A new program for children has been initiated at Centro Educativo Playa Chiquita. Wednesdays at 2 p.m., the center offers children’s community cinema; entrance fee and popcorn for only {1,000 ($2) per person. The Centro Educativo is also organizing books and accepting donations to begin opening the library to the community. If you would like to donate time, books or need more information, call 2750-0754.

The current hot topic in the Caribbean is a voluntary annexation of the South Caribbean communities Cahuita, Puerto Viejo and Manzanillo to Panama. These communities are seeking union with the Bocas del Toro province. It’s popping up on our Facebook newsfeeds, Twitter accounts, and blogs, elperiodicocr.com, infierno.ticoblogger.com, our beloved Tico Times; everyone is piping in!

Edwin Patterson (ex-diputado of the Citizen Action Party) has been the voice behind the movement, but many with homes and businesses within the Maritime Zone have backed him amid unrest with the Maritime Zone Law initiations.
