For some reason it took over 7 years to become "official", but finally on the 6th of this month it was published in the state's official newspaper (which makes things like this "official") that our municipio is now known as Zihuatanejo de Azueta instead of José Azueta. Not to belittle the heroic lieutenant from Acapulco who died defending Veracruz against the U.S. invasion of Mexico in 1914, but the name change will make the name of our municipio more recognizable and in tune with the fact that Zihuatanejo has been the equivalent of a "county seat" since it was incorporated and has become the most important town in the municipio since our municipio was carved out of Petatlán and La Unión.

Maybe a little celebration would be in order. ;~)
