Let's Talk Further About Abandoned Animals - In light of Dale Townsend’s recent experience with abandoned pups (see BWO 3/21), I think it appropriate that the community is informed about the priority shifts in financial support that apparently have taken place amongst ‘amigos de los animales’ fundraisers.
Many people still expect that contributions support a physical location where unwanted animals are housed.
During many years we have gotten accustomed to the existence of ‘El Refugio’.
Not everyone yet knows that El Refugio can no longer accept animals, although there still are about 15 dogs there that need new homes.
Bringing animals to the La Paz volunteer group is not an answer. The immense and usually unappreciated work involved in animal sheltering is hard to overstate: The daily cleaning and scrubbing of kennels, the endless wash loads of dirty/infected bedding, the wounded and recovering animals needing attention 24/7, the cleaning of the surgery area as well as the regular bathing of dogs and tick hunting. If we add unwanted Todos Santos animals to another volunteer group we will cause them to burn out sooner than they already will.
The work ‘amigos de los animales’ have done for many years here and still is doing is incredible. I have only gratitude and admiration for those involved. But I request that you please clarify the uses for the raised funds and help the community understand what options are or are not available when the next box of puppies or kittens appears on someone’s door step. I believe we may need to include the option of euthanasia. Obviously a very difficult subject to consider. - Gitte gittelz (-at-) yahoo.com, 612 1188 057, Pescadero

Visit Mexico's Copper Canyon, May 18-26, 2009 - Todos Santos resident and eco-adventure guide Sergio Jauregui is organizing this trip for Baja residents to explore Mexico's answer to the Grand Canyon, Barranca del Cobre, Copper Canyon. The Copper Canyon is home to some of the most spectacular and stunning natural scenery in Mexico's inland territory. Deeper, longer - in fact seven times larger - than the Grand Canyon, the Copper Canyon is actually 20 canyons carved out of the Sierra Madre Occidental by at least six different rivers.
The Tarahumara people, descendants of the Aztecs and fabled long-distance runners, live a simple life in these canyons that has remained largely unchanged for centuries. To learn more about this area and obtain a detailed itinerary please contact Todos Santos Eco Adventures. - Sergio Jauregui, TSEcoAdventures (-at-) hotmail.com, www.tosea.net, 14-50189; 044-612-1613208, Todos Santos

Monthly service starts at $24 per month for unlimited local and long distance calling in the U.S. & Canada, and unlimited calling to over 60 countries for only $15 more.
VoIP Frequently Asked Questions:
How does VoIP / Internet Voice Service Work?
VoIP services convert your voice into a digital signal that travels over the Internet. If you are calling a regular phone number, the signal is converted to a regular telephone signal before it reaches the destination.
If I have VoIP service, who can I call?
You can call anyone who has a telephone number - including local, long distance, mobile, and international numbers. If you are calling someone who has a regular analog phone, that person does not need any special equipment to talk to you.
What Are Some Advantages of VoIP?
You can get a US Phone Number for your VOIP phone in Mexico. You then make calls just as if you were dialing a telephone in the US. Callers can reach you in Mexico by dialing a US Number and your telephone will ring, just as if you and your phone were in the US. Calling features such as VoiceMail, Call Waiting, Call Forwarding, Caller ID, and more are included at no extra charge.
