The Nation Expects Nothing Less

From Its Maximum Leader


We commend the Hon. Prime
Minister for taking firm and
decisive action in respect of
recent reports regarding
dishonesty in the handling of
public funds as the ultimate
victims of such dishonesty is
the taxpayers who must suffer
the burden of higher taxation
and curtailed services to bridge
the shortfall.
We can recall that in the
months, weeks and even days
leading up to the Febuary 7,
2008 general elections, the then
Leader of the Opposition
and now Prime Minister of
Belize, the Hon. Dean
Barrow, at every public and
private opportunity, always
maintained that "If taking
action against corruption and
dishonesty in the handling of
the people's money should
results in the downfall of my
government, then so be it".
On February 7, 2008,
Belizeans went to the polls and,
in overwhelming fashion, cast
their sacred ballots to put
an end to corruption and
dishonesty in the handling of
their finances.
We are a nation that emerged
from the worst form of
corruption and dishonest
misuse of public funds.
We emerged from an era
where, on no less than three
occasions, large numbers of
passports went missing with all
cases having died natural
deaths.

We emerged from an era
where numerous persons were
on government's payroll
without not even one day
setting foot inside the
department or ministry that
paid their bi-weekly or
monthly salaries.
We emerged from an
era where the Ministry of
Education was paying univer-

old child.
We emerged from an era
where Muli-Million dollar
corporations were paying mere
pittances in taxes.
We emerged from an era
where an 85 year old party
faithful was given a LARGE
non-guaranteed DFC loan to be

We emerged from an era
where the Social Security
Retirement Funds for hard
working Belizeans and funds
for development financing
purposes at the DFC were used
as slush funds for the well

ultimately resulted in the
bankrupting of the DFC and
the near collapse of the Social
Security Board.

grossly mishandled ultimately
ending up in the pockets of
the chosen few.

sold for ten dollars one day, and
three days later the very same
asset was privately resold for
millions of dollars.
We emerged from an era
where 38 million dollars was
invested in the national port
facility and a few months
later, the facility with all its
millions of dollars in assets,
plus the 38 million dollar
infusion, was sold for a
measly 40 million dollars. And
the list can go on.
That era of widespread
corruption and mishandling of


taxpayers money came to an
end with the election of
Dean Barrow and the United
Democratic Party Government.
Let the word go forth to all
public officers, and especially
to those who were employed
when their party assumed the
reigns of government 17
months ago, that the Prime
Minister is steadfastly main-
taining his commitment to
"jealously safeguard the
people's money". The
nation expects nothing less
from its Maximum Leader.

threw down the machete. He was
reportedly hit in the head with
the gun causing him to fall to the
ground. One of the attackers
then pounced on him and held
him to the ground while the other
gagged him by tying a plastic
bag across his mouth. His shoe
lace was subsequently removed
and was used to tie both hands
behind his back. One of the
attackers then reportedly tore a
strip off the blanket that the
watchman uses to shield himself
from the nighttime dew and used
it to tie his feet together. He was
reportedly relieved of his LG
cellular telephone and $80 in
cash
The watchman informed that
after he was tied up, the two
male persons walked down from
the roof and shortly thereafter he
heard the shattering of glass
after which he heard the sound
of a vehicle leaving the scene.
He reportedly began to rub his
cheek against the cement floor


and in so doing managed to get
the plastic bag off his mouth and
this was when he began
shouting for help. Someone
reportedly heard his cries and
placed a call to the police
directing them to the service
station.
The scenario began to develop
at around sundown on Sunday
when the regular watchman,
Inez Teck, was late for duty, and
an alternative watchman, Raul
Eduardo Gonzalez, was called
in to take up the slack. Whilst
Gonzalez was on duty he was
invited over to a nearby bar and
was treated to several rounds of
beers by two male persons
who reportedly began seeking
his assistance to break into the
gas station.
The bar reportedly closed at
midnight after which the two
male persons left in a small red
car but reportedly returned
shortly afterwards, this time
dressed in dark clothes. A few

Dengue Outbreak In The Cayo District


Readers were unofficially
advised last week about the
suspected outbreak of Dengue
Fever in the Cayo District.
On Tuesday, July 21, the
situation was made official with
the issuing of the following press
release from the Ministry of
Health.
DENGUE OUTBREAK
BELMOPAN, Tuesday, July
21, 2009:
The Ministry of Health
reminds the general public of
the dangers of Dengue Fever and
Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever.
Over the past six weeks, the
Ministry has documented an
increase in the number of
suspected dengue cases
occurring primarily in the Cayo
District.
According to the Ministry
of Health's National Epidemi-
ologist, Mr. Ethan Gough, this
increase exceeds the expected
number of cases for this time of
year and the limited geographic
distribution to date fits the
criteria of a Dengue Outbreak.


To date 184 suspected cases
were reported countrywide for
2009; 114 occurred in the Cayo
District from May 4th to July 14th
accounting for the outbreak.
During that time, 45 cases have
been confirmed by the Central
Medical Laboratory in Belize
City, and a number of specimens
await confirmation.
Additionally, 17 cases were
clinically diagnosed as
Dengue Haemorrhagic Fever,
the majority of which came
from the Cayo District.
As a result of this condition,
the Ministry of Health has
enhanced its efforts to increase
ULV spray cycles especially
in the Cayo District.
The Ministry of Health has also
embarked on a public education
campaign to inform the general
public on ways to prevent the
transmission of Dengue.
Vector Control personnel
from the Ministry of Health
will be redoubling efforts to
conduct premise inspections,
identification of breeding sites


and the elimination of larvae.
WHAT IS DENGUE?
Dengue is an infectious
disease that is transmitted by
the bite of Aedes aegypti and
Aedes albopictus mosquitoes,
which breed in fresh water
stored in natural or artificial
containers in and around human
dwellings, such as old tires,
flowerpots, water storage
containers. This day-biting
species is most active in early
morning and late afternoon.
Activities that should be done
to prevent Dengue include:
a) washing water storage
containers such as drums at
least once a week;
b) changing water in flower
pots every 4 or 5 days;
c) avoid having containers
that can collect water in your
yard (e.g. empty cans, tires), and
d) keep vats, drums, buckets
and all other containers that can
collect water properly covered.
The above are ideal breeding
sites for the mosquito that
transmits Dengue.


With the elimination of
breeding sites in and around
the yard, Dengue can be
avoided.
SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS
Dengue Fever begins with
sudden onset of high fever (104
to 105 degrees Fahrenheit), and
other signs and symptoms in-
clude: Headache Eye Pain or
eyeball pain -Joint pain -
Muscle pain Backache -
Nausea and or lack of
appetite -Vomiting Rash -
Haemorrhagic manifestations
(unusual bleeding from
the gums/heavy menstrual
bleeding/unexplained bruises)
and general weakness
The public is also encouraged
to use mosquito repellent
spray or lotion on the body or
clothing, and to stay in
well-screened areas.
Dengue Fever is a disease that
must be taken very seriously, in
particular if you have had these
symptoms in the past, and every
effort should be made to keep
yourself, your family and your
community safe by maintaining
a clean environment.

Public Relations Chairman,
Rotary Club of San Ignacio
SAN IGNACIO, Monday, July
20, 2009
Rotary donated a 2009 Toyota
Hiace Van, which has been
specially modified with a unique
mechanism that safely lowers
and raises passengers in their
wheelchairs into and out of the
vehicle.
The van was presented to the
Manager of the Center, Luis
Pulido, on Thursday, July 9,
2009.
In receiving the keys, Manager
Pulido expressed gratitude to
Rotary for the wonderful
donation. He informed that the
vehicle will make outings and
ambulance trips to the hospital
so much easier and comfortable
for the senior citizens residing
at the center.
The $66,000 to purchase the
van was raised by Rotary's three
clubs and it took over a year.
The project started when a
visiting Rotarian, Ted
Caruthers, noticed that there
was a need for a better form of
transportation for the Octavia
Waight Center to transport
residents to and from the
hospital. Ted went back to his
Rotary Club of Valdese, North
Carolina, USA and convinced
members to start fundraising.
Brent Olson from the
Rotary Club of Bainbridge,
Washington, USA also became
involved in the project, and his
club agreed to help raise the
necessary funds.
On the local scene, San
Ignacio Rotarians Chris Aird
and Andre Lopez were actively
involved in bringing this
important Rotary international
project to fruition and they were
assisted by fellow Rotarians who
worked hard to raise money in
San Ignacio through various
fundraising activities.
This is yet another example of
the humanitarian efforts by
Rotarians in other countries to
assist in making life better for
Belizeans.

Pastor Jim, Pastor Joe and

how they shared the weekly

Pastor Jim said, "I draw a

a few paces back and I throw

What landed in the circle I

Weekend Cycling News *S


BY- Phillip Burns
SAN IGNACIO TOWN,
Cayo,Friday, 24, July, 2009:
The third stage of the
Weekend Warriors race series was
held on Sunday, July 19, 2009.
A criterium race held at the
Belmopan City ring road with
support from the Belmopan City
Council and the Police Department
who did a great job at traffic
control.
Over 30 riders line up in front of
the Comprehensive Primary School
to see who can complete the 10 laps
or 27 miles in the shortest time.
Phillip Burns from team
CleanMaster, winner of the
previous two races, is a marked
man! All eyes are on him and teams
allocate a couple of riders to ensure
he is kept in check.
It's 8:45 a.m and the race is off!
Once again the battle for control of
the race is between team Fabrigas
and Team Cleanmaster.
It's a blistering pace! It's a nerve
racking race as no one is allowed
to move away and there is no real
slowing down at the curves.
One of the Fabrigas riders,
Giovanni Alamina suffers an
unfortunate accident on one of the
curves and ends up in a ditch with
a concussion and a broken collar


bone. We extend best wishes for his
speedy recovery.
It's lap 4 and Team Cleanmaster's
rider Dr Ramon Figueroa attacks
at the front and moves away from
the peloton on his own. Alone for
only two laps as the peloton, driven
hard by Team Fabrigas, catches up
with the lone rider. But the pace
does not slow down and again an
attack this time by Team Pediatrics
which is quickly countered by
Team Clean Master and a small
breakaway is established. This
again is soon reeled in by the hard
driving peloton.
It's lap 7 and again a small
breakaway group of four men take
a 300 yard lead. This is it! Ryan
Garbutt and Jose Moguel from
team Clean Master, and a rider
from team Pediatrics. This lead is
held on for about one lap before
once again a hard driven peloton
catches up with the group.
It's the last lap now and you can
feel the peloton gearing up for the
final sprint as no one has been
able to establish a permanent
breakaway! Team Clean Master
moves to the front to take control.
One man takes off and nobody
follows! It's Geoffrey Waight
from team Clean Master. This is it
if he can only hold for the last lap,


the last two miles of the race! It was
not to be as he is caught up about
half mile before the finish. Still,
Team Clean Master has men at the
front lining up for the sprint. The
last 500 meters and the sprint takes
off led by Phillip Burns, followed
closely by Andrew Ordonez from
Team Fabrigas and Jose Moguel
from Team Clean Masters.....and
out of nowhere comes the veteran
Roque Matus from M & M's team
attacking from the left; and Marion
Swift from Team Fabrigas attacks
on the right. It's a long sprint but
Roque holds everyone off to win
this third stage. Congratulations to
the winners and all participating


riders for a good race.
The end result:
First place: Roque Matus from
Team Sol/M&M Engineering.
Second Place: Marion Swift
from Team Pediatric Center. Third
Place: Phillip Burns from
Team Clean Master. Fourth Place:
Jose Moguel from Team Clean
Master and in Fifth Place:
Andrew Ordonez from Team
Fabrigas.

What You Should Know About Heart Attack


"good cholesterol"), diabetes,
high blood pressure, obesity,
chronic kidney disease, heart
failure, excessive alcohol
consumption, the abuse of
certain drugs (such as cocaine
and methamphetamine), and
chronic high stress levels.
Immediate treatment for
suspected acute myocardial
infarction includes oxygen,
aspirin, and sublingual glyceryl
trinitrate (colloquially referred
to as nitroglycerin and
abbreviated as NTG or GTN).
Pain relief is also often given,
classically morphine sulfate.
A 2009 review however about
the use of high flow oxygen for
treating myocardial infarction
found its administration
increased mortality and infarct
size, calling into question the
recommendation for its routine
use.
The patient will receive a
number of diagnostic tests, such
as an electrocardiogram (ECG
EKGV a chest X-rav and blood


tests to detect elevations in
cardiac markers (blood tests to
detect heart muscle damage).
The most often used markers are
the creatine kinase-MB (CK-
MB) fraction and the troponin I
(Tnl) or troponin T (TnT) lev-
els. On the basis of the ECG, a
distinction is made between ST
elevation MI (STEMI) or non-
ST elevation MI (NSTEMI).
Most cases of STEMI are treated
with thrombolysis or if possible
with percutaneous coronary in-
tervention (PCI, angioplasty and
stent insertion), provided the
hospital has facilities for coro-
nary angiography. NSTEMI is
managed with medication, al-
though PCI is often performed
during hospital admission. In
patients who have multiple
blockages and who are relatively
stable, or in a few extraordinary
emergency cases, bypass surgery
of the blocked coronary artery is
an option.
The phrase "heart attack" is
sometimes used incorrectly to
describe sudden cardiac death


which may or may not be the
result of acute myocardial
infarction.
Aheart attack is different from,
but can be the cause of cardiac
arrest, which is the stopping of
the heartbeat, and cardiac
arrhythmia, an abnormal
heartbeat. It is also distinct from
heart failure, in which the
pumping action of the heart is
impaired; severe myocardial
infarction may lead to heart fail-
ure, but not necessarily.
Reducing The Risk
Of A Heart Attack
You can reduce your risk of
having a heart attack-even if
you already have coronary heart
disease (CHD) or have had a
previous heart attack.
The key is to take steps to
prevent or control your heart
disease risk factors.
Six Key Steps To
Reduce Heart Attack
Risk
Taking these stens will reduce


your risk of having a heart

Surviving A Heart
Attack
How do you survive a heart
attack? Fast action is your best
weapon against a heart attack.
Why? Because clot-busting
drugs and other artery-opening
treatments can stop a heart attack
in its tracks. They can prevent
or limit damage to the heart-
but they need to be given
immediately after symptoms be-
gin. The sooner they are started,
the more good they will do-and
the greater the chances are for
survival and a full recovery. To
be most effective, they need to
be given ideally within 1 hour
of the start of heart attack

By: Wellington C. Ramos
Beginning next week
throughout our country of
Belize, our government is going
to commence consultations with
our people on two important
constitutional amendments to
Article-7 of our constitution.
One of these proposed
amendments is to give Belizean
citizens who possess Dual
Citizenships the right to be
eligible to run for the National
Assembly while retaining their
Dual Citizenships. The other
amendment is to discontinue
having the Privy Council in
London England as our final
court for appeals and to transfer
this authority to the Caribbean
Court of Justice (CCJ) in the


Caribbean countries.
Many Belizeans living abroad
including myself, are strongly in
support of these two
amendments because one will
reaffirm the constitutional rights
of Belizeans who possess Dual
Citizenships and the other will
have a major impact on the
reduction of murders in Belize
by resuming Capital Punishment
which the Privy Council Court
in London seems to be ruling
against persistently over the
years.
Almost all the Belizeans who
left Belize and came to the
United States did so for one of
the following reasons; to join
their family, to avoid political
persecution, to advance their


education or to improve their
economic situation. If it was not
for one of these factors, most
Belizeans living in the United
States will still be living in
Belize. Now that they live in
the United States, their
contributions to the survival and
growth of Belize is extremely
significant economically,
socially, politically and in many
other ways.
In a recent study conducted by
the United States Government,
it was reported that most
developing countries in the
Caribbean including Belize,
would endure serious economic
hardships if it was not for the
financial contributions made
weekly by the Belizeans living


Belizean Americans Urgent Appeal To The Hearts Minds

And Souls Of Their Fellow Belizeans Living At Home


in the United States.
The Constitution of Belize has
a Dual Citizenship Clause that
gives Belizeans who possess
Dual Citizenships the right to
vote. However, Belizeans who
possess Dual Citizenships have
not been given that right by
neither of their governments
over the years in allowing them
to vote through Proxy Voting.
The denial of this right is a
violation of their constitutional
right. While this right exist, it is
contradictory to say that they can
vote but cannot run for office.
In a democracy if a person can
vote then the person should also
be qualified to run for office as
a citizen of that country if he or
she meets the requirements set
forth in the Elections and
Boundaries Law or in the
People's Representation
Ordinance. Great nations are
built by citizens who have been
exposed to other industrialized
and technological countries
because they will bring their
experiences and expertise back
home to build their own
country. China is now one of the
richest countries in the world
after it came out of the Dark
Ages. When Peter The Great
took Russia out of the Dark Ages
Russia became a great power
also. He sent Russian citizens
abroad to see what other
European countries were doing
to become industrialized.
There are some Belizeans
who show resentment towards
their fellow Belizeans when they
go home to visit them. Most of
this resentment is due to jealousy
and ignorance because some did
not get the opportunity to come
and live in the United States or
foster that false belief that
Belizeans who live in the United
States do not care about their
country and people. For the few
who think that way, I would like
to make it clear that I have lived
in Los Angeles, Chicago and
New York City throughout all
my thirty-one years living in the
United States. These are three of
the biggest cities that have the
largest concentration of
Belizeans.
Most Belizeans that I have met
are longing to go back home,
love their native country and
would do anything for their
beloved country including to
fight and die for it. When
anything occur in Belize such as;
hurricanes, earthquakes, other

amount of murders throughout
the whole country of Belize was
far less than today.
There are some Belizeans
who would argue, that the
re-institution of Capital
Punishment will not lead to the
reduction of murders in our
country. I would counter that
argument by saying to them, then
let us do it and then examine
the impact it is having on the


reduction of murders and if it is
not then we can abandon it
forever.
The issue is; How long are we
as a people going to stand idly
by while our family members
continue to see their love ones
being killed innocently and
senselessly in our country by
these heartless murderers? These
people do not value a person's
life and that is the reason
why they are taking it for no
justifiable reason. Some of us
have been spending too much
time being concerned about the
rights of the accused. It is now
time for us to be concerned about

STAR Policemen Of The Week


The STAR policemen of the
week has got to be Corporal
186 Samuel Bonilla and
PC 228 Porfilio Co.
Why are we awarding them
this title, you might ask ?
For a very long time we have
been noticing that many are the
policemen who appear impotent
in enforcing the law as it pertains
to restaurants and bar owners
who, with impunity, are in
constant violation of the liquor
licensing law as it pertains to
closing time.
In fact some policemen even
go to the extent of patronizing
these establishments as they


(L-R) PC #228 Porfilio Co. Cpl # 186 Samuel Bonilla


remain open way beyond the
closing time.
In the routine course of our
business this Tuesday morning


we came upon one such violator
of the law sitting inside the
magistrate court, and when we
inquired, we were told that he
was summoned by Corporal
Bobilla and PC Co for opening


beyond the legally stipulated
midnight hour. The violator pled
guilty to the charge and was
fined $100.
We visited the Officer
Commanding the formation to
congratulate the police for
taking affirmative action to
address this situation. The
Commanding Officer informed
that PC Co has issued summons
at least 5 or 6 such violators of
the law.
It is our sincere desire that other
policemen would take example
from PC Co and the relief
Commanding NCO, Corporal
186 Samuel Bonilla as they
uncompromisingly enforce the
law especially in this area that is
known to be contributing to
crimes of violence in the
community.
