Saldivar took stacks of US$10,000: court testimony
Yesterday was one of the most momentous days in the political career of Minister John Saldivar. That would have been hard to guess, however, from the way he sneaked into the Belize Civic Center from the rear entrance, and his continuing effort to avoid members of the media, who took up positions outside the Belize Civic Center at the front entrance, because the UDP, which was holding its national convention inside the facility, had banned the media from entering the grounds of the convention.
Although Saldivar emerged as the newly elected leader of the ruling United Democratic Party (UDP), he could not hide from the torrent of evidence coming out of the Washakie fraud trial in Salt Lake City, Utah, today.
“Big Bad John” crushes Patrick!
The United Democratic Party (UDP) filled the Belize City Civic Center with its history-making national convention to elect a new leader and executive — an event from which the media was completely banned.
The media was barred from entering the convention grounds (inside the Belize Civic Center) until the official convention business was finished. The UDP, however, allowed observers from the United States Embassy inside.
When the results of the delegates’ voting were announced this afternoon, it became clear that Hon. Patrick Faber (Collet) and his team were demolished by Hon. John Saldivar (Belmopan) and his team, which won the day handily.
Patrick Faber resigns as Deputy Prime Minister
Yesterday at the United Democratic Party’s national convention, Deputy Prime Minister Patrick Faber and his team suffered a crushing defeat by National Security Minister John Saldivar and Team Saldivar.
If the former UDP chairman, Alberto August, did not win the deputy chairman seat, it would have been a complete and total wipeout for Faber and his team.
Notwithstanding Faber’s defeat, when Saldivar called him to the podium, Faber appeared magnanimous in defeat and pledged his support to the new UDP leader, Saldivar.
Ariana Bejerano, 31, murdered in her home
A 31-year-old American woman was murdered in her apartment in San Ignacio. American national Ariana Iris Jones Bejerano was found lying face-down on the floor of her apartment in pools of her blood. She had been stabbed multiple times in the chest and abdomen, and a mattress had been thrown on top of her.
Her boyfriend, Jovan Moody, 23, a Ladyville resident, told police that at about 6:00 Saturday morning, he went to see Ariana at her apartment and on entering, he saw the bloody scene, and Bejerano’s nude body. He then immediately informed the police.
Father and daughter die in Southern Highway accident
A traffic accident which occurred between Miles 71 and 72 on the Southern Highway at about 6:20 this morning, claimed the lives of Erlina Teul Cal, 24, a domestic of Bella Vista, Toledo District, and her father, Pashal Teul, 48, a farmer of Bella Vista.
They were thrown out of the pickup pan of the Ford Ranger in which they were riding when the driver, Cal’s husband, Jose Cal, lost control of the pickup, which flipped and landed on its right side.
Elena Reina, victim of Flamboyant Street fire, dies one month after severe burns
Elena Reina, 36, suffered severe burns to her body while sleeping on a bed in a house that was engulfed in flames during a fire that destroyed two houses on Flamboyant Street on Thursday, January 9.
Reina, a mother of three children, was rushed to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, where she was admitted in a critical condition and was given a slim chance of survival. She then slipped into a coma.
Lord Michael Ashcroft submits application to join re-districting case
The Belize Peace Movement, the Belize Progressive Party and Vision Inspired by the People have all teamed up and brought a lawsuit against the Government of Belize for its failure to conduct re-districting as is required by the Constitution of Belize.
The lawsuit may have another claimant, because Lord Michael Ashcroft has filed an application asking to be allowed to join the redistricting lawsuit as an interested party.
The disparity in the size of the constituencies makes redistricting a necessary exercise to bring the 31 constituencies as near as possible in size with each other.
Lockhart Bevans, 51, beaten severely after gambling bout

Bevans’ attackers took him to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, where they abandoned him.
Man with counterfeit money robbed, then busted with counterfeit cash
On February 7, Darnell Puerto made a report to the police that on the same day, while he was going to visit his girlfriend at her house at the corner of Vernon Street and Mopan Street, he was held up at gunpoint and was robbed of $1,500, two gold chains and a Samsung cellular phone.
Puerto said that the money and other items amounted to $7,750 in total value. He identified the robber as Kenyon Flores, 19.
Boy, 16, charged for La Popular Bakery robbery
A 16-year-old boy has been charged with aggravated robbery, pending arraignment at the Belize City Magistrate’s Court.
La Popular Bakery, located on Cemetery Road in front of the busy First Stop Taxi Stand, with a bus stop near it, was held up and robbed at about 7:30 Wednesday night by two thieves who got away with an undisclosed amount of money.
The thieves escaped in a getaway vehicle.
Editorial: Betraying the people is a very bad thing
Since past behavior is a good gauge of what one will do in the future, it is a near given that when the United Democratic Party (UDP) is booted from office, which will happen at some time, late into election night they will be hollering about how dishonest, corrupt the People’s United Party (PUP) is. The UDP came to power in 2008 hollering about the dishonesty of the PUP, and they have never stopped.
The UDP screams about dishonesty but is itself very dishonest, and the members know it. Most members of the UDP openly acknowledge that there are crooks in Cabinet. The UDP once said of itself that it was above corruption, but now it says that corruption will always be with us, and that they are corrupt because we, the humble people, are corrupt.

Two beautiful young ladies who were students at St. John’s College Sixth Form visited us a couple times when the highly controversial baby UBAD, a black-conscious organization, opened its office at #45 Hyde’s Lane in Belize City in March/April of 1969. One of the young ladies was named Florence, and she was darker-skinned than the other young lady, whose name was Maxine.
The light-skinned Maxine had a major problem dealing with UBAD’s blanket description of all complexions of Belizeans as “Black,” and it may be that wherever she is, more than a half century later, this may still be a problem for her, as it is for most Belizeans of mixed European and African descent.
Saldivar traveled to Miami to pick up $50,000, Jacob Kingston testified
Jacob Kingston is continuing his testimony in the Lev Dermen trial in Salt Lake City, Utah. Today marks the 4th day of Kingston’s testimony and once more, damning information has emerged involving the newly elected United Democratic Party leader, Minister John Saldivar. Information coming out of the trial is that Minister Saldivar had told Lev Dermen in 2014 that he needed money for a re-election campaign for him and three or four of his colleagues, whose names were not mentioned.
Prime Minister Dean Barrow call emergency cabinet meeting tomorrow

There are speculations in the air tonight that the cabinet will discuss the way forward for the Barrow Government, in the wake of allegations of impropriety made against Minister of National Security, John Saldivar. The allegations were made in court testimonies over the last two days, in US federal district court, in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The search for my father was long and hard, but now it is over
On December 22, 1969, my mother, Marilyn Young, gave birth to me at Belize City Hospital in Belize City. Marilyn’s cousin was the great boat builder, Simeone Young. I was the second of what would be seven children that my mother would give birth to. My birth certificate has a blank space with a line through it where my father should have been listed. Starting at a young age, I would often ask my mother about my father. She would ignore me at first. If I asked too often, she would throw things at me and tell me to shut up. My deepest desire was to know my identity and who brought me into this world.
Bandits blast Wagiya, take over standings lead at Week 5 of PLB Closing Season
On the scoresheet totals of goals scored for and against, it looks like Belmopan’s Bandits Sport are in a class by themselves, with a whopping 21 goals scored versus only 1 given up, for a goal difference of +20, in 4 games played so far in the Premier League of Belize (PLB) 2019-2020 Closing Season.

Dear John Saldivar – they keep falling out of the sky
The drug planes just keep falling out of the sky over Belize … and it is happening in an unprecedented number in the history of this country. I could surmise that we have never seen this phenomenon in Belize and it is incredible that not one of the occupants of these “suspected” narco-planes is ever caught and worse yet, the cargo is never found, in, or near, the aircraft. It is as if it is a well-coordinated exercise with local support and foreign agents and assets. Law enforcement authorities are absolutely clueless or helpless in bringing a stop to this criminality.
Brodies North commits to Belizean literature
Mr. Henry Young, a three-time area representative for the UDP (Port Loyola: 1984-1998) and two-time minister of government, loves to share the sea breeze and his hospitality at Big Bird’s Isle with his friends and guests, largely for camaraderie, but also to push agendas, some very tikilish, to forward our nation. I do get the honor sometimes, yes, humble me, and on my most recent visit, on Thursday last, while I enjoyed the invigorating sea breeze, which he doesn’t own but has access to, and cold Belikin and a super delicious fish burger, on the house, he told me about his latest initiative.
Chapter 31- More Jewel and Jerome …
On Sonia’s return to duty at the hospital in April, it appeared as if a benign administration confined her work schedule to the daytime hours, a cause for comment among her colleagues, led by Gertrude Atkins, of course, who attributed this to favouritism, declaring that she bet that if anybody else had tried a “stunt” like Sonia’s she would have been turned out a mile-a-minute; but that from long ago it could be seen that the powers-that-be showed preference to her. It had been quiet Miss Jewel who had responded to this accusation with the calm comment that maybe this had been because of her outstanding efficiency and willingness, marking the adoption on her part of a more visibly protective role towards Sonia.
China, Russia to defy US sanctions over support to Venezuela

A Visit to Our Island’s Green Iguana Sanctuary and A House That Is Art
An Easy Way To See Some BIG Green Iguanas right in San Pedro Town and…A House Straight out of Swiss Family Robinson!
Here on Ambergris Caye, people see the green iguanas sunning in the mangroves when they are on a boat stopping at the gas station at the back side of town. It’s a frequent tour stop in the San Pedro lagoon.
But now you can drive up in a golf cart or bike or even on foot. Head north on Back Street – until you get to the stop sign. (Hol Chan Marine Reserve Office will be on your right.) Go straight, thru the stop sign – the road is now a dirt road. Just around the bend and…
Look for this gate…
There were piles of fruit and even habaneros. Crazy to imagine…but iguanas LOVE hot peppers.
Cave Kayaking in Belize/ Nohoch Che’en Caves Branch
Cave tubing is the popular choice of activity done by tourists whenever they visit Belize, but few have experienced cave kayaking. It holds the advantage that you can use the kayaks to run the whole section of caves while with cave tubing the runs must be extremely short as this river (Caves Branch River) is too shallow to allow an unhampered float. The caves of Belize were sacred to the Mayans and Nohoch Cheʼen is one with exceptional Mayan artifacts inscribed into the cave formations along the river.

This kind of birding is raising money for children’s education in Belize and more specifically in Seine Bight. If you are not familiar, Seine Bight is a village on the Placencia Peninsula. It is north of Placencia town and just over a couple of miles south of Maya Beach.
First off if you are a bit unsure, a Parrothead is a fan of the popular “tropical” musician Jimmy Buffet. Typical Parrothead fashion includes a Hawaiian shirt, khaki shorts, flip flops, and sunglasses. It is a “lifestyle” and one of the top activities is sipping margaritas on the beach often at sunset.
Renting a Car in Belize
Whether you’re in one of the six districts or at one of the main islands, there are always car rental companies to be found. After you land at the Philip Goldson Int’l Airport, there are three different car rental businesses outside of the airport. You can easily go over to one of them, check out their prices and the types of cars available, and take your pick. Bear in mind that you will come across others, both on the highway as you leave the airport, and there are definitely more businesses you can choose from as there are a couple on the highway when you are leaving the airport and many more in each district. Car rental businesses are easy to find – you just have to ask a local or check our good pal Google.

Guatemalan Air Force Confiscates Drug Cartel’s Narco Jet – Watch Incredible Liftoff From Dirt Runway
Drug cartels have numerous methods to smuggle their illegal merchandise. Commercial vehicles, trains, boats, narco submarines, Los Pollos Hermanos batter buckets, and even medieval-style catapults. Another mode of transportation utilized by drug cartels are private narco jets, and we have a pretty impressive video as proof.
The amazing part is that the pilot of the small Hawker Siddley 125 business jet landed the plane in the jungle on a narrow, dirt runway, at night, none-the-less. Local residents in Belize, about eight miles from the makeshift landing strip, heard the plane flying above their community around 11 at night.
