Correction

Page two of yesterday’s Tri-
bune featured an article enti-
tled "Govt employee claims
public servants 'taking too long
to answer cell phones'". How-
ever, the first paragraph of the
article should have read "A
government employee says she
is fed up with how long it takes
for telephones in the public ser-
vice to be answered" instead of
" ..how long it takes for public
servants to answer their cell
phones". The article was intend-
ed to relate to phones in gov-
ernment departments and pub-
lic corporations, not ministers’
cell phones, and the headline
should have reflected this also.

Five firearms
recovered by
Grand Bahama

police in 2007

BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Five firearms
have been taken off the streets
so far this month on Grand
Bahama, according to a senior
police official.

Chief Supt Basil Rahming
reported that the latest firearm
seizure occurred on Wednes-
day in the Garden Villas area,
where a young man was
allegedly found in possession
of a 9mm semi-automatic pis-
tol.

According to reports, a team
of DEU officers received infor-
mation that a young man rid-
ing a bicycle in the area was
armed with a handgun. While
in the Weddell Avenue area,
officers spotted a suspect fit-
ting the description of the
cyclist.

On seeing the officers, the
suspect jumped off his bicycle
and ran. He was caught a short
distance away and searched. A
black .Smm pistol loaded with

four live rounds of .9mm
ammunition was discovered in
his waistband.

The suspect was arrested
and taken into custody.

In other matters, two Amer-
icans and one Bahamian were
arrested after they were
allegedly found in possession
of dangerous drugs.

Eight Mile Rock police con-
ducting a routine road check
at Warren J Levarity Highway
on Wednesday between 4.30
and 6.45pm stopped a vehicle
occupied by three young men.

The occupants - a 32-year-
old Bahamian of Jones Town,
Eight Mile Rock, a 23-year-old
resident of Euless, Texas, and a
23-year-old resident of Okla-
homa City, Oklahoma — were
found in possession of 10 pack-
ets of marijuana.

The Bahamian man was also
wanted by police in -connec-
tion with housebreaking and
stealing. The men are expected
to be charged in Eight Mile
Rock Magistrate’s Court.

US spends $2m
on training for
Bahamian law
enforcement

. DURING 2006, the United
States embassy provided nearly
$2 million worth of training to
Bahamian law enforcement and
defence personnel.

This training benefited 530
Bahamian officials who, collec-
tively, received over 135,000
hours of training. In 2005, 542
Bahamians received embassy-
sponsored training at a cost over
$2.35 million.

Training in 2006 encom-
passed a range of areas mutual-
ly identified as vital to strength-
ening Bahamian law enforce-
ment and defence operations,
including: terrorism investiga-
tion, management training,
financial crimes and money-
laundering, crisis response and
HIV policy planning.

The embassy’s regional secu-

rity office, naval liaison office,
narcotics affairs section and
Coast Guard liaison office con-
tributed to these training cours-
es.
The rapidly growing partner-
ship between the Bahamas and
the Rhode Island National
Guard opened up additional
avenues for training, including
the training of non-law enforce-
ment personnel in fire-fighting
and disaster management.

“I believe training is the best
means to strengthen the capa-
bility of our Bahamian law
enforcement partners. Train-
ing provides knowledge, exper-

tise and boosts the morale that
pay dividends long after the
training ends,” Ambassador
Rood said.

“Determining the type of
training needed and who should
receive it is a collaborative
effort between the embassy and
our Bahamian counterparts.
Working together, Bahamian
officials identify areas within
their organisations they wish to
strengthen.”

This information is shared
with embassy counterparts who
identify training opportunities
within their agencies that match
these requirements.

The embassy looks forward
to continuing to work closely
with Bahamian colleagues to

PAGE 4, SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 2007
























Sorry to repeat myself, but I have the same
reaction to this year’s energy proposals in the
State of the Union that I had to last year’s.
President Bush had the opportunity to launch
America on a transformative new path for
clean, efficient power. He had a chance for a
“Nixon to China” moment — as the Texas oil-
man who leads us into a greener future. Instead,
he gave us “Nixon to New Mexico” — right |
direction, but not nearly far enough.

As I read the president’s remarks, listened to
the tepid public reaction and looked at his lat-
est polls, which show Bush to be wildly unpop-
ular, it seemed to me that the American people
basically fired George Bush in the last elec-
tion. We’re now just watching him clean out his
desk. Both his energy proposals, and his recent
Iraq surge, were about the best he could
muster, given his pink slip.

The problem is that he is going to be cleaning
out his desk for another two years, and Amer-
icans deserve better. I would love to see
Democrats put that something better on Bush’s
desk — regarding both energy and Iraq.

“The stakes on Iraq and on climate change
are way too large for us all to be just couch
potatoes waiting for the messiah to come in
2009,” said Fred Krupp, president of Environ-
mental Defence. “That is not an option. Yes, it
would be entertaining, but we need leadership
on these issues, and we need it now.”

On energy — no, the president’s proposals
were not.just beanbag. His call to reform CAFE
mileage standards for U.S. cars: “shifts the
debate from whether to compel U.S. automak-
ers to build more fuel-efficient vehicles to how
much they should do so,” notes a strategy con-
sultant, Peter Schwartz. And his call for'a near-
ly fivefold mandatory increase in the production
of ethanol and other alternative fuels for cars
and trucks also changes the debate from
whether to how much, and which fuels.

But the devil will be in the details. Will liq-
uefied coal be one of those alternatives —
which could add to global warming — or only
non-fossil-fuel alternatives? On mileage stan-
dards, U.S. automakers will lobby the White
House very hard for the smallest possible
-change. Will they get their way? If so, there isn’t
much here.

The really bold, transformative — and pop-
ular — initiative Bush should have offered
would either be a national cap-and-trade system
for controlling CO2 emissions by utilities, man-
ufacturers‘and autos, or a carbon tax. Both
would create economic incentives for us to get

Bush missed an opportunity

rid of appliances, buildings and cars that emit a
lot of CO2 and to invent and purchase those
that don’t.

But there is no reason that the Democrats
could not right now put a cap-and-trade bill
on Bush’s desk themselves by spring, Krupp
said, “and I think Bush would sign it.”

It is not enough for Democrats to just hold
hearings on climate change. They need to use
their new power to change the climate. Not
only would the public be with them, but so
would big business. A coalition of America’s
best companies — like General Electric,
DuPont, Duke Energy, Alcoa, Caterpillar —
and environmentalists just issued a “call to
action” for a national cap-and-trade programme
to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

On Iraq: talking to some of our senior mili-
tary lately, I’ve been struck by how concerned
they are about the new Bush buildup against
Iran. Before we have even won one war in
Iraq, the Bush team seems to be courting
another with Iran. I am all for brandishing the
stick with Iran, but it should be for the purpose
of gaining leverage for a diplomatic dialogue
with Iran and Syria about Iraq.

“When your house is burning, you don’t go
looking to start a fire in the next house,” said
Vali Nasr, author of the “The Shia Revival.”
Right now, he adds, everything should be sub-
ordinated to trying to salvage Iraq.

Let the troop surge be accompanied and
reinforced by what the Baker-Hamilton com-
mission proposed: a regional conference that
puts Syria, Iran, Jordan and Saudi Arabia
around a table with Iraqis to try to stabilize
the place. And that requires that America bran-
dish carrots and sticks with all the parties. If a
real regional conference doesn’t work, then
Democrats who want to just set a date to with-
draw will have an even stronger case because
we will truly have tried everything. But let’s try
everything: a surge of diplomacy, not just
troops.

Let the Democrats put that on the presiden-
t’s desk. Just as the business community would
support a real climate initiative, I think the
U.S. military would support a real diplomatic
conference. Bush gave America’s voters the
reasons to fire him. Democrats need to give
vot +s the reasons to hire them — for the long
haul.

‘EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

The Tribune Limited

NULLIUS ADDICTUS JURARE IN VERBA MAGISTRI

THE TRIBUNE

PM brought:
party into
real world

EDITOR, The Tribune.

- THE Workers Party com-
mends Prime Minister Perry G
Christie for his ambitious, real-
isable and exciting economic
goals for the new year but we
are saddened that after nearly
five years in office the PLP
Government is still largely
dependent on the Kerzner
International Investment to dri-
ve the economy and stimulate
employment,when the PLP in
Opposition was so belligerent
to this investment which came
under the administration of
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham and the Free National
Movement.

The Workers Party feels
strongly that Prime Minister
Christie rightly deserves the
commendation and praise of the
nation for steering his party ide-
ology away from the dangerous
waters to which left wing forces
were driving it in opposing the
Kerzner investment. Bahami-
ans still recall the PLP's boastful
and wicked threat to “renegoti-
ate” the terms of the Heads of
Agreement with Kerzner Inter-
national (then Sun Internation-
al) during the general election
campaign of 2002.

It was a steady and level
headed Perry Christie who took
command of his erstwhile
organisation and whipped it into
line with the prevailing eco-
nomic realities of how business
is done in the 21st century
Bahamas while the old fogies
in the PLP and the strong
armed bag men of yesteryear

Wawa

letters@triobunemedia.net






tried to punctuate the fuller
development of the country
with antiquated and ruinous
ideas.

The PLP therefore not just
owes Perry Christie for leading
them to victory in 2002 but they
have not woken up to the real-
ity that it was Christie’s ideolo-
gy and his experience as a cor-
porate attorney which trans-
formed the outdated and out-
moded PLP economic ideolo-
gy of Pindling and crew into the
acceptable and workable plat-
form that it is today.

The PLP thus became attrac-
tive to the middle class under
Perry Christie despite the omi-
nous presence of many of the
old PLP guard hovering in the
background. Foreign investors
seem to find comfort and ease
with Perry Christie as compared
to the bleak period of 1987 to
1992 when the Pindling Gov-
ernment could not attract any
meaningful foreign investment.

The Workers Party fears that
Mr Christie may not have done
enough to cement his economic
ideology and policy on the PLP
and after his departure the PLP
will sink back into its old ways.
It is our advice, Mr Christie,
that any other platform of his
organisation must write into it
his personal economic policy
and ideology because the old
PLP platform of putting people

who are not productive before
things that require productive
people to move and stimulate
simply cannot work.

There can be no reward for
laziness and while the poor we
will always have with us the dri-
ve is to lift people up from
poverty by giving them an eco-
nomic stake in.a job and oppor- ~
tunity and education and not
by the way of an open-ended
welfare check.

The Workers Party feels that
Mr Christie’s own initiative in
driving new investment in The
Bahamas may have been ham-
pered by non progressives with-
in his own Government and he
has only himself to blame.

Now despite his very best and
gallant efforts he must come to
the Bahamian people driven by
the still fresh breeze of the.
Kerzner International invest-

‘ment which came under the

FNM but his party and the
nation should salute him for
hammering the PLP into
modernity and the capacity to
think outside the box.

The sad indictment for the
PLP as an organisation would
be that after five years Mr
Christie may still be the only
bright light bulb fantastic chan-
delier cheapened with synthetic
and plastic adornments.

Don’t deny positive
economic climate

EDITOR, The Tribune.

A RECENT Talk Show on
Love 97 discussed the compar-
ing of the Bahamas economy at
May, 2002 (last election) in con-
trast to December, 2006.

The pathetic ignorance of the
callers to the show was incredi-
ble — either no one can read
or has read or possibly we have
an excessive number of blind
people but it would seem the
majority have been living with
their-heads in the proverbial
sand.

Compare where the average
consumer can I presume ratio-
nalize? Residential Mortgages

in 2002 were costing you 9.20
per cent whilst in December,
2006 they had reduced to 7.83
per cent.’Consumer loans in
2002 cost you 13.81 per cent
whilst in December, 2006 they
dropped to 11.56 per cent.
These reductions are nothing
to sneeze about as this confirms
that the economy is far more
vibrant than it was in May, 2002
the fact is simple — the banks
have far more money to loan;

money coming from the vibran-.

cy of the strong economy and it
has only started.

Savings, such an-important
aspect for the future well-being
after retirement this grew in
what the Central Bank

describes as Savings Accounts
from in 2002 at $645.4 million to

in 2006 December at $950.7 mil-
lion...Isn’t that a growth of
$305.3 million or an aggregate
of $64.27 million since election,
2002? Fixed deposit accounts in
B$ in 2002 they were at $2,287.8
million and grew in December,
2006 to $2,776.1 million, a
growth of $488.3 million or
$102.8 million per year since
election, 2002!

How can anyone try to argue
that the Bahamas’ economy is
not a lot healthier than it was in
2002 unless of course they sim-
ply wish to be politically biased
for the sake of power?

Harbour Room
chef triumphs

By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - The Harbour
Room’s chef Samuel Favella
emerged as culinary champion
in the Chef Noel 2006 competi-
tion at the annual Festival Noel
fund-raiser at the Rand Nature
Centre.

Some 500 persons who
attended the event sampled
dishes prepared by several
restaurants on the island,
including Iries and China Beach
at the Westin Resort, Aqua fine
dining from Old Bahama Bay,
Ret Catering, and the Grouper
Grill of Ocean Reef Yacht
Club.

In addition to offering fine
food and wine, the occasion
gives local restaurants a chance
to compete for the title of top
chef on the island.

Carolyn Millighan, chairman
of the Festival Committee, said
the 500 guests decided on the
winner. The results were very

close this year, she said.

“This year’s winner was a
newcomer to the field who
managed to take the title from
two-time winner IRIES, of the
Westin Resort, formerly Our
Lucaya,” she said.

“This really has become one
of the highlights and real draws
for our event. ... Being crowned
Chef Noel is not just a title and

a plaque to showcase in the

restaurant, but the winning
team also wins gift certificates
from sponsors Bristol Wines
and Spirits and John Bull,
advertising packages from Cool
96 and.Bahama Buy and Sell,
a write-up in a local tourist pub-
lication and embroidered chef
uniforms with the Chef Noel
Logo from the Uniform Place in
Grand Bahama,” Millighan
said.

Jeff Butler, owner of Harbour
Room Restaurant at Port
Lucaya, was elated at captur-
ing top recognition in the culi-
nary challenge.

FREEPORT - The family of
Tiffany Smith is very upset that
a man charged in connection
with her murder was released
on bail, almost two years fol-
lowing his arrest.

Shavaughn Munnings, the
victim’s sister, said the family
is not taking the news very well
at all — especially Tiffany’s four
children.

“We were not even informed
that he was. being released and
when I heard that he was out I
got so weak...because it was like

Tiffany had died all over again,”
she said.

Tiffany Smith, 30, was found
in an apartment at Caravel

Beach with multiple stabs ~

wounds about the body on May
24, 2005.

She was taken to hospital,
where she was pronounced
dead on arrival. A man initial-
ly charged in connection with
the incident was recently
released on $35,000 bail.

Ms Munnings said that her
sister left behind four children
between the ages of 10 and 15
who are not coping well with
the tragedy.

Ms Munnings, who became
very emotional at one point,
says her worst fear is that the
suspect would attempt to flee
while on bail.

“T think that persons accused
of such vicious crimes should
not be granted bail,” she said.

Ms Munnings said she is also
concerned that granting bail to
suspects may discourage victims
of domestic violence from com-
ing forward to speak out.

Over the last few months,
several police officers have
expressed frustration with
courts granting bail to persons
accused of serious crimes.

AIDS Secretariat head calls.
for work discrimination end

By CLUNIS DEVANEY
Bahamas Information Services

The Director of the
HIV/AIDS Secretariat, Nurse
Rosa Mae Bain, has under-
scored the need to end
HIV/AIDS discrimination in
the workplace.

Nurse Bain said there are
qualified Bahamians not work-
ing because private employers
refuse to hire them because
they tested HIV positive.

She maintained that the
struggle to end this “blatant dis-
crimination” continues and that
the Secretariat is intensifying
efforts for legislation to end this
practice.

She admitted that the Anti-
Discrimination in the Work-
place Act has been passed by
Parliament, “but it is not
enforced to a large extent
because people are still dis-
criminating against those who
tested positive for HIV.”

Nurse Bain said there are pri-
vate companies in The
Bahamas that require job-seek-
ers to fill out applications dis-

closing whether he or she is

HIV positive: .. ra
The director is upset'dver this
form of procedure by the
employers and said until there is
something in the law to address
this, owners of private compa-
nies will continue to design their
applications as they please.
“We have been lobbying for
the relevant changes in the law
and that is definitely something
we will have to intensify our
efforts on,” said Nurse Bain.
She said there is also a subtle
form of discrimination in the
Public Service, and that “we
will have to clear up our own
act before we could put the
muzzle on the private sector.”
She maintained that there are

Bahamians possessing the skills
and requisite qualifications but
cannot find work because they
are HIV positive.

Nurse Bain finds another act
of discrimination against HIV
positive Bahamians equally dis-
tressing.

She blasted the banks and

insurance companies for the |

part they play in discriminating
against Bahamians seeking
mortgages to own homes.

According to Nurse Bain,
people with HIV are living
longer and, if given the oppor-
tunity, can satisfy a 10-year, 20-
year or 25-year mortgage on a
house.

She stressed the need for in-
depth education on HIV/AIDS.

“What we would like to see is
an educational corner in every
single business and in every sin-
gle institution where people can
get HIV/AIDS information,”
said Nurse Bain.

“We would like every single
institution and every business
place to invite those of us from
the resource committee and voi-
unteers who have been trained
to come out and assist persons
in dispelling the myth about

how HIV is: transmitted.:

Because of these myths there is
still gross ignorance.”

She said the Secretariat still
receives information where at
certain establishments excess
amounts of bleach are used in
bathrooms and kitchens, and
where people use Lysol spray
on telephones after someone
suspected of being HIV posi-
tive has used the instrument.

The director said there is still
a great deal of stigma attached
to the HIV/AIDS virus.

She disclosed that almost
7,000 people in The Bahamas
today are living with HIV or
full-blown AIDS.

$37, ,90

RUGG









“Of these persons,” she stat-
ed, “we only have just over
3, 000 of them who are on med-
ication. .

“Our big concern is that we
need to have approximately
another 2,000 people come in
who know they are infected and
who need to have special tests
done.”

Nurse Bain is urging HIV
positive people to come in so a
determination could be made
as to their status and the appro-
priate medication prescribed.

“But the challenge is, people
are afraid of the stigma and dis-
crimination,” said Nurse Bain.
“The stigma and discrimination
is causing a significant number
of our people to stay away. .

“What can we do? The first
thing that we need to do is edu-
cate the general public so they
would stop stigmatising. They
would stop discriminating and
people can then come forward
and have the necessary tests
done.”

She categorised HIV today
as a chronic disease like dia-
betes and hypertension, which
means that if medication is tak-

en as prescribed, one can lead a

long, productive life ‘and be able
to “continue to contribute to
society, continue to pay your
mortgage and continue to pay
for your car.”

Nurse Bain emphasised that
people continue to “die unnec-
essarily” because they are afraid
to come forward for special
tests.

Ambassador hosts

SATURDAY, JANUARY 27, 2007, PAGE 11

Bahamian alumni

\US Ambassador John Rood
hosted a reception at his resi-
dence for Bahamian alumni of
St John’s University in Min-
nesota.

Because of the close relations
between St John’s and St
Augustine’s College in Nassau,
Bahamians have been attend-
ing this Mid-western institution
since 1932, claiming such grad-
uates as Eugene Dupuch,
Arthur Barnett, Leviticus
Adderley, Andrew Curry, Mon-
signor Preston Moss, and at
least 250 others in recent times.

Other guests in Nassau for
the occasion included Steve
Halverson, director of the
Board of Regents of St John’s,
Prince Wallace, the first
Bahamian on the Board of
Regents, Brother Benedict
Leuthner, treasurer of the uni-
versity, Fr Finian McDonald
and Fr Mel Taylor, prior of St
Augustine’s.

More than 50 Bahamian
alumni attended the event and
pledged their commitment to
the establishment of the “Leviti-
cus Adderley Scholarship
Fund”.

This fund will ensure that
Bahamians continue to attend
St John’s and maintain the lega-
cy of this outstanding Bahamian
graduate who contributed so
much to both St John’s and St
Augustine’s College.

Basil Christie, a graduate of
both institutions, was elected
president of the SJU Alumni
Association with the responsi-
bility of registering all gradu-
ates from 1932 to 2006 and
soliciting their support for the
Scholarship Fund.

Earlier that day Ambassador
Rood hosted a luncheon at his
residence for the special guests
and Archbishop Patrick Pinder.

Ambassador Rood acknowl-
edged the valuable role the
Benedictine.:monks of St John’s
played in the development of
The Bahamas since their arrival
in the 1890s and expressed his



‘institution.

All in the heart





when there is a hint of ruthless-
ness, the young doctor appears
exhilarated rather than horri-
fied.

But when the film attempts
to. turn from drama to thriller,
the credibility begins to unravel.

While it may have been inten-
tional to show us only a little of
the crimes of Amin’s adminis-
tration it certainly dilutes the
feeling of danger. By keeping
the horrors taking place in the
country distant, there’s a risk
that the audience, like Garrigan,
will feel safer than it should. So
when violence eventually makes
an appearance, it seems unlike-
ly and slightly contrived.

Still, there are other, more
successful themes here. Garrig-
an’s arrogance in seeing the
whole experience as an adven-
ture in a foreign country and
then having a false sense of enti-
tlement to British help when it
goes wrong, is well handled.
And Amin’s ability to entertain
the international press, even as
his nation falls apart, is both
chilling and frustrating.

So while it has its flaws, The.
Last King of Scotland is still
leaps ahead of your standard
mainstream fare.

It’s well acted and directed
and is sure to spark debate:
when the lights come up.

face months of rehabilitation.

Orthopaedic surgeon at Aventura Hospital,
Dr Michael G. Dennis, told the Miami Herald
that there is a possibility that he may never regain
"full function" in his legs.

The airline has issued a statement saying that it
regrets the incident.-

"American Eagle employees immediately
responded to Mr McCarthy, arranged for prompt
medical care and stayed with him continuously,
providing for his care and personal safety, until he
departed with his acquaintance for Florida," the
airline said in a statement.

However, Mr McCarthy's business associate,
Tom Conlan, who was due to travel with him
that day, told the Miami Herald that American
Eagle repeatedly refused to arrange the medical
transport, claiming the accident was not their
fault.

Mr McCarthy - who owns Aircraft and Instru-
ment Services, an aircraft maintenance company
- had been in George Town for a-day, meeting
with Mr Conlan, owner of Sky Limo, a Fort Laud-
erdale-based air charter company, to talk about a
possible contract to work on his planes.

The fall occurred after he was informed once on
the plane that he would have to check his bag in
planeside because it did not fit in the overhead
locker.

Ax he headed out onto the staircase, he alleges
he heard the flight attendant call out to him, say-
ing ''Sir, don't go out there."



"T had the bag in my left hand and waved to °



them to come get it," he told the Miami Herald. «

Then he felt the flight attendant tap his shoul-
der to tell him not to go, and he lost his balance.

"T must have been teetering just enough that I
started to fall,’ Mr McCarthy said. Though the
stairs were still in place, they were at.a steep
angle, the handrail was low, and there was noth-
ing to grab, he said. He fell over the staircase at
least 10 or 12 feet to the ground.

Mr McCarthy said the only thing which stopped
him from landing head-first was years of martial
arts training.

"I have quick reflexes, and I don't panic,'' he
said.

It was reported that he pushed off with his feet
as he started to fall, dropped the bag, and tried to
roll so he would land on his feet, not his head.

A British passenger came to his aid on the tar-
mac, he recalled, instructing him to breathe
deeply, and telling him: "We're going to get
through this." :

An emergency medical technician arrived short-
ly after, and he was placed on a stretcher to await
an ambulance. He was then transported to a near-
by clinic. However, the first clinic had no X-ray
facilities, and he was moved on to another.

Initially assessed in Nassau, Mr Conlan and
Mr McCarthy flew to Florida at about 4.30pm
that day, about eight hours after the accident.

At Aventura, a surgeon discovered McCarthy
had broken two bones around the knee joint into
"numerous small pieces." He was also suffering
from severe swelling and blisters by that stage.

Mr Rolle at Civil Aviation said he was unaware
of any other similar accidents at the Nassau air-
port.

“We can therefore describe
the programme as a success,
with negligible impact on trav-
ellers. The American public
strongly supports these new
rules, as shown by a recent Zog-

rating,” the embassy stated.

At the outset of the WHTI
implementation, there is a tran-
sition period during which cus-
toms and border protection will
take a flexible “commonsense

is not disrupted, ensuring that

@ BASKETBALL
By BRENT: STUBBS
Senior Sports
Reporter |

INA huge’ game for the
Bahamas Association of
Independent Secondary
Schools’ senior boys bas-
ketball, the' Jordan Prince
William Falcons came out
with the biggest victory.

In the battie of the unde-
feated, the Falcons took
apart the St. John’s Giants
61-46 at St. John’s yester-
day to remain undefeated
at 11-0 to'control the top.
of the standings.

“Our trap was working
very well. We saw that
most of the teams in the
BAISS don’t have that
guard ability that we have
to handle the ball, so we
decided that we were going
to pressure them,” said Fal-
cons’ head coach Godfrey
McQuay.

With Rashad Williams

directing the show, the Fal-
cons used their height
advantage as well as they
set the tempo from the first
quarter and they never
looked back as they cruised
to victory.

Coach McQuay said he
wasn’t surprised at all at
how well they played.

“The surprising part was
how we allowed them to
come back in the game,” he
pointed out.

“But we realised that a
lot of fouls were happening
on the opposite side of the

‘ball, so we decided to relax

a little.

“But the trap was always
there for us.”

The Falcons used an
effective full court trap as
they managed to take the
ball out of the hands of the
Giants, forcing them to get
away from their up-tempo
game.

Williams, who at times
had to play against a box
and one defence, scored a
game high 15 to lead Jor-
dan Prince William. Den-
netin Swain had nine, Pete
Smith eight and Kentino
Jackson chipped in with
Six. .

Potential

After. the win, McQuay
said they know they have
the potential to play well,
but their goal is not just to
win the BAISS pennant
and championship, but to
concentrate on the big one
- the Hugh Campbell
Basketball Classic next
month.

For St. John’s, Joshua
Evans led the way with 11
points, Ricardo Moultrie
had nine, Shanarj Wallace
seven, Antone Francis six
and Taj-mon Thompson
finished with four.

Coach Sherwin Major
said they sealed their own
fate when they missed more
than 30 free throws.

“We didn’t get blow out,
but those free throws were
our nightmare,” he

stressed. “I’ve been preach-
ing that all year and we’re
been going over that, but it
just didn’t come through
today.”

The Giants fell behind
18-7 at the end of the first
quarter and. 32-18 at the
half before it was extend-
ed to 44-27 after the third
quarter.

But throughout the sec-
ond half, St. John’s put a
dent into the lead, only to
watch as Jordan Prince
William soared back to stay
ahead of them.

While it was their first
loss for the season, with
two more games to play
before the playoffs, Major
said they just have to
regroup and get ready for
the postseason.

“This loss won’t hurt us,”
he said.

However, McQuay said it
has given his Falcons the
incentive, knowing that
they are capable of beating
the Giants, if they have to
meet again in the playoffs
or the championship.

Caribs enjoy last gasp win
over defending champions

Bj BASKETBALL
By BRENT STUBBS
_ Senior Sports Reporter

THE College of the Bahamas
Lady Caribs and guard Christine
_ Sinclair celebrated Thursday
night as if they had just won the
New Providence Women’s Bas-
ketball Association championship
crown.

Sinclair was hoisted i in the air
after she drilled a three-point shot
with just 0.2 seconds left on the
clock, lifting the Lady Caribs to a
stunning 60-59 victory over the
defending champions Johnson

Lady Truckers.

It was the second consecutive
night that the College of the
Bahamas came away from the
DW Davis Gym with a victory
over their arch-rival, following
their decision over the Cleaning
Center Lady Angels as they
maintained their lead in the

NPWBA’s standings, improving °

to 9-1.

The Truckers fell to 7-3 in a
two-way tie for second place with
the Lady Angels, who rebounded
in the opening game from Tues-
day’s loss by routing the Defence
Force Bluewaves 85-60. The Lady

Bluewaves fell to 3-7.

Alexis Russell played big in the
paint as she finished with 18
points and 11 rebounds, all game
high honours. But it was Sinclair,
whose 12th point on her only
three-pointer that deflated the
Lady Truckers at the end.

“We had to dig deep because
we were down. But when they
said it was only a couple seconds
left, I decided to put it up,” said
Sinclair, who was 5-for-12 from
the field and 1-for-2 from both
the free throw and three point
line.

Lady Truckers’ coach Perry

Darling said Sinclair’s prayers
were answered.

“She threw up.a prayer and her
prayer was answered,” Darling
said. “We knew they had a bigger
team than us down low, but our
defence stepped up in the second
half and we executed well.

“We had the game. We were
‘tight there. But she threw up a
prayer and her prayer was
answered. But if I see them again,
I know we will beat them.”

Sinclair said none of the teams
in the league want to see them
win, so they have to play extra
hard to win. She said as long as

Super Bow! golf event to raise foothall funds

lm By DENISE MAYCOCK
- Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT — The Mike Jones Founda-
tion and the three Rotary Clubs are hosting
a Super Bowl NFL golf tournament and
party to raise funds for the development
of a youth football league on Grand
Bahama.

Freeport resident Mike Kelly, who rep-
resents the Mike Jones Foundation, said a
number NFL players are expected to trav-
el to Freeport during the weekend of Feb-
ruary 2 to 4 to attend the fundraising events.

Mr Kelly and the MJ foundation were
very instrumental in getting a youth football
league started three years ago on Grand
Bahama, where some 250 youngsters are
enrolled in the programme.

He said funds raised from the events will
go towards the further development of the
football league/programme on Grand
‘Bahama. He said that the Rotary Club has
agreed to help form a board to perpetuate
the programme.

The weekend of events will kick off on
Friday, February 2, with a NFL golf tour-
nament at the Reef Golf Course in Lucaya.
A football game will be held at the Grand
Bahama Sports Centre on Saturday, and
the winner will play in the Grand Bahama
Super Bowl game at 1pm on Sunday.

Mr Kelly said the weekend will climax
with a Super Bowl party at the Freeport
Rugby Club on Settler’s Way following
Sunday’s game. A silent auction and numer-
ous prizes will be up to grabs, including
first class round trip tickets, an NFL golf
match player’s party, and tickets to the 2008

Super Bowl in Phoenix, Arizona.

“This will be a fantastic Super Bowl
weekend with NFL athletes...and so we
are hopeful to raise a lot of money that will
benefit the youth of Grand Bahama.

“We hope everyone will come out and
participate and support the events because
we have worked for several years to get a
youth football league started and it is final-
ly come to fruition,” said Mr Kelly.

Rotarian Eunice Morris, golf tournament
coordinator, said about 18 NFL players will
be participating in the tournament, which
starts at 12 noon.at the Reef Course.

She said that the cost of registration is
$400 per team and the first 18 teams to reg-
ister will have an NFL player on their team.

“We are encouraging all avid golfers to
come out and register because we are also
giving away a 2007 Jeep Cherokee for ‘Hole
in One’

Ms Morris said that an NFL alumni from
the Dolphins is also working on getting
some footballs for NFL players to sign and
auction off.

She said that businesses, companies and
corporate entities can sponsor a hole and
have their company’s name or logo up in
lights on the golf course. «

“We are looking for major sponsors for
these events.

We are expecting an exciting and inter-
esting weekend for persons attending the
super bowl party because they will have
the opportunity to take photographs with
NFL players and get their autographs.

Mike Stafford, president of Rotary Club
of Freeport, said they are happy to be part-
ners with the Mike Jones Foundation to

assist in youth development on Grand
Bahama.

“It is a fantastic opportunity for the busi-
ness community to support MJF and the
Rotary Club’s golf tournament and Super
Bowl weekend because all funds raised will
go back into youth development in our
community.

“We would like to encourage business
leaders, companies and corporations, and
anchor projects on the island to throw some
financial support behind us because we
need to get youth back involved in sports
development and vocational programmes,”
Mr Stafford said.

Mr Kelly said there limited sporting pro-
grammes on Grand Bahama because of
lack of sponsorship. He said many youth
programmes are “short lived” due to lack of
funding.

“We are trying to a get a programme that
is comprehensive that will support the
sports that don’t typically get sponsorship.
The soccer programmes here are Wonder-
fully funded, but a lot of the other youth
programmes are very short lived because
they just don’t have the funding. So, the
intent is to try and get a team together that
can allow sport activities to be available
for children year round.”

He said the football league was started
three years ago and the first camp drew
some 600 participants over a four day peri-
od. The league currently caters to teens in
high schools.

Mr Kelly noted that the league has final-
ly received some 150 protective pads, hel-
mets, and jerseys to play full contact foot-
ball.

Newbold and Russell get the job

‘done inside, they can win.

Russell, who connected on 9-
of-16 from the field, was the first
member of the College of the
Bahamas team to congratulate
Sinclair on her performance.

“When I saw her shoot the ball,

I just had a feeling it was going
n,” Russell said. “Everybody
played good game and with the
score so close, we needed a shot
like that to win.”

Russell, who teamed up with
Kavionne Newbold for the Lady
Caribs, said she was inspired after
they beat the Lady Angels.

“I feel we can go all the way
and win the pennant. If we are
fortunate, we can even win the
championship,” she explained.

In what could have easily been
viewed as a championship game,
both teams played extremely well
to entertain the fans in the gym as
they traded the lead in the sec-
ond half.

COB dominated the first half
as Diasti Delancy directed the
show and Russell powered inside
as they helped secure their 16-10
first quarter lead and maintained
a 28-22 advantage at the half.

But in a complete turnaround
in the second half, the Lady
Truckers rolled back to take:a 29-
28 lead, only to watch as the Lady
Caribs surged back on top, 48-40,
at the end of the period.

Again, both teams picked it up
in the fourth before the Lady
Truckers got a three-pointer from
Shantell Rolle and a jumper from
Glenda Gilcud to tie the score at
55-55. A free throw by Janice
Williams gave them a 56-55 lead.

After Delancy wiggled inside
for a lay-up and a Lady Caribs’
57-56 lead, Antoinette Knowles
scored on a baseline jumper to
put the Lady Truckers out front
58-57. A free throw by Stacy Hor-
ton extended it to 59-57.

But Sinclair pulled up between
a pair of Lady Truckers’ defend-
ers and sank the three-pointer
through'the nets for the game
winning basket.

Delancy finished with 11 points
and eight assists; Alyse Dean had
nine points and Newbold ended
up with eight points to round out
COB scoring.

Gilcud led the Lady Truckers
with 17, Shantelle Rolle and Hor-
ton both had 14 - Horton with 10 -
rebounds as well - and Janice
Williams added 12 pon with
nine rebounds.

@ Lady Angels 85, Lady Blue-
waves 60: Sharelle Cash and
Suzette McKenzie combined for
39 points for the Cleaning Centre.

Cash had 21 with seven
rebounds and four assists;
McKenzie had 18 points, 10
assists and five rebounds; Kecia
Smith had 14 points, five
rebounds and three assists and
Keisha Richardson helped out
with 14 points and seven
rebounds.

McKezie said it’s good to be
back making her contribution to
the team’s bid to regain the title
they relinquished to the Lady
Truckers,

“T just think we need to get our
conditioning back and we could
win some more games,” she
insisted. “It’s going to be hard
because every team out there has
talent.

“It won’t be easy to win. Every
game you have to come out and
play hard because each and every
team has some talent. We just

‘have to play some defence. Our

offence is there. We just need
some defence.”

Former Lady Angels’ swing-
woman Lannes Bennons had a’
game high 23 points with four
rebounds and Natasha Miller had
22 points and 11 rebounds while
Varel Davis, another former Lady
Angels player, finished with 11
points and four assists.

Davis said it was always fun
playing against her former team,
but feels her Lady Bluewaves
could play much better.

“We’re just not having the full
team out, so it’s putting a lot of
pressure on the starting five,” she
reflected. “But if we get our full
team out, we can play with any of
the teams in the league.”

The Lady Angels led this game
from the first quarter when they
went up 17-11.

Although the Lady Bluewaves
managed to keep the digit under
ten points, they never led the rest
of the way.

MP candidates
pledge help to

ease feud fears ©

By ALEXANDRIO
MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

FOREIGN minister Fred
Mitchell and his FNM chal-
lenger Dr Jacinta Higgs have
pledged to provide Fox Hill
with social aid and support fol-
lowing’a dispute between two-
youths that left.a house in
flames late Thursday night.

Two teenagers were involved
in an argument that resulted in
one of the youths being severe-
ly injured with a cutlass.

‘The incident led to one
teenager being taken to hospi-
tal, but the conflict did not end
there. A group of men went »
into the alleged attacker’s yard
and beat him up.

Now it is alleged that, while -

the mother of one boy was at
the hospital, a group of men
sought vengeance by torching
her house and starting a fire in
two places.

Some Fox Hill residents claim
it was the same group of men

that had beaten up one of the -

boys after the initial row.

The home was burnt to the
ground, leaving some Fox-
Hillians fearing an ongoing feud
between the families.

Police have also confirmed
that they suspect arson in
respect of the destroyed home
and say a full investigation has
begun.

The Tribune contacted Min-
ister Mitchell, MP for Fox Hill,
and Dr Higgs to ascertain what
they knew of the incident and
how they planned to help con-

stituents. :
According to Minister
Mitchell, the Internal Security
Division (ISD) of the police
force had already stepped up
patrols in the area to make sure
tensions don’t escalate to the
point where there could be
additional violence in the com-
“munity: :
“ve also asked the people

at the Urban Renewal Office -

to begin to pay special atten-
tion to the area,” said Mr
Mitchell.

He said that Urban Renewal
and psychiatrist Dr David Allen
were speaking with young men
in Fox Hill to defuse any fur-
ther tension.

Mr Mitchell also pledged that
the Urban Renewal office in the
area would provide assistance
to the family whose home was
destroyed.

FNM election candidate Dr
Jacinta Higgs told The Tribune
she wanted to play a supportive
role during resolution of the
conflict.

“My role at this time is of a
supportive capacity because we
all know that all of our families

- are participants in matters just
as this,” said Dr Higgs. °

She described the general
mood as “sombre and silent.”

“As I moved around,” said
Dr Higgs, “I told everyone that
this is a time for us to heal and
pray.”

Di Higgs said she was appeal-
ing to the public to donate food
or clothes to the family affected
by the fire.

Gunmen
shoot

nightclub
patron

By NATARIO McKENZIE



A LOCAL nightclub was the
scene of a fatal shooting early
yesterday morning when armed
gunmen opened fire.on a
patron.

It was around Jam when a
man approached a security offi-
cer at Fantasy Nightclub on
Madeira Street and expressed
his interest in entering the
establishment.

Reports say the security offi-
cer was about to conduct a rou-
tine search when the man pro-
duced a handgun. Moments lat-
er a second assailant appeared,
armed with a shotgun.

The gunmen forced the secu-
rity guard to the main entrance
door of the club which was
opened by a patron.

One gunman fired a shot at

the patron, hitting him in the

chest. The victim, who police |

had not identified up to press
time yesterday, was taken to
hospital where he died a short
time later.

The gunmen fled the scene
and, according to reports, a
black sports utility vehicle was
seen speeding off from the

- Man falls

from plane

By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

An injured man is planning
to sue American Eagle after
he fell from the back door of a
plane onto the tarmac at Lyn-
den Pindling International
Airport - injuring his leg and
heel so severely that he esti-
mates his medical costs will
reach $1 million.

Mr Kevin McCarthy, 46, of
Deerfield Beach, Florida, suf-
fered his injuries on the morn-
ing of January 3 while board-
ing a flight from Nassau to
Miami.

Since then, he has been
recuperating in Aventura
Hospital, Florida, having
undergone six surgeries on his
left leg to relieve swelling and
repair fractures to his knee.

He is scheduled to have
surgery on his shattered right
ankle and anticipates that the
cost of the treatment may
reach $1 million.

"I'm in so much agony it's
ridiculous,'' the passenger -
who did not have health insur-
ance at the time of the acci-
dent - told the Miami Herald
from his hospital bed.

’ In his account of the fall
from the staircase at the back

of the plane - known as as an
airstair - Mr McCarthy says
that his leg ended up "near
his face" and had to be
"straightened out" by an
emergency medical techni-
cian.

Bahamian aviation author-
ities were unaware of the inci-
dent until the Miami Herald
queried them about it days
ago.

‘Yesterday, Mr Pat Rolle,
manager of flight standards at
Civil Aviation, said that his
department would not be
investigating the incident. As
far as they were aware, it.was
not due to an “operational
failure."

However, a Federal Avia-
tion Authority investigation
is now underway to determine
if any of their rules were vio-
lated after Mr McCarthy per-
sonally alerted them about his
fall.

According to the Miami
Herald, American Eagle had
failed to report the incident.

Mr McCarthy's doctor said
he will not be able to put any
weight on his legs for at least
eight to ten weeks, and will

GUANGZHOU, China

IT WAS Lauren
Cheney’s first game for
the United States. She
was playing in an 80,000-
seat stadium in China and
facing Germany, the
world’s No. 1 women’s
soccer team.

Hey, guess what. The
19-year-old forward was
trembling. 7

“Before the game I was
very nervous, a little bit
rattled,” said Cheney, fol- .
lowing a 0-0 draw Friday
on the opening day of the
Four Nations tournament.

The Americans and
Germans brought young
teams to this event in '
southern.China, each rest-
ing a half dozen likely
starters in the upcoming

- World Cup in China,
which open Sept. 10. In
the other game, China
defeated England 2-0 on

- first half goals by Zhang

~-Ying and Han Duan.

American coach Greg .
Ryan is searching for a
third striker to go with

top forwards Kristine Lil- ie
--ly and Abby Wambach, i

who are home resting.
Cheney is a candidate,

*, as are Natasha Kai,

Heather O’Reilly and
Lindsay Tarpley. They all
_- played Friday.

'.>. “Before the game I was .

pretty excited to be start-
ing,” Cheney added. “But
I kind of tensed up. I felt
like my whole body was

Ryan, who is using this
tournament to test young
talent, sympathized with
Cheney, who was rested

‘in the second half.

over the nerves, but you
. have to be on the field to
- do that,” he said.

Gonzalez dominates Haas to set -
up finals matchup with Federer —

@ TENNIS
MELBOURNE,
Australia
Associated Press

TENTH-SEEDED Fer-
nando Gonzalez put on
another brilliant display of
tennis Friday, sprinting all
over the court to rip winners
at will as he dominated Ger-
many’s Tommy Haas 6-1, 6-
3, 6-1 to reach the Australian
Open final.

It was a performance rem-
iniscent of top-ranked Roger
Federer’s rout of Andy Rod-
dick in the other semifinal a
night earlier. Gonzalez was
nearly flawless, leaving the
capacity crowd gasping and
the 12th-seeded Haas
stunned and frustrated.

“It was a really good day
for me,” Gonzalez said. “I
have been playing great ten-
nis. I am enjoying it a lot.”

Gonzalez had _ zero
unforced errors in the first
and third sets and only three
for the match — “One was
really stupid,” he said — to
go along with 42 winners that
accounted for more than half
of his 82 points.

For Haas, it. was over-
whelming.

“J played actually pretty
good tennis,” Haas said.
“Every time I tried to do



came up with the answer.
That’s quite frustrating. I just
have to hand it to him, tip
the hat, say that’s too good.
Nothing I could have done.”

Gonzalez, who had never
reached a Grand Slam semi-

er on Sunday evening in the
championship match.
“Roger is No. 1 one by
far,” Gonzalez said. “But
there is only one match left.
I have lost many times to
him, but I know that I am
playing much better than the
last time that we played. I’m
going to try to do the same
thing that I’ve been doing.
“I’m playing the most
important match in my life.
He has to lose sometime.”
The third-seeded pair of
Zimbabwe’s Cara Black and
South Africa’s Liezel Huber
ended the run of Taiwan’s
Chan Yung-jan and Chuang
Chia-jung to win the wom-
en’s doubles title 6-4, 6-7 (4),
6-1. The Taiwanese team had

great saves.

Ryan, who took over
almost two years ago, is
unbeaten in 32 games
when they have been
decided in regulation
time. His only blemish
was on penalty kicks last
year against Germany.

“The main goal was to
get the young players on

‘the field and to experi-
ence what it’s like playing
against Germany,” Ryan
said. “This is an opportu-
nity they are not going to
get very often.”

Both teams had trouble
keeping the ball. There
were good spells and then
lulls, with solid play from
midfielders Lori Chalup-
ny and Leslie Osborne.

“We lacked consistency,
and at time reverted to

.. just kicking the ball,”
Ryan added.

Germany was without

players, likely to be

included: Kerstin Gare-

urday pits top-seeded Maria
Sharapova, the reigning U.S.
Open champion, against
two-time champion Serena
Williams, unseeded while
coming back. from a bad
knee that limited her to four

. tournaments last year.

Music from a nearby con-
cert drifted into packed Rod
Laver Arena on a brisk Aus-
tralia Day evening Friday.
Fireworks followed the
match, but Gonzalez provid-
ed plenty before then.

Once known for a weak
backhand and a fragile psy-
che, Gonzalez has improved
both significantly in recent
months and has won over
thousands of fans here with
his powerful serve and fore-
hand.

He was excited about the
match statistics.

“I have been playing many
years with 45 unforced errors
and three winners!” he said,
adding that he had never
made so few mistakes in a
match. .

The Chilean ran off 11
points to start the first set,
and Haas ended up with
only 12 points in the seven

court on two other occasions. :

Haas tried to pick on Gon-
zalez’s backhand, but the
Chilean just kept getting
back slice after slice until he
got a chance to wind up ona
forehand and send zingers
into the corners.

A group of vocal German
fans included five young men
with “Tommy Haas” spelled
out on their bare chests and
“Bye Bye Gonzalez” on

their backs, cheered for Haas.

between points, but their
support hardly helped. °

Gonzalez, who never faced
a break point, finished it off
with a backhand crosscourt
winner for his seventh ser-
vice break to end it in I
hour, 31 minutes — eight
minutes longer than Feder-
er’s win over Roddick.

“I’m obviously trying to
think what I could have done
differently after the match
like this. It’s really hard,”
said Haas, who added that
Gonzalez made him under-
stand how Roddick felt.

“Pretty much everything

to go his way.

@ SOUTH African captain Graeme Smith plays a stroke as Pakistan's wicket keeper Kamran Akmal anticipates a catch on the first day of a last test match at Newlands
stadium in Cape Town, South Africa, Friday, Jan. 26, 2007.

B CRICKET
CAPE TOWN,
South Africa
Associated Press

GRAEME SMITH scored
64 to help South Africa reach
131-5 at stumps Friday on day
one of the third and final test
against Pakistan.

Pakistan was earlier bowled
out for 157 with Mohammad
Yousuf top scoring with 83 at
the Newlands Stadium.
Makhaya Ntini had 4-44 from
13.1 overs and Jacques Kallis
4-42 off 11 overs before tea.

"It's not about getting
another hundred - it's for the
team," Yousuf said. "If they
had stayed with me, maybe
we could have got to 200.

Yousuf hit 10 fours and a
six off 131 balls. Imran Farhat
(20) and Mohammad Hafeez
(10) were the only other Pak-
istan batsmen to reach double
figures.

"I've never seen a two-col-
or pitch before," Yousuf said.
"So Pakistan are still in with
a chance, if we play well."

South Africa started bad-
ly, losing opener Boeta Dip-
penaar leg-before-wicket for
a duck in the opening over.
Hashim Amla also fell to
Mohammad Asif, edging a
delivery to Kamran Akmal
for 2.

Kallis and Smith put on 80
runs for the third wicket,
until Kallis got an inside edge
while driving a ball fram
Mohammad Sami and was
caught by Akmal for 28.

Smith hit 10 fours from 79
balls before he was out to a

one-handed catch by Pakistan

captain Inzamam-ul-Haq at
second slip off the bowling
off Shahid Nazir.

A.B. de Villiers was bowled
for 11 by a googly from Dan-
ish Kaneria to continue his
poor form.

Ashwell Prince was not out
on 18 with nightwatchman
Paul Harris yet to score.

Asif was the best of Pak-
istan's bowlers with 2-20.

"Were going to have to
play well tomorrow," South
Africa coach Mickey Arthur.
"You're never really in on
this wicket, there's something
happening all the time. We

set ourselves the goal of get-
ting a lead of 100, but 50 or
60 could be as good as a hun-
dred in a normal test."

Smith won the toss and
sent Pakistan in to bat in an
effort to win a series tied at 1-
1.

Ntini struck in the eighth
over, having Hafeez caught
at third slip by De Villiers for
10. In the previous over, De
Villiers had dropped Farhat
with a difficult chance off the
bowling of Dale Steyn.

In the 12th over, Ntini got

Yasir Hameed to drive out-
side the off stump when he
had 7, and Kallis took an easy
head-high catch at second
slip.

Kallis himself came on to
bowl to replace Steyn, and,
in his second over, Farhat
played a drive at a ball drift-
ing away to give Smith a
catch at first slip.

Younis Khan, who has bat-
ted well in the series, looked
uncomfortable throughout his
stay. and he was out slashing
at a Kallis delivery when he
had 8. De Villiers took a
good overhead catch high to
his left.

Pakistan went to lunch at
70-4 and Inzamam fell
straight after the break when
he edged a delivery from
Andrew Hall to Boucher for
6. °

Akmal was caught by De
Villiers off Steyn for a duck
before Mohammad Sami and
Yousuf put on a 60-run stand.
Sami was finally out for 4,
caught by Boucher off Kallis
and Pakistan was 150-7.

Within seven runs, Shahid
Nazir (3) was caught by Har-
ris off Ntini, Kaneria (0) was
caught by Boucher off Kallis,
and Yousuf was caught at
wide mid-off by Prince off
Ntini.

Opening lead — queen of spades.

This remarkable hand, played
many years ago by Claggett Bowie
of Baltimore, features an extraordi-
nary endplay.

Bowie had bid six hearts fully
aware that his partner was void of
spades and that his ace was therefore
of doubtful value. However, he also
thought that his six-heart bid might
induce the opponents to bid six
spades.

The slam seems impossible to
make, even if you see all four hands.

East played the queen, West’s jack
could then be’ trapped. Or if West led
the club jack instead, East’s queen
could be trapped by going up with
dummy’s ace. The same was true if
West shifted to a diamond. All roads
thus led to 12 tricks.

Observe that if Bowie had dis-
carded a club or a diamond from
dummy instead of ruffing the ace of
spades at trick three, the slam would
have failed. After being thrown on
lead with the trump, West would
have retumed whichever suit Bowie
had discarded from dummy. The set-
ting trick would then have come
from the other suit.

THE TRIBUNE

Resort PINs down
guest service





O

EMPLOYEES who have collected the most pins thus far in the PIN programme share a moment of celebration as they are recognised for the
efforts to ‘wow’ guests at Pelican Bay at Lucaya. Pictured from left are: Mrs Judy Duncombe, director human resources; Sabrina Williams, Nep-
__tune’s breakfast; Stanley Williams, bell captain, and Mrs Cindy Burrows, front desk clerk.

GRAND Bahama — Pelican
Bay at Lucaya’s staff has earned
a reputation as a leader on
Grand Bahama for providing
guest service to vacationers.

Now, the resort is changing
the way guests share their praise
of the Pelican Bayteam by
introducing the PIN pro-
gramme, which gives staff mem-
bers an opportunity to earn
bonuses.

The newly-launched PIN pro-
gramme is designed to let guests
share their compliments direct-
ly with those delivering the ser-
vice. When guests check in they
are issued . i



Guests are encouraged to give
the pin to a Pelican Bay team
member who delivers service
above and beyond expectations.
Guests can hand out as: many
pins as desired.

Team members who receive
the pins can wear them on their
uniforms to showcase their
commitment to delivering great
service. Furthermore, once a
staff member has reached a cer-

tain level of pins, they qualify

for a $100 bonus. Currently, Pel-
ican Bay’s Cindy Burrows, Sab-
rina Williams and Stanley
Williams have earned the most
pins.



“Many times our guests will
send comment cards or e-mails
after a stay to tell us about the
great service they received from
a staff member,” explains Mag-
nus Alnebeck, Pelican Bay’s
general manager.

“With the PIN programme
the guest can tell our team
members thank you right there
on the spot.”

Pelican Bay at Lucaya fea-
tures 93 one-bedroom suites
and an 89-room inn. Both the
suites and the hotel hold the
prestigious “Small Treasure”
designation awarded by The
Bahamas Ministry of Tourism.

Correction

Page two of yesterday’s Tri-
bune featured an article enti-
tled "Govt employee claims
public servants 'taking too long
to answer cell phones'". How-
ever, the first paragraph of the
article should have read "A
government employee says she
is fed up with how long it takes
for telephones in the public ser-
vice to be answered" instead of
" ..how long it takes for public
servants to answer their cell
phones". The article was intend-
ed to relate to phones in gov-
ernment departments and pub-
lic corporations, not ministers’
cell phones, and the headline
should have reflected this also.

Five firearms
recovered by
Grand Bahama

police in 2007

BY DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Five firearms
have been taken off the streets
so far this month on Grand
Bahama, according to a senior
police official.

Chief Supt Basil Rahming
reported that the latest firearm
seizure occurred on Wednes-
day in the Garden Villas area,
where a young man was
allegedly found in possession
of a 9mm semi-automatic pis-
tol.

According to reports, a team
of DEU officers received infor-
mation that a young man rid-
ing a bicycle in the area was
armed with a handgun. While
in the Weddell Avenue area,
officers spotted a suspect fit-
ting the description of the
cyclist.

On seeing the officers, the
suspect jumped off his bicycle
and ran. He was caught a short
distance away and searched. A
black .Smm pistol loaded with

four live rounds of .9mm
ammunition was discovered in
his waistband.

The suspect was arrested
and taken into custody.

In other matters, two Amer-
icans and one Bahamian were
arrested after they were
allegedly found in possession
of dangerous drugs.

US spends $2m
on training for
Bahamian law
enforcement

. DURING 2006, the United
States embassy provided nearly
$2 million worth of training to
Bahamian law enforcement and
defence personnel.

This training benefited 530
Bahamian officials who, collec-
tively, received over 135,000
hours of training. In 2005, 542
Bahamians received embassy-
sponsored training at a cost over
$2.35 million.

Training in 2006 encom-
passed a range of areas mutual-
ly identified as vital to strength-
ening Bahamian law enforce-
ment and defence operations,
including: terrorism investiga-
tion, management training,
financial crimes and money-
laundering, crisis response and
HIV policy planning.

The embassy’s regional secu-

rity office, naval liaison office,
narcotics affairs section and
Coast Guard liaison office con-
tributed to these training cours-
es.
The rapidly growing partner-
ship between the Bahamas and
the Rhode Island National
Guard opened up additional
avenues for training, including
the training of non-law enforce-
ment personnel in fire-fighting
and disaster management.

“I believe training is the best
means to strengthen the capa-
bility of our Bahamian law
enforcement partners. Train-
ing provides knowledge, exper-

tise and boosts the morale that
pay dividends long after the
training ends,” Ambassador
Rood said.

“Determining the type of
training needed and who should
receive it is a collaborative
effort between the embassy and
our Bahamian counterparts.
Working together, Bahamian
officials identify areas within
their organisations they wish to
strengthen.”

This information is shared
with embassy counterparts who
identify training opportunities
within their agencies that match
these requirements.

The embassy looks forward
to continuing to work closely
with Bahamian colleagues to

Sorry to repeat myself, but I have the same
reaction to this year’s energy proposals in the
State of the Union that I had to last year’s.
President Bush had the opportunity to launch
America on a transformative new path for
clean, efficient power. He had a chance for a
“Nixon to China” moment — as the Texas oil-
man who leads us into a greener future. Instead,
he gave us “Nixon to New Mexico” — right |
direction, but not nearly far enough.

As I read the president’s remarks, listened to
the tepid public reaction and looked at his lat-
est polls, which show Bush to be wildly unpop-
ular, it seemed to me that the American people
basically fired George Bush in the last elec-
tion. We’re now just watching him clean out his
desk. Both his energy proposals, and his recent
Iraq surge, were about the best he could
muster, given his pink slip.

The problem is that he is going to be cleaning
out his desk for another two years, and Amer-
icans deserve better. I would love to see
Democrats put that something better on Bush’s
desk — regarding both energy and Iraq.

“The stakes on Iraq and on climate change
are way too large for us all to be just couch
potatoes waiting for the messiah to come in
2009,” said Fred Krupp, president of Environ-
mental Defence. “That is not an option. Yes, it
would be entertaining, but we need leadership
on these issues, and we need it now.”

On energy — no, the president’s proposals
were not.just beanbag. His call to reform CAFE
mileage standards for U.S. cars: “shifts the
debate from whether to compel U.S. automak-
ers to build more fuel-efficient vehicles to how
much they should do so,” notes a strategy con-
sultant, Peter Schwartz. And his call for'a near-
ly fivefold mandatory increase in the production
of ethanol and other alternative fuels for cars
and trucks also changes the debate from
whether to how much, and which fuels.

But the devil will be in the details. Will liq-
uefied coal be one of those alternatives —
which could add to global warming — or only
non-fossil-fuel alternatives? On mileage stan-
dards, U.S. automakers will lobby the White
House very hard for the smallest possible
-change. Will they get their way? If so, there isn’t
much here.

The really bold, transformative — and pop-
ular — initiative Bush should have offered
would either be a national cap-and-trade system
for controlling CO2 emissions by utilities, man-
ufacturers‘and autos, or a carbon tax. Both
would create economic incentives for us to get

Bush missed an opportunity

rid of appliances, buildings and cars that emit a
lot of CO2 and to invent and purchase those
that don’t.

But there is no reason that the Democrats
could not right now put a cap-and-trade bill
on Bush’s desk themselves by spring, Krupp
said, “and I think Bush would sign it.”

It is not enough for Democrats to just hold
hearings on climate change. They need to use
their new power to change the climate. Not
only would the public be with them, but so
would big business. A coalition of America’s
best companies — like General Electric,
DuPont, Duke Energy, Alcoa, Caterpillar —
and environmentalists just issued a “call to
action” for a national cap-and-trade programme
to limit greenhouse gas emissions.

On Iraq: talking to some of our senior mili-
tary lately, I’ve been struck by how concerned
they are about the new Bush buildup against
Iran. Before we have even won one war in
Iraq, the Bush team seems to be courting
another with Iran. I am all for brandishing the
stick with Iran, but it should be for the purpose
of gaining leverage for a diplomatic dialogue
with Iran and Syria about Iraq.

“When your house is burning, you don’t go
looking to start a fire in the next house,” said
Vali Nasr, author of the “The Shia Revival.”
Right now, he adds, everything should be sub-
ordinated to trying to salvage Iraq.

Let the troop surge be accompanied and
reinforced by what the Baker-Hamilton com-
mission proposed: a regional conference that
puts Syria, Iran, Jordan and Saudi Arabia
around a table with Iraqis to try to stabilize
the place. And that requires that America bran-
dish carrots and sticks with all the parties. If a
real regional conference doesn’t work, then
Democrats who want to just set a date to with-
draw will have an even stronger case because
we will truly have tried everything. But let’s try
everything: a surge of diplomacy, not just
troops.

Let the Democrats put that on the presiden-
t’s desk. Just as the business community would
support a real climate initiative, I think the
U.S. military would support a real diplomatic
conference. Bush gave America’s voters the
reasons to fire him. Democrats need to give
vot +s the reasons to hire them — for the long
haul.

‘EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

The Tribune Limited

NULLIUS ADDICTUS JURARE IN VERBA MAGISTRI

THE TRIBUNE

PM brought:
party into
real world

EDITOR, The Tribune.

- THE Workers Party com-
mends Prime Minister Perry G
Christie for his ambitious, real-
isable and exciting economic
goals for the new year but we
are saddened that after nearly
five years in office the PLP
Government is still largely
dependent on the Kerzner
International Investment to dri-
ve the economy and stimulate
employment,when the PLP in
Opposition was so belligerent
to this investment which came
under the administration of
Prime Minister Hubert Ingra-
ham and the Free National
Movement.

The Workers Party feels
strongly that Prime Minister
Christie rightly deserves the
commendation and praise of the
nation for steering his party ide-
ology away from the dangerous
waters to which left wing forces
were driving it in opposing the
Kerzner investment. Bahami-
ans still recall the PLP's boastful
and wicked threat to “renegoti-
ate” the terms of the Heads of
Agreement with Kerzner Inter-
national (then Sun Internation-
al) during the general election
campaign of 2002.

It was a steady and level
headed Perry Christie who took
command of his erstwhile
organisation and whipped it into
line with the prevailing eco-
nomic realities of how business
is done in the 21st century
Bahamas while the old fogies
in the PLP and the strong
armed bag men of yesteryear

Wawa

letters@triobunemedia.net






tried to punctuate the fuller
development of the country
with antiquated and ruinous
ideas.

The PLP therefore not just
owes Perry Christie for leading
them to victory in 2002 but they
have not woken up to the real-
ity that it was Christie’s ideolo-
gy and his experience as a cor-
porate attorney which trans-
formed the outdated and out-
moded PLP economic ideolo-
gy of Pindling and crew into the
acceptable and workable plat-
form that it is today.

The PLP thus became attrac-
tive to the middle class under
Perry Christie despite the omi-
nous presence of many of the
old PLP guard hovering in the
background. Foreign investors
seem to find comfort and ease
with Perry Christie as compared
to the bleak period of 1987 to
1992 when the Pindling Gov-
ernment could not attract any
meaningful foreign investment.

The Workers Party fears that
Mr Christie may not have done
enough to cement his economic
ideology and policy on the PLP
and after his departure the PLP
will sink back into its old ways.
It is our advice, Mr Christie,
that any other platform of his
organisation must write into it
his personal economic policy
and ideology because the old
PLP platform of putting people

who are not productive before
things that require productive
people to move and stimulate
simply cannot work.

There can be no reward for
laziness and while the poor we
will always have with us the dri-
ve is to lift people up from
poverty by giving them an eco-
nomic stake in.a job and oppor- ~
tunity and education and not
by the way of an open-ended
welfare check.

The Workers Party feels that
Mr Christie’s own initiative in
driving new investment in The
Bahamas may have been ham-
pered by non progressives with-
in his own Government and he
has only himself to blame.

Now despite his very best and
gallant efforts he must come to
the Bahamian people driven by
the still fresh breeze of the.
Kerzner International invest-

‘ment which came under the

FNM but his party and the
nation should salute him for
hammering the PLP into
modernity and the capacity to
think outside the box.

The sad indictment for the
PLP as an organisation would
be that after five years Mr
Christie may still be the only
bright light bulb fantastic chan-
delier cheapened with synthetic
and plastic adornments.

Don’t deny positive
economic climate

EDITOR, The Tribune.

A RECENT Talk Show on
Love 97 discussed the compar-
ing of the Bahamas economy at
May, 2002 (last election) in con-
trast to December, 2006.

The pathetic ignorance of the
callers to the show was incredi-
ble — either no one can read
or has read or possibly we have
an excessive number of blind
people but it would seem the
majority have been living with
their-heads in the proverbial
sand.

Compare where the average
consumer can I presume ratio-
nalize? Residential Mortgages

in 2002 were costing you 9.20
per cent whilst in December,
2006 they had reduced to 7.83
per cent.’Consumer loans in
2002 cost you 13.81 per cent
whilst in December, 2006 they
dropped to 11.56 per cent.
These reductions are nothing
to sneeze about as this confirms
that the economy is far more
vibrant than it was in May, 2002
the fact is simple — the banks
have far more money to loan;

money coming from the vibran-.

cy of the strong economy and it
has only started.

Savings, such an-important
aspect for the future well-being
after retirement this grew in
what the Central Bank

describes as Savings Accounts
from in 2002 at $645.4 million to

in 2006 December at $950.7 mil-
lion...Isn’t that a growth of
$305.3 million or an aggregate
of $64.27 million since election,
2002? Fixed deposit accounts in
B$ in 2002 they were at $2,287.8
million and grew in December,
2006 to $2,776.1 million, a
growth of $488.3 million or
$102.8 million per year since
election, 2002!

How can anyone try to argue
that the Bahamas’ economy is
not a lot healthier than it was in
2002 unless of course they sim-
ply wish to be politically biased
for the sake of power?

Harbour Room
chef triumphs

By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - The Harbour
Room’s chef Samuel Favella
emerged as culinary champion
in the Chef Noel 2006 competi-
tion at the annual Festival Noel
fund-raiser at the Rand Nature
Centre.

Some 500 persons who
attended the event sampled
dishes prepared by several
restaurants on the island,
including Iries and China Beach
at the Westin Resort, Aqua fine
dining from Old Bahama Bay,
Ret Catering, and the Grouper
Grill of Ocean Reef Yacht
Club.

In addition to offering fine
food and wine, the occasion
gives local restaurants a chance
to compete for the title of top
chef on the island.

Carolyn Millighan, chairman
of the Festival Committee, said
the 500 guests decided on the
winner. The results were very

close this year, she said.

“This year’s winner was a
newcomer to the field who
managed to take the title from
two-time winner IRIES, of the
Westin Resort, formerly Our
Lucaya,” she said.

“This really has become one
of the highlights and real draws
for our event. ... Being crowned
Chef Noel is not just a title and

a plaque to showcase in the

restaurant, but the winning
team also wins gift certificates
from sponsors Bristol Wines
and Spirits and John Bull,
advertising packages from Cool
96 and.Bahama Buy and Sell,
a write-up in a local tourist pub-
lication and embroidered chef
uniforms with the Chef Noel
Logo from the Uniform Place in
Grand Bahama,” Millighan
said.

Jeff Butler, owner of Harbour
Room Restaurant at Port
Lucaya, was elated at captur-
ing top recognition in the culi-
nary challenge.

FREEPORT - The family of
Tiffany Smith is very upset that
a man charged in connection
with her murder was released
on bail, almost two years fol-
lowing his arrest.

Shavaughn Munnings, the
victim’s sister, said the family
is not taking the news very well
at all — especially Tiffany’s four
children.

“We were not even informed
that he was. being released and
when I heard that he was out I
got so weak...because it was like

Tiffany had died all over again,”
she said.

Tiffany Smith, 30, was found
in an apartment at Caravel

Beach with multiple stabs ~

wounds about the body on May
24, 2005.

She was taken to hospital,
where she was pronounced
dead on arrival. A man initial-
ly charged in connection with
the incident was recently
released on $35,000 bail.

Ms Munnings said that her
sister left behind four children
between the ages of 10 and 15
who are not coping well with
the tragedy.

Ms Munnings, who became
very emotional at one point,
says her worst fear is that the
suspect would attempt to flee
while on bail.

“T think that persons accused
of such vicious crimes should
not be granted bail,” she said.

Ms Munnings said she is also
concerned that granting bail to
suspects may discourage victims
of domestic violence from com-
ing forward to speak out.

Over the last few months,
several police officers have
expressed frustration with
courts granting bail to persons
accused of serious crimes.

AIDS Secretariat head calls.
for work discrimination end

By CLUNIS DEVANEY
Bahamas Information Services

The Director of the
HIV/AIDS Secretariat, Nurse
Rosa Mae Bain, has under-
scored the need to end
HIV/AIDS discrimination in
the workplace.

Nurse Bain said there are
qualified Bahamians not work-
ing because private employers
refuse to hire them because
they tested HIV positive.

She maintained that the
struggle to end this “blatant dis-
crimination” continues and that
the Secretariat is intensifying
efforts for legislation to end this
practice.

She admitted that the Anti-
Discrimination in the Work-
place Act has been passed by
Parliament, “but it is not
enforced to a large extent
because people are still dis-
criminating against those who
tested positive for HIV.”

Nurse Bain said there are pri-
vate companies in The
Bahamas that require job-seek-
ers to fill out applications dis-

closing whether he or she is

HIV positive: .. ra
The director is upset'dver this
form of procedure by the
employers and said until there is
something in the law to address
this, owners of private compa-
nies will continue to design their
applications as they please.
“We have been lobbying for
the relevant changes in the law
and that is definitely something
we will have to intensify our
efforts on,” said Nurse Bain.
She said there is also a subtle
form of discrimination in the
Public Service, and that “we
will have to clear up our own
act before we could put the
muzzle on the private sector.”
She maintained that there are

Bahamians possessing the skills
and requisite qualifications but
cannot find work because they
are HIV positive.

Nurse Bain finds another act
of discrimination against HIV
positive Bahamians equally dis-
tressing.

She blasted the banks and

insurance companies for the |

part they play in discriminating
against Bahamians seeking
mortgages to own homes.

According to Nurse Bain,
people with HIV are living
longer and, if given the oppor-
tunity, can satisfy a 10-year, 20-
year or 25-year mortgage on a
house.

She stressed the need for in-
depth education on HIV/AIDS.

“What we would like to see is
an educational corner in every
single business and in every sin-
gle institution where people can
get HIV/AIDS information,”
said Nurse Bain.

“We would like every single
institution and every business
place to invite those of us from
the resource committee and voi-
unteers who have been trained
to come out and assist persons
in dispelling the myth about

how HIV is: transmitted.:

Because of these myths there is
still gross ignorance.”

She said the Secretariat still
receives information where at
certain establishments excess
amounts of bleach are used in
bathrooms and kitchens, and
where people use Lysol spray
on telephones after someone
suspected of being HIV posi-
tive has used the instrument.

The director said there is still
a great deal of stigma attached
to the HIV/AIDS virus.

She disclosed that almost
7,000 people in The Bahamas
today are living with HIV or
full-blown AIDS.

$37, ,90

RUGG









“Of these persons,” she stat-
ed, “we only have just over
3, 000 of them who are on med-
ication. .

“Our big concern is that we
need to have approximately
another 2,000 people come in
who know they are infected and
who need to have special tests
done.”

Nurse Bain is urging HIV
positive people to come in so a
determination could be made
as to their status and the appro-
priate medication prescribed.

“But the challenge is, people
are afraid of the stigma and dis-
crimination,” said Nurse Bain.
“The stigma and discrimination
is causing a significant number
of our people to stay away. .

“What can we do? The first
thing that we need to do is edu-
cate the general public so they
would stop stigmatising. They
would stop discriminating and
people can then come forward
and have the necessary tests
done.”

She categorised HIV today
as a chronic disease like dia-
betes and hypertension, which
means that if medication is tak-

en as prescribed, one can lead a

long, productive life ‘and be able
to “continue to contribute to
society, continue to pay your
mortgage and continue to pay
for your car.”

Nurse Bain emphasised that
people continue to “die unnec-
essarily” because they are afraid
to come forward for special
tests.

Bahamian alumni

\US Ambassador John Rood
hosted a reception at his resi-
dence for Bahamian alumni of
St John’s University in Min-
nesota.

Because of the close relations
between St John’s and St
Augustine’s College in Nassau,
Bahamians have been attend-
ing this Mid-western institution
since 1932, claiming such grad-
uates as Eugene Dupuch,
Arthur Barnett, Leviticus
Adderley, Andrew Curry, Mon-
signor Preston Moss, and at
least 250 others in recent times.

Other guests in Nassau for
the occasion included Steve
Halverson, director of the
Board of Regents of St John’s,
Prince Wallace, the first
Bahamian on the Board of
Regents, Brother Benedict
Leuthner, treasurer of the uni-
versity, Fr Finian McDonald
and Fr Mel Taylor, prior of St
Augustine’s.

More than 50 Bahamian
alumni attended the event and
pledged their commitment to
the establishment of the “Leviti-
cus Adderley Scholarship
Fund”.

This fund will ensure that
Bahamians continue to attend
St John’s and maintain the lega-
cy of this outstanding Bahamian
graduate who contributed so
much to both St John’s and St
Augustine’s College.

Basil Christie, a graduate of
both institutions, was elected
president of the SJU Alumni
Association with the responsi-
bility of registering all gradu-
ates from 1932 to 2006 and
soliciting their support for the
Scholarship Fund.

Earlier that day Ambassador
Rood hosted a luncheon at his
residence for the special guests
and Archbishop Patrick Pinder.

Ambassador Rood acknowl-
edged the valuable role the
Benedictine.:monks of St John’s
played in the development of
The Bahamas since their arrival
in the 1890s and expressed his



‘institution.

Nurses urged to push
highest care standards

NURSES have been urged to promote
the highest possible standard of practice,
and encourage professional development
and educational advancement for nurses.

“Continue to ensure all people irre-
spective or nationality, race, colour or
social origins have optimal nursing care,”
said Airport Authority human resources
manager, Olive Forbes.

She was speaking during the Nurses
Association of the Commonwealth of the
Bahamas’ installation of officers.

“The world is ever-changing so be force-
ful to enunciate the standards of nursing
and promote their implementation,” she
said. ,

“You must stimulate and encourage
proficiency among nurses and please, con-
tinue to participate in the national health-
care campaign.”

asked. “How do nurses care for their
patients? Are you showing love on a dai-

truly prepared for the unexpected?

“Nursing should be a‘calling because if
you do not like people, and some do not,
then you would definitely not like sick
people. You see, if nursing is a calling,
then you would love what you are doing.”

The executive team includes president,
Prescola Rolle; first vice-president,

The membership is made up of registered

The association is the premier voice for
the profession. It promotes excellence,
and also influences policies through local,
regional and international networks, Mrs
Symonette explained.

It is a part of the regional Caribbean
Nursing Organisation and the Interna-
tional Council of Nursing (ICN), which

Last King’s reign endures,
des pite avoiding Amin horrors

By JASON DONALD

_ THE LAST KING

OF SCOTLAND

Starring: Forest Whitaker,

. James McAvoy

THE awards season usually
offers an opportunity for many
smaller movies to gain a new
audience when a particular cast
member starts grabbing the
headlines.

Such is the case with The Last

~ already bagging him several tro-

But, while he’s undoubtedly
strong in the role, there is much

“. more to the movie than one
- actor’s showcase.

This fictionalised version of
real events, opens with a young,

’ freshly-graduated Scottish doc-

‘tor Nick Garrigan (McAvoy)

seeking adventure.
He randomly picks Uganda
for his travels, and arrives in the

“country amid the coup which

brings Amin to power.

He begins working at.a small
understaffed hospital but soon
lands himself an opportunity to
work for the government as
Amin’s personal physician.

Despite his initial scepticism,
he is eventually charmed by the
president and becomes, not only
his doctor, but his closest per-
sonal adviser.

Over time, however, Amin

becomes paranoid about his
potential enemies and Nick is
soon trapped in a world of mis-
trust, danger and death.

The first half of The Last

strongest. There is a likable
naivete to Garrigan and his
falling under the spell of Amin
is utterly believable. Whitaker
makes the president seem jovial

All in the heart





when there is a hint of ruthless-
ness, the young doctor appears
exhilarated rather than horri-
fied.

But when the film attempts
to. turn from drama to thriller,
the credibility begins to unravel.

While it may have been inten-
tional to show us only a little of
the crimes of Amin’s adminis-
tration it certainly dilutes the
feeling of danger. By keeping
the horrors taking place in the
country distant, there’s a risk
that the audience, like Garrigan,
will feel safer than it should. So
when violence eventually makes
an appearance, it seems unlike-
ly and slightly contrived.

Still, there are other, more
successful themes here. Garrig-
an’s arrogance in seeing the
whole experience as an adven-
ture in a foreign country and
then having a false sense of enti-
tlement to British help when it
goes wrong, is well handled.
And Amin’s ability to entertain
the international press, even as
his nation falls apart, is both
chilling and frustrating.

So while it has its flaws, The.
Last King of Scotland is still
leaps ahead of your standard
mainstream fare.

It’s well acted and directed
and is sure to spark debate:
when the lights come up.

face months of rehabilitation.

Orthopaedic surgeon at Aventura Hospital,
Dr Michael G. Dennis, told the Miami Herald
that there is a possibility that he may never regain
"full function" in his legs.

The airline has issued a statement saying that it
regrets the incident.-

"American Eagle employees immediately
responded to Mr McCarthy, arranged for prompt
medical care and stayed with him continuously,
providing for his care and personal safety, until he
departed with his acquaintance for Florida," the
airline said in a statement.

However, Mr McCarthy's business associate,
Tom Conlan, who was due to travel with him
that day, told the Miami Herald that American
Eagle repeatedly refused to arrange the medical
transport, claiming the accident was not their
fault.

Mr McCarthy - who owns Aircraft and Instru-
ment Services, an aircraft maintenance company
- had been in George Town for a-day, meeting
with Mr Conlan, owner of Sky Limo, a Fort Laud-
erdale-based air charter company, to talk about a
possible contract to work on his planes.

The fall occurred after he was informed once on
the plane that he would have to check his bag in
planeside because it did not fit in the overhead
locker.

Ax he headed out onto the staircase, he alleges
he heard the flight attendant call out to him, say-
ing ''Sir, don't go out there."



"T had the bag in my left hand and waved to °



them to come get it," he told the Miami Herald. «

Then he felt the flight attendant tap his shoul-
der to tell him not to go, and he lost his balance.

"T must have been teetering just enough that I
started to fall,’ Mr McCarthy said. Though the
stairs were still in place, they were at.a steep
angle, the handrail was low, and there was noth-
ing to grab, he said. He fell over the staircase at
least 10 or 12 feet to the ground.

Mr McCarthy said the only thing which stopped
him from landing head-first was years of martial
arts training.

"I have quick reflexes, and I don't panic,'' he
said.

It was reported that he pushed off with his feet
as he started to fall, dropped the bag, and tried to
roll so he would land on his feet, not his head.

A British passenger came to his aid on the tar-
mac, he recalled, instructing him to breathe
deeply, and telling him: "We're going to get
through this." :

An emergency medical technician arrived short-
ly after, and he was placed on a stretcher to await
an ambulance. He was then transported to a near-
by clinic. However, the first clinic had no X-ray
facilities, and he was moved on to another.

Initially assessed in Nassau, Mr Conlan and
Mr McCarthy flew to Florida at about 4.30pm
that day, about eight hours after the accident.

At Aventura, a surgeon discovered McCarthy
had broken two bones around the knee joint into
"numerous small pieces." He was also suffering
from severe swelling and blisters by that stage.

Mr Rolle at Civil Aviation said he was unaware
of any other similar accidents at the Nassau air-
port.

“We can therefore describe
the programme as a success,
with negligible impact on trav-
ellers. The American public
strongly supports these new
rules, as shown by a recent Zog-

gramme a 76 per cent approval

INA huge’ game for the
Bahamas Association of
Independent Secondary
Schools’ senior boys bas-
ketball, the' Jordan Prince
William Falcons came out
with the biggest victory.

In the battie of the unde-
feated, the Falcons took
apart the St. John’s Giants
61-46 at St. John’s yester-
day to remain undefeated
at 11-0 to'control the top.
of the standings.

“Our trap was working
very well. We saw that
most of the teams in the
BAISS don’t have that
guard ability that we have
to handle the ball, so we
decided that we were going
to pressure them,” said Fal-
cons’ head coach Godfrey
McQuay.

With Rashad Williams

directing the show, the Fal-
cons used their height
advantage as well as they
set the tempo from the first
quarter and they never
looked back as they cruised
to victory.

Coach McQuay said he
wasn’t surprised at all at
how well they played.

“The surprising part was
how we allowed them to
come back in the game,” he
pointed out.

“But we realised that a
lot of fouls were happening
on the opposite side of the

‘ball, so we decided to relax

a little.

“But the trap was always
there for us.”

The Falcons used an
effective full court trap as
they managed to take the
ball out of the hands of the
Giants, forcing them to get
away from their up-tempo
game.

Williams, who at times
had to play against a box
and one defence, scored a
game high 15 to lead Jor-
dan Prince William. Den-
netin Swain had nine, Pete
Smith eight and Kentino
Jackson chipped in with
Six. .

Potential

After. the win, McQuay
said they know they have
the potential to play well,
but their goal is not just to
win the BAISS pennant
and championship, but to
concentrate on the big one
- the Hugh Campbell
Basketball Classic next
month.

For St. John’s, Joshua
Evans led the way with 11
points, Ricardo Moultrie
had nine, Shanarj Wallace
seven, Antone Francis six
and Taj-mon Thompson
finished with four.

Coach Sherwin Major
said they sealed their own
fate when they missed more
than 30 free throws.

“We didn’t get blow out,
but those free throws were
our nightmare,” he

stressed. “I’ve been preach-
ing that all year and we’re
been going over that, but it
just didn’t come through
today.”

The Giants fell behind
18-7 at the end of the first
quarter and. 32-18 at the
half before it was extend-
ed to 44-27 after the third
quarter.

But throughout the sec-
ond half, St. John’s put a
dent into the lead, only to
watch as Jordan Prince
William soared back to stay
ahead of them.

While it was their first
loss for the season, with
two more games to play
before the playoffs, Major
said they just have to
regroup and get ready for
the postseason.

“This loss won’t hurt us,”
he said.

However, McQuay said it
has given his Falcons the
incentive, knowing that
they are capable of beating
the Giants, if they have to
meet again in the playoffs
or the championship.

VETERAN bodybuilder
Baldwin Darling intends to
put on a mega awards ban-
quet to honour some of the
legends in the sport of
bodybuilding and power-
lifting next month.

Darling is planning on
bringing the legends to
Grand Bahama for what he
call a “21 Heroes Salute”
as he pays tribute to those
bodybuilder.

“I’ve had this idea on my
mind from a young boy
growing up,” Darling
reflected. “I want to hon-
our those persons who have
made an impact in my life.

“It was through their
guidance, I was able to
become a champion and go
on to compete internation-
ally. Now I’m training peo-

ple to continue in the

sport.”

Salute

Arthur Eldon, the oldest
living bodybuilder from
Abaco, will be the centre
piece at the banquet. But
Baldwin said a special
salute will also be given to
Hubert Wong, Richard
Demeritte and Michael
Curtis.

Additionally, Tony Car-
roll, Glen Wells and Kings-
ley Poitier will be honoured
for their contribution to the

sport.
~ The others to be hon-
oured on the night are
Richard Clarke, Val Bur-
rows, Dwight Palacious,
Sam Williams, Cliff Wilson,
Henry Charlton, Enoch

Poitier, Ezra Russell, Neil
Dean, Hercules Rolle,
George Murray, Emos
Saunders, Rudy Pinder,
Dave McKlewhite, Lenny

Petra Brice.

Expected to be honoured
posthumously are Lynden
Smith, Joe Cartwright,
Prince Mike Hall, Flint
Bridgewater, Natasha
Munroe, Basil Williams,
Victor Lockhart and
Lawrence ‘Dinky’ Bain —
who died recently.

Darling said,“I was call-
ing Tony Carroll this morn-
ing to tell him what I was
doing and I found out that
he’s very low.

“So that’s why I say it’s
important for me to do this
for these people while they
are alive.”.

Darling said the venue

and date has not yet been
confirmed. Depending on
what venue they secure,
Darling said it will deter-
mine whether or not the
event will take place at the
end of February or early
March. |

“This is a personal thing
that I’m doing, but hope-
fully this will become an
annual event where we
recognise other body-
builders who have made a
contribution to the sport,”
he summed up.

Caribs enjoy last gasp win
over defending champions

Bj BASKETBALL
By BRENT STUBBS
_ Senior Sports Reporter

THE College of the Bahamas
Lady Caribs and guard Christine
_ Sinclair celebrated Thursday
night as if they had just won the
New Providence Women’s Bas-
ketball Association championship
crown.

Sinclair was hoisted i in the air
after she drilled a three-point shot
with just 0.2 seconds left on the
clock, lifting the Lady Caribs to a
stunning 60-59 victory over the
defending champions Johnson

Lady Truckers.

It was the second consecutive
night that the College of the
Bahamas came away from the
DW Davis Gym with a victory
over their arch-rival, following
their decision over the Cleaning
Center Lady Angels as they
maintained their lead in the

NPWBA’s standings, improving °

to 9-1.

The Truckers fell to 7-3 in a
two-way tie for second place with
the Lady Angels, who rebounded
in the opening game from Tues-
day’s loss by routing the Defence
Force Bluewaves 85-60. The Lady

Bluewaves fell to 3-7.

Alexis Russell played big in the
paint as she finished with 18
points and 11 rebounds, all game
high honours. But it was Sinclair,
whose 12th point on her only
three-pointer that deflated the
Lady Truckers at the end.

“We had to dig deep because
we were down. But when they
said it was only a couple seconds
left, I decided to put it up,” said
Sinclair, who was 5-for-12 from
the field and 1-for-2 from both
the free throw and three point
line.

Lady Truckers’ coach Perry

Darling said Sinclair’s prayers
were answered.

“She threw up.a prayer and her
prayer was answered,” Darling
said. “We knew they had a bigger
team than us down low, but our
defence stepped up in the second
half and we executed well.

“We had the game. We were
‘tight there. But she threw up a
prayer and her prayer was
answered. But if I see them again,
I know we will beat them.”

Sinclair said none of the teams
in the league want to see them
win, so they have to play extra
hard to win. She said as long as

Super Bow! golf event to raise foothall funds

lm By DENISE MAYCOCK
- Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT — The Mike Jones Founda-
tion and the three Rotary Clubs are hosting
a Super Bowl NFL golf tournament and
party to raise funds for the development
of a youth football league on Grand
Bahama.

Freeport resident Mike Kelly, who rep-
resents the Mike Jones Foundation, said a
number NFL players are expected to trav-
el to Freeport during the weekend of Feb-
ruary 2 to 4 to attend the fundraising events.

Mr Kelly and the MJ foundation were
very instrumental in getting a youth football
league started three years ago on Grand
Bahama, where some 250 youngsters are
enrolled in the programme.

He said funds raised from the events will
go towards the further development of the
football league/programme on Grand
‘Bahama. He said that the Rotary Club has
agreed to help form a board to perpetuate
the programme.

The weekend of events will kick off on
Friday, February 2, with a NFL golf tour-
nament at the Reef Golf Course in Lucaya.
A football game will be held at the Grand
Bahama Sports Centre on Saturday, and
the winner will play in the Grand Bahama
Super Bowl game at 1pm on Sunday.

Mr Kelly said the weekend will climax
with a Super Bowl party at the Freeport
Rugby Club on Settler’s Way following
Sunday’s game. A silent auction and numer-
ous prizes will be up to grabs, including
first class round trip tickets, an NFL golf
match player’s party, and tickets to the 2008

Super Bowl in Phoenix, Arizona.

“This will be a fantastic Super Bowl
weekend with NFL athletes...and so we
are hopeful to raise a lot of money that will
benefit the youth of Grand Bahama.

“We hope everyone will come out and
participate and support the events because
we have worked for several years to get a
youth football league started and it is final-
ly come to fruition,” said Mr Kelly.

Rotarian Eunice Morris, golf tournament
coordinator, said about 18 NFL players will
be participating in the tournament, which
starts at 12 noon.at the Reef Course.

She said that the cost of registration is
$400 per team and the first 18 teams to reg-
ister will have an NFL player on their team.

“We are encouraging all avid golfers to
come out and register because we are also
giving away a 2007 Jeep Cherokee for ‘Hole
in One’

Ms Morris said that an NFL alumni from
the Dolphins is also working on getting
some footballs for NFL players to sign and
auction off.

She said that businesses, companies and
corporate entities can sponsor a hole and
have their company’s name or logo up in
lights on the golf course. «

“We are looking for major sponsors for
these events.

We are expecting an exciting and inter-
esting weekend for persons attending the
super bowl party because they will have
the opportunity to take photographs with
NFL players and get their autographs.

Mike Stafford, president of Rotary Club
of Freeport, said they are happy to be part-
ners with the Mike Jones Foundation to

assist in youth development on Grand
Bahama.

“It is a fantastic opportunity for the busi-
ness community to support MJF and the
Rotary Club’s golf tournament and Super
Bowl weekend because all funds raised will
go back into youth development in our
community.

“We would like to encourage business
leaders, companies and corporations, and
anchor projects on the island to throw some
financial support behind us because we
need to get youth back involved in sports
development and vocational programmes,”
Mr Stafford said.

Mr Kelly said there limited sporting pro-
grammes on Grand Bahama because of
lack of sponsorship. He said many youth
programmes are “short lived” due to lack of
funding.

“We are trying to a get a programme that
is comprehensive that will support the
sports that don’t typically get sponsorship.
The soccer programmes here are Wonder-
fully funded, but a lot of the other youth
programmes are very short lived because
they just don’t have the funding. So, the
intent is to try and get a team together that
can allow sport activities to be available
for children year round.”

He said the football league was started
three years ago and the first camp drew
some 600 participants over a four day peri-
od. The league currently caters to teens in
high schools.

Mr Kelly noted that the league has final-
ly received some 150 protective pads, hel-
mets, and jerseys to play full contact foot-
ball.

Newbold and Russell get the job

‘done inside, they can win.

Russell, who connected on 9-
of-16 from the field, was the first
member of the College of the
Bahamas team to congratulate
Sinclair on her performance.

“When I saw her shoot the ball,

I just had a feeling it was going
n,” Russell said. “Everybody
played good game and with the
score so close, we needed a shot
like that to win.”

Russell, who teamed up with
Kavionne Newbold for the Lady
Caribs, said she was inspired after
they beat the Lady Angels.

“I feel we can go all the way
and win the pennant. If we are
fortunate, we can even win the
championship,” she explained.

In what could have easily been
viewed as a championship game,
both teams played extremely well
to entertain the fans in the gym as
they traded the lead in the sec-
ond half.

COB dominated the first half
as Diasti Delancy directed the
show and Russell powered inside
as they helped secure their 16-10
first quarter lead and maintained
a 28-22 advantage at the half.

But in a complete turnaround
in the second half, the Lady
Truckers rolled back to take:a 29-
28 lead, only to watch as the Lady
Caribs surged back on top, 48-40,
at the end of the period.

Again, both teams picked it up
in the fourth before the Lady
Truckers got a three-pointer from
Shantell Rolle and a jumper from
Glenda Gilcud to tie the score at
55-55. A free throw by Janice
Williams gave them a 56-55 lead.

After Delancy wiggled inside
for a lay-up and a Lady Caribs’
57-56 lead, Antoinette Knowles
scored on a baseline jumper to
put the Lady Truckers out front
58-57. A free throw by Stacy Hor-
ton extended it to 59-57.

But Sinclair pulled up between
a pair of Lady Truckers’ defend-
ers and sank the three-pointer
through'the nets for the game
winning basket.

Delancy finished with 11 points
and eight assists; Alyse Dean had
nine points and Newbold ended
up with eight points to round out
COB scoring.

Gilcud led the Lady Truckers
with 17, Shantelle Rolle and Hor-
ton both had 14 - Horton with 10 -
rebounds as well - and Janice
Williams added 12 pon with
nine rebounds.

@ Lady Angels 85, Lady Blue-
waves 60: Sharelle Cash and
Suzette McKenzie combined for
39 points for the Cleaning Centre.

Cash had 21 with seven
rebounds and four assists;
McKenzie had 18 points, 10
assists and five rebounds; Kecia
Smith had 14 points, five
rebounds and three assists and
Keisha Richardson helped out
with 14 points and seven
rebounds.

McKezie said it’s good to be
back making her contribution to
the team’s bid to regain the title
they relinquished to the Lady
Truckers,

“T just think we need to get our
conditioning back and we could
win some more games,” she
insisted. “It’s going to be hard
because every team out there has
talent.

“It won’t be easy to win. Every
game you have to come out and
play hard because each and every
team has some talent. We just

‘have to play some defence. Our

offence is there. We just need
some defence.”

Former Lady Angels’ swing-
woman Lannes Bennons had a’
game high 23 points with four
rebounds and Natasha Miller had
22 points and 11 rebounds while
Varel Davis, another former Lady
Angels player, finished with 11
points and four assists.

Davis said it was always fun
playing against her former team,
but feels her Lady Bluewaves
could play much better.

“We’re just not having the full
team out, so it’s putting a lot of
pressure on the starting five,” she
reflected. “But if we get our full
team out, we can play with any of
the teams in the league.”

The Lady Angels led this game
from the first quarter when they
went up 17-11.

Although the Lady Bluewaves
managed to keep the digit under
ten points, they never led the rest
of the way.

MP candidates
pledge help to

ease feud fears ©

By ALEXANDRIO
MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

FOREIGN minister Fred
Mitchell and his FNM chal-
lenger Dr Jacinta Higgs have
pledged to provide Fox Hill
with social aid and support fol-
lowing’a dispute between two-
youths that left.a house in
flames late Thursday night.

Two teenagers were involved
in an argument that resulted in
one of the youths being severe-
ly injured with a cutlass.

‘The incident led to one
teenager being taken to hospi-
tal, but the conflict did not end
there. A group of men went »
into the alleged attacker’s yard
and beat him up.

Now it is alleged that, while -

the mother of one boy was at
the hospital, a group of men
sought vengeance by torching
her house and starting a fire in
two places.

Some Fox Hill residents claim
it was the same group of men

that had beaten up one of the -

boys after the initial row.

The home was burnt to the
ground, leaving some Fox-
Hillians fearing an ongoing feud
between the families.

Police have also confirmed
that they suspect arson in
respect of the destroyed home
and say a full investigation has
begun.

The Tribune contacted Min-
ister Mitchell, MP for Fox Hill,
and Dr Higgs to ascertain what
they knew of the incident and
how they planned to help con-

stituents. :
According to Minister
Mitchell, the Internal Security
Division (ISD) of the police
force had already stepped up
patrols in the area to make sure
tensions don’t escalate to the
point where there could be
additional violence in the com-
“munity: :
“ve also asked the people

at the Urban Renewal Office -

to begin to pay special atten-
tion to the area,” said Mr
Mitchell.

He said that Urban Renewal
and psychiatrist Dr David Allen
were speaking with young men
in Fox Hill to defuse any fur-
ther tension.

Mr Mitchell also pledged that
the Urban Renewal office in the
area would provide assistance
to the family whose home was
destroyed.

FNM election candidate Dr
Jacinta Higgs told The Tribune
she wanted to play a supportive
role during resolution of the
conflict.

“My role at this time is of a
supportive capacity because we
all know that all of our families

- are participants in matters just
as this,” said Dr Higgs. °

She described the general
mood as “sombre and silent.”

“As I moved around,” said
Dr Higgs, “I told everyone that
this is a time for us to heal and
pray.”

Di Higgs said she was appeal-
ing to the public to donate food
or clothes to the family affected
by the fire.

Gunmen
shoot

nightclub
patron

By NATARIO McKENZIE



A LOCAL nightclub was the
scene of a fatal shooting early
yesterday morning when armed
gunmen opened fire.on a
patron.

It was around Jam when a
man approached a security offi-
cer at Fantasy Nightclub on
Madeira Street and expressed
his interest in entering the
establishment.

Reports say the security offi-
cer was about to conduct a rou-
tine search when the man pro-
duced a handgun. Moments lat-
er a second assailant appeared,
armed with a shotgun.

The gunmen forced the secu-
rity guard to the main entrance
door of the club which was
opened by a patron.

One gunman fired a shot at

the patron, hitting him in the

chest. The victim, who police |

had not identified up to press
time yesterday, was taken to
hospital where he died a short
time later.

The gunmen fled the scene
and, according to reports, a
black sports utility vehicle was
seen speeding off from the

- Man falls

from plane

By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

An injured man is planning
to sue American Eagle after
he fell from the back door of a
plane onto the tarmac at Lyn-
den Pindling International
Airport - injuring his leg and
heel so severely that he esti-
mates his medical costs will
reach $1 million.

Mr Kevin McCarthy, 46, of
Deerfield Beach, Florida, suf-
fered his injuries on the morn-
ing of January 3 while board-
ing a flight from Nassau to
Miami.

Since then, he has been
recuperating in Aventura
Hospital, Florida, having
undergone six surgeries on his
left leg to relieve swelling and
repair fractures to his knee.

He is scheduled to have
surgery on his shattered right
ankle and anticipates that the
cost of the treatment may
reach $1 million.

"I'm in so much agony it's
ridiculous,'' the passenger -
who did not have health insur-
ance at the time of the acci-
dent - told the Miami Herald
from his hospital bed.

’ In his account of the fall
from the staircase at the back

of the plane - known as as an
airstair - Mr McCarthy says
that his leg ended up "near
his face" and had to be
"straightened out" by an
emergency medical techni-
cian.

Bahamian aviation author-
ities were unaware of the inci-
dent until the Miami Herald
queried them about it days
ago.

‘Yesterday, Mr Pat Rolle,
manager of flight standards at
Civil Aviation, said that his
department would not be
investigating the incident. As
far as they were aware, it.was
not due to an “operational
failure."

However, a Federal Avia-
tion Authority investigation
is now underway to determine
if any of their rules were vio-
lated after Mr McCarthy per-
sonally alerted them about his
fall.

According to the Miami
Herald, American Eagle had
failed to report the incident.

Mr McCarthy's doctor said
he will not be able to put any
weight on his legs for at least
eight to ten weeks, and will

The embassy said the US

tion of the new passport

“In the first three days under

“Of nearly 7,000 Americans

represents less than 0.15 per

Bahamas not in full compliance
with the new regulations.

m SOCCER
GUANGZHOU, China

IT WAS Lauren
Cheney’s first game for
the United States. She
was playing in an 80,000-
seat stadium in China and
facing Germany, the
world’s No. 1 women’s
soccer team.

Hey, guess what. The
19-year-old forward was
trembling. 7

“Before the game I was
very nervous, a little bit
rattled,” said Cheney, fol- .
lowing a 0-0 draw Friday
on the opening day of the
Four Nations tournament.

The Americans and
Germans brought young
teams to this event in '
southern.China, each rest-
ing a half dozen likely
starters in the upcoming

- World Cup in China,
which open Sept. 10. In
the other game, China
defeated England 2-0 on

- first half goals by Zhang

~-Ying and Han Duan.

American coach Greg .
Ryan is searching for a
third striker to go with

top forwards Kristine Lil- ie
--ly and Abby Wambach, i

who are home resting.
Cheney is a candidate,

*, as are Natasha Kai,

Heather O’Reilly and
Lindsay Tarpley. They all
_- played Friday.

'.>. “Before the game I was .

pretty excited to be start-
ing,” Cheney added. “But
I kind of tensed up. I felt
like my whole body was

-* clenching all the time.”

Ryan, who is using this
tournament to test young
talent, sympathized with
Cheney, who was rested

‘in the second half.

over the nerves, but you
. have to be on the field to
- do that,” he said.

Gonzalez dominates Haas to set -
up finals matchup with Federer —

@ TENNIS
MELBOURNE,
Australia
Associated Press

TENTH-SEEDED Fer-
nando Gonzalez put on
another brilliant display of
tennis Friday, sprinting all
over the court to rip winners
at will as he dominated Ger-
many’s Tommy Haas 6-1, 6-
3, 6-1 to reach the Australian
Open final.

It was a performance rem-
iniscent of top-ranked Roger
Federer’s rout of Andy Rod-
dick in the other semifinal a
night earlier. Gonzalez was
nearly flawless, leaving the
capacity crowd gasping and
the 12th-seeded Haas
stunned and frustrated.

“It was a really good day
for me,” Gonzalez said. “I
have been playing great ten-
nis. I am enjoying it a lot.”

Gonzalez had _ zero
unforced errors in the first
and third sets and only three
for the match — “One was
really stupid,” he said — to
go along with 42 winners that
accounted for more than half
of his 82 points.

For Haas, it. was over-
whelming.

“J played actually pretty
good tennis,” Haas said.
“Every time I tried to do



came up with the answer.
That’s quite frustrating. I just
have to hand it to him, tip
the hat, say that’s too good.
Nothing I could have done.”

Gonzalez, who had never
reached a Grand Slam semi-

er on Sunday evening in the
championship match.
“Roger is No. 1 one by
far,” Gonzalez said. “But
there is only one match left.
I have lost many times to
him, but I know that I am
playing much better than the
last time that we played. I’m
going to try to do the same
thing that I’ve been doing.
“I’m playing the most
important match in my life.
He has to lose sometime.”
The third-seeded pair of
Zimbabwe’s Cara Black and
South Africa’s Liezel Huber
ended the run of Taiwan’s
Chan Yung-jan and Chuang
Chia-jung to win the wom-
en’s doubles title 6-4, 6-7 (4),
6-1. The Taiwanese team had

she and Kevin Ullyett of



ther had to make any
great saves.

Ryan, who took over
almost two years ago, is
unbeaten in 32 games
when they have been
decided in regulation
time. His only blemish
was on penalty kicks last
year against Germany.

“The main goal was to
get the young players on

‘the field and to experi-
ence what it’s like playing
against Germany,” Ryan
said. “This is an opportu-
nity they are not going to
get very often.”

Both teams had trouble
keeping the ball. There
were good spells and then
lulls, with solid play from
midfielders Lori Chalup-
ny and Leslie Osborne.

“We lacked consistency,
and at time reverted to

.. just kicking the ball,”
Ryan added.

Germany was without
star forward Birgit Prinz,
a three-time FIFA player

‘. of the year. Other missing
players, likely to be
starters in the World Cup,
included: Kerstin Gare-

-. frekes, Renate Lingor,

Minnert, who are either
studying or injured.

Zimbabwe lost in the mixed
doubles semifinals 6-2, 7-5

and Elena Likhovtseva. In
the other semifinal, Max
Mirnyi and Victoria Azaren-
ka of Belarus ousted Jonas
Bjorkman of Sweden and
Francesca Schiavone of Italy
6-2, 6-3.

The women’s final on Sat-
urday pits top-seeded Maria
Sharapova, the reigning U.S.
Open champion, against
two-time champion Serena
Williams, unseeded while
coming back. from a bad
knee that limited her to four

. tournaments last year.

Music from a nearby con-
cert drifted into packed Rod
Laver Arena on a brisk Aus-
tralia Day evening Friday.
Fireworks followed the
match, but Gonzalez provid-
ed plenty before then.

Once known for a weak
backhand and a fragile psy-
che, Gonzalez has improved
both significantly in recent
months and has won over
thousands of fans here with
his powerful serve and fore-
hand.

He was excited about the
match statistics.

“I have been playing many
years with 45 unforced errors
and three winners!” he said,
adding that he had never
made so few mistakes in a
match. .

The Chilean ran off 11
points to start the first set,
and Haas ended up with
only 12 points in the seven

court on two other occasions. :

Haas tried to pick on Gon-
zalez’s backhand, but the
Chilean just kept getting
back slice after slice until he
got a chance to wind up ona
forehand and send zingers
into the corners.

A group of vocal German
fans included five young men
with “Tommy Haas” spelled
out on their bare chests and
“Bye Bye Gonzalez” on

their backs, cheered for Haas.

between points, but their
support hardly helped. °

Gonzalez, who never faced
a break point, finished it off
with a backhand crosscourt
winner for his seventh ser-
vice break to end it in I
hour, 31 minutes — eight
minutes longer than Feder-
er’s win over Roddick.

“I’m obviously trying to
think what I could have done
differently after the match
like this. It’s really hard,”
said Haas, who added that
Gonzalez made him under-
stand how Roddick felt.

“Pretty much everything
he touched tonight seemed
to go his way.

“He’s- playing some good
tennis, that’s for sure.”

@ SOUTH African captain Graeme Smith plays a stroke as Pakistan's wicket keeper Kamran Akmal anticipates a catch on the first day of a last test match at Newlands
stadium in Cape Town, South Africa, Friday, Jan. 26, 2007.

B CRICKET
CAPE TOWN,
South Africa
Associated Press

GRAEME SMITH scored
64 to help South Africa reach
131-5 at stumps Friday on day
one of the third and final test
against Pakistan.

Pakistan was earlier bowled
out for 157 with Mohammad
Yousuf top scoring with 83 at
the Newlands Stadium.
Makhaya Ntini had 4-44 from
13.1 overs and Jacques Kallis
4-42 off 11 overs before tea.

"It's not about getting
another hundred - it's for the
team," Yousuf said. "If they
had stayed with me, maybe
we could have got to 200.

Yousuf hit 10 fours and a
six off 131 balls. Imran Farhat
(20) and Mohammad Hafeez
(10) were the only other Pak-
istan batsmen to reach double
figures.

"I've never seen a two-col-
or pitch before," Yousuf said.
"So Pakistan are still in with
a chance, if we play well."

South Africa started bad-
ly, losing opener Boeta Dip-
penaar leg-before-wicket for
a duck in the opening over.
Hashim Amla also fell to
Mohammad Asif, edging a
delivery to Kamran Akmal
for 2.

Kallis and Smith put on 80
runs for the third wicket,
until Kallis got an inside edge
while driving a ball fram
Mohammad Sami and was
caught by Akmal for 28.

Smith hit 10 fours from 79
balls before he was out to a

one-handed catch by Pakistan

captain Inzamam-ul-Haq at
second slip off the bowling
off Shahid Nazir.

A.B. de Villiers was bowled
for 11 by a googly from Dan-
ish Kaneria to continue his
poor form.

Ashwell Prince was not out
on 18 with nightwatchman
Paul Harris yet to score.

Asif was the best of Pak-
istan's bowlers with 2-20.

"Were going to have to
play well tomorrow," South
Africa coach Mickey Arthur.
"You're never really in on
this wicket, there's something
happening all the time. We

set ourselves the goal of get-
ting a lead of 100, but 50 or
60 could be as good as a hun-
dred in a normal test."

Smith won the toss and
sent Pakistan in to bat in an
effort to win a series tied at 1-
1.

Ntini struck in the eighth
over, having Hafeez caught
at third slip by De Villiers for
10. In the previous over, De
Villiers had dropped Farhat
with a difficult chance off the
bowling of Dale Steyn.

In the 12th over, Ntini got

Yasir Hameed to drive out-
side the off stump when he
had 7, and Kallis took an easy
head-high catch at second
slip.

Kallis himself came on to
bowl to replace Steyn, and,
in his second over, Farhat
played a drive at a ball drift-
ing away to give Smith a
catch at first slip.

Younis Khan, who has bat-
ted well in the series, looked
uncomfortable throughout his
stay. and he was out slashing
at a Kallis delivery when he
had 8. De Villiers took a
good overhead catch high to
his left.

Pakistan went to lunch at
70-4 and Inzamam fell
straight after the break when
he edged a delivery from
Andrew Hall to Boucher for
6. °

Akmal was caught by De
Villiers off Steyn for a duck
before Mohammad Sami and
Yousuf put on a 60-run stand.
Sami was finally out for 4,
caught by Boucher off Kallis
and Pakistan was 150-7.

Within seven runs, Shahid
Nazir (3) was caught by Har-
ris off Ntini, Kaneria (0) was
caught by Boucher off Kallis,
and Yousuf was caught at
wide mid-off by Prince off
Ntini.

Opening lead — queen of spades.

This remarkable hand, played
many years ago by Claggett Bowie
of Baltimore, features an extraordi-
nary endplay.

Bowie had bid six hearts fully
aware that his partner was void of
spades and that his ace was therefore
of doubtful value. However, he also
thought that his six-heart bid might
induce the opponents to bid six
spades.

The slam seems impossible to
make, even if you see all four hands.

East played the queen, West’s jack
could then be’ trapped. Or if West led
the club jack instead, East’s queen
could be trapped by going up with
dummy’s ace. The same was true if
West shifted to a diamond. All roads
thus led to 12 tricks.

Observe that if Bowie had dis-
carded a club or a diamond from
dummy instead of ruffing the ace of
spades at trick three, the slam would
have failed. After being thrown on
lead with the trump, West would
have retumed whichever suit Bowie
had discarded from dummy. The set-
ting trick would then have come
from the other suit.

THE TRIBUNE

Resort PINs down
guest service





O

EMPLOYEES who have collected the most pins thus far in the PIN programme share a moment of celebration as they are recognised for the
efforts to ‘wow’ guests at Pelican Bay at Lucaya. Pictured from left are: Mrs Judy Duncombe, director human resources; Sabrina Williams, Nep-
__tune’s breakfast; Stanley Williams, bell captain, and Mrs Cindy Burrows, front desk clerk.

GRAND Bahama — Pelican
Bay at Lucaya’s staff has earned
a reputation as a leader on
Grand Bahama for providing
guest service to vacationers.

Now, the resort is changing
the way guests share their praise
of the Pelican Bayteam by
introducing the PIN pro-
gramme, which gives staff mem-
bers an opportunity to earn
bonuses.

The newly-launched PIN pro-
gramme is designed to let guests
share their compliments direct-
ly with those delivering the ser-
vice. When guests check in they
are issued . i



Guests are encouraged to give
the pin to a Pelican Bay team
member who delivers service
above and beyond expectations.
Guests can hand out as: many
pins as desired.

Team members who receive
the pins can wear them on their
uniforms to showcase their
commitment to delivering great
service. Furthermore, once a
staff member has reached a cer-

tain level of pins, they qualify

for a $100 bonus. Currently, Pel-
ican Bay’s Cindy Burrows, Sab-
rina Williams and Stanley
Williams have earned the most
pins.



“Many times our guests will
send comment cards or e-mails
after a stay to tell us about the
great service they received from
a staff member,” explains Mag-
nus Alnebeck, Pelican Bay’s
general manager.

“With the PIN programme
the guest can tell our team
members thank you right there
on the spot.”

Pelican Bay at Lucaya fea-
tures 93 one-bedroom suites
and an 89-room inn. Both the
suites and the hotel hold the
prestigious “Small Treasure”
designation awarded by The
Bahamas Ministry of Tourism.
