    Por Carlos Gasca
     Gilberto Ávalos Galué, representative for the State Department of Education and Culture, said there is a proposal to open a Workers Training Center (CECATI) in Isla Mujeres, that will teach classes continuously and not only occasionally. Courses that could be offered include Tourism (Hotel & Restaurant), Computers, Automotive mechanics, English, Gastronomy, and others.
        The official said they will seek ways to use existing facilities for the classes, such as the Middle School and the Community Plaza facilities, and they will involve local hoteliers who also offer their own facilities for the courses. He said, "In this way, any worker who is interested in obtaining training can finish with a certificate in any specialization without having to leave the island."

Daily Update: Hey I forgot to give you the breakdown. It was 56 dogs (30 females, 26 males) and 36 cats (28 females, 8 males) and three re-stitchings. So now you have to meet my new beautiful dog, Mildred. She came in during the clinic. She’d been living in the street but did have an owner in the loosest possible meaning of the word “owner”. She was covered with mats, and even though Eileen did her magic (sorry Eileen) it isn’t pretty. She had tons of ticks, is very thin and has ehrlichia but we’re on it. She was nervous and a little nippy when she first arrived but has done a complete turn around and just wants more of that TLC that she’s never had. I think she is part poodle and part dachshund, definitely a low rider, my favorite. I have her in the courtyard with Golda and Brad, they are good company. I have also updated my adoption page on the Isla Animals web site, have a look. Don’t forget to vote.

Hi Moms and Dads! (Aunts, Uncles and Grandparents, too!) We would love to make these T-Shirts available in kids sizes, but we need your help to see if we will get enough definite sales once they are available. We need 10 to be able to go ahead and print! Please comment below with the design you will (definitely!) purchase. A or B, or Both. Please know: We were disappointed to learn that there is no price difference in T-Shirt Kid sizes vs. Adult sizes. Hoodies, however, are $1.00 less. We sincerely apologize! Remember that these Tees are Limited Edition. Once the Feature Period is over they will be gone forever! Thank you so much for your amazing support!
