COPS QUESTION EX

Former boyfriend quizzed over missing Kerran

Page 13

Christmas comes very early

Gabrielle Myers and Tad Stoner Police have questioned an exboyfriend of Kerran Natalee Baker in connection with her Saturday disappearance, as divers scour the area between Pedro Castle and East End. Toney-Ann Anthony, 18, Ms Baker’s sister, told iNews that one of her sister’s former boyfriends was “obsessive, manipulative and apparently a liar,” repeatedly pestering the family, seeking to interfere in her engagement and threatening to hurt himself if he could not “have her”. After extensive questioning, she said, he told her he had left the police station “at 5am on Monday morning”, While officers declined to confirm the interrogation, Chief Inspector Angelique Howell said “every person brought to our attention, any person that had any contact with her [Ms Baker}, we have spoken to.” Ms Anthony described several conversations, as recently as Wednesday.

TIPS AND ADVICE

Baby Jordan’s surgery plight

THE “CHECK ENGINE LIGHT” TELLS YOU THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH YOUR CARʼS ENGINE AND POWERTRAIN CONTROL SYSTEM.

Ivy Lichtenstein

A FLASHING LIGHT indicates a problem that is currently happening and MAY REQUIRE IMMEDIATE ATTENTION, whereas a STEADY LIGHT can be DIAGNOSED AT THE FIRST CONVENIENT OPPORTUNITY. Testing and diagnostics may be required to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem. Questions to ask when your “check engine light” goes on include the following: 1. Does the light mean that my car needs a tune-up? 2. Is it normal for the light to come on briefly when I start my car? 3. Will my car pass an emmissions test if the light is on? 4. When checking out the cause of the light, are there any other services that need to be performed at the same time?

Baby Jordan with mom Alexa and dad Michael

Baby Jordan Campbell Binckes is desperate for life saving open-heart surgery before his tiny world falls apart. At just a few weeks old the battling newborn is clinging on to his life as his anxious parents wait at his crib-side. The surgery can be carried out – but at a cost. And now friends of the family have pledged to raise enough money to send the child to Miami for urgent medical treatment. Tonight at Lone Star on Seven Mile Beach, where Jordan’s mother worked, a silent auction will be held to help pay for the little boy’s operation.

5 August 2011 | www.ieyenews.com

Jordan was born two weeks ago with a congenital heart defect that changes the normal flow of blood through his major organ. And it’s imperative the surgery is carried out quickly before the defect gets progressively worse. Yesterday his father, Michael, praised the people of Cayman for the help and support they have received so far. Mr Binckes said: “We are incredibly humbled by all the help we are getting. “No big city in the world would give us the help and support that we are receiving from the people of the Cayman Islands. “It lets us realise what a special place Cayman really is. It is amazing to see everyone pull together to help us, even people we don’t know. “Jordan is currently on medication and is a very happy little guy and doing all the things he should be but feeding tires him out. “As he grows and his body gets bigger the situation will progressively get worse as there will be a bigger need for oxygen. That is why it is so important to get the surgery done as soon as we can.” The heart has two sides, separated by an inner wall called the septum, with each heartbeat the right side of the heart receives oxygen-poor blood from

the body and pumps it to the lungs. The left side of the heart receives oxygen-rich blood from the lungs and pumps it to the body. The septum prevents mixing of blood between the two sides of the heart. However, some babies are born with holes in the upper or lower septum called Atrial Septal Defect (ASD) and Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD). Jordan was born with both complaints and experts say he will need surgery within the next eight weeks. Tonight’s event at Lone Star will hopefully raise money towards the ever-creasing medical costs. Scott McLean, one of the managers at the Bar and Grill said: “The entire staff at Lone Star has become incredibly close to Alexa over the past few months. “She, in our eyes is the definition of a happy person. Knowing her and Michael for the short time that we have, we in our hearts believe that no persons on this planet will be better parents.” Alexa, Mother, was working at the Lone Star Bar and Grill until Jordan was born. Tonight’s event starts at 7pm and includes a live DJ. Anyone interested in supporting or donating items for the auction should contact the bar on 945 5175.

iStrange Man arrested for cutting tree PITTSBURGH (AP) — A Pittsburgh man has been arrested after police say he cut down a city-owned tree, which the man claims contributes to basement flooding. Thirty-nine-year-old David Harper is charged with criminal mischief and possessing an instrument of crime — his neighbour’s chainsaw. Police tell WTAE-TV that they charged Harper on Thursday after he cut the sidewalk tree nearly in half. Harper told them he hated the tree because it buckled the sidewalk, causing rain water to flow into his basement.

Remorseful thief returns woman’s items PLAISTOW, N.H. (AP) — Police say an apparently remorseful thief who stole a woman’s wallet in a New Hampshire supermarket showed up at her door days later to return $90 and a GPS, and brought along an apology letter. The wallet was stolen from the 61-year-old woman’s cart on July 18 in Plaistow. Her wallet was found at a Massachusetts post office. Then on July 26, the victim heard a knock on her door. A man said he was sorry, returned her belongings, gave her the long letter and fled.

Canadian Government signs deal over two new airport projects Paul Kennedy

Premier Hon. McKeeva Bush has formed a strategic alliance with the Canadian Government to redevelop Owen Roberts International Airport. Talks will be held between Bush and the Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) to establish a plan of action that also includes major work at the Gerrard-Smith International Airport on Cayman Brac. The CCC, the contracting agency of the Government of Canada, have a six month exclusive deal to conduct due diligence and develop a proposal for the construction and concession agreements for the projects. The move – announced by Bush at the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday, dismisses previous suggestions the work would be carried out by the Chinese. Similar agreements have been signed with the China Harbour Company to redevelop the cruise ship terminal and Spotts Jetty. It was understood they were inline to win the contract for the airport projects until this latest Memorandum of Understanding was signed with Canada. Mr Bush said: “This mutually beneficial cooperation will stimulate stronger ties between our countries while allowing our Government access to Canadian expertise and capabilities. “I am pleased to announce that the Cayman Islands Airport Authority has signed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding with the Canadian Commercial Corporation to establish

a framework for discussions in relation to the re-development of Owen Roberts International Airport on Grand Cayman and GerrardSmith International Airport on Cayman Brac. “The Corporation has been granted the exclusive right, for a period of six months, commencing August 1, 2011, and subject to mutually agreed extensions, to conduct due diligence and develop a proposal for the construction and concession agreements in respect of the redevelopment of these

airport projects.” Mr Bush also pledged that Caymanian Companies and local labour will be used as part of the deal. And he said he hopes work will start on the projects by 2012. He added: “As part of this MOU, the Corporation will utilize the services of Canadian Technical companies whose financial and managerial capabilities have been subjected to due diligence by the Canadian Government. “Caymanian Companies and labour will of course be utilized. “The Cayman Islands Government in conjunction with the Cayman Islands Airport Authority will now enter into the process and dialogue with the Canadian Commercial Corporation to facilitate the successful completion of negotiations that could result in the commencement of the redevelopment of our two international airports in 2012.” The CCC is midway through constructing the new Quito International Airport in Ecuador.

So... What really is an Android? Claire O’Dea

One of the most recent additions to the Tech Dictionary is “Android” which can be easily defined as “an operating software”. Like Apple’s iOS, Android operating software focuses on efficiency and enhancing the features of mobile devices such as cell phones and tablets. In 2005, Android, an infant company, was acquired by Google and has since produced a flexible, upgradeable system. The debut Android platform phone, the ‘HTC Dream’, was released in 2008. As consumer awareness grew, 2010 was a year of great successes for Android, mainly attributable to HTC’s collaboration with Google and launching its flagship Android device, the ‘Nexus One’, and Samsung releasing the ‘Nexus-S’. Since the original version of the software in 2007, many features have been added to enhance performance, functionality and user-friendliness. Android’s open source nature (anyone has access to the coding) has resulted in companies and individuals developing many innovative applications. The Android Market (application store run by Google) now has over 200,000 applications which have contributed significantly to the extended functionality of the devices. Android’s multitasking capabilities, customization, performance and open source platform are the main contributors to this system’s rapid growth. It has gained much popularity among developers and has proved a huge success in the Smartphone market. It is expected that Android will further establish brand image and awareness and continue to prove very successful in the highly competitive Smartphone market.

Brac affordable homes on track

Twelve more affordable houses are to be built on Cayman Brac. The Sister Islands Affordable Housing Development Corporation (SIAHDC) will apply for planning approval this week, to build eight homes at the West End site and four at Watering Place, said Board Chairman Christine Maltman. Publishing the application forms and other documents as well as contacting applicants who have already submitted applications will follow. Working closely with the Ministry of District Administration, Works, Land and Agriculture, SIAHDC is preparing documents for the construction tendering process while the housing administrator’s post has been advertised. “We are on track to begin construction.” Ms. Maltman noted.

Expressing pleasure at the progress of this third construction phase, Minister the Hon. Juliana O’Connor-Connolly, JP said, “I laud the board and Ms. Maltman for staying focused so that construction of affordable housing on Cayman Brac can re-start soon.” During the December 2008 and April 2010 construction phases, a total of eight homes were completed. The Minister emphasised that her ministry continues to promote individual home-ownership at the best possible cost. “Given the context of current global economic conditions, I am delighted the board has risen to the challenge of providing construction under prudent financial management,” she commented. Contact details: SIAHDC’s office is located in the Avistar Building III,

They had been suffering from Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome. Unfortunately a few hours later Jake passed away. Freddy is a little fighter and currently being treated in Florida.

Kerran’s distraught parents, Wilmot Anthony and Sarah Anthony, at Thursday’s press conference. “I spoke with him three times [Wednesday], “ Ms Anthony said. “He said he saw her [last week on] Thursday and Saturday. He saw her at 12:30pm when she was leaving work. The last time he spoke with her was at 7:30pm, after she left the supermarket, which is strange. “Based on the conversations, he was manipulative and obsessive. He cut keys to her house and car,” she said. “One time she and her friends were at her house and he came up and opened the door and went in,” Ms Anthony said. “He tried to break up her engagement. I never met him but I know him. He has a son with my aunts’ friend. My parents have met him.” Ms Baker was last seen publicly at 7pm on Saturday as she entered Fosters Food Fair near the airport. Groceries were subsequently found on her kitchen counter during a Sunday police search of her premises. “Saturday was the last time our mom spoke to her. She had sent money for me a few days before and was saying the money should be here [Jamaica],” Ms Anthony said.

“We last talked on Thursday via email and text,” she said of her sister. After he was questioned, the former boyfriend was released by police without charge. Chief Inspector John Jones said police “had no one in custody, have not arrested anyone”, and conceded “we are not any closer. No one has come forward with any assistance after the Foster’s at 7pm on Saturday night.” Meanwhile, Ms Baker’s parents, Sarah Anthony and Wilmot Anthony, pleaded for any information. Verging on tears, Mrs Anthony said “I am begging the people of the Cayman Islands, please, if you see, hear or know anything”, to come forward. “This is my first child and I am here to know what went wrong, to know where she is. I am her mother. She is my child, Please someone tell me something. I need her,” she said. Mr Anthony, a Cayman Islands’ tour-bus driver and employee at Hurley’s between 1999 and March this year, echoed the remarks. “Everyone knows I’m her daddy,” he said, “and 95% of the people

here know me. Put yourself in our position. If you know or see anything call me. If you are scared to talk to the police, talk to me. “It is now five days going on six, and we can’t eat, we can’t sleep. I am hoping for the best, but bracing for the worst,” he said, offering his telephone number. Detective Inspector Marlon Bodden said police had expanded their search as marine units and divers scoured the area between Pedro Castle, where a bloodstain on the rocky shoreline and Ms Baker’s car and keys were found, and East End. While saying evidence was still under forensic examination, he virtually conceded that police had accepted the waterfront bloodstain belonged to Ms Baker. “We are back in the water,” he said, “and looking at the drift pattern, the ebb and flow of the tides, so there is a lot of work going on. We cannot underestimate that activity with the depth of the currents, which present a significant risk to officers. We are leaving no stone unturned.”

The Editor Speaks

Am I the only one confused? Colin Wilson We reported yesterday (4) that no work has started on the Spotts Jetty and has been delayed indefinitely. Premier McKeeva Bush reversed his earlier statements that said a start on the jetty would be made late July. “We are waiting for final contracts and some plans to be finalised,” he said. The China Harbour Engineering Company (CHEC), the chief contractor for the $3 million project, told us they hadn’t even submitted construction plans. That seems a long way from being ‘finalized.’ Also yesterday, Mr. Bush announced in the Legislative Assembly (LA) that the Canadian Commercial Corporation (Canada’s official international contracting agency) would find Canadian companies with the capabilities to take on the project of redeveloping the Owen Robert’s airport. We were all led to believe before this announcement that CHEC would be executing

this work. Mr. Bush also announced in the LA that this Canadian Corp. had signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Cayman Islands Airports Authority (CIAA). When asked by the opposition when the MOU would be a public document the premier said, “I don’t know. It was signed by the CIAA. I’m just a humble minister.” He also intimated that the CIAA might never release the document as it might contain sensitive material. As for the speculation that CHEC instigated by comments he himself had made, Mr. Bush said, “There never was an agreement.” Unfortunately, it is all these confusing statements and secrecy issues that gives rise to most of the negative blogs and comments expressed by an ever-increasing skeptical public.

Tropical Storm drenches Haiti, Dominican Republic PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (AP) — Tropical Storm Emily hovered off the south coast of Haiti on Thursday, causing flooding, damaging hundreds of homes and threatening greater misery for multitudes living in tent camps or the flood-prone countryside. The storm’s heavy rains prompted the government of the neighboring Dominican Republic to move at least 1,600 people because of the threat of flooding and mudslides. Emily dropped more than 5 inches (140 millimeters) around the southwestern Dominican city of Barahona and an equal amount was still expected in the area, said Miguel Campusano, a forecaster with the Dominican meteorology office. In Haiti, about 600,000 people are still in flimsy tents and shanties because of the January 2010 earthquake, strong winds whipped through palm trees in the capital while heavier rains fell further north, damaging homes as well as a cholera treatment center, said Marie Alta Jean-Baptiste, the country’s civil defense director. But there

were no reports of deaths. In the capital, which has most of those left homeless by the earthquake, the rain was relatively light so far, but the government evacuated a few families from a camp for quake victims to a school that is being used as a storm shelter, said Jean-Joseph Edgard, an administrator in Haiti’s Civil Protection Department. The storm seemed to pause Thursday morning, then resumed a slow march to the west-northwest off the coast of the island Haiti shares with the Dominican Republic, and

forecasters said they expected it to hit Haiti later in the day. Emily had maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (85 kph). Forecasters said the storm was likely to cross eastern Cuba on Friday and might touch Florida on Saturday, though the projected track would keep its center offshore. John Cangialosi, a hurricane specialist with the hurricane center, said up to 20 inches of rain was possible in isolated high-elevation areas. That is enough to cause serious problems in a country prone to catastrophic flooding.

29,000 children killed in Somalia famine NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — The drought and famine in Somalia have killed more than 29,000 children under the age of 5, according to U.S. estimates, the first time such a precise death toll has been released related to the Horn of Africa crisis. The United Nations has said previously that tens of thousands of people have died in the drought, the worst in Somalia in 60 years. The U.N. says 640,000 Somali children are acutely malnourished, a statistic that suggests the death toll of small children will rise. Nancy Lindborg, an official with

the U.S. government aid arm, told a congressional committee in Washington on Wednesday that the U.S. estimates that more than 29,000 children under the age of five have died in the last 90 days in southern Somalia. That number is based on nutrition and mortality surveys verified by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The U.N. on Wednesday declared three new regions in Somalia famine zones, bringing the total number to five. Out of a population of roughly 7.5 million, the U.N. says 3.2 million Somalis are in need of immediate

lifesaving assistance. Tens of thousands of refugees have fled south-central Somalia in hopes of finding food at camps in Ethiopia, Kenya and in Mogadishu, the Somali capital.

Wear Yuh Colours on Jamaican Independence Day! Gabrielle Myers and Kevin Creary

“A people without knowledge of their past history, origin, are like a tree without roots.” - Marcus Garvey Jamaica gained their independence from the British colonial rule fortynine years ago, on August 6th in 1962 after 307 years of British rule. However, even with their independence, Jamaica still remains a member of the Commonwealth of Nations. Jamaica slowly started gaining increasing independence from the United Kingdom in 1958. The first steps for this were becoming a province in the Federation of the West Indies and then a Federation among the British West Indies. The Jamaica National Flag was first raised on Independence Day, August 6, 1962 and it signifies the birth of the nation. The flag brings to mind memories of past achievements and gives inspiration towards further success. It is flown on many triumphant occasions, showing the pride that Jamaicans have in their country and in the flag itself. “The sun shineth, the land is green and the people are strong and creative” is the symbolism of the colours of the flag. Black depicts the strength and creativity of the people; Gold, the natural wealth and beauty of sunlight; and green, hope and agricultural resources. The civic pride and embrace of African ancestry among Jamaican natives was ignited by the teachings

Mrs. Elaine Harris, Vice Consul and Dr. Marzouca, Honorary Jamaican Consul to the Cayman islands. of a “civil rights activist” named Marcus Mossiah Garvey, who said: “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture, is like a tree without roots.” Much of the wisdom and teachings of Marcus Garvey have been preserved and permeated through the life and works of Robert Nester Marley, (aka) Bob Marley.

about Jamaica’s cultural diversity and promoting and highlighting the cultural ties between Jamaica and the Cayman Islands. Dr. Marzouca, Honorary Jamaican Consul to the Cayman islands: “We are very excited about the celebration of unity between the two countries, it is not just a Jamaican celebration, it is also a way in which the Jamaicans say thanks to the Cayman Islands for opening up their doors to us allowing us to come here and make a living. We observe with admiration the way the Caymanians work together with the Jamaicans and support the entire Jamaican community. We are excited about the 49 years, next year will be the golden year of the fiftieth anniversary.” Mrs. Elaine Harris, Vice Consul: “The celebration has been successful in the past and it was always well received over the years, peaceful and well attended. The idea of the event is to have a free, family oriented celebration for all to come out and attend. “It will celebrate and showcase the Jamaican Heritage and Culture.” kevin.creary@ieyenews.com gabrielle.myers@ieyenews.com

Opponents vow to fight Emerald project DIVISION OF QUALITY COMMODITIES LTD.

Construction & Fine Finish

CALL 926-4415 Emerald Sound opponents said yesterday they would appeal Thursday’s official approval for the multi-million-dollar housing development, and would try to persuade Cabinet to refuse the project. Speaking after the Central Planning Authority (CPA) nod to the canal-side 81-house development in South Sound Road, Katrina Jurn, a member of the 200-member ProtectSouthSound group said the decision was “very disappointing, but not shocking”. Lamenting the “narrow focus” of the decision, which opponents claim threatens the area with flooding and pollution, Ms Jurn said they would approach the Planning Appeals Tribunal in hopes of reversing yesterday’s approval. “ProtectSouthSound is working on behalf of 1,100 objectors [to the plan]. We have high hopes that Cabinet will deny an application for a coastal works licence, and while the Central Planning Authority looks at extremely narrow criteria, the Cabinet is people we elect to represent our interests. They will look at the wider impact and at the environment,” she said. A Wednesday-morning gathering of the 13-member panel heard arguments from representatives of the objectors and from Emerald Sound architect Burns Conolly and developer R.C. Estates Ltd chief Rene Hislop.

5 August 2011 | www.ieyenews.com

Burns Conolly A press release yesterday from The Burns Conolly Group said R.C. Estates “understands from the Planning Department that the application before the CPA on August 3 has been approved”. “The low-density development of approximately 81 single-family home lots and 160 apartments, presented a detailed submission to the CPA reviewing all of the objectors concerns and commented ion government reviews of the project as well,” the release said. The controversial proposal is for a series of 6-foot-deep canals winding among a series of homes, an apartment block and marina, set on 90 landscaped acres raised eight feet above sea level and surrounded by drainage facilities and an access channel cut through South Sound Road to open water. The road will be moved 80 feet

inland, providing jogging and bicycling paths, while a bridge will cross the new channel. Objections to the project, initially proposed at least five years ago, pinpoint flooding and storm-surge risks, inadequate flushing of the canals, insufficient drainage, and waters fouled by run-off, pollution and increased boat traffic. A series of meetings by various opposition groups such as ILoveCayman and ProtectSouthSound have been countered by Mr Conolly’s own efforts to explain the project and mitigate public concerns. After yesterday’s CPA approval, he told iNews that he would start detailed design work. Construction would start as soon as Planning officials panel gave the nod to R.C. Estates. “We now go into the detailed design phase and meeting any CPA requirements,” he said. “We can begin construction immediately. We will have to await the Planning Department’s approval to begin.” He declined to say how much the development would cost or how many jobs would be created, saying only that “significant infrastructural works of building a new road and bridge would cost “millions of dollars” and yield “over CI$45 million to government in direct fees and import duties over the next 10 years tad.stoner@ieyenews.com

Santa Claus is coming…in summer? Christopher Tobutt The Ballroom at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort was the venue for Celebrations last month with a ‘Christmas In July,’ exhibition of different themed Christmas décor. Celebrations’ Event Planner, Jessica Bodden said, “Celebrations are working together with the Marriott to display rental items and different themes, either for Christmas or for all events all year round. We have Crystal Christmas, Tropical Haven and Romantic Splendor here on display.” she said. Crystal Christmas felt cool - even in summer in the Cayman Islands. There were large spheres, each glowing with a blue light, and an all blue Christmas tree. Four of the blue balls were grouped together, with a sheet of glass on the top to form what looked like a table made of ice. White

sofas grouped around the table completed the cold frost and snow feeling. In contrast, the other part of the ballroom was filled with rich, warm reds and oranges. “This is the Romantic Splendor theme– there’s lace overlays and lots of roses and red candlelight.” Ms Bodden explained. There was also a more modern twist on the traditional Christmas feel. “Instead of using our regular chairs, we used our lounge seats covered in orange material.” Ms. Bodden said. Little orange trees too in the background, gave the traditional Christmas décor that tropical twist. The third theme, Tropical Haven, seemed to be the ideal outside arrangement - a large framework made of bamboo enclosed a long dining table. christopher.tobutt.ieyenews.com

Tech entrepreneurs announce launch of Sand Dollar Studios Body Sand Dollar Studios Ltd announces its arrival as Cayman’s newest web design firm. Sand Dollar Studios is managed by Gregg Anderson and David Ward, two seasoned entrepreneurs with strong Internet and technology backgrounds. Although Sand Dollar Studios is new to Cayman, David has provided web design and consulting services to some of the world’s most well known brands, including Ghirardelli Chocolate Company, Donna Karan & DKNY Home, Adrienne Vittadini, Judith Leiber, Looserkids, and many more. “I am really excited to bring my knowledge and experience to Cayman to help grow business on the Island,” said David Ward, President of Sand Dollar Studios. “There is a large opportunity for both local and tourism businesses to use the web to increase their sales. Consumers are

14

using the Internet more than ever to research products and services, and they are judging the quality of what you offer based on your website.” Gregg Anderson, Sand Dollar Studios’ CEO, is no stranger to technology. After a diverse career that involved building the Caribbean’s largest telecommunications infrastructure, Gregg has partnered in several entrepreneurial ventures on Cayman including his own management and consulting firm. With his specialties in business strategy, operations, financial analysis, sales and marketing, and start-ups, Gregg and Dave will make a powerful team. “With the economy suffering, there has actually never been a better time to invest in your website, search engine optimisation, or social media strategy. With fewer tourists coming to Cayman, it’s imperative to make sure they are finding your

business when they search online.” said Gregg. While there are a handful of design firms on Cayman, none have the experienced team that Sand Dollar Studios has. “With over 15 years working with the web, I can confidently say that there are few others with the background I have. I’ve managed hundreds of website launches, helped build website software systems from the ground up, worked with dozens of popular third-party and open source web software systems, and developed social media and search strategies for small and large businesses around the world.” said David. “Together with Gregg’s enterprise, small business, and technological background, we can offer Cayman companies more than our competitors.” For more information, visit their website, at www.sanddollarstudios.com.

iBooks We continue our serialisation of Anne by Constance Fenimore Woolson

Anne

“There is no danger; she is not pretty enough”

Part 17 It was noticeable, however, that the daughters thought otherwise. Near the doorway in the shadow a crowd of Indians had gathered, while almost all of the common soldiers from the fort, on one pretext or another, were in the hall, attending to the fires and lights, or acting as self-appointed police. Even Chaplain Gaston looked in for a moment, and staid an hour; and later in the evening the tall form of Père Michaux appeared, clad in a furred mantle, a black silk cap crowning his silver hair. Tita immediately left her place and went to meet him, bending her head with an air of deep reverence. “See the child—how theatrical!” said Mrs. Cromer. “Yes. Still, the Romanists do believe in all kinds of amusements, and even ask a blessing on it,” said the lieutenant’s wife. “It was not that—it was the little air and attitude of devoutness that I meant. See the puss now!” But the puss was triumphant at last. One of the younger officers had noted her solemn little salutation in front of the priest, and now approached to ask her to dance, curious to see what manner of child this small creature could be. In another moment she was whirling down the hall with him, her dark face flushed, her eyes radiant, her dancing exquisitely light and exact. She passed Anne and Rast with a sparkling glance, her small breast throbbing with a swell of satisfied vanity that almost stopped her breath. “There is Tita,” said the elder sister, rather anxiously. “I hope Mr. Walters will not spoil her with his flattery.” “There is no danger; she is not pretty enough,” answered Rast. A flush rose in Anne’s face. “You do not like my little sister,” she said. “Oh, I do not dislike her,” said Rast. “I could not dislike anything that belonged to

5 August 2011 | www.ieyenews.com

You,” he added, in a lower tone. She smiled as he bent his handsome head toward her to say this. She was fond of Rast; he had been her daily companion through all her life; she scarcely remembered anything in which he was not concerned, from her first baby walk in the woods back of the fort, her first ride in a dog-sledge on the ice, to yesterday’s consultation over the chapel evergreens. The six French fiddlers played on; they knew not fatigue. In imagination they had danced every dance. Tita was taken out on the floor several times by the officers, who were amused by her little airs and her small elfish face: she glowed with triumph. Anne had but few invitations, save from Rast; but as his were continuous, she danced all the evening. At midnight Miss Lois and the Misses Macdougall formally rose, and the fort ladies sent for their wrappings: the ball, as far as the first circle was concerned, was ended. But long afterward the sound of the fiddles was still heard, and it was surmised that the second circle was having its turn, possibly not without a sprinkling of the third also. Dr. Gaston sat in his library, studying a chess problem. His clerical coat was old and spotted, his table was of rough wood, the floor uncarpeted; by right, Poverty should have made herself prominent there. But she did not. Perhaps she liked the old chaplain, who showed a fine, amply built person under her reign, with florid complexion, bright blue eyes, and a curly brown wig—very different in aspect from her usual lean and dismal retinue; perhaps, also, she stopped here herself to warm her cold heart now and then in the hot, bright, crowded little room, which was hers by right, although she did not claim it, enjoying it, however, as a miserly money-lender enjoys the fine house over which he holds a mortgage, rubbing his

hands exultingly, as, clad in his thin old coat, he walks by. Certainly the plastering had dropped from the walls here and there; there was no furniture save the tables and shelves made by the island carpenter, and one old leathern armchair, the parson’s own, a miracle of comfort, age, and hanging leather tatters. But on the shelves and on the tables, on the floor and on the broad windowsills, were books; they reached the ceiling on the shelves; they wainscoted the walls to the height of several feet all round the room; small volumes were piled on the narrow mantel as far up as they could go without toppling over, and the tables were loaded also. Aisles were kept open leading to the door, to the windows, and to the hearth, where the ragged armchair stood, and where there was a small parade ground of open floor; but everywhere else the printed thoughts held sway. The old fire-place was large and deep, and here burned night and day, throughout the winter, a fire which made the whole room bright; add to this the sunshine streaming through the broad, low, uncurtained windows, and you have the secret of the cheerfulness in the very face of a barren lack of everything we are accustomed to call comfort.

Cancer prevention and early diagnosis From the offices of Dr. Addleson Dr Bella Beraha

The key to beating most cancers is early detection. If you have a concern, make an appointment to see your physician now. Various cancer screening tests can detect abnormalities before you may be able to notice them or before they begin to cause symptoms. Prevention strategies focus on modifying environmental and lifestyle risk factors which can promote cancer. 50 percent of cancers are preventable. The following are multiple cancer risk factors: TOBACCO USE Tobacco use is the most preventable cause of cancer, and accounts for 21 percent of worldwide total cancer deaths. Approximately onehalf of all smokers die of a tobacco related disease. Tobacco acts on multiple stages of carcinogenesis: it delivers carcinogens directly to tissues, causes irritation and inflammation, and interferes with the body’s natural protective barriers. Smoking cessation leads to reduced risk of most tobacco-related diseases and a decrease in all cause mortality. EXCESS SUN EXPOSURE Over 1 million cases of skin cancer, including basal cell and squamous cell carcinoma, are diagnosed each year. Radiation from the sun is the primary cause of both types of skin cancer. All individuals should limit the time spent in the sun, especially between the hours of 10 am and 3 pm, wear hats, sunglasses, and other protective clothing, and use sunscreen. Because the majority of lifetime sun exposure usually occurs during childhood and adolescence, protective behaviors early in life will provide the greatest benefit. PHYSICAL ACTIVITY Decreased physical activity appears to increase the risk for cancer. It is estimated that sedentary lifestyle is associated with 5 percent of cancer deaths

5 August 2011 | www.ieyenews.com

EXCESS WEIGHT Excess weight and obesity are associated with an increase in the risk of multiple cancers including colorectal, postmenopausal breast, endometrial, renal, and esophageal cancer. There are also direct links between obesity and the following cancers: pancreas, thyroid, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, leukemia, and myeloma. Obesity has been estimated to cause 20 percent of all cancers. ALCOHOL Excess alcohol consumption increases the risk of multiple cancers. INFECTION It is estimated that 17 percent of all new cancers worldwide are due to infections. Multiple links between viral agents and cancer have been established: • Human papillomavirus (HPV) with cervical and other anogenital cancers as well as squamous cell cancers of the head and neck • Hepatitis B (HBV) and C (HCV) with hepatocellular carcinoma • Human T-cell lymphotropic virus (HTLV-I) with adult T cell leukemia • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-I) with Kaposi sarcoma and non-Hodgkin lymphoma For some viruses, interventions are available to prevent or delay progression to cancer after infection. Cervical cancer screening has dramatically reduced the incidence of cervical cancer where screening is widely available. SCREENING METHODS AND RECOMMENDATIONS Most preventive screenings for cancers can be done during your routine annual physical at your GP’s office. Breast cancer — Women between the ages 40 to 75 years old should go for regular mammograms also this applies to younger women with family histories of cancer. It is suggested that all women undergo regular clinical breast examinations (CBE). Some breast cancers are not detected

by mammography; a positive CBE requires further investigation, even if the mammogram is negative. Cervical cancer: Screening for cervical cancer is routinely done by cytological examination (PAP smear).The best frequency of screening for cervical cancer is not clear, but for women with repeatedly negative findings, screening every 2 years is generally sufficient. Colorectal cancer: Regular screening should be initiated at age 50 for patients with an average risk for colorectal cancer, and earlier for those with increased risk. Several screening strategies are available, and guidelines differ somewhat in recommended testing, one of the most widely accepted being colonoscopy.Patients should participate in the decision of which test to undergo. Lung cancer: Avoidance and cessation of tobacco use could potentially reduce the incidence and mortality from lung cancer by about 90 percent. Prostate cancer: We suggest that screening be performed with prostate specific antigen (PSA) tests at least every 2 to 4 years. We suggest that screening be performed until age 75. Melanoma is also preventable by taking precautions when exposed to the sun. The importance of wearing sunscreen cannot be emphasized enough. The most effective way to prevent cancer is to listen to your body and to go for a physical every year. You know your body better than anyone else. If something doesn’t look or feel right, have it seen to- it might just save your life.

What a find, what a treasure Part Two Joan Wilson

Some years after hurricane Ivan almost wiped us out, I was cleaning up our garden and finding little green weeds or whatever they were coming up out of the ground (I could almost hear them sighing ‘at last air’). I later discovered they weren’t weeds at all but beautiful shade trees like the neem, eucalyptus, papaya, bottlebrush, naseberry, and oh so many more I could mention. I took good care of them because most of them I hadn’t seen in my garden before. In due course I took them up and transplanted them in the Elmslie Church yard. I watered them and took good care of them – they were special – Ivan had given them to me you see. Every day for weeks I went out to the Church to water the plants and wash the windows and walls down cleaning up all the rubbish on each visit from the areas I was planting. Then the most amazing thing was to happen. As I cleaned the area back of the Church near the northeastern door (with my bare hands and fingers) I suddenly felt something very hard in the ground just where I was weeding. I thought it to be unusually hard and sharp. So I kept digging gently around it and I suddenly realized it was the corner of something. So I kept on gently digging and removing the earth from whatever it was. I suddenly got a sight of the colour of it. It was grey, it was square and by the time I finished

digging, I suddenly realized I had found a very important tooled piece of stone. Of course I couldn’t lift it so I called my helper and he called three other gentlemen who were working nearby at Margaritaville. To my great surprise when we lifted it up it was an untarnished, well preserved marble plaque, in perfect condition. There was not a mark on it except what someone had originally planned for it. Why it was abandoned only the good Lord knows. Anyway, in one corner was carved the likeness of a church like Elmslie, and in the opposite corner was carved a boat. What a treasure! I’m sure you will agree these treasures are not found very often. If you visit Elmslie Memorial Church you will see the finished product on the right hand wall by the door

as you enter. It now commemorates the actual builder of the church. On another occasion I was on a trip to Jamaica with our Womens’ Fellowship for a conference. We’re in a queue going out of the airport to board a bus when all of a sudden my foot kicked a lump of marl – I almost tripped. However, I took a good look at the lump of marl and the rest is history – another treasure. A lovely ruby and diamond ring was embedded in the marl. It didn’t take me long to get that out, clean it up and it fits my middle finger just right. WHAT A FIND!!!! Have you ever looked through garbage? You’d be surprised what I have found whilst dumping my own??!! joan.wilson@ieyenews.com

All the world’s an island One Good Thing Carol-Ann Rudy We all have days when we walk around with the feeling there is a cloud hanging over our heads like the character in a mid-twentieth century comic strip called Li’l Abner. The character’s name was Joe Bfstplk or something close to it and the cartoonist illustrated Joe walking around with an actual gray cloud hanging over his head, a graphic illustration for the rest of us when it seems trouble follows us all day. Nate Ransom just couldn’t get a break one day last week. He burned the toast, his fried egg was like rubber, the milk had soured, he had no clean underwear and worse yet, dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. On the way to work, his trusty car blew a gasket. While standing beside it on a busy highway, a police officer pulled up behind him and ticketed him for a smashed taillight he’d been meaning to take care of. After a tow truck hauled him and his car to a service station, he caught a taxi to work only to find out he’d left his wallet at home. After practically signing away his firstborn, he was finally free to walk into his place of employment where he was greeted with cool stares. All day long it was a game of catch-up, a day of apologies for everything being late. On the phone with customers, it seemed every one of them was crusty and having a really bad, really horrible day. Nate figured his misfortunes were rubbing off on them. His bad luck dogged him; getting a drink from the water cooler, the plastic bottle on top of it picked that time to be almost empty.

All day Breakfast & Lunch making Miss Sally Thornton very unhappy. Glaring at him, he knew his dreams of asking her for a date were dashed. Nevertheless, he got paper towels and did his best to clean up the keyboard and the mess on the floor. Nate knew things couldn’t get any worse, but he was wrong. He got a ride home with a coworker, the only stroke of luck that day. His key stuck in the lock of his door so he broke a window to get in, setting off the security alarm, and setting off an elderly neighbor. The police arrived, but the situation was quickly resolved when they begrudgingly acknowledged he was a legitimate tenant. He grabbed his wallet containing his ATM card and took off running six blocks to his bank. That business completed, he turned towards home only to find himself in a sudden downpour. By the time he arrived home, he was soaked, cold and shivering. Climbing back in through the window, he wrapped himself in a towel, fixed hot tea, sat by his broken window and thought about his thoroughly miserable day. He felt like a failure. Warming up, he went to spend a little time answering email on his computer. In it was a message

from Sally, asking if she could stop by. Answering as fast as his fingers could type, he said yes. A short time later, there was a knock at the door. He opened it to find a tearful Sally. He invited her in and asked what was wrong. “I’ve had a terrible day, Nate. Everything went wrong for me; I dropped my purse on a sidewalk and lost half my stuff down a storm drain, I got to work and my boss yelled at me for something that wasn’t my fault, and I lost important documents when my computer crashed.” Nate consoled her. “I’m so sorry to hear that. Maybe tomorrow will be a much better day. It was a bad one for me too.” She looked up at him and smiled shyly. “But Nate, there’s something you should know….” “Yes?” “You were the one good thing in my whole day. You smiled even though it was a bad day for you.” Suddenly, Sally became his one good thing. The rest of the day didn’t matter after all. In this chaotic world, may we all try to be the one good thing for others in our lives. carol-ann.rudy@ieyenews.com

Agatha Christie, the cheese in the ‘Mousetrap’ Georgina Wilcox She was born 15th September 1890 and died on the 12th January 1976. She has given me the greatest pleasure, leaving me tranquil and craving for more when I am through devouring one of her countless tomes. She is a philosopher of the mundane, a scholar of death, and an exquisite chronicler of decay and decadence. She wrote romances under the name of Mary Westmacott. She was born Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller and on Christmas Eve 1914 she married Archibald Christie and became Mrs. Agatha Christie, later Dame Agatha Christie. I spend as much time wondering what so mesmerizes me in her pulp fiction as I do trying to decipher her deliciously contorted stratagems. First, there is the claustrophobia. Modernity revolves around the rapid depletion of our personal spaces - from pastures and manors to cubicles and studio apartments. Christie - like Edgar Ellen Poe before her - imbues even the most confined rooms with endless opportunities for vice and malice, where countless potential scenarios can and do unfold kaleidoscopically. A Universe of plots and countervailing subplots that permeate even the most cramped of her locations. It is nothing short of consummate magic. Then there is the realization of the ubiquity of our pathologies. In Christie’s masterpieces, even the champions of good are paragons of mental illness. Hercules Poirot, the quintessential narcissist, selfgrooming, haughty, and delusional. Miss Marple, a schizoid busybody, who savors neither human company, nor her inevitable encounters with an intruding world. Indeed, it is deformity that gifts these two with their eerily penetrating insights into the infirmities of others. Do not forget the death of innocence. Dame Agatha’s detective novels are quaint, set in an Imperialist type Britain that is no more and likely had never existed. Technologies make their debut: the car, the telephone, the radio, and electric light. The very nature of evil is transformed from

Novelist Agatha Christie

the puerile directness of the highway robber and the passion killer - to the scheming, cunning, and disguised automatism of her villains. Crime in her books is calculated, the outcome of plotting and conspiring, a confluence of unbridled and corrupted appetites and a malignant mutation of individualism. Her opus is a portrait of our age, as it emerged, all bloodied and repellent, from the womb the dying Victorian era. Christie’s weapons of choice are simple - the surreptitious poison, a stealthy dagger, the cocked revolver, a hideous drowning. Some acquaintance with the sciences of Chemistry and Physics is indispensable, of course. Archeology comes third. But Christie’s main concerns are human nature and morality. The riddles that she so fiendishly posits cannot be solved without taking both into account. As Miss Marple keeps insisting throughout her numerous adventures, people are the same everywhere, regardless of their social standing, wealth, or upbringing. The foibles, motives, and likely actions of protagonists - criminals as well as victims - are inferred by Marple from character studies of her village folks back home. Human nature is immutable and universal is Christie’s message. Not so morality. Formal justice is a slippery concept, often opposed to the natural sort. Life is in shades of grey. Murders sometimes are justified,

especially when they serve to rectify past wrongs or prevent a greater evil. Some victims had it coming. Crime is part of a cycle of karmic retribution. The detective’s role is to restore order to a chaotic situation, to interpret reality for us (in an inevitable final chapter), and to administer true and impartial justice, not shackled by social or legalistic norms. ‘Nothing is as it seems’ is perhaps Christie’s greatest allure. Beneath the polished, petite-bourgeois, rule-driven surface, lurks another world, replete with demons and with angels, volcanic passions and stochastic drives, the mirrors and the mirrored, where no ratio rules and no laws obtain. Catapulted into this nightmarish, surrealistic landscape, like the survivors of a shipwreck, we wander, bedazzled, readers and detectives, heroes and villains, damsels and their lovers, doomed to await the denouement. When that moment comes, redeemed by reason, we emerge, reassured, into our reinstated, ordered, Before Christ(ie) existence. Her novels are the substance of our dreams, woven from the fabric of our fears, an open invitation to plunge into our psyches and courageously confront the abyss. Hence Christie’s irresistibility - her utter acquaintance with our deepest quiddity. Who can forgo such narcissistic pleasure? Not Georgina, for sure! georgina.wilcox@ieyenews.com

iSports Poker problems for Yankees star Rodriguez Writen by : Victoria Anderson

APPLY SUNSCREEN PROPERLY.

The end of the school year is here and savvy moms and dads by now have made all the arrangements for summer. Summer camps and leisurely days at the pool or beach are just a few of the summer rituals for many families. However if you're tempted to let your child play outdoors for even a few minutes without proper sun protection, you might want to think twice. Adolescence and childhood are critical periods during which exposure to UV radiation is more likely to contribute to skin cancer in later life. Children with fair skin, blond or red hair and blue or green eyes are at the highest risk of sunburn. But darker-skinned children also need sun protection. With this in mind, it’s important that parents teach their children how to enjoy fun in the sun safely.

LIMIT OUTDOOR PLAYTIME BETWEEN 10A.M. AND 4P.M.

Apply a thick, even coat to all exposed areas 20 - 30 minutes before your child goes out in the sun. Choose a sunscreen with SPF (Sun Protection Factor) 15 or higher. Make sure it's labeled "broad spectrum," which means it blocks both UVA and UVB sunlight. For your little ones, sunscreen that contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide should be selected as these compounds are less irritating than others. Sunscreen sticks are best for the face because they are sweat proof and less likely to drip. Don't forget nose, ears, hands, feet, shoulders, and behind the neck; lips can also burn, so apply a lip balm with SPF protection. Reapply sunscreen every 2 to 3 hours, or after sweating or swimming.

COVER FROM HEAD TO TOE. Wearing protective clothing and hats is one of the primary ways of warding off UV damage. When wet, light coloured clothing transmits just as much sunlight as bare skin. Keep your kids covered with dark colours, long sleeves, and pants whenever possible. And don't forget the accessories: sunglasses with UV protection to guard against burned corneas, and hats to prevent sunburned scalps and faces. Protective clothing, hats with wide brims, and sunglasses are just as important for babies. At the beach, bring along a large umbrella.

Parents, you are the best teacher by practicing sun safety yourself. If your child sees you following sun safety rules, he'll take them for granted and follow suit. Teach every member of the family how to protect their skin and eyes. With proper supervision, children can learn to protect themselves and enjoy summer fun without sacrificing the health of their skin.

Avoid unnecessary exposure when the sun's rays are at their strongest. Even on cloudy or cooler days, ultraviolet (UV) rays remain strong. Shady spots can be just as tricky because of reflected light. If your child is playing outdoors during these hours, make sure to apply ample sunscreen.

WATCH OUT FOR MEDICATIONS. Some medications increase the skin's sensitivity to the sun, so make sure to ask your doctor whether your child may be at risk. Prescription antibiotics and acne medications are the most notorious culprits, but when in doubt, ask.

CHICAGO (AP) — Yankees star Alex Rodriguez will be interviewed by Major League Baseball as part of its investigation of his involvement in illegal poker games.

Rodriguez also faced questions about his gambling habits in 2005, when the Daily News reported he attended games at an underground poker club in New York. The slugging third baseman later acknowledged “it wasn’t the right thing to do,” and checked with MLB before holding a charity poker tournament the following year. Now baseball wants to talk to him again. “We take this very seriously and have been investigating this matter since the initial allegation,” MLB said Wednesday in a statement. “As part of the investigation, the commissioner’s office will interview Mr. Rodriguez.” Rodriguez is on the disabled list and wasn’t with the team Wednesday night in Chicago. “I don’t really have any comment on that,” manager Joe Girardi said before the Yankees’ 18-7 victory over the White Sox. “Let baseball handle those things.” Star Magazine reported last month that several people saw A-Rod playing in games hosted at Hollywood hotels and residences. His publicist denied that Rodriguez participated. Rodriguez’s name is not mentioned in any court filings in relation to the games.

WHILE STOCKS LAST!!

Former Japan manager Philippe Troussier paid tribute to the defender, saying he was a key member of the World Cup team. “It’s terrible to see someone die at such a young age,” Mr Troussier told Reuters news agency. “It’s a big shock. He was a great guy and I felt a close bond to him. My thoughts go to his family.” Fans, friends and former players had gathered at the hospital in Matsumoto to wish the player well. Matsuda played 40 times for Japan, including at the 2002 World Cup in Japan and South Korea. He also played 385 J-League games for the Yokohama F Marinos from 1995 to 2010, helping the team to three league titles. After an initial diagnosis of heat stroke, he was later confirmed to have had a cardiac arrest. He was unconscious on his arrival at the hospital and showed no response to heart massage. ‘I never got to know Matsuda directly but knew what a great player he was having watched him in the J-League last year,’ Japan coach Alberto Zaccheroni said. 5 August 2011

Patterson dropped to the ground between plays during a morning practice, and the player began violently shaking. He was immediately tended to by Burkholder and his staff, with assistance from rookie offensive lineman Danny Watkins, a trained firefighter. Burkholder said the 6-foot1, 300-pound Patterson was undergoing further tests at Lehigh Valley Hospital. “Chances are really good we’re going to keep him in overnight for observation,” Burkholder said. “He’s there with his wife. The only thing that we’ve really ruled out, he didn’t have any bleeding in his brain or anything like that. The bleeding that some of you saw was that he bit his tongue, they’ve confirmed that, and they’re running more tests on him right now. “But he’s very stable. He wants to come back to training camp, but he’s over there being observed, but that’s pretty normal for somebody who has a seizure. Standard protocol says keep him in overnight to watch him and keep some monitors on him and whatnot.” Patterson’s agent JR Ricket said in a statement that the player is “in no pain and doing well.”

“As an organization, Roush Fenway provides the resources I need to win, and as a driver, that’s the most important thing. We’re having a fun season on the race track as we’re leading the points and in great position for the Chase.” As the top free agent in NASCAR, Edwards had diligently researched all his options and appeared close to bolting for JGR. But Edwards was under increasing pressure to make a decision, even though he was steadfast in negotiating privately. But four-time series champion Jeff Gordon said last weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway that there was no way the contract talks weren’t a distraction to Edwards, and Edwards had no chance to win the title should he decide to leave Roush. Roush teammate Greg Biffle then intimated Edwards was leaving the organisation and needed to make the announcement so RFR could begin its plans for life post-Edwards. 5 August 2011
