The march comprising mostly pastors and followers from evangelical churches between Belmopan and Benque Viejo, as well as from communities in between, was attended by several hundreds of protesters. It began at around 10:00 am at the Macal River Park in San Ignacio where it also ended at around 1:00 pm in a heavy downpour of rain. While the protest is clearly against the Lesbians Gays Bi-Sexuals And Transvestites ( LGBT) agenda, as borne out by the placards carried by participants, organizers have confusingly say that the movement hasno room for hatred and homophobia. A disappointing and disrespectful aspect of today’s protest march was seeing men, women and even children parading with the Belizean national flag turned upside down at the request of organizers of the event.

At the location police came upon the body of a Hispanic male person floating face upwards in the river. The dead man was found dressed in a white short sleeved t-shirt, black three-quarter jeans pants, a pair of red and black tennis shoes, a white cloth tied around the head and a red rag tied around the neck. The body was positively identified by a male relative as being that of Mark David Robateau 28, Belizean laborer from the Hot Point Area of Santa Elena town on the George Price Highway. The investigation revealed that about 12 hours prior to the discovery, the deceased was seen alive around San Ignacio town by family members. The body was removed from the river and transported to the San Ignacio community hospital where it was officially pronounced dead by the doctor on duty. The legally required post mortem examination was conducted seven hours later by Dr. Blanco who reportedly did not instantly certify the cause of death. With no visible injury on the body, and in the absence of evidence to the contrary, investigators are initially ruling out foul play. Having been released from jail only a few weeks prior to the discovery of his dead body, Robateau is said to be no stranger to the police. On May 14, 2008 he was sentenced to five years imprisonment on conviction for the December 29, 2007 violent attack upon a 16 year old boy as he sat resting on the steps of a stationary store in San Ignacio. He was accused of stealing the student’s cellular telephone and its carrying case, his wallet, tennis shoe and 15 dollars calling card for a total of $779. When he was apprehended he was found in possession of the boy’s cellular telephone and the pair of tennis. Funeral services for Mark David Robateau will be held on Friday, July 12, 2013.

Open Daily From 10:00 am Hi All, Alan and I come to you today with disturbing news from Belize's capital. After appearing to testify in the murder trial of Mike and Donna Hill, which took an incredible five years to get to court, we were told that we could go home as the presiding judge chose to dismiss the case based on a ridiculous technicality. This is especially unbelievable given the fact that the police had signed confessions to these heinous crimes! The police did a diligent job, as did the prosecution. However, the judge--not a Belizean national-felt that although the police read the criminals their rights, they did not make sure that the "minors" understood them completely (because now our police are supposed to be trained psychologists able to determine comprehension on the part of those they arrest!). This, the judge said, undermined the basic human rights of the accused. WHAT ABOUT THE RIGHTS OF THE REST OF THE CITIZENRY??!!! We are now not safe from these violent criminals. Criminals that this judge knows have violent backgrounds of repeated crime.This is a sad day for the families of Mike and Donna, and an even sadder day for those of us living in Belize.

Acting upon information received, the police mounted an emergency check point on Joseph Andrews Drive at the intersection with 5th Street in San Ignacio. They conducted a search on a green passenger bus from the Belize Bus Owners Cooperative, where they came upon a young fellow sitting inside the bus with the trademark knapsack on his lap. The black bag was searched and was found to contain two parcels tightly wrapped in brown transparent tape. When opened the parcels were found to contain suspected marijuana. A further search under his seat led to the discovery of another knapsack, this time a green one, and when opened was found to contain another two parcels of suspected marijuana. The fellow was escorted out of the bus and transported to the police station in San Ignacio where he was identified as Cesar Augusto Barrera Vargas 18, unemployed Guatemalan from Barrio El Campito, Melchor de Mencos, Guatemala. When weighed in the presence of the accused, the four parcels recorded a total weight of 7,824.4 grams (17.25 pounds) of suspected marijuana. Cesar Augusto Barrera Vargas was consequently arrested and formally charged for drug trafficking. He was brought before magistrate Narda Morgan in the San Ignacio Town courtroom, on Wednesday, July 10, 2013 where he pled not guilty to the charge. Prosecutor George Gomez objected to the granting of bail on the grounds that the accused presents a flight risk given that he resides across the border in Guatemala. In Cesar Augusto Barrera Vargas 18 concurrence with the prosecution’s request, Magistrate Morgan proceeded to remand the accused to the central prison in Hattieville on orders that he be brought back to court on Monday, September 23, 2013. “The Newspaper that cares and dares to bring out the truth”#42 George Price Highway, Santa Elena, Cayo, Belize, CA Office Tel: 804-4900 Cell: 626-8822 and 626-8841 Happy Hour Two Beers For $5.00 From Sunday To Thursday 2 PM 7PM2 PM 7 PM2 PM 7 PM Check out our FACEBOOK page: Blue Angels Email: Blueangelsnightclub@yahoo.com

And it was not just on the training grounds. The Jaguars turned to fundraisers, doing a little bit of everything to get the necessary money to not only prepare for the tournament, but also head to the United States two days early to get acclimated to a different enviroment and the artificial turf at Portland’s JELD-WEN Field, foreign to the tiny Central American country. “Man, we did all kinds of things to reach where we’re at right now,” defender Ian Gaynair said following the team’s training session Thursday morning. “Thanks to our country for supporting us. We did barbeques, telethons, all kinds of things. The country is actually supporting us little by little now and I’m so thankful for that.” Gaynair helped repay some of that support by scoring Belize’s first Gold Cup goal. His header off Elroy Smith ’s free kick, which cut the Jaguars deficit to 2-1 late in the first half, was dedicated to his deceased sister. Gaynair said he dreamed of scoring that goal the night before the game. “ The night before I hardly even slept and the little time I did get to sleep, I saw she came to me,” Gaynair said of his sister. “She was my biggest fan.” Gaynair’s goal proved to the lone highlight of what Jaguars coach Ian Mork said was a disheartening 6-1 loss against the U.S. Tuesday. “We know we can play much better,” Mork said. “It’s just a disappointment that we didn’t show up with more confidence and a stronger mentality in that game. We really thought that was going to be our day when we could really prove we could keep up with them. When the score was 2-1, if we could have gone into halftime at that moment it would have made a big difference in the game.” Belize will try to turn the corner against a powerful Costa Rica team that hasn’t conceded a goal in six straight matches, including a 3-0 victory over Cuba in its opening game of the tournament. Lacking the depth of some other teams in the competition, the Jaguars have some very real injury concerns. Dalton Eiley was in Mork’s original starting lineup against the U.S., but he was pulled off late when he complained of breathing problems. “Dalton is still being assessed by the doctors so we just have to wait and see what comes out of that,” Mork said. Daniel Jimenez was the late addition to the starting lineup, but his mother back in Belize has become very ill. “It’s a big concern for us right now, too,” Mork said. There’s also Deon McCaulay who Mork said is coming off a major pre-tournament injury. McCaulay, who played the full 90 minutes against the Americans, didn’t train with the team in the morning session. Mork indicated that was precautionary and he expects the forward to be fit for Saturday’s match against Costa Rica. “The Newspaper that cares and dares to bring out the truth”#42 George Price Highway, Santa Elena, Cayo, Belize, CA Office Tel: 804-4900 Cell: 626-8822 and 626-8841

What he decreed would come to pass. It would be done. For example, if he said, “Raise the taxes,” the taxes would be raised. Do you know that we are kings? The Bible tells us that Jesus has washed us from our sins with His blood and made us kings. (Revelation 1:5–6) And as kings in Christ, our words carry power too. When we place our hands on a sick person and say, “Be healed,” the person is healed. When we lay hands on our children and say, “Be blessed,” our children are blessed. There is power in our words because they are the words of kings! When I was a young Christian in my teens, I wanted to practice what I had learnt about the power of my words. There was this particular plant near my home and whenever I passed by it, I would say to it, “Be cursed in Jesus’ name!” Many days passed. And I will never forget the day when I noticed that the leaves of the plant had turned brown! You may want to try this at home with your potted plants, but bless them instead! Since our words carry power, can you imagine the harm we do when we Art’s Mobile Service #54 George Price Ave, Santa Elena, Cayo Tel: 804 2659 or 630 3019* Welding Repair *FabricationCome Visit Us Today & Let Our Team Of Craftsmen Design & Fabricate AnythingAMSWe AMS to Please say to our loved ones things like, “You are always so careless”, “You are good for nothing” or “You are so stupid”? We are cursing them! The devil is happy when you use the power of your words against yourself and your loved ones. He wants to see you defeated. So instead of saying, “I am always short of money,” say, “ The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.” (Psalm 23:1) Instead of saying, “I am so useless. I can’t do anything,” start saying, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13) Beloved, remember that as a king, what you say will come to pass because where the word of a king is, there is power. So learn to say what God says about you in His Word and see His promises come to pass in your life!

FREE 3 day Computer Workshops and training See you this weekend! Special thanks to: US Allies Mexico, Chile And Brazil Seek Spying Answers US allies Mexico, Brazil, Colombia and Chile have joined other Latin American nations in demanding answers from Washington over spying allegations. Brazilian media reported earlier this week that the US had seized web traffic and phone calls across the region. Spying targets included oil and energy firms, Venezuela's military purchases and information on Mexico's drug wars. The reports, based on leaks by fugitive Edward Snowden said the US ran a "data-collection base" in Brasilia. The O Globo newspaper said the US facility in the Brazilian capital was part of a network of 16 such bases maintained by the National Security Agency (NSA) around the world to intercept transmissions from foreign satellites. The paper said it had evidence that the base was in operation until at least 2002, but it was unclear whether it still existed. 'Totally unacceptable' Brazil apparently remains the main target of US snooping in Latin America, with major firms and foreign visitors routinely targeted. The surveillance was allegedly conducted through partnerships between Brazilian telecoms firms and US agencies, although the reports did not name any companies. On Monday Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff urged the US to explain, and has ordered an investigation into the claims. She said if true they would represent "violations of sovereignty and human rights". During angry exchanges in parliament on Wednesday, senators suggested Brazil should give Mr Snowden asylum, while others said Brazil should cancel lucrative defence contracts with the US. Protests have spread from the streets to the parliaments of Latin America The allegations on O Globo detailed claims of US spying across Latin America, sparking an angry reaction from traditional American foes in the region like Venezuela and Ecuador. But analysts say the US will be much more concerned with the irritation the revelations have caused in Brazil, Colombia, Mexico and Chile. Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto said the foreign ministry had asked "quite clearly" for an explanation about the spying allegations. "And we want to know if this is the case, and if it is so, it would obviously be totally unacceptable," he said. Officials in Chile and Colombia made similar statements earlier in the week. Mr Snowden is still believed to be staying in the transit area of Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport, where he fled after being named as the source of a series of leaks about the US spying programme. He has asked for asylum in several countries, with Bolivia, Nicaragua and Venezuela indicating they would offer him refuge. According to various reports, Venezuela appears his most likely destination, although it is unclear how he can get there without being intercepted by the US or its allies. Mr Snowden's leaks have led to revelations that the US is systematically seizing vast amounts of phone and web data across the world, under an NSA programme known as Prism. “The Newspaper that cares and dares to bring out the truth” Publisher: Nyani K.

The Minister of Forestry, Fisheries and Sustainable Development, Senator Lisel Alamilla has gone on record expressing grave concerns about what she perceives could be the promotion of hate crimes against gay men and women in Belize. A statement below, posted on Facebook, by the Minister has sparked critisism from all walks of life; “I do not oppose persons having different views or religious beliefs but it concerns me immensely when those are being communicated by misinformation, manipulation and fear which could result in hate crime. Belize is not a melting pot, the Belize that I know is a country where persons of different cultures, ethnic groups, religious beliefs, languages and history come together under one banner and respect diversity. We are a reef people, we are a forest people, we are Belizeans. The photo that was shared with me, that I am now sharing with you is EXTREMELY concerning and even frightening. Have those persons who are organising the various activities opposing the gender policy & the UNIBAM case crossed the line? Will they soon be hanging women who dare to be leaders? Would they have hanged my son who was disabled? Would they hang me because I am mestizo who married a black man? You may say absolutely NOT but tell me then why is it okay for them to have the “The photo is EXTREMELY concerning and even frightening,” “The Newspaper that cares and dares to bring out the truth”#42 George Price Highway, Santa Elena, Cayo, Belize, CA Office Tel: 804-4900 Cell: 626-8822 and 626-8841starnewspaper@gmail.com albert.starnewspaper@gmail.comVisit Us On Line @belizenews.com/thestar belizenorth.com/TheStar.htm http://www.guidetobelize.info/Get a copy of the latest STAR at Your Favorite Store! Publisher: Nyani K. August Editor: Albert Nigel August cardboard cut out of a person, with a noose around its neck and the word UNIBAM written across its back? Is this not promoting hate? Will this not lead to hate crimes ? In fact is it not already increasing the violence against persons who from the LGBT community for their sexual orientation/identity? This is personal for me. My loved ones are at risk and our right to be different is at risk. As to the UNIBAM case, this is in the courts. Let the courts decide. As to the gender policy, it is not a homosexual policy, it is a policy that guides how government willprotect the rights of ALL its people. That is the responsibility of government.”

"To make myself beautiful," said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue. "What's the matter?" asked Little Johnny. "Giving up?"

Getting In Shape I feel like my body has gotten totally out of shape, so I got my doctor's permission to join a fitness club and start exercising. I decided to take an aerobics class for seniors. I bent, twisted, gyrated, jumped up and down, and perspired for an hour. But, by the time I got my tights on, the class was over.

He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed him to hear 100%. He went back in a month and the doctor said, 'Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again.' The gentleman replied, 'Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations.

She yells to the other sisters, "Was I getting in or out of the bath?" The 94-year-old yells back, "I don't know. I'll come up and see." She starts up the stairs and pauses "Was I going up the stairs or down?" The 92-year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her sisters. She shakes her head and says, "I sure hope I never get that forgetful, knock on wood." She then yells, "I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's at the door."

How To LIVE A HAPPIER LIFE I think everyone would agree happiness is an important part of life. What is happiness though? It is interesting that MerriamWebster ’s first definition of happiness is that of good fortune or prosperity. Although this can cause people to be happy, I do not think of happiness as good fortune. I believe the second definition is more fitting. Happiness is a state of well-being and contentment otherwise known as joy. Today I am going to share with you 10 EASY things you can do to bring more happiness or joy into your life. Envision what you want. Spend time each day thinking how you want your day to be. What do you want to accomplish? How do you want to feel? Take care of your body. You set yourself up for happiness by eating well and exercising regularly. If you do not take care of you, who will? Focus on the solution. You will see whatever you are focused on. This is why you do not want to dwell on the problem. Instead, look for the solution. Live in the present moment. You cannot be happy in the past and you cannot be happy in the future, you can only be happy right now. Focus on today. Be grateful. Write down everything you are thankful for in your life. Everyday can be Thanksgiving. Give often. Giving to others can lift your spirits. Give someone happiness and you will receive happiness in return. Smile more. All your worries and problems seem smaller when you are smiling. Give a smile — get a smile. Be kind. Take time to be considerate to others and show them kindness. An unselfish act of kindness will make you feel great. Find time to be quiet. Spend time quieting your mind each day. You can do this by taking the time to experience nature, meditate, or simply turn technology off. Laugh easily. Laughter is contagious and brings happiness to yourself and those around you. Try not to take life too seriously. Live in the present moment. You cannot be happy in the past and you cannot be happy in the future, you can only be happy right now. Focus on today.
