single -
gunman

involved

& By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

A SINGLE gunman could

be to blame for a shooting

spree in two areas late Thurs-
day evening that left three
men in hospital and a 40-year-

old man dead, according to

police. ,

Officers say the same type
of weapon was used in the
separate incidents. “It is like-
ly that the same gunman may
be responsible for both mat-
ters,” said police.

In the first incident, at.

around 11pm, witnesses say a
hooded gunman, about 5ft
6ins tall and dressed in a dark
hooded shirt and blue jeans,
approached a group of men
near the High Noon Club and
began firing:shots from a
handgun.

Bullets struck two of the
men in the neck and the 40-
year-old was hit in the shoul-
der and abdomen. -

They were rushed to hospi-
tal where at 6am the 40-year-
old: died of his injuries. The
other men were detained and
listed in critical condition.

Later that evening a gun-
man, again dressed in dark
clothing, approached a 28-
year-old man who was near
his home on Shady Tree
Street and shot him in the left

“arm.

He was also rushed to hos-
pital where his condition is
serious but not life-threaten-
ing.

‘The victims have not yet
been identified and police are
still looking for a suspect in
both matters.

“Intensive investigations

have commenced into these’

shootings,” police said.

Shortly after their arrival at the Coral Harbour base. They were part of the group apprehended on

MORE than 100 Haitians are being held in
Carmichael Road Detention Centre today after
their 40-foot sloop ran aground in the central
Bahamas.

The apprehension of 116 immigrants is the
second in quick succession for the Defence
Force, who picked up 91 more off New. Provi-
-dence earlier this week.

The Defence Force was tipped off after wit-
nesses saw the vessel hit rocks off Duncan
Town, Ragged Island, on Wednesday.

Arriving at the scene aboard HMBS Yellow
Elder, officers found 88 men, 23 women and five
children in a dehydrated but mainly “fair” con-
dition, said a Defence Force source.

The immigrants were transported on the
Defence Force vessel to Nassau, arriving at
around 9am yesterday. They were then sent to
be processed by the Department of Immigra-
tion.






Officer in alleged shooting is
‘still wotking’ on police force

alowe@tribunemedia.net

Contrary to police assurances earlier this year,
The Tribune has evidence indicating that an offi-
cer who allegedly shot and killed Andros resi-
dent Kenneth Russell in 2007 might still be work-
ing on the force after being transferred from the
island. ©

Calls to a Nassau police station where he was
alleged to be employed, despite a lack of con-

clusion in the case of Russell’s killing, confirmed
that an officer with his name and rank is sta-
tioned there.

Relatives of deceased 24-year-old Mr Russell
expressed dismay at this yesterday, saying it con-
firmed what they had known for a long time.

They added that they are “still waiting for clo-
sure” on Kenneth’s killing as the police file on his

Police drug seiztrés across
the Bahamas during the past 10
months now total an estimated
street value in excess of $16 mil-
lion.

Officials claim that Haiti
remains a major regional hub
for drug smugglers who use the
Bahamas as an access point into
the United States.

Acting Commissioner Regi-

_nald Ferguson said: “A lot of

our drug troubles are coming
out of Haiti, and it’s because
we don’t have that kind of rela-
tionship with Haiti at this time
to get police-to-police informa-
tion.”

Commissioner Ferguson
added that, because of deterio-
rating conditions in Haiti,

numerous illicit acts continue

to occur under the radar. ©
In a 2007 report in the Los

Angeles Times, it was claimed

by an undercover American
journalist that Haitian police
and cartel.forces regularly traf-
fic drugs within the country

without authorities suspecting

anything or probing to prevent
these actions.

In addition to this, the 225-
mile border which separates
Haiti and the Dominican
Republic is seldom secured,
according to reports.

i In essence, smuggling opera-
tions are able to manoeuvre

- through the country into other

regions such as Venezuela,

Minister assesses
Eight Mile school’s
health problems

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

FREEPORT - Minister of
Health Dr Hubert Minnis visit-

ed the Eight Mile Rock School .

on Thursday after receiving
reports that several teachers
and students were experiencing
various health problems.

“We were informed that
quite a number of students and
teachers were having excessive
coughs, skin irritation, respira-
tory problems, and pink eye,”
he told the media. .

Dr Minnis said that they are
presently assessing the situation
and trying to determine how



many individuals at the school
are affected.

“Just reviewing the little
notes that we have seen it looks
more like some form of aller-
gy,” he added.

Bahamas Union of Teachers
president Belinda Wilson,
school superintendent Hezekiah
Dean and senior health officers
were also at the school.

The minister said that he has
been made aware of the vari-
ous health issues at Eight Mile
Rock High, including possible
mould growth and bat drop-
pings, as well as the many other
problems there.

Two weeks ago, Parent

Teacher Association (PTA).

officials expressed grave con-
cerns about the condition of the

classrooms. At the time, 18 of
the 40 classrooms had been
identified as a health risk
because of the serious rodent,
bat, and pigeon infestations.

Dr Minnis said that the Min-
istry of Health will request that
Environmental Health conduct
an assessment of the school.

“We need to make a deter-
mination whether these prob-
lems are contributing to the
health problem of teachers and
students.

“We need to find the cause
and I think Environmental
Health will be able to help us
with that and come up with a
solution,” he said.

In the meantime, Dr Minnis
stated that health officials will
conduct screenings of the affect-
ed individuals.

“Once we examine them and

‘make a determination that it is

an allergy, we will have an aller-

gy specialist review the records:

and patients,” he said.

In brie



THE Cancer Society of
the Bahamas will hold its 4th
Annual "Stride for Life"
Health Walk today at 6am. .

As before, the goal of this
awareness walk is to contin-
ue sending the message to
the public that there is hope,

healing and life after being

diagnosed with cancer, and
to encourage the general

-public to adopt healthy

behaviours.

The walk is this year being
held in conjunction with the
Susan G Komen Breast Can-
cer Foundation to also draw
attention to the recently

launched Bahamas Breast

Cancer Initiative.
The cost is $15 for adults
and $10 for kids.

Recapturing the American spirit

NEW YORK — A little more than two
weeks ago, when Barack Obama and John
McCain met for the second presidential
debate, Sen. Obama spoke up for his alter-

-native-energy plan by invoking perhaps
this nation’s greatest achievement:
“Now, when JFK said we’re going to the

moon in 10. years, nobody was sure how |

to do it, but we understood that; if the
- American people make a decision to do
. something, it gets done.”

This week, India, which started its space:

- programme in the same year that Neil

. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin planted the ©

U.S. flag on the lunar surface, launched its

own mission to the moon. Unlike Apollo

11, the Indian Chandrayaan spacecraft that
lifted off from an island in the Bay of Ben-

gal Wednesday was not manned, but it .

- does reflect a national spirit that our coun-
try once possessed, and which we will fail to
reclaim at our own peril.

How to define that spirit?
Some inside and outside of India have

been critical of the Chandrayaan moon ~

shot, saying that even at its relatively mod-
est $78 million price tag, the cost of the
mission represents an expenditure that the

country can little afford, given the fact that
millions of its inhabitants still live in con-
ditions of crushing poverty.

But the mission’s advocates point t to
Chandrayaan as a first step toward scien-
tific goals, that are«worthy of the expendi-
ture. Some of these goals are of a practical

nature, such as determining the prevalence
of helium-3, a rare isotope that could be
used as an energy source, and constructing
a three-dimensional map of the lunar sur-
face, which could facilitate future missions
for mining lunar resources. And some of
these goals serve pure science, such as

experiments designed to learn more about _

the moon’s origins.
They also point to the burgeoning space
programmes of China and Japan, and

emphasize India’s need to prove itself wor-

thy of a share of the growing market for
launching private satellites.

All these goals, poetic and prosaic, add
up to vision — long-term, beyond-the-
immediate-horizon vision. This is the kind
of vision that is given much lip service in
our own political rhetoric. But when it
comes to practice, some in America have
said in recent years that we can’t afford it,
just as some are still saying that now —
not in the midst of a Global War on Ter-
rorism, not as we face the worst financial

- crisis since the Great Depression, not as we
contemplate enormous projected budget |

deficits.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy
called upon America to put a man on the
moon and return him safely, among other
goals, “not because they are easy but
because they are hard.” In the years that
followed, our nation fought the Vietnam

‘War and launched, in the Great Society,

some of its most ambitious social pro- -

grammes. We saw our society. divided over
issues of race and war. And yet, in 190?

» Kennedy’s goal saw fruition.

The lesson is not only that we as a ation

can achieve great. things even in difficult .

times, but that our ambition to,achieve
great things is a necessary engine of
progress. Despite what we might like to
tell ourselves, America:has never had a
monopoly on this kind of forward-looking
spirit. But there was a time when we sure-

_ly had the world’s largest supply of it.

India’s own reach into, space serves as a
much-needed reminder that, at the start
of this new century, the rest of the world is

~ catching up. And if America wishes to stay
-great, we need to discover once again the

ambition to not only survive the present but
also capture and define the future.

Wanting

answers Of

gas prices

\EDITOR, The Tribune.

I read Mr Neymour’s press
statement in the Guardian on

Saturday, October 18, 2008 with ~

regards to the “soon to be”
decrease in gas price. |

I am aware that the US sup-
pliers of oil are different from
ours, and I do know from whom
we purchase (their head offices
are located in the US). Howev-
er, when the tanker leaves the
refinery, and the invoice reads

“xy&z”, I’m beginning to won- .
der if Mr Neymour, former oil

executive, knows what happens
next. I call upon Mr Neymour,
Mr Basden and the oil compa-
nies for'a factual explanation to
this madness.

I note from The Tribune
Business Section this morning
(October 21, 2008) that Shell
gas has decreased to $4.60 per
gallon. The reality on the

ground is that Shell Harrold
Road and Thompson Blvd sta-’

tions said that “there had to be
a mistake”. They are still pump-
ing gas at $5.36 per gallon.

Please don’t say that the $4.36
reflected the price of the “load”

in the tanker. That would be a _

lie!”

Is the system being manipu-
» lated?

The average gas price for
New Providence in January
2008 was $4.65 per gallon. The
average gas price for the US
(different suppliers) was

approximately $3.00 per gallon. .

A difference of $1.65 per gal-
lon. The average gas price for
New Rrovidence October 2008






Ca ele

letters@tribunemedia.net

approximately $5. 35/per gallon
(this is estimated — waiting on
info from Freeport and “move-
ment”). The average gas price
for the US October 2008
$2.91/per gallon. A difference
of approximately $2.44 per gal-
lon. Please note that today is
the 21st October, 2008 and our
gas price has not been officially

averaged for the months of Sep-
‘tember and October.

The “lag” should never occur
from island to island. Howev-
er, this is what is happening as I
write this letter. This problem
never occurred in the 1980’s.
Why is it happening in 2008?

Shell, Esso Texaco, Focal,
and BEC which one of you
would be the first to speak the
truth to the Bahamian con-
sumers — the people that keep
your establishment doors open.

Unfortunately somewhere at
the management, supervisory

or engineering level we have

had a sad performance gap that
has-cost residents thousands of
man hours of added clean-up
work and has been destructive
to the plant life and to general
tourist image of this island.
Simply arranging to-have a
large water tanker with sprin-
kler system that could have fol-
lowed closely behind the trench-

. ing machinery would have pre-
-vented almost all of the dust

generated. There was very little
dust from the trencher itself

. because the sub soil was suffi-

ciently damp briefly. However
as soon as backfilling com-
menced, the passing auto traffic
stirred huge dust clouds that
blighted the entire area and

continued for several days. Per-

sons driving from the extreme

‘east end must have suffered

through a dust storm going to
and from their work places for
several weeks.

If Water & Sewer couldn’t

‘otherwise acquire, rent, lease

or contract for a water tanker’s
services then it would have been
a great time for the Fire Depart-
ment to exercise and drill their
personnel by hosing down the
roadway.
The cost of providing reason-

‘able dust control would proba-

bly have cost the economy a few
thousand dollars. A pittance
compared to the value of thou-
sands of man hours of residents
cleaning up the mess left by
Water & Sewer Corp. |

End the blame
same right now

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I apologise for writing to you
again so soon after my last let-
ter. However there have been a
number of articles in the news-
papers recently on the “blame
game” where the FNM and the
PLP blame each other for the
economic mess we are in today.
I would like to say enough is
enough.

We all know we are in a mess

- and I am sure most people do

not care who was responsible
at this time. This will be decided

at the next election. What we

want is for the mess to be sorted
out so that we can get on with
our lives in peace and prosper-
ity!

Therefore it would be helpful
if the political class pulled what-
ever brain power they have and
“together” sort out our prob-
lems. I am sure there are good
thinkers in all the political par-
ties and we need them to con-
centrate on a resolution of the
problems and not waste time
and resources on ‘blaming”

each other. And if they do not
have the brains to help they
should keep quiet. I read a
headline today which said: “PM
is accused of making unflatter-
ing comments on. public ser-

. vants performance”.

Anyone who has dealt with
public servants will I am sure
agree with the PM’s comments,
and the bad eggs overshadow
the good eggs and there are’
many on both sides. Can we for-
get about re-election, please,
and put your minds together to
get the people who are now on
two-day weeks and cannot pay
their food bills and. electricity
bills back to work.

While on the subject of elec-
tricity bills, perhaps that is one
place to start the “thinking”
process. Why do we have to pay
rates per kw that appear to be
at least double other countries?
Can someone explain in simple
terms, what is wrong with BEC?

By LLONELLA GILBERT
Bahamas Information Services

MINISTER of State for Finance and
the Public Service Zhivargo Laing urged

human resource managers and officers in -

the civil service to come up with an

action plan to revolutionise and trans-

form how they do their business.
Minister Laing issued the challenge

on Thursday during a workshop.

designed to,improve the delivery of
human resources to facilitate first-class
service in Partnership with stakehold-
ers.

The Department of Public Service set

_up the workshop for human resource
personnel with four goals:

e Strengthening their potential for
intuitive thinking, creativity and inno-

vation to enhance their human resource
management skills.

* Identifying human resource chal-
lenges in the public service.

» Exploring best practices in human
resources to improve the delivery of ser-
vices.

~e Analysing and developing partici-
pants’ institutional capacity to improve

the efficiency of the public service ©
through information technology and -

quality service to its internal and external
customers.

Minister Laing said there are thou-
sands of people who have a positive
experience being served by public ser-
vants, but there are many who do not.

“Tam also fully aware,” he said, “that
there are thousands more Bahamians

whose interaction with the service leaves
them with a sense that these people do
not understand they wotk for us, we do
not work for them.”

Ingraham is very serious about bring-
ing changes to the public service to
increase customer satisfaction and effi-
ciency.

The prime minister has charged the
Minister of State for Finance with
responsibility of improving the public
service, and the workshop for the human

- resource professionals is one step in

bringing that goal to fruition.

Mr Laing said the government intends
to implement changes that should result
in improvements in how human resource
departments are run. For example, he
said the Annual Confidential Report
(ACR), which is the name given to the
appraisal forms for civil servants, will be
made simpler and more user friendly.

“Additionally,” Mr Laing said, “we
have to get results in terms of turning
those ACRs around more quickly. It
cannot be that people go three or five
years without getting an appraisal done

~ and then somebody attempts to give me

an appraisal of somebody for five years
running.

You cannot convince me that you = |,
‘can remember anybody’s performance
from five years ago. They need to be -

timely.”

Minister Laing also challenged the
human resources pérsonnel to remem-
ber they work with human beings and as
such, they should treat employees as

they themselves would want to be treat- .

ed.

"He said they should have more com-
munication with staff, keeping them
informed as to their potential to move
up in the service.

Mr Laing cicueated that this might
create less frustration among civil ser-

_ vants who feel they are not progressing

Dean.

~ It was Ms Dean who, in April
of this year, first alleged that
the officer who is claimed to
have shot her brother was still
working, despite Commissioner
Reginald Ferguson’s April,
2008, suggestion that he had
been suspended.

Mr Ferguson dismissed her
claim as a “rumour” at the time,
saying the officer would remain
suspended on half-pay until a
conclusion on the matter is
reached in the coroner’s court.

When this newspaper con-
tacted the stations to which Ms
Dean said the officer and two
other Andros colleagues
involved in'the incident had

_ been transferred and asked for
them by name, officers con-
firmed that men by those names
work there.

“It’s been too long,” said the

this is the case and would have

the officer and a.pay cut is what
“should have happened” in a
case such as this, adding how-

The fact that the officer still
appears to be working while no
conclusion has yet been reached
in the case attracted the atten-
tion of human rights organisa-

‘tion Amnesty International.

The organisation previously
highlighted Kenneth’s death in
their 2008 “State of the World’s
Human Rights” report released
earlier this year.

Police recommended there
should be an inquest into the
matter in November last year.

‘Kenneth’s mother, 52-year-
old Alma Russell, said: “I’ve
just been hoping that they
would say or do something...but
there’s been nothing.”

Her son’s death on Septem-
ber 2, 2007, sparked outage in
Andros.

_ He had been at the Club
Cabana bar in Lowe Sound with

some friends when they were ©

approached by officers from the
mobile patrol unit on the island.

Police claimed there was a
“confrontation” between the
friends and police before Ken-
neth was shot at close range,
but other witnesses disputed
this version of events.

Ms Russell now looks after
her grandson, a year-old tod-
dler who was born shortly after
Kenneth died. :

’ The. grandmother said she
was “so amazed” when she
heard her grandson call out for
his father recently, despite being
too young to have met him
before he died.

“He looks through the win-

The alleged plot started in
Montreal, included multiple

agent was given a $10,000
cash down payment, court

documents say.

The last meeting was Octo-
ber 15 ata restaurant at
Logan Airport in Boston:
where Djokich allegedly met
with the undercover agent to
finalize the details of the
killing, which was to take
place in Florida.

The agent allegedly asked
Djokich, the only suspect
present, to clarify that he
wanted the target killed.

In the affidavit, dated last
Friday, Immigration and Cus-
toms. Enforcement Special
Agent Derek Dunn says he
first became aware of the
case in July when a confi-
dential informant was

‘approached in Montreal on
behalf of two men who
turned out to be Djokich and
Deangelis.

The affidavit says Djokich
‘and other investors believed
they had been defrauded in
an investment venture with
a company in which Richard
Devries of Calgary was a

not describe the venture.

The informant was initially
asked to go, to the Bahamas

“It’s police, it’s defence force,
it’s immigration, it’s not a thing

. She added that because of the

Bahamas’ location between
North and South America, the
country was vulnerable to
smugglers.

Goodell says ‘Pacman’ could play in NFL again

NEW YORK (AP) — Roger
Goddell is leaving open the pos-
sibility that suspended corner-
back Adam “Pacman” Jones
could play again in the NFL,
but made it clear the oft-trou-
bled player must first work
through his off-field issues.

The commissioner said on
ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike in

the Morning show that he’s ,

grown weary of the trouble
caused by Jones, who checked
into an alcohol treatment facil-
ity after his latest suspension
for violating the league’s per-
sonal conduct policy.

“I’ve been consistent on this
one.

“He has to recognise his
responsibility to play in the
NFL,” Goodell said from Lon-

“don, where the San Diego

Chargers and New Orleans .

Saints are preparing to play
Sunday. —

“He has not made good deci-
sions,” Goodell added. “I think
after this latest incident it was

clear to me there was something.

else going on that we need to
evaluate and we need to address
directly.”

Only six weeks after being
reinstated from a 17-month sus-
pension because of repeated
legal problems, Jones ran into
trouble again when he was
involved in an alcohol-related
scuffle October 7 with one of
his bodyguards at a private par-
ty in Dallas.

The Cowboys had employed
the bodyguards to try to keep
Jones out of trouble.

Team owner Jerry Jones said
Monday that his latest reclama-
tion project had entered an

alcohol treatment facility “in
another part of the country”

and that it was done entirely |

through and by the NFL. |

The league declined to com-
ment, but has said Jones’ rein-
statement will depend on strict
compliance with treatment

plans and an evaluation by .

“clinical experts.” .

Goodell plans to determine
the full length of the suspension
after the Cowboys play Novem-
ber 16 at Washington.

He has said a lifetime ban

remains a possibility.

“Tf he can deal with whatever
issues he may have, handle his
responsibilities, make good
decisions, then he may have an
opportunity to play again in the
league,” Goodell said.

“Tm frankly tired of talking
about it right now.’

Redskins’ Rogers matures
into top-notch cornerback

@ By JOSEPH WHITE
AP Sports Writer

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) —

- Carlos Rogers seemed destined
to become one of those high
first-round draft picks who nev-



er quite lived up to his poten-

tial.
. He was developing into a ser-

viceable starting cornerback, |

relying on his raw talent with-
out taking the game as seriously
as he should. Surely the Wash-
ington Redskins weren’t getting
full value for a player chosen
with the ninth overall selection
in the 2005 draft.

-“As a rookie, you come in,
“you got a little money,” Rogers
Said. “You want to ‘go out and
do things.”

That’s out on the town — not
out on the field. Rogers didn’t

there is a new Carlos Rogers

wearing No. 22. He’s still smil- -

ing, but it’s a smile brimming
with confidence knowing that

he’s finally figured things out..

For the first time in his career,

back, shutting down the Oppo:
nents’ top receivers. ~
Rogers is tied for second in

_ the league in deflected passes
with 11 and has yet to be beaten

for a touchdown this season.
He’s a key reason the Redskins
are off to a 5-2 start with a
defense ranked sixth in the NFL.
“He started to focus,” defensive

coordinator Greg Blache said.

“He started to concentrate on
the detail of the game, and that’s
one of the big parts of becoming
a professional. ... All of a sudden,
all the wires connected. All the

“pieces fit. All of a sudden, the
light came on, *Hey, ’ma big-

“He’s always been fearless,
but now he’s got this knowledge
and this confidence to go along

. with his courage and that natur-

al athletic ability to become a
big-time player.”

Over the last three games,
Rogers has corralled three
standout receivers: DeSean
Jackson of the Philadelphia

Eagles, Torry Holt of the St.
Louis Rams and Braylon
Edwards of the Cleveland

_Browns.

Edwards, held to four catches
for 58 yards, said he was frus-
trated virtually the entire game
while facing Rogers in the Red-
skins’ 14-11 victory. His play has
made the nagging injuries to vet-
eran cornerback Shawn Springs,
who has already missed three
games this season, more bear-
able.

“Last year, he was sort of like
a puppy out there, smiling and
laughing,” Blache said. “But
(now) when he walks into the
meeting room, there’s a cold-

thing: "This is what [I’ve got to
learn. This what I’ve got to do.’

will stay later to watch video to

0-7 Bengals going
to Houston for.
flashback game

@ By JOE KAY
AP Sports Writer

CINCINNATI (AP) — Dick
LeBeau. predicted a win, Chad
Johnson went ahead and guar-
anteed it. Remarkably, both
turned out to be right.

The last time the Cincinnati

’ Bengals went to Houston, they

were 0-7 and awfully chatty for
a winless team. Even the odds-
makers expected them to lose

_ that 2002 game against the Tex-

ans, an expansion team that had

never before been favored.
-Cincinnati 38, Houston 3.

The losing streak was over —

- for one week. -

As they get ready to head
back to Houston this weekend,
the Bengals have the same
record but few parallels with
that team of six years ago.
LeBeau is the defensive coor-
dinator in Pittsburgh. Johnson
has changed his last name to
Ocho Cinco. And there’s a

whole lot less hubris this time .

around.

“There’s really no room to
talk trash,” Ocho Cinco said.

That ’02 Bengals bunch had
notrouble, |

LeBeau was in the final year
of his contract. During mini-

‘camp that year, he donned a

Superman shirt and ran through

~a banner that said, “Bengals

Super Bowl 2002.” When the
team fell to 0-7 with a'30-24 loss
to Tennessee, LeBeau got emo-
tional after the game.

“We had every opportunity

‘to win, and next week we will

win,” he said, his voice rising
for emphasis.

Told of his coach’s predic-
tion, Johnson went one ae fur-
ther.

“Next week, I assure you a
win,” he said. “I guarantee you
we will win.”

It was the first time the sec;
ond-year receiver went out on a
limb that way. He backed it up

‘by catching one of Jon Kitna’s

four touchdown passes against
the Texans, who were 2-5 head-
ing into the game and had the
Bengals’ inflammatory quotes
posted on their bulletin boards
for inspiration.

Afterward, LeBeau played
down how his prediction had

* come true.

“I didn’t know my powers of
clairvoyance were so omnipo-
tent,” he said. “I just wanted

them (the Bengals) to know I

‘was proud of them and I

believed that.”

He was done predicting, and
the Bengals were done winning.
They lost their next.six games
before winning another, and
finished the season a franchise-
worst 2-14. LeBeau was fired

and Marvin Lewis was brought .

in as head coach.

Only four players remain
from the 2002 team: Ocho Cin-
co, receiver T.J. Housh-
mandzadeh, left tackle Levi
Jones and long-snapper Brad
St. Louis. Ocho Cinco had for-
gotten about his guarantee until
he was reminded this week.
Houshmandzadeh
remember too much about the
game, either. —

“What’s funny i is I did play
that game,” said Housh-
mandzadeh, who had three
catches. “I played that. game
and I never thought I was going
to play that game. Let’s just say
I went to-bed that night at 4

o’clock in the morning. I went:
to bed late because I didn’t °

think Id play.”

Just like in 2002, the Bengals
are heading to Houston as an
underdog. The Texans are 2-4,
coming off wins over Miami
and winless Detroit. They’ve
never won three in a row in
their brief history. They were
a 10 1/2-point favorite at the
start of the week.

The Bengals? A loss on Sun-
day would drop them to 0-8 for
the fifth time in franchise his-
tory. Their worst start was 0-10
in 1993 under Dave Shula.
They’ve also started. 0-8 three
other times: 1978, 1991 and
1994.

Cincinnati is coming off a 38-
10 loss to Pittsburgh, their most
lopsided defeat of the season.
Although there’s been,no pre-
dicting and no guaranteeing,
there was a sense of optimism
that good things could happen
again in Houston.

“T honestly think we re going
to win every game,” Housh-
mandzadeh said. “Last week I
was like, "Man, Pittsburgh is 4-
1, but going into the game I
thought we were going to beat
them. That didn’t happen. But I
think the same thing this week:
We’re going to win.

“Eventually we’re going to
win, and hopefully it’s sooner
rather than later.”

Goorlell: Ad
revenues
dropping for

NAL games

lm By MATTIAS KAREN

AP Sports Writer .

LONDON (AP) — Broad-
casters are already seeing a drop
in advertising revenue for NFL
games because of the global
‘economic crisis, league com-
missioner Roger Goodell said
: Friday. -

At a.conference on the slob-
alization of sports held ahead.
of Sunday’s NFL game in Lon-
don, Goodell also reiterated
that the league will face chal-
lenges in the current economic
climate, but that the NFL is

. “incredibly strong” and should

weather the downturn yogic

ly unscathed.
However, he said senor

partners are already reporting

that advertisers are pulling

back, both on a local and
national level. -
- “The sales market is differ-
ent than it was even several
weeks ago,” Goodell said dur-
ing a panel discussion with
Richard Scudamore, the chief
executive of the English Pre-
mier League. “We see it pri- |
marily on a local level, which I
think is through a large extent a
reflection of what is happening
-in the automobile industry. But
it has now in the receni weeks
gone to the national level. It’s
had an impact. The fortunate
thing is that it hasn’t had an ©
impact on our viewership.”
Goodell did not give any spe-
cific figures for the advertising
drop, and was not available for
media interviews after the dis-
cussion, which was moderated
by CBS announcer Jim Nantz.
Goodell said he was confi-

" dent that ad sales for the games

would stabilize even in the short
term, adding that holding onto
sponsors would be a bigger
long-term problem for the
league.

“That’s something we are
evaluating, whether there will
be a long-term change in the
way companies invest in spon-
sorships, and how they do that,”
he said. “And that could impact
us well beyond 2009.”

But even with all profession-
al sports already feeling the
squeeze of the credit crunch,
. Goodell was confident that the

, NEL’s products should stay in
high demand.

“It’s hard to see that people
are going to give up quality i ina -
time like this,” he said, “I think
we are the ones who have the
potential to come through it the
strongest if we’re intelligent
about it.”

The NFL is staging its second
game at: Wembley on Sunday,
when the New Orleans Saints
face the San Diego Chargers.
The game is a way for the NFL
to continue its growth abroad.
The NBA and NHL have also
staged games in Europe over
the last two years.

But with the Premier League
already established as one of
the most popular in the world,
Scudamore said he didn’t feel
threatened that American
sports would take away revenue
from football.

“J don’t see really that we’re
competing,” Scudamore said. “I
think it’s an awfully big pond
out there that we all fish in.”

Ferguson not surprised 2
Beckham’s proposed move

MANCHESTER, England
(AP) — Alex Ferguson isn’t
surprised that David Beckham
could return to European soc-
cer on a loan deal because he
believes the former England
captain is used to a higher stan-
dard than is played in Major

‘League Soccer.

“Tt is hardly a surprise,” said
the Manchester United manag-
er, who sold Beckham to Real

Madrid five years ago. “Going:

to the United States does not
get you the kind of football he is
used to. It is not the right level
of football, therefore coming
back into the mainstream of the
game is.not.a surprise.”
Beckham could move to AC
Milan from the Los Angeles
Galaxy in January, although the
MLS team wants him back
before its season starts in

March. There is speculation,
however, that Milan may'try.
and turn the loan deal into a-:

full transfer.
Beckham has played for the

Galaxy for two seasons and the

team has failed each time to
reach the playoffs.

With the MLS season com-
ing to an end, Beckham needs

to continue playing competitive

soccer or he will lose his place in
the England squad.

England coach Fabio Capel-
lo, who used to be at Milan, sent

- Beckham on as a late substitute

in the team’s four World Cup
analiyne victories and is

adamant that he will only select
players who are in competitive

action. . |

Real :Madrid president
Roman Calderon, who sold
Beckham to the Galaxy in 2007,
said Beckham can still be influ-
ential. -

“He is a player who can give
a lot to the club he signs for,”
Calderon said in yn endon.

P easley arrives in Miami
to give Wade an assist

@ By TIM REYNOLDS
AP. Sports Writer

MIAMI (AP) — Michael
Beasley looked over the
defense, saw Dwyane Wade was
open and set the 2006 NBA
finals MVP up perfectly for an
easy score.

It was only a preseason game,

. but the moment may have been
a harbinger of what awaits the
Miami Heat.

A year ago, as.they stumbled
to the NBA’s. worst record,
Wade and the Heat desperately
needed an assist. They hope it’s
arrived in someone who has
gotten more tattoos than birth-
day cakes, an overgrown
teenager who still claims to

watch Sponge Bob Square .

Pants and whose store of choice
is Target because he can buy
video games, Hot Pockets and a
flat-screen TV at the same time.

“How can you beat that? You
cannot beat that,” he marvels.

Beasley is a quirky-19-year-
old, for sure.

But he can play — and Wade
is thrilled to have him.

“Michael can flat-out do it
all,” Wade said. “He’s one of »

those players who does things in
practice you've never seen. His

_ athleticism, his skill level, it’s’
just there. He’ll be able to come. .

in and play right away.”

That’s exactly what the Heat
thought when they spent the
No. 2 pick in this year’s draft
on Beasley, whose numbers

from his lone season at Kansas’

State were scintillating: 26.2

points, 12.4 rebounds, 54 per- |

cent shooting. He scores with
either hand, from inside or out,
with that uncanny ability to beat

defenders in just about any

situation. E
He is certainly a huge piece of
the rebuilding puzzle for Miami,
which underwent an offseason
‘dominated by. change.

Since last year’s 15-67 deba-
cle, Pat Riley took his place in
the Hall of Fame, Erik Spoel-

injuries, sO the center pasition
remains very suspect...

‘But where there’s Wade,
there’ s hope.

He recovered from a two-
year battle with knee. pain and
was the leading scorer on the
U.S. Olympic team that won
gold in- Beijing this summer. If
healthy, he’ll put up MVP-cal-
iber numbers. And with Shawn
Marion. and Udonis Haslem in
tow, the Heat have pieces to

compete. ©: ane

_ “Of course‘on paper »thete'is”
a lot of teams more stacked

than us, better than\us on
paper,” Wade said. “But we
have got to use what we have to
get over the hump, come out
early on and find a way to stay
above water.”
‘Beasley could make the dif-
ference in that quest.

“T will not care what my num-

’ bers are,” Beasley said. “As

long. as we’re winning, I will be
fine. If we’re not, I won’t be.”
He wouldn’t have been fine
last-year. In high school and col-
lege-— combined — Beasley’s
teams lost a total of 17 games.
At one point last season, the
Heat lost 15 in a row. It’s hard
to envision a team with Wade,

Beasley and Marion enduring |

a slump like that. “I’m not going
to be the go-to guy,” Beasley
said, “I’m still trying to find my

place. But I can score.’

That’s not the only thing he’s
known for, though.

Beasley knows he has some

_ maturing to do, but doesn’t hide

his frustration that his prankster

- ways in high school still lend ©

themselves to questions about
his character today. He has a
reputation of being aloof, a bad
teammate, an egotistical play-
er'who oily cares about stats.
All not true, he insists.
“I’m a really nice guy,” he
said. “I don’t know why every-
body thinks that I’m a jerk, that
I have character issues, that I
don’t care about the team, that
I don’t work hard. Honestly, I
don’t know where people get
that from. I love kids. I love see-
ing little kids smile. That makes
me smile. The worst thing I did
was coming up through high
school I wrote on a black car
with a black marker.”
Now, he can doodle on any of
nine cars. That’s how many he

owns. Five years ago, his mom
was driving him around ina»

1989 Nissan Pathfinder. He’s
found a different, path since:
There’s a Mercedes, a Phantom,

a Range Rover and a Bentley in

the driveway of his new home.
Good thing his contract is

worth $20 million over the next -

four years, because he’s already
acquired all those cars, along
with seven televisions (for a Six-
room house), pushed his per-
sonal tattoo collection to 25 (a

collage that includes dollar signs.
on the inside of his right fore-

arm and ’Married to the Game’
on his left shoulder), along with
a wardrobe filled with clothes
that were not purchased at Tar-
get.

‘He’s never been rich like this

before, of course. And at times,
it’s tough to handle, so he asks
for help.

“When you’ve got a good ;
supporting cast, a good group.

of people around you, it’s not
that hard,” Beasley said. “I’ve

got veterans on the team, I’ve
got:Pat Riley, P’'ve got people i
in m wn circle that I can go to
give mé wisdom. So when

you've got that, it’s not that
hard.”

There’s a perception that the
lure of South Beach is too tough

for young athletes in Miami -to«

ignore. Beasley busts that myth.

He can rarely be found near
the beach, and has his own
unique reason why.

“There’s no McDonald’s overs

there,” he said.

ANAHEIM, California (AP)
—— Kobe Bryant was held out
of the Lakers’ preseason game

Vhursday night because of
residtial swelling in his right
knee following a collision with
teammate Josh Powell on Tues-
day night against Charlotte.

.“Pve got a little bit of puffi-

It’s just from the trauma of

Bryant, the NBA’s reigning

rebound and banged knees with
Powell.

“I feel fine,” Bryant said. “I
lifted weights this morning for
my legs, did lunges, jumps and
all that kind of stuff, and I felt
fine. I felt strong. So I’m all
right. I just want-to get the

A COCKTAIL reception celebrating the merger
of Credit Agricole Suisse Bank & Trust (Bahamas)
Ltd, formerly National Bank of Canada (Interna-
tional) Ltd, and Credit Agricole Suisse (Bahamas)
Ltd,

Credit Agricole Suisse SA Switzerland inaugurat-
ed Bahamas branch on October 14 at a reception in
the foyer of the Goodman’s Bay Corporate Centre
on West Bay Street.

Mr Christophe Gancel, Chief Executive Officer of
Credit Agricole Suisse SA Switzerland, said the bank
believes in the Bahamas and wants to add to the
country’s success and its future.

“We are confident in our mutual achievement
because we share mutual values: Quality, commit-
ment, creativity and, last but not least, hope and con-
fident in the future,” Mr Gancell said.

The Credit Agricole Group, the third largest for-
eign private bank in Switzerland with branches in 20
countries, was founded more than 100 years ago and
is today one of the biggest banks in the world in
terms of share holder equity.

“We have been able to reach this position thanks
to hard work, tenacity and client respect,” Mr Gan-
cel said. He also called for “optimism” in the face of
the international financial crisis.

“This is certainly the biggest crisis of the century
but we have to be optimistic because a crisis always
ends one day ‘and because our group is one of the
strongest and safest in the world

“So this crisis might be for us an opportunity to
stick together, to develop our core business, especial-
ly in your splendid country,” Mr Gancel said.

single -
gunman

involved

& By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

A SINGLE gunman could

be to blame for a shooting

spree in two areas late Thurs-
day evening that left three
men in hospital and a 40-year-

old man dead, according to

police. ,

Officers say the same type
of weapon was used in the
separate incidents. “It is like-
ly that the same gunman may
be responsible for both mat-
ters,” said police.

In the first incident, at.

around 11pm, witnesses say a
hooded gunman, about 5ft
6ins tall and dressed in a dark
hooded shirt and blue jeans,
approached a group of men
near the High Noon Club and
began firing:shots from a
handgun.

Bullets struck two of the
men in the neck and the 40-
year-old was hit in the shoul-
der and abdomen. -

They were rushed to hospi-
tal where at 6am the 40-year-
old: died of his injuries. The
other men were detained and
listed in critical condition.

Later that evening a gun-
man, again dressed in dark
clothing, approached a 28-
year-old man who was near
his home on Shady Tree
Street and shot him in the left

“arm.

He was also rushed to hos-
pital where his condition is
serious but not life-threaten-
ing.

‘The victims have not yet
been identified and police are
still looking for a suspect in
both matters.

“Intensive investigations

have commenced into these’

shootings,” police said.

Shortly after their arrival at the Coral Harbour base. They were part of the group apprehended on

MORE than 100 Haitians are being held in
Carmichael Road Detention Centre today after
their 40-foot sloop ran aground in the central
Bahamas.

The apprehension of 116 immigrants is the
second in quick succession for the Defence
Force, who picked up 91 more off New. Provi-
-dence earlier this week.

RBDF Photos




The Defence Force was tipped off after wit-
nesses saw the vessel hit rocks off Duncan
Town, Ragged Island, on Wednesday.

Arriving at the scene aboard HMBS Yellow
Elder, officers found 88 men, 23 women and five
children in a dehydrated but mainly “fair” con-
dition, said a Defence Force source.

The immigrants were transported on the
Defence Force vessel to Nassau, arriving at
around 9am yesterday. They were then sent to
be processed by the Department of Immigra-
tion.






Officer in alleged shooting is
‘still wotking’ on police force

@ By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter
alowe@tribunemedia.net

Contrary to police assurances earlier this year,
The Tribune has evidence indicating that an offi-
cer who allegedly shot and killed Andros resi-
dent Kenneth Russell in 2007 might still be work-
ing on the force after being transferred from the
island. ©

Calls to a Nassau police station where he was
alleged to be employed, despite a lack of con-

clusion in the case of Russell’s killing, confirmed
that an officer with his name and rank is sta-
tioned there.

Relatives of deceased 24-year-old Mr Russell
expressed dismay at this yesterday, saying it con-
firmed what they had known for a long time.

They added that they are “still waiting for clo-
sure” on Kenneth’s killing as the police file on his

Police drug seiztrés across
the Bahamas during the past 10
months now total an estimated
street value in excess of $16 mil-
lion.

Officials claim that Haiti
remains a major regional hub
for drug smugglers who use the
Bahamas as an access point into
the United States.

Acting Commissioner Regi-

_nald Ferguson said: “A lot of

our drug troubles are coming
out of Haiti, and it’s because
we don’t have that kind of rela-
tionship with Haiti at this time
to get police-to-police informa-
tion.”

Commissioner Ferguson
added that, because of deterio-
rating conditions in Haiti,

numerous illicit acts continue

to occur under the radar. ©
In a 2007 report in the Los

Angeles Times, it was claimed

by an undercover American
journalist that Haitian police
and cartel.forces regularly traf-
fic drugs within the country

without authorities suspecting

anything or probing to prevent
these actions.

In addition to this, the 225-
mile border which separates
Haiti and the Dominican
Republic is seldom secured,
according to reports.

i In essence, smuggling opera-
tions are able to manoeuvre

- through the country into other

regions such as Venezuela,

Minister assesses
Eight Mile school’s
health problems

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

FREEPORT - Minister of
Health Dr Hubert Minnis visit-

ed the Eight Mile Rock School .

on Thursday after receiving
reports that several teachers
and students were experiencing
various health problems.

“We were informed that
quite a number of students and
teachers were having excessive
coughs, skin irritation, respira-
tory problems, and pink eye,”
he told the media. .

Dr Minnis said that they are
presently assessing the situation
and trying to determine how



many individuals at the school
are affected.

“Just reviewing the little
notes that we have seen it looks
more like some form of aller-
gy,” he added.

Bahamas Union of Teachers
president Belinda Wilson,
school superintendent Hezekiah
Dean and senior health officers
were also at the school.

The minister said that he has
been made aware of the vari-
ous health issues at Eight Mile
Rock High, including possible
mould growth and bat drop-
pings, as well as the many other
problems there.

Two weeks ago, Parent

Teacher Association (PTA).

officials expressed grave con-
cerns about the condition of the

classrooms. At the time, 18 of
the 40 classrooms had been
identified as a health risk
because of the serious rodent,
bat, and pigeon infestations.

Dr Minnis said that the Min-
istry of Health will request that
Environmental Health conduct
an assessment of the school.

“We need to make a deter-
mination whether these prob-
lems are contributing to the
health problem of teachers and
students.

“We need to find the cause
and I think Environmental
Health will be able to help us
with that and come up with a
solution,” he said.

In the meantime, Dr Minnis
stated that health officials will
conduct screenings of the affect-
ed individuals.

“Once we examine them and

‘make a determination that it is

an allergy, we will have an aller-

gy specialist review the records:

and patients,” he said.

In brie



THE Cancer Society of
the Bahamas will hold its 4th
Annual "Stride for Life"
Health Walk today at 6am. .

As before, the goal of this
awareness walk is to contin-
ue sending the message to
the public that there is hope,

healing and life after being

diagnosed with cancer, and
to encourage the general

-public to adopt healthy

behaviours.

The walk is this year being
held in conjunction with the
Susan G Komen Breast Can-
cer Foundation to also draw
attention to the recently

launched Bahamas Breast

Cancer Initiative.
The cost is $15 for adults
and $10 for kids.

Recapturing the American spirit

NEW YORK — A little more than two
weeks ago, when Barack Obama and John
McCain met for the second presidential
debate, Sen. Obama spoke up for his alter-

-native-energy plan by invoking perhaps
this nation’s greatest achievement:
“Now, when JFK said we’re going to the

moon in 10. years, nobody was sure how |

to do it, but we understood that; if the
- American people make a decision to do
. something, it gets done.”

This week, India, which started its space:

- programme in the same year that Neil

. Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin planted the ©

U.S. flag on the lunar surface, launched its

own mission to the moon. Unlike Apollo

11, the Indian Chandrayaan spacecraft that
lifted off from an island in the Bay of Ben-

gal Wednesday was not manned, but it .

- does reflect a national spirit that our coun-
try once possessed, and which we will fail to
reclaim at our own peril.

How to define that spirit?
Some inside and outside of India have

been critical of the Chandrayaan moon ~

shot, saying that even at its relatively mod-
est $78 million price tag, the cost of the
mission represents an expenditure that the

country can little afford, given the fact that
millions of its inhabitants still live in con-
ditions of crushing poverty.

But the mission’s advocates point t to
Chandrayaan as a first step toward scien-
tific goals, that are«worthy of the expendi-
ture. Some of these goals are of a practical

nature, such as determining the prevalence
of helium-3, a rare isotope that could be
used as an energy source, and constructing
a three-dimensional map of the lunar sur-
face, which could facilitate future missions
for mining lunar resources. And some of
these goals serve pure science, such as

experiments designed to learn more about _

the moon’s origins.
They also point to the burgeoning space
programmes of China and Japan, and

emphasize India’s need to prove itself wor-

thy of a share of the growing market for
launching private satellites.

All these goals, poetic and prosaic, add
up to vision — long-term, beyond-the-
immediate-horizon vision. This is the kind
of vision that is given much lip service in
our own political rhetoric. But when it
comes to practice, some in America have
said in recent years that we can’t afford it,
just as some are still saying that now —
not in the midst of a Global War on Ter-
rorism, not as we face the worst financial

- crisis since the Great Depression, not as we
contemplate enormous projected budget |

deficits.

In 1962, President John F. Kennedy
called upon America to put a man on the
moon and return him safely, among other
goals, “not because they are easy but
because they are hard.” In the years that
followed, our nation fought the Vietnam

‘War and launched, in the Great Society,

some of its most ambitious social pro- -

grammes. We saw our society. divided over
issues of race and war. And yet, in 190?

» Kennedy’s goal saw fruition.

The lesson is not only that we as a ation

can achieve great. things even in difficult .

times, but that our ambition to,achieve
great things is a necessary engine of
progress. Despite what we might like to
tell ourselves, America:has never had a
monopoly on this kind of forward-looking
spirit. But there was a time when we sure-

_ly had the world’s largest supply of it.

India’s own reach into, space serves as a
much-needed reminder that, at the start
of this new century, the rest of the world is

~ catching up. And if America wishes to stay
-great, we need to discover once again the

ambition to not only survive the present but
also capture and define the future.

Wanting

answers Of

gas prices

\EDITOR, The Tribune.

I read Mr Neymour’s press
statement in the Guardian on

Saturday, October 18, 2008 with ~

regards to the “soon to be”
decrease in gas price. |

I am aware that the US sup-
pliers of oil are different from
ours, and I do know from whom
we purchase (their head offices
are located in the US). Howev-
er, when the tanker leaves the
refinery, and the invoice reads

“xy&z”, I’m beginning to won- .
der if Mr Neymour, former oil

executive, knows what happens
next. I call upon Mr Neymour,
Mr Basden and the oil compa-
nies for'a factual explanation to
this madness.

I note from The Tribune
Business Section this morning
(October 21, 2008) that Shell
gas has decreased to $4.60 per
gallon. The reality on the

ground is that Shell Harrold
Road and Thompson Blvd sta-’

tions said that “there had to be
a mistake”. They are still pump-
ing gas at $5.36 per gallon.

Please don’t say that the $4.36
reflected the price of the “load”

in the tanker. That would be a _

lie!”

Is the system being manipu-
» lated?

The average gas price for
New Providence in January
2008 was $4.65 per gallon. The
average gas price for the US
(different suppliers) was

approximately $3.00 per gallon. .

A difference of $1.65 per gal-
lon. The average gas price for
New Rrovidence October 2008






Ca ele

letters@tribunemedia.net

approximately $5. 35/per gallon
(this is estimated — waiting on
info from Freeport and “move-
ment”). The average gas price
for the US October 2008
$2.91/per gallon. A difference
of approximately $2.44 per gal-
lon. Please note that today is
the 21st October, 2008 and our
gas price has not been officially

averaged for the months of Sep-
‘tember and October.

The “lag” should never occur
from island to island. Howev-
er, this is what is happening as I
write this letter. This problem
never occurred in the 1980’s.
Why is it happening in 2008?

Shell, Esso Texaco, Focal,
and BEC which one of you
would be the first to speak the
truth to the Bahamian con-
sumers — the people that keep
your establishment doors open.

To all Bahamian citizens and
residents, please see graphs and

A dusting down for

Water Corp bosses

EDITOR, The Tribune.

IT appeared to be good news
that Water & Sewer Corp are
laying new plastic water mains.
The working level contractors
and employees on the project
have been very co-operative

_and helpful in efforts to incon-

venience the public as little. as
possible in their tasks.






Nassau now has a new
Consignment Shop for

“| bargain hunters looking

for quality items at
reasonable prices.

We sell pre-owned,
AS NEW, Ladies
and children’s
clothing and acces-
sories. Come in
and check out our
new store on
Shirley Street East

“~(opposite Thompson Trading).

‘Got some AS NEW clothing items that
youve hardly worn just taking up
space in your closet? Callus for an
appointment to bring them in and we'll
sell them for you!

Call today on 393-4783 or 454-8733.
See you soon !!

Unfortunately somewhere at
the management, supervisory

or engineering level we have

had a sad performance gap that
has-cost residents thousands of
man hours of added clean-up
work and has been destructive
to the plant life and to general
tourist image of this island.
Simply arranging to-have a
large water tanker with sprin-
kler system that could have fol-
lowed closely behind the trench-

. ing machinery would have pre-
-vented almost all of the dust

generated. There was very little
dust from the trencher itself

. because the sub soil was suffi-

ciently damp briefly. However
as soon as backfilling com-
menced, the passing auto traffic
stirred huge dust clouds that
blighted the entire area and

continued for several days. Per-

sons driving from the extreme

‘east end must have suffered

through a dust storm going to
and from their work places for
several weeks.

If Water & Sewer couldn’t

‘otherwise acquire, rent, lease

or contract for a water tanker’s
services then it would have been
a great time for the Fire Depart-
ment to exercise and drill their
personnel by hosing down the
roadway.
The cost of providing reason-

‘able dust control would proba-

bly have cost the economy a few
thousand dollars. A pittance
compared to the value of thou-
sands of man hours of residents
cleaning up the mess left by
Water & Sewer Corp. |

A DISAPPOINTED
EASTERN
RESIDENT ©

October 10, 2008..

End the blame
same right now

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I apologise for writing to you
again so soon after my last let-
ter. However there have been a
number of articles in the news-
papers recently on the “blame
game” where the FNM and the
PLP blame each other for the
economic mess we are in today.
I would like to say enough is
enough.

We all know we are in a mess

- and I am sure most people do

not care who was responsible
at this time. This will be decided

at the next election. What we

want is for the mess to be sorted
out so that we can get on with
our lives in peace and prosper-
ity!

Therefore it would be helpful
if the political class pulled what-
ever brain power they have and
“together” sort out our prob-
lems. I am sure there are good
thinkers in all the political par-
ties and we need them to con-
centrate on a resolution of the
problems and not waste time
and resources on ‘blaming”

each other. And if they do not
have the brains to help they
should keep quiet. I read a
headline today which said: “PM
is accused of making unflatter-
ing comments on. public ser-

. vants performance”.

Anyone who has dealt with
public servants will I am sure
agree with the PM’s comments,
and the bad eggs overshadow
the good eggs and there are’
many on both sides. Can we for-
get about re-election, please,
and put your minds together to
get the people who are now on
two-day weeks and cannot pay
their food bills and. electricity
bills back to work.

While on the subject of elec-
tricity bills, perhaps that is one
place to start the “thinking”
process. Why do we have to pay
rates per kw that appear to be
at least double other countries?
Can someone explain in simple
terms, what is wrong with BEC?

Murder accused

A man who was recently granted bail on a
murder charge will now remain behind bars after

By LLONELLA GILBERT
Bahamas Information Services

MINISTER of State for Finance and
the Public Service Zhivargo Laing urged

human resource managers and officers in -

the civil service to come up with an

action plan to revolutionise and trans-

form how they do their business.
Minister Laing issued the challenge

on Thursday during a workshop.

designed to,improve the delivery of
human resources to facilitate first-class
service in Partnership with stakehold-
ers.

The Department of Public Service set

_up the workshop for human resource
personnel with four goals:

e Strengthening their potential for
intuitive thinking, creativity and inno-

vation to enhance their human resource
management skills.

* Identifying human resource chal-
lenges in the public service.

» Exploring best practices in human
resources to improve the delivery of ser-
vices.

~e Analysing and developing partici-
pants’ institutional capacity to improve

the efficiency of the public service ©
through information technology and -

quality service to its internal and external
customers.

Minister Laing said there are thou-
sands of people who have a positive
experience being served by public ser-
vants, but there are many who do not.

“Tam also fully aware,” he said, “that
there are thousands more Bahamians

whose interaction with the service leaves
them with a sense that these people do
not understand they wotk for us, we do
not work for them.”

Government human resource personnel BR

Ingraham is very serious about bring-
ing changes to the public service to
increase customer satisfaction and effi-
ciency.

The prime minister has charged the
Minister of State for Finance with
responsibility of improving the public
service, and the workshop for the human

- resource professionals is one step in

bringing that goal to fruition.

Mr Laing said the government intends
to implement changes that should result
in improvements in how human resource
departments are run. For example, he
said the Annual Confidential Report
(ACR), which is the name given to the
appraisal forms for civil servants, will be
made simpler and more user friendly.

“Additionally,” Mr Laing said, “we
have to get results in terms of turning
those ACRs around more quickly. It
cannot be that people go three or five
years without getting an appraisal done

~ and then somebody attempts to give me

an appraisal of somebody for five years
running.

You cannot convince me that you = |,
‘can remember anybody’s performance
from five years ago. They need to be -

timely.”

Minister Laing also challenged the
human resources pérsonnel to remem-
ber they work with human beings and as
such, they should treat employees as

they themselves would want to be treat- .

ed.

"He said they should have more com-
munication with staff, keeping them
informed as to their potential to move
up in the service.

Mr Laing cicueated that this might
create less frustration among civil ser-

_ vants who feel they are not progressing

Earlier this month, officers
from the Tourism Police Unit
towed a number of cars from

Angry bystanders contacted
The Tribune to ask why the MP
was getting special treatment.

The Tourism Police Unit
failed to offer any coherent:

the law would not allow them to

However, The Tribune could
find no record of such a regula-

Dean.

~ It was Ms Dean who, in April
of this year, first alleged that
the officer who is claimed to
have shot her brother was still
working, despite Commissioner
Reginald Ferguson’s April,
2008, suggestion that he had
been suspended.

Mr Ferguson dismissed her
claim as a “rumour” at the time,
saying the officer would remain
suspended on half-pay until a
conclusion on the matter is
reached in the coroner’s court.

When this newspaper con-
tacted the stations to which Ms
Dean said the officer and two
other Andros colleagues
involved in'the incident had

_ been transferred and asked for
them by name, officers con-
firmed that men by those names
work there.

The fact that the officer still
appears to be working while no
conclusion has yet been reached
in the case attracted the atten-
tion of human rights organisa-

‘tion Amnesty International.

The organisation previously
highlighted Kenneth’s death in
their 2008 “State of the World’s
Human Rights” report released
earlier this year.

Police recommended there
should be an inquest into the
matter in November last year.

‘Kenneth’s mother, 52-year-
old Alma Russell, said: “I’ve
just been hoping that they
would say or do something...but
there’s been nothing.”

Her son’s death on Septem-
ber 2, 2007, sparked outage in
Andros.

_ He had been at the Club
Cabana bar in Lowe Sound with

some friends when they were ©

approached by officers from the
mobile patrol unit on the island.

Police claimed there was a
“confrontation” between the
friends and police before Ken-
neth was shot at close range,
but other witnesses disputed
this version of events.

Ms Russell now looks after
her grandson, a year-old tod-
dler who was born shortly after
Kenneth died. :

’ The. grandmother said she
was “so amazed” when she
heard her grandson call out for
his father recently, despite being
too young to have met him
before he died.

Montreal, included multiple

agent was given a $10,000
cash down payment, court

documents say.

The last meeting was Octo-
ber 15 ata restaurant at
Logan Airport in Boston:
where Djokich allegedly met
with the undercover agent to
finalize the details of the
killing, which was to take
place in Florida.

The agent allegedly asked
Djokich, the only suspect
present, to clarify that he
wanted the target killed.

In the affidavit, dated last
Friday, Immigration and Cus-
toms. Enforcement Special
Agent Derek Dunn says he
first became aware of the
case in July when a confi-
dential informant was

‘approached in Montreal on
behalf of two men who
turned out to be Djokich and
Deangelis.

The affidavit says Djokich
‘and other investors believed
they had been defrauded in

country was vulnerable to

Goodell says ‘Pacman’ could play in NFL again

NEW YORK (AP) — Roger
Goddell is leaving open the pos-
sibility that suspended corner-
back Adam “Pacman” Jones
could play again in the NFL,
but made it clear the oft-trou-
bled player must first work
through his off-field issues.

The commissioner said on
ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike in

the Morning show that he’s ,

grown weary of the trouble
caused by Jones, who checked
into an alcohol treatment facil-
ity after his latest suspension
for violating the league’s per-
sonal conduct policy.

“I’ve been consistent on this
one.

“He has to recognise his
responsibility to play in the
NFL,” Goodell said from Lon-

“don, where the San Diego

Chargers and New Orleans .

Saints are preparing to play
Sunday. —

“He has not made good deci-
sions,” Goodell added. “I think
after this latest incident it was

clear to me there was something.

else going on that we need to
evaluate and we need to address
directly.”

Only six weeks after being
reinstated from a 17-month sus-
pension because of repeated
legal problems, Jones ran into
trouble again when he was
involved in an alcohol-related
scuffle October 7 with one of
his bodyguards at a private par-
ty in Dallas.

The Cowboys had employed
the bodyguards to try to keep
Jones out of trouble.

Team owner Jerry Jones said
Monday that his latest reclama-
tion project had entered an

alcohol treatment facility “in
another part of the country”

and that it was done entirely |

through and by the NFL. |

The league declined to com-
ment, but has said Jones’ rein-
statement will depend on strict
compliance with treatment

plans and an evaluation by .

“clinical experts.” .

Goodell plans to determine
the full length of the suspension
after the Cowboys play Novem-
ber 16 at Washington.

He has said a lifetime ban

remains a possibility.

“Tf he can deal with whatever
issues he may have, handle his
responsibilities, make good
decisions, then he may have an
opportunity to play again in the
league,” Goodell said.

“Tm frankly tired of talking
about it right now.’

Redskins’ Rogers matures
into top-notch cornerback

@ By JOSEPH WHITE
AP Sports Writer

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) —

- Carlos Rogers seemed destined
to become one of those high
first-round draft picks who nev-



er quite lived up to his poten-

tial.
. He was developing into a ser-

viceable starting cornerback, |

relying on his raw talent with-
out taking the game as seriously
as he should. Surely the Wash-
ington Redskins weren’t getting
full value for a player chosen
with the ninth overall selection
in the 2005 draft.

-“As a rookie, you come in,
“you got a little money,” Rogers
Said. “You want to ‘go out and
do things.”

That’s out on the town — not
out on the field. Rogers didn’t
study video or take care of his

» body like a true pro. He became

known for dropping potential
. interceptions and little else. It
was easy to tell by his body lan-
guage that he was coasting
through the NFL life.
.» _- This year, it is almost as if
there is a new Carlos Rogers

wearing No. 22. He’s still smil- -

ing, but it’s a smile brimming
with confidence knowing that

he’s finally figured things out..

For the first time in his career,

he is playing like a top corner-.

back, shutting down the Oppo:
nents’ top receivers. ~
Rogers is tied for second in

_ the league in deflected passes
with 11 and has yet to be beaten

for a touchdown this season.
He’s a key reason the Redskins
are off to a 5-2 start with a
defense ranked sixth in the NFL.
“He started to focus,” defensive

coordinator Greg Blache said.

“He started to concentrate on
the detail of the game, and that’s
one of the big parts of becoming
a professional. ... All of a sudden,
all the wires connected. All the

“pieces fit. All of a sudden, the
light came on, *Hey, ’ma big-

time corner.’

“He’s always been fearless,
but now he’s got this knowledge
and this confidence to go along

. with his courage and that natur-

al athletic ability to become a
big-time player.”

Over the last three games,
Rogers has corralled three
standout receivers: DeSean
Jackson of the Philadelphia

Eagles, Torry Holt of the St.
Louis Rams and Braylon
Edwards of the Cleveland

_Browns.

Edwards, held to four catches
for 58 yards, said he was frus-
trated virtually the entire game
while facing Rogers in the Red-
skins’ 14-11 victory. His play has
made the nagging injuries to vet-
eran cornerback Shawn Springs,
who has already missed three
games this season, more bear-
able.

“Last year, he was sort of like
a puppy out there, smiling and
laughing,” Blache said. “But
(now) when he walks into the
meeting room, there’s a cold-

- ness, almost:a hitman kind of

thing: "This is what [I’ve got to
learn. This what I’ve got to do.’
His preparauion is totally differ-
ent.”

shower immediately after mid-
week practices so that he could
beat a path out the door once
the fina meetings were over.
Now he’ll spend time in the ice
tub instead — he hates it, but
it’s -good for the muscles — and
will stay later to watch video to

0-7 Bengals going

flashback game

@ By JOE KAY
AP Sports Writer

CINCINNATI (AP) — Dick
LeBeau. predicted a win, Chad
Johnson went ahead and guar-
anteed it. Remarkably, both
turned out to be right.

The last time the Cincinnati

’ Bengals went to Houston, they

were 0-7 and awfully chatty for
a winless team. Even the odds-
makers expected them to lose

_ that 2002 game against the Tex-

ans, an expansion team that had

never before been favored.
-Cincinnati 38, Houston 3.

The losing streak was over —

- for one week. -

As they get ready to head
back to Houston this weekend,
the Bengals have the same
record but few parallels with
that team of six years ago.
LeBeau is the defensive coor-
dinator in Pittsburgh. Johnson
has changed his last name to
Ocho Cinco. And there’s a

whole lot less hubris this time .

around.

“There’s really no room to
talk trash,” Ocho Cinco said.

That ’02 Bengals bunch had
notrouble, |

LeBeau was in the final year
of his contract. During mini-

‘camp that year, he donned a

Superman shirt and ran through

~a banner that said, “Bengals

Super Bowl 2002.” When the
team fell to 0-7 with a'30-24 loss
to Tennessee, LeBeau got emo-
tional after the game.

“We had every opportunity

‘to win, and next week we will

win,” he said, his voice rising
for emphasis.

Told of his coach’s predic-
tion, Johnson went one ae fur-
ther.

“Next week, I assure you a
win,” he said. “I guarantee you
we will win.”

It was the first time the sec;
ond-year receiver went out on a
limb that way. He backed it up

‘by catching one of Jon Kitna’s

four touchdown passes against
the Texans, who were 2-5 head-
ing into the game and had the
Bengals’ inflammatory quotes
posted on their bulletin boards
for inspiration.

Afterward, LeBeau played
down how his prediction had

* come true.

“I didn’t know my powers of
clairvoyance were so omnipo-
tent,” he said. “I just wanted

them (the Bengals) to know I

‘was proud of them and I

believed that.”

He was done predicting, and
the Bengals were done winning.
They lost their next.six games
before winning another, and
finished the season a franchise-
worst 2-14. LeBeau was fired

and Marvin Lewis was brought .

in as head coach.

Only four players remain
from the 2002 team: Ocho Cin-
co, receiver T.J. Housh-
mandzadeh, left tackle Levi
Jones and long-snapper Brad
St. Louis. Ocho Cinco had for-
gotten about his guarantee until
he was reminded this week.
Houshmandzadeh
remember too much about the
game, either. —

“What’s funny i is I did play
that game,” said Housh-
mandzadeh, who had three
catches. “I played that. game
and I never thought I was going
to play that game. Let’s just say
I went to-bed that night at 4

o’clock in the morning. I went:
to bed late because I didn’t °

think Id play.”

Just like in 2002, the Bengals
are heading to Houston as an
underdog. The Texans are 2-4,
coming off wins over Miami
and winless Detroit. They’ve
never won three in a row in
their brief history. They were
a 10 1/2-point favorite at the
start of the week.

The Bengals? A loss on Sun-
day would drop them to 0-8 for
the fifth time in franchise his-
tory. Their worst start was 0-10
in 1993 under Dave Shula.
They’ve also started. 0-8 three
other times: 1978, 1991 and
1994.

Cincinnati is coming off a 38-
10 loss to Pittsburgh, their most
lopsided defeat of the season.
Although there’s been,no pre-
dicting and no guaranteeing,
there was a sense of optimism
that good things could happen
again in Houston.

“T honestly think we re going
to win every game,” Housh-
mandzadeh said. “Last week I
was like, "Man, Pittsburgh is 4-
1, but going into the game I
thought we were going to beat
them. That didn’t happen. But I
think the same thing this week:
We’re going to win.

“Eventually we’re going to
win, and hopefully it’s sooner
rather than later.”

Goorlell: Ad
revenues
dropping for

NAL games

lm By MATTIAS KAREN

AP Sports Writer .

LONDON (AP) — Broad-
casters are already seeing a drop
in advertising revenue for NFL
games because of the global
‘economic crisis, league com-
missioner Roger Goodell said
: Friday. -

At a.conference on the slob-
alization of sports held ahead.
of Sunday’s NFL game in Lon-
don, Goodell also reiterated
that the league will face chal-
lenges in the current economic
climate, but that the NFL is

. “incredibly strong” and should

weather the downturn yogic

ly unscathed.
However, he said senor

partners are already reporting

that advertisers are pulling

back, both on a local and
national level. -
- “The sales market is differ-
ent than it was even several
weeks ago,” Goodell said dur-
ing a panel discussion with
Richard Scudamore, the chief
executive of the English Pre-
mier League. “We see it pri- |
marily on a local level, which I
think is through a large extent a
reflection of what is happening
-in the automobile industry. But
it has now in the receni weeks
gone to the national level. It’s
had an impact. The fortunate
thing is that it hasn’t had an ©
impact on our viewership.”
Goodell did not give any spe-
cific figures for the advertising
drop, and was not available for
media interviews after the dis-
cussion, which was moderated
by CBS announcer Jim Nantz.
Goodell said he was confi-

" dent that ad sales for the games

would stabilize even in the short
term, adding that holding onto
sponsors would be a bigger
long-term problem for the
league.

“That’s something we are
evaluating, whether there will
be a long-term change in the
way companies invest in spon-
sorships, and how they do that,”
he said. “And that could impact
us well beyond 2009.”

But even with all profession-
al sports already feeling the
squeeze of the credit crunch,
. Goodell was confident that the

, NEL’s products should stay in
high demand.

“It’s hard to see that people
are going to give up quality i ina -
time like this,” he said, “I think
we are the ones who have the
potential to come through it the
strongest if we’re intelligent
about it.”

The NFL is staging its second
game at: Wembley on Sunday,
when the New Orleans Saints
face the San Diego Chargers.
The game is a way for the NFL
to continue its growth abroad.
The NBA and NHL have also
staged games in Europe over
the last two years.

But with the Premier League
already established as one of
the most popular in the world,
Scudamore said he didn’t feel
threatened that American
sports would take away revenue
from football.

“J don’t see really that we’re
competing,” Scudamore said. “I
think it’s an awfully big pond
out there that we all fish in.”

Ferguson not surprised 2
Beckham’s proposed move

MANCHESTER, England
(AP) — Alex Ferguson isn’t
surprised that David Beckham
could return to European soc-
cer on a loan deal because he
believes the former England
captain is used to a higher stan-
dard than is played in Major

‘League Soccer.

“Tt is hardly a surprise,” said
the Manchester United manag-
er, who sold Beckham to Real

Madrid five years ago. “Going:

to the United States does not
get you the kind of football he is
used to. It is not the right level
of football, therefore coming
back into the mainstream of the
game is.not.a surprise.”
Beckham could move to AC
Milan from the Los Angeles
Galaxy in January, although the
MLS team wants him back
before its season starts in

March. There is speculation,
however, that Milan may'try.
and turn the loan deal into a-:

full transfer.
Beckham has played for the

Galaxy for two seasons and the

team has failed each time to
reach the playoffs.

With the MLS season com-
ing to an end, Beckham needs

to continue playing competitive

soccer or he will lose his place in
the England squad.

England coach Fabio Capel-
lo, who used to be at Milan, sent

- Beckham on as a late substitute

in the team’s four World Cup
analiyne victories and is

adamant that he will only select
players who are in competitive

action. . |

Real :Madrid president
Roman Calderon, who sold
Beckham to the Galaxy in 2007,
said Beckham can still be influ-
ential. -

“He is a player who can give

Calderon said in yn endon.

P easley arrives in Miami
to give Wade an assist

@ By TIM REYNOLDS
AP. Sports Writer

MIAMI (AP) — Michael
Beasley looked over the
defense, saw Dwyane Wade was
open and set the 2006 NBA
finals MVP up perfectly for an
easy score.

It was only a preseason game,

. but the moment may have been
a harbinger of what awaits the
Miami Heat.

A year ago, as.they stumbled
to the NBA’s. worst record,
Wade and the Heat desperately
needed an assist. They hope it’s
arrived in someone who has
gotten more tattoos than birth-
day cakes, an overgrown
teenager who still claims to

watch Sponge Bob Square .

Pants and whose store of choice
is Target because he can buy
video games, Hot Pockets and a
flat-screen TV at the same time.

“How can you beat that? You
cannot beat that,” he marvels.

Beasley is a quirky-19-year-
old, for sure.

But he can play — and Wade
is thrilled to have him.

“Michael can flat-out do it
all,” Wade said. “He’s one of »

those players who does things in
practice you've never seen. His

_ athleticism, his skill level, it’s’
just there. He’ll be able to come. .

in and play right away.”

That’s exactly what the Heat
thought when they spent the
No. 2 pick in this year’s draft
on Beasley, whose numbers

from his lone season at Kansas’

State were scintillating: 26.2

points, 12.4 rebounds, 54 per- |

cent shooting. He scores with
either hand, from inside or out,
with that uncanny ability to beat

defenders in just about any

situation. E
He is certainly a huge piece of
the rebuilding puzzle for Miami,
which underwent an offseason
‘dominated by. change.

a lot of teams more stacked

than us, better than\us on
paper,” Wade said. “But we
have got to use what we have to
get over the hump, come out
early on and find a way to stay
above water.”
‘Beasley could make the dif-
ference in that quest.

“T will not care what my num-

’ bers are,” Beasley said. “As

long. as we’re winning, I will be
fine. If we’re not, I won’t be.”
He wouldn’t have been fine
last-year. In high school and col-
lege-— combined — Beasley’s
teams lost a total of 17 games.
At one point last season, the
Heat lost 15 in a row. It’s hard
to envision a team with Wade,

Beasley and Marion enduring |

a slump like that. “I’m not going
to be the go-to guy,” Beasley
said, “I’m still trying to find my

place. But I can score.’

That’s not the only thing he’s
known for, though.

Beasley knows he has some

_ maturing to do, but doesn’t hide

his frustration that his prankster

- ways in high school still lend ©

themselves to questions about
his character today. He has a
reputation of being aloof, a bad
teammate, an egotistical play-
er'who oily cares about stats.
All not true, he insists.
“I’m a really nice guy,” he
said. “I don’t know why every-
body thinks that I’m a jerk, that
I have character issues, that I
don’t care about the team, that
I don’t work hard. Honestly, I
don’t know where people get
that from. I love kids. I love see-
ing little kids smile. That makes
me smile. The worst thing I did
was coming up through high
school I wrote on a black car
with a black marker.”
Now, he can doodle on any of
nine cars. That’s how many he

owns. Five years ago, his mom
was driving him around ina»

1989 Nissan Pathfinder. He’s
found a different, path since:
There’s a Mercedes, a Phantom,

a Range Rover and a Bentley in

the driveway of his new home.
Good thing his contract is

worth $20 million over the next -

four years, because he’s already
acquired all those cars, along
with seven televisions (for a Six-
room house), pushed his per-
sonal tattoo collection to 25 (a

collage that includes dollar signs.
on the inside of his right fore-

arm and ’Married to the Game’
on his left shoulder), along with
a wardrobe filled with clothes
that were not purchased at Tar-
get.

‘He’s never been rich like this

before, of course. And at times,
it’s tough to handle, so he asks
for help.

“When you’ve got a good ;
supporting cast, a good group.

of people around you, it’s not
that hard,” Beasley said. “I’ve

got veterans on the team, I’ve
got:Pat Riley, P’'ve got people i
in m wn circle that I can go to
give mé wisdom. So when

you've got that, it’s not that
hard.”

There’s a perception that the
lure of South Beach is too tough

for young athletes in Miami -to«

ignore. Beasley busts that myth.

He can rarely be found near
the beach, and has his own
unique reason why.

“There’s no McDonald’s overs

there,” he said.

International

The IOC worked with a
group called Early Warn-

450 bookmakers and online
gambling sites across the
world.

“The cahalusions show
that no irregular betting on
Olympic competitions were _

games,” IOC spokeswoman

“Emmanuelle Moreau said.

The initiative followed a
series of betting and.match-

cer, cricket and tennis. —

The IOC had been
briefed by former London
police chief Paul Condon,
who has conducted investi-

corruption in cricket. Con-

ANAHEIM, California (AP)
—— Kobe Bryant was held out
of the Lakers’ preseason game

Vhursday night because of
residtial swelling in his right
knee following a collision with
teammate Josh Powell on Tues-
day night against Charlotte.

.“Pve got a little bit of puffi-
ness in the back.of the knee.
It’s just from the trauma of

landing the way I landed,”
Bryant said about an hour
before his teammates faced
Charlotte’ again. “So we’ll just
knock that out and make sure
the swelling’s out of there,
which should ’be.soon. Then ’m
Ok. After seeing the injury on
TV, ?'m surprised it’s not worse,
to be honest.”

Bryant, the NBA’s reigning
MVP, was injured under the
Lakers’ basket in the second
quarter when he went for a
rebound and banged knees with
Powell.

“I feel fine,” Bryant said. “I
lifted weights this morning for
my legs, did lunges, jumps and
all that kind of stuff, and I felt
fine. I felt strong. So I’m all
right. I just want-to get the
swelling out. Instead of playing
on it tonight,and having the
swelling still be there and hav-
ing to manage it. I mean, that’s
stuff you do during the regular
season — not in preseason.’

Bryant hopes to play Friday
night in the preseason finale
against Oklahoma City at
Ontario, California, and coach

_ Inay talk: with Bryant about hav-'

‘

Phil Jackson hasn’t ruled out
that possibility. But Jackson
said if Bryant can’t go, the club

ing some diagnostic tests done
on the knee. The 10-time All-
Star chose not to undergo an
MRI exam.

“If I can run, if I can jump, if
I can do lunges, leg curls and
leg extensions, chances are
there's no structural damage,”
Bryant said, grinning. “You
know what Tm saying? If I

don’t have to walk with more —

ofa bop that I normally walk
with, it’s fine. So I’m good.
There’ s no need to waste their
money.”

Lakers guard Sasha Vujacic,

‘who has yet to play in the pre-

season because of an avulsion

fracture in his left‘ankle, wants ©
to get some minutes in the pre- °

season finale. He was examined
by a foot specialist Thursday.

“It feels better,” said Vujacic,
who signed a three-year, $15
million contract on July 28.
“There’s no sharp pain, but it’s
still a little bit irritated. I just
have to face it and play with it.
Tomorrow I’m going to do the
full practice and then we go
from there. I’m going to be
there and I’m going to be in uni-
form, which I’m excited about.
But if the coach doesn’t play
me, that’s not my decision.
We'll see.”

Powell missed the game
Thursday because of a strained
left hamstring.

A COCKTAIL reception celebrating the merger
of Credit Agricole Suisse Bank & Trust (Bahamas)
Ltd, formerly National Bank of Canada (Interna-
tional) Ltd, and Credit Agricole Suisse (Bahamas)
Ltd,

Credit Agricole Suisse SA Switzerland inaugurat-
ed Bahamas branch on October 14 at a reception in
the foyer of the Goodman’s Bay Corporate Centre
on West Bay Street.

Mr Christophe Gancel, Chief Executive Officer of
Credit Agricole Suisse SA Switzerland, said the bank
believes in the Bahamas and wants to add to the
country’s success and its future.

“We are confident in our mutual achievement
because we share mutual values: Quality, commit-
ment, creativity and, last but not least, hope and con-
fident in the future,” Mr Gancell said.

The Credit Agricole Group, the third largest for-
eign private bank in Switzerland with branches in 20
countries, was founded more than 100 years ago and
is today one of the biggest banks in the world in
terms of share holder equity.

“We have been able to reach this position thanks
to hard work, tenacity and client respect,” Mr Gan-
cel said. He also called for “optimism” in the face of
the international financial crisis.

“This is certainly the biggest crisis of the century
but we have to be optimistic because a crisis always
ends one day ‘and because our group is one of the
strongest and safest in the world

“So this crisis might be for us an opportunity to
stick together, to develop our core business, especial-
ly in your splendid country,” Mr Gancel said.
