Making San Pedro The Number One Island in The World

This gentleman is standing on the street between Fido’s and Manelly’s Building and as you look beyond there is the Lion’s Den and Island Plaza.  To the right is Chico Gomez’s Coral Beach Hotel. Even farther down is Pete Salazar’s home and the office of Pete’s Enterprises, and Malak’s Hardware Store and Traveler’s to the left. Of course, that is not what you see today because this Flashback takes us back in the 1980’s with sandy streets and patches of grass with paths cut through empty lots at the corners. Surprisingly we do not see a full clothesline or a dog lying on the cool sand.  The young man is Jim Titheridge carrying in his arms a young Moses Arzu, half brother of Joseph Eligio, our past Deputy Mayor.  Everybody falls in love with San Pedro and Ambergris Caye and all of this leads to our being The Number One island in the World.
