San Pedro Tiger Sharks clinch #1 seed in the 2018 NEBL playoffs
The San Pedro Tiger Sharks have managed to lock in the #1 seed in the 2018 National Elite Basketball League (NEBL) playoffs, after narrowly defeating the Digicell Belize City Defenders 71-68 on Saturday, April 21st in San Pedro Town. With just one week remaining in the NEBL regular season, the results of this upcoming weekend’s games will decide the playoff matchups and the order of the remaining three seeds. During their last home game of the regular season, the Tiger Sharks hosted the Digicell Defenders at the Angel Nuñez Auditorium, where their resilience granted them the much-needed win to secure their playoff seeding. The Defenders were by far the most challenging team the island athletes have played at home court. At the end of the first quarter, the visiting team garnered a four-point lead, and during the second quarter, the Tiger Sharks had difficulty netting any scores at all. The Defenders’ dominance was clear and by halftime, they were leading 33-31.

San Pedro House of Culture celebrates first Festival of Cultures
The Boca del Rio Area of San Pedro Town came alive on Sunday, April 22nd with the first-ever Festival of Cultures took place on the beach.

Throughout the day, Caribbean Kings provided musical entertainment, while island residents and visitors stopped by to learn about the different cultures of Belize. The traditional food of the Garifuna, Chinese, Mestizo, Maya, Creole, East Indians and even Lebanese were all available for sale. Guillermo ‘Mito’ Paz of the SPHC stated that the event was a large one to organize, and he is thankful to those who stepped up to help. “It was an opportunity for Belizeans and visitors alike to learn more about the different cultural groups that make up Belize,” he said, adding that the SPHC looks forward to hosting the event next year.

At 5AM, a large crowd gathered in front of the Hope Haven & SHINE Center located on Lion Street. Before the race began, Kent Gabourel, Sports Coordinator at The San Pedro Town Council thanked everyone for supporting the fundraiser.

Inauguration Ceremony for the Rehabilitation and Expansion of the Orange Walk Town Farmers’ Market
The newly rehabilitated and expanded farmers’ market in Orange Walk Town will be officially opened on April 26th, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. Financing in the amount of BZ$$554,986.10 for the works, was provided by the European Union through funds from the Accompanying Measures for Sugar (AMS 2013) programme, which supports the Government's Sugar Adaptation Strategy with counterpart funds by the Government of Belize. Two objectives of the Sugar Adaptation Strategy are to foster diversification of the agricultural production base in the Orange Walk and Corozal Districts; and to minimize the overall macroeconomic impacts on the communities of the Orange Walk and Corozal Districts, that result from reductions in the guaranteed prices for Belize’s sugar exports and competition in a more liberalized market.

Another Drug Plane Lands - This Time It’s a Jet!
Another drug plane landed in northern Belize early this morning, and, tonight police have no drugs, and no suspects. In fact all they have is the headache of figuring how to move a very large and valuable aircraft from off a village road. Jules Vasquez has details:.. The jet was found on the San Estevan/Progresso Road early this morning. It's a British Aerospace 125 700 - commonly known as the Hawker Siddeley 125, described as a mid-sized business jet. But the business here was drugs, so this one had no seats for passengers inside: all that had been cleared away for a massive drug cargo. And while the aircraft appears to be intact, under the wings are scorched - from where the crew apparently tried - unsuccessfully - to set it on fire.

A Minor For A Major Murder
This evening, a 16 year old minor was taken over to the family court and charged for murder. Police say he killed 30 year old Jason Belencio on Lovely Lane nine days ago. The minor - whose face we cannot show - allegedly shot Belencio multiple times on a Sunday afternoon as he walked to his mother - in - law's home. Police did not disclose the motive and Belencio was not known to be gang affiliated.

One Man For Murder, Others Detained
And over at Magistrate's Court - there was another male arraigned for murder. 28 year old Marlon Everett from West Canal was charged for the murder of Albert Johnson on Saturday night. It happened on Rectory Lane, not far from West Canal - where Johnson - a Punta Gorda resident - was shot in the head. Everett has been charged - but others from that area are also expected to face charges.

No Arrest For Businessman Slain In Store
And there have been no arrests made yet in the murder of businessman Oscar Rosado, Sr. But 7News has learnt that police do have a 19 year old suspect who they are seeking tonight - as well as another suspect in custody, and a taxi impounded. The 70 year old was killed in his store yesterday afternoon. A trio of men entered pretending to return a pound of nails. One of them had a gun and attacked his wife, Elena. When Oscar Rosado tried to intervene and pushed the assailant, he shot Rosado twice in the head, killing him instantly.

Dangriga Murder Out Of Nowhere
And there was a shocking broad daylight execution style murder in Dangriga Town today. It happened around 10:30 when 55 year old Patrick George Crossdale was ambushed as he rode his motorbike towards his home. A man jumped out of the bushes near the monument site and fired 5 shots at him. Two of them caught Crosdale - who was rushed to the hospital and succumbed to his injuries while undergoing treatment. Crosdale is a Jamaican who had been living in Dangriga for some time.

Bullet Grazes Man’s Head In City
And there was almost a murder in Belize City this afternoon. According to reports, a 21 year man was targeted on Holy Emmanuel Street, near the Chetumal Boulevard. Reports to 7News are that some time around 2:30, 21 year-old Samuel Neal, a labourer from Sand Hill Village, was conducting work near 2 and a half miles on the George Price Highway on the road side. That's reportedly when a dark-skinned man approached him, pulled out a gun and fired several shots in his direction.

Belizean Fisherman Imprisoned in Guatemala For Lobster
Last week, we told you about the Belizean fisherman, Iginio Canto Bacab, who was intercepted by the Guatemalan Navy. He was in the company of 2 Guatemalan nationals and the authorities there say that the trio were trying to smuggle out-of-season lobster into Guatemala. Well, we've since learned that all 3 men were charged for being in possession of 216 pounds of whole lobster, 20 pounds of lobster tails, and 80 pounds of the queen conch, which are all out of season according to SICA fishing regulations. We're also informed that the boat they were caught in is licensed in Belize, with the plate number TOL-035.

Barranco Villagers Want Their Forestry Resource
Last week Thursday, we told you about the disgruntled Barranco residents. 5 residents applied for logging licenses and their applications were rejected while an outsider, someone from Boom Creek, was granted his license to log in the Barranco forest area. Well, a handful of Barranco residents took their grievances to Belmopan today where they protested outside the National Assembly building, and also met with the Chief Forestry officer. Courtney Weatherburne has more. Under the mid-morning sun, a choir of Barranco residents circled the assembly building…. then the Prime Minister's office. Hoping that the solid beat of their drums over ancestral songs will get their message across - a message of community. But the livelihood of that community is under threat.

The Mystery of Mendoza’s Accident
Last night, we told you about 50 year-old Gerardo Mendoza, the Orange Walk resident who is in a critical condition at the KHMH getting into some kind of a traffic accident. His family says that he was knocked down by a hit-and-run driver, but police believe that he fell out of the back of a pick-up truck. The cops have released the official version which says that on Friday, April 20, at around 6:45 p.m., officers from Orange Walk Town responded to a traffic accident at the Guinea Grass Road junction with the Phillip Goldson Highway. That's where they found Mendoza suffering from severe head and bodily injuries.

Alleged Killer Free On Nolle Pros
After spending 6 years in prison on remand, 28 year-old Allan Sommerville, a resident of Hattieville, was told today that he could go home. The DPP's Office has indicated that they no longer want to prosecute him at this time for the April 2012 murder of 32 year-old Eleno Requena. As we reported, Requena was on the shoulder of the Cornel English Bridge in Hattieville at around 8:00 on the night of April 9, 2012. He had a 10 year-old boy on his back, and they were both walking home. That's when a man dressed in dark clothing came up close to Requena and shot him in the midsection. He died on the spot, and the 10 year-old boy was injured to the left foot.

Cuba and Belize Talk Fisheries
Today the Cuban and Belizean authorities came together for an exchange. It was not an exchange of money or a scholarship from the Cubans instead it was an exchange of information. The Fisheries department from Belize and Cuba met today to exchange knowledge on different aspects of our similar marine lives and the threats to it. We found out more this morning from the experts. Daniel Whittle, Senior Director- Cuba Oceans Program: "My organization EDF works to hand overfishing and preserve Marine Ecosystems that fish depend upon. Belize and Cuba are two of the most important places in the Caribbean in terms of biodiversity fisheries. For environmental reasons and benefits but also for socio-economic benefits for the people. Fishing communities in Belize depend upon healthy marine resources and likewise in Cuba and so we are here to share lessons, get together and to see what works and does not work."

Ambassador Promises Cuban Continuity
The Ambassador also discussed her a new president. For the first time in more than half a decade the president of Cuba is not a Castro. His name is Miguel Diaz Canel - and he took over form Raul Castro last week Friday. But with the new president will things change in Cuba? Well according to the Ambassador, the ideals of the revolution will continue: Lisette Perez, Cuban Ambassador to Belize: "We have a new president. His name is Miguel Diaz Canal. This is a man that was born after the revolution. He, of course, will take over from Fidel and Raul. It means that the Cuba revolution will not break anything. We will continue our legacy. The social program that we built for the people, trying to build a better society. We can assure security for all we can assure the health services for all, we assure the free education for all. This our ideals."

Village Fire Claims Three Structures
Yesterday afternoon three homes were burnt down in the Village of San Jose in the Toledo District. According to PGTV, the houses belonged to Wilfredo Coc and his son Venusiano Coc who lived in the three structures with their five children. The fire is believed to have started inadvertently by neighbours who were burning garbage. Wind carried the flames onto Coc's property - and there was no stopping the blaze which quickly burned out of control.

“Harlem” Held Up In Griga
Minutes before 9:00 last night, three masked men tried to rob the Harlem Store in Dangriga. Today, reports say the police were able to detain two of the three men involved.

Family Says Loved One Held For More Than 48
Earlier today we told you about the West Canal man charged for the murder of Albert Johnson on Saturday night in Belize City. Others are detained pending charges - but this evening, the sister of one of the detained came to our newsroom to say her brother has been detained too long without a charge. She asked to appear off camera: Voice of: Sister of one of the detainee: "He was detained Saturday night at the Queen Street police station. When we went back there they told us that he wasn't there, so they sent us to Raccoon Street. We went to Raccoon Street, he wasn't there. No one told us that he was in Ladyville until Sunday Evening we heard that he was at Ladyville..."

Uno Robber In Cayo Caught On Camera
Cayo police are looking to charge a man from George Street in Belize City for the robbery of a gas station yesterday. It happened at 10:00 AM at the UNO gas station in San Ignacio yesterday.

Cayo police are doing an ID parade tonight. The only complication - we are told - is that their main suspect is one of a pair of identical twins.

Hoop Dreams
A team of young Belizean basketball players left Belize today for Cleveland, Ohio. That's where they will participate in the "Dru Joyce Classic" Youth Basketball Tournament. Formerly known as the King James Tournament, now, it is known as the Dru Joyce Classic. It's still the same tournament where athletes under the age of 18 years compete against each other by NCAA rules. The Belizean team is going there for its chance at glory, sure, but the more important objective is to put their basketball talents on display, in the hopes of catching the attention of the basketball coaches, scouting for talent for their college basketball teams.

Meat pie king, Dario Hernandez, passes at 79
Over the years, Dario’s meat pies have become a beloved part of Belize City’s lunchtime cuisine. Dario Hernandez, 79, has been selling his signature meat pies for over 35 years. Unfortunately, on Saturday, April 21, Hernandez passed away at 8:45 p.m. He had apparently been suffering from stage 4 type 7 cancer since last September. Brent Hernandez, Dario’s son, told Amandala that his father had a humble beginning, leaving Holy Redeemer Primary School after only completing standard three, and starting to sell pastries that his mother would bake in their home at #2 Cards Alley. In the late 1940’s, he would ride his bicycle through the streets, selling pastries such as honeybun, Spanish cake, and polvoròn.

They ran across the highway, into the Lord Ridge Cemetery. Two policemen on the scene attempted to set chase, but the overweight cops were no match for the young men, who out-ran them.

Brian Hyde, 22, found guilty in US court of slaughtering family
On Friday, April 20, a jury found Belizean Brian Hyde, 22, guilty of killing his aunt, Dorla Pitts, 37; his cousin, Starlette Pitts, 17; her boyfriend, Michael Kelly, and their unborn child. The trial lasted five days. According to News-Press, Hyde had testified that he had no memory of killing his family, and that he had previously suffered a similar traumatic incident in Belize, in which many of his family members had died. The defense argued that Hyde’s inability to remember finding his family murdered could be attributed to the trauma he suffered from that previous incident.

$50,000/5-year sentence stipulated for the media
At the time the government presented the 2018-19 budget, it also came up with a raft of new legislation, and among them was the 2018 Amendment to the Crime Control and Criminal Justice Amendment Act, which prescribed a new regimen of very stiff penalties for persons who are affiliated with or belong to criminal gangs, or who harbor and assist gang members. Recently, the Caribbean Court of Justice, (CCJ) made a ruling in the criminal appeal of convicted murderer Gregory August, who was serving a life sentence. The ruling upheld a Court of Appeal decision which found that a life in prison sentence without the possibility of parole was unconstitutional. August’s life sentence was therefore replaced with a 30-year in prison sentence.

Barranco villagers prepared “to fight government” over logging rights
It is not only the Maya who have been contending with Government over land and human rights; residents of the Toledo District’s Barranco village have also, among other gripes, been angered by the Forestry Department’s decision to reject their requests for logging licenses, even though the department has reportedly granted licenses to entities the villagers consider undeserving. The residents plan to express their displeasure through a protest which is scheduled to take place tomorrow, Tuesday, in Belmopan, which is when Cabinet meets.

PUP announces free education policy
The Opposition People’s United Party (PUP), bolstered by its gains in last month’s municipal elections and the narrowing of the margins in some key constituencies, has begun mobilizing its supporters for constituency conventions across the country. Today, Sunday, hundreds of supporters from the Toledo East and Toledo West were bused into San Antonio for an endorsement convention for their two sitting area representatives, Hon. Mike Espat and Hon. Oscar Requeña; and yesterday, Saturday, hundreds of the party’s Stann Creek West constituency supporters gathered in Hopkins Village for the endorsement of their sitting area representative, Hon. Rodwell Ferguson, for the next general elections, scheduled to be held in 2020.

PLB semifinals drama; top seeds shaken up in 1st leg
Both top seeds in the Premier League of Belize (PLB) 2017-2018 Closing Season were rattled over the weekend in the 1st leg of the home-and-away semifinals. #1 seed Belmopan Bandits SC barely pulled out a 2-2 draw in injury time against #4 seed Police United FC; and #2 seed defending champion Verdes FC was shocked, 2-nil, by #3 seed BDF FC. It’s what the playoffs are all about! A ticket to the “Big Dance” Finals is on the line for all 4 teams in the 2nd leg of the PLB semifinals this weekend:

Charger sub-keeper, Norman “Maniprat” Humes, passes
You know you are in the veteran stage of life when you are with increasing regularity shaken up with the news of one of your former football colleagues making that final transition. A couple weeks ago I was informed that veteran great goalie, some say he was the best ever, Wilfred “Palmer” Davis was in hospital in Chicago, after suffering a heart attack. A super star from the sixties, Palmer was our captain/sweeper one year with Charger in the mid-70s. Just this evening, I understand that my mid-80s goalkeeper on Milpros, Wayne “Bom” Jones is back in hospital at the KHMH, and he is very weak. Other teammates are encouraged to give him a shout, as it lifts his spirit.

NAWL Week 2 results
The National Amateur Women’s League (NAWL) completed Week 2 of its home-and-away round-robin regular season this past weekend. The 8-team competition is divided into two zones, North and South. In the South Zone on Saturday, April 21, at the Carl Ramos Stadium, home standing Dangriga Pumas had to come from behind to secure a 1-1 stalemate with visiting Sagitun from Independence. Sabrina Eiley (27’ PK) gave Sagitun the lead from the penalty spot; but Dorita Ramos equalized at the 80th minute for Pumas.

Pedal by Pedal – Chief’s Saturday Race – April 21
Thirty-one riders lined up today for Chief’s Saturday Race, which started at 7:15 a.m. from Leslie’s to Boom Village Junction and back to Old Belize, for 38 miles. These were made up of 21 Elites, 9 Weekend Warriors, and Tevin Chaplin as the solitary Junior. Despite having only 21 Elites, though, ALL the brand names were here, including Giovanni Lovell and Oscar Quiroz, fresh from the Commonwealth Games in Australia, and they seemed hungry. Right out of the blocks, a 6-man break formed, including Ernest “Peenie” Bradley and Greg Lovell of Digicell. At Bardon Creek Bridge, just 4 miles into the race, the chase was on in earnest by the “Heads of State” leaving bodies scattered all over the road. By the time we got to the Central Prison, only 5 Weekend Warriors remained; but the Big Boys now had the front runners in their gunsights, and the pace jumped from 28 to 32 m.p.h.

Editorial: Morazán, Carrera, Walker, and the 1859 Treaty
Francisco Morazán (1792-1842) was president of the Federal Republic of Central America from 1830 to 1839. Before he was president of Central America, he was the head of the state of Honduras. He rose to prominence in the Battle of La Trinidad on November 11, 1827. Morazán then dominated the political and military scene of Central America until his execution in 1842. In the political arena, Francisco Morazán was recognized as a visionary and great thinker, as he attempted to transform Central America into one large and progressive nation. He enacted liberal reforms in the new Federal Republic of Central America, including freedom of the press, freedom of speech, and freedom of religion. Morazán also limited church power by making marriage secular and abolishing government-aided tithing.

Dear Editor: This is the British response to Guatemala’s referendum vote to go to the ICJ, yes the same British that caused this mess with Guatemala in the first place: 1. “The United Kingdom has welcomed the result of April 15 referendum on taking Guatemala’s territorial, maritime and insular dispute with Belize to the International Court of Justice in The Hague. We also congratulate the people of Guatemala for participating and demonstrating their commitment to democratic values. Through debate, discussion and deliberations, they confirmed that the ICJ route is the best way to resolve any differences. The British Government supports this process as the route agreed upon jointly by Guatemala and Belize”, said UK ambassador to Guatemala Carolyn Davidson.

The moment M of G cannot seize
There is something fascinating to people about the number “three.” Horse race aficionados drool over the trifecta. There is a big bonus, a whopper of a prize, if you can pick the first three places in a horse race, in order. Ball teams feel they have accomplished something special if they win three championships in a row. If you like baseball and softball, you get all of three strikes before you make an out. If you’re feeling religious, there is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. The Christ could have jumped off the cross, but He waited three days. We know the lengths Dean Barrow (Master of the Games (M of G)) went to, to win three elections in a row. We’ll not discuss how he rolled out the PetroCaribe, like Henry money kud a neva done. We are told that results, bottom line, is what counts in politics. Those results left a sweet taste in the mouths of all things UDP, and a sour one in the mouths of all things PUP. But they, the PUP, can find gratification in the way he is suffering now.

Referendum to go to the ICJ – think it through!
“The hardest lesson I learnt at law school is that law and court is not about truth; it’s about who can present the best evidence!” – Audrey Matura, 2005. I finished my legal studies in 2005 and when asked about it, I had to tell a friend that of all the things I learnt from all the books and lessons and exercise was that going to court does not mean the truth will prevail. As I began to practice before the courts I believed this even more and today, after thirteen years as an attorney, I am even more convinced by this. I have had cases with the seemingly strongest evidence collapse before the court, and I have seen cases that look tenuous or even weak succeed when I least expected it. This week alone while doing my cases I had two cases that seemed so strong against my client fall to naught.

BELIZEAN STANISLAUS
What hypocrisy. What monumental HYPOCRISY! To equate Mayor Wagner’s naivete in handling $500 of public funds with the historic UDP corruption is laughable! I scoff at the UDP humongous expression of silliness, and am angered by the stupid insult to our intelligence. My dear UDP Propagandist, your piece about newly elected Mayor Wagner focused our justifiable anger as we recalled how Jesus Christ, the greatest moralist who ever lived, condemned the hypocrisy of the Scribes and Pharisees of his time. He said: you hypocrites, brood of vipers, before you point to the speck in your brother’s eye take out the beam in your own first.

Two men charged with theft of $10,000 from Heritage Bank
Two men, Damon Dawson, 24, and Jonathan Almendarez, 21, were charged with theft when they appeared today before Chief Magistrate Sharon Fraser. Almendarez was also charged with handling stolen goods. The prosecutor objected to bail being granted to the men on the ground that the investigation is still ongoing and most of the stolen money has not been recovered. The prosecutor also objected on the ground that other charges are to be filed against Dawson and Almendarez.

Student, 25, dies after crashing into house being transported
Daniel Urbina, 25, a student of San Jose Palmar, Orange Walk District, was driving his Toyota pickup from Belize City to Orange Walk at about 3:00 Saturday morning, when, on arriving at Mile 41 on the Philip Goldson Highway, he crashed into the side of a timber house that was being carried on a flatbed truck from Orange Walk to Belize City. Information to us is that Urbina suffered massive head and body injuries; the left side of his pickup was extensively damaged, and he died immediately on the scene.

Hit-and-run victim, 26, succumbs after 9 days
Christian Charles, 26, of Burrell Boom, died last night at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) while receiving treatment for massive head and body injuries he suffered after he was knocked down by a hit-and-run driver sometime on the morning of Saturday, April 14, while he was walking on the Burrell Boom road near the bridge. Charles was found injured and bleeding at about 3:00 that Saturday morning, and was rushed to the KHMH that morning, where he was admitted in a critical condition and taken to the Intensive Care Unit.

Tourist falls fifteen feet at Xunantunich
On Wednesday, April 18, at around 4:30 p.m., a tourist was at the Xunantunich archaeological site when she fell off the temple’s A-6 structure. Cindy Vanhoff, 59, was climbing down the stairs of the temple when she lost her footing and fell fifteen feet to the ground. BERT ambulances arrived 50 minutes after the accident, and Vanhoff was transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital. The extent of her injuries is unknown, but sources say she was able to talk. A National Institute of Culture and History (NICH) representative stated that they “advise all visitors to archaeological reserves to please exercise caution while climbing structures and to please climb only where allowed.”

Bureau of Standards announces recall of fuel price hike
The Bureau of Standards, a few minutes ago, announced that the Ministry of Finance has recalled the price increases for fuel which the Bureau had announced earlier today. In a Facebook post less than an hour ago, the Bureau apologized for inconveniences caused by the announcement of the fuel price increases. Those increases were for Regular and Diesel fuel, and the increases would have taken effect at midnight tonight. It had Diesel taking a 69-cent leap to $10.70, and Regular going up by 41 cents to $11.06.

Testing Out of the Newly Graded Roads North and West
Beyond the paved road (which ends at 3.5 miles north), we have a hard-core, unpaved road that was finalized about 4 years ago. Using rock and white marl (from the quarry on the island at about 9 miles north) – the road is perfect for golf cart traffic but degrades (holes and pits) with the heavy dump truck traffic that comes down from the quarry. And the road out to Secret Beach has been smoothed – it was graded about half way out to the west side of the island. I’m not sure if they are going to complete the job – extend it all the way out to Secret Beach but I also drove out there to enjoy it.

M is for marvelous Maruba Beach Klub at Secret Beach
With a full access road, the not-so-secret beach is the ultimate playground for fun in the sun. New to the scene, and perfectly complimenting the area with their signature eclectic ethno-vibe, is Maruba Beach Klub. If the Maruba name sounds familiar, it should! This new beach klub is the brainchild of the super creative and fun sisters Alexandra and Franziska Nicholson from the renowned Maruba Resort Jungle Spa in Maskall Village in the Belize District and Kama Lounge (now closed) here in San Pedro. Replete with their flare for bright colors, bold patterns, lots of lounging space and flowing sheers, the stage is set with groovy techno beats pulsating in the background. Located 6.5 miles north of San Pedro Town, the hour drive via golf cart is a scenic look at stunning reef views to the east and lush mangrove lagoons to the west. Wildlife such as birds, iguanas, and even crocodiles can be spotted along the way, and there are plenty of restaurants and bars to stop at if you get thirsty or hungry. For those us of who may not have the time to travel by road, or just want to get to Maruba Beach Klub ASAP they offer a boat shuttle (for a small fee) by reservation from town, which is a brilliant idea!

Random Comments and Delicious Treats
I love it when a random Facebook post ends up problem-solving on a totally unrelated topic. This time it was via my tinder super likes star pic post that quickly got facked (tacogirl.com word #2 in Urban Dictionary). The post in question is also a good example of how all conversations generally revert to food sex or bodily functions… not necessarily in that order. This one moved fast from getting busy because I had 3 super likes on tinder in 24 hours to no potential for “fun” and onto one of my other loves – food. More specifically the conversation turned to one of my favorite occasional shopping options – The Truck Stop Farmers Market. This led to not only salivating over the possibilities but also scoring a few ride offers.

Legal but illogical reasoning from the chief justice of Belize?
How does a law stigmatise any person “as being a criminal” even if one is engaged in unlawful conduct, unless that person is convicted of such offence in court? Based on this sloppy line of reasoning everybody could claim to be stigmatised “as being a criminal” simply by the existence of laws that proscribe certain behaviours without ever having been arrested and convicted in court for said breach of the law. The chief justice relied on a constitutional challenge to South Africa's common law prohibition on sodomy vis-à-vis dignity and cited a dictum from Ackerman, J which says in part:

Quickly fading La Niña delays onset of wet season in the C'bean
The Barbados-based Caribbean Institute for Meteorology and Hydrology (CIMH) says the onset of the wet season may be delayed by a few weeks in much of the Caribbean region. “By contrast, The Bahamas, Cuba, and French Guiana might be wetter than usual, with extreme wet spells being a potential concern for flooding and flash floods,” CIMH said, blaming a “quickly fading La Niña” which is associated with cooler-than-average sea surface temperatures, for the situation. In its latest Caribbean Climate Outlook Forum (CariCOF) outlooks for the period May to October this year, released Tuesday, the CIMH said heat discomfort, surface wetness and large water reservoir recharge rates related to wet spells may show a slower increase than usual. “However, dry spells and episodes of Saharan dust incursion may be frequent in Belize and the islands,” it added.

British Citizen One Day, Illegal Immigrant the Next
Renford McIntyre was just a child when he left Jamaica to join his parents in Britain. He spent the next 50 years here, working various jobs and paying taxes. Like tens of thousands of people from families encouraged to come from British colonies in the Caribbean to help rebuild postwar Britain, he had always assumed that he was a full-fledged British citizen. Until, that is, the government decided he wasn’t. At the age of 60, he was declared an illegal immigrant. He lost his job. He could no longer apply for benefits. He became homeless. “I’ve lost out on everything,” said Mr. McIntyre, who is now 64. The issue has simmered in Britain since Theresa May was home secretary and set out to create a “really hostile environment” for illegal immigrants, imposing tough new requirements in 2012 for people to prove their legal status.

Guatemala sends special forces to border with Belize
Barely one week after the national referendum “Yes” vote to approve the government of Guatemala going to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to adjudicate the long standing territorial dispute with Belize (formerly British Honduras), the Kaibiles, the Guatemalan Special Forces, have been sent to the border area between the two countries in an apparent attempt to solidify Guatemalan claims over the disputed territory. This also comes days after the announcement by Guatemalan president, Jimmy Morales, that Guatemala is enforcing strict protection of its claimed sovereignty of the disputed Sarstoon River. On April 21, the Guatemala military posted pictures on its Twitter account showing navy engineers preparing to move materials, purportedly to the Sarstoon.
