News and Events, Questions and Answers

Pitalla Mining Project Hearings - On Dec. 15, 2011, Agronaut Gold filed for operating permits for the mammoth open pit Pitalla Gold mine in San Antonio. As part of the permitting process the community, in this case the La Paz municipality of which we are a part, has the right to file for public hearings. After a major campaign the federal government approved the public hearings, which gives the mining company an opportunity to present their project and the public the opportunity to comment and ask questions. The hearings were yesterday. The 9-hour event was an amazing exercise in democracy. In spite of the fact that the mining company bussed in over 200 people complete with pro mining tee shirts, the number of citizens opposing the mine completely overwhelmed the mining company's strategy.

The state government has announced they will oppose the permits, the Municipal government has reiterated their opposition and now the Coordinating Council of SEMARNAT has rejected the project. The public has until March 6 to present written observations and comments about the mine at the offices of SEMARNAT on Calle Obregon in La Paz.

A huge thank you to everyone who showed up at yesterdays hearings and for all of you who have supported Agua Vale Mas Que Oro for the past two years. - Elena Moreno, info [- at -] aguavalemasqueoro.com, 612-145-0050

Smallish Rug Needed For Classroom - The kids want to read!! The 3rd grade class of the Escuela Miguel Hidalgo needs help making a part of their classroom into a "Reading Corner." They need a smallish rug (2x2mts +/-). Please let us know if you have one you can donate for their use.

The public schools have many needs but they have a hard time getting information out to the community. The parents do what hey can. Some of the classrooms were broken into over the weekend. Nothing was stolen but things were damaged. Glass windows need to be replaced, walls repainted, etc. - Happy Moreno, happymoreno1 [- at -] yahoo.com, 612-145-0472

IRS Form 3520 Information - I have recently been told that I should have been filing a form 3520 with the IRS every year because I have an asset in a "foreign trust," in this case a fideicomiso. I'm told the penalties for failing to do this are draconian. Has anyone out there dealt with this? Our property is vacant and earns nothing. I'd appreciate any information about how this has affected others. - Carol Selby

Ride Request Northward - Hello, I'm a gardener/baker/yoga teacher in Pescadero, warming up to a journey North come the end of the month. I'm envisioning myself in sunny San Diego, but I would be thrilled for any assistance getting at least to Baja Norte where I can catch a cheaper bus. I will gladly share gas money, snacks, poems, ideas, pleasant silence, and driving assistance if you would like. Sometime between the 23rd and the 28th would be ideal, but I am wicked flexible. Thanks! - Jacob Wartell, jwartell [- at -] coa.edu
