As we sit here this Thursday night writing this article; relatives and friends are gathered, in a temporary blackout, at the family residence at bottom end of 18th Street in San Ignacio attending a wake that never should have been as they mourn the passing of this model citizen in preparation to lay her to rest inside the Santa Rita Cemetery in San Ignacio Town on Friday, October 4, after funeral services at the San Ignacio Nazarene Church. The postmortem examination conducted on the body of Suzenne Martinez, at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital in Belize City, by Police Forensic Specialist Dr. Mario Estradabran on Thursday, October 4, 2012, certified the cause of death as asphyxia due to strangulation. The examination report made no mention of the presence or absence of forensic evidence of sexual assault. We join the community in the understandable expression of anger that has exposed the vulnerability of all of us as beasts continue to freely roam our streets at the ready to pounce upon us. In an attempt of put the pieces together, we draw on the various pieces of information reaching us up to press time as follows: In keeping with the routine on schools days, Suzenne left home at around 6:30 on the morning of Tuesday, October 2, 2012 and boarded the University of Belize School bus enroute to the University in Belmopan where she was in the medical laboratory technician Bachelor’s degree program slated for graduation in January 2013. She had a late lunch with friends in Belmopan and, according to the statement of a female student friend who was with her, after classes she walked to the bus terminal in Belmopan with intent to board the express bus to San Ignacio, while waiting for the express, an almost empty regular bus arrived at the terminal and judging by the small number of passengers on board they surmised that the trip back home would not be long and so they boarded the D&E bus for the ride home. She was reportedly let off the bus, at 7:20pm, on Benque Viejo Road in San Ignacio at the junction with the top of 18th Street where, she routinely walked, in a straight line of about 450 yards, to her home at the bottom end of 18th Street. What happened after she got off the bus, only the beast in our midst can say. Investigators strongly suspect that the beast might have been a passenger on the bus Suzenne and her friend was riding and that he might have been casing her along the route, disembarking behind her and proceeded to attack her from behind, gagged and strangled her to death, a few yards up 18th Street in the area of an empty overgrown house lot, with occupied houses on both sides and across the street. Police suspect that the motive of the crime was robbery. Police received the first call at around 6:30 on Wednesday morning, October 3, of the presence of a female body in the grass inside an earthen drain on the edge of 18th Street. Police immediately rushed to the scene where they encountered the body, with the blouse pulled up, the pants down, underwear in place, school book and calculator on the body and a pair of tennis shoe under the body. The police also observed the print of a shoe sole on the right leg. Shortly after the police arrival, the brother Jamid Martinez on his way to work, came upon the gathering on the scene and after facing difficulties from the police, was eventually allowed to view the body which he instantly identified as being that of his sister. The scene was processed and the body was transported to the San Ignacio Community Hospital where it was officially pronounced dead by the medical officer on duty. The family became concerned when Suzenne did not return at the usual time on Tuesday night. When it became evident that something was not quite right, they began calling her cellular phone and eventually visited the police station to file a missing person report. Due to the complexity of the issue at hand, all we will say about the calls is that the family’s insistence paid off leading the police to the residence of the detainee’s sister, located at #18 Macal Street in San Ignacio where they inquired about Ical’s presence and were told that he was not there. Notwithstanding the response, the police entered the house where they found Ical, in a fetal position, hiding behind a curtain, stretched on a string across the doorway of a waist high cabinet. Ical was immediately detained, searched and found in possession of a Digicel, Blackberry brand, cellular telephone, a Samsung brand cellular telephone, a SIM card, two thin gold chains, a cross shaped gold medal and two bracelets. While the laptop she carried every day to school is yet to be recovered, the Blackberry cellular telephone, found in Ical’s possession, was positively identified as being the property of Suzenne Martinez. Furthermore, the Samsung phone, the SIM card and the jewelry, are suspected to be the property of retiree Belizean American, Robert Steven Lewis 53, who was killed when the residence he shares with his wife, Ursula Patnett Lewis was invaded at around 1:30 am on Monday, October 1. When the police arrived on the scene they found Robert Lewis, face down in a pool of blood inside the movie room of his house located in the Maya Mopan Community in Belmopan which incidentally is the home community of the detainee Pedro Alberto Ical. Lewis was found with cut wounds to the neck, chest and arm. A review of the SIM card, found in Ical’s possession revealed contacts connected to the deceased, Robert Steven Lewis. While San Ignacio Police continue to gather information and evidence in the Suzenne Martinez murder case, Belmopan police is doing likewise in an effort to determine the possibility of Ical’s connection or involvement in the October 1, murder of Robert Steven Lewis. Suzenne Martinez is survived by her mother Lily Martinez ; father Hamid Martinez ; brother, Jamid Martinez aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends. We join the community in the expression of condolences to the family, other relatives and friends during these extremely difficult times. We likewise pray for the eternal resting of the soul of Suzenne “Purple” Martinez. Latest reports reaching us indicate that a more indept forensic report could very well disclose the presence of the semen on the body, suggesting some form of sexual contact. We were also informed that the detainee, Pedro Ical could be initially facing a lesser charge of handling stolen goods as a holding charge while the murder investigation continues.“The Newspaper that cares and dares to bring out the truth”Publisher: Nyani K.

The conference convened Ministers of Health to analyze health policies in the region. Main objectives of the meeting included the exchange of information related to the prevention, preservation and promotion of health. One of the main highlights of the meeting was the election of the next Director of PAHO. Dr. Carissa Etienne was elected as the 10th Director of PAHO at the conference. The Minister of Health, Hon. Pablo Marin congratulates the Director on her new post and he comitted to continue partnership to improve health in the Region. The Pan American Sanitary Conference is the supreme governing authority of PAHO. Ministers Of Health At PAHO Sanitary Conference The Mental Health Program of the Ministry of Health commemorated World Suicide Prevention Day last month by encouraging people to light a candle near a window at 8 pm to observe the day. The theme of World Suicide Prevention Day this year was “Suicide Prevention across the Globe: Strengthening Protective Factors and Instilling Hope.” The Ministry emphasizes that suicide is a major preventable, mental health problem. While some people turn to suicide to cope with problems, it is important to know that suicide and suicidal thoughts are not solutions or healthy responses to stress. Lighting a candle near a window offers people who cannot participate in a World Suicide Prevention Day event the opportunity to show support for suicide prevention, to remember a loved one lost through suicide or the survivors of suicide attempts to observe the day in a private and personal way. The Minister of Health, Hon. Pablo Marin encourages the public to talk about mental health and help in the fight against the stigma and discrimination that is often linked to mental illness. Together we continue in the promotion of Mental health and the prevention of Mental Illness. The Ministry of Health joins the Caribbean Community in celebrating Caribbean Wellness Day. Belize celebrated Caribbean Wellness Week during the last week of September. The focus was on promoting “Healthy Workplaces and Schools” under the theme: “ Healthy Children, Healthy Schools.” The Ministry and the health regions across the country held activities for their staff during the week such as staff clinics, sporting competitions, exercise classes and dance lessons among others. Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital had a bike ride on Monday October 1st from KHMH to Haulover Bridge and back to KHMH. The Western Regional Hospital had a health fair in Las Flores, Belmopan. Activities in other regions across the country included health fairs and health sessions in the hospitals and also in the communities they serve. The Ministry invited schools, private organizations, Government Offices and other Non-Governmental Organizations to participate in weliness activities during that week. Caribbean Wellness Day was declared as a commemoration of a CARICOM landmark summit and is celebrated on the second Saturday in September each year. Staff Clinic At Western Regional Hospital The Epidemiology Unit of the Ministry of Health scheduled Influenza Laboratory and Surveillance Trainings from the 25th to 28th September for Senior Laboratory Technicians, Doctors and Nurses for all health regions across the country. The main objective of the training is to build capacity and strengthen influenza surveillance in Belize and the Central American regio. Specific objectives of the Influenza Surveillance include monitoring of known Influenza viruses and the detection of new viruses. Influenza Laboratory and Surveillance Training for Western Region Training sessions for Influenza Surveillance started this past Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 at the George Price Center in Belmopan. Approximately twenty four Emergency Nurses, Lab Technicians, Pediatricians and Medical officers participated from the Western Regional Hospital and the San Ignacio Community Hospital.

It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy. Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits. You can now help a friend in need by letting him/ her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy. How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations? As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes. You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc... It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors. This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders. The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that: It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas. The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells. And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells. Lemon Kills Cancer Cells We AMS To Please

The man picked up the bottle, pulled the cork and out popped a Genie. "Master, Master you have released me from my bondage in this bottle, ask any three wishes and I shall grant them to you." The marshall thinks for a moment and said, "I would like the following three things to happen: #1. I want for the stigma of corruption to disappear from my Party. #2. I want the Belizean people to forget that it was my party that created the superbond for which we have absolutely nothing to show and #3. I want my party to achieve land slide victories in the upcoming village, municipal and general elections.” The Genie thought about this for a moment and jumped back into the bottle. A man with a wooden eye was sitting at the bar inside the Blue Angels Night Club. He scans the bar and sees a very attractive woman sitting at the far corner of the bar to his right. She had but one flaw, a very large nose. The man was very self concious about his wooden eye. Notwithstanding he garnered the nerve to ask her for a dance. "Would you like to dance with me?" he asked. She replied "Would I!", He sneered and told her, "Go To hell, BIG NOSE!"

"But I'm not getting married until tomorrow Dad, protested the groom. "I know son," replied the father. "That's exactly what I mean." The Happiest Day Of Your Life After the last two mishaps in outer space NASA decided to, this time, dispatch an experimental shuttle with two monkeys and an astronaut. They trained them for several months. Then when they were fully trained and ready, all three were placed in the shuttle and ready to be sent into space. As the moment came closer NASA's mission control center announced, "This is mission control to Monkey One. Initiate!" At that the first monkey started typing like mad and suddenly the shuttle's engines ignited and the shuttle took off. Two hours later NASA's mission control center announced, "This is mission control to Monkey Two. Initiate!" At that the second monkey started typing like mad and suddenly the shuttle separated from the empty fuel tanks. Another two hours later mission control announced, "This is mission control to the astronaut..." At this the astronaut responded "I know, I know. Feed the monkeys and don't touch anything."

Our sympathies are with their parents and relatives as they seek, like we do, to ponder the senseless tragedies that have been inflicted upon our communities and the nation. In recent years, the vulnerabilities of our youth have become increasingly evident in the violence that has become a marked feature of our lives. Suzenne and Norval were shining lights, excellent students, and in the full blush of youth. However, they did not escape the dilemma that confronts us all – how to rebuild a sense of the beloved community within which we could nurture ourselves and each other. We must recognize that the violence which took them from us is an expression of the social breakdown that must be overcome if we are to offer our youth a chance of leading lives that provides a sense of accomplishment and fulfilment. As we mourn the loss of Suzenne and Norval and share the grief of their families and friends, we should call to mind the very moving tribute to love and loss penned by the Guyanese poet, Martin Carter:MY HAND IN YOUR As in sleep, my hand in yours, yoursin mine. Your voice in my hearing and memory, like the sound of stars as they shine, not content with light only. My fingertips walk on your face gently. They tiptoe as a dream does away from sleep into waking. In a tree somewhere a bird calls out. And I wake up my hand still in yours, in the midst of the sounds of stars and a far bird. (Martin Carter, 1972) On behalf of the entire UB community, I extend our heartfelt sympathies to their families and friends as we all mourn the departure of two very promising souls. May they rest in peace. Message from the President – Tribute to Murdered StudentsSuzenne Martinez of San Ignacio Norval Belisle, Jr of Belmopan

However, it CAN be successfully treated. By 2020, depression will be the second leading cause of world disability (wi-co. 2001) and by 2030: it is expected to be the largest contributor to disease burden (WHO. 2008 ) Depression is a significant contributor to the global burden of disease and has no ethnic, racial, geographic and/or socioeconomic bias. There is a significant economic issue related to depression because of loss of the ability to perform normal activities. Depression, if untreated, can lead to danger to self and others, and, potentially, suicide. It is important to differentiate between normal sadness and clinical depression. Everyone is sad at one time or another but true depression is a clinical issue. It is not the fault of the person experiencing depression and no one should be embarrassed or ashamed to have depression. It is not a sign of personal weakness. It is, however, extremely important to seek help. Without intervention, symptoms can last for weeks, months, or years. It is a disorder that prevents people from conducting normal lives, such as maintaining a job, attending school, and performing other normal functions. Individuals with depression appear to have a loss of interest in activities they would normally enjoy and other health issues may arise. They tend to have decreased energy, problems sleeping and/or eating, and feelings of low self-esteem. Across the globe, depression imposes a significant economic burden, not just on individuals with the disorder, but also on their families, communities, employers, health care systems and general government budgets. There is also strong evidence from studies in a number of high-income countries that, if untreated, depression in childhood and youth can have profound longstanding social and economic consequences in adulthood. The economic downturn that began in 2000 substantially increased the number of people experiencing depression around the world, as well as a decrease in mental health services due to budget cuts. In her Foreword to the WHO booklet Impact of 20th Annual World Mental Health Day Global Awareness Campaign To Highlight 20th Annual World Mental Health Day Global Awareness Campaign To Highlight 20th Annual World Mental Health Day Global Awareness Campaign To Highlight 20th Annual World Mental Health Day Global Awareness Campaign To Highlight 20th Annual World Mental Health Day Global Awareness Campaign To Highlight Need For More Attention To Depression, A Growing International Crisis Need For More Attention To Depression, A Growing International Crisis Need For More Attention To Depression, A Growing International Crisis Need For More Attention To Depression, A Growing International Crisis Need For More Attention To Depression, A Growing International Crisis economic crises on mental health (201 l) the WHO regional director for Europe, Zsuzsanna Jakab notes that the present economic crisis has led to significant declines in economic activity, a rise in unemployment, depressed housing markets and increased number of people living in poverty. Severe cuts in public spending have resulted from this and many countries are facing an era of austerity in heafth and welfare services. Individual family members and friends can be of enormous help to a person dealing with depression. This WMHDay packet includes a fact sheet advising individuals of ways one can help. There are dso mental health organizations, familysupport groups, advocacy groups and individual mental health professionals standing ready to help those individuals in need. WFMH calls on the media to educate the general public on this important issue and the fact that treatment is available. The World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) estabished World Mental Health Day in 1992; it is the only annual global awareness campaign to focus attention on specific aspects of mental health and mental disorders. and is now commemorated in over 9O countries on October 10th through local, regional and national World Mental Health Day commemorative events and programs. Belize joins the world federation for Mental Health and the rest of the World in celebrating World Mental Health Day on the 10th of October. The theme chosen for this the 20th year of celebration is DEPRESSION We must enlighten our community that Depression is a global problem and our population has not been spared. The treatment and care is available here and services are offered in all our districts at hospitals and polyclinics. Treatment is free and the possibility of recovery is good. In the Cayo district, the Belmopan Hospital, The San Ignacio and Benque Viejo polyclinics all offer services. CARACAS, Venezuela, Friday, October 5, 2012 The two candidates in Venezuela’s presidential election have addressed huge crowds on the final day of campaigning ahead of Sunday’s vote. President Hugo Chavez told tens of thousands of his supporters in Caracas that he needs a third term to consolidate social reforms. Opposition candidate Henrique Capriles promises to boost economic growth and govern for all Venezuelans. Nearly 19 million Venezuelans can vote in the tightly contested race. President Chavez’s supporters, dressed predominantly in red, filled the main avenues of the capital, Caracas, from the early hours of Friday. “Due to the circumstances I must be brief,” he said as be began his speech under heavy rain. Chavez, who has been in power since 1999, told them he needs another term to tackle poverty and inequality in the oil-rich South American country. “In all these years, we managed to save the country and have built the foundations for the future,” he said. “In six years’ time, we will be the first on health and education.
