News and Events, Questions and Answers

Todos Santos Recycling - The number one environmental concern for all Todos Santonians should be our garbage dump. We all contribute to it - and it is a nasty landfill full of plastic, car tires, batteries, etc that is burnt 3-4 days out of the month (right next to 'supposedly' organic fields). And not to mention the endless sea of plastic that lines all roads and trails in the area.

So I'm proposing that we as a community come together this summer and put in place a properly run Recycling program. I believe it should target two main categories: 1. restaurants 2. homes

Restaurants in the area could become partner members and post a sign showing they are resposible recyclers. Once a week a truck could go around collecting the material from all the businesses and return it to a central processing location.

At the beginning home owners could drop off their sorted materials to the central depot - and ultimately the goal would be to coordinate with the delagdo to have a recycling truck driving through the neighborhoods along side the garbage truck.

So to brainstorm this idea - I would like to call a meeting of interested people from within the community to discuss this idea further: Todos Santos Recycling - Brainstorm Meeting, Friday, June 24, 10 a.m. at the Gemini Deli garden patio. See you there! - Michael Morel, info [-a t-]TheGeminiDeli.com, 612-147-7300, Todos Santos

Palapa Society Needs A Home - The Palapa Society is looking for a new rental. Suitable properties should be fenced or walled and allow for safe drop-off for the children. Adequate street parking is also needed. We are looking for a minimum of 70m2 under roof as well as yard space for outdoor classes and related activities. Central Todos Santos is preferred, but we are open to easy-to-find locations in other areas. Our budget allows us to pay approximately 5000 pesos per month as well as utilities. We will responsibly maintain your property. If you know of a suitable property, please contact Brenda Casilas. - Brenda Casilas, brendacasilas [-a t-]hotmail.com, 612-141-6297, Todos Santos

Beca Ceremony - The Palapa Society is so proud of the 18 CECYT students who have participated in the Beca (scholarship) Program and are graduating this year. We will honor them in a small ceremony at the Palapa Center on Friday, June 24, at 4 p.m. We want to express deep gratitude to all the Beca Angels who have helped make this possible. Congratulations y bien hecho! - Susan Doyle, timsudoyle [-a t-]hotmail.com

Incredible Humpback Whale Rescue Video (Courtesy, Baja Pony Express) - Michael Fishbach narrates his encounter with a humpback whale entangled in a fishing net in the Sea of Cortez. Gershon Cohen and he have founded The Great Whale Conservancy to help and protect whales. Visit their website www.eii.org/gwc/, facebook page, and join them in helping to save these magnificent beings. www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBYPlcSD490 -

"Thank You" Ministerial Police - My neighbor's house was broken into in Las Tunas sometime last week. When I noticed it Wednesday afternoon, I contacted the Policia Ministerial. Comandante Martin Javier Martinez De Los Santos responded and took pictures and notes. It was hard to say what was taken, as the place was not mine. The obvious was a few tools had been taken and food had been eaten and left at the home. On Saturday, Comandante Martin returned to my house and asked me to take photos of some items they had recovered, and to ask my neighbor if they belong to him. As it turns out there was a group of three people who broke into 3-4 houses in the area. They have been caught. I just want to express the gratitude for myself and my neighbor. These officers worked quickly and efficiently. Thank you so much. - David, theranchkidz [-a t-]yahoo.com, Todos Santos

Phone Books and Dictionaries - Phone books that cover all of BCS are available in La Paz at Seccion Amarillo. To find them, go down Nicholas Bravo street (by Chedraui store) to the Telmex office. Turn left there to Allende, about 2 blocks over, and another left gets you to the phone books. They happily gave me several and also have on hand the phone books of the principal Mexican cities for reference use there in the office. Telmex sent me to them and Telmex doesn't keep the directories on hand.

The Harper Collins hardback unabridged spanish-english dictionaries are really good to have. I find them a necessity if you are serious about learning spanish. I've not seen them for sale here but buy them in the USA from Barnes and Noble. Cost is about 30 bucks, very well spent. Easy to read, lots of words, well made. - Randy Echter, rke1951 [-a t-]gmail.com, La Paz

Curso de Verano (Courtesy, Baja Pony Express) - The Curso de Verano is sponsored by our Delegation, the Dif office and The Asociacion de Artes (Los Barriles). This three week program will run from July 11, 2011, through July 30, 2011. There are 110 children enrolled in this program that runs from 8am till 1:30pm Monday through Friday all three weeks. We are looking for some people who are willing to give us a couple of hours or more if you like during this program. We have swimming, dancing, many different art programs of your choice, jewelry making and last but not least English classes. Remember you do not need to speak Spanish to teach English. There are several different sports classes also that are covered at this point in time by local instructors. This program is very well organized by Francie and our local Delegation. We would like to help with additional volunteers to make this program a continued success for our community. Please contact me directly Kathy at kaojaa [-a t-]gmail.com and we will accommodate the time you have available. Thanks so very much! - Los Barriles

Tepoztlan Ashram/School Needs Help - Hi Baja community! This beautiful ashram (Tashirat)/community school (Ixaya) in central Mexico is desperately in need of help. Tashirat is an orphanage that's run by volunteers around the world who take children into their loving care, who practice yoga and meditate daily in order to raise this children with the principle of love with discipline. Everyone there is a vegeterian and they recieve children with special needs (who, incidently, are making great progress).

They started by first providing a school for their own children and all of the needy children in the community who weren't able to pay the government school fees. Ixaya has since provided every kid an education and a free meal. If you cannot help financially, please help by spreading word of their work. A beautiful video features the wonderful things they do for these Mexican children.www.youtube.com/watch?v=GodS-7e8xlQ&feature=related, www.saveixaya.com, www.tashirat.com - bereniles [-a t-]hotmail.com, Baja California Sur

Adorable Kittens Seek Loving Home(s) - We were abandoned before our eyes were open (around 10 days) and a big brown dog found us. She is our rescue dog and her owner has given us a foster home to raise us up to be charming kittens. He spends lots of time with us and we love all the affection and give it right back. We are about 8 weeks old now and ready for our permanent homes! We are litter trained. We've had our first check-up at the vets and he proclaimed us healthy and ready for adoption. Won't you please adopt me or one of my sisters? Give Jaime a call or write Deborah an email if you’d like to meet us! That would be purrrrrrrrrrrfectly wonderful! - Jaime Wood, deborahhorn [-a t-]hotmail.com, 612-132-8893, Todos Santos
