Day!! Day!! Day!! Day!! In 1984 a tree was planted. Therewas a change in Government for thevery first time in the history of Belize.The United Democratic Party (UDP) was elected to government. ThePeople’ s United Party (PUP) chain in Government was broken. A mere three years after the attainment ofpolitical independence, in 1981, thenew UDP government found thenation’ s finances in shambles. The first task of the new UDP government wasto get the nation’ s finances in order Unpopular but necessary political actions had to be taken. After five years of sacrifice, the nation’ s economic position was brought backon track. Just as the tree, planted in 1984, was about to bear fruits it was cutdown. The PUP was reelected togovernment in 1989. W ithout missing a beat the raping of the rescuedfinances of the nation resumed. Themismanagement of the nation’ s finances was such that within threeand a half year of its five year term inoffice, the PUP called generalelections, a full 16 months before itwas constitutionally due. In callingearly elections, the Prime Minister ofthe day George Price declared that “JOB DONE” Knowing that the task of building a nation is never done,Belizeans realized that what Pricemeant was that “MONEY DONE” The tree was replanted. The UDP was reelected to office by a landslidemajority in 1993. The reelected UDPgovernment, fully aware of what it wasgetting into, found the nationaleconomy in even worse state than it Sub Umbra Floreo was when it was first elected to officein 1984. The country’ s financial position was in a total mess. Thenation was on standby arrangementswith the International Monetary Fund.The foreign reserves stood at acritical two weeks of import with thestatutory requirements being threemonths. Government was on theverge of being unable to meet thepublic service payroll. Even harderand much more politically unpopularactions had to be taken to avert theinevitable total economic collapse ofthe nation. Among the necessary actions that had to be taken was theintroduction of a 15% V alued Added T ax (V A T) and a reduction in the size of the public service (retrenchment) After five years of taking necessaryactions the national economy wascoming back to life. The tree wasbeginning to blossom. VAT and retrenchment however became thehallmark of the PUP campaignleading up to the next generalelection. George Price was forced toresign in 1996 and Said Musa was elected as the leader of the PUP inopposition. The blooming tree, on the verge of bearing fruits, was again cut down.The PUP this time with Said Musa as its leader was reelected into of fice in 1998. Nothing changed with thenew PUP the raping of the nation started almost immediately The nation began spiraling into economicdifficulties shortly after the MusaGovernment was elected to office.Intent on holding on to powerhowever the bucket sale of Belizean passports, mostly to Asians, became the order of the day The sale of Belizean passports was exacerbatedwith the uncertainty looming overHong Kong post 1999. The HongKong situation was eventuallystabilized thereby reducing thedemand for an alternative passports. In urgent need of finances to remain in power the attention of the PUP government was turned to the saleof the nation’ s assets. They sugar coated this bitter pill by calling itprivatization. The nation’ s electricity telecommunications and watercompanies were sold of f. The nation’ s only airport and only seaport weresold. This injection of quick fundscreated a false sense of nationalprosperity The dalla beer and the caliente dancers ushered the PUP intoelection victory in 2003. After the reelection hype, reality stepped in. The nation’s financial position was grim. The demand forBelizean passports had drasticallydiminished except for a few here andthere which was mostly used forpersonal enrichment not being enoughto shore up the failing economy There were no more national assets toprivatize/sell. The next availablealternative was to resort toborrowing. Thus began the recklessborrowing giving birth to the infamous$2 billion SUPERBOND all of which was used for recurrentexpenditure just to keep thegovernment floating with nothinginvested in capital expenditure toaddress the nation’ s deteriorating infrastructure. The recklessborrowing was unsustainable. ThePUP Musa maladministration fell in2008. The tree was replanted for a third time. Then entered a new PrimeMinister the Hon. Dean Barr ow an imminent attorney a no-nonsense politician, the man who was to become the nation’ s saving grace. The new Prime Minister was intent on notrepeating the 1984 and 2003political errors of his party His mantra was no new taxes, noretrenchment. Prime Minister Barrowmet the nation’ s finances in T OT AL SHAMBLES The International Monetary Fund came knocking on thedoors of the new Dean BarrowAdministration. Cut the public service,raise taxes, impose new taxes was theIMF’ s prescription for economic restoration. Prime Minister Barrow’ s response to the IMF was “GO FL Y A KITE. NOT ON MY PEOPLE”. The new Prime Minister immediately set out to renationalizethe nation’ s assets sold of f by the previous administration. Firstto be renationalized was thetelecommunications company in2009 and the electricity company thefollowing year The private owners of the water company were not satisfiedwith the rate of return and, on theirown, resorted to returning thecompany to government control. TheDean Barrow administration usheredin the restoration of Belizean nationalpride. The conscience of Belizean voters was awoken. Theblossoming tree was saved. Itwas not cut down. The UDP for the first time, was reelected in 2012for a second consecutive term. TheBelizean people began to enjoythe fruits of the tree. The nationis undergoing unprecedenteddevelopment. The building of thenation is taking place in the north,south, east, west and central. The tree will never again be cut. It grew in the first term, bore fruits inthe second term. In a third term, Belizewill flourish under the political treeof the United Democratic PartyGovernment. Sub Umbra Floreo.

When wecan see, it is not faith, but reasoning.In crossing the Atlantic we observed this very principle of faith. W e saw no path upon the sea, nor sign of theshore. And yet day by day we were marking our path upon the chart asexactly as if there had followed us agreat chalk line upon the sea. And when we came within twenty miles ofland, we knew where we were asexactly as if we had seen it all threethousand miles ahead. How had we measured and markedour course? Day by day our captainhad taken his instruments and,looking up to the sky had fixed his course by the sun. He was sailing bythe heavenly not the earthly lights. So faith looks up and sails on, byGod’ s great Sun, not seeing one shore line or earthly lighthouse or path uponthe way Often its steps seem to lead into utter uncertainty and even Don’t Be A Don’t Be A Don’t Be A Don’t Be A Don’t Be A Litter Bug!!!

Agro Tech & Hardware Supplies potentially infected animals, washingafter this contact, and reducingrodents in areas people live and work.The antibiotic doxycycline, when usedin an effort to prevent infection amongtravellers, is of unclear benefit.V accines for animals exist for certain type of Leptospira which maydecrease the risk of spread tohumans. T reatment if infected is with antibiotics such as: doxycycline,penicillin, or ceftriaxone. W eil's disease and severe pulmonaryhaemorrhage syndrome result in deathrates greater than 10% and 50%,respectively even with treatment. Signs and Symptoms Leptospiral infection in humanscauses a range of symptoms, andsome infected persons may have nosymptoms at all. Leptospirosis is abiphasic disease that begins with flu-like symptoms (fever chills, myalgias, intense headache) The first phase (mild leptospirosis) resolves, and the patient is brieflyasymptomatic until the second phase(severe leptospirosis) begins. 90 percent of cases of the disease aremild leptospirosis and without anyspecific treatment and the rest developto severe leptospirosis. This ischaracterized by liver damage(causing jaundice) renal failure with same signs and symptoms; the heartand brain can be affected, meningitisof the outer layer of the brain,encephalitis of brain tissue with samesigns and symptoms; and lungaffected as the most serious and life-threatening of all leptospirosiscomplications. The infection is oftenincorrectly diagnosed due to thenonspecific symptoms. Signs and symptoms ofleptospirosis include high fever severe headache, chills, muscle aches, andvomiting, and may include jaundice, red eyes, abdominal pain, diarrhea,and rash. Initial presentation mayresemble pneumonia. The symptomsin humans appear after a 4–14 dayincubation period. More severemanifestations include meningitis,extreme fatigue, hearing loss,respiratory distress, azotemia, andrenal interstitial tubular necrosis,which results in renal failure andoccasionally liver failure (the severe form of this disease is known asW eil's disease, though it is sometimes named W eil Syndrome) Cardiovascular problems are also possible. Incubation (time of exposure to first symptoms) in animals is anywhere from 2 to 20 days. In dogs,leptospirosis most often damages theliver and kidney In addition, recent reports describe a pulmonary formof canine leptospirosis associatedwith severe hemorrhage in thelungs—similar to human pulmonaryhemorrhagic syndrome. V asculitis may occur causing edema and potentially disseminated intravascularcoagulation (DIC) Myocarditis, pericarditis, meningitis, and uveitis arealso possible sequelae. Eye finding may includeconjunctival suffusion Cause Leptospirosis is caused by aspirochaete bacterium calledLeptospira spp. At least five important serotypes exist in the UnitedStates and Canada, all of which causedisease in dogs: Icterohaemorrhagiae Canicola Pomona* Grippotyphosa* Bratislava Other (more common) lethal infectious strains exist. Geneticallydifferent leptospira organisms may beidentical serologically and vice versa.Hence, some argue about strainidentification. The traditional serologic system currently seems more usefulfrom a diagnostic and epidemiologicstandpoint—but this may change withfurther development and spread oftechnologies like polymerase chainreaction (PCR) Leptospirosis is transmitted by theurine of an infected animal, and iscontagious as long as the urine is stillmoist. Rats, mice, and moles areimportant primary hosts—but a widerange of other mammals includingdogs, deer rabbits, hedgehogs, cows, sheep, raccoons, opossums, skunks,and certain marine mammals carry andtransmit the disease as secondaryhosts. In Africa, the banded mongoose has been identified as acarrier of the pathogen, likely inaddition to other African wildlife hosts. Dogs may lick the urine of an infectedanimal off the grass or soil, or drinkfrom an infected puddle. House-bound domestic dogs havecontracted leptospirosis, apparentlyfrom licking the urine of infected micein the house. The type of habitats mostlikely to carry infective bacteria aremuddy riverbanks, ditches, gullies,and muddy livestock rearing areaswhere there is regular passage of wildor farm mammals. The incidence ofleptospirosis correlates directly withthe amount of rainfall, making itseasonal in temperate climates andyear-round in tropical climates.Leptospirosis also transmits via thesemen of infected animals. Humans become infected throughcontact with water food, or soil that contains urine from these infectedanimals. This may happen byswallowing contaminated food orwater or through skin contact. Thedisease is not known to spreadbetween humans, and bacterialdissemination in convalescenceis extremely rare in humans.Leptospirosis is common amongwater-sport enthusiasts in specificareas, as prolonged immersion inwater promotes the entry of thebacteria. Surfers and whitewaterpaddlers are at especially high riskin areas that have been shown tocontain the bacteria, and cancontract the disease by swallowingcontaminated water splashing contaminated water into their eyes ornose, or exposing open wounds toinfected water Dear Readers & Contributors: Kindly forward all Ads, Letters, Articles, Comments and Humor to starnewspaper@gmail.com 804-4900 or 626-8822 Leptospirosis Leptospirosis Leptospirosis Leptospirosis Leptospirosis Continued From Page 9 “Offers low prices everyday!” #1 W est S t.
