Northern Tour Guides Association Expressing Serious Concern
About Suspected Oil Prospecting In New River Lagoon Area


HOWARD NICHOLSON,
President
ANTONIO NOVELO,
Treasurer
Wednesday, June 2, 2010:
The Northern Tour Guides
Association based in Orange
Walk Town wishes to express
to the general public its
SERIOUS CONCERN about
some suspected oil prospecting
activities expected to happen in
the New River Lagoon area.
For many months we have
noticed that the Mennonites of
Shipyard have been building
boats and barges. We have
enquired from them what they
were doing and they have replied
that it's for oil exploration.
On Thursday afternoon, May
31st 2010, we noticed for the
first time the presence of a
huge boat in the New River by
Orange Walk Town, bearing
registration "HORIZON, BELL
FLORIDA".
It is our understanding that
this boat will be prospecting for
oil in the New River Lagoon
area, south of Lamanai Maya
Archaeological site.
We are seriously concerned
about this development,
especially in view of the
ecological tragedy caused by
British Petroleum in the Gulf of
Mexico. Should something like
that happen in the New River
Lagoon, it would be a disaster
for all the people of Belize,
including those Belizeans yet to
be born.


The New River Lagoon is the
largest freshwater lake we have
in Belize. Unlike other rivers of
Belize that are mountain-fed and
their waters get very murky
during the rainy season (check
the Belize Old River) the New
River is spring-fed. That is why
its waters are very clear all year
round. The New River flows
from south to north, thereby
defying gravity.
The New River is one of the
most historic rivers of Belize
and one of the most strategic of
the Maya world. For thousands
of years before the birth of
Christ, it served as a very i
mportant trading route for the
Maya linking the trade that was
coming from the highlands in
what are the present day
countries of Guatemala, El
Salvador and Honduras, to the
lowlands in the Yucatan and
beyond, and vice versa.
This is the reason why
Lamanai had a continuous,
unbroken occupation spanning
about 33 centuries, from 1500
BC to the AD 1800s. Because of
their strategic control of the
New River, the Maya of
Lamanai never abandoned their
city and they superseded the
most important Maya kingdoms
like Tikal in Guatemala or
Caracol in Belize by about 900
years until malaria, an exotic
disease that arrived in the Maya
world with the arrival of the
European invaders, wiped them
out in the 1800s.


In the time of the Maya,
the New River was named
Dzuilhuinicob, which means
River of Strange People, or
River of Foreigners. Perhaps the
historic destiny of the New River
is to continue being a river of
foreigners, because daily, people
from all over the world use it
when they go to Lamanai to
admire our ancient history.
It's estimated that more
than 100,000, foreigners visit
Lamanai annually and this
number is growing.
The New River is definitely
one of the most beautiful, unique
and pristine rivers of Central
America. An organization named
"Rivers of the World", with
headquarters inAtlanta, Georgia,
USA, documented it to be shown
simulcast to thousand of schools
in the USA, Canada, Hawaii, and
Puerto Rico.
We are proud to say that one
of our members, Mr. Wilfrido
Novelo, was the guide who had
the honor of participating in the
documentary.
For thousands of years
the New River served as the
livelihood of the Maya. For
thousands of years is has
remained clear, clean and
beautiful.
Since 1986 when Lamanai
was opened to the public, at
least two million tourists have
been awed by its beauty and
splendor when they go to visit
this very important Maya
archaeological site.
The New River has the
potential of continuing to be
the livelihood of the Belizean
people for thousands of years if
we preserve it and keep it clean,
safe and beautiful free of any oil
contamination. At a time when
countries are going to war
to secure freshwater sources,
especially in the Middle East,
here in Belize we have a secure
freshwater source that we will be
able to enjoy for thousands of
years. The time to preserve and
protect our New River is before
we lose it.
We call on the Government of
Belize to immediately impose a
perpetual moratorium on any oil
prospecting in the New River
Lagoon. Let us not be the black
eye of the world community
because of OIL GREED that in
the long term will end up being
a CURSE on the Belizean


people. The tragedy in the Gulf
of Mexico that threatens the
coastline of three states in the
USA, which when over, if it is
ever over, will cover an area
larger than the territory of
Belize. This should teach us a
lesson and serve us as a
warning.
An oil spill in the New River
Lagoon will KILL AN ENTIRE
ECOSYSTEM: the ancestral
fishing grounds of our people
will be destroyed when fishes
get poisoned with hydrocarbons;
crocodiles, manatees, river
otters, water fowls like
cormorants and anhingas will
go extinct when their food
sources are destroyed.
Our guides report that they
have spotted jaguars and deer
drinking water on the banks of
the New River. Tapirs swim in
the river also. Iguanas have been
seen diving in the river. A dead
river killed with oil will be of no
good or use for the Belizean
people.
The people and the Govern-
ment of Belize stand to lose with
a dead New River. Our world
admired credibility as an
environmental powerhouse will
be shattered forever. We will
never ever be respected or
appreciated as "mother nature's
best kept secret". No tourists
will want to visit Lamanai
because their experience has
been ruined even before it ever
started. Tourism revenues will
disappear and the livelihood of
hundreds of Belizeans who
depend on Lamanai will cease
to exist. The oil corporations
will be swimming in oceans
of money, their CEOs will be
laughing all the way to the banks
jet setting around the world
enjoying the best the world has
to offer while Belizeans will be
living in need, poverty, suffering
and squalor.
We call on the Belizean
people to support us in our
efforts to protect the New River,
a vital and strategic natural
resource.
We call on our Minister of
Natural Resources, Hon. Gaspar
Vega, to immediately step up the
efforts to enact legislation to
declare the entire New river, from
its beginnings in Hillbank to
Corozal Bay where it empties
into the Caribbean Sea, as a
protected natural monument.
THE PEOPLE OF BELIZE
DESERVE IT, HISTORY
DEMANDS IT!

Four From Roaring Creek Village To The

Twin Towns With Robbery On Their Minds


Pedro Kenroy "Pelon"
Pech, 27
SAN IGNACIO TOWN,
Cayo, Friday, June 4, 2010:
The quartet came from
Roaring Creek Village to the
twin towns of Santa Elena and
San Ignacio on Wednesday
night, not for a musical perform-
ance but rather with criminal
intentions on their minds.
It was shortly after nine
o'clock on Wednesday night,
June 2, when an alert, by way of
a text message, began
to appear on many cellular


Lorenzo Orny "President"
Ho, 23
telephones within the commu-
nity. The text message read
"There is a 4 door tinted car
with Belmopan License that
is robbing people in the Cayo
Area".
The text message was followed
by reports of a Caucasian
couple being robbed on Burns
Avenue in San Ignacio Town.
Armed with the description of
the vehicle, an alert police
sergeant who at the time was on
official duties in Belmopan,


Errol Harold Gabourel, 18 Floyd Emmanuel Neal, 18


decided to immediately return to
his home base to deal with the
matter, whilst on the return
journey to San Ignacio town,
despite the darkness of the
night, the Sergeant spotted a
car fitting the description. It
was travelling on the Western
Highway between the villages of
Blackman Eddy and Teakettle
heading towards Belmopan.
Assistance from Belmopan
police was enlisted.Suspicion
mounted when the car began to


flee from the trailing police
vehicle. It was eventually
intercepted off a feeder road in
Teakettle Village with four
occupants, all in dark clothing,
on board.
The car and all four
occupants were brought into the
San Ignacio police station where
the driver was identified as
Floyd Emmanuel Neal, 18,
Belizean student from Camalote
Village.

Blanch Dies At 76, One

Golden Girl Remaining


Golden Girl Rue McClanahan
dies at 76
BBC New, United Kingdom,
Thursday, 3 June 2010:
Rue McClanahan's character
was known for her romances.
US actress Rue McClanahan,
star of TV show The Golden
Girls, has died following a stroke
at the age of 76, her manager has
announced.
The award-winning performer
played feisty Southern belle
Blanche in the popular series.
McClanahan, who underwent
heart bypass surgery last year,
is the third of the main cast
members to pass away.
Only Betty White remains,
following the deaths of Estelle
Getty and Bea Arthur, who died
in 2008 and 2009 respectively.
Betty White, 88, recently
hosted Saturday Night Live, and
fans are lobbying for her to
present next year's Academy
Awards.


The other three occupants
were identified as Pedro
Kenroy "Pelon" Pech, 27,
Lorenzo Orny "President" Ho,
23 and Errol Harold Gabourel,
18 and all Belizean laborers
residing in Roaring Creek
Village.
By this time, police began
receiving reports of several
robberies committed in the area.
In the first report, Loretta Rivas,
police secretary, reported that
at around 8:30 on Wednesday
night, she was walking on Perez
Street in Santa Elena Town on
her way home after attending
church when a small 4 door car
with tinted glass slowly pulled
up beside her. The car continued
on its path and she noticed the
Belmopan license plate as it
slowly passed her. Rivas
reported that the car pulled
into the next side street. She
continued walking when she was
suddenly accosted by a male
person in dark clothing with a
cloth covering his face. This
individual emerged from
the street into which the car
previously went. The armed
attacker pointed a hand gun at
her and demanded that she hand
over her bag. She complied with
the demand. Her bag contained


Rue McClanahan, 76
"I treasured our relationship,"
she said. "It hurts more than I
ever thought it would, if that's
even possible."
McClanahan had a varied
stage career before landing the
role of Blanche Devereaux in
1985 when The Golden Girls hit
the small screen.
The actress said of her
seductive character: "She is in
love with life and loves men.
"I think she has an attitude
towards women that's
competitive. I think basically
she's insecure."


a one hundred fifty dollars
Samsung cellular telephone, her
social security card, voter's
registration card, Belize Bank
and credit union ATM cards, two
purses, a set of keys for her
police station office and two
bags of mangoes.
In the second and third
reported incidents, American
nationals Sherman Horn,
archeologist and Melissa
Beske, student, reported that
they were walking down Bums
Avenue in San Ignacio Town
when at around nine o'clock on
Wednesday night, in that area
about two house after passing


Betty White (r) is now the sole
surviving Golden Girl
Blanche always referred to her
father as "Big Daddy" and
was the perpetual target of her
housemates.
McClanahan won an Emmy
for her role in 1987.
Five years later, after The
Golden Girls ended, she
co-starred alongside White and
Getty in a short-lived spin-off
called Golden Palace.
Earlier in her career, she had
appeared with Arthur in the
1970s sitcom Maude as her best
friend and sidekick.


In later years, she continued
to appear on TV and on stage,
playing the elderly mother of a
drag queen in 2008 serial
Sordid Lives, which included
the filming of a sex scene.
The actress was recovering
from knee surgery at the time,
but still hung onto a window sill
when the bed she was using
broke.
McClanahan, who was bom
in Oklahoma, married six times
and wrote a memoir in 2007
entitled "My First Five Hus-
bands... And The Ones Who
Got Away."

telephone, digital camera,
insulin treatment, Visa card,
Medical Insurance card, Ameri-
can driver's license and one
hundred fifty dollars in cash for
a total value of nine hundred

Her companion, Sherman
Horn was relieved of his black
leather wallet containing one
hundred seventy Belize dollars,
two Chase Bank credit cards,
one Chase Bank ATM card,
American drivers license and
student card.

Four From Roaring Creek Village To The
Twin Towns With Robbery On Their Minds


In the fourth incident a male
person from Esperanza village
reported that he was held up at
gun point by an individual fitting
the description given by other
three victims. He was relieved of
a cellular telephone charger, a
black bag and a machete file.
A search of the car at the
police station in San Ignacio led
to the discovery of two bags of
mangoes suspected to be the ones
taken from Loretta Rivas. Police
also found a Bank of America
debit card bearing Melissa's
name along with Sherman's

Prime Minister Dean Barrow Reshuffles

His Cabinet To Improve State Of Affairs


By: Wellington C. Ramos


Almost everyone in Belize
knew that the Prime Minister
Honorable Dean Barrow was
planning to reshuffle his Cabinet
at anytime soon. However,
nobody knew to what extent and
how deep this reshuffling would
be and the Ministers who were
going to be affected by it.
The announcement was made
yesterday that a highly qualified,
respected and former tough
Magistrate on the bench in the
person of Bernard Q. Pitts has
been appointed as Belize's new
Attorney General to replace his
good friend and law partner


Hon. Wilfred Elrington our
current Minister of Foreign
Affairs and Foreign Trade.
When the Prime Minister
proposed that he was in favor of
amending the Belize constitution
to give him the opportunity to
appoint a suitably qualified
individual from the private
sector, many people doubted him
and some in the opposition party
accused him of trying to make
the position vacant for his
ex-wife, a friend or relative.
Well, Attorney Bernard Pitts is
not his friend or relative and
even if he was it will be difficult
for the new Attorney General to
be controlled because he is a
person of impeccable character
and the country of Belize will
benefit significantly from this
appointment.
I have known the new
Attorney General for many years
and he is committed to law,
order, justice. He has a passion
for addressin the crime situation
in Belize.
Those with criminal intent


who areplanning to engage in
criminal mischief must think
twice before they venture into
that path.
The Ministry of National
Security was divided with the
current Minister Hon. Carlos
Perdomo Defense but losing
Police and Public Safety to
Senator Hon. Douglas Singh
who was promoted to a full
fledge Minister.
It was rumored for months
that the Minister of National
Security was going to be stripped
of his cabinet portfolio. It is now
being revealed that the ministry
was too large for one Minister
to oversee which led to this
reorganization.
I do not know any of these two
Ministers personally but was
reliably informed that Minister
Perdomo once ran the Ministry
of Defense as a CEO in a
previous UDP government
administration.
I know that Douglas Singh has
done a lot of work for his party
to bring them to power and he is
a Belizean nationalist that is
committed to the development
of his people and country.
With the proper resources and
experienced staff Minister Singh
should do well. His father was
also a no nonsense Judge the
Supreme Court, who served
on the bench during the same
period with Minister Bernard
Pitts our new Attorney General.
The portfolio for youth
was tagged on the Hon. Patrick
Faber's Ministry of Education.
I think that Youth should always
be with education and sports.
Minister Faber is a rising star
within the United Democratic
Party and I have never in all of
Belize's history seen a Minister
of Education like him. He is
committed to the education of
every Belizean child. His
greatest challenge is to make
sure that government has the
financial resources to meet it's
commitment to our children and
youth so that we can help mold
them into productive Belizean
citizens.
Hon. John Saldivar the
Minister of Public Service was
given the Ministry of Sports
which has been thrown around
for the third time in this cabinet
at such a critical stage in our


country's history. Belize needs
to start taking this Ministry
seriously because it is related to
the Ministries of Education and
Youth.
Crime is a major problem in
our country today and if we
could engage our children and
youth in sporting activities, it
would have a major impact in
reducing crimes in our country.
Our country could not even
compete in the international
football arena for the qualifica-
tion matches because of poor
long term planning. The
importance of sports in a
country can help in fostering
good international relations with
other countries in the world to
accomplish great things.
The Minister of the Public
Service is someone I know
personally. He is committed to
ensuring that Belizeans in the
Public Service provide
professional service to Belizean
citizens and the general public
at all times. If you are not
satisfied with the services you
were provided, he will be more
than open to hear your
complaints.
The reshuffling of the Cabinet
is now behind us. There were
other changes made that were
not as important as the ones I
highlighted.
The United Democratic Party
won 25 out of 31 seats in the last
election. It is always difficult for
a Prime Minister to give a
cabinet portfolio to an unelected
individual over one of his
comrades who were elected.
However, when a vacancy exist
and the Prime Minister does not
have a person within his elected
pool with the qualifications and
expertise, he or she must look
outside for such person or
persons. As long as it was done
without vindictiveness towards
anyone, it is considered fair
game. This could cause anger
and resentment among his
colleagues. However, people are
becoming impatient with the
crime and the current economic
situation in our country.
These situations must be
corrected now before it is too late
because next year he and his
party must start to get ready for
elections. When that day comes,
the only question one will ask
is; if he and his party did the best
that they could have done given
the circumstances they faced

BDF Captain Frank Arnold
called home and told his wife
that he would be late again.
He told her that dirty magazines
had been discovered in the
platoon's quarters and so they
had to discipline the whole
platoon.
The wife argued that many
soldiers had pictures hanging
in their lockers at Force

For over 2 years Senator
James Shutzer was having
an affair with an Italian woman.
One night, she confided in him
that she was pregnant.
Not wanting to ruin his
reputation, his career or his
marriage, he told her that he
will pay her a large sum of
money if she would return to
Italy to secretly have the child.
If she stayed in Italy to raise
the child, he would also provide
child support until the child
turned 18.
She agreed, but asked how he
would know when the baby
was born.
To keep it discrete, he told her
to simply mail him a post card,
and write: 'Spaghetti' on the

so his new platoon should not
be penalized for something so
trivial.
Captain Arnold calmly
listened to his wife attempt at
justifying the soldiers' show
of indiscipline and then he
explained, "Honey, dirty

back. He would then arrange
for the child support payments
to begin.
One day, about 9 months later,
Senator Shutzer came home to
his confused wife.
"Honey!," she exclaimed,
"you received a very strange
post card today."
"Give it to me. Let me see it"
he said.
The wife obeyed and watched
as her husband read the card,
turned white, and fainted.
On the card was written:

The Preacher's Paycheck
Pastor Carillo's wife was
expecting a baby, so he stood
before the congregation and
asked for a raise. After much
discussion, they passed a rule
that whenever the preacher's
family expanded, so would his
paycheck.
After 6 children, this started to
get expensive for the church and
so the congregation decided to
hold another meeting to discuss
the preacher's expanding salary.
A great deal of yelling and
inner bickering ensued, as to how
much the Pastor's additional
children were costing the church,

and how much more it could
potentially cost.
After listening to them for
about an hour, the pastor rose
from his chair and spoke,
"Children are a gift from God,
and we will take as many gifts
as He gives us'.
Silence fell on the congrega-
tion.
In the back pew, a little old lady
struggled to stand, and finally
said in her frail voice, "Rain is
also a gift from God, but when
we get too much of it, we wear
rubbers for protection."
The entire congregation said,
'Amen.'

Prime Minister Dean Barrow Reshuffles
His Cabinet To Improve State Of Affairs


when they were elected. The
People's United Party will
criticize the reshuffling of this
cabinet. I just pray and hope that
their criticisms are constructive
because when they were in
power they reshuffled their
cabinet so many times like a
deck of cards but still ended up
with two Jokers. Said Musa's
reshuffling of his cabinet was so
frequent that all teachers gave up
the teaching of cabinet position
to students because as soon as it


was mastered another reshuffle
came along and the teacher just
simply could not keep up with
the many reshufflings.
It is left to be seen if there will
be another reshuffle before the
next election but my wild
guess is telling me no. Prime
Ministers must always avoid
frequent shuffling of the cabinets
as, in the eyes of the general
public it could be portrayed as
the presence of chaos, confusion
and dissention within the ranks
of government.

Primary School with three
hundred eighty three percent
while Henry Fernandez, from
Cayo's Santa Elena RC Primary
School and Kelsey Musa from
Belize Elementary School in
Belize both ranked third with
three hundred eighty percent.
The names of the top ten
finishers countrywide and the
top ten students in the Cayo
District are afforded due
recognition at the end of this
article.
Cayo's top performer Henry
Vincent Fernandez, 12, is
the oldest child of Mario
Fernandez, Belizean Environ-
mental Consulatant and Karen
Herrera-Fernandez, Traffic
Manager for the twin towns of
San Ignacio and Santa Elena.
While this latest achievement
is commendable, Henry has
always been a top student at
Santa Elena RC Primary School
ranking first place consecutively
from Infant 1 right up to
Standard 6.
Santa Elena RC School caters
for a wide cross-section of
students as it continues to
excel in the academics. Santa
Elena RC boasts of being three
time Champion in the National
Coca Cola Spelling B Contest.
Henry attributes this success
foremost to his parents for the
guidance and dedication
afforded to him throught his
years in primary school.
Henry also expressed gratitude
to those many teachers who
assisted in molding him through
the years resulting in this
achievement.
In relation to the examination,
Henry informed that he found
the Creative Writing segment of
the English Exams the most
challenging of all.


In commenting about her son's
remarkable achievement, Mrs.
Karen Fernandez said: "Ibelieve
that parents need to play an
active role in ensuring that their
children get a good quality
education.
My husband and I have been
the driving force, in addition to
the dedicated teachers of Santa
Elena Primary School, to
ensure that Henry invest
quality time in his studies and
always encourage him to work
hard to excel in life.
Giving your child a good
education is an invaluable and
lifetime gift that can never be
compared to any material gifts.
Educating our youths will
help to develop their critical
thinking and mold them into
exemplary citizens in our
society. It will also open a vast
window of opportunities for
them.
Iencourage and challenge all
our Belizean parents to do
likewise. Invest in our
children; they are the future
of tomorrow! Congratulations
to all graduates of 2010 .
Best of luck in your future
endeavours!"
We take this opportunity to
congratulate Siian, Deanna,
Henry, Kelsey and all the top
finishers in this year's PSE. You
have all made proud your
parents and extended families.
Closer to home, we extend
heartful congraltulations to
