A Pause (Running Part III):
In her mind, Lisa felt the slight twinges of a conscience, but the food that was set before her smelled delicious, and had been made for her and her children. She wished this was her life every day. A woman could get used to this. Looking around at her children, she knew that it was for them, but for just one brief moment she decided it was also just for her. Her host sat across from her, also eating the food he had quickly prepared for the family that had chanced upon him in the night. He had an inscrutable face, especially as he attacked the food, but as if sensing her looking at him, he smiled that small smile again.

2nd Black Tiger Prawn found in Belizean waters
The management of Hol Chan Marine Reserve is reporting that a Black Tiger Prawn originally from Africa, Australia and Southeast Asia was fished outside of the Hol Chan Marine Reserve off Ambergris Caye. This is the second prawn that has been found in Belizean waters since May. The first was fished off Toledo’s coast sometime in May. The species of shrimp is considered to be invasive and there is concern about the effects it can have on the environment and shrimp farms in Belize. Speaking to The San Pedro Sun Miguel Alamilla, Marine Biologist and Manager of Hol Chan Marine Reserve shared his concerns relating to the prawn now being found in Belizean waters. “This species is huge in aquaculture, and in 1988, it was released from a research facility in North Carolina and it has been coming downstream since. In 1990 it was reported in South Florida, then the Caribbean and now Belize. It is an invasive species because it is not endemic to this region. Any rare species found in our water is cause for concern. We don’t really know the level of ecological impacts of the prawn to the marine environment. From previous studies and reports, we know that this species is a very aggressive feeder and it preys on many small shrimp and other species that live in our seas. It is also a carrier for 16 different known viruses that can negatively impact native shrimp and even wipe them out. So it is enough reason to be concerned,” outlined Alamilla. According to Hol Chan Marine Reserve, there was a similar finding in the Toledo District and reports from the Fishery Officer are that a prawn was seen for sale at the fish market in Punta Gorda Town.
Graduation for Participants of Squad Drill Course
On Friday, June 7, 2013, Graduation Ceremonies were held for close to Twenty Police Officers who completed a two-week long Squad Drill Course conducted at the Police Training Academy in Belmopan. The course was for non-commissioned officers, corporals and sergeants, attached to the various formations and sub-formations around the Country. Its purpose was to have the participating officers re-sharpen their drill-skills; something which keynote speaker at the Ceremony, Acting Director of Training Senior Superintendent, Chester Williams, reminded them is an integral part of their discipline as members of one of the Nation’s leading security forces. Also present for the graduation ceremony was Deputy Commissioner of Police, Elodio Aragon, who along with Senior Superintendent Williams, presented certificates to all the officers that completed the course. Master of Ceremonies was Commandant of the National Police Training Academy, Superintendent Linden Flowers. Other senior officers present for the ceremony included Director of the National Crimes Investigation Branch, Assistant Commissioner of Police, Russell Blackett and Deputy Commandant of the Police Training Academy, A. Richard Rosado. The training was conducted under the direct command of veteran Drill-Instructor at the National Police Training Academy, Inspector Daniel Cacho, who was presented with a Plaque of Appreciation.
One minor injured in shooting
San Pedro Police are investigating a shooting incident that occurred around 4:30PM on June 10th. The incident took place on Sandpiper Street in the San Juan Area of San Pedro Town. The victim is a minor, thus his name cannot be released at this time.
According to multiple eyewitnesses, they saw a man dressed in green pants and shirt and wearing a camouflage cap chasing another male person. Suddenly they heard two gunshots and saw a man fall to the ground. According to several students who were coming out from school at the time of the shooting, the man ran onto Cormorant Street with a gun in his hand and made good his escape. “We saw two men running. We saw one of them with a gun and he fired two shots. We jumped over a fence on the side of the road because we were afraid to get shot,” said one of two students that saw the shooting as it unfolded.

It’s Mosquito Season in Belize!
It’s official that the rainy season is upon us and along with it comes showers of mosquitoes too! These annoying tiny blood suckers do not discriminate anyone as they bite anyone and everyone! Mosquitoes are everywhere! So how’s the situation here on the island? Well we contacted the Health Inspector Ms. Lisa Tillett who explained to use the situation here on the island is and what measures are being taken.
Ms. Tillett explained that during the dry season the mosquito lay eggs on the sand and when the first rains of the season fall the soil absorbs the water and the eggs hatch; that is when we have an outburst of nuisance mosquitoes. She also stated that the normal schedule is to spray three times a day every seven days but they are currently conducting sprays every five days.
Long Before the Compactor Trucks
San Pedro’s Garbage Collection has always taken a priority in the list of duties of the Village Councils and Town Councils of our community. At first the garbage was deposited on the left side of the narrow streets leading from the back street towards the lagoon. When the heap was too high, volunteers would set it on fire and thereafter level it to the ground using some of it as land refill.
At one point Village Council Chairman Fido Nuñez decided to modernize and make easier the beach collection of the seaweeds or sea grass. For this they bought as horse and a cart. Did it work? Only temporarily because try as hard as he could, Mr. Priciliano Gomez, who was hired to man the horse and cart, could not get the horse to move forward. The few times that they did get to the dump site, the horse had to be pulled instead of driven.

Xunantunich and the Hand Cranked Ferry
Here's a fan video of Xunantunich and the 'world famous' hand cranked ferry. There's some narration, along with well placed stills from the site.
"Xunantunich Ruins are just north of San Ignacio on the northern highway as you approach Guatemala. a very beautiful set of ruins but the day was very hot, we stayed out as long as we could but in the end the sun won. When in the country these are a great set of ruins to visit especially because of the hand crank that is used to across the Mopan river. So pretty along side this lovely little place .. it might be the biggest ruins you will encounter but they are certainly challenging .. lets see you climb to the of El Castillo. more to come stayed for the next video of our adventures in Belize"

The Bare Pantry Show in Belize
This is part 1 of our 8 day whirlwind tour to my home country of Belize. I was received well by the media and family and loved ones. This vlog covers the first 6 days.
GOB Taking Over Ships, IBC Registry
Tonight, the government is on the verge of another pair of nationalizations – and this time, it’s Immarbe and the IBC Registry – both foreign owned entities that control and operate the entire offshore business sector in Belize.
Let’s start with Immarbe – that’s the International Merchant Marine Registry of Belize, which sells the Belizean Flag as a flag of convenience to international vessels. That’s the one that we’ve been reporting on as causing much distress for Belize with the European Union. It’s gotten to the point where Belize was blacklisted by the European Union and our fisheries product could face trade sanctions because of the activities of the international vessels that carry Belize’s flag.
And then there’s the IBC Registry, or International Business Companies Registry. That’s the entity that registers so-called offshore companies which are given tax-free status and assured secrecy in their corporate affairs.
Both entities are at least partially owned by a company called Belize international Services Limited – which is believed to be part of the Ashcroft Alliance.
Is Mayor Tempting Fate With Contempt Proceedings?
7 weeks ago, attorneys for Belize City Council, and Belize Waste Control went before Justice Michelle Arana, hoping that before the Supreme Court, an amicable resolution could be ironed out so that City Hall can pay BWC 2.3 million dollars.
It is an outstanding debt owed to them due to an arbitration award which CitCo hasn’t paid since 2005. Viewers may remember that BWC started court proceedings to have Mayor Darrell Bradley cited for contempt in February, and since then the court has adjourned it twice.
Neither side want to proceed with it because Mayor Bradley risks being sent to jail, but BWC has used the committal application to give teeth to their threat that City Hall must pay the money, or else.
Well today, the matter was called up again before Justice Arana, and 7News found out that BWC may be giving Mayor Bradley one last chance before they press for committal:
Michael Young - Attorney for Belize City Council
"There was a report to the judge today, it was by the attorneys for the parties. Essentially the Belize City Council, through a letter which I wrote to their attorney to pass to their clients and to get instructions on it - we indicated what we think is a way forward, to settle the issue.
Wayne Samuels Caught Up In Civil Court
He’s a well-known operator, and a smooth one at that, but Wayne Samuels seems to have run out of schemes to run and strings to pull this weekend when he was arrested on the strength of a committal warrant. It seems Samuels – who is a business facilitator – has incurred fairly substantial debts all over the place. A few of his creditors have been after him for some time for failing to deliver on promised items – and on Friday evening police finally caught up to him.
All the cases are civil matters, so he appeared in Belize City Municipal Court this morning – where as we understand it, he was ordered to pay half the debts – amounting to thousands of dollars by the end of the day – as part payment of his outstanding overall debt. We could not get confirmed word from the court and we could not reach Samuels whose number was out of service – but late reports tell us that he was having difficulty making that lump-sum payment up to late this evening. We have received credible reports that others are lining up to make similar claims against him.
Notorious Wanted Man In Corozal
Corozal Police have issued wanted posters for two men. They are, Robert Hill who is wanted for armed robbery and Austin Sutherland who is wanted for burglary.
Hill is accused of robbing the Chang Li Game Room in Corozal Town on June 5th. He allegedly strode in and held the owner and his wife at gun point, while snatching up $300.00 dollars from the cash drawer. The businessman said he then rode off one one of the customer’s bicycles. A warrant for his arrest has been issued.
Our records show that in 2005 Hill was part of a prison escape. At the time, police said he was serving a combined 27 years for a strong of robbery conviction. Hill was also once convicted of the murder of a young girl, Becky Gilharry, but got off that conviction on appeal.
Only 6 OAS Member Countries Signed Convention against All Forms of Discrimination and Intolerance.
Last week, one of the big news items coming out of the 43rd OAS General Assembly was the “Inter-American Convention against All Forms of Discrimination and Intolerance.” The OAS secretary general explained that it is the first legally binding instrument that condemns discrimination "by reason of nationality, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression”…and many other parameters. But Belize didn’t sign it and it abstained from the vote. Now, CARIFLAGS, which is a LBGT Rights advocacy organization in the Caribbean has criticized a number of Caribbean countries for with-holding support at the last minute. But, it wasn’t only Caribbean Countries holding out. A release from the OAS says that of the 35 member countries, only six.
Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Uruguay signed unto it. They are described as the “first signatories” as other countries will be encouraged to sign on in coming years.
What Did Cayo Evergreen Do Right To Make Such High PSE Marks?
On Friday we told you about the PSE results and spoke to two of the top finishers in this year's test. And in reviewing that list, we couldn't help but notice that four of the finishers with the highest scores came from St. Andrews Anglican School in Cayo.
That's very impressive - and it's usually the kind of performance we hear about coming from private schools like Bernice Yorke, Hummingbird Elementary or Belize Elementary. But St. Andrews is a church - managed public school, so we visited today to find out what they're doing right to get out so many top finishers: The Standard six classes at St. Andrews Anglican in San Ignacio have 59 students. From this pool of students, St. Andrews fielded two of the top three finishers and four of the top fourteen finishers in the PSE. How did they do it?
Their teacher and principal explained that there were challenging circumstances.
Five Years After Moving In to Present Digs, BTB Needs New HQ
The Belize Tourism Board will soon be on the move. 7news has confirmed that the BTB is in the final stages of negotiations to buy a new building which will serve as its headquarters. It has outgrown its present location at the corner of South and Regent Streets only five years after it moved there in 2008. Presently, the BTB has been forced to rent space for as many as 20 staffers in an adjoining building on Regent Street.
And, now for its new location, best information suggests it will purchase another adjoining structure, the Espat building which is three lots south on Regent Street. We are told negotiations are well underway – and the move is expected shortly. The BTB Board reportedly looked at 9 buildings before choosing the Espat structure.
A Programme To Make Girls Fly
It is called Girls Fly, an organization led by Gael Sylvia, an American businesswoman, media host, speaker, and philanthropist. The program seeks at empowering women worldwide to become better individuals while sharing experiences with each other.
This week, Sylvia is in Belize to host sessions with Standard 4, 5 and six girls as well as women of all ages. She hopes to touch at least 10 thousand Belizean girls and women through the one-week program. A short press conference was held this morning and we were there.
Gael Sylvia - Prolific Speaker
"Girls Fly is a one day - multiple one day experiences for invited girls and women from the local community to have an experience that empowers them to believe in their dream, to understand the power of their dreams and to celebrate them. An example of the activities that these young girls and women will experience will be they will arrive at a local site (Belize Elementary Auditorium) and we'll actually celebrate their accomplishments because a part of believing in ourselves and believing instilling a sense of belief, the power of belief in others is to celebrate each road mark along that journey to accomplishing your dream.
Belize Turns Head At Caribbean Fashion Week

Belize Bested Guatemala In Amateur Boxing
On Friday night, Channel 7 brought you another card of live amateur boxing from the Biltmore Best Western in Belize City. There were a total of seven fights in which Guatemalan boxers, many of them champions faced Belizean Boxers. In the six fights contested by Belizean Boxers, Belize won four and lost two. It wasn’t a bad showing for the homeboys, and after the event we spoke to the winners.
Vicente Sansores - 17 year old Boxer (Translated by Jules Vasquez)
"From my point of view it was a very good fight, he was a respectable opponent. I believe he beat, that is how the judges saw it and I respect their decision."
Do you feel that you started to fight a little too late?
OCEANA Celebrates A Passion For Water
Saturday June 8th was World Oceans Day and to celebrate it, OCEANA mounted a photo exhibit at the Radisson and celebrated those who champion the wellbeing of the seas.
The exhibit, titled “Sea People” set out to capture fisherfolk – and their life on the water. The image-maker was Alex Ellis – and he told us what he saw through his lens.
E. Alex Ellis - Image-maker
"It's a collection of photographs, various coastal communities around the country displaying Belizeans and their connection and how they interact with the marine environment. So you have images from Sarteneja, images from Mullins River, Hopkins, you name it, the length of the country"
"What is some of the striking stories you can recall?"
E. Alex Ellis
"One in particular, we went down far south, sarstoon south with Will Maheia and when we got to the community down there, what's shocking there is an image where you see a Guatemalan gillnet fisher, but it was amazing just to see the amount of gill nets"
