All Okay In Your Barrio? - Things going the way you would like? Are you having lack of water issues? Is garbage pick up reliable or available at all? Are your neighbors respecting local zoning ordinances? Is there a general sense of respect for the environment? Do you feel safe and secure with our local fire and police protection? How is the condition of the roads in your neighborhood?
We all felt like we found paradise coming to live in Todos Santos. But our community continues to grow and we need help in order to maintain its beauty and integrity. How can we get this help, and what can we do to help ourselves?
It is time to come together as a community and see what we can accomplish. Los Colonos Homeowners Association, a community organization, is an established, legally-recognized Mexican non-profit corporation. But we need you the members to give it strength. We need to hear from you.

Please Help Me - My precious dog disappeared from my home in Canada Honda (north/west of Last Tunas) She was last seen on Monday, Oct. 31.

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
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
