Wolfe’s Woofer: Dead Or Alive?
“Mr. Dennis, I got to have some more nails and another caulking gun,” Mario said.
“O.K. Go back to the bodega and see if there’s anything else we need to pick up while we’re at the hardware store.”
I hated to move off of my comfortable front porch but there was no way to avoid a trip. Mario may not be the most reliable helper I’ve ever hired but when he does work he’s the best around. I try to keep him happy.
At the store Mario greeted everyone as we walked around doing our shopping. We turned the corner of an aisle and someone called, “Hey, Mario!”
Letter to the editor: Another Great week for San Pedro
Washington University of Health and Science greatly appreciates all the time and effort placed by the San Pedro Town Council with the ongoing improvements to the streets of our beautiful island of Ambergris Caye (La Isla Bonita). San Pedro road crews have been hard to work transporting fill to low lying areas while preparing the roadways for resurfacing. The road resurfacing project ensures quality improvement not only for the town, but for all the local businesses and the families in the community as they navigate through their busy day throughout town. WUHS students have already commented and complimented on how much smoother their commute to and from campus has already improved.
Doctor Love: G.H.
Dear Doctor Love,
I’m almost eighteen years old and I’ve been with my boyfriend for six months. I am very involved in my church and my community and I have a lot of friends. I also have an evening job and a younger sister who I help look after. My boyfriend is still in school but he’s never even had a part time job and doesn’t have many friends. He gets very upset when I can’t see him when he wants. If I go out with friends he won’t come along, then he sulks and doesn’t speak to me for a long time. He refuses to have my little sister around us and thinks my mom should get someone to look after her so we can be alone. I save money and he has none and he resents my job. He texts me all the time and expects me to answer immediately, even if I am working. Right now we spend one weekend day only with each other, but when he is out of school he wants to move in together. I’m afraid he will try to control my time even more and if he doesn’t have a job, I will have the responsibility of all of the bills. I love him but I don’t know if I can be his only interest.

Paulita Bedran Scholarship Winner
Our club, along with international donors and sponsors, support a scholarship program for students starting high school. The Raphael Cal Memorial scholarship supports them through four years of studies and our Scholarship Committee members are their mentors. We had seven students to celebrate last night and they are all graduating next weekend. Five students are at Sacred Heart College and two students are at St. Ignatius High School. The gift of two more years of school is given from by the Paulita Bedran Memorial Scholarship and is awarded to the graduating student with the highest grade point average over the four years. That award went to Alberto Barrera. He will be studying at Sacred Heart Junior College in the field of business. The students read thank you letters to their sponsors and were very thankful for the support of their families and Rotary."
