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

Dear Readers, please keep us informed about all thefts and burglaries and we'll report them here. - Editor, BWU

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. Thanks to The Baja Survivor's Guide
