Authorities defy the law and lift No-Liquor ban on Good Friday
The decision to lift the law at the eleventh hour goes contrary to the two-week campaign that San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) had launched in the local media. In various ads, the SPTC warned business establishments and the general public about the prohibition of the sale of liquor from Thursday, April 2nd at midnight to Friday, April 3rd at midnight. Mayor of San Pedro Town Daniel Guerrero said that he was made aware of the decision to lift the ban when he began receiving calls from businesses who were not notified of the sudden amendment. The Mayor will be hosting a meeting with the Liquor License Board to gather all the details that led to the lifting of the law. He did say that he stood by the decision to uphold the law and will continue to promote a “dry Good Friday” as mandated by law. “I will stand on the side of the law, and if the law does not change by next year, I will continue to push for a dry Good Friday,” stated Guerrero. The Mayor also stated that he received multiple complaints of the sale of alcohol during the day on Good Friday, which he passed on to the police. He added that the police did report back indicating that inspections were carried out to ensure that the law was upheld.

The San Pedro Roman Catholic Primary School (SPRC) was the recipient of Blue Water Grill’s (BWG) second monthly donation.

The money was raised during the month of March as part of BWG’s monthly donation program, where patrons donate money for charities across the island. The total amount donated throughout the month is then matched by BWG. In March, BWG customers donated $1,214 which was matched 100%. The check was presented on Wednesday, April 1st to Teacher Rosela Guerrero. The school is very appreciative of the donation, as it will help to improve the children’s learning environment.
SPTC and SPVA organize two-day Beach Volleyball Tournament
San Pedro is a sport loving community and is always finding ways to promote different physical activities to athletes of all ages. As such, the San Pedro Volleyball Association (SPVA) partnered with the San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) to organize a two day beach volleyball tournament in front of Luna Loca Bar. The event coincided with the Easter holidays and encouraged both residents and visitors to participate. The two-day tournament saw female volleyball teams competing on the first game day and male volleyball teams competing on the second day. Cash, gifts and trophies where awarded to the top teams in each category. Sunday, April 5th saw seven male volleyball team competing in the beach volleyball tournament. Unlike the female category, the male teams only consisted of two members. It was a tight tournament with point differences being very narrow. But in the end it was the team made up of Jason Garay and Gustavo Morataya who faced off against the team made up of Ronnie Sosa and Badyr Sajia in the final match. After a long battle on the sandy court, the win went to Garay and Morataya. Sosa and Sajia had to settle for a close second.

Read Prime Minister Barrow's Presentation to the II CEO Summit in Panama here
Hon. Dean Barrow’s Remarks at the Second CEO Summit of the Americas Panama, 8-10th April, 2015. Bridging the Americas: Productive Integration for Inclusive Development The topic we are dealing with is a large one. But the organizers have tried to be helpful by identifying the sub-areas on which they want to focus. These have been described as "opportunities for promoting investment, facilitating trade and fostering development, in particular in agribusiness, finance, information technology and public infrastructural sectors, as well as active participation of the private sector in the social development of our nations". Now that is a mouthful. And I am not sure that it does not in fact further expand rather than compress the subject. I shall nevertheless try both to follow its markers and remain within the allotted time. But to do that I have had to further distill the theme. I will therefore be concentrating principally on the modalities and strategies necessary to optimize our efforts at the level of regional economic groupings, which groupings are the precursor to Hemispheric integration.

Belize Fishing Report March 22, 2015 - March 28, 2015 Report
Another good weather week with moderate winds, fair amounts of sun with general success with all species. Jack, Jeff, Elizabeth, Charlie, William Travis, Munroe, Alec, Sled Bruce, Jim ,David and everyoone else that fished all had their fill of bonefish - the silver ghost of the flats. We have more bonefish per square mile here than anywhere else in the world! Seeing bonefish is both an art and just plain practice. A good pair of polarized amber colored sunglasses helps most people key in to the different looks a bonefish has. On a nice white sandy bottom a fish that is coming right towards you is pretty visible to most anglers. The top of their back is slightly darker as you look down along the length of their body. Once that same fish turns sideways to you it disappears! The sides of a bonefish are mirrors that reflect the bottom creating the perfect camouflage.
Update on Pierre Trudeau (Belize Bird Rescue)
For the many who have been asking for an update on Pierre Trudeau (known to BBR staff as 'Chunk' because that's how he likes his food!) He's doing well, finally integrated with the other Mealys - and the great news is that Buzz is back after a spell in solitary while his boy-hormones calmed down. Chunk's release prognosis is not great: the eye will never heal, and although that's not a deal-breaker, he does have other issues alongside. Time will tell, but for now, at least he seems contented.

Killer Waylaid "Judas" Rhamdas With Wife and Child
Last night at the top of the news we told you about a murder that happened on Albert Street West, just down the street from our studio. Tonight police have a suspect detained - a suspect who was positively identified by security camera footage. He waylaid 25 year old Mark Rhamdas at his home to kill him - even if it meant doing it in front of his common law wife and young child. Daniel Ortiz has more:.. Daniel Ortiz reporting Up until about 5:15 p.m., 25 year-old Mark Rhamdas and his family were socializing on the verandah of their Albert Street home, through this alley off Albert Street West. About 20 minutes later, he left the house on his motorcycle to pick up his girlfriend 21-year-old Etheline Mejia from work. He took his 4 year-old son with him, and at just a few minutes before 6:00, he was returning on the motorcycle, and he had his girlfriend and his son with him as passengers. They were halfway through the alley, just a short distance from his house, when a gunman who had been lurking around, ambushed them.
San Ignacio Dead Man Is Coast Guard Officer
An unidentified man was murdered in San Ignacio and Police need your help to identify him. But this is the only picture they have of him - and they begged us to put it on air - so that they can come up with an ID. He was apparently beaten and left for dead on Holy Saturday when he was picked up by police at around 1:27 a.m. with an injury to the head. He never regained consciousness and died yesterday at the KHMH. So now, it's another murder that police have to solve, but they need his family to come forward and identify him. This afternoon, the Deputy Commanding Officer of San Ignacio Police spoke with us today via phone about what they have been able to establish in the case so far: Insp. Reymundo Reyes, Deputy Commander, Cayo Formation "The information is that on Saturday 4th April, sometime around 1:27am, information was received from the San Ignacio police, of a male person laying on the ground by the Welcome Center area of San Ignacio Town. Police visited the scene and found a male person in an unconscious state with head injuries.
OW Prisoner Makes Mad Dash
A prisoner escaped from police in Orange Walk today. At around 1:45, 37 year old Angel Torres was being taken to prison after he was convicted in the Orange Walk Magistrate's court, convicted of assaulting his brother. But before he could leave Orange Walk - Torres made a run for freedom. It happened at the speed bump for the Tower Hill Bridge. Police ran after him, but he escaped into the bushes and then into a pond that connects to the New River. Reports say police fired shots at him, but Torres still escaped. Tonight, police are still looking for him - but did not have a picture to share.
Will Rawell Remain on FFB Executive?
Last night we told you about Rawell Pelayo's plea bargain in a New York Southern District Courtroom. On June 30, 2014, he pleaded guilty to "conspiring to violate the narcotics laws of the United States." In October of 2014, he was given a two-year sentence and then deported to Belize earlier this week. He cannot return to the United States but he took his plea and spent 21 months in custody. Here in Belize he faces no charge - but does have to check in with police weekly as is standard for deportees. His still holds his seat on the FFB which was supported by a four to three vote of the Football Congress, which is the highest decision making authority in the Federation. But, there is some question now as to whether Pelayo will be able to hold on to seat now that it is known that he pleaded guilty to narcotics smuggling.
Pastor Kwako Got Caught
African Pastor Wilberforce Kwako arrived in Belize with a forged passport, and tonight, he's in the custody of Belizean law enforcement. Kwako, a resident of the West African country of Ghana, arrived in the country yesterday via a flight from El Salvador, just after 9 a.m. When he arrived at the immigration check-in section, the officer on duty referred him to the Supervisor for Secondary inspection, which is standard practice with citizens coming from that country. When he was asked, he presented the immigration supervisor with a Ghanaian passport which identified him as Yaw Mensah. This person had supposedly been granted a US Visa, which would have expired last year. After closer inspection, the supervisor realized that this passport document had been altered. After it was tested using technical equipment, the supervisor realized that the original owner's photograph had been removed, and Kwako's photo was then added in. The passport was then restitched and then re-laminated.
President Luke Stays On

PUP Talk Show Host Albert Vaughan To Make No Case Submission for Loitering
In August of 2014 when the sanitation workers did their famous garbage strike - PUP talk show host Albert Vaughan was right there on the frontline - doing what might charitably be called "media advocacy." But, police said he was loitering in a public place. And so, he joined the 41 sanitation workers who were arrested and eventually charged with taking part in an unlawful public meeting and municipal littering. Those charges were dropped by executive decree or something like that after the Prime Minister swooped in to save the situation. But Vaughan's charge was never dropped and the his trial started in the Magistrate's Court a few weeks ago. Vaughan is claiming that he was just a media workers, acting as a reporter for Vibes Radio. His attorney Kareem Musa told us they have no case to answer. Kareem Musa, Attorney for Albert Vaughan "We have had to go through the process of this legal wrangling between the police and the prosecution and Mr. Vaughan and they eventually charged him with loitering in a public place, even though he was out there carrying out his lawful business as a reporter like many of you, but none of you were charged with any offenses.
Culture Critic Yasser Bemoans City Plan
Last night we told you about the launch of the city rejuvenation project that focuses on reconstructing the House of Culture as well as upgrading other key areas in downtown Belize City. While it has been approved and has received a resounding applause from stakeholders, one cultural critic says it stinks. Yesterday former NICH President, Yasser Musa went on a facebook rant against the project, calling it "retrograde, racist and disturbing." He continues by saying "The crowd called NICH must mark April 8th as a celebration of colonial and myopic thinking." We caught up with Musa today and he explained why he considers this project an affront to Belizean history and identity. Yasser Musa, Artist "To be pulling a very sick stunt like this is completely, in my view, retrograde, it is racist and it is something that should be thoroughly condemned. That colonial museum idea is stupid. With fifteen million dollars, that is what they are spending on a colonial museum. With that money there should be a culture fund that artists, musicians, writers, researchers, historians, teachers can access small grants to go and do their projects.
Guats With Thousands Of Xate Leaves In Chiquibul
A month ago, we showed you the new crop of FCD rangers trained and ready to protect the Chiquibul National Park from Guatemalan poachers. Well, they're already delivering results, and tonight 2 Guatemalans from the village of La Rejoya are at the San Ignacio Police Station, awaiting formal charges after they were caught poaching xate leaves. A group of rangers were on a patrol in Chiquibul yesterday in the area known as Cubetas, when they came in contact with a Guatemalan man by the name of Transito Esquivel. He had several who sacks of Fishtail Xate leaves, which is one of the desired species inside the Chiquibul. The officers detained Esquivel and he escorted them to his camp which he has been using to gather the leaves. The officers arrived and after taking coordinates, they realized that this camp was 200 kilometres in Belizean territory.
US Navy Her For Humanitarianism
The US Navy is here in Belize on a humanitarian mission. It's called the Continuing Promise mission 2015 and over 1,000 crew members arrived this morning on the U.S Naval Hospital ship - USNS COMFORT. 2 Navy helicopters brought over 100 pallets of medical supplies and sporting equipment to be distributed across the country. Today we met with the Mission Commander, Captain Sam Hancock and he told us how this visit will significantly enhance services provided to Belizeans and further build ties between the US and Belize. Captain Sam Hancock, Mission Commander, Continuing Promise "We have quite a large amount, this is just the beginning of the supplies that'll be coming in but there's medical supplies that will utilize at the medical sites. There is engineering supplies for the building sites where we will be doing some fairly small engineering projects and then there is also a lot of donated goods that came with our NGO partners that some are home-based in Belize that we've also brought their teams on board.
Surgeries On Comfort
As you heard in the interview, medical services will also be provided including treatment and surgeries. Screening for surgeries was done for over 100 patients at the KHMH today and as early as tomorrow morning these patients will be taken on the USNS COMFORT for their procedures. Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon Captain William Todd told us about the process behind getting these patients ready for these medical procedures. Captain William Todd, Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon "The ship is very unique, there are actually two of them and we call them National Treasures. They are converted oil tankers and they are nearly a thousand feet long and over a hundred feet wide. They are both identical and the one that we have on this coast is the USNS Comfort. It is staffed up, so we have twelve operating rooms. When the ship is at a maximum capacity for patients, we can take up to a thousand patients if we are configured for staffing for that.

Authorities have confirmed that Torres made the mad dash as the police truck was passing the Toll Bridge speed bump. After police were alerted of his escape they pursued him but he took made a mad dash into the bushes and swam across a pond that connects to the New River. It is alleged that police fired two shots in his direction as he swam across but their efforts to subdue him were futile.
