While we have previously writtenon this reality the trend continues as these identified troubled children,either ends up in jail or in the grave. Government intervenes in curbingthis troublesome trend throughHuman Services personnel posted inevery town across the country In the San Ignacio/Santa Elena scenario,however this intervention is either weak at best or nonexistent at worst,it is way off track as those chargedwith this important responsibilityeither do not understand theirrole, lack the capacity to effectivelyaddress the situation or theirperformance is simply not beingevaluated by those charged withsupervising and evaluating them. In this community several years ago we identified at least five such minorscommitting crimes. These minors arenow of age and are either in jail or inthe grave. The two most recent ones,clients of the local Human Services,were recently gunned down in frontof a Chinese shop as they attemptedto rob the establishment. Another one of these minors, now of age, wasrecently acquitted, with an accom-plice, of the brutal murder of Michael and Dona Hill While the accomplice is now free, this minor then, who isnow of age, remains in jail servingtime for the brutal beating and attemptmurder of his girlfriend. While we have brought it to thisof ficer Â’ s attention, we continue to witness that this individual is moreinterested in ensuring that the names and photographs of these minorsare not published in the newspaperinstead of seeking employment oreducational opportunities for these atrisk minors in the absence of whichthey continue down that troubled pathof crime or death. The time has come for HumanServices to seriously evaluate theperformance of its personnel in thiswestern municipality as these youngboys, and indeed our community continues to yearn for meaningfulintervention from competent publicofficers.

E-mail: W ash, V accum, Armoral & Engine W ash As W ell As Pr essur e W ashing Outside of Houses Dear Editor: I was so pleased to see yourfront page story revealing the truemotivation of the “constitutional” marches calling for withdrawal of therevised Gender Policy written by theBelize National W omen’ s Commission. The Belize Action or ganizers of these marches have duplicitouslydenied the anti-homosexuality pur-poses of the march repeatedly andloudly In fact, their sole (at least originally) dispute with the Gender Policyis the following section: “Respect for Diversity: Men and women in Belize are not ahomogeneous group. Rather the population is comprised of persons of all ageswho come from diverse races,cultures, ethnicities, faiths,sexual orientations, socio-eco-nomic situations and behaviourallifestyles. All policies and programmes must therefore reflectthis reality of diversity among theBelizean populace.” And that small section of the 52 page document is only objectionableto them for the inclusion of “sexual orientations” and “behavioral lifestyles,” because they recognize in an official way that homosexuals exist in Belize. Whatever one thinksabout the morality and propriety ofhomosexuality few Belizeans would deny that homosexuals indeed form apart of the broad diversity of Belizeansociety These Belize Action leaders, yoked to their Dominionist agenda toestablish control over the totality ofBelizean society by their “brand” of Christian belief, want to denyBelizean LGBT citizens the right tobe included in any description ofBelize, to be excluded from the grandfundamental rights guaranteed by theConstitution of Belize, indeed todemand that they be entirely invisibleto the culture and laws. It is but asmall step to move from this demandto one that LGBT citizens cease toexist. These mendacious leaders evenpublicized an early draft of theGender Policy knowing that it had been superseded by a later edition,because the earlier one had moreitems to which they could object withimpunity refusing for some time to post on their publicity pages links tothe actual draft. One cannot blamethe marchers; they are dazzled by theBelize Action leaders’ appeal to Jesus and the Father and they endorse the balance of the agenda much as wetechnical types click “accept” to software “terms of usage” withoutreading any of them, let alone the fineprint. Y our front page piece, along with your report of Senator Alamilla’ s concern about the effects of suchactions as the marches, does aservice first to the nation of Belize,second to the women of Belize, andfinally to the LGBT citizens of Belize.All Belizeans should be askingthemselves, “What is next after all of this struggle and strife? Howwill we all live together in mutual tolerance and peace and respect?” It takes reporting like yours toassist your readers in arriving atthoughtful, legal, constitutional, anddecent answers to that question. Y ou are to be applauded for that, andBelize is to be warned that theircountry is being quietly attacked onall levels by people who want to takeover in the name of a DominionistGod.Contributed by: Asa DeMatteo San Francisco CA EDEN SDA HIGH SCHOOL Eden Drive, Santa Elena T own, Cayo District T el: 824-2966 / Fax: 824-4479 Applications are invited from suitable qualified individuals to fill the following vacancies: EDEN SDA HIGH SCHOOL 1 English teacher (T emporary: September to November 2013) 1 Biology/ Physics teacher (T emporary: September to November 2013) 1 Math/ Chemistr y teacher (T emporary: September to November 2013) 1 Agricultur e Science teacher (Full T ime) 1 Spanish teacher (Full T ime) 1 Bible teacher (Full T ime) 1 Receptionist/ Secretary (license not needed) Qualifications for the teaching positions: Preferably a Bachelor Degree inEducation or in the subject area.

Hearing ournational anthem so loud and clear gaveme goose bumps as I watched thegames on television. Even though theoutcome was not as I'd hoped andprayed for those players on the teamdeserves much respect and love fromour fellow countrymen. As to the FFB I only wished that they would have gone the extra mileto "A T LEAST" place the names of the players on their jerseys. All the other participating teams had names on their jerseys; why did we fall shortthere? I think our down fall startedwhen Coach Sherrier left suddenly then Asst.

Prosecutor Javier Caraballo accused the 35 crew members ofendangering public security by illegallytransporting war material. The charges came just hours afterNorth Korea urged Panama torelease the ship and its crew withoutdelay Police found the weapons underbags of sugar Cuba has said it had sent the weapons to North Korea forrepairs. 'Hidden load' Panama has asked the UN toinvestigate whether there has been abreach of the sanctions against NorthKorea. The UN sanctions prohibit thesupply of arms to Pyongyang in thedispute over its controversial nuclearprogramme. "According to its declaration, the ship only carried 10,000 tonnessugar it never declared war material and that in itself is aviolation of the rules and a gravedanger for the transit through thePanama canal," Mr Caraballo said. He said the crew had remainedsilent when the charges against themwere brought. They will remain in detention whilePanamanian security forces continueto unload the cargo under which theweapons were hidden. Panama's Security Minister Jose Raul Mulino said the ship and its cargo had broken Panamanian andinternational law "This is not an official or military ship belonging to theNorth Korean government." "It's a commercial ship which wanted to pass through thePanama canal with a [cargo]declaration which failed to reflectwhat it was carrying, turning ablind eye to the fact that itscargo could be violating UNresolutions," he said. According to the security minister the search could take days. "This ship was loaded in a way to make it hard to unload; the ef-fort is enormous," he said. On W ednesday North Korea asked Panama to release the ship. "This cargo is nothing but ageing weapons which are to besent back to Cuba after overhaul-ing them according to a legitimatecontract," the North's foreign ministry was quoted as saying by thestate-run Central News Agency Cuba had earlier admitted beingbehind the stash of weapons found onboard the ship. It said they wereSoviet-era arms from Cuba headedfor repair in North Korea. The Cuban foreign ministry said theChong Chon Gang was carrying 240 tonnes of "obsolete" defensive weapons two anti-aircraft missilecomplexes, nine missiles in parts andspares, two MiG-21bis fighter planesand 15 MiG engines. Havana also reaffirmed its commit-ment to "peace, disarmament, including nuclear disarmament,and respect for international law". The Chong Chon Gang left Russia'sfar east on 12 April and travelled across the Pacific Ocean beforeentering the canal at the start of June,with Cuba as its stated destination. It was stopped near Manzanillo onthe Atlantic side of the canal last week, but Panama only releaseddetails of the find on T uesday The ship disappeared from satellitetracking systems after it left theCaribbean side of the canal, resurfac-ing on 1 1 July Experts say this may indicate thatthe crew switched off the systemwhich automatically communicatesdetails of their location. Panama says it is awaiting the ar-rival of experts from the UnitedNations Security Council to inspectthe weapons.

Hecalled up a veterinarian friend whotold him to bring in his cow The vet took one look at the cow stuck a tube up the cow's butt, andblew into the tube until the cow's eyesstraightened out. The vet charged thefarmer a hundred bucks, and thefarmer went home happy About a week later the cow's eyes were cross-eyed again, butthis time the farmer figured he couldprobably take care of it himself. So he called his worker over and together they put a tube up the cow'sbutt. The farmer put his lips to the tubeand started to blow S trangely nothing happened, so he asked theworker hand to give it a try The worker pulled out the tube, turned itaround, put the other end in the cow'sbutt and started to blow "What are you doing?" asked the farmer horrified. "W ell, I wasn't gonna use the side that YOU had put your lips on." You Asked For It A man runs into the vet’ s of fice carrying his dog, screaming for help.The vet rushes him back to anexamination room and has him put hisdog down on the examination table. The vet examines the still, limp bodyand after a few moments, tells the manthat his dog, regrettably is dead. The man, clearly agitated and not willingto accept this, demands a secondopinion. The vet goes into the back roomand comes out with a cat and putsthe cat down next to the dog’ s body The cat snif fs the body walks from head to tail, poking and sniffing thedog’ s body and finally looks at the vet and meows. The vet looks at the man and says, “ I’m sorr y but the cat thinks that you’re dog is dead, too.” The man is still unwilling to accept that his dogis dead. So the vet brings in a blackLabrador retriever The lab snif fs the body walks from head to tail, and finally looks at the vet and barks. The vet looks at the man and says, “ I’m sorr y but the lab thinks your dog is dead too.” The man, finally resigned to thediagnosis, thanks the vet and askshow much he owes. The vet answers, “$650.” “$650 to tell me my dog is dead?” exclaims the man. “W ell,” the vet r eplies, “I would only have charged you $50 for myinitial diagnosis. The additional$600 was for the cat scan and labtests.
