News, Events and Announcements


First Call For All TS And Area Photographers – Arts Juried Photo Show - ARTS (Artists of Todos Santos) is excited to announce our 1st annual juried photography show at Cafelix starting Feb 4th. In order to make this more of a community event, we have decided to make this show open to everyone who lives here, or in BCS in general. All work will be juried by 2 experienced US judges who are coming to Todos Santos for this event. There are two categories – one being photos taken in, and representative of Baja California Sur, and the other being open to any photo. Prizes will be awarded for the best in show for both categories, together with awards for the winner and two runners up. All accepted work will be displayed in Visions gallery; however, only work submitted by people legal to sell their work in Mexico will be offered for sale.

We are looking forward to a big response from the community. To help us plan for the event, first download the rules and entry form from our website www.artistsoftodossantos.com (look under ARTS Events in the menu for the photo show article and link), and then e-mail us ASAP to indicate your intent to participate with the expected number of photos and their sizes. - Vic Kirby, artistasdetodossantos [-at-] gmail.com, www.artistsoftodossantos.com, 145-0586 (landline), Todos Santos

Driving On The Beach - Just south of Gasparenio Hill there is a stretch of beach where turtles lay their eggs and vehicles keep driving south from there all the way 3-4 kms down the beach. Confiscation of vehicles and/or a hefty fine is the penalty for driving on Federal property. But so far, Grupo Tortugo and the Policia Federal have not responded to emails about this issue. Photos have been taken of many of the vehicles on the beach and are available to be passed along to the authorities. With the help of the Federal Police and/or the Marines, perhaps we can stop this - Name Withheld By Request, Elias Calles

Retreat Center In Baja Sur - Dzogchen Community Retreat Land in Baja Ca Sur. Did you know that there is a Buddhist Retreat Center in the Sierra de Laguna Mountains? It is situated on Los Narabjos Road, up the mountain road from the San Jose Airport. This beautiful 3,000 acre ranch was given to the International Dzogchen Community and is quite a special place to be and practice. "Dzogchen teachings are also called Ati-yoga , or Primordial Yoga. The word yoga is used here as the equivalent Tibetan term naljor, which means awareness of the authentic condition of each individual. - From the Mirror Newsletter These teachings come from Tibet and are translated in to english by Chogyal Namkai Norbu Rinpoche. He and his senior students have given retreats in Baja Sur since 2003. This year they are inviting everyone to a number of special retreats on Yantra Yoga, Sacred Vajra Dance, tantric practices of Chod and Long Life Mandarava as well as introductory talks. An introduction to Yantra Yoga will be in Todos Santos this Thursday at La Arca between 4 and 6 pm on December 17th. For additional events coming up please check the schedule on the web site.

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)


We Want Our Cat Back - Please Help - A good friend of my lost her cat (Darrell) on November 23-24, in the vicinity of Los Cerritos-Pescadero (by Gavilan Hill, about a block East of the "3 Dome" beach front house. Has anyone seen this precious family member? If so, PLEASE call me (Bill) at 044-612-132-4710 or email me at usa13 [-at-] yahoo.com God Bless You and Happy Holidays.

Here's my friend description of our missing family member:"Darrell is a black cat (some of his whiskers are white, otherwise, he is all black). He has medium length hair. There is another black cat out there, but that one is a short-haired cat -- looks like a miniature panther. Darrell doesn't like people much, especially men (I think he was abused as a baby). He recently had surgery on his right front paw to remove his "thumbnail". Other than that, ears look ragged due to fights a long time ago. He's about 14 years old. Eight pounds." With Love, Bill. - usa13 [-at-] yahoo.com, www.bajabell.com, 044-612-132-4710, Pescadero

Concrete Stain, floor, Deck, Anything - Kemiko Stone Tone Stain transforms an ordinary concrete slab into a luxurious floor that resembles marble or glazed stone. When concrete is stained and scored Kemiko creates the appearance of expensive flooring at a fraction of the cost. Unlike paint, Kemiko Stone Tone Stain reacts with the minerals present in the concrete giving it the look and feel of natural stone. Each concrete slab accepts the stain in varying degrees of intensity creating stunning, multi-hued color variations and an uneven surface that looks perfectly aged. Whether working with a neo-classic, Southwestern, eclectic, or strictly traditional decor, Kemiko adapts to enhance any setting.

The Kemiko process surpasses all others in terms of permanence and durability. It will not chip, fade, or peel, and will last the lifetime of the surface to which it is applied. Those suffering from allergies find concrete staining especially appealing and a welcomed change from deep pile carpeting. Kemiko Stone Tone Stain is virtually maintenance free for a carefree lifestyle--simply damp mop as needed. Durable Easy to Maintain Economical Elegant . LEED Compliant . Versatile. Available in eight colors, Kemiko Stone Tone Stain is the perfect choice for both interior and exterior surfaces. Often used for commercial purposes, concrete staining lends a clean, attractive look to driveways, patios, walkways and entrances. It is perfect for high-traffic areas and is very affordable. Kemiko Stone Tone Wax II or Kemiko Stone Tone Sealer II can be applied to further enhance depth of color and provide surface protection. We look forward to assisting you or your client in creating beautiful, durable, and affordable stained concrete projects. - Juan Carlo Vazquez, magiccoast [-at-] cox.net, www.kemiko.com, Baja California Sur
