Billy Webster Investigation Report

This was sent in to us anonymously via email and asking that we share it so others can know that the Belize Police refuse to do their jobs. Back in 2012 Canadian National William L Webster aka Billy Webster, was found dead in his home in Santa Elena, Belize police ruled the case suicide and have refused to re-open the case despite numerous requests from William’s wife and an independent investigation that shows that Billy did not and could not have committed suicide. The following quote is from News5: “When I got down there on the twenty-ninth, it took me […]


Belize is at war and doesn't know it

While stumbling online I ran across this article by one of Belize’s top photographers and thought it is too important not to share. I fully agree with Tony here, we are fighting a silent and invisible war that most of us don’t know is happening. I was speaking to one of the military personnel recently and he was telling me about this exact issue. I find it horribly disgraceful that Guatemalans can come into Belize and do as they please, when our military does their jobs in defending our nation and either capture or kill these armed invaders they get […]


TECHNOLOGY TO THE RESCUE! 7

By Gustavo A. Ramirez, Guidance Counselor / Education Consultant Some people may consider it as pathetic, even disgusting perhaps, that today’s super-advanced mobile technology has surpassed and replaced everyday human interaction.

Offshore Oil Drilling In Belize 2

Belize’s Government Under Pressure At Home For Offshore Drilling Concessions By Bilal Morris   The debate around offshore drilling in Belize hit center stage in June of 2010 with the Mayor of San Pedro, Elsa Paz, calling on her own government to have ‘consideration’ about making decisions on offshore drilling. Paz joined forces with advocates like the Coalition To Save Our National Heritage on the island to send a message to the Barrow administration to stop making decisions without consultation that can hurt the environment of Belize in the long run. “I believe that government should have some consideration before […]

Sugar Shortage Explained

7 News Belize Last year Belize experienced an acute sugar shortage – very sad for a country that produces sugar in abundance. The subtext to the entire episode was the fact that sugar was being smuggled out of Belize to be sold at a premium in Guatemala and Mexico. It’s the kind of thing where everyone knew what was up but no one could say for sure how it was happening. But a bust of contraband sugar in Guatemala has blown the whole thing open. On Saturday, Guatemalan authorities seized a truck carrying 140 sacks of smuggled white sugar from […]
