Mrs.Verla Jex, Principal, and E. Jahmoor Lopez, Local Manager for Primary Schools also had praise for the graduates and words of wisdom. The Mistress of Ceremonies was Ms. Janine Tillett.
Daniella Lightburn delivered the Valedictory address. The other top students for the 2009-2010 graduating class were Jaaziniah Wade, Jasmine Lauriano and Jessica Gillett.
The Crooked Tree Village Reunion Committee in the US and Belize regret to announce that the previously scheduled date of May 27th, 28th and 29th, 2011 for our 2nd reunion has been rescheduled to Easter2011; April22nd, 23rd and 24th.
For the past few years, the rainy season in Belize have been starting about mid-May which makes it very inconvenient to schedule activities during the Reunion festivities. The planning Committee has decided that since Easter falls into the dry season it would be the most appropriate time to schedule the reunion celebrations. This would afford us a better quality time for family and friends in Belize and abroad who are planning to attend the Reunion.
Reunion is a time to reminisce with family and friends, enjoy food, fun and fellowship.
We look forward to making this reunion another unforgettable event!
JAMES ALEXANDER NEHEMIAH RHABURN 105 Years Old- HAPPY BIRTHDAY:DEC 31, 2009
JAMES WITH SOME OF HIS CHILDREN:(L-R)GENEVIEVE, EVAN, ELSWITH AND WINCY
THE OLDEST MAN LIVING TODAY IN CROOKED TREE VILLAGE AND POSSIBLY BELIZEwas born in the final moments of 1904, as roosters in Revenge Mahogany and Logwood Works were crowing in the New Year. Mary Jones Rhaburn gave birth to her fifth child, and third son, the one chosen to bear his father’s name – James Rhaburn – on December 31, 1904. In those days, the itinerant ministers (pastors) traveled circuits to attend the needs of the members of their congregation in their homes. It wasn’t until late in 1911 that one such minister visited the Rhaburn family in Revenge and had a mass christening service. On the 17th November, 1911 James, by then just short of his seventh birthday, was christened along with two younger siblings – Iris (3 years) and Mary (6 months) – and four cousins, namely Ada for his Uncle Jonathan Rhaburn who was born in February 1902 and Alberta (3 years), Benjamin (17 months) and Isaac (11 weeks) for his Uncle Elijah.
The Planning Committee of the Crooked Tree Village Reunion would like to extend Holiday Greetings to All of you and your loved ones. We pray that 2010 will be filled with Joy, peace, good health and prosperity.

CROOKED TREE POLICE STATION BEFORE THE DESTRUCTION BY FIRE
THE DAY THE CROOKED TREE POLICE STATION BURNT DOWN
FEBRUARY 10, 2010
No homeowner wants to be on the list kept by Code Enforcement Officers for a house deemed uninhabitable, but Crooked Tree Village does not have Code Enforcement Officers, and the house I am speaking about is the Crooked Tree Village Police Station.
This morning the villagers of Crooked Tree woke up to a smoldering Police Station. The deplorable Police Station was burned down by unknown arsonists who fled the scene.
For many years now the Crooked Tree Police Station has been literally falling down. For many years the village has been promised a new building by the government of Belize, but it remains just that, a promise.
FAREWELL- SIR BARRY BOWEN
Sunrise: September 19th 1945 Sunset:February 26, 2010
The Crooked Tree Village Reunion and the Villagers of Crooked Tree Village would like to express deepest sympathy and heartfelt condolences to the Bowen family on the death of Sir Barry Bowen.
May the divine hand of God give you perfect rest; and may the Lord strengthen your family as they go through this time of bereavement.
On August 6th, 2009 Bowen & Bowen and Kevin Bowen, the son of Sir Barry Bowen, donated a beautiful new sign to welcome visitors and friends to Crooked Tree Village.
Sir Barry Bowen was born in Belize on September 19th, 1945. His ancestors arrived in what was then British Honduras, from Britain and France in the 1700’s. He grew up in Belize and was sent to boarding school in the U.K., but left the United Kingdom for college in the U.S.A., where he graduated from Cornell University in New York State at the age 20.
Those of you that have been to Crooked Tree Village lately may have noticed that the "Welcome To Crooked Tree" sign was in poor condition.
Well, thanks to arrangements by Mick and Angela Crawford Webb, and donations from Kevin Bowen and Bowen&Bowen the village is now sporting a beautiful new sign. Photo by: Clarence Tillett-August 6, 2009
WATER SYSTEM FOR CROOKED TREE VILLAGE:INAUGURATION DEC 19, 2009
THE INAUGURATION OF CROOKED TREE VILLAGE WATER SYSTEM
It seems that every few months we hear news of another rural community inaugurating a village water system. But long at last, this time its Crooked Tree’s turn to taste the flow of water from a brand new water system. All the media are invited to attend the inauguration of the newly constructed Crooked Tree Water System on Saturday, December 19th 2009, at 10:00 a.m. The inauguration will take place in the Staine Area of Crooked Tree. Crooked Tree Village is situated 34 miles from Belize City, three miles off the Northern Highway.
It is now the end of the Summer in Belize. Although the days are still hot, they are becoming shorter, and the evenings are getting cooler. This is the time of the year that we happily say goodbye to the dry and hot weather and welcome the hopefully rainy and cooler season.
In the Bible it says: If ye walk in My statutes, and keep My commandments, and do them; then I will give you rains in their season, and the land shall yield her produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. (Leviticus 26:3-4)
The land of Belize depends very much on rains that fall in their season. We wish and pray for the right amount of rain to fall. This is the time of the year that rains help our agricultural products.

By now, most of us have heard about the devastating flood condition in Belize, caused by a Tropical Depression. As a result, Crooked Tree Village has been terribly affected by this flooding creating a crisis for our people. The causeway is under 3 feet of water and it is anticipated that the water will rise another couple feet causing even more devastation. This has been the worst flooding in the Country of Belize in the last 30 years. Read More
BELIZEAN PATRIOT: LEIGH RICHARDSON
BELIZEANS IN NEW YORK PAY RESPECT TO ONE OF OUR PATRIOTS
Leigh Richardson Jr. died in New York City on Monday, October 27, 2008. He is survived by his wife, Eva and their nine children; three sisters Olive, Norma and Gloria; two brothers, Desmond and Keith along with a host of nieces and nephews.
Leigh Richardson was a Belizean hero to many. He was a patriot, who sacrificed much for the love of his country. He left behind a rich political history. He passionately fought colonialism, and was even imprisoned in 1951 along with Philip Goldson for charges of sedition brought against them by the authorities. He was co-founder of the Belize Billboard and held leadership position in the People’s Committee. READ MORE
(L_R) Verona Burks, Western VP for Consortium for Belizean Dev.,Inc, Merve Hendy, Coordinator, Jason Jones,Athlete-200 meter, Honorable Roland York, Consul General of Belize in Los Angeles, Fred Westby, Taekwondo Instructor, and Tricia Flores, Athlete- Long Jump
For The Want of a Belizean Flag
When the Belize Olympic team passed through Los Angeles on their way to Beijing, for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games, the Belizean community certainly looked forward to hosting them during the brief layover. Preparations were made and a welcome delegation consisting of Consul General Roland Yorke, Mr. Merve Hendy, Mr. Fred Westby, Ms. Verona Burks and Ms. Kim Hernandez were in place; but regrettably no athletes were in sight.
After about two hours of unsuccessful sightings, Consul General Roland Yorke took matters into his own hands. Accompanied by Mr. Hendy, they proceeded to try and track the athletes through the airlines. After some diplomatic maneuverings, Air China reluctantly agreed to page via intercom two of the names they were given. Simultaneously, other members of the delegation worked on airport officials and individual passengers to get word to the athletes. After about 20 minutes, Jayson Jones and Tricia Flores emerged in the check in area.
Flores and Jones were excited to meet the small delegation. They explained they were unaware of the layover plans that included the welcoming party. Both displayed much enthusiasm and were genuinely eager to speak about their expectations in Beijing.
Jones, who resides in Florida, will be participating in the two hundred meter race. And explained he ran his qualifying race in Florida. He is heading to the Olympics with a 20.70 seconds time, which is the current record holding time for Belize. The 30-year old has high expectations for a good performance. He previously represented Belize in international races at the 2004 Olympics, the 2003 Pan American Games and the 2001 World Games.
28 year old Trisha Flores lives and trains in Belize. She will represent Belize in the Long Jump competition. She is the current Belize record holder in long jump with a 5.96 meters jump distance. She is an educator at NazarenePrimary School and a student at the University of Belize.Her focus is Primary Education. Flores is looking forward to and is excited about her Olympic appearance as well.
Flores and Jones provided information about the other athletes; Jonathan Williams of Los Angeles who will be performing in the 400 meter hurdles is a Belize record holder for that event. There is also Alfonso Martinez who will be representing Belize in Taekwondo. He lives and trains in Taiwan.
Unlike the confusion surrounding the meeting of the delegation that included the athletes, two nights earlier when the two Belizean students representing Belize at the Olympic Youth Camp were in transit via Los Angeles, things were more organized. Ryan Zuniga and Kara Kisling, both eighteen, wore their Olympic jerseys and carried the Belizean flag. T he Consul General and Mr. Hendy also had a Belizean flag so it was easy for the delegates to be identified and, consequently retrieved from the airport; Recognition was incredibly instantaneous. If only there was a Belizean flag present in the delegation carrying the athletes that night, the reception would have been less hectic.
Both students spent their layover at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Merve Hendy. They were able to unwind, eat, nap and prepare, for the ten-hour flight to China. We bade them adieu and good luck.
Kisling and Zuniga submitted essays/resumes about their involvement in Belizean sports to win the honor to travel to China. They were both looking forward to the visit and expected to visit the games, see the sites of China and interact with others attending the youth camp.
The Belize delegation to the 2008 Summer Olympic Games is made up of fourteen people; four athletes, two youth camp participants and eight officials and attendants. All attended the opening ceremonies. Belizeans around the world tuned in for the opening ceremonies and watched with great pride as Jonathon Williams proudly carried the Belizean Flag.

It defines and maintains the threatened music of the Garifuna community - from Belize, Honduras and Guatemala - by treasuring and respecting their traditions, but within a modern context. Read more
