Optimistic response to Gov. Borge's message
EDUCACIÓN0 11 de septiembre de 2013
Por Carlos Gasca > Quequi The Governor gave a televised message of goodwill, and said he seeks to establish a dialogue with the teachers, while respecting their need for job security and seniority. He said he is hoping to get the teachers back to school quickly, without disrupting their rights, so the children of the state can obtain an quality education. He guaranteed that public schools will not be privatized and that infrastructure will be improved. He plans to implement measures to protect teachers from losing their jobs with the education reform.

Dump trucks blocking the intermunicipal landfill (on the mainland)
The director of SIRESOL, WIlberth Esquivel, confirmed that dump trucks are blocking the access to the inter-municipal landfill in mainland Isla Mujeres. This is said to be because their company, Contenedores y Más, (Containers & More) are owed 20 million pesos, according to the radio program Turquesa. The money is owed by SIRESOL, and Esquivel said he will begin talks with the goal of ending the blockade, which could exacerbate the problem of garbage collection in Cancun. (That is also where trash from the island is taken.)
