By Aaron Humes: Yesterday’s story about the Rural Eastern Division’s “Silent Santa” giveaway on the Philip Goldson Highway struck a chord with Belizeans, some of whom were disappointed they did not get a blue note from Senior Superintendent Edward Broaster and his officers.
Unfortunately, that is the extent of this year’s handout as Broaster says the $2,000 they handed out yesterday is “done” and they have no more.
But residents of the Rural need not fear, as the Police have hit on another way to reward residents for their cooperation with the Department.
It involves a combination of agriculture and community development, as residents will be encouraged to plant their own crops for self-sustainability and to be judged in a harvest by the Ministry of Agriculture.
