INTERNATIONAL BASKETBALL COACHES CLINIC

Move to continue improving
skills of basketball coaches

By RENALDO DORSETT

Sports Reporter
rdorsett@tribunemedia.net

IN an effort to further develop the

level of the product produced on the
floor, the Bahamas Basketball Fed-

tive of improving the skills of coaches

The BBF recently announced it will
host its second annual International

iad of high profile coaches imported
for a weekend of tutelage in various
aspects of the game.

This year's edition of the event will
be hosted in conjunction with the
Atlantis Resort, August 3-7, at the

vested interest in basketball since it
hosted the "Battle at Atlantis" and

just the third country to receive

exempt status from the NCAA.
According to federation executives,

the objective of the clinic, which will

increase the pool of qualified coaches
in the country in the various leagues

Edgar Pickstock, Vice President of



LAWRENCE HEPBURN

the Bahamas Basketball Federation
"Although their contribution has
already been so great thus far, Atlantis
and its team continues to go above
and beyond the call of duty in terms of
the development of the game of bas-
ketball in this country,” he said,
"Atlantis will be lending its assistance
to the BBF for the second edition of
its International Coaches Clinic.
Coaches from top Division I Univer-

sities such as Duke, North Carolina
and others. With respects to the
exempt status we expect great things
out of this and it gives us an even
greater opportunity for us to market
our tours and events.

The BBF completed its first edition
of the International Basketball Coach-
es Clinic last August with a myriad of
high profile coaches imported for a
weekend of tutelage in various aspects
of the game.

BBF president Lawrence Hepburn
said the progression of the game, in
the increased knowledge of its coach-
es is not an option, but is mandated by
the federation.

“As a federation, whether it is this
administration or the next, we are
faced with a mandate to educate our
coaches,” he said, “We must also
ensure that our young athletes are in
the best possible position to succeed
by receiving the best possible coaching
they can have.”

At the conclusion of last year's clin-
ic, Hepburn noted the disappointing
number of local coaches who took
advantage of the event, something the
federations hopes will improve this
year.

“The one thing that appears to be a
bit of a disappointment is the turnout
from local coaches. I must say we
expected a greater turnout based on
the number and calibre of visiting
coaches we had in town to conduct

the clinic. We anticipated more than
50 coaches to come and take part and
that did not happen but as a federation
it is our job to provide the opportuni-
ties, to learn it is up to these coaches to
take advantage,” he said.

“For those that attended it was an
experience for them that they will not
soon forget and would undoubtedly
make them better at what they do. It
was a learning experience for those
that came to listen, but also for those
who presented and many lasting rela-
tionships were formed.”

Highlighting the group of visiting
coaches was Frank Martin, head coach
of the Kansas State Wildcats.

Martin led the upstart Wildcats to
the Elite Eight round of the NCAA
tournament. They finished the season
29-8 overall, second in the Big 12 at
11-5, and ended the season as the sev-
enth ranked team in the nation.

Also appearing at the event was
Ronnie Arrow, head coach of the Uni-
versity of South Alabama, Ed Kersh-
ner, iconic high school coach and
member of the Florida High School
Basketball Hall of Fame, Royce Huse-
man - Kingwood High School Texas
5A State Championship Coach, Gale
Goestenkors - University of Texas,
Larry Tidwell - Lamar University,

@x GUNITE POOLS/SWIFT SWIMMING 20TH ANNIVERSARY SWIM MEET



Swift Swimming dominate meet



VICTORY IS SWEET: Swift celebration cake.

By BRENT STUBBS

Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

SWIFT Swimming literally cut
their cake and ate it too as they dom-
inated their Gunite Pools/Swift
Swimming 20th Anniversary Swim
Meet on Saturday night at the Betty
Kelly Kenning Aquatic Center.

Swift Swimming compiled a 1,018
point victory to easily beat out the
six-team field as they shared their
anniversary cake during the post-
meet celebrations. Their nearest rival
was the Barracuda Swim Club with
519.

"We made a real effort to get a lot
of our kids out so they can get in
their times,” said head coach Andy
Knowles, who started the club in
1990, but their first season was
launched in 1990/91 calendar year.
"So they did very well.”

Reminiscent of the earlier days of
their existence, Swift Swimming
changed the format of the meet
where they hosted the heats in the

morning and staged the finals in the
evening over the two day period -
similar to what is done at the
Bahamas Swimming Federation's
Nationals and the Carifta Games.

Additionally, Swift Swimming
through their long-time sponsor
Gunite Pool, presented the top three
high point winners in each of the six
age group with a pot of flower that
had their gold, silver or bronze
medal stuck in the middle.

They also were presented with a
coupon from Wendy's Restaurant.
Like they did in dominating the
meet, Swift Swimming captured all
but two of the top individual high
point awards. Dustin Tynes, com-
peting unattached in the boys 13-
and-over and Allison Taylor from
Team Orca in Grand Bahama, com-
peting in the girls 8-and-under,
crashed the party.

Tynes, 14, collected a total of 43
points for his title over Anibal Her-
nandez Valdes of Swift and Peter
Farquharson, unattached, who both
had 39. Taylor, 7, collected 32 points
to out-distance Swift's Dylan

performances.

Swift's individual winners were
Mark Thompson (43) 8-and-under
boys;

Lilly Higgs (50) 9-10 girls; Peter
Morley (59) 9-10 boys; Tremaine
Allen (52) 11-12 girls; Nick Holm-
berg (55) 11-12 boys and Laura Mor-
ley (49) 13-and-over girls.

Pleased

A number of the swimmers inter-
viewed after the meet were pleased
with their performances.

"It was good. I was happy with my
performance," said Albury, who had
a successful showing in the girls 100
fly. "The competition was good.
I'm in the lower end of my age
group, but I was happy with my per-
formance."

Morley, the 14-year-old champion
in the girls 13-and-over division, said
it's still early in the season, but she

was pleased with her effort.

"I did a couple of personal bests,
so that was exciting,” stated Mor-
ley, who competed in the 50 and 100
breast, 50 back, 200 and 400 IM and
200 free.

Simone Sturrup, competing in the
girls 11-12 division, said she felt she
did a great job.

"T think I did a great job. I did per-
sonal best and I made the cut for
CCCAN," said Sturrup, who sur-
passed the qualifying time in the 50
fl

"The competition was good at
times, but I didn't have a lot of
push."

Tremaine Allen, the winner of the
girls 11-12 division over Sturrup, said
she got off to a shaky start, but as the
meet progressed, she got better.

"T felt good about my performance.
Ihave to keep working at it to make
sure I get my Carifta times because I
need them know to qualify," she
stressed.

Peter Morley, 9, said his perfor-
mance was good.

"IT was very happy, especially with

my 50 free because I came first just
by a touch,” he reflected.
"T think I can do better.”
Lilly Higgs, 10, was more delight-
ed in the improvement of her times.

"I beat some of my times I did
early in the meet,” said Higgs, about
her 50 free and both the 50 and 100
back. "I'm hoping that I can contin-
ue to improve. I want to win Nation-
als this year."

Nick Holmberg, 12, said he had a
great time competing in the meet.

"I think my performance was very
good,” said Holmberg, who was
impressed with his 50 fly and 50 and
100 free.

"Tjust want to continue beating my
times as I go this year.’

Anibal Hernandez, 15, said he per-
formed well, but there's still a lot
more room for improvement.

"I'm planning on making the Carif-
ta team again this year and hopeful-
ly CCCAN, so I have to work more
on my starts, my turns and my sta-
mina as a long distance swimmer."

Caribs record
another win

By RENALDO DORSETT

Sports Reporter
rdorsett@tribunemedia.net

The College of the Bahamas Caribs continued to make
a playoff push and padded their winning record by
recording another win against the league's bottom feed-
ers.

The Caribs placed three scorers in double figures in the
57-44 win over the Sentinel All-Stars Saturday night at
the D.W Davis Gymnasium.

Natiska Silver led the way with a double double, 16
points and 11 rebounds, Gabrielle McKinney also posted
a double double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, while
Shadell Williams finished with 10 points and five
rebounds.

A full balanced scoring effort for the Caribs included
Deandra Williams with eight points, Delesia Mackey with
seven points and eight rebounds, while Alexis Maycock
came off the bench to finish with four points.

Gariece Butler led the All-Stars and was the lone play-
er in double figures with 13 points and 10 rebounds and
two blocks.

Brittany Greenslade added six points and seven
rebounds while Tonya Stubbs added five points and six
rebounds.

The Caribs opened the game on a 10-0 run and shot 5-7
from the field in the game's first two minutes.

They took a 21-8 lead at the end of the first quarter but
the All-Stars would respond.

Led by Butler, who shot 9-13 from the free throw line
the young All-Star squad crawled their way back into the
game and outscored the Caribs 17-9 in the second quar-
ter.

Th Caribs led 30-25 at the half despite shooting just 27
percent from the field, 12 percent from beyond the arch
and 55 percent from the free throw line.

More aggressive on the offensive end of the floor, led
by a stellar defensive effort, the Caribs attempted 44 shots
whole the All-Stars were limited to just 25.

The second half was all Caribs as they outscored the
All-Stars 27-19 in the second half to hold on for the win.

League play continues Tuesday at the D.W Davis Gym-
nasium at 7:30pm

ENGLISH SOCCER ROUND-UP

Blackburn beat West Brom

Blackburn moved provision-

i ally into seventh place in the
i Premier League by beating
i West Bromwich Albion 2-0 on
? Sunday, courtesy of goals in a
? seven-minute spell either side
i of halftime.

A spectacular own goal by

? Romania defender Gabriel
? Tamas put Rovers ahead in the
i 41st minute, and the win was
i secured in the 47th when Cana-
: dian forward David Hoilett
? thumped a 25-yard drive past
? goalkeeper Boaz Myhill for his
i first league goal.

"It means a lot, I've been

i? waiting for it for a long time,"
i said the 20-year-old Hoilett,
i who made his debut for the
? club last year but has only pre-
i viously scored in the cup com-
i petitions.

It was the third home victory

? in a row for Blackburn under
? new manager Steve Kean.

"We knew it was going to be

a tough game, but we really
? stuck at it and I thought we
: were excellent," Kean said.

West Brom, which has now

i lost home and away to Black-
burn in the space of four weeks,
? has won once in seven league
? matches and is only three points
i above the relegation zone.

"At 1-0 down at halftime we

Arsenal is two points behind
United having played a game
more, and a point clear of City.

After a slow start, Blackburn
made most of the running in
the first half and West Brom
was indebted to Myhill for
keeping the score level before
Tamas' gaffe.

The visitors’ only chance
before the break fell to top
scorer Peter Odemwingie, after
just 30 seconds. Norway inter-

sen lost possession in midfield,

Paul Robinson.

Swedish winger Martin Ols-
son and Christopher Samba,
twice, had low shots saved by
Myhill as Blackburn started to
dominate. But the goalkeeper
could do nothing to prevent
Tamas' header flying past him.

United States midfielder Jer-
maine Jones, making his debut
for Rovers following his six-
month loan move from Schalke,
slipped a ball through to David
Dunn, whose angled cross was
powered into his own net by
Tamas from eight yards out.

West Brom has now conced-
ed at least one goal in 21
straight league games.

Hoilett made it 2-0 when he
picked the ball up 35 yards out,
cut inside and unleashed a
swerving effort that powered
through the attempted save of
Myhill for his first Premier
League goal.

West Brom finished the bet-
ter of the sides, with Robinson
saving shots by Jerome Thomas
and Chris Brunt, but Blackburn
had few problems seeing out
the win.

Queens Park Rangers beat
Coventry 2-1 on Sunday to
extend the London team's lead
in the second-tier League
Championship to five points.

Winger Wayne Routledge
scored the winner in his first
game since rejoining QPR on
loan from Premier League side
Newcastle.

Rodgers leads Pack to Super Bowl
they beat Chicago Bears 21-14







(AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)
TOUCHDOWN: Chicago Bears quarterback Caleb Hanie (12) cele-
brates a touchdown with Earl Bennett (80) during the second half of
the NFC Championship NFL football game against the Green Bay
Packers Sunday, Jan. 23, 2011, in Chicago.

CHRIS JENKINS,
AP Sports Writer
CHICAGO

There was one Monster of the Midway in the NFC champi-
onship game and his name was Aaron Rodgers.

He wasn't even at his best and, still, he was better than the
first, the second and the third quarterback used in vain by the
Chicago Bears against their bitter rivals.

Rodgers ran for a score and made a TD-saving tackle in leading
the Green Bay Packers into the Super Bowl with a bone-jarring 21-
14 victory Sunday over Chicago.

"It's an incredible feeling,” Rodgers said. "I'm at a loss for
words.”

Rodgers played well enough to keep the Bears off balance all
afternoon, Green Bay punter Tim Masthay kept Devin Hester
under wraps and the Packers’ superb defense took care of the
rest in knocking the Bears out of the playoffs.

It was the 182nd meeting in the league's most historic feud,
and the stakes had never been bigger.

Now the Packers (13-6) are headed to Dallas. And no matter
what happens in the Super Bowl on Feb. 6, the Packers and their
fans hold ultimate bragging rights over their foes to the south.
Green Bay will play the winner of Sunday night's AFC title game
between the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers.

"We made a play to win the game and that's all that matters,"
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said. "Keep playing defense the
way we know how, and it's going to be tough for teams to beat us."

All Jay Cutler could do was watch, having left the game with a
knee injury early in the third quarter. Even before the injury,
Cutler was having trouble moving the ball. Worse, he was getting
booed by the home fans.

Primary backup Todd Collins replaced Cutler and was jeered
even worse. Then little-known backup Caleb Hanie and the Bears
(12-6) actually made it a game.

Chicago's third-string quarterback rallied the Bears for a touch-
down drive to cut the lead to 14-7 after Chester Taylor's 1-yard
touchdown run early in the fourth quarter.

Hanie had a chance to tie the game after the Bears’ defense final-
ly got a few stops, but threw a ball straight to Packers defensive
lineman B.J. Raji, who lumbered 18 yards into the end zone for a
touchdown to give the Packers a 21-7 lead.

But Hanie wasn't finished. He threw a 35-yard touchdown pass (AP Photo/Kiichiro Sato)

to Earl Bennett to again cut the lead to seven points with 4:43 left. pagg TIME: Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (6) throws a pass as teammate Roberto Garza (63) blocks a Green Bay Packers defend-

second of the game.

Now all those Pro Bowl voters who didn't think Rodgers was
worthy can relax. They're off the hook. Rodgers will be headed to
the Super Bowl instead.

Rodgers proved ready for the biggest day of his brief but impres-
sive career as the successor to Brett Favre, even if his final stat line
didn't look impressive after an ugly, hard-fought game.

He threw for 244 yards with two interceptions — a disappoint-
ment, given how well he had played lately. But his play in the first
half was good enough to put the Bears in a two-touchdown hole,
boggling a good defense that suddenly seemed to fall for every play-
action fake.

Chicago was ready for a championship party under sunny skies
and 20-degree temperatures, and went wild from the national
anthem on. But Rodgers quieted them down quickly, marching the
Packers on an opening drive then ended with Rodgers scram-
bling for a score.

The Bears went with a heavy dose of running back Matt Forte
early on, with limited success.

Early in the second quarter, Brandon Jackson faked Brian
Urlacher out for a long gain on a screen pass, and Rodgers’ pass to
Jordy Nelson set up James Starks’ 4-yard touchdown run to give
Green Bay a 14-0 lead.

It was the latest in a series of big moments for Rodgers, who has
earned near-universal praise for the way he has played this season
— especially since sitting out the Packers’ Dec. 19 loss at New Eng-
land because of a concussion.

Rodgers has been on a hot streak ever since, and doing it under
pressure. The Packers would have been out of the playoffs with a
loss in either of their last two regular-season games, including the

Attorney dies
after shooting



Member of prominent
Bahamian family gunned
down outside law firm

By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
aturnquest@tribunemedia.net

MEMBERS of a promi-
nent Bahamian family in the
religious and legal communi-
ties are trying to make sense
of the fatal shooting of one
of their own this weekend.

Attorney Dennis Gomez,
the brother of Glenn Gomez,
Comptroller of Customs, and
husband of an acting magis-
trate, was gunned down out-
side his law firm early Satur-
day morning.

Police were said to be
actively investigating the ninth
murder victim for the year,
however up to press time
there were no significant
updates in the matter.

Struck multiple times in
the chest — which severely
damaged vital organs — Mr
Gomez died in hospital that
evening shortly after 9pm. He
was 57 years old.

Damien Gomez, attorney
and cousin of the deceased
said: “He was very badly
injured on Friday night and

the doctor didn’t expect him
to live even as long as he did —
too much damage was done
to his heart and to his lungs.”

According to police, Mr
Gomez had just left his law
firm at York Street off Shirley
Street when he was
approached by two men — one
of whom was armed with a
hand gun — shortly before
2am on Saturday.

Police indicated that Mr
Gomez was accompanied by a
woman at the time of the
shooting, however her con-
nection to the victim is
unclear at this time.

Mr Gomez — who was tak-
en to hospital in a private
vehicle — reportedly received
multiple gunshot wounds to
his body after he struggled
with his attackers.

Family members were said
to believe that the shooting
was an “armed robbery gone
bad,” based on existing infor-
mation, however up to press
time police had not yet con-
firmed a motive. Relatives

‘Carpe Diem’ - seize the day, move ahead

THE old proverb advises the tailor to cut his
coat to suit his cloth.

This is sound advise that would be well for
Bahamians to seriously consider. Speaking at
the recent Bahamas Business Outlook 2011
conference a College of the Bahamas associate
professor, warning of “economic apartheid”,
described this country’s economy as the most
oppressive model that fails to empower and
develop Bahamians. She warned of disastrous
consequences if it is retained. To her it is
essentially an economy of service and con-
sumerism. She advises a diversification that
would embrace the genius of the Bahamian
people.

Prime Minister Ingraham also believes in
diversification, as does Tourism Minister Vin-
cent Vanderpool Wallace. But rather than a
shift completely away from tourism, they both
see enormous opportunities for diversifica-
tion within the system. As the Prime Minister
has said this “strong legitimate desire must
be considered in the context of the reality of
The Bahamas.”

Mr Vanderpool Wallace also believes in
“diversification, but not necessarily in diver-
sification that consumes much debate.” Quot-
ing from a sermon by Monsignor Preston
Moss, who in turn was quoting from Steven
Covey, author of “The 7 Habits of Highly
Effective People”, Mr Vanderpool Wallace
advised: “The main thing is to keep the main
thing the main thing.”

Within the context of the Bahamas the
main thing is tourism, which still presents
tremendous opportunities if diversified.

Jamaica, for example, was endowed with
rich natural resources — bauxite, gypsum,
lime, marble, sand, silica. This provided
Jamaica with many and varied opportunities
for diversification.

Not so the Bahamas. Our lot was to inher-
it an archipelagic nation of beautiful islands,
magnificent clear waters, more beaches than
the Caribbean combined, and a comfortable
climate.

The cloth that our administrators were giv-
en to cut was one of beauty. What does one do
with beauty?

The pirates saw it as a group of islands,
among which they could hide and waylay bul-
lion-laden ships headed for Spain. The wreck-
ers took advantage of the shallow waters, and
the shoals just below the surface that brought

TOA ha

ships to a watery grave and prize money to
their tattered pockets. Then came the winter
tourists, escaping the cold blasts of the north.
And then came Stafford Sands who saw an
opportunity to take this same cloth of beau-
ty— sand, sea and balmy weather — and turn
it into a number one, year-round industry.

What both the Prime Minister and Mr Van-
derpool-

Wallace are saying is that there is much for
Bahamians to develop within that industry,
not forgetting, of course, the opportunities
for agriculture and fisheries to feed ourselves
and our visitors.

“If New Providence and Paradise Island,”
said Mr Vanderpool Wallace, “were a separate
country in our region, it would rank fifth in the
number of stopover visitors, second in the
number of total visitors and first in the number
of cruise passengers in the entire Caribbean.”
What others also find surprising, he said, is that
New Providence and Paradise Island, where
nearly 70 per cent of our population resides,
represents less than 2 per cent of the total
land mass of the Bahamas.

Going further he pointed out that these
two islands — only 2 per cent of the total
Bahamas — would be the third wealthiest
independent country in the western hemi-
sphere in terms of per capita income behind
only the United States and Canada. “If fully
developing only 2 per cent of our islands yields
these kinds of results,” he said, “imagine what
could happen if we began to utilise more of
our natural assets?”

Instead the revenue from these two islands
— with the exception of Freeport, possibly
Abaco and Eleuthera — are spread thin to
support the other islands in the archipelago.

If the other islands could be developed,
and made self sufficient with inter-island com-
merce between all of them; if Bahamians set-
tled in the various island to help in their devel-
opment, instead of flocking to New Provi-
dence; if Bahamians living abroad could see
opportunities that would entice them home
to help in the growth of the islands, what a rich
little country this could be.

Yes, there is room for diversification —
much diversification within the sector itself. It
will take a new generation of well educated
Bahamians to seize the day and lead the way.
We are not at a dead end. There is much yet to
be done.



Are the police
trying to fight
crime or armed
terrorists?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

The headlines in The
Guardian and The Tribune
of today’s date, Thursday,
January 20, 2011, as respec-
tively shown above, were, to
say the least, disturbing.

I am at a loss in trying to
figure out what our police
force is attempting to fight,
crime or armed terrorist?

No one can deny the fact
that crime is escalating at an
alarming rate, by the same
token no one can say that
our police force has found
the answers to the problem;
but stooping to the level of
the criminal element respon-
sible for the situation, is
most certainly not the route
to go,

Trigger happy, Wild West
characters.

John Q Public is still reel-
ing under the effects of a
number of incidents of what
could be termed trigger hap-
py officers who, it appears,
seem to think that to shoot
first and ask questions later
are the reason for them
being issued with a weapon.
The tragic loss of an efficient
crime fighter and an out-
standing member of the
Inspectorate some weeks
ago should have beena
wake-up call to the powers
that be to take a second look
at the methods employed in
the issuing of firearms to
police personnel. Persons
entrusted with the use of
firearms must be carefully
screened in the areas of
character, decision making,
observation, patience and
the ability to reason.

Violence begets
Violence

The Holy Scriptures
reminds us that violence
begets violence, if we were
to take a look at the situa-
tion with regards to the drug
war in Mexico, we will find
the following: The govern-
ments decision to declare an

tels is definitely not work-
ing, over thirty plus thou-

been executed, mostly secu-
rity personnel and under
cover officers, in the most
horrible fashion imaginable.
It has also been determined
that the drug dealers were
able to out-gun the security
forces, simply because they
were able to purchase supe-
rior fire power. We have
trigger happy thugs on our
streets with AK47’s, superi-
or to police weapons, The
last thing the police should
want is an all-out shooting
war with criminals on our
streets and in our commu-
nities, as innocent citizens
will become the victims of
such folly.

The police mandate and
priorities are: Preservation
of the peace, protection of
life and property, preven-
tion of crime and the detec-
tion of crime.

Operation Rapid strike,
says the commissioner, has
as its main objective the mis-
sion to seek out persons
involved in murders, armed
robberies, possession of ille-
gal firearms, stealing of vehi-
cles, stabbings, breakings
and all other criminal activ-
ities. If those priorities are
the mission of the individ-
ual officers involved in oper-
ation rapid strike, then
please, Mr Commissioner,
tell us what the duties of the
remainder of the force will
be during the operation of
Rapid Strike; explain to
John Q, what has happened
to the mandate that you and
every other member and his
brother of that institution
known as, and called the
RBPF signed in order to
become a member of that
institution. Viz;- T(1)

To preserve the peace in
this nation, (2) To protect
the life and property of its
citizens, (3) The prevention
of crime and (4) The detec-
tion of crime. My dear com-
missioner they have always
been the primary reasons for
the establishment of that
great institution and will
always be for the retention
of it.

If each and every member
of the force focus on their
mandate and identify the
root cause for the escalation

active investigative brain of
years gone by that are avail-
able to you just for the ask-
ing. No one individual,
including you, has the
answers to our crime prob-
lem; but collectively, we can
find some answers.

The dangers of carrying
out one’s mandate by means
of media exposure.

Many modern day leaders
of institutions, corporations
and indeed politicians, find it
fashionable or convenient to
operate through constant
media exposure, this path is
a dangerous one, for it must
be borne in mind that the
media is a two-edged sword.
Never mind the glowing
terms and the well placed
photos; because when you
stumble, falter or fall, they,
the media are always the
first to deliver the coup de
grace to your hapless car-
cass. In fact advertising in
advance your course of
action only defeats its pur-
pose.

We must all remind our-
selves that crime is a social
disease and must be treated
as such.

It is the responsibility of
all of us to unite in an effort
to find a cure for the illness.
In many cases we as a peo-
ple are responsible for cre-
ating the climate that is
responsible for the disease.
In our system we tend to put
the cart before the horse
when it comes to crime, gov-
ernment is the chief culprit
in this scenario.

The millions of dollars put
into new vehicles to add to
an already congestive traf-
fic problem should be spent
in the rehabilitation system,
after school programmes,
trade school for drop-outs
from school, and problem-
atic youths, while upgrading
the community policing pro-
gramme.

Your job, Mr Commis-
sioner, is not and never was
an easy one, it is a thankless
one; but the nettle of the
captain of a ship is not mea-
sured by how he handles his
ship in calm or good weath-
er; but how he does in a hur-
ricane or rough seas.

An autopsy of all pro-
grammes should be carried
out before implementation,
with a view to identifying
flaws and/or loopholes,
remember the buck stops
with you and so will the

On airlines, tourism and
Caribbean integration

insight

By SIR RONALD
SANDERS

(The writer is a Consul-
tant and former Caribbean
Diplomat).

TOWARD the end of
last year as a row raged
between the Board of
Directors of Caribbean Air-
lines Ltd (CAL), owned by
the government of Trinidad
and Tobago, and the Minis-
ter of Transport, Jack
Warner, alarm was
expressed by several com-
mentators at published
reports in Port-of-Spain
that CAL might not pro-
ceed with plans to finalise a
merger with Air Jamaica by
April 30 this year.

These reports emanated
from conflicting statements
credited to the former CAL
Chief Executive Officer,
Tan Brunton, in which he
had publicly declared him-
self fully in support of the
Air Jamaica merger but had
simultaneously advised the
CAL Board not to consum-
mate the deal.

The cause for alarm was
two-fold: The first was the
effect that failure to com-
plete the Air Jamaica deal
would have on _ the
Jamaican government’s
economic support arrange-
ments with the IMF; and
the second was the irrepara-
ble damage that would have
been done to Caribbean
integration if the Trinidad
and Tobago government
left Jamaica deep in distress

WORLD VIEW -

by reneging on the deal. Dr
Eric Williams’ arithmetical
calculation of “One from
ten leaves nought” that
effectively ended the West
Indies Federation, would
undoubtedly have been
invoked again — this time
by Jamaica.

Reassuringly, since then,
the CAL Board has made
it clear that it is in fact pro-
ceeding with the Air
Jamaica transaction. New
planes have been brought
into service and the reopen-
ing of Air Jamaica flights
to London’s Heathrow Air-
port has been announced.

Merger

Like many others in the
region, who place some
store in a truly regional air-
line to ensure that the
Caribbean Community
(CARICOM) countries
have some measure of inde-
pendence from the vagaries
of foreign carriers, I am
gratified that the merger
between CAL and Air
Jamaica is proceeding and
that Jamaica will own
shares in the merged air-
line.

It is to be hoped that this
is a first step in the direction

of a single regionally-owned
airline that will serve all
CARICOM countries not
only for tourists, but also in
the vital area of moving
Caribbean people and
goods around the region as
the regional integration
process is deepened.

This raises the question
of what happens with the
smaller airline, LIAT,
which is essential to inter-
CARICOM transportation
especially for Caribbean
people. For some countries,
LIAT is, indeed, an “essen-
tial” service, for without it,
these countries — especially
Dominica and St Vincent
and the Grenadines -
would have to rely on small,
private airlines that are
insufficient to service their
tourism needs and their
inter-regional trade.

LIAT is owned by three
governments — Antigua and
Barbuda, Barbados and St
Vincent and the
Grenadines. All three are
strapped for cash and if
LIAT is not profitable year
after year, these govern-
ments will have to dip into
their already depleted Trea-
suries to support the airline.
The prospect of that hap-
pening is not good. But, the

SIR RONALD SANDERS

other governments into
whose countries LIAT flies
have shown no interest in
supporting the airline,
largely because they too
don’t have the financial
resources.

In this regard, a merger
between the new CAL
(including Jamaica) and
LIAT would appear to
make good economic sense,
although CAL’s decision to
purchase French ATR air-
craft instead of the Canadi-
an dash-8’s that LIAT has
traditionally flown would
pose a problem of amalga-
mation.

But, even if that prob-
lem was overcome, the fur-
ther difficulty would be
devising a scheme for oper-
ations and service that
would persuade the gov-
ernments of the countries
now served by LIAT that
they would not be at the

mercy of Trinidad-centred
considerations by CAL.
This will require very care-
ful negotiations, diplomatic
skill, and political resolve
to reach and implement a
workable consensus. How
much of this political
resolve exists at the
moment in CARICOM is a
question to which there is
no easy answer.

The answer is made more
difficult by the recent
announcement by CAL that
it will shortly introduce
flights that will compete
with LIAT on some of its
routes. The response of St
Vincent’s Prime Minister
Ralph Gonsalves to this
announcement is instruc-
tive. He says that he is not
opposed “to any competi-
tion for LIAT, but that
competition must be on a
level playing field.”

His latter point may be
an allusion to the fact that
CAL enjoys the facility of
fuel at a price less than the
market price which LIAT
has to pay. Paying less for
fuel will give CAL an
advantage over LIAT in
one of two ways: either by
allowing it to drop its prices
to customers below LIAT?’s,
and, therefore to grab a
larger market share; or by
maintaining the same price
as LIAT and, thereby,
increasing its revenues mak-
ing it more viable than
LIAT. In either scenario,
LIAT will suffer from
CAL’s competition by hav-
ing to share the customers it
now has.

One possibility that
could give a CAL-LIAT

merger credibility and con-
fidence is the involvement
of the International Finance
Corporation (IFC) as a dis-
interested third party with
experience in these matters.
Such a merger should try to
ensure that the present
owners of LIAT end up
with shares and a voice in
the merged CAL operation.

In the meantime, the peo-
ple of CARICOM com-
plain of the high costs of
travel within the region.

Of course, this is not only
because of the charges by
CAL and LIAT for their
fares, but also because of
the taxes that each govern-
ment charges passengers for
the use of their airports.

There has always been a
need to rationalise air trans-
portation within CARI-
COM in ways that serve
tourism and the movement
of people and goods within
the region. That need has
now become urgent.

Dealing with it requires
empathy among CARI-
COM Heads of Govern-
ment and Ministers of
Transport and a firm
resolve to deal with the
issue in ways that would
result around in a regional
consensus.

Can they do it? Yes they
can, if every effort is made
to put aside narrow chau-
vinism, by balancing it with
the other benefits that
regionalism brings to every-
one’s national development.
But, we shall see.

STAY ONE STEP AHEAD!

By MIKE LIGHTBOURN

AS A seller, you’d prefer a nice
clean, unconditional offer at full
price, right? This, of course,
assumes your home is properly
priced. One way to encourage such
confidence among potential pur-
chasers is to have an inspection
report available during showings,
as well as any receipts (or estimates)
for repairs. Why order an inspection
when the purchasers will probably
do so anyway? Because when you
take the initiative and perform
repairs before listing, you are basi-
cally presenting a clean bill of

health for your home.

Prelisting inspections are becom-
ing a popular way to give vendors
an edge in our competitive market. Taking such



action also provides a great opportunity to take

care of problems that otherwise might come back
to bite you. Purchasers today are armed with

more knowledge than in the past,
and they recognise the security
offered when the vendor is forth-
right and demonstrating that there is
nothing to hide.

These are the conditions that are
more likely to produce that uncon-
ditional offer. While it’s probably a
given that the purchaser’s BREA
agent will encourage them to order
their own inspection if the home is
not in top condition, you also have a
greater sense of confidence know-
ing that there won’t be any surprises.

If you have any doubts about
whether a prelisting inspection will
improve your chances for an early
sale, discuss it with your BREA rep-
resentative, who will also undoubt-
edly have many other suggestions
for successfully marketing your home.

Egypt accuses Gaza militants of
being behind Coptic church bomb

CAIRO
Associated Press

EGYPT'S top security offi-
cial accused an al-Qaida-
inspired group in the Gaza Strip
on Sunday of being behind the
New Year's Day suicide bomb-
ing that killed 21 people out-
side a Coptic Christian church
in the Mediterranean port city
of Alexandria.

Interior Minister Habib al-
Adly said conclusive evidence
showed the shadowy Army of
Islam in the Palestinian terri-
tory was behind the planning
and execution of the attack,
which sparked three days of
Christian rioting in Cairo and
several other cities. It was the
deadliest attack against Chris-
tians in Egypt in more than a
decade.

There has been no claim of
responsibility for the bombing,
which added to years of
strained relations between
Egypt's sizable Coptic minority
and the country's Muslims. The
government, eager to keep the
sectarian tension under control,
almost immediately blamed for-
eign elements for the attack.

The Army of Islam dismissed
Sunday's accusations on an
extremist website, and the
Hamas militants who control
Gaza and have themselves bat-
tled with the smaller group was
also skeptical of the Egyptian
claim.

Al-Adly said the group is
believed to have recruited
Egyptians in the planning and
execution of the attack, but that
this could not conceal the role it
played in the "callous and ter-
rorist” act.

An Interior Ministry state-
ment later identified 26-year-
old Alexandria resident Ahmed
Lotfi Ibrahim as a lead suspect
in the attack, saying he was
recruited by the Army of Islam
when he sneaked across the
border into the Gaza Strip in
2008.

It said operatives from the
Army of Islam tasked him with
monitoring Christian and Jew-
ish places of worship in Alexan-
dria. Last October, the state-
ment said, Ibrahim identified
two churches, including the one
attacked on New Year's Day,
as likely targets and sent his
handlers photographs of the
two.

He was told in December
that "elements" have been sent
to carry out the attack, the
statement said without elabo-
rating.

Security officials said earlier
on Sunday that at least five
Egyptians have been detained
in connection with the Alexan-
dria bombing. They said the
suspects have given investiga-
tors a full account of how they
were contacted and eventually
recruited by the Army of Islam.
It was not immediately clear
whether Ahmed, a university
graduate who subscribed to the

ee

cause of jihad through the
Internet, was one of those
detained.

The officials spoke on con-
dition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to
share the information with the
media.

The Army of Islam is esti-
mated to have several dozen
operatives committed, like al-
Qaida, to the ideas of a global
jihad.

The group seceded from the
Hamas-linked Popular Resis-
tance Committees in 2005 and
currently has no ties with that
group.

In 2008, Hamas unleashed a
deadly crackdown on it, storm-
ing its stronghold and killing 13
of its members and prompting
it to since keep a low profile.

The Army of Islam is
thought to have participated in
the kidnappings of Israeli sol-
dier Sgt. Gilad Schalit in 2006
and BBC journalist Alan John-
ston, who was later released.

Late last year, Israel killed
three members of the group in
separate airstrikes, alleging the
men had planned to attack
Israeli and American targets in
Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

"The Army of Islam in the
land of Ribat (Palestine) denies
the allegation made by the
Egyptian regime about our
relation with the attack in the
city of Alexandria,” it said in
an Internet posting.

Hamas, which has ruled
Gaza since 2007, voiced doubts
and asked Cairo to provide evi-
dence to back up its charge.
"We call on the Egyptian
brothers to provide evidence
and information to the govern-
ment in Gaza about these accu-
sations. We deny the existence
of al-Qaida in the Gaza Strip
and we reaffirm that the Egypt-
ian national security is our
national security,” said Taher
Nunu, Hamas government
spokesman.

Suspicion for the Alexandria
bombing had fallen almost
immediately on some kind of
al-Qaida-linked local organiza-
tion after the terror group's
branch in Iraq vowed to attack
Christians in Iraq and Egypt
over the cases of two Egyptian
Christian women who sought
to convert to Islam. The
women, who were married to
priests in the Coptic Orthodox
Church, were prohibited from
divorcing their husbands and
sought to convert as a way out.

The women have since been
secluded by the Coptic Church,
prompting Islamic hard-liners
in Egypt to accuse the Church
of imprisoning them and forc-
ing them to renounce Islam.
The Church denies the allega-
tion.

and top police officials.

In a separate address,
Mubarak vowed that his gov-
ernment will "triumph over ter-
ror” and that he will do his
utmost to maintain unity
between Egyptians. About 10
percent of Egypt's 80 million
people are Christians.

"T will not be lenient with
any sectarian actions from
either side and will confront
their perpetrators with the
might and decisiveness of the
law," warned Mubarak, Egypt's
ruler of nearly 30 years.

Mubarak also lashed out
against calls made in the West,
including by Pope Benedict
XVI, for the need to protect
the Christians of the Middle
East after the Alexandria
bombing and attacks against
Christians in Iraq.

Israeli inquiry:
Flotilla raid,
blockade legal

JERUSALEM
Associated Press

AN ISRAELI panel on
Sunday cleared the military
and government of any
wrongdoing during last
year's deadly raid on a Gaza-
bound international flotilla,
but the finding appeared
unlikely to repair damage to
Israel's standing.

Nine pro-Palestinian
activists, eight Turkish citi-
zens and a Turkish Ameri-
can, were killed as Israeli
commandos boarded one of
the ships in the flotilla, the
Mavi Marmara, last May 31.
The report said the armed
defense of Israel's maritime
blockade of the Hamas-
ruled coastal strip was justi-
fied under international law.

A wave of international
condemnation of the raid
forced Israel to ease the
blockade.

The incident damaged
relations with Turkey and
led the U.N. chief to order
an international investiga-
tion. Turkey swiftly con-
demned Sunday's report,
saying it was “surprised,
appalled and dismayed."

Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu
praised the inquiry.

"I hope all those who
rushed to judgment against
Israel and its soldiers will
read this report and learn
the truth about what hap-
pened," Netanyahu said.
"The truth is that our sol-
diers were defending our
country — and defending
their very lives."

The nearly 300-page
report echoed an earlier mil-
itary investigation that fault-
ed the planning and execu-
tion of the operation. Even
so, it said the blockade of
Gaza and the raid were legal
and justified.

by Israel on May 31, 2010,

FORMER ISRAELI SUPREME COURT JUSTICE Jacob Turkel heads
a press conference of the Turkel commission, an inquiry set up by
the Israeli Government to investigate the Gaza flotilla raid, in

Jerusalem, Sunday. (AP)

to enforce the naval block-
ade had the regrettable con-
sequences of the loss of
human life and physical
injuries," read the report.
Nonetheless, "the actions
taken were found to be legal
pursuant to the rules of
international law."

The flotilla aimed to bring
attention to the blockade of
Gaza, which Israel imposed
after Hamas militants cap-
tured an Israeli soldier in
2006 and tightened after
Hamas seized control of the
territory the following year.

Israel said the blockade
was needed to prevent
Hamas, an armed group that
has fired thousands of rock-
ets at Israel, from building
up its arsenal. Critics have
noted the blockade did lit-
tle to weaken Hamas or halt
weapons smuggling, while

causing widespread eco-
nomic hardship and short-
ages of foods and other basic
items.

Israeli forces were sent to
commandeer the ships
before dawn after the flotil-
la ignored radio warnings to
turn back and refused an
offer to dock at an Israeli
port and transfer humani-
tarian aid into Gaza over-
land. One of the ships
radioed to the Israelis to "go
back to Auschwitz," accord-
ing to a military recording
cited in the report.

Five small ships were com-
mandeered without incident,
but soldiers rappelling from
helicopters onto the deck of
the Marmara, with some 600
passengers on board, were
attacked by several dozen
activists armed with bars,
slingshots and knives as they

IN THIS MAY 31, 2010 FILE PHOTO the Mavi Marmara ship, the lead boat of a flotilla headed to the
Gaza Strip which was stormed by Israeli naval commandos in a predawn confrontation, sails into the
port of Ashdod, Israel. An Israeli inquiry commission defended the actions of the country's troops dur-
ing last year's deadly raid on a Gaza-bound protest flotilla sailing from Turkey, finding in a report

released Sunday, Jan. 23, 2011, that Israel had not violated international law.

landed on deck one by one,
according to video footage
released by the military.

The Israelis, caught off
guard, were beaten, and
some were thrown onto a
lower deck.

According to Sunday's
report, two soldiers were
shot, apparently with
weapons wrested from the
Israelis.

Both soldiers and activists
have said they acted in self-
defense.

The flotilla was organized
by an Islamic aid group from
Turkey known by the
acronym IHH. Israel banned
THH, which has ties to
Turkey's Islamic-oriented
government, in 2008 because
of alleged ties to Hamas.

Turkey, formerly one of
Israel's closest allies, recalled
its ambassador to Israel after
the incident, and ties
between the former allies
have not recovered.

An official Turkish com-
mission investigating the
incident condemned the
Israeli findings Sunday, say-
ing the blockade amounted
to illegal "collective punish-
ment” of Gaza's 1.5 million
people. It also accused Israel
of using unnecessary and
excessive force.

"Our commission is sur-
prised, appalled and dis-
mayed that the national

inquiry process in Israel has
resulted in the exoneration
of the Israeli armed forces,"
it said.

In New York, U.N.
spokesman Martin Nesirky
said investigators there had
received a copy of the Israeli
report.

"As you know, to help
complete their important
mandate it is essential for
the (U.N.) panel to review
material provided by both
sides, Israel and Turkey," he
said.

Israel was forced by the
outcry to ease the blockade.
Virtually all foods and con-
sumer goods can now enter
Gaza. But restrictions on
many exports and the import
of badly needed construc-
tion goods remain in place.

Israel ordered the official
inquiry two weeks after the
incident.

The commission, headed
by retired Supreme Court
justice Jacob Turkel, includ-
ed four Israeli members and
two international observers
— David Trimble, a Nobel
peace laureate from North-
ern Ireland, and Brig. Gen.
Ken Watkin, Canada's for-
mer chief military prosecu-
tor. All signed off on the
conclusions.

A fifth Israeli participant,
93-year-old international law
expert Shabtai Rosenne,

Ariel Schalit, File/AP

died during the delibera-
tions.

Looking at 133 individual
cases in which soldiers used
force — 16 of them involving
shooting to kill — the com-
mission found soldiers had
acted properly and that their
lives had been in danger.
The soldiers, the report said,
"acted professionally in the
face of extensive and unan-
ticipated violence."

The report was based on
the testimony of Israeli offi-
cials, including the prime
minister, defense minister
and military chief. It also
looked at testimony from
soldiers gathered by the mil-
itary and 1,000 hours of
video footage taken from the
military, the Marmara and
its passengers.

The commission said
activists on board the ship
refused invitations to testi-

Alan Baker, a former legal
adviser to Israel's Foreign
Ministry, said the commit-
tee's makeup gave the report
international credibility, but
the findings would have little
impact on Israel's critics.

"I doubt very much
whether it will make an
impression on those ele-
ments of the international
community who are pushing
the anti-Israel hostility,” he
said.

ing in both himself and Gaye Knowles resigning as directors of
Ameron Oil and Gas, which was incorporated as a Bahamian
IBC on November 28, 2007. It was initially called American Oil
& Gas Resources, before being renamed Ameron on June 10,
2009.

The Ontario Securities Commission, on December 13, 2010,
charged the three Bahamas-based residents, together with four
Canadians - Vadim Tsatskin, Mark Grinshpun, Oded Pasternak
and Allan Walker - with breaching the Canadian state’s secu-
rities laws by offering securities in MX-IV Ltd, a purported
Bahamian limited partnership, to investors.

The Commission alleged that the offering, which had Ameron
Oil and Gas as its issuer, program manager and operator of
MX-IV, was illegal and unauthorised because no prospectus or
offering document was filed with it.

And the regulator claimed that some $615,000 was raised
from the sale of MX-IV units between June 2009-April 2010,
based on alleged fraudulent information from the four Cana-
dians that was “false, inaccurate and misleading”.

The Ontario Securities Commission alleged that among the
false information provided to investors was that wells were in
production; Ameron had a 90 per cent success rate on previous
projects; the return on investment in the MX-IV units would
come within 90 days of investing; and that the net proceeds from
the MX-IV unit sales would be reinvested in new well drilling.

“The directing minds of Ameron knew or ought to have
known that aliases were being used when the MX-IV units
were sold to members of the public by the salespersons, rep-
resentatives or agents of Ameron,” the Ontario Securities
Commission alleged.

“Approximately 19 per cent of the MX-IV investors’ funds
were paid to the Ameron salespersons involved in selling the
MX-IV units to the MX-IV investors. The MX-IV investors
were not informed of this fact.”

Allegation

The only specific allegation made against Mr Howorth and
the Knowles’s are that as officers and directors of Ameron, they
“authorised and permitted” the conduct engaged in. Gaye
Knowles was alleged to be Ameron’s president and chief exec-
utive, while Giorgio Knowles was its secretary. Mr Howorth was
alleged to be the company’s vice-president.

Emphatically denying that the allegations were true against
of the three, Mr Howorth told Tribune Business that Canadi-
an attorneys had been hired to defend them against the Ontario
Securities Commission’s allegations.

“The facts are that I agreed to act as a director for the com-
pany with Mr Gaye Knowles, who was originally approached by
a client to form and manage a Bahamas IBC with that name
[Ameron],” Mr Howorth told this newspaper via e-mail.

“Tt was made clear in writing to the beneficial owner of the
company that any investment transactions carried out in the
name of the company by him or his associates must be approved
by the directors.

“He advised that he had consulted a Canadian lawyer who
had made an application on behalf of the company to the
Canadian Securities Commission to have the company
approved to sell securities in Canada. The client was warned in
writing not to commence any such sales unless and until such
approval was granted.

“Immediately Mr Knowles and I were advised that these
instructions were ignored, we resigned as directors of the com-
pany.”

Mr Howorth added: “I am afraid this is an example of the
client taking matters into his own hands and using an IBC to
hide his illegal actions.

“This should not have any adverse effect on our business, as
we have acted responsibly within the law. The illegal acts took
place outside our control by persons in Canada, none of whom
were authorised to so act by the company.”

changes are necessary to keep
the Bahamas competitive as
a destination for gamblers.

Mr Markantonis’ comments
come after Jamaica’s minis-
ter of tourism, Edmund
Bartlett, spoke to the world’s
media at the recent Caribbean
Marketplace tourism trade
show, which took place in
Montego Bay last week,
about his government’s “casi-
no dream”.

He revealed that Jamaica
intends to grant three casino
licenses this yea,r and is tak-
ing applications for others,
with the expectation that each
casino could bring in $40 mil-
lion in revenue to the Gov-
ernment annually.

Mr Markantonis said he
sees this development as a
“big problem” for the
Bahamas, and a “bigger
issue” than the fact that the
Jamaican government has
also just opened a state-of-
the-art convention centre -
the Caribbean’s largest - in
Montego Bay in the hopes of
gaining a greater share of this
lucrative tourism market that
the Bahamas, and Atlantis
especially, has traditionally
benefited from.

“T do think that will be a
problem for us - I am not
going to hide it. If they do
approve all these mega-resort
casino licenses there, it’s just
more casinos coming right on
our doorstep.

‘RAPID’ NATIONAL ENERGY POLICY ROLL-OUT URGED

FROM page 1B

between the US and the
Bahamas.

With Crowley and
Seaboard Marine, two key
members of the Florida-
Bahamas Shipowners &
Operators Association,
revealing that the increases
will apply to all imports and
exports carried between the
Bahamas and US as of Feb-
ruary 20 this year, Khaalis
Rolle, the Bahamas Cham-
ber of Commerce and
Employers Confederation’s
(BCCEC) chairman, warned
this nation’s economy would
face “serious problems” if
oil prices rose at the same
rate as in 2008.

Crowley and Seaboard
Marine said the move had
been forced by the rising
cost of bunker fuel, which
mirrors oil prices, and had
risen by over $500 per met-
ric ton.

The Journal of Commerce
Online reported: “The two
carriers said they will
increase the bunker sur-
charge $66 on 20-foot equiv-
alent units, $132 on 40-foot
equivalent units and $149 on
all equipment over 40 feet.”

Acknowledging that there
was little the Bahamas could
do to directly influence glob-
al oil prices, Mr Rolle told
Tribune Business that com-
panies and households had
to focus on “ways to man-
age our energy consump-
tion”.

Agreeing with Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham that
rising commodities prices,
especially food and energy,
posed a major threat to the
Bahamian economy’s grad-
ual recovery from recession,
the Chamber chief said that
among ways to mitigate the
impact from oil price

1 | S TAT u S S : \ Histatussin Syrup sine

increases were for the Gov-
ernment to reduce its taxes
on fuel. This the Ingraham
administration is unlikely to
do, given the present fiscal
crisis and Treasury desire to
lay its hands on every cent
of possible revenue, espe-
cially given that fuel taxes
are among just four items
that generate almost 40 per
cent of the Government’s
annual revenues.

But, alternatively, Mr
Rolle called on Bahamian
companies with the cash
means to follow the likes of
Super Value and ‘hedge’
against rising energy and
transportation costs by bulk
buying inventory in advance.
And he urged the Govern-
ment to get on with imple-
menting the National Ener-
gy Policy, arguing it would
provide a ‘road map’ to
reduce this nation’s fossil
fuel dependence.

“There’s not much we can
do to impact oil prices
because they’re outside our
scope of influence, but we
need to find some way to
mitigate and manage what’s
about to take place,” Mr
Rolle told Tribune Business.

“It’s easy for me to say,
but the Government has to
look at the tax structure on
fuel. That’s one area we can
look at.” Yet the Govern-
ment’s tax take actually
increases as fuel prices rise,
thanks to the 7 per cent
Stamp Duty per gallon
imposed on landed fuel,
while it also takes a $1.16
per gallon flat rate tax to
book.

Given that the Govern-
ment is unlikely to accept a
reduced tax take from fuel,
Mr Rolle added: “There has
to be some sort of hedging
that takes place, especially
for companies that are fuel

dependent. We’re already
talking about inflation
derived from food costs, and
that’s a major concern.
Super Value’s intention is
to hedge, and I think that’s a
good strategy. If you have
the capacity to hedge, you'd
better do it. During the last
oil price spike, Super Value
was one of the firms able to
manage it relatively easily
as their strategy focused on
hedging, purchasing in bulk
up front.”

Still, Mr Rolle said many
Bahamian companies, espe-
cially small and medium-
sized businesses that oper-
ated on “a very tight bud-
get”, with “cash in, cash
out”, would find it impossi-
ble to employ a hedging
strategy. And, illustrating
just how much the Bahamas’
was at the mercy of oil spec-
ulators and financial traders,
Mr Rolle recounted being
told that one Alaskan oil
pipeline being taken out of
service for temporary
repairs resulted in a $3
increase in global oil prices,
as speculators pushed
unwarranted concerns about
a drop in global supply.

“There’s no real rhyme or
reason about this,” Mr Rolle
told Tribune Business.
“That’s why it’s important
we've got to go after the
National Energy Policy, and
the Government cannot
delay rolling this out. It is
an imperative, it is a must.

“The Bahamas needs to
start weaning ourselves of
fossil fuels, and even though
the transition is an expen-
sive one, the tragedy lies in
not pursuing this relatively
quickly. I think that’s an
even more expensive propo-
sition. It’s important that the
long awaited and much-
delayed National Energy

Policy has to be implement-
ed and executed.”

The Chamber chairman
said the pace of work on
developing a National Ener-
gy Policy seemed to have
slowed over the last two
years, as global oil prices fell
back down to more normal
levels, the 2008 price shocks
having sparked the Govern-
ment into action.

“We went at kind of a fre-
netic pace initially, because
we were going through a dif-
ficult period of ever-increas-
ing prices, and that has
slowed somewhat because
the storm slowed, but that
storm is forming again,” Mr
Rolle added. “We just need
to find ways to manage our
energy consumption.”

Warning that the
Bahamas was “headed down
the same slippery slope” of
rising oil prices that took it
into one of the worst mod-
ern recessions, he said: “If
the rate of oil price increas-
es becomes steep and large,
we're going to have a serious
problem. I don’t know if
there’s going to be any hope
for recovery.”

Mr Rolle said that with
many Bahamian firms hav-
ing come through one of the
most difficult trading peri-
ods they will ever face, their
ability - and that of their cus-
tomers - to absorb energy
price rises in their cost struc-
ture was limited.

“It’s going to depend on
the individual firm and their
ability to absorb it and pass
it on. If you absorb it, how
long can your business sur-
vive, and if you pass it on
how much more is the con-
sumer going to take, and
what’s that going to do to
your business?” asked Mr
Rolle.

throughout the economy.

“Normally in November
we have staff working one
or two days a week. This will
mean we will need all hands
on deck,” said Mr Markan-
tonis of Atlantis.

He was speaking at a
press conference to official-
ly announce the Bahamas
having won a vote to receive
National Collegiate Athlet-
ic Association (NCAA)
‘exempt status’ last week,
which will attract college
basketball teams to play in
this nation because they will
no longer be subject to sanc-

tions for doing so, and can
see any wins or losses count
towards their season record.

Atlantis, the Ministries of
Tourism and Sports, the
Bahamas Basketball Feder-
ation and others have all
lobbied for the Bahamas to
receive the coveted ‘exempt
status’ for 14 months.

With this achieved, Mr
Markantonis predicted that
the ‘Battle 4 Atlantis’ will
become “the premier pre-
season basketball tourna-
ment” in the NCAA sched-
ule, following in the foot-
steps of “brand name” pre-
season basketball tourna-
ments such as Hawaii’s

Maui Invitational.

The event comes on the
heels of the ‘Battle at
Atlantis’ double-header
tournament on December
18 last year, the success of
which was credited by
Bahamas Basketball Feder-
ation president, Lawrence
Hepburn, with “putting the
Bahamas over the hump”
towards winning the votes
needed to secure the status.

it makes sense to travel with
the family and catch a few
days on top of the basket-
ball and see Nassau,” added
Mr Markantonis.

With cight teams coming
with their officials, friends
and families, Mr Markanto-
nis said this alone could
bring around 1,500 people
to the Bahamas. Add to this
other fans who will pay to
come and stay in Nassau to
see the games, and thou-
sands more are anticipated.

Ballroom

The ballroom, which
Atlantis spent $500,000 con-
verting into an NCAA-reg-
ulation compliant basketball
arena for the 2010 tourna-
ment, will be expanded from
2,500 to 4,500 seats to
accommodate the bigger
annual Thanksgiving events
which are now in the
pipeline, while an additional
ballroom will be converted
into a practice court prior to
the ‘Battle 4 Atlantis’.

Mr Markantonis said
Kerzner International has
received significant interest
already from college bas-
ketball teams who want to
participate in the ‘Battle 4

Atlantis’ this year and going
forward.

“We have numerous
teams speaking to us about
2012, 2013.

“In fact, we are booking
teams even for 2015 now. I
can tell you that as good as
2011 is going to be, you’d be
shocked at what we have
coming in 2012, it’s just a
major line-up. Everyone is
fighting to come to this tour-
nament,” said Mr Markan-
tonis.

“A lot of it is because
besides being the premier
pre-season basketball tour-
nament, it will also be the
richest within the NCAA
guidelines, whether in terms
of scholarships or athletic
department donations or
whatever it is. We have suf-
ficient sponsors that will
help us cover all of these
expenses.

Meanwhile, another boost
could come in the form of
NBA teams coming to play
at the resort’s facilities in the
future.

“Three teams have been
in touch with us. We are
postponing those conversa-
tions for now because we
have one priority at the
moment,” said Mr Markan-
tonis.

Besides the attention the
resort and the Bahamas will
receive directly from those
traveling to the country to
participate in or attend the
tournament, Mr Markanto-
nis said Atlantis is in discus-
sions with “several media
houses” about television
coverage for the event.

“They have come to us to
talk about broadcasting
these games live in the US,
which is how you also attract
top teams,” said Mr
Markantonis.

‘State-of-the-art addition’ to air conditioning industry



1 TTA cn



IN THE PINK: Mark Roberts, Builders Mall owner, and Chris Knowles, owner of AC Depot, pictured
with the Pink Panther at the International Builders show in Orlando, Florida, last week. The Air Conditioning
Depot, a new full-service parts and supplies store is a state-of-the-art addition to Builders Mall on Wulff
Road. Pink Panther is an Owens Corning character that symbolises the company’s insulation line of prod-

ucts that are pink.

THE Air Conditioning
Depot, a new full-service
parts and supplies store locat-
ed at the Builders Mall on
Wulff Road, is a state-of-the-
art addition not to the
Builders Mall family, but to
the air conditioning industry
in The Bahamas.

Having recently attended
the International Builders
Show in Orlando, Florida, the
largest show of its kind, the
partners of Air Conditioning
Depot were able to gain first
hand knowledge of the cur-
rent industry status, as well
as establish relationships with
industry contacts and key
companies.

The AC Depot, as it is
more commonly known,
opened in the summer of
2010, and since then, has
already become a leader in
air conditioning equipment,
parts, and supplies. Specializ-
ing in high SEER equipment,
its energy efficient, economic
Tempstar line is one of its
best-sellers, and making a
name for itself among air con-
ditioning name brands in The

Bahamas. Tempstar is actu-
ally owned by the same par-
ent as Carrier — a well-known,
long-standing air condition-
ing name — and therefore car-
ries with it a history of relia-
bility, efficiency and comfort.
The AC Depot also distrib-
utes the Carrier and Good-
man lines, and prides itself on
the variety of sizes of equip-
ment and their SEER ratings.

For those unsure of what
SEER is, the acronym stands
for Seasonal Energy Efficien-
cy Rating. In simple terms, it
is a Measurement used to
determine how much elec-
tricity (or energy) an air con-
ditioner uses in exchange for
how much cooling it puts out.
The higher the SEER, the less
electricity the AC uses, there-
fore making it less expensive
to run. The caveat here, is
that the initial cost to pur-
chase a high SEER air con-
ditioning is more than your
average, basic, air conditioner,
but the savings over time is
in the neighbourhood of 50
per cent and statistics have
shown that the investment

pays itself back after the first
year. For example, the aver-
age person in The Bahamas
will purchase a 10 SEER unit,
as opposed to a 14, 15 or 16
SEER unit. Most people only
look at the initial cost to pur-
chase and install a unit and
not the cost of operating that
unit. Under current U.S. law,
the minimum SEER rating
permitted is 13 SEER. With a
similar climate to that of
South Florida's, The Bahamas
should implement, at the very
least, a similar standard. The
reason most people do not
purchase high SEER equip-
ment is that they just don't
know that the alternatives
exists. This is another area in
which the Air Conditioning
Depot will make a positive
change and help the environ-
ment.

Beginning this summer, the
AC Depot plans to team up
with BTVI and offer summer
workshops for its students.
They have also started a local
contractor/installer sign-up
programme, in which they
plan to offer informational
sessions on new and cutting
edge equipment and tech-
nologies.

AC Depot not only ser-
vices the air conditioning
industry and its contractors,
but also consumers directly,
with their wide array of prod-
ucts including ductless units,
tools and filters.

est related to sports tourism.

"Events are being estab-
lished, and we are projecting
that sports tourism has the
potential to make a big dent in
the loss of that corporate busi-
ness that our major hotels lost.
We feel very strongly about it,”
Mr Johnson said.

“We are on track, and we are
particularly pleased that Tyrone
[Sawyer, director of sports
tourism at the Ministry of
Tourism] and his team have
made progress with the Min-
istry of Youth and Sports and
the sector, and that we are get-
ting much traction and seeing
signfiicant growth groups result-
ing from sports tourism. And
that's not just to Nassau and
Paradise Island, but to Abaco,

IN THE MATTER OF The Petition of
RONALD BUTTERFIELD

NOTICE

Ronald Butterfield claims to be the owner in fee
simple of the said land free from encumbrances
and has made application to the Supreme Court in
the Commonwealth of The Bahamas under section
3 of the Quieting Titles Act 1959 to have his title to
the said land investigated and the nature and extent
thereof determined and declared in a Certificate of
Title to be granted by the Court in accordance with
the provisions of the said Act.

A plan of the said land may be inspected during
normal office hours in the following places:

a) The Registry of the Supreme Court in the City of
Nassau;

b) The Chambers of J. Michael Saunders, East Bay
Shopping Centre, Nassau, Bahamas, Attorneys for
the Petitioner.

NOTICE is hereby given that any person having



of the opinion that sports-relat-
ed visits to the Bahamas "could
overtake the conventions mar-

ket as a vehicle to bring peo-
ple who ordinarily wouldn’t
travel to the Bahamas on vaca-
tion to the Bahamas”.

He and Mr Johnson, along
with Kerzner International
(Bahamas) president and man-
aging director, George Markan-
tonis, and Bahamas Basketball
Federation president, Lawrence
Hepburn, were speaking at a
press conference on Friday to
discuss the granting of Nation-
al Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion (NCAA)" exempt status"
to the Bahamas, which will
allow college basketball teams
to play in the Bahamas with-
out being subject to sports sanc-
tions, and seeing their wins and
losses added to their school sea-
son record.

The victory, after 14 months
of lobbying, paves the way for
the ‘Battle 4 Atlantis’ eight
team-tournament at Atlantis at
Thanksgiving this year - a major
tourism draw - and, according
to Mr Maynard and others,

"opens up more possibilities”,
helping to "propel our sports
tourism initiative to the next
level”.

"It also opens the door for
us to further penetrate the mar-
ket and try to get other sporting
disciplines to follow suit, and
try to get exempt status as
well...This is a wonderful thing
for the Bahamas overall," said
Mr Maynard.

He added that the Govern-
ment is keen to make good use
of the new national stadium,
set for completion this year,
with any major international
sporting attractions held there
also set to produce spin-off ben-
efits for Bahamian hotels and
other services.

Asked specifically what
sporting events are set to come
to this nation this year, Mr
Sawyer declined to "make
announcements for other peo-
ple", but said there is "quite a
bit on the drawing board" for
2011.

Sports tourism could ‘replace’ convention loss

He mentioned the Tour of
the Bahamas cycling race,
which is due to take place at
the end of this month, organ-
ised by Holowesko Partners, as
one example of such attrac-
tions.

The race draws numerous
cyclists from both the Bahamas
and abroad to participate in the
three-day long event. Mr
Markantonis revealed that
Atlantis also has a "major ten-
nis tournament" planned for
this year, and would love to
work on projects to bring big
sports events to the national
stadium.

He said Kerzner Interna-
tional has been, and will con-
tinue, to lobby for PGA (Pro-
fessional Golfers Association
of America) ‘exempt status’ in
the hope of attracting more
international golfing events to
the Bahamas.

The BBF's president, Mr
Hepburn, calling the newly-
announced NCAA ‘exempt sta-
tus’ a "dream come true" for
the BBF, noted that it will not
only pave the way for Atlantis
to host the ‘Battle 4 Atlantis’,
but for more BBF organised

“Tt hurt my heart to know we
sit right next to the US but we
couldn’t put on a good enough
tournament to attract a crowd
from abroad, as good as a Maui
classic (another major pre-sea-
son basketball tournament held
in Hawaii).

"It was a splended job on
December 18, and I think that
put everything over the hump.
Now I know the Federation is
going to have numerous peo-
ple calling.

“We have already heard
from several big schools. We
are just excited and delighted,”
said Mr Hepburn.

Mr Maynard added that the
Government is set to debate
the Sports Authority Bill in
Parliament, which will estab-
lish a sports authority to "give
you the real mechanism for the
proper development of sports
tourism, and the proper man-
agement and promotion of

Newest economic indicator:

companies buying iPads

DAVID K. RANDALL,
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK

The news last week that
Apple's Steve Jobs is taking a
leave of absence was a big sto-
ry. But something else about
the company got far less atten-
tion and could be even more
important to investors this year.

Corporations "are adding
iPads to their approved device
list at an amazing rate," Peter
Oppenheimer, Apple Inc.'s
chief financial officer, told ana-
lysts Tuesday. Apple's prod-
ucts, more known for their con-
sumer appeal, are now used in
by employees of Wells Fargo,
Archer Daniels Midland,
DuPont and others.

Splurging on $500 iPads is a
sign that the business cycle is
starting to turn and that com-
panies are starting to spend a
record amount of cash they've
accumulated. If the trend is
real, companies will do what
consumers haven't -- spark a
strong economic recovery. That
could push the Standard &
Poor's 500 index to its third
straight year of double-digit
percentage gains. The last time
that happened: the tech-boom
days of the late 1990s.

"You're going to see a big-
ger commitment to growth this
year because companies have
underspent for quite some
time," says Bill Stone, chief
investment strategist at PNC
Asset Management.

Financial, technology and
energy companies are the most
likely to benefit from business
spending, says David Bianco, a
market strategist at Bank of
America. Each group is up
about 3 percent this year, near-
ly one percentage point ahead
of the overall S&P 500. Those
three groups account for nearly
half of index's value.

The continued success of
financial, energy and technol-
ogy stocks would point to a new
stage of this bull market, which
has returned nearly 100 percent
since it began in March 2009.
Consumer discretionary stocks,
the group of hotels, retail stores
and automakers that depend
on consumer spending, outper-
formed the last two years after
being left for dead during the
2008 financial crisis. Those
companies are now lagging the
market, suggesting that the
bounce back from the lows of
the recession is over.

"Consumers don't have the
income growth to sustain a
more rapid pace of spending,”
says Jeffrey Kleintop, a market
strategist at LPL Financial.
Instead, he says, businesses
spending will eventually lead
to a pickup in the jobs market.

Corporate spending on tech-
nology helped IBM Corp. beat
analyst expectations last week.
On Tuesday, IBM said that its 7
percent jump in revenue came
in part from companies in the
US. upgrading their computer

systems. Its stock jumped
almost 4 percent last week.
Energy companies, mean-
while, are leading the market
this year with a 3.4 percent
jump because of higher
demand, a sign of an improving
economy. Oil company Schlum-
berger said Friday profit in the
most recent quarter rose 31 per-
cent. And financial companies
are benefiting from loans to
businesses, a signal that those
companies plan to expand.
JPMorgan said on its earnings
call last week that it added 400
middle-market companies as
new commercial loan cus-

tomers. Bank of America said
Friday that demand for busi-
ness loans stabilized last quar-
ter, while US Bancorp said
Wednesday that all of its com-
mercial loans divisions were
improving, with the exception
of real estate. Financial com-
panies have the added benefit
of being cheap. The price-to-
earnings ratio of the financial
companies in the S&P 500
index averages 11.6, about half
of its historical average. Finan-
cial companies are cheaper than
any other group except for
health care, which costs 11.2
times earnings.

Holytield fails
to answer bell
for fourth
round after
accidental

head butt

HEY went to the
third round and
ended up with a
"No Decision" as

? Sherman 'the Tank’ Williams’
? bid to clinch the World Boxing
: Federation's heavyweight title
: away from Evander "the Real
? Deal" Holyfield on Saturday
? night.

The 12-round main event

? bout dubbed "Redemption in
? America" and carried live on
? Pay-Per-View saw Holyfield
: head butt and throw a couple
short in Melbourne, Australia. } blows behind the head of
: Williams in the first round. That
? resulted in Williams turning up
i the heat in the second round as
: suffered a cut over his left eye.

After taking a series of blows

? and what was called an acci-
} dental head butt, Holyfield was
? bleeding too much that he did-
? n't answer the bell for the
? fourth round as the fight ended
? up in a “no contest" before a
? jammed pack black-tie crowd
? from America’s resort -- The
? Greenbrier’s Colonial Hall --
} in White Sulphur Springs, West
? Virginia.

“T’m back,” said Williams

? who staggered Holyfield at the
: end of the third round with an
? overhand right. “This fight was
i circus: on again, off again. But I
? stayed focused. I hurt him with
? an overhand punch. Let’s bring
: this fight to Atlantis — Holy-
? field-Williams II. I'll take his
? place in Denmark and fight
? Nielson.”

Williams was referring to

? Holyfield's next scheduled bout
? on March 5 against Brian Niel-
? son that is now in jeopardy
i because of his injury.

“T’m cut,” Holyfield said after

: the fight.

“He head-butted me. He came

? down on me with his head. I
? don’t know about my next fight
? (March 5 vs. Brian Nielson in
? Denmark). I’m cut, I’m cut. I'll

THE TANK VS HOLYFIELD

from Grand Bahama topped
the scale at

258 pounds, compared to the
6-21/2 Holyfield from Atlanta,
Georgia, who came in at 224
after his eight round decision
over Francois Botha to clinch
the WBF title on April 10.

“T’ve had my own personal
setbacks. To get over what I
did was a miracle. I trained
hard for this fight. I was fighting
a legend and I can’t take any-
thing away from him. I feel like
I should have won by TKO. I
cut him with an overhand right,
but I respect him," Williams
said.

As a youngster growing up,
38-year-old Williams said he
idolized Holyfield, but never
envisioned fighting the 48-year-
old former three-time world
champion.

“T root for him. He’s almost
50 and still training and per-
forming. I admire what he’s
done but it’s time to let younger
guys fight and older guys do
television commentary,"
Williams quipped.

"He’s not as good looking as
I am. You’ve made sacrifices,
won 4 world championships

RAY Minus Jr. was impressed with

? what he saw as his Champion Boxing
i Club opened their 2011 season with
i their first amateur boxing show on
? Saturday night at the Wulff Road Box-
? ing Center.

So was national amateur boxing

coach Andre Seymour, who brought
one of his competitors from his
Carmichael Knockout Boxing Club
to participate against one of Minus’
Champion Boxing Club competitor.

"This is great. This is a good evel-
opment programme. Ray is doing a
great job," Seymour said.

"He is working with the kids in the
inner city. These kids have natural tal-
ent.

"We just have to continue to work

with them because if we can do that,
we will have al ot more boxers coming
up.

“But in years to come, we don't
want them to drift away. So we have
to keep the talent and groom them
for international tournaments.”

Seymour said he hope to support
more of Minus’ shows in the future
with more of his boxing coming from
the Carmichael Road area to take on
the boxers from the Kemp Road area.

In the only mixed match of the
night, Malik Lungrin, representing
Seymour's Knockout Boxing Club,
took on Tavaris Deveaux from Minus’

Champion Boxing Club. With the
home crowd cheering him on,
Deveaux was able to out-punch Lun-

Attorney Dennis Gomez, the brother of Glenn Gomez, Comptroller of Customs, and husband of an acting magistrate, was gunned down outside his law firm early Saturday morning. Police were said to be actively investigating the ninth murder victim for the year, however up to press time there were no significant updates in the matter.

Damien Gomez, attorney and cousin of the deceased said: He was very badly injured on Friday night and the doctor didnt expect him to live even as long as he did too much damage was done to his heart and to his lungs. According to police, Mr Gomez had just left his law firm at York Street off Shirley Street when he was approached by two men one of whom was armed with a hand gun shortly before 2am on Saturday. Police indicated that Mr Gomez was accompanied by a woman at the time of the shooting, however her con nection to the victim is unclear at this time. Mr Gomez who was taken to hospital in a private vehicle reportedly received multiple gunshot wounds to his body after he struggled with his attackers. Family members were said to believe that the shooting was an armed robbery gone bad, based on existing information, however up to press time police had not yet confirmed a motive.

No one can deny the fact t hat crime is escalating at an a larming rate, by the same token no one can say that our police force has found t he answers to the problem; b ut stooping to the level of the criminal element responsible for the situation, ism ost certainly not the route to go. Trigger happy, Wild West characters. John Q Public is still reeli ng under the effects of a number of incidents of what c ould be termed trigger happy officers who, it appears, seem to think that to shoot first and ask questions later a re the reason for them b eing issued with a weapon. T he tragic loss of an efficient crime fighter and an outstanding member of the I nspectorate some weeks ago should have been a wake-up call to the powers that be to take a second look at the methods employed in the issuing of firearms to police personnel. Persons entrusted with the use of firearms must be carefully screened in the areas of character, decision making, observation, patience and the ability to reason. Violence begets V iolence T he Holy Scriptures reminds us that violence begets violence, if we were to take a look at the situa tion with regards to the drug war in Mexico, we will find the following: The governments decision to declare an all-out war on the drug cartels is definitely not working, over thirty plus thou sand persons have so far been executed, mostly secur ity personnel and under cover officers, in the most h orrible fashion imaginable. It has also been determined that the drug dealers werea ble to out-gun the security forces, simply because they were able to purchase superior fire power. We have trigger happy thugs on ours treets with AK47s, superior to police weapons, The last thing the police shouldw ant is an all-out shooting war with criminals on our s treets and in our communities, as innocent citizens will become the victims ofs uch folly. The police mandate and p riorities are: Preservation of the peace, protection of l ife and property, prevention of crime and the detection of crime. O peration Rapid strike, says the commissioner, has as its main objective the mission to seek out persons involved in murders, armedr obberies, possession of illegal firearms, stealing of vehicles, stabbings, breakings and all other criminal activities. If those priorities are the mission of the individ u al officers involved in operation rapid strike, then p lease, Mr Commissioner, tell us what the duties of the remainder of the force willb e during the operation of Rapid Strike; explain to John Q, what has happened to the mandate that you and every other member and hisb rother of that institution known as, and called the RBPF signed in order to become a member of that institution. Viz;T(1 T o preserve the peace in this nation, (2 the life and property of its citizens, (3 of crime and (4 tion of crime. My dear commissioner they have always been the primary reasons for the establishment of that great institution and will always be for the retention of it. If each and every member of the force focus on their mandate and identify the root cause for the escalation of offences in certain areas and collectively seek solu tions, it would be a step in the right direction. Out here, resting in the shade of retire ment, are many a sharp and a ctive investigative brain of years gone by that are available to you just for the asking. No one individual, including you, has the answers to our crime prob-l em; but collectively, we can find some answers. The dangers of carrying o ut ones mandate by means o f media exposure. Many modern day leaders o f institutions, corporations and indeed politicians, find it fashionable or convenient to operate through constant media exposure, this path is a dangerous one, for it must b e borne in mind that the m edia is a two-edged sword. N ever mind the glowing t erms and the well placed photos; because when you s tumble, falter or fall, they, the media are always the first to deliver the coup de g race to your hapless carcass. In fact advertising in advance your course ofa ction only defeats its pur pose. W e must all remind ourselves that crime is a social disease and must be treated as such. I t is the responsibility of all of us to unite in an effort to find a cure for the illness. In many cases we as a people are responsible for creating the climate that is r esponsible for the disease. In our system we tend to put the cart before the horse when it comes to crime, gove rnment is the chief culprit in this scenario. The millions of dollars put into new vehicles to add to an already congestive traffic problem should be spent in the rehabilitation system, after school programmes, trade school for drop-outs from school, and problem atic youths, while upgrading the community policing pro gramme. Your job, Mr Commissioner, is not and never was an easy one, it is a thankless one; but the nettle of the captain of a ship is not measured by how he handles his ship in calm or good weather; but how he does in a hurricane or rough seas. An autopsy of all pro grammes should be carried out before implementation, with a view to identifying flaws and/or loopholes, remember the buck stops with you and so will the blame.

This is sound advise that would be well for Bahamians to seriously consider. Speaking at the recent Bahamas Business Outlook 2011c onference a College of the Bahamas associate professor, warning of economic apartheid,d escribed this countrys economy as the most oppressive model that fails to empower and d evelop Bahamians. She warned of disastrous consequences if it is retained. To her it is essentially an economy of service and cons umerism. She advises a diversification that would embrace the genius of the Bahamian p eople. Prime Minister Ingraham also believes in d iversification, as does Tourism Minister Vincent Vanderpool Wallace. But rather than a shift completely away from tourism, they both see enormous opportunities for diversification within the system. As the Prime Minister h as said this strong legitimate desire must be considered in the context of the reality of T he Bahamas. Mr Vanderpool Wallace also believes in diversification, but not necessarily in diversification that consumes much debate. Quot ing from a sermon by Monsignor Preston Moss, who in turn was quoting from Steven Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, Mr Vanderpool Wallace advised: The main thing is to keep the maint hing the main thing. Within the context of the Bahamas the m ain thing is tourism, which still presents tremendous opportunities if diversified. Jamaica, for example, was endowed with rich natural resources bauxite, gypsum, lime, marble, sand, silica. This provided Jamaica with many and varied opportunities for diversification. Not so the Bahamas. Our lot was to inherit an archipelagic nation of beautiful islands, m agnificent clear waters, more beaches than the Caribbean combined, and a comfortable climate. The cloth that our administrators were giv en to cut was one of beauty. What does one do with beauty? The pirates saw it as a group of islands, a mong which they could hide and waylay bullion-laden ships headed for Spain. The wrecke rs took advantage of the shallow waters, and the shoals just below the surface that brought s hips to a watery grave and prize money to their tattered pockets. Then came the winter tourists, escaping the cold blasts of the north. And then came Stafford Sands who saw an opportunity to take this same cloth of beau t y sand, sea and balmy weather and turn it into a number one, year-round industry. W hat both the Prime Minister and Mr VanderpoolW allace are saying is that there is much for Bahamians to develop within that industry, not forgetting, of course, the opportunities f or agriculture and fisheries to feed ourselves and our visitors. If New Providence and Paradise Island, said Mr Vanderpool Wallace, were a separate c ountry in our region, it would rank fifth in the number of stopover visitors, second in the number of total visitors and first in the number of cruise passengers in the entire Caribbean. What others also find surprising, he said, is that N ew Providence and Paradise Island, where nearly 70 per cent of our population resides, r epresents less than 2 per cent of the total land mass of the Bahamas. G oing further he pointed out that these two islands only 2 per cent of the total Bahamas would be the third wealthiest independent country in the western hemi sphere in terms of per capita income behind only the United States and Canada. If fully developing only 2 per cent of our islands yieldst hese kinds of results, he said, imagine what could happen if we began to utilise more of o ur natural assets? Instead the revenue from these two islands with the exception of Freeport, possibly Abaco and Eleuthera are spread thin to support the other islands in the archipelago. If the other islands could be developed, and made self sufficient with inter-island commerce between all of them; if Bahamians settled in the various island to help in their develo pment, instead of flocking to New Providence; if Bahamians living abroad could see opportunities that would entice them home to help in the growth of the islands, what a rich little country this could be. Yes, there is room for diversification much diversification within the sector itself. It w ill take a new generation of well educated Bahamians to seize the day and lead the way. W e are not at a dead end. There is much yet to be done.

By SIR RONALD SANDERS ( The writer is a Consultant and former Caribbean Diplomat ). TOWARD the end of l ast year as a row raged between the Board of Directors of Caribbean Airlines Ltd (CAL t he government of Trinidad and Tobago, and the Minister of Transport, Jack W arner, alarm was e xpressed by several comm entators at published r eports in Port-of-Spain t hat CAL might not proc eed with plans to finalise a merger with Air Jamaica by April 30 this year. These reports emanated from conflicting statements credited to the former CAL Chief Executive Officer, I an Brunton, in which he h ad publicly declared himself fully in support of the A ir Jamaica merger but had s imultaneously advised the C AL Board not to consummate the deal. The cause for alarm was t wo-fold: The first was the effect that failure to complete the Air Jamaica deal would have on the Jamaican governments economic support arrange ments with the IMF; and the second was the irrepara-b le damage that would have been done to Caribbean integration if the Trinidada nd Tobago government left Jamaica deep in distress b y reneging on the deal. Dr Eric Williams arithmetical calculation of One from ten leaves nought that e ffectively ended the West Indies Federation, would undoubtedly have been i nvoked again this time b y Jamaica. R eassuringly, since then, t he CAL Board has made i t clear that it is in fact proc eeding with the Air Jamaica transaction. New planes have been brought into service and the reopening of Air Jamaica flightst o Londons Heathrow Airport has been announced. Mer ger Like many others in the region, who place some store in a truly regional airline to ensure that the Caribbean Community (CARICOM have some measure of independence from the vagaries of foreign carriers, I am g ratified that the merger b etween CAL and Air Jamaica is proceeding and that Jamaica will owns hares in the merged airline. It is to be hoped that this is a first step in the direction o f a single regionally-owned airline that will serve all CARICOM countries not only for tourists, but also in t he vital area of moving Caribbean people and goods around the region as t he regional integration p rocess is deepened. T his raises the question o f what happens with the s maller airline, LIAT, w hich is essential to interCARICOM transportation especially for Caribbean people. For some countries, LIAT is, indeed, an essen-t ial service, for without it, these countries especially D ominica and St Vincent and the Grenadines would have to rely on small, p rivate airlines that are insufficient to service their t ourism needs and their inter-regional trade. LIAT is owned by three g overnments Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados and St V incent and the Grenadines. All three are strapped for cash and if LIAT is not profitable year after year, these govern m ents will have to dip into their already depleted Treasuries to support the airline. The prospect of that hap p ening is not good. But, the other governments into whose countries LIAT flies have shown no interest in s upporting the airline, l argely because they too dont have the financial r esources. In this regard, a merger b etween the new CAL (including Jamaica LIAT would appear to m ake good economic sense, although CALs decision to p urchase French ATR aircraft instead of the Canadian dash-8s that LIAT hast raditionally flown would pose a problem of amalgam ation. But, even if that problem was overcome, the fur-t her difficulty would be devising a scheme for operations and service that would persuade the gov e rnments of the countries n ow served by LIAT that they would not be at the mercy of Trinidad-centred considerations by CAL. This will require very careful negotiations, diplomatic s kill, and political resolve t o reach and implement a w orkable consensus. How much of this politicalr esolve exists at the moment in CARICOM is a q uestion to which there is n o easy answer. T he answer is made more difficult by the recenta nnouncement by CAL that i t will shortly introduce flights that will compete with LIAT on some of its routes. The response of St Vincents Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves to this announcement is instruct ive. He says that he is not o pposed to any competi t ion for LIAT, but that c ompetition must be on a l evel playing field. H is latter point may be an allusion to the fact that CAL enjoys the facility of fuel at a price less than the market price which LIAT has to pay. Paying less for fuel will give CAL an a dvantage over LIAT in one of two ways: either by allowing it to drop its prices t o customers below LIATs, a nd, therefore to grab a l arger market share; or by maintaining the same price as LIAT and, thereby,i ncreasing its revenues mak ing it more viable than LIAT. In either scenario, LIAT will suffer fromC ALs competition by hav ing to share the customers it now has. One possibility that c ould give a CAL-LIAT merger credibility and confidence is the involvement of the International Finance Corporation (IFC i nterested third party with e xperience in these matters. S uch a merger should try to ensure that the presento wners of LIAT end up with shares and a voice in t he merged CAL operation. I n the meantime, the peop le of CARICOM complain of the high costs oft ravel within the region. O f course, this is not only because of the charges by CAL and LIAT for their fares, but also because of the taxes that each government charges passengers for the use of their airports. T here has always been a n eed to rationalise air trans p ortation within CARIC OM in ways that serve t ourism and the movement o f people and goods within the region. That need has now become urgent. Dealing with it requires empathy among CARICOM Heads of Government and Ministers of T ransport and a firm resolve to deal with the issue in ways that would r esult around in a regional c onsensus. C an they do it? Yes they can, if every effort is made to put aside narrow chau-v inism, by balancing it with the other benefits that regionalism brings to everyones national development.B ut, we shall see.

This, of course, assumes your home is properly priced. One way to encourage such confidence among potential pur chasers is to have an inspection report available during showings, as well as any receipts (or estimates for repairs. Why order an inspection when the purchasers will probably do so anyway? Because when you take the initiative and perform repairs before listing, you are basi cally presenting a clean bill of health for your home. Prelisting inspections are becom ing a popular way to give vendors an edge in our competitive market. Taking such action also provides a great opportunity to take care of problems that otherwise might come back to bite you. Purchasers today are armed with more knowledge than in the past, and they recognise the security offered when the vendor is forth right and demonstrating that there is nothing to hide. These are the conditions that are more likely to produce that uncon ditional offer. While its probably a given that the purchasers BREA agent will encourage them to order their own inspection if the home is not in top condition, you also have a greater sense of confidence knowi ng that there wont be any surprises. If you have any doubts about whether a prelisting inspection will improve your chances for an early sale, discuss it with your BREA representative, who will also undoubtedly have many other suggestions for successfully marketing your home.

CAIRO Associated Press EGYPT'Stop security official accused an al-Qaidai nspired group in the Gaza Strip on Sunday of being behind the New Year's Day suicide bombing that killed 21 people outside a Coptic Christian church in the Mediterranean port city of Alexandria. Interior Minister Habib alAdly said conclusive evidence s howed the shadowy Army of Islam in the Palestinian territory was behind the planning and execution of the attack, which sparked three days of Christian rioting in Cairo and several other cities. It was the deadliest attack against Christians in Egypt in more than a d ecade. There has been no claim of responsibility for the bombing,which added to years of strained relations between Egypt's sizable Coptic minority and the country's Muslims. The government, eager to keep the sectarian tension under control, almost immediately blamed foreign elements for the attack. The Army of Islam dismissed Sunday's accusations on an extremist website, and the Hamas militants who control Gaza and have themselves battled with the smaller group was a lso skeptical of the Egyptian claim. Al-Adly said the group is believed to have recruited Egyptians in the planning and execution of the attack, but that this could not conceal the role it played in the "callous and terrorist" act. A n Interior Ministry statement later identified 26-yearold Alexandria resident Ahmed Lotfi Ibrahim as a lead suspect in the attack, saying he was recruited by the Army of Islam when he sneaked across theborder into the Gaza Strip in 2008. I t said operatives from the Army of Islam tasked him with monitoring Christian and Jew ish places of worship in Alexan dria. Last October, the statement said, Ibrahim identified two churches, including the one attacked on New Year's Day,as likely targets and sent his h andlers photographs of the two. He was told in December that "elements" have been sent to carry out the attack, the statement said without elabo rating. Security officials said earlier on Sunday that at least five Egyptians have been detainedin connection with the Alexandria bombing. They said the suspects have given investigators a full account of how they were contacted and eventually recruited by the Army of Islam. It was not immediately clear whether Ahmed, a university graduate who subscribed to the cause of jihad through the Internet, was one of those detained. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to share the information with the media. The Army of Islam is estimated to have several dozen operatives committed, like alQaida, to the ideas of a global jihad. The group seceded from the Hamas-linked Popular Resistance Committees in 2005 and currently has no ties with that group. In 2008, Hamas unleashed a deadly crackdown on it, storming its stronghold and killing 13 of its members and prompting it to since keep a low profile. The Army of Islam is thought to have participated in the kidnappings of Israeli soldier Sgt. Gilad Schalit in 2006 and BBC journalist Alan Johnston, who was later released. Late last year, Israel killed three members of the group in separate airstrikes, alleging the men had planned to attack Israeli and American targets in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula. "The Army of Islam in the land of Ribat (Palestine the allegation made by the Egyptian regime about our relation with the attack in the city of Alexandria," it said in an Internet posting. Hamas, which has ruled Gaza since 2007, voiced doubts and asked Cairo to provide evidence to back up its charge. "We call on the Egyptian brothers to provide evidence and information to the government in Gaza about these accusations. We deny the existence of al-Qaida in the Gaza Strip and we reaffirm that the Egypt ian national security is our national security," said Taher Nunu, Hamas government spokesman. Suspicion for the Alexandria bombing had fallen almost immediately on some kind of al-Qaida-linked local organiza tion after the terror group's branch in Iraq vowed to attack Christians in Iraq and Egypt over the cases of two Egyptian Christian women who sought to convert to Islam. The women, who were married to priests in the Coptic Orthodox Church, were prohibited from divorcing their husbands and sought to convert as a way out. The women have since been secluded by the Coptic Church, prompting Islamic hard-liners in Egypt to accuse the Church of imprisoning them and forcing them to renounce Islam. The Church denies the allega tion. Al-Adly's announcement came in an address he deliv ered during a ceremony marking Police Day that was attended by President Hosni Mubarak, Cabinet ministers and top police officials. In a separate address, Mubarak vowed that his government will "triumph over terror" and that he will do his utmost to maintain unity between Egyptians. About 10 percent of Egypt's 80 million people are Christians. "I will not be lenient with any sectarian actions from either side and will confront their perpetrators with the might and decisiveness of the law," warned Mubarak, Egypt's ruler of nearly 30 years. Mubarak also lashed out against calls made in the West, including by Pope Benedict XVI, for the need to protect the Christians of the Middle East after the Alexandria bombing and attacks against Christians in Iraq.

JERUSALEM Associated Press AN ISRAELIpanel on S unday cleared the military and government of any wrongdoing during last year's deadly raid on a Gazab ound international flotilla, but the finding appeared unlikely to repair damage to I srael's standing. N ine pro-Palestinian a ctivists, eight Turkish citizens and a Turkish Ameri-c an, were killed as Israeli c ommandos boarded one of the ships in the flotilla, the M avi Marmara, last May 31. The report said the armed defense of Israel's maritimeb lockade of the Hamasruled coastal strip was justified under international law. A wave of international condemnation of the raid forced Israel to ease the blockade. T he incident damaged r elations with Turkey and l ed the U.N. chief to order an international investiga-t ion. Turkey swiftly cond emned Sunday's report, saying it was "surprised, appalled and dismayed." I sraeli Prime Minister B enjamin Netanyahu praised the inquiry. "I hope all those who r ushed to judgment against Israel and its soldiers will read this report and learn the truth about what hap p ened," Netanyahu said. "The truth is that our soldiers were defending our country and defendingt heir very lives." The nearly 300-page report echoed an earlier mil i tary investigation that faulte d the planning and execu tion of the operation. Even so, it said the blockade of Gaza and the raid were legala nd justified. "The actions carried out by Israel on May 31, 2010, to enforce the naval blockade had the regrettable con sequences of the loss of h uman life and physical injuries," read the report. Nonetheless, "the actions taken were found to be legalp ursuant to the rules of i nternational law." The flotilla aimed to bring attention to the blockade ofG aza, which Israel imposed after Hamas militants cap tured an Israeli soldier in 2006 and tightened afterH amas seized control of the territory the following year. Israel said the blockade was needed to preventH amas, an armed group that has fired thousands of rock ets at Israel, from building u p its arsenal. Critics have n oted the blockade did lit tle to weaken Hamas or halt weapons smuggling, while causing widespread economic hardship and short ages of foods and other basic i tems. Israeli forces were sent to commandeer the ships before dawn after the flotil l a ignored radio warnings to t urn back and refused an offer to dock at an Israeli port and transfer humani-t arian aid into Gaza over land. One of the ships radioed to the Israelis to "go back to Auschwitz," accord i ng to a military recording cited in the report. Five small ships were com mandeered without incident, b ut soldiers rappelling from helicopters onto the deck of the Marmara, with some 600p assengers on board, were a ttacked by several dozen activists armed with bars, slingshots and knives as they landed on deck one by one, according to video footager eleased by the military. The Israelis, caught off guard, were beaten, and some were thrown onto a l ower deck. According to Sunday's report, two soldiers were s hot, apparently with w eapons wrested from the I sraelis. Both soldiers and activists h ave said they acted in selfd efense. The flotilla was organized by an Islamic aid group from Turkey known by thea cronym IHH. Israel banned IHH, which has ties to Turkey's Islamic-orientedg overnment, in 2008 because o f alleged ties to Hamas. Turkey, formerly one of Israel's closest allies, recalledi ts ambassador to Israel after the incident, and ties between the former allies have not recovered. A n official Turkish comm ission investigating the incident condemned theI sraeli findings Sunday, sayi ng the blockade amounted to illegal "collective punish ment" of Gaza's 1.5 million people. It also accused Israelo f using unnecessary and excessive force. "Our commission is sur prised, appalled and dis mayed that the national inquiry process in Israel has resulted in the exonerationo f the Israeli armed forces," it said. In New York, U.N. spokesman Martin Nesirky s aid investigators there had received a copy of the Israeli report. As you know, to help c omplete their important m andate it is essential for the (U.N.m aterial provided by both s ides, Israel and Turkey," he said. Israel was forced by the outcry to ease the blockade.V irtually all foods and con sumer goods can now enter Gaza. But restrictions onm any exports and the import o f badly needed construction goods remain in place. Israel ordered the official i nquiry two weeks after the incident. The commission, headed by retired Supreme Courtj ustice Jacob Turkel, include d four Israeli members and two international observers David Trimble, a Nobel p eace laureate from North ern Ireland, and Brig. Gen. Ken Watkin, Canada's for mer chief military prosecu t or. All signed off on the conclusions. A fifth Israeli participant, 93-year-old international law expert Shabtai Rosenne, died during the deliberations. L ooking at 133 individual cases in which soldiers used force 16 of them involving shooting to kill the comm ission found soldiers had acted properly and that their lives had been in danger. T he soldiers, the report said, acted professionally in the f ace of extensive and unanticipated violence." T he report was based on t he testimony of Israeli officials, including the prime minister, defense minister and military chief. It alsol ooked at testimony from soldiers gathered by the military and 1,000 hours ofv ideo footage taken from the m ilitary, the Marmara and its passengers. The commission said a ctivists on board the ship refused invitations to testify. Alan Baker, a former legal a dviser to Israel's Foreign M inistry, said the commit tee's makeup gave the report i nternational credibility, but t he findings would have little impact on Israel's critics. "I doubt very much whether it will make ani mpression on those elements of the international community who are pushing the anti-Israel hostility," he said.

It was initially called American Oil& Gas Resources, before being renamed Ameron on June 10, 2009. The Ontario Securities Commission, on December 13, 2010, charged the three Bahamas-based residents, together with four Canadians Vadim Tsatskin, Mark Grinshpun, Oded Pasternak and Allan Walker with breaching the Canadian states securities laws by offering securities in MX-IV Ltd, a purported Bahamian limited partnership, to investors. The Commission alleged that the offering, which had Ameron Oil and Gas as its issuer, program manager and operator of MX-IV, was illegal and unauthorised because no prospectus or offering document was filed with it. And the regulator claimed that some $615,000 was raised from the sale of MX-IV units between June 2009-April 2010, based on alleged fraudulent information from the four Canadians that was false, inaccurate and misleading. The Ontario Securities Commission alleged that among the false information provided to investors was that wells were in production; Ameron had a 90 per cent success rate on previous projects; the return on investment in the MX-IV units would come within 90 days of investing; and that the net proceeds from the MX-IV unit sales would be reinvested in new well drilling. The directing minds of Ameron knew or ought to have known that aliases were being used when the MX-IV units were sold to members of the public by the salespersons, representatives or agents of Ameron, the Ontario Securities Commission alleged. Approximately 19 per cent of the MX-IV investors funds were paid to the Ameron salespersons involved in selling the MX-IV units to the MX-IV investors. The MX-IV investors were not informed of this fact. Allegation The only specific allegation made against Mr Howorth and the Knowless are that as officers and directors of Ameron, they authorised and permitted the conduct engaged in. Gaye Knowles was alleged to be Amerons president and chief executive, while Giorgio Knowles was its secretary. Mr Howorth was alleged to be the companys vice-president. Emphatically denying that the allegations were true against of the three, Mr Howorth told Tribune Business that Canadian attorneys had been hired to defend them against the Ontario Securities Commissions allegations. The facts are that I agreed to act as a director for the company with Mr Gaye Knowles, who was originally approached by a client to form and manage a Bahamas IBC with that name [Ameron], Mr Howorth told this newspaper via e-mail. It was made clear in writing to the beneficial owner of the company that any investment transactions carried out in the name of the company by him or his associates must be approved by the directors. He advised that he had consulted a Canadian lawyer who had made an application on behalf of the company to the Canadian Securities Commission to have the company approved to sell securities in Canada. The client was warned in writing not to commence any such sales unless and until such approval was granted. Immediately Mr Knowles and I were advised that these instructions were ignored, we resigned as directors of the company. Mr Howorth added: I am afraid this is an example of the client taking matters into his own hands and using an IBC to hide his illegal actions. This should not have any adverse effect on our business, as we have acted responsibly within the law. The illegal acts took place outside our control by persons in Canada, none of whom were authorised to so act by the company. Bahamas r esidents deny all allegations over $615k fraud FROM page 1B

recommendations were proc edural (and p roviding all the more reason w hy their consideration and implementation could have moved ahead more swiftly. Meanwhile, Vincent Vanderpool-Wallace, minister of tourism and aviation, told Tribune Business he was now in possession of the final recommendations for reform of the Bahamas gaming laws and regulations, and hoped to present them to the industry next month. In an e-mailed response to this newspaper, he said: I had the final review of the recommendations from the Gaming group with me, and hope to present it for consideration next month. I am not sure how long it will take to change regulations to effect whatever is agreed, but we will advance it as quickly as possible." Mr Markantonis and other industry chiefs say the changes are necessary to keep the Bahamas competitive as a destination for gamblers. Mr Markantonis comments come after Jamaicas minister of tourism, Edmund Bartlett, spoke to the worlds media at the recent Caribbean Marketplace tourism trade show, which took place in Montego Bay last week, about his governments casino dream. He revealed that Jamaica intends to grant three casino licenses this yea,r and is taking applications for others, with the expectation that each casino could bring in $40 million in revenue to the Government annually. Mr Markantonis said he sees this development as a big problem for the Bahamas, and a bigger issue than the fact that the Jamaican government has also just opened a state-ofthe-art convention centre t he Caribbeans largest in M ontego Bay in the hopes of g aining a greater share of this lucrative tourism market that the Bahamas, and Atlantis especially, has traditionally benefited from. I do think that will be a problem for us I am notg oing to hide it. If they do approve all these mega-resort casino licenses there, its just more casinos coming right on our doorstep. We have to keep working on the gaming regulations we have here, make sure they are friendly to the casinos we have here and, at the same time, we have to work on our marketing programs like anything else. You cant just roll over; you learn how to compete in a tougher market, said Mr Markantonis. Casinos in the Bahamas have suffered significant yearover-year declines in revenue in recent times. Atlantis reported an 8 per cent decline in 2010, while Crystal Palace saw an 18.5 per cent drop. While this is in part because of sluggish tourism levels overall, industry stakeholders have consistently pointed to out-dated gaming regulations as a contributing factor in a narrowing of this nations competitive advantage. In March 2009, Robert Sands, then Bahamas Hotel Association president, told this newspaper he believed radical change would be needed to gaming regulations i f the Bahamas is to maintain a competitive edge against other popular destinations. When Mr VanderpoolWallace last spoke to Tribune Business in October 2010 on the subject of the reforms proposed by the hotel and gaming industry to the sectors regulatory framework, he suggested the proposals were in front of (him under active consideration. T he Minister suggested the G overnment is looking to marry its own recommendations that it believes will be even more beneficial to Bahamian casino gaming with those proposed by the private sector, as it moves to" enhance and hold on to the significant competitive advantages" this nation has.

After an annual average occupancy rate for 2010 in the low 60s, the flagship Paradise Island resort is predicting a yearly occupancy ratea verage in the high 60s or low 70s for this year. One month does not make a year, but its a good sign, said Mr Markantonis of the April projections. Easter has moved to the end part of April, so its expanded the higher-rated tourism business, and we have seen theb ookings coming in at a much higher pace than they ever had. When I say a record, if we go over 80 per cent for the month its going to be amazing, and that would be amazing for the city. M r Markantonis said Kerzner Internationals $100 million expansion and renovation programme on Paradise Island s tarted last year and is going quite fine, with the most high profile new addition to Atlantiss amenities being the Teen Club, called Crush. The high-tech facility, initially budgetedt o cost $7 million, ultimately cost $11 million. Teenagers The club is for teenagers in the 13 to 17 year-old range, a nd features a Mocktail bar, a video-gaming tree, interactive table tops from which teenagers can place orders for d rinks and food, and a DJ booth and dance floor fit for a high-end New York City nightclub. Ninety new staff members were taken on to run the facili ty, which opened on December 20, 2010. Its mind boggling and worthy of adults, really, said Mr Markantonis, who said t he overrun came about as the company just kept adding stuff to the space. Meanwhile, another major development set to come on stream in 2011, which is projected toc ost Kerzner International a further $10 million, will be a Virgils BBQ restaurant in the Coral Towers, in the space w here the former Waters Edge restaurant once was. Its a giant new restaurant concept we are bringing in from New York. I think all of our local fans are going to lovet his place as much as the tourists. Its the same group as Carmines. Its a monster BBQ restaurant and we are building a 650 seater one right here. It will be the worlds most beautiful barbecue restaurant, said Mr Markantonis. The restaurant will require around 250 to 300 new staff to b e taken on, he projected. Other plans for 2011 include renovations to the casino and renovations to the Atlas restaurant, although the latter oft hese is still to be finalised, added Mr Markantonis. He revealed that guest satisfaction levels, measured by an i ndependent research company, JD Powers, continued to climb through 2010, with each month setting a new satis faction record. Thats a great tribute to our staff and their efforts, but also to the training programs, said Mr Markantonis. $100M ATLANTIS EXPANSION LEADS TO 90 NEW JOBS F ROM page 1B Atlantis: Get a move on with gaming reforms F ROM page 1B VINCENT VANDERPOOLWALLACE

BUSINESS THE TRIBUNE MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011, PAGE 5B TO DISCUSS STORIES ON THIS PAGE LOG ON TO WWW.TRIBUNE242.COM between the US and the Bahamas. W ith Crowley and Seaboard Marine, two key members of the FloridaBahamas Shipowners & O perators Association, r evealing that the increases will apply to all imports and exports carried between the Bahamas and US as of Feb-r uary 20 this year, Khaalis Rolle, the Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and E mployers Confederations ( BCCEC) chairman, warned this nations economy would face serious problems if oil prices rose at the same r ate as in 2008. Crowley and Seaboard M arine said the move had been forced by the rising c ost of bunker fuel, which mirrors oil prices, and had risen by over $500 per met-r ic ton. T he Journal of Commerce Online reported: The two carriers said they will increase the bunker surcharge $66 on 20-foot equiv-a lent units, $132 on 40-foot equivalent units and $149 on all equipment over 40 feet. Acknowledging that there was little the Bahamas could do to directly influence globa l oil prices, Mr Rolle told T ribune Business that companies and households had to focus on ways to manage our energy consump tion. Agreeing with Prime Mini ster Hubert Ingraham that rising commodities prices, especially food and energy, p osed a major threat to the Bahamian economys gradual recovery from recession, the Chamber chief said that among ways to mitigate the impact from oil price increases were for the Government to reduce its taxes on fuel. This the Ingraham administration is unlikely to do, given the present fiscal crisis and Treasury desire to lay its hands on every cent of possible revenue, especially given that fuel taxes are among just four items that generate almost 40 per cent of the Governments annual revenues. But, alternatively, Mr Rolle called on Bahamian companies with the cash means to follow the likes ofS uper Value and hedge against rising energy and t ransportation costs by bulk b uying inventory in advance. And he urged the Governm ent to get on with implementing the National Energ y Policy, arguing it would p rovide a road map to r educe this nations fossil fuel dependence. Theres not much we can do to impact oil pricesb ecause theyre outside our scope of influence, but wen eed to find some way to mitigate and manage whats about to take place, Mr Rolle told Tribune Business. Its easy for me to say, but the Government has tol ook at the tax structure on f uel. Thats one area we can look at. Yet the Governments tax take actually increases as fuel prices rise, thanks to the 7 per cent Stamp Duty per gallon imposed on landed fuel, while it also takes a $1.16 per gallon flat rate tax to book. Given that the Government is unlikely to accept a reduced tax take from fuel, M r Rolle added: There has to be some sort of hedging that takes place, especially for companies that are fuel dependent. Were already talking about inflation derived from food costs, and thats a major concern. Super Values intention is to hedge, and I think thats a good strategy. If you have the capacity to hedge, youd better do it. During the last oil price spike, Super Value was one of the firms able to manage it relatively easily as their strategy focused on hedging, purchasing in bulk up front. Still, Mr Rolle said many Bahamian companies, espe-c ially small and mediumsized businesses that opera ted on a very tight budg et, with cash in, cash out, would find it impossib le to employ a hedging strategy. And, illustrating j ust how much the Bahamas w as at the mercy of oil specu lators and financial traders, Mr Rolle recounted being t old that one Alaskan oil pipeline being taken out ofs ervice for temporary repairs resulted in a $3i ncrease in global oil prices, as speculators pushed unwarranted concerns about a drop in global supply. Theres no real rhyme or reason about this, Mr Rollet old Tribune Business. Thats why its important weve got to go after the National Energy Policy, and the Government cannot delay rolling this out. It is an imperative, it is a must. The Bahamas needs to start weaning ourselves of fossil fuels, and even though the transition is an expensive one, the tragedy lies in not pursuing this relatively quickly. I think thats an e ven more expensive propo sition. Its important that the long awaited and muchdelayed National Energy Policy has to be implemente d and executed. The Chamber chairman said the pace of work on d eveloping a National Energy Policy seemed to have slowed over the last two years, as global oil prices fell back down to more normal l evels, the 2008 price shocks h aving sparked the Government into action. We went at kind of a frenetic pace initially, because we were going through a diff icult period of ever-increasing prices, and that has slowed somewhat because the storm slowed, but that storm is forming again, Mr R olle added. We just need t o find ways to manage our e nergy consumption. Warning that the Bahamas was headed down the same slippery slope of rising oil prices that took it into one of the worst mode rn recessions, he said: If t he rate of oil price increase s becomes steep and large, were going to have a serious problem. I dont know if theres going to be any hope for recovery. Mr Rolle said that with m any Bahamian firms hav ing come through one of the most difficult trading periods they will ever face, their ability and that of their customers to absorb energy price rises in their cost struct ure was limited. Its going to depend on t he individual firm and their ability to absorb it and pass it on. If you absorb it, how long can your business survive, and if you pass it on how much more is the cons umer going to take, and w hats that going to do to your business? asked Mr Rolle.

t hroughout the economy. Normally in November we have staff working one or two days a week. This will mean we will need all handso n deck, said Mr Markant onis of Atlantis. He was speaking at a press conference to officially announce the Bahamas having won a vote to receiveN ational Collegiate Athleti c Association (NCAA exempt status last week, w hich will attract college basketball teams to play in this nation because they willn o longer be subject to sanctions for doing so, and can see any wins or losses count towards their season record. Atlantis, the Ministries of Tourism and Sports, the Bahamas Basketball Federation and others have all lobbied for the Bahamas to receive the coveted exempt status for 14 months. With this achieved, Mr Markantonis predicted that the Battle 4 Atlantis will become the premier pres eason basketball tournam ent in the NCAA schedu le, following in the footsteps of brand name preseason basketball tourna-m ents such as Hawaiis Maui Invitational. The event comes on the heels of the Battle at Atlantis double-header tournament on December 18 last year, the success of which was credited by Bahamas Basketball Federation president, Lawrence Hepburn, with putting the Bahamas over the hump towards winning the votes needed to secure the status. The upcoming Thanksg iving tournament will be b igger than the 2010 event, i nvolving eight as-yetunidentified big US college teams competinga gainst each other over four to five days in 12 games. Mr Markantonis said: We put it in the Thanksgiving week because tradit ionally November has not been a strong month for us. Wed like to create a lot ofe nergy. If youve got eight teams here playing 12 games o ver a four or five-day period, people are going to be employed. Normally int hose months thats when people are working one or two days a week. The good news will be that this will mean all hands on deck. And its not just here...I would like to think that if eight teams travel with theirf ans, and get alumni coming, staying at all hotels a cross the island, that therell be a great trickle down in the economy. The strategy with doing it on Thanksgiving is it gives u s that holiday period when it makes sense to travel with the family and catch a fewd ays on top of the basketball and see Nassau, added M r Markantonis. With eight teams coming with their officials, friendsa nd families, Mr Markantonis said this alone could b ring around 1,500 people to the Bahamas. Add to this other fans who will pay toc ome and stay in Nassau to see the games, and thou sands more are anticipated. Ballroom T he ballroom, which Atlantis spent $500,000 converting into an NCAA-reg-u lation compliant basketball arena for the 2010 tournam ent, will be expanded from 2,500 to 4,500 seats toa ccommodate the bigger annual Thanksgiving events which are now in thep ipeline, while an additional ballroom will be converted into a practice court prior to the Battle 4 Atlantis. Mr Markantonis said Kerzner International has received significant interest already from college bas k etball teams who want to participate in the Battle 4 Atlantis this year and going forward. We have numerous teams speaking to us about 2012, 2013. In fact, we are booking teams even for 2015 now. I can tell you that as good as 2011 is going to be, youd be shocked at what we have coming in 2012, its just a major line-up. Everyone is fighting to come to this tourn ament, said Mr Markantonis. A lot of it is because besides being the premier pre-season basketball tournament, it will also be the richest within the NCAA guidelines, whether in terms of scholarships or athletic department donations or whatever it is. We have sufficient sponsors that will help us cover all of these expenses. Meanwhile, another boost could come in the form of NBA teams coming to play at the resorts facilities in the future. Three teams have been in touch with us. We are postponing those conversa tions for now because we have one priority at the moment, said Mr Markan-t onis. Besides the attention the resort and the Bahamas will receive directly from those t raveling to the country to participate in or attend the tournament, Mr Markanto nis said Atlantis is in discuss ions with several media houses about television coverage for the event. They have come to us to t alk about broadcasting these games live in the US, which is how you also attract top teams, said Mr Markantonis.

THE Air Conditioning Depot, a new full-service parts and supplies store located at the Builders Mall on Wulff Road, is a state-of-the-art addition not to the Builders Mall family, but to the air conditioning industryin The Bahamas. Having recently attended the International BuildersShow in Orlando, Florida, the largest show of its kind, the partners of Air Conditioning Depot were able to gain first hand knowledge of the cur rent industry status, as well as establish relationships with industry contacts and key companies. The AC Depot, as it is more commonly known, opened in the summer of 2010, and since then, has already become a leader in air conditioning equipment, parts, and supplies. Specializing in high SEER equipment, its energy efficient, economic Tempstar line is one of its best-sellers, and making aname for itself among air conditioning name brands in The Bahamas. Tempstar is actually owned by the same par ent as Carrier a well-known, long-standing air conditioning name and therefore carries with it a history of reliability, efficiency and comfort. The AC Depot also distributes the Carrier and Goodman lines, and prides itself on the variety of sizes of equip ment and their SEER ratings. For those unsure of what SEER is, the acronym stands for Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating. In simple terms, it is a measurement used to determine how much electricity (or energy ditioner uses in exchange for how much cooling it puts out. The higher the SEER, the less electricity the AC uses, therefore making it less expensive to run. The caveat here, is that the initial cost to purchase a high SEER air conditioning is more than your average, basic, air conditioner, but the savings over time is in the neighbourhood of 50 per cent and statistics have shown that the investment pays itself back after the first year. For example, the aver age person in The Bahamas will purchase a 10 SEER unit, as opposed to a 14, 15 or 16 SEER unit. Most people only look at the initial cost to purchase and install a unit and not the cost of operating that unit. Under current U.S. law, the minimum SEER rating permitted is 13 SEER. With a similar climate to that of South Florida's, The Bahamas should implement, at the very least, a similar standard. The reason most people do not purchase high SEER equipment is that they just don't know that the alternatives exists. This is another area in which the Air Conditioning Depot will make a positive change and help the environment. Beginning this summer, the AC Depot plans to team up with BTVI and offer summer workshops for its students. They have also started a local contractor/installer sign-up programme, in which they plan to offer informational sessions on new and cuttinge dge equipment and technologies. AC Depot not only ser vices the air conditioning industry and its contractors, but also consumers directly, with their wide array of prod-u cts including ductless units, t ools and filters.

e st related to sports tourism. Events are being establ ished, and we are projecting that sports tourism has the potential to make a big dent in the loss of that corporate business that our major hotels lost. We feel very strongly about it, M r Johnson said. We are on track, and we are particularly pleased that Tyrone [Sawyer, director of sports tourism at the Ministry of Tourism] and his team have made progress with the Mini stry of Youth and Sports and t he sector, and that we are gett ing much traction and seeing signfiicant growth groups resulting from sports tourism. And that's not just to Nassau and Paradise Island, but to Abaco, San Salvador, Grand Bahama. Meanwhile, Charles Mayn ard, minister of youth, sports a nd culture, said he, too, was of the opinion that sports-related visits to the Bahamas "could overtake the conventions market as a vehicle to bring people who ordinarily wouldntt ravel to the Bahamas on vacation to the Bahamas. He and Mr Johnson, along with Kerzner International (Bahamas aging director, George Markantonis, and Bahamas Basketball Federation president, LawrenceH epburn, were speaking at a press conference on Friday to discuss the granting of Nation-a l Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA to the Bahamas, which will a llow college basketball teams to play in the Bahamas without being subject to sports sanctions, and seeing their wins and losses added to their school sea-s on record. The victory, after 14 months of lobbying, paves the way fort he Battle 4 Atlantis eight team-tournament at Atlantis at Thanksgiving this year a major tourism draw and, according to Mr Maynard and others, "opens up more possibilities", helping to "propel our sportst ourism initiative to the next level. "It also opens the door for us to further penetrate the market and try to get other sporting disciplines to follow suit, and try to get exempt status as well...This is a wonderful thingf or the Bahamas overall," said Mr Maynard. He added that the Governm ent is keen to make good use of the new national stadium, set for completion this year, w ith any major international sporting attractions held there also set to produce spin-off benefits for Bahamian hotels and other services. A sked specifically what sporting events are set to come to this nation this year, MrS awyer declined to "make announcements for other people", but said there is "quite a bit on the drawing board" for 2011. He mentioned the Tour of the Bahamas cycling race,w hich is due to take place at the end of this month, organised by Holowesko Partners, as one example of such attractions. The race draws numerous cyclists from both the Bahamas and abroad to participate in the three-day long event. Mr Markantonis revealed thatA tlantis also has a "major tennis tournament" planned for this year, and would love tow ork on projects to bring big sports events to the national stadium. He said Kerzner International has been, and will continue, to lobby for PGA (Professional Golfers Association of America) exempt status in the hope of attracting more international golfing events to t he Bahamas. The BBF's president, Mr Hepburn, calling the newly-a nnounced NCAA exempt status a "dream come true" for the BBF, noted that it will noto nly pave the way for Atlantis t o host the Battle 4 Atlantis, but for more BBF organised e vents throughout the country. "We have always had numerous people coming to us wantin g to come here to put on tournaments. We have been running behind people to assist us with t his but today we have it. It hurt my heart to know we sit right next to the US but we couldnt put on a good enought ournament to attract a crowd from abroad, as good as a Maui classic (another major pre-season basketball tournament held in Hawaii). "It was a splended job on December 18, and I think thatp ut everything over the hump. Now I know the Federation is going to have numerous people calling. We have already heard from several big schools. We are just excited and delighted," said Mr Hepburn. M r Maynard added that the Government is set to debate the Sports Authority Bill in Parliament, which will establ ish a sports authority to "give you the real mechanism for the proper development of sports tourism, and the proper man-a gement and promotion of sports facilities throughout the country. "So this is all happening at the same time, and I think we should feel good about thec hances of the Bahamas for sports tourism," he said.

DAVID K. RANDALL, AP Business Writer NEW YORK The news last week that Apple's Steve Jobs is taking a leave of absence was a big stor y. But something else about the company got far less attention and could be even more important to investors this year. Corporations "are adding i Pads to their approved device list at an amazing rate," Peter Oppenheimer, Apple Inc.'s chief financial officer, told anal ysts Tuesday. Apple's products, more known for their consumer appeal, are now used in by employees of Wells Fargo, Archer Daniels Midland,D uPont and others. Splurging on $500 iPads is a sign that the business cycle is starting to turn and that comp anies are starting to spend a record amount of cash they've accumulated. If the trend is real, companies will do what c onsumers haven't -spark a strong economic recovery. That c ould push the Standard & Poor's 500 index to its third s traight year of double-digit percentage gains. The last timet hat happened: the tech-boom days of the late 1990s. ''You're going to see a bigger commitment to growth this year because companies have u nderspent for quite some time," says Bill Stone, chief i nvestment strategist at PNC Asset Management. F inancial, technology and energy companies are the most l ikely to benefit from business spending, says David Bianco, a market strategist at Bank of A merica. Each group is up about 3 percent this year, near l y one percentage point ahead of the overall S&P 500. Those t hree groups account for nearly half of index's value. The continued success of financial, energy and technology stocks would point to a new s tage of this bull market, which has returned nearly 100 percents ince it began in March 2009. Consumer discretionary stocks, t he group of hotels, retail stores and automakers that depend on consumer spending, outperformed the last two years after being left for dead during the 2 008 financial crisis. Those companies are now lagging them arket, suggesting that the bounce back from the lows of t he recession is over. "Consumers don't have the income growth to sustain a more rapid pace of spending," says Jeffrey Kleintop, a market s trategist at LPL Financial. Instead, he says, businesses s pending will eventually lead to a pickup in the jobs market. C orporate spending on technology helped IBM Corp. beat analyst expectations last week. On Tuesday, IBM said that its 7 percent jump in revenue came in part from companies in the U.S. upgrading their computer systems. Its stock jumped a lmost 4 percent last week. Energy companies, meanwhile, are leading the market this year with a 3.4 percent j ump because of higher d emand, a sign of an improving economy. Oil company Schlumberger said Friday profit in the most recent quarter rose 31 perc ent. And financial companies are benefiting from loans to businesses, a signal that those companies plan to expand. J PMorgan said on its earnings c all last week that it added 400 middle-market companies as new commercial loan customers. Bank of America said F riday that demand for business loans stabilized last quarter, while US Bancorp said Wednesday that all of its comm ercial loans divisions were i mproving, with the exception of real estate. Financial companies have the added benefit of being cheap. The price-toe arnings ratio of the financial companies in the S&P 500 index averages 11.6, about half of its historical average. Financ ial companies are cheaper than a ny other group except for health care, which costs 11.2 times earnings.

By BRENT STUBBS S enior Sports Reporter bstubbs@tribunemedia.net T HEY went to the third round and ended up with a "No Decision" as Sherman 'the Tank' Williams' b id to clinch the World Boxing Federation's heavyweight title away from Evander "the Real Deal" Holyfield on Saturday night. The 12-round main event bout dubbed "Redemption in America" and carried live on Pay-Per-View saw Holyfield h ead butt and throw a couple blows behind the head of Williams in the first round. That resulted in Williams turning up the heat in the second round as suffered a cut over his left eye. After taking a series of blows and what was called an accidental head butt, Holyfield was b leeding too much that he didn't answer the bell for the fourth round as the fight ended up in a "no contest" before a jammed pack black-tie crowd from Americas resort -The Greenbriers Colonial Hall -in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Im back, said Williams who staggered Holyfield at the end of the third round with an overhand right. This fight was circus: on again, off again. But I stayed focused. I hurt him with an overhand punch. Lets bring this fight to Atlantis Holyfield-Williams II. Ill take his place in Denmark and fight Nielson. Williams was referring to Holyfield's next scheduled bout on March 5 against Brian Niel son that is now in jeopardy because of his injury. Im cut, Holyfield said after the fight. He head-butted me. He came down on me with his head. I dont know about my next fight (March 5 vs. Brian Nielson in Denmark). Im cut, Im cut. Ill give Sherman a rematch. In his first fight since his 10 round loss on October 10 last year to Manuel Charr in Stadthalle, Rostock, Mecklen burg-Vorpommern, Germany, the 5-feet, 11-inches Williams f rom Grand Bahama topped the scale at 258 pounds, compared to the 6-21/2 Holyfield from Atlanta, Georgia, who came in at 224 a fter his eight round decision over Francois Botha to clincht he WBF title on April 10. Ive had my own personal s etbacks. To get over what I did was a miracle. I trained h ard for this fight. I was fighting a legend and I cant take any thing away from him. I feel like I should have won by TKO. I cut him with an overhand right, but I respect him," Williams said. As a youngster growing up, 38-year-old Williams said he idolized Holyfield, but never envisioned fighting the 48-yearold former three-time world champion. I root for him. Hes almost 50 and still training and per forming. I admire what hes done but its time to let younger guys fight and older guys do television commentary," Williams quipped. "Hes not as good looking as I am. Youve made sacrifices, won 4 world championships and fought in the Olympics. But this is a new time, a new era.

Holyfield fails to answer bell for fourth round after accidental head butt By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter bstubbs@tribunemedia.net RAY Minus Jr. was impressed with what he saw as his Champion Boxing Club opened their 2011 season with their first amateur boxing show on Saturday night at the Wulff Road Boxing Center. So was national amateur boxing coach Andre Seymour, who brought one of his competitors from his Carmichael Knockout Boxing Club to participate against one of Minus' Champion Boxing Club competitor. "This is great. This is a good evelopment programme. Ray is doing a great job," Seymour said. "He is working with the kids in the inner city. These kids have natural talent. "We just have to continue to work with them because if we can do that, we will have al ot more boxers coming up. But in years to come, we don't want them to drift away. So we have to keep the talent and groom them for international tournaments." Seymour said he hope to support more of Minus' shows in the future with more of his boxing coming from the Carmichael Road area to take on the boxers from the Kemp Road area. In the only mixed match of the night, Malik Lungrin, representing Seymour's Knockout Boxing Club, took on Tavaris Deveaux from Minus' Champion Boxing Club.

S PORTS TRIBUNE SPORTS MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011, PAGE 3E TO DISCUSS STORIES ON THIS PAGE LOG ON TO WWW.TRIBUNE242.COM By RENALDO DORSETT Sports Reporter rdorsett@tribunemedia.net IN an effort to further develop the game of basketball and increase the level of the product produced on the floor, the Bahamas Basketball Federation (BBF tive of improving the skills of coaches across the country. The BBF recently announced it will host its second annual International Basketball Coaches Clinic with a myriad of high profile coaches imported for a weekend of tutelage in various aspects of the game. This year's edition of the event will be hosted in conjunction with the Atlantis Resort, August 3-7, at the world class facility which has taken a vested interest in basketball since it hosted the "Battle at Atlantis" and was integral in the Bahamas becoming just the third country to receive exempt status from the NCAA. According to federation executives, the objective of the clinic, which will again feature top college coaches from t he US and the Bahamas, is to increase the pool of qualified coaches in the country in the various leagues and youth development programmes, paving the way for their long-term involvement in the sport. Edgar Pickstock, Vice President of the Bahamas Basketball Federation "Although their contribution has already been so great thus far, Atlantis and its team continues to go above and beyond the call of duty in terms of t he development of the game of bask etball in this country," he said, Atlantis will be lending its assistance to the BBF for the second edition of its International Coaches Clinic. Coaches from top Division I Univer sities such as Duke, North Carolina and others. With respects to the exempt status we expect great things out of this and it gives us an even greater opportunity for us to market our tours and events. The BBF completed its first edition of the International Basketball Coaches Clinic last August with a myriad of high profile coaches imported for a weekend of tutelage in various aspects of the game. BBF president Lawrence Hepburn said the progression of the game, in the increased knowledge of its coaches is not an option, but is mandated by the federation. As a federation, whether it is this administration or the next, we are faced with a mandate to educate ourc oaches, he said, We must also ensure that our young athletes are in the best possible position to succeed by receiving the best possible coaching they can have. At the conclusion of last year's clinic, Hepburn noted the disappointingn umber of local coaches who took advantage of the event, something the federations hopes will improve this year. The one thing that appears to be a bit of a disappointment is the turnout from local coaches. I must say wee xpected a greater turnout based on the number and calibre of visiting coaches we had in town to conduct the clinic. We anticipated more than 5 0 coaches to come and take part and that did not happen but as a federation it is our job to provide the opportunities, to learn it is up to these coaches to take advantage, he said. For those that attended it was an experience for them that they will not soon forget and would undoubtedly make them better at what they do. It was a learning experience for those that came to listen, but also for those who presented and many lasting relationships were formed. Highlighting the group of visiting coaches was Frank Martin, head coach of the Kansas State Wildcats. Martin led the upstart Wildcats to the Elite Eight round of the NCAA tournament. They finished the season 29-8 overall, second in the Big 12 at 11-5, and ended the season as the seventh ranked team in the nation. Also appearing at the event was Ronnie Arrow, head coach of the University of South Alabama, Ed Kershn er, iconic high school coach and member of the Florida High School Basketball Hall of Fame, Royce Huseman Kingwood High School Texas5 A State Championship Coach, Gale Goestenkors University of Texas, Larry Tidwell Lamar University, Don Showalter USA Basketball U17 National Coach and Cliff Ellis -C oastal Carolina University. Move to continue improving skills of basketball coaches night, Jermaine Allen, last year's most improved junior boxer of the year, continued to shine as he polished off Garrett Bain 12-8, winning all three of the rounds. "He was a little older and bigger than me, but I trained hard, so I just went at him," said Allen, a 13-year-oldg rade eight student at DW D avis Junior High School. As he loosk ahead to the rest of the season, Allen said he just need to work on his early morning training, making sure that he's in better condition when he come intot he gym to work out. In what turned out to be the fight of the night, Peterson Wra upset last year's Junior Boxer of the Year, Don Rolle, with a close 10-9 decision. Wra actually took the fight to Rolle and for the most part, the two traded a series of punches. When it was over and Wra was was awarded the victory, Rolle displayed some unsportsmanlike conduct as referee Gregory Storr raised Wra hand when Minus Jr. read the result. "It's a good feeling beating him," said Wra, another 13year-old eighth grader at DW Davis. "Coach told me to move around and throw the jab and that was what I did." Minus Jr. said he was pleased with the performances from the boxers. "It was great. We saw mas sive improvement from last year, so we're happy to come out with a bang in the new year," he stressed. "We had about ten fights. We had a whole lot of new fighters com ing on stream so far." Minus Jr. said this year his Champion Boxing Club will be traveling to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to compete in a couple of shows against the American boxers to test their skills. "We're going to take advantage of those shows so that we can lift the level of com petition for these boxers," he insisted. "Our programme is not just going to stick here. We are going to seek bigger and better competition." Results from Saturday's show are posted below: Bernard Munroe def. Desmond Kelly 5-4. Kenzell Armbrister def. Leneikp Carey 5-4. Trae Johnson def.

SPORTS PAGE 4E, MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 TRIBUNE SPORTS TO DISCUSS STORIES ON THIS PAGE LOG ON TO WWW.TRIBUNE242.COM By BRENT STUBBS Senior Sports Reporter bstubbs@tribunemedia.net SWIFT Swimming literally cut their cake and ate it too as they dominated their Gunite Pools/Swift Swimming 20th Anniversary Swim Meet on Saturday night at the Betty Kelly Kenning Aquatic Center. Swift Swimming compiled a 1,018 point victory to easily beat out the six-team field as they shared their anniversary cake during the postmeet celebrations. Their nearest rival was the Barracuda Swim Club with 519. "We made a real effort to get a lot of our kids out so they can get in their times," said head coach Andy Knowles, who started the club in 1990, but their first season was launched in 1990/91 calendar year. "So they did very well." Reminiscent of the earlier days of their existence, Swift Swimming changed the format of the meet where they hosted the heats in the morning and staged the finals in the evening over the two day period similar to what is done at the Bahamas Swimming Federation's Nationals and the Carifta Games. Additionally, Swift Swimming through their long-time sponsor Gunite Pool, presented the top three high point winners in each of the six age group with a pot of flower that had their gold, silver or bronze medal stuck in the middle. They also were presented with a coupon from Wendy's Restaurant. Like they did in dominating the meet, Swift Swimming captured all but two of the top individual high point awards. Dustin Tynes, com peting unattached in the boys 13and-over and Allison Taylor from Team Orca in Grand Bahama, com peting in the girls 8-and-under, crashed the party. Tynes, 14, collected a total of 43 points for his title over Anibal Her nandez Valdes of Swift and Peter Farquharson, unattached, who both had 39. Taylor, 7, collected 32 points to out-distance Swift's Dylan Roberts (28 Bowe (27 See scoreboard for their individual performances. Swift's individual winners were Mark Thompson (43 boys; Lilly Higgs (50 Morley (59 Allen (52 berg (55 ley (49 Pleased A number of the swimmers interviewed after the meet were pleased with their performances. "It was good. I was happy with my performance," said Albury, who hada successful showing in the girls 100 fly. "The competition was good. I'm in the lower end of my age group, but I was happy with my performance." Morley, the 14-year-old champion in the girls 13-and-over division, said it's still early in the season, but she was pleased with her effort. "I did a couple of personal bests, so that was exciting," stated Morley, who competed in the 50 and 100 breast, 50 back, 200 and 400 IM and 200 free. Simone Sturrup, competing in the girls 11-12 division, said she felt she did a great job. "I think I did a great job. I did personal best and I made the cut for CCCAN," said Sturrup, who sur passed the qualifying time in the 50 fly. "The competition was good at times, but I didn't have a lot of push." Tremaine Allen, the winner of the girls 11-12 division over Sturrup, said she got off to a shaky start, but as the meet progressed, she got better. "I felt good about my performance. I have to keep working at it to make sure I get my Carifta times because I need them know to qualify," she stressed. Peter Morley, 9, said his perfor mance was good. "I was very happy, especially with my 50 free because I came first just by a touch," he reflected. "I think I can do better." Lilly Higgs, 10, was more delight ed in the improvement of her times. "I beat some of my times I did early in the meet," said Higgs, about her 50 free and both the 50 and 100 back. "I'm hoping that I can contin ue to improve. I want to win Nation als this year." Nick Holmberg, 12, said he had a g reat time competing in the meet. "I think my performance was very good," said Holmberg, who was impressed with his 50 fly and 50 and 100 free. "I just want to continue beating my times as I go this year.' Anibal Hernandez, 15, said he performed well, but there's still a lot more room for improvement. "I'm planning on making the Carif ta team again this year and hopefully CCCAN, so I have to work more on my starts, my turns and my sta mina as a long distance swimmer."

The Caribs placed three scorers in double figures in the 5 7-44 win over the Sentinel All-Stars Saturday night at the D.W Davis Gymnasium. Natiska Silver led the way with a double double, 16 points and 11 rebounds, Gabrielle McKinney also posteda double double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, while Shadell Williams finished with 10 points and five r ebounds. A full balanced scoring effort for the Caribs included Deandra WIlliams with eight points, Delesia Mackey withs even points and eight rebounds, while Alexis Maycock came off the bench to finish with four points.

A spectacular own goal by Romania defender Gabriel Tamas put Rovers ahead in the 41st minute, and the win was secured in the 47th when Canadian forward David Hoilett thumped a 25-yard drive past goalkeeper Boaz Myhill for his first league goal. It means a lot, I've been waiting for it for a long time," said the 20-year-old Hoilett, w ho made his debut for the c lub last year but has only previously scored in the cup com-p etitions. It was the third home victory i n a row for Blackburn under new manager Steve Kean. We knew it was going to be a tough game, but we reallys tuck at it and I thought we w ere excellent," Kean said. West Brom, which has now l ost home and away to Blackburn in the space of four weeks, h as won once in seven league matches and is only three points a bove the relegation zone. "At 1-0 down at halftime we w ere still in the game, but the way we came out in the second half was very disappointing," W est Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo said.

Arsenal beat Wigan 3-0t o move into second, overtaking Manchester City, which lost 1-0 at Aston Villa. Arsenal is two points behind U nited having played a game more, and a point clear of City. A fter a slow start, Blackburn made most of the running int he first half and West Brom was indebted to Myhill for k eeping the score level before T amas' gaffe. The visitors' only chance b efore the break fell to top scorer Peter Odemwingie, after j ust 30 seconds. Norway international Morten Gamst Peder-s en lost possession in midfield, allowing Odemwingie to pounce and smash a 25-yard v olley that was pushed away by P aul Robinson. Swedish winger Martin Olsson and Christopher Samba, twice, had low shots saved by M yhill as Blackburn started to dominate. But the goalkeeper could do nothing to prevent Tamas' header flying past him. U nited States midfielder Jerm aine Jones, making his debut for Rovers following his sixmonth loan move from Schalke, slipped a ball through to David D unn, whose angled cross was powered into his own net by Tamas from eight yards out. West Brom has now concede d at least one goal in 21 s traight league games. Hoilett made it 2-0 when he picked the ball up 35 yards out, cut inside and unleashed a swerving effort that powered t hrough the attempted save of Myhill for his first Premier L eague goal.

INTERNATIONALSPORTS PAGE 8E, MONDAY, JANUARY 24, 2011 TRIBUNE SPORTS TO DISCUSS STORIES ON THIS PAGE LOG ON TO WWW.TRIBUNE242.COM CHRIS JENKINS, A P Sports Writer CHICAGO There was one Monster of the Midway in the NFC championship game and his name was Aaron Rodgers. H e wasn't even at his best and, still, he was better than the first, the second and the third quarterback used in vain by theC hicago Bears against their bitter rivals. Rodgers ran for a score and made a TD-saving tackle in leading t he Green Bay Packers into the Super Bowl with a bone-jarring 2114 victory Sunday over Chicago. "It's an incredible feeling," Rodgers said. "I'm at a loss for words." Rodgers played well enough to keep the Bears off balance all afternoon, Green Bay punter Tim Masthay kept Devin Hester under wraps and the Packers' superb defense took care of the r est in knocking the Bears out of the playoffs. It was the 182nd meeting in the league's most historic feud, a nd the stakes had never been bigger. Now the Packers (13-6 w hat happens in the Super Bowl on Feb. 6, the Packers and their fans hold ultimate bragging rights over their foes to the south. Green Bay will play the winner of Sunday night's AFC title game between the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers. "We made a play to win the game and that's all that matters," P ackers linebacker Clay Matthews said. "Keep playing defense the way we know how, and it's going to be tough for teams to beat us." A ll Jay Cutler could do was watch, having left the game with a knee injury early in the third quarter. Even before the injury, C utler was having trouble moving the ball. Worse, he was getting booed by the home fans. Primary backup Todd Collins replaced Cutler and was jeered even worse. Then little-known backup Caleb Hanie and the Bears (12-6 Chicago's third-string quarterback rallied the Bears for a touchdown drive to cut the lead to 14-7 after Chester Taylor's 1-yard t ouchdown run early in the fourth quarter. Hanie had a chance to tie the game after the Bears' defense finall y got a few stops, but threw a ball straight to Packers defensive lineman B.J. Raji, who lumbered 18 yards into the end zone for a touchdown to give the Packers a 21-7 lead. But Hanie wasn't finished. He threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Earl Bennett to again cut the lead to seven points with 4:43 left. The Bears forced a punt and got the ball back with under 3 minutes left. Hanie drove the Bears to the Green Bay 29-yard line, then t hrew a fourth-down interception to Sam Shields the rookie's second of the game. N ow all those Pro Bowl voters who didn't think Rodgers was worthy can relax. They're off the hook. Rodgers will be headed to the Super Bowl instead. Rodgers proved ready for the biggest day of his brief but impres sive career as the successor to Brett Favre, even if his final stat line didn't look impressive after an ugly, hard-fought game. He threw for 244 yards with two interceptions a disappointment, given how well he had played lately. But his play in the first half was good enough to put the Bears in a two-touchdown hole, boggling a good defense that suddenly seemed to fall for every playaction fake. Chicago was ready for a championship party under sunny skies and 20-degree temperatures, and went wild from the national anthem on. But Rodgers quieted them down quickly, marching the Packers on an opening drive then ended with Rodgers scram bling for a score. The Bears went with a heavy dose of running back Matt Forte early on, with limited success. Early in the second quarter, Brandon Jackson faked Brian Urlacher out for a long gain on a screen pass, and Rodgers' pass to Jordy Nelson set up James Starks' 4-yard touchdown run to give Green Bay a 14-0 lead. It was the latest in a series of big moments for Rodgers, who has earned near-universal praise for the way he has played this season especially since sitting out the Packers' Dec. 19 loss at New England because of a concussion. Rodgers has been on a hot streak ever since, and doing it under pressure. The Packers would have been out of the playoffs with a loss in either of their last two regular-season games, including the regular season finale against Chicago. With the Packers leading 14-0 at halftime, Green Bay's defense forced a three-and-out to begin the second half, and Rodgers went back to marching the Packers down the field. With the Packers poised to put the game away, Rodgers instead tossed the ball to Urlacher on third-and-goal. He took off and ran down the Bears linebacker near midfield, barely preventing him from running it back for a touchdown when he grabbed him. "I don't think he saw me," Urlacher said. "He threw it to me then he tackled me." Rodgers' play almost certainly saved a score and might have saved the game. "I don't get paid to tackle, but that was probably one of my bet ter plays of the game," Rodgers said. Urlacher, who said earlier in the week that he voted for Rodgers for the Pro Bowl, walked away impressed. "Great quarterback, no doubt about that," Urlacher said. But after Urlacher's interception, the Bears couldn't make anything happen with Collins in for Cutler, and appeared to be headed for a blowout until Hanie took over. Packers players were surprised Cutler didn't come back. "You know if he doesn't come back it had to be serious, not to come back and play in this game," Charles Woodson said. Matthews wasn't sure when Cutler got hurt. "Kinda wish they would have had Jay in there the whole time the way things were going," Matthews said. Bears coach Lovie Smith grew testy after being asked several questions about Cutler's injury. "He hurt his knee and he was out, all right?" Smith said. "There's nothing else for me to tell you on that. I don't know exactly when it happened, he couldn't go and that was that."

"Although their contribution has
already been so great thus far, Atlantis
and its team continues to go above
and beyond the call of duty in terms of
the development of the game of bas-
ketball in this country,” he said,
"Atlantis will be lending its assistance
to the BBF for the second edition of
its International Coaches Clinic.
Coaches from top Division I Univer-

sities such as Duke, North Carolina
and others. With respects to the
exempt status we expect great things
out of this and it gives us an even
greater opportunity for us to market
our tours and events.

The BBF completed its first edition
of the International Basketball Coach-
es Clinic last August with a myriad of
high profile coaches imported for a
weekend of tutelage in various aspects
of the game.

BBF president Lawrence Hepburn
said the progression of the game, in
the increased knowledge of its coach-
es is not an option, but is mandated by
the federation.

“As a federation, whether it is this
administration or the next, we are
faced with a mandate to educate our
coaches,” he said, “We must also
ensure that our young athletes are in
the best possible position to succeed
by receiving the best possible coaching
they can have.”

At the conclusion of last year's clin-
ic, Hepburn noted the disappointing
number of local coaches who took
advantage of the event, something the
federations hopes will improve this
year.

“The one thing that appears to be a
bit of a disappointment is the turnout
from local coaches. I must say we
expected a greater turnout based on
the number and calibre of visiting
coaches we had in town to conduct

the clinic. We anticipated more than
50 coaches to come and take part and
that did not happen but as a federation
it is our job to provide the opportuni-
ties, to learn it is up to these coaches to
take advantage,” he said.

“For those that attended it was an
experience for them that they will not
soon forget and would undoubtedly
make them better at what they do. It
was a learning experience for those
that came to listen, but also for those
who presented and many lasting rela-
tionships were formed.”

Highlighting the group of visiting
coaches was Frank Martin, head coach
of the Kansas State Wildcats.

Martin led the upstart Wildcats to
the Elite Eight round of the NCAA
tournament. They finished the season
29-8 overall, second in the Big 12 at
11-5, and ended the season as the sev-
enth ranked team in the nation.

Also appearing at the event was
Ronnie Arrow, head coach of the Uni-
versity of South Alabama, Ed Kersh-
ner, iconic high school coach and
member of the Florida High School
Basketball Hall of Fame, Royce Huse-
man - Kingwood High School Texas
5A State Championship Coach, Gale
Goestenkors - University of Texas,
Larry Tidwell - Lamar University,
Don Showalter - USA Basketball U-
17 National Coach and Cliff Ellis -

@x GUNITE POOLS/SWIFT SWIMMING 20TH ANNIVERSARY SWIM MEET



Swift Swimming dominate meet



VICTORY IS SWEET: Swift celebration cake.

By BRENT STUBBS

Senior Sports Reporter

SWIFT Swimming literally cut
their cake and ate it too as they dom-
inated their Gunite Pools/Swift
Swimming 20th Anniversary Swim
Meet on Saturday night at the Betty
Kelly Kenning Aquatic Center.

Swift Swimming compiled a 1,018
point victory to easily beat out the
six-team field as they shared their
anniversary cake during the post-
meet celebrations. Their nearest rival
was the Barracuda Swim Club with
519.

"We made a real effort to get a lot
of our kids out so they can get in
their times,” said head coach Andy
Knowles, who started the club in
1990, but their first season was
launched in 1990/91 calendar year.
"So they did very well.”

Reminiscent of the earlier days of
their existence, Swift Swimming
changed the format of the meet
where they hosted the heats in the

morning and staged the finals in the
evening over the two day period -
similar to what is done at the
Bahamas Swimming Federation's
Nationals and the Carifta Games.

Additionally, Swift Swimming
through their long-time sponsor
Gunite Pool, presented the top three
high point winners in each of the six
age group with a pot of flower that
had their gold, silver or bronze
medal stuck in the middle.

They also were presented with a
coupon from Wendy's Restaurant.
Like they did in dominating the
meet, Swift Swimming captured all
but two of the top individual high
point awards. Dustin Tynes, com-
peting unattached in the boys 13-
and-over and Allison Taylor from
Team Orca in Grand Bahama, com-
peting in the girls 8-and-under,
crashed the party.

Tynes, 14, collected a total of 43
points for his title over Anibal Her-
nandez Valdes of Swift and Peter
Farquharson, unattached, who both
had 39. Taylor, 7, collected 32 points
to out-distance Swift's Dylan

LIGHTNING strikes at Swift meet.

Bowe (27).

performances.

Swift's individual winners were
Mark Thompson (43) 8-and-under
boys;

Lilly Higgs (50) 9-10 girls; Peter
Morley (59) 9-10 boys; Tremaine
Allen (52) 11-12 girls; Nick Holm-
berg (55) 11-12 boys and Laura Mor-
ley (49) 13-and-over girls.

Pleased

A number of the swimmers inter-
viewed after the meet were pleased
with their performances.

"It was good. I was happy with my
performance," said Albury, who had
a successful showing in the girls 100
fly. "The competition was good.
I'm in the lower end of my age
group, but I was happy with my per-
formance."

Morley, the 14-year-old champion
in the girls 13-and-over division, said
it's still early in the season, but she

was pleased with her effort.

"I did a couple of personal bests,
so that was exciting,” stated Mor-
ley, who competed in the 50 and 100
breast, 50 back, 200 and 400 IM and
200 free.

Simone Sturrup, competing in the
girls 11-12 division, said she felt she
did a great job.

"T think I did a great job. I did per-
sonal best and I made the cut for
CCCAN," said Sturrup, who sur-
passed the qualifying time in the 50
fl

"The competition was good at
times, but I didn't have a lot of
push."

Tremaine Allen, the winner of the
girls 11-12 division over Sturrup, said
she got off to a shaky start, but as the
meet progressed, she got better.

"T felt good about my performance.
Ihave to keep working at it to make
sure I get my Carifta times because I
need them know to qualify," she
stressed.

Peter Morley, 9, said his perfor-
mance was good.

"IT was very happy, especially with

Kenning Aquatic Center:

my 50 free because I came first just
by a touch,” he reflected.
"T think I can do better.”
Lilly Higgs, 10, was more delight-
ed in the improvement of her times.

"I beat some of my times I did
early in the meet,” said Higgs, about
her 50 free and both the 50 and 100
back. "I'm hoping that I can contin-
ue to improve. I want to win Nation-
als this year."

Nick Holmberg, 12, said he had a
great time competing in the meet.

"I think my performance was very
good,” said Holmberg, who was
impressed with his 50 fly and 50 and
100 free.

"Tjust want to continue beating my
times as I go this year.’

Anibal Hernandez, 15, said he per-
formed well, but there's still a lot
more room for improvement.

"I'm planning on making the Carif-
ta team again this year and hopeful-
ly CCCAN, so I have to work more
on my starts, my turns and my sta-
mina as a long distance swimmer."

Caribs record
another win

By RENALDO DORSETT

Sports Reporter
rdorsett@tribunemedia.net

The College of the Bahamas Caribs continued to make
a playoff push and padded their winning record by
recording another win against the league's bottom feed-
ers.

The Caribs placed three scorers in double figures in the
57-44 win over the Sentinel All-Stars Saturday night at
the D.W Davis Gymnasium.

Natiska Silver led the way with a double double, 16
points and 11 rebounds, Gabrielle McKinney also posted
a double double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, while
Shadell Williams finished with 10 points and five
rebounds.

A full balanced scoring effort for the Caribs included
Deandra Williams with eight points, Delesia Mackey with
seven points and eight rebounds, while Alexis Maycock
came off the bench to finish with four points.

Gariece Butler led the All-Stars and was the lone play-
er in double figures with 13 points and 10 rebounds and
two blocks.

Brittany Greenslade added six points and seven
rebounds while Tonya Stubbs added five points and six
rebounds.

The Caribs opened the game on a 10-0 run and shot 5-7
from the field in the game's first two minutes.

They took a 21-8 lead at the end of the first quarter but
the All-Stars would respond.

Led by Butler, who shot 9-13 from the free throw line
the young All-Star squad crawled their way back into the
game and outscored the Caribs 17-9 in the second quar-
ter.

Th Caribs led 30-25 at the half despite shooting just 27
percent from the field, 12 percent from beyond the arch
and 55 percent from the free throw line.

More aggressive on the offensive end of the floor, led
by a stellar defensive effort, the Caribs attempted 44 shots
whole the All-Stars were limited to just 25.

The second half was all Caribs as they outscored the
All-Stars 27-19 in the second half to hold on for the win.

League play continues Tuesday at the D.W Davis Gym-
nasium at 7:30pm

ENGLISH SOCCER ROUND-UP

Blackburn beat West Brom

Blackburn moved provision-

i ally into seventh place in the
i Premier League by beating
i West Bromwich Albion 2-0 on
? Sunday, courtesy of goals in a
? seven-minute spell either side
i of halftime.

A spectacular own goal by

? Romania defender Gabriel
? Tamas put Rovers ahead in the
i 41st minute, and the win was
i secured in the 47th when Cana-
: dian forward David Hoilett
? thumped a 25-yard drive past
? goalkeeper Boaz Myhill for his
i first league goal.

"It means a lot, I've been

i? waiting for it for a long time,"
i said the 20-year-old Hoilett,
i who made his debut for the
? club last year but has only pre-
i viously scored in the cup com-
i petitions.

It was the third home victory

? in a row for Blackburn under
? new manager Steve Kean.

"We knew it was going to be

a tough game, but we really
? stuck at it and I thought we
: were excellent," Kean said.

West Brom, which has now

i lost home and away to Black-
burn in the space of four weeks,
? has won once in seven league
? matches and is only three points
i above the relegation zone.

"At 1-0 down at halftime we

Arsenal is two points behind
United having played a game
more, and a point clear of City.

After a slow start, Blackburn
made most of the running in
the first half and West Brom
was indebted to Myhill for
keeping the score level before
Tamas' gaffe.

The visitors’ only chance
before the break fell to top
scorer Peter Odemwingie, after
just 30 seconds. Norway inter-

sen lost possession in midfield,

Paul Robinson.

Swedish winger Martin Ols-
son and Christopher Samba,
twice, had low shots saved by
Myhill as Blackburn started to
dominate. But the goalkeeper
could do nothing to prevent
Tamas' header flying past him.

United States midfielder Jer-
maine Jones, making his debut
for Rovers following his six-
month loan move from Schalke,
slipped a ball through to David
Dunn, whose angled cross was
powered into his own net by
Tamas from eight yards out.

West Brom has now conced-
ed at least one goal in 21
straight league games.

Hoilett made it 2-0 when he
picked the ball up 35 yards out,
cut inside and unleashed a
swerving effort that powered
through the attempted save of
Myhill for his first Premier
League goal.

West Brom finished the bet-
ter of the sides, with Robinson
saving shots by Jerome Thomas
and Chris Brunt, but Blackburn
had few problems seeing out
the win.

Queens Park Rangers beat
Coventry 2-1 on Sunday to
extend the London team's lead
in the second-tier League
Championship to five points.

Winger Wayne Routledge
scored the winner in his first
game since rejoining QPR on
loan from Premier League side
Newcastle.

Rodgers leads Pack to Super Bowl
they beat Chicago Bears 21-14







(AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast)
TOUCHDOWN: Chicago Bears quarterback Caleb Hanie (12) cele-
brates a touchdown with Earl Bennett (80) during the second half of
the NFC Championship NFL football game against the Green Bay
Packers Sunday, Jan. 23, 2011, in Chicago.

CHRIS JENKINS,
AP Sports Writer
CHICAGO

There was one Monster of the Midway in the NFC champi-
onship game and his name was Aaron Rodgers.

He wasn't even at his best and, still, he was better than the
first, the second and the third quarterback used in vain by the
Chicago Bears against their bitter rivals.

Rodgers ran for a score and made a TD-saving tackle in leading
the Green Bay Packers into the Super Bowl with a bone-jarring 21-
14 victory Sunday over Chicago.

"It's an incredible feeling,” Rodgers said. "I'm at a loss for
words.”

Rodgers played well enough to keep the Bears off balance all
afternoon, Green Bay punter Tim Masthay kept Devin Hester
under wraps and the Packers’ superb defense took care of the
rest in knocking the Bears out of the playoffs.

It was the 182nd meeting in the league's most historic feud,
and the stakes had never been bigger.

Now the Packers (13-6) are headed to Dallas. And no matter
what happens in the Super Bowl on Feb. 6, the Packers and their
fans hold ultimate bragging rights over their foes to the south.
Green Bay will play the winner of Sunday night's AFC title game
between the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers.

"We made a play to win the game and that's all that matters,"
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews said. "Keep playing defense the
way we know how, and it's going to be tough for teams to beat us."

All Jay Cutler could do was watch, having left the game with a
knee injury early in the third quarter. Even before the injury,
Cutler was having trouble moving the ball. Worse, he was getting
booed by the home fans.

Primary backup Todd Collins replaced Cutler and was jeered
even worse. Then little-known backup Caleb Hanie and the Bears
(12-6) actually made it a game.

Chicago's third-string quarterback rallied the Bears for a touch-
down drive to cut the lead to 14-7 after Chester Taylor's 1-yard
touchdown run early in the fourth quarter.

Hanie had a chance to tie the game after the Bears’ defense final-
ly got a few stops, but threw a ball straight to Packers defensive
lineman B.J. Raji, who lumbered 18 yards into the end zone for a
touchdown to give the Packers a 21-7 lead.

But Hanie wasn't finished. He threw a 35-yard touchdown pass (AP Photo/Kiichiro Sato)

to Earl Bennett to again cut the lead to seven points with 4:43 left. pagg TIME: Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler (6) throws a pass as teammate Roberto Garza (63) blocks a Green Bay Packers defend-

threw a fourth-down interception to Sam Shields — the rookie's
second of the game.

Now all those Pro Bowl voters who didn't think Rodgers was
worthy can relax. They're off the hook. Rodgers will be headed to
the Super Bowl instead.

Rodgers proved ready for the biggest day of his brief but impres-
sive career as the successor to Brett Favre, even if his final stat line
didn't look impressive after an ugly, hard-fought game.

He threw for 244 yards with two interceptions — a disappoint-
ment, given how well he had played lately. But his play in the first
half was good enough to put the Bears in a two-touchdown hole,
boggling a good defense that suddenly seemed to fall for every play-
action fake.

Chicago was ready for a championship party under sunny skies
and 20-degree temperatures, and went wild from the national
anthem on. But Rodgers quieted them down quickly, marching the
Packers on an opening drive then ended with Rodgers scram-
bling for a score.

The Bears went with a heavy dose of running back Matt Forte
early on, with limited success.

Early in the second quarter, Brandon Jackson faked Brian
Urlacher out for a long gain on a screen pass, and Rodgers’ pass to
Jordy Nelson set up James Starks’ 4-yard touchdown run to give
Green Bay a 14-0 lead.

It was the latest in a series of big moments for Rodgers, who has
earned near-universal praise for the way he has played this season
— especially since sitting out the Packers’ Dec. 19 loss at New Eng-
land because of a concussion.

Rodgers has been on a hot streak ever since, and doing it under
pressure. The Packers would have been out of the playoffs with a
loss in either of their last two regular-season games, including the

Packers players were surprised Cutler didn't come back.

"You know if he doesn't come back it had to be serious, not to

Matthews wasn't sure when Cutler got hurt.

"Kinda wish they would have had Jay in there the whole time the
way things were going,” Matthews said.

Bears coach Lovie Smith grew testy after being asked several
questions about Cutler's injury.

"He hurt his knee and he was out, all right?" Smith said. "There's
nothing else for me to tell you on that. I don't know exactly when
it happened, he couldn't go and that was that."

Attorney dies
after shooting



Member of prominent
Bahamian family gunned
down outside law firm

By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
aturnquest@tribunemedia.net

MEMBERS of a promi-
nent Bahamian family in the
religious and legal communi-
ties are trying to make sense
of the fatal shooting of one
of their own this weekend.

Attorney Dennis Gomez,
the brother of Glenn Gomez,
Comptroller of Customs, and
husband of an acting magis-
trate, was gunned down out-
side his law firm early Satur-
day morning.

Police were said to be
actively investigating the ninth
murder victim for the year,
however up to press time
there were no significant
updates in the matter.

Struck multiple times in
the chest — which severely
damaged vital organs — Mr
Gomez died in hospital that
evening shortly after 9pm. He
was 57 years old.

Damien Gomez, attorney
and cousin of the deceased
said: “He was very badly
injured on Friday night and

the doctor didn’t expect him
to live even as long as he did —
too much damage was done
to his heart and to his lungs.”

According to police, Mr
Gomez had just left his law
firm at York Street off Shirley
Street when he was
approached by two men — one
of whom was armed with a
hand gun — shortly before
2am on Saturday.

Police indicated that Mr
Gomez was accompanied by a
woman at the time of the
shooting, however her con-
nection to the victim is
unclear at this time.

Mr Gomez — who was tak-
en to hospital in a private
vehicle — reportedly received
multiple gunshot wounds to
his body after he struggled
with his attackers.

Family members were said
to believe that the shooting
was an “armed robbery gone
bad,” based on existing infor-
mation, however up to press
time police had not yet con-
firmed a motive. Relatives

‘Carpe Diem’ - seize the day, move ahead

THE old proverb advises the tailor to cut his
coat to suit his cloth.

This is sound advise that would be well for
Bahamians to seriously consider. Speaking at
the recent Bahamas Business Outlook 2011
conference a College of the Bahamas associate
professor, warning of “economic apartheid”,
described this country’s economy as the most
oppressive model that fails to empower and
develop Bahamians. She warned of disastrous
consequences if it is retained. To her it is
essentially an economy of service and con-
sumerism. She advises a diversification that
would embrace the genius of the Bahamian
people.

Prime Minister Ingraham also believes in
diversification, as does Tourism Minister Vin-
cent Vanderpool Wallace. But rather than a
shift completely away from tourism, they both
see enormous opportunities for diversifica-
tion within the system. As the Prime Minister
has said this “strong legitimate desire must
be considered in the context of the reality of
The Bahamas.”

Mr Vanderpool Wallace also believes in
“diversification, but not necessarily in diver-
sification that consumes much debate.” Quot-
ing from a sermon by Monsignor Preston
Moss, who in turn was quoting from Steven
Covey, author of “The 7 Habits of Highly
Effective People”, Mr Vanderpool Wallace
advised: “The main thing is to keep the main
thing the main thing.”

Within the context of the Bahamas the
main thing is tourism, which still presents
tremendous opportunities if diversified.

Jamaica, for example, was endowed with
rich natural resources — bauxite, gypsum,
lime, marble, sand, silica. This provided
Jamaica with many and varied opportunities
for diversification.

Not so the Bahamas. Our lot was to inher-
it an archipelagic nation of beautiful islands,
magnificent clear waters, more beaches than
the Caribbean combined, and a comfortable
climate.

The cloth that our administrators were giv-
en to cut was one of beauty. What does one do
with beauty?

The pirates saw it as a group of islands,
among which they could hide and waylay bul-
lion-laden ships headed for Spain. The wreck-
ers took advantage of the shallow waters, and
the shoals just below the surface that brought

TOA ha

ships to a watery grave and prize money to
their tattered pockets. Then came the winter
tourists, escaping the cold blasts of the north.
And then came Stafford Sands who saw an
opportunity to take this same cloth of beau-
ty— sand, sea and balmy weather — and turn
it into a number one, year-round industry.

What both the Prime Minister and Mr Van-
derpool-

Wallace are saying is that there is much for
Bahamians to develop within that industry,
not forgetting, of course, the opportunities
for agriculture and fisheries to feed ourselves
and our visitors.

“If New Providence and Paradise Island,”
said Mr Vanderpool Wallace, “were a separate
country in our region, it would rank fifth in the
number of stopover visitors, second in the
number of total visitors and first in the number
of cruise passengers in the entire Caribbean.”
What others also find surprising, he said, is that
New Providence and Paradise Island, where
nearly 70 per cent of our population resides,
represents less than 2 per cent of the total
land mass of the Bahamas.

Going further he pointed out that these
two islands — only 2 per cent of the total
Bahamas — would be the third wealthiest
independent country in the western hemi-
sphere in terms of per capita income behind
only the United States and Canada. “If fully
developing only 2 per cent of our islands yields
these kinds of results,” he said, “imagine what
could happen if we began to utilise more of
our natural assets?”

Instead the revenue from these two islands
— with the exception of Freeport, possibly
Abaco and Eleuthera — are spread thin to
support the other islands in the archipelago.

If the other islands could be developed,
and made self sufficient with inter-island com-
merce between all of them; if Bahamians set-
tled in the various island to help in their devel-
opment, instead of flocking to New Provi-
dence; if Bahamians living abroad could see
opportunities that would entice them home
to help in the growth of the islands, what a rich
little country this could be.

Yes, there is room for diversification —
much diversification within the sector itself. It
will take a new generation of well educated
Bahamians to seize the day and lead the way.
We are not at a dead end. There is much yet to
be done.



Are the police
trying to fight
crime or armed
terrorists?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

The headlines in The
Guardian and The Tribune
of today’s date, Thursday,
January 20, 2011, as respec-
tively shown above, were, to
say the least, disturbing.

I am at a loss in trying to
figure out what our police
force is attempting to fight,
crime or armed terrorist?

No one can deny the fact
that crime is escalating at an
alarming rate, by the same
token no one can say that
our police force has found
the answers to the problem;
but stooping to the level of
the criminal element respon-
sible for the situation, is
most certainly not the route
to go,

Trigger happy, Wild West
characters.

John Q Public is still reel-
ing under the effects of a
number of incidents of what
could be termed trigger hap-
py officers who, it appears,
seem to think that to shoot
first and ask questions later
are the reason for them
being issued with a weapon.
The tragic loss of an efficient
crime fighter and an out-
standing member of the
Inspectorate some weeks
ago should have beena
wake-up call to the powers
that be to take a second look
at the methods employed in
the issuing of firearms to
police personnel. Persons
entrusted with the use of
firearms must be carefully
screened in the areas of
character, decision making,
observation, patience and
the ability to reason.

Violence begets
Violence

The Holy Scriptures
reminds us that violence
begets violence, if we were
to take a look at the situa-
tion with regards to the drug
war in Mexico, we will find
the following: The govern-
ments decision to declare an
all-out war on the drug car-
tels is definitely not work-
ing, over thirty plus thou-
sand persons have so far

been executed, mostly secu-
rity personnel and under
cover officers, in the most
horrible fashion imaginable.
It has also been determined
that the drug dealers were
able to out-gun the security
forces, simply because they
were able to purchase supe-
rior fire power. We have
trigger happy thugs on our
streets with AK47’s, superi-
or to police weapons, The
last thing the police should
want is an all-out shooting
war with criminals on our
streets and in our commu-
nities, as innocent citizens
will become the victims of
such folly.

The police mandate and
priorities are: Preservation
of the peace, protection of
life and property, preven-
tion of crime and the detec-
tion of crime.

Operation Rapid strike,
says the commissioner, has
as its main objective the mis-
sion to seek out persons
involved in murders, armed
robberies, possession of ille-
gal firearms, stealing of vehi-
cles, stabbings, breakings
and all other criminal activ-
ities. If those priorities are
the mission of the individ-
ual officers involved in oper-
ation rapid strike, then
please, Mr Commissioner,
tell us what the duties of the
remainder of the force will
be during the operation of
Rapid Strike; explain to
John Q, what has happened
to the mandate that you and
every other member and his
brother of that institution
known as, and called the
RBPF signed in order to
become a member of that
institution. Viz;- T(1)

To preserve the peace in
this nation, (2) To protect
the life and property of its
citizens, (3) The prevention
of crime and (4) The detec-
tion of crime. My dear com-
missioner they have always
been the primary reasons for
the establishment of that
great institution and will
always be for the retention
of it.

If each and every member
of the force focus on their
mandate and identify the
root cause for the escalation

active investigative brain of
years gone by that are avail-
able to you just for the ask-
ing. No one individual,
including you, has the
answers to our crime prob-
lem; but collectively, we can
find some answers.

The dangers of carrying
out one’s mandate by means
of media exposure.

Many modern day leaders
of institutions, corporations
and indeed politicians, find it
fashionable or convenient to
operate through constant
media exposure, this path is
a dangerous one, for it must
be borne in mind that the
media is a two-edged sword.
Never mind the glowing
terms and the well placed
photos; because when you
stumble, falter or fall, they,
the media are always the
first to deliver the coup de
grace to your hapless car-
cass. In fact advertising in
advance your course of
action only defeats its pur-
pose.

We must all remind our-
selves that crime is a social
disease and must be treated
as such.

It is the responsibility of
all of us to unite in an effort
to find a cure for the illness.
In many cases we as a peo-
ple are responsible for cre-
ating the climate that is
responsible for the disease.
In our system we tend to put
the cart before the horse
when it comes to crime, gov-
ernment is the chief culprit
in this scenario.

The millions of dollars put
into new vehicles to add to
an already congestive traf-
fic problem should be spent
in the rehabilitation system,
after school programmes,
trade school for drop-outs
from school, and problem-
atic youths, while upgrading
the community policing pro-
gramme.

Your job, Mr Commis-
sioner, is not and never was
an easy one, it is a thankless
one; but the nettle of the
captain of a ship is not mea-
sured by how he handles his
ship in calm or good weath-
er; but how he does in a hur-
ricane or rough seas.

An autopsy of all pro-
grammes should be carried
out before implementation,
with a view to identifying
flaws and/or loopholes,
remember the buck stops
with you and so will the

On airlines, tourism and
Caribbean integration

insight

By SIR RONALD
SANDERS

(The writer is a Consul-
tant and former Caribbean
Diplomat).

TOWARD the end of
last year as a row raged
between the Board of
Directors of Caribbean Air-
lines Ltd (CAL), owned by
the government of Trinidad
and Tobago, and the Minis-
ter of Transport, Jack
Warner, alarm was
expressed by several com-
mentators at published
reports in Port-of-Spain
that CAL might not pro-
ceed with plans to finalise a
merger with Air Jamaica by
April 30 this year.

These reports emanated
from conflicting statements
credited to the former CAL
Chief Executive Officer,
Tan Brunton, in which he
had publicly declared him-
self fully in support of the
Air Jamaica merger but had
simultaneously advised the
CAL Board not to consum-
mate the deal.

The cause for alarm was
two-fold: The first was the
effect that failure to com-
plete the Air Jamaica deal
would have on _ the
Jamaican government’s
economic support arrange-
ments with the IMF; and
the second was the irrepara-
ble damage that would have
been done to Caribbean
integration if the Trinidad
and Tobago government
left Jamaica deep in distress

WORLD VIEW -

by reneging on the deal. Dr
Eric Williams’ arithmetical
calculation of “One from
ten leaves nought” that
effectively ended the West
Indies Federation, would
undoubtedly have been
invoked again — this time
by Jamaica.

Reassuringly, since then,
the CAL Board has made
it clear that it is in fact pro-
ceeding with the Air
Jamaica transaction. New
planes have been brought
into service and the reopen-
ing of Air Jamaica flights
to London’s Heathrow Air-
port has been announced.

Merger

Like many others in the
region, who place some
store in a truly regional air-
line to ensure that the
Caribbean Community
(CARICOM) countries
have some measure of inde-
pendence from the vagaries
of foreign carriers, I am
gratified that the merger
between CAL and Air
Jamaica is proceeding and
that Jamaica will own
shares in the merged air-
line.

It is to be hoped that this
is a first step in the direction

of a single regionally-owned
airline that will serve all
CARICOM countries not
only for tourists, but also in
the vital area of moving
Caribbean people and
goods around the region as
the regional integration
process is deepened.

This raises the question
of what happens with the
smaller airline, LIAT,
which is essential to inter-
CARICOM transportation
especially for Caribbean
people. For some countries,
LIAT is, indeed, an “essen-
tial” service, for without it,
these countries — especially
Dominica and St Vincent
and the Grenadines -
would have to rely on small,
private airlines that are
insufficient to service their
tourism needs and their
inter-regional trade.

LIAT is owned by three
governments — Antigua and
Barbuda, Barbados and St
Vincent and the
Grenadines. All three are
strapped for cash and if
LIAT is not profitable year
after year, these govern-
ments will have to dip into
their already depleted Trea-
suries to support the airline.
The prospect of that hap-
pening is not good. But, the

SIR RONALD SANDERS

other governments into
whose countries LIAT flies
have shown no interest in
supporting the airline,
largely because they too
don’t have the financial
resources.

In this regard, a merger
between the new CAL
(including Jamaica) and
LIAT would appear to
make good economic sense,
although CAL’s decision to
purchase French ATR air-
craft instead of the Canadi-
an dash-8’s that LIAT has
traditionally flown would
pose a problem of amalga-
mation.

But, even if that prob-
lem was overcome, the fur-
ther difficulty would be
devising a scheme for oper-
ations and service that
would persuade the gov-
ernments of the countries
now served by LIAT that
they would not be at the

mercy of Trinidad-centred
considerations by CAL.
This will require very care-
ful negotiations, diplomatic
skill, and political resolve
to reach and implement a
workable consensus. How
much of this political
resolve exists at the
moment in CARICOM is a
question to which there is
no easy answer.

The answer is made more
difficult by the recent
announcement by CAL that
it will shortly introduce
flights that will compete
with LIAT on some of its
routes. The response of St
Vincent’s Prime Minister
Ralph Gonsalves to this
announcement is instruc-
tive. He says that he is not
opposed “to any competi-
tion for LIAT, but that
competition must be on a
level playing field.”

His latter point may be
an allusion to the fact that
CAL enjoys the facility of
fuel at a price less than the
market price which LIAT
has to pay. Paying less for
fuel will give CAL an
advantage over LIAT in
one of two ways: either by
allowing it to drop its prices
to customers below LIAT?’s,
and, therefore to grab a
larger market share; or by
maintaining the same price
as LIAT and, thereby,
increasing its revenues mak-
ing it more viable than
LIAT. In either scenario,
LIAT will suffer from
CAL’s competition by hav-
ing to share the customers it
now has.

One possibility that
could give a CAL-LIAT

merger credibility and con-
fidence is the involvement
of the International Finance
Corporation (IFC) as a dis-
interested third party with
experience in these matters.
Such a merger should try to
ensure that the present
owners of LIAT end up
with shares and a voice in
the merged CAL operation.

In the meantime, the peo-
ple of CARICOM com-
plain of the high costs of
travel within the region.

Of course, this is not only
because of the charges by
CAL and LIAT for their
fares, but also because of
the taxes that each govern-
ment charges passengers for
the use of their airports.

There has always been a
need to rationalise air trans-
portation within CARI-
COM in ways that serve
tourism and the movement
of people and goods within
the region. That need has
now become urgent.

Dealing with it requires
empathy among CARI-
COM Heads of Govern-
ment and Ministers of
Transport and a firm
resolve to deal with the
issue in ways that would
result around in a regional
consensus.

Can they do it? Yes they
can, if every effort is made
to put aside narrow chau-
vinism, by balancing it with
the other benefits that
regionalism brings to every-
one’s national development.
But, we shall see.

STAY ONE STEP AHEAD!

By MIKE LIGHTBOURN

AS A seller, you’d prefer a nice
clean, unconditional offer at full
price, right? This, of course,
assumes your home is properly
priced. One way to encourage such
confidence among potential pur-
chasers is to have an inspection
report available during showings,
as well as any receipts (or estimates)
for repairs. Why order an inspection
when the purchasers will probably
do so anyway? Because when you
take the initiative and perform
repairs before listing, you are basi-
cally presenting a clean bill of

health for your home.

Prelisting inspections are becom-
ing a popular way to give vendors
an edge in our competitive market. Taking such



action also provides a great opportunity to take

care of problems that otherwise might come back
to bite you. Purchasers today are armed with

more knowledge than in the past,
and they recognise the security
offered when the vendor is forth-
right and demonstrating that there is
nothing to hide.

These are the conditions that are
more likely to produce that uncon-
ditional offer. While it’s probably a
given that the purchaser’s BREA
agent will encourage them to order
their own inspection if the home is
not in top condition, you also have a
greater sense of confidence know-
ing that there won’t be any surprises.

If you have any doubts about
whether a prelisting inspection will
improve your chances for an early
sale, discuss it with your BREA rep-
resentative, who will also undoubt-
edly have many other suggestions
for successfully marketing your home.

Egypt accuses Gaza militants of
being behind Coptic church bomb

CAIRO
Associated Press

EGYPT'S top security offi-
cial accused an al-Qaida-
inspired group in the Gaza Strip
on Sunday of being behind the
New Year's Day suicide bomb-
ing that killed 21 people out-
side a Coptic Christian church
in the Mediterranean port city
of Alexandria.

Interior Minister Habib al-
Adly said conclusive evidence
showed the shadowy Army of
Islam in the Palestinian terri-
tory was behind the planning
and execution of the attack,
which sparked three days of
Christian rioting in Cairo and
several other cities. It was the
deadliest attack against Chris-
tians in Egypt in more than a
decade.

There has been no claim of
responsibility for the bombing,
which added to years of
strained relations between
Egypt's sizable Coptic minority
and the country's Muslims. The
government, eager to keep the
sectarian tension under control,
almost immediately blamed for-
eign elements for the attack.

The Army of Islam dismissed
Sunday's accusations on an
extremist website, and the
Hamas militants who control
Gaza and have themselves bat-
tled with the smaller group was
also skeptical of the Egyptian
claim.

Al-Adly said the group is
believed to have recruited
Egyptians in the planning and
execution of the attack, but that
this could not conceal the role it
played in the "callous and ter-
rorist” act.

An Interior Ministry state-
ment later identified 26-year-
old Alexandria resident Ahmed
Lotfi Ibrahim as a lead suspect
in the attack, saying he was
recruited by the Army of Islam
when he sneaked across the
border into the Gaza Strip in
2008.

It said operatives from the
Army of Islam tasked him with
monitoring Christian and Jew-
ish places of worship in Alexan-
dria. Last October, the state-
ment said, Ibrahim identified
two churches, including the one
attacked on New Year's Day,
as likely targets and sent his
handlers photographs of the
two.

He was told in December
that "elements" have been sent
to carry out the attack, the
statement said without elabo-
rating.

Security officials said earlier
on Sunday that at least five
Egyptians have been detained
in connection with the Alexan-
dria bombing. They said the
suspects have given investiga-
tors a full account of how they
were contacted and eventually
recruited by the Army of Islam.
It was not immediately clear
whether Ahmed, a university
graduate who subscribed to the

ee

cause of jihad through the
Internet, was one of those
detained.

The officials spoke on con-
dition of anonymity because
they were not authorized to
share the information with the
media.

The Army of Islam is esti-
mated to have several dozen
operatives committed, like al-
Qaida, to the ideas of a global
jihad.

The group seceded from the
Hamas-linked Popular Resis-
tance Committees in 2005 and
currently has no ties with that
group.

In 2008, Hamas unleashed a
deadly crackdown on it, storm-
ing its stronghold and killing 13
of its members and prompting
it to since keep a low profile.

The Army of Islam is
thought to have participated in
the kidnappings of Israeli sol-
dier Sgt. Gilad Schalit in 2006
and BBC journalist Alan John-
ston, who was later released.

Late last year, Israel killed
three members of the group in
separate airstrikes, alleging the
men had planned to attack
Israeli and American targets in
Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

"The Army of Islam in the
land of Ribat (Palestine) denies
the allegation made by the
Egyptian regime about our
relation with the attack in the
city of Alexandria,” it said in
an Internet posting.

Hamas, which has ruled
Gaza since 2007, voiced doubts
and asked Cairo to provide evi-
dence to back up its charge.
"We call on the Egyptian
brothers to provide evidence
and information to the govern-
ment in Gaza about these accu-
sations. We deny the existence
of al-Qaida in the Gaza Strip
and we reaffirm that the Egypt-
ian national security is our
national security,” said Taher
Nunu, Hamas government
spokesman.

Suspicion for the Alexandria
bombing had fallen almost
immediately on some kind of
al-Qaida-linked local organiza-
tion after the terror group's
branch in Iraq vowed to attack
Christians in Iraq and Egypt
over the cases of two Egyptian
Christian women who sought
to convert to Islam. The
women, who were married to
priests in the Coptic Orthodox
Church, were prohibited from
divorcing their husbands and
sought to convert as a way out.

The women have since been
secluded by the Coptic Church,
prompting Islamic hard-liners
in Egypt to accuse the Church
of imprisoning them and forc-
ing them to renounce Islam.
The Church denies the allega-
tion.

and top police officials.

In a separate address,
Mubarak vowed that his gov-
ernment will "triumph over ter-
ror” and that he will do his
utmost to maintain unity
between Egyptians. About 10
percent of Egypt's 80 million
people are Christians.

"T will not be lenient with
any sectarian actions from
either side and will confront
their perpetrators with the
might and decisiveness of the
law," warned Mubarak, Egypt's
ruler of nearly 30 years.

Mubarak also lashed out
against calls made in the West,
including by Pope Benedict
XVI, for the need to protect
the Christians of the Middle
East after the Alexandria
bombing and attacks against
Christians in Iraq.

Israeli inquiry:
Flotilla raid,
blockade legal

JERUSALEM
Associated Press

AN ISRAELI panel on
Sunday cleared the military
and government of any
wrongdoing during last
year's deadly raid on a Gaza-
bound international flotilla,
but the finding appeared
unlikely to repair damage to
Israel's standing.

Nine pro-Palestinian
activists, eight Turkish citi-
zens and a Turkish Ameri-
can, were killed as Israeli
commandos boarded one of
the ships in the flotilla, the
Mavi Marmara, last May 31.
The report said the armed
defense of Israel's maritime
blockade of the Hamas-
ruled coastal strip was justi-
fied under international law.

A wave of international
condemnation of the raid
forced Israel to ease the
blockade.

The incident damaged
relations with Turkey and
led the U.N. chief to order
an international investiga-
tion. Turkey swiftly con-
demned Sunday's report,
saying it was “surprised,
appalled and dismayed."

Israeli Prime Minister
Benjamin Netanyahu
praised the inquiry.

"I hope all those who
rushed to judgment against
Israel and its soldiers will
read this report and learn
the truth about what hap-
pened," Netanyahu said.
"The truth is that our sol-
diers were defending our
country — and defending
their very lives."

The nearly 300-page
report echoed an earlier mil-
itary investigation that fault-
ed the planning and execu-
tion of the operation. Even
so, it said the blockade of
Gaza and the raid were legal
and justified.

"The actions carried out
by Israel on May 31, 2010,

FORMER ISRAELI SUPREME COURT JUSTICE Jacob Turkel heads
a press conference of the Turkel commission, an inquiry set up by
the Israeli Government to investigate the Gaza flotilla raid, in

Jerusalem, Sunday. (AP)

to enforce the naval block-
ade had the regrettable con-
sequences of the loss of
human life and physical
injuries," read the report.
Nonetheless, "the actions
taken were found to be legal
pursuant to the rules of
international law."

The flotilla aimed to bring
attention to the blockade of
Gaza, which Israel imposed
after Hamas militants cap-
tured an Israeli soldier in
2006 and tightened after
Hamas seized control of the
territory the following year.

Israel said the blockade
was needed to prevent
Hamas, an armed group that
has fired thousands of rock-
ets at Israel, from building
up its arsenal. Critics have
noted the blockade did lit-
tle to weaken Hamas or halt
weapons smuggling, while

causing widespread eco-
nomic hardship and short-
ages of foods and other basic
items.

Israeli forces were sent to
commandeer the ships
before dawn after the flotil-
la ignored radio warnings to
turn back and refused an
offer to dock at an Israeli
port and transfer humani-
tarian aid into Gaza over-
land. One of the ships
radioed to the Israelis to "go
back to Auschwitz," accord-
ing to a military recording
cited in the report.

Five small ships were com-
mandeered without incident,
but soldiers rappelling from
helicopters onto the deck of
the Marmara, with some 600
passengers on board, were
attacked by several dozen
activists armed with bars,
slingshots and knives as they

IN THIS MAY 31, 2010 FILE PHOTO the Mavi Marmara ship, the lead boat of a flotilla headed to the
Gaza Strip which was stormed by Israeli naval commandos in a predawn confrontation, sails into the
port of Ashdod, Israel. An Israeli inquiry commission defended the actions of the country's troops dur-
ing last year's deadly raid on a Gaza-bound protest flotilla sailing from Turkey, finding in a report

released Sunday, Jan. 23, 2011, that Israel had not violated international law.

landed on deck one by one,
according to video footage
released by the military.

The Israelis, caught off
guard, were beaten, and
some were thrown onto a
lower deck.

According to Sunday's
report, two soldiers were
shot, apparently with
weapons wrested from the
Israelis.

Both soldiers and activists
have said they acted in self-
defense.

The flotilla was organized
by an Islamic aid group from
Turkey known by the
acronym IHH. Israel banned
THH, which has ties to
Turkey's Islamic-oriented
government, in 2008 because
of alleged ties to Hamas.

Turkey, formerly one of
Israel's closest allies, recalled
its ambassador to Israel after
the incident, and ties
between the former allies
have not recovered.

An official Turkish com-
mission investigating the
incident condemned the
Israeli findings Sunday, say-
ing the blockade amounted
to illegal "collective punish-
ment” of Gaza's 1.5 million
people. It also accused Israel
of using unnecessary and
excessive force.

"Our commission is sur-
prised, appalled and dis-
mayed that the national

inquiry process in Israel has
resulted in the exoneration
of the Israeli armed forces,"
it said.

In New York, U.N.
spokesman Martin Nesirky
said investigators there had
received a copy of the Israeli
report.

"As you know, to help
complete their important
mandate it is essential for
the (U.N.) panel to review
material provided by both
sides, Israel and Turkey," he
said.

Israel was forced by the
outcry to ease the blockade.
Virtually all foods and con-
sumer goods can now enter
Gaza. But restrictions on
many exports and the import
of badly needed construc-
tion goods remain in place.

Israel ordered the official
inquiry two weeks after the
incident.

The commission, headed
by retired Supreme Court
justice Jacob Turkel, includ-
ed four Israeli members and
two international observers
— David Trimble, a Nobel
peace laureate from North-
ern Ireland, and Brig. Gen.
Ken Watkin, Canada's for-
mer chief military prosecu-
tor. All signed off on the
conclusions.

A fifth Israeli participant,
93-year-old international law
expert Shabtai Rosenne,

Ariel Schalit, File/AP

died during the delibera-
tions.

Looking at 133 individual
cases in which soldiers used
force — 16 of them involving
shooting to kill — the com-
mission found soldiers had
acted properly and that their
lives had been in danger.
The soldiers, the report said,
"acted professionally in the
face of extensive and unan-
ticipated violence."

The report was based on
the testimony of Israeli offi-
cials, including the prime
minister, defense minister
and military chief. It also
looked at testimony from
soldiers gathered by the mil-
itary and 1,000 hours of
video footage taken from the
military, the Marmara and
its passengers.

The commission said
activists on board the ship
refused invitations to testi-

Alan Baker, a former legal
adviser to Israel's Foreign
Ministry, said the commit-
tee's makeup gave the report
international credibility, but
the findings would have little
impact on Israel's critics.

"I doubt very much
whether it will make an
impression on those ele-
ments of the international
community who are pushing
the anti-Israel hostility,” he
said.

Bahamas residents
deny all allegations
over $615k ‘fraud’

ing in both himself and Gaye Knowles resigning as directors of
Ameron Oil and Gas, which was incorporated as a Bahamian
IBC on November 28, 2007. It was initially called American Oil
& Gas Resources, before being renamed Ameron on June 10,
2009.

The Ontario Securities Commission, on December 13, 2010,
charged the three Bahamas-based residents, together with four
Canadians - Vadim Tsatskin, Mark Grinshpun, Oded Pasternak
and Allan Walker - with breaching the Canadian state’s secu-
rities laws by offering securities in MX-IV Ltd, a purported
Bahamian limited partnership, to investors.

The Commission alleged that the offering, which had Ameron
Oil and Gas as its issuer, program manager and operator of
MX-IV, was illegal and unauthorised because no prospectus or
offering document was filed with it.

And the regulator claimed that some $615,000 was raised
from the sale of MX-IV units between June 2009-April 2010,
based on alleged fraudulent information from the four Cana-
dians that was “false, inaccurate and misleading”.

The Ontario Securities Commission alleged that among the
false information provided to investors was that wells were in
production; Ameron had a 90 per cent success rate on previous
projects; the return on investment in the MX-IV units would
come within 90 days of investing; and that the net proceeds from
the MX-IV unit sales would be reinvested in new well drilling.

“The directing minds of Ameron knew or ought to have
known that aliases were being used when the MX-IV units
were sold to members of the public by the salespersons, rep-
resentatives or agents of Ameron,” the Ontario Securities
Commission alleged.

“Approximately 19 per cent of the MX-IV investors’ funds
were paid to the Ameron salespersons involved in selling the
MX-IV units to the MX-IV investors. The MX-IV investors
were not informed of this fact.”

Allegation

The only specific allegation made against Mr Howorth and
the Knowles’s are that as officers and directors of Ameron, they
“authorised and permitted” the conduct engaged in. Gaye
Knowles was alleged to be Ameron’s president and chief exec-
utive, while Giorgio Knowles was its secretary. Mr Howorth was
alleged to be the company’s vice-president.

Emphatically denying that the allegations were true against
of the three, Mr Howorth told Tribune Business that Canadi-
an attorneys had been hired to defend them against the Ontario
Securities Commission’s allegations.

“The facts are that I agreed to act as a director for the com-
pany with Mr Gaye Knowles, who was originally approached by
a client to form and manage a Bahamas IBC with that name
[Ameron],” Mr Howorth told this newspaper via e-mail.

“Tt was made clear in writing to the beneficial owner of the
company that any investment transactions carried out in the
name of the company by him or his associates must be approved
by the directors.

“He advised that he had consulted a Canadian lawyer who
had made an application on behalf of the company to the
Canadian Securities Commission to have the company
approved to sell securities in Canada. The client was warned in
writing not to commence any such sales unless and until such
approval was granted.

“Immediately Mr Knowles and I were advised that these
instructions were ignored, we resigned as directors of the com-
pany.”

Mr Howorth added: “I am afraid this is an example of the
client taking matters into his own hands and using an IBC to
hide his illegal actions.

“This should not have any adverse effect on our business, as
we have acted responsibly within the law. The illegal acts took
place outside our control by persons in Canada, none of whom
were authorised to so act by the company.”

changes are necessary to keep
the Bahamas competitive as
a destination for gamblers.

Mr Markantonis’ comments
come after Jamaica’s minis-
ter of tourism, Edmund
Bartlett, spoke to the world’s
media at the recent Caribbean
Marketplace tourism trade
show, which took place in
Montego Bay last week,
about his government’s “casi-
no dream”.

He revealed that Jamaica
intends to grant three casino
licenses this yea,r and is tak-
ing applications for others,
with the expectation that each
casino could bring in $40 mil-
lion in revenue to the Gov-
ernment annually.

Mr Markantonis said he
sees this development as a
“big problem” for the
Bahamas, and a “bigger
issue” than the fact that the
Jamaican government has
also just opened a state-of-
the-art convention centre -
the Caribbean’s largest - in
Montego Bay in the hopes of
gaining a greater share of this
lucrative tourism market that
the Bahamas, and Atlantis
especially, has traditionally
benefited from.

“T do think that will be a
problem for us - I am not
going to hide it. If they do
approve all these mega-resort
casino licenses there, it’s just
more casinos coming right on
our doorstep.

‘RAPID’ NATIONAL ENERGY POLICY ROLL-OUT URGED

FROM page 1B

between the US and the
Bahamas.

With Crowley and
Seaboard Marine, two key
members of the Florida-
Bahamas Shipowners &
Operators Association,
revealing that the increases
will apply to all imports and
exports carried between the
Bahamas and US as of Feb-
ruary 20 this year, Khaalis
Rolle, the Bahamas Cham-
ber of Commerce and
Employers Confederation’s
(BCCEC) chairman, warned
this nation’s economy would
face “serious problems” if
oil prices rose at the same
rate as in 2008.

Crowley and Seaboard
Marine said the move had
been forced by the rising
cost of bunker fuel, which
mirrors oil prices, and had
risen by over $500 per met-
ric ton.

The Journal of Commerce
Online reported: “The two
carriers said they will
increase the bunker sur-
charge $66 on 20-foot equiv-
alent units, $132 on 40-foot
equivalent units and $149 on
all equipment over 40 feet.”

Acknowledging that there
was little the Bahamas could
do to directly influence glob-
al oil prices, Mr Rolle told
Tribune Business that com-
panies and households had
to focus on “ways to man-
age our energy consump-
tion”.

Agreeing with Prime Min-
ister Hubert Ingraham that
rising commodities prices,
especially food and energy,
posed a major threat to the
Bahamian economy’s grad-
ual recovery from recession,
the Chamber chief said that
among ways to mitigate the
impact from oil price

increases were for the Gov-
ernment to reduce its taxes
on fuel. This the Ingraham
administration is unlikely to
do, given the present fiscal
crisis and Treasury desire to
lay its hands on every cent
of possible revenue, espe-
cially given that fuel taxes
are among just four items
that generate almost 40 per
cent of the Government’s
annual revenues.

But, alternatively, Mr
Rolle called on Bahamian
companies with the cash
means to follow the likes of
Super Value and ‘hedge’
against rising energy and
transportation costs by bulk
buying inventory in advance.
And he urged the Govern-
ment to get on with imple-
menting the National Ener-
gy Policy, arguing it would
provide a ‘road map’ to
reduce this nation’s fossil
fuel dependence.

“There’s not much we can
do to impact oil prices
because they’re outside our
scope of influence, but we
need to find some way to
mitigate and manage what’s
about to take place,” Mr
Rolle told Tribune Business.

“It’s easy for me to say,
but the Government has to
look at the tax structure on
fuel. That’s one area we can
look at.” Yet the Govern-
ment’s tax take actually
increases as fuel prices rise,
thanks to the 7 per cent
Stamp Duty per gallon
imposed on landed fuel,
while it also takes a $1.16
per gallon flat rate tax to
book.

Given that the Govern-
ment is unlikely to accept a
reduced tax take from fuel,
Mr Rolle added: “There has
to be some sort of hedging
that takes place, especially
for companies that are fuel

dependent. We’re already
talking about inflation
derived from food costs, and
that’s a major concern.
Super Value’s intention is
to hedge, and I think that’s a
good strategy. If you have
the capacity to hedge, you'd
better do it. During the last
oil price spike, Super Value
was one of the firms able to
manage it relatively easily
as their strategy focused on
hedging, purchasing in bulk
up front.”

Still, Mr Rolle said many
Bahamian companies, espe-
cially small and medium-
sized businesses that oper-
ated on “a very tight bud-
get”, with “cash in, cash
out”, would find it impossi-
ble to employ a hedging
strategy. And, illustrating
just how much the Bahamas’
was at the mercy of oil spec-
ulators and financial traders,
Mr Rolle recounted being
told that one Alaskan oil
pipeline being taken out of
service for temporary
repairs resulted in a $3
increase in global oil prices,
as speculators pushed
unwarranted concerns about
a drop in global supply.

“There’s no real rhyme or
reason about this,” Mr Rolle
told Tribune Business.
“That’s why it’s important
we've got to go after the
National Energy Policy, and
the Government cannot
delay rolling this out. It is
an imperative, it is a must.

“The Bahamas needs to
start weaning ourselves of
fossil fuels, and even though
the transition is an expen-
sive one, the tragedy lies in
not pursuing this relatively
quickly. I think that’s an
even more expensive propo-
sition. It’s important that the
long awaited and much-
delayed National Energy

Policy has to be implement-
ed and executed.”

The Chamber chairman
said the pace of work on
developing a National Ener-
gy Policy seemed to have
slowed over the last two
years, as global oil prices fell
back down to more normal
levels, the 2008 price shocks
having sparked the Govern-
ment into action.

“We went at kind of a fre-
netic pace initially, because
we were going through a dif-
ficult period of ever-increas-
ing prices, and that has
slowed somewhat because
the storm slowed, but that
storm is forming again,” Mr
Rolle added. “We just need
to find ways to manage our
energy consumption.”

Warning that the
Bahamas was “headed down
the same slippery slope” of
rising oil prices that took it
into one of the worst mod-
ern recessions, he said: “If
the rate of oil price increas-
es becomes steep and large,
we're going to have a serious
problem. I don’t know if
there’s going to be any hope
for recovery.”

Mr Rolle said that with
many Bahamian firms hav-
ing come through one of the
most difficult trading peri-
ods they will ever face, their
ability - and that of their cus-
tomers - to absorb energy
price rises in their cost struc-
ture was limited.

“It’s going to depend on
the individual firm and their
ability to absorb it and pass
it on. If you absorb it, how
long can your business sur-
vive, and if you pass it on
how much more is the con-
sumer going to take, and
what’s that going to do to
your business?” asked Mr
Rolle.

throughout the economy.

“Normally in November
we have staff working one
or two days a week. This will
mean we will need all hands
on deck,” said Mr Markan-
tonis of Atlantis.

He was speaking at a
press conference to official-
ly announce the Bahamas
having won a vote to receive
National Collegiate Athlet-
ic Association (NCAA)
‘exempt status’ last week,
which will attract college
basketball teams to play in
this nation because they will
no longer be subject to sanc-

tions for doing so, and can
see any wins or losses count
towards their season record.

Atlantis, the Ministries of
Tourism and Sports, the
Bahamas Basketball Feder-
ation and others have all
lobbied for the Bahamas to
receive the coveted ‘exempt
status’ for 14 months.

With this achieved, Mr
Markantonis predicted that
the ‘Battle 4 Atlantis’ will
become “the premier pre-
season basketball tourna-
ment” in the NCAA sched-
ule, following in the foot-
steps of “brand name” pre-
season basketball tourna-
ments such as Hawaii’s

Maui Invitational.

The event comes on the
heels of the ‘Battle at
Atlantis’ double-header
tournament on December
18 last year, the success of
which was credited by
Bahamas Basketball Feder-
ation president, Lawrence
Hepburn, with “putting the
Bahamas over the hump”
towards winning the votes
needed to secure the status.

giving tournament will be

Mr Markantonis said:

it makes sense to travel with
the family and catch a few
days on top of the basket-
ball and see Nassau,” added
Mr Markantonis.

With cight teams coming
with their officials, friends
and families, Mr Markanto-
nis said this alone could
bring around 1,500 people
to the Bahamas. Add to this
other fans who will pay to
come and stay in Nassau to
see the games, and thou-
sands more are anticipated.

Ballroom

The ballroom, which
Atlantis spent $500,000 con-
verting into an NCAA-reg-
ulation compliant basketball
arena for the 2010 tourna-
ment, will be expanded from
2,500 to 4,500 seats to
accommodate the bigger
annual Thanksgiving events
which are now in the
pipeline, while an additional
ballroom will be converted
into a practice court prior to
the ‘Battle 4 Atlantis’.

Mr Markantonis said
Kerzner International has
received significant interest
already from college bas-
ketball teams who want to
participate in the ‘Battle 4

Atlantis’ this year and going
forward.

“We have numerous
teams speaking to us about
2012, 2013.

“In fact, we are booking
teams even for 2015 now. I
can tell you that as good as
2011 is going to be, you’d be
shocked at what we have
coming in 2012, it’s just a
major line-up. Everyone is
fighting to come to this tour-
nament,” said Mr Markan-
tonis.

“A lot of it is because
besides being the premier
pre-season basketball tour-
nament, it will also be the
richest within the NCAA
guidelines, whether in terms
of scholarships or athletic
department donations or
whatever it is. We have suf-
ficient sponsors that will
help us cover all of these
expenses.

Meanwhile, another boost
could come in the form of
NBA teams coming to play
at the resort’s facilities in the
future.

“Three teams have been
in touch with us. We are
postponing those conversa-
tions for now because we
have one priority at the
moment,” said Mr Markan-
tonis.

Besides the attention the
resort and the Bahamas will
receive directly from those
traveling to the country to
participate in or attend the
tournament, Mr Markanto-
nis said Atlantis is in discus-
sions with “several media
houses” about television
coverage for the event.

“They have come to us to
talk about broadcasting
these games live in the US,
which is how you also attract
top teams,” said Mr
Markantonis.

‘State-of-the-art addition’ to air conditioning industry



1 TTA cn



IN THE PINK: Mark Roberts, Builders Mall owner, and Chris Knowles, owner of AC Depot, pictured
with the Pink Panther at the International Builders show in Orlando, Florida, last week. The Air Conditioning
Depot, a new full-service parts and supplies store is a state-of-the-art addition to Builders Mall on Wulff
Road. Pink Panther is an Owens Corning character that symbolises the company’s insulation line of prod-

ucts that are pink.

THE Air Conditioning
Depot, a new full-service
parts and supplies store locat-
ed at the Builders Mall on
Wulff Road, is a state-of-the-
art addition not to the
Builders Mall family, but to
the air conditioning industry
in The Bahamas.

Having recently attended
the International Builders
Show in Orlando, Florida, the
largest show of its kind, the
partners of Air Conditioning
Depot were able to gain first
hand knowledge of the cur-
rent industry status, as well
as establish relationships with
industry contacts and key
companies.

The AC Depot, as it is
more commonly known,
opened in the summer of
2010, and since then, has
already become a leader in
air conditioning equipment,
parts, and supplies. Specializ-
ing in high SEER equipment,
its energy efficient, economic
Tempstar line is one of its
best-sellers, and making a
name for itself among air con-
ditioning name brands in The

Bahamas. Tempstar is actu-
ally owned by the same par-
ent as Carrier — a well-known,
long-standing air condition-
ing name — and therefore car-
ries with it a history of relia-
bility, efficiency and comfort.
The AC Depot also distrib-
utes the Carrier and Good-
man lines, and prides itself on
the variety of sizes of equip-
ment and their SEER ratings.

For those unsure of what
SEER is, the acronym stands
for Seasonal Energy Efficien-
cy Rating. In simple terms, it
is a Measurement used to
determine how much elec-
tricity (or energy) an air con-
ditioner uses in exchange for
how much cooling it puts out.
The higher the SEER, the less
electricity the AC uses, there-
fore making it less expensive
to run. The caveat here, is
that the initial cost to pur-
chase a high SEER air con-
ditioning is more than your
average, basic, air conditioner,
but the savings over time is
in the neighbourhood of 50
per cent and statistics have
shown that the investment

pays itself back after the first
year. For example, the aver-
age person in The Bahamas
will purchase a 10 SEER unit,
as opposed to a 14, 15 or 16
SEER unit. Most people only
look at the initial cost to pur-
chase and install a unit and
not the cost of operating that
unit. Under current U.S. law,
the minimum SEER rating
permitted is 13 SEER. With a
similar climate to that of
South Florida's, The Bahamas
should implement, at the very
least, a similar standard. The
reason most people do not
purchase high SEER equip-
ment is that they just don't
know that the alternatives
exists. This is another area in
which the Air Conditioning
Depot will make a positive
change and help the environ-
ment.

Beginning this summer, the
AC Depot plans to team up
with BTVI and offer summer
workshops for its students.
They have also started a local
contractor/installer sign-up
programme, in which they
plan to offer informational
sessions on new and cutting
edge equipment and tech-
nologies.

AC Depot not only ser-
vices the air conditioning
industry and its contractors,
but also consumers directly,
with their wide array of prod-
ucts including ductless units,
tools and filters.

est related to sports tourism.

"Events are being estab-
lished, and we are projecting
that sports tourism has the
potential to make a big dent in
the loss of that corporate busi-
ness that our major hotels lost.
We feel very strongly about it,”
Mr Johnson said.

“We are on track, and we are
particularly pleased that Tyrone
[Sawyer, director of sports
tourism at the Ministry of
Tourism] and his team have
made progress with the Min-
istry of Youth and Sports and
the sector, and that we are get-
ting much traction and seeing
signfiicant growth groups result-
ing from sports tourism. And
that's not just to Nassau and
Paradise Island, but to Abaco,
San Salvador, Grand Bahama.”

IN THE MATTER OF The Petition of
RONALD BUTTERFIELD

NOTICE

Ronald Butterfield claims to be the owner in fee
simple of the said land free from encumbrances
and has made application to the Supreme Court in
the Commonwealth of The Bahamas under section
3 of the Quieting Titles Act 1959 to have his title to
the said land investigated and the nature and extent
thereof determined and declared in a Certificate of
Title to be granted by the Court in accordance with
the provisions of the said Act.

A plan of the said land may be inspected during
normal office hours in the following places:

a) The Registry of the Supreme Court in the City of
Nassau;

b) The Chambers of J. Michael Saunders, East Bay
Shopping Centre, Nassau, Bahamas, Attorneys for
the Petitioner.

NOTICE is hereby given that any person having



of the opinion that sports-relat-
ed visits to the Bahamas "could
overtake the conventions mar-

ket as a vehicle to bring peo-
ple who ordinarily wouldn’t
travel to the Bahamas on vaca-
tion to the Bahamas”.

He and Mr Johnson, along
with Kerzner International
(Bahamas) president and man-
aging director, George Markan-
tonis, and Bahamas Basketball
Federation president, Lawrence
Hepburn, were speaking at a
press conference on Friday to
discuss the granting of Nation-
al Collegiate Athletic Associa-
tion (NCAA)" exempt status"
to the Bahamas, which will
allow college basketball teams
to play in the Bahamas with-
out being subject to sports sanc-
tions, and seeing their wins and
losses added to their school sea-
son record.

The victory, after 14 months
of lobbying, paves the way for
the ‘Battle 4 Atlantis’ eight
team-tournament at Atlantis at
Thanksgiving this year - a major
tourism draw - and, according
to Mr Maynard and others,

"opens up more possibilities”,
helping to "propel our sports
tourism initiative to the next
level”.

"It also opens the door for
us to further penetrate the mar-
ket and try to get other sporting
disciplines to follow suit, and
try to get exempt status as
well...This is a wonderful thing
for the Bahamas overall," said
Mr Maynard.

He added that the Govern-
ment is keen to make good use
of the new national stadium,
set for completion this year,
with any major international
sporting attractions held there
also set to produce spin-off ben-
efits for Bahamian hotels and
other services.

Asked specifically what
sporting events are set to come
to this nation this year, Mr
Sawyer declined to "make
announcements for other peo-
ple", but said there is "quite a
bit on the drawing board" for
2011.

He mentioned the Tour of
the Bahamas cycling race,
which is due to take place at
the end of this month, organ-
ised by Holowesko Partners, as
one example of such attrac-
tions.

The race draws numerous
cyclists from both the Bahamas
and abroad to participate in the
three-day long event. Mr
Markantonis revealed that
Atlantis also has a "major ten-
nis tournament" planned for
this year, and would love to
work on projects to bring big
sports events to the national
stadium.

He said Kerzner Interna-
tional has been, and will con-
tinue, to lobby for PGA (Pro-
fessional Golfers Association
of America) ‘exempt status’ in
the hope of attracting more
international golfing events to
the Bahamas.

The BBF's president, Mr
Hepburn, calling the newly-
announced NCAA ‘exempt sta-
tus’ a "dream come true" for
the BBF, noted that it will not
only pave the way for Atlantis
to host the ‘Battle 4 Atlantis’,
but for more BBF organised

“We have been running
behind people to assist us with
this but today we have it.

“Tt hurt my heart to know we
sit right next to the US but we
couldn’t put on a good enough
tournament to attract a crowd
from abroad, as good as a Maui

son basketball tournament held
in Hawaii).

"It was a splended job on
December 18, and I think that
put everything over the hump.
Now I know the Federation is
going to have numerous peo-
ple calling.

“We have already heard
from several big schools. We
are just excited and delighted,”
said Mr Hepburn.

Mr Maynard added that the
Government is set to debate
the Sports Authority Bill in
Parliament, which will estab-
lish a sports authority to "give
you the real mechanism for the
proper development of sports
tourism, and the proper man-
agement and promotion of

Newest economic indicator:

companies buying iPads

DAVID K. RANDALL,
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK

The news last week that
Apple's Steve Jobs is taking a
leave of absence was a big sto-
ry. But something else about
the company got far less atten-
tion and could be even more
important to investors this year.

Corporations "are adding
iPads to their approved device
list at an amazing rate," Peter
Oppenheimer, Apple Inc.'s
chief financial officer, told ana-
lysts Tuesday. Apple's prod-
ucts, more known for their con-
sumer appeal, are now used in
by employees of Wells Fargo,
Archer Daniels Midland,
DuPont and others.

Splurging on $500 iPads is a
sign that the business cycle is
starting to turn and that com-
panies are starting to spend a
record amount of cash they've
accumulated. If the trend is
real, companies will do what
consumers haven't -- spark a
strong economic recovery. That
could push the Standard &
Poor's 500 index to its third
straight year of double-digit
percentage gains. The last time
that happened: the tech-boom
days of the late 1990s.

"You're going to see a big-
ger commitment to growth this
year because companies have
underspent for quite some
time," says Bill Stone, chief
investment strategist at PNC
Asset Management.

Financial, technology and
energy companies are the most
likely to benefit from business
spending, says David Bianco, a
market strategist at Bank of
America. Each group is up
about 3 percent this year, near-
ly one percentage point ahead
of the overall S&P 500. Those
three groups account for nearly
half of index's value.

The continued success of
financial, energy and technol-
ogy stocks would point to a new
stage of this bull market, which
has returned nearly 100 percent
since it began in March 2009.
Consumer discretionary stocks,
the group of hotels, retail stores
and automakers that depend
on consumer spending, outper-
formed the last two years after
being left for dead during the
2008 financial crisis. Those
companies are now lagging the
market, suggesting that the
bounce back from the lows of
the recession is over.

"Consumers don't have the
income growth to sustain a
more rapid pace of spending,”
says Jeffrey Kleintop, a market
strategist at LPL Financial.
Instead, he says, businesses
spending will eventually lead
to a pickup in the jobs market.

Corporate spending on tech-
nology helped IBM Corp. beat
analyst expectations last week.
On Tuesday, IBM said that its 7
percent jump in revenue came
in part from companies in the
US. upgrading their computer

systems. Its stock jumped
almost 4 percent last week.
Energy companies, mean-
while, are leading the market
this year with a 3.4 percent
jump because of higher
demand, a sign of an improving
economy. Oil company Schlum-
berger said Friday profit in the
most recent quarter rose 31 per-
cent. And financial companies
are benefiting from loans to
businesses, a signal that those
companies plan to expand.
JPMorgan said on its earnings
call last week that it added 400
middle-market companies as
new commercial loan cus-

tomers. Bank of America said
Friday that demand for busi-
ness loans stabilized last quar-
ter, while US Bancorp said
Wednesday that all of its com-
mercial loans divisions were
improving, with the exception
of real estate. Financial com-
panies have the added benefit
of being cheap. The price-to-
earnings ratio of the financial
companies in the S&P 500
index averages 11.6, about half
of its historical average. Finan-
cial companies are cheaper than
any other group except for
health care, which costs 11.2
times earnings.

Holytield fails
to answer bell
for fourth
round after
accidental

head butt

HEY went to the
third round and
ended up with a
"No Decision" as

? Sherman 'the Tank’ Williams’
? bid to clinch the World Boxing
: Federation's heavyweight title
: away from Evander "the Real
? Deal" Holyfield on Saturday
? night.

The 12-round main event

? bout dubbed "Redemption in
? America" and carried live on
? Pay-Per-View saw Holyfield
: head butt and throw a couple
short in Melbourne, Australia. } blows behind the head of
: Williams in the first round. That
? resulted in Williams turning up
i the heat in the second round as
: suffered a cut over his left eye.

After taking a series of blows

? and what was called an acci-
} dental head butt, Holyfield was
? bleeding too much that he did-
? n't answer the bell for the
? fourth round as the fight ended
? up in a “no contest" before a
? jammed pack black-tie crowd
? from America’s resort -- The
? Greenbrier’s Colonial Hall --
} in White Sulphur Springs, West
? Virginia.

“T’m back,” said Williams

? who staggered Holyfield at the
: end of the third round with an
? overhand right. “This fight was
i circus: on again, off again. But I
? stayed focused. I hurt him with
? an overhand punch. Let’s bring
: this fight to Atlantis — Holy-
? field-Williams II. I'll take his
? place in Denmark and fight
? Nielson.”

Williams was referring to

? Holyfield's next scheduled bout
? on March 5 against Brian Niel-
? son that is now in jeopardy
i because of his injury.

“T’m cut,” Holyfield said after

: the fight.

“He head-butted me. He came

? down on me with his head. I
? don’t know about my next fight
? (March 5 vs. Brian Nielson in
? Denmark). I’m cut, I’m cut. I'll
: give Sherman a rematch.”

In his first fight since his 10

round loss on October 10 last
: year to Manuel Charr in
the race, a health fair will take : Sa cee Rostock, Mecklen-

THE TANK VS HOLYFIELD

from Grand Bahama topped
the scale at

258 pounds, compared to the
6-21/2 Holyfield from Atlanta,
Georgia, who came in at 224
after his eight round decision
over Francois Botha to clinch
the WBF title on April 10.

“T’ve had my own personal
setbacks. To get over what I
did was a miracle. I trained
hard for this fight. I was fighting
a legend and I can’t take any-
thing away from him. I feel like
I should have won by TKO. I
cut him with an overhand right,
but I respect him," Williams
said.

As a youngster growing up,
38-year-old Williams said he
idolized Holyfield, but never
envisioned fighting the 48-year-
old former three-time world
champion.

“T root for him. He’s almost
50 and still training and per-
forming. I admire what he’s
done but it’s time to let younger
guys fight and older guys do
television commentary,"
Williams quipped.

"He’s not as good looking as
I am. You’ve made sacrifices,
won 4 world championships
and fought in the Olympics. But
this is a new time, a new era.

RAY Minus Jr. was impressed with

? what he saw as his Champion Boxing
i Club opened their 2011 season with
i their first amateur boxing show on
? Saturday night at the Wulff Road Box-
? ing Center.

So was national amateur boxing

coach Andre Seymour, who brought
one of his competitors from his
Carmichael Knockout Boxing Club
to participate against one of Minus’
Champion Boxing Club competitor.

"This is great. This is a good evel-
opment programme. Ray is doing a
great job," Seymour said.

"He is working with the kids in the
inner city. These kids have natural tal-
ent.

"We just have to continue to work

with them because if we can do that,
we will have al ot more boxers coming
up.

“But in years to come, we don't
want them to drift away. So we have
to keep the talent and groom them
for international tournaments.”

Seymour said he hope to support
more of Minus’ shows in the future
with more of his boxing coming from
the Carmichael Road area to take on
the boxers from the Kemp Road area.

In the only mixed match of the
night, Malik Lungrin, representing
Seymour's Knockout Boxing Club,
took on Tavaris Deveaux from Minus’

Champion Boxing Club. With the
home crowd cheering him on,
Deveaux was able to out-punch Lun-
grin 6-4 for the win.
