The Mayor makes a great point.... We are suffering from 'Mainland Problems'..... And this is not the first time.... And the motives have not changed....In fact the only thing that has changed is the names of the victims & culprits...... In 2005 the community got together both local families and expats (yes, good Texans)...... They cleared the island of these folks for awhile and many got the message not to come back. I'm not sure of the details, however the island had a bit of a cleansing and I was told that the 'bad guys' were escorted to Bomba where they were able to work out their differences unencumbered......

I am not familiar with some of the neighborhoods. Is San Pedrito the area between the airport runway and the lagoon?
