SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo District, Friday, 31st August 2007:
Two young men from San Ignacio Town, accused of committing the indictable crime of aggravated burglary, are today on remand at the Hattieville prison.
San Ignacio police reports that it was shortly after 12 noon on Monday, 27th August 2007 when Veronica Bautista, 36, domestic of a Santiago Juan Layout area of San Ignacio Town reported that whilst caretaking the mini shop of her Guatemalan friend Rosalinda Gabriel, a young man known to her
Emmanuel "Mangar"Willoughby, 17
as Cecilio Cho entered the store and asked to credit some items from the
mini shop on his mother's account. Bautista reportedly told him that she had no authority to grant the request and that he would have to wait until the shop owner returned from a short triptoMelchor, Guatemala.
Cho reportedly walked down the steps and as Bautista turned around to re-enter the house she came face to face with another male person in the kitchen, whom she knew as Mangar. He had a crowbar held by both hands which he used to hit her in the head.
Bautista reportedly fell to the floor in an unconscious state and when she

NOVELOS CONVENTION CENTER, Santa Elena Town, Cayo District, Friday, 24th August 2007:
As the nation prepares to commemorate the 209th anniversary of the Battle of St. Georges Caye Day on September 10th and the 26th Anniversary of Independence on September 21st under the unified team "Independent, Strong and Free, Belize Fi All Ah We", the festive mood is expected to move into high gear in the days and weeks ahead.
In the Cayo area, the celebration began this past Friday evening with the Annual Miss Queen of the West Beauty Pageant at the Novelos Convention Center in Santa Elena Town with a large gathering in attendance.
There were six lovely young ladies vying for the coveted title of Miss Queen of the West 2007-08. The evening's program began at 7:30 p.m., with the singing of the National
Anthem by former beauty queen, Conchita Moreno.
Mistress and Master of Ceremony for the occasion were the talented Aidita Arguelles and the articulate Gonzalo "Ombudsman" Rosado. Their first act for the evening was the introduction of the panel of judges which included Mrs. Isaura Chuc-Williams, teacher at Bishop Martin RC, Primary School; Mrs. Dorita Avella-Marin, Proprietor of Cayo Institute of Cosmetology and Mr. David Morey.
The all important task of tabulating the scores fell into the able hands of Nyana Harrison and Emil Pinelo.
The icebreaker then followed with the grand entrance and introduction
of the West Ms. Janine Lopez

regained consciousness she walked outside the house. She was bleeding from a large cut wound to the head and was immediately assisted by a neighbor who transported her to the San Ignacio hospital. She was issued with a pair of Medico Legal forms on which the medical officer on duty, Dr. Gonzalez, certified the injury as wounding.
The incident led to the detention of Cecilio Cho and Emmanuel "Mangar" Willoughby both 17 year old Belizean students residing in Santiago Juan Layout They were subsequently arrested and jointly charged for the indictable crime of acting together with a common purpose of committing aggravated burglary.
Both the accused appeared in San Ignacio's Magistrate Court on Thursday, 30th August 2007 where the charge was read against them. Magistrate Kathlene Lewis informed them that the matter will be heard on indictment in the Supreme. They were subsequently denied bail and were remanded to the Hattieville prison for the next court hearing on Tuesday, 25th September 2007.

Suicide Suspected In Death Of Guatemalan Woman
SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo District, Wednesday, 29th August 2007:
The body of a 16 year old girl is today inside the morgue at the San Ignacio Town hospital as it awaits transportation to Belize City for the legally required post mortem examination scheduled to be held on Thursday 30th August 2007.
San Ignacio Police reports that it was shortly after 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, 28th August when a report was received of an apparently dead body of a woman on a farm located on the outskirts of Esperanza Village in the Cayo District. Ateam of local Crime Investigation Branch officers accompanied by a Scenes of Crime technician rushed to
the area where they were directed to a farm house located about a mile off the Western Highway on GA Roe's San Miguel Citrus Farm.
Upon arrival, police were directed to a back kitchen where they encountered a woman lying face upwards on the ground foaming from the mouth and nose.
The motionless body was rushed to the San Ignacio Town hospital where it was officially pronounced dead by the medical officer on duty Dra. Helen Loaces.
The deceased was identified as 16 year old Reina Madely Villeda Barrientos, Guatemalan domestic residing on the farm. At the scene, police also encountered William Tzalam Bah, 21, Guatemalan

laborer who claimed to be the common law husband of the deceased.
Tzalam Bah informed the police that at around 1:00 p.m. that day he was at the company's Western Highway roadside office when his common law wife rode up on a bicycle with his lunch. He reportedly told her that she was late and since the lunchtime had passed he was no longer hungry. He reportedly told her to return to the house with the lunch. She jumped on the bicycle and reportedly rode back home. It was shortly after 3:00p.m. when Tzalam left work and returned to the farm house where he reportedly encountered his common law wife in the exact position in which she was found by the police.
Police reportedly found a white plastic gallon containing Round Up herbicide in the kitchen leading them to initially suspect that the deceased
might have taken a dose of the poison. An inspection of the body revealed no visible sign of violence therefore leading investigators to suspect that the deceased might have committed suicide which they say can only be ascertained by way of the post mortem examination.

JleUeM to- tU Sdtton,
Dear Editor;
We take this opportunity through the medium you provide to inform the Government of Belize; The Ministry of Education in general and the Minister of Education in particular that there is a whole lot of angry teachers out here.
One of the worse forms of abuses that can be perpetuated against any individual is to work that individual and after that individual has worked, that person does not receive promised compensation.
We were told to take a week from our vacation to enter the classroom for a week to train teachers in the use of the new text books. For this work we were promised a $300.00 stipend.
It is now over three weeks and we are still waiting to get paid. In Cayo, we visited Mr. Chan, he sent us to Mr. Cano, then Cano turned around and sent us back to Chan and the turn around continues.
Dear Editor;
As housewives we are often forced to stretch our dollars and so we shop at those places where we get more value for the money we spend.
We therefore keep a close watch on the price of those items that we regularly buy and so we automatically note those little increases here and there. Whenever we find that the price of an item has been increased at one store we look elsewhere to see if we can get that item cheaper. We have become accustomed to the regular 10 and 20 cents increases in the shelf prices of consumer goods. However I was totally unprepared for what confronted me this past Monday morning.
I was almost knocked off my feet when I saw the MASSIVE increase in the price of soap powder.
The price was $6.75 for a 2 kgs bag of Roma Soap Powder and when I went to get one off the shelf at my neighborhood grocery store the price was up to a whopping $8.25.
I did further checks and found out that the price for smaller bags of all soap powder has proportionately gone up.
We Want And Need Our Pay
With school opening up very soon, some of us had already budgeted this little extra change to get ready for the new school year.
We are now hearing that with the emergency situation in the north, the money that was promised to us is being diverted to the relief effort in the north.
While we sympathize with our fellow citizens up north and we want their lives to be restored to normal, it is the government that must shoulder the responsibility and not shift the load onto the backs of other equally struggling citizens.
We sincerely trust that the Government of Belize, the Mnistry of Education and the Minister himself will make good on the promise to compensate us as we have already labored for the small promised stipend.
While we continue to wait for the promised compensation we ask for our names not to be published.
00 Is Not What It Used To Be
It is no wonder that our shopping bags are getting smaller and smaller as time goes by. We often hear each other saying that $20.00 is not what it used to be.
While I am on this topic, I want to encourage all shoppers to carefully check the expiry dates on the goods we buy as I have noticed that some shopkeepers have become innovative and are now mixing expired goods with non-expired ones both on their shelves and in their freezers in an attempt to get one over the unsuspecting customer.
I also want to encourage Public Health Officials to continue monitoring this situation as they have been doing in the past. s/ Carmen Aldana San Ignacio, Cayo

Teacher Professional Development In Belize
Canada/Belize Rotary/Ministry Of Education
SANTA ELENA, Cayo, Monday 27th August 2007:
Twenty four teachers from Alberta, Canada were recently in Belize to initiate the first phase of a major Rotary project called "Teacher Professional Development in Belize".
The project is to instruct primary school teachers from Belize in new teaching methods and strategies and is slated to span a period of at least 3 years. It is a joint project between the Rotary Clubs of Belize, the Ministry of Education of Belize and 60 Rotary Clubs from Canada.
The 24 Canadian teachers were assigned to 8 centres across Belize for 2 weeks. Each centre had a specialist teacher in Language Arts; Mathematics; and Science. 45 Belizean teachers received instructions at each of the 8 centres foratotal of 360 "master"teachers all of whom will, in turn, train other teachers in Belize.
This joint education project is, in the words of Ross Tyson, District Governor (elect) of Rotary District 5370, Canada, "A first for Rotary International no other Rotary District in the world has conducted a major project in an entire country before."
the proj ect is being organized by the current Governor of 5370 District, Dave Taylor, and he hopes to provide 2,000 laptops for students in Belize in the first year.
The future benefits to Belizean teachers and students from the generosity of the Rotarians and government officials in Alberta, Canada is immense and the Rotary Club of San Ignacio, which is hosting the proj ect with the involvement of all Rotary Clubs in Belize, offers thanks on behalf of all Belizeans to these fine people who come here, some year after year, at their own expense, to assist in the development of our country.
Contributed by John Acott, Member of the Rotary Club of San Ignacio & Chairman of the Cayo Crimes Committee.
(L-R)Four of the key Rotarian players of the project.
Stephen Lathrop (Canada); Christopher Aird & Andre Lopez (San Ignacio) and Ross Tyson (Canada).
Another phase of this project entails the providing of a desktop computer to each of the 3 60 Belizean "master" teachers to allow on-line access to computer educational resources in Canada. This gift, which comes courtesy of the Department of Education of Alberta, Canada is worth many thousands of dollars. In addition, Canadian Rotarians will be exploring the possibility of establishing a wireless system for Belizean schools to access the internet across the country.
Based on BTL's commitment to provide free internet access to schools, Belize's Minister of Education, Hon. Francis Fonseca, has pledged his support to facilitate discussions with BTL to begin this component of the proj ect. Finally, these outstanding Rotarians from Canada are also working with Belize's Ministry of Education to acquire additional computers by way of MIT's professor Nicholas Negroponte's "One Laptop Per Child" programme.

HUMO
The Cowboy Midget
Shot In The Butt, Flowers Escapes Serious Injuries
There was a midget down in Texas whose testicles hurt and ached almost all the time.
The midget went to the doctor and told him about his problem.
The doctor told him to drop his pants and he would have a look. The midget dropped his pants. The doctor stood him up onto the examining table, and started to examine him.
"I see your problem Sir" said the doctor. "Please pass me those big scissors nurse" said the doctor.
The midget started to tremble when he saw the size of the scissors. He was just getting ready to spring off the table when the doctor saw the fear in his eyes and told him to calm down.
The doctor took the scissors and
went snip-snip-snip-snip on the right side, then snip-snip-snip-snip on the left side.
The midget was so scared he was afraid to look, but noted with amazement that the snipping did not hurt.
The doctor then lifted him off the table, placed him on the floor and told him to walk around the examining room to see if it still hurt.
"How does it feel now?" asked the doctor said,
The midget was absolutely delighted as he walked around and discovered that the aching was gone.
"It feels perfect Doc, what did you do?" asked the midget.
The doctor replied, "I cut two inches off the top of your cowboy boots."

In the wake of Monday night's fatal shooting of George "Junie Balls" McKenzie, the former boss of Northside's Majestic Alley Crips, Belize City Police has been on high alert on the southside of the city as they fear the area could become the battleground for retaliation.
This high state of police alert paid off on Tuesday night when it led to the apprehension of a man as he was chased by the echoes of the shots he fired at another man on Mahogany Street on the Southside of Belize City.
Police reports that it was shortly after 8:00 p.m., on Tuesday, 28th August, when a mobile patrol in the area of Mahogany Street responded to the sound of gunshots in the area.
Upon reaching Mopan Street, they saw a man fleeing on a bicycle. The individual was intercepted and a search of his person led to the discovery of a chrome point 38 revolver with five expended shells.
Police also found a black ski mask and a black stocking in his possession. He was immediately taken into custody and transported to the scene of the crime where they came upon a man suffering from a single gunshot wound to the left buttock.
The injured man was identified as
US Embassy (Belize) Contributes To Hurricane Relief
BELMOPAN CITY, Belize, Monday, 27th August 2007:
The U.S. Embassy in Belmopan informed that Charge d'Affaires Leonard Hill today officially handed over emergency supplies to Belize Red Cross President Karen Diaz in response to the damage caused by Hurricane Dean.
The Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) coordinated and delivered this shipment of relief supplies (including plastic sheeting, chainsaws, hygiene kits and blankets) by chartered aircraft on August 24.
These supplies were turned over to the Belize Red Cross and delivered to people in the affected areas. The U.S. government will also make a cash contribution of BZ$ 100,000 to NEMO for relief supply purchases in response to the Foreign Ministry's appeal to diplomatic missions in Belize.
The government and people of the United States have been following with concern the effects of Hurricane Dean in the Caribbean. "Our thoughts and prayers are with he people of Belize affected by the hurricane, especially in the northern districts, said Ambassador Robert Dieter. "We are thankful that there was no loss of life or serious injury."

Development, OFDA arrived in Belize the day before the hurricane hit and began working at NEMO headquarters to help coordinate the U.S. response to Hurricane Dean. She worked with Belizean and international experts including from the Untied Nations to help provide effective relief as soon as possible after the hurricane.
In addition, three U.S. military helicopters based at Soto Cano, Honduras, were dispatched a few hours after Hurricane Dean passed to help with damage assessment and to transport military and civilian personnel of the Government of
Belize to the affected areas. They brought with them medical and engineering personnel to help with damage assessment.
The United States prepares for every hurricane season by stocking a warehouse in Mami with emergency supplies that can be sent on short notice to neighboring countries in the region hit by natural disaster.
In recent years the U.S. military's Humanitarian Assistance Program has funded construction of warehouses for NEMO emergency supplies in strategic locations in Belize, helping to prepare for hurricane disaster assistance.
The Victim: Mark Flowers 20. Photograph from police files
taken 9 month ago, in November 2006, when he was charged for disorderly conduct
Mark Flowers, 20, of a Belama Phase 1 address in Belize City.
Flowers told the police that he was standing on Mahogany Street when he was approached by a man fitting the description of the detainee. He said that the individual, who was wearing a mask, pulled out a handgun, he attempted the run away as the individual fired several shots at him resulting in one of the shots hitting him in the left buttock.
Flowers was transported to the nearby Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he was treated and admitted to ward in a stable condition.
The suspect was escorted to the Police Station where he was identified as Lucius Myers, 28, of an Iguana Street address on the Southside of the city.
Being a southside resident, it somewhat scales down the probability that Myers was acting in retaliation of the execution style murder of former Northside's MajesticAlley Crips Boss JunieBalls McKenzie, which occurred less than 24 hours earlier.
Myers has since been charged for the crimes of (1) Attempted murder, (2) Use of deadly means of harm, (3) Grievous harm.
The police informed that more charges are being formulated in relation to the unlicensed firearm found in his possession.

BELIZE CITY, Saturday, 1st September 2007:
For the second time this week, Police were able to capture a shooter and probably saved a life on the troubled streets of the old capital.
On this occasion, the culprit, a 16 year old minor, was caught still wearing the mask and armed with a 9mm pistol loaded with seven live rounds of ammunition.
Police reports that it was sometime around 10:45 on the night of Friday
August 31 st. when an alert team on mobile patrol in the area of St. Ignatius School on Euphrates Avenue heard a single gunshot and saw a male person attempting to flee on a bicycle. The individual who was later found out to be only 16 years of age, was immediately intercepted while still wearing a black ski mask and holding on to a 9mm pistol.
After taking the minor into custody, Police rushed over to the adjacent Amara Amara Avenue
where they found 19 year old Jamal Joseph suffering from a single gunshot wound to the left buttocks.
The injured man told the police that he was standing in front of his house at the corner of Amara Avenue and Basra Street when a lone gunman rode up on a bicycle and opened fire.
Police are of the opinion that their quick response might have obstructed
the gunman from getting off more shots at the target.
The injured person was place inside the police vehicle and transported to the Belize City hospital.
The detainee was taken to the police station and is expected to be charged for the serious crimes of attempted murder, dangerous harm and use of deadly means of harm.

r Pleased Wifh The Result This Year's D| Compelilio
This past weekend was the finals here in Belize for the Green Synergy Heineken DJ Competition.
The main reason for this email is to express the sentiments of many attendants the night of Saturday 25th August. It is clear that either this competition was 'staged' or it was not clear as to what the Judges were looking for.
Heineken had a video crew recording the entire competition therefore a view of the tape could confirm my concern. DJ Bush, the reigning champion, won once again. I must say that when the results were announced, even he was 'surprised'. His amazement on being announced as the winner is based on the fact that DJ Richie, one of the competitors, brought real game to the table, mixing in various formats.
The question remains, what were the Judges looking for?
Were they looking for mixing skills? Were they looking for the ability to please the audience or was their decision made on the basis of the competition being staged on the home turf of the reigning D J?
I was of the firm opinion that the concept behind this competition was to highlight the "BEST" that each country has to offer. Unfortunately we must now just lean back and watch as the 'real winner' of the Belize Finals 07 returns home puzzled as to what actually transpired that Saturday night. Thumb s up to all the DJ's that made it to the finals and congrats to the winner. All Thumbs down to the voting system.
