BELIZE

CITRUS

GROWERS

ASSOCIATION _ _-



CGA DENOUNCES DR. HENRY CANTON's PLAN TO TERMINATE 105+ CPBL EMPLOYEES
The CGA was made aware of the intention on the part of Dr. Henry Canton to close down the operation of the Citrus Company of Belize Ltd
processing facility at the start of the 2011/12 crop year.

We are aware that Dr. Henry Canton has sought a meeting with Government to discuss this plan and has had members of the management team
sound out union officials, promising them a detailed plan sometime in the month of June.

Last week Thursday, at a meeting of the Pound Solids Committee, a member of the CPBL management team mentioned the plan to close the CCB
processing plant. A member of the CGA Committee of Management who happens to be a Director of the CPBL pointed out that it was unaccept-
able that such a material decision was being discussed in public but that as a member of the Board of Directors of CPBL he was not aware of any
such concept or plan. He pointed out further that Belize Citrus Growers Association Investment Company Ltd (BCGAICL) was totally unaware
of such a plan and as the majority shareholder should have been consulted especially in light of the grave consequences that such a move would
have on many of the employees at CPBL and on the local economy in the South. This would not mark the first time decisions are taken at CPBL
that the directors of the majority shareholder know nothing about. As an example we point to the launch of Banks Beer in Belize that is imported
and distributed by CPBL. Like all Belizeans the directors learnt of this via the media. We have every reason to believe that this could be a similar
circumstance where Dr. Henry Canton in discussion with Banks - Barbados hatched this plan.

It is in this context that we have decided to make fully public the initiatives that Dr. Henry Canton is contemplating at CPBL. The public is
reminded that Dr. Canton was terminated by CPBL at its December 17th 2010 Extraordinary General Meeting. Dr. Henry Canton with the support
of Banks - Barbados directors on the CPBL Board has refused to demit office.

We see this latest move as yet another clear indication of Dr. Henry Canton's failure at CPBL and yet another sign that he is doing potentially
irreparable damage to the Citrus Industry. It is a crying shame that he and some senior managers at CPBL have been misleading the hard working
employees at CPBL to frighten them to believe that when Henry Canton leaves CPBL their jobs would be at risk. As reported by some members
of the CPBL staff they have, under duress, been made to sign correspondences addressed to the Office of the Prime Minister which are published
in the national newspapers. Now all the employees of CPBL are hereby being made aware that the same Dr. Henry Canton whose job they try to
save is crafting a plan that will result in the laying off of 165 of them plus additional management personnel.

As the majority shareholder, we cannot readily entertain such a proposal. Such a decision would have far reaching implications for many stake-
holders and this should not be a first option. There are numerous questionable happenings at CPBL that if properly managed and addressed would
not necessitate the contemplation of this sort of action. As we have been saying for a long time now, products are being undersold with Henry
Canton doing the selling, the efficiency of the processing plants were lagging for the past two years 2.3% and 2.9% below the testing labs only to
now magically show a 5% turnaround at the time of a Citrus Control Board sanctioned investigation, questionable investments into a feed mill that
saw only 30% of peel being processed this year at a time when feed prices were strong, a value added operation that saw sales double and losses
quadruple and a consistent deterioration in the performance of the groves. In the case of the two value-added investments supply is not the
problem, lack of markets remains the problem!

This is just another plan being hatched to try and wrestle the majority shareholding of the CGA membership in CPBL. The same Dr. Henry Canton
approached Government claiming a cash flow crisis that if CPBL did not get $10m by mid February it would have had to halt operations. Yet by
the first week of April without any assistance the cash flow crisis was magically solved. They backed off that plan because it was becoming
apparent that Henry Canton had to exit CPBL for GoB to assist and that was not an acceptable scenario to Banks - Barbados or Henry Canton.

We note that in the concept paper, which is grossly deficient by professional standards, reference is made to the citrus greening disease. The Belize
Citrus Mutual which is a private company, owned by Dr. Henry Canton and others, has lobbied Government and in effect prevented an industry
wide approach to tackling this disease. The BCM has refused to be a part of any national response if Government does not recognize their private
company as an association like the CGA. The members of the CGA since September 2009 have adopted resolution to support an industry wide
approach to combating HLB and the CGA continues to advocate at all levels with Government for this happen. It is URGENT!

Under Henry Canton's tenure over $65m dollars have been invested in expanding industry processing capacity while ignoring grove productivity,
although his private company has special contract to manage some of the CPBL's groves. His BCM claim that they control the majority of the
production in the industry and so the ailing production by logic lies solely with them. He masterminded the unconscionable investment agreement
that saw the growers give up 46.5% of CPBL and all decision making power for US$2.00 and as at the end of 2009/10 fiscal year all aspects of
CPBL were losing money despite a $26 million dollar increase in sales. Now, with the support of the Banks - Barbados appointed directors, who
are steadfastly entertaining him as the CEO of CPBL despite the company duly adopting a resolution that effectively fired him on December 17th
2010, he is now setting out to layoff the very same employees behind whom he often seeks refuge and knowing him will try to suggest that
somehow the CGA is responsible to the contrary, that the BFP facility is the more efficient of the two processing facilities.

We call on the Government of Belize to show leadership and work along with the CGA to take the steps necessary to protect the jobs of the
workers at CPBL, to safeguard the industry from the growing and potentially catastrophic effects of citrus greening, to ensure the future for the
citrus growers and to clean up the corruption that is killing this industry. Henry Canton we call on you to get out now! CPBL fired you and you are
nothing more than a common traitor to your fellow growers and now after having the employees standing up for you, you and your operatives are
secretly hatching a plan to terminate over 105 staff plus managers. Cancelling the fat contract with your private company ADS could save many
jobs at CPBL, your leaving would save even many more.

It's Here - The Start Of The 2011 Hurricane Season Has Come


SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo,
Thursday, June 2, 2011:
The start of the 2011 hurricane
season is now upon us. The
hurricane season in the Tropical
Atlantic officially runs from
June 1 to November 30 each
year.
Being on top of its game
always, the Cayo District
National Emergency Manage-
ment Organization (NEMO),
under the Chairmanship of
District Coordinator Alhenry
Westby, today, just the second
day into the 2011 season, held
its first meeting
Present for this Thursday
morning's NEMO meeting were
representatives from the various
subcommittees ofNEMO-Cayo.
Those in attendance inside San
Ignacio's Magistrate Courtroom
included representatives from
the Department of the Environ-
ment, the Police, National
Transport, Municipal Transport,
Ministry of Works, Ministry of
Health, National Fire Service,
Accountant General's Ministry,
National Youth Cadet Corp and
Youth For the Future among
others.
The group spent the entire
morning exchanging ideas and


strategizing as they prepare to
undertake the labor of caring
for the needs of the community
before, during and after a storm.
The team agreed that the
Magistrate Court has now
outgrown its usefulness as an
adequate Emergency Command
Center. In addressing this
concern it was reported


that the managing authority
responsible for the Cayo Center
of Employment Training
(CCET) has gracefully granted
approval for the CCET facilities
to be used as the new command
center. Westby informed that
with ample meeting, storage and
parking space along with
adequate bathroom facilities and
internet capabilities, the new
location will go a long ways
in improving the delivery of
emergency services.
Meteorologists are forecasting
a well above-average hurricane
season this year resulting from
favorable atmospheric and
oceanic conditions in the
tropical Atlantic. These
favorable conditions are
predicted to produce an above-
average probability of major
hurricane landfall in the

In the third game of the day
Bullet Tree FC defeated Santa
Elena's Santa Cruz by a score of
3 goals to 1 with one goal each


coming from Misael Gilharry,
Hilberto Pott and Byron Pott
while Kenroy Vasquez scored
Santa Cruz' only goal.
In the final game of the day
Unitedville Rockets and Cristo
Rey's Juventus Jr played to a
scoreless draw.
Rounding off the first 4
weeks of action, in group "A"
Adventures moves into the
qualifying round leading the


pack with 9 points followed
closely by Juventus Jr with 7
points. Both teams are moving
into the second round.
In Group "B" the Rockets
and the Stealth Bombers have
qualified to move into the
second round with 8 and 5 points
each, respectively.
Due to tardiness in joining the
competition, Gentle Touch and
Santa Cruz will be the only game
playing this Sunday, June 5.
It's going to be a do or die
game for Gentle touch as they
desperately need a victory to
qualify to enter into the next
round.
The results of the game makes
no difference for Santa Cruz as,
with 0 points thus far in the
completion, they have failed to
qualify for the next round.
The other teams not advancing
to the next stage are Bullet Tree
with 5 points and Swifters with
only 1 point.
It promises to be a heated
match this Sunday as Gentle
Touch seeks to clinch a spot in
the nex round of competition.
We encourage everyone to
come out and support these
emerging football stars.

Results Of The Primary School Examination 2011 With

Highest Score Going To Holy Redeemer Primary School


Aliyah Licia Enerme
Marin, 12
Results of the 2011 Primary
School Examination is out!!
The results show that, of the
almost seven thousand students
who sat the examinations this
year, Aliyah Marin from Holy
Redeemer Primary School in
Belize City, is the number 1
ranking student countrywide.
Aliyah Licia Enerme Marin,
12, is the second of three girls
born on July 29, 1998 to proud
parents Ervin and Marlene
Marin.
At age 3 she was enrolled
into Miss Ebanks Pre-School
and after graduating at age
5, she went straight into Holy
Redeemer Primary School.
Aliyah has always been a
smart child to the point where at
the beginning of the school year
in 2006, the school came to the
determination that she was much
too advanced for Standard 2 and
so she was promoted from
Standard 1 straight into Standard
3. She did not miss a beat. She
landed running in Standard 3.
Aliyah has always ranked first
in her class throughout her seven
years at Holy Redeemer Primary
School. She is currently in
Standard 6 Martin.
"Holy Redeemer has been
my second home since I was
five years old" said Aliyah, "It
will always hold a special place
in my heart. I am currently in
my last year of primary school
and anxiously awaiting my
graduation. At this stage of my
life, education is my first
priority. I am a very dedicated
and ambitious person and I
believe that those that aspire to
be great result in success and
as they say, [When you do well
people notice]".
Acknowledging that this
level of success does not come


easy, and that it certainly
requires tremendous hard work,
sacrifice, dedication and firm
commitment, we join the rest of
the nation in congratulating
Aliyah on her remarkable
achievement.
We also congratulate her
parents, Mr. Ervin and Mrs.
Marlene Marin for supporting
and guiding such a fine child.
We encourage you to keep up
the good work.
We also congratulate Aliyah's
two sisters, Thank you Ameera,
the eldest sister, for your quick
response to our request.
And now for the official
Ministry of Education and Youth
release on the results of the PSE

MINISTRY OF EDUCA-
TION, Belmopan, Friday,
June 3, 2011:
The Ministry of Education and
Youth hereby issues the official
results of the 2011 Primary School
Examination (PSE).
Student Population
A total of 6,962 students
(including private candidates
as well as those who attend al-
ternative schools) registered for
the PSE in 2011. Of this total
177 were absent for all parts of
the examination while 32 were
present for some parts but not
all.
Purpose and Intended Use
of the Primary School
Examination
The PSE assesses achievement
of curriculum content and skills
in the four (4) areas of English,
Mathematics, Social Studies
and Science of the National
Primary School Curriculum.
The examination is criterion-
referenced meaning that perfor-
mance of "each individual is
compared with a preset standard
for acceptable achievement...
The performance of other
examineesisirrelevant." In this
way, the examination seeks not
to rank students in comparison
to other students (as in norm-
referencing) but to report what
each student has achieved for
individual skills. This is
expressed as a percentage score.
The results of the examination
are intended to be used for two
main purposes:
1. Certification of Students at


LAliyah L. Marin Tops The Natio


the completion of primary
school in four content areas of
the primary curriculum; and
2. Educational decision-
making to inform policy,
planning and practice at
national, district, school and
classroom levels.
The PSE is not and was never
intended to be used as the
sole criteria for entrance into
secondary schools. Secondary
schools are advised to use
multiple sources of evidence of
students' achievement and
holistic development at primary
school to get a more complete
picture of the students' abilities,
strengths and weaknesses in
informing acceptance to and
placement in high schools.
While the Ministry of
Education will be recognizing
outstanding students who have
done well on the PSE, the
Ministry of Education cautions
that making judgments about
schools and teachers on the
basis of individual student
performances is inappropriate.
In the first instance, the

performance of one or a few
may not be reflective of the
many, and secondly schools are
not all the same. Therefore
making judgments of individual
schools' effectiveness on this
basis without considering inputs
(resources) available to
individual schools and without
considering background and
contextual factors (socio-
economic and family back-
grounds and communities in
which schools are located)
of each school is not only
inappropriate, but unfair.
Additionally, there is a tendency
to either praise or criticize the

on the performance of students
on the PSE. The Ministry of

Healthy And Ready To Learn


By: Andrea Ovard
SAN IGNACIO TOWN, Cayo,
Thursday, June 2, 2011:
A group of volunteers from
HELP International, a non-profit
organization, have teamed up
with Berta Morales, Richard
Zul and Anthony Morris in cre-
ating a square foot garden at Sa-
cred Heart College in San
Ignacio.
This garden will be part of the
program "Healthy and Ready to
Learn" which provides a


healthy meal for underprivileged
students. Students and teach-
ers involved in the program will
dedicate their time and energy
in helping the volunteers to
complete and maintain the
garden.
This project would not have
been possible without the
help and donations from the
Agriculture Department; Pine
LumberCompany; Mendoza

base. Rather it is the school as a
whole that is responsible for the
educational development of the
students, rather than individual
teachers alone. Therefore, the
school is to be viewed as a team
of teachers led by a principal
who is instructional as well as
administrative leader with the
management being responsible
for monitoring and providing
support. Schools, teachers and
managements should not use
resources (or lack thereof) or
background and contextual
factors of their students and
schools as justification to sit
back and not seek improvement.
There should be collective
responsibility and ownership to
always seek improvements in
quality.
In English, the mean score was
in the adequate range at 54.9
About 39% of the students
earned a grade C (Satisfactory
Level of Performance) or better
but of concern is that roughly
32% scored E's. Half the
number of students' scores were
below and half above the score
of 56 as indicated by the median
score.
In Math, the mean score of
47.16 was in the inadequate
range. The mode grade of E (0-
49) indicates that most students
scored in the inadequate range.
About 28% of students earned a
grade C (Satisfactory Level of
Performance) or better. Half the
number of students were above
and half below the median score
of 45.
In Social Studies, the mean
score was 63.85 in the satisfac-
tory band while the mode grade
of C (60-69) indicates that most
students were in the satisfactory
range. Sixty-six (66%) of stu-
dents earned a grade C (Satis-
factory Level of Performance) or
better. The median score of 66
indicates that half the students
were above and half below this
score.
In Science, the mean score of
64.38 was in the satisfactory
band. The mode grade of C (60-
69) indicates that most students
scored at the satisfactory level.
Sixty-seven (67%) percent of
the students earned a grade C
(Satisfactory Level of Perfor-
mance) or better. Half the
students scored above 66 and
half below as indicated by the
median score.


USING THE
EXAMINATION RESULTS
TO IMPROVE TEACHING
AND LEARNING:
WHAT IS TO BE DONE
The results show that national
mean performance by subject on
PSE has remained more or less
stable over the last eleven years
with slight upward trend in each
subject. It is important to note
however, that means or averages
do not necessarily give the most
complete picture of perfor-
mance. It is therefore important
to note how our students are
distributed across the various
grade ranges bands which
appear below in this release.
Overall results on the PSE
2011 show a dip in all areas
tested. While there seems to
have been an overall upward
trend over the years there have
been fluctuations in the results
from year to year. It is difficult
to say with certainty that this
year's decline is not due to the
normal variability from year to
year. That said, the results this
year give cause for concern,
particularly in the areas of
English and Mathematics.

It is important to note that
the emphasis here is and will
not be to blame, point
fingers, or attempt to shame
teachers and schools.
Pointing fingers or blaming
does no good if we are to
improve. Rather the emphasis
must be on how we can improve
teaching and learning in our
schools. The improvement of
teaching and learning in
classrooms is not merely a
matter for teachers but for
principals and managements as
well. All concerned-teachers,
principals, parents, manage-
ments and the Ministry of
Education and Youth-must
take ownership for the quality of
education in our schools. The
Ministry of Education is
currently piloting a Quality
Schools Framework and
accompanying process at which
ownership for the quality of
education services delivered is
a central principle. Therefore,
while the Ministry of Education
will take the lead in this
endeavor, it is also the responsi-
bility of the managements and
individual schools to analyze
their own school results to

United Party granted amnesty to
the people from El Salvador and
established the Valley of Peace
in the 1980's without consulting
the Belizean people that was a
major mistake. This move on his
part made many Belizeans
angry because these people
were just given lands. While,
many native Belizean citizens
have been applying for lots and
lands and have not gotten any
up to this day.
The ethnic demographic of
the country began to change
between the African Belizeans
and the Hispanic Belizeans.
Today, the recent census has
revealed that there are more

as collateral to accumulate
wealth.
If we do not deal with this
issue now, more people are
going to be squatting in the
future and that could lead to
some violent confrontations.
In the last two weeks there has
been mass protest that are
planned and orchestrated by the
opposition party.
These protest will not solve
any problem because the bus
and the squatting problems were
there when the People's United
Party was in government and
they did not solve it.
With the bus situation, I
believe in a free enterprise
market and I would allow the
buses to operate freely anywhere
they choose to operate with their
license. The people will have the
right to choose what buses they
want to ride and those who are
too expensive, cannot cope and
not providing quality service
would be forced out of the
business. On a given day there
are only a certain number of
people commuters anyway.
Regulating the bus routes, will
be a major problem for any
government be it PUP, UDP,
VIP, PNP or RIP.
Economics teaches a good
lesson that we should avoid a
monopoly which we had when
only a few families controlled
the bus industries in Belize.
A reasonable fare, punctuality,
clean, safe and reaching the end
of their destinations is what most
passengers want.
Solving the lot and land issue
will be good for the party in
government because a Belizean
citizen will never forget the
party that gave them a lot or a
land even when they migrate to
the United States.

"Duke!" the dad yelled.
"This is great!" the Johnnie

A friendly trucker stops to see
if he can help and the Mexicans
ask him for a ride.
He tells them he has no room

The Mexicans put it to the
driver that if they can manage
to fit into the back with their

Robbery Suspect Escapes From Courtroom


and made off with $300 cash
from the drawer. The store
owner, Bing Hui Zhu, 31,
Belizean/Chinese businessman
told the police that the suspect,
described as a Hispanic male
person, wearing a three-quarter
blue jeans pants and a red shirt,
entered the store with a machete
and made off with the money.
Bing told the police that he fired
four shots at the fleeing robber
who, apparently unharmed,
disappeared around the curve
and out of sight.
At around 5:00 p.m. on
Tuesday, May 31, police
received information that the
suspect was going about his
merry way playing basketball
on the Falcon Field basketball
court located on Joseph
Andrew's Drive in San Ignacio.
Within minutes of receiving the
information, a team of police-
men descended upon him. He
was captured, detained and
transported to the San Ignacio
police station where he was
formally arrested and charged
for aggravated assault with
a machete committed against

$300 from Bing Hui Zhu.
He spent the night inside the
police lock up . He was one of
the first to be brought up to
court on Wednesday, June 1, to
answer to the two charges.
The handcuffs were removed
from his hands just before he
was marched into the courtroom.
He was inside the courtroom
awaiting his turn to face the
music when the Magistrate
summoned the single court
orderly to his desk. The suspect
saw the opening and the
opportunity to escape and so did
he. He bolted out of the
courtroom, down the stairs,
across the police parking lot, in
front of the Town Hall and just
like he did on April 13, he
disappeared around the curve
and has not been seen since.
A warrant in the first instance for
the arrest of Mark Burrowes has
been prepared and awaits him at
the San Ignacio police station
along with the initial charges of
robbery and aggravated assault.
Police is requesting the public's
assistance in recapturing this
fugitive of the law.
