FROM THE PUBLISHER

I guess every organization needs a hatchetman, someone who will deliver distasteful messages or perform unpleasant assignments. The largest organization in Belize is the public service, and in my time the man considered to be the ruling PUP?s no. 1 hatchetman was a man called ?Michael John? Hulse. Wherever he is, I want to tell him, ?no hard feelings,? but Michael Hulse did the hatchet job on me one time in a memorable way.

The case of Soup Williams bothers me, and it should bother all of us who are true Belizeans. The purpose of semi-professionalism in sports was to save talented young Belizean athletes from the exact fate which befell Soup ? crime and violence and jail. But powerful interest groups in Belize are opposed to professionalism in sports in an intransigent, though diplomatic, manner, and they have undermined professionalism to such an extent that pre-professionalism Belizean athletes are always expressing public and nostalgic longing for the supposedly good old days.
