Exciting and Reignited: International Costa Maya Festival rocks La Isla Bonita!
The biggest festival in Belize, the International Costa Maya Festival: Reignited, began on Friday, July 26th at the Honorable Louis Sylvestre Sporting Complex with the Reina de la Costa Maya pageant. Taking the coveted 2019 title of Reina de la Costa Maya was Lisbeth Valverde Brenes of Costa Rica! After an elegant show of beauty, glamour, and culture onstage, Valverde Brenes managed to charm the judges and crowd, walking away with the crown. The big draw for the second night of the Costa Maya Festival was certainly the much-anticipated performance by songstress Becky G. Before she could come onstage to rock her fans’ world however, the stage was the venue for some Belizean superstars, including TR Shine, Marlyn Vansen, and the punta rock king himself, Supa G!

Commercial Fishermen Leading Ban Gillnet Movement In Belize
Commercial fishermen are leading the movement to ban gillnets in Belize. They recognize that gillnets have led to major declines in their fish stocks and they are concerned about the future of their fishery and their livelihoods. Of more than 2,500 licensed fishermen in Belize, only 83 are currently licensed as gillnet fishermen based on the official report provided by the Fisheries Department. “As Director of the Belize Federation of Fishers, I can state that this ban is the top priority for our members. Banning gillnets throughout Belizean waters is very important to our fishermen because gillnets represent an outdated and indiscriminate fishing method which threatens the health of our fish stocks,” said Nigel Martinez.

Mr. Saul Garcia passes away
Mr. Saul Garcia, who many of the students who have visited with us know, died today. It was not unexpected, he was old, and had been put into hospital the other day, but it is a very sad moment for us. Mr Saul was a great neighbor, always full of information and generous with his plants, and we have brought many hundreds of people through his farm. Mr. Sauls farm is the single most biologically diverse farm I have ever seen, with hundreds of species and multiple cultivars of most of those species. Well before "permaculture" was a word, Mr Saul was planting the seeds of what would be a very complex multistrata agroforestry system, a model that is unequaled in diversity and food security, which inspired much of our work. His land was very challenging, marginally steep, with a large ravine and a north facing slope, and yet, in a 25 meter by 25 meter area, we counted 22 species useful to Mr. Saul, not including the cacao, of which there were four distinct cultivars.

Woman Murdered By Jealous Ex In Griga
It was a terrible and traumatic weekend in Belize - where 7 relatively young people lost their lives abruptly. Two 22 year old's, a 21 year old, and an 18 year old were killed in a single traffic accident. And then, a 26 year old was killed in a construction accident. And then, a 31 year old died while trying out for the coast guard. And, a 41 year old woman was murdered in a domestic dispute. And that's where we start tonight - in Dangriga.

Murder Suspect On The Run Has History of Violence
Now the ex-common law husband has a history of violence. According to Flowers' relatives, he has threatened to kill her several times and has even pulled a gun on her sisters and other relatives. He had been charged with aggravated assault with a firearm. Today at the morgue, we spoke to Flowers' sister and she gave more insight into their abusive relationship including a harrowing incident that happened just a couple days ago. We also spoke to Flowers' 18 year old daughter about the tragic loss of yet another parent.

Quadruple Road Fatality Leaves 4 Young Men Dead
And from that violent domestic dispute which ended in murder, we turn now to the weekend's other traumatic event. It was a fatal accident in the Ladyville area which left 4 Belize City men dead, and another recovering from serious injuries. It happened between miles 6 and 7 on the Philip Goldson Highway. 4 of the 5 occupants of a white Toyota Camry died when it slammed into a lamppost and snapped the car completely into 2. Our news team has closely been following the story, and Daniel Ortiz reports:

Father of Three Drowns In Coast Guard Tryout
On Saturday morning, 31 year old Brigel Teck from Libertad Village was one of the 360 hopefuls who showed up at the Coast Guard headquarters in Belize to tryout. He was over the age limit - and he had tried before and failed - but Teck was still hopeful. And he had reason to be, because he could swim - while many of the other hopefuls could not. That's why he was called up from the final reserve list after very many applicants had failed. And he completed the swim test, but, then, something unexpected happened. The Vice commander of the Coast Guard told us more:...

Family Says Teck Was Fit
Today in Libertad, Teck's niece spoke to CTV-3 about his physical health, and his zeal to join the Coast Guard. She said he had no known pre-existing conditions. Reporter: "As far as the family knows, was he sick, did he have a medical condition?" Shanique Neal- Brigel Teck's Niece: "No, he have no major sicknesses. He has always been vibrant determined, energetic, he has always been playing sports. Until now, he was in a league. He was to play the night and the morning we heard he died. He was to play his game the night but unfortunately this happened. He was always going around and everything. He was the defense for his team, he won first place and like that. So, he has never been sick. We have never heard he had a heart problem. So, it was shocking for everybody."

Roy Pott Dies After Accident At Construction Site
And, another relatively young man from the north died this weekend in a construction accident. 26 year old Roy Pott was working at a water plant in Carmelita Village, Orange Walk. He and others were digging out a large cavity for an underground reservoir at a privately owned water plant. But, suddenly, the earthen wall fell on him. Police told us more:

Roy Pott's Sad Demise
Today in Caledonia village, Pott's father spoke to CTV-3 - and he told them about his son's sad demise:.. Rudy Pott, Fathe of Deceased: "And the chief said, it's time to go home. Some of them left and my son stayed. And then they shouted that the thing collapsed on top of him. He was left trapped in the hole. They dug him out and rushed him to the hospital. And when he got there he was still talking and everything. But then the doctor told him he had internal bleeding..."

No Charges Yet For Police Corporal
It's been almost two weeks now since Allyson Major was killed by a police bullet in downtown Belize City. The Commissioner of police has publicly said that the corporal who fired on him was wrong to do so. But, whether he will be criminally charged is another matter. Today in Belmopan, the Commissioner said there was some delay in getting the file to the DPP:...

Hurry-Come-Up Curfew Is Mano-Suave Style
And, in another topical case, the commissioner gave us an update on a his "hurry-come-up" curfew which he launched 10 days ago in Belize City. As we told you, it targets the parents of children who are found on the street after dark. But today the COMPOL made it clear, it's being implemented "mano-suave" style:... Chester Williams- Commissioner of Police: "We have indeed encountered some children on the streets after hours and we took them home to their parent and we issued a verbal warning..."

BTL Expert Testifies About Text Messages At Mason Trial
ON Friday, we told you how DPP Cheryl-Lynn Vidal called 2 more FBI experts to testify in the murder trial of William "Danny" Mason, Ashton Vanegas, Keiron Fernandez, Terrence Fernandez, and Ernest Castillo. The prosecution has been relying on DNA evidence to help prove that these 5 accused men are responsible for the July 2016 beheading murder Pastor Lewellyn Lucas. Well, today's testimony was about the part of the police's investigation into this case which involved the telephone communication between Pastor Lucas and William Mason. An IT specialist from BTL, testified today. He said that he was given a court order to extract text messages and registration names for 4 telephone numbers. One of those numbers belonged to Pastor Lucas, and the was allegedly a business number belonging to Mason.

Calling All Officers
Today at the Police Training Academy in Belmopan, the Commissioner of police called his second officer's conference since he took over in January. The 123 officers meaning those above the rank of Sargent - many of them recently promoted - were in session for the entire day in basically a professional development workshop. The Commissioner told us more: Chester Williams - Commissioner of Police: "It is important that as senior members of the Belize Police Department that we meet on a regular basis to be able to discuss our strategies and to see what we can do to enhance the level of service that we offer to the public..."

Promotions Cause Disgruntlement
So, those 123 officers ranked from Inspector to Commissioner from the senior command of a department with 2,300 police men and women. When promotions were approved earlier this month - a fair number of those in the rank and file weren't happy. They felt passed over, disrespected, and dealt an unjust hand. We asked the commissioner about it:.. Reporter: "For many the optimism and hope that greeted your arrival as the ComPol 6 months ago and worn off for many and there is a lot of discontent in the ranks, from the low ranks up to the high. We know that any promotion there are a lot of hearts broken and a lot of men are vex. Explain to me how are you managing this discontent?"

Cops Stage Low Grade Sick Out?
And while the commissioner defends the promotions process, reports say that disgruntled officers who were passed over started calling in sick after the promotions were announced. It got so bad, the compel had to send a memo requiring sick papers only from governnment health facilities. We asked the COMPOL and he said it wasn't that bad:... Reporter: "Is it not a fact that after the promotion finish, there were many officers who were calling in sick?" Chester Williams- Commissioner of Police: "No, that is not true. Our sick leave applicants have remained steady..."

PM Rejects Gang Narrative For June Murders
And moving from administrative matters to the situation on the ground, we also asked the COMPOL about June's murder figures which were up 340%. He said that was a bad month - but police still have things basically under control. We disputed that: Reporter: "You have been having a pretty good run as commissioner. Is it indicative of the fact that it's not about you, it's what the criminals choose to do. You dint really have control. You got lucky and got away for a few months, but then the criminals turn it up and there goes your numbers." Chester Williams - Commissioner of Police: "You have a funny way of putting things, but be that as it may, yes as I said before the month of June we took a shellacking. That is the truth..."

A Parliamentary Alliance Against Hunger
Switching gears now from crime Belize's Parliament is concerned about the rising rate of hunger and malnutrition in Belize, and so, they've decided to take direct action against it. They have formed a bipartisan organization called the Belize Parliamentary Alliance against Hunger and Malnutrition. In theroy, the Alliance will use its legislative power to make policy and legislation changes to lessen the number of Belizeans being negatively affected by these 2 social ills.

City Hall Shows Some Love
If you passed by the Swift Hall in the Lake Independence area of Belize City today, you would have definitely noticed the crowds of women and children who were there. These were there for a generous back-to-school pantry program run by the Belize City Council, in collaboration with the American Christian Outreach mission called, Brothers And Sisters Ministries. Brothers and Sisters has chosen Belize as the country where it wants to spread a little generosity to impoverished communities.

Cayo Crops Caught Suspicious Men On the Move
On Friday night, sharp police work by Cayo Police may have intercepted a crime in progress. It started with police spotting a vehicle of suspicious men on the move in Santa Elena. Police acted quickly to intercept the men and round a weapon. Here's more: ACP Joseph Myvette- Head of NCIB: "On Friday evening sometime shortky before 5pm, police on patrol in the Santa Cruz area of Santa Elena Town came upon a green in color Toyota Corolla Taxi which at the time had in 3 occupants..."

Man Shot In Turf War
And, on Friday night in Belize City, a man was shot in the Port Loyola area. Police said that at about a quarter to nine, 23 year old Jeffrey Gomez was walking in enemy territory:.. ASP Alejandro Cowo: "Just after 8pm on Friday night police visited the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where they observed Jeffrey Gomez with apparent gunshot wound to the body. What police have learned is that Jeffrey was walking on T-Street when he was pursued by two male persons. One of the persons fired shots at this direction, causing the injuries to him. He was treated and he was discharged the following morning from the hospital."

Dateline Dengue
As we told you last week, Belize - along with Mexico and Central America - is in the middle of a Dengue outbreak. As of July, there have been over 700 confirmed cases of dengue in Belize. This is 7-times more than the number of cases last year, and the year before that. The Director of Health Services told us that the disease is cyclical and that given the situation in our neighboring countries, it was expected:

The New Lodge at Jaguar Reef in Hopkins Village
Last week, I spent two heavenly two nights at the new Lodge at Jaguar Reef in Southern Belize. I say “new” even though Jaguar Reef is one of the original hotels in the area. Always beautiful, she is getting an upgrade…in some major ways. We were in heaven. The property is so large and beautiful – the suite so perfectly appointed, it was tempting to spend the whole stay inside. Our own plunge pool! An indoor/outdoor shower! Perhaps leaving our rooms just for food – the stunning restaurant was only a few steps away.

Horseback Summer Camp in Belize
Kids and “kids at heart” have been coming to Banana Bank Horse Camp since 2006. In the first year, we had 5 participants and only one camp. This year we had 25 campers in our first camp and registration is still open for our second camp in August. In 2006 there were not many summer camp options for kids in Belize and certainly none that involved horses. The concept is based on teaching awareness and riding ability for anyone who loves horses, also, campers learn how to develop a relationship with their horse. Over the years we have had many newcomers as well as veterans, kids from nearby and not so nearby, ages from five to sixty-five; but all with one thing in common..their love for horses!
