Adding MUSA sculptures to Punta Sam reef expected to increase visitors there

 Será un punto de descarga de otros sitios al formar parte del Museo Subacuático de Arte

ISLA MUJERES, 11 de junio.-
    More underwater sculptures are being added to MUSA (Underwater Sculpture Museum) at the reef known as "Punta Sam", which helps relieve pressure from the Manchones reef, by attracting visitors away to view the sculptures.  The placement of these sculptures will open the third underwater MUSA gallery, and is expected to increase visitor to the museum by 30 percent.
      The new sculptures will be submerged starting on June 16, and have been on display in gallery space along the 5th kilometer of  Kukulcán, Boulevard in the Hotel Zone. They will be replaced by others when they are removed. The first sculpture to leave will be "Blessings" (Bendiciones), which consists of six pieces, on June 15th.
       It is on display with  “Falsos Idolos”, “Expansiones”, and “Caja de Pandora”. When sculptures are submerged, other sculptures replace them, going into rotation. The next sculpture coming on display will be "Vestigios",  which will be finished in a few days. The purpose of the gallery is to promote the sculptures in Cancun, where many people do not know the world's larges underwater museum is located. 
      This is a coordinated effort by the Secretaría de Educación y Cultura de Quintana Roo (SEyC), with funds from Consejo Nacional para la Cultura and las Artes de México (Conaculta), who will be submerging many sculptures in upcoming days.

Fishermen have high hopes 
Pescadores con mayores esperanzas. [+] Ver mas
 Fishermen who are members of the cooperatives 'Patria & Progreso, Isla Mujeres, Isla Blanca, Caribe, Justicia Social, and Makax are hopeful that the changes in government which will take place in October will be for their benefit.
   The cooperative "Patria & Progreso" was the second cooperative to be formed in the state, which occurred half a century ago. Now its members have been involved in a legal battle,  which has not been progressing, said Jaime Osorio Sanchez, president. He said with the arrival of Carlos Joaquin as state Governor, they are hopeful that the judges and Public Ministries offices will operate according to regulations. The legal battle between the current and previous administrations of the cooperative is related to a potential sale to a private individual, and control of the organization.
    It is recalled that a year ago Sr. Osorio was elected president of the Patria & Progreso cooperative, and then found there were no documents on file and no evidence of any accountability. This was verified by a Notary and their lawsuit was filed, based on this. (At the office of the coop, all records were removed by the previous administration.) The coop's lawyer, Gabino Andrade, said they will seek the highest penalties and expect jail sentences for those at fault. They want the financial dealings of the previous coop administration clarified.
    The cooperative "Isla Blanca" was involved in a legal battle and recovered the property they had been evicted from, which included over 400 square meters where they bring their products to shore, as well as the expenses from the three year legal battle. Their opponents had been supported by former mayor Manuela Godoy Gonzalez and ApiQRoo (state Port Authority), but the cooperative prevailed in the courts. There was a project for this cooperative to grow cobia fish, which fell thru following this issue in 2011. Their pier needs renovating and is in very bad condition.

Recounting the contents of five ballot boxes  
Abrirán cinco paquetes de elección .. [+] Ver mas
  It has been agreed that on Sunday, five packages of electoral votes will be opened and recounted, which are from sections 257, 258, and 261, with the last two being the two 'megacasillas' at the island and the mainland. This was decided following meetings and discussions between representatives of the political parties and the Municipal Electoral Council.
     The challenge was made by the PAN party within four days, as required by law, and PAN candidate Alicia Ricalde Magana also expressed concerns and opinions on social networks before, during, and after the election about alleged irregularities by PRI.
        There is an allegation of irregularities due to mathematical errors or differences between the records of some party representatives and those of the Electoral Council. The other reason for the request to recount is based on the issue that the number of invalid (null) votes is greater than the difference between the winner and second place.
     The five boxes under review where these irregularities may have allegedly occurred are: #257 básica (at the preschool/kindergarten Tláloc), #258 contigua 3, #258 contigua 4 (both at the primary school Julio Sauri), #261 contigua 3 and #261 contigua 6 (at the primary school Enrique Estrella).
      The count is scheduled to begin at 8am on Sunday and expected to be completed by noon, and the Mayor-elect, Juan Carrillo Soberanis is scheduled to deliver a speech afterwards.
