The Orphanage Needs Your Help! - Our local orphanage near the Pemex on the road to La Pas desperately needs your help. They have received an electric bill for $10,000 pesos and can't even begin to pay it. There are at least 30 people living on the property and all their electricity is on one meter. They are, of course, billed at the highest rate of CFE even though they are a non-profit and all the kids come to them through the government. No breaks!

Ehrlichiosis (Ehrlichia) Alert For Dog Owners - Recently in the Todos Santos area several dogs have died from Ehrlichia. According to a number of veterinarians from the U.S., 99.8 percent of the dogs living in our area have this disease. The illness is transmitted by a tick bite, which passes an ehrlichia organism into the blood stream. Even though your pet may not have ticks on their body, all it takes is one bite!
