    Animal Poisoning in San Miguel
    Recently, there has been a lot of discussion regarding the poisoning of animals here in San Miguel. Some have asserted that someone is poisoning food and giving it to or leaving it for animals to find. Others have mentioned that someone is feeding dogs being walked with poisoned treats or kibble and warn owners to beware and warn their dog walkers. Still other claims have been made online regarding activities alleged to be taking place in San Antonio or Centro.

    In the 2017 article by Atención, the case against Susan Jones, who used a pseudonym Norah Hodge (source: complaint labeled as folio 68725, Folder 25370), was described. Jones has been described as a tall, 6ft, thin blonde with straight, shoulder length hair, striking cheek bones, and a thinnish face. Now called by the neighbors “La Mataperros,” (the dog killer), poisoned some twenty animals, 10 of which died. This woman was found guilty in one of the cases and was punished by the authorities. The judiciary found Susan Jones guilty for the death of the three pets. She had to pay a fine of 1,915 pesos (about $100) and also offer apologies to the affected. The process concluded because the defendant decided to grant her forgiveness.

    All of Florida is under a state of emergency and authorities are urging residents to stockpile a week's worth of food and supplies as Hurricane Dorian gathers strength and aims to slam the state as soon as Monday as a Category 4 storm.

    "If you're anywhere on that east coast of Florida, you want to have food, water, medicine for up to seven days," Gov. Ron DeSantis said Thursday.

    Facebook has quietly changed the slogan on its homepage encouraging people to signup.

    The tagline has been changed from “It’s free and always will be” to “It’s quick and easy” — ditching, for the first time in more than a decade, a reference to the fact that it costs nothing to become a user.
