I just received an email  from Lisa ( the reporter) about a shootout at Christina Park. I do not subscribe to her publication so that is all I know. 

Anyone know anything?

I just read it (I am in Ontario, never been to Chapala, going in a month for first time).

Four shots fired from 3 cars, came after dispute between State and Local police during some kind of State operation on a home....not saying it was cops, just criminals which of course does not exclude police....

 

Hope this does not violate crime publicity on this board. I am new here, so please forgive me if I have wronged LOL.

I think that is most likely Christinia Park  (Sp?) in Chapala and Lisa is a 4-alarm Snake, not a reporter. IMHO of course

Well if you insist…….spelling is Parque Cristiania.

Thank you!

Spanish spelling is so much easier than English if people make an effort to learn the basics.

Computerguy, you are just going to get all the newcomers confused! 😁

Then they'll fit right in with a lot of oldcomers as demonstrated rather consistently.

Lisa plagiarizes .... she steals articles from other publications and publishes them as her own, in her rag.  As Kam says, she is not a reporter.... but she does like to present herself as an investigative journalist.   What a joke.

 I believe that Tianguis is both singular and plural.  Surprise!

Well, I certainly didn't think we would end up in this direction. Personally, I find it easier to speak in Spanish than rite it😄

Since we're on a sortofa picky roll here, its spelling is Parque Cristianía.  That little accent changes the pronunciation of the word.

It could as easily have been the libbermento. Or the Wednesday tiangeez.

LOL for your excellent spelling Mike.

Too lazy to change the damned keyboard from English to Spanish, as I have to do every.time I open it up.   Grrrr

But you are correct, just as García requires that accent. Strong vowel A combined with weak vowel I is considered one vowel and syllable in Spanish,  unless the weak vowel is accented.

I should add that that the accent divides the last syllable into two syllables hence the rule of stress on the next to last syllable.

I don´t know exactly what Cristianía means, except Christianity …..maybe More Liana does.

Did a little research and Christiania was the name of the city of Oslo, Norway for about 300 years before it was changed to Oslo about 150 years ago.

Slow Monday…….:)
