Comments, Questions and Answers


Beyond Pitiful - there is a pitiful looking Husky/Shepperd mix dog on the road down to cerritos beach. It has a section of a rope tied around its neck and has not eaten for WEEKS by the looks of it and has mangy spots all over. It seems to have been tied up and abandoned at a lot that has a palapa being built on it on the right hand side of the road as you drive towards the beach. Someone needs to either help the poor animal or put it out of its misery...my hands are full, I have FIVE rescued dogs, my spirit got broken in Mexico, maybe you can find yours ... - Anonymous, Pescadero


Expired Plates? - In reading Deborah's posting some questions occured to me. 1. If a Mexican was caught in the US with expired plates what would happen? Would they make their flight? In Arizona?
2. I thought people used the South Dakota registration so they could renew from Mexico?
I have been stopped at various times in Todos Santos and elsewhere and they check my license plate stickers and wave me on. I have also seen them stopping Mexicans and checking their license plate validations.
- Les Schubert, lschubert [-at-] platinum.ca


Trip North; Bad Luck And Good Luck - On Sunday April 11 we left TS about noon and headed home. Here comes the bad luck. About 3:30 between Constitution and Loreto a Aquila bus came around a sharp corner about a metre into my lane and traveling too fast. In the next 2 seconds the drivers side doors and windows and the box side were significantly "restyled" on my F250 Superduty. From here on we had good luck. Karin and I were not injured and the truck still ran and drove OK (thank you Ford for building a solid truck). We turned around to check and see if the bus was OK and if he had stopped. We saw him disappearing around the far corner (more good luck). We stopped and cleaned all the broken glass out of the truck and a Green Angel stopped by to help. I explained what had happened and he said he had met a bus with significant body damage a few minutes before driving at a more sedate pace than usual. We discussed talking to the police. It was agreed that it would do no good and would likely cost me money. We drove 2700 miles home to Calgary. Total estimate for damage in Calgary was $14,000.00. - Les Schubert, lschubert [-at-] platinum.ca


Oil Coated U S East Coast... - With the US Gulf Coast already covered with raw oil, and with all current predictions showing that this huge river of oil will be taken up and around the Florida pan handle - I am predicting that the Pacific Coast will experience a record Winter season as Snow Birds search for new "clean" destinations... like Todos Santos! - Michael Morel, MichaelMorel1973 [-at-] hotmail.com, 612.14.77.300, Todos Santos


Community Help Requested - An active and generous member of our Todos Santos community needs financial help for a surgery. Alicia Defoe, of Cafe d'Alicia, needs surgery on her knee - a torn meniscus and a cartilage tear behind the patella creating a cyst. It will cost 38,000 pesos. Alicia has quietly helped many individuals and charitable efforts - now it's our chance to show her we care.

Donations (cash or checks, US ok) can be left at: La Canada del Diablo or El Tecolate bookstore or mailed to Don Mitchell, AP 46, Todos Santos, BCS, 23305, Mexico or Jason Mitchell, MD, 4304 Rio Grande Blvd., Albuquerque, NM 87107. For more information please contact Pamela Vantress, pavantress [-at-] yahoo.com or 145-0254. - Pamela Vantress, pavantress [-at-] yahoo.com, 145-0254, Todos Santos


Grandma Rescued From La Paz Jail - I thank everyone who helped me last Friday and Saturday when I had the unexpected and frightening ordeal of spending the night in the La Paz jail. So many friends in Todos Santos stepped forward, watched my house, fed my animals, found me a La Paz attorney, talked to residents concerned about our "protection" in Todos Santos, worried about me during the night, drove me back home to Todos Santos, and called to check in the next day. I also want to express that both male and female guards at the Colossio Jail were considerate and professional, and treated me with the utmost respect. The place was packed and unfortunately there were no beds available so I spent the night on the concrete floor.

The jail houses,(long-term,) 70 women, including young women, grandmothers like myself and babies. Some, like me, are innocent but have no money for their defense. The women's areas are clean and curtains hang in all the windows. The babies are allowed to remain with their mothers until they are two years old, then they must go to relatives on the outside. The women have basic necessities, but they also have many needs. It was a traumatic experience for me but on another level one of the most profound.

If you are wondering how something like this could happen in Pueblo Magico, feel free to contact me. - Judy Tegland, purplepapagayo [-at-] yahoo.com, Todos Santos


Mailbox Rental Share - We are looking for a third person to share our mailbox. The cost is about 500 pesos – three-way. If you are interested in sharing our mailbox at the Cabo Mailboxes, Etc., please e-mail elizabeth[at]redlotus.org. -


Icf's New Research Report Is Out! - You can access the International Community Foundation's newest research report, entitled "Housing and Real Estate Trends in Mexico's Coastal Communities" at our website: www.icfdn.org. We look forward to your comments and questions! - Anne McEnany and Richard Kiy - Anne Mcenany, anne [-at-] icfdn.org, www.icfdn.org, 6192069342
