Wildtracks Update: Life in the Nursery: Meet Charlie!
Charlie is a young Yucatan black howler monkey, and part of the Wildtracks Nursery Troop. In June 2019, Charlie was found separated from his troop on a fallen tree in an area that had just been bulldozed to make way for sugar cane. Charlie was very timid when he arrived at Wildtracks, and very upset about taking milk from a human. The only things that calmed him were his hammock and grapes! He started coming out of his shell when he was introduced to Obi, another member of the Nursery...and from then on, he hasn't looked back!

Climate change is exacerbating the risk of flooding in the area.

PUP Pulls Massive Crowd
On Wednesday's news, we showed you the NTUCB's good governance march. They were making it clear to all political parties that the biggest thing on the minds of their members going in the 2020 general elections is the issue of corruption. At the NTUCB's rally, Opposition Leader John Briceno made a bold claim that his party would be able to mobilize 10,000 Belizeans to show that the unions aren't the only ones unhappy with the Barrow Administration's status quo. Here at this newsroom, we were skeptical of this boast, but yesterday, the PUP mobilised with the kind of mass street support, and flexed with the kind of muscle that it hadn't shown in decades to send a message loud and clear to Belmopan.

UDP, Leadership Carousel Continues
And while the PUP showed sufficient and surplus muscle, machinery - and let's not forget, money, the UDP continues to drift embarrassingly out in the political deep - still without a consensus leader to replace the retiring Dean Barrow. the word coming out of this weekend is that Cayo North's Omar Figueroa will be the man - and this picture - taken on Saturday seemed to show broad based support. But we're told it was just picture taken at a fundraiser for St. Andrew's Primary school in Cayo - not a caucus to endorse him.

Should Hon. Bev Have Gotten Upgraded to Full Minister?
We spoke to both Montero and Williams at a groundbreaking for the Coastal Road Paving project - which we'll tell you all about later in the news. We also asked Williams about what some perceive to be a recent slight. She was recently elected second deputy leader of the UDP - and is Minister of State in the Ministry of Immigration. Fair enough, that's usually the role for a first term representative, but what happens when that rep is also the third most senior person in the ruling party? We asked Williams about that today in view of the fact that another minister of state - Omar Figueroa was upgraded to full minister last week:...

President Of The Senate Proposes Campaign Finance Reform
And while most of the UDP is busy doing political contortions to get over and around this divisive John Saldivar issue, President of the Senate Darrell Bradley ain't got no time for that. He spent the weekend coming up with draft campaign finance legislation. It's based on the US model and integrates other elements. And, right now Bradleys ays it's the only conversation that Belize needs to have if it really wants to get rid of money politics:

24 Year Old Man Killed, 61 Year Old Woman Shot
A 33-year-old man is dead and a 61-year-old woman partially paralyzed. That's after a pair of motorcycle riders rained bullets over Rio Bravo Crescent. The man, Ezekiel Usher, was hanging out in front of his neighbour's house. The woman, Joyce Edwards, was riding by in the back seat of her son in law's car. Tonight, he's in the morgue, and she's in the hospital partially paralysed. Here's that story. On Saturday night at 10:00, the unthinkable happened in Belize City, an innocent woman visiting from out district, a woman whose daughter says she rarely ever leaves her PG home, was shot in the Faber's Road extension area of Belize City.

Man Allegedly Killed By Nephew
43-year-old Shane Budram was killed in cold blood on Friday night, the alleged gunman was his nephew. Budran who has been in the news over the years for crimes such as robbery, gang affiliation, and attempted murder is said to have been making efforts to change his life. Neighbours say he had become somewhat of a father figure to young boys in the area. And it was his newfound put to right attitude that put him in the line of fire. This morning Cherisse Halsall headed to Jump Street to find out more.

Elderly Canadian Killed?
An elderly Canadian national is dead after events that police believe involve foul play. 78-year-old Canadian James Slemp - who lived off the Hopkins Road - was reported missing by a friend on Friday. And this morning police found his body in the Fresh Water Creek adjoining his homes. But it was no drowning. Head of National crimes Investigation Myvette told us more. ACP Joseph Myvett, Head, NCIB: "On Friday, shortly before midnight, one Thomas Pou visited Hopkins Police Station and he reported that his friend, one James Slemp..."

Raging Fire On Raleigh Street
A family in Belize City lost their home in a fire on Saturday morning. It happened Raleigh Street in the St. Martin's area, and cell phone footage captured the fire in progress, showing a wooden 2-bedroom home completely engulfed in flames. We are told that it was being rented by Sharon Zelaya, her husband, her daughter, and her two grandchildren, ages 2 and 4. At this time, the authorities believe that the children were playing with matches in a room when which for out of control and cause that part of the house to catch fire. It quickly spread, and although the occupants were able to get out safely, they lost everything.

Coastal, The Richest Road Ever
In 1986, a team of rugged forest officers from the Melinda Forest Station took 5 months in the deep bush to cut a line from Gales Point Manatee to La Democracia at mile 31 on the Western Highway. And that line that they cut, gave birth to the Coastal Highway. In the 30 plus years since, the Coastal has remained the most tempting, but ultimately frustrating shortcut between central and southern Belize. If you're going from Belize to Dangriga - it cuts about 28 miles off the trip. But, with the road as rough as it has been, you might get a puncture, or, worse, you might just slide off the washboard surface. And don't even think of going coastal in the rainy season!

Funders Defend Choosing Imer As Contractor
As we have reported, the contracts were awarded to the joint venture firm of Imer Hernandez Development Co. Ltd./ along with a Mexican firm, Construcciones y Carreteras, in the amount of $62.9 million Belize dollars for Lot 1 and $70.2 million Belize dollars for Lot 2. Today, Hernandez represented the consortium - and we had to ask the funders about the contractor who has become a lighting rod for controversy:

Hon. Rene Not Ready to Hit The Road
Today's event was to start the works off and it should be completed in 36 months. That led us to ask Works Minister Montero about whether he will be around for the opening Jules Vasquez- Reporter: "Is it of some concern to you or some pain that you might not be around when they open it because maybe the UDP won't win the next general elections."

A Weekend Of Rampant Sexual Assault
It was a weekend of rampant sexual assault as 2 women and a minor were raped in the Cayo district. The perpetrators in these rapes range in relation to the women as a stranger, a BDF soldier, and a common-law-husband. ACP Myvette told us more about the ugly incidents.

Guilty of Robbing Meatpie Mecca
27-year-old Michael Arnold, the man accused of robbing the elderly owner of the popular Pou's Meat Pies in Belize City, has been convicted. Chief Magistrate Sharon Frazer has decided to grant him leniency with a fine, and a suspended prison sentence. The incident happened on January 5th, 2016. 58-year-old owner Maria Pou had recently collected $500 in rent money from a tenant. She didn't keep that money for very long because shortly after it was handed over, she was attacked by a man who got into a scuffle with her.

Our Late February Weather has Been BEYOND Gorgeous

Bacalar: low-key stunner in south Yucatán wants to keep it that way
There are places in Mexico that retain their charm yet swarm with tourists – think of the town of Sayulita on the west coast. Then there are places swarming with tourists that have become charmless – like the hotel zone in Cancún. At this point Bacalar — located on a finger lake of the same name just above the Belize border in Quintana Roo — is still so stunning that it feels you’ve stumbled upon some magical land. Unlike similar places in Mexico, its “lake of seven colors” is surprisingly quiet, the water breathtakingly clear and the prices incredibly modest. You can rent an entire house right on the water for US $100 a night (less in the off season) and head out to one of the local balnearios for a day of swimming and picnics for about $2.50.

Modern technology reveals old secrets about the great, white Maya road
Did a powerful queen of Cobá, one of the greatest cities of the ancient Maya world, build the longest Maya road to invade a smaller, isolated neighbor and gain a foothold against the emerging Chichén Itzá empire? The question has long intrigued Traci Ardren, archaeologist and University of Miami professor of anthropology. Now, she and fellow scholars may be a step closer to an answer, after conducting the first lidar study of the 100-kilometer stone highway that connected the ancient cities of Cobá and Yaxuná on the Yucatan Peninsula 13 centuries ago.
