News, Events and Announcements


First Annual Todos Santos Artist Studio & Gallery Tour - Sunday, March 14th is the first annual Artist Studio and Gallery Tour organized by Artists of Todos Santos. You will be able to visit the Studios of 24 Todos Santos artists, our local Museo Barrio and 11 Galleries. The artists have working studios ranging from a tarp stretched over some poles or a shady spot under a tree all the way up to elaborate single-use designated buildings. Some of these are combined with a gallery and some are separate. This unique tour will provide the participant with an intimate look into the working lives of our local artists. At each studio the artist will be in residence and working to demonstrate his or her techniques.

It is easy to visit the studios/galleries on foot on the town side but you will need a car to visit the studios in el otro lado. Parking is very limited at some of the locations. Carpooling is highly recommended. Please leave your pets at home as they will not be allowed on the tour. Children are welcome (under 12 are free) and are the responsibility of the adult accompanying them. Art pieces are fragile and can still be wet. Some studios may contain dangerous equipment such as kilns and blowtorches. Beneficiaries of the tour are the children's art programs at both the Palapa Society and Escuela Pacifica. Tickets, maps and a description of each studio/gallery are available for a minimum donation of 100 pesos at Cafelix on Saturday, March 13th from noon to 3:00 P.M. and on Sunday, March 14th from 9:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.

Comments, Questions and Answers


Historic House Tour Thank You - Thanks to the hard work and support of all our volunteers and attendees, the Palapa Society's Historic House Tour raised $78,129 pesos for the 2010 educational and medical programs for the children of Todos Santos and the Bomberos. As a totally volunteer organization, we depend on and appreciate the continued support of this community and always welcome volunteers who are interesting in helping in our many programs for children. Since we are a non-profit organization which is legally registered with the Mexican government (tax ID #PST-030731-QY2), 100% of all funds raised go to designated programs. We invite all potential volunteers and/or people interested in learning more about us to drop by our library/office/school located on Obregon St. between Pilar and Legaspi or to contact any member of the Board of Directors. On behalf of the children of Todos Santos, we thank you for making this year's Tour a great success! - Sharon Morris, 612-1450299


Sign The Westjet To Lapaz Petition - I've just created an online petition to get Westjet to add La Paz to their Direct Flight Schedule. Although Canadians travelling to and from Baja will have a direct interest in the petition, anyone can sign and I encourage you to do so at http://www.petitiononline.com/WJ2LAP/petition.html. Please pass this link onto friends and family you feel may benefit from this outcome as well. Thank you. - Sheryl Hamilton, hamiltos12 [-at-] yahoo.com


Thank You! - Escuela Pacifica (EP) would like to thank Janelle Palma for her wonderful play writing and acting workshop, which culminated in our school's packed house performance of their own creation 'Far and Away'. The children send you their thanks and a standing ovation -all for you! - Escuela Pacifica, info [-at-] escuelapacifica.com, www.escuelapacifica.org, (612) 143-7585, Todos Santos


Re-registering Vehicle - I wondered if anyone knows how to re-register a California vehicle with expired plates purchased thru onapafa in La Paz. Can this be done electronically with N. Dakota, how can a Canadian drive a U.S. registered car over U.S. border, any options please - Gillian Herbert, gillyndolly [-at-] hotmail.com, 615-107-8613, Mulege


Tecate To Ensenada - There are two options from Tecate. Hwy 3 still under repairs so take Hwy 2. Cross border and go to last traffic light indicating Hwy 2, go left. It is a big wide concrete Hwy straight to Ensenda. Going back to Tecate is more complicated. Take Tijuana freeway N.out of Ensenada, exit at Cantamar or Puerto Nuevo, go north on old road some kms, right after military stop take left turn underpass which indicates Boulevard 2000, this may also say POPOTLA, to Tecate, ignore that most signs say Mexicali. - Gillian Herbert, gillyndolly [-at-] hotmail.com , 615-107-8613, Mulege

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


Seeking Early Retirement - My Working Days Are Over - My name is Azul and I am a purebred Australian Cattle Dog and, due to an injury, or perhaps distemper in my early days, I am no longer able to work on the ranch. My owners are too poor to feed a dog that cannot contribute, so I was put out to fend for myself. My rescuers found me starved and sick. Today I am healthy with a few special needs that do not affect my ability to be a good companion. I am clean and quiet. I bark when appropriate. I need help getting into the car but happily jump out for my daily morning walks. The weakness in my back legs keeps me off the furniture! My foster mom thinks I am pretty darn smart as I have learned to sit and stay and I am ready and eager to learn more. My breed makes me loyal to my family and I get along with the other family dogs. I have had a thorough neurological evaluation by a US vet. I am aprox. 2-4 yrs old and my weakness is not expected to get worse. I am healthy and ready for my forever home. - Marie-Rose Hagen, mhagen [-at-] shaw.ca

Meet Girdie Girl! - This wonderful girl stumbled upon our abode in great despair and poor health. Terri has lovingly nursed her back to health including a full round of all her shots. She is extremely playful and happy and has proven to be a GREAT watch dog and what a wonderful pup she has turned out to be. Girdie is 5 months old and will be spayed in 2 weeks, ready to go to her new loving home. Please entertain adding this perky girl to your family or pass along to someone that needs a new best friend. you can reach us at 612-132-4731 or 612-133-5531 (from the US 707-320-2661) - Terri Mcintosh, terri [-at-] themcintoshs.com, Todos Santos


Pups For Adoption - Seven rescue pups now available for adoption. About 6 weeks old, weaned, wormed, healthy, clean, active and friendly. Colors vary from white to black-and-tan, as well as beige and brown. One male and 6 females. Mother is a slim, medium-height brown and white "Baja hound" with a pleasant dispositon. Pups are located near Pescadero, at Los Cerritos beach. Call or email for photos, directions or information. - Peter Holmes, pm_holmes [-at-] yahoo.com, 613 107 7497


Still Missing - Lost Dog - Please help us find our dog! There was an accident on Sunday, January 3rd around 2 pm at KM 224 1/2 on highway 1, 55 km north of the Bahia Los Angeles turn off at Punta Prieta, in the Laguna Chapala area. The middle of nowhere. Our dog was inside the van that rolled and when he got out he ran off into the desert and we were unable to find him after searching hours and days. His name is "Pickle". He is a neutered, tan lab/great dane mix. He is very Friendly, but I'm sure very scared. He was wearing a collar with a name tag that had our numbers on it; both U.S. and Mexico. He was last seen by a witness, running west into the desert at km 224 1/2.

The reward has been increased to $1000 usd. I am willing to do what it takes to get my sweet boy back. If anyone has seen him or knows of anything, please let me know.

What's In Your Water? - Whatever it is you can remove it. Reverse osmosis, also known as "Ultra filtration," or "RO," is the most advanced water filtration method available, and is the preferred treatment technology used by bottled-water companies and desalinization plants. Of all technologies used to purify drinking water, RO provides the greatest range of contaminant removal. The pores in a reverse osmosis membrane are only approximately 0.0001 of a micron in size (bacteria are 0.2 to 1 micron, and viruses are 0.02 to 0.4 microns). Our multi-stage, carbon and reverse-osmosis filter systems with built in Ultraviolet sterilizer provide ultra pure water protection for your family. These systems install under your sink and work as a regular drinking water system. Just open the dedicated tap for fresh, pure water. - $495 dlls. Installed!

  • Removes Arsenic, Cadmium, Cyanide, Iron, Lead, Mercury, Nickel, and Other Toxic Metals.
  • Removes Bacteria, Mold Spores, Parasites, Giardia and Cryptosporidium
  • Removes Pesticides, Fertilizers and Organic Chemicals.
  • Produces Up To 100 gallons per day of fresh, pure drinking and cooking water.
  • No more heavy bottles and jugs of water to lug home or return to the store.
Know the facts before you buy, and don't be misled by unproven claims for so called "ionized" or "Alkalinized" water, or other magical solutions.
