THE leading global air trans-
port body has urged the Goy-
ernment and Nassau Airport
Development Company
(NAD)-not-to implement
planned 2011 increases to air-
craft landing fees and a-host of
other charges, warning that this
could drive carriers to either
reduce service frequency or exit
the Nassau market altogether.

The International Air Trans- .
port Association (IATA),
which represents 230 airlines
accounting for 93 per cent of
the world’s commercial avia-
tion traffic, warned in.an
August 11, 2010, letter sent to

by the proposed fees.

Cyriel Kronenburg, assistant
director of industry changes for

_ North and South America, who

signed the letter on IATA’s
behalf, said: “The scheduled
increases: will eventually. more
than double the current costs,
and will make it extremely dif-
ficult for airlines to continue
serving the Bahamas at a prof-
it, which will likely result in a
loss of traffic.

“It is not in the interest of
NAD, the airlines or the
Bahamas to add to the existing
burden and risk a further
decline in demand.”

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace said .
yesterday that while he was.

THE Minister of Education

telling parliament that the
Auditor General found “
evidence whatsoever” of mis-
conduct on the part of the offi-
cial.

He said that unless “tangible
evidence” were to arise that

he will do all he can to pro-
tect both she.and any other

‘education officials against

whom insubstantiated allega-
tions are made. §
“There are a number of

‘ schools throughout the coun-

try where as minister I ordered

audits. One of them was -
- Freeport Primary School and

while at Freeport Primary
School, as at a number of oth-
er schools, there were prac-

eral thought should be discon-
tinued, there’s no evidence
whatsoever of any wrongful

conduct at all by the principal.

or administrators of that
school.

The auditor g general provid-
ed a full report,” said Mr Ban-

‘nister, responding to some,

media reports.

The minister said that com-
ing out of the recently under-
taken audits, the Ministry of
Education held ‘seminars in

_ Grand Bahama to assist edu-

cation administrators who
have to account for funds,

ed

“because we understand they
are not accountants”.

_“They are professional edu-

are not given the kind of assis-

should be given professional-
ly.”

Mr Bannister said that part
of his ministry’s strategy to
help administrators account

brought in by school tuck

shops, is to involve some of
what he said was found to be a
glut of business teachers in
public schools.

“We have schools in Grand
Bahama that have just too
many teachers. One has as
many as 30 teachers more than

it should have. These are

issues of concerns that we
have, these are issues that we
are going to seek to address
and one of the ways we’re
going to be able to do some-
thing about it is to have busi-
ness teachers assist in these
areas.’

A MAN accused of attempt-
ing to rob an armoured truck in
December 2007 proclaimed his
innocence yesterday, stating
that he had no knowledge of

the crime.

Ryan Butler told the nine
member jury he was heading
to the Super Value foodstore in
the Prince Charles Shopping
Centre to purchase milk for his
girlfriend when he was shot by
police.

Butler, who is no longer rep-
resented by an attorney, is
accused of attempting to rob
armored truck driver Andrew
Knowles on December 21,
QOOT!: "teh. *

During his closing address
yesterday, he told the jury that
he had-no knowledge of the
crime and did not take part in
the offence. BO

Prosecutor Anthony
Delaney told jurors that while
Butler would have them
believe that he was an inno-
cent bystander, the evidence
proves otherwise.

Mr Delaney told jurors that
while armed, Butler, and his
cohorts had attempted to rob

_the armored truck outside the

Royal Bank of Canada but
their attempt failed.

He also pointed to testimony
which suggested that Butler
and others had attempted to
make a getaway in a gold Hon-
da Accord but collided with a
blue Toyota Tercel.

Mr Delaney told the jury
that according to evidence,
Butler was shot while attempt-
ing to flee the scene and was
captured at the scene.

He asked the jury not to con-
cern themselves with anything

-said about the case that has not

been adduced at the trial.
Senior Justice Jon Isaacs is
presiding over the case.

cut open by

BAHAMIAN police will not
rush forensics screening on thé
body parts found inside a tiger
shark over the weekend —
despite international media
organisations continuing to
clamour for more information.

Senior officers confirmed sci-
entists will run the full gamut of
forensics tests, including DNA
and toxicology tests, before
releasing their findings.

Supt Leon Bethel, head of
CDU, said: “We are continu-
ing the investigation, we can-
not say now when it will be
completed or when we will
release the report because there
are a few persons that have
been reported missing at sea.

“We are going to check every
one of them with precision.
Once we have done some
investigation we will decide on
what approach we'll take in
terms of the autopsy and foren-
sic samples for comparison.”

Mr Bethel added: “We
received calls from several Mia-

mi-based media outlets.”

Also among the networks
who have contacted The Tri-
bune for the story are CBS,
NBC, Fox, UK-based tabloid
The Sun, and a German media
group.

Police murder inquiry breakthrough
POLICE have made a significant break-through in their inves-
tigation into the murder of 30-year-old Chrishonda Swain, The Tri-

bune was told yesterday.

A man in his early 30s, said to be a resident of Nassau Village,

TRU RO MUSIRCCINIC



of the Shark Research Institute
(SRI), told The Tribune the
marks on the body parts
appear, from a cursory inspec-
tion, to be consistent with tiger
shark bite marks.

She was responding to spec-
ulation that the man's body
may have been chopped up and
thrown into the sea before he
was eaten by the 12ft monster.

Ms Levine said tiger sharks
usually leave "very clean edged
bite marks" because of their
upper and lower serrated teeth.

Due to the limited range of
view the pictures provide, Ms
Levine could not see if there
were defensive wounds on the
remains which would provide
clues of-whether the man was
alive or dead when he was eat-
en.

The investment banker, out
deep sea fishing with two
friends, caught the shark in
waters about 38 miles south of
New Providence on Sunday. He
said a left leg popped out of the

shark as they hauled it on to
their vessel. When the beast
was cut open at the Defence
Force's Coral Harbour base,
RBDF officers also found the
man's right leg, two severed
arms and a torso in two sec-
tions.

The victim is described as a
"black man, of heavy build and
heavy structure."

"He had neither clothes nor
any identifying marks," said
Bahamian investment banker
Humphrey: Simmons, one of
the deep sea fishermen who
hauled the gruesome catch on
board his boat.

Still reported missing are 62-
year-old Frank Brown Sr and
47-year-old-Delton Newton,
who disappeared after their

ble in waters off Clifton Pier

week has also not yet been
found.

was in custody last night assisting police with their investigation.
Senior officers say they expect to charge someone in connection
with the murder by the end of the week. The victim was found dead
on a track road on August 13. Initial reports suggested she had been
raped by her attacker before she was killed with a blow to the head.
Her body was found around 400 ft off Faith Avenue South

Man, woman airlifted
to Nassau after boat
explosion in Andros

By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

aturnquest@tribunemedia.net_.

A MAN and woman
were airlifted to the capital
today following an explo-
sion onboard a boat in
Andros yesterday.

Preliminary reports sug-
gest sparks from loose con-
nections on electrical
wiring ignited gas reserves
on a 15ft boat at a dock in
Lisbon Creek. —

The explosion was said
to be so loud that residents
in the area thought it was a
demolition exercise.

Mable Bastian, 82, who
has lived in Lisbon Creek
for 51 years, said: “I was
home alone when I heard
the explosion. It was so
loud I thought to myself, ©
sound like dynamite blow —
then I slipped my shoes on
and went to see what hap-
pened. When I got there
everything was over but
the dinghy was still intact
at the dock.”

The injured crew mem-
bers had to be airlifted
from the Mangrove Cay
Clinic because of the
extent of their burns.

The group of three peo-
ple were reportedly
preparing to go to the US
Navy’s AUTEC base.

Investigations are con-
tinuing.

The deciding factors for Baha Mar

IT IS understandable why former Prime
Minister Perry Christie was still haggling
over the BahaMar deal up to,two days
before the 2007 election, which he lost.

Not only was he concerned about whether

’ the developer had enough finances to see
the project through, but he certainly did not
want the “secret” clauses involving prime
land in the agreement to be exposed on the
floor of the House. Just before an election an
admission that government was prepared to
transfer 264,965 acres of public land on
Cable Beach to a foreign investor could have
scuttled his election.

Likewise, Prime Minister Ingraham is
taking no chances in the new Baha Mar deal

with a new partner. The request for work :

permits for foreign labourers — 8,150 with

the peak number at any given time being.

5,000 — is unprecedented. This is one deci-
sion that his government is not going to
make albne. The Bahamian people —
through their duly elected representatives
— will now have to join government in say-
ing aye or nay to the $2.5 billion project.

If either of these proposals — the land
deal or the labour request — had been pre-
sented to the Bahamian people in 2007, there
would have been a loud bellow: “Hell, no!”

But times have changed. Too many
Bahamians are jobless. In 2007 no one could
predict the world’s economic collapse. Today
suffering from that collapse, Bahamians need
jobs. They have to educate their children
and pay their bills. And so they will probably
agree to the project provided all foreign
workers on completion of their work are

repatriated. Also if the developers do not .

live up to their agreement, all public land will
revert to the government.
We certainly understand the position of
the Chinese. Wherever they do similar pro-
jects, they use their own material and labour.
Not only do they understand what they are
dealing with and know how to cost it, but it
is their money, and their policy is to invest it
in their people. And so the concessions that
they are now prepared to make to Bahami-
ans from their point of view would be a con-
siderable bending of their own rules to
accommodate Bahamians. .
It is said that all Chinese workers, 8,150 of
’ them, will be engaged on Baha Mar’s
“Core” projects, while some 1,200 Bahami-
ans will be employed in the non-“Core” pro-
jects. Mr Ingraham said that the Baha Mar
_ principals.are in discussion with their Chi-
nese partners to also engage Bahamian con-
tractors in a number of “trade packages”
related to the Core project, totalling about
$40 million. It is expected that this might

engage about 3,300 Bahamians at the height
of construction of the Core projects.

Mr Ingraham said that in the 1950s the
law and the government permitted as high as
25 per cent of the labour force in construc-
tion and/or operation of tourism develop-
ment to be foreign. Beginning in the 1980s,
said Mr Ingraham, the practice evolved
where large foreign components were
engaged in the construction of hotels, and a
smaller number of foreigners were allowed
to work in the hotel upon completion.

He reminded House members of the sub-
stantial foreign work force engaged to con-
struct the Crystal Palace Resort and Casino,
the Wyndham Crystal Palace Resort and
the US Departure Terminal at the then Nas-
sau International Airport. He said at those
two projects there were Indians, Braziians
and other foreigners who far outnumbered
the Bahamian work force.

When in 1992 his party became the gov-
ernment, it was decided to discontinue the
PLP employment practices. In 1993, he said,
on agreeing the terms of the redevelopment
of Kerzner’s Paradise Island, “notwith-
standing the demonstrable need for the
engagement of large numbers of expatriate
experts and labour for the timely completion
of the project,” the ratio of Bahamians to
non-Bahamians on the construction site was
not to exceed 30 per cent foreign to 70 per
cent Bahamian, increasing on the required
Bahamian component above the 1954 statu-
tory base of 25 per cent.

However, he pointed out that when the
PLP succeeded his government, they did not
adhere to this employment ratio on the con-
struction of the Bimini Bay resort at North
Bimini. As a result, foreign workers, mainly
Mexican, far exceeded the number of
Bahamians engaged on that project.

And now they are faced with the Baha
Mar project: a 71 per cent foreign work force
to a 29 per cent Bahamian work force.

The legislators now have to decide on
behalf of their constituents: Will this revive
employment and will the transfer of tech-
nology and skills to the Bahamian work

. force make this project not only viable, but

also attractive?

This will be debated and decided in the
House on Wednesday or Thursday, Sep-
tember 22 and 23.

In the meantime Baha Mar has to satisfy
the Scotia Bank loan before it can conclude
a deal with the Chinese bank. And so the
two deciding factors— the Bahamian people
on the one side, and Scotia Bank on the oth-
er before Baha Mar and their Chinese part-
ners can turn the first sod of Bahamian soil.



What does
McCartney
bring to
the table?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

PLEASE allow me to
express a few thoughts on the
political scene in the Bahamas
today. I want to focus on the

- question of the emergence of

new leadership in the Free
National Movement party.
Like Bahamians every-
where, I too am watching to
see. what happens at the lead-
ership level of the party in the
very near future. Similarly,
not so long ago we all
watched with bated breath the
leadership struggle in the

opposition Progressive Liber-

al Party. «

Now leaders emerge at dif-
ferent times and in different
ways. Some are wrought in
the belly of adversity and
national crisis, while others
are crowned with little or no
history of struggle whatsoev-
er. a
It is in that light that I have
listened to all the talk about a
certain politician - Bamboo
Town MP Branville McCart-
ney to be exact — who has not
hidden his desire to succeed
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham as party leader.

There.is nothing wrong
with ambition, but it must be
tempered with reality. If it is
true that Mr McCartney is
actively plotting Ingraham’s
downfall, then he had better
read the tea leaves again.

What exactly does Mr
McCartney bring to the
table? Firstly, let us examine
briefly his parliamentary per-
formance as the MP for Bam-
boo Town. The fact is that he
has made very few speeches
on the floor of the House
since entering those hallowed
halls a little over three years
ago.

He has not, in my view, dis-
tinguished himself as a par-
liamentary performer, show-
ing judgment and originality
in his speeches. He has not
demonstrated an ability to
think on his feet in the cut
and thrust of debate.

year to take a seat on the
back benches. , :

That brings me to look
briefly at his resignation from
the cabinet. He claimed that
at the forefront of his deci-
sion were “feelings of stagna-
tion and the inability to fully
utilize my political potential
at this time.”

I have already said in an
earlier letter that I felt that
Mr McCartney’s resignation
was motivated by selfish polit-
ical ambition and an inability
to work as a team player in
Cabinet.

I think that even Mr
McCartney’s: supporters
would agree that loyalty is.an
important component in par-
ty politics. One must demon-
strate that one does not place
personal ambition over party
loyalty and unity.

What was even more sur-
prising, some say astonishing,
was that after his resignation
he announced publicly that
he did not like the direction in
which Ingraham —a sitting
prime minister — was leading
the country. But despite that,
he has remained firmly
entrenched in the party. He
has continued. to-strengthen
his base in Bamboo Town,
not knowing whether the
bouridaries will remain the
same in the next general elec-
tions, or, indeed if he will be
the party’s candidate next
time around. One must not
take things for granted in pol-
itics.

His resignation speech cer-
tainly raised questions in my
mind whether Mr McCartney
still fully subscribes to, or
accepts, the policies of his
own party, if he is of the view
that the leader is taking the
country in the wrong direc-
tion.

That brings me to my third
point about this so-called
leader-in-waiting. Apart from
his views on illegal immigra-
tion, which I think it is fair to
say that all Bahamians share,
we really don’t know much
about where he stands on oth-
er issues.

If he wants to lead the
country — not a petty shop —
he must articulate his views
on education, job creation
and the rights of women and
children. He must state a posi-

_tion on the role of private

enterprise in the economy;

strengthening family life, con-
stitutional reform, prison
reform and health care, as
examples.

I think the public is entitled
to know his views on these
things. If I were a delegate at
the party’s convention, I
would certainly want to know
where he, or any other can-
didate, stood on these issues.

How can’a man - or a
woman — expect to lead a
whole nation without telling
the people where he or she
stood on these important
issues? I am sure that the
major financial backers in the
party would want to know his
views on private enterprise,
and the limits of government
in the economic life of the
country, before casting a bal-
lot for him.

It is not too late for him to
explain to the nation his views
on these things before the
convention.

Lastly, I would just like to
touch very briefly on Mr
McCartney’s history in his
party. Is it fair that he should
be allowed to jump the line
ahead of men like Dion
Foulkes, Zhivargo Laing,
Tommy Turnquest, Daron
Cash and Carl Bethel in any
leadership race? Whatever
one’s views on their perfor-
mances, they have endured
the heat of the day, the toils,
disappointments, and frustra-
tion of opposition politics
over very many years.

Suppose, for argument
sake, that McCartney chal-
lenges Ingraham at the con-
vention and wins. That would
mean that Mr McCartney
would be thrust suddenly into
the seat of prime minister
over night. That is what would
happen.

That would mean that
Ingraham would, in all prob-
ability, resign from the Cabi-
net. He might revert to the
back benches, or he might
resign from the party alto-
gether.

That would mean that the
country would be saddled
with a prime minister who
was not elected in a general
election; who has never been
tested in any crisis and who,
apart from his views on immi-
gration, is a totally unknown
commodity. Would that even
be fair to Mr McCartney?
Would it be fair to the coun-

try?

Prison reform
‘well on its way’

By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

PRISON reform is well on
its way, according to Superin-
tendent Dr Elliston Rahming,
head of the Prison Department.

Dr Rahming said “signifi-

cant” changes have been made .

over the past five years to
encourage a “genuine philo-
sophical shift from revenge and
punishment to rehabilitation
and reintegration.”

He delivered these com-

ments as the prison celebrated
its accomplishments last week
with a presentation to members
of the clergy.

At the top of the list of
achievements mentioned was
the record low of escapes. Dr
Rahming said the overall
escape rate was kept at 0.25 per
cent of the total prison popula-
tion over the past five years.

In 1998 and 1999 there was a —

record high of 18 escapes col-
lectively. In 2005 and 2006, Dr
Rahming’s first two years in
charge, there were eight
escapes collectively; in 2007
there were two; one in 2008,
and none in 2009.

Over the same period, Dr
Rahming said, the rate of
recidivism among new admis-
sions fell to 19 per cent.

Course offerings in academ-
ic, technical and vocational sub-
jects more than doubled and
the Extra-Mural Programme
was expanded to accommodate
5Oinmates: ~ ae

One of the measurements

used.by Dr Rahming in access-,

ing the impact of new pro-
grammes is the number of cas-
es brought before the prison
tribunal on a monthly basis.

In June there was one case ©

chargers and five cell-phones
confiscated; and four “jookers”,

_ or stabbing implements .found.

Dr Rahming said the June
number were average, and no
cause for alarm.

There were five cases of offi-
cer infractions brought before
the tribunal in the same peri-
od. The infractions included
neglect of duty, insubordinate

conduct, and being absent with-_

out leave. q
Dr Rahming also said a state-

of-the-art Health Diagnostic

Unit was created “to reduce the

‘need to have staff and inmates

go to Princess Margaret Hos-
pital for various routine diag-
nostic tests.”

The exercise yards in Maxi-

‘mum Security and the Remand

Facility were both renovated.
The courtyard was paved and
fenced in the case of Maximum
Security.

A $7,000 cell-phone sniffing
dog has also be put to use on
the prison compound. Five cell-
phones were confiscated in
June.:

Centre was completely reno-
vated, and “clutter, debris and

graffiti within Maximum Secu-
rity cells and corridors” was
“significantly cleaned up”, said
Dr Rahming. —

The prison documented its

accomplishments over the past. —

five years in a newly published
progress report on prison

’ reform.

‘The publication highlights
the creation of an Officer
Dependents Fund. that dis-

persed $6,000 about three.

weeks ago to the families of
deceased officers. There is cur-

rently $60,000 on'account for

the fund.

Dr Rahming said the details
of the report will be presented
and discussed with family mem-
bers of inmates at the next
quarterly meeting, which is
scheduled for the end of Sep-
tember. ;

He addressed some of the
concerns of inmate relatives,

who told The Tribune their’

family members had to wait:
long periods of time to get
orders filled by the prison com-
missary. :

One mother said her son had
to wait “sometimes one month”
to get water and other items.

Dr Rahming said every
prison on the compound gets
to order once per week and has
orders delivered once per week.
The exception, he said, is Max-
imum Security, where items are
delivered twice per week, as

they have their own commis-

sary. k

“What happens sometimes is
inmates send in an order form
thinking there is money on their
account when there is none. It
may be two or three weeks
before someone puts money on
their accounts,” said Dr Rah-
ming.

He said inmates get a receipt
when an order is filled indicat-
ing the balance on their prison
account. Family members are
able to deposit money on an
account for inmates to purchase
goods from the prison commis-
sary.

“Let’s say the balance is near
zero and a family member
comes and says they will put
$100 on tomorrow. Sometimes
they don't do it (right away),

but the inmate thinks it has |
been done, so he places an:

order,” he said.

prison is closed to visitors

though many Bahamians are still
unemployed on Grand Bahama.

Mr Laing explained that work
permits are only issued for posi-

and qualifications that do not
exist within the local labour
force. |

“We have to recognise that
evety work permit does not rep-
resent a job that a Bahamian can
hold,” he said. . °

The Grand Bahama Shipyard is per-
haps the largest employer of foreign
labour here on the island.

\Bahamian workers are significantly
out-numbered by expatriate workers. The
shipyard currently employs a labour force
of about 700 persons. Of that, 275 are
Bahamians,

Efforts are now underway to train

Bahamians to fill key. skilled positions,

of éstablishing-a Technical

positions that are-usually filled
by foreign labourers.

There is a growing demand
for skilled welders and pipe-fit-
‘ters at the oil refining facility.
The company has had to import
foreign labour because of the
lack of local technical resources.

The school will be able to
train and certify up to 30 welders and
pipe-fitters per year.,

Mr Laing said the immigration policy of
the Bahamas requires for positions to be
advertised locally before any work permit
is issued. ,

“I know that there are people who |

clearly believe that principle has been
violated a number of times.

“Tf you look at the-category for maids
and gardeners, the vast majority of work

permits are applied for by Bahamians,

‘they are not applied for by non Bahami-
. ans,” he said.

Minister Laing said the government,
seeks to accommodate all applicants
when they can demonstrate that they
have been unable to fill that particular
need locally. i

The economy of Grand Bahama con-’
tinues to be challenged and many people
still continue to seek employment.

’ Mr Laing stated that the government is
doing all it can to ensure that permits are
not issued in areas that can be filled by
Bahamians. '

He noted that the Ministry of Labour
has ‘a skills bank where employers can
submit their needs and persons can send
in their information for jobs they are
seeking. '

“Just because you have a pool of unem-
ployed people and you have a develop-

ment taking place does not mean that

every skill required for the development
issmatched by your unemployed.

“But what we are doing now is,seeking-
to pay particular attention to these exist-
ing permits and applications for permits
so Bahamians don’t miss an opportunity
to find employment,” he said.

Airplane in crash
‘not insured

for commercial
operations’

By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

THE airplane that crashed
off the coast of Grand
Bahama late August was not
insured for commercial oper-
ation, according to Tribune
sources.

The operators of the six-
seater Piper Aztec aircraft
that went down in waters 26
miles off Grand Bahama did
not have the proper certifi-
cates or requirements for
commercial operation, the
source alleged.

Investigators have not
released the official mainte-
nance report as yet, but Tri-
bune sources claim that the
Grand Bahama crash is a
“classic. case” of hacking.

The twin-engine plane
developed engine problems
10 minutes into the flight
from Walker’s Cay. Six per-
sons — four adults and two
children — were onboard.

They hung onto the tail of :

the plane for nearly three
hours until rescuers arrived.
Pilot Fritz Cambridge,
LaTanya Miller, Miriam
Gibson, and Jennifer Bullard
and her two children, Ter-
rinique, 14, and Tamasio, 9,
were taken to the Rand
Memorial Hospital for treat-
ment.
Mr Cambridge was issued
a commercial pilot certificate
_in 2008, according to the
Federal Aviation Authority
(FAA) website. His medical

status in the FAA Registry is:

dated January 2008.
According to. an experi-
enced pilot, aviation regula-
tions stipulate that pilots
have to be certified as med-
ically fit to exercise their
rights under a pilot license.
They also have to participate
in a biennial flight review.
“Tf you have a commercial
licence; the medical require-
ment is once every 12 calen-
dar months. If you have a
private pilot licence, depend-

ing On age, it is every 36 cal-". :

endar months,” said the
pilot.

He said the FAA website
is usually current within a 60
to 90-day period. “If you see
something that is more than
a year old, more than likely
that is (a correct record),”
he said.

’ Hacking is a problem avi-
ation authorities have been
trying to crack down on for
years.

_In recent months, there

“were two accidents that
involved aircraft that were
not licenced to operate char-
ters — one of them, the twin
engine aircraft that crashed
on Bimini in May, in which
two people died.

_ “The public must be

aware that the practice of }
unauthorised aircraft char- :
ter operations is indeed a‘

dangerous form of black
market travel. In many
instances, these operators
may be unlicensed, unin-
sured, uninspected and may
not met applicable Bahamas
Civil Aviation (Safety) Reg-
ulation (BASR) or Federal
Aviation Administration
(FAA) safety standards,”
said Delvin Major, aviation
safety inspector.

“Most pilots who conduct

these unauthorised/unregu- r

lated charters, work private-
ly and quietly “out of the
back of their cars” and do
not advertise, making them
difficult to apprehend. This

trend has grown over the iY

years and has proven diffi-

cult to control,” he said.
The Bahamas aviation

authorities do not provide a

public database to access |

pilot récords or aircraft
records, as does the FAA.

However, most Bahamian
pilots are trained and
licenced in the US, according
to a senior pilot, so the US
database contains a lot of
information.

He said the US ficelices

are converted to Bahamian. :

licences by the local author-
ities, as there is no local
training prédgramme. °

It is possible to search the
FAA website to look up the
certification status of any US

licensed -pilot or teeuuaed

aircraft.

If there is‘a problem with
a pilot’s licence. - if-it has
been revoked or suspended
— the website red flags the
entry and instructs the user

to contact'the airman’s cer-

tification branch of the
FAA.

. Bahamian passengers can
contact the Civil Aviation
Department if they have a
question about the status of
a pilot or charter company.

Call for local products, |
- Bahamian vendors at
- the new straw market —

By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
mreynolds@tribunemedia.net

YOUNG Bahamians are

calling for the new straw >

market to feature strictly
local products sold by
Bahamian vendors.

They made this appeal in
a discussion facilitated by
the Downtown Nassau Part-

nership (DNP).

Their contributions posted
on a Facebook page’ oper-

i. ated by the DNP will be
: . passed on to managers of

the new straw market in the
Ministry of Tourism and
Ministry of Works.

As the new straw market,
which is set to open in
August or September next
year, nears completion,
Bahamians interested in the
future of downtown Nassau

‘are putting forth their views.

with calls for better man-
agement, maintenance, and
strictly Bahamian vendors
selling authentic local prod-

-ucts.

“I think that only authen-
tically Bahamian items

shouldbe sold ae the gew

straw market and those
found to be selling other
items should be evicted,”
said a commentator who
goes by the moniker
‘Errolee’. :

“All those ‘knock off”
items from those other
countries should remain in
those other countries. Also,
please.keep those other for-
eign nationals out. This new
straw market should be for

the employment of Bahami-

ans only.”
A poster by the name
‘Denise’ added: “I agree

with keeping foreign nation-

als out and it has nothing to
do with being racist or prej-
udiced:

“Tt is a huge problem for
me when I go to attractions

Cape Eleuthera Institute

launches Bahamian
apprentice programme

THIS summer the Island
School and Cape Eleuthera

“Institute. (CEI) graduated its

first class of students in the
Bahamian Apprentice. Pro-
gramme. The programme
offers Bahamian high school
and college students an
opportunity to gain real
work experience through
paid apprenticeships in areas
such as office administra-
tion, culinary arts, carpen-
try and boat operations.
The 2010 Bahamian

apprentices were Shapreka .

Clarke and Malcolm Good-
man of Deep Creek, Teran

* Mackey of John Millars, and

Chris Kemp and Charlene
Nixon of Wemyss Bight.
’ Shapreka and Chris have
had long affiliations with
The Island School as alumni
of the Deep Creek Middle
School.

Chris now attends the

Bahamas Technical and
Vocational Institute and
Shapreka received a schol-
arship| to. attend the
Roanoke College in Salem,

Virginia. She is currently

majoring in biology and
plans to attend medical
school. Shapreka assisted
with database entry and oth-
er daily office administra-
tion duties for both the CEI
and the Island School during
her apprenticeship.

“One of the things I
learned is the importance of
networking and meeting
new people. I met a lot of
different people and I
learned a:lot about them,”

' said Shapreka.

Another apprentice, Ter-

an Mackey, is a recent grad-

uate of Preston H Albury
High School in Rock Sound,
Eleuthera.

He spent his summer

apprenticeship learning how
to create new meals with the
Island School kitchen staff.

“The communication and
networking skills I learned
this summer will help me
with my future career of
owning my own hotel,” said
Teran. °

“We are extremely proud
of the group of students we
had with us this summer,”
said Karla Cosgriff, manag-
ing director of CEI. :

“They embraced their
jobs and new opportunities
in our community with
enthusiasm and all have
developed additional skills
and confidence.’

The Island School and the’
CEI will be expanding the
Bahamian Apprentice Pro-
gramme in summer 2011 to
include more students from
South Eleuthera and
beyond.



IN THIS photo taken Aug. 25, 2010, a street vendor sits in front of rubble from a building,. Aeatriyed by
the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. By some estimates, only 2 percent of the:250 mil-
lion cubic-meters of debris in Port-au-Prince has been cleared, for reasons ranging from lack of equipment
and money to an abysmal property records system. (AP)

Just two percent of quake
debris in Haiti cleared

BAGELS

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti

FROM the dusty rock mounds lining the
streets to a National Palace which looks like it's'
vomiting concrete from its core; rubble is one
of the most visible reminders of the Haiti's dev-
astating earthquake, according to Associated
Press.

Rubble is everywhere in this capital city:

cracked slabs, busted-up cinder blocks, -half-

destroyed buildings that still spill bricks and pul-
verized concrete on the sidewalks. Some places

look as though they have been flipped upside -

down, or are sinking to the ground, or listing
precariously to.one side.
By some estimates, the quake left about. 25

"million cubic meters of debris in Port-au-Prince
.— more than seven times the amount of con-

crete used to build the Hoover Dam. So far, only
about two. percent has been cleared, which means

‘the city looks pretty much as it did a month after

the Jan. 12 quake.

Government. officials and outside aid groups
say rubble removal is the priority before Haiti can
rebuild. But the reasons why so little has been
cleared are complex. And frustrating.

Heavy equipment has to be shipped in by sea.
Dump trucks have difficulty navigating narrow
and mountainous dirt roads..An abysmal prop-
erty records. system makes it hard-for the gov-
ernment to. determine who-owns a dilapidated
property. And there ‘are few sites on which to
dump the rubble, which often contains human
remains.

Projects funded by USAID and ihe US.
Department of Defense have spent more than

$98.5 million to remove 882,000 cubic meters of ©

rubble. Because all the equipment needs to be
shipped to Haiti, and because land to dump the
debris is scarce and expensive, the cost is -high.
Also, no single person in the Haitian govern-
ment has been declared in. charge of the rubble.
This means foreign NGOs have taken on the

. rubble removal task themselves, often fighting for -
- asmall pool of available money and contracts —

which in turn means the work is done piecemeal,
with little cooordination. .

"There's not a master plan," sighed Eric Over-
vest, country director for the U.N, Development
Program. "After the earthquake, the first prior-
ity was clearing the roads. That was the easiest
part."

Overvest said the Interim Haiti Recovery
Commission — which was created after the earth-
quake to coordinate billions of dollars in aid —
has approved a $17 million plan to clear rubble
from six neighborhoods in Port-au-Prince. The six

“neighborhoods have not yet been selected, he

added, and it's unclear when debris will be

\ removed from other areas.

Leslie Voltaire, a Haitian architect, urban plan-
ner and presidential candidate, says his country
needs.a "rubble czar.

"Everybody is passing the blame or why things
haven't happened yet," he said. "There should be
one person in charge. Resettlement has not:even
begun yet, and it can't until the city has been
cleared."

Voltaire maintains that there 2 are enough cr thchs
ers, dump trucks and other heavy equipment for
the job; others say that more machinery is need-
ed. But everyone agrees that recovery will take
decades. — and the slower the rubble removal,
the longer the recovery.

Most Haitians are simply living with the rubble,
working and walking around it. After a while, the
gray heaps and cockeyed buildings just blend
into the tattered background of the city.

"It will take many, many years to fix," acknowl-
edges Overvest. "We can't just go with wheel-

~ ever be cleared,"

barrows to remove it."

But that's exactly what s some Haitians are
doing: using shovels and wheelbarrows to clear
properties — a Sisyphean task if there ever was
one.

"Personally, I don't: think Port-au-Prince will
shrugged 47-year-old Yvon
Clerisier, an artist who: was working a tempo-
rary job clearing rubble with a rusty shovel for a
private homeowner on a recent summer day. He
wore torn jeans, a sweaty T-shirt and sandals,
and was covered in a fine. dust. /

Clerisier was one of a dozen men in his crew; in
100-plus degree heat. The property owner, Gre-
gory Antoine, said he paid the crew $1,200 for
three weeks of work.

"People want to work," Antoine said. "If you
get a good organization to put people to work
and give them direction, things will’ get.done.
But right ‘now, nothing is. getting done."

It's not for lack of trying. The non-profit CHF
International spent about $5 million of USAID
money on heavy machinery and paying Haitians
to remove rubble from specific sites. ‘

Dan Strode was the rubble removal’ opera-
tions manager for CHF for three months; some
dubbed him "the rubble guy" because of his
enthusiasm for the job.

"Rubble isn't.sexy," the Californian admits.
"And clearing it is not as simple as people think."

Strode's big worry: that debris won't be cleared
fast enough and that the piles of rocks and
garbage and dirt will be overtaken by tropical
growth.

"If we don't clear it, what we will leave behind
is something that is worse than before," said
Strode. "If you come back in a year, and the
rubble hasn't been cleared, it will be grown over,
subject to landslides and unstable."

Strode, who coordinated the removal of
220,000 cubic meters of material in three months,
said one acute problem emerged when he tried to
demolish buildings. Property records were either
destroyed in the quake or never existed at all —
and without an owner's consent, it was difficult to
remove the debris. Another problem: Strode
would often receive approval to demolish, say, a
public building such as.a hospital or a school —
but nearby homes would be put at risk.

"You cannot wantonly go in and demolish," he
said. ""There's:a liability i issue. '

Strode told of a multistory hospital that had
pancaked; an elderly woman living precariously
close to the debris was scared that the hospital
demolition would also take down her home.

"She shouldbe scared," Strode said. "This is
dangerous stuff."

Strode is no longer doing rubble removal. The
grant money ran out, and has not yet been
renewed.

Another hurdle: dumping the debris.

While many private landowners and others

are dumping the rubble in the streets, canals or
countryside, there's only one place. in all of Haiti
where NGOs using U.S. money can take conta-
minated rubble. It is an approved and environ-
mentally surveyed site.

"Not all rubble is the same," said Michael
Zamba, the spokesman for the Pan American
Development Foundation. "There's a lot of con-
taminated rubble with human remains in it. It
can't go in a standard landfill."

Zamba points out that before the earthquake,
Haiti was the least developed country in the
hemisphere — so it's not that surprising that
recovery is slow.

"Haiti is a really expensive place to work —
you have to ship im gas, vehicles, people," he
said. "But. you clean up the rubble in a neigh-
borhood, and it transforms it. Life comes back."

Report says Bahamas | an
anti-human trafficking

However country making ‘significant
efforts’ to comply with standards



THE Bahamas demonstrated

only minimal. efforts when it came . |

to anti-human trafficking law
enforcement and protecting victims
of trafficking over the last year.

This, according to the 2010 Traf-
ficking in Persons (TIP) Report on:

the Bahamas to the United States
Congress.

However, the report stated that
while the Bahamian government

still does not fully comply with the.

minimum standards for the: elimi-
nation of human trafficking, it is
making significant efforts to do so.

Awareness

_ Following the release of this
year’s report, the Bahamian gov-

ernment condemned all forms of °

human trafficking and is making
preparations to create public aware-

ness on'such issues, the Ministry of .

Foreign Affairs said.

The report alleges that the
Bahamas is a. “destination country
for men and some women from
Haiti and other, Caribbean coun-
tries who are. subjected to traffick-
ing in persons, specifically forced
labour, and, to a lesser extent,
women from Jamaica and other
countries who are in forced prosti-
tution.”

_ Last week, Brent Symonette,
Deputy Prime Minister and Minis-
ter of Foreign Affairs and Immi-
gration, met with Amy Rofman,

Officer of the United States Depart-.

ment Office to Monitor and Com-
bat Trafficking of Persons, to dis-
cuss the 2010 TIP Report.

Under the 2000 Trafficking Vic-
tims Protection Act:(TVPA), the
United States Secretary of State is
required to submit to Congress an

NEAR

annual report referred to as the TIP
Report. The main objective of the
report is to stimulate action and to
create partnerships around the
‘world in the fight against modern
day slavery. :

Since the 2009 TIP report, coun-
tries‘established as a country of ori-
gin, transit or destination for vic-
tims of severe forms of trafficking
are included in the report and are
assigned to three tiers. The
Bahamas is classified as a Tier 2
country. Sy :

In the report, Haitian trafficking

victims have been noted as targets -

for forced labour in agriculture,
domestic service. or forcéd prosti-
tution, while Jamaican and other

_ foreign women are reportedly sub- .”

ject to forced prostitution.
Based on the contents of thé

report, luring mechanisms such as —

offers of employment serve as a

‘means to facilitate acts. of human

trafficking, particularly in the lat-
ter case.
“Despite the accusations, the

Bahamas condemns all forms of

human trafficking and maintains

- that by virtue of Article 3 of the
Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and _

Punish Trafficking in Persons, Espe-
cially Women and Children, inci-
dences of employer coercion can-
not by itselfbe termed as an office
of human trafficking, nor.is it evi-
dence that persons are being traf-
ficked,” the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs said.

It added, “The Bahamas, while
noting the recommendation that it
ought to take steps to identify pos-
sible trafficking victims among
migrants attempting to enter the
Bahamas illegally, queries this rec-
ommendation within.the context of

REPORT MEETING: On Thursday, September 2, Brent Symonette, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign

“Additionally, the Bahamas

queries the critique that the gov-
ernment made minimal efforts to
_ prosecute trafficking offenders con-

sidering that under Protocol, human:

trafficking offences are victim dri-

ven and that successful prosecutions

in human trafficking cases require

the positive participation of such
* victims.”

Legislation

Given the context of the provi-
sions of Bahamian legislation,
which is acknowledged in the
report as affording immunity to
and protection of trafficking vic-
tims, the ministry said it should
be noted that if victims of traf-
ficking were to be identified, the
issue is always whether or not they
will be prepared to provide the
evidence necessary to sustain a
prosecution.

“The Ministry of Social Devel-
opment is already making prepara-
tion to create public awareness on
the issue of human trafficking,” the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

THE last time The Tribune

school for children with disabil-
ities in Abaco, she said the insti-
tution could not afford the cost
of providing special computer
software for the 100-strong stu-
dent body.

This all changed last week
when two leading computer
companies — Lignum Technolo-
gies and Bahamas WiMax —
donated a state-of-the-art com-
puter lab to the school.

Thanks to the new equipment,
the students will now. be able to
handle a number of tesponsibil-
ities formerly undertaken by a
volunteer, such as e-mailing
newsletters to supporters and
donors to keep them informed
of their progress and on-campus

Ward is the Chairman of the
NIB Board at present.

The allegations were made
by Golden Gates MP Shane
Gibson in the House of Assem-
bly during Opposition question
time. '

Mr Gibson said: “If is my
understanding that there are
two members of the National
Insurance Board who are either
still members or former mem-

MP claims two NIB directors ‘resigning’

bers who resigned their posi-
tions to be able to get contracts
with National Insurance. That
they were privy to confidential

information as a result of them |:

being board members and so
they have either resigned or are
in the process of resigning in
order to sign contracts with
National Insurance. Is the Min-
ister responsible for National

Insurance aware of anything
like that?”

Mr Ingraham responded: “I
wish’to advise the member for

Golden Gates that the Chair- '

man of the National Insurance

Board will see the Minister at
Spm today.”

The National Insurance

+ Board website lists the present

Board of Directors as consisting

Etienne Bowleg, Evan Dean,
Van Diah, Debbie Ferguson,
Nicole Martin, Brian Nutt, John

. Pinder’, Dr Robin Roberts,

Winston Rolle and Dennis
Williams.

A message left for Mr Ward
yesterday was not returned.
Algernon Cargill, the Director
of the NIB; said he would
refrain from commenting until

’ the Minister of National Insur-

ance (Mr Ingraham) responds
further. ‘ ;

FROM page one

that the Member for Golden Gates had
not “properly recalled” what had hap-
pened.

“I did not provide a list or names of
persons being called. I provided a table
which reflected something that was sent
by the then Minister responsible for
Batelco about who he was seeking to
get hired at the place. ‘And I never called
the names. They insisted the list be
tabled. This was not a list of persons
hired by the corporation. This was a list
of persons seeking to be hired by them at
the corporation,” Mr Laing exclaimed.

Row in House

Not taking the matter lightly, Mr Gib-
son got back to his feet and reiterated
that some of these same persons had

telephoned him, concernéd at the fact -

that their names were being bandied
about in Parliament.

Seeking to end the continual back and.
forth on the. matter, Prime Minister:
Hubert Ingraham joined the discussion

and told Parliamentarians that in his 34
years in Parliament, it was not the com-

mon practice for such revelations to be

made in the House of Assembly. While
clarifying that his government has no

fundamental objection in doing so, Mr
Ingraham said, this matter will raise con-
cerns among members in the communi-
ty about “when you were hired, and who
you were hired by.”

“In fact, from a political point of '
view,” Mr Ingraham hinted, “it maybe
to our advantage.” .

In total, some 20 persons were hired at.
ZNS since May 2, 2007, while some, 62
persons were hired for the entire five
years that the PLP were in office from -
May 2, 2002, to May 2, 2007. At the
Bahamas Telecommunications Compa-

ny Limited, 27 persons were hired since

May 2, 2007, compared to 167 hired
between May 2, 2002 and May 2, 2007.

“exceeds levels ever experi-
enced in The Bahamas and is
beyond anything ever contem-
plated by my Government.”

Mr Ingraham said he hoped
that through carrying out the
resolution exercise, it would
allow the public to “garner the
position and sense of the rep-
resentatives of the people
(MPs) on the proposed resort
development” and “ensure that
‘the Bahamian people are fully
informed on the requirements,
consequences and benefits
which are projected to result
for The Bahamas if the devel-
opment proceeds as now pro-
posed by the principals.”

The outstanding issues
between Baha Mar and Scotia
Bank, which led to the delaying
of the vote, refer to the esti-
mated $200 million debt owed
to the bank by Baha Mar, the
extinction of which is a condi-
tion set by the China Export-
Import Bank for the release of
the $2.45 billion term loan facil-
ity that will be used by Baha
Mar to finance the develop-
ment.

“It is expected that all out-
standing ‘matters will be
resolved within the next two-
week period,” said.the Prime
Minister, revealing that Baha .
Matr’s principals are set to meet
with Scotia executives in.
Toronto next week.

“There will be no deal unless
Scotia’s loan is satisfied. Sec-
ondly, there will be no deal
unless the Government of The °

‘Bahamas and the Chinese
Government exchange letters
saying ‘we approve in The
Bahamas’, and we get from the
Chinese Government at the
same time in the next hand, ‘we
approve here’ (China). They
will go ‘hand go, hand come’ -
at the same time and the same
place,” he added.

Speaking about the foreign
workers for Baha Mar’s labour
requirements — forecast as 71
per cent foreign and 29 per cent
Bahamian — will represent a
“complete reversal” of the ratio
of foreign to Bahamian labour
obtained during the construc-
tion of Kerzner International’s
development of Atlantis on
Paradise Island, which saw 30
per cent foreign labour partic-
ipation and 70 per cent
Bahamian.

. “The terms of the funding
obtained by the developers of
the (Baha Mar) resort include a
requirement that the over-
whelming majority, if not vir-
tually all of the workers to be
engaged on the.‘Core Project’,
over the life of the project, be

foreign workers — some 8,150
persons,” Mr Ingraham con-
tinued.

“What must be aatenniiied
is whether this invaluable ben-
efit of skills transfer and
improved exposure to new
technologies can or will occur
in a project where contact
between Bahamians and for-
eign experts is likely to be lim-
ited,” said Mr Ingraham, calling
such a transfer a “basic justifi-
cation” for the admission of
foreign labour.

The Prime Minister noted

- that in addition to these for-

eign labourers, it is! projected
that some 1,200 Bahamians will
be engaged in the construction
of the “non-Core project” - the
new West Bay Street, the new
Commercial Village and the
initial site preparation for the
“Core Project”, the resort itself.
Mr Ingraham outlined projects
with contracts potentially total-
ly $175 million which he said
will, or are intended tobe,
reserved for Bahamian con-
tractors. Baha Mar Vice Presi-
dent of Public Affair Robert
Sands said this figure is likely to
end up being around $250 mil-
lion.

“J have been advised that the
principals of Baha Mar are in
discussion with their Chinese:
partners and financiers with a
view to additionally, engaging
Bahamian contractors in a

“number of ‘trade packages’

related to the Core Project to
include general site clearing
and preparatory work, mason-
ry, dry wall, ceilings, painting,
electrical, mechanical, site secu-
rity, fencing, beach restoration,
remediation, and landscaping
having a total estimated value
of $40 million.

“Tt is further expected that
many of these jobs will carry
over to continued employment
in the ‘trade packages’ for the
Core Project I mentioned. This
we are informed is expected to
result in the engagement of
3,300 Bahamians at the height
of construction of the Core
Project,” he said.

The Prime Minister also
spoke to other. key components

of the project, which he said.

the government had an “oblig-
ation” to make clear to the
public. Primary among these is
the transfer of a large amount
of Government -owned Crown
land from Government to the
Baha Mar developers.

The total amount of land’

which would be transferred —

Dr Duane Sands mentioned as
nossible Long Island candidate

be the FNM’s candidate of choice

for the area.
“During the course of my dis-

cussions throughout the length -

and breath of Long Island in
meeting with leading FNM gen-
erals and personalities, and social
and community leaders, I dis-
cussed a range of options with
these persons in terms of their
views about the present candi-
date, and their views about any
names that have been knocking
around.

“But the fact is no particular
candidacy was discussed. As far
as I am aware the present Mem-

with this transfer taking place
before any construction occurs,
according to conditions set by
Baha Mar’s financiers, the Chi-
nese Exim Import Bank —
totals 265 acres.

This encompasses parcels of :

land that include the old Hob-
by Horse Hall, land occupied
by the Wyndham Hotel and
Casino, the Nassau Beach
hotel, Fidelity Bank, the Cecil
Wallace-Whitfield Centre, the

Cable Beach Police Station,

Old West Bay Street, part of

’ Gladstone Road, Prospect

Ridge, Water and Sewerage
Corporation property and
BEC property.

Laying out the extent of the .

proposed development, the

‘Prime Minister noted that it is

set to be valued at $2.5 billion
and will comprise six hotels

_with approximately 3,500

rooms and condominiums, an
approximately 100,000sq ft casi-
no, 200,000sq ft of convention
facilities, a 20-acre beach and
pool experience, an 18-hole
golf course and a 60,000sq ft
retail village and additional res-
idential products.

The resolution tabled by the

~ Prime Minister stated that part

of the reason for the proposed
involvement of the foreign
labour component is the
demand for “completion of the
Project on a highly accelerated
schedule.”

“Baha Mar has specified-that
the aggregate number of non-
Bahamians required over the
course of the construction
phase is 8,150 with the peak
number at any given time being
5,000 non-Bahamians,” stated
the Prime Minister.

The resolution also added
that “the project, if undertaken
as proposed, will have immense
impact on the economy of The
Bahamas creating approxi-
mately 3,000 construction jobs
in addition to 7,000 new per-
manent jobs for Bahamians.”

Prime Minister Ingraham
noted that he felt a “more
appropriate time” for this to
happen would be on Wednes-
day, September 22, or Thurs-
day, September 23, when cur-
rently “unresolved matters”
between Baha Mar and Scotia
Bank are dealt with.

Speaking with the media
after parliament adjourned,
Opposition leader Perry
Christie said he was “intrigued
by the manner which the Prime
Minister presented” the infor-
mation to parliament, claiming

Mr Ingraham “presented the -

facts in the most negative way
he could portray it.”

Mr Christie echoed what
Baha Mar spokesman Mr
Sands also told the media in a
separate interview immediate-
ly following Mr Ingraham’s
presentation, which is that the
peak figure of 5,000 foreign
labourers would maintain for

‘No Baha Mar vote’ until Company resolves | ISSUE

only around six months during
the height of the four-year con-
struction period.

Mr Sands noted that the
‘average number of foreign
workers to be present at any
given time “is less than 1,900
per month over the life of the
project.”

Mr Christie added: “Cer-
tainly there will be a substantial
foreign labour component
because this is phase one, phase
two, phase three plus phase
four of Atlantis rolled into one.

’ This project is a huge project

that is being contemplated so it

is like looking at the entire.
’ Atlantis project taking place at

one time, plus more.”

The PLP leader said law-
makers are faced with the
“challenge” of how to, address
the question of rising unem-
ployment, school leavers with-
out jobs and criminality.

“There is an urgency for par-
liament to examine the chal-
lenges facing the Bahamian
people and to look at Baha
Mar and this proposal in the
context of the permanent sus-
tainable. contribution it will
make to Bahamians and their
employment,” said Mr Christie,
who nonetheless said his party
is “deeply concerned about
maximising” the contribution
made by Bahamian construc-

tion workers in the develop- ©

ment.

Mr Sands said Baha Mar was
pleased with the developments
in parliament and “is satisfied
that there will be a successful
conclusion to the meetings
between (Baha Mar) and the
Bank of Nova Scotia (so) that
we will be able to move this
project forward for the benefit
of all Bahamians.”

ber of Parliament remains the
Member of Parliament and would
in the absence of anything unto-
ward, or any decision that he chooses to make ata later stage, will
continue to represent the party and run on the party’s ticket as the
party’s candidate. And that is the position as it is.

“Certainly the present Member of Parliament has not
announced, nor has he communicated to me any intention to
demit office or not to seek re-election. And so, 1 certainly did not
have any discussions about any particular person or candidate,
although I listened to what the people had to say as to what their
views were and their hopes for the future would be,” the party
chairman said.

Having spent four days on Long Island last week meeting with
residents and “reconstituting” the party’s association, Mr Bethel
said he has held discussions with a cross-section pf FNM sup- |
porters.

While the names of at least four other persons, other than the
area’s current MP, were discussed “generally”, Mr Bethel said he
had to stress to these persons that Mr Cartwright had not indicat-
ed as 'yet any intentions to demit office. _

“I went to pains to stress that he (Mr Cartwright) has not indi-
cated his intentions not to run, and he is. deserving of our support
while he maintains his position and remains in office. And it is not.
helpful to write anyone’s political obituary when they are in the
land of the political living,” Mr Bethel added.

As to whether such open discussions could point to a possible
split in Mr Cartwright’s support among the party faithful in Long
Island, Mr Bethel said this is not so.

“I spoke with people all over. As one says, I went to the bars and
spoke with the ‘fellas on the street’. I spoke to ordinary persons
there. I spoke to persons at one or two watering holes. I spoke to
persons in the church yard. I went to a funeral, and I went to a
church service. So I spoke to ordinary citizens, and ordinary citizens
will have their ideas.

“But certainly Larry Cartwright remains the MP. He has not indi-
cated any intention not to run. And while there may. be persons,
who for various reasons might say well we may prefer this or we
may prefer that, there is not rift per se.

“Long Island is and remains FNM country and will respect,
and in my view will support the FNM’s candidate who at the pre-
sent time is and is likely to be Larry Cartwright,” he said.

New CAFL commissioner seeks to ‘refine’ league’s structure

By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter
rdorsett@tribunemedia.net

A CONTROVERSIAL end to
the 2009-10 season sets the stage for
a new administration in the Com-
‘monwealth American Football

League (CAFL), headed by a com- °

missioner seeking to “refine” the
structure of the league.

Dr Lynwood Brown will be
appointed as the new commissioner
of the CAFL for its upcoming sea-
son, seeking to reshape the admin-
istration and steer the league in a
positive direction.

“Despite what people may think,
this league actually has a very sound
structure in place,” he said. “What
my administration will look to do is

to refine that structure and direct
the league in a manner that will be
beneficial to its participants.”:

Last season’s championship title
game was never decided on the field
as the league’s top teams, the John
Bull Jets and the Orry J Sands Pros,
could not reach an agreement on
when to stage the championship
game.

The original date was re-sched-
uled by the Jets due to a prior com-
mitment from several team mem-
bers, setting off a seriés of events
which included the resignation of
league administrators, and a lengthy
debate over when the game would
be played.

Dr Brown, who previously served
as commissioner from 2002-04, said
his administration would seek

greater organizational structure and

’ provide chances at training and cer-
- tification for its coaches and referees.

“We want to host more interna-
tional events, and training opportu-
nities for our coaches and referees in
an effort to improve the product on
the field,” he said.

“We want to create a revenue gen-
erating league, and a more fan-
friendly environment for our spec-
tators, which would go a long way in
positively raising the profile of the
local league as it progresses.”

The CAFL sported four teams last
season, including. the Jets, Pros, V8
Fusion Stingrays, Defence Force
Destroyers and Kingdom Warriors.

Dr Brown said another of his goals
is for league expansion and re-estab-
lishing a connection with the league

in Grand Bahama.
“Expansion is something we are
interested in as we look to add more

' teams. We want to build a true part-

nership with the northein league in
Grand Bahama, not just in name but
in practice as well and look to incor-
porate them as more functioning
members of the league.”

Like other local sporting bodies
throughout the Bahamas, Dr Brown
said the CAFL will look to improve
its youth movement and garner
interest in a younger generation of
players, creating a farm system and
providing academic opportunities
abroad.

“My vision and dream is to ulti-
mately place more young students

_into high schools and universities in

the US through the opportunities

football can provide. The key to
attracting more young people and a
younger generation to the game is
education.

“We have to make an effort to
bring a greater understanding of the
game to parents, and teach them
that it’s not simply a violent smash-
mouth game of injuries,” he said.

“With professional players like
Devard Darling and Alex Smith
hosting their clinics like they do the
exposure of the game continues to
grow to a younger crowd. In the near
future we want to establish a rela-
tionship and reach out to the Min-
istry of Sports to establish a flag
league in schools as an early intro-
duction to the game.”

‘The CAFL season is scheduled to
kickoff in October.

LEMONT; Ill. (AP) — His
swing was a mess, and so was
his marriage.

Tiger Woods figured he
could only deal with one
problem at a time. In this
case, golf had to wait its turn.

"Let's just say I've been
through a lot lately, and I did-
n't want to have any more
information," Woods said
Wednesday at the BMW
Championship. "I was trying
to get adjusted to my new life
and what that entailed, and it
was enough as it was. I didn't
have time to work on my
game. I was dealing with a lot
of other things."

‘In what turned out to be a
lost summer in the majors,
Woods tried to patch togeth-
er what he could with his golf
swing. His only teacher was a
video camera and his memo-
ry, and that wasn't nearly
enough to get him through
four rounds at Pebble Beach
and St Andrews, or the PGA
Championship. at Whistling
Straits.

The do-it-yourself approach
gave way to working with
Sean Foley, the Canadian-
born swing coach who again
was with Woods for an hour
during his pro-am at Cog Hill
for the BMW. Championship.

Foley first took video of
Woods a month ago at the
PGA Championship. Woods

_ already is seeing results. He

opened with a season-best 65
at The Barclays and wound
up with a tie for 12th. Last
week at the Deutsche Bank

‘Championship, Woods had

three rounds in the 60s for the
first time this year and tied
for 11th.

A top 10 for Woods used
to be called a slump. Now it's
progress.

He needed both results just
to keep playing in the FedEx
Cup playoffs, which have
reached the third round and
perhaps the most critical.
Woods went from 112th to

‘65th after the first round, and

to 51st after the second round.

That at least got him to Cog
Hill with the rest of the top 70
in the FedEx Cup standings.

Woods is the defending
champion and a five-time win-
ner at this public course in the
Chicago suburbs, winning last
year with a 62-68 weekend to
finish eight shots ahead of the
field.

"It's good to be back,"
Woods said, pausing to smile
before adding, "It's even bet-
ter to be in the event."

He thrives on this kind of
course, although he already
has shown this year that past
performance is meaningless
without a swing he can trust
and a good putting stroke. A
two-time winner at St
Andrews, he tied for 23rd. A
seven-time winner at: Fire-
stone, he had the worst tour-
nament of his career and fin-
ished at 18-over par.

Now that Woods appears
to be on an upward trend, this
week could be interesting.

"I'm headed in the right
direction," Woods said when
asked what a victory would
mean at this stage in his sea-
son. "It obviously would be a

PEYTON MANNING

Colts’ Manning
will adapt to
Tew rules —

INDIANAPOLIS (AP)
.— Peyton Manning is
ready to play by the NFL's
new rules on positioning
of the umpire.

Manning told reporters
Wednesday that the Indi-
anapolis Colts would
"adjust" to the new tweaks
announced a day earlier.

Manning and the Colts
were critical of how the

rules were enforced dur-
ing a preseason game at.
Green Bay almost two
weeks ago. The four-time
league MVP drew two
-penalties for illegal snaps
in that game.

Since then, the league
has modified the rules
twice. The umpire now
only has to be beyond the
deepest player in the
offensive backfield, not
established in position
before the ball is snapped.

Officials also have dis-
cretion to give the offense
a warning before penaliz-
ing the team. Manning said

that would only be done
- out of the "goodness of the
- Officials’ hearts."

Marshall gives
young Henne

TIA UU NI eee

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — A sheepish Chad Henne recalls
attempting the sort of desperation pass a young college quar-
terback would try: Under pressure, on his heels, heaving a

prayer to a tall teammate in the end zone.
_ More than once, Braylon Edwards came down with the ball
for a Michigan touchdown.

The same play might be in the Miami Dolphins' playbook,
now that Brandon Marshall's on the roster.

He's the Dolphins' most talented receiver since Irving Fryar
more than 15 years ago, easing Henne's burden going into his
first full season as an NFL starter. It begins Sunday at Buffalo.

Henne knows how to make the most of a big target. In 2004,
when he was a freshman and Edwards was a senior at Michigan,
they connected for 15 touchdowns. sg

using on Bengals,

not getting new deal

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. .
(AP) — Tom Brady says he's

_not thinking about a new con-
tract and is focusing on

preparing for the season
opener.

The current deal for the
New England Patriots quar-
terback expires after this sea-
son.

He said Wednesday he
loves.playing for the team but
has learned not to assume
anything and just wants to
focus on playing football.

Brady suffered. a season-
ending knee injury in the 2008
opener.

A contract agreement
before Sunday's first game
against the Cincinnati Ben-
gals would provide security
even if he's hurt again.

He said that getting a new
deal by Sunday isn't part of
his thoughts and he doesn't
know if he'll have one by the
end of the season. He said he
has a responsibility to the
team to focus on Sunday's
game.

Milk does a body good,
especially athletes

LONDON (AP) — At the
end of nearly every training
session, Matt Whitmore
downs a pint of milk straight
from the bottle.

"I do it pretty religiously,"
said Whitmore, 25, a gym
trainer in London. He first
started drinking milk after
exercise about 10 years ago

when he couldn't afford:

expensive supplements or
protein shakes. "Milk helps

me recover faster and I feel’

great afterwards," he said.

"And now, I hate to train .

without it."

Researchers are giving sci-

entific support to a view that
Whitmore vouches for from
experience: that milk may be
just as good or even better
than sports drinks for serious
athletes recovering from exer-
cise. The health benefits of
milk - which has carbohy-
drates, electrolytes, calcium
and vitamin D - have long
been established. But for ath-
letes, milk also contains the
two proteins best for rebuild-
ing muscles: casein and whey.

Muscles get damaged after
an intense bout of aerobic
exercise like running, playing
football, or.cycling. The casein
and whey proteins in milk are
precisely what the body needs
to regenerate muscles fast.

Glenys Jones, a nutrition-

“ist at Britain's Medical
Research Council, said milk's
protein content makes it an
ideal post-exercise drink.
"Milk provides the building
blocks for what you need to
build new muscles," said
Jones, who has no ties to the
dairy industry.

She said sports drinks main-
ly replace lost carbohydrates
and electrolytes, and don't
usually have the necessary
nutrients for muscles to regen-
erate themselves. —

Experts have generally
been divided over whether
milk outperforms sports
drinks. Dairy producers have
been eager to break into the
multibillion-dollar market,
often sponsoring research into
milk's athletic benefits that
some call biased. So,the
debate continues, but milk has
been getting a lot of atten-
tion.

Ina study published in the

milk following a training session at a gym in central London.

journal Applied Physiology,
Nutrition and Metabolism in
June, researchers found peo-
ple who drank milk after

_ training were able to exercise

longer in their next session
than people who had sports
drinks or water.

"It's the form of the carbo-
hydrate and the nutrients in
milk that is most important,"
said Emma Cockburn, a lec-
turer in sports coaching at
Northumbria University. in
northeast England who led
the study, which was partially
paid for by the dairy indus-
try. .
Cockburn advised athletes
to drink milk immediately
after working out. "The dam-
age caused:by exercise leads
to a breakdown of the pro-
tein structures in your mus-
cles, but that doesn't happen
until 24 to 48 hours later," she
said. If athletes drink milk
right after training, then by
the time it is digested, the
milk's nutrients are ready to
be absorbed by the muscles
that have been hurt.

Drinking milk also may
help athletes recover quicker
if they are performing multi-
ple times in a day. For people
who can't stomach the idea

of plain milk, experts recom-
mend adding some chocolate
or other artificial flavor. At
the Beijing Olympics, six-time
gold medallist Michael Phelps.
regularly downed a flavored
milk drink in between races.

Scientists at Loughborough
University have found low-
fat milk is better than sports
drinks for replacing fluids lost
during exercise. Scientists sus-
pect there may be two rea-
sons for that. Not only does
milk have’a lot of electrolytes,
but it is emptied from the
stomach more slowly than
sports drinks, keeping the
body hydrated for longer.

Though the vitamins and
proteins found in milk are
present in soy milk or dietary
supplements, experts say milk
has better proportions of
those nutrients.

Milk also may help athletes
shed fat and build muscle. In a
small Canadian study, experts
found women who drank milk
after lifting weights gained
about 4.4 pounds (2 kilos) of
muscle and lost about the
same amount of body fat.
Women who drank sports
drinks put on about 3.3
pounds (1.5 kilos) of muscle
but didn't lose any body fat.

"It may be that somie of the
components of milk - the pro-
tein, the vitamin D and the
calcium - act in a synergistic
fashion to promote fat loss,"
said Stuart Phillips, a profes-
sor of kinesiology at McMas-
ter University who led the
research. Phillips has advised
the Canadian Olympic Asso-
ciation about milk and the
dairy industry paid for part of
his research. .

But some experts warned
that drinking milk after exer-
cise isn't for everyone.
Catherine Collins, a spokes-
woman for the British Dietet-
ic Association and a dietician
at London's St George's
Trust, said while milk may be
beneficial for elite athletes
who burn thousands of calo-
ries a day during their inten-
sive training, occasional gym-
goers may be better off drink-
ing. sports drinks or plain

_water.

"If you're just a gym bunny
trying to lose a bit of weight,
water is probably sufficient
after exercise," she said, warn-
ing that chocolate milk in par-
ticular could add unwanted
calories.

At the Vancouver
Olympics, dairy farmers
trucked in about 85,000 extra
quarts (80,000 liters) of choco-
late milk. Canadian athletes
won a record-setting 14 gold
medals. "I don't know if the
milk helped, but it can't have
hurt," Phillips said.

Still, even those who pro- .

mote milk as a recovery drink
say it cannot entirely replace
sports drinks. Because it is
harder to digest, people
should only drink milk after
they are finished exercising,
not during.

In comparison, sports

‘ drinks like Gatorade have

easily digestible sugars so ath-
letes can chug it during events
to get an instant boost.
Whitmore says it may be a
tough sell to persuade people
to swap their sports drinks or
even water, ‘for milk. "Most
gym goers have very particu-
lar routines," he said,
acknowledging he takes a bit
of ribbing for his milk habit
from his rugby teammates.

"They call me the Milky Bar

kid."

retirement

In friendly, Argentina defeats
World Cup winner Spain 4-1

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Argentina strik-
er Carlos Tevez may consider retiring from internation-
al play before the 2014 World ‘Cup in Brazil because of
the physical toll on his body.

The 26-year-old Tevez said he has been worn down by
the exhausting nature of the game and all the league
and national team matches. He has played for Boca
Juniors, Corinthians, West Ham, Manchester United —
and now Manchester City. ;

"I'm tired. I'm 26 — I'm old," Tevez said after scoring
Tuesday in Argentina's 4-1 victory over World Cup win-
ner Spain.

Tevez didn't suggest he would-retire immediately from
international play, which is good news for Argentina as it
prepares to host next year's Copa America — the conti-
nental championship.

"I'm still into it; to play, to be there," he said. "But I
don't know if I will make it until 2014. I don't know. In
reality, I think it will be tough." ;

"To be on the national team you have to be 100 per
cent and play with all you have. I'm not blaming anyone.
It's my issue. It's a physical question. You can't play on
the national team at 60 per cent."

WCup flop France finally
wins in Euro qualifying

By ROB HARRIS
AP Sports Writer

LONDON (AP) — France's recovery from

a humiliating World Cup finally began with a

first win in European Championship qualifying
on Tuesday, while Germany and the Nether-
lands earned second straight victories.

The French had begun with a shock loss in
Group D to Belarus on. Friday, bu} Karim
Benzema and Florent Malouda fired them to
a 2-0 victory at Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Italy and England also put miserable World
Cup campaigns behind them by making it two
wins out of two on the road to Euro 2012. -

Wayne Rooney ended his yearlong goal
drought for England in a 3-1 victory over
Switzerland, while Italy cruised to a 5-0 victo-
ry over the Faeroe Islands.

Miroslav Klose's double helped Germany
beat Azerbaijan 6-1, and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
also netted twice for the Dutch in a 2-1 victo-
ry over Finland.

Meanwhile, newly crowned world champion
Spain was beaten for the first time since South
Africa in a 4-1 friendly loss against Argentina.

Spain, which hadn't conceded four goals for
a decade, was 3-0 down by halftime after goals
from Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain and Car-
los Tevez.

Sergio Aguero added Argentina's fourth in
injury time after Fernando Llorente pulled
one back for Spain, giving interim coach Ser-
gio Batista his second win.

Having lost its last four games, France had
no room for error in Bosnia. But it took until
the 72nd minute for Benzema, who had recov-
ered from a sore ankle, to put the visitors
ahead with a left-footed strike after turning a
defender.

Malouda doubled the French lead six min-
utes later to give Laurent Blanc his first win
since taking over from former coach Raymond
Domenech after the fist-round exit in South
Africa.

"This match summarized all the good things
I saw during our preparations but that we
failed to put in place against Belarus," Blanc
said. "It could be the start of something good."

France is third in Group D behind Albania
and Belarus, which both have four points.

_Hamdi Salihi's goal led Albania to a 1-0 win

over Luxembourg, while Belarus was held 0-0
by Romania.

Italy looked a shadow of the side that strug-
gled to beat Estonia 2-1 on Friday.

At his home ground, Fiorentina's Alberto
Gilardino headed Italy ahead after 11 min-
utes against the Faeroe Islands after 11 min-
utes.

Daniele De Rossi and Antonio Cassano

added further goals before halftime, while sub-

stitute Fabio Quagliarella netted from close
range in the 81st and Pirlo completed the rout
in the 90th.

Italy has a two-point lead in Group C over
Serbia, which was held to a 1-1 draw by Slove-
nia.

Adam Johnson added another in the 69th,
four minutes after Swiss right-back Stephan
Lichtsteiner was shown a red card for fouling
James Milner. eee

Switzerland, but Darren Bent sealed England's

win with his first international goal.

England tops. Group G on goal difference
ahead of Montenegro, which beat Bulgaria 1-
0 thanks to Elsad Zverotic's long-range shot.

Unlike their European rivals, the Portuguese
are still not over their World Cup woes. With
coach Carlos Queiroz suspended for six
months for insulting anti-doping officials, the
team lost 1-0 to Norway, having only man-
aged a 4-4 draw with Cyprus last week.

Norway tops Group H, while Denmark
moved up to second by beating Iceland 1-0 in
its first qualifier after Thomas Kahlenberg’
injury-time goal.

Germany's 6-1 victory over Azerbaijan
keeps it ahead of Turkey in Group A on goal
difference. Turkey beat 10-man Belgium 3-2
after defender Vincent Kompany was sent off
for a second booking.

Olof Mellberg's 34th-minute sending off
made no difference to Sweden, which was
already leading 3-0 and went on to thrash San
Marino 6-0 to go top of Group E.

The Netherlands are second having also

Serbia knocks
defending

champ Spain

out of worlds

By BRIAN MAHONEY
AP Basketball Writer

ISTANBUL (AP) — Serbia knocked
defending champ Spain out of the world
championship Wednesday when Milos
Teodosic made a long 3-pointer with 3.1
seconds left for a 92-89 quarterfinal victo-
ry.: ;

Spain erased an eight-point deficit in
the final four minutes to tie it on Marc

Gasol's basket with 25 seconds remain- .

ing. After a timeout, Serbia patiently ran
its offense until Teodosic — one of seven
on three-pointers at that point — pulled
up from straightaway, well beyond the
arc.

"He's a great player and he has a great
feeling for the big shot," Spain coach Ser-
gio Scariolo said. ;

The Spaniards couldn't get a final shot
off, with Jorge Garbajosa losing the ball
after a timeout. Serbia's players celebrat-
ed at midcourt as Spain's Sergio Llull
kicked the ball deep into the stands.

"I think it was a very, very tough game.

Maybe the best one until now in Istan-
bul," Serbia coach Dusan Ivkovic said.
_ Avenging a loss in last year's European
championship game, Serbia advanced to
face Turkey or Slovenia in a semifinal
game Saturday.

"It's very difficult to forget this kind of
game, but we have to try to forget every-
thing that happened tonight because in



third time in Turkey. They were without

‘pionship.

two days we will play in the semifinals,"
Teodosic said.

Marko Keselj and Novica Velickovic
scored 17 points apiece for Serbia, while
Dusko Savanovic added 15. The Serbians
were 15 of 30 from three-point range,
exploiting the zone seemingly every time
Spain used it.

"We were not able to stop them on the
long shots," Spain guard Juan Carlos
Navarro said. "That's why we lost and I
believe that's why they deserved to win.".

Navarro scored 27 points and Garba-
josa, the former Toronto Raptors forward
who recovered from a severe leg injury,
added 18.

But the Spaniards, considéred the co-
favourites along with the United States
coming into the tournament, lost for the

their best player, Lakers All-Star Pau
Gasol, then lost point guard Jose Calderon
of the Raptors shortly before the tourna-
ment. ‘

The champions in Japan four years ago
now will be forced to qualify for the 2012
Olympics at next year's European cham-

Teodosic, one of the two Serbia players
suspended for a brawl in an exhibition
game against Greece, finished with 12
points. Center Nenad Krstic of the Okla-
homa City Thunder, the other suspended
Serb, finished with 13 points and nine
rebounds.

UN officials: About 500 women raped in Congo in July, August

By NEIL MacFARQUHAR

UNITED NATIONS —
Approximately 500 women
were raped in eastern Congo
in July and August, demon-
strating that both rebel militias
and government troops used
sexual violence as a weapon,
two senior United Nations offi-
cials said Tuesday, according to
the New York Times News Ser-
vice.

Since U.N. officials first dis-
closed late last month that large
numbers of women had been
gang-raped, the number report-
ed has grown, to 242 victims:
from at least 150 concentrated
in 13 villages in North Kivu
Province, including 28 minors.

But Atul Khare, the deputy
head of peacekeeping and the
senior official sent from U.N.
headquarters to investigate,
told the Security Council on
Tuesday that at least 257 more
women had been raped else-
where in North Kivu and South
‘Kivu provinces, for a total of
at least 499 victims.




LS? ipereek be Oa tate eas ay

who leads a néw U.N. office
concentrating on sexual vio-
lence in armed conflict, told the
Council that the rapes in the
villages in North Kivu -"were
not an isolated incident but part
of a broader pattern of wide-
spread systematic rape and pil-
lage."

She cited horrific accounts
from women attacked around
Kibua, a village in North Kivu,
that militiamen shoved their
hands inside women's sexual
organs to look for hidden gold
and that the village was sur-
rounded so that no one could
run away. Both U.N. officials
said that the organization must
work harder to bring the per-
petrators or their commanding
officers to trial. They also said
that the United Nations must
be more active in trying to pre-
vent rapes as soon as they hear
that rebel fighters are on the
move.

The first reports of clashes
came in late July, but it took
weeks for word of the large
number of rapes to emerge.

The latest victims include 21
girls between 7 and 21 years
old, and six men, he said.

"Our actions were not ade-
quate, resulting in unacceptable
brutalization of the population
of the villages of the area," he
said of the peacekeeping mis-
sion, while noting that ulti-
mately the protection of civil-
ians was the job of the govern-
ment of the Democratic
Republic of Congo.

Over 15,000 rapes were
reported annually in both 2008
and 2009, Khare said. The latest
reported include 10 rapes car-
ried out in August by govern-
ment soldiers, attacks that have
been referred to a military pros-
ecutor.

The Security Council will
remain focused on the issue to
try to better understand the
underlying causes, said Susan
E. Rice, the American ambas-
sador to the United Nations.
The rapes occur in villages near
the transit routes for the lucra-
tive trade in illegally extracted
minerals. Margot Wallstrom,

KINGSTON (PANOS) -
The Jeffrey Town massive

were a jumping’ mass of

colours as they danced to the
tunes of their favourite
entertainers at the Voices
for Climate Change Educa-
tion Project’s third commu-
nity intervention in St. Mary
recently.

“This is truly one of the
best concerts I have been to
in a while,” said Marcia

munity member, who loudly
screamed for more from the
Climate Champions. *

Among the group of
entertainers who rocked the
stage at Jeffrey Town were
2006 and 2008 rising stars
winners One Third and
Cameal Davis, Lloyd Lovin-
deer and Pam Hall. Also
among the acts were upcom-
ing artistes Fyah Juice,
Amique, Pampi Judah and

Heather Harding also
known as Boom Dawn. Jef-
frey Town also saw perfor-
mances from their own DJ
Itamari, Turban and their
reigning Farm Queen Olivia
Derrett.

The Climate champions
are among a group of over
24 entertainers, including
Tony Rebel, Gem Myers,
Queen Ifrika, Omari and
others who are a part of the
Vaices for Climate Change
Education project.

Workshops

These artistes have attend:
ed workshops and recorded
songs aimed at educating the
population on issues relat-
ing to climate change, The
concert was emceed by vet-
éran broadcaster Pattick
Lafayette and rising stars
sweetheart K’Alee.

The day started with a tree

planting exercise where the
Voices for Climate ‘Change
Education artistes and
youngsters from the com-
munity planted over ten
shade trees in the school
yard at the Jeffrey Town Pri-
mary School. The trees were
donated by the Forestry
Department of Jamaica.
Immediately following the
tree-planting was a discus-
sion on the farming commu-
nity’s knowledge of climate
change issues and an inter-
active session with Michael
Myles from the National
Environment and Planning
Agency (NEPA) on practis-

_es that can be adopted to

protect the environment.

FIGHTING in the Somali capital has
killed more than 230 people in the past two
weeks and fleeing civilians are so desper-
ate they are giving away their last posses-
sions for seats on a bus out of the city, U.N.
officials said, according to Associated Press.

The continuous fighting started Aug. 23
after the militant group al-Shabab threat-
ened a "massive" war against government
forces, who are backed by African Union
peacekeepers.

The U.N. says some 230 people have been
killed, 400 wounded and at least 23,000 dis-
placed since fighting began and that civilians

who remained were too frightened to ven-

ture out for food.

On Tuesday, three civilians were killed
in Somalia's capital of Mogadishu and 23
others were wounded, said ambulance ser-
vice director Ali Muse.

Somalia has not had an effective govern-
ment for nearly 20 years. Militants, some
of whom have pledged allegiance to al-Qai-
da, are trying to overthrow Somalia's weak,
U.N.-backed government and install a harsh
interpretation of Islamic law. The conflict is
also complicated by clan rivalries.

"My appeal to the international commu-
nity is not to send Somalis back to south
and central Somalia against their will," said
the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees,
Antonio Guterres, who was beginning a

He did not say which countries were send-

ing Somali refugees back or how many, but
Kenyan security services sometimes deport
Somalis back across'the border.. - -
. Somalia generates the largest number of
refugees in the world after Iraq and
Afghanistan. At the end of August, there
were more than 1.4 million Somalis dis-
placed within the country and more than
614,000 Somali refugees.

Among them was Asha Mohamed Nur,
who fled with her three children in June
after an explosion caused by a rocket-pro-
pelled grenade destroyed her home, killed
her husband and severely burned her leg.

"There is all the time fighting. Hizbul

‘Islam, al-Shabab, government, they are all

fighting," she said, naming the two main
insurgent factions. "Nowhere is safe, not
even your home."

More than 200,000 Somalis are estimated
to have fled their homes this year.

Others, though, say they have nowhere
safer to go. —

"I fled from Mogadishu two times before
— my children were almost dying without
water and food plus the wind, rain, sun and
dust since we did not have a shelter," said
Mohamud Ali, a father of seven who lives in
Howlwadag district south of the city. "I
finally came back to my house waiting my
destiny."

Leonel Sauceda called the attack

in the northern city of San Pedro’

Sula "a massacre." He said the

factory. He said 23 employees
were present and all were either

Also Tuesday, thousands of
supporters of former President
Manuel Zelaya staged street
protests in the capital, Teguci-
galpa, to demand the ousted
leader's return as well as a 15
percent rise in the minimum

Republic, is welcome to return

strations were held in other
cities.

stoning
in [ran
adultery
case
‘brutal’

By FRANCES D’EMILIO
- Associated” Press

Writer

(AP) — The Vatican has
raised the possibility of
using behind-the-scenes
diplomacy to try to save
the life of an Iranian wid-
ow sentenced to be
stoned for adultery.

In its first public state-
ment on the case, which
has attracted worldwide
attention, the Vatican
decried stoning Sunday as
a particularly brutal form
of capital punishment.

Vatican spokesman the
Rev Federico Lombardi
said the Catholic church
opposes the death penal-
ty in general.

It is unclear what
chances any Vatican bid
would have to persuade
the Muslim nation to
spare the woman's life.
Brazil, which has friendly
relations with Iran, was
rebuffed when it offered
her asylum.

Sakineh Mohammadi
Ashtiani was convicted in
2006 of adultery. In July,
Iranian authorities said
they would not carry out
the stoning sentence for
the time being, but the
mother of two could still
face execution by hang-
ing for adultery and other
offenses.

Her son, Sajad, told the
Italian news agency
Adnkronos that he was
appealing to Pope Bene-
dict XVI and to Italy to
work to stop the execu-
tion.

Lombardi told The
Associated Press that no
formal appeal had
reached the Vatican. But
he hinted that Vatican
diplomacy might be
employed to try to save
Ashtiani.

Lombardi said in a
statement that the Holy
See "is following the case
with attention and inter-
est."

"When the Holy See is
asked, in an appropriate
way, to intervene in
humanitarian issues with
the authorities of other
countries, as it has hap-
pened many times in the
past, it does so not ina
public way, but through
_ its own diplomatic chan-
nels," Lombardi said in
the statement.

In one of the late Pope
John Paul II's encyclicals
in 1995, the pontiff laid
out the Catholic Church's
stance against capital pun-
ishment.

John Paul went to bat

es of death-row inmates
in the United States. One
of the first was the case
of Paula Cooper, who was
convicted of murdering
her elderly Bible teacher
when she was 15 but
spared the electric chair
by Indiana in 1989.

But that same year, a
papal appeal for clemency
to Cuba to spare a war
hero and three other
Cuban officers convicted

vatican:| EU decries ‘barbaric’ plans

to stone Iranian woman

By BRIAN MURPHY
and NASSER KARIMI

‘Associated Press Writers

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) —
The international crossfire
over Iran's stoning sentence
for a woman convicted of
adultery intensified Tuesday
with a top European Union
official calling it "barbaric"
and an Iranian spokesman
saying it's about punishing a
criminal and not a human
rights issue.

The sharp words from
both sides provide a snap-
shot of the dispute: Western:
leaders are ramping up pres-
sure to call off the sentence
for Sakineh Mohammadi -
Ashtiani and Iran is framing
it as a matter for its own
courts and society.

The case of the 43-year-
old mother of two also spills

_ over into larger and even

more complex issues for
Iran's Islamic leaders of
national sovereignty and
defense of their system of
justice.

Iranian authorities rou-
tinely defend their legal
codes and human rights
standards as fully developed
and in keeping with the
country's traditions and val-
ues. They have widely
ignored Western denuncia-

- tions over the crackdowns

after last year's disputed
presidential election.

Iranian authorities also
bristle at Western criticism
— including USS. State
Department human rights
reports — and say foreign
governments overlook
shortcomings in their own
systems and fail to hold
Western ally Israel account-
able.

Iran's Foreign Ministry
spokesman, Ramin
Mehmanparast, showed
Tuesday that the Islamic
state was willing to push

-back just as hard as the _
West — atleast with’

rhetoric.

"If release of all those
who have committed mur-' °
der is considered defending
human rights, all European
countries can ... free mur-

derers in'defense of human ~

rights," Mehmanparast told
reporters.

Ashtiani's stoning sen-
tence was put on hold in
July and is now being
reviewed by Iran's supreme
court. Iranian authorities
also say she has been con-
victed of playing a role in
her husband's 2005 murder.

But her lawyer, Houtan
Javid Kian, says she was
never formally put on trial
on the charge of being an
accomplice to murder and
was not allowed to mount a
defense.

At the European parlia-
ment, European Commis-
sion President Jose Manuel
Barroso said he was
"appalled" by the news of
the sentence. .

STONING SENTENCE: This undated file image made available by Amnesty International shows Sakineh
Mohammadi Ashtiani, mother of two who was sentenced to death by stoning in Iran on charges of adul-

tery.

"Barbaric beyond words,"
he said during his first State
of the Union address in
Strasbourg, France.

The case also has been
wrapped up in claims of
Iranian missteps and abuses.

Last month, Iranian
authorities broadcast a pur-
ported confession from Ash-
tiani on state-run television.
A woman identified as Ash-
tiani admitted to being an
unwitting accomplice in her
husband's killing. Kian said

he believes she was tortured

into confessing. .

Then on Monday, Kian
said he received word that
his client was lashed 99
times last week in a separate
punishment after British
newspaper ran a picture of
an unveiled woman mistak-
enly identified as Ashtiani.
The newspaper, the Times
of London, later apologized
for the error.

There was no official Iran-
ian confirmation of the new
punishment.

Iran has given no signal it
will bend easily to interna-
tional appeals. Even an offer
of asylum from Brazil — .

‘which is on friendly terms —

with Tehran — went
nowhere.

The Vatican has hinted of
the possibility of behind-the-
scenes diplomacy to try to

save her life.

French Foreign Minister
Bernard Kouchner called
the stoning sentence "the
height of barbarism." Earli-
er, a hard-line Iranian news-
paper, Kayhan, described
French first lady Carla
Bruni-Sarkozy as.a;" \Prgsti-
tute" for condet
stoning sentence.’

Mehmanparast, the For-
eign Ministry spokesman,
said the insult was not sanc-
tioned by the government.

USS. officials have so far
let European allies lead the
way over the case, prefer-
ring to keep up efforts to
enforce tighter U.N. and
American sanctions over
Iran's nuclear program. But
Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton said last
month that Washington
remains "troubled" by the
case and Ashtiani's "fate is
unclear."

Ashtiani's lawyer sees the
next critical period coming
next week. The moratorium
on death sentences during
the Muslim holy month of
Ramadan will end, and he
worries that an execution
could be then carried out
“any moment."

Stonings of men and
women were widely carried
out in the early years after
the 1979 Islamic revolution.

More recently, the punish-
ment has been imposed | less
frequently, but cases are’
rarely confirmed by authori-
ties and no official records
are released.

In January 2009, Iranian
judiciary, spokesman Ali

» Reza Jamshidi said two men

sthe,, ¥ a ae

convicted of adultery were
‘stoned to death the previous
month in the northeastérn
city of Mashhad.

Iran also reported a death

by stoning in July 2007 for a

man convicted of adultery.
The U.N: human rights chief
at the time, Louise Arbour,
condemned the execution as
a "clear violation of interna-
tional law."

Hangings are frequently
carried out in Iran, whose
legal system is a mix of civil
statutes and Quran-inspired
codes. Magistrates, who are
often Muslim clerics, have
wide latitude on sentences
for crimes that break moral
codes.

In December 2008, Iran-
ian authorities shut down
the office of a human rights
group led by Nobel Peace
Prize winner Shirin Ebadi,
whose efforts included
appeals to ban stonings.
Ebadi has not returned to
Iran since last year's re-elec-
tion of President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad.

iran says it

has the right
fo har UN
inspectors

By NASSER KARIMI
Associated Press Writer

. TEHRAN, Iran (AP) —
Iran's nuclear chief said
Tehran has the right to bar
some UN inspectors from
monitoring its disputed
nuclear programme, the semi-
official ISNA news agency
reported.

Ali Akbar Salehi's com-
ments were in response to a
report‘by the International
Atomic Energy Agency
expressing alarm about Iran's
decision to bar some of its
inspectors.

Iran recently stripped two
inspectors of the right to mon-
itor its nuclear activities after
they reported what they said
were undeclared nuclear
experiments.

ISNA also quoted Salehi as
saying Iran asked the agency
to replace the two and that it
has accepted the replace-
ments.

"This is our right as well as
the right of other members of
the agency to choose the

-inspectors," Salehi said late

Monday. —

"Basically, all member
nations select from.a list pro-
vided by the agency."

While all member states
select inspectors from an offi-
cial IAEA list, some Western
nations on the agency's 35-
nation board argue that
because Iran has banned
more than 40 inspectors over
the past four years,-a case
could be made that Tehran is
violating the agency's so-
called Safeguards Agreement.

The agreement is meant to
ensure that the IAEA can
monitor Iran's nuclear pro-
gramme without impediments
to make sure it is solely for
peaceful purposes.

. The West, led by .the-Unit-
éd States, suspects thafifan's ~
nuclear programme is geared
toward making weapons. Iran
denies the charge, saying the
programme is for peaceful

- purposes only.

Commenting on the latest
JAEA report, French Foreign
Minister Bernard Kouchner,
said it showed that Iran is still
enriching large amounts of
uranium "and this is not good
news."

In Washington, State
Department spokesman PJ
Crowley said the report
underscored the Obama.
administration's concerns
about a possible military
dimension to key aspects of
Iran's nuclear programme,
including uranium enrichment
and a heavy water research
reactor under construction. -

Salehi, also the Islamic
Republic's vice president,
urged the Vienna-based
atomic agency to steer a fair
and neutral course, arguing
that the IAEA's credibility
depended on that.

Meanwhile, Italy's for-

Frattini, told the ANSA
news agency that while
Italy respects Iranian sov-
ereignty and isn't in any
way interfering, "a ges-
ture of clemency from
Iran is the only thing that
can save her."

nomic ties, primarily ener-
gy interests, in Iran.

China calls in Japan

envoy over boat collision

John Lennon's killer is
again denied parole in NY

BUFFALO, N.Y.

John Lennon's killer was again denied parole in New York,
nearly 30 years after gunning down the ex-Beatle outside the
musician's New York City apartment building, according to Asso-
ciated Press. A parole board decided not to release Mark David
Chapman after interviewing him Tuesday by teleconference at
Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York.

It was Chapman's sixth appearance before the board since
becoming eligible for parole in 2000. He will be eligible again in
2012. °

Chapman, 55, had been scheduled to appear last month, but the
hearing was postponed by parole officials, who said at the time they
were.awaiting additional information. They did not elaborate.

After Tuesday's decision, the board wrote to Chapman that it
remains concerned about "the disregard you displayed -for the
norms of our society and the sanctity of human life when, after care-
ful planning, you travelled to New York for the sole purpose of
killing John Lennon."

The panel said "release remains inappropriate at this time and °
incompatible with the.welfare of the community."

Among those who have opposed his release is Lennon's now 77-
year-old widow, Yoko Ono, who said last month that she believed
Chapman is a potential threat to her family and perhaps himself.

INSPECTION: In this photo released by Japan Coast Guard, a Finan Coast Guard boat, foreground, goes by a Chinese fishing boat which Japan
Coast Guard officers are on board for inspection after it collided with two Japanese patrol vessels near a chain of disputed islands known as
Senkaku in Japanese or Diaoyu in Chinese in the East China Sea, Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2010. The collisions occurred near the islands claimed by
both countries after the ship received repeated warnings from Japan’s coast guard to move out of the waters, officials said.

CHI-CHI ZHANG,
Associated Press Writer
BEWING

Diplomatic tensions between China
and Japan escalated Wednesday when
Beijing called in Japan's ambassador
after a Chinese fishing boat collided
with two Japanese patrol'vessels near a
chain of disputed islands and Tokyo
arrested the boat's captain, according
to the Associated Press.

Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Song
Tao summoned Japanese Ambassador
Uichiro Niwa and urged Japan to stop
the "illegal interception" of Chinese
fishing boats, the official Xinhua News
Agency reported late Tuesday.

In Tokyo, Japan Coast Guard
spokeswoman Akane Yonemori said
Wednesday that the 41-year-old Chi-
nese captain of the fishing boat had
been arrested for allegedly obstruct-
ing public duties in connection with
Tuesday's collision near the chain of
islands in the East China Sea. She gave
no further details.

No injuries were reported from the
two separate collisions that occurred

within 40 minutes, Japan Coast Guard

spokesman Yosuke Oi said. The two ..

Japanese patrol vessels sustained minor
damage. It was unclear if the PISS
ship was damaged.

The collisions happened in Japan-
ese territorial waters off the north-
western coast of Japan's Kuba island,
just north of uninhabited, disputed
islands known as Senkaku in Japan-
ese and Diaoyu in Chinese. About 120
miles (190 kilometers) east of Taiwan,

the islands are controlled by Japan but :

are also claimed by China and Taiwan.

Inspection

The collisions occurred after the
Japanese patrol vessels ordered the
Chinese ship to stop for an inspection
over alleged violation of international
fishing laws after it repeatedly ignored
earlier warnings to: exit the: area, Oi
said.

The Chinese trawler, carrying a crew
of 15, first collided with the Japanese
patrol boat Yonakuni, slightly damag-
ing its stern. About 40 minutes later,

den turn and collided into another

.patrol vessel, the Mizuki, causing a

dent on its starboard side and damag-

‘ing its railings, Oi said.

Jiang Yu, a spokeswoman for Chi-
na's Foreign Ministry, told a regular
news conference Tuesday that Beijing
had been in contact with Japan over
the.incident and was concerned about
the situation.

Jiang said China reiterated its claim
to the Diaoyu Islands and its adjacent
islets and urged Japanese patrol boats
in the area against any "so-called law
enforcement activities or any actions
that would jeopardize Chinese fishing
boats or Chinese people."

"We are keeping a close eye on the
developments and reserve the right to
make a further response," she said.

Japanese officials do not believe the
boat is carrying any activists attempting
to make a political statement on the
island, Oi said. Japan has lodged a
protest with China several times over
the entry of Chinese vessels into waters
near the islands. Activists from Hong
Kong and Taiwan have also sailed to
the islands to make territorial claims.

‘| Iraq displays hundreds
of recovered artifacts

By BARBARA SURK
Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq

displayed hundreds of recoy-
ered artifacts Tuesday that
were among the country's
looted heritage and span the
ages from a 4,400-year-old
statue of a Sumerian king to a
chrome-plated AK-47 bear-
ing Saddam Hussein's image.

The 542 pieces are among
the most recent artifacts
recovered from a heartbreak-
ing frenzy of looting at muse-
ums and archaeological sites
after the.2003 U.S.-led inva-
sion and in earlier years of
war and upheaval. The thefts
swept a stunning array of
priceless antiquities into the
hands of collectors abroad.

So far, 5,000 items stolen
since 2003 have been recov-
ered. And culture officials
said they hoped the display
would encourage more
nations to cooperate in the
search for 15,000 pieces still
missing from the Iraqi Nation-
al Museum, one of the sites
worst-hit by looters after the
fall of Baghdad seven years
ago.

Museum

The director of the Nation-
al Museum, Amira Alawan,
praised the international com-
munity for helping Iraq find
and recover its cultural her-
itage. But he said not all coun-
tries are cooperating, naming
Spain and Lebanon as among
the nations that have refused
to hand over missing Iraqi
artifacts.

The items displayed at the
Foreign Ministry included
relics of the world's most
ancient civilizations.

The most prominent was
the headless statue of a king

-from the ancient Sumerian

civilization, which is more
than 4,000 years old. It was
discovered in the 1920s at the

ancient city of Urin southern .

Iraq and was stolen from the
National Museum.

The FBI listed its theft.

among the world's top 10 art
crimes. Experts say the statue,
carved from black diorite with
cuneiform inscriptions along
the back and the shoulders,
is the oldest known represen-
tation of an Iraqi monarch.
Officials with the U.S.
Department of Homeland
Security located the statue in
the United States in May 2006

and handed it oyer to_Iraqi

diplomats in Washington two
months later.

Among the newest pieces
of Iraq's recovered past was a
chrome-plated AK-47 with a
pearl hand grip and a small
image of Saddam next to the
gun sight. It was taken from
Iraq to the U.S. as a war tro-
phy by an American solider
who found the rifle during a
2007 raid in Baghdad.

"Today is a celebration in
Iraq. This is bringing back the
civilization and the cultural
heritage of Iraq," said
Mohammed Muhsen Ali,

‘ deputy director of the Nation-

al Museum.

Iraqi and world culture offi-
cials have for years struggled
to retrieve looted treasures
but with little success.

The U.S. military was heav-
ily criticized for not protecting
the National Museum's trove
of relics and art after Bagh-
dad's fall in 2003. Thieves ran-
sacked the collection, steal-
ing or destroying priceless
artifacts that chronicled some
7,000 years of civilization in
Mesopotamia, including the
ancient Babylonians, Sume-
rians and Assyrians.

TO DISCUSS STORIES ON THIS PAGE LOG ON TO WWW.TRIBUNE242.COM

The display also included
more than 5,000-year-old
cylindrical seals used by the
Sumerians to seal written doc-
uments and a centuries-old
pair of golden earrings from
the ancient Assyrian city of
Nimrud, just south of the pre-
sent day northern city of
Mosul.

Earrings

The earrings were discov-
ered in 1988 under the floor
of a palace belonging to an
Assyrian. king. They were
stolen from the National
Museum two years later and
found at’an auction house in
New York in 2009.

The latest recoveries, made
over the'past five years, were
hailed as a great achievement
by government officials who
vowed to continue the battle
to reclaim looted artifacts.

"We will not stop," said
Foreign Minister Hoshyar
Zebari. "We will continue our
efforts in order to return the
last precious pieces to their
legitimate owners."

Iraq's ambassador to the
U.S. Samir Shakir Sumaida'ie
told reporters at the event
that more than 600 pieces
have also been unaccounted
for since last year when they
were transported by the
American military from the
U.S. to. Baghdad and deliv-
ered to the office of the Prime
Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

"We have confirmation
from the U.S. military that the
pieces that include mostly
cylindrical seals reached the
prime minister's office last
year, but until now we have
no information on their cur-
rent location," Sumaida'ie
said. The prime minister's
office could not immediately
be reached for comment.

Hermine oe 4

gives south
Texas
another
tropical
lashing

By PAUL J WEBER
Associated Press Writer

RAYMONDVILLE,
Texas (AP) — Tropical Storm
Hermine gave.a wet and
windy punch to Texas on
Tuesday but left only minor
scrapes in the storm-weary

Rio Grande Valley, which is .

proving resilient this hurri-
cane season after taking a
third tropical system on the
chin.

Hermine lost steam after
crossing into Texas with trop-
ical storm strength. A peeled-
back motel roof in the coastal
farming town of Ray-
mondville and scattered pow-
er outages were. about the
worst leftover from the gusty,
drenching storm that came
and went quickly after creep-
ing up on Texas and Mexico
in the warm Gulf waters over
the long holiday weekend.

"Il think we're lucky. It
could've been worse," said
Art Nelson, sizing up the
hulking aluminum shed that
collapsed on a farming plow
at his John Deere store in
Raymondville.

Mexico didn't get off as
easy. Hermine knocked out
power for several hours in
Matamoros and damaged
about 20 homes, whose inhab-

_itants were among 3,500 peo-
ple who evacuated to shelters.

About 1,000 families were
still in shelters Tuesday morn-
ing. Authorities in Mexico
said there were no reports of
serious injuries or death,
which was welcome news
‘after. 12 people in Mexico
died in flooding caused by
Hurricane Alex earlier this
summer.

Texas also had no reports
of serious injuries, and evac-
uations orders weren't neces-
sary even in the most low-
lying regions. It was another
sigh of relief for the flood-
prone Rio Grande Valley,
which got lashed by Alex at
the start of the summer and
soaked by another tropical
system in July.

So damp is the area that

only last week did Hidalgo .

County finally put away its
last water-pumping machine.
But much of the 5 inches to a
foot of rain from Hermine fell
harmlessly in the. Gulf, and
flooding was limited to only
minor nuisances.

The storm made landfall
early Tuesday. in northeast-

ern Mexico with winds of up
to 65 mph (100 kph), arriving
near the same spot as Alex.
But Hermine was expected to
cover more of the US than
Alex, which swiped Texas in
June as a Category 1 storm
before plunging southwest
and breaking up over Mexico.

Forecasters expect Her-
mine's remnants. to spread as
far north as Oklahoma and
Kansas. Flash flood advisories

remained in effect for coun-

ties in path of the slowly dis-
solving storm.

"This is going to be much
more of a memorable storm
than Alex," National Weath-
er Service meteorologist
Joseph Tomaselli said.

In Mexico, authorities had
released water from some
dams to make room for rain.

It added more anxiety in the.

northeast cattle-ranching
region where residents
already live under the fear of
a bloody turf war between
drug cartels. Hermine struck
around the same area where
72 migrants were killed two
weeks ago in what is believed
to be the country's worst drug
gang massacre to date.

By Tuesday afternoon,
lights were gradually turning
back on for about 50,000 peo-
ple who lost power. Practical-
ly all of Raymondville had
been in the dark after Her-
mine blew out signs, snapped
utility poles and skinned the
roof of the Best Rest Inn
motel.

Melodie Tamyl and Roy
Tamez were in their second-
story room when their ceiling
began bowing up and down.
They opened the door just in
time to watch the wood
awning flip violently back-

_ ward.

"I told: (Melodie) that
we've got to get out of here
right now," said Tamez, 52.
"The whole root i is about to

go. "

day to find half the roof over
their room gone and their
bedding soaked and soiled

’ with ceiling tile and mud.

They picked through soggy
clothes and food, salvaging
what they could.

Hermine made landfall
barely a day after becoming a
tropical storm. That left many
south Texas residents with lit-
tle notice, but also gave the
storm little time to build up
steam.

Report: Fidel Castro ; ; ) '
blasts Ahmadinejad
as anti-Semitic

By WILL WEISSERT
Associated Press Writer
Se ge ee

HAVANA (AP) — Fidel
Castro criticized Iranian Pres-
ident Mahmoud Ahmadine-
jad for what he called his anti-
Semitic attitudes and ques-
tioned his own actions during
the Cuban Missile Crisis of
1962 during interviews with
an American journalist he
summoned to Havana to dis-
cuss fears of global nuclear
war. ‘

Jeffrey Goldberg, a nation-

al correspondent for The -

Atlantic, blogged on the mag-
azine's website Tuesday that
he was on vacation last month
when the head of the Cuban
Interests Section in Washing-
ton — which Cuba maintains
there instead of an embassy
— called to say Gastro had
read his recent article about
Israel and Iran and wanted
him to come to Cuba.

Goldberg asked Julia
Sweig, a Cuba-US policy
expert at the Council on For-
eign Relations, to accompa-
ny him, and the pair spent
portions of three days talking
with Castro.

Cuba's state-controlled
media reported August 31
that Goldberg and Sweig met
with Castro and attended the
dolphin show at Havana's
aquarium, but the blog was
the first to reveal details of
what they discussed.

Goldberg said their first
meeting lasted five hours and
featured appearances by Cas-
tro's wife, Dalia, his son

Antonio, and several body-
guards, two of which held his
elbow to steady Castro when
he moved.

"His body may be frail, but
his mind is acute, his energy
level is high," wrote Gold-

_berg, who also noted Castro's

self-deprecating humor.

The 84-year-old ex-presi-
dent wore full military
fatigues and an olive-green
cap while addressing univer-
sity students last week, and
had previously appeared in
public in a military shirt. But
Goldberg saw Castro in a red
shirt, sweat pants, and black
New Balance sneakers.

He said Castro, who him-
self has been a fierce critic of
Israel, "repeatedly returned
to his excoriation of anti-
Semitism," chiding
Ahmadinejad for denying the
Holocaust. Castro said that
Iran could further the cause of
peace by "acknowledging the
‘unique’ history of anti-Semi-
tism and trying to understand
why Israelis fear for their exis-
tence."

The gray-bearded revolu-
tionary related to Goldberg a
story from his childhood that
has been detailed by some
biographers: that he over-
heard classmates saying Jews
killed Jesus Christ.

"I didn't know what a Jew
was. I knew of a bird that was
a called a 'Jew,' and so for me
the Jews were those birds,"
Goldberg quoted Castro as
telling him. Castro later
added, "This is how ignorant
the entire population was."

10 killed in
truck crash in

northern Haiti

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP)

— An overloaded truck

carrying people back from a market on the Dominican border
crashed in remote northern Haiti, killing at least 10 passengers
and injuring dozens more, authorities said Tuesday.

Survivors taken to hospitals in the Dominican Republic
reported counting at least 10 bodies, according to Yonat Jean,
Haiti's consul in the border town of Dajabon.

The truck was carrying more than 60 people from the border
to the northern city of Cap-Haitien when it crashed along a
remote stretch of highway Monday night.

Thousands of people travel to the border from across north-
ern Haiti each Monday and Thursday for the two countries'
biggest common market, often traveling on trucks loaded with

goods and passengers.

The 12 most seriously injured passengers were taken to:

Dominican hospitals, including a seven-month-old baby with a
head injury, said Victor Pascasio Moya, the director of the
Ramon Matias Mella hospital in Dajabon.

Another 40 others were taken to a nearby Haitian hospital.

Haitian police spokesman Frantz Lerebours said authorities ~

have not.confirmed the number of dead.

The north-coast highway was recently refurbished as part of
a multimillion-dollar European Commission project to improve
connections between the border's industrial zone, the ports
of Cap-Haitien and ultimately the capital to the south.

The vast majority of Haiti's roads were in poor condition
before the January 12 earthquake, stifling commerce and mak-
ing it difficult to travel even short distances.

But the improved northern highway allows drivers to accel-
erate at dangerous speeds, leading to frequent crashes.

ON POINT: Cuba’s leader Fidel Castro delivers a speech to members of a Cuban medical brigade who arrived from Bolivia, in Havana, Cuba,

on Tuesday.

According to Goldberg,
Castro said, "I don't think
anyone has been slandered
more than the Jews. I would
say much more than the Mus-
lims." :

Castro also said that the
Iranian government should

understand that the Jews —

tro has begun making near-
daily public appearances to
warn of a nuclear war pitting
the US and Israel against Iran

and also featuring a Wash-

ington-led attack on North

Korea.

"This problem i is not going
to get resolved, because the
Iranians are not going to back
down in the face of threats,"
Castro told Goldberg.

Goldberg also said he revis-
ited the Cuban Missile Crisis
with Castro, asking if once "it

Mozambique government
reverses bread price hike

By EMANUEL CAMILLO

Associated Press Writer

MAPUTO, Mozambique
(AP) — Mozambique's gov-
ernment is reversing bread
.and water price increases, that
had touched off deadly riots,
the planning minister said
Tuesday.



Protests last week in the
capital, Maputo, over hikes
in the costs of bread, water
and electricity turned violent,
with demonstrators clashing
with police. The health
department put the death toll

at 13.

Planning Minister Aiuba
‘Cuereneia told reporters after

a Cabinet meeting that the 20
per cent increase in the gov-
ernment-set price of bread —
which had followed a year of
steady increases on the sta-
ple in this impoverished coun-
try — that went into effect
Monday would be reversed.
A loaf will cost five meticais,
or about 14 cents. The revers-

'



es are immediate, he said.

He said an increase in the
price of water also would be
reversed, but that higher elec-
tricity tariffs were being main-
tained.

The government also was
reducing the cost of a 25-kilo-
gram (11-pound) bag of rice
by 7.8 per cent, to 700 meti-
cais (about $19). .

- "These are measures we
are taking to reduce the cost
of living in Mozambique," the
minister said. He referred to
the protests only to condemn
the violence.

The government was cut-
ting back elsewhere to com-
pensate. Cuereneia said the
government was suspending
stipends for those chairing the
boards of public companies
and increasing some customs
duties.

The Rome-based Food and
Agriculture Organisation said
in a statement Tuesday its
experts did not believe the
world was headed toward a
food crisis like the one in
2008, when high prices
sparked political instability in
Mozambique, Haiti and else-
where. fae

FAO said this year's cereal
harvest worldwide was the
third highest on record and

“food stocks are high. Other .

while assuring fluid global

The agency is holding a
special session on September

supply situation in member
nations, but FAO stressed
that the gathering is "not an
emergency meeting."

This year, a drought in Rus-
sia has promptéd the country

-to restrict wheat exports,

helping drive up global food
costs.

Mozambique's government
has said that keeping food
prices low is difficult because
so much of the country's food

No one has come forward
as the organiser of the
protests. Word was spread by
cell phone text messages, and
on Monday Mozambicans
found they were unable to
send texts. It was unclear
whether the text failure was
part of a government crack-
down.

The worst of the rioting
was Wednesday and Thurs-
day. Though it died down

after that, the government

had struggled to stamp out
unrest and protests had flared
outside Maputo,

Authorities have said they
were trying to trace who sent
the first unsigned cell phone
messages calling for protests
in the southern African
nation. -

Over the weekend, text
messages calling for calm and
portraying protests as unpa-
triotic began to appear —
they, too, were unsigned.

The Bahamas has been
urged to postpone planned
2011 fee increases at Lynden
Pindling International Airport
(LPIA), the major body rep-
resenting the global airline
industry warning this could
threaten Nassau’s “economic
viability”, especially given the
“srim outlook” that saw ticket
revenues from Bahamas-
bound flights fall by 14.6 per
cent during the first five
months of 2010.

An August 11, 2010, letter
sent to the Nassau Airport
Development Company
(NAD) and Vincent Vander-
pool-Wallace, minister of
tourism and aviation, by the
International Air Transport
Association’s (IATA) Miami-
based representative, warned
that the proposed LPIA fee
increases would likely drive
carriers away from servicing
the Nassau route, thus nega-
tively impacting visitor access
and the Bahamian tourism
industry.

The letter, a copy of which
has been obtained by Tribune
Business, said several airlines
had “already downsized their
Jequipment into Nassau” and
reduced frequency of service
as a result of the proposed

Cyriel Kronenburg, assistant
director of industry changes
for North and South Ameri-
ca, who signed the letter on
IATA’s behalf, said Nassau’s
current cost per passenger was
$2.67, something that made the
Bahamian capital city “already
fairly expensive” for incoming
airlines.

This, he added, compared

$200m Baha Mar
loan resolution
‘in two weeks’

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor —

Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham yesterday indicated
that Baha Mar was expected to
resolve.its outstanding $200 mil-
lion loan issue with the Scotia-
bank-led syndicate over the
next two weeks, postponing
debate over the Chinese work
permits’ resolution until Sep-
tember 22-23, as he revealed
that 71 per cent of the con-
struction workforce for the $2.6
billion redevelopment would
be foreign.

Describing this as “a com-
plete reversal” of the conditions
imposed upon Kerzner Inter-
national during the various
phases of its Paradise Island
developments, the Prime Min-
ister told the House of Assem-
bly that it also ran contrary to
the Government’s philosophy
of skills/technology/knowledge
transfer to Bahamians, given
that the construction workforce
for Baha Mar would only be 29
per cent Bahamian.

“What must be determined >
is whether this invaluable ben- .

efit of skills transfer and
improved exposure to new
technologies can or will occur in
a project where contact

bank, the Cable Beach devel-
opment would not take place.

advances
and the advent of the
Internet} image files
have become one of the
most common file types
to be used and shared
today. But image files :
are often large, making ¢ |
them difficult to store
and transmit, and caus-
ing some users not to
have faith in image compression due to the
risk of quality deterioration.

First, let’s define data compression. It is
simply the reduction in data size and encod-
ing, so that records require less disk space
for storage and less time for transmission.

While image compression does involve
the removal of some texture, it does not
pose a risk to the overall quality.

When the basics of image compression
are understood, the benefits become much
more apparent.

There are two types of 1 image compres-
sion: lossless and lossy.

Both compression types remove data from
an image, but in different ways.

Lossless and lossy compression are terms
that describe whether or not data can be
recovered when the file is uncompressed.
With lossless compression, every single bit of

after the file is uncompressed and com-
pletely restored.

However, this is generally the technique of
choice for text or spreadsheet files, where
losing words or financial data could Posy a
problem.

The Graphics Interchange File (GIF) is an
image format used on the Web that pro-
vides lossless compression.

On the other hand, lossy compression
reduces a file by permanently eliminating
certain, information, especially redundant
information.

When the file is uncompressed, only part
of the original information is still present
(although the user may not notice it). Lossy
compression is generally used for video and
sound, where a certain amount of informa-
tion loss will not be detected by most users.
The JPEG image file, commonly used for
photographs and other complex still images
on the Web, is an image that has lossy com-
pression. Using JPEG compression, the cre-
ator can decide how much loss to introduce
and make a trade-off between file size and
image quality.

Why is image compression important?
Image compression is important for web-
masters who want to create faster loading
web pages, which in turn will save much
bandwidth. -

It is also important for users who wish to
send e-mail photo attachments more quick-

Image compression also saves on band-
width costs, and sending large e-mail attach-
ments without permission can sometimes
be considered offensive. :

Beriefits of Compressed Images:

On the Internet, compressed i images not
only reduce a. web page's uploading and
downloading time, but also take up less
space on the server. .

Data compression is useful in two main
areas; resource management and data trans-
mission. With data compression, the con-
sumption of, expensive resources such as
hard disks can be greatly reduced. But the
downside to this is that compressed data
often needs extra processing for decom-
pressing, so extra hardware may be required.

Conversion: Depetdng on the starting
file format, you can really shrink the size
of an image. For example, if you are starting
with a BMP or PNG (file formats) and are
converting to a JPEG, you will achieve the
best compression. Or let’s assume you are
going from JPEG to JPEG; you will not be
able to compress files as much without alter-
ing the quality.

Never resize or overwrite: Before down-
sizing to your intended size, first crop your
imagé to remove any unnecessary portions
of the picture.

After cropping, change the overall pixel to

a smaller dimension. All photo editing soft-

ware has a command for changing the pixel
dimensions of an image.
As an example, look for a command called

_ ‘Image Size’, ‘Resize’ or ‘Resample’. When

you use this command you will be presented
with a dialog box for entering the exact pix-
els you hope to achieve.

After sizing the image, be sure to do a
‘Save As’ to alleviate overwriting the origi-
nal, high resolution file. Additionally, you'll
want to save as a JPEG file. When choosing
the compression level, try to maintain qual-
ity in the medium to high range and shoot
for a file size of 30 to 100 KB per image.
And try not to exceed 100 KB per Web
page for the total of all images.

This may seem time consuming, especial-
ly if you have lots of photos to share, but for-
tunately most of today's image management

and some photo editing software
have an ‘e-mail photos’ command
that will resize and compress the
images for you. In fact, Windows
) XP and Windows Vista both have
this functionality built-in.

Quality: In terms of quality photos (espe-
cially if printing is intended), the more
megapixels you can afford, the better. But
more megapixels mean, larger photos, and
larger photos require much more space on
your PC, which can drastically slow it down.
So you are left with only one smart solu-
tion: Image Compression/Zipping, which .
allows you to have your cake and eat it, too.

I am sure you have heard about Zip and
WinZip files. Basically, a Zip Program is a
file management technique for packaging
multiple files into a single small bundle. Zip-
ping and unzipping are very popular for e-
mailing file attachments, downloading and
FTP. Here’s zipping broken down.

A Zip file is sometimes called an ‘archive’
file, which is really just a container that
houses the real files inside. Fundamentally,
it can also be likened to a ziploc- sandwich
bag that holds contents inside for easy trans-
porting and storage. This makes Zip files
(and their counterpart, Rar files) very valu-
able to file sharers and downloaders.

How Do Zip Files Work?: A Zip file
accomplishes three important objectives. It
bundles one or more files into a single con-
tainer file;.it compresses (archives) its con-
tents to be as much as.90 per cent smaller in
size; and may contain a password and an
encryption to protect sensitive data. You |
often find a zip file with the following file
extensions: .zip, .7z, .ace, .arj, .cab, .gzip,
Tar, .tar.

Theoretically, most users may discover
that files on the Web are either text, graph-
ics, audio or video files. Some. may-be com-
pressed, others not. Nevertheless, the most
common compressed files are those with
extensions such as .zip, .sit and .tar. Notably,
these extensions represent popular com-
pression formats for the PC, Macintosh and
Linux, and may be a single file or groups of
files that have been bundled into a single
archive. Likewise, an archive file can some-

‘times contain any type of file, and it often

contains software programs with related
documentation. Periodically you may come
across a self-extracting archive zip file with
the .exe file extension. However, this type of
file will not need a zip utility program as it
extracts itself once you run it.

How to compress files and view them

To view compressed files, a compatible
decompression program that reads the codes
and converts data to its original form is nec-
essary.

The details of the process will depend on
which operating system is installed on your
computer. Nonetheless, the fundamentals
are usually the same for most systems. Fol-
low these sim ple steps for File Compres-
sion: .

* Go the ‘start’ menu

* Open up ‘My.Computer’.

* Browse through the computer until you
find the file which you want to compress.

* Right click on the file that you intend to
compress.

* Choose ‘send to’ from the on-screen’
menu that appeared when you right-clicked
the file.

* Select ‘compressed (zipped) folder’ from -
the list of available options for where to
‘send’ your file to.

This will create your compressed file.

How do I un-compress a file? When you

are ready to un-compress files you will once

again locate the file on your computer and
right-click on it, choosing ‘extract all’ from
the available. options so that you can retrieve
the original version of your files If you have
already created a compressed folder and
you want to add a new file or folder to it,
simply drag, and drop the files you want to
add to the compressed folder and you're
done. No more waiting your entire life for a
file to download or upload, which is so
unnecessary and inconvenient.

As I have indicated, image compression is
necessary when storage is necessary. Despite
the fact that jt may seem challenging, com-
pression will make life for you and your:
recipient much, much easier, Nevertheless,
if you're still sceptical, try installing an image
compression software and run tests on your
own image collection.

You just might wonder why you didn't
compress your images sooner. So until we
meet again, play a little, enjoy life and stay
on top of your game.

Bahamas suffers 24% goods exports slump

* Early 2010 decline follows more than 30% fall in 2009,
as opposed to 17.5% growth between 2003-2008
* Bahamian services exports also down 10.7% in 2009

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

The Bahamas suffered a
23.9 per cent drop in goods
exports during the first two
months of 2010, a report by
a United Nations (UN)
body has revealed, the great-
est decline experienced by
any of the Caribbean
nations surveyed.

The report by the UN’s
Economic Commission for
Latin America and the
Caribbean (ECLAC)
showed that the next largest
decline in goods exports
during the January-Febru-
ary 2010 period was suffered
by Jamaica, with a 13 per
cent.contraction, the data
also showing that Bahami-
an goods exports slumped
by an even greater amount -
30.3 per cent - during 2009.

This contrasted with an
average annual growth rate
of 17.5 per cent for Bahami-
an goods exports between

showed just how badly the
economic and financial crisis
hit this nation’s exports,
which are reliant on a limit-
ed number of commodities
markets,

Bahamian services exports
had also been hit, the
ECLAC report noted,
falling by 10.7 per cent in
2009, as opposed to an aver-

age annual growth rate of

4.4 per cent between 2003-
2008.

However, on an encour-
aging note, ECLAC said
tourist arrivals to the
Bahamas during the 2010
first quarter rose by 1.6 per
cent. This, it added, was sig-
nificant given that the
Bahamas is the second
largest travel exporter in the

CARICOM area behind
Jamaica.

“In particular, the
Bahamas was successful in
its Companion Fly Free Pro-
gramme, which brought
increases in forward book-
ings and allowed the hotel
sector to reintroduce last-
minute offers to fill spare

capacity,” the ECLAC
report said. “Nevertheless,
the general consensus is that
the recovery - especially in
receipts - will most likely not

‘make up for the decline

experienced during the
recession, as demand in

“source markets remains low

and prices have been cut to
attract visitors.”
Given the services-depen-

dent nature of the Bahami-

an economy, the ECLAC
report said it had experi-
enced “a sharper drop in
GDP” when compared with
Caribbean economies more
oriented to goods, such as
Trinidad & Tobago, Guyana
and Suriname.

A previous ECLAC
report, The World Invest-
ment Report 2010: Invest-
ing in a low carbon econo-
my, said that together with
Jamaica and Trinidad &
Tobago, the Bahamas
accounted for half the $5 bil-
lion in foreign direct invest-
ment inflows received by the
29 Small Island Developing
States in 2010.‘

“Foreign direct invest-

ment inflows to SIDS |

2003-2008, something that

space.

Mr Simpson and his son, also called
Raymond, said they were putting “the
finishing touches” to the business plan for
Freeport Building Supplies, which will
operate from the former Home Centre
building owned by Freeport Concrete

chairman Hannes Babak. The property -

also houses the new Butler’s Food World
outlet.

In a statement, Ray Simpson Jnr said:
“Dad felt really bad about the fact that
[Freeport Concrete] did not survive, in
spite of doing all he could do, and that so
many people were let go in a tough
Freeport economy because the company
had just run out of money.

“Coupled with the fact that Dad is a
real believer in Freeport, loved his eight
years in the building supplies industry
and really wanted to stay in Freeport

lot of employees, but at this
time how many other com-
panies in Freeport are hir-

ized that when he called me recently he
had an idea. We talked for quite a while
and he asked me if I would be willing to
invest and open a company in Freeport in
an industry:that he loved and felt still
had a lot of potential, especially in the
future. Well, to cut a long story short,
with lots of discussion, | agreed and today
we are putting together the finishing
touches of the business plan for the com-
pany which will open in a few weeks.

“I know that this is not a lot of employ-
ees, but at this time how many other

companies in Freeport are hiring this

number of people? It is a start and hope-
fully with patience, persistence and time,
it will grow.”

Raymond Simpson Snr added: “First, I
would like to say thanks to my son for
having the confidence in me to invest his
money in starting a business here in
Grand Bahama. It is unfortunate that no
matter how hard I tried I was not able to
save Freeport Concrete.

“However, I don’t like giving up and
today with my son’s savings in hand I
look forward to getting back to work,
hiring some good, hard working people
and growing Freeport Building Supplies
into a successful company offering qual-
ity products at affordable prices to all
who live here on Grand Bahama.

“Grand Bahama is a risk and everyone
knows that, but I really love this island,
the people and the business, and am
going to do my utmost to make a go of
it.”



2009, marking the end of
four consecutive years of

increase,” the World Invest- -

ment Report 2010 said.
“Nevertheless, at $5 billion,
inflows were the second
largest ever. The share of
inward foreign direct invest-
ment flows in gross fixed
capital formation declined
from 40 per cent in 2008 to
30 per cent in 2009.”

The report said foreign
direct investment flows into
small Latin American and
Caribbean island states fell
by 45 per cent in 2009, but
added: The top three host
economies (Jamaica,
Trinidad & Tobago and
Bahamas, in that order)
absorbed nearly half of the
SIDS group’s total inflows.”

The Bahamas received
$654 million in foreign direct
investment in 2009, some 13
per cent of all such flows
going to SIDS. Still, the $654
million figure represented a
22 per cent decline upon
2008’s $839 million invest-
ment inflow, and was als 9
below the $746 million
received by the Bahamas in
2007. Given the Bahamas’
relatively high purchasing
power, with a per capita
income of $21,275 in 2009,
the World Investment
Report suggested it was
potentially an “attractive
niche destination for specif-
ic industries”, such as luxury
goods retailing.

$200m Baha Mar loan resolution ‘in two weeks’ | City Markets targeting
Christmas profitability

FROM page 1B

One of the pre-conditions for
Baha Mar’s Chinese financing
partner, the China Export-
Import Bank, to release $2.45
billion in debt financing to fund
the project was the resolution
of the Scotiabank syndicate’s
loan. The Chinese want this to
be resolved, because unless that
loan’s security on several real
estate parcels at Cable Beach -
it luding the existing Sheraton
aid Wyndham resorts - is lifted,
they will be unable to use the
same as collateral for their
loans.

Scotiabank and Baha Mar
representatives are due to meet
in Toronto next week in a bid
to thrash out a resolution. A
‘debt-for-equity’ swap is being
actively discussed by both par-
ties. Sources familiar with the

portion of the debt, estimated
to be around $205 million, paid
in cash, due to the fact that as a
conservative lender it will have
to write down the value of the
equity stake (loan) on its bal-
ance sheet, and is taking a gam-
ble that Baha Mar and its Chi-
nese partners will be able to

deliver the $2.6 billion project .

and profitable returns on it.

- The bank, ultimately, has to
protect its own interests
through adhering to prudential
banking norms, plus those of
its depositors and the wider
Bahamian banking system, giv-
en the sum extended to Baha
Mar.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham also revealed
that another condition set by
China Export-Import Bank and
China State Construction for

_the project to go ahead was that

title to 13 separate parcels of
Government/Crown/Treasury
land, totalling almost 265 acres,
had to be transferred/sold to
the project before any deal was
consummated, and financing
released.

“It is the position of my Gov-
ernment that these lands will
only be transferred for the
expressed purpose of facilitat-
ing the development and that
should the development not
proceed the land must return
to the Government,” Mr Ingra-
ham said. :

China State Construction
had obtained a $1.919 billion
construction contract to build

the core of Baha Mar, featuring -

six hotels with 3,500 rooms, a
100,000 square foot casino,

beach and pool experience.

Mr Ingraham, though, said
“the foreign labour component
intended during the construc-
tion of the Resort exceeds lev-
els ever experienced in the
Bahamas and is beyond any-
thing ever contemplated by my
Government”.

Some 1,200 Bahamians were
projected to be engaged in con-
struction at Baha Mar, includ-
ing the $75 million West Bay
Street re-routing; $30 million
Commercial Village and ‘back
of house’ on Gladstone Road;
$10 million of earthwork, irri-
gation and landscaping on the
new golf course; and $20 mil-
lion of construction on the golf
clubhouse, and buildings
around the beach and pool
area, and retail village. p

“I have been advised that the
principals of Baha Mar are in
discussion with their Chinese
partners and financiers with a
view to additionally, engaging
Bahamian contractors in a
number of ‘trade packages’
related to the core project to
include general site clearing and
preparatory work, masonry, dry
wall, ceilings, painting, electri-
cal, mechanical, site security,
fencing, beach restoration,
remediation, and landscaping
having a total estimated value
of $40 million,” Mr Ingraham
said. “It is further expected that
many of these jobs will carry
over to continued employment
in the ‘trade packages’ for the
Core Project I mentioned. This,
we are informed, is expected to
result in the engagement of
3,300 Bahamians at the height
of construction of the core pro-
ject.”

million, Derek Winford
described increasing market
share and winning back cus-
tomers as “the biggest chal-
lenge right now”.

“It’s got to be a huge mar-
keting campaign,” Mr Winford
told Tribune Business, adding
that City Markets needed to get
customers believing in it again
following successive disap-
pointments over the past year.

He added that the company
had probably used up most of
its “nine lives” when it came to
meeting Bahamian consumer
expectations, and needed to
entice them.back to drive top-
line sales growth. That dropped
by more than $19 million in fis-
cal 2010, falling by 16.4 per cent
from $118.552 million to,
$99,132 million.

“We’re working very closely
with Joan Albury at The Coun-
sellots, and together are coming
up with an arsenal of weaponry
that we’re going to release,” Mr
Winford told Tribune Business.

“I want to do it within the
next couple of weeks. We have
three launches we want to do.

“We’re going to be doing
some work to reduce shrinkage
even further, but more impor-
tant will be the launch of the
new marketing campaign. That
is the biggest thing for us.”

Describing the issue,of when
City Markets would return to
profitability as “the gold ques-
tion”, the chief executive said:
“Tf the marketing campaign
works and we have a good
Christmas, I’m hoping for prof-
itability during that period.”

Theory

. This would, in theory, help
to carry City Markets ‘and its
immediate parent, Bahamas
Supermarkets, through the 2011
first half (the latter part of its
financial year) in the black, giv-
en that the January-April peri-
od is traditionally its strongest
part of the sales calendar, due
to the tourism season peak.

The increase in visitor
arrivals - both hotels and sec-
ond home/winter residents -
usually benefited the compa-
ny’s stores at Lyford Cay, Har-
bour Bay and Cable Beach, and
Mr Winford told Tribune Busi-
ness: “Based on the lift, we
should have profitability dur-
ing that period.”

Acknowledging that City
Markets suffered a “huge blow”
to its immediate turnaround
plans as a result of the refriger-
ation problems that afflicted
seven of its eight Nassau-based
stores, something he hinted
could have been the result of
sabotage, Mr Winford said the
company had also implemented
a staff incentive programme to

reduce shrinkage.

Shrinkage - pilferage,
spoilage and loss of inventory -
has been running at 6 per cent
at City Markets, compared to
the global industry average of 2
per cent. However, if staff can
reduce it to 4 per cent they will
receive five weeks’ worth of
pay, and if the 2 per cent
threshold. “That’s a 20.per cent
additional bonus,” Mr Winford
said.

Refrigeration

While the company’s refrig-
eration problems were now
largely solved, he added:
“Those problems we had hit us
hard. We thought we were over
the hump, and then something
hits you hard....... I think that
was a huge blow.

“Flow can you run a retail
business without refrigeration?

“That’s mostly behind us, but
that affected seven out of eight
stores at the same time. Explain
that to me.

“How could that happen?
That hit us really hard and the
customers were not sympathet-
ic. They left us in droves.”

Trinidadian conglomerate,
Neal & Massy, which is the
largest investor in Bahamas
Supermarkets’ 78 per cent
majority shareholder, BSL
Holdings, had experienced
turnaround situations before in
companies it owned/controlled,
but Mr Winford said the situa-
tion at City Markets was “par-
ticularly tough”.

There were, though,
“brighter signs” as a result of
the 2010 fourth quarter perfor-
mance, City Markets even gen-
erating a small profit in June.

That, though, is not expected
to continue in the short-term,
Mr Winford describing the
July-September period as tra-
ditionally the one with lowest
sales, despite the Back-to-
School period.

For the year to June 30, 2010,
gross profits at City Markets
fell from $25.288 million the
previous year to $23.901 mil-
‘lion, a drop of 5.5 per cent.

While operating expenses
came down by almost $1 mil-
lion, falling from $30.874 mil-
lion to $29.925 million, the com-
pany’s operating loss still rose
by 7.8 per cent to $6.024 mil-
lion.

A rise in interest
expense/finance charges to
$1.408 million, compared to
$483,311 in 2009, added to the
net loss. -

Airlift’s ‘grim outlook’ via 14.6% revenue fall

FROM page 1B

Bahamas with the Americas
region,

“Comparing the first five
months of 2010 with 2009, tick-
et sales for the Americas region
have increased by 19.6 per cent,
and gross revenues for airlines
from those sales have increased

by 32.2 per cent. A healthy |

development that shows the
region is in a rebound from the
economic downturn.

“When we look at the same
numbers for the Bahamas
specifically, the outlook is very

grim. Although ticket sales -

have increased by 26 per cent
compared to 2010, the gross

revenue from sales has .

decreased by 14.6 per cent over
the same period. This cléarly
shows the effect of reduced
ticket prices in combination
with taxes and fées of the past
year, an unsustainable situation
that will have long-term
effects.”

Data attached to the IATA
letter showed that airline gross
revenues from ticket. sales' on
Bahamas-bound flights had fall-
en from $17.324 million in the
first five months of 2009 to
$14.795 million during the same
period this year.

Gross revenues from ticket
sales, year-over-year, were
down 23 per cent in January; 6
per cent in February; 25 per
cent in March; and 17 per cent
in May. Only April showed a
rise, with a 1 per cent increase.

This was despite the number -

Minister goes ‘against DNA’

FROM page 1B

“There is no one in the
Caribbean more opposed to
increasing airline ticket costs to
island destinations than me,”
Mr Vanderpool-Wallace told
Tribune Business. “At the samé
time, I’m a realist, and we need
to upgrade the quality of our
facilities and have an outstand-
ing airport hub in the Bahamas.
That needs to be funded.”

Referring to NAD’s pro-
posed fee increases, which will
add to the burden facing all
international and Bahamian-
owned carriers who use LPIA,
Mr Vanderpool-Wallace added:
“Those costs are the recovery
costs for this airport develop-
ment. While they [the Interna-
tional Air Transport Associa-
tion and airlines] knew I had a
sympathetic ear, and the Gov-
ernment was sympathetic to it,
and I do believe we have some
middle and long-term solutions
to it, as far as the near term
goes, I see no-alternative to
increasing costs.”

Thus it appears that IATA’s
pleas, and those of the airlines,





of tickets issued for Bahamas-
bound flights increasing from
53,219 in the first five months of
2009 to 67,032 for the same
period in 2010. Ticket sales vol-
umes were up for all months
bar May, with January seeing
an 18 per cent increase; Febru-
ary a 43 per cent rise; March a
52 per cent increase; and April
32 per cent growth.

Mr Vanderpool-Wallace told
Tribune Business yesterday
(see other article on Page 1B)
that he had listened with “a
sympathetic ear” to the con-
cerns expressed by IATA, and
both international and Bahami-
an-owned airlines, over the
LPIA fee increases.

He acknowledged, though,
that while being a leading oppo-
nent of anything that raised
access costs for visitors seeking
to reach the Bahamas, as the
fee increases threatened to do,

he had to temper this with >

“realism”, given that.LPIA’s
transformation into an “out-
standing hub: airport” needed
to be financed from some-
where.

As a result, Mr Vanderpool-
Wallace and the Government
had reached the conclusion that
there was no alternative to
increasing airport fees in the
short-term, otherwise NAD’s

for the planned 2011 fee
increase to be postponed will
not be acted upon by either
NAD or the Government.
However, the minister said that
in the transition to transforming
LPIA into a world-class facility,
the Government and NAD
would need to “make sure” the
increased costs did not dampen
carrier and tourist demand.
Mr Vanderpool-Wallace also
conceded that the Bahamas
needed to work on reducing
further airlift and associated
access costs to the destination,

as the success of the Ministry

of Tourism/private sector Com-
anion Fly Free’ promotion
indicated increased visitors
would come if prices lowered.
Acknowledging that the 180-
mile flight from Miami to Nas-
sau cost more than travelling
several thousand miles across
the US to a destination such as
Las Vegas, Mr Vanderpool-
Wallace told Tribune Business:
“There is a fundamental philo-
sophical point that has been
part of my DNA forever, which
is that island destinations do
ourselves a preat disservice by
increasing the cost of access.

\

THE



ability to finance the ultimately

$409.5 million in debt it has tak- .

en on would be jeopardised.
Similar sentiments were
expressed in NAD’s August 30,
2010, letter responding to Mr
Kronenburg and IATA’s con-

cerns. Paul Ward, NAD’s vice-

president of finance and chief
financial officer, said effective-
ly that it would be impossible to
back away from the fee increas-
es now, given that they were
integral to the airport opera-
tor’s financial modelling and
structuring.

'“Key strategic decisions
impacting the rates required to
support the redevelopment
were made in late 2008, follow-
ing consultation with the air
carriers and government,” Mr
Ward said.

“These rate decisions now
form a critical component of
the financing structure, and
with construction underway
must be implemented. To devi-
ate now would jeopardise the
financing currently in place and
risk the future stages of con-
struction......... There cannot be

any postponement or change |

to the pending rate increases.”

The episode highlights the
negative impact any fee increas-
es at LPIA could have on _air-
line willingness to fly to Nas-

sau, thus potentially hurting the
tourism industry’s viability. It
also shows the difficult balanc-
ing act NAD and the Govern-
ment are trying to achieve in
financing the airport’s redevel-
opment while simultaneously
keeping costs under control.
In his letter for IATA, Mr
Kronenburg said the planned
LPIA fee increases “could not
have come at a worse time for
the aviation sector”, with the
industry estimated to have lost

-a net $11 billion in 2009, cou-

pled with an $80 billion rev-
enue decrease.
“At this fragile moment in

time, airlines and passengers ©
cannot sustain any additional

measures that would further
discourage
explained. “Allowing this and
other announced increases to
happen at the proposed rate
could pose a significant threat
to the economic viability of
Nassau as an international des-
tination.”

While understanding the

financial pressures NAD was
facing due to the airport’s
reconstruction, Mr Kronenburg
suggested that the pre-financing
method chosen might be in con-
travention of International Civ-

‘il Aviation Organisation

(ICAO) principles.

“The main problem that air-
lines and passengers are facing
in Nassau is the fact that past
and present rate increases are
already taking place when the

new facilities are not yet oper- _

ational,” he wrote.
“Under internationally-

over airport fee increases

“The reason why the cruise
business in the Bahamas is so
successful is that the cruise
ships offer a low-cost experi-
ence to passengers visiting our
island destination. The cost of
getting to the Bahamas is high-
er than the cost of getting to
Las Vegas.”

The Companion Fly Free
programme, the minister
added, had exposed “exactly
what the customer is saying:
Give us low cost access and we

‘will come in increasing num-

bers. There’s a very real con-
nection between low cost air

: transportation and an increase ** °

in demand”.

While not willing to disclose
details,.Mr Vanderpool-Wal-
lace said he and the Ministry
of Tourism were working on
plans to reduce airlift and
access costs, initiatives where

~ he saw “great potential for the

Bahamas”.

NAD plans to increase land-
ing fees at LPIA by 10 per cent
as of January 1, 2011, and raise
other fees by 3 per cent.

VUTULAITERS REGULATION & COMPETITION AUTHORITY

URCA’s Role as a Regulator

Response to Letter to the Editor

The Utilities Regulation & Competition Authority (URCA) has taken note
of the letter that appeared in The Tribune on August 26", 2010 authored by
Gene Gibson under the headline “Questions for Cable Bahamas, shareholders

and government.”

While Mr. Gibson raises some interesting’ questions,

URCA wishes to clarify, specifically, its role as regulator of the Electronic

Communications Sector, which includes Broadcasting and Cable TV.

URCA has the duty to issue licences for and regulate the Electronic

Communications Sector (ECS) services by exercising the powers given to it under

the Communications Act 2009. URCA is also required to protect the interests

of consumers of ECS services; therefore, URCA monitors and enforces the

consumer protection conditions that are set out in the licences of service providers.

However, URCA does not regulate copyright infringements: or other issues

concerning intellectual property. Those matters are investigated and enforced by

agencies of the Government.

Regarding late fees and other penalties, a subscriber to any service takes the

service by entering into a contractual agreement with the service provider.

Therefore, it is important that consumers read their contracts to ensure

they understand the terms and conditions under which the provider has

contracted to deliver the particular service(s). While, customers have the

right to be fully informed of the terms under which the service is delivered

they also have a responsibility to fulfill their obligation under the contract

and, in this regard, meeting the contractual requirements for payment for

the services delivered is an obligation. Therefore, if late fees and other

penalties apply under the contract, when the service is not paid for within an

allowed grace period, the provider may decide to enforce those conditions.

URCA remains fair & transparent in its decisions. It should be noted that

any person who wishes URCA to launch a formal investigation into CBL’s

operations on the level of late fees, or any other relevant matter, may submit a

formal (confidential) complaint to URCA via email to info@urcabahamas.bs

Rebuilding in New Orleans

Protecting New Orleans homes from flooding has involved not only strengthening the defenses around the
city, but considering new building practices in areas below sea level.

The most common building method in New Orleans, pier foundations have rows of individual piers with

Homeowners can raise their homes and replace the piers with taller, steel-reinforced piers anchored into a

FROM page 8B

workers who survived the rig
explosion have accused BP's
engineers of cutting corners to
save time and money on a pro-
ject that was 43 days and more
than $20 million’ behind sched-
ule at the time of the blast.

BP's report acknowledged,
as investigators have previous-
ly suggested, that its engineers
and employees of Transocean
misinterpreted a pressure test
of the well's integrity. It also
blamed employees on the rig
from both companies for failing
to respond to warning signs that
the well was in danger of blow-
ing out. Mark Bly, BP's chief
investigator, said at a briefing in
Washington that the internal
report was a reconstruction of
what happened on the rig based
on the company's data and
interviews with mostly BP
employees and was not meant
to focus on assigning blame.
The six-person investigating
panel only had access to a few
workers from other companies,
and samples of the actual
cement used in the well were
not released.

Outgoing BP chief Tony
Hayward, who is being replaced
Oct. 1 by American Bob Dud-
ley, said in a statement that a
* bad cement job and a failure of

a barrier at the bottom of the
well let oil and gas leak out.

Transocean blasted BP's
report, calling it a self-serving
attempt to conceal the real
cause of the explosion, which
it blamed on what it called
"BP's fatally flawed well
design."

"In both its design and con-
structiony BP made a series of
cost-saving decisions that
increased risk — in some cases,
severely," Transocean said.

Halliburton said in a state-
ment of its own that it found a
number of omissions and inac-
curacies in the report and is
confident the work it completed
on the well met BP's specifica-
tions.

"Contractors do not specify
well design or make decisions
regarding testing procedures as
that responsibility lies with the
well owner," the statement said.

An AP analysis of the report
shows that the words "blame"
and "mistake" never appear.
"Fault" shows up 20 times, but
only oncé in the same sentence
as the company's name.

Steve Yerrid, spécial coun-
sel on the oil spill for Florida
Gov. Charlie: Crist, said the
report clearly shows the com-
pany is attempting to spread
blame for the well disaster,
foreshadowing what will be a
likely legal effort to force Hal-

‘liburton and Transocean, and
perhaps others, to share costs
such as paying claims and gov-
ernment penalties.

Several divisions of the U.S.
government, including the Jus-
tice Department and Coast
Guard, are also investigating
the explosion.

The Obama administration
said it was expanding being car-
ried out by the beleaguered

agency that oversees offshore:

drilling. A report released
Wednesday by the Interior
Department says the agency —
recently renamed the Bureau
of Ocean Energy Management,
Regulation, and Enforcement
— should increase the number
and training of inspectors; con-
duct more surprise inspections;
and stiffen fines and civil penal-
‘ties on companies found to vio-
late federal rules.

The blowout preventer’ was
raised from the water off the
coast of Louisiana on Saturday.
As of Tuesday afternoon, it had
not reached a NASA facility in

. New Orleans where govern-
ment investigators planned to
analyze it, so those conclusions
were not part of BP's report.

Retired Coast Guard Adm.
Thad Allen, the government's
point man on the spill response,
said the BP report will add to
investigators' understanding
"but is not the end-all-be-all ..,
about why it happened and
what needs to happen in the
future."

The rig explosion killed 11
workers and sent 206 million
gallons (nearly 800. million
liters) of oil spewing from BP's
undersea well.

Investigators know the explo-
sion was triggered by a bubble
of methane gas that escaped
from the well and shot up the
drill column, expanding quick-
ly as it burst through several

seals and barriers before ignit- .

‘ing. But they don't know exact-

ly how or why the gas escaped. :

And they don't know why the
blowout preventer didn't seal
the well pipe at the sea bottom
after the eruption, as it was sup-
posed to. There were signs of
problems prior to the explo-
sion, including an unexpected
loss of fluid from a pipe known
as a riser five hours before the
explosion that could have indi-
cated a leak in the blowout pre-
venter. .

Obama firm:

tax breaks

INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS

for wealthiest

JULIE PACE,
Associated Press Writer
CLEVELAND

President Barack Obama
strongly defended his oppo-
sition to extending Bush-era
tax breaks for the wealthi-
est. Americans on Wednes-
day and delivered a searing
attack on Republicans and
their House leader for advo-
cating "the same philosophy
that led to this mess in the
first place."

Obama said the struggling
U.S. economy. can't afford
to spend $700 billion to keep
lower tax rates in place for
the nation's highest earners



despite a call by House

- Minority Leader John
Boehner and other GOP

leaders to do just that.
Speaking in the same city
where Boehner, an Ohio
Republican, recently
ridiculed Obama's econom-

ic stewardship, Obama said —

Boehner's policies amount
to no more than "cut more
taxes for millionaires and cut

-more- rules for corpora-

tions."

Obama's comments came
as the administration rolled
out new proposals designed
to re-ignite a sputtering
recovery, including new tax
breaks for businesses and

College West Campus in Parma, Ohio.

$50 billion for U.S. roads,
rails and airports.

"Let me be clear-to Mr.
Boehner and everyone else.
We should not hold middle
class tax cuts hostage any
longer," the president said.
The administration "is ready
this week to give tax cuts to
every American making
$250,000 or less," he.said.

The sweeping series of
Bush tax cuts expires at the
end of this year unless Con-
gress renews them.

Obama wants to extend
the tax cuts except for indi-
viduals making over
$200,000 a year or families
earning over $250,000.

Obama went after Boehn-
‘er — who would probably

Aug. 24, Obama said, the
Republican leader offered
"no new ideas. There was
just the same philosophy we
already tried for the last
decade, the same philoso-
phy that led to this mess in
the first place."

speech, Boehner offered his

to the levels of 2008, before
the deep recession took

hold.

"People are asking,
"Where. are the jobs?'"
Boehner said, calling the
White House "out of touch"
with the American public.

Obama gave one of his

strongest pitches yet on
‘allowing the Bush tax cuts

to expire at the end of this
year for wealthy Americans
but allowing them to remain
in place for everybody else.

Republicans, and even

~ some Democrats, have sug- -

gested that it was no time to

_Taise taxes on anybody, giv-

en the fragile state of the
economy.-._
The debate is an unwel-

~ come one for dozens of vul-

nerable Democratic incum-
bents just weeks before
Election Day. :
Already, a handful of
Democrats in conservative
or swing districts, such as

out publicly for extending
all the cuts — at least tem-
porarily..

Still other embattled
Democrats; wary of alienat-
ing middle-class voters, are
siding with Obama.

In central Ohio, for exam-
ple, Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy has
said the tax cuts for higher

earners should be répealed,

but middle-income people
should see no tax increases.

Obama acknowledged
that the recovery that began
in late 2009 had slowed con-
siderably.

"And so people are frus-
trated and angry and anx-
ious about the future. I
understand that.

“T also understand that in
a political campaign, the eas-
iest thing for the other side
to do is ride this fear and
anger all the way to Elec-
tion Day," he’said-~

"The middle class is still
treading water, while those
aspiring to reach the middle
class are doing everything
they can to keep from
drowning," Obama said.

Pastor Dave _
Burrows releases

autobiographical book

By JEFFARAH GIBSON
Tribune Feature Writer



ELLING drugs, breaking into

homes, gang banging and

committing heinous crimes
was his long suit at age 13.

There was no law for young Dave
Burrows as he did what we pleased and
no one could have stopped him.

He was born into a middle class family
who saw the importance of a Christian
upbringing. However, to the dismay of his
parents this did not have an impact on
him.

At the age of 14, he assaulted a school
teacher and was put out of his home after
an altercation with his father. His life spi-
raled even more out of control and young
Dave found himself, counterfeiting and
involved in a high speed police chase and
arrest in Florida while in college.

One year later Mr Burrows made a
decision that led to redemption as he was
introduced to Christ by his brother in law
Robyn Gool. ;

Now, Pastor Dave Burrows is releasing
a autobiographical book titled “The
Power of Positive Choices”, which docu-
ments his past life and turning point that
brought joy and relief to his family.

With his new book and youth ministry
Pastor Dave Burrows is destined to turn
the lives of young people around.

“T wrote about my life several years ago

but I never released it. People began to
encourage me to tell my story because
they felt it could reach a lot of people,” he
told Tribune Religion.

He said his story is a life lesson that
many young people, who may be engag-
ing in the same activities can learn from.
“T did a lot of horrible things when I was
younger and it is all because of the influ-
ence that people had on me.

When I was younger, my brother:was

doing a lot of negative things. T’watched

my brother and | got attracted to the
things that he and his friend was doing. t

ty



got introduced to
marijuana and |
began to use it
and I started sell-
ing it at school
and once you
start getting into
those kinds of
things they lead
to other things,”
he said.

Selling pack-
ages of marijuana
at school led to
robbery, counter-
feiting, burglary
and hand gun
possession where .
he faced the possibility of three years in
prison. Fortunately for him the charges
were resolved through a_ probation
arrangement with the Sherriff's depart-
ment in Florida.

He said he wants young people to know
that his is not the life to live. “Most of my
friends back then are now dead, on drugs,
in prison, and some have HIV/AIDS.
When I turned my life around the first
people I targeted was my friends. | tried
to ‘get them to go to church to change
their lives. Some of them agreed, they
changed their ways but they didn’t last
very long and went right back to doing

Dave Burrows



the same . things,” Pastor Burrows
explained. :

So far Pastor Burrows has been suc-
cessful in reforming many young people.
“I started doing the unconventional
things. I started doing the things that pas-
tors weren't doing at that time. I would
take a group of guys go to the basketball
court play ball with them. I talked to
them about their life and some of them
responded positively to me,” he said.

“The Power of Positive Choices” is just
another extension of Pastor Burrows’
youth ministry.

“The gist of it all is it is a life lesson.
When people hear my story they can
appreciate it. They tend to examine their
own lives he said. “But the main message
I am sending out is that no matter the
mistakes you have made or the bad choic-
es you have made you can get back on
track,” he said.

The book is recommended for all
young people to read. Parents who are
struggling.with youth are also encouraged
to read the book.

“The Power of Positive Choices” is

available at local and international out-

lets including, One Rib Publications on
Robinson Road, Faith Life Bookstore,
and otiline at www.bfmmm.com or irter-
ested persons can call 954-603-7285 or

ist Annual Elkin R Storr
Memorial Hymn Festival -

By ALESHA CADET
Tribune Features Writer

O commemorate their 48th
anniversary, the members of

the Mt Moriah Baptist ,
Church, Farrington Road, are
coming together on September 12
to hold the 1st Annual Elkin R

Storr Memorial Hymn Festival.

The event will take place at the Mt
Moriah Church \starting at 4pm.
Members said Dr Storr, who passed away
in August 2004, served three times as
interim pastor of the church during very
crucial transitional periods. The hymn
festival is to memorialise his legacy of
willing and unselfish service and his keen
interest in and love for church music. An
invitation is extended to the public.

According to the Director of Music at
Mount Moriah Baptist Church and host
of the event, Mr Darville "Sonny"
Walkine: “ Elkin R Storr was a preacher,
teacher, husband, father, academician,
public servant all rolled into one. He was
born in the obscure little settlement of
Polly Hill San Salvador, on 27 September
1939 to Captain Claudius and Lolita
Storr. He became a monitor at age 12 at
his All Age School. His career ambition
was to join the lighthouse service but his
father encouraged him to stay on in
school. He did and in 1957 he moved to
New Providence entering the Technical
School, Oakes Field, studying for and
successfully passing his Cambridge exam-
inations — the forerunner of the London
General Certificate of Education
(GCE).”

Tribune Religion understands that after
completing technical School, Mr Storr
was posted at Stanyard Creek, Andros,
as the headmaster of the All Age School,
staying there for one year. In 1961 he
entered the Bahamas Teachers College
and on completion of studies there was
posted as headmaster at the Rolle Town
All Age School. In 1965 he was granted
a Commonwealth Scholarship tenable at
the University of Southampton to study
mathematics.

Dr Walkine noted that on Mr Storr's
return home he was posted at the George
Town All -Age School staying only for
one term before being appointed as a
mathematics lecturer at the Bahamas
Teachers College in 1967. The following
year he was given an in-service award to
study in the Natural Science Division of
the University of the West Indies. After
completing his degree he returned to the


























































Bahamas Teachers College.as a lecturer
in mathematics.

" This institution would later become
the College of The Bahamas and he a
member of its formulating faculty. His
pursuit of higher education was far from
complete as he again was given another
in-service award to study for his masters
degree at the University of
Loughborough England, but true to
form he stayed on to pursue his doc-
toral degree in the philosophy of
mathematics. All of Dr Storr’s public
servi-e was not exclusively in teach-
ing as he spent the years 1986
through 1993 in various capacities in
the office of the prime minister of the
Commonwealth of The Bahamas and
would retire from the public service as a
senior officer in the Parliamentary ~
Registration Department,"

He notes that Mr Storr was fully per-
suaded throughout all of his life that it is
the “fool” who says that “there is no
God” so he nurtured his spiritual life
much the same as he did his academic
life. In 1967 having been earlier commis-
sioned as a deacon in the Zion Baptist
Church, East and Shirley Streets, he
transferred his family’s membership to
the Mount Moriah Baptist Church on
Farrington Road, Zion’s first New
Providence mission.

In the 1976 general Conference of the
Zion United Baptist Convention he was
ordained to the sacred gospel ministry.
Faithfully and humbly serving the Mount
Moriah community he was called on to
act as its interim pastor on two occasions.
Indeed he was presently serving when he
went home to his reward on 09 August
2004.

"To Mary, he was the consummate hus-
band and friend, to Merrit and Elvia a
father like no other and to the Mount
Moriah family, an example of a true ser-
vant of God," Mr Walkine stated.

“He never sought leadership but was
always willing‘fo rally to the call when he
was needed most. A scholar trained in
logic and deductive reasoning, he pre-
sented his sermons in clear argumenta-
tive style. He also loved music and
shared his talent as a bass singer
in the choir up until the time of
his passing.”

The establishment of this
annual hymn _ festival,
therefore, is to memorial-
ize his legacy of willing
and unselfish service and
his keen interest in and
love for church music.

they will pursue the Spirit of God, in expec-
tation of the manifestation of His power.

In preparation for this great feast, the

Te National Women's Ministry of °

women have gathered ‘at various locations:

seeking the face of God in early morning
prayer meetings, asking for God's divine
presence to saturate the house to bring heal-
ing and deliverance. Expectation is truly the
breeding ground for miracles and the
women are excited and confident that God
hears and answers prayers.

Wednesday evening will focus on being
“In Step with the Spirit...In His Presence”.
We are anticipating the awesome presence
of God as we enter His gates with thanksgiv-
ing and praise, giving adoration to the King

of kings. Our desire is that the pursuit of his ~
presence becomes our single magnificent

obsession.

journey to healing and true deliverance.

AS WE look to the future with all
of the dreams that God seeks to
make our reality, remember the fol-
lowing:

1. God knows our needs and wants
us to grow in grace as individuals and
as a people.

2. God loves us, as the cross indi-
cates very clearly, and will reveal to us
in the fullness of time what this love
will require of us in. our community.

3. God has provided the tools for us
to use, on a daily basis, to accomplish
God’s perfect plan for our lives:

a) PRAYER: the lifeline of com-
munication, to maintain a lifelong
relationship with God while on earth
and as preparation for eternal com-
munion in God’s nearer presence.

b) SCRIPTURE: life-giving words
to study, memorise, and share with
others.

c) MINISTRY: opportunities to
share our gifts to build up the church
and the nation.

d) WORSHIP: the celebration of
God’s presence with us in joyful
thanksgiving, and reverent awe and
wonder

e) ENCOURAGEMENT: the

.approach we need to take toward
family members and friends so that
we offer positive affirmation whenev-
er possible. :

f) BEAUTY: the gracious gift of
God to inspire us as we grow to
appreciate the world around us and
share our revelation with others.

g) HEALING: the ability to allow
our bodies, minds and spirits to be
restored as God sees fit.

h) FORGIVENESS: God’s
redeeming love extended to us on the

cross, our invitation to forgive our- .
selves and to forgive others as we .

reflect.God’s character in our actions.
As we take note of the various chal-
lenges facing us as a people, we

realise that the church has to offer
leadership as never before. We have
been called to serve God in our gen-
eration, at this particular time in the
nation’s history.

We need “all hands on -deck.”Ou
mandate is clear: :

1. It is for us to speak of hope in a
time of hopelessness

2. It is for us to be energised with the
strength that comes from God alone
while others are falling by the wayside,
and to reach out a hand to help them to
continue on the journey.

3. It is for us to exhibit the peace that
passes understanding when others are
stressed and depressed. .

4. It is for us to handle our affairs with
joy unspeakable even in the face of
adversity. . ae

5. It is for us to love with the love of
the Lord, remembering that the way to
make disciples is to reveal Christ in us
while sharing the Gospel.

Let us each ask God to transform us
into better servants, as we seek to
model accountability, integrity and
faithfulness. Let us model for our young
people and children, the life-style of a
devoted and committed Christian wher-
ever we are; but especially in our
homes. Let us pray for-one another
daily, in order to bind ourselves togeth-
er in love, and to share-a common vision
and goal. Let us strive to bring glory to
God’s name, as directed by the Holy
Spirit, and may we all hear “well done”
when we meet God face to face.

Cyriel Kronenburg, assistant
director of industry changes for

signed the letter on IATA’s
behalf, said: “The scheduled
increases: will eventually. more

tions are made. §
“There are a number of

- Freeport Primary School and

while at Freeport Primary

er schools, there were prac-

The auditor g general provid-

media reports.

The minister said that com-
ing out of the recently under-
taken audits, the Ministry of
Education held ‘seminars in

Mr Bannister said that part

A MAN accused of attempt-
ing to rob an armoured truck in
December 2007 proclaimed his
innocence yesterday, stating
that he had no knowledge of

the crime.

Ryan Butler told the nine
member jury he was heading
to the Super Value foodstore in
the Prince Charles Shopping
Centre to purchase milk for his
girlfriend when he was shot by
police.

Butler, who is no longer rep-
resented by an attorney, is
accused of attempting to rob
armored truck driver Andrew
Knowles on December 21,
QOOT!: "teh. *

During his closing address
yesterday, he told the jury that
he had-no knowledge of the
crime and did not take part in
the offence. BO

Prosecutor Anthony
Delaney told jurors that while
Butler would have them
believe that he was an inno-
cent bystander, the evidence
proves otherwise.

Mr Delaney told jurors that
while armed, Butler, and his
cohorts had attempted to rob

_the armored truck outside the

Royal Bank of Canada but
their attempt failed.

He also pointed to testimony
which suggested that Butler
and others had attempted to
make a getaway in a gold Hon-
da Accord but collided with a
blue Toyota Tercel.

Mr Delaney told the jury
that according to evidence,
Butler was shot while attempt-
ing to flee the scene and was
captured at the scene.

He asked the jury not to con-
cern themselves with anything

-said about the case that has not

been adduced at the trial.
Senior Justice Jon Isaacs is
presiding over the case.

SHARK: The

cut open by
Late DYeVes gots

BAHAMIAN police will not
rush forensics screening on thé
body parts found inside a tiger
shark over the weekend —
despite international media
organisations continuing to
clamour for more information.

Senior officers confirmed sci-
entists will run the full gamut of
forensics tests, including DNA
and toxicology tests, before
releasing their findings.

Supt Leon Bethel, head of
CDU, said: “We are continu-
ing the investigation, we can-
not say now when it will be
completed or when we will
release the report because there
are a few persons that have
been reported missing at sea.

“We are going to check every
one of them with precision.
Once we have done some
investigation we will decide on
what approach we'll take in
terms of the autopsy and foren-
sic samples for comparison.”

Mr Bethel added: “We
received calls from several Mia-

mi-based media outlets.”

Also among the networks
who have contacted The Tri-
bune for the story are CBS,
NBC, Fox, UK-based tabloid
The Sun, and a German media
group.

Police murder inquiry breakthrough
POLICE have made a significant break-through in their inves-
tigation into the murder of 30-year-old Chrishonda Swain, The Tri-

bune was told yesterday.

A man in his early 30s, said to be a resident of Nassau Village,

TRU RO MUSIRCCINIC



of the Shark Research Institute
(SRI), told The Tribune the
marks on the body parts
appear, from a cursory inspec-
tion, to be consistent with tiger
shark bite marks.

She was responding to spec-
ulation that the man's body
may have been chopped up and
thrown into the sea before he
was eaten by the 12ft monster.

Ms Levine said tiger sharks
usually leave "very clean edged
bite marks" because of their
upper and lower serrated teeth.

Due to the limited range of
view the pictures provide, Ms
Levine could not see if there
were defensive wounds on the
remains which would provide
clues of-whether the man was
alive or dead when he was eat-
en.

The investment banker, out
deep sea fishing with two
friends, caught the shark in
waters about 38 miles south of
New Providence on Sunday. He
said a left leg popped out of the

shark as they hauled it on to
their vessel. When the beast
was cut open at the Defence
Force's Coral Harbour base,
RBDF officers also found the
man's right leg, two severed
arms and a torso in two sec-
tions.

The victim is described as a
"black man, of heavy build and
heavy structure."

"He had neither clothes nor
any identifying marks," said
Bahamian investment banker
Humphrey: Simmons, one of
the deep sea fishermen who
hauled the gruesome catch on
board his boat.

Still reported missing are 62-
year-old Frank Brown Sr and
47-year-old-Delton Newton,
who disappeared after their

ble in waters off Clifton Pier

week has also not yet been
found.

was in custody last night assisting police with their investigation.
Senior officers say they expect to charge someone in connection
with the murder by the end of the week. The victim was found dead
on a track road on August 13. Initial reports suggested she had been
raped by her attacker before she was killed with a blow to the head.
Her body was found around 400 ft off Faith Avenue South

Man, woman airlifted
to Nassau after boat
explosion in Andros

By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

aturnquest@tribunemedia.net_.

A MAN and woman
were airlifted to the capital
today following an explo-
sion onboard a boat in
Andros yesterday.

Preliminary reports sug-
gest sparks from loose con-
nections on electrical
wiring ignited gas reserves
on a 15ft boat at a dock in
Lisbon Creek. —

The explosion was said
to be so loud that residents
in the area thought it was a
demolition exercise.

Mable Bastian, 82, who
has lived in Lisbon Creek
for 51 years, said: “I was
home alone when I heard
the explosion. It was so
loud I thought to myself, ©
sound like dynamite blow —
then I slipped my shoes on
and went to see what hap-
pened. When I got there
everything was over but
the dinghy was still intact
at the dock.”

The injured crew mem-
bers had to be airlifted
from the Mangrove Cay
Clinic because of the
extent of their burns.

The group of three peo-
ple were reportedly
preparing to go to the US
Navy’s AUTEC base.

Investigations are con-
tinuing.

The deciding factors for Baha Mar

IT IS understandable why former Prime
Minister Perry Christie was still haggling
over the BahaMar deal up to,two days
before the 2007 election, which he lost.

Not only was he concerned about whether

’ the developer had enough finances to see
the project through, but he certainly did not
want the “secret” clauses involving prime
land in the agreement to be exposed on the
floor of the House. Just before an election an
admission that government was prepared to
transfer 264,965 acres of public land on
Cable Beach to a foreign investor could have
scuttled his election.

Likewise, Prime Minister Ingraham is
taking no chances in the new Baha Mar deal

with a new partner. The request for work :

permits for foreign labourers — 8,150 with

the peak number at any given time being.

5,000 — is unprecedented. This is one deci-
sion that his government is not going to
make albne. The Bahamian people —
through their duly elected representatives
— will now have to join government in say-
ing aye or nay to the $2.5 billion project.

If either of these proposals — the land
deal or the labour request — had been pre-
sented to the Bahamian people in 2007, there
would have been a loud bellow: “Hell, no!”

But times have changed. Too many
Bahamians are jobless. In 2007 no one could
predict the world’s economic collapse. Today
suffering from that collapse, Bahamians need
jobs. They have to educate their children
and pay their bills. And so they will probably
agree to the project provided all foreign
workers on completion of their work are

repatriated. Also if the developers do not .

live up to their agreement, all public land will
revert to the government.
We certainly understand the position of
the Chinese. Wherever they do similar pro-
jects, they use their own material and labour.
Not only do they understand what they are
dealing with and know how to cost it, but it
is their money, and their policy is to invest it
in their people. And so the concessions that
they are now prepared to make to Bahami-
ans from their point of view would be a con-
siderable bending of their own rules to
accommodate Bahamians. .
It is said that all Chinese workers, 8,150 of
’ them, will be engaged on Baha Mar’s
“Core” projects, while some 1,200 Bahami-
ans will be employed in the non-“Core” pro-
jects. Mr Ingraham said that the Baha Mar
_ principals.are in discussion with their Chi-
nese partners to also engage Bahamian con-
tractors in a number of “trade packages”
related to the Core project, totalling about
$40 million. It is expected that this might

engage about 3,300 Bahamians at the height
of construction of the Core projects.

Mr Ingraham said that in the 1950s the
law and the government permitted as high as
25 per cent of the labour force in construc-
tion and/or operation of tourism develop-
ment to be foreign. Beginning in the 1980s,
said Mr Ingraham, the practice evolved
where large foreign components were
engaged in the construction of hotels, and a
smaller number of foreigners were allowed
to work in the hotel upon completion.

He reminded House members of the sub-
stantial foreign work force engaged to con-
struct the Crystal Palace Resort and Casino,
the Wyndham Crystal Palace Resort and
the US Departure Terminal at the then Nas-
sau International Airport. He said at those
two projects there were Indians, Braziians
and other foreigners who far outnumbered
the Bahamian work force.

When in 1992 his party became the gov-
ernment, it was decided to discontinue the
PLP employment practices. In 1993, he said,
on agreeing the terms of the redevelopment
of Kerzner’s Paradise Island, “notwith-
standing the demonstrable need for the
engagement of large numbers of expatriate
experts and labour for the timely completion
of the project,” the ratio of Bahamians to
non-Bahamians on the construction site was
not to exceed 30 per cent foreign to 70 per
cent Bahamian, increasing on the required
Bahamian component above the 1954 statu-
tory base of 25 per cent.

However, he pointed out that when the
PLP succeeded his government, they did not
adhere to this employment ratio on the con-
struction of the Bimini Bay resort at North
Bimini. As a result, foreign workers, mainly
Mexican, far exceeded the number of
Bahamians engaged on that project.

And now they are faced with the Baha
Mar project: a 71 per cent foreign work force
to a 29 per cent Bahamian work force.

The legislators now have to decide on
behalf of their constituents: Will this revive
employment and will the transfer of tech-
nology and skills to the Bahamian work

. force make this project not only viable, but

also attractive?

This will be debated and decided in the
House on Wednesday or Thursday, Sep-
tember 22 and 23.

In the meantime Baha Mar has to satisfy
the Scotia Bank loan before it can conclude
a deal with the Chinese bank. And so the
two deciding factors— the Bahamian people
on the one side, and Scotia Bank on the oth-
er before Baha Mar and their Chinese part-
ners can turn the first sod of Bahamian soil.



What does
McCartney
bring to
the table?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

PLEASE allow me to
express a few thoughts on the
political scene in the Bahamas
today. I want to focus on the

- question of the emergence of

new leadership in the Free
National Movement party.
Like Bahamians every-
where, I too am watching to
see. what happens at the lead-
ership level of the party in the
very near future. Similarly,
not so long ago we all
watched with bated breath the
leadership struggle in the

opposition Progressive Liber-

al Party. «

Now leaders emerge at dif-
ferent times and in different
ways. Some are wrought in
the belly of adversity and
national crisis, while others
are crowned with little or no
history of struggle whatsoev-
er. a
It is in that light that I have
listened to all the talk about a
certain politician - Bamboo
Town MP Branville McCart-
ney to be exact — who has not
hidden his desire to succeed
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham as party leader.

There.is nothing wrong
with ambition, but it must be
tempered with reality. If it is
true that Mr McCartney is
actively plotting Ingraham’s
downfall, then he had better
read the tea leaves again.

What exactly does Mr
McCartney bring to the
table? Firstly, let us examine
briefly his parliamentary per-
formance as the MP for Bam-
boo Town. The fact is that he
has made very few speeches
on the floor of the House
since entering those hallowed
halls a little over three years
ago.

He has not, in my view, dis-
tinguished himself as a par-
liamentary performer, show-
ing judgment and originality
in his speeches. He has not
demonstrated an ability to
think on his feet in the cut
and thrust of debate.

It is in these debates that

‘ political careers are made or

destroyed. He should go back
and look at Ingraham’s record
as a parliamentary perfor-
mance. He will learn an awful
lot. McCartney has been very
silent in the House since
resigning as junior immigra-
tion minister earlier in the

year to take a seat on the
back benches. , :

That brings me to look
briefly at his resignation from
the cabinet. He claimed that
at the forefront of his deci-
sion were “feelings of stagna-
tion and the inability to fully
utilize my political potential
at this time.”

I have already said in an
earlier letter that I felt that
Mr McCartney’s resignation
was motivated by selfish polit-
ical ambition and an inability
to work as a team player in
Cabinet.

I think that even Mr
McCartney’s: supporters
would agree that loyalty is.an
important component in par-
ty politics. One must demon-
strate that one does not place
personal ambition over party
loyalty and unity.

What was even more sur-
prising, some say astonishing,
was that after his resignation
he announced publicly that
he did not like the direction in
which Ingraham —a sitting
prime minister — was leading
the country. But despite that,
he has remained firmly
entrenched in the party. He
has continued. to-strengthen
his base in Bamboo Town,
not knowing whether the
bouridaries will remain the
same in the next general elec-
tions, or, indeed if he will be
the party’s candidate next
time around. One must not
take things for granted in pol-
itics.

His resignation speech cer-
tainly raised questions in my
mind whether Mr McCartney
still fully subscribes to, or
accepts, the policies of his
own party, if he is of the view
that the leader is taking the
country in the wrong direc-
tion.

That brings me to my third
point about this so-called
leader-in-waiting. Apart from
his views on illegal immigra-
tion, which I think it is fair to
say that all Bahamians share,
we really don’t know much
about where he stands on oth-
er issues.

If he wants to lead the
country — not a petty shop —
he must articulate his views
on education, job creation
and the rights of women and
children. He must state a posi-

_tion on the role of private

enterprise in the economy;

strengthening family life, con-
stitutional reform, prison
reform and health care, as
examples.

I think the public is entitled
to know his views on these
things. If I were a delegate at
the party’s convention, I
would certainly want to know
where he, or any other can-
didate, stood on these issues.

How can’a man - or a
woman — expect to lead a
whole nation without telling
the people where he or she
stood on these important
issues? I am sure that the
major financial backers in the
party would want to know his
views on private enterprise,
and the limits of government
in the economic life of the
country, before casting a bal-
lot for him.

It is not too late for him to
explain to the nation his views
on these things before the
convention.

Lastly, I would just like to
touch very briefly on Mr
McCartney’s history in his
party. Is it fair that he should
be allowed to jump the line
ahead of men like Dion
Foulkes, Zhivargo Laing,
Tommy Turnquest, Daron
Cash and Carl Bethel in any
leadership race? Whatever
one’s views on their perfor-
mances, they have endured
the heat of the day, the toils,
disappointments, and frustra-
tion of opposition politics
over very many years.

Suppose, for argument
sake, that McCartney chal-
lenges Ingraham at the con-
vention and wins. That would
mean that Mr McCartney
would be thrust suddenly into
the seat of prime minister
over night. That is what would
happen.

That would mean that
Ingraham would, in all prob-
ability, resign from the Cabi-
net. He might revert to the
back benches, or he might
resign from the party alto-
gether.

That would mean that the
country would be saddled
with a prime minister who
was not elected in a general
election; who has never been
tested in any crisis and who,
apart from his views on immi-
gration, is a totally unknown
commodity. Would that even
be fair to Mr McCartney?
Would it be fair to the coun-

try?

Prison reform
‘well on its way’

By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

PRISON reform is well on
its way, according to Superin-
tendent Dr Elliston Rahming,
head of the Prison Department.

Dr Rahming said “signifi-

cant” changes have been made .

over the past five years to
encourage a “genuine philo-
sophical shift from revenge and
punishment to rehabilitation
and reintegration.”

He delivered these com-

ments as the prison celebrated
its accomplishments last week
with a presentation to members
of the clergy.

At the top of the list of
achievements mentioned was
the record low of escapes. Dr
Rahming said the overall
escape rate was kept at 0.25 per
cent of the total prison popula-
tion over the past five years.

In 1998 and 1999 there was a —

record high of 18 escapes col-
lectively. In 2005 and 2006, Dr
Rahming’s first two years in
charge, there were eight
escapes collectively; in 2007
there were two; one in 2008,
and none in 2009.

Over the same period, Dr
Rahming said, the rate of
recidivism among new admis-
sions fell to 19 per cent.

Course offerings in academ-
ic, technical and vocational sub-
jects more than doubled and
the Extra-Mural Programme
was expanded to accommodate
5Oinmates: ~ ae

One of the measurements

used.by Dr Rahming in access-,

ing the impact of new pro-
grammes is the number of cas-
es brought before the prison
tribunal on a monthly basis.

In June there was one case ©

sance; three inmates found with

chargers and five cell-phones
confiscated; and four “jookers”,

_ or stabbing implements .found.

Dr Rahming said the June
number were average, and no
cause for alarm.

There were five cases of offi-
cer infractions brought before
the tribunal in the same peri-
od. The infractions included
neglect of duty, insubordinate

conduct, and being absent with-_

out leave. q
Dr Rahming also said a state-

of-the-art Health Diagnostic

Unit was created “to reduce the

‘need to have staff and inmates

go to Princess Margaret Hos-
pital for various routine diag-
nostic tests.”

The exercise yards in Maxi-

‘mum Security and the Remand

Facility were both renovated.
The courtyard was paved and
fenced in the case of Maximum
Security.

A $7,000 cell-phone sniffing
dog has also be put to use on
the prison compound. Five cell-
phones were confiscated in
June.:

Centre was completely reno-
vated, and “clutter, debris and

graffiti within Maximum Secu-
rity cells and corridors” was
“significantly cleaned up”, said
Dr Rahming. —

The prison documented its

accomplishments over the past. —

five years in a newly published
progress report on prison

’ reform.

‘The publication highlights
the creation of an Officer
Dependents Fund. that dis-

persed $6,000 about three.

weeks ago to the families of
deceased officers. There is cur-

rently $60,000 on'account for

the fund.

Dr Rahming said the details
of the report will be presented
and discussed with family mem-
bers of inmates at the next
quarterly meeting, which is
scheduled for the end of Sep-
tember. ;

He addressed some of the
concerns of inmate relatives,

who told The Tribune their’

family members had to wait:
long periods of time to get
orders filled by the prison com-
missary. :

One mother said her son had
to wait “sometimes one month”
to get water and other items.

Dr Rahming said every
prison on the compound gets
to order once per week and has
orders delivered once per week.
The exception, he said, is Max-
imum Security, where items are
delivered twice per week, as

they have their own commis-

sary. k

“What happens sometimes is
inmates send in an order form
thinking there is money on their
account when there is none. It
may be two or three weeks
before someone puts money on
their accounts,” said Dr Rah-
ming.

He said inmates get a receipt
when an order is filled indicat-
ing the balance on their prison
account. Family members are
able to deposit money on an
account for inmates to purchase
goods from the prison commis-
sary.

“Let’s say the balance is near
zero and a family member
comes and says they will put
$100 on tomorrow. Sometimes
they don't do it (right away),

but the inmate thinks it has |
been done, so he places an:

order,” he said.

prison is closed to visitors

though many Bahamians are still
unemployed on Grand Bahama.

Mr Laing explained that work
permits are only issued for posi-

and qualifications that do not
exist within the local labour
force. |

“We have to recognise that
evety work permit does not rep-
resent a job that a Bahamian can
hold,” he said. . °

The Grand Bahama Shipyard is per-
haps the largest employer of foreign
labour here on the island.

\Bahamian workers are significantly
out-numbered by expatriate workers. The
shipyard currently employs a labour force
of about 700 persons. Of that, 275 are
Bahamians,

Efforts are now underway to train

Bahamians to fill key. skilled positions,

of éstablishing-a Technical

positions that are-usually filled
by foreign labourers.

There is a growing demand
for skilled welders and pipe-fit-
‘ters at the oil refining facility.
The company has had to import
foreign labour because of the
lack of local technical resources.

The school will be able to
train and certify up to 30 welders and
pipe-fitters per year.,

Mr Laing said the immigration policy of
the Bahamas requires for positions to be
advertised locally before any work permit
is issued. ,

“I know that there are people who |

clearly believe that principle has been
violated a number of times.

“Tf you look at the-category for maids
and gardeners, the vast majority of work

permits are applied for by Bahamians,

‘they are not applied for by non Bahami-
. ans,” he said.

Minister Laing said the government,
seeks to accommodate all applicants
when they can demonstrate that they
have been unable to fill that particular
need locally. i

The economy of Grand Bahama con-’
tinues to be challenged and many people
still continue to seek employment.

’ Mr Laing stated that the government is
doing all it can to ensure that permits are
not issued in areas that can be filled by
Bahamians. '

He noted that the Ministry of Labour
has ‘a skills bank where employers can
submit their needs and persons can send
in their information for jobs they are
seeking. '

“Just because you have a pool of unem-
ployed people and you have a develop-

ment taking place does not mean that

every skill required for the development

“But what we are doing now is,seeking-
to pay particular attention to these exist-
ing permits and applications for permits
so Bahamians don’t miss an opportunity
to find employment,” he said.

Airplane in crash
‘not insured

for commercial
operations’

By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

THE airplane that crashed
off the coast of Grand
Bahama late August was not
insured for commercial oper-
ation, according to Tribune
sources.

The operators of the six-
seater Piper Aztec aircraft
that went down in waters 26
miles off Grand Bahama did
not have the proper certifi-
cates or requirements for
commercial operation, the
source alleged.

Investigators have not
released the official mainte-
nance report as yet, but Tri-
bune sources claim that the
Grand Bahama crash is a
“classic. case” of hacking.

The twin-engine plane
developed engine problems
10 minutes into the flight
from Walker’s Cay. Six per-
sons — four adults and two
children — were onboard.

They hung onto the tail of :

the plane for nearly three
hours until rescuers arrived.
Pilot Fritz Cambridge,
LaTanya Miller, Miriam
Gibson, and Jennifer Bullard
and her two children, Ter-
rinique, 14, and Tamasio, 9,
were taken to the Rand
Memorial Hospital for treat-
ment.
Mr Cambridge was issued
a commercial pilot certificate
_in 2008, according to the
Federal Aviation Authority
(FAA) website. His medical

status in the FAA Registry is:

dated January 2008.
According to. an experi-
enced pilot, aviation regula-
tions stipulate that pilots
have to be certified as med-
ically fit to exercise their
rights under a pilot license.
They also have to participate
in a biennial flight review.
“Tf you have a commercial
licence; the medical require-
ment is once every 12 calen-
dar months. If you have a
private pilot licence, depend-

ing On age, it is every 36 cal-". :

endar months,” said the
pilot.

He said the FAA website
is usually current within a 60
to 90-day period. “If you see
something that is more than
a year old, more than likely
that is (a correct record),”
he said.

’ Hacking is a problem avi-
ation authorities have been
trying to crack down on for
years.

_In recent months, there

“were two accidents that
involved aircraft that were
not licenced to operate char-
ters — one of them, the twin
engine aircraft that crashed
on Bimini in May, in which
two people died.

_ “The public must be

aware that the practice of }
unauthorised aircraft char- :
ter operations is indeed a‘

dangerous form of black

instances, these operators
may be unlicensed, unin-
sured, uninspected and may

Call for local products, |
- Bahamian vendors at
- the new straw market —

By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
mreynolds@tribunemedia.net

YOUNG Bahamians are

calling for the new straw >

market to feature strictly
local products sold by
Bahamian vendors.

They made this appeal in
a discussion facilitated by
the Downtown Nassau Part-

nership (DNP).

Their contributions posted
on a Facebook page’ oper-

i. ated by the DNP will be
: . passed on to managers of

the new straw market in the
Ministry of Tourism and
Ministry of Works.

As the new straw market,
which is set to open in
August or September next
year, nears completion,
Bahamians interested in the
future of downtown Nassau

‘are putting forth their views.

with calls for better man-
agement, maintenance, and
strictly Bahamian vendors
selling authentic local prod-

-ucts.

“I think that only authen-
tically Bahamian items

shouldbe sold ae the gew

straw market and those
found to be selling other
items should be evicted,”
said a commentator who
goes by the moniker
‘Errolee’. :

“All those ‘knock off”
items from those other
countries should remain in
those other countries. Also,
please.keep those other for-
eign nationals out. This new
straw market should be for

the employment of Bahami-

ans only.”
A poster by the name
‘Denise’ added: “I agree

with keeping foreign nation-

als out and it has nothing to
do with being racist or prej-
udiced:

“Tt is a huge problem for
me when I go to attractions
or destinations that are sup-
posed to showcase who we
are as Bahamians and I am
bombarded with Jamaican,

sonalities.

Denise said.

‘Nicole’ said: “Authenti-
cally Bahamian crafts are
the only things that should
be sold in the new market.
I’m so tired of seeing fake
Gucci bags and other

junk.”

DNP board member
Vaughn Roberts said coun-
terfeit goods being sold ille-
gally in the straw market
should be banned, howev-
er, the other products cho-
sen must suit the vendor and
the buyer.

While. Mr Roberts agrees

‘that straw-based items

should prevail, there should
also be room for some cre-
ativity.

And the nationality of
vendors.comes down to the
permit holders, he said.

He said the stall-holders
shoppers see in. the market
are not necessarily the per-
mit-holders, as the majority
of permit-holders were
granted their licences sever-
al years ago and now lease
their stalls out for others to
operate. ,

But the opinions
expressed by interested
Bahamians will be passed
on to straw market man-
agers in government with
the hope they will be taken
on board, he said.

i ii as
Cape Eleuthera Institute

launches Bahamian
apprentice programme

THIS summer the Island
School and Cape Eleuthera

“Institute. (CEI) graduated its

first class of students in the
Bahamian Apprentice. Pro-
gramme. The programme
offers Bahamian high school
and college students an
opportunity to gain real
work experience through
paid apprenticeships in areas
such as office administra-
tion, culinary arts, carpen-
try and boat operations.
The 2010 Bahamian

apprentices were Shapreka .

Clarke and Malcolm Good-
man of Deep Creek, Teran

* Mackey of John Millars, and

Chris Kemp and Charlene
Nixon of Wemyss Bight.
’ Shapreka and Chris have
had long affiliations with
The Island School as alumni
of the Deep Creek Middle
School.

Chris now attends the

Bahamas Technical and
Vocational Institute and
Shapreka received a schol-
arship| to. attend the
Roanoke College in Salem,

Virginia. She is currently

majoring in biology and
plans to attend medical
school. Shapreka assisted
with database entry and oth-
er daily office administra-
tion duties for both the CEI
and the Island School during
her apprenticeship.

“One of the things I
learned is the importance of
networking and meeting
new people. I met a lot of
different people and I
learned a:lot about them,”

' said Shapreka.

Another apprentice, Ter-

an Mackey, is a recent grad-

uate of Preston H Albury
High School in Rock Sound,
Eleuthera.

He spent his summer

apprenticeship learning how
to create new meals with the
Island School kitchen staff.

“The communication and
networking skills I learned
this summer will help me
with my future career of
owning my own hotel,” said
Teran. °

“We are extremely proud
of the group of students we
had with us this summer,”
said Karla Cosgriff, manag-
ing director of CEI. :

“They embraced their
jobs and new opportunities
in our community with
enthusiasm and all have
developed additional skills
and confidence.’

The Island School and the’
CEI will be expanding the
Bahamian Apprentice Pro-
gramme in summer 2011 to
include more students from
South Eleuthera and
beyond.



IN THIS photo taken Aug. 25, 2010, a street vendor sits in front of rubble from a building,. Aeatriyed by
the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake, in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. By some estimates, only 2 percent of the:250 mil-
lion cubic-meters of debris in Port-au-Prince has been cleared, for reasons ranging from lack of equipment
and money to an abysmal property records system. (AP)

Just two percent of quake
debris in Haiti cleared

BAGELS

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti

FROM the dusty rock mounds lining the
streets to a National Palace which looks like it's'
vomiting concrete from its core; rubble is one
of the most visible reminders of the Haiti's dev-
astating earthquake, according to Associated
Press.

Rubble is everywhere in this capital city:

cracked slabs, busted-up cinder blocks, -half-

destroyed buildings that still spill bricks and pul-
verized concrete on the sidewalks. Some places

look as though they have been flipped upside -

down, or are sinking to the ground, or listing
precariously to.one side.
By some estimates, the quake left about. 25

"million cubic meters of debris in Port-au-Prince
.— more than seven times the amount of con-

crete used to build the Hoover Dam. So far, only
about two. percent has been cleared, which means

‘the city looks pretty much as it did a month after

the Jan. 12 quake.

Government. officials and outside aid groups
say rubble removal is the priority before Haiti can
rebuild. But the reasons why so little has been
cleared are complex. And frustrating.

Heavy equipment has to be shipped in by sea.
Dump trucks have difficulty navigating narrow
and mountainous dirt roads..An abysmal prop-
erty records. system makes it hard-for the gov-
ernment to. determine who-owns a dilapidated
property. And there ‘are few sites on which to
dump the rubble, which often contains human
remains.

Projects funded by USAID and ihe US.
Department of Defense have spent more than

$98.5 million to remove 882,000 cubic meters of ©

rubble. Because all the equipment needs to be
shipped to Haiti, and because land to dump the
debris is scarce and expensive, the cost is -high.
Also, no single person in the Haitian govern-
ment has been declared in. charge of the rubble.
This means foreign NGOs have taken on the

. rubble removal task themselves, often fighting for -
- asmall pool of available money and contracts —

which in turn means the work is done piecemeal,
with little cooordination. .

"There's not a master plan," sighed Eric Over-
vest, country director for the U.N, Development
Program. "After the earthquake, the first prior-
ity was clearing the roads. That was the easiest
part."

Overvest said the Interim Haiti Recovery
Commission — which was created after the earth-
quake to coordinate billions of dollars in aid —
has approved a $17 million plan to clear rubble
from six neighborhoods in Port-au-Prince. The six

“neighborhoods have not yet been selected, he

added, and it's unclear when debris will be

\ removed from other areas.

Leslie Voltaire, a Haitian architect, urban plan-
ner and presidential candidate, says his country
needs.a "rubble czar.

"Everybody is passing the blame or why things
haven't happened yet," he said. "There should be
one person in charge. Resettlement has not:even
begun yet, and it can't until the city has been
cleared."

Voltaire maintains that there 2 are enough cr thchs
ers, dump trucks and other heavy equipment for
the job; others say that more machinery is need-
ed. But everyone agrees that recovery will take
decades. — and the slower the rubble removal,
the longer the recovery.

Most Haitians are simply living with the rubble,
working and walking around it. After a while, the
gray heaps and cockeyed buildings just blend
into the tattered background of the city.

"It will take many, many years to fix," acknowl-
edges Overvest. "We can't just go with wheel-

~ ever be cleared,"

barrows to remove it."

But that's exactly what s some Haitians are
doing: using shovels and wheelbarrows to clear
properties — a Sisyphean task if there ever was
one.

"Personally, I don't: think Port-au-Prince will
shrugged 47-year-old Yvon
Clerisier, an artist who: was working a tempo-
rary job clearing rubble with a rusty shovel for a
private homeowner on a recent summer day. He
wore torn jeans, a sweaty T-shirt and sandals,
and was covered in a fine. dust. /

Clerisier was one of a dozen men in his crew; in
100-plus degree heat. The property owner, Gre-
gory Antoine, said he paid the crew $1,200 for
three weeks of work.

"People want to work," Antoine said. "If you
get a good organization to put people to work
and give them direction, things will’ get.done.
But right ‘now, nothing is. getting done."

It's not for lack of trying. The non-profit CHF
International spent about $5 million of USAID
money on heavy machinery and paying Haitians
to remove rubble from specific sites. ‘

Dan Strode was the rubble removal’ opera-
tions manager for CHF for three months; some
dubbed him "the rubble guy" because of his
enthusiasm for the job.

"Rubble isn't.sexy," the Californian admits.
"And clearing it is not as simple as people think."

Strode's big worry: that debris won't be cleared
fast enough and that the piles of rocks and
garbage and dirt will be overtaken by tropical
growth.

"If we don't clear it, what we will leave behind
is something that is worse than before," said
Strode. "If you come back in a year, and the
rubble hasn't been cleared, it will be grown over,
subject to landslides and unstable."

Strode, who coordinated the removal of
220,000 cubic meters of material in three months,
said one acute problem emerged when he tried to
demolish buildings. Property records were either
destroyed in the quake or never existed at all —
and without an owner's consent, it was difficult to
remove the debris. Another problem: Strode
would often receive approval to demolish, say, a
public building such as.a hospital or a school —
but nearby homes would be put at risk.

"You cannot wantonly go in and demolish," he
said. ""There's:a liability i issue. '

Strode told of a multistory hospital that had
pancaked; an elderly woman living precariously
close to the debris was scared that the hospital
demolition would also take down her home.

"She shouldbe scared," Strode said. "This is
dangerous stuff."

Strode is no longer doing rubble removal. The
grant money ran out, and has not yet been
renewed.

Another hurdle: dumping the debris.

While many private landowners and others

are dumping the rubble in the streets, canals or
countryside, there's only one place. in all of Haiti
where NGOs using U.S. money can take conta-
minated rubble. It is an approved and environ-
mentally surveyed site.

"Not all rubble is the same," said Michael
Zamba, the spokesman for the Pan American
Development Foundation. "There's a lot of con-
taminated rubble with human remains in it. It
can't go in a standard landfill."

Zamba points out that before the earthquake,
Haiti was the least developed country in the
hemisphere — so it's not that surprising that
recovery is slow.

"Haiti is a really expensive place to work —
you have to ship im gas, vehicles, people," he
said. "But. you clean up the rubble in a neigh-
borhood, and it transforms it. Life comes back."

and sewing rooms, in addi-
tion to several labs and class-
rooms. ° .
- He saw how the children
were able to learn with the
use of the Promethean

the skill.

Mr Bannister was taught
how to sign several words
and how to show applause

pared for new crop, but
which still contained some
budding pepper plants.

The administrators of each

Report says Bahamas | an
anti-human trafficking

However country making ‘significant
efforts’ to comply with standards



THE Bahamas demonstrated

only minimal. efforts when it came . |

to anti-human trafficking law
enforcement and protecting victims
of trafficking over the last year.

This, according to the 2010 Traf-
ficking in Persons (TIP) Report on:

the Bahamas to the United States
Congress.

However, the report stated that
while the Bahamian government

still does not fully comply with the.

minimum standards for the: elimi-
nation of human trafficking, it is
making significant efforts to do so.

Awareness

_ Following the release of this
year’s report, the Bahamian gov-

ernment condemned all forms of °

human trafficking and is making
preparations to create public aware-

ness on'such issues, the Ministry of .

Foreign Affairs said.

The report alleges that the
Bahamas is a. “destination country
for men and some women from
Haiti and other, Caribbean coun-
tries who are. subjected to traffick-
ing in persons, specifically forced
labour, and, to a lesser extent,
women from Jamaica and other
countries who are in forced prosti-
tution.”

_ Last week, Brent Symonette,
Deputy Prime Minister and Minis-
ter of Foreign Affairs and Immi-
gration, met with Amy Rofman,

Officer of the United States Depart-.

ment Office to Monitor and Com-
bat Trafficking of Persons, to dis-
cuss the 2010 TIP Report.

Under the 2000 Trafficking Vic-
tims Protection Act:(TVPA), the
United States Secretary of State is
required to submit to Congress an

NEAR

annual report referred to as the TIP
Report. The main objective of the
report is to stimulate action and to
create partnerships around the
‘world in the fight against modern
day slavery. :

Since the 2009 TIP report, coun-
tries‘established as a country of ori-
gin, transit or destination for vic-
tims of severe forms of trafficking
are included in the report and are
assigned to three tiers. The
Bahamas is classified as a Tier 2
country. Sy :

In the report, Haitian trafficking

victims have been noted as targets -

for forced labour in agriculture,
domestic service. or forcéd prosti-
tution, while Jamaican and other

_ foreign women are reportedly sub- .”

ject to forced prostitution.
Based on the contents of thé

report, luring mechanisms such as —

offers of employment serve as a

‘means to facilitate acts. of human

trafficking, particularly in the lat-
ter case.
“Despite the accusations, the

Bahamas condemns all forms of

human trafficking and maintains

- that by virtue of Article 3 of the
Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and _

Punish Trafficking in Persons, Espe-
cially Women and Children, inci-
dences of employer coercion can-
not by itselfbe termed as an office
of human trafficking, nor.is it evi-
dence that persons are being traf-
ficked,” the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs said.

It added, “The Bahamas, while
noting the recommendation that it
ought to take steps to identify pos-
sible trafficking victims among
migrants attempting to enter the
Bahamas illegally, queries this rec-
ommendation within.the context of

REPORT MEETING: On Thursday, September 2, Brent Symonette, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign

provide law enforcement with

“Additionally, the Bahamas

queries the critique that the gov-
ernment made minimal efforts to
_ prosecute trafficking offenders con-

sidering that under Protocol, human:

trafficking offences are victim dri-

ven and that successful prosecutions

in human trafficking cases require

the positive participation of such
* victims.”

Legislation

Given the context of the provi-
sions of Bahamian legislation,
which is acknowledged in the
report as affording immunity to
and protection of trafficking vic-
tims, the ministry said it should
be noted that if victims of traf-
ficking were to be identified, the
issue is always whether or not they
will be prepared to provide the
evidence necessary to sustain a
prosecution.

“The Ministry of Social Devel-
opment is already making prepara-
tion to create public awareness on
the issue of human trafficking,” the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

tution could not afford the cost
of providing special computer

This all changed last week
when two leading computer

donated a state-of-the-art com-
puter lab to the school.

Thanks to the new equipment,
the students will now. be able to
handle a number of tesponsibil-

| FROM page one

Ward is the Chairman of the
NIB Board at present.

The allegations were made
by Golden Gates MP Shane
Gibson in the House of Assem-
bly during Opposition question
time. '

Mr Gibson said: “If is my
understanding that there are
two members of the National
Insurance Board who are either
still members or former mem-

MP claims two NIB directors ‘resigning’

bers who resigned their posi-
tions to be able to get contracts
with National Insurance. That
they were privy to confidential

information as a result of them |:

being board members and so
they have either resigned or are
in the process of resigning in
order to sign contracts with
National Insurance. Is the Min-
ister responsible for National

Insurance aware of anything
like that?”

Mr Ingraham responded: “I
wish’to advise the member for

Golden Gates that the Chair- '

man of the National Insurance

Board will see the Minister at
Spm today.”

The National Insurance

+ Board website lists the present

Board of Directors as consisting

Etienne Bowleg, Evan Dean,
Van Diah, Debbie Ferguson,
Nicole Martin, Brian Nutt, John

. Pinder’, Dr Robin Roberts,

Winston Rolle and Dennis
Williams.

A message left for Mr Ward
yesterday was not returned.
Algernon Cargill, the Director
of the NIB; said he would
refrain from commenting until

’ the Minister of National Insur-

ance (Mr Ingraham) responds
further. ‘ ;

FROM page one

that the Member for Golden Gates had
not “properly recalled” what had hap-
pened.

“I did not provide a list or names of
persons being called. I provided a table
which reflected something that was sent
by the then Minister responsible for
Batelco about who he was seeking to
get hired at the place. ‘And I never called
the names. They insisted the list be
tabled. This was not a list of persons
hired by the corporation. This was a list
of persons seeking to be hired by them at
the corporation,” Mr Laing exclaimed.

Row in House

Not taking the matter lightly, Mr Gib-
son got back to his feet and reiterated
that some of these same persons had

telephoned him, concernéd at the fact -

that their names were being bandied
about in Parliament.

Seeking to end the continual back and.
forth on the. matter, Prime Minister:
Hubert Ingraham joined the discussion

and told Parliamentarians that in his 34
years in Parliament, it was not the com-

mon practice for such revelations to be

made in the House of Assembly. While
clarifying that his government has no

fundamental objection in doing so, Mr
Ingraham said, this matter will raise con-
cerns among members in the communi-
ty about “when you were hired, and who
you were hired by.”

“In fact, from a political point of '
view,” Mr Ingraham hinted, “it maybe
to our advantage.” .

In total, some 20 persons were hired at.
ZNS since May 2, 2007, while some, 62
persons were hired for the entire five
years that the PLP were in office from -
May 2, 2002, to May 2, 2007. At the
Bahamas Telecommunications Compa-

ny Limited, 27 persons were hired since

May 2, 2007, compared to 167 hired
between May 2, 2002 and May 2, 2007.

“exceeds levels ever experi-
enced in The Bahamas and is
beyond anything ever contem-
plated by my Government.”

Mr Ingraham said he hoped
that through carrying out the
resolution exercise, it would
allow the public to “garner the
position and sense of the rep-
resentatives of the people
(MPs) on the proposed resort
development” and “ensure that
‘the Bahamian people are fully
informed on the requirements,
consequences and benefits
which are projected to result
for The Bahamas if the devel-
opment proceeds as now pro-
posed by the principals.”

The outstanding issues
between Baha Mar and Scotia
Bank, which led to the delaying
of the vote, refer to the esti-
mated $200 million debt owed
to the bank by Baha Mar, the
extinction of which is a condi-
tion set by the China Export-
Import Bank for the release of
the $2.45 billion term loan facil-
ity that will be used by Baha
Mar to finance the develop-
ment.

“It is expected that all out-
standing ‘matters will be
resolved within the next two-
week period,” said.the Prime
Minister, revealing that Baha .
Matr’s principals are set to meet
with Scotia executives in.
Toronto next week.

“There will be no deal unless
Scotia’s loan is satisfied. Sec-
ondly, there will be no deal
unless the Government of The °

‘Bahamas and the Chinese
Government exchange letters
saying ‘we approve in The
Bahamas’, and we get from the
Chinese Government at the
same time in the next hand, ‘we
approve here’ (China). They
will go ‘hand go, hand come’ -
at the same time and the same
place,” he added.

Speaking about the foreign
workers for Baha Mar’s labour
requirements — forecast as 71
per cent foreign and 29 per cent
Bahamian — will represent a
“complete reversal” of the ratio
of foreign to Bahamian labour
obtained during the construc-
tion of Kerzner International’s
development of Atlantis on
Paradise Island, which saw 30
per cent foreign labour partic-
ipation and 70 per cent
Bahamian.

. “The terms of the funding
obtained by the developers of
the (Baha Mar) resort include a
requirement that the over-
whelming majority, if not vir-
tually all of the workers to be
engaged on the.‘Core Project’,
over the life of the project, be

foreign workers — some 8,150
persons,” Mr Ingraham con-
tinued.

“What must be aatenniiied
is whether this invaluable ben-
efit of skills transfer and
improved exposure to new
technologies can or will occur
in a project where contact
between Bahamians and for-
eign experts is likely to be lim-
ited,” said Mr Ingraham, calling
such a transfer a “basic justifi-
cation” for the admission of
foreign labour.

The Prime Minister noted

- that in addition to these for-

eign labourers, it is! projected
that some 1,200 Bahamians will
be engaged in the construction
of the “non-Core project” - the
new West Bay Street, the new
Commercial Village and the
initial site preparation for the
“Core Project”, the resort itself.
Mr Ingraham outlined projects
with contracts potentially total-
ly $175 million which he said
will, or are intended tobe,
reserved for Bahamian con-
tractors. Baha Mar Vice Presi-
dent of Public Affair Robert
Sands said this figure is likely to
end up being around $250 mil-
lion.

“J have been advised that the
principals of Baha Mar are in
discussion with their Chinese:
partners and financiers with a
view to additionally, engaging
Bahamian contractors in a

“number of ‘trade packages’

related to the Core Project to
include general site clearing
and preparatory work, mason-
ry, dry wall, ceilings, painting,
electrical, mechanical, site secu-
rity, fencing, beach restoration,
remediation, and landscaping
having a total estimated value
of $40 million.

“Tt is further expected that
many of these jobs will carry
over to continued employment
in the ‘trade packages’ for the
Core Project I mentioned. This
we are informed is expected to
result in the engagement of
3,300 Bahamians at the height
of construction of the Core
Project,” he said.

The Prime Minister also
spoke to other. key components

of the project, which he said.

the government had an “oblig-
ation” to make clear to the
public. Primary among these is
the transfer of a large amount
of Government -owned Crown
land from Government to the
Baha Mar developers.

The total amount of land’

which would be transferred —

Dr Duane Sands mentioned as
nossible Long Island candidate

FROM page one

be the FNM’s candidate of choice

for the area.
“During the course of my dis-

cussions throughout the length -

and breath of Long Island in
meeting with leading FNM gen-
erals and personalities, and social
and community leaders, I dis-
cussed a range of options with
these persons in terms of their
views about the present candi-
date, and their views about any
names that have been knocking
around.

“But the fact is no particular
candidacy was discussed. As far
as I am aware the present Mem-

with this transfer taking place
before any construction occurs,
according to conditions set by
Baha Mar’s financiers, the Chi-
nese Exim Import Bank —
totals 265 acres.

This encompasses parcels of :

land that include the old Hob-
by Horse Hall, land occupied
by the Wyndham Hotel and
Casino, the Nassau Beach
hotel, Fidelity Bank, the Cecil
Wallace-Whitfield Centre, the

Cable Beach Police Station,

Old West Bay Street, part of

’ Gladstone Road, Prospect

Ridge, Water and Sewerage
Corporation property and
BEC property.

Laying out the extent of the .

proposed development, the

‘Prime Minister noted that it is

set to be valued at $2.5 billion
and will comprise six hotels

_with approximately 3,500

rooms and condominiums, an
approximately 100,000sq ft casi-
no, 200,000sq ft of convention
facilities, a 20-acre beach and
pool experience, an 18-hole
golf course and a 60,000sq ft
retail village and additional res-
idential products.

The resolution tabled by the

~ Prime Minister stated that part

of the reason for the proposed
involvement of the foreign
labour component is the
demand for “completion of the
Project on a highly accelerated
schedule.”

“Baha Mar has specified-that
the aggregate number of non-
Bahamians required over the
course of the construction
phase is 8,150 with the peak
number at any given time being
5,000 non-Bahamians,” stated
the Prime Minister.

The resolution also added
that “the project, if undertaken
as proposed, will have immense
impact on the economy of The
Bahamas creating approxi-
mately 3,000 construction jobs
in addition to 7,000 new per-
manent jobs for Bahamians.”

Prime Minister Ingraham
noted that he felt a “more
appropriate time” for this to
happen would be on Wednes-
day, September 22, or Thurs-
day, September 23, when cur-
rently “unresolved matters”
between Baha Mar and Scotia
Bank are dealt with.

Speaking with the media
after parliament adjourned,
Opposition leader Perry
Christie said he was “intrigued
by the manner which the Prime
Minister presented” the infor-
mation to parliament, claiming

Mr Ingraham “presented the -

facts in the most negative way
he could portray it.”

Mr Christie echoed what
Baha Mar spokesman Mr
Sands also told the media in a
separate interview immediate-
ly following Mr Ingraham’s
presentation, which is that the
peak figure of 5,000 foreign
labourers would maintain for

‘No Baha Mar vote’ until Company resolves | ISSUE

only around six months during
the height of the four-year con-
struction period.

Mr Sands noted that the
‘average number of foreign
workers to be present at any
given time “is less than 1,900
per month over the life of the
project.”

Mr Christie added: “Cer-
tainly there will be a substantial
foreign labour component
because this is phase one, phase
two, phase three plus phase
four of Atlantis rolled into one.

’ This project is a huge project

that is being contemplated so it

is like looking at the entire.
’ Atlantis project taking place at

one time, plus more.”

The PLP leader said law-
makers are faced with the
“challenge” of how to, address
the question of rising unem-
ployment, school leavers with-
out jobs and criminality.

“There is an urgency for par-
liament to examine the chal-
lenges facing the Bahamian
people and to look at Baha
Mar and this proposal in the
context of the permanent sus-
tainable. contribution it will
make to Bahamians and their
employment,” said Mr Christie,
who nonetheless said his party
is “deeply concerned about
maximising” the contribution
made by Bahamian construc-

tion workers in the develop- ©

ment.

Mr Sands said Baha Mar was
pleased with the developments
in parliament and “is satisfied
that there will be a successful
conclusion to the meetings
between (Baha Mar) and the
Bank of Nova Scotia (so) that
we will be able to move this
project forward for the benefit
of all Bahamians.”

ber of Parliament remains the
Member of Parliament and would
in the absence of anything unto-
ward, or any decision that he chooses to make ata later stage, will
continue to represent the party and run on the party’s ticket as the
party’s candidate. And that is the position as it is.

“Certainly the present Member of Parliament has not
announced, nor has he communicated to me any intention to
demit office or not to seek re-election. And so, 1 certainly did not
have any discussions about any particular person or candidate,
although I listened to what the people had to say as to what their
views were and their hopes for the future would be,” the party
chairman said.

Having spent four days on Long Island last week meeting with
residents and “reconstituting” the party’s association, Mr Bethel
said he has held discussions with a cross-section pf FNM sup- |
porters.

While the names of at least four other persons, other than the
area’s current MP, were discussed “generally”, Mr Bethel said he
had to stress to these persons that Mr Cartwright had not indicat-
ed as 'yet any intentions to demit office. _

“I went to pains to stress that he (Mr Cartwright) has not indi-
cated his intentions not to run, and he is. deserving of our support
while he maintains his position and remains in office. And it is not.
helpful to write anyone’s political obituary when they are in the
land of the political living,” Mr Bethel added.

As to whether such open discussions could point to a possible
split in Mr Cartwright’s support among the party faithful in Long
Island, Mr Bethel said this is not so.

“I spoke with people all over. As one says, I went to the bars and
spoke with the ‘fellas on the street’. I spoke to ordinary persons
there. I spoke to persons at one or two watering holes. I spoke to
persons in the church yard. I went to a funeral, and I went to a
church service. So I spoke to ordinary citizens, and ordinary citizens
will have their ideas.

“But certainly Larry Cartwright remains the MP. He has not indi-
cated any intention not to run. And while there may. be persons,
who for various reasons might say well we may prefer this or we
may prefer that, there is not rift per se.

“Long Island is and remains FNM country and will respect,
and in my view will support the FNM’s candidate who at the pre-
sent time is and is likely to be Larry Cartwright,” he said.

New CAFL commissioner seeks to ‘refine’ league’s structure

By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter
rdorsett@tribunemedia.net

A CONTROVERSIAL end to
the 2009-10 season sets the stage for
a new administration in the Com-
‘monwealth American Football

League (CAFL), headed by a com- °

missioner seeking to “refine” the
structure of the league.

Dr Lynwood Brown will be
appointed as the new commissioner
of the CAFL for its upcoming sea-
son, seeking to reshape the admin-
istration and steer the league in a
positive direction.

“Despite what people may think,
this league actually has a very sound
structure in place,” he said. “What
my administration will look to do is

to refine that structure and direct
the league in a manner that will be
beneficial to its participants.”:

Last season’s championship title
game was never decided on the field
as the league’s top teams, the John
Bull Jets and the Orry J Sands Pros,
could not reach an agreement on
when to stage the championship
game.

The original date was re-sched-
uled by the Jets due to a prior com-
mitment from several team mem-
bers, setting off a seriés of events
which included the resignation of
league administrators, and a lengthy
debate over when the game would
be played.

Dr Brown, who previously served
as commissioner from 2002-04, said
his administration would seek

greater organizational structure and

’ provide chances at training and cer-
- tification for its coaches and referees.

“We want to host more interna-
tional events, and training opportu-
nities for our coaches and referees in
an effort to improve the product on
the field,” he said.

“We want to create a revenue gen-
erating league, and a more fan-
friendly environment for our spec-
tators, which would go a long way in
positively raising the profile of the
local league as it progresses.”

The CAFL sported four teams last
season, including. the Jets, Pros, V8
Fusion Stingrays, Defence Force
Destroyers and Kingdom Warriors.

Dr Brown said another of his goals
is for league expansion and re-estab-
lishing a connection with the league

in Grand Bahama.
“Expansion is something we are
interested in as we look to add more

' teams. We want to build a true part-

nership with the northein league in
Grand Bahama, not just in name but
in practice as well and look to incor-
porate them as more functioning
members of the league.”

Like other local sporting bodies
throughout the Bahamas, Dr Brown
said the CAFL will look to improve
its youth movement and garner
interest in a younger generation of
players, creating a farm system and
providing academic opportunities
abroad.

“My vision and dream is to ulti-
mately place more young students

_into high schools and universities in

the US through the opportunities

football can provide. The key to
attracting more young people and a
younger generation to the game is
education.

“We have to make an effort to
bring a greater understanding of the
game to parents, and teach them
that it’s not simply a violent smash-
mouth game of injuries,” he said.

“With professional players like
Devard Darling and Alex Smith
hosting their clinics like they do the
exposure of the game continues to
grow to a younger crowd. In the near
future we want to establish a rela-
tionship and reach out to the Min-
istry of Sports to establish a flag
league in schools as an early intro-
duction to the game.”

‘The CAFL season is scheduled to
kickoff in October.

By DOUG FERGUSON
AP Golf Writer

LEMONT; Ill. (AP) — His
swing was a mess, and so was
his marriage.

Tiger Woods figured he
could only deal with one
problem at a time. In this
case, golf had to wait its turn.

"Let's just say I've been
through a lot lately, and I did-
n't want to have any more
information," Woods said
Wednesday at the BMW
Championship. "I was trying
to get adjusted to my new life
and what that entailed, and it
was enough as it was. I didn't
have time to work on my
game. I was dealing with a lot
of other things."

‘In what turned out to be a
lost summer in the majors,
Woods tried to patch togeth-
er what he could with his golf
swing. His only teacher was a
video camera and his memo-
ry, and that wasn't nearly
enough to get him through
four rounds at Pebble Beach
and St Andrews, or the PGA
Championship. at Whistling
Straits.

The do-it-yourself approach
gave way to working with
Sean Foley, the Canadian-
born swing coach who again
was with Woods for an hour
during his pro-am at Cog Hill
for the BMW. Championship.

Foley first took video of
Woods a month ago at the
PGA Championship. Woods

_ already is seeing results. He

opened with a season-best 65
at The Barclays and wound
up with a tie for 12th. Last
week at the Deutsche Bank

‘Championship, Woods had

three rounds in the 60s for the
first time this year and tied
for 11th.

A top 10 for Woods used
to be called a slump. Now it's
progress.

He needed both results just
to keep playing in the FedEx
Cup playoffs, which have
reached the third round and
perhaps the most critical.
Woods went from 112th to

‘65th after the first round, and

to 51st after the second round.

That at least got him to Cog
Hill with the rest of the top 70
in the FedEx Cup standings.

Woods is the defending
champion and a five-time win-
ner at this public course in the
Chicago suburbs, winning last
year with a 62-68 weekend to
finish eight shots ahead of the
field.

"It's good to be back,"
Woods said, pausing to smile
before adding, "It's even bet-
ter to be in the event."

He thrives on this kind of
course, although he already
has shown this year that past
performance is meaningless
without a swing he can trust
and a good putting stroke. A
two-time winner at St
Andrews, he tied for 23rd. A
seven-time winner at: Fire-
stone, he had the worst tour-
nament of his career and fin-
ished at 18-over par.

Now that Woods appears
to be on an upward trend, this
week could be interesting.

"I'm headed in the right
direction," Woods said when
asked what a victory would
mean at this stage in his sea-
son. "It obviously would be a

PEYTON MANNING

Colts’ Manning
will adapt to
Tew rules —

INDIANAPOLIS (AP)
.— Peyton Manning is
ready to play by the NFL's
new rules on positioning
of the umpire.

Manning told reporters
Wednesday that the Indi-
anapolis Colts would
"adjust" to the new tweaks
announced a day earlier.

Manning and the Colts
were critical of how the

rules were enforced dur-
ing a preseason game at.
Green Bay almost two
weeks ago. The four-time
league MVP drew two
-penalties for illegal snaps
in that game.

Since then, the league
has modified the rules
twice. The umpire now
only has to be beyond the
deepest player in the
offensive backfield, not
established in position
before the ball is snapped.

Officials also have dis-
cretion to give the offense
a warning before penaliz-
ing the team. Manning said

that would only be done
- out of the "goodness of the
- Officials’ hearts."

Marshall gives
young Henne

TIA UU NI eee

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — A sheepish Chad Henne recalls
attempting the sort of desperation pass a young college quar-
terback would try: Under pressure, on his heels, heaving a

prayer to a tall teammate in the end zone.
_ More than once, Braylon Edwards came down with the ball
for a Michigan touchdown.

The same play might be in the Miami Dolphins' playbook,
now that Brandon Marshall's on the roster.

He's the Dolphins' most talented receiver since Irving Fryar
more than 15 years ago, easing Henne's burden going into his
first full season as an NFL starter. It begins Sunday at Buffalo.

Henne knows how to make the most of a big target. In 2004,
when he was a freshman and Edwards was a senior at Michigan,
they connected for 15 touchdowns. sg



NY (AP) — Buffalo Bills

son is expected to play in

using on Bengals,

not getting new deal

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. .
(AP) — Tom Brady says he's

_not thinking about a new con-
tract and is focusing on

preparing for the season
opener.

The current deal for the
New England Patriots quar-
terback expires after this sea-
son.

He said Wednesday he
loves.playing for the team but
has learned not to assume
anything and just wants to
focus on playing football.

Brady suffered. a season-
ending knee injury in the 2008
opener.

A contract agreement
before Sunday's first game
against the Cincinnati Ben-
gals would provide security
even if he's hurt again.

He said that getting a new
deal by Sunday isn't part of
his thoughts and he doesn't
know if he'll have one by the
end of the season. He said he
has a responsibility to the
team to focus on Sunday's
game.

Milk does a body good,
especially athletes

LONDON (AP) — At the
end of nearly every training
session, Matt Whitmore
downs a pint of milk straight
from the bottle.

"I do it pretty religiously,"
said Whitmore, 25, a gym
trainer in London. He first
started drinking milk after
exercise about 10 years ago

when he couldn't afford:

expensive supplements or
protein shakes. "Milk helps

me recover faster and I feel’

great afterwards," he said.

"And now, I hate to train .

without it."

Researchers are giving sci-

entific support to a view that
Whitmore vouches for from
experience: that milk may be
just as good or even better
than sports drinks for serious
athletes recovering from exer-
cise. The health benefits of
milk - which has carbohy-
drates, electrolytes, calcium
and vitamin D - have long
been established. But for ath-
letes, milk also contains the
two proteins best for rebuild-
ing muscles: casein and whey.

Muscles get damaged after
an intense bout of aerobic
exercise like running, playing
football, or.cycling. The casein
and whey proteins in milk are
precisely what the body needs
to regenerate muscles fast.

Glenys Jones, a nutrition-

“ist at Britain's Medical
Research Council, said milk's
protein content makes it an
ideal post-exercise drink.
"Milk provides the building
blocks for what you need to
build new muscles," said
Jones, who has no ties to the
dairy industry.

She said sports drinks main-
ly replace lost carbohydrates
and electrolytes, and don't
usually have the necessary
nutrients for muscles to regen-
erate themselves. —

Experts have generally
been divided over whether
milk outperforms sports
drinks. Dairy producers have
been eager to break into the
multibillion-dollar market,
often sponsoring research into
milk's athletic benefits that
some call biased. So,the
debate continues, but milk has
been getting a lot of atten-
tion.

Ina study published in the

milk following a training session at a gym in central London.
(AP Photo)

journal Applied Physiology,
Nutrition and Metabolism in
June, researchers found peo-
ple who drank milk after

_ training were able to exercise

longer in their next session
than people who had sports
drinks or water.

"It's the form of the carbo-
hydrate and the nutrients in
milk that is most important,"
said Emma Cockburn, a lec-
turer in sports coaching at
Northumbria University. in
northeast England who led
the study, which was partially
paid for by the dairy indus-
try. .
Cockburn advised athletes
to drink milk immediately
after working out. "The dam-
age caused:by exercise leads
to a breakdown of the pro-
tein structures in your mus-
cles, but that doesn't happen
until 24 to 48 hours later," she
said. If athletes drink milk
right after training, then by
the time it is digested, the
milk's nutrients are ready to
be absorbed by the muscles
that have been hurt.

Drinking milk also may
help athletes recover quicker
if they are performing multi-
ple times in a day. For people
who can't stomach the idea

of plain milk, experts recom-
mend adding some chocolate
or other artificial flavor. At
the Beijing Olympics, six-time
gold medallist Michael Phelps.
regularly downed a flavored
milk drink in between races.

Scientists at Loughborough
University have found low-
fat milk is better than sports
drinks for replacing fluids lost
during exercise. Scientists sus-
pect there may be two rea-
sons for that. Not only does
milk have’a lot of electrolytes,
but it is emptied from the
stomach more slowly than
sports drinks, keeping the
body hydrated for longer.

Though the vitamins and
proteins found in milk are
present in soy milk or dietary
supplements, experts say milk
has better proportions of
those nutrients.

Milk also may help athletes
shed fat and build muscle. In a
small Canadian study, experts
found women who drank milk
after lifting weights gained
about 4.4 pounds (2 kilos) of
muscle and lost about the
same amount of body fat.
Women who drank sports
drinks put on about 3.3
pounds (1.5 kilos) of muscle
but didn't lose any body fat.

"It may be that somie of the
components of milk - the pro-
tein, the vitamin D and the
calcium - act in a synergistic
fashion to promote fat loss,"
said Stuart Phillips, a profes-
sor of kinesiology at McMas-
ter University who led the
research. Phillips has advised
the Canadian Olympic Asso-
ciation about milk and the
dairy industry paid for part of
his research. .

But some experts warned
that drinking milk after exer-
cise isn't for everyone.
Catherine Collins, a spokes-
woman for the British Dietet-
ic Association and a dietician
at London's St George's
Trust, said while milk may be
beneficial for elite athletes
who burn thousands of calo-
ries a day during their inten-
sive training, occasional gym-
goers may be better off drink-
ing. sports drinks or plain

_water.

"If you're just a gym bunny
trying to lose a bit of weight,
water is probably sufficient
after exercise," she said, warn-
ing that chocolate milk in par-
ticular could add unwanted
calories.

At the Vancouver
Olympics, dairy farmers
trucked in about 85,000 extra
quarts (80,000 liters) of choco-
late milk. Canadian athletes
won a record-setting 14 gold
medals. "I don't know if the
milk helped, but it can't have
hurt," Phillips said.

Still, even those who pro- .

mote milk as a recovery drink
say it cannot entirely replace
sports drinks. Because it is
harder to digest, people
should only drink milk after
they are finished exercising,
not during.

In comparison, sports

‘ drinks like Gatorade have

easily digestible sugars so ath-
letes can chug it during events
to get an instant boost.
Whitmore says it may be a
tough sell to persuade people
to swap their sports drinks or
even water, ‘for milk. "Most
gym goers have very particu-
lar routines," he said,
acknowledging he takes a bit
of ribbing for his milk habit
from his rugby teammates.

"They call me the Milky Bar

kid."

In friendly, Argentina defeats
World Cup winner Spain 4-1

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) — Argentina strik-
er Carlos Tevez may consider retiring from internation-
al play before the 2014 World ‘Cup in Brazil because of
the physical toll on his body.

The 26-year-old Tevez said he has been worn down by
the exhausting nature of the game and all the league
and national team matches. He has played for Boca
Juniors, Corinthians, West Ham, Manchester United —
and now Manchester City. ;

"I'm tired. I'm 26 — I'm old," Tevez said after scoring
Tuesday in Argentina's 4-1 victory over World Cup win-
ner Spain.

Tevez didn't suggest he would-retire immediately from
international play, which is good news for Argentina as it
prepares to host next year's Copa America — the conti-
nental championship.

"I'm still into it; to play, to be there," he said. "But I
don't know if I will make it until 2014. I don't know. In
reality, I think it will be tough." ;

"To be on the national team you have to be 100 per
cent and play with all you have. I'm not blaming anyone.
It's my issue. It's a physical question. You can't play on
the national team at 60 per cent."

LONDON (AP) — France's recovery from

a humiliating World Cup finally began with a

first win in European Championship qualifying

lands earned second straight victories.

The French had begun with a shock loss in
Group D to Belarus on. Friday, bu} Karim
Benzema and Florent Malouda fired them to

Italy and England also put miserable World

Switzerland, while Italy cruised to a 5-0 victo-
ry over the Faeroe Islands.

Miroslav Klose's double helped Germany
beat Azerbaijan 6-1, and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
also netted twice for the Dutch in a 2-1 victo-
ry over Finland.

Meanwhile, newly crowned world champion
Spain was beaten for the first time since South
Africa in a 4-1 friendly loss against Argentina.

Spain, which hadn't conceded four goals for
a decade, was 3-0 down by halftime after goals
from Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuain and Car-
los Tevez.

Sergio Aguero added Argentina's fourth in
injury time after Fernando Llorente pulled
one back for Spain, giving interim coach Ser-
gio Batista his second win.

Having lost its last four games, France had
no room for error in Bosnia. But it took until
the 72nd minute for Benzema, who had recov-
ered from a sore ankle, to put the visitors
ahead with a left-footed strike after turning a
defender.

Malouda doubled the French lead six min-
utes later to give Laurent Blanc his first win
since taking over from former coach Raymond
Domenech after the fist-round exit in South
Africa.

"This match summarized all the good things
I saw during our preparations but that we
failed to put in place against Belarus," Blanc
said. "It could be the start of something good."

France is third in Group D behind Albania
and Belarus, which both have four points.

_Hamdi Salihi's goal led Albania to a 1-0 win

over Luxembourg, while Belarus was held 0-0
by Romania.

Italy looked a shadow of the side that strug-
gled to beat Estonia 2-1 on Friday.

At his home ground, Fiorentina's Alberto
Gilardino headed Italy ahead after 11 min-
utes against the Faeroe Islands after 11 min-
utes.

Daniele De Rossi and Antonio Cassano

added further goals before halftime, while sub-

stitute Fabio Quagliarella netted from close
range in the 81st and Pirlo completed the rout
in the 90th.

Italy has a two-point lead in Group C over
Serbia, which was held to a 1-1 draw by Slove-
nia.

Adam Johnson added another in the 69th,

months for insulting anti-doping officials, the
team lost 1-0 to Norway, having only man-

moved up to second by beating Iceland 1-0 in
its first qualifier after Thomas Kahlenberg’
injury-time goal.

Germany's 6-1 victory over Azerbaijan
keeps it ahead of Turkey in Group A on goal
difference. Turkey beat 10-man Belgium 3-2

Serbia knocks
defending

champ Spain

out of worlds

By BRIAN MAHONEY
AP Basketball Writer

ISTANBUL (AP) — Serbia knocked
defending champ Spain out of the world
championship Wednesday when Milos
Teodosic made a long 3-pointer with 3.1
seconds left for a 92-89 quarterfinal victo-
ry.: ;

Spain erased an eight-point deficit in
the final four minutes to tie it on Marc

Gasol's basket with 25 seconds remain- .

ing. After a timeout, Serbia patiently ran
its offense until Teodosic — one of seven
on three-pointers at that point — pulled
up from straightaway, well beyond the
arc.

"He's a great player and he has a great
feeling for the big shot," Spain coach Ser-
gio Scariolo said. ;

The Spaniards couldn't get a final shot
off, with Jorge Garbajosa losing the ball
after a timeout. Serbia's players celebrat-
ed at midcourt as Spain's Sergio Llull
kicked the ball deep into the stands.

"I think it was a very, very tough game.

Maybe the best one until now in Istan-
bul," Serbia coach Dusan Ivkovic said.
_ Avenging a loss in last year's European
championship game, Serbia advanced to
face Turkey or Slovenia in a semifinal
game Saturday.

"It's very difficult to forget this kind of
game, but we have to try to forget every-
thing that happened tonight because in



third time in Turkey. They were without

‘pionship.

two days we will play in the semifinals,"
Teodosic said.

Marko Keselj and Novica Velickovic
scored 17 points apiece for Serbia, while
Dusko Savanovic added 15. The Serbians
were 15 of 30 from three-point range,
exploiting the zone seemingly every time
Spain used it.

"We were not able to stop them on the
long shots," Spain guard Juan Carlos
Navarro said. "That's why we lost and I
believe that's why they deserved to win.".

Navarro scored 27 points and Garba-
josa, the former Toronto Raptors forward
who recovered from a severe leg injury,
added 18.

But the Spaniards, considéred the co-
favourites along with the United States
coming into the tournament, lost for the

their best player, Lakers All-Star Pau
Gasol, then lost point guard Jose Calderon
of the Raptors shortly before the tourna-
ment. ‘

The champions in Japan four years ago
now will be forced to qualify for the 2012
Olympics at next year's European cham-

Teodosic, one of the two Serbia players
suspended for a brawl in an exhibition
game against Greece, finished with 12
points. Center Nenad Krstic of the Okla-
homa City Thunder, the other suspended
Serb, finished with 13 points and nine
rebounds.

UN officials: About 500 women raped in Congo in July, August

By NEIL MacFARQUHAR

UNITED NATIONS —
Approximately 500 women
were raped in eastern Congo
in July and August, demon-
strating that both rebel militias
and government troops used
sexual violence as a weapon,
two senior United Nations offi-
cials said Tuesday, according to
the New York Times News Ser-
vice.

Since U.N. officials first dis-
closed late last month that large
numbers of women had been
gang-raped, the number report-
ed has grown, to 242 victims:
from at least 150 concentrated
in 13 villages in North Kivu
Province, including 28 minors.

But Atul Khare, the deputy
head of peacekeeping and the
senior official sent from U.N.
headquarters to investigate,
told the Security Council on
Tuesday that at least 257 more
women had been raped else-
where in North Kivu and South
‘Kivu provinces, for a total of
at least 499 victims.




LS? ipereek be Oa tate eas ay

who leads a néw U.N. office
concentrating on sexual vio-
lence in armed conflict, told the
Council that the rapes in the
villages in North Kivu -"were
not an isolated incident but part
of a broader pattern of wide-
spread systematic rape and pil-
lage."

She cited horrific accounts
from women attacked around
Kibua, a village in North Kivu,
that militiamen shoved their
hands inside women's sexual
organs to look for hidden gold
and that the village was sur-
rounded so that no one could
run away. Both U.N. officials
said that the organization must
work harder to bring the per-
petrators or their commanding
officers to trial. They also said
that the United Nations must
be more active in trying to pre-
vent rapes as soon as they hear
that rebel fighters are on the
move.

The first reports of clashes
came in late July, but it took
weeks for word of the large
number of rapes to emerge.

The latest victims include 21
girls between 7 and 21 years
old, and six men, he said.

"Our actions were not ade-
quate, resulting in unacceptable
brutalization of the population
of the villages of the area," he
said of the peacekeeping mis-
sion, while noting that ulti-
mately the protection of civil-
ians was the job of the govern-
ment of the Democratic
Republic of Congo.

Over 15,000 rapes were
reported annually in both 2008
and 2009, Khare said. The latest
reported include 10 rapes car-
ried out in August by govern-
ment soldiers, attacks that have
been referred to a military pros-
ecutor.

The Security Council will
remain focused on the issue to
try to better understand the
underlying causes, said Susan
E. Rice, the American ambas-
sador to the United Nations.
The rapes occur in villages near
the transit routes for the lucra-
tive trade in illegally extracted
minerals. Margot Wallstrom,

KINGSTON (PANOS) -
The Jeffrey Town massive

were a jumping’ mass of

colours as they danced to the
tunes of their favourite
entertainers at the Voices

tion Project’s third commu-
nity intervention in St. Mary
recently.

“This is truly one of the
best concerts I have been to
in a while,” said Marcia

frey Town also saw perfor-
mances from their own DJ

These artistes have attend:
ed workshops and recorded
songs aimed at educating the
population on issues relat-
ing to climate change, The
concert was emceed by vet-
éran broadcaster Pattick

The day started with a tree

planting exercise where the
Voices for Climate ‘Change
Education artistes and
youngsters from the com-
munity planted over ten
shade trees in the school
yard at the Jeffrey Town Pri-
mary School. The trees were
donated by the Forestry
Department of Jamaica.
Immediately following the
tree-planting was a discus-
sion on the farming commu-
nity’s knowledge of climate

Environment and Planning
Agency (NEPA) on practis-

_es that can be adopted to

FIGHTING in the Somali capital has
killed more than 230 people in the past two
weeks and fleeing civilians are so desper-
ate they are giving away their last posses-
sions for seats on a bus out of the city, U.N.
officials said, according to Associated Press.

The continuous fighting started Aug. 23
after the militant group al-Shabab threat-
ened a "massive" war against government
forces, who are backed by African Union
peacekeepers.

The U.N. says some 230 people have been
killed, 400 wounded and at least 23,000 dis-
placed since fighting began and that civilians

who remained were too frightened to ven-

ture out for food.

On Tuesday, three civilians were killed
in Somalia's capital of Mogadishu and 23
others were wounded, said ambulance ser-
vice director Ali Muse.

Somalia has not had an effective govern-
ment for nearly 20 years. Militants, some
of whom have pledged allegiance to al-Qai-
da, are trying to overthrow Somalia's weak,
U.N.-backed government and install a harsh
interpretation of Islamic law. The conflict is
also complicated by clan rivalries.

"My appeal to the international commu-
nity is not to send Somalis back to south
and central Somalia against their will," said
the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees,
Antonio Guterres, who was beginning a

He did not say which countries were send-

ing Somali refugees back or how many, but
Kenyan security services sometimes deport
Somalis back across'the border.. - -
. Somalia generates the largest number of
refugees in the world after Iraq and
Afghanistan. At the end of August, there
were more than 1.4 million Somalis dis-
placed within the country and more than
614,000 Somali refugees.

Among them was Asha Mohamed Nur,
who fled with her three children in June
after an explosion caused by a rocket-pro-
pelled grenade destroyed her home, killed
her husband and severely burned her leg.

"There is all the time fighting. Hizbul

‘Islam, al-Shabab, government, they are all

fighting," she said, naming the two main
insurgent factions. "Nowhere is safe, not
even your home."

More than 200,000 Somalis are estimated
to have fled their homes this year.

Others, though, say they have nowhere
safer to go. —

"I fled from Mogadishu two times before
— my children were almost dying without
water and food plus the wind, rain, sun and
dust since we did not have a shelter," said
Mohamud Ali, a father of seven who lives in
Howlwadag district south of the city. "I
finally came back to my house waiting my
destiny."

Gunmen burst into factory in Honduras, kill 15

TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras __ gangs

been scheduled before Zelaya's

MEN armed with assault rifles

‘burst into a shoe factory and

opened fire Tuesday, killing at
least 15 workers and wounding
eight, Honduran authorities said,
according to Associated Press.
National police spokesman
Leonel Sauceda called the attack

in the northern city of San Pedro’

Sula "a massacre." He said the

motive had not yet been deter-.

mined.

Sauceda said police were not
ruling out the possibility the
attack may have been related to
drug trafficking. San Pedro Sula
has been a hotbed of gunbattles
between drug traffickers and
among the country's Mara street

Saticeda said at least four men
using assault rifles were involved
in the attack at the small shoe
factory. He said 23 employees
were present and all were either
killed or wounded.

Also Tuesday, thousands of
supporters of former President
Manuel Zelaya staged street
protests in the capital, Teguci-
galpa, to demand the ousted
leader's return as well as a 15
percent rise in the minimum
wage, currently about $290 a
month.

Zelaya was removed in a June
2009 coup, and his term,expired
in January. He was replaced by
Porfirio Lobo, who won a fall
presidential elections that had

ouster.

Lobo has said Zelaya, who
has been living i in the Dominican
Republic, is welcome to return
to Honduras, but says he must
face charges of fraud, usurping
other institutions' powers and
falsifying documents.

The demonstrators included
unionized workers, government
employees and students. They
blocked traffic in at least two
points in the city, and demon-
strations were held in other
cities.

One small group of masked
protesters shattered windows at
a television station, the offices
of the country's Human Rights
Commission and a bank branch.

stoning
in [ran
adultery
case
‘brutal’

By FRANCES D’EMILIO
- Associated” Press

Writer

(AP) — The Vatican has
raised the possibility of
using behind-the-scenes
diplomacy to try to save
the life of an Iranian wid-
ow sentenced to be
stoned for adultery.

In its first public state-
ment on the case, which
has attracted worldwide
attention, the Vatican
decried stoning Sunday as
a particularly brutal form
of capital punishment.

Vatican spokesman the
Rev Federico Lombardi
said the Catholic church
opposes the death penal-
ty in general.

It is unclear what
chances any Vatican bid
would have to persuade
the Muslim nation to
spare the woman's life.
Brazil, which has friendly
relations with Iran, was
rebuffed when it offered
her asylum.

Sakineh Mohammadi
Ashtiani was convicted in
2006 of adultery. In July,
Iranian authorities said
they would not carry out
the stoning sentence for
the time being, but the
mother of two could still
face execution by hang-
ing for adultery and other
offenses.

Her son, Sajad, told the
Italian news agency
Adnkronos that he was
appealing to Pope Bene-
dict XVI and to Italy to
work to stop the execu-
tion.

Lombardi told The
Associated Press that no
formal appeal had
reached the Vatican. But
he hinted that Vatican
diplomacy might be
employed to try to save
Ashtiani.

Lombardi said in a
statement that the Holy
See "is following the case
with attention and inter-
est."

"When the Holy See is
asked, in an appropriate
way, to intervene in
humanitarian issues with
the authorities of other
countries, as it has hap-
pened many times in the
past, it does so not ina
public way, but through
_ its own diplomatic chan-
nels," Lombardi said in
the statement.

In one of the late Pope
John Paul II's encyclicals
in 1995, the pontiff laid
out the Catholic Church's
stance against capital pun-
ishment.

John Paul went to bat

es of death-row inmates
in the United States. One
of the first was the case
of Paula Cooper, who was
convicted of murdering
her elderly Bible teacher
when she was 15 but
spared the electric chair
by Indiana in 1989.

But that same year, a
papal appeal for clemency
to Cuba to spare a war
hero and three other
Cuban officers convicted

vatican:| EU decries ‘barbaric’ plans

to stone Iranian woman

By BRIAN MURPHY
and NASSER KARIMI

‘Associated Press Writers

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) —
The international crossfire
over Iran's stoning sentence
for a woman convicted of
adultery intensified Tuesday
with a top European Union
official calling it "barbaric"
and an Iranian spokesman
saying it's about punishing a
criminal and not a human
rights issue.

The sharp words from
both sides provide a snap-
shot of the dispute: Western:
leaders are ramping up pres-
sure to call off the sentence
for Sakineh Mohammadi -
Ashtiani and Iran is framing
it as a matter for its own
courts and society.

The case of the 43-year-
old mother of two also spills

_ over into larger and even

more complex issues for
Iran's Islamic leaders of
national sovereignty and
defense of their system of
justice.

Iranian authorities rou-
tinely defend their legal
codes and human rights
standards as fully developed
and in keeping with the
country's traditions and val-
ues. They have widely
ignored Western denuncia-

- tions over the crackdowns

after last year's disputed
presidential election.

Iranian authorities also
bristle at Western criticism
— including USS. State
Department human rights
reports — and say foreign
governments overlook
shortcomings in their own
systems and fail to hold
Western ally Israel account-
able.

Iran's Foreign Ministry
spokesman, Ramin
Mehmanparast, showed
Tuesday that the Islamic
state was willing to push

-back just as hard as the _
West — atleast with’

rhetoric.

"If release of all those
who have committed mur-' °
der is considered defending
human rights, all European
countries can ... free mur-

derers in'defense of human ~

rights," Mehmanparast told
reporters.

Ashtiani's stoning sen-
tence was put on hold in
July and is now being
reviewed by Iran's supreme
court. Iranian authorities
also say she has been con-
victed of playing a role in
her husband's 2005 murder.

But her lawyer, Houtan
Javid Kian, says she was
never formally put on trial
on the charge of being an
accomplice to murder and
was not allowed to mount a
defense.

At the European parlia-
ment, European Commis-
sion President Jose Manuel
Barroso said he was
"appalled" by the news of
the sentence. .

STONING SENTENCE: This undated file image made available by Amnesty International shows Sakineh
Mohammadi Ashtiani, mother of two who was sentenced to death by stoning in Iran on charges of adul-

tery.

"Barbaric beyond words,"
he said during his first State
of the Union address in
Strasbourg, France.

The case also has been
wrapped up in claims of
Iranian missteps and abuses.

Last month, Iranian
authorities broadcast a pur-
ported confession from Ash-
tiani on state-run television.
A woman identified as Ash-
tiani admitted to being an
unwitting accomplice in her
husband's killing. Kian said

he believes she was tortured

into confessing. .

Then on Monday, Kian
said he received word that
his client was lashed 99
times last week in a separate
punishment after British
newspaper ran a picture of
an unveiled woman mistak-
enly identified as Ashtiani.
The newspaper, the Times
of London, later apologized
for the error.

There was no official Iran-
ian confirmation of the new
punishment.

Iran has given no signal it
will bend easily to interna-
tional appeals. Even an offer
of asylum from Brazil — .

‘which is on friendly terms —

with Tehran — went
nowhere.

The Vatican has hinted of
the possibility of behind-the-
scenes diplomacy to try to

save her life.

French Foreign Minister
Bernard Kouchner called
the stoning sentence "the
height of barbarism." Earli-
er, a hard-line Iranian news-
paper, Kayhan, described
French first lady Carla
Bruni-Sarkozy as.a;" \Prgsti-
tute" for condet
stoning sentence.’

Mehmanparast, the For-
eign Ministry spokesman,
said the insult was not sanc-
tioned by the government.

USS. officials have so far
let European allies lead the
way over the case, prefer-
ring to keep up efforts to
enforce tighter U.N. and
American sanctions over
Iran's nuclear program. But
Secretary of State Hillary
Rodham Clinton said last
month that Washington
remains "troubled" by the
case and Ashtiani's "fate is
unclear."

Ashtiani's lawyer sees the
next critical period coming
next week. The moratorium
on death sentences during
the Muslim holy month of
Ramadan will end, and he
worries that an execution
could be then carried out
“any moment."

Stonings of men and
women were widely carried
out in the early years after
the 1979 Islamic revolution.

More recently, the punish-
ment has been imposed | less
frequently, but cases are’
rarely confirmed by authori-
ties and no official records
are released.

In January 2009, Iranian
judiciary, spokesman Ali

» Reza Jamshidi said two men

sthe,, ¥ a ae

convicted of adultery were
‘stoned to death the previous
month in the northeastérn
city of Mashhad.

Iran also reported a death

by stoning in July 2007 for a

man convicted of adultery.
The U.N: human rights chief
at the time, Louise Arbour,
condemned the execution as
a "clear violation of interna-
tional law."

Hangings are frequently
carried out in Iran, whose
legal system is a mix of civil
statutes and Quran-inspired
codes. Magistrates, who are
often Muslim clerics, have
wide latitude on sentences
for crimes that break moral
codes.

In December 2008, Iran-
ian authorities shut down
the office of a human rights
group led by Nobel Peace
Prize winner Shirin Ebadi,
whose efforts included
appeals to ban stonings.
Ebadi has not returned to
Iran since last year's re-elec-
tion of President Mahmoud
Ahmadinejad.

iran says it

has the right
fo har UN
inspectors

By NASSER KARIMI
Associated Press Writer

. TEHRAN, Iran (AP) —
Iran's nuclear chief said
Tehran has the right to bar
some UN inspectors from
monitoring its disputed
nuclear programme, the semi-
official ISNA news agency
reported.

Ali Akbar Salehi's com-
ments were in response to a
report‘by the International
Atomic Energy Agency
expressing alarm about Iran's
decision to bar some of its
inspectors.

Iran recently stripped two
inspectors of the right to mon-
itor its nuclear activities after
they reported what they said
were undeclared nuclear
experiments.

ISNA also quoted Salehi as
saying Iran asked the agency
to replace the two and that it
has accepted the replace-
ments.

"This is our right as well as
the right of other members of
the agency to choose the

-inspectors," Salehi said late

Monday. —

"Basically, all member
nations select from.a list pro-
vided by the agency."

While all member states
select inspectors from an offi-
cial IAEA list, some Western
nations on the agency's 35-
nation board argue that
because Iran has banned
more than 40 inspectors over
the past four years,-a case
could be made that Tehran is
violating the agency's so-
called Safeguards Agreement.

The agreement is meant to
ensure that the IAEA can
monitor Iran's nuclear pro-
gramme without impediments
to make sure it is solely for
peaceful purposes.

. The West, led by .the-Unit-
éd States, suspects thafifan's ~
nuclear programme is geared
toward making weapons. Iran
denies the charge, saying the
programme is for peaceful

- purposes only.

Commenting on the latest
JAEA report, French Foreign
Minister Bernard Kouchner,
said it showed that Iran is still
enriching large amounts of
uranium "and this is not good
news."

In Washington, State
Department spokesman PJ
Crowley said the report
underscored the Obama.
administration's concerns
about a possible military
dimension to key aspects of
Iran's nuclear programme,
including uranium enrichment
and a heavy water research
reactor under construction. -

Salehi, also the Islamic
Republic's vice president,
urged the Vienna-based
atomic agency to steer a fair
and neutral course, arguing
that the IAEA's credibility
depended on that.

Meanwhile, Italy's for-

Frattini, told the ANSA
news agency that while
Italy respects Iranian sov-
ereignty and isn't in any
way interfering, "a ges-
ture of clemency from
Iran is the only thing that
can save her."

gy interests, in Iran.

China calls in Japan

envoy over boat collision

John Lennon's killer is
again denied parole in NY

BUFFALO, N.Y.

John Lennon's killer was again denied parole in New York,
nearly 30 years after gunning down the ex-Beatle outside the
musician's New York City apartment building, according to Asso-
ciated Press. A parole board decided not to release Mark David
Chapman after interviewing him Tuesday by teleconference at
Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York.

It was Chapman's sixth appearance before the board since
becoming eligible for parole in 2000. He will be eligible again in
2012. °

Chapman, 55, had been scheduled to appear last month, but the
hearing was postponed by parole officials, who said at the time they
were.awaiting additional information. They did not elaborate.

After Tuesday's decision, the board wrote to Chapman that it
remains concerned about "the disregard you displayed -for the
norms of our society and the sanctity of human life when, after care-
ful planning, you travelled to New York for the sole purpose of
killing John Lennon."

The panel said "release remains inappropriate at this time and °
incompatible with the.welfare of the community."

Among those who have opposed his release is Lennon's now 77-
year-old widow, Yoko Ono, who said last month that she believed
Chapman is a potential threat to her family and perhaps himself.

INSPECTION: In this photo released by Japan Coast Guard, a Finan Coast Guard boat, foreground, goes by a Chinese fishing boat which Japan
Coast Guard officers are on board for inspection after it collided with two Japanese patrol vessels near a chain of disputed islands known as
Senkaku in Japanese or Diaoyu in Chinese in the East China Sea, Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2010. The collisions occurred near the islands claimed by
both countries after the ship received repeated warnings from Japan’s coast guard to move out of the waters, officials said.

CHI-CHI ZHANG,
Associated Press Writer
BEWING

Diplomatic tensions between China
and Japan escalated Wednesday when
Beijing called in Japan's ambassador
after a Chinese fishing boat collided
with two Japanese patrol'vessels near a
chain of disputed islands and Tokyo
arrested the boat's captain, according
to the Associated Press.

Chinese Vice Foreign Minister Song
Tao summoned Japanese Ambassador
Uichiro Niwa and urged Japan to stop
the "illegal interception" of Chinese
fishing boats, the official Xinhua News
Agency reported late Tuesday.

In Tokyo, Japan Coast Guard
spokeswoman Akane Yonemori said
Wednesday that the 41-year-old Chi-
nese captain of the fishing boat had
been arrested for allegedly obstruct-
ing public duties in connection with
Tuesday's collision near the chain of
islands in the East China Sea. She gave
no further details.

No injuries were reported from the
two separate collisions that occurred

within 40 minutes, Japan Coast Guard

spokesman Yosuke Oi said. The two ..

Japanese patrol vessels sustained minor
damage. It was unclear if the PISS
ship was damaged.

The collisions happened in Japan-
ese territorial waters off the north-
western coast of Japan's Kuba island,
just north of uninhabited, disputed
islands known as Senkaku in Japan-
ese and Diaoyu in Chinese. About 120
miles (190 kilometers) east of Taiwan,

the islands are controlled by Japan but :

are also claimed by China and Taiwan.

Inspection

The collisions occurred after the
Japanese patrol vessels ordered the
Chinese ship to stop for an inspection
over alleged violation of international
fishing laws after it repeatedly ignored
earlier warnings to: exit the: area, Oi
said.

The Chinese trawler, carrying a crew
of 15, first collided with the Japanese
patrol boat Yonakuni, slightly damag-
ing its stern. About 40 minutes later,

den turn and collided into another

.patrol vessel, the Mizuki, causing a

dent on its starboard side and damag-

‘ing its railings, Oi said.

Jiang Yu, a spokeswoman for Chi-
na's Foreign Ministry, told a regular
news conference Tuesday that Beijing
had been in contact with Japan over
the.incident and was concerned about
the situation.

Jiang said China reiterated its claim
to the Diaoyu Islands and its adjacent
islets and urged Japanese patrol boats
in the area against any "so-called law
enforcement activities or any actions
that would jeopardize Chinese fishing
boats or Chinese people."

"We are keeping a close eye on the
developments and reserve the right to
make a further response," she said.

Japanese officials do not believe the
boat is carrying any activists attempting
to make a political statement on the
island, Oi said. Japan has lodged a
protest with China several times over
the entry of Chinese vessels into waters
near the islands. Activists from Hong
Kong and Taiwan have also sailed to
the islands to make territorial claims.

‘| Iraq displays hundreds
of recovered artifacts

By BARBARA SURK
Associated Press Writer

BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraq

displayed hundreds of recoy-
ered artifacts Tuesday that
were among the country's
looted heritage and span the
ages from a 4,400-year-old
statue of a Sumerian king to a
chrome-plated AK-47 bear-
ing Saddam Hussein's image.

The 542 pieces are among
the most recent artifacts
recovered from a heartbreak-
ing frenzy of looting at muse-
ums and archaeological sites
after the.2003 U.S.-led inva-
sion and in earlier years of
war and upheaval. The thefts
swept a stunning array of
priceless antiquities into the
hands of collectors abroad.

So far, 5,000 items stolen
since 2003 have been recov-
ered. And culture officials
said they hoped the display
would encourage more
nations to cooperate in the
search for 15,000 pieces still
missing from the Iraqi Nation-
al Museum, one of the sites
worst-hit by looters after the
fall of Baghdad seven years
ago.

Museum

The director of the Nation-
al Museum, Amira Alawan,
praised the international com-
munity for helping Iraq find
and recover its cultural her-
itage. But he said not all coun-
tries are cooperating, naming
Spain and Lebanon as among
the nations that have refused
to hand over missing Iraqi
artifacts.

The items displayed at the
Foreign Ministry included
relics of the world's most
ancient civilizations.

The most prominent was
the headless statue of a king

-from the ancient Sumerian

civilization, which is more
than 4,000 years old. It was
discovered in the 1920s at the

ancient city of Urin southern .

Iraq and was stolen from the
National Museum.

The FBI listed its theft.

among the world's top 10 art
crimes. Experts say the statue,
carved from black diorite with
cuneiform inscriptions along
the back and the shoulders,
is the oldest known represen-
tation of an Iraqi monarch.
Officials with the U.S.
Department of Homeland
Security located the statue in
the United States in May 2006

and handed it oyer to_Iraqi

diplomats in Washington two
months later.

Among the newest pieces
of Iraq's recovered past was a
chrome-plated AK-47 with a
pearl hand grip and a small
image of Saddam next to the
gun sight. It was taken from
Iraq to the U.S. as a war tro-
phy by an American solider
who found the rifle during a
2007 raid in Baghdad.

"Today is a celebration in
Iraq. This is bringing back the
civilization and the cultural
heritage of Iraq," said
Mohammed Muhsen Ali,

‘ deputy director of the Nation-

al Museum.

Iraqi and world culture offi-
cials have for years struggled
to retrieve looted treasures
but with little success.

The U.S. military was heav-
ily criticized for not protecting
the National Museum's trove
of relics and art after Bagh-
dad's fall in 2003. Thieves ran-
sacked the collection, steal-
ing or destroying priceless
artifacts that chronicled some
7,000 years of civilization in
Mesopotamia, including the
ancient Babylonians, Sume-
rians and Assyrians.

TO DISCUSS STORIES ON THIS PAGE LOG ON TO WWW.TRIBUNE242.COM

The display also included
more than 5,000-year-old
cylindrical seals used by the
Sumerians to seal written doc-
uments and a centuries-old
pair of golden earrings from
the ancient Assyrian city of
Nimrud, just south of the pre-
sent day northern city of
Mosul.

Earrings

The earrings were discov-
ered in 1988 under the floor
of a palace belonging to an
Assyrian. king. They were
stolen from the National
Museum two years later and
found at’an auction house in
New York in 2009.

The latest recoveries, made
over the'past five years, were
hailed as a great achievement
by government officials who
vowed to continue the battle
to reclaim looted artifacts.

"We will not stop," said
Foreign Minister Hoshyar
Zebari. "We will continue our
efforts in order to return the
last precious pieces to their
legitimate owners."

Iraq's ambassador to the
U.S. Samir Shakir Sumaida'ie
told reporters at the event
that more than 600 pieces
have also been unaccounted
for since last year when they
were transported by the
American military from the
U.S. to. Baghdad and deliv-
ered to the office of the Prime
Minister Nouri al-Maliki.

"We have confirmation
from the U.S. military that the
pieces that include mostly
cylindrical seals reached the
prime minister's office last
year, but until now we have
no information on their cur-
rent location," Sumaida'ie
said. The prime minister's
office could not immediately
be reached for comment.

Hermine oe 4

gives south
Texas
another
tropical
lashing

By PAUL J WEBER
Associated Press Writer

RAYMONDVILLE,
Texas (AP) — Tropical Storm
Hermine gave.a wet and
windy punch to Texas on
Tuesday but left only minor
scrapes in the storm-weary

Rio Grande Valley, which is .

proving resilient this hurri-
cane season after taking a
third tropical system on the
chin.

Hermine lost steam after
crossing into Texas with trop-
ical storm strength. A peeled-
back motel roof in the coastal
farming town of Ray-
mondville and scattered pow-
er outages were. about the
worst leftover from the gusty,
drenching storm that came
and went quickly after creep-
ing up on Texas and Mexico
in the warm Gulf waters over
the long holiday weekend.

"Il think we're lucky. It
could've been worse," said
Art Nelson, sizing up the
hulking aluminum shed that
collapsed on a farming plow
at his John Deere store in
Raymondville.

Mexico didn't get off as
easy. Hermine knocked out
power for several hours in
Matamoros and damaged
about 20 homes, whose inhab-

_itants were among 3,500 peo-
ple who evacuated to shelters.

About 1,000 families were
still in shelters Tuesday morn-
ing. Authorities in Mexico
said there were no reports of
serious injuries or death,
which was welcome news
‘after. 12 people in Mexico
died in flooding caused by
Hurricane Alex earlier this
summer.

Texas also had no reports
of serious injuries, and evac-
uations orders weren't neces-
sary even in the most low-
lying regions. It was another
sigh of relief for the flood-
prone Rio Grande Valley,
which got lashed by Alex at
the start of the summer and
soaked by another tropical
system in July.

So damp is the area that

only last week did Hidalgo .

County finally put away its
last water-pumping machine.
But much of the 5 inches to a
foot of rain from Hermine fell
harmlessly in the. Gulf, and
flooding was limited to only
minor nuisances.

The storm made landfall
early Tuesday. in northeast-

ern Mexico with winds of up
to 65 mph (100 kph), arriving
near the same spot as Alex.
But Hermine was expected to
cover more of the US than
Alex, which swiped Texas in
June as a Category 1 storm
before plunging southwest
and breaking up over Mexico.

Forecasters expect Her-
mine's remnants. to spread as
far north as Oklahoma and
Kansas. Flash flood advisories

remained in effect for coun-

ties in path of the slowly dis-
solving storm.

"This is going to be much
more of a memorable storm
than Alex," National Weath-
er Service meteorologist
Joseph Tomaselli said.

In Mexico, authorities had
released water from some
dams to make room for rain.

It added more anxiety in the.

northeast cattle-ranching
region where residents
already live under the fear of
a bloody turf war between
drug cartels. Hermine struck
around the same area where
72 migrants were killed two
weeks ago in what is believed
to be the country's worst drug
gang massacre to date.

By Tuesday afternoon,
lights were gradually turning
back on for about 50,000 peo-
ple who lost power. Practical-
ly all of Raymondville had
been in the dark after Her-
mine blew out signs, snapped
utility poles and skinned the
roof of the Best Rest Inn
motel.

Melodie Tamyl and Roy
Tamez were in their second-
story room when their ceiling
began bowing up and down.
They opened the door just in
time to watch the wood
awning flip violently back-

_ ward.

"I told: (Melodie) that
we've got to get out of here
right now," said Tamez, 52.
"The whole root i is about to

go. "

day to find half the roof over
their room gone and their
bedding soaked and soiled

’ with ceiling tile and mud.

They picked through soggy
clothes and food, salvaging
what they could.

Hermine made landfall
barely a day after becoming a
tropical storm. That left many
south Texas residents with lit-
tle notice, but also gave the
storm little time to build up
steam.

Best described as a number crossword, the task in Kakuro is
to fill all of the empty squares, using numbers 1 to 9, so the
sum of each horizontal block equals the number to its left,
and the sum of each vertical block equals the number on its
top. No number may be used in the same block more than
once. The difficulty level of the Conceptis Kakuro increases
from Monday to Sunday.
