Sewage discharges have continued in Rosarito Canyon for two years

Translated by Fulano from an article in Rosarito en la Noticia.

Rosarito, B.C. – Since February, 2012, the president of the Rosarito Canyon Association of Farmers and Livestock Ranchers, Don Bernabé Hernández Armas, and its board of directors, have been complaining of the indiscriminate discharge of sewage from different subdivisions in Tijuana, like Los Valles, Casas Geo, Ruba Natura, Ké Casas S.A. de C.V. and Palma Real. These irresponsibly discharge their sewage in the the Historic Rosarito Canyon.

The contaminated waters are discharged at Corredor 2000, affecting humans, the livestock and the flower growing zones and the aquifers which are in danger, as they are used to supply irrigation for different crops, livestock and human consumption.

Something very serious which will considerably affect farmers, is the risk of losing permission from the US Food and Drug Administration, which will cancel exports to the United States.

He said that at any time they are growing food crops, and if it is shown the products are contaminated, they will lose their export permits. There is much to be lost and this should be avoided. A meeting of those affected has been called, such as the people in Huahuatay Arroyo and the residents of colonia Cuenca Díaz, among others, to put up a common front.

They reported that with their own money, they ordered some analyses of the waters, and the results of contamination were startling and have serious consequences. These affect humans, livestock and ecotourism of the History Rosarito Canyon and close-by locations.

Next week  residents, the board of directors and ejido members will meet. Those are who are in need of taking strong measures, as the authorities have not taken notice of this very sensitive matter.

Young man dies from alleged medical negligence in Ensenada hospital

Translated by Fulano from an article in El Vigia.

José Luis Villalobos Morante, 26 years old, died in the General Hospital, Zone IV-8, of the Mexican Social Security Institute, due to medical negligence says is mother, Concepción Morante.

For her part, Morante and her family filed a complaint with the Human Rights Prosecutor in Ensenada and the Federal Public Minister, with the hopes that justive be served.

The woman explained that her son died yesterday, Saturday, around 9:30AM after having surgery for pancreatitis, which was detected a little more than four months ago. According to the doctors, his situation was grave from the onset and the pancreas had to be removed.

The problem, said Morante, “is that after my son was operated on, he should have been sent to intensive care as they do with all the patients who come out of surgery, but instead of that, they took him to a floor without connecting him to a ventilator to maintain stable respiration.”

She said the director of the IMSS General Hospital for Zone IV-8, Luis Antonio Araiza Núñez, and the deputy director, Xóchitl Valenzuela, as well as Dr. Escobar (did not recall his first name), said that her son will be placed on a floor with a ventilator because there is danger he would stop breathing without it, as he had already stopped breathing once.

However, when he was taken to the floor, that did not happen, and Villalobos Morante was placed in an area without ventilators, and did not even have a doctor to watch his condition, in spite of the seriousness of his condition, said his mother.

“The surgeon ordered that care be taken with him, that he be transferred to intensive care and with a doctor watching him, but he never said which floor, much less without having a special ventilator for his breathing.”

“The doctor even said that it was necessary so that his work (the surgery) was not wasted, but they (doctors John and Castañón) insisted in sending him to that floor and that is what they did,” she said with her voice breaking up.

Concepción Morante said that she will not sign any hospital documents until the case of her son is investigated.

Arrest of Randy Mark Yager rattles the Rosarito real estate industry

Translated by Fulano from an article in Frontera.

ROSARITO, Baja California – In Rosarito, Randy Mark Yaker, one of the 15 most wanted men by the U.S. Marshals and his wife, Jessica Mary Dorian, passed themselves off as a respectable couple, composed of Steve and Margie Rothman, who worked in real estate and it was not until the State Preventative Police arrested them that their true identities were discovered along with their criminal links.

Wednesday, October 15, police agents arrested the individual, meanwhile his companion died as she was pursued by the police.

This notice rattled real estate agents, recalled Victor Loza, former state president of that group, who said that he met to couple in 2002, when they bought three homes and then rented out two of them to have income to live on.

He added that later Yager saw real estate as an opportunity to earn money and he worked in this activity, passing for an honest person.

“It was a huge disappointment,” he said, the couple had a good life in Rosarito because in addition to taking over homes of American owners who had died and whose properties were not claimed, which they rented out, if a relative showed up, they gave it to them without problems.

He said that the couple was very helpful, did not have problems with anyone and so they were never suspected of being bad people.

This event, he said, alerted the real estate companies, because the foreign community here is very large and they mix very well, so after six or seven months of living here they are unnoticed, to such an extent that nobody asks about their past.

In addition, as in the case of this couple, suspicions were diminished because they belonged to the Foot Printers Association, make of former American policemen who help with various tasks in the community.

Woman in La Paz offers to exchange her 2-year daughter for a purse or evening dress

Translation by Fulano.

Girls I urgently need to sell or exchange this  baby. She is two years old and the reason why she is for sale is that she has ruined my life. Because of her, my husband left me, because both of us are white-skinned and unfortunately, she was born very fucking dark, like my asshole. My husband hit me and left me, alleging that this daughter is not his, that she was the neighbor’s who is a mulatto like that snot-nosed kid. Even in spite of the fact that rogue left me.

I cannot stand her anymore and if anybody wants her, I’ll exchange for an imitation MK purse or a dress to wear out to a nightclub…
