 The Mayor initiated meetings in the Council room to hear the concerns, requests, and proposals of citizens. In this case, there were residents of colonia La Gloria, who brought up a variety of issues, ranging from personal requests to matters of collective interest. One woman requested use of a location where she had sold souvenirs for years, and there were requests for 'regularization' of property. There were complaints and concerns about vendors who come from Cancun, several job requests, a permission request from a person who wants to make a living singing, a plan concerning a fishing cooperative, a request for medical help for a surgery, and a request for aid to kids at a soccer school. Residents of Isla Blanca and Punta Sam (mainland Isla Mujeres municipality) came to discuss various issues, including advertising on the avenue. The reporter anticipates there will be a timely and efficient response.

An estimated 2000 people attended the parade.

Better tourism promotion needed
Necesario tener mejor promoción turística[+] Ver mas
Hoteliers and restaurateurs have sent a request to state authorities seeking reactivation of the Tourism Promotional Agency, and and asking for increased promotion of the island. It has been learned that there is an intention to bundle Isla Mujeres in with the Tourism Promotional Agency of Cancun, but many Island businesses want their own autonomy as a tourism destination, with the island's own promotional agency. They want promotions that attract overnight visitors, particularly those who stay for more than a week.

Invitation to celebrate Naval Day
Invitan a celebrar el Día de la Armada[+] Ver mas
More that a thousand people are expected to participate in this celebration which will include demonstrations of the interceptor patrols and coastal vessels, and of Naval personnel. The Governor is expected to attend the formal ceremony. This is the first demonstration of this type in Isla Mujeres and is expected to be a great show. It will begin on Saturday at 11am, and is free of charge. The fallen heroes will be remembered, and there will be commemoration of the forming of the Navy to expel Spanish troops who refused to recognize the independence of Mexico.

Bringing in outside seafood
Traen pescados y mariscos de fuera[+] Ver mas
With demand increasing at restaurants and marinas, seafood is being shipped in from Cancun and Progresso on ferries and boats. The Isla fishermen have had low catches and therefore low sales, with recent rains from cold fronts. These outside orders represent a 30 percent loss of business to the Isla Mujeres cooperatives, and some of them do not have seafood in their freezers.

Boat ambulance: Retained
Ambulancia marítima, retenida+] Ver mas

The boat ambulance has been at a workshop in Puerto Juarez for two and a half months, where it was taken to obtain the modification and adaptation required to provide emergency services on board. It has been learned the current delay is associated with a lack of payment by the state government. The boat ambulance was promised a year and a half ago, then delivery was delayed, then there was a lack of medical equipment and required documents for operation,  and for various reasons it has never become operational. The date when it will go into service is unknown.

Dianne  I thought they could be very mean too (they bite).

Kathy There are 2 very tame tejons in the jungle over by the new church. They come right up because the kids feed them candy. They do have sharp claws though and I would be careful to not get scratched or bitten by them.

Tiffany  We love Tejons. They are so adorable! We are always looking for them on the South end ever since Julie  told us she has them in her back yards! We have only spotted them once & it was a whole family crossing the road by Casa Musica! It was very exciting for the munchkins!

The women design & create clothing, bags & other handmade items. They have incorporated local skills such as embroidery & lace making on modern designs.

Daily Update: Today’s the day. Guapo’s having surgery at 12 noon. Also Vanilla is still there so she’s having her leg fixed as well. I will let you all know how it goes. We are up to $835.00 for Guapo’s operation and are still hoping to reach that $2,500.00 goal, Arturo will - as always - generously wait to be paid. He does so much for us, we’re lucky to have him. So please keep sharing this link I just know that if people knew they could help with a small donation, they would. Also there has been so much going on I didn’t do my before and after. This is Clemente, you might remember him from last year, he was in a repulsive back yard with two other dogs and no food or water unless someone else, not the owner, put some in there for them. His growth was stunted and he had a nasty wound on the top of his head. We thought he was about four months old but it turned out that he was over 8 months, maybe more. Than Sheila swooped in and took him home, she just loved him the moment she saw him, and he wasn’t pretty. She says he’s the smartest dog that she’s ever had and I believe it because he would have to be to survive as long as he did in the situation that we found him in. I want to thanks Susan for bringing our monthly donations up to $1,415.00. Keep sharing - we can do this and make a huge difference.
Isla Animals  Here is Clemente after. What a lucky guy.
