A total of 32 teams, in both men and women's divisions, will participate in this event which is expected to involve more than 300 athletes, and generate considerable economic benefit for the island, explained the Director of the municipal Sports Department, Enrique Barros Peña. Two courts will be set up on the Posada beach and the games will be held between 8am and sunset, said Mario Garcia de la Torre, president of the Mexican Federation of Handball (FMH).
   This is an open category tournament, so the players of each team are between the ages of 16 and 54, and the most popular teams in this sport come from Mexico City, Nuevo Leon, and others from the Central and Northern parts of Mexico.  This event is also supported and promoted by the Director of Tourism, Gustavo Rodriguez and local promoter of the sport, Jose Mercedes Trejo. The arrival of this competition to the island coincides with international recognition of the beaches of Isla Mujeres.

    Piden los taxistas reglas claras

    0 14 de octubre de 2014  The Union leader said all providers should be regulated.

    Eduardo Peniche Rodríguez, leader of the Isla Mujeres taxi union said he will seek a meeting with the General Secretary of the City to organize the details concerning access and the restrictions that apply at the new Maritime Terminal for passengers. The terminal was opened on the fourth of October., by Governor Roberto Borge Angulo, and was built with an investment of ~42 million pesos.
       The taxi union leader said said it is necessary to bring order and prevent the comisionistas from entering the terminal, as well as preventing the unfair competition that has occurred at times with the porters and tricycle drivers. He explained that the purpose of the upcoming meeting with  authorities is to clarify the rules of operation for each of the involved groups.

Crabs: Without protection
Cangrejos, sin protección[+] Ver mas

Unlike previous governments, the current Department of Ecology is not promoting the protection of red and blue crabs during their spawning period, say some who promote this plan. In recent years, vehicle checkpoints were placed around the island and Punta Sam, which were manned by residents and NGO's who are committed to conservation. Drivers need to slow their speed in the areas where the crabs cross the roads during their migrations to the sea to lay their eggs. They are seen at night in Sac Bajo, near Mundaca, and at Punta Sur, as well as in the mainland areas of Isla Mujeres near the archeological ruins of El Meco and at Punta Sam. There are no signs to warn motorists, and the private and public schools students are not protecting them this year. There is no tradition of predation of this species, but it is said that in the northern part of Sac Bajo there are construction workers, for example from Tabasco,  who come to capture them for cooking.

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 kfrlisw@gmail.com or Kathy Ennis at kathy@kathyandkeith.mx or FB either of us. We accept monetary donations too and will buy strips to bring down.
