Eliminating Duplicate assistance on Caye Caulker
The Hands of Love, Il Pelicano, the Caye Caulker Soup Kitchen and the C.C.V.C. representatives held a 4 hour meeting to cross check list from all parties. If you are on the Caye Caulker Soup Kitchen list, you will not be allowed to get groceries from the Arms of Love nor the C.C.V.C. list. If you are getting groceries from the pantry program from the Government of Belize, you will be automatically disqualified for any assistance from any of the local assistance program. This was a collective decision in an attempt to try and provide assistance for the most vulnerable for as long as possible. Sadly some people have been abusing the local systems and some controls are needed to ensure all these entities can sustain the programmes for as long as necessary. We ask for your kind understanding in this matter. With this said, tomorrow the Chinese Community in collaboration with the C.C.V.C will hand out groceries tomorrow at the basketball court at 5:00p.m. from a list to avoid dublications.

Some strange things have been known to happen at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH), but what recently happened to a senior citizen who went to the hospital for treatment is particularly disturbing.

Belize in 2 more months of State of Emergency
Like the House of Representatives which met yesterday with only 7 members, there was a Special Meeting of the Senate today with only four senators. The purpose of the Senate meeting was to consider a government motion to extend the COVID-19 State of Emergency. The meeting got underway with four senators. There were two senators from the government side —Leader of Government Business, Hon. Senator Godwin Hulse, and Senator Hon. Michael Peyrefitte; while one senator, Hon. Michel Chebat, represented the Opposition People’s United Party, and Hon.

At about 6:00 this morning, Julian Ebanks, 31, a laborer of Bainsville, Hattieville, located at Mile 17 on the George Price Highway, was walking home after having gone along the highway to buy cigarettes.

Forest fires raging in western and southern Belize
Forest fires have been raging and burning up large tracts of lands in western and southern Belize for many days now. These forest fires, thousands of them, are burning in several Central American countries and in Southern Mexico. According to the Government of Belize, there are 237 forest fires burning in Belize. In Belize, the central government, town councils and firefighting experts from different NGOs are all teaming up together to combat the estimated 230-odd forest fires. One large fire that is raging in the Vaca Reserve in western Belize is posing an immediate threat to the residents of the twin towns of San Ignacio and Santa Elena.

Guatemala gets 6-month extension to file “Memorial” for ICJ case
The Agent for the Republic of Guatemala at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) requested a 1-year extension to file its pleadings in its territorial, insular and maritime claim against Belize. The Agent for the Government of Belize objected to Guatemala’s 1-year request, in a letter dated April 15, 2020. The Belize Agent told the ICJ that two (2) more months would be sufficient time. The ICJ, however, was able to broker a middle ground and offered Guatemala a 6-month extension.

Government relaxes some state of emergency measures ahead of 2-month extension
There has not been any new confirmed case of the novel coronavirus since April 13, and 5 out of the 18 persons who had tested positive for COVID-19 have recovered, and the remaining patients are at home recovering. Deaths in Belize from the coronavirus remain at 2 out of the 18 confirmed cases. With the two areas where community spread of the virus was suspected, in the Belize and Cayo Districts, producing no new positive tests, government has decided to relax some of the measures it implemented in the National State of Emergency.

At about 9:00 Saturday night, February 22, Walter Ezekiel Usher, 33, of Rio Bravo Crescent, Belize City, was talking to a friend of his, in front of his house in Port Loyola, when two men rode up on a motorcycle and one of them fired at him. Usher was hit in the head and body. One of the bullets that were fired, however, strayed and struck a woman, Joyce Edwards Ramclam, 61, of Punta Gorda, who was a passenger in a vehicle that was traveling on the same street, heading to her daughter’s house in the area. The gunmen then rode away on the motorcycle.

Westline lays off 45 workers due to COVID-19
The effects of COVID-19 continue to impact the lives of people in the country. Tens of thousands of persons had already lost their jobs due to the collapse in the tourism industry and other enterprises as a result of the pandemic. Now, 45 workers of Westline Bus Company who were laid off this week have been added to the ranks of the unemployed. The announcement was made on Friday. The management of Westline said that due to drastically reduced revenue the company is no longer able to keep on all their workers and has had to lay off 90% of its workforce. The company is now operating with a skeleton staff, and those workers who remain, will get a pay cut.

It is estimated that he had been in the water for about 45 to 60 minutes.

Editorial: Only WE can keep our country from going into LOCKDOWN again
On April 1, 2020, because of a disease called COVID-19 that is sickening people and causing deaths across the globe, the Government of Belize declared a state of emergency for the entire country for one month. During this month the borders of Belize were closed, the movements of our people were severely restricted, and the businesses in the country that were not considered essential were closed down. This disease is causing our people much suffering. We would have been suffering even without the lockdown in our country because COVID-19 has stopped people from traveling, and thousands of our people who were employed in the tourism industry lost their jobs. This is a bad, bad time in Belize.

Belize City Council helping to fight COVID-19
Mayor Bernard Wagner and the Belize City Council have been exploring multiple ways to contribute to the fight against COVID-19. On Friday he met with the media to discuss one of the council’s most recent projects to provide new coronavirus testing booths for some of the major hospitals and clinics in the country. Through a partnership between the Council and multiple donors Mayor Wagner, via the efforts of Ivan Copo and Eric’s Welding Services from Belmopan, was able to produce four 50″ x 48″ testing booths. Two of the structures were issued to the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital, while one was given to the Matron Roberts Clinic and another to the Cleopatra White Clinic.

Greg Choc tells KREM Plus that Belize’s leadership lacks vision and COVID-19 gives us a chance to reset
Celebrated conservationist, attorney Mr. Greg Choc, told the host of KREM Plus, which is a show on Youtube that is hosted by Evan “Mose” Hyde, Jr., that Belize has been misdirected for 300 years by Western cultures, and that we have been trying to be what we are not. He said the pandemic gives us a chance to reset, to look at where we came from, and where we’re going. He said that we shouldn’t discount modern technology, but where we’re going must include our traditional way of life, living in harmony with the land, for this way of life has sustained us for a thousand years.

Belize at 5th place in countries most ready to exit COVID-19 lockdown
Using 13 publicly available information indexes by governments regarding their response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the measures they implemented, Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford has been conducting a series of studies. In one of the studies having to do with which countries are most ready to exit their COVID-19 lockdown, Belize was rated at number 5. Interestingly, the Belize Government just passed a new law extending the country’s lockdown to two months. It is expected that tomorrow, Thursday, the Barrow government will introduce new Statutory Instruments which may provide some easing of restrictions under the national State of Emergency which came into effect on April 1.

House motion extends state of emergency by 2 months
A motion to extend the National State of Emergency for another 60 days was introduced in a Special Sitting of the House of Representatives this morning by Prime Minister Dean Barrow, who, after the House meeting, expressed surprise at the blistering criticism that was directed at his government from the Opposition side, because PUP leader, Hon. John Briceño, sits as co-chair of the National Oversight Committee, which had recommended the 60-day extension. Today’s House meeting was unusual in two respects: firstly, only a quorum of seven members of the House was present in order to observe the social distancing rules under the State of Emergency, and secondly, someone made the controversial decision to lock the media out of the proceedings.

Semi-pro rumblings; some ideas at the time
Below is a verbatim copy of a script of ideas formulated inside the Milpros camp, that were instrumental in our agitation and lobbying efforts with other teams towards formation of the first semi-pro football league in Belize. The Milpros vs San Pedro match-up referred to below was their first game played in the 1990-91 Belize City 1st Division competition on Sunday, November 11, 1990, marking Milpros’ return to football after a one-year hiatus. At the time of its writing, “semipro” was still just a dream.

Football Flashback 4: down memory lane with a few more names
We’re still having fun pulling out some names of players we haven’t seen or heard from in a long, long time; as well as retrieving the full names of a few we had only nicknames for. Below are a few more names of players we remembered, corrected (*), or were reminded of by those who found the time to contact us at amandalasports@yahoo.com or by cell phone text at 607-8616. Indeed, as you no doubt realized by now, this has become a trip down football memory lane, calling out the names of players we record as having played football in the 1st Division, then the highest level of football in Belize, and then in the semipro or professional league after 1991, which is presently the Premier League of Belize (PLB).

State of Emergency – disobedience of the law!
The debate over whether there should be an extended state of emergency is a rather interesting one. I say interesting because as an advocate from early March for a State of Emergency with drastic measures to close down our country so the virus COVID19 is not imported, I based my decision on the then need to prevent the entry of the virus. Since then, we now know that as early as 14th March, 2020, the virus was already here and that on the 19th of March, 2020, when the airport was finally locked down, the virus was already within our borders.

Maybe I was wrong
Ouch, my best efforts to keep my word count down didn’t get the job done, so I cut off the rather lengthy preamble which dealt with how I anguish over past failures, be they big or be they small. This story is long, despite my breaking off many threads as they began to unravel so that I could keep the focus on a single thread, a decision I made, why I made it, and why, yes, I do have some regret that, someone has held animosity toward me for it.

Swift, smart and bold COVID-19 strategies do pay-off: the case of selected countries with male-and-female-headed governments
While reviewing over the weekend the most recent reports and data on the COVID-19 epidemic around the world, my wife Mili injected an interesting question: who is doing better in managing this emergency of a pandemic —men or women as heads of government? I did not know, so I went to find out. And here are some data and observations on this gender leadership issue. The table below has the most recent data as of 25th April 2020 for 10 comparable countries, 5 of them led by males and another 5 led by females. All 10 countries are well-developed and flourishing democracies, with the USA being the biggest by far.

Desmond Roberts’ devious games
Before the time was up she had been relieved to see Jerome standing in the doorway. “Ready?” he had asked her, holding out his hand, and she had sprung up and put her hand in his and turned to say good-night to the gentleman who had not yet given her his name, although he had identified himself as Celia’s friend. He had struggled to stand up to bid them good-night, introducing himself as Roger Austin; and Jerome, acknowledging him with a nod, had returned his greeting while moving away with Jewel.

The world’s economic system is changing
Dear Editor, 40% of US oil rigs are offline. Vietnam, Chad, Brazil and members of OPEC are cutting their output of oil. About 50 million barrels of oil are going to storage in a week. Land-based storage is expected to finish by the end of May. This means there will be an oversupply of oil for at least a year, because if the world’s economy opens up, it will be slow and uncertain. Oil was the most traded commodity (about 4% of world GDP). The US is the worst hit both by the oil collapse and COVID-19.

Drug plane found in Bacalar, Mexico
Mexican marines of the 25th Infantry of the 11th Naval Zone, located in Chetumal, found a suspected drug plane in a remote area of the village of Ejido Salamanca, while conducting an anti-drug operation in the area. Today’s issue of DIARIO De Chetumal, an online Mexican newspaper, said that the search was based on intelligence that a suspected drug plane was in the area. The infantry went to the area in Bacalar, where they found the King Air-type airplane. During searches of the area, they found two motorcycles and a rifle, and further investigation led to four persons who have been arrested in connection with the landing of the plane.

What happened to this diver was even more incredible. As he swam over the reef and approached a collection of soft coral swaying in the current, a large dolphin swam right in front of him and began swimming around in circles, performing acrobatics and looking him right in the eye with what can only be interpreted as an invitation to play. The scuba diver holding the camera is a dive master named Nito, but he is known around the world as "Big Sexy". One of the most popular scuba masters in Belize, he has a serious fan club. Guests who come to Chuck & Robbie's Scuba Diving from all over the globe seek out this operation for their professionalism and dedication to safety.
