BY- Mohsen Badijan
Often people ask 'Who are the
BahA'is? What is their mission?
What are they trying to achieve?'
In brief Baha'is are ordinary
people with an extraordinary
mission. They have a spiritual
perspective on life and a deep
desire to grow spiritually, to
develop their potential.
They want to experience a closer
relation with God. They dedicate
their lives to the promotion of these
principles in Baha'i Scriptures:
Let your vision be world-embrac-
ing, rather than confined to your
own self.
Think ye at all times of render-
ing some service to every member
of the human race.
Ye are the fruits of one tree, and
the leaves of one branch.
The Baha'i Faith is a new
independent religion that God has
sent for us, for our time.
The Baha'i Faith dates back to
1844. According to the Britannica
Book of the Year 2003, the Baha'i
Faith is the second most
widespread religion in the world.
The Baha'i faith presents a
pattern for a new global
civilization to unify all nations,
races, and religions.
Their goal is for creating a world
of oneness, peace and harmony.
Baha'is do not set themselves apart
from the followers of other faiths.
They reach out to peoples of all
nations and religions to bring them
together and help them to work in
harmony.
Consort with the followers of all
religions in a spirit of friendliness
and fellowship.

BahA'i Scriptures
A root cause of prejudice is a
feeling of superiority to others. This
sense of superiority separates us,
and, like cancerous cells, quietly
attacks and destroys the body and
the soul of humankind. Baha'is
make every effort to heal these
destructive cells by setting an
example, by demonstrating the
positive consequences of
acceptance, equality, and oneness.
Baha'i people are of all races and
nations; they find equality with
each other because they are equal
before God, the one Creator who
loves and cares for all His children.
God has sent, and will continue
to send, new religions in each age
according to the capacity and
understanding of people to
accomplish three goals: To
Safeguard the Welfare of
Humanity, to promote the Unity of
Mankind and Fostering spirit of


love and fellowship. He has sent,
and will continue to send,
Messengers or Redeemers to teach
us new knowledge and to disclose
new mysteries, according to our
spiritual maturity.
To teach us that knowing, loving,
and glorifying God is the very life
of our soul, the source of the most
enduring hope and happiness.
To help us recognize our supreme
station as God's most glorious
creatures and manifest the most
wondrous gifts He has placed
within our soul.
To help us experience in this
world an abundant life, a deep and
genuine sense of joy and peace.
To awaken us to our divine
destiny and the splendid and
awesome eternity that awaits us.
And to raise our ethical standards,
to teach us virtues, so that we will
live a life of purity, service, and
love.
The Baha'i Faith is moving the
world towards enhancing the world
civilization, which can cultivate
our spiritual potential on a scale
never before attempted or achieved.
The Baha'i Faith has new
teachings, it has a goal that is to
establish peaceful and cooperative
relations between all cultures,
nations, and races of the world.
Baha'i Scriptures says:
"The earth is but one country and
human is its citizen"
For the first time in human
history, the Baha'i Faith presents a
New World Order that will
establish an enduring peace and
justice on our planet, a new plan
that will promote prosperity for all
members of the human race.
Just as our parents give us new
instructions at each stage of our
lives, also God reveals new truths
adapted to our needs. This is called
the Progressive Revelation of truth
and the Divine Revelation is
progressive. God reveals His Will
progressively through His
Manifestations who come from
time to time as humanity advances
from one stage to another. The
same is true of the Revelation of
each Manifestation. His teachings
are revealed gradually as the
understanding of His followers'
increases. His purpose is to lay
down new laws for humanity's next
stage of evolution.
Baha'is believe that the time has
come for the world to accept a new
set of instructions. Without
learning the new instructions, we
will suffer not only spiritually,
but face grave dangers and
catastrophes that we cannot even
imagine. With our advanced

technology and with our ethical
standards, we are in the position of
a drunk driver in a speeding car.
Baha'is believe that the ultimate
solution to every problem is
spiritual. Our hearts and minds are
always in command. Our material
civilization is a giant without a
soul. The Baha'i Faith has come to
put a soul into this giant.
History shows that all the great
religions had this power. They all
reshaped human destiny. A great
civilization followed the advent of
every faith. Religion reaches the
depths of the human heart. It has
the power to change us from within,
to inspire us to live by virtues. It
has the power to bring love, peace,
and hope to the heart of humanity.
To create a world of peace, we need
peaceful and peace-loving people.
We need a system of belief that
reshapes our values and priorities,
a religion that inspires in each of
us a true sense of oneness with all
members of the human race. We
need a vision that raises us to a
supreme level of spirituality and
gives us a global perspective from
which we can see every human
being as a gift from Heaven.
We need a celestial vision that
lifts us above our differences, that
helps us appreciate, respect, and
love every child, every man and
woman as an equal member of the
family of God.
The Baha'i Faith has already
accomplished these noble goals on


a global scale among all nations.
The sacred Scriptures of a religion
are sources of celestial inspiration
and creative energy. They are its
heart and soul. They have the
power to raise the lowest creature
to the crest of nobility and love for
all humankind.
Consider these inspiring
quotations from the Baha'i
Scriptures:
Ye were created to show love, one
to another Take pride not in love
for yourselves but in love for your
fellow-creatures. Glory not in love
for your country, but in love for all
mankind.
Look not upon the creatures of
God except with the eye of
kindliness and of mercy, for our
loving providence hath pervaded
all created things, and our grace
encompassed the earth and the
heavens.
This is a very brief explanation
about few Baha'i principals that
offers for the betterment of the
world but is not complete and could
be continued in future up on your
request.

BENQUE VIEJO TOWN, Cayo
Thursday, January 15, 2009:
Benque Viejo police today
reported the retrieval of the
floating body of a Belize City man
from the waters of the Mopan River
in that western municipality.
It was shortly after 7:00 am on
Tuesday, January 13 when
Harrington Grey, 65, of a 4 B
Flamboyant Street, Belize City
address, visited the Benque Viejo
police station and reported that,
about 12 hours earlier, sometime
around 7:30 on the night of
Monday, January 12, his 23
year-old son Darwin Grey, left
their Belize City home without
indicating where he was going.


In the report to Benque Viejo
Police, the father informed that he
was awakened during the early
morning hours on Tuesday,
January 13, by two young men, one
of whom was a close friend of his
son. They told the father that all
three of them had crossed into
Melchor, Guatemala the previous
night and that whilst swimming
across the illegal river crossing on
their return to Belize, Darwin
disappeared under the water in the
darkness and never resurfaced.
They reportedly rushed back to
Belize City going directly to inform
the father of the incident.
A police search party was
dispatched to the area but two days


of searching proved fruitless.
The body resurfaced two days
later when a resident in the area saw
it floating in the area about 50 feet
from where it originally went
under. The resident pulled the body
to a more stable portion of the river
and alerted police of the discovery.

Dear Editor;
It has recently come to my
attention, by way of newspaper
articles, that the Government of
Belize is actually paying 48 cents
for every kilowatt hour of light
consumed by street lighting.
This figure, according to the
latest release from the Public
Utilities Commission (PUC), will
be reduced to 41 cents. This is 3
cents more than the 38 cent that
regular consumers are paying. If
our light bills are already high, one
can only imagine what the cost is
to Government and, by extension,
to all of us as taxpayers.
As consumers we are always on
the alert to conserve electricity
consumption in our homes. We
teach our children to turn off lights
when not in use. We ensue that our
lights are hardly kept on during
daytime hours.
I find it amazing however, that if
the government is actually paying
for every kilowatt hour of
electricity consumed by street
lighting, why on earth do we see
all those street lights on for 24
hours each day and 7 days each
week.
This is wasteful spending and is
causing an unnecessary drain on
taxpayers. It does not matter for
the people at the Belize Electricity
Limited because the longer these
street lights are left on, the more
money they make.
If the large amount of street
lights left on during daytime hours
in San Ignacio is any indication,
then I can only imagine the
combined countrywide cost. I
repeat, this is wasteful spending,
and it should be corrected without
delay.
It is only right that we not only
state problems when we see them,


but we must also be prepared to
offer possible solutions. How then
do we correct this waste?
Here is one suggestion, and
maybe a another radical one
towards the end of this letter.
There are presently many traffic
officers on the streets in town.
Sometimes they become quite a
nuisance to the driving public.
In fact there is one of them
in particular whose only
responsibility appears to be the
protection against parking in that
bit of street side in front of the San
Ignacio Traffic office on Hudson
Street. If ever a driver should dare
park in that spot, this officer
instantly emerges, as if out of
thin air, to clear the spot.
Probably a person with this kind
of idle job could be charged with
the responsibility of conducting a
survey of all street lights burning
during daytime hours. The report
from this individual should then be
forwarded to the Ministry of
Finance for their information and
to the electricity company for
prompt corrective action.
This situation should be
constantly monitored across the
country and the electricity company
should be legally charged with the
responsibility of taking immediate
action to correct this drain on
the financed of the nation.
The money saved from this
wasteful spending could certainly
be put to much better use.
In terms of a radical
suggestion, I sincerely hope that it
will not reach the extreme point
whereby some of us might be
forced to the point of taking out our
slingshots to put out these daytime
lights if only for the sake of saving
hard earned taxpayers money.
Francisco, San Ignacio


On The First Test A Big Fat "F" For Chubby


Dear Editor;
Dr. Cecil "Chubby" Reneau,
running on the PUP ticket for
Mayor of Belize City This is a real
eye opener for many of us.
The man holds a doctorate in
something or the other It shows
that sometimes the piece of paper
held by some of us or that title
before or in front of our name, is
hardly worth anything.
Is Chubby Reneau so close to the
PUP stench, that he cannot smell
it?
This reminds me of a recent
experience: It goes like this:- Over
the Christmas holiday, I went to that
area behind Homestead Acres,
in Esperanza Village, where
chickens are raised and
slaughtered. From the moment


I drove up to a house back there,
the stench was unbearable. But
there we found a family man,
woman and children going
about their merry business
oblivious to the unbearable stench.
One is only left to wonder if
Chubby Reneau might be too close
to the PUP stench to render him
oblivious thereof being in direct
contradiction to the general
perception of PUP corruption
overwhelmingly held by the
ordinary man and woman in the
streets
Chubby Reneau, a former Chief
Education Officer? Could this man

when teachers morale were at an

More recently, on the grand
debut of Chubby Reneau and the
PUP slate in Belize City, the nation
saw Chubby and only 6 candidates

we ever saw such low fuel prices?

SANTA ELENA TOWN, Cayo
District, Wednesday, January 14,
2009:
The Winsom Foundation is an
official non-profit organization
of Belize created in 2007.
Currently the Winsom Founda-
tion is involved with a weekly art
class with the students at the Cristo
Rey School R.C. in the village of
Cristo Rey, Cayo District. This art
class has hosted two Arts and Crafts
Festivals featuring the works of
these students. At the Festival, the
students not only showed their art
to other students from many other


schools; they also gave them
classes on how to make macrame,
tie-dye, paintings, and wood sculp-
tures. The students were able to
showcase their talents and give
back to the community of their
peers. During these Festivals, the
visiting students not only were able
to learn how to paint, tie-dye,
macrame and other things, they
were able to keep the art they made
while learning.
Most children's formal education
finishes at the age of thirteen in the
village. The Foundation raises
funds to place children and advance

rings several times and one of the
men presses the speaker button
and begins talking to the phone.
MAN: "Hello?"
WOMAN: "Honey, it's me. Are
you still at the party."
MAN: "Yes."
WOMAN: "I'm at the shop and
found this beautiful leather coat.
It's only $500. Is it okay if I buy
it?"
MAN: "Sure, go ahead."
WOMAN: "Oh, thanks so very
much. Ialso stoppedby the Toyota
garage and saw the new model
PRADO. There is only one left
in the silver color that I really,
really, like."


MAN: "How much?"
WOMAN: "$60.000 duty paid"
MAN: "OK, but for that price
tell them to put in all the optional
extras."
WOMAN: "Great, I am going
over there right now! Oh, and one
more thing. The house in Belama
we wanted last year is back on the
market. They're now selling it for
only $1.5 Million."
MAN: "Well then, go ahead,
write them the check and deliver
it as soon as possible."
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you
later! I love you!"
MAN: "Bye, I love you, too."
The man hangs up. The other men

absolute astonishment.
He then smiles and asks,
"Anyone knows to whom that
cellular phone belong?"

The Weather Forecaster


Afilm crew was on location deep
in the Mountain Pine Ridge.
One day an elder from the
community went up to the director
and said, "Tomorrow rain." The
next day it rained.
Three days later, the elder visited
location and went up to the
director and said, "Tomorrow
storm." The next day there was a
hailstorm.
"This old man is incredible,"
said the director. He told his


secretary to hire the elder to
predict the weather. However,
after several successful predictions,
the elder didn't show up for a whole
weeks.
Finally the director sent for him.
"I have to shoot a big scene
tomorrow," said the director, "and
I'm depending on you. What will
the weather be like?"
The elder shrugged his shoulders.
"Don't know," he said. "Radio is
broken."

younger ones in school. The
Winsom Foundation monitors
students' progress and assists them
in arranging specialized tutors as
needed.
In efforts to further enhance
community awareness and benefit,
The Winsom Foundation has also
spearheaded a No-Litter Campaign
adopting the slogan "Litter ... It
Just Isn't Natural". The last Arts
and Crafts Festival provided the
No-Litter Campaign supported by
teaching all the children, songs
about not littering, and the
importance of being responsible for
their own litter. The Foundation
also made reusable car litterbags
that were distributed to all of the
people at the Festival that had cars.
The Winsom Foundation will be
offering "Life Skills" workshops
for older adolescents and young
adults along with other programs.
In an effort to begin these
programs, Certified Yoga Teacher
Tara Darrall, a volunteer from
Hong Kong, arrived to teach 20
students, both male and female, the
practice of Yoga. Yoga mats were
donated for the children, and it is
our vision to be able to provide this
kind of enrichment on a broader
scale throughout Belize.
Some of the Winsom
Foundations objectives are:
**To empower young people to
take responsibility for their role and
place in their today's world.
**To develop a community
support program dedicated to
creating a world where all
people are appreciated for their
uniqueness.
**To create programming that is
locally relevant and flexible in its
design, adapting to community
interests, issues and needs through
art.
**For the arts to serve as a tool
for economic development and
community building through
partnerships with the business and
tourist communities.

adjourned for a second time to
December 2 and when that day
arrived, a third adjournment was
ordered until Tuesday, January 13,
2009 when the trial actually began.
In the hearing, the prosecution
presented two witnesses, the first
being the Forest Officer who was
on the patrol and the second
witness for the prosecution was the
police officer.
While Defense Counsel
Orlando Fernandez was not
present in court to hear the evidence
presented by the first witness.
However, he was present to hear
the evidence by the police officer
but chose not to cross-examine the
witness.
Information reaching us indicate
that in presenting a no-case
submission, the defense based its
submission on the argument that
the 1 kilometer adjacency zone and
imaginary boundary line between
Belize and Guatemala is the
subject of ongoing negotiations
between both countries and that a
1 kilometer intrusion is too slim a
margin to actual convict the
accused of the crime beyond a
reasonable doubt.
The defense also convinced the
court of the dubious reading of a
Global Positioning System (GSP)
and consequently the production of
erroneous coordinates.
The prosecution claimed
however, that the charge was not
illegal entry in Belizean territory
but rather illegal entry into a
National Park. The prosecution
further contended that the
Chiquibul Forest Reserve and
National Park is the only such
restricted area in the vicinity and
that the accused was in fact found
inside the reserve.
In the end Magistrate Kathleen
Lewis upheld the no-case
