Attack In Las Brisas Near Sol Mercado - Last Thursday, July, 8 at 5:00pm, I was attacked in my yard while watering my garden. The man entered my yard and grabbed me. He choked me and tried to force me into my house. Fortunately I was able to fight back and began screaming. He left the yard and I followed him into the street as I continued to scream and neighbors came to assist me. The man got away but his hat was left behind. It is a white baseball cap with red letters on the front NY. If you have seen a man with this hat please report it to the Judicales tel. 14 50198 - Maureen Bennett, Todos Santos

Please Feed Me! - Hello, I am a white horse my friends call Ribs, named that because that's what you see when you look at me (other than flies eating my eyes). I was being fed by a visitor for the month she was here but I need your help now because she is back in the States now. I can't tell you who owns me cause I am afraid....I am tied up south of the stawberry or produce stand just before Pescadero, on the produce stand side. I eat anything, scaps from your kitchen is great...oh I am very thirsty too, could you bring me water? I am pretty shy at first but came to know my American friend and let her pet me and wash my eyes that hurt because the flies bite at me all day. If you can help me I would be very grateful, I wish someone would find my owner and offer to save....I mean buy me. Well thanks.... - Ribs The Horse.
