Las Fincas, Chappell Hill

The last time the plane came over three of the mounted horsemen had entered the corral. As the plane came near, these horsemen dismounted, tied their saddle animals under a tree and all three men went to working among the herd endeavoring to catch some of the horses. No signs of any firing were observed and there did not appear to be any hostilities, although the place looked suspicious. At all the coffee fincas north of the Tuma River area, appeared more deserted than usual.

  • One reason I caddied was that it gave me the privilege of playing the course for free on Mondays, when it was closed to the public.
  • I wanted to become sharp, my senses ready, prepared to react, not wasting energy trying to place myself in the center of what was happening.
  • From the back of the truck, we got a good look at the dense tropical forest we were passing through.
  • All the hotels and pensiones in the city were fully booked; tourists coming for the popular Semana Santa festivities had beaten me to the punch.
  • When he heard a truck transporting empty bottles would be stopping in town on its way to Belize City, he let me know I could catch a ride with it.

Many pack animals, bull carts, and horsemen were observed on all roads throughout the coffee district. There were many people at all the plantations and seemed to be engaged in their usual work. As scientists, practitioners and advocates involved in food and agriculture, we question the grounds for such attacks.

My Days in a Rock ’n’ Roll Band, Part 2

A rumor was circulating that some young gringo travelers had disappeared in that area, but it was never confirmed. We met two Canadian girls whom Charlie invited to go sailing with us, but I wasn’t much of a first mate, and we never got out of the inlet he’d been anchored in. Instead, we hung out on the boat and got high while Charlie played his guitar. On shore later, as we walked through town, Charlie accosted a young British soldier, all the enmity toward the colonial oppressors seeming, at least to me, to explode out of nowhere.

  • I’d put the strap of the paper bag on my head and lug the load that way, leaning forward a bit as I walked, reaching under my left arm to pull out a paper when I got to a house.
  • The Tuma River area was examined from Jinotega to the junction of the Yasica River at Tuma with similar results.
  • As one observer put it, “Those darn bandits seem to know their onions when it comes to hitting ships.”
  • As we finished a wall, I’d use a joint raker to clean excess grout from the mortar joints and then wash the bricks.
  • We did not see the camp nor did we see any movement in the area due to the heavy foliage.
  • This year, on the last night of August, as a crescent moon was rising on the eastern horizon, my friend and I walked one block from her house on Brown Street into that cemetery.
  • The first step required to perform a CVP analysis is to display the revenue and expense line items in a Contribution Margin Income Statement and compute the Contribution Margin Ratio.

Stone Soup had become a gathering place for vegetarians, artists of all stripes, hippies and nonconformists, feminists and left-wing politicos. One could get a “home-cooked” meal for a couple dollars and stick around to meet and talk with interesting folks. As a regular volunteer, I was invited to a staff meeting where a proposal to add a night baking shift was on the agenda. When the staff agreed to do this, I expressed interest in one of the baker jobs and was hired on the spot. Contacts between Guardia and bandits still continue with frequency, but the enemy persists in their old tactics of concealing themselves from airplanes with such skill that no aerial brushes have taken place in the last six weeks. It would appear that the high rate of casualties amongst bandits, due to Guardia and aircraft activities, during the past six months would soon cause the outlaws to see the light.

Statement of international solidarity with Venezuela’s seed law

The headwaters of the Guiguili River were carefully searched. The area on the ridge between the Pantasma and La Rica Rivers from Pavona to Jinotega plain was carefully searched for General Plata’s vigilante patrol but it could not be located. Reconnoitered area around Blandon and on the table land about five miles west of Blandon, a dead native was seen lying on the ground under a tree. The plane circled Las Fincas, Chappell Hill low, and from the appearance of the body it looked as though he had recently died as no buzzards or other carrion were seen. A wound could be seen in the side of the head and from the fresh blood seen, had evidently been wounded in the side. A red handkerchief was lying nearby and undoubtedly this man was one wounded in yesterday’s action. A total of four bombs and 300 rounds of ammunition were expended.
