    After giving up on the idea of raising 350,000 pesos to purchase a new ambulance, the board of the Red Cross was able to purchase a second hand vehicle for 50,000 pesos which went into operation last week. They said the engine is in good condition and they did general maintenance and changed the 'balatas' . The president of the board said they urgently needed to purchase another ambulance because their unit was constantly needing repairs.

Lobster season was better
Estuvo mejor temporada langostera.. [+] Ver mas
This was a good lobster season for the five fishing cooperatives, compared to last year, according to preliminary data..  They have taken in more than 15 million pesos from the harvest of 23 tonnes of lobster tail and 46 tonnes of live lobster. The fishermen of Patria & Progreso report a worse season than the others, and they use traps while the other mostly rely on nets.  While it was a better season than last year, it is not like the time prior to Hurricane Gilberto, said one fisherman, who said production has declined sharply since then (1988).
   La Justicia Social reports one tonne and 100 kilos of tails and 19 tonnes of live lobster, ; Patria y Progreso, 700 kilos of tail and  5 tonnes of live lobster; Isla Blanca, 11  tonnes of tail and 10 of live, Caribe had 3.5 tonnes of tail and 12 tonnes of live, and Makax had 6 tonnes and 513 kilos of tail since January and no live lobster.
   The tails are selling for 350 pesos a kilo and live lobster for 160 pesos per kilo. The last day of the season is tomorrow, February 28th. The 300  fishermen are hoping for municipal support during the four months of closed season, (March-June), which was offered by the previous PAN government, of about 2.8 million pesos, to give them about 80 pesos daily.
