    • Ask Ines Mexican Law
      Please feel free to ask a question on Mexican Law and we will do our best to find the answer for you! Mexican law is often confusing and nebulous. Often you can ask a simple question to 5 different lawyers and get 5 different questions. What we do here at San Carlos TV is use all the resources available to us to find the answer. Often we are calling government officials in Mexico City  to get  you the answers. This is free service we offer to residents in San Carlos so if  you are confused on a legal matter let us try to help.

    • Political Forum
      San Carlos TV political forum is now live. The other political forum in San Carlos shut down for some reason and a buddy of mine asked if I would be interested in hosting another so here it is. I am not even gonna post any rules, just try to keep it civil and respect other peoples comments. After all as far as I am concerned the two major political parties are not unlike coke and pepsi. Although they are different brands and have slightly different formulas the reality is they taste almost the same and if you drink to much of either of them they are bad for your health!

    11:56 a. m.

    DESDE 2003 QUE COMPRÉ MI PRIMERA PROPIEDAD EN CDM, ME DI CUENTA DEL ABUSO DE LOS DIRECTIVOS. MAS SIN EMBARGO PAGUE MIS CUOTAS ORDINARIAS Y EXTRAORDINARIAS. CANSADO DE VER LOS ABUSOS Y DESPUÉS DE HABER TRATADO, DE DESPERTAR LA IGNORANCIA DE LOS RESIDENTES HOY POR HOY SIGUE LA MISMA SITUACIÓN.

    YO COMENCÉ PIDIENDO CUENTAS, QUERÍA VER EN QUE SE ESTABA GASTANDO MI DINERO, COMO TODO BUEN CONTADOR, (ESTA FUE MI CARRERA EN LA UNIVERSIDAD DE SONORA). SOLICITE INFORMACIÓN DE DISTINTAS MANERAS, TALES COMO; VERBALMENTE, ASÍ MISMO ME PIDIERON QUE LO HICIERA POR ESCRITO, Y ASÍ LO HICE, Y NO HUBO RESPUESTA. DESESPERADO LO TUVE QUE HACER POR MEDIO DE UN NOTARIO PÚBLICO Y AUN ASÍ NO ME ENTREGARON INFORMACIÓN. TUVE QUE LLEGAR A DEMANDAR Y HAN HECHO CASO OMISO, PERO LA JUSTICIA SE ENCARGARÁ DE ESCLARECER, TODAS LAS IRREGULARIDADES.

    ES TRISTE QUE HAN ENGAÑADO A LA MAYORÍA DE LOS RESIDENTES DE CDM, ESPECIALMENTE A LOS EXTRANJEROS. SIEMPRE QUISE DESPERTARLOS Y HOY POR HOY, LA MAYORÍA SIGUE INDIFERENTES E INCRÉDULOS.

    HOY ESTE DÍA EL JUEZ CONFIRMÓ LA MULTA A CDM POR NO CUMPLIR CON LA SENTENCIA Y APARTE DE ESO ESTARÁ DANDO AVISO AL MINISTERIO PÚBLICO, PARA OBLIGARLOS A CUMPLIR LA SENTENCIA (RENDICIÓN DE CUENTAS). OBVIAMENTE ESTO NO SE LES INFORMARÁ EN LA REUNIÓN, ESTO ES DE LAS COSAS QUE UDS., RESIDENTES NO SE DAN CUENTA POR OBVIAS RAZONES.

    CDM HA TENIDO LOS MEJORES ABOGADOS, SIN EMBARGO, ESTO NO LA LIBERA DE LA MAGNITUD DE SUS PROBLEMAS. ES ENTENDIBLE QUE CUALQUIER ABOGADO LE DIRÁ A CDM “SÍ, YO TE AYUDO” Y PROMETEN RESOLVERLES LOS PROBLEMAS, PERO LOS MISMOS ABOGADOS SABEN QUE ESO ES IMPOSIBLE Y EN LO QUE SON “PERAS O MANZANAS”, ELLOS COBRAN SUS ELEVADOS HONORARIOS.

    POR OTRA PARTE, HAN APELADO LA SENTENCIA DEL JUEZ; DEL CASO DE GASTOS Y COSTAS, QUE ILUSOS. DE NUEVO RESULTARÁ EN MÁS GASTO DE HONORARIOS Y SERVICIOS PARA LOS ABOGADOS.

    MUY PRONTO ESTARÁN LAS DEMANDAS PENALES, EN CONTRA DE LOS SEÑORES, KEN, ESCOTT Y DIANA CIMETTA…QUIERO VER DE QUÉ MANERA COMPRUEBAN SUS IRREGULARIDADES.

    PD. ADJUNTO ENCONTRARÁ EL COMPROBANTE DE RESOLUCIÓN DE JUEZ, DE MULTA Y ENVIÓ DE CASO AL MINISTERIO PUBLICO, POR DESACATO.

    FJV.

    I BOUGHT MY FIRST PROPERTY IN CDM, IN 2003, AND RIGHT AWAY I REALIZED ABUSE OF DIRECTORS. HOWEVER I CONTINUED TO PAY MY ORDINARY AND EXTRAORDINARY´S DUES. SICK AND TIRED OF ABUSES AND AFTER TRIED TO WAKE IGNORANCE OF THE RESIDENTS, UP TO DATE RESIDENTS STILL ARE IN THE SAME SITUATION.

    I STARTED ASKING FOR MONEY´S MANAGEMENT, I WANTED TO SEE IN WHAT THEY WERE SPENDING MY MONEY, LIKE ALL GOOD COUNTER (THIS WAS MY CAREER AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SONORA). I DID INFORMATION REQUEST IN SO DIFFERENT WAYS SUCH AS; VERBALLY, AND ALSO THEY ASKED ME TO DO IT IN WRITING, SO I DID, AND I GOT NO RESPONSE. DESPERATE I HAD TO DID IT THROUGH A NOTARY PUBLIC AND STILL NO INFORMATION WAS GIVEN TO ME. I HAD TO GET TO SUE AND IGNORE HAVE DONE, BUT JUSTICE WILL CLARIFY, ALL THE IRREGULARITIES.

    SADLY THEY HAVE FOOLED TO MOST RESIDENTS IN CDM, ESPECIALLY FOREIGN. ALWAYS I WANTED TO AWAKE RESIDENTS ABOUT THIS CIRCUMSTANCES BUT UNTIL TODAY, MOST ARE STILL CARELESS AND UNBELIEVING ABOUT THESE SITUATIONS.

    TODAY THE JUDGE CONFIRMED THE CDM FINED FOR NOT COMPLY WITH THAT JUDGMENT AND THE JUDGE WILL BE GIVING NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR, TO FORCE THEM TO COMPLY WITH THE JUDGMENT (ACCOUNTABILITY INFORMATION). THIS OBVIOUSLY WILL NOT BE INFORMED IN THE MEETING (NOV 5TH), THIS IS THE THINGS THAT RESIDENTS WILL NOT REALIZE FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.

    CDM HAS HAD THE BEST LAWYERS, HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT ENOUGH TO SET IT FREE OF THE MAGNITUDE OF ITS LEGAL PROBLEMS. UNDERSTANDABLY, ANY LAWYER WILL TELL CDM “YES, I CAN HELP YOU” AND PROMISE TO SOLVE THEIR PROBLEMS, BUT THE SAME LAWYERS KNOW THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE AND THEY WILL RECEIVE THEIR HIGH FEES, AGAIN.

    MOREOVER, THEY HAVE APPEALED THE JUDGE’S RULING; CASE OF EXPENSES AND COSTS. WHICH WILL RESULT SPENDING IN FEES AND SERVICES FOR LAWYERS.

    WILL SOON CRIMINAL CLAIMS, AGAINST KEN, SCOTT AND DIANA CIMETTA … I WANT TO SEE HOW THEY WILL DEAL WITH THE IRREGULARITIES DETECTED.

    P.S. ATTACHMENT: PROOF OF RESOLUTION OF JUDGE FINE AND SENDING CASE TO THE PUBLIC PROSECUTOR.

    FJV.

  2. Still curious. Could someone tell me if the issue of rules, fees, fines, parking rules etc. etc. matter if the property were actually private and not owned by Guaymas? Essentially a privately owned condominium project?

  3. You will be happy to learn that all is good in CDM now. Everyone seemed happy with the decisions that came from the meeting today. CDM does have the right to impose rules and fines within the law and is in fact the owner of the land, roads, services etc. An amicable settlement has been arranged regarding the use of our roads and it was all done when everyone got to have their say without the threat of lawsuits. Reasonable people acting reasonably.

  4. fine was forgiven and no one can park trailers and rv’s in the hood. a pleasant and logical conclusion. issues of the HOA rights are resolved.

  5. The board made it very clear on their position on the issues up for vote last weekend. Having them count the votes therefore seems like a conflict of interest. I also find it very odd that after four days they are unable to give us any results of the vote even though it’s only 100 and some odd votes to Count.

  6. I’ve been reading your story and pictures of the hurricane. How devastating! I’m curious how the pelican is doing.

  7. Just read your post.Was thinking of moving out of Trumpland(I’m in AZ).Sounds like the”fourth estate”exists down there too.Anything improve since the post or has it become Zetaland?Maybe no difference in the long haul.

  8. As far as violence in San Carlos, “things” have improved. But Guaymas and Empalme and the areas around here are still quite bad. I have been out of town for a month or so and have not been paying attention to the level of cartel violence lately. I still believe that much of the violence is not published in media outlets.

  9. I recently visited San Carlos, Sonora, and learned about the deadly dolphinarium of San Carlos and was appalled. I am compelled to do something. I am an educator and semi-professional marine biologist from the United States who documented and published an article of the wild dolphin behavior and populations on the southern Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. I also co-founded the non-profit Talamanca Dolphin Foundation there, which worked to promote education, research, protection and responsible eco-tourism with visitors and people in the small village of Manzanillo, Talamanca, Costa Rica. It was a very successful, grass-roots effort. I recently visited San Carlos, Sonora, and learned of the notorious Dolphinarium of San Carlos from your news article of 2013. I was sickened by the illegal and cruel captivity of the dolphins there. However, I was proud to read about the valiant work and commitment by Biologist Maria del Sol Guerro to save and protect these captive dolphins. At the same time, I was excited to see wild dolphins in the bays. I think San Carlos is an excellent place to do something that would protect these wild dolphins, while at the same time become a positive and economic eco-tourism attraction. It could be based on the model that worked for us in Manzanillo, Costa Rica. I would love to share this information with Marisol or anyone else who would be interested. It could even be an arm of the government of Sonora, to replace the idea of reopening the dolphinarium. In Costa Rica, the Foundation started responsible dolphin-watching tours conducted by trained local boatmen/women, which turned out to be a great benefit to the local economy while at the same time educating and protecting the wild dolphins. I am convinced that educational, ecologically sound dolphin-watching tours would be much more attractive to most US and Canadian visitors than going to a dolphinarium. I would greatly appreciate your help in contacting Marisol, or the right person for this information. Thank you for your most important in-depth news coverage of these events, and any help you could give me.

  10. Hi Ann, I actually run a relatively new non profit here , worldsaquarium.org

    Our wild dolphins in San Carlos are always on my mind and I have been planning on doing a research project on them for quite some time since no one at the moment is actively studying them. The local pod has already become a huge tourism draw to San Carlos and I would say, anecdotally, that 80% of the boat tours in San Carlos during summer months spend time looking for the dolphins and trying to interact with them. I would also say most of the charter captains have been given no training on dolphin friendly boating procedures or know much at all about dolphins in general. I myself often take my sailing students over to the estuary and sail with and around them on our 32 foot monohull. Just last week I was sailing with them and am going to start a data base of ID shots.

    Not even my good friend and local PHD Marine Mammal Biologist Juan Pablo Gallo knows exactly how many dolphins currently live in San Carlos. I don’t think he has had a grad student do any research here for over a decade now.

    I would love to chat with you about the program in Costa Rica and how we might be able to incorporate some of that here. Drop me an email at the following address when you have a moment!! worldsaquarium@gmail.com

    Saludos, Vince

  11. We were complaining back in 2015, now in 2017 we are paying almost double of what it seems overcharged already

  12. Yes the water rate has gone up 50% in 2017 and there will be no improvement in services or investment in infrastructure.

  13. Carl was a friend of mine during high school. He was always willing to take me sailing or just out for a drive. I am saddened to learn of his passing….this hurts the heart.

  14. Now they have just brought 4 more dolphins THIS WEEK to the deadly Delfinario. The Governor says it is for therapy for children. Where did they get them? They have expanded the facility!!!!

  15. There is no scientific evidence that “dolphin therapy” with captive dolphins benefits children with autism or other disorders. (Hal Herzog, PhD. Psychology Today) In fact there are risks and costs involved that are hard to justify. I would guess that the real reason that the Governor, and those with economic interests in developing San Carlos, are the potential beneficiaries of a newly “stocked” Delfinario. I don’t know if they have also considered the ethical question of holding captive dolphins, whether illegally captured or transferred from another facility. I would like to propose an alternative that has worked for us. I led a positive, non-profit program in Manzanillo, Costa Rica, which promoted education, research, protection and responsible eco-tourism with the wild, resident coastal population of Tucuxi (Sotalia guinensis) and Bottlenose (Tursiops truncates) dolphins in near coastal waters. Through education and training of local boatman of the village, we helped establish an on-going “Dolphin Watching” program that has continued to this day. There is a big international interest in visitors and scientists in watching and learning about the wild dolphins there. This effort has protected the welfare of the dolphins, and inspired hundreds of visitors and scientists since 1998. I would be happy to share our positive experience with any in San Carlos who would like to establish a similar project. This could be a positive alternative to keeping captive dolphins for questionable motives. Ann DiBerardinis, Talamanca Dolphin Foundation, Manzanillo, Talamanca, Costa Rica.

  16. Same thing going on in Ejido Miramar. Threatening letters, unable to speak at meetings, harassment, power grabbing people who feel they are above the law. Paid fees for years, but then the power hungry got on the board, even though we have no “legal” association. With no transparency, ability to offer suggestions or have any adult conversation we quit paying. Have not received communication from the board while a dues paying member or not for the past 7 years and have been living here 20 years.
