The Public Services Regulatory Authority (ARESEP)has a new phone line for complaints about electricity, water, gasoline, bus, gasor any other public service. The number is 8000-ARESEP (8000-273737), and you cancall every day, including weekends, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. This is great newsfor those of us who are frustrated with some of the systems here.

The inshore fishing has been great lately.Area resident Davis Henley recently caught a 38-pound snook in the Isla Damas estuary on ahomemade handline after a good 35-minute fight. He said his catch made greatceviche for his staff at Hotel Byblos.
