was armed with a sawed off shotgun, stormed into the bar through a back entrance. The armed assailant moved directly to the bar owner, AndreaWestby, 33, pointed the gun at her and demanded "the money" in broad Creole. Fearing for her life she promptly handed over an estimated four thousand dollars she had in her possession.
The assailants also relieved two female employees of personal property. At the time of the incident, Westby was accompanied by four employees. There were no customers in the bar at the time of the incident.
The assailants reportedly exited the bar through the route of entry and with rags still concealing their faces, they reportedly ran across the nearby Coronation Park through the alley next to Venus Hotel, onto Burns Avenue and reportedly escaped in a waiting black car which sped down Burns Avenue.
The investigation initially resulted in the detention of a male relative who was one of the four employees present during the incident, he was however later released without any charge as the investigation continues.

Crowds cheer newly-wed couple as Prince William and Kate Middleton kissed on the balcony of Buckingham Palace.
Prince William and Kate kissed twice on the balcony of Buckingham Palace after their wedding service in Westminster Abbey.
They were cheered by thousands of well-wishers who gathered outside the palace, as RAF planes flew past in honour of the new royal couple.
Some 1,900 guests watched the couple exchange their vows in the abbey, with many millions watching at home.
The bride will now be known as the Duchess of Cambridge.
The Queen is hosting a buffet reception at the palace for 650 guests.
The church service ran smoothly but the prince did struggle to place the wedding ring on the duchess's finger.
Following a long tradition, the ring has been fashioned from Welsh gold given to Prince William by the Queen.

vows, in which she did not promise to obey William, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Rowan Williams, declared: "/ pronounce that they be man and wife together, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen."
They spent a private moment together with their families, as they signed the marriage register.
Prince William has been given the title of the Duke of Cambridge by the Queen, and Miss Middleton has become Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cambridge on their marriage.
The duchess, who managed to keep her wedding dress a secret, is wearing an ivory and lace gown by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen. The prince is wearing the red tunic of an Irish Guards colonel - his most senior honorary appointment.
Well-known faces spotted at Westminster Abbey included singer-songwriter Sir Elton John and his partner David Furnish, former England rugby coach Sir Clive Woodward, and former England football captain David Beckham and his wife Victoria.
Actor Rowan Atkinson, a close friend of Prince Charles, Prince Harry's friend Chelsy Davy and film director Guy Ritchie were also there.
UK Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha, Australian prime minister Julia Gillard, former British PM Sir John Major, and Home Secretary Theresa May were among the politicians present.

President Hugo Chavez To Venezuelans: Go Out And Occupy Unused Lands And Buildings
President Hugo Chavez's decree has put the force of law behind his longtime practice of urging the poor to occupy vacant buildings or unproductive farmland. The result is strife between beneficiaries and owners of private property.
responsibility is to maintain public order; at the same time,
By Chris Kraul, Los Angeles Times, April 7, 2011, 4:13p.m. Caracas, Venezuela:
When Elbert Santiago, a poor messenger service employee and father of three, heard about a chance to trade up from his "hole" of a slum apartment to a place a short stroll from the presidential palace, he didn't think twice.
After all, the price was the same for both places: practically nothing.
Santiago is a squatter, one of the army of poor who with the encouragement of leftist (sic) President Hugo Chavez have taken over an estimated 155 office, apartment and government buildings here in the Venezuelan capital.
Sure, he shares the place with 27 other families, and the seven-story office building is a shambles. At street level, the windows have been boarded up and graffitied over; inside, a dingy, narrow corridor leads to elevators that no longer work. But it's home.
"It's sad, but it's necessary," Santiago said as he repaired his motorcycle on the building's sidewalk along busy Urdaneta Avenue. "There is a shortage of decent housing in the city."
Across the nation, squatters have also taken over parking lots, storage yards, factories and 6.5 million acres of farmland.
"Land for the people, not for landowners, nor for fascists," Chavez said during a recent broadcast of his "Alo Presidente" TV program.
For most of Chavez's 12 years in office, there was no hard and fast legal basis for property invasions, although he made it known that his government would make no effort to dislodge people who occupied what he deemed "unproductive" farms or abandoned apartment buildings.
That legal basis materialized in late January when Chavez issued a decree authorizing the takeover of land and buildings to provide housing for thousands of people left homeless by devastating floods over the winter. The government then relocated them to entire floors of
A male child plays in the courtyard of Venezuela's Foreign Ministry building, part of which President Hugo Chavez opened up to people left homeless by winter flooding. He also declared it legal for them to occupy
some private properties, (photo: Jorge Silva, Reuters / April 8, 2011)
government buildings, including the Foreign Ministry, and forced several hotels, including the five-star Intercontinental in Caracas, to take in affected families.
A tenet of Chavez's socialist "Bolivarian Revolution," the policy is meant to redistribute the nation's wealth and address what Chavez says are illegal accumulations by the wealthy of underused or idle land and buildings.
But it has deeply polarized the nation, with Chavez supporters and beneficiaries on one side and those who believe in private property rights on the other.
One such believer is Maria Paz Raga, a Caracas-based media consultant and mother of two who said she has lost two properties to squatters in six years, a one-acre plot that she inherited from her grandmother and a weekend beach condo she saved for 25 years to buy.
"My apartment on La Guaira beach was taken over by a band of criminals that now charges squatters a monthly fee so they can stay," Raga said. "My little farm in Aragua state was taken along with several other parcels by a man who fenced them all in and now keeps them under an armed guard."
The conflicts that arise from Chavez's policy are evident in the Caracas suburb of El Hatillo. There, squatters have taken over part of a 50-acre parcel where Rafael Viso had planned to build a 66-house subdivision called Bosques Corralito.
Viso has had violent
confrontations with squatters who he says are led by criminal bands that take over property and then broker them to others. (Encountered on a makeshift access path, several squatters declined to be interviewed.) Viso also says squatters smashed his car's windows and fired a shotgun at him to frighten him into leaving.
"Most of my neighbors are afraid to confront them, but I'm not," Viso said.
"If it comes to a gunfight, so be it," said Viso, who added that he, his son and his three caretakers are armed to prevent more squatters from invading.
Viso and others blame local officials for not enforcing laws they say favor property owners. But El Hatillo Mayor Myriam do Nascimento said she is caught in the middle.
"On the one hand, my

we have a president that appears on TV and tells people to go out and occupy land," Do Nascimento said. "We're in a very difficult position."
The January decree unleashed a wave of illegal takeovers that even Chavez can't control, including a mass takeover of properties Jan. 22 in the municipality of Chacao, an affluent and mostly anti-Chavez district of greater Caracas.
Officials heard of a plan by dozens of Chavez-backed squatters to take over properties at 3 a.m. and were ready for them. Sirens sounded and 700 police emerged to defend properties. Despite efforts of Interior Minister Tarek El Aissami to dissuade them, by daybreak invaders had taken over 19 properties.
After negotiations, 13 groups of squatters left voluntarily, while six retained control of empty parcels, mainly parking lots, and vowed they would build houses there.
"We maintain permanent vigilance, especially at night when the squatters like to operate," developer Viso said. "Chavez wants to deny us the right ofprivate property, but he can't. It's too deeply rooted."

BELIZE CITY, Thursday, April 28, 2011:
Belize Police Youth Cadet Corp was formed in 1994 as part of Department's initiative to foster and build a relationship with the community, while at the same time providing an alternative for at risk youth. With a current strength of over 1,300 elements from all over the country, the Police Cadet Corp continues to targets young persons between the ages of 8 to 17. The Goal of the Corp is to develop self-esteem, good discipline, personal growth and strong moral, ethical character, diligently practicing good
sportsmanship, perseverance, compassion, respect, responsibility and developing leadership skills.
A Sports Camp is usually held during the Easter break, but this year the department decided to explore regional and national competition to ensure maximum participation of the cadets.
The regional competition commenced on March 26, 2011 with the Northern Region at the People's Stadium in Orange Walk Town where Corozal competed against Orange Walk to determine a northern representative. In the end Orange Walk emerged victorious with the most first place wins (10 to 8).
The Southern Region followed at the Ecumenical High School in Dangriga Town on April 2, 2011 where Punta Gorda, Mango Creek and Dangriga contested to represent the South. At the conclusion Dangriga won with the most first place wins followed by Mango Creek and then Punta Gorda 12, 5 an 1 respectively.
On April 9, 2011 the competition moved west in search of the western regional champs. Belmopan, San Ignacio and Benque Viejo competed in this region at Sacred Heart College in San Ignacio Town.
In the end Belmopan secured the spot defeating the others by scores of 9, 7 and 2 respectively.
And finally, the Central Regional Competition was held at Gwen Liz High School in Belize City on April 16, 2011 where participants from the
from the cayes competed.
At the conclusion Hattiville emerged victorious followed by Yabra (11-7) respectively.
The time has now come for the national champion to emerge. The fierce competition will be held on Friday, April 29, 2011 commencing at 8:30 am with an opening ceremony at Marshalleck Cancha in Benque Viejo Town, Cayo District.
It is expected that 572 cadets, 78 instructors, referees, along with invited guest will partake in this event. The results will be released
different precincts, villages and next week.

Heritage Bank
History In The Making, Over A Hundred Years Later, Benque Viejo Town Getting A Bank
BELMOPAN,Thursday, April 28, 2011:
The Ministry of Economic Development, in collaboration with the Benque Viejo Town Council and Heritage Bank Limited, is pleased to announce the official ground breaking ceremony for the construction of a new Heritage Bank in Benque Viejo Town.
The ceremony begins at 10:00 am on Friday April 29, 2011 on the site at the corner of Church and Victoria Streets.
The new facility will be a one-storey Ferro-concrete building measuring 60 ft by 46 ft with concrete roofing. It will offer a range of full banking services and access to a 24 hour Automatic Teller Machine.
Benque Viejo del Carmen is
the westernmost town of Belize situated along Belize's border with Guatemalan. In existence for over a hundred years, Benque Viejo town was once the hub of commercial activity in the Cayo District during the chicle industry.
Benque Viejo experiences rapid growth and development so does the upgrading and addition of new and improved facilities. Last week a new polyclinic was inaugurated, a new public library will soon be officially opened next week and several other new development projects are in the pipeline. Among those in the making is Western Border Free Zone facility which will generate further economic activity and employment in the area.
Benque is also known for its annual July Fair, which is one of the largest cultural events in country. Numerous Belizeans visit the community during the fair thereby generating increased economic activity in the area.
The establishment of a first bank in Benque, is emblematic of Government's continuous efforts to create an enabling investment environment in pursuance of its overall goal to achieve sustainable development for Belize.
This reality also underscores the efforts and vision of Hon Erwin Contreras, Minister of Economic Development and Area Representative for Cayo West, working assiduously to provide a wide-range of services to the residents of Benque Viejo del Carmen, Succotz, and the other surrounding communities.
"It is a historic day, full of promise for the community as increased economic opportunities and activities are expected to accompany the opening of this banking institution," commented the Mayor of Benque Viejo, His Worship, Nicholas Ruiz.

January 2001 the main thrust of Heritage Bank Limited (formerly the Alliance Bank of Belize) is to make banking services and products accessible to the average Belizean. Its entrance in the market was historic for Belize in that Belizeans were able to support a Belizean bank that would channel funds invested right back into the country. The Bank shaped its operations around policies that promoted and supported local development.
In 2006 Heritage International Bank & Trust Limited (formerly Provident Bank & Trust of Belize Limited) acquired majority interest in Heritage Bank Limited and in October 2008, an integration of the two banks began. As part of a fresh image and a new beginning, the names of both banks were changed effective January 1,2010.
"We are excited to be the first bank to break ground in Benque Viejo del Carmen and we intend to serve Benque and the surrounding communities with enthusiasm," said the bank's Managing Director, Mr. Stephen Duncan.

"I Walk With A Rag To Cover My Face From The Dust" last year wd
Contributed: Santa Elena, Cayo, Wednesday, April 27, 2011:
I write in regards to the article "Neighborhood Watch Committee Complains of Extremely Dusty Streets in Santa Cruz" published in edition #270 of the STAR Newspaper dated Sunday April 24, 2011,1 wish to reiterate the concern as a citizen residing in the Hillview area of Santa Elena Town. I walk daily from home to work, constantly faced with the dust in my face and eyes with every passing vehicle.
By the time I reach the Western Highway, my shoes and feet are terribly dusty and unpresentable for work each morning.
I walk with a rag to cover my face from the dust on the road in the area of Eden High School. My house is always dusty and as a result I am affected by allergies and sinus each morning.
I am very concerned that, under these unhealthy conditions, we and our children are exposed to contracting lice, conjunctivitis, tonsillitis and even cataract. Our children walk
This isjne dust we Walk through daily.,.
through this dusty, busy road several times each day as they go to and from school.
Before the road was graded, it was very rocky and cracked from the rains of last year. Today the taxi drivers refuse to respond to request for transport. Many taxi operators refuse to further damage their vehicles due to the terrible condition of streets in the Hillview and Santa Cruz areas of Santa Elena.
Many days, I am unable to attend mass or even go to the market because it is difficult to get a taxi to come to the area where I live.
I am now suffering from joint pains in my knees resulting
from walking through rocky and bumpy streets.
Just grading the street will not make much difference when rainy season starts. There is no proper drainage system and so the streets will deteriorate again with every down pour of rain and we will have to go through
I pray that the Area Representative and those at the town council will listen to the sincere plea of all of us living in this area.
Santa Elena needs proper infrastructure. We need drains and proper paved streets to improve the livelihood of the neighborhood.
This concern has nothing to do with politics, it is about a concerned taxpaying citizen asking for the investment of some of our tax dollars into improving our town.
I have taken timeout to snap pictures of the street in front of Eden High School and the nearby Radio Station as I walked through it daily. I sincerely hope that these pictures provide graphic testimony of our daily experience in the area.

Pink Eye - Conjunctivitis
BY: Mayo Clinic Staff
Pink eye (conjunctivitis) is an inflammation or infection of the transparent membrane (conjunctiva) that lines your eyelid and part of your eyeball.
Inflammation causes small blood vessels in the conjunctiva to become more prominent, which is what causes the pink or red cast to the whites of your eyes.
The cause of pink eye is commonly a bacterial or viral infection, an allergic reaction or � in babies � an incompletely opened tear duct.
Though the inflammation of pink eye can be irritating, it rarely affects your vision. If you suspect pink eye, you can take steps to ease your discomfort. But because pink eye can be contagious, early diagnosis and treatment is best to help limit its spread.
SYMPTOMS
The most common pink eye symptoms include:
� Redness in one or both eyes
� Itchiness in one or both eyes
� A gritty feeling in one or both eyes
� A discharge in one or both eyes that forms a crust during the night
� Tearing
WHEN TO SEE A DOCTOR Make an appointment with your doctor if you notice any signs or symptoms you think might be pink eye.
Pink eye can be highly contagious for as long as two weeks after signs and symptoms begin. With an early diagnosis you can protect people around you from contracting pink eye, get treatment to help you cope with your symptoms and reduce your risk of complications.
CAUSES Causes of pink eye include:
� Viruses
� Bacteria
� Allergies
� A chemical splash in the eye
� A foreign object in the eye
� In newborns, a blocked tear duct
VIRAL AND BACTERIAL CONJUNCTIVITIS
Viral conjunctivitis and bacterial conjunctivitis may affect one or both eyes. Viral conjunctivitis usually produces a watery discharge. Bacterial conjunctivitis often produces a thicker, yellow-green discharge. Both viral and bacterial conjunctivitis can be associated with colds or with symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as a sore throat.
Both viral and bacterial types are very contagious. Adults and children alike can develop both of these types of pink eye. However, bacterial conjunctivitis is more common in children than it is in
adults.
ALLERGIC CONJUNCTD7ITIS
Allergic conjunctivitis affects both eyes and is a response to an allergy-causing substance such as pollen. In response to allergens, your body produces an antibody called immunoglobulin E (IgE). This antibody triggers special cells called mast cells in the mucous lining of your eyes and airways to release inflammatory substances, including histamines.
Your body's release of histamine can produce a number of allergy signs and symptoms, including red or pink eyes.
If you have allergic conjunctivitis, you may experience intense itching, tearing and inflammation of the eyes � as well as sneezing and watery nasal discharge. Most allergic conjunctivitis can be controlled with allergy eyedrops. CONJUNCTIVITIS RESULTING FROM IRRITATION
Irritation from a chemical splash or foreign object in your eye is also associated with conjunctivitis. Sometimes, flushing and cleaning the eye to rid it of the chemical or object causes redness and irritation. Signs and symptoms, which may include watery eyes and a mucous discharge, usually clear up on their own within about a day.
RISK FACTORS Risk factors for pink eye include:
� Exposure to an allergen for allergic conjunctivitis
� Exposure to someone infected with the viral or bacterial form of conjunctivitis
� Using contact lenses, especially extended-wear lenses
TREATMENT FOR
BACTERIAL CONJUNCTIVITIS If your infection is bacterial, your doctor may prescribe antibiotic eyedrops as pink eye treatment, and the infection should go away within several days.
Antibiotic eye ointment, in place of eyedrops, is sometimes prescribed for treating bacterial
pink eye in children. An ointment is often easier to administer to an infant or young child than are eyedrops, though the ointment may blur vision for up to 20 minutes after application. With either form of medication, expect signs and symptoms to subside within a few days. Follow your doctor's instructions and use the antibiotics until your prescription runs out, to prevent recurrence of the infection. TREATMENT FOR VIRAL
CONJUNCTIVITIS There is no treatment for most cases of viral conjunctivitis. Instead, the virus needs time to run its course � up to two or three weeks. Viral conjunctivitis often begins in one eye and then infects the other eye within a few days. Your signs and symptoms should gradually clear on their own. � Antiviral medications may be an option if your doctor determines that your viral conjunctivitis is caused by the herpes simplex virus.
TREATMENT FOR
ALLERGIC CONJUNCTIVITIS
If the irritation is allergic conjunctivitis, your doctor may prescribe one of many different types of eyedrops for people with allergies. These may include antihistamines, decongestants, mast cell stabilizers, steroids and anti-inflammatory drops. You may also reduce the severity of your of allergic conjunctivitis symptoms by avoiding whatever causes your allergies, when possible. Lifestyle and home remedies
To help you cope with the signs and symptoms of pink eye until it goes away try to: a. Apply a compress to your eyes To make a compress, soak a clean, lint-free cloth in water and wring it out before applying it gently to your closed eyelids. A cool water compress may help relieve allergic conjunctivitis. If you have bacterial or viral conjunctivitis, you may prefer a warm
compress. If pink eye affects only one eye, don't touch both eyes with the same cloth. This reduces the risk of spreading pink eye from one eye to the other.
b. Try eyedrops. Over-the-counter eyedrops called artificial tears may relieve symptoms. Some eyedrops contain antihistamines or other medications that can be helpful for people with allergic conjunctivitis.
c. Stop wearing contact lenses. If you wear contact lenses, you may need to stop wearing them until your eyes feel better. How long you'll need to go without contact lenses depends on what's causing your conjunctivitis. Ask your doctor whether you should throw away your disposable contacts, as well as your cleaning solution and lens case. If your lenses aren't disposable, clean them thoroughly before reusing them.
PREVENTION Preventing the spread of pink eye Practice good hygiene to control the spread of pink eye. For instance:
� Don't touch your eyes with your hands.
� Wash your hands often.
� Use a clean towel and washcloth daily.
� Don't share towels or washcloths.
� Change your pillowcases often.
� Throw away your eye cosmetics, such as mascara.
� Don't share eye cosmetics or personal eye-care items.
Although pink eye symptoms may resolve in three or four days, children with viral conjunctivitis may be contagious for a week or more. Children may return to school when they no longer experience tearing and matted eyes.
If your child has bacterial conjunctivitis, keep him or her away from school until after treatment is started. Most schools and child care facilities require that your child wait at least 24 hours after starting treatment before returning to school or child care. Check with your doctor if you have any questions about when your child can return to school or child care.
PREVENTING PINK EYE IN NEWBORNS
Newborns' eyes are susceptible to bacteria normally present in the mother's birth canal. These bacteria cause no symptoms in the mother. In rare cases, these bacteria can cause infants to develop a serious form of conjunctivitis known as ophthalmia neonatorum, which needs treatment without delay to preserve sight. That's why shortly after birth, an antibiotic ointment is applied to every newborn's eyes. The ointment helps prevent eye infection.

Guatemala Arrests Suspected Drug Kingpin Sought By The US
GUATEMALA CITY, Wednesday, April 27, 2011:
Guatemalan police have arrested Waldemar Lorenzana Lima, wanted by the US for his alleged links to Mexico's powerful Sinaloa drug cartel.
Lorenzana, 71, was detained outside Guatemala City with the help of US agents, officials said. He is accused of working with the Sinaloa gang to smuggle cocaine from Colombia to the US.
Mexican cartels have stepped up their influence in Guatemala, where law enforcement is weak.
Lorenzana Lima, a Guatemalan national, was stopped in the municipality of El Jicaro, 65km (40 miles) from the capital, Guatemala City.
Waldemar Lorenzana, 71, could face extradition to the US
The suspected trafficker, for information leading to his
nicknamed the Patriarch, had arrest.
been sought by the US Interior Minister Carlos
since 2009, which had offered Menocal said agents from the
a half million US dollars reward FBI and the US Drug
Enforcement Administration (DEA) had helped in the investigation.
In April last year, the US treasury department put Lorenzana and his sons, Eliu, Haroldo and Waldemar, on a list of alleged drug kingpins. His sons are still at large.
The US is likely to request Lorenzana's extradition.
Guatemala and much of Central America is facing growing violence, much of it linked to drug gangs.
In March, US President Barack Obama promised $200m (f 125m) in extra funds for the fight against organised crime in Central America during a visit to neighbouring El Salvador.
The UN has also promised more international support for Central America, amid concerns that the region's government's do not have the resources to contain the growing power of the drugs cartels.

To Drill Or Not To brill Should Be A Decision To Be Made By Elected Officials In The Best Interest And Needs Of Electors
By: Wellington C. Ramos
It has been said for years that Belize is rich in vast quantities of oil and other natural resources but the problem is that only a few families know exactly how to tap into these resources.
Most of these families are people who have relatives in government that are privy to this type of information in the past and present.
In Belize there are several citizens who have and continue to apply for lots and lands and are continually being denied without any good justifiable reason. While on the other hand, the same families that already have huge tracks of land, continue to apply and are given additional lots and lands to add more to their vast land reserves.
There is a strong possibility that these same persons are applying for lands based on information provided to them by their relatives in key government positions that these lands possess oil and other natural

resources. If this is the case, then the working class and poor Belizean families will never be able to benefit from our country's oil and other natural resources unless we nationalize some of our industries.
When some people hear about nationalizing some of our industries they label it as something bad for capitalism, the private sector or businesses. However, a good government must always put the interest of its citizens and the nation first before they decide to make that move as was recently done with BTL.
A government that is not inclusive and serving the best interest of the majority of its citizens could be deemed as undemocratic and eventually will become vulnerable to civil unrest by a majority of its citizens.
I am a strong believer that government's purpose and sacred duty is to provide the enabling environment for its people to have the means to become productive citizens.
The government of Belize must continue its efforts to create employment, security, liberty, education, quality health care, residential lots, farm lands, and a clean environment to all its citizens.
The government of Belize can only provide these essential needs with revenues earned from extracting its natural resources and using them towards our industrial and technological development thereby limiting the importation of goods and services from abroad.
Many years ago in Belize, there were several governmental departments that played a vital role in building the national infrastructure and contributed towards our development and sustainability in Agriculture, Fisheries, Public Works, Lands and Forestry. Most of these departments have either been privatized or downsized and their duties and functions transferred to private interests or to persons related to members of the government which can be construed as a conflict of interest.
In some cases the cost to the Belizean taxpayers are a lot higher than when the govern-
ment provided some of these same goods and services.
In the years of the previous administration, almost all of the remaining national assets were sold out to friend, relatives and cronies for pittances.
Currently, there is a group in Belize soliciting signatures from Belizeans to ban offshore drilling in Belize.
To drill or not to drill for oil in a country is a decision to be made by elected officials after assessing the needs and best interests of the people who elected them to serve. A referendum on this subject, if allowed, could be challenged in court by the government on the grounds that such a decision is the constitutional responsibility of the elected government.
The group advocating for no drilling offshore or in protected areas has given the following five reasons to advance their argument against drilling as follows:
1. Belizean laws does not allow for class action suits and only the Attorney General can bring about a case on behalf of the people who are injured.
2. Petroleum companies have more rights over our land than we the citizens and the taxation is too small.
3. There is no transparency in awarding contracts to prospective oil companies.
4. Protected areas could be encroached upon because of the lack of an Enforcement Agency and
5. The absence of an independent regulatory board to enforce all the laws related to drilling.
All five of these concerns are legitimate and are resolvable through the passing of additional legislations. After the laws have been passed, appropriate Regulatory Bodies and Enforcement Agencies should be established to enforce and monitor compliance with these regulations.
The discovery of oil in Belize is something new and while we should remain vigilant and cautious, we should remain open minded about the benefits that the industry can bring to our people and country rather than be engaged in setting up road blocks to deprive the masses
from enjoying the wealth of the nation.
I am also wary that some of these political interest groups might be influenced by some political parties or other individuals to reserve drilling until the party they support come to power to bennefit from the issuance of drilling licenses.
When the previous government was in power, they were allowed by the then opposition the United Democratic Party to freely explore all the avenues that existed to drill for oil in our country so that we can gain additional revenues for our people and nation.
Now, we have discovered that most of those contracts that were issued then had clauses giving our country a small percentage of the total revenues from oil finds.
Pretty soon those companies contracts will be expiring and we will have the power to either increase government's take or not to renew their contracts, and seek new companies with new contracts.
Belize is indebted to international creditors to the tune of 1.1 Billion US Dollars which is known as the Super Bond. The nation is obligated to repay the debt for the sake of future generations of Belizeans.
The current revenues from traditional sources is not enough to service this huge debt and so government must find additional revenue sources to survive.
The government knows where all the oil, gas and natural resources are as will as the potential earning capabilities. If certain Belizean families and prospectors have ready access to this information then every citizen of Belize should have equal access.
As the population continue to grow, Belizeans will be making more demands on governments whether it is UDP, PUP, VIP, PNP or any other �P" for that matter.. In the absence of the revenue to address these demands any future government of Belize will be seriously challenged to address the needs of its people.
People are tired of promises, rhetoric and sweet talk especially when their children have no food in their stomachs and when jobs are unavailable for them to earn money to pay their bills.

Twenty Five Years Later
It Takes A Friend____
Jack decided to go on a weekend hunting expedition with his buddy, Bob. They loaded up the station-wagon and headed north. After driving for several hours, they got caught in a terrible rain storm.
They pulled into a nearby mansion and asked the attractive lady of the house if they could spend the night.
"I'm recently widowed," she explained, "and I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house. "
"Not to worry," Jack said, "we'll be happy to sleep in the garage"
Nine months later, Jack got a letter from the widow's attorney.
He drives over to Bob's house and when Bob opened the door he asked, "Do you remember that good-looking widow who gave us shelter for the night?"
"Yes, I do." said Bob.
"Did you happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and visit with her?"
"Yes, I have to admit that I did."
"Did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name?"
Bob's face turns red and he said, "Yeah, I'm afraid I did. "
"Well, thanks! She died last week and left me everything!"
The Police Recruit
Drill Sergeant Jones had just chewed out a BDF Recruit on the parade square.
As he was walking away Sgt. Jones turned to the Recruit and said, "I guess when I die you'll
come and pee on my grave."
The Recruit replied, "No Sir. Not me Sergeant. No Sir! I promised myself that when I got out of the Army I'd never again stand in another line!"

Mail resumes to: Human Resources Department PO Box 1676 Belize City
While enjoying an early morning breakfast in a San Ignacio Restaurant on Burns Avenue, four elderly friends were discussing everything from the weather, to politics, to religion, to business and even to how things used to be in the "good old days."
Eventually the conversation moved on to their spouses. One gentleman turned to the fellow on his right and asked, "Roy, aren't you and your bride
celebrating your 50th wedding anniversary soon?"
"Yup, we sure are," responded Roy.
"Well, are you gonna do anything special to celebrate the occasion?" another friend asked.
Roy pondered this for a moment, then replied, "For our 25th anniversary, I took Betty down south to Punta Gorda. Maybe for our 50th, I'll go down there and visit her."
No Further Question Your Honor - My Client Was Wasted Indeed
Judi was sitting inside the defendant box while the policeman was being cross-examined by her crafty lawyer.
The lawyer asked, "When you stopped my client, were the red and blue lights on the police mobile flashing?"
"Yes, sir, they were." "Did my client say or do anything when she got out of her car?"
"Yes, sir, she did."
"And," looking at Judi, her lawyer demanded " Now you are telling this honorable court that my client was drunk. I want you to tell the court exactly what my client did and said."
"She looked at the lights, walked up closer to the mobile and asked - What disco are we in?'"
How Simple Is Simple Simon?
Simple Simon is so simple that:
1. He tripped over a cordless phone.
2. He spent a full 20 minutes looking at the gallon of orange juice just because the label said "concentrate."
3. He told me to meet him at the corner of "WALK" and "DON'T WALK."
4. He studied all night last night for a blood test.
5. When he missed the #44 bus, he took the #22 bus twice instead.
6. He was on is way to the supermarket when he saw a sign that said "Supermarket Left," he turned around and went back home.

Latest Police Brief
SUICIDE IN SAN PEDRO
On Wednesday, April 27, 2011 at around 11:30 am Police responded to a report at Pedro's Inn located on Sea Grape Drive, San Pedro Town. Upon arrival they were directed to room #3, where they encountered the motionless body of a Caucasian male person, identified as Michael Donald Virgin, 41, USA national of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. He was found sitting in an upright position on a small bed with one end of a piece of green rope fastened around the neck and the other tied to an overhead beam.
Dr. Otto Rodriguez was called
out to the scene where he officially pronounced Michael Virgin dead. The body was later removed and transported to the morgue at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH) in Belize City.
The legally required post mortem examination was conducted by Dr. Hugo Sanchez between the hours of 2 and 3pm on Thursday, April, 2011, at the conclusion of which the cause of death was certified as Asphyxia due to hanging. There were no visible signs of foul play and the case was classified as an incident of suicide.
Another US Fugitive Captured In The North
On Thursday, April 28, 2011 about 4:30 pm, acting upon information received, Corozal Police visited a house in the northern village of Chan Chen where they met US national Ronald Dean Coward, 40, who was asked to present his passport and upon doing so, the Police observed that his permit to reside in Belize had expired since mid October last year. He was instantly detained and
escorted to the Corozal Police Station. Further investigation revealed that Coward is a fugitive of US law and that he is wanted in the United States of America on pornography production charges.
He will first answer to violating Belizean Immigration laws after which he will be escorted by Belizean law enforcement official to the United States of America .
lunchtime reception. They will miss Prince Harry's best man speech and Michael Middleton's father of the bride address.
Prince William's choice of a military uniform for his wedding was something of a surprise, royal watchers say. As a search and rescue helicopter pilot in the Royal Air Force, many had predicted he would wear his blue flight lieutenant's uniform.
However, as an honorary colonel of the Irish Guards infantry regiment, he opted to
wear the red tunic and forage cap.
His brother/best man, Prince Harry is a captain in the Household Cavalry's Blues and Royals regiment and is wearing his uniform, while Prince Charles attended in his Royal Navy admiral's outfit.
It stayed dry for the royal wedding, though the Met Office said there was a risk of heavy showers developing later on. Temperatures in the capital are expected to reach a high of 19C (66F) in the afternoon.
UNLICENSED FIREARM/AMMUNITION AND SUICIDE IN THE SOUTH
Also on Thursday, April 28, the United States of America for
2011, at around 9:00 am police conducted a search on board a sailboat docked at the Customs Wharf in Punta Gorda Town. The search led to the discovery of a .38 Special Smith & Wesson brand revolver with six live rounds of matching ammunition and fifteen 12 gauge cartridges.
The owner of the vessel, identified as UN national, Scott James Heinke, 43, was present on board along with another US national, identified as Elsie Roberta Strout, 27.
Both persons were instantly detained and escorted to the police station in Punta Gorda Town where they were later formally and jointly arrested and charged for the offence of keeping unlicensed firearm and ammunition.
They pled not guilty to the charge and were remanded to prison until Thursday, June 9, 2011.
Further investigation revealed that Scott Heinke was wanted in
fraud and other crimes.
In court Heinke informed Magistrate Leslie Hamilton
that he had a large amount of money on his boat enough to pay the court fine.
The Police were instructed to escort Heinke to his boat to secure his vessel and the property on board in preparation for spending time on remand in prison.
Upon boarding the vessel at around 4:30 pm Heinke climbed the mast about 20 feet high and tied a rope around his neck. Despite repeated requests from the police, he refused to climb down. The situation remained volatile for over two hours when at around 6:40 pm Heinke, with the rope still tied to the neck, jumped from the mast subsequently committing suicide. The apparent lifeless body was transported to the Punta Gorda Town Hospital, where it now awaits the legally required post mortem examination.

Before the road was g raded, it was v ery ro c k y and crac k ed fro m the rain s of last yea r. T oday the taxi dri v ers refuse to respond to request for transport. Many taxi operators refuse to furt h er da m a g e their v e h icles due to the terrible condition of streets in the Hill v iew and S anta Cruz areas of S anta Elena.
