The case against Danny Sagastume 19, Belizean labourer of a Santiago Juan Layout area in San Ignacio, and a rather frightening incarceration experience for his 67 year old grandmother, began on Tuesday, November 6, when Adolfo Ventura 47, Guatemalan, taxi driver from the neighbouring Bullet Tree Falls Village reported to San Ignacio Police that his house was burglarized. In a statement to the police Ventura informed that someone entered his house as a trespasser and made off with four pieces of electronics as follows: A $420 black AC/DC inverter; a grey Samsung brand DVD player valued at $200; a black Olympus brand digital camera valued at $150 and a black Rayo brand 20 inch TV set valued at $125 all for a total value of $895. While there was no visible sign of forced entry into the house, except an unlocked front door, the victim told the police that the door was locked from the inside and that he suspects that the culprit shook it until the bolt withdrew from the staple eventually causing it to open. The complainant further told the police that he strongly suspected Danny Sagastume a resident of the Santiago Juan Layout area in San Ignacio, to be the person who unlawfully entered his house.

While conducting the search, police also came upon three grams of marijuana on a window sill inside the house. With Sagastume being no stranger to San Ignacio police, CIB officers seized the opportunity to conduct a thorough search of the premises and this was when they came upon a shot gun, along with a grey plastic bag containing 6 cartridges, jammed under the corrugated zinc roofing inside an outhouse (latrine) in the yard. Upon close inspection, the gun was found to be a 16 gauge single action Winchester brand shotgun bearing serial number 21VS with six cartridges of the same calibre. The investigation revealed that the shotgun is registered in the name of a female resident from Bullet Tree Falls Village and that it was reported stolen, by the legal owner, about two weeks earlier. The grandmother and grandson were detained and transported to the police station in San Ignacio where they were later arrested and jointly charged for illegal firearm and ammunition possession while the grandson was additionally charged for handling stolen goods and drug possession.

The youth pled guilty to both charges thereby effectively avoiding the automatic further incarceration of the grandmother. The grandson was consequently sentenced to double five concurrent years imprisonment for a total of five years jail time. He pled not guilty to handling stolen goods and the drug possession charges for which he was offered an “irrelevant $3,000 bail” The case was adjourned until Wednesday, January 2, 2013. “An Irrelevant $3,000 bail” we say, as, even if he meets the bail, he has nowhere to go for the next five years. Interestingly, the grandmother was never charged for handling stolen goods or drug possession.

You will find that this area of your life is going well. Shower your partner with affection. You honey's ego needs to be stroked. However, don't spoil him or her to the point that your mate becomes self-centered and ends up disregarding all of your wants and needs. Lucky numbers: 30, 53, 78. TAURUS: April 21 to May 21 Your sensitive, sensual side is being drawn out. You may feel like your romantic side is on display. You are like a dancer onstage, and you accept this role with pleasure! There's a great combination of energies at work letting you become more realistic about love and approach it with dramatic flair and courage. Be more expressive when it comes to your needs and desires. Lucky numbers: 06, 24, 66. GEMINI: May 22 to June 21 Come out of your shell and be proud of your sensitive side. Although you may feel vulnerable when it comes to love and romance, this doesn't mean that you have to hide it. You may think that everyone else has it together in this department, but don't be fooled. They are just as insecure as you are! Go ahead and let this side of your personality shine. Admitting your vulnerability is wonderfully attractive. Lucky numbers: 35, 71, 97. CANCER: June 22 to July 23 You shouldn't have any problem getting your way in most areas of life. The time is ripe for you to take the lead. Unfortunately, there may be one important part of your life that isn't going exactly to plan, and this is love and romance. It is likely that you will run into a tremendously stubborn attitude that you can't seem to break through. It could be your own. Lucky numbers: 18, 49, 83. Your Weekly Horoscope and Lucky Numbers LEO: July 24 to August 21 Have fun with loved ones. Put your worries aside. Don't think of the possible negative consequences of having a good time. Focus on the fun and excitement of the moment. You have the ability to create fantastically strong bonds between you and your romantic partner. Love is in your favor, so act with confidence. There is no reason to feel bad or insecure in any way. Hold your head high. Lucky numbers: 04, 57, 91. VIRGO: August 22 to September 21 You are the secret jewel. You are apt to be extremely loving and devoted to those who recognize this in you. There is no reason to shrink back and hide. Put on your royal air and flaunt your stuff. Your peaceful, charming nature shines through, and you radiate the god-like qualities you have within. Whoever shares your company tonight is extremely lucky. Make sure this person is worthy of you. Lucky numbers: 10, 32, 64. LIBRA: September 22 to October 23 You may feel locked in a bind of deep emotion and stubborn attitudes with close friends or lovers. Perhaps it's hard for you to say what you really feel. You may be under the impression that you are being tested and judged by everyone else. Try not to let your ego get in the way of a good time. Say what you feel without getting worried about how others will react. Lucky numbers: 15, 39, 44. SCORPIO: October 24 to November 21 Your spirit sparkles. You may feel filled with tremendous energy as you go about your week. Your sense of adventure is high, and there is very little that gets you down. One area that might be difficult to deal with right now is love and romance. You may feel like this is the one domain in which things aren't going the way you'd like them to. Patience is the secret. Lucky numbers: 12, 75, 96. SAGITTARIUS: November 22 to December 21 You may feel yourself slipping into a deeper understanding with a close friend or loved one. Romantic situations are heating up, and you are slowly letting your inhibitions fade away so they're completely absent. You realize the exuberance and excitement that come when you come out of hiding and let your playful spirit charm the world. Put serious subjects aside and make time to have fun and be more social. Lucky numbers:22, 61, 85. CAPRICORN: December 22 to January 20 Most of the time it's good to have strong opinions and be independent and willful. But there are other times when this attitude turns people away you are hoping to draw closer. There is a stubborn yet sensitive attitude in your world of romance that may be difficult for you to deal with. Perhaps you are taking a more rational approach to things while your loved one is taking a more emotional one. Lucky numbers: 02, 47, 69. AQUARIUS: January 21 to February 19 Sensual, passionate relation is definitely on the agenda of activities for this week. Fun, excitement, romance, and love are all key themes likely to take precedence if you have anything to say about it and you do. Don't let someone else dictate your path for you. You know what you want, so don't say you don't care when you do. Love is coming your way. Learn how to grab it. Lucky numbers: 09, 41, 73. PISCES: February 20 to March 21 You may feel like the brakes have been slammed in the romance department. Realize that this doesn't mean you have to stop having fun. Laughter and good times are in store for you today as long as you don't get hung up on the slow pace of your love life. You can have a good time while taking things one step at a time. Savor each moment. Don't try to rush to the next Lucky numbers: 07, 26, 70.

One day John got yet another one of those calls. “What happened this time?” he asked. “My brakes went out,” Jill said. “Can you come to get me?” “Where are you?” John asked. “I’m in the drugstore,” Jill responded. “And where’s the car?” John asked. Jill replied, “It’s in here with me.” Bad Brakes At one point during a home game, the coach said to one of his young players, “Do you understand what cooperation is? What a team is?” The little boy nodded in the affirmative. “Do you understand that what matters is whether we win together as a team?” Good Treatment The little boy nodded yes. “So,” the coach continued, “when a strike is called, or you are out at first, you don’t argue or curse or attack the umpire. Do you understand all that?” Again the little boy nodded. “Good,” said the coach, “now go over there and explain it to your mother.” Mahogany Hall Luxury Boutique Resort is seeking a hardworking Belizean for the post of : C C C C C OOK OOK OOK OOK OOKInterested persons must have experience working at a resort Must be seeking permanent employment Bring along your resume and two letters of referencesOffering a salary of BZ$350 per weekApply in person at our Five Star Resort located on Paslow Falls Road, Bullet Tree Falls VillageEmail: info@mahoganyhallbelize.com Sec 73 of the Supreme Court of Judicature Act, Chp. 91 of the Laws of Belize Michael R.

John McAfee said he did not kill fellow American Gregory Faull who was found shot dead on Sunday on Ambergris Caye island, just off the coast of Belize, where both men lived. Police say he is a "person of interest" in their inquiries into Mr Faull's murder. Mr McAfee says he is hiding from police out of fear they want to kill him. He was detained earlier this year over the alleged possession of guns and drugs, but was released without charge. Mr McAfee told the Associated Press news agency in a telephone interview that he was in hiding somewhere in Belize in the company of a young woman. He said Gregory Faull had been "an annoyance" but denied killing him. Mr McAfee told AP he was unarmed and changing locations frequently to stay one step ahead of the police. The police say they want to question him over the murder of Mr Gregory Faull 52 John McAfee Faull, who was found lying in a pool of his own blood on Sunday morning. Prime Minister Dean Barrow has urged Mr McAfee to help police with their inquiries. He said Mr McAfee was being paranoid. "I don't want to be unkind, but he seems to be extremely paranoid, I would go as far as to say bonkers," Mr Barrow said. Mr McAfee, who made millions selling his software firm in the early 1990s, settled in Belize around four years ago. Now a yoga aficionado, he no longer has any role in the anti-virus software company he founded. Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim.

The festival marks the arrival of the Garifuna people to Dangriga. A mixture of African music and religion with native Carib language and traditions blends into a vibrant, tasty, stimulating experience. Garifuna Settlement Day, is celebrated throughout the country, but especially in Dangriga, the cultural capital of Belize. There is traditional Garifuna and Belizean food, live punta music, games and Jonkunu dancers. In addition they reenact 'The Landing.' The Garifuna are a people produced from the merging of two cultures. The history goes that two slave ships were shipwrecked in the Caribbean near the island of St. Vincent. The slaves escaped the sinking boat and reached the shores of the island, where they were welcomed by the Caribs, who offered their protection. Their intermarriage formed the Garifuna people. The Garifuna adopted the Carib language but kept their African musical and religious traditions. In 1795 the Garifuna people rebelled against the British. The British punished them for their insolence by deporting them to the island of Roatn, off Honduras. According to legend, the Garfuna hid cassava, a mainstay of their diet, inside their clothes, where it stayed alive watered by the sweat of the tightly packed captives. They planted the cassava on Roatn, where it grew abundantly. In 1832, many Garifuna left Honduras after a civil war there and settled in Dangriga, Belize on November 19th. Garifuna Settlement Day began to be celebrated in Dangriga in 1941. The matriarchal structure of Garifuna culture reflects their West African roots. The mother is the center of her family, which in turn is the basic unit of society. The culture's ancient wisdom is past down through women, and it is even believed that they can communicate with the dead. Garifuna believe the dead can directly influence the living, and the women are WESTSIDE WESTSIDE WESTSIDE WESTSIDE WESTSIDESHOPPING CENTER SHOPPING CENTER SHOPPING CENTER SHOPPING CENTER SHOPPING CENTER Happy Garifuna Settlement Day From Us.# 5A Burns Avenue, San Ignacio Cayo.

The killing was one of the deadliest targeted attacks in Colombia in years. Police say the suspects belong to a criminal gang whose leader was arrested last month and who ordered the attack from behind bars. They said the motive could be revenge for his recent capture or a deadly message to businessmen who have refused to pay the gang protection money. The security forces arrested Oscar Dario Barrientos and two of his men in north-western Antioquia province. Police say they were the three men who approached the foreman of a farm in Santa Rosa de Osos last week and asked if the owner had been paying protection money. In a scene which a local official described as "something out of hell", they then opened fire killing nine men and a woman who were harvesting fruit. Police director Gen Jose Leon Riano said the attack had been ordered by a man known as "Jose 18" the leader of a gang calling itself Los Renacentistas. Gen Leon Riano said it was not yet clear whether "Jose 18" had ordered the attack to avenge his capture in October or if it was in retaliation for the non-payment of protection money to his gang by the farm's owner. The local mayor said there had been a rise in extortion in the area. The Colombian government says criminal gangs are one of the main threats facing the nation and have declared its fight against them a key priority. “Wawansera Mmeba Lau Lubafu Bungiu hama hari” (We Keep Going Forward with the Power of God and the Ancestors).

The situation has been made worse by a drought earlier this year, it says. At least 54 people died as Hurricane Sandy hit the impoverished Caribbean nation two weeks ago. The country is still struggling to recover from a devastating earthquake in January 2010. During the spring and summer of this year, rural households in northern parts of Haiti were badly hit by drought. Then, Tropical Storm Isaac caused extensive damage in August. Two months of heavy rain followed before Haiti was hit by Hurricane Sandy on 23 October. New floods An estimated 21,000 people were left homeless by the hurricane, which also destroyed at least 70% of crops of yam, corn and banana in the south of the country. The UN's World Food Programme says many areas remain isolated. The Haitian government and the WFP have now appealed for an extra $39m (£24m) to continue distributing food, to rehabilitate agricultural land and for flood control. It has continued to rain heavily in most of Haiti since the hurricane. Floods in the country's second biggest city, Cap-Haitien, left at least 20 people dead last week. "We didn't even have anything. And now, we have lost everything," Rochenel Cineus, a Cap-Haitien resident told the AFP news agency. The father of three has been sleeping in the streets with his family since Thursday night.

There are legally authorized mechanisms by which Public Utility Providers or licensees may protect themselves against incurring bad debt by service users or to recover outstanding balances owed by such users. However, a Public Utility Provider or licensee may deny service to a premises if there is evidence that any person who is residing at the premises and who will benefit directly from the service, has an outstanding balance with such Public Utility Provider or licensee. Members of the general public are further advised that if you vacate a premises and leave an active account that is used by another person or if you allow another person to use an account in your name, then you are naturally responsible for any outstanding balances left on such an account. Persons who are denied services due to outstanding balances owed by other persons or who are required to pay such outstanding balances may file formal complaints to the PUC, which shall address such complaints in the appropriate manner. ISSUED BY : The MINISTR Y OF ENERGY SCIENCE AND TECNOLOGY AND PUBLIC UTILITIES and the PUBLIC UTILITIES COMMISSION November 13, 2012. Jamaica Bans Preaching On Commuter Buses Jamaica's public transport authorities have banned lay preachers from addressing commuters in public buses. Jamaica is a predominantly Christian country, but many passengers have complained about the noise and disturbance. Drivers have been instructed to politely warn religious ministers that they are no longer allowed to evangelise fellow passengers. Preachers say the decision infringes freedom of speech and religion. "I am all for evangelising, but they cannot use the bus as their platform," Hardley Lewin, managing director of the Jamaica Transit Company Limited said. He told The Gleaner newspaper that commuters resent being a captive audience. "I think this is what makes the bus an attractive mobile church. I suppose you cannot just get off because you have spent your money," said Mr Lewin. Correspondents say lay ministers many of them Christian evangelicals have accepted the decision for now, but may decide to challenge it by citing Jamaica's constitution, which inludes the right "to manifest and propagate his religion". Prominent evangelical pastor Herro Blair said preachers should have approached the public transport company before embarking on attempts to evangelise commuters.
