  1. Story from local paper Pagina on Sept. 16, 2021 reporting that the incoming Presidente de Chapala is planning to exert some control over federal areas, which is what was done in PV. PÁGINA Que sí se lee #Comunidad 🔴 || Anuncia Alejandro Aguirre que intervendrá en el tema de invasión de las zonas federales Por Gilberto Padilla García Cuando entre en funciones como presidente municipal de #Chapala, Alejandro de Jesús Aguirre Curiel dijo que intervendrá en el tema de las invasiones en zonas federales del Lago de Chapala, a fin de encontrar una solución a la problemática. Al ser un asunto que preocupa a un grupo de habitantes de #Ajijic, quienes retiraron cercas y mallas de algunos terrenos federales, al poniente de dicha delegación, Aguirre Curiel dijo que no desconoce la problemática y por eso tomará cartas en el asunto. “Yo, igual que ellos, estoy muy molesto por todo lo que está pasando en las zonas federales. Creo que debemos tomar acciones, pero dentro del marco legal, para que ellos también no puedan caer en una responsabilidad, en un problema legal”. “Me queda claro que todos los gobiernos municipales no hacen nada por las zonas federales y es por eso la molestia, la desesperación de las personas, pero en el próximo gobierno vamos a tomar cartas, vamos a cuidar las zonas federales”. En entrevista, Aguirre Curiel dijo que se retomaría la propuesta de firmar un convenio con la Comisión Nacional del Agua (CONAGUA) para que el municipio tenga la administración y custodia de las zonas federales, aunque también existe otra alternativa. Esa alternativa tiene que ver con Puerto Vallarta, donde dicho municipio encontró un instrumento jurídico que le permitió tener el manejo de las zonas federales, incluso, realizar el cobro por el uso de las mismas, por lo que se busca replicarlo en Chapala. “Estamos trabajando en eso, si lo logramos, eso sería un ingreso importante para el municipio, pero es un proyecto hasta ahorita”, aclaró el también regidor del PAN con licencia, sin ofrecer más detalles acerca de la propuesta. La problemática de las zonas federales, en donde los concesionarios han construido de manera indebida en los terrenos del vaso lacustre, no es desconocida para Aguirre Curiel, quien gobernó Chapala por primera vez en el periodo 2001-2003. A finales del 2003, el también empresario encabezó una campaña de retiro de postes, cercas y alambrados que habían sido alcanzados por el Lago de Chapala en su recuperación y que representaban un riesgo para las embarcaciones. Esta campaña se realizó en coordinación con la Capitanía de Puerto y la CONAGUA, a quien le compete directamente la supervisión de las zonas federales concesionadas y el retiro de las construcciones que están fuera de la ley. #Comunidad 🔴 || Announces Alejandro Aguirre that he will intervene in the issue of invasion of federal areas By Gilberto Padilla García When he comes into office as the municipal president of #Chapala, Alejandro de Jesús Aguirre Curiel said he will intervene on the issue of invasions in federal areas of Lake Chapala, in order to find a solution to the problem. Being a matter of concern to a group of inhabitants of #Ajijic, who removed fences and meshes from some federal grounds, to the speaker of that delegation, Aguirre Curiel said that he does not ignore the problem and therefore will take matters into account. ′′ I, like them, am very upset about everything going on in federal areas. I think we need to take actions, but within the legal framework, so that they too can not fall into responsibility, into a legal problem ". ′′ It's clear to me that all municipal governments do nothing for federal areas and that's why the annoyance, despair of people, but in the next government we're going to take care of federal areas ". In interview, Aguirre Curiel said that the proposal to sign a convention with the National Water Commission (CONAGUA) would be resumed for the municipality to have administration and custody of federal areas, but there is also another alternative. This alternative has to do with Puerto Vallarta, where the municipality found a legal instrument that allowed it to have the management of federal areas, even to make the charge for their use, so it is sought to replicate it in Chapala. ′′ We're working on that, if we succeeded, that would be an important income for the municipality, but it's a project so far ", clarified the licensed PAN's also Councillor, without more details about the proposal. The troublesome of federal areas, where dealerships have unduly constructed on the grounds of the lacustre glass, is not unknown to Aguirre Curiel, who ruled Chapala for the first time in the period 2001-2003. In late 2003, the entrepreneur also spearheaded a campaign to retire posts, fences and wire that had been hit by Lake Chapala in recovery and posed a risk to boats. This campaign was conducted in coordination with Port Captaincy and CONAGUA, which is directly responsible for oversight of federal concession areas and the withdrawal of outlawed buildings.
  2. It is one of the sweetest photos I have ever seen.

  4. We used the Leal's years ago and were very satisfied with their service. It was not for a roll-up door.
  5. Hispanic and Latino are often used interchangeably though they actually mean two different things. Hispanic refers to people who speak Spanish and/or are descended from Spanish-speaking populations, while Latino refers to people who are from or descended from people from Latin America. Unlike Hispanic, which refers to language, Latino is a term that refers to geography. It is used to signify that a person is from or descended from people from Latin America. It is, in fact, a shortened form of the Spanish phrase latinoamericano — Latin American, in English.
  6. A national registry is NOT illegal in US, at least not yet. Sen. Ted "Cancun" Cruz introduced a bill that would ban such a registry but it has garnered little support. If the President wants to mandate a national vaccine registry, he can. Biden is on record saying he is not (yet) contemplating a registry. Wish he would!
  7. Nice fluffy dough with good fillings. Reasonably priced at 20p. They are calling them Russian empanadas, but they are true piroshki. Located in Plaza Montana in Ajijic. Northeast intersection of carretera and Calle Colon. Russian family with Mom and her grown daughters in the kitchen. They have a take-away window where they also display some of their baked goods, which include the piroshki as well as savory and sweet pies. Their inventory varies day to day and throughout the day. No indoor seating, just a few tables in their 'courtyard' which is just a corner of the parking lot. They sell on the Ajijic plaza on the weekends (weather permitting, they've been washed out for part of the past few weekends). They are fairly new and have changed their hours which are now: Tuesday-Friday 12pm-7pm Saturday, Sunday 10am-2pm at our bakery (6pm-9pm at the plaza Ajijic) From their FB page https://www.facebook.com/rusiamor/ Delicious Russian empanadas for you! We have different flavors: - spinach and cheese - mashed potatoes - mushrooms - ground beef - rajas (chile poblano, corn, cheese) - chicken liver pate - eggplant and goat cheese We sell sweet empanadas, apple pies, Russian cookies, pies for orders and many more things!
  8. I buy hand-held spray cans of H24 at the "dollar store" on Ajijic plaza.
  9. It's from Emma's Deli. You can phone or Whatsapp them to reserve loaves or bagels for pick up at their restaurant. They were doing delivery service, but not sure if they still are now that they are stocking their baked goods in local stores. Best Reuben sandwiches (and bagels) in town!! Contact info here, https://www.facebook.com/EmmasDeliAjijic
  10. I've managed to live here for 10 years total without needing a MXN bank account. During this time we've bought and extensively renovated 2 homes and purchased a new car. Never paid an ATM fee (Chas. Schwab). But the OP says he needs a local bank account in order to secure a storage unit and I have no reason to doubt him/her.
  11. US credit unions (not just SDFCU) don't care if you live overseas, at least the ones I am familiar with.
  12. Looking for non-alcoholic wine (yeah, sounds like an oxymoron). I went to Paz yesterday and when I asked they said all they had was Martinelli's Sparkling Apple Cider. Anyone seen vino sin alcohol sold here?
  13. This Mexican Supreme Court ruling may give women in Texas an opportunity to cross the border for the procedure rather than be forced to give birth to babies in their bodies as a result of rape or incest.
  14. In fairness to Walmart (which I loathe), we had similar issues with a private lab here TWICE (once a misspelling, once an incorrect date) at 5x the price of Walmart. Read your reports carefully no matter where you go for them!
  15. The author of the thread that ACD hijacked, has deleted it. Thank you, @MitchF. And it looks like ACD's comments in other threads have been expunged. Maybe @moderator5??? He had been shortening some of ACD's more egregious lies as of yesterday.
  16. I hope that in addition to this single issue, it is a sign of empowerment for Mexican women across the board.
  17. https://intl-cvx-scheduler.wal-mart.com.mx/ This site to schedule an antigen test at Walmart is now operational.
  18. My personal criteria for a good rain year is when the lake hits the old seawall below the Ajijic malecón. As of this week the water is lapping against it (in most parts). A really good rain year is when the lake level exceeds the old seawall. Prior to the construction of the malecón, a flooded park was the sign of a really good rain year.
  19. From three different pages at www.aa.com site of American Airlines, all say 3 days (not 72 hours). AFAIK all US carriers are required to follow the CDC 3 day rule. https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/coronavirus-updates.jsp?#travelrequirements Testing requirements for travel to the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) requires all passengers flying to the U.S., including U.S. citizens, show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 3 days of departure, or documentation of recovery. This does not apply to children under 2 years old. https://www.aa.com/i18n/moresearch.jsp?locale=en_SE Face coverings and COVID-19 testing requirements A face covering is required by federal law when indoors at the airport and on board American Airlines flights. In addition, passengers flying to the U.S. from another country, including U.S. citizens, must show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 3 days of departure, or documentation of recovery. These rules do not apply to children under 2. Passengers who may be exempt from wearing a face covering due to a disability must contact us before travel. https://www.aa.com/i18n/travel-info/coronavirus-updates.jsp?#traveltotheus Testing requirements for travel to the U.S. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) requires all passengers flying to the U.S., including U.S. citizens, show proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 3 days of departure, or documentation of recovery. This does not apply to children under 2 years old.
  20. Not 72 hours. 3 days. From CDC site, https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/testing-international-air-travelers.html Why does the Order specify 3 days rather than 72 hours? What is considered 3 days? The 3-day period is the 3 days before the flight’s departure. The Order uses a 3-day timeframe instead of 72 hours to provide more flexibility to the traveler. By using a 3-day window, test validity does not depend on the time of the flight or the time of day that the test was administered. For example, if a passenger’s flight is at 1pm on a Friday, the passenger could board with a negative test that was taken any time on the prior Tuesday or after.
  21. In Canada, doctors can withhold test results from the patient?????
