Robbery At
SAN IGNACIO TOWN, CAYO,
Thursday, February 12, 2009:
San Ignacio Police are this week
reporting an armed robbery at the
Rio Frio Tourist Site in the
Mountain Pine Ridge.
Police reports that San Ignacio
Veteran Tour Guide, Everald Tut,
34, reported that at around 2:30 pm
on Tuesday, February 10, whilst
conducting a tour at the Rio Frio
cave with four tourists, they were
held at gun point by five hispanic
male persons (believed to be
Guatemalans due to their accent).
In a statement to the police, Tut
informed that robbers made off
with an assortment of cell phones,
wrist watches, binoculars, shoes,
digital cameras, gold rings and
cash. No one was injured in the
incident.
Tut, informed that it was shorty
after 8:00 am on Tuesday,
February 10 when he departed a
lodge in the village of Cristo Rey
with two male and two female
tourists (one of the couples was
Canadian and the other
American.) He departed on a
guided tour to Caracol and on the
return, as is normal, the tour made
a stop at the Rio Frio Cave.
He reportedly parked the van and
the tourists walked down to the
cave.


Tourist Site
While he was preparing to leave
the site, he reportedly heard a
movement in nearby bushes after
which two male persons appeared
one of whom was armed with
what appeared to be a short butt,
sawed off shotgun and the other
was armed with a handgun.
The man with the shotgun told
him in spanish "Don't worry, this
is just a holdup".
Three other male persons, all
armed with handguns and
machetes, similarly emerged from
the bushes. Except for their eyes,
their faces and heads were covered
with cloth.
Realizing that something was
not quite right, the tourists began
walking back down towards the
cave and this was when one of the
robbers, in spanish, instructed Tut
to call them back saying "all we
want is money."
The group complied with the
instruction and they were relieved
of money, camera, binoculars and
a pair of tennis shoes from one of
the tourists as well a gold wedding
ring. One of the tourist was also
relieved of US$140 that he had in
his pocket.
The tourists had other cash and
property in the van and these
properties were spared as the van
was not searched.

BY: Natalie Williams,
SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo
District, Tuesday, February 3,
2009:
In the spirit of promoting
"values, loyalty, commitment and
giving selflessly", Sacred Heart
Junior College School Support
Program has once again reached
out to lend a helping hand.
Through its fundraising efforts
the group was able to render
assistance to several primary
schools, selected by club members.
As part of its endeavors to raise
funds, the diligent and dedicated
members of the club a hosted a
school dance a few days after the
devastating flood of October 2008.
With the kind sponsorship from
Mr. Luis Puga, Mr. Oscar Puga
and Mr. Obed Contreras, the
dance was held at the legendary
Planet Okis in Benque Viejo Town.
These three businessmen willingly
assisted us in hosting, advertising
and promoting the successful
event.
Entrance fees were collected by
Mr. Keith Westby, a Math lecturer
of Sacred Heart Junior College, as
well as by the President of the club,
Ms. Judy Vasquez.
DJ Lexus provided the rhythm
and vibes which got the crowd "all
hyped up" to participate in dance
contests for prizes and surprises.
One of these prizes came from
San Ignacio's very own Hannah's
Restaurant which is known for its
tasty food and great customer
services.
In the aftermath of the flood in
mind, the club members decided to
assist the Calla Creek Primary
School. There was a great need to
replace books and materials at the
school since so much was lost dur-
ing the flood. We provided school
supplies and materials for all the
students and teaching materials for
the teachers. A & R in Santa Elena
offered discounted prices for most
of the school supplies.
Mr. Hugo Salazar, a member of
the School Support Program and a
student of Sacred Heart Junior
College, promoted the values and
mission of the program.
As a great blessing and an
unexpected gift, a quiet, patient,
supportive, and benevolent
woman stepped into our lives in


November 2008.
She bestowed the club with many
treasures. She visited for holidays
in 2007 while staying at Martha's
Kitchen to shelter from the
blistering winters of Canada. Mrs.
Isabel Osbourne saw a great
opportunity to assist our rural
primary schools here in Cayo.
She left San Ignacio with a
mission to collect materials, school
supplies and funds for our program.


Then, in November of 2008, she
returned like a nightingale, with all
the materials and funds she
collected.
She became our generous
benefactor at that time. While on
her second trip to Belize, she also
became an exemplary assistant at
Cornerstone Foundation.
She saw her pale cheeks turn rosy
red while she worked and sweltered
in the hot kitchens at Cornerstone,


preparing meals for their primary
school feeding program. Mrs.
Osbourne is eager to return to
Cayo next year to continue her
extraordinary mission of charity.
We take this opportunity to
inform that as we enter our eighth
year as socially responsible
citizens, we are committed to
continue promoting values
excellence, innovation, and
productivity in our community.

banks in Belize.
A hefty reward was offered for his
capture.
A private investigation decided to
track him down.
After a lengthy search, the PI
traced the bandit to his favorite
cantina in Santa Elena, Cayo.
The PI sneeked up behind the
bandit, put his 9mm pistol to the
bandit's head, and said, "You're
under arrest. Tell me where you
hid the loot or I'll blow your brains
out. "
A problem arouse however
because the bandit didn't speak
English, and the PI didn't speak
Spanish.

They stopped doing that
immediately after I started doing
the same thing to them at funerals.
The Yardman
woman pulled up in the driveway
and called out her window, "Say,
Mister, how much do you charge
to do this kind work?"
Jones thought for a moment, then
answered, "It's all for free
sweetheart. The lady who lives
here lets me sleep with her."


in the cantina was a bilingual
lawyer who offered to translated the
PI's message and the bandit's
response.
After hearing the PI's message
the terrified bandit blurted out, in
Spanish, that the loot was buried
under the mango tree behind the
cantina.
"What did he say? the PI asked.
The lawyer answered, "He said

me with that fake gun. I'll pull
my gun and shoot this turkey."

Robbery At Tourist Site

couple, guests from a lodge in the
Mountain Pine Ridge, who were
inside the cave.
Just then another tour was
arriving at the site when the driver
spotted one of the bandits and
quickly drove to the military post
at the Douglas de Silva Forest
Station located less than a mile
from the cave.
By the time the three unprofes-
sionally dressed soldiers arrived on
the scene the bandits had
disappeared into the forest.
Overall the bandits are said to
have made off with three cellular
telephones, 5 pairs of binoculars,
two gold rings, a digital camera,
4 pairs tennis shoes (3 from the
tourist and one pair from a tour
guide) and with almost two
thousand US dollars in cash.
Tut informed that despite the
incident, the group proceeded to
the final stop at Rio-On before
returning to the lodge in Cristo Rey.
They are currently on the peninsula
in Placencia as they continue on
their vacation in Belize.
Up to press time no arrest has
been made as the police continues
an intensive investigation into this
incident. They have also alerted
their counterparts in Guatemala.
Since this latest incident, the
military has reportedly adjusted its
operations in the area as a team of
soldiers are now stationed on the
site at Rio Frio.
We were additionally informed
that the Defense Force will soon be
upgrading its strength, from a
Company to a Battalion at the
military post in Central Farm.
Consequently the post of the
commanding officer will be
upgraded to that of a Colonel. This
increase in strength will allow for
increase military patrols as well a
improved supervision to enhance
professionalism at the various
outposts.
The Rio Frio Cave is among the
major attractions for visitors to the
Mountain Pine Ridge Area.
It is located, in Augustine, near
the Douglas de Silva Forest Station.
Upon arrival at Rio Frio Cave,
visitors can park a short distance
from the entrance, and a short walk
reveals the massive 65-foot arched
entrance.
Large boulders, some covered
with moss, allow for climbing high
up along the side near the wall of
the cave, and stepping-stone stairs
have also been set to make the hike
easier.
When inside the cave, the other
large entrance (or exit) can also be
seen, as the entire cave is less than
half-mile long.

Public Notice
Public Utilities Commission (PUC)
PUBLIC UTILITIES PUBLIC UTILITIES



In exercise of the powers conferred upon it by Section 32 of the Public Utilities Commission Act, Chapter 223 of the Laws of Belize, Revised Edition 2000, the
Electricity Act, Chapter 221 of the Laws of Belize, Revised Edition 2000, and all other powers thereunto enabling, the Public Utilities Commission (hereinafter
referred to as "the Commission) hereby notifies the general public that the Commission has reviewed and has altered by way of several amendments, the 2008 Annual
Review Proceeding Final Decision (hereinafter referred to as "the Final Decision") for the Belize Electricity Limited (BEL).

Reasons for Amendments to the Final Decision:
The Commission made its Decision to review and altered the Final Decision for several reasons, including:

a) Decision 6(b) of the Final Decision required that the Commission implement a new Rate Setting Methodology (RSM) effective September 1, 2008, that is intended
to provide for more timely collection of the costs paid by BEL for wholesale power and to encourage more ellicient consumption of electricity by consumers. This
new RSM requires that a Reference Price of Power (RPP), being the cost of power component of Mean Electricity Rate (MER), be set twice annually, with a new RPP
being required for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009. Any change in the RPP necessitates a revised MER and revised tariffs for the various customer classes,
thereby requiring amendments to any previous Decision that set the MER and the approved tariffs.

b) Certain Decisions within the Final Decision were made taking into consideration the then escalating price of oil and other undesirable economic conditions. Since
then, the price of oil has been reduced quite dramatically, resulting in much lower energy costs and some improvement in overall economic conditions within the
electricity sector. Given these positive developments, the Commission has decided to take advantage of the situation and correct certain irregularities in the way BET.
records certain expenses that ultimately result in higher electricity rates to consumers, and to allow BEL to realize the target Rate of Return (ROR) of 12% for the
period January 1 to June 30, 2009, as opposed to the 10% ROR approved in the Final Decision that was issued June 26, 2008.

General Effects of the Amendments to the Final Decision:
The amendments to the Final Decision have the following effects:

a) The approved Regulated Asset Value (RAV) for 2009 has been reduced by some $6.47 million, from $276.17 million to $269.70 million.

b) The Depreciation component of the Tariff Basket Revenue (TBR forecast total revenues to be collected by BEL through approved electricity rates) has been
reduced by some $295,000 for 2009, or $145,000 for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009.

c) The Return component of the TBR has been increased by some $4.75 million for 2009, or $2.34 million for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009.

d) The Operational Expenditure (Opex) component of the TBR has been increased by some $6.47 million for 2009, or $3.18 million for the period January 1 to June
30, 2009. Opex has been increased by an amount equal to the reduction in the RAV.

e) The Taxes/Licence Fees component of the TBR has been reduced by some $669,000 for 2009, or $345,000 for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009.

t) The net effect of the above is that the approved Value Added of Delivery (VAD) has been increased by some $10.25 million for 2009, or $5.03 million for the
period January 1 to June 30, 2009.

g) The approved forecast for the TBR for 2009 is some $164.87 million for 2009, or $80.47 million for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009.

h) The approved Mean Electricity Rate (MER) has been reduced from $0.441 to $0.375, or 15.0%, for the period January 1 to June 30, 2009.

Approved Mean Electricity Rate (MER), Tariffs, Forecast Cost of Power (FCP) and Forecast Sale of Power (FSP):
The various amendments outlined above have resulted in the following approved MER, Cost of Power and Sale of Power forecasts, and Tariff Schedule for the period
January 1 to June 30, 2009:

Belize Electricity Limited (BEL)
Mean Electricity Rate (MER) Forecast Cost of Power (FCP) and Forecast Sale of Power (FSP) for January 1 to June 30, 2009

Last week
we looked
at the pawn
and how
it moves,
although
there are
two more
things to know about the pawn we
will leave that to a later column.
This week the chess column will
look at how the knight moves.
Note the knights begin on bl, gl,
b8 and g8
The knight is the only piece in
chess that can jump over other
pieces. The knight looks like a

horse and it moves in an 'L' shape,
in the diagram, the moves are
shown. The knight on b 1 can move
to a3 or c3, when moving the knight
we can count '1 square,2 squares
and turn' You may notice that the
knight always moves to the
opposite colour square, from dark
to light and then from light to dark.
When the knight is near the middle
of the board it is more powerful as
it can move to 8 possible squares,
if it is on the edge of the board it
only can move to 4 squares. The
knight can move forwards,
backwards and sideways as long as
it finishes with a turn.
A knight could move from b1 to
c3 then the next move from c3 to


Primary School Chess, On The Move


BY David Coombs,
Cayo Chess Coordinator
SANTA ELENA TOWN, Cayo,
Saturday, February 7, 2009:
On Friday 6th February a Belize
National Youth Chess Foundation
organized chess tournament was
held at the Aguada Hotel in Santa
Elena.
This tournament had two aims,
one was to select the 12 best
players to enter the Cayo District
Final. The second aim was to have
a beginners section to enable
students who know how to play but
have little experience to take part
in a tournament in order for them
to gain confidence and have fun
while playing and interacting with
students from other schools.
Students had to be registered in
advance and a computer was used
to decide the pairings of players.
The computer program 'Swiss' is
used internationally and over the
course of several tournaments a
'ranking' can be given to players
to establish a national ranking

system
The tournament had the
participation of 45 students
ranging in age from 7 to 15.
It began at 8.30 a.m., and finished
at around 2.30 p.m.. All students
played four games and they had up
to 50 minutes for each game.
While some games lasted only
about five minutes, others ran on
for tense 45 minutes.
At the start of each round all
the players shook hands as is
traditional in chess games. This is
part of respecting the opponent.
Those advanced in the game
played with chess clocks that
ensure each player has an equal
amount of time.
As the rounds began the room
was silent while players were deep
in thought about their strategy and
the only sound is the 'click, click'
of clocks pressed after each move.
The games ended with the players
again shaking hands. The learner
(there are no losers in chess, only
learners) congratulated the winner.
At the end of the tournament
medals, books and chess wrist
bands were awarded to the top three
students from each section. These
were, Beginners, 11 years and
under: first place Eric Lee from St.
Andrews Primary School;
second place Anthony Hulse

BELIZEANS TO RECEIVE FREE

EYE SURGERY IN VENEZUELA
The Republic of Venezuela in collaboration with the Ministry of Health Government of Belize has launched Operacion Milagro
a humanitarian social programme geared toward providing free surgery on pterygium and cataracts for Belizeans.
Under Operacion Milagro, every Belizean with these two conditions can apply to receive the operation. They will be screened by a group of
Venezuelan doctors who will determine their needs here in Belize and ensure that they are physically fit to undergo the surgery.
Each person approved will be given a date on which they will be leaving Belize. The flight to Venezuela will be free of charge. Similarly, the
Government of the Republic of Venezuela will provide patients with accommodations and food during their stay. Their medical care and
medications will also be free.
Although the programme is geared toward the treatment of pterygium and cataracts, other special cases of eye conditions will be taken into
consideration for treatment on an individual basis.
Apart from the clinical diagnosis of their condition by the team, persons approved for travel to Venezuela must have the following:
SA valid Belizean passport
S1 luggage item per patient to include clothes and personal items including toothpaste, deodorant, soap, sanitary napkins, shampoo,
conditioner, toilet paper, bath towel, comb etc.
SA small bag, purse or backpack is optional.
Female patients are being asked NOT to carry make-up as they will not be encouraged to use it after the operation in order to better
facilitate the healing process.
Once the patient's operation has been completed, they will be brought back to Belize free of charge. They will, however, be
responsible for transportation to and from the Philip S. W. Goldson International Airport.
Every person suffering from an eye condition is encouraged to fill out an application form and forward the completed form to either their
nearest health center or the Embassy of the Republic of Venezuela in Belmopan.

"My Son Was Unjustly Expelled," says Michael Hyde


SANTA ELENA TOWN, Cayo
District, Thursday, February 5,
2009:
Today, a distraught Michael
Hyde accompanied by his 18 year
old son, Rasheed Hyde, visited our
office voicing his concern that his
son Rasheed, a fourth form student,
was "unjustly" expelled from
Mopan Technical High in Benque
Viejo Town.
Hyde informed that on Thursday,
January 22nd, he visited Mopan
Technical High to pick up his son's
report card, and that on arrival his
son, visibly shaken, told him that a
group of about a dozen male
students who have reportedly
been harassing him for some time,
had just threatened to kill him.
According to the father, he did not
take lightly this threat and so he
instructed his son to accompany
him. They boarded his car and
began searching the town for the
boys.
They drove around for several


minutes until they eventually met
one of the boys near a gas station.
Hyde said that he drove up to the
student, got out of the car and
confronted the boy. He said that he
had some harsh words with the
boy which ended in Hyde slapping
the boy in the face.
Michael informed that when his
son reported for classes the next
day, Friday, January 23, the police
were called in and his son was
taken to the police station in
Benque Viejo. Whilst at the
station, he reportedly contacted his
father by telephone and apprised
him of this development.
When he received the telephone
call the father could not
immediately rush over to the
police station as he was on
business in Belmopan. He
however, contacted his son's
mother and asked her to check into
the matter at the police station.
Whilst at the police station, the
student reportedly received a letter


C I

The Student
Rasheed Hyde, 18
dated that same Friday, January 23,
signed by the School's Principal,
Mr. Francisco Tun and addressed
to his parents.
The short correspondence
informed that "your son Rasheed
Hyde has received his third
suspension in three years and in
accordance with school rules
your child is being asked to
withdraw from school."

The father informed that since it
was a Friday evening there was not
much he could do on his return
from Belmopan. However, on
Monday, January 26th, he made
several calls to the school in an
effort to find out why his child was
being asked to withdraw from
school, especially since he admits
to being the person who slapped the
student and that the only thing
Rasheed did was to inform him of
the threat against his life as any
child who felt threatened is
expected to do.
According to Michael Hyde when
he eventually contacted Principal
Tun, the principal reportedly told
him that the school's Board of
Directors had met and that it was
unanimously agreed that Rasheed
be "asked to withdraw from
school."
After hearing this, Hyde
reportedly contacted Mr. Gonzalo
Rosado, Chairman of the school's
Board of Directors, who reportedly
told him that he had no knowledge
of the incident or of the request for
his son to withdraw from the
school.
In seeking further clarification,
Hyde reportedly contacted the Vice
Chairman of the Board who
likewise reportedly indicated that
he had absolutely no knowledge of
the incident.
"Rasheed is an honor
student who is only two months
away from graduating. The very
report card that I picked that day
from school reflects that my child
is doing academically well at
school. He received Merit awards
for Metal Work, Mathematics and
Technical Drawing. His mid-term
report reflects 8 passing grades
above 70 percentile and 1
failing grade for the late handing
in of an assignment," said
Michael Hyde.
The father admits that he was the
person involved in the altercation
with the student and that his son
was in no way physically involved
in the incident.
He would like for Principal Tun
to be honest in handling this
matter, especially as it pertains to
saying that the decision to remove
his child from the school was a
Board of Directors decision.
He wants the Principal to allow
his son to return to school
especially since he is only two
months away from graduating.
Our efforts to contact Principal
Tun for comments were
unsuccessful as the only listed
telephone number for the school
constantly ended in a fax
tone.
The invitation nevertheless
remain constant for Principal Tun
to contact us with his comments at
anytime if he so desires.

disciplinary action taken against a
student at Pallotti High School and
the subsequent court action brought
against the school, it had been in
contact with both the school and the
parent of the student in question but
that given that the matter is before
the court, the Ministry of
Education is not in a position to
comment further on the specifics


of this case.
However, the Ministry of
Education takes very seriously that
discipline in our schools must be
fair and just to all parties concerned
and must be consistent with the
Constitution of Belize.
The role of the Ministry of
Education in ensuring quality
education for the development of
the individual and the society as a
whole is a balancing act that must,
on the one hand, ensure that
schools provide an environment


that is nurturing for all students but,
on the other hand, the rights of the
individual student must be
protected.
The Ministry of Education, over
the past few months, has been
undertaking a revision of the
Education Act and the Handbook
of Polices and Procedures for
School Services.
As part of this exercise the
Ministry of Education is
committed to reviewing the
provisions for governance of


schools relating to discipline to
ensure that they are consistent with
the principles outlined above.
In this endeavour, the Ministry
of Education is committed to
working collaboratively with all
stakeholders including students,
parents, teachers, principals and
management.
Furthermore, the Ministry of
Education will be conducting
country-wide consultations on the
proposed revisions to the
Education Act and the Handbook
of Policies and Procedures for
School Services.

(From left to rightI preventing crimes from occurring.
BTB Chairman. Gaspar uerrero.
Representative of SACNW Mr. Terry Colbert
Tourism Minister. Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr. The community security patrol and substation was
approved and implemented with the help and support
of Minister Manuel Heredia Jr., and Officer in Charge, Superintendent Dennis Arnold. The
Neighborhood Watch consists of the south side of the island, from Victoria Housetothe southern tip of
the island.
With the lead of Superintendent Dennis Arnold and some privately employed police force patrolling
the area 24/7, the southern end of the island have substantially been reduced in crimes and drug
trafficking, making the area a safe place not only fortourists, but for the residents of the area as well.
"The South Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch has brought awareness to the residents of San
Pedro," comments Hon. Manuel Heredia, Jr. With the support of the residents and properties, crimes
will continue to be reduced as we work together to make our island a safe place for the people who live
here and an enjoyable stay for visitors."
Today, the South Ambergris Caye Neighborhood Watch consists of about 100 members, including
residents and properties on the south side. All privately funded activities are contributed by the
neighborhood. The neighborhood watch has also donated equipments to the local police department
to assist in the patrols of the island. They hope to raise approximately $110,000.00 annually which will
be used for payroll, purchase of equipment and monthly expenses.
The residents of San Pedro have been aware of the success of the South Ambergris Caye
Neighborhood Watch, that they have taken an interest in forming a neighborhood watch for the
northern partof the island.
