Mining Update: San Antonio Mega Mine Files For Permits - Right before the Christmas holidays the Canadian company Agronaut Gold filed with federal agencies for the operations permits and change of zoning necessary to begin to extract gold from the Pitalla mine, a mega mining project proposed in San Antonio which is part of a vast 46,000 ha. (more than 100,000 acres) concession between San Antionio and Los Planos. Residents from the Municipality of La Paz have the right to file for public hearings. We have submitted requests on behalf of residents of Todos Santos and many people from La Paz are also filing for the hearings. Once the hearings are scheduled we will advise the Todos Santos community so that those who are interested can attend the public hearings. It is very important that we show up and express our rejection of this mega mining project that threatens the southern Baja peninsula.

The Federal government has yet to publish the environmental impact study submitted by the mining company. Once we receive the study we will hold a meeting to look at the details of this project and how it might impact our community. If you would like more information please contact us. - Elena Moreno, info [- at -] aguavalemasqueoro.com, www.aguavalemasqueoro.com, 612-145-0050

Café Des Artists Slates First Meeting - Visual Artists residing in and around Todos Santos, as well as artists here on vacation, have expressed an interest in getting together to talk about and share experiences on making and marketing their art. To facilitate this, we are planning to hold monthly meetings at Caffé Todos Santos during the high season. The first ”Café Des Artists” gathering or coffee session will be held on Thursday, Jan. 26, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Caffé Todos Santos will set a space aside for us to gather, however artists will be responsible for their own food and beverage. On Jan. 26 we will talk about inspiration and work habits. Topics for subsequent gatherings will be determined by the artists in attendance. What you get out of these gatherings will depend on the sharing of all the artists in attendance. We hope you will join us at the January 26 meeting and share your ideas and experiences. - Diane Knight, dianekknight [- at -] hotmail.com, 145-0586

Do You Know Her??? - January 10th this lovely female Shepard came into our yard (right by the road leading to La Poza) hoping for a kind human touch and an invitation to dinner. She's in excellent condition, very well-behaved and obedient - learning immediately to give our cat her space. She is very smart and responds immediately to any kindness! She had an extremely heavy clip on her weathered collar indicating that she may have been tied - possibly over an extended period as her collar shows much stress and is cut away underneath this clip - obviously from straining to get free. I cannot keep this dog even for one more week. If she is yours - claim her now - or if you would like to consider this beautiful girl as your own faithful companion - the time is NOW. Call Linda Stobbe at 145-0377. - Linda Stobbe, lsstobbe [- at -] yahoo.com, 145-0377, Todos Santos

<<<- 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

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

<<<- 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

Lost Golden Retriever - Lost GR in North Pescadero area 3 weeks ago. Was sick with weepy eyes and caretakers let her go. Am home now and heartbroken. If you have seen her(Layla), please call Barbara Chick at 612-154- 5983. Reward - Barbara Chick, 612-154-5983

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
