Bullying Complaint
 Carmen Solís Bacelis has spoken with media and written a letter,  requesting intervention from the state and federal departments of education (SEQ & SEP) because she says her daughter is being bullied at the middle school Benito Juarez, and school officials have not responded to solve the problem. She said her daughter "K.A.S." has suffered psychological and physical abuse from students A.A.B., M.A.C., J.G.T., and B.A.P. for months without any type of sanction. This has included teasing and writing obscene messages on the walls. School officials did not respond to her request for a meeting with the parents of these children. She lost patience after her daughter told her on April 18th they had again written obscene messages and thrown eggs when she was in the bathroom (echaron huevos).

Taxi Union Objects To Cart Company Transporting Tourists
Taxi union president Eduardo Peniche Rodríguez wants authorities to intervene against unfair practices by golf cart rental agencies, and in particular he is complaining about "Coco Cart Rental".  He says they have a travel agency at the ferry terminal and are transporting tourists in golf carts who want to rent carts. The union leader explained that there is an agreement which states that tourists  must go to actual location of the rental company, but they are not complying. This situation takes opportunities away from taxi drivers and they make no money. He wants the inspectors to surprise the employees of the rental agency, and asks that these activities be avoided, which affect the families of the cabbies and benefits only a few people.

US Invaded Veracruz During Mexican Revolution: Heroes Commemorated

The Governor came to Isla Mujeres to participate in the ceremony commemorating the XCIX Anniversary of the Heroic Defense of Veracruz, in 1914, against invading US forces. The Governor spoke about the loyalty of the Navy and the high sense of honor and  of duty shown by the  everyday heroes of the Mexican Navy.  Source:  Diario Verdad /
  They were commemorating the Battle of Veracruz on April 21, 1914 when citizens of the city, with students of a military school, heroically tried to defend the city against invading troops. The US had not declared war, and invaded the city and occupied it for 7 months, for political reasons. This was during the Mexican Revolution.  HERE is a link about it. It was triggered by the Tampico affair when the US had military ships offshore, out of concern for American financial interests in the area. Nine American sailors went ashore into an off-limits area and were briefly detained, then released with apologies from the commanders involved who returned the men to their ship. In addition to official apologies, Pres. Wilson demanded Mexican officials raise the US flag over their governmental buildings, although the US had refused to recognize Huerta's government. When Huerta failed to comply, Congress began discussing military action. A ship was about to arrive in port bringing arms to Huerta's army, so the US decided to intervene, claiming this was a violation of a US embargo. In fact, these arms originated from the Remington factory in the US, who routed them via Germany in an attempt to subvert the US embargo. Huerta was in power due to assistance from the American ambassador Henry Wilson, in 1913. Many civilians and students were killed during the twenty day siege of Veracruz by US troops. Some of the naval students and sailors who died in the battle are commemorated annually when their names are read from the List of Heroes. Here is Wiki's link.

Island House Fire & Mainland Brush Fire & Search For Missing Hunter
The Department of Civil Protection reports the fire Sunday night in colonia Salina Chica, near the business Bepensa, was controlled, resulting in material damage only. There was a good response to the alarm, with Civil Protection receiving support from police, Navy, and Aguakan. According to the owner, there was a candle left burning, which cause a stuffed animal to catch fire, resulting in a mattress burning, while no one was home. On the mainland area of Isla Mujeres, there was a small fire on a vacant lot that Civil Protection quickly controlled without damage. On Monday the staff from Civil Protection, in coordination with the group Caritas, began searching for Juan Carlos Nunez, 40, who was reported missing Saturday night after he had gone out hunting. He is a caretaker of a ranch within the township of Isla Mujeres, and they were searching near the town of Francisco May at Rancho Abascal, where he was last seen.

L'Argentine Owner Says Closure Unfair & Official Says "Open After Hours"
In the wee hours of Sunday morning, the restaurant L'Argentina had closure seals placed over its doors while it was closed for the night The owner says he does not know why they were closed, and believes he has all his documentation in order, noting that the municipal inspectors must have arrived after they had closed for the night at 1am. He said they were the first of the businesses in the area to close on Saturday night. He says he feels persecuted by both City inspectors and COFEPRIS. The business was closed all day Sunday and remained closed Tuesday. A few months ago COFEPRIS imposed a fine of over 300 days minimum wage, alleging they had contaminated food. (The daily minimum wage is approximately ~$5usd/day) Source: Quequi/Carlos Gasca
     Wednesday TV Isla Mujeres reported their fine was 31,000 pesos. The Isla Mujeres municipal Director of Audits, Mario Alberto Espinosa Chablé denied that the closure procedure on Sunday morning of the restaurant L'Argentina was outside the law, explaining they placed the closure seals because  the business had been operating outside its allowable hours. Only those businesses who pay the fee to have permmision to operate for extended hours can be open for extended hours, under Article 20, Section D which sets the scheduled times. In the case of L'Argentina the allowable hours of operation are from 7am to 11pm, with one hour of tolerance. This means they should not be open later than 12pm, yet they closed at 1:40 am, so we placed closure seals to enforce the law, explained the official.  He says his office acted within the law, and the owner became arrogant. He noted that the maximum fine  is 2000 daily minimum wages, and they applied the minimum of 500 daily wages. He noted that some business opt to pay for permission to have extended hours, while others do not, and that this business did not.

No Increase In Summer Illnesses With Heat, Yet
Although certain illnesses are expected to increase with the hot weather, so far they have not. Usually conjunctivitis increases, but they have seen only one case last week. Gastrointestinal illness usually increases when temperatures soar, so the hospital Director, who was addressing a women's group, advised avoiding street food and recommended handwashing before meals and after using the toilet. He also noted that chicken pox and head lice tend to increase during hot weather. He said their prevention programs run by the hospital and around the island seem to be effective (with a "bandera blanca" reference I don't understand.

Sunrise Tuesday from MVC B&B

Tuesday afternoon on Playa Norte at Buho's

Wednesday evening at Iguanas listening to awesome Jazz & having tapas..Well, Bruce had Tapas which came with two glasses of beer or wine (we had one glass of each & I drank the wine). He enjoyed it all, and especially raved about those triangles of potato puff something or other. That is a meaty kabob, breaded shrimp and bell peppers with onions in a tasty sauce. I had great guac. We really enjoyed the Jazz! Gabby is a great bartender, and the views are always impressive. At Marina Paraiso.

  If you have the opportunity, & are on the isle consider watching the sunset then full moonrise (in the east, over the Caribbean) tonight...and Saturn may be visible above the moon & I think tonight is the partial lunar eclipse.  If you are planning a trip to Isla, you can google "Cancun moonrise" and this site shows up  where you can find out the moonrise & sunset times for any month.
