hris Gaylehas beenreplaced by theallrounder Darren Sam-myas captain of theWest Indies cricketteam in a shake-upthat has also resultedinBrendan Nashbeinghanded the vice-captaincy. However,Gayle has kept hisspot in the squadfor the three-Testtour of Sri Lanka this month, despiteturning down acentral contractwith the WICB last month.The board has also demotedDwayne Bravo,whowas the vice-captain under Gayle but like his cap-tain did not agree to a new WICB deal. The pair,along with Kieron Pollard, have forged lucrativeTwenty20 careers in domestic tournaments includ-ing the IPL and refused central contracts whichstipulated that they must make themselves availa-ble for the West Indies team at all times.Another surprise has been the omission of testbatsman Ramnaresh Sarwan from the squad to tour Sri Lanka.Gayle led West Indies to three wins in 20 Tests ascaptain, and they sit seventh on the ICC Test rank-ings list and eighth in the ODI rankings. Sammysaid he was looking forward to the challenge of leading the side, even though in Sri Lanka thesquad will be missing several experienced men,including thenow un-contractedDenesh Ramdin,Ramnaresh Sarwan and Jerome Taylor."Being appointed West Indies captain is an honor and distinction which I will treat with the highestregard and dignity," Sammy said. "I believe my cap-taincy of the Windward Islands, a young team whichI have been molding into playing consistently com-petitive cricket, will stand me in good stead as WestIndies captain as we work on building a team for the future."I have always given my all when I prepare and playfor the West Indies and nothing will change now. Iknow this will be a difficult challenge and I will takethe torch from Chris and hold it high as we forgeahead. I have been playing for the West Indiessince 2004 and over those six years I have builtstrong relationships with many players and I expectto have the full support of the squad."

Orlando and Miami.
During his visit to Orlando Prime Minister Hinds addressed a townhall meeng and recepon at the Timehri Banquet Hall, was guest of honor at a dinner hosted by the Guyanese owned Circa restaurant inWinter Park, toured the Guyanese owned supermarket CaribbeanSupercenter on West Colonial Drive and visited the Chelonian Ins-tute in Oviedo which conducts research and tagging of sea turtles inGuyana.
Hinds told the gathering of Guyanese at the town hall meeng thatsignicant opportunies exist for the import of non
tradional Guya-nese produce and products nong that his government had put inplace incenves and improved infrastructure including the bridgeacross the Berbice River and cold storage facilies at the main airportwhich “are helping to ensure increased producon and reliable andmely transport of products.” He said both the Guyana Governmentand the private sector at home would be open and eager to discusswith Florida business persons strategies for increasing trade betweenthe two locaons.
During his visit to Caribbean Supercenter supermarket the primeminister saw the range of Guyanese products on sale but was of theview that the range could be expanded signicantly. However, ownerof the establishment, Naraine Moonesar, explained that there wereconstraints to imporng many products from Guyana which was notthe case with imports from Trinidad and Jamaica.
The prime minister in turn argued that much of the products andproduce from Guyana were not the same as those exported fromTrinidad and Jamaica and were subject to “dierent treatment” bythe various US agencies such as the Food and Drug Administraon.He added that many of the products qualied for, and were in factbeing exported to New York but that due to Florida’s climate exportsdirectly to this State were treated dierently.
The prime minister’s program during his visit to Central Florida wasarranged by Florida’s Caribbean Sun newspaper and among thosesponsoring the program of events were Timehri Restaurant and Ban-quet Hall, Rosen Hotels, Circa Restaurant, the Law Oces of Gail See-ram, Caribbean Supercenter, Naraine’s Bakery, Laparkan Shipping,the Guyanese American Cultural Associaon of Central Florida(GACACF), Mr. & Mrs. Errol Baines, DJ Gary Osman, The HighlandAgency and Luxury Rides.

resident Obama’s new immigra-on enforcement strategy hasled to a record number of crimi-nal aliens being deported last year, butremovals of other illegal immigrants fellto the lowest rate since 2007, before theBush administraon began a crackdown.
U.S. Immigraon and Customs Enforce-ment deported 392,862 aliens in scalyear 2010, slightly less than a 1 percentincrease over 2009 but short of theagency’s goal to remove 400,000 thisyear.
Sll, the administraon said its new fo-cus on immigrants with criminal recordsis paying o, with about half of thosedeported in 2010 being convicted crimi-nals. In 2009, when 389,834 immigrantswere deported, only about one
third of them had criminal records.
“This administraon takes very, veryseriously the responsibility to secure theborders and enforce immigraon laws,”Homeland Security Secretary Janet Na-politano said in announcing the num-bers recently. The scal year endedSept. 30.
The numbers come in the middle of aheated naonal debate on immigraon.Republicans and Democrats alike havecalled on the administraon to pursuemore vigorous enforcement, both onthe border and in the interior, but Ms.Napolitano said federal ocials have touse their limited resources to try to takethe biggest public safety threats o thestreets, which means focusing on alienswith serious criminal records.
She and Mr. Obama have tried to cut amiddle ground between those who fa-vor a crackdown and the immigrantrights groups who want to see fewerdeportaons.
