First Annual Todos Santos Artists’ Studio Tour A Success! - Artists of Todos Santos (ARTS) is pleased to announce that the First Annual Todos Santos Artists’ Studio Tour on March 14th was a success. Just under 150 tour participants, plus an additional estimated 15 children who were admitted free and several complimentary admissions for volunteers were recorded. After all expenses were covered, the children’s art programs of the Palapa Society and Escuela Pacifica will each receive a gift of 3000 pesos for art supplies. We appreciate the support of both the local community and many visitors from other cities in the Baja and especially the enthusiastic participation of the artists, galleries and restaurants who made this success possible.
Also, don’t forget this Thursday night, March 25th at 5:30, the last “Meet the Artist” session for this season at Visions at Cafelix featuring sculptor, Homero Martinez Chairez. - Michael Mcallister, artistasdetodossantos [ -at- ] gmail.com, artistsoftodossantos.com, 612-152-6166, Todos Santos


"Raise The Roof" La Paz Orphanage Auction May 15 - Plan now to come to a fantastic event for a great cause. The La Paz orphanage "Ciudad de Los Niños y Niñas" is holding a fundraising auction on May 15 beginning at 5:00 P.M.. There will be entertainment, food and drinks. A silent auction will begin the evening and an oral auction will start later, and maybe a surprise or two! The orphanage is located at the corner of Revolucion and 5 de Febrero next to the Sanctuario (the church with the big dome). The roof over our print shop is disintegrating and needs replacement. The print shop provides over half our annual income, so any damage to the presses from roof leaks would be catastrophic. To learn more about the orphanage and the auction go to our web site. If you have an item or service from your business, or a gently-used item from home to donate to the auction, please contact me by email or phone. Hope to see you all there.

Comments, Questions and Answers


The Sewage Is Again Flowing Into The Pond On The Dunes At The End Of Camino Del Pacifico! - Seems the pumps that were installed were undersized and have broken down. How can this have happened after such a short time? Why isn't a holding pond out at the sewage processing plant? Wasn't this engineered by an appropriately licensed engineer? Aren't inspections required? The pond is in what is now a residential neighborhood that continues to be developed. It is not a healthy situation. If you would be interested in signing a petition to be presented to state officials in La Paz, please contact me. We are working to resolve the situation. - Sylvia St.clair, Architect, sasinbaja [ -at- ] yahoo.com, www.bajaarchitect.com, 612-145-0563, Todos Santos


Baja Whale Watching Tour - My wife and I had to cancel our whale watching trip(San Ignacio Lagoon) due to a family emergency. I'm not sure if it's appropriate to mention it here, but since it was non-refundable, I'm trying to see if anyone would be interested in purchasing our trip for two. The dates are April 5-10 and everything (food, drinks, whale watching, transportation) is included. We paid $1325 each ($2650 for both), but we would take any reasonable offer. Here's a link to their site: http://www.bajaecotours.com/ Thanks-- Seth Gordon - Kathy Gordon, kmgordon1001 [ -at- ] gmail.com, www.bajaecotours.com/, 757-692-5920


Plastic Recycling Plant - I would like to get together with people who would like to participate in building a plastic recycling plant. This plant would take most post consumer plastic and turn it into such products as fence posts. plastic "lumber" usable for fencing, concrete forming, landscape timber, and a termite proof wood substitute. I have been studying these plants in "gringo-land" and now feel that I have enough information and a technical team assembled to effectively create such a plant. If there is sufficient interest then we will attempt to arrange a public meeting. - Les Schubert, lschubert [ -at- ] platinum.ca, 612 139 1209, Todos Santos


Cell Registry - cell registration its a must, by law, if you dont Then they will shut down your line by the 10 of april, If you bought your cell after april 10 2009 your already registread . to register you cell you need a CURP. thats our national registration number of identification. if you are a foreigner resident, you MUST have a CURP so we know you are here, if you don´t want any body knows your here, then, find somebody whith a CURP to register your cell for you.

Phone Registration Is Legitimate And Easy - I registered both my Movistar and Telcel phones in Cabo. A snap. Right at the reception desks someone took my phone number, made a copy (one) of my passport -- and it was finished. No paper work to fill out. I asked the reason for registration. The answer: increasing phone fraud in Mexico so there's a desire to identify phone owners for backtracking fraud. Otras razones? No se. - Leonard Zweig, Pescadero


Registering Cell Phones - I went to the telcel office on Cinco de Febrero in La Paz with one copy of my passport and my cell phone. I was allowed to go to the front of the line and there was no paperwork to fill out. The person at the counter entered some info from the copy of my passport into her computer, and I was done. Not a big deal, took about five minutes if that. It's not a rumor, you need to do this! - Lynne Cummings, lynnec [ -at- ] pobox.com, Todos Santos


Looking For Eye Doctor - Hey, does anyone out there know of a good eye doctor for eye surgery in La Paz or Cabo? On that note, any bad doctors to avoid? - Emily Smith, organicminded [ -at- ] yahoo.com, Pescadero
