With five criminal charges

midnight on Saturday, July 4,

the screams of a girl, shouting
that she was shot and that she did
not want to die.

Unless Firm Action is Taken...........The People Will
Continue Hurting And Maybe Even Killing Each Other
We report this week of yet another senseless incident
landing one set in jail and the other, "fortunately", this time,
in the hospital and not in the graveyard.
By the time the accused comes to their senses, after the
alcoholic beverages have subsided, they realize the
foolishness of their actions. Unfortunately by then it's too
late and impossible to undo that which has been done as they
sit and say "if only I knew."
It is only after the act has been committed that they realize
all the hardships they bring to bear, not only upon themselves,
but also upon their immediate families.
There is hardly any greater love than the natural love of a
mother for her child, and so when the mother saw the battered
face of her son as he took the defendant's stand in court, her
initial reaction was "look how them beat up mi son. Why are
those who beat up my son not likewise charged for attempt
murder?"
The natural love for her offspring totally overshadowed the
fact that her child stands accused of almost taking the life of
another human being which was the catalyst that ignited the
incident.
Like in most instances, the mother in this particular case is a
decent, respectable and hard working individual, who most
naturally would prefer to be at work instead of being in court
to witness her child facing serious criminal charges. Oh the
hardships these guys bring upon their loved ones all because
of a split second of foolishness.
By now the police should have realized that the excessive
consumption of liquor is at the core of 99% of the crimes of
violence taking place in the community. Their crime
prevention responsibilities should therefore be geared towards
addressing this root cause of violent crimes.
Realizing the need to impose restrictions on the sale of
alcoholic beverages, lawmakers in their wisdom saw it fit and
proper to regulate the activities of establishments engaged in
the sale of liquor. Restaurants, for example, by law must close
at midnight. There are a few restaurant owners who, in
blatant violation of the law, continue dispensing alcoholic
beverages, way beyond the midnight hour.
Selfishly realizing the dangers of their actions, these law
breaking restaurant owners close their doors well before the
midnight hour and begin dispensing the rum through a hole in
a front window almost as if saying "you can drink and get
drunk out there and kill each other if you want, but in my
restaurant you will not be, because I will not allow you to
harm me in your drunkenness". Then the drinking
continues as different sets begin to arrive and after a while
disrespect steps in and "beefs" are created.
In some cases the "beef" might be settled on the spot, and
in other instances it is carried away to be settled at a later date
all because the law breaking restaurant owner provided the
fertile ground for the germination of the "beef'.
We write from experience because we live, work and
recreate just across the street from one such establishment,
the scene where a girl came within inches of losing her life
this weekend.
The law regulating these establishments is in place but frankly
speaking the police is simply not enforcing them. It's almost
1:30 this Friday morning. We are working on this weekend's
edition of the newspaper, we hear the usual commotion

outside. The restaurant is still open (almost one and a half
hours after the legal closing time) the crowd is growing
because they know that it's one of the after hours watering
holes.
The police arrives. He goes to the hole and tells the
restaurant operator to close and that he does not want to see
the place open when he circles back. The police drives off
leaving the place still open.
This is the umpteenth time that this individual is warned but
the violation continues every single night, especially so on
weekends.
The law is on your side Mr. Policeman, you are fully aware
that the excessive consumption of alcoholic beverages is at
the root of most of the crimes of violence with which you
must deal. The time has long passed for issuing of warnings.
Unless firm action is taken against those who break the liquor
licensing laws of the land, the people will continue to hurt and
maybe even kill each other.

Why is the Supreme Court judgement being ignored?


Dear Editor,
I am responding to a letter to
the editor from Candy
Gonzalez on behalf of BELPO.
Mrs. Gonzalez reminds us
once again, as she and BELPO
have reminded us repeatedly
over the past year, of the
Supreme Court ruling that DOE
must comply with the Chalillo
Dam ECP.
This legal ruling has been
ignored.
The letters written (even to
our Prime Minister) and
attempts at enforcement by
BELPO and other concerned
parties also have been ignored.
A free and independent media
must provide fair and equal
representation when dispersing


information to the public. That
responsibility for journalistic
balance appears to have been
ignored.
The absolute bottom line in
this issue is the safety, health,
and well-being of those citizens
living downstream from the
Chalillo Dam.
Yes, we are speaking
protection of human lives.
Nothing more and nothing less.
Human lives.
So why is the Supreme Court
judgement being ignored?
What does that tell us about
the value of human life in
Belize?
Gratefully and respectfully
submitted,
Patricia E. Celenza

BACONGO on BEL, FORTIS,

BECOL and Electricity Rates


Submitted by the Belize
Alliance of Conservation NGOs
(BACONGO) Chairperson
and Members
SAN IGNACIO TOWN,
CAYO, Tuesday, July 7,2009:
Fortis wants Belizeans to feel
sorry for them.
Fortis with 2008 revenues in
the billions and net profits
in the hundreds of millions (see
www.fortis.ca), this foreign
owned Canadian corporation
that owns BEL and its sister
company, BECOL (Belize
Electric Company Limited), says
it's not making enough from
Belize and that our electricity
rates should be higher.
If things worked the way they
should, BEL would buy the least
expensive power it could.
However, Fortis (not BEL, but
Fortis) makes ITSELF more
money by having BEL buy
energy from BECOL, which
actually operates Chalillo and
Mollejon Dams- NOT BEL!
While BEL and its rates are
regulated by the Public Utilities
Commission (PUC), BECOL is
not regulated so it can charge
BEL anything it


to pay BECOL for electricity,
INCLUDING the costs
associated with building the
dams, whether they function
properly or not.
On June 25, 2009, BECOL'S
Stephen Usher stated, on LOVE
fm's "Belize Watch" program
that Fortis' investment in
BECOL was three hundred
million dollars ($300,000,00).
No one can doubt that amount
is included in what they charge
for power.
What is also passed on to
Belizeans is the lack of any
emergency evacuation plan or
warning system. The lives of
thousands of people living
downstream of the Chalillo Dam
will be seriously threatened if
the dam breaks or we have a
dam-related flood
And what about earthquakes?
Chalillo is built on an earthquake
fault line that Fortis first tried
to hide and then later claimed
was irrelevant because Belize
is not subject to earthquake
activity.
Unfortunately, it seems that
Belize IS subject to earthquakes

Benque Bids Farewell To Its Police Commandir
BENQUE VIEJO TOWN,
Cayo, Wednesday, July 8,
2009:
It is not often when a police
formation gathers to bid
farewell to a commanding
officer on transfer. It is even
more extraordinary when it is
done in the manner displayed

as Benque bids a bitter sweet
farewell its female Commanding
Officer, Superintendent
Dezerie Phillips.

Bad News!!! & Good News?


A nice, calm and respectable
lady went into the pharmacy,
walked up to the Pharmacist,
looked straight into his eyes, and
said, Sir, I would like to buy
some Cyanide."
The pharmacist asked, "Why
in the world do you need
cyanide?"
The lady replied, "I need it to
poison my husband."
The pharmacist's eyes got big
and he exclaimed, "Lord have
mercy! I can't giveyou cyanide
to kill your husband. That's


against the law! I'll lose my
license! They'll throw both
of us in jail! All kinds of
bad things will happen.
ABSOLUTELY NOT! I
cannot let you have cyanide!"
The lady reached into her
purse and pulled out a picture of
her husband in bed with the
pharmacist's wife.
The pharmacist took one look
at the picture and replied "Well
now, that's different. Why
didn't you tell me that you had
a prescription."

Cleanmaster Cycling Team Does It Again!!!


SAN IGNACIO TOWN,
Thursday, July 9, 2009:
By all indications it looks like
Cayo's Cleanmaster Cycling
Team is on a roll as they captured
the back-to-back top prize in the
Weekend Warriors Road Race.
The Sunday, July 5, race went
like this: It's 8:45 a.m, and
cyclist are lined up at the
Crooked Tree junction on the
Northern Highway, ready to start
the second stage of the Weekend
Warriors Road Race.
The journey spans a total of 28
miles from the junction at
Crooked Tree to the northern
exit of the Orange Walk-Corozal
road, all 48 riders are ready and
eager to get it on!
The race is on! Within minutes
it is clear that the two teams to
watch are team Fabrigas from
Belize City and Cayo's Team
Cleanmaster.
A blistering pace is set by
Team Cleanmaster which strings
out the crowd and cancels out
the strength of the sprinters as
they struggle to keep up with the
pace. Attack after attack by team


Team Cleanmaster's Six Riders with Back-To- Back Top
Finisher, Philip Burns Fourth From Left


Fabrigas is countered by the
team from Cayo.
The pace is kept hard and fast,
there is no rest for the wicked!!!
Only the strong can survive to
be contenders at the finish line.
As the race gets closer to the
tape, the pack is stretched out,
heads are down as riders try to
give their all to the finish line.
Then the big break erupts,
Philip Burns from Team
Cleanmaster's bursts out of the
pack and heads for the finish


line, he's alone, he opens the
gap, the challenge fades, Burns
is the first to touch the tape and
he claims a second consecutive
first place victory.
The team's success in the race
is magnified as Jose Moguel
also from Team Cleanmaster
captures the third prize thereby
making Cleanmaster the only
team with two riders on the
winner's podium.
Second place was taken by
Carlo Marin from Ladyville


Cycling Club; while fourth
place went to Dwayne
Peyrefitte from team Pediatrics.
In fifth position was Tom Tillett

A Shepard
ESPERANZA VILLAGE,
Cayo, Thursday, July 9,2009:
The passing of its founding
Shepard brings to a closure the
first chapter in the life of the
Holiness Temple, Church of God
in Christ, located in Esperanza
Village, Cayo.
After battling medical
complications since 2003,
including no less than 9 strokes,
Bishop Alvan Erling Gentle,
"Pastor G" as he was affection-
ately known, passed away
quietly at La Loma Luz
Hospital in Santa Elena, on
Sunday, July 5, 2009.
Alvan Erling Gentle, 76, was
born in Belize City on January
27, 1933. He was 33 years of age
in 1966 when he relocated from
Belize City to Esperanza Village.
He started the evangelical
ministry shortly after moving to
Cayo where he teamed up with
the late T.G Melholland in the
Ministry of God as he began to
spread the word of God. Nine
years later, in 1970 he took the
bold move and branched off into
starting his church thus giving
birth to what is now Esperanza's
Holiness Temple, Church of God Apart f

A Popular San Ignaeio Tailor Passes


SAN IGNACIO TOWN,
Cayo, Thursday, July 9,2009:
He was affectionately known
as "Ling" the town's most
popular tailor who passed away
earlier this week.

on July 12, 1944. He passed
away quietly on Monday, July 6,
2009, at the Western Regional
Hospital in Belmopan, just 6
days short of his 65 birthday.
In his younger days, Ling
served in the Belize Volunteer
Guards (BVG) and when the
Belize Defense Force (BDF)
replaced the BVG in 1978, Ling
signed up with and was amoung
the very first BDF intake.
When he retired from the BDF
on medical grounds, he took up
the sewing profession under the
guidance of Manuel Matus and
later with "Flash" at High Life
Sewing Shop on Bums Avenue,
San Ignacio, a profession to
which he remained committed
right up to his final days despite
the disability of an amputated leg
in 2000 due to complications
with daibetes.


At one stage in his life Ling
was also the Chief Supervisor in
San Ignacio for Wackenhut
Security Services Corp.
Ling is predeceased by one son
John Zetina. He is survived by
his wife of over 40 years Mrs.
Micaela Cruz-Zetina. Two
sons: Eliud "Fresh "residing in

residing in Arizona, USA. He is
also survived by five daughters:
Yadira "Chena" Miller (Los
Angeles); Magdalena Smith

gan); Vanessa Craney (Los
Angeles) and Aidy Zetina (San
Ignacio). He is also survived by
one brother Domingo Alberto
Zetina and one sister Beatriz

Angeles, California; as well as
a host of nieces, nephews,
cousins, other relatives and
countless friends.

French Ambassador Presents Credentials


BELMOPAN CITY, Wednes-
day, July 8, 2009:
Her Excellency Mrs.
Blandine Kreiss, Ambassador
of France to Belize, today
presented her credentials to the
Governor-General of Belize, Sir
Colville Young, at Belize House
in Belmopan.
On presenting her Letters of
Credence, Her Excellency
Kreiss said, "I am very
honoured to be the 8th French
Ambassador accredited to
Belize... the relationship
between France and Belize has
always been very friendly,
characterized by a great spirit
of cooperation and, lam happy
to say, totally free from any
dispute... French diplomacy has
great expectations for an


ambitious agreement to be
reached on climate change in
Copenhagen next December
and we shall be interested to
have a fruitful exchange with
Belize on such an important
challenge for the future of
mankind".
His Excellency Sir Colville
Young thanked Ambassador
Kreiss for her kind words of
friendship and cooperation. He
assure the Ambassador that her
Letters of Credence will be
forwarded to Her Majesty
the Queen at the earliest
opportunity.
Ambassador Blandine Kreiss
paid courtesy calls on Prime
Minister, Hon. Dean Barrow
and Minister of National
Security, Hon. Calos Perdomo.


Noise Pollution On Burns Avenue, San Igancio


agreed to soundproof the place
but today, several months later,
the place is still not
soundproofed which is direct
contravention of the Liquor
Licensing Act, Chapter 150 of
the Laws of Belize.
Despite this blatant violation of
the soundproofing provision in
the law, the Liquor Licensing
Board and the Police seem
impotent in enforcing the law.
There was a point in time when
an official from the Liquor
Licensing Board committed
to not granting this particular
establishment any extension for
extended weekend hours, this
commitment however, just
simply fell by the wayside as the
club continues to blast from
Thursday right through to
Sunday with total disregard for
the resultant discomfort to those
of us who live in the area and to
the guests in the nearby hotels
who are trying to get a good
night's rest.
Quite frankly we have no
problem if these night clubs
want to go on all night; all we
are asking is for their activities
not to disrupt our peace of mind
as we seek to get the rest need


to meet the challenges of the
next day.
The money we pay in taxes
is used for government
expenditure including the
payment of salaries and wages.
Therefore out taxes pay our
policemen.
When we have a complaint we
therefore expect our policemen
to listen to our complaint and,
based on the merit, they should
take appropriate actions to
address our complaints.
However, there is not happening
as our concerns continue to fall
on deaf ears.
We pay taxes to the Tourist
Board which is used to promote
the tourism product. However, if
guests are staying away from our
hotels because of the noise
pollution then pretty soon we
will not be able to pay our Hotel
taxes.
We are seriously thinking
about withholding the payment
of taxes to the Tourism Board. I
bet however that if we should
ever do so, they will come the
next day and close down our
businesses. This being the case,

Honduran Rivals At Mediated Talks


Manuel Zelaya (L) in consultation with Costa Rican
President Oscar Arias (R)


Ousted Honduran President
Manuel Zelaya and interim
leader Roberto Micheletti have
held mediated talks in Costa
Rica on the political crisis in
Honduras.
The men had separate talks
with Costa Rican President
Oscar Arias, who is mediating,
but did not meet each other.
Micheletti, who insists Zelaya
should give up his claims to the
presidency, has now left Costa
Rica.
Zelaya says he is the
democratically-elected president
and should be restored to power.
Micheletti said he would
return to Honduras "totally
satisfied" and that a working
team would remain in Costa
Rica to continue the talks.
Earlier, he had said he did not
go to Costa Rica to negotiate,
simply to talk.
Zelaya, speaking after his
meeting with Arias, said both
sides had "made the first step.
President Arias heard my
position and that of the union
and political representatives
with me, which is the immedi-
ate restoration of the elected
president," he said.
Zelaya had earlier described
Micheletti as a "criminal".
Micheletti's departure from
Costa Rica will be a big blow to
the mediators. But the fact that
the two men are former allies
could mean there is a chance of
agreement being reached in the
long term.
Before his meetings, President
Arias said that once two sides
started talking, "positions begin
to soften ". But Arias, who won
the 1987 Nobel Peace Prize for


helping bring an end to Central
America's civil wars, said he
recognised the size of the
current task in Honduras. "In
two days there could be a
solution, or it could be that in
two months there is no
solution," he said.
The talks are scheduled to
continue on Friday. Both sides
made statements ahead of the
talks showing little willingness
to negotiate.
The interim government says
it intends to ensure Zelaya
returns to Honduras to face trial
for abusing the constitution. But
as he arrived in San Jose, Zelaya
told reporters he expected the
leaders of the coup to leave
power in 24 hours.
Micheletti said: "We're not
going to negotiate, we're going
to talk. We'll work tirelessly to
seek a solution within the
framework ofthe constitution."
Zelaya was ousted and forced
out of Honduras at gunpoint on
28 June. The political crisis
erupted after Zelaya attempted
to hold a non-binding public
consultation to ask people
whether they supported moves
to change the constitution.
Opponents said that could have
led to the removal of the current
one-term limit on serving as
president and so pave the way
for Zelaya's possible re-election.
In Honduras, thousands of
supporters and opponents of
Zelaya held rival demonstrations
on Thursday.
Supporters of Zelaya cut off
several main highways, while
Micheletti's backers took to the
streets of San Pedro Sula and
other towns.

Located left hand side before turning into the wooden
BRIDGE, Santa Elena Cayo, Belize, Central America


Village as the person riding on
the back turned around and
squeezed of two more shots
towards the restaurant. Jamal
quickly placed the injured
girlfriend in the passenger seat
of the van and sped off to La
Loma Luz Hospital. On the way
to the hospital he passed the
motor scooter with the two
riders on board heading up the
highway whereby he was able to
positively identify them as
Dawson controlling the scooter
and Garcia riding behind. He
dropped off the girlfriend at the
hospital and proceeded to pick
up his step-father. They began
searching around Santa Elena
for the motor cycle riders. About
half an hour later they found the
scooter parked in front of
Happy's Restaurant & Bar in
Red Creek. They entered the
establishment where they
encountered the two suspects.
They immediately approached
Garcia and grabbed him before
he could pull whatever he was
try to get out of his pants. The
article reportedly slid down his
pant and when it was retrieved
it was found to be a gun. They


reportedly began administering
a beating on Garcia until the
police arrive and both suspects
were handed over to the
police.
After releasing the suspects to
the police, Jamal returned to the
hospital where he found out that
the single bullet went through
the muscle of Maritza's left and
that it was lodged in left rib cage.
She was prepped at the Loma
Luz Hospital and transported by
ambulance to the accident and
emergency unit at the Karl
Heusner Memorial Hospital in
Belize City where she was
treated and released two
days later with orders to return
for further evaluation on
Wednesday, July 8.
The suspected were identified
as Gregory Garcia, 19,
Belizean laborer of #30 Zaiden
Street, Santa Elena and Deon
Dawson, 30, Belizean laborer of
#46 Bishop Martin Street also in
Santa Elena. The gun was found
to be a point 38 Special Smith
& Wesson brand revolver with
the serial number removed. The
gun contained 4 live hallow
point rounds and one expended
shell.


Investigators are reportedly
looking into the possibility that
the gun could very well be a
police regulation revolver stolen
from a policeman in Belize City.
Ironically, there are also
indications that the gun
was purchased, about three
months ago, by Garcia from
one of Jamal Smiling's uncle
who lives outside of the Cayo
District.
Gregory Garcia and Dawson
were taken into custody and
transported to the police station
in San Ignacio where, according
to reliable reports reaching us
indicate that Garcia informed
that he was drunk and riding on

the back of the motor scooter
and that he just let offa few shots
and did not mean to hurt anyone.
Garcia and Dawson arrested
and jointly charged for the
following five crimes:
1) Attempt murder
2) Use of deadly means of
harm
3) Possession of unlicensed
firearm
4) Possession of unlicensed
ammunition and
5) Discharging a firearm in
public.
The two accused appeared in the
courtroom of San Ignacio's
temporary Magistrate, Albert
Hoare, on Tuesday, July 7 where
the five charges were read to
them. They were subsequently
remanded to the central prison
in Hattieville until Friday,
August 14, 2009.
