Working In Harmony For The Greater Good
And The Needy In Our Community
How wonderful it is when public service institutions are seen
to be joining forces and working in partnership with each other
for the greater good.
Like in most cases, progress and development flourishes in the
presence of harmony.
There is a familiar saying that goes something like this: "You
don't realize what you have until you lose it". Conversely, it
can likewise be said that: "You don't know what you have been
losing until you start getting it. "
What a wonderful surprise it was, for example, when a few
weeks after the February 2008 general election, the Ministry of
Works' heavy duty equipment were seen doing street repairs on
Bums Avenue in the heart of San Ignacio Town, a condition which
the community had not seen for several years. It has been so
long that at first sight the equipment looked weird operating in
town.
As the weeks and months progressed post general elections,
the community has seen an increasing level of collaboration
between the Ministry of Works and the Municipal Council. This
collaboration has resulted in the paving of the Benque Viejo Road
in San Ignacio as well as the paving of the lower half of George
Price Avenue in Santa Elena.
For five round years, between 2003 and 2008, while the United
Democratic Party was the municipal government in San Ignacio/
Santa Elena and the People's United Party was in Central
Government, the local Ministry of Works remained under strict
instructions not to come within a mile of any municipal project.
The Ministry of Works would not touch a single municipal
project, not even with a 10-foot pole.
In those days it was preferable for workers from the Ministryof
Works to remain on the compound playing cards and dominoes
instead of undertaking municipal street repairs as, in the narrow
minds of some politicians, such undertakings would make the
opposition municipal council look good thereby increasing its
changes for re-election.
The pressure was further compounded as opposition councils
were provided with the very bare minimum in terms of monthly
subventions and so the costly maintenance of municipal
infrastructure was woefully lacking and in many instances
impossible to undertake by municipal bodies. In the final
analysis it was the people that ended up being short changed in
terms of being provided with the goods and services financed
by way of the very taxes they pay.
The community is now beginning to realize the magnitude of
its losses over the years as it is only now getting its just share of
national goods and services.
When we witness this level of collaboration which was
lacking for many years, it somehow tends to reinforce the
perception, that with their eyes set squarely on the vote,
politicians are generally narrow-minded as they knowingly
engage in sacrificing the needs of the people on the political
alter, all in the name of their selfish personal political ambitions.
On a somewhat related note, this writer shares the widely held
view that if something is not broken; why fix it. We are
somehow getting the feeling however that the system for the
payment of social assistance is in dire need of urgent fixing.
Those people who make that monthly pilgrimage to Human
Services, for that small financial assistance, are the needy in the
community. However, their condition makes them no lesser
human beings than anyone else and, as such, they should be
treated with the same degree of respect and dignity as any
ordinary person instead of being seen and treated as beggars and

subjected to being given the run around.
If we understand it right, the current procedure for the
payment of social assistance is as follows. There are certain
clusters of persons who receive the assistance during specific
times of the month. On those days, the Social Services Officer,
under guard from a private security company, receives the cash
from the District Sub-Treasury and on that specific day, issues
the assistance. At a designated time, the payment closes and the
remaining cash is returned to the Treasury. Therefore, if for
whatever reason, a person was unable to make the pilgrimage to
the office on the designated date then that person must wait until
the next month to collect the little assistance.
It somehow appears that the antiquated process of issuing
social assistances has outgrown its self. The limited staff in the
office does not lend for the daily presence of an officer for the
purposes of issuing the assistance as in many cases the officer is
out of the office engaged in field work thereby depriving those
needy person of even the little hope of at least speaking to
someone who might be able to lend a sympathetic ear and work
a little magic to enable those needy persons to get the assistance
before next months round of hand outs.
What about the possibility, we ask, of relieving Social Service
Officers from the responsibility of distributing the assistance and
vesting that responsibility in the hands of employees from the
district sub-treasury whose
AYO E Adaily and primary responsibil-
WK SERVICE ity it already is to collect and
disburse government funds?

Give Me 16 Ounces For Every Pound Of Food I Buy


Dear Editor;
Just one question: When are we
going to get some serious
government agency to protect us
against, those unscrupelous
grocers who continue to short us
an ounce or two whenever we
purchase the prepackaged retail
food stuff off their shelves I am


refering here to items like rice,
beans, sugar and flour?
A. Lewis, Santa Elena, Cayo

ED Note: What you might
probably want to do is to first
start by protecting yourself as
you await the arrival of the
"serious government agency to


Dear Editor;
It is with utmost
disappointment that I listen to
the current allegations of
corruption within our medical
system.
Such a scandal only brings to
mind that at the end of the day,
the most affected are us, the poor
people.
It also reminds me about a
subject that for some reason or
the other is not been mentioned
in the news or Love FM's
morning show which I listen to
every morning.


That subject is the issue of
unethical business practices and
unfair competition currently
being practiced by private
medical professionals namely
the doctors as it relates to them
now operating pharmacies from
their clinics.
Almost every doctor you visit
now has his own pharmacy and
will, 99% of the times, prescribe
medication available at his
pharmacy rarely allowing you
the option to make your purchase
from another pharmacy.
While such a practice may not

How do I protect myself, you
might ask?
In most grocery stores there is
an electronic scale at the
counter which the clerk uses to
weight and charge customer for
items brought to the counter
like the bag of chicken, the
bag of potatoes, the single
onion or the sweet pepper.
Since the scale is already
there, you can place the
prepackaged bag of rice,
beans, sugar or flour on it to
confirm its weight.
If you are not satisfied with

question whether the patients' or
their pockets' well-being is now

need; or that they are being

no obligation to purchase it.
As you continue this practice
and hopefully making the
discrepancy known, there will
soon be other customers who
willfollow your lead.
The problem will arise
however when the merchant
moves the scale out ofthe reach
of customers. When this
happens it should serve asyour
cue that the grocer is hell bent
on being dishonest. It is at this
point that you might want to
seriously consider shifting your
purchases to another store.

One Year Later Court Order Defied

No Health, No Safety For Chalillo Dam


Submitted by Candy and
George Gonzalez, San Ignacio
Town, Cayo
To refresh our memories,
the Belize Institute of Environ-
mental Law and Policy
(BELPO), acting on behalf
of people and communities
downstream of the dam projects,
charged that the Department of
Environment failed to monitor
and ensure adherence to the
Environmental Compliance Plan
(ECP) for the Chalillo Dam
On June 30, 2008, the
Supreme Court of Belize ruled
that an ECP is a binding
agreement that imports duties to
the parties. To date, those
orders have not been
implemented.
Though many sections of the
ECP were not met, BELPO
focused on the ones with the
most immediate health and
safety concerns for the
downstream population: water
quality, mercury levels in the
fish, putting in place a dam break
warning system and emergency
preparedness plan and informing
the public and seeking their
participation and awareness.


As the hurricane season
approached, BELPO wrote the
Prime Minister, hand delivering
the letter on April 27, 2009.
Copies were hand delivered, on
that same day, to the Minister
of Natural Resources and
the Environment, the Minister
of Public Utilities, National
Emergency Management
(NEMO), Transport and
Communication, and the
Minister of Health.
The only formal response was
from NEMO. Yet, we still have
no dam break early warning
system and the people have no
idea what to do in case of an
emergency.
We do not know about the
mercury levels in the fish from
the Macal River or how much
fish can be safely eaten and we
do not know the quality of the
water in the river.
There has been no exchange
of information or public
participation.
When sirens went off a few
weeks ago in San Ignacio, no
one, including the Town
Council Office, knew what they
meant, if anything.


(L-R) Candy and
As we go about sharing
information with you, we
reproduce herewith the letter to

April 2009
Hon. Dean Barrow,
Prime Minister & Minister of
Finance
Office of The Prime Minister
Sir. Edney Cain Building,
Belmopan City

Dear Mr. Prime Minister;
On April 20, 2009, I spoke
with the Honourable Gaspar
Vega along with Chief Environ-
mental Officer, Martin Alegria
about the Department of
Environment's failure to assure
the Environmental Compliance


George Gonzalez
Plan (ECP) for the Chalillo Dam
was being enforced.
Mr. Alegria stated that NEMO
was the reason there was no dam
break early warning system for
the Chalillo Dam.
I had spoken to Mr. Westby of
NEMO who had told me the
previous month that NEMO had
signed off on the system and it
was up to BECOL.
This letter is being written
upon the advise of the
Honourable Gaspar Vega who
indicated that by writing you and
copying the Minister in charge
of NEMO, the Minister in
charge of Health and himself,
we might get the matter

Clear And Present Danger For The Reef


BY: Candy Gonzalez
Contact#: 501 824-2476


SAN IGNACIO TOWN,
Cayo, Wednesday, July 1,
2009:
Recognizing the fact that our
World Heritage Site is in danger
is an important first step in
improving our efforts to save it.
The potential for our inclusion
on the "World Heritage in
Danger" list is a positive thing,
presenting both an opportunity
and a challenge.
Much of the attention over the
last week has focused on a
perceived 'threat' to the tourism
industry from a danger listing -
but this is not likely.


Background
In November, 2004, Belize
Institute of Environmental Law
and Policy (BELPO), with
support from many Belize
Alliance of Conservation NGOs
(BACONGO) members and
others, filed a petition asking the
World Heritage Committee to
designate the Belize Barrier
Reef System World Heritage Site
as a "World Heritage Site, In
Danger" to bring attention
to the threats to the Reef,
particularly from climate
change, and seek to give it more
protection.
Similar Petitions were filed for
the Huascaron Glacier Park
(Peru) and Mount Everest
(Nepal).
In 2005, 2006, and 2007
representatives of the petitioning
groups tried to get the World
Heritage Committee to recog-
nize the petitions and address
climate change. In February
2006, Dr. Melanie McField went
to Paris to give expert testimony
in front of the World Heritage
Committee as to the state of the
Belize Barrier Reef System


jVSURANCE COMPANY LIIV-IFre

HOME PROTECTOR INSURANCE COMPANY
LIMITED takes this opportunity to inform our
Valued Customers and the Public in general of the
relocation of our office.

40 9M J 4 X1 DI V A 'I


Reminding you that at HOME PROTECTOR we
continue providing you with the same high
quality of Insurances Services that you have
always expected from us.


(BBRS).
The Committee decided not to
list these sites in danger due to
climate change, but produced a
special report on the threat of
climate change on World
Heritage Sites and began
looking closer at the manage-
ment systems in these World
Heritage Sites.
The Petition was based on the
premise that the reef was
suffering from great damage due
to climate change but other
factors, like tourism, cruise
ships, loosely controlled coastal
development, and overfishing
were making matters worse.
What Now?
UNESCO's current recom-
mendation to put the BBRS on
the In Danger List was a result
of their findings during a
weeklong visit in March. It
considers past problems, as in
the Bacalar Chico and Pelican
Cayes, and more recent
Environmental Impact Assess-
ment (EIA) proposals currently
being considered within the
World Heritage Site (WHS).
Numerous parts of the WHS,
mainly mangrove islands, were
actually sold to individuals
(local and foreign) in direct
contravention to their status as a
World Heritage Site since 1996.
Putting the BBRS on the "In
Danger" list is a positive step
for the reef. It is something that
can bring international focus as
well as funding to management
efforts. Once Belize has taken
steps to better protect the World
Heritage Site, it can be removed
from the "In Danger" list.
The Galapagos World Heritage
Site was put on the World
Heritage In Danger list in June
2007. The President of Ecuador,
Rafael Correa, along with the
Charles Darwin Foundation,
supported the action in order to
draw attention to the greater
management effort needed
to ensure the long-term
conservation of this site, with
support from UNESCO and
other international bodies.
It was not perceived as a
condemnation of the country but
as a positive step to signal
an increase in the level of
management, recognition of its
fragility and its need for protec-
tion from over fishing, pollution,
natural disasters, problems with
managing tourism, despite


having some of the strictest
regulations on development and
tourism anywhere.
Sound familiar? It is. Those
problems along with loosely
controlled coastal development
and even the sale of portions of
the BBRS are exactly what our
World Heritage Site faces and
the reason why it is in need of
added protection. Ignoring the
problems, as the previous
government chose to do, will
only make matters worse.
We should embrace this
chance to improve the BBRS
World Heritage Site's manage-
ment defenses and encourage all
who care about the Reef to work
together to protect it for future
generations.
We join with all those calling
on the Government to make
every effort to implement the
following recommendations
Cancel all land leases and
titles granted within the Belize
Barrier Reef Reserve System
(BBRS) World Heritage Site that
took place after 1996
Place a permanent
prohibition on the sale /lease of
lands within the WHS
Prohibit dredging and al-
terations of mangroves within
and in close proximity to the
WHS
Complete, adopt and
implement the Coastal Zone
Management Plan
Adopt and implement the
revisions aimed at strengthening
the Mangrove Protection Regu-
lations
Fill gaps in marine protected
areas, including an increase in
the amount of marine territory
under full protection (now less
than 4%)
Revise the Environmental
Impact Assessment Regulations
and process to include stronger
consideration for the cumulative
impacts of developments
Adopt and implement the
National Protected Areas
Co-Management Framework for
Belize
We urge the government to
keep collaborating with
non-governmental partners.
Unfortunately, reversing the
trend of reef decline is
increasingly more difficult.
Strong leadership and tough
management decisions are now
required to prevent this
magnificent natural treasure
from slipping away, both in
name and in actuality.

OAS Seeks The Restoration Of Ousted Honduran President


TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras,
Thursday, July 2, 2009:
While the situation remains
somewhat tense in Honduras
since last Sunday's coup which
resulted in the overthrowing of
President Manuel Zelaya;
Secretary General of the
Organization ofAmerican States
(OAS), Jose Miguel Insulza,
announced that he will be
visiting that troubled Central
American nation on Friday in an
effort to seek the return of the
ousted president to office.
"We hope the coup leaders
recognize the damage they are
doing to the country and the
world and allow the return of
President Zelaya," said OAS
Secretary-General Jose Miguel
Insulza whilst attending a
meeting of Caricom Heads of
Government in Guyana.
Insulza informed that the OAS
has given Honduras' caretaker
government until Saturday to
restore Zelaya or be suspended
from the body and that he will
be visiting Honduras, not to
negotiate, but rather with the
sole purpose of restoring Zelaya
to office.
President Manuel Zelaya was
ousted in a military coup last
Sunday in a dispute over
presidential term limits which is
an issue that has since evolved
into the biggest political crisis in
Central America since the U.S.
invasion of Panama in 1989.
Honduran coup backers,
headed by interim president
Roberto Micheletti, argue that
the overthrowing of Zelaya was
legally ordered by the Supreme
Court in an effort to stop him
from trying to extend the
four-year term in office and that
Zelaya was acting illegally in
seeking to amend the country's
constitution.
While the state run TV
station showed images of a
march by several thousand
anti-Zelaya protesters, many
wearing the national colors of
blue and white as they took to
the streets of San Pedro Sula,
the same broadcaster chose not
to show images of a pro-Zelaya
protest of roughly the same size
in the capital, Tegucigalpa.
"OAS: We want democracy,
not Chavez," one banner read
at an anti- Zelaya rally.
Over the past several months
Zelaya popularity is said to be


low especially amoung the
wealthier conservative elite
resulting from Zelaya's alliance
with Venezuelan President,
Hugo Chavez.
Zelaya's popularity had fallen
to around 30 percent in recent
polls as he was pushing for a
referendum to change the
constitution in Honduras, an
impoverished coffee and
textile exporting country with a
population of about 7.5 million.
Since his ouster, Zelaya has
indicated that he intends to
return from Panama to
Honduras as president, but only
to serve out the remainder of his
term, which ends in January,
2010.
However, the interim


government informed that he
will be arrested as soon as he sets
foot on Honduran soil.
The interim government has
not mince words in saying that
Zelaya does not have a chance
of returning to office.
Like most Central American
nations, the European Union has
condemned the coup and EU
president Sweden said all the
ambassadors from the 27 nation
bloc had left Honduras.
No foreign government has
yet talked of sanctions against
Honduras but Central American
neighbors suspended border
trade for two days this week.
Any economic embargo could
harm coffee supplies, which
have so far been untouched by


the turmoil.
The Honduran Congress
approved a decree on
Wednesday to crack down on
opposition during a nightly
curfew imposed after the coup.

Galen Summer Activities


Is In Full Swing


GALEN UNIVERSITY,
Central Farm, Cayo,
Thursday, July 2, 2009:
Summer courses on the
campus of Galen University,
mile 62.5, Western Highway are
in full swing.
In the company of University
of Indianapolis (UINDY)
visiting professors Stephen
Nawrocki and Sherry Gibbs,
students are trekking through the
orange orchard, not to pick fruit,
but to check the status of a
decaying pig for the Intro to
Forensic Anthropology course.
Under the watchful eye of Dr.
Tesecum other students in the
Exploring Animal Health and
Diseases course are making
their way through the farms of
the Cayo and Stann Creek
districts to observe, diagnose,
and help educate farmers in
techniques aimed at strengthen
their animal management
practices.
Additionally, in the
surrounding villages of the Cayo
District students assist the local
humane society in offering
villagers free spay and neuter
clinics for their pets while
veterinarian Dr. Paquet-
Durand is shepherding students
through the "Wildlife ofBelize"
course by spending two days and
one night at the Belize Zoo
examining birds, reptiles, and
mammals and, among other
activities, interacting with the
Black Howler monkeys at the
Community Baboon Sanctuary.
With Dr. Colin Young,
budding ethnobotanists have
traveled to Masewal Mayan
Forest Garden to learn about the
Maya system of healing and the
multiple uses of local plants.
Some of Galen's summer
courses seek to better serve
practicing teachers.
The special summer program
for teachers runs from June 29,
after schools have closed, right
to to August 8.
Under the guidance of Dr.
Filiberto Penados and Dr.
Alberto August, education
students will learn how to better
plan and manage their
classrooms to ensure all children
in their care have the best chance
to achieve their goals.
Students will be engaged in a


critical examination of the social
context of schooling and
Dr. Penados will mentor
teachers enrolled in Education
and Society and Classroom
Management.
Not to be outdone, the arts
have been the focus in courses,
such as Digital Photography,
whose students will exhibited
their beautiful works on
Saturday, June 27 at the Mall in
downtown San Ignacio.
Photos ranging from the
abstract to a poignant image of
a woman praying her rosary
testify that the students have
been able to, as the theme of the
exhibit indicates, ReFrame their
vision of the world.
For students who don't feel
artistic even a course entitled
Beginning Drawing may have
seemed intimidating. However,
under the sensitive guidance of
UINDY visiting lecturer
Marilyn McElwain, students
have surprised themselves with
the pencil and charcoal line
drawings and the attempts to
create the illusion of three
dimensional drawings.
For the first time the
University is offering a
combined course Introduction
to Theater/Theatre Production.
Under the leadership of UINDY
visiting lecturer Cate Moran
whereby students are engaged in
dramatizing Belizean poems and
a play depicting the sometimes
frustrating, often adventurous,
ride through the streets of San
Ignacio Town.
One of the most innovative
courses is the two-week
intensive course in Sustainable
Development. The University
Provost, Dr. Adamson led
students through a process of
visioning the sustainable world
they would like to pass on to
their children, finding
information on the state of the
world today, developing a
roadmap to get to the sustainable
world of the future, and making
an action plan to start them on
the journey to that world.
Please be reminded that
applications for Fall 2009 are
being accepted online at

One Year Later Court Order Defied -
No Health, No Safety For Chalillo Dam


addressed.
As you are aware, on June 30,
2008, the Supreme Court
ordered the Department of
Environment (DOE) to fulfill
certain obligations of the
ECP for the Chalillo Dam.
In Paragraph 78 of the decision
(BELPO v Department of
Environment/ Ministry of
Natural Resources, Supreme
Court of Belize Claim number
302 of2007), the Court declared
that "(i) .. the ECP imports
duties on BECOL the fourth
respondent which the
defendant the DOE is lawfully
bound to see implemented and
fulfilled;" and ordered that "(iii)
. the Dam Break Early
Warning System and the
communications system to
relay a possible dam break
flash flood be routinely tested
or simulated for effectiveness,
particularly between June
and November each year;"
ordered that "(iv) .. the DOE
to require BECOL to carry out
public information programme
explaining to the local
population along the Macal
River in the vicinity of the
Chalillo Dam, the health risks
associated with high levels of
mercury in fish;" ordered that
"(v) . the taxa richness of
benthic communities be
included as a relevant
parameter in monitoring and
testing the water quality in
Chalillo;.."
In November 2008, BECOL
held a public information
session in San Ignacio Town
along with presenters from
Public Health and the
Department of Environment. At
that time, concern was raised
about the absence of a dam break
early warning system, the lack
of information on water quality
and the lack of information on
mercury levels in the fish.
The Public Health Officer
stated that studies had been done
and warned that fish from the


Macal River did contain
high levels of mercury. But
that information was not
disseminated to the public, in
general. Concerning the water
quality tests, it was stated they
were "too expensive" to carry
out. Yet people said they and
people they knew had suffered
and were suffering from various
intestinal problems.
When Mr. Lynn Young
appeared on LOVE FM's
Morning Show on March 16,
2009, a caller asked him about
these things. He said that
NEMO was the reason there was
no dam break early warning
system. He then said the reason
there were problems about
getting reliable testing done on
the water and on the fish was due
to "9-11".
When this was brought to Mr.
Alegria's attention, he said Mr.
Young was 'joking". It is no
joking matter especially when it
was broadcast on the radio.
As another "hurricane
season" approaches, the
majority of the obligations are
still unmet. We say we are a
nation that respects the "rule of
law" yet, in the past, rich and
powerful businesses and people
flaunt and hold themselves
above our laws.
We ask that you urgently
address these serious matters.
People are worried about the
lack of any dam break warning
system and there is great concern
over the safety of the water and
fish of the Macal River.
We believe you have done a
great deal to address the abuse
of power of the previous
administration and its
"friends". We sincerely hope
you can get the Court's order
implemented.
Sincerely, Candy B.
Gonzalez, for the Belize
Institute ofEnvironmental Law
and Policy (BELPO) acting
on behalf of the people and
communities downstream of
the dam projects.

A Matter That Needs Urgent Attention


the Business Bureau, the
Pharmacists Association, the
Doctors Association, and or the
Government of Belize to look
into this now instead of waiting
until another huge scandal (or
casualties) develops before
actions are taken to address this
important issue.
Besides putting the peoples'
health and pockets at risk, I also
believe that such a business
practice is very unfair to the
Pharmacist who spent many
years studying and getting
certified so that he could open
his own Pharmacy only to find
out now that the only business
available to him or her is the little
that has escaped the Doctors'
grasps.
It is also my understanding,
from speaking to colleagues
within the Pharmaceuticals
industry, that many of these
doctors do not employ certified,
qualified pharmacists even

With such a loose system, how
do we know that we are being
given the right medicine every
time we visit the Doctor or
whether we are being given an
inferior product that needs to be
moved from inventory? How
about controlled drugs? Who
monitors to make sure that these
Doctors are not over-prescribing
or allowing controlled drugs to
hit the streets un-noticed?
Editor, issues like the one
I am addressing are very
oppressive to the poor populace
but are often times left
untouched because they favor
the rich minority. For that
reason, I would like to thank you
for allowing me to express my
concerns and for giving me the
opportunity of send out a call to
the proper and relevant
authorities to address this
problem before it gets too late.
