Former Prime Minister Manuel Esquivel


Injured In Traffic Accident


SAN IGNACIO TOWN,
Cayo, Friday, April 3, 2009:
Belize's two term former
Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Dr.
Manuel Esquivel (1984-89 and
1993-98), is today reportedly in
good spirits recuperating at the
Ryder Trauma Center, Jackson
Memorial Hospital in Miami,
Florida, USA from injuries he
received when the Government
assigned Nissan Pathfinder SUV
in which he was traveling from
Belize City to his office in
Belmopan, slid off the road near
Mile 31 on the Western Highway
on Monday, March 30.
The driver William Schnarr
reportedly lost control of the 4
ton SUV as it approached the
entrance to the community of
Mahogany Heights. The vehicle
is reported to have slipped off
the road surface onto the loose
gravel, then onto the shoulder
of the road before reportedly
making contact with the head of
a culvert causing it to flip
through the air landing on its
four wheels in the bushes off the


The Extensively Damaged
Nissan Pathfinder SUV
road.
While the driver emerged with
an injury to the head, the 68 year
old Former Prime Minister, now
serving as a Senior Financial
Advisor with Ministerial Rank
in the office of Prime Minister
Dean Barrow, sustained facial
injuries, a dislocated shoulder,
broken ribs and broken bones in
the foot.
Mr. Esquivel and the driver
were first rushed to the Western
Regional Hospital in Belmopan.
The driver was subsequently
transferred to the Karl Heusner
Memorial Hospital in Belize
City while Mr. Esquivel was
flown by Wings of Hope to
Belize City and on to the


Medical Associates Hospital.
He left Medical Associates
Hospital at around 11:30 pm on
Wednesday, April 1, transported
to the airport and flown out of
the country to Miami. He is
accompanied by his wife Mrs.
Kathy Esquivel.
While at the Medical
Associates Hospital, many

Rt. Hon. Dr. Manuel

visitors were received notable
among which were Prime
Minister Dean Barrow and
Deputy Prime Minister
Gaspar Vega both of whom had
just returned to the country from
a meeting of Central American


Leaders with US Vice President
Joe Biden in Costa Rica.
It is to be noted that exactly
13 years and four days to the
date, on March 26, 1996 the then
serving Prime Minister of
Belize, Rt. Hon. Dr. Manuel
Esquivel was on his way to
Belmopan for a meeting of the
House of Representatives when
the white Range Rover driven at
the time by Police Sergeant,
Leslie Staine skidded off the
same highway, about two miles
further up, at mile 33. Prime
Minister Esquivel walked away
from the accident shaken and
bruised but otherwise unhurt to
the point where he was still able
to attend the meeting of the
House of Representative.
In this instance however, the
driver, Sgt. Staine suffered
severe head injuries and was
flown to a hospital, also in
Miami, in an unconscious
state. He never regained
consciousness a passed away a
few weeks after the accident.
We join the multitude of best
wishes pouring into the Esquivel
household as we also pray for the
speedy recovery of the Right
Hon. Former Prime Minister of
Belize Dr. Manuel Esquivel.

Northern Highway Traffic Accident Claims

The Lives of Atilio, Mark Anthony C Cecilia


ORANGE WALK TOWN,
Wednesday, April 1, 2009:
A gruesome traffic accident
on the outskirts of Orange Walk
Town today claimed the lives of
three persons.
Police reports that it was
shortly after at 11:00 am when
Orange Walk Police responded
to a reported traffic accident in
the village of Carmelita Village,
just 2 miles outside of Orange
Walk Town.
Upon arrival the police
observed a blue International
truck, with Belize City license
plates A-3613, parked off the
Northern Highway as well as an
extensively damaged green
Jeep Comanche single cab
pickup truck with Belize City
license plates C-30236. Police
encountered three motionless
persons, two without head,
inside the green jeep.
Police investigations revealed
that the green pickup truck was
traveling from Belize City
towards Orange Walk Town. It
was moving at a very high speed


ine river,
Atilio E. Ulloa, 33
when a blowout of the front right
tire reportedly occurred causing
it slam into the back of the truck
that was parked off the road. The
impact reportedly pushed the
truck about 20 feet from the spot
where it was parked.
The two decapitated victims
were identified as the driver
Atilio E. Ulloa, 33, of #32
Simon Lamb Street, Belize City
and Cecilia Melgar, 21, who
was seated in the middle of the
single cab pickup truck between
the driver and the third victim,
MarkAnthony Pacheco, 24, of
a Cleghorn Street address in


The green single cab pickup
truck after the three victims
were removed by rescue crew
Belize City.
Eyewitnesses say Pacheco took
the brunt of the impact to the
midsection and that he drew a
few breaths after the crash much
unlike Atilio Ulloa and Cecilia
Melgar who obviously died on
impact.
Relatives informed that Mark
Anthony Pacheco was heading
to Orange Walk Town to finish
a mechanic job. The trio did not
make it into town as the accident
occurred around mile 48, a mere
two miles before reaching
Orange Walk Town when
traveling northwards from
Belize City.


* Mark Anthony
Pacheco, 24
Police informed that, inside
the wrecked pickup truck, they
found a 9mm pistol licensed to
the driver. The gun was loaded
with a magazine containing 5
live rounds.
Since Wednesday's fatal traffic
accident, residents of Carmelita
Village are intensifying their
request to the relevant
authorities for the installation
of speed bumps in the area.
The people of Carmelita
Village say that too many are
the loss of lives that they have
witnessed in the area and that
if the requested speed bump
was in place there is a high
probability that Wednesday
morning's accident would have
been averted.

a traffic accident in the Mexican

back to Belize.

United States to Belize.
Immediately after the
accident, police officers of the
Federal Police arrived to the
scene to provide assistance to
the victim of the accident and
started to follow the standard
proceedings when an accident
involves a death (sic) body.
Soon after, officials from
the local General Attorney's
office arrived in order to
continue the investigations, to
initiate a formal legal inquiry
("averiguaci6n previa"), to
collect evidence and to recover
the body of Mr. Reyes from his
vehicle.
The body was removed and
DID NEVER REMAIN IN
THE VEHICLE, contrary to
one version who allegedly
asserts that the body was left
for over a day. It is a standard
proceeding to immediately
remove the body from any
accident scene, which in this
case was strictly followed.
Following those standard
proceedings, Mr. Reyes' body
was taken to the nearest police
station, which is in the village
of Candelaria, 45 minutes away
from the scene of the accident.
The premises of Candelaria
station are basic and simple;
they correspond to a small
village and it does not have all
the equipment as a large city's
police station does.
The following morning,
on 25 March, with the help
of local authorities, Mr. Reyes'
relatives in Belize were
contacted. His relatives
indicated to local Mexican
authorities that relatives and
representatives of the family
were departing immediately
from Belize to Candelaria in
order to claim Mr. Reyes'body.
Local authorities kept Mr.
Reyes' body inside the police
station waiting for a relative
and representatives of the
family and FOLLOWING THE
FAMILY REQUEST OF
KEEPING MR. RE YES'
BODY IN CANDELARIA,
even if standard proceedings
state that a body has to be taken
to the morgue in Campeche
City, which is 3 hours away
from Candelaria, and even if
the small police station does not
have a cooling room to keep


death (sic) bodies for a long
period of time.
On the same day, 25
March, Mexican and Belizean
authorities provided assistance
to relatives and representatives
of the family in order to
travel to Mexico and to make
arrangements in order to return
Mr. Reyes'body and belongings
to Belize. Fourpeople travelled
to Candelaria: a relative, Mr.
Reyes'associate, afamily friend
and a Belizean official. The
Embassy of Mexico eased a visa
to Mr. Reyes'associate.
Unfortunately, due to a
delay Mr. Reyes'representatives
could not arrive to Candelaria
on 25 March. They arrived on
26 March around noon.
On 26 March, after one
day waiting for Mr. Reyes'
representatives and keeping Mr.
Reyes' body in Candelaria
under family's request, local
authorities decided not to wait
any longer and around 10:00
am took the body to Campeche
City, which is 3 hours away. His
body had spent more than 24
hours at the Candelaria police
station and not inside his car.
In order to transport Mr.
Reyes'body to Campeche City,
localpoliceplaced his body with
due care within a standard
plastic bag for handling death
(sic) bodies. Mr. Reyes' body
was transported in the only
available duty vehicle -a pick-
up truck. It is worth noting that
local police works with limited
resources and it does not have
a transport with a cooling
system.
On the same day, on arriving
to (sic) Campeche City, Mr.
Reyes' body was taken to
the morgue called "Servicio
Mddico Forense" for a
mandatory post mortem
examination. Afterwards, Mr.
Reyes' body was given to his
family's representatives who by
that time had arrived to (sic)
Campeche City.
Local police gave back Mr.
Reyes' belongings to Mr. Reyes'
associate, except the 2 cars Mr.
Reyes was driving to Belize.
According to Mexican law,
there is a legal proceeding that
has to be followed in order to
recover those cars, because Mr.

CIUDAD DE CARACAS,

"Today, February 2, 2009,
does not just mark 10 years of
Revolution; it marks 10 years
since the beginning of a new
era in Latin America, the start
of a new day", said Venuzuelan
President Hugo ChAvez, as he
addressed a large crowd braving
the rain to commemorate the
first decade of the Bolivarian
Revolution.
"A new political, economic
and geopolitical map is taking
shape in the region", Chavez
affirmed.
During the official ceremony
President Hugo Chavez was
accompanied by Cuban First
Vice President Jos6 Ram6n

Prime Minister Roosevelt

Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua,

Honduras and President Rafael
Correa of Ecuador.
The people welcomed the
Political Leaders after the
closing ceremony of the 4th
Extraordinary Summit of the
ALBA (Bolivarian Alternative
for the Americas) in the capital


city of Caracas.
During the summit, in
Miraflores Palace, Chavez
thanked the Cuban Revolution
for the support it has given to the
process of change initiated in
Venezuela in 1999.
"It would be impossiblefor us
to estimate the horizon or the
magnitude of the support given


by the Cuban Revolution to the
Bolivarian Revolution," the
Venezuelan president affirmed.
Referring to the 10 years of
changes in Venezuela, Chavez
said that the decade could be
"summed up in three words that
express the immense efforts of
the people throughout these
years: revolution, independence
and socialism."
Morales noted that the
ALBA has facilitated important
advances in health and education
in his country, and highlighted
the decisive help of Cuba
and Venezuela in eradicating
illiteracy and in providing
medical care to more than
300,000 Bolivians within the
Operation Miracle program.
Ortega said that integration
and unity are the only way to
respond to the global crisis.
Skerrit and Zelaya made similar
comments.
All of the heads of state
present signed two agreements
on food security and sovereignty,
including the formation of
a grannacional ("one great
nation") food production
enterprise, to be financed by
the ALBA Bank.

Fuel Tax Kicks In


- Per Gallon


Fuel Prices Increase by $1.30+


SANTA ELENA, CAYO,
Thursday, April 2, 2009:
In his recent budget
presentation, Prime Minister
Dean Barrow informed of a
$1.00 fuel tax to take effect


FOLLOWING THE SO
The coach of a Belize City
school for blind children is taking
his school's football team to an
"away game".
They stop for a rest break on the
Western Highway.
He allowed the children to work
off some energy with a little
impromptu practice in a roadside
pasture.
The coach is sitting in a nearby
diner, explaining to another patron
how blind kids can play football.
"We have a special ball",
explained the coach. "It has a bell
in it, so the children can keep track
of where the ball is by listening
for the bell".
"Very clever!" remarked one of
the patron.
Just then they were interrupted
by a man who stormed into the
diner and shouts "Who in here is
responsible for those darn
blind kids that came off that

that in the first year, the new fuel

"I am", responded the coach
somewhat annoyed by the way this
man was refering to his students.
"What about it? You got

asked the coach.
"No"responded the man "you
better get that bunch rounded

revenue intended to bridge this
year's 60 million dollar budget
deficit.
Prime Minister Barrow further
informed that fuel prices is
projected to remain stable, at
least for the immediate future,
and that if at anytime the price
should increase, the new fuel tax
will be adjusted downward in
order to ease the effects on the
Belizean people.
In most cases, as the new day
rolled in on April 1, 2009, gas
stations across the nation,
especially those providing 24
hours service, began the upward
changing of prices at the pump.
However, not by the announced
$1.00 as indicated by the Hon.


Prime Minister but rather by
$1.30+.
"In most cases", we say
because one customer stopped
by the office at around 10:00 pm
on March 31 (two hours before
the increase came into effect)
and showed us a receipt where,
a few minutes earlier, he
purchased $50 at worth of
premium gasoline at the already
increased rate of $7.45 per
gallon.
The new prices for fuels at the
pump within the San Ignacio/
Santa Elena area is as follows:
PREMUIM GASOLINE:
From $6.13 to $7.45 ($1.32).
REGULAR GASOLINE:
From $5.76 to $7.09 ($1.33).
DIESEL FUEL: From $4.45
to $5.79 ($1.34).
KEROSENE: From: $4.21 to
$4.32 ($0.11).

The Medical Maeic If Cinnamon & HIney


Bet the drug companies won't
like this one getting
around.
Facts on Honey and
Cinnamon:
It is found that a mixture of
honey and cinnamon cures most
diseases.
Honey is produced in most of
the countries of the world.
Scientists of today also accept
honey as a 'Ram Ban' (very
effective) medicine for all kinds
of diseases.
Honey can be used without
any side effects for any kind of
diseases. (Locally produced
honey is better than just any
honey.)
Today's science says that even
though honey is sweet, if taken
in the right dosage as a medicine,
it does not harm diabetic
patients.
Weekly World News, a
magazine in Canada in its
issue dated 17 January, 1995 has
given the following list of
diseases that can be cured by
honey and cinnamon as
researched by western
scientists:

HEART DISEASES:
Make a paste of honey and
cinnamon powder, apply on
bread, instead of jelly and jam,
and eat it regularly for breakfast.
It reduces the cholesterol in the


arteries and saves the patient
from heart attack.
Also those who have already
had an attack, if they do this
process daily, they are kept
miles away from the next attack.
Regular use of the above
process relieves loss of breath
and strengthens the heart beat.
In America and Canada,
various nursing homes have
treated patients successfully and
have found that as you age, the
arteries and veins lose their
flexibility and get clogged;
honey and cinnamon revitalize
the arteries and veins.

ARTHRITIS:
Arthritis patients may take
daily, morning, and night, one
cup of hot water with two spoons
of honey and one small teaspoon
of cinnamon powder. If taken
regularly even chronic arthritis
can be cured.
In a recent research conducted
at the Copenhagen University, it
was found that when the doctors
treated their patients with a
mixture of one tablespoon honey
and half teaspoon cinnamon
powder before breakfast, they
found that within a week, out of
the 200 people so treated,
practically 73 patients were
totally relieved of pain, and
within a month, mostly all the
patients who could not walk


or move around because of
arthritis started walking without
pain.

BLADDER
INFECTIONS:
Take two tablespoons of
cinnamon powder and one
teaspoon of honey in a glass of
lukewarm water and drink it. It
destroys the germs in the
bladder.

CHOLESTEROL:
Two tablespoons of honey and
three teaspoons of cinnamon
powder mixed in 16 ounces of tea water, given to a cholesterol
patient, was found to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood by
10 percent within two hours.
As mentioned for arthritic patients, if taken three times a day, any
chronic cholesterol is cured.
According to information received in the said Journal, pure honey
taken with food daily relieves complaints of cholesterol.

COLDS:
Those suffering from the common or severe colds should take
one tablespoon lukewarm honey with 1/4 spoon cinnamon powder
daily for three days. This process will cure most chronic cough,
cold,and clear the sinuses.

UPSET STOMACH:
Honey taken with cinnamon powder cures stomach ache and also
clears stomach ulcers from the root.

GAS:
According to studies done in India and Japan, it is revealed that if

honey is taken with cinnamon
powder the stomach is relieved

IMMUNE SYSTEM:
Daily use of honey and
cinnamon powder strengthens
the immune system and protects
the body from bacteria and viral
attacks.
Scientists have found that
honey has various vitamins and
iron in large amounts. Constant
use of honey strengthens the
white blood corpuscles to fight
bacteria and viral diseases.

INDIGESTION:
Cinnamon powder sprinkled
on two tablespoons of honey
taken before food relieves
acidity and digests the heaviest
of meals.

INFLUENZA:
A scientist in Spain has proved
that honey contains a natural
'Ingredient' which kills the
influenza germs and saves the
patient from flu.


LONGEVITY:
Tea made with honey and
cinnamon powder, when taken
regularly, arrests the ravages of
old age.
Take four spoons of honey, one
spoon of cinnamon powder and
three cups of water and boil to
make like tea. Drink 1/4 cup,
three to four times a day. It
keeps the skin fresh and soft and
arrests old age. Life spans also
increases.

PIMPLES:
Three tablespoons of honey
and one teaspoon of cinnamon
powder paste. Apply this paste
on the pimples before sleeping
and wash it next morning with
warm water. If done daily for
two weeks, it removes pimples
from the root.

SKIN
INFECTIONS:
Applying honey and cinnamon
powder in equal parts on the
affected parts cures eczema,
ringworm and all types of skin
infections.


WEIGHT LOSS:
Daily in the morning one half
hour before breakfast on an
empty stomach and at night
before sleeping, drink honey and
cinnamon powder boiled in one
cup of water. If taken regularly,
it reduces the weight of even the
most obese person. Also,
drinking this mixture regularly
does not allow the fat to
accumulate in the body even
though the person may eat a
high calorie diet.

CANCER:
Recent research in Japan and
Australia has revealed that
advanced cancer of the stomach
and bones have been cured
successfully. Patients suffering
from these kinds of cancer
should daily take one tablespoon
of honey with one teaspoon of
cinnamon powder for one month
three time s a day.

FATIGUE:
Recent studies have shown
that the sugar content of honey
is more helpful rather than
being detrimental to the strength


of the body. Senior citizens, who
take honey and cinnamon
powder in equal parts, are more
alert and flexible. Dr. Milton,
who has done research, says that
a half tablespoon of honey taken
in a glass of water and sprinkled
with cinnamon powder, taken
daily after brushing and in the
afternoon at about 3:00 pm.
When the vitality of the body
starts to decrease, increases the
vitality of the body within a
week.

BAD BREATH:
People in South America, first
thing in the morning, gargle with
one teaspoon of honey and
cinnamon powder mixed in hot
water, so their breath stays fresh
throughout the day.

HEARING LOSS:
Daily morning and night
honey and cinnamon powder,
taken in equal parts restore
hearing.
Remember when we were
kids? We had toast with real
butter and cinnamon sprinkled
on it!

Three Suspects In Bogus

It took San Ignacio police
all day on Monday and Tuesday
to prepare the stack of 76
charges against all four accused.
And by Wednesday morning,
April 1, all the charges were
ready. Consequently, Denmark
Robert Murillo, Sylvin Everald
Bodden and Reknickle
Hemmans were formally
arrested and charged for five
counts each of the following four
crimes: i) Obtainingproperty by
deception, ii) Uttering a false
document, iii) Claiming upon
a forged document and
iv) Forgery.
San Ignacio police is holding
onto an additional 16 charges for
the absent, Kenneth Samuel
Jones. He stands accused for
four counts of the similar four
charges as the other three alleged
accomplices.
The task of reading the stack
of charges against Murillo,
Bodden and Hemmans, fell on
the shoulders of San Ignacio's
Magistrate, Kathleen Lewis.
The three accused appeared
