Wilfred Elrington led the Belize delegation at the 9th African, Caribbean, Pacific (ACP) Summit of Heads of States and Governments held in Nairobi, Kenya from December 9-10, 2019. Under the theme “A Transformed ACP Dedicated to Multilateralism”, the leaders discussed important issues of concern for the ACP regions including climate change, ocean governance, and the defense of multilateralism. Belize commended the ACP Group for its efforts in addressing climate change and called on the transformed ACP to play a major global role in multilateral cooperation, particularly for the championing of Small Island Developing States (SIDS) issues. The Summit was preceded by other ACP Ministerial meetings, including the 110th ACP Council of Ministers.

BNN Calls Government To Support Transition Away From Gillnets
[Press Release, Belize City, Belize, 11 December 2019] For two decades, many Belizean fishers have been calling for a ban on gillnets. Over the past 18 months, following a number of meetings with Government officials and licensed gill-netters, a coalition of NGOs, including commercial fishermen, sports fishers, game fishers, and tourism and conservation organizations, drafted a comprehensive proposal to transition those 83 fishers who have a gillnet license away from the gear.

The Belize Zoo sadly announces the passing Junior Buddy the Jaguar
Junior Buddy passed from heart failure yesterday evening, December 12, 2019. The exact cause of the heart failure remains unknown until further diagnostic testing is conducted. “It’s a sad day for all of us,” says Sharon Matola, TBZ's Founding Director. “Our animals are like members of our family and losing a family member is tough! Junior Buddy was an exceptional ambassador for his species and liked to interact with guests; he will be missed by many.

Another Head on Collision, This Time Hummingbird Hwy
There has been another fatality on one of Belize's major highways. It happened after 3:00 this afternoon on the Valley Road, which is in the Alta Vista area, a stretch of the Hummingbird Highway. There was a massive head-on collision between a Toyota Rush SUV and a Ford Passenger van. Reports say that one of the vehicles may have been trying to overtake and ended up directly in the other's lane -causing the high speed head on. Unofficial reports say there was one fatality and multiple persons injured - who were rushed to the Southern Regional.

Ruthless Roaring Creek Murder
28 year old Roaring resident Timroy Neal was executed last night after 10:00 in front of a Chinese store. Neal was shot at point blank range in very deliberate and merciless execution. Now, Neal has had several run-ins with the law, but his family says Neal was changed man. Well, his attacker didn't feel so or just didn't care. Courtney Weatherburne has more. Last night there was a most unlucky tragedy at Lucky Entertainment store in Roaring Creek, across the street from the Roaring Creek Police Substation. Timroy Neal was shot 7 times to the head.

Can Police Contain Retaliation
We caught up with Commissioner of Police Chester Williams this evening and he told police are monitoring to try and contain any retaliation for Neal's murder. Reporter: "Are you able to say at this point if there is anything connected to Mr. Neal's past that may have resulted in his murder?" Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: "Well, I don't like to go into the past history of persons who are victims of murder, but I will advise you to go into your archives and you will see what you need to see there."

Constable Signed For Three Guns, Returned None
Police Constable Nadir Mendoza is still a wanted man tonight. As we told you the constable is under investigation for the theft of two firearms from the Precinct Three formation in Belize City. Today, the Commissioner said it's actually three guns! He discussed the details of the case: Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: "Three firearms were signed out by a police officer, Nadir Mendoza, over a period of time and upon inspection of the firearm register, it shows that the officer didn't sing the firearm back in..."

Another Home Invasion In Residential Neighborhood
We've been reporting on Monday afternoon's brazen home invasion on Samuel Haynes Street in the Belama Phase 1 area of Belize City. It was the second home on this street in 2 weeks. Well, tonight, police are investigating another aggravated burglary in a residential northside neighborhood; this time, criminals targeted a family living in the King's Park area. At around 4:30 this morning, Kishore Lumar Lalwani woke up to find 3 armed, masked men in his bedroom.

Compol On The Tough Job Of Keeping City Safe
So, how will police address all these pre-holiday crimes that have been plaguing Belize City? Well, the Police Commissioner says that they have a strategy in place, but they need City residents to do their part to keep themselves safe. Here's how he explained it to the press today: Chester Williams, Commissioner of Police: "We do realize that at this time of the year it is a festive time and people are preparing for the holidays and we have a responsibility to ensure their safety...."

San Pedro Cops Got Three Guns
San Pedro Special Branch took 3 guns off the streets of the Island town in a single operation. Not many details of the operation are known - other than the fact that they got two nine millimeters pistols and one 38, and arrested five men. We'll know more when they go to court. When we spoke to Police commissioner Williams, earlier today, he told us effective policing starts at the top of the island formation.

COMPOL Defends OT For SPU Boss
The Commissioner also freely discussed the sizable extra hours payment to commander of the SPU, Superintendent Aaron Gamboa. As we told you last night, during Easter, September celebrations and December, police get paid for what's called payment "extraneous hours." Basically, it's extra hours the cops work to keep criminals at bay while you celebrate. Commander of the Special Patrol Unit, Superintendent Aaron Gamboa's September payout is over three thousand dollars, almost as much as his monthly salary.

A Mosque of Mercy
If you're a regular viewer of 7News, you should know the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat very well. The group of Islamic missionaries have gained a strong community foothold here over the last 5 years. And they've done that not by asking Belizeans to come and worship Allah, but by their deeds, spearheading very many community-based outreach initiatives - such as the hugely successful basketball league. And now they're hoping to parlay that popularity into support for their first mosque in the country. This morning, they hosted a press conference to tell the general public that construction will begin tomorrow and that when it is completed, all well-intentioned individuals are welcomed to visit.

The AC Ordeal At Chiste Garcia Stadium
The Chiste Garcia Auditorium in Dangriga was opened in January of 2019. And while it has been well received, the place has no air conditioning and it can be cruel to sit inside on a Sunny day or a humid night. And, to hear the local political movers tell it - that stadium has no AC because the UDP is a house divided against itself. Here's how UDP Dangriga Divisional Chairman Clifford Peters, known as "Boss P" put it in October:

A Griga Groundbreaking
And, Mena called it a wonderful day because of the AC units and because of a groundbreaking of a school in the Wagierale area. That's another reason Faber was in the southern town at what will be the Benguche Government Pre-School. This is one of the 35 new schools it will build with the help of the Caribbean Development Bank.

Corozal Groundbreaking "Complicated"ť
And while that school groundbreaking went smoothly - not so in Corozal. A groundbreaking had to be postponed because of a dispute between the Ministry of Education and the BNTU. It's over the parcel of land in Corozal where the Ministry of Education wants to build a preschool. The BNTU says not so fast, because Union executives in Corozal expressed that they are in the process of acquiring the land.

In Kenya, Belize Thanks ACP Countries for Support
Foreign Affairs Minister Wilfred Elrington was in Nairobi, Kenya for the 9th African, Caribbean Pacific Summit of the Heads of States and Government. This summit, which took place on December 9th and 10th, was held under the theme, "A Transformed ACP Dedicated to Multilateralism". It was held to discuss issues such as climate change, ocean governance, and defense of multilateralism. Belize thanked the ACP Group for its unwavering solidarity and support of its sovereignty and territorial integrity.

A Bike For Five Bucks?
A bike for $5? With Christmas on the horizon you might be asking where to sign up for that deal! Well if you weren't at the Queen Street Police station earlier today, sorry to say.you missed your chance. In the last 6 months, Police officers have collected dozens of motorcycles and hundreds of bikes from perpetrators, crime scenes and as unclaimed evidence. And today they put them all on auction. These bike prices run so low because the majority of them are extremely old, rusty, and worn out.

What the Reward Fund Does
You heard Superintendent Tucker say that the funds earned by the auction would be funneled into the Police reward fund. So what is the special reward fund? We asked Commissioner Willams today:

Compol Comes Through For Kids on Antelope Street
10 Bikes were spared from the auctioneer's block and that's because Commissioner Williams had already pledged them to G. Micheal Reid's Charlie Burton Foundation. We spoke to both men at the Racoon Street police station this evening, and they introduced us to ten young boys from the Antelope street area who will now be better able to get safely to and from school.

The Big Goodbye For Junior Buddy
He's one of the most famous animals ever in Belize - but Junior Buddy the jaguar is no more. The big cat passed yesterday evening due to heart failure. He had a very public life, an animal raised in captivity as a poster boy for jaguar education in Belize. We've attended his birth celebrations for most of the 12 years he lived and for a look back we go as far as 2009, and as close as 2018. Here's more:

Cops, villagers fight Guat bandits’ thievery
Residents of San Jose Succotz, which is in close proximity to the Belize-Guatemala border in the western part of the country, are angry and up in arms because Guatemalan bandits frequently come into the village to hold up and rob villagers, and steal vehicles, which are then smuggled into Guatemala. The village chairman, Wilson Pott, said that yesterday, men believed to be bandits from Guatemala were seen scouring the village and taking photos of homes and vehicles parked in some yards. The men were seen in the village a day after a resident, his wife and children were held up in their home on Monday night by three armed, masked men, and his vehicle was stolen.

Alvin Chi, 35, jacked at home; pickup stolen by Guat bandits
At about 8:30 last Saturday night, Alvin Chi, 35, a furniture maker, was at home along with his wife and two children when three men came into the house and held him and his wife at gunpoint. Chi was ordered to hand over the keys to his pickup. He immediately complied, and also told them that the vehicle was in good order, and that its gas tank was half-full. He said that the bandits told him that if the vehicle malfunctioned, they would return and kill him and his family, and also, if he reported the matter to police and made comments on Facebook, they would come back and kill him. They then drove away.

Hipolito Bautista, a true Belizean for all seasons, dead at 69
Hipolito Bautista, a Belizean whose work in various fields has left an indelible imprint on what it means to be committed to the ideals of national development, died yesterday, Wednesday, December 11, at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit. He was 69. “Yesterday was a painful day for me, when I learned that ‘Bou’ died”, said Francis Gegg, a longtime friend who described Bautista as being “one of my closet friends—like a brother to me.” Bautista lived with one of his sons in Belmopan. Gegg recalled visiting his friend about three weeks ago and “he was in good spirits.” “I had a very good visit; we laughed a lot. So now I only have the better memories,” said Gegg.

“Valentine Baptist, you are guilty of murder,” Justice Colin Williams tells prisoner

“Sure I loved the ladies. But I got a bum rap,” says 101-year-old RB
“Me an my partners had a club — we rented Thistle Hall — and on the weekends we held parties. All the ladies would be inside the hall, waiting for a partner, and the guys would be hanging around outside, doing who knows what. The ladies wanted to dance; I loved to dance; so I danced with all of them,” RB (Roy Belisle) said. God spares life, on December 18 RB will be celebrating his 102nd year on earth, at Harmonyville, where he resides with his caregiver, Ms. Gloria Soriano, and her family. RB isn’t doing so well these days, largely because he is bedridden.

Traffic lights will bring order to busy intersections in Belize City
Belize once made it on the US game show Jeopardy with the question: Which country only has one traffic light? Presentely, the folks at Jeopardy cannot bring that same question back, because that reality has changed. Traffic lights have been installed in several municipalities throughout the country. In fact, one week ago, the Belize City Council installed a set of six lights at the busy intersection of Central American Boulevard at its junction with Neal Pen Road. The state-of-the-art traffic lights which confirm to international standards are equipped with cameras that can photograph violations, and drivers who run the red lights are putting themselves at risk of being ticketed through an automated system.

The park is now a full-scale recreational area for the kids and is equipped with a basketball court, and an area for football, and other amenities. The playground was officially named the Charlie Burton Park.

A pleasant time of the day to all cricket enthusiasts! The President of Belize National Cricket Association (BNCA), Dr. Roy Young and the governing body of the Association are highly pleased to inform you all of the continued progress of cricket in Belize. Female National Cricket Team By the time this news hits the streets at home and abroad, fourteen (14) female cricket players will be on their way to Costa Rica to play six games against three teams in the mid-season international tour (Female).

Teachers prepare to fight over land — again
There is new friction between the Belize National Teachers Union (BNTU) and the Ministry of Education (MoE) as a result of actions being taken by the ministry in accordance with its Education Quality Improvement Program (EQIP), which has been run by the Ministry of Education since 2015 and was designed to improve the quality of education for primary and secondary students by adequately training educators and developing new schools and educational facilities in the country. The program, which was discussed as recently as December 4 at the last House of Representatives meeting, exists to furnish teachers with the skills and tools necessary to apply more effective learning strategies and yield higher standardized test results.

His mother told us that she was rather surprised that he was released quickly, but at home Badillo began to suffer with pain in his neck and he had severe headaches.

Editorial: Our senators need some teeth
Some of the most brilliant minds Belize has produced have served in the Senate, and the debates in that arm of government testify to that. Most Belizeans would say that they learn more from the debates in the Senate than they do from debates in the House of Representatives, which are oftentimes given to grandstanding. The trouble for Belize is that where the more serious talk is, there is very limited power, and where the sometimes wasteful talk is, power is unfettered. One of the longest serving senators in our country, present Leader of Government Business in the Senate, Hon. Godwin Hulse, was the senator representing the business sector in May, 2007, when, speaking on a bill that would transfer millions of dollars in assets at BTL, to Telemedia, he expressed his frustration with the impotence of the body.

Fatal collision in Trinidad
At about 5:30 this morning, Leonardo Vasquez, 23, a farmer of Trial Farm, Orange Walk District, who was driving his motorcycle on the La Union Road from Trial Farm to August Pine Ridge, Orange Walk District, slammed into a tractor in a head-on collision and died almost immediately. Police say that the motorcyclist fell onto the road, and died from massive head and body injuries. The motorcycle, which was lodged under the tractor, erupted in flames, causing the wheels of the tractor to ignite, and also begin burning.

From the Publisher
Continuing in our recent series on Creole leadership in the second half of the twentieth century, we now come to the man Dean Russell Lindo, an economist and attorney who founded the People’s Development Movement (PDM) in 1969, and then became the first Leader of today’s ruling United Democratic Party (UDP) in September of 1973. (Lindo resigned as UDP Leader following the UDP’s shock defeat in the 1979 general election.) If you study the life and career of the late Dean Lindo closely, you will be forced to the conclusion that he was a selfish, self-centered individual. Married twice, to two of the most beautiful women in our lifetime, Lindo fathered one child, a son, Martin, with the former Eva Elizabeth “Betty” Fairweather, but the record indicated that he never paid that much attention to his only son.

Tutbay Yabra FC U-10 and Caesar Ridge U-13 are champions of 2019 Future Little League U-10 & U-13 Football Tournament

Eckert Lewis interviewed by Charles Bartlett Hyde
As a young boy of 8 or 9 years old, Eckert Lewis used to walk in the streets in the vicinity of 86 Eve Street, Belize City, where he lived at the time. Nothing unusual about this, except that a pair of boxing gloves hung from his neck by their lacing, and any of the boys he encountered on the way were welcome to try a round or two. The gloves were a present from his elder sister, Jean, who felt that he ought to have his own equipment since he seemed to have an addiction to the sport. A neighbor, Mr. Gilbert Bradley, had bought a pair of gloves for his sons, and Eckert was spending all his spare time at the Bradley’s. The other boys in the neighborhood were attracted also, but none of them had a relative with the generosity and foresight of Sister Jean.

Krismos shirts for 3 columnists (none for Canul Luna)
I really would have liked to buy shirts for all columnists in Belize, because I look to them for energy every week, but I have my budget. In the columns sections of the weeklies, it’s all about enlightenment, entertainment, political spin, independent spin, and flavor. Keep up the great work, all of you. Quién sabe, if you didn’t get a shirt from me this year, God spare life and my niece, Jacinta (AMANDALA’s business manager), remaining supportive of my having a column in the great Amandala, you might get the special next year Krismos. My first shirt goes to Mike Rudon of the Reporter. Braa, if you have to go to a pub for a little libation so you feel the spirit of the season, take only enough money to cover a few drinks and wear my shirt which says: “If yu buy mi a drink my family will kill yu”.

Musings by the Curious Nonconformist
I break my long-standing absence from my column by referencing and reflecting on the great words of Maestro Yasser Musa: “I recognize the beacon that is Cuba and its revolution, especially to the micro-nations, like us, of the earth. In the face of great adversity, we continue to struggle to determine who we are and it is our responsibility to teach solidarity and social justice.” Cuba is affectionately referred to as “la isla bella” for good reason; it is a remarkably beautiful country, of even more beautiful people, one of the world’s greatest contributors to the art and music industries, and she has a heartbeat which she marches to without apology.

Matron’s sister, Millicent, rescues Lucille
Nine weeks was not a long time for Lucille to wind up her affairs and vacate the government premises that had been her home since arriving in the town as a bride for what seemed so long ago, but right after the departure of her in-laws she had applied herself to this task. One of the first things she had done was get in touch with Mrs. Atkins, whose assistance and advice made the transition from the secure life of a Senior Civil Servant’s wife to ordinary citizen as smooth as possible. With her help she had been able to sell all unused linens, the leftover wedding gifts and the furniture, except for the baby’s crib, dresser, pram and her sewing-machine with its table.

Bandits – Verdes, 1-1 in PLB Finals Game 1; Game 2 “for all the marbles” this weeken
The Premier League of Belize (PLB) 2019-2020 Opening Season is down to its final game this coming weekend, after game 1 of the final series ended in a 1-1 draw last night at the Isidoro Beaton Stadium between home standing Bandits Sport and Verdes FC. Verdes took a 1-nil lead at the 35th minute, after left midfielder Denmark Casey’s cross-goal floater found advancing right-side striker Krisean Lopez, who unleashed a right-footed half-volley from 15 yards that caromed off the body of Bandits defender Carlos Urtilla and past goalkeeper Shane Orio into the net.

Only the people can save the people
Dear Editor, Election season in Belize has started. Although my philosophy is antagonistic to most politicians, I engage in dialogue. I prefer substance over form. Soon, political manifestos will be issued. Although they are supposed to declare the programs, positions and new ideas of the issuer, they are historically empty promises to a desperate populace. They only highlight the programs, but not the costs or drawbacks.

Alejandro reminisces about Jerry Cattouse
Dear Editor, In the From the Publisher column of November 22, 2019, Hyde refers to an Amandala article (Aug. 25/81) about Gerald Cattouse, the eldest son of Minister Albert Cattouse, the right hand of George Price in the 50’s and 60’s. I knew Jerry Cattouse when he had Jerry’s Tours in the 7th St. Zone-1 in Guatemala City. We used to palaver together and drink coffee. Jerry used to help people, especially Belizeans.

Allegations of corruption against Venezuela’s Juan Guaidó signal end to his leadership quest
The Ambassador of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to Belize, His Excellency, Ambassador Gerardo Argote, in an exclusive interview with Amandala, updated us on the situation in his country as it relates to what a few months ago appeared to be a parallel government — with President Nicholas Maduro on the one hand and the US-backed “interim president” Juan Guaidó, around whom allegations of corruption are now swirling, on the other. Ambassador Argote declared that Venezuela has won, because his embattled country has been able to avoid a war with neighboring Columbia and a civil war within its own borders. The allegation of corruption against Juan Guaidó has crippled his chances of toppling the Nicholas Maduro government.

The Blues At Christmas
When we hear the word Christmas, for many we envision twinkling lights, Christmas trees, tinsels, ham, turkey, black cake, gifts, rumpopo, and the list of celebratory items goes on and on. It can be said that for many Christmas is a happy time, but also we must acknowledge that Christmas is also a time where we can feel overwhelmed with the packed month of activities.

Rumble in the Heartland
‘District’ and ‘Village’ have always been places of reprieve for city folks and those in urban areas when they want to relax, recharge, rejuvenate and even retire. This can be seen especially during the holiday season and even more so during Easter.

Let’s get jolly with Christmas Rompope!
. One libation that stands out as a Christmas concoction is eggnog, or as we Belizean know it, Rompope. The egg-based drink is seasoned with local spices and is a true taste of home. Rompope has always been present at family festivities during the holiday but never had I tried it. It wasn’t until recently that I got to sample the boozy Christmas drink made by the top distillery in Belize.

A Trio of Big Airline News For Belize
Tropic Air commemorated its 40th birthday December 11th, and the airline celebrated with customers. I missed the festivities the following day as I was already slated for two events – a salon party followed by a deli and real estate event. I got my celebration in a day early with a flight to Belmopan and back. While flying from Belmopan to San Pedro, I had a chance to get some great footage of the new Caye Caulker terminal and a cool runway shot. We were originally supposed to stop at Belize City Municipal Airport but got rerouted. I love flying in Belize, it helps me remember how much open space we have.

The Annual Christmas Bird Count
In Belize, the average person may know Christmas is near when seeing the annual migrating flock of Tree Swallows migrating in the hundreds, if not thousands. For Belizean birders? The tell-tale sign is the annual Christmas Bird Count. Rooted in bird conservation, the Christmas Bird Count is an annual early-winter bird census that relies on the participation of community volunteers. First started by the National Audubon Society in the USA as their longest-standing citizen-science program 120 years ago, the Christmas Bird Count (CBC) was adapted in Belize by the founding members of the Belize Audubon Society in 1969 for the Belize City CBC.

Ninety Percent Of Predatory Fish Gone From Caribbean Coral Reefs Due To Overfishing
Researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill have found that up to 90 percent of predatory fish are gone from Caribbean coral reefs, straining the ocean ecosystem and coastal economy. The good news? They identified reefs, known as supersites, which can support large numbers of predator fishes that if reintroduced, can help restore the environmental and economic setback inflicted by overfishing. The team surveyed 39 reefs across the Bahamas, Cuba, Florida, Mexico and Belize, both inside and outside , to determine how much fish had been lost by comparing on pristine sites to fish biomass on a typical reef. They estimated the biomass in each location and found that 90 percent of were gone due to overfishing.

Indigenous groups rally to protect Latin America's threatened forests
Central American countries are teaming up to conserve the region’s five great forests as part of a regional climate action plan released at U.N. climate talks in Madrid this week, the alliance behind the effort said. The coalition of governments, indigenous people, green groups and others announced a plan to protect 10 million hectares of forests and degraded land inside those forests - an area roughly the size of Guatemala - by 2030. In the last 15 years, three of the forests have been reduced by almost one-quarter in size, with illegal cattle ranching responsible for more than 90% of recent deforestation, it said.

This traditionally English-sounding affair, however, will take place deep in the Mayan jungle in Belize, where Green and Thwaite run the Hidden Haven resort in the Cayo district’s San Ignacio. They paid $300,000 for the 15-acre resort, which includes two main houses and cabanas for holiday lets. “The hardest elements have been opening a bank account, due to money-laundering checks, finding good workmen and learning to be more laid-back, because most people here are,” says Green.
