THE Ministry of Finance
plans to allocate $18 million
for.the Bahamas Telecommu-
' nication Corporation to take a
sizable chunk off the govern-
ment’s electricity debt.

There is “far too much
wastage” in the public sector
where energy consumption jis
concerned, and the govern-
ment is “determined to make
significant improvements,”
said Prime Minister Hubert
Ingraham in the House of

OPPOSITION MP Dr
Bernard Nottage called on the
government to hold a nation-

Claiming that there remains
widespread opposition to the
sale from a “broad cross sec-

will be the only way to deter-

ernment is acting in line with
the wishes of the people they

GOVT ‘TO PRIORITISE ZNS
UPGRADES’ IN NEXT BUDGET

By NOELLE NICOLLS

nnicolls@tribunemedia.net

THE government plans.to prioritise
much needed upgrades to the capital infra-
structure at ZNS in the upcoming budget,
said Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham, in
the House of Assembly yesterday.

Mr Ingraham did not reveal the figure
the government intends to allocate, but he
said money will be set aside to advance
the digitisation process.

He said the capital injection will be addi-
tional to the $4.3 million that will go
towards financing the recent separation

‘ package and operational expenses.

Late last year, the Broadcasting Corpo-
ration of the Bahamas laid off 80 workers
in a downsizing exercise. In October, Prime
Minister Ingraham said the government
would have to invest between $1.5 to $2
million to upgrade the facilities at the BCB

Police search for company to [0

provide closed circuit television

By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
aturnquest@tribunemedia.net

THE SEARCH for a company to
provide closed circuit television in
New Providence has commenced.

The Royal Bahamas Police Force
issued a request for qualifications
(RFQ) tender for phase one of their
CCTV solution for the capital yes-
‘terday.

The public notice invited interest-
ed persons to download the docu-
ment from the Bahamas government
website or.,;www.royalbahamaspo-
lice.org: Copies of the RFQ are also
available at the Police Training Col-
lege.

An integrated network of CCTV
cameras was slated to start this year
to monitor the streets of Nassau;
part of a new initiative to assist
police in the fight against crime.

Plans formulated by the National
CCTV Steering Committee with
guidance from American consul-
tants Hudson Sterling LLC are
expected to be implemented later
this year as 85 cameras'across New
Providence are linked by a national
control centre. :

Stakeholders representing private
enterprises, government depart-

ments and sections of the police |

force gathered to discuss plans in
December.
At that time, committee mem-

bers said that existing CCTV sys-
tems in Cable Beach, Woodes
Rogers Walk in downtown Nassau,
in the East Street South police dis-
trict, and Cable Bahamas offices
have already greatly assisted police
efforts.

By extending CCTV into high
crime areas in inner-city Nassau,
and throughout the busy business
areas and tourist hubs, the public-
private partnership hopes to crack-.
down on crime in Nassau and across
the Bahamas.

The completed proposal — along
with three copies — must be placed
in sealed envelopes marked
“Request for Qualifications for the
Closed Circuit Television Solution”

and deposited in the Tender’s Box
at the Ministry of Finance, Cecil
Wallace-Whitfield Building, West
Bay Street.

Documents should be submitted
no later than 9.30am on Tuesday,
March 22. A tender opening will be
held at 10am at the Ministry of
Finance.

The Bahamas’ first police-moni-
tored Closed Circuit Television Sys-
tem was launched in December
2009 at the Southeastern Police
Division of New Providence. °

The system's value was said to be
its ability to deter criminal activity,
and assist in evidence collection,
convictions and police response to
criminal activity.

ments acknowledged by Act-
ing Minister of Foreign Affairs

~ and Minister of National Secu-

farewell reception for the
ambassador of Brazil.

The reception for Tomas
Mauricio Guggenheim,
Ambassador of Federative
Republic of Brazil, was held in
Lower Gardens of the Min-
istry ‘of Foreign Affairs, East
Hill Street last week.

“The tangible results of the
strengthened © relations
between our countries during
your tour of duty are worthy
of note,” Mr Turnquest said.

“Weare solidly advancing
the roadmap of technical assis-
tance agreements discussed,
having already agreed provi-
sionally to those for agricul-
ture and education, with those
for health and tourism under
active review,” Mr Turnquest

~ said.

Other success are the con-
clusion of a Visa Abolition
Agreement for holders of

diplomatic and official pass- -

itors especially by cruise ship,
and an examination of the
potential for mutual benefits

in the financial services sec-

tor.
Ambassador Guggenheim

took up his post in 2006 as ©

Brazil’s first Resident Ambas-
sador in the Bahamas; diplo-
matic relations were first
established in 1976.

“Your tour of duty in the
Bahamas has marked the
beginning of a new and flour-
ishing era in the relations
between our two states, as
well as between your country
and the entire Caribbean
region,” Mr Turnquest said.

Brazil is widely recognised
in international affairs. It is
the largest country in Latin

America and is said to be a |
leading emerging economy

and the probable first choice
from this hemisphere for a
Permanent Seat on the United
Nations.Security Council.
Mr Turnquest also recog-
nised Brazil for playing a vital

Press Attaché
Embassy of The Bahamas

WASHINGTON, DC -
Stringent new import regula-
tions in the United States could
affect the
Bahamas’ multi-million dollar

marine export sector, US

Ambassador CA Smith said.
The ambassador attended:a
US Food and Drug Adminis-

: tration (FDA) Office of Inter-

national Programmes special
briefing on the Food Safety
Modernisation Act (FSMA),

signed into law by President .

Barack Obama in 2010.

The purpose of the briefing
was to share information about
the provisions and implemen-
tation of the new law, which
has — according to, one official —
200 pages of provisions and 50
distinct “deliverables.” The law
is expected to be a challenge to
implement, and portions of it
have potentially major implica-
tions for the importation of
food into the United States.

After the briefing, Ambas-
sador Smith noted that the new
regulations were certain to have
an impact on the Bahamas
marine export sector.

In 2008, the Bahamas export-
ed about 2,400 tonnes of fish
(just over half the number of

fish produced that year) at a-

value of over $80 million. There
were 11 fish processors and 18
fish exporters at the end of
2008. The new regulations will
no doubt have a pronounced

affect on this important indus- .

try.
FDA official Michael Taylor
noted that the FSMA is the first



significant update of food safe-
ty legislation in 70 years. He
summarised the aim of the new
law as an attempt to minimise
risks in the US food supply, and
framed the provisions of the
law as an attempt to enforce
standards for the prevention of
food-borne illnesses.

Deputy Commissioner for

‘Foods Steven Solomon focused

on how the law goes about risk
reduction.

He pointed out that the new
law requires the FDA to
inspect 600 foreign facilities in

- 2011, and double that number

next year.
The FSMA also gives the

_FDA new authority: food from

a facility that declined FDA
inspection can now be refused
admission into the US.

Other new powers include
the authority to mandate recall
‘of contaminated foods if no vol-
untary recall is issued (com-
plainants have two days within
which to request a hearing on a
recall) and increased registra-
tion requirements, particularly
re-registration, which will only
be completed upon compliance:
with FDA inspection require-
ments. :

Dr Daniel McChesney, direc-
tor of the Office of Surveillance
and Compliance in the Centre
for Veterinary Medicine, talked
about the new focus on pre-
ventive controls, which include
a ramped up set of standards
‘for documentation of hazards
and hazard mitigation. He said
the FDA will institute a foreign
supplier verification pro-
gramme to ensure parity of pro-
tection: inspection and certifi-
cation will be part of this pro-
gramme.

ee was previously treated
for TB.

In 2008, health officials
conducted TB screenings
of shipyard employees
after three expatriate
workers were diagnosed
with the bacterial disease.

Following the incident,
the Ministry of Health put
certain protocols and
requirements in place
regarding the screening
process of employees com-
ing to work at the GB
Shipyard that would
ensure they are tested by
local health professionals
before starting work.

“I want to set the record
straight that there are no
new cases of TB at the
shipyard. This one individ-
ual who works at the ship-
yard, who is known to us,
has subsequently showed
evidence of TB,” Dr Min-
nis told a local newspaper.
He noted that the indi-




medication, which may
have caused the infection
to return.

The minister said the
infected worker has under-
gone all the necessary
screenings and health offi-
cials have met with ship-.
yard personnel and union
officials on the matter. ©

Mervin Wright, presi-
dent of Grand Bahama
** Port Authority Workers
Union, told The Tribune
yesterday that the union is,
satisfied the matter is being |
properly addressed.

“We met with the Minis-
ter of Health and his team
of health professionals and
we are quite satisfied that
they are following proto-
col.

“I am satisfied that they
are attacking this problem
from every angle just as

they did in the last instance : .

when this thing surfaced
down there in-2008.

“We were told it was an
isolated incident, arid I
believe this is an isolated
case and I have no reason
to doubt their professional
opinion as it seems they
are doing everything possi-

ble to take care of this mat- i

ter.”

Mr Wright said shipyard
workers were not over-
whelmingly concerned
about the incident.

- Convicted murderer
expected hack in
Court today for

sentencing hearing

A MAN convicted of

murdering his former girl-
: friend, whose body was

found inside a grave in the
Bahamas Veteran's Ceme-
tery, is expected back in
court today for his sentenc-
ing hearing.

Angelo Poitier, 24, was
convicted last October of
the murder of Shanice
Adderley, 19.

The young woman's
body was discovered inside
a grave in the Bahamas
Veteran's Cemetery on
Infant View Road on May
27.

Autopsy

According to an autopsy
report, Ms Adderley died
as a result of blunt force
trauma to the body.

Poitier denied killing
Adderley in an unsworn
statement from the prison-
er's dock.

He claimed that he had
unwillingly signed a con-
fession statement over
fears that police would '
brutalise him.

Attorney Terrell Butler
represents Poitier.

US, Europe intensify bid to isolate Gadhafi

WASHINGTON — The United States and
European allies intensified efforts to isolate
Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi on Monday,
redoubling demands for him to step down,
questioning his mental state and warning that
those who stay loyal to him risk losing their
wealth and being prosecuted for human rights
abuses.

Europe, which buys most of Libya's oil
exports, outlined fresh sanctions to force the
dictator'to stop attacks on civilians and step

down after 42 years of iron-fisted rule. The |

European Union issued travel bans and an
asset freeze against senior Libyan officials, and
ordered an arms embargo on the country.

Germany proposed a 60-day economic
embargo to prevent Gadhafi from using oil
and other revenues to repress his people.

The EU has much more leverage over Libya
than the United States since Europe’ buys 85

per cent of Libyan oil exports and Gadhafi-

and his family are thought to have significant
assets in Britain, Switzerland and Italy. Switzer-
land and Britain already. have frozen Libyan
assets. The travel and financial sanctions are
aimed at peeling away loyalists from Gadhafi in
the hope of further isolating him.

"These sanctions and accountability mech-
anisms should make all members of the Libyan

regime think about the choice they have before.

-them: violate human rights and be held
accountable or stop the violence and respect
‘the Libyan people's call for change," U.S.
Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice
told reporters following crisis meetings on

Libya at the White House. "There's no escap-

ing that critical choice."

As the Pentagon moved naval and air forces
closer to Libya amid active international dis-
cussions about imposing a no-fly zone over the
country, the U.S. Treasury Department
announced it had frozen at least $30 billion in
Libyan assets since President Barack Obama
imposed financial and travel sanctions on Gad-
hafi, his family, senior Libyan officials and the
government last week. That figure is the largest
amount of money ever frozen by a USS. sanc-
tions order, which also set out travel bans for

the Libyan leadership. Administration offi-

cials said that as long as the government con-
tinues its violent crackdown against opponents
who now control most of eastern Libya, all
options, including military ones, remain on the
table. Speaking in Geneva to the U.N. Human
Rights Council, Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton said the United States and Euro-
pean nations were exploring the idea of restrict-
ing airspace to prevent Gadhafi's government
from bombing its citizens.

"Gadhafi has lost.the legitimacy to govern,
and it is time for him to go without further
violence or delay," she said.

At the Pentagon, officials said they were.
moving forces in the region in case they were

ne¢ded but did not say what they might be
used for. |

The U.S. has a regular military presence in
the Mediterranean Sea, two aircraft carriers
in the Persian Gulf area and a wide range of
surveillance equipment available for use in the
region. Without specific information about
what assets were being moved and where, it
was impossible to tell whether the U.S. moves
were intended as a military threat or were sim-
ply a symbolic show of force.

A flight ban seemed unlikely in the short
term. Senior US. officials said the issue was not
discussed during Clinton's meeting with Russ-
ian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, whose
country would have to support such a‘ move if
the U.S. and its allies wanted authorization
from the U.N. Security Council. Lavrov dis-
missed the idea in public remarks.

Even before the EU announced the new
sanctions, France pledged to send two planes
with humanitarian aid to Libya's opposition
stronghold of Benghazi after days of increasing
concern about the hundreds, and potentially
thousands, of deaths. After meetings with oth-
er nations'. foreign policy chiefs in Geneva,
Clinton said the U.S. was sending two aid teams
to help Libyan refugees. One would go to

Egypt and the other to Tunisia to deal with ,

the influx of fleeing Libyans. The U.S. has
pledged an initial $10 million to help refugees.
Gadhafi, meanwhile, in an interview with

“ABC News, dismissed the idea of leaving,

rejected the allegations that he had ordered.a
crackdown on opponents and repeated his
belief that the Libyan people love him, a claim
that was met by derision in Washington.

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley

said the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Gene Cretz, |

who has been in Washington since early Janu-
ary for consultations, had been speaking to. a
broad range of Libyan opposition figures but
declined to identify which ones.

He also said the Libyan government had

notified the administration that it had fired its
ambassador to the United States, Ali Aujali,
who last week joined the opposition, and had
replaced him with a Gadhafi loyalist.

The U.S. closed its embassy in Tripoli on
Friday after the remaining diplomats were.
evacuated but has not broken diplomatic rela-
tions with Libya. Last Monday, Aujali joined
other Libyan diplomats in calling for Gadhafi
to step down although he said he would not
resign his post as’ ambassador.

Amid the flurry of international activity,

Obama kept up his telephone diplomacy and

discussed Libya with Canadian Prime Minister

Stephen Harper. Obama expressed his appre- °

ciation for Canada's decision to impose its own
set of sanctions against the Gadhafi regu;
the White House said.

“the Rt. Hon. P. M.

I don't recall an

MP ever being
so disrespectful

EDITOR, The Tribune

I realize that I am 61 years
of age and I also realize that it
is a ripe age for Alzheimers
to start to set in on some
human beings.

However, unless I am los-
ing my memory I do not
remember any member of

. Parliament ever being so dis-

respectful that they would try
to inject their wishes on Par-

liament while a Minister of'

Finance was delivering any
type of Budget.

Wednesday, February
23rd, is. a sad day in the life of
the Bahamas for more than
one reason.

1. That is what I remem-
ber as-the first time this has
ever happened.

‘2. It is anyone's legal right
to demonstrate as long as they
have the permission to do so

. in a civil manner.

3. When demonstrators
stop demonstrating and start
to try breaking down barri-
cades it is no longer a peace-
ful demonstration.

On Friday afternoon I was
on my way to the airport and
listening to Mr. Steve McK-
inney's talk show. and I was

shocked by some of what I

heard on airwaves that just a
short time ago Bahamians did
not have the privilege of lis-

‘ tening to. How soon we forget

who made these airwaves
open for the public.

They were bad mouthing

uncertain terms and blaming

Wednesday while the demon-
stration was taking place.

have spent the last two,
days trying to figure out why ©

they were upset because any-

one who was.in the demon- —

stration and did not.intend to
break the law had nothing to
fear from the dogs. On the

other hand the Police with.

their secret information must
have had a very good reason
to have dogs there. Remem-
ber to be forewarned and pre-

pared is the smart thing that -

anyone does. So if the Police
knew that there were going
to be criminal-minded per-
sons in the group then they

did the right thing to be pre- -

pared to protect the innocent
people who were on the other
side of the barricades.

These are very troubling
times when we have MP's get-
ting on public platforms and
deliberately trying to incite

take the law into their own
hands because some politi-
cians are so desperate for

- power that they do not care

who gets hurt or what gets
destroyed in this country as
long they can get this power,
all to the detriment of the
majority of Bahamians.

If the majority of Bahami-
ans were not happy about the
sale of BTC the demonstra-
tors would have no problem

_in getting support and no one

would have to bus and pay
people, to come to Bay Street.

I hear a lot being said
about Bahamians owning
BTC, but I would like any
Bahamian who is not on
BTC's payroll to tell me how
much money they have made
from BTC during the last 20
years.

However, Bahamians from
all walks of life will now have
the privilege, if they want to
buy shares, to do so and say:
“T now for the first time in my

life own a piece of BTC -

because as it stands now I do
not own anything in BTC ‘it
belongs to the Government.
of the Bahamas..- Also
through all the talk about

ames

Bluewater buying BTC, I
have never heard a single
word uttered about Bluewater
agreeing to put any shares on
the market for Bahamians to
buy so I have to assume that
whoever was behind Bluewa-
ter wanted it “all for me
baby” style and that suggests
enough to all sensible
Bahamians for them to figure
for themselves who was prob-
ably behind Bluewater’s pur-
chase attempt.

Sadly it was not so very
long ago that my good friend -
Chuck Virgil, I believe, was
the victim of words that were
uttered from the platform at a

rally.

We are all first and fore-
most Bahamians who have to
live in this country together
and we should all be proud
to be Bahamian and also we
have to be big enough to real-
ize that in any race in life
there will always be a winner

- and a loser, but this does not

mean that we have to tear
down what it has taken so
long to build up in. the
Bahamas, we all have our
children and future genera-
tions to worry about and it is
our duty from God that we
leave a better place behind

Some union leaders have shown
extraordinary incompetence

EDITOR, The Tribune.

-It’s interesting that in the year 2011; some rerpie in our
Bahamas are still try to bring racial tensions to our country just
for political power, and to cover their incompetence. I’m refer-
ring of course to the leadership of the PLP party and to the

leaders of some of the unions.

The PLP leadership claim they don’t want BTC to be sold to
foreigners. Yet despite all their press statements, they still haven’t
told the Bahamian people who they were prepared to give BTC
away to . Who is behind Bluewater? Are the beneficiaries for-
eigners or is it simply a PLP leadership alliance? J am pretty sure
that if it is a PLP alliance the vast majority of PLP voters would
not get anything out of the deal. They never do anyway.

Some union leaders have demonstrated extraordinary levels of
stupidity, racism and incompetence. They don’t want to answer
to the white man. If this is how people feel then why work for
Atlantis, Baha Mar.or any other major company owned by:a
“white” man. If union leaders want to turn our country into a “lit-
tle Egypt”, they will soon realise they don’t have the support they
think they do. Most Bahamians aren’t prepared to let their coun-
try be destroyed just to accommodate the PLP’s political ambi-
tions and the union radars. s “fat” salaries. :

Constant Working
Pressure Hoses

The failure of the Police to properly investigate a report of
_armed robbery last August led to an innocent person being
detained at Her Majesty’s Prison for six months.

Kemir McDonald was picked up off the street after a lady (com-
plainant) pointed him out to a police officer as looking like the sus-
pect who had robbed her one week earlier. Kemir did not fit the
description of the alleged robber.

Later at the Police Station he was placed in a line-up of persons
(identification parade) bearing similar description to the robber,
and each person in the line-up was requested to repeat the words
used by the robber at the scene.

The complainant failed to identify Kemir. Kemir’s house was
searched and nothing was found to connect him to the robbery.

Kemir denied the allegation against him and gave the Police an
alibi.

He told the Police that at the time of the offence he was at his
father’s birthday party, which fortunately, was attended by some
thirty family members and friends.

The police failed to check this easily verifiable story, and he was
charged. .

On such flimsy evidence I am surprised that the Senior Police
Officer and the Director of Public Prosecutions in the office of the
Attorney General allowed this case to go to the Supreme Court.

The case was heard in the Supreme Court before judge and
jury and family members and friends were able to testify on
Kemir’s behalf.

One of the family members had taken a photograph of Kemir at
the party and the film bore the exact date and time it was taken
confirming that Kemir was nowhere in the area of the robbery. The
prosecution could not convince one juror that Kemir was the.actu-
al culprit, and the jury, after being properly instructed, returned a
unanimous verdict of not guilty. Kemir was at last freed.

‘The downside of this episode is that had the police done a prop-
er job Kemir would not have had to languish in prison for six
months.

As a former police officer, Director of Local government and
now an Attorney-at-law I wholeheartedly support the police in the
fight against crime which is overwhelming us, but I put this matter
to your readers to express my ire and that of the family in the way
Kemir’s case was handled.

Preserving the legacy
of Sir Sidney Poitier

HIS acting roles have run the
gamut from the debonair doctor
turned dinner guest to the tena-
cious FBI agent on the trail of a
. vicious killer, but Sir Sidney
Poitier’s mark of distinction
extends far beyond the trailblazing
roles he played as a black actor on
the silver screen.

A talented artist, visionary and

humanitarian, Sir Sidney’s classic

characters were once again:

brought to life last week as the
College of the Bahamas and the
School of English Studies hosted a
film festival in his honour for the
second consecutive year.

“Sir Sidney has been widely
recognised not only for his ground-
breaking contributions to the arts,
but because ‘many of his roles chal-
lenged pre-conceived notions
about race, class and socio-eco-
nomic status,” festival organisers
‘said. ‘

Appearing in more than 50 films,
Sir Sidney — who grew up in Cat
Island — set for himself standards
of performance that were viewed
as impossible for black actors at
the time. Among his most distin-
guished achievements is an Acad-
emy Award win in 1963 for his

‘lead role in the film “Lilies of the °

Field.”

Creator and organiser of the
2011 Sidney Poitier Film Festival,
Dr Ian Strachan, Associate. Pro-
fessor in the School of English
Studies, believes that the actor’s
legacy should be preserved for
future generations. \

“The festival is a key means of |

achieving that goal. Last year, the
College also hosted the Sidney
Poitier International Conference

that provided a platform for schol-

ars and film enthusiasts to explore
and debate Poitier’s achievements,
contributions and legacy,” organ-
isers said.

Dr Strachan described this year’s

festival as an opportunity for
Bahamians of various age groups
and walks of life “to share in his
legacy, a legacy, which he has left

to the entire world.”

, in which Poitier starred
alongside Clarke Gable, “Porgy
and Bess”, his one film with
Dorothy Dandridge, and “The

Defiant Ones”.

According to Dr Strachan, the
film festival, which he hopes will be
an annual event, will broaden its
scope of artists and offerings in the
future.

“In future festivals, we envision
broadening the selection of films to
include works by other black and

Bahamian artists,” he said. “We

also want to continue the tradition
of hosting academic discussions
that explore cinema of the black

-experience and therefore we’re

considering hosting a bi-annual

conference. Last year’s conference ©

proved very successful.’

The College, he said,is commit-
ted to supporting the development
of the arts and facilitating experi-
ences for intellectual and cultural
exploration and empowerment. As

it continues to develop academic °

al needs, the institution recently

Associated Press

A TEAM of elite divers
donned wetsuits and air
tanks and descended into
the murky waters beneath
the 498-foot (152-meter)
container ship M/V
Seaboard Pride, on a mis-

‘ sion in the dark to.search

for an unusual stowaway:
drugs.
The seven members of the

U.S. Immigration and Cus- -

toms Enforcement dive
team, formed in 2004 and

the only one of its kind in ©

the U.S., were searching for
large metal boxes that Latin
American cocaine traffick-
ers sometimes weld or
clamp onto freighters and

even cruise ships to smug-.

gle drugs. The boxes also

could be used to hide ter-
rorist bombs or weapons.
Once in the U.S., the box-

es can be opened by divers:

working with the drug orga-
nizations. Sometimes they
are detached and later
opened at another location.
The so-called parasitic
devices have been found on’
vessels in Miami, West Palm
Beach and elsewhere con-
taining bricks of cocaine and

‘other illegal drugs —~

although, so far, no bombs

ICE agent Dean Lang,

team, said the intense law’

enforcement focus on drug
trafficking through Mexico

another way," Lang said.

ship's hull. With two agents
staying aboard, the. divers

jumped feet-first off a sea

wall into Biscayne Bay to
execute a search known as a
— meaning
they would swim under-

‘ neath one side, circle the

ship's stern by the massive
propeller and then inspect
the other side. They held a
length of rope to communi-
cate with various hand tugs
and pulls.

"Don't squeeze too tight,"
the ICE dive team leader,
agent Joseph Skidmore, told
the men. "Just keep a loose
grip.".

It's not as easy as it seems.
The water was dark green,
even on a sunny February
morning. Currents are
treacherous -and unpre-
dictable in the relatively
shallow water about 15 feet
(4.5 meters) below the sur-
face. The divers sometimes
encounter sharks, barracu-
da and eels, and they can

‘feel strong vibrations from

the ship inches above.

It's extremely dark, and
the divers can only see a lit-
tle way ahead, said Alan
Vega, a team member who
has done about 100 dives
over the past three years.

"You have a flashlight and
it's like very burgundy red,
which is the paint they put

"And you're just kind of
scanning along ... to: see if
there is anything unusual.
It's not a nice scenic
Caribbean dive."

A few yards away from

the ship, a police boat
motors slowly back and
forth to prevent other craft
from approaching —.and
just in case there's a prob-
lem.

Sometimes a ship is tar-|
geted because it spent time
in a drug-source country
such as Colombia. Other
times, tips are received
about ships that may have
had boxes attached during
repairs or maintenance
when they are taken out of
the water.

Other dives are random,
said Anthony Mangione,
chief of the ICE field office
in Miami.

Back on the bay, the ICE
team found nothing amiss
on the Seaboard Pride dur-
ing a 20-minute search.

"Everything looks good,
but it needs cleaning," Skid-
more told the captain, Kar-
bowiak.

With that, Karbowiak and
his ship were cleared for
their next trip to the
Caribbean island of St.
Thomas. Although the
divers came up empty, each
dive is invaluable training

for ‘other missions, includ-
ing possible attempts by al-
Qaida or other terrorist
groups to use ports like Mia-
mi to bring in explosive
devices or blow up the ships
themselves.

"Smugglers, terrorists, you
know, they adapt," Vega
said. "So it could be a ship
coming in from London,
who is an ally of the US.
We'll search it, because you
never know where that wild
card is going to be."

When they aren't scan-
ning the cargo vessels, the
divers also scour waterways
when presidents and digni-.
taries visit. —

Sometimes they have kept
watch while investigating
drug trafficking and other
crimes, or helped local

* police locate guns and stolen

cars from lakes and quar-
ries.

In January, for instance,
the team made a grisly find
in a canal: a still-unidenti-
fied human skull.

It's even more difficult to
see during those forays into
fresh water, the agents said
— and tougher to watch for
alligators, crocodiles and
poisonous snakes.

"South Florida has lots of
different kinds of threats,"
Mangione said. "This is a
challenging environment to
work in."

‘tion of the United Nations (FAO),

who said: “We are indeed on the
verge of what could turn out to be
another major food crisis. The FAO
food price index at the end of 2010
returned to its highest level.
“Drought in Russia and the export
restrictions adopted by its govern-

ment, together with lower crop har-_

vests than expected, first in the Unit-
ed States and Europe, then in Aus-
tralia and Argentina, have triggered a
process of soaring agricultural com-
modity prices on international mar-
kets.”

Mr Key pointed out that it is from
many of these countries that the
Bahamas imports its staples.

“The current global economic
upheaval which has already expressed
itself in dreaded unemployment and
higher costs of living for Bahamians
begs the question:

How long:can we continue to send
some $500 million out of the country
each year for goods and services,
much of which we can easily provide
ourselves?” he asked. -

BAIC, he said, has endeavoured
to ifispire Bahamians throughout the
islands to produce .as much of their
own food as possible on the islands
where they live.

“Oftentimes we speak of food
security or self-sufficiency,” he said.
“Well, national self-sufficiency is
achieved only when the same obtains
at the local level. A self-sufficient
Exuma contributes to a self-sufficient
Bahamas.

“And, thanks to.Exumians, our
labour has not been in vain. I can see
that Exuma is on the way to becom-
ing a major producer of a variety of
fruits, vegetables and root crops.”

'Exuma was “well represented” at
the recent North Andros seminar on
greenhouse technology, he recalled.

“With quality as our watchword,
there is a bright future in food pro-
duction,” said Mr Key. “People have
to eat.”

He commended Exumians for their
initiative in taking advantage of
opportunities to provide for them-
selves rather than waiting for the gov-
ernment to do for them. ©

“You see, the real question is not
so much what can.the government

agers Arnold Dorsett (agriculture)

Protest against
the sale of the
BIC is odd

By RICK LOWE

ACCORDING to news
reports, 800 to 1,000 peo-
ple blocked Bay Street last
week to protest the sale of
BTC to Cable and Wire-
less/LIME and it all seems
odd.

Some people w were say-
ing that rights are being
violated by selling BTC.
But what rights are being
violated?

Yes, sometimes Mr.
Ingraham can be brash, but
does that mean he is uncar-
ing, a dictator, or corrupt,
or violating rights as
alleged? It's doubtful.

Using emotive language
and trying to rile people up
as some are doing could
violate rights for sure.

What the protesters are
missing is BTC is not
‘owned by Bahamians.
_ That's an illusion. A politi-
cal construct. It is owned
by the Bahamas Govern-
ment.

Over the years succes-
sive governments have led
us down the garden path by
wasting and borrowing
beyond the country's abili-
ty to sustain, and the sale of
BTC might hélp keep the
Bahamian dollar stable and
reduce some of the debt
that we all have to pay one
way or the other..

OPINION

» The Opposition seems
shameless on this one, after
trying to sell BTC them-
selves under similar cir-
cumstances to a company
called Bluewater, now it
would.seem that some are
trying to.incite people.

Another turnabout by
the Opposition was the
Constitutional Referendum
of 2002. Both parties
agreed in principle in the
House of Assembly, then
one campaigned against it,
confusing the electorate. .

The latest reason not to

‘sell is there are complaints

about LIME posted on the
Internet.

If you research ever.
company: in the world
online it seems you will find
bad comments. We survey
some of our clients, and last
quarter we had an 84 per
cent approval rating (our
goal is 85 per cent), but the
one client that complained,
really complained, bringing
the results of all the good
comments lower. Is that
what is happening with
CWC? We also find ee
often it's people with com-
plaints that fill the survey

_out. Those that had no



issues, do not take the time
to respond.

Are there similar com-
plaints about BTC going
around on the Internet?

Could the government °
have been more open? No
doubt. Both the FNM or
PLP governments over the
years could have been
more open. Promises of a
Freedom of Information
Act have been made by
each of them. Let's see who

_passes it into law. That

might. help with govern-
ment. transparency in the
future.

There were apparently
no dissenenters before
BTC was sold, at least pub-
licly. So why the dissent —
now? The government cor-

porations shouldbe sold if ~~
for nothing more than to

get politics and politicians
out of it.

All this protesting is odd.
When you dig a little deep-
er unseemly politics appear
to be at work?

“The Prime Minister seems
to have the understanding
that winning an election gives
him and his party the right to
implement any and every
programme in the way they
see fit without regard to pub-
lic concerns. Yes, winning an
election gives that party a
mandate to govern, but
democratic governance
demands that the governors
listen to the governed.”

Dr Nottage said that there
is no difference from a doctor

MP McCartney to hear constituents’

' treating a patient — you must

get consent to proceed with
significant or major proce-
dures.

“That is why we ‘hear the
idle boasting by those oppo-

site that a decision has been -

made in regard to the sale of

. BTC and nothing can prevent

it. It is that arrogance that has

caused them to go mad and

put into an agreement for sale
a self imposed penalty of $100
million if there is any breach.
That is why we hear these
false reports about bogus
polls that suggest that the

majority of Bahamians
approve the sale of BTC to
Cable and Wireless.

“And that is why the prin-
cipal decision makers, who
long ago pledged to the
Bahamian people that they
would never sell the majority
shares in BTC to a foreign
company have reneged on
their commitment; that is why
they reneged on the state-
ment that they would never
sell to Cable and Wireless.

“The only sentiment that
has not been reversed is the
statement that if BTC was

given to Bahamians to run it
would not succeed. That in
the face of the fact that
Bahamians kept Batelco, and

later BTC as one of the lead-.

ing telecoms companies in the
Caribbean until this latest

version of the FNM govern- —

ment stopped its forward
development when _ it
assumed the government in
2007.
“Indeed, in my opinion, it
is their mismanagement of
BTC these last three years
that has eroded the value of
BTC,” Dr Nottage said.

- Danish family's sailboat
hijacked in Indian Ocean

COPENHAGEN, Denmark
Associated Press

PIRATES have hijacked a
Danish sailboat with four adults
and three children aboard as they
were crossing the Indian Ocean,
Denmark's government said
Monday.

Most hostages captured in the
pirate-infested waters off East
Africa are professional sailors, not

_ families. Pirates are not known to

have captured children before.

The Danish Foreign Ministry
said the ship sent a distress signal
on Thursday. On board was a
Danish couple, their three chil-
dren — aged 12-16 — and two
adult crew members, also Danes.

"It has now been confirmed
that the sailboat was hijacked by
pirates in the Indian Ocean," the
ministry said in a statement.

Two days before the Danish
sailboat sent the distress signal,
four Americans were killed by
Somali pirates in a hostage stand-
off. They were the first Ameri-
cans slain by Somali pirates since
a wave of attacks began six years
ago.

Danish Foreign Minister Lene
Espersen said she was "deeply
concerned" about the situation
and expressed her sympathies to
the Danes on the boat and their
relatives.

"It is almost unbearable to
think that there are children
involved and I can only sharply
denounce the pirates’ actions,"
Espersen said.

Government officials will do
"everything in our power" to help
the Danes, she said, but would
not be able to release detailed
information about their efforts

publicly, "since experience shows
that it doesn't help in resolving
the case."

Danish news agency Ritzau, cit-
ing Foreign Ministry spokes-
woman Charlotte Slente, said the
boat was believed to be heading
toward Somalia.

Earlier Monday, the European
Union Naval Force said Somali
pirates hijacked a Greek-owned
cargo vessel with 23 crew on
board.

The MV Dover was seized
Monday in the north Arabian sea,
260 miles (420 kilometers) north-
east of the Omani port of Salalah,
the naval force said. The MV
Dover was on its way to Yemen
from Pakistan when it was
attacked. It was registered with

There are three Romanians, 19
Filipinos and a Russian aboard

is no communication with the ship
and no information regarding the

In a separate incident, pirates

the naval force said Monday. The
Panama-flagged vessel and its Fil-
ipino crew of 20 are believed to be
making for a safe port. There is no
information on the condition of
the vessel or the crew. The ship
was taken in October.

Mr Ingraham said the government is keeping a
watchful eye on global politics, with specific focus
on growing unrest in the oil-rich Middle East. He
said the government is “hopeful” a good scenario
will maintain, but it is preparing itself for possible
changes to global fuel prices.

At the ground breaking of the waste cooking oil
biodiesel plan earlier this month, Earl Deveaux,
Minister of Environment said the government

He called the target “reasonable”.

less. Mr McCartney said he awaited
to hear what the government's posi-

tion was with regard to the Memo-

randum of Understanding on the
sale, and that he was visiting and
meeting with persons to hear "both
sides" of the argument.

Speaking to-The Tribune yester-
day, Mr McCartney said: “The com-
munication tabled by the govern-
ment outlined certain things, such
as the advantages of Cable and
Wireless, the condition of sale, it
spoke of the Memorandum of
Understanding, and it spoke about

the future of telecommunications in °

the country. I will be explaining the
government’s perspective.”

ination of candidates and their out-

issues. With this in mind, Mr
McCartney - who has already
resigned from Cabinet for feeling
stagnated politically in his previous
Ministerial roll — said that he is the

Town and as such has to answer to
his constituents first.

Mr McCartney said: “We have a

my constituents what they have to

“Tt’s so important that they have

nine of the Bahamians,
claiming they were straw .
vendors attempting to
defraud the US govern-
ment by trafficking in
counterfeit goods. The
women faced up to three
years in federal prison.

Three months after the
initial arrests, all of the
straw vendors were back
in the Bahamas. The
Bahamas government
through the New York
consulate office and the
Bahamian American Cul-
tural Society, and other
agencies, assisted the straw
vendors.

Throughout the ordeal,
the Progressive Liberal
Party (PLP) criticised the
government’s handling of
the situation. Opposition
members of parliament
urged the government not
to\“come off as politically
impotent.” They ques-
tioned the responsibility of
the government “for being -
complicit” in the activities
of the straw vendors.

The PLP launched an
investigation into the situ-
ation and sent representa-
tives to the US to lobby on
behalf of the vendors.
They took credit for the
government’s decision to
assist the vendors and
encouraged the govern-
ment to “do more, includ-
ing getting bail for the
women and ultimately, try-
ing to get the charges
against them dropped.”

Attorney Elliot Sagor
was hired by the govern-
ment to assist the incar-
cerated vendors. The gov-
ernment also provided
assistance to the family
members of the vendors
through the Ministry of
Education, the Depart-
ment of Social Services
and the Ministry of
Labour.

Based on reports detail-
ing the concerns of the
straw vendors in US cus-
tody, the government
issued a formal notice to
the US Embassy in Nas-
sau over their treatment. —

Most of the vendors
pleaded guilty to the
charges and were sen-
tenced to time served and
ordered out of the US. At

: least one of the vendors

was served an order of
restitution, and another to
supervised probation.

The King’s Speech
reigns at Oscars,
but some want
comedians back —

NEW YORK
Associated Press |

IN THE clear light of a post-
Oscar Monday morning, at
least two themes had emerged.
The first: British royalty reigns
— again! And the second:
Bring back the comedians!

Maybe it was inevitable that
on such a predictable Oscar
night — the acting awards and
even the best picture win for
"The King's Speech" were
widely anticipated — attention

would focus on the show itself,

especially the hosting.

And many did see the charm
in hosts Anne Hathaway and
James Franco, for whom the
adjectives "young" and "hip"
seemed to become part of their
very names during the run-up
to the Oscars — especially in
their clever "Inception"-

. inspired opening montage.

But Oscar producers must
have known their telecast was
running into trouble when the
night's biggest laughs went not
to the newly minted hosts but
to former host Billy Crystal —
and even to the vintage clip he
presented of the dear depart-
ed Bob Hope, with classic
Oscar jokes that never grow
old. ,

And it wasn't lost on some
that' even the hosts’ best bit, the
montage in which they inserted
themselves into nominated
films, harked back to Crystal's
own introductory gags during
his eight years as host.

No wonder Hathaway
seemed’so admiring of Crystal
when he showed up. Not as
much as the crowd, though — it
leaped to its feet even before
he said a word. "So, where was

I?" he quipped.

So did the Academy, in its
zeal to reach a younger demo-
graphic, overreach? And do the
Oscars need a single, solid

comedian to hold the night -

together?
That was certainly the case
many were making online. "It

looks as if the Academy will

have to give the hosting hon-
ors to Ricky Gervais next
year," wrote Toby Young on
the website of the Daily Teéle-
graph of.London. "It's the only
way to save the Oscars from
certain death." On Slate.com,
a headline said the decidedly
laid-back Franco "Might Have

Been Reluctantly Emceeing a

Distant Cousin's Bat Mitzvah."

And comic Andy Borowitz
tweeted during the show: "This
is riveting television. By the
way, I'm watching the Knicks
and the Heat now."

Jamie Masada, co-owner of
the Laugh Factory comedy club

- in Hollywood, watched the

show with a group of comics
including Dave Chapelle. "It
got boring very quickly," he
said — until Crystal came on.
They all applauded.

"Finally somebody great! He

"was wonderful," Masada said

in a phone interview just after
the show. The Oscars, he
argued, need a comedian, full
stop. "A comedian keeps you
connected all evening long," he
said. "You wait to see what he
or she is going to say about

what's happening. It gives the ©

show heart."

Masada said he especially
énjoyed laughing at Hope's
famous joke, in a clip intro-
duced by Crystal Sunday, about
the Oscars, "or, as they're
known at my house, Passover."
So did film historian Leonard
Maltin, who calls it "one of the
greatest jokes ever written."

But you don't have to be a
comic to make a great host, or

deliver a classic quip. Actor |

David Niven will long be
remembered for his stellar
response to the streaker who
sped by him in 1974: "Isn't it
fascinating to think," Niven
noted drily, "that probably the
only laugh that man will ever

get in his life is by stripping off
and showing his shortcom-
ings?"

Likewise, actor Alec Bald-

' win was a hit when he hosted

alongside Steve Martin last
year, as he was in Sunday's
opening montage. As Franco
and Hathaway tried to figure
out whose dream they had

‘invaded, "Inception"-like, Bald-

win assured them it wasn't his.
"If this were my dream," he
said, "I'd be hosting the Oscars
again." (From Baldwin's dream
to producers' ears?)

You can also be a popular

comic and bomb at the Oscars
— David Letterman has made
a running joke about the bad
reviews he got for his one Oscar
SUE on?
The comic best known for his
yeoman Oscar duties was
Hope, who hosted the first of
his. 18 shows (not consecutive)
in 1940, and the first televised
show in 1953. Others included
Johnny Carson, of course,
Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stew-
art, Chris Rock, and Ellen
DeGeneres.

"Standup comedians do
know how to handle a room;"
said Jonathan Kuntz, a profes-

in a leading role for ‘The King's Speech’ at the 83rd Academy

Awards on Sunday. (AP)

sor of film and Hollywood his-
tory at the University of Cali-
fornia, Los Angeles. "They
know how to handle all kinds of
situations. They seem so much
more confident.”

This year's hosts, according
to Kuntz, were not terrible and
not great — just OK.

"They did look like they
were reciting lines," he said.

"They didn't provide any classic —

moments."

But maybe that's a little
much to ask. After all, the
Oscars are a key marketing
vehicle for Hollywood.

"And Hollywood's core audi-

* ence is younger people," Kuntz .

says. So the hosts were chosen
to appeal to that demographic.
, It's not clear yet how they

fared — an estimated 37.6 mil- -

lion viewers watched this year,
down nearly 10 percent from
2010 (but up from 2008 and
2009). Preliminary Nielsen rat-
ings said that numbers in the
18-to-49-year-old demograph-
ic were down only 2 percent

Kuntz says it's not as easy as -

assuming that a comic would
be better. With all the comics
who have hosted, he says, the
next great host has not been
found.

"They haven't found a Bob
Hope or a Billy Crystal for the
21st century yet," he says. "You
just never know until they try it.,
You just have to throw them
out there and see what hap-
pens."

Kaleme.com said Mousavi, his
wife Zahra Rahnavard, as well as
Karroubi and his wife, Fatemeh
Karroubi, were transferred to
Heshmatieh prison in the Iranian:
capital. It was not immediately.
clear when they were moved.

"According to the latest infor-
mation obtained from reliable
sources, Mousavi and Karroubi,
together with their wives ... have,
been arrested and transferred to
Heshmatieh prison,"
kaleme.com said.

But the semiofficial Fars news
agency, which is close to the
powerful Revolutionary Guard,

‘denied the report. Fars quoted

an unnamed judiciary official as.
saying the men were still under:
house arrest and have not been’
allowed to leave their homes or
have any outside contact.

Calls placed by The Associ-
ated Press to judiciary onicals
went unanswered.

The imprisonment, if con-.
firmed, would mark a major
escalation of Iran's political crisis
amid defiant calls from the oppo-
sition to stand up to the ruling
system.

Earlier Monday, Iran's state
prosecutor, Gholam Hossein
MOhseni Ejehi, said that author-
ities had cut all outside contact
with the opposition leaders as
part of a campaign to silence dis-
sent.

The official IRNA news
agency quoted Ejehi as warning

’ that authorities would take "oth-

er measures" against Mir Hos-
sein Mousavi and Mahdi Kar-
roubi if necessary.

"In the first step, their con-. ~

‘tacts such as meetings and tele-

phone conversations have been
restricted," Ejehi was quoted by
IRNA as saying. "Should cir-

cumstances arise, other measures

will be taken."

Ejehi did not say where they:
were being held.

Mousavi and Karroubi were
placed under house arrest after
urging supporters to attend a
Feb, [+ rally, Clashes between,
protesters and security forces
during the demonstrations killed
two and wounded dozens.

Karroubi's website, saham-
news.org, said Iranian security
forces took the two and their
Wives to an "unknown location"
on Thursday.

Activists and opposition mem-
bers have demanded Mousavi
and Karroubi be released, vow-
ing to stage demonstrations
every Tuesday until they are
freed.

Pro-Gadhafi
forces close in on
rebel-held cities

TRIPOLI, Libya
Associated Press

INTERNATIONAL pres-
sure on Moammar Gadhafi to
end his crackdown on oppo-
nents escalated Monday as his
loyalists closed in on rebel-
held cities closest to the capi-
tal. The U.S. moved naval and
air forces closer to Libya and
said all options were open,
including the use of warplanes
to patrol the North African
nation's skies and protect
Libyans threatened by their
leader.

France said it would start .

flying aid to the opposition-
controlled eastern half of the
country. The European Union
imposed an arms embargo and
other sanctions, following the
lead of the U.S. and the U.N.
The EU was also considering
the creation of a no-fly zone
over Libya. And the U.S. and
Europe were freezing billions
in Libya's foreign assets.

' "Gadhafi has lost the legiti-
macy to govern, and it is time
for him to go without further
violence or delay," U.S. Sec-
retary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton said. "No option
is off the table. That of course
includes a no-fly zone," Clin-
ton added. British Prime Min-
ister David Cameron told
British lawmakers: "We do not

in any way rule out the use of -

military assets" to deal with
Gadhafi's regime.

Gadhafi, who has launched
the most brutal.crackdown of
any Arab regime facing a wave
of popular uprisings, laughed

off a question from ABC ©

News about whether he would
step down as the Obama
administration is demanding.

_"My people love me. They
would die for me," he said.
ABC reported that Gadhafi
invited the U.N. or any other
organization to come on a fact-
finding mission.

The turmoil in the oil-rich
nation roiled markets for

another day. Libya's oil chief.

said production had been cut
by around 50 percent, denting
supplies that go primarily to
Europe.

The uprising that began on
Feb. 15 has posed most serious
challenge to Gadhafi in: his
more than four decades in
power. His bloody crackdown
has left hundreds, and perhaps
thousands, dead. But clashes
appear to have eased consid-
erably over the past few days
after planeloads of foreign

journalists arrived in the capi-.

tal at the government's invita-
tion.

The two sides are

entrenched, and the direction '

the uprising takes next could
depend on which can hold out
longest. Gadhafi is dug in in
Tripoli and nearby cities,

backed by his elite security
forces and militiamen who are
generally better armed than
the‘ military. His opponents,
holding the east and much of
the country's oil infrastructure,

also control pockets in west-
ern Libya near Tripoli. They
are backed by mutinous army
units, but those forces appear
to have limited supplies. of
ammunition and weapons.
Gadhafi opponents have
moved to consolidate their
hold in the east, centered on

Benghazi — Libya’ s second.

largest city, where the upris-

‘ing began. Politicians there on

Sunday set up their first lead-

‘ership council to manage day-

to-day affairs, taking a step

toward forming what could be
an alternative to Gadhafi's
regime.

- The opposition is backed by
numerous units of the military
in the east that joined the
uprising, and they hold sever-
al bases and Benghazi's air-
port. But so far, the units do
not appear to have melded
into a unified fighting force.
Gadhafi long kept the military
weak, fearing a‘ challenge to
his rule, so many units are
plagued by shortages of sup-
plies and ammunition.

On Monday, pro-Gadhafi
forces retook control of the
border crossings with Tunisia

’ in the west after they had fall,

en under opposition control
and bombed an ammunition
depot in the rebel-held east,
residents in the area said. The
Libyan Defense Ministry
denied the bombing.

Regime forces also moved
to tighten their ring around
two opposition-controlled
cities closest to the capital
Tripoli — Zawiya and Misrata
— where the two sides are
locked in standoffs.

An Associated Press
reporter saw a large, pro-Gad-
hafi force massed on the west-
ern edge of Zawiya, some 30
miles (50 kilometers) west of
Tripoli, with about a dozen
armored vehicles along. with
tanks and jeeps mounted with
anti-aircraft guns. An officer
said they were from the elite

Khamis Brigade, named after
one of Gadhafi's sons who
commands it. U.S. diplomats
have said the brigade is the
best equipped force in Libya.

Residents inside the city said
they were anticipating a possi-
ble attack.

"Our people are waiting for
them to come and, God will-
ing, we will defeat them," one
resident who only wanted to
be quoted by his first name,

Alaa, told AP in Cairo by tele-

phone.

In Misrata, ‘Libya’ s third
largest city 125 miles (200 kilo-
meters) east of Tripoli, pro-
Gadhafi troops who control
part of an air base on the city's
outskirts tried to advance
Monday. But they were
repelled by opposition forces,
who included residents armed
with automatic weapons and
defected army units allied with
them, one of the opposition
fighters said.

No casualties were report-
ed and the fighter claimed that
his side had captured eight sol-
diers, including a senior officer.

The opposition controls
most of the air base, and the
fighter said dozens of anti-
Gadhafi gunmen have arrived
from further east in recent
days as reinforcements.

Several residents of the east-
ern city of Ajdabiya said Gad-

_hafi's air force also bombed

an ammunition depot nearby
held by the opposition. One,
17-year-old Abdel-Bari Zwei,
reported intermittent explo-
sions and a fire, and another,
Faraj al-Maghrabi, ‘said the
facility was partially damaged.
The site contains bombs, mis-
siles and ammunition — key
for the undersupplied opposi-
tion military forces. ,

State TV carried a state-

ment by Libya's Defense Min-
istry denying any attempt to
bomb the depot. Ajdabiya lies
about 450 miles (750 kilome-
ters) east of Tripoli along the
Mediterranean coast.

Gadhafi supporters said .

they were in control of the city
of Sabratha, west of .Tripoli,
which has seemed to go back
and forth between the two
camps the past week. Several
residents told The AP that
protesters set fire to a police
station, but then were dis-
persed. Anti-Gadhafi graffiti
— "Down with the enemy of
freedom" and "Libya is free,
Gadhafi must leave" — were
scrawled on some walls, but

residents were painting them

Monday.

In Washington, the Penta-

FORMER Cuban leader Fidel
Castro has claimed the unrest in
the Middle East is evidence that
the policy of the United States and
NATO in the region has “gone
into a crisis”

In the latest edition of his
“Reflections”, meditations on
international affairs released by
Mr Castro since leaving office in
2008, he said the “policy of plun-
dering” imposed by US and
NATO in the Middle East is spi-
ralling out of control.

“It has inevitably unravelled
with the high cost of grains, the
effects of which can be felt more
forcefully in the Arab countries
where, in spite of their huge
resources of oil, the shortage of
water, areas covered by desert and
the generalised poverty of the peo-
ple contrast with the enormous
resources coming from the oil pos-
sessed by the privileged sectors..

“While food prices triple, real

estate fortunes and the treasures
of the aristocratic minority reach
millions of millions of dollars, ” Mr
Castro said.

He said the Arab world, for the
most part Muslim in culture and
beliefs, has seen itself additionally

humiliated by the “imposition of .

blood and fire by a state that was
not capable of fulfilling the basic
obligations that were part of their
origin, from the colonial order
existing up to the end of WW I,
by virtue of which the victorious
powers created the United
Nations organisation and imposed
world trade and economy.
“Thanks to the treason commit-
ted by Anwar El-Sadat at Camp
David, the Palestinian State has

not been able to exist, despite the ©

power, an ally of the United States

of billions of dollars every year as
well as to the very Arab States
that were submitted and being
humiliated by Israel.

“The genie has escaped from
the bottle and NATO doesn’t
know how to control it,” Mr Cas-
tro said.

He said it is obvious that civil
war is brewing in Libya and
agreed with the Nomura Bank of
Japan’s statement that “If Libya
and Algeria suspend oil produc-

tion, prices could reach a maxi-:
mum of more than $220 a barrel

and OPEC’s inactive capacity
would be reduced to 2.1 million
barrels per day, similar to levels
seen during the Gulf War and
when values touched 147 dollars a
barrel in 2008”.

Mr Castro asked: “Who could
pay that price these days? What
would be the consequences in the
midst of the food crisis?”

THE TRIBUNE





his past week-
end, I was privy
to several inde-
pendent con-
versations concerning rising
oil and food costs. Earlier
this year, the Prime Minis-
ter spoke of the threat of
higher oil prices that are
expected by mid-year. The
current social unrest in the
Middle East, needless to say,
is exacerbating the upward
pressures on oil prices.

The common thread in all
the conversations was that
gasoline was $4.75 per gal-
lon, and this coupled with
rising food prices, higher
electricity costs and higher
taxes is a cause of concern
for Bahamians throughout
the country. However, our
official published indices are
surprisingly low; in fact,
many seem to argue that
they are absurdly low.

With inflation non-existent
(according to official

sources), wage growth will .
correspondingly be non-exis-.

tent. Many economists pre-
dict that we are in a period
where real wages will decline
and disposable incomes will
‘ come under greater pressure.
This is not a pleasant situa-
tion, but the reality is that as
most countries are going
through difficult times try-
ing to balance their national
budget, many individuals will
experience similar chal-
lenges.

.In the coming months,
there will be much agitation
for increasing wages, and the
minimum wage in particular.
The real question is whether
we should be focusing on a
minimum wage or whether
it should be on a ‘living
wage’.

Since July 1, 2000, ae min-
imum wage for government
employees in the Bahamas
has been established at $4.45
per hour, or about $175 per
week. If my memory serves
me correctly, I believe that
_ the actual legislated rate is
$4 per hour or some $160
per week..

Over the years, I have

found that very few peisons ~

actually take time to under-
stand the issues involved in
establishing and maintaining
a minimum wage policy. The

arguments in favour of a _

minimum wage seem just as
strong as those against it.

efining a living wage
is the hare minimum

Article
_ I recently came across a
March 13, 2007, article by
Lisa Smith, a writer for
Investopedia.Com, entitled
Exploring the Minimum
Wage, which I kept in my

archives. This article is an |

excellent and extremely well

written, easy to read, discus-

sion that I regard as a ‘must
read’ on the topic and
reprint below: .

“The International Labour
Office in Geneva, Switzer-
land, reports that some 90
per cent of countries around
the world have legislation

supporting’ a minimum wage. ~

The minimum wage in coun-
tries that rank within the
lowest 20 per cent of the pay
scale is less than $2 per day,
or about $57 per month. The
minimum wage in the coun-
tries that represent the high-

- est 20 per cent of the pay

scale is about $40 per day,
or about $1,185 per month.
“Despite paying one of the
highest minimum wages in
the world, the minimum
wage is a perpetual hot pota-
to among politicians in the
United States. The last time
the minimum wage was fed-
erally increased in the Unit-
ed States was 1997. Propo-
nents of an increase argue
that the cost of living has
risen more than 25 per cent
since then. Since the mini-
mum wage is not indexed to
inflation, it does not system-
atically increase in propor-

_tion to changes in costs of

living.

Arguments in Favour

“Those in favour of
increasing the minimum
wage argue that such an
increase lifts people out of
poverty, helps low income
families make ends meet and
narrows the gap between the
rich and poor. That last argu-



ment is underscored by the
exorbitant salaries earned by
chief executives and other
corporate titans, who are
also the same people gener-
ally arguing against an
increase in the minimum
wage. The idea of an
increase also has a strong
populist appeal, particularly
in a nation where discussions
about social class, when they
are held at all, are nearly
always framed in terms of
the rich versus the poor.”

Arguments Against

“On the other side of the
discussion is the argument
that increasing the minimum
wage hurts small businesses,
squeezes profit margins,
leads to inflation, encourages
employers to downsize their
staff and increases the cost
of goods to the end con-
sumer. Interestingly, the
arguments against an
increase rarely focus on the
fact that a good portion of

_ States already mandate a

wage that is higher than the
federal minimum wage.”

By the Numbers
“Economically speaking,

the theory of supply and.

demand suggests that the
imposition of an artificial val-
ue on wages that is higher
than the value that would be



dictated in a free-market sys-
tem creates an inefficient
market and leads to unem-
ployment. The inefficiency
occurs when there are a
greater number of workers
that want the higher paying
jobs than there are employ-
ers willing to pay the higher
wages. Critics disagree.
“What is generally agreed
upon by all parties is that the
number of individuals rely-
ing on the minimum wage in
the United States is less than

5 per cent. However, this sta-

tistic is largely ignored in
favor of citations regarding
the number of people that
live in poverty. Keep in mind
that earning more than the
minimum wage does not
necessarily mean that one is
not living in poverty.
According to estimates from
the CIA World Fact Book,
some 13 per cent of the US
population lives in poverty
— that is 37 million people.
“To put this in perspec-
tive, the federal poverty lev-
el for a working adult was
$9,800 in.2006, according to
the United States Depart-

~~ment of Health and Human

er's pay jumps to $7.25, year-
ly earnings would move to
$15,080 per year for a 40-
hour week. From a mathe-
matical and logical perspec-
tive, increasing the minimum
wage does not lift anyone
out of poverty because the
prior minimum wage already
paid more than the official
poverty rate. ~

“The numbers would seem

to put the minimum wage
argument to rest, but only
because of the misaligned
focus on the phrase ‘mini-
mum wage’. When referring
to that phrase, many people
actually seem to be seeking a
living wage, which is gener-
ally defined as the amount
required to raise a family on
a single wage-earner’s salary.

“Pegging that number to
the poverty rate for a family
of four moves the bar to
$20,000 per year. Looking at
the argument from this per-

spective, neither the current
‘minimum wage nor the pro-

posed increased wage will
provide a living wage. Even
if an increase would move
the salary of every worker

‘in the country to this level, it

would make little difference
in the statistical comparison
of the earnings of the aver-
age worker to those of the
highest-paid chief execu-
tives.”

No Easy Answers.

What is the solution to the
minimum wage/living wage
issue? Statistics can be gath-
ered to support both sides of
the argument. While there
are no easy answers, a good
first step is to frame the
debate in realistic terms.
Referring to the minimum
wage as a wage designed to
support a family confuses the
issue. Families need a living
wage, not a minimum wage.

With that said, generally,

working at a fast food restau-
rant or the local gas station is
not a career. These are jobs

designed to help entry-level .

workers join the workforce,

- not to support the (long

term) financial needs of a
family.

On the core issue of mini-
mum wage itself, political
wrangling is unlikely to
result in a real solution. A
more practical solution is to

join the workforce at the low

end of the wage scale, build
your skills, get an education
and move up the ladder to
a better-paying job just. as
members of the workforce
have done for generations.

Conclusion
The reality is that a high
minimum wage for a service-

driven economy such as the |
Bahamas leads to concerns *
about pricing ourselves out |

of the market. Expensive
labour is one thing...but

expensive and unproductive ,
labour is a recipe for total |

disaster.

Therefore, the ‘automatic |

cost of living adjustment’
argument can only be con-
templated if it is associated
with measurable increases in
productivity. Really, the
need is to strive for service
excellence in a service-dri-
ven economy.

Perhaps a more practical
way to approach this whole
issue is to consider the ‘living

wage’ approach. What isa .

reasonable ‘living wage’ (the
amount required to raise a
family on a single wage-earn-
er’s salary) for the Bahamas?
Maybe this is a statistic we

‘should ‘define for the

Bahamas and try to address.

We can address this by |

examining not just wages but
also including other means
of social/government inter-
vention, and measuring any

shortfall. For example, if we |

determine that the living °

wage is, say, $15,000 per
annum (I have no clue what
this number is or should

be...it can be calculated), we |

ought to Iook at look at

wages and other forms of ;

government assistance being
délivered, such as food pro-
grammes, rent assistance, in
order to get a true picture of

‘the ‘real’ situation.

I would argue that a living
wage could provide more
insight to the challenges that
the ‘man on the street’ faces,

especially i in these nyins ‘s
times. -

Education targeted PXQUIMIMINTSY
for securities dealers GWU aan

By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
mreynolds@tribunemedia.net



CONTINUING educa-
tion requirements for
licensed Bahamas-based
securities dealers were urged
yesterday, the Bahamas
Institute of Chartered
Accountants (BICA) presi-
dent saying this nation was
one of the few that did not
have such stipulations.

Proposed regulations
designed to boost confi-
dence and investment in
Bahamian and international
markets were divulged by
industry professionals at a
seminar held by the
Bahamas Association of
Securities Dealers (BASD).

Around 30 of the 554
Securities Commission reg-
istrants in the Bahamas
gathered at the British Colo-
nial Hilton and heard about
developments in the indus-
try to ensure Bahamian
traders operate at leading
industry standards.

Ongoing education pro-
grammes for licensed bro-
kers and securities invest-
ment.advisers (SIAs) was
called for by BASD board
secretary, and BICA presi-
dent, Reece Chipman, as
well as sales training, estab-
lished codes of conduct and



ZHIVARGO LAING

Mr Chipman said the
Bahamas was the only coun-
try that does not require
some kind of ongoing edu-
cation for licensed securities
dealers, and therefore needs
to put these procedures in
place.

And. as the. economy
shows slow signs of Tecov-

ery, everyone involved in .

securities trading should be
informed and educated
about the product they are
selling, and take responsi-
bility for the sale of those
products.

Offshore

Around 90 per cent of
Bahamian broker/dealers
and SIAs operate offshore
accounts, and therefore
Bahamian traders should be
required to meet interna-
tional standards foreign
clients would expect, Mr
Chipman said.

“We have to be more
competitive,” he said. “We
have to get out there, and
it’s a hustle now because
we’re trickling out of this
‘recessionary period, so we

_need to be prepared for
what’s to come.”

He added: “We should
have a more vibrant securi-

greater supervision of
trades. :

However, as just a frac-
tion of the country’s 554 reg-
istrants were present, Mr
Chipman said there was
much work to do in order
to reach out to all those
operating in the Bahamian
industry.

Bimini Bay obtains

new brand partner

FROM page 1B

yesterday in a release issued by RockResorts, a subsidiary of
Vail Resorts. Eleven of Vail Resorts’ 27 properties in US,
Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, St Lucia and Costa Rica
are RockResorts at present.

In 2005,-Gerardo Capo, chairman of the Capo Group,
which ‘owns the Bimini Bay Resort and Marina, revealed that
the company had signed a management agreement with
Conrad Hotels, a Hilton Hotels luxury brand; to operate and
manage the Bimini Bay Resort.

It is not clear what came.of this agreement and how the
decision to shift the operation/management of the resort to
RockResorts was reached. Rafael Reyes, president of RAV
Bahamas Ltd, a subsidiary of the Capo Group, who speaks
on behalf of Bimini Bay Resort and Marina, could not be
reached up to press time yesterday.

In the release issued by RockResorts, Mr Reyes is quot-
ed as saying that the new agreement with the hotel compa-
ny “represents a new chapter for our homeowners, for our
guests and for our community and the island of Bimini”.

"As we look ahead to the future with plans to improve the

' guest experience and the homeowner experience, it was

critical to us to select the right partner. RockResorts bring
the perfect combination of experience in the luxury resort
industry and environmental leadership,” he said.

Development

The Capo Group has come under fire in previous years
for alleged destruction of what have been deemed envi-
ronmentally sensitive areas in Bimini as it proceeds with the
development of the resort, but it has frequently - and vehe-
mently - denied such claims.

RockResorts’ release on its impending takeover of man-
agerial control at the property stressed the natural envi-
ronment as a focusas it moves ahead in Bimini.

RockResorts has become “known for its progressive e
ronmental programs, as well as its welcoming and Srieadiy
guest service, exquisite spas and superb cuisine”, said fhe
statement.

“We will-bring our core values of environmental stew-
ardship and community involvement that are integral to
our RockResorts Echo corporate responsibility program
to Bimini Bay Resort and Marina," added Julie Klein, direc-
tor of environmental affairs for RockResorts.

The implementation of “industry leading environmental .

initiatives” at Bimini Bay Resort and Marina are promised,
such as a ‘Water on the Rocks’ program that eliminates
nearly all the plastic water bottle usage by guests, a volun-
tary guest donation program for local environmental pro-
jects, a volunteer vacation program called ‘Give and Get-
away’, a progressive sustainable cuisine programme, a green
guest room programme, and the soon-to-be launched ‘Go
Green, Get Green’ meeting and event program.

In addition to the existing hotel, the Bimini Bay Resort
and Marina presently features three restaurants, a shop-
ping village, children's activity centre, two outdoor pools and
tennis courts.

Alongside the development of the boutique hotel, to
open in 2014, further plans will see an on-site casino devel-
oped.

AUDIT ISSUES: From L to R: Kendrick Christie, Grant Thornton partner; Paul Andy Gomez, Grant Thorn-
ton managing partner; Veta Brown, PHA chairman; and Herbert Brown, PHA managing director

Grant Thornton (Bahamas) partners have
paid a courtesy call on Public Hospital
Authority (PHA) chairman, Veta Brown,
and managing director, Herbert Brown, at
the latter’s corporate offices in Centreville.

Grant Thornton serves as the indepen-
dent auditors of PHA, and managing part-
ner, Paul Andy Gomez, and partner-in-
charge of assurance and fraud investigations,
Kendrick K. Christie, took the opportunity
to discuss relevant audit issues, including

internal controls and corporate governance.

Management

The Public Hospital Authority is respon-
sible for the management of the three gov-
ernment-owned hospitals, namely the
Princess Margaret Hospital and the Sandi-
lands Rehabilitation Centre in Nassau, and
the Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport.

In addition to its mandate for public hos-
pitals, the PHA is also responsible for the
management and development of other

: areas of the public sector health services

system, such as the National Emergency
Medical Services (NEMS), the Bahamas
National Drug Agency (BNDA) and the
Materials Management Directorate (MMD).
The community health services in Grand
Bahama, together with the Rand Memorial
Hospital, form a local health system, which
is called the Grand Bahama Health System.

Mr Gomez said the PHA performs a vital
role in the physical and mental development
of the Bahamas, overseeing the provision
of medical services to patients of every eco-
nomic and social status.

He added that the Grant Thornton part-
ners were pleased that the significant invest-
ment in audit risk assessment tools and tech-
nology over the last five years places it in a
unique position to audit entities such as
PHA that have complex operations.

Grant Thornton (Bahamas) is a part of
Grant Thornton International (GTI), and
is among the top seven international
accounting and consulting organisations in
the world, with 585 offices in 110 countries,
2,600 partcts; and 30,000 employees world-
wide.

advertising carried by ZNS.”

While backing the notion that “local broadcasting should be }

streamlined to offer more local content covering all aspects of
Bahamian life and culture”, Cable Bahamas said that desig-
nating ZNS as a PSB would not be the answer.

“Historically, PSB structures were designed to inform, edu-
cate and entertain. Today, however, the cold truth is that these
objectives have become challenging to achieve in markets that
are advanced in technological entertainment,” the BISX-listed
company warned. Competition is no longer local but global,
with insurmountable channels accessible through broadband
Internet and other great technological advancements such that
audience appeal (which translates into funding) for PSB mod-
els has now dwindled in many countries and, in particular, the
Caribbean region.

“The late 1990s saw the privatization of four public service
models in the Caribbean: Jamaica, Dominica, St Kitts & Nevis

and Trinidad & Tobago, and the sizeable downsizing of the :

Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation in Barbados.”

As a result, Cable Bahamas concluded: “The companies are
concerned that in a small island state such as this, it may not be
feasible to create a model where there is fiftle or no govern-
mental involvement in the running and ee of the
broadcasting network.

“The companies envisage a. model which" partners with the
Government of the Bahamas, and with the people of the
Bahamas, with a mandate to meet the cultural, educational,
informational and economic needs of the people based on
interest and not profit.

“Ideally, a quasi-PSB model, with government appropriation

initially being at its maximum level and a 10-year plan to grad- :

ually reduce these levels to a minimum and, ultimately, replac- }

ment might need to adjust its debt-to-

tives with these: two indicators.

He also urged the Government to
conduct an exercise to determine
whether the tax increases in the 2010-
2011 Budget had yielded the desired
result, in terms of greater tax revenues
for the Public Treasury.

Identifying the automobile industry
as one such sector ripe for this study,
Mr Smith said it would test elasticities,
“and if you’re not getting an increase as
intended, you may have to revisit that”.

In the short-term, the former finance

minister said an improvement in the
Government’s finances was dependent
on the private sector and an “uptick” in
economic activity.

“Until that happens, it will be a

struggle keeping things together,” Mr
Smith said. Asked about the signifi-
cance of the current deficit and debt-to-
GDP ratios, he added: “They have sig-
nificance in terms of uncertainty like
we’re going through now.

“Tf there is an urgent need to go to
the market for money - we’re in a hur-
ricane zone, and God forbid there is an
unexpected event - but we’d need some
headroom to make a soft landing for
the economy. We’re using up that
headroom to deal with unexpected
events rapidly, and I suspect the Gov-
ernment is aware of that.”

Unveiling his Mid-Year Budget
statement in the House of Assembly,
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham
blamed "weaker than expected eco-
nomic performance in the first half and

continuing administrative weakness-

es" for the Government's failure to hit ©

its $668.4 million recurrent revenue
target for the July 1-December 31,
2010, period. The total revenue figure,
instead, came in at $584.1 million.

"The principal shortfalls in forecast- .

ed revenue occurred in respect of
import duties and export duties, at
$30.5 million, and Stamp Tax at $43, 1
million," Mr Ingraham said. "The latter
largely reflected Stamp Tax weakness
in respect of real property transactions
over $250,000."

The Government's salvation this fis-.

cal year, though, will be the one-off
revenue boosts it receives from taxes
collected on major commercial trans-
actions. Apart from the $217 million

Scotiabank-led consortium to Baha Mar was rarely out of the
news last year, as it represented an obstacle to the Chinese
financing of the $2.6 billion resort project proceeding until
the two parties were able to thrash out a settlement in
negotiations in New York.

The deal resulted in a ‘debt-for-equity’ swap, with Sco-
tiabank (Bahamas) taking an equity stake in the Baha Mar
project in return for accepting a repayment that was less than
the full amount owed.

The bank will now be hoping that the work done by Baha
Mar and China State Construction will result in the creation
of a profitable world-class destination resort facility that

sees Scotiabank earn a return on its equity, and gets its.
money back. At the moment, given that Baha Mar has only

just started construction, the value of that equity stake is
effectively zero, hence the writedown.

Robert Sands, Baha Mar's vice-president of external and
government affairs, last year said Baha Mar was now 88 per
cent owned by the Izmirlian family, led by Sarkis Izmirilan,
with Scotiabank having taken a 12 per cent minority inter-
est as a result of negotiations with Baha Mar over the out-
standing $200 million debt it owed. The China State Con-
struction and Engineering Corporation has invested $150
million in "non-convertible" preference shares in the project.

Elsewhere, Scotiabank (Bahamas) operating income
dropped by 6.5 per cent in 2010 to $142.683 million, com-
pared to $152.676 million the previous year. This was large-
ly due to a more than $19 million fallin interest income to
$126.454 million, compared to $145. 644 million, a drop of
13.2 per cent.

Prices and sales of previ-
ously occupied homes have
painted a grim picture of that
portion of the housing mar-
ket, which — historically
accounts for roughly 85 per-
cent of home sales.

Housing prices in all but
one of the 20 cities tracked
by the Standard &
Poor's/Case Shiller index fell
in December from Novyem- -
ber. Eleven of the markets —
stretching from Seattle to
Miami — hit their lowest
point since the housing bub-
ble burst in 2006 and 2007.

Sales of previously occu-
pied homes rose slightly last
month. But the seasonally
adjusted annual pace of 5.36
million is still far below the 6
million homes a year needed
to maintain a healthy market.

LONDON — Stabilizing oil prices fol-
lowing reports that Libyan rebels are

‘willing to restart crude exports helped

ease market concerns that the global
recovery would be brought to a standstill
by sky-high energy costs.

Crude oil traded at about $98 a barrel
on the New York Mercantile Exchange,
while the Brent rate in London fetched
around $112 a barrel.

At the height of the markets' concerns
over Libya last week, New York crude
had risen over $102 a barrel and Brent °
had advanced towards $120.

METALS PRICES INCREASE ON
POSITIVE SIGNS FOR ECONOMY

NEW YORK



Prices rose Monday for metals used in manufacturing as
new reports suggested the U.S. economy is improving. Sil-
ver, palladium, platinum and copper all settled higher.

The gains are based ona Commerce Department report ,
that says consumer incomes rose last month by the largest-
amount in nearly two years, thanks partly to a tax cut.. How-
ever, Americans still are being careful about their spending.

Also, a measure of business strength in the Chicago area
hit the highest level since July 1988. The Chicago Business
Barometer showed more new orders coming in, improving
employment and order backlogs.

The developments left many traders more confident about
economic growth despite ongoing clashes in the oil-rich
regions of Middle East and North Africa. "Many have tak-
en the view that ... higher oil prices will likely lead to tem-
pered economic recovery instead of a total derailment of
economic recovery," CPM Group analyst oor Sanchez
said.

ufacturing goods including eno housing materials
and automobiles. —

And no one ever lost votes by criticizing Washington.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney blames Obama for

"frightening new levels of federal spending and deficits."

"I've never seen an enterprise in more desperate need of a
turnaround than the U.S. government," Romney said. "A vote:
on raising the debt ceiling has to be accompanied by a major :

effort to restructure and reduce the size of government." '

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, a White House budget director :
for President George W. Bush, said Republicans should extract :
"eight pounds of flesh in the form of major spending cuts" as :
part of any deal to raise the $14. 3 trillion ceiling on the gov- :

ernment's debt.

Barbour points to GOP governors' records’ balancing their
states' books, noting that he cut Mississippi's spending by 9.4 :

percent last year.

_. But Barbour also supports raising the debt ceiling. "Ameri-
ca would suffer enormous consequences," he said in a recent :
interview with Fox News. "The dollar is the currency of the :

world; it won't be if we default."

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is poised to }
begin a White House bid in the coming weeks, encouraged law- :
makers to raise the debt limit — but not without first extract- i
ing the spending cuts they promised during the midterm elec- :
tions. "Another shutdown of the federal government is not :
an ideal result, but for House Republicans, breaking their :
word would be far worse," he wrote over the weekend in an ;

opinion piece for The Washington Post.

Gingrich is well aware of a similar faceoff with a Democra-
tic White House that resulted in the government shutdowns in }
1995. At the time, President Bill Clinton blamed the shutdown }

on Republicans and marched toward re-election a year later.

automakers have been counting on
emerging economies, especially China,
for major growth. But news that the
once-galloping economy is slowing down,
even to an enviable 7 percent, could

-cause companies like Volkswagen and

BMW some worry.

Still, automakers are showing opti-
mism coming into Geneva, evident in
the rollouts planned. After seeing par-

ticipants scale back in recent years, orga-

nizers said they had requests for more
show space than they could provide, and
that 70 brands will be represented from
31 countries.

Prestigious _

Gerieva's motor show, which focuses
primarily on European companies, is
considered one of the more prestigious

‘ auto events of the year.

And because it is based in industry-
neutral Switzerland, which does not pro-
duce cars on any industrial scale, it cre-
ates an even playing field for German,
French and Italian companies alike, not
to mention a rare venue for Asian
automakers like Tata to show cars out-
side of their markets.

Automakers that held back launch

Traders expect the European Central Bank and Bank of

THE STRONG KOMEN LADIES WALK IN PARADISE

!

By ALESHA CADET
Tribune Features Reporter

VERWHELMED by the tremendous

international support for the Walk in
Paradise, breast cancer survivor Helen Rolle told
Tribune Woman: "It was just awesome, every-
body was in high spirits and we are just grateful
for the support."

"It was beyond expectations, the turn out was
great, the support was great. There were sisters
and the other guests from abroad, we had the sur-
vivors and their families who came on board and
that was awesome."

Ms Rolle says there was over 200 or more
Breast Cancer Survivors of the Komen Florida
Affiliate that came to town last Saturday for the
annual Walk in Paradise.

The Komen ladies arrived on the Majesty of
the Seas cruise ship and they were all escorted by
bus to Paradise Island, for a reunion with the
Sister Sister women of Nassau. This emotional
reunion was followed by the Walk in Paradise
ceremony.

This marvelous venture into Health Tourism
began over four years ago when one of the visit-
ing Komen ladies asked the Nassau organisers of
the event how could they actually walk in Par-
adise. It wasn’t long before Sun International’s
Ed Fields and Katie Longley were brought into
the picture and they paved the way for the event.

“We say thanks to Atlantis for doing this,”
says Andrea Sweeting, President of Sister Sis-
ter, the Breast Cancer support group.





WALKING IN PARADISE:

Although the Walk in Paradise was held on
Paradise Island, unlike the recent Komen Race
for the Cure, it was private and not open to the
public, as only a limited number of complimen-
tary T-shirts were provided for the Komen and
Sister Sister Cancer Survivors by Scott Farrington
of Sun Tee. Mrs Sweeting says it is really all

about supporting and encouraging each other.
“This support is really crucial. Regardless of

what’s happening in your life, you have to know .

that there’s someone there to hold your hand as
you go through it. From the standpoint of the
group, we know the women who do better are
always the ones who have support.”

A number of local school choirs participated at
the event to provide. entertainment, namely, St
Andrews, Kingsway Academy, Queen’s College
and a recital from Oakwood Academy. The Roy-
al Bahamas Police Force Marching band and
pop band performed as well.

Ms Rolle said: "They did an awesome job and
the Royal Bahamas Police Force band was the
grand finale. The turn out was great and I felt
proud and it made me feel like we are not alone
in this.fight, we do have persons who do care

. and there were survivors who came out who

were not afraid to say to the public, I am a sur-
vivor as well."

"Many of our women are still hiding and they
are still closed with it, but we thank God for
those bold soldiers who came, because they were
able to walk, that was their testimony what God
did for them, We want to thank the public for
their support," she said.

While the “Walk in Paradise” is Sister Sister’s
way of helping women through their ordeal, what
they have actually created, with Atlantis’ help is
a win-win situation for all as the event which
creates awareness for the Komen Women, the
Sister Sister Breast Cancer Support Group and
Sun International’s Atlantis Resort.

Ms Andrea Sweeting added: “We want persons
to know that there is help and that there is still life
and hope after cancer. We want you to know
that you don’t have to walk this road alone. For
me, when I was diagnosed | didn’t know about
Sister Sister. But I believe that if you know what
your choices are, I think you’ll make better deci-
sions.” , ,

The deaf and blind dog

By DR BASIL SANDS

UITE (frequently through-

out my years practicing vet-
erinary medicine J have been asked
whether dogs become deaf and go
blind.

Some dogs start to lose their hearing
as they get older when nerve cells and
other cells in the inner ear break down.

Chronic ear infections, especially if
the eardrum is ruptured, also can lead
to deafness.

Antibiotics in the Gentamycin fam-

ily can cause deafness, particularly if. .
_ reversible, but fortunately, dogs can

they are used in high doses or in dogs
that have kidney disease. (The kid-
neys help break down Gentamycin).



If you suspect deafness let your vet
check your dog for signs of an ear
infection.

Hearing loss caused by infection will
often improve with treatment, and that
caused by Gentamycin may resolve
after the drug is discontinued.

Other forms of deafness are not

function very well with hearing loss.
To ensure their safety, keep your

dog away from cars, even in your own
driveway. They may not be able to
hear well enough to move away from a
car backing out of the garage.

And to ensure your own safety, be
careful not to sneak. up on your dog
especially when it is dozing — it might
startle the dog enough to bite.

Dogs can also be born deaf.

This disorder is:seen most often in
Dalmatians, and dogs whose coats are
mostly white such as the old England,
sheepdogs and bull terriers.

Most dog breeders routinely test
puppies of these breeds for deafness
before selling them.

A deaf puppy may be difficult to
train and may react aggressively when
startled.

Dogs can gradually lose their vision

from cataracts, glaucoma or few other
causes. Young purebred dogs can
develop a disease called progressive
retinal atrophy (PRA), whereby the
light sensitive rods and cones in the
retina of both eyes gradually break
down and stop working.

The dog’s vision deteriorates over
months to years until it becomes blind.
Night blindness is often the earliest
sign.

PRA is an inherited disease, carried
on a recessive gene.

It is rare in mixed breeds (potcakes),

‘because they are far less likely to

receive this gene from both parents.

There is no treatment for PRA,
however, even totally blind dogs can
adapt beautifully to their environments
and continue to live happy lives.

Sometimes, blindness caused by sud-
den breakdown of the retina can be
terrifying to dogs and their owners.

Healthy dogs can become blind sud-
denly by a sudden breakdown of the
retina.

The cause of sudden retinal degen-
eration is unknown.

Optic nerve inflammations may be
caused by severe eye injury (such as
having the eyeball pop out) by cancer
or other unknown factors.

Fortunately, blindness is not painful.

And because dogs are blessedly free
of self-pity and self-consciousness, and
because they have a excellent sense
of smell and touch and are attuned to
changes in air current and pressures,
most of them will adjust very well to
blindness.

Ten benefits of chiropractic adjustments

1. Decreases pain
Endorphins released during the adjustment
block pain causing a near instant relief

2. Reduces inflammation

The adjustment increases the blood supply
to the area thereby reducing the inflamma-
tion.

3. Improves the nutritional supply

The adjustment increases the blood supply
‘to the area providing fresh nutritional supply
to promote healing, as well as removing waste.

4. Shortens the recovery time

The adjustment heals from the inside out
therefore quickening the time for your body to
heal.,

5. Decreases muscle tension
Including the soft tissue work that most chi-



ropractors practice, the adjustment releases
the muscle spasm because in most cases the

‘reason for the spasm is that the. dysfunction of

the joint is pulling the muscle. Therefore when
the joint is adjusted the muscle tension is
decreased.

6. Reduces pressure on nerves to allow them
to function optimally

When a joint is stuck (subluxated) it can
create pressure on the nerve, or the inflam-
mation from the dysfunctional joint can create
pressure on the nerve, which disrupts your

nervous system. The adjustment can cause a
relief of this pressure through movement of the
joint’to the correct position.

.7. Helps maintain range of motion and flex-
ibility

Adjustments can help maintain your optimal
full range of motion in your joints which can
increase flexibility. Keeping the ability of your
joints to have full range of motion and flexi-

bility will help prevent muscle strain and joint

dysfunction.

8. Increases sports performance

A report in the Journal of Chiropractic
Research and Clinical Investigation found sig-
nificant increases in athletic performance after
only three months of chiropractic care, and
the US Olympic Committee assigns a chiro-
practor to its staffs for the Pan-American and
Olympic Games.

9. Increases overall health

When there is nerve interference from the
subluxation this results in the breakdown of
normal tissue cells. Abnormal tissue cells can
eventually turn into dis-ease. The adjustment
removes the interference allowing for the
replacement of abnormal cells to normal cells.

10. Helps with bad posture
- The adjustment will allow for proper posi-
tioning of the bones which in turn will allow
the abnormal muscular tension that can affect
posture to return to normal. Also your chiro-
practor can give you exercises to benefit your
posture.

certified fitness trainer

AS we become more and more technologically dependent on ;

computers, cell phones, television, video games and aa, we find
ourselves spending less and'less time outside.

No doubt this shift.is having an adverse effect on our health gen-
-erally as we have become a largely (pun intended) sedentary soci-
- ety not utilising our beautiful outdoor surroundings to maintain an
active and healthy lifestyle.

Being blessed with generally great weather year round and an
abundance of “green” spaces, we should be some of the world’s
most:fit and physically active people. However, statistics recently
revealed by the Ministry of Health, showing that over 70 per cent
of Bahamians are either overweight or obese, confirms otherwise.
Exercising outdoors relieves the boredom of a stale exercise
regime and provides additional training stimulus, both physical and
mental. Compare running outdoors to running on a treadmill; dif-
ferent surfaces, hills and wind resistance all increase the difficulty

of your workout and instead of looking at a TV screen or blank —

wall, you can immerse yourself in the scenery.

In | addition, the sun is a great mood booster, and the vitamin D
it provides makes your bones stronger, strengthens your immune
system and helps protect your body against cancer.

Although vitamin D can be obtained from other sources, the sun

is still the best source for the human body. Plus, no air-condi- .

tioned environment can compare to the fresh air outdoors.

Recent research has confirmed that “just five minutes exercising
in a green space such as a park can boost mental health”.

The study, recently published in the Environmental Science
and Technology Journal in the UK, summarises that “green exer-
cise has numerous health benefits because connecting with nature
reduces stress levels and offers a healing, relaxing environment.”

And, perhaps the best part is you don’t need any fancy equip-
ment to get started. Brisk walking or jogging are great ways to burn
off calories and if you want to take things to the next level you
could head for the beach. |

The resistance provided by the sand will intensify your workout.
If you’re a beginner, start with compacted rather than soft sand.
You will still get the challenge of beach running but it won’t be
quite as tough.

You can easily put together an outdoor circuit without equip-
ment. Runs, shadow boxing, jumping jacks and other activities
provide a cardio element while body weight exercises such as
push-ups and squats provide the resistance necessary for muscle
toning. Be creative and use your surroundings. Park benches will
provide you with a bench for triceps dips while curbs or steps are
ideal for step ups. If your park has a playground that’s even better.
Bars and poles provide a great foundation for a resistance workout.
For those of us who get bored walking on a treadmill or elliptical
trainer, you need to move outdoors for some natural stimulation
and give your training a green boost. Here is a total body circuit
with some great, simple exercises you can do outdoors:

Total body outdoor circuit
This circuit combines cardio and resistance for a total body

workout. ;

Beginners should spend 30 seconds on each exer¢ise and rest for
45 to 60 seconds.

Intermediate exercisers should aim for one minute on each
exercise and a rest period of 30 seconds.

If you’re an experienced exerciser, challenge yourself by increas-
ing the amount of time spent on each exercise and reducing the rest
period.

Try to repeat the circuit at least twice or more depending on your
abilities and finish with a cool down, for example gentle jogging on
the spot followed by stretching.

Warm up .

Warm up with five minutes gentle cardio like walking, light
running, marching in place. This will increase your heart rate and
warm up your muscles.

Squats

The squat is one of the best exercises for toning the legs and
burning off calories. Perform slowly and concentrate on good
form for maximum benefits.

Shadow boxing
Use jabs, hooks and uppercuts to work the upper body and
waist and get your heart pumping.

Pull-ups

Target your back by performing pull-ups on a climbing frame or
low hanging tree branch. Beginners should keep their feet on the
grounds

Eat more fibre and you just may live longer.
That's the message from the largest study of its kind to

find a link between high-fibre diets and lower risks of death
: not only from: heart disease, but from infectious.and respira-
i. tory. illnesses as well.

The government study also ties fibte with a lower risk of

: cancer deaths in men, but not women, possibly because men

; Strongest for diets high in fibre from grains.

Most Americans aren't getting enough roughage in their

: diets. The average American eats only about 15 grammes of
: fibre each day, much less than the current daily recommen-

: dation of 25 grammes for women and 38 grammes for men,

: or 14 grammes per 1,000‘calories. For example, a slice of

: whole wheat bread contains two to four grammes of fibre.

In the new study, the, people who met the guidelines were

less likely to die during a nine-year follow-up period.

The men and women who ate the highest amount of fibre

were 22 per cent less likely to die from any cause compared
: to those who ate the lowest amount, said lead author Dr
: Yikyung Park of the National Cancer Institute.

The study, appearing in last week’s Archives of Internal

Medicine, included more than 388,000 adults, ages 50 to 71,
: who participated in a diet and health study conducted by the
: National Institutes of Health and AARP.

They filled out a questionnaire in 1995 or 1996 about their

eating habits. It asked them to estimate how often they ate
; 124 food items.

After nine years, more than 31,000 of the participants had

died. National records were used to find out who died and
: the cause of death.

The researchers took into account other risk factors

: including weight, education level, smoking and health status
- £ and still saw lower risks of death in people who ate more

To reach 38 grammes, a man could eat all that — plus

Alesha: I did not like the dress, it :

was too stale, but she can get a pass in
my book because she’s pregnant and
she still looks simply, beautiful.

Jeffarah: Considering that Natalie is
carrying that huge bump in the front of
her, I think her stylist did.an okay of
job of finding a dress that accentuated
her figure.

However, she looks a little bland ©

with the side-part sweep. Maybe she
should ask Nicki Minaj to borrow a
wig, to spice things up!

Berry some stiff competition in this
orange number, that is all.

Jeffarah: Love the dress, and the
deep plunge from the neck to cleav-
age. Though the colour is little bit
loud, I think she looks beautiful.

did you burrow that dress from your
grandmother?

Alesha: Call me “brand new” or
“new school” but I don’t see the sense
in wearing a dress such as this one. It

’ did not do anything for her at all.

Jeffarah: I get that the vintage look
you were going for, but it doesn’t work
for me. I know Joan Rivers had a
whole lot of fun when your photo
flashed on the screen.

Alesha: Ms Kidman won me over
with those red pumps she decided to
wear with that dress, loved the risk
she took.

Jeffarah: Hey Nicole, I was looking
for a curtain for my living room,
maybe you can help me out? In other
words, this dress just doesn’t do it for
me.

their first presti-

gious Hugh

title to the Government Sec-

ondary Schools Sports Asso-

ciation’s title they won last
week. ;

The Pacers, coached by

Nigel Ingraham, last night

pulled off an 82-69 over the.

visiting Sunland Baptist

Stingers in the New Provi-

dence versus Grand Bahama
showdown at the end of the
week-long double elimination
tournament for senior boys.
Kenneth Pratt, who put an
explanation mark on the Pac-
ers’ triumph with.a one-hand-
ed fast break slam dunk for a
78-67 lead, was named the
most valuable player after he
scored a game high 35 points.
“Tt’s all God. We put him
first all year and he gave us
the victory,” Ingraham
stressed amidst the team’s cel-
ebrations. “I always believed
that these boys could come
back. I believed in them and
they came through.”
' Sunland Baptist, coached
by Bonnie Basden, was one
of the two teams from Grand
Bahama who came to town,
although there was a boycott
by the majority of the teams,
including the Tabernacle Fal-
cons and the Jack Hayward
Wildcats.

“We have to be disap-
pointed. They put the pres-
sure on us, we turned over the
ball and all of our men were
in foul trouble, so we couldn’t
do the job we wanted to do,”
Basden said.

“Down the stretch, RM
Bailey got the edge. I’m not
going to complain about the

_ Officiating. We just have to

learn to overcome these
things. That’s life. We have
to live with it.”

The other team that partic-
ipated was the Eight Mile .
Rock Blue Jays, coached by
Quinton ‘Three Ounce’ Hall.

Third quarter

RM Bailey started 0-9 from
the free throw line in the first
two minutes as Sunland
opened a 12-point lead, 54-42
on a lay-up from Devaughn

- Gibson.

RM Bailey responded with
a 12-4 spurt to trim the deficit
to 58-54 to end the final break
on a lay-up from Kenneth
Pratt.

Second quarter

RM Bailey came back for a
17-17 tie as Pratt hit two crit-
ical free throws and both
teams traded baskets until
Sunland went up 31-27. Sun-
land went on to post a 38-36
margin at the half.

First quarter

RM Bailey had an early
three-point lead, 8-5, but Sun-
land went on a 6-0 run and
they took an 11-8 lead. They
eventually increased it to sev-
en, 17-10, on a fast break
dunk from Gibson. At the
end of the period, they led 17-
12.

‘Hurricanes on course

to win CCAA title with

By BRENT STUBBS
Senior Sports Reporter
bstubbs@tribunemedia.net

he Holland College Hur-
ricanes are on a course

to win the Canadian Col-

legiate Athletic Association
men’s basketball title this week-
end and coach George Morrison
has a deadly 1-2 punch in sopho-
more Donathon ‘Donnie’ Moss
and transfer Leo Morris to thank
for it.

“Donnie is an excellent bas-
ketball player and an excellent
athlete,” Morris stated. “He has
had an unusual impact on our
programme. Although Leo just
joined us over the Christmas hol-
iday, he has been.just as impres-
sive.”

_ Moss, the 20-year-old graduate
of Jordan Prince Williams Fal-
cons, averaged 19.47 points and
8.2 rebounds per game. His best
performance was 33 points and
16 rebounds in a loss on January
14 and 31 points and 14 rebounds
inva win two weeks ago.

“T just had to adapt to what
was going on here,” said Moss
about making the transition from
playing high school ball to col-
lege in Canada. They were look-

. ing for me for my leadership’
role.”

Coming from a system where
he was able to bang around his

-opponents in the Falcons’ sys-
tem, Moss said he realized that -

' he had to slow his game down

and develop his game a lot more

on the inside.
At 6-feet, 4-inches and 185

pounds, Moss plays basically as a»

small or power forward, but he.

finds himself having to step up

and play the middle as a center

sometimes depending on who

_ he’s guarding.

A tourism and travel manage-
ment major, Moss has been
named both Holland College and
CCAA Conference Athlete of
the Week on three different
occasions.

_ ‘Morris, on the other hand, is 6-
0 and 180. He plays either the
shooting guard and or the small
or power forward spots, also
depending on his defensive
assignment.

_ “Tt’s going all right. It’s a
. change of scenery from the

LEO MORRIS.

States (US), but so far so good,”
Morris said. “At the beginning
when I came here, I thought I

‘was going to be the only Bahami-

an.
“But when I found out that
Donnie was here, it made things
a lot easier for me. We have a —
good chemistry going. We played
a lot this summer in the Nelson ,
Cooper Peace on the Street
Tournament, in Delaporte and C
I Gibson. So it was quite interest-
ing when we joined up here.” -

.... Morris, a graduate.of St John’s
College who transferred from |

Eastern Wyoming Junior Col-
lege, is the Hurricanes’ second
leading scorer and has the best
field goal percentage in the con-
ference.

“In the beginning, the coach
didn’t play me much because he
already had his players and I
pretty much had to fight and
claw my way-into the starting

line-up,” Morris said.

“About the third game in, he
started me and I had a good

. showing, averaging a steady 15-

16 points per game. I’m leading
the country in field goal percent-
age and leading the conference



DONATHON MOSS

in steals and field goal percent-
age.”

The hotel restaurant manage-
ment major is also on course to
being the first Holland College
player to. win the Rookie of the
Year honours as well. In their |
last four games that Moss missed
because of.an injury, Morris has
led the attack, averaging 23
points per game as they went 3-1.

“So far it’s looking good. It
feels good for me and him to be
1-2.0n the team,” -he said. “I.can «:

definitely say that people have to
prepare to play against the two”:

~of us. It’s really hard‘forthem to” .“

just try to key in on one of us
because we have been playing so
well together.”
This year, the Hurricanes have
posted a league’s second best of

18-3 going into the playoffs. Last .—...

year, they were 16-5. In all, Moss
has helped the Hurricanes to an,,
impressive 34-8 record.

Morris made his impact after
joining the team over the Christ-
mas. holiday. “We’re looking for
them to continue their stellar

' play and contribution to the

team,” said Morris.

and scoring and we are kind of
forced to play him out of posi-
tion, guarding the biggest guy or
the biggest best guy on the oppo-
site team.”

Playing what he describes as
an “emotional type of game,”
Morrison said Morris “brings
some savvy to the court as an
older player and he’s a strong
guard/small forward, who loves
to penetrate.”

Having had a bye in the first

| -- round,-the Hurricanes have

advanced directly to the semifi-
nal. Holland College is hoping
for a rematch against top seed
Mount Saint Vincent Mystics,
whom they handed their only
defeat in their regular season
finale last week.

“We’re optimistic. As long as
we play well, we certainly have

an opportunity to get to the final ;

and then.we will see what hap-

pens then,” Morrison said.
That final is set for Sunday.
Moss is currently nursing an

injury to his right leg but hopes

‘ that he will be able to suit up to

play this weekend. If he’s avail-
able, he’s confident that they can
win. - :

But in the event that he’s not
at 100 per cent, he feels it could
pose.a problem should they get
into the championship game.
However, he feels that if he’s not
there, Morris will have to carry
the load.

“Tf we win it, we feel confident
that we can win it,” Morris said.

As a word of advice to those |
players here at home; who have
an interest in playing college
ball, whether in the: US or Cana-
da, Moss said “you’re going to an

. unfamiliar place, so you have to
be’mentally and physically ready:

“You have to be in shape and
be strong because the main prob-
lem is that we don’t lift weights .
at home. But when we come
here, it’s a big problem because
the guys are usually a lot
stronger.”

Note: Holland College also

' features another Bahamian,

Dimetrius Ferguson, who plays

on the Hurricanes’ football team.
He was awarded the Hilton Tro-
phy for the most valuable player

"of the year as they won the

championship title.

PAULDE SOUZA - ‘

Bahamian
sailors in
Florida regatta

ByLoriLowe
FOUR young Bahamian Opti-

‘mist Dingy sailors attended this

year’s International Valentine’s
Regatta at St Petersburg Sailing
Center in Florida earlier this
month. The event hosted over
220 Optimist sailors.

Top American sailors and
some of the top finishers at the
2010 Optimist Worlds attended.
. Battling extremely cold sailing

_ conditions and the largest Opti-

mist fleets they had ever com-
peted against, all of our sailors
represented the Bahamas well
and should be congratulated on
their achievements.

Silver Fleet competitor Paul de
Souza, 11, had the best Bahamian
result, finishing 8th overall in the
62 boat Silver Fleet and 4th in
his age category. Paul was our
youngest sailor and sails out of .
the Nassau Yacht Club.

Of the four sailors who attend-
ed the regatta, three were in the
Gold Fleet — Tyler Cartwright,
12, of Deadman’s Cay, Long
Island, 14-year-old Daniel Gib-
son and Pedro Rahming, 14,. of
H O Nash Junior High School in
Nassau.

Gold Fleet had a total of 160
competitors who were split into

.four groups, with only two sailing

together at a time.

Mixed in among the Gold Fleet’
were some of the top American
Optimist sailors as well as some
of the top finishers, at the 2010
Optimist Worlds, making this the _
most competitive fleet‘our sailors
have ever raced against.

Daniel Gibson, the current
Bahamian Optimist National
Champion, finished 94th overall
and 46th in his age group.
Daniel’s best race was a 25th.

Pedro Rahming had two races
and he placed in the 30s. Overall,
he finished 120th and 56th in his
age group. Tyler Cartwright fin-
ished 142nd overall and 64th.in
his age group.

Tyler had a 46th place finish
and would have-had a finish in
the 30s in the last race had the
second heat not been abandoned
by the race committee due to
dying wind conditions.

Best plan for free agent questions? Don’t answer

Bibby gives

up $6.2m in

buyout with
Wizards

WASHINGTON (AP) —
Mike Bibby has reached a
buyout agreement with the
Washington Wizards, freeing
him from the last-place team
after just two games.

Bibby agreed to give up his
entire $6. 2 million. salary for
next season and was waived
on Monday. The move came
on the eve of the deadline for

players to be released in order’

to eligible for a playoff ros-
ter if they sign with another
team.

Bibby was acquired last
week in a five-player trade

‘that sent Kirk Hinrich to the
Atlanta Hawks.

He played in 29 minutes in
his two games with the Wiz-
ards, scoring two points and
making eight assists.

Spurs’ Parker
out 2-4 weeks
with calf
injury
SAN ANTONIO (AP) —
Spurs point guard Tony Park-
er is expected to miss two to
four weeks after ‘straining his

left calf muscle in a win over
Memphis.

_ The Spurs announced Mor- .

day that their star point guard
won't accompany them to
Memphis and Cleveland this
week. It will also leave the
-NBA-best Spurs without
Parker for their first game
against LeBron James and the
Miami Heat on Friday.

Parker left Sunday's game

in the second quarter when

“he collided with Grizzlies
guard Mike Conley. He did
not return.

Health has been a major
factor behind San Antonio's
surprise return to their cham-
pionship form. Tim Duncan,
Manu Ginobili and Parker
have started all but one game.

By BRIAN MAHONEY
AP Basketball Writer

THAT Big Three in Mia-
mi is already becoming old
news, giving way to another
trio that can reshape the
league.

Speculation shifts auc
in the NBA. LeBron James,
Dwyane Wade and Chris
Bosh hadn't even played
their first game together in
Miami before the focus
changed to Carmelo Antho-

ny.
The Melodrama finally
ended last week and imme-

diately kicked off an appar- .

ent Deronathon — the long

. journey until Deron Williams

can become a free agent.
Dwight Howard and Chris
Paul join him as the potential

‘headliners of the 2012 class. ©

Even before Anthony was
traded to New York and
Williams was dealt to.New
Jersey the next day, the three
All-Stars were already fac-
ing questions about their
plans.
They shouldn't answer.
That's the advice from
players who were part of last
year's free agency frenzy.
They believe Anthony's saga

_ was worse and think the one ~
involving next year's group

could even top that.

Wade said if he could go
back, he'd have done what
James did —:answer no

questions during the season. -

So his message for his
Olympic teammates is pretty
simple.

"Probably not to keep
talking about it," Wade said.

Hall of Famer and TNT
analyst Charles Barkley was
even more direct.

"The thing that bugs me
the most, I don't understand
why you talk about these
things when you're not a free
agent. Carmelo should have
came out like Albert Pujols
and said, 'Hey listen, we're
not going to talk about this
any more. I play for the Den-
ver Nuggets, and whatever
‘happens, happens,'" Barkley
said during the All-Star
break. "You should never
talk about the job you're
going to have in the future."

But the questions will be’

unavoidable. For Williams,
they began the minufe he

second half of a game against the San Antonio Spurs.

arrived in New Jersey. He
said during his news confer-
ence it was too soon to think

.about committing to the Nets

long term.

Paul is sure to draw just as
much media attention as
Anthony on Wednesday,
with New Orleans making its
lone visit to Madison Square

Garden. He's long been:con- ‘

sidered the next piece that
comes to New York —
unless it's Williams or
Howard.

That's the legacy of last
summer, when James, Wade
and Bosh set in motion the

idea of super teams through ©

free agency.

"I think at first it was the
unknown,.but now everyone
gets to see that quote-
unquote star players in this
league can go try to team up,

so now everyone wants to.

talk about where they can go
and who they can team up
with," Wade said. "Now it's
something that's become
reality."

The questions started
some two years early for last

. year's class. James at first

seemed to like the attention,
but tired of the ‘talk and the
effect it was having on the
Cavs. He announced in
November 2009 he wouldn't
take any more free agency
questions until the season

was over.

"It gets to the point where
you're answering for a cer-
tain amount of time and then
you would say, 'All right, I'm
done," said Amare
Stoudemire, the focus of
trade talk around the dead-

line two straight years before

leaving Phoenix for New
York in July.

"And once you say you're
done, then your team can

- refocus. Even though the talk

will still be out there, but the
team can refocus on the actu-
al goal of the year instead of
answering questions all sea-
son.’

The buzz around the Fok
nets' point guard started in
September with reports Paul
planned to ask out. Howard
expressed his frustration
three weeks ago with theo-
ries he would look to flee
Orlando: for bigger markets
in Los Angeles or New York.

Players can control the sto- '

ry — or at least contain it —
by simply refusing to partici-
pate in it, the route that
Anthony declined.

Even after his trade to
New York, he took to-his
Twitter account last week to
fire back when Nuggets
coach George Karl was criti-
cal of his defensive play.

Bosh went through that,

questions from the media —
not to mention fans on the
streets of Toronto — he was

’ barely gone when Raptors
‘general manager Bryan

Colangelo told a radio sta-
tion that his franchise player
had "checked out" late in the
season.)

_ "I would not want to go
through it again and the only
advice I could give them is
just stay strong, just kee
playing basketball," Bos
said. "As much as. you can,
don't let it affect you and just
be prepared for anything that
comes out there.

"People are going to say,
‘Oh, he's checked out, he's
not paying attention, he's giv-
en up on his team.' They're
going to try to find some
kind of way to just throw you
off your game. You just have
to just stay the trail, keep
practicing, keep working and
just be prepared to talk
about it every time you speak
with the media."

The on-deck free agents
say they learned from watch-
ing their predecessors, but
their situations will bring new
challenges. Perhaps even
questions about franchise
tags, which owners may push
for as way to keep this trio
from leaving.

"IT would just tell them
make statements about it,
talk about it early," Wade
said. -

"But once it gets into the
season, leave it alone,
because you can't control it.
You don't want it to get too
crazy where it's not about the

_ team, it's all about you’ and

what you're going to do. So
leave it alone after Novem-
ber."

us. We stink. Another dismal year,’
Brand said. "No, we played hard and
got better."

Brand has rediscovered his old

the playoffs :

i

Philadelphia 76ers were 3-13 and

another lost season appeared on the
horizon. Doug Collins could not leta
total collapse happen.

He wasn't hired to let the Sixers
plod through another year where the
only highlight would be a high lot-
tery pick. He called them together
and offered the type of scouting
report he might have unleashed if he
was still a TNT broadcaster.

Collins delivered a tough-love ser-
' mon that might have surprised more
than a few Sixers who had grown
comfortable in a losing environment.

"When we were 3-13, we could
have hung our heads and guys could
have went their separate ways. He
wouldn't let us," forward Elton
Brand said. "He called guys out,
which might not have happened in
the past. He straight-up called them
out. He said names. To their faces. In
’ front of the team."

Look at the Sixers now —-an
improbable 30-29 and playing with a
belief they can beat any top team in
the NBA.

When Collins calls out his players

these days, it's to heap praise on his
surging squad that has grown from
thinking they can make the playoffs
to believing they can win a first-round
series.
' In a league where superstars and
super teams rule, they've proved 12
talented players working hard and
working together can win.

"I wanted us to be relevant again.
We are," Collins said. "I want us to
be more than relevant. I want us to be
really good. I wanted people in the
NBA talking about us, which they
are."

The Sixers have won a season-high
four consecutive games entering
Tuesday's game against Dallas (43-
16). In November, a game against the
Mavericks would have been consid-
ered an automatic loss. Not anymore.

Consider this final against West-

ern Conference-leading San Anto-

nio from Feb. 11: 76ers 77, Spurs 71.

The numbers don't lie.

The Sixers are 27-16 since Novem-
ber 26, and are tied for the seventh-
highest winning percentage (.628) of
any team in the league over that span.

Philadelphia is above .500 for the

first time since it was 3-2 in 2009-10. -

The.Sixers have won 13 of their past
17 games, including six of the past
seven.

"We can't get caught up in the
numbers," swingman Andre Iguo-

‘dala said. "We're playing well right
now. We can't get too happy and
relax."

The Sixers are trying to accomplish
a rare feat in a league where the good
teams and bad ones have usually
shaken out by Thanksgiving.

The last time an NBA team was
10 games or below .500 and finished
with a winning record was.in the
2004-05 season.

The New Jersey Nets were 16-26

through games of Jan. 27, 2005 and -

finished 42-40. In that same season,
the Chicago Bulls were 5-15 through
games of Dec. 15, 2004 and finished
the season 47-35, according to
STATS LLC.

ness) and sparked the resurgence into

ence, just a game behind the retooled
New York Knicks. He leads the team

with averages of 15.3 points and 8.8 .

rebounds, and is shooting 55 percent
from the field since January. —

Iguodala has developed into a well-
rounded, triple-double threat, and
reserves like Thaddeus Young and
Lou Williams are winning games iate
in the fourth quarter.

Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner
have erased various dry spells to
prove they can be the backcourt of

’ the future, and make deep postseason
uns more of a reality. -

They beat the teams they're sup-
posed to beat — sub.-500 ones like
Detroit, Cleveland, Washington,
Charlotte — since January, while
knocking off winning teams like the
Spurs, Utah, Chicago, and Phoenix.
They went 9-3 in February (.750) for

‘ their third straight winning month.
The winning percentage was Philadel-
phia's highest in a single month since
February 2003 (8-2,..800).

As much as the numbers sparkle,
the Sixers credit Collins for the
tevival. "If we lose a game, it's not
coach’ Collins' fault," Young said.
"It's not his fault we were 3-13. It

‘ was definitely our fault. He's pre-
pared, he motivates us. That's what
we love about him, his intensity, his
love and his passion for the game."

Collins has the Sixers wanting more
over the remaining seven weeks. He
wants them to catch the Knicks (they
play once more on April 6) and lock
them into a more favorable playoff
series, like vs. the Bulls.

The growing crowds have been .

livelier, and the locker room is a fun
place for the players to hang after a
game. Maybe they can't win an NBA

+ title this year, but they have made
this season matter. "I wanted my
team to have fun," Collins said, "and
they're doing that."

Michigan
State faces
must-win
games for
NCAA
hopes

By LARRY LAGE
AP Sports Writer

EAST LANSING, Mich.
(AP) — Michigan State start-
ed the season ranked No. 2,
insisting that making a third
straight Final Four wouldn't
be satisfying.

As the unranked Spartans
(16-12, 8-8 Big Ten) start the
last week of the regular sea-
son, they simply hope to get
into the NCAA tournament.

"I don't talk about it all the
time because there's enough
pressure on them," Michigan
State coach Tom Izzo said
Monday. "It is something that
is important to all of them and
it is to me. I don't ignore it,
but I don't beat on it either./
We're telling them every
game is like an NCAA tour-
nament game for us now."

The Spartans probably
can't afford to close the sea-
son on a slide if they want to
extend their NCAA tourna-
ment streak to 14 years. They
host last-place Iowa on
Wednesday night and travel

to play rival Michigan on Sat- °

urday after losing to both
teams earlier this season.

The Hawkeyes have won
just three conference games,
but one of those victories was
by 20 points Feb. 2 at home
against Michigan State.

"T think that was the worst
we played in a couple of
years," Izzo.said. "Maybe
they had something to do with
it and we hada lot to do with
it. "

After winning three of four

-. games, Michigan State lost by

20 points to then-No. 8 Pur-
due on Sunday — its worst
loss at-home since 2003 —
and slumping senior Durrell

- Summers voiced disappoint-

ment.

"We tried to fix the 'D.'
We've tried to fix the offense
— and energy," Summers told
reporters Sunday. "Maybe it's
something else."

Izzo said Summers' com-
ments were relayed to him.

"Maybe I take offense to
some of the things I heard,"
Izzo said. "Do I blame him?

- Not at all. He's frustrated."

Summers was an NCAA

. regional MVP last year, help-

ing Michigan State reach its
second straight Final Four,
and averaged 18.8 points on
55 percent shooting over five
games in the NCAA tourna-

ment. He is averaging 9.5 |

points in the Big Ten on 33
percent shooting this season,
hurting a team that desper-
ately needs a Second scorer
to consistently compliment
senior point guard Kalin
Lucas.

Izzo, though, is trying to
take pressure off Summers by
accepting responsibility for an
underachieving season.

’ "I'll take all the blame for
the way the season has gone

_ to take it off his shoulders,"

Izzo said. "When you're a star
coach, you have to coach to
that level."

Izzo, who won the 2000
national championship ‘and

‘ has coached in half of the past,

dozen Final Fours, turned

, down a chance to coach the

Cleveland Cavaliers last sum-
mer in'part because he loves

the program he has devel- .

_ oped.

Former Michigan State

greats such as Earvin "Magic"

Johnson, Steve Smith, Mateen
Cleaves and Jason Richard-

"son stay in contact with Izzo

and his players. Izzo said none

_ of them has been able to

reach his senior class like they
had with previous groups.

"This group hasn't
embraced it the same way,"
Izzo said. "That's a coach's
job to make sure that is taken
care of. It should fall squarely
on my shoulders."

NEL: Raiders deals include
no signing bonuses .

By JOSH DUBOW
AP Sports Writer

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP)
—, While the Oakland.

Raiders have handed out
some big contracts already to

keep potential free agents off:

the open market, they won't
have to start’ paying out on

those deals until after there's

a resolution to the league's
labour dispute.

The Raiders have made
more than $80 million in com-
mitments to five of their play-
ers, but none of those deals
include signing bonuses that
need to be paid‘ before any
games are played.

"When you're signing these :

players to contracts the way
we signed them, these con-

. tracts are all for the future,"
‘ senior executive John Her-°

rera said Monday. "These
guys will have to come in and
play.and earn their money
before they get paid. The
Raiders have not paid out a
dime at this point in time."

The Raiders have been one
of the most aggressive teams
so far this offseason as most
clubs wait until a new collec-
tive bargaining agreement is
reached before making
moves. The current CBA
expires Thursday.

Oakland gave cornerback
Stanford Routt a $31.5 mil-
lion, three-year deal; handed
defensive tackle Richard Sey-
mour a $30 million, two-year
contract with $22.5 million in
guarantees; placed a $10.1
million franchise tag on line-
backer.Kamerion Wimbley;
signed defensive tackle John
Henderson to an $8 million,
two-year deal and signed spe-
cial teams standout and back-
up running back Rock
Cartwright to an undisclosed
contract.

"What we did is protect our
football team," Herrera said.

ae These are moves that pro- -
tect our franchise and protect.
* our team and put us in a posi-

tion to move. on."
Herrera-equated the move

_ to keep Seymour as Oak-

land's "first-round pick" this
year since the Raiders sent

that selection to New Eng-

land before the 2009 season
to acquire Seymour. He has
already played two seasons in
Oakland, making the Pro
Bowl last year as the Raiders
finished 8-8 for the first non-
losing season since 2002.
Seymour made a big impact

- on the field, as well as in the

locker room where a mostly
young team viewed him as a
strong leader with the experi-
ence of having won three
Super Bowl titles with the
Patriots.

"In my opinion, he was the
heartbeat of our defense as
far as high level of perfor-
mance he demands from
everybody on the field,"
Routt said. "He's definitely
someone you don't want to
disappoint or let down
because he came from New

England where he won three

titles. You don't want him to
have any harsh feelings about
no longer being in New Eng-
land."

The Raiders tried to keep
Wimbley for much less money
by exercising a $3.5 million
buyback option that would
have given him about $4.1
million next season. But the
NFL ruled that contract was
invalid so the Raiders used
the franchise tag instead to
keep the player who léd-the
team in sacks last season.

Oakland views Routt as a
potential number one corner-
back after he had his best sea-
son in six years as a pro last
year, putting up some of the
best numbers in the league in
terms of shutting down oppos-
ing receivers.

Malaga moved out of last

Sofiane Feghouli put

"I'm euphoric," Ronaldin-
ho said after Flamengo's 1-0

; victory over Boavista in the

is how I want to make history

The goal in the Guanabara
Cup — the first stage of the
Rio de Janeiro state champi-
onship — was Ronaldinho's

third since making his debut .

with the popular Brazilian
club following a transfer from
AC Milan in January, a move
that brought him back to
Brazil after thriving with
some of Europe's top clubs.

right time," the 30- -year- -old
Ronaldinho said.

_ happy again.'

Ronaldinho was FIFA's
player of the year in 2004 and
2005 with Barcelona, but was
struggling recently with AC
Milan and decided to return
home to revamp his. career.

"My goal is to return to the
national team as soon as pos-
sible," he said. "I'll keep
working hard."

Ronaldinho is yet to have a
stellar performance since his
debut with Flamengo on Feb.
2, but the club has won five of
the six matches he played.

He scored his first goal with
Flamengo with a penalty kick

against Boavista in the group
. stage on February 6, and his

second came with a header

Ronaldinho’s return to Brazil already a success

‘against Murici in the Brazilian

Cup on February 16.

The 71st-minute goal on
Sunday came.at a, crucial
moment for Flamengo, which

. was dominating the match but .

was having difficulties getting
past the opponent's tight
defensive scheme at the
Engenhao stadium in Rio.

He curled a right-footed
shot over the wall, striking it
so perféctly that he began
running to celebrate even
before the ball hit the net. He
ran near the sideline with sev-
eral teammates lined up
behind him, all dancing
together.

The playmaker was praised

and hailed in headlines across

Brazil's top newspapers on

(AP Photo)

Monday.

"Ronaldinho decides with
masterful goal," the Lance
sports daily said.

‘ "Ronaldinho gives Fla-
mengo the title," read a front-
page headline in the O Boe
newspaper in Rio.

Ronaldinho signed with
Flamengo in January after a
controversial negotiation that
involved two other Brazilian
clubs, Palmeiras and Gremio,
where he started his career.

Ronaldinho's agent and:
brother Roberto Assis nego-
tiated with the three clubs for
several days before announc-
ing Ronaldinho's decision to
join Flamengo until the 2014
World Cup, which will be
played in Brazil.





WINNING RETURN: Flamengo’s Ronaldinho holds up the Guanabara shah after Flamengo defeated Boavista 1-0 in the Guanabara cup fi final

Opening lead — ten of clubs.

The opportunity to win a trick
does not mean one is obliged to do
so. There are times when a player —
whether declarer or defender — is
best advised to refuse a trick he can
win.

Consider this deal where West
started off on the right foot by lead-
ing the ten of clubs. After everyone
followed low, West continued with
the nine, overtaken by East with the

of trumps represented two sure
trump winners regardless of
declarer’s trump holding or what he
did next.

There is no magic rule that
answers the question of when a
player should take or refuse to take a
particular trick. It depends on the cir-
cumstances, If it is advantageous to
win the trick, you do so; if there is
something to be gained by refusing
to win the trick, you don’t win it.
More often than not, you win a trick
when you can, but the overriding fac-
tor in every case is good judgment.

Donald wins Match Play in record fashion

By DOUG FERGUSON
AP Golf Writer

MARANA, Ariz. (AP) —
The weirdest week ever at the
Match Play Championship
ended with what must have
felt like a strange sensation
for Luke Donald.

He was posing with a tro-
phy on American soil.

It had been five years since
Donald last won a PGA Tour
event, though it certainly was
not from a lack of effort. Play-
ers don't crack the top 10 in
the world without doing
something right. But this was
a week when almost nothing
went wrong.

When he closed out Mar-
tin Kaymer on the 16th hole
Sunday, the 33-year-old Eng-'
lishman had won his first
World Golf Championship
with a performance that is
stunning by the numbers
alone: .

— He played 89 holes in six
matches, the fewest ever in
the 13-year history of this
event, and became the first
player to never trail after any
hole in any match. Donald led

. his opponent after 81 of those
89 holes.

— He made 32 bicaice:
which is slightly better than
one every three holes.

— He became the first
player to win any tournament
without ever having to play
the 18th hole. Donald's
longest match was in the set-
ond round when he beat .
Edoardo Molinari on the 17th
hole.

Donald won the Madrid
Masters last year on the Euro-
pean Tour against a relatively
week field. .

This time, he beat the best.

"I solely focus on trying to
win tournaments," Donald
said. "I felt like I hadn't won
my fair share for as good a
player as I felt I was and could
be. It was disappointing. It
was frustrating to me. To

come here and compete ©

against the best players in the
world and win the trophy is
very gratifying."

As for the rest of the week,
it was surreal.

It started with Tiger Woods
losing in the first round by
hitting a 3-wood into the
desert on the first extra hole.
Then came Saturday, and the
greatest comeback in Accen-
ture Match Play Champi-
onship when Bybba Watson
rallied from 5 down with eight

holes to play to beat J.B.

Holmes on the 19th hole,
after perhaps the longest time
it took to take a drop.

Sunday morning was off the
charts.

Donald drew back the cur-

tains in his hotel room to see
Dove Mountain covered in

‘snow. An overnight winter

storm dropped nearly an inch
of snow in the high desert,

and four hours before the

championship match, the fair-
ways were white.

The snow melted in plenty
of time, but on the fourth hole
against Kaymer, play was

: halted for 10 minutes because
sleet covered the fairway and .

RECORD FASHION: Luke Donald of England tips his cap to the crowd
after defeating Martin Kaymer of Germany 3 and 2 in the finals of the
Match Play Championship tournament Sunday.

green. They had to wait for it
to melt.

"It was kind of bizarre
crouching under my umbrella
like that," Donald said: "We
had to pause for 10 or 15 min-
utes just for the green to dry
out. It was testing conditions."

That was about the only big
test he faced all week.

Kaymer's consolation prize
was going to No. 1 in the
world, which he assured just
by reaching the championship

‘match. He earned enough

points as the runner-up to
replace Lee Westwood, who
had'been there for 17 weeks.

Westwood.at No. 1 brought
out the critics because when
he took .over for Tiger

Woods, he had only three

wins on his two-year ledger
for the world ranking. That
wasn't an issue for Kaymer,
whose seven wins over the
last two years includes a
major.

Donald, with his 3-and-2 ;

victory to beat Kaymer, went

up to a career-best No. 3.
That made him pause.
"Whether I deserve No. 3

in the world, I don't know,"

he said. "Certainly in terms
of my work ethic and wanting
it, then I do deserve it." ‘

Asked to explain what he
meant, Donald again men-
tioned his lack of wins.

‘The Match Play counts as
his third PGA Tour victory,
and first since the 2006 Honda
Classic. He has won three
times in Europe.

He expected more out of
himself.

Even so, he was dismissive
of anyone who would suggest
he was playing for the money.
An American writer a few
years ago, writing for the
British press, referred to any-
one satisfied with a big check
as having "Luke Donald dis-
ease."

During his press confer-
ence, a prominent British
journalist mentioned Don-
ald's critics and. asked if he
had noticed them and took
satisfaction out of shutting
them up. .

"I've noticed a few of
yours," Donald said with a
grin. "I try not.to pay too
much attention. But the
media is hard to escape. And
I think unfairly at,times, I've
kind of been ... depicted as
someone that is very happy
contending, picking up
checks, but doesn't really care
about winning. And that is
really as far away from the
truth as it can be.

"I feel like my work ethic is

as good as any player out
here," he said. "I work very
hard trying to think about
ways to keep improving, keep
getting better. And winning
is what it's all about."

His work on the short game
cannot be questioned, for it
carried Donald to victory
against Kaymer.

Donald opened a 3-up lead
through five holes, the most
impressive at No. 4 after the
sleet delay, when Donald
stuffed his approach into 2
feet and Kaymer missed his
7-foot birdie.

The German came right
back and squared the match
after nine holes, then
appeared to have the advan-
tage on the 10th when Donald
went from the desert into a
waste area short of the green.
It's a tough shot from com-
pacted sand, not knowing how
the ball will come out. Donald
blasted out to 3 feet to halve
the hole, and he won the 11th
and 12th to take command.

From short of the 15th
green, he hit a delicate wedge
to 3 feet and went 3 up with
three holes to play.

"It was a very good week -

for me," Kaymer said. "Of
course, I was hoping to win
today. I was trying everything
I could. I just didn't play as
good as the last few days. And
the way Luke plays, even a
degent round isn't enough."

A decent week wasn't good
enough for Donald. He fixed
that with a week unlike any
other, and the biggest win n of
his career.

OBITUARIES


February O1 1924 Septe.rber 23, 2-8

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God has laid you see
I took His hand when I heard Him call
I turned my back and left it all
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joys,
A friendship shared. a laugh. a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee,
God wanted me now; He set me free!
Gone But Not Forgotten.

Remembered by his wife: Veronica Agnes
DeGregory; children: Karen, Shelley, Dwight,
Lavonda, Lester, Colin. Italia: Grandchildren:
Kyra. Kamaal, Kean, Rasheeda, Verron, Jeffrey,.
Lauren, Dominico. Alissa, Toi, Phylicia, Joshua;

FROM pageone 200 Chinese labourers 'to build road'


cheaper than if it had got it
from other international mon-
ey-lending sources, it is not this
but rather the long-term impact
on the Bahamian economy and
unemployment levels that
should be a priority.
He suggested that since it is
the government itself, and not a
private sector entity such as
Baha Mar that is planning the
project, it could easily choose
not do involve the Chinese
labour, but rather make the


project Bahamian-led.
"The question for me is
whether or not this government
considered the option of giving
Bahamians the work even
though the cost of executing
the contract would've been
higher than with the Chinese
concessionary loan, because the
impact of hiring Bahamian
workers would've had a greater
impact on the economy of The
Bahamas.


"We (the PLP) have con-
cluded that we cannot support
this resolution on that very
basis," said Mr Christie, adding
that it would not appear there is
any work involved in the con-
struction of the highway that
would be beyond the technical
capacities of Bahamian con-
struction workers.
Prior to the PLP's objection
to the resolution, Minister of
State Zhivargo Laing, speaking


for the government, told of how
the concessionaryy" ,oan for
the highway would be provided
to the government from the
Export Import Bank of China -
the same state-owned bank that
has agreed to finance the Baha
Mar resort project on Cable
Beach on better terms than
it could get anywhere on the
"open market."
The project will see 6.2 miles
of John F Kennedy Drive
"dualised" into a four-lane car-
riageway that the government
says will ease traffic congestion
which is projected to worsen on
the road corridor going for-
ward, and make travel between
the airport and downtown Nas-
sau quicker, safer and more
attractive, among other bene-
fits.
Mr Laing noted that the
loan's two per cent interest
rate is around five per cent
lower than the government
would have been able to bor-
row the, money for elsewhere,
and over the 20-year life of the
loan will save the government
around $30 million in interest
compared with what it would
have paid on a higher-rate
loan.
"These terms could not be
found anywhere else in the
world," said Mr Laing..Only
interest and no principal pay-
ments will be paid during the
first five years of the loan.
Mr Laing added: "It is not
new news about how Chinese
concessionary funding brings
with it Chinese labour."
* The Minister advised that
around 20 to 30 Chinese
labourers would be involved in
the investigative preparatory
phases of the project, seven to
ten in management staffing, 80
for the installation of high volt-
age cables, 20 for light instal-

injuries were, or whether the
incident occurred on West Bay
Street as alleged.
Dr Hanna insisted that if the
investigation uncovers evi-
dence that the allegations are
true, the PHA will take the
"necessary or appropriate"
action which may include
dismissal.-
A source with knowledge of
the Emergency' Medical Ser-
vices said this is only the latest
in a series, of allegations
against staff.
"The public don't know
about it, but there are a lot of
allegations of stuff going
down.
"If these claims are exposed,
maybe someone will take a
closer look at what is going
on," the source said.
While touring the grounds
of the Princess Margaret Hos-
pital, Mike Edwards, a para-
medic from the United States,
was shocked to learn of the


ongoing investigation at the
government-run hospital.
Unlike the Bahamas, the US
government does not afford
national health care, and Mr.
Edwards noted that emer-
gency medical services in his
country were compensated by
an individual's private health
insurance.


He added: "A lot of people
in the US don't have health
insurance and if they don't
have coverage, they'll pay out
of pocket but what happens a
lot of times what the emer-
gency services will do is just
write it off because they can't
force you to pay if you don't
have the money."


lation and 60 for water main
set-up.
"In total, 200 or so Chinese
total over the period of the
development not at any one
time," said Mr Laing.
The Chinese labour involved
in this project would be entire-
ly separate and in addition to
the 8,150 work permits the Chi-
nese are seeking for Chinese
and other expatriate labourers.
to come to The Bahamas to
help construct the Cable Beach
resort.
It is not entirely clear when
the labourers would begin
arriving to participate in the
highway project, although the
government anticipates that
construction may begin in Jan-
uary of next year, and be entire-
ly completed by October 2012.
The 200 Chinese expected to
work on the road and other
connected utilities and land-
scaping are to be joined by an
estimated 100 Bahamian
labourers.
First word of the Chinese
offer,to fund the highway pro-
ject was given in September of
last year when .Wu Bangguo,

over 'extortion' claim


Committee of the National
People's Congress in China -
one of the country's top offi-
cials visited The Bahamas
with a large delegation.
While the main news coming
out of that visit was the frame-
work agreements signed by the
Chinese with the developers of
Baha Mar, the government also
signed a preliminary agreement
on the almost $60 million high-
way loan during this visit.
The PLP issued a statement
last night in which it claimed
the government's decision to
go with the Chinese funding
and subsequent labour compo-
nent "re-enforces a decidedly
anti-Bahamian posture" the
opposition party alleges to have
been taken by the government
when it comes to hiring.
The statement highlighted
the contracting of Jamaican
Vinette Graham-Allen as
Director of Public Prosecutions,
the decision to place into retire-
ment numerous senior police
officers, and the alleged hiring
of a foreign judge's wife as a
prosecutor in theAttorney
General's Office as other evi-
dence of this.

FULL-SCALE SIMULATED PLANE

CRASH HELD AT AIRPORT


TESTING the facility's pre-
paredness strategy, the Nas-
sau Airport Development
Company (NAD) on Tuesday
conducted a full-scale simu-
lated aircraft crash at the Lyn-
den Pindling International
Airport.
The event, dubbed "Opera-
tion Sunset", was scheduled
during the evening to test
response times after dark.
The scenario of the crash
simulation was as follows:
At approximately 5.50pm,
information was received from
the pilot of a Tallboy Air flight
2841, an international flight
enroute from Two Foot, Plea-
sure Island to Nassau, stating
that he was experiencing power
fluctuations in his right and left
engines.
The pilot said there were 38
passengers, four crew and 1,000
gallons of fuel on board.
He reported that the aircraft
was aD-Hallivand 8 (pash 8),
that they were 15 miles out and


that he is declaring an emer-
gency.
At 6pm, while on final
approach for runway 09, both
engines shut down and the air-
craft crashed short of the run,
way threshold and burst into
flames. Thick black.smoke
emanated from the door of the
cabin and there are numerous
fatalities among passengers and
crew.
The manifest indicated that
there were 15 Jamaicans, eight
Cubans, 12 Bahamians and
three Haitians on board.
NAD officials partnered with
the relevant stakeholders,
including the Royal Bahamas
Police Force, Royal Bahamas
Defence Force, Civil Aviation
Department, National Emer-
gency Management Agency
(NEMA), Emergency Medical
Services (EMS), Airport
Authority, MED Evac,
Bahamasair, Bahamas Red
Cross Society and Doctors Hos-
pital for the drill.

Stocks waver as traders

STEPHEN BERNARD,
AP Business Writer
NEW YORK

Traders put their September
stock rally on hold and moved
into Treasurys and gold
Wednesday, a day after the
Federal Reserve said it was
ready to take more action to
boost the economy, according
to Associated Press.
The Dow Jones industrial
average fell 21 points in after-
noon trading.
With no new economic data
out Wednesday and the Fed's
announcement late Tuesday
having a bigger impact on the
bond and currency markets,
Bob Auer, portfolio manager
of the Auer Growth Fund, said
it was natural for stocks to
pause.
Major indexes have been on
a tear this month as economic
reports have consistently indi-
cated the economy continues
to grow, albeit slowly.
"People are saying, 'I've got
some profits, let's book 'em,'"'
Auer said. Entering Wednes-
day, the Dow had risen 13 of
the past 15 days and climbed
7.5 percent so far in Septem-
ber.

specific actions to strengthen
the economy, but investors

AMR shares fall after disappointing outlook


DAVID KOENIG,
AP Airlines Writer
DALLAS

Shares of American Airlines
parent AMR Corp. tumbled
more than 9 percent Wednes-
day afternoon after the compa-
ny's outlook for stronger rev-
enue failed to impress some
analysts.
The company said late Tues-
day that third-quarter unit rev-
enue, or total revenue divided
by available seats times miles
flown, would grow between 9.8
percent and 10.8 percent com-
pared with a year ago.


At a time when many airlines
have been boosting revenue
with higher fares and fees on
checked baggage, analysts'
comments suggested that
AMR's outlook wasn't rosy
enough. Three of them widened
their estimates of AMR's full-
year losses.
JP Morgan analyst Jamie
Baker said the outlook "paints
a softer-than-expected 3Q out-
come," and Dahlman Rose &
Co. analyst Helane Becker said
she would continue to avoid
AMR shares.
AMR was the only major
U.S. airline to lose money in


the second quarter, Analysts
expected it to earn 53 cents per
share in the third quarter,
according to a Thomson
Reuters survey.
Becker widened her full-year
estimated AMR loss to $1.65
per share from $1.53 per share.
Similarly, Baker predicted a
loss of $1.22 per share, wider
than his previous forecast of a
loss of 82 cents per share; and
Stifel-Nicolaus analyst Hunter
Keay called for a loss of $1.22
per share compared with his
old estimate of a $1.08-per-
share loss.

Guidance

Keay said AMR's revenue
guidance indicated that domes-
tic leisure fares are probably
softening.
AMR, fell 65 cents, or 9.5
percent, to $6.23 in afternoon
trading.
In its report Tuesday, AMR
also said its balance of unre-
stricted cash and short-term
investments would fall to
around $4.3 billion by Sept. 30,
down from about $5 billion at
the end of June.
Becker said labor issues were
a bigger problem than liquidity.
"We continue to avoid these
shares due to the lack of prof-
itability and the company's
labor contracts," she wrote in a
note to clients.
American says it has higher
labor costs than other airlines,
and it's negotiating new con-
tracts with its three unions.
Two of the unions have
asked federal officials for per-
mission to move toward a
strike.

GLBLE AI(EEOPET


EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT
members watch Jose
Manuel Barroso, Presi-
dent of the European
Commission, delivering
his statement on the state
of the Union at the Euro-
pean Parliament in Stras-
bourg, eastern France,
Tuesday Sept. 7, 2010. In
his first State of the Union
address to parliament,
Barroso said that eco-
nomic reform in the wake
of the crisis must be
accelerated-and added he
would propose taxes on
financial activities in the
next month or two.


A look at economic developments and activity in major stock markets around the world onWednes-
day:


BRUSSELS The European Union Parliament approved creation of new financial over-
sight institutions aimed at preventing another financial crisis like the one that led to massive
bank bailouts at taxpayer expense.
The parliament overwhelmingly backed the plan to set up watchdog boards for the financial mar-
kets, banking and insurance sectors in addition to a European board to make sure the EU can avoid
new crises. The institutions should become active at the beginning of next year.
Parliamentary approval in Strasbourg, France, was the last hurdle for the plans, which were hailed
as a major step forward in EU-wide financial management. The EU member states had already
approved them earlier this month.


LONDON Pursuit of "the fast buck" is undermining Britain's economy, a government' min-
ister said as he announced a review of corporate governance, executive pay and takeovers.
Vince Cable, who heads the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, spoke at the
annual conference of the Liberal Democrats, the junior partner in Prime Minister David Cameron's
Conservative-led coalition government,


LONDON The euro hit a five-month high above $1.34, while European shares fell after the
Federal Reserve hinted that it was ready to provide more assistance to the weak U.S. economy, the
world's largest.
The FTSE .100 index of leading British shares closed down 0,4 percent, Germany's DAX fell 1,1
percent and the CAC-40 in France was 1,3 percent lower,


TOKYO Earlier in Asia, Japan's Nikkei 225 stock average closed down 0.4 percent as the yen
strengthened. Hong Kong's Hang Seng added 0.2 percent. Markets were closed for holidays in South
Korea, mainland China and Taiwan.


LISBON, Portugal Portugal raised euro750 million ($1 billion) in a debt auction that drew
strong investor interest, but its borrowing cost was the highest since it joined the euro, underlin-
ing market worries about the country's financial health. The Portuguese sale follows solid bond auc-
tions Tuesday in other indebted countries: Ireland, Spain and Greece. The ability of those gov-
ernments to raise money relieved some short-term market pressure.
However, the high interest rates from the Portuguese auction deepened worries about how the
country will service its debt in the long term amid anemic growth.


DUBAI, United Arab Emirates A senior Dubai finance official predicts the UAE economy
will top $272 billion this year, suggesting a strong recovery forthe Arab world's second-biggest econ-
omy.
He said the rise came from increased liquidity and growth in important sectors such as trade, trans-
port and finance.


BERLIN Shares of Deutsche Bank AG dropped sharply after the bank said it expected to post
a third-quarter net loss because it plans to absorb a big charge related to an acquisition.
Deutsche Bank expects a euro2.3 billion ($3.1 billion) charge stemming from its planned
takeover of retail lender Deutsche Postbank AG to result in the loss for the quarter.
It said that, even before the charge, it expected a profit "significantly below" the level of last year's
third quarter "consistent with its earlier expectations and the poorer market conditions during
the summer months."


ATHENS, Greece Protesting truck drivers blocked traffic on Greece's two busiest highways
and clashed with police in front of parliament as lawmakers approved a shake-up of labor market
rules as part of an agreement for international rescue loans.
The drivers, protesting for a 10th day, sealed off the highways outside Athens minutes after par-
liament voted in favor of legislation to scrap restricted licensing rules for trucks.
Greece has promised to reform its labor market as part of austerity measures agreed in return
for euro110 billion ($144 billion) in rescue loans from European countries and the International
Monetary Fund.


BUCHAREST, Romania Romania needs to borrow almost euro6 billion ($7.9 billion) next
year to cover its budget deficit and plans to sign a new deal with the International Monetary Fund
in 2011 to shore up the ailing economy, the. president said. Meanwhile, at least 10,000 people protest-
ed in Bucharest against wage cuts and other austerity measures, authorities said. Angry protesters
were demanding the government increases salaries to the 2009 level and stop layoffs of public work-
ers. Authorities slashed public sector wages and hiked sales tax to reduce the budget deficit, as the
IMF had requested. President Traian Basescu said the country still needed help with its finances,
and said that spending cuts would continue.

So much to learn


NOW that we have just about completed
the Back-To-School activities, our minds
fill with a variety of thoughts whether we
have school-age children or not Let us
consider just some of the possibilities.
For the children, it can be a relief to
move back into a structured routine, to
meet old friends, and to wear new uniforms
which measure the growth that has
occurred since last year.
The fact of being one year nearer to
graduation may captivate some, while the
thought of acquiring new skills and ideas
may motivate others to try even harder this
year. There are stories to tell, jokes to
exchange, if it is a return to familiar

ground, or the challenge of making new
friends and learning a different culture if-
this year brings the shift to unknown terri-.
tory.
Parents are dealing with their own set of
emotions associated with watching the
"baby" leaving the nest, finding money for
fees and school supplies, or prayers for


safety on the streets, better grades, and
hassle-free home-work. The time does fly
when we look back, but day to day it may
*seem like an eternity.
For the hard-working teachers, other
thoughts arise. Adjustments are already
being made to prepare materials for new
grades, to settle into a new school, to wel-
come a new principal, or to celebrate reno-
vations. Their prayers may focus more on
more patience, improved student behav-
iour and academic excellence, parent coop-
eration and increased home-work supervi-
sion, cordial staff relations and the pleas-
ures derived from successful extra-curricu-
lar activities


Motorists are already considering alter-
native routes as they recognize the change
in traffic flow, while police officers know
that pedestrians will have a hard time
crossing streets and always appeal to adults
to keep an eye out for our little ones.
Lunch vans and others who sell snacks to
children are all stocked and in full swing
now.
I pray that we are all back in the school
of life to learn about kindness and care,
love and loyalty, about our need for God to
guide our decisions. How grateful are we
really for our blessings? How appreciative
are we of the efforts of others to make the
world a beautiful place? How strong are
we when faced with the temptation to be
lawless? What would we find ourselves
doing as a desperate person in a desperate
situation? Let us pray for us all to be spiri-
tually prepared to allow adverse conditions
to bring out the best in us. We truly need
the Lord more than ever.


The fear of discouragement


ELIJAH is one of my favourite .Bible characters
Never had a man of God enjoyed a greater moment
than his experience at Mt Carmel. Boldness, fai'h,
power, obedience and effective prayer describe
Elijah as he stood with the worshippers of Baal.
But deliverance in I Kings 18 was followed by dis-
couragement in I Kings 19. His attitude went from
boldness before God to blaming God for his trouble
What happened? Fear replaced faith, power %was
drained b) pit), and disobedience replaced obedi-
ence.
How quickly things changed! Sounds familiar?
Examine I Kings 19 and you will discover the four-
thoughts on discouragement.
First of all, discouragement hurts our self-iunage:
While he himself went a day's journey) into the
desert, he came and sat down under a tree and
prayed that he might die. "I have had enough.
Lord," he said. "Take my life; I am no belitter than m,
ancestors." I Kings chapter 19:4.
Discouragement causes us to see ourselves less
than we recall are. This fact becomes even more
important when we realise that we cannot consistent-
ly perform m a manner that is inconsistent with the
wa. we see ourselves.
Secondly, discouragement causes us to evade oltr
responsibilttie.s:
There he went into a cave and spent the night.
And the Word of the Lord came to him: "HWhat are
you doing here Elijah?" (Verse 9 N.I.V) Elijah was
called to do great exploits but here we see him hiding
because of fear. Faith brings us to ministry. Fear
hands us only misery.
Thirdly, discouragement cansei us to
1l blame others for our predicament:
As he said, "I have been
very zealous for the


W BISHOP VG




Lord, the God of host: for the sons of Israel have for-
saken thy covenant, torn down thine altars and killed
th\ prophets with the sword and I alone am left: and
the\ seek my life to take it awa%." (Verse 10)
Fourth., discourageimieii causes us not to be able to
sec the fits:
"Yet. I ill leave seen thousand in Israel, all the
knees that have not bowed to Baal and every mouth
that has not kissed him". (Verse 18)
Discouragement had done a number on this great
prophet jnd if it happened to him what about us and
Shat about others?
Discouragement is contagious. You may have
heard the store) of the fellow who was about to jump
from a brdJge. An alert police officer slowly method-
icall% mo :d towards him, simultaneously talking to
him. The %would-be jumper told the policeman that
his wife had left him and his business was bankrupt.
To him ever thing in life had lost meaning.
\\e are all subject to the currents of discourage-
ment that can sweep us into a danger zone. If we can
determine the causes of discouragement we can eas-
tly avoid it.

Discouragement comes when we feel that oppor-
tunity for success is gone.
Discouragement comes %when we become selfish.
Usually people who are discouraged are thinking
mainly about one thing themselves.
Don't klt discouragement get the better part of you
in your pursuit to achieving your goal.

Ahmadinejad blames capitalism for poverty


By EDITH M LEDERER
Associated Press Writer

UNITED NATIONS (AP)
- Iran's president on Tues-
day predicted the defeat of
capitalism and blamed global
big business for the suffering
of millions, but Germany's
chancellor said market
economies were key to lifting
the world's least developed
countries out of poverty.
The clash of visions at the
UN anti-poverty summit drew
a line under the stark differ-
ences on easing the misery of
the one billion people living
on less than $1.25 a day.
More than 140 presidents,
prime ministers and kings are
attending the three-day sum-
mit which started Monday to
assess and spur on achieve-
ment of UN targets set by
world leaders in 2000. The
plan called for an intensive
global campaign to ease
poverty, disease and inequal-
ities between rich and poor
by 2015.
Iranian President Mah-
moud Ahmadinejad, howev-
er, never mentioned the Mil-
lennium Development Goals
in his speech to the 192-mem-
ber General Assembly.
Instead, he took aim atecap-
italism and called for the
overhaul of "undemocratic
and unjust" global decision-
making bodies, which are
dominated by the United
States and other Western
powers. While Ahmadinejad
didn't single out any country,
he said world leaders, thinkers
and global reformers should
"spare no effort"' to make
practical plans for a Rew.
world order reform of
international economic and
political institutions.
"It is my firm belief that in
the new millennium, we need
to revert to the divine mind-
set...based on the justice-seek-
ing nature of mankind, and

said in a brief speech inter-

approaches are facing defeat."
Ahmadinejad proposed

"The countries themselves

Merkel said.

And in Africa, Asia and
Latin America there also has
been a lack of progress in
meeting other key goals:
reducing mother and child
deaths, increasing the num-
ber of people with access to
basic sanitation, and promot-
ing women's equality. Ban is
expected to launch a new ini-
tiative Wednesday to spur
action on improving the lot
of women and children.
I his speech, Ahmadine-
jad did not mention Iran's
nuclear programme or the
four rounds of UN Security
Council sanctions over
Tehran's refusal to prove it is
not trying to build a nuclear
weapon. Iran.claims it is only
working on nuclear power to
generate electricity.
The subject may be raised
again Thursday when the
General Assembly's annual
ministerial meeting begins.
Russian Foreign Minister
Sergey Lavrov raised the
sanctions issue in his speech,
saying UN sanctions were not
intended to' harm ordinary
civilians. He voiced "serious
concern" at additional sanc-
tions imposed by individual
countries.
The criticism appeared
aimed at the United States,
the European Union, Aus-
tralia, Canada, Japan and
South Korea, all of whom
have imposed their own much
tougher sanctions on Tehran.
"We are convinced that
such practice contradicts the
efforts to achieve the MDGs
and must be brought to an
end," Lavrov said, using the
initials of the Millennium
Development Goals.
To counter these threats,
Lavrov said Russia was ready
to help with information and
communication technology
"to bridge the gap between
the developed and develop-
ing countries and as a
result to promote global
development."


President Ellen Johnson
Sirleaf of Liberia, one of the
world's poorest nations that
has made progress because of
the goals, said Africa "still has
far to go" but if efforts are
intensified "we will, ultimate-
ly, achieve them."
"My message is this: As we
renew our resolve in 2010, we
must recognize the need for
inclusive economic growth.
We need rapid, stable, and
sustained growth that creates
jobs, especially for youth and
in sectors that benefit the
poor, and expands opportu-
nities for women," she said.
Pakistan's Foreign Minis-
ter Shah Mahmood Qureshi
said until a few years ago his
country was on track to
achieve a number of the
MDGs, but the fight against
terrorism and the recent
unprecedented flooding "have
changed almost everything."
The MDGs remain "the
centerpiece" of Pakistan's
development programme, he
said, but the rehabilitation of
flood-ravaged areas will cost
billions and will impact eco-
nomic recovery and achieve-
ment of the UN goals.
At events on the sidelines
of, the summit, US Secretary
of State Hillary Rodham Clin-
ton launched a programme to
address chronic malnutrition
blamed for 3.5 million mater-
nal and child deaths a year.
The programme, co-spon-
sored by the Irish govern-
ment, focuses on the first
1,000 days of a child's life,
during which nutrition is crit-
ical to mental and physical
development.
Later, Clinton helped
launch a new programme to
place cleaner cooking stoves
in 100 million homes by 2020.
.She said unsafe stfves expose
as many as three billion peo-
ple to toxic chemicals and
smoke, and upgrading them
can save and improve "mil-
lions of lives."


Commonwealth Games at risk with under two weeks left


By C. RAJSHEKHAR RAO
AP Sports Wrifer

NEW DELHI (AP) -
One of the world's biggest
sports events is in jeopardy as
organizers struggle to cope
with unfinished buildings, an
athletes' village described as
"unfit for human habitation,"
a bridge collapse, concerns
over security and corruption,
and an outbreak of dengue
fever.
The October 3-14 Com-
monwealth Ganies, which
bring together .more than
7,000 athletes from the 71
countries and territories every
four years, was supposed to
showcase the emerging power
of India just as the 2008
Beijing Olympics did for Chi-
na.
Instead, the Ne'w Delhi
Games are highlighting the
problems in the developing
nation of more than 1 billion
people that is still plagued by
vast areas of poverty.
The frenzied, last-minute
preparations are in such dis-
array with less than two
weeks before the opener that
some officials are speculating
that a few teams could with-
draw or the event could be
called off.
The latest blow came Tues-
day, with the collapse of a
footbridge being built to con-
nect the main stadium to a
parking lot. Police said 23
construction workers were
injured, five seriously.
Hours earlier, the Com-
monwealth Games Federa-
tion urged the Indian govern-
ment to finish work on the
athletes' village, which is due
to open Thursday. In addition
to shoddy conditions inside
and outside the buildings,
there also are problems with
plumbing, wiring, furnishings,
Internet access and cell phoffe
coverage.
"We have to continue to
push our concerns at the high-
est level and you can't get
higher than the Cabinet office
of the country and the prime
minister," Commonwealth
Games Federation chief exec-
utive Mike Hooper told The
Associated Press. "They have
to come up with a clear plan
to meet the needs of athletes
and show they can provide
consistent standards."
The games have historical-
ly been dominated by Eng-
land, Australia and Canada,
and all three have voiced con-
cerns about the conditions in


India.
"It's hard to cancel.an event
of this magnitude, but we are
close to the wire, and teams
may start to take things into
their own hands," England
chef de mission Craig Hunter
told Britain's Press Associa-
tion. "Athletes will start get-
ting on planes soon and deci-
sions will have to be made.
We need new levels of reas-
surance."
Australian discus world
champion Dani Samuels and
England's triple jump world
champion Phillips Odowu
both withdrew' from the
games Tuesday, citing con-
cerns over health and security.
SAustralia's federal sports
minister Mark Arbib, who is
due to travel to New Delhi
next week, told Sky News on
Wednesday that "there could
be a number more who made
that decision," to follow
Samuels' lead and withdraw
from the games.
Scotland said its team's liv-
ing area was "unsafe and unfit
for human habitation." Aus-
tralia's chef de mission,
,retired marathon runner
Steve Moneghetti, said Indian
organizers "have got two days
to do what's probably going
to take about two weeks."
Commonwealth Games
Canada director of sport Scott
Stevenson said housing facili-
ties were not "anything like
what was promised."
Although no one has said
they will pull out, New
Zealand team manager Dave
Currie had some of the
strongest words for organis-,
ers.
"If the village is not ready
and athletes can't come, obvi-
ously the implications of that
are that (the event) is not
going to happen," Currie told
New Zealand radio network
newstalkZB.
The chaos has severely
dented India's hopes of using
the games as a springboard
for a bid to host the Olympics
in 2020 or 2024.
The International Olympic
Committee carries out more
rigorous and frequent inspec-
tions of host cities to make
sure that construction dead-
lines are met. The process has
been tightened further since
the delays that dogged prepa-
rations for the 2004 Athens
Olympics.
The games in India are only
the third to be staged outside
Britain, Canada, Australia
and New Zealand. Kingston,


Jamaica held the 1966 edition,
then known as the British
Empire and Commonwealth
Games, and Kuala Lumpur,
Malaysia, was the only Asian
city to host the-event in 1998.
New Delhi, India's capital
and home to more than 12'
million people, was chosen to
host the -19th edition of the
Commonwealth Games in
November 2003, beating out
Hamilton, Ontario. Between
then and 2008, the country
did little to prepare.
Organising committee sec-
retary general Lalit Bhanot
said the situation at the vil-
lage was normal. .
"All games face such prob-


lems and they will be resolved
before the athletes come in,"
Bhanot said. "These are not
going to affect the games in
any way as all venues are
ready to. host the games."
Even Hooper called the
problems "fixable."
He said he would not spec-
ulate on whether the games
would take place, adding:
"The games start on the third
of October and everything
that has to be done must be
done."'
Hooper said newspaper
reports of human excrement
,around the village were true.
The BBC, the games' biggest
and most influential broad-


caster, has detailed the .trou-
bles on its website and called
the state of the village "shock-
ing."
"This is a very serious mat-
ter and it needs the attention
of the government of India to
deploy whatever resources
are necessary to fix and
address it," Hooper said. "A
massive deep clean is required
and it needs to be done."
Aside from the bridge col-
lapse and the unfinished con-
struction, the buildup to the
games has been plagued by
poor ticket sales and mon-
soons. Organisers said last
month that only 50,000 tickets
had been sold, out of 2.3 mil-


lion available.
Two weeks ago, the Indian
capital was hit by an outbreak
of dengue fever, and heavy
rains have contributed both
to the problem of the mos-
quito-borne virus and floods.
Although the government
played down the threat of
dengue fever, doctors in New
Delhi's private clinics said
they were inundated with
dengue patients and accused
the government of vastly
understating the situation.
The stagnant water of the
Yamuna River next to the
athletes' village certainly has-
n't quelled fears of infection
for visiting teams.

Of a humble and godly man
Who taught the importance of living for Christ
Speaking wisdom for all to understand
To some of us he \ as "grandpa"
Speaking in his soft but firm. loving tone
To others lie \\ as simply "-daddy"
Who pro\ ided for his house and home.
To a wife and mother lie was just "Bill

Honoring the commitments that he made
Not just speaking of love. but li\ ing it.

Ministry official: education system

should 'inspire' young people


By NOELLE NICOLLS
Tribune Staff Reporter
nnicolls@tribunemedia.net
MINISTRY of Education
officials say they do not want
to see a proliferation of "reac-
tionary programmes" to deal
with juvenile delinquency.
Olly Mae Knowles, assistant
deputy director of education,
said theie will always be oppor-
tunities for remedial pro-"
grammes, but it is important
that the education system
"inspire" young people through
an "up-front" approach.
"What schools need to do,
and other agencies, is look at
how they can develop the learn-
ing potential of those students.
Underlying most behavioral
problems is a connection with
something the person feels they
are not doing well. They use
behaviour to disguise the true
problem," said Mrs Knowles.
She said the Ministry of Edu-
cation works with a number of
alternative education pro-


grammes (AEPs) for students
who display "unacceptable
behaviour" or cause "serious
disruptions" in class.
Programme SURE (Success
Ultimately Reassures Every-
one) and TAPS (Transitional
Alternative Programme for Stu-
dents) are two of the Ministry's
main AEPs. /
Mrs Knowles said they also
work with Urban Renewal,
church groups, the Hope Centre
Ministries and the national
Leadership, Esteem, Ability,
Discipline (LEAD) institute, as
well as others.
"Rather than going 'and
building more boys' (reform)
schools, we need to begin to
look more accurately at the
questions: Are we diagnosing
our children properly to under-
stand what is happening in their
social life?' Academically, are
they connecting with what is
being taught in the schools?
"We are living in a time when
children must see the connec-
tion between what is being


Increase in special needs students

at Sir Gerald Cash Primary School
THE MINISTRY of Education noted '
recently an increase in the number of special
needs students who have enrolled at the Sir
Gerald Cash Primary School. -
As a result, the ministry said that it has tak-
en steps to improve the state of the facilities
that are provided for tiese students.
In a statement issued to the press yesterday,
the ministry said that it has provided a trailer
to the school grounds in order to accommo-
date other students. However, the ministry
noted, some media reports have suggested
that this trailer was intended for the use of
special needs students. MINISTER OF
"These allegations are incorrect and untrue," MINISTER E OF
the statement read. EDUCATION:
"Just last week Desmond Bannister, Minis- Desmond Bannister
ter of Education, advised parents and admin-
istrators at the school that the special hleeds children would be
accommodated by combining the special needs classroom with
another classroom which was previously used for Spanish lessons.
"The minister has indicated that his position on .the matter
remains unchanged, and accordingly, parents may be comforted by
the knowledge that the trailer will not be used for the accomm.o-
dation of special needs students," the statement read.


taught to them and what they
feel they need to know," said
Mrs Knowles. .
"It is like saying we should
build more prisons because
there will probably be more
children going to prisons.
"Why not put more energy
into preventing children from
going to prison? Let's get our
children to be critical thinkers,"
she said.
Some youth workers say a
preventative approach should
be a major part of the solution,
and they believe a "paradigm
shift" in the education system
is needed for that to happen.
Troy Clarke, president of the
national LEAD institute, said
the solution has to encompass
much more than "teachers
teaching properly".

Delinquency
"It is the education system
itself. Because-of the inadequa-
cies, the education system itself
is contributing to an increase in
juvenile delinquency, the pro-
liferation of at-risk behaviour,
the increase in criminal activities
by youth in our country," said
Mr Clarke.
He said a "zero tolerance"
approach by schools is under-
standable, but "you still have to
provide an alternative to those
set of students who may be hav-
ing challenges as it relates to
being at-risk in the school sys-
tem, whether they are at-risk
academically or behaviorally,"
he said.
Pastor Carlos Reid, head pas-
tor at the Hope Centre, said
despite how much he speaks
about the influence of gangs in
schools, he believes youth vio-
lence is really about an "identi-
ty" crisis, stemming from what
'children are taught in school.
He said education has to be
made relevant to the times and
the needs of people.
"Most of the fights is because
someone disses you. If you
realise that what another per-
son says about you doesn't have
to become your reality, then it
wouldn't matter. (The educa-
tion system should) make us
'feel good about ourselves so we
don't think the only way we
have to get our two minutes of
fame is doing the bunny hop
down Bank Lane," said Pastor
Reid, ..
In the meantime, Pastir Reid
said, "reactive programmes that
deal with intervention" are
essential because the problems

Jets CB Revis out for Dolphins game


By DENNIS WASZAK Jr
AP Sports Writer I
FLORHAM PARK, N.J.
(AP) Revis Island will be
deserted for at least one
game.
New York Jets cornerback
Darrelle Revis will not play
against the Miami Dolphins
(2-0) on Sunday night because
of his strained left hamstring.
"I want to be out there with
them, but I can't;" Revis said
Wednesday. "I'm just going
to take my time and get back
to 100 per cent."
Revis did not practice, and
coach Rex Ryan said the All-
Pro would not even travel
with the Jets (1-1) to Miami.
Instead, he will stay back at


the team's facility to receive
further treatment on the ham-
string.
"He's itching to get back,"
Ryan said, "but it's too risky
of a proposition to put him
out there.'
Revis said he's getting pro-
gressively better each day, but
he and the team decided he
would not be ready in time
to play Sunday.
Linebacker Calvin Pace
'will also not play against the
Dolphins after missing the
first two games of the regular,
season wi':h a broken right
foot.
All-Pro center Nick Man-
gold (right shoulder) and
backup offensive lineman
Wayne Hunter (shin) spent


practice on the stationary
bikes, but Ryan expects them
to play. Linebacker Jason
Taylor was limited while
wearing a brace on his injured
left elbow, but is also expect-
ed to play against his former
team.
Revis was limited in prac-
tice last week with tightness in
the hamstring, but said he felt
completely healthy heading
into the game against New
England on Sunday.
He immediately grabbed at
his leg after Randy Moss
made a spectacular, one-
handed 34-yard touchdown
catch in front of him with 53
seconds left in the first half
of New York's 28-14 win.
Revis was examined on the


sideline, and then taken to
the locker room for treat-
ment. He didn't return and
watched the second half in
the trainer's room.
On Monday, Revis would
not rule himself out for the
Miami game, but acknowl-
edged that it could take him a
week or two to heal. He said
it would be the first game he
has ever missed at any level.
"I'm just relaxed," he said.
"I'm dealing with the ham-
string thing right now. There's
no point in getting emotions
in it. I'll just root my team on
and watch them win."
Revis pulled the same ham-
string last summer and missed
two preseason games, and has
said that injury was worse. So,

TACKLE: Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis (right) tackles Patriots wide
receiver Wes Welker in Sunday's game. Revis left the game later in the


second quarter.

he knows it was smart for him
to sit out the second half
against New England as well
as h1is v. -k.
"I know from previous
hamstrings that if I continued
to play that game, it. proba-
bly would have gotten
w( .a," evis said. "Then, I
probably would've been out
way more weeks than I could
be coming up."
Revis missed all of training
camp while holding out for
36 days in a contract dispute,
and acknowledged last week
that it likely played a role in
the injury.
With Revis out, Antonio
Croniartie will move across
the field and step into his spot
while rookie Kyle Wilson
draws the other starting

assignment.
"I'm sure Cro's probably
going to get a pick this week-
end," Revis said with a laugh.
Cromartie, who shut down
Moss after Revis went out,
will primarily be matched up
with Brandon Marshall on
Sunday. The two went up
against each other several
times in recent seasons when
Cromartie was in San Diego
and Marshall was in Denver.
Cromartie was also part of a
Chargers secondary that gave
up 18 catches by Marshall in
2008.
"I'm definitely looking for-
ward to that matchup," Cro-
martie said. "It's my ninth
time facing him, so we know
each other well. I'm just look-
ing forward to the challenge."


ALLEN PARK, Michigan (AP) Detroit Lions coach
Jim Schwartz says quarterback Shaun Hill will start at Mmn-
nesota on Sunday.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford did not practice Wednes-
day. Schwartz says Stafford is doing well with his rebabili-
tation,. but the coach and player haven't said what the
timetable is for his return.
The No. I pick in the 2009 NFL draft injured his right
shoulder in the season-opening loss at Chicago and missed
Week 2 against Philadelphia. He missed six games last year
with an injured left shoulder and right knee.
Hwill i completed 53 per cent of his passes for 423 yards
with two touchdowns and three interceptions in two games
this season.

BEIJING (AP) An offi-
cial in southern China says
flooding and landslides from
Typhoon Fanapi have killed
13 people and left at least 33
missing.
The typhoon hit Guang-
dong province after making a
direct hit on the island of Tai-
wan on Sunday and killing
two there.
China's national meteoro-
logical center says Fanapi is
the strongest typhoon to hit
China this year.


An official with Guang-
dong's flood, drought and
wind control department says
13 are dead after landslides
and flooding.
The state-run Xinhua News
Agency says the dead include
five people killed when a dam
at a tin mine in Xinyi city was
hit by a landslide and col-
lapsed.
Heavy rain is forecast for
central and western parts of
Guangdong through Thurs-
day morning.

Al- Qaida claims


kidnapping of 5


French in Niger


By JAMEY KEATEN
Associated Press Writer
PARIS (AP) Al-Qaida's
North Africa branch has
claimed responsibility for kid-
napping five French nationals
near a uranium mine deep in
the desert of the African
nation of Niger, according to
an audio message broadcast.
In. Tuesday's recording
broadcast by the Arabic news
channel al-Jazeera, a voice
claiming to represent al-Qai-
da in the Islamic Maghreb
said the group would issue its
demands to the French gov-
ernment shortly. ,
France's Foreign Ministry
said it could not immediately
comment on the purported
claim by AQIM, which has
been active in the Sahara and
the arid Sahel region and has
been increasingly targeting
French interests.
The claim came hours after
Niger's government
spokesman, Mahamane
Laouali Dan Dah, said the
hostages also including a
citizen of Togo and another
from Madagascar were still
alive. He didn't say what that
information was based on.
The audio message did not
mention the two African
hostages.
All seven, who worked at a
huge uranium mine in north-
ern Niger run by French
state-owned nuclear power
giant Areva, were abducted
Thursday by armed -men.
France and Niger have said
they suspected AQIM in the
kidnapping in Niger, a for-
mer French colony in north-
west Africa.
In the recording, the group
claimed it "overcame securi-
ty forces in the area and cap-
tured. five French nuclear
experts," and said it would
"shortly" issue its demands
to French authorities.
"We also warn them from
doing anything stupid," it
added. France has deployed,
at least two military recon-
naissance jets to Niger in the
search for the hostages.
There was no way to
authenticate the message, but
in the past al-Qaida and its
affiliates have claimed
responsibility Jfor operations.
through messages sent to Al-
Jazeera.
Last week, the French Sen-
ate voted to ban burqa-style
Islamic veils in France, a sub-
ject that has prompted warn-
ings by AQIM. Counterter-
rorism officials in France say


the ban is'just one of several
factors that have made
France a target of the group.
The excerpts broadcast by al-
Jazeera made no mention of,
the ban.
French authorities believe
the hostage-takers, who oper-
ate in a remote area with
porous borders, have brought
the seven captives to a zone
in northeastern Mali,.a top
French diplomatic official
told The Associated Press.
' The French interior minis-
ter was heading to Mali on
Tuesday.
Niger and Mali are both
former French colonies, and
French Interior Minister
Brice Hortefeux's office said
his trip was part of the cele-
brations around Mali's 50-
year anniversary bfindepen-
dence. A ministry spokes-
woman said Hortefeux
planned to discuss the
hostage-taking with Mali's
president.
Areva, which gets about
one-third of its uranium in
Niger, has acknowledged that
security "breakdowns" exist-
ed before the abductions. On
Tuesday, Areva confirmed it
had received a letter from an
official in Niger on Septem-
ber 1 warning the company
of intelligence about a plot to
abduct foreigners and confis-
cate military materials in the
area.
The letter also said defense
forces had returned fire on
an armed group's convoy in
the area. "You understand
that in these conditions the
threat of AQIM must-be tak-
en seriously," said the letter,
which was printed in full on
the Web site of Le Monde
newspaper.
Areva said in a statement
that the letter was part of its
regular, contacts with Niger
officials, and that the compa-
ny's deputy for security had
visited the region for a week
starting September 7 to meet
with Niger officials, who
offered "no particular infor-
mation" about a threat.
A manwho worked for
Areva and his wife were
among those kidnapped near
the Niger mining town of
Arlit. The other five work for
a subcontractor called Satom.
Al-Qaida in the Islamic
Maghreb, or North Africa, is
an affiliate of Osama bin
Laden's group. It grew out of
an Islamist insurgency move-
ment in Algeria, merging with
al-Qaida in 2006 and spread-
ing through the region.

Official opening of the George




T. Smith Preparatory School


By ALESHA CADET
Tribune Features Writer

TNDER the motto "Moving
Forward In Faith, Leaving
No Child Behind", the new
George T Smith Preparatory
school officially opened on
Monday, September 6.
The mission of George T Smith
Preparatory School is to: train young peo-
ple academically, spiritually, socially and
physically and to equip them with the
necessary. tools that would produce
viable, matured, responsible, Christian
leaders in the home, work-place and the
community. The school will operate
under the objective of providing quality
education from a Christian perspective.
The goals for the school are to extract
and enhance their God given gifts and
talents that would serve as a springboard
in becoming practical, polished, produc-
tive, and peaceful citizens of the
Bahamas.
Reverend Patrick Smith. pastor .of the
Evangelic: Asembly Church, Blue }1ill
Road & e giS4tettoSd4 Tribune,
Religion thit In the wake of the accelera-


tion of crime among our youth and the
low academic achievement as seen mani-
fested in the National grade point aver-
age, "I have been moved to take a leap
of faith in establishing the George T
Smith Preparatory school, cultivating a
new path in academic excellence."
Pastor Smith expressed that the
Evangelic Assembly Church is in the
heart of Bain and Grants town. For the
past ten years, I have served as the exec-
utive secretary of the Bahamas National
Baptist Missionary and Educational
Convention which ended in May of this
year," he said.
I was led to name the school after my
grand-father George Trevor Smith, who
himself had a 53 year teaching span with
the Ministry of Education. He pioneered
on several family Islands as
'Headmaster."
He explained he firmly believes that all
children have the ability to learn.
All of them have the capacity to pro-
duce. It only takes a real teacher, some-
one who has the student's best interest at
heart to draw out of that child what God
has already placed within At George T'
Smith Preparatory.Schooliwe will seek to
accomplish just that."


The doors of George T Smith
Preparatory school was official opened
on Monday, September 6,2010 at 8:15am.
sharp with 32 students ranging from
Kindergarten straight though the ninth
grade.
The fees are affordable and are said to
be designed with hard working parents in
mind.
Some children need a smaller, more
personal setting, an opportunity to have
a one on one situation. We offer a per-
,sonal touch with smaller classes in a safe,
Christian environment. We want to
develop the whole man per se, academic
as well as spiritual," Pastor Smith said.
The purpose statement for the school
is "Laying a firm foundation for whole-
some development toward Vision,
Integrity, Structure and
Accountability:"" This is a non profit,
faith based institution and we dare to
impact as many lives as possible," he
said.
Pastor Smith continued: Just this
Monday past, Sept. 20, 2010, We held the
official opening ceremony where veteran
!educator 'ahd national icon" Rev'd Dr-
'Charles :-WSauriders; -gave the charge.'

enforcing a requirement that Grand
Bahama Port Authority (GBPA)
licencees, who sold goods bonded to other
licencees, submit reports on such 'over-
the-counter' sales to it by the 15th of each
subsequent month.
Tribune Business reported last week
that there was no requirement, either in
statute, policy or a written understanding,
for GBPA licencees to submit over-the-
counter bonded goods sales reports, and
Mr Turnquest admitted that the Freeport
private sector was "very concerned" about
its relationship with Customs.
"I know that there has been an official
request for these [over-the-counter]
reports," the Grand Bahama Chamber pres-
ident told Tribune Business. "I wrote to
Customs on behalf of a particular member of
the Chamber last week, asking them to clar-
ify their position. They have come back to
say this is not a new policy, it is an existing
policy they are seeking to enforce."
Mr Turnquest added that he was meet-
ing with Customs today to "talk through
this policy". He said: "We need to talk about
what the policy has been, and what the pol-
icy is that they seek to enforce."
The Grand Bahama Chamber chief said
he was concerned about the uncertainty
arbitrary changes in Customs' policy could
create, harming the business environment
and discouraging commerce and foreign
direct investment in Freeport,
"Obviously, we're very concerned with
the relationship we have with Customs,"
Mr Turnquest said. "We operate here with
certain assumptions and certain under-
standings [undei the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement], and it seems that every now
and then Customs will enforce an arbitrary
rule or different rule,-which does not give
certainty to business.
"Where you have uncertainty, you will
have investors and businesspeople not
knowing how to conduct themselves day-
to-day.
"We have issues with the way Customs
operates and conducts itself. We need clar-
ification of what the rules are, what the
requirements are going to be, what's going
to be enforced,.so that everyone knows
t.pfroht what the rules are. We can't be
going back and forth where Customs or an
element of it says one thing, another part
says another, and we do not know whether
we're coming or going."

Reasonable
Mr Turnquest added: "We understand
Customs' role to.collect revenue, but they
must be reasonable." He added that under
the Hawksbill Creek Agreement "all the
benefits accrue to the licencees, and they
[Customs] must respect that".
Tribune Business has subsequently been
told that Customs has warned several GBPA
licencees, orally and via handwritten notes,
that unless over-the-counter bonded goods
sales reports are submitted, their trailers
will not be cleared. Mr Turnquest, though,
said he had no knowledge of such develop-
ments.
The Grand Bahama Chamber president's
position was backed by noted Freeport-
based attorney Fred Smith QC, the Callen-
ders & Co attorney and partner, who told
Tribune Business that it was "unbelievable"


Chamber chief: MSCs 146 per cent

tainers from the Freeport
Container Port. This
monopoly, speculation had
it, would control both the
movement of containers
from the port to the staging
area, and then the final
delivery to the end-cus-
tomer.
No one has previously
named the supposed
monopoly provider of
MSC's trucking services, but
multiple sources in Freeport
identified it to Tribune Busi-
ness as Freeport Ship Ser-
vices, a company headed by
Jeremy Cafferata, son of
attorney Chris Cafferata.
"From the Freeport Ship
Services point of view,
they've been trying to get
some sort of exclusive," one
source said. "This has been
happening for six months at
least."
Mr Turnquest, mean-
while, said that while he had
no direct information, he
had "heard" from other par-
ties about Freeport Ship
Services' interest in estab-
lishing an exclusive rela-
tionship with MSC.
Manuel Ruiz, MSC
(Bahamas) general manag-
er, has not returned Tribune


Business's calls seeking com-
ment, but information
reaching this newspaper sug-
gests that fears about a
'trucking monopoly' may be
misplaced.
Kevin Bethel, of Bethel's
Trucking Company, said the
notice he received from
MSC only stated that there
would be an increase in the
Freeport destination charge,
and it was going to include
trucking.
George Williams, of
Freeport Transfer Compa-
ny, added: "MSC has been
experiencing a lot of dam-
age to their containers and
they are trying to limit the
amount of people that can
truck their containers.

Independent
"There are a number of
independent drivers...and
they are doing a lot of dam-
age to the containers. The
port is open to everybody
and MSC is trying to regu-
late and limit the amount of
people that can truck their
containers.
Mr Turnquest, mean-
while, urged both MSC and
the Grand Bahama trucking
companies to come to a
negotiated solution for all
concerned.


"We're for free enterprise,
and believe Bahamians have
a right to conduct business,
just as MSC has a right to
protect its equipmentn" the
Grand Bahama Chamber of
Commerce's president said.
"There has got to be a way
to work out a deal in a fair
' and equitable way, whether
the truckers post a bond or
insurance requirement.
Whatever accommodation
has to be made, reasonable
people come up with rea-
sonable solutions."
Another source said they
understood that under the
new policy, the client would
pay the delivery charge for
their container direct to
MSC, which would then
contract the trucking com-
pany.
"MSC is simply trying to
make money off the truck-
ing by charging for the ship-
ping," the source said.
adding that it wanted to
ensure all trucking compa-
nies had posted the required
indemnity insurance and
bonds, and that they had
"the correct chassis used to
haul the containers".
In other words, MSC is
looking for all trucking com-
panies that haul its contain-
ers to meet certain standards
and criteria.


We have issues with the
way Customs operates
and conducts itself. We need
clarification of what the rules
are, what the requirements
are going to be, what's going
to be enforced, so that every-
one knows upfront what the
rules are."

that Customs would attempt to interfere
with business in Freeport given the city's
weak economy.
A veteran of several Supreme Court vic-
tories over Customs in relation to the
Hawksbill Creek Agreement, Mr Smith
added: "This is Groundhog Day for Cus-
toms. Every few years, Customs gets a bee in
its bonnet, and tries to impose 'arbitrary
solutions.
"It is unbelievable to me that in the cur-
rent state of Freeport's economy, Customs
would do anything which would interfere
with commerce."
Mr Smith echoed calls by Christopher
Lowe, the former Grand Bahama Cham-
ber of Commerce, for Customs to engage in
dialogue with the GBPA, Grand Bahama
Chamber of Commerce and the licencees, in
a bid to arrive at a solution that satisfied its
revenue needs while also protecting all rights
under the Hawksbill Creek Agreement.
Calling on the licencees to unite and form
an organisation dedicated to advancing their
interests, Mr Smith added: "It is regrettable
that half a century after the Hawksbill Creek
Agreement has been in operation in
Freeport, that there is still no unified
licencee organisation which could meet with
Customs and develop a sensible and work-
able protocol on the over-the-counter bond-
ed goods sales.
"We have another 44 years in Freeport,
and I certainly encourage the Ministry of
Finance, the Chamber of Commerce, the
Port Authority and the licencees to get
together and come up with a workable pro-
tocol.
"This continued knee-jerk reaction by
,Customs, or draconian demands for reports,
are inappropriate in an economy' such as
Freeport's, where there is a need for co-
operation by all parties in this great Freeport
enterprise.
"If we don't continue to work together, we
will continue to shoot ourselves in the foot,
continue to stagnate, and continue to fight.
It is in everyone's interest to work together
on Customs issues. I encourage the Port
Authority to take the lead role in this mat-
ter, and avoid unnecessary conflict.and busi-
ness delays in Freeport."
Adding that there was "no crisis", Mr
Smith told Tribune Business said that
instead of sending. out alarmist, threaten-
ing notices, "which only serve to heighten
anxiety and create stress and uncertainty",
Customs needed to take a conciliatory
approach.
"Why must everything be resolved by cri-
sis management and/or litigation/" he asked.
,"I have been a licencee and been dealing
with Customs issues in Freeport for decades.
I really do encourage all of us who are part-
ners in this Freeport venture, this magic
city, to try and work this out."

GOVT ‘TO PRIORITISE ZNS
UPGRADES’ IN NEXT BUDGET

By NOELLE NICOLLS

THE government plans.to prioritise
much needed upgrades to the capital infra-
structure at ZNS in the upcoming budget,
said Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham, in
the House of Assembly yesterday.

Mr Ingraham did not reveal the figure
the government intends to allocate, but he
said money will be set aside to advance
the digitisation process.

He said the capital injection will be addi-
tional to the $4.3 million that will go
towards financing the recent separation

‘ package and operational expenses.

Late last year, the Broadcasting Corpo-
ration of the Bahamas laid off 80 workers
in a downsizing exercise. In October, Prime
Minister Ingraham said the government
would have to invest between $1.5 to $2
million to upgrade the facilities at the BCB

Police search for company to [0

provide closed circuit television

By AVA TURNQUEST
Tribune Staff Reporter
aturnquest@tribunemedia.net

THE SEARCH for a company to
provide closed circuit television in
New Providence has commenced.

The Royal Bahamas Police Force
issued a request for qualifications
(RFQ) tender for phase one of their
CCTV solution for the capital yes-
‘terday.

The public notice invited interest-
ed persons to download the docu-
ment from the Bahamas government
website or.,;www.royalbahamaspo-
lice.org: Copies of the RFQ are also
available at the Police Training Col-
lege.

An integrated network of CCTV
cameras was slated to start this year
to monitor the streets of Nassau;
part of a new initiative to assist
police in the fight against crime.

Plans formulated by the National
CCTV Steering Committee with
guidance from American consul-
tants Hudson Sterling LLC are
expected to be implemented later
this year as 85 cameras'across New
Providence are linked by a national
control centre. :

Stakeholders representing private
enterprises, government depart-

ments and sections of the police |

force gathered to discuss plans in
December.
At that time, committee mem-

bers said that existing CCTV sys-
tems in Cable Beach, Woodes
Rogers Walk in downtown Nassau,
in the East Street South police dis-
trict, and Cable Bahamas offices
have already greatly assisted police
efforts.

By extending CCTV into high
crime areas in inner-city Nassau,
and throughout the busy business
areas and tourist hubs, the public-
private partnership hopes to crack-.
down on crime in Nassau and across
the Bahamas.

The completed proposal — along
with three copies — must be placed
in sealed envelopes marked
“Request for Qualifications for the
Closed Circuit Television Solution”

and deposited in the Tender’s Box
at the Ministry of Finance, Cecil
Wallace-Whitfield Building, West
Bay Street.

Documents should be submitted
no later than 9.30am on Tuesday,
March 22. A tender opening will be
held at 10am at the Ministry of
Finance.

The Bahamas’ first police-moni-
tored Closed Circuit Television Sys-
tem was launched in December
2009 at the Southeastern Police
Division of New Providence. °

The system's value was said to be
its ability to deter criminal activity,
and assist in evidence collection,
convictions and police response to
criminal activity.

be installed in New Providence.

ments acknowledged by Act-
ing Minister of Foreign Affairs

~ and Minister of National Secu-

farewell reception for the
ambassador of Brazil.

The reception for Tomas
Mauricio Guggenheim,
Ambassador of Federative
Republic of Brazil, was held in
Lower Gardens of the Min-
istry ‘of Foreign Affairs, East
Hill Street last week.

“The tangible results of the
strengthened © relations
between our countries during
your tour of duty are worthy
of note,” Mr Turnquest said.

“Weare solidly advancing
the roadmap of technical assis-
tance agreements discussed,
having already agreed provi-
sionally to those for agricul-
ture and education, with those
for health and tourism under
active review,” Mr Turnquest

~ said.

Other success are the con-
clusion of a Visa Abolition
Agreement for holders of

diplomatic and official pass- -

itors especially by cruise ship,
and an examination of the
potential for mutual benefits

in the financial services sec-

tor.
Ambassador Guggenheim

took up his post in 2006 as ©

Brazil’s first Resident Ambas-
sador in the Bahamas; diplo-
matic relations were first
established in 1976.

“Your tour of duty in the
Bahamas has marked the
beginning of a new and flour-
ishing era in the relations
between our two states, as
well as between your country
and the entire Caribbean
region,” Mr Turnquest said.

Brazil is widely recognised
in international affairs. It is
the largest country in Latin

America and is said to be a |
leading emerging economy

and the probable first choice
from this hemisphere for a
Permanent Seat on the United
Nations.Security Council.
Mr Turnquest also recog-
nised Brazil for playing a vital

Press Attaché
Embassy of The Bahamas

WASHINGTON, DC -
Stringent new import regula-
tions in the United States could
affect the
Bahamas’ multi-million dollar

marine export sector, US

Ambassador CA Smith said.
The ambassador attended:a
US Food and Drug Adminis-

: tration (FDA) Office of Inter-

national Programmes special
briefing on the Food Safety
Modernisation Act (FSMA),

signed into law by President .

Barack Obama in 2010.

The purpose of the briefing
was to share information about
the provisions and implemen-
tation of the new law, which
has — according to, one official —
200 pages of provisions and 50
distinct “deliverables.” The law
is expected to be a challenge to
implement, and portions of it
have potentially major implica-
tions for the importation of
food into the United States.

After the briefing, Ambas-
sador Smith noted that the new
regulations were certain to have
an impact on the Bahamas
marine export sector.

In 2008, the Bahamas export-
ed about 2,400 tonnes of fish
(just over half the number of

fish produced that year) at a-

value of over $80 million. There
were 11 fish processors and 18
fish exporters at the end of
2008. The new regulations will
no doubt have a pronounced

affect on this important indus- .

try.
FDA official Michael Taylor
noted that the FSMA is the first



significant update of food safe-
ty legislation in 70 years. He
summarised the aim of the new
law as an attempt to minimise
risks in the US food supply, and
framed the provisions of the
law as an attempt to enforce
standards for the prevention of
food-borne illnesses.

Deputy Commissioner for

‘Foods Steven Solomon focused

on how the law goes about risk
reduction.

He pointed out that the new
law requires the FDA to
inspect 600 foreign facilities in

- 2011, and double that number

next year.
The FSMA also gives the

_FDA new authority: food from

a facility that declined FDA
inspection can now be refused
admission into the US.

Other new powers include
the authority to mandate recall
‘of contaminated foods if no vol-
untary recall is issued (com-
plainants have two days within
which to request a hearing on a
recall) and increased registra-
tion requirements, particularly
re-registration, which will only
be completed upon compliance:
with FDA inspection require-
ments. :

Dr Daniel McChesney, direc-
tor of the Office of Surveillance
and Compliance in the Centre
for Veterinary Medicine, talked
about the new focus on pre-
ventive controls, which include
a ramped up set of standards
‘for documentation of hazards
and hazard mitigation. He said
the FDA will institute a foreign
supplier verification pro-
gramme to ensure parity of pro-
tection: inspection and certifi-
cation will be part of this pro-
gramme.

ee was previously treated
for TB.

In 2008, health officials
conducted TB screenings
of shipyard employees
after three expatriate
workers were diagnosed
with the bacterial disease.

Following the incident,
the Ministry of Health put
certain protocols and
requirements in place
regarding the screening
process of employees com-
ing to work at the GB
Shipyard that would
ensure they are tested by
local health professionals
before starting work.

“I want to set the record
straight that there are no
new cases of TB at the
shipyard. This one individ-
ual who works at the ship-
yard, who is known to us,
has subsequently showed
evidence of TB,” Dr Min-
nis told a local newspaper.
He noted that the indi-




medication, which may
have caused the infection
to return.

The minister said the
infected worker has under-
gone all the necessary
screenings and health offi-
cials have met with ship-.
yard personnel and union
officials on the matter. ©

Mervin Wright, presi-
dent of Grand Bahama

yesterday that the union is,
satisfied the matter is being |
properly addressed.

“We met with the Minis-
ter of Health and his team

“I am satisfied that they

“A committee of health

- Convicted murderer
expected hack in
Court today for

sentencing hearing

A MAN convicted of

murdering his former girl-
: friend, whose body was

found inside a grave in the
Bahamas Veteran's Ceme-
tery, is expected back in
court today for his sentenc-
ing hearing.

Angelo Poitier, 24, was
convicted last October of
the murder of Shanice
Adderley, 19.

The young woman's
body was discovered inside
a grave in the Bahamas
Veteran's Cemetery on
Infant View Road on May
27.

Autopsy

According to an autopsy
report, Ms Adderley died
as a result of blunt force
trauma to the body.

Poitier denied killing
Adderley in an unsworn
statement from the prison-
er's dock.

He claimed that he had
unwillingly signed a con-
fession statement over
fears that police would '
brutalise him.

Attorney Terrell Butler
represents Poitier.

US, Europe intensify bid to isolate Gadhafi

WASHINGTON — The United States and
European allies intensified efforts to isolate
Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi on Monday,
redoubling demands for him to step down,
questioning his mental state and warning that
those who stay loyal to him risk losing their
wealth and being prosecuted for human rights
abuses.

Europe, which buys most of Libya's oil
exports, outlined fresh sanctions to force the
dictator'to stop attacks on civilians and step

down after 42 years of iron-fisted rule. The |

European Union issued travel bans and an
asset freeze against senior Libyan officials, and
ordered an arms embargo on the country.

Germany proposed a 60-day economic
embargo to prevent Gadhafi from using oil
and other revenues to repress his people.

The EU has much more leverage over Libya
than the United States since Europe’ buys 85

per cent of Libyan oil exports and Gadhafi-

and his family are thought to have significant
assets in Britain, Switzerland and Italy. Switzer-
land and Britain already. have frozen Libyan
assets. The travel and financial sanctions are
aimed at peeling away loyalists from Gadhafi in
the hope of further isolating him.

"These sanctions and accountability mech-
anisms should make all members of the Libyan

regime think about the choice they have before.

-them: violate human rights and be held
accountable or stop the violence and respect
‘the Libyan people's call for change," U.S.
Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice
told reporters following crisis meetings on

Libya at the White House. "There's no escap-

ing that critical choice."

As the Pentagon moved naval and air forces
closer to Libya amid active international dis-
cussions about imposing a no-fly zone over the
country, the U.S. Treasury Department
announced it had frozen at least $30 billion in
Libyan assets since President Barack Obama
imposed financial and travel sanctions on Gad-
hafi, his family, senior Libyan officials and the
government last week. That figure is the largest
amount of money ever frozen by a USS. sanc-
tions order, which also set out travel bans for

the Libyan leadership. Administration offi-

cials said that as long as the government con-
tinues its violent crackdown against opponents
who now control most of eastern Libya, all
options, including military ones, remain on the
table. Speaking in Geneva to the U.N. Human
Rights Council, Secretary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton said the United States and Euro-
pean nations were exploring the idea of restrict-
ing airspace to prevent Gadhafi's government
from bombing its citizens.

"Gadhafi has lost.the legitimacy to govern,
and it is time for him to go without further
violence or delay," she said.

At the Pentagon, officials said they were.
moving forces in the region in case they were

ne¢ded but did not say what they might be
used for. |

The U.S. has a regular military presence in
the Mediterranean Sea, two aircraft carriers
in the Persian Gulf area and a wide range of
surveillance equipment available for use in the
region. Without specific information about
what assets were being moved and where, it
was impossible to tell whether the U.S. moves
were intended as a military threat or were sim-
ply a symbolic show of force.

A flight ban seemed unlikely in the short
term. Senior US. officials said the issue was not
discussed during Clinton's meeting with Russ-
ian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, whose
country would have to support such a‘ move if
the U.S. and its allies wanted authorization
from the U.N. Security Council. Lavrov dis-
missed the idea in public remarks.

Even before the EU announced the new
sanctions, France pledged to send two planes
with humanitarian aid to Libya's opposition
stronghold of Benghazi after days of increasing
concern about the hundreds, and potentially
thousands, of deaths. After meetings with oth-
er nations'. foreign policy chiefs in Geneva,
Clinton said the U.S. was sending two aid teams
to help Libyan refugees. One would go to

Egypt and the other to Tunisia to deal with ,

the influx of fleeing Libyans. The U.S. has
pledged an initial $10 million to help refugees.
Gadhafi, meanwhile, in an interview with

“ABC News, dismissed the idea of leaving,

rejected the allegations that he had ordered.a
crackdown on opponents and repeated his
belief that the Libyan people love him, a claim
that was met by derision in Washington.

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley

said the U.S. ambassador to Libya, Gene Cretz, |

who has been in Washington since early Janu-
ary for consultations, had been speaking to. a
broad range of Libyan opposition figures but
declined to identify which ones.

He also said the Libyan government had

notified the administration that it had fired its
ambassador to the United States, Ali Aujali,
who last week joined the opposition, and had
replaced him with a Gadhafi loyalist.

The U.S. closed its embassy in Tripoli on
Friday after the remaining diplomats were.
evacuated but has not broken diplomatic rela-
tions with Libya. Last Monday, Aujali joined
other Libyan diplomats in calling for Gadhafi
to step down although he said he would not
resign his post as’ ambassador.

Amid the flurry of international activity,

Obama kept up his telephone diplomacy and

discussed Libya with Canadian Prime Minister

Stephen Harper. Obama expressed his appre- °

ciation for Canada's decision to impose its own
set of sanctions against the Gadhafi regu;
the White House said.

“the Rt. Hon. P. M.

I don't recall an

MP ever being
so disrespectful

EDITOR, The Tribune

I realize that I am 61 years
of age and I also realize that it
is a ripe age for Alzheimers
to start to set in on some
human beings.

However, unless I am los-
ing my memory I do not
remember any member of

. Parliament ever being so dis-

respectful that they would try
to inject their wishes on Par-

liament while a Minister of'

Finance was delivering any
type of Budget.

Wednesday, February
23rd, is. a sad day in the life of
the Bahamas for more than
one reason.

1. That is what I remem-
ber as-the first time this has
ever happened.

‘2. It is anyone's legal right
to demonstrate as long as they
have the permission to do so

. in a civil manner.

3. When demonstrators
stop demonstrating and start
to try breaking down barri-
cades it is no longer a peace-
ful demonstration.

On Friday afternoon I was
on my way to the airport and
listening to Mr. Steve McK-
inney's talk show. and I was

shocked by some of what I

heard on airwaves that just a
short time ago Bahamians did
not have the privilege of lis-

‘ tening to. How soon we forget

who made these airwaves
open for the public.

They were bad mouthing
in no
uncertain terms and blaming
him for the Police having dogs
in Parliament square on
Wednesday while the demon-
stration was taking place.

have spent the last two,
days trying to figure out why ©

they were upset because any-

one who was.in the demon- —

stration and did not.intend to
break the law had nothing to
fear from the dogs. On the

other hand the Police with.

their secret information must
have had a very good reason
to have dogs there. Remem-
ber to be forewarned and pre-

pared is the smart thing that -

anyone does. So if the Police
knew that there were going
to be criminal-minded per-
sons in the group then they

did the right thing to be pre- -

pared to protect the innocent
people who were on the other
side of the barricades.

These are very troubling
times when we have MP's get-
ting on public platforms and
deliberately trying to incite
people who are. listening, to






letters@tribunemedia.nét

take the law into their own
hands because some politi-
cians are so desperate for

- power that they do not care

who gets hurt or what gets
destroyed in this country as
long they can get this power,
all to the detriment of the
majority of Bahamians.

If the majority of Bahami-
ans were not happy about the
sale of BTC the demonstra-
tors would have no problem

_in getting support and no one

would have to bus and pay
people, to come to Bay Street.

I hear a lot being said
about Bahamians owning
BTC, but I would like any
Bahamian who is not on
BTC's payroll to tell me how
much money they have made
from BTC during the last 20
years.

However, Bahamians from
all walks of life will now have
the privilege, if they want to
buy shares, to do so and say:
“T now for the first time in my

life own a piece of BTC -

because as it stands now I do
not own anything in BTC ‘it
belongs to the Government.
of the Bahamas..- Also
through all the talk about

ames

Bluewater buying BTC, I
have never heard a single
word uttered about Bluewater
agreeing to put any shares on
the market for Bahamians to
buy so I have to assume that
whoever was behind Bluewa-
ter wanted it “all for me
baby” style and that suggests
enough to all sensible
Bahamians for them to figure
for themselves who was prob-
ably behind Bluewater’s pur-
chase attempt.

Sadly it was not so very
long ago that my good friend -
Chuck Virgil, I believe, was
the victim of words that were
uttered from the platform at a

rally.

We are all first and fore-
most Bahamians who have to
live in this country together
and we should all be proud
to be Bahamian and also we
have to be big enough to real-
ize that in any race in life
there will always be a winner

- and a loser, but this does not

mean that we have to tear
down what it has taken so
long to build up in. the
Bahamas, we all have our
children and future genera-
tions to worry about and it is
our duty from God that we
leave a better place behind

_ than what we found. .

Some union leaders have shown
extraordinary incompetence

EDITOR, The Tribune.

-It’s interesting that in the year 2011; some rerpie in our
Bahamas are still try to bring racial tensions to our country just
for political power, and to cover their incompetence. I’m refer-
ring of course to the leadership of the PLP party and to the

leaders of some of the unions.

The PLP leadership claim they don’t want BTC to be sold to
foreigners. Yet despite all their press statements, they still haven’t
told the Bahamian people who they were prepared to give BTC
away to . Who is behind Bluewater? Are the beneficiaries for-
eigners or is it simply a PLP leadership alliance? J am pretty sure
that if it is a PLP alliance the vast majority of PLP voters would
not get anything out of the deal. They never do anyway.

Some union leaders have demonstrated extraordinary levels of
stupidity, racism and incompetence. They don’t want to answer
to the white man. If this is how people feel then why work for
Atlantis, Baha Mar.or any other major company owned by:a
“white” man. If union leaders want to turn our country into a “lit-
tle Egypt”, they will soon realise they don’t have the support they
think they do. Most Bahamians aren’t prepared to let their coun-
try be destroyed just to accommodate the PLP’s political ambi-
tions and the union radars. s “fat” salaries. :

Constant Working
Pressure Hoses

The failure of the Police to properly investigate a report of
_armed robbery last August led to an innocent person being
detained at Her Majesty’s Prison for six months.

Kemir McDonald was picked up off the street after a lady (com-
plainant) pointed him out to a police officer as looking like the sus-
pect who had robbed her one week earlier. Kemir did not fit the
description of the alleged robber.

Later at the Police Station he was placed in a line-up of persons
(identification parade) bearing similar description to the robber,
and each person in the line-up was requested to repeat the words
used by the robber at the scene.

The complainant failed to identify Kemir. Kemir’s house was
searched and nothing was found to connect him to the robbery.

Kemir denied the allegation against him and gave the Police an
alibi.

He told the Police that at the time of the offence he was at his
father’s birthday party, which fortunately, was attended by some
thirty family members and friends.

The police failed to check this easily verifiable story, and he was
charged. .

On such flimsy evidence I am surprised that the Senior Police
Officer and the Director of Public Prosecutions in the office of the
Attorney General allowed this case to go to the Supreme Court.

The case was heard in the Supreme Court before judge and
jury and family members and friends were able to testify on
Kemir’s behalf.

One of the family members had taken a photograph of Kemir at
the party and the film bore the exact date and time it was taken
confirming that Kemir was nowhere in the area of the robbery. The
prosecution could not convince one juror that Kemir was the.actu-
al culprit, and the jury, after being properly instructed, returned a
unanimous verdict of not guilty. Kemir was at last freed.

‘The downside of this episode is that had the police done a prop-
er job Kemir would not have had to languish in prison for six
months.

As a former police officer, Director of Local government and
now an Attorney-at-law I wholeheartedly support the police in the
fight against crime which is overwhelming us, but I put this matter
to your readers to express my ire and that of the family in the way
Kemir’s case was handled.

Preserving the legacy
of Sir Sidney Poitier

HIS acting roles have run the
gamut from the debonair doctor
turned dinner guest to the tena-
cious FBI agent on the trail of a
. vicious killer, but Sir Sidney
Poitier’s mark of distinction
extends far beyond the trailblazing
roles he played as a black actor on
the silver screen.

A talented artist, visionary and

humanitarian, Sir Sidney’s classic

characters were once again:

brought to life last week as the
College of the Bahamas and the
School of English Studies hosted a
film festival in his honour for the
second consecutive year.

“Sir Sidney has been widely
recognised not only for his ground-
breaking contributions to the arts,
but because ‘many of his roles chal-
lenged pre-conceived notions
about race, class and socio-eco-
nomic status,” festival organisers
‘said. ‘

Appearing in more than 50 films,
Sir Sidney — who grew up in Cat
Island — set for himself standards
of performance that were viewed
as impossible for black actors at
the time. Among his most distin-
guished achievements is an Acad-
emy Award win in 1963 for his

‘lead role in the film “Lilies of the °

Field.”

Creator and organiser of the
2011 Sidney Poitier Film Festival,
Dr Ian Strachan, Associate. Pro-
fessor in the School of English
Studies, believes that the actor’s
legacy should be preserved for
future generations. \

“The festival is a key means of |

achieving that goal. Last year, the
College also hosted the Sidney
Poitier International Conference

that provided a platform for schol-

ars and film enthusiasts to explore
and debate Poitier’s achievements,
contributions and legacy,” organ-
isers said.

Dr Strachan described this year’s

festival as an opportunity for
Bahamians of various age groups
and walks of life “to share in his
legacy, a legacy, which he has left

to the entire world.”

The classic Sidney Poitier films

“A Band of
, in which Poitier starred
alongside Clarke Gable, “Porgy
and Bess”, his one film with
Dorothy Dandridge, and “The

Defiant Ones”.

According to Dr Strachan, the
film festival, which he hopes will be
an annual event, will broaden its
scope of artists and offerings in the
future.

“In future festivals, we envision
broadening the selection of films to
include works by other black and

Bahamian artists,” he said. “We

also want to continue the tradition
of hosting academic discussions
that explore cinema of the black

-experience and therefore we’re

considering hosting a bi-annual

conference. Last year’s conference ©

proved very successful.’

The College, he said,is commit-
ted to supporting the development
of the arts and facilitating experi-
ences for intellectual and cultural
exploration and empowerment. As

it continues to develop academic °
programmes in response to nation- -

al needs, the institution recently

container ship M/V

‘ sion in the dark to.search

drugs.
The seven members of the

U.S. Immigration and Cus- -

team, formed in 2004 and

the only one of its kind in ©

the U.S., were searching for
large metal boxes that Latin
American cocaine traffick-
ers sometimes weld or
clamp onto freighters and

even cruise ships to smug-.

gle drugs. The boxes also

could be used to hide ter-

Once in the U.S., the box-

es can be opened by divers:

are detached and later
opened at another location.
The so-called parasitic

taining bricks of cocaine and

‘other illegal drugs —~

ship's hull. With two agents
staying aboard, the. divers

jumped feet-first off a sea

wall into Biscayne Bay to
execute a search known as a
— meaning
they would swim under-

‘ neath one side, circle the

ship's stern by the massive
propeller and then inspect
the other side. They held a
length of rope to communi-
cate with various hand tugs
and pulls.

"Don't squeeze too tight,"
the ICE dive team leader,
agent Joseph Skidmore, told
the men. "Just keep a loose
grip.".

It's not as easy as it seems.
The water was dark green,
even on a sunny February
morning. Currents are
treacherous -and unpre-
dictable in the relatively
shallow water about 15 feet
(4.5 meters) below the sur-
face. The divers sometimes
encounter sharks, barracu-
da and eels, and they can

‘feel strong vibrations from

the ship inches above.

It's extremely dark, and
the divers can only see a lit-
tle way ahead, said Alan
Vega, a team member who
has done about 100 dives
over the past three years.

"You have a flashlight and
it's like very burgundy red,
which is the paint they put

"And you're just kind of
scanning along ... to: see if
there is anything unusual.
It's not a nice scenic
Caribbean dive."

A few yards away from

the ship, a police boat
motors slowly back and
forth to prevent other craft
from approaching —.and
just in case there's a prob-
lem.

Sometimes a ship is tar-|
geted because it spent time
in a drug-source country
such as Colombia. Other
times, tips are received
about ships that may have
had boxes attached during
repairs or maintenance
when they are taken out of
the water.

Other dives are random,
said Anthony Mangione,
chief of the ICE field office
in Miami.

Back on the bay, the ICE
team found nothing amiss
on the Seaboard Pride dur-
ing a 20-minute search.

"Everything looks good,
but it needs cleaning," Skid-
more told the captain, Kar-
bowiak.

With that, Karbowiak and
his ship were cleared for
their next trip to the
Caribbean island of St.
Thomas. Although the
divers came up empty, each
dive is invaluable training

for ‘other missions, includ-
ing possible attempts by al-
Qaida or other terrorist
groups to use ports like Mia-
mi to bring in explosive
devices or blow up the ships
themselves.

"Smugglers, terrorists, you
know, they adapt," Vega
said. "So it could be a ship
coming in from London,
who is an ally of the US.
We'll search it, because you
never know where that wild
card is going to be."

When they aren't scan-
ning the cargo vessels, the
divers also scour waterways
when presidents and digni-.
taries visit. —

Sometimes they have kept
watch while investigating
drug trafficking and other
crimes, or helped local

* police locate guns and stolen

cars from lakes and quar-
ries.

In January, for instance,
the team made a grisly find
in a canal: a still-unidenti-
fied human skull.

It's even more difficult to
see during those forays into
fresh water, the agents said
— and tougher to watch for
alligators, crocodiles and
poisonous snakes.

"South Florida has lots of
different kinds of threats,"
Mangione said. "This is a
challenging environment to
work in."

association

RETIRED Deputy Commissionet
of Police John Rolle has been elected
president of the Farmers Association
of Exuma.

He and his team say they aim to
bring back the days when the island
" was a premier agriculture producer.

“We are serious about farming in
Exuma,” he told a meeting with
BAIC executives. “We believe that
the interest shown by BAIC will
cause the resurgence in farming to
be lifted to another level.”

’ Bahamas Agricultural and Indus-
trial Corporation (BAIC) executive
chairman Edison Key and a team of
officers also toured Exuma farms and

participated in a handicraft gradua-
tion. ceremony.

“Your presence with us,” said Mr
Rolle, “bespeaks the passion and
commitment that you have to see the
Bahamas move to another level as it
relates to the production of food in
the Bahamas.

“We hear that we import some
$500 million worth of food annually.
We tell you now that. the’ Farmers
Association of Exuma will endeav-
our to reduce that figure.

“There has been a resurgence of
farming in Exuma. The interest is

relates to producing our own food.”

Mr Rolle commended the assis-
tance of BAIC’s Exuma domestic
investment officer, retired Family

_ Island Administrator Everette Hart.
“There are some challenges,” he

said, “but I am sure that with (Mr
Hart) working along with us those
challenges will be overcome. -
“We appreciate his dedication and
commitment. He works very closely
with us.”
With the resurgence of agriculture,

ing a permanent site fort a farmers

“We are determined to take farm-
ing into the schools,” said Mr Rolle.
“We are asking the Ministry of Edu-
cation to make plots of land avail-
able so the children of every school in
Exuma will be introduced to farm-
ing at an early age.”

Other executives of the association
are: vice president Stephan Hall, sec-
retary Bernard Rolle, and treasurer
Althea Ferguson.

Mr Key pointed out the concerns

- of Jacques Diouf, director-general of

_the Food and Agriculture Organisa-

‘tion of the United Nations (FAO),

who said: “We are indeed on the
verge of what could turn out to be
another major food crisis. The FAO
food price index at the end of 2010
returned to its highest level.
“Drought in Russia and the export
restrictions adopted by its govern-

ment, together with lower crop har-_

vests than expected, first in the Unit-
ed States and Europe, then in Aus-
tralia and Argentina, have triggered a
process of soaring agricultural com-
modity prices on international mar-
kets.”

Mr Key pointed out that it is from
many of these countries that the
Bahamas imports its staples.

“The current global economic
upheaval which has already expressed
itself in dreaded unemployment and
higher costs of living for Bahamians
begs the question:

How long:can we continue to send
some $500 million out of the country
each year for goods and services,
much of which we can easily provide
ourselves?” he asked. -

BAIC, he said, has endeavoured
to ifispire Bahamians throughout the
islands to produce .as much of their
own food as possible on the islands
where they live.

“Oftentimes we speak of food
security or self-sufficiency,” he said.
“Well, national self-sufficiency is
achieved only when the same obtains
at the local level. A self-sufficient
Exuma contributes to a self-sufficient
Bahamas.

“And, thanks to.Exumians, our
labour has not been in vain. I can see
that Exuma is on the way to becom-
ing a major producer of a variety of
fruits, vegetables and root crops.”

'Exuma was “well represented” at
the recent North Andros seminar on
greenhouse technology, he recalled.

“With quality as our watchword,
there is a bright future in food pro-
duction,” said Mr Key. “People have
to eat.”

He commended Exumians for their
initiative in taking advantage of
opportunities to provide for them-
selves rather than waiting for the gov-
ernment to do for them. ©

Protest against
the sale of the
BIC is odd

By RICK LOWE

ACCORDING to news
reports, 800 to 1,000 peo-
ple blocked Bay Street last
week to protest the sale of
BTC to Cable and Wire-
less/LIME and it all seems
odd.

Some people w were say-
ing that rights are being
violated by selling BTC.
But what rights are being
violated?

Yes, sometimes Mr.
Ingraham can be brash, but
does that mean he is uncar-
ing, a dictator, or corrupt,
or violating rights as
alleged? It's doubtful.

Using emotive language
and trying to rile people up
as some are doing could
violate rights for sure.

What the protesters are
missing is BTC is not
‘owned by Bahamians.
_ That's an illusion. A politi-
cal construct. It is owned
by the Bahamas Govern-
ment.

Over the years succes-
sive governments have led
us down the garden path by
wasting and borrowing
beyond the country's abili-
ty to sustain, and the sale of
BTC might hélp keep the
Bahamian dollar stable and
reduce some of the debt
that we all have to pay one
way or the other..

OPINION

» The Opposition seems
shameless on this one, after
trying to sell BTC them-
selves under similar cir-
cumstances to a company
called Bluewater, now it
would.seem that some are
trying to.incite people.

Another turnabout by
the Opposition was the
Constitutional Referendum
of 2002. Both parties
agreed in principle in the
House of Assembly, then
one campaigned against it,
confusing the electorate. .

The latest reason not to

‘sell is there are complaints

about LIME posted on the
Internet.

If you research ever.
company: in the world
online it seems you will find
bad comments. We survey
some of our clients, and last
quarter we had an 84 per
cent approval rating (our
goal is 85 per cent), but the
one client that complained,
really complained, bringing
the results of all the good
comments lower. Is that
what is happening with
CWC? We also find ee
often it's people with com-
plaints that fill the survey

_out. Those that had no



issues, do not take the time
to respond.

Are there similar com-
plaints about BTC going
around on the Internet?

Could the government °
have been more open? No
doubt. Both the FNM or
PLP governments over the
years could have been
more open. Promises of a
Freedom of Information
Act have been made by
each of them. Let's see who

_passes it into law. That

might. help with govern-
ment. transparency in the
future.

There were apparently
no dissenenters before
BTC was sold, at least pub-
licly. So why the dissent —
now? The government cor-

porations shouldbe sold if ~~
for nothing more than to

get politics and politicians
out of it.

All this protesting is odd.
When you dig a little deep-
er unseemly politics appear
to be at work?

“The Prime Minister seems

him and his party the right to
implement any and every
programme in the way they
see fit without regard to pub-
lic concerns. Yes, winning an

democratic governance

Dr Nottage said that there

significant or major proce-
dures.

“That is why we ‘hear the
idle boasting by those oppo-

site that a decision has been -

made in regard to the sale of

. BTC and nothing can prevent

it. It is that arrogance that has

caused them to go mad and

put into an agreement for sale
a self imposed penalty of $100
million if there is any breach.
That is why we hear these
false reports about bogus
polls that suggest that the

majority of Bahamians
approve the sale of BTC to
Cable and Wireless.

“And that is why the prin-
cipal decision makers, who
long ago pledged to the
Bahamian people that they
would never sell the majority
shares in BTC to a foreign
company have reneged on
their commitment; that is why
they reneged on the state-
ment that they would never
sell to Cable and Wireless.

“The only sentiment that
has not been reversed is the
statement that if BTC was

given to Bahamians to run it
would not succeed. That in
the face of the fact that
Bahamians kept Batelco, and

later BTC as one of the lead-.

ing telecoms companies in the
Caribbean until this latest

version of the FNM govern- —

ment stopped its forward
development when _ it
assumed the government in

- Danish family's sailboat
hijacked in Indian Ocean

COPENHAGEN, Denmark
Associated Press

PIRATES have hijacked a
Danish sailboat with four adults
and three children aboard as they
were crossing the Indian Ocean,
Denmark's government said
Monday.

Most hostages captured in the
pirate-infested waters off East
Africa are professional sailors, not

_ families. Pirates are not known to

have captured children before.

The Danish Foreign Ministry
said the ship sent a distress signal
on Thursday. On board was a
Danish couple, their three chil-
dren — aged 12-16 — and two
adult crew members, also Danes.

"It has now been confirmed
that the sailboat was hijacked by
pirates in the Indian Ocean," the
ministry said in a statement.

Two days before the Danish
sailboat sent the distress signal,
four Americans were killed by
Somali pirates in a hostage stand-
off. They were the first Ameri-
cans slain by Somali pirates since
a wave of attacks began six years
ago.

Danish Foreign Minister Lene
Espersen said she was "deeply
concerned" about the situation
and expressed her sympathies to
the Danes on the boat and their
relatives.

"It is almost unbearable to
think that there are children
involved and I can only sharply
denounce the pirates’ actions,"
Espersen said.

Government officials will do
"everything in our power" to help
the Danes, she said, but would
not be able to release detailed
information about their efforts

Danish news agency Ritzau, cit-

woman Charlotte Slente, said the
boat was believed to be heading
toward Somalia.

Earlier Monday, the European
Union Naval Force said Somali
pirates hijacked a Greek-owned
cargo vessel with 23 crew on
board.

The MV Dover was seized
Monday in the north Arabian sea,
260 miles (420 kilometers) north-
east of the Omani port of Salalah,
the naval force said. The MV
Dover was on its way to Yemen
from Pakistan when it was
attacked. It was registered with

the naval force said Monday. The
Panama-flagged vessel and its Fil-

on growing unrest in the oil-rich Middle East. He
said the government is “hopeful” a good scenario

to hear what the government's posi-

tion was with regard to the Memo-

Speaking to-The Tribune yester-
day, Mr McCartney said: “The com-

as the advantages of Cable and
Wireless, the condition of sale, it

Understanding, and it spoke about

claiming they were straw .
vendors attempting to
defraud the US govern-
ment by trafficking in
counterfeit goods. The
women faced up to three
years in federal prison.

Three months after the
initial arrests, all of the
straw vendors were back
in the Bahamas. The
Bahamas government
through the New York
consulate office and the
Bahamian American Cul-
tural Society, and other
agencies, assisted the straw
vendors.

Throughout the ordeal,
the Progressive Liberal
Party (PLP) criticised the
government’s handling of
the situation. Opposition
members of parliament
urged the government not
to\“come off as politically
impotent.” They ques-
tioned the responsibility of
the government “for being -
complicit” in the activities
of the straw vendors.

The PLP launched an
investigation into the situ-
ation and sent representa-
tives to the US to lobby on
behalf of the vendors.
They took credit for the
government’s decision to
assist the vendors and
encouraged the govern-
ment to “do more, includ-
ing getting bail for the
women and ultimately, try-
ing to get the charges
against them dropped.”

Attorney Elliot Sagor
was hired by the govern-
ment to assist the incar-
cerated vendors. The gov-
ernment also provided
assistance to the family
members of the vendors
through the Ministry of
Education, the Depart-
ment of Social Services
and the Ministry of
Labour.

Based on reports detail-
ing the concerns of the
straw vendors in US cus-
tody, the government
issued a formal notice to
the US Embassy in Nas-
sau over their treatment. —

Most of the vendors
pleaded guilty to the
charges and were sen-
tenced to time served and
ordered out of the US. At

: least one of the vendors

was served an order of
restitution, and another to
supervised probation.

The King’s Speech
reigns at Oscars,
but some want
comedians back —

NEW YORK
Associated Press |

IN THE clear light of a post-
Oscar Monday morning, at
least two themes had emerged.
The first: British royalty reigns
— again! And the second:
Bring back the comedians!

Maybe it was inevitable that
on such a predictable Oscar
night — the acting awards and
even the best picture win for
"The King's Speech" were
widely anticipated — attention

would focus on the show itself,

especially the hosting.

And many did see the charm
in hosts Anne Hathaway and
James Franco, for whom the
adjectives "young" and "hip"
seemed to become part of their
very names during the run-up
to the Oscars — especially in
their clever "Inception"-

. inspired opening montage.

But Oscar producers must
have known their telecast was
running into trouble when the
night's biggest laughs went not
to the newly minted hosts but
to former host Billy Crystal —
and even to the vintage clip he
presented of the dear depart-
ed Bob Hope, with classic
Oscar jokes that never grow
old. ,

And it wasn't lost on some
that' even the hosts’ best bit, the
montage in which they inserted
themselves into nominated
films, harked back to Crystal's
own introductory gags during
his eight years as host.

No wonder Hathaway
seemed’so admiring of Crystal
when he showed up. Not as
much as the crowd, though — it
leaped to its feet even before
he said a word. "So, where was

I?" he quipped.

So did the Academy, in its
zeal to reach a younger demo-
graphic, overreach? And do the
Oscars need a single, solid

comedian to hold the night -

together?
That was certainly the case
many were making online. "It

looks as if the Academy will

have to give the hosting hon-
ors to Ricky Gervais next
year," wrote Toby Young on
the website of the Daily Teéle-
graph of.London. "It's the only
way to save the Oscars from
certain death." On Slate.com,
a headline said the decidedly
laid-back Franco "Might Have

Been Reluctantly Emceeing a

Distant Cousin's Bat Mitzvah."

And comic Andy Borowitz
tweeted during the show: "This
is riveting television. By the
way, I'm watching the Knicks
and the Heat now."

the Laugh Factory comedy club

show with a group of comics
including Dave Chapelle. "It
got boring very quickly," he
said — until Crystal came on.
They all applauded.

"Finally somebody great! He

"was wonderful," Masada said

in a phone interview just after
the show. The Oscars, he
argued, need a comedian, full
stop. "A comedian keeps you
connected all evening long," he
said. "You wait to see what he
or she is going to say about

what's happening. It gives the ©

show heart."

Masada said he especially
énjoyed laughing at Hope's
famous joke, in a clip intro-
duced by Crystal Sunday, about
the Oscars, "or, as they're
known at my house, Passover."
So did film historian Leonard
Maltin, who calls it "one of the
greatest jokes ever written."

But you don't have to be a
comic to make a great host, or

deliver a classic quip. Actor |

David Niven will long be
remembered for his stellar
response to the streaker who
sped by him in 1974: "Isn't it
fascinating to think," Niven
noted drily, "that probably the
only laugh that man will ever

get in his life is by stripping off
and showing his shortcom-
ings?"

Likewise, actor Alec Bald-

' win was a hit when he hosted

alongside Steve Martin last
year, as he was in Sunday's
opening montage. As Franco
and Hathaway tried to figure
out whose dream they had

‘invaded, "Inception"-like, Bald-

win assured them it wasn't his.
"If this were my dream," he
said, "I'd be hosting the Oscars
again." (From Baldwin's dream
to producers' ears?)

You can also be a popular

comic and bomb at the Oscars
— David Letterman has made
a running joke about the bad
reviews he got for his one Oscar
SUE on?
The comic best known for his
yeoman Oscar duties was
Hope, who hosted the first of
his. 18 shows (not consecutive)
in 1940, and the first televised
show in 1953. Others included
Johnny Carson, of course,
Whoopi Goldberg, Jon Stew-
art, Chris Rock, and Ellen
DeGeneres.

"Standup comedians do
know how to handle a room;"
said Jonathan Kuntz, a profes-

Awards on Sunday. (AP)

sor of film and Hollywood his-
tory at the University of Cali-
fornia, Los Angeles. "They
know how to handle all kinds of
situations. They seem so much
more confident.”

This year's hosts, according
to Kuntz, were not terrible and
not great — just OK.

"They did look like they
were reciting lines," he said.

"They didn't provide any classic —

moments."

But maybe that's a little
much to ask. After all, the
Oscars are a key marketing
vehicle for Hollywood.

"And Hollywood's core audi-

* ence is younger people," Kuntz .

says. So the hosts were chosen
to appeal to that demographic.
, It's not clear yet how they

fared — an estimated 37.6 mil- -

lion viewers watched this year,
down nearly 10 percent from
2010 (but up from 2008 and
2009). Preliminary Nielsen rat-
ings said that numbers in the
18-to-49-year-old demograph-
ic were down only 2 percent

Kuntz says it's not as easy as -

assuming that a comic would
be better. With all the comics
who have hosted, he says, the
next great host has not been
found.

"They haven't found a Bob
Hope or a Billy Crystal for the
21st century yet," he says. "You
just never know until they try it.,
You just have to throw them
out there and see what hap-
pens."

REPORT: IRAN
OPPOSITION
LEADERS JAILED

TEHRAN, Iran
Associated Press

IRANIAN authorities have
taken senior opposition leaders
Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mah-
di Karroubi to a prison in
Tehran, a réformist website said
Monday. A sémiofficial news
agency denied the report.

Kaleme.com said Mousavi, his
wife Zahra Rahnavard, as well as
Karroubi and his wife, Fatemeh
Karroubi, were transferred to
Heshmatieh prison in the Iranian:
capital. It was not immediately.
clear when they were moved.

"According to the latest infor-
mation obtained from reliable
sources, Mousavi and Karroubi,
together with their wives ... have,
been arrested and transferred to
Heshmatieh prison,"
kaleme.com said.

But the semiofficial Fars news
agency, which is close to the
powerful Revolutionary Guard,

‘denied the report. Fars quoted

an unnamed judiciary official as.
saying the men were still under:
house arrest and have not been’
allowed to leave their homes or
have any outside contact.

Calls placed by The Associ-
ated Press to judiciary onicals
went unanswered.

The imprisonment, if con-.
firmed, would mark a major
escalation of Iran's political crisis
amid defiant calls from the oppo-
sition to stand up to the ruling
system.

Earlier Monday, Iran's state
prosecutor, Gholam Hossein
MOhseni Ejehi, said that author-
ities had cut all outside contact
with the opposition leaders as
part of a campaign to silence dis-
sent.

The official IRNA news
agency quoted Ejehi as warning

’ that authorities would take "oth-

er measures" against Mir Hos-
sein Mousavi and Mahdi Kar-
roubi if necessary.

"In the first step, their con-. ~

‘tacts such as meetings and tele-

phone conversations have been
restricted," Ejehi was quoted by
IRNA as saying. "Should cir-

cumstances arise, other measures

will be taken."

Ejehi did not say where they:
were being held.

Mousavi and Karroubi were
placed under house arrest after
urging supporters to attend a
Feb, [+ rally, Clashes between,
protesters and security forces
during the demonstrations killed
two and wounded dozens.

Karroubi's website, saham-
news.org, said Iranian security
forces took the two and their
Wives to an "unknown location"
on Thursday.

Activists and opposition mem-
bers have demanded Mousavi
and Karroubi be released, vow-
ing to stage demonstrations
every Tuesday until they are
freed.

Pro-Gadhafi
forces close in on
rebel-held cities

TRIPOLI, Libya
Associated Press

INTERNATIONAL pres-
sure on Moammar Gadhafi to
end his crackdown on oppo-
nents escalated Monday as his
loyalists closed in on rebel-
held cities closest to the capi-
tal. The U.S. moved naval and
air forces closer to Libya and
said all options were open,
including the use of warplanes
to patrol the North African
nation's skies and protect
Libyans threatened by their
leader.

France said it would start .

flying aid to the opposition-
controlled eastern half of the
country. The European Union
imposed an arms embargo and
other sanctions, following the
lead of the U.S. and the U.N.
The EU was also considering
the creation of a no-fly zone
over Libya. And the U.S. and
Europe were freezing billions
in Libya's foreign assets.

' "Gadhafi has lost the legiti-
macy to govern, and it is time
for him to go without further
violence or delay," U.S. Sec-
retary of State Hillary Rod-
ham Clinton said. "No option
is off the table. That of course
includes a no-fly zone," Clin-
ton added. British Prime Min-
ister David Cameron told
British lawmakers: "We do not

in any way rule out the use of -

military assets" to deal with
Gadhafi's regime.

Gadhafi, who has launched
the most brutal.crackdown of
any Arab regime facing a wave
of popular uprisings, laughed

off a question from ABC ©

News about whether he would
step down as the Obama
administration is demanding.

_"My people love me. They
would die for me," he said.
ABC reported that Gadhafi
invited the U.N. or any other
organization to come on a fact-
finding mission.

The turmoil in the oil-rich
nation roiled markets for

another day. Libya's oil chief.

said production had been cut
by around 50 percent, denting
supplies that go primarily to
Europe.

The uprising that began on
Feb. 15 has posed most serious
challenge to Gadhafi in: his
more than four decades in
power. His bloody crackdown
has left hundreds, and perhaps
thousands, dead. But clashes
appear to have eased consid-
erably over the past few days
after planeloads of foreign

journalists arrived in the capi-.

tal at the government's invita-
tion.

The two sides are

entrenched, and the direction '

the uprising takes next could
depend on which can hold out
longest. Gadhafi is dug in in
Tripoli and nearby cities,

backed by his elite security
forces and militiamen who are
generally better armed than
the‘ military. His opponents,
holding the east and much of
the country's oil infrastructure,

also control pockets in west-
ern Libya near Tripoli. They
are backed by mutinous army
units, but those forces appear
to have limited supplies. of
ammunition and weapons.
Gadhafi opponents have
moved to consolidate their
hold in the east, centered on

Benghazi — Libya’ s second.

largest city, where the upris-

‘ing began. Politicians there on

Sunday set up their first lead-

‘ership council to manage day-

to-day affairs, taking a step

toward forming what could be
an alternative to Gadhafi's
regime.

- The opposition is backed by
numerous units of the military
in the east that joined the
uprising, and they hold sever-
al bases and Benghazi's air-
port. But so far, the units do
not appear to have melded
into a unified fighting force.
Gadhafi long kept the military
weak, fearing a‘ challenge to
his rule, so many units are
plagued by shortages of sup-
plies and ammunition.

On Monday, pro-Gadhafi
forces retook control of the
border crossings with Tunisia

’ in the west after they had fall,

en under opposition control
and bombed an ammunition
depot in the rebel-held east,
residents in the area said. The
Libyan Defense Ministry
denied the bombing.

Regime forces also moved
to tighten their ring around
two opposition-controlled
cities closest to the capital
Tripoli — Zawiya and Misrata
— where the two sides are
locked in standoffs.

An Associated Press
reporter saw a large, pro-Gad-
hafi force massed on the west-
ern edge of Zawiya, some 30
miles (50 kilometers) west of
Tripoli, with about a dozen
armored vehicles along. with
tanks and jeeps mounted with
anti-aircraft guns. An officer
said they were from the elite

Khamis Brigade, named after
one of Gadhafi's sons who
commands it. U.S. diplomats
have said the brigade is the
best equipped force in Libya.

Residents inside the city said
they were anticipating a possi-
ble attack.

"Our people are waiting for
them to come and, God will-
ing, we will defeat them," one
resident who only wanted to
be quoted by his first name,

Alaa, told AP in Cairo by tele-

phone.

In Misrata, ‘Libya’ s third
largest city 125 miles (200 kilo-
meters) east of Tripoli, pro-
Gadhafi troops who control
part of an air base on the city's
outskirts tried to advance
Monday. But they were
repelled by opposition forces,
who included residents armed
with automatic weapons and
defected army units allied with
them, one of the opposition
fighters said.

No casualties were report-
ed and the fighter claimed that
his side had captured eight sol-
diers, including a senior officer.

The opposition controls
most of the air base, and the
fighter said dozens of anti-
Gadhafi gunmen have arrived
from further east in recent
days as reinforcements.

Several residents of the east-
ern city of Ajdabiya said Gad-

_hafi's air force also bombed

an ammunition depot nearby
held by the opposition. One,
17-year-old Abdel-Bari Zwei,
reported intermittent explo-
sions and a fire, and another,
Faraj al-Maghrabi, ‘said the
facility was partially damaged.
The site contains bombs, mis-
siles and ammunition — key
for the undersupplied opposi-
tion military forces. ,

State TV carried a state-

ment by Libya's Defense Min-
istry denying any attempt to
bomb the depot. Ajdabiya lies
about 450 miles (750 kilome-
ters) east of Tripoli along the
Mediterranean coast.

Gadhafi supporters said .

they were in control of the city
of Sabratha, west of .Tripoli,
which has seemed to go back
and forth between the two
camps the past week. Several
residents told The AP that
protesters set fire to a police
station, but then were dis-
persed. Anti-Gadhafi graffiti
— "Down with the enemy of
freedom" and "Libya is free,
Gadhafi must leave" — were
scrawled on some walls, but

residents were painting them

hafi's crackdown escalated on,
Monday.

In Washington, the Penta-
gon said it was moving some
naval and air forces closer to
Libya in case they are need-
ed. The U.S. has a regular mil-
itary presence in the Mediter-
ranean Sea and farther to the
south has two aircraft carriers
in the Persian Gulf area.

FORMER Cuban leader Fidel
Castro has claimed the unrest in
the Middle East is evidence that
the policy of the United States and
NATO in the region has “gone
into a crisis”

In the latest edition of his
“Reflections”, meditations on
international affairs released by
Mr Castro since leaving office in
2008, he said the “policy of plun-
dering” imposed by US and
NATO in the Middle East is spi-
ralling out of control.

“It has inevitably unravelled
with the high cost of grains, the
effects of which can be felt more
forcefully in the Arab countries
where, in spite of their huge
resources of oil, the shortage of
water, areas covered by desert and
the generalised poverty of the peo-
ple contrast with the enormous
resources coming from the oil pos-
sessed by the privileged sectors..

“While food prices triple, real

estate fortunes and the treasures
of the aristocratic minority reach
millions of millions of dollars, ” Mr
Castro said.

He said the Arab world, for the
most part Muslim in culture and
beliefs, has seen itself additionally

humiliated by the “imposition of .

blood and fire by a state that was
not capable of fulfilling the basic
obligations that were part of their
origin, from the colonial order
existing up to the end of WW I,
by virtue of which the victorious
powers created the United
Nations organisation and imposed
world trade and economy.
“Thanks to the treason commit-
ted by Anwar El-Sadat at Camp
David, the Palestinian State has

not been able to exist, despite the ©

of billions of dollars every year as
well as to the very Arab States
that were submitted and being
humiliated by Israel.

“The genie has escaped from
the bottle and NATO doesn’t
know how to control it,” Mr Cas-
tro said.

He said it is obvious that civil
war is brewing in Libya and
agreed with the Nomura Bank of
Japan’s statement that “If Libya
and Algeria suspend oil produc-

tion, prices could reach a maxi-:
mum of more than $220 a barrel

and OPEC’s inactive capacity
would be reduced to 2.1 million
barrels per day, similar to levels
seen during the Gulf War and
when values touched 147 dollars a
barrel in 2008”.

Mr Castro asked: “Who could
pay that price these days? What
would be the consequences in the
midst of the food crisis?”

THE TRIBUNE





his past week-
end, I was privy
to several inde-
pendent con-
versations concerning rising
oil and food costs. Earlier
this year, the Prime Minis-
ter spoke of the threat of
higher oil prices that are
expected by mid-year. The
current social unrest in the
Middle East, needless to say,
is exacerbating the upward
pressures on oil prices.

The common thread in all
the conversations was that
gasoline was $4.75 per gal-
lon, and this coupled with
rising food prices, higher
electricity costs and higher
taxes is a cause of concern
for Bahamians throughout
the country. However, our
official published indices are
surprisingly low; in fact,
many seem to argue that
they are absurdly low.

With inflation non-existent
(according to official

sources), wage growth will .
correspondingly be non-exis-.

tent. Many economists pre-
dict that we are in a period
where real wages will decline
and disposable incomes will
‘ come under greater pressure.
This is not a pleasant situa-
tion, but the reality is that as
most countries are going
through difficult times try-
ing to balance their national
budget, many individuals will
experience similar chal-
lenges.

.In the coming months,
there will be much agitation
for increasing wages, and the
minimum wage in particular.
The real question is whether
we should be focusing on a
minimum wage or whether
it should be on a ‘living
wage’.

Since July 1, 2000, ae min-
imum wage for government
employees in the Bahamas
has been established at $4.45
per hour, or about $175 per
week. If my memory serves
me correctly, I believe that
_ the actual legislated rate is
$4 per hour or some $160
per week..

Over the years, I have

found that very few peisons ~

actually take time to under-
stand the issues involved in
establishing and maintaining
a minimum wage policy. The

arguments in favour of a _

minimum wage seem just as
strong as those against it.

efining a living wage
is the hare minimum

Article
_ I recently came across a
March 13, 2007, article by
Lisa Smith, a writer for
Investopedia.Com, entitled
Exploring the Minimum
Wage, which I kept in my

archives. This article is an |

excellent and extremely well

written, easy to read, discus-

sion that I regard as a ‘must
read’ on the topic and
reprint below: .

“The International Labour
Office in Geneva, Switzer-
land, reports that some 90
per cent of countries around
the world have legislation

supporting’ a minimum wage. ~

The minimum wage in coun-
tries that rank within the
lowest 20 per cent of the pay
scale is less than $2 per day,
or about $57 per month. The
minimum wage in the coun-
tries that represent the high-

- est 20 per cent of the pay

scale is about $40 per day,
or about $1,185 per month.
“Despite paying one of the
highest minimum wages in
the world, the minimum
wage is a perpetual hot pota-
to among politicians in the
United States. The last time
the minimum wage was fed-
erally increased in the Unit-
ed States was 1997. Propo-
nents of an increase argue
that the cost of living has
risen more than 25 per cent
since then. Since the mini-
mum wage is not indexed to
inflation, it does not system-
atically increase in propor-

_tion to changes in costs of

living.

Arguments in Favour

“Those in favour of
increasing the minimum
wage argue that such an
increase lifts people out of
poverty, helps low income
families make ends meet and
narrows the gap between the
rich and poor. That last argu-



ment is underscored by the
exorbitant salaries earned by
chief executives and other
corporate titans, who are
also the same people gener-
ally arguing against an
increase in the minimum
wage. The idea of an
increase also has a strong
populist appeal, particularly
in a nation where discussions
about social class, when they
are held at all, are nearly
always framed in terms of
the rich versus the poor.”

Arguments Against

“On the other side of the
discussion is the argument
that increasing the minimum
wage hurts small businesses,
squeezes profit margins,
leads to inflation, encourages
employers to downsize their
staff and increases the cost
of goods to the end con-
sumer. Interestingly, the
arguments against an
increase rarely focus on the
fact that a good portion of

_ States already mandate a

wage that is higher than the
federal minimum wage.”

By the Numbers
“Economically speaking,

the theory of supply and.

demand suggests that the
imposition of an artificial val-
ue on wages that is higher
than the value that would be



dictated in a free-market sys-
tem creates an inefficient
market and leads to unem-
ployment. The inefficiency
occurs when there are a
greater number of workers
that want the higher paying
jobs than there are employ-
ers willing to pay the higher
wages. Critics disagree.
“What is generally agreed
upon by all parties is that the
number of individuals rely-
ing on the minimum wage in
the United States is less than

5 per cent. However, this sta-

tistic is largely ignored in
favor of citations regarding
the number of people that
live in poverty. Keep in mind
that earning more than the
minimum wage does not
necessarily mean that one is
not living in poverty.
According to estimates from
the CIA World Fact Book,
some 13 per cent of the US
population lives in poverty
— that is 37 million people.
“To put this in perspec-
tive, the federal poverty lev-
el for a working adult was
$9,800 in.2006, according to
the United States Depart-

~~ment of Health and Human

Services. At $5.25 per hour,
a minimum wage workers
earns $10,920 per year,
which is already greater than
the federally determined
poverty level. If the work-

er's pay jumps to $7.25, year-
ly earnings would move to
$15,080 per year for a 40-
hour week. From a mathe-
matical and logical perspec-
tive, increasing the minimum
wage does not lift anyone
out of poverty because the
prior minimum wage already
paid more than the official
poverty rate. ~

“The numbers would seem

to put the minimum wage
argument to rest, but only
because of the misaligned
focus on the phrase ‘mini-
mum wage’. When referring
to that phrase, many people
actually seem to be seeking a
living wage, which is gener-
ally defined as the amount
required to raise a family on
a single wage-earner’s salary.

“Pegging that number to
the poverty rate for a family
of four moves the bar to
$20,000 per year. Looking at
the argument from this per-

spective, neither the current
‘minimum wage nor the pro-

posed increased wage will
provide a living wage. Even
if an increase would move
the salary of every worker

‘in the country to this level, it

would make little difference
in the statistical comparison
of the earnings of the aver-
age worker to those of the
highest-paid chief execu-
tives.”

No Easy Answers.

What is the solution to the
minimum wage/living wage
issue? Statistics can be gath-
ered to support both sides of
the argument. While there
are no easy answers, a good
first step is to frame the
debate in realistic terms.
Referring to the minimum
wage as a wage designed to
support a family confuses the
issue. Families need a living
wage, not a minimum wage.

With that said, generally,

working at a fast food restau-
rant or the local gas station is
not a career. These are jobs

designed to help entry-level .

workers join the workforce,

- not to support the (long

term) financial needs of a
family.

On the core issue of mini-
mum wage itself, political
wrangling is unlikely to
result in a real solution. A
more practical solution is to

join the workforce at the low

end of the wage scale, build
your skills, get an education
and move up the ladder to
a better-paying job just. as
members of the workforce
have done for generations.

Conclusion
The reality is that a high
minimum wage for a service-

driven economy such as the |
Bahamas leads to concerns *
about pricing ourselves out |

of the market. Expensive
labour is one thing...but

expensive and unproductive ,
labour is a recipe for total |

disaster.

Therefore, the ‘automatic |

cost of living adjustment’
argument can only be con-
templated if it is associated
with measurable increases in
productivity. Really, the
need is to strive for service
excellence in a service-dri-
ven economy.

Perhaps a more practical
way to approach this whole
issue is to consider the ‘living

wage’ approach. What isa .

reasonable ‘living wage’ (the
amount required to raise a
family on a single wage-earn-
er’s salary) for the Bahamas?
Maybe this is a statistic we

‘should ‘define for the

Bahamas and try to address.

We can address this by |

examining not just wages but
also including other means
of social/government inter-
vention, and measuring any

shortfall. For example, if we |

determine that the living °

wage is, say, $15,000 per
annum (I have no clue what
this number is or should

be...it can be calculated), we |

ought to Iook at look at

wages and other forms of ;

government assistance being
délivered, such as food pro-
grammes, rent assistance, in
order to get a true picture of

‘the ‘real’ situation.

I would argue that a living
wage could provide more
insight to the challenges that
the ‘man on the street’ faces,

especially i in these nyins ‘s
times. -

Education targeted PXQUIMIMINTSY
for securities dealers GWU aan

By MEGAN REYNOLDS
Tribune Staff Reporter
mreynolds@tribunemedia.net



CONTINUING educa-
tion requirements for
licensed Bahamas-based
securities dealers were urged
yesterday, the Bahamas
Institute of Chartered
Accountants (BICA) presi-
dent saying this nation was
one of the few that did not
have such stipulations.

Proposed regulations
designed to boost confi-
dence and investment in
Bahamian and international
markets were divulged by
industry professionals at a
seminar held by the
Bahamas Association of
Securities Dealers (BASD).

Around 30 of the 554
Securities Commission reg-
istrants in the Bahamas
gathered at the British Colo-
nial Hilton and heard about
developments in the indus-
try to ensure Bahamian
traders operate at leading
industry standards.

Ongoing education pro-
grammes for licensed bro-
kers and securities invest-
ment.advisers (SIAs) was
called for by BASD board
secretary, and BICA presi-
dent, Reece Chipman, as
well as sales training, estab-
lished codes of conduct and



ZHIVARGO LAING

Mr Chipman said the
Bahamas was the only coun-
try that does not require
some kind of ongoing edu-
cation for licensed securities
dealers, and therefore needs
to put these procedures in
place.

And. as the. economy
shows slow signs of Tecov-

ery, everyone involved in .

securities trading should be
informed and educated
about the product they are
selling, and take responsi-
bility for the sale of those
products.

Offshore

Around 90 per cent of
Bahamian broker/dealers
and SIAs operate offshore
accounts, and therefore
Bahamian traders should be
required to meet interna-
tional standards foreign
clients would expect, Mr
Chipman said.

“We have to be more
competitive,” he said. “We
have to get out there, and
it’s a hustle now because
we’re trickling out of this
‘recessionary period, so we

_need to be prepared for
what’s to come.”

He added: “We should
have a more vibrant securi-

greater supervision of
trades. :

However, as just a frac-
tion of the country’s 554 reg-
istrants were present, Mr
Chipman said there was
much work to do in order
to reach out to all those
operating in the Bahamian
industry.

Bimini Bay obtains

new brand partner

FROM page 1B

yesterday in a release issued by RockResorts, a subsidiary of
Vail Resorts. Eleven of Vail Resorts’ 27 properties in US,
Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, St Lucia and Costa Rica
are RockResorts at present.

In 2005,-Gerardo Capo, chairman of the Capo Group,
which ‘owns the Bimini Bay Resort and Marina, revealed that
the company had signed a management agreement with
Conrad Hotels, a Hilton Hotels luxury brand; to operate and
manage the Bimini Bay Resort.

It is not clear what came.of this agreement and how the
decision to shift the operation/management of the resort to
RockResorts was reached. Rafael Reyes, president of RAV
Bahamas Ltd, a subsidiary of the Capo Group, who speaks
on behalf of Bimini Bay Resort and Marina, could not be
reached up to press time yesterday.

In the release issued by RockResorts, Mr Reyes is quot-
ed as saying that the new agreement with the hotel compa-
ny “represents a new chapter for our homeowners, for our
guests and for our community and the island of Bimini”.

"As we look ahead to the future with plans to improve the

' guest experience and the homeowner experience, it was

critical to us to select the right partner. RockResorts bring
the perfect combination of experience in the luxury resort
industry and environmental leadership,” he said.

Development

The Capo Group has come under fire in previous years
for alleged destruction of what have been deemed envi-
ronmentally sensitive areas in Bimini as it proceeds with the
development of the resort, but it has frequently - and vehe-
mently - denied such claims.

RockResorts’ release on its impending takeover of man-
agerial control at the property stressed the natural envi-
ronment as a focusas it moves ahead in Bimini.

RockResorts has become “known for its progressive e
ronmental programs, as well as its welcoming and Srieadiy
guest service, exquisite spas and superb cuisine”, said fhe
statement.

“We will-bring our core values of environmental stew-
ardship and community involvement that are integral to
our RockResorts Echo corporate responsibility program
to Bimini Bay Resort and Marina," added Julie Klein, direc-
tor of environmental affairs for RockResorts.

The implementation of “industry leading environmental .

initiatives” at Bimini Bay Resort and Marina are promised,
such as a ‘Water on the Rocks’ program that eliminates
nearly all the plastic water bottle usage by guests, a volun-
tary guest donation program for local environmental pro-
jects, a volunteer vacation program called ‘Give and Get-
away’, a progressive sustainable cuisine programme, a green
guest room programme, and the soon-to-be launched ‘Go
Green, Get Green’ meeting and event program.

In addition to the existing hotel, the Bimini Bay Resort
and Marina presently features three restaurants, a shop-
ping village, children's activity centre, two outdoor pools and
tennis courts.

Alongside the development of the boutique hotel, to
open in 2014, further plans will see an on-site casino devel-
oped.

AUDIT ISSUES: From L to R: Kendrick Christie, Grant Thornton partner; Paul Andy Gomez, Grant Thorn-
ton managing partner; Veta Brown, PHA chairman; and Herbert Brown, PHA managing director

Grant Thornton (Bahamas) partners have
paid a courtesy call on Public Hospital
Authority (PHA) chairman, Veta Brown,
and managing director, Herbert Brown, at
the latter’s corporate offices in Centreville.

Grant Thornton serves as the indepen-
dent auditors of PHA, and managing part-
ner, Paul Andy Gomez, and partner-in-
charge of assurance and fraud investigations,
Kendrick K. Christie, took the opportunity
to discuss relevant audit issues, including

internal controls and corporate governance.

Management

The Public Hospital Authority is respon-
sible for the management of the three gov-
ernment-owned hospitals, namely the
Princess Margaret Hospital and the Sandi-
lands Rehabilitation Centre in Nassau, and
the Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport.

In addition to its mandate for public hos-
pitals, the PHA is also responsible for the
management and development of other

: areas of the public sector health services

system, such as the National Emergency
Medical Services (NEMS), the Bahamas
National Drug Agency (BNDA) and the
Materials Management Directorate (MMD).
The community health services in Grand
Bahama, together with the Rand Memorial
Hospital, form a local health system, which
is called the Grand Bahama Health System.

Mr Gomez said the PHA performs a vital
role in the physical and mental development
of the Bahamas, overseeing the provision
of medical services to patients of every eco-
nomic and social status.

He added that the Grant Thornton part-
ners were pleased that the significant invest-
ment in audit risk assessment tools and tech-
nology over the last five years places it in a
unique position to audit entities such as
PHA that have complex operations.

Grant Thornton (Bahamas) is a part of
Grant Thornton International (GTI), and
is among the top seven international
accounting and consulting organisations in
the world, with 585 offices in 110 countries,
2,600 partcts; and 30,000 employees world-
wide.

While backing the notion that “local broadcasting should be }

streamlined to offer more local content covering all aspects of
Bahamian life and culture”, Cable Bahamas said that desig-
nating ZNS as a PSB would not be the answer.

“Historically, PSB structures were designed to inform, edu-
cate and entertain. Today, however, the cold truth is that these
objectives have become challenging to achieve in markets that
are advanced in technological entertainment,” the BISX-listed
company warned. Competition is no longer local but global,
with insurmountable channels accessible through broadband
Internet and other great technological advancements such that
audience appeal (which translates into funding) for PSB mod-
els has now dwindled in many countries and, in particular, the
Caribbean region.

“The late 1990s saw the privatization of four public service
models in the Caribbean: Jamaica, Dominica, St Kitts & Nevis

and Trinidad & Tobago, and the sizeable downsizing of the :

Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation in Barbados.”

As a result, Cable Bahamas concluded: “The companies are
concerned that in a small island state such as this, it may not be
feasible to create a model where there is fiftle or no govern-
mental involvement in the running and ee of the
broadcasting network.

“The companies envisage a. model which" partners with the
Government of the Bahamas, and with the people of the
Bahamas, with a mandate to meet the cultural, educational,
informational and economic needs of the people based on
interest and not profit.

“Ideally, a quasi-PSB model, with government appropriation

on the private sector and an “uptick” in
economic activity.

“Until that happens, it will be a

struggle keeping things together,” Mr
Smith said. Asked about the signifi-
cance of the current deficit and debt-to-
GDP ratios, he added: “They have sig-
nificance in terms of uncertainty like
we’re going through now.

“Tf there is an urgent need to go to
the market for money - we’re in a hur-
ricane zone, and God forbid there is an
unexpected event - but we’d need some
headroom to make a soft landing for
the economy. We’re using up that
headroom to deal with unexpected
events rapidly, and I suspect the Gov-
ernment is aware of that.”

Unveiling his Mid-Year Budget
statement in the House of Assembly,
Prime Minister Hubert Ingraham
blamed "weaker than expected eco-
nomic performance in the first half and

continuing administrative weakness-

es" for the Government's failure to hit ©

its $668.4 million recurrent revenue
target for the July 1-December 31,
2010, period. The total revenue figure,
instead, came in at $584.1 million.

"The principal shortfalls in forecast- .

ed revenue occurred in respect of
import duties and export duties, at
$30.5 million, and Stamp Tax at $43, 1
million," Mr Ingraham said. "The latter
largely reflected Stamp Tax weakness
in respect of real property transactions
over $250,000."

The Government's salvation this fis-.

cal year, though, will be the one-off
revenue boosts it receives from taxes
collected on major commercial trans-
actions. Apart from the $217 million

Scotiabank-led consortium to Baha Mar was rarely out of the
news last year, as it represented an obstacle to the Chinese
financing of the $2.6 billion resort project proceeding until
the two parties were able to thrash out a settlement in
negotiations in New York.

The deal resulted in a ‘debt-for-equity’ swap, with Sco-
tiabank (Bahamas) taking an equity stake in the Baha Mar
project in return for accepting a repayment that was less than
the full amount owed.

The bank will now be hoping that the work done by Baha
Mar and China State Construction will result in the creation
of a profitable world-class destination resort facility that

sees Scotiabank earn a return on its equity, and gets its.
money back. At the moment, given that Baha Mar has only

just started construction, the value of that equity stake is
effectively zero, hence the writedown.

Robert Sands, Baha Mar's vice-president of external and
government affairs, last year said Baha Mar was now 88 per
cent owned by the Izmirlian family, led by Sarkis Izmirilan,
with Scotiabank having taken a 12 per cent minority inter-
est as a result of negotiations with Baha Mar over the out-
standing $200 million debt it owed. The China State Con-
struction and Engineering Corporation has invested $150
million in "non-convertible" preference shares in the project.

Elsewhere, Scotiabank (Bahamas) operating income
dropped by 6.5 per cent in 2010 to $142.683 million, com-
pared to $152.676 million the previous year. This was large-
ly due to a more than $19 million fallin interest income to
$126.454 million, compared to $145. 644 million, a drop of
13.2 per cent.

continual taxpayer funding “for the foreseeable future”,

Although the sums due to NIB and the BCB employee :

debt the BCB also owes to the Bahamas Electricity Cor- :

these.
Describing the 2010- 2011 Budget’s provision of $4.25 mil-

lion in taxpayer funding for the BCB as “too low”, its
response to URCA said: “In 2010, the Corporation’s adver- ;

would include a Takeover

it implemented the suspen-

Finlayson and his Trans-

produce a Bid Circular, a

It could also affect how
companies that rely on those
numbers, such as home

improvement stores, use the
reports for things like how
many people to hire and
where to expand.

Prices and sales of previ-
ously occupied homes have
painted a grim picture of that
portion of the housing mar-
ket, which — historically
accounts for roughly 85 per-
cent of home sales.

Housing prices in all but
one of the 20 cities tracked
by the Standard &
Poor's/Case Shiller index fell
in December from Novyem- -
ber. Eleven of the markets —
stretching from Seattle to
Miami — hit their lowest
point since the housing bub-
ble burst in 2006 and 2007.

Sales of previously occu-
pied homes rose slightly last
month. But the seasonally
adjusted annual pace of 5.36
million is still far below the 6
million homes a year needed
to maintain a healthy market.

CAIRO — Libya's oil chief said pro-

cent, and argued it was "safe" for for-
eign oil workers to return after a mass
exodus sparked by Moammar Gadhafi's

* increasingly violent campaign to retain

The assurances by Shukri Ghanem,
the head of the state-run National Oil
Co. and Libya's de facto oil minister,

‘and who was actually in control of the

brunt of the nation's oil. Libya sits atop
Africa's largest proven reserves.

BEIJING — China's leadership is
promising to steer the economy in anew
direction in its blueprint for the next five
years that would empower consumers
and narrow a yawning wealth gap but
require politically contentious reforms.

LONDON — Stabilizing oil prices fol-
lowing reports that Libyan rebels are

‘willing to restart crude exports helped

ease market concerns that the global
recovery would be brought to a standstill
by sky-high energy costs.

Crude oil traded at about $98 a barrel
on the New York Mercantile Exchange,
while the Brent rate in London fetched
around $112 a barrel.

At the height of the markets' concerns
over Libya last week, New York crude
had risen over $102 a barrel and Brent °
had advanced towards $120.

The decline in oil prices helped boost
sentiment in Europe's stock markets.

* Germany's DAX closed up 1.2 per-

cent while the: CAC-40 in Paris rose 1

The FTSE 100 index of leading British
shares ended 0:1 percent lower after

ed investors by warning that new capital
rules would hurt earnings this year.

METALS PRICES INCREASE ON
POSITIVE SIGNS FOR ECONOMY

NEW YORK



Prices rose Monday for metals used in manufacturing as
new reports suggested the U.S. economy is improving. Sil-
ver, palladium, platinum and copper all settled higher.

The gains are based ona Commerce Department report ,
that says consumer incomes rose last month by the largest-
amount in nearly two years, thanks partly to a tax cut.. How-
ever, Americans still are being careful about their spending.

Also, a measure of business strength in the Chicago area
hit the highest level since July 1988. The Chicago Business
Barometer showed more new orders coming in, improving
employment and order backlogs.

The developments left many traders more confident about
economic growth despite ongoing clashes in the oil-rich
regions of Middle East and North Africa. "Many have tak-
en the view that ... higher oil prices will likely lead to tem-
pered economic recovery instead of a total derailment of
economic recovery," CPM Group analyst oor Sanchez
said.

Silver, platinum, palladium and copper are hed in man-
ufacturing goods including eno housing materials
and automobiles. —

Delivery

Silver for May delivery rose 89.7 cents to settle at $33.82
an ounce.

In other metals contracts, March copper added 4.2 cents
to settle at $4.478 a pound, June palladium gained $12 to
$799.60 an ounce, April platinum rose $5.80 to $1,809.20 an
ounce and April gold added 60 cents to $1,409.90 an ounce.

Oil prices, meanwhile, settled slightly lower as government

_-and industry officials reported that Libya is still exporting

some crude and that leader Moammar Gadhafi has lost .
control of many of the country's oil fields.

Benchmark oil for March delivery fell 91 cents to settle at
$96.97 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange.

In other Nymex trading in March contracts, heating oil fell
0.66 cent to settle at $2.9389 per gallon, gasoline lost 1.59
cents to $2.8927 per gallon and natural gas added 3.2 cents
to $4.037 per 1,000 cubic feet. Grains and beans were mixed.
In May contracts, wheat rose 5.75 cents to settle at $8.17 a
bushel, corn gained 9 cents to $7.31 a bushel and soybeans
fell 10.25 cents to $13.6475 a bushel.

GOP HOPEFULS CHEER FOR :

Bachmann also blamed Democrats for fears: of a shutdown. ;
"That's a bugaboo that the liberals right now are trying to :

and Republicans demanding deep cuts, the situation gives :
‘would-be White House contenders a chance to earn the public's :
attention at a point when their campaigns are still coming :

together.
And no one ever lost votes by criticizing Washington.

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney blames Obama for

"frightening new levels of federal spending and deficits."

"I've never seen an enterprise in more desperate need of a
turnaround than the U.S. government," Romney said. "A vote:
on raising the debt ceiling has to be accompanied by a major :

effort to restructure and reduce the size of government." '

Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, a White House budget director :
for President George W. Bush, said Republicans should extract :
"eight pounds of flesh in the form of major spending cuts" as :
part of any deal to raise the $14. 3 trillion ceiling on the gov- :

ernment's debt.

Barbour points to GOP governors' records’ balancing their
states' books, noting that he cut Mississippi's spending by 9.4 :

percent last year.

_. But Barbour also supports raising the debt ceiling. "Ameri-
ca would suffer enormous consequences," he said in a recent :
interview with Fox News. "The dollar is the currency of the :

world; it won't be if we default."

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, who is poised to }
begin a White House bid in the coming weeks, encouraged law- :
makers to raise the debt limit — but not without first extract- i
ing the spending cuts they promised during the midterm elec- :
tions. "Another shutdown of the federal government is not :
an ideal result, but for House Republicans, breaking their :
word would be far worse," he wrote over the weekend in an ;

opinion piece for The Washington Post.

Gingrich is well aware of a similar faceoff with a Democra-
tic White House that resulted in the government shutdowns in }
1995. At the time, President Bill Clinton blamed the shutdown }

on Republicans and marched toward re-election a year later.

automakers have been counting on
emerging economies, especially China,
for major growth. But news that the
once-galloping economy is slowing down,
even to an enviable 7 percent, could

-cause companies like Volkswagen and

BMW some worry.

Still, automakers are showing opti-
mism coming into Geneva, evident in
the rollouts planned. After seeing par-

ticipants scale back in recent years, orga-

nizers said they had requests for more
show space than they could provide, and
that 70 brands will be represented from
31 countries.

Gerieva's motor show, which focuses
primarily on European companies, is
considered one of the more prestigious

‘ auto events of the year.

And because it is based in industry-
neutral Switzerland, which does not pro-

ates an even playing field for German,
French and Italian companies alike, not
to mention a rare venue for Asian
automakers like Tata to show cars out-

i lar against six other currencies, fell to 76.92, its lowest point
since early November. .
i The euro rose to $1.3800 late Monday from $1.3741 Friday,
i while the pound gained to $1.6267 from $1.6098. The.dollar sf
: edged up to 81.77 Japanese yen from 81.71 yen. ° _
i A speech by a Fed official Monday underscored the view of °°
: the U.S. central bank as less anxious about inflation risks in the rol
i U.S. economy. William C. Dudley, the vice chairman of the _
i Fed's rate-setting committee, said in a speech in New York that =
: the Fed was "still very far away" from helping the U.S. economy ie
} reach a normal level of employment and price stability, and that
i "faster progress toward these objectives ... need not require an
: early change in the stance of monetary policy." Reacting to the ,¢
: recent global jump in food and energy costs, he said that it,
i would be "unwise" for the Fed to "overreact" to the recent rise ;;;,
: ? in commodity prices.
son : A report from the government Monday showed that price 5:1:
aa en i pressures remain tame in the broader economy. The Com- uc
Siena merce Department said consumers increased spending by just ‘i¢
: 0.2 percent last month despite a 1 percent gain in personal
: incomes — the largest income gain in nearly two years. |) »?
