in brothel raid

Two Bahamian men
and four Jamaican
women detained

By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

POLICE have arrested two
Bahamian men and four
Jamaican women at the for-
mer Mayfair Hotel, following
Tribune reports of prostitu-
tion at the West Bay Street
establishment.

Speaking with the officer in
charge of the Central Police
station, Chief Superintendent
Emerick Seymour, the police
expect to bring charges
against at least one man and a
woman early next week.

In addition to prosecution,
Chief Superintendent Sey-
mour said the Jamaican
women may face investiga-
tion by the Immigration
Department on the legitimacy
of their presence in the coun-

“We have been doing our
intelligence, and in addition,
we have been getting some
complaints of unscrupulous
behaviour being perpetrated
by individuals at certain estab-
lishments.

“So we have in recent days
arrested at least six individu-
als; two Bahamians and four
foreign nationals and we are
conducting our investigations
into the behaviour of these

individuals. I can also tell you
that we expect to charge at
least two of them,” he said.

Chief Superintendent Sey-
mour said police will continue
to have a presence in the area
to discourage further illegal
activity.

On Monday evening, The
Tribune conducted its own
investigations into the con-
tinuing activities at the for-
mer Mayfair hotel.

After reportedly being
“shut down” nearly two years
ago after a Tribune investiga-
tion in 2008, it appeared that
operations at the reported
brothel were up and running.

From a secure location, eye
witnesses observed one of the
“handlers” for the women,
who are said to be housed in
the complex, approach three
American male tourists and
offer them the girls’ “ser-
vices”.

In plain sight of the Fort
Charlotte Police Station, the
man asked the group if they
were interested in purchasing
any women for the night.

Avoiding his remarks, the
men continued down the
street, despite being followed
and assured by the handler
that whatever they were seek-
ing he could “supply.”

Call for improvement to
dog pound conditions

ANIMAL rights activists have
joined forces to their call on the gov-
ernment for conditions at the dog
pound to be improved as a matter of
urgency.

The group of charities that have
been fighting for conditions to be
improved at the Canine Control Unit
for more than 15 years say immediate action is required for
man’s best friend.

In a letter to Minister of Agriculture Larry Cartwright the
activists have outlined a list of shortfalls at the Canine Con-
trol Unit in the Botanic Gardens, Chippingham, where
unwanted dogs and cats are detained and euthanised.

Dogs and cats not claimed by their owners within four
days of being brought into the pound will be euthanised on
Fridays.

Williams, executive director Friends of the Environment. Pictured top right:VFour culverts were installed
under the road to open up the fragmented creek system.

RIENDS of the

Environment has

partnered with Dr

Craig Layman and

his research team from Florida

International University to

restore a vital tidal creek and
wetland area in Abaco.

Broad Creek, located just

south of Marsh Harbour near

30th

Camp Abaco has been blocked
for more than 30 years after a
road was constructed to build
the camp.

The restoration project
entailed removing a small area
of the road, installing culverts to
allow water flow under the traf-
fic, and then reforming the
road. The team then had to
selectively remove mangroves
that had encroached into the
channel after road construction
had taken place.

Kristin Williams, executive
director Friends of the Envi-
ronment, said: “Tidal creeks
and mangrove wetlands are
among the most important
habitats in the Bahamas
because of the important role
they play as nurseries for juve-
nile and adult fishes and inver-
tebrates. “For example, these
areas provide a safe home for
juvenile Nassau Grouper and
crawfish before these individ-
uals move to deeper waters as
adults. “Unfortunately, human
impacts are responsible for sig-
nificant wetland degradation
across the country, including
direct removal, dredging and
pollution.

“But perhaps the most com-
mon problem in the Bahamas is
fragmentation — the result of
some obstruction, typically a
road, that blocks the flow of
water from the ocean into the
wetland. Without this flow of
water, sediment builds up and
the water becomes extremely
hot, salty, and depleted of oxy-
gen, creating a harsh place for
animals to live.

“Fragmentation results in
drastic changes to the environ-
ment and the loss of critical fish
nurseries.”

Within the first 24 hours of
the culvert installation, sever-

_



al snappers and barracuda had
already begun to use the previ-
ously blocked area.

Dr Layman said: “Within just
a couple of years, the successful
restoration could lead to sig-
nificantly increased production
of snapper, including marked
increases of adult snapper on
nearby reefs.”

In addition to the scientific
and conservation components
of the restoration, Friends of
the Environment used the pro-
ject as an educational outreach
initiative for students and local
community members.

FRIENDS co-ordinated pre-
sentations in the local schools
and conducted field trips so that
the students could actually par-
ticipate in the restoration.

A total of 510 students and
adults assisted in reclaiming
around 28 acres of wetlands
that had been fragmented by
the road.

Additionally, around an area
of the same size on the down-
stream side of the road was
restored to its original state by
selectively removing man-
groves. Mrs Williams said:
“This creek restoration is such
a positive project that allows
the community to improve their
environment without losing
anything in the process. Those
who participated in the restora-
tion will have a sense of pride
knowing the long term ecolog-
ical benefits of their efforts.”

The volunteers were aided
in their efforts by the Ministry
of Works, Big Cat, Adele and
Timmy McDonald, The Nature
Conservancy, Schooner Bay,
and Serenity Point.

The participation of FIU was
made possible through a grant
from the National Science
Foundation (NSF).

IMPRESSIVE JOB: THE Bahamas Alliance for the Blind and Visually
Impaired is closing out Sight Awareness month with a “Praise For
Sight” gospel concert. It will be held this Sunday, October 31 begin-
ning at 7.30pm. The BABVI spent the entire month teaching persons
how to protect their eyes with the help of sponsors Lowes Wholesale
and Visine Sterile Eye Drops. Pictured is Jermaine Clarke, who did an
impressive job as the DJ at BBVI’s exhibition and eye screening at the
Mall at Marathon. Although blind, he was able to control the PA sys-
tem and music — proving that blindness does not mean the end of

accomplishment and aspiration.

US seeks common ground with China

WASHINGTON— The Obama admin-
istration faces a sea of obstacles, setbacks
and conflicts with China as Secretary of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton heads to the emerg-
ing global powerhouse Saturday for talks.

The two countries, with a long history of
mutual antagonism, are at odds over many
big issues: from currency and trade policy to
the U.S. naval dominance of the Asia-Pacif-
ic region, from U.S. arms sales to Taiwan
to China's human rights record and its ter-
ritorial disputes in the South China Sea.

But the Obama administration says it has
not given up on building stronger bonds with
Beijing, one of the world's fastest growing
economic and military powers.

In a speech in Honolulu Thursday, Clin-
ton talked tough, lumping China with North
Korea and Myanmar as sources of concern
about "deep-seated challenges" facing the
Asia-Pacific region.

She also urged Beijing to become the
United States’ partner in tackling a number
of regional and global challenges.

Despite the stormy U.S.-China relation-
ship, Drew Thompson, director of China
studies at the Nixon Centre in Washington,
sees the administration taking a stay-the-
course approach overall.

"It's only the Chinese who are down"
about the rocky side of the relationship,
Thompson said in an interview Thursday.

Kurt Campbell, the State Department's
top Asia policy official, said it is vital for
the U.S. to maintain "cool-headed" diplo-
macy with China.

"We all understand the stakes involved
and the importance for a positive, construc-
tive and, frankly, a relationship with a degree
of confidence between the United States
and China going forward," he said Tuesday
in describing Clinton's China visit.

Clinton was in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Fri-
day. She planned to meet with the Chinese
foreign minister there on Saturday before
making a brief visit to China's Hainan Island
with her Chinese counterpart, State Coun-
cilor Dai Bingguo. Their talks are intended
to raise some of the issues dividing the two
countries and pave the way for President
Hu Jintao's visit to Washington early next
year. Beijing's growing economic might and
more assertive role on the world stage make
its support crucial to many of President
Barack Obama's priorities — including halt-
ing the global spread of nuclear arms.

China is seen as the key to persuading
North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons
programme. China's dependence on Iran-
ian oil for its rapidly industrializing economy
makes it crucial to the success of U.N. sanc-
tions aimed at forcing Iran to negotiate over
its nuclear programme.

"We're seeking the mantra of a positive,
cooperative, constructive relationship," Jeff
Bader of the National Security Council said
Thursday.

He noted that Obama has met seven
times with Hu and three times with Premier
Wen Jiabao. "I guarantee you that's
unprecedented in modern history," Bader
said. But the US. has also felt compelled to
reassure Asian nations that the U.S. is not
ceding its major role in the Asia-Pacific
region, bolstering ties to longtime allies
Japan and South Korea.

In an unmistakable reference to China,
Clinton said Thursday that "military
buildups matched with ongoing territorial
disputes create anxieties that reverberate."
The disputes are a prominent part of the
backdrop to Clinton's stop on Hainan, a
tropical island east of Vietnam in the South
China Sea. A U.S. Navy spy plane was
forced to land there in April 2001 after it col-
lided with a Chinese fighter jet. The 24 US.
crew members were held for 11 days until
the Bush administration apologized for the
collision that killed a Chinese pilot.

China is also sparring with its neighbours
over control of the Spratly and Paracel
islands, claimed by Vietnam and other
nations as well as Beijing. The contested
islands straddle busy sea lanes that are a
crucial conduit for oil and other resources
fueling China's fast-expanding economy.

Clinton raised hackles in Beijing when
she said in July that the United States has a
national interest in the peaceful resolution of
competing claims to the islands.

The Pentagon has long expressed con-
cern about the rapid modernization of Chi-
na's military, particularly its focus on deploy-
ing ballistic missiles opposite Taiwan, the
semi-autonomous island that Beijing con-
siders a renegade province.

Defence Secretary Robert Gates accepted
an invitation to visit China and is expected to
go next year.

Shame on ZNS
for disrupting
TV, radio lines

EDITOR, The Tribune.

It would be appreciated if
you would please allow some
space in your editorial column
for this letter.

T have read the comments in
the newspapers, listened to the
radio and watched television in
regard to the anarchic behav-
iour of the staff of ZNS. The
comments of Fred Mitchell and
Philip “Brave” Davis were very
disappointing because they sat
in the same place in govern-
ment, and, in respect to Philip
“Brave” Davis, he has been in
the seat for 20 years.

During their terms, they
were aware of the problem
which successive governments
faced in trying to meet the pay-
roll for an over-staffed Civil
Service for many years. It is
noted that successive govern-
ments have had to make regu-
lar borrowings from the IMF
for salaries for the Civil Service

and to support the quasi-gov-
ernmental entities, of which
ZNS is only one.

In spite of this knowledge,
we have senior PLP politicians
seeking to mislead the public
with their political rhetoric and
deceitful statements to encour-
age this anarchy.

ZNS staffers, you are and
have been aware of the
impending downsizing. You
were also aware that you were
represented at the table by your
union representatives. When
you took your action against
this nation, you showed your-
selves incapable of abiding by
the rule of law which every
country must uphold.

Threats against the Head of

State of any country is tanta-
mount to a treasonous act. But
in The Bahamas., some of us
believe that we should be able
to do what we want, say what
we want, against whom we
want, with impunity.

If you know that we are in a
recession, and that you are not
creating sufficient income from
your company to keep you sol-
vent and meet your financial
obligations, what are you doing
going up against the state when
you are aware of these facts?

I say shame on all of you at
ZNS for disrupting this nation’s
television and radio lines. Do
things in decency and order and

Complain less — and achieve more

EDITOR, The Tribune.

“And the people murmured and complained
against Moses, saying ‘What shall we drink?’

“And he cried unto the Lord and the Lord
shewed him a tree which when he had cast into
the waters, the waters were made sweet. And
said, If thou will diligently hearken to the voice of
the Lord thy God and wilt do that which is right
in his sight, and will give ear to His command-
ments and Keep all His statutes, I will put none of
these diseases upon thee.” — Exodus 15: 24 - 27.

Yes, there is a group of young men and young
women in this country who do not care. Yes,
there is a group of people who did a poor job of
parenting. Yes, some twenty years ago, some
young people were making children. What I'm
saying is that, children were having children and
knew nothing about parenting. Yes, we have
inherited a “seed planting” curse that some of our
forefathers had left behind. This curse of this
“seed planter” is still upon a group of our males
and the only thing they are doing is planting
seeds into a ground and they hardly know what
they are producing. So what will we do is the
question?

Every time you turn around on the radio we
hear of someone complaining about the Gov-
ernment. The Government should do this and the
Government should do the next. They should
build the roads; they should not build the roads.
They should give them jobs; they should not give
them jobs. It's time to stop complaining and start
giving thanks to God. Some countries do not
have roads.

Thank God you have life and do something
constructive with it. Anytime the complaining
murmuring spirit rises up, begin to pray and
praise God and give Him thanks. “O give thanks
unto the Lord for He is good and His mercy
endureth forever.” Just ask yourself this ques-
tion: “If my parents had complained where would
Ibe?” If God would complain every time we did
something sinful what would happen to us?
Bahamas, stop complaining. There are some peo-
ple who have never been on an airplane and they
live in North America. Stop complaining; there
are some people who have never riden in a car.
There are some people in this world who have

never sat on a toilet bowl that can flush, stop
complaining. There are some people who have
never seen a pump to pump water. As a matter of
fact some people still draw water from wells.
Stop complaining, Bahamas. God don't like it.

Icall upon every man, woman, boy and girl to
pick a day and don't complain but just pray and
give God thanks. “But the people were thirsty for
water there, and they grumbled against Moses.
They said, ‘Why did you bring us up out of Egypt
to make us and our children and livestock die of
thirst?’” — Exodus 17:3 “Moses ended up crying
before the Lord, ‘What shall I do unto the people,
they are ready to stone me?’ But God fixed it for
Moses and they called the place Massah (testing)
and Meribah (quarreling) because of the chiding
or complaining.”— Exodus 17: 3-7.

Even God gets angry of complainers. Com-
plainers get nothing done. Complainers are none
achievers. Complainers are not useful. Com-
plainers are always looking for a way out.

Hanna was a praying woman and not a com-
plainer and she had so much to complain about,
but she prayed instead. Ruth said: “Entreat me
not to leave thee, or to return from following
after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and
where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall
be my people, and thy God my God.” This
woman could have complained, but she did not.
That is why she met Boaz and her life was
changed.

My brothers and sisters, Esther could have
also complained but she chose to do something
about the plot to destroy the Jews. -Esther 3:1 -
15.

Complain less and achieve more by doing
something about the matter. Stop complaining.
Let's take a troubled young man and show him
love.

Let's try to give him something new. Yes, he
might not know who his father might be and,
yes, he does not know what it is for a real man to
put his arms around him and say, “God loves
you and so do I.” Let us stop the complaining as
a people and show love and kindness to all.

Renowned film critic
{0 deliver this year's
Anatol Rodgers
Memorial Lecture

.



DR. ANNA EVERETT

THE School of English Stud-
ies at the College of the
Bahamas will host its fifth
annual Anatol Rodgers Memo-
rial Lecture with special guest
Dr Anna Everett on Thursday,
November 4.

As a recent winner of the
prestigious UCSB Plous
Award, Dr Everett is excep-
tionally experienced in the
fields of film and TV history,
African-American film and cul-
ture, and digital media tech-
nologies. She is the author of
Returning the Gaze: A Geneal-
ogy of Black Film Criticism,
1909-1949 and Digital Diaspora:
A Race for Cyberspace. She is
the founder and managing edi-
tor of the Internet newsletter,
Screening Noir Online.

Dr Everett has written
numerous articles including
“The Revolution Will Be Digi-
tised: Afrocentricity and the
Digital Public Sphere” and
“The Black Press in the Age of
Digital Reproduction.”

Her presentation at this
year’s Anatol Rodgers Memo-
rial Lecture, “Have We
Become Postracial Yet?:
Trends in Race, Media and
Identity Politics in the Age of
Obama” is expected to attract
film and media enthusiasts, stu-
dents and academics from the
College and the wider commu-
nity. Organizer for this year’s
event, Dr Toni Francis, Assis-
tant Professor in the School of
English Studies, said Dr Anna
Everett is one of the leading
historians of black film criti-
cism.

“Her breadth of knowledge
on race and film criticism
makes her an excellent choice
for a lecture here at the Col-
lege of the Bahamas, where we
offer courses in race and film,
film criticism and film history.

Dr Everett's current research
on race representation in video
games and her work on the
media coverage of the Barack
Obama presidential race are
also topics that would be of
great interest not only to our
students but also to the general
public,” said Dr Francis.

Dr Marjorie Brooks-Jones,
chair of the School of English
Studies, commented that this
year’s choice of speaker is most
appropriate given the media’s
interest in, and representations
of, President Obama.

Dr Brooks-Jones added that
Dr Everett’s visit to the college
is timely as earlier this year, the
college hosted the Sidney Poiti-
er International Conference
and Film Festival, a hugely suc-
cessful event.

The school has also recently
added a minor in drama and
film studies.

She said: “The study of film
continues to attract students in
the humanities and the School
of English Studies prides itself
on keeping up to date with
developments 1n the academy.
For us, it makes a great deal of
sense for the speaker to be a
film scholar.”

The Anatol Rodgers Memo-
rial Lecture will be held at the
College of the Bahamas Per-
forming Arts Centre, Oakes
Field on Thursday November
4 at 7 pm. Immediately follow-
ing the event, Dr Everett will
hold a book signing. The public
is invited to attend this free
event.

The lecture series is named in
honour of the late Anatol
Rodgers who contributed to the
development of education in
the Bahamas from 1933-1975,
and who was the third Bahami-
an and first female principal of
the Government High School
(1971-1975). Although she
taught a variety of subjects dur-
ing her professional life, Mrs
Rodgers’ first love was English.

The School of English Stud-
ies has featured well-known
scholars and writers in this
annual lecture, including Hait-
ian-American scholar and
author, Joanne Hyppolite
(2005); Guyanese poet, novelist,
playwright and professor, Fred
D’ Aguiar (2006); Professor of
English and Director of the
Institute of Caribbean Studies
at UWI, Mona, Carolyn Coop-
er (2007); Ghanaian writer, uni-
versity professor and 2009
Emmy award winner for his
multi-media project Hope: Liv-
ing and Loving with HIV in
Jamaica, Kwame Dawes (2008);
and world-renowned poet, play-
wright, author and Nobel Lau-
reate Derek Walcott (2009).



HEARING: BAILLOU HILL ROAD/MARKET STREET ROAD WORKS

Lawyers debate timing of
judicial review application

A HEARING over a judicial review
application brought on behalf of busi-
ness owners affected by road works on
the Baillou Hill Road and Market
Street corridors continued as lawyers
made submissions on whether or not
the application had been brought too
late.

Attorney General John Delaney,
who is representing Public Works and
Transport Minister Neko Grant in the
action, claimed the applicants had wait-
ed more than 10 years in bringing the
application and had not asked for an
extension of time.

Mr Delaney argued that this ought to
impact their ability to gain relief from
the court. He contended that the min-
ister had acted lawfully and with pro-

PM PRESENTS JUNKANOO
PIECES TO CHINA MUSEUM

CEREMONY: Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham preparing to
cut the ceremonial ribbon mark-
ing the official opening of The
Bahamas Maritime Authority
(BMA) Office in Hong Kong, Chi-
na on Monday.

PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham has presented five
Junkanoo pieces to the China
National Museum of Fine Arts
to be added to their collection.

Speaking at the presenta-
tion, Mr Ingraham explained
to the Chinese people the sig-
nificance of Junkanoo in
Bahamian culture.

“Art so often tells the story
of a people as your fine exhibits
show. For us in the Bahamas,
Junkanoo — a music parade and
costume extravaganza — is an
important facet of our social
culture. Inherited from our
African forefathers, Junkanoo
is an integral part of our cul-
tural imagination. Today it is
one of the more popular and
dynamic expressions of
Bahamian cultural heritage,”
he said.

“This festival of freedom is
inextricably tied in the minds
of Bahamians with Boxing Day
and New Year’s celebrations.
Yet, its brilliance is not bound
by any season, class or creed
and it has become the music we
use to mark significant national
milestones. And so it is my
great pleasure to present to you
this evening, five beautiful
Junkanoo pieces to be added
to your impressive art collec-
tion.”

The five pieces selected for
the China National Museum of
Fine Arts were hand-crafted by
skilled and talented artists in
the Bahamas, Mr Ingraham
said. “They are beautifully dec-
orated with vibrant colour using
crepe paper, paint, glitter, beads
and other ornaments. They
represent some of what one
might see paraded by our
Bahamian junkanooers, during
our Boxing Day and New
‘Year’s Day.”

The prime minister said these
pieces depict the mystical won-
ders, rich culture and heritage
of the Bahamas.

“They are also a part of the
success story of the Shanghai
Expo 2010, marking the
Bahamas’ participation in the
Expo and they are a tribute to
the spirit of friendship and
cooperation already established
between our two countries,” he
said. Prime Minister Ingraham
is visiting the country at the
invitation of the Chinese gov-
ernment to discuss issues with
several local companies and the
government of the People's
Republic of China.

respondents had not raised any objec-
tion to the application being brought
out of time during the initial stages of
the matter. He noted that during the
hearing for an injunction as well as a
Court of Appeal hearing stemming
from that issue, no mention had been
made of any delay.

According to Mr Glinton, there had
never been any complaints about the
road reversal itself, but rather the nui-
sance it caused to his clients.

Justice Neville Adderley will now
make a ruling in the matter. It is
unclear when that decision could be
handed down.

The March 30 road changes, which
made Baillou Hill Road one-way
northbound and Market Street one-
way southbound, are a part of the gov-
ernment's $120 million New Provi-
dence Road Improvement Project
(NPRIP).

THE TRIBUNE

By NATARIO McKENZIE
Tribune Staff Reporter
nmckenzie@tribunemedia.net

A 27-year-old man was
arraigned in a Magistrate’s
Court yesterday on a long
list of weapons and ammu-
nitions charges.

Police have charged Jamal
Gaitor of Prince Charles
Drive with seven counts of
possession of an unlicensed
firearm.

According to court dock-
ets, it is alleged that on
October 21 Gaitor was
found in possession of a
Austria Glock .45 pistol, a
9mm Taurus Pistol, three 38
Taurus revolvers, a HI Point
.380 Pistol as well as a High
Standard .22 revolver.

Possession

Gaitor was also allegedly
found in possession of 20
live rounds of .45 ammuni-
tion, 302 live rounds of .380
ammunition, 202 live rounds
of 9mm ammunition, 50 live
rounds of .25 ammunition
and 20 live rounds of .22
ammunition.

The accused, who was
arraigned before Chief Mag-
istrate Roger Gomez in
Court One, Bank Lane,
pleaded not guilty to the
charges.

The prosecution objected
to his being granted bail on
the grounds that investiga-
tions were ongoing. They
said that if released, Gaitor
might interfere with the
inquiry.

His attorney Cheryl
Bazard argued that Gaitor
had turned himself in to
police after his picture had
appeared on television.

She told the court that he
had been in police custody
since Wednesday, had no
previous convictions and

was not a flight risk. She fur-
ther told the court that the
weapons and ammunition
were not found on her
client, in his home or in his
vehicle.

THE Bahamas was hon-
oured in China as recipient
of the “World’s Best Eco
Island” Award by Voyage
magazine during a special
gala celebration in Beijing.
The annual award cele-
bration organised by the top
China travel media brought
together more than 300 pro-
fessionals from the travel
industry, top journalists and
a number of celebrities to
celebrate tourism in China’s
capital.

The Bahamas was one of
only 15 overseas travel des-
tinations to receive an award
and the only one in the
Caribbean/Latin American
region.

“We are pleased to
receive this recognition, and
it is both an honour and a
testimony that our work in
China is recognised,” said
Tommy Thompson, deputy
director general of tourism.
“Although we are a long
way from China, we are
learning that the Chinese
are very impressed with our
country when they have a
chance to see it.

“We continue to welcome
them.”

Bahamas gets eco-award from
leading China travel magazine

HONOURED: Bahamas received an eco-award from Voyage magazine.

“The Bahamas

expectations as a
good destination.
Key assets are the

for Voyage, Ms Daya, who
visited New Providence,
Harbour Island and Grand
Bahama during a reporting
trip in 2009, and was taken
by the incredible colours of
the country.

Lawyer accused of wittholding
more than $20,000 from client

FROM page one

of RG Brown and Co in Hooper’s Bay,
Exuma, has until Monday to respond
to a Supreme Court writ of summons in
which she is accused of failing to pay
her client Laven Delwood Hall after
taking money for his property.

Mr Hall claims he hired Ms Brown
to act on his behalf in the sale of two
lots in Bahama Sound, Exuma, to
Lawrence and Natasha Jones in April
2008.

And after the sale was agreed at
$27,000, attorneys acting on behalf of
the purchasers gave Ms Brown a
cheque to close the sale.

After deductions for the deposit,
stamp duty, recording fees and real
property taxes, $21,632.30 was due to
be given to Mr Hall and he was givena

cheque for this amount on August 20,
2008. However, Mr Hall claims he has
yet to see a penny of the proceeds.

According to the Supreme Court
writ issued by Peter Maynard, Counsel
and Attorneys, on October 15, Ms
Brown advised Mr Hall at the Busi-
ness Licence Office in Nassau on
August 21, 2008, that he would receive
payment in one weck’s time, after the
cheque had cleared.

Close

When the payment did not materi-
alise seven days later, Ms Brown told
her client she, “had to close out her
account and could not give him the
proceeds yet.”

The writ states: “A further week

ting the proceeds. “The plaintiff (Mr
Hall) made another oral request to the
defendant (Ms Brown) for the pro-
ceeds, and continued doing so on a
weekly basis for about three or four
months.

“Despite the several requests by the
plaintiff, the defendant, in breach of
the said contract, has failed to remit
the said proceeds to the plaintiff as
requested or at all, and continues to
wrongfully retain the same.”

Mr Hall claims special damages of
$21,632.30 as well as damages, interest,
costs and further relief as the court
deems fit.

He said the court action follows crim-
inal charges he filed with police in
March this year.

Police investigations have not led to
any criminal charges, he said.

Tropical Storm Shary
approaches Bermuda

ELIZABETH ROBERTS,
Associated Press

HAMILTON, Bermuda

Bermuda canceled ferry
services and urged islanders
to secure their boats as Trop-
ical Storm Shary swirled
toward the tiny British
Atlantic territory Friday.

The storm had sustained
winds of 70 mph (110 kph)
and could gain strength
before passing near or just
east of the island by early Sat-
urday morning, according to
the U.S. National Hurricane
Center in Miami.

The darkening skies did not
dampen the spirits of tourists
like Bill and Margaret Breen,
a married couple from
Boston, who carried rain jack-
ets as they strolled through
Hamilton.

"We're flying home tomor-

row afternoon, so the only
issue could be the storm
affecting the flight. But there
would be a lot worse things
than to stay another day,”
said Bill Breen, 45.

Friday afternoon, Shary's
core was about 80 miles (130
kilometers) south-southeast
of Bermuda, according to the
hurricane center. It was mov-
ing northeast at 16 mph (26
kph).

Boats

Derrick Binns, the perma-
nent secretary of the Home
Affairs Ministry, called on
islanders to tie up their boats
and secure any outdoor fur-
niture that could blow away in
the wind. He also urged
cyclists and motorists to be
careful on the roads. Shary is

Tomas generated 40mph winds with higher gusts.

The centre of the 19th named storm of the season was
located near latitude 11.1 north and longitude 57.5 west

at 5pm last night.

Rain

Tomas is expected to produce three to five inches of
rainfall, with possible isolated amounts of eight inches in
portions of the Windward and Southern Leeward Islands.

A risk of localised flooding is also presented by storm
surge accompanied by large and potentially destructive

The storm was expected to strengthen during the next
48 hours and forecasters warned it could become a hur-

ricane by tomorrow.

the 19th named storm of the
Atlantic hurricane season.

In late September, Hurri-
cane Igor knocked out power
to half of Bermuda when it
passed nearby as a Category 1
hurricane. It did not cause any
major damage or injuries,
however. Also Friday, Tropi-
cal Storm Tomas formed in
the Atlantic, and forecasters
said it could become a hurri-
cane after passing over the
Windward Islands on Satur-
day.

ATTACKING THE LANES: Students from Garvin Tynes Primary § School have a ball bowling at Mario’s Bowling Lanes on Friday.

BABYING {HE BALL

Gavin Tynes Primary School students taught to bowl at Mario’s Bowling Lanes

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

THEY could have easily
been playing basketball or
running an exercise at school.
Instead, coach Katrinka Mar-
shall decided to take her phys-
ical education classes to Mar-
io’s Bowling Lanes.

Yes, the grade 1-3 students
of Garvin Tynes Primary
School have been spending at
least one hour each day for
the past six weeks at the new
family entertainment center
on the Tonique Darling High-
way where they have been
taught how to bowl.

Katrinka Marshall, a physi-
cal education teacher at
Garvin Tynes, said she wanted
to expose her students as ear-
ly as possible to the game, so
that they can develop their
skills.

“The more practice and the
more exposure that they get,
the better they will get,” said

Marshall, noting that her prin-
cipal Mariska Hart is sup-
porting her 100 percent in the
programme.

The programme, which
average between 15-25 stu-
dents in the two classes each
day, got started in September
and Marshall said she intend
to make it a yearly event
because of the tremendous
response that she’s gotten
from both the school and the
parents.

Odette Carey, the market-
ing manager at Mario’s Bowl-
ing Lanes, said it was a plea-
sure for them to entertain the
youngsters.

“For the past six weeks,
they have been here bowling,”
Carey said. “They come here
every day and they have fun
and they enjoy bowling., So
we try to make it as fun and
exciting for them as possible.”

While there have been oth-
er schools who have popped
in from time to time to take in
a session or two, Carey said

Garvin Tynes is the first that
have actually included it into
their curriculum.

But she noted that because
of their initial participation,
Mario’s Bowling Lanes will
become a household name for
many more schools in the
future.

“A lot of schools come here
as a field trip, but not too
many of them have incorpo-
rated it into their physical edu-
cation programme,” Carey
pointed out. “So this is the
first school that we have had
that has taken it seriously.

“T encourage all schools to
take part. Bowling is a sport
that is recognized all around
the world. People win schol-
arships to bowl, so it’s a sport
that should be taken seriously,
especially here at Mario’s
Bowling.”

Most of the students that
The Tribune got to watch in
action were quite thrilled to
be wearing their bowling
shoes and actually lifting and





. =

rolling the balls, which in
some cases, were heavier than
some of them.

“A lot of them have been
learning how to hold the ball
and they are having a lot of
fun doing it,” Marshall
stressed. “I’ve designed a quiz
for them and they have been
going through with it, follow-
ing up on what they have been
taught in the games here at
the lanes.

“We've had students who
have finished their games and
have gotten extra frames, so
they are doing extremely
well,” said Marshall, who has
seen the best score posted of
126 from Mark Maycock.

Although she’s seen a low
score of about 25, Marshall
said they have not been mak-
ing an issue about it because
at the end of the day, she just
want to ensure that all of the
students fully develop their
game.

Arthurnell Higgs of Mario’s
Bowling Lanes said the stu-

Tim Clarke/Tribune staff



dents have been very recep-
tive.

“They were very excited,
energetic and love to bowl,”
Higgs stated. “I didn’t have
any problems with them.
Some had some gutter balls,
but a lot of them bowled quite
well. It was fun working with
them.”

Javan Johnson, a five-year-
old grade two student said he
had a “lot of fun. I learn how
to bowl.”

Aleeyah Neymour, a six-
year-old grade two student
said she “enjoy rolling the
ball. I like to bowl.”

Next term, Marshall said
she intend to take her stu-
dents on the Bahamas Golf
Federation’s driving range
where they are expected to
be given some valuable point-
ers on how to lay the game of
golf.

“We want to develop full
rounded students here at
Garvin Tynes,” Marshall
declared.

30 countries expected to participate in Nike Junior Tour

THE Nike Junior Tour
(NJT) International Masters
has become more than just a
tennis tournament. It has
become an experience. This
year all the under-12 and
under-14 boys and girls who
qualify will have a totally new
experience.

This year the tournament
will be bigger than ever before
with 30 countries expected to
vie for top honours. With the
dates now December 8 to 15
the Masters will be played lat-
er than usual. The reason for
this is that it will fall in the
week separating the Eddie
Herr and Orange Bowl tour-
naments.

But one thing that will not
change is the beauty and

charm of the venue.

For the fifth time in its 14-
year history, the NJT Interna-
tional Masters will be hosted at
a Club Med venue and this
year it will be staged at Club
Med Columbus Isle on the
Island of San Salvador in The
Bahamas.

All the players will be able
to experience a piece of histo-
ty because it was on these very
beaches that Christopher
Columbus landed on the ship
called the Santa Maria, on his
journey to discover America
in the year 1492.

For the past two years the
tournament has been played
on hard courts but this year it
will revert to clay.

The 30 countries expected

to line up are France, Italy,
Croatia, Spain, Czech Repub-
lic, Germany, Switzerland,
Holland, Hungary, Slovakia,
Belgium, Israel, United King-
dom, Russia, Serbia, UAE,
Belarus, Morocco, China,
Brazil, USA, Mexico, Argenti-
na, Chile, South Africa,
Bosnia, Sweden, Slovenia,
Ukraine and Turkey.

The Nike Junior Tour has
now been a breeding ground
for young tennis players since
1997 when the concept was
introduced by Chris Ver-
meeren and the first event
played at Hilversum in Hol-
land. Since then the NJT Inter-
national Masters has travelled
all over the world and has
been hosted in Germany,

TO DISCUSS STORIES

Spain, South Africa, the
Bahamas, France, Italy, the
USA and the Dominican
Republic.

Already players such as cur-
rent world No 1 Rafael Nadal,
Sweden's Robin Soderling,
Juan Martin del Potro from
Argentina, Czech Thomas
Berdych, Israel's Shahar Peer,
and Czech Lucie Safarova
have all cut their tennis teeth
at the Nike Junior Tour. All
are household names and it
should not be long before oth-
ers, such as Carlos Boluda
(Spain), Tiago Fernandes
(Brazil), An-Sophie Mestach
(Belgium) and Ajla Toml-
janovic (Croatia) jom that list.
“Nadal-Berdych, Nadal-Soder-
ling, the last two Men's Grand

Slam's finals opposed Nike
Junior Tour players," said
Nike Junior Tour Project
Leader, Philippe Weiss.
"What a big achievement
for our tournament which has
become the biggest and the
most prestigious tournament
for the U12 and U14 cate-
gories. But more than a ten-
nis tournament, the NJT is
about fun, excitement, human
experience, sharing outstand-
ing moments together and no
doubt this year again in
Bahamas, at Club Med
Columbus Isle, we will have
an unforgettable edition."
Continued Weiss: "We are
looking forward to hosting
children from all over the
world. See youin December."

eae melas

put in place
by NPABO



THE international governing
body for basketball made new rule
changes effective earlier this month
and the New Providence Associa-
tion of Basketball Officials
(NPABO) ensured its members
would be kept abreast of these
changes.

In what has been dubbed one of
the finest gatherings of basketball
officials in the history of basket-
ball in the Bahamas, the brought to
a close its two day session on
FIBA’s 2010 - ‘New Rules & Rule
Changes Clinics.’

The evening’s rules coverage was
highlighted by the very intense pre-
sentation of National Instructor -
Freddie Brown and the support-
ive input of former President of
the New Providence Basketball
Association (NPBA) and past boss
of NPABO - Kendal Taylor. This
came in the backdrop of light
hearted debate and discussion on
the impact on how the various rules
changes would be pertinent to the
sustenance of good basketball on
the

Island of New Providence, and
indeed, the Commonwealth of the
Bahamas. Someone quipped that
‘this is as high powered as one
could get in basketball officiating in
our little country’.

Rich dialogue was led by the
Association’s - Chief Climician:
Norman ‘Mouch’ Humes. Joming
in on the exchange of ideas was:

FIBA - Internationally Certified
Referee - Terez Conliffe, Gregory
‘Pepper’ Clarke, Geno Nairn,
Devon ‘Dee’ Johnson and new ref-
eree candidate Elvis Pierre. Coach
Harcourt McCoy of the Doris
Johnson Mystic Marlins attended.
Mr. McCoy, who doubles as Senior
Master at Doris, remarked that he
thought that it was essential that
as the Coordinator of the upcom-
ing annual pre-season

2010 Mystic Marlins Senior Boys
Basketball Tournament that he
was provided the opportunity to
fully grasp the ‘New Rules & Rule
Changes’.

In closing, NPABO’ President —
Tony Williams noted that he was
elated that in his vision outlined in
“The Philosophy of The
Approach” in the opening session
had come to fruition. He pointed
out that he was excited that a cross
section of the refereeing fraternity
saw fit to attend the clinics. He
mentioned the young members -
‘Dee’ Johnson and Elvis Pierre and
pointed to the veterans - Geno
Nairn and ‘Pepper Clarke. Mr.
Williams provided a special wel-
come to Ms. Terez Conliff for hav-
ing the fortitude to come forward
as the single woman in organized
basketball officiating. On behalf of
the Association, he offered grati-
tude to the Senior Master — Doris
Johnson Senior High School, the
Administration and Staff for hav-
ing the facilities available to host
the sessions. He indicated his
appreciation to Chief Clinician
‘Mouch’ Humes for his evolvement
in the process. The President
thanked Mr. Kendal Taylor for
travelling all the way from South
Andros to lend a hand, noting that
he still had a passion for the devel-
opment for basketball officiating.
He conveyed gratitude to the
National Instructor for the fine
contribution that he made; express-
ing that he hoped that Mr. Brown,
the Bahamas Basketball Federa-
tion (BBF) and the New Provi-
dence Association of Basketball
Officials could join hands in future
undertaking of this nature. Finally,
he promised that this was only the
beginning of plans to fully educate
and enriched the community in the
tules of basketball and proper offi-
ciating.

Events on the night were direct-
ed by recent inductee into the
Bahamas’ Sports Hall of Fame,
Sharon “The General’ Storr - Sec-
retary of the NPABO.

Temple Christian hosts first Primary
Schools Invitational Basketball Tournament

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

FOR the first time, Temple
Christian Suns will provide an
avenue to display their prowess
against its arch rivals in their first
Primary Schools Invitational Bas-
ketball Tournament.

Beginning on Monday with the
girls division and continuing on
Tuesday with the boys, the
Bahamas Gold Trading sponsored
tournament will run throughout
the week at the Temple Christian
School’s Gymnasium with both the
private and government schools
participating.

“The sole purpose is to get more
inactive with both the private and
government schools,” said Keno
Demeritte, who has coached the
Suns to a winning record over the
past decade, not just in track and
field, but also basketball.

“We really don’t have that many
games to play, except for tourna-
ments, so we decided to put in one
of our own so that we can get more
games for the kids here at Temple
Christian.”

So far, Demeritte said they have
already had eight girls teams signed
up and they will play out of two
pools, while there are 13 boys will
be matched up in three different

ools.

“Tt should be a real stiff competi-
tion, especially in the boys,”
Demeritte said. “I’m a little biased,
so I would say that I really don’t
expect that much competition in
the girls.

“In the last 7-8 years, our girls
have only lost about three games so
T really don’t think that we will have
that much competition in the girls.
I think it will be a challenge for any
team that wants to participate in
the tournament.”

Brandino Brown, manager of
sponsors Bahamas Gold Trading
said they decided to come on board
because of Temple Christian’s prox-
imity in the community where their

day at Temple Christian.

business is located.

Plus, he noted that “they have
an excellent basketball programme
under coach Demeritte for some
years. So I decided to help him out
with this programme that he is
doing for the kids.”

Brown, who attended the press
conference with his wife, Shonell,
said their company located on
Rosetta Street intend to offer cash
incentive prizes for the winning
schools and they will also be donat-
ing all of the trophies and medals to
the various recipients.

“We just want to help coach
Demeritte to get the school name
out there,” Brown said. “This is an
excellent programme. They have
been winning in Freeport, Grand

Bahama, but this is the first time
that they will get to showcase their
talent in their own tournament.

“So it’s time for the Nassavians to
really know about the Temple Suns.
They will get a chance to see this
school that we are so proud to be
affiliated with, perform right here at
home.”

Teams will be vying for trophies
for first and second places in both
the boys and girls, while individual
medals will be presented to the first
through third place finishers. There
will be also the most outstanding
make and female awards presented
to the deserving players.

The tournament kicks off at 3:30
pin. on Monday at Temple Christ-
jan Academy.



“In the last 7-8 years,
our girls have only lost
about three games so
T really don’t think
that we will have that
much competition in
the girls. I think it
will be a challenge for
any team that wants
to participate in the
tournament.”

Johnson suffered another loss for
Proper Care Pool.

Unlike the previous three games
of the series, both teams saved
their best offensive attacks for the
grand finale as they entertained
the fans in the longest game played
all season long.

Christine Edmunds had a per-
fect 4-for-4 night with a triple, dri-
ving in two runs and scoring three
times to pace the way for the Wild-
cats. Donette Edwards was 2-for4

Call for improvement to

FROM page one

days of being brought into the pound will be
euthanised on Fridays.

However, members of BAARK, Proud
Paws, ARK, and AFAR, are concerned they
are not given adequate care before they are
killed.

They want kennels at the pound to be
cleaned and sterilised twice a day, for ani-
mals to be given adequate food and water
and for them to receive proper veterinary
care when kept at the facility.

They also want to ensure animals are
sedated before they are killed.

Adoption

All adoptable dogs should be transferred
tothe Bahamas Humane Society next door,
where they can receive proper health checks
and treatment prior to adoption, the activists
said.

And accurate records should be kept to
show how many stray dogs and cats are col-
lected from the streets each week, how many
are turned in by their owners, and full finan-
cial records as well as a logbook of staff
activities.

“At present, Minister, as we have indi-
cated to you in our many reports and con-
versations, all of the above points at pre-
sent are not being done,” the letter states.

“These dogs have daily needs to survive.

“The fact that most of these animals will
be euthanized does not give anyone the
right to mistreat them until they are put to
sleep.

“Denying them food and water or medical
treatment to ease their suffering is cruel-
ty! ”

When trick-or-treating,
children should only go to

Hundreds of children

exciting and reflects the fact that children learn faster when school is fun.

Principal Lawrona Strachan said the programme seeks to instil a sense of responsibility in
youngsters, and a love of learning that emphasises creativity.

This year, the school introduced a special reading programme called “Your Baby Can

Throwing eggs and flour can escalate into the pelting of rocks at people and vehicles, and masked costumes can be used by criminals to gain access to homes or attack residents, Police Sergeant Anthony Rolle warned in a press conference at the Crime Prevention Office yesterday. Halloween can be a fun time for kids, but its also a time for us to be very vigilant, said Sgt Rolle. Throwing eggs, we have found, has sometimes escalated to throwing rocks, with people trying to damage someones car or cause them injury. If someone in the neighourhood has a beef with someone, they will sneak up in the dark and hurt them in the name of Halloween. We want everybody to have fun, but we want people to respect the rights of others.

Speaking with the officer in charge of the Central Police station, Chief Superintendent Emerick Seymour, the police e xpect to bring charges against at least one man and a woman early next week. In addition to prosecution, Chief Superintendent Sey mour said the Jamaican women may face investigation by the Immigration Department on the legitimacy of their presence in the country. We have been doing our intelligence, and in addition, we have been getting some complaints of unscrupulous behaviour being perpetrated by individuals at certain estab lishments. So we have in recent days arrested at least six individu als; two Bahamians and four foreign nationals and we are conducting our investigations into the behaviour of these i ndividuals. I can also tell you that we expect to charge at least two of them, he said. C hief Superintendent Seymour said police will continue t o have a presence in the area t o discourage further illegal activity. On Monday evening, The Tribune conducted its own investigations into the con tinuing activities at the for mer Mayfair hotel. A fter reportedly being shut down nearly two years ago after a Tribune investigation in 2008, it appeared that operations at the reported brothel were up and running. From a secure location, eye witnesses observed one of the handlers for the women, who are said to be housed in the complex, approach three American male tourists and offer them the girls services. In plain sight of the Fort Charlotte Police Station, the man asked the group if they were interested in purchasing any women for the night. Avoiding his remarks, the men continued down the street, despite being followed and assured by the handler that whatever they were seek ing he could supply.

F RIENDS of the Environment has partnered with Dr Craig Layman and his research team from Florida International University to restore a vital tidal creek and wetland area in Abaco. Broad Creek, located just south of Marsh Harbour near Camp Abaco has been blocked for more than 30 years after a road was constructed to build the camp. The restoration project entailed removing a small area of the road, installing culverts to allow water flow under the traffic, and then reforming the road. The team then had to selectively remove mangroves that had encroached into the channel after road construction had taken place. Kristin Williams, executive director Friends of the Environment, said: Tidal creeks and mangrove wetlands are among the most important habitats in the Bahamas because of the important role they play as nurseries for juve nile and adult fishes and invertebrates. For example, these areas provide a safe home for juvenile Nassau Grouper and crawfish before these individuals move to deeper waters as adults. Unfortunately, human impacts are responsible for significant wetland degradation across the country, including direct removal, dredging and pollution. But perhaps the most com mon problem in the Bahamas is fragmentation the result of some obstruction, typically a road, that blocks the flow of water from the ocean into the wetland. Without this flow of water, sediment builds up and the water becomes extremely hot, salty, and depleted of oxygen, creating a harsh place for animals to live. Fragmentation results in drastic changes to the environ ment and the loss of critical fish nurseries. Within the first 24 hours of the culvert installation, sever al snappers and barracuda had already begun to use the previously blocked area. Dr Layman said: Within just a couple of years, the successful restoration could lead to significantly increased production of snapper, including marked increases of adult snapper on nearby reefs. In addition to the scientific and conservation components of the restoration, Friends of the Environment used the project as an educational outreach initiative for students and local community members. FRIENDS co-ordinated pre sentations in the local schools and conducted field trips so that the students could actually par ticipate in the restoration. A total of 510 students and adults assisted in reclaiming around 28 acres of wetlands that had been fragmented by the road. Additionally, around an area of the same size on the down stream side of the road was restored to its original state by selectively removing mangroves. Mrs Williams said: This creek restoration is such a positive project that allows the community to improve their environment without losing anything in the process. Those who participated in the restora tion will have a sense of pride knowing the long term ecological benefits of their efforts. The volunteers were aided in their efforts by the Ministry of Works, Big Cat, Adele and Timmy McDonald, The Nature Conservancy, Schooner Bay, and Serenity Point.

EDITOR, The Tribune. It would be appreciated if you would please allow some space in your editorial column for this letter. I have read the comments in the newspapers, listened to the radio and watched television in regard to the anarchic behaviour of the staff of ZNS. The comments of Fred Mitchell and Philip Brave Davis were very disappointing because they sat in the same place in government, and, in respect to Philip Brave Davis, he has been in the seat for 20 years. During their terms, they were aware of the problem which successive governments faced in trying to meet the payroll for an over-staffed Civil Service for many years. It is noted that successive governments have had to make regular borrowings from the IMF for salaries for the Civil Service and to support the quasi-governmental entities, of which ZNS is only one. In spite of this knowledge, we have senior PLP politicians seeking to mislead the public with their political rhetoric and deceitful statements to encourage this anarchy. ZNS staffers, you are and have been aware of the impending downsizing. You were also aware that you were represented at the table by your union representatives. When you took your action against this nation, you showed your selves incapable of abiding by the rule of law which every country must uphold. Threats against the Head of State of any country is tantamount to a treasonous act. But in The Bahamas., some of us believe that we should be able to do what we want, say what we want, against whom we want, with impunity. If you know that we are in a recession, and that you are not creating sufficient income from your company to keep you solvent and meet your financial obligations, what are you doing going up against the state when you are aware of these facts? I say shame on all of you at ZNS for disrupting this nations television and radio lines. Dot hings in decency and order and in accordance with the rule of law.

The two countries, with a long history of mutual antagonism, are at odds over many big issues: from currency and trade policy to the U.S. naval dominance of the Asia-Pacific region, from U.S. arms sales to Taiwanto China's human rights record and its territorial disputes in the South China Sea. But the Obama administration says it has not given up on building stronger bonds with Beijing, one of the world's fastest growing economic and military powers. In a speech in Honolulu Thursday, Clin ton talked tough, lumping China with North Korea and Myanmar as sources of concern about "deep-seated challenges" facing the Asia-Pacific region. She also urged Beijing to become the United States' partner in tackling a number of regional and global challenges. Despite the stormy U.S.-China relationship, Drew Thompson, director of China studies at the Nixon Centre in Washington, sees the administration taking a stay-thecourse approach overall. "It's only the Chinese who are down" about the rocky side of the relationship, Thompson said in an interview Thursday. Kurt Campbell, the State Department's top Asia policy official, said it is vital for the U.S. to maintain "cool-headed" diplomacy with China. "We all understand the stakes involved and the importance for a positive, construc tive and, frankly, a relationship with a degree of confidence between the United States and China going forward," he said Tuesday in describing Clinton's China visit. Clinton was in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Fri day. She planned to meet with the Chinese foreign minister there on Saturday before making a brief visit to China's Hainan Island with her Chinese counterpart, State Councilor Dai Bingguo. Their talks are intendedto raise some of the issues dividing the two countries and pave the way for President Hu Jintao's visit to Washington early next year. Beijing's growing economic might and more assertive role on the world stage make its support crucial to many of President Barack Obama's priorities including halt ing the global spread of nuclear arms. China is seen as the key to persuading North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons programme. China's dependence on Iranian oil for its rapidly industrializing economy makes it crucial to the success of U.N. sanctions aimed at forcing Iran to negotiate over its nuclear programme. "We're seeking the mantra of a positive, cooperative, constructive relationship," Jeff Bader of the National Security Council said Thursday. He noted that Obama has met seven times with Hu and three times with Premier Wen Jiabao. "I guarantee you that's unprecedented in modern history," Bader said. But the U.S. has also felt compelled to reassure Asian nations that the U.S. is not ceding its major role in the Asia-Pacific region, bolstering ties to longtime allies Japan and South Korea. In an unmistakable reference to China, Clinton said Thursday that "military buildups matched with ongoing territorial disputes create anxieties that reverberate." The disputes are a prominent part of the backdrop to Clinton's stop on Hainan, a tropical island east of Vietnam in the South China Sea. A U.S. Navy spy plane was forced to land there in April 2001 after it col lided with a Chinese fighter jet. The 24 U.S. crew members were held for 11 days until the Bush administration apologized for the collision that killed a Chinese pilot. China is also sparring with its neighbours over control of the Spratly and Paracel islands, claimed by Vietnam and other nations as well as Beijing. The contested islands straddle busy sea lanes that are a crucial conduit for oil and other resources fueling China's fast-expanding economy. Clinton raised hackles in Beijing when she said in July that the United States has a national interest in the peaceful resolution of competing claims to the islands. The Pentagon has long expressed concern about the rapid modernization of China's military, particularly its focus on deploying ballistic missiles opposite Taiwan, the semi-autonomous island that Beijing considers a renegade province. Defence Secretary Robert Gates accepted an invitation to visit China and is expected to go next year. (This article was written by Robert Burns, AP National Security writer). Shame on ZNS for disrupting TV, radio lines LETTERS l etters@tribunemedia.net US seeks common ground with China E DITOR, The Tribune. And the people murmured and complained against Moses, saying What shall we drink? And he cried unto the Lord and the Lord shewed him a tree which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet. And said, If thou will diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and will give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of t hese diseases upon thee. Exodus 15: 24 27. Yes, there is a group of young men and young women in this country who do not care. Yes, there is a group of people who did a poor job of parenting. Yes, some twenty years ago, some young people were making children. What I'm saying is that, children were having children and knew nothing about parenting. Yes, we have inherited a seed planting curse that some of our f orefathers had left behind. This curse of this seed planter is still upon a group of our males and the only thing they are doing is planting seeds into a ground and they hardly know what they are producing. So what will we do is the question? Every time you turn around on the radio we hear of someone complaining about the Gov ernment. The Government should do this and theG overnment should do the next. They should build the roads; they should not build the roads. They should give them jobs; they should not give them jobs. It's time to stop complaining and start giving thanks to God. Some countries do not have roads. Thank God you have life and do something constructive with it. Anytime the complaining murmuring spirit rises up, begin to pray and praise God and give Him thanks. O give thanks unto the Lord for He is good and His mercy endureth forever. Just ask yourself this question: If my parents had complained where would I be? If God would complain every time we did something sinful what would happen to us? Bahamas, stop complaining. There are some peo ple who have never been on an airplane and they live in North America. Stop complaining; there are some people who have never riden in a car. There are some people in this world who have n ever sat on a toilet bowl that can flush, stop complaining. There are some people who have n ever seen a pump to pump water. As a matter of fact some people still draw water from wells. Stop complaining, Bahamas. God don't like it. I call upon every man, woman, boy and girl to pick a day and don't complain but just pray and give God thanks. But the people were thirsty for water there, and they grumbled against Moses. They said, Why did you bring us up out of Egypt to make us and our children and livestock die of t hirst? Exodus 17 : 3 Moses ended up crying before the Lord, What shall I do unto the people, they are ready to stone me? But God fixed it for Moses and they called the place Massah (testing and Meribah (quarreling or complaining. Exodus 17: 3-7. Even God gets angry of complainers. Complainers get nothing done. Complainers are none achievers. Complainers are not useful. Com p lainers are always looking for a way out. Hanna was a praying woman and not a com plainer and she had so much to complain about, but she prayed instead. Ruth said: Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God. This woman could have complained, but she did not. T hat is why she met Boaz and her life was changed. My brothers and sisters, Esther could have also complained but she chose to do something about the plot to destroy the Jews. Esther 3:1 15. Complain less and achieve more by doing something about the matter. Stop complaining. Let's take a troubled young man and show him love. Let's try to give him something new. Yes, he might not know who his father might be and, yes, he does not know what it is for a real man to put his arms around him and say, God loves you and so do I. Let us stop the complaining as a people and show love and kindness to all. B. BULLARD Nassau, October 27, 2010. Complain less and achieve more

Speaking at the presenta tion, Mr Ingraham explained to the Chinese people the significance of Junkanoo in Bahamian culture. Art so often tells the story of a people as your fine exhibits show. For us in the Bahamas, Junkanoo a music parade and costume extravaganza is an important facet of our social culture. Inherited from our African forefathers, Junkanoo is an integral part of our cultural imagination. Today it is one of the more popular and dynamic expressions of Bahamian cultural heritage, he said. This festival of freedom is inextricably tied in the minds of Bahamians with Boxing Day and New Years celebrations. Yet, its brilliance is not bound by any season, class or creed and it has become the music we use to mark significant national milestones. And so it is my great pleasure to present to you this evening, five beautiful Junkanoo pieces to be added to your impressive art collec tion. The five pieces selected for the China National Museum of Fine Arts were hand-crafted by skilled and talented artists in the Bahamas, Mr Ingraham said. They are beautifully decorated with vibrant colour using crepe paper, paint, glitter, beads and other ornaments. They represent some of what one might see paraded by our Bahamian junkanooers, during our Boxing Day and New Years Day. The prime minister said these pieces depict the mystical wonders, rich culture and heritage of the Bahamas. They are also a part of the success story of the Shanghai Expo 2010, marking the Bahamas participation in the Expo and they are a tribute to the spirit of friendship and cooperation already established between our two countries, he said. Prime Minister Ingraham is visiting the country at the invitation of the Chinese gov ernment to discuss issues with several local companies and the government of the People's Republic of China.

THE School of English Studies at the College of the Bahamas will host its fifth annual Anatol Rodgers Memorial Lecture with special guest Dr Anna Everett on Thursday, November 4. As a recent winner of the prestigious UCSB Plous Award, Dr Everett is exceptionally experienced in the fields of film and TV history, African-American film and culture, and digital media technologies. She is the author of Returning the Gaze: A Geneal ogy of Black Film Criticism, 1909-1949 and Digital Diaspora: A Race for Cyberspace. She is the founder and managing editor of the Internet newsletter, Screening Noir Online. Dr Everett has written numerous articles including The Revolution Will Be Digitised: Afrocentricity and the Digital Public Sphere and The Black Press in the Age of Digital Reproduction. Her presentation at this years Anatol Rodgers Memorial Lecture, Have We Become Postracial Yet?: Trends in Race, Media and Identity Politics in the Age of Obama is expected to attract film and media enthusiasts, students and academics from the College and the wider commu nity. Organizer for this years event, Dr Toni Francis, Assistant Professor in the School of English Studies, said Dr Anna Everett is one of the leading historians of black film criticism. Her breadth of knowledge on race and film criticism m akes her an excellent choice for a lecture here at the Col lege of the Bahamas, where we offer courses in race and film, film criticism and film history. Dr Everett's current research on race representation in video games and her work on the media coverage of the BarackO bama presidential race are also topics that would be of great interest not only to our students but also to the general public, said Dr Francis. Dr Marjorie Brooks-Jones, chair of the School of English Studies, commented that this years choice of speaker is most appropriate given the medias interest in, and representations of, President Obama. Dr Brooks-Jones added that Dr Everetts visit to the college is timely as earlier this year, the college hosted the Sidney Poitier International Conference and Film Festival, a hugely successful event. The school has also recently added a minor in drama and film studies. She said: The study of film continues to attract students in the humanities and the School of English Studies prides itself on keeping up to date with developments in the academy. For us, it makes a great deal of sense for the speaker to be a film scholar. The Anatol Rodgers Memorial Lecture will be held at the College of the Bahamas Performing Arts Centre, Oakes Field on Thursday November 4 at 7 pm. Immediately follow ing the event, Dr Everett will hold a book signing. The public is invited to attend this free event. The lecture series is named in honour of the late Anatol Rodgers who contributed to the development of education in the Bahamas from 1933-1975,and who was the third Bahami an and first female principal of the Government High School (1971-1975 taught a variety of subjects dur ing her professional life, Mrs Rodgers' first love was English.

ELIZABETH ROBERTS, A ssociated Press HAMILTON, Bermuda Bermuda canceled ferry services and urged islandersto secure their boats as Tropical Storm Shary swirled toward the tiny British Atlantic territory Friday. The storm had sustained winds of 70 mph (110 kph and could gain strength before passing near or just east of the island by early Sat-u rday morning, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami. The darkening skies did not dampen the spirits of tourists like Bill and Margaret Breen,a married couple from Boston, who carried rain jackets as they strolled through H amilton. "We're flying home tomorrow afternoon, so the only i ssue could be the storm a ffecting the flight. But there would be a lot worse things than to stay another day," said Bill Breen, 45. Friday afternoon, Shary's c ore was about 80 miles (130 kilometers) south-southeast of Bermuda, according to the hurricane center. It was moving northeast at 16 mph (26 kph). B oats Derrick Binns, the perman ent secretary of the Home A ffairs Ministry, called on islanders to tie up their boats a nd secure any outdoor furn iture that could blow away in t he wind. He also urged cyclists and motorists to be careful on the roads. Shary is the 19th named storm of the Atlantic hurricane season. In late September, Hurric ane Igor knocked out power to half of Bermuda when it passed nearby as a Category 1 hurricane. It did not cause any major damage or injuries, h owever. Also Friday, Tropical Storm Tomas formed in the Atlantic, and forecasters said it could become a hurric ane after passing over the W indward Islands on Saturd ay. n SEESTORYBELOW C M Y K C M Y K LOCAL AND OVERSEAS NEWS T HE TRIBUNE SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2010, PAGE 11 TO DISCUSS STORIES ON THIS PAGE LOG ON TO WWW.TRIBUNE242.COM 52wk-Hi52wk-LowSecurit y Previous CloseToday's CloseChangeDaily Vol.EPS $Div $P/EYield 1.261.00AML Foods Limited1.011.010.002,0000.1500.0406.73.96% 1 0.759.67Bahamas Property Fund10.6310.630.000.0130.200817.71.88% 6 .184.50Bank of Bahamas4.904.900.000.5980.2608.25.31% 0.580.18Benchmark0.180.180.00-0.8770.000N/M0.00% 3.492.84Bahamas Waste2.842.840.005000.1680.09016.93.17% 2.152.14Fidelity Bank2.172.170.000.0160.040135.61.84% 12.509.62Cable Bahamas10.2410.470.2314,7901.2270.3108.52.96% 2.842.36Colina Holdings2.362.360.000.7810.0403.01.69%7 .005.40Commonwealth Bank (S1)6.596.50-0.0934,6370.4220.23015.43.54% 3 .651.63Consolidated Water BDRs1.861.890.030.1110.04517.02.38% 2.551.60Doctor's Hospital1.771.770.000.1990.1108.96.21% 6.995.94Famguard6.076.070.00-0.0030.240N/M3.95% 10.207.29Finco7.297.290.001500.2870.52025.47.13% 11.408.77FirstCaribbean Bank9.749.740.000.6450.35015.13.59% 5.513.75Focol (S)5.465.460.005400.3660.21014.93.85%1 .001.00Focol Class B Preference1.001.000.000.0000.000N/M0.00% 5.595.00ICD Utilities5.595.590.000.0120.240465.84.29% 10.509.92J.

THE Nike Junior Tour (NJT) International Masters has become more than just a tennis tournament. It has become an experience. This year all the under-12 and under-14 boys and girls who qualify will have a totally new experience. This year the tournament will be bigger than ever before with 30 countries expected to vie for top honours. With the dates now December 8 to 15 the Masters will be played later than usual. The reason for this is that it will fall in the week separating the Eddie Herr and Orange Bowl tournaments. But one thing that will not change is the beauty and charm of the venue. For the fifth time in its 14year history, the NJT International Masters will be hosted at a Club Med venue and this year it will be staged at Club Med Columbus Isle on the Island of San Salvador in The Bahamas. All the players will be able to experience a piece of history because it was on these very beaches that Christopher Columbus landed on the ship called the Santa Maria, on his journey to discover America in the year 1492. For the past two years the tournament has been played on hard courts but this year it will revert to clay.

The Nike Junior Tour has now been a breeding ground for young tennis players since 1997 when the concept was introduced by Chris Vermeeren and the first event played at Hilversum in Holland. Since then the NJT International Masters has travelled all over the world and has been hosted in Germany, Spain, South Africa, the Bahamas, France, Italy, the USA and the Dominican Republic. Already players such as current world No 1 Rafael Nadal, Sweden's Robin Soderling, Juan Martin del Potro from Argentina, Czech Thomas Berdych, Israel's Shahar Peer, and Czech Lucie Safarova have all cut their tennis teeth at the Nike Junior Tour. All are household names and it should not be long before others, such as Carlos Boluda (Spain), Tiago Fernandes (Brazil), An-Sophie Mestach (Belgium) and Ajla Tomljanovic (Croatia) join that list. "Nadal-Berdych, Nadal-Soderling, the last two Men's Grand Slam's finals opposed Nike Junior Tour players," said Nike Junior Tour Project Leader, Philippe Weiss. "What a big achievement for our tournament which has become the biggest and the most prestigious tournament for the U12 and U14 categories. But more than a tennis tournament, the NJT is about fun, excitement, human experience, sharing outstanding moments together and no doubt this year again in Bahamas, at Club Med Columbus Isle, we will have an unforgettable edition." Continued Weiss: "We are looking forward to hosting children from all over the world. See you in December." 30 countries expected to participate in Nike Junior Tour By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter bstubbs@tribunemedia.net THEY could have easily been playing basketball or running an exercise at school. Instead, coach Katrinka Marshall decided to take her physical education classes to Mario's Bowling Lanes. Yes, the grade 1-3 students of Garvin Tynes Primary School have been spending at least one hour each day for the past six weeks at the new family entertainment center on the Tonique Darling Highway where they have been taught how to bowl. Katrinka Marshall, a physical education teacher at Garvin Tynes, said she wanted to expose her students as early as possible to the game, so that they can develop their skills. "The more practice and the more exposure that they get, the better they will get," said Marshall, noting that her principal Mariska Hart is supporting her 100 percent in the programme. The programme, which average between 15-25 students in the two classes each day, got started in September and Marshall said she intend to make it a yearly event because of the tremendous response that she's gotten from both the school and the parents. Odette Carey, the marketing manager at Mario's Bowling Lanes, said it was a pleasure for them to entertain the youngsters. "For the past six weeks, they have been here bowling," Carey said. "They come here every day and they have fun and they enjoy bowling., So we try to make it as fun and exciting for them as possible." While there have been other schools who have popped in from time to time to take in a session or two, Carey said Garvin Tynes is the first that have actually included it into their currriculum. But she noted that because of their initial participation, Mario's Bowling Lanes will become a household name for many more schools in the future. "A lot of schools come here as a field trip, but not too many of them have incorporated it into their physical education programme," Carey pointed out. "So this is the first school that we have had that has taken it seriously. "I encourage all schools to take part. Bowling is a sport that is recognized all around the world. People win scholarships to bowl, so it's a sport that should be taken seriously, especially here at Mario's Bowling." Most of the students that The Tribune got to watch in action were quite thrilled to be wearing their bowling shoes and actually lifting and rolling the balls, which in some cases, were heavier than some of them. "A lot of them have been learning how to hold the ball and they are having a lot of fun doing it," Marshall stressed. "I've designed a quiz for them and they have been going through with it, following up on what they have been taught in the games here at the lanes. "We've had students who have finished their games and have gotten extra frames, so they are doing extremely well," said Marshall, who has seen the best score posted of 126 from Mark Maycock. Although she's seen a low score of about 25, Marshall said they have not been making an issue about it because at the end of the day, she just want to ensure that all of the students fully develop their game. Arthurnell Higgs of Mario's Bowling Lanes said the students have been very receptive. "They were very excited, energetic and love to bowl," Higgs stated. "I didn't have any problems with them. Some had some gutter balls, but a lot of them bowled quite well. It was fun working with them." Javan Johnson, a five-yearold grade two student said he had a "lot of fun. I learn how to bowl." Aleeyah Neymour, a sixyear-old grade two student said she "enjoy rolling the ball. I like to bowl." Next term, Marshall said she intend to take her students on the Bahamas Golf Federation's driving range where they are expected to be given some valuable pointers on how to lay the game of golf. "We want to develop full rounded students here at Garvin Tynes," Marshall declared.Gavin Tynes Primary School students taught to bowl at Marios Bowling LanesBABYING THE BALL Tim Clarke /Tribune staff By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter bstubbs@tribunemedia.net THE Pineapple Air Wildcats are the New Providence Softball Association ladies champions again.

C M Y K C M Y K SPORTS PAGE 14, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2010 TRIBUNE SPORTS TO DISCUSS STORIES ON THIS PAGE LOG ON TO WWW.TRIBUNE242.COM THEinternational governing body for basketball made new rule changes effective earlier this month and the New Providence Association of Basketball Officials (NPABO) ensured its members would be kept abreast of these changes. In what has been dubbed one of the finest gatherings of basketball officials in the history of basketball in the Bahamas, the brought to a close its two day session on FIBA's 2010 New Rules & Rule Changes Clinics.' The evening's rules coverage was highlighted by the very intense presentation of National Instructor Freddie Brown and the supportive input of former President of the New Providence Basketball Association (NPBA) and past boss of NPABO Kendal Taylor. This came in the backdrop of light hearted debate and discussion on the impact on how the various rules changes would be pertinent to the sustenance of good basketball on the Island of New Providence, and indeed, the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. Someone quipped that this is as high powered as one could get in basketball officiating in our little country'. Rich dialogue was led by the Association's Chief Clinician: Norman Mouch' Humes. Joining in on the exchange of ideas was: FIBA Internationally Certified Referee Terez Conliffe, Gregory Pepper' Clarke, Geno Nairn, Devon Dee' Johnson and new referee candidate Elvis Pierre. Coach Harcourt McCoy of the Doris Johnson Mystic Marlins attended. Mr. McCoy, who doubles as Senior Master at Doris, remarked that he thought that it was essential that as the Coordinator of the upcoming annual pre-season 2010 Mystic Marlins Senior Boys Basketball Tournament that he was provided the opportunity to fully grasp the New Rules & Rule Changes'. In closing, NPABO' President Tony Williams noted that he was elated that in his vision outlined in "The Philosophy of The Approach" in the opening session had come to fruition. He pointed out that he was excited that a cross section of the refereeing fraternity saw fit to attend the clinics. He mentioned the young members Dee' Johnson and Elvis Pierre and pointed to the veterans Geno Nairn and Pepper Clarke. Mr. Williams provided a special welcome to Ms. Terez Conliff for having the fortitude to come forward as the single woman in organized basketball officiating. On behalf of the Association, he offered gratitude to the Senior Master Doris Johnson Senior High School, the Administration and Staff for having the facilities available to host the sessions. He indicated his appreciation to Chief Clinician Mouch' Humes for his evolvement in the process. The President thanked Mr. Kendal Taylor for travelling all the way from South Andros to lend a hand, noting that he still had a passion for the development for basketball officiating. He conveyed gratitude to the National Instructor for the fine contribution that he made; expressing that he hoped that Mr. Brown, the Bahamas Basketball Federation (BBF) and the New Providence Association of Basketball Officials could join hands in future undertaking of this nature. Finally, he promised that this was only the beginning of plans to fully educate and enriched the community in the rules of basketball and proper officiating.

Local church hosts fun-filled event for men and boys By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter bstubbs@tribunemedia.net FOR the first time, Temple Christian Suns will provide an avenue to display their prowess against its arch rivals in their first Primary Schools Invitational Basketball Tournament. Beginning on Monday with the girls division and continuing on Tuesday with the boys, the Bahamas Gold Trading sponsored tournament will run throughout the week at the Temple Christian School's Gymnasium with both the private and government schools participating. "The sole purpose is to get more inactive with both the private and government schools," said Keno Demeritte, who has coached the Suns to a winning record over the past decade, not just in track and field, but also basketball. "We really don't have that many games to play, except for tournaments, so we decided to put in one of our own so that we can get more games for the kids here at Temple Christian." So far, Demeritte said they have already had eight girls teams signed up and they will play out of two pools, while there are 13 boys will be matched up in three different pools. "It should be a real stiff competition, especially in the boys," Demeritte said. "I'm a little biased, so I would say that I really don't expect that much competition in the girls. "In the last 7-8 years, our girls have only lost about three games so I really don't think that we will have that much competition in the girls. I think it will be a challenge for any team that wants to participate in the tournament." Brandino Brown, manager of sponsors Bahamas Gold Trading said they decided to come on board because of Temple Christian's proximity in the community where their business is located. Plus, he noted that "they have an excellent basketball programme under coach Demeritte for some years. So I decided to help him out with this programme that he is doing for the kids." Brown, who attended the press conference with his wife, Shonell, said their company located on Rosetta Street intend to offer cash incentive prizes for the winning schools and they will also be donating all of the trophies and medals to the various recipients. "We just want to help coach Demeritte to get the school name out there," Brown said. "This is an excellent programme. They have been winning in Freeport, Grand Bahama, but this is the first time that they will get to showcase their talent in their own tournament. "So it's time for the Nassavians to really know about the Temple Suns. They will get a chance to see this school that we are so proud to be affiliated with, perform right here at home." Teams will be vying for trophies for first and second places in both the boys and girls, while individual medals will be presented to the first through third place finishers. There will be also the most outstanding make and female awards presented to the deserving players. The tournament kicks off at 3:30 p.m. on Monday at Temple Christian Academy. Temple Christian hosts first Primary Schools Invitational Basketball Tournament GAME ON: Coach Keno Demeritte (center) of Temple Christian Primary School is flanked by the husband and wife team of Brandino and Shonell Brown as they announced the sponsorship of the primary school basketball tournament that kicks off on Monday at Temple Christian. Johnson suffered another loss for Proper Care Pool. Unlike the previous three games of the series, both teams saved their best offensive attacks for the grand finale as they entertained the fans in the longest game played all season long. Christine Edmunds had a perfect 4-for-4 night with a triple, driving in two runs and scoring three times to pace the way for the Wildcats. Donette Edwards was 2-for-4 with three RBI and two runs scored; Jeanette Hilton was 2-for2 with a double, driving in two mates and scoring as many times and Maryann Fowler went 2-for-3 with two triples, driving in three runs and scoring two times. For the Lady Sharks, Shonell Symonette went 3-for-4, scoring three runs; Riquel Cooper was 2for-4, scoring twice; Thela Johnson was 1-for-3 with a double, scoring three times; Trekia Munroe was 2for-4 with a double, driving in a run and scoring another and Keisha Miller was 2-for-4 with a double, driving in a run and scoring once. While Pineapple Air plated 21 runs, they produced 15 hits and committed six errors, compared to Proper Care Pool's 15 runs on 13 hits with just five errors. After getting shutout in the first inning, the Wildcats responded with their best showing as they rebounded from a 2-0 deficit to explode for 11 runs on seven hits in the second. They extended their lead with three more runs on four hits in the third; four runs on two hits in the fourth and two runs on a hit in the fifth for a commanding 18-8 margin. After coming up with three runs on two hits in both the second and fourth innings, the Lady Sharks added two runs on three hits in the fifth, two runs on four hits in the sixth and three runs on one hit in the seventh. Pineapple Air will now go on to join the Dorin United Hitmen in representing the NPSA in the championships that will feature six men's teams and three ladies' teams in the tournament that will run from Thursday to Sunday. The Hitmen, who was awarded the men's title after the defending champions Commando Security Truckers walked off the field in game one, will join the DRS Jets from Eleuthera, the Home Furniture Turtles from Abaco, the Gemini Cougars from Andros and the L Net Mariners from Grand Bahama. Commando Security, however, have petitioned the courts for an injunction against the NPSA, denying Dorin United to be declared the champions, citing that they should have been allowed to just pay a fine and continue playing, rather than being explelled from the remainder of the series. While their lawyer, Christina Galanis from Lockhart and Co., was able to file the injunction on Thursday, it was reported that a court hearing is set for Thursday, the same day that the BSF is expected to kick off the round robin series.

in brothel raid

Two Bahamian men
and four Jamaican
women detained

By PAUL G TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

POLICE have arrested two
Bahamian men and four
Jamaican women at the for-
mer Mayfair Hotel, following
Tribune reports of prostitu-
tion at the West Bay Street
establishment.

Speaking with the officer in
charge of the Central Police
station, Chief Superintendent
Emerick Seymour, the police
expect to bring charges
against at least one man and a
woman early next week.

In addition to prosecution,
Chief Superintendent Sey-
mour said the Jamaican
women may face investiga-
tion by the Immigration
Department on the legitimacy
of their presence in the coun-

“We have been doing our
intelligence, and in addition,
we have been getting some
complaints of unscrupulous
behaviour being perpetrated
by individuals at certain estab-
lishments.

“So we have in recent days
arrested at least six individu-
als; two Bahamians and four
foreign nationals and we are
conducting our investigations
into the behaviour of these

individuals. I can also tell you
that we expect to charge at
least two of them,” he said.

Chief Superintendent Sey-
mour said police will continue
to have a presence in the area
to discourage further illegal
activity.

On Monday evening, The
Tribune conducted its own
investigations into the con-
tinuing activities at the for-
mer Mayfair hotel.

After reportedly being
“shut down” nearly two years
ago after a Tribune investiga-
tion in 2008, it appeared that
operations at the reported
brothel were up and running.

From a secure location, eye
witnesses observed one of the
“handlers” for the women,
who are said to be housed in
the complex, approach three
American male tourists and
offer them the girls’ “ser-
vices”.

In plain sight of the Fort
Charlotte Police Station, the
man asked the group if they
were interested in purchasing
any women for the night.

Avoiding his remarks, the
men continued down the
street, despite being followed
and assured by the handler
that whatever they were seek-
ing he could “supply.”

unwanted dogs and cats are detained and euthanised.

Dogs and cats not claimed by their owners within four

Williams, executive director Friends of the Environment. Pictured top right:VFour culverts were installed
under the road to open up the fragmented creek system.

RIENDS of the

Environment has

partnered with Dr

Craig Layman and

his research team from Florida

International University to

restore a vital tidal creek and
wetland area in Abaco.

Broad Creek, located just

south of Marsh Harbour near

30th

Camp Abaco has been blocked
for more than 30 years after a
road was constructed to build
the camp.

The restoration project
entailed removing a small area
of the road, installing culverts to
allow water flow under the traf-
fic, and then reforming the
road. The team then had to
selectively remove mangroves
that had encroached into the
channel after road construction
had taken place.

Kristin Williams, executive
director Friends of the Envi-
ronment, said: “Tidal creeks
and mangrove wetlands are
among the most important
habitats in the Bahamas
because of the important role
they play as nurseries for juve-
nile and adult fishes and inver-
tebrates. “For example, these
areas provide a safe home for
juvenile Nassau Grouper and
crawfish before these individ-
uals move to deeper waters as
adults. “Unfortunately, human
impacts are responsible for sig-
nificant wetland degradation
across the country, including
direct removal, dredging and
pollution.

“But perhaps the most com-
mon problem in the Bahamas is
fragmentation — the result of
some obstruction, typically a
road, that blocks the flow of
water from the ocean into the
wetland. Without this flow of
water, sediment builds up and
the water becomes extremely
hot, salty, and depleted of oxy-
gen, creating a harsh place for
animals to live.

“Fragmentation results in
drastic changes to the environ-
ment and the loss of critical fish
nurseries.”

Within the first 24 hours of
the culvert installation, sever-

_



al snappers and barracuda had
already begun to use the previ-
ously blocked area.

Dr Layman said: “Within just
a couple of years, the successful
restoration could lead to sig-
nificantly increased production
of snapper, including marked
increases of adult snapper on
nearby reefs.”

In addition to the scientific
and conservation components
of the restoration, Friends of
the Environment used the pro-
ject as an educational outreach
initiative for students and local
community members.

FRIENDS co-ordinated pre-
sentations in the local schools
and conducted field trips so that
the students could actually par-
ticipate in the restoration.

A total of 510 students and
adults assisted in reclaiming
around 28 acres of wetlands
that had been fragmented by
the road.

Additionally, around an area
of the same size on the down-
stream side of the road was
restored to its original state by
selectively removing man-
groves. Mrs Williams said:
“This creek restoration is such
a positive project that allows
the community to improve their
environment without losing
anything in the process. Those
who participated in the restora-
tion will have a sense of pride
knowing the long term ecolog-
ical benefits of their efforts.”

The volunteers were aided
in their efforts by the Ministry
of Works, Big Cat, Adele and
Timmy McDonald, The Nature
Conservancy, Schooner Bay,
and Serenity Point.

The participation of FIU was
made possible through a grant
from the National Science
Foundation (NSF).

IMPRESSIVE JOB: THE Bahamas Alliance for the Blind and Visually
Impaired is closing out Sight Awareness month with a “Praise For
Sight” gospel concert. It will be held this Sunday, October 31 begin-
ning at 7.30pm. The BABVI spent the entire month teaching persons
how to protect their eyes with the help of sponsors Lowes Wholesale
and Visine Sterile Eye Drops. Pictured is Jermaine Clarke, who did an
impressive job as the DJ at BBVI’s exhibition and eye screening at the
Mall at Marathon. Although blind, he was able to control the PA sys-
tem and music — proving that blindness does not mean the end of

accomplishment and aspiration.

tomers a terrific opportunity
to learn about our products
and services and ask ques-
tions of our experts.”

US seeks common ground with China

WASHINGTON— The Obama admin-
istration faces a sea of obstacles, setbacks
and conflicts with China as Secretary of State
Hillary Rodham Clinton heads to the emerg-
ing global powerhouse Saturday for talks.

The two countries, with a long history of
mutual antagonism, are at odds over many
big issues: from currency and trade policy to
the U.S. naval dominance of the Asia-Pacif-
ic region, from U.S. arms sales to Taiwan
to China's human rights record and its ter-
ritorial disputes in the South China Sea.

But the Obama administration says it has
not given up on building stronger bonds with
Beijing, one of the world's fastest growing
economic and military powers.

In a speech in Honolulu Thursday, Clin-
ton talked tough, lumping China with North
Korea and Myanmar as sources of concern
about "deep-seated challenges" facing the
Asia-Pacific region.

She also urged Beijing to become the
United States’ partner in tackling a number
of regional and global challenges.

Despite the stormy U.S.-China relation-
ship, Drew Thompson, director of China
studies at the Nixon Centre in Washington,
sees the administration taking a stay-the-
course approach overall.

"It's only the Chinese who are down"
about the rocky side of the relationship,
Thompson said in an interview Thursday.

Kurt Campbell, the State Department's
top Asia policy official, said it is vital for
the U.S. to maintain "cool-headed" diplo-
macy with China.

"We all understand the stakes involved
and the importance for a positive, construc-
tive and, frankly, a relationship with a degree
of confidence between the United States
and China going forward," he said Tuesday
in describing Clinton's China visit.

Clinton was in Hanoi, Vietnam, on Fri-
day. She planned to meet with the Chinese
foreign minister there on Saturday before
making a brief visit to China's Hainan Island
with her Chinese counterpart, State Coun-
cilor Dai Bingguo. Their talks are intended
to raise some of the issues dividing the two
countries and pave the way for President
Hu Jintao's visit to Washington early next
year. Beijing's growing economic might and
more assertive role on the world stage make
its support crucial to many of President
Barack Obama's priorities — including halt-
ing the global spread of nuclear arms.

China is seen as the key to persuading
North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons
programme. China's dependence on Iran-
ian oil for its rapidly industrializing economy
makes it crucial to the success of U.N. sanc-
tions aimed at forcing Iran to negotiate over
its nuclear programme.

"We're seeking the mantra of a positive,
cooperative, constructive relationship," Jeff
Bader of the National Security Council said
Thursday.

He noted that Obama has met seven
times with Hu and three times with Premier
Wen Jiabao. "I guarantee you that's
unprecedented in modern history," Bader
said. But the US. has also felt compelled to
reassure Asian nations that the U.S. is not
ceding its major role in the Asia-Pacific
region, bolstering ties to longtime allies
Japan and South Korea.

In an unmistakable reference to China,
Clinton said Thursday that "military
buildups matched with ongoing territorial
disputes create anxieties that reverberate."
The disputes are a prominent part of the
backdrop to Clinton's stop on Hainan, a
tropical island east of Vietnam in the South
China Sea. A U.S. Navy spy plane was
forced to land there in April 2001 after it col-
lided with a Chinese fighter jet. The 24 US.
crew members were held for 11 days until
the Bush administration apologized for the
collision that killed a Chinese pilot.

China is also sparring with its neighbours
over control of the Spratly and Paracel
islands, claimed by Vietnam and other
nations as well as Beijing. The contested
islands straddle busy sea lanes that are a
crucial conduit for oil and other resources
fueling China's fast-expanding economy.

Clinton raised hackles in Beijing when
she said in July that the United States has a
national interest in the peaceful resolution of
competing claims to the islands.

The Pentagon has long expressed con-
cern about the rapid modernization of Chi-
na's military, particularly its focus on deploy-
ing ballistic missiles opposite Taiwan, the
semi-autonomous island that Beijing con-
siders a renegade province.

Defence Secretary Robert Gates accepted
an invitation to visit China and is expected to
go next year.

Shame on ZNS
for disrupting
TV, radio lines

EDITOR, The Tribune.

It would be appreciated if
you would please allow some
space in your editorial column
for this letter.

T have read the comments in
the newspapers, listened to the
radio and watched television in
regard to the anarchic behav-
iour of the staff of ZNS. The
comments of Fred Mitchell and
Philip “Brave” Davis were very
disappointing because they sat
in the same place in govern-
ment, and, in respect to Philip
“Brave” Davis, he has been in
the seat for 20 years.

During their terms, they
were aware of the problem
which successive governments
faced in trying to meet the pay-
roll for an over-staffed Civil
Service for many years. It is
noted that successive govern-
ments have had to make regu-
lar borrowings from the IMF
for salaries for the Civil Service

and to support the quasi-gov-
ernmental entities, of which
ZNS is only one.

In spite of this knowledge,
we have senior PLP politicians
seeking to mislead the public
with their political rhetoric and
deceitful statements to encour-
age this anarchy.

ZNS staffers, you are and
have been aware of the
impending downsizing. You
were also aware that you were
represented at the table by your
union representatives. When
you took your action against
this nation, you showed your-
selves incapable of abiding by
the rule of law which every
country must uphold.

Threats against the Head of

State of any country is tanta-
mount to a treasonous act. But
in The Bahamas., some of us
believe that we should be able
to do what we want, say what
we want, against whom we
want, with impunity.

If you know that we are in a
recession, and that you are not
creating sufficient income from
your company to keep you sol-
vent and meet your financial
obligations, what are you doing
going up against the state when
you are aware of these facts?

I say shame on all of you at
ZNS for disrupting this nation’s
television and radio lines. Do
things in decency and order and
in accordance with the rule of
law.

Complain less — and achieve more

EDITOR, The Tribune.

“And the people murmured and complained
against Moses, saying ‘What shall we drink?’

“And he cried unto the Lord and the Lord
shewed him a tree which when he had cast into
the waters, the waters were made sweet. And
said, If thou will diligently hearken to the voice of
the Lord thy God and wilt do that which is right
in his sight, and will give ear to His command-
ments and Keep all His statutes, I will put none of
these diseases upon thee.” — Exodus 15: 24 - 27.

Yes, there is a group of young men and young
women in this country who do not care. Yes,
there is a group of people who did a poor job of
parenting. Yes, some twenty years ago, some
young people were making children. What I'm
saying is that, children were having children and
knew nothing about parenting. Yes, we have
inherited a “seed planting” curse that some of our
forefathers had left behind. This curse of this
“seed planter” is still upon a group of our males
and the only thing they are doing is planting
seeds into a ground and they hardly know what
they are producing. So what will we do is the
question?

Every time you turn around on the radio we
hear of someone complaining about the Gov-
ernment. The Government should do this and the
Government should do the next. They should
build the roads; they should not build the roads.
They should give them jobs; they should not give
them jobs. It's time to stop complaining and start
giving thanks to God. Some countries do not
have roads.

Thank God you have life and do something
constructive with it. Anytime the complaining
murmuring spirit rises up, begin to pray and
praise God and give Him thanks. “O give thanks
unto the Lord for He is good and His mercy
endureth forever.” Just ask yourself this ques-
tion: “If my parents had complained where would
Ibe?” If God would complain every time we did
something sinful what would happen to us?
Bahamas, stop complaining. There are some peo-
ple who have never been on an airplane and they
live in North America. Stop complaining; there
are some people who have never riden in a car.
There are some people in this world who have

never sat on a toilet bowl that can flush, stop
complaining. There are some people who have
never seen a pump to pump water. As a matter of
fact some people still draw water from wells.
Stop complaining, Bahamas. God don't like it.

Icall upon every man, woman, boy and girl to
pick a day and don't complain but just pray and
give God thanks. “But the people were thirsty for
water there, and they grumbled against Moses.
They said, ‘Why did you bring us up out of Egypt
to make us and our children and livestock die of
thirst?’” — Exodus 17:3 “Moses ended up crying
before the Lord, ‘What shall I do unto the people,
they are ready to stone me?’ But God fixed it for
Moses and they called the place Massah (testing)
and Meribah (quarreling) because of the chiding
or complaining.”— Exodus 17: 3-7.

Even God gets angry of complainers. Com-
plainers get nothing done. Complainers are none
achievers. Complainers are not useful. Com-
plainers are always looking for a way out.

Hanna was a praying woman and not a com-
plainer and she had so much to complain about,
but she prayed instead. Ruth said: “Entreat me
not to leave thee, or to return from following
after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and
where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall
be my people, and thy God my God.” This
woman could have complained, but she did not.
That is why she met Boaz and her life was
changed.

My brothers and sisters, Esther could have
also complained but she chose to do something
about the plot to destroy the Jews. -Esther 3:1 -
15.

Complain less and achieve more by doing
something about the matter. Stop complaining.
Let's take a troubled young man and show him
love.

Let's try to give him something new. Yes, he
might not know who his father might be and,
yes, he does not know what it is for a real man to
put his arms around him and say, “God loves
you and so do I.” Let us stop the complaining as
a people and show love and kindness to all.

Renowned film critic
{0 deliver this year's
Anatol Rodgers
Memorial Lecture

.



DR. ANNA EVERETT

THE School of English Stud-
ies at the College of the
Bahamas will host its fifth
annual Anatol Rodgers Memo-
rial Lecture with special guest
Dr Anna Everett on Thursday,
November 4.

As a recent winner of the
prestigious UCSB Plous
Award, Dr Everett is excep-
tionally experienced in the
fields of film and TV history,
African-American film and cul-
ture, and digital media tech-
nologies. She is the author of
Returning the Gaze: A Geneal-
ogy of Black Film Criticism,
1909-1949 and Digital Diaspora:
A Race for Cyberspace. She is
the founder and managing edi-
tor of the Internet newsletter,
Screening Noir Online.

Dr Everett has written
numerous articles including
“The Revolution Will Be Digi-
tised: Afrocentricity and the
Digital Public Sphere” and
“The Black Press in the Age of
Digital Reproduction.”

Her presentation at this
year’s Anatol Rodgers Memo-
rial Lecture, “Have We
Become Postracial Yet?:
Trends in Race, Media and
Identity Politics in the Age of
Obama” is expected to attract
film and media enthusiasts, stu-
dents and academics from the
College and the wider commu-
nity. Organizer for this year’s
event, Dr Toni Francis, Assis-
tant Professor in the School of
English Studies, said Dr Anna
Everett is one of the leading
historians of black film criti-
cism.

“Her breadth of knowledge
on race and film criticism
makes her an excellent choice
for a lecture here at the Col-
lege of the Bahamas, where we
offer courses in race and film,
film criticism and film history.

Dr Everett's current research
on race representation in video
games and her work on the
media coverage of the Barack
Obama presidential race are
also topics that would be of
great interest not only to our
students but also to the general
public,” said Dr Francis.

Dr Marjorie Brooks-Jones,
chair of the School of English
Studies, commented that this
year’s choice of speaker is most
appropriate given the media’s
interest in, and representations
of, President Obama.

Dr Brooks-Jones added that
Dr Everett’s visit to the college
is timely as earlier this year, the
college hosted the Sidney Poiti-
er International Conference
and Film Festival, a hugely suc-
cessful event.

The school has also recently
added a minor in drama and
film studies.

She said: “The study of film
continues to attract students in
the humanities and the School
of English Studies prides itself
on keeping up to date with
developments 1n the academy.
For us, it makes a great deal of
sense for the speaker to be a
film scholar.”

The Anatol Rodgers Memo-
rial Lecture will be held at the
College of the Bahamas Per-
forming Arts Centre, Oakes
Field on Thursday November
4 at 7 pm. Immediately follow-
ing the event, Dr Everett will
hold a book signing. The public
is invited to attend this free
event.

The lecture series is named in
honour of the late Anatol
Rodgers who contributed to the
development of education in
the Bahamas from 1933-1975,
and who was the third Bahami-
an and first female principal of
the Government High School
(1971-1975). Although she
taught a variety of subjects dur-
ing her professional life, Mrs
Rodgers’ first love was English.

The School of English Stud-
ies has featured well-known
scholars and writers in this
annual lecture, including Hait-
ian-American scholar and
author, Joanne Hyppolite
(2005); Guyanese poet, novelist,
playwright and professor, Fred
D’ Aguiar (2006); Professor of
English and Director of the
Institute of Caribbean Studies
at UWI, Mona, Carolyn Coop-
er (2007); Ghanaian writer, uni-
versity professor and 2009
Emmy award winner for his
multi-media project Hope: Liv-
ing and Loving with HIV in
Jamaica, Kwame Dawes (2008);
and world-renowned poet, play-
wright, author and Nobel Lau-
reate Derek Walcott (2009).



HEARING: BAILLOU HILL ROAD/MARKET STREET ROAD WORKS

Lawyers debate timing of
judicial review application

By NATARIO McKENZIE
Tribune Staff Reporter
nmckenzie@tripunemedia.net

A HEARING over a judicial review
application brought on behalf of busi-
ness owners affected by road works on
the Baillou Hill Road and Market
Street corridors continued as lawyers
made submissions on whether or not
the application had been brought too
late.

Attorney General John Delaney,
who is representing Public Works and
Transport Minister Neko Grant in the
action, claimed the applicants had wait-
ed more than 10 years in bringing the
application and had not asked for an
extension of time.

Mr Delaney argued that this ought to
impact their ability to gain relief from
the court. He contended that the min-
ister had acted lawfully and with pro-

PM PRESENTS JUNKANOO
PIECES TO CHINA MUSEUM

CEREMONY: Prime Minister
Hubert Ingraham preparing to
cut the ceremonial ribbon mark-
ing the official opening of The
Bahamas Maritime Authority
(BMA) Office in Hong Kong, Chi-
na on Monday.

PRIME Minister Hubert
Ingraham has presented five
Junkanoo pieces to the China
National Museum of Fine Arts
to be added to their collection.

Speaking at the presenta-
tion, Mr Ingraham explained
to the Chinese people the sig-
nificance of Junkanoo in
Bahamian culture.

“Art so often tells the story
of a people as your fine exhibits
show. For us in the Bahamas,
Junkanoo — a music parade and
costume extravaganza — is an
important facet of our social
culture. Inherited from our
African forefathers, Junkanoo
is an integral part of our cul-
tural imagination. Today it is
one of the more popular and
dynamic expressions of
Bahamian cultural heritage,”
he said.

“This festival of freedom is
inextricably tied in the minds
of Bahamians with Boxing Day
and New Year’s celebrations.
Yet, its brilliance is not bound
by any season, class or creed
and it has become the music we
use to mark significant national
milestones. And so it is my
great pleasure to present to you
this evening, five beautiful
Junkanoo pieces to be added
to your impressive art collec-
tion.”

The five pieces selected for
the China National Museum of
Fine Arts were hand-crafted by
skilled and talented artists in
the Bahamas, Mr Ingraham
said. “They are beautifully dec-
orated with vibrant colour using
crepe paper, paint, glitter, beads
and other ornaments. They
represent some of what one
might see paraded by our
Bahamian junkanooers, during
our Boxing Day and New
‘Year’s Day.”

The prime minister said these
pieces depict the mystical won-
ders, rich culture and heritage
of the Bahamas.

“They are also a part of the
success story of the Shanghai
Expo 2010, marking the
Bahamas’ participation in the
Expo and they are a tribute to
the spirit of friendship and
cooperation already established
between our two countries,” he
said. Prime Minister Ingraham
is visiting the country at the
invitation of the Chinese gov-
ernment to discuss issues with
several local companies and the
government of the People's
Republic of China.

out of time during the initial stages of
the matter. He noted that during the
hearing for an injunction as well as a
Court of Appeal hearing stemming
from that issue, no mention had been
made of any delay.

According to Mr Glinton, there had
never been any complaints about the
road reversal itself, but rather the nui-

Justice Neville Adderley will now
make a ruling in the matter. It is
unclear when that decision could be
handed down.

THE TRIBUNE

By NATARIO McKENZIE
Tribune Staff Reporter
nmckenzie@tribunemedia.net

A 27-year-old man was
arraigned in a Magistrate’s
Court yesterday on a long
list of weapons and ammu-
nitions charges.

Police have charged Jamal
Gaitor of Prince Charles
Drive with seven counts of
possession of an unlicensed
firearm.

According to court dock-
ets, it is alleged that on
October 21 Gaitor was
found in possession of a
Austria Glock .45 pistol, a
9mm Taurus Pistol, three 38
Taurus revolvers, a HI Point
.380 Pistol as well as a High
Standard .22 revolver.

Possession

Gaitor was also allegedly
found in possession of 20
live rounds of .45 ammuni-
tion, 302 live rounds of .380
ammunition, 202 live rounds
of 9mm ammunition, 50 live
rounds of .25 ammunition
and 20 live rounds of .22
ammunition.

The accused, who was
arraigned before Chief Mag-
istrate Roger Gomez in
Court One, Bank Lane,
pleaded not guilty to the
charges.

The prosecution objected
to his being granted bail on
the grounds that investiga-
tions were ongoing. They
said that if released, Gaitor
might interfere with the
inquiry.

His attorney Cheryl
Bazard argued that Gaitor
had turned himself in to
police after his picture had
appeared on television.

She told the court that he
had been in police custody
since Wednesday, had no
previous convictions and

was not a flight risk. She fur-
ther told the court that the
weapons and ammunition
were not found on her
client, in his home or in his
vehicle.

Gaitor was granted bail in
the sum of $25,000 with one

Lawyer accused of wittholding
more than $20,000 from client

of RG Brown and Co in Hooper’s Bay,
Exuma, has until Monday to respond
to a Supreme Court writ of summons in
which she is accused of failing to pay
her client Laven Delwood Hall after
taking money for his property.

Mr Hall claims he hired Ms Brown
to act on his behalf in the sale of two
lots in Bahama Sound, Exuma, to
Lawrence and Natasha Jones in April
2008.

And after the sale was agreed at
$27,000, attorneys acting on behalf of
the purchasers gave Ms Brown a
cheque to close the sale.

After deductions for the deposit,
stamp duty, recording fees and real
property taxes, $21,632.30 was due to
be given to Mr Hall and he was givena

cheque for this amount on August 20,
2008. However, Mr Hall claims he has
yet to see a penny of the proceeds.

According to the Supreme Court
writ issued by Peter Maynard, Counsel
and Attorneys, on October 15, Ms
Brown advised Mr Hall at the Busi-
ness Licence Office in Nassau on
August 21, 2008, that he would receive
payment in one weck’s time, after the
cheque had cleared.

Close

When the payment did not materi-
alise seven days later, Ms Brown told
her client she, “had to close out her
account and could not give him the
proceeds yet.”

The writ states: “A further week

Hall) made another oral request to the
defendant (Ms Brown) for the pro-
ceeds, and continued doing so on a
weekly basis for about three or four
months.

“Despite the several requests by the
plaintiff, the defendant, in breach of
the said contract, has failed to remit
the said proceeds to the plaintiff as
requested or at all, and continues to
wrongfully retain the same.”

Mr Hall claims special damages of
$21,632.30 as well as damages, interest,
costs and further relief as the court
deems fit.

He said the court action follows crim-

General Brokers & Agents clients
in New Providence

Effective November 1, 2010 the Property and Casualty Division of
General Brokers & Agents Ltd. (GBA) becomes part of NUA
Insurance Agents & Brokers Ltd. (NUA). GBA’s Property and
Casualty policyholders in Nassau will now be serviced by NUA,
and the Property and Casualty Division and staff of GBA have
been relocated to the NUA Service Centre on Third Terrace and
Collins Avenue, just across the street from the GBA building.

The Life and Health clients of GBA will continue to be serviced at
the existing location of GBA on Collins Avenue.

GBA clients in Nassau who have had the Insurance Company of
West Indies (Bahamas) Ltd (ICWI) as their insurance carrier will
now have the option to select Bahamas First General Insurance
(BFG), as their carrier with the changeover occurring at the time
of their policy renewal. GBA clients in Nassau whose carrier has
been BFG will continue to have BFG as their carrier.

These changes are the result of the acquisition of a majority
interest in General Brokers & Agents Ltd. by Bahamas First
Holdings Limited.

Bahamas First is the largest local Property and Casualty insurer in
The Bahamas and has an AM Best Rating of A- (Excellent), which
reflects the company’s excellent capital and liquidity position as
well as its superior operational results.

Note to GBA clients in Grand Bahama: GBA clients in Grand Bahama will continue to
be serviced by General Brokers & Agents (Grand Bahama) Limited, reporting to NUA. If
you have had the Insurance Company of West Indies (Bahamas) Ltd (ICWI) as your
insurance carrier you will now have the option to select Bahamas First General Insurance
(BFG), as your carrier with the changeover occurring at the time of their policy renewal.
GBA clients in Freeport whose carrier has been BFG will continue to have BFG as their
carrier. The portfolio of the Carib Insurance Agency (Grand Bahama) Limited, that
operates as a Branch of NUA, will be combined with that of GBA (Grand Bahama) with its

Tropical Storm Shary
approaches Bermuda

ELIZABETH ROBERTS,
Associated Press

HAMILTON, Bermuda

Bermuda canceled ferry
services and urged islanders
to secure their boats as Trop-
ical Storm Shary swirled
toward the tiny British
Atlantic territory Friday.

The storm had sustained
winds of 70 mph (110 kph)
and could gain strength
before passing near or just
east of the island by early Sat-
urday morning, according to
the U.S. National Hurricane
Center in Miami.

The darkening skies did not
dampen the spirits of tourists
like Bill and Margaret Breen,
a married couple from
Boston, who carried rain jack-
ets as they strolled through
Hamilton.

"We're flying home tomor-

row afternoon, so the only
issue could be the storm
affecting the flight. But there
would be a lot worse things
than to stay another day,”
said Bill Breen, 45.

Friday afternoon, Shary's
core was about 80 miles (130
kilometers) south-southeast
of Bermuda, according to the
hurricane center. It was mov-
ing northeast at 16 mph (26
kph).

Boats

Derrick Binns, the perma-
nent secretary of the Home
Affairs Ministry, called on
islanders to tie up their boats
and secure any outdoor fur-
niture that could blow away in
the wind. He also urged
cyclists and motorists to be
careful on the roads. Shary is

Tobago, Grenada, St Vincent and the Grenadines, as
Tomas generated 40mph winds with higher gusts.

The centre of the 19th named storm of the season was
located near latitude 11.1 north and longitude 57.5 west

at 5pm last night.

Rain

Tomas is expected to produce three to five inches of
rainfall, with possible isolated amounts of eight inches in
portions of the Windward and Southern Leeward Islands.

A risk of localised flooding is also presented by storm
surge accompanied by large and potentially destructive

Waves.

The storm was expected to strengthen during the next
48 hours and forecasters warned it could become a hur-

ricane by tomorrow.

the 19th named storm of the
Atlantic hurricane season.

In late September, Hurri-
cane Igor knocked out power
to half of Bermuda when it
passed nearby as a Category 1
hurricane. It did not cause any
major damage or injuries,
however. Also Friday, Tropi-
cal Storm Tomas formed in
the Atlantic, and forecasters
said it could become a hurri-
cane after passing over the
Windward Islands on Satur-
day.

ATTACKING THE LANES: Students from Garvin Tynes Primary § School have a ball bowling at Mario’s Bowling Lanes on Friday.

BABYING {HE BALL

Gavin Tynes Primary School students taught to bowl at Mario’s Bowling Lanes

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

THEY could have easily
been playing basketball or
running an exercise at school.
Instead, coach Katrinka Mar-
shall decided to take her phys-
ical education classes to Mar-
io’s Bowling Lanes.

Yes, the grade 1-3 students
of Garvin Tynes Primary
School have been spending at
least one hour each day for
the past six weeks at the new
family entertainment center
on the Tonique Darling High-
way where they have been
taught how to bowl.

Katrinka Marshall, a physi-
cal education teacher at
Garvin Tynes, said she wanted
to expose her students as ear-
ly as possible to the game, so
that they can develop their
skills.

“The more practice and the
more exposure that they get,
the better they will get,” said

Marshall, noting that her prin-
cipal Mariska Hart is sup-
porting her 100 percent in the
programme.

The programme, which
average between 15-25 stu-
dents in the two classes each
day, got started in September
and Marshall said she intend
to make it a yearly event
because of the tremendous
response that she’s gotten
from both the school and the
parents.

Odette Carey, the market-
ing manager at Mario’s Bowl-
ing Lanes, said it was a plea-
sure for them to entertain the
youngsters.

“For the past six weeks,
they have been here bowling,”
Carey said. “They come here
every day and they have fun
and they enjoy bowling., So
we try to make it as fun and
exciting for them as possible.”

While there have been oth-
er schools who have popped
in from time to time to take in
a session or two, Carey said

Garvin Tynes is the first that
have actually included it into
their curriculum.

But she noted that because
of their initial participation,
Mario’s Bowling Lanes will
become a household name for
many more schools in the
future.

“A lot of schools come here
as a field trip, but not too
many of them have incorpo-
rated it into their physical edu-
cation programme,” Carey
pointed out. “So this is the
first school that we have had
that has taken it seriously.

“T encourage all schools to
take part. Bowling is a sport
that is recognized all around
the world. People win schol-
arships to bowl, so it’s a sport
that should be taken seriously,
especially here at Mario’s
Bowling.”

Most of the students that
The Tribune got to watch in
action were quite thrilled to
be wearing their bowling
shoes and actually lifting and





. =

rolling the balls, which in
some cases, were heavier than
some of them.

“A lot of them have been
learning how to hold the ball
and they are having a lot of
fun doing it,” Marshall
stressed. “I’ve designed a quiz
for them and they have been
going through with it, follow-
ing up on what they have been
taught in the games here at
the lanes.

“We've had students who
have finished their games and
have gotten extra frames, so
they are doing extremely
well,” said Marshall, who has
seen the best score posted of
126 from Mark Maycock.

Although she’s seen a low
score of about 25, Marshall
said they have not been mak-
ing an issue about it because
at the end of the day, she just
want to ensure that all of the
students fully develop their
game.

Arthurnell Higgs of Mario’s
Bowling Lanes said the stu-

Tim Clarke/Tribune staff



dents have been very recep-
tive.

“They were very excited,
energetic and love to bowl,”
Higgs stated. “I didn’t have
any problems with them.
Some had some gutter balls,
but a lot of them bowled quite
well. It was fun working with
them.”

Javan Johnson, a five-year-
old grade two student said he
had a “lot of fun. I learn how
to bowl.”

Aleeyah Neymour, a six-
year-old grade two student
said she “enjoy rolling the
ball. I like to bowl.”

Next term, Marshall said
she intend to take her stu-
dents on the Bahamas Golf
Federation’s driving range
where they are expected to
be given some valuable point-
ers on how to lay the game of
golf.

“We want to develop full
rounded students here at
Garvin Tynes,” Marshall
declared.

GREAT TIME: Coach Kerinka Mi Marshall (left) along with some of her students from Garvin Tynes, pose above with Arthurnell Higgs and Ordell Carey from Mario’s Bowling Lanes

30 countries expected to participate in Nike Junior Tour

THE Nike Junior Tour
(NJT) International Masters
has become more than just a
tennis tournament. It has
become an experience. This
year all the under-12 and
under-14 boys and girls who
qualify will have a totally new
experience.

This year the tournament
will be bigger than ever before
with 30 countries expected to
vie for top honours. With the
dates now December 8 to 15
the Masters will be played lat-
er than usual. The reason for
this is that it will fall in the
week separating the Eddie
Herr and Orange Bowl tour-
naments.

But one thing that will not
change is the beauty and

charm of the venue.

For the fifth time in its 14-
year history, the NJT Interna-
tional Masters will be hosted at
a Club Med venue and this
year it will be staged at Club
Med Columbus Isle on the
Island of San Salvador in The
Bahamas.

All the players will be able
to experience a piece of histo-
ty because it was on these very
beaches that Christopher
Columbus landed on the ship
called the Santa Maria, on his
journey to discover America
in the year 1492.

For the past two years the
tournament has been played
on hard courts but this year it
will revert to clay.

The 30 countries expected

to line up are France, Italy,
Croatia, Spain, Czech Repub-
lic, Germany, Switzerland,
Holland, Hungary, Slovakia,
Belgium, Israel, United King-
dom, Russia, Serbia, UAE,
Belarus, Morocco, China,
Brazil, USA, Mexico, Argenti-
na, Chile, South Africa,
Bosnia, Sweden, Slovenia,
Ukraine and Turkey.

The Nike Junior Tour has
now been a breeding ground
for young tennis players since
1997 when the concept was
introduced by Chris Ver-
meeren and the first event
played at Hilversum in Hol-
land. Since then the NJT Inter-
national Masters has travelled
all over the world and has
been hosted in Germany,

Spain, South Africa, the
Bahamas, France, Italy, the
USA and the Dominican

Already players such as cur-
rent world No 1 Rafael Nadal,
Sweden's Robin Soderling,
Juan Martin del Potro from
Argentina, Czech Thomas
Berdych, Israel's Shahar Peer,
and Czech Lucie Safarova
have all cut their tennis teeth
at the Nike Junior Tour. All
are household names and it
should not be long before oth-
ers, such as Carlos Boluda
(Spain), Tiago Fernandes
(Brazil), An-Sophie Mestach
(Belgium) and Ajla Toml-
janovic (Croatia) jom that list.
“Nadal-Berdych, Nadal-Soder-
ling, the last two Men's Grand

Slam's finals opposed Nike
Junior Tour players," said
Nike Junior Tour Project
Leader, Philippe Weiss.
"What a big achievement
for our tournament which has
become the biggest and the
most prestigious tournament
for the U12 and U14 cate-
gories. But more than a ten-
nis tournament, the NJT is
about fun, excitement, human
experience, sharing outstand-
ing moments together and no
doubt this year again in
Bahamas, at Club Med
Columbus Isle, we will have
an unforgettable edition."

looking forward to hosting
children from all over the
world. See youin December."

put in place
by NPABO



THE international governing
body for basketball made new rule
changes effective earlier this month
and the New Providence Associa-
tion of Basketball Officials
(NPABO) ensured its members
would be kept abreast of these
changes.

In what has been dubbed one of
the finest gatherings of basketball
officials in the history of basket-
ball in the Bahamas, the brought to
a close its two day session on
FIBA’s 2010 - ‘New Rules & Rule
Changes Clinics.’

The evening’s rules coverage was
highlighted by the very intense pre-
sentation of National Instructor -
Freddie Brown and the support-
ive input of former President of
the New Providence Basketball
Association (NPBA) and past boss
of NPABO - Kendal Taylor. This
came in the backdrop of light
hearted debate and discussion on
the impact on how the various rules
changes would be pertinent to the
sustenance of good basketball on
the

Island of New Providence, and
indeed, the Commonwealth of the
Bahamas. Someone quipped that
‘this is as high powered as one
could get in basketball officiating in
our little country’.

Rich dialogue was led by the
Association’s - Chief Climician:
Norman ‘Mouch’ Humes. Joming
in on the exchange of ideas was:

FIBA - Internationally Certified
Referee - Terez Conliffe, Gregory
‘Pepper’ Clarke, Geno Nairn,
Devon ‘Dee’ Johnson and new ref-
eree candidate Elvis Pierre. Coach
Harcourt McCoy of the Doris
Johnson Mystic Marlins attended.
Mr. McCoy, who doubles as Senior
Master at Doris, remarked that he
thought that it was essential that
as the Coordinator of the upcom-
ing annual pre-season

2010 Mystic Marlins Senior Boys
Basketball Tournament that he
was provided the opportunity to
fully grasp the ‘New Rules & Rule
Changes’.

In closing, NPABO’ President —
Tony Williams noted that he was
elated that in his vision outlined in
“The Philosophy of The
Approach” in the opening session
had come to fruition. He pointed
out that he was excited that a cross
section of the refereeing fraternity
saw fit to attend the clinics. He
mentioned the young members -
‘Dee’ Johnson and Elvis Pierre and
pointed to the veterans - Geno
Nairn and ‘Pepper Clarke. Mr.
Williams provided a special wel-
come to Ms. Terez Conliff for hav-
ing the fortitude to come forward
as the single woman in organized
basketball officiating. On behalf of
the Association, he offered grati-
tude to the Senior Master — Doris
Johnson Senior High School, the
Administration and Staff for hav-
ing the facilities available to host
the sessions. He indicated his
appreciation to Chief Clinician
‘Mouch’ Humes for his evolvement
in the process. The President
thanked Mr. Kendal Taylor for
travelling all the way from South
Andros to lend a hand, noting that
he still had a passion for the devel-
opment for basketball officiating.
He conveyed gratitude to the
National Instructor for the fine
contribution that he made; express-
ing that he hoped that Mr. Brown,
the Bahamas Basketball Federa-
tion (BBF) and the New Provi-
dence Association of Basketball
Officials could join hands in future
undertaking of this nature. Finally,
he promised that this was only the
beginning of plans to fully educate
and enriched the community in the
tules of basketball and proper offi-
ciating.

Temple Christian hosts first Primary
Schools Invitational Basketball Tournament

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

FOR the first time, Temple
Christian Suns will provide an
avenue to display their prowess
against its arch rivals in their first
Primary Schools Invitational Bas-
ketball Tournament.

Beginning on Monday with the
girls division and continuing on
Tuesday with the boys, the
Bahamas Gold Trading sponsored
tournament will run throughout
the week at the Temple Christian
School’s Gymnasium with both the
private and government schools
participating.

“The sole purpose is to get more
inactive with both the private and
government schools,” said Keno
Demeritte, who has coached the
Suns to a winning record over the
past decade, not just in track and
field, but also basketball.

“We really don’t have that many
games to play, except for tourna-
ments, so we decided to put in one
of our own so that we can get more
games for the kids here at Temple
Christian.”

So far, Demeritte said they have
already had eight girls teams signed
up and they will play out of two
pools, while there are 13 boys will
be matched up in three different

ools.

“Tt should be a real stiff competi-
tion, especially in the boys,”
Demeritte said. “I’m a little biased,
so I would say that I really don’t
expect that much competition in
the girls.

“In the last 7-8 years, our girls
have only lost about three games so
T really don’t think that we will have
that much competition in the girls.
I think it will be a challenge for any
team that wants to participate in
the tournament.”

Brandino Brown, manager of
sponsors Bahamas Gold Trading
said they decided to come on board
because of Temple Christian’s prox-
imity in the community where their

day at Temple Christian.

business is located.

Plus, he noted that “they have
an excellent basketball programme
under coach Demeritte for some
years. So I decided to help him out
with this programme that he is
doing for the kids.”

Brown, who attended the press
conference with his wife, Shonell,
said their company located on
Rosetta Street intend to offer cash
incentive prizes for the winning
schools and they will also be donat-
ing all of the trophies and medals to
the various recipients.

“We just want to help coach
Demeritte to get the school name
out there,” Brown said. “This is an
excellent programme. They have
been winning in Freeport, Grand

Bahama, but this is the first time
that they will get to showcase their
talent in their own tournament.

“So it’s time for the Nassavians to
really know about the Temple Suns.
They will get a chance to see this
school that we are so proud to be
affiliated with, perform right here at
home.”

Teams will be vying for trophies
for first and second places in both
the boys and girls, while individual
medals will be presented to the first
through third place finishers. There
will be also the most outstanding
make and female awards presented
to the deserving players.

The tournament kicks off at 3:30
pin. on Monday at Temple Christ-
jan Academy.



“In the last 7-8 years,
our girls have only lost
about three games so
T really don’t think
that we will have that
much competition in
the girls. I think it
will be a challenge for
any team that wants
to participate in the
tournament.”

Johnson suffered another loss for
Proper Care Pool.

Unlike the previous three games
of the series, both teams saved
their best offensive attacks for the
grand finale as they entertained
the fans in the longest game played
all season long.

Christine Edmunds had a per-
fect 4-for-4 night with a triple, dri-
ving in two runs and scoring three
times to pace the way for the Wild-
cats. Donette Edwards was 2-for4
with three RBI and two runs
scored; Jeanette Hilton was 2-for-

from Eleuthera, the Home Furni-

Net Mariners from Grand Bahama.

Commando Security, however,
have petitioned the courts for an
injunction against the NPSA, deny-
ing Dorin United to be declared
the champions, citing that they
should have been allowed to just
pay a fine and continue playing,
rather than being explelled from
the remainder of the series.

While their lawyer, Christina
Galanis from Lockhart and Co.,
was able to file the injunction on
Thursday, it was reported that a
court hearing is set for Thursday,
the same day that the BSF 1s
expected to kick off the round

Call for improvement to
dog pound conditions

FROM page one

days of being brought into the pound will be
euthanised on Fridays.

However, members of BAARK, Proud
Paws, ARK, and AFAR, are concerned they
are not given adequate care before they are
killed.

They want kennels at the pound to be
cleaned and sterilised twice a day, for ani-
mals to be given adequate food and water
and for them to receive proper veterinary
care when kept at the facility.

They also want to ensure animals are
sedated before they are killed.

Adoption

All adoptable dogs should be transferred
tothe Bahamas Humane Society next door,
where they can receive proper health checks
and treatment prior to adoption, the activists
said.

And accurate records should be kept to
show how many stray dogs and cats are col-
lected from the streets each week, how many
are turned in by their owners, and full finan-
cial records as well as a logbook of staff
activities.

“At present, Minister, as we have indi-
cated to you in our many reports and con-
versations, all of the above points at pre-
sent are not being done,” the letter states.

“These are living creatures that we are

have no feelings.

“These dogs have daily needs to survive.

“The fact that most of these animals will
be euthanized does not give anyone the
right to mistreat them until they are put to
sleep.

“Denying them food and water or medical
treatment to ease their suffering is cruel-
ty! ”

Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham, Deputy
Prime Minister Brent Symonette, Director
of Agriculture Simeon Pinder and Canine
Control Unit senior veterinary officer God-
frey Springer were also sent copies of the let-
ter.

Sgt Rolle encouraged
those dressing up to not
incorporate imitation
firearms, knives and swords
in their Halloween cos-
tumes.

He also advised people to
use facepaint rather than
masks so they can be identi-
fied.

Police press officer Sgt
Chrislyn Skippings said
police are doing everything
they can to ensure people
feel safe by stepping up
patrols over the weekend.

“We ask for parents to

When trick-or-treating,
children should only go to
the homes of people they
know, and residents should
keep their homes well-lit,
only answering the door to
people they know, and nev-
er letting trick-or-treaters
inside.

Hundreds of children
were expected to attend a
party at the Police Training
College in Thompson
Boulevard last night, an
event to ensure children
have a safe place to cele-
brate Halloween.

THE nursery at Periwinkles School provides an enriching environment that is innovative,
exciting and reflects the fact that children learn faster when school is fun.

Principal Lawrona Strachan said the programme seeks to instil a sense of responsibility in
youngsters, and a love of learning that emphasises creativity.

This year, the school introduced a special reading programme called “Your Baby Can
Read” using language development exercises that staff say have been very successful.
