News and Events, Questions and Answers

Sax & Stories - Saturday, April 14, Les MacNeill will be playing his saxophone, signing his books "Red Tomatoes" and "The Long Way Home," and answering questions about the events that inspired them and his journey as a writer. 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m at El Tecolote Bookstore. Juarez at Hidalgo, Todos Santos.

A lifelong sailor, Les and his partner Marcia Stromsmoe sailed from Victoria to Mexico, the South Pacific, New Zealand and Australia. In 2001, while en route home, they were brutally attacked in Papau New Guinea. In "Red Tomatoes," Les describes suffering 8 skull fractures and extensive brain injury, his months of recovery and how he now copes. While reliving his journey, he wrote the sequel, "The Long Way Home." He and Marcia now live in Victoria and Todos Santos where he continues to run and make music. He hopes his story will inspire those who suffer from a brain injury and those who live with them. A share of the proceeds to go to the Palapa Society. - Kate Lewis, katemlewis [- at -] yahoo.com, El Tecolote, Todos Santos.

Pet Corner (Lost and Found pet articles will run for two weeks)

Let us know if you find or place your pet so we can remove your ad -

Can You Help? - As some of you may know, our Baja Western Onion editor, Debra Webster, is a big supporter of animal welfare and spay and neuter efforts both in Baja and in the US. After being involved in animal welfare projects for three years in Todos Santos, including Kitty Heaven and the spay/neuter clinics, Debra now volunteers her time at a local non-profit shelter, Animal Outreach of the Mother Lode, in Northern California. Animal Outreach provides low-cost/no-cost spay and neuter, veterinary care, and rehoming services for over 8,400 cats and dogs each year. Debra manages a "Barn Cats" program where she finds new homes for feral and semi-feral cats at local homes, farms, ranches and vineyards where they find "work" in helping to control rodent populations. Since it's inception, over 500 homeless cats have found a second chance through this program: www.MyBarnCats.com.

Now, over the next few months, Animal Outreach has a chance to receive a generous support donation provided by Rachael Ray through the ASPCA, and all it takes is a mouse click if you would like to help them. From now until Monday, April 16, your "votes" will help Animal Outreach move into the finals of the ASPCA Challenge. Anyone, living anywhere, can vote every day by visiting challenge.aspcapro.org/shelter/Animal%20Outreach%20of%20the%20Mother%20Lode and clicking on the green Vote Today! button. Every vote counts. More about the ASPCA Rachael Ray $100K Challenge here: challenge.aspcapro.org/about-the-100k-challenge. Thanks so much for your help. - Alan And Debra, Debra [- at -] MyBarnCats.com, 530-409-0132

Did You Lose Your German Shepard Mix Dog Near Punta Lobos? - About 6 p.m. on April 4, on the dirt road to Punta Lobos (just before the water treatment plant), there was a medium-sized German Shepard "mix" dog (looking lost and confused!) standing in the middle of the road. I have permission (with much cooperation given)to operate a feeding station at the plant for abandoned dogs. While setting out clean water and food, this dog approached - but not too closely. I was unable to determine male/female - but this dog has obviously been well cared for. He/she has beautiful eyes, a fluffy coat with black/tan color mix and a fluffy tail - and was VERY hungry.

It is a huge problem for any strange dog to pass by the houses on the last block before the open road to the beach in an attempt to "go home." There is a large pack of dogs that will intimidate and attack any stray dogs. If you have any idea who's dog this is, please e-mail or call - this dog needs your help! - Cindy Murray, cindyfenix [- at -] yahoo.com, 145-0666, Todos Santos

Bacero Needs A New Home - The owner of this dog died on the 4 lane by Home Depot 2 weeks ago. I have photos of him and he is beautiful. His name is Bacero and he is about 35 lbs. He is around 1+ year old or so. He needs to be neutered and that can be done at the shelter for free. He has no ticks or flees and is healthy. His color is black and white. Ask me for photos. The ideal place would be with a yard or on a ranch. He needs a new loving family. He is being foster cared for now. Please email or call Sharon Armstrong at 624-145-8073 and Cell, 624-113-3959 in Cabo. He is house trained and very smart. He is available for free. He would make someone a great companion, caboflygirl [- at -] gmail.com, Cabo San Lucas
