As a single parent he tended his daughters while the wife is away in the United States of America. Based on the information received the home was invaded by two male persons of dark complexion one of whom wore a baseball cap while the other had a rag over his face with only the eyes visible. The men reportedly made off with a few dollars which they took from the victim’s pocket after which they ran out the back door towards the race track located behind the house and disappeared into the darkness. The police conducted a fruitless search in the vicinity. As the investigation continues, the search is underway for the two suspects. Anyone with information that could assist the police in this case is asked pass it on to the police. The investigation is reportedly focused on a suspect who was recently released from jail after serving time for allegedly burglarizing Valencia’s house.

He was removed from the public area and transported to the police station where he was identified as Canadian national Jeffery Furgala He was placed inside a vacant holding cell. As is customary, prior to handing over to the morning shift, a night officer, at around 6:30 am, was in the process of checking inmates and getting them to clean the cell block prior to handing over and reporting off duty. The policeman reportedly approached the cell occupied by Furgala and when he received no response from the sole occupant, he opened the door where he saw the non-responding detainee, laying face down on the cement floor. The man was removed from the cell and rushed to the community hospital in San Ignacio where he was checked and rushed to the Western Regional Hospital in Belmopan where he was again checked and sent on the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital where he passed away three days later at around 11:30 pm on Tuesday, January 29. Police investigation revealed that the deceased had been in the country for about two weeks and was engaged with assisting a friend in building a house in the Calla Creek Area of the Cayo District. While the rumour was churning out reports of a case of alleged police brutality, the Officer Commanding the San Ignacio Police Formation informed that, if any brutality took place, it was certainly not inside the police station as a review of the cameras and interviews with inmates revealed no evidence thereof. It is reported that, in statements to officials from the police Internal Affairs Department (IAD) several inmates informed of hearing a bang inside the adjacent cell followed by loud snoring leading to the suspicion the detained might have fallen inside the cell. The investigation is therefore focusing on possible negligence on the part of the police for locking away a drunken man who was unable to help himself. The body was positively identified by Christopher Furgala, older brother of the deceased.The post mortem examination conducted by Dr. Hugo Sanchez, between 7: 30 and 9:30 am on Thursday, January 31, certified the cause of death as bronco aspiration due to severe head injury with skull fracture as a consequence of an alledged fall. Family members of the deceased have since arrived in the country to take charge of the body. They have reportedly declined all media interviews and in the process requesting for the media to halt all coverage of the incident until the investigation has been completed.

Tel: 824-3099 Cell: 652-0123 Food For Thought "To ICJ or Not to ICJ?" Food For Thought "To ICJ or Not to ICJ?" Food For Thought "To ICJ or Not to ICJ?" Food For Thought "To ICJ or Not to ICJ?" Food For Thought "To ICJ or Not to ICJ?"Contributed by: Karla Heusner The question that will be put to Belizeans in the Referendum this October is whether or not to take the still unresolved Belize-Guatemala dispute to the International Court of Justice for resolution. October seems a bit far down the road to some, but just around the corner to others. Somewhat like the threat of Guatemalan military invasion. For many older people, this was just a moment ago. To the younger generation? Ancient history. Something they themselves have no first-hand experience with. But while the historical animosity and failed attempts at diplomatic resolution form part of the collective historical memory for all adult Belizeans, ultimately it will be the ability, or inability, of the older heads to put the territorial dispute to rest. No matter the outcome, this will be our legacy to our children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and all future generations. These children have in fact, already started to arrive. My youngest daughter was born in 2001, not long after I had been invited to Washington, D.C. as a member of the Belizean press corps covering the OAS talks between Belize and Guatemala. Some members of the delegation joked when they say me with baby in hand that she was the “Differendum Baby” because, as you will recall, the feeling was that to call it a “dispute” sounded too negative. This was also the time when the term “adjacency zone” developed, as an alternative term to “border.” Such are the semantic gymnastics of diplomacy, but the verbal sleight-of-hand did not stop the Guatemalan delegation from doing what the negotiators might call a “run for the adjacency zone.” Do you remember? Do you recall the press conference where the Belizean delegation, led by the flamboyant Ambassador Assad Shoman flanked by Ambassador Fred Martinez and other select upstanding Belizeans, faithfully outlined to Belizeans what was to come next, only to discover that the Guatemalan team, perhaps afraid of the political fallout, had not taken this information home to their own people? In fact, some of them did not even go home, but hid out in New York somewhere. (Such was the rumor at the time anyway.) You can check the records for the details, or perhaps in the coming months you will see articles in the Belizean press reminding us of what went wrong. In any case, the Guatemalans, at that time, acted in a manner that people who are not so diplomatic, would call bad faith. As a result, after several years of meetings under the auspices of the OAS, all the Belizean people received was a hefty bill for the negotiating team salaries, ambassadors’ lodgings and drivers, plush hotel, first-class plane tickets, meals, stipends, etc. We also got to continue to live under a cloud of uncertainty. Which brings us to 2013, and the public awareness campaign just launched as a prelude to the Referendum in October. I was pleased to see the young people there. I was pleased to see such a cross section of Belizean leaders and intellectuals. I was pleased to see support for the vote to go to the ICJ and opposition to going. It will, no doubt, be a lively process. I will tell you right now, much to my deeply committed father’s chagrin, that I have not reached a definitive a personal decision about it-yet. I am still wrestling with issue. I want more information on which to base my choice. I would like to hear some legal opinions on our chances of maintaining complete territory. What has been the track record of the ICJ in previous disputes for other countries? But I also wonder, what happens if do we do nothing and continue to have this sword hang over our heads? Should we take a chance and hope the ICJ will take our side? Even if I knew, right now, which way I would vote, I would not try to influence your own decision. But I will encourage you to turn out for the referendum. To play your part as a Belizean in the process, no matter what the Guatemalans do--or do not do. We must continue to show the world that Belizeans act with integrity when it comes to the issue of territorial integrity. Yes, the Mayan people of Belize have taken the governments of the day to task over land rights and the use of protected areas and these conversations will continue; but no Belizean government has ever exterminated entire villages of indigenous people, or violated their human rights on the scale of our neighbor. Their record speaks for itself, just as our record as a haven for refugees from civil war torn countries-including Guatemalaspeaks for itself. Of course, the main concern about any potential court decision would be the loss of any of our territory or maritime boundaries. But many of us can see that even now, little by little, our land and sea are already being invaded by those who come across to cut our timber, take our valuable plants, fish and ravage our waters and sea bed, use our highways, airstrips and border crossings for drug and human trafficking shipments. If the ICJ were to maintain our current borders, would that not help us to secure what is clearly not secure now? Unlike in former times, the current threat to Belize is not only external, but internal, with certain criminal elements already claiming our main port, Belize City. Our grandparents watched the borders anxiously, fearing a military invasion. Our parents worried about the withdrawing of British troops, leaving us exposed. Now, the daily concern for Belizeans of all ages—including children-is our own personal security: will we be assaulted or murdered in our homes, in our restaurants and shops, on the highways, in our district towns and villages, on trips to the cayes? We are afraid of home-grown gangs and international gangsters. For many Belizeans, Guatemalan political posturing, the possible loss of land or sea, is the least of their concerns. All they can worry about is being safe today in their own homes, their own yards, their own rivers or piece of sea. And who can blame them? But perhaps they will begin to think about the larger issue of national security as we approach October. Perhaps they will realize that the Guatemalan threat to our territorial integrity will not just go away, no matter how much we wish it would. Successive Guatemalan governments have shown they will continue to use it for their own political propaganda purposes. The citizens of Guatemala may wish for nothing more than amicable relations with their neighbors. They may even have family ties here. But they are not in charge of policy. Good will in business and cultural activities can only go so far. There must be an internationally recognized end to the dispute. If Belizeans decide not to the ICJ, then the next step must be to come up with an alternative process. We cannot just go back to the OAS. We cannot count on Guatemala to honor that process. At least, I personally wouldn’t count on them. My daughter is 11 now. Yes, it has been that long since the main round of OAS negotiations. Even if we go to the ICJ, there may not be a decision until she is older still, maybe even 21. If we do not go? If we do not find another avenue to pursue? Then she, like everyone else her age, may still be dealing with this issue well into their own adulthood. Just as we did. Just as our parents did. Just as our grandparents did. To me, this is what the question to go to the ICJ, or not to go is all about.

Eve Street, San Ignacio Cayo District, Belize CA. January 23, 2013 Manager 824-3231 Dear Editor, Living beings deserve preference over motor vehicles. Pedestrian crosswalks offer some measure of safety, but even there, many drivers push past school children, mothers with baby carriages and the elderly, without yielding the right of way. Education of drivers and "Stop for Pedestrians" signs would be helpful. One obvious location that needs a pedestrian crosswalk is between the police station and the circular park. Opponents of a crosswalk complain that it would slow down the traffic. Good. So many people have to cross there daily, and risk life and limb, as cars, trucks and motorcycles from four directions race to cross the bridge. I appeal to the powers that be, to consider providing more protection for pedestrians.

(Cesar A. Diaz, Mr) For Registrar Of Lands Bidding Farewell To A Friend By A Colleague And Friend Bidding Farewell To A Friend By A Colleague And Friend Bidding Farewell To A Friend By A Colleague And Friend Bidding Farewell To A Friend By A Colleague And Friend Bidding Farewell To A Friend By A Colleague And FriendBY: Mr. George Frazer, Colleague Educator and Trade Unionist Faith; a regular and active parishioner of our Sacred Heart Church here in San Ignacio. A great philosopher and communityleader once said that, “where success is concerned, people are not measured in inches, pounds, the levels of your wealth or education or even your family-background, but, by the “size of your thinking and by the love and positive impact you have for reaching-out and uplifting the lives of your fellow-men for the better.” Our brother John was such a person. John Pinelo was born in Trapiche, Santa Elena, Cayo on the 24 November 1948, the first of thirteen children, six sons and seven daughters, born to Gregorio and Eluteria Pinelo deceased. John grew up and worked hard on the humble, family farm in this open and river-side area of Santa Elena here in Cayo. Although things were tough, John and his siblings pressed-on and enjoyed a happy and active life, close to nature. John attended the Santa Elena RC Primary School where he excelled and passed the then Primary Schools Examinations in the early 1960’s Always motivated to excel, John, like many of the teachers of his time was kept on as a Pupil-teacher helper. He began his illustrious, teaching career in January, 1964. With the assistance and guidance of the then principal and some older, experienced teachers, John applied himself and pressed-on determined to succeed and make his mark. Within two-years, by 1966, John was enrolled at the Belize Teachers’ Training College, at the Intermediate Level where he pursued studies which led to his successfully taking the First Class Teachers’ Certificate Examination in 1967. Quite an achievement in such short order in the teaching profession. Life-long learning and the drive to pursue and achieve saw John back at the Teachers’ College to pursue the 2+1 Trained-Teachers’ Diploma Course, which he successfully completed, graduating in 1970. In 6 years after beginning his teaching career, as a Pupil-teacher, helper from Std 6, John, was a Trained teacher; quite a feat! Teachers, pay heed. John’s career as a Primary School teacher and School Administrator, as Vice, then Principal for many years in six Roman Catholic primary schools, all here in the Cayo District, spanned a period of 40 years. John taught at Santa Elena R.C., Roaring Creek R.C., Sacred Heart Primary, Bullet Tree R.C., St. Francis Xavier, (Esperanza) and Succotz R.C. Primary Schools. John served as principal in most, if not all of these schools and made his mark, impacting and motivating the lives of thousands of students and many teachers, many of whom have become leading and successful professionals, business persons, politician and other leaders here in Belize and abroad. Never content to stand still or to be left behind, John also pursed and successfully completed the Special 1-year Principals Certificate in Education Course in Educational Administration and Management at the Belize Teachers’ Training College (BTTC) in 1998-1999. Parallel to his career as an Educator and being driven by his ambition for love of family, community, church and country, was John’s passion for betterment, respect and social-justice for our people and country. John was a true believer and disciple of our Lord’s command, to “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” and of the creed to “love your neighbor as yourself.” He was a natural with a big heart to reach out, advocate and fight for the under-dog; the poor and the needy; and to strive for social justice and betterment for our people and nation. Is it a surprise then, a surprise that he was such a strong advocate for workers, the poor and needy….and who became one of our best, most recognized, respected and successful modern-day Belizean trade union leader and educator who in my book has been the best and most courageous National President of eight presidents that I served under of our great (BNTU)? The record speaks for itself: From the establishment of the BNTU in July 1970 and perhaps even before in the Catholic Education Association (CEA). John was a long time community activist and officer at both the Branch level of our San Ignacio Branch and, at least 1-term, 2 years while serving as Principal of the Succotz R.C. Schools of our BNTU Benque Branch). John was the longest serving National President of BNTU having served for a total of 12 years between 1985 and April 2003 with breaks in-between. It was under John’s Presidency, that we achieved many of the wonderful gains benefits and better working conditions in our Education System, and union, which teachers and other workers enjoy today. Examples for BNTU and teachers are major salary adjustments, better maternity, sick, study and vacation leave, Time-off for pay-days and BNTU union meetings and a 38 weeks School Year also New and better allowances for our teachers and workers in general (better labour laws, including the 5-day work week, improved maternity leave, minimum wages etc.) check the records! True Union leadership, service and commitment entails and means many SACRIFICES, hardships, fights and at times abuses, insults and threats. Our spouses and children can attest to these.

COMMISIONER OF LANDS AND SURVEYS 30th January 2013 and late hours many times suffering hunger, vehicle break-downs, punctures and even minor accidents and close calls; and yes even threats from politicians and their cronies. These were and are the life and experiences of many of us leaders…but the fight goes on. As John, a true Brother and partner often told me or asked “Why was it that when he was President we faced some of the greatest fights and challenges?…Strikes, Protest/ demonstration and yes some serious battles and fights with GOB and some of our religious leaders and school managers, when he was president? But, at the end of it all the positive results and gains for our teachers, Education System and Students. The pains and scarifies were worth it! …. But life and John, like all of us humans also have and experience many bright and happy moments….many life-changing and life-long memories and experiences. John’s happiest and proudest moment was when he met the young and beautiful lady Ernestine Moore and he said “Aha, dis dah the one,” and he went to work on his plan. Never to be denied and determined…John would not be denied and “Ernie” and her parents said YES! John said “yu no wah get weh gial” and John did his thing and took the lovely Ernie to the altar to be his bride on the 27thDecember, 1967. This matrimony of (44 + years) produced four beautiful and loving children: 2 males and 2 females: J ohn Jr, Edgar, Marilyn – now Mrs. Lee, and Noeli – now Mrs. Nicholson. They are all well established professionals, well-respected and proudly serving their respective communities and Belize. The legacy continues and they have to date, presented their proud parents with 8 beautiful grand-children: Leo, Jean Michael, Johnelli, Mia, Cleo, Aidan, Zaiden and Xander Pinelo. After retiring as a teacher and principal at the Primary School level, John was quickly picked-up by the Management (Board) of Sacred Heart College here in San Ignacio where he taught and worked for a few years as a Religion and Wood worker teacher. To those of us who knew him well, John was always a happy-go-lucky, dependable and true friend; who always gave of his best and enjoyed life. Unfortunately for him, his family and many of us, his relatives and friends over the past couple years, since 2010, he was diagnosed with cancer. John was a courageous and determined man who applied himself well; whatever the challenges and task. He always said that he and I had many things in common and made a “ good tag-team.” John was a lover of nature and music, among other things and was an ambitious and multi-faceted person, and handy-man, especially around the home and at the workplace. He was especially good with the hammer and saw and the carpenter’s trade and tried his hands at anything; be it with vehicles, electrical, on the dance-floor and even some sports. He loved his wife, children, family, union and church above anything else and was always at the fore-front of any social and community activity; wherever he lived and worked. As they say “John was a born-leader and peoples’ person,” a true and dependable friend. We will MISS YOU John, but your work and achievements will stay with us. Well done good soldier; you have done your work and touched many of our lives for the better. Farewell dear Brother and enjoy your well-earned reward. And speaking of rewards and recognition John has earned his share too; both nationally and abroad, especially for his work, contribution and achievement in education and trade union leadership. Foremost among these was the award and appointment by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II to him on December 31, 2003 as a Member of the British Empire (MBE). Unfortunately for him, his family and many of us his close and long-time friends, over the past couple years from 2010 he was diagnosed with cancer which took a toll on him and his immediate family. He was received treatment from various sources, including from the Cancer Centre in Dangriga. He seemed to have stabilized and even recovered to some degree, but we cannot always win against some of these chronic and deadly diseases. God thus saw it fit to relieve him of his suffering and pains, and called him home to his eternal rest and glory. The late John Pinelo Sr.MBE is survived by his beloved wife Ernestine, children: John Jr. Edgar, Marilyn (now Mrs. Lee), Noeli (now Doctor, Mrs. Nicholson); 8 grandchildren: Leo, Jean Micheal, Johnelli, Mia, Cloe, Aidan, Zaidan and Xander Pinelo ; He is also survived by sons-in-laws: Garnett Lee and Lorenzo Nicholson and by daughters-in-law: Selina Pinelo nee Del Valle and Michelle Pinelo nee Bejos; father: Gregorio Pinelo; 3 brothers: Crescencio, Alfonso, Amalio and Angel; 6 sisters: Manuela Baldera, Angelica Cabb, Bidding Farewell To A Friend By A Colleague And Friend Bidding Farewell To A Friend By A Colleague And Friend Bidding Farewell To A Friend By A Colleague And Friend Bidding Farewell To A Friend By A Colleague And Friend Bidding Farewell To A Friend By A Colleague And Friend From Front Page 13 “The Newspaper that cares and dares to bring out the truth”Publisher: Nyani K.
