Two remanded for aggravated assault with firearm
Two Belize City men were remanded to prison after they were arraigned before Magistrate Ladonna John this morning on a charge of aggravated assault with a firearm.
Lloyd Leslie, 23, a laborer and resident of 5 Bocotora Street, and Dwayne Evelin, 25, a laborer and resident of 17 Armadillo Street, both entered not guilty pleas after Magistrate John read the charge to them.
Magistrate John explained to the men that because the offense for which they were charged was allegedly committed with a firearm, her court could not offer them bail.
“You have to apply to the Supreme Court for bail,” she told the two men, before they were remanded to prison until their next court date, October 26.
Men remanded for FirstCaribbean robbery bailed
Four of five men who were remanded to the Belize Central Prison on the allegation that they staged a broad-daylight armed robbery of FirstCaribbean International Bank branch, located at San Cas Plaza, were granted bail this morning by Supreme Court Justice Antoinette Moore.
The four accused men all pleaded guilty to one count of robbery and one count of conspiracy to commit robbery. The fifth man was only charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.
Justice Moore decided to grant the four accused men bail despite strong objections from the office of the Director of Public Prosecution, represented by Crown Counsel Sabita Maharaj, who argued that at least two of the men have previous convictions and are likely to commit other offenses if released on bail. The Crown also based its objections for bail on public interest grounds.
Melchor mob attacks Belizean shoppers
Around this time of the year, there are more excursions from Belize to Melchor de Mencos, Guatemala, than the normal weekend trips, because many Belizean families are of the view that they can literally stretch their dollars in Melchor, especially in the season before the new school year, when their uniform/books expenses are very high.
Yesterday, Sunday, however, a Belizean family suffered a traumatic experience and had to run back across to the Belize side after they were attacked by a mob of Guatemalan men near the Melchor market.
This incident comes on the heels of the Guatemalan navy’s aggression against the Belize Territorial Volunteers two Sundays ago, on August 16, in the Sarstoon River, Belizean territory, where the Guatemalan navy has been exercising sovereignty since the last days of May when the Belize Government ordered a contingent of the Belize Coast Guard to withdraw from the area.
Boy, 15, shot dead in home invasion
A young man, 15, died after being shot at the farm of his grandfather, Thomas Polanco, located at Mile 35 on the Hummingbird Highway, shortly after 9:00 Friday morning by three masked men, who were armed with machetes.
Police strongly believe that one of Polanco’s past employees was one of the three men who went to Polanco’s residence on Friday morning with machetes, held up and tied up the family members who were at home at the time, and then ransacked the house looking for cash and valuables.
The gunmen stole $3,000 cash, Polanco’s 12-gauge shotgun and some cartridges, as well as some household items.
According to police, Thomas Polanco’s teenaged grandson, Briton Tharique Polanco, 15, who was out in the field at the time the robbers went to the farm, heard noise coming from the house and ran up to the door of the house to see what was happening, and that was when one of the robbers shot him in the chest with the stolen shotgun, which belongs to his grandfather.
The three bandits then escaped in the family’s vehicle, and are currently on the run.
Shot in ambush by “friendly fire?”
A 16-year-old who, along with two other men, allegedly was lay-waiting an intended victim around 8:45 p.m. last Thursday, is now in a critical condition at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital after he inadvertently was shot in the abdomen by his partner in crime while in them ambush position, according to police.
Police say that the three men went into the Queen’s Square Anglican Primary School compound on Fairweather Street on Thursday night and took up ambush positions to shoot a man who was to come over the Fairweather Street Bridge and onto Fairweather Street, near the school compound.
As the unsuspecting, intended victim was approaching, one of the three men took out a .38 Special revolver to shoot the victim, but the gun misfired, and he began to tamper with it.
According to police, the revolver then fired a round which hit the man’s accomplice, the 16-year-old, in the stomach.
La Immaculada Credit Union meeting “got too hot” and was adjourned
On Saturday, August 22, Muffles College in Orange Walk Town was the venue for a Special General Meeting held by the La Immaculada Credit Union. The member-owners had collected signatures demanding a Special General Meeting to address the issues surrounding the termination of Yolanda Gomez, the former General Manager.
In April, Gomez was suspended from her position, then in July, she was terminated. There are allegations of fraud, forgery, unauthorized cash movement and loan write-off that the Board claimed was done by Yolanda Gomez.
However, at the Special General Meeting there was no actual evidence presented because the investigation is still ongoing, said Board members.
Fans ride underdog BDF to 1-1 draw with Verdes
The news began filtering through the football community on Saturday night, and spread quickly when it was made public on Krem’s Press Cadogan Sports Show on Sunday morning, that FC Belize, the last remaining Belize City based team in the Premier League of Belize (PLB), had withdrawn or been dropped out of the competition before playing their first scheduled match, which should have been against Placencia Assassins on Saturday night, August 22, at the Michael Ashcroft Stadium in Independence.
Following their second match forfeited to end the previous season, there was talk of a possible suspension of FC Belize from future competitions.
But the new management of the Premier League, which now has a board of directors and a hired General Manager, Wilhelm Miguel, to run its competition, had appeared sympathetic to the plight of FC Belize, which had struggled with ownership controversy for the past year, along with a tremendous handicap with the closure of the MCC until early this year. And just a couple weeks before the start of this new season, the lights at the MCC were taken down by the National Sports Council, making work-out difficult for the team.

Editorial: Armed and dangerous
On Wednesday, August 12, United Democratic Party (UDP) Junior Cabinet Minister, Hon. Mark King, made serious threats against the Kremandala organization; against Evan X Hyde, the Kremandala chairman; and against Mose Hyde, the general manager of KREM Television and a talk show host. Mr. King’s threats were broadcast on national television news: the threats had been made earlier that Wednesday during a speech in his Lake Independence constituency.
Mr. King, a former Belize Defence Force soldier who was made a Justice of the Peace in 2005 by the PUP Belize Rural Central area representative, Hon. Ralph Fonseca, is thought by some observers to be eccentric. But, he owns security companies, which means he has armed employees at his disposal. Mr. King is also the Minister of Gangs. We are not exactly sure what his portfolio involves, but it is for sure that the Junior Minister has frequent contact with the various Belize City gang leaders who have been in charge of work gangs on government infrastructural projects in the old capital. Overall then, it is reasonable to say that Hon. Mark King is armed and dangerous.
From the Publisher
With your permission, I’d like to use my column today to inform you about your enemy. Sun Tzu insists that you should know as much as you can about your enemy. Belizeans, your enemy is the Guatemalan military, which now directly controls the political directorate in Guatemala.
The President of Guatemala, Otto Pérez Molina, is a General of the Guatemalan Army. He was an officer in the Guatemalan military during the presidencies of Lucas García and Ríos Montt. General Perez Molina was head of the EMP during the presidency of Ramiro de León Carpio, from 1993 to 1996. The EMP is the Estado Mayor Presidencial (Presidential Military Staff). The EMP is in charge of interrogation and torture.
The following is from pg. 307 of Francisco Goldman’s THE ART OF POLITICAL MURDER, published by Grove Press in 2007: “General Otto Pérez Molina represented the military during the Peace Accords negotiations. He was one of the principal architects of the amnesty. In 1996, the year the accords were signed, the New York Times reported that in the early 1990s, when then Colonel Pérez Molina was the head of Military Intelligence, he’d ordered the murder of the captured guerrilla Efraín Bámaca.
The elusive courage
In molding democratic citizens most people argue that a good education system is needed. I would like to add another component to a successful democracy besides good education and people participation – courage.
Due to victimization and our colonial history most countries in Latin America and the Caribbean have citizenries that are afraid of their government. This is a sad state of affairs because the people should give direction to their government. This is the only way history has shown you will have a prosperous and happy country that’s democratic.
We need only look at the Scandinavian countries of Europe. Many times it is not that the citizenry don’t know their rights and responsibilities: it is that they are afraid that if they exercise their rights they will be victimized by their government. Your newspaper has experienced such occurrences already.

Finally the plane arrived…just a little four seater…and we were off…bye Beaver Island. Man…what a great spot.
Remembering Radio Swan Island ….
A casual Facebook interaction with Daedra Haylock on a post by Renee Trujillo yesterday brought back a few memories from my childhood, partly from what it was like growing up in a Belize before Independence and the proliferation of available and accessible media.
I grew up in a time when we only had one radio station, no tv and mostly in parts of the country where running water, electricity, paved roads and telephone service was virtually non-existent outside of the population center that was the old capital Belize City.
Besides Radio Belize’s AM signal my folks used to tune into baseball and other sports, as well as the Grand Old Opry (Country and Western music) on Armed Forces Radio and news on the BBC, on shortwave. It occurred to me while commenting about media in Belize with the ladies and monitoring the progress of Hurricane Danny that there was also another radio station that my weather-wise folks used to tune into that perhaps the majority of Belizeans currently do not even know existed and played a role in Belize’s history.
The Evolution of Belize’s Public External Debt
In a letter to the News Director of Channel 7 News Belize and the Editor, AMANDALA newspaper, Dr. Carla Barnett, former Financial Secretary, Government of Belize, and currently United Democratic Party Standard Bearer, Freetown Division wrote:
“August 12, 2015
I have heard several commentators make strong assertions about the state of the public finances and public debt, that have caused me to pause. Commentators have suggested, for example, that government is “borrowing at an unprecedented rate” or that the debt to GDP ratio has risen to “unprecedented levels”. These assertions tend to be made without providing the supporting evidence and, having been involved in finding solutions to the fiscal and debt crisis of the mid-2000’s, I know that these comments are not based on accurate information.
The “Battle” for Sarstoon – a first person account
As usual these are my observations and opinions solely, and, of course, my conclusions for my own purposes. It is NOT a news report.
The women! Carolyn Trench-Sandiford woke me up a few minutes after 4:00 a.m. and quite adeptly drove us to Barranco Village. Although I had awakened at 3:00 am and had gotten up and made coffee, I went back to bed and for some inexplicable reason fell back asleep. I was awakened from blissful sleep when she hollered for me outside and I cannot thank her enough. I would’ve hated to have missed going to the Sarstoon.
As a citizen I am thankful for the efforts of the Belizean Territorial Volunteers to try and wake up Belizeans from their induced sedation where the existential threat that Guatemala’s claim is to the nation of Belize. The BTVIPNP saying “No” to the ICJ does not make a lot of sense to me but the effort to draw attention to Guatemala’s posture, (stance and action), as well their more critical-than-not analyses of and commentary on the GOB’s dispute management in this regard is very needed at a time when the official opposition has been too circumspect in my estimation.
The “Battle” of the Sarstoon … (Part 2)
There is something about being out on the open water that exhilarates me. It is a primal, visceral reaction. My thoughts as we steamed determinedly towards the Sarstoon and perhaps a date with destiny were a jumbled stream of consciousness as I absorbed the sights, the sounds, the emotions, the feelings, my now compatriots.
The boats had returned to the small dock at Barranco after taking about 50-60 persons presumably to the Sarstoon Island. I had managed to climb on to one that had a bikini, strapped on a life vest, and settled into the shade for what I anticipated would be a swift, smooth ride across a calm sea with Carolyn Trench-Sandiford, Alberto Vellos and Dickie Bradley as my seat companions.
Richard Bradley Jr., another attorney, and Alton Humes, a reporter, had helped a frail, elderly Garifuna lady to a seat on the foremost “tart” in front of me and I later learned she was Barranco’s most famous resident, Andy Palacio’s aunt. I was glad that he was there in spirit. In the flesh he and I would’ve composed a song, maybe even two, mostly for my entertainment and because that is what he does. It is a Garifuna cultural tradition.
Slices of Life from Belize - August 23, 2015
Well this entry will be brief, because we've hardly had any rain. Oh sure, a few storms have blown through, but in no way dropping enough water to keep things lush and growing. One of our local news stations, 7 News Belize, ran an article about the situation with this headline: "Min. of Agriculture: There is a Northern Drought (Duh)". You can read the article here.
Farmers are really bearing the brunt of the weather situation. Crops, especially corn, have been turning yellow from lack of water. Our trees and shrubs almost all have a yellow tinge, and our grass is turning brown and crunchy.
David was saying just the other day that we want and need rain so badly, he wouldn't care that we would have the dogs cooped up in the house with us, should the rain gods decide to visit. That's really saying something.
An updated list: Low Season closings and openings in San Pedro
Ah, low season on Ambergris Caye.
Do restaurants, resorts and hotels close down because the visitors aren’t coming to Belize? Or do the visitors stop coming to Belize because so many restaurants, resorts and hotels are closed?
Well, for whatever reasons a lot of places here on Ambergris Caye close — for as little as two weeks to as long as two months. During this time some places upgrade, change menus, add fresh coats of paint.
It is pretty safe to say that come November, the island will be back in full swing and looking as beautiful as ever.
Here is an updated list of Low Season venue closings (with some who plan to stay open through the season). If you know of others e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 650-1987. I will update as needed.
Faculty explore, share talents, serve during summer break
College of Southern Maryland professors Paul Billeter, Laura Polk and Michael Walls traveled to Belize, Bolivia, Peru and remote Appalachia this summer to research and study, and provide service to communities outside of the region.
Billeter developed a lifelong passion for the tropics as an undergraduate biology major and during a trip to Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles, in 1968.
As a biology and physical sciences division professor since 1974, Billeter continues to learn about and explore the Caribbean region, and he shares his love for marine life and the tropics in the classroom and on travel study experiences each spring.
This summer, Billeter gave a presentation on the evolution of travel courses at the Conference on International Coral Reef Education at the Tropical Education and Research Center in San Pedro, Belize.
“The conference brought together college professors who teach field biology courses focused on marine biology and coral reefs,” Billeter said in the release. “My presentation focused on the evolution of travel courses in the Caribbean over the past 45 years and how I have internationalized my course to include case studies from Chile, Australia, Belize, the Maldives, the Line Islands, United Arab Emirates and Mexico.”

Lee recently visited with local CHTA members and ministers of tourism in various countries including Antigua, The Bahamas, Barbados and Belize.
