AS teachers in Grand
Bahama continued their sick-
out yesterday, Minister of Edu-
cation Alfred Sears said that
there isn't anything more the
ministry can do in the circum-
stances.

"I am asking all of us to tone
down the rhetoric; lets deal with
the problem. I have put forward
a plan, it has specific deadlines
by which we must perform," he
said, speaking on the talk show
Immediate Response on ZNS.

According to Mr Sears, a com-

_ mitment has been made by the

ministry to ensure that 367 teach-
ers who are in need of salary

reassessments — having been
brought in and paid at an "entry
level" — will receive the correct
salaries by the middle of march.

This also goes for any
allowances owed, a statement

-said yesterday.

In light of this, the minister
has called for "the return of all
teachers to the classrooms in
Grand Bahama."

He said the ministry has
assured that staff at the Min-
istry of Public Service have
agreed to “expedite the
process” and are working

The ministry has repeatedly
sought to associate the prob-
lems which have come to public
attention in the last week with
"strenuous efforts" to address
teacher shortages by carrying
out an “aggressive recruitment
drive".

While in the school year 2005
to 2006, 277 teachers were
employed, in the following year
407 were brought on board, a
statement from the ministry

said.

This ameliorated shortfalls in
key areas, it claimed.

However, in the process many

teachers have not received the
correct salaries — taking into
account their qualifications — or
allowances their contracts stated
they were owed.
- One of the complaints put
forward by secretary-general of
the Bahamas Union of Teachers
Belinda Wilson is that rental
allowances, which many teach-
ers posted outside of New Prov-
idence are contractually owed,
have not been paid.

This oversight means some
educators are struggling to "pay
basic bills" she said on Wednes-
day.

However, yesterday educa-
tion permanent secretary
Creswell Sturrup said that hav-
ing looked into some of the
claims of unpaid rent, the min-
istry "do not see evidence" of
allowances not being paid in
many cases.

"We have looked at our
records and we do not see evi-
dence of it."

He contended that it may be
the case that some teachers

think they are owed rent — but

in fact it was never a part of ©

their contract.

"We have asked to have a
comprehensive review for per-
sons who have not received an
allowance to assess first of all
their entitlement to the
allowance," he said.

On Wednesday, Mrs Wilson
reported to The Tribune that
teachers in Grand Bahama were
poised to take industrial action
over funds owed to them.

Since then, a number of sick-
outs and demonstrations have
been carried out.

Mrs Wilson said "government
incompetence" over a period of
years has already caused hun-
dreds of teachers to lose out on
thousands of dollars in unpaid
salaries or promised allowances,
leaving them without the means
to support themselves or their
families.

According to Mrs Wilson, the
union has had to offer loans and
donations to some teachers to
help them stay afloat, and has
pleaded with landlords not to
evict others.

She claimed that for months,
government departments
including the Ministry of Edu-
cation, the Ministry of Public
Service, and the Treasury gave
the union the "run around" with
regard to their complaints.

O ln brief

New giant

cruise ships
could come
to Bahamas

FOUR new cruise liners -
two of them 130-ton ‘super-
liners’ - could appear in
_Bahamian waters over the
next four years as Carnival
Cruise Lines expands its 21-
ship fleet.

The first, the 110-ton Car-
nival Freedom, is expected to
make its debut in Europe
next month and the second,
the 112-ton Carnival Splen-
dour, will enter service in
July next year.

The two biggest, the 130-
ton Carnival Dream and Car-
nival Magic, will join the fleet
in 2009 and 2011 respectively.

Representing a new class °:

of vessel for the line, these
3,652-passenger “fun ships”
will be the largest in the fleet
and offer a host of innova-
._ tive on-board amenities.

Carnival president Bob
Dickinson said Carnival
- Dream and Carnival Magic
will offer the widest variety
of dining and entertainment
options in the fleet.

The company’s ships oper-
ate cruises from three to 16
days in the Bahamas,
Caribbean, Mexico, Alaska,
Hawaii, Canada, Bermuda
and Europe.

All the new vessels are
being built at Italy’s Fin-
cantieri shipyard.

dy battle over Anna Nicole

baby may happen in Bahamas

@ ANNA Nicole Smith with
Dannielynn. :

m@ By BRENT DEAN

THE US embassy officially opened
and unveiled its renovated Consular Sec-
tion Waiting Room yesterday. The ren-
ovations are estimated to have cost near-

ly $600,000.

This expanded waiting area combined
with the appointment system for visa
interviews instituted last February rep-

Tribune Staff Reporter

ANY custody battle over the
baby daughter of the deceased
Anna Nicole Smith will have to
be fought out before the
Bahamian courts, US lawyers
are arguing.

According to reports, five-
month-old Dannielynn may

have left. the Bahamas, where .

she was apparently being cared
for by the family of a Cabinet
Minister Shane Gibson, and
taken back to the US.’

A Tribune source close to the
case claimed that the former
model’s partner and longtime
lawyer Howard K Stern trav-
elled back to the Bahamas yes-

resent an effort to significantly reduce

terday morning only to collect
the baby and immediately
return to the US.

The Tribune has also learned
that Ms Smith’s mother, Vergie
Arthur, travelled to the
Bahamas yesterday morning
and met with police and social
services officials in her effort to
claim the baby.

Dannielynn — who could
stand to eventually inherit hun-
dreds of millions of dollars -—
was born at Doctors Hospital
in September of last year and
currently holds dual citizenship;
both Bahamian and American.

As the questions surround-
ing the sudden death of Ms
Smith continue to be asked in
Florida, speculation regarding

the true paternity of Dan-
nielynn has become the centre
of media attention.
Both Ms Smith’s former
boyfriend, photographer Larry
Birkhead and Mr Stern are
claiming to be the baby’s father.
A Los Angeles judge, who
just last week ordered Ms Smith
to submit her baby to DNA
testing, yesterday rejected the
request by. Mr Birkhead for an
emergency extraction of DNA.
The judge also ordered that
Ms Smith’s remains be pre-
served pending a February 20
court date on the paternity bat-
tle over Dannielynn.
Ms Smith’s US lawyer Ron
Rale told MSNBC yesterday
that the judge also denied Mr

Birkhead’s emergency request
to return the baby from the
Bahamas to California.

Mr Rale said that at the Feb-
ruary 20 hearing, the court will
first have to determine it can
legally request an DNA extrac-
tion from the body of the

' deceased star.

“It is not sure if it has jurisdic-
tion at this point to even ask for
her DNA since she is no longer a
party to this case,” he said. ©

As Mr Stern is named as the
father on the birth certificate
and Mr Birkhead never applied
for the custody of the baby in
front of a court in the Bahamas,
the lawyer and partner of the
deceased will retain’ custody for
now, lawyers are arguing.

US embassy unveils new visa waiting room

ar re Consul General at the Embassy, Vir-
ginia Sher Ramadan, noted that between

the 300 io 500 people can pass through
the waiting area per day. She stated that
the doubling of the size of the area and
the incorporation of an online compo-
nent of the visa process, would allow
individuals to come into the waiting area
and be processed with increased effi-
ciency.

remarks at the opening.

She also noted that the willingness of
the US to invest and enhance its con-
sular services in the Bahamas indicates

$25 million prize to fight climate change

LONDON — British tycoon Richard
Branson dangled a $25 million prize before
the world’s top scientists, Friday seeking
to spur research into devising ways to suck
greenhouse gases out of the air.

Former Vice President Al Gore lent his
support to the challenge, which came a
week after a landmark report by the
world’s leading climate scientists and gov-
ernment officials warned that global warm-
ing will continue, creating a far different
planet in 100 years.

“Man created the problem, therefore

man should solve the problem,” Branson’

said. .

He compared the quest to a competition
launched in 1675 to devise a method of
estimating longitude accurately. It was 60
years before English clock maker John
Harrison discovered an accurate method

_ and received his prize from King George

“The Earth cannot wait 60 years. We
need everybody capable of discovering an
answer to put their minds to it today,”
Branson said. ay

Branson hopes his offer will lead to a
viable machine for vacuuming the Earth’s
atmosphere of carbon dioxide, one of the
greenhouse gases blamed for rising tem-

_ peratures.

It’s an.idea many scientists and the Inter-
governmental Panel on Climate Change
say may be possible someday.

David Keith, a University of Calgary
engineering professor who has a provi-
sional patent on carbon atmospheric cap-
ture technology, said the key is developing
a process that is cost effective.

“People have been doing it for 50 years ...
after all the plant in my office does it,” he
said.

If Branson was offering money for car-

bon-capturing regardless of price, Keith
said he could do it right now — but not
efficiently. A nf

“This is really about price,” he said, say-
ing he believed his method could capture
carbon dioxide for $300 a ton.

Scientists in Scandinavia have started to
safely divert carbon dioxide emissions

“I see no evidence that a quantifiably
acceptable solution or pathway has been
identified — period,” said Jerry Mahlman,
former head of climate modelling at the
U.S. government’s National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration.

“Everybody would love a fix but we
don’t have it. It’s quite a way off. You can’t
dream up stuff, you have to get it right,” he
said.
Gore said the planet has a “fever” and
the world has to listen to experts.

He said last week’s report by the Inter-
governmental Panel on Climate Change
offered conclusive evidence the planet is
not well. The report said average temper-
atures on Earth could increase 2 to 11.5
degrees by 2100.

“Up until now, what has not been asked
seriously on a systematic basis is: ‘Is there
some way that some of that extra carbon
dioxide may be scavenged effectively out of
the atmosphere?’ And no one knows the
answer to that,” Gore said.

the prize.

He reiterated a commitment made in
September to invest $3 billion toward fight-
ing global warming, saying he would devote
all profits from his travel companies over
the next 10 years. As part of that pledge, he
launched a new Virgin Fuels business,
which is to invest up to $400 million in
green energy projects over the next three
years.

Organizers of the “Virgin Challenge”
said the winner would receive $5 million
once judges ruled a carbon-dioxide removal
process succeeded. The rest of the money
would be paid out over a 10-year period if
the judges decided the goal of removing
significant amounts of greenhouse gases
had been met over the long term.

About time ©
to sort out
our police

EDITOR, The Tribune.

ISHALL be grateful for a lit-
tle space in your newspaper to
address an issue that I feel should
be of grave concern of all
Bahamians, but which seems to
not receiving an attention, at
least not in the public forum.

Over the past few months
there has been much talk about
the indepehdence of the judicia-
ry. However no one has sought
to comment or question the inde-
pendence of our law enforcement
agencies. I ‘particularly want to
address the independence of the
police force. ;

It appears as though the Com-
missioner of Police is no longer in
command of his force as pro-
nouncement after pronounce-
ment is being made by cabinet
ministers other than the minis-
ter of national security.

Case in point. Just a few days

ago a cabinet minister read a let- :

ter from the commissioner of
police in the House of Assem-
bly concerning an investigation
into allegations of a visa scam at
his ministry. I beg to ask to
whom was that letter addressed.
Surely I would hate to think that
the Commissioner would have
sent a letter to the Minister of a
ministry that is under investiga-
tion for alleged corrupt practices.
One would think that if such an
investigation was launched, who
would have initiated the com-
plaint, and to whom should the
results of the investigations be
communicated? One would think
that in such instances the Minis-
ter of National Security or the
Prime Minister himself should
be the persons to whom such a
response would be forwarded.
But in disbelief, the minister him-
self read the communication.

Then there are the Ministry. of
Housing allegations. Members of
the public only found out about
the investigation when the Min-
ister himself announced that
there is an investigation. What
shocked me was that it was the
minister who even announced
who would be conducting the
investigation! It was only after
he had announced the investiga-
tion and who would be conduct-
ing it that a statement came from
the police indicating that the
investigation was in fact taking
place, and confirming that this
same person would be conduct-
ing it. ‘

What I find most interesting
is that the cabinet seems to be
dictating who investigates these
matters. The officer who was
identified to investigate the mat-
ter is, I am told, not the person
who is head of the police Cor-
ruption Branch, but that he is in
charge of other areas of the
force. How is it then that he is

hand-picked by the complaining
ministers to conduct investiga-
tions? How is it that the officer
who should be responsible for
conducting such investigations is
not involved?

To make matters worse, I read
in the newspapers recently where
the minister gave an update on
the investigations. He was able
to state the exact stage of the
investigation. But nothing has
been heard from the police. Is it
proper practice for a complaining
minister to be updated on the

progress of police investigations? :

If anyone should be giving
updates on the investigation it
should be the commissioner of
police. ; ‘

To me these are blatant abus
es that clearly show that the com-
missioner is not in control of his
force and that he is being dictat-
ed to by members of parliament.

The incidents in the Pinewood
Gardens constituency last year
also smack of blatant interfer-
ence by yet another cabinet min-
ister, who also happens to be the
representative for that area.

We all can recall the unfortu-
nate incident when a young man
was allegedly shot and killed by a
police officer. Before the inves-
tigation was completed the MP
was in the area making strong
statements that she will ensure
that justice is done in this case. It
is my information that after the
police investigations were com-
pleted it was recommended that
the matter go to the Coroner’s
court to be investigated to deter-
mine if the shooting involved a
criminal act. However against the
recommendations of the police
and the normal practice, the
Attorney General recommend-
ed that the officer be charged
before the courts. So said, so
done!

Several months after that inci-
dent, the brother of the young
man killed, who is also a police
officer, was involved in an inci-
dent with his colleagues in the
parking lot of one of the stations.
The brother was reportedly beat-
en by his colleagues and received
serious injuries. Before the inves-
tigation was complete one of the
police officers involved in the
incident was charged before the
courts. This is not the normal
practice I am told as normally
officers would be dealt with
departmentally. Was any pres-
sure placed on the commissioner
to charge the officer before the
courts? Would there have been
the same outcome had it not
involved a constituent from this
particular constituency?

These incidents are highly

‘ questionable as the procedures

— so I am told — followed in
both instances, were contrary to
normal practices and procedures,
What makes it even more suspi-
cious is that the person who is
said to have directed what action
should be taken is the Member of
Parliament for the area and after
she would have made public
statements to the effect that she
will see that justice is done. If
not highly irregular there surely
is a conflict of interest in this mat-
ter and the attorney general, in
my opinion, should have excused
herself from these matters and
let someone else deal with them
as she was too emotionally
involved.

Again the question must be
asked who is running the force?
The present commissioner has
surely lost control of his organi-
sation as it seems that he is being
dictated to by cabinet ministers

other than his own minister who ;

seems to be very silent on any
matters relating to national secu-
rity.

Then there is the issue of
police promotions, My under-
standing is that the senior pro-
motions have been ready since
May last year but they have not
been released as yet. There are
sergeants I am told who have
been acting inspectors since
December 2005 and have not yet
been confirmed. I am told that
some of those persons have actu-
ally passed the retirement age
and should be put on pension as
they still hold the rank of
sergeant.

What is the delay in releasing
the promotions that have been
ready for almost a year? My
information is that the list was
considered “too FNM” and
therefore had to be reviewed to
ensure that more PLPs were

added to it. Certain key persons
who were personally promised
that they would be promoted did
not make the cut and so the pow-
ers that be could not authorise
the list to be released until cer-
tain changes were made.

But the Prime Minister was
caught in a Catch-22 situation
because he recently had made an
announcement in the House of
Assembly with words to the
effect that he never has or
intends to interfere with police
promotions. To change the list
and to add on other persons who
may be identified as PLPs would
show him not to be telling the
truth. I am told that the former
Prime Minister and leader of the
opposition may have got a copy
of the list and therefore the cur-
rent prime minister is afraid to
change it.

Information now being circu-
lated by certain “generals” in the
force is that a compromise has
been reached and that those per-
sons who were promised and
were expecting a favour will get
their promotion and that others
will be added as well so that it
does not seem as if only persons
of a certain political persuasion
were added.

There has always been political
interference or influence with
police promotions and I guess it -
will not stop. The “old” PLP did
it, the FNM did it, but this so-
called “new” PLP has taken it to
a “new” level. They have taken
full control of the process from as
far back as three years ago which
resulted in large promotions that
far exceeded the published
vacancies. In one instance the list
was ‘almost doubled as cabinet
ministers and PLP MPs tele-
phoned the commissioner with
names of officers who had to be
promoted whether they were
competent or qualified. The pub-
lished list took almost three days
to finalise as names were contin-
ually being added. Although the
first list came out on the Friday,
some names were added on the
Sunday.

I could go on and one with
examples of where the police
force is being run from some-.
where else other than police
headquarters. The commissioner
is seen as impotent by the rank
and file of the organisation and
officers will tell you that if they
want something done all they
have to do is go to a politician
and “so said, so done!” The
morale in the force is now at an
all time low as there is little or no
respect for the leaders.:

Ask the commissioner what
has happened to his succession
plan and his training plan for his
officers. I understand that early
in his administration he set out a
game plan to train his senior offi-
cers. No regard was given to their
political backgrounds or connec-
tions as the plan was developed
to make sure that when it was
time for the present command
of the force to retire there would
be a core of competent officers
ready take over. That all changed
since May 2002 because if you
look at the officers who benefit-
ed from\ training opportunities
overseas it can be clearly seen
that the persons selected were
handpicked elsewhere.

The police force is a key
organisation within our country
and it should not be used as a
tool for politicians to reward
their stalwarts and cronies, no
matter which party is in power.
Crime knows no politics. Despite
the best efforts to suppress how
serious a crime problem we have,
crime is on the increase! I'am
sure that when the criminals go
out to commit their cowardly acts
they do not plot to target PLPs or
FNMs. They target innocent peo-
ple as they do not care who their
victims are.

It is time for politicians to take
their hands out of the affairs of
the force and allow the commis-
sioner and his other commis-
sioners to run the organisation.

‘After all they are the ones with

the experience and should be left
alone to do their jobs.

I just received information that
the force is getting ready to have
another promotion exercise for
the “lower” ranks. My source
was unable to provide many
details at the time of writing this
letter, but I shall investigate and
reveal what information I know
in due course. ;

The force is in total disarray
and something must be done!

Two brothers are
arraigned over
Prosper murder

m@ BY NATARIO McKENZIE

TWO brothers’ were
arraigned in Magistrate’s Court
yesterday and charged in con-
nection with the November
2006 murder of Devron Pros-
per.

Brothers Roy Morrison, 37,
of Williams Court and Wayne
Morrison, 36, of Eastern Road
appeared before Chief Magis-
trate Roger Gomez at court
one in Bank Lane. The men
were not represented by an
attorney.

It is alleged that the two

intentionally and unlawfully
caused the death of Devron
Prosper on Thursday, Novem-
ber 23, 2006.

They were also charged with
causing harm to Dyson Sands _.
on the same day. ;

Prosper, of Redland Acres,
was 26 years old at the time of
his death. He was stabbed and
died in the hospital.

The brothers were not
required to enter pleas to the |
charges. The matters were
adjourned to February 22 and
transferred to court 10 on Nas-
sau Street.

Workers claim management of |
Baha Mar refuse to meet lawyer |

@ By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE LABOUR dispute
between Baha Mar executives
and casino workers is heating
up as hotel management
refused to negotiate with the
workers’ attorney, it has been
claimed.

The Tribune has obtained
copies of letters sent between
the two parties involved in the
dispute.

In a letter dated February 6,
Bahamas Hotel Managerial
Association President Obie Fer-

guson wrote to Mr Don Robin-.

son, chief executive officer of
Baha Mar, in his capacity as an
attorney to notify him of the
casino workers’ position.

The document says: “This let-
ter serves to formally advise you

and your colleagues that the |

workers have selected me (Obie

Ferguson and Co) to be their
spokesperson to management

on their behalf. You are there- :

fore advised to deal.with myself
as regards industrial relations
matters relating to the work-
ers.”

Ferguson’s letter states that
the casino workers have “seri-
ous concerns” that require
urgent attention, including
claims that casino staff have not
received a raise in 12 years, that
management has saturated the
casino with unnecessary staff,
croupiers have not been paid
for overtime worked, and dis-
crimination and victimisation
have occurred in the workplace.

Ferguson’s letter concludes:
“In light of tense relations being
cultivated, time is of the essence
in bringing resolutions to these
matters. I am therefore, invit-
ing an early meeting to resolve
these issues.”

In response to this letter, Mr
Robert “Sandy” Sands, senior
vice president for govern-
ment/external affairs of Baha
Mar, wrote to Mr Ferguson on
February 7.

Policy

Mr Sands’ letter reads: “It is
not the policy of this company
to discuss matters relating to its
employees with persons other
than the employee or a duly
recognised bargaining agent.”

This past Super Bowl Sun-
day, Crystal Palace casino work-
ers carried out a mass sick-out
that involved more than 20 per-
sons, despite repeated warnings
from management that such a
strike would be illegal, because
the casino workers are not
unionised.

Mr Sands said that industrial

ACP Greenslade, who is

his transfer from the northern

specifics about his new appoint-

claimed was mandatory, but
Baha Mar executive Robert
Sands said the existing indus-

Mr Sands also said that Mr
Ferguson only represents a bar-'

It has also been suggested by
labour director Harcourt Brown
that the BHMA strike vote may
not have been legal, because a
department of labour official was
not present to supervise the voting.

Mr Sands’ February 7 letter
was, faxed to Labour Director

ister Shane Gibson, and Prime
Minister Perry Christie.

Ava Miller

Age 30+

Field: Financial
Services Sector |
College educated -
Bachelor’s degree
Single mother

A lady of high stan-
dards and expectations,
Ava describes herself as
a natural-born Capri-
corn, -independent,
fiercely loyal, loving and
very romantic.

“T do not look at what
an individual is on the
outside, but rather what
they have to offer on the
inside - because that is

maybe a little prickly -
according to what the
situation calls for.

A romantic at heart,
Ava also has an adven-
turous side — anyone up
for hang gliding?

So what type of man
is Ava looking for?

Preference No 1:
Dark chocolates

Preference No 2:
Creamy caramels

Looking at the big
picture however, Ava
recognises that her pref-
erences are insignificant
when compared with
what can be gained by
allowing the true char-
acter of a man to shine





where the personality
proceeds from. I must
mention also that
throughout my life God
has been there for me
and I have a deep rever-
ence for the things of
God, but do not boast of
being perfect.”

A natural sweetheart is how
Ava describes herself, but there
is a proviso — don’t get on the
wrong side of this woman. A
woman of principles, Ava places
a premium on honesty, within
herself and others. In fact, she
prefers people to be upfront
with her.

“IT am upfront with people. |
don’t hold things in. I might
hold something in for a little
while, but I always tell you
what’s on my mind...nicely or

through.

Ava is looking for a
guy who is sensitive in
every sense of the word,
a man who respects
himself and others

lives his life based on a
strong moral code and
godly principles.

Ava wants a man who knows
the value of compromise, but
who is also able to stand firm
when his core beliefs are being
called into question. She wants
someone who is capable of giv-
ing and receiving love and
someone who does things “just
because”. Also important to
Ava is finding a man who is
independent, and who meets
with success as he strives toward
his goals and aspirations.

Cacique make fun
for Exuma children

CACIQUE International
prides itself on its ability to help
its corporate and international
clients create the ultimate expe-
rience when in the Bahamas —
whether it means designing a
one-of-a-kind awards banquet,
organising outrageous and orig-
inal team-building activities,
preparing a sumptuous meal or
helping them give back to the
Bahamian community.

When 20 of Canada-based
Playground Real Estate’s top
performers went to the Four
Seasons Exuma on an incentive
programme, they hired the Des-
tination Management Company
at Cacique to co-ordinate their
visit.

“The company’s event plan-
ner asked for Cacique Interna-
tional’s help in doing something
special for some of the island’s
children and team Cacique
jumped at the opportunity to
be involved in the charitable
project,” explained the compa-
ny in a statement. “They pro-
duced a spectacular fun day for
their clients and the students at
Exuma’s Roker’s Point All Age |
School.”

The children and the visitors °
enjoyed lunch specially pre-
pared by the Four Seasons Exu-
ma, and the Roker’s Point Pri-
mary School choir provided the
entertainment.

“Following that it was time
for the real fun to begin.
Cacique organised fun games
that allowed for playful inter-
action between the Playground
Real Estate’s team and the chil-
dren,” it said.

Playground Real Estate then
presented the school with text
books for the library, much
needed sporting equipment and
even toys for all of the school’s
106 students.

‘help like this’” said Mr Bostick.

«Was raised in foster homes

Associated Grocers is one of
Grand Bahama’s newest cor-

major international entity to
begin constructing a facility at
the Grand Bahama Sea/Air

Rutherford. “This donation
should help us tremendously
with our home costs and will
save us thousands.

“We actually cannot take on
all that we have been given and
the perishable foods will be

Captain Mathias of the Sal-

was very timely and would assist
them with their food distribu-

“This donation came in the
nick of time as the beginning of
the year is pretty slow for dona-

donation could not have come
at a better time for us,” he said.

_ Emergency measures at Fox H
after officers take industrial action |

FROM page one

NEITHER Mrs Pratt nor Lt
Commander Rolle at the
Defence Force base could con-
firm exactly how many Defence
Force officers had to be brought
in to secure the prison.

Mrs Pratt said she was "sur-
prised" that the action had tak-
en place as she felt the govern-
ment had "certainly addressed
most of (the officers) concerns."

The officers, however, in a
statement issued on Thursday
night, disagreed with the asser-
tion that their grievances had
been addressed.

_. Both Mrs Pratt and Dr Rah-
ming have sought to play down
the officers’ complaints of a lack

of protective gear.

She suggested that govern-

ment had attempted to ensure
that an adequate number of
vests - at a cost of $600 each -
had been provided.

"The Prison Staff Associa-
tion themselves selected these
vests and then found out that
they were not the type of vests
that they wanted - we tried to
do everything they have asked
us to do," she said.

On Wednesday, disgruntled
officers pointed to a new
awning over a car park at the
prison as evidence of mis-
spending of government funds
at the prison.

Mrs Pratt reasserted. state-
ments that "questions of parity"

between the disciplinary forces
will not be addressed until the
completion of a compensation
study in March.

"I also informed prison offi-
cers that all outstanding mat-
ters with regard to terms and
conditions at the prison will
continue to be resolved in
accordance with an under-
standing between the executive
of the association and the gov-
ernment arrived at on Decem-
ber 14," she said.

This agreement outlined
deadlines in early 2007 for,
among other things, the delivery
of promotions owed for years.
Some officers have been paid
"recruit" level salaries since
2005, the association claim.

Also in the agreement were
improvements to be made to
living quarters, although no
time frame was given for these.

Agreement

Mrs Pratt said only that it had
been "agreed that it has to be
done" and currently the min-
istry is looking into re-housing
officers.

This has to be taken care of
before any work can be done,
she said, as the quarters needed
to be totally "torn down" rather
than renovated.

In Thursday night's state-
ment from the officers, com-
plaints were made that govern-

ment promises to improve living
quarters had gone unfulfilled
several times before.

"Some three years ago, we
submitted a proposal...outlin-
ing the conditions and offered
ourselves to provide labour and
the government to provide
materials, they agreed, but
eventually we were ignored,"
said the statement.

More promises of improve-

ments to the quarters were

made by Prime Minister Perry
Christie and then Minister of
Housing Shane Gibson last
August, they said.

"They said 'so said, so done',
we are saying ‘so said, nothing
done'," ran the statement.

Mrs Pratt said that she had

reminded officers that morning
of "infrastructural work that has
been completed since 2002."

She said it needed to be
made known that significant
improvements had been made
at the prison since the current
administration came to power.

"People don't know what to
believe. Staff association says
nothing has been done, super-
intendent is saying a lot has
been done, I am saying a lot has
been done - I know how much
the government has spent," she
said.

To this end the DPM has
called upon an "impartial civil-
ian committee" to assess the
prison on Monday, and report
back to the public, she said.





Ownership of Anna Nicole Smith
home still subject of legal battle

‘FROM page one

However, Cedric Parker and
Co, the law firm representing
Ms Smith in this matter at the
time of her death, said that Mr
Pinder’s information was com-
pletely wrong.

“Once again you have fed the
press totally inaccurate infor-
mation regarding this matter,”
Mr Parker wrote in a letter to
Mr Pinder yesterday.

The law firm suggested that
Mr Pinder read the Survival of
Action Act 1992. :

The Act states that “subject
to the provisions of this sec-
tion, on the death of any per-
son after the commencement
of this Act all causes of action
subsisting against or vested in
that person shall survive
against, or, as the case may be,
forthe benefit of, that person-
“sestate.”

This would mean that any
representative of Ms Smith’s

estate would still have to face
the legal wrangling over the

Stubbs was also charged with
the January 26 murder of Emi-
co Russell. Russell was shot in
the chest at the Fantasy Night-
club on Madeira Street when
two gunmen entered the club
around lam. He was taken to

time later.

Stubbs was not required to
plead to the charges and was

Prison.

ownership of ‘Horizons.’

‘Mr Pinder on Thursday night
also told The Tribune that he

ern Road home ‘Horizons’) to

Death of model makes
planned Daniel Smith
inquest ‘more urgent’

FROM page one

“The fact that both of them.

have died under sudden death
circumstances makes this
inquest that much more inter-
esting,” he said.

He added that, if it becomes
necessary, Bahamian authori-
ties will attempt to compel Ms
Smith’s partner and long-time
lawyer Howard K Stern to
return to the country and testi-
fy as witness in front of the
Coroner’s Court on March 27.

At a press conference held
yesterday in Hollywood, Flori-
da, Broward County’s chief
medical examiner Dr Joshua
Perper, who performed the
autopsy on the body of the
celebrity, told the media he was
ruling out foul play in the death
of Ms Smith.

Dr Perper said that more

tests will be needed to deter-
mine the exact cause of death,
explaining that the former Play-
boy: playmate: could have died
of natural causes, due to some
medication, or from a combi-
nation of reasons.

Seminole Police Chief Char-
lie Tiger said that no illegal
drugs were found in the hotel
room of the Seminole Hard
Rock Hotel and Casino in Hol-
lywood, where Ms Smith died
on Thursday afternoon.

“We found no illegal drugs,
only prescription medicines,”
he said.

Dr Perper said that he was
able to exclude any sort of phys-
ical injury as the cause of death,
such as a “gunshot wound,
asphyxiation or blunt trauma.”

He only revealed that he
found “subtle findings” in the
heart and gastrointestinal tract,

and blood in her stomach from
being in shock before she died.

Dr Perper added that he also
found minor bruises on her
back which she had reportedly
sustained in a previous fall in
the bathroom.

He said that Ms Smith appar-
ently had ‘been sick for several
days with some kind of stom-
ach flu.

The former reality star’s
mother Virgie Arthur told
ABC’s “Good Morning Amer-
ica” yesterday that she blamed
drugs for her daughter’s death.

“I think she had too many
drugs, just like Danny (Daniel
Smith). I tried to warn her

‘about drugs and the people that
she hung around with. She did-
n’t listen. ~

“She was too drugged up. By
the last interview I saw of her,
she‘was so wasted,” she said.

MATTHEW Hayden made
82 and Ricky Ponting fired a
run a ball 75 to lead Australia to
a respectable total of 252 Fri-
day in the first tri-series limited-
overs cricket final against Eng-
land.

After Adam Gilchrist was
dismissed for five to leave Aus-
tralia at 32-1, Hayden and
Ponting laid the foundation for
a substantial total when they
combined for 138 runs from 148
balls at the Melbourne Cricket
Ground.

‘Ponting was out when. the
total was 170 after taking an

seven boundaries. Hayden fol- .

lowed 10 runs later, scoring his
82 from 102 deliveries, also with
seven fours.

Monty Panesar removed
Ponting, caught by Colling-
wood, and fellow spinner Jamie
Dalrymple accounted for Hay-
den.

Australia seemed set to capi-
talize on the Ponting-Hayden
stand but steadily crumbled, los-
ing its last eight wickets for 72
runs in 25 overs to be all out in
the 49th over.

After the second-wicket pair,
Michael Clarke’s 33, Michael
Hussey’s 17 and Brad Hogg’s
10 were the only innings of sub-
stance.

Australia was set to launch
an assault on the England
bowlers inside the last 10 overs
but, instead, lost wickets steadi-
ly and failed to set a fully com-
petitive total in what appeared
to be outstanding batting con-
ditions.

Slow to medium pacer Paul
Collingwood kept up the mid-
innings pressure and sharp Eng-
land fielding, which led to two
run outs, contributed to Aus-
tralia’s decline.

When Panesar trapped Brad
Hodge Ibw for five in the 37th
over, at 196 for four, the course
of the match was slowly turn-
ing. Pee kana ae
England struck two key blows
when it removed Clarke and



he first final of

Hussey with successive balls in
the 43rd over, and with the
score at 229. Clarke was run out
by a brilliant throw from
Collingwood to the non-strik-
er’s end and Hussey tickled a
simple catch to wicketkeeper
Paul Nixon off Andy Flintoff.

Including Hussey and Clarke,
Australia’s last six wickets fell
for 23 runs and England ended
the first innings of the match at
least with parity with its favored
opponent.

Flintoff took three for 41 —
the wickets of Hussey, Hogg
and Glenn McGrath who was
bowled for a duck on his 37th
birthday. Panesar took two for
44 and Sajid Mahmood two for
45.

Afridi is charged with bringing game
~ into disrepute by ICC chief executive

@ CRICKET
DUBAI,
United Arab Emirates
Associated Press

PAKISTAN bowler Shahid
Afridi was charged Thursday
with bringing the game into dis-
repute Uivough an alleged

aggressive altercation with a
spectator.

The charge was related to an
incident after Afridi was dis-
missed in the one-day interna-
tional against South Africa at
Centurion on Sunday.

“As the player walked up a
set of stairs towards the dress-

ing room, a spectator apparent-
ly said something to him and
Afridi reacted by appearing to
push his bat at the person in an
aggressive manner, causing the
spectator to take evasive action,”
the ICC said in a statement.
Afridi is free to play for Pak-
istan until a hearing, which has

yet to be determined, takes
place. If found guilty, he faces a
ban of between two and four test
matches or between four and
eight one-day internationals.
Afridi scored 17 runs for
Pakistan in the match, which
was the first of five one-day-
ers. South Africa won the

match by 164 runs.

International Cricket Council
chief executive Malcolm Speed
charged Afridi after studying
video footage of the incident
while in the Caribbean, where
he is attending a series of meet-
ings ahead of next month’s
World Cup.

Under ICC rules, Speed is
allowed up to five days to
charge someone. The match
umpires, either side’s team
manager and either side’s chief
executives also have the author-
ity to charge someone, but must
do so within 18 hours if the inci-
dent.

Shane Gibson’s
future in doubt
after Anna N icole
Smith furore

m@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

TOP PLP financiers are push-
ing to block the nominations of
Sidney Stubbs, Keod Smith,
Kenyatta Gibson, and Shane
Gibson from running onthe:
party’s ticket in the next gen-
eral election, The Tribune has
learned.

According to well-placed
sources, the quartet have all
proved to be too much of a lia-
bility for the party’s hierarchy,
who are seeking to extricate the
PLP as far as possible from any
form of controversy or scandal.

Of top priority, it was report-
ed, was the immediate “black-
balling” of Shane Gibson, the
Minister of Immigration and
Labour, after the abrupt death
of Anna Nicole Smith.

Yesterday international
reports stated that Anna
Nicole’s newborn baby Dan-
nielynn was being cared for by
the family of Minster Gibson -
namely his mother.

The controversy surrounding
Anna Nicole, and ultimately
what will follow in the paterni-
ty battle for her young daugh-
ter, is a dilemma that the party
would prefer to distance itself

from - especially with an elec- °

tion only months away.
Minister Gibson has consid-

erable support in the Golden

Gates constituency, and accord-

Emergency measures at

ing to reports would have little

_ difficulty in retaining his seat.

Despite this, however, the
possible fallout over the Anna
Nicole affair may hurt other
PLP candidates on a national
level who have only marginal

~teads-ever- their FNM. counter-

parts.

Sidney Stubbs, it was report-
ed, has struggled in the Holy
Cross constituency and, coupled
with the BAIC controversy and
Korean Boat scandal, may be
more of a liability than an asset.

Keod Smith and Kenyatta
Gibson, it was reported, both
shattered each other’s hopes of
re-election with the very pub-
lic and poorly handled brawl at
the Cabinet Office on Bay
Street.

Last night numerous allega-
tions emerged regarding sever-
al malicious scandals that could
erupt if the various men were
not nominated.

Sources allege that Prime
Minister Perry Christie may be
hard-pressed to assure that
these and other “secrets” were
kept from the public.

However, it is understood
that there will be considerable
pressure placed on the nomina-
tions committee to ensure that
the men named will not be gain-
ing re-election under a PLP
banner - despite attempts by
Prime Minister Christie to the
contrary.

Fox Hill after officers
take industrial action

i By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

EMERGENCY measures

had to;be taken to secure Fox

Hill prison yesterday after 75
per cent of prison officers took
"illegal" industrial action.

Minister for National Secu-
rity, Mrs Cynthia "Mother"
Pratt, directed staff - who are
on what she termed a "wildcat"
sick-out - to immediately return
towork.

A platoon of Defence Force
officers were drafted in to cov-
er for the missing officers in the
early hours of the morning
when senior officials realised
the action was underway, Lieu-
tenant Commander Eddison
Rolle confirmed.

Yesterday was the third - and
most disruptive - day of industri-
al action by the officers, who are
demanding back pay, promotions
they claim are owed, improve-
ments to their living quarters and

more protective gear.

They claim they are not
being treated with parity in rela-
tion to other disciplinary forces.

Responding to the action,
Deputy Prime Minister and
Minister for National Security
Mrs Pratt chaired a morning
meeting between government
ministers and prison staff,
including Superintendent of
Prisons Dr Elliston Rahming.

"I reminded the prison staff
association that they were
involved in an unlawful action
in violation of their contract of
employment as part of a disci-
plined force, and I directed their
immediate return to work," said
Mrs Pratt.

She said she wished to reas-
sure the public that "the prison
service continues, that inmates
are safe and secure and that the
national security of the country
is not compromised."

Ownership of Anna

subject of legal battle

_ THE legal battle over the
rightful ownership of the East-
ern Road home ‘Horizons’ will
continue despite the sudden
death of US celebrity and
Bahamian permanent resident
Anna Nicole Smith, lawyers
said yesterday.

Godfrey “Pro” Pinder, rep-
resenting Ms Smith’s former
boyfriend G Ben Thompson —

who is claiming that he owns

the home - on Thursday -

claimed that-the “matter has
died with (Ms Smith).”

Mr Pinder said Ms Smith had
been the one to apply for own-
ership of the luxury home and
that with her death this appli-
cation had also died.

Third man is charged in
connection with double
murder last month



@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

FRANKLYN Stubbs, 24, of
Moncur Alley, was arraigned
before Chief Magistrate Roger
Gomez yesterday in connection
with a double murder which
took place last month.

chargedin connection with the

Nottage Estates, were arraigned

on the same charges. They were
remanded to prison.

Court dockets stated that
Stubbs, being concerned with
others, intentionally and unlaw-
fully caused the death of
Shervin Miller Jr on Thursday,
January 25.

Stubbs was also charged with
armed robbery. The charge stat-
ed that on Thursday, January
25, 2007, Stubbs, being con-
cerned with others, robbed
Shervin Miller Jr of a 1999 Ford
Explorer valued at $5,000.

Minister to ask again about exclusion —
of youngster from GSSSA games

@ By KELSIE JOHNSON
Sports Reporter

THE Minister of Education,
Science and Technology, Alfred
Sears was called upon once
again to intervene in an ongoing
battle between the Government
Secondary School Sporting

Association (GSSSA) and

young Cedricka Sweeting.

Sweeting, an eighth grader at
HO Nash (Lions) Junior
School, was denied clearance
and eligibility by the GSSSA
after transferring from the DW
Davis Junior School last year.

The refusal by the GSSSA
bars Sweeting from any after-
school sporting activities being
held under the association's
umbrella. And if not reinstated
by the GSSSA by the next
game, she will be forced to sit
out the rest of the season.

The letter states: "It is the
decision of the Eligibility Com-
mittee, that Ms Cedricka Sweet-
ing has been ineligible for the
2006-2007 school year.

"Should you require any fur-

ther clarification please feel free ©

to contact the Association."

This letter was signed by
GSSSA president Edna Forbes
and the GSSSA secretary,
Katrinka Marshall.

Copies of the letter, dated
October 20, 2006, was sent to
Lions' principal Franklyn Light-
bourne and head coach Patri-
cia Johnson.

The Tribune contacted
Forbes, who claims she was
unaware of the letters concern-
ing Sweeting's case, but did not
deny signing the letter. She
referred all comments to. the
association's constitution.

Forbes said: "You are show-
ing me something that you said
I have signed, and J am saying
to you that there is a draft con-
stitution that we offered to
every parent. And we welcome
any parent to come and get.a
copy of it so they can know

exactly what is happening in our ~

association.

ineligible. Like I said before we

Discussions

When asked if any of the
drafts had been approved by
the Ministry of Education,
Forbes revealed that they (Min-
istry of Education) had various
discussions on the drafts, adding
that the GSSSA is governed by
school principals.

However, the letters received
by the Tribune did show that
Mr Sears and his board of direc-

tors had already intervened, but
Forbes and the GSSSA still
refused to reinstate Sweeting.

@ CEDRICKA Sweeting

istry of Education has conclud-
‘ed that Cedricka Sweeting is eli-
gible to,participate in all sport-
ing activities sponsored by the
Government School Secondary
Council (GSSSA), 2006-2007."

Sweeting, who recently cele-
brated her 14th birthday, was
scheduled to play on Thursday
according the instructions sent
in by Mr Sears. But Thursday's
game was cancelled and Sweet-
ing said she was still not allowed
to play.

A day after learning that
Sweeting was not reinstated into
the GSSSA, Mr Sears was con-
tacted and he said: "My posi-
tion on this matter is that Ms
Sweeting should be allowed to
play. The Director of Educa-
tion sent a letter to the relevant
authorities indicating the posi-
tion of the Ministry.

"Under the Education Act,
we have an obligation to ensure
that all of our students are treat-
ed fairly and whenever any mat-
ter comes to our attention,







@ Comedian George Lopez watches his tee shot on the first tee during the first round of Pebble

which raises a concern of unfair
treatment or exclusion, then we
have a duty to ensure that there
is a quality of treatment by our
students and that includes their
rights to participate in any of
the athletic and academic pro-
grammes offered in our facilities
and our staff.

"Yes I must declare that the
director and other ministry
officials met with the execu-
tives of the association. The
matter came to my attention
and I asked the director of

‘education to review the mat-

ter..We met with Ms. Forbes
and thé executives and out of
those meetings we issued the
position of the ministry, which
is, Ms Sweeting should be
allowed to play. °

"Anybody can draft a new
constitution, but the question is
it legal? Associations can only
have one constitution at a time,
a draft is only a draft until it is
duly and properly adopted by
the body."



Mr Sears said he will demand
another review of the case and
see what further actions the
ministry should take on the cir-
cumstances. ;

The refusal by Forbes has Ms
Lowe-Wright, Sweeting's legal
guardian, claiming the reason-
ing for her granddaughter’s inel-
igibility, was based on
“favouritism and vicitimisa-
tion”. .

Ms Lowe-Wright revealed
that Sweeting's transfer was to
bring her closer to her Flamingo

‘Gardens home and not to harm

any school's sporting pro-
grammes.

She also stated that her
granddaughter is losing faith in
the system on a daily basis.

When the Tribune spoke with
Sweeting, she said: "All I want
to do is play."

A meeting is scheduled to
take place on Monday with Mr
Sears, the director of education,
Forbes and executive members
and Sweeting’s legal guardian.

Davis Cup: Vliegen beats Hewitt to_
give Belgium 1-0 lead over Australia

@ TENNIS
LIEGE, Belgium
Associated Press

KRISTOF Vliegen twice
came back from behind to beat
former top-ranked Lleyton
Hewitt 4-6, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 and
give Belgium a 1-0 lead over
Australia in-their first round
Davis Cup tie.

Vliegen, ranked a modest
41st in the world, won the



match in 4 hours, 20 minutes
for World Group newcomer
Belgium, which is back in the

. top tier of men's tennis after a
three-year absence.

Hewitt started well, going up
2-0 in the first set when-Vliegen
sent a dropshot into the net on

whis serve, but the Belgian
rebroke immediately, putting
Hewitt on the defensive with
his heavily chopped shots from
the baseline.

Hewitt then denied Vliegen
another break in the fifth game
after a 10-minute tug-of-war
before surging ahead 5-3, only
to waste five set points and
allow Vliegen to narrow the gap
to 5-4.

But the Australian, who led
his team to a Davis Cup title in
2003, regained his composure,
losing only one point on
Vliegen's next serve and claim-
ing the first set 6-4.

The second set went with the
serve until the ninth game,
when Vliegen converted his first
break point to go up 5-4 then
swept the next game, sending
the Country Hall du Sart-
Tilman into a frenzy.

Long rallies and heavily
chopped shots again prevailed
in the third set on the slow clay
court, with Hewitt managing a
crucial break and holding on to
win 6-3.

But Vliegen, excelling with
a wide variety of shots, put
up a fight in the fourth set,
racing to a 4-0 lead and win-
ning the last game to claim
the set 6-3. Hewitt made sev-
en double faults and convert-
ed only 32 percent of his first
serve.

Vliegen broke Hewitt again
in the first game of the last set
and held on for a 5-4 lead,
before facing three break



points by the resurgent Aus-
tralian. Vliegen saved all three
— one with an ace — then con-
verted his third match point for
one of the biggest wins of his
career.

ond most successful Davis

WNBA star's

light up Israel

m@ BASKETBALL
RAMLE, Israel
Associated Press

PLENETTE Pierson of the
WNBA champion Detroit
Shock is used to playing in front
of thousands of fans back home
in the United States. This winter,
the forward is showing off her
skills in front of nearly empty
stands in small-town Israel — and
loving it.

Pierson is among the growing
number of WNBA stars who
moonlight overseas during the
offseason. Buoyed by a small but
rabid fan base, Israel has become
a top destination.

"I think the Holy Land has
been the land of basketball, I
think the WNBA players just
now found out about it," said
Pierson, who has become so
popular she can barely walk
through the streets of this back-
water town without being
swarmed by fans.

According to the WNBA,
Pierson is one of 17 players in
Israel. Nearly 130 play world-
wide, in countries including Rus-
sia, South Korea and Australia.

Pierson, along with teammates
LaToya Thomas of the San
Antonio Silver Stars and
Monique Currie of the Chicago
Sky, have turned their Elitzur
Ramle club into a juggernaut.
The team is 15-2 and has
clinched a first-place finish and
playoff berth, just a year after
temporarily shutting down
because of debt.

"The league is just as compet-
itive and tough as the WNBA,"

said Pierson, who's averaging.

18.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per
game.

Thanks to a basketball-crazed
mayor and funds from several
corporate sponsors, Ramle has
become the top draw for
WNBA players in Israel. The
team says it pays each of its
American players about
US$80,000 a season, tax-free,
throwing in a car and apartment,
too.

The 10-year-old WNBA has
lasted longer and been more suc-
cessful than any previous U.S.
women's pro league. But salaries
range from about US$31,000 to
US$90,000, with the bulk falling
somewhere in the middle, and
the regular season is just three
months long.

So even top players — such as
Lisa Leslie, Sheryl Swoopes, Sue
Bird and Diana Taurasi — travel
the world each winter in search
of extra cash. European leagues
also allow the women to stay in
shape and arrive for the WNBA
summer league in top form.

"If we were making money
like the men, we wouldn't have
to go overseas," Thomas said.
"Playing basketball is a job. It's
not a fairy tale, we just go out
and play."

‘Currie, who's working toward
a master's degree at Duke Uni-
versity, said she welcomed the
opportunity to travel the world
and see new things while better-
ing herself as a player.

"Of course we would like to
be back in the States, like the
men, and not have to play the
entire year, but at the same time
we enjoy what we are doing, we
are still playing basketball, still
having fun," said Currie, who

‘leads Ramle with 21.9 points per

game.

In many ways, the Israeli
women's league is far more
exciting than that of the men.
The competition is wide open,
while the men's league has been
dominated for years by peren-
nial European powerhouse Mac-
cabi Tel Aviv.

And while the men's league
typically attracts foreign players
either at the beginning or the
end of their career, the women's
league is filled with players in
their prime. Recent Israeli pros
include WNBA standouts Dean-
na Nolan, Vickie Johnson, Mwa-
di Mabika and Cheryl Ford. |

Nowhere is the play more
appreciated than Ramle in cen-

tral Israel, where the team has

become the pride and joy of a
city normally associated with
crime and poverty.

To counter Ramle's tradition-
ally negative image, Mayor Yoel
Lavie decided in the mid-1990s
to turn his run-down city of
70,000 into a center of women's
hoops. He enlisted a host of local
sponsors and also poured large
sums of municipal funds into the
team.

Elitzur had won five of the
previous 10 championships,
overcoming teams from the larg-
er cities of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv
and Haifa, before tax debts
forced it to shut down for the
season last year. Under new
management, and thanks to this
year's crop of American imports,
the team has reinvigorated the
city again.

DUBLIN, Ireland

IRELAND'S struggle to
beat San Marino will make
Steve Staunton's struggle to
keep his.job even tougher.

Staunton, who took over
as coach one year ago, was
mercilessly pilloried in the
media Thursday, hours after
his team needed an injury-
time goal to win 2-1 at San
Marino in a European
Championship qualifying
match.

"Minnows 1, Muppets 2,"
the front page of the Irish
Sun declared.

"Staunton finds new level
of ineptitude," the Irish
Times wrote.

Irate fans flooded the air-
waves to demand that
Staunton, nicknamed Stan,
be fired after nearly allowing
San Marino - losers of all 38
of its European matches
since 1990 — to record its first
qualifying point.

"Stan-dalous" and "Stan
Down!" the Irish Daily Star
headlined.

"It was very nearly the
biggest embarrassment in
Irish soccer history," said
Liam Brady, a former Ire-
land and Arsenal player.

Staunton holds the record
for most appearances for Ire-
land's national team, but he

_ took over from Brian Kerr

with little coaching experi-
ence.

"The incompetence was
staggering," said Eamon
Dunphy, a sports commen-
tator and former Ireland
defender. Staunton "has no
capacity to manage, no
understanding of the game."

Bobby Robson, who
serves as Staunton's part-
time consultant, spent 75
minutes Thursday fielding

calls from angry fans on Ire-.

land's national radio station,
RTE. The former England
coach defended Staunton's
tactics and direction. ‘

"Nine (San Marino) guys
stood in front of the goal-
keeper and they kept one up
front. It's not easy to work
through nine people," said
Robson. "Everybody thinks
we should've won 10-1, but it
isn't easy."

Later the chief executive
of the Football Association

Ireland in uproar over the

basketball league

struggle to beat San Marino

of Ireland, John Delaney,
rejected calls for Staunton
to be fired. "Steve and the

. Management team have a

job to do," he said.

Delaney, who also reject-
ed calls for himself to resign,
conceded Staunton had lit-
tle coaching experience.
"That's why we brought
Bobby Robson in — to be his
mentor." -

Ireland reached the quar-
terfinals at the 1990 World
Cup under Jack Charlton,
then made the second round
four years later. The Irish
again reached the second
round in 2002 with Mick
McCarthy as coach.

It's been all downhill
since.

Kerr took over when
McCarthy failed to qualify
for the 2004 European
Championship. Kerr was
fired when he missed out on ~
the 2006 World Cup.

In Euro 2008 qualifying,
Ireland has only two wins
and a draw from five games
in Group D — both wins over
San Marino. Germany and
the Czech Republic lead the
group with 10 points from
only four games. The Irish
face Wales and Slovakia at
home next month.

Ireland took the lead
Wednesday when Kevin Kil-
bane scored with a header
in the 49th minute. Manuel
Marani then equalized in the
86th — for San Marino's first
competitive goal since 1998. —
Stephen Ireland scored the
winner in the fourth minute
of injury time, eight seconds
before the final whistle.

Irish Times sports colum-
nist Tom Humphries said
Ireland was humiliated by °
conceding a goal to San
Marino, whose members
"play like men who expect
to encounter visa problems if
they approach the halfway
line." 4

Tony O'Donoghue, the
RTE sports editor, said he
thought Ireland's players
had lost confidence in
Staunton.

"It was as though the team
had never played together
before," O'Donoghue said.
"The play from set pieces
was-absolutely awful. It's
unthinkable to think an Ire-
land team could play so bad-
ly in this day and age."

QUEENS Park Rangers will hold an
internal inquiry into a wild brawl during
a friendly with China's under-23
Olympic soccer team, a fight that left
one Chinese player unconscious and
caused the game to be abandoned with
15 minutes to play.

"We are looking into what hap-
pened," Rangers chairman Gianni Pal-
adini told the BBC on Thursday. "If
any of our players are guilty of any
wrongdoing then they will be dealt with
accordingly."

The match was played Wednesday
night at Queens Park Rangers’ training
facility. QPR was leading 2-1 when the
match was halted.

"QOPR can confirm that an incident
occurred at our Harlington training
ground yesterday, during the game
against China's under-23 squad," the
club said in a statement. "The club
abhor violence of any sort and do not
condone the actions taken by anyone
involved."

The statement said no further com-
ment would be made until an internal
investigation was conducted.

Calls to QPR by The Associated Press
on Thursday were not immediately
returned.

The Chinese Olympic team was invit-
ed to train in London by Premier
League club Chelsea, which is trying to
make inroads into China's lucrative

sports market. Chelsea launched a new
Chinese-language Web site last month in
Beijing, and announced new sponsor-
ship deals in China.

The Chinese team, as part of its stay in
England, also scheduled several friend-
ly matches, including Wednesday's
game.

Referee Dermot Gallagher stopped
the game after the brawl and police were
called. Zheng Tao was then taken to
Hillingdon Hospital with a suspected
broken jaw.

Gallagher is expected to file a report
with England's Football Association.

"If this incident is reported by Mr.
Gallagher then, of course, we will be
investigating it fully," the FA said.

Footage of the fight aired Thursday in
China, showing China striker Gao Lin
throwing punches after being picked up
by a Rangers player. Both players fell to
the ground, then others joined the fight.

"That's the style of English soccer,"
China's Olympic coach Ratomir
Dujkovic told the Beijing sports daily
Titan. "But no matter what they do, it
shouldn't be a reason for fighting. | am
really disappointed. It is not acceptable."

Gao is being sent back to China, Titan
said.

"I failed to control myself," Gao was
quoted as saying in the London Evening
Standard. "When facing the provoca-
tion I failed to obey the three rules of
submitting to the referee, respecting
opponents and not striking back, which
caused the incident. I sincerely apologize
to the fans."

*\ THE St John’s Giants and
the Jordan Prince William Fal-
cons’s girls teams hooked up in
a real shoot-out in the second
half. It ended up with the
Giants nipping the Falcons 46-
45 yesterday at the Kendal

The victory gave St John’s .

a 1-0 lead in the Bahamas
Association of Independent

girls best-of-three champi-

ue on Monday with game
two. i
“Excellent. Excellent,” said
Jordan Prince William’s coach
Horatio ‘Yellow’ Poitier. “Two
good teams and two upcoming
coaches. \
* “Our girls’ executed, almost
to perfection. I’m proud of my
girls. I’m even proud of St

John’s girls. They did an excel- ,

lent job. They came out with a
game plan and they executed
to the tee. I must congratulate
coach Brown. They played like
real giants.”
—One of those players that
really stood tall was Gabrielle
Nixon, the track and field sen-
sation.

She was left open numerous
times and worked hard on the
boards for offensive. rebounds

THE pennant winning Jor- |

out-ran the St John’s Giants to
take a 1-0 lead in the Bahamas
Association of Independent

In a rematch of their show-
down in the regular season for
the pennant when they went in
undefeated, the Falcons pulled
away from a 51-51 tie to soar
to a 59-55 victory yesterday at

came from a 30-30 tie at the end

Nixon ended up with 13,
while Caryn Moss, Oresha
Rolle and Vashti Hinds all con-
tributed 10.

For Jordan Prince William,
who trailed 14-8 after the first
quarter and 21-16 at the half,
Shantara Brown scored a game
high 24 and Onicea Light-
bourne chipped in with 15.

Giants’ coach Herbie Brown
said his team just. wanted the
game more than the Falcons.

“It was a close, tight game,
but we preserved, thank God,”
Brown said. “I told coach Poiti-
er that the best team will come
out on top and I think we

_proved that the Giants are num-

ber one.”

As for game two, Brown said
as long as they play with the
same kind of intensity, they
should be able to “pull it off” on
Menday. ay :

Poitier said as long as they
play better defence, they can
come back and even win the
series.

“We'need less fouls and play
more defence,” he said. “We
had this game, but some times
the cookie crumbles. We just
played an awesome game. We
hope to play better than that
on Monday.”

“To have two games like that
back-to-back, we had to go with
our defence because we knew
that St John’s would come out a
little more organised,” said Jor-
dan Prince Williams’ coach
Godfrey McQuay.

“They watched what we were
doing, they were settling, we
were rushing and I had to try
my best to bring them back
after I saw what St John’s was
doing. In the fourth quarter, we
settled down and started to play
our style of ball.”

That style is using an effec-
tive trap defence and running
an uptempo offence as they sti-

fled the Giants, who commit-
ted one turnover too many
down the stretch.

Having taken the opener,
McQuay said their objective is
to come back on Monday and
show how much “better” they
are than St John’s and he vowed
that his Jordan Prince William
team “will end it in game two”.

While the Giants focused on
containing the Falcons’ two
biggest stars, Rashad Williams
and Ollen Smith, in the fourth
quarter, Jonardo Cumberbatch
exploded for eight points to
help keep Jordan Prince
William out front.

Cumberbatch finished with
16, but Williams had a side high
18, Smith had 11, D’Andre Reid
eight and Elroy Ferguson
chipped in with five.

Williams, who directed the
show for the Falcons as the
point guard, said they were a
little sluggish in the first half,
but after a pep talk from
McQuay at the break, they
started to turn things around in
the third.

“We settled down, ran our
plays and it worked out for us
down the stretch,” Williams
said. “We know we are a fourth

Come Monday, Williams said
they will display a lot more
intensity and play as they did
when they met during the regu-

St John’s, who led 18-12 after
the first quarter and extended it

“But Monday will be a dif-

AS teachers in Grand
Bahama continued their sick-
out yesterday, Minister of Edu-
cation Alfred Sears said that
there isn't anything more the
ministry can do in the circum-
stances.

"I am asking all of us to tone
down the rhetoric; lets deal with
the problem. I have put forward
a plan, it has specific deadlines
by which we must perform," he
said, speaking on the talk show
Immediate Response on ZNS.

According to Mr Sears, a com-

_ mitment has been made by the

ministry to ensure that 367 teach-
ers who are in need of salary

reassessments — having been
brought in and paid at an "entry
level" — will receive the correct
salaries by the middle of march.

This also goes for any
allowances owed, a statement

-said yesterday.

In light of this, the minister
has called for "the return of all
teachers to the classrooms in
Grand Bahama."

He said the ministry has
assured that staff at the Min-
istry of Public Service have
agreed to “expedite the
process” and are working

The ministry has repeatedly
sought to associate the prob-
lems which have come to public
attention in the last week with
"strenuous efforts" to address
teacher shortages by carrying
out an “aggressive recruitment
drive".

While in the school year 2005
to 2006, 277 teachers were
employed, in the following year
407 were brought on board, a
statement from the ministry

said.

This ameliorated shortfalls in
key areas, it claimed.

However, in the process many

teachers have not received the
correct salaries — taking into
account their qualifications — or
allowances their contracts stated
they were owed.
- One of the complaints put
forward by secretary-general of
the Bahamas Union of Teachers
Belinda Wilson is that rental
allowances, which many teach-
ers posted outside of New Prov-
idence are contractually owed,
have not been paid.

This oversight means some
educators are struggling to "pay
basic bills" she said on Wednes-
day.

However, yesterday educa-
tion permanent secretary
Creswell Sturrup said that hav-
ing looked into some of the
claims of unpaid rent, the min-
istry "do not see evidence" of
allowances not being paid in
many cases.

"We have looked at our
records and we do not see evi-
dence of it."

He contended that it may be
the case that some teachers

think they are owed rent — but

in fact it was never a part of ©

their contract.

"We have asked to have a
comprehensive review for per-
sons who have not received an
allowance to assess first of all
their entitlement to the
allowance," he said.

On Wednesday, Mrs Wilson
reported to The Tribune that
teachers in Grand Bahama were
poised to take industrial action
over funds owed to them.

Since then, a number of sick-
outs and demonstrations have
been carried out.

Mrs Wilson said "government
incompetence" over a period of
years has already caused hun-
dreds of teachers to lose out on
thousands of dollars in unpaid
salaries or promised allowances,
leaving them without the means
to support themselves or their
families.

According to Mrs Wilson, the
union has had to offer loans and
donations to some teachers to
help them stay afloat, and has
pleaded with landlords not to
evict others.

She claimed that for months,
government departments
including the Ministry of Edu-
cation, the Ministry of Public
Service, and the Treasury gave
the union the "run around" with
regard to their complaints.

FOUR new cruise liners -
two of them 130-ton ‘super-
liners’ - could appear in
_Bahamian waters over the
next four years as Carnival
Cruise Lines expands its 21-
ship fleet.

The first, the 110-ton Car-
nival Freedom, is expected to
make its debut in Europe
next month and the second,
the 112-ton Carnival Splen-
dour, will enter service in
July next year.

The two biggest, the 130-
ton Carnival Dream and Car-
nival Magic, will join the fleet
in 2009 and 2011 respectively.

Representing a new class °:

of vessel for the line, these
3,652-passenger “fun ships”

THE US embassy officially opened
and unveiled its renovated Consular Sec-

ANY custody battle over the
baby daughter of the deceased
Anna Nicole Smith will have to
be fought out before the
Bahamian courts, US lawyers
are arguing.

According to reports, five-
month-old Dannielynn may

have left. the Bahamas, where .

she was apparently being cared
for by the family of a Cabinet
Minister Shane Gibson, and
taken back to the US.’

A Tribune source close to the
case claimed that the former
model’s partner and longtime
lawyer Howard K Stern trav-
elled back to the Bahamas yes-

resent an effort to significantly reduce

terday morning only to collect
the baby and immediately
return to the US.

The Tribune has also learned
that Ms Smith’s mother, Vergie
Arthur, travelled to the
Bahamas yesterday morning
and met with police and social
services officials in her effort to
claim the baby.

Dannielynn — who could
stand to eventually inherit hun-
dreds of millions of dollars -—
was born at Doctors Hospital
in September of last year and
currently holds dual citizenship;
both Bahamian and American.

As the questions surround-
ing the sudden death of Ms
Smith continue to be asked in
Florida, speculation regarding

the true paternity of Dan-
nielynn has become the centre
of media attention.
Both Ms Smith’s former
boyfriend, photographer Larry
Birkhead and Mr Stern are
claiming to be the baby’s father.
A Los Angeles judge, who
just last week ordered Ms Smith
to submit her baby to DNA
testing, yesterday rejected the
request by. Mr Birkhead for an
emergency extraction of DNA.
The judge also ordered that
Ms Smith’s remains be pre-
served pending a February 20
court date on the paternity bat-
tle over Dannielynn.
Ms Smith’s US lawyer Ron
Rale told MSNBC yesterday
that the judge also denied Mr

Birkhead’s emergency request
to return the baby from the
Bahamas to California.

Mr Rale said that at the Feb-
ruary 20 hearing, the court will
first have to determine it can
legally request an DNA extrac-
tion from the body of the

' deceased star.

“It is not sure if it has jurisdic-
tion at this point to even ask for
her DNA since she is no longer a
party to this case,” he said. ©

As Mr Stern is named as the
father on the birth certificate
and Mr Birkhead never applied
for the custody of the baby in
front of a court in the Bahamas,
the lawyer and partner of the
deceased will retain’ custody for
now, lawyers are arguing.

US embassy unveils new visa waiting room

ar re Consul General at the Embassy, Vir-
ginia Sher Ramadan, noted that between

the 300 io 500 people can pass through
the waiting area per day. She stated that
the doubling of the size of the area and
the incorporation of an online compo-
nent of the visa process, would allow
individuals to come into the waiting area

$25 million prize to fight climate change

LONDON — British tycoon Richard
Branson dangled a $25 million prize before
the world’s top scientists, Friday seeking
to spur research into devising ways to suck
greenhouse gases out of the air.

Former Vice President Al Gore lent his
support to the challenge, which came a
week after a landmark report by the
world’s leading climate scientists and gov-
ernment officials warned that global warm-
ing will continue, creating a far different
planet in 100 years.

“Man created the problem, therefore

man should solve the problem,” Branson’

said. .

He compared the quest to a competition
launched in 1675 to devise a method of
estimating longitude accurately. It was 60
years before English clock maker John
Harrison discovered an accurate method

_ and received his prize from King George

“The Earth cannot wait 60 years. We
need everybody capable of discovering an
answer to put their minds to it today,”
Branson said. ay

Branson hopes his offer will lead to a
viable machine for vacuuming the Earth’s
atmosphere of carbon dioxide, one of the
greenhouse gases blamed for rising tem-

_ peratures.

It’s an.idea many scientists and the Inter-
governmental Panel on Climate Change
say may be possible someday.

David Keith, a University of Calgary
engineering professor who has a provi-
sional patent on carbon atmospheric cap-
ture technology, said the key is developing
a process that is cost effective.

“People have been doing it for 50 years ...
after all the plant in my office does it,” he
said.

If Branson was offering money for car-

bon-capturing regardless of price, Keith
said he could do it right now — but not
efficiently. A nf

“This is really about price,” he said, say-
ing he believed his method could capture
carbon dioxide for $300 a ton.

Scientists in Scandinavia have started to
safely divert carbon dioxide emissions

“I see no evidence that a quantifiably
acceptable solution or pathway has been
identified — period,” said Jerry Mahlman,
former head of climate modelling at the
U.S. government’s National Oceanic and
Atmospheric Administration.

“Everybody would love a fix but we
don’t have it. It’s quite a way off. You can’t
dream up stuff, you have to get it right,” he
said.
Gore said the planet has a “fever” and
the world has to listen to experts.

He said last week’s report by the Inter-
governmental Panel on Climate Change
offered conclusive evidence the planet is
not well. The report said average temper-
atures on Earth could increase 2 to 11.5
degrees by 2100.

“Up until now, what has not been asked
seriously on a systematic basis is: ‘Is there
some way that some of that extra carbon
dioxide may be scavenged effectively out of
the atmosphere?’ And no one knows the
answer to that,” Gore said.

the prize.

He reiterated a commitment made in
September to invest $3 billion toward fight-
ing global warming, saying he would devote
all profits from his travel companies over
the next 10 years. As part of that pledge, he
launched a new Virgin Fuels business,
which is to invest up to $400 million in
green energy projects over the next three
years.

Organizers of the “Virgin Challenge”
said the winner would receive $5 million
once judges ruled a carbon-dioxide removal
process succeeded. The rest of the money
would be paid out over a 10-year period if
the judges decided the goal of removing
significant amounts of greenhouse gases
had been met over the long term.

About time ©
to sort out
our police

EDITOR, The Tribune.

ISHALL be grateful for a lit-
tle space in your newspaper to
address an issue that I feel should
be of grave concern of all
Bahamians, but which seems to
not receiving an attention, at
least not in the public forum.

Over the past few months
there has been much talk about
the indepehdence of the judicia-
ry. However no one has sought
to comment or question the inde-
pendence of our law enforcement
agencies. I ‘particularly want to
address the independence of the
police force. ;

It appears as though the Com-
missioner of Police is no longer in
command of his force as pro-
nouncement after pronounce-
ment is being made by cabinet
ministers other than the minis-
ter of national security.

Case in point. Just a few days

ago a cabinet minister read a let- :

ter from the commissioner of
police in the House of Assem-
bly concerning an investigation
into allegations of a visa scam at
his ministry. I beg to ask to
whom was that letter addressed.
Surely I would hate to think that
the Commissioner would have
sent a letter to the Minister of a
ministry that is under investiga-
tion for alleged corrupt practices.
One would think that if such an
investigation was launched, who
would have initiated the com-
plaint, and to whom should the
results of the investigations be
communicated? One would think
that in such instances the Minis-
ter of National Security or the
Prime Minister himself should
be the persons to whom such a
response would be forwarded.
But in disbelief, the minister him-
self read the communication.

Then there are the Ministry. of
Housing allegations. Members of
the public only found out about
the investigation when the Min-
ister himself announced that
there is an investigation. What
shocked me was that it was the
minister who even announced
who would be conducting the
investigation! It was only after
he had announced the investiga-
tion and who would be conduct-
ing it that a statement came from
the police indicating that the
investigation was in fact taking
place, and confirming that this
same person would be conduct-
ing it. ‘

What I find most interesting
is that the cabinet seems to be
dictating who investigates these
matters. The officer who was
identified to investigate the mat-
ter is, I am told, not the person
who is head of the police Cor-
ruption Branch, but that he is in
charge of other areas of the
force. How is it then that he is

hand-picked by the complaining
ministers to conduct investiga-
tions? How is it that the officer
who should be responsible for
conducting such investigations is
not involved?

To make matters worse, I read
in the newspapers recently where
the minister gave an update on
the investigations. He was able
to state the exact stage of the
investigation. But nothing has
been heard from the police. Is it
proper practice for a complaining
minister to be updated on the

progress of police investigations? :

If anyone should be giving
updates on the investigation it
should be the commissioner of
police. ; ‘

To me these are blatant abus
es that clearly show that the com-
missioner is not in control of his
force and that he is being dictat-
ed to by members of parliament.

The incidents in the Pinewood
Gardens constituency last year
also smack of blatant interfer-
ence by yet another cabinet min-
ister, who also happens to be the
representative for that area.

We all can recall the unfortu-
nate incident when a young man
was allegedly shot and killed by a
police officer. Before the inves-
tigation was completed the MP
was in the area making strong
statements that she will ensure
that justice is done in this case. It
is my information that after the
police investigations were com-
pleted it was recommended that
the matter go to the Coroner’s
court to be investigated to deter-
mine if the shooting involved a
criminal act. However against the
recommendations of the police
and the normal practice, the
Attorney General recommend-
ed that the officer be charged
before the courts. So said, so
done!

Several months after that inci-
dent, the brother of the young
man killed, who is also a police
officer, was involved in an inci-
dent with his colleagues in the
parking lot of one of the stations.
The brother was reportedly beat-
en by his colleagues and received
serious injuries. Before the inves-
tigation was complete one of the
police officers involved in the
incident was charged before the
courts. This is not the normal
practice I am told as normally
officers would be dealt with
departmentally. Was any pres-
sure placed on the commissioner
to charge the officer before the
courts? Would there have been
the same outcome had it not
involved a constituent from this
particular constituency?

These incidents are highly

‘ questionable as the procedures

— so I am told — followed in
both instances, were contrary to
normal practices and procedures,
What makes it even more suspi-
cious is that the person who is
said to have directed what action
should be taken is the Member of
Parliament for the area and after
she would have made public
statements to the effect that she
will see that justice is done. If
not highly irregular there surely
is a conflict of interest in this mat-
ter and the attorney general, in
my opinion, should have excused
herself from these matters and
let someone else deal with them
as she was too emotionally
involved.

Again the question must be
asked who is running the force?
The present commissioner has
surely lost control of his organi-
sation as it seems that he is being
dictated to by cabinet ministers

other than his own minister who ;

seems to be very silent on any
matters relating to national secu-
rity.

Then there is the issue of
police promotions, My under-
standing is that the senior pro-
motions have been ready since
May last year but they have not
been released as yet. There are
sergeants I am told who have
been acting inspectors since
December 2005 and have not yet
been confirmed. I am told that
some of those persons have actu-
ally passed the retirement age
and should be put on pension as
they still hold the rank of
sergeant.

What is the delay in releasing
the promotions that have been
ready for almost a year? My
information is that the list was
considered “too FNM” and
therefore had to be reviewed to
ensure that more PLPs were

added to it. Certain key persons
who were personally promised
that they would be promoted did
not make the cut and so the pow-
ers that be could not authorise
the list to be released until cer-
tain changes were made.

But the Prime Minister was
caught in a Catch-22 situation
because he recently had made an
announcement in the House of
Assembly with words to the
effect that he never has or
intends to interfere with police
promotions. To change the list
and to add on other persons who
may be identified as PLPs would
show him not to be telling the
truth. I am told that the former
Prime Minister and leader of the
opposition may have got a copy
of the list and therefore the cur-
rent prime minister is afraid to
change it.

Information now being circu-
lated by certain “generals” in the
force is that a compromise has
been reached and that those per-
sons who were promised and
were expecting a favour will get
their promotion and that others
will be added as well so that it
does not seem as if only persons
of a certain political persuasion
were added.

There has always been political
interference or influence with
police promotions and I guess it -
will not stop. The “old” PLP did
it, the FNM did it, but this so-
called “new” PLP has taken it to
a “new” level. They have taken
full control of the process from as
far back as three years ago which
resulted in large promotions that
far exceeded the published
vacancies. In one instance the list
was ‘almost doubled as cabinet
ministers and PLP MPs tele-
phoned the commissioner with
names of officers who had to be
promoted whether they were
competent or qualified. The pub-
lished list took almost three days
to finalise as names were contin-
ually being added. Although the
first list came out on the Friday,
some names were added on the
Sunday.

I could go on and one with
examples of where the police
force is being run from some-.
where else other than police
headquarters. The commissioner
is seen as impotent by the rank
and file of the organisation and
officers will tell you that if they
want something done all they
have to do is go to a politician
and “so said, so done!” The
morale in the force is now at an
all time low as there is little or no
respect for the leaders.:

Ask the commissioner what
has happened to his succession
plan and his training plan for his
officers. I understand that early
in his administration he set out a
game plan to train his senior offi-
cers. No regard was given to their
political backgrounds or connec-
tions as the plan was developed
to make sure that when it was
time for the present command
of the force to retire there would
be a core of competent officers
ready take over. That all changed
since May 2002 because if you
look at the officers who benefit-
ed from\ training opportunities
overseas it can be clearly seen
that the persons selected were
handpicked elsewhere.

The police force is a key
organisation within our country
and it should not be used as a
tool for politicians to reward
their stalwarts and cronies, no
matter which party is in power.
Crime knows no politics. Despite
the best efforts to suppress how
serious a crime problem we have,
crime is on the increase! I'am
sure that when the criminals go
out to commit their cowardly acts
they do not plot to target PLPs or
FNMs. They target innocent peo-
ple as they do not care who their
victims are.

It is time for politicians to take
their hands out of the affairs of
the force and allow the commis-
sioner and his other commis-
sioners to run the organisation.

‘After all they are the ones with

the experience and should be left
alone to do their jobs.

I just received information that
the force is getting ready to have
another promotion exercise for
the “lower” ranks. My source
was unable to provide many
details at the time of writing this
letter, but I shall investigate and
reveal what information I know
in due course. ;

The force is in total disarray
and something must be done!

Two brothers are
arraigned over
Prosper murder

m@ BY NATARIO McKENZIE

TWO brothers’ were
arraigned in Magistrate’s Court
yesterday and charged in con-
nection with the November
2006 murder of Devron Pros-
per.

Brothers Roy Morrison, 37,
of Williams Court and Wayne
Morrison, 36, of Eastern Road
appeared before Chief Magis-
trate Roger Gomez at court
one in Bank Lane. The men
were not represented by an
attorney.

It is alleged that the two

intentionally and unlawfully
caused the death of Devron
Prosper on Thursday, Novem-
ber 23, 2006.

They were also charged with
causing harm to Dyson Sands _.
on the same day. ;

Prosper, of Redland Acres,
was 26 years old at the time of
his death. He was stabbed and
died in the hospital.

The brothers were not
required to enter pleas to the |
charges. The matters were
adjourned to February 22 and
transferred to court 10 on Nas-
sau Street.

Workers claim management of |
Baha Mar refuse to meet lawyer |

@ By ALEXANDRIO MORLEY
Tribune Staff Reporter

THE LABOUR dispute
between Baha Mar executives
and casino workers is heating
up as hotel management
refused to negotiate with the
workers’ attorney, it has been
claimed.

The Tribune has obtained
copies of letters sent between
the two parties involved in the
dispute.

In a letter dated February 6,
Bahamas Hotel Managerial
Association President Obie Fer-

guson wrote to Mr Don Robin-.

son, chief executive officer of
Baha Mar, in his capacity as an
attorney to notify him of the
casino workers’ position.

The document says: “This let-
ter serves to formally advise you

and your colleagues that the |

workers have selected me (Obie

Ferguson and Co) to be their
spokesperson to management

on their behalf. You are there- :

fore advised to deal.with myself
as regards industrial relations
matters relating to the work-
ers.”

Ferguson’s letter states that
the casino workers have “seri-
ous concerns” that require
urgent attention, including
claims that casino staff have not
received a raise in 12 years, that
management has saturated the
casino with unnecessary staff,
croupiers have not been paid
for overtime worked, and dis-
crimination and victimisation
have occurred in the workplace.

Ferguson’s letter concludes:
“In light of tense relations being
cultivated, time is of the essence
in bringing resolutions to these
matters. I am therefore, invit-
ing an early meeting to resolve
these issues.”

In response to this letter, Mr
Robert “Sandy” Sands, senior
vice president for govern-
ment/external affairs of Baha
Mar, wrote to Mr Ferguson on
February 7.

Policy

Mr Sands’ letter reads: “It is
not the policy of this company
to discuss matters relating to its
employees with persons other
than the employee or a duly
recognised bargaining agent.”

This past Super Bowl Sun-
day, Crystal Palace casino work-
ers carried out a mass sick-out
that involved more than 20 per-
sons, despite repeated warnings
from management that such a
strike would be illegal, because
the casino workers are not
unionised.

Mr Sands said that industrial

ACP Greenslade, who is

his transfer from the northern

specifics about his new appoint-

were “uniting in solidarity” with

claimed was mandatory, but
Baha Mar executive Robert
Sands said the existing indus-

Mr Sands also said that Mr
Ferguson only represents a bar-'

It has also been suggested by
labour director Harcourt Brown
that the BHMA strike vote may
not have been legal, because a
department of labour official was
not present to supervise the voting.

Mr Sands’ February 7 letter
was, faxed to Labour Director

ister Shane Gibson, and Prime
Minister Perry Christie.

Ava Miller

Age 30+

Field: Financial
Services Sector |
College educated -
Bachelor’s degree
Single mother

A lady of high stan-
dards and expectations,
Ava describes herself as
a natural-born Capri-
corn, -independent,
fiercely loyal, loving and
very romantic.

“T do not look at what
an individual is on the
outside, but rather what
they have to offer on the
inside - because that is

maybe a little prickly -
according to what the
situation calls for.

A romantic at heart,
Ava also has an adven-
turous side — anyone up
for hang gliding?

So what type of man
is Ava looking for?

Preference No 1:
Dark chocolates

Preference No 2:
Creamy caramels

Looking at the big
picture however, Ava
recognises that her pref-
erences are insignificant
when compared with
what can be gained by
allowing the true char-
acter of a man to shine





where the personality
proceeds from. I must
mention also that
throughout my life God
has been there for me
and I have a deep rever-
ence for the things of
God, but do not boast of
being perfect.”

A natural sweetheart is how
Ava describes herself, but there
is a proviso — don’t get on the
wrong side of this woman. A
woman of principles, Ava places
a premium on honesty, within
herself and others. In fact, she
prefers people to be upfront
with her.

“IT am upfront with people. |
don’t hold things in. I might
hold something in for a little
while, but I always tell you
what’s on my mind...nicely or

through.

Ava is looking for a
guy who is sensitive in
every sense of the word,
a man who respects
himself and others

lives his life based on a
strong moral code and
godly principles.

Ava wants a man who knows
the value of compromise, but
who is also able to stand firm
when his core beliefs are being
called into question. She wants
someone who is capable of giv-
ing and receiving love and
someone who does things “just
because”. Also important to
Ava is finding a man who is
independent, and who meets
with success as he strives toward
his goals and aspirations.

Canadian firm and
Cacique make fun
for Exuma children

CACIQUE International
prides itself on its ability to help
its corporate and international
clients create the ultimate expe-
rience when in the Bahamas —
whether it means designing a
one-of-a-kind awards banquet,
organising outrageous and orig-
inal team-building activities,
preparing a sumptuous meal or
helping them give back to the
Bahamian community.

When 20 of Canada-based
Playground Real Estate’s top
performers went to the Four
Seasons Exuma on an incentive
programme, they hired the Des-
tination Management Company
at Cacique to co-ordinate their
visit.

ner asked for Cacique Interna-
tional’s help in doing something

needed sporting equipment and
even toys for all of the school’s

‘help like this’” said Mr Bostick.

«Was raised in foster homes

Associated Grocers is one of

begin constructing a facility at
the Grand Bahama Sea/Air

Rutherford. “This donation
should help us tremendously
with our home costs and will
save us thousands.

“We actually cannot take on
all that we have been given and
the perishable foods will be
divided between several chari-

Captain Mathias of the Sal-

was very timely and would assist
them with their food distribu-

“This donation came in the
nick of time as the beginning of
the year is pretty slow for dona-
tions because people are recov-
ering from Christmas and pay-

donation could not have come
at a better time for us,” he said.

_ Emergency measures at Fox H
after officers take industrial action |

FROM page one

NEITHER Mrs Pratt nor Lt
Commander Rolle at the
Defence Force base could con-
firm exactly how many Defence
Force officers had to be brought
in to secure the prison.

Mrs Pratt said she was "sur-
prised" that the action had tak-
en place as she felt the govern-
ment had "certainly addressed
most of (the officers) concerns."

The officers, however, in a
statement issued on Thursday
night, disagreed with the asser-
tion that their grievances had
been addressed.

_. Both Mrs Pratt and Dr Rah-
ming have sought to play down
the officers’ complaints of a lack

of protective gear.

She suggested that govern-

ment had attempted to ensure
that an adequate number of
vests - at a cost of $600 each -
had been provided.

"The Prison Staff Associa-
tion themselves selected these
vests and then found out that
they were not the type of vests
that they wanted - we tried to
do everything they have asked
us to do," she said.

On Wednesday, disgruntled
officers pointed to a new
awning over a car park at the
prison as evidence of mis-
spending of government funds
at the prison.

Mrs Pratt reasserted. state-
ments that "questions of parity"

between the disciplinary forces
will not be addressed until the
completion of a compensation
study in March.

"I also informed prison offi-
cers that all outstanding mat-
ters with regard to terms and
conditions at the prison will
continue to be resolved in
accordance with an under-
standing between the executive
of the association and the gov-
ernment arrived at on Decem-
ber 14," she said.

This agreement outlined
deadlines in early 2007 for,
among other things, the delivery
of promotions owed for years.
Some officers have been paid
"recruit" level salaries since
2005, the association claim.

Also in the agreement were
improvements to be made to
living quarters, although no
time frame was given for these.

Agreement

Mrs Pratt said only that it had
been "agreed that it has to be
done" and currently the min-
istry is looking into re-housing
officers.

This has to be taken care of
before any work can be done,
she said, as the quarters needed
to be totally "torn down" rather
than renovated.

In Thursday night's state-
ment from the officers, com-
plaints were made that govern-

ment promises to improve living
quarters had gone unfulfilled
several times before.

"Some three years ago, we
submitted a proposal...outlin-
ing the conditions and offered
ourselves to provide labour and
the government to provide
materials, they agreed, but
eventually we were ignored,"
said the statement.

More promises of improve-

ments to the quarters were

made by Prime Minister Perry
Christie and then Minister of
Housing Shane Gibson last
August, they said.

"They said 'so said, so done',
we are saying ‘so said, nothing
done'," ran the statement.

Mrs Pratt said that she had

reminded officers that morning
of "infrastructural work that has
been completed since 2002."

She said it needed to be
made known that significant
improvements had been made
at the prison since the current
administration came to power.

"People don't know what to
believe. Staff association says
nothing has been done, super-
intendent is saying a lot has
been done, I am saying a lot has
been done - I know how much
the government has spent," she
said.

To this end the DPM has
called upon an "impartial civil-
ian committee" to assess the
prison on Monday, and report
back to the public, she said.





Ownership of Anna Nicole Smith
home still subject of legal battle

‘FROM page one

However, Cedric Parker and
Co, the law firm representing
Ms Smith in this matter at the
time of her death, said that Mr
Pinder’s information was com-
pletely wrong.

“Once again you have fed the
press totally inaccurate infor-
mation regarding this matter,”
Mr Parker wrote in a letter to
Mr Pinder yesterday.

The law firm suggested that
Mr Pinder read the Survival of
Action Act 1992. :

The Act states that “subject
to the provisions of this sec-
tion, on the death of any per-
son after the commencement
of this Act all causes of action
subsisting against or vested in
that person shall survive
against, or, as the case may be,
forthe benefit of, that person-
“sestate.”

This would mean that any
representative of Ms Smith’s

estate would still have to face
the legal wrangling over the

time later.

Death of model makes
planned Daniel Smith
inquest ‘more urgent’

FROM page one

“The fact that both of them.

have died under sudden death
circumstances makes this
inquest that much more inter-
esting,” he said.

He added that, if it becomes
necessary, Bahamian authori-
ties will attempt to compel Ms
Smith’s partner and long-time
lawyer Howard K Stern to
return to the country and testi-
fy as witness in front of the
Coroner’s Court on March 27.

At a press conference held
yesterday in Hollywood, Flori-
da, Broward County’s chief
medical examiner Dr Joshua
Perper, who performed the
autopsy on the body of the
celebrity, told the media he was
ruling out foul play in the death
of Ms Smith.

Dr Perper said that more

tests will be needed to deter-
mine the exact cause of death,
explaining that the former Play-
boy: playmate: could have died
of natural causes, due to some
medication, or from a combi-
nation of reasons.

Seminole Police Chief Char-
lie Tiger said that no illegal
drugs were found in the hotel
room of the Seminole Hard
Rock Hotel and Casino in Hol-
lywood, where Ms Smith died
on Thursday afternoon.

“We found no illegal drugs,
only prescription medicines,”
he said.

Dr Perper said that he was
able to exclude any sort of phys-
ical injury as the cause of death,
such as a “gunshot wound,
asphyxiation or blunt trauma.”

He only revealed that he
found “subtle findings” in the
heart and gastrointestinal tract,

and blood in her stomach from
being in shock before she died.

Dr Perper added that he also
found minor bruises on her
back which she had reportedly
sustained in a previous fall in
the bathroom.

He said that Ms Smith appar-
ently had ‘been sick for several
days with some kind of stom-
ach flu.

The former reality star’s
mother Virgie Arthur told
ABC’s “Good Morning Amer-
ica” yesterday that she blamed
drugs for her daughter’s death.

“I think she had too many
drugs, just like Danny (Daniel
Smith). I tried to warn her

‘about drugs and the people that
she hung around with. She did-
n’t listen. ~

“She was too drugged up. By
the last interview I saw of her,
she‘was so wasted,” she said.

lowed 10 runs later, scoring his
82 from 102 deliveries, also with
seven fours.

Monty Panesar removed
Ponting, caught by Colling-
wood, and fellow spinner Jamie
Dalrymple accounted for Hay-
den.

Australia seemed set to capi-
talize on the Ponting-Hayden
stand but steadily crumbled, los-
ing its last eight wickets for 72
runs in 25 overs to be all out in
the 49th over.

After the second-wicket pair,

Hussey’s 17 and Brad Hogg’s

Australia was set to launch
an assault on the England
bowlers inside the last 10 overs
but, instead, lost wickets steadi-
ly and failed to set a fully com-
petitive total in what appeared
to be outstanding batting con-
ditions.

Slow to medium pacer Paul
Collingwood kept up the mid-
innings pressure and sharp Eng-
land fielding, which led to two
run outs, contributed to Aus-
tralia’s decline.

When Panesar trapped Brad
Hodge Ibw for five in the 37th
over, at 196 for four, the course
of the match was slowly turn-
ing. Pee kana ae
England struck two key blows
when it removed Clarke and



he first final of

Hussey with successive balls in
the 43rd over, and with the
score at 229. Clarke was run out
by a brilliant throw from
Collingwood to the non-strik-
er’s end and Hussey tickled a
simple catch to wicketkeeper
Paul Nixon off Andy Flintoff.

Including Hussey and Clarke,
Australia’s last six wickets fell
for 23 runs and England ended
the first innings of the match at
least with parity with its favored
opponent.

Flintoff took three for 41 —
the wickets of Hussey, Hogg
and Glenn McGrath who was
bowled for a duck on his 37th
birthday. Panesar took two for
44 and Sajid Mahmood two for
45.

Afridi is charged with bringing game
~ into disrepute by ICC chief executive

@ CRICKET
DUBAI,
United Arab Emirates
Associated Press

PAKISTAN bowler Shahid
Afridi was charged Thursday
with bringing the game into dis-
repute Uivough an alleged

aggressive altercation with a
spectator.

The charge was related to an
incident after Afridi was dis-
missed in the one-day interna-
tional against South Africa at
Centurion on Sunday.

“As the player walked up a
set of stairs towards the dress-

ing room, a spectator apparent-
ly said something to him and
Afridi reacted by appearing to
push his bat at the person in an
aggressive manner, causing the
spectator to take evasive action,”
the ICC said in a statement.
Afridi is free to play for Pak-
istan until a hearing, which has

yet to be determined, takes
place. If found guilty, he faces a
ban of between two and four test
matches or between four and
eight one-day internationals.
Afridi scored 17 runs for
Pakistan in the match, which
was the first of five one-day-
ers. South Africa won the

match by 164 runs.

International Cricket Council
chief executive Malcolm Speed
charged Afridi after studying
video footage of the incident
while in the Caribbean, where
he is attending a series of meet-
ings ahead of next month’s
World Cup.

Under ICC rules, Speed is
allowed up to five days to
charge someone. The match
umpires, either side’s team
manager and either side’s chief
executives also have the author-
ity to charge someone, but must
do so within 18 hours if the inci-
dent.

Shane Gibson’s
future in doubt
after Anna N icole
Smith furore

m@ By PAUL TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter

TOP PLP financiers are push-
ing to block the nominations of
Sidney Stubbs, Keod Smith,
Kenyatta Gibson, and Shane
Gibson from running onthe:
party’s ticket in the next gen-
eral election, The Tribune has
learned.

According to well-placed
sources, the quartet have all
proved to be too much of a lia-
bility for the party’s hierarchy,
who are seeking to extricate the
PLP as far as possible from any
form of controversy or scandal.

Of top priority, it was report-
ed, was the immediate “black-
balling” of Shane Gibson, the
Minister of Immigration and
Labour, after the abrupt death
of Anna Nicole Smith.

Yesterday international
reports stated that Anna
Nicole’s newborn baby Dan-
nielynn was being cared for by
the family of Minster Gibson -
namely his mother.

The controversy surrounding
Anna Nicole, and ultimately
what will follow in the paterni-
ty battle for her young daugh-
ter, is a dilemma that the party
would prefer to distance itself

from - especially with an elec- °

tion only months away.
Minister Gibson has consid-

erable support in the Golden

Gates constituency, and accord-

Emergency measures at

ing to reports would have little

_ difficulty in retaining his seat.

Despite this, however, the
possible fallout over the Anna
Nicole affair may hurt other
PLP candidates on a national
level who have only marginal

~teads-ever- their FNM. counter-

parts.

Sidney Stubbs, it was report-
ed, has struggled in the Holy
Cross constituency and, coupled
with the BAIC controversy and
Korean Boat scandal, may be
more of a liability than an asset.

Keod Smith and Kenyatta
Gibson, it was reported, both
shattered each other’s hopes of
re-election with the very pub-
lic and poorly handled brawl at
the Cabinet Office on Bay
Street.

Last night numerous allega-
tions emerged regarding sever-
al malicious scandals that could
erupt if the various men were
not nominated.

Sources allege that Prime
Minister Perry Christie may be
hard-pressed to assure that
these and other “secrets” were
kept from the public.

However, it is understood
that there will be considerable
pressure placed on the nomina-
tions committee to ensure that
the men named will not be gain-
ing re-election under a PLP
banner - despite attempts by
Prime Minister Christie to the
contrary.

Fox Hill after officers
take industrial action

i By ALISON LOWE
Tribune Staff Reporter

EMERGENCY measures

had to;be taken to secure Fox

Hill prison yesterday after 75
per cent of prison officers took
"illegal" industrial action.

Minister for National Secu-
rity, Mrs Cynthia "Mother"
Pratt, directed staff - who are
on what she termed a "wildcat"
sick-out - to immediately return
towork.

A platoon of Defence Force
officers were drafted in to cov-
er for the missing officers in the
early hours of the morning
when senior officials realised
the action was underway, Lieu-
tenant Commander Eddison
Rolle confirmed.

Yesterday was the third - and
most disruptive - day of industri-
al action by the officers, who are
demanding back pay, promotions
they claim are owed, improve-
ments to their living quarters and

more protective gear.

They claim they are not
being treated with parity in rela-
tion to other disciplinary forces.

Responding to the action,
Deputy Prime Minister and
Minister for National Security
Mrs Pratt chaired a morning
meeting between government
ministers and prison staff,
including Superintendent of
Prisons Dr Elliston Rahming.

"I reminded the prison staff
association that they were
involved in an unlawful action
in violation of their contract of
employment as part of a disci-
plined force, and I directed their
immediate return to work," said
Mrs Pratt.

She said she wished to reas-
sure the public that "the prison
service continues, that inmates
are safe and secure and that the
national security of the country
is not compromised."

Ownership of Anna
Nicole home still
subject of legal battle

_ THE legal battle over the
rightful ownership of the East-
ern Road home ‘Horizons’ will
continue despite the sudden
death of US celebrity and
Bahamian permanent resident
Anna Nicole Smith, lawyers
said yesterday.

Godfrey “Pro” Pinder, rep-
resenting Ms Smith’s former
boyfriend G Ben Thompson —

who is claiming that he owns

the home - on Thursday -

claimed that-the “matter has
died with (Ms Smith).”

Mr Pinder said Ms Smith had
been the one to apply for own-
ership of the luxury home and
that with her death this appli-
cation had also died.

Third man is charged in
connection with double
murder last month



@ By NATARIO McKENZIE

FRANKLYN Stubbs, 24, of
Moncur Alley, was arraigned
before Chief Magistrate Roger
Gomez yesterday in connection
with a double murder which

Nottage Estates, were arraigned

on the same charges. They were
remanded to prison.

Court dockets stated that
Stubbs, being concerned with
others, intentionally and unlaw-
fully caused the death of
Shervin Miller Jr on Thursday,
January 25.

Stubbs was also charged with
armed robbery. The charge stat-
ed that on Thursday, January
25, 2007, Stubbs, being con-
cerned with others, robbed
Shervin Miller Jr of a 1999 Ford
Explorer valued at $5,000.

Minister to ask again about exclusion —
of youngster from GSSSA games

@ By KELSIE JOHNSON
Sports Reporter

THE Minister of Education,
Science and Technology, Alfred
Sears was called upon once
again to intervene in an ongoing
battle between the Government
Secondary School Sporting

Association (GSSSA) and

young Cedricka Sweeting.

Sweeting, an eighth grader at
HO Nash (Lions) Junior
School, was denied clearance
and eligibility by the GSSSA
after transferring from the DW
Davis Junior School last year.

The refusal by the GSSSA
bars Sweeting from any after-
school sporting activities being
held under the association's
umbrella. And if not reinstated
by the GSSSA by the next
game, she will be forced to sit
out the rest of the season.

The letter states: "It is the
decision of the Eligibility Com-
mittee, that Ms Cedricka Sweet-
ing has been ineligible for the
2006-2007 school year.

"Should you require any fur-

ther clarification please feel free ©

to contact the Association."

This letter was signed by
GSSSA president Edna Forbes
and the GSSSA secretary,
Katrinka Marshall.

Copies of the letter, dated
October 20, 2006, was sent to
Lions' principal Franklyn Light-
bourne and head coach Patri-
cia Johnson.

The Tribune contacted
Forbes, who claims she was
unaware of the letters concern-
ing Sweeting's case, but did not
deny signing the letter. She
referred all comments to. the
association's constitution.

Forbes said: "You are show-
ing me something that you said
I have signed, and J am saying
to you that there is a draft con-
stitution that we offered to
every parent. And we welcome
any parent to come and get.a
copy of it so they can know

exactly what is happening in our ~

association.

ineligible. Like I said before we

Discussions

When asked if any of the
drafts had been approved by
the Ministry of Education,
Forbes revealed that they (Min-
istry of Education) had various
discussions on the drafts, adding
that the GSSSA is governed by
school principals.

However, the letters received
by the Tribune did show that
Mr Sears and his board of direc-

tors had already intervened, but
Forbes and the GSSSA still
refused to reinstate Sweeting.

@ CEDRICKA Sweeting

istry of Education has conclud-
‘ed that Cedricka Sweeting is eli-
gible to,participate in all sport-
ing activities sponsored by the
Government School Secondary
Council (GSSSA), 2006-2007."

Sweeting, who recently cele-
brated her 14th birthday, was
scheduled to play on Thursday
according the instructions sent
in by Mr Sears. But Thursday's
game was cancelled and Sweet-
ing said she was still not allowed
to play.

A day after learning that
Sweeting was not reinstated into
the GSSSA, Mr Sears was con-
tacted and he said: "My posi-
tion on this matter is that Ms
Sweeting should be allowed to
play. The Director of Educa-
tion sent a letter to the relevant
authorities indicating the posi-
tion of the Ministry.

"Under the Education Act,
we have an obligation to ensure
that all of our students are treat-
ed fairly and whenever any mat-
ter comes to our attention,







@ Comedian George Lopez watches his tee shot on the first tee during the first round of Pebble

which raises a concern of unfair
treatment or exclusion, then we
have a duty to ensure that there
is a quality of treatment by our
students and that includes their
rights to participate in any of
the athletic and academic pro-
grammes offered in our facilities
and our staff.

"Yes I must declare that the
director and other ministry
officials met with the execu-
tives of the association. The
matter came to my attention
and I asked the director of

‘education to review the mat-

ter..We met with Ms. Forbes
and thé executives and out of
those meetings we issued the
position of the ministry, which
is, Ms Sweeting should be
allowed to play. °

"Anybody can draft a new
constitution, but the question is
it legal? Associations can only
have one constitution at a time,
a draft is only a draft until it is
duly and properly adopted by
the body."



Mr Sears said he will demand
another review of the case and
see what further actions the
ministry should take on the cir-
cumstances. ;

The refusal by Forbes has Ms
Lowe-Wright, Sweeting's legal
guardian, claiming the reason-
ing for her granddaughter’s inel-
igibility, was based on
“favouritism and vicitimisa-
tion”. .

Ms Lowe-Wright revealed
that Sweeting's transfer was to
bring her closer to her Flamingo

‘Gardens home and not to harm

any school's sporting pro-
grammes.

She also stated that her
granddaughter is losing faith in
the system on a daily basis.

When the Tribune spoke with
Sweeting, she said: "All I want
to do is play."

A meeting is scheduled to
take place on Monday with Mr
Sears, the director of education,
Forbes and executive members
and Sweeting’s legal guardian.

Davis Cup: Vliegen beats Hewitt to_
give Belgium 1-0 lead over Australia

@ TENNIS
LIEGE, Belgium
Associated Press

KRISTOF Vliegen twice
came back from behind to beat
former top-ranked Lleyton
Hewitt 4-6, 6-4, 3-6, 6-3, 6-4 and
give Belgium a 1-0 lead over
Australia in-their first round
Davis Cup tie.

Vliegen, ranked a modest
41st in the world, won the



match in 4 hours, 20 minutes
for World Group newcomer
Belgium, which is back in the

. top tier of men's tennis after a
three-year absence.

Hewitt started well, going up
2-0 in the first set when-Vliegen
sent a dropshot into the net on

whis serve, but the Belgian
rebroke immediately, putting
Hewitt on the defensive with
his heavily chopped shots from
the baseline.

Hewitt then denied Vliegen
another break in the fifth game
after a 10-minute tug-of-war
before surging ahead 5-3, only
to waste five set points and
allow Vliegen to narrow the gap
to 5-4.

But the Australian, who led
his team to a Davis Cup title in
2003, regained his composure,
losing only one point on
Vliegen's next serve and claim-
ing the first set 6-4.

The second set went with the
serve until the ninth game,
when Vliegen converted his first
break point to go up 5-4 then
swept the next game, sending
the Country Hall du Sart-
Tilman into a frenzy.

Long rallies and heavily
chopped shots again prevailed
in the third set on the slow clay
court, with Hewitt managing a
crucial break and holding on to
win 6-3.

But Vliegen, excelling with
a wide variety of shots, put
up a fight in the fourth set,
racing to a 4-0 lead and win-
ning the last game to claim
the set 6-3. Hewitt made sev-
en double faults and convert-
ed only 32 percent of his first
serve.

Vliegen broke Hewitt again
in the first game of the last set
and held on for a 5-4 lead,
before facing three break



points by the resurgent Aus-
tralian. Vliegen saved all three
— one with an ace — then con-
verted his third match point for
one of the biggest wins of his
career.
Australia, last year's World

ond most successful Davis

appearances, including 28

WNBA star's

light up Israel

m@ BASKETBALL
RAMLE, Israel
Associated Press

PLENETTE Pierson of the
WNBA champion Detroit
Shock is used to playing in front
of thousands of fans back home
in the United States. This winter,
the forward is showing off her
skills in front of nearly empty
stands in small-town Israel — and
loving it.

Pierson is among the growing
number of WNBA stars who
moonlight overseas during the
offseason. Buoyed by a small but
rabid fan base, Israel has become
a top destination.

"I think the Holy Land has
been the land of basketball, I
think the WNBA players just
now found out about it," said
Pierson, who has become so
popular she can barely walk
through the streets of this back-
water town without being
swarmed by fans.

According to the WNBA,
Pierson is one of 17 players in
Israel. Nearly 130 play world-
wide, in countries including Rus-
sia, South Korea and Australia.

Pierson, along with teammates
LaToya Thomas of the San
Antonio Silver Stars and
Monique Currie of the Chicago
Sky, have turned their Elitzur
Ramle club into a juggernaut.
The team is 15-2 and has
clinched a first-place finish and
playoff berth, just a year after
temporarily shutting down
because of debt.

"The league is just as compet-
itive and tough as the WNBA,"

said Pierson, who's averaging.

18.5 points and 7.8 rebounds per
game.

Thanks to a basketball-crazed
mayor and funds from several
corporate sponsors, Ramle has
become the top draw for
WNBA players in Israel. The
team says it pays each of its
American players about
US$80,000 a season, tax-free,
throwing in a car and apartment,
too.

The 10-year-old WNBA has
lasted longer and been more suc-
cessful than any previous U.S.
women's pro league. But salaries
range from about US$31,000 to
US$90,000, with the bulk falling
somewhere in the middle, and
the regular season is just three
months long.

So even top players — such as
Lisa Leslie, Sheryl Swoopes, Sue
Bird and Diana Taurasi — travel
the world each winter in search
of extra cash. European leagues
also allow the women to stay in
shape and arrive for the WNBA
summer league in top form.

"If we were making money
like the men, we wouldn't have
to go overseas," Thomas said.
"Playing basketball is a job. It's
not a fairy tale, we just go out
and play."

‘Currie, who's working toward
a master's degree at Duke Uni-
versity, said she welcomed the
opportunity to travel the world
and see new things while better-
ing herself as a player.

"Of course we would like to
be back in the States, like the
men, and not have to play the
entire year, but at the same time
we enjoy what we are doing, we
are still playing basketball, still
having fun," said Currie, who

‘leads Ramle with 21.9 points per

game.

In many ways, the Israeli
women's league is far more
exciting than that of the men.
The competition is wide open,
while the men's league has been
dominated for years by peren-
nial European powerhouse Mac-
cabi Tel Aviv.

And while the men's league
typically attracts foreign players
either at the beginning or the
end of their career, the women's
league is filled with players in
their prime. Recent Israeli pros
include WNBA standouts Dean-
na Nolan, Vickie Johnson, Mwa-
di Mabika and Cheryl Ford. |

Nowhere is the play more
appreciated than Ramle in cen-

tral Israel, where the team has

become the pride and joy of a
city normally associated with
crime and poverty.

To counter Ramle's tradition-
ally negative image, Mayor Yoel
Lavie decided in the mid-1990s
to turn his run-down city of
70,000 into a center of women's
hoops. He enlisted a host of local
sponsors and also poured large
sums of municipal funds into the
team.

Elitzur had won five of the
previous 10 championships,
overcoming teams from the larg-
er cities of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv
and Haifa, before tax debts
forced it to shut down for the
season last year. Under new
management, and thanks to this
year's crop of American imports,
the team has reinvigorated the
city again.

DUBLIN, Ireland

IRELAND'S struggle to
beat San Marino will make
Steve Staunton's struggle to
keep his.job even tougher.

Staunton, who took over
as coach one year ago, was
mercilessly pilloried in the
media Thursday, hours after
his team needed an injury-
time goal to win 2-1 at San
Marino in a European
Championship qualifying
match.

"Minnows 1, Muppets 2,"
the front page of the Irish
Sun declared.

"Staunton finds new level
of ineptitude," the Irish
Times wrote.

Irate fans flooded the air-
waves to demand that
Staunton, nicknamed Stan,
be fired after nearly allowing
San Marino - losers of all 38
of its European matches
since 1990 — to record its first
qualifying point.

"Stan-dalous" and "Stan
Down!" the Irish Daily Star
headlined.

"It was very nearly the
biggest embarrassment in
Irish soccer history," said
Liam Brady, a former Ire-
land and Arsenal player.

Staunton holds the record
for most appearances for Ire-
land's national team, but he

_ took over from Brian Kerr

with little coaching experi-
ence.

"The incompetence was
staggering," said Eamon
Dunphy, a sports commen-
tator and former Ireland
defender. Staunton "has no
capacity to manage, no
understanding of the game."

Bobby Robson, who
serves as Staunton's part-
time consultant, spent 75
minutes Thursday fielding

calls from angry fans on Ire-.

land's national radio station,
RTE. The former England
coach defended Staunton's
tactics and direction. ‘

"Nine (San Marino) guys
stood in front of the goal-
keeper and they kept one up
front. It's not easy to work
through nine people," said
Robson. "Everybody thinks
we should've won 10-1, but it
isn't easy."

Later the chief executive
of the Football Association

Ireland in uproar over the

basketball league

struggle to beat San Marino

of Ireland, John Delaney,
rejected calls for Staunton
to be fired. "Steve and the

. Management team have a

job to do," he said.

Delaney, who also reject-
ed calls for himself to resign,
conceded Staunton had lit-
tle coaching experience.
"That's why we brought
Bobby Robson in — to be his
mentor." -

Ireland reached the quar-
terfinals at the 1990 World
Cup under Jack Charlton,
then made the second round
four years later. The Irish
again reached the second
round in 2002 with Mick
McCarthy as coach.

It's been all downhill
since.

Kerr took over when
McCarthy failed to qualify
for the 2004 European
Championship. Kerr was
fired when he missed out on ~
the 2006 World Cup.

In Euro 2008 qualifying,
Ireland has only two wins
and a draw from five games
in Group D — both wins over
San Marino. Germany and
the Czech Republic lead the
group with 10 points from
only four games. The Irish
face Wales and Slovakia at
home next month.

Ireland took the lead
Wednesday when Kevin Kil-
bane scored with a header
in the 49th minute. Manuel
Marani then equalized in the
86th — for San Marino's first
competitive goal since 1998. —
Stephen Ireland scored the
winner in the fourth minute
of injury time, eight seconds
before the final whistle.

Irish Times sports colum-
nist Tom Humphries said
Ireland was humiliated by °
conceding a goal to San
Marino, whose members
"play like men who expect
to encounter visa problems if
they approach the halfway
line." 4

Tony O'Donoghue, the
RTE sports editor, said he
thought Ireland's players
had lost confidence in
Staunton.

"It was as though the team
had never played together
before," O'Donoghue said.
"The play from set pieces
was-absolutely awful. It's
unthinkable to think an Ire-
land team could play so bad-
ly in this day and age."

QUEENS Park Rangers will hold an
internal inquiry into a wild brawl during
a friendly with China's under-23
Olympic soccer team, a fight that left
one Chinese player unconscious and
caused the game to be abandoned with
15 minutes to play.

"We are looking into what hap-
pened," Rangers chairman Gianni Pal-
adini told the BBC on Thursday. "If
any of our players are guilty of any
wrongdoing then they will be dealt with
accordingly."

The match was played Wednesday
night at Queens Park Rangers’ training
facility. QPR was leading 2-1 when the
match was halted.

"QOPR can confirm that an incident
occurred at our Harlington training
ground yesterday, during the game
against China's under-23 squad," the
club said in a statement. "The club
abhor violence of any sort and do not
condone the actions taken by anyone
involved."

The statement said no further com-
ment would be made until an internal
investigation was conducted.

Calls to QPR by The Associated Press
on Thursday were not immediately
returned.

The Chinese Olympic team was invit-
ed to train in London by Premier
League club Chelsea, which is trying to
make inroads into China's lucrative

sports market. Chelsea launched a new
Chinese-language Web site last month in
Beijing, and announced new sponsor-
ship deals in China.

The Chinese team, as part of its stay in
England, also scheduled several friend-
ly matches, including Wednesday's
game.

Referee Dermot Gallagher stopped
the game after the brawl and police were
called. Zheng Tao was then taken to
Hillingdon Hospital with a suspected
broken jaw.

Gallagher is expected to file a report
with England's Football Association.

"If this incident is reported by Mr.
Gallagher then, of course, we will be
investigating it fully," the FA said.

Footage of the fight aired Thursday in
China, showing China striker Gao Lin
throwing punches after being picked up
by a Rangers player. Both players fell to
the ground, then others joined the fight.

"That's the style of English soccer,"
China's Olympic coach Ratomir
Dujkovic told the Beijing sports daily
Titan. "But no matter what they do, it
shouldn't be a reason for fighting. | am
really disappointed. It is not acceptable."

Gao is being sent back to China, Titan
said.

"I failed to control myself," Gao was
quoted as saying in the London Evening
Standard. "When facing the provoca-
tion I failed to obey the three rules of
submitting to the referee, respecting
opponents and not striking back, which
caused the incident. I sincerely apologize
to the fans."

*\ THE St John’s Giants and
the Jordan Prince William Fal-
cons’s girls teams hooked up in
a real shoot-out in the second
half. It ended up with the
Giants nipping the Falcons 46-
45 yesterday at the Kendal

The victory gave St John’s .

a 1-0 lead in the Bahamas
Association of Independent

girls best-of-three champi-

ue on Monday with game
two. i
“Excellent. Excellent,” said
Jordan Prince William’s coach
Horatio ‘Yellow’ Poitier. “Two
good teams and two upcoming
coaches. \
* “Our girls’ executed, almost
to perfection. I’m proud of my
girls. I’m even proud of St

John’s girls. They did an excel- ,

lent job. They came out with a
game plan and they executed
to the tee. I must congratulate
coach Brown. They played like
real giants.”
—One of those players that
really stood tall was Gabrielle
Nixon, the track and field sen-
sation.

She was left open numerous
times and worked hard on the
boards for offensive. rebounds

out-ran the St John’s Giants to
take a 1-0 lead in the Bahamas

In a rematch of their show-

the pennant when they went in
undefeated, the Falcons pulled
away from a 51-51 tie to soar
to a 59-55 victory yesterday at
the Kendal Isaacs Gymnasium.

came from a 30-30 tie at the end

‘of the third.

Nixon ended up with 13,
while Caryn Moss, Oresha
Rolle and Vashti Hinds all con-
tributed 10.

For Jordan Prince William,
who trailed 14-8 after the first
quarter and 21-16 at the half,
Shantara Brown scored a game
high 24 and Onicea Light-
bourne chipped in with 15.

Giants’ coach Herbie Brown
said his team just. wanted the
game more than the Falcons.

“It was a close, tight game,
but we preserved, thank God,”
Brown said. “I told coach Poiti-
er that the best team will come
out on top and I think we

_proved that the Giants are num-

ber one.”

As for game two, Brown said
as long as they play with the
same kind of intensity, they
should be able to “pull it off” on
Menday. ay :

Poitier said as long as they
play better defence, they can
come back and even win the
series.

“We'need less fouls and play
more defence,” he said. “We
had this game, but some times
the cookie crumbles. We just
played an awesome game. We
hope to play better than that
on Monday.”

“To have two games like that
back-to-back, we had to go with
our defence because we knew
that St John’s would come out a
little more organised,” said Jor-
dan Prince Williams’ coach
Godfrey McQuay.

“They watched what we were
doing, they were settling, we
were rushing and I had to try
my best to bring them back
after I saw what St John’s was
doing. In the fourth quarter, we
settled down and started to play
our style of ball.”

That style is using an effec-
tive trap defence and running
an uptempo offence as they sti-

fled the Giants, who commit-
ted one turnover too many
down the stretch.

Having taken the opener,
McQuay said their objective is
to come back on Monday and
show how much “better” they
are than St John’s and he vowed
that his Jordan Prince William
team “will end it in game two”.

While the Giants focused on
containing the Falcons’ two
biggest stars, Rashad Williams
and Ollen Smith, in the fourth
quarter, Jonardo Cumberbatch
exploded for eight points to
help keep Jordan Prince
William out front.

Cumberbatch finished with
16, but Williams had a side high
18, Smith had 11, D’Andre Reid
eight and Elroy Ferguson
chipped in with five.

Williams, who directed the
show for the Falcons as the
point guard, said they were a
little sluggish in the first half,
but after a pep talk from
McQuay at the break, they
started to turn things around in
the third.

“We settled down, ran our
plays and it worked out for us
down the stretch,” Williams
said. “We know we are a fourth

Come Monday, Williams said
they will display a lot more
intensity and play as they did
when they met during the regu-
lar season.

St John’s, who led 18-12 after
the first quarter and extended it
to 30-21 at the half, got a game

“Tonight, the guys came and
they played for pride. I said to
them that we have to be hungry
and they showed that,” Major
said. “We had a little bit of mis-
takes down the stretch when we
tried to dribble down the mid-
dle, which wasn’t the game plan.

“But Monday will be a dif-
ferent story. It was a little men-
tal lapse for us when we went
into that dribbling mood and
we got beat. But Monday will
be a different story. We shot
the ball very well, but we have
