Wolfe’s Woofer: Paddy McKaw
“You’re naked, old man. Put some clothes on.” “Are you talking to me?” Sherry called, from the kitchen. “No. It’s Paddy McKaw, that damn parrot again.” Three weeks ago, in a moment of stupidity, I bought a blue and gold macaw from a friend of Mario’s. Someone had taught that parrot to swear like I do when I hit my thumb with the hammer. Even worse, he commented on everything he saw. “You look like you got drunk last night,” the parrot said. “But then, you always look that way.”

Doctor Love: Concerned Mother
Dear Doctor Love, My sixteen-year-old daughter has asked me to let her go on the birth control pill. Because of irregularity, she has to be careful to avoid having embarrassing accidents. She has terrible pains during that time and I understand that it can help manage the irregularity of her cycle. She is a good student and a good daughter and she says she is not sexually active. I believe her because she doesn’t have a boyfriend. My concern is her father. He has never had a big input into the daily upbringing of the children and he doesn’t like to talk about these things so, do I tell him or take her to the doctor as she has asked and leave it between us? I don’t like to keep secrets from my husband but I think he does not need to know. /s/ Concerned Mother

A Look Back at The Split on Caye Caulker, Belize
The small island of Caye Caulker was split in two by infamous Hurricane Hattie in 1961. The storm also caused thousands of people to evacuate the then capital, Belize City. Hattieville, now a village (and home to the Belize prison), was set up as a refugee camp for over 10,000 people. Today, on Caye Caulker, there seems to be some disagreement about the Split’s origins – if a smaller passage was made larger by the hurricane or if it was man-made after the storm. Either way, ever since I moved to Belize – and for many years before that – the beach area at the split has been a centerpiece for those living on and visiting Caye Caulker. A place for swimming, enjoying the sun and sand, for water sports, for beer and music. The main users were the many backpackers and international budget travelers, often people in their 20s, and the locals. The Lazy Lizard Bar is probably the most visited in Belize.

Port cooperation and maritime security in Belize
Identifying and dealing with potential threats to port security operations was at the core of a three-day workshop in Belize City, Belize (18-20 July). The event took a closer look at security needs and associated risks. Through interactive presentations and discussions between participants the workshop helped identify opportunities for increased collaboration between government agencies and port owners/operators as well as assessing port security training priorities. The workshop also discussed specific issues around Port Facility Security Assessments (PFSAs) in keeping with the international requirements in IMO’s International Ship and Port Facility Security (ISPS) Code, for example, identification and evaluation of important assets and infrastructure which are to be protected.

Mansfield leads state system honors trip to Belize
Every summer, one of the 14 universities from Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education organizes a trip abroad exclusively for honors students. This year, Mansfield University volunteered to host the trip. Twelve of the universities, including Mansfield, selected two honors students to enroll in the program. The destination was a place where Mansfield University is becoming well known, thanks to Political Science professors Jeff Bosworth and Jonathan Rothermel, the small Central American country of Belize (population: est. 380,000). For the last three years, Bosworth and Rothermel accompanied Mansfield students for a short-term, study abroad program in Belize. This summer they took the State System honors group.
