Our Four-year Anniversary! - Four years ago today, on September 01, 2006, the Baja Western Onion began publishing on the same day that Hurricane John hit Baja. It was the hurricane that gave us the impetus to start a community newsletter. While passing along updates on the storm damage that occurred during the following week, we got a lot of positive Email from many readers wanting to know more about what was happening here. It reminded us that our community might benefit from a quick and easy way to communicate local happenings.
