Prompt response by Federal Electrical Commission reestablishing connection on Rueda Medina 

Restablece suministro en prolongación de la Rueda Medina

Lanrry PARRA
ISLA MUJERES, 5 de agosto.-
 Approximately 1350 of electrical cable (500 gauge) needed to be replaced by CFE workers, who were able to restore electrical service along prolongation Rueda Medina, after residents were without service for eight hours yesterday (Tuesday). The problem was found, which caused the outage for many users. The head of the CFE on the island, Orlando Roque Flores. says the cable could be part of a faulty batch, with problems during manufacturing, which are now being detected two years after it was installed. 
       He said in addition to the more than 1300 meters that were replaced, now there are three more sections of more than 450 meters (500 gauge) needing changing, in addition to the Titanic amount of work yesterday (Tuesday). It was necessary to bring a crane from Cancun to Isla Mujeres to move the cable. The decision was made to replace these three sections, although the failure was not in these cables, to prevent more failures in the future.
       The interruption in service was resolved by 5pm on Tuesday, and now they are able to change the cables without suspending service. The entire job could involve 24 hours of continuous work.

Twelve fishermen have suffered decompression

In approximately one month 

En un mes de temporada de captura de langosta

Lanrry PARRA
ISLA MUJERES, 5 de agosto.-
      In little over a month since the start of lobster season, a total of twelve fishermen have suffered from decompression and required treatment in the Isla Mujeres hyperbaric chamber. 
      The tenth case was Gerardo Arias Torres, 23, of the cooperative “Patria y Progreso”, who was diving at 140 feet deep, on his second dive, when the compressor (in the boat, supplying him with oxygen via a hose) quit and he had to surface too quickly, injuring the right side of his body. He came to the hyperbaric chamber complaining of numbness in his legs and abdominal pain. He was given treatment at level nine for an hour and a half, but there was no improvement, so today he will receive treatment at level five over two hours and fifteen minutes, with hopes for substantial improvement.
   The eleventh case was Rigoberto Torres Arias,  29, also of the cooperative “Patria y Progreso”, who was also injured while diving at 140 feet, and had discomfort in his arm after surfacing. He was improved after treatment in the hyperbaric chamber at level nine. (They can treat two people at once in the chamber.)
   The twelfth case was Angel Pool Hoil, 52, of a fishing cooperative in Cancun, who arrived with a problem with his left arm and left in satisfactory condition.

    It is recalled that on July 8th, the Second Regular Meeting of the Municipal Committee for Health and Safety was held, whose goal was to follow up on actions to analyze, prevent, manage, and treat problems associated with mosquito borne diseases. At the meeting agreements and commitments were made for the prevention and control of diseases such as Dengue, Chikungunya, Zika fever and malaria, which included establishing ongoing junk removal campaigns. These works included  all the agencies in the municipality involved with public health.
   In addition, staff from the different municipal departments and agencies and volunteers have been participating in campaigns to help clean up the community in general. These campaigns join with other programs such as "Adopt a Park" and "Recycling Trash for Food", among others.

Boat tour to El Farito lighthouse

Paseo en lancha a El Farito+] Ver mas
By Ovidio Lopez , 5 de agosto.-
     Clouds threatened rain, which fell briefly during the afternoon, but did not prevent recreational activity continuing around Isla Mujeres. People enjoyed boat tours to El Farito to swim and snorkel in the coral area, and the area is also enjoyed by people using scuba tanks.
      A little rain fell in the afternoon, but then the sky cleared and tours continued. For those who added a visit to the beach, this was a great experience. Young  Tlaxcaltecans Nivardo Elías Carbajal and Eliodoro Cantones, who came over on a boat from the Cancun Hotel Zone, said they came to confirm what they had seen on the internet. They said they swam, traveled around the isle in golf cart, and ate on the beach,  and now plan to schedule a visit for next summer, staying on the island. 
       The "Saldo Blanco", no incidents, continues according to the security personal of the three levels of government.

Successful experience for young Catholics
Exitosa vivencia de jóvenes católicos [+] Ver mas
The young Catholics who went on a mission to the state of Mexico, to Ecatepec, for fifteen days have returned and report the evangelization of the group for the Divino Niño Jesús. They say they broke down the walls of Jericho that affect that community, which are violence, crime, drug addiction, family breakdown, social networks, disease and idolatry. They said there testimonies of miracles including a  woman becoming fertile after 15 years when she was unable to have children, and a young man received the ability to play an instrument without attending classes.\
