Ambergris Today

Flashbacks - Beginnings of Sunbreeze Hotel and Development of South Ambergris Caye
There was a time when the entire beachfront of Ambergris Caye looked like virgin land. Such was the case with this parcel of land immediately south of the San Pedro Roman Catholic School. However one of the local pioneers in tourism, Seferino Paz Sr., decided to bring development to that area. Paz had had success with his first hotel, Sea Breeze Hotel, and was enjoying a boom with the once famous The Belizean Resort up the northern coast of Ambergris Caye. This success took Seferino Paz to commence the construction of Sun Breeze Hotel. The development has been impressive and given San Pedro luxury accommodation, relaxing patio swimming pool and pristine restaurant. Since then, the rest of the beach down south has followed suit with development. Even the small Catholic Primary School has undergone quite a metamorphosis. Look at the same spot as it exists today and be the witness of the massive development that has come to San Pedro, in part, thanks to the vision and passion of one man, the late Seferino Paz Sr.

ROAD SAFETY IN BELIZE by Belize Progressive Party-BPP
"Road Safety Management Capacity Review Draft Report November 2011 (Issued January 2012) Version 1" Section 2.1 Between 2001 and 2005, death as a result of road traffic injuries have been identified as the leading cause of death for young men between the ages of 20-49 years. A total of 182 men died within this period on the major roads and highways. Based on the above mentioned, it can be summarized that male behaviour is an important determinant for road traffic injuries, therefore putting them at greater risk. Hence, it is important to ensure that any interventions aimed at reducing road traffic injuries must encompass a gender perspective and address such issues as masculinity. Women and children are often killed or injured as passengers. Data compiled from the Ministry of Health and the police revealed that there were 386 deaths due to road traffic injuries between 2001 and 2005. From the total number killed approximately 83 were females and 49 were children.

It happened on Sunday at around 7:00 between miles 49 and 50 on the George Price Highway. Authorities could not say definitively but they suspect it was a hit and run. What's more there is strong belief that Gibson, who also manages the cycling team Benny's Megabytes, was under the influence at the time. Emanuel Pech went north today to find out more. Carol Jones- Mother of Deceased "They took everything from me, they took everything from me. I just want justice." [Sobbing] This resounding tone of grief hung over the halls of the magistrate's court in Orange Walk today as the family of Lea Crawford and Adrian Wade waited to hear the charges brought against 44 year old Perry Gibson of Belize City. According to reports 22 year old Adrian Wade and 27 year old Lea Crawford, were on their way to a wedding in Camalote when Gibson knocked them down; killing the young couple.

Two More Die On Northern, Including Moneylender "Ms. Pam"
A few hours after that double fatality in the Orange Walk District, there were two more traffic accidents the Northern Highway. Both of these accidents happened at the same curve at Mile 6, and the second accident claimed two more lives over the New Years Holiday weekend. That accident happened at around 9:00 yesterday morning, and our news team was on the scene shortly after. Daniel Ortiz reports: Daniel Ortiz reporting On Saturday just before 11:00, Ladyville police were finally able to restore traffic flow on the Northern Highway. That's after it had been at a standstill for at least 2 hours after the second accident at the same mile 6 curve. The victims of this accident were not as fortunate as the first. 80 year-old Alfredo Navarrete of Burrell Boom Village, and the well-known Southside money lender Pamela Bennett-Cumberbatch died on the scene after the terrible head-on collision between this Grey Dodge Caravan, and this white Toyota Tundra Pickup truck. Her husband, 35 year-old Calvin Cumberbatch was rushed in a critical condition to the KHMH shortly after the accident.

Mile Six Is Dangerous
About 3 hours earlier, there was another 2-car mash-up right at the same stretch of road. The two collisions are about on a few hundred yards apart. Fortunately, the victims in this accident survived, and are receiving treatment at the KHMH. The Commander of the Eastern Division Rural also discussed that accident with the press at a briefing this morning. Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster - OC, Eastern Division Rural "The first involving a blue Chevy Equinox, license plate BC - C51091 and a blue Ford Escort with license plate BC - C50646. Both were extensively damaged and we had minor injuries to individuals in this accident. We had Mr. Andre Gordon, 30 years old Belizean security of Barakat Street who was driving the Chevy Equinox and we had in the blue Ford Escort Marvin Ramirez, 27 years Belizean laborer of Tibruce Street, Belize City." Reporter "Is there any indication what might have happened? We saw pictures of the vehicle. They were extensively damaged." Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster - OC, Eastern Division Rural "The investigation is revealing that the blue Ford Escort was in the wrong lane when the head on collision occurred."

Snake-Man Snakebitten, "Very Critical"
Gilbert Usher is known as the snake man of Belize. The Lucky Strike resident is a tourist attraction around the Altun Ha Maya Ruin where he engages in all sorts of scary maneuvers with snakes - putting them in his mouth, having them slither all over his head, and freely handling super poisonous snakes such as the Tommy Goff. Well, tonight the news is that a Tommy Goff bit him, and doctors say he might not make it. Police say that it happened on Sunday morning, and he was rushed to the KHMH. This is the scene at the Boom cutoff where he was transferred to an ambulance. Doctors say he is very critical and police report that he is on life support, and may be taken off that tonight.

New Year Starts With Southside Homicide
Belize City made it through December without a murder - but then January started - and five hours in - the Southside recorded its first homicide. A 21 year old was killed not far from his home. Police say Kieron Moss was walking with two females at 5:-00 in the morning on Levi Slusher Street in the Port Loyola when two men on a motorbike pulled up and executed him. His family is asking why. I found out more:.. Courtney Weatherburne reporting A youth leader and a role model: That's what 21 year old Kieron Moss's friends and family describe him as. They say, Moss inspired the other kids with his charisma and his free spirit. He had a long life ahead of him but instead of embracing a new beginning in 2016. He was gasping for breath in the gravel after he was shot several times. He died right here on New Years Day. Voice of: Brother "Everybody was here gathering, deciding what was going to be the plan for the night and then I left before them and then everybody was supposed to meet up afterwards, but unfortunately, things didn't went as plan and some people came home, but Keiron didn't come he went to part with some friends and then everybody brought in the new year's regularly and then we heard the news later in the morning that he got shot."

Her Mother Disappeared From Mental Health Facility, And No One Said Anything
The Christmas holidays are officially over - and all of us that could, spent it with our family. And that's what Siera Hodgson had hoped to do. She's a 20 year old who was raised in difficult circumstances. For the first ten years of her life, she and her mother were basically locked up by her father right here in Belize City. When social services intervened, 10-year-old Siera didn't even know what the days of the week were. Her mother, Mary was sent to the Palm Center, which is the Ministry of Health's Acute Psychiatric Care Clinic, what used to be called "Rockview." Siera was luckier - she got adopted by Shaunna Hodgson, a woman from Scotland who first put her into private school in Belize. At 14, Siera went with her new mother to live in Scotland - where she has caught up - and is doing well in her second year of college.

Guyanese Rice Rejected
For the past 2 weeks, importer Jack Charles and his advisors have been waiting patiently for their opportunity to get before a Supreme Court Judge. Their position is that Customs and the Belize Agricultural Health Authority overstepped their mandate when they refused to give him a permit import Guyanese Rice. His attempt to get cheap rice unto store shelves in Belize has sparked a very serious debate about the price of this important staple. But today, he got a very swift and stern slap-down from Justice Sonya Young. The judge simply won't entertain his case. The hearing was done in chambers, and in the absence of the press. It was expected to be a hotly contested legal battle, but the attorneys exited about 20 minutes after the hearing started. They told us that Justice Young was very clear to Charles that he is trying to use the court to legitimize his illegal action when he imported the rice into Belize without a permit.

93 Year Old Patrick Grant Back At Home, Recovering
93 year old beating victim Patrick Grant was discharged from the hospital on Saturday. The senior citizen was beaten up on December 29th at his home on Fern Lane, in Belize City. While some say the hospital kind of rushed him out of the bed, tonight he is at home in his final stages of recovery. Most interestingly, even after the bloody beat down, old man Grant remained reluctant to move in with his daughter and son in law. Instead, he withdrew himself to the familiar comforts of his little house on Fern Lane. In an interview today with 7News this evening, Grant updated us on his recovery and gave us an insight into the moment the home invasion occurred. Patrick Grant, beat down victim "I am recovering. Feeling okay." Reporter "Is there anything in particular that hurts most of all?" Patrick Grant, beat down victim "Yes, but it doesn't hurt anymore. It sad you know to see people just getting along trying to do your best, mind your own business, looks at everybody as your friend. But there are some mean guys out there."

Easy Glen, Another Stellar Performance In Court
Forty-four year old Goldbourne Adolphus, the man called "Easy Glen", put on another award winning performance in court today, when he broke down in tears before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser after she threatened to remand him to prison. Adolphus was charged with theft, escape, wounding and using threatening words. The charge stems from a domestic dispute on New Year's eve where Adolphus allegedly slapped his ex common law, beat her with a machete and took her money. When he was detained, Adolphus said he was sick and asked police to rush him to the hospital. But while Adolphus was in the observation room in the Accident and Emergency section of the hospital he asked to use the bathroom. And that was all he needed…shortly after, a security guard at the hospital alerted the police that Adolphus had escaped through the bathroom window. When the police looked they saw Adolphus running up St. Thomas Street. He flagged down a car which sped away.

A New Year With New Babies
On tonight's newscast, we've shown you the 4 persons who died over the New Years weekend. But, with the start of a new year, it should be celebrated with renewal, and so, we got a chance to meet the first babies born at the KHMH for 2016. The usual corporate citizens continued their tradition of providing their moms with a gift for those special children born on or near January 1. Here's what the mothers told us about the donations on Saturday: We've since found out that the very first baby born in Belize for 2016 is actually a baby born to an Orange Walk Family. That Baby, Nathan, was born at 1:23 a.m. on January 1 at Correa's Clinic.

Gunmen Robbed Restaurant Right Beside Police Station
Ladyville Police are reporting that on New Years Day armed robbers barged into a Chinese Restaurant right across the street from their station, and held up the owners. That's some kind of "ganas" to commit a crime right within walking distance of a large number of police officers, but that's what happened. The Commander of the Eastern Division Rural Police told the press that they are looking into this aggravated burglary: Sr. Supt. Edward Broaster - OC, Eastern Division Rural "1st January, we had a report of a aggravated burglary which occurred a block away from the police station at Amy's Restaurant. This report was made by a business woman of Poinsettia Street where two individuals accosted her and her husband in the said restaurant and rob them of $7,000 worth of cash and other items. We have a prime suspect that we are looking for and this may have been a individual who had worked for them in the past."

New Year's Eve may be the big party night - but for sports fans and race watchers the real hype of new year's is on the day itself, January First - the date for the KREM New Year's Day Cycling Classic - which is the first big race on the annual cycling calendar. In it's 26th running, this 2016 edition was different: no foreign riders were allowed on local teams, which left the field wide open for Belizean cyclists. It also made for an exciting race out there on the road - our cameraman Codie Norales was with them on the back of a motorbike - and we put together this report:..

Jawmeighn Jr Won Again
And while that was the finish for the elite males, the junior race was much closer: it had a dramatic sprint - we have the call from Malcolm Hyde and Press Cadogan on KREM TV:... Winner Ernest Bradley, is the son of Ernest Jawmeighan Meighan - and wasn't inclined to brag about his victory. Alicia Thompson won the women's race - also in a sprint to edge out Kaya Cattouse.

Caye Caulker Chronicles

A Tsunami Of Fun
Back home I packed a bag for a day of adventure, culture and history all rolled into one. Heather Martin from Tsunami Adventures had booked my friend and I on an all day trip to go visit the Mayan ruins of Altun Ha then followed by Cave Tubing in the afternoon. The 7am water taxi awaited and we took the quiet stroll down Front Street to catch our ride. It was a smooth crossing thankfully and we made good time. Once we arrived in Belize City, Major Tom Greenwood was waiting for all the people that had booked a tour to the ruins and beyond. We were shown to our minibus and settled in to our seats awaiting our adventure. Thank goodness for air-conditioning is all I can say. Even though it was early, the sun was beating down on the minibus and turning it into an oven. It was less than an hour drive to the ruins of Altun Ha and Major Tom was an excellent host and his narratives on the journey there were full of facts with a little humor thrown in for good measure. As we all disembarked from the minibus, we were all encouraged to put on some insect repellent and take water with us which were provided by the company. The site of Altun Ha isn’t one of the largest Mayan ruins you will see, but it is steeped with history and its location made it a major site in its heyday. Major Tom described every structure in detail and its significance within the city. As with many Mayan cities, the buildings have an astrological alignment with most facing North South or East West.

John Holm, 72, Dies; Opened Linguistics to Creole and Pidgin Tongues
John Holm, a linguist who helped bring the study of creole and pidgin languages into the scholarly mainstream, died on Dec. 28 in Azeitão, Portugal. He was 72. The cause was prostate cancer, his husband, Michael Pye, said. While hitchhiking through Mexico and Central America as a teenager, Mr. Holm heard black Nicaraguans along the Caribbean coast speaking a non-Spanish language that seemed oddly familiar. They called it “pirate English,” a reference to its probable origin as a pidgin spoken on pirate and British Navy ships. Although Mr. Holm could barely understand what he was hearing, it planted the seed for what would become his life’s work: the study of creole and pidgin languages spoken by millions of people around the world, especially the English-derived creoles of the Caribbean.

Victoria House Belize: A Top Accommodation Option on Ambergris Caye
The Central American country of Belize, and in particular, its northern cayes are popular destinations for tourists. Caye Caulker is known for being the more budget/backpacker option, while those looking for more amenities and upscale accommodations are often drawn to the neighboring Ambergris Caye. In our opinion, there is only one resort to consider when coming to Ambergris, and that's Victoria House. Most of the resorts on this caye are set outside of the main town of San Pedro, and this resort is no exception. Although Victoria House is set two miles outside of town, you'll have no problems with transportation to the resort. The staff will be there waiting for you in a golf cart! If for some reason no one is there to collect you, hop in one of the many taxis lining the street and the resort will pay the fare when you arrive. A great perk of staying here is that they have free bicycles for use by guests for getting to and from San Pedro, or for simply exploring the area on your own steam. If you have a big group of people, or aren't up for the exercise, you can use one of the resort’s golf carts. They rent them hourly or daily. With your own wheels, you're never far from restaurants, sights and shops while staying here.

Earth's Top Ten Weather/Climate Events of 2015
The final numbers are not in yet, but 2015 is virtually certain to beat 2014's record as the planet's warmest year since record keeping began in 1880. Nine of the first eleven months of 2015 set new all-time monthly records for global heat in the NOAA database, and the two most recent months that have been catalogued--October and November 2015--had by far the warmest departures from average of any months on record. The new record was caused by the long-term warming of the planet due to human-caused emissions of heat-trapping gases like carbon dioxide, combined with a extra bump in temperature due to the strongest El Niño event ever recorded in the Eastern Pacific. Record warm ocean temperatures in the tropics in 2015 led to a global coral bleaching event, which is expected to cause a loss of 10 - 20% of all coral worldwide. The lingering warmth from El Niño makes 2016 a good bet to exceed even 2015's warmth.

When Did the Caste War End? Part 1 — The Power of General Bravo
The Caste War of Yucatán officially ended, after fifty-four years of horror, when a Mexican army occupied the Maya capital on May 4, 1901. But the deep-rooted and lingering war really had no definitive final battle, no conclusive peace treaty. No Waterloo, no Appomattox. The end came several times. Or maybe not. The interethnic conflict began in 1847, raged ferociously for a decade or so, then settled into guerrilla clashes and murderous raids. The cost was about a quarter of a million lives and hundreds of towns destroyed. The Yucatán Peninsula lost a third to half of its population, killed or forced to flee from the violence. The rebelling Maya, defending their culture against subjugation and the advances of capitalist agriculture, established and maintained an independent nation, roughly today’s state of Quintana Roo, with their capital at Chan Santa Cruz.

The 2016 Annual Global Retirement Index—Results by Category
Retiring abroad is easier and more affordable than ever before. These days it really is possible to spend your days relaxing beneath palm fronds on a Caribbean beach, enjoying farm-fresh produce in a mountain haven with year-round spring weather, or wandering the storied streets of a historic and cultured European city…or all of the above. But with so many choices available, finding the right one can seem daunting.This year, International Living scored each country across 10 categories used to compile our most comprehensive Index yet. Here’s a breakdown of the big hitters in each category. Belize, with its English-speaking population and established expat communities also makes it easy for new arrivals to fit in. Lynn Ann Snellman and Tony DiPiazza, from Michigan, found this out when they moved to Placencia. “We socialize with both expats and native Belizeans. We have many more acquaintances than we did in the States. In Belize it is easy for neighbors to become friends. “In Belize, we don’t hesitate to stop by strangers’ homes to find out more about a feature or plant we admire—and we are typically warmly welcomed.”
