Rumors about Basketball Court in Boca del Rio

According to sources the basket ball court and adjoining land has been sold to a foreigner. The AD cannot believe that this is true as many people contributed to building this park for the good of the local children. It has also become a very safe place  for parents to leave their children.

Investigations will continue.

Splat,Jager and Jambo’s Weather Report for San Pedro 27.5.17

Well I and the dogs are happy as it it is overcast and cool. It is unlikely that we will see any sun but it is a nice change for a cat like me. I think today i will put on my glad rags and show off to those useless dogs who will never understand style and panache.

The boss is moody as his football team -in his words-the magnificent Arsenal FC are playing in a teacup (I think),and he does not think that they will win which means he will be complaining about a Wenger-strange man but on the positive side he does feed me.

Do Foreigners need Work Permits in Belize

A popular,and often  asked question, is do we need work permits as we are from the first world and we really want to stay in Belize but need an income to afford to do so.

The answer is categorically yes but some of the newer unopened resorts do not think that this is the case.They use the excuse we are not open yet and therefore the spa,restaurants etc are not really open and therefore the foreign workers do not need permits.

A foreigner (i.e. someone non-Belizean) can get a work permit,residency or nationality but all take various amounts of time, and during this they cannot work (paid or unpaid) until their application has been accepted by the GOB. People can,of course,without any permits invest in businesses but cannot take part in the day to day running of these enterprises.

The AD trusts that this explanation is as clear as mud.

Well it is a little fuzzy and I am hoping that the grey skies will burn off and we will see the deep blue of yesterday.
On a personal note I want those horrible dogs to go to the beach and leave me and my friends alone.

Update on Mahogany Bay

The Ambergris Daily can confirm that the rumors that there is a  “Cease and Desist”order from the Hilton group on this resort is totally false,and that it is currently in good standing with the Hilton Curio Collection.

People are still asking why it has taken so long to open. Just think of the investors who put their money into the scheme three or four years ago and have yet to see a brass farthing from their investment,and as yet have no official opening date.
