    Kim Miller 10/23/56 - 7/15/18

    Kim Miller 10/23/56 – 7/15/18 Kim LeAnn Muirhead Miller passed peacefully into God’s care early Sunday morning, July 15th, at her home in New Market, VA, with her husband Ron by her side. Born to LeRoy and Shirley Muirhead on October 23, 1956, in Oberlin, KS, she was the second of three children. Her early years were spent in Oberlin and later Leoti, KS. A daughter, Misty Melena, was born into her first marriage. After a divorce, she moved with Misty to Holdrege, NE, working at the Pizza Hut. There she met her future husband, Ron Miller. Ron and Kim were married in Kearney’s Harmon Park, on May 29, 1976. Ron, Kim, and Misty made their early home in Blair, NE, where Ron was employed at Woodhouse Ford and Kim had the multi-role of mother, homemaker, wife, gardener, and waitress. On Oct 4, 1978, their son Brent was born. In 1978 when Ron founded Auto Krafters, Inc., Classic Ford Restoration Shop and parts supplier, Kim helped him manage the new business as Vice President and Secretary. As the business grew, Ron and Kim along with Misty and Brent traveled throughout the Midwest attending numerous car shows and swap meets. Kim loved this family time together. In 1987 Ron and Kim moved their family to the Shenandoah Valley. It was at this time that Kim began her deep interest in herbalism and nutrition. She studied with Dr. Bernard Jensen, DC, in California and studied and taught at Dream Time in Sperryville, VA, in 1998-2001. She also founded and operated Rainbow Images, a health food store in Broadway, VA, in 1997-98. In 2007, Ron and Kim purchased a 42 acre farm in western Panama along the Rio Gariche, starting Finca Santa Marta S.A., an organic vegetable farm. Kim’s love for gardening was fully realized as she helped develop and transform the farm from a marginal cattle grazing operation into a productive organic farm, producing over 40 different crops along with free range chickens and grass-fed cattle. In the fall of 2015 Kim attended the Graff Academy in Roswell, GA, to study and receive her certification as a raw food chef. She loved to create and make raw food dishes for family and friends and was happiest in the kitchen preparing healthy food for her family. She was preceded in death by her father, LeRoy, her mother, Shirley, and her older brother, Kip. She is survived by her husband Ron Miller, New Market, VA, and Santa Marta, Panama; her daughter Misty Miller and grandson David of Broadway, VA; and her son Brent Miller and partner Melissa, along with granddaughters, Addison and Clair of Harrisonburg. Other survivors include her brother Al Muirhead and partner Traci, of Alma, NE, and family; her sister-in-law Jun Muirhead and daughter Angie; brother-in-law Stan Miller and family; sister-in-law Elaine Martin and family; sister-in-law Carol Blauvelt and family as well as many dear friends. There will be three Celebration of Life Services for Kim. In Virginia, the service will be held at the Grandle Funeral Home at 148 E. Lee St., Broadway, VA, at 4:00 pm Sunday July 29th. In Nebraska, the service will be held in Alma, NE, at the Johnson Center, 509 Main St. on Sunday August 5th at 4:00 pm. In Panama a service will be held later in August at a place and date to be determined. Kim had requested that any Memorial donations be made to First Step, a shelter for abused women in Harrisonburg, VA. www.firststepva.com R.I.P.

    The Great Boquete Soup Fest

    The Boquete Knitters and Quilters Are Hosting The Great Boquete Soup Fest At The Clubhouse at BCP Friday, October 5, from 11AM-1PM Watch for More Information!
  13. Greetings to the Boquete Community from Milky Way Creamery! Many of you already know us from the BCP Tuesday market where we have offered our goat dairy products for over 5 years. For those of you who we haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting, Milky Way is farmstead goat dairy and creamery right here in Boquete. Although the goats are our main focus, we also have other animals, as well as some vegetables and ornamental plants. Over the years, we’ve had fantastic results with our veggies and flowers by using a fertilizer that we've been producing ever since we started raising goats. Now we’ve decided to offer it to the rest of the community, and it’s a great time to do some planting. Our organic fertilizer is made using a mixture of fully composted (black soil), partially composted, and raw goat, duck, chicken, and green manure. The result is a mixture that's teeming with beneficial microorganisms that can support the growth of your plants for 6+ months. You can grow directly on it, or you can use it as the perfect soil amendment for your raised bed and potting mixes. Pictures are below, and here are some comments from previous clients: I am an avid gardener and have used Piero's goat berries for the last 2 years. I usually spread them in early rainy season. The growth, vibrancy, health and flower production is fantastic. Far superior to anything I have used on the gardens in the 14 years I have lived here. Victoria Lee Appenzeller The Hacienda Bed and Breakfast “Piero's goat manure is a great addition to my organic garden. I've never had such great veggies in my life. Very rich in nutrients! I am very pleased and would recommend it to anyone who wants a super healthy garden.” Eric Christensen “Piero’s goat manure really makes a strong difference with my organic veggies, especially the carrots, cucumbers & tomatoes…It’s also extremely convenient & affordable for the results it produces.” Harreson R Mayers The 50 lb. bag is $10. Piero will be in the Plaza San Francisco parking lot on Saturday, July 21st, between 10:45-11:30 A.M., ready to load up your vehicle. If that time or place is not convenient for you, please feel free to call or write, as we could likely make alternate arrangements. Also, if you are interested in purchasing a carload of bags (10-16), we offer complimentary deliver within the Boquete area. In the past, we have been fortunate enough to sell out, so if you are interested in purchasing a bag, we recommend that you reserve one ahead of time via email at milkywaycreamery@gmail.com, or contact Piero at 6481-6397. We’d be happy to let you know if we still have any bags available before you head out the door, and we’d also gladly answer any other questions that you may have! Best wishes, Piero and Adriane

    Isaac Casal Ensemblast Concert

    Good Morning More information about the concert: Concert day: Sunday, August 12 Time: 5:00 pm Entry: B / .18.00 Thank you From: News Boquete Sent: Thursday, July 19, 2018 6:11 PM To: inbox@list.newsboquete.info Subject: [News Boquete] Isaac Casal Ensemblast Concert Ensemblast Project has been a singular creative force of bold, new trends in chamber music for strings, piano, other instruments, and singers. It breaks new ground authentically and passionately, fusing the classical quartet aesthetic with contemporary Latin American styles and borrowing freely from an array of musical languages – folk, jazz, salsa, bolero, world and pop. By devising a performance practice that honors both influences, the state of the art has been inevitably redefined. For more information visit: www.biblioboquete.com www.isaaccasal.com Limited tickets, buy your ticket on time, in Mail Boxes Etc, and Boquete Library Do not miss this unique presentation in Chiriqui.
  15. We don't charge admission, but we do ask for donations to support BCP and the Film Club program. $2-3 per person is suggested, but any level of donation is much appreciated. Food and drink - including popcorn - are available for purchase in "The Clubhouse" cafe in the BCP Hex Room. These items may be taken into the theater, but please clean up after yourselves so we don't have to hire a janitor. Note: If you want to be added to our email notification list, please reply to BoqueteFilmClub@gmail.com Future July Films: July 29: As Good as it Gets (USA - 1997) -------------------- Sunday, July 22 @ 1:00pm - Black Panther (USA- 2018) - 2 hours, 15 minutes English language film with Spanish subtitles Domingo, 22 de Julio @ 1:00PM - Pantera Negra (USA-2018) - 2 horas, 15 minutos Película de lengua Inglesa con subtítulos en Español Ratings: IMDB - 7.5/10, Rotten Tomatoes - 97%, Roger Ebert: 4/4 (Rated "PG-13") Although we seldom present pop culture action films, Black Panther is a truly excellent science fiction/action movie without the sophomoric silliness that is seen in many "superhero" movies. We are presenting it with Spanish subtitles, so be sure to tell your Panamanian friends about this very special BCP Sunday Matinee Movie. Recommended for children age 12 and older. From Common Sense Media: Ryan Coogler's masterful superhero drama is unlike any other, featuring outstanding acting, breathtaking art direction, fascinating royal intrigue, memorable action sequences, and surprising depth. It's that depth -- of character, of storyline, of relevancy -- that makes Black Panther shine, as Boseman's T'Challa takes the mantle of king with enormous uncertainty about whether to share Wakanda's resources with the world. With the exception of his second-in-command W'Kabi (Kaluuya), T'Challa surrounds himself with an inner circle of influential women: Okoye, Nakia, his mother (Bassett), and his genius younger sister, scientist/tech inventor Shuri (Letitia Wright). Each of them contributes much to the story, with Gurira's spear-wielding Okoye the movie's clear scene-stealer, Wright the clever comic relief, and Nyong'o offering a wee bit of romance. Even the central villain, as played by frequent Coogler collaborator Jordan, is well-rounded and humanized, with the actor doing great work opposite the equally nuanced Boseman. There's so much to appreciate in Black Panther, from its pulsing score, which features a soundtrack overseen by award-winning rapper Kendrick Lamar, to the mesmerizing cinematography courtesy of DP Rachel Morrison, gorgeous tribal costumes, and vibrant production design. There's not as much laugh-aloud banter as viewers may have come to expect from Marvel movies, but the beats of humor that are here, usually thanks to plucky Shuri or mountain-tribe leader M'Baku (Winston Duke), are extra funny. Ultimately the film's success comes down to the thoughtful, compelling storytelling from director Coogler and writer Joe Robert Cole, as interpreted by a terrific cast of actors. This isn't just another highly entertaining but formulaic superhero story; it's also poignant and powerful and earns its place toward the top of Marvel's films. (Be sure to watch all the way through the credits for a couple of extra tidbits!)

Go online and book your travel and use the 24-hour hold. Get your reservation number. Call 321-3455, (Press 2 for English) and give them your Copa Connect miles number and your reservation number and tell them you want the Pensionado discount. They will have you email a scanned copy of your Cedula to escalation@copaair.com or you can do this step first to get confirmation they have received it. Once you receive confirmation you are now in their system for future travel with the discount but you still must call in to get the discount and pay over the phone with your CC. Once you book and pay by phone they will email you your travel documents and receipt. Very easy to do.
