Local Happening Narco/Trafico - From Yahoo News: Cabo San Lucas, Mexico (AP) — Mexican officials say hundreds of people cowered for more than an hour at a shopping center in the resort town of Cabo San Lucas while security forces traded fire with gunmen outside and then searched for them in stores.

No injuries have been reported from Saturday afternoon's gunbattle, which did damage some cars and entrance doors. Police say they arrested two men suspected of being involved in an overnight attack near the center that killed a Mexican marine. Authorities say the shooting at the Plaza Sendero shopping center erupted when marines, soldiers and police found armed men in the parking lot. Police ordered shoppers to stay inside during the shooting and later search. People were allowed to leave an hour later. - Janel, janelb3 [- at -] yahoo.com, Todos Santos

Need Land For Animal Sanctuary - We would like to establish a farm animal sanctuary to rescue several animals being held in deplorable conditions in Pescadero. In order to do this, we first need a piece of land nearby where these animals can be taken. Any unused property ~1/3 acre and up in Pescadero would be ideal.
  • Do you have land that you are not planning to use for a couple of years? Maybe 2 or 3?
  • Would you be willing to let us care for some animals there?
If your property is already fenced, that would be excellent, otherwise, we will make that improvement ourselves. By lending your property, you will enable us to move quickly forward with our planned rescue. We hope not only to create a sanctuary to rescue farm animals being abused, but eventually to open up the sanctuary to the public for educational purposes, a place where people can come and meet the animals and get to know them, not as commodities but as the special creatures they really are.

Eventually, we hope to build a kiosk to prepare and sell vegan hot dogs, hamburgers, ensaladas, soy and coconut milk ice creams and sodas at the same location so that when tourists come to meet the animals, they can also enjoy a cruelty free picnic. (Who wants to eat pork sausage while bonding with a pig?)

Any revenue we obtain will pay for food and water for the animals and the other expenses of running the sanctuary. We will start small: A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. ... But ultimately become an important part of the cultural, tourist and educational offerings of the area. If you can help with land or want to get involved in other ways, please contact me. - Cheryl Hugle, allinharmony [- at -] gmail.com, allinharmony.org, Todos Santos

Volunteers Get Hungry Too - There are a number of vets and vet techs coming from the U.S. to give us the gift of their time and expertise to help control our animal population. Our local vets and other community members will also volunteer their time. This is hard work and everyone gets hungry. We will have at least 20 hungry people each day of the clinic. Could you make a few sandwiches? Maybe some cookies? Fruit and vegetables or other snacks; water and soda very welcome. The clinic will take place at La Canada del Diablo on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, November 17, 18 and 19. Please call or email if you are able to help. - Maryann, maryanndoug [- at -] gmail.com, 145-0791

The walls have beautifully painted sayings that are uplifting and empowering, showcasing her philosophy and vision for a co-creative future.

Pearl Farm In La Paz - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Have you ever wondered about the famous La Paz pearls, prized world wide and included in the crown jewels of the royalty of Spain, England and France? Last spring, twelve of us from Los Barriles had a wonderful weekend adventure and got the full story on a very interesting and informative tour (in English) conducted by Dr. Carlos Cáceres, the founder of Perlas del Cortez www.perlasdelcortez.com, a pearl farm in La Paz.

Dr. Cáceres is a professor at the Universidad Autonoma de Baja California Sur, conducting research on aquaculture and sustainably reviving pearl farming in in Baja. Dr. Cáceres met us at our hotel on Sunday morning. Our first stop was at the Museum of Anthropology for the history and importance of pearling in Baja. Then we drove to his pearl farm in Pichilingue where he explained and demonstrated, step-by-step, the process of collecting and growing oysters, seeding the oysters and ultimately harvesting the beautiful black pearls.

It was fascinating. Dr. Cáceres enthusiasm and passion for not only pearls, but our wonderful natural environment is contagious. Thumbs up from all twelve of us for Dr Cáceres and the tour. I was recently in contact with Dr. Carlos Cáceres ccaceres [- at -] uabcs.mx, and he is conducting tours again the fall. Contact him directly to make arrangements. To make it a really special weekend, go to La Paz on Saturday, spend the night and have dinner at Restaurante Las Tres Virgenes (Calle Madero #1130, between Constitution and Hildalgo). - Holly Burgin, www.perlasdelcortez.com

Moving to Pescadero and Looking to Rent or Homesit - Hi there amigos! I'm currently living in La Paz but planning to move to Pescadero and I'm looking for a place to rent. Nothing fancy or expensive, just a nice place to live and rest. I'm cool with sharing a place. I'm friendly, tidy, well organized, with hands-on attitude and love to learn to cook. I'm planning to move down in the following weeks. I know it's a hard time to ask for a house to home sit, but I'm also open to do that if there's a chance. So, if someone is renting or willing to share a place, please be so kind to let me know and contact me. - Hector Jaime, hectorjf [- at -] gmail.com, 612-152-1770

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 -

Found Puppy - I found a small, tan, female puppy with a green collar Saturday afternoon in front of Caffe Todos Santos. She seems to be 2-4 months old perhaps, very clean, and very healthy. I assumed her owner was close by but nobody knew anything about her. We later believed she may have gone missing the night prior because our dogs were barking at a small animal that night. She's being taken care of at the Old Charles Stewart home (Obregon & Centenario, next to Caffe Todos Santos) if the owner happens to find this ad. - Janine Wall, coneyislandgreen [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-152-4499, Todos Santos

Sweetheart Cat Needs Home - Lovable, affectionate, friendly and well mannered. This "street cat" has been spayed, is young but not too, probably around a year old. She's been given flea treatment, fed well for a few weeks and in good shape now. But we are leaving for the states at the end of November and she needs to find a permanent home. - Colleen Ray, 805-712-1664, 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

Can You Adopt Alex's Dog? - The late Alejandro "Alex" Manjarrez Zuniga leaves behind a beautiful 2-year-old male pointer-mix. Very well behaved, street wise and great with kids. Those interested please contact. - Rick Plaia, rickplaia [- at -] hotmail.com, 612-178-0000, Todos Santos
