At 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 9, the popular “Meet the Artist” series will continue its season with our internationally known, hometown painter and art teacher, Erick Ochoa, who will discuss the development of his stellar career as an artist.

At 6 p.m. the same evening, after Erick’s presentation, the gallery doors will open on this year’s Open Studio Tour Preview Show and Party featuring works from each of the 31 participating tour artists. This sampler will help you plan your day visiting studios that will be open to the public, for one day only, Feb. 12, 2012.

Fuel Overcharge In Guerrero Negro - Everyone traveling north and south be aware of a situation at the PeMex nearest the flag in Guerrero Negro. It's the one located just north of the entrance to GN. They are, once again, shorting on the amount and overcharging by 10 pesos per litre. I questioned the man in charge and showed him all of my other facturas. He shrugged and said it was because of the higher cost of cargo. We wondered how come the one just north of that PeMex was totally full of vehicles getting fuel and yet when we drove into the one closest to town it was deserted. We thought perhaps he was out of fuel. He said no. We should have kept going right then. - Elizabeth Honneyman, EHcoz [- at -] aol.com
