A Few Changes... - We're revising the format of the Baja Western Onion slightly to make it more readable and shorter (it was getting up to 15 printed pages each issue). One major change is that we've moved the list of Community Events and Meetings, Workshops and Community Services up to the Baja Western Onion Web Site.
News and Events, Questions and Answers
Petition To Protect the Baja Coastline - There is an online petition where you can sign up to express your opinion about protecting the coastline of Baja California. You can read the comments of others, and sign the online petition here: www.thepetitionsite.com/1/Preserve-Bajas-Coastline. The petition drive is targeted at Municipal, State, and Federal officials of the Mexican government, and is sponsored by the Las Tunas Ecological Organization, www.LTECO.org. -

Saint Luke's Clinic - During a recent medical emergency I had occasion to use the services provided by our new clinic on Militar. The emergency was handled very professionally and avoided a trip to a hospital in La Paz or Cabo. The cost was extremely reasonable and a detailed bill is prepared suitable for submission to U.S. insurance companies. I think they are a wonderful new resource in our community. - mcnerneyatlast [- a t -] hotmail.com, Todos Santos
