A Special Sunday Blessing - Of the St. Joseph Statue Sunday, June 12, during the noon Mass at the Iglesia de Nuestra Senora del Pilar, Catholic Church in Todos Santos. The "St. Joseph Patron of the Family Statue" will be consecrated and artist Benito Ortega will be there to explain his unique design. Last year the ground breaking of the Saint Joseph Patron of the Family Grotto was held at the site prepared next to the Church. The second of three phases will include the consecration (or blessing) of the St. Joseph, Patron of the Family, Statue.

The dedication will be held by Padre Sergio Renteria. A brief recognition of the community contributors will be celebrated. In April a replica of the statue was presented from the People of Todos Santos, to the Vatican, through the Pope's Ambassador in Mexico City. The Vatican has blessed the mission and the construction of the statue and grotto.

The inspiration for this statue is the loving nature of the Mexican family. The statue honors the familial strength modeled by St. Joseph. Through faith and love, Joseph assumed his responsibility and devoted his life to the love and welfare of Jesus and Mary. Our statue is a unique treatment, both in honor of Joseph and as the symbol for the Holy Family. Please join your Mexican neighbors at this event. - Tony Gould, tony [-a t-]gouldsite.com, 612-142-4370, Todos Santos

Editor's Note - You can see a short videologue about the statue and Artist, Benito Ortega, posted by Tony and Jan on YouTube here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcWmVbtbksU - The Baja Western Onion

Congrats to Local Students - Escuela Pacífica would like to congratulate the local Todos Santos 6th-graders who made it through the first round of the Olimpiada de Conocimento (a yearly national academic competition in the public schools). EP's own Evelyn Urias-Velázquez was among them, and has gone on to compete in La Paz against 88 others, from a field of 11,000 6th-graders in BCS. Our best wishes Evelyn!

We would also like to congratulate Nico Herroz Lipford, in 4th grade at Escuela Pacífica, for winning first place in the local round of the national public school art competition, "El Niño y el Mar". Onwards and upwards with all Todos Santos students! - Escuela Pacífica, Info [-a t-]escuelapacifica.org, www.escuelapacifica.org/Escuela_Pacifica/Welcome.html, 612-132-8913, Todos Santos

Bee, Jelly Fish, Man o' War, Stings Ant Bites Another Way To Treat - Courtesy La Paz Gringos - Benadryl Spray, I purchased it for bee sting allergic reactions in hopes I would not have to take the oral pills which knock me out. and it works great... I can spray locally and i am just fine it stops me from going into serious stages.

Next I have allergic reactions to jellyfish and Man o' War. and my former treatment was to take the oral and get knocked out for 8 hours. So I decided to try this and to my amazement in 5 minutes the pain and the marks are basically gone.

I have used this on kids after jellyfish hit them and they are crying so severely and within 2-4 minutes they are not in any pain and in 5 minutes they head back to the water. I have given some to a local emergency doctor and she has had similar results. this product needs to be a staple for life guards and ambulances and people who live at beaches... I keep mine outside and make sure people know where it is...

I gave some to the LaVentana local health clinic if you need help. Remember to bring some down for your medicine assortment... it is amazing on how effective it is. this is a spray not cream, the gel one is also very good. You can find this listed on my webpage - D. Devolpi, moderator [-a t-]bajawesternonion.com, www.la-ventana.info

I Am So Lonesome - My brother and sister were adopted and I'm all alone here at my foster home. The older cats here hiss at me, but I do get along well with the dogs. I just have no one to play with. I am indoor/outdoor trained, understand English and gringo Spanish. Maybe you could love me? - Pam Cobb, senoracobb [-a t-]yahoo.com, 612-102-7983, Todos Santos

3 Adorable Puppies Rescued - I rescued three starving, flea and tick infested female puppies from death by neglect. Two pups look like black lab mix, one is smaller and tan color. They are now strong, healthy and lively puppies ready to be relocated to good homes. I cannot keep three dogs so please open your heart and home to a sweet little pup. For more information, please write dianejoy39 [-a t-]yahoo.com, Todos Santos

Baja Dogs: Please Help Save Eli! - We would like to introduce ELI: She was found standing alone on the road near CIB. Her entire body was covered with Mange. She had so many open sores on her body she hardly had any hair left. Her back, elbows, feet, legs, rear end and tail were totally red and full of sores. Her entire body itched constantly. She had no energy, and had just given up on life.

After a few sessions of mange treatment we could see the difference in her: the itch had subdued, the sores are healing, and her hair has grown back. This girl is a trooper. She is full of love, easy-going and gentle. She has endured so much already, but unfortunately we have recently found out she has heartworm. This disease is from a mosquito bite and will kill her without your help!

Heartworm is treatable, but far too expensive for our refuge to undertake on its own. The treatment will cost $3300 pesos and if we cannot raise the money, she will have to be put to sleep. If you can find it in your heart to make any kind of a donation to help this beautiful young girl, your donation will literally save her life. If you care to help Eli, please mark your donations "ELI" so they go directly to her care. If you would like to see a photo of Eli I would be happy to forward it if you email me. Baja Dogs is a registered Mexican non-profit organization that relies completely on Private donations, as we receive no government funding.
