Interests along the southern coast of Mexico should monitor the progress of this system:


Maximum sustained winds are near 40 mph, 60 km/h, with higher gusts. Strengthening is expected during the next 48 hours and Hillary could become a hurricane within the next two days. Estimated minimum central pressure is 1005 mb, 29.68 inches.

Looking For A Ride Share First Week in November. - I'm driving from Kelowna, British Columbia to Cabo first week of November. Will be traveling via I-5 through Oregon and California. Won't have much spare room for extra luggage, so if you travel light, are willing to share expenses and want to have a heck of a road trip, get back to me. I did this drive last year so I'm familiar with the route and the process. Will be crossing at TJ. I prefer to do the driving myself, but the company and second set of eyes are a plus. Thanks, Mirek - Mirek Hrabanek, canczech26 [ - a t - ] hotmail.com, Cabo San Lucas

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 -

Attention All Animal Lovers! - The annual Spay/Neuter Clinic will be Nov. 17, 18, and 19. We are expecting four vets from the States, as well as our local vets to be joining in our efforts to reduce the overpopulation of dogs and cats in our neighborhoods. If any of you have contacts in the surrounding ranchos, where animals need spaying/neutering, we'd love to hear from you.

Please mark the dates on your calendar! For more information please contact Angelique at BajaKitties [ - a t - ] Yahoo.com. Thank you. - Amigos de los Animales de Todos Santos A.C.

Dog Found in La Poza >>>> - This dog has come to my home in La Poza. Appears to be well taken care of and may have run away with fireworks going off last night. He is a large dog, part Shepherd and Rottweiler in appearance. - Ruth Asercion, REAsercion [ - a t - ] hotmail.com, 612-145-1051

Missing Friend - Our friend went missing Thursday night (Sept. 8) We miss him and so does his buddy. He was last seen around the Sandbar. He is brown, short hair and has two scars (a large scar on his left flank and a thin white scar around his neck which was caused by a string he was tied up with when we rescued him). He has (had) a red collar. Instead of him moping around, feeling sad and lonely, why not bring him back and let him come home? He is not a stray and we would like him back home sleeping in his favorite spot. If anyone has seen him, please get in touch. email jimiykaren [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, phone 130-3022 - jimiykaren [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, Pescadero

<<<< Missing Dog!!! - Zoë is a white cocker spaniel with light tan spots, and she has been missing since Sunday, Sept. 11, in Colonia Olivos (not too far from Padre Kino and 5 de Febrero, La Paz). We were out of town and had some friends taking care of her. Not sure what happened exactly, but she got out of their gate when they were gone Sunday morning. She has a grey collar, but no tags, unfortunately. She's eight years old, and has always been an inside dog. If you have seen her, or have any idea where she might be, please give us a call! We desperately want her back, and miss her! Thank you! - Stephanie Arteaga, 612-155-5555 or 612-117-3295
