The good news is! There was a hearing yesterday where Victor Gonzales failed to appear...the upshot being, he has NO rights to build ANYTHING where he put up the blockage and must remove it. He has 30 days to appeal, but it will do him no good, the law clearly states (now that they got around to looking at the law) that access to any beach is the right of the people. I don't know if there is any bad news ;)
(thanks Doug, I just sat there straining to understand the Spanish, but the lawyer from Culebra kindly gave us the good news in English as well as Spanish!) The meeting was VERY well attended and that was exciting as well, a nice mix of locals and gringos, focused on the love of Culebra. Sweet!
