Belikin's Revealing 2010 Calendar
Jaw dropping. That is one way you can describe the Belikin calendar for the New Year, thanks to some very provocative photos of young Belizean women chosen for the 2010 publication. It’s racier than it’s been in previous years, so much so that we can’t show you some of the pictures. Of course, the publishers of the calendar are selling beer, not bibles, and the calendar enthusiasts are mostly men who aren’t likely to be put off by the revealing pictures. But still management declined to speak to us about the revealing spread.
We did however get to speak to two of the models nineteen year olds Miss March, Michelle Swift and Miss October Samantha Gillett who had not yet seen the calendar until just before they were interviewed and like us were surprised about what they saw. We must note that both the young women’s photos are among the ones we can show you.
Michelle Swift, Miss March
It wasn’t really something I was thinking about a long long time. I had a cousin who actually did it and her sister is actually on the calendar and at the time I really thought it was something neat. I really liked the girls on the calendar, the way they represented themselves and I thought that when I got a couple age older I would try at least to see if I could make the calendar.
Samantha Gillett, Miss October
I like modelling and I have seen the other models taking calendar pictures and it is something I like so I investigated about it and I chose to be on it.
Your picture is not one considered as provocative but there are some pictures here almost bordering on pornography. How do you feel to be one of the models among these questionable photos that have been taken for next year’s calendar?
Well actually I guess it is their choice. They are the ones putting themselves out there in that kind of position. The other girls who decided to be more conservative, I believe it is their decision as well. What you want people to think of you, you will eventually put out. So if you want people to think that of you then it is fine, that is your decision.
Well about that I think that is their choices because some of the other girls took pictures but none of them did it topless or something like that so I think it is their choices.
Earlier this evening at six the Belikin calendar 2010 was launched at Palm Island where the models were present. Miss March Michelle Swift is a student of the University of Belize and Miss October Samantha Gillett is a student of Orange Walk Technical High. The photos were taken by Jeremy Spooner and Richard Holder. CH7
Crocodile attacks pet
during holiday weekend
Feeding crocodiles has been a dangerous practice in years past. The dangers of it have been explained on countless occasions and performing this action has been deemed illegal by law. Any person caught feeding these wild reptiles may be liable to a fine or imprisonment. Although, the law is there and although warnings have continuously been posted illegal crocodile feeding continues every so often.
The biggest danger stemming from feeding crocodiles is that they begin to associate people with food. With less food sources available to them these animals tend to look for something that will curb their appetite. That is just what they found on December 24th, at the Ambergris Lake. Corri Sterrenberg, owner, explained that shortly after hearing her American staffy, Ginger, yelp the most gut wrenching cry for help, she ran to the sound in the hopes of finding her pet. What she found was a severly injured Ginger, blood soaked and lying in a neighbor’s yard. The neighbor’s yard lies on the edge of the Lake. Based on the wounds presented on Ginger’s frame, Sterrenberg assessed that she had been attacked by a crocodile. This lake is home to crocodiles and two weeks ago, I lost my Boston terrier to the same fate, she says.
Sterrenberg immediately called Dr. Laurie Droke and advised her of the situation, and Ginger was immediately rushed to the newly opened Animal Hospital. Dr. Droke commenced work on Ginger and five hours later she was patched back up. Ginger’s skull had been ripped open, there was a one-inch hole in her diaphragm, both legs suffered bites while a leg on her artery was slashed. Based on the severe wounds and the depth of the gashes, it is ascertained that Ginger was attacked by a crocodile. Due to the excessive blood loss experienced Ginger is lucky to be alive. Ginger’s luck is attributed to the immediate assistance rendered by Dr. Droke. Having bled to death could have been Ginger’s fate but because of the first class treatment received she is on her way to a full recovery. San Pedro Sun
Wil Maheia our borders do exist!
Punta Gorda’s political and social activist, Wil Maheia, leader of the People’s National Party, sent the picture at the side to Amandala, with a letter condemning the statements by Belize Attorney General Wilfred Elrington while at the Organization of American States last week.
Maheia said that he and his supporters went to the border in September and took the picture at Gracias a Dios, where a border marker is, to show Belizeans that our borders exist, and to remind Belizeans that we must take care of our borders, and was appalled by Elrington’s comments to the OAS that our borders with Guatemala were artificial.
Maheia also said that he was skeptical of the role played by the OAS, because while they are acting as mediators, the illegal incursions by Guatemalans have continued unabated. Amandala
