News and Events, Questions and Answers

Concordia Withdraws Desalination Project - In a surprise announcement made Tuesday, the Secretary of the Environment SEMARNAT announced that the Concordia Mining company has withdrawn its application for the Desalination plant in Las Playitas. The resulting aqueduct would have sent 1,000,000 gallons of water a day to the proposed Concordia/Paredones Amarillos open pit gold mining project in the Sierra de la Laguna Biosphere Reserve. The public hearings scheduled for Thursday and Friday have been canceled as a result of the announcement. The mining company will most likely regroup and try again. The withdrawl has been seen as an important victory for those opposing the venture. Local volunteers stepped forward to help pay for the scientific studies and legal consultants, make banners and organize the opposition. - Elena Moreno, e [- a t -] elenamoreno.com, www.aguavalemasqueoro.com, 612-145-0050

Todos Santos Health Seminar - American Insurance in Mexico in conjunction with St. Luke's Clinic of Todos Santos and Sharp HealthCare Hospitals of San Diego CA, continue the series of Health Related Seminars. Questions continually asked include: "What do I do if a health crisis occurs? How is critical care handled in Todos Santos? Who do I trust with my routine health care? Where is the best medical facility for my income level and my health insurance? As part of our continuing educational series, our guest speaker this month will be Toni Burgess R.N. CDE, a diabetic educator at Sharp HealthCare. She will be speaking on "Simple Ways to Live a Healthy Lifestyle." Additionally, Mario Trejo and Adrian Gonzalez of St. Luke's will speak on emergency procedures along with the services and expertise of St. Luke's. To learn more about health care and what steps to take if an emergency occurs we welcome you to our next seminar. It is important that we support the effort of these doctors and nurses who are taking their time to educate us. So please mark your calender for Thursday, May 19, 2:30 p.m. at LA ARCA Conference Center. The seminar is free and refreshments will be served. A tour of the new clinic will follow the seminar. - Cyndi Williams, cyndicbre [- a t -] aol.com, www.americaninsuranceinmexico.com, cell 624-158-8650, Todos Santos

Garbage Clean Up - "Thank you" to all the volunteers who helped clean up Todos Santos. I apologize that I have been unable to schedule clean-up days the last month. The next similar event will be held at end of July. - Emanuelaemagard [- a t -] mac.com, 1780108

Announcing the Creation of a Blood Donor Data Base - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - From the tragic case of Jeff Niemi, we’ve learned some things about our wonderful, supportive community: there are many people willing to donate blood, but there is a 24 – 48 hour lapse between accident and receipt of blood. We want to create a list of eligible, willing donors. Including their blood type, contact info, and months of the year they’re in residence. If Char has this data in her computer, volunteers can immediately call those with the needed blood type. We will update the list every few months. Please send your names and the above info to: kgmundt [- a t -] yahoo.com. If you do not know your blood type, you can have it tested at AmeriMed here in LB on Saturdays for 200 pesos. Or have it done in the US at your next doctor appointment. It’s important to know when you need it yourself! For review, here are the Mexican eligibility requirements: 1. General good health, and 2. Between ages 10 – 65. Ineligibility factors: 1. Kidney or liver disease, 2. HIV, 3. Viral hepatitis, 4. Cancer or blood disorder, 5. Heart disease, 6. Certain medications. This data base hopefully will include donors from Todos Santos, La Paz, and the entire Cape region. In addition to donors, we will need volunteers, willing to learn the nitty-gritty details, to man the phones when an accident occurs. Send me your names, too! - kgmundt [- a t -] yahoo.com

Thief Caught! - A local slimebag who broke into a house in Las Tunas a few weeks ago was arrested and is now in jail in La Paz. I was relly impressed with how the Policia of the Ministerio Publico handles the situation. When we called the breakin into them, two investigators responded quickly. Since they have no camera or fingerprint equipment, I took photos of the damage, footprints lift on a box, and a bloody handprint on the wall and downloaded them on their computer. With all this evidence they arrested [Name Deleted], and sure enough he had the stolen cameras in his posession. They were easily identified because the owners had photographs of them. This is a very important thing for all of us to do - take photos of all your valuables and serial numbers when they have one.. It makes it so much easier to get your things back when they are stolen. Also, if you do get broken into, please, file a Denuncia. It's not that hard and unless you do, nothing can be done. Also, also, the Ministerio Publico had a drawer full of small confiscated items - didn't see any computers - but if you are missing something and have the box or a photo, it may be worth a try to get it back. - nancyserfas [- a t -] aol.com

Need To Have Two Boxes Picked Up In Chula Vista - Help! We have two boxes that need to be picked up in Chula Vista and brought to Baja South.

Hint! Emergency Water - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Fill your washing machine with water when our area gets a hurricane warning. If you do not end up using the water, just wash a load of clothes so no water is wasted. Also, put important papers into an unplugged dishwasher. It's waterproof! - moderator [- a t -] bajawesternonion.com

Dog Help Needed - Does anyone have a dog training collar (shock collar) or know where I can get one? I am having some serious challenges with my rescue dog and want to avoid having to put her down. Also, does anyone know of a dog trainer locally? Thank you. - Andrea Park, andrea [- a t -] bellasol.org, 612-118-6031, Todos Santos

Mosquito Netting and Prevention Tips - Courtesy Ventana View - Recently a person asked about netting for their bed. I do not know where to get them, but... We have basically not had one drop of rain in 9 months. The mosquito we have here is aedes aegypti it is the one that can carry dengue if there is an outbreak. It has some traits that should not allow it to be here, it needs moisture, its range is very short, 400 meters is a long range and the typical is 50-100 meters of the site of emergence. We can speculate generally they go back to this location in a desert with rain to lay the eggs. Lifespan as short as one week but average of 2 week. So you know the breeding location is nearby. In a desert where we have no rain for 9 months this rules out many locations that tropical areas have problems with. In general, refrigerator or air conditioner pans should be inspected. I am sure no one has run their ac for many moons. If someone has a water storage tank that is open this is a prime location, a neighbor who has a pool that is not maintained, any kind of birdbath, animal bowls, plant pots that are overflowed with water, construction sites where they fill barrels of water (these should be emptied about every 5 days) and the one that is the main culprit down here is septic and house vents. Take a walk around your neighborhood and find the construction barrels, septic vents, water tanks, house vents that are not screened off. Take a ladder and some metal screen and electrical wire with and close them off. If construction you will need to do this every 5 days till they are done. While doing this pay attention to where there are buckets, boats, kayaks, garbage cans, wheelbarrows, pots that do not drain, old tires and such so if we do get rain you can go empty those out. None of my neighbors locals or from the north have said no when I do this. If you do not have the ability or ladder to do this I can lend you my ladder or ask a local (Jose Luis) to do the inspection/work for you for a reasonable price. My guestimate is I can get him to do it for about 300 pesos if a small area. You will notice the difference in 1 week. When people leave for the season, they should put plugs and covers on all sinks, drains including shower drains, anything that has a “trap”, and even put saran wrap over the toilet bowl and tank to seal it from evaporation. Turn all flower pots upside down or fill with sand, and have someone inspect after a rain. - dean [- a t -] la-ventana.com

Purple Pill Warning - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - A warning has been issued regarding "the purple pill," now popular among older surfers. It also bears the fictitious "rumafen" and lists ingredients glucosamine, willow bark, shark fin and others. A guy in Cabo, where it had become popular among the baby boomers surfers, reportedly had it analyzed and it apparently contains dexamethasone, a powerful steroid. If you take it for weeks your joint and back pain disappear. If you stop, the pains returns even worse. Side effects include weight gain, arm and leg muscle wasting, personality changes and others. - moderator [- a t -] bajawesternonion.com

Mark Your Calendars! - Judgment Day is coming May 21, 2011 - A fringe U.S. evangelical Christian group, Family Radio, has reportedly erected some 2,000 billboards around the world advising of the Second Coming and salvation for true believers. Everyone else, it warns, will suffer a powerful earthquake and five months of hell on earth. Harold Camping, Family Radio's president, came up with May 21, 2011, "from evidence found in the Bible," the website says. He determined that Christ's Second Coming would happen on that date, which he claims is the exact 7,000-year anniversary of Noah escaping destruction from the floods. Camping has been wrong before. He wrote a book predicting the world would end in 1994. Family Radio now says that "important subsequent biblical information" was not known at the time. -

Although not strictly a "Baja" issue, the Baja Western Onion will attempt to keep you informed, right up until (and hopefully past) the date of this important event. If you want your ads or articles to appear in the Baja Western Onion before the End of The World, we suggest you do so quickly. :)

House Sitting Maintenance Man - I am looking for a housing situation in Los Cerritos, Pescadero, or Todos Santos. Willing to provide services in exchange. I am a 28-year Navy Veteran and I just sailed my 39ft sailboat from Santa Cruz,CA, arriving in Cabo San Lucas May 5. My father owns a couple of lots on Gavilan Hill in cerritos/pescadero and is going to start building soon. I am looking for a place to stay for at least a couple months and possibly more (considering moving full time to the area) to help him get things moving. I have an RV that will be coming in a month or so. I could vacate on short notice and stay in the RV or the boat in Cabo. BTW, the boat is for sale if anyone is interested. I can offer repairs, painting, plumbing,landscaping, clearing, hauling, and electrical services. I am a certified wind turbine technician and build the big wind turbines, have installed small air-x and airmax turbines, am very knowledgeable in solar, battery banks, regulators, AC inverters, gas and diesel generators. I have run construction companies and was a mechanic on an aircraft carrier. I've done some international tour guiding and worked transportation logistics, am good with computers. I am willing to run errands, show your property to buyers, pick buyers up from airport and show them land and the area. Numerous references are available and I can take part in any interview process via skype, phone, or, if in Baja, person. - Matt Thomas mjthomas223 [- a t -] gmail.com, Pescadero
