Shortly after 9:00 p.m. a single gunshot rang out in the Tres Cocos Area in Ambergris Caye. When police officials arrived at the scene around 10:00 p.m. the body of Lionel Aldana was found dead from a single gunshot wound. The body was transported to the San Pedro Police Department.

Initial police investigations reveal that two men were returning to town from hunting on the northern end of the island when upon reaching the Tres Cocos vicinity a log was seen lying in the middle of the road. The driver stopped the vehicle and got out to investigate. It is alleged that two masked men came out of hiding and the driver, fearing for his life, fired a single gunshot from his licensed gun. Investigations continue into the incident but reliable sources have confirmed that the driver is an employee of the San Pedro Town Council.

    One of the joys of traveling to a foreign land is discovering the local wildlife. Common birds seen daily here on La Isla Bonita can be a new and exotic experience for a visitor, and although the residents might not think twice when one of these winged wonders grace the sky a tourist may be sent scrambling for his camera! Chances are you won’t have to look far for these Caribbean creatures and a walk on the beach will almost guarantee the sight of Brown Pelicans, Frigate birds, Great  Blue Herons, seagulls and sandpipers to name a few. The cooing songs of the White-winged Doves are a constant lullaby while Great Kiskadee sing“Quest-ce-que dit” and Tropical Mockingbirds go through their repertoire of twills and tweets. Together their constant chorus is an age old tropical song that fills the air throughout the day.


    Perhaps you have wondered just who these feathered friends are? Let The San Pedro Sun take the opportunity to acquaint you with these resident birds who call San Pedro home.

Last year’s exchange program was a great success that this year, 17 students from the University of North Carolina arrived in La Isla Bonita in order to finalize their teaching certifications. Arriving from our sister city, Wilmington, North Carolina, USA, for the next few weeks, the students will be engaging with elementary and high school students on the island in order to acquire teaching skills needed to finalize their teaching certification. Well received by both students and teachers, Professor Dennis Kubasko, who is accompanying the group, says that, “this is just the beginning of a great exchange program where both countries will benefit.”

The students are engaging in 15 weeks of training, ten were held in the USA while the other five will take place on Ambergris Caye. Training is taking place at San Pedro High School, Isla Bonita Elementary and Ambergris Caye Elementary School.
