Resolve The Problem Soon


By: Wellington C. Ramos
One of the most prosperous and
thriving Garifuna village in the
country of Belize is Hopkins.
According to Garifuna history this
village was created after a severe
hurricane destroyed a previous
settlement near the Commerce
Bight pier in Dangriga Town.
The residents of this village use
to be mostly Garifuna people
comprising the Nunez, Castillo,
Martinez, Arana and Lewis
families. There are other families in
the village who have integrated into
these families over the years.
Hopkins is geographically situated
to the south of Dangriga and Silk
Grass, north of Sittee River, west
of the Caribbean sea and east of the
plush Maya Mountain Range.
The people in this village use to
survive by fishing and farming.
Many of them join the civil service
as Police, Soldiers, Teaching,
Nurses and other branches of the
Public Service.
Today, several people from
Hopkins are in the business of
tourism because the place is famous
for its beautiful beaches.
Due to the beautiful beaches that
Hopkins possess, rich Belizeans
and foreign nationals have been
buying up lands in the village and
surrounding areas to open up
tourist resorts.
Many residents of Hopkins have
and are migrating to the United
States to join their family members,
pursue higher education or to
improve their economic situation.
While this is occurring, there is a
significant drop in the population
growth among the Garifuna people
and an increase in the population
of the newcomers.
A majority of the government
land is being sold to private
land owners for residential and
commercial purposes. When some
villagers experience economic
hardship, they lean to sell their
properties to foreigners for what
they believe is a large amount of
money.
In Urban Planning it is always
wise for the government not to sell
lands in the immediate vicinity of a
village, town or city so that the land
could be available for expansion
purposes.
If the government make the
mistake and sell those lands, when
the need for expansion arrives they
will be forced to exercise its right
to eminent domain to acquire


additional lands for expansion. This
could result in lengthy court
litigation and exuberant cost for the
lands needed.
The village of Hopkins seems to
be at a point where they can only
expand north towards the village of
Silk Grass and Dangriga town along
the coast to remain on the beach
front properties.
The Garifuna people from the
time they were living in their native
homeland of St. Vincent and other
islands in the Caribbean were
always accustomed to living by the
beaches. Getting them to move
towards Silk Grass, even if it was
possible will be difficult because
most of them will resist such idea
or recommendation. North of
Hopkins is Commerce Bight
Lagoon and then Commerce Bight
Pier which is in the jurisdiction of
Dangriga Town. This will be
moving backwards instead of
forward because they will be
returning to the same place where
some of their ancestors lived many
years ago before they moved to
their current location.
For the people of Hopkins to
have a future in their current
village, the village council should
devise a long term development
future plan with their area
representative. This plan should
include the discontinuation of
selling vacant government lands in
the immediate vicinity of Hopkins
and the purchasing of available
private lands to be included in
the Hopkins Village Expansion
Reserves.
The prices of these lands once
they become private, will be too
expensive for the government to
purchase. Private land owners will
price their lands at a cost to
earn huge profits or to make it
impossible for the government to
afford with the intent to block the
expansion of Hopkins Village.
Rich people end to be more
comfortable in isolation and
seclusion. They are opposed to
having people from different
ethnicity with marginal or
no income living within their
community.
Since the mass migration of
foreign nationals to our shores,
many Belizeans are experiencing
discrimination by some of these
foreign nationals for trying to visit
or gain access through their private
properties.
As Belize continue to attract more
of these people to our country, the
situation will only worsen instead
of getting better. It is not fair and
just for native citizens of Belize, to
be discriminated against by
newcomers who they have
welcomed into their country.
This is now the right time for


the Ministry of Natural Resources
to consider establishing a National
Parks System to preserve and
maintain all of their reserve lands.
I recently visited the villages of
Hopkins, Silkgrass and Sittee River
and I am frankly not satisfied with
some of the disturbing things that I
observed.
Most of the things I was hearing
about Hopkins I thought were lies
and fabrication. After the visit, I
have concurred that there exist a
legitimate concern which the
Hopkinsonians. The Government of
Belize should address this situation


now before it is too late.
The purpose of good
governments is to look after the
welfare of the people who voted for
them to serve them.
I have already stated the
problems, now it is the task of the
people of Hopkins to advocate on
their own behalf to make sure that
this problem be resolved as soon as
possible.
It is my intention to monitor the
reaction and the progress that is
being made by the Government of
Belize towards the resolution of this
problem.


Garry Seawell Acquitted Of Drug Tr


Tuesday, May 11 in connection
with 11 criminal charges
relating to the February 9,
2010 discovery of arms and
ammunition on the remote farm
in Esperanza Village. An
application for bail was
presented on Seawell's behalf by
Attorney Richard "Dickie"
Bradley resulting in the court
proceeding to offer bail in the
sum of $30,000 with instructions
for the accused to reappear in
court on Wednesday, June 9,
2010.
While this would have been
the order for Seawell to be
released on bail, the police and
the prosecution brought up the
matter of an extradition order via
which Seawell is wanted by US
Marshalls to answer charges in

connection with allegations
of his involvement in the
smuggling, along with two of his
brothers, of 163 pounds of
cocaine through Belize onto
Chetumal with Cleveland, Ohio,
USA being the final destination.
Despite the court's order for
bail, Seawell was shackled and
returned to the police holding
cell. In the interim, an exchange
of telephone calls ensued
resulting in Magistrate Anna
Rachel Montejo requesting the
immediate reappearance of the
accused before her court. When
Seawell and his attorney
appeared, Magistrate Montejo
informed them of the reversal of
the previous order for bail, not
on the basis of the extradition
order but because the accused
had previously violated the
conditions of bail by not
appearing in court. She
nevertheless advised them
that bail could be sought by
applying to the Chief Magistrate
or a higher court in Belize
City.
The accused was subsequently
re-shackled and immediately
returned, in special transport
and under special police guard,
to the central prison in
Hattieville.

published in the Belize Gazette
dated 1st May 2010.
The Caribbean Court of
Justice will now replace the
Privy Council as the highest
Court of Appeal for Belize. This
will not, however, affect any
appeals pending before the
Privy Council on the 31st May
2010.
The Caribbean Court of
Justice, commonly known as
"CCJ", was established by
Caribbean countries on the 14th
February 2001. So far, only
Barbados and Guyana have
joined the CCJ. Belize will be


the third country to do so.
The present seat of
the Caribbean Court of Justice
is in Port of Spain, Trinidad
and Tobago. However, the
Agreement establishing the
CCJ provides that the Court
may sit in the territory of any
other Contracting Party as the
circumstances may require.
The removal of the age-old
Privy Council as the highest
Court for Belize and its
replacement by the Caribbean
Court of Justice represents a
major landmark in the
constitutional and legal history
of Belize and has been widely
welcomed among the Caribbean
Community.

An Athlete, An Educator, A Friend, A Son

The latest Victim of Lawlessness In The City


A single gunshot at around
11:20 pm on Wednesday, May
12, 2010 in the streets of Belize
City instantly ended the life of
a basketball star, a charismatic
educator, a humble friend, the
son of the Mayor of Belize's
Capital City, Belmopan.
When police arrived on the
scene they came upon the
lifeless body of AUBREY
DWIGHT LOPEZ, 30,
Belizean Educator at Edward P.
Yorke High School, lying face
down in the middle of Prince
Street, Belize City with a single
gunshot wound to the left side
of the head.
Initial investigation revealed
that simultaneously with the


AUBREY DWIGHT LOPEZ,
30
SUNRISE: August 10, 1979
SUNSET: May 12, 2010
sound of the single gunshot,
a light blue Nissan Altima car
belonging to the victim, was seen


speeding from the scene.
Swift investigation led to
police tagging the car bearing
license plates C-34741 with 5
persons therein. By the time the
police caught up with the car,
three of the occupants were
gone while the other two were
detained as the search is
underway for all three escapees.
Police also found a chrome
Smith and Wesson brand point
38 special revolver inside the car.
The body was removed from


the scene and transported to
Belize City's Karl Heusner
Memorial Hospital where it
awaits the legally required post
mortem examination.
Arrangements are underway
for a 2:00 pm funeral service on
Sunday, May 16, 2010 at the UB
Gymnasium in Belmopan.
We join with the rest of
Belize in offering sincere
sympathies to Mayor Lopez,
Mrs. Lopez, other members of
the Lopez family and friends on
the tragic passing of Aubrey in
the very prime of his life. We
pray for the eternal resting of his
soul.

the path where my German
Shepherd led us and Officer Cab
persevered in an exhaustive search
until he found the stolen items that
had been bagged and stored under
bushes for later pick-up by the
thieves.
I have witnessed other situations
with Officer Cab and found him to
be excellent at his work. He is
patient, fair, thoughtful, under-
standing, diplomatic and very
thorough. His investigative instinct
and abilities are to be commended
and the people of Valley of Peace
are fortunate to have his protection
and commitment.
I also wish to thank Officers
Castillo, Perez, and Mesh from the
Belmopan Police for their prompt
response and support.

made the switch from BTL to

This was a terrible mistake. The

Oh how I am longing to make the

Different Strokes For Different Folks


Disaster


One afternoon a man came
home from work to find total
mayhem in his house.
His three children were
outside, still in their pajamas,
playing in the mud, with empty
food boxes and wrappers strewn
all around the front yard.
The door of his wife's car was
open, as was the front door to
the house.
Proceeding into the entry, he
found an even bigger mess.
A lamp had been knocked over,
and the throw rug was wadded
against one wall.
In the front room the TV was
loudly blaring a cartoon channel,
and the family room was strewn
with toys and various items of
clothing.
In the kitchen, dishes filled the
sink, breakfast food was spilled
on the counter, dog food was
spilled on the floor, a broken


glass lay under the table, and a
small pile of sand was spread by
the back door. He quickly headed
up the stairs, stepping over toys
and more piles of clothes,
looking for his wife.
He was worried she may be ill,
or that something serious had
happened. He found her
lounging in the bedroom, still
curled in the bed in her pajamas,
reading a novel. She looked up
at him, smiled, and asked how
his day went. He looked at her
bewildered and asked, "What
happened here today?"
She again smiled and
answered, "You know everyday
when you come home from
work and ask me what in the
world did I do today?"
"Yes," was his incredulous
reply.
She answered, "Well, today I
didn't do it."

These two country boys,
brothers, were knocking around
one lazy summer day and
thought it would be a good prank
to push over the outhouse. They
crept up from an advantageous
direction like a couple of
commandos, pushed the
outhouse over on one side and
headed for the woods. They
circled round and returned home
an hour later from a completely
different direction thus, trying
to divert suspicion from
themselves.
Upon returning, their father
approached them with switch in
hand and bellowed, "Did you
two push the outhouse over this
afternoon?"
The older boy replied, "As
learned in school, I cannot tell
a lie. Yes, Father, we pushed
over the outhouse this


afternoon."
At this revelation, the farmer
proceeded to beat the two boys
severely and sent them to bed
without supper.
In the morning, the two
boys meekly approached the
breakfast table and took their
seats. Everything was quiet
until their father finally said,
"Have you two learned your
lesson?"
"Sure, Dad!" said the
big brother, "But, in school
we learned that George
Washington admitted to HIS
father that he'd chopped down
a cherry tree and he was
forgiven because he told the
truth."
"Ah yes!" said the farmer,
"BUT George's DAD, wasn 't in
the cherry tree when he
chopped it down!!!"

MURDER/ROBBERY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD


west, towards the Hawksworth
Bridge. The one heading east
immediately turned around and
soon caught up with the other
two.
The trio then ran through a
nearby alley, as if heading
towards the wooden bridge and
they all disappeared into the
darkness.
We rushed downstairs, entered
the restaurant where we met a
traumatized husband and wife
couple who were the only
customers inside the restaurant.
They told us that the Chinese
lady was shot. On the floor
behind the counter was the
motionless victim on top of a
screaming infant child.
The female customer, a nurse
by profession, sprang into action
in aid of the injured victim but
soon informed of undetected
pulse and other vital signs.
The police were called in.
They arrived about 15 minutes
later and they took charge of the
crime scene. The gathering
outside the restaurant began to
swell among which were several
Chinese persons.
About an hour later the body
was removed from the scene
and transported by the police
to the San Ignacio Town
Hospital where it was officially
pronounced dead by the
Medical Officer on duty,
Dr. David Pacheco.
Investigations revealed that at
about 10:30 pm on Sunday, May
9, three masked persons, one
armed with a handgun, entered
Alwin's Restaurant, located on
the Western Highway in Santa
Elena, Cayo.
The restaurant was operated,
for the past 6 months by Chinese
couple Nanxin Chen, 26 and his
common law wife, Zhennong
Zhen, 26. As is usual, Nanxin
Chen, the cook, was inside the
kitchen while Zhennong Zhen,
with her 7 month old daughter
in a sling on her back as usual,
was tending the counter.
The armed individual
reportedly pointed the gun at
Zhen from close range and
demanded money. Zhen
reportedly shouted "thief" in
Chinese. The gunman fired a
single shot from point blank
range. The bullet struck Zhen in
the upper right portion of her
chest. The mother fell to the floor
with her infant child strapped to


THE BULLET TRAIL: 1 through the victim who was standing in front of the freezer;
2 off the top of the freezer; 3- through the celotex wall, 4 exiting the celotex wall,
5 bouncing off a metal plate, 6 landing inside the plate rack


her back. Chen rushed out of the
kitchen only to be slapped in the
face with the gun. One of the
assailants then stepped over the
wounded mother and the
screaming child. He opened the
cash drawer and hastily stuffed
cash, phone cards and a cellular
telephone in his pocket after
which they all ran out of the
restaurant.
According to the police the
murderer/robbers could not have
made off with a haul of more
than $400 including cash and
the value of the phone cards.
The slug went through the
victim, slid off the top of the
freezer behind her, through
the wall, hitting a metal plate
before landing in the plate rack

It was identified as a 38 caliber
bullet and in the absence of an
empty shell; police suspect that
it was fired from a revolver.
Further investigation revealed
that in the process of descend-
ing the hill towards San Ignacio,
the attackers walked in the
bushes towards the wooden
bridge where they met a male
and female couple along
the banks of the river on the
Santa Elena side. One of them
reportedly asked the male
person if the river crossing was
deep and when he was told that
it was not deep, they walked
across the river into San Ignacio.
It happened that this male
person was an off duty
policeman and when he sensed
the weirdness of the occurrence
he unsuccessfully attempted to
relay the observation via the
911 emergency line.
In the process of the
investigation, officers from the
local Crimes Investigation
Branch rounded up, detained,
questioned and released about 10
male persons, mostly from Santa
Elena Town.
The investigation reportedly
changed direction around mid
morning on Thursday, May
13, as investigators are now
reportedly pursuing leads in
Belize City.
The legally required
post mortem examination
was conducted by Forensic
Specialist Dr. Mario
Estradabran, at the Karl


Heusner Memorial Hospital in
Belize City betweenll:45
am and 1:00 pm on Wednesday,
May 12. Dr. Estradabran
certified the cause of death as
resulting from "internal and
external bleeding due to aorta
injury as a consequence of a
gunshot wound to the chest".
In expression of sympathy, all
Chinese establishments in San
Ignacio and Santa Elena were
closed for business between
12 noon and 6:00 pm on
Wednesday, May 12. Relatives
informed that the body was
cremated on Thursday, May 13
and that the ashes will be handed
over to the parents of the
deceased in China.
Also in an expression of
sympathy, flowers and candles
continue to accumulate on a
small table placed in front of the
restaurant which has remained
closed since the incident.
