Policeman Convicted of Theft
Police constable Brandon Hertular, who was charged with theft, was convicted of the offence today by the Chief Magistrate, Anne Marie Smith. Hertular was remanded into custody until tomorrow for sentencing. On March 5, 2012, Hertular stole a nine millimeter pistol, two cellular phones and one thousand six hundred and fifty dollars in cash. The complainant, Shirley Chicas, testified that Hertular and another man entered her home while she was there with her two sons and they identified themselves as police officers. She said the men, who were dressed in camouflage uniforms, proceeded to search her house and they took the pistol, cellphones and the money. She said they told her that they were going to take the items and cash to the police exhibit room and hold them there pending the outcome of their investigation into some robberies. Hertular testified and denied that he committed the offences. Hertular was also charged with burglary but that charged was withdrawn because there was no evidence to support that charge. Hertular was represented by attorney Anthony Sylvestre.
Tour Guide Arraigned on Stabbing Incident
Twenty-five year old Kareem Arnold, a tour guide of Ladyville who the police believe was one of two brothers involved in the stabbing of 19 year old Parish Copiuos, was charged with dangerous harm when he appeared today before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser. No plea was taken because the offence is indictable. Arnold was denied bail and he was remanded into custody until June 3. The incident occurred around 11 p.m. on April 16. Copiuos reported to the police that while he was at the house of his cousin, located at the corner of Pigeon Street and Parakeet Street in Ladyville, he was approached by Arnold and his brother, Kenroy Arnold. He said both brothers were armed with knives and they wrongfully accused him about a pervious incident, then one of them stabbed him in his chest. Copious said he tried to run but one of the brothers blocked his path and he was stabbed several times in the right side of his body and back. Copious was admitted to ward at KHMH where the doctor who examined him and treated him classified his injury as dangerous harm. Police say they are still searching for Kenroy Arnold to charge him in connection with the incident.

Police who were in the vicinity retrieved the shotgun, which had a 12 gauge cartridge in it, and they took Ramirez into custody.
Young Man Dies in Traffic Accident Close to Home
Nineteen year old Evan Garnett Jr. lost his life on Saturday morning as a result of a tragic traffic accident. The accident happened on Mile 11 on the Phillip Goldson highway where the vehicle that Garnett was driving collided onto a bus parked alongside the highway. Hipolito Novelo has the story.
HIPOLITO NOVELO REPORTING
Nine year old Evan Garnett Jr. was travelling from Belize City to his home in Los Lagos in the wee hours of Saturday morning. He was driving a white Honda Accord but as he approached Mile 11 on the Phillip Goldson Highway something went wrong. He reportedly lost control of the vehicle, veered on the opposite side of the highway and drove into the back of an old abandon bus- pushing the bus which was parked alongside the highway, a few yards. Ladyville Police arrived on the scene sometime after four o’clock.
ASP Christopher Noble, OC, Ladyville Police
“A single vehicle apparently collided into what is the remains of a passenger bus; it was parked opposite side of the highway. The lone individual that was in the vehicle succumbed and was been taken to the morgue. No accident fatality is something that you want to out rightly say is not extensive; every fatality is taken seriously; damage to the vehicle is immense.”

Ariel Rosado Scholarship Foundation rides the highways
On Wednesday, April 14, it will be three years since the tragic death of 28 year old cyclist and promising attorney Ariel Rosado, who was killed in a massive traffic accident at Mile 2 on the Philip Goldson Highway.
In memory of a life cut off before reaching full potential, the Ariel Rosado scholarship foundation was established to give life to future leaders of Belize.
It’s biggest initiative is a bike ride in his honor featuring amateur and professional riders, many of whom raced with Ariel professionally and were good friends. This year’s event was staged on Saturday beginning in Cayo at 6 in the morning and concluding at the Hour Bar Field on Princess Margaret Drive just after midday.
Ariel’s father and the president of the Foundation, Dr. Alvaro Rosado, estimates that 150 riders participated, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for scholarships to high school and college students.
Tourism industry seeks balance between cruise and overnight sectors
According to the Belize Tourism Board (BTB), overnight arrivals have increased by an average of 9.67% over the first three months of 2014, while more than 300,000 cruise ship visitors came to Belize for an increase of 22%.
Tourism numbers have been almost consistently on the rise for several years now and president of the Belize Tourism Industry Association (BTIA) Herbert Haylock, who spoke with us at the Belize Tourism Expo on Friday, said that the increases, which they hope to maintain, come from the collective promotion of the destination by the many persons involved.
The work started at the Expo continues on a one-on-one basis between operators and agents, he noted.
But with so many visiting Belize, and in view of the ongoing debate about cruise tourism’s place in the tourism sector and Belize’s development generally, where can the balance be found, so that today’s cruise tourists become much more?
Ministry of Health announces strategic development plans
The Ministry of Health today launched a general strategic plan covering the next ten years, to 2024, and a concurrent plan to address non-communicable diseases or NCDs.
The Director of the Policy and Planning Unit of the Ministry, Dr. Ramon Figueroa, says that this plan expands the Ministry’s view on health and wellness from a official strategy to a complete look at the health needs of the entire population.
The Ministry has previously been focusing on its own impact; Figueroa says they will now shift some of the work to key stakeholders in civil society and elsewhere who may have a fresh outlook.
This, he told us, will help the Ministry become more efficient. Despite being launched only today, the plans are already being implemented, at least in part.
Honduran fishermen survive week at sea rescued in Belizean waters
Three Honduran fishermen who were traveling to Placencia aboard their skiff the “Japheth” when their engine failed have been rescued.
For one week, up until early this morning, they were without food and had only a dwindling supply of water. But a local vessel sighted them near Columbus Caye, 32 miles southeast of Belize City and this afternoon they touched down on Belizean shores, only slightly worse for wear and welcomed by anxious family members.
Danly Kelly says they were praying that the east to southeast wind would push them toward the Belize coast, and on behalf of the group he is happy they were rescued as they could not have held out for much longer.
The Belize Coast Guard took responsibility for the group, bringing them safely into shore and ensuring they got urgent medical attention.
The Coast Guard’s Operations Officer Lieutenant Gregory Soberanis explains that they are suffering from dehydration and attendant illnesses.
Police constable convicted of theft
In March of 2012, a Belize City police officer was accused of wrongfully taking items from a home while conducting a search.
Today, he was convicted of the lesser charge of theft. Brandon Hertular was accused of going to the home of businesswoman Shirley Chicas on March 5, 2012 and taking a 9mm pistol, two cellular phones and $1,650 in cash.
He and another man dressed in camouflage clothing identified themselves as police officers to Chicas and claimed to be investigating robberies.
They said they would take the items to the Police Department’s Exhibit Room at Queen Street Police Station pending the outcome of their investigations.
Hertular was initially charged with burglary but the charge was withdrawn at trial due to lack of evidence.
Man charged for prohibited firearm found at funeral
24 year old Julian Willoughby was laid to rest last week Friday – but not without some incident.
Police, alert to possible threats of retaliation, had dispatched a team of officers to guard the church where the funeral was taking place to prevent any incidents.
And they acted quickly when they observed 21 year old Wilfred Ramirez of an Antelope Street Extension address in the area.
A sawed-off shotgun appeared to fall from inside his pants to the ground, causing a brief panic.
No one was harmed, but Ramirez was immediately detained. The gun contained a 12-gauge cartridge.
Ladyville tour guide accused of injuring teenager
On April 16, Ladyville teenager Parish Copius told police that he was stabbed by two brothers who wrongfully, he says, accused him of involvement in a prior incident.
Today one of those two brothers was charged with dangerous harm. 25 year old tour guide Kareem Arnold was read the charge before Senior Magistrate Sharon Frazer and no plea was taken as the offence is indictable.
Copius was socializing at a cousin’s house in the village late that night when two men he identified as Kareem and Kenroy Arnold approached him.
Both carried knives and proceeded to trap Copius and stab him in the chest, back and right side.
Disabled student wins Police Department award
The Police Department regularly awards young people for doing the right thing.
The most recent recipient was awarded today at Gwen Lizarraga High School. Graduating fourth former 18 year old Rasha Dawson lost her right leg to a traffic accident at the young age of 6 but remains steadfast and overcomes her challenges.
The Evergreen Street resident is a member of Belize Association of Persons Living with Disabilities and the youth group Motivating Youths of Belize, and regularly volunteers to assist the less fortunate, whether it is fellow youth or persons with disabilities.
She balances this with her school work and being a rolemodel for those who know her, such as the time when she made her cousins return things they stole from a neighborhood grocery shop.

Eco-Challengers Fight Strong Winds to Kayak Around Ambergris Caye
The 10th Annual Ambergris Caye Kayaking Challenge was a brutal one for the competitors. 40+ miles, 2 days, camping in the wilderness at the tip of the caye, it’s a huge physical and mental challenge. And this year, the 20+ mile per hour winds and gusts that were almost constant over the two days, hitting the little boats basically sideways the whole time, made things even tougher.
The water looks beautiful (especially when a cloud rolls over) but it was choppy and milky from the churned up sand.
2nd place came in just a few minutes after. It was harder to get this young San Pedrano out of his kayak. LOVE to see all these young locals participating…a really amazing, constructive and inspiring event. Though I must be getting old…usually this gives me just a flicker of excitement that I too will do this next year! This year, it didn’t even cross my mind…
Belize Eco Kids Summer Camp: Sign Up Today!
The deadline for applying to the annual Eco Kids educational summer camp is drawing near, and the Lodge at Chaa Creek is urging young Belizeans between the ages of 8 and 13 years old to get on board!
Officially known as the Children’s Summer Camp Scholarship Program, the Eco Kids camp is a great opportunity for young Belizeans to learn about their natural environment and develop skills while having fun during a weeklong jungle adventure.
The adventure begins on Saturday July 20th at Chaa Creek’s Macal River Camp and runs until Sunday, July 28. Twenty-four lucky young Belizeans will stay in comfortable casitas and enjoy three healthy meals and snacks each day while taking part in structured educational activities. Chaa Creek supplies all accommodation and meals, the arts and craft materials, tee shirts, 24-hour camp counsellor supervision and guided tours conducted by licensed naturalist guides.
This is a little bit healthier version of a burrito. I used leftovers to stuff the cabbage and then baked to make a wonderful meal. You can put anything you want on the inside and you can use spaghetti sauce or taco sauce as the topping.
Financial Breakdown For Belize Trip
As part of our series on the costs associated with travelling through the Americas, today we will continue with our detailed expenses in Belize. In case you missed the original post, throughout our trip we’ve been keeping detailed expenses. Every time we make a purchase we write down our costs in either a paper notebook or a phone. We decided to put those detailed expenses to use and show you how much it cost us to travel in each country.
Coming into Belize, we didn’t really know what to expect in terms of a budget. We were actually surprised by how expensive things were. I guess we were spoiled by the prices in Mexico. In the end, we went over our goal of $110 a day. Our average for 12 days in Belize was $124.66, almost the same amount as the US portion of our trip.
Caye Caulker – A True Tropical Paradise
The caye we went to was Caye Caulker, the smaller, and less touristy one. We actually went there to meet up with one my friends from the US that was on vacation there. Because there was 3 of us we decided to get larger accommodations and through a stroke of luck we ended up staying in the best Villa in the whole town – Villa Hermosa. It was right on the main street and it was heavenly. It had two bedrooms, an open concept with the breeze flowing in through the twenty or so windows, and hammocks in the front porch overlooking the main street of the Caye.
My friend and I would sit for hours on the hammocks with the breeze flowing through our bodies. The only reason we would get off the hammocks was to stop one of the many vendors that passed by the house for some nourishment. We had the Cake Lady (she’s on YouTube) pass by every day once she found out we have a sweet tooth. She has been making cakes on this island since she was 16 (almost 30 years now), and she goes around selling delicious goodnesses like coconut pie, key lime pie, chocolate-coconut pie, banana bread and so on. We bought at least 3-4 slices of pie from her every day, resulting in our respective weight gains, I’m sure.
Ocean Temperatures Reach El Niño Threshold; El Niño Odds Rise Above 65%
For the first time since the fall of 2012, weekly-averaged sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in the equatorial Pacific have reached the threshold needed for an El Niño event to be declared. By definition, an El Niño episode occurs when SSTs are at least +0.5°C from average for three consecutive months in the region 120°W - 170°W, 5°S - 5°N (called the Niño 3.4 region.) The weekly ENSO update issued by NOAA on May 12, 2014, put ocean temperatures in this Niño 3.4 region for the past seven days at +0.5°C from average. An El Niño event is still not a sure thing, though. We saw similar behavior in the fall of 2012, with SSTs warming up above the +0.5°C threshold, prompting NOAA to issue an El Niño Watch. However, the ocean SSTs were not able to hold for the required three month period, and no El Niño event ended up happening. However, this year the odds appear more favorable. NOAA has issued an El Niño Watch for the summer and fall of 2014, giving a greater than 65% chance that an El Niño event will occur during summer, a boost upwards from their >50% chance given the previous month.
Agri-tourism eco-lodge feels like Jurassic Park
Belcampo guests immersed in local food, culture, nature. Oversized hummingbirds and a pair of toucans flit about a tangle of jungle that is 50 shades of moist green.
A hefty iguana flicks his tongue at me as troops of treetop howler monkeys unleash a choir of otherworldly rasps and gasps that sound more like aggravated dinosaurs — I feel like I’m on the set of Jurassic Park and I haven’t even got out of the shower yet.
Belcampo Belize is an agri-tourism eco-lodge that is all about saturating its guests in locally farmed organic food, Mayan culture and tropical nature and that includes a giant, full-frontal picture window facing the virgin jungle in every suite’s spa-like bathroom.
An English-speaking country wedged between Mexico and Guatemala, Belize’s sparsely populated southernmost province of Toledo is a remote frontier lucky to have retained about 75 per cent of its rainforest.
I fly into Toledo’s Caribbean-paced main town of Punta Gorda (pop: 6,000) with its funky mix of dreadlocks, expats and rickety seaside watering holes and am picked up for the 20-minute shuttle to the hilltop perch of Toledo’s only luxury lodge overlooking 23,000 acres of largely untrammelled jungle.
Woman Credits Fallen LAPD Detective With Bringing Kidnapped Daughter Home
A Ladera Heights mother is crediting a fallen veteran Los Angeles Police Department detective with bringing her kidnapped daughter home years ago.
Raquel Butler said Det. Ernest Allen, who was killed Friday when a cement truck crashed into his vehicle in Beverly Hills, was her guardian angel.
“I don’t know where I would be right now, where my daughter would be right now, if he didn’t feel for me,” Butler said. “He really held my hand through it, literally.”
Back in 2008, Butler’s then-7-year-old daughter, Zaria, was taken for two months by the girl’s father, Dahnje Marceo.
Allen was the lead detective out of the LAPD’s Southwest Division assigned to the case.
Butler said she talked to Allen multiple times a day until he secured a reward. Along with the FBI, he located the pair in Belize.
“He promised me he would do everything in his power to get my daughter back, and he honored that,” Butler said. “All tears of joy. He was like, ‘I told you, we are gonna get her home.’”
“I’m thankful to everybody who helped to bring me back,” Zaria said.
Local students discover new bacteria, study dwindling coral reef
Two Camdenton High School students are garnering attention at the state and national levels for their scientific endeavors.
Katie Chappell was announced as the state of Missouri’s sole representative to the National Stockholm Water Prize Award national competition.
Chappell will receive an all-expense paid trip to a site on the Potomac River outside of Washington, D.C. to compete against representatives from every U.S. state and protectorate for the opportunity for an all-expense paid week-long trip to Stockholm, Sweden.
She collected data from the Marine Biology / IB trip to the Glovers Reef Atoll island off the coast of Belize. Her study assessed the effectiveness of a commercial fishing ban implemented by the government of Belize designed to protect its sensitive, diminishing coral reef ecosystem.
