ISLA MUJERES, 25 de septiembre.- Only days before the change of  municipal government, there were lay offs of nearly 300 temporary and contract workers, as well as managers and department heads, leaving a workforce of about 600 employees. The cutting of about one third of the employees was done to minimize the payroll and it included 70 part time workers who cleaned up beaches. There are workers who were hired in temporary jobs who stayed for over five years, and now want their settlement, which is a constitutional right.

ISLA MUJERES, 25 de septiembre.- More than two and a half tonnes of humanitarian aid was delivered yesterday to the DIF in Benito Juarez, by members of the Navy in Isla Mujeres. The DIF, social service agency in Cancun will deliver it to the storm victims. Most of the donations were from naval families, as well as hotels such as Marina Paraiso and the employees there. The group "Mexcio Nuevo" has a collection facility outside the port that is open from 5pm to 10pm accepting canned goods such as tuna, sardines, beans, lentils, rice, soup, pasta, salt, sugar, chile, canned vegs, bouillon. They also want personal hygiene items such as toilet paper, tooth brushes, feminine pads, shampoo, and soap, as well as household cleaning items like brooms, brushes, soap powder, pinol, buckets, and mops. There will be brigades collecting house to house on Saturday. Islanders know what it is like to have a bad experience such as when the town was hit by hurricane "Gilbert" in 1988 and received a great deal of help.

The three collection centers set up yesterday to collect aid for storm victims were suddenly closed right after they set up after the personnel received orders. Later a press release explained this occurred at both a state and municipal level because the organization lacks to equipment to transport items across the roads for the affected destinations that include Tamalipas, Veracruz, Oaxaca, and Guerrero. The Red Cross is still encouraging people to donate at Bancomer account 0404040406 and there is no information if there will be another food collection to offer support to the victims of the storms Ingrid and Manuel.

Aguakan was performing maintenance to the catchment pits in the colonias of Salina Chica and La Gloria to reduce potential flooding with the next rains. Six workers were conducting this dredging work which will improve the drainage of stormwater, because the absorption wells become clogged with debris, trash and silt. This maintenance will reduce the problems of driving through puddled areas after rain.

Isla Animals  Daily Update: This is a fantastic picture. In the front is Gerdy’s mom who had her first chemo treatment and is doing well. In the middle and you can’t really see his face is Mighty Mo, who is the dog that we found with maggots between his toes just hours before he would have been dead. And behind him is Oso, who is owned by the family from a poor part of the island and was so sick. LOOK at him now, he is just plain handsome. If you look closely at the picture both Mighty Mo and Oso have toys in their mouths. It’s one of my favorite things. When the dogs and pups we take in feel better, aren’t afraid and don’t need to put all of their energy into just surviving. They play, like all dogs should, but to see these dogs that have gone through so much playing with toys is a warm wonderful thing. I posted before that Gerdy’s mom has a TVT (sexually transmitted cancerous tumor) but it turns out that our other mom with all the pups has it too. So we will be starting her on chemo therapy as well. We also have two new pups at the rescue so I will post their pictures this week.

Have you ever walked through the cemetery in Centro? It is really beautiful.


HERE is an article that was published yesterday, in English, about the new visitors center for the Underwater Museum MUSA. Eleven new sculptures were added this month...there are about 500 sculptures. One of the sculpture gardens is close to Isla Mujeres and designed for snorkelers. The museum was designed to form an artificial reef, while taking pressure from tourism off the real reef.   HERE is my favorite site about it..from the creator who is also a photographer. Jason deCaires Taylor.
