Cayman children’s team wins Caribbean dressage competition The Cayman Children’s team came first in the Caribbean Equestrian Association (CEA)’s 2011 Dressage Competition hosted at the Equestrian Centre in George Town. The team, comprising Charlotte Hinds 15, Polly Serpell 13, and Thea Milward 12, outperformed the children in the other Caribbean Islands with an average score of 66%. Charlotte lead the team with an impressive score of 67% on the Dutch warm blood mare Kartouche, with Polly gaining score of 66% on her Pony, Me and My Shadow and Thea Millward a score of 65% on the Cayman-bred pony, Storm. The team came ahead of rival teams Barbados (second place) Jamaica (third) and Trinidad (fourth), each of which had been judged separately on different days in their own country. The National Coach Mary McTaggart said, “The standard of our young riders in Cayman is continually improving and we have a dedicated and ambitious young team. We are very lucky to have our very own dressage professional coach Jessica McTaggart who visited us for the month of November and prepared the riders for the show.” The CEA’s competitive events are divided into dressage and jumping sections with contestants travelling to other participating countries for the jumping section and using

borrowed horses, but staying in their own country and using their own horses for the Dressage section. Judge Susan Kolstad travelled from country to country in the CEA region judging each country’s horses and riders, and the three top scores in each category go forwards to be presented as the countries

children’s and adult team score. The Cayman Islands adult team comprising Jessica Mctaggart, Chloe Dudding and Mary Mctaggart also did Cayman proud, gaining third place in the dressage competition. Barbados won, and Bermuda gained second place. Trinidad came fourth and Jamaica, fifth.

Rapper C-Murder’s conviction, sentence upheld



NEW ORLEANS (AP) — A Louisiana appeals court has upheld the murder conviction and life sentence for rapper C-Murder. C-Murder, whose real name is Corey Miller, was convicted of shooting a teenager to death in 2002. A three-judge panel from the state’s 5th Circuit Court of Appeal on Wednesday rejected Miller’s argument that he didn’t get a fair trial. In 2009, a jury convicted Miller of second-degree murder for shooting 16-year-old Steve Thomas during a confrontation at a nightclub. Miller claims the judge who presided over his trial allowed jurors to hear prejudicial and unsubstantiated testimony that he threatened witnesses to the shooting. He also accused prosecutors of systematically eliminating black people from the jury. But the 5th Circuit rejected those arguments. One of Miller’s attorneys didn’t immediately return a call seeking comment Thursday.

Barbie doll suit NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The actress who played Elly May Clampett on the “The Beverly Hillbillies” has settled her lawsuit over a Barbie doll that uses the character’s name and likeness. An attorney for actress Donna Douglas says she settled with CBS and toymaker Mattel on Tuesday. Douglas’ lawsuit had sought at least $75,000. Details of the settlement were confidential. She claimed CBS Consumer Products Inc. and Mattel Inc. needed her approval for the Barbie. In court documents, CBS and Mattel said they didn’t need her OK because the network holds exclusive rights to the character.

Road plan is no solution Tad Stoner

A suggestion to use a back road to link the western part of Grand Cayman to Dart Realty’s “Eco Park”, east of Bodden Town, has been rejected as “not a solution at all”. Rejecting a proposal by Bodden Town MLA and Minister for the Environment Mark Scotland to Bodden Town where the “Eco Park” will be built use a two-lane residential road as a heavy-traffic link, spokesmen for Police Station. “I would hazard a guess,“ Mr the Coalition to Keep Bodden Town Dump Free said Anton Bodden Drive Anderson said, “that 20 families was entirely inadequate to handle the live along” the two-lane blacktop drive. ”It’s the fastest growing area industrial demand. “It’s a fast-growing residential in Bodden Town,” itself the fastestarea, and was intended originally to growing district in Grand Cayman. “That’s at least 100 people,” he route traffic around Bodden Town,” said, and the sole link to such inland spokesman Gregg Anderson said. “It has, however, since become a residential communities as Belford residential roadway. They have even Estates, Ena Close, Griffiin Manor, put in ‘sleeping policemen’,” road- Franklin Court, Lustrous Court, wide speed bumps, he said. “It’s all a Hawksbill Close and developments single route behind the [Bodden Town dotted along Lookout Close and Primary] school and comes out at the Verniece Bodden Drive. “The question of the moment, of graveyard. It does not address the noise course, is why Mr Scotland suggested and the stink. It’s not a solution at all.” Expanding on earlier comments to Anton Bodden Drive,” Mr Anderson iNews Cayman, Minister Scotland said, ”and it is probably to put a good this week disputed that garbage trucks face on the bad publicity they have would make as many as the feared been getting.” Another spokesman, while 400 trips per day to the new wastemanagement facility, and that they conceding that the alternate route “is would be routed along Condor Road certainly wider and less populated and Anton Bodden Drive, avoiding than the main road, ” said “the heavy traffic, according to Dart and Mr Bodden Town’s main road. Condor Road leaves Shamrock Scotland, will be diverted along a road Road at Bodden Town Primary with a public school at its beginning. School, intersecting Anton Bodden Are they not concerned with the safety Drive several hundred yards to of the young children? “The coalition wonders if the north. The drive makes a long loop, running parallel to the main government has now given the Bodden Town Road, returning to road to Dart, as well? Does Dart Shamrock Road at the Bodden Town now have a free rein to do as it likes

with our public roads?” Alain Beiner asked, alluding to the Dart realty-mandated closure of 2,500 feet of West Bay Road for company redevelopment of the old Marriott Courtyard Hotel. The hotel is one phase of a series of infrastructure investments by the Dart Realty-Government ForCayman Alliance, which has also proposed to close and “remediate” the George Town Landfill, moving it to a purpose-built “Eco Park” on 110 acres near Bodden Town’s Midland Acres. The 75-member Coalition to Keep Bodden Town Dump Free an association of district residents and business owners, formed in late October, responding to the plans. “In addition to the questions we’ve addressed to Mr. Scotland,” Mr Beiner said, “we’d also like to know if the residents along/near Anton Bodden Drive have been consulted? Will the present speed bumps be removed? Will all traffic except for local traffic (i.e. with a destination in the village of Bodden Town) be diverted along Anton Bodden Drive, and exactly how will drivers be ‘encouraged’ to use this route?” He also asked if public consultation would address changing Midland Acres agricultural-residential zoning to accommodate the “Eco Park” and if government or Dart would conduct an environmental Impact assessment on the area. “Who decided on Bodden Town for the site of a relocated dump?” Mr Beiner asked. “The statements by Dart and by Mr. Scotland in no way allay the concerns and fears of Bodden Town residents,” he said.

‘Synthetic’ marijuana is problem

SAN DIEGO (AP) — U.S. troops are increasingly using an herbal mix called “Spice” that mimics a marijuana high and can bring on hallucinations that last for days. Alarmed military officials have launched an aggressive testing programme that this year has led to the investigation of more than 1,100 suspected users. So-called “synthetic” pot has become popular nationwide in recent years. Two years ago, only 29 Marines and sailors were investigated for Spice. This year, the number topped 700. Those found guilty of using Spice are kicked out. The Air Force has punished 497 airmen, compared to last year’s 380. The Army does not track Spice investigations but says it has medically treated 119 soldiers. Military officials emphasize none was believed to be high while on duty.

Suspect gave bills to kids BOSTON (AP) — Boston police say a woman suspected of robbing a city bank was caught a short time later handing out dollar bills to children at a park. Police say workers at the Citizens Bank told them a woman walked into the branch just after 3 p.m. on Wednesday, passed a teller a note demanding money and warned she had a gun. She then left with an undisclosed amount of cash. A cab driver told police that a fare had told him that she just robbed a bank. Police found the suspect, Jasmin Rivera, at the park handing out money. Rivera was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation at her arraignment Thursday. A doctor told a judge she has serious mental health issues. A not guilty plea was entered on her behalf.

Jamaica’s opposition party wins big in elections KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP) — Jamaica’s opposition capitalised on discontent over the economy to return to power Thursday, as voters gave the country’s first female leader a second chance to govern the island. Supporters of former Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller, 66, shimmied and shouted in the capital, Kingston, as they heard that the center-right government of Prime Minister Andrew Holness had been defeated and their candidate had staged a dramatic political comeback in general elections. Holness, Jamaica’s youngest prime minister at 39, said the defeat will prompt a time of introspection and reflection for leaders of his Jamaica Labor Party to examine what went wrong. “I wish the new government well. We hope for the benefit of the country that they will do a good job,” said Holness, who warned during the campaign that an opposition win would scare away foreign investment and dash hopes of economic progress. While official results have not been released, elections director Orrette Fisher told The Associated Press that preliminary results showed Simpson Miller’s slightly left-of-center People’s National Party, or PNP, heading to victory. “Based on the margins, it appears safe to say” that Simpson Miller’s party won, Fisher said shortly after Jamaican newspapers and broadcasters called the election for her faction. He expected his office to release the official count and breakdown of parliamentary seats on Saturday. News station TVJ said the PNP won 41 seats in parliament and Holness’s Jamaica Labor Party 22. Simpson Miller is beloved by her supporters for her folksy, plainspoken style and is referred to affectionately as “Sista P” and “Comrade Leader.” She became Jamaica’s first female prime minister in March 2006 after she was picked by party delegates when P.J. Patterson retired as leader. But she was tossed out of office a year later in a narrow election defeat. On Thursday, she thanked her supporters at party headquarters in Kingston, where more than a thousand elated partisans decked out to blog visit

Andrew Holness

in the party’s color of orange swayed to reggae and soul tunes, waved flags and clapped hands. “I am humbled as I stand before you and I wish to thank the Jamaican people for their love, for their support and for giving the People’s National Party and the leader of the party her own mandate,” she said, after receiving hugs from numerous candidates, some crying. She has pledged to lift debt-wracked Jamaica out of poverty, secure foreign investment, and create jobs. Her party will face deep economic problems in this island of 2.8 million people, with a punishing debt of roughly $18.6 billion, or 130 per cent of gross domestic product. That’s a rate about 10 percentage points higher than debt-troubled Italy’s. Veteran opposition lawmaker Omar Davies said one of the first things the PNP will do is get “a true assessment of the state of the economy,” a dig at Holness’ party which was accused of rarely providing citizens with a clear picture of the island’s dire fiscal straits. Holness, who became prime minister two months ago after Bruce Golding, Jamaica’s leader since 2007, abruptly stepped down in October amid anemic public backing, won his parliamentary seat with 54 percent of the vote. Political commentator Patrick Bailey said Holness, who was a respected education minister before becoming prime minister, shouldn’t be blamed for the loss. “In fact, he is the one who made it competitive for the JLP,” Bailey said. Simpson Miller has been a stalwart of the People’s National Party since

Portia Simpson Miller

the 1970s. She paints herself as a champion of the poor and was first elected to Parliament in 1976 and became a Cabinet member in 1989. Partisans have long admired Simpson Miller as a Jamaican who was born in rural poverty and grew up in a Kingston ghetto, not far from the crumbling concrete jungle made famous by Bob Marley. During her brief tenure as prime minister, her support waned amid complaints she responded poorly to Hurricane Dean and was evasive about a scandal regarding a Dutch oil trading firm’s $460,000 payment to her political party leading up to 2007 elections. After she was defeated in 2007 elections, she remained leader of her party, setting the stage for a political comeback. “She cares about the ghetto people,” said Trishette Bond, a twenty-something resident of gritty Trench Town who wore an orange shirt and a bright orange wig to show her allegiance to the People’s National Party.

Did Cheetah from 1930s Tarzan flicks die? PALM HARBOR, Fla. (AP) — A Florida animal sanctuary says Cheetah, the chimpanzee sidekick in the Tarzan movies of the early 1930s, has died at 80. But other accounts call that claim into question. Debbie Cobb, outreach director at the Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor, said Wednesday that her grandparents acquired Cheetah around 1960 from “Tarzan” star Johnny Weissmuller and that the chimp appeared in Tarzan films between 1932 and 1934. During that period, Weissmuller made “Tarzan the Ape Man” and “Tarzan and His Mate.” But Cobb offered no documentation, saying it was destroyed in a 1995 fire. Also, some Hollywood accounts

indicate a chimpanzee by the name of Jiggs or Mr. Jiggs played Cheetah alongside Weissmuller early on and died in 1938. In addition, an 80-year-old chimpanzee would be extraordinarily old, perhaps the oldest ever known. According to many experts and Save the Chimps, another Florida sanctuary, chimpanzees in captivity generally live to between 40 and 60, though Lion Country Safari in Loxahatchee, Fla., says it has one that is around 73. A similar claim about another chimpanzee that supposedly played second banana to Weissmuller was debunked in 2008 in a Washington Post story. Writer R.D. Rosen discovered that

the primate, which lived in Palm Springs, Calif., was born around 1960, meaning it wasn’t oldest enough to have been in the Tarzan movies of Hollywood’s Golden Age.

Russia: Nuclear submarine fire finally out MOSCOW (AP) — Firefighters extinguished a massive fire aboard a docked Russian nuclear submarine Friday as some crew members remained inside, officials said, giving assurances that there was no radiation leak and the vessel’s nuclear-tipped missiles were not on board. Military prosecutors have launched an investigation into whether safety regulations were breached. President Dmitry Medvedev summoned top Cabinet officials to report on the situation and demanded punishment for anyone found responsible. The fire broke out Thursday

at an Arctic shipyard outside the northwestern Russian city of Murmansk where the submarine Yekaterinburg was in dry-dock. The blaze, which shot orange flames high into the air through the night, was put out Friday afternoon and firefighters continued to spray the vessel with water to cool it down, Emergency Situations Minister Sergei Shoigu said. Russian state television earlier showed the rubber-coated hull of the submarine still smoldering, with firefighters gathering around it and some standing on top to douse it with water. Most modern submarines’ outer


hulls are covered with rubber to make them less noisy and more difficult for an enemy to detect. Seven members of the submarine crew were hospitalised after inhaling poisonous carbon monoxide fumes from the fire, Shoigu said.

Two dead, 61 hurt in 40-vehicle New Orleans pileup NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Two men died and 61 other people were injured Thursday in a pre-dawn pileup involving about 40 cars, vans and other vehicles on a busy interstate that crosses New Orleans, closing the route for hours both ways, police said. Drivers said they drove into thick smoke or fog that abruptly limited visibility on westbound lanes of Interstate 10 heading across eastern New Orleans. Those who came upon the scene said they heard injured motorists pleading for assistance. “You just hear all kinds of calls and people screaming for help,” tow to blog visit

truck driver Wesley Ratcliff told local broadcaster WWL-TV. In 13 years responding to wrecks, he added, “this is the worst I’ve ever seen it.” Officer Garry Flot, a police spokesman, would not talk about possible causes, including whether those may have included smoke or fog. All lanes were reopened late Thursday afternoon as the investigation continued, letting commuters head home at rush hour. The highway is heavily trafficked, a major corridor for thousands of commuters who enter New Orleans each day from its eastern suburbs

and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Those driving the route at the time of the wrecks said they suddenly found themselves in utter darkness, unable to see the lights of cars ahead.

The Editor Speaks

iNews Cayman: Our first “year”

Colin Wilson

I almost cannot believe we have come to the end of our first year (since May from the first published edition). Joan and I started planning this around November last year but it was from January when we really started the wheels turning. It was nonstop from then. I had spent nearly seven years in semi-retirement, doing a little quantity surveying (I am a Chartered Builder) from an office by Burger King and then working from home trying to make a living out of writing stage and screen plays. It was carried out all in my own sweet time and at a very leisurely pace. So what possessed Joan and I to start a newspaper? Not just a copycat of the two newspapers currently being published here, but a new concept. A piece of madness? Probably. Our first month’s publications were met with very mixed reviews. Some liked the size and others didn’t comparing it to a “school newspaper.” The “old school” – the professional bankers, accountants, lawyers, etc. – nearly all hated it. Some even laughed. A media mogul, who I had thought was a friend and had helped in his early days here, was almost vitriolic in his opinion. He hated it and said so. Some other businessmen who had been my partners in the Television Station CITN voiced a similar opinion albeit not as viciously. It was a general opinion we wouldn’t last three months. Joan and I did listen to the criticism and did make some changes but not to the size of the publication. We also completely changed the website ( making it interactive so people could post comments and allowing videos to be shown. You can also download the whole publication in its printed form and/or view it online for free. We also publish nearly the entire printed edition in colour because that’s what our advertisers wanted and without them we don’t have a publication. The style and content of the publication has changed. We feature more local stories and in a ‘punchy’ UK tabloid style which includes all the facts without the ‘fluff’. My editorials have become more controversial – sometimes enraging our leaders – but not done with any malice. Written after listening to you, the public, and our loyal readers. As for the size of the publication? Opinions on that are changing. Gradually we are winning

more and more of you around – even the “old school”. There are still some doubters (even Steve Jobs had them) and I still get emails “strongly advising” me to change to tabloid newsprint size from a very trusted friend but that is not the way forward. It is my opinion and I will stand or fall by it. It was once the opinion the world was flat! We are, however, going to make a minor change. The frontispiece (which includes the original back page) will be 11” x 17” in size and to all appearances will mimic the size of the other news publications. However, appearances aren’t always what they seem and once it is in your hands it will fold up and inside will read and look exactly as it does now including the stapling. The reason for this is on the news stands, especially in the supermarkets, the newspaper gets almost lost alongside the other publications and doesn’t look like a newspaper. The other newspapers very often get placed on top of it and we hear this complaint almost every day from you. You often have difficulty in finding it and we can’t have that. It is my turn now to thank all of you. We now sell nearly all our printed copies, with requests to print more, and our website now attracts a staggering ten thousand visitors per day! Every month this figure increases. We must be doing something right! International major publications in the UK and the USA have quoted from us and linked back to our website. A lot of our features are republished in web magazines with some translated into Chinese! We have come a long way in such a very short time. Last and not least we thank our advertisers. It has been a very hard year for you and money has and still is tight. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and it is shining brighter. The US and UK economies are starting to improve and I expect to see a big improvement here, too. iNews Cayman is branching out into other fields, too, but still closely allied to this newspaper. Watch this space for some very exciting developments. We will be offering advertisers some great deals and promotions in the coming weeks and our readers will also see more pages, more stories, more features, etc. Bigger, brighter, bolder and better. A very Happy New Year to each and every one of you. And again - THANK YOU. Joan and Colin Wilson

New Year Resolutions Georgina Wilcox

How many resolutions are actually kept? I found that 50% of resolutions are broken within the first two weeks and by the end of January a full 95% of resolutions are abandoned. Only 5% of New Years resolutions are kept beyond January. The majority of resolutions fail due to: 1. Procrastination 2. Lack of discipline 3. No game plan 4. Doing it alone 5. Fear The majority of resolutions fail because only a small percentage of people with resolutions ever do something about it. Whatever your goals are for New Year 2012, put them into action because action creates results. Let me help with some tips I have learnt. You don’t have to follow all of them, although you should, and don’t let the number 5 listed failure be the number one cause of your undoing. 1. Schedule a meeting to map your way You wouldn’t drive anywhere without knowing the way, why would you feel any different for something as important as you. Ask yourself an important question like, “Where do I want to be, one year from now?” And write down your response. This will give you a clear indication on the direction you need to go. 2. Have a daily planning system We know from above it would be just plain wrong to drive somewhere without knowing the way. It’s just as important to know why you’re going there. Writing down your goals will effectively prove their worth to you, and give you the reason to start driving toward them. 3. Define your key results Key results provide an indication of your progress toward your goals. These will be milestones or signs that you’re heading in the right direction. to blog visit

It’s important to determine your key results and write them down, so you know you’re on track. 4. Take action Action creates results. Now is the time to take everything you know about your desired goals, and prioritise your activities to achieve results. You can do this by selecting the most productive actions to reach your key results. Remember to write these down so you have a concise roadmap to succeed. 5. Separate reality from perception See the reality of the situation for what it is. Be rational and get clear on the facts. Soul search and explore your perception of the situation at hand.

a picture of something or someone you love. Keep repeating this and soon your brain will associate your fear trigger with something much more pleasurable. 11. Consider the worst Imagine the worst that can happen and come up with strategies that avoid or lessen the likelihood of it happening. What can you put in place to ensure that the worst-case scenario never happens? 12. Look at the glass half full Perception is a very powerful thing. And how you feel about your situation dictates how you respond. So think positively and you’ll give yourself a much better chance of success.

6. Identify the trigger Isolate the specific aspects of the situation that trigger your fearful thoughts. What’s the worst that could happen? Change the way you look at these triggers and you will immediately change the way you react.

13. Learn how to create space Because fear happens in the emotional part of the brain, it’s natural to act instinctively. So when fear rises, break the fear cycle by stopping, creating space and breathing. This will give you time to calm down and allow your rational brain time to catch up.

7. Know where fear lives in your body Be in tune with where your fear lives in your body. Use it as an indicator to tell you when something needs to be addressed. What you are aware of you can act on.

14: Make it safe When you feel safe, there is no need for fear. One of the best ways to overcome fear is to create the safest environment possible. And that’s why it’s important to practice, practice and practice again.

8. Become an observer When you observe something, you do it from a detached place. So if you become an observer of your fear, then you’re not in it and reacting instinctively.

15. Give yourself a reward If you’ve followed the above for any length of time you’re bound to be making accomplishments. Rewarding yourself will motivate you to further reach your goals. You can now appreciate the fact that you are one of the motivated 5% who made it! Pat yourself on the back - you deserve it.

9. Listen to your inner talk Monitor your inner conversations. When you hear negative self-talk, stop and change the script to positive talk. Keep repeating it. 10. Create a new association When you feel fear, conjure up

Once you’ve experienced the power of this kind of goal setting, it will be hard to do it any other way. But don’t delay; take the time right now to define your goals for 2012.

North Korea vows no softening despite new leader PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) — North Korea warned the world Friday there would be no softening of its position toward South Korea’s government after Kim Jong Il’s death as Pyongyang strengthened his son and heir’s authority with a new title: Great Leader. North Korea’s powerful National Defense Commission said that the country would never deal with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak, a conservative who stopped a nostrings-attached aid policy toward the North in 2008. The stern message also said North Korea was uniting around Kim Jong Un, referring to him for the first time with the title Great Leader — previously used for his father — in a clear message of continuity. It was the latest incremental step in a burgeoning personality cult around the son following the Dec. 17 death of Kim Jong Il. The younger Kim on Thursday was pronounced Supreme Leader of the ruling party, military and people at a massive public gathering on the final day of official mourning for his father. The top levels of government appear to have rallied around Kim Jong Un, who is in his late 20s, in the wake of his father’s death. Still, given his inexperience and age, there are questions outside North Korea about his leadership of a nation engaged in delicate negotiations over its nuclear programme and grappling with decades of economic hardship and chronic food shortages. “We declare solemnly and confidently that the foolish politicians around the world, including the puppet group in South Korea, should not expect any change from us,” the National Defense Commission said. “We will never deal with the traitor group of Lee Myung-bak.” In a bellicose voice, a female news anchor for state TV read the National Defense Commission statement, saying the “evil misdeeds” of the Lee administration reached a peak when it prevented South Koreans from visiting North Korea to pay respects to Kim Jong Il, except for two delegations led by a former first lady


New North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, center, presides over a national memorial service for his late father Kim Jong Il at Kim Il Sung Square in Pyongyang, North Korea.

and a business leader, both of whose husbands had ties to North Korea. North Korea had said foreign official delegations would not be allowed at the funeral but that it would welcome any South Koreans who wanted to travel to pay respects to Kim. “Even though we lost Kim Jong Il, we have the dear respected Kim Jong Un,” Kang Chol Bok, a 28-year-old officer of the Korean People’s Internal Security Forces, told The Associated Press. “We will turn our profound sorrow into strength and courage.” The North’s statement is a warning for Seoul not to take the new leadership lightly, said Koh Yuhwan, a North Korea expert at Seoul’s Dongguk University. “It is also raising the stakes in case the South wants better relations so Pyongyang can extract greater concessions” during any later talks, Koh said. He added that it’s “too early to say the North is dashing hopes for reforms.” While blasting the South’s leader, the North also offered a bit of hope for improved ties with the South, saying it “will continue to push hard toward the path of improved relations.” But it added that any better ties won’t be “based on the deceitful ploys South Korea is employing by mixing ‘toughness’ and ‘flexibility.’” Seoul has signaled a change in its approach toward Pyongyang in recent months, saying it will be more flexible in dealing with the North. South Korea’s Unification Ministry will maintain its North Korea policy and not react to every statement out of Pyongyang, according to a ministry official who declined to be identified citing the sensitivity of the relations between the countries.

On Thursday, a somber Kim Jong Un stood with his head bowed at the Grand People’s Study House, overlooking Kim Il Sung Square, named for his grandfather, who founded modern North Korea. A huge crowd of mourners gathered below. Kim Jong Un was flanked by top party and military officials, including Kim Jong Il’s younger sister, Kim Kyong Hui, and her husband, Jang Song Thaek, who are expected to serve as mentors of their young nephew. “The father’s plan is being implemented,” Ralph Cossa, president of Pacific Forum CSIS, a Hawaii-based think tank, said of the transfer of power. “All of these guys have a vested interest in the system and a vested interest in demonstrating stability. The last thing they want to do is create havoc.” Titles are important in North Korea and part of the myth-building surrounding the Kim family legacy. Kim Il Sung, the country’s first and only president, retains the title Eternal President even after his death. Kim Jong Il held three main positions: chairman of the National Defense Commission, general secretary of the Workers’ Party and supreme commander of the Korean People’s Army. According to the constitution, his position as chairman of the National Defense Commission made him Supreme Leader of North Korea. Kim Jong Un was made a four-star general last year and appointed a vice chairman of the Central Military Commission of the Workers’ Party. Since his father’s death, North Korean officials and state media have given him a series of new titles: Great Successor, Supreme Leader and now Great Leader. to blog visit

UDP Rejects No-confidence Motion Anglin warns of serious consequences Tad Stoner

Thieves strike again Page 7

Richard Coles debuts as Head of Cayman Finance The ruling United Democratic Party on Thursday rejected a noconfidence motion filed earlier by Leader of the Opposition Alden McLaughlin, calling the 24 point document disruptive, reckless, and destabilising. Minister of Education Rolston Anglin warned the motion was likely to have serious consequences, raising the spectre of social disorder. “The Opposition is seeking to disrupt the progress we have made,” he said. “This destablising tactic is serious, and there may be more to come – there may be a call for marches, for petitions and other civil unrest. “This is reckless, unwarranted and an abuse of power,” he said. “It is not good for the islands or its residents. This is a ploy to disrupt progress and create uncertainty, and to negate our efforts on the economy and finance. “We have worked to create jobs,” Mr. Anglin said, listing official efforts to alleviate various economic and social problems. “Our issue is to

make life better for the residents of the Cayman Islands.” Mr. Anglin was central to the full panel of UDP legislators, offering a united front against Mr. McLaughlin’s motion. Filed and accepted at the Legislative Assembly on Wednesday morning, Mr. McLaughlin’s private member’s bill, titled “Lack of Confidence in the Government”, called on the House to declare its loss of faith in Premier McKeeva Bush and the UDP administration. Citing a litany of aborted plans, failed intentions and unfinished projects during the last two years, the two page document accused Mr. Bush of unilateral decision making, contravention of due process and disregard for local residents and the consequences of his failures. While Mr. Anglin conceded the right of Mr. McLaughlin and his People’s Progressive Movement to lodge the no-confidence motion, he said both the intentions and timing were ill advised. “It is a fundamental tenet

An elated Cayman Islands swim team has returned home from Barbados with seven medals, including four gold, two bronze and one silver at this years CARIFTA swimming competition. Lara Butler was Cayman’s star swimmer with four wins and attaining gold medals in the 100m and 200m fly as well as the 200 and 400m individual medley all of which in the girls’ 15-17 age group. Catriona McRae and Geoff Butler added to Cayman’s medal count. Catriona placed second in the 100m backstroke (girls 11-12) and both swimmers came third in the 200m backstroke (girls 11-12) and the 1500m freestyle (boys 1517), respectively. Podium places apart, the entire team pushed the limits with athletes smashing their own 351 Dorcy DR. personal records, clocking 21 new Industrial Park,personal Georgebest Town times on the first day PO Box 327 alone. Performances were no doubt spurred on by Head Coach Dominic Ross’ promise to shave a little bit of hair for each athlete posting a new personal best time. A very delighted Hon. Minister of Sport Mark Scotland congratulated

of democracy to challenge the government, but it should be used advisedly and with due care. “We need to stand united against such behaviour,” he said. “We unequivocally support our Premier ... and we believe we can create a better Cayman,” Mr. Anglin said. To pass, the no-confidence bill first has to come to the floor of the Legislative Assembly, and then gain the support of two thirds of the 15 elected legislators in a secret ballot. Motions proposed by private members are frequently neglected, rarely gaining the floor for debate. Electoral support for the bill is even less certain. While the assembly’s five PPM representatives are likely to vote favourably, approval will be in the hands of North Side independent Ezzard Miller and four UDP members. The constitution stipulates that after a successful no-confidence motion, the Governor must consult with the ruling party to form an alternate government or, in the event of failure, call a new election.

A day of wild expletive-ridden testimony Grand Court finished on Monday as defe lawyers prepared a motion likely to bring an e to the obstruction of justice trial of Bodden To MLA Dwayne Seymour this morning. Mr Seymour is charged with an attempt obstruct the course of justice after a 1 May 20 fistfight between himself and Miami-based fitn instructor Garrone Yap, in which the MLA alleged to have told a security guard at the Gra Cayman Beach Suites not to speak to authori about the incident. Acting for Mr Seymour, attorney St McField made much of Jamaican and US accen seeking inconsistencies in the testimony both Mr Yap and hotel guard Adrian Bowen Jamaican national. “Mr Seymour said to you: ‘Ya na say nuth I was na here.‘,” Mr McField told Mr Bowen. “ did not say ‘you did not see anything. I was here.’ Yet when you spoke to him earlier ab cars and room keys, he spoke in good English. Yes,” Mr Bowen replied, “but he was talk like a Caymanian [in his instructions].” Mr Seymour had gone to the hotel t Saturday evening to confront the fitness instruc about an extra-marital affair he was conduct with his wife Melanie Seymour. The MLA approached Mr Yap in the drivew of the hotel, asking him “what the f*** are y doing on my island?” “I had not realized it was your island,” Mr Y responded. “She’s a f***ing whore and has slept with o 10-plus men. This is the s*** I am dealing wit Mr Seymour allegedly answered.

Djokovic downs Federer in Abu Dhabi exhibition ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — Top-ranked Novak Djokovic swept aside Roger Federer 6-2, 6-1 Friday and will play David Ferrer in the final of the World Tennis Championship exhibition. The fifth-ranked Ferrer defeated second-ranked Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-2 in the other semifinal. Nadal, who won the tournament the past two years, was nursing a sore shoulder and never seriously challenged his fellow Spaniard. Nadal said his shoulder “felt OK, not perfect” since injuring it in November, but he still planned to play at the season-opening ATP tournament in Doha next week. Nadal announced Thursday that

Roger Federer

after the Australian Open, he’ll rest his shoulder for several weeks in February. “I knew before coming here that I was not ready to win a match against David Ferrer, not to win a match against Djokovic or Federer,” Nadal said. “But I am ready to spend hours on court without risk of injury. That is the most important thing. I need this transition, hours of practice. If I am here, I will probably have a better feeling for Doha.” Djokovic showed plenty of the dominant play that helped him win three Grand Slam titles and amass a 70-6 record last season. The 24-year-old Serb twice broke No. 3 Federer in the first set and ran off nine games in a row in a one-sided affair that lasted only 44 minutes. “It is the perfect start to season. I played great,” Djokovic said. “It’s something that makes me very happy.” Djokovic said fans shouldn’t read too much into his win over Federer, against whom he had a 4-1 record in 2011, including victories at the Australian Open and U.S. Open. Djokovic attributed his win in Abu Dhabi to having a match under his belt — a win over Gael Monfils

Novak Djokovic

on Thursday — and a quick start that gave him momentum and prompted Federer to make several unforced errors. “He has won over 15 matches at the end of 2011, so I’m sure he won’t feel down after this loss here,” Djokovic said. “His main goal here is to get a couple of matches under his belt, as it is for all of us.” Federer apologized to the crowd for disappointing them with his quick exit and promised to play better Saturday when faces Nadal for third place. He said he felt “good overall” and “was moving well” but that he just was unable to chase down Djokovic’s groundstrokes that repeatedly caught the corners.

Florida State rallies to beat Notre Dame ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — There were moments during the Champs Sports Bowl when Florida State and Notre Dame resembled the dominant programmes they were a decade ago. There also were moments when it was clear that though both have made progress the past two years under their young, eager coaches, it’s not time to celebrate their returns just yet. That sentiment was not lost on Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher after the No. 25 Seminoles rallied to beat the Irish 18-14 on Thursday night. “This team has been through a lot,” Fisher said. “We’ve had a lot of trials and tribulations with injuries, tightly played games, and a lot of


people doubted it. But I said all along this team has a special character to it. It always does. It competes.” He was proud of how his team overcame a dismal first half and 14-point third-quarter deficit. E.J. Manuel threw two touchdown passes, and Dustin Hopkins made two field goals to help to the Seminoles earn their fourth straight bowl victory and second straight under Fisher. Florida State receiver Rashad Greene, who caught one of Manuel’s touchdown passes and had a teamhigh five catches for 99 yards, was selected the game’s MVP. It all helped put a happy face on a night when the Seminoles’ offensive line surrendered at least five sacks

for the second time this year and the offense had a fumble returned for a touchdown. Due to injuries, Fisher was forced to start four freshmen on the line. The Seminoles finished the game with 290 yards, went 3 for 14 on third down, and got an efficient night from Manuel. He played behind a young offensive line, but was 20 for 31 passing for 249 yards. Manuel said none of the early miscues mattered at the end of the game, though. “We had a very good finish,” Manuel said. “We play for each other, not individual stats and performance. We just beat Notre Dame. We’re going to feel good for months.” to blog visit

Durant leads Thunder past Mavericks 104-102 OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Kevin Durant thought he might have just given away a victory and let the Dallas Mavericks steal another one in heartbreaking fashion. Then he found a way to take it right back. Durant scored 30 points and hit a 3-pointer at the final buzzer to lift the Oklahoma City Thunder to a 104-102 win against Dallas on Thursday night in a rematch of last season’s Western Conference finals. “As a kid, of course you dream about hitting a game-winning shot in the NBA,” said Durant, who has hit two other game-winners at the buzzer in his five seasons. “It’s a dream come true.” The Thunder let Dallas wipe away a five-point deficit in the final 46 seconds to go ahead on Vince Carter’s 3-pointer with 1.4 seconds remaining. That was just enough time for Thabo Sefolosha to get the ball to Durant, who drilled a 3 from the right wing that improved his team to 4-0. “It was crazy, a crazy course of events,” Durant said. “When two tough teams always go at it, it always comes down to the last play.” Dirk Nowitzki had 29 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Mavericks, whose title defense is off to a 0-3 start. Dallas had been blown out in its first two losses against Miami and Denver before

letting a close one slip away. “I think the more we go out and just play the game itself more, good things happen on the court,” Shawn Marion said. “We’ve got to just go out there and stop worrying about other things and just go out there and just play the game and just play hard.” Russell Westbrook had 16 points in his second straight subpar performance, but he made up for it with a few critical plays down the stretch. He started the game 3 for 11 — with one of the makes coming when Jason Kidd blocked his shot and Brendan Haywood tipped it up and in — and had seven turnovers before getting a longer-than-usual benching in favor of Eric Maynor. Westbrook returned when the game got close midway through the fourth quarter, providing a momentary lead with a two-handed breakaway dunk that turned into a three-point play. He followed that with a 17-footer from LOCAL COURSE SCHEDULE - JANUARY 2012 the right wing for a 96-93 lead, but the Course Day Time Cost Mavericks — who made it a habit to Computer Literacy TTh 6.00 pm US $300 stage late comebacks against Oklahoma Microsoft Office Applications MW 6.00 pm US $300 City in last season’s West finals — had a PC Support and Maintenance TTh 6.00 pm US $300 CISCO IT Essentials (Feb) TTh 6.00 pm US $800 few tricks left.

himself for going for a block against Nowitzki and leaving Carter open. Durant returned to the bench for a timeout, with rookie Reggie Jackson screaming encouragement that he was going to hit the game-winner. “I just tried to be confident, tell myself I could make it and luckily I did,” Durant said. “It’s special to hit a game-winner,” he added. “The season’s still young. To beat the champs in the early season is always pretty cool, but we’ve got to move on and get ready for the next game.” Ibaka finished with 16 points, eight rebounds and three blocks for Oklahoma City. Terry had 16 points and nine assists, and Delonte West scored 15 for the Mavericks, who rallied from 15 points down in the final 5 minutes of regulation in Game 4 of the West finals — the teams’ last meeting that counted in the arena. Dallas also overcame an eight-point, fourthquarter deficit in the clinching Game 5.

Chelsea agree deal for Cahill Bolton manager Owen Coyle says the club have agreed a fee with Chelsea for defender Gary Cahill. Chelsea are short of cover in central defence, with Alex out in the cold after handing in a transfer request. Coyle said: “There has been a fee agreed between the clubs and we have now given Gary’s representatives permission to speak to Chelsea.” However, Chelsea boss Andre VillasBoas revealed they were still “miles apart” from Cahill over personal terms. The 26-year-old is out of contract with Bolton at the end of the season. And Coyle added: “I have said to Gary that he has to be focused on giving everything for Bolton Wanderers, because he knows Bolton Wanderers has been terrific for him just as much as Gary has been for us.” However, Villas-Boas said the deal was still far from being finalised. “We’re still miles apart regarding

agreement with the player,” he said. “We’ll continue to monitor this situation as we continue to monitor others. He revealed his admiration for the Bolton defender though. “I think his technical attributes are immense and his pace is fantastic as well,” Villas-Boas said. “There are weaknesses and they are also related to the collective weaknesses of Bolton. “He’s a player that at international level has been playing well. He can add to this squad or any squad in the Premier League.” Villas-Boas revealed midfielder Josh McEachran would not be joining Bolton on loan but could move to another club. Cahill, who joined Bolton in a £5m move from Aston Villa in January 2008, made his England debut against Ghana in March 2011 and scored his first international goal in the 3-0 victory over Bulgaria

in September. If Cahill is indeed to leave Wanderers in the next few days, Coyle will view it as a blessing that the move is occurring early in the January transfer window, giving him a chance to reinvest the money in new players.

Henry set for Arsenal return Thierry Henry will sign a two-month loan with Arsenal if insurance can be arranged with the New York Red Bulls, Arsene Wenger has confirmed. The former Arsenal captain, 34, has been training with the club during the Major League Soccer off-season. Gunners boss Wenger said: “For two months it certainly will happen. I don’t take care of the agreement and insurance and that is not completed. “We cannot announce anything [now] because the paperwork is not done.” With Gervinho and Marouane Chamakh set to depart for the Africa Cup of Nations in January, the Frenchman would offer back-up to captain Robin van Persie. Henry is Arsenal’s all-time leading goalscorer, with 226 goals in 370 appearances for the club before he moved to Barcelona in June 2007. Wenger said: “To cover for two months is ideal. He has the experience and the quality. He knows the club to blog visit

and can help the players on and off the pitch. “He has exceptional talent and is a very intelligent man. It can only be positive. “He still has class, pace and quality. He is here to help the club he loves. But we must not put too much pressure on him, he is 34. He needs two good weeks’ work. He is here to help - not suddenly be the main player.” The French forward does not have to return to the New York Red Bulls until March, which means he could feature in seven Premier League games, including key encounters against Manchester United and Tottenham, as well as FA Cup ties and the first leg of Arsenal’s Champions League last-16 clash against AC Milan. If agreement is reached with the Red Bulls, he could feature in Arsenal’s FA Cup third-round tie against Leeds on 9 January. A statue of Henry was recently installed outside the Emirates Stadium.

Kenny backs Andy to shine Paul Kennedy

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish insists striker Andy Carroll is not struggling for confidence. The club’s record signing has scored three goals in 19 appearances this season and only five in 28 since his £35m move to Anfield. “I don’t think self-belief is a problem for Andy Carroll, I don’t see why it should be,” Dalglish said. Carroll, 22, could make his second consecutive start for Liverpool against his old club Newcastle today. He made his first start in four matches in Boxing Day’s 1-1 draw with Blackburn and could have scored had it not been for two good saves by Rovers goalkeeper Mark Bunn. Dalglish said: “There is nothing to say he is short of belief and there is no evidence he should be. “One game he played in we went down to nine men [the 4-0 defeat by Tottenham] and another [the loss at Fulham] we had another sent off. “I think yourselves [the media] have a bigger problem with Andy than anyone else. “This week is understandable because it is against Newcastle but I don’t understand the rest of the stuff.” Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, who reluctantly sold Carroll, has backed him to regain his form and add to his three England caps. “He hasn’t really had a run in that Liverpool side and like all strikers, he probably needs a run,” Pardew said. “He’s a great lad and a great player. I like Andy. “It was disappointing to see him left out of the England squad the last time because I think he can be an England player and England’s number nine. “He is going through a period of transition at a new club, finding his feet and finding out that they play slightly differently to how we did here, but he will find his way.
