Carina Paz excels in Triathlon competition in Belize City
San Pedro’s very own Carina Paz competed in a Triathlon in Belize City on Saturday, November 16th, where she conquered three of the sport’s disciplines (swimming, biking, and running) in 42 minutes. The competition had categories including three-member teams, who relayed each step of the Triathlon. Paz opted to participate as an individual, which came with a triple challenge that she completed.
The event is an annual fundraising activity put together by St. Catherine’s Academy. This year’s competition started after 6AM at the Radisson Fort George Hotel and Marina, with swimming being the first challenge. After swimming four laps in the hotel’s pool, the athletes biked to the round-a-bout in front of St. John’s Junior College and back to Radisson Fort George Hotel.
Ambergris Caye Rotary Club teams up with Chair The Love to distribute wheelchairs to island residents
Several island residents were the recipients of a new wheelchair courtesy of the efforts of the Rotary Club of Ambergris Caye and Florida, USA based organization, Chair The Love. The handing over of the wheelchairs was held at the conference room of the Banyan Bay Suites south of San Pedro Town on Monday, November 18th, to select patients who had never owned one or needed a replacement.
During a short ceremony that started shortly after 2PM, President of the Ambergris Caye Rotary Club, Andrew Ashcroft, welcomed everyone to the special event.
SPHS celebrates Cultural Day 2019
The melting pot of cultures that exist within Belize was brought to life at San Pedro High School’s (SPHS) Annual Cultural Day. Held on Friday, November 15th at the SPHS’s Angel Nunez Auditorium, the event saw families and friends enjoying a fun and educational day. Taking into consideration the various cultures that call Belize home, SPHS students were challenged to design booths that would present information and showcase food, music, dance, and cultural attire.
Cultural Day began with a short ceremony, with dances and sounds from the various cultures of Belize on display. In acknowledgment of the arrival of the Garifuna People, celebrated annually in Belize on November 19th as Garifuna Settlement Day, students held a reenactment of the Garinagu arrival onshore.
Christmas Benefit Concert For The Dr Otto Rodriguez Poly Clinic II
The San Pedro BTIA Poly Clinic Committee has organized the first ever annual benefit Christmas Concert for the Dr. Otto Rodriguez Poly Clinic II. The concert with feature Jake Hill and Russell Hulme and will take place at the famous Fido’s Restaurant & Bar on Friday, December 13, 2019 from 7pm to 11pm.
The Dr. Otto Rodriguez Poly Clinic tends to residents and visitors free of charge and operates 24/7. Although the Government of Belize funds the Polyclinic, Belize is a small country with other clinics to funds with a limited budget. The clinic does an amazing job with what it has, but lacks the resources it desperately needs, which is where the SP BTIA committee is stepping in.
Various Belizean Sources
Garifuna Settlement Day
At the ceremony, the Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Dean Barrow had the following words to say "The annual celebration of Garifuna Settlement Day is of the highest importance. It is important to Garinagu and the Garifuna nation. It is important to Belize and the Belizean nation and indeed it is important to the world. That is because culture, of which Garifuna values, history and rituals are a supreme embodiment. Culture is important to all human beings. It is culture that has encompassed the greatest achievements of our planet. Culture is therefore seen as one of the greatest global goods. But different cultures in a world that is now set to be flat are becoming too alike and high authentic culture such as that of the Garinagu is being encroached on, leveled and threatened with reductions and diminution of the onslaught of artificial appetites and ways of life so called mass culture. In this context the importance of activities such as today’s reenactment assumes added significance, becomes a touch stone in the preservation fight."

PUP Tells Judge PM Barrow Abused 'Special Warrants' For Unapproved Spending
Last night, we brought you coverage of the lawsuit that Leader of the opposition, John Briceno and Julius Espat, the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, brought against Prime Minister Dean Barrow, and his administration.
They say that Prime Minister Barrow, acting as the Minister of Finance, has engaged in the unlawful spending of 1.3 billion dollars in public funds. As we told you, they claim he failed to get prior parliamentary approval for the spending of all that money, and that he tried to legitimize those expenditures by going to parliament and passing supplementary appropriations to cover the amounts that were spent years prior to that.
Fin Sec On the Big Oops
As we told you last night, the biggest reveal of this case so far is that the Barrow Administration has failed to get any parliamentary approval, prior or after the fact, to account for close to 100 million dollars in public funds. That money has been spent, but no appropriation bills have been passed to account to parliament for it, as is required by the law.
The Financial Secretary made that admission in court yesterday when he was being cross-examined by Senior Counsel Eamon Courtenay. This is a significant failure that legitimizes the PUP's case that going to parliament for supplementary appropriation bills, long after public monies have been spent, is a very bad idea.
Nestor Vasquez Jr.'s Killer Got Bail
Nestor Vasquez Jr's family is outraged tonight after the man who viciously beat him in a Queen Street Police Station Cell block 5 months ago was offered bail. That brutal beat down led to Vasquez's death two days later. Francis has not been charged for Vasquez's murder but still he was offered bail of $8,000 for attempted murder in relation to another incident where he stabbed nurse Augustina Elijio - days before he killed Vasquez. Vasquez's brother Jules gave the media his reaction to the news and discussed the inadequacies of the justice system.
Jules Vasquez - Brother of the Deceased:
"We have received the news that Mr. Francis has been offered bail and I am told most recent, is that he hadn't met it but my family is dismayed, alarmed and angry that Mr. Francis who killed my brother is receiving bail when he has not been charged, more than 5 months after the murder of my brother..."
Late Evening Shooting Leaves Man Critical
There has been a shooting in Belize City - and it happened just before newstime - and just a few hundred feet from the Queen Street Police station.
Reports say that two men were seen running from the area near the New Road Bridge, while their victim lay on the street in a pool of blood. But, he survived and was rushed to the KHMH where they found that he received two headshots, one entered over his left eye and exited above the right eye, while the other shot hit his lower back. His condition is not known at this time.
After 6 Years On Remand, Alleged Killer Walks Free
65 year old Marciano Correa, charged for the April 2013 murder of 43 year old Sisto Victorio Osorio, was freed of the charge today when a nolle pros was entered before of Justice Herbert Lord.
Crown Counsel Urbina said it was due to insufficient evidence so, after 6 years on remand, Correa was free to go. He was represented by attorney Dickie Bradley.
Osorio, a resident of Libertad, was struck on his head with a blunt instrument and he died as a result of the injury he sustained. His body was found lying face down on the pavement in the village. Osorio was reportedly killed because of a family dispute.
Paslow Is History, Say Hello To Heritage
Belize Heritage Plaza: That is the winning entry in the competition to name the site where the Paslow building once stood at the corner of Queen and North Front Streets in Downtown Belize City. The competition was launched in July of this year and the public was invited to make submissions and then Belizeans voted for the top 6 finalists.
After the online polls were closed and the 313 votes that were cast were counted, Eddie Middleton's entry "Belize Heritage Plaza" got 94 votes and won 1st place. His prize is $800.
Howell At The Yard
Belize's top intelligence lawman is in the UK having talks with the British. A release from the British High Commissioner says that Sr. Superintendent Howell Gillett is, quote, "in London to hold strategic discussions with officials of UK Law enforcement agencies." He is pictured at New Scotland Yard with Belize's High Commissioner to the UK, Perla Perdomo.
As history records, Belize's Special Branch has a long and storied history with its British counterparts.
Trouble Brewing At New Consolidated Tax Department
The Tax Services Department is the recently amalgamated cluster of the Income Tax and Sales Tax Departments - and, tonight, it's running into major static from the Public Service Union.
The PSU warns that all is not well within the newly amalgamated department. And, the Union says, quote, "employees of the Belize Tax Services Department remain uneasy and not fully sensitized on the amalgamation process communication is poor and is indicative of a deficientchange management team and strategy which leads us to caution that the organizational changes are bound to fail." End quote.
Belize Goes From Blacklist to Grey-list
The Financial Secretary also discussed the recent news that the The Economic and Financial Affairs Council of the European Union has agreed to remove Belize from the EU list of non-cooperative jurisdictions, which is the blacklist'.
Today, the Fin Sec said Belize is now in the grey list:
Economy Listing Due To Drought
The Financial Secretary was also asked about his perspective on the health of the country's economy. He noted that while everyone wants to see growth, they are mindful that this year's extended drought has hurt the nation's major industries. Here's are the Fin Sec's comments on that topic:
Joseph Waight - Financial Secretary:
"The economy, of course, we would like to see more growth. We realise that the drought has set us back..."
Scammed of 4k On FB
A 72 year old Placencia man was swindled out of $4,000 - in a bogus sale that was set up on facebook. Allan Stamp wanted to buy a golf cart from a person who goes by the name of Thomas Young on facebook. Young arranged to have someone meet Stamp in Belama and collect the money. But after that transaction, Young could not be found and Stamp never got his golf cart. Police told us more at the press briefing this morning.
Sr. Supt. Hilberto Romero - CIB:
"Allan Stamp, 72 years naturalised Belizean of Placencia Village reported that he made contact with one Thomas Young on Facebook regarding the sale of a golf cart...".
A Conviction for Drug Trafficking
In 2010, it was big news when San Ignacio police found 20 kilos, or 46 pounds of cocaine concealed under a vehicle driven by Corozal resident Carlos Gibson. It was coming over from Guatemala.
Well, almost a decade later, reports say Gibson has been fined for the drugs.
He reportedly pleaded guilty at Belmopan Supreme Court and was fined $25,000 to be paid by 30th June of next year or in default face 2 yrs imprisonment.
Fort Street Tourism Village, From Grace To Grass, Cream To Crumbs
The Fort Street Tourism Village was once a vibrant disembarkation point for cruise ship visitors, a place that bustled with excited new arrivals who freely interacted with the locals, purchasing their products and services, and providing many of them with an independent means of making a living form tourism.
But according to the tour operators and vendors that remain active in the FSTV, those days are long gone. They say that their opportunities to live from cruise tourism revenue has been worsening for three years now, and according to them, the cruise and big tour companies have stifled their business ventures, even resorting to smear campaigns.

3 Awesome Instagrammable Places in Belize
Belize is a small country with breathtaking surroundings. There are many picturesque places. Beautiful cayes, surrounded by turquoise waters, ancient Maya sites and majestic waterfalls hidden amongst Belize’s lush jungle are just a few stunning locations and sites worth visiting and worth capturing beautiful moments to remind you of your travels.
As you travel across Belize, walk off the beaten path you may discover some great compositions. Here are our top 3 Instagrammable places to consider when visiting Belize.
The Ultimate Belizean Fudge Recipe
On a scale of one to ten, how much of a sugar freak are you? We would like to believe that everyone has a sweet tooth buried somewhere within them, especially when it comes to taking a bite of a Belizean fudge.
Belize has some unique and interesting, yet delicious sweets that we urge you to try when you’re here. Belizean fudge, one of our all-time favorite desserts, differs from your typical fudge recipes that are chocolate-based. Belizean fudge is a sweet little treat composed mainly of condensed milk, peanuts, sugar, and often rounded with raisins or shredded coconuts if you please. It is very smooth and perfect for your sweet cravings.
Altun Ha: An Amazing Archaeological Site to Visit in Belize
Altun Ha is one of several important Maya sites that dot Belize. Although Altun Ha is still being explored, it has already given archaeologists and historians important clues about the way the Maya lived, traded and developed their economies.
The site is about 30 miles from Belize City and it is open to the public every day. There is also a museum at the site.
Like many Maya ruins in Belize, Altun Ha sits in a thickly forested jungle area populated by numerous animals. You’ll see dozens of bird species in addition to animals like foxes, deer, squirrels, and armadillos. Crocodiles inhabit the reservoir that was originally built by Altun Ha’s Maya residents, and the site is also home to tapirs, Belize’s national animals.
Wildlife is one of Belize’s best-kept treasures with about 145 species of mammals, 139 species of reptiles, and over 500 species of birds; it is an absolute wonderland and such a beautiful sight for our travellers. Which means it is of key importance that the wildlife is protected from hunters and poachers, so as to keep these species from extinction and to keep the ecosystems thriving. As a result, there are a number of wildlife sanctuaries and reserves, namely: Crooked Tree Wildlife Sanctuary, Cockscomb Basin Wildlife Sanctuary, The Community Baboon Sanctuary, and Green Iguana Conservation Project.
Chillaxin' on Caye Caulker
One of our favorite day trips is traveling to our nearby sister island, Caye Caulker. This quaint little Caye is known for its chill atmosphere, sunny days, lovely beaches, good food, and cold drinks! While living in San Pedro, spending a day on Caye Caulker is like having a mini vacation and, of course, if you are visiting Ambergris Caye, it certainly is a must do afternoon visit.
Once you arrive to Caye Caulker, no matter how you get there it is time to get your “chill” attitude on! Basically, there is one main road on the Caye, the street is a sandy beach road bustling with restaurants, people walking or riding bikes or an occasional golf cart will scoot by. As you slowly stroll down the street taking in all the vendors, we suggest to shop at some of the local street jewelers or artists. If you prefer to do a little store shopping, we highly suggest the Toucan Gift Store, tons of fun tchotchkes.
