Headline #1: Fight in Colonia Guadalupana
Summary: Friday afternoon two families began fighting in the colonia Guadalupana, the fight became more and more serious until the police came to intervene after they started throwing sticks and rocks at each other. No one was hurt and the situation was diffused by the presence of the police.
Headline #2: Playgrounds in a State of Disrepair
Summary: Residents of La Gloria asked Por Esto to come and do a story on the sad state of the basket ball court in their neighborhood. Filled with rocks and wood, and without two working hoops, it’s not much of a basketball court. They are hoping that the incoming administration will take notice and fix the parks and ball courts around the island.
Headline #3: Beaches Come Back to Life
Summary: The playas are packed! Mostly with Mexican Nationals, which is good for tour operators because according to them the Mexicans are the ones who seek out the snorkel tours and boat tours the most. Not only are the beaches packed, the town is packed as well and so is the Malecon, but Por Esto points out that although the sea is beautiful from this walkway on the Caribbean side of the island, the ugly half demolished “Perla del Caribe” hotel sort of puts a damper on things.
