In today's (Sept 22, 2023) El Caribe newspaper is an article about Brenda Corrie (born in Santo Domingo on December 15, 1964) as she will be the first woman golfist admitted to the Dominican Sports Hall of Fame.Already she is among the first admitted into the Dominican Golf Hall of Fame (until know I had no idea this exist, lol), plus she is the first woman as well.
Lately, Alexandra Mejía Arcalá has been very public about her suffering of psychological and physical abuse by her ex-husband. If her last name sounds familiar, she is related to the founders of the Mejía Arcalá company. Its most widely known product is the Milex milk brand found in supermarkets and colmados all over the DR. She is currently the president of Mejía Alcalá company. A few days ago her ex-husband was arrested on charges of violence against women (he had been running from the law for several months.) Should be interesting to see how all of this plays out.
