ANNOY

Family and -
lawyer say
details.of
investigation
have not.
been turned
over to AG

= By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE family and lawyer of a
_ man shot by a police officer in
Andros on September 2, 2007,
claim the file holding details of
the police investigation has gone
missing.

Kenneth Russell was shot at
close range while at a bar in
Lowe Sound, Andros, after an
alleged confrontation with offi-
cers from a mobile patrol unit.

Now, more than a year later, a
coroner’s inquest has yet to be
opened, according to lawyer
Mario Gray.

“It has not been classified as a
murder as yet,” said Mr Gray.
“That is the whole purpose of
the coroner’s inquest: to see if
there is any criminal liability.

“Recently, the file has seemed
to disappear, and I say disap-
pear because the Attorney Gen-

eral’s Office is now saying that .

they don’t have any record of
the file being turned over.’
Mr Gray,’as well as Kenneth’s

mother Alma Russell, said they

were notified by police that the
investigation had been com-
pleted.

The next step would have
been for the file to be given to
the Attorney General’s Office.
However, when the family and
Mr Gray contacted the office,
they were told that the file was
not there. €

“There may be persons”

involved in the system who do
not want to see justice brought
to a head,” said Mr Gray.

- He said he was assured by
then Police Commissioner Paul
Farquharson that the investiga-
tion would be completed and
then handed over to the AG’s
office. ‘

“When justice is thwarted by
those individuals who do not
wish to see justice happen, sure-
ly there must be a rise and a call
from those of us who are able'to
speak on behalf of those waiting
to see justice done,” said Mr

Reports of mini-nuclear
reactor talks are denied

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

BOTH GOVERNMENT and the
Bahamas Electricity Corporation have
denied reports of talks with an American
company about the feasibility of
installing a mini-nuclear reactor to pro-
vide cheap energy in this country.

Despite comments made by New Mex-
ico, USA based Hyperion Power Gen-
eration’s chief executive officer, John
Deal, who appeared in the international
news media suggesting that his company
is discussing bringing the technology to
this country, the government and BEC
claim no knowledge of any such thing.

The report appeared in science maga-
zines, The Times and The Guardian cf
London, and US based news reports.

Energy

In an interview with The Tribune yes-
terday, John Deal said his company
began talks with the Bahamas about the
feasibility of introducing nuclear power
to this country “six months ago”
around the time that BEC began solicit-
ing bids from alternative energy compa-

: nies to provide a diversified energy mix

for this country.

The “septic tank-sized” nuclear reactor
has been hailed internationally as a nov-
el new means of generating power in an

watt fuel sur-
charge Bahamians were paying in
August of this year, when many con-
sumers were disconnected, or had their
disposable income slashed drastically.

The Bahamian government and BEC
committed themselves this year to reduc-
ing the country’s dependence on costly
and dirty oil, bought in from abroad.

Minister of the Environment Earl
Deveaux has previously emphasised the
potential of solar, wind, wave or ocean
thermal power in the Bahamas as avail-
able sources of renewable energy upon
which this country could rely instead of
depending on oil for 99 per cent of our
power.

Yestetday, both Mr Deveaux and
BEC boss Kevin Basden said they were

not aware of any talks with Hyperion. Mr



Basden said BEC
is not presently
considering
nuclear power as
a generation
option, while Mr
Deveaux noted
that at present the

) essary regulatory

i deal with the

nuclear power.
Nuclear ‘power

Hyperion’s plan would see the esti-
mated $25 million septic tank-sized pow-
er module buried beneath the earth, and
run by operators from the local utility
company.

The energy is around five to 10 times

cheaper to produce than solar or wind -

Mr Deal said it is also safe because it
has no moving parts and if it heats up
beyond a certain point it automatically
shuts down, unlike the reactor which

POLICE this week: seized
$8,000 worth of marijuana and a
large number of illegal ammu-
nition in South Andros.

South Andros police, assisted

‘by officers of the Drug Enforce-

ment Unit (DEU), were in the
settlement of Mangrove Cay on
Tuesday, acting ona tip from a

= member of the public, when

they saw two men in a dark Nis-
san Maxima at around 5.30pm.

Upon seeing the officers, the
passenger got out of the car and

fled the area. The driver then ~

hindered by the officers.

He then got out of the vehicle
and ran, dropping a clear plastic
bag in.a bushy area.

Examining the ‘package, the
officers found eight pounds of

. Marijuana, A 40-year-old man

was taken in for questioning in
connection with this matter.

A day after the incident,
South Andros police and DEU
officers carried out a search of a
home in the settlement of High
Rock,

’ Hidden behind: a wooden

fence on the pLeperty, officers

found a large tube container.
Inside the container were a

Ruger sub-machine gun, 20 live
rounds of hollow tip ammuni- .
‘tion, live rounds of .40 ammu-

nition, 50 live rounds of .22°

ammunition, 5 live rounds of
.223 ammunition, nine shotgun ,
shells, and four potted marijua-
na plants ranging in height
between eight and 10 inches.
Two men, aged 44 and 32,
from the High Rock communi-
ty were taken in for questioning
in connection with the discovery

nuclear disaster in the former Soviet
Union.

“As far as communities such as the
Bahamas are. concerned, you’d be hard
pressed to come up with something that
was as safe, period,” he said. -

“We’ve got probably a five year back-
log (on orders) and we’re not even out to
market yet. It’s just incredible. The
response has been really high,” said Mr
Deal.

Countries including Panama, the Cay-
man Islands and remote communities in
the US are among those. who have
expressed an interest. Firm orders have
been placed by a number of African
countries as well as the Czech Republic,
said Mr Deal.

He claimed talks in the Bahamas have

’ focused around issues such as what

licensing requirements exist, as well as
what demand.

“The Bahamas definitely meets all of
our criteria. Need drives a lot of things,
and I definitely think there’s an oppor-
tunity there for us to help out the

- Bahamas,” said Mr Deal.

He said that prior to signing a deal
with any country, Hyperion is committed
to consulting with the community and
educating them. about the proposal.

“We want to involve the community
from the get-go. We’re not going any
place where people don’t want us,” he
said.

The lame-duck economy

EVERYONE’S talking about a new
New Deal, for obyious reasons. In 2008,
as in 1932, a long era of Republican polit-
ical dominance came to an‘end in the face
of an economic and financial crisis that, in
voters’ minds, both discredited the GOP’s

free-market ideology and undermined its’

claims of competence.

And for those on the progressive side of
the political spectrum, these are hopeful
times.

There is, however, another and more
disturbing parallel between 2008 and 1932
— namely, the emergence of a power vac-
uum at the height of the crisis.

The interregnum of 1932-1933, the long —

stretch between the election and the actu-
al transfer of power, was disastrous for the
US. economy, at least in part because the
outgoing administration had no credibility,
the incoming administration had no author-
ity and the ideological chasm between the
two sides was too great to allow concerted
action. And the same thing’is happening
now. .

It’s true that the interregnum will be
shorter this time: FDR wasn’t inaugurated
until March; Barack Obama will move into

the White House on Jan. 20. But crises

move faster these days.

How much can go wrong ‘in the two
months before Obama takes the oath of
office?

The answer, unfortunately, is: A lot. Con-
sider how much darker the economic pic-
ture has grown since the failure of Lehman
Brothers, which took place just over two
months ago.

And the pace of deterioration seems to
be accelerating.

Most obviously, we’re in the midst of
the worst stock market crash since the
Great Depression: The Standard & Poor’s
500-stock index has now fallen more than
50 per cent from its peak. Other indica-
tors are arguably even more disturbing:
unemployment claims are surging, manu-
facturing production is plunging, interest
rates on corporate bonds —.which reflect
investor fears of default — are soaring,
which will almost surely lead to a sharp
fall in business spending. The prospects
for the economy look much grimmer now

than they did-as little as a week or two °

ago.
Yet economic policy, sates than

responding to the threat, seems to have

gone on vacation.
In particular, panic has returned to the
- credit markets, yet no new rescue plan is in
sight.

On the contrary, Henry Paulson, the
Treasury secretary, has announced’ that he
won’t even go back to Congress for the
second half of the $700 billion already
approved for financial bailouts. And finani-

Large wholesale company is looking fora

- cial aid for the beleaguered auto industry is

being stalled by a political standoff.

How much should we worry about what
looks like two months of policy drift? At
minimum, the next two months will inflict
serious pain on hundreds of thousands of
Americans, who will lose their jobs, their
homes, or both.

What’s really troubling, however, is the
possibility that some of the damage being
done right now will be irreversible. ’'m
concerned, in particular, about the two D’s:
deflation and Detroit.

About deflation: Japan’s “lost decade” in
the 1990s taught economists that it’s very
hard to get the economy moving once

expectations of inflation get too low (it

doesn’t matter whether people literally
expect prices to fall).

Yet there’s clear deflationary pressure
on the U.S. economy right now, and every
month that passes without signs of recovery
increases the odds that we’ll find ourselves
stuck in a Japan-type trap for years.

‘About Detroit: There’s now a real risk
that, in the absence of quick federal aid, the

-Big Three automakers and their network of

suppliers will be forced into liquidation —
that is, forced to shut down, lay off all their
workers and sell off their assets. And if

that happens, it will be very hard to bring |-

them back.
Now, maybe letting the auto companies

die is the right decision, even though an.
auto industry. collapse would be a huge »

blow to an already slumping économy. But
it’s a decision that should be taken care-

fully, with full consideration of the costs

and benefits — not a decision taken by
default, because of a political standoff
between Democrats who want Paulson to
use some of that $700 billion and a lame-
duck administration that’s trying to force
Congress to divert funds from a fuel-effi-
ciency programme instead.

Is economic policy completely paralyzed
between now and Jan. 20? No, not com-
pletely. Some useful actions are being tak-
en...

For example, Fannie Mae and Freddie
Mac, the lending agencies, have taken the
helpful step of declaring a temporary halt
to foreclosures, while Congress has passed
a badly needed extension of unemploy-
ment benefits now that the White House
has dropped its opposition.

But nothing is happening on the policy
front: that is remotely commensurate with

the scale of the economic crisis. And it’s -

scary. to think how much more can go
wrong before Inauguration Day.

Give us fair and
balanced reporting

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I JUST had to write this morning after again listening to foolish par-
tisan politics this morning during the news on one of the radio stations.
One time ago I enjoyed listening to news on this particular Bahamian
radio station, because-I thought that it was fair and balanced, but
since the departure of the former news director, the news at this station
leaves much to be desired.

This morning a Bahamian attorney was interviewed, no not inter-
viewed, he was allowed to give his position on what happened on
Paradise Island last week. As I listened, I groaned within. I groaned
because, he ran on with foolishness as to why the action should not have

been done the way it was done, he continued in his rhetoric asking -

where is the hotel union president, he further stated that when Prime
Minister Ingraham gave his address last week, he should have advised
the country that these workers were going home; were there foreign
workers sent home and on and on and on, his final question was.to the
legality of the exercise. Throughout this presentation, there was no

- interjection from the other side of the microphone with regard to

world events that could have factored into the painful decision that had
to be made by the management of the resort.

This same station then allowed another statement from a “member
of parliament wanna-be” who leads a political party and who has nev-
er won his own constituency seat. To me this individual has substance
once in a while, but this morning was not one of those times in my opin-
ion.

I sometimes wonder whether these persons listen or research what
is going on in the world. Whether you agreed with, the-Senior Manag-
er or not when he gave his response to the action. that was taken last

week as he was interviewed by a top journalist this past Monday — your
thoughts might have been good, interesting.

What company once they have laid you off provide assistance with

regard to resumé preparation and job interview instructions? Former °

employees take advantage of these opportunities.

It is sad what is going on in the country with regards to lay-offs, unfor-
tunately globally we are facing a recession, and some countries, sur-
prisingly Japan is one of them, are already in recession.

At this time persons who have been laid off and have received
packages should use what they have been given financially wisely,
they should be encouraged to know that this is not the end of the
world. I believe that in every disappointment there is an appoint-
ment.

For some persons you might have always aaated to do something
else, but you were afraid to move in another direction, because you
were so dependent on that particular position you had. ~

Five years ago I was laid off from a job that I thought I would have
retired from. For me my department was advised some six months
before it happened that we might have to close our department. When
it happened, my former employer and I shook hands, and I was on my
way with over 30K in my hands. I started my own business. Not every

day is a good day, not every month is a good month, but I have been -

able to sustain it for five years and I am proud. My former employer
and I have a good relationship and that company supports my company.
I have seen this same model come out of what happened at BTC
years ago. Former employers formed companies and are to this-day still
supported by the mother company.

As Bahamians we have to be more global in our thinking and our
outlook on life. How about going to another country and working. I
have a good friend who has lived overseas in prior years along with his
family. They decided to take the opportunity of his layoff to return to
that European country. He has already. received two job offers —
one from his former employer.

Good for the Bahamas we have excellent regulations in place when
it comes to our financial services and I believe that we will be Okay : as
a people.

Bahamians, let’s help to feed, clothe and generally assist each other
genuinely as a people — we have done it before and we will do it again.

We need to stop this continual partisan hostility in The Bahamas, it
gets us nowhere and stifles our progress.

Reporters and journalists alike need to bring more information to the
Bahamian people when they-are reporting and give us fair and balanced
reporting. As a nation we have grown up and no longer desire milk, but
we are looking for meat on the platter of information you dre serving
us, or we will switch stations from local to regional or nationally and
internationally if we have to.

we can steer ourselves out of this
unprecedented economic dilem-'
ma with minimum fallout.
Obviously the Bahamas like
many other Caribbean nations
does not have the economic lever-
age and posture that America,
China and Japan enjoys. How-
ever neither country started out
as world leaders, their respective
leaders saw the potential of the
countries, got a vision of the
future, sat down with stake hold-
ers of the country and planned
for their individual journeys.
The Hon Hubert A Ingraham;
Prime Minister of The Bahamas,
in a public address to the nation
gave a somewhat pessimistic
report on the state of the econo-
my with very little hope. Howev-
er to the Prime Minister’s credit
he advised Bahamians to be pru-
dent in spending, re-write their
mortgages if necessary and even
promised a provisional unem-
ployment benefit plan to be
implemented. He further advised
Bahamians of payment arrange- .
ments his government had
already implemented with BEC
in.an effort to provide help for
distressed citizens struggling to ~
pay their electricity bill. Addi-
tionally social services would give
financial relief to families that are
without food or other essentials. I
believe these gestures by the gov-
ernment are necessary and com-
mendable; but they are not near-
ly enough. A reasonable subse-
quent question is, “what happens
to these persons that are unable
to pay their electricity bill in the
ensuing months?. When persons
have used up the temporary pro-
visions and the :government is
unable to do more, then what? I

- am reminded of an old adage that

says, “Give a man a fish you have
fed him for a day, teach a man to
fish and you have fed him for a
lifetime,” An empowered people
in a diversified infrastructurally
developed country equals success
without limitation.
What.about an economic tain

_ ulus packet for the Bahamas, Mr

Prime Minister? Mr Ingraham
spoke about capital investments
that are on-line and ready to go.
It’s good that the government will
continue with these projects, how-
ever considering the massive chal-
lenges of unemployment this
country is now-facing, this is
merely a drop in the bucket. The
government needs to do much
more to help maintain stability in
our country. A substantial con-
struction initiative, carefully
planned would undoubtedly play
a major role in the reduction of
domestic violence and criminality,
in our society.

Additionally the’ Bahamas
Development bank, if properly.
structured and managed can part-
nership. with Bahamian enter-
prises to create state of the art.
chicken farms, crop farms, and
fish farms. (The pioneering list of
entrepreneurship is only limited
to the writing space in this arti-

-cle). We need to move towards

feeding ourselves, now is the time
to get serious about the future of
this country. No more third world
banana republic mentality. We
have some of the brightest minds
in the Bahamas....Let us throw
down the measuring stick of
mediocrity and divisive politics
that keeps us bound to a third |
world status, especially in our
government systems. Let’s reach
for a new stick of excellence in
the first world. With all the intel-
lectual human resources we have
in this country; “We can do it.” |

Let’s be clear, deliberate and
direct about our initiatives to
diversify our economy. In order
to achieve this ambitious chal-
lenge, the government of the
Bahamas along with the stake-
holders of this country would
have to develop a very extensive
‘bipartisan plan of stewardship,
unparalleled vision and wisdom
to borrow the necessary amount
of money and a sensible approach
to pay back the money. The
amount needed could very well
be in the billions of dollars; but I
believe the benefit to the country
would far outweigh the burden
of a nationally unprecedented
loan. Such actions would help us
shield ourselves and lessen the
blow of a prevailing American
recession.

Private enterprises and entre-
preneurship would also excel to a
new level due to the tremendous
leverage afforded to them by a
“stimulus packet.” It is time to
take some of the eggs out of that
one “tourism” basket. I know this
is easier said than done; but, “the
road to a thousand miles begins
with the first step”, let’s plan the
journey together and start step-
ping, now! Forward, upwards,
onwards and together.

hundreds to attend
pro-hanging march

ORGANISERS of a pro-hanging march in
Nassau this weekend are expecting hundreds to
turn out in support.

They believe Bahamians are keen to halt
the spread of “gangsterism” in the land - and
put to death those who murder innocent peo-
ple.

“We are expecting hundreds to attend.

“We need to tell the public what needs to be
done,” said Workers Party leader Rodney
Moncur.

“The nation is in crisis. Hundreds of mur-
derers are on the streets, witnesses are being
intimidated and the Attorney General’s Office
seems to be impotent in bringing cases to
court,” he said.

A message needed to be sent to parliament
urging removal of all impediments to the death
penalty being carried out.

Opposition to ‘capital punishment was, he
added, contrary to the teachings of the Bible.
“There is.a meltdown in the adranistraton of






justice and the country is on its way to hell,” he
said.

Today’s march, which starts at 9am at Yellow
Elder Gardens, is aimed at mobilising those
who feel strongly that hanging is the right

response to the high murder rate.

Feelings were running high, said Mr Moncur,
over the level of “murder and mayhem” in the
country.

“People are very upset and paranoid about
it,” he added, “We are bordering on gangster:
ism. It is not God’s will that his children are
murdered and their killers go unpunished. It is
against the Bible.

“Anyone who argues against capital punish-
ment goes against God’s decision that mur:
derers be executed for taking the life of anoth-
er. :
“Any Christian who argues against that is
not righteous.”

A mock gallows with a “hanging man’ ’ will
be on display during the march.

Pro- gambling group claims govt

failed to respond to meeting request

The Ad-Hoc Committee
for Gaming Reform said
both the Gaming Board and
the Ministry of Tourism
failed to respond to requests
for a meeting about the coun-
try’s “restrictive and discrim-
inatory” gaming laws.

The committee has issued
a second direct request for a

meeting to Senator Vincent.

Vanderpool-Wallace, the
minister of tourism.
According to the commit-
tee, the Gaming Board earli-
er agreed to help in the effort

‘to petition the government | ©
’ to formally take steps leading
_ to legislative reform.

The committee said it
therefore expected to have a
date for a meeting with
senior government officials
before now.

In a statement issued yes-
terday, the committee said

the current practice prohibit-

ing Bahamians from gaming
is “unacceptable in the minds
of the majority of Bahami-
ans”, and noted that chair-
man of the Gaming Board,
Malcolm .Adderley, has
openly advocated for a
review of gaming laws.

The ‘Ad-Hoc Gaming ¢
Committee said it is asking’”

appoint:a select committee
to begin the legislative review
process. It said it expects to
enjoy the support of the
Gaming Board in this regard.

Committee chairperson
Sidney Strachan said: “We
know from the public reac-
tion and on-going discussion
that legislative reform is top
of mind with Bahamians.
We'd hoped that the govern-
ment understood this and
attached some urgency to a
meeting.

government has not been

Official opening of Gin Sur
Mer’s south shore inlet

School talent show
held to raise bus funds |

@ By ALEX MISSICK
Tribune Staff Reporter

CENTRAL Andros High School parents, teachers and
students came out in mass numbers yesterday to host a tal-
ent show in an effort to raise money for a badly needed

‘ school bus.
Guests were entertained with singing, dancing, modelling ' :

shows, poetry readings and skits put on by the CAHS fami-
ly. Parents did not leave the exhibitions to the children —

many of them got involved and displayed their own talents. - :

The teachers got involved as well, putting on student uni-
forms and staging an impromptu reenactment of how the
students interact with each other in class.

CAHS principal Maxine Forbes said the school’s goal is
to raise about $15,000 for the bus as well as other funds to
be used in many areas of the school.

“We want the school bus because our kids live in Andros

but they are not really able to explore the island because of |
' the transportation issues,” Mrs Forbes said.

Mrs Forbes said she was amazed that the event went so
smoothly, as they only had three days to put everything
together. |

“T believe in doing your best with what you have. We
were not expecting this amount of people to show up to
support the event,” Mrs Forbes said.

John Goodman, father of one of the children participat-
ing in the talent show, said he feels the event was fabulous
and that the children did very well.

Performances

“I think the show went well based on the performances
of the children in the time the teachers had to work with
them. As a parent we have been back and forth throughout
the week and Mrs Forbes along with the other teachers
really put a lot of work into it,” Mr Goodman said.

Mrs Forbes said she would like to see more of the alumni
of the school coming back to support the students.
~ “We have a lot of Androsians who graduated from
CAHS and they are doing well for themselves. It would be

. Mice to see them come back and have the children see an

Androsian who is doing well,” Mrs Forbes said.
The talent show is not the only event Mrs Forbes said the

school is using to raise funds. CAHS plans to host its third _

annual Diamonds are Forever benefit ball on December 6

- and a grill-out to generate more money. «

“I believe in purpose and so while I am here, I believe
my job is to rebuild and lay the foundation down much

: firmer for the person that comes after me,” Mrs Forbes

said.

FREEPORT - Developer Bobby

_ Ginn last week celebrated the offi-

cial opening of Gin Sur Mer’s south
shore inlet — the gateway to the $4.9
billion mixed-use resort at West
End.

Deputy Prime Minister Brent

Symonette accompanied Mr Ginn
on board the 65ft yacht ‘Grand
Baby’ last Saturday morning for the
first sailing through the inlet, which
leads into the mega-yacht marina
facility.

The boat tour departed from Old
Bahama Bay marina around
10.30am. It was marked with a
champagne toast on board the
‘Grand Baby’, a Ginn spokesper-
son said. /

Mr Symonette was taken on a
tour of the 2,000-acre site, where
development is underway on the
mega-yacht marina, a championship
golf course, and a ‘beach club. He
also toured the canal and ocean-
front lots on the south shore of the
property.

Gin sur Mer and Grand Bahama
Power Company last week signed a
$12-million contract for construc-

tion of new electricity infrastruc-
ture to provide increased load
capacity needed for continued
development at West End.

The mega-yacht marina will be
the largest in the Caribbean region
and is expected to be completed in

January 2010. It will offer six miles

of water frontage and a depth of
15ft at mean low water mark and
18ft at high water mark.

Investment

The Arnold Palmer Signature
golf course is 70 per cent complete

‘and the total investment is estimat-

ed at $36 million. Roads, water and
sewer systems for the first 800 lots
are expected to be completed in
December 2009.

Mr Symonette was very
impressed with the Ginn develop-
ment.

He said that the scope of the pro-
ject is comparable to Dubai.

“Mr Ginn certainly has a dream
in West End with Gin Sur Mer. If
we can see this come to fruition, I
think we will see a great develop-
ment happening in our country,”
he said.

_ Mr Symonette said that Ginn has

assured the government that the
funds are in place for the project,
despite its $600-million loan default
with Credit Suisse.

“In this particular project the.

funding required for future devel-
opment is already in the bank, so
the issue of confidence of whether
or not the funding is there to carry
out the development forward does
not arise.

“We are quite comfortable that
the funds are in place for the next
phase of development and so the
issue with Credit Suisse, as far as
the next phase, is not of concern,”
he said.

Deputy Prime Minister Symon-

ette said he was amazed by the mag-’

nitude of the Ginn project and the
movement of fill at West End,
which is comparable to what : hap-
pening in Dubai.

“We are going to be moving the
equivalent of that mount of fill that
was moved in Dubai,” he explained.

“Another point is that the con-
sumption of electricity by Ginn will
be in the region of one-third of what
Freeport consumes today, so that
gives you the perspective of what
will be happening here,” he said.

The entire development will con-
tain 4,400 condominium and hotel

units centered around an 18 storey
tower resort. It will also feature
2,000 single-family home sites,
including waterfront bungalows
with private boat slips.

Mr Ginn said that his company is

_ continuing negotiations with Cred-

it Suisse concerning its loan default
on $650 million loan.

“We are still negotiating and
there is no change at the moment,”
he told reporters last week.

“T have no idea of when negotia-
tions will end, but it is not affecting
what we are doing here in West
End. We escrowed some money
and so development of the project is
continuing on,” he said.

As far as bankruptcy reports, Mr
Ginn said: “Bankruptcy is a word
that is thrown around very loosely
(today) because everyone is having
financial trouble. But there is no
anticipation of bankruptcy on any-
thing we are doing in the Bahamas,
and the Ginn Company is continu-
ing to move forward on all others
projects, but we are being careful,
cutting costs and adjusting to mar-
ket conditions that exist,” he said.

“We have good properties and
employees and we continue to work’
to weather the storm,” said Mr
Ginn.

REV John Macleod and his family — wife Carol, son Andrew and daugh-
ter Bethany — on Paradise Island bridge.

St Andrew's Preshyterian
Kirk has a new pastor

ST Andrews Presbyterian
Kirk has a new pastor in the per-
son of Rev John Macleod.

Rev Macleod, a native of
Scotland, will be inducted as
pastor on Sunday, November
23, at 3pm.

The reverend was raised on
the island of Harris in the
Hebrides, a group of islands off
the north-west coast of Scot-
land.

He arrived in the Bahamas in
August of this year to replace
his predecessor Rev Alastair
Grey.

Prior to Rev Macleod com-
ing, the church had several inter-
im ministers.

“This is an important period
for the Kirk,” said Rev

Macleod, as the church is in the -

process of becoming separate
from the Church of Scotland. .
The Church of Scotland has
always maintained that its inter-
national congregations should
become indigenous churches
and that is very much a part of
what is happening in St
Andrews. It is hoped that the

‘congregation will be shaped as.»

much by its Bahamian present
and future as it was by its Scot-
-tish past.



& “This: amy. hope. to see the.
church become a’strong con- .-

“gregation’ of worshippers who
will serve God and the Bahamas

‘through the power of the.

. Gospel of Jesus Christ,” said
‘Rev Macleod:

Rev Macleod became a Chris-.

tian in his late teens and after.a
short career in sales, trained for
the Church of Scotland ministry,
a process that took over eight
years. In May 2000, he was
‘ordained as a minister by the
Presbytery of Irvine and Kil-
marnock:and was then inducted

to his first church, the Loudoun

Church of Scotland. in

Newmilns, Ayrshire.

He remained there until he
took up his new position in Nas-
sau at St Andrews, located on
Shirley Street immediately
across from the Central Bank
on the north and Government
House’‘on the west. He is mar-

ried to Carol and the couple -

have two children, son, Andrew,
and daughter, Bethany.
- “Kirk” is the Scots word for
church and in the early 19th cen-
tury the congregation of St
Andrews Presbyterian Kirk was
formed by a group of Scots who
wanted to have their own
church in Nassau.

The first minister arrived in

‘Jate 1809 and the cornerstone .
. of the building was laid in

August 1810. The Kirk has

always been part of the Presby-

terian family in Scotland, having
been supported initially by the
Presbytery of Edinburgh and

- now being under the care of the |
World Mission Council of the
Church of Scotland. The Kirk -

was active in planting churches
and today there are congrega-

tions in Freeport and Abaco .
that have their roots in St

Andrews.
Representation from the

Church of Scotland World Mis-

sion Council, led by Rev Dr Ken
Ross, will conduct the: service
of induction on Sunday, Novem-

ber 23, at the church’s location

in Nassau.

Rev Scott Kirkland of the

Lucaya Presbyterian Kirk will
deliver the sermon. Friends
from the congregations in
Freeport and Abaco as well as
from other churches and
denominations in the Nassau
area Will join in on the historic

-service. All are welcomed to

attend and there will be refresh-
ments served.in the Kirk Hall
following the service.

DRIAN Wildgoose, a 23-
year-old College of the
Bahamas student from
Freeport, is the first prize winner in the
Bahamas International Film Festival’s
(BIFF) “Reel Life” Documentary
Competition that is sponsored by Ans-
bacher Bahamas Ltd and the Bahamas
Telecommunications Company (BTC).
- Leslie Vanderpool, founder and
executive director of BIFF, made the
announcement at a press conference on
Thursday at the British Colonial Hilton
Hotel.

Mr Wildgoose’s 13-minute documen-
tary “HIV/AIDS in the Bahamas:



_ Direct Insight” combined a series of

dramatic acting scenes and revealing
interviews to provide insight into the
reality of HIV/AIDS in the country and
prevailing attitudes towards the dis-
ease. Interview subjects included high
school and college students, a man liv-
ing with HIV and deceased AIDS
activist Wellington Adderley.

“It’s called “Direct Insight” because
you have the perception of AIDS direct-

ly from Bahamians, people who actually

live in the society that are affected by it.

We accomplished our task which was to
actually bring about an awareness of the
impact of AIDS on our culture,” said .

tion'in the competition, Ansbacher

Bahamas Ltd also donated 30 cameras

to youth organisations around the
country.
“The results have been quite inter-
esting and very gratifying,” said. Stew-
art Miller, senior client relationship

“On behalf of Ansbacher Bahamas
Ltd; I’m pleased to congratulate Adri-
an Wildgoose. We are both impressed

ning of your career in film,” Mr Miller

Bush rallies China’s
help on N orth Korea

@ LIMA, Peru

IN A last dash of diplomacy, President George W. Bush-on
Friday sought China’s help in pinning down North Korea to
keep its shaky promises of nuclear disarmament, according to
Associated Press.

Bush and Chinese President Hu Jintao privately tried to push

along a way to verify North Korea’s nuclear declarations —
the latest hang-up in a showdown that has vexed six nations.

The meeting came as Bush began his last scheduled foreign
journey, at a yearly Asia-Pacific forum, where the world’s eco-
nomic collapse and the.North Korea standoff dominated.

Bush even allowed that:he “felt a little nostalgic” over his-final
meeting as.a head of state with Hu, White House press secretary
Dana Perino said. It was some rare reflection from Bush,.a nod
to his ties with the leader of a communist nation that is both
friend and foe.

North Korea has agreed to give up its nuclear weapons in
exchange for coveted aid and diplomatic recognition, a deal
arranged with the U.S., China, Russia, Japan and South Korea.

But it has not fully allowed outside inspectors, and talks have -

repeatedly gone offcourse.

Bush wants to emerge from the Asia-Pacific Economic Coop-
eration forum, also known as APEC, with firm plans for the six
countries to meet in Beijing, perhaps i in early December. The
goal would be to formally agree on the way to verify North
Korea’s nuclear capabilities.

Perino said Bush and Hu discussed that meeting, but no date
has been set.

The president’s other main goal in Peru is to steady the shud-
dering economy by rallying more Pacific Rim nations to shore up
global financial markets. But even that step would soon be
handed to his successor, Democrat Barack Obama, who replaces
Bush in just two months.

The vast economic downturn, rooted first in the United States,
hangs over the meeting. Bush is trumpeting what he calls the key
to a rebound: free markets, trade and people.

“We’re facing a difficult challenge and there will be tough days
ahead,” Bush said in a Saturday radio address released early by
the White House. “But by relying on these principles, we can be
confident in the future of our nation and the world.”

In Bush’s sole public appearance Friday, he was literally gone
in a flash. He shook hands with Hu in a photo opportunity that
lasted under 10 seconds. Neither offered comment.

Privately, the two discussed a familiar range of topics, accord-
ing to the White House: the economic crisis, conflicts of religious
freedom, trouble spots such as Iran and Sudan.

Bush’s pace picks up Saturday in the Peruvian capital of
Lima. He will deliver a pro-trade economic speech, attend meet-

ings of the 21-nation APEC coalition and meet individually |

with the heads of Canada, Russia, Japan and South Korea.
Across the weekend, Bush i is meeting with leaders of the four
other countries involved in ridding North Korea of its nuclear

- weapons program. That effort appeared to get back.on track

when the U.S. removed North Korea from its list of nations
that sponsor terrorism, but North Korea has since balked at

allowing inspectors to take samples from its main nuclear.com- |

plex.

“Our primary goal is to get back to the negotiating table in °

Beijing,” said Dennis Wilder, senior director for Asian affairs at
the National Security Council.

Wilder said the broader aim of the so-called six-party talks is
to leave “a process in place that the next administration can work
with. And I think we will do that.”

On the economy, Bush arrived with a turbulent trail behind
him this week: more startling drops in the stock market only par-

tially made up for by a Wall Street climb on Friday, the highest °

level of unemployment claims in 16 years, and no solution for

~ flailing automakers.

Mr Gray said because we live in a very

In response to the situation,
IMO has been very active
developing alliances with gov-

forging initiatives with other
new agencies, engaging UN

and encouraging and facilitat-

even involving naval forces at

Mr Palameres said the UN

ed positively to their concerns
by adopting solutions which
seek to ensure the protection
of innocent seafarers, includ-

“A small electrical shortage in the

cargo, particularly via ship-

ping lanes through the Gulf

of Aden, which is of strategic
importance to shipping and
trade east and west of the
Suez Canal.

“The international commu-
nity has clearly acknowledged
that not only is the situation

untenable for the shipping -

industry and in particular
innocent seafarers who have
become unwilling pawns, it
has clearly reached the point
at which international trade
and global circulation of cargo
is threatened,” he said.

Mr Palameres pointed out
that another major concern is
the recruitment and retention
of seafarers in the maritime
industry.

He explained that the ‘isk
of being hijacked and held
hostage can act as a deterrent
to seafarer recruitment.

“There is a large shortage
of seafarers in the indus-

try...but, unlike piracy, this
issue does not grab interna-
tional headlines or is seen as
an immediate and acute dan-
ger. Nevertheless, it is just as
real and could in the long term
pose a threat to the viability of
shipping and by extension of
global trade,” he added.

Mr Palameres said last
Monday the IMO secretary
general launched a ‘Go To
Sea’ initiative to raise aware-
ness of the need to boost
recruitment in the shipping
industry:

He commended the
Bahamas for implementing a
maritime cadet corp to recruit
young people in an anc UBETY
of aging seafarers.

“T have had the privilege of
meeting 35 young Bahamian
cadets and this initiative could
not have been more timely
and I commend the govern-
ment of the Bahamas for tag
initiative,” he said.

The officer said the shortage created

a lot of heavy smoke inside the employ-:

Francis said the decision was made to .

temporarily close off the third floor due

to the threat of smoke and chemical

He said the college will first make

Opening lead — four of diamonds.
Part of the secret of Sylvia’s suc-
cess at the club was her uncanny
ability to convert dreadful blunders
into resounding triumphs. Sylvia was
by nature accident-prone, and it was
because of this tendency. that she
often found herself in hot water.
‘One of her greatest victories
occurred on this deal where she got
to five clubs and West led a diamond.
Hoping against hope that West had

losers on' the J-10 of spades and so
made five clubs:

As usual, the story of Sylvia's
newest Alice in Wonderland adven-
ture spread like wildfire among the
members of the club. Only after
extended analysis was: it discovered
that the contract could not have been
made had Sylvia trumped the ace of
diamonds. By discarding the ace of
spades, she had found the only way
to fulfil! the contract.

Tomorrow: Future shock.

THE TRIBUNE



‘Utah Flash —
reduces roster

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

ONE player got cut and another survived as the

Utah Flash reduced its roster from 12 going into
its,only pre-season game this weekend in the Nation-

al Basketball Association’s Developmental League. |

During the D-League’s draft held last Friday,
Utah selected Bennet Davis with the ninth pick in
the third round and Torrington Cox in the seventh
round.

However, on ‘Thursday night, the Flash made its
first cut, as they waived Cox, a 6-foot-7 forward
from King’s College. Two other players were also
cut.

Left on the 12-man roster that will be reduced
to 10 by November 26 is Davis, a 6-9 forward from
Northeastern University. He is a 24-year-old Grand
Bahamian.

When Utah play their first game on November 28,
Davis is hoping that he will be in uniform as he
continues his dream of playing in the NBA.

While they reduced their roster of draftees, Utah
made room for Bill Walker, a guard/forward from
the Boston Celtics. On Thursday, Walker was

_ assigned to Utah, the Celtics’ NBA Development
affiliate.

Walker, 6-6, joins fellow Celtics rookie JR Gid-
dens on the flash roster.

Utah Flash is expected to play tisk only pre-sea-
son game tonight against the Idaho Stampede in
Burley, Idaho.

Bennet was unavailable for comment as the team
was practicing in Orem, Utah, yesterday before they
took the road for their exhibition game.

Efforts to contact Cox, who will now have to look
at other options, including playing in the European
League, proved fruitless up to press time last night.

Davis, however, is hoping that he will remain -

with Utah until he gets the call up to the NBA.

If he makes it, Davis will become only the fifth
Bahamian to do so, joining Mychal ‘Sweet Bells’
Thompson and Rick Fox, who both played and won
titles with the Los Angeles Lakers, Ian ‘Foots’ Lock-
hart, who played one season with the Phoenix Suns
and Dexter Cambridge, who spent a year with the
Dallas Mavericks.

Celtics blow out Pistons

BOSTON (AP) — The Allen Iverson trade
looked good for the Pistons when they handed
the Lakers their first loss of the season and .
snapped Cleveland's eight-game winning streak.

It hasn't helped them against the team they
need to beat most.

Rajon Rondo had 18 points and eight assists,
outplaying the recent Pistons acquisition and
leading the Boston Celtics to a 98-80 victory
over Detroit on Thursday night in a rematch
of last séason's Eastern Conference finals...

Volleyball champions

nlike last year when the two

trophies went to one loca-

tion, the New Providence

Primary Schools Sports

Association’s 2008 volley-
ball championship crowns went in two sep-
arate directions. ,

While Yellow Elder Primary carted off
the girls’ title, the boys’ title went to Garvin
Tynes. Columbus Primary, the double
defending champions, had to settle for third
place in the girls’ division. Their boys didn’t
make the final four.

Public relations officer Frank Johnson
noted that a total of 11 girls and 18 boys
teams started the week-long journey on

_ Monday at the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.

Yesterday, the playoffs and champi-
gnships were contested with the final out-
come coming right down to the wire as both

series went to the third and deciding games. |
In the girls’ division, Yellow Elder

bounced back to win 26-28, 25-18, 15-12
over Claridge, Primary as Andricka Curry
was named the most valuable player and
Robyn Porter was selected as the best setter.

Tamesha Marshall also helped out
tremendously with her passing.

Coach Cardinal Moncur, who got a slight
injury during the team’s celebrations, said he
was delighted for his players who worked
extremely hard, even on Saturdays, to pre-
pare for this moment.

. “We were peaking getting third here and
there, but they wanted it this time,” said
Moncur, who was assisted by Donna Lundy.
“After losing the first set, I think they were
just too anxious.

- “Then they came back after settling down
and they played extremely well. Those girls
could beat the boys. They brought the boys
to where they are. I just thank the Lord
Jesus for this victory.”

Claridge Primary, coached by Nikita Tay-

lor and Latoya Bain-Sturrup, played well .

behind the quartet of Dawayna Pratt, Gege
Moncur and Gia and Kidadda Clarke.

But Bain-Sturrup noted that they played
a Yellow Elder team that just wanted it a lit-
tle more than they did.

“At the end, our girls just gave up. Yellow,

Elder was just the better team. We have to
wait for next year (to win the title),” noted
Bain-Sturrup, as they improved on their
fourth place finish last year.

After winning the first set, Bain-Sturrup
said they just got too complacent and they
gave up.

In the boys’ game, Garvin Tynes and Yel-
low Elder split their first two sets. But in a
close battle at the end of the third, Garvin

‘Tynes prevailed.

Anthony Villalon, the MVP and best set-

‘ter, came up with two straight serves. to

break a 14-14 tie to secure the win for
Garvin Tynes, who only had seven players in
uniform.

“T was nervous,” said Villalon about the
pressure of serving with the game on the
line. “I’m proud of my guys. They played
good.”

Villalon was assisted by Michael Butler,



COACHES Latoya Bain-Sturrup and Nikita Taylor can be seen with their girls team from Claridge Pri-
mary, who finished as runners-up in the New Providence Primary Schools Sports Association’s vol- -

leyball championships...



COACH Janice Williams can be seen with her
seven players from Garvin Tynes, who clinched
the New Providence Primary Schools Sports
Association’s boys volleyball title yesterday at
the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.

Stephon Johnson, Arthur Johnson, Jervis
Hamilton, Kareem Lightbourne and Plieon
Wilson.

Coach Janice Williams said it was a great
feeling to win, considering that it was the
first one in volleyball.

“I just told my guys to hold their heads,
we have this. It was all about the service. If
we could serve, we could win the win and
that is what we did,” she added.

For Yellow Elder, who fell short of dupli-
cating the girls’ championship feat, coach
Lundy said she was still proud of the boys’
performance.

“T guess the best team won. But the level

of play was very high, so I’m very proud of
them,” she said. “I thought we would have
taken it in two sets, but they didn’t execute

- the way we anticipated.”

Martin Conliffe and Sebastian Curtis pro-
vided a 1-2 spark for Yellow Elder.

All of the games were officiated by Tom
‘The Bird’ Grant and his son, Tom Jr. The
two, as ‘usual, hosted a clinic prior to the
start of play and afterwards, the senior
Grant said he was pleased with what tran-
spired.

“T think this was the best one that we’ve
seen,” said Grant Sr. “It shows that the lev-
el of play is getting better.”

Also watching the playoffs was Archie
Nairn, permanent secretary in the Ministry
of Youth, Sports and Culture. He noted
that the event was something their ministry
will continue to encourage.

While he regarded the tournament as a
feeder system that is in its infancy stage,
Nairn said it will foster discipline and respect
by the players as they learn to work togeth-
er as a team.

He lauded the Grants for “unselfishly”
taking the time out to share their expertise
with the physical education teachers and
making sure that the games were officiated
at the highest level and he praised the par-
ents who supported their children by attend-
ing.

Veteran players turned coaches/execu-
tives Joseph ‘Joe Mo’ Smith and Raymond
‘Rhymes’ Wilson also viewed the games.

Smith said the tournament is a feeder
ground, but he’s hoping that more coaches
will come forth and assist the PE coaches.

In addition, he said that he would like to
see the players play on a smaller court with
a smaller ball so that they can really devel-
op their skills before they graduate to the
regular court with the regular ball.

TRIBUNE SPORTS





RICHMOND, Va. (AP) —
Former NFL star Michael Vick
is back in Virginia to face state
dogfighting charges.

The former Atlanta Falcons
quarterback is being held in
protective custody at the
Hopewell Regional Jail, super-
intendent Darnley Hodge said
Friday.

Vick arrived Thursday after-
noon from the federal peniten-
tiary in Leavenworth, Kan.,
where he's serving a 23-month
sentence for a dogfighting con-
spiracy conviction. He was
brought back by the Fugitive
Unit of the Virginia State
Police, which already had two
other prisoners to pick up in the



midwest, state police spokes-
woman Corinne Geller said.

Vick is isolated from the jail's
approximately 1,200 inmates to
avoid disruptions, but will be
treated like any other prisoner,
Hodge said.

Vick, 28, is due to appear
Tuesday in Surry County Cir-

cuit Court, where he's expected .

to plead guilty to two felony
counts in a deal with prosecu-
tors that calls for a suspended
sentence and probation.

The plea would resolve his
last pending criminal charges,
and his lawyers hope would
make him eligible for early
release from prison into a
halfway house designed to ease

he return to society. Only pris-
oners with no outstanding
charges are eligible to partici-
pate in that programme.
Vick's lawyers attempted last
month to get permission for him
to make his plea by videocon-
ference, but Judge Samuel
Campbell denied the request.
Vick was convicted of the

federal charges last August

when he admitted to
bankrolling a dogfighting oper-
ation at a home he owned in
rural Surry County. He also
admitted to participating in the
killing of several underper-
forming dogs. Three co-defen-
dants also pleaded guilty in the
case.

Steelers’ defense controls
Bengals in 27-10 victory

H By ALAN ROBINSON
AP Sporis Writer

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The
Steelers honored defensive
coordinator Dick LeBeau with

a pregame ceremony for his 50-

years as an NFL coach and
player. His league-best defense

found the best possible way to”

pay tribute to him.

The Steelers limited: the
depleted Bengals to six first
downs following an early touch-
down drive and found just
enough offense themselves
amid the snow flurries to con-
trol the clock behind Ben
Roethlisberger and beat Cincin-
nati 27-10 on Thursday night.

Pittsburgh (8-3) wasn't dom-
inating — except defensively —
in winning its fifth in a row over
Cincinnati (1-9-1), its longest
streak since an eight-game run
in the early 1990s. The Steelers
trailed 7-0 until Roethlisberger
threw a 3-yard pass to tight end
Heath Miller, their first touch-
down in more than seven quar-
ters, and didn't take control
until backup running backs
Mewelde Moore and Gary Rus-
sell led a third-quarter drive
that made it 20-7.

"It just felt good to score,"

49ers
OC Martz
fined for
criticizing
referees

NEW YORK (AP) —
San Francisco offensive:
coordinator Mike Martz
has been fined $20,000 by
the NFL for his criticism
of the officiating at the
end of the 49ers' 29-24
loss in Arizona,

Martz said the team had
been "screwed" by the
officiating crew when the
ball was spotted at the 2?-
yard line for the final play
of the game after a replay
of a run on the previous
snap by Frank Gore.
Martz, who thought the
ball would be at the 1,
already had called a run
up the middle that was
stuffed by the Cardinals.

"It cost us the game,"
he said. "We go to the 1
— or the half-yard line —
then spike the ball when,
all of a sudden, officials
tell us they're going to
look at the replay. While
they're looking at it, the
ball stays at the 1. So we
send in a play. Then, when
they make their decision,
they move the ball back
to the 2? and tell us
they're going to start the
clock on the official's
wind. ...

"If they would've
moved it to the 10; we still
would've had to run the
play that was called. We
got screwed because of
the spot, first and fore-
most."

The fine was confirmed
Friday by NFL
spokesman Randall Liu.









Roethlisberger said.

For the Steelers' defense, it
felt good to throttle Cincinnati
following an early TD drive.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, under con-
stant pressure from a Pittsburgh
defense that leads the NFL in
almost every major statistical
category, was below 100 yards
passing until a short drive in the
fourth quarter ended with
Shayne Graham's 26-yard field
goal. Fitzpatrick finished 20-of-
37 for 168 yards, but the Ben-
gals were outgained 364-208.

"It's definitely a big honor for
him," linebacker LaMarr
Woodley said of LeBeau, one of
the league's top defensive minds
and a former Bengals head
coach.

"You honour him and you
want to go out there and win
that game for him."

Not having wide receiver
Chad Ocho Cinco, the former
Chad Johnson, made it a lot
harder for the Bengals. He was
deactivated for violating team
rules following an apparent
flare-up at a team meeting,
though coach Marvin Lewis
wouldn't explain what Ocho
Cinco did.

"It's a curveball for us, but

we had guys who stepped in and .

knew the game plan and knew
how to execute it," Fitzpatrick
said. "Nothing changed. It was
more of a curveball."
Roethlisberger kept with the
baseball analogy, saying the

_ wind and swirling snow on a 32-

degree night made it tough to
throw, even though he was 17-

_ of-30 for 243 yards and was

turnover-free for‘a second game
in a row.

"It was a blizzard out there,

the wind was coming from the
side and a lot of balls were
going sideways. I threw a lot of
sliders out there," Roethlis-
berger said. "It was hard to
see."

Roethlisberger himself scored
from the 8 late in the game as
Pittsburgh held a more than 10-
minute edge in time of posses-
sion.

Before that, Russell ran 2
yards for his first NFL touch-
down with 16 seconds left in the
third after Moore, benched four
days before after being stopped
at the goal line by San Diego
on fourth-and-inches, ran four
times for 21 yards and made a
22-yard reception during a 64-
yard drive.

Starting running back Willie
Parker was on the sideline with

being held to 37 yards on 14
carries.

Jeff Reed also kicked field
goals of 37 and 38 yards that
weren't sure things given the
slippery field conditions that
helped slow a Bengals offense



BENGALS fans sit with bags on their heads as they watch the Steelers beat
the Bengals...

that was loaded with backups
due to injuries — reserves
played most of the game at nine
positions.

The 20-degree wind chill did-
n't prevent Pittsburgh's defen-
sive starters from playing in
short sleeves — much like the
late Mike Webster, the Hall of
Fame center, once did in miser-
ably cold games during the
1970s.

Ocho Cinco's absence
allowed the Steelers to double
cover T.J. Houshmandzadeh,
who was coming off eight con-
secutive games with six or more
catches but found little open
space downfield and ended with
four catches for 20 yards.

"They did what they felt was
best and whether I agree with it
or disagree with it, it doesn't
matter," Houshmandzadeh said
of Ocho Cinco's absence. "He
(Lewis) is the head coach and
Mike Brown owns the team and
they are going to do what they
want. I'm sure he would have
helped, but we've lost eight
games with him."

‘The Steelers, held without a
touchdown during the first 11-
10 victory in NFL history
against San Diego, got off to

another slow start offensively
before scoring on Miller's catch
in traffic in the end zone, but
not until Cincinnati scored first
on Fitzpatrick's 10-yard pass to
Glenn Holt on third-and-6 late
in the first.

Pittsburgh, getting good field
position because of Kyle Lar-
son's 30-yard punt in a game in
which both punters were mis-
erable, tied it two plays after
coach Mike Tomlin went for it
on fourth-and-1 from the 4, with
Russell barely getting the yard
to keep the drive going. Roeth-
lisberger hit Hines Ward for 37
yards earlier in the drive.

Reed's 37-yarder with 1:52
left before halftime put Pitts-
burgh ahead 10-7. Cincinnati
had a chance to tie it or go
ahead but couldn't take advan-
tage after Pittsburgh wide
receiver Limas Sweed, cover-
ing a punt, accidentally allowed
the ball to strike his left hand
and the Bengals recovered at
the Steelers’ 39.

"It's been the tale of our sea-
son," Houshmandzadeh said of
the Bengals' league-worst
offense. "The defense plays
great, the offense is bad, basi-
cally."



Bengals ton’ {
elaborate on
Ocho Cinco
fleactivation

@ By ALAN ROBINSON
AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH (AP) —
The Cincinnati Bengals failed
to explain why Chad Ocho
Cinco, the wide receiver for-
merly known as Chad John-
son, was held out for violat-
ing team rules during their 27-
10 loss in Pittsburgh on Thurs-
day night. ©

The decision to bench Ocho
Cinco was announced about
10 hours before kickoff and
the Bengals said they would
give more details after the
game, but coach Marvin Lewis .
declined to discuss it.

“We deactivated him like
we told you, and Chad will be
back and should be fine and
will hopefully get his treat-
ment and be ready to go (Nov.
30 against Baltimore)," Lewis
said.

Ocho Cinco apparently got -
into a dispute with a coach or
coaches during a team meet-
ing — normally offensive play-
ers meet beforehand with the
offensive coordinator, in this
case Bob Bratkowski — and
was sent back to Cincinnati.

"He went to have a discus-
sion with the coach but I don't
know if he walked out of the
meeting," fellow wide receiv-
er T.J. Houshmandzadeh said.

Defensive lineman John
Thornton also wasn't sure
what happened to cause the
Bengals to bench one of their
best players.

"I know he's done worse,"
Thornton said. "I think this
was just a statement from
coach (Lewis) at this kind of
season we're having. He needs
everybody on the same page.
He suspended him and told
us about it and we all moved
on. I don't think it had a big
effect on the game."

Lewis wouldn't speculate
whether Ocho Cinco's
absence hurt an offense that
did little after driving for a
touchdown in the first quar-
ter. The Bengals were out-
gained 364-208 while being
limited to 11 first downs.

"I don't know that the guy,
that way, hurts you," Lewis
said. "Our other guys stepped
up and got an opportunity to
play and it's good for them."

There hasn't been much

. good about the Bengals’ 1-9-1

season, and Lewis — under
pressure for the team's falloff -
after making the playoffs

' three seasons ago — agreed

that, "We need to change how
we're getting things done."
Whether that means deal-

. ing the controversy-causing

Ocho Cinco or making any
other’ player moves, Lewis
wouldn't say.

"Playing. I'm not talking
about (changing) anything
other than that," Lewis said.
"We need to make sure that
we continue to develop our
guys and do a good job of
coaching and playing."

Ocho Cinco had three
touchdowns:‘in two games
recently, but otherwise has
had a down season after mak-
ing the Pro Bowl during five
consecutive seasons.

"I'm sure he would have
helped. But we lost eight
games with him, so I don't
know how much," Housh-
mandzadeh said. "But, of
course, he would have helped.
.. But they (the Bengals) did
what they felt was best. It
doesn't matter what I think in
situations like that."

Ocho Cinco had ankle
surgery in June and a shoulder
injury in August — about the
time he changed his name
from Chad Johnson — and
has not been as involved in -
the Bengals' offense as much

_ as in previous years. Housh-

mandzadeh has become the
primary receiver, making at
least six catches in eight con-
secutive games untii being
held to four receptions by
Pittsburgh.

Houshmandzadeh leads the
NEL with 77 catches, and has
four touchdowns. Ocho Cinco,
a downfield threat in previous
years, has 41 catches, none for
more than 22 yards. Ocho
Cinco made eight catches for
52 yards during Pittsburgh's
38-10 win in Cincinnati on
Oct. 19.

BOSTON (AP) — The Allen
Iverson trade looked good for
the Pistons when they handed

the Lakers their first loss of the ©

season and snapped Cleveland's
eight-game. winning streak.

It hasn't helped them against
the team they need to beat
most.:

Rajon Rondo had 18 points
and eight assists, outplaying the
recent Pistons acquisition and

leading the Boston Celtics to a -

98-80 victory over Detroit on
Thursday night in a rematch of
last season's Eastern Confer-
ence finals.

"I saw him play like this in
the championship last season, '
Iverson said of his fellow point

. guard. "Rondo played great. He

did an excellent job coming off
picks and getting to the basket
and making plays."

*! Iverson had 16 points and

four assists for Detroit, which

fell to 4-3 since he was acquired

“from Denver for Chauncey

Billups‘and Antonio McDyess.
Those two helped the Pistons

reach the conference finals,

“where they lost to Boston in six

games as the Celtics went on to

win their unprecedented 17th

NBA title. ’

The Pistons followed the
trade with wins against Los
Angeles and Cleveland — two
of the top teams in the league.

But they've also lost a pair of.

blowouts to the defending

‘champs since swapping Billups
“for Iverson at point guard; the
Celtics also beat Detroit handi-.

ly in Iverson's Nov. 9 home

debut, outscoring them 30-10 in -
the second quarter before coast-,

ing to an 88-76 victory.

"We're still trying to find our

identity, and it's still early in the

~ season," Pistons guard Richard

Hamilton said. "Any time you
lose to a team two times by over
20 points, that's absolutely
bananas because we don't play
like that."

The Celtics also said they
expect things to change once
Iverson has had some of his
much-coveted practice time
with his new team.

"They've had some great -

wins, but you have to: figure
they're only going to get better
as the year goes along with
Allen Iverson," said Paul
Pierce, who scored just nine

\



CELTICS guard Tony Allen (42) slams a dunk against the Pistons...

points on 2-for-9 shooting —
the. second time this season
Detroit has held him to single
digits.

"Even though Iverson is a

great player, we don't have to’

worry about their point Bee
posting us up."

The 6-foot-3, 202- epound .

Billups was a touch matchup for
the 6-1, 171-pound Rondo in
the playoffs. Iverson is faster,
and he came out sizzling on
Thursday with seven points and
a steal to help the Pistons open
a 13-2 lead before Rondo
helped the Celtics turn the
game into a blowout.

"I would prefer not to play
either" Iverson or Billups,
Boston coach Doc Rivers said.
"Allen, in the middle of the
first, it was like, 'Slow down. '
I'm amazed by that guy every

time I see him play. The speed
and.endurance that he has every
night is remarkable."

Kevin Garnett scored 15 in
his return from a one-game sus-
pension, and Kendrick Perkins
had 10 rebounds before both
teams emptied their benches
down the stretch.

After scoring 13 of the first
15 points in the game, Detroit
then they made just a single free
throw over the next four min-
utes and Rondo answered with
three baskets to help Boston tie
the game 14-all.

The Celtics scored the first
seven points of the sécond quar-
ter and opened a 40-27 lead
with 5:13 left in the half. It was
49-40 at halftime and Boston

went on an 18-5 run in the third

to turn a 10-point lead into a
75-52 blowout.

Knicks set to make trade

for Warriors’ Harrington

By CHRIS JENKINS
AP Sports Writer

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The «,
New York Knicks were expect-,',.
ed to announce a trade: for...
Golden State Warriors forward!
Al Harrington on Friday. «* | .,.%



Media reports had the Knicks '
sending guard Jamal Crawford —
to Golden State, though it was
unclear if he was the only play-
er.

A trade was expected to be |

announced later Friday, accord-
ing to a person with knowledge
of the deal who spoke on con-
dition of anonymity because it
hadn't been completed.
Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni
said on Friday that his roster
was likely to change before the
Knicks' game against the Bucks

on Friday night, acknowledging ..

reports that Knicks president

“Donnie Walsh was working on

several trades.

x" Let's wait until it happens
—sif it happens," D'Antoni said

before the morning

shootaround. "Obviously, that

would be tampering if I said

Something."
.« D'Antoni said he expected
. Walsh to make moves to

reshape the team in hopes of
clearing salary cap space before

the summer of 2010, and this’

thight be the first.
"The thing is, I think this will

happen a few times during the

year, because I think Donnie
has got his plan, and he will exe-
cute it as he sees fit," D'Antoni
said.

“And we'll go forward. Now
is;this the first step? I don't
krrow for sure. '

«Crawford said he first heard
about the potential deal Thurs-



day night and now considers it
"more likely" than not that the
trade will happen. But he wasn't
letting it bother him.

"When I was younger, when I
first got in the league and you
hear trade rumors, (I was) ner-
vous then," Crawford said. "But
now? No. Because you can't
worry about stuff you can't con-
trol."

D'Antoni acknowledged that
a trade could dramatically
shorten his bench for Friday's
game and temporarily. disrupt
the team's focus.

"I think this is where you
have to be professional," D'An-
toni said. "This is where it's
tough, and it's a hard part of
the business."

Family and -
lawyer say
details.of
investigation
have not.
been turned
over to AG

= By CHESTER ROBARDS
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE family and lawyer of a
_ man shot by a police officer in
Andros on September 2, 2007,
claim the file holding details of
the police investigation has gone
missing.

Kenneth Russell was shot at
close range while at a bar in
Lowe Sound, Andros, after an
alleged confrontation with offi-
cers from a mobile patrol unit.

Now, more than a year later, a
coroner’s inquest has yet to be
opened, according to lawyer
Mario Gray.

“It has not been classified as a
murder as yet,” said Mr Gray.
“That is the whole purpose of
the coroner’s inquest: to see if
there is any criminal liability.

“Recently, the file has seemed
to disappear, and I say disap-
pear because the Attorney Gen-

eral’s Office is now saying that .

they don’t have any record of
the file being turned over.’
Mr Gray,’as well as Kenneth’s

mother Alma Russell, said they

were notified by police that the
investigation had been com-
pleted.

The next step would have
been for the file to be given to
the Attorney General’s Office.
However, when the family and
Mr Gray contacted the office,
they were told that the file was
not there. €

“There may be persons”

involved in the system who do
not want to see justice brought
to a head,” said Mr Gray.

- He said he was assured by
then Police Commissioner Paul
Farquharson that the investiga-
tion would be completed and
then handed over to the AG’s
office. ‘

“When justice is thwarted by
those individuals who do not
wish to see justice happen, sure-
ly there must be a rise and a call
from those of us who are able'to
speak on behalf of those waiting
to see justice done,” said Mr

Reports of mini-nuclear
reactor talks are denied

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

BOTH GOVERNMENT and the
Bahamas Electricity Corporation have
denied reports of talks with an American
company about the feasibility of
installing a mini-nuclear reactor to pro-
vide cheap energy in this country.

Despite comments made by New Mex-
ico, USA based Hyperion Power Gen-
eration’s chief executive officer, John
Deal, who appeared in the international
news media suggesting that his company
is discussing bringing the technology to
this country, the government and BEC
claim no knowledge of any such thing.

The report appeared in science maga-
zines, The Times and The Guardian cf
London, and US based news reports.

Energy

In an interview with The Tribune yes-
terday, John Deal said his company
began talks with the Bahamas about the
feasibility of introducing nuclear power
to this country “six months ago”
around the time that BEC began solicit-
ing bids from alternative energy compa-

: nies to provide a diversified energy mix

for this country.

The “septic tank-sized” nuclear reactor
has been hailed internationally as a nov-
el new means of generating power in an

watt fuel sur-
charge Bahamians were paying in
August of this year, when many con-
sumers were disconnected, or had their
disposable income slashed drastically.

The Bahamian government and BEC
committed themselves this year to reduc-
ing the country’s dependence on costly
and dirty oil, bought in from abroad.

Minister of the Environment Earl
Deveaux has previously emphasised the
potential of solar, wind, wave or ocean
thermal power in the Bahamas as avail-
able sources of renewable energy upon
which this country could rely instead of
depending on oil for 99 per cent of our
power.

Yestetday, both Mr Deveaux and
BEC boss Kevin Basden said they were

not aware of any talks with Hyperion. Mr



Basden said BEC
is not presently
considering
nuclear power as
a generation
option, while Mr
Deveaux noted
that at present the
| Bahamas does

=) not have the nec-
) essary regulatory
| framework to
i deal with the

nuclear power.
Nuclear ‘power
is normally asso-

_ ciated with gigawatt-scale facilities cost-

Hyperion’s plan would see the esti-
mated $25 million septic tank-sized pow-
er module buried beneath the earth, and
run by operators from the local utility
company.

The energy is around five to 10 times

cheaper to produce than solar or wind -

Mr Deal said it is also safe because it
has no moving parts and if it heats up
beyond a certain point it automatically
shuts down, unlike the reactor which

are seized in South Andros

POLICE this week: seized
$8,000 worth of marijuana and a
large number of illegal ammu-
nition in South Andros.

South Andros police, assisted

‘by officers of the Drug Enforce-

ment Unit (DEU), were in the
settlement of Mangrove Cay on
Tuesday, acting ona tip from a

= member of the public, when

they saw two men in a dark Nis-
san Maxima at around 5.30pm.

Upon seeing the officers, the
passenger got out of the car and

fled the area. The driver then ~
pieanete to Pe off, But was

hindered by the officers.

He then got out of the vehicle
and ran, dropping a clear plastic
bag in.a bushy area.

Examining the ‘package, the
officers found eight pounds of

. Marijuana, A 40-year-old man

was taken in for questioning in
connection with this matter.

A day after the incident,
South Andros police and DEU
officers carried out a search of a
home in the settlement of High
Rock,

’ Hidden behind: a wooden

fence on the pLeperty, officers

found a large tube container.
Inside the container were a

Ruger sub-machine gun, 20 live
rounds of hollow tip ammuni- .
‘tion, live rounds of .40 ammu-

nition, 50 live rounds of .22°

ammunition, 5 live rounds of
.223 ammunition, nine shotgun ,
shells, and four potted marijua-
na plants ranging in height
between eight and 10 inches.
Two men, aged 44 and 32,
from the High Rock communi-
ty were taken in for questioning
in connection with the discovery

nuclear disaster in the former Soviet
Union.

“As far as communities such as the
Bahamas are. concerned, you’d be hard
pressed to come up with something that
was as safe, period,” he said. -

“We’ve got probably a five year back-
log (on orders) and we’re not even out to
market yet. It’s just incredible. The
response has been really high,” said Mr
Deal.

Countries including Panama, the Cay-
man Islands and remote communities in
the US are among those. who have
expressed an interest. Firm orders have
been placed by a number of African
countries as well as the Czech Republic,
said Mr Deal.

He claimed talks in the Bahamas have

’ focused around issues such as what

licensing requirements exist, as well as
what demand.

“The Bahamas definitely meets all of
our criteria. Need drives a lot of things,
and I definitely think there’s an oppor-
tunity there for us to help out the

- Bahamas,” said Mr Deal.

He said that prior to signing a deal
with any country, Hyperion is committed
to consulting with the community and
educating them. about the proposal.

“We want to involve the community
from the get-go. We’re not going any
place where people don’t want us,” he
said.

The lame-duck economy

EVERYONE’S talking about a new
New Deal, for obyious reasons. In 2008,
as in 1932, a long era of Republican polit-
ical dominance came to an‘end in the face
of an economic and financial crisis that, in
voters’ minds, both discredited the GOP’s

free-market ideology and undermined its’

claims of competence.

And for those on the progressive side of
the political spectrum, these are hopeful
times.

There is, however, another and more
disturbing parallel between 2008 and 1932
— namely, the emergence of a power vac-
uum at the height of the crisis.

The interregnum of 1932-1933, the long —

stretch between the election and the actu-
al transfer of power, was disastrous for the
US. economy, at least in part because the
outgoing administration had no credibility,
the incoming administration had no author-
ity and the ideological chasm between the
two sides was too great to allow concerted
action. And the same thing’is happening
now. .

It’s true that the interregnum will be
shorter this time: FDR wasn’t inaugurated
until March; Barack Obama will move into

the White House on Jan. 20. But crises

move faster these days.

How much can go wrong ‘in the two
months before Obama takes the oath of
office?

The answer, unfortunately, is: A lot. Con-
sider how much darker the economic pic-
ture has grown since the failure of Lehman
Brothers, which took place just over two
months ago.

And the pace of deterioration seems to
be accelerating.

Most obviously, we’re in the midst of
the worst stock market crash since the
Great Depression: The Standard & Poor’s
500-stock index has now fallen more than
50 per cent from its peak. Other indica-
tors are arguably even more disturbing:
unemployment claims are surging, manu-
facturing production is plunging, interest
rates on corporate bonds —.which reflect
investor fears of default — are soaring,
which will almost surely lead to a sharp
fall in business spending. The prospects
for the economy look much grimmer now

than they did-as little as a week or two °

ago.
Yet economic policy, sates than

responding to the threat, seems to have

gone on vacation.
In particular, panic has returned to the
- credit markets, yet no new rescue plan is in
sight.

On the contrary, Henry Paulson, the
Treasury secretary, has announced’ that he
won’t even go back to Congress for the
second half of the $700 billion already
approved for financial bailouts. And finani-

Large wholesale company is looking fora

- cial aid for the beleaguered auto industry is

being stalled by a political standoff.

How much should we worry about what
looks like two months of policy drift? At
minimum, the next two months will inflict
serious pain on hundreds of thousands of
Americans, who will lose their jobs, their
homes, or both.

What’s really troubling, however, is the
possibility that some of the damage being
done right now will be irreversible. ’'m
concerned, in particular, about the two D’s:
deflation and Detroit.

About deflation: Japan’s “lost decade” in
the 1990s taught economists that it’s very
hard to get the economy moving once

expectations of inflation get too low (it

doesn’t matter whether people literally
expect prices to fall).

Yet there’s clear deflationary pressure
on the U.S. economy right now, and every
month that passes without signs of recovery
increases the odds that we’ll find ourselves
stuck in a Japan-type trap for years.

‘About Detroit: There’s now a real risk
that, in the absence of quick federal aid, the

-Big Three automakers and their network of

suppliers will be forced into liquidation —
that is, forced to shut down, lay off all their
workers and sell off their assets. And if

that happens, it will be very hard to bring |-

them back.
Now, maybe letting the auto companies

die is the right decision, even though an.
auto industry. collapse would be a huge »

blow to an already slumping économy. But
it’s a decision that should be taken care-

fully, with full consideration of the costs

and benefits — not a decision taken by
default, because of a political standoff
between Democrats who want Paulson to
use some of that $700 billion and a lame-
duck administration that’s trying to force
Congress to divert funds from a fuel-effi-
ciency programme instead.

Is economic policy completely paralyzed
between now and Jan. 20? No, not com-
pletely. Some useful actions are being tak-
en...

For example, Fannie Mae and Freddie
Mac, the lending agencies, have taken the
helpful step of declaring a temporary halt
to foreclosures, while Congress has passed
a badly needed extension of unemploy-
ment benefits now that the White House
has dropped its opposition.

But nothing is happening on the policy
front: that is remotely commensurate with

the scale of the economic crisis. And it’s -

scary. to think how much more can go
wrong before Inauguration Day.

Give us fair and
balanced reporting

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I JUST had to write this morning after again listening to foolish par-
tisan politics this morning during the news on one of the radio stations.
One time ago I enjoyed listening to news on this particular Bahamian
radio station, because-I thought that it was fair and balanced, but
since the departure of the former news director, the news at this station
leaves much to be desired.

This morning a Bahamian attorney was interviewed, no not inter-
viewed, he was allowed to give his position on what happened on
Paradise Island last week. As I listened, I groaned within. I groaned
because, he ran on with foolishness as to why the action should not have

been done the way it was done, he continued in his rhetoric asking -

where is the hotel union president, he further stated that when Prime
Minister Ingraham gave his address last week, he should have advised
the country that these workers were going home; were there foreign
workers sent home and on and on and on, his final question was.to the
legality of the exercise. Throughout this presentation, there was no

- interjection from the other side of the microphone with regard to

world events that could have factored into the painful decision that had
to be made by the management of the resort.

This same station then allowed another statement from a “member
of parliament wanna-be” who leads a political party and who has nev-
er won his own constituency seat. To me this individual has substance
once in a while, but this morning was not one of those times in my opin-
ion.

I sometimes wonder whether these persons listen or research what
is going on in the world. Whether you agreed with, the-Senior Manag-
er or not when he gave his response to the action. that was taken last

week as he was interviewed by a top journalist this past Monday — your
thoughts might have been good, interesting.

What company once they have laid you off provide assistance with

regard to resumé preparation and job interview instructions? Former °

employees take advantage of these opportunities.

It is sad what is going on in the country with regards to lay-offs, unfor-
tunately globally we are facing a recession, and some countries, sur-
prisingly Japan is one of them, are already in recession.

At this time persons who have been laid off and have received
packages should use what they have been given financially wisely,
they should be encouraged to know that this is not the end of the
world. I believe that in every disappointment there is an appoint-
ment.

For some persons you might have always aaated to do something
else, but you were afraid to move in another direction, because you
were so dependent on that particular position you had. ~

Five years ago I was laid off from a job that I thought I would have
retired from. For me my department was advised some six months
before it happened that we might have to close our department. When
it happened, my former employer and I shook hands, and I was on my
way with over 30K in my hands. I started my own business. Not every

day is a good day, not every month is a good month, but I have been -

able to sustain it for five years and I am proud. My former employer
and I have a good relationship and that company supports my company.
I have seen this same model come out of what happened at BTC
years ago. Former employers formed companies and are to this-day still
supported by the mother company.

As Bahamians we have to be more global in our thinking and our
outlook on life. How about going to another country and working. I
have a good friend who has lived overseas in prior years along with his
family. They decided to take the opportunity of his layoff to return to
that European country. He has already. received two job offers —
one from his former employer.

Good for the Bahamas we have excellent regulations in place when
it comes to our financial services and I believe that we will be Okay : as
a people.

Bahamians, let’s help to feed, clothe and generally assist each other
genuinely as a people — we have done it before and we will do it again.

We need to stop this continual partisan hostility in The Bahamas, it
gets us nowhere and stifles our progress.

Reporters and journalists alike need to bring more information to the
Bahamian people when they-are reporting and give us fair and balanced
reporting. As a nation we have grown up and no longer desire milk, but
we are looking for meat on the platter of information you dre serving
us, or we will switch stations from local to regional or nationally and
internationally if we have to.

we can steer ourselves out of this

Obviously the Bahamas like
many other Caribbean nations
does not have the economic lever-

China and Japan enjoys. How-

Prime Minister of The Bahamas,
in a public address to the nation

promised a provisional unem-
ployment benefit plan to be
implemented. He further advised
Bahamians of payment arrange- .
ments his government had
already implemented with BEC
in.an effort to provide help for
distressed citizens struggling to ~
pay their electricity bill. Addi-
tionally social services would give
financial relief to families that are
without food or other essentials. I
believe these gestures by the gov-
ernment are necessary and com-
mendable; but they are not near-
ly enough. A reasonable subse-
quent question is, “what happens
to these persons that are unable
to pay their electricity bill in the
ensuing months?. When persons
have used up the temporary pro-
visions and the :government is
unable to do more, then what? I

- am reminded of an old adage that

says, “Give a man a fish you have
fed him for a day, teach a man to
fish and you have fed him for a
lifetime,” An empowered people
in a diversified infrastructurally
developed country equals success
without limitation.
What.about an economic tain

_ ulus packet for the Bahamas, Mr

Prime Minister? Mr Ingraham
spoke about capital investments
that are on-line and ready to go.
It’s good that the government will
continue with these projects, how-
ever considering the massive chal-
lenges of unemployment this
country is now-facing, this is
merely a drop in the bucket. The
government needs to do much
more to help maintain stability in
our country. A substantial con-
struction initiative, carefully
planned would undoubtedly play
a major role in the reduction of
domestic violence and criminality,
in our society.

Additionally the’ Bahamas

chicken farms, crop farms, and
fish farms. (The pioneering list of
entrepreneurship is only limited
to the writing space in this arti-

-cle). We need to move towards

feeding ourselves, now is the time
to get serious about the future of
this country. No more third world
banana republic mentality. We
have some of the brightest minds
in the Bahamas....Let us throw
down the measuring stick of
mediocrity and divisive politics
that keeps us bound to a third |
world status, especially in our
government systems. Let’s reach
for a new stick of excellence in
the first world. With all the intel-
lectual human resources we have
in this country; “We can do it.” |

Let’s be clear, deliberate and
direct about our initiatives to
diversify our economy. In order
to achieve this ambitious chal-
lenge, the government of the
Bahamas along with the stake-
holders of this country would
have to develop a very extensive
‘bipartisan plan of stewardship,
unparalleled vision and wisdom
to borrow the necessary amount
of money and a sensible approach
to pay back the money. The
amount needed could very well
be in the billions of dollars; but I
believe the benefit to the country
would far outweigh the burden
of a nationally unprecedented
loan. Such actions would help us
shield ourselves and lessen the
blow of a prevailing American
recession.

Private enterprises and entre-
preneurship would also excel to a
new level due to the tremendous
leverage afforded to them by a
“stimulus packet.” It is time to
take some of the eggs out of that
one “tourism” basket. I know this
is easier said than done; but, “the
road to a thousand miles begins
with the first step”, let’s plan the
journey together and start step-
ping, now! Forward, upwards,
onwards and together.

hundreds to attend
pro-hanging march

ORGANISERS of a pro-hanging march in
Nassau this weekend are expecting hundreds to
turn out in support.

They believe Bahamians are keen to halt
the spread of “gangsterism” in the land - and
put to death those who murder innocent peo-
ple.

“We are expecting hundreds to attend.

“We need to tell the public what needs to be
done,” said Workers Party leader Rodney
Moncur.

“The nation is in crisis. Hundreds of mur-
derers are on the streets, witnesses are being
intimidated and the Attorney General’s Office
seems to be impotent in bringing cases to
court,” he said.

A message needed to be sent to parliament
urging removal of all impediments to the death
penalty being carried out.

Opposition to ‘capital punishment was, he
added, contrary to the teachings of the Bible.
“There is.a meltdown in the adranistraton of






justice and the country is on its way to hell,” he
said.

Today’s march, which starts at 9am at Yellow
Elder Gardens, is aimed at mobilising those
who feel strongly that hanging is the right

response to the high murder rate.

Feelings were running high, said Mr Moncur,
over the level of “murder and mayhem” in the
country.

“People are very upset and paranoid about
it,” he added, “We are bordering on gangster:
ism. It is not God’s will that his children are
murdered and their killers go unpunished. It is
against the Bible.

“Anyone who argues against capital punish-
ment goes against God’s decision that mur:
derers be executed for taking the life of anoth-
er. :
“Any Christian who argues against that is
not righteous.”

A mock gallows with a “hanging man’ ’ will
be on display during the march.

Pro- gambling group claims govt

failed to respond to meeting request

The Ad-Hoc Committee
for Gaming Reform said
both the Gaming Board and
the Ministry of Tourism
failed to respond to requests
for a meeting about the coun-
try’s “restrictive and discrim-
inatory” gaming laws.

The committee has issued
a second direct request for a

meeting to Senator Vincent.

Vanderpool-Wallace, the
minister of tourism.
According to the commit-
tee, the Gaming Board earli-
er agreed to help in the effort

‘to petition the government | ©
’ to formally take steps leading
_ to legislative reform.

The committee said it
therefore expected to have a
date for a meeting with
senior government officials
before now.

In a statement issued yes-
terday, the committee said

the current practice prohibit-

ing Bahamians from gaming
is “unacceptable in the minds
of the majority of Bahami-
ans”, and noted that chair-
man of the Gaming Board,
Malcolm .Adderley, has
openly advocated for a
review of gaming laws.

The ‘Ad-Hoc Gaming ¢
Committee said it is asking’”

appoint:a select committee
to begin the legislative review
process. It said it expects to
enjoy the support of the
Gaming Board in this regard.

Committee chairperson
Sidney Strachan said: “We
know from the public reac-
tion and on-going discussion
that legislative reform is top
of mind with Bahamians.
We'd hoped that the govern-
ment understood this and
attached some urgency to a
meeting.

“For whatever reason, the
government has not been
résponsive. Our hope is that
this-will change.

Official opening of Gin Sur
Mer’s south shore inlet

School talent show
held to raise bus funds |

@ By ALEX MISSICK
Tribune Staff Reporter

CENTRAL Andros High School parents, teachers and
students came out in mass numbers yesterday to host a tal-
ent show in an effort to raise money for a badly needed

‘ school bus.
Guests were entertained with singing, dancing, modelling ' :

shows, poetry readings and skits put on by the CAHS fami-
ly. Parents did not leave the exhibitions to the children —

many of them got involved and displayed their own talents. - :

The teachers got involved as well, putting on student uni-
forms and staging an impromptu reenactment of how the
students interact with each other in class.

CAHS principal Maxine Forbes said the school’s goal is
to raise about $15,000 for the bus as well as other funds to
be used in many areas of the school.

“We want the school bus because our kids live in Andros

but they are not really able to explore the island because of |
' the transportation issues,” Mrs Forbes said.

Mrs Forbes said she was amazed that the event went so
smoothly, as they only had three days to put everything
together. |

“T believe in doing your best with what you have. We
were not expecting this amount of people to show up to
support the event,” Mrs Forbes said.

John Goodman, father of one of the children participat-
ing in the talent show, said he feels the event was fabulous
and that the children did very well.

Performances

“I think the show went well based on the performances
of the children in the time the teachers had to work with
them. As a parent we have been back and forth throughout
the week and Mrs Forbes along with the other teachers
really put a lot of work into it,” Mr Goodman said.

Mrs Forbes said she would like to see more of the alumni
of the school coming back to support the students.
~ “We have a lot of Androsians who graduated from
CAHS and they are doing well for themselves. It would be

. Mice to see them come back and have the children see an

Androsian who is doing well,” Mrs Forbes said.
The talent show is not the only event Mrs Forbes said the

school is using to raise funds. CAHS plans to host its third _

annual Diamonds are Forever benefit ball on December 6

- and a grill-out to generate more money. «

“I believe in purpose and so while I am here, I believe
my job is to rebuild and lay the foundation down much

: firmer for the person that comes after me,” Mrs Forbes

said.

FREEPORT - Developer Bobby

_ Ginn last week celebrated the offi-

cial opening of Gin Sur Mer’s south
shore inlet — the gateway to the $4.9
billion mixed-use resort at West
End.

Deputy Prime Minister Brent

Symonette accompanied Mr Ginn
on board the 65ft yacht ‘Grand
Baby’ last Saturday morning for the
first sailing through the inlet, which
leads into the mega-yacht marina
facility.

The boat tour departed from Old
Bahama Bay marina around
10.30am. It was marked with a
champagne toast on board the
‘Grand Baby’, a Ginn spokesper-
son said. /

Mr Symonette was taken on a
tour of the 2,000-acre site, where
development is underway on the
mega-yacht marina, a championship
golf course, and a ‘beach club. He
also toured the canal and ocean-
front lots on the south shore of the
property.

Gin sur Mer and Grand Bahama
Power Company last week signed a
$12-million contract for construc-

tion of new electricity infrastruc-
ture to provide increased load
capacity needed for continued
development at West End.

The mega-yacht marina will be
the largest in the Caribbean region
and is expected to be completed in

January 2010. It will offer six miles

of water frontage and a depth of
15ft at mean low water mark and
18ft at high water mark.

Investment

The Arnold Palmer Signature
golf course is 70 per cent complete

‘and the total investment is estimat-

ed at $36 million. Roads, water and
sewer systems for the first 800 lots
are expected to be completed in
December 2009.

Mr Symonette was very
impressed with the Ginn develop-
ment.

He said that the scope of the pro-
ject is comparable to Dubai.

“Mr Ginn certainly has a dream
in West End with Gin Sur Mer. If
we can see this come to fruition, I
think we will see a great develop-
ment happening in our country,”
he said.

_ Mr Symonette said that Ginn has

assured the government that the
funds are in place for the project,
despite its $600-million loan default
with Credit Suisse.

“In this particular project the.

funding required for future devel-
opment is already in the bank, so
the issue of confidence of whether
or not the funding is there to carry
out the development forward does
not arise.

“We are quite comfortable that
the funds are in place for the next
phase of development and so the
issue with Credit Suisse, as far as
the next phase, is not of concern,”
he said.

Deputy Prime Minister Symon-

ette said he was amazed by the mag-’

nitude of the Ginn project and the
movement of fill at West End,
which is comparable to what : hap-
pening in Dubai.

“We are going to be moving the
equivalent of that mount of fill that
was moved in Dubai,” he explained.

“Another point is that the con-
sumption of electricity by Ginn will
be in the region of one-third of what
Freeport consumes today, so that
gives you the perspective of what
will be happening here,” he said.

The entire development will con-
tain 4,400 condominium and hotel

units centered around an 18 storey
tower resort. It will also feature
2,000 single-family home sites,
including waterfront bungalows
with private boat slips.

Mr Ginn said that his company is

_ continuing negotiations with Cred-

it Suisse concerning its loan default
on $650 million loan.

“We are still negotiating and
there is no change at the moment,”
he told reporters last week.

“T have no idea of when negotia-
tions will end, but it is not affecting
what we are doing here in West
End. We escrowed some money
and so development of the project is
continuing on,” he said.

As far as bankruptcy reports, Mr
Ginn said: “Bankruptcy is a word
that is thrown around very loosely
(today) because everyone is having
financial trouble. But there is no
anticipation of bankruptcy on any-
thing we are doing in the Bahamas,
and the Ginn Company is continu-
ing to move forward on all others
projects, but we are being careful,
cutting costs and adjusting to mar-
ket conditions that exist,” he said.

“We have good properties and
employees and we continue to work’
to weather the storm,” said Mr
Ginn.

REV John Macleod and his family — wife Carol, son Andrew and daugh-
ter Bethany — on Paradise Island bridge.

St Andrew's Preshyterian
Kirk has a new pastor

ST Andrews Presbyterian
Kirk has a new pastor in the per-
son of Rev John Macleod.

Rev Macleod, a native of
Scotland, will be inducted as
pastor on Sunday, November
23, at 3pm.

The reverend was raised on
the island of Harris in the
Hebrides, a group of islands off
the north-west coast of Scot-
land.

He arrived in the Bahamas in
August of this year to replace
his predecessor Rev Alastair
Grey.

Prior to Rev Macleod com-
ing, the church had several inter-
im ministers.

“This is an important period
for the Kirk,” said Rev

Macleod, as the church is in the -

process of becoming separate
from the Church of Scotland. .
The Church of Scotland has
always maintained that its inter-
national congregations should
become indigenous churches
and that is very much a part of
what is happening in St
Andrews. It is hoped that the

‘congregation will be shaped as.»

much by its Bahamian present
and future as it was by its Scot-
-tish past.



& “This: amy. hope. to see the.
church become a’strong con- .-

“gregation’ of worshippers who
will serve God and the Bahamas

‘through the power of the.

. Gospel of Jesus Christ,” said
‘Rev Macleod:

Rev Macleod became a Chris-.

tian in his late teens and after.a
short career in sales, trained for
the Church of Scotland ministry,
a process that took over eight
years. In May 2000, he was
‘ordained as a minister by the
Presbytery of Irvine and Kil-
marnock:and was then inducted

to his first church, the Loudoun

Church of Scotland. in

Newmilns, Ayrshire.

He remained there until he
took up his new position in Nas-
sau at St Andrews, located on
Shirley Street immediately
across from the Central Bank
on the north and Government
House’‘on the west. He is mar-

ried to Carol and the couple -

have two children, son, Andrew,
and daughter, Bethany.
- “Kirk” is the Scots word for
church and in the early 19th cen-
tury the congregation of St
Andrews Presbyterian Kirk was
formed by a group of Scots who
wanted to have their own
church in Nassau.

The first minister arrived in

‘Jate 1809 and the cornerstone .
. of the building was laid in

August 1810. The Kirk has

always been part of the Presby-

terian family in Scotland, having
been supported initially by the
Presbytery of Edinburgh and

- now being under the care of the |
World Mission Council of the
Church of Scotland. The Kirk -

was active in planting churches
and today there are congrega-

tions in Freeport and Abaco .
that have their roots in St

Andrews.
Representation from the

Church of Scotland World Mis-

sion Council, led by Rev Dr Ken
Ross, will conduct the: service
of induction on Sunday, Novem-

ber 23, at the church’s location

in Nassau.

Rev Scott Kirkland of the

Lucaya Presbyterian Kirk will
deliver the sermon. Friends
from the congregations in
Freeport and Abaco as well as
from other churches and
denominations in the Nassau
area Will join in on the historic

-service. All are welcomed to

attend and there will be refresh-
ments served.in the Kirk Hall
following the service.

Bush rallies China’s
help on N orth Korea

@ LIMA, Peru

IN A last dash of diplomacy, President George W. Bush-on
Friday sought China’s help in pinning down North Korea to
keep its shaky promises of nuclear disarmament, according to
Associated Press.

Bush and Chinese President Hu Jintao privately tried to push

along a way to verify North Korea’s nuclear declarations —
the latest hang-up in a showdown that has vexed six nations.

The meeting came as Bush began his last scheduled foreign
journey, at a yearly Asia-Pacific forum, where the world’s eco-
nomic collapse and the.North Korea standoff dominated.

Bush even allowed that:he “felt a little nostalgic” over his-final
meeting as.a head of state with Hu, White House press secretary
Dana Perino said. It was some rare reflection from Bush,.a nod
to his ties with the leader of a communist nation that is both
friend and foe.

North Korea has agreed to give up its nuclear weapons in
exchange for coveted aid and diplomatic recognition, a deal
arranged with the U.S., China, Russia, Japan and South Korea.

But it has not fully allowed outside inspectors, and talks have -

repeatedly gone offcourse.

Bush wants to emerge from the Asia-Pacific Economic Coop-
eration forum, also known as APEC, with firm plans for the six
countries to meet in Beijing, perhaps i in early December. The
goal would be to formally agree on the way to verify North
Korea’s nuclear capabilities.

Perino said Bush and Hu discussed that meeting, but no date
has been set.

The president’s other main goal in Peru is to steady the shud-
dering economy by rallying more Pacific Rim nations to shore up
global financial markets. But even that step would soon be
handed to his successor, Democrat Barack Obama, who replaces
Bush in just two months.

The vast economic downturn, rooted first in the United States,
hangs over the meeting. Bush is trumpeting what he calls the key
to a rebound: free markets, trade and people.

“We’re facing a difficult challenge and there will be tough days
ahead,” Bush said in a Saturday radio address released early by
the White House. “But by relying on these principles, we can be
confident in the future of our nation and the world.”

In Bush’s sole public appearance Friday, he was literally gone
in a flash. He shook hands with Hu in a photo opportunity that
lasted under 10 seconds. Neither offered comment.

Privately, the two discussed a familiar range of topics, accord-
ing to the White House: the economic crisis, conflicts of religious
freedom, trouble spots such as Iran and Sudan.

Bush’s pace picks up Saturday in the Peruvian capital of
Lima. He will deliver a pro-trade economic speech, attend meet-

ings of the 21-nation APEC coalition and meet individually |

with the heads of Canada, Russia, Japan and South Korea.
Across the weekend, Bush i is meeting with leaders of the four
other countries involved in ridding North Korea of its nuclear

- weapons program. That effort appeared to get back.on track

when the U.S. removed North Korea from its list of nations
that sponsor terrorism, but North Korea has since balked at

allowing inspectors to take samples from its main nuclear.com- |

plex.

“Our primary goal is to get back to the negotiating table in °

Beijing,” said Dennis Wilder, senior director for Asian affairs at
the National Security Council.

Wilder said the broader aim of the so-called six-party talks is
to leave “a process in place that the next administration can work
with. And I think we will do that.”

On the economy, Bush arrived with a turbulent trail behind
him this week: more startling drops in the stock market only par-

tially made up for by a Wall Street climb on Friday, the highest °

level of unemployment claims in 16 years, and no solution for

~ flailing automakers.

cargo, particularly via ship-

ping lanes through the Gulf

of Aden, which is of strategic
importance to shipping and
trade east and west of the
Suez Canal.

“The international commu-
nity has clearly acknowledged
that not only is the situation

untenable for the shipping -

industry and in particular
innocent seafarers who have
become unwilling pawns, it
has clearly reached the point
at which international trade
and global circulation of cargo
is threatened,” he said.

Mr Palameres pointed out
that another major concern is
the recruitment and retention
of seafarers in the maritime
industry.

He explained that the ‘isk
of being hijacked and held
hostage can act as a deterrent
to seafarer recruitment.

“There is a large shortage
of seafarers in the indus-

try...but, unlike piracy, this
issue does not grab interna-
tional headlines or is seen as
an immediate and acute dan-
ger. Nevertheless, it is just as
real and could in the long term
pose a threat to the viability of
shipping and by extension of
global trade,” he added.

Mr Palameres said last
Monday the IMO secretary
general launched a ‘Go To
Sea’ initiative to raise aware-
ness of the need to boost
recruitment in the shipping
industry:

He commended the
Bahamas for implementing a
maritime cadet corp to recruit
young people in an anc UBETY
of aging seafarers.

“T have had the privilege of
meeting 35 young Bahamian
cadets and this initiative could
not have been more timely
and I commend the govern-
ment of the Bahamas for tag
initiative,” he said.

Opening lead — four of diamonds.
Part of the secret of Sylvia’s suc-
cess at the club was her uncanny
ability to convert dreadful blunders
into resounding triumphs. Sylvia was
by nature accident-prone, and it was
because of this tendency. that she
often found herself in hot water.
‘One of her greatest victories
occurred on this deal where she got
to five clubs and West led a diamond.
Hoping against hope that West had

losers on' the J-10 of spades and so
made five clubs:

As usual, the story of Sylvia's
newest Alice in Wonderland adven-
ture spread like wildfire among the
members of the club. Only after
extended analysis was: it discovered
that the contract could not have been
made had Sylvia trumped the ace of
diamonds. By discarding the ace of
spades, she had found the only way
to fulfil! the contract.

Tomorrow: Future shock.

‘Utah Flash —
reduces roster

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

ONE player got cut and another survived as the

Utah Flash reduced its roster from 12 going into
its,only pre-season game this weekend in the Nation-

al Basketball Association’s Developmental League. |

During the D-League’s draft held last Friday,
Utah selected Bennet Davis with the ninth pick in
the third round and Torrington Cox in the seventh
round.

However, on ‘Thursday night, the Flash made its
first cut, as they waived Cox, a 6-foot-7 forward
from King’s College. Two other players were also
cut.

Left on the 12-man roster that will be reduced
to 10 by November 26 is Davis, a 6-9 forward from
Northeastern University. He is a 24-year-old Grand
Bahamian.

When Utah play their first game on November 28,
Davis is hoping that he will be in uniform as he
continues his dream of playing in the NBA.

While they reduced their roster of draftees, Utah
made room for Bill Walker, a guard/forward from
the Boston Celtics. On Thursday, Walker was

_ assigned to Utah, the Celtics’ NBA Development
affiliate.

Walker, 6-6, joins fellow Celtics rookie JR Gid-
dens on the flash roster.

Utah Flash is expected to play tisk only pre-sea-
son game tonight against the Idaho Stampede in
Burley, Idaho.

Bennet was unavailable for comment as the team
was practicing in Orem, Utah, yesterday before they
took the road for their exhibition game.

Efforts to contact Cox, who will now have to look
at other options, including playing in the European
League, proved fruitless up to press time last night.

Davis, however, is hoping that he will remain -

with Utah until he gets the call up to the NBA.

If he makes it, Davis will become only the fifth
Bahamian to do so, joining Mychal ‘Sweet Bells’
Thompson and Rick Fox, who both played and won
titles with the Los Angeles Lakers, Ian ‘Foots’ Lock-
hart, who played one season with the Phoenix Suns
and Dexter Cambridge, who spent a year with the
Dallas Mavericks.

Celtics blow out Pistons

BOSTON (AP) — The Allen Iverson trade
looked good for the Pistons when they handed
the Lakers their first loss of the season and .
snapped Cleveland's eight-game winning streak.

It hasn't helped them against the team they
need to beat most.

Rajon Rondo had 18 points and eight assists,
outplaying the recent Pistons acquisition and
leading the Boston Celtics to a 98-80 victory
over Detroit on Thursday night in a rematch
of last séason's Eastern Conference finals...

Volleyball champions

nlike last year when the two

trophies went to one loca-

tion, the New Providence

Primary Schools Sports

Association’s 2008 volley-
ball championship crowns went in two sep-
arate directions. ,

While Yellow Elder Primary carted off
the girls’ title, the boys’ title went to Garvin
Tynes. Columbus Primary, the double
defending champions, had to settle for third
place in the girls’ division. Their boys didn’t
make the final four.

Public relations officer Frank Johnson
noted that a total of 11 girls and 18 boys
teams started the week-long journey on

_ Monday at the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.

Yesterday, the playoffs and champi-
gnships were contested with the final out-
come coming right down to the wire as both

series went to the third and deciding games. |
In the girls’ division, Yellow Elder

bounced back to win 26-28, 25-18, 15-12
over Claridge, Primary as Andricka Curry
was named the most valuable player and
Robyn Porter was selected as the best setter.

Tamesha Marshall also helped out
tremendously with her passing.

Coach Cardinal Moncur, who got a slight
injury during the team’s celebrations, said he
was delighted for his players who worked
extremely hard, even on Saturdays, to pre-
pare for this moment.

. “We were peaking getting third here and
there, but they wanted it this time,” said
Moncur, who was assisted by Donna Lundy.
“After losing the first set, I think they were
just too anxious.

- “Then they came back after settling down
and they played extremely well. Those girls
could beat the boys. They brought the boys
to where they are. I just thank the Lord
Jesus for this victory.”

Claridge Primary, coached by Nikita Tay-

lor and Latoya Bain-Sturrup, played well .

behind the quartet of Dawayna Pratt, Gege
Moncur and Gia and Kidadda Clarke.

But Bain-Sturrup noted that they played
a Yellow Elder team that just wanted it a lit-
tle more than they did.

“At the end, our girls just gave up. Yellow,

Elder was just the better team. We have to
wait for next year (to win the title),” noted
Bain-Sturrup, as they improved on their
fourth place finish last year.

After winning the first set, Bain-Sturrup
said they just got too complacent and they
gave up.

In the boys’ game, Garvin Tynes and Yel-
low Elder split their first two sets. But in a
close battle at the end of the third, Garvin

‘Tynes prevailed.

Anthony Villalon, the MVP and best set-

‘ter, came up with two straight serves. to

break a 14-14 tie to secure the win for
Garvin Tynes, who only had seven players in
uniform.

“T was nervous,” said Villalon about the
pressure of serving with the game on the
line. “I’m proud of my guys. They played
good.”

Villalon was assisted by Michael Butler,



COACHES Latoya Bain-Sturrup and Nikita Taylor can be seen with their girls team from Claridge Pri-
mary, who finished as runners-up in the New Providence Primary Schools Sports Association’s vol- -

leyball championships...



COACH Janice Williams can be seen with her
seven players from Garvin Tynes, who clinched
the New Providence Primary Schools Sports
Association’s boys volleyball title yesterday at
the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.

Stephon Johnson, Arthur Johnson, Jervis
Hamilton, Kareem Lightbourne and Plieon
Wilson.

Coach Janice Williams said it was a great
feeling to win, considering that it was the
first one in volleyball.

“I just told my guys to hold their heads,
we have this. It was all about the service. If
we could serve, we could win the win and
that is what we did,” she added.

For Yellow Elder, who fell short of dupli-
cating the girls’ championship feat, coach
Lundy said she was still proud of the boys’
performance.

“T guess the best team won. But the level

of play was very high, so I’m very proud of
them,” she said. “I thought we would have
taken it in two sets, but they didn’t execute

- the way we anticipated.”

Martin Conliffe and Sebastian Curtis pro-
vided a 1-2 spark for Yellow Elder.

All of the games were officiated by Tom
‘The Bird’ Grant and his son, Tom Jr. The
two, as ‘usual, hosted a clinic prior to the
start of play and afterwards, the senior
Grant said he was pleased with what tran-
spired.

“T think this was the best one that we’ve
seen,” said Grant Sr. “It shows that the lev-
el of play is getting better.”

Also watching the playoffs was Archie
Nairn, permanent secretary in the Ministry
of Youth, Sports and Culture. He noted
that the event was something their ministry
will continue to encourage.

While he regarded the tournament as a
feeder system that is in its infancy stage,
Nairn said it will foster discipline and respect
by the players as they learn to work togeth-
er as a team.

He lauded the Grants for “unselfishly”
taking the time out to share their expertise
with the physical education teachers and
making sure that the games were officiated
at the highest level and he praised the par-
ents who supported their children by attend-
ing.

Veteran players turned coaches/execu-
tives Joseph ‘Joe Mo’ Smith and Raymond
‘Rhymes’ Wilson also viewed the games.

Smith said the tournament is a feeder
ground, but he’s hoping that more coaches
will come forth and assist the PE coaches.

In addition, he said that he would like to
see the players play on a smaller court with
a smaller ball so that they can really devel-
op their skills before they graduate to the
regular court with the regular ball.

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) —
Former NFL star Michael Vick
is back in Virginia to face state
dogfighting charges.

The former Atlanta Falcons
quarterback is being held in
protective custody at the
Hopewell Regional Jail, super-
intendent Darnley Hodge said
Friday.

Vick arrived Thursday after-
noon from the federal peniten-
tiary in Leavenworth, Kan.,
where he's serving a 23-month
sentence for a dogfighting con-
spiracy conviction. He was
brought back by the Fugitive
Unit of the Virginia State
Police, which already had two
other prisoners to pick up in the



midwest, state police spokes-
woman Corinne Geller said.

Vick is isolated from the jail's
approximately 1,200 inmates to
avoid disruptions, but will be
treated like any other prisoner,
Hodge said.

Vick, 28, is due to appear
Tuesday in Surry County Cir-

cuit Court, where he's expected .

to plead guilty to two felony
counts in a deal with prosecu-
tors that calls for a suspended
sentence and probation.

The plea would resolve his
last pending criminal charges,
and his lawyers hope would
make him eligible for early
release from prison into a
halfway house designed to ease

he return to society. Only pris-
oners with no outstanding
charges are eligible to partici-
pate in that programme.
Vick's lawyers attempted last
month to get permission for him
to make his plea by videocon-
ference, but Judge Samuel
Campbell denied the request.
Vick was convicted of the

federal charges last August

when he admitted to
bankrolling a dogfighting oper-
ation at a home he owned in
rural Surry County. He also
admitted to participating in the
killing of several underper-
forming dogs. Three co-defen-
dants also pleaded guilty in the
case.

Steelers’ defense controls
Bengals in 27-10 victory

H By ALAN ROBINSON
AP Sporis Writer

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The
Steelers honored defensive
coordinator Dick LeBeau with

a pregame ceremony for his 50-

years as an NFL coach and
player. His league-best defense

found the best possible way to”

pay tribute to him.

The Steelers limited: the
depleted Bengals to six first
downs following an early touch-
down drive and found just
enough offense themselves
amid the snow flurries to con-
trol the clock behind Ben
Roethlisberger and beat Cincin-
nati 27-10 on Thursday night.

Pittsburgh (8-3) wasn't dom-
inating — except defensively —
in winning its fifth in a row over
Cincinnati (1-9-1), its longest
streak since an eight-game run
in the early 1990s. The Steelers
trailed 7-0 until Roethlisberger
threw a 3-yard pass to tight end
Heath Miller, their first touch-
down in more than seven quar-
ters, and didn't take control
until backup running backs
Mewelde Moore and Gary Rus-
sell led a third-quarter drive
that made it 20-7.

"It just felt good to score,"

49ers
OC Martz
fined for
criticizing
referees

NEW YORK (AP) —
San Francisco offensive:
coordinator Mike Martz
has been fined $20,000 by
the NFL for his criticism
of the officiating at the
end of the 49ers' 29-24
loss in Arizona,

Martz said the team had
been "screwed" by the
officiating crew when the
ball was spotted at the 2?-
yard line for the final play
of the game after a replay
of a run on the previous
snap by Frank Gore.
Martz, who thought the
ball would be at the 1,
already had called a run
up the middle that was
stuffed by the Cardinals.

"It cost us the game,"
he said. "We go to the 1
— or the half-yard line —
then spike the ball when,
all of a sudden, officials
tell us they're going to
look at the replay. While
they're looking at it, the
ball stays at the 1. So we
send in a play. Then, when
they make their decision,
they move the ball back
to the 2? and tell us
they're going to start the
clock on the official's
wind. ...

"If they would've
moved it to the 10; we still
would've had to run the
play that was called. We
got screwed because of
the spot, first and fore-
most."

The fine was confirmed
Friday by NFL
spokesman Randall Liu.









Roethlisberger said.

For the Steelers' defense, it
felt good to throttle Cincinnati
following an early TD drive.

Ryan Fitzpatrick, under con-
stant pressure from a Pittsburgh
defense that leads the NFL in
almost every major statistical
category, was below 100 yards
passing until a short drive in the
fourth quarter ended with
Shayne Graham's 26-yard field
goal. Fitzpatrick finished 20-of-
37 for 168 yards, but the Ben-
gals were outgained 364-208.

"It's definitely a big honor for
him," linebacker LaMarr
Woodley said of LeBeau, one of
the league's top defensive minds
and a former Bengals head
coach.

"You honour him and you
want to go out there and win
that game for him."

Not having wide receiver
Chad Ocho Cinco, the former
Chad Johnson, made it a lot
harder for the Bengals. He was
deactivated for violating team
rules following an apparent
flare-up at a team meeting,
though coach Marvin Lewis
wouldn't explain what Ocho
Cinco did.

"It's a curveball for us, but

we had guys who stepped in and .

knew the game plan and knew
how to execute it," Fitzpatrick
said. "Nothing changed. It was
more of a curveball."
Roethlisberger kept with the
baseball analogy, saying the

_ wind and swirling snow on a 32-

degree night made it tough to
throw, even though he was 17-

_ of-30 for 243 yards and was

turnover-free for‘a second game
in a row.

"It was a blizzard out there,

the wind was coming from the
side and a lot of balls were
going sideways. I threw a lot of
sliders out there," Roethlis-
berger said. "It was hard to
see."

Roethlisberger himself scored
from the 8 late in the game as
Pittsburgh held a more than 10-
minute edge in time of posses-
sion.

Before that, Russell ran 2
yards for his first NFL touch-
down with 16 seconds left in the
third after Moore, benched four
days before after being stopped
at the goal line by San Diego
on fourth-and-inches, ran four
times for 21 yards and made a
22-yard reception during a 64-
yard drive.

Starting running back Willie
Parker was on the sideline with

falls into the endzone after being hit by John
Thomton (97) after scrambling for eight-yards
and a touchdown late in the fourth quarter of





Thursday's game in Pittsburgh...



an aggravated knee injury after
being held to 37 yards on 14
carries.

Jeff Reed also kicked field
goals of 37 and 38 yards that

slippery field conditions that
helped slow a Bengals offense

that was loaded with backups
due to injuries — reserves
played most of the game at nine
positions.

The 20-degree wind chill did-
n't prevent Pittsburgh's defen-
sive starters from playing in
short sleeves — much like the
late Mike Webster, the Hall of
Fame center, once did in miser-
ably cold games during the
1970s.

Ocho Cinco's absence
allowed the Steelers to double
cover T.J. Houshmandzadeh,
who was coming off eight con-
secutive games with six or more
catches but found little open
space downfield and ended with
four catches for 20 yards.

"They did what they felt was
best and whether I agree with it
or disagree with it, it doesn't
matter," Houshmandzadeh said
of Ocho Cinco's absence. "He
(Lewis) is the head coach and
Mike Brown owns the team and
they are going to do what they
want. I'm sure he would have
helped, but we've lost eight
games with him."

‘The Steelers, held without a
touchdown during the first 11-
10 victory in NFL history
against San Diego, got off to

another slow start offensively
before scoring on Miller's catch
in traffic in the end zone, but
not until Cincinnati scored first
on Fitzpatrick's 10-yard pass to
Glenn Holt on third-and-6 late
in the first.

Pittsburgh, getting good field
position because of Kyle Lar-
son's 30-yard punt in a game in
which both punters were mis-
erable, tied it two plays after
coach Mike Tomlin went for it
on fourth-and-1 from the 4, with
Russell barely getting the yard
to keep the drive going. Roeth-
lisberger hit Hines Ward for 37
yards earlier in the drive.

Reed's 37-yarder with 1:52
left before halftime put Pitts-
burgh ahead 10-7. Cincinnati
had a chance to tie it or go
ahead but couldn't take advan-
tage after Pittsburgh wide
receiver Limas Sweed, cover-
ing a punt, accidentally allowed
the ball to strike his left hand
and the Bengals recovered at
the Steelers’ 39.

"It's been the tale of our sea-
son," Houshmandzadeh said of
the Bengals' league-worst
offense. "The defense plays
great, the offense is bad, basi-
cally."



Bengals ton’ {
elaborate on
Ocho Cinco
fleactivation

@ By ALAN ROBINSON
AP Sports Writer

PITTSBURGH (AP) —
The Cincinnati Bengals failed
to explain why Chad Ocho
Cinco, the wide receiver for-
merly known as Chad John-
son, was held out for violat-
ing team rules during their 27-
10 loss in Pittsburgh on Thurs-
day night. ©

The decision to bench Ocho
Cinco was announced about
10 hours before kickoff and
the Bengals said they would
give more details after the
game, but coach Marvin Lewis .
declined to discuss it.

“We deactivated him like
we told you, and Chad will be
back and should be fine and
will hopefully get his treat-
ment and be ready to go (Nov.
30 against Baltimore)," Lewis
said.

Ocho Cinco apparently got -
into a dispute with a coach or
coaches during a team meet-
ing — normally offensive play-
ers meet beforehand with the
offensive coordinator, in this
case Bob Bratkowski — and
was sent back to Cincinnati.

"He went to have a discus-
sion with the coach but I don't
know if he walked out of the
meeting," fellow wide receiv-
er T.J. Houshmandzadeh said.

Defensive lineman John
Thornton also wasn't sure
what happened to cause the
Bengals to bench one of their
best players.

"I know he's done worse,"
Thornton said. "I think this
was just a statement from
coach (Lewis) at this kind of
season we're having. He needs
everybody on the same page.
He suspended him and told
us about it and we all moved
on. I don't think it had a big
effect on the game."

Lewis wouldn't speculate
whether Ocho Cinco's
absence hurt an offense that
did little after driving for a
touchdown in the first quar-
ter. The Bengals were out-
gained 364-208 while being
limited to 11 first downs.

"I don't know that the guy,
that way, hurts you," Lewis
said. "Our other guys stepped
up and got an opportunity to
play and it's good for them."

There hasn't been much

. good about the Bengals’ 1-9-1

season, and Lewis — under
pressure for the team's falloff -
after making the playoffs

' three seasons ago — agreed

that, "We need to change how
we're getting things done."
Whether that means deal-

. ing the controversy-causing

Ocho Cinco or making any
other’ player moves, Lewis
wouldn't say.

"Playing. I'm not talking
about (changing) anything
other than that," Lewis said.
"We need to make sure that
we continue to develop our
guys and do a good job of
coaching and playing."

Ocho Cinco had three
touchdowns:‘in two games
recently, but otherwise has
had a down season after mak-
ing the Pro Bowl during five
consecutive seasons.

"I'm sure he would have
helped. But we lost eight
games with him, so I don't
know how much," Housh-
mandzadeh said. "But, of
course, he would have helped.
.. But they (the Bengals) did
what they felt was best. It
doesn't matter what I think in
situations like that."

Ocho Cinco had ankle
surgery in June and a shoulder
injury in August — about the
time he changed his name
from Chad Johnson — and
has not been as involved in -
the Bengals' offense as much

_ as in previous years. Housh-

mandzadeh has become the
primary receiver, making at
least six catches in eight con-
secutive games untii being
held to four receptions by
Pittsburgh.

Houshmandzadeh leads the
NEL with 77 catches, and has
four touchdowns. Ocho Cinco,
a downfield threat in previous
years, has 41 catches, none for
more than 22 yards. Ocho
Cinco made eight catches for
52 yards during Pittsburgh's
38-10 win in Cincinnati on
Oct. 19.

BOSTON (AP) — The Allen
Iverson trade looked good for
the Pistons when they handed

the Lakers their first loss of the ©

season and snapped Cleveland's
eight-game. winning streak.

It hasn't helped them against
the team they need to beat
most.:

Rajon Rondo had 18 points
and eight assists, outplaying the
recent Pistons acquisition and

leading the Boston Celtics to a -

98-80 victory over Detroit on
Thursday night in a rematch of
last season's Eastern Confer-
ence finals.

"I saw him play like this in
the championship last season, '
Iverson said of his fellow point

. guard. "Rondo played great. He

did an excellent job coming off
picks and getting to the basket
and making plays."

*! Iverson had 16 points and

four assists for Detroit, which

fell to 4-3 since he was acquired

“from Denver for Chauncey

Billups‘and Antonio McDyess.
Those two helped the Pistons

reach the conference finals,

“where they lost to Boston in six

games as the Celtics went on to

win their unprecedented 17th

NBA title. ’

The Pistons followed the
trade with wins against Los
Angeles and Cleveland — two
of the top teams in the league.

But they've also lost a pair of.

blowouts to the defending

‘champs since swapping Billups
“for Iverson at point guard; the
Celtics also beat Detroit handi-.

ly in Iverson's Nov. 9 home

debut, outscoring them 30-10 in -
the second quarter before coast-,

ing to an 88-76 victory.

"We're still trying to find our

identity, and it's still early in the

~ season," Pistons guard Richard

Hamilton said. "Any time you
lose to a team two times by over
20 points, that's absolutely
bananas because we don't play
like that."

The Celtics also said they
expect things to change once
Iverson has had some of his
much-coveted practice time
with his new team.

"They've had some great -

wins, but you have to: figure
they're only going to get better
as the year goes along with
Allen Iverson," said Paul
Pierce, who scored just nine

\



CELTICS guard Tony Allen (42) slams a dunk against the Pistons...

points on 2-for-9 shooting —
the. second time this season
Detroit has held him to single
digits.

"Even though Iverson is a

great player, we don't have to’

worry about their point Bee
posting us up."

The 6-foot-3, 202- epound .

Billups was a touch matchup for
the 6-1, 171-pound Rondo in
the playoffs. Iverson is faster,
and he came out sizzling on
Thursday with seven points and
a steal to help the Pistons open
a 13-2 lead before Rondo
helped the Celtics turn the
game into a blowout.

"I would prefer not to play
either" Iverson or Billups,
Boston coach Doc Rivers said.
"Allen, in the middle of the
first, it was like, 'Slow down. '
I'm amazed by that guy every

time I see him play. The speed
and.endurance that he has every
night is remarkable."

Kevin Garnett scored 15 in
his return from a one-game sus-
pension, and Kendrick Perkins
had 10 rebounds before both
teams emptied their benches
down the stretch.

After scoring 13 of the first
15 points in the game, Detroit
then they made just a single free
throw over the next four min-
utes and Rondo answered with
three baskets to help Boston tie
the game 14-all.

The Celtics scored the first
seven points of the sécond quar-
ter and opened a 40-27 lead
with 5:13 left in the half. It was
49-40 at halftime and Boston

went on an 18-5 run in the third

to turn a 10-point lead into a
75-52 blowout.

Knicks set to make trade

for Warriors’ Harrington

By CHRIS JENKINS
AP Sports Writer

MILWAUKEE (AP) — The «,
New York Knicks were expect-,',.
ed to announce a trade: for...
Golden State Warriors forward!
Al Harrington on Friday. «* | .,.%



Media reports had the Knicks '
sending guard Jamal Crawford —
to Golden State, though it was
unclear if he was the only play-
er.

A trade was expected to be |

announced later Friday, accord-
ing to a person with knowledge
of the deal who spoke on con-
dition of anonymity because it
hadn't been completed.
Knicks coach Mike D'Antoni
said on Friday that his roster
was likely to change before the
Knicks' game against the Bucks

on Friday night, acknowledging ..

reports that Knicks president

“Donnie Walsh was working on

several trades.

x" Let's wait until it happens
—sif it happens," D'Antoni said

before the morning

shootaround. "Obviously, that

would be tampering if I said

Something."
.« D'Antoni said he expected
. Walsh to make moves to

reshape the team in hopes of
clearing salary cap space before

the summer of 2010, and this’

thight be the first.
"The thing is, I think this will

happen a few times during the

year, because I think Donnie
has got his plan, and he will exe-
cute it as he sees fit," D'Antoni
said.

“And we'll go forward. Now
is;this the first step? I don't
krrow for sure. '

«Crawford said he first heard
about the potential deal Thurs-



day night and now considers it
"more likely" than not that the
trade will happen. But he wasn't
letting it bother him.

"When I was younger, when I
first got in the league and you
hear trade rumors, (I was) ner-
vous then," Crawford said. "But
now? No. Because you can't
worry about stuff you can't con-
trol."

D'Antoni acknowledged that
a trade could dramatically
shorten his bench for Friday's
game and temporarily. disrupt
the team's focus.

"I think this is where you
have to be professional," D'An-
toni said. "This is where it's
tough, and it's a hard part of
the business."
