San Ignacio police reports that on Saturday, March 31, Belizean teacher, Ramon Vargas 43, reported that his house, located in the Hillview area of Santa Elena Town, was burglarized and that over 11 thousand dollars in electronic items, jewelry and cash were stolen therefrom. Vargas informed that he secured and left his house at around 6 o’clock that Saturday morning and proceeded to the market in San Ignacio to conduct his trading business. About two hours later, at around 8 o’clock, he instructed his worker, Bernardo Matute to return to his house to pick up other merchandize to be sold at the market. Upon arriving at the house in Hillview, Matute reportedly observed that it was broken into. He immediately conveyed the information, via telephone, to Vargas who rushed to the scene where he encountered the screened double door open and the panel of the front door removed with the door slightly open. Vargas entered the house, a brown bungalow 24 by 48 feet cement structure, where he observed that several items were missing from inside his house including US dollars in various denominations valued at $2,500; 800 Belize dollars in cash, an Apple Mac Book brand computer valued at $2,300; a black Sony Vio brand laptop The accused, Harvey Trapp, 20 Please Turn To Page 2Retired Educator HonoredTeacher Louise Bridget Lewis (c) Governor General Sir Colville Young (r) Page 15 The 12 Bullets, The Magazine And The GunTwo Boys Busted With Gun And Bullets Sent To Jail Please Turn To Page 15 STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*S TAR* *STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR8*8TAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR*STAR* No. 151 SUNDAY, MAY 11, 2008 Price $1.00 No. 305 Sunday, April 22, 2012 Price $1.00Harvey Trapp (16).JPG

After reviewing all four surveillance cameras, Vargas noted that one of them, with the front of the house in view, captured the image of a creole decent, slim built, male person with long hair tied in a pony tail, prying off the panel of the front door with a crow bar. A second camera, located inside the house, revealed the image of the same male person taking possession of Vargas’ property. Upon making the report to the police, Vargas provided the video footage to assist in the investigation. The intruder was identified as Harvey Trapp a resident of the area. An instant search began for Trapp. The search ended 17 days later when, on Tuesday, April 17, a team of policemen, including Commanding Officer, Alvan Gentle was on the Western Highway in the police vehicle when they sighted the suspect standing at the junction of the highway and the road leading into Hillview. The suspect was instantly detained and transported to the police station in San Ignacio where he was positively identified as Harvey Trapp, 20, Belizean laborer of a Lipton Street address in Hillview. He reportedly gave a cautioned statement, witnessed by a Justice of the Peace, in which he allegedly admitted to committing the crime. Trapp was consequently arrested and formally charged for burglary. He appeared in court on Wednesday, April 18 where the charge was read to him by Magistrate Linsbert Willis The accused pled guilty to the charge while alleging that he gave the cautioned statement under duress. The initial guilty plea was therefore set aside. The accused was consequently offered and met bail in the sum of five thousand dollars and ordered to return to court on Wednesday, July 18, 2012. Arrested Burglar Caught On Camera From Front Page After more than 12 years in the business, the time has now come for new, young and fresh blood to be injected into the STAR Newspaper. It is in this light that the reigns are being passed on to my son, Albert Nigel August, who after several years of coaching has come of age and has demonstrated both the willingness and the ability to shoulder the responsibility of putting together a product that readers and advertisers alike look forward to getting each week. Notwithstanding this change, the wife, Nyani will continue to be the foundation of the STAR as Albert Nigel steps in to fill the void. He has, over the past weeks, been introduced to the major stakeholders in the business and is now ready to truly demonstrate his capabilities. While the transision has been in the making for several months, the departure could not come about in the absence of an unshakable understading of the purpose of the STAR within the community combined with the firm commitment of none diviation from that purpose. The change also includes the relocation of the office to the Hoffman Complex, Apartment #5 on the Western Highway, across from Tropigas Store, in Santa Elena. The email address and telephone numbers remain unchanged. The Son Steps InShould Gentle Go ... Should Gentle Stay While the decision to transfer or not to transfer Supt. Alvan Gentle, the current Officer Commanding the Cayo (Police) District, legally rests on the shoulders of the Public Services Commission, he has, over the past several weeks, come under heavy fire for some of the controversial and unilateral actions he has taken in the course of performing his duties. One of the areas of most heat is his refusal to acknowledge and consult with elected national and municipal leaders as he remains of the firm belief that politicians have no business in policing. His recent actions to enforce the law as it pertains to the closing down of business places on Sundays created quite a stir within the community. This operation was conducted on a single occasion causing the heat to reach a boiling point resulting in it being instantly discontinued. There is no denying that, since taking over command in mid January this year, there has been a tangible decrease in major crimes as the community, prior to his arrival, was experiencing at least one home invasion every week and in some instances as many as two or three such incidents. This serious crime ultimately resulted in the December 23, 2011 murder of Sylvan Roberts, a popular Supt. Alvan Gentle OC Cayo (Police) District medical professional, while inside that which should have been the safety of his home. A firm believer in the “Broken Window” theory of policing, Gentle has been consistent, like the northern star, in relentlessly attacking small crimes which he believes, if left unchecked, will inevitably evolve into bigger crimes. He has vigorously attacked public drinking. He has effectively deployed the personnel under his command to close down restaurants and bars that have traditionally and repeatedly violated the nocturnal closing time, a feat that seemed almost impossible for previous commanding officers. He has taken effective action against the washing of vehicles in the Macal River. He has likewise showed very little tolerance towards irregular police behavior. Gone are the days, it seems, when policemen would corruptly lose case files or sit, for a fee of course, on commitment warrants and other court issued orders. If only he could come to grips and consult with local political leaders and curtail the perception of negatively affecting local commerce, Gentle has the potential of becoming one of the best commanding officers this community has ever seen since the days of Sgt. Orio and Inspector Carmen Zetina as we fondly recall in Orio’s days when none were the persons who could sit on the back rest of the chairs in the Columbus Park and place their dirty shoes on the seat. The return to a disciplined way of life is what the community needs. Gentle has surely demonstrated the potentials to restore discipline within the community.

Buddy picked something up off of the ground and started to put it in his mouth. Granny took the item away from him and told him not to do that. “Why?” asked Buddy. "Because it's been on the ground; you don't know where it's been, it's dirty, and probably has germs," replied Granny Brown. At this point, Buddy looked at his granny with total admiration and asked, "Grandma, how do you know all this stuff? You are so Benny The Lazy Horse A tourist, on his way to the Mountain Pine Ridge accidentally drove his car off the slippery road and into a ditch. Luckily a farmer happened to be passing by on his big horse named Benny. The toursit asked the farmer for help indicating that the horse could pull his car out. The farmer backed Benny up and hitched him to the back bumper. Then he yelled, “pull Nellie, pull!” Benny didn’t move. Then he yelled, “Come on Roger pull!” Still, Benny didn’t move. Then he yelled Really loud: “Now, pull Fred... pull hard!” Benny just stood there. The farmer then unexcitedly said: “ok Benny..... you can pull now.” Benny pulled the car out of the ditch. The tourist was very appreciative but curious. He asked the farmer why he called his horse by the wrong name three times. The farmer said, "Oh, Benny smart." "All Grandmas know stuff. It's on the Grandma Test’ responded Granny Brown. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Grandma." They walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but Buddy was evidently pondering this new information. "Oh....I get it!” he beamed, So if you don't pass the test you have to be the Grandpa". “Exactly,” replied Granny Brown with a big smile on her face.

It is a new title in the Belize Collection The book starts with the myth about Peter Wallace widely believed to have been the first British settler, which is shown to be false. It explores the economic system established by the first settlers in the late 17th century that was almost exclusively centred on the export of logwood. This logwood economy operated outside the British imperial system until the Treaty of Paris in 1763, when Belize became a British settlement. In the next century the economy became more diversified through both the export of mahogany as well as the entrepot trade with Central America. When Belize became a British colony in 1862, it coincided with the decline of the entrepot trade and a crisis in the world mahogany industry. This led to an attempt by the British authorities to introduce agricultural exports. The Belize Botanic Station was founded in 1892 to promote economic diversification and agricultural exports, which tried various ways to end the colony’s total dependence on forestry. However, these efforts were insufficient and the economy went into serious decline before devaluation at the end of 1949. The BookThe Economic History Of Belize By the time of independence in 1981, the economy had become much more diversified, but Belize’s position still compared unfavourably with the rest of the Caribbean. The performance of the economy since independence has been very volatile with periods of boom followed by slumps leading to high unemployment and a deterioration in income distribution. The reasons for this are examined in detail, while the authors conclude with a series of policy recommendations designed to improve Belize’s longrun economic performance. About the authors Victor Bulmer-Thomas is British and studied at Oxford University, where he received a BA, MA and Ph.D. He is Emeritus Professor of Economics at London University and Honorary Research Fellow in the Institute for the Study of the Americas. From 2001-6 he was Director of Chatham House (the Royal Institute of International Affairs) where he is currently an Associate Fellow in the Americas Programme, and from 1992-8 he was Director of the Institute of Latin American Studies at London University. From 1986-1997 he was editor of the Journal of Latin American Studies. His publications include The Economic History of the Caribbean from the Napoleonic Wars (2012) ; The Economic History of Latin America since Independence (2003); and The Political Economy of Central America since 1920 (1987). He was a V.S.O. teacher at St. Michael’s College, Belize City, in 1966-67 and has been a frequent visitor to the country subsequently. He has been married to Barbara since 1970. Barbara Bulmer-Thomas was born at the Melinda Agricultural Station in the Stann Creek District. She spent her early years growing up in various parts of Belize (then British Honduras) where she was always in close touch with the magnificent Belize forests that proved an early and enduring interest. She attended the Belize Technical College in the late 1950s and then travelled to the UK to pursue her education. After a first degree from the Open University she studied Microbiology at London University and later obtained an MSc in Plant Taxonomy from the University of Reading.
