For all you naturalists, Equilibrio Natural Herboristería is a new store in Surfside in the plaza across the street from La Chola restaurant. Valentina, the owner, decided to make some lifestyle changes and opened the shop, where she sells organic and natural products made here in Costa Rica. She has organic teas, balms, medicines, pure essential oils, vitamins, healthy snacks and more. The store is open 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. For information, call Valentina at 2654-5974 or 8701-2353.

Many folks around town held a special viewing of the FIFA World Cup match between the United States and England June 12 in South Africa, 60 years after the U.S. beat England 1-0 in the 1950 World Cup. The June 12 match was a 1-1 tie.

Christian and Jaime Fautz had a dedication of their baby girl, Eden Joy, at the BeachCommunityChurch, followed by a fun celebration at their home. Friends came to enjoy good food, fellowship and more World Cup soccer.

Congratulations to La Paz Community School students Koral Coopwood, Bianca Javogue, Melanie Duarte, Ashley González, Hazel Sirias, Mackenzie Cramer, Ananda Folger and Yaritza Villegas for their participation in the Regional Guanacaste Arts Festival. Koral took second place in the singing competition and Bianca won first place in the poetry competition.

As a reminder, there is a recycling center at the Flamingo Beach Resort Wednesdays and Fridays, where you can drop off aluminum cans, glass and plastics. We can all help keep our environment healthy by collecting and bagging these items so we don’t see them on the roads and beaches or in the ocean. For more information, call the hotel at 2654-4444.
