Our wishes for a full recovery for Flamingo resident John Critchley, who underwent an emergency appendectomy recently in San José. Also, our prayers are with Denio and Ewa Mack from Flamingo. They were in San José and are now in the U.S. seeking emergency and extended medical care for Denio.

Monday, Oct. 8, a dual celebration for Columbus Day and Canadian Thanksgiving Day took place. It honored Colombus’ first voyage to the Americas in 1492 and the Canadian celebration of the harvest and other blessings of the past year.
From time to time, there is an outbreak of distemper in our beach communities. Recently, a major outbreak in Brasilito killed more than 70 dogs. Dawn and Sid Scott of Flamingo had spent several days either vaccinating or taking dogs to Dr. Gilbert in Villa Real to be put mercifully to sleep. Dr. Ramírez, head of SENASA in Santa Cruz, was in the loop to help as well. Please get your dogs vaccinated because distemper is very contagious and a horrible way for a dog to die.
