe Philbin said.
“We’ve got to have better pad
level on contact. We’ve got
to keep two hands on the ball
when we’re in traffic.”

Grant’s most recent fum-
ble was returned for a touch-
down by Tampa Bay’s Jer-
maine Phillips in the Bucca-
neers’ 30-21 win over the
Packers on Sunday.

Grant also fumbled on the
second play of the game the
previous week against Dallas,
which handed the Packers
their first loss.

“What it boils down to is

fundamentals,” Bennett said.

“We have to clean up our

fundamentals. I say we

cause it’s my responsibility
to make sure we’re always
functioning at a high level as
far as from a fundamental
standpoint.

“Those two plays, we were
not. And, we are cleaning that

situation up. It’s more funda-
mentals.”

The recent miscues have
magnified the struggles the
Packers have endured in run-
ning the ball this season.

They are averaging 93.5
yards per game, ranking 23rd
in the NFL. Green Bay also is
in the bottom half of the
league with an average of 3.9
yards per carry.

Veteran right tackle Mark
Tauscher didn’t pinpoint one
area as being a trouble spot.

‘We have to block up bet-
ter up front,” he said. “I think
it’s a unit thing, it’s not just

Chris 0’Meara/AP

one guy. Everybody up front
needs to play better. Every-
body involved running backs,
tight ends, offensive line has
to execute better.”

The execution has been
surprisingly off with Grant as
the lead back. Grant led the
league the final three months
of last season, including the
playoffs, with 1,159 rushing
yards.

After missing all offseason
practices this year because of
a contract dispute with the
Packers and then suffering a
hamstring injury early in the
preseason after signing a
lucrative multiyear deal,
Grant has been far from pro-
ductive.

He’s gained a total of only
186 yards in four games, aver-
aging 3.4 yards per carry.

Grant has been held to 20
yards in 15 carries twice in the
last three games.

“T know for sure some of it
is what’s been out in front of
him (with the blocking) hasn’t
been great a lot of times. It’s
hard to make yards,” Philbin
said. “There were certainly
times last year when he made
yards on his own, which every
good back does.”

Philbin noted how Green
Bay’s running game was ina
bigger quandary after four
games last year.

The Packers were mired at
the bottom of the league
rankings with averages of 54.3
yards per game and 2.7 yards
per rush. Then-rookie Bran-
don Jackson, not Grant,
opened the season as the
main back.

“To say Brandon Jackson
wasn’t running the ball well
there, that would be part of it
maybe, but certainly not the
whole story,” said Philbin,
adding of the apparent causes
for the struggles this season.

“T think it’s a little bit of
everything. I think it’s some
of our blocking. Some of it
has been execution. Our
offensive balance and our
flow hasn’t been as good.”

more picks, more tackles

m@ By TERESA M WALKER
AP Sports Writer



NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) —
The Tennessee Titans are very greedy.

They lead the NFL in turnovers
with 12 and in points allowed per
game through their 4-0 start. They
also have 15 sacks, and it’s just not
enough.

“More sacks, more interceptions,”
linebacker Keith Bulluck said. “We
need to score more, you know what I
mean? This weekend would be great.
We know we're going to have to make
a play to change the course of the

game. We need to continue to do

things like that. It gets contagious.”

The Titans talked all offseason |

about how they want to be the NFL’s
best defense in 2008. They’re not there
yet in most defensive statistics, but
they see plenty of room for improve-
ment.

“We're efficient, productive,” coach
Jeff Fisher said. “We get the ball back
right now. I don’t think we’ve played
nearly as well as we're capable of play-
ing.”

The Titans will get a chance Sunday
when they visit Baltimore (2-1) to see
how they measure up. The Ravens
lead the NFL in five different cate-
gories including yards allowed (186.7)
per game, are second to the Titans in
scoring defense (14.3 points per game)
and are on a franchise-record streak of
holding opponents to 17 points or few-
er in seven straight regular-season
games.

The two defenses are playing so
well it brings back memories of 2000
when the Ravens set an NFL record
by allowing just 165 points in a season.
The Titans ranked second in that cat-
cgory but first in yards allowed. Fish-
er watched the Ravens in Monday
night's 23-20 overtime loss at Pitts-
burgh and was impressed by what he
saw.

“Their defense is back. Their
defense is kind of reminiscent of the
old days. So it’s a very big challenge
for us,” he said.

Titans quarterback Kerry Collins
saw the Ravens’ 2000 defense up close

and personal in the Super Bowl where
he finished with a 7.1 passer rating
after being sacked four times and
intercepted four times.

“I don’t think it was fair they
allowed them to play with 15 because
it seemed like there were 15 of them
as fast as they were and as many plays
as they made,” Collins said. “It’s one
I'd like to forget, but it’s a great learn-
ing experience.”

Derrick Mason, who played with
Tennessee against that 2000 Ravens
defense, now is in Baltimore, and the
receiver said things have changed. But
he sees the same relentless attitude
in both defenses today. He also
expects the Titans to pressure Balti-
more rookie quarterback Joe Flacco a
lot, especially since Pittsburgh got five
sacks.

“It starts with the guy up the middle
in (Albert) Haynesworth and blocking
him and kind of going from there.
They have a very good defensive line,
I think one of the best in the league, so
we have to figure out a way to stop
those guys from getting to the quar-
terback,” Mason said.

Haynesworth, who had an All Pro
season in 2007, already has five sacks

to lead all defensive tackles. He was
named the AFC defensive player of
the month for September on Thursday
and is one sack off matching his career
high. He had seven tac kles in last
week's 30-17 win over Minnesota in
which the Vikings ran for only 80
yards.

But the Titans, who are giving »p
263.5 yards offense and 86.8 yacds
rushing per game, see lots of v hat
Bulluck calls dumb mistakes like giv-
ing up big plays that must be correct-
ed. ;

Adrian Peterson broke loose for a
28-yard touchdown in last week's 30-
17 win over Minnesota, Rookie Steve
Slaton slipped through a w ould-be

tackle for a loss and ran 50 yards ina
31-12 win over Houston.

“We know there’s no such thing as
perfection when it comes to this
sport,” Bulluck said. “Every individual
on this defense tries to come as close
to perfection as they can.’

Knicks’
effries
breaks

fibula

mâ„¢ By HOWARD BECK
c.2008 New York Times
News Service

SARATOGA SPRINGS,
N.Y. In a signature
moment of a promising week,
Jared Jeffries elevated and
slapped away a layup attempt
by Stephon Marbury late
Thursday. The play exempli-
fied Jeffries’ rise in the
Knicks’ lineup, but it also end-
ed his training camp, and his
bid for a starting job.

Jeffries landed awkwardly
after blocking the shot and
limped off the court in pain.
Hours later, an X-ray showed
he had broken-his left fibula.
He will be out for six to eight
weeks.

Thus ended one of the feel-
good stories of training camp.
Jeffries had been a marginal
bench player under Isiah
Thomas, but he had fast
become one of coach Mike

D’Antoni’s favorites in the ©

frontcourt. Jeffries ran with
the first team all week, pri-
marily at center, and was
assured of a major role in
D’Antoni’s rotation when the
season opens October 29.

Instead, Jeffries will enter
November on the inactive list
and will miss the first two to
four weeks of the season. The
injury means that Zach Ran-
dolph, who entered camp with
much to prove, will probably
secure a Starting job in the
frontcourt. The absence of
Jeffries could also benefit
Eddy Curry, who has been out
all week with an illness and
was falling behind his team-
mates.

Moments after he injured
his leg, Jeffries: took an opti-
mistic tone, smiling and insist-
ing that he would be OK.

“When I landed, it just felt
like my muscle tightened up,”
he said. “It’s pretty painful.
V'll be all right. I hate having
anything like this. I don’t han-
dle pain well.”

Even with his leg wrapped
in ice, Jeffries sounded buoy-
ant about reviving his career
under D’Antoni, who values
intelligent, athletic, multi-
skilled players.

“He really knows how to
play basketball, and that’s
what we need,” D’Antoni
said. D’Antoni has compared
Jeffries to Boris Diaw, who
languished on the Atlanta
Hawks’ bench before blos-
soming under D’Antoni in
Phoenix.

“It’s been a total boost for
me,” Jeffries said. “He’s actu-
ally playing me how Isiah said
he was going to when I came
in here. He’s going to allow
me to run the floor and just
play basketball.”

That moment will have to
wait awhile.

five days
with eye
injury

DEERFIELD, Ill. (AP) —
Chicago Bulls forward Joakim
Noah is out with an eye injury.

The team says Noah will
likely miss five days after
being poked in the left eye
during practice on Wednes-
day.

The team said on Friday

Stern responds to
report on referees

NEW YORK (AP) — Tim
Donaghy is in prison, and
David Stern doesn’t want any-
one else in the NBA to get in
trouble because of gambling.

So Stern responded to a
report on NBA referees Thurs-
day by vowing to build the
“most effective possible sys-
tem” to monitor illegal activity
and preserve the game’s
integrity.

“The best we can do is do
the best we can, and that’s all
we can do. And if I spoke of
confidence, I would be exag-
gerating,” Stern said on a con-
ference call. “The only thing
I’m confident of is that if
there’s anything intelligent to
be done by the sports league,
that will be in the first rank of
rules and procedures and
analyses.”

The commissioner ordered
the investigation last August
after former referee Donaghy
was accused of.betting on
games he officiated and pro-
viding inside information to
gambling associates to win
their bets. Donaghy began
serving a 15-month sentence
on September 23 at a federal
prison in Pensacola, Florida.

Stern promised to imple-
ment all the recommendations
included in former federal
prosecutor Lawrence Pedow-

itz’s review of the NBA’s ref- .

erees operations department,
the result of a 14-month probe

that cost the league several mil- .

lion dollars.
““We will be up there with
the very best. No one will have

a better system than we do,”

Stern said. “But all of that said,
to the idea that, you know,
criminal activity will exist every
place else in the world except
in sports is just something that
we can’t guarantee. But we’re
going to have the most effec-
tive possible system that’s ever
been devised.”

The report recommended it
include: a hot line to anony-
mously raise questions about
gambling and game integrity
issues; making available any
complaints the league receives
about refs — beginning in the
2008-09 playoffs — to both

‘teams to avoid suspicions of

bias; requiring officials to annu-
ally report their contacts
among players and team per-
sonnel to the league so it can
monitor fraternization.

The league already has made
a number of changes, includ-
ing restructuring its referees
operations department and
began posting officiating
assignments the morning of
games.

The report also suggests
mandatory gambling education
for players.

“We believe that gambling
can expose the players and the
league to significant risks, and

operations, asks questions about a

therefore it is important that
players be educated regarding
those risks,” the report said.

The 116-page document dis-
puted Donaghy’s allegations of
specific misconduct and
favouritism toward certain
players and teams, but warned
“because the potential for ref-
eree bias remains a threat to
the integrity of the game, the
league can do more.”

It agreed with the federal
government that there was no



evidence Donaghy made any

calls to affect the outcome of

games after studying his work
in 17 of them, including 16 dur-
ing the 2006-07 season in which
it was believed Donaghy made
picks.

It also backed the govern-
ment’s stance that referee Scott
Foster wasn’t involved in any
of Donaghy’s misconduct.
Donaghy called Foster 134
times from October 2006-April
2007, but the FBI and Pedowitz



Love makin
impression

m@ By JON KRAWCZYNSKI



MANKATO, Minnessota
(AP) — Aside from being tall,
Kevin Love doesn’t necessari-
ly look like a basketball player.

The six-foot-nine forward
has a frame that is a little on
the lumpy side. When he gets
moving down the court, he
doesn’t glide so much as he
lumbers, elbows out to his sides
and head bobbing.

Outward appearances alone,
including his skin colour, may
lump Love in with players like
Adam Keefe, Nick Collison or
even teammate Mark Madsen.
But the Minnesota Timber-
wolves’ rookie is showing ear-
ly in his first training camp that
he could be so much more:

“Kevin’s really underrated
tight now,” Wolves guard
Rashad McCants said. “TI think
they think of him as being
undersized and one of those
white boys that just has to go in
there and bang.’

“But Kevin has a very good
finesse game where he can step
out and handle the ball and
shoot the 3. I’m_ very
impressed.”

Love may have just turned
20 years old, but he has been
fighting the stereotype of the
big, slow, white guy for his

whole basketball career. He
averaged 17.5 points and 10.6
rebounds a game in his lone
season at UCLA and was
acquired by the Wolves in a
seven-player, draft-night trade
with Memphis that sent‘ USC
guard O.J. Mayo to the Griz-
zlies for Love and Mike Miller.

Reaction

Local reaction to the trade
was resoundingly negative,
with Timberwolves fans livid
that Kevin McHale would let
go of the silky smooth Mayo
in the deal. But the Timber-
wolves see Love as a player
more comparable to Wes
Unseld — an undersized pow-
er forward and one of the best
rebounders in league history
— than Brian Scalabrine.

“My middie name's Wesley
after Wesley Unseld,” Love
said. “ICs just been ingrained in
my blood.”

Love’s father, Stan, played
in the NBA for parts of four
years in the 1970s after being
the No. 9 pick in the 1971 NBA
draft.

Timberwolves coach Randy
Wittman has already started to
see that pedigree, pointing to
KkKevin Love's basketball
instincts that distinguish bin

sood
with

from most 20-year-olds.

“What ‘he brings on to the
floor, it’s hard to teach,”
Wittman said. “Being at the
right spot at the right time,
those types of things. He has a
knack for those things.”

Stan Love didn’t just teach
his son how to shoot, dribble
and rebound. The younger
brother of Beach Boys lead
singer Mike Love, Stan “did a
lot of crazy things in his life-
time,” Kevin Love said.

“He was a guy that kind of
lived the Beach Boy life with
my uncle (Brian Wilson). He
took it easy a little bit,” Kevin
Love said. “He taught me to
have work ethic. ve always
kind of been a self-starter, but
he was always that push in the
back for me.

“He just told me to put it all
out there on the court. And
when you're off the court, be
gractous, be a nice person.
‘That's some of the best advice
I’ve ever gotten,”

Though he grew up in Port-
land, Oregon, Love's laid-back
persona was the perfect fit for
California cool UCLA.

After one All-America sea-
son in Westwood, Love was

picked fifth overall on draft
night. But the Grizzlies really
coveted Mayo. When they

description of their relation-

vided a reasonable explanation
for the calls.

“The report speaks for
itself,” said Lamell McMorris,

spokesman for the referees’

union.

Duncan in Houston and free-
lance writer Ken Powtak in
Newport, R.I. contributed to

early
olves

offered up Miller in the deal,
and also agreed to take the
contracts of Marko Jaric and
Antoine Walker off Minneso-
ta’s hands, it was “a no brain-
er,” GM Jim Stack said.

Stack compared him to
Atlanta Hawks forward Al
Horford, and Love is already
showing his quick feet down
low that allow him to get great
position for rebounds. He can
shoot the ball from the perime-
ter, get out and run the floor
and prides himself on pinpoint
outlet passes that start fast
breaks.

“The first time I met Kevin,
the first thing he said to me is,
“You're going to love playing
with me,’” star forward Al Jef-
ferson said,

There are plenty of ques-
tions still to be answered. Love
acknowledges that he has
weaknesses on the defensive
end, and how he will jell with
Jefferson as part of a smallish
frontcourt is still a point of
intrigue.

“If there’s doubters, I'm
going to try my best to prove
them wrong,” Love said with a
shrug. “If there’s high expec-
tations, I’m going to try to

‘prove them right and then

some. We'll just have to wait
and see.”

IAAF ratifies
Bolt's three
pecorts

MONTE CARLO, Mona
co (AP) — Usain Bolt’s three
world records at the Beijing

‘Olympics were officially rati-

fied Friday by the track and
field world governing body.

The Jamaican sprinter set
new marks in the 100 and 200
meters and ran the third leg
of the 400-meter relay with
teammates Nesta Carter,
Michael Frater and Asafa
Powell.

Bolt ran 9.69 seconds in the
100 — while slowing down in
the final 10 meters — on Aug.
16 to beat his own mark of
9.72, set in New York on May
31. Four days later, he clocked _
19.30 in the 200 to improve
the record set by Michael
Johnson at the 1996 Atlanta
Olympics. The Jamaican relay
team ran 37.10 on August 22
to slice 0.30 off a mark set by
two American relay squads in
‘92 and ‘93.

The International Associa-
tion of Athletics Federations
also ratified Russian Yelena
Isinbayeva’s world pole vault
record of 16 feet, 6 3/4 inches
set in Beijing. She beat her
own mark of 16-6 1/2 set in
Monte Carlo on July 29.

Russian Gulnara Galkina-
Samitova’s steeplechase world
record of 8:58.81 in Beijing
also was made official.

Weightlifter

hanned for life

NEW DELHI (AP) — The
Indian weightlifting federation
imposed a lifetime ban on
Satheesha Rai for his second
doping offense.

The WFI announced the
ban Friday after re-examining
Rai’s case, which it had earli-
er closed without taking action
because he had retired.

Singh didn’t say why the
case was reopened. Reports
said it was demanded by the

World Anti-Doping Agency.

Rai tested positive for a
stimulant at the 2002 Com
monwealth Games, which
resulted in the tevocation of
his two gold medals and one
bronze. He returned to com-
petition after.serving a six-
month suspension, but tested
positive for the steroid
stanozolol at India’s National
Games last year.

The WFI imposed a lifetime
ban on female weightlifter
Prameelavalli following her
second doping offense during
last month’s national junior
championship.

The WFI also suspended
the Uttar Pradesh state asso-
ciation for one year and
imposed a fine after two ot its
lifters failed doping tests in
one year. Pramod Goswami
and Manjit Singh face two-
year suspensions.
