if you go, wear as few clothes as decency permits. I’ve been once, and it was hotter than four hells. There were some interesting aspects, but I was too hot to appreciate them. I do recall that there was plenty of cold beer, though, and that I drank far too many to ward off a heat stroke. ?

Police at the Caldera checkpoint are looking for folks returning from David who've had a few too many.

Busted for drinking and driving on the way home last night was former Social Development Minister Guillermo Ferrufino. He was also driving with an expired license.

He is still facing money laundering charges from acts of corruption committed during the previous government.

He was the one of the guys who cried when he was busted, not from guilt or remorse, but because he got caught and knew he was going to jail.

Timely warning, Keith. As is my practice, I wasn't driving the day I had too many beers at the David Fair.

I've been working the Chiriqui Storage booth at the feria in David for the past 3 days. Luckily, most of the business booths are in air-conditioned buildings. I will swear to you that every other booth is a residential development sales booth. Add in all the booths for the banks and you've got 95% of the booths classified. I will also swear to you that every single person in David attends the fair -- many of them multiple times.

They say it's the best time to negotiate a good price on a new car. I know it's a good time to get some nice patio furniture at good prices. And Bonnie is correct -- about 100 booths selling beer.

By the way, the annual Cablegada is today (Monday) and Avenida F Sur ("old McDonald's Road") will be closed. Then the  president is coming to David to inaugurate the new Kenny Serracin stadium on Thursday. Who was Enrique "Kenny" Serracin anyway?

Remembering Kenny Serracín

Kenny Serracín worked in the banana farms of the Barú area, it was here that he started where he began his baseball practices.
Then Kenny Serracín worked as a physical education teacher at the Doleguita school in the district of David. Years later when they start to build the Chiricano Coliseum Kenny Serracín works in the same as manager of the stadium.
In 1944 Kenny Serracín represents Chiriqui in the Major Baseball championship, he played as third baseman and receiver.

Kenny Serracín remembered by many for his several years of dedication as director in charge of selections of Chiriqui in both the major and the youth, also took care of the small leagues in the District of David.
In the 70s Chiriquí begins a new productivity in baseball this sport is reorganized in the province with the help of Carlos Titi Alvarado, Brenes and Serracín and other characters.

In honor of Kenny Serracin the Chiricano stadium bears his name, the home of the juvenile and eldest of the Valle de la Luna.
