In the early hours of Monday morning, William Levy & Vanessa Huppenkothen began filming a commercial for potato chips on the beaches of Isla Mujeres. He is a Cuban actor and she is a sports commentator, who participated in Dancing with the Stars. (“Bailando por un Sueño"). It is a one day shoot, that is scheduled to finish at  8pm, and will also include Jessica Segura. They will be using about 300 meters of the beach for their cameras and equipment, and the production.
  When they were choosing a location, they considered destinations in Riviera Mayan Tulum, and Mahahual. When they visited this location, they marveled at the beaches, and decided to make the commercial in Isla Mujeres.This will also be good promotion for the Island.
   There will be just over 100 people involved in the production including cameramen, project managers, and technicians who are staying in hotels. Also involved are the Harbor Master and the Public Safety (police) department to ensure safety in the area of the swimmers, while they are shooting scenes.

    Councilman in charge of Public Security and Transit (police) on the City Council of Isla Mujeres, Adrian  Fuentes Cruz, conducted an interview for the program  "Y los Jóvenes  Qué?", (And the Youths: What?). He acknowledged that the local government has many shortcomings, but said there has been significant progress on several issues, including public safety. He said thanks to financial support and applied strategies, it has been possible to train members of the police force in English and strategies to deal with the public. They have also been provided with new uniforms and equipment.Thanks to the Governors support, the police department has received a pick up truck and motorcycles for patrols, and can now cover 80% of the territory of the Continental Zone and the island.
       The twenty-nine year old Councilman noted that his work means he is an employee of the people, and therefore must attend to the issues that the citizens entrusted to him. He said, "I am a person who is close to the people. I still go to the market on my little motorcycle to buy things for my mother to cook, among other things."

NEED DIABETES SUPPLIES FOR OCTOBER DIABETES CLINIC: We have been doing Diabetes Clinics on Isla Mujeres for five years, with more local residents participating annually. This is a joint project of bilingual social workers, nurses, and other health care professionals originally from the USA, working with Isleno community partners. Diabetes is now the primary cause of death in Mexico.
We are in great need of donations of glucometers and strips, specifically these brands: Contour, Contour Next and OneTouch. Many doctor's offices, clinics and hospitals discard strips that are almost expired. Strips are actually still effective for at least a year after expiration dates so often those are the ones that are most often donated. If you have any contact with medical professionals or pharmaceutical reps, you can often get current supplies. We can also use lancets, lancet devices, alcohol pads, and syringes.
The next clinic will be in October 2014. Contact Karen Rosenberg at or Kathy Ennis at or FB either of us. We accept monetary donations too and will buy strips to bring down.
