Wolfe’s Woofer: Mamey
The sign at the vegetable stand said, Mamey – $2.00 each. “Is this a fruit?” Sherry asked me. “It’s what is known as a mamey,” I told her. “They’re really good for flavoring ice cream and milk shakes. I like them.” Sherry bought one for $2.00 and that night I had mamey flavored milk shake. A few days later we were back at the vegetable stand where the table was still piled high with mamey. When she paid for the fruit Sherry asked the shop owner , “Do these things sell very well?” “In some places they do,” the owner said, “but in my shop they don’t.”

Doctor Love: Not Daddy’s Little Angel
Dear Doctor Love, My six year old daughter has a terrible temper, and my wife doesn’t do anything about it. My little girl screams and throws fits on the floor. She kicks at her mother and even calls my wife stupid and smacks her. My wife says our daughter will outgrow it, but it is getting worse. She is even mean to her playmates. What should I do? /s/Not Daddy’s Little Angel

Why are politicians avoiding re-registration?
It has been 20 years since the last time a voter re-registration exercise has been conducted in Belize and since then; many voters have died, some have moved, new voters have been added, an influx of immigrants have settled in the country, Belize’s nationality has been sold illegally through Immigration hustling and the country’s economy has generally ailed because of greedy politicians.

One of My Favorite New Businesses in Belize: Delices De France
Just a few days ago, I walked into the new French bakery in San Pedro, Belize and, for the fifth day in a row, I bought a GORGEOUS baguette sandwich for lunch. Just behind me was a San Pedro traffic officer buying 2 baguettes to-go. And a mom with her 2 kids in school uniforms buying chocolate croissants. Zut alors! I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS NEW BUSINESS ON AMBERGRIS CAYE! And it’s not just me. The French bakery, Delices de France, is classic France here in San Pedro, Belize – making really REALLY great French pastries and bread and the baguette? It is my very favorite.

The Army makes an impact near the equator
Earlier this month, U.S. Army Reserve soldiers assigned to the 672nd Engineer Company, 301st Maneuver Enhancement Brigade, arrived in Belize where they began work on three different construction projects that were intended to benefit several different communities in the region. The projects are part of an annual multinational exercise, Beyond the Horizon, which brings together soldiers, airmen, and marines from the reserve and active components of the U.S. military, as well as personnel from foreign military organizations. The Ladyville Health Clinic is a small clinic in one of the largest villages in Belize, and didn’t have enough space for its patients, or room for all of the medical equipment that the village desired. The Renegades began construction on a new building at the clinic, significantly expanding the clinic’s capacity, and ability to help those in need.

Ex-Treasure Hunter Again Told to Give Up Coins' Location
A federal judge is warning an ex-treasure hunter that he could face another contempt-of-court charge if he doesn't reveal the location of 500 missing gold coins. Ohio Judge Algenon Marbley on Friday ordered Tommy Thompson to cooperate by granting power of attorney to allow the government to figure out if a trust in Belize knows the coins' whereabouts, reports the AP. Marbley refused Thompson's request to appoint a civil attorney to help him review records in order to "jog his memory," about where the gold is, as the Columbus Dispatch puts it. "What stretches the court’s credulity is why do you need a civil attorney to explain your own documents," Marbley said. "The court is not going to be complicit in spurious machinations."

Olympian Simone Biles Breaks Her Silence, Makes Tearful Confession To Fans She Can’t Bottle Up
The hugely popular show, Dancing with the Stars made its debut in 2005 - and since then, it has managed to wow audiences by putting all kinds of celebrities in a leotard and a pair of dancing shoes! One such celebrity super-star competing in its 24th season is Simone Biles, who is better known for her amazing performance in the 2016 Olympics as part of the U.S. Gymnastics team. Much has already been said about her athletic prowess, but it is something that she did on this dance competition that is making her an audience favorite all over again. Week four into her season on the show, Simone was challenged with dancing to a routine that followed the theme of what she considered her "Most Memorable Year." Of course, the audience had assume 2016 to be that year when she won four gold medals and became one of the most famous gymnasts in the world! However, what Simone chose to highlight instead was something much more personal from way back in the year 2000 when she was just 3-years-old. For those who might not know, this is the year when she was legally adopted by her grandparents. Simone emotionally recalled:
