Well, this edition is dated "Tuesday, 13 November 2011" Huh? Different time zone out in Cayo?

Whatever the date, this edition misses the biggest story in months, the brutal murder in a home invasion of Dr. Larry Johnson. Deadline or not, it should have been covered, at least in the digital edition.

The rest of this edition is primarily a mug sheet, a litany of crimes in Cayo. In that respect the Star is starting to become like Amandala and the other port city papers, a few news items wrapped around murders and shootings. Sad that this is the main focus of news reporting in Belize today.

So as an old newspaper guy myself, I'd have to give this edition a C- at best.
