With great sadness, we announce the passing of Harlow Franklin Newton, Jr. ... one of the more interesting men I have ever met! Many of you probably remember him for years on the beach in front of Tortilla Flats with the signs he made in Spanish & English and always with a good story to share. His mass is today, July 31st at the Cathedral in Perez Zeledon at 4pm, and here is the notice from his wonderful children.

Gloria & Jim Matthews are two of the most loving, incredible people I have ever known in my life and many of you know them and love them too.

Sending their family infinite strength & light.

Last week we wrote about the new animal abuse law and a case that was being heard ... unfortunately, no one was brought to justice, however much awareness was raised. To report suspected cases of animal abuse in Costa Rica, contact the National Animal Health Service (SENASA) at +506 2587-1600. A criminal complaint, or denuncia, can be submitted using the form available online here.
