  1. I like “...good and so CHEAP...”, but have no idea where/who “Olga’s at Alto” is. Please clarify.
  2. An Alta Al Crimen Report To Boquete

    Agree with 2Sailors. Bring on the aspirin. My head hurts. I didn’t need or want a history of the AAC group. IMO Gregory could benefit by taking an effective writing skills course. He is trying to be nice, but writes from a defensive posture. When I see such writing style (some people call it spin) I wonder about the real story behind the rosy picture that he paints. To my way of thinking this lengthy diatribe is telling us the one sentence that I quoted here. AAC is shutting down. Rodney Direct is providing his helpline service (and doing a good job from what I hear) and is graciously providing complementary services to the now former AAC subscribers. I think that is what Gregory is saying. It now seems as if Gregory is going into the health insurance brokerage business, but I am not clear on that. My thinking is that AAC did not have a good business plan and it eventually caught up with that group. I wish all of those involved in these activities all the best. Our community has benefited and grown. And it had to be a lot of time and energy expended over these past several years. And now we move on, but with Rodney filling the lead position.
  3. Does anyone know the official hours of operation for the Boquete treasury office? That is where you pay the garbage fee and car plates, etc. TIA
  4. I went back to reread the HuffPost article three times. Nowhere do I read that they were career military. They indicate that they were military in the early part of their married life. If he was career military then why would he have had an issue with the cost of the medical care in the US? The services would have picked up the tab if that was the case. What am I overlooking here?
  5. When I read the Pat and Sailor postings, I got three impressions, appreciation for what News Lady does, support for not publishing emails with missing but important information, and an offering of one way to solve the matter. Nothing negative in any of that. I was not aware, but from what Keith writes News Lady pays for that service out of her pocket. Wow, what a generous and caring person she is.
  6. Boquete Health Fair

    Do they really expect to be able to read this? Dark letters on dark background colors?? Good luck.
  7. I'm trying to find non-offensive words to express my extreme skepticism about that statement!
  8. Whats worse from a health perspective is the black mould that will start forming in the houses. I had that happen many years ago, and it is really hard to come back from that. Lots of paperwork, inspections, and money. The good thing is that houses are not transportable like a vehicle, and I don't expect to see any of those houses show up here in Boquete.
  9. Fenix Cafe

    Dear Fenix person or people, I wish you well. The few times I went to the Fenxi it seemed to be disorganized. And then the selection of the movies were not to my liking. My biggest issue with Fenix was that I could not remember what was happening, and found no way to figure it out. Better marketing skills might have helped,. To late now tho. Two up and two down. All the best to Lucy and now Joy.
  10. I am really disappointed in how this recycling thing is going. Who gives a rip whether there is a recycling place n David? I don't care whether it is a good one or a bad one. I am in Boquete. Are you expecting me to go to David to recycle my discards? What about the fuel required to do that? Not to mention the time, and then only certain items are accepted. Get real. And no feedback about the recent recycling meeting at the library, it appears that is a dead effort. Let the do gooders do some good here in Boquete. Until then, my discards are going into the city trash.
  11. Just curious if you Canadian expats would get better service at the banks here in Boquete if you wrote checks instead of cheques?
  12. Message from US Citizens

    What a poor job of labeling this positing. Are US citizens informing US citizens of this activity? (Actually non-activity.) Never met Penny, and not blaming her. She just sends out this poorly prepared crap.
