Balsero boat removed from Los Tuxpenos beach: After fishermen objected

ISLA MUJERES, 21 de septiembre.-
The balsero boat that was removed from North Beach to the area of the Posada Beach known as “Los Tuxpeños”, has been relocated to the property of the Harbor Master. The fishermen who use the Tuxpenos beach objected after municipal Civil Protection workers moved the vessel, because the boat contains many liters of water that has been contaminated with diesel fuel.
      It is noted that the scrap dealer who had planned to dismantle it is no longer interested because he says it is not profitable or worth bringing all his tools and equipment, because everything of value, such as the ~100kgs of aluminum, has already been removed.

Seeking deeding of properties

    Buscan regularizar tenencia de tierras

    0 22 de septiembre de 2014
    The head of the state legislature ( El presidente de la Gran Comisión de la XIV Legislatura del Congreso del Estado de Quintana Roo), José Luis Toledo Medina was in Isla Mujeres for the first Informe report by the mayor. He said our Mayor has the full support of the legislature, and that he plans to support the mayor's projects and to provide better funding for infrastructure on the island in health, education, and sports.
       He said, "I consider the mayor to be one of the best we have ever had Quintana Roo and certainly in Isla Mujeres. I want to take this opportunity to tell the islanders that they can always count on him to manage more funds for tourism infrastructure and public services."
       The legislator explained the he is working closely with the Federal Government to process the request to provide land titles for ~6000 families, most of whom are in the Continental Zone of Isla Mujeres. He said, "We will give legal certainty in land tenure (deeds), ensuring the heritage of the children of Isla Mujeres."  This release of properties will include CORET, with many benefits for the residents of Isla Mujeres, and now with this, the conditions of development will be established in that area.
       He said, "There is a combination of efforts between the Federal and State governments, and indeed the municipal government, and in this regard it is clear that there will always be more benefits for the residents of Isla Mujeres." The introduction of services will be immediate and will reflect the certainty and security they have today, and which will crystallize with the delivery of the property titles.  
         He concluded, "In the 2014 budget, we have reallocated additional resources to Isla Mujeres and in 2015 there will be no exception. We are seeking to provide more resources to the island, this is my promise as President of the legislature, and also as President of the Commission of Tax, Budgetting, and Accounting (presidente de la comisión de hacienda, presupuesto y cuenta), more resources will be devoted to municipalities such as Isla Mujeres. (Please excuse the awkward grammar...translating political speeches is trickier than usual articles.)

      Increased demand for Hyperbaric Chamber


    Aumentan demanda de cámara hiperbárica

    0 22 de septiembre de 2014
     The physician in charge of the Hyperbaric Chamber, Dr. Heli García Molina, said that the number of fishermen being treated for decompression has doubled and continues to rise. He said this is because they are diving twice as deep, and they do not follow the safety tables regarding depths and times. The situation is complicated by the fact that some of the fishermen are using drugs or alcohol, which increase the risk for decompression injuries.
        He said the fishermen say they must dive deeper now because lobsters have become scarce. They are diving deeper, spending more time below the surface, and increasing their number of descents.
         This is further aggravated for the fishermen who dive under the influence of drugs, which they say provides "security", which the doctor said is fictitious security, because they are pushing the limits of their health. He said, "These substances give them confidence, but in reality this is a false security because while they are working, feeling well, and not feeling any pain, they forget about normal dehydration that occurs during a day at sea, and they believe that everything will conclude well." Unfortunately, lobster fishing is increasingly complicated, risky, and dangerous to the lives of the seamen.
         There have been 41 fishermen treated for decompression injuries so far this season which began July 1st.. This number is expected to rise since there are still five months left to the lobster season.

Residents  have complained that ads located on an abandoned worksite along Lopez Mateo avenue look ugly and that there are many tourists staying in nearby hotels who are being given a bad image of the island. Marissa Lizet Kú Aldana, who lives in the area, said she does not know who gave them permission to put the ads there, but she thinks the City should remove them. Some of them are in poor condition and about to fall down. The contain ads for dive shops, hotels, and rental agencies, among others.

Fight at jail between two inmates stopped immediately
Internos se lían a golpes en la cárcel[+] Ver mas
Police officers immediately stopped a fight between two inmates at the City Jail, which occurred in view of families and friends who were visiting the jail. The two inmates had personal differences, and were placed in separate cells, as part of the normal intervention when this type of phenomenon occurs. It is presumed that the problem is aggravated by the lack of space since there is less than 200 square meters for the recreation of more than 20 defendants, despite the recent expansion. de menos 200 metros cuadrados para recrearse más de 20 procesados.  There are plans to continue increasing the space, to be introduced in due course. The Human Rights Commission frequently visits the jail to evaluate their treatment and to attend to complaints from families about any matter that may violated the rights of each prisoner.

Relocation of hawkers: Pending issue
Reubicar comisionistas, tema pendiente[+] Ver mas

Although in January the Director of Tourism announced a proposal to relocate the 40 hawkers from Rueda Medina, this has not occurred. It is expected when the Ferry Terminal is opened that they will not be allowed inside. Some businessmen want the municipal government to impose more restrictions on the hawkers, because they allege that the commisionistas present a poor image of the island, that they harass tourists, and that sometimes they are drunk.

NEED DIABETES SUPPLIES FOR OCTOBER DIABETES CLINIC: We have been doing Diabetes Clinics on Isla Mujeres for five years, with more local residents participating annually. This is a joint project of bilingual social workers, nurses, and other health care professionals originally from the USA, working with Isleno community partners. Diabetes is now the primary cause of death in Mexico.
We are in great need of donations of glucometers and strips, specifically these brands: Contour, Contour Next and OneTouch. Many doctor's offices, clinics and hospitals discard strips that are almost expired. Strips are actually still effective for at least a year after expiration dates so often those are the ones that are most often donated. If you have any contact with medical professionals or pharmaceutical reps, you can often get current supplies. We can also use lancets, lancet devices, alcohol pads, and syringes.
The next clinic will be in October 2014. Contact Karen Rosenberg at or Kathy Ennis at or FB either of us. We accept monetary donations too and will buy strips to bring down.
