KNOT A JOLLY? Chief Baines fears stories may stop help

Police Commissioner David Baines fears that the weekend controversy about the visit of Merseyside Chief Constable Jon Murphy to the Cayman Islands will stop UK police answering future calls for help. “I’m frustrated by it, yes,” the commissioner said of the Daily Mail’s lavishly illustrated Saturday story of Mr Murphy and two colleagues on the Marriott Hotel beach, “but I have a real concern that this nonsense type of reporting poses a real threat, that it is just not worth going to help, not worth responding to calls for assistance.

“It’ll take more than a lifetime for me to use the coral I’ve got.” said Carey Hurlstone

Christopher Tobutt christopher.tobutt@ieyenews.com

Carey Hurlstone has been running “Carey’s Black Coral” for 30 years. He was born in South Sound in 1936, just along from where he lives today, and works making beautiful jewellery from black coral in a wooden workshop he built himself called The Bikini House. Along with black coral, The Bikini House holds a rather unusual collection of ladies’ thongs. The garments hang from the ceiling of the shop and Mr. Hurlstone says he likes collecting them and often asks people who visit the shop to make a donation. He keeps a record of all the thong donations in a special book called the Thong Book. Another one of Mr. Hurlstone’s passions is collecting marbles, and his shelves in the Bikini House are filled with jars of them – reflecting all colours of the rainbow. When he was 17, Mr. Hurlstone went away to sea like most other young Caymanian men, working with the merchant marine, for the US company National Bulk Carriers. He was only with them for about a year, he said, when he jumped to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

ship at Martinez, California, and signed up with a different outfit - the Hell’s Angels. The Japanese cook who worked on Mr. Hurlstone’s ship had taught him all about judo. Mr. Hurlstone was having a dockside fight using his newly learnt Judo moves, but he didn’t know he was being watched by a member of the Oakland chapter of the Hell’s Angels. “A man came up to me and said, ‘Do you know how to ride a motorbike?’ I said, ‘No.’ Then the man said,” If you show me how to do that, I’ll show you how to ride a bike. “I went back into the ship to get my passport, and say goodbye, and then I rode off, to join the Oakland Hell’s Angels,” Mr. Hurlstone said. After just over three years with the Angels, Mr. Hurlstone left and made his way back home to the Cayman Islands. “I couldn’t trust my brothers in the Hell’s Angels,” he said. After joining up with the merchant marine all over again, but this time spending several years sailing with them, Mr. Hurlstone came back home, yet again, but this time to settle down for good. “My life changed when I met my wife, Merrill,” Mr. Hurlstone said.

The Bikini House holds a rather unusual collection of ladies’ thongs.

Mr. Hurlstone first found work as a carpenter, and later, when others in Cayman were working on Black Coral, he and a friend went diving down 175 feet - they filled many containers with black coral, which have lasted him ever since. It was a good idea, because a few years later, there was a ban on gathering black coral. But Mr. Hurlstone isn’t worried that he’ll use it all up, “It’ll take more than a lifetime for me to use the coral I’ve got,” he said. Mr. Hurlstone’s jewellery is very affordable, ranging in price from around 25 dollars to 60 dollars. He makes earrings and pendants mostly, ranging from stingrays to crosses. You wonder how anything so beautiful can be made from the raw black coral, which looks like old, sandy black twigs. But Mr. Hurlstone is a true craftsman, and he showed me all the different stages the coral goes through to make it shine like black gold. “I use four different cutters, three grades of sand paper, and finally, car wax with jeweller’s rouge which I apply before I finish it with a buffer,” he said.

Paralysed man uses mind-powered robot arm to touch PITTSBURGH (AP) — Giving a high-five. Rubbing his girlfriend’s hand. Such ordinary acts — but a milestone for a paralysed man. True, a robotic arm parked next to his wheelchair did the touching, painstakingly, palm to palm. But Tim Hemmes made that arm move just by thinking about it. Emotions surged. For the first time in the seven years since a motorcycle accident left him a quadriplegic, Hemmes was reaching out to someone — even if it was only temporary, part of a monthlong science experiment at the University of Pittsburgh. “It wasn’t my arm but it was my brain, my thoughts. I was moving something,” Hemmes says. “I don’t have one single word to give you what I felt at that moment. That word doesn’t exist.” The Pennsylvania man is among the pioneers in an ambitious quest for thoughtcontrolled prosthetics to give the paralysed more independence — the ability to feed themselves, turn a doorknob, hug a loved one. The goal is a Star Trek-like melding of mind and machine, combining what’s considered the most humanlike bionic arm to date — even the fingers bend like real ones — with tiny chips implanted in the brain. Those electrodes tap into electrical signals from brain cells that command movement. Bypassing a broken spinal cord, they relay those signals to the robotic third arm. This research is years away from commercial use, but numerous teams are investigating different methods.

Cayman Enterprise City gets the ball rolling Medical Centre

Cayman Enterprise City (CEC) Special Economic Zone have given a glimpse of their proposed plans to reinvigorate Cayman’s business market. In an interview with iNews, CEC’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Hilary McKenzie-Cahill, said that CEC are intending to boost Cayman’s future by giving opportunities never before seen in the Cayman Islands. The CEC Special Economic Zone will be the first of such Zone in the western hemisphere and will consist of an Internet and Technology Park, a Media Park, a Biotechnology Park, a Commodities and Derivatives Park and an International Academic Park. A Special Economic Zone (SEZ) is an area within a country that has certain economic laws that are freemarket-oriented more so than a country’s typical laws. SEZs are created to attract new businesses to a country and have been proven historically in other jurisdictions to have a very favorable impact on a country’s economy. Ms. McKenzie-Cahill says that CEC will seek to host new business ventures to the Caymanian market that will not compete with those already existing. CEC hope that within the first year, between 400-800 jobs will be created with an expected further 9,800 made available within the next 8 years. to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

Renderings of the phase one of the proposed Cayman Enterprise City (CEC) Special Economic Zone.

5,000 of these jobs will be available within the CEC while the remaining 4,800 jobs available throughout the country, created to service those within the Zone “There will be new and exciting careers for Caymanians that have not previously existed in Cayman along side a Careers Development Bureau encompassing new management training and career enhancement programmes.” Said Ms. McKenzie-Cahill The CEC will be built in three phases starting at the end of the first quarter 2012 and Ms. McKenzie-Cahill stressed that only local contractors and labour will be employed during the construction phases. Under the terms of its Definitive Agreement, CEC has the right to rent up to 100,00sq ft of existing commercial office space whilst the first phase of the Zone is being built. Therefore CEC will be able to bring down international firms as early as January 2011 to utilise the space and enjoy benefits of the Zone. By taking on the office space in George Town, business will be able to get started without having to wait for

the completion of phase one. “Another positive impact on Cayman’s economy will be for the commercial and residential landlords who have been struggling to fill empty apartments and commercial buildings.” Said Ms. McKenzie-Cahill Hilary McKenzie-Cahill, Vice President, Marketing and Business Development added, “We want to emphasise that this project will bring many benefits to the people of Cayman.” “We are fully committed to opening the doorways for Caymanians and giving them all the opportunities we have to offer.”

Paul McCartney weds in nostalgia-filled ceremony LONDON (AP) — A hint of autumnal Beatlemania was in the air Sunday as Paul McCartney, for the second time in his improbable life, climbed the steps of venerable Old Marylebone Town Hall to take himself a bride. True, thousands of heartbroken female fans crowded the columned building in 1969 when he married Linda Eastman, and only a few hundred showed up Sunday as he wed another American, Nancy Shevell, at the very same registry office. But the feeling this time was not regret at the loss of a bachelor

heartthrob. Instead there was joy that McCartney, regarded as a national treasure and revered the world over, seemed happy again. The 69-year-old former Beatle appeared proud, content and eager to share his joy with the crowd, raising his bride’s hand in triumph as he walked down the steps after they became man and wife in a simple civil ceremony attended by close family and friends, including drummer Ringo Starr and Barbara Walters, a second cousin of the bride. “I feel absolutely wonderful,”

McCartney told fans as he arrived at his home after the ceremony. He was expected to sing a new song he had composed for his bride at the reception.

24 dead in worst Cairo riots since Mubarak ouster CAIRO (AP) — Flames lit up downtown Cairo, where massive clashes raged Sunday, drawing Christians angry over a recent church attack, Muslims and Egyptian security forces. At least 24 people were killed and more than 200 injured in the worst sectarian violence since the uprising that ousted Hosni Mubarak in February. The rioting lasted late into the night, bringing out a deployment of more than 1,000 security forces and armored vehicles to defend the state television building along the Nile, where the trouble began. The military clamped a curfew on the

area until 7 a.m. The clashes spread to nearby Tahrir Square, drawing thousands of people to the vast plaza that served as the epicenter of the protests that ousted Mubarak. On Sunday night, they battled each other with rocks and firebombs, some tearing up pavement for ammunition and others collecting stones in boxes. At one point, an armored security van sped into the crowd, striking a half-dozen protesters and throwing some into the air. Protesters retaliated by setting fire to military vehicles, a bus and private cars,

UN: Detainees tortured in Afghanistan KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Prisoners in some Afghan-run detention facilities have been beaten and tortured, a United Nations report said Monday, but the international organization said that the mistreatment was not the result of government policy. The 74-page report found that detainees in 47 facilities in 24 provinces run by the Afghan National Police and the Directorate of Security suffered interrogation techniques that constituted torture under both international and Afghan law. It said Afghan security ministries cooperated with the investigation and have taken measures to stop the abuse after being presented with the report.

The NATO-led international military coalition, also known as ISAF, announced last month that it had stopped transferring detainees to 16 of the facilities. NATO was taking action to help fix the problem before resuming the transfers, the report said. Drafted by the U.N.’s Afghan mission, known as UNAMA, the report was based on interviews of 379 detainees spread around the facilities and conducted from October 2010 to August 2011. It “found the use of interrogation techniques that constitute torture under international law and crimes under Afghan law, as well as other forms of mistreatment.”

Misleading reporting is totally unjustified - Baines

Chief Constable Jon Murphy with Detective Chief Superintendents Tony Doherty and Brian McNeill (photo by Splash News)

“This erroneous and misleading reporting is totally unjustified. It will not be lost on Mr Murphy’s colleagues in the UK who will ask if this is worth the trouble,” Mr Baines told iNews. He was reacting to Saturday’s frontpage, nationwide Daily Mail feature, purporting to expose Mr Murphy, Detective Chief Superintendent Tony Doherty and similarly ranked Brian McNeill on an expenses-paid seaside holiday. The Mail, which sells more than two

million copies a day, also featured an article from iNews in which Mr Murphy insisted the trip “would not be a jolly”. Our same story appeared in the Sunday Mirror and on Sky News television. The trio, at the request of Governor Duncan Taylor and Mr Baines, were here to outline the role of 20 arriving northwest-UK detectives, helping local police address September’s gangrelated violence. The Daily Mail, which earlier exposed 2008’s ill-fated and now-discredited $10 million anti-corruption Operation Tempura investigation by London’s Metropolitan Police, tailed Mr Murphy’s

team throughout their five-day stay, photographing their leisure activities, including a Stingray City visit on Mr Baines’s boat. “The newspaper focused on photos of them at the beach, in swimsuits, and a visit to Stingray City,” Mr Baines said, “taking advantage of their time off, and enjoying what everyone else in the Cayman Islands takes for granted. It was a little silly, but it projected an image that was wholly unfair and wholly unrepresentative.” He said the incident would not, however, discourage the Merseysiders’ mission.

iNews really is in the news iNews Cayman made headlines in the British media for their coverage of the visit by Merseyside Police Chief Constable Jon Murphy. In the Daily Mail on Saturday, a newspaper which sales more than two million copies each day, they reprinted our front page story in which Mr Murphy insisted his trip would not be a jolly. They also made reference to our exclusive interview with the senior officer and featured our newspaper on their website which has around 75m unique web browers per month.

“My concern and Mr Murphy’s was that the reporting would affect the officers, but it will not affect how they work. They are here to do a job and to support their colleagues in the RCIPS. They will work shifts and do what we ask them to do. In the meantime, though, you cannot expect them to live like hermits,” Mr Baines said. Mr Murphy, intercepted after his Saturday arrival at London’s Heathrow Airport, rejected any talk of resignation, saying “small amounts of downtime” were part of the trio’s schedule. “I was asked to do two things put together a team of experienced detectives from across the North West forces to support the RCIPS and go in my capacity as the business lead for ACPO [Association of Chief Police Officers] on serious and organised crime,” he said. “In addition, I felt it important to ensure the safety of the team of officers - who have now arrived on the island - was guaranteed in a hostile environment.” He released a detailed itinerary, starting with his Monday, 9pm George Town arrival after a 16-hour economyclass flight. “On Tuesday morning, the group started work at 10am and worked through to 6pm before a working dinner,” the schedule said. “On Wednesday, all three officers went for a swim before work at 8:40am, which consisted of various meetings to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

and briefing until 4pm. Another swim followed, then drinks and another working dinner. “Thursday saw an early start at 7:45am to draft reports while the chief constable met the Cayman education minister. At 2pm, they went out on the commissioner’s boat and followed this with a coffee at the hotel. There was another working dinner at 7pm. “On Friday, the final day, the group was picked up at 6:30am for a radio interview, then met politicians and briefed them on their findings. They conducted a press conference at 12pm where local reporters were told the trip was ‘not a jolly’ before heading off to the airport for 2pm and another 16-hour flight back to Liverpool in economy class,” the summary said. “I feel that neither myself, nor the senior officers who accompanied me, have anything to hide,” Mr Murphy

said, conceding that the RCIPS had paid for the visit. “They, along with representatives of the government, have thanked us for the hard work and assistance we have given.” In a prepared statement, Mr Baines said Mr Murphy and his team “worked hard during their time in the Cayman Islands,” completing a “grueling schedule,” delivering “much more than we had originally asked of them. “The story covered by the tabloids in the UK does not reflect that. It merely undermines and devalues the extent and quality of the advice and guidance provided by these highly experienced officers. All it has achieved is to turn what should be a very positive story about UK policing into a cheap headline-grabbing swipe at the professionalism of those officers and the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.”

There is good and bad in colin.wilson@ieyenews.com most situations, although, sometimes with a bad one, it is hard to find the good. ‘Ugly’ is not a word I like to use hence the dot, dot, dot. I am referring to the publicity this newspaper did not seek but got in the UK tabloids and on UK television and radio over the weekend (8/9) Our exclusive interview with Merseyside’s Chief Constable Jon Murphy, when he told us that his trip to the Cayman Islands was “not a jolly,” made front page news with a photograph of our website showing the interview and headline, along with photographs of Jon Murphy and two other of his officers. Unfortunately, the photos showed him, in particular, along with the other officers having a wonderful ‘jolly’ old time on a boat, tanning themselves on the beach, snorkeling and wading with flippers in the sea on Seven Mile Beach. Unknown to anyone, a Daily Mail (UK) reporter was here along with an undercover photographer they had hired, and has given a totally different impression. The ‘good’ is it gave this newspaper publicity we could never have paid for. Our web hits have gone off the roof. One of our reporters was interviewed at 2:30am (Sat) by Sky News UK (you can get the link to this on our website should you wish to view it). More publicity for us. And what about our Islands? Excellent. It showed our wonderful beach, our superb water, our warm sunshine, our stingrays and how everyone coming here even to work can find time to relax and have fun. Absolute paradise. If I were in the UK and wanting a place to visit in the sun, the Cayman Islands would be the number one choice after viewing all those photographs. A most

splendid free advert! The ‘bad’ is coming so soon after the same UK newspaper had shown the antics of the UK special police investigation team headed up by Martin Bridger during Operation Tempura. Then there is Jon Murphy’s statement to the UK media that the RCIPS paid for the visit in full. When this country is borrowing money to meet our debts and trying to save money with cuts in the public sector and Government projects. With people living here with rising unemployment, rising costs and lowering incomes. His statement is a real slap in the face to us. It does not appear we are going to get value for our dollar. The blogs, BEFORE this event, spoke about ‘another load of UK police coming here for a jolly good time.’ The missing word perhaps could be ‘naïve’ because I am kind. (Yes, I really am!) Our publisher, Joan Wilson, has commented publically that she can find no wrong in these officers taking time off to relax after a long flight from the UK. Our reporter said something similar on Sky News. I have just got back from the UK and my first two days back here felt like I was firing on one cylinder – yes ‘Jet Lag’ is horrible. I cannot speak for our Commissioner, David Baines, but it was not a surprise to us here at iNews that a Daily Mail reporter was here. That he was not aware one was following him around with a photographer is surprising. Did he not even consider it might happen? It certainly showed some naivety to ‘entertain’ his guests in such a public place on his own boat. Perhaps he doesn’t read the blogs? I dislike them. But I have to confess I read them. For the good the bad and the really UGLY ones!

Just days before his expected ascension to the position of Jamaican Prime Minister, Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) frontrunner Mr. Andrew Holness, has already begun to make way for elections. The powerful JPL Area Council One has thrown its weight behind Andrew Holness, endorsing his candidacy to become party leader and prime minister of Jamaica.

The 39-year-old Holness has consistently emerged ahead of other members of his party in publicopinion polls, and has received strong support to replace Golding, who has announced he will depart from the post of JLP leader and prime minister come November. “I have not won a prize. What I have just done is to put myself (forward) to assume the mantle of leadership of this country. I don’t approach that task giddy-headed. I don’t take it lightly. “I approach it with sobriety, with clear vision as to what this country needs to prosper.

give me wisdom when there is confusion. I approach the job with some amount of excitement, because I have always wanted to do this.” Holness told the crowd, in an address which sounded like he had already taken the oath of office. Under the Jamaican constitution, the ruling political party can call an election months before the designated time. An early election can be beneficial to a political party, as it can potentially convert public confidence into votes, before the momentum of the party’s popularity starts dwindling. Under Jamaica’s Two-Party system of Government, it is customary for the victorious political party, to be given a mandatory five-year term in power, before the opposition party can challenge them for the leadership position in an election. “The Opposition has no understanding of what is required to run a modern country. Every time you ask what they are doing, they can’t present. So if they are not in government and they don’t have any responsibility, and they can’t develop even a plan to show this country where they want to take it, then why should you even consider giving them an opportunity to drive you? Where will they drive you if they can’t even develop the map to take you where you want to go?” asked Andrew Holness. The decision of the current Prime Minister, The Honourable Bruce Golding, to resign from his post, has been hailed by some of his supporters as a step in the right direction. The popularity and appeal of Mr. Golding received a devastating blow, as a result of the events surrounding the arrest and extradition of former West Kingston Area Leader, Christopher “Dudus” Coke. Jamaicans are now awaiting the formalities of voting and appointment process before the formal declaration of their new leader and Prime Minister.

Overwhelming response to

Students enjoy drumming during one of the many afterschool activities available to government high school students.

In just three weeks the secondary schools’ Extended Afterschool Programme (EASP) has recorded an overwhelming response with more than 800 registrations and some 500 students participating weekly. The free programme offers students attending government high schools 31 activities, including martial arts, power lifting, swimming, sailing, scuba diving, dance and media club, between the hours of 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. Mondays through Fridays. Education Ministry Chief Officer Mary Rodrigues explains that the programme was launched jointly by the Ministries of Education and Youth to reduce opportunities for students to

adopt at-risk behaviours. “The programme provides a safe, fun and productive environment between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. until parents return from work. Students on our at-risk register are encouraged to attend, but the programme is open to all students.” Commenting on the overwhelming community response the programme has received Education Ministry Liaison Officer for At-risk Youth and EASP Coordinator Michael Myles says he’s excited that it has been such a tremendous success. He noted, “This proves that the programme is a worthwhile investment for the future of this country.” Piloted from April-June 2011 with

nine activities, the programme was expanded after organisers received positive feedback from participating youngsters and their parents. In addition to the 22 activities that were added, the programme also got a boost from four social programmes: Food and Nutrition, Family Recognition Night, Community Service and Rewards. The Food and Nutrition Programme is designed to expose participants to healthy food preparation practices and advice on healthy life styles. Offered in conjunction with the Health Services Authority (HSA) the programme involves visits to restaurants and information sessions with an

Afterschool Programme

Laura Ribbins

More than 80 youngsters turned up for the boxing activity offered as part of the Education and Youth Ministries Extended Afterschool Programme.

HSA nutritionist. Family Recognition Night aims to pull parents, volunteers and instructors together for a monthly dinner with students. There, Myles says students will have an opportunity to pay tribute to their parents, instructors, volunteers and community. Equally, parents will have a chance to meet instructors and develop relationships. He notes that all stakeholders will be encouraged to attend this function. Giving back to the many community partners who’ve made the programme possible is also important. The Community Service Programme is designed to encourage that. Myles

explains that students from the various clubs and activities will develop projects and partner monthly for this purpose. He says, “This will teach our young people that they too have an obligation as citizens to give back to the country in other areas.” The final programme, Rewards, offers incentives to participants who exhibit perfect attendance, respect and hard work. Students who perform well, and demonstrate positive leadership and commitment to community service will also receive special recognition. With all that said however, Myles notes that sustaining the programme long-term will require some community support. He says, “This

programme has the potential to grow even further, but it requires volunteers to assist instructors, and incentives in the form of gift certificates and funding. “As such, we’re inviting persons with ideas for additional activities or those wishing to donate gifts to join the programme. Our aim is to ensure that every young person attending secondary school has a choice for afterschool activities. By ensuring that this happens, we will prevent young people from engaging in negative activities.” Email Michael.Myles@gov.ky or call 244-3150 for more information on the programme.

The Cancer Society has played an integral role in the kick-off and opening of our children’s Summer Camp. Their Project Coordinator, Vicki Anderson, attended our first week of Summer Camp and spoke to our campers about the importance of sun safety and using sunscreen, hats, and long clothing to prevent sun damage and skin cancer. The presentation was engaging, informative, and tailored to our young audience. It was the perfect way to set the standard for summer sun safety for our children and the entire Summer Camp. We are looking forward to the Cancer Society’s return for our next summer season! Laura Ribbins and the Fitness Connection Team 2011

Equipping early childhood practitioners Thirty-two early childhood practitioners are learning the basics of child development in an Early Childhood Care and Education Unit (ECCE) hosted early-years introduction course. Designed specifically for individuals working in the industry, it aims to teach practitioners about sociocultural theory and practice, child development milestones, communication and language development, as well as literacy and numeracy learning. Participants will also learn how to plan activities for infants, toddlers and young children, incorporating aspects of the new Cayman Islands Early Years Curriculum Framework that is being developed by the ECCE and which was recently shared with early childhood centre representatives. Participants will present these, along with portfolios chronicling their six-week learning journey, during the final week. ”The need for an introductory course was indicated when unit staff gathered information on the

We continue our serialisation of Anne by Constance Fenimore Woolson

Anne

“What is that red light over the shore-line?”

Part 63

And now Anne was gone, it was astonishing to see what a void was left. No one had especially valued or praised her while she was there; she was a matter of course. But now that she was absent, the whole life of the village seemed changed. There was no one to lead the music on Sundays, standing by the organ and singing clearly, and Miss Lois’s playing seemed now doubly dull and mechanical. There was no one going up to the fort at a certain hour every morning, passing the windows where the fort ladies sat, with books under her arm. There was no one working in the Agency garden; no one coming with a quick step into the butcher’s little shop to see what he had, and consult him, not without hidden anxiety, as to the possibility of a rise in prices. There was no one sewing on the piazza, or going out to find the boys, or sailing over to the hermitage with the four blackeyed children, who plainly enough needed even more holy instruction than they obtained. They all knew everything she did, and all her ways. And as it was a small community, they missed her sadly. The old Agency, too, seemed to become suddenly dilapidated, almost ruinous; the boys were undeniably rascals, and Tita “a little minx.” Miss Lois was without doubt a dogmatic old maid, and the chaplain not what he used to be, poor old man—fast breaking up. Only Père Michaux bore the test unaltered. But then he had not leaned upon this young girl as the others had leaned —The house and garden, the chaplain as well as the children: the strong young nature had in one way supported them all. Meanwhile the girl herself was journeying down the lake. She stood at the stern, watching the island grow distant, grow purple, grow lower and lower on the surface of the water, until at last it to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

disappeared; then she covered her face and wept. After this, like one who leaves the vanished past behind him, and resolutely faces the future, she went forward to the bow and took her seat there. Night came on; she remained on deck through the evening: it seemed less lonely there than among the passengers in the cabin. She knew the captain; and she had been especially placed in his charge, also, by Père Michaux, as far as one of the lower-lake ports, where she was to be met by a priest and taken to the eastern-bound train. The captain, a weather-beaten man, past middle age, came after a while and sat down near her. “What is that red light over the shore-line?” said Anne to her taciturn companion, who sat and smoked near by, protecting her paternally by his presence, but having apparently few words, and those husky, at his command. “Fire in the woods.” “Is it not rather late in the season for a forest fire?” “Well, there it is,” answered the captain, declining discussion of the point in face of obvious fact. Anne had already questioned him on the subject of lighthouses. Would he like to live in a lighthouse? No, he would not.

But they might be pleasant places in summer, with the blue water all round them: she had often thought she would like to live in one. Well, he wouldn’t. But why? Resky places sometimes when the wind blew: give him a good stiddy boat, now. After a time they came nearer to the burning forest. Anne could see the great columns of flame shoot up into the sky; the woods were on fire for miles. She knew that the birds were flying, dizzy and blinded, before the terrible conqueror, that the wild-cats were crying like children, that the small wolves were howling, and that the more timid wood creatures were cowering behind fallen trunks, their eyes dilated and ears laid flat in terror. She knew all this because she had often heard it described, fires miles long in the pine forests being frequent occurrences in the late summer and early autumn; but she had never before seen with her own eyes the lurid splendor, as there was no unbroken stretch of pineries on the Straits. She sat silently watching the great clouds of red light roll up into the dark sky, and the shower of sparks higher still. The advanceguard was of lapping tongues that caught at and curled through the green wood far in front; then came a wall of clear orange-colored roaring fire, then the steady incandescence that was consuming the hearts of the great trees, and behind, the long range of dying fires like coals, only each coal was a tree. It grew late; she went to her stateroom in order that the captain might be relieved from his duty of guard. But for several hours longer she sat by her small window, watching the flames, which turned to a long red line as the steamer’s course carried her farther from the shore. She was thinking of those she had left behind, and of the island; of Rast, and her own betrothal.

George Town Primary triumph in Opening Rally

CAYMAN INSURANCE CENTRE LTD.

George Town’s D’Andre Rowe captained his team and was voted MVP of the Final.

Neil R. Murray info@ieyenews.com

George Town Primary claimed the first silverware of the 2011/2012 CUC Primary Football League (PFL) season following a hard fought 1-0 victory over old rivals Sir John A. Cumber Primary in the Opening Rally final this past weekend at the T.E. McField Sports Complex in George Town. George Town’s prolific scorer D’Andre Rowe was the difference between the two finalists as he secured his team’s name in the PFL history books with the game’s only goal deep into extra time. Sir John A. Cumber’s game plan of slowing down the speedy Rowe worked efficiently well thanks to the discipline of Xavier Comment who shadowed the young George Town forward throughout the game. But like so many standout forwards who have made their mark in the PFL over the years, one split-second is all that is needed to change the course of a game. From a corner, Rowe lost his marker and through a crowd of players slammed the ball into the roof of the net past the outstretched fingertips of the young Sir John A. Cumber goalkeeper much to the delight of the George Town faithful. Not to be outdone, Sir John A. Cumber’s youngsters threw everything forward in a final attempt to level the score. With George Town Primary strategically withdrawing their goal scorer back to defence because of his speed, Sir John A. Cumber could take a few more chances going forward. Sir John A. Cumber’s Kameron Mendez had come close on a few occasions during the game, stinging the palms of George Town Primary’s Jalen Walters in goal but could not find the net.

pressure, their players dug deep determined not to fold and eventually held out until the final whistle. It was total team effort. Beaten finalists a year ago, George Town Primary had turned the tide, reached the final and were crowned 2011/2012 CUC PFL Opening Rally champions. To add to their silverware, D’Andre Rowe received the Final’s Most Valuable Player trophy for his outstanding play and wonder goal. George Town’s road to the Final began well by winning Zone B following a 4-0 win over Grace Academy and a 3-0 defeat of Prospect Primary. In the quarterfinals, they disposed of Red Bay Primary 2-0 thanks to two goals from Francisco Marino and in the semi finals; they outlasted a talented Triple C team 3-2 in penalties. Finalists Sir John A. Cumber triumphed in Zone C with a 1-0 win over Savannah Primary and a 2-1 victory over Triple C. In the quarterfinals, they downed Grace Academy 3-0 thanks to goals from Jaheem Webster, Caleb Carter and Barry-Dre Tibbetts, and in the semi finals, they beat St. Ignatius Prep by a similar scoreline with Alexander Clarke, Jaheem Webster

and Barry-Dre Tibbetts securing the win. In the third and fourth placed game, Zone C runners-up Triple C lost out to Zone D champions St. Ignatius Prep 4-5 on penalties. Overall the Opening Rally was very eventful with the generally perceived minnow teams close to carving out a few major upsets. NorthEast Schools took perennial powerhouses St. Ignatius Prep and Red Bay Primary to penalties eventually losing 1-2 and 0-3 respectively before defeating a young Cayman Brac team 2-0. Zone B runners-up Grace Academy triumphed over Prospect Primary in penalties during the group stage before eventually losing out to Sir John A. Cumber in the quarterfinals. We welcomed Cayman Brac back into the fold after a ten-year absence from the PFL. The enthusiastic youngsters did the Brac very proud with their spirited displays against NorthEast Schools, Red Bay Primary and St. Ignatius Prep. Although not scoring a goal, the Brackers were greeted with rapturous applause and cheers of encouragement from the crowd during their three games.

MP

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots were upset that opponents kept piling up yards on them. They took it out on the New York Jets. Even without star linebacker Jerod Mayo, the Patriots allowed just 255 yards and held the Jets without a first down on seven of their 11 possessions in a 30-21 win Sunday. “We said, ‘Enough’s enough,’ and that’s where you make your stand,” said Patriots defensive end Andre Carter, who had seven tackles. It was a surprising showing by a defense that entered the game last in the NFL with an average of 477.5 yards allowed. And it played without its signal-caller, Mayo, who missed his first game because of a serious knee sprain. “I think every week we’ve been getting better and better and better (defensively) and today was a good day to get back on track,” defensive tackle Vince Wilfork said. The Patriots (4-1) never trailed and won their 19th consecutive regular-season game at home. The Jets (2-3) lost their third straight. “We lost two in a row last year but we bounced right back from it,” Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez said. “This is a little different territory. So we’re going to see what a lot of guys are made of on this team and it’s my job to get guys ready to play this next week against Miami.”

GIVE THE TEAM CASH Cayman Islands 0 Suriname 1

Cayman Islands football team crashed to their third successive World Cup defeat, which dumped them out of the competition. And after the game Technical Director Carl Brown said unless the players start getting paid for their efforts, the team will not improve. A single second half goal gave Suriname victory in front of a 2,000 strong crowd at the Truman Bodden Sports Complex on Friday night. It was only after the visitors took the lead that the home side started to threaten. Mark Ebanks and Theron Wood were lively upfront but couldn’t produce a clear chance. Wood’s half-hearted appeals for a penalty were waved away and after a

good move from Ebank’s, cutting inside from the left, his shot was comfortably saved by the Suriname keeper. By then the visitors had already taken the lead thanks to a neat finish from Giovanni Drenthe. In truth – despite enjoying the lion’s share of possession after going a goal behind – the home side created little in the way of clear-cut chances and anything other than a Suriname victory would have been harsh. Late on Cayman keeper Miguel Pitta had a rush of blood and came charging out of his box and unfairly challenged the advancing Suriname striker. The result was a straight red card. After the final whistle Brown said his team would benefit if they played more fixtures, but added that a cash incentive is needed to motivate the team.

Brown, who saw the success of the Reggae Boyz when they got to the World Cup finals in 1998, also admitted that his players lack confidence. He said: “I think it’s time we started to treat the players with the importance that I believe they should get. Monetary incentives have to be offered. “Football has changed over the years. We see players who get millions, quarrel and fight about incentives when they represent their countries. “Sometimes people feel that it should merely be an honour to represent your country and you shouldn’t be talking about money. None of the supermarkets accept these guys faces when they go in and tell them pack up what you want and move out. It’s about cash. “They are ambassadors and it’s time we treated them like ambassadors.”
