No Major Recent Criminal Activity In The Community
It is encouraging to note that, apart from two reported
burglaries this week, and a few other minor incidents, criminal
activities in the community somehow appears to have taken
a back seat as we approach the Yuletide Season of caring and
sharing.
We have reached the point over the last two weeks, where the
assigned magistrate has been out of the courtroom for several
days as she shuffles between San Ignacio and Benque Viejo
Town holding over for the magistrate in that western-most
municipality. Despite the Magistrate's absence from San Ignacio
on other duties, there has hardly been any overcrowding, as in
times gone by, at the San Ignacio Police holding cells.
Unlike the situation in Belize City, it has been several months
since a murder had occurred in this community. Police are
attributing this slow down in major criminal activity to two
possible factors: 1) Most of the trouble makers are currently
incarcerated, either on conviction or on remand at the Hattieville
Central Prison and 2) Word might have been spreading of the
no-nonsense prosecuting skills, and the high rate of convictions,
attained to date by the newest Crown Counsel in the Office of
the Director of Public Prosecutions, in the person of British

Social work is nothing new to
Mr. Rosales as, prior to retiring
in Belize a few years ago he
served in senior positions in
several charitable Belizean
American Organizations in New
York.
Originally from the Toledo
District, Mr. Rosales, whilst
living in New York, oversaw the
channeling of many donations to
several schools and to the
hospital in Punta Gorda
Town.
Manager Pulido informed that
the funds will go a long way in
addressing the needs, and in
making more comfortable of the
residents of the Center.

Public Notice


PUBLIC UTILITIES Public Utilities Commission (PlC) PUBLIC UTILITIES

The Public Utilities Commission (PUC) hereby serves notice that on December 2, 2009, an objection to its Initial Decision in the Full
Tariff Review Proceeding (FTRP) for Belize Water Services Limited (BWSL) was received from BWSL, in accordance with the Water
and Sewerage (Tariffs) Byelaws (Statutory Instrument 67 of 2002) as amended by Statutory Instrument 102 of 2004 and Statutory
Instrument 89 of 2008.

Grounds for objection as cited by BWSL:

1. The proposed Rate Setting Methodology (RSM) does not seem appropriate for a water utility which has constraints on cash generation
and therefore on obtaining debt financing. BWS has no knowledge of what effect such a methodology has had on other cash-short water
utilities.

2. The proposed Regulated Asset Value (RAV) embodied in the RSM reduces overall assets by subtracting contributions to assets and
missed the key fact that the reason most of these contributions were required is because BWS was not able to fund them due to lack of
cash. Furthermore, the RAV uses historical cost rather than market value or replacement cost on assets. The proposed RAV therefore
significantly understates the cost of providing the services to customers.

3. By extension, the PUC's stated intention to evaluate new projects independently implies that systems with contributed capital would be
charged lower rates than similar systems financed by BWS. BWS believes that this approach would create resistance to BWS-financed
expansion projects and is therefore contra-productive to the expansion of this essential service and to the overall development of the
nation.

4. The PUC is proposing regulatory changes to remove the option for (annual) Notified Items application and impose a requirement for
mandatory annual reviews. The former was recommended by the Independent Expert at the last FTRP in 2004 as a means to avoid the
need for Annual Reviews to adjust for changes outside of BWS's control. The latter seems to assume that Business Plan as approved by
the PUC in the Full Tariff Review would require regular adjustments; such mandatory reviews, especially if not required, would put an
unnecessary cost and overhead on both BWS and the PUC.

5. The proposed Operating Expenses (OPEX) have not been clarified and exclude Finance Charges which would have to be covered by
the proposed Return on RAV in the RSM. The margin between the Return on RAV and the Finance Charges appears too small.

6. The Initial Decision ignores BWS' proposal to restructure the tariffs and reduce the monthly bills for some 7,000 or so
lower-consumption residential customers who use 750 gallons or less.

7. The Initial Decision and its related documents indicated details of Capital Expenditure and a summary of certain expense items but
were incomplete in terms of a full Business Plan, particularly they did not provide projected Balance Sheets, Income Statements and Cash
Flow Statements.

8. The Initial Decision ignores the company's regulatory mandate to provide a fair return to its 1,300 or so shareholders.

9. The critical importance of cash flow appears to have been overlooked as the Initial Decision and proposed RSM seem to assume that
BWS will be able to generate or obtain adequate cash and/or loan funding to invest and meet its commitments; however, this misses the
key point that the company requires adequate cash flows from operations in the first place, before it can be in such a position.

10. The Initial Decision also appears to ignore a number of requirements, issues, influences, and economic assumptions included in
BWS' Business Plan submission and the identified requirements to ensure "that the company can meet the investment needs of
population growth, handle emergency disaster situations, provide fair return to shareholders who have invested hard earned funds, and
ensure the overall viability of BWS".

11. Many of the issues identified above combine to create an uncertain environment for BWS which, especially given the need to obtain
financing for major projects, will have a negative effect when reviewed by lending institutions.

Appointment of an Independent Expert

As a result of BWSL's objection, the PUC will appoint an Independent Expert to review the Schedules and Tariffs within 15 days of the
objection. The Independent Expert, who is to be agreed by the Licensee, will be appointed by December 18, 2009. The Expert will give
due consideration to the interim decision of the PUC and the objections, comments and information submitted by the Licensee and
interested parties in carrying out his review, and should submit his report to the PUC and BWSL by January 18, 2010. Where the PUC
and the licensee do not agree on the selection of the Independent Expert, an Expert will be appointed by the International Chamber of
Commerce on application of the PUC.

The Licensee and any Interested Party representing customers of the Licensee that together consumed at least 10% of the water sold by the
Licensee during the preceding year may submit written comments on the Independent Expert's report, and where such comments
challenge the conclusions of the report, the PUC shall afford the Licensee and such Interested Parties an opportunity to be heard.

The PUC will deliver a Final Decision no later than 50 days after the receipt of the Independent Expert's Report. The Final Decision
therefore, will be delivered on March 10, 2010
Issued by the PUC on Dec. 8, 2009

A San Ignacio Resident writes on ST REE I
CONDITIONS, PARKING, TAXI DRIVERS and
HEAVY DUTY VEHICLE


Dear Editor,
For some time now I have been
contemplating whether to write
to your newspaper about certain
concerns/issues that I have had
but have always put it off until
Tuesday 8th December while
walking home, I had another
more compelling reason to do so.
If you kindly allow me, I would
like to detail below a few
concerns that I have as a citizen
of the town of San Ignacio.
STREET CONDITIONS
On Tuesday of this week, I
noticed that the section of road
in front of Sacred Heart College
on Joseph Andrews Drive was
being scrapped and graded as it
would apparently be re-surfaced.
Sure that idea is welcomed but I
wondered what the engineers
and planners of the town or
ministry are thinking and doing.
That segment of Joseph
Andrews Drive had nothing
wrong with it but was one of the
best parts of the drive. So I asked
myself why would it be scrapped
and worked on if nothing is
wrong with it? They should
better spend the resources on
fixing the entire segment in front
of Lea's Furniture and Falcon
Field that has more holes than
the moon and have been
spewing dust for months now.
There are many other streets
that need fixing and I do not see
the town council or the ministry
of works doing anything about
it.
I was extremely happy to see

question why the town council
or the ministry of works carry
out work on roads/streets/
bridges during peak hours. In
other countries, these types of
maintenance and rehabilitation
work is done during the night
when it will least affect the
residents.
PARKING
The second concern I have is
in regards to parking in the
downtown area.
The majority of parking spaces
in town have been given to
taxi associations leaving the
remainder of the motoring
public with little space to park
when they go do errands in town.
Do we need all those taxis
taking up the majority of space
or could they be managed in a
more efficient way to maximize
the use of the small downtown
area? That is what the town
council and the municipal
traffic department should be
doing. By the way, do we really
know the financial effects of this
move?
TAXI DRIVERS
The third concern is in regards
to the utter and complete
disregard that the taxi drivers
have in general for traffic
regulations.
They park where they want,
when they want and drive the
way they want.
A perfect example is what
happens at the Bullet Tree and
Joseph Andrews Drive junction.
A taxi driver was coming from
downtown on Bullet Tree road
and did not stop at all at the
junction and just sped and turned
left onto Joseph Andrews Drive
going up the hill towards
Benque.
If the other driver coming from
the college going up Joseph
Andrews Drive did not suddenly
stop in the middle of the
intersection (even though that
driver had the right of way)
they would have had a serious
collision! It did not bother one
bit to the taxi driver, he just sped
off and continued on his way.
The municipal traffic
department should put in place
a mandatory special driver's ed
class for all those who wish to
become taxi drivers. The


department must ensure that
they pass both a theory and a
practical exam if not they be
denied a license and this license
should be renewable yearly
based on them passing the
practical exam.
Taxi drivers, I believe, have to
shape up and drive with all due
care and attention because the
other residents are tired of
having to drive for themselves as
well as for the taxi drivers. That
should not be allowed to
continue.
HEAVY DUTY VEHICLE
I live on Joseph Andrews
Drive in San Ignacio and, like so
many of the residents who live
in the area, I am sick and tired
of the incessant noise pollution
that heavy duty trucks cause as
they drive down towards the
cemetery.
My understanding is that they
do not need to make all that noise
but that they choose to do so.
The traffic department should
do something about it and ensure
that this does not continue.

There are many ways that
some of these problems can be
corrected like:
a) perhaps the town council
should consider putting up some
closed circuit cameras at
strategic locations around the
twin towns,
b) due consideration should be
given to the installation of
parking meters,
c) remapping the center of
town to maximize parking space,
d) hiring and professionally
train more traffic wardens and
e) be more strict with
violations and the issuance of
traffic tickets especially to those
taxi drivers that blatantly and
consistently violate the traffic
regulations.
In the final analysis we all
must learn to live together in a
symbiotic relationship as this is
our town.

Dr. Louis Zabaneh And New Board Of

Trustees Takes Over Galen Univeristy


GALEN UNIVERSITY,
Central Farm, Cayo,
Monday, December 7,
2009:
Galen University is
pleased to announce that
in November 2009 the
original founders and
owners of Galen passed


the torch to Dr. Louis Zabaneh.
Dr. Zabaneh, who holds a
Ph.D. in Applied Economics
from Clemson University in the
US, brings to Galen a solid
background in higher education
and extensive business experi-
ence in Belize and the region.
As the former Chair of the
University of Belize's Board of
Trustees, he is familiar with
the challenges and opportunities
facing higher education in
Belize and abroad.
Currently about 75% of Galen
University's students are
studying an area of business.
Dr. Zabaneh's background in
business will ensure those
programs grow and become
more relevant by assisting


Dr. Louis Zabaneh


students in
linking the
theoretical
material in
their text-
books to the
"real life"
experience of
business in


Belize.
One of Dr. Zabaneh's goals for
Galen University is to expand
the opportunities for practical
experience in the workplace
through practicum placements
and internships that will at
the same time be of value to
business and the general commu-
nity.
Galen University was founded
in September 2003 by a team of
visionary people including Dr.
Nancy Adamson (Provost), Mr.
Marion Cayetano, and
Cypriots, Dr. Andreas
Charalambous, Ms. Anna
Lazari, Mr. Kostas Karanikis
and Intercollege (now the

BELIZE WATER SER VICES LTD.



BjU5 PRESS RELEASE B S

Belize City, Belize. December 02, 2009:
BWS objects to PUC Initial Decision on BWS FTRP Application

The Public Utilities Commission issued its Initial Decision (2009 Full Tariff Review Proceeding)
for Belize Water Services Limited (BWS) on November 17, 2009. BWS had submitted its Full
Five-Year Business Plan (FFBP) report on October 1, 2009, for the period April 1, 2010 through to
March 31, 2015 to the PUC for their review.

BWS has submitted a formal objection to the PUC regarding the Initial Decision.
There are a number of reasons for this objection, including:
The Initial Decision ignores BWS' proposal to reduce the monthly bills for some 7,000 or so
lower-consumption residential customers who use 750 gallons or less. The BWS proposed tariffs
were specifically designed to minimise the impact on lower income and lower consumption
residential customers. For the 5,000 households (11% of the customer base) who use 500 gallons
or less of water monthly, their bill would actually REDUCE by an average of 20%. Also,
recognizing the cries from San Pedro where the tariffs are higher than on the mainland, the percentage
increase in San Pedro was kept much lower.
The Initial Decision ignores the company's regulatory mandate to provide a fair return to the over
1,300 shareholders who invested their hard-earned funds.
The proposed Rate Setting Methodology (RSM) does not seem appropriate for a water utility
which has constraints on cash generation and therefore on obtaining debt financing. The effect of
such a methodology on a cash-short water utility can be disastrous.
The proposed Regulated Asset Value (RAV) embodied in the RSM reduces the overall asset value
by subtracting contributions to assets and misses the key fact that these contributions were necessary
as BWS was unable to fund them due to lack of cash. Furthermore, the RAV uses historical cost rather
than market value or replacement cost on assets. The proposed RAV therefore significantly
understates the cost of providing the services to customers.
The proposed regulatory changes, which would impose mandatory annual reviews, will add
additional costs and overhead to both BWS and the PUC.
The issues identified above, combined with various other elements of the Initial Decision, will
create an environment of uncertainty for BWS, which, especially with the need to obtain financing
for major projects, will have a negative effect when reviewed by lending institutions.

Overall, the Initial Decision seems to ignore a number of requirements, issues, influences, and
economic assumptions included in BWS' Business Plan submission as well as the company's
requirement to ensure "that the company can meet the investment needs of population growth,
handle emergency/disaster situations, provide fair return to shareholders and ensure the overall
viability of BWS".

BWS feels that this Initial Decision can be improved for the benefit of all stakeholders.

SAGITTARIUS:
November 22 to December 21
People who come to you seeking refuge may turn tables
on you, so do not dish out any radical advice, especially
on matters that could be controversial. Also make

AQUARIUS: January 21 to February 19
Make the best of this phase as the energy that you have
is phenomenal. You have no ambiguity in your mind about
what you want to achieve. Keep away from matters that
could draw you into legal wrangles. Do not push people
into taking final decisions if they are uncertain about it.
Lucky Numbers: 10, 49, 87.

PISCES: February 20 to March 21
Other will try to help you with the projects you have
started. There could be plans made for travel to some

an angry manner. Keep your communication clear.

STAR HUMOR S
Same Activity Different Outcome


Johnny lost a contact lens
while riding his bicycle on the
driveway.
After a fruitless search, he
rushed inside and told his mother
that the lens was nowhere to be
found.
Undaunted, the mother went
outside and in a few minutes, she


returned with the lens in her
hand.
"How did you manage to find
it, Mom?" Johnny asked.
"We were not looking for the
same thing," she replied. "You
were looking for a small piece
of plastic. I was looking for
$250."


Some Of The Benefits Of Being Over 50


1. Your joints are more
accurate meteorologists than
the national weather service.
2. People call at 9:00 pm and
ask, "Did I wake you?"
3. You have a party and the
neighbors don't even realize
it.
4. You quit trying to hold in
your stomach, no matter who
walks into the room.
5. You are no longer required
to carry the heavy shopping bag
or lift the heavy stuff.
6. Your fuel bill is low because
the car is parked more often
than it is used.
7. It's Sunday and no one
asks you where you were on

Arson Suspected As The Cause

Of Bishop Martin School lire


SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo
District, Thursday, December
10, 2009:
Crime investigators are
seriously suspecting arson as the
cause of the fire that totally
gutted an entire 80 X 20 ft
classroom building at Bishop
Martin Primary School in San
Ignacio Town, during the early
morning hours on Friday,
December 4, 2009.
At around 2:40 a.m., a mobile
patrol visiting the police check
point on the Bullet Tree Road,
located just across from the
school, saw smoke coming from
the school compound. They
rushed over to investigate and
found one of the buildings
engulfed in flames while the
watchman was reportedly found
fast asleep on duty. They
immediately contacted the fire
service and within minutes a
team of fire fighters were on the
scene. It was not until around
5:00 a.m., that the ashes were
totally extinguished.
The building, housing the


school's Infant 11 and Standard
IV classrooms and the library,
with all its contents, was
completely destroyed in the
blaze.
Police reports that the Belizean
watchman, Jose Baki, 44,
residing in the nearby Santiago
Juan Layout was detained,
questioned and later released.
While classes for the entire
school was suspended for the
day on Friday, December 4,
activities resumed on Monday,
December 7.

Jeo Woutld Not S3e a Zionibt


BY- George & Candy Gonzalez
SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo,
Monday, December 7, 2009:
Knowing what we do about
Israel, we find it insulting to see
the Israeli flag flying above the
Belize flag on the top of this
house in San Ignacio Town,
Cayo.
This is offensive to Belize and
Belizeans; in Israel it is illegal
for Palestinians to fly their flag.
We seriously doubt that anyone
could fly any flag above the
Israeli flag in Israel.
It seems an appropriate time to
write this article as we approach
the celebration of the birth of
Jesus, for those who are
Christians.
There are Evangelicals being
led by a right wing racist church
called Evangelical Christians
United for Israel (CUFI) led by
Pastor John Hagee from Texas.
Of course, he has every right to
his opinion and it is understand-
able that he does so probably for
personal reasons.
Recall, in the Bible, that Jesus
went to the temple overturning
the tables of the moneylenders
and denouncing them; they were
the ones who went to the
Romans to have Caesar deal
with him. Jesus was Jewish;
the moneylenders would be
compared to today's Zionists.
It seems contradictory for any
Christian to promote Zionism.
They have taken Palestinian
(Muslim and Christian) land.
They forced the closing of one
of the most holy Christian places
of worship it was the first time
in 500 years its doors were
closed.
The Hassidics, who are the
experts of the "Torah",
denounced Israel for calling
itself the Promised Land. They
believe that only the Messiah
can lead them to the Promised
Land, and the Zionists are not
messiahs but are false prophets.
When we speak of "Zionism",
we do not mean Judaism. A
major reason for our
anti-Zionism is that the
principal element of Zionism is
racism.
Zionists believe that Jews
are superior to all others, in
particular to the Palestinians
who lived and live on the land
the Zionists stole from them in
1948.
Between 1967 and 1973, Israel


doubled its territory by its
illegal occupation of the West
Bank, Gaza and parts of
"neighboring" countries the


lands of others.
Zionism seeks to dominate all
of Palestine and the Middle East,
aided by billions of dollars of

"aid" from the United States.
This suits the United States who
seeks to dominate and control
as much as they can. Both
countries want piece a piece
of what everyone else has.
Zionists reject the idea of a
secular (non-religious) state
based on equality for all citizens.
They maintain that Jews have
special rights.
Israeli law grants automatic
citizenship to any Jew, regard-
less of where they were born, as
long as they produce proof that
their mother was a Jew.
Christians and Muslims born
in Palestine are not considered

The Team From Toledo Is This Year's

Mega Belikin 9 Ball Billiards Champ


Ten mighty teams gathered at the
Multipurpose Complex in Orange
Walk Town. The came from as far
as Toledo in the South, Cayo in
West and Corozal in the North.
They all came to Orange Walk
Town for a two day Billiards
Tournament to prove which team
is the best in the land.
Each came with one mission in
mind and that was to win the
Championship, capture the first
place trophies and take home the
grand prize of $4,000 in cash.
If they were unable to capture the
BIG one they would settle for the
second title of sub-champion, the
second place trophies and the
$2,000.00 cash prize. Failing that,
at least win the third place trophies
with $1,000 cash prize.
On the first day Saturday, the
eliminations started briskly, but
the pace slowed down as both
teams played with more caution.
The elimination games went past
midnight, and when the games
were stopped, it was Cayo
carrying the day with no losses.
On the second day, Sunday,
the last remaining three games of
the elimination games were
completed and the semi-finalist


The Mega Belikin Champions Hails From Toledo (above)


matches started. Two of Orange
Walk's team, Tijuana's and KD's
had been bombed out early and
did not make the semi-finals. This
was most unfortunate for Orange
Walk. Orange Walk's only hopes
was Hi5, but that remaining hope
died when Cayo slammed Orange
Walk's Hi5 in a very heatedly con-
tested game.
The four teams that made it to
the finals were: Cayo, Advance
from Belize City, Corozal and


Toledo. Each had only brought a
team and, therefore, they were
very strong having selected the
best players of their district.
Corozal trounced Cayo, and
Toledo did the same to Advance
Belize. So it was a Corozal and
Toledo match for first and second
place, and Cayo and Advance for
third and fourth place. Toledo
smashed Corozal taking the


coveted title of Champions and
left Corozal as Sub Champions
while Advance blasted Cayo for
third place. All in all, the games
were all spectaculars and thrillers.
The Mega Belikin 9-Ball
Tournament was a tremendous
success. The teams conducted
themselves in a spirit of good
sportsmanship and were happy
that they had been a part of this
great and historic event in the
sports of Billiards.
A mighty thanks goes to the out-
standing referees: Mr. Willard
Levy, Mr. Damasio, Mr. Rogelio
Cocom, and Mr. Nelson
Demorce. They were all
excellent referees.
To the sponsors: Belikin Beer,
La Popular Bakery, Rapidito
Loans and to the Deputy Prime
Minister Hon. Gaspar Vega a
million thanks for contributing
and assisting in raising the bar in
the sports of Billiards.
To Hi5 goes a massive congratu-
lation for having organized such
a huge, splendid and historic event
in the sports of Billiards.
To all the teams that came from
far and near and to all the
spectators who came out to
support, a most mighty "thank
you!"

Africa, testing nuclear weapons.
This dialog could go on but we
believe we have said enough to
give you a basic understanding.
Our anti-Zionist position goes
back decades. In June 1967,
Candy was in Cairo, Egypt
during the "Six Day War" on
her way to a teaching position
in Tanzania. She experienced,
first hand what happened. The
western press said the Egyptians
started the war when, in fact, it
was Israel, in an early morning
surprise bombing attack. The
western press said civilian
populations were not targeted
but Candy remembers a large
man running towards her and
pushing her against a wall just
as an Israeli plane flew over
spraying bullets at civilians in
the downtown area. Had it not
been for the stranger's quick
thinking, she might have been
killed that day. The Israelis went
so far as to attack a US flag ship,
the USS Liberty, killing 34
sailors and wounding 131.
In the late 1970s, when Jimmy
Carter refused military aid to
Guatemala for human rights
violations, the Israelis stepped
in. They provided arms,


including the Israeli Galil
sub-machine gun, to Guatemala
and helped train the military and
those that became known as the
"death squads" as well as
support for the Salvadoran right
wing party and it's "death
squads" in the war against the
people.
In 1980, when Israel declared
Jerusalem as its capital, it was
no surprise that Guatemala and
El Salvador were among the first
to support them.
Jamaican-British filmmaker
Ishmahil Blagrove was on the
Spirit of Humanity, along with
Cynthia McKinney (a former
U.S. Congresswoman from
Georgia). They were taking
humanitarian aid to Gaza. On
June 29, they along with 19
others were abducted by the
Israeli Navy vessel, in
international waters and held in
Israel's Ramle Prison for a week.
Blagrove told Sky News via a
cell phone provided by British
consular services, "Africans,
like Palestinians, are being
persecuted by the Israeli
government and the world
needs to know." He says the
Israeli prison population is 90
percent Black.

new Mopan Clinic currently
under construction in Benque
Viejo Town.
Minister Contreras ended
by informing the people that
"while the economy is officially
in recession, the government
of Prime Minister Dean Barrow
continues to turn possibilities
into reality despite the huge
financial debt inherited from
the reckless ways of the
previous mal-administration."
The keynote address was
delivered by Deputy Prime
Minister, Hon. Gaspar Vega who
acknowledged the hard work and
many long hours that Minister
Contreras expended into making
the presentation a reality for
the people of his constituency.
"Despite the current financial
crisis, caused mainly by the
gross mismanagement of the
nation's economy by the
pervious Administration;" said
the Hon. Gaspar Vega,
"government continues to
move forward with addressing
the needs of the people."
DPM Vega advised all
new land owners to resist the
temptation of selling their land.
"You should develop your land


and those of you who cannot
immediately build on the land,
must assist your Town
Council by keeping your land
clean and clear of tall bushes,"
said DPM Gaspar Vega.
He further encouraged all the
new land owners to begin the
process of converting their leases
into titles so that they can have
full ownership of their land and
in so doing making it difficult for
any politician to take away their
land. "I am making a commit-
ment to you today," said DPM
Vega, "that none ofyou willpay
a cent more than $900 to
convert your lease certificates
into full ownership titles."
In a subsequent interview
Minister Contreras said "I am
not going to wait until a few
weeks before the next general
election to begin giving land to
my people. Politicians can no
longer fool the people with
these kinds of political games
and trickery. My people elected
me to serve them, not only at
election time but for the entire
term in office and I will
continue addressing the needs
of my people in terms of land,
education, health care, housing
and other infrastructure."
