Picnic and calypso good weekend bets
By the A.M. Costa Rica staff
The weather looks good for weekend activities, including the American
Colony Committee picnic Saturday.
The Instituto Meteorológico Nacional warned of high winds for

The Weather Underground, A.M. Costa Rica's weather service, says there
is a slight chance of thunder showers Saturday afternoon, The service
estimates just 2 millimeters of rain in the Central Valley.
Picnic organizers have wisely concluded the event at 1 p.m. each year
to avoid possible afternoon showers.
Also this weekend is the calypso festival in Cahuita on the southern
Caribbean. There may be some rain, but nothing to the extent that
ravaged the coast from June 20. The event starts today and runs through

policy nets 2,949 this year
By the A.M. Costa Rica staff
The Fuerza Pública stop-and-frisk policy has resulted in 2,949
arrests in San José over the last five months, the agency said
Police routinely stop individuals and make them turn out their pockets.
Those who are encountered by police usually are younger males.
That's why the biggest infraction found in the streets are persons who
are behind on their child support payments, said the Fuerza
Pública. Failing to pay what is known as pensión
alimentaria can bring police with an arrest warrant. Or
be flagged when police check their identity on the street.
Being behind on child support results in a ride in the perrera, the
paddy wagon, just as if the person was accused of a higher crime. They
usually go free after a relative posts the appropriate amount of money.
The second most common reason for being detained on the street are due
to arrest warrants involving crimes, said police.
Fuerza Pública officers stop individuals without any sort of
probable cause and then search them. Frequently they find small amounts
of drugs. The same policy is enforced on the highway when police pull
over motorists randomly and then search the vehicle.
Solar plane due to reach Hawaii today
By the A.M. Costa Rica wire services
A solar-powered Swiss airplane is scheduled to touch down in Hawaii
today after a record-breaking flight across the Pacific Ocean, the
riskiest leg of its 35,000-kilometer trip around the world without a
drop of fuel.
Solar Impulse 2 pilot Andre Borschberg has now beaten the previous
longest solo piloting record that was held by American adventurer Steve
Borchberg has taken 20-minute naps during the journey in the
unpressurized cockpit while the aircraft was on autopilot.
Si2 flew out of Nagoya, Japan, early Monday after an unscheduled
month-long stop. The aircraft was diverted to Nagoya because of
bad weather at the beginning of June on its trip from Nanjing in
eastern China to Hawaii. Its final destination is Abu Dhabi.
Si2 is the brainchild of two Swiss scientists, Borschberg and Bertrand
Piccard. It took them 12 years to build the aircraft.
The carbon fiber single-seat Si2 has a 72-meter wingspan, which is
longer than the wingspan of a Boeing 747, and weighs about as much as a
car. The 17,000 solar cells built into the wings harness the sun's
Piccard and Borschberg say they are not out to revolutionize the
aviation industry, but are instead aiming to demonstrate that actual
alternative energy sources and new technologies can achieve what some
The aircraft's route included stops in Oman, India, Myanmar and
China. After its Pacific voyage, the plane will make up to three
stops in the U.S., touching down in Phoenix, Arizona and New York City,
and possibly another location depending on weather conditions.
The final legs after crossing the Atlantic include a stopover in
southern Europe or North Africa before arriving back in Abu Dhabi,
where the journey started, in late July or early August.
Another complaint against ex-legislator
By the A.M. Costa Rica staff
Prosecutors confirmed Thursday that another woman has filed a complaint
against Justo Orozco Álvarez, the former legislator who was
detained on a sexual abuse charge Tuesday. Orozco is head of the
Renovación Costarricense political party.
Prosecutors said that the second complaint originated on the same day
as the first.
