Hurricane Dora - First Major Hurricane Of The 2011 Season - National Hurricane Center Miami Fl. 5:00 AM PDT Wed Jul 20 2011: The center of hurricane Dora was located near latitude 14.4 north...longitude 102.3 west. Dora is moving toward the west-northwest near 18 mph...30 km/h. A turn toward the northwest and a gradual decrease in forward are expected over the next 48 hours. On the forecast track, the center of Dora is expected to move nearly parallel to the coast of southwestern Mexico over the next couple of days. Dora could also threaten the southern Baja California peninsula in 60 to 72 hours.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 90 mph...140 km/h. with higher gusts. Dora is a category one hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind scale. Additional strengthening is forecast during the next 48 hours, and Dora could become a major hurricane by late tonight.

Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 35 miles / 55 km. from the center, and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 140 miles / 220 km.

NOAA's Climate Prediction Center is predicting a below-normal hurricane season for the Eastern Pacific in 2011, with 9 to 15 named storms, five to eight becoming hurricanes, and one to three expected to become a major hurricane (category 3 or higher). An average Eastern Pacific hurricane season will have 15 to 16 named storms, with eight to nine becoming hurricanes and four becoming major hurricanes. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15 through November 30, with peak activity from July through September.

Olive Ridley Nesting Season - Olive Ridley Sea Turtles nest on the shores of Todos Santos every year beginning in July. They lay between 80 and 120 eggs per nest between the high-tide line and the dunes. Here in Todos, the major threat to these sea turtle eggs is coyote depredation, harvest by humans, and vehicular traffic on the beach. To protect the eggs from these threats, nests are relocated to an open-air corral for their 45-day incubation period. Join us this summer for this amazing conservation event. Contact us to plan your family camp-out, organize a school field trip or create a group conservation activity. - Tortugueros Las Playitas, tortugueroslasplayitas [ - a t - ] gmail.com, www.todostortugueros.org, 145-0353, Todos Santos

Pescadero Community - We are creating a Directory of Services related to Health, Security, Comunications, Public and Cultural Services, and Tourism (among others). Our goal is to provide the decision makers of the Municipio de La Paz an overview of the different talents willing to participate in the creation of a better Pescadero. We are scheduled to meet with seven directors on their areas of the new Esthela Ponce administration and we want to give them options so they can see WE want a better place to live, and we are ready to help and work for it. If you are now or have been involved in a profession related to these topics and are interested and willing to be in this directory, please send me your name, field of interest and, if possible, a short (three-line) biography. - Hesed Najera, hesedn [ - a t - ] hotmail.com, 612-151-2514

Volleyball Tournament in Pescadero - Carnitas "Puro" Michoacan (taco stand at "T" entrance to Pescadero and newly opened next to Shut-up Franks in Todos) came up with this idea and will put up tournament prize money. There is a volleyball net available for the Centro Parque in Pescadero where practices can be scheduled and the tournament could be held. If there is enough interest, a donation fund could be collected to provide a volleyball to each team who enters--a team signup being required for six players and two alternates. Volleyballs are about 100-150 pesos each and helps support of our local sporting goods/electronics store in Pescadero central, "Yovani."

We hope for a Summer Tourney if there is enough interest while kids are out of school. Perhaps mixed teams adults and kids, adults only and kids only. A Winter Tourney could also be a real possibility. This is another great opportunity to integrate into our community. If you have interest in forming a team or possess an individual interest to join a team, are interested in helping coordinate and determine the grounds rules, or would like to provide funds to purchase volleyballs or help sponsor any type of event-related activity behind the scenes or during the tournament, contact - Pescadero Activites, southbeachcom2010 [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, Pescadero

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 -

Have You Lost This Dog? - A beautiful Pointer has appeared on our street corner in the last week and is clearly lost. (Please see photo.) He is mature, wearing a pale blue "Coastal" collar with no ID on it. He may be purebred Pointer, or a Boxer cross. He's being fed and watered where he is but he's distressed and frightened on the street, and is clearly a lost or stolen/abandoned pet. He's currently hanging out - not going too far from the water supply - on the corner of Calle Insurgentes and Agua Dulce, in La Posada colonia in La Paz (behind the VW agency, towards the water). He's very friendly, doesn't look like he's been on the street long, and is in great condition. It would be fab to find his owners - I imagine someone is missing him very much. - Penny Cottee, pennycottee [ - a t - ] ymail.com, La Paz
