Governor Opposes Paredones Amarillos Mine Project - At the urging of Congresswoman Esthela Ponce Beltran, Governor Narciso Agundez Montaño finally agreed to meet with representatives of Agua Vale Mas Que Oro. At this morning's meeting the group was able to fully express the concerns of the Todos Santos community and present the Governor with petitions that demonstrate wide opposition to the Paredones Amarillos mining project. Scientists also attended the meeting from the University Autonoma of Baja California Sur and CIBNOR, as well as representatives of SEMARNAT and aids to Congresswoman Ponce.

At the end of the two-hour meeting the Governor announced that he would vote against the change of zoning in the Sierra de la Laguna Reserve that would permit mining. He also made a formal administrative request that SEMARNAT suspend permits allowing the company to initiate mining and that federal agencies formally extend the limits of the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere reserve. Yesterday Congresswoman Esthela Ponce introduced federal legislation to cancel the mining permits for the Paredones Amarillos mine, the Governor says he will support the legislation. Governor Agundez stressed the importance of developing sustainable projects in the mountain communities that will offer employment to the many families living in the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere.

The Governor's announcement follows an intense week of protests and anti mining activities in Todos Santos, La Paz and Los Cabos. Our local Congresswoman Ady Nunez Abin introduced a resolution in the state congress opposing the mine and Municipal President Rosa Delia Cota Montaño made public statements in opposition to the Paredones Amarillos project. Senator Josephina Cota Cota on the federal level is also applying pressure. The Governor's public opposition to the project is an enormous milestone, nevertheless, we are also keenly aware that the mining company will fight on the federal level to open the mine. Agua Vale Mas Que Oro is prepared to take the battle as far as is necessary to stop this project.

A congratulations to everyone who has helped in this campaign. We have certainly come a long way! - Agua Vale Mas Que Oro, info [-at-] paredonesamarillosno.com, www.paredonesamarillosno.com, 612 145-0050

Comments, Questions and Answers


Vehicle Wanted - I would like to borrow a vehicle for my 4 week stay in Todos Santos starting February 25. I only need it to get into Town from Las Brisas, and maybe one time to Pescadero, no long distance. It need not be pretty, just run O.K. A quad would be fine too. I am offering $300 or a donation of same to Palapa Society. It would be nice to spend the money in the community. I have great references you can contact locally. Any help/suggestions will be much appreciated. Thank you. - Nicola Newton, n_newton [-at-] telus.net, 250 923-2384


Automotive Used Oil - Would like to know how to dispose of used automotive oil? Also, is there currently any recycling of glass, aluminum, plastic or tin? I live in Las Tunas but LaPaz or Cabo locations would be OK. - Denise Steffenhagen, cmyviews [-at-] yahoo.com, Todos Santos


Body Shop For Rust Repair? - Looking for a body shop in la paz to get the many rust spots fixed and painted on my ford truck. anybody have a good recommendation? - Dave Wolf, lobogrande [-at-] gmail.com, 612-143-9101, Todos Santos


Gas Pumps - I became suspcious of the gas pumps at Pescadero a couple of years back when I needed to fill a gas can, and considerably more than the stated capacity was put in, so I decided to conduct my own partially scientific study. I run my truck on both gasoline and propane fuels. My owner's manual says my gasoline tank has a 132 litre capacity. I ran it dry, then switched to propane, then filled up at the Pescadero Pemex, the Cabo Pemex near Costco, and the Pemex at the north end of TS. I allowed for 2-litres extra for the filler pipe. Imagine my surprise when the Pescadero Pemex managed to cram 145 litres of gasoline into my 134 litre tank and filler hose! I learned that the downtown TS Pemex is run by the same franchisee, so I avoid that one too. I have "tested" 3 pumps at the Costco Pemex, and they have all been dead accurate. The Pemex at the north end ot TS is also accurate, although I have only tested one pump. I decided to give the franchisee the benefit of the doubt and will believe the remaining pumps have not been tampered with. Another scam. What makes it worse is that the locals are being cheated as well. The author of this article requested anonymity


Need Letter Courier To The U.S. - Anyone headed to the States who could mail two envelopes for me there? I can drive them to you or leave them for you at the book store. Thanks - Janet Howey, janethowey [-at-] yahoo.com
