East Cape Arts Association Abandons Art Center Project - October 19, 2011 – The East Cape Arts Association announced today that they are abandoning the Colina del Sol art center project. After careful consideration of the current global economic situation, the Association’s board of directors has determined that sufficient fund cannot be raised to move forward with the project. The board would like to thank all those who contributed and worked on this project. Carlos Estrada from Colina del Sol deserves a special thanks for his willingness to donate the land for the art center and for his continued support.

Any monies raised for the art center project will be returned. All monies received by the Association in future will be used for the children’s art programs.

Water Shortage Or What? - Since September our road has been having problems with city water. It seems that they are turning the valve on and off, and when it is open, it is not open all the way which means that the pressure is too low to fill Tanques on the roofs. The water has been off almost all the time for the last 9 days. Is this happening in any other areas of Todos Santos? Please let us know. - Sylvia St.clair, Todos Santos

Travelling South - Just want to let people know that there is construction south of Ensenada and also north of Guerrero Negro that makes for slow going - be patient! Stayed at the Paraiso Colonet hotel, just south of Colonet. Lovely room, great food and nice Mexican owner who speaks English! Had some really bad back pain and found a CA retired but newly established chiropractor in San Quintin, MX 616-107-3124. If you need an adjustment, I highly recommend him. - , cmyviews [ - a t - ] yahoo.com

Where Can You Rent Mountain Bikes? - People always ask where they can rent a Mountain Bike and I don't have an answer for them. Might be a good opportunity for somebody? Anybody know where they are available? - Aldo, tropic.aldo [ - a t - ] yahoo.com, Todos Santos

Dogs and Cabo Airport - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Just returned with our dog and discovered a new procedure upon arrival regarding dogs. You must take your dog to the Agricultural office, show the official the Original rabies and health certificate and have the dog inspected. They give you two inspection certificates with official stamps. You need one stamped certificate to leave with the dog if you plan to return by air to the US. Our delay getting out of the airport: one hour! - Bob And Karen Porter

Information For Boaters - Courtesy Ventana View - We were boarded on Sunday by the Mexican navy. They were very polite and helpful, and this is what we learned... They check for fishing licenses, you must carry them as well as the original of your vessel license from your home Province / State. They also want to see your original immigration document and a Temporary Import Permit for the vessel if it is OVER 4 Meters
The Temporary Import Permit may be obtained at Pichilingue, Port Authority ( Banjercito ) Take originals and copies of Passport, Immigration document, Vessel Permit, Trailer Registration and Outboard motor registration or Bill of Sale. The cost is $ 50.00 USD for 10 years. Thank you to Yolanda at the the Marina for the information on how to get the Importation Permit! - Ivan and Marilyn

La Paz Tope Note - Courtesy Ventana View - Yesterday Dan and I went into La Paz for groceries. On the way back just past the new Casino are a series of white lines and bumps to slow you down before an intersection. We looked for a stop sign that usually follows bumps like that - none existed. We stopped at the light one block after the previous intersection. Dan looked back and saw a motorcycle cop following us, not unusual in La Paz. But then he pulled up alongside us and waved us over. He said we failed to stop at the stop sign back there where the bumps were. We said no, we didn't see any stop sign and wanted to go back and look. The cop then asked us to follow him and pull over further than what seemed necessary - he took us further down the road so any possibility of looking at the "stop sign" would be difficult. Both of us stated there was no stop sign by the bumps and we wanted to walk back and look (it was about 91 degrees and humid). We were going back and forth with this guy and finally he said OK just go and be careful next time. Today, we went back into La Paz and basically followed the same route back. There is no Stop Sign anywhere around the bumps. We stopped anyway at the last white line/ bump. Some things just don't change. Be aware and don't ask how much do I owe. - Michelle Koff
