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 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 - 11:45It is very important that as many people as possible attend.
