Wolfe’s Woofer: Fruits and Vegetables
“Did you try Mr. Francisco’s vegetable store?” I asked. “He always has the ones that are hard to get.”
“I’m not driving that far just for your avocados,” Sherry said. “If you want them that bad, drive yourself.”
“Don Franco, where are your watermelons?” the lady ahead of me in line at Francisco’s asked.
“Watermelon season starts in about two weeks seńora,” Francisco said. “In two weeks, we got plenty melons.”
I could see into the back room where one watermelon sat on a table with a dozen avocados.
Doctor Love: Not the Mama
Dear Doctor Love,
I am a grown woman, married with three teen kids, and I am very happy with one exception—I don’t feel any deep emotional connection to my mother. I didn’t grow up with her due to my parent's divorce when I was a baby. I didn’t even meet until I was fourteen, and I’ve not seen her since I was twenty, except on social media. There, her need to shower affection on me publicly has become an almost daily occurrence, and it has become overwhelming and difficult. I dread seeing her comment on something I say online.

CXC To Consider Petition Calling for Re-sitting of 2019 CSEC Math
Perhaps the most serious breach of an exam in the history of the Caribbean Exams Council (CXC) occurred last week when students sat Paper II of the 2019 CSEC Mathematics exam. It was discovered shortly thereafter that there was a breach in security in Trinidad and Tobago (T&T), which has led to three invigilators being fired, and since then well over 5,000 people across the Caribbean have signed a petition on Facebook, lobbying for the exams to be re-administered; but the incident has no bearing on Belize, neither in the results for our students nor as far as the petition is concerned.
