The First and Early JPs of Ambergris Caye

Today there are over one hundred Justices of the Peace in San Pedro. Not so in this flashback which goes back to the 1980’s just after township of San Pedro. In this flashback for the Independence Eve’s midnight flag ceremony, there are only a few up front to salute the flag because there was only a handful of J. P.’s at the time.

Mr. Baldemar Graniel Sr. was a J. P. and also a member of the first Town Council. He later became mayor of San Pedro Town. Mr. Enrique Staines Sr. had been a village council chairman and was an active J.P.  Mr. Efrain Guerrero Sr. had been an early village council chairman and was an active J.P. And finally there was Iraida Staines Gonzalez, J.P.  Mr. Wilfrido “Fido” Nuñez was not present because he had retired and was living in his ranch up the coast. Mr. Abel Guerrero was also absent from the group of village Justices of the Peace. And that was it, my friends. Today the group of J.P.’s covers almost one half of the central park.
