I can add a true story about San Pedro's first policeman, Smitty. I flew him in my airplane to the States for what was supposed to be a "vacation" for him. To my best knowledge, he was never seen in Belize again. I will not comment on illegal immigration in the US.

Also, too long of a story to try and tell on the message board, but for those of you on the island, ask Eddie Halliday to tell you the story of Jerry McDermott and the "briefcase".

Marie Haylock was a wonderful lady whio lived a very interesting life. Her and husband Bradley were two of my first new friends when I lived in Belmopan in the early 90's.

Dave: I should get credit for Marie. On page 3 of this thread, although I could not remember her last name...I did refer to her as the Black Orchid. Well...to be fair, I'll share credit with you. Bill

Sorry for being redundant Bill, I never knew Marie as "Maria The Black Orchid".
