Water taxi war in San Pedro Town

Information is still sketchy but The San Pedro Sun has confirmed that the San Pedro Belize Express Water Taxi and the Caye Caulker Water Taxi have both changed docking locations. The sudden change came after internal problems within the San Pedro Belize Express Water Taxi led to Giovanni Marin pulling out of the cooperation and joining the Caye Caulker Water Taxi.
In speaking briefly with The Sun, Marin stated that the current users of San Pedro Belize Express will have to find a new name for their water taxi, since that name is registered under his name. Marin stated that he is willing to challenge it in court. For the time being, members of the San Pedro Police Department have been dispatch to both water taxies to prevent a confrontation. The San Pedro Sun will have full details in this week issue of the newspaper.

SAGA Calendars launched at The Lime!

The boys and girls of the 2010 SAGA calendar were on hand to greet friends and fans during the official launch of said calendar. Food and drink, plus calendars with beautiful shots of pets and their owners (shot by Conch Creative) were also on sale. Naturally, attendees were eager to get their own signed copy!!
Thanks to everyone for their support and to Lime for hosting this event. The fundraiser was held as part of the FOTHS' (Friends Of The Humane Society) generous contributions to the SAGA society of San Pedro.
Even Miss Belize World's delegate Letty Lara (fresh off her big win in Corozal) stopped by to lend her support!
