ISLA MUJERES, 9 de octubre.-
   A three day fumigation or fogging campaign was completed to decrease the presence of mosquitoes which can cause Dengue or Chikungunya. This campaign began on Wednesday in response to citizen complaints about the presence of more mosquitoes all around the island. The campaign was completed after they had fumigated all the sectors and neighborhoods. 
    On Wednesday, they sprayed  the colonias of  La Gloria, Ampliación La Gloria, Meteorológico, Salina Chica, Salina Grande and the area along Prolongación Aeropuerto. Thursday they fought mosquitoes at the colonias of  Electricistas, Caribeña, Lol-Beh, Miraflores, Cañotal, in the residential zone of Sac Bajo and in the area of  Garrafón. Next, they fogged the public and private schools, as well as the downtown area, and they will continue to cover the entire island for the next month. 
    There are four people involved in this work, with two nebulizers and two trucks. The Vectors Department asks cooperation from housewives and residents in general to give access to these personnel, and to avoid having accumulations of water where mosquitoes can breed.

ISLA MUJERES, 9 de octubre.-
     Felipe de Jesús Contreras García has been appointed as Director of the middle school "Benito Juarez", after the position was vacant for two weeks. He is replacing Ramón Peña Celis, who has had the position for four years, and before that it belonged to Eva Fanny Quijano Kiní.   The former Director, Ramón Peña Celis, left the office because he is retiring after 42 years of educational service.
    The appointment of the new Director was welcomed by the teachers, who have heard good things. The new Director is expected to continue with the plans for working within the curriculum that were established by the outgoing Director. During the interim two weeks when there was no director, these responsibilities were carried out by the teacher Mildred Aguilar Cruz.
           "Benito Juarez" was the first middle school in the state. There were two teachers on the campus who has hoped to attain this position. The new Director arrives after spending five years at a middle school in the municipality of Playa del Carmen and two years in another school in the township of Benito Juarez (Cancun).

From Sally MargolisHi all!! We (Isla Animals) are gearing up for a HUGE Spay/Neuter, Vaccination, Wellness campaign for the animals in Rancho Viejo Nov 17-22. This is a very poor area in the municipality of Isla Mujeres. Most are living without electricity and running water. The situation for the animals there is dire right now with parvo & distemper running rampant, and heavy overpopulation. We expect to treat/vaccinate/spay/neuter 1000 cats & dogs with the cost of surgery at just $10us per dog. This may be the only time any of these animals see a vet. We can treat the existing animals, vaccinate others against disease, curb the population growth, and educate pet owners on proper animal care and make a HUGE DIFFERENCE!! We have the knowledge, experience, volunteers, and heart to make it happen. We are asking for all of your help to raise funds to make the campaign a reality. (We can also accept Paypal donations via our site - just add RANCHO VIEJO in message, and cash in person on Isla Mujeres. Please, please share the link on your social media. It helps us so much. If you are not in a position to donate PLEASE do read the campaign & share, there is lots of excellent info in it about the work we do-There is always so much to do! Thank you for your time!
