The Reknown Blake Family
The Blake Family is synonymous with the owners of the entire island of Ambergris Caye and therefore San Pedro. So here goes this chronicle to honor this great family thanks to whom we all here today. The Blakes left their marks in San Pedro and footprints in the lives of San Pedranos.
The first in the Blake dynasty was well known and esteemed in San Pedro was James Humes Blake. He was a wealīthy British magistrate stationed in Corozal where he owned lots of property. It was he who learned that the entire island of Ambergris Caye was being sold in an auction. Being in the courts, he was privy to this information and he made his bid to purchase. Consequently on September 13, 1869, Mr. James Blake became the sole owner of the entire island of Ambergris Caye for $625.00 considered a pittance even by standards of those days.

Big Baby In Big Problems
Belizean - American Jarrell Big Baby Miller - he should be training for the world heavyweight title fight on June first against champion Anthony Joshua. But, tonight, the biggest fight of his career is in limbo. ESPN yesterday reported that Miller, quote, "has tested positive for the banned substance GW1516The test results, which came to light on Tuesday, were from a random Voluntary Anti-Doping Association-conducted urine test Miller submitted to on March 20." End quote.
The fight promoter and Joshua's agent, Eddie Hearn, is quoted as saying,
"We have been informed by VADA that there has been an adverse finding in Jarrell Miller's sample collected on March 20th, 2019 (Joshua's) preparation continues for June 1st at MSG."
Rose Lane Family of 7 Homeless After Fire
The life of a family in the St. Martin's area was turned upside down after a fire torched their homes. It happened last night around 10:30 on Rose Lane. There are two houses in the yard and the family of 7 lost everything. Courtney Weatherburne has the story.
61 year old Stella B and her husband were relaxing in bed when her neighbors alerted them to the fire.
Stella B, Fire Victim:
"I was upstairs then my neighbor son hollered out for me and my gentleman and I came downstairs..."
Fire Likely Started By Circuit
The fire department's investigation is also showing so far that it may be an overload on the shared electrical circuit. The station chief at the national fire service told us more about this case and about the dangers of getting electricity from a secondary source.
Orin Smith,,Station Chief, National Fire Service:
"The national fire service received reports of a structural fire on Rose Lane Belize City, two units were dispatched to that location on arrival on scene at number 2575 Rose Lane found were two structures on a property, two wooden structure, the structure on the rear was seen fully engulfed in flames. The structure at the front had the north section engulfed in flames."
Toilet Paper Repellent?
And there was another fire last night on Partridge Street, about two blocks away from the Rose Lane blaze. The police report says that home owner 22 year old Barber Keyshawn Young lit some toilet paper on fire in his room as a mosquito repellent and went to sleep. Later on he discovered his house was on fire. It is unclear why he did that or how he came up with that idea but this is surely a lesson on what NOT EVER to do in your home.
Belizean Held in Bacalar For Knocking Down Jaguar
A Belizean couple and their two kids were arrested in Mexico last night at 9:00. Corozal pilot Efrain Guerrero and his pregnant Mexican wife Tanisha Morales were coming down from Cancun by road, and entering Bacalar they ran over an animal in the road. It turned out to be a jaguar - and that got them into a major problems with the law. They held Guerrero in custody and his wife told a Mexican media house what happened - and why his detention is unjust:
PSU Braces Chief Elections Officer
On Monday's news, we told you about the dispute coming out of the Elections and Boundaries Department. That's where the registering officer, Jerrylyn Bruce is accusing Chief Elections Officer Josephine Tamai of victimization, because she refused to include an eligible elector on the voter's list.
Bruce has asserted that this elector, Trevor Bradley, failed to produce his documents proving his Belizean Citizenship, so that he could be re-registered in time for the deadline. Tamai has made a counter accusation that Bruce's handling of Bradley's application threatened to unfairly disenfranchise him as a legitimate voter.
PUP to Court on A Holy Thursday?
When is Belize going to have its ICJ referendum? If the Government has its way, it would take place - possibly within a month since the new Territorial Referendum law is now in place.
But, if the Opposition PUP has its way, the referendum will be further postponed. They still have their lawsuit in the Supreme Court against the 2008 Special Agreement, and their claim remains unresolved. The next time that Chief Justice Kenneth Benjamin will hear the case is on Monday, April 29th. On that date, he is expected to carry out a case management conference on the lawsuit. He will also hear the Government's application to set aside the injunction he granted to the PUP, which caused the April 10th referendum to be postponed in the first place.
A Valid Compliant About Vital Stats?
And while the court battle over the referendum is one thing - the ongoing back and forth over inefficiencies at the Vital Stats Unit has been another.
As we showed you, Business Senator Mark Lizarraga and UDP Senator Michael Peyrefitte got into a testy exchange in the senate meeting when Lizarraga criticized the department for having people's records in a disarray.
Well, while that back and forth on the efficiencies or lack thereof at the department can go on, there are Belizeans who have first hand bad experiences dealing with the office staff.
After Years on Remand For Murder, Senior Citizen Gets Bail
He's been in prison 6 years awaiting trial for murder, but tonight, 65 year-old Marciano Correa, a cane cutter from Libertad Village in Corozal, is out on bail.
Correa was charged with the April 2013 murder of 43 year-old Sisto Victorio Osorio. He was struck on the head with a blunt instrument, and his body was found facedown on a pavement in the village. It was believed at the time that Osorio was killed as a consequence of a some sort of family dispute.
Critical After Crooked Tree Beatdown
19 year-old Ravin Gillett, a fisherman from Crooked Tree Village, is at the Belize Central Prison tonight after he was taken to court for allegedly joining several men who ganged up on another resident and put a bad beating on him.
The incident happened on Sunday April 7th, 2019 in Crooked Tree. Elton Baiza was socializing in the village when he was attacked by a group of persons who beat him up badly, and left him severely injured. He was rushed to the KHMH by a concerned civilian, and court reports say that he is in a critical condition.
Mentally Ill Man Missing
A man living with a mental illness is missing and his family is worried about his safety. 20 year old Cotton Tree resident Edgar Sanabria left his family's house on Monday April 15th and has not returned home. All his relatives were at work that day, except for one family member who saw him leave the house but she thought he was just going for a short walk. That wasn't the case. Residents say they saw him get on a bus that day heading to Belize City. We spoke to a relative this evening and he said someone called him today saying Sanabria was spotted in San Pedro so the family is heading there tomorrow to look for him.
CITCO Tests First Responders
This morning at around 10:00, it looked like some kind of war zone, or a mass casualty event at the intersection of Neal Penn Road and Central American Boulevard in Belize City. Police, the Fire Department, BERT Ambulance teams, and other emergency personnel converged on the area for about an hour.
They commandeered that part of the City to carry out a simulation exercise to test the readiness response of these key agencies. The reaction times of these organizations could mean the difference between life and death for accident or shooting victims, and so, the Belize City Council wanted to be certain that they are ready for the road.
Tried To Pay Debt, Got Robbed and Shot
Tonight, 21 year-old Harry Stanley Montero, a fisherman from Hope Creek Village in the Stann Creek District is recovering from a gunshot injury to the leg. He told the cops he was attempting to pay a man some money that he owed, and because the man wasn't satisfied, that person shot him, and then robbed him of jewelry and cash.
Man Critical After Being Stabbed in Chest
This afternoon 41 year-old Delbert Quilter, a resident of Belize City in a critical condition at the KHMH. That's after he was stabbed in the chest just after midnight.
The cops don't know much about the incident at this time, but their initial investigation suggests that at around 12:20 a.m. Quilter and another man got into some sort of argument, when this man stabbed him in the chest.
How To Prevent Fires During Easter
Many Belizeans like teachers and students are already on their Easter break while others are preparing for their Easter weekend getaway. Well, before you think about leaving the house, ensure that you make a list and cross check all appliances you need to unplug and discuss your travel plans with neighbours you trust that are staying behind. Those are a few of several tips that Fire service chief Orin Smith gave today at a briefing. Here's more.
"A number of persons are expected to be travelling over this holiday season, as they usually do. And one of the cautions we reach out to them with is unplug every electrical equipment or appliance that is not necessary to be plugged in..."
Restaurant Robbers Craved Fried Chicken
Last night, a pair of thieves robbed a restaurant in Cayo - and even ended up stealing four fried chickens and a Coke!
It happened at 8:45 at Lighthouse Restaurant on Border Road. The Chinese proprietor reported that two men stormed in with guns and demanded money. They escaped with an undisclosed amount of cash, four fried birds and a Coke. We note that there's no offense on the books for eating stolen goods.

Editorial – Easter 2019
It is impossible to over-estimate the impact of Christianity on the race of humans whom God created and then redeemed through the life and death of His Son, Jesus.
When you consider the Old Testament account of how God destroyed the people living at the time of Noah with a giant flood, you reach the conclusion that in God’s eyes they were not worth saving.

Belize Has Brown Eggs: Dying Them For Easter
I don’t spend much time thinking about eggs…but yesterday, when I bought a dozen brown eggs to dye for Easter…two things struck me.
ALL eggs sold in Belize are brown. Unless they are “local eggs” – meaning they are from someone’s chicken coop – then they can be all sorts of magical egg colors. Here are some that a lady gave me a few months back. Hens that lay easter eggs! BUT I did dye easter eggs yesterday because that’s what we always did when I was little. Just BECAUSE.
In the Trees Writer’s Retreat, Benque Viejo
A regular reader once told me you can’t be Hemingway every day. I considered it very wise advice, and I tempered it with always refining my craft and developing a clear writing voice.
When host, Virginia emailed me asking if I wanted to attend a writers retreat in Benque, I was all over it. The retreat was a collaboration between Ixcanan A Meeting Space and Wildfire Artzmosphere based in San Ignacio.
I was excited to meet other writers and spend time actively working on my style. Of course, I signed my temporary roommate Heather up for the ride – I didn’t have to twist her arm too hard. While she is not currently a writer, she journals often.
According to a police report, Keyshawn Young, 22, lit some toilet paper in his room as a repellent and went to sleep.

Entering Giant Cave Belize while it’s Siphoning, 4min. Giant Cave is possibly the largest sea cave on the planet! It's located just off a dock in Caye Caulker Belize. The cave can spring and siphon and little is known about timing it. This was my 3rd trip to the cave and the first two times it was springing slightly and this trip it was siphoning enough to suck you in. The video is shot with a Paralenz dive camera of Becky Schott entering the fissure crack and first chamber on a Liberty Sidemount rebreather, then buddy Anthony Tedeschi going through the 100ft of restriction on his KISS Sidekick. This is just a teaser video, once inside the cave the visibility is more than 50-70ft in most areas and some of the largest rooms and decorations can be seen. There are sponges, tunicates and life a few hundred feet inside the cave. It's a really unique system. If you're interested in diving it or learning more contact Belize Diving Services.
