Third Annual Festival D'Arte, La Paz - La Paz Six Begins Preparations for 3rd Annual Festival d’ Arte to be held Nov. 27, 2011, at Marina Palmira. The Coordinating Committee for the La Paz Festival D'Arte recently met to plan the 2011 event. Led by the La Paz Six, a civic-minded local group of artists here in La Paz, the next Festival is beginning to take shape.

After two successful years, with help from the city of La Paz, local cultural organizations, as well some State Government officials, the Festival d’Arte has rapidly become a celebration of art and music for all to enjoy. The coordinating committee hopes to find ways to emphasize the beauty and fragility of the Sierra De La Laguna Biosphere as part of the fabric of this year’s celebration.

Artists wishing to register for a booth, will follow the same procedure as last year. Registration Information will follow in subsequent announcements. Last year more than $3,000 USD was raised for local charities. - Kathy Bezy, Kathybezy [-a t-] goldrush.com, Baja California Sur

Many Thanks to St. Luke's And Amerimed - In May, I rushed my husband to St. Luke’s Clinic with major heart problems. (Many may not know it, but St. Luke’s is well equipped with EKG, X-ray, blood lab, and full-time medical staff). Upon discovery the situation was serious, Dr. Toledo accompanied Harry in the ambulance to the AmeriMed Hospital in San Jose del Cabo. AmeriMed has the only Cath lab in southern Baja as well as a skilled cardiac team. This capability literally saved Harry’s life when he went into heart failure and they were able to do an angioplasty on the spot. (American surgeons later commented on the expertise of the procedure).

After a week of complications, it was evident that more extensive surgery was needed and transport to the US was eminent. Again, the AmeriMed staff and Mario Trejo of St. Luke’s provided excellent information and helped coordinate the air evacuation, and ensured that Harry’s medical information was sent directly to our US hospital so they were ready when we arrived.

Additional thanks to Jacquie Schwoerke, a cardiac nurse from San Diego who happened to be in Todos Santos to do a presentation on health care and came with Mario to my home to discuss options, contacted the cardiac surgeon at our New Mexico hospital and also hand carried needed medical information to the states for us. Once we arrived in New Mexico, Mario called every few days to see how things were going and provided all the paperwork ready to submit to our US insurance company (in actual US insurance codes, no less). He even had someone meet me at the airport upon my return and drive me home to Todos Santos. This kind of service is way beyond anything we could ever expect.

Once Harry is allowed to return home, Mario and the doctors will set up a dialogue between the US doctors and the cardiac specialists here to help us continue his monitoring and exercise program. We are so grateful for not only the expertise and excellent facilities that were available to us, but for the amazing personal care and service that was so generously given on every level of our medical adventure! If anyone would like more information about our experience at St. Luke’s or AmeriMed, please contact us. - Sharon Morris, serendipityventures [-a t-] yahoo.com, 612-178-0104 or 612-108-3502, Baja California Sur

Dogs Die In Hot Cars - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Did you know that:

1. Even on a relatively mild 85º day, it only takes 10 minutes for the inside of your car to reach 102º - even when the windows have been left open an inch or two. Within 30 minutes a car's interior can actually reach a staggering 120º. Your car is now an oven.

2. Even if the temperature outside is a pleasant 70º, the inside of your car may be as much as 20 degrees hotter. Parking your car in shade does not offer protection on a hot day because the sun moves.

3. While humans have sweat glands all over our bodies that help regulate our body heat, dogs cool down mostly by panting, which is much less efficient than sweating. In only a short amount of time, a dog with a high body temperature can suffer critical damage to his nervous system, heart, liver and brain.
In short, if you can't keep Fluffy with you, it's better to leave her at home. Have a happy and healthy summer. Woof! - Amigos De Los Animales, www.amigosdeanimales.org, Baja California Sur

Recycling? - On Degollardo across from El Sol there is a recycling center. At that center is a block structure that is nearly full of trash that can't be recycled. Can someone please tell me what is going to happen to that trash, and the structure, once it is too full to put more trash in? - Max Kirk, maxiepad77 [-a t-] yahoo.com, 612- 118-3534

Adios Zumba Jan - I want to thank Jan the Zumba instructor at Rancho Pescadero for the great times, lots of laughs and the great cardio workout! Have a great trip and I look forward to seeing you in the fall. - The Ladies of Pescadero. - bajabeck [-a t-] gmail.com

Reliable Gardener/landscape Maintenance - It took me 7 years living in Mexico to find the right guy for the job. His name is Aaron. He has his own car, shows up on time, has an eye for detail, and a talent for creating landscape design. Aaron understands English better then he speeks it, so the comunication barrier is not an issue. I highly recommend Aaron. - Pat Light, patluz1 [-a t-] gmail.com

Zen Garden Revisited - New chef Carlos does dramatically different things to Lila's Asian cuisine. We could not have enjoyed our luncheon more. The 'pot stickers', carefully made from freshly minced vegetables, the beautifully prepared and served - piping hot - egg roll (Never a favorite with me because they are usually over-cooked). The three sauces we had were each very different and each had depth and character. Open daily from noon - 9 p.m., I think. Good food, spotless atmosphere and you can watch Carlos prepare your meal, if you like. - wsgps34 [-a t-] yahoo.com

"Good Dog" Needs A Ride Home To Rosarito From Guerrero Negro - Hola, It is a long story on how our dog (Einstein, he was named that from the shelter/rescue group) is still in Guerrero Negro after our car broke down 60 miles north of there almost four weeks ago. Actually, the story has a way in which the 'universe' can show a sense of humor on what one plans to do. LOL anyway - the car is still not fixed, however, it was towed to Rosarito and we are looking for the right and perfect motor (Subaru 2.5 liter engine) - if you know of one, please let me know.

The question is: do you know anyone going north (Rosarito) from Baja Sur that can stop in Guerrero Negro and give our dog ' a ride home?' He's good natured, calm, and mostly obeys simple commands. He weighs about 65 pounds and will stay "in the back" when you tell him "stay" - If you can 'bring him home' - we would gladly help out on your gas expenses. All he needs is a couple of times to go for a short walk to do his normal body functions. He will have his food and water bowls along with his bed - and, he is an experienced traveler. - Richard Herndon, richardofbaja [-a t-] yahoo.com

July 6: Need Ride From Cabo Airport To Todos Santos - I am arriving at the airport July 6 at 11:30 a.m. with some luggage and need a ride to Todos Santos. Will share expenses. - Thomas Garland, garlandtag [-a t-] gmail.com

Back to the States July 10 - Heading back to the States (as far as San Francisco if that's your destination too) on July 10 and would love to not be doing it solo. You could help with driving or just rest easy as co-pilot, either one is fine so long as a little gas cash gets chipped in. Folk/funk/rock/reggae ... whatever, it's all good as long as it keeps the good driving energy going. My girlfriend is heading straight home from the Galapagos, while I have the fun luck of returning to La Paz and getting our car and things back up to California. Let's take on this drive together! - gabriel.holt (at) gmail.com, Baja California Sur

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)

Let us know if you find or place your pet so we can remove your ad -

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

5 Puppys Need 5 Homes - I found 5 black puppies dumped alongside a deserted dirt road, outside of Pescadero. All 5 needs a good home, and TLC. Please adopt one, or two, if you can. I can't keep them. Thank you. Please call 612-140-7923. - Mary donegalmoon [-a t-] gmail.com, Pescadero

Dog Urgently Needs Your Help. - A good-tempered, sweet dog needs temporary immediate assistance and adoption. Present needs: A contained enclosure to manage shampoo bath every 3 days for 2 weeks, Flea/tick preventive med application, renew rabies shot. She has had care for over a year to bring her to good health but she can no longer remain on our commercial property. If no one steps forward to assistance by June 30, I have no choice but the unspeakable. - Lady, macnmoli [-a t-] yahoo.com, 612-118-3423, Pescadero

Three Dog Surprise Delivery -Three gorgeous puppies were dropped off at my house and there's no way I can keep them all.

The pups may be Australian Shepherd mix, though the biggest one (black & white in color) has fur more like a lab.

Lost Dog Seen At La Posa - A small white/cream-colored dog was seen running and hiding in the tall rushes at the north end of La Posa lagoon. It is similar to a poodle, with long floppy ears, wearing a pink and black dog-dress. Do you know of anyone who dresses their dog like that? Thanks - Serena S, brentserena [-a t-] gmail.com, 612-132-8913

Take Me! - I have a female dachshund with all her shots and I have her paper work. I really love her but I am having a baby this month; I can't take the risk of tripping over her and hurting my baby. Please, if you know of anybody who wants her, let me know. Thank you. - Taylor Daniels, taylor210210 [-a t-] hotmail.com, 612-104-8209

Beautiful Dog Needs Home - We fostered a female dog named Onyx since she was 8 weeks old. She has been at a trainer for 3 weeks. She has a lot of energy and really needs a lot of property to run on.

You can contact Everesto at the shelter for more information. - Everesto, evaristoah [-a t-] hotmail.com, www.loscaboshumanesociety.com, 624-129-8346, Cabo San Lucas
