Donate To The Red Cross - Courtesy La Paz Gringos - I´m sure by now you´ve all seen the various people in and around La Paz collecting for the Red Cross. A great way to make your donation is on your land line. By dialing *6565 the donation will go on your Telmex bill. For every peso you donate in that way, the Carlos Slim foundation will match. As explained on the Telmex website, the caller dialing the special Colecta line will be asked to press 1 to make a 500-peso donation, 2 for $300, 3 for $150, 4 for $100 and 5 for $50. Repeat calls are required to boost the total up to 2000 pesos. The full amount will charged to the client’s next phone bill, free of IVA (valued added tax). It is noted that phone lines that are blocked for 900 numbers are not eligible.

As you all should know, the Red Cross performs an amazing service without charge. I don´t know if it´s still true, but a few years ago doctors and nurses performed required community service with the Red Cross. If you wish to donate in this manner, do it soon, as the offer expires midnight March 31. To make a tax-deductible on-line donation, simply click here: donate.icf-xchange.org/donate.php/losninosdelapaz.

Wanted: Paint! - I will be collecting paint donations for El Triunfo. Last year's donations painted 11 houses. Those who attended the Art Fair could easily see the positive changes in El Triunfo. Thanks for helping the people freshen the face of our historic colonial pueblo. Please drop off any usable paint to the Baja Properties Office in Los Barriles. Caffe El Triunfo is a collection point for La Paz and Todos Santos donations. Call or email me and I will come to your home and pick up the paint for distribution to the Triunfenos who need it. - Link Forte, cabolink [- at -] yahoo.com, cell 624 -182-4068

Military Checkpoints - Second hand information, but word is that the military checkpoint near Loreto planted illegal drugs in the vehicle of a person traveling north this week and were seen doing so by the occupant. The person lost quite a lot of time dealing with the issue, no other details available. Bottom line: Watch closely when your vehicle is being searched and make sure you get the phone number that has in the past been posted at every checkpoint to report problems. - Name Withheld By Request
Editors Note - Please all, we don't like reprinting rumors or second-hand information without verified details, especially when dealing with reports of crimes.. Take the time to vet these stories and get all the facts: "Who, What, Where, When, and How." It takes more time to do this but it avoids misinforming or needlessly alarming readers with incomplete or inaccurate information. - The Baja Western Onion
Road To La Pastora - The Road to la Pastora cannot wait for the promises of October paving. A group of people already started and paid for 20 loads of dirt (at 800 pesos each) that will be, starting March 26, dumped to fix the worst parts of the road until Batequitos. They need money to pay 20 more loads, 16,000 pesos (20 persons at 800 or 40 persons at 400 pesos?) Rodriguo at the Romex store is collecting and supervising the work, will take your name and give you a receipt. - Cat Chambaret, chambaretcat [- at -] mac.com, 612-102-8393

Above is an email that was was sent to me by James Black referring to our friend Laura Yaneth Felix who is a terrific cook. Many of you may remember her from the years that The Secret Garden/Secretos del Jardin was located on his property and hosted lots of delicious and enjoyable events. Laura still maintains her restaurant next door to James and eating there in the family style atmosphere is always a pleasure for me. Personally I can't wait to try Mustard Chicken.
