BSI/ASR Signs Agreement With Groups Of Farmers
The subject of the current sugar crisis has been dominating the media for the past weeks. But amidst all of it BSI/ASR has been quiet even when there has been called out many times and the publicity they have been receiving is nothing positive. Tonight though, the silence ended as the company issued an announcement. But the company did not come out on the defense, on the contrary they are informing the nation that following petitions made already by groups of farmers representing more than 400,000 tons of sugar cane to the SICB to be recognised and exercise their Constitutional right to enter into separate agreements with BSI to deliver cane for the 2015 crop, the process for signing agreements between BSI and these groups of farmers has now commenced.
GOB Expected To Amend Sugar Act On Monday At Parliament
But the hurling of stones at GOB does not stop there as Prime Minister Dean Barrow is also being attacked for now wanting to amend the Sugar Act which was found unconstitutional back in 2010. Or was it only two clauses of the sugar act that were found unconstitutional? This is a question that is yet to be answered rightfully since the decision of the court is being interpreted in various manners even by attorneys. The bottom line is Prime Minister Barrow announced that with the ruling of 2010 there comes freedom of association making way for the Corozal Sugar Cane Producers and the United Cane Farmers Association. And that is where the problem lies because while these associations say they are now fully certified, the mixed feeling is this is not legal since GOB is yet to amend the sugar act as was ordered to do back in 2010. And then there are those who interpret the ruling in a different manner and are of the feeling that the Sugar Act which recognizes the BSCFA as the only association, is still binding since there was no decision ever handed down in that case and there was no Supreme Court Order, instead there was a consent order. But Elrington says it is the same bag of rice.
Foul Play Ruled Out In Death Of Fisherman
Yesterday we reported on the unfortunate death of 29 year old Henry Noh, a fisherman from the Village of Pathakan in the Corozal District who met his death while on a fishing trip with nine of his friends.
When we left you yesterday the Corozal Police Department was investigating if foul play was involved in Noh’s death.Today we can tell you that foul play has been ruled out after a post mortem examination conducted in the presence of police officers by Dr. Loyden Ken and Dr. Roque Blanco certified the cause of death to be Asphyxia due to Inhalation of Fluids consistent with drowning.
Did Cane Farmers Receive A Good Deal In Commercial Agreement?
But when it comes to the negotiation of the Commercial Agreement did cane farmers really have a chance at getting what they were fighting for? You can come up with your own concept after hearing the response of Minister Elrington.
“The position of the cane-farmers historically has never been strong. You have a perishable crop. The crop cannot stay in the ground for more than a few weeks otherwise it starts to rot. So you don’t have much scope to negotiate. You don’t have a very strong negotiating position. People have mortgages to pay. People have loans. So you have got to take all of that into consideration. If I don’t agree with the proposal that you are putting, what next? Do I have a fallback plan? The farmers unfortunately don’t. That is not unusual in this kind of industry. And I will say to you…they should have learned from what occurred in the citrus industry. This is a replay of what recently took place in the citrus industry.”
Mayor Bernard Elected As Chairman Of OWTHS
There is a newly elected Chairman foreseeing the functions and roles of the Orange Walk Technical High School Board and it is no other than Mayor Kevin Bernard. When we caught up with the Mayor today on his campaign trail, he stated that he plans to continue to look after the best interest of the students and faculty of the school.
“The Board is there to guide and to set policies and look at the performance of the school and find way how to further improve the institution and what happened yesterday was of course we had the election, we had to elect the executive of the Board and so both myself and Mr. Emir Cruz were candidates and I was able to secure majority votes after two voting because at the first one we had a deadlock and then the second voting I was able to gain the majority votes and so it is my privilege to serve as Chairman of the Orange Walk Technical High School Board...
Four Men Charged For Huge Heroin Bust
Yesterday we told you about 4 Belizeans arrested and charged for what is said to be the biggest Heroin Bust in Belize’s history. As we reported, the Anti-Drug Unit made the bust at the entrance of Corozal town last night when they intercepted a vehicle carrying more than 40 pounds of the lethal drug. The drugs were found in three bags on the back seat of a white Chevrolet Tahoe with Belize City plates. They added up to 15 parcels of Heroin along with one small piece. The total weight is 19.621 Kilograms or equivalent to 43 pounds and is estimated to have a street value in the vicinity of 10 million dollars.
GOB Did All They Could In Commercial Agreement Negotiation, Says Hulse
On Tuesday the People’s United Party held a Press Conference in which they spoke vastly about the current Sugar crisis. Of course the opposition took the opportunity to lay blame squarely on GOB for not intervening in the negotiation of the commercial agreement between BSI/ASR and BSCFA sooner. For the P.U.P cane farmers have no other option but to now sign the agreement with BSI/ASR. So, basically it is being shoved down their throats since the leader of the nation has come out in favor of the powerful ASR. In the press conference Leader of the Opposition, Honorable Francis Fonseca stated that GOB should have stood beside cane farmers instead of with the international investor.
And today Attorney-General Wilfred Elrington responded to Fonseca’s comments by stating that a responsible leader does not hold the foreign investor hostage.
Government Is Not To Blame For Current Sugar Industry Crisis Says Hulse
The Government of the day has been widely criticized and even accused of being in bed with BSI/ASR after Prime Minister Dean Barrow announced that there will be no crop if a commercial agreement is not signed between the miller and the producer during a press conference held last week.
Internationally and locally the sentiments vary when it comes to the recent sugar crisis and if we talk about the opinions on the social media, well, GOB is being chastised for basically forcing caneros to sign the agreement with the manufacturer.
Also, GOB is accused of not playing its role when it comes to influencing the start of crop via the Sugar Industry Control Board. The bottom line is that accusations are being placed squarely at the door of GOB for aligning with BSI/ASR thus helping the company defeat cane farmers who are on the verge of signing the commercial agreement two weeks after they voted against it.
Monday Night Drug Bust
The Anti Drug Unit along with Corozal Police made a huge drug bust on Monday night. Fifteen parcels of heroin were confiscated and four men were arrested after authorities intercepted a white Chevrolet Tahoe near the entrance of Corozal Town. Inside the car were 32 year old Jose Antonio Lara, a Tour guide of Julio Street in San Pedro Town, 30 year old Lenon Leonardo Tillett, a contractor for BEL of Ebony Street Belize City, 42 year old Gerardo Beraldo Allen, a tour guide of Back Street in Caye Caulker Village and 35 year old Heirder Martin Perez, an administrative assistant for Hol Chan Marine Reserve of Escalante Subdivision San Pedro Town. Within, Perez had a licensed 9 mm pistol Springfield Brand loaded with 13 live rounds of Aguila brand ammunition.
Hon. Wilfred Elrington Updates Dr. Errol Elrington Accusations
In latter July 2014, we reported that Dr. Errol Elrington, the brother of Minister of Foreign Affairs and Attorney General, Wilfred Elrington and Senior Counsel Hubert Elrington is wanted in the United States of America by the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. The information came off the US Inspector General’s website adding that there is a warrant for the arrest of Dr. Elrington in relation to racketeering, Medicaid fraud and health care fraud. The warrant, according to the site, is a result of US investigators, who believe that Elrington falsely billed Medicare and Medicaid more than $400,000 US dollars, for services that he never performed. The website reported that Elrington had employed an unlicensed physician and after being interrogated by Federal and State agents fled the United States for Belize. Today, Love News asked Wilfred Elrington to update us on the situation with his brother and the accusations.
Man Detained For Rape And Burglary Seeks DNA Results
At the end of January 2014, forty-three-year-old Ana Foster, was raped and murdered in Sittee River in Southern Village. A year later no one has been charged for her gruesome murder. But during the investigation, Dale Reynaud was detained and charged for burglary. His DNA samples were obtained but to this date, the results of those samples have not received, at least to our knowledge. Today, Reynaud told our Correspondent, Harry Arzu, that he wants the results of the samples taken because he is tired of the victimization he has been receiving after being falsely accused.
“This month will make it a year now since Anna Foster, a resident of Sittee River village in the Stann Creek district was reportedly rapped and brutally murdered. Her body was late found in a citrus orchard on the Sittee River village road. When the residents learned of Foster’s death the village went into a state of shock and promptly organized community meetings in an effort to resolve criminal activities that were going on in the village and more importantly to seek justice for the murder of Anna Foster and others. A number of suspects were detained by police including 48 year old Dale Renad who spoke with Love News.”
Belize City Shooting; Fisherman Fatally Wounded
A shooting that occurred just after seven o’clock last night claimed the life of 29-year-old Pedro Aldana Ayuso, a Belizean Fisherman of Oleander Street in Belize City. According to his spouse, Ayuso had just left home when she received a call stating that he was being rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. Ayuso was reportedly in a boat returning home and when he neared the Belcan Bridge, another skiff approached him from behind and shots were fired at him, fatally wounding him in the abdomen. Superintendent Hilberto Romero briefed the media.
SUPERINTENDENT HILBERTO ROMERO
“On Tuesday the 13th day of January 2015 police visited an area near the Belcan bridge where inside a skill a male person was observed motionless, he was taken to the KHMH where he was pronounced dead thereafter. He was identified as Pedro Ayuso, 29 years of an Oleander Street address. He had two gunshot wounds to the abdomen and one to the hand. We have not established a motive at this time, this shooting happened in the river he was in a vessel. The only information we have is that another vessel was heard speeding off after the shooting. He is not known to the police and we are doing our investigation at this time and following up on some leads that we have. We have no such connection and linkage to any of the murders that occurred recently.”
Business or Politics in The Sugar Industry?
We noted earlier in our newscast that there was a press conference held by the People’s United Party on Monday, January 12 where the main focus was the sugar industry. The Leader of the Opposition opened the conference notably accusing the Prime Minister, Hon. Dean Barrow, of abandoning the farmers and going into negotiations to get a deal and signing an agreement.
LEADER OF OPPOSITION, HON. FRANCIS FONSECA
“The crisis in the sugar industry for us is not an issue which we seek to exploit for any political advantage. All parties have a critical role to play and must be valued and respected. Our party condemns in the strongest possible terms the decision by Prime Minister Barrow and his UDP government to destroy this long established partnership in the industry. Barrow and the UDP have abandoned the caneros and the Belizean people’s interest and have decidedly sided with the multinational ASR. When Mr. Barrow and the UDP under political pressure finally engaged in this crisis all they were interested in was getting a deal, signing an agreement. It didn’t matter how fair or unfair that deal was, that agreement was. Mr. Barrow as usual just wanted to look good. Well Barrow has now forced that deal, forced that agreement he has got his deal and the farmers and all Belizeans now know that the agreement is one sided and unfair to the farmers of Belize. It is for this one sided unfair deal that Barrow and the UDP even as we meet today are actively working to break up and destroy the 55 year old institution that is the BSCFA.”
Fair-trade Funds; Senator Speaks on Cane Farmer’s Membership Decision
One of the major concerns among some of the directors of the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association is the consequence, if any, that the association will face after the decision was made to draw down four million dollars from the funds given by Fair-trade International. In the recent PUP Press Conference, Opposition Leader threw out the suggestion for the Government to help the farmers with the Petro Caribe funds.
LEADER OF OPPOSITION, HON. FRANCIS FONSECA
“The boast about Petro Caribe money what better use of Petro Caribe money than to help the cane farmers. Commandant Chaves would certainly approve of that so certainly I think that is something that should be explored. The government can and should step forward and examine that issue and see if in fact Petro Caribe monies can be made available to the farmers for that purpose.”
Senator of Government Business, Godwin Hulse responded to that suggestion saying that the decision to use Fair-trade funds was a decision made by cane farmer’s membership.
Farmers in Disunity; Will Changes be made?
When Audrey Matura- Shepherd began making appearances in the media regarding the sugar industry and the cane farmers, the matter regarding an order handed down in 2010 by Justice Legall on the unconstitutionality of parts of the Sugar Act took centre stage, that even the Prime Minister, Dean Barrow had commented on why the amendments ordered were not carried through. Now that it seems as though the dust is settling, it leaves the question as to whether or not the changes will be made. We asked Senator Godwin Hulse to comment.
SENATOR GODWIN HULSE
“The BSCFA is not unconstitutional, it is a properly constituted body and a legal one. It was the act that said ‘you have to be a member of that and only that body can do business’ basically and that did not confirm with the constitution’s provision of the freedom of association.
Senator Clarifies Joint Meeting With Pm and BSCFA
On December 12, 2014, the discussions and negotiations on the opening of the sugar crop and the signing of a Sugar Commercial Agreement seemed to have improved significantly when the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister emerged from a joint meeting with the Belize Sugar Cane Farmers Association and BSI/ASR. Shortly after coming out of that meeting, it was announced that both parties had come to an agreement and that they will be signing off on it in the coming days, but that never happened and now, thirty three days later, the crop is still yet to start and the “no” agreement has been signed, despite indications from some farmers that they will be signing. Today, Love News spoke with Godwin Hulse, Senator of Government Business, who clarified for us, just what occurred following that meeting with the Prime Minister.
SENATOR OF GOVERNMENT BUSINESS, GODWIN HULSE
”As I understand it there were a few directors to be exact Mr. Fred Ortega who was not in full agreement with the agreement but the general assembly and the directors who manage the association were in agreement and so they were prepared to sign.
Classroom Donated to South Side Primary School
St. John’s Primary School in Belize City has been and will soon be able to better accommodate their standard one students following the donation of an additional building on their compound on Amara Avenue in Belize City. Due to the recent rains, the completion of the building has been delayed but a ceremonial handing over was done this morning at the school. The school building was constructed with monies from a fund through the cooperation of the President of the Bridgewater State University, Dr. Dana Mohler-Faria. Love News spoke with Dr Mohler-Faria who explained how the undertaking happened.
“The building is comes from a fund which I established in my parent’s name and so from that fund we take the proceeds and the plan is to do projects every year. This is going to be the very first project so the money to support this comes from the fund that we have established in my parents name. It is the John and Francis Ferrier Fund for social justice. The fund is established not just for Belize but to support projects that Bridge Water is doing around the world so the very first one was done here in Belize. The contribution I believe that was made from the fund was about $35,000 USD.”

From St. Petersburg to Bass Pro Shops: Florida is Filled with Wonderful Places
Florida, like my home state of New Jersey, has a bit of a public relations issue…it gets a bum rap. Sure there are plenty of retirees playing shuffle board (we have seen more than a few courts since our arrival in the Sunshine state – nicknamed the “Gunshine” state), tourists, and rabid football fans but there are tons of interesting spots to check out and fascinating & delicious foods to eat.
10 ways to get (even more) excited about your Placencia, Belize vacation!
One of my favorite things over the last couple months, has been getting emails from future guests, with fun questions about how to improve their trip, and general excitement (right now, all the Northern climates are thrilled to escape the polar vortex). I know I am not alone in this, but when I travel, I become obsessed with the place I am going and I read blogs, forums, and look at images of where I am going, to daydream about it. To me this is part of the excitement of the trip!
So, specific to Placencia, Belize...here are some ideas for those of you heading down!
No sea grass sea. Don't be discouraged if you come down and there is sea grass, it may be gone tomorrow!

One Day in Belize: Cave Tubing on a Budget
If you are planning a day in Belize—maybe on a cruise stop—you probably have already figured out that the country’s top day trips are zip-lining through the jungle and cave tubing through spring fed, underground rivers.
When we watch the Travel Channel we see people have a blast doing both of them. Okay, the Travel Channel makes practically everything look like fun—but who cares, when we took our first Caribbean cruise together in 2010 we were pretty psyched when we saw the excursions in our cruise catalog.
Only problem: Both were priced out of our budget.
What to do? What to do?
Armed with a short list of possibilities, my search finally brought me to Vitalino Reyes’ family-owned business, Vital Nature and Mayan Tours.
Our email confirmation had told us to walk through the cruise terminal at the port and look for a representative holding a cavetubing.bz sign. (Non-cruise line vendors have to stay outside the terminal itself.)
We wound between the crowds gathering in the terminal and hesitantly exited on the other side. Aha! Sure enough,there was the sign, and iti was held by Vitalino himself, the owner of the company. He smiled and thanked us for having decided to book with them, then dashed my hopes that he’d be our escort for the day when he turned and introduced us to our guide, who escorted our group to a clean and comfy passenger van.
Our destination was Nohoch Che’en Caves Branch Archaeological Reserve, an archaeological park 35 miles out of town but we got an extra bonus as we drove out of the city. Our tour guide and driver offered to give us a brief tour of Belize City. Well, that was a nice idea and we all jumped at it, especially since we wouldn’t have time to see the capital city on our own.
What Is The Madden Julian Oscillation (MJO) & How Does It Affect Tropical Cyclone Development
I have been asked to explain what the Madden Julian Oscillation is; especially since I refer to it so often during the Hurricane season. So, here is an explanation of the MJO and how it impacts the hurricane season:
The Madden Julian Oscillation is the biggest contributor to the variability we see in the tropical atmosphere (between sunshine and calm weather and frequent showers and thunderstorms with gusty winds) throughout the year. It is basically a link between the atmospheric circulation and tropical thunderstorm activity and travels from west to east year-round at a forward speed of between 9 and 18 mph. The overall circulation pattern that is the Madden Julian Oscillation shows itself in the form of higher than average rainfall and thunderstorm activity.
The MJO cycle between suppressed rainfall and higher than average rainfall usually lasts between 30 and 60 days and travels from west to east across the entire tropical region of the Globe. Think of it as an area of concentrated energy and upward motion that is surrounded by sinking air.
How Belize Had its Biggest Year Ever in 2014
Belize’s 2014 tourist arrivals reached another milestone this week in what has emerged as the most successful year in its tourism industry’s history. Belize hosted 321,220 land-based, overnight visitors in 2014, according to Belize Tourism Board (BTB) statistics issued Tuesday.
The 2014 overnight visitor total represents the first year in which Belize has reached 300,000 land-based visitors. The 2014 overnight arrivals total also represents a 9.2 percent increase over Belize’s previous record of 294,177 land-based travelers in 2013.
Belize also posted an all-time record in combined overnight and cruise-ship arrivals in 2014, hosting 1,289,351combined travelers. BTB officials announced in December the country had reached one million combined land-based and cruise-ship visitors two months earlier than the agency had earlier forecast.
Prof Bain said he was warned about giving evidence in Belize case
Under cross-examination from Queen's Counsel Hugh Small, Professor Brendan Bain testified that prior to him giving evidence in a Belize court, he had met with two doctors who warned him of the consequences of participating in the case.
Professor Bain said he met with the doctors, John Walters and Ian McKnight, while in Guyana in May 2012. Bain said he told them he would consider what they had said.
He said he again met with McKnight after he returned to Jamaica.
"I got the impression that he, McKnight, was trying to negotiate me out of participating in the (case)," Bain testified.
Bain says rights group did not write to him about expert evidence
PROFESSOR Brendan Bain testified yesterday that he was warned by two colleague doctors, prior to him giving evidence in a Belize court, of the consequences of participating in the case that had challenged the constitutionality of the buggery law there.
Bain, who gave the evidence under cross-examination from Queen's Counsel Hugh Small, testified about the "pressures" he faced from rights groups and his colleagues after he gave evidence in 2012 and said that University of the West Indies (UWI) Vice-Chancellor Nigel Harris had tried to pacify the fallout.
Bain said, too, that Harris had asked him to reach out to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community, and was asked to inform them that he did not mean to hurt them when he gave evidence.
Bain testified that one of Harris' concerns was that funding could be stopped for the Caribbean HIV/AIDS Regional Training Network (CHART) programme if the tension continued.
Bain testified, however, that he did not reach out to the community because he had called a representative of the Health Resources and Services Administration, an arm of the US Department of Health and Human Services that funded CHART, and was satisfied that funding of the programme would continue.
Cultural guardian confronts the looters
Donna Yates is tackling the illicit trade in antiquities, and although it can be dangerous, the archaeologist says it’s a world away from Lara Croft. “We can’t do anything. These people have killed before and will kill again.”
This was the warning from Guatemalan wildlife poachers when they told Donna Yates, a 20-year-old student archaeologist from Boston University on only her second dig, that a nearby Mayan ruin was being looted.
Their fears were well founded: the vandals who targeted the site, called Cancuén, went on to kill a man who had spoken to an archaeologist and they also beat a woman to the brink of death. Their haul was an altar, which they buried temporarily in a village near the border in the hope of smuggling it into Belize.
The raid was the trigger for a major operation involving the Guatemalan secret service and the US authorities, which eventually led to the altar’s recovery.

Quintana Roo Will Change to Eastern Time
At 2am on Sunday, 1 February 2015, Quintana Roo, México, will jump to 3am, making Q. Roo almost exactly the same as Eastern Time in the USA. This is being done mostly for the convenience of tourists, especially cruise ship passengers. The reason it is not EXACTLY the same is that Daylight Savings Time in Q. Roo will begin the first Sunday in April, while in the USA it begins the second Sunday in March. Thanks to The Chetumal Connection for this tip.
