News, Events and Announcements


The Big Oasis Fire - Our family would like to thank everyone who came to help save our homes. It was the worst oasis fire we have seen in 40 years. We were all very lucky, there were no major injuries and all the homes were saved. If the wind had not changed and then died down we would have lost many of the houses in La Cachora. It was such a strong community effort, the Todos Santos volunteer fire department was terrific and so many people came to help; all the surfers showed up, friends, neighbors and even strangers were there with buckets, shovels and hoses. Fortunately we had enough people and hoses to keep someone on all the roofs to knock back the fires before they got big enough to cause real damage. At one point it seemed like all was lost and then suddenly the wind changed to the west and finally died down. Blessings to our Volunteer Bomberos, they were amazing - great thanks to the Bomberos from La Paz and Los Cabos who also came to help.

What did we learn? Keep your palm trees trimmed; the trees with years of growth were the most dangerous. Install a sprinkler system on all palapa roofs. Make sure you have enough hoses to reach every part of your property. Make sure you have faucets through out your property. Even though the fire may not seem close to you, pay attention because the biggest danger in an Oasis fire is from wind borne embers that can quickly spawn new fires far from the main blaze. Again, great thanks to everyone for your help. Oscar and Elena Moreno, Oscar and Marimar Moreno, John and Adhy Moreno, Happy and Chuy Cota and Cindy and David Higgins.

Todos Santos Huerta Fire - On Wednesday, March 24th, while we were in the states digging out of the latest Colorado snowstorm, a fire was raging in the huerta across the road from our house on La Cachora in Todos Santos. Fortunately for us, the fire was eventually extinguished with our house and property still essentially intact. We have received several (long distance) accounts of what happened along with photographs and video clips of the fire. And now, having had a chance to absorb all of this information, we have one important observation to make. Our house probably would have burned to the ground if it weren’t for the heroic efforts of many people.

So, thanks to Oscar (whom we are proud to say is our son-in-law), Shannon, Veronica, Alex, Diego, Keenan, Justin, Leon, Max, Lou, Tom, and, of course, the Todos Santos bomberos for saving our house. And thanks to Marimar (whom we are very proud to say is our daughter), Nancy and Tom for keeping us advised of what was going on. Undoubtedly, this is an incomplete list of those who pitched in to protect our house from the fire, and we apologize for any inadvertent omissions. But what amazes us is that people in the community, some of whom don’t know us at all, would do so much and take such risks to keep our house from being destroyed. This confirms something we have known for a long time: Todos Santos is a special town inhabited by very special people. Again, our heartfelt thanks. - Dave And Cindy Higgins, davidhiggins [ -at- ] evcohs.com, Todos Santos


Top Student From Todos Santos Killed In Crossfire In Monterrey - The headline of the Los Cabos Daily News on March 23 was U.S., Mexican Officials to Meet Over Drug Violence. Below the headline is a photo of an offering set up by students at the Tecnolgico de Monterrey in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, with pictures honoring two young friends who died on campus in the crossfire between the Mexican army and drug traffikers. One of those two men was Javier Francisco Arredondo, who was born and raised in Todos Santos. Approximately 24 years old when he died, Javier was a at the head of his class as a student at the primaria and the secundaria here in Todos Santos, and continued to excel in his studies in Monterrey.

CNN in English http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/americas/03/23/mexico.dead.students/index.html

CNN en Español http://www.cnnmexico.com/nacional/2010/03/24/todos-santos-baja-california-rinde-homenaje-a-estudiante-del-tec
Javier's body was returned to Todos Santos for burial on Wednesday, March 24, and the funeral procession was the largest I have seen in my 14 years here. His parents, Francisco Javier Arredondo and Aide Verdugo Romero, live in the town center across the street from the bookstore. Javier had many friends and relatives in town, and it is likely that any Mexicans you know locally have felt this loss. - Janet Howey,

Comments, Questions and Answers


Dance Band - Looking for a great band for a wedding here in Todos in June. would love to get some opinions and options. 30 ish group so dancing for sure. - John Mcintosh, john [ -at- ] mcintoshco.com, 612-132-47-31


Eye Surgery And Health Care - We have used Dr. Lechuga in La Paz (there is a father and a son- both eye surgeons) and they seem fine. However La Paz is still a pretty small market and if it is serious surgery and you have the resources Guadalajara is a much better option. I have friends who have combined healthcare trips with vacations to Guadalajara where the specialists are well-trained and aren't chainsmokers like Dr. Lechuga (senior)! Many Americans now fly into Mexican cities for healthcare they cannot afford back stateside, unless they marry a Canadian! - Jim Elfers


I Need To Send a Letter South - Is anyone headed to Todos Santos this next week who can take a letter from the US to Janet at the BookStore in Todos Santos? I'll mail it to you overnight delivery and can arrange for pickup. Thanks so much. - Alan Thompson, alan [ -at- ] baja1.com, 612-132-47-31
