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.
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.
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
