Por Esto says starting time for the game that was scheduled for Sunday was arbitrarily changed, which is alleged to have been in favor of the star player of the Cancun Team La Rebotera. The Cahuameros withdrew from the finals of the state basketball league championship, which they considered tainted by favoritism.

 La Fundación Colosio en Isla Mujeres commemorated the 20th anniversary of the death of former Presidential candidate Luis Donaldo Colosio Murrieta, whose murder has not been solved. In addition to his importance on a national level, he left his mark on Isla Mujeres in the form of public works and services that we enjoy every day.
     Between 1993 and 1994, as head of SEDESOL, and thru the Solidaridad program, Sr. Colosio developed and implemented a variety of projects. One of the most significant was the closure of the open air trash dump, and establishing the trash transfer facility, with equipment to move the trash from the island to the landfill at Ranch Viejo on the mainland. With resources from Solidarity, a program of sanitation was implemented to end the contamination of Salina Grande, which also allowed the filling in of Salina Conasupo. On the reclaimed land from the spaces that were dredged from these bodies of water, island families now enjoy sports and civic facilities, and green areas and parks.  The Cruz de la Bahia (Cross in the Bay) project was also funded by resources from the Solidaridad program, as well as the rescue of the Mayan ruins at Punta Sur, among other smaller projects.
      The event was attended by the President of the PRI, the Mayor andh is wife who heads the DIF, as well as former mayors, and other politicians and officials who included:  presidente del PRI en Isla Mujeres, Enrique Cahuich Bates; ex presidentes municipales como Gerardo Magaña Barragán y Fidel Villanueva Madrid; ex diputados como Enrique Lima Zuno, Mari Trejo Pacheco; ex presidentes de partido como Reynaldo Leal Escobedo, Balbino León Paredes y el maestro Ramón Celis Peña.

It is reported that three mobile vendors had their permits taken away, and that they intend to file a complaint with the State Human Rights Commission. It is said they had already paid for the month of March, and it is believed this was done to intimidate the other informal vendors. They have been quiet, and none have filed complaints with the State Human Rights Commission.
    There are also officials within the City Government who are upset at what some consider a draconian attitude, because they thought only the sellers lacking proper permits would be removed, and those invading the public areas of Rueda Medina, and those who despite having established stores, are walking the beaches as though they are mobile vendors.
     However the raid affected every informal vendor, even those who in addition to having permits from the Comercio en Vía Pública, were paying for a concession in the Federal Zone, which gives them a right to set up in that area.
      An official who preferred to remain anonymous said the informal venders were relocated to an area on the street Adolfo Lopez Mateos, and by the municipal cemetery, where some were trying to sell their wares along the roadways. Others are considering relocation in small stores which cost an average of 3000 pesos in monthly rent, which is a situation that is causing them dispair because they do not know where they will get the financial resources that are needed to function as an established store.
    One vendor said they were very bothered by the argument for their removal given by the City; that the tourists needed freedom of movement along the Rueda Medina malecon; because there are many downtown business, especially along Rueda Medina, who invade the sidewalks with their displays, planting them almost halfway into the street, and tourists must dodge and weave to walk without running into them, when the sidewalks are full. "We are not the only ones," he said.

Concern over basketball league

This concerns the unexpected change in the schedule for the final two games between Isla Mujeres and Cancun in the State Basketball finales. It is believed the schedule change was done for the convenience of one of the Cancun players, and the Isla Mujeres team was not in agreement, and say they were not consulted. The change to Sunday evening was inconvenient for the Isla Mujeres players, because some would be unable to attend.

Beaches free of mobile vendors

Sunbathers and families were enjoying the intense heat, and the cool Carribean waters of the public beaches of Isla Mujeres, with temperatures at an average of 30 degrees Celsius and mostly clear skies. There were no mobile vendors on the beaches, because they had been removed by the agencies of  Fiscalización and Comercio en Vía Pública.  There were tourists and locals, which included beauties sunbathing in tiny bikinis, as well as families sharing picnics.  Visitors began arriving  early via tour boats and ferries, and some enjoyed shopping or renting golf carts, which are very popular with the picnickers who visit for the day.

Their main restaurant is toward the north end of Hidalgo, and their new bakery is near Poc Na hostel, in the new retail spaces by the artisans 'flea' market.)
