Employee died after Carnaval: Apparently from a heart attack

Fallece empleado después del Carnaval

Al parecer de un infarto

  After enjoying the festivities of Carnival, but apparently without receiving ashes (for Ash Wednesday),  José Albertico Méndez Rayón, 31, city employee, died early yesterday morning inside his home, in colonia Canotal, apparently as the result of a cardiac arrest, confirmed the Municipal Police.
  The news of the death of this man known as "Yorchy" caused shock, because during Carnival he had been happy and participating actively. At Tuesdays 'Negrada' he was dressed as a baby, without imagining that hours later he would lay down to sleep and not wake up. He was married and had worked for the City for several years, in the department of Public Services.
   It is noted that he had diabetes, hypertension, and heart problems, which ultimately caused his death. It is also mentioned that during the administration of Manuela Godoy Gonzalez, this young man was riding in a 'camioneta de redilas' , owned by the city, that flipped while moving a troupe participating in Carnaval at that time, but no one was injured.(Manuela Godoy was mayor before Alicia, who was before Hugo, who was our previous Mayor. They serve three year terms.)

Tomorrow: Tigres vs Pescadores

As part of their prepartaion before the start of the season of the Mexican Baseball League, the Tigres of Quintana Roo will play an exhibition game against the Isla Mujeres Pescadores on Saturday, starting at 1pm, at the stadium "El Pescador" (across from Chedraui). The Pescadores have already started preparing to face this team which won the national tournament, which will be a difficult match. The Tigres plan to hold exhibition games in other municipalities. The Mayor has asked the public to fill the stadium and show their support, and to have a celebration for these athletes.

Port closed

Due to effects of strong winds of northern front: To prevent mishaps

The port was closed at noon by the Harbormaster to boats under 40 feet in length, due to strong winds from the north at 30-40 km with gusts to 50km/hr. It is noted this restriction may continue for 48 hours due to the entrance of the Northern front, which causes a change of the wind direction, blowing from the south-southeast.Changing wind directions generally provokes intense rains, causing flooding in some areas of the island. Accumulations of rainwater were detected, apparently where the sewer grates are in poor condition, causing an accumulation of trash at the entrance to the drains. City workers complained about  problems at areas where residents have allowed tree branches and trash to accumulate, which then block the flow of water.
   The boats under 40 feet were also restricted from moving across the bay and in the area of El Farito and the lagoons, and this also affected those of this size that depart from the hotel zone in Cancun.

This agreement, signed by the Mayor, will implement the National Program of English in Basic Education, in municipal schools, with the help of Volunquest. The schools to benefit from this signing are  Andrés Quintana Roo, César Mendoza and Julio Sauri (both morning and afternoon shifts), where a total of 502 students will be learning  the English language. This is an invaluable tool for their future professional development. Isla Mujeres is a pioneer in the state, where school children will learn English simultaneously with the official curriculum. The document guarantees the teaching of English in the classrooms for two  years. It was announced that this pilot project will be brought to schools in the Continental Zone of Isla Mujeres.

Red Cross ambulances: Broken down

  • Unidaes de la Cruz Roja, inservibles


    Unidaes de la Cruz Roja, inservibles

    0 06 de marzo de 2014

    Por Carlos Gasca Isla Mujeres.-
    A woman, who asked that her name be omitted, reported that during her transfer to the hospital by the Red Cross, the ambulance broke down, and the other unit was also broken. A municipal police patrol transported her to the hospital, and her problem was not urgent. The ambulance had broken a belt (I think..un problema al reventarse una banda,), and there were other problems with the fuel pump.
       Now both units are out of order, and the use of the hospital ambulance was sought, until one of the units is repaired. Last week the president of the Red Cross board said the annual collection begins March 19th, and they are seeking to raise resources to cover outstanding payments, as well as to complete maintenance on these units.
