Boyfriend suspected in homicide: Allegedly caught last ferry on Tuesday

Se peló el asesino

Viernes, 20 de Septiembre de 2013 23:46

Tras crimen en cuartería, logró alcanzar el último barco el martes pasado

ISLA MUJERES, 20 de septiembre.- The commander of the Policía Judicial reported that the autopsy confirmed that Alma Josefina Chan Cahuich was murdered. He said she died at 10pm on Tuesday, apparently by hanging (ahorcamiento), and her assailant presumably caused the stab wound in her right side to assure that she would die. Her boyfriend, Felix Balam, is the only suspect, because he cannot be located, and the door was latched and there were no indications of it being forced, and she was still wearing her gold necklace. Relatives said the deceased was always complaining that he was very jealous and followed her everywhere, and she had asked to separate because he was not working and drank a lot. They were together for a year and a half, and he is being sought. She is originally from the state of Campeche.

Agapito notes successful program: "Recycle Trash For Groceries" 

Agapito constata exitoso programa

Viernes, 20 de Septiembre de 2013 23:42

“Reciclando Basura por Alimentos”

ISLA MUJERES, 20 de septiembre.- Dozens of island families benefited yesterday from this event that began promptly at 8am at the green dome in Salina Chica, where they could trade recycleable trash for basic groceries and items for personal hygiene and the home. The groceries included beans, rice, milk, and fruits and vegetables. This is a state government program that has come to Isla Mujeres nearly every week (except during the elections) that has had increased participation by the housewives, and the large number of senior citizens are given priority so they do not have to line up to exchange their trash. Women who were interviewed commented about the ease of separating trash and how helpful this program was, especially during the low tourism season and rainy weather, when work is scarce. It is mentioned that the mayor-elect, Agapito Magana Sanchez, participated in the coordination of this program, and was present to greet islanders and to congratulate them for being aware that this program also aims to keep the island clean, and to encourage them to take advantage of the social services such as haircuts, in addition to the food they receive. He extended an invitiation to come to his inauguration on Sept. 29th.

    Por Carlos Gasca > Quequi.- The owner of Hotel Na Balam and Fenix Lounge, Santiago Robles Martinez, said he was taken by surprise by the bridge construction at the Avalon Reef Hotel. He said he is outraged because this will affect Na Balam's beach club, Fenix Lounge, and the Avalon Reef hotel has not been willing to show him their permits. He sought information from the representative of PROFEPA,Ludivina Menchaca Castellanos, who he said was also surprised to hear of the construction, and planned to send an inspector by Saturday, Sept. 21st. He says construction of this bridge will block a large part of the concession to the federal zone that he has held for years, and it is his responsibility to report any problems. He also invites other federal, state, and municipal authorities to review the work, and to close it down if it is not within the laws, including the agencies SEMARNAT, ZOFEMAT, PROFEPA, API, SCT, and the Harbor Master.

This is my first success story with the rehabilitated meanies, now lovies. Heath is the white one with blue eyes with his new sibling. He has adjusted well to his furever family both furry family members & human family members. Thankfully, it was an open adoption & his mom keeps sending me pictures. Heath's siblings are in the next two pictures. Thor is the brown pup. His face would be perfect for commercials or stuffed animals. He loves to just sit on your lap & have you pet him. Heath's sister, Heather has beautiful hazel eyes. She starts smiling as soon as she sees me. They are both available for adoption & will be wonderful family members. If anyone is interested in adopting them, feel free to contact Alison Sawyer Current or me.
