Roatanians are natural boxers, but while there is plenty of talent, until recently there were few ways of tapping into it. The shining stars of Roatan boxing made their debut at West Bay’s Paradise Beach Villas events center on July 7 against Alexis Arguello boxing school and Rufo Telles Boxing school from Masaya, Nicaragua. After the main event: Phillip Schneider, Toni Grayson, Danny Ewing, Jaden Ewing, Clement Heath, guest, Carlos Santos, Orlen Forbes.
More than Mango Creek
Some out the islands best kept treasures are on the east side… weay east. On June 19 a group of Texans headed to Port Royal to explore the Mango Creek Lodge and environs. After a delicious Mexican themed lunch, walking a suspended bridge and playing in the freshwater creek the gang headed out back west. Ready to board the Mango Creek Express: Jenny Khan, Sara Khan, Dr. Fareed Khan, Oswaldo Khan, Asad Khan, Tanya Khan, Dr. Rubina Khan, Janie McVicker, Geri Ortiz, Tita Medina, Ellen Johnson, Autie McVicker, Jimbo, Manny Quiroz.
