Close Encounters At Sea (Survival Stories)
In this article I want to document real close encounters of San Pedranos that we may remember for generations. They are real stories that have been told throughout the years. They were a big deal back then, when local fishermen and divers lacked the modern equipment, technology and medical services were scarce on the island. Enjoy this two-part article with incredible stories about our local fishermen.

Training for the management of VHF and satellite tracking devices used for monitoring manatees
On Tuesday August 29, 2019, the Sarteneja Alliance for Conservation and Development (SACD) Research and Monitoring team traveled to Chetumal to attend a two days training on the management of VHF (Very High Frequency) and satellite transmitters arranged by El Instituto de Biodiverisdad de Areas Naturales Protegidas de Quintana Roo (IBANQROO). The training took place at el Centro de Atención y Rehabilitación de Mamiferos Acuáticos and was facilitated by the PhD. Benjamin Morales Vela and his assistant Blanca Prado from Elcolegio de la Frontera Sur (ECOSUR). The objective of the training was to provide the fundamental knowledge of the use of VHF transmitters and satellite trackers which are used for monitoring manatees or other animals. The transmitters provide information on location, movement, and behavior of the tagged manatee. The ARGOS program is used to collect the satellite information sent by the trackers and provides real time information of the manatees.

Faber Forges Forward, But Does He Have The Numbers?
We start tonight with politics - where UDP Deputy Leader Patrick Faber yesterday officially launched his campaign for party leadership. The convention for that will be held in February of next year, and Faber hit the ground running yesterday with a mega event at the Civic Center. Officially, it was an endorsement convention just for Faber's stronghold in Collett, but unofficially, it was the launch of the drive to February where everything is on the line for this young politician. Jules Vasquez was at the Civic for the political heat check:...

Succession Tension
We note that while we counted 7 constituency area reps or standard bearers, and found 9 when we reviewed our footage, Faber's camp says we have it all wrong. His campaign manager Roosevelt Blades says, quote, "we had representation from 25 of the 31 constituencies yesterday." End quote. And what was the crowd count? We'd put it at about 1,250, including a large number of persons who stayed outside where the food and drinks were.

Man Murdered At Former Stash-House
A man was killed in the city this weekend - and it happened at a property that made the news as a stash house weeks ago. On Friday night, it was a murder scene Cherisse Halsall reports: On Friday night at midnight former Coast Guardsman 25 year old Devaun Maskall had just gotten home to this house at mile four and a half on the Phillip Goldson highway where he was ambushed by a gunman: Supt. Hilberto Romero, Crimes Investigation Branch: "On Saturday the 31st of August around midnight police responded to a shooting incident at..."

Man Comes After Cop Ran Into Him
Tonight, a family from Camalote Village is worried about the head of their family. He's 60-year-old Rejinaldo Ruiz, a father of 4, and he's in a coma at the KHMH. Yesterday evening at around 5:00, he was on the way to his job site at Caves Branch Branch. But, he never made it because while he was riding his motorcycle on the George Price Highway, he was rear-ended by a police patrol pickup truck driven by Inspector Clifton Jones.

Cops Served Inspector With NIP
So, the cops must now investigate and weigh criminal charges against one of their own for his involvement in this accident that now has Rejinaldo Ruiz in a coma. This afternoon, the Head of the Criminal Investigation's Branch told the press that they've already taken a urine sample from him, and he's been issued with a notice of intended prosecution. Here are the details he shared with us about the case: ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, National Crimes Investigation Branch: "Yesterday evening shortly after 5pm, Roaring Creek police was called to an area between miles 44 and 45 on the George Price Highway..."

"Ladrones" In Lazaro
A man and his wife are fortunate to be alive after they were attacked in their village home. The home invasion happened on Saturday night in San Lazaro, and Police told us more. ACP Joesph Myvette: "Orange Walk police was called to San Lazaro village to the home of Romeo Castillo where he reported to police that sometime between 10:00pm on the said Saturday..."

Lawless Coast Guardsman?
Tonight, Belmopan police have an officer from the Belize Coast Guard in custody. That's after he allegedly barged into the Teul family home in the San Martin area, threatened several of the members, fired a live round from an unlicensed firearm, and struck one of the female residents with the gun. It happened this morning at around 8:00. It appears that this accused man has an ongoing dispute with several members of the family, and so, he reportedly went to their home, which is when the scary assault reportedly played out.

Carnival Season Starts On Sour Note With Attack on Child
It should be about revelry and dancing in the street, but on Friday night, the Carnival season started out on a sour note. A 10 year old girl was stoned in the head - at the end of the Carnival motorcade that signals the start of Carnival. Her group, Jump Street Posse Junior Band - which is a fixture of carnival - was at the tail end of the motorcade when a few of their spectators started throwing stones at the kids. Cherisse Halsall tells us what happened next:

Bus Association Ultimatum Hangs Damoclean
Last week Thursday's newscast, we spoke to Darren Stuart Sr., one of the executive members of the Belize Bus Association. He was saying in no uncertain terms that if the government had not amicably resolved the current dispute they have about foreign bus owners operating on Belize's roads, they would resort some form of industrial action - AKA a bus strike. The source of the dispute is that about a month ago, the Government agreed that it would limit Guatemalan and Mexican bus operators. The two sides agreed in principle that they would require these operators to hand off their passengers at the borders to local bus operators and taxi cooperatives, who would take over and transport these passengers around the country.

Bahamas Desperate and Devastated, Dorian Stalls
Hurricane Dorian has devastated the northern Bahamas and tonight, it remains an extremely powerful category 4 storm. And what's most troubling at this hour is that the steering currents have collapsed - and the storm is stationary, just sitting over the island of Grand Bahama and pommeling it with relentless rain, massive winds and towering storm surges. It's a worst case scenario as the storm is stationary tonight and is expected to continue to sit in Grand Bahama for another 12 hours. And that's after it mashed up the island of Abaco yesterday. That's a total population of about 50 - 70 thousand Bahamians in its path.

Former Guat Presidential Candidate To Jail
She lost the presidential election last month, and, tonight, Guatemalan politician with Belizean roots, Sandra Torres is in jail, accused of violating campaign financing rules. Press reports indicate that for more than a decade now, Torres has been facing allegations of corruption, which she continues to deny. The charges she faces are in connection with a case that was investigated by the anti-corruption body known as CICIG, or the International Commission against Impunity in Guatemala. That organization says that her political party, National Unity of Hope or UNE for short, received some 3.5 million dollars in undeclared financing during the 2015 presidential elections.

Rasheed Accident, The Fatal Factors
On Friday we told you about the tragic death of 28 year old Rasheed Pollard. It happened at mile 4 on the Phillip Goldson highway. He was driving back into the city after a night out celebrating his birthday with family and friends in Ladyville. But something went wrong and he slammed into a lamp-post which caused his vehicle to flip. Today police gave their official report on it.

Perez's Motorbike Death
And as we also reported on Friday, a Punta Gorda resident was killed in a motorbike accident on the Southern Highway. Greg Perez, along with his passenger were heading to Independence from PG when he Perez lost control of his motorcycle. Police told us more. ACP Joesph Myvette, Head, NCIB: "What the police know so far is that Mr. Perez along with Mr. Lawrence Cholom who was his passenger departed PG en route to Independence on the motorcycle and upon reaching miles 63 and 64 he lost control..."

PG Was Host for Sept. Celeb Opening
Ready or not, September is here and the pre-carnival motorcades and mas camp madness has already begun. And, to officially launch the September celebrations, opening ceremonies were held on Saturday in Punta Gorda. Here are a few excerpts from the event. Next year's opening ceremonies will be held in Dangriga.

The Queen is From Cayo
And, in another big September celebrations event, San Ignacio's Kimberley Santos was named Queen of the Bay at the Bliss Institute of the Performing Arts on Saturday night. Santos's crowning is historic as the last Queen of the Bay who hailed from the Twin Towns was Yolanda Cruz in 1965. Kimberley, who was crowned in a sparkling red dress, is a proud graduate of Sacred Heart College and is now pursuing her Bachelor's Degree in English Education at the University of Belize.

Guest Blog - The Life of an Expat
So, you visited San Pedro on vacation, fell in love and want to retire or work here in paradise. The story has been repeated many times over by those that have gone before you and my wife Annette and I are a living example. When we moved here in August of 2017, as we started making friends we would often ask what brought you here to San Pedro? The answer nearly always had the same message, we came here, we fell in love and we moved. That’s what happened to us beginning with our first visit in February 2016. In 2016, we decided to try San Pedro Belize and stayed at Ramon’s Village. It was in the center of town and allowed us to explore on foot so it seemed like a wise choice. As we walked the beach to dinner on our first night, Annette turned to me and said “I love this place”.

Join in on the September Celebrations!
Ask any Belizean, young or old, which month of the year is the one they look forward to the most and hands down the overwhelming response will be September.It is a time of great patriotic celebrations! A month filled with festivities commemorating two important dates in our young country’s history, The Battle of St. George’s Caye and Independence Day. Belizeans everywhere are very proud of our forefathers for standing up and defending this small nation and making it the only English-speaking country in Central America.

Royal bombshell: How Prince Charles plans to 'chart new territory' in the future
He may become king one day and Robert Jobson’s 'Charles at Seventy', looks at the first 70 years of his life so far. Upon becoming King, Charles would become the Head of the Church, like his mother, Queen Elizabeth II is currently. According to Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, Charles wants to set new ground upon becoming the Head of the Church. Mr Jobson notes: “Clearly, our next Supreme Governor of the Church of England plans to do the job a little differently. “‘He is an individual who wants to chart new territory and that will be interesting indeed,’ says Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury. ‘He is very outspoken.’”

Nine Caribbean teams in CONCACAF U-17
In the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football qualifiers playoff to decide which of the lower-ranked teams would go through for the finals next year, Barbados matched Belize with seven points in Group C, but had to give way to the Central Americans on goal difference. Belize, with whom hosts Barbados had played to a draw in the opening game at the Wildey, AstroTurf, proved more prolific in scoring 10 goals while conceding only four. Barbados on the other hand managed just three goals in the three matches while taking in one goal. This means that Belize goes on to the 2020 CONCACAF championship.

J-Crew Breaks Out In Belize
“Last night I dreamt of San Pedro … la isla bonita ..” Mel and Ashley are the only Jers who can actually remember the words to Madonna’s tribute to our spring break destination, but that didn’t stop the rest of us from making up our own words. San Pedro first struck us as adorable with a mini airport, golf carts driven on sandy roads, colorful shops and blue skies. We flew in by puddle jumper and went out by boat. We thought it charming that to take your golf cart from the main town to the resorts requires a guy with a rope pulls you across a river on a steel raft. Ironically, we thought we were being creative by adding Belize to our itinerary largely because it is so close to Guatemala.
