    This urban legend has been floating around the internet for years without substantiation. Unless someone knows this has actually happened, this "warning" is about as helpful as warning you that someone may throw dog crap at your windshield. You'll also find Utube videos trying to replicate the "egg and water, when they join, form a viscous substance like milk that will prevent you from seeing where you are going, blocking your vision as much as 90%" scenario without success.

    It's my personal opinion that immigrants to a foreign country should, without losing their identity, make an effort to assimilate. That includes keeping up to date with current events. The value derived is, in part, a better understanding of local people, their culture and governance.

    I am not going to get into this BS on CL. This topic belongs in the Rant Group on boquete.ning, a group CL should consider starting so stuff like this doesn't start cluttering up the forum. It is totally irrelevant to life in Chiriqui, except as we are all on the same planet.

    Awareness is good, but this is not the kind of assault we're likely to be dealing with here.

    Hi everyone We would like to confirm that the new property tax law has been approved (Law 66 of 2017). The Government will be regulating and establishing some rules for most of the procedures during the next year, however, it is important to advise the community that there is a Moratoria or period of grace to pay property taxes with no interest and fines. Therefore we encourage the community to review the properties and if there are pending debts to request the benefit of the moratoria. We have helped successfully two clients already to get this benefit which is valid until December 2017. We wil be at the Boquete Tuesday meeting on Nov. 7 to talk about this tax law, see you there. Un cordial saludo, / Best regards, Juan Gabriel Contreras Sánchez Attorney at Law and Licenced Realtor / Abogado y Corredor de Bienes Raíces.

    We are very happy and proud, we were able to bring this new and unique experience to our community. It was a big effort from both organizations with the support of the community, residents, businesses and institutions. We have received many comments about the wonderful time it was had: great food, beer, wine, sweets, ice cream. Lots of thumps up! They love the different bands and DJ......People were dancing and singing along .......what a great time. Under the positive points: We delivered a unique event that is being talked about in Boquete and David. Everyone who came from David had fun and positive comments. I also heard from friends from David, who could not come. They were so sorry they didn't come after they heard comments from the ones who came. We were able to unite the community. We had such good mix of Panamanians and foreigners. This so positive. To be able to have our community dancing, eating, enjoying themselves..... makes all worth it! We also had some not too happy comments, of course no event will please everyone. We look at these comments in a positive way as they all had one common denominator......the music was too loud. Most people love loud music, many would like it lower. We learned that we need to find a happy medium. Also we need to add a bit more "Um papa music". Everything else was GREAT! We do not have the final figure yet.......it will come soon. We do want to give a huge THANK YOU! to the community for the support we received from : The Municipality and the Mayor of Boquete The Fair Ground Patronato Supermercado Baru Garden Inn Heaven Spa Price Smart Skate World Sugar & Spice El Pianista Milan Italiana Restáurate Novedades La Reyna Jackie Jeffers Pilar Esquivel. VENDORS: Emma's Truck, Frank Big Daddy, Chris and Justin. The Boquete Brewery, Mort's Bakery, Bertie. Tito's Ice Cream Linda's sweets To all our wonderful VOLUNTEERS THANK YOU!!! As always, we had some very dedicated people who were working constantly weeks before the event. They also came early to open the event, stay the whole time and close the event. From: Rotary Club: Ralph Day, Betsy Day, Lucie Connor and Jim Mc.Callum. From ACCB: Linda Hart, Joe Hart and Edie Baxter. Thank you so much. Yolanda Vega.

    FYI - I don't post much anywhere but I do edit the PanamaLinks web-page,. In fact I have edited it 22 times since February 2016. As always, I am looking for new links of general use. Please let me know if you have any you would like added. I would be especially interested in moving companies that ship OUT of Panama. It is a question that pops up fairly often and I have never seen an actual recommendation.

    A minor correction: the event was not "poorly" attended. It was "modestly" attended. I would guess there were between 40 and 60 people, but I didn't count. There were several empty tables and even more empty chairs. Nonetheless, with Nairn and Nancy's generous contribution, Javier and Magaly took home some money. For those of you who support their work but were unable to attend the event because of personal commitments, Alison offers a sound suggestion: utilize their GoFundMe site to help out.

    Thanks to everyone for your comments. We totally agree that the music was too loud! I worked as one of the servers and it was difficult for me to take orders. I had to ask to repeat them. We asked repeatedly for them to tone it down throughout the day and they never did. I am so sorry about that. We have learned some things from this experience and will definitely take all suggestions into consideration for the next event. More umpapa would have been better too. Thank you for coming and also for your suggestions. Linda Hart -ACCB

    It seems ludicrous to attach blame for any of these incidents on the presence of a Police checkpoint, which in the opinion of officials and other residents, has lowered crime in the area. Who's to say that the officers from there would be reassigned to the village of Boquete, anyway?

    Keith: Your "too bad" comment about family complaints about the distance and cost involved for visiting the new prison is uninformed. Every week, family members cumulatively deliver hundreds of pounds of food, toothpaste, toilet tissue, clothing and other items not provided to prisoners by the prison. The quality and quantity of food provided by the company with the food service contract are abysmal. Without supplementation from things brought by friends or family members, prisoners are left in really bad circumstances.

    Urban mobility. What a joke! Why don't they start with Boquete, which is becoming harder to get around in every day. And what's with those Greyhound size buses going around town on our narrow, congested, broken up roads? These aren't tourist buses. They are commuter buses between Boquete and David. Whose bright idea was that?

    Just received this warning from our neighborhood vigilantes. If at night someone throws an egg against the windshield, we recommend for you to do the following. Keep calm and accelerate. Do not use the windscreen wiper. Never put water on the windshield when someone has thrown and egg on it. Accelerate quickly do not stop. This is a ploy of thieves and they are close by waiting for you to stop . Explanation. The egg and water, when they join, form a viscous substance like milk that will prevent you from seeing where you are going, blocking your vision as much as 90%, You will be forced to stop where you are and there you will be a victim of the thieves. This is the future intention invented by thieves. Please share it with your family and friends.
