The Auditor General will appear this morning before the watchdog Public Accounts Committee, hearing from Premier McKeeva Bush, United Democratic Party Treasurer Peter Young and Chairman of the Central Tenders Committee Ronnie Dunn. The five-member committee, meeting in public session at the Legislative Assembly, will hear testimony about government’s abortive 2010 effort to borrow $155 million from New York financier Cohen & Company, potentially violating regulations regarding tendering processes. The hearings will convene at 10am before Sister Islands MLA Moses Kirkconnell, Chairman of the committee. “We are finalising the list of witnesses now,” Mr Kirkconnell told iNews yesterday, “and are waiting for confirmation.

Small bear makes mess in Alaska grocery store KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) — A small black bear cub walked in the front door of Tatsuda’s IGA. The scared animal found its way to a produce cooler, where it made a mess. Meat department manager Joe Stollar responded to the PA announcement with a net because he misheard the announcement to say there was a bird in the store. Authorities suspect it was an orphaned bear since its mother wasn’t nearby. Stollar says the tiny bear was just scared and trying to hide.

$155 million loan violates regulations Tad Stoner tad.stoner@ieyenews.com

Continued from front page “The Auditor General, Alastair Swarbrick will be there, of course, and we are waiting to hear from Mr Bush in his dual capacity as both Premier and Minister of Finance. The session is not time limited, representing, in fact, a continuation of previous sessions examining the Auditor General’s July report on loopholes in government procurement processes, pointing to lack of controls, political interference and the potential for corruption.” A second August Auditor General report cited three examples of procurement problems: an effort to bypass recommendations by the Central Tenders Committee on sources of government borrowing; the financing of the 2009 Cayman Islands Jazz Festival; and bidding on a crime-fighting closed circuit television system. “The committee wanted more information on the report, so we will call witnesses and then write a report to be submitted to the next session of the LA,” Mr Kirconnell said.

The term of the financing was later cut by more than half, to seven years Ministry of Finance officials and the Central Tenders Committee recommended against the Cohen contract, which was ultimately cancelled in late January this year, but cost government nearly $450,000. “The decision to contract with Cohen & Company was made by the Minister of Finance against the advice of Ministry of Finance officials,” the Auditor General wrote, saying Mr Bush asked ‘his political party colleagues for advice’, overriding Central Tenders Committee selection for borrowing from FirstCaribbean International Bank and the Royal Bank of Canada, long-established sources for government financing.” Chief amongst those “colleagues” was Mr Young, who did not return repeated telephone calls yesterday. Similarly, Mr Bush was not available for comment. “Hopefully we will finalise the reports tomorrow and will have them all on the table for the next session of the Legislative Assembly, which will decide if further action is warranted,” Mr Kirkconnell said.

Violent protesters attack peaceful ones in Athens ATHENS, Greece (AP) — Violent rioters attacked peaceful demonstrators with firebombs and stones Thursday as tens of thousands turned out in Athens to decry unpopular new austerity measures demanded by creditors to keep Greece afloat. As the second day of a general strike paralyzed the country, more than 50,000 peaceful demonstrators flooded downtown Syntagma Square outside parliament, the scene of violent protests on Wednesday. Creditors have demanded that Greece pass the extra austerity measures before they give the country more funds from a euro110 billion ($152 billion) bailout loan from

other eurozone countries and the International Monetary Fund. Greece says it will run out of money in midNovember without the next euro8 billion ($11 billion) installment. Greek lawmakers on Thursday were voting on details of the proposals, which include putting 30,000 public servants on reduced pay and suspending collective labor contracts. The demands have enraged ordinary Greeks. Communist party supporters taking part in the Thursday’s rally set up a cordon in front of parliament to prevent hard-liners from starting fights with police. But they came under repeated attacks by hundreds of masked

protesters in motorcycle helmets who threw gasoline bombs and chunks of marble into the crowd. Fights broke out as the Communist party supporters retaliated. Chaos ensued as protesters and masked youths armed with clubs charged each other, and riot police fired volleys of tear gas to separate the two sides.

Australians cheer Queen Elizabeth during boat trip CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Thousands of people cheered and waved from the banks of the Australian capital’s central lake as Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip, took a motor boat to a flower show Thursday in their first public appearance of a 10day tour of Australia. The 85-year-old queen wore a lilac hat and coat and her 90-year-old husband a hat to protect against the late morning spring sunshine as they waved to well-wishers from the open boat beneath an almost cloudless sky. The couple, who arrived Wednesday, appeared fresh despite the 11-hour time difference from their London home.

The fans who greeted the royal couple included Elizabeth Stewart, 83, who flew from her home in Lower Hutt, New Zealand, to see the monarch for the third time. Stewart first saw the queen when she visited New Zealand in 1954, less then two years after her coronation. The queen is the monarch of 16 countries, including Australia and neighboring New Zealand. Stewart said she disagrees with the Australian government’s position that the British monarch should be replaced as Australia’s head of state by a president who is an Australian citizen. “The queen gives us continuity,” Stewart said. “Presidents come

and go.”

Proud papa Sarkozy says wife, baby ‘very well’ PARIS (AP) — Proud papa Nicolas Sarkozy, the first French president to have a baby while in office, said Thursday he and wife Carla BruniSarkozy feel “a very profound happiness” over the birth of their first child and added that mother and daughter are doing very well. It was the French leader’s first official comments about the birth, which took place Wednesday at a maternity clinic in western Paris. He did not give the baby’s name, in keeping with the couple’s coyness throughout the pregnancy and labour. “We are lucky to have been blessed by to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

a new arrival,” Sarkozy told journalists on a visit to a waste management plant in western France. “All parents can understand the very profound happiness Carla and I feel, and at the same time everyone can understand that this happiness is all the more profound because it is private.” Privacy was the guiding principle of the baby’s hush-hush birth. Police officers posted outside the maternity clinic for the past weeks kept the journalists at bay, and it was largely the head of state’s frequent visits Wednesday that tipped the news media

off as to what was going on inside. The tight control over news of the birth appears to be part of a strategy aimed at portraying Sarkozy as fully absorbed in resolving the problems gripping France and Europe.

Healing and Sirach

Doctors, hospitals, Hospice, and rehabilitation centres colin.wilson@ieyenews.com have been in the news lately. At some time in our lives we have to go to a doctor or hospital to be healed. The same way an alcoholic and/or drug user will be admitted into a rehabilitation centre to ‘dry out’ and receive medical help for a cure. Hospice is caring that focuses on relieving and preventing the suffering of the symptoms of terminally ill patients. It also focuses on healing the emotional, spiritual and social problems of dealing with impeding death. This care can be given in institutions such as hospitals, nursing homes and even the dying person’s own home. A concert at Camana Bay was held recently to raise funds for our local branch of Hospice. The departure recently of head ophthalmologist, Dr. Jyotin Pandit, from the Lions Eye Clinic at the Cayman Islands Hospital left staff scrambling to reschedule patients at the busy clinic. There has been no word yet on when the renowned Indian surgeon Dr. Devi Shetty’s medical hospital is to commence construction here in East End. There is a proposal to build a rehabilitation centre here for patients struggling with alcohol addiction. Health Minister Hon. Mark Scotland said recently, “One of the biggest challenges is the culture whereby patients expect that they should be treated and not have to pay for it.” Dr. Steve Tomlinson, founder of Cayman’s private hospital, the Chrissie Tomlinson Memorial Hospital, echoed a similar sentiment. “The first place they (patients) want to go to is the US – they expect this at the very least if the care is not available here,” he said, “And it is government that ends up paying for it.” At least three people died recently in London with HIV after they stopped taking life saving drugs on the advice of their Evangelic Christian pastors.

of Sexual Health and HIV, in Hackney, London said, “We see patients quite often who will come having expressed the belief that if they pray frequently enough, their HIV will somehow be cured.” And it is not just AIDS (HIV) victims. There are many Christians who believe they do not need doctors to heal any illness they have. They just need to pray and if it doesn’t succeed, it’s because they did not have enough faith. Benny Hinn is a well known televangelist faith healer famous (or infamous) for his “Miracle Crusades”. This is based on Jesus Christ who through his ministry cured many sick people including raising Lazarus from the dead. St. Luke is an apostle and evangelist who was the first Christian physician on record. Many hospitals are named after him. There is no record of him saying there was no need for his profession. And then there is Sirach? Who? Jesus ben Sirach was a Jewish scribe who is attributed to have written the Apocryphal Book of Ecclesiasticus, also known as the Wisdom of Sirach or just Sirach. This week (Tue 18) was the feast day for St Luke and the first lesson appointed in the Episcopal and Roman Catholic churches is taken from this book (38:1-4,6-10,12-14). The last verses are important and read, “There may come a time when recovery lies in the hands of physicians, for they too pray to the Lord that he grant them success in diagnosis and in healing, for the sake of preserving life.” We therefore need healing at the hands of doctors, we need hospitals, we need rehabilitation centres and we need money to pay for all these things. But there is no charge for prayer. When we are really desperate. When all things we try fail. We all have that last trump card to play. May all the plans for our health care centres here come to fruition and also pray personally we will have no need of them. As a footnote: all iThoughts come from Ecclesiasticus (Sirach).

OPINION

Disappearing Where is the Island that once we knew – and the Caymanian people, the backbone of this place? They lived life happily, peacefully. Theirs was a hard life, but always, they had time to smile, reach out to each other, go to their ‘grounds’, harvesting their crops, sharing, and worshipping their God with love and thanksgiving. Times were hard, but life went on, quietly. The sea provided a livelihood, and the beaches, in their beauty were there for all. Sea grapes and coco plums, guinep, and

mangoes, breadfruit and ‘bread kind’ from the earth. The coastline protected by mangroves, fish and lobster, conch and wilkes were readily available. Where is the Cayman that we knew? West Bay Road traffic jams, high rise monstrosities, North Sound, the Wet Lands destroyed – construction everywhere – cars and concrete are all we see, and black topping everywhere. Cruise ships daily spewing out thousands of sparsely clad bodies who don’t even know where they are. Where have we

all gone and where are we going? The pace of life destroys the fun of Sunday drives into the country. Cars, bumper to bumper – development everywhere, trees and mangroves gone. Cost of living sky high, population explosion – millions of dollars spent – but what have the Cayman people achieved, what is the point of this unplanned, too rapid development - what is the good of this so called progress, when we have lost the Island we knew as home?

Gadhafi dead

With warped vision, Gadhafi maddened Libya

TRIPOLI, Libya (AP) — During nearly 42 years in power in Libya, Moammar Gadhafi was one of the world’s most eccentric dictators, so mercurial that he was both condemned and courted by the West, while he brutally warped his country with his idiosyncratic vision of autocratic rule until he was finally toppled by his own people. The modern Arab world’s longestruling figure, Libya’s “Brother Leader” displayed striking contrasts. He was a sponsor of terrorism whose regime was blamed for blowing up two passenger jets, who then helped the U.S. in the war on terror. He was an Arab nationalist who mocked Arab rulers. In the crowning paradox, he preached a “revolutionary” utopia of people power but ran a one-man dictatorship that fueled the revolution against him. His death on Thursday at age 69 — confirmed by Prime Minister Mahmoud Jibril — came as Libyan fighters defeated Gadhafi’s last holdouts in his hometown of Sirte, the last major site of resistance in the country. Their final declaration of victory came weeks after Gadhafi was swept from power by rebels who drove triumphantly into the capital of Tripoli on Aug. 21, capping a six-month civil war. “Dance, sing and fight!” Gadhafi had exhorted his followers even as his enemies were on the capital’s doorstep before fleeing into Libya’s hinterlands where his die-hard backers to blog visit www.ieyenews.com

had continued to battle the rebelsturned-rulers. Gadhafi leaves behind an oil-rich nation of 6.5 million traumatized by a rule that drained it of institutions while the ship of state was directed by the whims of one man and his family. Notorious for his extravagant outfits — ranging from white suits and sunglasses to military uniforms with frilled epaulets to brilliantly colored robes decorated with the map of Africa — he styled himself as a combination Bedouin chief and philosopher king. He reveled in infuriating leaders, whether in the West or the Middle East. U.S. President Ronald Reagan, after the 1986 bombing that killed U.S. servicemen in Berlin was blamed on Libya, branded him a “mad dog.” Former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, who fought a border war with Libya in the 1970s, wrote in his diary that Gadhafi was “mentally sick” and “needs treatment.” Behind the flamboyance and showmanship, associates say Gadhafi was meticulous in managing the levers of power. He intervened in decisions large and small and constantly met personally with tribal leaders and military officers whose support he maintained through lucrative posts. The sole constant was his grip on the country. Numerous coup and assassination attempts against him over the years mostly ended with public executions of the plotters, hanged in

city squares. The ultimate secret of his longevity lay in the vast oil reserves under his North African desert nation and in his capacity for drastic changes of course when necessary. The most spectacular U-turn came in late 2003. After years of denial, Libya acknowledged responsibility — though in a Gadhafi-esque twist of logic, not guilt — for the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, that killed 270 people. He agreed to pay up to $10 million to relatives of each victim. He also announced that Libya would dismantle its nuclear, chemical and biological weapons programs under international supervision. The rewards came fast. Within months, the U.S. lifted economic sanctions and resumed diplomatic ties. The European Union hosted Gadhafi in Brussels. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in 2008 became the highest-ranking U.S. official to visit the country in more than 50 years. Tony Blair, as British prime minister, visited him in Tripoli. International oil companies rushed to invest in Libya’s fields. Documents uncovered after Gadhafi’s fall revealed close cooperation between his intelligence services and the CIA in pursuing terror suspects after the 9/11 attacks, even before the U.S. lifted its designation of Libya as a sponsor of terror in 2006.

Marching to their own beat Marching Band photos by Christopher Tobutt

The Cayman Islands Marching Band with conductor, director and founder, Prof Chip Powell

Christopher Tobutt christopher.tobutt@ieyenews.com

The Cayman Islands Marching Band (CIMB) is a unique group of musicians who play all genres of music while executing precision manoeuvers that are intertwined with an extraordinary style of marching. The band was formed in 2008 by the band’s conductor and director, Prof Chip Powell, a music teacher a John Gray High School. It consists of young people from the ages of 11 to 18 from John Gray, Clifton Hunter, Cayman Prep and Cayman International School. The band practices hard twice a week in a John Gray classroom, and sometimes make use of the surrounding field and parking lot too. “We seem to have a ‘growing’ problem, which is a ‘good’ problem, so we may soon have to find another area to house our ever bourgeoning

group. At present, we have almost 45 members, but we are welcoming new members each day,” Prof. Powell said. The band is very inclusive in outlook: “We have a varied cultural, ethnic and religious make up within the group, and are inclusive of any wind and percussion musician in the Islands, so long as they are able to execute the physical manoeuvers with the music,” Prof. Powell continued. Recently, the band performed at Cayman’s Got Talent, dressed in red white and blue - the colours of the Cayman flag. “We take special pride in performing songs of heritage of the Cayman Islands,” Prof. Powell explained. The National Song, Beloved Isle Cayman, only performed with a unique Caribbean twist, features in the band’s varied repertoire which ranges in genre from pop, country & western, R&B to Jazz. There is also a special Cayman medley, featuring local favourites: That’s Cayman, Munzie’s Boat, Cayman Land, Long Time G’yal, and local singer/songwriter Andy Martin’s song, Hello, Cayman Brac. So far the band has performed at the Cayman National Cultural Foundation’s GimiStory, The National Awards for Arts & Culture, the Pirates’ Week parade, and the Agricultural show.

Prof Chip Powell, the band’s founder

Most recently, The CIMB scored the highest marks by the judges out of 23 competitors at the Cayman’s Got Talent semi-finals. Prof. Powell is grateful to all the people who have helped make the band possible, including the Cayman National Cultural Foundation who help to sponsor it. “Very soon, we will be including a support group made of parents up of members,” he added. Prof Powell believes in the band, and believes that they can be something much more than light entertainment: “My philosophy of education is to utilise music as a universal language to reach young people, and help them become successful and productive citizens of their home, school, immediate and global community through the discipline and emotional connection of music,” he says. “I envision this group becoming an institution in the Cayman Islands, to which people can look to represent their community and heritage; an institution which will stand for all time and be a beacon of pride for all Caymanians.” Anyone interested in joining The CIMB or having any questions may contact Professor Chip Powell at profpowell628@yahoo.com, or call 916-1629.

West Bay’s Miss Parchment, 15, crowned on 27 August at the Lions Centre at the 33rd annual Leo Club-sponsored Miss Teen Cayman pageant, on Wednesday recited the oath and accepted membership in the 36-year-old public-service club. Joining as an “honorary member”, Miss Parchment was joined on the dais by fellow inductees and “regular members” Thalia Gibson and William Peguero Jnr. “This is the first induction for 2011/2012,” said club president Cedric Gidarisingh, calling then three from the audience and administering the oath, “and so it is a most important occasion.”

The silent killer Hypertension

Dr. Brandi Propas info@ieyenews.com Brandi Propas is the newest addition to The International Medical Group. She is a registered dietician and her services are a welcome complement to the clinic.

Hypertension, or high blood pressure, affects an estimated 970 million people worldwide with numbers expected to increase to 1.56 billion by 2025. Hypertension is also called the Silent Killer as it is often asymptomatic, meaning people don’t feel any symptoms so can go a long time before being diagnosed with the disease. Hypertension is the single most important risk factor for stroke and also increases the risk for diabetes, heart disease and kidney failure. One of the contributing factors to the increasing rates of hypertension worldwide is the increased consumption of sodium. The average person consumes 3400 mg of sodium per day. The recommended intake is 1500mg a day so most of us are getting triple the amount that we need. Sodium is found in all types of salt. This includes Kosher salt, sea salt, smoked salt, and table salt so one type of salt is NOT healthier than the other. To give you an idea, 1 teaspoon of salt has 2325mg of sodium so a pinch here and a pinch there of salt on your food adds up

very quickly. It’s not just table salt that you need to be concerned about. Over 75% of sodium we consume comes from processed foods which include: pizza, cheese, deli slices, soups and sauces. Packaged and ready-to-eat foods and fast food are often high in sodium as are many restaurant meals. And even though breads, cereal and baked goods don’t taste salty they too are often high in sodium. As a general rule, if you want to decrease the amount of sodium in your diet stick to unprocessed food and try to cook at home rather than eating out. While it’s not always possible to cook everything from scratch, starting with one or two meals a week can make a big difference. Here are some more tips to help reduce the sodium in your diet.

At the grocery store: Read the labels of food packages. Use the % DV to help guide your choices. Less than 5% DV of sodium is a small amount and a good choise, over %15 DV is too high and should be avoided. Packaged foods should never contain more than 360mg per serving. Also look for phrases like “low sodium”, “sodium free” to choose products. Canned food is also high in sodium so buy fresh or frozen veggies as much as possible. If using canned

At home: Try to make meals from scratch once or twice a week. If this is not possible, experiment with making your own sauces and salad dressings. Cook rice and pasta without adding salt. Also experiment with fresh herbs to flavor food instead of reaching for the salt shaker.

At Restaurants: Ask for sauces, dressings and gravy on the side and use only small amounts or try using lemon or pepper instead of adding salt to flavor your food. Also go easy on condiments such as ketchup, pickles and cheese when order hamburgers and sandwiches. Choosing baked chicken instead of chicken wings or fingers will also help to reduce the amount of sodium. Instead of ordering French fries, order a baked potato or steamed veggies. These changes will also help to reduce the amount of fat in the meal. Check the nutrition information of menu items before you order and choose foods with less sodium. Many fast food restaurants have this information posted or i a pamphlet.

Try…

Instead of…

Fresh fruit and vegetables, unsalted popcorn or unsalted nuts for a snack Rice cooked in water or juice Yogurt Sandwiches made with roasted meat or poultry, eggs or natural peanut butter Fresh or dried herbs and spices, garlic, ginger, onion, vinegar and lemon and lime juice

Chips, salted pretzels or other salty snacks Rice cooked in salty broth Cottage cheese Sandwiches made with canned or deli meat Salt, kosher salt, sea salt, fleur de sel, gourmet salt, smoked salt, celery salt, garlic salt or onion salt

McLean nabs World Title Local jet-ski riders made more than just waves this month at the International Jet Sports Boating Association (IJSBA) 2011 World Finals at Lake Havasu City with some stellar performances. Riding for Yamaha’s Riva Racing/ Dean’s Team, Jordan McLean nabbed his first world title as he continued his winning streak in the Pro Runabout Limited class, claiming first place in every competition in his class on the national tour this summer, according to an article in Best of Boating. Other Cayman riders who placed were Roshad Goff with a 6th place in the Expert Runabout Open Class and Nathan McLean with a 9th place in the Amateur Runabout Limited class. Minister for Sports the Hon. Mark Scotland congratulated McLean and the other riders on their performances: “Jordan has proven himself to be a world class athlete. Not only is he riding for a very prestigious team, but he has proven that he is best in his class. “Winning the world title puts him right up there with all our other fine young sports stars that are showing the world what is possible. He is a fine role model to follow and I hope that many other young people will find inspiration in his climb to the top.

Jordan McLean in action.

“Moreover, we have a bunch of young riders that are already showing great potential and I want to congratulate everyone who competed in Arizona for a job well done. We are looking forward to many more world titles.” The Minister also commended the Cayman Islands Watercraft Association (CIWA) for developing the sport in the Cayman Islands. “We clearly have very talented young riders on the Islands and thanks to this progressive sports association, local racers get a shot at winning these big races as they can now

qualify by competing locally,” the Minister stated. CIWA President Vincent Ramgeet also congratulated the racers, noting that the IJSBA World Finals are one the most prestigious jet-ski races in the world with over 700 entries from 40 nations and approximately 50,000 race fans passing through the event over the course of the week. “It is simply great to see our racers do so well in such a prominent international race and I thank the Ministry of Sports and the Department of Tourism for supporting the trip.”
