News and Events, Questions and Answers

Please Do Not Burn - Several mornings during the past couple of weeks, the skies of Todos Santos, and especially the Las Tunas area, were filled with smoke from the burning of trash, etc. The heavy smoke not only was unsightly, but also caused serious breathing problems for those with allergies and lung conditions. In addition, some residents were extremely concerned because the fires became large and were close to buildings and very dry brush. Please know that burning trash, plastics, construction materials and garden waste is a serious health, environmental and safety concern.

If you need to have your trash picked up and taken to the dump, please consider using one of several individuals who do this as a business for a reasonable price. For example, Felipe Jiminez (612-157-8140), Ira Nevius (612-182-4334), and Sergio Rizera (624-126-1633) can provide this service.

In addition, the use of a "chipper" can turn wood and debris into mulch for gardens. If anyone knows of where a "chipper" can be borrowed or rented, please put a notice in the Baja Western Onion. Thank you for your consideration. - Name Withheld By Request
More information on the toxic effects of buring trash can be found here: www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/32060.html - Editor

One of the workers at cafe La Esquina needs a wheelchair for Her son as soon as posible. if you have one or can find one, please bring it to Cafe La Esquina in Todos Santos. hopfully it will be for a short period of time...

Register To Vote Online - For those of us that are full timers down here... Here is a site to register to vote if you will not be in the US for elections. With this site some states allow for electronic registering and requesting absentee ballots. Others require old school mailing so right now is a good time to put this into action . this site is for all states all Americans. Some states require this every year. http://www.fvap.gov/ - Dean DeVolpi, dean [- at -] la-ventana.com, www.fvap.gov/ , United States

Legal Notice To Subscribers Of Hughesnet Satellite Internet Services - If you subscribed to a HughesNet Satellite Internet Service anytime between May 15, 2005 and March 2, 2012 you may be eligible to receive a $5 or $40 payment from a class action settlement. The class action lawsuit, known as Walter v. Hughes Communications, alleges, in connection with Hughes’ satellite-based internet access service called HughesNet, that:
  1. Hughes’ advertised download, upload and other internet speeds and Hughes’ disclosures regarding its Fair Access Policy were misleading, and

  2. the fees charged to subscribers when they cancelled their service before the end of their contract (“early termination fees”) violated the law.
Details about the settlement, whether you qualify, and how to apply for a refund can be seen here: www.satelliteinternetsettlement.com/CaseInfo.aspx?pas=SatelliteInternetSettlement - Alan Thompson, Baja Satellite, alan [- at -] BajaSatellite.com,

Missing The 5K Run? - Did you miss the 5K run this past January? If so, you're not alone. The Palapa Society is looking for a committed race director to help us revive this important and fun community event. The 5K has served as the main funding source for providing medical assistance to children in need. I have heard from two committed "helpers", but need a race director to make this event happen. If you are interested and can make the commitment, please contact me at 145-0821. - Tim Doyle, timsudoyle [- at -] hotmail.com, 145-0821

Doggy Dentist? - Hey dear community, does anyone know of a veterinary that can save a broken doggy canine tooth, or can do a proper extraction, its urgent! Thanks! - Emilia, organicminded [- at -] yahoo.com, 612 136 5986

RE: Taking Support Dogs On Airplanes - I spoke with United Airlines last Sunday, and they said the new rules, promulgated by the Mexican Government on May 1 for immediate effect, are that no in-cabin dogs OTHER than service dogs are permitted on flights into or out of Mexico. And, the credentials that United insists on for the dog to travel are a letter from a mental health professional that has all the following info (this is a draft of the letter to be faxed to and verified by UA that the agent dictated to me, mas o menos):
"[passenger name] has a mental health disability related to the DSM IV, and the [weight of animal] well behaved [breed or description of animal] named [name of animal on papers] that accompanies [passenger name] is necessary for [passenger's name] mental health and treatment. I am a licensed mental health professional and [passenger name] is under my care. I hold the [mental health credential name] credential from the [issuing authority]. My professional license number is [license number], and was issued [issue date]."
I wonder if this regulation and the new one from a year ago requiring parasite and other tests before our dog can fly (which tests are somewhat expensive to get in the US) are the work of some animal hating bureaucrat who has come to a position of power in the D.F. Or, perhaps airlines have been having problems with totally inappropriate animals being carried in the cabin.

Now, the goofy part of all this is that Alaska, whose flight to LAX we took yesterday from La Paz, with massive amounts of paper at the ready, didn't seem to care about any of this at the airport, and the agent I spoke to on the phone had never heard of the new rule, as they have no policy to collect, verify, and file such letters. His measured response was 'Huh?' So the moral of this story may be to take Alaska/Horizon from La Paz, or take the bus. Best of British Luck to you all. - Tom Gafford.

No Photo Appeared With Your Announcement? - If you submitted a photo with your announcement and it wasn't included, here's why:
  • The photo was too big. Photos need to be no larger than 250 X 250 pixels (about 3.5"), otherwise they take up too much space.
  • The link was bad. All links need to end in .JPG, .JPEG, .GIF, or .PNG or they will not display. Links that end in .HTM, .HTML, or a bunch of numbers won't work.
  • The photo's file size was too large. All photos need to be under 30 KiloBytes in file size, otherwise they take too long to load.
We don't have time to fix too-large photos or bad links so we delete them. We've posted a detailed tutorial online explaining how to correctly add photos to your announcement. You can find it here: www.bajawesternonion.com/how-to-post-photos-with-your-ad-or-article.asp

Of course, if this is too much for you, we can resize, upload and host your photo on the Baja Western Onion web site for only $5.00 US per photo. Be sure to let us know in the "Additional Comments" box when you submit an announcement. Then send the photo by Email to Moderator [- at -] bajawesternonion.com. Be sure to reference your announcement so we know which image goes with which announcement. Payment can be made to Our PayPal account at: Advertising [- at -] bajawesternonion.com. - The Baja Western Onion, The Baja Western Onion

The Best Kept Secret Around - Local Wine Made In Todos Santos - After years of travel, Canadians Zach and Kristianna have finally mastered their fermented art. Come share history in the making as we celebrate our first ever public sneak-peak wine release! Meet the winemaker and indulge in his dreams, listen to the charming melodies of his partner in crime and the artist behind the label, and the two of them will delight your palate, be it with dry, off-dry, rose or even dessert style wines, all fresh from the tank! (Actually, they’re still in there!) Hear the tales of our travels and the plans for a sustainable off-grid vineyard, and answer the question everyone keeps asking us, “What is this delicious wine made out of?” It’s a ‘wine-wine’ situation!

So as we 'bottle down' for the Grand Opening at Gastrovino 2012, gather up your one-and-only's and meet us for a sneak peek at what's in store. Still need a reason to drink? Every taster will be entered in an 8pm draw for a free pass to Gastrovino 2012. We’ll see you at the Bodega, Monday the 14th, 5-8pm, and taste wines with as much personality as the community in which they were made.

Kudos For Laura's Secret Garden Restaurant -
I attended the special Mothers Day meal at Secrets of the Garden and just want to let our community know that our table of 8 had the best that Todos Santos has to offer in Mexican food, no doubt. We all looked at our 90 ps plates and said we will definitely be taking half of this home. When we left no one had anything on their plates. Chile Relleno, Enchilada, Taco Dorado, Rice, and the best beans ever. The chile relleno is the best in town no ? Thank you Laura and Gus for a wonderful evening. - merlo4u [- at -] earthlink.net

"Wow!" is a barely a good start to describe the Mothers Day Special that Laura from the Secret Graden restaurant put on tonight for those of us who were lucky enough to be there. It was absolutely one of the best meals I've ever had in Mexico. For 90 pesos we got a huge plate of the most tasty treats- Chile Relleno, Enchilada, 2 Taco Dorado, Rice, and the best beans with incredable home made hot sauce ever. We need to support local folks restuarant owners like Laura better, This is a truly a treasure that if more folks tried it they would realize what they have missed. Just past Mercado sol 2 down the hill on your left, look for the surfboard sign. - Larry Crowson, todoslarry [- at -] gmail.com

Jill Casty's Show At La Encantada, La Paz - Thank you to all who were able to come to the opening of my show last Saturday evening.

To all who weren’t able to make the opening night – the show will be at La Encantada in La Paz until mid-May. I’ll be happy to meet you there if you like, or go and see it on your own and be in touch.

Lila and friends did a beautiful job of hanging my work. The glass and metal sculptures, the paintings and the pendants. It’s wonderful to see all the work so well displayed and in such a lovely setting. La Encantada is open every evening from 5 pm - ? The garden is lovely and a most congenial place to sit, wine, dine, visit, relax etc.

Quote of the Day: " You can't get rid of evil. We can't, and I feel that so intensely. All the idiots that keep coming into the world and wrecking people's lives. And it is such an abundance of idiocy that you lose courage, okay? That you lose hope — I don't want to lose hope. " ~ Maurice Sendak in a 2004 interview with Bill Moyers
