San Ramón en Acción
Miguel Cruz, father of Óscar Cruz, the lost park ranger in Poás Volcano National Park, extends his thanks and appreciation to the U.S. Embassy and the U.S. Navy airmen from the hospital ship Comfort for providing a helicopter and conducting air searches for his son. Miguel is the head of security for our municipality and is a good friend of the community.
Our local Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) conducted an operation in Bajo Tejares and was able to apprehend the two leaders of the Escalera gang responsible for the recent violence in our community. The two gang leaders are being held in jail until their trial six months from now.
The Community Action Alliance will host a Road Survival Spanish workshop Aug. 26 from 10 a.m. to noon at the fire station in San Ramón. Participants will learn what to say in the event of an accident, if their car breaks down or if they are pulled over, as well as basic terminology for speaking with a mechanic. Johann Benavides of Green Mountain Academy will be the instructor. To reserve a spot, RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Community Action Alliance is a community-based, action-oriented organization focused on resolving issues and improving the lives of all residents of Costa Rica. For more information, go to www.actionalliancecr.com.
