San Antonio Mining Petition Request - [Translated From Spanish - Editor] You participated in the historic January 16 protest in which more than 9,000 citizens expressed our desire to keep Baja California Sur free of toxic mining. Now once again we need your participation. The foreign mining company [behind this project] submitted its Environmental Impact Statement to Semarnat on the last working day of 2011, taking advantage of the holidays. We are organizing an Emergency effort to raise the maximum number of signed petitions to SEMARNAT before the government-set deadline of January 09, requesting a Public Meeting to ensure that this project is prevented. This is the last and only opportunity that the law gives us to oppose this predatory project. What Do You Have To Do?:
1. Download and print the first 2 pages of this [PDF] document: www.mediafire.com/?g3u6advxx5u93cb

2. Sign it and attach a copy of your IFE card (both sides). May be signed only by Mexicans and Nationalized foreigners. If you live in La Paz, deliver it at: Tepoznieves, located in the Mega Comercial plaza, from 10 AM to 9 PM or Bio-Ingeniería, located at Sonora # 1115 Esq Marcelo Rubio (2 blocks from Mueblería San Diego / San Diego Furniture) from 9 AM to 5 PM.

Your Help Is Needed - The Hogar del Nino (Children's Home) has found itself in need of a large chest freezer and a large refrigerator. Their old, inefficient freezer had completely quit working and their refrigerator is on it's last legs. This could be a write-off for your Mexican corporation.

They could also use the help of a mechanic. All of their vehicles need attention. If you have mechanical skills and have a little time to donate, please let me know.

And lastly, they could use some shelves and shelving materials, as well as clothes hangers. Gracias! - nancyserfas [- at -] aol.com, www.PadrinoProject.com

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 -

Have You Seen Leyla?? - Attention Pescadero Residents - Please help! I've just returned from a trip to find out that my beautiful (very blonde!) "golden retriever" mix, "Leyla" - my faithful companion for more than three years - "went missing" around the 10th of December. The people that I'd paid to care for her are clueless - and I am truly beyond heartsick! She left from my yard in north Pescadero - right by the Huerta Huizapol - a few blocks (on the right-hand side) before the Pemex if you're coming in from Todos Santos. I'm offering a generous reward for your help in returning Leyla to her home! She's very people-friendly and loves car rides. Please call me if you have any information and can help. - Barbara Chick, 044-612-154-5983, Pescadero

<<<- Help Us Find a Home for This Little Guy - Someone left us this little "gift in the night" We cannot keep him. We have tried the usual refuge places to no avail. Our only alternative is to put him to sleep. He is litter box trained and has been treated for fleas. He is very well-behaved and is on the rebound from near starvation. Please help him. We live in Todos Santos in the Las Brisas Barrio. - Leo, 612-103-9576

Home For The Holidays? - Sweet Lobo was brought from Punto Lobos to the spay and neuter clinic, where everyone fell in love with him. Lobo has lots of love to give and after fostering him for only a few weeks, he also shows that he will make an excellent watchdog. Lobo has house manners, has been neutered, vaccinated and with his pedicure and bubble bath he is a beautiful dog ready for his forever home. To make Lobo's holiday wish for a home come true, please contact - Connie Mical, conan [- at -] frontiernet.net, 178-0081, Todos Santos

Stray Dog Needs Ride To Cabo Humane Society - During the fireworks a dog showed up at my casa. A brindle pit bull, skinny, scared, humble. I can't keep him and have no way to take him to Cabo to the Humane Society. Can you help? I live in Todos Santos, in the otro lado. 612-118-7393 - Anne Marie Maurier, l.maurier [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-118-7393

Looking For A Better Life - We Ran Away From Home - Hi, Our names are Gus & Scout and we're brothers. We left home because there were 11 of us and we just didn't all get along very well. And, a dog had recently killed one of our brothers and later attacked our sister. It was getting scary.

We're 18 months old, fixed, and can be friendly. I have gray and black stripes with white feet and am big for my age. Gus is totally black, green eyes, and average size. Our owners miss us a lot and just want people in Pescadero (just north of the Tequila Factory by the beach) or there about -- to know that we're cool cats and could use a little love and food if you see us hanging around. We're outdoor cats and can fend for ourselves but... Thanks for reading about us and please be nice to us if we stop by for a visit :-) - Bonnie, bajapeacewear [- at -] hotmail.com, Pescadero
