News and Events, Questions and Answers

Information Meeting On Gold Mine - Information presented by two important scientists opposed to the planned mines in the Sierra de la Laguna. On Saturday, June 5, the public was invited to attend (another) meeting for a presentation given by two very knowledgeable scientific representatives giving facts regarding the gold mine planned in the Sierra de la Laguna. The content of the presentation was excellent. Using photographs, charts and analysis gave us a lot of basic information that was understandable and emphasized the urgency of acting quickly to stop the planned mines.

Perhaps it was the timing of the meeting or that there had been a prior meeting that so few attended but there were some 15 persons present, Mexicans and ex-pats. It was sad that there were so few of us representing only a fraction of all the business and private individuals who would be seriously affected if the mines happen.

In an emotional summary one man expressed his frustration to the group against the future gold mines. “It is really deplorable that in a fight of this magnitude that there are people who seek personal recognition instead of just contributing their capabilities to the benefit of the community. If I were a representative of the gold mine I would be very content to see that the opponents are fighting amongst themselves instead of pulling the same string against a serious and disastrous ‘Money Machine’.”

Conclusion: We have not given up hope that all the opponents to the gold mine will work together and we ask all persons and parties involved to come to their senses and work together for a good and healthy life with a future in Todos Santos.- Jurg Wiesendanger, lapoza [-a t-], 612-145-0400

This Is Just An Idea - It could be a very difficult summer for some local businesses, so just for these summer months, I will produce (on a $ sliding-scale) a web-page for the little guy or an event or a charity. (Spanish pages must be pre-proofed because my language skills are not so was all pre-edited and it turned out OK.) To get a feel for the viability of this idea, please send me an e-mail explaining who you are, what you do, what you would like on your webpage. I will reply with the lowest possible quote/monthly-rent amount to accommodate you and your needs. I believe in advertising, especially at the grass roots level; where having a link to an immediate visual image, can produce interest toward you & what you do. We always benefit from co-operative sharing. Your internet address page would be (with a link to your personal email etc.).

This is just an idea. For now I would like to formulate a collective of small entrepreneurs in our area. A sliding-scale may not seem fair, but what if 80 pesos per month could make someone famous, or popular or happy? This concept will also allow a person to sponsor someone that needs a spotlight etc. Well, thank you for helping me explore this idea! It all depends on the response I receive. - Jan Be [-a t-],

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-], 612-102-7983, 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.

For more information, visit; or call 612-155-8948(Spanish), or 612-140-2575 (English). You can also write us at bdlp [-a t-] - Cindy Crane, bdlp [-a t-] , www [-a t-], 612-140-2575 , La Paz

These Kitties are the Cutest Ever - I've seen other photos in recent issues of BWO and those kitties are cute but these four, one black, one grey striped, two calico are even more precious. They are now ready in Todos Santos for permanent homes. We are taking applications (that's a joke!) Janel 145-0073 - Janel Beeman, janelb3 [-a t-], 145-0073, Todos Santos

East Cape A.L.M.A. Animal Rescue Needs Help!! - If any of you "stateside" locals has family or friends thinking of adopting a pet, why not a Baja dog or pup? We have three or four adult dogs: well-behaved, housebroken, already trained companions needing homes. We also have some of the cutest, most adorable pups you've ever seen. We can transport them to some cities in the U.S. for free! Even better, they will arrive with their shots and health certificates and, in the case of the adult dogs, spayed or neutered.

Visit our website to see some pics, We also have a Facebook page. If you send out this notice to ten of your friends and ask them to send it to ten of theirs, our message will get out to thousands of people. Help us find these beautiful pets a wonderful home. Call Sheila or Janel, 624-137-7683 or 624-175-9102, or email janelinmex [-a t-] or bajasheila [-a t-] - Janel Faraci, janelinmex [-a t-], 624-137-7683, Los Barriles
