News and Events, Questions and Answers

"El Chapo" Eludes Mexican Police In Cabo San Lucas - By The Associated Press - Mexican federal police nearly nabbed drug-kingpin, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman in a coastal mansion located in the exclusive Punta Ballena development in Cabo San Lucas three weeks ago. Guzman's Sinaloa cartel controls trafficking in nearly half of Mexico. Much of the rest of the country is in the hands of the Zetas cartel. He has a $7 million bounty on his head in Mexico and the U.S., and teams of law enforcement agents from both countries are devoted to his capture.

The Los Cabos area is considered one of the safest locations in Mexico, and a favorite vacation spot despite the violence that plagues much of the rest of the country. But the peninsula also has been frequented by drug lords. Federal police arrested one of Mexico's most violent drug traffickers, Teodoro Garcia Simental, known as "El Teo," two years ago in the home he owned in La Paz. The U.S. Coast Guard in 2006 arrested Francisco Javier Arellano Felix, head of the Tijuana-based Arellano Felix gang, as he was sport fishing off the coast of Los Cabos.

Ping Pong Tournament Results - The organizers of the tournament would like to take this opportunity to thank Baja Beans, all the volunteers, the players and the spectators who helped make the event a huge success. Over 14,000 pesos were raised. This money will be used to send lifeguards to the United States for training and certification.

The tournament had an A level draw, an A level consolation draw, a B level draw, a B level consolation draw, and a doubles draw. Unfortunately, not all of the players’ last names were noted at the tournament, but you know who you are. The A level was won by Lee, who beat Pescadero’s own Robert Quirk in a hard fought, down to the wire, exciting final, 3 games to 2. The B level was won by Don, who beat George in the final. The doubles was won by the team of Todos Santos’ own Marco Torres and Peter Lepine, who defeated the A level winner, Lee and his partner Michael Omaha, 3 games to 2. The A Consolation was won by Sam, who defeated Jimmy in the final, and finally, the B consolation was won by Dennis Naigle, who beat Ben of Ben and the Men fame. - Oscar Rosales, oscar5682 [- at -] gmail.com

Blue Medical Net Hospital In La Paz - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - Having recently had the distinction of being an inpatient in Blue Medical Net Hospital, I wanted to pass on information about this new medical facility located along the 4 lane (across from Home Depot).

I have had several incidents over the past year where I had to be treated at their facility. I cannot say enough good things about the medical staff, their professionalism, and concern for each of their patients. Can you imagine in this day and age that a hospital will care more for their patients than the US Dollar or PESO ! And when did a surgeon care enough about his patient's stress level prior to surgery and had a masseuse come in to give a relaxing massage to help alleviate that stress ... well, it happened and it's not out of the ordinary for them to take special care of their patients.

Recently the Blue Medical staff has been placing Announcements in the Gringo Gazette and in the local Daily News giving information on the specialists that are associated with Blue Medical Net. Take the time to check them out - the medical staff have been trained in the top medical schools in the U.S. and in Mexico and other countries - and they speak English. They will gladly take you on a tour of their facility; ie: E.R., Pharmacy, treatment rooms, X-ray, operating room, comfortable and roomy patient rooms, etc. Call and ask about the medical specialists that are available. Phone 624-104-3911 and talk with an English speaking receptionist. - The Baja Western Onion

Wind And C [- at -] Suki’s Saint Paddy’s Day Feast Saturday, March 17th, 2012 - At Wind and C’s [- at -] Suki’s in Todos Santos green is more than a holiday color. The Valentine's Day Dinner at La Santeña proved that two chefs are better than one! (OK, not always, but these two might be special) The collaborative creative spark continues with Chef Carolen, the “C” in Wind and C [- at -] Suki’s and Chef Tony Peralta of La Santeña teaming up again, creating a Saint Patrick’s Day Menu to knock your green socks off. As always, Carolen and Wind and crew will be using super fresh produce from the restaurant garden, and all ingredients are sourced locally, ethically, and sustainably as possible. 300 pesos per person includes the following four course menu:
  • Appetizer: House cured salmon with dill cream
  • Soup: Garden fresh broccoli soup garnished with blue cheese crisps
  • Main: Corned Beef and colcannon (mashed potatoes and cabbage), served with onion gravy. Veggie option available.
  • Dessert: Stout Irish gingerbread with whipped cream and Baileys jello
  • And of course, we wouldn’t forget the drinks on this festive holiday- our menu includes a pint of fresh Baja Brewing Company Beer or a glass of wine.
So if missed your chance to experience these two at Valentines Day, or if you were lucky enough to be there the first time and want more of the love... Reservations suggested as limited seating is available. Also, Chef Carolen is Irish from Nor Cal, and Chef Tony is a Choyero from La Paz, but we are resisting any and all combinations of clever Mexi-Mick cuteness. La Santeña at Hotel Casa Tota will be open and serving the usual fresh Mex-cellent food. windandc [- at -] pacific.net, www.HotelCasaTota.com, Todos Santos
