Public Notice


PUBLIC UTILITIES
COMMIS 1 N


Public Utilities Commission (PUC)


PUBLIC UTILITIES
COMMISSION


The Public Utilities Commission (hereinafter referred to as "the Commission") hereby serves Notice this day, June 1, 2009, to all
Interested Parties, including the Belize Water Services Limited (BWS) and the general public, that BWS has made an application
to the Commission for adjustments to the existing tariffs.

BWS submitted its "Application for Adjustment to Tariffs" based on "Notified Items" pursuant to Section 37A of the Water and
Sewerage (Tariffs) Byelaws, which states: "In the case of notified items, where upon application by a licensee it has been proved
by the said licensee to the satisfaction of the PUC that adjustments to Tariffs are necessary, the PUC may without conducting Full
Tariff review proceedings or Annual Review proceedings approve adjustments to Tariffs. "

Definition of Notified Items as contained in the Byelaws: "Notified Items" means unavoidable costs incurred by a licensee
proved to the satisfaction of the PUC and are costs due to factors outside of a licensee's control being one or a combination of
bad debt costs, electricity rate costs, interest costs or inflation."

To this end, the Commission is inviting all Interested Parties to make comments and representations with respect to the application
by BWS before a Decision on the application is issued by the Commission.

BWS Application:

BWS has applied for a tariff increase of eight percent (8%) based solely on the Notified Item of Inflation, which it claims has risen
by a compounded 15.6% from 2005 to 2008, based on annual inflation rates over the period of 3.7%, 4.2%, 2.3% and 4.6%, as
reported by the International Monetary Fund (IMF), with the rate for 2008 being a "provisional" figure.

BWS cites that no tariff adjustment for Inflation has been effected for the company since 2005, and that the increasing cost (due to
inflation) of goods and services it must access has reduced available cash, putting it in a position where it is unable to fund
adequate maintenance, unable to invest in service expansion, unable to provide the regulated rate of return to shareholders and
unable to hold adequate cash to expedite recovery from a major disaster, and "where it cannot generate enough revenue from
operations to meet it investment obligations ".

BWS submitted the following comparative table to demonstrate its financial position and justify its application:

BWS Actual Revenue and Costs compared to
PUC approved 2004 2009 Business Plan (Figures in BZS'000)

Definition of Interested Party:

Definition of Interested Party as contained in the Byelaws: "interested party" means any person, customer or entity having an
interest or concern in the outcome of an application or proceeding before the PUC "

Comments:

The deadline for comments and representations to be received from Interested Parties is Friday, June 12, 2009.

Public Hearing:

The intended date for a public hearing, if one is required, is Wednesday June 17, 2009.

Chavez Launches $15 Mobile Phone


BY: Rory Carroll
CARACAS, Venezuela, SA
Wednesday, May 13, 2009:
Chavez launches $15 mobile
phone with a name to make his
mother blush. The Venezuelan
President predicts that the
Vergatario will be a bestseller
worldwide.
It is perhaps the world's
cheapest mobile phone. It is the
latest offering from Hugo
Chavez's socialist revolution.
And its name is derived from a
slang word for penis. Behold the
Vergatorio.
Venezuela's president launched
the handset on his TV show with
a Mother's Day call to his mum
and predicted it would conquer
all rivals. "This telephone will
be the biggest seller not only in
Venezuela but the world," he
said. "Whoever doesn't have a
Vergatario is nothing," he
joked.
Priced just $15 (nearly 10),
the phone has a camera, WAP
internet access, FM radio and
MP3 and MP4 players for
music and videos. And it has that
name.
Why the president chose
it remains unclear, but he
enunciates each syllable with a
grin. Some laugh, others are
affronted.
Verga is slang for penis and
vergatario is a newly minted
word which signifies excellent


but retains connotations from its
root.
The word verga, and variations
of it, are associated with
Venezuela's second city,
Maracaibo. Residents are
famous for swearing and using
Spanish verbal constructions
uncommon in the rest of
Venezuela.
"It's gross. I can't believe they
named it something so vulgar,"
said Leonor Diaz, 52, a cleaner.
Others however consider the
name playful and harmless.
The newspaper El Universal
issued readers a challenge. "Say
Vergatario in front of a mirror.
Pronounce this obscenity
syllable by syllable, slowly, and
note the expression on your
face."
Chavez, a decade in power, is
a shrewd communicator who of-
ten uses salty expressions to
mark himself out as a man of the
people. He called George Bush
a "pendejo", a term derived
from pubic hair which can be
translated as asshole or jerk.
A government subsidy which
cut the retail price to a quarter
of the manufacturing cost is
likely to make the Vergatario an
immediate hit. There is a
waiting list for the first 10,000
units expected to be released this
week.
Production this year has been set
at 600,000, rising to 2m in 2011,


Aa4- bs Lis*


when the government hopes to
export the model to the
Caribbean and then further
afield.
Parts are imported from China
and assembled in a factory in
western Venezuela run by a new
company, Vetelca, 85% owned
by the Venezuelan state and 15%
by the Chinese company ZTE.
The government, facing a


financial crunch and labour
unrest over tumbling oil
revenues, said the investment
would boost the country's
"technological independence".
Chavez turned a segment of
his weekly TV show into a
promotion. "Has your
Vergatorio arrived?" he asked
his mother. "This is thefirst call
I've made with my Vergatorio."

*STAR HUMOR
Controlling The Wife


Three men were sitting in a bar
discussing the level of control
they have over their wives
The first two kept bragging
about how they can stay out as
late as they want and that their
wives never say a word because
they are the boss and they can
get their wives to do anything.
They looked at the third man
and he said, "That's nothing, I
have my wife so under control


that the other day I had her
crawling towards me on her
hands and knees."
The other men were very
impressed and asked him how he
had managed to pull off that
onet.
The man replied, "Well, I
dashed under the bed and she
came crawling towards me
while shouting, 'Come out and
fight like a man!"'


Passing The Ball


The huge college football
player figured he'd try out for
the football team.
"Can you tackle?" asked the
coach.
"Watch this," said the player
as he proceeded to run smack
into a telephone pole, shattering
it to splinters.
"Wow," said the coach. "I'm
impressed. Can you run?"
"Of course I can run," said
the player. He was off like a shot,
and in just over nine seconds, he
had run a hundred yard dash.


"Great!" enthused the coach.
"But can you pass afootball? "
The player rolled his eyes,
hesitated for a few seconds, then
said "Well, sir, if I can
swallow it, I can probably pass
it."

Trinidad and Tobago, along with
the C-CETT principals and
teachers will be hosted by
Belize's Minister of Education,
Hon. Patrick Faber, at a
welcome dinner on June 1st,

Dear Editor,
Is there anybody anywhere
who can do something about all
those derelict and scrapped
vehicles on Bullet Tree Road
right here in San Ignacio Town.
I am calling our our Area Rep-
resentative, the Mayor and
Counsellors to visit the area
especially ata around 8:00 am on
weekdays so that they may see
for themselves how our children
and even regular pedestrians
must dangerously maneuver
between these unsightly vehicles
and passing traffic.
I pray that some corrective
action be taken before it is too
late as last week's dead of
little Jose Garcia Jr., by traffic
accident on the streets of Belize
City, is still fresh in our minds.
The other concern I want to
bring up is the dangerous
practice of village buses letting
off primary students at the cor-
ner of Bullet Tree Road and Jo-
seph Andrews Drive as we see
these children dangerous rush-
ing across that busy intersection
on their way to Sacred Heart
Primary School.
As a possible solution, I sug-
gest that one of those many traf-
fic Wardens, posted in down
town San Ignacio, be tempo-
rarily posted to this area between
school hours and ensure that
these buses let off passenger
f 1 1


ABelize

Botanic


Joseph Andrews drive where
they can disembark with in-
creased safety. After monitoring
the situation for a few weeks,
this Warden can return to the
downtown area provided that
bus operators understand that
this dangerous intersection is not
a passenger disembarkation
point.
Some in authority might say
that speed bumps were recently
installed in the area to slow
down traffic. This is true but
there are still some wreckless
drivers who do not respect these
speed bumps. and
The third issue of concern is all
that noise coming from Legend
Nightclub.
People living in the area have
been complaining about this
matter for many years but their
complaints have been falling of
deaf ears.
The owners of this club should
show some consideration for the
neighbours, especially student
who need to study and young
children who must get a good
night's rest if they are to develop
physically and mentally. There
is also all those hard working
men and women living in the
area who should get a good
night's sleep if they must get up
early to go to work.
Apart from the noise there is
also the fighting and cursing that
takes place in the bar. This is

Student Narrowly Escapes

The HanMman's Noose


CANBERRA, Australia,
Wednesday, June 3, 2009:
(Reuters) -
A student who fell with a
noose around his neck during a
mock class hanging that was ar-
ranged by teachers has enraged
Australian authorities.
The high school student
fell from a table while
fellow students, under the
supervision of a teacher, were
photographing a staged hanging
as part of an English class
project.
"It beggars belief that such
an incident could take place,"
Queensland state Education
Minister Geoff Wilson told
local radio on Wednesday.
"I'm a parent. The last thing
I've ever wanted any of my
children to do is put a rope
around their neck," Wilson
said.


Students and teachers rushed
to the boy and cut the rope when
he fell, Education Queensland
Assistant Director-General Lyn
McKenzie said, although local
newspapers said the boy turned
blue before he was freed.
The student was allowed to go
home with his mother after
being examined by paramedics,
while authorities launched an
investigation into how the
incident occurred.

Tong's Justice Rapidly Becoming The Town's Justice


By: Ancientson
SAN IGNACIO TOWN,
Wednesday, 3 June, 2009:
We heard this week of
Saturday night's shooting death
of Richard Flores, 19, as he and
an accomplis attempted to rob
Tong's Supermarket on Baymen
Avenue in Belize City.
The would-be robber was shot
dead by the Chinese proprietor
of the store.
We have heard the familiar
saying that, "Justice Delayed
Is Justice Denied".
The now deceased, young boy,
Richard Flores, was charged
with several counts of attempt
murder for having thrown a
grenade into a crowd of innocent
bystanders, as they line the
streets to watch the annual
September Carnival Parade.
This cowardly act could have
resulted in unmatched mass
casualties.
Flores was arrested and taken
before the courts but justice for
this would-be mass murderer
was delayed. However, eight
months later this boy's life
abruptly ended. He was cut
down. His life was taken during
a foul attempt at a robbery.
The question must therefore
be asked "Was justice
delivered swiftly? In this
instance, Justice was delivered
not by the courts, but by a jury
of his own actions.
It is indeed a sad day for
Belize, when the acts of justice
or what justice stands for has to
be exacted by the consequential
hand of society itself.
We are now faced with an
unpredictable up turn in the
facades of justice in which our
worst fears our worst
nightmares have been realized,
being the birth of vigilantism
to solve the issue of rampant,
escalating, violent crimes.
It is heart wrenching when
we hear the news of a
businessmen, in the act of
protecting his own life and his
property, has resulted in him
taking a life. We hear the silent
whispers in the corners of
society like: "well done", "it is
about time", "another robber
to the grave", and we celebrate
with a silent, but tempered
satisfaction that this person
no longer roams our streets.
To think that an individual who
carried the intent of harming


innocent people walked free in
our society only to commit
further crimes. He was
eventually and ironicallyjudged
by an indiscriminate bullet that
served only to protect the lives
which he sought to take is far
cry from poetic justice.
Belize has always been, like
most democratic countries, a
"Nation of laws"; however we
rely on the system of things to
maintain the laws of the land and
create the necessary order.
The courts in our country are
vested with the power and
authority to try offenders and
convict them where possible and
eventually send them away to
prison.
Had justice been swift and not
delayed, then certainly Mr. Tong
would not have carried the
burden of living the nightmare
of having done the job that a
proper justice system should


have done but failed to do.
We are creating a most
unsatisfying precedent among
ourselves, a precedent which
states, that if the courts cannot
resolve the dispute, then we shall
take matters into our hands and
resolve it on our own.
So what now, Does Mr. Tong
receive the honor of a hero, the
sympathy of a victim or is he
named as a paradox that cements
the loop holes within our legal
system?
Do we tip our hats to him or
do we condemn the system that
has made him an unexpected
champion of the people's right
and liberties?
God only knows how Mr. Tong
sleeps at night with the strain
that such a dreadful incident has
had on his family, his conscience
and his life.
Yes, Mr. Tong's justice has
become the justice that the Town


now seeks to exact in order to
remedy the failures of our
system.
We are now creating a
maddening acceptance of
disbelief in our legal system and
strong belief in the exacting of
personal and vindictive revenge
in the form of one's own idea of
justice.
If left unanswered or
unchecked our society of laws
shall depreciate into a society of
lawlessness, as the scales of
justice is tipped with revenge on
one side and death on the other.
There is no reason for us to pay
the price of freedom by causing
death or punishment. That
responsibility is reserved for the
hands of the gatekeepers and
caretakers of the law itself. No
one else should carry that
burden for the state, but as of
recent, if this is the modus
operandi, then so shall it be -
and then law shall be no more.

A BLOODY WEEKEND IN TOWN


The case has been placed on a
seven weeks adjournment
with the next hearing set for
Thursday, July 23, 2009.
Our investigations revealed
that on Saturday, May 30, the
deceased, Selvin Carlos
Garcia, along with a friend also
from Santa Familia village, were
drinking in Santa Elena Town
when they were attacked by a
group of boys at a bar on Carillo
Puerto Avenue, Santa Elena. The
friend, Arscenio Cano, emerged
from the attack with an injury
to the face. At around 7:30 that
Saturday night they visited the
San Ignacio police and reported
the attack.
Realizing the drunken state in
which they were in, the police
transported Garcia and Cano to
the river crossing near Branch
Mouth and watched as they
crossed the rope bridge.
They reportedly continued
drinking at a bar in the village
and when the bar closed at
around 11:30 pm, the deceased
along with three brothers
boarded a taxi that had gone to
the crossing to drop off a
passenger and proceeded to San
Ignacio Town stopping off at the
Cocanatz Pit Pan Bar in the area
of the bus terminal in San
Ignacio Town.
When it became clear that
the deceased could no longer
sponsor the drinks, the three
brothers reportedly departed
leaving the deceased in the
company of a male, San Ignacio
Town resident.
Having apparently had too
much to drink, the deceased
rested his head on a table inside
the bar and fell asleep. At about
1:30 am he was shaken from a
deep slumber and ordered to
leave the bar. He staggered out
of the bar with the San Ignacio
friend following behind. While
they were walking away from
the bar they reportedly came
upon a group of persons outside
and one of them ordered the San
Ignacio friend to remove the red
warm cap he was wearing.
Some harsh words were
exchanged and the San Ignacio
friend was punched in the face.
He reportedly fell to the ground,
sprang to his feet and ran off.
The group then reportedly turned
their attention to deceased


and attacked him. When the
commotion subsided, the victim
was left on the ground bleeding.
San Ignacio police reports
rushing to the scene where, in
front of the recently opened
Alliance Bank, they came upon
a male person on the ground
bleeding from injuries to the
body. The injured person was
rushed to the emergency room at
the San Ignacio Town Hospital
where he was being treated for
a stab wound to the right side of
the abdomen and another to the
left side of the chest. He did not
survive the injuries and is
reported to have passed away
about 30 minutes after he was
admitted.
The deceased was subsequently
identified as Selvin Carlos
Garcia, 16, Belizean laborer
from Santa Familia Village,
Cayo. The body was transported
to the morgue at the Karl
Heusner Memorial Hospital on
Monday, June 1, where the post
mortem examination, conducted
by Forensic Specialist, Dr.
Mario Estradabran, certified
the cause of death as
"exsanguinations internal
and external bleeding due to
stab wounds to chest and
abdomen." For the purpose of
the post mortem examination,
the father, Marcel Carlos
Garcia, identified the deceased
as his eldest son.
The deceased was laid to rest
on Tuesday, June 2, in his home
village, Santa Familia.
