she would return to the station
with it. She was released and
when she requested her
telephone and the charger, the
Hispanic policeman reportedly
told her that he will keep it until
she returns with the four hundred
dollars. She left the station and
came back three hours later to
lodge the formal complaint.
While the telephone was not
recovered, the investigation
reportedly led to the discovery
of the charger inside a drawer in
the front desk work station.

COMMiSION COMu1SIO51

The Public Utilities Commission (PUC) hereby serves notice that in accordance with the Water Industry Act, No. 1 of
2001, Section 15 and 19, the Commission intends to modify the license granted by the PUC to the Belize Water Services
Limited (B WS) on March 22, 2001.

Intended Modifications to the License:

The PUC intends to modify Part IV (Authorized Services Areas) of the BWS License as follows:
1. By deleting the words "Progresso Village"
2. By adding the words "Chan Chen Village", "Caye Caulker Village", "Hattieville Village" and "Elridge Village and
Forest Home Village".

Reasons for Modifications:

a. Belize Water services Limited is not the supplier of services to Progresso Village.

whereby GOB partly financed a project for BWS to provide potable water to Caye Caulker Village.
The project was completed in May, 2010.

when BWS was vested with the assets of the Water and Sewerage Authority.
In 2007, the pro-tem Water Board of the joint Eldridge/Forest Home water system, with the support of
the Government of Belize, entered into an agreement with Belize Water Services Limited, for BWS to
manage and operate the existing water system.

Another Round Of Agriculture Gifts For San Antonio


CITY OF BELMOPAN, Cayo
District, Thursday, October
17, 2010:
The Ministry of Agriculture
and Fisheries today informed
that the Hon. Rene Montero
delivered over four hundred
curare plantain suckers, one
thousand cassava cuttings, one
thousand chaya cuttings, six
hundred coco yams and
seventy coconut palm seeds to
the farmers of the San Antonio
Village, Cayo District.
Minister Montero also
delivered one hundred and fifty


Akee plants and sixty roosters to
the villagers.
The roosters will be used for
breeding purposes with local
fowls aimed at increasing egg
production being in line with
the Ministry's Platform of Food
Security which focuses on rural
development and the concept of
the "Farm Family".
This strategy will create
employment for the entire Farm
Family especially the youths,
thus minimizing the migration of
the youth to urban areas in
search of jobs.

Larry KnowlesAOL News
Thursday, October 7, 2010:
"Come on, baby, don 'tfear the
reaper" That's the message, not
from Blue Oyster Cult, from a
Singapore non-profit that
recently revealed a series of
coffins featuring fanciful designs
and festooned with cheery
slogans, such as "Say hello to
my wonderland" and "Hello,
coffin. You seem to be nice."
The 12 caskets, or "Happy
Coffins," represent the winning
designs from an international
competition held by the Lien
Foundation to create caskets
that take the stigma and fear out
of death.
"The traditional negative
associations surrounding the
coffin were transformed to a
celebratory symbol of courage,
life and beauty," foundation
spokeswoman Genevieve Kuek
said in an e-mail to AOL News.
Many of the 733 entries from
33 countries, however, appear
not only to destigmatize the
Grim Reaper but kick him in the
'nads while jabbing him in the
eyes.
Take, for example, the design
by a 30-year-old Martin
Matera of the Czech Republic.
His coffin resembles a pair of
worn jeans, complete with
button collection and beer
bottle jutting from the rear
pocket. A slogan on the lid
exhorts mourners, "Don't cry. I
had a good life."
Then there's the design by
23-year-old Aurel Cablan of
France. Imitating a wine crate,
her coffin appears to hold a
bottle of wine resting amid straw
packing material. Atag dangling
from the stem of the bottle says
"Special Vintage."

Don'tfear the reaper: Whimsical designer coffins, called
'Happy Coffins,' on display in Singapore. The coffins,
introduced last week by the Lien Foundation are intended
to help take the fear out of death.


But for all the irreverence
toward death, Happy Coffins
may have the Lord on its side.
The project was born from a
conversation between Lien
Foundation CEO Lee Poh Wah
and Sister Geraldine Tan,
administrator of St. Joseph's
Home and Hospice in Singapore.
Tan had seen decorated coffins
during a trip to Australia and
wanted to make them available
to residents of her facility, but
she didn't know how.
Enter the Lien Foundation,
which advocates improved
palliative care and practices what
it calls "radical philanthropy."
Once the idea had been jointly
developed, Tan approached 10
residents of the home and asked
how they would feel about
being buried in customized
coffins.
Not everyone was comfortable
with the idea. Only five residents
expressed interest. Of the five,
Tan chose three women 76-
year-old Elsie Chua, 90-year-old
Kitty Fogh and Magdalene
Khoo, 70 to team with
graphic designers and have


coffins made.
In its announcement, the
foundation released photos of
the three women posing with
their dream coffins. Chua's
casket bears a likeness to a
wreathed porcelain vase, while
Fogh's features whimsical
floating angels. Khoo's presents
an embroidery motif with the
word "thankful" cross-stitched
into the side.
While the Lien Foundation
hopes to find global acceptance
for Happy Coffins, it remains to
be seen whether the concept will
appeal to a larger demographic.
Taboos can be tough to bust, and
when they involve something as
absolute as death they can be
positively intractable.
So far, the Lien Foundation
hasn't taken any flak from across
the spiritual spectrum, though
Kuek admitted, "I'm sure
people have differing views
about the desirability of Happy
Coffins."
Sponsored Links "Death is a
radioactive topic which most
people avoid like a plague," she
said. "As such, we want to


lighten the atmosphere, disarm
and motivate people to think
about their life before death
differently. "
To lighten things up,
the foundation has set up a
companion website, Life Before
Death. It offers a menu of
playful activities, such as "Last
Playlist," which encourages
visitors to make a soundtrack for
their own funeral. The intro page
displays a sickle doubling as a
record needle and asks, "When
you're stiff as a board, does the
music have to be too?"
The foundation has also
personified death on Facebook,
where fans can "befriend"
Death and engage in what Kuek
calls "die-logues. "And why not
- seasons don't fear the reaper,
so why should you?

A New Maximum Security Prison And Prison

Warden Academy Urgently Needed In Belize


By: Wellington c. Kamos


Since the main prison in the
Belize was moved from Belize
City several years ago and
relocated to Hattieville, several
infractions have been committed
by Prison Wardens, prisoners
and people who visit their
relatives who are incarcerated.
Most of the infractions that are
occurring, are in violation of
Belize's Criminal Laws and the
Prison Ordinance of Belize. In
addition, criminals retiring to
Belize from the United States
and other neighboring countries
are so well seasoned that the
public safety is at risk when
these people escape from prison.
Belize has more than enough
land to build a prison elsewhere
in the country where they can
relocate hard core criminals and
separate them from the criminals


who are serving time for minor
offenses.
I have never heard of Belize
having a Belize Warden
Training Academy. Belize has
training academies for the Belize
Police Department and the
Defense Force.
In the past, people were just
randomly recruited taken to the
prison on Gabourel Lane given
a uniform and they instantly
become a Prison Warden.
I am not sure if this process has
been upgraded since the 1970's.
To have people who have not
received any type of training be
given such a dangerous job put
that person and the lives of other
citizens at great risk.
Prisoners are human beings
and they do not like confine-
ment. Even though one can say
that confinement of a prisoner is
due to his or her own cause, they
will still find a way to escape
from prison if given the
opportunity.
When the main prison was
in the city of Belize, some of the
prisoners were taken to
Rockville and other surrounding
areas of the city to do work while
serving their terms in prison.
Others stayed inside the prison
compound and learnt different


imaII

TO COMMUNITIES ALONG 1T1E

'~ ~ .._ ".--


types of trades as part of their
rehabilitation process. This was
a good program because many
of these former criminals were
rehabilitated and became law
abiding and productive citizens.
Most of them were engaged in a
profession in the communities
where they lived after their
release from prison.
Today in Belize, there is an
increase in the amount of
apprehension for crimes that are
committed by repeat offenders.
The rehabilitation of prisoners
while they are incarcerated, is
an integral part of a crime
prevention program and the
government must be aware of its
positive impact.
Studies conducted in the past,
confirm that countries that have
a good rehabilitation program
in their prisons have seen a
substantial decrease in their
crime rates.
The Hard Core Criminals
present more danger to the
society than the First Offenders
and to have them mixed together
in the same prison is not a wise
thing to do. All they will do is
talk about the crimes that they
committed while they were on
the streets and how they avoided
the police.
In today's world with the rise
of gangs, it is public knowledge
that recruitment takes place in
prisons throughout the world. It
is documented that in many
prisons, not only is recruitment
taking place but some criminal
activities are being planned in
those prisons. This is why
electronic devices have to be
installed in these prisons to
monitor prisoners, their visitors
and prison personnel.
In the United States when
people go to visit a prisoner, they
feel like prisoners themselves
and this is one of the main
reasons why people only go if
they have to.
Since the 911incident, the
United States is like a prison
everywhere because when going
into most Federal, State and City
buildings, you are searched
thoroughly before you enter
the building like a criminal.
American citizens are annoyed
by this new development but
cannot do anything about it.
I applaud the new reform
measures that the government of


Belize has put forward. I am also
conscious of the fact that for
every proposal put forward, the
issue of funding will always be
the determining factor as to
whether to implement or not
implement every given proposal.
Including this reform agenda can
only help to enhance more
security in our country.
Belize is surrounded by
Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras
and El Salvador who are having
more problems with their gangs
and hard core criminals. When
these criminals escape from their
respective countries, they will
come to Belize and try to
intermingle with the Belizean
population. This will seriously
jeopardize the safety of our
citizens and government
officials.
In Mexico today, the criminals
are creating so much havoc
that they are threatening the
country's national security.
Members of the Mexican
government are assassinated
and more are targeted
for assassinations. Government
officials and citizens of Mexico
continue to live in fear for their
lives.
The United States government
is concerned that these people
will be doing the same in their
country and it is in their interest
to assist these countries to stop
this reign of terror.
America is willing to provide
Belize and others with the funds
and the technical equipment
they need to stop this new wave
of crime in their countries.
The Minister of Police and
Public Safety from Belize the
Hon. Douglas Singh, should
seek the assistance of the US
Ambassador in Belize to call on
the US government to assist
Belize.
In a statement made by US
Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton, she spoke about the
crime situation in the region and
the need for governments to act
swiftly to stop the crimes.
I am certain that she knows
that the countries in the region
do not have the financial
resources and the technology to
do it on their own. Belize was
always a safe place to live. In
fact, the biggest problem with
violent crimes is in the city of
Belize and we must stop
these crimes now, before they
spread into the other districts
throughout our peaceful and
beloved country.

incursions to the Chiquibul
Forest, the largest protected area
in Belize.
Our partnership with Restore
Belize is a unique one in that it
is a one-time investment and
geared to providing high school
scholarship aid to many young
men and women who would not
otherwise have the opportunity
attend high school. In addition,
the efforts are geared toward
affording these children an
opportunity to visit our protected
areas and instill in them a
sense of ownership of our
natural and cultural resources.
The Restore Belize Programme
was established in June of this
year by the Government of
Belize with the goal of making
Belize a safe home for its
residents.
Lastly, $50,000 was awarded
to the Belize Fishermen
Cooperative Association to
strengthen their capacity for a
greater level of fishermen
participation in the fisheries


management. The institutional
strengthening of the Belize

utilize our marine protected
areas. Therefore, by strengthen-
ing this organization they will
be able reach out to over 1,200
fishermen throughout Belize and
provide the necessary training in
best practices.
These investments today bring

visitors for their commitment
and continued efforts to
sustainably manage our natural
resources.

Two Arrested For Robbing A Grandmother

Mistaking Kindness ...


Bob went over to Joe's house
and was amazed at how well
Joe treated his wife.
Joe often told her how
attractive she was. He often
complemented her on her
cooking and showered her with
hugs and kisses.
"Gee," Bob remarked later,
"you really make a big fuss
over your wife".
"I started to appreciate her
more about six months ago,"
Joe said. "It has revived our
marriage and we couldn't be
happier."


At one point during a baseball
game, the coach said to one of
his young players, "Johnny,
do you understand what
cooperation is? What a team
is?"
Johnny nodded in the
affirmative.
"Do you understand that
what matters is whether we
win together as a team?"


Although her husband was the
best auto mechanic in town, Jill
had a hard time getting him to
work on her car.
Last Monday was just one of
those days when Jill called him.
"Honey, do you remember me
telling you since last week to fix
the brakes on my car? asked Jill.
"Yes" responded Peter" Now
what's the matter? he asked.


Inspired by Joe's actions, Bob
hurried home, hugged his wife
and told her how much he loved
her and said he wanted to hear
all about her day. But she burst
into tears.
"Honey," Bob said, "what's'
the matter?".
"This has been the worst
day," she replied. "Billy fell off
his bike this morning and
broke his ankle, then the car
would not start, then the
washing machine broke. Now
to top it all off, you come home
drunk!".


Johnny nodded yes.
"So," the coach continued,
"when a strike is called, or
you're out at first, you don't
argue or curse or attack the
umpire. Do you understand
all that?"
Again Johnny nodded.
"Good," said the coach, "now
go right over there and explain
it to your mother."


"My brakes went out," Jill
said. "Can you come to get
me?"
"Where are you?" Peter
asked.
"I'm in the library," Jill
responded.
"And where is the car?" Pe-
ter asked.
Jill replied, "It's right in here
with me."

BELIZE CITY, Thursday,
October 7, 2010:
Belize City police today
reported the arrest of two male
persons in connection with the
Monday, October 4 invasion of
the home of a 69 year old
Belize City grandmother.
While two person have been
arrested, one in particular,
Michael Matute, 19, is charged
for a direct involvement in the
crime while the other is facing
two charges stemming from the
criminal act.
Matute was arrested and
charged for the crime of
aggravated burglary and
conspiracy to commit aggravated
burglary while the second
suspect, Jerome Wade, 20,
was merely charged for handling
stolen goods and conspiracy to
commit aggravated burglary.
Most of the stolen items
were recovered as the search
continues for the other individual

along with Matute.
The arrest resulted from a
Monday, October 4 incident
reported by Ms. Rosaline
Munnings, 69, Belizean
grandmother of #38 Zericote
Street, Belize City.
In her report to the police Ms.
Munnings informed that at 1:50
pm, she was inside her house
watching television while her
granddaughter was inside her
room when suddenly two male
persons entered the house.
She described one of the
intruders as being of dark
complexion, slim built,
about 5 feet 6 inches
in height, low hair
cut, narrow face and
wearing a pair of
earring.
According to the
victim, this individuals
had a black object,
resembling a gun, in
his hand which he L_
reportedly pointed at


Jerome Wade, 20


her and said "DON'T MAKE
ANY NOISE, OR ELSE I
WILL KILL YOU".
The intruder then pushed her to
the floor and taped her mouth
and her hands after which he
proceed to relieve her of the
jewellery she was wearing which
included a gold necklace, a set
with gold bracelet, a double link
gold bracelet, three gold rings,
one with a white and blue stone,
the other with a white gold heart
and the other with a diamond.
The other male person,
described as being of fair
complexion, about 5 feet 8

low hair cut proceeded to search
inside the living room and other
rooms and stole several items of
jewellery, cellular telephones,
electronic devices and other
personal property which we
packed into a black bag after
which they both departed the
scene.
A relative informed that the
child contacted her mother via
telephone and told her of the
incident while it was till in
progress. She immediately
contacted the police after which
she left work and rushed home.
By the time she arrived the
robbers had already departed the
scene. The family estimate the
value of the missing items at
BZ$12, 370. Prompt action on
the part of Belize City's Crimes
Investigation Branch led to
discovery of most of the stolen
items except the reported $400
cash and a touch screen cellular
telephone.

It Has All The Characteristics Of A Scam


If it walks like a duck, quacks
like a duck, then there is a high
probability that it is a duck.
Last week we received,
accepted and published an
advertisement for "Free
Puppies". In light of the
responses we have been getting
from readers, it looks like this is
one of those many scams
currently invading the internet.
We take this opportunity to ask
readers to please disregard the
ad and we apologize for all
inconvenience this might have
caused.
This latest incident serves to
show that even after 10 years in
this business we are still
learning new things.
We are herewith producing one
of the many comments we have
received thus far with the
standard response received from
the ad originator one "Rev
simon ".

Dear Editor;
I contacted this so called Rev.
simon in reference to your
article FREE PUPPIES and this
is the response I got. Can it be a
HOAX? or a SCAM?

Good day,
Thank you very much and I'm
very happy to read from you
about your response on taking
good care of the babies.
They are 9 weeks old and both
home trained and outdoor trained
also playful with other animals
and kids.
The male named (Adam)
weigh 21bs and the female named


(Eve) weigh 2.21bs. They are
both A K C registered and shots
are given up to date (Vet
certificate) and both home
trained. Both of them are my
darling sweetheart and super
spoiled! They both have a sweet
personality and love to play and
be carried around.
But I'm very sorry to tell you
that it is somehow late for you
to get the babies now. What
really happened was that I just
left the state for Africa in some
few days ago after I posted the
ad the 2 Yorkshire Puppies on the
newspaper and before I left, I did
not get any response from any-
body that could take very good
care of them for me. So I got a
missionary call from our
missionary head quarters in

babies along with me here in
Africa since I couldn't find
someone to adopt them before I
left the state.
I'm still willing to give the
babies out to someone who can
take very good care of them for
me. All papers will accompany
the puppies when shipped to
you. Due to our long staying
over here in Africa, and the bad
weather my wife and I have
concluded to get good home and
care for our babies.
We are not charging or selling
them to you for money as we
have said in the paper but to save
their lives saved and care for
them so this means that, I want
you to please know that you and
I will be paying for the shipment
of the puppies to you.
They are VET checked, but
right now we are in Africa on a
Christian mission with my wife
and 3 kids together with Eve and
Adam. We have the puppies right
here with us.
I want you to know that my
babies are very expensive and
we just have to save their lives,
that's why we are giving them
out for no charge. We have been
looking for someone responsible
that will take care of them and
not sell them away for money
and also I don't want you to make
them feel alone.
We are going to ship to you via
a Pet Delivery Company on next
day delivery and they will be

Please if you know that you
are not capable of taking very
good care of my babies, do not
reply me because I am
giving them out because of bad
condition and we're spending
months for the Christian mission
and I don't want Eve and Adam
to die in this bad weather. And
because we don't have time to
take care of them due to the
missionary work before us here.
They are priceless to me
therefore I am giving both for
free. Please I want you to
promise me that you will take
very good care of them as soon
as they get to you.
Thank you and God bless you
and your family.

After 25 Years On The Road Texaco

Reportedly Jacked In Mexico


Town Council with a boat in tow.
He cleared US Customs at the
Mexican border at around 9:00
am on Wednesday, September
22, 2010. He was only an hour
inside Mexican territory from
the US border, travelling with a
friend, when they were stopped
at a "Policia Transito" check
point manned by four uniformed
traffic policemen with four
marked patrol cars parked
nearby.
When he stopped at the
checkpoint he was ordered out
of the vehicle and the next thing
he felt was an officer's hand
inside the pockets of his pants.
He said that he had just
changed US$600 dollars into
Mexican pesos for the trip
through Mexico. He therefore
had about $6,600 Mexican
pesos in the wallet and when the
wallet was handed back to him
all that was left inside was $600
pesos.
He said that the policemen
were specifically looking for
cash because, although they
searched the truck, they were
not interested in the cellular
telephones and other electronic
items in it. He was then
reportedly ordered to get back
into the truck and to drive away.
He said that he complied with
the order and drove for about 20


miles before stopping at the next
village to wait for the friend
with whom he was travelling and
who was also held up behind him
at the same checkpoint.
The friend never showed up
and while he was waiting, he met
a woman in a van to whom he
related the incident. She advised
him to report the matter to the
police but, fearing that they were
all involved in the conspiracy, he
instead sought her assistance
for direction to the municipality
especially given that he was on
a municipal assignment for
Belize.
The lady then directed him to
the municipal office where he
made an official report to the
secretary since the Mayor was
not available.
The secretary reported the
matter to the local police chief
who arrived shortly thereafter
and took note of the complaint
before leaving. He later returned
with 2,000 pesos which he said
was all the money the policemen
had. He further informed that
the policemen told him that
Texaco voluntarily gave them
the money. Texaco denied
having done so. He was asked if
he wanted to proceed with
criminal action against the
officers but was cautioned that
any such proceeding would take
about a month to be finalized and


since he could not afford the
waiting period, he decide to just
let it slide. He took the 2,000
pesos and continued waiting
for the friend for almost 24
hours after the incident.
When the friend did not show
up he decided to continue the
journey alone. He drove for
another 30 miles when he met
the friend waiting for him at the
next village.
The friend said that he was
waiting there for almost 24 hours
and that the police at the same
checkpoint ordered him to take
another route after they took
5,000 pesos from him.
With hardly any money left
they were forced to sell off some
of the personal items they were
bringing just to get by.
Realizing that there was no way
they could make it through
Mexico with the little money
they had left, Texaco found a
Western Union office through
which, two days later, he
received some money sent to
him by Mayor of San Ignacio/


Santa Elena, John August
and so he had enough cash to
continue the journey to Belize.
Texaco informed that after 25
years of travelling through
Mexico, he has grown used to
giving a little "mordida" here
and there along the route through
Mexico, but this was the very
first time that he has been
officially robbed by those whose
job it is to protect.
To further aggravate the
situation, Texaco said that in
conversation with them, some
Mexicans from adjacent
communities say that they
themselves are fearful of
coming in contact with
policemen in the community
where he was robbed because
they are notorious for this kind
of action as even Mexicans fall
victims of this type of criminal
behaviour. In sharing his
ordeal, Texaco informed that he
is merely doing it as a means of
alerting the public of the evil
that could befall them when
traversing Mexico.
