On Friday night around midnight taxi #64 hit a scooter. The article says the taxi driver made a reckless maneuver, near the gas station, while traveling from south to north and entering the gas station, trying to "beat the moto". The motorcycle was black without plates driven by forty year old waiter,  Everardo Javier Medina Sepúlveda, and the taxi was driven by Juan Alexis González Estrada, 20, of Chiapas. Both drivers went to the Public Security building to make an agreement about the damage to the motorcycle, and if they fail to come to an agreement, it will be turned over to the Public Ministry to determine responsibilities.

Continue to investigate fire in Salina Chica

Continúan investigando incendio en Salina Chica

0 06 de julio de 2013

Por Carlos Gasca-Quequi.-.  State Police Commander,  Arturo Enrique Medina Parra, said they are continuing to investigate the cause of the fire in Salina Chica which ended the life of  foreigner  Allman Caroll Porter, 63,  and two of his pets. Experts arrived last week to investigate the causes of the fire and causes of the injuries to the deceased. According to preliminary analysis, it was presumed that the foreigner was injured by an explosion from the stove. The Commander said there was a gas tube passing behind the refrigerator and the roof had indications of a golpe provocado  ( provoked impact/hit), probably from the stove. His remains were given to his wife, Linda Jean Wosack, 63, who had been traveling to the United States on the day of the fire.

  1. Happy you are back!

  2. Thanks! We were missing being connected! CFE put up a new electrical post just north of us, with advance notification & only a morning's interruption of services. Several days later a coupla Cablemas trucks showed up & disconnected our Cable-WIFI service, leaving the lines secured to a tree, and departed. I started making daily calls, and The Neighbours visited the office a coupla times, and yesterday within an hour after arriving, the techs had us back online. Generally our WIFI service is very good, but sometimes the company is known as Cablemas o menos. (Cable...more or less)
