  2. New Masthead Photo for CL

    In an unrelated set of events, one of Boquete's most senior expat residents provided some interesting historical information about the Isla Ventana area, which is the area depicted in our masthead photo that was posted in the summer of 2016. I refer to Price Peterson. With his permission, I am quoting some comments from a recent email received from Price. Parenthetically, for those who might be interested in more information about Operation Just Cause, here is a link to the Wikipedia article: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_invasion_of_Panama. There is no reference that I could find to M'Lady in this Wikipedia article, but it does mention the "Dignity Battalions". Thank you to Price for sharing this piece of history.
  3. Great job here Doug and Jo. You are helping us (and others) to understand where this KISP and BMA thing is going. Thank you.
  4. Moderator comment: This topic discusses coffee varietals in and from Costa Rica. Informal conversations with local coffee growers leads us to believe that some Boquete coffee growers are considering these two varieties. Further, we were led to believe that there are two coffee varieties from Colombia that are also being looked at closely. The trailing comments from those informal conversations were to the effect that local specialty coffee growers likely will not use these bug resistant varietals because the resulting coffee is "not competition quality". https://www.centralamericadata.com/en/article/main/Coffee_New_Variety_Resistant_to_Rust
  5. Moderator comment: This topic could be placed in any of several different forums. We have opted to place it here in the Public Transportation forum, given that there are no formal charges of corruption, etc. If any CL members have strong feelings about the placement of this topic, please let @Moderator_02 know via PM. http://www.newsroompanama.com/news/panama/transparency-int-demands-airport-boss-exit
  6. Moderator comment: Reference in the below news article to scandals involving Financial Pacific and the Caja de Ahorros savings association are subjects of other topics located in this same forum. If you are interested in reading more about them, then we recommend doing a search on this corruption forum using either term as a search argument. http://www.newsroompanama.com/news/panama/multiple-suspect-gets-fresh-court-delay
