Charges illegal land distribution in Hopkins

Dear Editor,

Kindly treat this letter as a contribution or letter to the editor on behalf of the residents of Hopkins who expressed their disappointment as to how the Village Council manages the affairs of the community, especially the illegal distribution of lands.

Over the years, land distribution in Hopkins was conducted in a transparent manner that gave the residents confidence in the Village Council. But as soon as the new Village Council was sworn to office, it took a different direction, with no regards to the Land and Village Council Acts. Residents complain that the persons appointed by the Minister of Natural Resources as members of the Stann Creek West Lands Committee are not given the respect they ought to have, to make recommendations.

Too much plastic garbage on Ambergris

Envelope-to: [email protected]

From: ?A & J Orr? <[email protected]>

Date: Thu, 22 Jul 2004

To the Editor,

We just returned from a 10-day trip to Ambergris Caye, Belize, and we had a

wonderful time. We picked up a copy of your paper and enjoyed reading it.

The people were friendly, the food was good, the weather was excellent (a bit on the hot side, but then this is July!) and your reef is nothing short of spectacular!

An indictment of Kremandala and the Black Summit

The Editor AMANDALA

Dear Editor,

I have always been a strong supporter for more unity and activism among all Belizeans, particularly those of us descended, in various degrees, from former West Africans (Creole and Garifuna, to be specific) and Mayans. I believe in equal rights and justice for all Belizeans. Consequently, I was elated to hear of plans for a Black Summit. Leading up to the Summit, however, several connected parties started to indemnify themselves against offending other ethnic groups and civil organizations. That is when I began to fear that the Black Summit would be nothing more than an academic exercise attended mostly by Belizean Uncle Toms trying to feel good about themselves.

70 at Compre spells trouble for rural kids

The Editor Amandala

Sir,

Teachers at the Belmopan Comprehensive School have expressed an interest in upping the passing grade at Compre to 70%. The Compre brain trust has explained that the present passing grade, 50%, places Compre students at a disadvantage when they are seeking to matriculate to other high schools, to junior college, or to the University of Belize.

Anna tells police to ?get their act in place?

Dear Editor,

I am writing in compliance with the headlines of your newspaper for this week. I, as a Belizean, and I am sure many people feel as I do, am tired of all this police brutality. There are many complaints and many unknown cases of police brutality going on in Belize and there is no justice for the person being brutalized.
