Another Todos Santos Fire - On Monday afternoon the obviously abandoned house behind us was set on fire. Three teenage boys were seen running away. The parched yard and rat-trap trailer went up in flames so quickly it was terrifying. The quick, professional response by the bomberos was very impressive. I was freaked and a bombero came over to reassure me that all was okay. I had to ask how old he was (everyone looks young to me these days), and he answered, "13." I almost cried thinking that his life and the lives of all the bomberos are in danger every time they are called out. This is a warning that there is a continuing arson problem here that seems impossible to correct. I also send renewed sympathies to all who have been affected by these jerks. Donations to the bomberos are a good investment. - Susan Doyle, timsudoyle [- a t -] hotmail.com

Desalination Plant Environmental Hearings - Next Thursday and Friday there will be public hearing for the proposed Desalination plant that the Concordia mining company plans to install in Las Playitas to pump water up to the proposed open pit gold mining project in the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere Reserve. The hearing on Thursday will relate specifically to the Desalination plant and the hearing on Friday will relate to the permits the mining company is requesting for the pipeline for piping the water up to the mine site. The hearings will be held at the Cultural Center from 9:30 until approximately 17:30 pm. They will be conducted in Spanish and there will not be a translator. Each hearing will be in four main parts:

1) The mining company will make a 90-minute presentation 10:15 - 11:45
2) Third party presentations (must be scheduled with SEMARNAT) 12:00 - 14:30
3) The Consulting Counsels recommendations for Sustainability 15:30 - 15:45
4) The public will have the opportunity to question the mining company about the Desalination plant (Thursday) or the Pipeline (Friday) 15:45 to 17:20
It is very important that as many people as possible attend. No signs or banners are allowed in the room but may be posted outside of the Cultural Center. If you would like to review the Environmental Impact study for the Desalination plant you will find it on line at (Spanish): sinat.semarnat.gob.mx/dgiraDocs/documentos/bcs/estudios/2011/03BS2011HD009.pdf
The link for the pipeline study is at (Spanish): sinat.semarnat.gob.mx/dgiraDocs/documentos/bcs/estudios/2011/03BS2011HD008.pdf

RE: Help Needed For The Hogar - Corrected Bank Account Information - The Hogar del Niño is located north of Todos Santos just off the highway before the Pemex on a mini ranch. This home (some refer to as an orphanage) is caring for boys and girls placed by DIF who need protective care. The home is locally run and NOT funded by the government. Joel and Alicia Hernandez rely solely on donations from the community to feed and house the twenty two children in their care, along with a staff of volunteers.

Currently the hogar needs money for food and shoes for the kids. Please consider giving to this home not only now but on a regular basis. Donations can be made at the Banorte Bank acct. # 0666456418 (pesos) and their dollar account is 0662765028. The clave # for wire transfers is: Interbancaria 072047006664564184 (M.N).

Adorable '83 Toyota Sunrader Motorhome - 18' long, 4 cylinders: Possibly the best parkability and fuel economy of any fully self-contained motorhome. It has just 122 K miles on it. This is reasonably low mileage on a rig of this vintage, enough so you know it hasn't been sitting somewhere drying out all the rubber seals and gaskets for 20 years. It still a lot of life left in it.

This fully self-contained motorhome includes stove and oven, kitchen sink, marine toilet and shower, hot water heater, furnace, fridge. It features gas and electric, A/C in both the cab and the coach canopy, worn but very comfy front bucket seats. Rear dinette converts to a bed and sleeping "loft" over the cab (sleeps up to 4). It has the upgraded 6 lug dual rear axle.

Work I have done on it: 6 new tires 3000 miles ago, regular maintenance (oil changes, tune up), new brakes, new cruise control installed (but not yet tweaked to work), new, easy-to-clean wood floor, front cab paint job. What it needs: The upper "loft" window needs to be replaced. This is an older rig and some fine tuning needs to be done, i.e. marker lights need bulbs and covers replaced. The motor is great and starts right up even after sitting for 3 weeks.

In tip-top, restored condition these go for up to $15K. In really junky condition, with lots of major repairs needed, they go for $2 - $3K. I have about $7500 into it, and am asking $6500, maybe even less if the buyer is willing to replace the window.

May 10 and 11 - Arizona/California via Baja Ferry - Traveling via the Baja Ferries from La Paz mid May 10 and 11 and looking for someone to caravan with through Nogales and points north California, Arizona. I speak fluent Spanish and would be happy to help translate if needed. Since the ferry arrives to Topolobampo late at night, there is the Hotel Marina and Restaurant for an over night and leave the next day for the border. About 120 miles south of the Nogales border crossing there is a junction that takes you to Mexico 3 and crosses the border at Mexacali and Tecate for people traveling to California and points northwest.

I travel with 2 nice dogs and stay at pet friendly motels/hotels. I do believe its pretty safe crossing any of the borders, it just always seems better safety in numbers. Please feel to e-mail or call me, treaturfeet [- a t -] yahoo.com, 624-141-0332 and let me know if this works with your plans to caravan back to Arizona or California via the Baja Ferries. - Sylvia, treaturfeet [- a t -] yahoo.com, 624-141-0332, Los Barriles
