 The final game of the Liga del Tecnológico was played on Sunday, with the two teams from Isla Mujeres competing for the 2016 championship, at the Pescadores stadium. This is the first time in more than 30 years that two Isla Mujeres teams are competing for the title. The Pescadores were the first to get on the scoreboard with two runs. In the fifth inning there was a pitching duel. During the fifth inning, the bases were full, with no outs, when Jairo Venegas hit a grounder ('una rola') toward third, but the players on the bases thought it was going to be a foul ball, however, it was a ball in play. This resulted in a triple play against the Cockteleros, and in the end the Pescadores won 2 to 0.

Trash collection worker seriously injured  
Muy grave y abandonado por el ayuntamiento. [+] Ver mas Full article & photo at this link
      A trash collection worker, Misael Velazquez, fell from the trash truck when they were working in Sac Bajo on Saturday afternoon, hitting his head against the pavement. The neighbor who assisted his wife with the transport to a mainland hospital said, "Misael Velazquez is not insured and doesn't have Seguro Popular, and there was no official to assist in having him admitted to a private hospital. He was taken to the  Cancun hospital "Jesus Kumate Rodriguez", where a neurosurgeon saw him, finally, at two in the morning, only to say there is nothing they could do."
       The Director of Public Services, Manuel Figueroa Cetina, went over to see the patient, and remains close to the wife of the injured man. No official statement has been released.
    Misael Velazquez was working on the three ton trash collection truck in Sac Bajo, whose crew was allegedly under pressure to finish the route quickly because there are only two of this type of trucks to serve the island, and two other trucks of the type "Estaquitas", with two of these vehicles out of service recently, allegedly due to lack of maintenance.  A neighbor said, "I thought the workers were going too fast and that something could go wrong." Another person said, "It appears that when they went over a speed bump, the 'hop' (brinco) caused the worker to fall and hit his head on the pavement. He started bleeding from his head and his nose, and the Red Cross ambulance arrived shortly."
      A former trash collection employee wrote in Facebook complaining about the unsafe conditions and lack of protective equipment such as gloves, masks, and goggles. He said with a salary of 1700 to 2000 pesos, they have to collect cans and iron in order to have enough to eat. He said he was once stabbed by a syringe when tossing a trash bag, and the City often does not supply gloves.
       The reporter talked to neighbors of the injured man. The family lives upstairs, in colonia Meteorologica, on prolongation Jesus Martinez Ross. The neighbors said Misael Velazquez is about 52 years old, and has two young children (hijos menores) and two grown children. One said his wife had no money to cross on Saturday to go see her husband, commenting, "I gave her 1000 pesos which the municipal authorities will return to me later."

 AA group "Hope in my life" will celebrate 20 years in Isla Mujeres  
Cumple 20 años AA “Una Esperanza en mi vida”e.. [+] Ver mas Full article and photo at this link
   The Isla Mujeres Alcoholics Anonymous group, "Una Esperanza en mi vida" will celebrate its 20th anniversary on June 10th when the AA movement, founded in the US will celebrate its 81st anniversary. The local group will have an informational event at the Blue Dome at 7pm with an artistic festival.
       AA has more that 14,000 groups in Mexico and 120,000 worldwide to help with rehabilitation from alcohol and drug addiction, using the principle of "sponsorship" and the Twelve Steps, Twelve Traditions, and Twelve Concepts of World Service.
        The reporter interviewed a woman named Lila R., who does not live in Isla Mujeres. She came to spend some time with her family, and took this opportunity to share her experience for the benefit of other women. She recommended following the Twelve steps, reading the Blue Book, and sticking with someone who has experience, practices the principles, and "lives the program."
           She joined AA in 1983, after quitting drinking for six months. She was disappointed that her family and economic problems continued, as well as being unemployed and depressed. She said she found help from following the steps and reading the Blue Book ( the basic text for AA), and accepting her illness and God, which led to a process of self analysis and catharsis to reconcile with the past and restore relationships, as well as to share this message about life and finding peace within yourself. 
    According to statistics, in Mexico there are about 10 men in AA to every woman, while in the US women represent about a third or less of the participants.

From Isla Mujeres Hoy (link to their FB page)
 The Mexican Navy rescued a yacht named "Il Padrino" (the godfather) near Isla Mujeres. It was flying an American flag, and was adrift without propulsion on the open seas. The rescue took place on April 25 after the Navy received a call reporting that the "Il Padrino" had suffered engine failure, with two crew members aboard, one of Mexican nationality and one of American nationality, who were adrift 126 nautical miles (234 km) from Isla Mujeres.
    The Navy activated search and rescue activities, and the Ocean Patrol PO-163 "ARM Independencia" located the vessel. For four days, they stayed in the immediate vicinity of the boat to provide shelter, and custody, as well as giving food and medical care to the crew, who were awaiting a towing boat, which was en route. Then the boat was towed to its country of origin.

  The sister city agreement was signed between the Mayor of St Petersburg, Florida, Rick Kriseman and the Mayor of Isla Mujeres, Agapito Magana Sanchez. I already translated this info about the events of Friday evening, where the participants in the Regatta were named as Distinguished Guests, awards were handed out, the winner of the children's logo contest was named, and Keys to the City were given to Mr Kriseman, in addition to the signing of the Sister City agreement.

    On Saturday, there was a good turnout of visitors at the beach, and before noon there were a large number of boats bringing visitors from the mainland, as well as recreational boats. There were no problems reported by the police, security guards, or lifeguards, and the latter were busy keeping people inside the buoys, where they are safe from passing boats.
   On land, hundreds of golf carts crowded the main streets of the island, especially Rueda Medina. At time the smaller streets became congested. There were also many scooters parked along the streets. There are business owners who complain about customers needing better access, and they would like more parking spaces created, for example at the area of the former Hospital Integral.
    Government employees will enjoy a long weekend (a puente) next weekend, with Monday off for Dia de Madres (which is Tuesday, May 10th). Families are expected to come to the island to enjoy the weekend, judging by the hotel reservations. However, occupancy has been below 50 percent at the small and medium sized hotels.
     On weekends, there are officers at checkpoints on the two roads leading to and from downtown, going southward to the rest of the isle.

Missing for a month  
Un mes desaparecidos[+] Ver mas Photos & full article at this link

  A Mass was held on Friday afternoon, which was organized by the families of the fishermen who disappeared after they departed on March 30 in the 33 foot long boat, "Anastacia". The Mass was held in honor of Jorge Fernando de la O Avalos “Pipis”, Marco Antonio Bardales Pastrana “Vampiro”, Alfonso Jiménez Torres “Chatilly”, Rusel Pech Cemé “Curro” and Humberto Constantino Ordaz “Beto” at the Caridad del Cobre church in the colonia of Miraflores at 7pm. The relatives said they are still searching on their own, and still hoping to find the missing men.
       The missing men left to go fishing near Punta Molas Cozumel, and their last radio communication was on March 31. So far nothing is known of their whereabouts. There was unprecedented popular support, which pressured the three levels of government to maintain the search well beyond the statutory 96 hours.
    During the first week, the search included the Gulf of Mexico,  the coasts of Mexico and the United States, near Florida. Searches were made in Cuban waters and in the Caribbean. The coastal areas of Quintana Roo and the Yucatan were combed repeatedly.
        During their routine activities, the Naval fleet will continue to seek the five missing men indefinitely, in coordination with the Harbor Masters, and the family. Since the initial days, voluntary donations have been collected to fund the search, and this continues, keeping hope alive.
    At the church, prayers were given thanking the Creator for the help of the people who have used social networks to share information and provide assistance.

Final game of the Tecnologica Baseball League

  The final game in this regional league will take place between two island teams on Sunday at 1pm at the El Pescador baseball field when the Cockteleros will face off against the Pescadores. The manager of the Cocktelero team, Jorge Fernando de la O Pino invited the community of islanders and foreign residents to enjoy this duel. There will be surprises, such as the cheerleaders from the national baseball team Tigres de Quintana Roo. Many people plan to attend with their friends and to eat at the ballpark.


Motorcycle collides with truck: Causes injuries  
Moto contra camión; un lesionado [+] Ver mas Photo & full article at this link

April 29
       Early Thursday morning, a motorcyclist suffered multiple fractures and was immediately transported to a hospital in Cancun, after colliding with a trash truck which had broken down along a dark stretch of road in colonia Salina Chica.
       Francisco Castro Turriza was traveling from south to north on the street near the Chiapaneco neighborhood at ~5am, on his way to work at the Maritime Terminal. The trash truck had broken down, presumably from a lack of maintenance, and the rear lights were not lit. Initial versions indicate the motorcycle driver could not see the obstacle in the road because an oncoming car did not dim their lights just as he was dangerously close to the parked vehicle.
         A source at the terminal reported that his wife said preparations were being made for an operation on one of his legs in that afternoon, in Cancun. Preliminary reports indicate he fractured an arm and a foot.
         Sr. Turriza Castro is a formal City official, serving as Municipal Trustee more than 20 years ago and is a former leader of the taxi drivers. His gray and white Honda scooter can be seen in the Police impound yard where its front structure and frame are damaged and it appears to be totaled. At 9am, after the accident, the trash vehicle was still parked at the scene.
