It is saddening to reflect that no great ancient races inhabited these lovely Isles, that no great man ever lived, and laboured, and worked, and fought, and died, and left a name for posterity to honour and to cherish as a ‘household word’; that no time-honoured tower or world-famed temple, or pilgrim haunted shrine ever stood on yonder cape—in short, that the past is all a blank.

Dangriga was known as Stann Creek at that time.

Well this is quite interesting. I was transferred to the Banana Industry in 1974 to become the Office Manager for the Riversdale Company that actually represented the FFyes Company in England I was sent to study for 8 years in Lima Nueva Honduras the Operational center for all the affiliates Banana Companies in the World . I was graduated as Operations Manager and Director of Quality Control and return back to the Banana Industry and trained others also become quality control inspectors I resign in 1982 for personal reason and for what I stood up for my promise to the workers I had trained. No one wanted to see me leave but it was worth it because after a certain period of time what I had stood up for was implemented and guys I had trained was give their rightful place in the Industry. And looking back I knew I had set a Precedent that Belizean should be given priority first before hiring of foreigners if they are worthy of the position that is vacant. Joseito Sosa
