Massive project aims
to put the City of
Nassau in the picture

By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
aturnquest@tribunemedia.net

A MASSIVE collabora-
tive project has been
launched to commemorate
the 150th anniversary of the
City of Nassau.

_ Hoping to inspire a new
sense of ‘pride. and patrio-
tism’ in Bahamians, the
Dowtown Nassau Partner-

ship (DNP) is calling for
submissions to create a col-
lage of the city.

Gevon Moss, DNP pro-
ject manager, explained that
the organisation plans to use
the project to positively
engage residents and broad-
en the dialogue about the
ongoing transformation of
downtown Nassau.

Mr Moss said: “For thou-

_ THE RIDE FOR HOPE RAISES
$400,000 FOR CANCER SOCIETY



THE collective efforts of
untiring cyclists, countless vol-
unteers, and generous corpo-
rate sponsors have paved the
way for one of the largest gifts
to date to the Cancer Society
of The Bahamas, as the Ride
for Hope gifted the organisa-
tion $400,000.

Cofounder Stephen
Holowesko said, "We have
two simple goals for the Ride
for Hope. First, we want to
hold a safe event, one that
inspires our riders, our spon-

sors and the community. Sec- _

ond, we want to ensure that
the funds, so carefully raised
by our riders, are distributed
in the most direct and cost
effective way possible to help
Bahamians fighting cancer.”

Riders

Mr Holowesko said that in
the first five years of the event,

more than 1,000 riders collec- ©
tively pedalled over 10,000*

miles and raised $1.3-million.
“With the generous support

of our event sponsors, who ..

have underwritten the costs of.
the Ride for Hope, we have
consistently ensured that every
dollar raised by our riders goes
to our cancer-related: pro-
grammes,” he said.

So far, Ride Hope has:

e Paid for genetic research
into breast cancer gene muta-
tions in Bahamian women,
which, it has been discovered,
are the highest known rate in
the world.

e Created and funded the .

Family Island Mammogram
Screening Initiative (FIMS),
which brings at-risk Family
Island women to Nassau for
mammograms. To date 500

women have come to Nassau .

for screening and follow up vis-
its.

° Worked with
AstraZeneca, one of the
world’s largest and leading can-
cer drug researchers, to have
the Bahamas certified for
inclusion in their clinical drug
trials.

e Paid off the debt incurred
by the Cancer Society in build-
ing the acclaimed Cancer Car-
ing Centre in Nassau, where
Bahamians can stay while
receiving treatment and
receive the support and care
they need. —

¢ Helped pay for construc-
tion of the Cancer Society

for the islands of Eleuthera,
Spanish Wells, and Harbour
Island.

e Funded the Emory Uni-
versity School of Nursing study
into Breast Cancer and the
impact of Culture on Aware-
ness, Education and Treatment

Mr Holowesko said on
Monday: “We are announcing
two more significant initiatives
today, focusing on education

and treatment. These distribu-.
tions take us over the $1 mil-:
lion mark in monéy spent on‘
education, research, screening .
and treatment. More impor- .

tantly, these initiatives are near
and dear to our core mission

and to that of the Cancer Soci- -

ety of the Bahamas.,

“The first gift of $200,000
will help the Cancer Society »

launch a national education
programme to spread the word
about risk, prevention, early
screening diagnosis, and treat-
ment. Both of our organisa-
tions believe fervently that rais-
ing awareness will positively
impact and save lives.

“The second gift — also of ;
- $200,000 — will help the Gancer

Society establish and adminis-
ter what we believe is the first-
ever cancer assistance treat-

ment fund. The Ride for Hope’

Treatment Assistance Fund
will provide direct financial
assistance to cancer patients in
need.

Proud

‘Mr Holowesko said the Ride

for'Hope “could not be more’

proud” to be helping to launch

these much needed pro- °

grammes.

“None of this would have °

been possible without the gen-
erosity of spirit and resources
of our participants, volunteers
and corporate sponsors. It is

their collective efforts that have .

helped us make the Ride for

Hope into one of the most suc-.

cessful fundraising and com-
munity events in the Bahamas.
And as the programmes listed
above amply show, we are
making a. difference for
Bahamians suffering from can-
cer. We are saving lives.”

Ride for Hope Bahamas, a
registered Charity in the
Bahamas, was formally consti-
tuted in 2009.

It was established for the
purpose of raising money to
support initiatives related to
health, wellness and human
development.

Ride for Hope’s designated
focus is cancer. The six year
old bike-a-thon held each
spring on the island of
Eleuthera is the organisation’s
flagship fund raiser.

Organisers say that without

exception, every dollar raised
by participants is applied to
programme support.

City of Nassau is our work
place, residence, dining hall,
party spot, lounge and meet-
ing room, place to conduct
business, the legislative hub,
our market place, our learn-
ing environment, our play-
ground, our memories, our
history, our welcome centre,
our banking centre, place of
worship, our shopping mall

— in a nutshell the City of
Nassau is our life.”

Residents

. Mr Moss added: “No one
could capture the essence of
the City of Nassau better
than its residents. Every
year, millions of tourists find
themselves on the shores of
Downtown Nassau, and they
have captured their portion
of this 150 year old city.
Now it is our time.”

“beauty, interests, composi-
tion, colour, originality, and

JOURNALIST AND
BUSINESSMAN
REVIVES THE
VANGUARD PARTY

THE socialist Van-
guard Party has been
revived under the interim
leadership of journalist
and businessman, Charles
Fawkes.

Mr Fawkes, who will
serve as the party’s first
secretary, is also the-pres-
ident of the National
Consumer Association
andiorganiser for the
Commonwealth Group of
Unions.

Founded in 1971 and
originally known as the
Vanguard Nationalist and
Socialist Party, the party
suspended political activi-
ties in 1995.

According to.Mr
Fawkes while the party’s
old slogan — “Dare to
Struggle - Dare to Win”
— will be preserved, the
words “socialist and
“nationalist” will be
dropped.

“Henceforth, the
grouping will simply be
known as the Vanguard
Party (VP). However, the
party will remain as a
party of the left, exclu-
sively committed to the.
workers of the Bahamas,
the wider Caribbean and

the world and will partici- |

pate in the ongoing
debate and struggles from
that perspective,” said
the party in a statement.
Over the next six
months, it said, VP will
reorganise its Central
Committee, other party
organs and its supporters.

In addition, the party’s _

newspaper, “The Van-
guard” will begin publica-
tion once again.

. “In the coming months,
the organisation’s philos-
ophy will be further
explicated and dissemi-
nated to the public as the
second edition of the par-
ty’s book, The Struggle
for Freedom in the
Bahamas” will be pub-
lished. Other officers of
the party will also be

named and elected from _

the reorganised general.

said.

that in the “new type” of
party that “New Van- ©
guard” hopes to become,
the First Secretary will
serve as leader. ,
“Additionally, it should
be noted that to be a par-
ty of the people, it is not
enough to say that the
party represents the
masses. The party must
be an actual weapon of
the masses, articulating
their needs and demands
and struggling untiringly
for their interest.
“In a class divided soci-
’ ety, no party can speak
for all the classes. Those
who serve the interests of
the rich who profit from
the present economic sys-
tem must of necessity
work against the interests
of the poor and
oppressed masses. And

the neo-colonial PLP and .

FNM can no more serve
the working-class majori-
ty in Bahamian society
than could the old UBP.

“Only the Vanguard is
a workers’ party today,
and the political awaken-
ing of the Bahamian
working class will be ~
measured by the strength
and militancy of their
support for the Van-

_ guard.”

When first organised in
the early 1970s, the Van-
guard Party grew out of
the youth arm of the Pro-
gressive Liberal Party,
and drew inspiration ©
from the Black Panther
Party in the United
States.

Despite running Sonate
dates in elections in 1977
and 1979, the first Van-
guard Party was unable to
win a seat in parliament,
never garnering more
than 173 votes.

From 1979 to 1985, the
‘party was led by academ-
ic and political theorist
John T McCartney, now
the department head and
associate professor of .
government and law at
Lafayette College in Eas-
ton, Pennsylvania.

It went on to emphasie i

Bahamas’ geological wonders attracting international scientists

By NOELLE NICOLL
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

MANY Bahamians are
unaware of rare environmental
phenomenon that drive schools
of international scientists to the
country every year.

The Bahamas is home to the
third largest reef system in the
world, the Bahamas Barrier
Reef. It sits off the cost of
Andros on the edge of the
tongue of the ocean. Andros is
also home to the largest tropical
nursery system.of mangroves in
the Caribbean and the largest
salt water flats in the world. The
country can also boast about
having the highest concentra-
tion of blue holes.

But for all of its geological
and ecological splendour, most
Bahamians are none the wiser.

“This country is so wealthy
but we have been taught to
think that our wealth is some-
where else,” said Prescott Smith,
president of the Bahamas
Sportsfishing and Conservation
Association (BSCA).

“If we understood what we
had, we could have a complete

shift in how we market our
country and utilise the land. We
put very little emphasis on eco-
tourism, for example. A shift
means we can look at our sun,
sand and sea and see solar, silica
and science, for example,” said
Mr Smith.

If Bahamians understood the
importance of its sand as a raw
material in manufacturing they
would see more uses than just
aggregate in a concrete mix.

Resource

One of the chemical com-
pounds of sand is silica, an abun-
dant natural resource in the pro-
duction of drinking glasses, glass
for windows, solar panels,
among many other applications.
Many optical fibers used for
telecommunications are also
made from the compound silica,
said Mr Smith.

“The potential is amazing”,
he said, but Bahamians first
need to learn to appreciate sun,
sand and sea with new eyes.

Two of the geological won-
ders under high level research
locally are the country’s oolitic

sands and stromatolites. Cape
Eleuthera and Andros’ Joulter’s
Cay are famous sites to find
these uniquely round grains of
sand, sugar-sized. They have
large oolitic sand banks.

“It is the number one lab in
the world for geologists as they
do research,” said Mr Smith.

The Exuma Cays are home
to the natural marine phenom-
ena, stromalotites. They are one
of the “fascinating things of high
international importance” that
make the islands of the

Bahamas unique, said Eric :

Carey, executive director of the
Bahamas National Trust.

The stromalotites are locat-
ed in the protected waters of the
Exuma Land and Sea Park.

“To get a full appreciation for
the value of stromatolites you
are talking about high level aca-
demic study. It is Ph.D. level of
interest in what these fossils rep-
resent as living windows back
in time. It is not something the

average person would think '

about,” said Mr Carey.

“They are non-descriptive;
they look like grayish brown
rocks. They are not a thing of
beauty that would naturally

NEW. PROGRESSIVE YOUNG LIBERALS EXECUTIVE TEAM SWORN IN

: By PAUL G TURNQUEST

Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

A NEW executive team was
sworn in over the weekend to
represent the interests of the
Progressive Young Liberals.

Headed by new chairman,
Keenan Johnson, the PYL
intends to push an agenda this
year that will see the establish-
ment of new PYL branches,
youth forums, voter drives, and
a number of social outreach
projects in conjunction with
other organisations.

Complimenting the new
team on their victory, Mr John-
son told The Tribune yesterday

‘ that his group is comprised of

some very dynamic.and diverse
persons who will take the
organisation to another level.
Mr Johnson said: “I have
come to realise that the party
has understood that in order to
win this election they need the
support of their young people.

And in understanding that they '

have given us their support, and
they have assured us that we
will play a crucial role in the
actual national campaign.

“T have told the party execu-
tives, and I have told my team
before, and we have all agreed
that in order for the message
of the PLP to be effective it has
to.come from someone who
they can identify with; and they

can readily identify with their
own. '

“And so we have to be able
to go to the young people, peo-
ple our age, and tell them exact-
ly why we think they should
support us, and in supporting
us, support the party,” he said.

With the party having had an
issue in the past connecting
with younger supporters, Mr

_ Johnson said his new “dynamic

group” will make some strides
and trying to reverse this trend.

“I may think of a way in
which we can reach out to
young people, and there are
three or four other persons on
the board who will think of
many other ways. So we will
pool these ideas, and the one
thing I am happy of is the fact

that we have the party’s atten- ~

tion to listen to us, and to take
into account the advice that we
give them in moving forward
to get the youth vote.

“So while persons may say

‘the PLP may have had an issue

with attracting young people, I
feel that that is now long gone,
and we will do our best in
ensuring that it will not happen
in this election, to ensure that
the young people realise why
it is so important to bring the
PLP back into governance
because of the vision that Perry
Christie and the administration
that will come in has to enhance
the country at large.”

Scripture Thought
Micah 2 vs1-5. .
Woe to Evildoers

Woe to those who devise iniquity,And work out evil on
their beds!At morning light they practice it,Because it
is in the power of their hand.They covet fields and take
them by violence,Also houses, and seize them. So they
oppress a man and his house, A man and his inheritance.
Therefore thus says the LORD:“ Behold, against this
family | am devising disaster,From which you cannot
remove your necks;Nor shall you walk haughtily,For this is
an evil time. In that day one shall take up.a proverb against
you,And lament with a bitter lamentation, saying:' We
are utterly destroyed! He has changed the heritage of my
people‘How He has removed it from me! To a turncoat He
has divided our fields.’ Therefore you will have no one to

determine boundaries[a] by lot In the assembly of the LORD.

‘Turmoil in Egypt will reshape US role

WASHINGTON — The protests rocking
Egypt.could change the political landscape of
the entire Arab world and beyond. Possible

‘ outcomes range all the way from pro- -democ-
racy forces taking charge in Cairo to — in a
worst case — an all-out war bringing in Israel
and Iran. In between, there could be a long
period of instability that could breed econom-
ic chaos across the region and derail econom-
ic recoveries in the U.S. and Europe.

In Cairo, embattled President Hosni

Mubarak declared to his nation. in a televised °

address Tuesday night that he would not stand
for re-election but wouldn't leave office either,

_ determined to stay in power until-elections in.’

. September. Mubarak declined to rule out his
son as a candidate. Later, President Barack
Obama talked by phone to Mubarak for 30
minutes and said in brief remarks at the White
House that the Egyptian leader "recognizes
that the status quo is not sustainable and that a
change must take place."

But, Obama emphasized, he indicated

directly to Mubarak that it "is my’belief that an
orderly transition must be meaningful, it must

be peaceful and it must begin now." That ©

:’ appeared to imply, that the president was not

particularly enthusiastic about Mubarak's deci- |

sion,to wait until September. Mubarak made
his ‘half-way concession as hundreds of thou-
sands of Egyptians gathered in a major square
in Cairo to demand an end to his 30-year rule.

Egypt, the world's largest Arab nation, is
critically important to U.S. foreign policy'and
to major goals the Obama administration is
pursuing in the Middle East: the Israeli-Pales-

tinian peace process, containment of Iran's,

influence and nuclear. ambitions, counter-ter-
rorism.: "Right now you've got a thousand

people in government writing policy, memos .
said.’
Aaron David Miller, ‘a former.U.S. Mideast -

trying to figure out what's going’on,”

peacemaker who is now at the Woodrow Wil-
son Centre think tank. "The three-option
memo is standard. Option one is Armaged-
don. The world is falling apart. American inter-
ests will be completely threatened. ‘

"The third option is: Don't worry, boss, this
isn't.such a big deal. It's the middle option,
with respect to American interests, that we
have to pay serious attention to," Miller said.

’ . The worst case envisions a rise in extremist

Muslim factions in Egypt, Tunisia and even
Jordan. The Suez Canal and an adjacent
pipeline could be closed, the Egyptian-Israeli
peace accord renounced, the U.S.-Egyptian
diplomatic and military relationship ended.

Iran could move in to fill the vacuum. That
could/trigger war between Israel and Iran, per-
haps involving nuclear weapons. American
influence throughout the Region would be
greatly diminished.

Most Middle East experts and analysts don't
think such a doomsday. scenario will happen,

particula irly with encouraging signs of a peace-
ful transi‘er of power in Egypt and with the so-
far nonviolent nature of the demonstrations.
But thiere are still many signs of stress and
potential; problems ahead. And, it's clear, there
will be ni return to the status quo: The U.S.
role in tkie Middle East has probably been
altered faorever. Shibley Telhami, a Mideast
scholar at the University of Maryland, said it
was impos ‘tant for Obama to "lower our tone"
and not appear to get directly involved in the
leadershiy) change — for fear of creating an
unwelcome backlash. Any ‘period of govern-
mental uricertainty, if Egypt goes through a
succession’ of leaders, or if extremist factions

gain the up‘per hand, could keep tensions across,

the region high for a long period. Also adding
to the uncé:rtainty: The protesters are varied
and often liave conflicting agendas, ranging
from stude nts and grass-roots organizers to
online activ ists to the fundamentalist Muslim
Brotherhood that generally wants to form a
state goverined by Islamic law.The brother-
hood is cur.rently banned, but it could gain
power in ary period of political upheaval.
While the Birotherhood claims to have closed
its paramilitiary wing long ago, it has fought
politically tc) gain power. It has also built a
nationwide «charity and social network that
much ef Egy'pt's population depends on for
survival.

All nations in the region, in fact, that aren't
big oil-produ:cing states, have problems with

poverty and hunger, worries that could be |

worsened by any destabilizing event, he said.
And instabiliity in Egypt could spread to its
neighbours. .A confidential June 2005 U.S.
government diplomatic cable, posted online
Tuesday by the WikiLeaks organization,
showed that the: U.S. has long been concerned
that Egypt face.d a succession crisis.

Questions aty»out Mubarak's age and health,

the cable said, "have made presidential, suc-
cession a core national issue. '

It isn't clear low much clout will be wielded
by Mohamed E)|Baradei, the Nobel-prize win-
ning former dire:ctor of the International Atom-
ic Energy Agency, who has emerged over the
past few days as, the leading opposition leader.

"This is so ccomplex because the Egyptian
opposition has so many faces," said Peter Mori-

.ci, a University oif Maryland business professor
and former chief economist at the U.S. Inter-
national Trade C.ommission.

Morici said ov erhanging the whole issue of
possible ramificaitions is the possibility of a
tightening of oil supplies by oil-producing states
that might be unh appy with the turn of events
in Egypt's govern ance. With just a 5 per cent

-reduction in prodiiction, "you could hit $120.a
barrel and that's $4 a gallon gasoline." That
could torpedo a still fragile recovery, he said: :

EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

THE TRIBUNE





Our landscape
is littered
with missed
opportunities

EDITOR, The Tribune.

We are coming to the half-
century mark, in this era that
we call the modern Bahamas. If
we step back a bit and look at

| what we have accomplished to

this point, we see a landscape
littered with missed opportuni-

ties. A feast or famine attitude

coupled with issues of entitle-
ment that have left us wanting
to look away from what could
have been.

_It.is even more apparent

. when we look at what we have

allowed as Bahamians. Every
time we commemorate Major-
ity Rule day we end that cele-
bration trying to scratch an itch
that is more than skin-deep.
Some of our politicians have
sold us a bill of goods that have
us seeing “majority” along
racial lines and blatant attempts
are made, every January to

"remind us that “majority” is
. defined by “colour” and not by

being Bahamian.
Everytime I think about this
I want to laugh, because the

persons who fall outside of the .

“majority” seem to take their
responsibility as Bahamians

. very seriously; and it would be

very difficult for us who make
up the “majority” to exist in
this country without them;
whether they are Chinese
Bahamian, Greek Bahamian,
Italian Bahamian, Haitian
Bahamian, etc; etc; etc. Have

you noticed that all persons |

who are Bahamian, call them-

selves Bahamian? And, if you’

try to tack on any before that

Some questions for
Minister in aftermath
of Mackey yard fire

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I listened with interest and
shock to Minister Earl
Deveaux’s remarks offering his
solutions to the unfortunate fire
at Mackey yard.

I paraphrased, he intends to
clear the land, fence it in and
rebuild following the building
code, etc.

My questions are as llows:

1) Are you clearing up public
or private land?

2) Who will supply the fenc-
ing?

. 3) Is the teplackivent housing
for Bahamians or Haitians who
are here legally or illegally?

_4) Who are the culprits at
Public Works, Health, BEC,
Water and Sewage, and BTC
who facilitated this disaster on
the tax paying Bahamians in
the first place?

5) Who is going to pay for
Mr Deveaux’s generosity?

May I suggest that Mr
Deveaux do the right thing and
call for an inquiry into this inci-
dent, determine who or what is
the problem and suggest a real
solution?

you could get punched in the
face?
Perhaps, this is the question
we must answer before we
come to an agreement on what
is best for this nation, We are
caught between two political
ideologies, one that professes
to be caring and consultative,
but must be pushed around and
goosied to get things done.*
The other, seemingly cold
and unfeeling who will get
things done and run over you
and your feelings in the process

of doing what governments are

supposed to do.

Just an interjection here — .
. Can we get those street lights

fixed before someone gets run
over?

As we near this half century
the issue of National account-
ability has to be addressed.

All of the squabbling going

‘on in the present can be traced

to this generation not being as
focused as the previous gener-
ation that got us here. I'am
coming across older Bahami-
ans who are nasty in their
rhetoric toward each other,
because of political differences
that have too much weight in

a society where people have |

been known to think for them-
selves, and there is a younger

ical reference to inform them
that they have a rich, vibrant

legacy and the world did not
start in 1967.
I cannot close without com-

.menting on the Wikileaks in

today’s papers. It is good that
the Chinese involvement in the
Caribbean is getting the atten-
tion of the US State depart-
ment. It is the kind of attention
that can be likened to an indict-
ment for our closest neighbours
when you look at missed oppor-
tunities.

I would like to blame it on
the British and their influence
on Caribbean history and the
“stiff upper lip” they gave to
us, plus a level of education that
backed it up, to the extent that
many Caribbean students going

to colleges and universities in

America have a command of
English that lecturers find
impressive.

However, this attention
could be more about a shifting
economic reality, where many
of the Caribbean customers
who imported goods from: the
US are now going directly to
China themselves, it is now a
buyers market for Caribbean
importers doing business in the
United States. China has also
been good for the US economy
as the term “Made in the USA”
is coming into vogue again as
US manufacturers see the wis-
dom doing more at home. Per-
haps there is a message here
for us in the Bahamas.

EDWARD
HUTCHESON
Nassau, :
January 14, 2011.




January 22 is an ominous day of mourning in the US.
On that day in 1973 the US Supreme Court cast a dark
cloud over America by outlawing unwanted human life.
On that day the courts decreed, in clenched affirmation, that -
the womb — the very cradle of life — was the most unsafe
place for an innocent human being to live.

But no matter how decadent and nihilistic our ‘leaders,
media, and lobbyists (like planned parenthood) have become
in praise of a false sense of freedom, they will never quash
the true human spirit of life and liberty that lives and grows.
in the very depths of the common man. This is because
“everyman” is educated by his heart and conscience, not his
pride. He cannot be deceived by the intricate tricks of the
intellect that would lead him to doubt the obvious fact that
an embryo is a human being or believe that human beings in
their earliest stages of existence are expendable.

Happily, this is becoming increasing clear in the insup- °
pressible and ever vibrant “Walks for Life” that are spring-
ing up throughout America and around the world.

Let us not give in to the false promises and hopes of our

contemporary elites who tell us that we should live only for

today and forget the gift of life in the womb. Let us instead
shout from the hilltops the scientific fact and moral truth that
a human embryo is a dynamic, autonomous, and mar-

velously ordered human being.

abour Dept ‘has

no knowledge’
of lay-offs at

container port

Officials told ‘relevant
spokesperson unavailable’

FREEPORT — Officials at the Labour

' Department say they have no knowledge.

of lay-offs at the Freeport Container Port,
despite reports that more than a dozen
workers have been let go.

The lay-offs were said to have taken place
on Friday of last week, but efforts to reach
officials at the port proved fruitless up to
press time on Monday.

.When The Tribune contacted the Labour
Department in Freeport, an official said that
they had attempted to contact the human
resources department at the Container Port
to verify the claims, but were told that the
relevant spokesperson was not available.

Meanwhile; a new union for workers at
the Container Port is soon to be officially
registered as a trade union by the Ministry of
Labour.

Director of Labour Harcourt Brown said
~ attorneys are in the process of completing
the vetting of the union's constitution.

He said the union is expected to receive its
registration certificate soon. ,

- The Freeport Container Port is one of the
largest employers on Grand Bahama.

The law requires that whenever a union is
going to be registered, certain documents,
including the union's constitution, have to be
submitted to the Ministry of Labour.

Mr Brown said the union submitted ‘its
constitution last year.

“We have all the information‘now and it is
going through the vetting process. As soon
as that process is complete, we will then
proceed.

After being registered, the union has to

apply for recognition from the Freeport |

Container Port as the bargaining agent for
workers.

If the company does not recognise the
union, then the minister of labour has to
decide whether the union should be recog-
nised as the bargaining agent.

he SPAY AND NEUTER CLINICS ARE A IGE aS

BAHAMAS Humane



Society executive director
Stephen Turnquest lead a
team of volunteers to the
Islands of Exuma and
_ Eleuthera to promote
responsible animal owner-
ship, through free spay and
neuter clinics.

A four-day clinic was held
on Exuma and a three day
« clinic on Eleuthera, which
resulted in a total of 280 ani-
‘mals being neutered. Dog
licenses were available at
both clinics and all dog own-
ers were encouraged to
license their dogs.

Mr Turnquest said: “One
of the myths I hear fre-
quently is that by neutering
an animal it somehow takes
away their pet’s ‘manhood’,
or that ‘she needs to have
her first litter’ but this is sim-
ply not true.

“Pets do not have egos
and neutering or spaying
will not cause an emotional
reaction or identify crisis.”

According to Mr Turn-
quest, spaying or neutering
will help pets live longer
healthier lives, and make
them less likely to roam the
streets or create a public nui-
sance by barking, howling
or marking territory.

Neutered dogs can
become even better protec-
tors. They focus on their
family and home rather than
trying to get out and repro-
duce.

Of course, Mr Turnquest
said, vaccinations are essen-
tial to prevent diseases like
distemper, preventing need-

less suffering and veterinary :

bills.
On behalf of the Humane



. Agriculture,

Society, Mr Turnquest

thanked the Lyford Cay
Foundation for purchasing
two anesthetic machines
which helped to make the
surgeries possible.

He also thanked the Exu-
ma Foundation, Sandals
Exuma, the Ministry of
Pet Pals,

teers, Canadian volunteers
and all those from various.

The BHA added in a
statement: “Spay and neuter
really does save lives and
reduce suffering. Instead of
buying or breeding, please

adopt from the Bahamas -

rescue groups. They have
healthy, sweet pets that
make great companions

FORTUNE HILL, San Sal-

grown on the.island any more.
"Every now and then people

‘There's caves and tunnels all
through this hill that we used to
play in when I was a boy. I wish





they would get to the bottom of

panionship. His singular claim

‘ to fame rests on the fact that he

is the last survivor of three boys
who once played marbles with
a legendary cache of gems they
came across in one of the giant
solution holes that honeycomb
the land around Fortune Hill.
"People used that cave as a
storm shelter,-and when I was a

‘schoolboy we played in one of

the tunnels with what we
thought were marbles. They
were man-made," Hanna said,
explaining that years later he
learned the "marbles" were in
fact diamonds, rubies and
emeralds, undoubtedly stashed
there by one of the infamous
pirates who once frequented
these parts.

One of the other boys
shooting marbles with Hanna
in the cave was Bert Deveaux's
grandfather, Merlin Butler.

_ Deveaux, now 74, was the BEC

manager on San Salvador for
years, and considered the may-
or of the island in his day. He

also claims to have farmed the:

land around the treasure cave

' where his grandfather once

lived.
Deveaux recalls the old sto-

ries about pirate treasure from

when he was a teenager. And
he and many others on the
island are certain that in the
1960s enough gold ingots to fill
a couple of 55-gallon drums
were found at a site near For-
tune Hill and acquired by the
late Jake Jones, one of the
island's leading entrepeneurs.
It was Jones who contacted

ABANDONED HOMESTEAD
near the treasure cave at
Fortune Hill on the east
coast of San Salvador.

Roy Solomon, San Salvador's
MP at the time, who sailed
down in his yacht to collect the
treasure — or so the story goes.

Ever since, Deveaux and
others have been searching for
buried treasure at Fortune Hill.
"T know more about this than
anyone else and I'd like to see
it found for the benefit of the

country," he told me recently. ©

"I used: dowsing rods to find

the cache, and there is more ©

than one. We think there could
be billions buried there."

It was Deveaux's Watling
Archaeological Research Com-

_ pany that ignited the first trea-

sure frenzy back in.2006, when
he began work at Fortune Hill
with a permit from the Antiq-
uities Corporation. Brave
Davis, who is the current MP
for San Salvador, was the com-
pany's lawyer; but the opera-
tion was shut down by the gov-
ernment so that conflicting land
claims could be sorted out.
These conflicts are magnified
by the island's raw political
divisions:

Gold fever erupted a sec-
ond time in 2008 when com-
peting families again began
jostling for position. This led
to the formation of a non-par-
tisan group that included Nas-
sau-based restaurateur Enrico
Garzarolli; a wealthy Ameri-
can named Grant Rose, and a
committee of leading citizens

that included Kevin Williams, .

Jim Storr, Bert Deveaux and
Charlie Jones. Rose was to pro-
vide the prospecting funds
from his own pocket.

This group was advised by
an Italian second homer named
Roberto Savio, founder of the
global news agency Inter Press
Service. His proposal called for
the government to keep 70 per
cent of the treasure, with the
rest divided among investors,
the various land claimants, a
trust fund for the people of San
Salvador (al:1,000 of them),
and United Nations children's
charities. The goal was to end
50 years of fighting by: rene
the pie.

Lifestyle

_ But again, squabbling among
families threatened to disrupt
the island's somnolent lifestyle,

so the government called a halt

to further investigations until
‘some determination could be

made of who had title to the ©
land. Late last year, State’

Finance Minister Zhivago
Laing (who has responsibility
for treasure trove) announced
that the Attorney-General's

Office was now satisfied that.

Dorothy Black-Beal, who was
born on the island but lives in
Florida, was the rightful owner.

"We took a few years trying”

to confirm the validity of doc-
umentation presented to us
about title to the land," Laing
told me. "I went to San Sal-
vador to say that the govern-
ment was able to confirm that
Black-Beal presented evidence,
which was confirmed by the
Attorney-General’s Office, that
her title to 22.8 acres of land
is a legitimate. Others would
have to challenge that finding
in court." _

Laing said. the goal was to
establish order in what was
turning out to bea very disor-
derly process. "The common
practice under treasure trove
is to enter into a share arrange-
ment with the finders so the
government does not incur the
expense of speculating and
does not discourage investment
in the search. Frankly many
seekers have no idea of such a
provision."

He was referring to the
Antiquities Act that took effect
in 1999. It says any found man-
made object at least 50 years
old is considered an antiquity
‘whose ownership is vested in
the government, although a
reward may be offered to the
finders based on negotiation.

No-one may excavate or search

for antiquities without a licence
from the Antiquities Monu-
ments and Museums Corpora-
tion. *

To get a license, applicants
must satisfy the AMMC that
any excavation will be con-
ducted scientifically and any
artifacts propérly documented
and preserved. They must also
put up a performance bond. "If
there is treasure to be found,
this is an archaeological site,"
AMMC Chairman Orry Sands
told me. "And I am pretty sure

that ic chaenlasiets don't use -

bulldozers and backhoes to

license from us to work on this
site will have to conduct a
proper investigation with our
archaeologist present.”

The situation now is that
Black-Beal is waiting for a per-
mit to be issued before launch-
ing what is sure to become a
new feeding frenzy on the
island. And at least three other

- claimants have said they will

challenge her title in court and
may also apply for permits to
excavate.

"Iam probably the least
convinced about the treasure,
although I hope there is some-
thing there for her sake,"
Black-Beal's lawyer, Greg Cot-

tis, told me- recently: ""I-guess

the good thing about not being
caught up in treasure mania is

that it allows me-to remain -

which is simply to protect her
property from trespass and
afford her the opportunity to

“According to Cottis, a Flori-
‘da archaeologist has been

engaged to monitor the
planned excavation, which, will
be conducted by Richard:Clem

. of C & H Salvage in Fort Laud-

erdale. It was Clem who began
digging at the Fortune Hill site

‘on Black-Beal's behalf over the

holidays, until he was stopped
by the government because he
had no permit from the
AMMC.

Meanwhile, there is natu- ;

rally resentment on the island
over the government's certifi-
cation of Black-Beal as the
rightful owner of the Fortune
Hill site, and- the rumour mill
has been working overtime.
Expatriate residents are said
to be prospecting at the site
under cover of darkness, and
political payoffs are always in
the pipeline — no matter which
party is in power.

During my visit, the site was

deserted. And although bull-_

dozers’ have clearéd a wide

avenue from Thomas Hanna's -

house up the hill past aban-
doned homesteads to the cave,
previous excavations have all
been filled in. According to San
Salvador's administrator,
Theresa Bootle-Bethel, "the
situation never got to, the point
of disorder, but it has the
potential to do so. A lot of fam-
ilies are involved and as long as
they believe they own the land
the controversy will go on."

A former teacher from Aba-
co, Bootle-Bethel said she is
intrigued by the treasure and
the history behind it.

"There's a lot of folklore and
speculation and suspicion
involved.

“This battle has raged for so

long that I'd like to Oe here to

see it resolved."

There is no doubt that leg-
endary pirates like William
Kidd, John Watling or Henry
Avery had the opportunity to
hide their spoils on San Sal-
vador (in fact, the island was
named after Watling until
1926), but scientific opinion is

‘very sceptical about the For-

tune Hill story.

"The San Salvador gold sto-
ty has a life of its own," one
geologist told me. "Years ago,
when I was surveying the
islands, the locals always asked
if I was looking for gold. It is
part of the culture, and people
go nuts — even reasonable peo-
ple. I have seen estimates of
billions of dollars of treasure.
One can do simple calculations
at current prices to determine
how much gold that would be.
The numbers won't add up."

Others say it is a case of, "If
I hadn't believed it, I wouldn't
have seen it:" There is a report
of some minor amount of
household goods (such as flat-
ware) being found in one of
the caves in the Fortune: ‘Hill
area, but scientists point ‘out
that most dry Bahamian caves
were mined for guano in the
1800s, so most cultural objects
are long gone. The treasure
stories tend to strain their cred-
ibility, because no one has pro-
duced a shred of direct evi-
dence, It is all hearsay.

Prospectors

Geophysical reports pro-
duced. by some prospectors in
the past are false, they say.
According to one geologist,
"Claims of being able to
resolve and identify diamonds,
emeralds, gold, silver, etc
underground are flatly untrue.
In my home state, if I failed to
report this fraud I would lose
my licence."

A Nassau- based developer
on the island pointed out that if
the apocryphal story about
Solomon acquiring-the gold
bars from Jones 50 years ago
was true, why wouldn't he — or
others in authority at the time —
have pursued the matter out of
their own greed? And a civil
engineer who has worked on
the island questions why some-
one would hide such a valuable
treasure in a way that no-one
could ever retrieve it without
demolishing an entire hill. .

While some consider the

. treasure story to be a scam, or

the result of vivid imaginations
and wishful thinking, there

~-does seem to be a consensus

on the island that the story
should be confirmed or invali-
dated once and for all, and as
expeditiously as possible. Of
course, who should or would
benefit from any actual discov-
eries is another story.

"The more IJ think about it,
the more convinced I am that
until somebody does a real
excavation, which will take sev-
eral months.and a lot of mon-
ey, we will never know the
truth," Savio told me at his
home on Sandy Point.

"My formula is to bring in a
guy with money and technolo-
gy and make a clear agreement
with the government and the
community before excavating.
If there is nothing, the prospec-
tor will lose his money. If there

. is something, the prospector,

the families, the community
and the country as a whole will
benefit. This seems to be the
only sensible approach."

bolic plot of purgatory sexual
exploitation of the boys to sat-
isfy your’ deprived sexual
appetite.

“In my mind, it is clear that
the appropriate sentence must
reflect in a real way the grav-
ity of these most serious
heinous crimes and the affect
upon these young boys, the

youngest of who appears to —

be most affected, that the boy
described himself as your sex
slave.”

Trinidadian Birbal, a for-
mer. art teacher at the Eight
Mile Rock High School, was
sentenced at the Supreme
Court yesterday.

He was convicted last
Thursday after a jury found
him guilty in six of the eight
charges of unnatural sexual
intercourse with two minors
under age 18.

Birbal was accused of hav-
ing sexual intercourse with
two former students.

The incidents were alleged
to have occurred between
January 2002 to June 2007
with one boy, and from Sep-
tember 2002 to June 2005
with the second boy.



By DENISE MAYCOCK
Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Andre Birbal
showed no emotion as he was led
away in handcuffs from the Supreme
Court on Tuesday to serve out a 35-
year sentence at Her Majesty’s
Prison in New Providence.

Birbal, 48, was found guilty of
having unnatural sexual intercourse
with two former male students at
the Eight Mile Rock High School.

The Trinidadian came to the
Bahamas some 23 years ago with
this family — a wife and son. He was
employed with the Ministry of Edu-
cation as a teacher in Abaco.

Birbal and his family later moved

_ to Grand Bahama in 1989 where he

was employed as an art teacher at
the Eight Mile Rock High School.
He taught art design and comput-
er aid design for 18 years at the
school. He taught one of the boys
for five years and the second for

. only six weeks.

After allegations of seuuel
molestation surfaced in January
2009, Birbal was removed from the

- school and sent to New Providence,
‘where he. was requested to report

in daily at the Ministry of Educa-
tion.

He resigned in February 2009.
Shortly afterward, he left the
Bahamas after investigations were
launched into complaints by two of
the former students.

Birbal was arrested in New York
on a traffic violation in May 2009.

During a check, US authorities dis-
covered that Bahamian police had
issued a warrant of arrest for Birbal
with Interpol.

The Office of the Attorney Gen-
eral applied to US officials for Bir-
bal’s extradition to the Bahamas to
face sexual molestation charges.

After being incarcerated for one
year in the United States, Birbal
was extradited to the Bahamas in
March 2010 and charged with unnat-
ural sexual intercourse with two
minors.

On May 6, 2010, Birbal was flown
to Grand Bahama for fixture hear-
ing and a trial date was set for Jae
uary 15, 2011.

During the trial, Birbal main-
tained his innocence.

residing in the Bahamas as a per-
manent resident and had never been
arrested in the Bahamas for a crime.
He and his wife were divorced.

Birbal was accused of eight counts
of unnatural sexual intercourse with
two minors between January 2002
and June 2007, and September 2002
and June 2005.

On January 26, a jury found him
guilty in six of the eight counts.

Although Birbal will be locked
away for many years, one of the vic-
tims said that the sexual ordeal he
underwent at the hands of the
accused will always remain with him.

“I am glad it is over, but it will
not change what happened to me,
it will never go away.

“Tt will still be the same inside,”
he said..

He testified that he had been

Sex case teacher jailed for 35 years

During trial, the victims,
who are now 21, testified how
their art teacher undressed
them, took nude photographs
of them, and had sexual inter-
course with them in his class-
room.

They said Birbal gave them ,

money and continued to have
sex with them up until they
were graduated from high
school.

Birbal’s attorney Carlson
Shurland intends to appeal
the outcome of the trial and
sentence imposed by the
court.

During mitigation, he said
the case was prejudicial from
the start because of pre-trial
publicity.

Mr Shurland said his client

has professed his innocence

and could not express
remorse for something he did
not do.

Prosecutor Armbrose Arm-
brister said the Crown viewed
the offences committed by
Birbal at the high end, and
felt that a sentence ought to
reflect that.

Armbrister stressed there

“were a number of aggravat-

ing factors against the former
teacher.

He noted that Birbal had
groomed one of the victims
into his “sex slave.”

“By the time one of the vic-
tims reached the 12th grade,
he said he belonged to Bir-
bal, that he was a sex slave

for Birbal,” Mr Armbrister -

said.

Mr Armbrister noted that
Birbal, a teacher of 18 years at
the Eight Mile Rock High,
had also breached the pub-
lic’s trust.

“He had a position of pow-
er, and the trust of the Min-
istry of Education and the
parents, and he breached that
trust when, he had sex with
those boys in his classroom,”
he said.

The prosecutor also noted
that the boys were very
young, ages 11 and 12, when
Birbal had sex with them the
first time.

Birbal, he said, would have
been 39 during his first sexual
encounter with the boys.

The prosecutor explained
that the penalty of unnatural
sexual intercourse carries a

accomplishments seen throughout | Cat -

Island.

Defending his 19-year record as parlia-
mentary representative for the Island Mr
Davis said: “I find it difficult to respond to
anything that is said by him, suffice it to
say that I stand by my records — All of the
Bahamas knows who and what George
Wilson is about.”

‘Mr Davis was recently in Cat Island in
what he has termed his “national listening
tour” when he assured constituents that
he would be offering himself as the can-
didate for the Progressive Liberal Party to
represent the people of Cat Island, Rum
Cay and San Salvador in the next general
election.

Speaking of the recent campaign in Cat
Island Mr Wilson said, “I find his behav-
iour, as a want-to-be national leader, as
irresponsible and reckless.”

Mr Wilson alleges that. Mr Davis is tak-
ing credit for being an instrumental part in |

such projects as the port entry on the
island, bringing cable television to the
constituency and lobbying for Bank of
the Bahamas to open a branch in Cat
Island.

He said: “No one in Cat Island has been
able to point to one thing that he has
done, but now Mr. Davis shows up to
itemize things he claims to have accom-
plished in Cat Island, Rum Cay and San
Salvador over the past 20 years.”

Responding to Mr Wilson’s accusations
the MP challenged him to “put his records
out to the public and let them decide who
is irresponsible and reckless.”

Mr Wilson said he intends to seek the
FNM nomination for Cat Island, Rum
Cay and San Salvador “because of the
_ neglect of Cat Island by Mr Davis.”

Mr Wilson is no stranger to politics
being a former secretary-general of the
Progressive Liberal Party before joining
the FNM where he led the FNM’s action
group.



Mr Wilson also ran as an independent
candidate for Cat Island in the 1992 bi-
election losing to Mr Davis.

Mr Wilson faced charges and was con-
victed of fraud in 1999 for which he served
four and half years of a 20-year sentence
in a Texas prison before his conviction
was reversed by the United States Court
of Appeals in February 2003.

Throughout his time in prison Mr Wil-

son proclaimed his innocence.

Following his return to the Bahamas
Mr Wilson campaigned for political

‘reform and constitutional change to pro-

vide greater constitutional protection for
rights of Bahamian citizens.

FNM Chairman Carl Bethel told The
Tribune yesterday that as far as he is
aware Mr Wilson has yet to apply for the
FNM seat.

He said: “I have received applications
from numerous people, however George
Wilson is not one of them.”

years, and has since been
amended to also carry a max-
imum of life in prison.

However, he noted that the
maximum life sentence does
not apply in Birbal’s case
because the offences were
committed before the law was
amended.

Justice Longley took into
consideration that Birbal is a
father, and that he has already
spent one year in prison
awaiting trial.

However, he noted that
Birbal abused the trust of the
boys and their parents, and
used the office of the church
to carry out his sexual plot.

“Evidence revealed you
were involved in the church
outreach ministry doing con-
siderable charitable. work in
the community, and through
your auspices considerable

‘charitable donations were

made to the family of these
boys.

“However ... you used the
offices of the church and your
position as a teacher, and




your relationship with the

boys to gain confidence of the |
boys, but also the confidence ~

and trust of their parents

_ “This is a wholesale sys-
tematic abuse of the boys ...
and the circumstances have
suggested that you may have
even been involved in pornog-

exposed the allegations of
sexual molestation, feels that
justice has been served for the

Colossal storm roars through US heartland

CHICAGO

A WINTER weather colos-
sus roared into the nation's
heartland Tuesday, laying down
a paralyzing punch of dangerous
ice and whiteout snow that
served notice from Texas to
Maine that the storm billed as
the worst in decades could live
up to the hype, according to
Associated Press.

Ice-covered streets were
deserted in Super Bowl host city
Dallas. Whiteouts shut down
Oklahoma City and Tulsa. And
more was on the way. Chicago
expected 2 feet of snow, Indi-
anapolis an inch of ice, and the
Northeast still more ice and
snow in what's shaping up to be
a record winter for the region.

The system that stretched
more than 2,000 miles across a
third of the country promised
to leave in its aftermath a chilly
cloak of teeth-chattering cold,
with temperatures in the single

digits or lower.

Winds topped 60 mph in
Texas. The newspaper in Tulsa,
Okla., canceled its print edition
for the first time in more than a
century. In Chicago, public
schools called a snow day for
the first time in 12 years, and
both major airports gave up on
flying until at least Wednesday
afternoon.

The storm also led Chicago
officials to close the city's busy
and iconic Lake Shore Drive
while crews tried to plow snow
Tuesday night. City officials said
the move was temporary but
that they could have to close it
again if high winds push 25-foot
waves from nearby Lake Michi-
gan onto the roadway.

Everyone "should brace for a
storm that will be remembered
for a long time," said Jose San-
tiago, executive director ofthe
city's office of emergency man-
agement.

Cities across middle America

shut down hours ahead of the
snow. Scores of schools, colleges
and government offices can-
celed activities or decided not to
open at all. Large sections of
busy Midwest interstates were
closed, and 9,000 flights had
been canceled across the nation.

Advice to stay home was fol-
lowed widely. Thousands of
office workers in Chicago's
famous downtown Loop district
left early to avoid any transit
troubles. Pete Donaghue, a 49-
year-old commodity trader,
missed an early train before
catching a 2:35 p.m. ride to sub-
urban Wilmette.

"Big mistake," he said. "I'd
be home right now, with my feet
up, clicker in hand."

At the city's elegant apart-

ment buildings closest to Lake
Michigan, employees weren't
fazed by the storm, but they
kept an eye on the lakefront
nonetheless. The wind was
strong enough outside one

building's lobby to send the
heavy revolving door spinning
by itself. |

"This is nothing to play with
here. This is gale-force wind,"
doorman Edward Butler said
as he peered outside at snow
blowing horizontally and in

_ small cyclones.

The management at Butler's
building called in-extra employ-
ees for the storm. They bought
the staff dinner and offered to
put them up for the night at a
nearby hotel, but Butler
planned to drive home no mat-
ter what.

"If you're a true Chicagoan,
you don't back down from this
kind of storm." But, he added,
"if you don't respect it, you'll
pay a price."

In Missouri, more than a foot
of snow had fallen by midday,
with no end in sight. For the
first time in history, the state of
Missouri shut down Interstate
70, between St.. Louis and





Kansas City due to a winter
storm.

"The roads are just pure
white. There's no traffic. Noth-
ing," said Kristi Strait, who was
working at Clinton Discount

Mo.

of the National Weather Ser-
vice in Des Moines said the

done to make the public aware ‘at the chal-
lenges currently faced by the hospital, it
would do well to improve the quality of care
received.

Helena Robinson, 77, was diagnosed and
referred to Princess Margaret Hospital by
the South Beach clinic for the removal of
the middle toe on her right foot on January
13. At that time, she was scheduled to have
toe removal surgery on February 4 — this
Friday.

‘Mr Robinson explained that he took his
mother back to the South Beach clinic on
Monday after he. noticed that her ankle had
swollen and the surrounding toes on that
foot appeared to be infected.

Back at the clinic, Mr Robinson said the
doctor told him that the surgery should have
taken place at the time of the initial referral
and advised that three toes would now have
to be removed. He again referred the family
back to Princess Margaret.

Mr Robinson said: "I realise that they
have some challenges on their hands but
they ain't getting it right. If you come out
and say. these are our challenges, we are

working to fix the solution, if.you would
please be patient with us. It's the communi-
cation and then the sour attitude from nurs-
es like they’re doing you a favour. They act

like they really don't care."

At Princess Margaret Hospital, Mr Robin-
son claims the gross lack of communication
and poor customer service can be attributed
to the negative experience they received on
Monday and yesterday. As an elderly dia-
betic, he said, 1; mother should have been
thoroughly assessed — as she had not eaten
since breakfast on Monday and was therefore
unable to take her medication for a full day
as she waited to be admitted and seen by a
doctor.

Hospital administration addressed claims
against the quality of service provided by
staff at the Princess Margaret Hospital late
last year following two separate-claims of
mistreatment at the facility.

In both cases — published in The Tribune -
it was concluded that the proper medical
care and treatment protocol were followed,
however, it was acknowledged that concerns
raised could have been avoided through
increased communication. Patient dissatis-
faction was said to stem from break downs in
communication between patients, relatives

_ and care providers.
In November, Coralie Adderley, chief

Hospital Administrator, explained that an
increased effort would be made to improve
communication between relatives and
patients. Ms Adderley also confirmed that
improvement efforts will include establishing
protocols so that the care team, persons pro-
viding care to patients, will explain why they
are waiting at each step.

‘Mr Robinson added: "Somebody ought to
come forward and say something to the pub-
lic — calm the nerves of the people, rather
than nobody say anything. People see a
bunch of doctors: or nurses around, but no
one is saying anything. I just came from the
hospital, but I don't know what is going on
with my mother or when she will have her
surgery. I don’t know, I just don’t know."

To facilitate the timely transfer of feed-
back from patients and relatives towards care

’ received and suggestions for improvement,

patients are encouraged to contact the Client
Feedback Unit at 328-7379.

Hospital officials were unable to respond
to concerns raised by the Robinsons up to
press time; however administration is expect-
ed to provide further information on the
matter today. .

HELENA ROBINSON was diagnosed and referred to Princess Mar-
garet Hospital by the South Beach clinic.

QUALITY IN EVERYTHING WE Do



‘unfit’ water claims

claims that the WSC had not. —

FROM page one

terday as he accused gov-
ernment of a massive cov-
er-up of negligence and
incompetence as he said Mr
Neymour’s department had
failed to address concerns
over water quality at the
Reverse Osmosis (RO)

‘Plant in.Grand Cay and did

not engage those affected in
the 500-strong community.
Concerns were first raised

' by residents and Mr Roberts

when the plant first became
operational late last year as
the water’s smell indicated it
was contaminated with
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S).
Mr Neymour asserted that
Hydrogen Sulfide is a com-
mon problem at water
plants throughout the
Bahamas as organic matter
in the soil gives off the H2S
gas, which can build up and
make the water undrink-
able, as it did at WSC RO

. plants in Exuma and Ack-

lins under Mr Roberts' min-
isterial watch. _

A team of Water and
Sewerage Corporation
(WSC) experts and officials,
including a hydrologist and
WSC’s area manager and
assistant general manager,
went to’ Grand Cay to
address the problem last
month and residents said the
smell-has vanished over the
last two weeks.

And although Mr Roberts

_ conceded the water is now

clear and odourless, he said
samples he had tested at the
Chela-Tech medical labora-
tory in Centreville, Nassau,
were found to contain
pseudomonas species — bac-
terium that occur in soil and
organic matter — making it
unfit for human consump-
tion.

However, Mr Neymour
questioned’ the integrity of
Mr Roberts’ samples yes-
terday, as he said they may

have been contaminated:

during transportation to
Nassau.
The minister also refuted

addressed concerns and
engaged the community.
“Mr Roberts again is rais-
ing unnecessary alarm and
a responsible politician

should not do so,” Mr Ney-.

mour said.

Since remedial work
began at the plant an expert
has been stationed there to
monitor the water quality,
and. proved a marked
improvement.

“They have been testing
the water and it has been
meeting international stan-

dards,” the minister assert- ,

ed.
However, the political
row has left some Grand
Cay residents uncertain

about the truth of their wel- |

fare, and chief councillor
George Russell took his
own water samples and sent
them for testing at a lab in

Freeport. He expects the |

results later this week.

“JT just wanted to know for
myself, so if people ask me,
I can say this is what it is
and be fair about it,” Mr
Russell said.

“As far as I’m concerned
the odour is not there any-
more, the WSC has been
responding, there has been

someone working on it, and _

it has improved.
. “It’s not like they’re
putting the phone down on

“So that’s going to be one

_ “But I feel there are much |

the water situation, like |

astray.”

Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham has yet to speak
out on the issue, and his
silence prompted criticism }
from the PLP chairman |
about his loyalty. to his con-
stituents. i

Mr Roberts has also |
called for Minister of Health

Jack Thompson, Director of Immigration, said: “The month
of January has-been a very busy month for us — we had a wave

of illegals entering the country. We have tried as best to return
these persons to their homes as quickly as possible.” '

Illegal immigrants repatriated last month include 365 Hait-
ian nationals and 61 Dominicans.

Mr Thompson added: “We try to repatriate smartly by
doing a few things, one is repatriating immediately from the
family islands as opposed to bringing them into New Provi-
dence. To overnight them, house them, feed them, all of that
creates additional cost so we try to do it as quickly as possible.”

With the “fear factor”

another “nightmarish” sum-
mer of power.cuts, the Aba-

president yesterday said he

“serious and genuine focus”
has been brought to bear on
ensuring a consistent power
supply is available to the
islands this year.

Michael Albury made this
statement as he outlined the

‘impact of months of daily
power outages in Abaco last
summer.

A “conservative” esti-
mate, said Mr Albury, was
that “$3- $4 million” in busi-
ness for Abaco companies
was lost, mainly due to the
decision by visitors to short-

islands.

The Bahamas operations
are “the model we want to
roll out across the ;
Caribbean”, Royal Bank of
Canada’s group head for
international banking told
Tribune Business yesterday,
adding that the bank would

be “very active over the next }

organic growth and expan-

James Westlake, who was
visiting the Bahamas yester-
day, said that while the inte-

gration of Royal Bank’s pre-

viously existing Caribbean

Bank of Trinidad & Tobago

hoped”, it had transformed

with members of the Government and senior
executives from all the regulatory bodies asso-
ciated with the financial services industry, and
to hear presentations from both domestic and
international speakers.

Now in its eighth year, the BFSB- Summit has become a key event in the local
calendar and continues to serve as an excellent
venue for industry stakeholders to meet and
share views on all matters impacting the
Bahamas’ financial services industry. -

Finance summit

The Bahamas Financial Services Board's
(BFSB) annual International Business &
Finance Summit (IBFS) has received high
marks from participants, and is critical in
helping the organisation advance its action
plan for the year ahead.

Wendy Warren, the BFSB’s chief execu-
tive and executive director, said: "The event
is evolving still, but we are quite pleased

- with the progress made since the inaugural
IBFS in 2010 and, in fact, the first ‘Retreat’

in 2004. The decision to target the focus of
the original annual Retreat to one of busi-
ness development and sustainable growth
permeated the entire event, with the closing
Roundtable crafting the Action Plan for
2011."

Ms Warren said the BFSB was grateful
for the collective input from domestic and
international participants, and the practical
insights they provided. Participants included

Brent Symonette, deputy prime minister.

and minister of foreign affairs; Senator John
Delaney, Attorney General and minister of

legal affairs; and Zhivargo Laing, minister of .

state for finance. Ryan Pinder MP repre-
sented the Official Opposition.

Also in attendance were the heads of the
regulatory bodies: Governor Wendy Craigg
of the Central Bank of the Bahamas; Philip
Stubbs, chairman of the Securities Com-
mission of the Bahamas; and Lennox
McCartney, Superintendent. of the Insur-
ance Commission of the Bahamas.

Other government officials joined with
private sector industry stakeholders and

international guests to make up the 140.

attendees at the annual event.

The agenda for IBFS 2011 was wide rang-
ing, and covered topics from the Global
Winds of Change, Taxation Developments
and Knowing Your Customer Essentials right
through to Business Insights and Future
Thinking for the Bahamian financial ser-
vices sector. Speakers also represented a
cross-section of industry experts hailing from
Brazil, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Mexico,
South Africa, the UK and the US - joining
with local expert resources.

The final day of IBFS had a distinct busi-

ness development focus, starting with an
overview of the industry and continuing
with targeted breakout sessions, where small
groups of attendees reviewed business and
enabling opportunities. The concluding

growth.

BISX-listed firm to.
expand plant 67%

Consolidated Water gets five-year extension to 2031 on Water & Sewerage Corporation
supply contract, as it moves to expand Blue Hills RO plant to 12m gallons per day

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

BISX-listed Consolidated Water yes-
‘terday confirmed earlier Tribune Busi-
‘ness revelations by announcing it had

signed a binding agreement with the
Water & Sewerage Corporation to
expand the production capacity of its
Blue Hills reverse osmosis plant by 67
per cent to 12 million gallons of water per
day, in addition to obtaining a five-year
extension to its supply contract.

‘In a statement issued yesterday, Con- ,

solidated Water said capacity at Blue
Hills would be expanded from the cur-
rent maximum of 7.2 million gallons per
day and, together with its other Nassau-
based plant, Windsor, would be able to
produce a combined 14.6 million gallons
‘of water per day.

With its supply contract with the Water
& Sewerage Corporation extended by a
further five years to 2031, thus enabling
~ it to likely recover the undisclosed invest-
ment cost associated with the expansion,
Consolidated Water said the move would

reduce dependence on more expensive |

water currently barged from Nassau.
Consolidated Water’s initial contract
was for a 20-year supply period.
"We are pleased to announce this
agreement with Water & Sewerage Cor-

poration. , which will allow the citizens
and businesses in Nassau and throughout
the entire island of New Providence to

sharply reduce their dependence upon

more expensive water that is currently
barged from Andros to port facilities at

Arawak Cay on New Providence Island," _

said Rick McTaggart, chief executive of

_ Consolidated Water.

"By expanding the Blue Hill plant,

Water & Sewerage Corporation should .

eliminate almost $7 million in capital
spending that would have been required
to relocate the present barging opera-
tion from Arawak Cay, and should
realise several million dollars in addi-
tional yearly cost,savings by replacing
barged water with locally produced
desalinated water.

Economics

“The economics of the Blue Hill facil-
ity, which is our largest plant and has
been delivering water to Water & Sew-
erage Corporation since 2006, should sig-
nificantly benefit from the expansion in
capacity and the 5-year extension of our
contract with Water & Sewerage Cor-
poration."

"We are very pleased that the
Bahamas government has once again

' selected Consolidated Water to provide

dence, and we appreciate their confi-

‘dence in our company to deliver this
’ expansion within the Government's very

tight schedule," said Mr McTaggart.

“The capacity expansion is scheduled
for completion in this year's fourth quar-
ter, following which the combined pro-
duction capacity of our Blue Hill and
Windsor plants in Nassau will approxi-
mate 14.6 million gallons per day.

The start of the $2.6 bil- —

Bahamas this year and going

Mr Rolle said the project

He said he expects “real
tangible. and identifiable
benefits” for the Bahamian
economy to stem from the
construction activity that will
take place at the site this
year, noting the demand for

services such as housing, -

said Mr Rolle.

Abaco’s ‘fear factor’ eases

FROM page 1B

Treasury was estimated by realtors to have
taken a “pretty staggering” hit to the tune of
$2-$3 million as a result of people who had -

committed to buying property “backing out” _

due to concerns over electricity supply avail-
. ability.

As President of the Chamber of Commerce
for Abaco, Mr Albury said he had of late ‘been
hearing numerous concerns from the business
community that mot enough was being done to
make sure the new Wilson City power plant
and related technical issues would be dealt
with in time to,ensure Abaco would not suffer
another summer of power problems.

The plant had been scheduled to come on.

stream in 2010, but has been set back, and to
date testing of the generators is ongoing.
Bidding is shortly set to begin on the instal-
lation of an upgraded transmission line capa-
ble of carrying the requisite amount of power
from the new plant to Abaco’s residents and
businesses. This line is now expected to be in
place by May 2010, something which Mr
Albury said suggests the issue may have been
“seriously overlooked” up until now.

The business community’s concern caused’

Mr Albury to contact the Minister of the Envi-
ronment, Earl Deveaux, who has responsibil-
ity for BEC, to let him know that “a serious sit-
uation” was evolving in Abaco, in which the
“public was on the verge of speaking out in a
group again” about their power concerns - an
apparent reference to the demonstration
staged against BEC in Abaco last summer.
Dr Deveaux traveled to Abaco on Friday
with BEC officials, and gave a presentation
to a group of business stakeholders about the
status of the power plant and transmission
line. Mr Albury said the meeting and Dr
Deveaux’s statement left him with the impres-
sion that the Minister is “seriously and gen-
uinely focused” on ensuring the islands do not
face the same problems they did last year.
The Minister outlined the status of genera-
tor testing efforts at the plant, the plans for the
transmission line upgrade, and gave assur-



ances that if necessary, power can still be sup-
plemented from the older power plants at

-Marsh Harbour and Sandy Point, Abaco, as

the “transition” to Wilson City takes place.
He said there will be “no shortage of power”
once the new power plant comes on stream.

“T think he has really grasped and emotion-
ally started to feel how this has affected the
economy of Abaco,” said Mr Albury. .

Despite this; Mr Albury said yesterday that
it appears.some summer business may have
already been lost for Abaco’s tourism industry
as discussions in online forums frequented by
repeat visitors have focused on the fact that the
power plant is not yet on line, and questions
continue to be asked by visitors about whether
the power supply will be improved by sum-
mer 2011.

“It’s too late to avoid some loss of busi-

ness,” said the Chamber president and owner
of the Conch Inn Hotel and Marina.

Recent power outages in Abaco, which came
about as a result of inadequate controls during
testing of the generators at the new plant, “got
people on edge” about its status and further
fuelled concerns among potential visitors who
are keen to know whether they should book an
Abaco vacation this year.

“That got everyone riled up. I think the fear
factor was pretty high, and I think it still is
high ‘until you see work being done on that
(transmission) cable,” said Mr Albury.

The Chamber president said Abaco is also
happy to have received an undertaking from
Dr Deveaux that there will be better commu-
nication from BEC officials about the status of
the Wilson City plant and power generation
going forward, with this also being deemed
key to ensuring that the islands can minimise
business losses going forward.

“When youre asked by your guests: ‘How is
the new plant coming on’ and you have to say:
‘Frankly, I.don’t really know’, that does not
inspire confidence.

“We want to be able to say: ‘Well the cable
has been ordered and the contractor’s name is
Mr Smith...’. If you know things are in progress
then people know at that point that it’s ofily a
matter of time...” said Mr Albury.

Detailing the investment
involved each time a branch

undertaken, Mr McDonald
said: “Every time we do a

pel sie e. That c wipe i is spent in the Bahamas
i: directly, and the rest is

lion, or 75 cents per share, a ! spread across the region.”

Mr McDonald told Tri-

bune Business that the new
Royal Bank location at
Prince Charles Drive was
“50 per cent or more larger
than the one across the Mall.
Every time we’re refreshing
them, we’re expanding
them, which speaks to the
kind of growth we’ve expe-
rienced in the Bahamas, and
the growth the Bahamas has
experienced”.

Nathaniel Beneby, Royal
Bank’s president and coun-
try head for the Bahamas,
said the Family Islands, too,
had befiefited from the
expansion of existing
branches, the Marsh Har-
bour location having grown
in size three-four times. He
and Mr McDonald hinted
that expansion plans were
in place for other Royal
Bank locations in the Fami-

ly Islands.

Mr Westlake, a member
of the group executive team

responsible for setting Roy- |

al Bank’s global strategic
direction, and head of its
international banking oper-
ations, told Tribune Busi-

‘ness that there was “no bet-

ter example than the
Bahamas” when it came to
refreshing and reinvigorat-

. ing the bank’s product offer-

ings/service delivery.

“The important thing is
that we continue to rein-
vest,” Mr Westlake said.
“Organisations that do not
continue to reinvest and
refresh find themselves in a
big hole that sometimes they
can’t get out of. There’s no
better example than in the

.Bahamas of that refresh-

ment, and as populations

you have to make sure you
are where the population
is.”

Mr Mc Donald, mean-
while, told Tribune Business
that “close to $200 million”
in foreign currency was
injected into the Bahamas
to boost Royal Bank of
Canada’s capital levels, fol-
lowing the decision by the
Toronto head office to con-
vert operations in this nation
from a branch to a sub-
sidiary structure in the wake

‘of the Royal Bank of

Trinidad and Tobago
(RBTT) acquisition (see |
other story on Page 1B).

“It was close to a $200
million injection of capital
into the subsidiary,” Mr
McDonald said, adding that
Royal Bank’s Bahamian
operations were still ulti-
mately owned by the Cana-
dian head office.

Mr Beneby, meanwhile,
noted the foreign exchange
reserve and system liquidity
benefits from the capital
injection. i

And, while Royal Bank of
Canada’s Bahamian opera-
tions had generated annual
multi-million dollar profits
over the years, in recent
times that income has large-
ly been staying in this coun-
try rather than being repa-
triated to Canada.

“We have not actually
taken any money out of this
economy in probably the
last four-five years, and
that’s including the FINCO
operation,” Mr McDonald
told Tribune Business.
“We’ve reinvested all that
‘money locally.”

Ross McDonald, senior vice-president of

? Caribbean banking for Royal Bank, told Tri-
: bune Business that RBTT’s Trinidad opera- —
? tions possessed many of the functions that the
? Bahamas did not, such as corporate treasury
? and product development.

“I don’t think of it as moving, but that said,

“We’ve not got it all under one manage-
ment structure, and are putting all the juris-
dictions on the same system, which will be
completed this year. We’re doing other things,
maybe a little slower than originally antici-
pated, but it’s going well and we’re pleased
with what’s going on.

“Whenever you do a deal, in some cases
you accept what you get from the other com-
pany. RBTT had an aggressive plan for rolling
out technology, and we found that in was not
doable when we looked at it.”

Anti-money laundering regulations had
again tightened across the Caribbean since
the RBTT deal closed in mid-2008, and Mr
Westlake added: “The world has changed a
lot since we did the deal with RBTT, and
things we thought we would not have to spend
a lot of time on, we have had to spend time
on. ”

Conversion

The conversion of Royal Bank’s Bahamian
operations into a subsidiary, from the previous
branch structure, was part of tidying up the.
institution’s, corporate network in the
Caribbean following the RBIT deal, Mr West-
lake explained.

Royal Bank had igoked at where it could
align operations under one regulatory struc-
ture/overseer, Mr Westlake said, and assessed
what was the best financial and tax structure
possible.

Mr McDonald told Tribune Business that
the acquisition of the bank’s Turks & Caicos
operations by the Bahamian subsidiary was
part of this ongoing restructuring, adding that
the former lacked the “scale” deemed neces- .
sary to run as a standalone.

Mr Westlake told Tribune Business that
while the Caribbean had been an “important
region” for Royal Bank prior to the RBTT
acquisition, it had transformed the institution
into a pan-regional player with a presence in 20
countries and 35 land masses, most of which
were in the Bahamas.

Going forward, Mr Westlake said Royal
Bank would look to “streamline” the prod-

ucts it had inherited from RBTT, improve cus-

tomer security, enhance efficiency and cus-
tomer delivery, and “get everyone operating
on one system”.

Looking long-term, he added: “We’re pret-
ty optimistic. We’re strong in the Caribbean
and are investing for the future. We’re very
bullish that the region will pick up, and think
we will see a lot of room to grow in the coun-
tries we’re in, and expansion opportunities in
the courtries where we’re not located. We
expect to be very active over the next few
years.”

Stalled Revel
casino set to
resume work,
open in 2012

WAYNE PARRY,
Associated Press
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J.

Reeling from four years of
cutthroat competition that has
stolen nearly a'third of its busi-
ness, Atlantic City on Tuesday
got the news it has long been
waiting for: the stalled $2 billion

- Revel casino project will

resume work next week and ~

will open m the summer of
2012.

Finishing Revel has long
been seen as the single biggest
move the nation's second-
largest gambling market could
do to fight back against region-
al casinos popping up all
around them, as well against as
the general sense that Atlantic
City's best days were behind it.

Gov. Chris Christie made the
announcement at a bill signing
ceremony in the atrium of the
half-finished casino, whose
exterior is done but whose inte-
rior is empty. The governor
signed a rescue package for
Atlantic City, setting up a state-
supervised tourism district with
better police protection and
sanitation, and relieving the
city's 11 casinos of some of the
strict regulation to which they
have long been subject.

"We are all standing at Rev- —

ning at the end of next week,

construction will begin again -

ments" from the project com-
mensurate with the extent of
state's financial participation.
Revel will share 20 percent of
its profits with the state, up to a
maximum of $261 million.
"When Revel is the success I
know it will be, the taxpayers of
the state of New Jersey will par-
ticipate in the success of it,"

‘Christie said. "The state of New

Jersey is now 20 percent part-
ners with Kevin DeSanctis on
the upside" of the project.

A spokesman said after the
news conference that the state
will not hold an ownership
interest, and has "no downside
risk." ; :

DeSanctis said a scaled-down
version of Revel will open with
1,100 hotel rooms, down from
the 1,900 originally envisioned.
He said he still intends to build
the remaining 800 rooms at
some point in the future.

When fully operational, Rev-
el will employ 5,500 people. It
will generate about 1,500 con-
struction jobs, providing a
much-needed boost for the
southern New Jersey economy.

Toyota offering buyouts to

“cut salariec

DETROIT

Toyota is offering buyout packages to cut the
management staff at its U.S: sales headquarters
in California, the company said Tuesday.

The announcement is not tied to a small
sales drop last year or a spate of safety recalls
that have hurt the Japanese automaker.

Offers were made to 629 people in the Toy-
ota Motor Sales U.S.A. customer services and
automotive operations groups, mainly at the
headquarters in Torrance, California,
spokesman Steve Curtis said. Toyota Motor
Sales U.S.A. employs about 6,100 people.

The buyouts are voluntary and the company
has no target number to reach, Curtis said.

Toyota was the only major automaker to
see a USS. sales drop last. year, just under 1
percent. Sales rebounded in last month and
were up 17 percent over January of 2010, a





month in which. the company was forced to .

temporarily stop selling eight models because

of defective gas pedals.

Toyota's once-invincible image has been
’ hurt by a spate of recalls that began late in
2009, mostly in North America. The recalls
now cover more than 12 million cars and trucks
worldwide. Many of the recalls involve defec-
tive floor mats and gas pedals that get stuck,
some of them suspected of causing unintend-

ed acceleration. ’

But Curtis said the buyouts are not a cost-
cutting move due to the sales decline or the
recalls. "We are very optimistic for the year,"
Curtis said, adding that the company plans to
roll out 10 new or redesigned models in 2011.
"This is the result of an ongoing review of our

and how we best align them to meet our future

business prospects and growth," he said.
The move, first reported Tuesday by the
. trade publication Automotive News, will add °
- responsibility to the remaining managers and
improve efficiency, Curtis said. .
Workers are being offered a $20,000 pay-
ment, two weeks of pay for each year of ser-

vice, plus another 10 weeks of salary, Toyota

said in a statément.
They have to decide on the package by
March 31 and leave the company on April 28.
Curtis said he could not comment on
whether buyouts will be offered in other areas
of the company.

Senator's propose rigid spending cap

ANDREW TAYLOR,
Associated Press
WASHINGTON

Social Security, Medicare
and virtually every other fed-
eral program would face the
budget ax under legislation
unveiled Tuesday aimed at
forcing Congress to dramati-
cally cut spending over the
coming decade. The bill, co-
sponsored by Sens. Claire
McCaskill, D-Mo., and Bob
Corker, R-Tenn., would phase
in a federal spending cap of just
more than 20 percent of the size
of the economy, which they said
would wring almost $8 trillion
from the budget over the com-
ing 10 yearsedit.

Cuts of that magnitude
would have to fall heavily on
Social Security and Medicare,
the retirement programs whose
costs are being driven sky-high



by the retirement of the baby
boom generation.

The legislation doesn't actu-
ally propose cuts but instead
sets spending caps and enforces
them with the threat of auto-
matic, across-the-board reduc-
tions. The idea is that the threat
of such a meat-ax approach
would force lawmakers to make
more thoughtful cuts.

Corker said the measure is a
"legislative straightjacket, a way
of forcing Congress to dramat-
ically cut spending."

The target of 20.6 percent of
gross domestic product is the
average of federal spending
over 1970-2008.

A recent Congressional Bud-
get Office report projects
spending under current policies
reaching 24 percent of GDP,
which would require more than
$800 billion in budget cuts in
that year alone.

That is significantly deeper
than the recent proposal by
President Barack Obama's
deficit commission, which rec-
ommended raising Social Secu-
rity and Medicare retirement
ages, and cutting military pen-
sions, farm subsidies and a vari-
ety of other popular programs.
The Senate proposal sparked
an immediate uproar among
liberals who said it would force
draconian cuts in Medicare,
Social Security, the Medicaid
health care system for the poor
and disabled, and a host of oth-
er programs. They said it
ignores fundamental changes
in the country like the aging of
the population, greater-than-
inflation increases in health
care costs, and relatively recent
decisions to boost spending for
homeland security, veterans
and a prescription drug plan
within Medicare.

But just as big is the psycho-
logical boost that completion
of Revel will provide for

Atlantic City. Work began on -

the casino in 2007 before the

national recession hit and cred-"

it markets dried up. Revel ran
out of money in January 2009,
and stopped work on the inte-
rior. Wall Street giant Morgan
Stanley, the project's major
backer, pulled out in April
2010, deciding it was better to
“take a nearly $1 billion loss on
the project than see it through
to completion.

"It's extremely important

psychologically for the city,’
Christie said. "When the pro-

ject stopped, it was a real down--

er. It led to all sorts of bad con-
clusions about this place."
Nothing about Revel has
come easily. Six months before
its developers ran out of mon-
ey, and interior construction
slammed to a halt, three key
executives working on the pro-
ject died in a plane crash in

Minnesota. The city's casino’

service workers union cam-
paigned against a $350 million

The move put the rating solidly in

the National Bank of Egypt.

relatively stable because of solid

The sense of panic that

gripped markets at the end of -
-Jast and the beginning of this...
‘year has abated.in recent,

weeks, as EU officials have
raised expectations for a
"comprehensive solution" to
the currency union's debt cri-
Sis.

The renewed optimism has
been most evident in the per-
formance of the euro, which
has risen around 10 cents.
since the. middle of January
to around $1.38.

And though yields, or inter-
est rates, on bonds from coun-
tries like Greece, Ireland, Por-
tugal and Spain remain high,
the European Central Bank

felt confident enough to halt
its bond purchases last week,
a key lifeline that helped calm
bond market jitters.

Though the debt crisis has
fallen out of the headlines in
recent weeks, it still is a long
way from being solved.

"When you look at sover-
eign (bond) spreads com-

pared to Germany nothing
- has changed," said Zsolt Dar-

vas,'a research fellow at Brus-
sels-based think tank Bruegel.

Investors have taken a
"wait-and-see attitude" on the
comprehensive package
promised by Brussels, said
Darvas, and whether govern-
ments are willing to take the
lid of the problems that have
haunted the region since the
collapse of Lehman Brothers

in 2008.

Proposals

There are a number of pro-

sposals. being discussed. The
‘ EU's executive Commission
‘wants’ governments to boost
“the°size’and powers of the

eurozone's contribution to the
bailout fund, the so-called
European Financial Stability
Facility.

In addition to raising the
EFSF's lending capacity to
the promised euro440 billion,
there are discussions to allow
the EFSF to buy back bonds
directly in the markets — as
the ECB has been doing —
and reduce the interest pay-
ments that bailed-out coun-
tries have to pay for their
loans.

The Commission has also
suggested allowing Greece
and other financially troubled
countries to use EFSF money
to buy back their own bonds
on the open market or from
the ECB, which could reduce
their overall debt obligations.

Germany has so far been
reluctant to put up more mon-
ey and ease the burden on

bailed-out countries, fearing:

that they will fall back into
their old spending habits.

In return, the eurozone’s
biggest economy wants all
euro states to sign up to tough
measures to boost their com-
petitiveness and cut spending.

Among the key points in
German Chancellor Angela
Merkel's package are
demands to raise retirement

_ ages in line with life expectan-
cy, stop automatically increas-

ing wages in line with infla-
tion, introduce automatic
"debt brakes" in national leg-
islation, and find a common
base for corporate taxation.

The demands — set to face
fierce opposition from many
countries and parliaments —
are set to be discussed at a
meeting of EU leaders in
Brussels this Friday, although
EU officials have said that
decisions are unlikely before
March.

Though such proposals

have given the euro much-
needed respite, there are
many analysts who think that
they will not be able to stop
Europe's debt crisis from
worsening, especially as many
countries face years of tepid
growth as governments con-

tinue to slash spending and
raise taxes to get public
finances into shape.

A particular worry is
Spain's troubled savings

' banks — the so-called cajas.

They are widely identified
as a key source of concern
that the government might

‘have to bail them out, which

would seriously strain state
finances.

Two major Spanish dailies
said Tuesday they are saddled
with around euro90 billion
($123 billion) in shaky real
estate loans.

It was a burdensome bank
bailout that drove Ireland to
seek an international bailout
last year.

Last week the Spanish gov-
ernment said it was raising the
capital reserve requirements
for banks in general and will
be even tougher with the
cajas, who could face partial
nationalization later this year.
They have already been
forced to restructure in a gov-
ernment-mandated merger
process that reduced their
number from 45 to 17.

The government has said
the cajas will need no more
than euro20 billion in new
capital to meet the new
requirements but some ana-
lysts think that estimate is too
low.

So far at least two major
Spanish savings banks or
groups, La Caixa and one led
by Caja Madrid, have said

_ they plan to create full-blown

commercial banks so they can

_lure capital and raise their

capital ratios.

Ireland's parliament was dissolved Tuesday for a long-awaited
Feb. 25 election as Prime Minister Brian Cowen exited the polit-
ical stage defending his management of the nation's plunge toward
bankruptcy.

Cowen declared a formal end to his government two months
after he was forced to negotiate a euro67.5 billion ($92 billion) loan
package from the European Union and International Monetary
Fund, a measure he had insisted Ireland did not need.

Cowen told a silent, somber parliament that his 2 1/2 years as
prime minister "have been a time of great trial and test. I believe
we have worked hard to correct past failures and to secure the
future recovery of our country."

At the end, only lawmakers from his long-ruling Fianna Fail par-
ty — expected to suffer a battering of historic proportions in the
Feb. 25 vote — stood to applaud him.

Cowen agreed to an early election, rather than trying to serve his
full term to mid-2012, after suffering a string of humiliations and
losing his parliamentary majority last month.

On Monday, Cowen, 51, announced his retirement from politics
after a 26-year career. He became Ireland's first sitting prime
minister not to seek re-election to parliament.

Twenty of Fianna Fail's other current lawmakers have taken the
same decision, fueling speculation that the party — which means

‘soldiers of destiny" in Gaelic and has won the most seats. in
every election since 1932 — faces an unprecedented defeat Feb. 25.

Recent polls have rated Cowen as the most unpopular leader
since Ireland won independence from Britain in 1922; he's leaving
office with an 8 percent approval rating. Last week he was forced
to resign as Fianna Fail leader to help boost the party's election
prospects.

The most likely victors, opposition parties Fine Gael and Labour,
are publicly committed to renegotiating terms of the EU-IMF
rescue and Ireland's commitment to insure its banks against
defaults, the policy that exposed the nation to potential insolven-
cy.

Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny decried Cowen's government as
“the worst in the history of the state." And Labour leader Eamon
Gilmore said his party was determined to overturn Fianna Fail deci-
sions "that brought down our country, that tied our state to the
sinking and stinking misfortunes of the banks, and that sold us out

- in the deal with the EU and IMF."

Cowen said the winners of the election would wield the power

to continue his government's policies of bank bailouts and deep
austerity measures — and warned that taking any other course
would lead to even greater economic disaster.

"This election will define our economic future. It will decide
whether Ireland moves forward from this recession, or whether we
prolong it or mdeed succumb to it," he said.

Ireland's economy boomed from 1994 to 2007 on the back of
heavy foreign investment and a homegrown property bubble. But
Irish banks borrowed recklessly on international markets and
loaned heavily to construction barons in Ireland, Britain and the
United States.

Builders began work on
fewer projects in 2010

MARTIN CRUTSINGER,
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON

Builders began work on few-
er homes, shopping centers and
other projects in 2010, pushing
total building activity down to
the lowest point in a decade.

Construction spending
dropped 10.3 percent last year,

‘marking the fourth annual
decline, the Commerce Depart-
ment said Tuesday. It fell to
$814.18 billion in 2010, the low-
est level since-2000.

And the year ended on a
weak note. Builders started
fewer homes and other projects
in December, pushing activity
down 2.5 percent for the
month.

Builders have struggled with
falling demand since the hous-
ing bubble burst, triggering a
deep recession. The downturn
sharply lowered overall eco-
nomic activity and that cut into
demand for office buildings,
hotels and shopping centers.

Analysts said harsh winter
weather had some impact on
the weak December numbers.
But other factors are likely to
keep the industry from seeing
significant gains in the early
months of this year.

Homebuilders are having a
hard time competing with the
record number of foreclosures
and declining home prices. The
budget crises at the state and
local level, along with fading
federal stimulus money, have
governments pulling back on
projects. Rising vacancy rates
and. declining rents are drag-
ging on commercial real estate
construction.

Wyss said. "And on the non-

you get the jobs back."

For 2010, home construction

METALS RISE ON BRIGHTER ECONOMIC OUTLOOK

_CHRISTOPHER LEONARD,
: AP Business Writer

Prices for industrial metals like copper rose as a brightening glob-

al economic outlook raised expectations for higher demand from
: the manufacturing sector.

Strong corporate earnings and rising stock indexes seemed to

i convince investors that demand will strengthen in coming months
; for metals such as palladium, used in auto parts and other manu-
? factured goods.

While the economic news is still far from glowing, a ‘moderate

; uptick in auto sales reported Tuesday was enough to stoke opti-
: mism that auto factories will be'placing more orders for palladium
: and platinum this year, said James Steel an analyst with HSBC in
: New York. Automakers reported arise in U.S. car and truck sales
; in January, with General Motors Co. reporting a 23 percent
: increase and Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc. reporting a 17.3 per-
: cent increase compared to last year.

While the results weren't spectacular, they pointed toward

: improvement through the year, Steel said.

"The trajectory is still upward," Steel said. At the same time,

strong corporate earnings reports bolitered metal prices as well as
i stock prices. The Dow Jones et 24 Average gained over 148

0.16. The Nasdaq and the

April platinum rose $32.10 to $1,833.00 an ounce, while March

palladium gained $3.45 to $823.55 an ounce. Copper for March
: delivery rose 8.85 cents to settle at $4.5470 a pound.

Precious metals also rose. Goldfor April delivery gained $5.80

i to close at $1,340.30 an ounce, while silver for March delivery
: rose 34.5 cents to settle at $28.514 an ounce.

Benchmark oil for April delivery lost\$1.42 to settle.at $90.77 a

: line gained 1.93 cents to settle at $2.5194 a gallon.

While Egypt is not a major oil producer, it controls the Suez

:; Canal, which is a key shipping route for oii tankers to Europe and

IF YOU want to hear Elton

apparently have to buy a movie
ticket.

The soundtrack version of "Hel-

for Buena Vista Records con-

and wouldn't be released on radio.

because your movie just won.

Many award-season pundits say

"The King's Speech" is now the

front-runner for best picture at the —

England. Their collaboration could
end up on her upcoming album,
"Born This Way," though it's
unlikely because the duo aren't
labelmates. A spokesman for Inter-
scope, Lady Gaga's label, declined
to comment.

Lady Gaga is expected to per-

Hooper, an Oscar nominee for

the Academy Awards a family affair.

"I'm trying to get tickets for my

mum, my dad, my brother and my
sister, but (it hasn't) worked," he
said. "They won't tell us whether
they've got space. So my main Oscar

"Ultimately, what's the biggest

Eninem, Jay-Z set to go heatl-to-

head at this year’s Grammy Awards

when the entertainment
industry crowns its kings
and queens of music — the
53rd Grammy Awards.

The award ceremony will be held
on February 13 in Los Angeles and
performers are expected to include
current Grammy nominees Arcade
Fire, Eminem, Cee Lo Green, Lady
Gaga, Miranda Lambert, and Katy
Perry.

One of the battles to watch will be
that between rap superstars Eninem
and Jay-Z.

While Eninem leads the pack with 10
nods, Jay-Z has secured six nomina-
tions. The two will face off in four cat-
egories: Record of Year; Best Rap
Album; Best Rap Song, and Best
Rap/Sung Collaboration.

And a8 always there is drama leading
up the awards show. Representatives
for Grammy nominee Chris Brown
’ yesterday denied reports that the star's
lawyers requested that a restraining
against him be lifted. for the awards
ceremony so he can attend the event at
the same time as his ex-girlfriend and
fellow nominee Rihanna.

Brown’s publicist told TMZ.com that
he will be not attending the Graminys
due to scheduling conflicts.

Another hot topic leading up to the
awards'is the question of the opening
act. While some sources claim it will be
Eninem, who is coming off a very suc-
cessful year with his new album
“Recovery”, others are still holding
out for the pop princess herself, Britney
Spears, to relaunch her music career
with a performance from the Gram-
my stage.

Up until yesterday there was no offi-
. cial word on the possibility of Britney
being the surprise opening act.

What is official, however, are the
nominees for 2011. Below are those
nominated in some of the most antici-
pated categories:

Reggae artist Vybz Kartel is
experiencing backlash from fans
all over the Caribbean for
bleaching his skin in an attempt

to change his appearance.

FULL OF : : ‘ :
COLOUR: n a recent interview with a
Photo of Vybz local Caribbean television sta-
Kartel hefere tion the artist said that it is
he began the ‘‘cake soap’ — which also hap-

‘alin ‘bleach: pens to be the title of one of his

ing’ process. his complexion.

In Ya Ear spoke to some ‘of
Vybz Kartel’s Bahamian fans who
said they are very disappointed. with
the star’s decision to change his looks
in this way.

CHANGING ROLES

“T do not know why someone would
actually do that to themselves. It has
been a while since he did anything to
change his physical appearance. I think
he is trying to be the Michael Jackson
of reggae. In a way I think he is trying
to crossover in the international mar-
ket and I think he is trying to look
appealing,” said one fan who wished to
remain unnamed.

“A lot of people from where he is
like to bleach their skin and I think
because he is now endorsing this new
cake soap he wants to show people
that it works,” the fan said.

Fashion for a Cause: founder
-Kendrick Kemp had this to say about
Kartel’s bleaching: “I think black
people are beautiful and strong indi-
‘ viduals, and maybe he doesn't view
it this way and wants to express

himself by changing his colour.

‘We live in a world where
everything is at our finger tips
and a land of options, so I guess
he wanted to show persons
how one can change the

colour of their skin when-
ever they desire to do so.”

When asked if he
believes the artist is only

; . using cake soap to achieve

a lighter complexion, Mr
Kemp said: “No, this dude

is going the full nine yards, it

actually looks like he soaks in

some chemical product because

I don't really see any dark areas, at
least in some of his photos.”

Candy Moore said in her opinion
no one'should ever do what Vybz Kar-

Another fan who shared her views
on the matter with In Ya Ear was Kay-

Also taking a stance on the issue,
Vybz Kartel fan Shanny Duncombe
said: “Him and Sammi Sosa and other
people who bleacu are a disgrace to all
black people.” ;

INFLUENCE

Jacklyn Frazer said the only thing
she hopes is that others are not influ-
enced by the actions of this: dancehall
artist. :

“Hopefully they’re wise enough not
to follow that trend although bleaching
is nothing new and people do it all the

. time,” she said.

Responding to the controversy, Vybz
Kartel sent this statement to Vibe. com
last week:

“T’m my own man, and as such I do
my own thing. When black women stop
straightening their hair and wearing
wigs and weaves, when white women
stop getting lip and butt injections and
implants, when bald men stop getting
hair transplants, and when people stop
getting nose jobs and cosmetic surgery
then I’ll stop using the ‘cake soap’ and
we'll all live naturally ever after.”

TTOO designs can dance from Bibli-
cal symbols to tribal art, from celebri-
ty faces to fancy floral patterns —

almost any design a person can envision,

they can have it immortalised on their skin.

For most people, a tattoo is something deeply per-
sonal, a representation of a specific aspect of their
personality or a meaningful moment in their life;
for others, it is an excellent fashion statement.

It is'a much easier task to decide on the design of
your tattoo when you are sure about the reason for
it.

Permanent body art and tattoos have been around
for centuries, but in recent years both have experi-
enced'a renewed boost.

In ‘an interview with Tribune Art, tattoo artist Lisa
Roberts of Timeless Tattoo explained that she’s
been tattooing since 1996.

Her interest in the art of tattooing comes from
being. around her brother, Cecil, and hanging around
the studio, she said.

“IT saw all of the interesting designs and the people
he met and that is when I decided to join him in his
venture of body art.”

Lisa said her brother taught her the basics, after

which she went on to perfect her'skills in Maryland,

working under the world renowned tattoo artist
Mouse Massimiano from Main Street Tattoo, now
called Pancho Tattoo, and several other greats in
the business.

“I started tattooing at the age ‘at 27 and my broth-
er and J are in partnership together at Timeless Tat-

- too. I plan on tattooing as long as the good Lord .

gives me the strength and good health to continue
this wonderful art,” she said.

Speaking about. her first experience in tattooing,
she said: “My first tattoo that I did when I came
home was great, it was something I’ll never forget
about; BEC had an island-wide blackout ‘halfway
through the tattoo. I have also tattooed celebrities,
NBA players, musicians, and even royalty ”

. “The unexpected thing I learned about tattooing is
lots of patience. Timeless Tattoo has been in business
since 1994 and my brother came up with the name,
the meaning of the name is eternal and immortal
and it is what a.tattoo should mean to the person
wearing it.”

When asked about the craziest tattoo mG has done,
Lisa said: “I pos t Th Sacto any a the tattoo art

QC Comets win their
first BAISS pennant

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

ueen’s College Comets
junior boys capped a
“Cinderella” perfect reg-
ular season on the eve of

the playoTfs with a hard fought 74-58.

victory yesterday over the Jordan. ‘}

Prince Williams Falcons. :

The home win completed. for the
Comets’ 11-0 record that gave
Queen’s College their first Bahamas
Association of Independent Sec-
ondary Schools pennant.

They join the Comets’ senior girls,
who also finished on top of the stand-
ings with a perfect 7-0 record, heading
into the sudden death playoffs that
are slated to open today at the Kendal
Isaacs Gymnasium.

“It was a very good game. Prince
Williams is a well coached team, so it
was a good game all around,” said
Comets’ coach Dwayne Smith after
he got dosed with the water in the
cooler after the game.

Smith said they will definitely cher-
ish their achievement, but they’re not
going to rest on their laurels because
they have to come right back for
today’s playoffs.

Incidentally, the two teams will
clash in the sudden death playoff
today as Jordan Prince Williams fin-

ished in fourth place at 8-3 in the:

three-way battle for second through
fourth.

In the other game played at the
Charles W Saunders High School, the
Cougars held off the St Augustine’s
College Big Red Machine for a 55-51
decision.

The Cougars and the Big Red
Machine will meet in the second ver-
sus third place finishers Thursday after
Charles W Saunders clinched the sec-
ond spot by virtue of beating St
Augustine’s College.

Although they also finished tied at
8-3, the Big Red Machine won 78-75
over the Falcons at St Augustine’s
College Monday.

Jordan Prince Williams’ coach Hor-
atio ‘Yellow’ Poitier blamed his 16-
point loss to Queen’s College to his
own mistakes.

“At the beginning, my players were
tired, having played back-to-back





SHOOTER: Tyrone Burrows can be seen in this file photo.

games,” Poitier said. “I did not under-
stand the concept that fatigue would
play such a big role in this game.

“W C played a good game. Their

coach did an excellent job with them.
My problem was preparation. I should
have allowed my boys to sit down this
morning to keep them calm and

relaxed.”
_. Despite the fact that they will have
to bounce right back today and play
again, Poitier.said he’s not too con-
cerned because “one. thing my team
has is heart.”

“We were down by more than 10
points in the third quarter and we still

managed to come back and tie the —

game. The fight is in us, so I think we
will be all right.” .

Daejour Adderley and Tyrone Bur-
rows stepped it up as they helped the
Comets to break away from a 50-50 tie
at the end of the third to blow the
game open on a'12-0 run for a 62-50
advantage to'start the fourth quarter.

Adderley connected on nine of his
game high 24 points and Burrows con-
tributed eight of his 17 in the fourth.
Gerrio Rahming added nine and, after
experiencing some cramping prob-
lems-at the start of the game, Obi
McKenzie came back to assist with
three.

The Falcons also had their prob-
lems as Rashad Rolle cramped up
throughout the game. Trailing 70-58,
he had to be lifted off the court when
his muscles tightened up.

Rolle finished with 14, but it was
Waymond Demeritte who was red hot
in the second half. Demeritte had a
side high 21 points, including 12 in
the: third and seven in the fourth to
keep Jordan Prince Williams in the
game. Oatman Lightbourne had 15.

The Falcons led just once in the
game when they opened a 4-0 lead in
the first quarter. But that was short
lived as the Comets rebounded to
surge ahead 8-5.

Queen’s College went on to extend
their lead to 15-7 at the break, but
they slowly pulled away in the sec-
ond to surge ahead 35-25 at the half as
Adderley and Burrows led the charge
with eight and six points respectively.

Although they went ahead 45-34
early in the third, Jordan Prince
Williams didn’t give up. The combo of

' Demeritte, Rolle and Lightbourne

canned some big shots for a 45-45 tie
before it ended up 50-50 at the final
break.

But to start the fourth, the Comets
went on a roll thanks to consecutive
baskets from McKenzie, Adderley
and Burrows as they went up 57-50
and they never looked back.

‘Unfinished business’ in Boil Fish Bowl

By RENALDO DORSETT
Sports Reporter
rdorsett@tribunemedia.net

THE 2011 Boil Fish Bowl
has been dubbed unfinished
_business and, with much bad
blood between the game’s
opponents, the stage is set for
an epic championship finish
on the gridiron this weekend.

The Commonwealth Amer-
ican Football League’s
(CAFL) championship finale
between the Orry J Sands
Pros and the John Bull Jets
is slated to kick off 1:30pm
February 5 at the D W Davis
playing field.

At the league’s media day
hosted at the site of the cham-

players offered their predic-
tions on the game's outcome
while throwing verbal jabs at
their opponents.

"My prediction, Jets - 40,

Tito Bethel, "It's all about
business right now, this has
been more than two years in

the making and it’s time to:

finally get out there on the

es."

be decided by which team

“executes better on the field.

"The game will be a
blowout," he said. "There has
been a lot of talk, but that's all
it is, just talk. The team that is
better prepared and comes
out and executes better."

Veteran receiver and tight
end Reggie Knowles offered
another lopsided prediction.

"The score, 30-14. I'll give
them about two touchdowns
just because of Mike Foster
and what he can do and what
he thinks of on the offensive
side of the ball," he said. "As
you know, the controversy
with us last year started when
we had to attend the wedding
of a teammate so since then
the Pros have been saying
that we are their brides. Well,
Saturday there will be a wed-
ding out here on.D W Davis
field and they will be our
women."

The Pros were represented

by just one player on media

day, O'Neil Pratt, who said
fans should expect another
Pros repeat despite the confi-
dent words of the Jets players.

"I heard a lot of pretty
words today, but words won't
get anything done on the
field. They have a lot of con-
fidence but we know how to
step on confidence and kill
it," he said. “Whether we win
by six, seven, or 37, expect the
Pros to be back on top as
champions again."

A championship game,

"

over two seasons in the mak-
ing, will finally be decided on
the field by the league's top
teams over the last few sea-
sons.

The Jets have dominated
the regular season matchup
over the past two years,

including sweeping both.

National Basketball Association HIGHLIGHTS

OPEN SHOT: Nuggets small forward Carmelo Anthony shoots over New Jersey
Nets’ point guard Devin:Harris in the fourth quarter of Monday’s game in
Newark, us J. Anthony: led all scorers with 37 points. The Nets won the game 115-
99. ;



By BRIAN MAHONEY
AP Basketball Writer

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New

Ez Jersey Nets are apparently in Carme-

lo Anthony's past.

As for the future, is it New York?
Denver? Another team?

"I don't know. I really don't know,"
Anthony said Monday night.

What he can say is that he was will-
ing to meet with the Nets manage-
ment about a deal. He still won't
reveal whether he would have agreed
to actually play for them.

"I would take that meeting. As far

as anything else, I really can't speak
on that," Anthony said.
_ Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov
pulled his-team out-of trade discus-
sions with the Denver Nuggets before
it ever got to that point. Though he
said it was because he was unhappy
with the way the talks had gone, there
were reports it was because the Nets
knew Anthony would have refused to
sign a long-term extension that would
have been a prerequisite for New Jer-
sey to go through with the deal.

"I really don't know where that

came from, as far as if I was to come |

here the extension wasn't going to be
signed. I really don't know who start-
ed that," Anthony said. "There's a lot

- of things that are being said out there

that I don't know where they came
from. Sources, I guess. As far as the
extension, if that trade were to go
through, who knows what would've
happened. I can't really answer that."

So for now Anthony remains with
the Nuggets, who lost 115-99 to the
Nets in their first meeting since trade

talks collapsed for the second time”

thisseason. 14
Anthony said he doesn't know how
much longer he'll be with the Nuggets

_— or even if he'll ever leave. But he

said he hasn't spoken recently with
general manager Masai Ujiri.and team

president Josh Kroenke, who have to
decide if they want to move their
superstar before the February 24 trade
deadline or deal. with this situation
straight into the offseason.

"When something starts brewing,
or something starts going on, then I'm
pretty sure Masai and Josh will come
to me and let me know what's going
on," Anthony said.

Before the game, coach George
Karl said he still believes he might be
coaching Anthony allseason. ~

"I've always felt from the very

_ beginning of the season that the

chance of that happening was greater
than all you all thought," Karl said. "I
just felt that way from the first day of
training camp, from September, I've
always felt that way."

Asked his basis for that belief, Karl
said: "Just my experiences in the
NBA. Just making a big trade in the
middle of the season is not an easy
thing to do."

The Nuggets and Nets have tried
twice, but both multi-team deals fell
apart. It was after the most recent
one, which also would have involved
the Detroit Pistons, that Prokhorov
instructed his management to call off
their pursuit of the All-Star forward.

New Jersey had been willing to
offer an attractive package to the
Nuggets, including No. 3 overall pick
Derrick Favors, point guard Devin
Harris and multiple first-round draft
picks. Denver may not find another
offer that good and instead may opt to
just hold onto Anthony, who would
then have to decide if he wanted to

- risk free agency next summer when a
new collective bargaining apIeeMient

could cost'him millions.
“"The CBA is in the ‘back of my

mind, but as far as being afraid to play
this out, I'm not," Anthony said. "If

that's what it's going to take, then so

be it. I'm with that."

But the risk could be substantial.

He is under contract for about $18.5
million next season, and the three-
year extension worth about $65 mil-
lion that Denver has offered him
would kick in starting with the 2012-13
season, meaning he'd be scheduled to
earn about $83.5 million if he signs
this season.

Owners are seeking to slash con-
tract values and lengths, as well as
guarantees. Should they get their wish-
es and Anthony were to leave for New
York, his reported preference, he
could be looking at a maximum three-
year deal worth perhaps less than $40
million.

"If I sit here and tell you I'm willing
to lose $15 to $20 million, then I'd be
lying to you. But at the same time,
this has never been about money,”
Anthony said. "In my career so far I
think I'd have made enough money

that I can focus on just trying to win a

championship. That's the only thing
that's on my plate and on my mind
right now."

The Nets hoped he would think he
could do it in Brooklyn, where Antho-
ny was born and where they are
scheduled to move in the summer of
2012. The Nets posted three pictures
of their Barclays Center in the hall-
ways of the Prudential Center, one to
show that they've broken ground in
their new home and two that demon-
strate what the finished product will
look like.

"That was interesting," an amused

‘Anthony said.

He insists he's not thinking about
where he'll be playing on February
25 or next season, and he had no trou-
ble focusing on basketball Monday,
when he scored 37 points while being
booed every time he touched the ball
in the early going.

"He's our foundation, he's our

--horse and we're having a damn good

year, so he should be given a lot of.
credit for that," Karl said.

Associated Press

LONDON (AP) — Laurent Koscielny head-
ed a second-half winner as Arsenal came from a
goal down to beat Everton 2-1 on Tuesday and
keep the Gunners firmly in the Premier League
title race.

Everton striker Louis Saha opened the scoring
in the 24th minute with a contentious goal, after
Seamus Coleman threaded a ball behind Arse-
nal's defense.

TV replays indicated that Saha was standing at
least a meter offside before he supplied the fin-
ish. However, the goal was allowed to stand as
the ball had come off Koscielny as the defender
tried to clear, before it reached Saha. ,

Two goals in the space of six minutes turned
the game around, though, for the home side.

Andrei Arshavin equalized in the 70th when
captain Cesc Fabregas floated a ball toward the
area. Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell's back-

-header landed in the path of the Russian and he

fired past Tim Howard.

whipped in a corner, with the center back rising
above the Everton defense to head past Howard.

Rodwell nearly scored an equalizer in the
83rd, but his header from a corner flashed just
wide of the far post.

The openings stages of the first half lacked
rhythm, but Arsenal was starting to gain a
foothold in the match right before Saha's goal.
Arsenal nearly scored in the 16th when Van
Persie's clever back heel while running away
from goal inside the area found Fabregas, but the’
captain shot wide.

Theo Walcott was through on goal in the 22nd,
but his shot from close range was saved by
Howard with his feet.

Arsenal began the second half with more a
cutting edge; Tomas Rosicky, Van Persie and
Abou Diaby all coming close. But with the fin-
ishing lacking precision, Everton appeared to,
be on the brink of its first away win against Arse-
nal since a 2-1 victory at Highbury in 1996.

Arshavin and Koscielny changed that to send
Everton to only its second defeat since Novem-
ber. Arsenal remains in second place, five points

MANCHESTER, England

The win equaled United's

verge of making
Copa de Rey final

MADRID (AP) — Barcelona and
Real Madrid are on the verge of meeting
in the Copa del Rey final for the first
time in 21 years.

Both teams head into the return leg of
the semifinals Wednesday holding the

_ advantage. Record 25-time champion

Barcelona leads Almeria 5-0 before
Wednesday's game, and Madrid won 1-
0 at defending champion Sevilla.

The domestic cup competition could
be Madrid coach Jose Mourinho's only
chance to win silverware this season and
the club's first return to the final since
2004. That would be welcome news after
Madrid dropped seven points behind
leader Barcelona in the league.

"The team is in good shape, motivated
to get to the final," Mourinho said Tues-

day. "It's been many years since Madrid

reached it. We're one game away from
reaching it. It won't be easy but we want
to get to the final."

Madrid, which has won all 16 games
played at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadi-
um this season, hasn't won any trophy
for more than two seasons. It won its
17th — and last — Copa del Rey in 1993.

_Mourinho left midfielders Fernando
Gago, Sergio Canales and Pedro Leon
out of the squad, while the team is like-
ly to be without defender Pepe, who is
nearly recovered from a leg injury.

Newly signed striker Emmanuel Ade-
bayor is almost certain to play after mak-
_ ing his debut as a substitute in Sunday's
' 1-0 league loss at Osasuna, a defeat that
has made Madrid's bid for a first league
trophy since 2008 even more challenging.

"January was a difficult month with
us having played nine games and while
there are players who are used to that,
there are some that aren't because in
the past years Madrid has been elimi-
nated in the first round of the cup," the
Portuguese coach said. "The problem

-from.a mental standpoint is it's more

taxing to play twice aweek."
The final is scheduled for April 20 —
four days after the pair meet in the

league. The last time the two rivals met —

at that stage was 1990, when Barcelona
won 2-0.

Sevilla coach Gregorio Manzano
included his two transfer signings in the
team for the trip to the Spanish capital —
Chile midfielder Gary Mendel and Croa-
tia international Ivan Rakitic. Regular

goalkeeper Andres Palop was a also left

out in favor of Javi Varas.
"Tf everyone is. saying that Madrid has

- lost its chance.at-winning.the league,

which I don't agree with, and that reach-
es the locker room and they know there
are only two titles left to win — the cup
and the Champions League — then their
going to want to beat us," Manzano said.

Most of Barcelona coach Pep Guardi-
ola's news conference Tuesday was
directed by questions about a potential
matchup with Madrid and the league

‘Tace.

"We don't have time to think about

‘what could happen, we can't stop. We'll

rest four or five players this week
because an international game is coming
up and then the league and European
matches come up," Guardiola said.
"Thinking about the treble in January
is a waste of time. So the objective is to
keep competing and to keep working."

Barcelona defender Carles Puyol
could be rested as well as Spain team-
mate Andres Iniesta, who has a left
shoulder problem.

Almeria will count on Sofiane
Feghouli for the match at the Juegos
Mediterraneos Stadium after the French
player arrived on-loan from Valencia on
Monday.

Almeria also lost 8-0 at home to
Barcelona in the league this season.

Opening lead — king of clubs.
Declarer obviously cannot con-
trol the distribution of the defenders’
cards, which may or may not be
favorable to his cause. What he can

‘ do, however, is to try to find a way to

improve his chances on those hands
where an unfavorable lie of the cards
may exist.

Take this case where South went
down one but should have made the
slam. He won the club lead, cashed
three trumps and the ace of spades,
then led a diamond to the queen and
finessed the jack of spades.

East took the queen and returned
a club, and that was the end of that.
Of course, had declarer seen East’s

spade holding, he would have cashed
the king and made the slam. But it
would not be fair to criticize South
for failing to guess that East had the
doubleton queen of spades.
Declarer’s real error came ear-
lier, when he missed an opportunity
‘to give himself an extra chance. He
should ‘have drawn trumps and then
led a club. There was no need to try
an early spade finesse; it could be
taken just as well later on, if neces-
sary.
West would win the club and,
let’s say, return a spade. Declarer

’ takes the ace and ruffs a club, on

which East shows out. South now
cashes the Q-A of diamonds and a
trump, producing this position:

Declarer plays his last trump
West discarding a spade, dummy a
club and East a diamond. South now
leads a spade, and West follows with
the ten. Thanks to the earlier plays in
the club suit, declarer knows tha
West’s remaining card is the queen o
clubs, so a spade finesse can’t possi
bly succeed. He therefore puts up
dummy’s king, catches East’s quee!
and so makes the slam.

Massive project aims
to put the City of
Nassau in the picture

By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
aturnquest@tribunemedia.net

A MASSIVE collabora-
tive project has been
launched to commemorate
the 150th anniversary of the
City of Nassau.

_ Hoping to inspire a new
sense of ‘pride. and patrio-
tism’ in Bahamians, the
Dowtown Nassau Partner-

ship (DNP) is calling for
submissions to create a col-
lage of the city.

Gevon Moss, DNP pro-
ject manager, explained that
the organisation plans to use
the project to positively
engage residents and broad-
en the dialogue about the
ongoing transformation of
downtown Nassau.

Mr Moss said: “For thou-

sands of Bahamians, the,

_ THE RIDE FOR HOPE RAISES
$400,000 FOR CANCER SOCIETY



THE collective efforts of
untiring cyclists, countless vol-
unteers, and generous corpo-
rate sponsors have paved the
way for one of the largest gifts
to date to the Cancer Society
of The Bahamas, as the Ride
for Hope gifted the organisa-
tion $400,000.

Cofounder Stephen
Holowesko said, "We have
two simple goals for the Ride
for Hope. First, we want to
hold a safe event, one that
inspires our riders, our spon-

sors and the community. Sec- _

ond, we want to ensure that
the funds, so carefully raised
by our riders, are distributed
in the most direct and cost
effective way possible to help
Bahamians fighting cancer.”

Riders

Mr Holowesko said that in
the first five years of the event,

more than 1,000 riders collec- ©
tively pedalled over 10,000*

miles and raised $1.3-million.
“With the generous support

of our event sponsors, who ..

have underwritten the costs of.
the Ride for Hope, we have
consistently ensured that every
dollar raised by our riders goes
to our cancer-related: pro-
grammes,” he said.

So far, Ride Hope has:

e Paid for genetic research
into breast cancer gene muta-
tions in Bahamian women,
which, it has been discovered,
are the highest known rate in
the world.

e Created and funded the .

Family Island Mammogram
Screening Initiative (FIMS),
which brings at-risk Family
Island women to Nassau for
mammograms. To date 500

women have come to Nassau .

for screening and follow up vis-
its.

° Worked with
AstraZeneca, one of the
world’s largest and leading can-
cer drug researchers, to have
the Bahamas certified for
inclusion in their clinical drug
trials.

e Paid off the debt incurred
by the Cancer Society in build-
ing the acclaimed Cancer Car-
ing Centre in Nassau, where
Bahamians can stay while
receiving treatment and
receive the support and care
they need. —

¢ Helped pay for construc-
tion of the Cancer Society
headquarters in Eleuthera, a
cutting-edge resource centre

TROPICAL
AUS)



for the islands of Eleuthera,
Spanish Wells, and Harbour
Island.

e Funded the Emory Uni-
versity School of Nursing study
into Breast Cancer and the
impact of Culture on Aware-
ness, Education and Treatment

Mr Holowesko said on
Monday: “We are announcing
two more significant initiatives
today, focusing on education

and treatment. These distribu-.
tions take us over the $1 mil-:
lion mark in monéy spent on‘
education, research, screening .
and treatment. More impor- .

tantly, these initiatives are near
and dear to our core mission

and to that of the Cancer Soci- -

ety of the Bahamas.,

“The first gift of $200,000
will help the Cancer Society »

launch a national education
programme to spread the word
about risk, prevention, early
screening diagnosis, and treat-
ment. Both of our organisa-
tions believe fervently that rais-
ing awareness will positively
impact and save lives.

“The second gift — also of ;
- $200,000 — will help the Gancer

Society establish and adminis-
ter what we believe is the first-
ever cancer assistance treat-

ment fund. The Ride for Hope’

Treatment Assistance Fund
will provide direct financial
assistance to cancer patients in
need.

Proud

‘Mr Holowesko said the Ride

for'Hope “could not be more’

proud” to be helping to launch

these much needed pro- °

grammes.

“None of this would have °

been possible without the gen-
erosity of spirit and resources
of our participants, volunteers
and corporate sponsors. It is

their collective efforts that have .

helped us make the Ride for

Hope into one of the most suc-.

cessful fundraising and com-
munity events in the Bahamas.
And as the programmes listed
above amply show, we are
making a. difference for
Bahamians suffering from can-
cer. We are saving lives.”

Ride for Hope Bahamas, a
registered Charity in the
Bahamas, was formally consti-
tuted in 2009.

It was established for the
purpose of raising money to
support initiatives related to
health, wellness and human
development.

Ride for Hope’s designated
focus is cancer. The six year
old bike-a-thon held each
spring on the island of
Eleuthera is the organisation’s
flagship fund raiser.

Organisers say that without

exception, every dollar raised
by participants is applied to
programme support.

City of Nassau is our work
place, residence, dining hall,
party spot, lounge and meet-
ing room, place to conduct
business, the legislative hub,
our market place, our learn-
ing environment, our play-
ground, our memories, our
history, our welcome centre,
our banking centre, place of
worship, our shopping mall

— in a nutshell the City of
Nassau is our life.”

Residents

. Mr Moss added: “No one
could capture the essence of
the City of Nassau better
than its residents. Every
year, millions of tourists find
themselves on the shores of
Downtown Nassau, and they
have captured their portion
of this 150 year old city.
Now it is our time.”

Photos should’ display the
“beauty, interests, composi-
tion, colour, originality, and
most importantly the
essence of the City of Nas-
sau”. Eligible images must

Mr Moss: said: “We want
you to. venture into the city

' of Nassau, and visit some of

the famous and favorite
spots in time — or perhaps
even -visit some places
you’ve never seen or heard
of — and send us a pictorial
image of what you see and

A tradition for more than 25 years,

dred children bringing their trikes or

supervised course at Sandyport to prac-
tice the safety lessons they learned and
raise.funds for the hospital. .

Money was raised by donors who’

pledged an amount-per-lap for the child
or children they chose to sponsor.
“Every child saved at St Jude means

‘children saved around the world — a

direct result of cutting-edge research
and treatment that set the standard in
treating deadly childhood diseases,”
said Alice Langford, principal of Tam-
bearly School. “Through events like
Trike-A-Thon, children in the Bahamas
can support the St Jude mission of find-
ing cures and saving children every-
where.”

The Sandyport Trike-A-Thon event
was sponsored by the Sandals Founda-
tion, the philanthropic arm of Sandals
Resorts International.

-General manager of Sandals, Koen
De Rijcke, said the Sandals Founda-
tion was delighted to partner with the
pre-schoolers and join their charity
effort.

“When we heard that two hundred
children had signed up. for the event,
we not only wanted to sponsor but also

out and lending a hand to the event.”
St Jude depends on community-
based fundraising programmes like
Trike-A-Thon. At St Jude, families
never pay for treatment not covered
by insurance and no child is ever
denied treatment because of the fami-

ly’s inability to pay.

In 2010, St Jude was ranked the most
trusted charity in the United States and
was also named the top children’s can-

‘cer hospital in the 2010-141 Best Chil-

dren’s Hospitals rankings published by
US News and World Report.

guard Party has been
revived under the interim
leadership of journalist
and businessman, Charles
Fawkes.

Mr Fawkes, who will
serve as the party’s first
secretary, is also the-pres-
ident of the National
Consumer Association
andiorganiser for the
Commonwealth Group of
Unions.

Founded in 1971 and
originally known as the
Vanguard Nationalist and
Socialist Party, the party
suspended political activi-
ties in 1995.

According to.Mr
Fawkes while the party’s
old slogan — “Dare to
Struggle - Dare to Win”
— will be preserved, the
words “socialist and
“nationalist” will be
dropped.

“Henceforth, the
grouping will simply be
known as the Vanguard
Party (VP). However, the
party will remain as a
party of the left, exclu-
sively committed to the.
workers of the Bahamas,
the wider Caribbean and

the world and will partici- |

pate in the ongoing
debate and struggles from
that perspective,” said
the party in a statement.
Over the next six
months, it said, VP will
reorganise its Central
Committee, other party
organs and its supporters.

In addition, the party’s _

newspaper, “The Van-
guard” will begin publica-
tion once again.

. “In the coming months,
the organisation’s philos-
ophy will be further
explicated and dissemi-
nated to the public as the
second edition of the par-
ty’s book, The Struggle
for Freedom in the
Bahamas” will be pub-
lished. Other officers of
the party will also be

named and elected from _

the reorganised general.

said.

that in the “new type” of
party that “New Van- ©
guard” hopes to become,
the First Secretary will
serve as leader. ,
“Additionally, it should
be noted that to be a par-
ty of the people, it is not
enough to say that the
party represents the
masses. The party must
be an actual weapon of
the masses, articulating
their needs and demands
and struggling untiringly
for their interest.
“In a class divided soci-
’ ety, no party can speak
for all the classes. Those
who serve the interests of
the rich who profit from
the present economic sys-
tem must of necessity
work against the interests
of the poor and
oppressed masses. And

the neo-colonial PLP and .

FNM can no more serve
the working-class majori-
ty in Bahamian society
than could the old UBP.

“Only the Vanguard is
a workers’ party today,
and the political awaken-
ing of the Bahamian
working class will be ~
measured by the strength
and militancy of their
support for the Van-

_ guard.”

When first organised in
the early 1970s, the Van-
guard Party grew out of
the youth arm of the Pro-
gressive Liberal Party,
and drew inspiration ©
from the Black Panther
Party in the United
States.

Despite running Sonate
dates in elections in 1977
and 1979, the first Van-
guard Party was unable to
win a seat in parliament,
never garnering more
than 173 votes.

From 1979 to 1985, the
‘party was led by academ-
ic and political theorist
John T McCartney, now
the department head and
associate professor of .
government and law at
Lafayette College in Eas-
ton, Pennsylvania.

It went on to emphasie i

Bahamas’ geological wonders attracting international scientists

By NOELLE NICOLL
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

MANY Bahamians are
unaware of rare environmental
phenomenon that drive schools
of international scientists to the
country every year.

The Bahamas is home to the
third largest reef system in the
world, the Bahamas Barrier
Reef. It sits off the cost of
Andros on the edge of the
tongue of the ocean. Andros is
also home to the largest tropical
nursery system.of mangroves in
the Caribbean and the largest
salt water flats in the world. The
country can also boast about
having the highest concentra-
tion of blue holes.

But for all of its geological
and ecological splendour, most
Bahamians are none the wiser.

“This country is so wealthy
but we have been taught to
think that our wealth is some-
where else,” said Prescott Smith,
president of the Bahamas
Sportsfishing and Conservation
Association (BSCA).

“If we understood what we
had, we could have a complete

shift in how we market our
country and utilise the land. We
put very little emphasis on eco-
tourism, for example. A shift
means we can look at our sun,
sand and sea and see solar, silica
and science, for example,” said
Mr Smith.

If Bahamians understood the
importance of its sand as a raw
material in manufacturing they
would see more uses than just
aggregate in a concrete mix.

Resource

One of the chemical com-
pounds of sand is silica, an abun-
dant natural resource in the pro-
duction of drinking glasses, glass
for windows, solar panels,
among many other applications.
Many optical fibers used for
telecommunications are also
made from the compound silica,
said Mr Smith.

“The potential is amazing”,
he said, but Bahamians first
need to learn to appreciate sun,
sand and sea with new eyes.

Two of the geological won-
ders under high level research
locally are the country’s oolitic

sands and stromatolites. Cape
Eleuthera and Andros’ Joulter’s
Cay are famous sites to find
these uniquely round grains of
sand, sugar-sized. They have
large oolitic sand banks.

“It is the number one lab in
the world for geologists as they
do research,” said Mr Smith.

The Exuma Cays are home
to the natural marine phenom-
ena, stromalotites. They are one
of the “fascinating things of high
international importance” that
make the islands of the

Bahamas unique, said Eric :

Carey, executive director of the
Bahamas National Trust.

The stromalotites are locat-
ed in the protected waters of the
Exuma Land and Sea Park.

“To get a full appreciation for
the value of stromatolites you
are talking about high level aca-
demic study. It is Ph.D. level of
interest in what these fossils rep-
resent as living windows back
in time. It is not something the

average person would think '

about,” said Mr Carey.

“They are non-descriptive;
they look like grayish brown
rocks. They are not a thing of
beauty that would naturally

NEW. PROGRESSIVE YOUNG LIBERALS EXECUTIVE TEAM SWORN IN

: By PAUL G TURNQUEST

Tribune Staff Reporter
pturnquest@tribunemedia.net

A NEW executive team was
sworn in over the weekend to
represent the interests of the
Progressive Young Liberals.

Headed by new chairman,
Keenan Johnson, the PYL
intends to push an agenda this
year that will see the establish-
ment of new PYL branches,
youth forums, voter drives, and
a number of social outreach
projects in conjunction with
other organisations.

Complimenting the new
team on their victory, Mr John-
son told The Tribune yesterday

‘ that his group is comprised of

some very dynamic.and diverse
persons who will take the
organisation to another level.
Mr Johnson said: “I have
come to realise that the party
has understood that in order to
win this election they need the
support of their young people.

And in understanding that they '

have given us their support, and
they have assured us that we
will play a crucial role in the
actual national campaign.

“T have told the party execu-
tives, and I have told my team
before, and we have all agreed
that in order for the message
of the PLP to be effective it has
to.come from someone who
they can identify with; and they

can readily identify with their
own. '

“And so we have to be able
to go to the young people, peo-
ple our age, and tell them exact-
ly why we think they should
support us, and in supporting
us, support the party,” he said.

With the party having had an
issue in the past connecting
with younger supporters, Mr

_ Johnson said his new “dynamic

group” will make some strides
and trying to reverse this trend.

“I may think of a way in
which we can reach out to
young people, and there are
three or four other persons on
the board who will think of
many other ways. So we will
pool these ideas, and the one
thing I am happy of is the fact

that we have the party’s atten- ~

tion to listen to us, and to take
into account the advice that we
give them in moving forward
to get the youth vote.

“So while persons may say

‘the PLP may have had an issue

with attracting young people, I
feel that that is now long gone,
and we will do our best in
ensuring that it will not happen
in this election, to ensure that
the young people realise why
it is so important to bring the
PLP back into governance
because of the vision that Perry
Christie and the administration
that will come in has to enhance
the country at large.”

‘Turmoil in Egypt will reshape US role

WASHINGTON — The protests rocking
Egypt.could change the political landscape of
the entire Arab world and beyond. Possible

‘ outcomes range all the way from pro- -democ-
racy forces taking charge in Cairo to — in a
worst case — an all-out war bringing in Israel
and Iran. In between, there could be a long
period of instability that could breed econom-
ic chaos across the region and derail econom-
ic recoveries in the U.S. and Europe.

In Cairo, embattled President Hosni

Mubarak declared to his nation. in a televised °

address Tuesday night that he would not stand
for re-election but wouldn't leave office either,

_ determined to stay in power until-elections in.’

. September. Mubarak declined to rule out his
son as a candidate. Later, President Barack
Obama talked by phone to Mubarak for 30
minutes and said in brief remarks at the White
House that the Egyptian leader "recognizes
that the status quo is not sustainable and that a
change must take place."

But, Obama emphasized, he indicated

directly to Mubarak that it "is my’belief that an
orderly transition must be meaningful, it must

be peaceful and it must begin now." That ©

:’ appeared to imply, that the president was not

particularly enthusiastic about Mubarak's deci- |

sion,to wait until September. Mubarak made
his ‘half-way concession as hundreds of thou-
sands of Egyptians gathered in a major square
in Cairo to demand an end to his 30-year rule.

Egypt, the world's largest Arab nation, is
critically important to U.S. foreign policy'and
to major goals the Obama administration is
pursuing in the Middle East: the Israeli-Pales-

tinian peace process, containment of Iran's,

influence and nuclear. ambitions, counter-ter-
rorism.: "Right now you've got a thousand

people in government writing policy, memos .
said.’
Aaron David Miller, ‘a former.U.S. Mideast -

trying to figure out what's going’on,”

peacemaker who is now at the Woodrow Wil-
son Centre think tank. "The three-option
memo is standard. Option one is Armaged-
don. The world is falling apart. American inter-
ests will be completely threatened. ‘

"The third option is: Don't worry, boss, this
isn't.such a big deal. It's the middle option,
with respect to American interests, that we
have to pay serious attention to," Miller said.

’ . The worst case envisions a rise in extremist

Muslim factions in Egypt, Tunisia and even
Jordan. The Suez Canal and an adjacent
pipeline could be closed, the Egyptian-Israeli
peace accord renounced, the U.S.-Egyptian
diplomatic and military relationship ended.

Iran could move in to fill the vacuum. That
could/trigger war between Israel and Iran, per-
haps involving nuclear weapons. American
influence throughout the Region would be
greatly diminished.

Most Middle East experts and analysts don't
think such a doomsday. scenario will happen,

particula irly with encouraging signs of a peace-
ful transi‘er of power in Egypt and with the so-
far nonviolent nature of the demonstrations.
But thiere are still many signs of stress and
potential; problems ahead. And, it's clear, there
will be ni return to the status quo: The U.S.
role in tkie Middle East has probably been
altered faorever. Shibley Telhami, a Mideast
scholar at the University of Maryland, said it
was impos ‘tant for Obama to "lower our tone"
and not appear to get directly involved in the
leadershiy) change — for fear of creating an
unwelcome backlash. Any ‘period of govern-
mental uricertainty, if Egypt goes through a
succession’ of leaders, or if extremist factions

gain the up‘per hand, could keep tensions across,

the region high for a long period. Also adding
to the uncé:rtainty: The protesters are varied
and often liave conflicting agendas, ranging
from stude nts and grass-roots organizers to
online activ ists to the fundamentalist Muslim
Brotherhood that generally wants to form a
state goverined by Islamic law.The brother-
hood is cur.rently banned, but it could gain
power in ary period of political upheaval.
While the Birotherhood claims to have closed
its paramilitiary wing long ago, it has fought
politically tc) gain power. It has also built a
nationwide «charity and social network that
much ef Egy'pt's population depends on for
survival.

All nations in the region, in fact, that aren't
big oil-produ:cing states, have problems with

poverty and hunger, worries that could be |

worsened by any destabilizing event, he said.
And instabiliity in Egypt could spread to its
neighbours. .A confidential June 2005 U.S.
government diplomatic cable, posted online
Tuesday by the WikiLeaks organization,
showed that the: U.S. has long been concerned
that Egypt face.d a succession crisis.

Questions aty»out Mubarak's age and health,

the cable said, "have made presidential, suc-
cession a core national issue. '

It isn't clear low much clout will be wielded
by Mohamed E)|Baradei, the Nobel-prize win-
ning former dire:ctor of the International Atom-
ic Energy Agency, who has emerged over the
past few days as, the leading opposition leader.

"This is so ccomplex because the Egyptian
opposition has so many faces," said Peter Mori-

.ci, a University oif Maryland business professor
and former chief economist at the U.S. Inter-
national Trade C.ommission.

Morici said ov erhanging the whole issue of
possible ramificaitions is the possibility of a
tightening of oil supplies by oil-producing states
that might be unh appy with the turn of events
in Egypt's govern ance. With just a 5 per cent

-reduction in prodiiction, "you could hit $120.a
barrel and that's $4 a gallon gasoline." That
could torpedo a still fragile recovery, he said: :

EDITORIAL/LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

THE TRIBUNE





Our landscape
is littered
with missed
opportunities

EDITOR, The Tribune.

We are coming to the half-
century mark, in this era that
we call the modern Bahamas. If
we step back a bit and look at

| what we have accomplished to

this point, we see a landscape
littered with missed opportuni-

ties. A feast or famine attitude

coupled with issues of entitle-
ment that have left us wanting
to look away from what could
have been.

_It.is even more apparent

. when we look at what we have

allowed as Bahamians. Every
time we commemorate Major-
ity Rule day we end that cele-
bration trying to scratch an itch
that is more than skin-deep.
Some of our politicians have
sold us a bill of goods that have
us seeing “majority” along
racial lines and blatant attempts
are made, every January to

"remind us that “majority” is
. defined by “colour” and not by

being Bahamian.
Everytime I think about this
I want to laugh, because the

persons who fall outside of the .

“majority” seem to take their
responsibility as Bahamians

. very seriously; and it would be

very difficult for us who make
up the “majority” to exist in
this country without them;
whether they are Chinese
Bahamian, Greek Bahamian,
Italian Bahamian, Haitian
Bahamian, etc; etc; etc. Have

you noticed that all persons |

who are Bahamian, call them-

selves Bahamian? And, if you’

Some questions for
Minister in aftermath
of Mackey yard fire

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I listened with interest and
shock to Minister Earl
Deveaux’s remarks offering his
solutions to the unfortunate fire
at Mackey yard.

I paraphrased, he intends to
clear the land, fence it in and
rebuild following the building
code, etc.

My questions are as llows:

1) Are you clearing up public
or private land?

2) Who will supply the fenc-
ing?

. 3) Is the teplackivent housing
for Bahamians or Haitians who
are here legally or illegally?

_4) Who are the culprits at
Public Works, Health, BEC,
Water and Sewage, and BTC
who facilitated this disaster on
the tax paying Bahamians in
the first place?

5) Who is going to pay for
Mr Deveaux’s generosity?

May I suggest that Mr
Deveaux do the right thing and
call for an inquiry into this inci-
dent, determine who or what is
the problem and suggest a real
solution?

I cannot close without com-

.menting on the Wikileaks in

today’s papers. It is good that
the Chinese involvement in the
Caribbean is getting the atten-

I would like to blame it on
the British and their influence

backed it up, to the extent that
many Caribbean students going

could be more about a shifting
economic reality, where many
of the Caribbean customers

importers doing business in the

EDWARD
HUTCHESON
Nassau, :
January 14, 2011.




January 22 is an ominous day of mourning in the US.
On that day in 1973 the US Supreme Court cast a dark
cloud over America by outlawing unwanted human life.
On that day the courts decreed, in clenched affirmation, that -
the womb — the very cradle of life — was the most unsafe
place for an innocent human being to live.

But no matter how decadent and nihilistic our ‘leaders,
media, and lobbyists (like planned parenthood) have become
in praise of a false sense of freedom, they will never quash
the true human spirit of life and liberty that lives and grows.
in the very depths of the common man. This is because
“everyman” is educated by his heart and conscience, not his
pride. He cannot be deceived by the intricate tricks of the
intellect that would lead him to doubt the obvious fact that
an embryo is a human being or believe that human beings in
their earliest stages of existence are expendable.

Happily, this is becoming increasing clear in the insup- °
pressible and ever vibrant “Walks for Life” that are spring-
ing up throughout America and around the world.

Let us not give in to the false promises and hopes of our

contemporary elites who tell us that we should live only for

today and forget the gift of life in the womb. Let us instead
shout from the hilltops the scientific fact and moral truth that
a human embryo is a dynamic, autonomous, and mar-

velously ordered human being.

resources department at the Container Port
to verify the claims, but were told that the
relevant spokesperson was not available.

Meanwhile; a new union for workers at
the Container Port is soon to be officially
registered as a trade union by the Ministry of
Labour.

Director of Labour Harcourt Brown said
~ attorneys are in the process of completing
the vetting of the union's constitution.

He said the union is expected to receive its
registration certificate soon. ,

- The Freeport Container Port is one of the
largest employers on Grand Bahama.

The law requires that whenever a union is
going to be registered, certain documents,
including the union's constitution, have to be
submitted to the Ministry of Labour.

Mr Brown said the union submitted ‘its
constitution last year.

“We have all the information‘now and it is
going through the vetting process. As soon
as that process is complete, we will then
proceed.

After being registered, the union has to

apply for recognition from the Freeport |

Container Port as the bargaining agent for
workers.

If the company does not recognise the
union, then the minister of labour has to
decide whether the union should be recog-
nised as the bargaining agent.

he SPAY AND NEUTER CLINICS ARE A IGE aS

BAHAMAS Humane



Society executive director
Stephen Turnquest lead a
team of volunteers to the
Islands of Exuma and
_ Eleuthera to promote
responsible animal owner-
ship, through free spay and
neuter clinics.

A four-day clinic was held
on Exuma and a three day
« clinic on Eleuthera, which
resulted in a total of 280 ani-
‘mals being neutered. Dog
licenses were available at
both clinics and all dog own-
ers were encouraged to
license their dogs.

Mr Turnquest said: “One
of the myths I hear fre-
quently is that by neutering
an animal it somehow takes
away their pet’s ‘manhood’,
or that ‘she needs to have
her first litter’ but this is sim-
ply not true.

“Pets do not have egos
and neutering or spaying
will not cause an emotional
reaction or identify crisis.”

According to Mr Turn-
quest, spaying or neutering
will help pets live longer
healthier lives, and make
them less likely to roam the
streets or create a public nui-
sance by barking, howling
or marking territory.

Neutered dogs can
become even better protec-
tors. They focus on their
family and home rather than
trying to get out and repro-
duce.

Of course, Mr Turnquest
said, vaccinations are essen-
tial to prevent diseases like
distemper, preventing need-

less suffering and veterinary :

bills.
On behalf of the Humane

thanked the Lyford Cay

two anesthetic machines
which helped to make the
surgeries possible.

He also thanked the Exu-

The search for

buried treasure
in Fortune Hill

By LARRY SMITH

FORTUNE HILL, San Sal-
vador — "I been farming this
hill all my life," 81-year-old
Thomas Hania told me last
- week, although no crops are
grown on the.island any more.
"Every now and then people
’ come and start digging, but
ain't nobody find nothing yet.
‘There's caves and tunnels all
through this hill that we used to
play in when I was a boy. I wish





they would get to the bottom of

panionship. His singular claim

‘ to fame rests on the fact that he

is the last survivor of three boys
who once played marbles with
a legendary cache of gems they
came across in one of the giant
solution holes that honeycomb
the land around Fortune Hill.
"People used that cave as a
storm shelter,-and when I was a

‘schoolboy we played in one of

the tunnels with what we
thought were marbles. They
were man-made," Hanna said,
explaining that years later he
learned the "marbles" were in
fact diamonds, rubies and
emeralds, undoubtedly stashed
there by one of the infamous
pirates who once frequented
these parts.

One of the other boys
shooting marbles with Hanna
in the cave was Bert Deveaux's
grandfather, Merlin Butler.

_ Deveaux, now 74, was the BEC

manager on San Salvador for
years, and considered the may-
or of the island in his day. He

also claims to have farmed the:

land around the treasure cave

' where his grandfather once

lived.
Deveaux recalls the old sto-

ries about pirate treasure from

when he was a teenager. And
he and many others on the
island are certain that in the
1960s enough gold ingots to fill
a couple of 55-gallon drums
were found at a site near For-
tune Hill and acquired by the
late Jake Jones, one of the
island's leading entrepeneurs.
It was Jones who contacted

ABANDONED HOMESTEAD
near the treasure cave at
Fortune Hill on the east
coast of San Salvador.

Roy Solomon, San Salvador's
MP at the time, who sailed
down in his yacht to collect the
treasure — or so the story goes.

Ever since, Deveaux and
others have been searching for
buried treasure at Fortune Hill.
"T know more about this than
anyone else and I'd like to see
it found for the benefit of the

country," he told me recently. ©

"I used: dowsing rods to find

the cache, and there is more ©

than one. We think there could
be billions buried there."

It was Deveaux's Watling
Archaeological Research Com-

_ pany that ignited the first trea-

sure frenzy back in.2006, when
he began work at Fortune Hill
with a permit from the Antiq-
uities Corporation. Brave
Davis, who is the current MP
for San Salvador, was the com-
pany's lawyer; but the opera-
tion was shut down by the gov-
ernment so that conflicting land
claims could be sorted out.
These conflicts are magnified
by the island's raw political
divisions:

Gold fever erupted a sec-
ond time in 2008 when com-
peting families again began
jostling for position. This led
to the formation of a non-par-
tisan group that included Nas-
sau-based restaurateur Enrico
Garzarolli; a wealthy Ameri-
can named Grant Rose, and a
committee of leading citizens

that included Kevin Williams, .

Jim Storr, Bert Deveaux and
Charlie Jones. Rose was to pro-
vide the prospecting funds
from his own pocket.

This group was advised by
an Italian second homer named
Roberto Savio, founder of the
global news agency Inter Press
Service. His proposal called for
the government to keep 70 per
cent of the treasure, with the
rest divided among investors,
the various land claimants, a
trust fund for the people of San
Salvador (al:1,000 of them),
and United Nations children's
charities. The goal was to end
50 years of fighting by: rene
the pie.

Lifestyle

_ But again, squabbling among
families threatened to disrupt
the island's somnolent lifestyle,

so the government called a halt

to further investigations until
‘some determination could be

made of who had title to the ©
land. Late last year, State’

Finance Minister Zhivago
Laing (who has responsibility
for treasure trove) announced
that the Attorney-General's

Office was now satisfied that.

Dorothy Black-Beal, who was
born on the island but lives in
Florida, was the rightful owner.

"We took a few years trying”

to confirm the validity of doc-
umentation presented to us
about title to the land," Laing
told me. "I went to San Sal-
vador to say that the govern-
ment was able to confirm that
Black-Beal presented evidence,
which was confirmed by the
Attorney-General’s Office, that
her title to 22.8 acres of land
is a legitimate. Others would
have to challenge that finding
in court." _

Laing said. the goal was to
establish order in what was
turning out to bea very disor-
derly process. "The common
practice under treasure trove
is to enter into a share arrange-
ment with the finders so the
government does not incur the
expense of speculating and
does not discourage investment
in the search. Frankly many
seekers have no idea of such a
provision."

He was referring to the
Antiquities Act that took effect
in 1999. It says any found man-
made object at least 50 years
old is considered an antiquity
‘whose ownership is vested in
the government, although a
reward may be offered to the
finders based on negotiation.

No-one may excavate or search

for antiquities without a licence
from the Antiquities Monu-
ments and Museums Corpora-
tion. *

To get a license, applicants
must satisfy the AMMC that
any excavation will be con-
ducted scientifically and any
artifacts propérly documented
and preserved. They must also
put up a performance bond. "If
there is treasure to be found,
this is an archaeological site,"
AMMC Chairman Orry Sands
told me. "And I am pretty sure

that ic chaenlasiets don't use -

bulldozers and backhoes to
excavate. Anyone who gets a
license from us to work on this
site will have to conduct a
proper investigation with our
archaeologist present.”

The situation now is that
Black-Beal is waiting for a per-
mit to be issued before launch-
ing what is sure to become a
new feeding frenzy on the
island. And at least three other

- claimants have said they will

challenge her title in court and
may also apply for permits to
excavate.

"Iam probably the least
convinced about the treasure,
although I hope there is some-
thing there for her sake,"
Black-Beal's lawyer, Greg Cot-

tis, told me- recently: ""I-guess

the good thing about not being
caught up in treasure mania is

that it allows me-to remain -

which is simply to protect her
property from trespass and

“According to Cottis, a Flori-
‘da archaeologist has been

engaged to monitor the
planned excavation, which, will
be conducted by Richard:Clem

. of C & H Salvage in Fort Laud-

erdale. It was Clem who began
digging at the Fortune Hill site

‘on Black-Beal's behalf over the

holidays, until he was stopped
by the government because he
had no permit from the
AMMC.

Meanwhile, there is natu- ;

rally resentment on the island
over the government's certifi-
cation of Black-Beal as the
rightful owner of the Fortune
Hill site, and- the rumour mill
has been working overtime.
Expatriate residents are said
to be prospecting at the site
under cover of darkness, and
political payoffs are always in
the pipeline — no matter which
party is in power.

During my visit, the site was

deserted. And although bull-_

dozers’ have clearéd a wide

avenue from Thomas Hanna's -

house up the hill past aban-
doned homesteads to the cave,
previous excavations have all
been filled in. According to San
Salvador's administrator,
Theresa Bootle-Bethel, "the
situation never got to, the point
of disorder, but it has the
potential to do so. A lot of fam-
ilies are involved and as long as
they believe they own the land
the controversy will go on."

A former teacher from Aba-
co, Bootle-Bethel said she is
intrigued by the treasure and
the history behind it.

"There's a lot of folklore and
speculation and suspicion
involved.

“This battle has raged for so

long that I'd like to Oe here to

see it resolved."

There is no doubt that leg-
endary pirates like William
Kidd, John Watling or Henry
Avery had the opportunity to
hide their spoils on San Sal-
vador (in fact, the island was
named after Watling until
1926), but scientific opinion is

‘very sceptical about the For-

tune Hill story.

"The San Salvador gold sto-
ty has a life of its own," one
geologist told me. "Years ago,
when I was surveying the
islands, the locals always asked
if I was looking for gold. It is
part of the culture, and people
go nuts — even reasonable peo-
ple. I have seen estimates of
billions of dollars of treasure.
One can do simple calculations
at current prices to determine
how much gold that would be.
The numbers won't add up."

Others say it is a case of, "If
I hadn't believed it, I wouldn't
have seen it:" There is a report
of some minor amount of
household goods (such as flat-
ware) being found in one of
the caves in the Fortune: ‘Hill
area, but scientists point ‘out
that most dry Bahamian caves
were mined for guano in the
1800s, so most cultural objects
are long gone. The treasure
stories tend to strain their cred-
ibility, because no one has pro-
duced a shred of direct evi-
dence, It is all hearsay.

Prospectors

Geophysical reports pro-
duced. by some prospectors in
the past are false, they say.
According to one geologist,
"Claims of being able to
resolve and identify diamonds,
emeralds, gold, silver, etc
underground are flatly untrue.
In my home state, if I failed to
report this fraud I would lose
my licence."

A Nassau- based developer
on the island pointed out that if
the apocryphal story about
Solomon acquiring-the gold
bars from Jones 50 years ago
was true, why wouldn't he — or
others in authority at the time —
have pursued the matter out of
their own greed? And a civil
engineer who has worked on
the island questions why some-
one would hide such a valuable
treasure in a way that no-one
could ever retrieve it without
demolishing an entire hill. .

While some consider the

. treasure story to be a scam, or

the result of vivid imaginations
and wishful thinking, there

~-does seem to be a consensus

on the island that the story
should be confirmed or invali-
dated once and for all, and as
expeditiously as possible. Of
course, who should or would
benefit from any actual discov-
eries is another story.

"The more IJ think about it,
the more convinced I am that
until somebody does a real
excavation, which will take sev-
eral months.and a lot of mon-
ey, we will never know the
truth," Savio told me at his
home on Sandy Point.

"My formula is to bring in a
guy with money and technolo-
gy and make a clear agreement
with the government and the
community before excavating.
If there is nothing, the prospec-
tor will lose his money. If there

. is something, the prospector,

the families, the community
and the country as a whole will
benefit. This seems to be the
only sensible approach."

bolic plot of purgatory sexual
exploitation of the boys to sat-
isfy your’ deprived sexual

“In my mind, it is clear that
the appropriate sentence must
reflect in a real way the grav-
ity of these most serious
heinous crimes and the affect

youngest of who appears to —

be most affected, that the boy
described himself as your sex

Trinidadian Birbal, a for-
mer. art teacher at the Eight
Mile Rock High School, was
sentenced at the Supreme
Court yesterday.

He was convicted last
Thursday after a jury found
him guilty in six of the eight
charges of unnatural sexual
intercourse with two minors
under age 18.

Birbal was accused of hav-
ing sexual intercourse with
two former students.

The incidents were alleged
to have occurred between
January 2002 to June 2007
with one boy, and from Sep-
tember 2002 to June 2005
with the second boy.

Tribune Freeport Reporter

FREEPORT - Andre Birbal
showed no emotion as he was led
away in handcuffs from the Supreme
Court on Tuesday to serve out a 35-
year sentence at Her Majesty’s
Prison in New Providence.

Birbal, 48, was found guilty of
having unnatural sexual intercourse
with two former male students at
the Eight Mile Rock High School.

The Trinidadian came to the
Bahamas some 23 years ago with
this family — a wife and son. He was
employed with the Ministry of Edu-
cation as a teacher in Abaco.

Birbal and his family later moved

_ to Grand Bahama in 1989 where he

was employed as an art teacher at
the Eight Mile Rock High School.
He taught art design and comput-
er aid design for 18 years at the
school. He taught one of the boys
for five years and the second for

. only six weeks.

After allegations of seuuel
molestation surfaced in January
2009, Birbal was removed from the

- school and sent to New Providence,
‘where he. was requested to report

in daily at the Ministry of Educa-
tion.

He resigned in February 2009.
Shortly afterward, he left the
Bahamas after investigations were
launched into complaints by two of
the former students.

Birbal was arrested in New York
on a traffic violation in May 2009.

During a check, US authorities dis-
covered that Bahamian police had
issued a warrant of arrest for Birbal
with Interpol.

The Office of the Attorney Gen-
eral applied to US officials for Bir-
bal’s extradition to the Bahamas to
face sexual molestation charges.

After being incarcerated for one
year in the United States, Birbal
was extradited to the Bahamas in
March 2010 and charged with unnat-
ural sexual intercourse with two
minors.

On May 6, 2010, Birbal was flown
to Grand Bahama for fixture hear-
ing and a trial date was set for Jae
uary 15, 2011.

During the trial, Birbal main-
tained his innocence.

residing in the Bahamas as a per-
manent resident and had never been
arrested in the Bahamas for a crime.
He and his wife were divorced.

Birbal was accused of eight counts
of unnatural sexual intercourse with
two minors between January 2002
and June 2007, and September 2002
and June 2005.

On January 26, a jury found him
guilty in six of the eight counts.

Although Birbal will be locked
away for many years, one of the vic-
tims said that the sexual ordeal he
underwent at the hands of the
accused will always remain with him.

“I am glad it is over, but it will
not change what happened to me,
it will never go away.

“Tt will still be the same inside,”
he said..

He testified that he had been

Sex case teacher jailed for 35 years

During trial, the victims,
who are now 21, testified how
their art teacher undressed
them, took nude photographs
of them, and had sexual inter-
course with them in his class-
room.

They said Birbal gave them ,

money and continued to have
sex with them up until they
were graduated from high
school.

Birbal’s attorney Carlson
Shurland intends to appeal
the outcome of the trial and
sentence imposed by the
court.

During mitigation, he said
the case was prejudicial from
the start because of pre-trial
publicity.

Mr Shurland said his client

has professed his innocence

and could not express
remorse for something he did
not do.

Prosecutor Armbrose Arm-
brister said the Crown viewed
the offences committed by
Birbal at the high end, and
felt that a sentence ought to
reflect that.

Armbrister stressed there

“were a number of aggravat-

ing factors against the former
teacher.

He noted that Birbal had
groomed one of the victims
into his “sex slave.”

“By the time one of the vic-
tims reached the 12th grade,
he said he belonged to Bir-
bal, that he was a sex slave

for Birbal,” Mr Armbrister -

said.

Mr Armbrister noted that
Birbal, a teacher of 18 years at
the Eight Mile Rock High,
had also breached the pub-
lic’s trust.

“He had a position of pow-
er, and the trust of the Min-
istry of Education and the
parents, and he breached that
trust when, he had sex with
those boys in his classroom,”
he said.

The prosecutor also noted
that the boys were very
young, ages 11 and 12, when
Birbal had sex with them the
first time.

Birbal, he said, would have
been 39 during his first sexual
encounter with the boys.

The prosecutor explained
that the penalty of unnatural
sexual intercourse carries a

hits out at ‘Brave’
- Davis campaign

tal part of various Achievements and

accomplishments seen throughout | Cat -

Island.

Defending his 19-year record as parlia-
mentary representative for the Island Mr
Davis said: “I find it difficult to respond to
anything that is said by him, suffice it to
say that I stand by my records — All of the
Bahamas knows who and what George
Wilson is about.”

‘Mr Davis was recently in Cat Island in
what he has termed his “national listening
tour” when he assured constituents that
he would be offering himself as the can-
didate for the Progressive Liberal Party to
represent the people of Cat Island, Rum
Cay and San Salvador in the next general
election.

Speaking of the recent campaign in Cat
Island Mr Wilson said, “I find his behav-
iour, as a want-to-be national leader, as
irresponsible and reckless.”

Mr Wilson alleges that. Mr Davis is tak-
ing credit for being an instrumental part in |

such projects as the port entry on the
island, bringing cable television to the
constituency and lobbying for Bank of
the Bahamas to open a branch in Cat
Island.

He said: “No one in Cat Island has been
able to point to one thing that he has
done, but now Mr. Davis shows up to
itemize things he claims to have accom-
plished in Cat Island, Rum Cay and San
Salvador over the past 20 years.”

Responding to Mr Wilson’s accusations
the MP challenged him to “put his records
out to the public and let them decide who
is irresponsible and reckless.”

Mr Wilson said he intends to seek the
FNM nomination for Cat Island, Rum
Cay and San Salvador “because of the
_ neglect of Cat Island by Mr Davis.”

Mr Wilson is no stranger to politics
being a former secretary-general of the
Progressive Liberal Party before joining
the FNM where he led the FNM’s action
group.



Mr Wilson also ran as an independent
candidate for Cat Island in the 1992 bi-
election losing to Mr Davis.

Mr Wilson faced charges and was con-
victed of fraud in 1999 for which he served
four and half years of a 20-year sentence
in a Texas prison before his conviction
was reversed by the United States Court
of Appeals in February 2003.

Throughout his time in prison Mr Wil-

son proclaimed his innocence.

Following his return to the Bahamas
Mr Wilson campaigned for political

‘reform and constitutional change to pro-

vide greater constitutional protection for
rights of Bahamian citizens.

FNM Chairman Carl Bethel told The
Tribune yesterday that as far as he is
aware Mr Wilson has yet to apply for the
FNM seat.

He said: “I have received applications
from numerous people, however George
Wilson is not one of them.”

maximum sentence of 20
years, and has since been
amended to also carry a max-
imum of life in prison.

However, he noted that the
maximum life sentence does
not apply in Birbal’s case
because the offences were
committed before the law was
amended.

Justice Longley took into
consideration that Birbal is a
father, and that he has already
spent one year in prison
awaiting trial.

However, he noted that
Birbal abused the trust of the
boys and their parents, and
used the office of the church
to carry out his sexual plot.

“Evidence revealed you
were involved in the church
outreach ministry doing con-
siderable charitable. work in
the community, and through
your auspices considerable

‘charitable donations were

made to the family of these
boys.

“However ... you used the
offices of the church and your
position as a teacher, and




your relationship with the

boys to gain confidence of the |
boys, but also the confidence ~

and trust of their parents
while scheming all the time
to carry out a diabolic plot of
purgatory sexual exploitation
of the boys.to satisfy your
depriyed sexual appetite.

- “In my mind, it is clear that

_ the appropriate sentence must

reflect in a real way the grav-
ity of these most serious
heinous crimes and the affect
upon these young boys, the

. youngest of who appears to

be most affected, that the boy
described himself as your sex
slave.

_ “This is a wholesale sys-
tematic abuse of the boys ...
and the circumstances have
suggested that you may have
even been involved in pornog-

Colossal storm roars through US heartland

CHICAGO

A WINTER weather colos-
sus roared into the nation's
heartland Tuesday, laying down
a paralyzing punch of dangerous
ice and whiteout snow that
served notice from Texas to
Maine that the storm billed as
the worst in decades could live
up to the hype, according to
Associated Press.

Ice-covered streets were
deserted in Super Bowl host city
Dallas. Whiteouts shut down
Oklahoma City and Tulsa. And
more was on the way. Chicago
expected 2 feet of snow, Indi-
anapolis an inch of ice, and the
Northeast still more ice and
snow in what's shaping up to be
a record winter for the region.

The system that stretched
more than 2,000 miles across a
third of the country promised
to leave in its aftermath a chilly
cloak of teeth-chattering cold,
with temperatures in the single

digits or lower.

Winds topped 60 mph in
Texas. The newspaper in Tulsa,
Okla., canceled its print edition
for the first time in more than a
century. In Chicago, public
schools called a snow day for
the first time in 12 years, and
both major airports gave up on
flying until at least Wednesday
afternoon.

The storm also led Chicago
officials to close the city's busy
and iconic Lake Shore Drive
while crews tried to plow snow
Tuesday night. City officials said
the move was temporary but
that they could have to close it
again if high winds push 25-foot
waves from nearby Lake Michi-
gan onto the roadway.

Everyone "should brace for a
storm that will be remembered
for a long time," said Jose San-
tiago, executive director ofthe
city's office of emergency man-
agement.

Cities across middle America

shut down hours ahead of the
snow. Scores of schools, colleges
and government offices can-
celed activities or decided not to
open at all. Large sections of
busy Midwest interstates were
closed, and 9,000 flights had
been canceled across the nation.

Advice to stay home was fol-
lowed widely. Thousands of
office workers in Chicago's
famous downtown Loop district
left early to avoid any transit
troubles. Pete Donaghue, a 49-
year-old commodity trader,
missed an early train before
catching a 2:35 p.m. ride to sub-
urban Wilmette.

"Big mistake," he said. "I'd
be home right now, with my feet
up, clicker in hand."

At the city's elegant apart-

ment buildings closest to Lake
Michigan, employees weren't
fazed by the storm, but they
kept an eye on the lakefront
nonetheless. The wind was
strong enough outside one

building's lobby to send the
heavy revolving door spinning
by itself. |

"This is nothing to play with
here. This is gale-force wind,"
doorman Edward Butler said
as he peered outside at snow
blowing horizontally and in

_ small cyclones.

The management at Butler's
building called in-extra employ-
ees for the storm. They bought
the staff dinner and offered to
put them up for the night at a
nearby hotel, but Butler
planned to drive home no mat-
ter what.

"If you're a true Chicagoan,
you don't back down from this
kind of storm." But, he added,
"if you don't respect it, you'll
pay a price."

In Missouri, more than a foot
of snow had fallen by midday,
with no end in sight. For the
first time in history, the state of
Missouri shut down Interstate
70, between St.. Louis and





Kansas City due to a winter
storm.

"The roads are just pure
white. There's no traffic. Noth-
ing," said Kristi Strait, who was
working at Clinton Discount
Building Materials in Clinton,
Mo.

Meteorologist Jeff Johnson
of the National Weather Ser-
vice in Des Moines said the

done to make the public aware ‘at the chal-
lenges currently faced by the hospital, it
would do well to improve the quality of care
received.

Helena Robinson, 77, was diagnosed and
referred to Princess Margaret Hospital by
the South Beach clinic for the removal of
the middle toe on her right foot on January
13. At that time, she was scheduled to have
toe removal surgery on February 4 — this
Friday.

‘Mr Robinson explained that he took his
mother back to the South Beach clinic on
Monday after he. noticed that her ankle had
swollen and the surrounding toes on that
foot appeared to be infected.

Back at the clinic, Mr Robinson said the
doctor told him that the surgery should have
taken place at the time of the initial referral
and advised that three toes would now have
to be removed. He again referred the family
back to Princess Margaret.

Mr Robinson said: "I realise that they
have some challenges on their hands but
they ain't getting it right. If you come out
and say. these are our challenges, we are

working to fix the solution, if.you would
please be patient with us. It's the communi-
cation and then the sour attitude from nurs-
es like they’re doing you a favour. They act

like they really don't care."

At Princess Margaret Hospital, Mr Robin-
son claims the gross lack of communication
and poor customer service can be attributed
to the negative experience they received on
Monday and yesterday. As an elderly dia-
betic, he said, 1; mother should have been
thoroughly assessed — as she had not eaten
since breakfast on Monday and was therefore
unable to take her medication for a full day
as she waited to be admitted and seen by a
doctor.

Hospital administration addressed claims
against the quality of service provided by
staff at the Princess Margaret Hospital late
last year following two separate-claims of
mistreatment at the facility.

In both cases — published in The Tribune -
it was concluded that the proper medical
care and treatment protocol were followed,
however, it was acknowledged that concerns
raised could have been avoided through
increased communication. Patient dissatis-
faction was said to stem from break downs in
communication between patients, relatives

_ and care providers.
In November, Coralie Adderley, chief

Hospital Administrator, explained that an
increased effort would be made to improve
communication between relatives and
patients. Ms Adderley also confirmed that
improvement efforts will include establishing
protocols so that the care team, persons pro-
viding care to patients, will explain why they
are waiting at each step.

‘Mr Robinson added: "Somebody ought to
come forward and say something to the pub-
lic — calm the nerves of the people, rather
than nobody say anything. People see a
bunch of doctors: or nurses around, but no
one is saying anything. I just came from the
hospital, but I don't know what is going on
with my mother or when she will have her
surgery. I don’t know, I just don’t know."

To facilitate the timely transfer of feed-
back from patients and relatives towards care

’ received and suggestions for improvement,

patients are encouraged to contact the Client
Feedback Unit at 328-7379.

Hospital officials were unable to respond
to concerns raised by the Robinsons up to
press time; however administration is expect-
ed to provide further information on the
matter today. .

HELENA ROBINSON was diagnosed and referred to Princess Mar-
garet Hospital by the South Beach clinic.

QUALITY IN EVERYTHING WE Do



‘unfit’ water claims

claims that the WSC had not. —

FROM page one

terday as he accused gov-
ernment of a massive cov-
er-up of negligence and
incompetence as he said Mr
Neymour’s department had
failed to address concerns
over water quality at the
Reverse Osmosis (RO)

‘Plant in.Grand Cay and did

not engage those affected in
the 500-strong community.
Concerns were first raised

' by residents and Mr Roberts

when the plant first became
operational late last year as
the water’s smell indicated it
was contaminated with
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S).
Mr Neymour asserted that
Hydrogen Sulfide is a com-
mon problem at water
plants throughout the
Bahamas as organic matter
in the soil gives off the H2S
gas, which can build up and
make the water undrink-
able, as it did at WSC RO

. plants in Exuma and Ack-

lins under Mr Roberts' min-
isterial watch. _

A team of Water and
Sewerage Corporation
(WSC) experts and officials,
including a hydrologist and
WSC’s area manager and
assistant general manager,
went to’ Grand Cay to
address the problem last
month and residents said the
smell-has vanished over the
last two weeks.

And although Mr Roberts

_ conceded the water is now

clear and odourless, he said
samples he had tested at the
Chela-Tech medical labora-
tory in Centreville, Nassau,
were found to contain
pseudomonas species — bac-
terium that occur in soil and
organic matter — making it
unfit for human consump-
tion.

However, Mr Neymour
questioned’ the integrity of
Mr Roberts’ samples yes-
terday, as he said they may

have been contaminated:

during transportation to
Nassau.
The minister also refuted

addressed concerns and
engaged the community.
“Mr Roberts again is rais-
ing unnecessary alarm and
a responsible politician

should not do so,” Mr Ney-.

mour said.

Since remedial work
began at the plant an expert
has been stationed there to
monitor the water quality,
and. proved a marked
improvement.

“They have been testing
the water and it has been
meeting international stan-

dards,” the minister assert- ,

ed.
However, the political
row has left some Grand
Cay residents uncertain

about the truth of their wel- |

fare, and chief councillor
George Russell took his
own water samples and sent
them for testing at a lab in

Freeport. He expects the |

results later this week.

“JT just wanted to know for
myself, so if people ask me,
I can say this is what it is
and be fair about it,” Mr
Russell said.

“As far as I’m concerned
the odour is not there any-
more, the WSC has been
responding, there has been

someone working on it, and _

it has improved.
. “It’s not like they’re

Prime Minister Hubert

silence prompted criticism }

Jack Thompson, Director of Immigration, said: “The month
of January has-been a very busy month for us — we had a wave

of illegals entering the country. We have tried as best to return
these persons to their homes as quickly as possible.” '

Illegal immigrants repatriated last month include 365 Hait-
ian nationals and 61 Dominicans.

Mr Thompson added: “We try to repatriate smartly by
doing a few things, one is repatriating immediately from the
family islands as opposed to bringing them into New Provi-
dence. To overnight them, house them, feed them, all of that
creates additional cost so we try to do it as quickly as possible.”

Abaco’s ‘ear

Chamber chief estimates
BEC woes cost Abaco

With the “fear factor”

es that 'they were set to face
another “nightmarish” sum-
mer of power.cuts, the Aba-
co Chamber of Commerce
president yesterday said he
was now Satisfied that a
“serious and genuine focus”
has been brought to bear on
ensuring a consistent power
supply is available to the
islands this year.

Michael Albury made this
statement as he outlined the

‘impact of months of daily
power outages in Abaco last
summer.

A “conservative” esti-
mate, said Mr Albury, was
that “$3- $4 million” in busi-
ness for Abaco companies
was lost, mainly due to the
decision by visitors to short-
en or cancel stays in the
islands.

The Bahamas Financial Services Board's

helping the organisation advance its action
plan for the year ahead.

Wendy Warren, the BFSB’s chief execu-
tive and executive director, said: "The event
is evolving still, but we are quite pleased

- with the progress made since the inaugural
IBFS in 2010 and, in fact, the first ‘Retreat’

in 2004. The decision to target the focus of
the original annual Retreat to one of busi-
ness development and sustainable growth
permeated the entire event, with the closing
Roundtable crafting the Action Plan for
2011."

Ms Warren said the BFSB was grateful
for the collective input from domestic and
international participants, and the practical
insights they provided. Participants included

Brent Symonette, deputy prime minister.

Delaney, Attorney General and minister of

legal affairs; and Zhivargo Laing, minister of .

sented the Official Opposition.

regulatory bodies: Governor Wendy Craigg
of the Central Bank of the Bahamas; Philip
Stubbs, chairman of the Securities Com-
mission of the Bahamas; and Lennox
McCartney, Superintendent. of the Insur-
ance Commission of the Bahamas.

Other government officials joined with
private sector industry stakeholders and

international guests to make up the 140.

attendees at the annual event.

The agenda for IBFS 2011 was wide rang-
ing, and covered topics from the Global
Winds of Change, Taxation Developments
and Knowing Your Customer Essentials right
through to Business Insights and Future
Thinking for the Bahamian financial ser-
vices sector. Speakers also represented a
cross-section of industry experts hailing from
Brazil, Canada, China, Hong Kong, Mexico,
South Africa, the UK and the US - joining
with local expert resources.

The final day of IBFS had a distinct busi-

overview of the industry and continuing
with targeted breakout sessions, where small

BISX-listed firm to.
expand plant 67%

Consolidated Water gets five-year extension to 2031 on Water & Sewerage Corporation
supply contract, as it moves to expand Blue Hills RO plant to 12m gallons per day

By NEIL HARTNELL
Tribune Business Editor

BISX-listed Consolidated Water yes-
‘terday confirmed earlier Tribune Busi-
‘ness revelations by announcing it had

signed a binding agreement with the
Water & Sewerage Corporation to
expand the production capacity of its
Blue Hills reverse osmosis plant by 67
per cent to 12 million gallons of water per
day, in addition to obtaining a five-year
extension to its supply contract.

‘In a statement issued yesterday, Con- ,

solidated Water said capacity at Blue
Hills would be expanded from the cur-
rent maximum of 7.2 million gallons per
day and, together with its other Nassau-
based plant, Windsor, would be able to
produce a combined 14.6 million gallons
‘of water per day.

With its supply contract with the Water
& Sewerage Corporation extended by a
further five years to 2031, thus enabling
~ it to likely recover the undisclosed invest-
ment cost associated with the expansion,
Consolidated Water said the move would

reduce dependence on more expensive |

water currently barged from Nassau.
Consolidated Water’s initial contract
was for a 20-year supply period.
"We are pleased to announce this
agreement with Water & Sewerage Cor-

poration. , which will allow the citizens
and businesses in Nassau and throughout
the entire island of New Providence to

sharply reduce their dependence upon

more expensive water that is currently
barged from Andros to port facilities at

Arawak Cay on New Providence Island," _

said Rick McTaggart, chief executive of

_ Consolidated Water.

"By expanding the Blue Hill plant,

Water & Sewerage Corporation should .

eliminate almost $7 million in capital
spending that would have been required
to relocate the present barging opera-
tion from Arawak Cay, and should
realise several million dollars in addi-
tional yearly cost,savings by replacing
barged water with locally produced
desalinated water.

Economics

“The economics of the Blue Hill facil-
ity, which is our largest plant and has
been delivering water to Water & Sew-
erage Corporation since 2006, should sig-
nificantly benefit from the expansion in
capacity and the 5-year extension of our
contract with Water & Sewerage Cor-
poration."

"We are very pleased that the
Bahamas government has once again

' selected Consolidated Water to provide

Mr Rolle said the project

He said he expects “real

take place at the site this
year, noting the demand for

Abaco’s ‘fear factor’ eases

FROM page 1B

Treasury was estimated by realtors to have
taken a “pretty staggering” hit to the tune of
$2-$3 million as a result of people who had -

committed to buying property “backing out” _

due to concerns over electricity supply avail-
. ability.

As President of the Chamber of Commerce
for Abaco, Mr Albury said he had of late ‘been
hearing numerous concerns from the business
community that mot enough was being done to
make sure the new Wilson City power plant
and related technical issues would be dealt
with in time to,ensure Abaco would not suffer
another summer of power problems.

The plant had been scheduled to come on.

stream in 2010, but has been set back, and to
date testing of the generators is ongoing.
Bidding is shortly set to begin on the instal-
lation of an upgraded transmission line capa-
ble of carrying the requisite amount of power
from the new plant to Abaco’s residents and
businesses. This line is now expected to be in
place by May 2010, something which Mr
Albury said suggests the issue may have been
“seriously overlooked” up until now.

The business community’s concern caused’

Mr Albury to contact the Minister of the Envi-
ronment, Earl Deveaux, who has responsibil-
ity for BEC, to let him know that “a serious sit-
uation” was evolving in Abaco, in which the
“public was on the verge of speaking out in a
group again” about their power concerns - an
apparent reference to the demonstration
staged against BEC in Abaco last summer.
Dr Deveaux traveled to Abaco on Friday
with BEC officials, and gave a presentation
to a group of business stakeholders about the
status of the power plant and transmission
line. Mr Albury said the meeting and Dr
Deveaux’s statement left him with the impres-
sion that the Minister is “seriously and gen-
uinely focused” on ensuring the islands do not
face the same problems they did last year.
The Minister outlined the status of genera-
tor testing efforts at the plant, the plans for the
transmission line upgrade, and gave assur-



ances that if necessary, power can still be sup-
plemented from the older power plants at

-Marsh Harbour and Sandy Point, Abaco, as

the “transition” to Wilson City takes place.
He said there will be “no shortage of power”
once the new power plant comes on stream.

“T think he has really grasped and emotion-
ally started to feel how this has affected the
economy of Abaco,” said Mr Albury. .

Despite this; Mr Albury said yesterday that
it appears.some summer business may have
already been lost for Abaco’s tourism industry
as discussions in online forums frequented by
repeat visitors have focused on the fact that the
power plant is not yet on line, and questions
continue to be asked by visitors about whether
the power supply will be improved by sum-
mer 2011.

“It’s too late to avoid some loss of busi-

ness,” said the Chamber president and owner
of the Conch Inn Hotel and Marina.

Recent power outages in Abaco, which came
about as a result of inadequate controls during
testing of the generators at the new plant, “got
people on edge” about its status and further
fuelled concerns among potential visitors who
are keen to know whether they should book an
Abaco vacation this year.

“That got everyone riled up. I think the fear
factor was pretty high, and I think it still is
high ‘until you see work being done on that
(transmission) cable,” said Mr Albury.

The Chamber president said Abaco is also
happy to have received an undertaking from
Dr Deveaux that there will be better commu-
nication from BEC officials about the status of
the Wilson City plant and power generation
going forward, with this also being deemed
key to ensuring that the islands can minimise
business losses going forward.

“When youre asked by your guests: ‘How is
the new plant coming on’ and you have to say:
‘Frankly, I.don’t really know’, that does not
inspire confidence.

“We want to be able to say: ‘Well the cable
has been ordered and the contractor’s name is
Mr Smith...’. If you know things are in progress
then people know at that point that it’s ofily a
matter of time...” said Mr Albury.

Detailing the investment
involved each time a branch

undertaken, Mr McDonald
said: “Every time we do a

numbers we work with.

Hae hatea ee i nology as well. Half of that
pel sie e. That c wipe i is spent in the Bahamas
i: directly, and the rest is

lion, or 75 cents per share, a ! spread across the region.”

Mr McDonald told Tri-

bune Business that the new
Royal Bank location at
Prince Charles Drive was
“50 per cent or more larger
than the one across the Mall.
Every time we’re refreshing
them, we’re expanding
them, which speaks to the
kind of growth we’ve expe-
rienced in the Bahamas, and
the growth the Bahamas has
experienced”.

Nathaniel Beneby, Royal
Bank’s president and coun-
try head for the Bahamas,
said the Family Islands, too,
had befiefited from the
expansion of existing
branches, the Marsh Har-
bour location having grown
in size three-four times. He
and Mr McDonald hinted
that expansion plans were
in place for other Royal
Bank locations in the Fami-

ly Islands.

Mr Westlake, a member
of the group executive team

responsible for setting Roy- |

al Bank’s global strategic
direction, and head of its
international banking oper-
ations, told Tribune Busi-

‘ness that there was “no bet-

ter example than the
Bahamas” when it came to
refreshing and reinvigorat-

. ing the bank’s product offer-

ings/service delivery.

“The important thing is
that we continue to rein-
vest,” Mr Westlake said.
“Organisations that do not
continue to reinvest and
refresh find themselves in a
big hole that sometimes they
can’t get out of. There’s no
better example than in the

.Bahamas of that refresh-

ment, and as populations

you have to make sure you
are where the population
is.”

Mr Mc Donald, mean-
while, told Tribune Business
that “close to $200 million”
in foreign currency was
injected into the Bahamas
to boost Royal Bank of
Canada’s capital levels, fol-
lowing the decision by the
Toronto head office to con-
vert operations in this nation
from a branch to a sub-
sidiary structure in the wake

‘of the Royal Bank of

Trinidad and Tobago
(RBTT) acquisition (see |
other story on Page 1B).

“It was close to a $200
million injection of capital
into the subsidiary,” Mr
McDonald said, adding that
Royal Bank’s Bahamian
operations were still ulti-
mately owned by the Cana-
dian head office.

Mr Beneby, meanwhile,
noted the foreign exchange
reserve and system liquidity
benefits from the capital
injection. i

And, while Royal Bank of
Canada’s Bahamian opera-
tions had generated annual
multi-million dollar profits
over the years, in recent
times that income has large-
ly been staying in this coun-
try rather than being repa-
triated to Canada.

“We have not actually
taken any money out of this
economy in probably the
last four-five years, and
that’s including the FINCO
operation,” Mr McDonald
told Tribune Business.
“We’ve reinvested all that
‘money locally.”

Ross McDonald, senior vice-president of

? Caribbean banking for Royal Bank, told Tri-
: bune Business that RBTT’s Trinidad opera- —
? tions possessed many of the functions that the
? Bahamas did not, such as corporate treasury
? and product development.

“I don’t think of it as moving, but that said,

Asked about the rate of progress in inte-

“We’ve not got it all under one manage-
ment structure, and are putting all the juris-
dictions on the same system, which will be
completed this year. We’re doing other things,
maybe a little slower than originally antici-
pated, but it’s going well and we’re pleased
with what’s going on.

“Whenever you do a deal, in some cases
you accept what you get from the other com-
pany. RBTT had an aggressive plan for rolling
out technology, and we found that in was not
doable when we looked at it.”

Anti-money laundering regulations had
again tightened across the Caribbean since
the RBTT deal closed in mid-2008, and Mr
Westlake added: “The world has changed a
lot since we did the deal with RBTT, and
things we thought we would not have to spend
a lot of time on, we have had to spend time
on. ”

Conversion

The conversion of Royal Bank’s Bahamian
operations into a subsidiary, from the previous
branch structure, was part of tidying up the.
institution’s, corporate network in the
Caribbean following the RBIT deal, Mr West-
lake explained.

Royal Bank had igoked at where it could
align operations under one regulatory struc-
ture/overseer, Mr Westlake said, and assessed
what was the best financial and tax structure
possible.

Mr McDonald told Tribune Business that
the acquisition of the bank’s Turks & Caicos
operations by the Bahamian subsidiary was
part of this ongoing restructuring, adding that
the former lacked the “scale” deemed neces- .
sary to run as a standalone.

Mr Westlake told Tribune Business that
while the Caribbean had been an “important
region” for Royal Bank prior to the RBTT
acquisition, it had transformed the institution
into a pan-regional player with a presence in 20
countries and 35 land masses, most of which
were in the Bahamas.

Going forward, Mr Westlake said Royal
Bank would look to “streamline” the prod-

ucts it had inherited from RBTT, improve cus-

tomer security, enhance efficiency and cus-
tomer delivery, and “get everyone operating
on one system”.

Looking long-term, he added: “We’re pret-
ty optimistic. We’re strong in the Caribbean
and are investing for the future. We’re very
bullish that the region will pick up, and think
we will see a lot of room to grow in the coun-
tries we’re in, and expansion opportunities in
the courtries where we’re not located. We
expect to be very active over the next few
years.”

Stalled Revel
casino set to
resume work,

WAYNE PARRY,

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J.

Reeling from four years of
cutthroat competition that has
stolen nearly a'third of its busi-
ness, Atlantic City on Tuesday
got the news it has long been
waiting for: the stalled $2 billion

Finishing Revel has long
been seen as the single biggest
move the nation's second-
largest gambling market could
do to fight back against region-
al casinos popping up all
around them, as well against as
the general sense that Atlantic
City's best days were behind it.

Gov. Chris Christie made the
announcement at a bill signing
ceremony in the atrium of the
half-finished casino, whose
exterior is done but whose inte-
rior is empty. The governor
signed a rescue package for
Atlantic City, setting up a state-
supervised tourism district with
better police protection and
sanitation, and relieving the
city's 11 casinos of some of the
strict regulation to which they
have long been subject.

maximum of $261 million.
"When Revel is the success I
know it will be, the taxpayers of
the state of New Jersey will par-
ticipate in the success of it,"

‘Christie said. "The state of New

Jersey is now 20 percent part-
ners with Kevin DeSanctis on
the upside" of the project.

A spokesman said after the
news conference that the state
will not hold an ownership
interest, and has "no downside
risk." ; :

DeSanctis said a scaled-down
version of Revel will open with
1,100 hotel rooms, down from
the 1,900 originally envisioned.
He said he still intends to build
the remaining 800 rooms at
some point in the future.

When fully operational, Rev-
el will employ 5,500 people. It
will generate about 1,500 con-

Toyota offering buyouts to

“cut salariec

DETROIT

Toyota is offering buyout packages to cut the
management staff at its U.S: sales headquarters
in California, the company said Tuesday.

The announcement is not tied to a small
sales drop last year or a spate of safety recalls
that have hurt the Japanese automaker.

Offers were made to 629 people in the Toy-
ota Motor Sales U.S.A. customer services and
automotive operations groups, mainly at the
headquarters in Torrance, California,
spokesman Steve Curtis said. Toyota Motor
Sales U.S.A. employs about 6,100 people.

The buyouts are voluntary and the company
has no target number to reach, Curtis said.

Toyota was the only major automaker to
see a USS. sales drop last. year, just under 1
percent. Sales rebounded in last month and
were up 17 percent over January of 2010, a





month in which. the company was forced to .

temporarily stop selling eight models because

of defective gas pedals.

Toyota's once-invincible image has been
’ hurt by a spate of recalls that began late in
2009, mostly in North America. The recalls
now cover more than 12 million cars and trucks
worldwide. Many of the recalls involve defec-
tive floor mats and gas pedals that get stuck,
some of them suspected of causing unintend-

ed acceleration. ’

But Curtis said the buyouts are not a cost-
cutting move due to the sales decline or the
recalls. "We are very optimistic for the year,"
Curtis said, adding that the company plans to
roll out 10 new or redesigned models in 2011.
"This is the result of an ongoing review of our

organizational structure and our staffing needs

and how we best align them to meet our future

business prospects and growth," he said.
The move, first reported Tuesday by the
. trade publication Automotive News, will add °
- responsibility to the remaining managers and
improve efficiency, Curtis said. .
Workers are being offered a $20,000 pay-
ment, two weeks of pay for each year of ser-

vice, plus another 10 weeks of salary, Toyota

said in a statément.
They have to decide on the package by
March 31 and leave the company on April 28.
Curtis said he could not comment on
whether buyouts will be offered in other areas
of the company.

Senator's propose rigid spending cap

ANDREW TAYLOR,
Associated Press
WASHINGTON

Social Security, Medicare
and virtually every other fed-
eral program would face the
budget ax under legislation
unveiled Tuesday aimed at
forcing Congress to dramati-
cally cut spending over the
coming decade. The bill, co-
sponsored by Sens. Claire
McCaskill, D-Mo., and Bob
Corker, R-Tenn., would phase
in a federal spending cap of just
more than 20 percent of the size
of the economy, which they said
would wring almost $8 trillion
from the budget over the com-
ing 10 yearsedit.

Cuts of that magnitude
would have to fall heavily on
Social Security and Medicare,
the retirement programs whose
costs are being driven sky-high



by the retirement of the baby
boom generation.

The legislation doesn't actu-
ally propose cuts but instead
sets spending caps and enforces
them with the threat of auto-
matic, across-the-board reduc-
tions. The idea is that the threat
of such a meat-ax approach
would force lawmakers to make
more thoughtful cuts.

Corker said the measure is a
"legislative straightjacket, a way
of forcing Congress to dramat-
ically cut spending."

The target of 20.6 percent of
gross domestic product is the
average of federal spending
over 1970-2008.

A recent Congressional Bud-
get Office report projects
spending under current policies
reaching 24 percent of GDP,
which would require more than
$800 billion in budget cuts in
that year alone.

That is significantly deeper
than the recent proposal by
President Barack Obama's
deficit commission, which rec-
ommended raising Social Secu-
rity and Medicare retirement
ages, and cutting military pen-
sions, farm subsidies and a vari-
ety of other popular programs.
The Senate proposal sparked
an immediate uproar among
liberals who said it would force
draconian cuts in Medicare,
Social Security, the Medicaid
health care system for the poor
and disabled, and a host of oth-
er programs. They said it
ignores fundamental changes
in the country like the aging of
the population, greater-than-
inflation increases in health
care costs, and relatively recent
decisions to boost spending for
homeland security, veterans
and a prescription drug plan
within Medicare.

But just as big is the psycho-
logical boost that completion
of Revel will provide for

Atlantic City. Work began on -

the casino in 2007 before the

national recession hit and cred-"

it markets dried up. Revel ran
out of money in January 2009,
and stopped work on the inte-
rior. Wall Street giant Morgan
Stanley, the project's major
backer, pulled out in April
2010, deciding it was better to
“take a nearly $1 billion loss on
the project than see it through
to completion.

"It's extremely important

psychologically for the city,’
Christie said. "When the pro-

ject stopped, it was a real down--

er. It led to all sorts of bad con-
clusions about this place."
Nothing about Revel has
come easily. Six months before
its developers ran out of mon-
ey, and interior construction
slammed to a halt, three key
executives working on the pro-
ject died in a plane crash in

Minnesota. The city's casino’

Egypt's economy suffered a fresh

S&P lowered Egypt's long-term
foreign currency sovereign rating to

The move put the rating solidly in

the National Bank of Egypt.

The sense of panic that

gripped markets at the end of -
-Jast and the beginning of this...
‘year has abated.in recent,

weeks, as EU officials have
raised expectations for a
"comprehensive solution" to
the currency union's debt cri-
Sis.

The renewed optimism has
been most evident in the per-
formance of the euro, which
has risen around 10 cents.
since the. middle of January
to around $1.38.

And though yields, or inter-
est rates, on bonds from coun-
tries like Greece, Ireland, Por-
tugal and Spain remain high,
the European Central Bank

felt confident enough to halt
its bond purchases last week,
a key lifeline that helped calm
bond market jitters.

Though the debt crisis has
fallen out of the headlines in
recent weeks, it still is a long
way from being solved.

"When you look at sover-
eign (bond) spreads com-

pared to Germany nothing
- has changed," said Zsolt Dar-

vas,'a research fellow at Brus-
sels-based think tank Bruegel.

Investors have taken a
"wait-and-see attitude" on the
comprehensive package
promised by Brussels, said
Darvas, and whether govern-
ments are willing to take the
lid of the problems that have
haunted the region since the
collapse of Lehman Brothers

in 2008.

Proposals

There are a number of pro-

sposals. being discussed. The
‘ EU's executive Commission
‘wants’ governments to boost
“the°size’and powers of the

eurozone's contribution to the
bailout fund, the so-called
European Financial Stability
Facility.

In addition to raising the
EFSF's lending capacity to
the promised euro440 billion,
there are discussions to allow
the EFSF to buy back bonds
directly in the markets — as
the ECB has been doing —
and reduce the interest pay-
ments that bailed-out coun-
tries have to pay for their
loans.

The Commission has also
suggested allowing Greece
and other financially troubled
countries to use EFSF money
to buy back their own bonds
on the open market or from
the ECB, which could reduce
their overall debt obligations.

Germany has so far been
reluctant to put up more mon-
ey and ease the burden on

bailed-out countries, fearing:

that they will fall back into
their old spending habits.

In return, the eurozone’s
biggest economy wants all
euro states to sign up to tough
measures to boost their com-
petitiveness and cut spending.

Among the key points in
German Chancellor Angela
Merkel's package are
demands to raise retirement

_ ages in line with life expectan-
cy, stop automatically increas-

ing wages in line with infla-
tion, introduce automatic
"debt brakes" in national leg-
islation, and find a common
base for corporate taxation.

The demands — set to face
fierce opposition from many
countries and parliaments —
are set to be discussed at a
meeting of EU leaders in
Brussels this Friday, although
EU officials have said that
decisions are unlikely before
March.

Though such proposals

have given the euro much-
needed respite, there are
many analysts who think that
they will not be able to stop
Europe's debt crisis from
worsening, especially as many
countries face years of tepid
growth as governments con-

tinue to slash spending and
raise taxes to get public
finances into shape.

A particular worry is
Spain's troubled savings

' banks — the so-called cajas.

They are widely identified
as a key source of concern
that the government might

‘have to bail them out, which

would seriously strain state
finances.

Two major Spanish dailies
said Tuesday they are saddled
with around euro90 billion
($123 billion) in shaky real
estate loans.

It was a burdensome bank
bailout that drove Ireland to
seek an international bailout
last year.

Last week the Spanish gov-
ernment said it was raising the
capital reserve requirements
for banks in general and will
be even tougher with the
cajas, who could face partial
nationalization later this year.
They have already been
forced to restructure in a gov-
ernment-mandated merger
process that reduced their
number from 45 to 17.

The government has said
the cajas will need no more
than euro20 billion in new
capital to meet the new
requirements but some ana-
lysts think that estimate is too
low.

So far at least two major
Spanish savings banks or
groups, La Caixa and one led
by Caja Madrid, have said

_ they plan to create full-blown

commercial banks so they can

_lure capital and raise their

capital ratios.

Ireland's parliament was dissolved Tuesday for a long-awaited
Feb. 25 election as Prime Minister Brian Cowen exited the polit-
ical stage defending his management of the nation's plunge toward
bankruptcy.

Cowen declared a formal end to his government two months
after he was forced to negotiate a euro67.5 billion ($92 billion) loan
package from the European Union and International Monetary
Fund, a measure he had insisted Ireland did not need.

Cowen told a silent, somber parliament that his 2 1/2 years as
prime minister "have been a time of great trial and test. I believe
we have worked hard to correct past failures and to secure the
future recovery of our country."

At the end, only lawmakers from his long-ruling Fianna Fail par-
ty — expected to suffer a battering of historic proportions in the
Feb. 25 vote — stood to applaud him.

Cowen agreed to an early election, rather than trying to serve his
full term to mid-2012, after suffering a string of humiliations and
losing his parliamentary majority last month.

On Monday, Cowen, 51, announced his retirement from politics
after a 26-year career. He became Ireland's first sitting prime
minister not to seek re-election to parliament.

Twenty of Fianna Fail's other current lawmakers have taken the
same decision, fueling speculation that the party — which means

‘soldiers of destiny" in Gaelic and has won the most seats. in
every election since 1932 — faces an unprecedented defeat Feb. 25.

Recent polls have rated Cowen as the most unpopular leader
since Ireland won independence from Britain in 1922; he's leaving
office with an 8 percent approval rating. Last week he was forced
to resign as Fianna Fail leader to help boost the party's election
prospects.

The most likely victors, opposition parties Fine Gael and Labour,
are publicly committed to renegotiating terms of the EU-IMF
rescue and Ireland's commitment to insure its banks against
defaults, the policy that exposed the nation to potential insolven-
cy.

Fine Gael leader Enda Kenny decried Cowen's government as
“the worst in the history of the state." And Labour leader Eamon
Gilmore said his party was determined to overturn Fianna Fail deci-
sions "that brought down our country, that tied our state to the
sinking and stinking misfortunes of the banks, and that sold us out

- in the deal with the EU and IMF."

Cowen said the winners of the election would wield the power

to continue his government's policies of bank bailouts and deep
austerity measures — and warned that taking any other course
would lead to even greater economic disaster.

"This election will define our economic future. It will decide
whether Ireland moves forward from this recession, or whether we
prolong it or mdeed succumb to it," he said.

Ireland's economy boomed from 1994 to 2007 on the back of
heavy foreign investment and a homegrown property bubble. But
Irish banks borrowed recklessly on international markets and
loaned heavily to construction barons in Ireland, Britain and the
United States.

Builders began work on
fewer projects in 2010

MARTIN CRUTSINGER,
AP Economics Writer
WASHINGTON

Builders began work on few-
er homes, shopping centers and
other projects in 2010, pushing
total building activity down to
the lowest point in a decade.

Construction spending
dropped 10.3 percent last year,

‘marking the fourth annual
decline, the Commerce Depart-
ment said Tuesday. It fell to
$814.18 billion in 2010, the low-
est level since-2000.

And the year ended on a
weak note. Builders started
fewer homes and other projects
in December, pushing activity
down 2.5 percent for the
month.

Builders have struggled with
falling demand since the hous-
ing bubble burst, triggering a
deep recession. The downturn
sharply lowered overall eco-
nomic activity and that cut into
demand for office buildings,
hotels and shopping centers.

Analysts said harsh winter
weather had some impact on
the weak December numbers.
But other factors are likely to
keep the industry from seeing
significant gains in the early
months of this year.

Homebuilders are having a
hard time competing with the
record number of foreclosures
and declining home prices. The
budget crises at the state and
local level, along with fading
federal stimulus money, have
governments pulling back on
projects. Rising vacancy rates
and. declining rents are drag-
ging on commercial real estate
construction.

"We still have a big overhang
of unsold homes out there,"
Wyss said. "And on the non-
residential side, the question is
jobs. You don't need to build
another office building until
you get the jobs back."

For 2010, home construction
fell 1.7 percent and nonresi-
dential projects plunged 23.3
percent. Spending for the cate-
gory that includes shopping
centers dropped 26 percent.

METALS RISE ON BRIGHTER ECONOMIC OUTLOOK

_CHRISTOPHER LEONARD,
: AP Business Writer

Prices for industrial metals like copper rose as a brightening glob-

al economic outlook raised expectations for higher demand from
: the manufacturing sector.

Strong corporate earnings and rising stock indexes seemed to

i convince investors that demand will strengthen in coming months
; for metals such as palladium, used in auto parts and other manu-
? factured goods.

While the economic news is still far from glowing, a ‘moderate

; uptick in auto sales reported Tuesday was enough to stoke opti-
: mism that auto factories will be'placing more orders for palladium
: and platinum this year, said James Steel an analyst with HSBC in
: New York. Automakers reported arise in U.S. car and truck sales
; in January, with General Motors Co. reporting a 23 percent
: increase and Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc. reporting a 17.3 per-
: cent increase compared to last year.

While the results weren't spectacular, they pointed toward

: improvement through the year, Steel said.

"The trajectory is still upward," Steel said. At the same time,

strong corporate earnings reports bolitered metal prices as well as
i stock prices. The Dow Jones et 24 Average gained over 148

0.16. The Nasdaq and the

April platinum rose $32.10 to $1,833.00 an ounce, while March

palladium gained $3.45 to $823.55 an ounce. Copper for March
: delivery rose 8.85 cents to settle at $4.5470 a pound.

Precious metals also rose. Goldfor April delivery gained $5.80

i to close at $1,340.30 an ounce, while silver for March delivery
: rose 34.5 cents to settle at $28.514 an ounce.

Eninem, Jay-Z set to go heatl-to-

head at this year’s Grammy Awards

when the entertainment
industry crowns its kings
and queens of music — the
53rd Grammy Awards.

The award ceremony will be held
on February 13 in Los Angeles and
performers are expected to include
current Grammy nominees Arcade
Fire, Eminem, Cee Lo Green, Lady
Gaga, Miranda Lambert, and Katy
Perry.

One of the battles to watch will be
that between rap superstars Eninem
and Jay-Z.

While Eninem leads the pack with 10
nods, Jay-Z has secured six nomina-
tions. The two will face off in four cat-
egories: Record of Year; Best Rap
Album; Best Rap Song, and Best
Rap/Sung Collaboration.

And a8 always there is drama leading
up the awards show. Representatives
for Grammy nominee Chris Brown
’ yesterday denied reports that the star's
lawyers requested that a restraining
against him be lifted. for the awards
ceremony so he can attend the event at
the same time as his ex-girlfriend and
fellow nominee Rihanna.

Brown’s publicist told TMZ.com that
he will be not attending the Graminys
due to scheduling conflicts.

Another hot topic leading up to the
awards'is the question of the opening
act. While some sources claim it will be
Eninem, who is coming off a very suc-
cessful year with his new album
“Recovery”, others are still holding
out for the pop princess herself, Britney
Spears, to relaunch her music career
with a performance from the Gram-
my stage.

Up until yesterday there was no offi-
. cial word on the possibility of Britney
being the surprise opening act.

What is official, however, are the
nominees for 2011. Below are those
nominated in some of the most antici-
pated categories:

Reggae artist Vybz Kartel is
experiencing backlash from fans
all over the Caribbean for
bleaching his skin in an attempt

to change his appearance.

FULL OF : : ‘ :
COLOUR: n a recent interview with a
Photo of Vybz local Caribbean television sta-
Kartel hefere tion the artist said that it is
he began the ‘‘cake soap’ — which also hap-

‘alin ‘bleach: pens to be the title of one of his

ing’ process. his complexion.

In Ya Ear spoke to some ‘of
Vybz Kartel’s Bahamian fans who
said they are very disappointed. with
the star’s decision to change his looks
in this way.

CHANGING ROLES

“T do not know why someone would
actually do that to themselves. It has
been a while since he did anything to
change his physical appearance. I think
he is trying to be the Michael Jackson
of reggae. In a way I think he is trying
to crossover in the international mar-
ket and I think he is trying to look
appealing,” said one fan who wished to
remain unnamed.

“A lot of people from where he is
like to bleach their skin and I think
because he is now endorsing this new
cake soap he wants to show people
that it works,” the fan said.

Fashion for a Cause: founder
-Kendrick Kemp had this to say about
Kartel’s bleaching: “I think black
people are beautiful and strong indi-
‘ viduals, and maybe he doesn't view
it this way and wants to express

himself by changing his colour.

‘We live in a world where
everything is at our finger tips
and a land of options, so I guess
he wanted to show persons
how one can change the

colour of their skin when-
ever they desire to do so.”

When asked if he
believes the artist is only

; . using cake soap to achieve

a lighter complexion, Mr
Kemp said: “No, this dude

is going the full nine yards, it

actually looks like he soaks in

some chemical product because

I don't really see any dark areas, at
least in some of his photos.”

Candy Moore said in her opinion
no one'should ever do what Vybz Kar-
tel has done to himself.

“T love his music, but I do not love

’ what he did to his face. He literally





























“some people do just to get attention
from others is really sad. I know in

HEN he’s not stirring up controversy with his
sexually suggestive lyrics, he is doing it with his

looks better the way he was before his
complexion changed. Does he dislike
himself and the way he looked so
much that he had to change every-
thing? Black is who he is and I think
he needs to be a little bit more proud
of that,” she said.

Another fan who shared her views
on the matter with In Ya Ear was Kay-
la Dorsett.

“Vybz Kartel was ever unattractive,
now he is scary looking. He’s a natu-
rally black man, now he made his self
artificially white. Now he is defend-
ing himself, that is just shameful and
nasty. Like I say, love his music, not his

Also taking a stance on the issue,
Vybz Kartel fan Shanny Duncombe
said: “Him and Sammi Sosa and other
people who bleacu are a disgrace to all
black people.” ;

INFLUENCE

Jacklyn Frazer said the only thing
she hopes is that others are not influ-
enced by the actions of this: dancehall
artist. :

“Hopefully they’re wise enough not
to follow that trend although bleaching
is nothing new and people do it all the

. time,” she said.

Responding to the controversy, Vybz
Kartel sent this statement to Vibe. com
last week:

“T’m my own man, and as such I do
my own thing. When black women stop
straightening their hair and wearing
wigs and weaves, when white women
stop getting lip and butt injections and
implants, when bald men stop getting
hair transplants, and when people stop
getting nose jobs and cosmetic surgery
then I’ll stop using the ‘cake soap’ and
we'll all live naturally ever after.”

TTOO designs can dance from Bibli-
cal symbols to tribal art, from celebri-
ty faces to fancy floral patterns —

almost any design a person can envision,

they can have it immortalised on their skin.

For most people, a tattoo is something deeply per-
sonal, a representation of a specific aspect of their
personality or a meaningful moment in their life;
for others, it is an excellent fashion statement.

It is'a much easier task to decide on the design of
your tattoo when you are sure about the reason for
it.

Permanent body art and tattoos have been around
for centuries, but in recent years both have experi-
enced'a renewed boost.

In ‘an interview with Tribune Art, tattoo artist Lisa
Roberts of Timeless Tattoo explained that she’s
been tattooing since 1996.

Her interest in the art of tattooing comes from
being. around her brother, Cecil, and hanging around
the studio, she said.

“IT saw all of the interesting designs and the people
he met and that is when I decided to join him in his
venture of body art.”

Lisa said her brother taught her the basics, after

which she went on to perfect her'skills in Maryland,

working under the world renowned tattoo artist
Mouse Massimiano from Main Street Tattoo, now
called Pancho Tattoo, and several other greats in
the business.

“I started tattooing at the age ‘at 27 and my broth-
er and J are in partnership together at Timeless Tat-

- too. I plan on tattooing as long as the good Lord .

gives me the strength and good health to continue
this wonderful art,” she said.

Speaking about. her first experience in tattooing,
she said: “My first tattoo that I did when I came
home was great, it was something I’ll never forget
about; BEC had an island-wide blackout ‘halfway
through the tattoo. I have also tattooed celebrities,
NBA players, musicians, and even royalty ”

. “The unexpected thing I learned about tattooing is
lots of patience. Timeless Tattoo has been in business
since 1994 and my brother came up with the name,
the meaning of the name is eternal and immortal
and it is what a.tattoo should mean to the person
wearing it.”

When asked about the craziest tattoo mG has done,
Lisa said: “I pos t Th Sacto any a the tattoo art

QC Comets win their
first BAISS pennant

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

ueen’s College Comets
junior boys capped a
“Cinderella” perfect reg-
ular season on the eve of

the playoTfs with a hard fought 74-58.

victory yesterday over the Jordan. ‘}

Prince Williams Falcons. :

The home win completed. for the
Comets’ 11-0 record that gave
Queen’s College their first Bahamas
Association of Independent Sec-
ondary Schools pennant.

They join the Comets’ senior girls,
who also finished on top of the stand-
ings with a perfect 7-0 record, heading
into the sudden death playoffs that
are slated to open today at the Kendal
Isaacs Gymnasium.

“It was a very good game. Prince
Williams is a well coached team, so it
was a good game all around,” said
Comets’ coach Dwayne Smith after
he got dosed with the water in the
cooler after the game.

Smith said they will definitely cher-
ish their achievement, but they’re not
going to rest on their laurels because
they have to come right back for
today’s playoffs.

Incidentally, the two teams will
clash in the sudden death playoff
today as Jordan Prince Williams fin-

ished in fourth place at 8-3 in the:

three-way battle for second through
fourth.

In the other game played at the
Charles W Saunders High School, the
Cougars held off the St Augustine’s
College Big Red Machine for a 55-51
decision.

The Cougars and the Big Red
Machine will meet in the second ver-
sus third place finishers Thursday after
Charles W Saunders clinched the sec-
ond spot by virtue of beating St
Augustine’s College.

Although they also finished tied at
8-3, the Big Red Machine won 78-75
over the Falcons at St Augustine’s
College Monday.

Jordan Prince Williams’ coach Hor-
atio ‘Yellow’ Poitier blamed his 16-
point loss to Queen’s College to his
own mistakes.

“At the beginning, my players were
tired, having played back-to-back





SHOOTER: Tyrone Burrows can be seen in this file photo.

games,” Poitier said. “I did not under-
stand the concept that fatigue would
play such a big role in this game.

“W C played a good game. Their

coach did an excellent job with them.
My problem was preparation. I should
have allowed my boys to sit down this
morning to keep them calm and

relaxed.”
_. Despite the fact that they will have
to bounce right back today and play
again, Poitier.said he’s not too con-
cerned because “one. thing my team
has is heart.”

“We were down by more than 10
points in the third quarter and we still

managed to come back and tie the —

game. The fight is in us, so I think we
will be all right.” .

Daejour Adderley and Tyrone Bur-
rows stepped it up as they helped the
Comets to break away from a 50-50 tie
at the end of the third to blow the
game open on a'12-0 run for a 62-50
advantage to'start the fourth quarter.

Adderley connected on nine of his
game high 24 points and Burrows con-
tributed eight of his 17 in the fourth.
Gerrio Rahming added nine and, after
experiencing some cramping prob-
lems-at the start of the game, Obi
McKenzie came back to assist with
three.

The Falcons also had their prob-
lems as Rashad Rolle cramped up
throughout the game. Trailing 70-58,
he had to be lifted off the court when
his muscles tightened up.

Rolle finished with 14, but it was
Waymond Demeritte who was red hot
in the second half. Demeritte had a
side high 21 points, including 12 in
the: third and seven in the fourth to
keep Jordan Prince Williams in the
game. Oatman Lightbourne had 15.

The Falcons led just once in the
game when they opened a 4-0 lead in
the first quarter. But that was short
lived as the Comets rebounded to
surge ahead 8-5.

Queen’s College went on to extend
their lead to 15-7 at the break, but
they slowly pulled away in the sec-
ond to surge ahead 35-25 at the half as
Adderley and Burrows led the charge
with eight and six points respectively.

Although they went ahead 45-34
early in the third, Jordan Prince
Williams didn’t give up. The combo of

' Demeritte, Rolle and Lightbourne

canned some big shots for a 45-45 tie
before it ended up 50-50 at the final
break.

But to start the fourth, the Comets
went on a roll thanks to consecutive
baskets from McKenzie, Adderley
and Burrows as they went up 57-50
and they never looked back.

THE 2011 Boil Fish Bowl
has been dubbed unfinished
_business and, with much bad
blood between the game’s
opponents, the stage is set for
an epic championship finish
on the gridiron this weekend.

The Commonwealth Amer-

between the Orry J Sands

is slated to kick off 1:30pm

At the league’s media day
hosted at the site of the cham-

be decided by which team

“executes better on the field.

"The game will be a
blowout," he said. "There has
been a lot of talk, but that's all
it is, just talk. The team that is
better prepared and comes
out and executes better."

Veteran receiver and tight
end Reggie Knowles offered
another lopsided prediction.

"The score, 30-14. I'll give
them about two touchdowns
just because of Mike Foster
and what he can do and what
he thinks of on the offensive
side of the ball," he said. "As
you know, the controversy
with us last year started when
we had to attend the wedding
of a teammate so since then
the Pros have been saying
that we are their brides. Well,
Saturday there will be a wed-
ding out here on.D W Davis
field and they will be our
women."

The Pros were represented

by just one player on media

day, O'Neil Pratt, who said
fans should expect another
Pros repeat despite the confi-
dent words of the Jets players.

"I heard a lot of pretty
words today, but words won't
get anything done on the
field. They have a lot of con-
fidence but we know how to
step on confidence and kill
it," he said. “Whether we win
by six, seven, or 37, expect the
Pros to be back on top as
champions again."

A championship game,

"

ing, will finally be decided on
the field by the league's top

sons.

coach Obie Roberts.

"It's all about execution.
The Pros are a post season
team so we know they will
bring their best to the table
but we will be ready. The time
for talking is done, and it’s
time to get out on the grid-
iron and to decide this." ,

Each team had a difficult
road to the final showdown.
The Pros faced the second
ranked V-8 Fusion Stingrays,
who finished the regular sea-
son with a 6-2 récord, and
came out on top with a sur-
prising 36-6 win.

The pennant winning Jets,
who finished the regular sea-
son at 7-1, defeated the fourth
seeded Defence Force
Destroyers, who finished at
2-6 in the second semifinal.

The Stingrays were the only
team to place a blemish on

the Jets’ regular season record

with a 14-6 win on December
4 last year.

National Basketball Association HIGHLIGHTS

OPEN SHOT: Nuggets small forward Carmelo Anthony shoots over New Jersey
Nets’ point guard Devin:Harris in the fourth quarter of Monday’s game in
Newark, us J. Anthony: led all scorers with 37 points. The Nets won the game 115-
99. ;



By BRIAN MAHONEY
AP Basketball Writer

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — The New

Ez Jersey Nets are apparently in Carme-

lo Anthony's past.

As for the future, is it New York?
Denver? Another team?

"I don't know. I really don't know,"
Anthony said Monday night.

What he can say is that he was will-
ing to meet with the Nets manage-
ment about a deal. He still won't
reveal whether he would have agreed
to actually play for them.

"I would take that meeting. As far

as anything else, I really can't speak
on that," Anthony said.
_ Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov
pulled his-team out-of trade discus-
sions with the Denver Nuggets before
it ever got to that point. Though he
said it was because he was unhappy
with the way the talks had gone, there
were reports it was because the Nets
knew Anthony would have refused to
sign a long-term extension that would
have been a prerequisite for New Jer-
sey to go through with the deal.

"I really don't know where that

came from, as far as if I was to come |

here the extension wasn't going to be
signed. I really don't know who start-
ed that," Anthony said. "There's a lot

- of things that are being said out there

that I don't know where they came
from. Sources, I guess. As far as the
extension, if that trade were to go
through, who knows what would've
happened. I can't really answer that."

So for now Anthony remains with
the Nuggets, who lost 115-99 to the
Nets in their first meeting since trade

talks collapsed for the second time”

thisseason. 14
Anthony said he doesn't know how
much longer he'll be with the Nuggets

_— or even if he'll ever leave. But he

said he hasn't spoken recently with
general manager Masai Ujiri.and team

president Josh Kroenke, who have to
decide if they want to move their
superstar before the February 24 trade
deadline or deal. with this situation
straight into the offseason.

"When something starts brewing,
or something starts going on, then I'm
pretty sure Masai and Josh will come
to me and let me know what's going
on," Anthony said.

Before the game, coach George
Karl said he still believes he might be
coaching Anthony allseason. ~

"I've always felt from the very

_ beginning of the season that the

chance of that happening was greater
than all you all thought," Karl said. "I
just felt that way from the first day of
training camp, from September, I've
always felt that way."

Asked his basis for that belief, Karl
said: "Just my experiences in the
NBA. Just making a big trade in the
middle of the season is not an easy
thing to do."

The Nuggets and Nets have tried
twice, but both multi-team deals fell
apart. It was after the most recent
one, which also would have involved
the Detroit Pistons, that Prokhorov
instructed his management to call off
their pursuit of the All-Star forward.

New Jersey had been willing to
offer an attractive package to the
Nuggets, including No. 3 overall pick
Derrick Favors, point guard Devin
Harris and multiple first-round draft
picks. Denver may not find another
offer that good and instead may opt to
just hold onto Anthony, who would
then have to decide if he wanted to

- risk free agency next summer when a
new collective bargaining apIeeMient

could cost'him millions.
“"The CBA is in the ‘back of my

mind, but as far as being afraid to play
this out, I'm not," Anthony said. "If

that's what it's going to take, then so

be it. I'm with that."

But the risk could be substantial.

He is under contract for about $18.5
million next season, and the three-
year extension worth about $65 mil-
lion that Denver has offered him
would kick in starting with the 2012-13
season, meaning he'd be scheduled to
earn about $83.5 million if he signs
this season.

Owners are seeking to slash con-
tract values and lengths, as well as
guarantees. Should they get their wish-
es and Anthony were to leave for New
York, his reported preference, he
could be looking at a maximum three-
year deal worth perhaps less than $40
million.

"If I sit here and tell you I'm willing
to lose $15 to $20 million, then I'd be
lying to you. But at the same time,
this has never been about money,”
Anthony said. "In my career so far I
think I'd have made enough money

that I can focus on just trying to win a

championship. That's the only thing
that's on my plate and on my mind
right now."

The Nets hoped he would think he
could do it in Brooklyn, where Antho-
ny was born and where they are
scheduled to move in the summer of
2012. The Nets posted three pictures
of their Barclays Center in the hall-
ways of the Prudential Center, one to
show that they've broken ground in
their new home and two that demon-
strate what the finished product will
look like.

"That was interesting," an amused

‘Anthony said.

He insists he's not thinking about
where he'll be playing on February
25 or next season, and he had no trou-
ble focusing on basketball Monday,
when he scored 37 points while being
booed every time he touched the ball
in the early going.

"He's our foundation, he's our

--horse and we're having a damn good

year, so he should be given a lot of.
credit for that," Karl said.

LONDON (AP) — Laurent Koscielny head-
ed a second-half winner as Arsenal came from a
goal down to beat Everton 2-1 on Tuesday and
keep the Gunners firmly in the Premier League
title race.

Everton striker Louis Saha opened the scoring
in the 24th minute with a contentious goal, after
Seamus Coleman threaded a ball behind Arse-
nal's defense.

TV replays indicated that Saha was standing at
least a meter offside before he supplied the fin-
ish. However, the goal was allowed to stand as
the ball had come off Koscielny as the defender
tried to clear, before it reached Saha. ,

Two goals in the space of six minutes turned
the game around, though, for the home side.

Andrei Arshavin equalized in the 70th when
captain Cesc Fabregas floated a ball toward the
area. Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell's back-

-header landed in the path of the Russian and he

fired past Tim Howard.
Koscielny supplied the winner in the 76th after

whipped in a corner, with the center back rising
above the Everton defense to head past Howard.

Rodwell nearly scored an equalizer in the
83rd, but his header from a corner flashed just
wide of the far post.

The openings stages of the first half lacked
rhythm, but Arsenal was starting to gain a
foothold in the match right before Saha's goal.
Arsenal nearly scored in the 16th when Van
Persie's clever back heel while running away
from goal inside the area found Fabregas, but the’
captain shot wide.

Theo Walcott was through on goal in the 22nd,
but his shot from close range was saved by
Howard with his feet.

Arsenal began the second half with more a
cutting edge; Tomas Rosicky, Van Persie and
Abou Diaby all coming close. But with the fin-
ishing lacking precision, Everton appeared to,
be on the brink of its first away win against Arse-
nal since a 2-1 victory at Highbury in 1996.

Arshavin and Koscielny changed that to send
Everton to only its second defeat since Novem-
ber. Arsenal remains in second place, five points

behind Manchester United, after the leaders

beat Aston Villa 3-1.

MANCHESTER, England
(AP) — Wayne Rooney's
first-half double guided
unbeaten Premier League
leader Manchester United to a
convincing 3-1 win over Aston
Villa at Old Trafford on Tues-
day.

The England shiker opened
the scoring after just 48 sec-
onds‘and added a second on
the stroke of halftime to set
United on its way to a 12th
win in 13 home matches this
campaign.

New signing Darren Bent
reduced Villa's deficit in the
58th minute but Nemanja
Vidic secured the points for
United in the 63rd, keeping
the 18-time champions five



points cléar of second-place.

- Arsenal.

The goals were Rooney's
first in open play at Old Traf-
ford this season, moving him
onto five in total in the league.

"Goals always help strik-.

ers," United manager Alex
Ferguson said of Rooney.
"He's always had a great
appetite to play. It's inbred in
the boy and he got his Tewards
eventually."

The win equaled United's
club record of 29 straight
league matches unbeaten.

"What happens in the run-
in is that you keep knocking
off the games,” Ferguson said.
"What we have to do i is keep
the momentum going."

Former United States goal-
keeper Brad Friedel, at the
age of 39 years and 259 days,

was celebrating becoming the —

lead. . ‘:

the team's momentum.

Patrice Evra and top scorer
Dimitar Berbatov wasted fur-
ther chances before Rooney
pounced for his second
moments prior to halftime,

cross to slot home.

Villa pulled a goal back
through Bent, who joined the
central England club this
month for a fee that could rise
to 24 million pounds ($39 mil-
lion), when he tapped in a
cross by Stewart Downing.

verge of making
Copa de Rey final

MADRID (AP) — Barcelona and
Real Madrid are on the verge of meeting
in the Copa del Rey final for the first
time in 21 years.

Both teams head into the return leg of
the semifinals Wednesday holding the

_ advantage. Record 25-time champion

Barcelona leads Almeria 5-0 before
Wednesday's game, and Madrid won 1-
0 at defending champion Sevilla.

The domestic cup competition could
be Madrid coach Jose Mourinho's only
chance to win silverware this season and
the club's first return to the final since
2004. That would be welcome news after
Madrid dropped seven points behind
leader Barcelona in the league.

"The team is in good shape, motivated
to get to the final," Mourinho said Tues-

day. "It's been many years since Madrid

reached it. We're one game away from
reaching it. It won't be easy but we want
to get to the final."

Madrid, which has won all 16 games
played at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadi-
um this season, hasn't won any trophy
for more than two seasons. It won its
17th — and last — Copa del Rey in 1993.

_Mourinho left midfielders Fernando
Gago, Sergio Canales and Pedro Leon
out of the squad, while the team is like-
ly to be without defender Pepe, who is
nearly recovered from a leg injury.

Newly signed striker Emmanuel Ade-
bayor is almost certain to play after mak-
_ ing his debut as a substitute in Sunday's
' 1-0 league loss at Osasuna, a defeat that
has made Madrid's bid for a first league
trophy since 2008 even more challenging.

"January was a difficult month with
us having played nine games and while
there are players who are used to that,
there are some that aren't because in
the past years Madrid has been elimi-
nated in the first round of the cup," the
Portuguese coach said. "The problem

-from.a mental standpoint is it's more

taxing to play twice aweek."
The final is scheduled for April 20 —
four days after the pair meet in the

league. The last time the two rivals met —

at that stage was 1990, when Barcelona
won 2-0.

Sevilla coach Gregorio Manzano
included his two transfer signings in the
team for the trip to the Spanish capital —
Chile midfielder Gary Mendel and Croa-
tia international Ivan Rakitic. Regular

goalkeeper Andres Palop was a also left

out in favor of Javi Varas.
"Tf everyone is. saying that Madrid has

- lost its chance.at-winning.the league,

which I don't agree with, and that reach-
es the locker room and they know there
are only two titles left to win — the cup
and the Champions League — then their
going to want to beat us," Manzano said.

Most of Barcelona coach Pep Guardi-
ola's news conference Tuesday was
directed by questions about a potential
matchup with Madrid and the league

‘Tace.

"We don't have time to think about

‘what could happen, we can't stop. We'll

rest four or five players this week
because an international game is coming
up and then the league and European
matches come up," Guardiola said.
"Thinking about the treble in January
is a waste of time. So the objective is to
keep competing and to keep working."

Barcelona defender Carles Puyol
could be rested as well as Spain team-
mate Andres Iniesta, who has a left
shoulder problem.

Almeria will count on Sofiane
Feghouli for the match at the Juegos
Mediterraneos Stadium after the French
player arrived on-loan from Valencia on
Monday.

Almeria also lost 8-0 at home to
Barcelona in the league this season.





Indoors.

The 39-year-old Ivanisevic and
Croatia's top-ranked player Marin
Cilic lost 7-6, 6-4 to Filip Polasek

and Igor Zelenay of Slovakia.

Ivanisevic won Wimbledon in
2001 and retired in 2004. He made
a return to promote the tourna-

ment in his home country.

"Once is enough, and I won't be

doing it any more," Ivanisevic said.
' Earlier, Alex Bogomolov of the
United States defeated Croat Anto-
nio Veic, 2-6, 7-6 (4), 7-6 (2), and
Russian Igor Kunutsyn topped
Jaroslav Pospisil of the Czech
Republic, 6-3, 6-2. Daniel Brands of
Germany upset home favorite Ivo

Karlovic 7-5, 6-7 (3), 7-6 (1).

Radek Stepanek advanced to the
second round by defeating Austri-

Opening lead — king of clubs.
Declarer obviously cannot con-
trol the distribution of the defenders’
cards, which may or may not be
favorable to his cause. What he can

‘ do, however, is to try to find a way to

improve his chances on those hands
where an unfavorable lie of the cards
may exist.

Take this case where South went
down one but should have made the
slam. He won the club lead, cashed
three trumps and the ace of spades,
then led a diamond to the queen and
finessed the jack of spades.

East took the queen and returned
a club, and that was the end of that.
Of course, had declarer seen East’s

spade holding, he would have cashed
the king and made the slam. But it
would not be fair to criticize South
for failing to guess that East had the
doubleton queen of spades.
Declarer’s real error came ear-
lier, when he missed an opportunity
‘to give himself an extra chance. He
should ‘have drawn trumps and then
led a club. There was no need to try
an early spade finesse; it could be
taken just as well later on, if neces-
sary.
West would win the club and,
let’s say, return a spade. Declarer

’ takes the ace and ruffs a club, on

which East shows out. South now
cashes the Q-A of diamonds and a
trump, producing this position:

Declarer plays his last trump
West discarding a spade, dummy a
club and East a diamond. South now
leads a spade, and West follows with
the ten. Thanks to the earlier plays in
the club suit, declarer knows tha
West’s remaining card is the queen o
clubs, so a spade finesse can’t possi
bly succeed. He therefore puts up
dummy’s king, catches East’s quee!
and so makes the slam.
