REPORTING LOCAL CRIME
I heard that Russell
and Scottie were robbed last week. This problem is becoming a serious one.
Anyway, always file a Demanda in the Ministerio Publico office. We need to do
something about this now that is just beginning. If you know about more of these
cases, set the denuncia and ask for the file number of it. I will try to have a
meeting soon with people who want to help finish this thing and/or talk to the
authorities. - Iker
please keep us informed about all thefts and burglaries and we'll report them
here. - Editor,
BASURA ON BEACHES
As event planners in
Todos Santos, we always budget and have staff on hand for clean up, especially
when it comes to our beaches. When people decide to plan a portion of their
wedding, or forego an event planner all together, clean up is often not included
in the budget. If I were planning a beach ceremony, there would certainly be
staff on hand for set up and clean up. Our aim is to leave the environment in
better condition than we found it. Another good reason to recommend to your
friends and guests, hire an event planner: - Alvaro Colindres http://www.eldharma.com/alvaro-details.htm.

MORE ABOUT BUGS
If you see a cute fluffy
little insect covered with what looks like white or sable fur scurrying around
in the sand, don't pick it up! This is a flightless female wasp, misleadingly
named a velvet ant. In Spanish,this insect is called "mula del Diablo," the
devil's mule. While it stings like the dickens, the pain usually subsides in an
hour or so. The best you can do is to wash the sting site with soap and water
and apply an antiseptic. Some people apply a paste of baking soda and water.
