THINKING OUT LOUD

By Mayor Kevin Bernard Friday, April 26, 2019 As a politician who grew up with role models like Father of the Nation George Price, who put the people of Belize, and service to the people of Belize way above himself, I have tried to respect all persons. For me, and the people of Orange Walk […]

THINKING OUT LOUD

By Kevin Bernard, Mayor of Orange Walk Town Thursday, March 7, 2019 As a community, we are still reeling after the murder of Dwayne Cummings, a star in our community, a young man with his entire life ahead of him, with so much potential. There has been no justice for his murder. In fact, many […]

By: Kevin Bernard All discussions and debates these days seem to be about the upcoming referendum, and the advisability of going to the International Court of Justice. I like it.

Thinking Out Loud

By: Kevin Bernard As I write this, we are coming to the end of 2018, and we prepare for whatever the New Year will bring. Many of us are setting goals, as we do every year. Some of us will want to lose weight, or gain weight. Others will resolve to stop drinking, or to […]

Thinking Out Loud

By: Kevin Bernard As I sit here in Town Hall writing this, I am filled with different emotions. That’s usually the case at Christmas time. This is the time when we reflect and remember, make plans and goals and hold on to what is important in life. I remember, with some sadness, my friend Carl […]

Thinking Out Loud

By: Kevin Bernard We are getting right into the Christmas season, which rivals September for my favourite time of the year, for different reasons.
