    Boat raises suspicions 


    Levanta sospechas un navío

    0 29 de septiembre de 2015  By Carlos Gasca

    There has been a pleasure boat moored at the Naval pier for three days, and the Navy has not issued a statement regarding an drug arrest or a rescue, so people are wondering about it. Some people who live nearby said the vessel was towed to the pier and had one crew member aboard.  The boat is approximately 42 feet long, white with a dark blue stripe, and an inboard engine.

      Drivers are concerned about the patching of the road by Aguakan, where they have been replacing lines south of the runway, near the high school. They want the Public Works department to ensure that the company does a proper job after they finish, because there have been areas of uneven pavement on the perimeter road since they worked on it and repaved it in 2007, between colonia Salinas and the FOVISSTE housing.

Hi all!! We (Isla Animals) are gearing up for a HUGE Spay/Neuter, Vaccination, Wellness campaign for the animals in Rancho Viejo Nov 17-22. This is a very poor area in the municipality of Isla Mujeres. Most are living without electricity and running water. The situation for the animals there is dire right now with parvo & distemper running rampant, and heavy overpopulation. We expect to treat/vaccinate/spay/neuter 1000 cats & dogs with the cost of surgery at just $10us per dog. This may be the only time any of these animals see a vet. We can treat the existing animals, vaccinate others against disease, curb the population growth, and educate pet owners on proper animal care and make a HUGE DIFFERENCE!! We have the knowledge, experience, volunteers, and heart to make it happen. We are asking for all of your help to raise funds to make the campaign a reality. (We can also accept Paypal donations via our site islaanimals.org - just add RANCHO VIEJO in message, and cash in person on Isla Mujeres. Please, please share the link on your social media. It helps us so much. If you are not in a position to donate PLEASE do read the campaign & share, there is lots of excellent info in it about the work we do-There is always so much to do! Thank you for your time! http://www.gofundme.com/isla-animals-rv
