Man accused of rape claims
he was molested as a child

A 34- -year-old man was arraigned in Magistrate’s Court
yesterday charged with two counts of rape.

Samaco Wallace was arraigned before Magistrate Der-
rence Rolle-~Davis in Court Five, Bank Lane.

It is alleged Wallace raped a woman on Wednesday, Jan-

-uary 12, and another on Wednesday, February 2.

Wallace was not represented by an attorney and was not
required to enter a plea to the charges — although he indi-
cated that he wanted to plead guilty.

A preliminary inquiry will be held.

Wallace claimed that he had been molested as a child by
a now deceased relative and told the magistrate he wanted

_ help as he suffered from depression.

“I really need help. Sometimes I just feel so depressed,”
Wallace told the magistrate as he stood in the prisoner’s

dock.

Magistrate Rolle-Davis ordered that he receive pre-trial

counselling and evaluation.

Wallace was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison.
His first trial is scheduled for June 6 and 7.

In defence of the officers,
another Tribune source said:
“We have instances in that

immigration beat up, bloody

would you run and leave an

“People complicate these

said. Questions were raised by
residents about the statutory

the use of a crowbar to break
down a door is “not accept-

However, the source said cir-
cumstances must always dictate
the tactics used by officers.

“There are certain levels of
actions that are required at dif-
ferent stages. It depends on the
kind of information you have,”
said a Tribune source.

“When we are just conduct-

Obama looks from Egypt to US economy

WASHINGTON (AP) — For now, the
fever appears to be breaking in the Egyptian
crisis, allowing President Barack Obama to
turn back to pressing U.S. economic trou-
bles and the impending political battles over
solutions to America's huge and threatening
debt burden.

The overt subtext every day from now
until November 2012 also will display an Oba-
ma who is carefully positioning himself for
election to a second term. So far, his han-

dling of the crisis in Egypt, while less than.

sure-footed, has found broad bipartisan sup-
port — a political bullet dodged. But the
economy remains wobbly, and therein lies
the key to re-election of America’ s first black
president.

He faces a Republican drive to cut spend-
ing that begins in earnest this week, building
on November elections that returned the par-
ty to-the majority in the House of Represen-
tatives on campaign promises of smaller gov-
ernment and reducing the federal debt.

’ There is broad agreement among politi-
cians of both parties that the country can no
longer sustain a federal deficit projected to
reach $1.5 trillion this year, and an accumu-
lated debt of more than $13 trillion.

The lines will be drawn this week as the

House begins working on a bill to keep the:

government in operation after March 4, with
Republicans demanding that funding be $35
billion lower than what was enacted for last
year. That would tide the government over
through September. The new budget year
begins October 1.

Preparing for the battle, Obama's budget
director, in an article in the New York Times
on Sunday, pointed to spending cuts in three
popular programmes in states and cities as
examples of the "tough choices" ahead in

’ the White House budget blueprint that also
will propose lower spending overall. At the
same time, Obama wants to direct money to
new initiatives. He sends his spending pro-
posal to Congress on February 14. *

The president already has called for a five-
year freeze on discretionary spending, except

for national security. That will reduce the ©

deficit by more than $400 billion over 10
years, according to the White House.
Budget director Jacob Lew, however, cau-

tioned Republicans against indiscriminate -

budget cutting in what he called areas critical
to long-term growth, including education,
innovation and public works. Such reduc-
tions, he said, "would stifle the economy just
as it begins to recover. That, in turn, would
deprive us of one of the most powerful drivers
of deficit reduction, a growing economy."






Obama has been recalibrating his posi-
tions on the economy since the Republican
landslide in November. The Democrat has
shown a willingness to compromise and has
shaken up his White House, replacing key
advisers with figures seen as more business-
friendly. That in turn has led to a significant
rise in his approval ratings with Americans.

He speaks Monday at the Republican-
friendly Chamber of Commerce, a major foe
in the last election. It will be his first speech to
the organization which, not four months ago,
he attacked for failing to disclose donors to its

_ huge, $32 million congressional political cam-

paign, "Their lips are sealed," Obama said at
the time, "but the floodgates are open."
Now, facing the new reality created by
the November vote, White House officials
say Obama's speech will not break new poli-

cy ground. In his radio and Internet address.

Saturday, Obama said businesses have an
obligation to stay in the United States, hire
American workers and invest in the nation's
future.

' "That's the message I'll be bringing to
American business leaders at the Chamber of
Commerce on Monday — that government
and businesses have mutual responsibilities,
and that if we fulfil these obligations togeth-
er, it benefits us all," he said.

. The message is not limited to the Cham-
ber. Obama already has met with top U.S.
executives in December to push them to put
some of the billions of dollars they are‘hold-
ing back into circulation to. create jobs./He has
compromised with Republicans on tax cuts.
That gained him grudging support from-big
business.

Obama also promises a review of govern-
ment regulations, something that is at the
top of the business agenda, particularly the
financial sector that is facing a swath of new
tules. ¢

The president's renewed focus on the
economy, however, could easily be knocked

aside by events in Egypt. While’ the crisis

seemed to ease as the government began
talks with the opposition and gave ground
on major points, the crisis is not over. A
wrong step by the government and its security
forces, balkiness in moving forward toward

new elections and the departure of President .

Hosni Mubarak could easily tip the balance
back to bloody violence.. That would force

. Obama back into trying to manage a deep cri-

sis abroad — one that is critical to American
policy throughout the Middle East and
beyond.

sreater heights

EDITOR, The Tribune.

On page four of Thursday’s .

edition of The Tribune was a
letter to the Editor, under the
heading: “Sir Lynden’s name
should not be in textbooks
under racism.” I cannot agree
more, for it was none other
than Lynden Oscar Pindling
who, after the late Sir Etienne
Dupuch presented his histor-
ical anti-discrimination reso-
lution to parliament that
brought an end to racial dis-
crimination in this country,
started a reverse racial dis-
crimination campaign among
the black masses, that saw this
once tranquil nation split wide

apart. He, Pindling did not -

bring about the end of racial

discrimination, he just
reversed it and took it to
greater heights.

The PLP politicians, blind
supporters, gofers, paid writ-

ers, and henchmen of the late .

Lynden Pindling, take a
delight at the slightest oppor-
tunity in attempting to hood-
wink our younger unsuspect-
ing generation, who were yet
unborn when Lynden Pin-
dling was racially and politi-
cally dividing this nation and
corrupting its citizens, that he,
Pindling was responsible for
bringing about all of tlte
changes that occurred during
that era. It has been often said

that the only original idea that ©

Lynden Pindling ever came
up. with was a booklet he
wrote titled “One Man’s
Dream”. in’ 1965, which
prompted a march on his res-

© idence’ by a number of cabinet

ministéers'and others seeking
his resignation.

The end of discrimination
in public places came about
as a result of Sir Etienne’s
Resolution, without an act of
Parliament. Pindling had

nothing to do with it, in fact
he was not even there.;I was
on duty in the House along
with Corporal John Crawley.
That event is written in detail
in my Memoirs. Majority
Rule came about in 1967 asa
result of the late Randol
Fawkes and Alvin R Braynen
who formed a coalition with
the PLP who had run a dead
heat with the UBP in the gen-
eral elections, UBP 18, PLP
18, Pindling and the PLP, con-
trary to published lies, did not
win anything. It was Fawkes
and Braynen who brought
about the event by joining
forces with the PLP.
Pindling’s infamous act of
throwing the mace out of Par-
liament in 1965 and Milo’s fol-
low the chief act by throwing
the hour glass, was in my
opinion, an act of desperation
and frustration in an attempt

to draw attention to them-

selves. I was on duty at par-
liament on this occasion, as a
chief inspector, in fact, the
mace fell directly in front of
me and broke in _ two.
Retrieved the bottom portion;
but before I could reach the
top portion, it was picked up
by a PLP supporter and
thrown into the crowd where

‘it disappeared.

In 1963 The Bahamas, ata

‘Constitutional conferénce in

London was granted Internal
self government by Great

Britain, this brought about

ministerial government with
its head being designated Pre-
mier. This change came into
effect in 1964, with the late
Sir Roland Symonette being

_ named the first Premier, Pin-

dling was the second and last
to hold that title. This move
was made in preparation for
the country going indepen-
dent.

If the UBP had won the
1967 election, the country
would have been independent
by 1970. Great Britain was
shedding all of her Colonial
territories at the time. In fact
during the 1967 and ’68 elec-
tions Pindling and the PLP
campaigned against Indepen-
dence telling the voters that
the white folks would be tak-
ing them back into slavery. In
the government’s Speech
from the Throne in 1968 Pin-
dling promised he would not
seek independence. It was

: after winning the 1968 elec-

tion and learning that inde-
pendence was a foregone con-
clusion that he started harping
on independence for the

Bahamas to fool the masses

which he succeeded in doing.
There are many in this nation
who, through ignorance and
blind loyalty to a political
despot, believes.the blatant
lie that he, Pindling, was
responsible for the country
achieving Independence, he
was not, the only role he
played was being in the right
place at the right time.

I congratulate the letter
writer, Ms Asiah Munnings,

for having the fortitude and |

courage to put the lie to these
too often repeated feats that
through the years are attrib-
uted to have been achieved
by Pindling. What can be
termed his chiefachievements
are the corrupt state and
moral decay of this once
Christian nation.

Dear Minister,

Re: Discriminatory prac-

I am the owner and opera-
tor of Taxi # 860. On Saturday
past, God blessed me with a
two hours tour. My tour start-
ed from the Hilton Hotel at
11 am.

We proceeded to Fort

I attempted to drive through
the gate of the fort to take my
guests (four of them) on a
ride around it. ;

A female security officer
stopped me and told me that I
was not allowed to drive
through. I asked her why and
she told me that only Majestic
Tours and The Bahamas Taxi

ve through.

I told her that this was dis-
criminatory and I would obey
her, but on Monday, I shall
call upon you to break down

find'a way to make up to the

extended their tour for an

result of that tour on Satur-

Lots of rumours — but how about investors?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I found it interesting reading the Neil Hartnell story that there
are rumours that a Middle Eastern group were rumoured to be

making offers for the Port.

Was it not the Minister of State last week also rumoured that
there was.a group looking at the Harcourt property, Royal Oasis?
Then there was the statement that the group proposing a large
development at Smiths Point, land outside of The Port which

GBDEVCO owns. Editor, can we only deal with rumours and no ~

investors with money, old fashioned cash in the bank?
Surely the Port should have issued a release denying or con-
firming as should the local rep for Harcourt and GBDEVCO?
How long was it for Baha Mar to get to a position where it
eventually was funded — 2005 through 2010 — the unemployed
can’t wait that long so surely the investment policy should be — if

you ain’t got money don’t apply!

Headlines sell newspapers and nothing else — rumours can’t

make a sandwich.

ited Grand Cay, Abaco last
,, week with the intention of
=| again confirming that the
’ water is safe for human con-

-£ Health Organisation and UK
% guidelines.

5b This follows repeated claims

fe by Opposition PLP chairman ,

i: Bradley Roberts that the
water is toxic.

». “I- have confidence in the

ration, that it will do.whai is in
the best interest of the
Bahamian people, in regards
to the supply of water,” Mr
Neymour said.:

The Grand Cay settlement
was first occupied in the 1920s
by visiting fishermen from

Grand Bahama, who used it,

as a temporary base. Today,
it is estimated that there are
about 450 residents. on the
island.

According to WSC general
manager Glen Laville, the RO
plant came in operation in
November 2010 and, after sev-
eral days of operation, the

supply developed an odour as .

a result of Hydrogen Sulphide

_.(H2S). in, the supply wells.

The presence of Hydrogen
Sulphide is not an “uncom-
mon” occurrence for RO sup-
ply wells in the Bahamas and
it is considered an aesthetic
consideration, not a health

“risk, he added.

Under WHO guidelines,
there is not even a concentra-
tion limit for this compound
in potable water, the brief
said.

“You cannot harm yourself

with Hydrogen Sulphide in
the water,” Mr Leville said.
“Hydrogen Sulphide as a gas
is dangerous and that was
what was reported in the
media; but to try and link the

- dangers of Hydrogen Sulphide
in it gaseous form and in
potable water are two differ-

ent things.”

“We have taken steps to:

resolve that (Hydrogen Sul-

phide odour) through chlori- -

nation, ozonation, aeration
and that seems to be working

- well,” Mr. Laville said. “Right

now. we have no more odour

left in the water.we supply.”

“Probably about 25 per cent
of the feed water wells (in the

Bahamas) have it to some lev-

hydrogeologist Dr Richard
Cant said of Hydrogen Sul-'

phide. “You see that. there is
probably a lot of rotting veg-

lot of stuff in there.

please, if there are any par-»

ticular concerns, residents can

contact us and we will be:

Beneby said. ;

Mr Laville added that:
recently, in the media, there. -
.was a report of bacteria in the | ©
water and the Corporation. .
investigated the claim imme- .
diately, as its primary concern : ©

is the safety of its customers.

‘Such concerns lead ‘to the --

corporation taking-their own
samples from several locations
in sanitary containers within
24 hours of the report.
“We are taking our own

samples because we question ey

the integrity of the procedure
used to take the previous sam-
ple that was reported on,” Mr
Laville said, referring to 4
sample the PLP chairman
claimed to have had tested by
a private firm in Nassau.

“When you start to deal.

with health and safety con-

have to be very careful about

“We will) be sampling —

throughout the day and take

Minister Neymour added:
“The main concern’by the

whether or not the sample was

“THE BAHA MAR PROJECT.

4500 BAHAMIAN
CONTRACTORS
TO BE HIRED
FOR BAHA MAR
CONSTRUCTION

FROM page one

_ Construction on the
Commercial Village is
expected to begin early in
the second quarter of
2011, said Mr Ingraham,
work which will be award-
ed solely to Bahamian
contractors while work on
the new West Bay Street
should begin by the end of
this month.

The amount of work
_ available comes after the
government last year
negotiated an increase in
construction contracts
allotted to Bahamians, to
$400 million from $200

million during a high-level q3

meeting in China, said Mr
Ingraham.

"As a result of the dou-
bling of contracts to be
executed by Bahamian

“firms; the number of -:
Bahamians.to be engaged

on the project during con- :

struction is likely to be as
many as 4,500," he said.
A sizable portion of |

work on the core element —

of the project also will be
-sub-contracted to locals,
‘the nation's chief added.

‘The amended HOA also
‘mandates that Baha Mar
create and sustain a learn-

-ing institution for its .
employees — the Training
and Service Academy — to
give extensive instruction
24 months before the
resort's hotels open. After
the property begins busi-
ness, the school will be.a

“permanent fixture intend-
ed to boost the quality of
service given by Bahami-
ans in ‘the hospitality
industry.

"The academy is to be
permanent offering ongo-
ing training opportunities:
for employees and
prospective employees,"
said Mr Ingraham.

An $8 million training
programme — facilitated
through the Bahamas
Technical and Vocational
Institute and the College
‘of the Bahamas — has
already been established
to train and certify labour-
ers.

Mr ingrahami alo com-
. mended Baha Mar Chair-

man Sarkis Izmirlian's
“unwavering dedication'to
the project even after its
initial partner Harrah's
Entertainment pulled out
in 2008. The developers
secured a new financial _
partner — China Export
Import Bank and China
State Construction — and

. received formal approval

from the People's Repub-
lic of China last year.

Three luxury hotel oper-
ators have signed on to the
$2.6 billion development —
Rosewood, Morgan's, and
Hyatt — who will make
capital investments of $10
million by the first two |
while the latter will inject
$37 million.

Mr Ingraham boasted
that the adjusted Heads of
Agreement signed in 2008
enhanced Government's
financial benefits while
slashing concessions
agreed to in the 2005
HOA under the Christie °
administration.

- In the amended 2008

HOA Government:

1. Refused Baha Mar's _
request to permit addition-

~ al deductions from annual

casino licence fees by
another 14 years.

2. Refused additional
‘special concessions on
casino taxes for three
years.

3. Refused to provide
$40 million in co-operative
marketing for the relaunch
of the Cable Beach area.

4. Mandates that Baha
‘Mar and JV Company pay

the government $17.686
million for the Cecil Wal-
lace-Whitfield Building
and allows for the transfer
to government some 2.259
acres of replacement land

FIRM OBLIGATED TO PAY
GOVT SI7M FOR CECIL

WALLACE WHITFIELD CENTRE

, BAHA MAR will be obligated to
pay government $17,686,000 for the
Cecil Wallace Whitfield Centre, which
will be demolished to make way for the
luxury development.

Baha Mar will also convey.to the
government a 2.259 acre parcel of land
on which the new West Bay Street will
sit.

The parcel in question begins where.
the southern side of West Bay Street _
and the eastern boundary of the West-
ward Villas Subdivision meet.

With 90 days notice from Baha Mar,

the government will vacate and convey
_ the Cecil Wallace Whitfield Centre

(CWWC), turning it over to the project
company subject to the lease between
the government and Scotia Bank.

Baha Mar is not expected to occupy
or. use the CWWC for any purpose.
However, demolition on the building
will begin within 30 days after con-
veyance of the CWWC.

The building is named after one of
the founding members of the Free

' National Movement and one of the
‘party’s most distinguished leaders, Sir

Cecil Wallace-Whitfield.

THE $2.6 billion Baha Mar project
requires collaboration between govern-
ment and the developer for the comple-
tion of various road and utility improve-
ments.

Under the company’s Heads of Agree-

ment (HOA), the government, with par- ,

ticipation of the Baha Mar Development
Company and “for the benefit of the
Bahamian public — will complete
improvements to the infrastructure of
New Providence and the Cable Beach
area.”

Footpaths

According to the HOA, the Baha Mar
Development Company has agreed to
complete a number of road improve-
ments, including constructing a new John
F Kennedy Drive connector road (the
“JFK Connector”), and diverting West
Bay Street. The company will also pro-
vide suitable landscaping, lighting, sig-
nage, drainage, footpaths and jogging

. trails.

It is estimated that the improvements
to road networks will cost around $90
million — $45.3 million of which the gov-
ernment will reimburse to Baha Mar

-along with $2.8 million which is the total -

cost of the JFK connector.

Baha Mar will bear the cost of the
relocation of all above-ground power
and utility lines and poles along the new
JFK connector road and will maintain
the existing electrical facilities servicing
the Cable Beach area during construc-
tion of the public infrastructure works.
The company will then re-establish these
facilities on the new West Bay Street.

Under the HOA, the government
must also facilitate expansions and
improvements to various public utilities.

The expansion of BEC and BTC capa-
bilities in the area is required to supply
the project with a secure and uninter-
rupted electricity supply and GSM
mobile telephone roaming services for
residents and visitors.

A new sub-station (electrical genera-
tion, transmission and distribution facil-
ity) will be constructed by Baha Mar. |

The HOA holds that the Baha Mar
company has agreed “to pay all costs
associated with the design, construction,
completion, commissioning and con-
necting of the new substation.”

The company also will be responsible -
for the decommission of the old Leisure
Time Sub-station once the new station is

_ complete.

The Baha Mar project with also
require the co-operation of government
utility companies in releasing designs
for proposed works and approvals of
completed works, to ensure the compa-
ny is completing the project in a “timely
manner.’

tising contract for phase 1 of the new Nassau
airport preparing to open in early March.

“Mr. Don Robinson, President of Baha Mar

invest in the new airport.

- “T was delighted to have the time to get to
know him. He has a vision for the Baha Mar
project which will be very beneficial to the
Bahamas economy.”

Mr. Richard English, Senior Vice President,
sales and Marketing (Baha Mar), commented:
“Bahamas Airport Advertising has invested in
the most modern digital technology we have |
ever seen. ,

“The ability to advertise instantly at the Nas-
sau Airport will be a major factor in promoting
all the incredible products, services and brand-
ing that will be necessary in making Baha Mar
very successful in the Bahamas.”

Mr. John Bethel continued: “The response
from the Bahamian business SOR Unity has
been overwhelming.

“We are 90 per cent sold out in the first three
days of opening our office at Phase 1 of the new
airport. I personally am very proud of the BAA
team who have put together one of the best air-
port advertising programmes that I have ever
seen in the world.

“Bahamians are going to be extremely proud

of this fantastic new airport.”

matching basis, to the tune of
$20,000,000.

The campaign will be dedicated to

Other resorts in the Cable Beach
area of New Providence will be invited
to participate in the campaign on a
fund matching basis in amounts to be
determined by the government.

casino at Baha Mar, government will,
for an eight-year period, contribute $4
million a year towards the cost and
expense of the marketing activities of
the resort, the newly-tabled Baha Mar
Heads of Agreement states.

The marketing activities will be
determined in collaboration between
the government and Baha Mar and
administered by the resort.

The $4 million contribution by gov-
ernment will be going toward direct
costs and will exclude the cost of
salaries paid to Baha Mar employees.

It’s most urgent

By JOHN ISSA

Iss



NOW that ocean
freight is on the move
from East Bay Street to
Arawak Cay the redevel-
opment of downtown
Nassau must occupy the
front burner. The other
major projects in New
Providence are moving
along. Albany has —
opened and the second
phase is about to com-
mence. Baha Mar has
announced a date for -
ground breaking. In less
than three months the
first containers should be unloaded at Arawak Cay:
The new terminal and other amenities at the LPIA are
rapidly progressing to completion. Smaller projects
like the new shopping mall in the west are under con-
struction.

This now leaves the other most important project,

_ the redevelopment of downtown as the urgent priori-
ty. : f
What make this project even more important than
the others I mentioned is that it will have a greater
direct impact on the daily lives and psychological out-
look of the Nassau community. The revival of the
heart of the Capital City will uplift the national pride
and confidence of our people. It will also revive the
downtown economy and boost Cruise tourism. Addi-
tionally it will have a very positive impact on the land
based tourism industry as well because it will immea-
surably improve the image of Nassau,as a destination.

Even if I am only half right, the revival and redevel-
opment of downtown should not be left to move along
at its own pace.

The country can’t afford it. One way of accelerating
the development is creating.a defined special econom-
ic zone incorporating that area which the Government
‘determines to include in the downtown redevelop-
ment project. Within this economic zone there should
be a single administrative and planning agency which
would have the authority to deal with all planning —
approvals and business licensing. -

This Agency should also assist foreign investors in
the zone with obtaining necessary approvals. These
will fast track development projects within the zone.
All elements of this project should be made the
responsibility. of one Ministry so as to cut through red
tape.

A necessary element which will light a fire under
investors would be special tax incentives for a limited
time, say five. vears. These could include relief from
import duties for construction within the zone, relief
from-transfer taxes and even relief from the business
license fee for the first five years of businesses creat-
ing new employment. This would allow the early birds
to get the worm.

BCP issues ‘clarion call’ for
2012 Christian candidates

THE Bahamas Constitution
Party wants to find 39 Christian
men and women to represent
the party’s message and carry
its banner in the 2012 general
election.

Each candidate vying for the
party’s endorsement must be
of the Christian religion, have
strong personal faith and con-
victions, and possess “moral
fortitude and integrity”,
according to a statement issued
‘by the BCP yesterday.

It said: “While no person is
perfect, their life must be in
order and they must be able to,
withstand the questions and
scrutiny of the candidate
screening committee and a
basic inquiry.”

The party assured all
prospective candidates that the
results of its investigations will
be strictly confidential.

This comes as the party

“announced plans to revolu-

tionise the way campaigning is
conducted in the Bahamas.
BCP interim leader Ali
McIntosh said: “Despite what
seems like a mighty force of

the governing Free National —

Movement, the outward facade
of the momentum of the Pro-
gressive Liberal Party , the
rhetorical pretense of a third
party alliance, the Bahamas
Constitution Party has not
changed its message or its man-
date of going forward in the
2012 general election with its
full slate of candidates.” °

Ms McIntosh said the nature

to carry banner in election

_ of the candidate selection

process in the major political
parties, “where friends recruit
friends, and only the most
devoted party loyalists. are
included,” has cheated the elec-
torate out of having the best
choice of suitable candidates.

This, she said, has over the
years resulted in a low stan-
dard of debate in the House of
Assembly and the poor perfor-
mance of some MPs.

“Consequently, the BCP has
resorted to changing the game
plan, in order to affect a dif-
ferent result. We have orches-
trated a more fair, equitable
way to bring forward the most
eligible and suitable persons
willing to serve their country,”
Ms McIntosh said."

She said the party is extend-
ing an “open appeal” to mem-
bers of the public, asking them
to consider becoming BCP
standard bearers in the 2012
general election.

In the interest of promoting
gender equality, the party
wants half its candidates to be
women. Out of the 41 sitting
MPs, only five are female, Ms

_ McIntosh noted.

Meanwhile, she said, the
majority of registered voters

are women.
“These statistics reflect that
despite the presence of women

as ‘power breakers’ in the elec-’

torate, women are not power

sharers with men in nearly -

equal proportion in the politi-
cal leadership.of the country.”
Ms McIntosh said the party
plans to appoint a 13 member
candidate selection committee,
to vet hopefuls in time for final
ratification by the summer.
“This independent panel will
provide three levels of inter-

views and litmus testing, before -

the candidate is officially
approved and endorsed,” she
said.

As far as criteria is con-
cerned, aside from being Chris-

tian, each candidate must be a
“strong intellectual person”,

able to speak to issues and pro-
vide written contributions con-

cerning the views of their. con-

stituents:

Prospective candidates must .

also have a “personal vision”

for the Bahamas, and be pre-._.-
pared to contribute to the~
development of the nation: ~

Hopefuls must also be famil-

iar with Part 3, Article 46, 47,
48, 49, 50,51 of the Constitu-

fications for members of par-
liament and the Composition
of the House of Assembly.

Finally, those vying for can-
didacy must have a strong
commitment to.“the preserva-
tion of the next generation”,
and hold the conviction that
“the Bahamas is the inherent
right of Bahamian citizens
first”, as well as the “God-giv-
en legacy of unborn genera-
tions”.

Disappointment at lack of church

support for

THE co-ordinator of the National Par-
enting Programme said she is disappoint-
ed that few churches responded to her call
to participate in improving family life in
the Bahamas.

Cheryl Carroll said many churches

ignored the invitation to take part in a ~

specially organised training initiative, even
though the sessions are free of charge and

participants are free to use the skills they be

acquire. however they wish.
. She noted that while the response from
churches was dismaying an interest was
expressed by some of the other. organisa-
tions contacted, particularly Urban
Renewal centres.

“We need churches to get involved
especially those in areas where there is

an Urban Renewal centre,” said Mrs Car-_

roll. “We target those areas because we
want fo connect Urban Renewal and the
churches.

“We could use the pastors, lay workers

-and those persons working in the urban

renewal centres as facilitators.”

The training, which begins on Febru-
ary 16, qualifies participants to work as
facilitators for the NPP, and Mrs Carroll
said the programme still needs mote peo-
ple who have experience working with
families, churches or community organi-
sations.

Anyone. interested is asked to contact
Mrs Carroll, who is also a senior. probation
officer, at the Rehabilitative and Welfare
Services Office located in the Abaco Mar-
kets Building on Thompson Boulevard
before Friday, February 11.

’ Individuals choosing to take part in the
training will join those who are already
facilitating parenting classes at the Reha-
bilitative and Welfare Services Office as
well as at Her Majesty’s Prisons and the
PACE programme for teen mothers, Mrs
Carroll explained.

In addition, an eight week training pro-
gramme is being run for St Anne’s School
parents at the request of Pastors Henry
and Ann Higgins of the Creative Christian

These additional classes are. Fachiovie

the programme’s objective, of expanding
into the communities, Mrs Carroll said.
“Once parents have the information,
that information is power and will help
them know how to deal with their: chil-

dren, because problems in the homes spill
- into the school or the community; so it is .

~almost a preventative kind of thing.”

The training for new facilitators will
take place over a period of five months,
from 9am to 5pm, but as most participants
work, sessions will take place three, four or
five consecutive days per month, Mrs Car-
roll said. °

Although there has sway bebe training

Bishop Eldon:
pastor, carer
and listener

Bahamian to teach there. He spent many years
making an impact in Grand Bahama as parish
priest. A local school is named in his honour.

He was consecrated Bishop Suffragan of
New Providence on June 24, 1971, and became
Diocesan Bishop in April, 1972, serving in that .
capacity for 24 years until his retirement in
1996. ms

Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said: “Bish-
op Eldon leaves a significant legacy not only in
the Anglican community but in the annals of a
young nation ‘in which he was the first local
priest to become prelate, having assumed that
high church position fully a. year before we
gained Independence in July of 1973. .

“Bishop Eldon has been rightly praised for
his role in-bringing about the full Bahamiani-
sation of the Anglican Church in The Bahamas
as more than 50 Bahamians were trained as
priests on his watch, reducing, and indeed elim-

- inating, the need for Anglican clerics to be
recruited to this Diocese from abroad.” ;

In 2005, Bishop | Eldon suffered from recur-
rent pneumonia problems with blood: poison-
ing, respiratory and heart problems. He first
went on medical. ventilation, or life support,
at that time.

While his condition was once e stable enough
for home care, for the past two years, he was
cared for in hospital i in a comatose state.

“Bishop Eldon’s voice was silenced by long
years of illness but the message and legacy of
this high, holy man remains strong and relevant
today. He was an advocate for good, for.schol-
arship, for social.advancement, for human
decency, arid for Christian charity. We hon-

’ our him in his passing and hold him up as most
worthy of emulation,” said Mr Ingraham.

‘ “Bishop Eldon caused new congregations
to be established in new suburbs around New
Providence and the Family Islands, construct-

-ed new churches and repaired and renovated
others. throughout the island communities of
our country. Bishop Eldon ‘had a special affin-
ity for Family Island communities and was a
great supporter of the: development of repre-
sentative Local Government,” he said.

’. For many in the Anglican diocese and across
the Bahamas, Bishop Eldon left an “indelible
imprint”.

. Philip Davis, Cat Island, Rum Cay and San
Salvador MP, said: “Today we pay tribute to”
the late Bishop Michael Eldon for his selfless
service and commitment to God and Country

_. which have reached even beyond the bounds of
this nation. Bishop Eldon's ministry indeed

*-fotiched the world, and engendered growth in:
the Church that gave birth to.a nation in this
partofthe globe...

itual mentorship and modeled devotion in
building up humanity are wholesome teach-

_ ings which have truly guided our nation for-

FNM ‘has built vibrant
shareholding society’

Statement released by governing party

WHILE the Opposition
talks about economic empow-
erment, the Free National
Movement has in fact, built a
vibrant shareholding society
in which all Bahamians now
enjoy greater ownership of
the national economy and
more personal financial
opportunities, the. FNM said

in a press statement last .

’ night.

The statement said that
“this includes the offering of
shares at the new port at
Arawak Cay which will help
in. the revitalization of
downtown, boost our
tourism industry and pro-
vide a modern and more

efficient port for the flow of ©
goods through New Provi-

dence.”

It noted that the “Opposi-

tion continues to talk about
the new port but never got
around to actually building
one.”

Forty per cent of, the
shares at the Arawak Cay
Port will-be held by the
Government, 40 per cent

will be held by 20 private.

companies and 20 per cent
will be made available to the
Bahamian public, the state-
ment said.

The FNM said that sv aatt

tially 60 per cent of the
shares at the port will be
held between the govern-

ment and individual share--

holders.

“Rather than press state-
ments and posturing on the
matter of affording Bahami-
ans access to shares in vari-
ous public and private con-
cerns, the Opposition may
wish to put its record on the
table instead of endless
talk,” the FNM said.

“Sadly, its record does not
match its rhetoric.or the
considerable achievements
of the FNM in building a

shareholding society.” ,
The FNM said that it
“helped to empower indi-
viduals, families, pension
funds, unions, institutional
and other investors to pur-
chase shares in a broad
range of private, public and

joint venture companies. .

This has made hundreds of

millions of dollars of assets. :

Any govt relocating Arawak Cay Port
would have to pay all relocation costs

FROM page one

Assembly yesterday, two penalty
clauses have been added in the
event of such an action.

Clauses 5.1.9, and 5.1.10 explain
that if the port and depot lease for
the APD were to be broken prior
to its 45-year lease, “the govern-
ment will reimburse to APD all

and “compensate APD for all
buildings, leasehold improvements
and immovable equipment at the
Arawak Cay Port and/or Glad-
stone Road Depot as the case may
be.at the greater of their net book
value or fair market value.”

Calling these line items “uncon-
scionable,” Opposition MP Ryan
Pinder said these clauses are
included to act as an “impediment to any
change in opinion” that any subsequent gov-
ernment may have.

Although stressing the PLP will govern

‘under the rule of law, Mr Pinder said they

also will be mindful of any unconscionable
provisions in “this agreement.”
Mr Pinder added that the PLP was also trou-

-bled by a number of other aspects of the

MOU, particularly that clause 4.3 gives the
private shareholders who would only own 40
per cent.of the company the majority of the
seats and the chairmanship of the board while
the government would only get. one, and the
public no seats at all.

Mr Pinder said that with a public- private
sector agreement like this, there should be a
scenario where the government and the APD

_ get three seats each, while the public share-

holders get the final board seat.
“Why the public cannot have a say at the

- board level does not make sense to me,” the

Elizabeth MP said.
“This entire document is a document for
the sole purpose to ensure that these private



RYAN PINDER

sector special interest groups
make money. There are provi-
sions in here that say that the
board of directors can change
prices to guarantee a 10 per cent
return. There’s provisions in here
that effectively make this a 90-
year agreement — a 45-year term,
plus a 45-year option.

“So everything in this document
ensures that the private share-
holders make a profit and are pro-
tected. You have this very uncon-
scionable provision that protects
this port for 20 years, there cannot
be another port established in
Nassau or 20 miles from the
shoreline of Nassau for 20 years.
That seems to be another uncon-
scionable provision.

“Who is to say that another
port in Carmichael would not be
a good idea to service other countries? With
this type of provision it is very narrow-minded
in that either you don’t believe in the eco- .
nomic expansion of the Bahamas and a trade
agenda for the Bahamas because you are iso-

‘lating yourself to one small port, or it is clear-

ly a provision to protect the private share-

‘holders in the port,” he said.

' the APD are as follows: Arawak Stevedoring

ment has signed with Cable & Wireless for

the sale of 51 per cent of BTC," said Prime

Minister Hubert Ingraham during a brief sit-
ting of Parliament yesterday.

When. contacted for comment, Bahamas
Communications and Public Officers Union
President Bernard Evans said.he "could care

‘less" that the long-awaited documents will be
made public today.
‘Mr Evans represents line staff at the state--

run company and since the MoU was signed
has led a charged debate against the looming
sale.

He added that he and Bahamas Communi-
cations and Public Managers Union President
William Carroll were invited to meeting with
the government set for 9am in their capacity as
members of the Privatisation Advisory Com-

“ mittee. Up to press time, the union heads were

unsure if they would attend. He claims the
two were not invited to the committee's last
meeting.

"Between now and tomorrow morning we
will make up our minds on whether or not we
will go to the meeting. They want to now
involve us before they table something in the
House but look at the time, it's the last hour,
what kind of input can we make now?

"I could care less about what's in the MoU.
Our position still stands, if you withheld it all
this time obviously you were not intending
for us to contribute in any. meaningful way.
It's just a rubber stamp."

He suggested that the Government will have -

a huge price to pay if it goes ahead with its

’ planned sale.

"If Government goes through with its plan
they have to.deal with an entire workforce

* that's not harmonious with them, to say the

least. The court case is one. arm, I'm glad it's

starting to come tos a head where we can
invoke all of those who said they will support
us. u

Meantime, parliamentarians are not expect-
ed.to debate the controversial MoU today as
Prime Minister Ingraham has said it will be
put before the Bahamian people two weeks
before any scheduled debate will happen i in the

‘House.

This week, leader of Opposition Business in
the House of Assembly Obie Wilchcombe said
the Progressive Liberal Party is all set to air
concerns over the sale when the MoU is tabled.
Top on the list of the PLP's demands will be to
know what part of the $210 million sale price
is hard currency and whether the sale will sim-
ply move the telecommunications provider
from one monopoly to another.

"We have heard the concerns of the work-
ers, the concerns of the unions, we have seen
what we believe is a draft document of the
Memorandum of Understanding, so we have
been preparing ourselves for whenever the
government brings it to the House," said the
West End and Bimini representative.

"We think the government should not give
any company 51 per cent," he added.

The MoU was signed with the regional
telecommunications provider in December
causing uproar from the unions representing
BTC workers and the Opposition who accused
the Government of "secretly" negotiating the
deal because the document was not released
immediately.

Umbrella trade unions the National Con-
gress of Trade Unions of the Bahamas
(NCTUB) and the Trade Union Congress
(TUC) also backed BTC's unions.

In January, the BCPOU and BCPMU filed
a joint action in the Supreme Court question-
ing the government's right to sell the assets of

the company.

Eqynt demonstrators entertain to Keep morale high

CAIRO
Associated Press

TWO rows of men greet
demonstrators at the main
entrance to Tahrir Square,
clapping as people enter,
and chanting in the
rhythms of a traditional
Egyptian wedding proces-
sion.

"We are becoming big-
ger!" they shout. "God is
Great!"

square, musicians stroll, a
man reads poetry to the
crowd and vendors hawk
potato chips, tea, hot food

. Tahrir Square, the scene

-of deadly battles with fire-

bombs, rocks, horses and
camels just last week, has
taken on a carnival mood
in the past few days as
demonstrators try to estab-
lish an enduring presence,
complete with food and
entertainment, in their
campaign to demand
Egyptian President Hosni
Mubarak's ouster.

CAIRO
Associated Press

THE artifacts from the Egyptian Museum
damaged by looters will be restored over the
next five days, the country's antiquities head
said Monday.

Zahi Hawass also said that steps were
being taken to reopen Egypt's famed
archaeological sites, which have been closed
since unrest seized the country two weeks
ago.

During huge anti-government protests
on Jan. 28, looters climbed a fire escape
and broke into the museum, damaging a
number of items, including two mummified
skulls from the Late Period.

Originally the skulls were thought to have
been attached to mummies, but Hawass
said they were being used to test a new.-CT
scanner and were not from the royal mum-

my collection.

Among the 70 objects damaged was also
a statue of King Tutankhamun standing on
a panther and a wooden sarcophagus from
the New Kingdom period, dating back more
than 3,000 years ago.

The museum, which is right next to the
massive protests still taking place in down-
town Cairo, is now being guarded by the
army. Initially, when the demonstrations
began, civilians formed a human chain to
protect the building.

The museum is home to the gold mask of
King Tut that draws millions of tourists a
year, and houses thousands of artifacts span-

ning the full sweep of Egypt's rich Pharaon- °

ic history.

Hawass also asserted that the nearby
archaeological digs Saqqara, Memphis and
Abu Sir were secure following es of
looting there.

WEBSITE: CHECHEN
REBEL LEADER CAMS
AIRPORT BOMB

‘ MOSCOW
Associated Press

A WEBSITE affiliated
with Chechen rebels has
released a video in which
insurgent leader Doku
Umarov claims responsi-
bility for last month's
deadly suicide bombing
at Russia's largest airport
and threatens more .

bloodshed if Russia does 4

not leave the region.

The Kavkaz Center
website says it received
the video late Monday. It
was not clear when or
where the video was
recorded.

The Jan. 24 attack at
Moscow's Domodedovo
Airport killed 36 people.

Russian investigators say

the bomber was a 20-
year-old man from the
Caucasus region that
includes Chechnya, but
have not released his
name or other details.
"You see this special
operation carried out by
my order ... more spécial

operations will be carried |

out in the future,"
Umarov says in the video,
wearing a camouflage
uniform and a skullcap.

"Among us there are
hundreds of brothers who
are prepared to sacrifice
themselves" in further
attacks, Umarov says in
the video. "We can:at any
time carry out operations
where we want."

Over the weekend, the
website released another
video in which Umarov
also threatened more
attacks, saying 2011
_ would be "the year of

blood and tears."

Chechen rebels have
fought two full-scale wars
against Russian forces _
since 1994. Major offen-
sives in the second war
died down about a
decade ago, but the insur-
gency has continued with
small clashes in Chechnya
and in neighboring Cau-
casus republics.

The rebels have
claimed responsibility for
an array of terrorist , -
attacks, including last
year's double suicide
bombing of the Moscow.
subway system that killed
40 people.

Umarov, who seeks to_
create a Caucasus emi-
rate independent from
Russia and governed by
Sharia law, said in the
earlier video that he
could call on 50 to 60 sui-
cide bombers if neces-
sary. :

The blast at Domode-
dovo, south of the Russ-
ian capital, raised strong
concerns about Russia's
strategy against the insur-

_ gents and about its ability
to protect against future

attacks. The day after the ©

bombing, President

Dmitry Medvedev said

that terrorist attacks in

the country increased in

2010, although he did not
cite figures. .

The bomb went off in
the waiting hall of the
international arrivals area
at the airport. As in many
other airports, there were
no security procedures to
go through in order to get
into that area.

Medvedev initially
lashed out at airport
management for poorly
guarding the area, but the
airport's operator
responded that the Russ-
ian transport police are
responsible for security in
that part of the airport.

In the next few days,
Medvedev fired several
top transport police offi-
cials and ordered height-
ened security measures at
all the country's main
transport.hubs, including
major railway stations.

ce





as Medvedev was prepar- — :

ing to speak at the presti-
gious World Economic

Fo in Davos, Switzer-
“fand, where h he ho ws

reassure foreign investors
that Russia was safe and
attractive.

The bombing forced
him to make an abbrevi-
ated trip to Davos, where
he declared that the
attack would not crush
Russia or its drive for
investment.

backed bomber’s release

LONDON
Associated Press

BRITAIN'S previous
government did "all it
could" to help Libya win
the release of the only man
convicted of the Pan Am
bombing in Scotland in
1988, though it insisted the
decision was made entirely
by Scottish officials,

Britain's head of civil ser-.

vice said Monday. |
However, Sir Gus
O'Donnell, the leader of
the Cabinet Office, also said
he found no evidence that

_the central government had

put any pressure on Scot-
tish authorities to grant the
release.

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi,

‘the only man convicted in

the terrorist attack, .was
granted a compassionate
release from a Scottish
prison in August 2009 on
the ground that he was suf-
fering from prostate cancer
and would die soon.
He is still alive.

_ The bombing of the U.S.-

bound. Pan Am jumbo jet
killed 270 people, most of
them Americans, and al-
Megrahi's release has been
criticized by members of
the U.S. Congress.

Prime Minister David
Cameron, leader of the
British coalition govern-
ment that took power in

May, asked O'Donnell to’

conduct the review.

: » Cameron has strongly criti-

cized al-Megrahi's release
in the past. —

Cameron's office said he
discussed the issue with
U.S. Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton on Saturday
at a security conference in
Munich and that they had
"strongly agreed" the pris-
oner release was a mistake.

"He was convicted of the

biggest mass murder in
British history, and in my

WASHINGTON
Associated Press

THE USS. said Monday it would
recognize an independent Southern
Sudan and review its designation of
Sudan's government in Khartoum
_ as a state sponsor of terrorism after

that African nation accepted the

south's vote to secede.

Election officials said Monday that
more than 98 percent of ballots in
the Jan. 9 vote were in favor of inde-
pendence, meaning Southern Sudan
will become the. world's newest

country in July.

"I congratulate the people of
Southern Sudan for a successful and
inspiring referendum in which an
overwhelmingly majority of voters

Barack Obama said in a statement.
"I am therefore pleased to announce
the intention of the United States
to formally recognize Southern
Sudan as a sovereign, independent

state in July 2011."

Obama called it "another step for-
ward in Africa's long journey toward

justice and democracy."

Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton commended the Sudan
government for accepting the out-

come.

Assurance

Clinton said in a statement that
the designation will be lifted if
~ Sudan does not support terrorism

_for the preceding six months and
it will not do so
in future. It must also fully imple-
ment a 2005 peace agreement that

ed a two-decade civil war

House of Commons.

O'Donnell said British
policy regarding al-Megrahi
developed after former
Prime Minister Tony Blair
negotiated a prisoner trans-
fer agreement with Libyan
leader Moammar Gadhafi
in 2007.

Policy then developed ~

that the government should
"do all it could" to facili-
tate an appeal by the

ibyans to the Scottish gov-
ernment for Megrahi's
transfer to be released
under the prisoner transfer
agreement or on compas-
sionate grounds, O'Donnell
said.

"Nonetheless, once Mr.
Megrahi had been diag-
nosed with terminal cancer

. in September 2008, (gov-
. ernment) policy was based

upon an assessment that
U.K. interests would be
damaged if Mr. Megrahi

were to die in a U.K. jail,"

O'Donnell said.

"The development of this
view was prompted, follow-
ing Mr. Megrahi's diagno-
sis of terminal illness, by the
extremely high priority
attached to Mr. Megrahi's
return by the Libyans, who
had made clear that they
would regard his death in

Scottish custody as a death

sentence and by actual and

implicit threats made of
severe ramifications for

U.K. interests if Mr.
Megrahi were to die in
prison in Scotland."

Blair's successor, Gordon
Brown, met Gadhafi in July
2009,.a month before the
release, and had said he
could not interfere in the

- Scottish decision, O'Don-

nell said.

The U.S. Senate Foreign
Relations. Committee held
hearings last. year on
whethér the British-based
oil company BP had sought
al-Megrahi's release to help
get a $900 million explo-
ration agreement with

between the north and south that

killed more than 2 million people.
Clinton urged both northern and

southern leaders to continue to work

together toward full implementa-
tion of the peace agreement and
post-refetendum arrangements, to
ensure they become two "viable
states living alongside each other in

peace."

The mainly Christian south and

| mainly Muslim north must still nego-
tiate citizenship rights, oil rights and
border demarcation.

Budget

Virtually all of southern Sudan's
budget comes from oil revenue, and
the north wants to maintain fuel sup-
plies from the south.

Sudan's President Omar al-Bashir,

crimes in the western Sudan region

Libya moving. Former BP
Chief Executive Tony Hay-
ward refused to testify
before the committee last
year.

BP has acknowledged
that it had urged the British
government to sign a pris-
oner transfer agreement
with Libya, but stressed it
didn't specify al-Megrahi's
case. O'Donnell said he
found no evidence that BP
pressured the Scottish gov-
ernment to release al-
Megrahi.

"It's clear to me, those
who think there was some
sort of conspiracy cooked
up between BP, the British
government and the Scots

that's not right,"
Cameron said.
The bombing aboard the

Pan Am 747 jumbo jet on
Dec. 22, 1988, killed all 259
people aboard the aircraft
and 11 people on the
ground in Lockerbie town,
where much of,the wreck-
age fell.

Al-Megrahi was convict-

ed by a Scottish court in.
2001 and sentenced to 27

years in jail.

O'Donnell said Blair's
and Brown's governments
had been "primarily moti-
vated by a desire to build
on previous success in nor-
malizing relations with
Libya and to safeguard the
substantial gains made in
recent years, and specifical-
ly to avoid harm to U.K.
nationals, to British com-
mercial interests and to
cooperation on security
issues."

"The desire to see such a
result developed and inten-
sified over time as Mr.
Megrahi's health declined
and the imminence of his
death appeared greater,"
O'Donnell said.

“Very early on when the

being made there was casual

there’s nothing currently being

ere are eight sim- -

. ple reasons why
the Bahamas
Telecommunica-

tions Company (BTC) must go
through the wringer of total
change. I found them one week
day morning by calling these
numbers listed on the ‘Service

the time of day.)

Answered, but no response giv-
en to accounts query.

Service indeed! . :

The wringer of change cho-
sen by the Prime Minister is the
sale of 51 per cent of BTC to
Cable & Wireless Communica-

tions (CWC). Opposition to -

this course has sprung from

many quarters, some intelligent, °

others hysterical. In the latter
category can be found our King
of Bombast, PLP chairman
Bradley Roberts, who without.a
shred of evidence claims that
“someone” is getting a 3 per
cent finder’s fee from the CWC
deal, resulting from a ‘bogus’
privatisation process. The

unsinkable Punch columnist, |

Niki Kelly, is another member
of this faction. Seeking a new
cause after herfailed campaign

to torpedo*Baha Mar, she has.
striffig/fOgethet a farrago.of .

. irrelevant claims about conflicts
of interest, job advertisements,
and timing of bids. So CWC did
not submit before the original
bid deadline. So what? After
Julian Francis’ and the Privati-
sation Committee found all the
submitted bids (including one
Bahamian) inadequate, why
should they not invite a pro-
~ posal from a new party?

Neither of these two “opin-
ion-leaders” put forth any pos-
itive views about what should
be done with BTC, but simply
attacked CWC. Presumably
they believe our telephone
company does not a need a new
owner, and can simply be left in
the hands of present Govern-
ment-controlled management,
which has had 40 years to fix
the service failings listed above
- and many others known to
any telephone user.

Other opponents of the sale
take a more thoughtful
approach. Shayne Davis, in a
lengthy letter to The Tribune,
does not object’ to privatisa-
tion but insists that it must be a
Bahamian privatisation. The
crux of his argument is that
“there are enough talented and
serious Bahamians, and enough
capital around, to get a local
group in place who will
improve the fortunes of BTC”.
This is an unrealistic view of
what makes for an effective
company. A long and coherent
history of corporate teamwork
and expeftise is needed, not
’ simply a cobbling together of
money and miscellaneous indi-
viduals, no matter how “talent-
ed” and well-intentioned. _

A similar approach was tak-
en by Bernard Evans, president
of the Bahamas Communica-
tions and Public Officers
Union, accepting that some
form of privatisation was
inevitable and desirable.

In the course of a long and
friendly interview, he had plen-
ty of criticism for the BTC
Board of Directors for holding
back progress, and gave his own
vision of the company’s future.

He drew me a diagram show-
ing that the Government should
retain ownership of infrastruc-
ture, and that four privately-
owned companies should be
created, each separately taking
on the service functions of land-
line, mobile, data, and Inter-
net.

It’s an intriguing prospect
that might work in an ideal
world, but the actualities of
Bahamian management and
finance would impose inter-
minable delays in creating such

a complex structure.
And, of course, he remains
implacably opposed to CWC.
Without using any of the lame
and emotive, jingoistic phrases
such as “working for our colo-
nial masters” or “becoming
slaves of the white man again”,
he produced several specific
objections. to their controlling
ownership, citing bad labour

policies (the loss in the Privy ©

Council of an employee com-
pensation case in Antigua), and
a weak financial position, cit-

ing a “Sell” recommendation.

for the company’s publicly trad-
ed shares by a London stock-
broker.

Mr Evans first told me he
would refuse to negotiate with
CWC on labour issues, but
when I pressed him on what he

would do if the transaction was |

actually completed, he smiled
and said: “T’'ll cross that bridge
when I come to it.”

CWC is not a perfect com- *

pany.
- Debt

My own conversations with
independent securities analysts
in the UK and the US revealed
opinions that the group may
have excessive debt, may be

unable to. maintain its*highrdiv- :

~sidend:ywield, and suff Te-

_ly (rom TONS S fi e s and
the“effects of thetrecession
throughout the Caribbean.

One analyst remarked on the -

loss of cellular phone business
in Jamaica to their more nimble
competitor, Digicel, while
pointing out that recent CWC
management changes should be
able to partially recapture this

loss. David Shaw, CWC’s chief:

executive for the Caribbean

‘area, admitted to me that
Jamaica had been a sore spot
where they had learned a les-
son.

But against these few nega-
tives must be balanced the fac-
tors that make CWC the -best
candidate to take control of
BTC. Larger and stronger tele-
coms companies, such as Veri-
zon in the US, or Telefonica in
Spain and Latin America, have
shown little interest in the
Caribbean and have no track
record in the region. CWC was
created in March 2010 as a sep-
arate company, quoted on the
London Stock Exchange, when
it took its long-existing inter-
national operations and split
them off from the parent UK
company that does a very dif-
ferent type of business.

CWC’s international range
is impressive. With ultimate
headquarters in London, it
operates through four semi-
autonomous divisions:
Caribbean (now re-branded as
‘LIME’), with about 34 per cent
of group revenues totaling $1.16
billion; Panama, about 25 per
cent; Monaco and various
island nations, about 25 per
cent; and Macau, about 15 per
cent. The cross-fertilization of
ideas, technology and human
expertise among these varied
markets would be hard to
match, certainly not by any
stand-alone Bahamian compa-
ny, as urged by local enthusi-
asts. In the Caribbean, CWC
operates in 13 national markets,
competing in all of them, and in
all cases dominant. in landline
networks.

This structure permits CWC
to undertake inter-island pro-
jects such as submarine cables,
the latest one linking Jamaica
and islands of the eastern
Caribbean. The group’s size
provides it with advanced tech-
nology and volume discounts
that will reduce the high prices
for products and services now
paid by BTC customers.

CWC has had periodic
labour problems, but has
always continued to negotiate
with the unions, and none of
its Caribbean markets experi-
ence crippling shutdowns or

Friday D-Day for $12m AML offer

FROM page 1B

ness yesterday.

Expressing confidence that Mr Finlayson’s so-called ‘hos-
tile takeover’ would not succeed (see other story on Page
_ 1B), Dionisio D’ Aguilar told this newspaper he had been
informed by the Securities Commission of the Bahamas that
the acquiring group had 10 working days from the announce-
ment of its bid to issue documents setting out all relevant
details to AML Foods’ 1300 shareholders.

Given that Mr Finlayson and his investment vehicle, Trans-
Island Traders, unveiled their $12 million offer on Monday, Jan-
uary 31, this gives them until Friday, February 11, to meet the
10-day deadline which Mr D’ Aguilar said had been outlined by
the Securities Commission.

Once Mr Finlayson’s tender offer is in play, Mr D’Aguilar
said AML Foods’ Board of Directors had the right to issue
Directors’ Circular detailing its thoughts on the bid and its
details, something he said would “absolutely” happen.

The tender offer, the AML Foods chairman added, would
remain open for 20 working days, after which Mr Finlayson and
Trans-Island Traders had the option to either acquire the
shares tendered (something he will almost certainly do if the 51
per cent threshold is met) or reject them.

“We were told by the Securities Commission that it had to be
in by Friday,” Mr D’Aguilar said of the Finlayson tender offer-
’s release. “They have 10 days from the day they made the ini-
tial announcement, so the tender document is supposed to
come out on Friday. That’s 10 business days.

“Then, I believe the share offering remains open for 20 days,
and then they have the right to take up the shares or not take

up the shares. There’s no guarantee they'll take it up. They have |

the right to actively refuse the offer.”
The AML Foods chairman indicated the Securities Com-
mission wanted to adopt strict deadlines and timescales to
avoid any unnecessary, long-lasting impact on the market for
the company’s shares as a result of the takeover bid, which Mr
Finlayson has branded as “definitely not hostile”.

After the tender offer documents are issued, AML Foods
then has the right to respond, commenting on aspects of the bid
and telling shareholders whether it thinks they should‘accept or
reject it.

“The Board has a right to issue a Directors Circular which }
outlines what we think of the offer - is the price reasonable, and ;
other aspects, such as whether there’s good management, is the :

business plan in the right direction etc...
respond,” Mr D’Aguilar said.
Telling Tribune Business that the Board would “absolutely”

. We have the right to :

respond to the details of Mr Finlayson’s offer when they were

released, he added: “We'll harp on about the factors already
outlined. They are only tendering for 51 per cent of the shares,
not 100 per cent, so investors will be left as a diluted minority
in a company with untried and unproven management. —

Outline

“We'll outline what we’re doing well and the fact we’re
making a profit, and that much of the management has been in :

this business for 10-20 years. At that time, we’ll also evaluate the. : :

price” Mr Finlayson is offering, that of $1.50 per share, a 44.2 }

per cent premium to yesterday’s $1.04 close.

Philip Stubbs, the Securities Commission’s chairman, declined ;
to discuss specifics on the AML Foods takeover offer when con- :
tacted by Tribune Business yesterday, but said the process :
would adopt “best practices” from the draft Takeover.Code that :

the regulator would shortly issue to the capital markets indus- :

try for consultation.

“What I can say is that the Commission has beak in dia- |

logue with the group making the offer bid, and been in dialogue :
with the company that is the target,” he said. “We're discussing. :
_ with both groups best practices from the draft Takeover Code :
that we are getting ready to introduce for consultation in the }
local market, which will be implemented as part of the Securi- i
ties Industry Act. We are using these methods for this Bera :

situation as a guide.”

shareholder rights, in the Bahamian capital markets, Mr Stubbs
told Tribune Business that “it’s very, very important” to intro-
duce-such guidelines.

“As you are aware, Takeover Codes, wherever they do exist,

are usually the best way to regulate these transactions, where i

you have a substantial amount of shares involved in an offer or

bid for a public company,” he explained. “It is one way of
having rules to ensure fair and equitable dealings.

“The fact we have not had one creates situations where you

_ do not have protective rules or guidelines to follow, especially

ty shareholders.

“We want to have an enviroriment to encourage people to.

participate in the capital markets. That is part of the mandate
of the Securities Commission to ensure fair and equitable. deal-
ings.”

The Takeover Code is being introduced in conjunction with
the reformed Securities Industries Act and accompanying reg-
. ulations, which were tabled in the House of Assembly pre-
Christmas. Mr Stubbs said the Securities Commission had
been informed that debate on the legislation might start this
month.

Acknowledging that the Bill and regulations would bring
the Bahamas into compliance with international best practices
and standards, the Commission chairman said: “It is an Act that
enables a lot of provisions and responds to current principles
and objectives in running capital markets.

“The Acct itself responds to the current provisions. of IOSCO
[the global securities regulatory body]. It is important to bring

our securities laws and regulations up to modern standards. The
Act has been tabled, and the Government has committed and :

recognised it needs to. give priority to getting it legislated.”

BIG blasts URGA ‘double standards’

FROM page 1B

there was a regulatory “level playing
field” between itself and BISX-listed
Cable Bahamas as Significant Market

' Power (SMP) operators, contrasting the

“sliding scale” imposed on the latter with
the requirement that it instantly unbun-
dle its own broadband Internet offering
from its phone services.

As Tribune Business revealed last
week, Cable Bahamas has been given
until end-2013 to complete the 100 per
cent separation of its cable TV and Inter-
net products on New Providence and
Grand Bahama, something Mr Johnson
yesterday described as fundamentally
unfair, arguing that the BISX-listed com-
pany had not complied with its SMP
obligations and should not be allowed
to.enter other markets.

He added that the extended time peri- .

od given to Cable Bahamas to ‘unbundle’
those services would “stifle” consumer
choice and the arrival of new competition
into those.markets, since for two years
new and existing Bahamian customers
would be required to take both services
- even though they may only want one.

» Describing the decision by the Utilities
Regulation & Competition Authority
(URCA) as “outrageous”,

complaining for some time. We can’t
understand why Cable Bahamas has
been given this sliding scale. going on for
two years, which seems to us goes against
consumer choice and competition, which
is URCA’s primary mandate. °

“Tf it’s good for us as an SMP. player in
this market, it should be applied to oth-

‘er SMP operators. I don’t think that’s
: unreasonable. That’s why this particular
: decision has left us perplexed.

“If everybody plays by the same rules,

i BTC has no objection. We want to
; ensure a level playing field, and that car-
: riers with the same SMP designation and
: obligations are held to the same stan-
: dards.”

i. BTC, he added, was now petitioning
+ URCA to obtain a “better understand-

ing” of the reasons for its decision on
Cable Bahamas.

BTC’s argument is that while it was
immediately forced to untie its broad-

: band DSL. Internet service from its

phone products, Cable Bahamas has
been given much greater latitude in'com-
plying with its SMP:-obligations, thus
leading toits charge that the latter is get-
ting off ‘lightly’, while it is subject to a
‘heavy-handed approach’ by URCA.

- Tribune Business reported on Friday

that Cable Bahamas had to:compléte the:
beaker! of its cable TV and I Internet '

Mr Johnson
told Tribune Business: “We have been.

products at 20 per cent of its New Prov-
idence nodes, plus 10 per cent of its
Grand Bahama nodes and 15 per cent
of those in Abaco and Eleuthera; by end-
2010. It successfully met this, enabling it

- to meet the SMP obligations.

Cable Bahamas has to complete
unbundling at 45 per cent of New Provi-
dence nodes by end-December 2011,
achieving 75 per cent by end-2012 and
100 per cent at end-December 2013.

On Grand Bahama, the 2011 target is
30 per cent, with the 2012 and 2013
thresholds 70 per cent and 100 per cent.
For Eleuthera and Abaco, the job is sup-
posed to be 50 per cent coniplite this
year, and concluded in 2012.

_Mr Johnson yesterday told Tribune
Business that while Cable Bahamas was
the “dominant player” in broadband
Internet, for two years a significant num-



ber of Bahamians would also be forced to *

take its cable TV services to access this
product, even though they may not want

the latter. This, he added, “stifles” com-

petition-in both markets.

BTC, Mr Johnson said, had to pene

significant ‘ ‘man hours and money’

dents in respect of the treatment of com-
panies with significant market power
(SMP) within the Bahamas.:

"Simply put: It is outrageous! What is
happening is that Cable Bahamas has
been granted an additional two years to
ensure that any one of its customers can
buy Internet services from that company
[has] to buy cable television services .

"At the same time, the regulator some
two years ago insisted that BTC sepa-

‘ rate its Internet service from basic phone

service - a requirement that BTC com-
plied with. Why the double treatment?
Why must those consumers who only
want Internet service be forced to buy
cable television service from Cable
Bahamas, while at the same time BTC is
forced, to provide its Internet and tele-
phone services separate and apart. It is
an egregious decision.

“While URCA accepts that Cable
Bahamas maintains SMP in the provi-
sion of basic Internet service, the regu-
lator has willingly been complicit in per-
mitting Cable Bahamas to use this posi-
tion to force‘its customers to buy a tele-
vision service that tbe customer may not
want.

“This is not fair to those consumers
who only want to buy a single service, nor
does it help develop the market place
for broadcast television. Hard as we try,

-we cannot find a single solitary angle

that would give. justification to this
action.” . |.

Mr Johnson added: “It is our view that’
the provisions in the regulatory regime

- suggest that. BTC and the other licensed

operators should have been given the
opportunity fo assess the impact of the
generous ‘concession granted to Cable -

- Bahamas with respect to the untying of

its broadband service from pay televi-
sion while it was still in the draft stage.
“Why 1 is it that BTC and other opera-
tors in the market did not have an oppor-
tunity:to respond to these incredibly gen-
erous.allowances to’the dominant player

unbundling its own products, some thitd 5 in the broadband and broadcast televi-

it accepted it had to do.
“We're perplexed and cannot under-

‘stand the rationale,” he told Tribune

Business, adding that the situation gave

BTC “pause” before it looked at expand-'

ing into other markets it was not already
in.

“Our prominent concern is that there
is equitable treatment based on the stan-
dards implemented by: URCA itself, he

- told this newspaper.
In a statement, Mr J ohnson aid: We

find it impossible to find even a remote-

ly digestible justification for this ruling on

the part of URCA. ‘It is wholly incon-

“sistent with URCA's’staféd mandate in

respect of customer choice and its prece-

sion market?"
And Mr Johnson said: "BTC is sim-
ply fed up with this double standard

_being exhibited by URCA in its dealing

with BTC vis-a-vis Cable Bahamas. We
both have reasonably been deemed dom- .
inant players in the various segments of
our market, and with that has come the

‘Significant Market Player [SMP] desig-

nations and obligations. ’“And while
BTC has expended significant resources
to date in its efforts to comply with its
‘SMP obligations, it seem pretty clear to
us that Cable Bahamas has been given a
free ride, despite the fact that they had
and have fewer obligations to satisfy the
regulatory when compared to BTC."

Symonette, Frank Crothers, *
William Saunders and
Franklyn Butler Jnr - thought
to collectively own in the high
30 per cents to low 40. per

makes these 21 shareholders
potentially key to what hap-

for more than the $1.50 that

Mr Finlayson is offering.

It is possible that Mr Fin-

tom up’ type of offer, where
they tender to buy 100 per

AML Foods investors below a
certain threshold, but the con-

- and their intent - are

presently unknown.

results to improve in the

onwards, rather than this year.

Some $2 million of $8 mil-
lion dollars earmarked for
training programs for Bahami-
an workers under the Baha
Mar project is anticipated to go
towards training of construc-
tion workers, funding a pro-
gram which the Mr Wrinkle
expects to be. “the. mest suc-
cessful private-public training
initiative that has ever been
undertaken in this country or
the Caribbean”.

Training

He said yesterday that Baha
Mar had appointed a training
program liaison officer within
its management team, and the
BCA is confident that the com-
pany “are working as hard as
they can” to get the training
initiative up and running in con-
junction with the BCA, the
Bahamas Technical Vocational
Institute (BTVI) and the
Department of Labour, .

“We are well aware that
work is moving forward on this
initiative,” said Mr Wrinkle of
the skills program. He noted
that meetings have taken place
between the BCA, Baha Mar

and BTVI, but not yet with the:
- Department of Labour.

The next step, he said, will

- be for the stakeholders to

“meet as a committee to deter-
mine the direction the training
will take”.

A key element of moving
ahead successfully is identify-
ing the schedule of works to be

undertaken to ensure that train- -

ing is geared towards “deliver-
ing results that‘are beneficial”
to the contractors who will be

undertaking the works, said Mr

Wrinkle.

“Training has to be specifi-
cally targeted towards the type
of work that will be available
on the Baha Mar project, with a
view to maximising who can be
employed,” he added.

“There will be a lot of con-
crete work to begin with. Then,
as the project proceeds, we will

_ need people trained in roofing

and glazing, and then as it
moves forward there will be the
interior fit out, hanging doors
and installing fixtures. We are
supposed to identify those

. items.as per Baha-Mar’s con-

struction schedule, and prepare

Obama says White House,
execs must work together

JIM KUHNHENN,
Associated Press
WASHINGTON

President Barack Obama
prodded American businesses
to do their share to help the
economy, calling on execu-
tives to "get in the game" and
begin investing nearly $2 tril-
lion accumulating on their
balance sheets.

The president, in a speech

_ Monday to the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce, called for a
cooperative relationship with
the private sector and argued
government and business
have a shared responsibility.
He highlighted new efforts by
his administration to improve
the nation's infrastructure,
invest more on entrepreneurs
and foster greater innovation.

Obama needs the centrist
cloak that the business com-
munity the chamber repre-
sents can offer, as he seeks to
win independent voters for
his reelection bid next year.
The Republican-leaning
chamber can benefit by soft-
ening the sharp edges it devel-
opéd fighting Obama's health
care overhaul and tighter
financial rules.

Both sides also need each
other to win on areas of poli-
cy where they share common
interests, such as trade deals.

To a polite, subdued audi-
ence he offered a‘stout
defense of government regu-
lations, even as he promised
to eliminate those that are too

’ burdensome. He reached

back to history, invoking Pres-
ident Franklin Delano Roo-

sevelt's outreach to corporate ©

leaders and evoking the
strains of self-sacrifice
expressed by President John
Kennedy.

"I want to be clear: even as
we make America the best
place on earth to do business,

businesses also’have a respon- .

sibility to America," Obama
said. "As we work with you
to make America a better
place to do business, ask your-
selves what you can do for
America. Ask yourselves
what you can do to hire
American workers, to support
the American economy, and
to invest in this nation."
Obama said his appearance

at the Chamber was in the .

interest of "being more neigh-
borly" — literally true as the
trade organization's head-
quarters are so close to the
White House that Obama was
able to walk across the street
to make his comments. His
appearance came as Obama
aims to smooth his relations
with corporate leaders and

Obama, who has faced lib-
eral criticism for his overtures
to Republicans and to the
business community, argued
on behalf of the financial reg-
ulation and health care initia-
tive that his administration
pushed through Congress last
year. "The perils of too much

regulation are matched by the |

dangers of too little," he said.

He called for changes in the
corporate tax code and
increased exports, but point-

edly warnhéd his audience that ~

businesses could not translate

_those benefits into "greater

profits and bonuses for those
at the top."

"We cannot go back to the
kind of economy - and cul-
ture - we saw in the years
leading up to the recession,
where growth and gains in
productivity just didn't trans-
late into rising incomes and
opportunity for the middle
class," he said.

Still, the Chamber and the
White House have mutual
interests.

Obama needs the centrist
cloak that the business com-
munity can offer, as he seeks
to win independent voters for
his reelection bid next year.
The Chamber can benefit by

softening the sharp edges it
developed fighting the health
care overhaul and tighter :

financial rules.

Both sides also need each
other to win on areas of poli- :
cy where they share common ;

interests.

The Chamber can help the }
Obama administration win :
congressional support of trade :
deals, particularly a recently :
renegotiated pact with South :
Korea. It can also act as :
Republican ballast against the :
influence of the conservative ;

tea party movement.

Both the White House and }
the Chamber face Republi- :
can opposition from fiscal :
hawks within the GOP to ;
increased spending on public :
works, from roads and bridges:
to wireless networks. Thé }
chamber has called for such }
spending to be paid for with :
user fees, such as a higher :
gasoline tax. The White :
House has not embraced that :
approach, saying only that the :
administration wants to cre- }
"infrastructure bank" :

ate an
to attract private capital.

The Chamber, which has :
long advocated for changes in :
immigration law, could help :
Obama by pushing Republi- :
cans reluctant to take.up such

a politically charged issue.

Obama cited a recently
finalized trade pact with :
South Korea, which is await- :

ing ratification by Congress,

as an example of the type of }
agreement he would like to }

Colombia. But the president :
did not specifically detail what :

ed in those negotiations to :
- complete a deal. :

After Obama's speech,

action on Colombia and :

ments is over."

Geithner in Brazil to

AIRLINE STOCKS TRYING
TO PULL OUT OF TAL

DAVID KOENIG,
AP Airlines Writer
DALLAS

Volatile oil prices and mas-
sive storm-related flight can-
celations have helped push
U.S. airline shares down by 10
percent in less than a month.

The stocks rallied Monday,
as oil prices fell and South-
west Airlines Co. reported a
big jump in January traffic.

Southwest said traffic last
month rose 13 percent from a
year ago. A key revenue mea-
surement increased between 8
percent and 9 percent, reflect-
ing higher prices. The report
offered more evidence that
travel demand is rebounding
from the worst of the reces-

.sion. The news helped
west shares rise 2.6 percent,
and other airlines gained too.
‘The Arca Airline index was
up 1.2 percent on Monday.

That followed a week in
which the index lost 2.6 per-
cent, capping a 10 percent
slide since Jan. 14. Over the
same period, the Standard &
Poor's 500 stock index rose
1.4 percent.

Michael Derchin, an airline
analyst at CRT Capital
Group, said aviation lagged
mostly because of worries
» bout rising prices for fuel.
.\long with labor, it's one of
an airline's biggest expenses.

Since mid-January, oil .
prices have stubbornly stayed
near or even slightly above
the $90-a-barrel mark, levels
not seen since 2008. ‘The price
of jet fuel on the spot market
has soared 44 Ip the...
past year, to ©. wee
with most of the increase
coming in the past six months.

_ The airlines were.also hit by
the third major winter storm

week, according to flight
tracking service
FlightAware.com.

The airlines haven't dis-
closed estimates of losses
from all the cancelations, but
Helane Becker, an analyst
with DahIlman Rose & Co.,

‘said Monday she estimates
the industrywide loss from
last week's storm at about
$100 million.

“The doctors told me that Thad
a half blockage in a quarter of
my heart,” he said.

68-year-old Arlington King could °

hardly breathe and his chest felt
- “hard as wood”.

After managing to drive him- -

’ self to a nearby clinic, Mr King,
who up until that point had nev-

er experienced heart problems,

was told by doctors that his heart
was blocked.

“IT was going to check on my
phone bill. When I arrived at Lit-
tle General I felt a pin stick in
my chest. By the time I got to
Texaco I could not breathe. My

- chest was hard as wood and I had
to drive with my mouth open. I
managed to make my way to the
clinic and when I got inside I
couldn’t talk. I hit my chest and
the’ nurse told them that I was
having complications breathing,”
Mr King, the dean of Hope
Academy High, told Tribune
Health.

A doctor in the emergency
~ room examined Mr King and told
him that his seizures were due to
gas reflux. However, another doc-
tor thought this was a wrong diag-
nosis and told Mr King that he
would not last another minute
without the proper treatment.
Mr King had an ECG (Elec-

FINANCIAL PROBLEMS

King have surgery to remove the
blockage and to have a stem put
in. However, this posed another
problem for the 68-year-old.

“JT didn’t have any money. I
had already spent money on the
two ECGs which were $500 each
and I had to come up with
$12,000 for the surgery. So I
asked the doctor what was my
chances were without the surgery
and he told me I didn’t stand a
‘chance. But my daughter saw to it
that I got the money for the
surgery and carried out all of the
doctors’ instructions. I did every-
thing that they wanted me to do.
I was able to secure the funds,”
Mr King, said.

The following week Mr King
was scheduled to have the
surgery. His.chances of surviving
were 50/50, doctors said.

The surgery was scheduled to
take place at Doctors Hospital,

_ but as the time came new obsta-
cles cropped up.

saw me still there. They asked
the nurses why I wasn’t over to

nurse shout out, ‘he has financial

embarrassing thing because my
‘daughter had already secured the -

funds and paid the hospital,” he
said. :

When it was time for the anaes-
thetic, Mr King told doctors that
he wished to remain awake
through the entire surgery.

“The doctors told me that I had
a 50/50 chance. So I said if [had a

what was going on. I wanted that
to be my last wish because I did

that whatever happens, happens.”

: SUPPORT

The medical professionals
granted Mr King his wish and his
family showed him support
through it all.

“They numbed the area and I
couldn’t feel a thing. But I could
see everything that was going on.
It was an experience that I cannot
express in words and I thank God
for those doctors because they
are smart. Their whole heart, soul
and mind went into what they
were doing. There was a nurse

the care that they did,” he told

This occurred three years ago.

Today, at age 71, Mr King is
doing better than ever.

“TI am doing great. lam taking ~

my medication on time, following
the doctor’s advice'and doing
what I love and that is teaching,”
he said.

Mr King gave a word of advice
to individuals who might be expe-
riencing a similar situation.

“I would tell people to make
sure you have regular check-ups.
It’s important to have family for
support. The main thing is to
know in whom you put your trust.

Make sure you know Christ in |

the pardon of your sins. You may
not be as fortunate as me. Fol-
low the doctor’s instruction and
do whatever you can do for the

when it might be your time,’ ” he
said.

He is not the first person in his

Organisation,

FEBRUARY is “Heart Month”

and persons all around are wearing
red ribbons and/or “Go Red for
Women” dress pins to symbolise
their support in the fight against
heart disease in general and more ,
specifically in women.

In the Bahamas, Heart Month j is

being observed by the Sir Victor Sas-.
soon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation
with its 47th Annual Heart Ball at
the Sheraton Nassau.

Under the theme, “Saving little

hearts for 50 years, one beat at a
time”, the ball will be held on Satur-
day, February 19.

Heart disease is the number one

killer of persons in the Bahamas and
around the world.

Recent vital statistics provided by

the Department of Statistics show 24
per cent of the deaths in the
Bahamas are directly related to heart
disease.

According to the World Health
“cardiovascular dis-



|

. ease, often referred to as heart dis-

ease, is caused by disorders of the
heart and blood vessels, and includes

coronary heart disease (heart

attacks), cerebrovascular disease
(stroke), raised blood pressure
(hypertension), peripheral artery dis-
ease, rheumatic heart disease, con-
genital heart disease (heart disease in
babies) and heart failure. The major
causes of cardiovascular disease are
tobacco use, physical inactivity, and
an unhealthy diet.”

Prevention, education, early detec- ,

tion and proper treatment are very
important to the preservation of life,
especially in adults,

For many this simply means quit-
ting smoking, eating right and exer-
cise. But children are a different mat-
ter.

For parents of children with heart

defects the choice to take steps to

preserve their child’s life is easy.
However, the process can be taxing
mentally, emononally, spiritually and

financially.

Without support, a parent is often.

left in despair.

The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas)
Heart Foundation’s was established
50 years ago with the aim of helping
persons in the Bahamas, who could

not ordinarily afford heart care, to
obtain it.

Today, the Heart Foundation’s
main role is to assist children with
heart repair.

To achieve its goal of assisting par-
ents and children, funds must be

raised. The Foundation relies heavi-'

ly upon the generosity of others to
meet their needs. It accepts dona-
tions and welcome individuals and
organisations to host events, to sup-
port its cause and raise funds. Addi-

_ tionally, the Bahamas Heart Asso-

ciation seeks to provide round sup-
port.

They raise funds through mem-
bership dues, and take a preventative
approach to heart care in persons of

all ages. The Annual Heart Ball is
the major fund raiser of the Heart
Foundation. It is hosted by a group of

' volunteers who aim to raise funds

for heart care and create awareness.

The ball will feature live perfor-
mances by the Ed Brice Orchestra,
the S-G Band (Soulful Groovers)
and the Royal Bahamas Defence
Force Dance Band.

Organisers said there will also be
lots of table prizes, an in-house raffle
and auction with an exclusive collec-

THE TRIBUNE



What are the benefits of a Green Smoothie? —

IN our last article, we provided
detailed guidance on how to make a
green smoothie.

Many may still be asking the ques-
tion, ‘what’s all the hype gbout it and
exactly how will this drink benefit me
and my body?’

Well, we’re happy to give you some
information to jump start you on your
own research path to finding the
answer to this question.

The bottom line-purpose of drinking _
green smoothies is not just to enjoy a
great tasting drink, but to encourage
people to get more greens into their
everyday food lifestyle and to facili-
tate an increase in the nutritional val-
ue we derive from them.

We have already established that
when most of us eat a salad, we don’t
normally chew the greens long enough
for them to become juice like.

This means we are not breaking
down the cell walls of the greens which
consist mainly of cellulose, which is
very difficult for our bodies to digest,
so that we can actually access the
dense nutrients that the greens sup-
ply.

As a result, drinking your vegeta-
bles (via blending) can provide more
of their benefits because the blender
assists with the ‘chewing’ process in
advance (without the loss of fibre),
which allows the greens vital nutrients
to be released and more efficiently
absorbed and digested into the body
than when youeatthem. ——.

Of course while-blending greens
makes it easier to consume, and more
fun and more tasty (for some), this
should not replace you eating/chew-
ing them.

Before we get into the specific ben-
efits, let’s give a little green smoothie
history shall we?

In 2004, raw food expert and author
Victoria Boutenko and her family,
though already enjoying a raw food
lifestyle for more than 10 years which
had allowed them.to reverse their most .
‘serious conditions, felt that they still
hadn’t realised the most vibrant health
they were looking for.

As a result, Victoria embarked on
finding the ‘perfect’ human food
lifestyle for her family.

She began by looking for an animal
genetically close to human beings. This

led her to studying the eating habits of

wild chimpanzees who share an esti-

THE RIGHT
APPROACH:
There are times
when it is okay
to wait and let a
Situation cool
down.



At the: same time he possess an
extremely strong natural immunity to
AIDS, Hepatitis C, cancer, and other
fatal human illnesses.

She thought that if humans and
chimpanzees share 99.4 per cent of the
same genes, then our food lifestyles
should also be 99.4 per cent similar?

When she compared the two, how-
ever, she found that the opposite was
true.

That is, the Standard American Diet
(SAD) is about 99 per cent different

’ from that of wild chimpanzees.

Over 50 per cent of most SADs con-
tain cooked carbohydrates such as.
potatoes, bread, pasta and rice.

Approximately 35 per cent fats, oils
and animal proteins and the rest fruit,
vegetables and greens.

This should sound familiar to most
of you, because the BAD (Bahamian
Average Diet) is very similar.

The chronic diseases of humankind
are not seen in wild chimps, so maybe
we should ask. the question, ‘why not .
take a leaf out of their book?’

Once reviewed, the difference is
crystal clear — the lifestyle and what
they eat is blatantly different.

The biggest difference being that —
chimpanzees consume significantly
more green leaves than humans.

They consume these greens in con-
junction with fruit. :

Based on these observations, Ms
Boutenko proceeded to perfect the
basic green smoothie recipe: 60 per
cent fruit and 40 per cent greens,
blended with a little water.

According to Ms Boutenko, greens
are the primary food group that match
human nutritional needs most com-
pletely. ,

They are loaded with amino acids,
(the building blocks of protein), min-
erals, vitamins, fibre and.chlorophyll.

Unlike other vegetables, it is said
that greens can be combined with any

Dodging the Fall

THE words dodging, evasion, pre-
vention and avoidance have both con-
structive and dysfunctional applica-
tions.

For instance, avoidance can be a
calculated action taken that will serve
the greater good.

You can take actions that can help
you to avert a catastrophe and save
jobs or you can decide on avoiding an
immediate decision because it takes
time to weigh the risks.

There are times when it is okay, to
wait and let a situation cool down.

This can be a productive approach
as heightened emotions impede com-
munication.

Avoidance is an action or lack of
action propelled by a decision. and
’ often times, the decision is propelled

by an emotion.

This article will explore the darker
side of avoidance, why it happens, and
what can be done about it.

When avoidance is in a dysfunc-
tional mode it can be driven by fear or
anger.

When a person is in a negative
avoidance mode, the quality of com-
munication diminishes.

It is important to note that commu-
“nication can shut down whether or not
a person is still engaging you in con-
versations.

There are some who choose to lit-
erally stop all forms of verbal and writ-
ten communication, others leave the
channels open but their responses are
vague, circular or confusing.

| Sometimes the responses are pas-
sive aggressive, where a person is giv-

ing the facade of co-operation but -

there is no intention to follow through
with constructive action.

When the intention behind avoid-
ance is not driven by fear, but by a
need to take a step back and view the

}



big picture, it is functional if procras-
tination does not set in.

When avoidance is driven by the
fear of a low performance rating, job
loss or the loss of a good customer,
because of incompetence, a lack of

' integrity, a low tolerance for mistakes

or a lack of knowledge it can end up
with disastrous outcomes.

DYSFUNCTIONAL
AVOIDANCE TACTICS

Here are a few ways both employees
and people leaders avoid and nega-
tive responses:

Avoiding the subject can be
achieved by changing the subject or
pretending the subject was never men-
tioned. It is also-done by answering a
question with a question.

Minimisation is a commonly used
tactic that is used to create a positive
spin.

The intention behind minimisation
is to mislead by creating a false sense
of security.

For instance, some persons will a
general statement that everything is
going well or they misrepresent the
facts in other ways.

A way to test this is to ask for spe-
cific information,

Others avoid by screening their calls,
not responding to emails or at an
extreme, hanging up on others.

other food and will enhance digestion
by stimulating enzyme production.

This is because there is a substantial
difference between green leaves and
vegetables. Green leaves don’t have
starch while vegetables such as car-
rots, beets, broccoli, zucchini, daikon,
etc, contain a lot of starch. Starchy
vegetables combined with fruit may
cause bloating.

Contrary to that, fibre in green

~-}eaves helps slow the absorption of

sugar in fruit making this combination
beneficial.

Hence, the combination of greens
and fruit in green smoothies is gener-
ally acceptable.

Here are 10 answers to the ques-
tion, ‘What are the benefits of con-:
suming more dark leafy greens (espe-
cially in the form of.a green smooth- .
ie)?’

° Regular Digestion

They are full of fibre which is very
important for good colon ecology
and elimination of waste.

e Experience fewer cravings for sug-
.ary and salty processed food

In the words of Khepra Anu, ‘You
are what you eat because you eat
what you are. Change your cravings,
change your health, change your
life!’

e Fewer mood swings

¢ More radiant skin

When your bowels are moving cor-
rectly, your body can eliminate tox-
ins in an efficient manner. Usually
someone with acne and other skin
problems have a problem with regu-

.lar bowels. When the toxins cannot
_leave through the bowel regularly,

they have to leave somewhere else,
often times this is via your skin.

8 Weight loss

There is a saying, ‘people who are
overweight are actually malnour-
ished!’

This is because we are eating nutri-
tionally ‘empty’ rather than dense
foods. With an increased amount of
nutrients, your body will be getting
-what it needs, thus a higher feeling of
satisfaction, and less snack attacks! -



Blame is a common way that
employees divert attention from them-
selves. Blame is sometimes accompa-
nied by half truths designed to appease
fact seekers.

As previously stated, avoidance can
be a passive aggressive strategy that
is responded to et passive or overt
aggression.

HOW AVOIDANCE
IMPACTS OTHERS

Using avoidance as a delay tactic
only frustrates the people impacted
by the delay.

In response, frustration can result
in tension or even shouting and pro-
fanity, especially if the avoidance is
creating an unfair situation where
someone feels disadvantaged or dis-

empowered by the circumventive.

behaviour.
In extreme cases an avoider’ s safety
can be put at risk, causing them to
‘constantly look over their shoulders
in anticipation of some type of retali-
ation.

INTRODUCING
ACCOUNTABILITY

The whole point of SOeEiue the fall
is survival.

When avoidance occurs because of

fear or cowardice, the reasons under- .

girding the evasive action can be fear
of consequences, circumvention of
conscience, or no conscience at all.
In fear or anger driven circum-
stances, dodging the fall is about avoid-
ing responsibility and accountability.
Unless the avoider has a cathartic
personal experience and honesty and
integrity become priority values that
drive courageous action, it is highly
unlikely that evasion will cease
because the need to survive is over-
rides or nullifies the need to be honest.

If personal transformation is not an
option, another way to transform this
type of behaviour into functional
behaviour is through effective leader-
ship. Attuned leaders realise the
impact of avoidance behaviours on
their efforts to build a cohesive, moti-
vated team so here are some of the
ways they develop accountable
employees:

° Take assertive action to correct
unwanted behaviour. This can
include handing out warning letters
and deptnding on the risks created
by the avoidance tactics, termina-
tion. This sends a clear message that
avoidance will not be tolerated.

e Reward appropriate behaviour
through performance management
or other recognition programmes.

° Coach direct reports and peers.

© Mentor coworkers.

© Model desired behaviours.

° Provide learning opportunities.
It is important to note that behav-_.
ioural training without effective sys-
tems implemented to ensure the
application of the learning produce a
much lower return on investment

. than training used in conjunction

with other developmental opportuni-
ties.

. As a people leader, it is important to
select the right combination of inter-
ventions so that the root causes can
be adequately addressed and authentic
change can begin.

As a leader, it is imperative to sus-
tain the behaviours necessary to effect
change, otherwise, sporadic attempts
to create long-term change will be
pointless.

‘cure to back pain

THE most important cure |

for back pain is prevention.
- If proper care of your body
and spine is taken the prob-

ability of injury decreases. .

Here are some guidelines
you can follow to avoid back
pain.

TIPS TO PREVENT BACK PAIN
e Maintain a healthy diet
and weight.

e Remain active - under the
supervision of your doctor.

* Avoid prolonged inactivity ;

or bed rest.

e Warm up or stretch before

exercising or other physical
activities, such as gardening.
e Maintain proper posture.
e Wear comfortable, low- .
heeled shoes.

.¢ Sleep on a mattress of
medium firmness to min-
imise any curve in your
spine.

e Lift with your knees, keep
the object close to your
body, and do not twist when
lifting.

¢ Quit smoking. Sinoking
impairs blood flow, resulting
in oxygen and nutrient

deprivation to spinal tissues.

¢ Work with your doctor of
chiropractic to ensure that
your computer workstation
is ergonomically correct.

¢ Drink enough water for
your body size and activity
¢ Get regular spinal check-
ups from your Chiropractor
Taking these simple steps
will optimise your health
and help to prevent injury.
It is important to get your
spine checked for overall
optimum health.

Byron Ferguson Jr making his presence felt at Trinity Christian Academy

By BRENT STUBBS

wo years ago, Byron Fergu-

son Jr’s parents, Byron and

Roberta “Bobbie” Fergu-

son, made a decision to send him off

to complete his high school educa-
tion in the US.

Since making the necessary adjust-
ment from playing softball and run-
ning track at St Augustine’s College,
Ferguson Jr is now making his pres-
ence felt at Trinity Christian Acad-
cemy in Lake Worth, Florida.

Last month, 17-year-old Ferguson
Jr participated in the Pre Season
Under Armor All-American Tour-
nament at the Diamondbacks Train-
ing Facility in Arizona.

The tournament was held in Jan-
uary and:showcased the top players
from around the country as they
competed in not only running, but
fielding, pitching and hitting.

IN its second show of-the

ued its goal of building young
amateur fighters for a future

"in the sport. ee

Champion Amateur Box-
ing Club hosted the "Econo-
my Car Lot" Boxing Show at
the Wulff Road Boxing Cen-
ter on February 5.

Eight bouts were featured | ©
on the night with aclosely “|
contested main event head- |
lining the card in the bantam"
weight division. \

Lester Brown Jr won on |
points over Tyrone Oliver 9-6,
and the fight between the two
was also named the "Best
Fight of the Night".

In just a short time span,
Brown has already been fea-
tured in over 50 bouts and has
been tagged as one of the
most promising up-and- com- |
ers in the club.

In other matches, Peterson |
Wra won on points over |
Aaron Butler (8-6), Devante |
McPhee won a third round |
TKO over Garvin Rolle, Jer- +
‘maine Allen won on points’
over Kendrick Stuart (10-6),
Keno Newman won on points |
over Anton Brown (5-3),
Kenzell Armbrister won on
points over Trae Johnson (7-
5), Sunny Beneby won on |
points over Alexander Stur- |
rup (13-9), and in his second
match of the day, Wra would
lose in a second round TKO -
over Garrett Bain.

McPhee was named the | -
most improved fighter, Bain
was the most valuable boxer
and the Economy Car Lot
award went to Allen.

Club organiser Ray Minus
Jr said events like this one are







the tournament that
was designed for
potential college
and minor/major
league teams.

During the tour- }
nament, Ferguson’s
speed was also test-
ed as he had to
compete in the 60-
vad ach, excelling FERGUSON JR.
to number six over-
all with a time of 6.75 seconds.

On hand to view the tournament,
Ferguson Sr said he was extremely
pleased with the progress his 5-feet-
11, 185-pound son made, and that
he has a younger brother, Travis,
waiting to follow suit.

“He is definitely in the top 20. per
cent of grade 11 and 12 baseball
players.in the country,” Ferguson Sr
said. “In terms of 12th graders, he
should definitely be right up there
next year when the rankings are
released from the tournament.”

Said Ferguson Sr,'a former sprint-
er for the Big Red Machine: “He
has a very good: work ethic. He

works really hard and he’s very com-
petitive,” he said. “He tries to be
the best among the group of players
that he’s involved with right now.
“I think over the last year and a
half, since he went off to school in
Florida, he has been doing very well.
So to be there in Florida and watch-
ing him perform against the best
high school players from across the
country was a proud moment.”
During the tournament, Ferguson
Sr said he got to watch his son per-
form well in the two positions that he

. participated in for Trinity - pitching

and outfield.

“He pitched really well and he
looked very well on the outfield,”
he said. “He also had a 700 batting
percentage and so he got on base
most of the times and he also had
about six stolen bases.

“He didn’t strike out. Whenever
he got out, it was either from get-
ting thrown out or hitting into a play.

He also pitched well, so it was a’

proud moment to see him in that
competition.”
As an 11th grader, Ferguson Sr

said if his son can continue to per-

form the way he is right now, he
should be able to secure a scholar-
ship to a major university at the end
of his 12th grade next year.

“We have a number of colleges

already sending him their informa- -

tion, so it’s just a matter of trying to
find the right fit for him,” Ferguson
Sr revealed.

Ferguson is one of many players
from the Junior Baseball League of
Nassau (JBLN) attending. school
abroad in the US. He teams up with
Byron Murray Jr and Anthony Rus-
sell at Trinity Christian Academy.

They are following in the footsteps -

of Richard Bain, who in 2009 was
drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies
and is currently playing at Palm

' Beach Community College.

Looking back at their decision
when their son completed grade. nine
at SAC to send him off to school,
Ferguson Sr said if he had to do it all
over again, he would do the same
thing again.

“At. first it was a a kind of tough

move. It wasn’t so much a gamble,

but a tough move,” he said. “But
looking at it in retrospect, it’s been a
good move because he has really
matured over the last year.

“Whenever he comes home, you
could see how much he has grown
up because he has to cope on his
own. His grades have also gone up,
so it’s much better for him because
the school is very academic con-
scious.”

Having just completed the pre-
season, Ferguson Jr is now preparing
for the start of the spring baseball
Monday when he gets the starting —
nod'as the pitcher for Trinity Chris-
tian Academy as they take on
Jupiter High in the opener of the
Santaluces Tournament.

The tournament is slated to con-
tinue Tuesday against Santaluces
and Thursday against Suncoast
before the final is staged Friday.
Their regular season opener is all
set for February 22 against North
Broward Prep.

The season is expected to run
through May with about 35-38
games on the schedule.

Drogba set to return, African teams head to Europe

By GERALD IMRAY
AP Sports Writer



JOHANNESBURG (AP) —
Didier Drogba is set for his inter-
national return after a seven-month
break as Africa's top teams head
to Europe for a series of friendlies
this week.

Chelsea striker Drogba was
included in Ivory Coast's squad for
the first time since its final game at
last year's World Cup.for the meet-
ing with Mali in Valence, France
on Tuesday.

Ghana — newly established as

~ Africa's highest-ranked team at No.

15 in FIFA's standings and playing
under new coach Goran Stevanovic
for the first time — take on fellow.
west Africans Togo in Belgium.

On Wednesday, Cameroon is
away in Macedonia and DR Congo
and Gabon face off in another
France-based 4ll-African affair in
Rouen.

South Africa is at home to Kenya
and Nigeria plays Sierra Leone.

Drogba makes the relatively short
trip from London to southeast
France after last playing for his
country in a 3-0 win over North

Korea in the group stage in South’

Africa last year. The victory was-

n't enough to keep the Ivorians in

’ the tournament.

‘Coach Francois Zahoui also
included Salomon Kalou of
Chelsea, Kolo and Yaya Toure of

Manchester City and Emmanuel

Eboue of Arsenal, along with
recalled Hannover midfielder Didi-
er Ya Konan.

But it's the contribution of Drog- ©

. ba which is expected to interest

Zahoui most ahead of the next
round of African Cup of Nations
qualifiers. in late March.

The Ivorians have won two from
two in the qualifiers and have lost
just once to Mali in 20 matches.

Serb Stevanovic held his first
training session with Ghana on
Monday in unfamiliar Antwerp

after officially taking over from
compatriot Milovan Rajevac on
Feb. 1.

All but one of his 19-man squad is
based in Europe, including trou-
blesome midfielder Sulley Muntari,
who is on loan at England's Sun-
derland. Michael Essien is still

~--absent, though.

Muntari had run-ins with Raje-
vac during the African Cup of
Nations and the World Cup in 2010,
and was left out of Ghana's opening
Cup of Nations qualifiers late last
year. However, he has been given
another chance under Stevanovic.

Chelsea midfielder Essien hasn't
played for his country for nearly a
year after being granted an inter-
national break by the Ghana foot-
ball association.

Ghana is currently locked in a
battle with Sudan and Congo for
control of its 2012 African Cup
qualifying group.

Togo is unlikely to qualify from
its group after slipping to fourth, 10
points behind surprise pacesetter

Botswana.

Also Tuesday, Botswana is away
to Mozambique after staying
unbeaten in eight games before a
2-1 loss to Sweden in Cape Town in
January.



Spain targets
morale-hoosting
Win in friendlies

LONDON (AP) — Spain
is targeting a morale-boost-
ing win over Colombia in this
week's international friend-
lies, several of which have
been severely disrupted by
injuries to key players.

The Netherlands and Eng-
land will be understrength for
Wednesday's games against
Austria and Denmark after
players withdrew with prob-
lems picked up in the English
Premier League at the week-
end.

Spain is without captain
Carles Puyol and Cesc Fab-
regas for its match against
Colombia in Madrid but can
still call upon the likes of
Andres Iniesta, Xavi Her-
nandez, David Villa and Iker
Casillas as it aims for a first
win in four friendlies since
adding the 2010 World Cup
to the European Champi-
onship title it won in 2008.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP)

— Thousands of exhausted .

but euphoric Packers fans
cheered the team Monday on

Super Bowl champions after.

their victory over the Pitts-
burgh Steelers.
Schools dismissed early

‘Monday and people took off

work so they could see the
team as it traveled from
Austin Straubel International
Airport to Lambeau Field

along a route that included
Lombardi Avenue, named in .
honour of the legendary pack-

ers coach Vince Lombardi.
Ashley Ellis, 17, and Erica
Christensen, 18, of Oak
Creek, went to bed ‘at mid-
night after celebrating the

_- Packers' victory. They were

up at 4am to drive to Green
Bay and stake out.a spot for
the parade. They said.the
Packers gave.them "anxiety

their second-half comeback,

but on Monday all was right
with the world in Green Bay.

. Asked why anyone would get
“up at 4am to visit a football
stadium, Christensen replied:

simply.
"Love them," she said.
Area schools released stu-

dents after a half-day to allow . f

them to attend the parade. By
11am throngs of fans milled

. around the stadium's atrium.

People lined up for tours of
the stadium, asked about tick-
ets to Tuesday's rally and
grabbed lunch at Curly's Pub,
a restaurant at the stadium

named for the Packers'

founder, Curly Lambeau.
Some fans just:stood in the
parking lot and screamed to

"Has it sunk in?" he said. "I
don't know. Maybe after the
parade and the celebration."

Dozens of fans helped clear ©

ice and snow from the stadi-

um bowl's bleachers for a ral-:

ly Tuesday. From the field
level, they looked like ants as
they shuffled back and forth,
duntally chipping away at ice

dams and dumping snow onto
a conveyer belt, which carried
it to the field where bulldoz-
ers pushed it aside. All for

_ free. The Packers have tradi-

tionally asked fans to clear
snow from the bleachers dur-
ing the season, but this time
was different.

Steelers stuck
on six Super
Bowl titles

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A
silver lining for the Steelers
faithful is all the "Seventh
Heaven" merchandise will
still be good for at least anoth-
er year.

The Pittsburgh Steelers
remain stuck on six Super
Bow! titles after their 31-25
loss to the Green Bay Packers
on Sunday.

One day after the defeat,
the gloomy weather in Pitts-
burgh seemed fitting for a city

' dealing with a rare loss in the

big game.

If there's one franchise that
isn't used to this feeling, it's
the Steelers.

Sure, they lost a Super
Bowl before, but they've won

_ two since and they have six

in their collection.
Ben Roethlisberger lost his

chance to join rarified air and

become one of the few quar-
terbacks with three Super

to wait until next year, if there

WINNING RIDE: In this publicity image released by Disney, Super Bowl MVP Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers takes a celebratory ride with Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.,
after the Packers’ 31-25 victory over the Eiepunan Steelers in the NFL football Super Bowl XLV game Sunday.

MVP Rodgers celebrates Super
Bowl victory at Disney World |

By KYLE HIGHTOWER
Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Aaron

Rodgers’ smile never faded as he

rode on the back of a convertible
pacing down a confetti-filled parade
route through Disney World's Mag-
ic Kingdom on Monday afternoon.
The Super Bowl MVP. was oper-
ating on only a few hours' sleep fol-
lowing Green Bay's 31-25 win over

Pittsburgh Sunday. But even with a.

Florida afternoon storm threaten-
ing in the distance, it was clear noth-
ing could cloud the Packers quar-
terback's spirit.

"It's a special day, it really is,"
Rodgers said afterward. "I didn't
get a lot of sleep (Sunday) night, but
it's great to be able to celebrate.
This is a team that came together
and accomplished something spe-
cial."

Rodgers became the latest Super

Bowl MVP to participate in Disney's.

"I'm going to Disney World" com-
mercial series Sunday night, which
celebrated its 25th anniversary this

year. Former-New York Giants Phil

Simms was the first to do it following
the 1987 Super Bowl. Rodgers flew
to Orlando from Texas on Monday.

A California native, Rodgers said
he had been to Disneyland in Ana-
heim, but never to Orlando's Dis-
ney World. Thousands of fans lined

Main Street in the theme park Mon- _

day, many of them decked out in
Packers' jerseys, T-shirts and cheese-

-head hats.
Rodgers posed for photos with °

the Disney characters and even took

a bite of a specially-made block of.

cheese in the shape of.a Packers
emblem.

Rodgers said that even with the,
victory, he doesn't expect the com-

parisons to former Green Bay quar-

terback Brett Favre to end. Favre

led the Packers to their previous
Super Bowl win in 1997, but unlike
Rodgers, was not the.game's MVP.

"I don't think they ever stop

because I'm the guy-that followed .

him," Rodgers said. "But I hope.
You know, we're doing something
special in Green Bay right now and
I hope people can recognize that.
I'm proud of the way our team came
together this season.

"Thankfully, I have two parents
that raised me the right way and
pushed me to be the best at whatev-
er I did. And J wanted to be a foot-
ball player. So, right now I'm at the
top of my game."

Longtime Packers fan Mike Got-
tlieb has lived in Orlando for the
past 25 years, but is originally for
Milwaukee.

One of the founders of the Central
Florida Packer Backers, a fan club
that started in 1987, he 52-year-old

Gottlieb and ‘the group had about’

100 of its members at Disney on

‘Monday to see Rodgers. Also one of
the publicly-owned Packers part-. |

owners, Gottlieb said he thinks the

ghost of Favre no longer hangs over

Rodgers.

"T don't know if there was a mon-
key on his back, because the Packers
did what they said they were going
to do," Gottlieb said. "They said
they were going to stand by him, no
matter what happened to Brett and
they did. And I think (Rodgers)
appreciates it, too. ... I think he'll
be with the Packers forever and he
could have another three or four
(titles) in him."

Rodgers passed for 304 yards and
three touchdowns in his first Super
Bowl appearance.

. He said was still thinking about
his underwhelming effort in Green

Bay's 21-14 NFC championship

game win over Chicago. He threw
two interceptions and no touch-

downs in that game, though’ he did :
have a 1-yard touchdown run. "

"I'm a perfectionist," Rodgers —

said. "If I played a little better I
think I'd be a little more ‘satisfied
with my postseason, but I prepared
to play well (Sunday) and I was able
to meet those expectations."
_ Next up for Rodgers is to rejoin
his teammates for a celebration at
Green Bay's Lambeau Field on
Tuesday. But he said it's the
moments with them Sunday night
after the game that are continuing to
play in his mind.

"Just in the locker room after the
game and being able to reflect with
my teammates," he said. "Big hugs.
It's a special group of men. I think
you realize at that point the season is
over and that group of men is never
gonna be together again. It's just
special to be able to share with those
guys because we went through a lot
together this year."

been suspended for a game and fined
$50,000 for separate incidents involving
officials this season. Jackson has reached
13 technical fouls on the season, not
including one that was later rescinded by
the league. That leaves him three shy

Mark Wilson wins frost-

delayed Phoenix Open

By JOHN NICHOLSON
AP Sports Writer

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.
(AP) — Packers fan Mark
Wilson celebrated a big vic-
tory of his own on a playing
field about as close to frozen
tundra as it gets on the PGA
Tour.

A self-described cheese-
head from Menomonee Falls,

Wisconsin, Wilson won the —

frost-delayed Phoenix Open
on Monday for his second
_ victory in three starts this
year, holing a 9-foot birdie
putt on the second hole of a
playoff with Jason Dufner.
"I'm just enjoying the ride
here and that's just kind of

the way I'm going to look at . |...

the year here, just ride this
train as long as I can," Wilson
said. ane

After playing until dark
Sunday and fulfilling some
’ parental duties, he was able
to watch only a few minutes
of the Super Bowl.

"I had to wash Lane's face
and put his jammies on, and I

had to eat, too," Wilson said.

"The chaos, with two little
kids running around — I like
the chaos; it's a good distrac-
tion. But at that time, I want
. to at least get to watch the
last 15 minutes of this game.
This doesn't happen every
year, the Packers in'the
Super Bowl. i
"Luckily, my-son, after we

‘ . played Candy Land in the

middle of the fourth quarter,
' he said, 'OK, the last two
minutes we can watch it
together.’ So we watched that
last stand, and I was happy
that ‘they somehow pulled it
off."

Delays for frost and frozen
turf the first four days forced
the Monday finish.

.

JUST SHORT: Jason Dufner watches his birdie shot from the bunker
come up short of the hole on the 18th green in the final round of the
Phoenix Open Monday. Dufner finished second in the tournament.

Two strokes, ahead when
play resumed Monday, Wil-
son closed with a 2-under 69
to match Dufner at 18 under.
Dufner shot a 66, with birdies
on Nos. 16 and 17.

"I was a little more ner-
vous today than I was expect-
ing," Wilson said. "I didn't
sleep great last night. It was
probably the excitement with
the Super Bowl and the
uncertainty of today."

The Sony Open winner last
month in a 36-hole Sunday
finish, Wilson made a 4-foot
par putt on the par-4 18th to
extend the playoff. He won
on the par-4 10th, setting up
the deciding putt with a .7-

iron approach from the mid-

dle of the fairway.
"That was an easy putt,"

(AP Photo)

Wilson said. "Just thankfully,

I started it-on line and

knocked it in."

Dufner was facing a 7-foot
par putt when Wilson ended
the playoff.

"Came out and made a
couple birdies to. put maybe a
little heat on Mark, and he
played great," Dufner said.
"Great two-putt on the first

. playoff hole from 70-plus feet

and makes birdie on the next
hole." ' ;

Wilson earned $1,098,000
for his fourth PGA Tour title.
The 36-year-old former Uni-
versity of North Carolina
player also won the 2007
Honda Classic and 2009

. Mayakoba Golf Classic. He
. jumped from 91st to 51st in

the world ranking — locking

MARK WILSON

up a spot in the 64-man
Match Play field - after fin-
ishing last'season at No. 230.

After resuming play Mon-
day on the 13th green, ‘Wil-
son made seven straight pars
before holing the winning
birdie putt.

He nearly. drove into the
water on the left side of the
18th hole in regulation, but
the ball cleared the hazard
and ended up in a bunker.
He hit a 9-iron approach to
about 14 feet and two-putted
to force the playoff.

"I got away with a bad tee
shot on 18, but luckily got a
good bounce and was hop-
ing I'd finish it off there,"
Wilson said. "But the play-
off.was fun."

VALLE:

A Breeze



Dufner is winless on the
PGA Tour. He also settled
for par on the final hole of
regulation after nearly hol-
ing out from a greenside
bunker.

"It's a good start to the
year," Dufner said. "To be
honest, this is a course that I
never really thought I could
compete on. History on this
golf course is a lot of long-
ball hitters. Mark and myself
probably aren't the longest,
but we're probably not the

shortest. But to be able to =

compete and be at the top of
the field for the week is good,

.so it's definitely good.

momentum for the rest of the
West Coast swing."
Martin: Laird (65) and

Vijay Singh (66) tied for third.

at 16 under, and Gary Wood-
land (66), J.B. Holmes (67)
and Nick Watney (68) fol-
lowed at 15 under...
Third-round leader Tom-
my Gainey,,a:‘stroke back
with two holes left, closed

with a 74 to tie for eighth at —

14 under. He made a triple
bogey on the par-4 17th after
hitting into the water twice
on the driveable hole.

"I guess I've just got to
deal with it," Gainey said.

"You've got to win with class_

and you've got to lose with
class, so I'm trying to deal
with that right now."

Phil Mickelson tied for
29th at 10 under. He finished
with consecutive 71s after
getting into contention with

opening rounds of 67 and 65: .

Mickelson, second a week
ago in San Diego, needed at
least a solo third-place finish
to pass Tiger Woods for No.
3 in the world. Lefty hasn't

béen ranked ahead of Woods

since the week before the
1997 Masters.

Kan to defend
WA title

MANCHES-
TER, England
(AP) — Amir
Khan will defend
his WBA light-
welterweight title
against European
champion Paul
McCloskey on
April 16.

In his first fight AMIR KHA
on home soil since
2009, the British fighter will face
the Northern Irishman at the
MEN Arena in Manchester.

"Home is home and I love
fighting in England," the 24-year-
old Khan said Monday. "Not
many people can afford to travel
all the way to America to see me
fight. "McCloskey's not a pay-
per-view fighter and he agrees
with that."

Khan fought in the United
States last year, defeating Paulie
Malignaggi and Marcos Maidana.
He has a career record of 24 wins
(17 KOs) and one loss.

There had been speculation
that Khan's next defense would
be against Victor Ortiz or Zab
Judah. But he has settled for the
31-year-old McCloskey, whois
22-0 but hasn't fought any big
names.

"I've never really met him but
he's meant to be a great fighter,
undefeated and European cham-
pion," Khan said. "It's going to
beabignightforme. . .

_ "He's.a tough guy. For him, it's
going to be a big fight. He'll be
fighting for a world title. I'm giv-
ing him that chance." - ~~

- But Khan is already looking .

past the bout. He wants to meet
WBC and WBO champion Tim-
othy. Bradley before stepping up

a division to fight Floyd: May- '

weather Jr.

"I want to unify the division in
the summer," Khan said. "My
dream is to become pound for

‘pound champion. of the world

and to do that I'll have to fight

. one of them. te

"I'm a big fan of Mayweather
but sometimes you have to share
the ring with-one of your heroes.”

“The love for education and

Man accused of rape claims
he was molested as a child

A 34- -year-old man was arraigned in Magistrate’s Court
yesterday charged with two counts of rape.

Samaco Wallace was arraigned before Magistrate Der-
rence Rolle-~Davis in Court Five, Bank Lane.

It is alleged Wallace raped a woman on Wednesday, Jan-

-uary 12, and another on Wednesday, February 2.

Wallace was not represented by an attorney and was not
required to enter a plea to the charges — although he indi-
cated that he wanted to plead guilty.

A preliminary inquiry will be held.

Wallace claimed that he had been molested as a child by
a now deceased relative and told the magistrate he wanted

_ help as he suffered from depression.

“I really need help. Sometimes I just feel so depressed,”
Wallace told the magistrate as he stood in the prisoner’s

dock.

Magistrate Rolle-Davis ordered that he receive pre-trial

counselling and evaluation.

Wallace was remanded to Her Majesty’s Prison.
His first trial is scheduled for June 6 and 7.

MEDIA MESSAGE: Superintendent Elaine Sands speaks to the press ike that,” said eae Lrainitee:

“They come with the crow-

i catch the people. If they knock

Another Haitian source said

ten by an uncooperative per-
son. A Haitian resident said a
man admitted to biting an
immigration officer on the fin-
ger, because that officer held
him in a choke hold. After
being bitten, the officer alleged-
ly beat the man several times
with a frozen one Ballon bottle
of water.

Running

In defence of the officers,
another Tribune source said:
“We have instances in that
same village where people
break off running and leave
infant kids. You only hear that
immigration beat up, bloody
up, drag out someone, but why
would you run and leave an
infant child?”

“People complicate these
things. If people would co-oper-
ate, once an immigration officer
is satisfied you are who you say

, you are, then there is no prob-

lem. I don’t know what all the
fight is about. I become
extremely suspicious when peo-
ple are putting up a fight,” he
said. Questions were raised by
residents about the statutory

authority of immigration offi-
cers to forcibly enter homes to ,

carry out inquiries.
An informed Tribune source
said that generally speaking,

the use of a crowbar to break
down a door is “not accept-
able.”

However, the source said cir-
cumstances must always dictate
the tactics used by officers.

“There are certain levels of
actions that are required at dif-
ferent stages. It depends on the
kind of information you have,”
said a Tribune source.

“When we are just conduct-
ing-a simple inquiry as to your

immigration status there is a lot

we stumble on. People don’t
understand the complications.
This is not easy. When you are
going out there in the name of
this country you come up
against a lot of obstacles and
resistance,” he said.

The cooperation of residents

any operation, according to
officials,

Mr Thompson said most res-
idents were compliant; howey-
er there was at least one con-
frontation, which was reported
to have escalated into violence.

He did not release any infor-
mation regarding the number
of people apprehended in the
raid, or details of their deten-
tion. However, The Tribune
understands details will be
released later this week.

Speaking about the claims of
aggressive tactics, Deputy
Prime Minister and Minister of
Immigration Brent Symonette
said: “There was one incident
of a person, an illegal immi-
grant, attacking someone, an
officer reacting, and an alter-
cation ensued.”

Obama looks from Egypt to US economy

WASHINGTON (AP) — For now, the
fever appears to be breaking in the Egyptian
crisis, allowing President Barack Obama to
turn back to pressing U.S. economic trou-
bles and the impending political battles over
solutions to America's huge and threatening
debt burden.

The overt subtext every day from now
until November 2012 also will display an Oba-
ma who is carefully positioning himself for
election to a second term. So far, his han-

dling of the crisis in Egypt, while less than.

sure-footed, has found broad bipartisan sup-
port — a political bullet dodged. But the
economy remains wobbly, and therein lies
the key to re-election of America’ s first black
president.

He faces a Republican drive to cut spend-
ing that begins in earnest this week, building
on November elections that returned the par-
ty to-the majority in the House of Represen-
tatives on campaign promises of smaller gov-
ernment and reducing the federal debt.

’ There is broad agreement among politi-
cians of both parties that the country can no
longer sustain a federal deficit projected to
reach $1.5 trillion this year, and an accumu-
lated debt of more than $13 trillion.

The lines will be drawn this week as the

House begins working on a bill to keep the:

government in operation after March 4, with
Republicans demanding that funding be $35
billion lower than what was enacted for last
year. That would tide the government over
through September. The new budget year
begins October 1.

Preparing for the battle, Obama's budget
director, in an article in the New York Times
on Sunday, pointed to spending cuts in three
popular programmes in states and cities as
examples of the "tough choices" ahead in

’ the White House budget blueprint that also
will propose lower spending overall. At the
same time, Obama wants to direct money to
new initiatives. He sends his spending pro-
posal to Congress on February 14. *

The president already has called for a five-
year freeze on discretionary spending, except

for national security. That will reduce the ©

deficit by more than $400 billion over 10
years, according to the White House.
Budget director Jacob Lew, however, cau-

tioned Republicans against indiscriminate -

budget cutting in what he called areas critical
to long-term growth, including education,
innovation and public works. Such reduc-
tions, he said, "would stifle the economy just
as it begins to recover. That, in turn, would
deprive us of one of the most powerful drivers
of deficit reduction, a growing economy."






Obama has been recalibrating his posi-
tions on the economy since the Republican
landslide in November. The Democrat has
shown a willingness to compromise and has
shaken up his White House, replacing key
advisers with figures seen as more business-
friendly. That in turn has led to a significant
rise in his approval ratings with Americans.

He speaks Monday at the Republican-
friendly Chamber of Commerce, a major foe
in the last election. It will be his first speech to
the organization which, not four months ago,
he attacked for failing to disclose donors to its

_ huge, $32 million congressional political cam-

paign, "Their lips are sealed," Obama said at
the time, "but the floodgates are open."
Now, facing the new reality created by
the November vote, White House officials
say Obama's speech will not break new poli-

cy ground. In his radio and Internet address.

Saturday, Obama said businesses have an
obligation to stay in the United States, hire
American workers and invest in the nation's
future.

' "That's the message I'll be bringing to
American business leaders at the Chamber of
Commerce on Monday — that government
and businesses have mutual responsibilities,
and that if we fulfil these obligations togeth-
er, it benefits us all," he said.

. The message is not limited to the Cham-
ber. Obama already has met with top U.S.
executives in December to push them to put
some of the billions of dollars they are‘hold-
ing back into circulation to. create jobs./He has
compromised with Republicans on tax cuts.
That gained him grudging support from-big
business.

Obama also promises a review of govern-
ment regulations, something that is at the
top of the business agenda, particularly the
financial sector that is facing a swath of new
tules. ¢

The president's renewed focus on the
economy, however, could easily be knocked

aside by events in Egypt. While’ the crisis

seemed to ease as the government began
talks with the opposition and gave ground
on major points, the crisis is not over. A
wrong step by the government and its security
forces, balkiness in moving forward toward

new elections and the departure of President .

Hosni Mubarak could easily tip the balance
back to bloody violence.. That would force

. Obama back into trying to manage a deep cri-

sis abroad — one that is critical to American
policy throughout the Middle East and
beyond.

ynden Pindling
took racial
discrimination to
sreater heights

EDITOR, The Tribune.

On page four of Thursday’s .

edition of The Tribune was a
letter to the Editor, under the
heading: “Sir Lynden’s name
should not be in textbooks
under racism.” I cannot agree
more, for it was none other
than Lynden Oscar Pindling
who, after the late Sir Etienne
Dupuch presented his histor-
ical anti-discrimination reso-
lution to parliament that
brought an end to racial dis-
crimination in this country,
started a reverse racial dis-
crimination campaign among
the black masses, that saw this
once tranquil nation split wide

apart. He, Pindling did not -

bring about the end of racial

discrimination, he just
reversed it and took it to
greater heights.

The PLP politicians, blind
supporters, gofers, paid writ-

ers, and henchmen of the late .

Lynden Pindling, take a
delight at the slightest oppor-
tunity in attempting to hood-
wink our younger unsuspect-
ing generation, who were yet
unborn when Lynden Pin-
dling was racially and politi-
cally dividing this nation and
corrupting its citizens, that he,
Pindling was responsible for
bringing about all of tlte
changes that occurred during
that era. It has been often said

that the only original idea that ©

Lynden Pindling ever came
up. with was a booklet he
wrote titled “One Man’s
Dream”. in’ 1965, which
prompted a march on his res-

© idence’ by a number of cabinet

ministéers'and others seeking
his resignation.

The end of discrimination
in public places came about
as a result of Sir Etienne’s
Resolution, without an act of
Parliament. Pindling had



LETTERS

nothing to do with it, in fact
he was not even there.;I was
on duty in the House along
with Corporal John Crawley.
That event is written in detail
in my Memoirs. Majority
Rule came about in 1967 asa
result of the late Randol
Fawkes and Alvin R Braynen
who formed a coalition with
the PLP who had run a dead
heat with the UBP in the gen-
eral elections, UBP 18, PLP
18, Pindling and the PLP, con-
trary to published lies, did not
win anything. It was Fawkes
and Braynen who brought
about the event by joining
forces with the PLP.
Pindling’s infamous act of
throwing the mace out of Par-
liament in 1965 and Milo’s fol-
low the chief act by throwing
the hour glass, was in my
opinion, an act of desperation
and frustration in an attempt

to draw attention to them-

selves. I was on duty at par-
liament on this occasion, as a
chief inspector, in fact, the
mace fell directly in front of
me and broke in _ two.
Retrieved the bottom portion;
but before I could reach the
top portion, it was picked up
by a PLP supporter and
thrown into the crowd where

‘it disappeared.

In 1963 The Bahamas, ata

‘Constitutional conferénce in

London was granted Internal
self government by Great

Britain, this brought about

ministerial government with
its head being designated Pre-
mier. This change came into
effect in 1964, with the late
Sir Roland Symonette being

_ named the first Premier, Pin-

dling was the second and last
to hold that title. This move
was made in preparation for
the country going indepen-
dent.

If the UBP had won the
1967 election, the country
would have been independent
by 1970. Great Britain was
shedding all of her Colonial
territories at the time. In fact
during the 1967 and ’68 elec-
tions Pindling and the PLP
campaigned against Indepen-
dence telling the voters that
the white folks would be tak-
ing them back into slavery. In
the government’s Speech
from the Throne in 1968 Pin-
dling promised he would not
seek independence. It was

: after winning the 1968 elec-

tion and learning that inde-
pendence was a foregone con-
clusion that he started harping
on independence for the

Bahamas to fool the masses

which he succeeded in doing.
There are many in this nation
who, through ignorance and
blind loyalty to a political
despot, believes.the blatant
lie that he, Pindling, was
responsible for the country
achieving Independence, he
was not, the only role he
played was being in the right
place at the right time.

I congratulate the letter
writer, Ms Asiah Munnings,

for having the fortitude and |

courage to put the lie to these
too often repeated feats that
through the years are attrib-
uted to have been achieved
by Pindling. What can be
termed his chiefachievements
are the corrupt state and
moral decay of this once
Christian nation.

Lots of rumours — but how about investors?

EDITOR, The Tribune.

I found it interesting reading the Neil Hartnell story that there
are rumours that a Middle Eastern group were rumoured to be

making offers for the Port.

Was it not the Minister of State last week also rumoured that
there was.a group looking at the Harcourt property, Royal Oasis?
Then there was the statement that the group proposing a large
development at Smiths Point, land outside of The Port which

GBDEVCO owns. Editor, can we only deal with rumours and no ~

investors with money, old fashioned cash in the bank?
Surely the Port should have issued a release denying or con-
firming as should the local rep for Harcourt and GBDEVCO?
How long was it for Baha Mar to get to a position where it
eventually was funded — 2005 through 2010 — the unemployed
can’t wait that long so surely the investment policy should be — if

you ain’t got money don’t apply!

Headlines sell newspapers and nothing else — rumours can’t

make a sandwich.

ited Grand Cay, Abaco last

’ water is safe for human con-

to the supply of water,” Mr
Neymour said.:

as a temporary base. Today,

According to WSC general
manager Glen Laville, the RO
plant came in operation in
November 2010 and, after sev-
eral days of operation, the

supply developed an odour as .

a result of Hydrogen Sulphide

_.(H2S). in, the supply wells.

The presence of Hydrogen
Sulphide is not an “uncom-
mon” occurrence for RO sup-
ply wells in the Bahamas and
it is considered an aesthetic
consideration, not a health

“risk, he added.

Under WHO guidelines,
there is not even a concentra-
tion limit for this compound
in potable water, the brief
said.

“You cannot harm yourself

with Hydrogen Sulphide in
the water,” Mr Leville said.
“Hydrogen Sulphide as a gas
is dangerous and that was
what was reported in the
media; but to try and link the

- dangers of Hydrogen Sulphide
in it gaseous form and in
potable water are two differ-

ent things.”

“We have taken steps to:

resolve that (Hydrogen Sul-

phide odour) through chlori- -

nation, ozonation, aeration
and that seems to be working

- well,” Mr. Laville said. “Right

now. we have no more odour

left in the water.we supply.”

“Probably about 25 per cent
of the feed water wells (in the

Bahamas) have it to some lev-

hydrogeologist Dr Richard
Cant said of Hydrogen Sul-'

Mr Laville added that:
recently, in the media, there. -

diately, as its primary concern : ©

is the safety of its customers.

‘Such concerns lead ‘to the --

corporation taking-their own

“We are taking our own

samples because we question ey

the integrity of the procedure
used to take the previous sam-
ple that was reported on,” Mr
Laville said, referring to 4
sample the PLP chairman
claimed to have had tested by
a private firm in Nassau.

“When you start to deal.

“We will) be sampling —

“THE BAHA MAR PROJECT.

4500 BAHAMIAN
CONTRACTORS
TO BE HIRED
FOR BAHA MAR
CONSTRUCTION

FROM page one

_ Construction on the
Commercial Village is
expected to begin early in
the second quarter of
2011, said Mr Ingraham,
work which will be award-
ed solely to Bahamian
contractors while work on
the new West Bay Street
should begin by the end of
this month.

The amount of work
_ available comes after the
government last year
negotiated an increase in
construction contracts
allotted to Bahamians, to
$400 million from $200

million during a high-level q3

meeting in China, said Mr
Ingraham.

"As a result of the dou-
bling of contracts to be
executed by Bahamian

“firms; the number of -:
Bahamians.to be engaged

on the project during con- :

struction is likely to be as
many as 4,500," he said.
A sizable portion of |

work on the core element —

of the project also will be
-sub-contracted to locals,
‘the nation's chief added.

‘The amended HOA also
‘mandates that Baha Mar
create and sustain a learn-

-ing institution for its .
employees — the Training
and Service Academy — to
give extensive instruction
24 months before the
resort's hotels open. After
the property begins busi-
ness, the school will be.a

“permanent fixture intend-
ed to boost the quality of
service given by Bahami-
ans in ‘the hospitality
industry.

"The academy is to be
permanent offering ongo-
ing training opportunities:
for employees and
prospective employees,"
said Mr Ingraham.

An $8 million training
programme — facilitated
through the Bahamas
Technical and Vocational
Institute and the College
‘of the Bahamas — has
already been established
to train and certify labour-
ers.

Mr ingrahami alo com-
. mended Baha Mar Chair-

man Sarkis Izmirlian's
“unwavering dedication'to
the project even after its
initial partner Harrah's
Entertainment pulled out
in 2008. The developers
secured a new financial _
partner — China Export
Import Bank and China
State Construction — and

. received formal approval

from the People's Repub-
lic of China last year.

Three luxury hotel oper-
ators have signed on to the
$2.6 billion development —
Rosewood, Morgan's, and
Hyatt — who will make
capital investments of $10
million by the first two |
while the latter will inject
$37 million.

Mr Ingraham boasted
that the adjusted Heads of
Agreement signed in 2008
enhanced Government's
financial benefits while
slashing concessions
agreed to in the 2005
HOA under the Christie °
administration.

- In the amended 2008

HOA Government:

1. Refused Baha Mar's _
request to permit addition-

~ al deductions from annual

casino licence fees by
another 14 years.

2. Refused additional
‘special concessions on
casino taxes for three
years.

3. Refused to provide
$40 million in co-operative
marketing for the relaunch
of the Cable Beach area.

4. Mandates that Baha
‘Mar and JV Company pay

the government $17.686
million for the Cecil Wal-

WALLACE WHITFIELD CENTRE

, BAHA MAR will be obligated to
pay government $17,686,000 for the
Cecil Wallace Whitfield Centre, which
will be demolished to make way for the
luxury development.

Baha Mar will also convey.to the
government a 2.259 acre parcel of land
on which the new West Bay Street will
sit.

The parcel in question begins where.
the southern side of West Bay Street _
and the eastern boundary of the West-
ward Villas Subdivision meet.

With 90 days notice from Baha Mar,

the government will vacate and convey
_ the Cecil Wallace Whitfield Centre

(CWWC), turning it over to the project
company subject to the lease between
the government and Scotia Bank.

Baha Mar is not expected to occupy
or. use the CWWC for any purpose.
However, demolition on the building
will begin within 30 days after con-
veyance of the CWWC.

The building is named after one of
the founding members of the Free

THE $2.6 billion Baha Mar project
requires collaboration between govern-
ment and the developer for the comple-
tion of various road and utility improve-
ments.

Under the company’s Heads of Agree-

ment (HOA), the government, with par- ,

ticipation of the Baha Mar Development
Company and “for the benefit of the
Bahamian public — will complete
improvements to the infrastructure of
New Providence and the Cable Beach
area.”

Footpaths

According to the HOA, the Baha Mar
Development Company has agreed to
complete a number of road improve-
ments, including constructing a new John
F Kennedy Drive connector road (the
“JFK Connector”), and diverting West
Bay Street. The company will also pro-
vide suitable landscaping, lighting, sig-
nage, drainage, footpaths and jogging

. trails.

It is estimated that the improvements
to road networks will cost around $90
million — $45.3 million of which the gov-
ernment will reimburse to Baha Mar

-along with $2.8 million which is the total -

cost of the JFK connector.

Baha Mar will bear the cost of the
relocation of all above-ground power
and utility lines and poles along the new
JFK connector road and will maintain
the existing electrical facilities servicing
the Cable Beach area during construc-
tion of the public infrastructure works.
The company will then re-establish these
facilities on the new West Bay Street.

Under the HOA, the government
must also facilitate expansions and
improvements to various public utilities.

The expansion of BEC and BTC capa-
bilities in the area is required to supply
the project with a secure and uninter-
rupted electricity supply and GSM
mobile telephone roaming services for

Other resorts in the Cable Beach
area of New Providence will be invited
to participate in the campaign on a
fund matching basis in amounts to be
determined by the government.

The campaign by the government

one year prior to the opening of the

project with an anticipated duration
of two years.

Further, after the opening of the new
casino at Baha Mar, government will,
for an eight-year period, contribute $4
million a year towards the cost and
expense of the marketing activities of
the resort, the newly-tabled Baha Mar
Heads of Agreement states.

The marketing activities will be
determined in collaboration between
the government and Baha Mar and
administered by the resort.

ernment will be going toward direct
costs and will exclude the cost of

It’s most urgent

By JOHN ISSA

Iss



NOW that ocean
freight is on the move
from East Bay Street to
Arawak Cay the redevel-
opment of downtown
Nassau must occupy the
front burner. The other
major projects in New
Providence are moving
along. Albany has —
opened and the second
phase is about to com-
mence. Baha Mar has
announced a date for -
ground breaking. In less
than three months the
first containers should be unloaded at Arawak Cay:
The new terminal and other amenities at the LPIA are
rapidly progressing to completion. Smaller projects
like the new shopping mall in the west are under con-
struction.

This now leaves the other most important project,

_ the redevelopment of downtown as the urgent priori-
ty. : f
What make this project even more important than
the others I mentioned is that it will have a greater
direct impact on the daily lives and psychological out-
look of the Nassau community. The revival of the
heart of the Capital City will uplift the national pride
and confidence of our people. It will also revive the
downtown economy and boost Cruise tourism. Addi-
tionally it will have a very positive impact on the land
based tourism industry as well because it will immea-
surably improve the image of Nassau,as a destination.

Even if I am only half right, the revival and redevel-
opment of downtown should not be left to move along
at its own pace.

The country can’t afford it. One way of accelerating
the development is creating.a defined special econom-
ic zone incorporating that area which the Government
‘determines to include in the downtown redevelop-
ment project. Within this economic zone there should
be a single administrative and planning agency which
would have the authority to deal with all planning —
approvals and business licensing. -

This Agency should also assist foreign investors in
the zone with obtaining necessary approvals. These
will fast track development projects within the zone.
All elements of this project should be made the
responsibility. of one Ministry so as to cut through red
tape.

A necessary element which will light a fire under
investors would be special tax incentives for a limited
time, say five. vears. These could include relief from
import duties for construction within the zone, relief
from-transfer taxes and even relief from the business
license fee for the first five years of businesses creat-
ing new employment. This would allow the early birds
to get the worm.

BCP issues ‘clarion call’ for
2012 Christian candidates

THE Bahamas Constitution
Party wants to find 39 Christian
men and women to represent
the party’s message and carry
its banner in the 2012 general
election.

Each candidate vying for the
party’s endorsement must be
of the Christian religion, have
strong personal faith and con-
victions, and possess “moral
fortitude and integrity”,
according to a statement issued
‘by the BCP yesterday.

It said: “While no person is
perfect, their life must be in
order and they must be able to,
withstand the questions and
scrutiny of the candidate
screening committee and a
basic inquiry.”

The party assured all
prospective candidates that the
results of its investigations will
be strictly confidential.

This comes as the party

“announced plans to revolu-

tionise the way campaigning is
conducted in the Bahamas.
BCP interim leader Ali
McIntosh said: “Despite what
seems like a mighty force of

the governing Free National —

Movement, the outward facade
of the momentum of the Pro-
gressive Liberal Party , the
rhetorical pretense of a third
party alliance, the Bahamas
Constitution Party has not
changed its message or its man-
date of going forward in the
2012 general election with its
full slate of candidates.” °

Ms McIntosh said the nature

_ of the candidate selection

process in the major political
parties, “where friends recruit
friends, and only the most
devoted party loyalists. are
included,” has cheated the elec-
torate out of having the best
choice of suitable candidates.

This, she said, has over the
years resulted in a low stan-
dard of debate in the House of
Assembly and the poor perfor-
mance of some MPs.

“Consequently, the BCP has
resorted to changing the game
plan, in order to affect a dif-
ferent result. We have orches-
trated a more fair, equitable
way to bring forward the most
eligible and suitable persons
willing to serve their country,”
Ms McIntosh said."

She said the party is extend-
ing an “open appeal” to mem-
bers of the public, asking them
to consider becoming BCP
standard bearers in the 2012
general election.

In the interest of promoting
gender equality, the party
wants half its candidates to be
women. Out of the 41 sitting
MPs, only five are female, Ms

_ McIntosh noted.

Meanwhile, she said, the
majority of registered voters

are women.
“These statistics reflect that
despite the presence of women

as ‘power breakers’ in the elec-’

torate, women are not power

sharers with men in nearly -

equal proportion in the politi-
cal leadership.of the country.”
Ms McIntosh said the party
plans to appoint a 13 member
candidate selection committee,
to vet hopefuls in time for final
ratification by the summer.
“This independent panel will
provide three levels of inter-

views and litmus testing, before -

the candidate is officially
approved and endorsed,” she
said.

As far as criteria is con-
cerned, aside from being Chris-

tian, each candidate must be a
“strong intellectual person”,

able to speak to issues and pro-
vide written contributions con-

cerning the views of their. con-

stituents:

Prospective candidates must .

also have a “personal vision”

for the Bahamas, and be pre-._.-
pared to contribute to the~
development of the nation: ~

Hopefuls must also be famil-

iar with Part 3, Article 46, 47,
48, 49, 50,51 of the Constitu-

fications for members of par-
liament and the Composition
of the House of Assembly.

Finally, those vying for can-
didacy must have a strong
commitment to.“the preserva-
tion of the next generation”,
and hold the conviction that
“the Bahamas is the inherent
right of Bahamian citizens
first”, as well as the “God-giv-
en legacy of unborn genera-
tions”.

Disappointment at lack of church

support for

THE co-ordinator of the National Par-
enting Programme said she is disappoint-
ed that few churches responded to her call
to participate in improving family life in
the Bahamas.

Cheryl Carroll said many churches

ignored the invitation to take part in a ~

specially organised training initiative, even
though the sessions are free of charge and

participants are free to use the skills they be

acquire. however they wish.
. She noted that while the response from
churches was dismaying an interest was
expressed by some of the other. organisa-
tions contacted, particularly Urban
Renewal centres.

“We need churches to get involved
especially those in areas where there is

an Urban Renewal centre,” said Mrs Car-_

roll. “We target those areas because we
want fo connect Urban Renewal and the
churches.

“We could use the pastors, lay workers

-and those persons working in the urban

renewal centres as facilitators.”

The training, which begins on Febru-
ary 16, qualifies participants to work as
facilitators for the NPP, and Mrs Carroll
said the programme still needs mote peo-
ple who have experience working with
families, churches or community organi-
sations.

Anyone. interested is asked to contact
Mrs Carroll, who is also a senior. probation
officer, at the Rehabilitative and Welfare
Services Office located in the Abaco Mar-
kets Building on Thompson Boulevard
before Friday, February 11.

’ Individuals choosing to take part in the
training will join those who are already
facilitating parenting classes at the Reha-
bilitative and Welfare Services Office as
well as at Her Majesty’s Prisons and the
PACE programme for teen mothers, Mrs
Carroll explained.

In addition, an eight week training pro-
gramme is being run for St Anne’s School

the programme’s objective, of expanding
into the communities, Mrs Carroll said.
“Once parents have the information,
that information is power and will help
them know how to deal with their: chil-

~almost a preventative kind of thing.”

The training for new facilitators will
take place over a period of five months,
from 9am to 5pm, but as most participants
work, sessions will take place three, four or

Bishop Eldon:
pastor, carer
and listener

FROM page one

Bahamian to teach there. He spent many years
making an impact in Grand Bahama as parish
priest. A local school is named in his honour.

He was consecrated Bishop Suffragan of
New Providence on June 24, 1971, and became
Diocesan Bishop in April, 1972, serving in that .
capacity for 24 years until his retirement in
1996. ms

Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham said: “Bish-
op Eldon leaves a significant legacy not only in
the Anglican community but in the annals of a
young nation ‘in which he was the first local
priest to become prelate, having assumed that
high church position fully a. year before we
gained Independence in July of 1973. .

“Bishop Eldon has been rightly praised for
his role in-bringing about the full Bahamiani-
sation of the Anglican Church in The Bahamas
as more than 50 Bahamians were trained as
priests on his watch, reducing, and indeed elim-

- inating, the need for Anglican clerics to be
recruited to this Diocese from abroad.” ;

In 2005, Bishop | Eldon suffered from recur-
rent pneumonia problems with blood: poison-
ing, respiratory and heart problems. He first
went on medical. ventilation, or life support,
at that time.

While his condition was once e stable enough
for home care, for the past two years, he was
cared for in hospital i in a comatose state.

“Bishop Eldon’s voice was silenced by long
years of illness but the message and legacy of
this high, holy man remains strong and relevant
today. He was an advocate for good, for.schol-
arship, for social.advancement, for human
decency, arid for Christian charity. We hon-

’ our him in his passing and hold him up as most
worthy of emulation,” said Mr Ingraham.

‘ “Bishop Eldon caused new congregations
to be established in new suburbs around New
Providence and the Family Islands, construct-

-ed new churches and repaired and renovated
others. throughout the island communities of
our country. Bishop Eldon ‘had a special affin-
ity for Family Island communities and was a
great supporter of the: development of repre-
sentative Local Government,” he said.

’. For many in the Anglican diocese and across
the Bahamas, Bishop Eldon left an “indelible
imprint”.

. Philip Davis, Cat Island, Rum Cay and San
Salvador MP, said: “Today we pay tribute to”
the late Bishop Michael Eldon for his selfless
service and commitment to God and Country

_. which have reached even beyond the bounds of
this nation. Bishop Eldon's ministry indeed

*-fotiched the world, and engendered growth in:
the Church that gave birth to.a nation in this
partofthe globe...

itual mentorship and modeled devotion in
building up humanity are wholesome teach-

_ ings which have truly guided our nation for-

FNM ‘has built vibrant
shareholding society’

Statement released by governing party

WHILE the Opposition
talks about economic empow-
erment, the Free National
Movement has in fact, built a
vibrant shareholding society
in which all Bahamians now
enjoy greater ownership of
the national economy and
more personal financial
opportunities, the. FNM said

in a press statement last .

’ night.

The statement said that
“this includes the offering of
shares at the new port at
Arawak Cay which will help
in. the revitalization of
downtown, boost our
tourism industry and pro-
vide a modern and more

efficient port for the flow of ©
goods through New Provi-

dence.”

It noted that the “Opposi-

tion continues to talk about
the new port but never got
around to actually building
one.”

Forty per cent of, the
shares at the Arawak Cay
Port will-be held by the
Government, 40 per cent

will be held by 20 private.

companies and 20 per cent
will be made available to the
Bahamian public, the state-
ment said.

The FNM said that sv aatt

tially 60 per cent of the
shares at the port will be
held between the govern-

ment and individual share--

holders.

“Rather than press state-
ments and posturing on the
matter of affording Bahami-
ans access to shares in vari-
ous public and private con-
cerns, the Opposition may
wish to put its record on the
table instead of endless
talk,” the FNM said.

“Sadly, its record does not
match its rhetoric.or the
considerable achievements
of the FNM in building a

shareholding society.” ,
The FNM said that it
“helped to empower indi-
viduals, families, pension
funds, unions, institutional
and other investors to pur-
chase shares in a broad
range of private, public and

joint venture companies. .

This has made hundreds of

millions of dollars of assets. :

_its reasonable relocation costs,”

Any govt relocating Arawak Cay Port
would have to pay all relocation costs

FROM page one

Assembly yesterday, two penalty
clauses have been added in the
event of such an action.

Clauses 5.1.9, and 5.1.10 explain
that if the port and depot lease for
the APD were to be broken prior
to its 45-year lease, “the govern-
ment will reimburse to APD all

and “compensate APD for all
buildings, leasehold improvements
and immovable equipment at the
Arawak Cay Port and/or Glad-
stone Road Depot as the case may
be.at the greater of their net book
value or fair market value.”

Calling these line items “uncon-
scionable,” Opposition MP Ryan
Pinder said these clauses are
included to act as an “impediment to any
change in opinion” that any subsequent gov-
ernment may have.

Although stressing the PLP will govern

‘under the rule of law, Mr Pinder said they

also will be mindful of any unconscionable
provisions in “this agreement.”
Mr Pinder added that the PLP was also trou-

-bled by a number of other aspects of the

MOU, particularly that clause 4.3 gives the
private shareholders who would only own 40
per cent.of the company the majority of the
seats and the chairmanship of the board while
the government would only get. one, and the
public no seats at all.

Mr Pinder said that with a public- private
sector agreement like this, there should be a
scenario where the government and the APD

_ get three seats each, while the public share-

holders get the final board seat.
“Why the public cannot have a say at the

- board level does not make sense to me,” the

Elizabeth MP said.
“This entire document is a document for
the sole purpose to ensure that these private

sector special interest groups
make money. There are provi-
sions in here that say that the
board of directors can change
prices to guarantee a 10 per cent
return. There’s provisions in here
that effectively make this a 90-
year agreement — a 45-year term,
plus a 45-year option.

“So everything in this document
ensures that the private share-
holders make a profit and are pro-
tected. You have this very uncon-
scionable provision that protects
this port for 20 years, there cannot
be another port established in
Nassau or 20 miles from the
shoreline of Nassau for 20 years.
That seems to be another uncon-
scionable provision.

“Who is to say that another
port in Carmichael would not be
a good idea to service other countries? With
this type of provision it is very narrow-minded
in that either you don’t believe in the eco- .
nomic expansion of the Bahamas and a trade
agenda for the Bahamas because you are iso-

‘lating yourself to one small port, or it is clear-

ly a provision to protect the private share-

‘holders in the port,” he said.

the sale of 51 per cent of BTC," said Prime

Minister Hubert Ingraham during a brief sit-
ting of Parliament yesterday.

When. contacted for comment, Bahamas
Communications and Public Officers Union
President Bernard Evans said.he "could care

‘less" that the long-awaited documents will be
made public today.
‘Mr Evans represents line staff at the state--

run company and since the MoU was signed
has led a charged debate against the looming
sale.

He added that he and Bahamas Communi-
cations and Public Managers Union President
William Carroll were invited to meeting with
the government set for 9am in their capacity as
members of the Privatisation Advisory Com-

“ mittee. Up to press time, the union heads were

unsure if they would attend. He claims the
two were not invited to the committee's last
meeting.

"Between now and tomorrow morning we
will make up our minds on whether or not we
will go to the meeting. They want to now
involve us before they table something in the
House but look at the time, it's the last hour,
what kind of input can we make now?

"I could care less about what's in the MoU.
Our position still stands, if you withheld it all
this time obviously you were not intending
for us to contribute in any. meaningful way.
It's just a rubber stamp."

He suggested that the Government will have -

a huge price to pay if it goes ahead with its

’ planned sale.

"If Government goes through with its plan
they have to.deal with an entire workforce

* that's not harmonious with them, to say the

least. The court case is one. arm, I'm glad it's

starting to come tos a head where we can
invoke all of those who said they will support
us. u

Meantime, parliamentarians are not expect-
ed.to debate the controversial MoU today as
Prime Minister Ingraham has said it will be
put before the Bahamian people two weeks
before any scheduled debate will happen i in the

‘House.

This week, leader of Opposition Business in
the House of Assembly Obie Wilchcombe said
the Progressive Liberal Party is all set to air
concerns over the sale when the MoU is tabled.
Top on the list of the PLP's demands will be to
know what part of the $210 million sale price
is hard currency and whether the sale will sim-
ply move the telecommunications provider
from one monopoly to another.

"We have heard the concerns of the work-
ers, the concerns of the unions, we have seen
what we believe is a draft document of the
Memorandum of Understanding, so we have
been preparing ourselves for whenever the
government brings it to the House," said the
West End and Bimini representative.

"We think the government should not give
any company 51 per cent," he added.

The MoU was signed with the regional
telecommunications provider in December
causing uproar from the unions representing
BTC workers and the Opposition who accused
the Government of "secretly" negotiating the
deal because the document was not released
immediately.

Umbrella trade unions the National Con-
gress of Trade Unions of the Bahamas
(NCTUB) and the Trade Union Congress
(TUC) also backed BTC's unions.

In January, the BCPOU and BCPMU filed
a joint action in the Supreme Court question-
ing the government's right to sell the assets of

the company.

Eqynt demonstrators entertain to Keep morale high

CAIRO

TWO rows of men greet
demonstrators at the main

clapping as people enter,

rhythms of a traditional

"We are becoming big-

-of deadly battles with fire-

camels just last week, has

THE artifacts from the Egyptian Museum
damaged by looters will be restored over the
next five days, the country's antiquities head
said Monday.

Zahi Hawass also said that steps were
being taken to reopen Egypt's famed
archaeological sites, which have been closed
since unrest seized the country two weeks
ago.

During huge anti-government protests
on Jan. 28, looters climbed a fire escape
and broke into the museum, damaging a
number of items, including two mummified
skulls from the Late Period.

Originally the skulls were thought to have
been attached to mummies, but Hawass
said they were being used to test a new.-CT
scanner and were not from the royal mum-

my collection.

Among the 70 objects damaged was also
a statue of King Tutankhamun standing on
a panther and a wooden sarcophagus from
the New Kingdom period, dating back more
than 3,000 years ago.

The museum, which is right next to the
massive protests still taking place in down-
town Cairo, is now being guarded by the
army. Initially, when the demonstrations
began, civilians formed a human chain to
protect the building.

The museum is home to the gold mask of
King Tut that draws millions of tourists a
year, and houses thousands of artifacts span-

ning the full sweep of Egypt's rich Pharaon- °

ic history.

Hawass also asserted that the nearby
archaeological digs Saqqara, Memphis and
Abu Sir were secure following es of
looting there.

WEBSITE: CHECHEN
REBEL LEADER CAMS
AIRPORT BOMB

‘ MOSCOW
Associated Press

A WEBSITE affiliated
with Chechen rebels has
released a video in which
insurgent leader Doku
Umarov claims responsi-
bility for last month's
deadly suicide bombing
at Russia's largest airport
and threatens more .

bloodshed if Russia does 4

not leave the region.

The Kavkaz Center
website says it received
the video late Monday. It
was not clear when or
where the video was
recorded.

The Jan. 24 attack at
Moscow's Domodedovo
Airport killed 36 people.

Russian investigators say

the bomber was a 20-
year-old man from the
Caucasus region that
includes Chechnya, but
have not released his
name or other details.
"You see this special
operation carried out by
my order ... more spécial

operations will be carried |

out in the future,"
Umarov says in the video,
wearing a camouflage
uniform and a skullcap.

"Among us there are
hundreds of brothers who
are prepared to sacrifice
themselves" in further
attacks, Umarov says in
the video. "We can:at any
time carry out operations
where we want."

Over the weekend, the
website released another
video in which Umarov
also threatened more
attacks, saying 2011
_ would be "the year of

blood and tears."

Chechen rebels have
fought two full-scale wars
against Russian forces _
since 1994. Major offen-
sives in the second war
died down about a
decade ago, but the insur-
gency has continued with
small clashes in Chechnya
and in neighboring Cau-
casus republics.

The rebels have
claimed responsibility for
an array of terrorist , -
attacks, including last
year's double suicide
bombing of the Moscow.
subway system that killed
40 people.

Umarov, who seeks to_
create a Caucasus emi-
rate independent from
Russia and governed by
Sharia law, said in the
earlier video that he
could call on 50 to 60 sui-
cide bombers if neces-
sary. :

The blast at Domode-
dovo, south of the Russ-
ian capital, raised strong
concerns about Russia's
strategy against the insur-

_ gents and about its ability
to protect against future

attacks. The day after the ©

bombing, President

Dmitry Medvedev said

that terrorist attacks in

the country increased in

2010, although he did not
cite figures. .

The bomb went off in
the waiting hall of the
international arrivals area
at the airport. As in many
other airports, there were
no security procedures to
go through in order to get
into that area.

Medvedev initially
lashed out at airport
management for poorly
guarding the area, but the
airport's operator
responded that the Russ-
ian transport police are
responsible for security in
that part of the airport.

In the next few days,
Medvedev fired several
top transport police offi-
cials and ordered height-
ened security measures at
all the country's main
transport.hubs, including
major railway stations.

ce





as Medvedev was prepar- — :

ing to speak at the presti-
gious World Economic

Fo in Davos, Switzer-
“fand, where h he ho ws

reassure foreign investors
that Russia was safe and
attractive.

The bombing forced
him to make an abbrevi-
ated trip to Davos, where
he declared that the
attack would not crush
Russia or its drive for
investment.

LONDON

BRITAIN'S previous
government did "all it
could" to help Libya win
the release of the only man
convicted of the Pan Am
bombing in Scotland in
1988, though it insisted the
decision was made entirely
by Scottish officials,

Britain's head of civil ser-.

vice said Monday. |
However, Sir Gus
O'Donnell, the leader of
the Cabinet Office, also said
he found no evidence that

_the central government had

put any pressure on Scot-
tish authorities to grant the
release.

Abdel Baset al-Megrahi,

‘the only man convicted in

the terrorist attack, .was
granted a compassionate
release from a Scottish
prison in August 2009 on
the ground that he was suf-
fering from prostate cancer
and would die soon.
He is still alive.

_ The bombing of the U.S.-

killed 270 people, most of
them Americans, and al-
Megrahi's release has been
criticized by members of
the U.S. Congress.

Prime Minister David
Cameron, leader of the
British coalition govern-
ment that took power in

May, asked O'Donnell to’

conduct the review.

: » Cameron has strongly criti-

cized al-Megrahi's release

Cameron's office said he
discussed the issue with
U.S. Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton on Saturday
at a security conference in

"strongly agreed" the pris-
oner release was a mistake.

Associated Press

THE USS. said Monday it would
recognize an independent Southern
Sudan and review its designation of
Sudan's government in Khartoum
_ as a state sponsor of terrorism after

that African nation accepted the

south's vote to secede.

Election officials said Monday that
more than 98 percent of ballots in
the Jan. 9 vote were in favor of inde-
pendence, meaning Southern Sudan
will become the. world's newest

country in July.

"I congratulate the people of
Southern Sudan for a successful and
inspiring referendum in which an

Obama called it "another step for-
ward in Africa's long journey toward

justice and democracy."

Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton commended the Sudan
government for accepting the out-

come.

Assurance

Clinton said in a statement that
the designation will be lifted if
~ Sudan does not support terrorism

_for the preceding six months and
it will not do so
in future. It must also fully imple-
ment a 2005 peace agreement that

House of Commons.

O'Donnell said British
policy regarding al-Megrahi
developed after former
Prime Minister Tony Blair
negotiated a prisoner trans-
fer agreement with Libyan
leader Moammar Gadhafi
in 2007.

Policy then developed ~

that the government should
"do all it could" to facili-
tate an appeal by the

ibyans to the Scottish gov-
ernment for Megrahi's
transfer to be released
under the prisoner transfer
agreement or on compas-
sionate grounds, O'Donnell
said.

"Nonetheless, once Mr.
Megrahi had been diag-
nosed with terminal cancer

. in September 2008, (gov-
. ernment) policy was based

upon an assessment that
U.K. interests would be
damaged if Mr. Megrahi

were to die in a U.K. jail,"

O'Donnell said.

"The development of this
view was prompted, follow-
ing Mr. Megrahi's diagno-
sis of terminal illness, by the
extremely high priority
attached to Mr. Megrahi's
return by the Libyans, who
had made clear that they
would regard his death in

Scottish custody as a death

sentence and by actual and

implicit threats made of
severe ramifications for

U.K. interests if Mr.
Megrahi were to die in
prison in Scotland."

Blair's successor, Gordon
Brown, met Gadhafi in July
2009,.a month before the
release, and had said he
could not interfere in the

- Scottish decision, O'Don-

nell said.

The U.S. Senate Foreign
Relations. Committee held
hearings last. year on
whethér the British-based
oil company BP had sought
al-Megrahi's release to help
get a $900 million explo-
ration agreement with

between the north and south that

killed more than 2 million people.
Clinton urged both northern and

southern leaders to continue to work

together toward full implementa-
tion of the peace agreement and
post-refetendum arrangements, to
ensure they become two "viable
states living alongside each other in

peace."

The mainly Christian south and

| mainly Muslim north must still nego-
tiate citizenship rights, oil rights and
border demarcation.

Budget

Virtually all of southern Sudan's
budget comes from oil revenue, and
the north wants to maintain fuel sup-
plies from the south.

Chief Executive Tony Hay-
ward refused to testify
before the committee last
year.

BP has acknowledged
that it had urged the British
government to sign a pris-
oner transfer agreement
with Libya, but stressed it
didn't specify al-Megrahi's
case. O'Donnell said he
found no evidence that BP
pressured the Scottish gov-
ernment to release al-
Megrahi.

"It's clear to me, those
who think there was some
sort of conspiracy cooked
up between BP, the British
government and the Scots

that's not right,"
Cameron said.
The bombing aboard the

Pan Am 747 jumbo jet on
Dec. 22, 1988, killed all 259
people aboard the aircraft
and 11 people on the
ground in Lockerbie town,
where much of,the wreck-
age fell.

Al-Megrahi was convict-

ed by a Scottish court in.
2001 and sentenced to 27

years in jail.

O'Donnell said Blair's
and Brown's governments
had been "primarily moti-
vated by a desire to build
on previous success in nor-
malizing relations with
Libya and to safeguard the
substantial gains made in
recent years, and specifical-
ly to avoid harm to U.K.
nationals, to British com-
mercial interests and to
cooperation on security
issues."

"The desire to see such a
result developed and inten-
sified over time as Mr.
Megrahi's health declined
and the imminence of his
death appeared greater,"
O'Donnell said.

Bahamasair: No approach on Caribbean airline deal

Such a move would "have

Jamaica has recently been
acquired by Caribbean Airlines
from the Jamaican government.

Yesterday, Minister of Public

for Bahamasair, said the Gov-

approached on such a proposal.

He said he could not com-

he, too, has “heard nothing”

that this was being contemplat-

“Very early on when the
acquisition of Air Jamaica was
being made there was casual
conversation about the prospect
of Bahamasair in some way
being associated with
Caribbean Airlines and Air
Jamaica, but there was no fur-
ther conversation about that,
and as far as I’m concerned
there’s nothing currently being
considered as to any form of
an alliance with Caribbean Air-

Farrington.

The Chairman also declined

a proposition at this time.

ere are eight sim- -

. ple reasons why
the Bahamas
Telecommunica-

tions Company (BTC) must go
through the wringer of total
change. I found them one week
day morning by calling these
numbers listed on the ‘Service

914, Repairs - Constant busy

the time of day.)

394-1714, Enterprise Sales —

225-5282, Help Line -
Answered, but no response giv-
en to accounts query.

Service indeed! . :

The wringer of change cho-
sen by the Prime Minister is the
sale of 51 per cent of BTC to
Cable & Wireless Communica-

tions (CWC). Opposition to -

this course has sprung from

many quarters, some intelligent, °

others hysterical. In the latter
category can be found our King
of Bombast, PLP chairman
Bradley Roberts, who without.a
shred of evidence claims that
“someone” is getting a 3 per
cent finder’s fee from the CWC
deal, resulting from a ‘bogus’
privatisation process. The

unsinkable Punch columnist, |

Niki Kelly, is another member
of this faction. Seeking a new
cause after herfailed campaign

to torpedo*Baha Mar, she has.
striffig/fOgethet a farrago.of .

. irrelevant claims about conflicts
of interest, job advertisements,
and timing of bids. So CWC did
not submit before the original
bid deadline. So what? After
Julian Francis’ and the Privati-
sation Committee found all the
submitted bids (including one
Bahamian) inadequate, why
should they not invite a pro-
~ posal from a new party?

Neither of these two “opin-
ion-leaders” put forth any pos-
itive views about what should
be done with BTC, but simply
attacked CWC. Presumably
they believe our telephone
company does not a need a new
owner, and can simply be left in
the hands of present Govern-
ment-controlled management,
which has had 40 years to fix
the service failings listed above
- and many others known to
any telephone user.

Other opponents of the sale
take a more thoughtful
approach. Shayne Davis, in a
lengthy letter to The Tribune,
does not object’ to privatisa-
tion but insists that it must be a
Bahamian privatisation. The
crux of his argument is that
“there are enough talented and
serious Bahamians, and enough
capital around, to get a local
group in place who will
improve the fortunes of BTC”.
This is an unrealistic view of
what makes for an effective
company. A long and coherent
history of corporate teamwork
and expeftise is needed, not
’ simply a cobbling together of
money and miscellaneous indi-
viduals, no matter how “talent-
ed” and well-intentioned. _

A similar approach was tak-
en by Bernard Evans, president
of the Bahamas Communica-
tions and Public Officers
Union, accepting that some
form of privatisation was
inevitable and desirable.

In the course of a long and
friendly interview, he had plen-
ty of criticism for the BTC
Board of Directors for holding
back progress, and gave his own
vision of the company’s future.

He drew me a diagram show-
ing that the Government should
retain ownership of infrastruc-
ture, and that four privately-
owned companies should be
created, each separately taking
on the service functions of land-
line, mobile, data, and Inter-
net.

It’s an intriguing prospect
that might work in an ideal
world, but the actualities of
Bahamian management and
finance would impose inter-
minable delays in creating such



By Richard Coulson

a complex structure.
And, of course, he remains
implacably opposed to CWC.
Without using any of the lame
and emotive, jingoistic phrases
such as “working for our colo-
nial masters” or “becoming
slaves of the white man again”,
he produced several specific
objections. to their controlling
ownership, citing bad labour

policies (the loss in the Privy ©

Council of an employee com-
pensation case in Antigua), and
a weak financial position, cit-

ing a “Sell” recommendation.

for the company’s publicly trad-
ed shares by a London stock-
broker.

Mr Evans first told me he
would refuse to negotiate with
CWC on labour issues, but
when I pressed him on what he

would do if the transaction was |

actually completed, he smiled
and said: “T’'ll cross that bridge
when I come to it.”

CWC is not a perfect com- *

pany.
- Debt

My own conversations with
independent securities analysts
in the UK and the US revealed
opinions that the group may
have excessive debt, may be

unable to. maintain its*highrdiv- :

~sidend:ywield, and suff Te-

_ly (rom TONS S fi e s and
the“effects of thetrecession
throughout the Caribbean.

One analyst remarked on the -

loss of cellular phone business
in Jamaica to their more nimble
competitor, Digicel, while
pointing out that recent CWC
management changes should be
able to partially recapture this

loss. David Shaw, CWC’s chief:

executive for the Caribbean

‘area, admitted to me that
Jamaica had been a sore spot
where they had learned a les-
son.

But against these few nega-
tives must be balanced the fac-
tors that make CWC the -best
candidate to take control of
BTC. Larger and stronger tele-
coms companies, such as Veri-
zon in the US, or Telefonica in
Spain and Latin America, have
shown little interest in the
Caribbean and have no track
record in the region. CWC was
created in March 2010 as a sep-
arate company, quoted on the
London Stock Exchange, when
it took its long-existing inter-
national operations and split
them off from the parent UK
company that does a very dif-
ferent type of business.

CWC’s international range
is impressive. With ultimate
headquarters in London, it
operates through four semi-
autonomous divisions:
Caribbean (now re-branded as
‘LIME’), with about 34 per cent
of group revenues totaling $1.16
billion; Panama, about 25 per
cent; Monaco and various
island nations, about 25 per
cent; and Macau, about 15 per
cent. The cross-fertilization of
ideas, technology and human
expertise among these varied
markets would be hard to
match, certainly not by any
stand-alone Bahamian compa-
ny, as urged by local enthusi-
asts. In the Caribbean, CWC
operates in 13 national markets,
competing in all of them, and in
all cases dominant. in landline
networks.

THE TRIBUNE



Friday D-Day for $12m AML offer

FROM page 1B

ness yesterday.

Expressing confidence that Mr Finlayson’s so-called ‘hos-
tile takeover’ would not succeed (see other story on Page
_ 1B), Dionisio D’ Aguilar told this newspaper he had been
informed by the Securities Commission of the Bahamas that
the acquiring group had 10 working days from the announce-
ment of its bid to issue documents setting out all relevant
details to AML Foods’ 1300 shareholders.

Given that Mr Finlayson and his investment vehicle, Trans-
Island Traders, unveiled their $12 million offer on Monday, Jan-
uary 31, this gives them until Friday, February 11, to meet the
10-day deadline which Mr D’ Aguilar said had been outlined by
the Securities Commission.

Once Mr Finlayson’s tender offer is in play, Mr D’Aguilar
said AML Foods’ Board of Directors had the right to issue
Directors’ Circular detailing its thoughts on the bid and its
details, something he said would “absolutely” happen.

The tender offer, the AML Foods chairman added, would
remain open for 20 working days, after which Mr Finlayson and
Trans-Island Traders had the option to either acquire the
shares tendered (something he will almost certainly do if the 51
per cent threshold is met) or reject them.

“We were told by the Securities Commission that it had to be
in by Friday,” Mr D’Aguilar said of the Finlayson tender offer-
’s release. “They have 10 days from the day they made the ini-
tial announcement, so the tender document is supposed to
come out on Friday. That’s 10 business days.

“Then, I believe the share offering remains open for 20 days,
and then they have the right to take up the shares or not take

up the shares. There’s no guarantee they'll take it up. They have |

the right to actively refuse the offer.”
The AML Foods chairman indicated the Securities Com-
mission wanted to adopt strict deadlines and timescales to
avoid any unnecessary, long-lasting impact on the market for
the company’s shares as a result of the takeover bid, which Mr
Finlayson has branded as “definitely not hostile”.

After the tender offer documents are issued, AML Foods
then has the right to respond, commenting on aspects of the bid
and telling shareholders whether it thinks they should‘accept or
reject it.

“The Board has a right to issue a Directors Circular which }
outlines what we think of the offer - is the price reasonable, and ;
other aspects, such as whether there’s good management, is the :

business plan in the right direction etc...
respond,” Mr D’Aguilar said.
Telling Tribune Business that the Board would “absolutely”

. We have the right to :

respond to the details of Mr Finlayson’s offer when they were

released, he added: “We'll harp on about the factors already
outlined. They are only tendering for 51 per cent of the shares,
not 100 per cent, so investors will be left as a diluted minority
in a company with untried and unproven management. —

Outline

“We'll outline what we’re doing well and the fact we’re
making a profit, and that much of the management has been in :

this business for 10-20 years. At that time, we’ll also evaluate the. : :

price” Mr Finlayson is offering, that of $1.50 per share, a 44.2 }

per cent premium to yesterday’s $1.04 close.

Philip Stubbs, the Securities Commission’s chairman, declined ;
to discuss specifics on the AML Foods takeover offer when con- :
tacted by Tribune Business yesterday, but said the process :
would adopt “best practices” from the draft Takeover.Code that :

the regulator would shortly issue to the capital markets indus- :

try for consultation.

“What I can say is that the Commission has beak in dia- |

logue with the group making the offer bid, and been in dialogue :
with the company that is the target,” he said. “We're discussing. :
_ with both groups best practices from the draft Takeover Code :
that we are getting ready to introduce for consultation in the }
local market, which will be implemented as part of the Securi- i
ties Industry Act. We are using these methods for this Bera :

situation as a guide.”

shareholder rights, in the Bahamian capital markets, Mr Stubbs
told Tribune Business that “it’s very, very important” to intro-
duce-such guidelines.

“As you are aware, Takeover Codes, wherever they do exist,

are usually the best way to regulate these transactions, where i

you have a substantial amount of shares involved in an offer or

bid for a public company,” he explained. “It is one way of
having rules to ensure fair and equitable dealings.

“The fact we have not had one creates situations where you

_ do not have protective rules or guidelines to follow, especially

ty shareholders.

“We want to have an enviroriment to encourage people to.

participate in the capital markets. That is part of the mandate
of the Securities Commission to ensure fair and equitable. deal-
ings.”

The Takeover Code is being introduced in conjunction with
the reformed Securities Industries Act and accompanying reg-
. ulations, which were tabled in the House of Assembly pre-
Christmas. Mr Stubbs said the Securities Commission had
been informed that debate on the legislation might start this
month.

Acknowledging that the Bill and regulations would bring
the Bahamas into compliance with international best practices
and standards, the Commission chairman said: “It is an Act that
enables a lot of provisions and responds to current principles
and objectives in running capital markets.

“The Acct itself responds to the current provisions. of IOSCO
[the global securities regulatory body]. It is important to bring

our securities laws and regulations up to modern standards. The
Act has been tabled, and the Government has committed and :

recognised it needs to. give priority to getting it legislated.”

BIG blasts URGA ‘double standards’

FROM page 1B

there was a regulatory “level playing
field” between itself and BISX-listed
Cable Bahamas as Significant Market

' Power (SMP) operators, contrasting the

“sliding scale” imposed on the latter with
the requirement that it instantly unbun-
dle its own broadband Internet offering
from its phone services.

As Tribune Business revealed last
week, Cable Bahamas has been given
until end-2013 to complete the 100 per
cent separation of its cable TV and Inter-
net products on New Providence and
Grand Bahama, something Mr Johnson
yesterday described as fundamentally
unfair, arguing that the BISX-listed com-
pany had not complied with its SMP
obligations and should not be allowed
to.enter other markets.

He added that the extended time peri- .

od given to Cable Bahamas to ‘unbundle’
those services would “stifle” consumer
choice and the arrival of new competition
into those.markets, since for two years
new and existing Bahamian customers
would be required to take both services
- even though they may only want one.

» Describing the decision by the Utilities
Regulation & Competition Authority
(URCA) as “outrageous”,

complaining for some time. We can’t
understand why Cable Bahamas has
been given this sliding scale. going on for
two years, which seems to us goes against
consumer choice and competition, which
is URCA’s primary mandate. °

“Tf it’s good for us as an SMP. player in
this market, it should be applied to oth-

‘er SMP operators. I don’t think that’s
: unreasonable. That’s why this particular
: decision has left us perplexed.

“If everybody plays by the same rules,

i BTC has no objection. We want to
; ensure a level playing field, and that car-
: riers with the same SMP designation and
: obligations are held to the same stan-
: dards.”

i. BTC, he added, was now petitioning
+ URCA to obtain a “better understand-

ing” of the reasons for its decision on
Cable Bahamas.

BTC’s argument is that while it was
immediately forced to untie its broad-

: band DSL. Internet service from its

phone products, Cable Bahamas has
been given much greater latitude in'com-
plying with its SMP:-obligations, thus
leading toits charge that the latter is get-
ting off ‘lightly’, while it is subject to a
‘heavy-handed approach’ by URCA.

- Tribune Business reported on Friday

that Cable Bahamas had to:compléte the:

products at 20 per cent of its New Prov-
idence nodes, plus 10 per cent of its
Grand Bahama nodes and 15 per cent
of those in Abaco and Eleuthera; by end-
2010. It successfully met this, enabling it

- to meet the SMP obligations.

Cable Bahamas has to complete
unbundling at 45 per cent of New Provi-
dence nodes by end-December 2011,
achieving 75 per cent by end-2012 and
100 per cent at end-December 2013.

On Grand Bahama, the 2011 target is
30 per cent, with the 2012 and 2013
thresholds 70 per cent and 100 per cent.
For Eleuthera and Abaco, the job is sup-
posed to be 50 per cent coniplite this
year, and concluded in 2012.

_Mr Johnson yesterday told Tribune
Business that while Cable Bahamas was
the “dominant player” in broadband
Internet, for two years a significant num-



ber of Bahamians would also be forced to *

take its cable TV services to access this
product, even though they may not want

the latter. This, he added, “stifles” com-

petition-in both markets.

BTC, Mr Johnson said, had to pene

significant ‘ ‘man hours and money’

dents in respect of the treatment of com-
panies with significant market power
(SMP) within the Bahamas.:

"Simply put: It is outrageous! What is
happening is that Cable Bahamas has
been granted an additional two years to
ensure that any one of its customers can
buy Internet services from that company
[has] to buy cable television services .

"At the same time, the regulator some
two years ago insisted that BTC sepa-

‘ rate its Internet service from basic phone

service - a requirement that BTC com-
plied with. Why the double treatment?
Why must those consumers who only
want Internet service be forced to buy
cable television service from Cable
Bahamas, while at the same time BTC is
forced, to provide its Internet and tele-
phone services separate and apart. It is
an egregious decision.

“While URCA accepts that Cable
Bahamas maintains SMP in the provi-
sion of basic Internet service, the regu-
lator has willingly been complicit in per-
mitting Cable Bahamas to use this posi-
tion to force‘its customers to buy a tele-
vision service that tbe customer may not
want.

“This is not fair to those consumers
who only want to buy a single service, nor
does it help develop the market place
for broadcast television. Hard as we try,

-we cannot find a single solitary angle

that would give. justification to this
action.” . |.

Mr Johnson added: “It is our view that’
the provisions in the regulatory regime

- suggest that. BTC and the other licensed

operators should have been given the
opportunity fo assess the impact of the
generous ‘concession granted to Cable -

- Bahamas with respect to the untying of

its broadband service from pay televi-
sion while it was still in the draft stage.
“Why 1 is it that BTC and other opera-
tors in the market did not have an oppor-
tunity:to respond to these incredibly gen-
erous.allowances to’the dominant player

unbundling its own products, some thitd 5 in the broadband and broadcast televi-

it accepted it had to do.
“We're perplexed and cannot under-

‘stand the rationale,” he told Tribune

Business, adding that the situation gave

BTC “pause” before it looked at expand-'

ing into other markets it was not already
in.

“Our prominent concern is that there
is equitable treatment based on the stan-
dards implemented by: URCA itself, he

- told this newspaper.
In a statement, Mr J ohnson aid: We

find it impossible to find even a remote-

ly digestible justification for this ruling on

the part of URCA. ‘It is wholly incon-

“sistent with URCA's’staféd mandate in

respect of customer choice and its prece-

sion market?"
And Mr Johnson said: "BTC is sim-
ply fed up with this double standard

_being exhibited by URCA in its dealing

with BTC vis-a-vis Cable Bahamas. We
both have reasonably been deemed dom- .
inant players in the various segments of
our market, and with that has come the

‘Significant Market Player [SMP] desig-

nations and obligations. ’“And while
BTC has expended significant resources
to date in its efforts to comply with its
‘SMP obligations, it seem pretty clear to
us that Cable Bahamas has been given a
free ride, despite the fact that they had
and have fewer obligations to satisfy the
regulatory when compared to BTC."

Mr Finlayson is offering.

they tender to buy 100 per

AML Foods investors below a

presently unknown.

that the larger shareholders

to assure everyone that the’
larger shareholders in this
company are committed to
our current management, and
have no intention at this time
to sell their shares.

“Those people getting wor-

should-go, let me tell them
that the.big boys are quite
adamant and very determined
to retain control of the com-

people to do is stick with cur-

they will realise far more val-

The AML Foods chairman
added: “We’ve got a good
business plan, and expect
results to improve in the
fourth quarter. Last year was
a difficult year, as it was for
City Markets. We have
clawed back, and our sales for
the full year came in at less
than 2 per cent down on last
year, SO We were happy with
our performance.”

Some $2 million of $8 mil-

training programs for Bahami-
an workers under the Baha
Mar project is anticipated to go
towards training of construc-
tion workers, funding a pro-
gram which the Mr Wrinkle
expects to be. “the. mest suc-
cessful private-public training
initiative that has ever been
undertaken in this country or
the Caribbean”.

Training

He said yesterday that Baha
Mar had appointed a training
program liaison officer within
its management team, and the
BCA is confident that the com-
pany “are working as hard as
they can” to get the training
initiative up and running in con-
junction with the BCA, the
Bahamas Technical Vocational
Institute (BTVI) and the
Department of Labour, .

“We are well aware that
work is moving forward on this
initiative,” said Mr Wrinkle of
the skills program. He noted
that meetings have taken place
between the BCA, Baha Mar

and BTVI, but not yet with the:
- Department of Labour.

The next step, he said, will

- be for the stakeholders to

“meet as a committee to deter-
mine the direction the training
will take”.

A key element of moving
ahead successfully is identify-
ing the schedule of works to be

undertaken to ensure that train- -

ing is geared towards “deliver-
ing results that‘are beneficial”
to the contractors who will be

undertaking the works, said Mr

Wrinkle.

“Training has to be specifi-
cally targeted towards the type
of work that will be available
on the Baha Mar project, with a
view to maximising who can be
employed,” he added.

“There will be a lot of con-
crete work to begin with. Then,
as the project proceeds, we will

_ need people trained in roofing

and glazing, and then as it
moves forward there will be the
interior fit out, hanging doors
and installing fixtures. We are
supposed to identify those

. items.as per Baha-Mar’s con-

struction schedule, and prepare
the trainees to enter the pro-
ject. We need to be at least 90

Obama says White House,
execs must work together

JIM KUHNHENN,
Associated Press
WASHINGTON

President Barack Obama
prodded American businesses
to do their share to help the
economy, calling on execu-
tives to "get in the game" and
begin investing nearly $2 tril-
lion accumulating on their
balance sheets.

The president, in a speech

_ Monday to the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce, called for a
cooperative relationship with
the private sector and argued
government and business
have a shared responsibility.
He highlighted new efforts by
his administration to improve
the nation's infrastructure,
invest more on entrepreneurs
and foster greater innovation.

Obama needs the centrist
cloak that the business com-
munity the chamber repre-
sents can offer, as he seeks to
win independent voters for
his reelection bid next year.
The Republican-leaning
chamber can benefit by soft-
ening the sharp edges it devel-
opéd fighting Obama's health
care overhaul and tighter
financial rules.

Both sides also need each
other to win on areas of poli-
cy where they share common
interests, such as trade deals.

To a polite, subdued audi-
ence he offered a‘stout
defense of government regu-
lations, even as he promised
to eliminate those that are too

’ burdensome. He reached

back to history, invoking Pres-
ident Franklin Delano Roo-

sevelt's outreach to corporate ©

leaders and evoking the
strains of self-sacrifice
expressed by President John
Kennedy.

"I want to be clear: even as
we make America the best
place on earth to do business,

businesses also’have a respon- .

sibility to America," Obama
said. "As we work with you
to make America a better
place to do business, ask your-
selves what you can do for
America. Ask yourselves
what you can do to hire
American workers, to support
the American economy, and
to invest in this nation."
Obama said his appearance

at the Chamber was in the .

interest of "being more neigh-
borly" — literally true as the
trade organization's head-
quarters are so close to the
White House that Obama was
able to walk across the street
to make his comments. His
appearance came as Obama
aims to smooth his relations
with corporate leaders and

The Chamber and the
White House have feuded
loudly over the past two
years, particularly over the

overhaul of financial regula-
tions meant to address weak-
nesses that led to the Wall

Street meltdown in 2008. But

in the’ aftermath of ‘the

gave Republicans control of

House and the Chamber have
focused on areas of common

ing differences. ©

anticipated by the business
community. Chamber Presi-
dent Thomas Donohue intro-
duced Obama, saying seats at
the event were "one of the

Obama, who has faced lib-
eral criticism for his overtures
to Republicans and to the
business community, argued
on behalf of the financial reg-
ulation and health care initia-
tive that his administration
pushed through Congress last
year. "The perils of too much

regulation are matched by the |

dangers of too little," he said.

He called for changes in the
corporate tax code and
increased exports, but point-

edly warnhéd his audience that ~

businesses could not translate

_those benefits into "greater

profits and bonuses for those
at the top."

"We cannot go back to the
kind of economy - and cul-
ture - we saw in the years
leading up to the recession,
where growth and gains in
productivity just didn't trans-
late into rising incomes and
opportunity for the middle
class," he said.

Still, the Chamber and the
White House have mutual
interests.

Obama needs the centrist
cloak that the business com-
munity can offer, as he seeks
to win independent voters for
his reelection bid next year.
The Chamber can benefit by

softening the sharp edges it
developed fighting the health
care overhaul and tighter :

financial rules.

Both sides also need each
other to win on areas of poli- :
cy where they share common ;

interests.

The Chamber can help the }
Obama administration win :
congressional support of trade :
deals, particularly a recently :
renegotiated pact with South :
Korea. It can also act as :
Republican ballast against the :
influence of the conservative ;

tea party movement.

Both the White House and }
the Chamber face Republi- :
can opposition from fiscal :
hawks within the GOP to ;
increased spending on public :
works, from roads and bridges:
to wireless networks. Thé }
chamber has called for such }
spending to be paid for with :
user fees, such as a higher :
gasoline tax. The White :
House has not embraced that :
approach, saying only that the :
administration wants to cre- }
"infrastructure bank" :

ate an
to attract private capital.

The Chamber, which has :
long advocated for changes in :
immigration law, could help :
Obama by pushing Republi- :
cans reluctant to take.up such

a politically charged issue.

Obama cited a recently
finalized trade pact with :
South Korea, which is await- :

ing ratification by Congress,

as an example of the type of }
agreement he would like to }
pursue with Panama and :
Colombia. But the president :
did not specifically detail what :
adjustments were still need- :
ed in those negotiations to :
- complete a deal. :

After Obama's speech,

Senate Republican Leader :
Mitch McConnell pressed for :
action on Colombia and :
Panama, saying, "the time for :
delay on these two agree- }

ments is over."

"It won't be enough for }
Republicans and it shouldn't :
be enough for the business :
community to allow the :

da to start and end with South :
Korea," he said. "We should :

Geithner in Brazil to
boost US economic ties:

AIRLINE STOCKS TRYING
TO PULL OUT OF TAL

DAVID KOENIG,
AP Airlines Writer
DALLAS

Volatile oil prices and mas-
sive storm-related flight can-
celations have helped push
U.S. airline shares down by 10
percent in less than a month.

The stocks rallied Monday,
as oil prices fell and South-
west Airlines Co. reported a
big jump in January traffic.

Southwest said traffic last
month rose 13 percent from a
year ago. A key revenue mea-
surement increased between 8
percent and 9 percent, reflect-
ing higher prices. The report
offered more evidence that
travel demand is rebounding
from the worst of the reces-

.sion. The news helped
west shares rise 2.6 percent,
and other airlines gained too.
‘The Arca Airline index was
up 1.2 percent on Monday.

That followed a week in
which the index lost 2.6 per-
cent, capping a 10 percent
slide since Jan. 14. Over the
same period, the Standard &
Poor's 500 stock index rose
1.4 percent.

Michael Derchin, an airline
analyst at CRT Capital
Group, said aviation lagged
mostly because of worries
» bout rising prices for fuel.
.\long with labor, it's one of
an airline's biggest expenses.

Since mid-January, oil .
prices have stubbornly stayed
near or even slightly above
the $90-a-barrel mark, levels
not seen since 2008. ‘The price
of jet fuel on the spot market
has soared 44 Ip the...
past year, to ©. wee
with most of the increase
coming in the past six months.

_ The airlines were.also hit by
the third major winter storm

week, according to flight
tracking service
FlightAware.com.

The airlines haven't dis-
closed estimates of losses
from all the cancelations, but
Helane Becker, an analyst
with DahIlman Rose & Co.,

‘said Monday she estimates
the industrywide loss from
last week's storm at about
$100 million.

my heart,” he said.

68-year-old Arlington King could °

hardly breathe and his chest felt
- “hard as wood”.

After managing to drive him- -

’ self to a nearby clinic, Mr King,
who up until that point had nev-

er experienced heart problems,

was told by doctors that his heart
was blocked.

“IT was going to check on my
phone bill. When I arrived at Lit-

Texaco I could not breathe. My

to drive with my mouth open. I

clinic and when I got inside I
couldn’t talk. I hit my chest and
the’ nurse told them that I was
having complications breathing,”
Mr King, the dean of Hope
Academy High, told Tribune
Health.

A doctor in the emergency
~ room examined Mr King and told
him that his seizures were due to
gas reflux. However, another doc-

would not last another minute
without the proper treatment.
Mr King had an ECG (Elec-

FINANCIAL PROBLEMS

King have surgery to remove the
blockage and to have a stem put
in. However, this posed another
problem for the 68-year-old.

“JT didn’t have any money. I
had already spent money on the
two ECGs which were $500 each
and I had to come up with
$12,000 for the surgery. So I
asked the doctor what was my
chances were without the surgery
and he told me I didn’t stand a
‘chance. But my daughter saw to it
that I got the money for the
surgery and carried out all of the
doctors’ instructions. I did every-
thing that they wanted me to do.
I was able to secure the funds,”
Mr King, said.

The following week Mr King
was scheduled to have the
surgery. His.chances of surviving
were 50/50, doctors said.

The surgery was scheduled to
take place at Doctors Hospital,

_ but as the time came new obsta-
cles cropped up.

“The doctors came in the room

saw me still there. They asked
the nurses why I wasn’t over to
Doctors Hospital yet. And the
nurse shout out, ‘he has financial

embarrassing thing because my
‘daughter had already secured the -

funds and paid the hospital,” he
said. :

When it was time for the anaes-
thetic, Mr King told doctors that
he wished to remain awake
through the entire surgery.

“The doctors told me that I had
a 50/50 chance. So I said if [had a

what was going on. I wanted that
to be my last wish because I did
not want to die. with my eyes

that whatever happens, happens.”

: SUPPORT

The medical professionals
granted Mr King his wish and his
family showed him support
through it all.

“They numbed the area and I
couldn’t feel a thing. But I could
see everything that was going on.
It was an experience that I cannot
express in words and I thank God
for those doctors because they
are smart. Their whole heart, soul
and mind went into what they
were doing. There was a nurse

the care that they did,” he told

This occurred three years ago.

Today, at age 71, Mr King is
doing better than ever.

“TI am doing great. lam taking ~

my medication on time, following
the doctor’s advice'and doing
what I love and that is teaching,”
he said.

Mr King gave a word of advice
to individuals who might be expe-
riencing a similar situation.

“I would tell people to make
sure you have regular check-ups.
It’s important to have family for
support. The main thing is to
know in whom you put your trust.

not be as fortunate as me. Fol-
low the doctor’s instruction and
do whatever you can do for the

said.

Organisation,

FEBRUARY is “Heart Month”

and persons all around are wearing
red ribbons and/or “Go Red for
Women” dress pins to symbolise
their support in the fight against
heart disease in general and more ,
specifically in women.

In the Bahamas, Heart Month j is

being observed by the Sir Victor Sas-.
soon (Bahamas) Heart Foundation
with its 47th Annual Heart Ball at
the Sheraton Nassau.

Under the theme, “Saving little

hearts for 50 years, one beat at a
time”, the ball will be held on Satur-
day, February 19.

Heart disease is the number one

killer of persons in the Bahamas and
around the world.

Recent vital statistics provided by

the Department of Statistics show 24
per cent of the deaths in the
Bahamas are directly related to heart
disease.

According to the World Health
“cardiovascular dis-



|

. ease, often referred to as heart dis-

ease, is caused by disorders of the
heart and blood vessels, and includes

coronary heart disease (heart

attacks), cerebrovascular disease
(stroke), raised blood pressure
(hypertension), peripheral artery dis-
ease, rheumatic heart disease, con-
genital heart disease (heart disease in
babies) and heart failure. The major
causes of cardiovascular disease are
tobacco use, physical inactivity, and
an unhealthy diet.”

Prevention, education, early detec- ,

tion and proper treatment are very
important to the preservation of life,
especially in adults,

For many this simply means quit-
ting smoking, eating right and exer-
cise. But children are a different mat-
ter.

For parents of children with heart

defects the choice to take steps to

preserve their child’s life is easy.
However, the process can be taxing
mentally, emononally, spiritually and

financially.

Without support, a parent is often.

left in despair.

The Sir Victor Sassoon (Bahamas)
Heart Foundation’s was established
50 years ago with the aim of helping
persons in the Bahamas, who could

not ordinarily afford heart care, to
obtain it.

Today, the Heart Foundation’s
main role is to assist children with
heart repair.

To achieve its goal of assisting par-
ents and children, funds must be

raised. The Foundation relies heavi-'

ly upon the generosity of others to
meet their needs. It accepts dona-
tions and welcome individuals and
organisations to host events, to sup-
port its cause and raise funds. Addi-

_ tionally, the Bahamas Heart Asso-

ciation seeks to provide round sup-
port.

They raise funds through mem-
bership dues, and take a preventative
approach to heart care in persons of

all ages. The Annual Heart Ball is
the major fund raiser of the Heart
Foundation. It is hosted by a group of

' volunteers who aim to raise funds

for heart care and create awareness.

The ball will feature live perfor-
mances by the Ed Brice Orchestra,
the S-G Band (Soulful Groovers)
and the Royal Bahamas Defence
Force Dance Band.

Organisers said there will also be
lots of table prizes, an in-house raffle
and auction with an exclusive collec-
tion from John Bull. One of the high-
lights of the evening will be the pre-
sentation of the Lady Sassoon Gold-

green smoothies is not just to enjoy a
great tasting drink, but to encourage
people to get more greens into their
everyday food lifestyle and to facili-
tate an increase in the nutritional val-
ue we derive from them.

We have already established that
when most of us eat a salad, we don’t
normally chew the greens long enough
for them to become juice like.

This means we are not breaking
down the cell walls of the greens which
consist mainly of cellulose, which is
very difficult for our bodies to digest,
so that we can actually access the
dense nutrients that the greens sup-
ply.

As a result, drinking your vegeta-
bles (via blending) can provide more
of their benefits because the blender
assists with the ‘chewing’ process in
advance (without the loss of fibre),
which allows the greens vital nutrients
to be released and more efficiently
absorbed and digested into the body
than when youeatthem. ——.

Of course while-blending greens
makes it easier to consume, and more
fun and more tasty (for some), this
should not replace you eating/chew-
ing them.

Before we get into the specific ben-
efits, let’s give a little green smoothie
history shall we?

In 2004, raw food expert and author
Victoria Boutenko and her family,
though already enjoying a raw food
lifestyle for more than 10 years which
had allowed them.to reverse their most .
‘serious conditions, felt that they still
hadn’t realised the most vibrant health
they were looking for.

As a result, Victoria embarked on
finding the ‘perfect’ human food
lifestyle for her family.

She began by looking for an animal
genetically close to human beings. This

led her to studying the eating habits of

wild chimpanzees who share an esti-

APPROACH:

when it is okay

Situation cool
down.



At the: same time he possess an
extremely strong natural immunity to
AIDS, Hepatitis C, cancer, and other
fatal human illnesses.

She thought that if humans and
chimpanzees share 99.4 per cent of the
same genes, then our food lifestyles
should also be 99.4 per cent similar?

When she compared the two, how-
ever, she found that the opposite was
true.

That is, the Standard American Diet
(SAD) is about 99 per cent different

’ from that of wild chimpanzees.

Over 50 per cent of most SADs con-
tain cooked carbohydrates such as.
potatoes, bread, pasta and rice.

Approximately 35 per cent fats, oils
and animal proteins and the rest fruit,
vegetables and greens.

This should sound familiar to most
of you, because the BAD (Bahamian
Average Diet) is very similar.

The chronic diseases of humankind
are not seen in wild chimps, so maybe
we should ask. the question, ‘why not .
take a leaf out of their book?’

Once reviewed, the difference is
crystal clear — the lifestyle and what
they eat is blatantly different.

The biggest difference being that —
chimpanzees consume significantly
more green leaves than humans.

They consume these greens in con-
junction with fruit. :

Based on these observations, Ms
Boutenko proceeded to perfect the
basic green smoothie recipe: 60 per
cent fruit and 40 per cent greens,
blended with a little water.

According to Ms Boutenko, greens
are the primary food group that match
human nutritional needs most com-
pletely. ,

They are loaded with amino acids,
(the building blocks of protein), min-
erals, vitamins, fibre and.chlorophyll.

Unlike other vegetables, it is said
that greens can be combined with any

Dodging the Fall

THE words dodging, evasion, pre-
vention and avoidance have both con-
structive and dysfunctional applica-
tions.

For instance, avoidance can be a
calculated action taken that will serve
the greater good.

You can take actions that can help
you to avert a catastrophe and save
jobs or you can decide on avoiding an
immediate decision because it takes
time to weigh the risks.

There are times when it is okay, to
wait and let a situation cool down.

This can be a productive approach
as heightened emotions impede com-
munication.

Avoidance is an action or lack of
action propelled by a decision. and
’ often times, the decision is propelled

by an emotion.

This article will explore the darker
side of avoidance, why it happens, and
what can be done about it.

When avoidance is in a dysfunc-
tional mode it can be driven by fear or
anger.

When a person is in a negative
avoidance mode, the quality of com-
munication diminishes.

It is important to note that commu-
“nication can shut down whether or not
a person is still engaging you in con-
versations.

There are some who choose to lit-
erally stop all forms of verbal and writ-
ten communication, others leave the
channels open but their responses are
vague, circular or confusing.

| Sometimes the responses are pas-
sive aggressive, where a person is giv-

ing the facade of co-operation but -

there is no intention to follow through
with constructive action.

When the intention behind avoid-
ance is not driven by fear, but by a
need to take a step back and view the

}



big picture, it is functional if procras-
tination does not set in.

When avoidance is driven by the
fear of a low performance rating, job
loss or the loss of a good customer,
because of incompetence, a lack of

' integrity, a low tolerance for mistakes

or a lack of knowledge it can end up
with disastrous outcomes.

DYSFUNCTIONAL
AVOIDANCE TACTICS

Here are a few ways both employees
and people leaders avoid and nega-
tive responses:

Avoiding the subject can be
achieved by changing the subject or
pretending the subject was never men-
tioned. It is also-done by answering a
question with a question.

Minimisation is a commonly used
tactic that is used to create a positive
spin.

The intention behind minimisation
is to mislead by creating a false sense
of security.

For instance, some persons will a
general statement that everything is
going well or they misrepresent the
facts in other ways.

A way to test this is to ask for spe-
cific information,

Others avoid by screening their calls,
not responding to emails or at an
extreme, hanging up on others.

other food and will enhance digestion
by stimulating enzyme production.

This is because there is a substantial
difference between green leaves and
vegetables. Green leaves don’t have
starch while vegetables such as car-
rots, beets, broccoli, zucchini, daikon,
etc, contain a lot of starch. Starchy
vegetables combined with fruit may
cause bloating.

Contrary to that, fibre in green

~-}eaves helps slow the absorption of

sugar in fruit making this combination
beneficial.

Hence, the combination of greens
and fruit in green smoothies is gener-
ally acceptable.

Here are 10 answers to the ques-
tion, ‘What are the benefits of con-:
suming more dark leafy greens (espe-
cially in the form of.a green smooth- .
ie)?’

° Regular Digestion

They are full of fibre which is very
important for good colon ecology
and elimination of waste.

e Experience fewer cravings for sug-
.ary and salty processed food

In the words of Khepra Anu, ‘You
are what you eat because you eat
what you are. Change your cravings,
change your health, change your
life!’

e Fewer mood swings

¢ More radiant skin

When your bowels are moving cor-
rectly, your body can eliminate tox-
ins in an efficient manner. Usually
someone with acne and other skin
problems have a problem with regu-

.lar bowels. When the toxins cannot
_leave through the bowel regularly,

they have to leave somewhere else,
often times this is via your skin.

8 Weight loss

There is a saying, ‘people who are
overweight are actually malnour-
ished!’

This is because we are eating nutri-
tionally ‘empty’ rather than dense
foods. With an increased amount of
nutrients, your body will be getting
-what it needs, thus a higher feeling of
satisfaction, and less snack attacks! -



Blame is a common way that
employees divert attention from them-
selves. Blame is sometimes accompa-
nied by half truths designed to appease
fact seekers.

As previously stated, avoidance can
be a passive aggressive strategy that
is responded to et passive or overt
aggression.

HOW AVOIDANCE
IMPACTS OTHERS

Using avoidance as a delay tactic
only frustrates the people impacted
by the delay.

In response, frustration can result
in tension or even shouting and pro-
fanity, especially if the avoidance is
creating an unfair situation where
someone feels disadvantaged or dis-

empowered by the circumventive.

behaviour.
In extreme cases an avoider’ s safety
can be put at risk, causing them to
‘constantly look over their shoulders
in anticipation of some type of retali-
ation.

INTRODUCING
ACCOUNTABILITY

The whole point of SOeEiue the fall
is survival.

When avoidance occurs because of

fear or cowardice, the reasons under- .

girding the evasive action can be fear
of consequences, circumvention of
conscience, or no conscience at all.
In fear or anger driven circum-
stances, dodging the fall is about avoid-
ing responsibility and accountability.
Unless the avoider has a cathartic
personal experience and honesty and
integrity become priority values that
drive courageous action, it is highly
unlikely that evasion will cease
because the need to survive is over-
rides or nullifies the need to be honest.

If personal transformation is not an
option, another way to transform this
type of behaviour into functional
behaviour is through effective leader-

impact of avoidance behaviours on
their efforts to build a cohesive, moti-

ways they develop accountable
employees:

° Take assertive action to correct
unwanted behaviour. This can
include handing out warning letters
and deptnding on the risks created
by the avoidance tactics, termina-
tion. This sends a clear message that
avoidance will not be tolerated.

e Reward appropriate behaviour

° Coach direct reports and peers.

© Model desired behaviours.

° Provide learning opportunities.

application of the learning produce a
much lower return on investment

. than training used in conjunction

. As a people leader, it is important to
select the right combination of inter-

be adequately addressed and authentic
change can begin.

As a leader, it is imperative to sus-
tain the behaviours necessary to effect
change, otherwise, sporadic attempts
to create long-term change will be
pointless.

or bed rest.

e Warm up or stretch before

exercising or other physical
activities, such as gardening.
e Maintain proper posture.
e Wear comfortable, low- .

.¢ Sleep on a mattress of
medium firmness to min-
imise any curve in your
spine.

e Lift with your knees, keep
the object close to your

Byron Ferguson Jr making his presence felt at Trinity Christian Academy

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

wo years ago, Byron Fergu-

son Jr’s parents, Byron and

Roberta “Bobbie” Fergu-

son, made a decision to send him off

to complete his high school educa-
tion in the US.

Since making the necessary adjust-
ment from playing softball and run-
ning track at St Augustine’s College,
Ferguson Jr is now making his pres-
ence felt at Trinity Christian Acad-
cemy in Lake Worth, Florida.

Last month, 17-year-old Ferguson
Jr participated in the Pre Season
Under Armor All-American Tour-
nament at the Diamondbacks Train-
ing Facility in Arizona.

The tournament was held in Jan-
uary and:showcased the top players
from around the country as they
competed in not only running, but
fielding, pitching and hitting.

IN its second show of-the
year, one of the Bahamas’
leading boxing clubs contin-
ued its goal of building young
amateur fighters for a future

"in the sport. ee

Champion Amateur Box-
ing Club hosted the "Econo-
my Car Lot" Boxing Show at
the Wulff Road Boxing Cen-
ter on February 5.

Eight bouts were featured | ©
on the night with aclosely “|
contested main event head- |
lining the card in the bantam"
weight division. \

Lester Brown Jr won on |
points over Tyrone Oliver 9-6,
and the fight between the two
was also named the "Best
Fight of the Night".

In just a short time span,
Brown has already been fea-
tured in over 50 bouts and has
been tagged as one of the
most promising up-and- com- |
ers in the club.

In other matches, Peterson |
Wra won on points over |
Aaron Butler (8-6), Devante |
McPhee won a third round |
TKO over Garvin Rolle, Jer- +
‘maine Allen won on points’
over Kendrick Stuart (10-6),
Keno Newman won on points |
over Anton Brown (5-3),
Kenzell Armbrister won on
points over Trae Johnson (7-
5), Sunny Beneby won on |
points over Alexander Stur- |
rup (13-9), and in his second
match of the day, Wra would
lose in a second round TKO -
over Garrett Bain.

McPhee was named the | -
most improved fighter, Bain
was the most valuable boxer
and the Economy Car Lot
award went to Allen.

Club organiser Ray Minus
Jr said events like this one are







the tournament that
was designed for
potential college
and minor/major
league teams.

During the tour- }
nament, Ferguson’s
speed was also test-
ed as he had to
compete in the 60-
vad ach, excelling FERGUSON JR.
to number six over-
all with a time of 6.75 seconds.

On hand to view the tournament,
Ferguson Sr said he was extremely
pleased with the progress his 5-feet-
11, 185-pound son made, and that
he has a younger brother, Travis,
waiting to follow suit.

“He is definitely in the top 20. per
cent of grade 11 and 12 baseball
players.in the country,” Ferguson Sr
said. “In terms of 12th graders, he
should definitely be right up there
next year when the rankings are
released from the tournament.”

Said Ferguson Sr,'a former sprint-
er for the Big Red Machine: “He
has a very good: work ethic. He

works really hard and he’s very com-
petitive,” he said. “He tries to be
the best among the group of players
that he’s involved with right now.
“I think over the last year and a
half, since he went off to school in
Florida, he has been doing very well.
So to be there in Florida and watch-
ing him perform against the best
high school players from across the
country was a proud moment.”
During the tournament, Ferguson
Sr said he got to watch his son per-
form well in the two positions that he

. participated in for Trinity - pitching

and outfield.

“He pitched really well and he
looked very well on the outfield,”
he said. “He also had a 700 batting
percentage and so he got on base
most of the times and he also had
about six stolen bases.

“He didn’t strike out. Whenever
he got out, it was either from get-
ting thrown out or hitting into a play.

He also pitched well, so it was a’

proud moment to see him in that
competition.”
As an 11th grader, Ferguson Sr

said if his son can continue to per-

form the way he is right now, he
should be able to secure a scholar-
ship to a major university at the end
of his 12th grade next year.

“We have a number of colleges

already sending him their informa- -

tion, so it’s just a matter of trying to
find the right fit for him,” Ferguson
Sr revealed.

Ferguson is one of many players
from the Junior Baseball League of
Nassau (JBLN) attending. school
abroad in the US. He teams up with
Byron Murray Jr and Anthony Rus-
sell at Trinity Christian Academy.

of Richard Bain, who in 2009 was
drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies

Looking back at their decision
when their son completed grade. nine
at SAC to send him off to school,
Ferguson Sr said if he had to do it all
over again, he would do the same
thing again.

“At. first it was a a kind of tough

move. It wasn’t so much a gamble,

but a tough move,” he said. “But
looking at it in retrospect, it’s been a
good move because he has really
matured over the last year.

“Whenever he comes home, you
could see how much he has grown
up because he has to cope on his
own. His grades have also gone up,
so it’s much better for him because
the school is very academic con-
scious.”

Having just completed the pre-
season, Ferguson Jr is now preparing
for the start of the spring baseball
Monday when he gets the starting —
nod'as the pitcher for Trinity Chris-
tian Academy as they take on
Jupiter High in the opener of the
Santaluces Tournament.

The tournament is slated to con-
tinue Tuesday against Santaluces

Drogba set to return, African teams head to Europe

By GERALD IMRAY
AP Sports Writer



JOHANNESBURG (AP) —
Didier Drogba is set for his inter-
national return after a seven-month
break as Africa's top teams head
to Europe for a series of friendlies
this week.

Chelsea striker Drogba was
included in Ivory Coast's squad for
the first time since its final game at
last year's World Cup.for the meet-
ing with Mali in Valence, France
on Tuesday.

Ghana — newly established as

~ Africa's highest-ranked team at No.

15 in FIFA's standings and playing
under new coach Goran Stevanovic
for the first time — take on fellow.
west Africans Togo in Belgium.

On Wednesday, Cameroon is
away in Macedonia and DR Congo
and Gabon face off in another
France-based 4ll-African affair in
Rouen.

South Africa is at home to Kenya
and Nigeria plays Sierra Leone.

Drogba makes the relatively short
trip from London to southeast
France after last playing for his
country in a 3-0 win over North

Korea in the group stage in South’

Africa last year. The victory was-

‘Coach Francois Zahoui also

Manchester City and Emmanuel

er Ya Konan.

Zahoui most ahead of the next
round of African Cup of Nations
qualifiers. in late March.

The Ivorians have won two from
two in the qualifiers and have lost
just once to Mali in 20 matches.

Serb Stevanovic held his first
training session with Ghana on
Monday in unfamiliar Antwerp

after officially taking over from
compatriot Milovan Rajevac on
Feb. 1.

All but one of his 19-man squad is
based in Europe, including trou-
blesome midfielder Sulley Muntari,
who is on loan at England's Sun-
derland. Michael Essien is still

~--absent, though.

Muntari had run-ins with Raje-
vac during the African Cup of
Nations and the World Cup in 2010,
and was left out of Ghana's opening
Cup of Nations qualifiers late last
year. However, he has been given
another chance under Stevanovic.

Chelsea midfielder Essien hasn't
played for his country for nearly a
year after being granted an inter-
national break by the Ghana foot-
ball association.

Ghana is currently locked in a
battle with Sudan and Congo for
control of its 2012 African Cup
qualifying group.

Togo is unlikely to qualify from
its group after slipping to fourth, 10
points behind surprise pacesetter

Botswana.

Also Tuesday, Botswana is away
to Mozambique after staying
unbeaten in eight games before a
2-1 loss to Sweden in Cape Town in
January.



Spain targets

Win in friendlies

LONDON (AP) — Spain
is targeting a morale-boost-
ing win over Colombia in this
week's international friend-
lies, several of which have
been severely disrupted by
injuries to key players.

The Netherlands and Eng-
land will be understrength for
Wednesday's games against
Austria and Denmark after
players withdrew with prob-
lems picked up in the English
Premier League at the week-
end.

Spain is without captain
Carles Puyol and Cesc Fab-

Colombia in Madrid but can
still call upon the likes of
Andres Iniesta, Xavi Her-

win in four friendlies since
adding the 2010 World Cup

Schools dismissed early

‘Monday and people took off

work so they could see the

Dozens of fans helped clear ©

they shuffled back and forth,
duntally chipping away at ice

dams and dumping snow onto
a conveyer belt, which carried
it to the field where bulldoz-
ers pushed it aside. All for

tionally asked fans to clear

ing the season, but this time
was different.

PITTSBURGH (AP) — A

The Pittsburgh Steelers

If there's one franchise that

the Steelers.

WINNING RIDE: In this publicity image released by Disney, Super Bowl MVP Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers takes a celebratory ride with Mickey Mouse at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.,
after the Packers’ 31-25 victory over the Eiepunan Steelers in the NFL football Super Bowl XLV game Sunday.

MVP Rodgers celebrates Super
Bowl victory at Disney World |

By KYLE HIGHTOWER
Associated Press

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Aaron

Rodgers’ smile never faded as he

rode on the back of a convertible
pacing down a confetti-filled parade
route through Disney World's Mag-
ic Kingdom on Monday afternoon.
The Super Bowl MVP. was oper-
ating on only a few hours' sleep fol-
lowing Green Bay's 31-25 win over

Pittsburgh Sunday. But even with a.

Florida afternoon storm threaten-
ing in the distance, it was clear noth-
ing could cloud the Packers quar-
terback's spirit.

"It's a special day, it really is,"
Rodgers said afterward. "I didn't
get a lot of sleep (Sunday) night, but
it's great to be able to celebrate.
This is a team that came together
and accomplished something spe-
cial."

Rodgers became the latest Super

Bowl MVP to participate in Disney's.

"I'm going to Disney World" com-
mercial series Sunday night, which
celebrated its 25th anniversary this

year. Former-New York Giants Phil

Simms was the first to do it following
the 1987 Super Bowl. Rodgers flew
to Orlando from Texas on Monday.

A California native, Rodgers said
he had been to Disneyland in Ana-
heim, but never to Orlando's Dis-
ney World. Thousands of fans lined

Main Street in the theme park Mon- _

day, many of them decked out in
Packers' jerseys, T-shirts and cheese-

-head hats.
Rodgers posed for photos with °

the Disney characters and even took

a bite of a specially-made block of.

cheese in the shape of.a Packers
emblem.

Rodgers said that even with the,
victory, he doesn't expect the com-

parisons to former Green Bay quar-

terback Brett Favre to end. Favre

led the Packers to their previous
Super Bowl win in 1997, but unlike
Rodgers, was not the.game's MVP.

"I don't think they ever stop

because I'm the guy-that followed .

him," Rodgers said. "But I hope.
You know, we're doing something
special in Green Bay right now and
I hope people can recognize that.
I'm proud of the way our team came
together this season.

"Thankfully, I have two parents
that raised me the right way and
pushed me to be the best at whatev-
er I did. And J wanted to be a foot-
ball player. So, right now I'm at the
top of my game."

Longtime Packers fan Mike Got-
tlieb has lived in Orlando for the
past 25 years, but is originally for
Milwaukee.

One of the founders of the Central
Florida Packer Backers, a fan club
that started in 1987, he 52-year-old

Gottlieb and ‘the group had about’

100 of its members at Disney on

‘Monday to see Rodgers. Also one of
the publicly-owned Packers part-. |

owners, Gottlieb said he thinks the

ghost of Favre no longer hangs over

Rodgers.

"T don't know if there was a mon-
key on his back, because the Packers
did what they said they were going
to do," Gottlieb said. "They said
they were going to stand by him, no
matter what happened to Brett and
they did. And I think (Rodgers)
appreciates it, too. ... I think he'll
be with the Packers forever and he
could have another three or four
(titles) in him."

Rodgers passed for 304 yards and
three touchdowns in his first Super
Bowl appearance.

. He said was still thinking about
his underwhelming effort in Green

Bay's 21-14 NFC championship

game win over Chicago. He threw
two interceptions and no touch-

downs in that game, though’ he did :
have a 1-yard touchdown run. "

"I'm a perfectionist," Rodgers —

said. "If I played a little better I
think I'd be a little more ‘satisfied
with my postseason, but I prepared
to play well (Sunday) and I was able
to meet those expectations."
_ Next up for Rodgers is to rejoin
his teammates for a celebration at
Green Bay's Lambeau Field on
Tuesday. But he said it's the
moments with them Sunday night
after the game that are continuing to
play in his mind.

"Just in the locker room after the
game and being able to reflect with
my teammates," he said. "Big hugs.
It's a special group of men. I think
you realize at that point the season is
over and that group of men is never
gonna be together again. It's just
special to be able to share with those
guys because we went through a lot
together this year."

including one that was later rescinded by

Mark Wilson wins frost-

delayed Phoenix Open

By JOHN NICHOLSON
AP Sports Writer

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.
(AP) — Packers fan Mark
Wilson celebrated a big vic-
tory of his own on a playing
field about as close to frozen
tundra as it gets on the PGA
Tour.

A self-described cheese-
head from Menomonee Falls,

Wisconsin, Wilson won the —

frost-delayed Phoenix Open
on Monday for his second
_ victory in three starts this
year, holing a 9-foot birdie
putt on the second hole of a
playoff with Jason Dufner.
"I'm just enjoying the ride
here and that's just kind of

the way I'm going to look at . |...

the year here, just ride this
train as long as I can," Wilson
said. ane

After playing until dark
Sunday and fulfilling some
’ parental duties, he was able
to watch only a few minutes
of the Super Bowl.

"I had to wash Lane's face
and put his jammies on, and I

had to eat, too," Wilson said.

"The chaos, with two little
kids running around — I like
the chaos; it's a good distrac-
tion. But at that time, I want
. to at least get to watch the
last 15 minutes of this game.
This doesn't happen every
year, the Packers in'the
Super Bowl. i
"Luckily, my-son, after we

‘ . played Candy Land in the

middle of the fourth quarter,
' he said, 'OK, the last two
minutes we can watch it
together.’ So we watched that
last stand, and I was happy
that ‘they somehow pulled it
off."

Delays for frost and frozen
turf the first four days forced
the Monday finish.

.

JUST SHORT: Jason Dufner watches his birdie shot from the bunker
come up short of the hole on the 18th green in the final round of the
Phoenix Open Monday. Dufner finished second in the tournament.

Two strokes, ahead when
play resumed Monday, Wil-
son closed with a 2-under 69
to match Dufner at 18 under.
Dufner shot a 66, with birdies
on Nos. 16 and 17.

"I was a little more ner-
vous today than I was expect-
ing," Wilson said. "I didn't
sleep great last night. It was
probably the excitement with
the Super Bowl and the
uncertainty of today."

The Sony Open winner last
month in a 36-hole Sunday
finish, Wilson made a 4-foot
par putt on the par-4 18th to
extend the playoff. He won
on the par-4 10th, setting up
the deciding putt with a .7-

iron approach from the mid-

dle of the fairway.
"That was an easy putt,"

(AP Photo)

Wilson said. "Just thankfully,

I started it-on line and

knocked it in."

Dufner was facing a 7-foot
par putt when Wilson ended
the playoff.

"Came out and made a
couple birdies to. put maybe a
little heat on Mark, and he
played great," Dufner said.
"Great two-putt on the first

. playoff hole from 70-plus feet

and makes birdie on the next
hole." ' ;

Wilson earned $1,098,000
for his fourth PGA Tour title.
The 36-year-old former Uni-
versity of North Carolina
player also won the 2007
Honda Classic and 2009

. Mayakoba Golf Classic. He
. jumped from 91st to 51st in

the world ranking — locking

MARK WILSON

up a spot in the 64-man
Match Play field - after fin-
ishing last'season at No. 230.

After resuming play Mon-
day on the 13th green, ‘Wil-
son made seven straight pars
before holing the winning
birdie putt.

He nearly. drove into the
water on the left side of the
18th hole in regulation, but
the ball cleared the hazard
and ended up in a bunker.
He hit a 9-iron approach to
about 14 feet and two-putted
to force the playoff.

"I got away with a bad tee
shot on 18, but luckily got a
good bounce and was hop-
ing I'd finish it off there,"
Wilson said. "But the play-
off.was fun."

VALLE:

A Breeze



Dufner is winless on the
PGA Tour. He also settled
for par on the final hole of
regulation after nearly hol-
ing out from a greenside
bunker.

"It's a good start to the
year," Dufner said. "To be
honest, this is a course that I
never really thought I could
compete on. History on this
golf course is a lot of long-
ball hitters. Mark and myself
probably aren't the longest,
but we're probably not the

shortest. But to be able to =

compete and be at the top of
the field for the week is good,

.so it's definitely good.

momentum for the rest of the
West Coast swing."
Martin: Laird (65) and

Vijay Singh (66) tied for third.

at 16 under, and Gary Wood-
land (66), J.B. Holmes (67)
and Nick Watney (68) fol-
lowed at 15 under...
Third-round leader Tom-
my Gainey,,a:‘stroke back
with two holes left, closed

with a 74 to tie for eighth at —

14 under. He made a triple
bogey on the par-4 17th after
hitting into the water twice
on the driveable hole.

"I guess I've just got to
deal with it," Gainey said.

"You've got to win with class_

and you've got to lose with
class, so I'm trying to deal
with that right now."

Phil Mickelson tied for
29th at 10 under. He finished
with consecutive 71s after
getting into contention with

opening rounds of 67 and 65: .

Mickelson, second a week
ago in San Diego, needed at
least a solo third-place finish
to pass Tiger Woods for No.
3 in the world. Lefty hasn't

béen ranked ahead of Woods

since the week before the
1997 Masters.

Kan to defend
WA title

MANCHES-
TER, England
(AP) — Amir
Khan will defend
his WBA light-
welterweight title
against European
champion Paul
McCloskey on
April 16.

In his first fight AMIR KHA
on home soil since
2009, the British fighter will face
the Northern Irishman at the
MEN Arena in Manchester.

"Home is home and I love
fighting in England," the 24-year-
old Khan said Monday. "Not
many people can afford to travel
all the way to America to see me
fight. "McCloskey's not a pay-
per-view fighter and he agrees
with that."

Khan fought in the United
States last year, defeating Paulie
Malignaggi and Marcos Maidana.
He has a career record of 24 wins
(17 KOs) and one loss.

There had been speculation
that Khan's next defense would
be against Victor Ortiz or Zab
Judah. But he has settled for the
31-year-old McCloskey, whois
22-0 but hasn't fought any big
names.

"I've never really met him but
he's meant to be a great fighter,
undefeated and European cham-
pion," Khan said. "It's going to
beabignightforme. . .

_ "He's.a tough guy. For him, it's
going to be a big fight. He'll be
fighting for a world title. I'm giv-
ing him that chance." - ~~

- But Khan is already looking .

past the bout. He wants to meet
WBC and WBO champion Tim-
othy. Bradley before stepping up

a division to fight Floyd: May- '

weather Jr.

"I want to unify the division in
the summer," Khan said. "My
dream is to become pound for

‘pound champion. of the world

and to do that I'll have to fight

. one of them. te

"I'm a big fan of Mayweather
but sometimes you have to share
the ring with-one of your heroes.”
