Fishermen seek support during this crisis

Pescadores piden apoyo urgente

Sábado, 21 de Septiembre de 2013 20:25

Ante crítica situación

ISLA MUJERES, 21 de septiembre.- Although sunny weather began on Friday, unlike tourism service providers, many fishermen wait three days for the seabed to clear. After about 15 days of being unable to work due to weather, many of the fishermen are getting by on loans. The municipality did not pay them two million pesos in support as it had intended during the closed season on lobster, and while they are not looking for 100 percent of that money, they could use some municipal support, says the head of Social Justicia fishing cooperative, Baltazar Gomez Catzin.

Restaurants close their doors
Restaurantes cierran sus puertas. [+] Ver mas
Some restaurants are closing for up to two weeks to take a vacation while it is low season, and to save money on expenses like utilities and payroll. They have placed signs noting they are on holiday or "Back on Oct. 2", so their customers know the closure is temporary. The closed establishments are mainly in areas such as  Juarez avenue, where fewer tourists pass by than on Rueda Medina, the main street.  After the national holidays conclude in September, this is one of the slowest times of the year.

Three cases of  salmonellosis have been detected in children between the ages of 6 and 12 this past week. One was a six year old boy on Sunday, and it was attributed to poor food preparation, and the recent heat, which can encourage growth of the bacteria. The doctor on duty advised that food should not be of low quality, and vegetables and fruits should be disinfected, and warned that some drinks sold on the street may contain industrial ice cubes instead of pure water.  He said symptoms can include high fever and abdominal pain.

Hotels organize Pool Party to attract islanders
Hoteles organizan “Pool Party” para atraer isleños+] Ver mas
Hotels and beach clubs see a need to promote domestic tourism during this off season, and are organizing events and parties, which helps maintain their workforce, and allows islanders to enjoy touristic activities at affordable prices. The Posada del Mar held a  Pool Party at noon yesterday and youths and adults enjoyed the sports and water activities arranged by the hotel. These types of promotional strategies allow entrepreneurs to recover from poor sales due to the lack of foreign visitors at this time of year.

 Isla Animals Daily Update: Have you ever seen anything cuter. I posted this little guy before. His name is Sac Bajo because that’s where I found him. It’s a section of Isla Mujeres. I was driving along in someone’s golf cart and saw these people looking under their golf cart so I slowed down thinking they might have mechanical problems. Well they were poking at a puppy trying to get him out from under the cart so they could drive away. The poor little thing was terrified and the more they poked the more frightened he became. These dogs are survivers. They react differently to things, with more fear than the average dog. Anyway, all it took was a bit if kind vocal coaxing to get him out. He was skinny with a wound on his head and the minute I hugged him he melted. He sat on my lap all the way home. We have a family for him but we have to fix some skin issues and get him there. Transportation is a big challenge. We have so many rescues that are dying for puppies, we just have to be patient about getting them there.
