  1. After the usual announcements at the beginning of the weekly BCP Tuesday Morning Meetings on May 1st, 2018, emcee Nikki Steele introduced Dr. Maria Ruiz for this well-attended presentation on the impact of immigration (North Americans, Venezuelans, Colombians, etc.) on the future of Panama, the upside and downside of the new relationship with China, and the struggle to move Panama from the third world to the first world, etc. Here is the meeting announcement of this presentation as posted on CL: Presentation Materials Click Here to download a PDF version of the presentation materials used by Dr. Ruiz.

  2. Introduction After the usual announcements at the beginning of the weekly BCP Tuesday Morning Meetings on March 27th, 2018, emcee Sheila Strunk introduced Dr. Paul Myers for this well-attended presentation about Volcan Baru. Dr. Myers had given this same presentation earlier this year, and it was a standing room only audience, with people trying to get into the theater but not able to do so for space reasons. Accordingly, Dr. Myers was approached about doing a repeat presentation so that others could hear his presentation. Again at this second briefing about Volcan Baru it was a packed audience.This time, however, his presentation was recorded for posterity. This posting provides access to the recording of his presentation. Here is the meeting announcement of his repeat presentation as posted on CL: Contact Information Dr. Paul Myers, email paul.myers600@gmail.com Presentation Materials Click Here to download a PDF version of the presentation materials used by Dr. Myers.

  4. This is another in a series of audio podcasts by Chiriqui.Life. The subject of this podcast is an organization rather than an individual, specifically the Boquete Community Playhouse (BCP). The underlying reason for this podcast is to provide an opportunity for three of the recently elected BCP officials to share their vision for what they want to achieve, and secondly to let the community know what they can do to help the BCP bring its vision to fruition. This podcast includes Phil Bennett (BCP President), Penny Barrett (BCP Vice President), and Jan Thompson (BCP Membership Chairperson). The triggering incident behind this podcast was an email by Phil Bennett that was distributed via News.Boquete. That email was about the closing of the Fénix Café at BCP at the end of September 2017. It seemed appropriate to provide BCP with an opportunity to elaborate on the bigger picture about the future of BCP through the eyes of the recently elected council members. Here is a link to Phil's triggering email: http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/7108-a-letter-to-the-community-from-bcp/. We learned several things as we produced this podcast. One interesting change is that BCP has previously been known as Boquete Community Players, but there is strong support for recasting the name to better reflect the scope of the activities that BCP undertakes. BCP is now to be known as the Boquete Community Playhouse. Going further, the bottom line for how the community can help remains that of volunteering -- be it as a stagehand, doing carpentry and set building, offering ideas for plays and performances and theater use ideas, being an artistic director, staging of musicals, etc. Volunteering does not mean that you are committing to full time involvement, but rather offering your support, and then following through. And finally, it is clear that the BCP management really wishes to become more multicultural in its activities and in audience participation.

  5. This is another in a series of audio podcasts by Chiriqui.Life, but a unique one. The subject of this podcast is Elba Maria De Las Mercedes Landau del Cid, with the short version of her name being Elba Landau. She is known to family and friends simply as Elba, and she is joined in this English language podcast with her long time friend, Maria Boyd, in case of language issues. There is a bit of coincidence in how this podcast got scheduled, and some differences in how it is being published from the typical CL audio podcast. Price Peterson, a very long time resident of this area, was recently the recipient of an award that was presented at the Biblioteca de Boquete. [Click Here for the postings about that recognition ceremony.] In a conversation with Price shortly after that ceremony, I (Bud) had an interesting dialogue about the comments made by Carlos Enrique Landau; Price's response was that the Landau family is quite large and contributed significantly to Boquete during the early 1900s. Price then suggested that we interview Elba Landau (a cousin of Carlos Enrique Landau) because she is very knowledgeable about the history of Boquete. And so we set out to interview her. Elba lives in Bajo Boquete. Marcelyn and I would check for her presence at her home as we were running errands in town. We finally connected, and she graciously accepted our invitation to participate in a podcast recording session. Among other achievements in her life, she taught piano and that included living for a period of time in the US, and that was when and where she learned the English language, however, she is a bit shy about admitting to such bilingual skills. To help Elba feel more comfortable about the language issue, we included one of our neighbors, Maria Boyd, who has known Elba for many years; they consider each other to be good friends. Thus this podcast came to be scheduled. Given the length of the recording session (not planned, but it just happened that way), we have decided to break Elba's podcast into segments based on the time period involved or events discussed. This podcast with Elba and Maria is the first segment. This podcast consists of Elba's recollections about Bocas del Toro and the Boquete areas of more than 110 years ago. Her grandfather arrived in the Bocas del Toro area from Germany in the early 1900s, and then her grandfather and father (aged twelve at the time) moved from the Bocas del Toro area to Boquete in 1915. Elba is a long time resident of Boquete, having been born in the family residence in Jaramillo Arriba. She has never married, but has a large extended family and many friends, has traveled quite a bit, and is passionate about certain issues, especially the environment. Again, note that the content in this podcast consists of Elba's recollections; there may be historical inaccuracies. But regardless, it is still interesting information. To listen to Elba's podcast, click below on the white, right-pointing triangle (arrow) on top of an orange circular background. If you see two options below, we recommend using the "Listen in browser" option as opposed to the "Play on SoundCloud" option. This first segment of Elba's complete podcast is 20m 16s duration, and covers the period from the early 1900s until about 1915. Additional audio recordings will be posted as they complete postproduction processing.

JR Pazo was the main speaker, who was representing both organizations. JR was invited to speak at the Tuesday Morning Meeting series on June 6, 2017. Here is a link to the meeting announcement: http://www.chiriqui.life/topic/6137-tuesday-talks-veterans-assistance/. Introduction After the usual announcements at the beginning of the weekly BCP Tuesday Morning Meetings, emcee Merl Will-Wallace introduced JR Pazo for this well-attended presentation.

  9. Introduction After the usual announcements at the beginning of the weekly BCP Tuesday Morning Meetings on August 15, 2017, emcee Penny Barrett introduced Betsy Barbeau for this well-attended presentation. The discussion topic was the US Veteran Affairs (VA) pension benefits for those US veterans needing "Aid and Attendance" services. The Aid and Attendance pension benefit was first enacted by President Dwight David Eisenhower in the 1950s. Aid and Attendance is a benefit that the VA doesn't readily tell veterans about. This posting documents that meeting, including the contact information, the presentation materials, pictures, and an audio recording of the presentation and the Q&A session. Here is the meeting announcement as posted on CL: Contact Information Betsy Barbeau (a US citizen, residing full time in Volcan, Chiriqui Province, Panama) Email: betsy@frankandbetsy.com Telephone: +507 6427-5937 Telephone: +1 (919) 795-9509 (magicJack , which rings in Panama) Presentation Materials Click Here to download a PDF format of the presentation materials used by Betsy for her discussion about VA benefits.

  10. This is another in a series of audio podcasts by Chiriqui.Life. The subject of this podcast is the PanaBandas project. PanaBandas is the brainchild of Michael Jason Stone; he prefers to be called simply "Stone". PanaBandas is to be an annual, national-level band competition held in the Boquete area. The central idea behind PanaBandas is twofold: to motivate Panama's youth to be involved in music, and thus move away from drugs, gangs, and similar lifestyle options, and to expose Panama's young musical talent to an international audience via a first prize of a recording studio session. There are four principals in the PanaBandas undertaking: Stone (Canadian, resident in Boquete) is the President and CEO, Carlos Sanchez (Panamaño, resident in Panama City) is the Vice President, Nan Landsman (US, resident in Boquete) is the Secretary, and Vicky Phelps (US, resident in Boquete) is the Treasurer. The recording session for this podcast included only Stone and Nan, and was recorded on July 28, 2017. However, this podcast was not released for public viewing until the venue and the dates for the first band competition were firm. The final commitments by all involved entities have now been achieved. The first PanaBandas competition will be held at the Boquete Fair Grounds on December 15th, 16th, and 17th, 2017. The gates will open at 8:00AM on all three days and the event activities will start at 9:00AM all three days. The event activities at the Fairgrounds will end at 9:00PM on Friday the 15th and Saturday the 16th, and at midnight on Sunday the 17th. Ticket prices for daily general admission will be as follows: 7 years and under - Free, 8-12 years - $2.00, 13 years and older - $5.00. There are also special VIP 3-day backstage passes available at $75.00 each. The parents of each competitor will receive free 3-day VIP backstage passes. PanaBandas has been in the planning stage for two years, and the principals are finalizing all the specifics for the first of many annual band contests. This podcast includes information about Stone and Nan, how and when they came to Boquete, and what caused them to begin putting together PanaBandas, their vision of what PanaBandas is, and how PanaBandas is to be executed to achieve its goals, etc. PanaBandas is an expansive undertaking that is working toward sponsorship of an annual, nationwide contest among bands. A band is defined as at least two musicians, and the musicians must be amateurs who live permanently in Panama. There are three age groups for bands: Junior (12 and under), Teen (13 to 17), and Senior (18 and over). There are three different genres of music: rock, Latin, and other. Listen to this podcast to begin to grasp the magnitude of the project, which sponsors are being sought, how PanaBandas is to be managed, what the prizes will be, what resources are being pursued, etc., etc. Potential sponsors, hopefully to include the Panamanian government (education, tourism, etc.), are considering their sponsorship roles. Volunteers will be needed to help during the three days of competition.

  11. This is another in a series of audio podcasts by Chiriqui.Life. The subject of this podcast is Kris Berg of Howling Success K9 Services. Kris is a native Californian who quickly sensed that her life's passion is in the care of animals, especially dogs; she prefers to use the term canines rather than dogs. She moved several times to various states in her earlier professional life, but each new venture was related to animal care, the prevention of animal cruelty, and education. Approximately ten years ago Kris' brother-in-law met someone living in the Bocas del Toro area, and that caused Kris to do some online research about that area. What she discovered was a huge spay/neuter crisis that needed some professional guidance. Kris packed up her car with her three dogs and her most needed worldly possessions, and with the assistance of a nephew, the two of them drove to Bocas del Toro. Kris became a full time resident of Panama at that point, sight previously unseen. That 12 day odyssey is something that she quickly confesses is not something she would repeat. Kris relocated to the Potrerillos area about six years ago, and established her new homestead, stating that this is her last move. She raises dogs, especially Doberman that have been imported from Argentina and Europe, and shows dogs in various domestic and international competitions. Kris has a special interest in how dogs can help with children and the handicapped, and talks about the wonderful support for malnourished children at Nutre Hogar in David.

  12. This is another in a series of audio podcasts by Chiriqui.Life. The subject of this podcast is Dottie Atwater. Dottie got her pilot's license at the age of 20, has done scuba diving, sky diving, ridden horses in the Big Bend area and into Mexico, etc., etc., etc. In other words, she is a proactive participant in the adventures of life. Houston was her last base in the US prior to moving to Volcán in 2004 after a long career in real estate. Dottie found her passion in taking care of domestic pets, especially dogs. During the course of our recording session with Dottie, we learned that she never really thought of herself as a pet person, but she became aware of and responded while seeing the poor situation for animals in her area. Dottie now is the driving force behind the spay/neuter clinics in the Volcán area. She does not seek publicity, but consented to our request for an interview for our audio podcast series. Dottie gives tirelessly and endlessly to support pets and to help educate others with the goal of improving life for the animal kingdom. Dottie may be a humble individual, but describes herself as a "pit bull" when it comes to animal welfare. Her story deserves to be shared. Dottie expressly wants to recognize the assistance she received during the nascent days of the Volcán spay/neuter clinic: Contact Information Spay/neuter clinic contact information: the clinic's (English) cell is 6517-8752 or José Espinosa (Spanish) at 6891-0999, email: muffiemae@gmail.com, website: www.spaypanama-chiriqui.org.

  15. This is the seventh in a series of audio podcasts by Chiriqui.Life. The subject of this podcast is Dan Porter of Twin Wolf Technology Group. He describes himself as a country boy who found his passions to be (a) computers, and (b) casino gaming and poker. Dan first came to Panama City in 2009 under a contract to bring American-style casino gaming (especially poker) to Panama. He arrived with his wife of 35 years for the multi-year contract. Upon completion of that contract, he found that he liked Panama so much that he decided to stay, but in the Chiriqui highlands. However, his wife did not share the same enthusiasm for Panama, leading to what is described as the world's most amicable divorce on record. Dan continues his two passions, and supports computer clients in various countries using remote technology. He then met and married his second wife, Clara, who is Colombiana. That marriage began a long series of issues with immigration status in Panama, with the result that Dan and Clara are relocating to Colombia. Dan goes into some detail about his experiences with immigration in both Panama and Colombia, as well as Panamanian culture.
