THE BEACHCOMBER SPEAKS.. ...Or Mumbles Something... .Vieqnes is considered by many to be twice a colony. On this they blam the apathy on the part of government agencies. Either things don't seem to get done or they get s'ed and then get abandoned e_ud Vieques is no fuer ahead. But coneider: it is the he.rdest town to get to from those eir-conditioned San Juan offices thoth you wouldn't thik so when holidays roll around as they do every few days. And even from the standpoint of alphabetical order Vieqnes is right down there at the bottom of the list. But t biggest boogeyman when it comes to aborted or abandoned projects seems to be Inter-Agency Jealousy, at all leveis from here to San Juan to Washington back. If Agency X gets a proposal t]oh then Agency Y we,uts a piece of it or opposes it or nitpicks it to death.And that brings in the new broad of executives on the tax-dollar take: the coordinators the cousuRants. "But just what is it you do, Mr. Q. ?" "Me? Oh, I coordinate." And how about those consultants? Sixtybucks-an-hour and out-oftown! Maybe it's just simpler to lay the blame on stains. ###.

But when the weather stes to chae it's a atter of great conce'n. Wokl that we were also blessed with an ideel weather forecast service. Such does not seem to be the case. Witness the southerly blow on Three Ks Day this yas duLug which many local boats and vsitgrg yachts were sk or damaged as the U.S. Weather Bureau (NOAA) insistently spu their tpe announcg winds d swells from the north. Vieqnes Divers had no u'ouble getti a pegeful of signatures for a letter of protest. Or tke the case of Hun-icane Frederick: according to the Sen Jue.u federal experts the storm woukl pass 128 mils to t south. But the winds got sb'oager e.ud sb'onger al fLually subsided during te mght only to renew sngth from the opposite dil'ection. Still the recording assured us that Frederick would pass far to the GYPSY WOMAN COLUMN Free Consultations c/o The Vieques Times Letrs answered m print as space allows. )UES TIMES May 1987 El Viejo Says... by T.P. "Tourism has some good points "Turismo si que tiene sus punto south. Until a radio uuotmcer from St. Tho got Miami on the phone to report the spmptc of the passing of the eye. No way, said Miar but wait a umuute, what are your map coordinates? The disk jockey gave the government guy the latitude and longtitude the Virgin Islands and the Miami meteorolog his throat and told that case storm shotSd be_. just about.., right over y head Or so the story goes. This doesn't happen all the time but bo interests have sotht out options. They guy in San Juan is in an air-conditioned offk his weather doasn't change much. Besides weather that gets to San Juan has already pa Vieqnes for the most part. So they look for forecasters located upwind of here, whose weather is haadir this way. T'nere's a jazz station LuSt. Croixat99 FM that employs staff meteorologists who special emphasis on boatir interests and se( have a betr track record than San JuanAnd there's the biggie, Radio Antilles in Monsen which repeats the most comprehensive repol from Antigua, way upwind from Vleques. do the whole Caribbean area by zones at a.m. and at 6:00's the most complete kowof but you'llneed to know map coordinates to get a clear picture.

So things look better for the future. But ust how did it get so rim don o the present? Administrator Goazlez, who was appointsd by the Health Secretel-y ia September 1985, explained that the little hospital had been rim for almost 20 years thout administrator due to some "unexplainable" oversight on the part of the authorities. The yearly budget of $I .5mllln, she said, is almost enely eaten up by salaries for the 92 employees end by traportatin end fuel costs. And furtherrnore due to bureaucratic Catch 22's she doesn't get to adminr the bridget allocation, The money is handled jointly by the Fajanlo Regional Office Vieqnes Clty Hali. So when he typewriter or t X-ray machine breaks dovn she has to ship it to the Fajardo office and walt. She has no petty cash to call in a mpe.n'man. And when a doctor needs a quick bottle of aspirin or something, she can't call the drugstore. She has to send a purchase order to City Hall, g City_ Hall office hours, and hope there's someone handy who's authorized to sign it. The Times h fast-hand knowledge of cas in which patients, or their neighbors or famfly, have had to hitch a ride out to the Navy Bee to look for an intravenous unit, a bottle of peroxide, plaster for a ce,t and even o have a oth pulled. Serious emergencies ere medivac-ed to Puerto Rico by plane but it's still no bed of roses for the doctors. Dr. Bethalda MacKeie hes horror stories to tell of bein socked in by a storm while tendir to a bleeding gunshot victim in a little isld-hopper airplane. She feels she was saved by the grace of God and the cool expertise of Visquss pilot Jimmy Adams. She can latgh now "But," she said, "these are not embtzlae planes. I'm not even sure if my insurance would cover these cases." Dr. Csar Calder6n, medical director of the Caner, was openly indnam at the situation. "We simply don't have sufficient medicine or equipment to do what should be done. The dentist can't get a simple hand press to take impressions so in many cases he's limited to extractions. The defibrillaor h been ou for repairs for six years (The defibrillator is the device with shock electrodes to be clamped to the chest in lt ditch efforts to keep the heart pumping.) ] just spent en days without of those cheap little wooden ng'e depressors.

If the maternity ward needs repairs then it should be fixed, not shut down. Some women come as late as pos.'dble so the child can be born in Vieques. Some give bh-th on the plane And if they deliver here the baby s]l h to be taken to Puerto Rico for a bothersome series of tests and injections because officially it "Vieques needs special rules it can't be regulated like some other town on the big island where you can drive on a little further and find another facty if the first one doesn't have what you need.

NOTES ON THE FORT CONDE DE MIRASOL Essay by Carlos Velez Rleckehoff Conde de Nirasol Fort sits on a hill with a commanding view of the town harbor. Its consb'uctlon w ordered in 1845 by Do,n Re.fael de Aistequi Velez, the Count of Mirol and governor of Puerto Rico. His orders to engineer Don Diego Gdvez called for a Stronghouse with four cannons to be u'ained on the port and a Blockhouse to house fifty men, both buildmgs contained in a star-shaped wall of stone and brick.These walls taper from six to eight feet in thickness at the base to about three feet on top. The fort itself is 150-feet long end 70-feet wide. It has a rounded arch 40feet in diameter end an embattled cornice. It also boasts a 55,865gallon cistern with dimensions of 27.5 feet by T0-feet by 18feet in depth. Its curb-stone (sic.) is three-feet hh. Befol'e completion the fort was used to lodge a volunteer force of soldiers from the West Indies, England, Italy, Spn e.ud South America which pledged to serve the local goveFnment. difficulties caused some cornercutting so the outsr walls can be seen to form a rather incomplete star. The fort was latsr used as the municipal jail and as a disciplinary correction facility for uru-uly Spanish troops. Exile to Vieques w part of the punishment for nonconformist behaviour. Armistice ended the Pge 6 Spanlsh-American War on A.ust 12, 1898 and the American was Ised on Vieqnes on September I0, 1898. But the ganuson of I01 men and three Spardsh officers refused o surrender unlil ordered to do so by the Governor. Even then they remained in the fort with nonfunchonel cannone,armed only with carbines and infantry t'ies for seveld days until the final bloodless take-over on September 21, 1898, when, for the first time, the U.S. Flsg was rinsed over the fort. Spein officially ceded Puerto Rico to the Unitsd Staes at the Treaty of Pe.ns on December i0, 1898. The noted blstoru, Dr. althogh the soldiers at the fort never had the opportunity to display their courege, the imposir edifice kept invaders away by its mere presence. The fort is presently admirdstercd by the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture. It is the seat of the CenU'o Culttal Yaureibo Inc., of Vieques. This building is the most important monument on Vleques for peace e.ud cultura. There hopas that the fort become an archeological museum to harbor the large collection of pre-Colombian e!tifacts found here at La Hueca and currently on exhibit at the Univereity of Puerto Rico m Rio Piedras.The people of Vieques also desire that th outstanding scructure be reopened to the public for culturelly enrichi activis such as lectures concerts and that it should also house an historical museum. ## TROPICAL TRIVIA There are two Lo.n.estDays-of-the-Year in Vieques. A question of such thLs as latitude and declension. In New England, or California for that matter, there is only one. That is the day when the sun reaches the northernmost point on its annual eliptical royce: 23 degrees, 26.6 minutes of northern latitude, June 21st to 22nd. But to get there the sun has to pass dh'ectly over Vieques on the way up and on the way back to clss the 18th. parallel; May 12th.and Angust ist. Therefore we have two Longest Days, which should be good for suntan lotion sales. On the other hand we only have one Longest Night, which should still be good for SOet]. yie eLUIE; LEGUILLOU TR,AN SMI SSIOM SERVICE ICANICA GENERAL Saida de!

VOLUME ONE IRALbUCCION THE VIEQUES TIMES VOICE UNA VOZ EN El DESIERTO 8ianca Rivera, organizadora del Cenlro para la Educaci6n de Nios con Impedimentos Mlliples (CENIM), esl clamando para acciGn de parte de las agencias gubernamentales con fines de adelantar la construcci6n de una escuela en La Esperanza. "Acci6n de las agencias s io que se necesita, no meras cartas de endoso y apoyo. Es una cuesti6n de sobrevivenia. Los nitros afectado5 son aislados de las failidades regulates de ]as escuelas p0blicas y nosotros no tenemos ni acoeso a los ,rondos ya asignados pot la legislatura Ai proyecl.o se le asign6 cinco rail d61ares pot el representante Samuel Cepeda y otros cinco rail pot el Senador doaquln Pena Pea. "Pero," eplica la Rivera, "nosotros no vemos ni un cenLavo de este dinero. Se manda a una agencia yes adminisLrado alli," La asignaci6n de Cepeda ha sido canalizada atrevs de la Administraci6n de Servicios 6enerales que hasta ahora ha tumbado el techo della vieja escuela en ruinas que rue asignda a CENIM pot el St. Pedro Hernndez Purcell, director de la Administraci6n de Terrenos quien tambin le di6 una parela de 481 metros en Barrio Santa Maria. El dinero de Pe6a Pea no ha llegado "El problema es," dijo Rivera, "que nos han dicho que el edificio en Esperanza (anteriormente utilizado pot la estaci6n de radio BauUsta WIVV) requiere pot Io menos $53,000 para set restaurado." CENIM se inaugur6 en 1984 con un donativo de ochenta y seis centavos pot un grupo de nios estudiantes quienes querian ayudar a sus hermanos menos afortunados. Ganaron los chavitos vendiendo limbers de leche. Desde entonces so han recaudado mas de seis-mil-d61ares en donativos y actividades de venta, etc. La pr6xima movida es montar un kiosko de reresco5 en el sitio eo Esperanza, Io cual ser operado pot estudiantes. Blanca Rivera, madre de cuatro, es una trabajadora socil en el sistema de Instrucci6n PQblica en Vieques, En el 1986 fur nombrada Trabaladora Socil de Ao en Puerto lico, Cheques de donativos se pueden girar al hombre de CENII'I/86, Box 68, Vieques, P.R. 00765. BEACHCOMBER EL PEINAPLAYA HABLA.., 0 rlurmulla.,, Vieques es considerado pot muchas personas como dos veces una colonia.Por eso achaean la aparente apatia de las agencias gubernamentales, 0 las cosas no se hacen o se empiezan y despues se abandonan y Vieques no progresa. Pero considere: es el pueblo mas dif'icil para llegar desde esas oficinas con aire-acondicionado en San Juan aunque uno no Io pensaria durante los dias festlvos que son cada tantos dias, Y hasta del punto de vista de orden all'abtico Vieques queda all en el rabo de la lista Pero el Cuco mas grande cuando se habla de proyectos abortados o abandonados parece set Celos Inter-Agenci], en todos los niveles de aqul a San duan a Washington y de regreso. $i la Agencia X logra que se apruebe un proyecto entonces la Agencia Y o quiere participar o se opone o Io fiscaliza basra la muerte. Y alli surge la nueva raza de ejecutivos que prolil'eran donde se encuentran los 'tax-dollars': los coordinadores y los sesores. "&gero que eactamenl.e es Io que usted hare, St. "&Yo? Ah, pues,yo...coordino," &Y que lal los asesores? iSesenta pesos I hora y estn de viaje! Puede que sea ma5 seni]lo hechar la culpa al 'status,' BEACH EROSION EROSION DE LA PLAYA (PAGINA ?) La situaci6n en Esperanza es criUca, El 01timo reboso por poco elimina la playa frente a Vieques Divers. Oras Pbllcas moot6 de inmediato una verja de seguridad pero eso es para asegurar que los autos no se moran en el mar, no para prevenir que el mar se mete en la carretera. La alcaldesa anunci6 un plan en agosto del aSo pasado para construir un tipo de malec6n con paseo turistico. El programa tambien incluye una plaza de recreo para los niSos y el dragado de la laguna de siete cuerdas para proveer un refugio para las lanchas de los pescadores y para eliminar un actual criadero de mosquitos. El proyecto se puede considerar urgente, Es un rea ya designada oficialmente zona de Iurismo donde Ias propiedades son tan calienles que uno queen un liempo compraba un solar del gobierno por un d61ar puede vendero por cien rail y hay quienes hablan de rail]ones, Sea eso como sea, hacen falta srias medidas de conservaci6n, Es ms fcil proteger una playa que Fabricar una nueva,,, RECOtIPENSA El Pueblo de Vieques est recaudando rondos para eslimular interns clvico en la invesligaci6n del asesinalo del contratista-residenle llax Schrack.Schrack rue victima de un horrible ataque de mltiples putaladas en su propia residencia en noviembre del aSo pasado, No hubo evidencia de entrada Forzada a la casa y vecinos ban indicado que Schrack tenia visita o visitas cerca de la hora estimada del crimen, pero identificaci6n positiva, oficil, no se ha dado. Elias Garcia, tesorero del rondo de recompensa, inl'orma que hasta ahora ms de $3,5OO hart sido depositado en el banco y que las colecciones continuan. La recompensa es para informaci6n que Iogra el arresto y convicci6n del asesino o asesinos, El jefe de policia, Capitn Juan CaMe, dijo al Times que hay una investigaci6n que continOa, pero a cargo de la Oficina de] Fiscal y de la C.I.C., ambos en Humacao,Affadi6, no obstante, que la policia local, auoque tcnicamenl.e fuera de] caso, coordinaria cualquier informaci6n que se reciba con las agencias en Humacao.
