Annual Stars & Stripes Festival - Thursday, June 28 thru Sunday, July 01, don't miss this World-class fishing tournament, first-class golf, major-headliner music festival with music by the Doobie Brothers, and live auction benefitting children's charities. Also offered are Zip-line tours and Quad-runner rides with Wild Canyon Adventures. Events will be centered at the Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort, Cabo San Lucas.

About Stars & Stripes: Started in 1996 by Dick Gebhard, then a board member of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County, Stars and Stripes has grown from a new idea by a creative visionary, to one of the most significant and innovative charity fundraisers in the country. The event has donated over $10 million to Southern California charities over its 15-year history and over the past three years has expanded its list of beneficiaries which this year includes: Orangewood Children’s Foundation, Boy Scouts of Los Angeles, Miracles for Kids and most recently, Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA OC).

Additionally, Stars & Stripes gives back to communities in the Cabo San Lucas area, this year, monies raised will also benefit Mexico’s Green Scholarship Program. Affectionately known as "The Feel Good Tournament," Stars and Stripes seeks to be an effective charity fundraiser which creates lasting memories for both the organizations it assists and those participating in the event each year. - christi.starsandstripes [- at -] gmail.com, (949) 280-4742, www.starsandstripestournament.com/

G20 Summit Information Corrections - Lic. Julio Camarena Villaseñor, G20 Chancellor and the SRE's Oficial Mayor, was interviewed (bilingual) Sunday June 3 on Cabo Mil's Los Cabos Now and made a specific point of refuting/correcting the widely-circulated information on the Lifestyle Villas blog, and reprinted in the June 5 edition of the Baja Western Onion. He was particularly concerned regarding inaccurate dates, incomplete or distorted information, and hyperbole regarding beach closures.

The Camarena interview is available as a podcast at www.cabomil.com.mx - from the homepage go to the podcast page, choose June 3 from the calendar and the time 1900 / 1930. There is a slider bar to advance the podcast. (As far as I know, the interview is not yet on the main podcast list.). There is also important information in the podcast missing from the list, especially regarding the high security polygon from the Convention Center through to and along Paseo San Jose, San Jose's beachfront boulevard.

Clarifications from the interview (Courtesy Baja Tips Weekly):
  1. The toll road will be closed from the 15th – 19th of June. This will be open only to those transporting delegations. Anyone who needs to go to the airport will have to use the old route through San Jose Del Cabo.
  2. Some of the beach accesses in front of the hotels where the government heads will be staying will be restricted from the 15th – 20th of June. Those hotels are One and Only Palmilla, Marquis, Fiesta Americana, Sheraton, Ventanas, Esperanza, and Westin.
  3. Other locations with heightened security will be the Hilton, headquarters for the B20 (Businesses) and the Cabo San Lucas Cultural Pavillion where the NGO’s will be convening as well as scheduled concerts and performances. From June 15th-20th, during the evenings, there will be various events, concerts, movie screenings, ballet & exhibits at the Cultural Pavilion located in down town Cabo. All functions are open to the public & free.
  4. Highest concentration of Security will be present on June 17,18, and 19, from the new Convention Center off the airport toll road in San Jose to the area around Hotel Barcelo, where the G20 headquarters is located, and around Hotel El Faro, the International Press Center.
  5. All names of staff working at any of the resorts or who supply the hotels, need to fill out an accreditation form available at the Accreditation Center at Hotel Mayan, or will not be allowed onto the premises. You must carry the accreditation on you at all times. This does not apply to condominiums in those areas.
  6. There will be maritime restrictions around the 7 hotels mentioned above, as well as Barcelo and El Faro. No maritime restrictions in Cabo San Lucas harbor. No private planes will be allowed to land in SJD, but be directed to land in CSL airport instead.
  7. All schools, hospitals & regular businesses will remain open, unless a decision is made by the actual institution
  8. This means that the popular snorkeling spots like Santa Maria, Chileno Bay & surf spots like El Tule, Acapulquito, the Rock & Zippers will not be accessible from the 15th until the 20th
  9. Be prepared to wait in traffic, so leave at least 30-45 min before your meetings or appointments, there will possibly be various check points along the highway.

Thank Heaven For St. Luke´s! - Recently I was admitted to St. Luke´s Clinic suffering from severe pneumonia that hadn´t responded to the treatment I was getting from the respiratory specialist I was seeing in La Paz. We decided to take advantage of their $100 peso consult they offer every Monday & Thursday and received a very thorough examination by Dr. Jorge Diaz, who recommended I be hospitalized on site so that I could be treated intravenously. The doctors, nurses and staff are very professional and caring and really want to help get you well. They have lab and x-ray services on site so test results were available rapidly to help with my treatment. The cost of the hospitalization, lab work, x-rays, medical services was reasonable and fair. I feel very fortunate that we have such a fine facility at our disposal right here in Todos Santos and will not hesitate to return for consults or hospitalization if needed in the future. - Don Mitchell, kiwimay1999 [- at -] yahoo.com, Todos Santos

Pets In The Cabin Of Alaska Airlines Planes (Courtesy Baja Pony Express) - There is a new law that took affect on June 1 that states: no "in-cabin pets" on any flights into and out of Mexico. I know this for a fact because American Airlines would not let my friends fly with the cat that they had made reservations for when they left last week and the same thing happened to my daughter flying out yesterday with her small dog on Alaska Airlines. At least Alaska called us yesterday morning and gave us a heads up about the hard kennel. Animals will only be able to travel in the hold in a Hard-sided kennel into and out of Mexico in the future. - Sheila Hughes
I called the 800 number given for Alaska earlier this afternoon on LPG and talked to 3 different people who confirmed that their policy had just changed. However, none of them could provide hard evidence that there is an actual Mexican law or official Directive from the Mexican gov't to support their claim. According to an article on this subject which I posted a couple of weeks ago, this so-called "new rule" is actually just a misinterpretation of a 2007 directive from the Mexican government which restricts in-cabin pets on Domestic air travel only (i.e. flights on Mexican airlines within Mexico): yapamerida.blogspot.mx/2012/05/new-united-continental-airline-pet.html

The contact info I have for Alaska/Horizon is as follows: Alaska Airlines, P.O. Box 68900, Seattle, WA 98168, 206-433-3200; Horizon Air, P.O. Box 68977, Seattle, WA 98168, 206-241-6757; Alaska Airlines Customer Care: 1-800-654-5669.

IRS Is Getting Serious - Senate Bill Would Revoke Passports of Tax Delinquents, according to Michael Cohn of Accounting Today. The Senate has unanimously approved a provision to a highway transportation bill that would revoke the passports of people with seriously delinquent tax debts.

The provision, which was part of a larger amendment by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., to the Senate version of a surface transportation bill, was approved by unanimous consent last Tuesday. The amendment would allow the State Department to deny, revoke or limit a passport for any individual whom the Internal Revenue Service has certified as having a “seriously delinquent tax debt” in excess of $50,000. The amount would be adjusted for inflation in future years.

A seriously delinquent tax debt would be one for which a notice of a federal tax lien or a notice of a levy has been filed. However, there is an exception when the debt is being paid in a timely manner under an agreement with the IRS, or if collection on the debt has been suspended because of a collection due process hearing or other relief has been requested or is pending. - Paul Jubb, pilothere [- at -] pauljubb.com, www.gringotax.com, 916.363.4025

Help Save A Starving Dog - Courtesy Baja Pony Express - When traveling north (or south) we all see the starving homeless dogs along the road. Especially around San Quintin and the towns north. So, if you see a dog in distress and can stop safely, please call one of these groups and get transporting directions, instead of leaving them to starve and die on the road side. To help you with your rescue, have an old blanket, kibbles, water bowl and a loop collar leash in your car. If you are not comfortable transporting them, even offering them food will help.

If You See An Animal In Distress, Call: The Baja Animal Sanctuary, near Rosarito, 22 miles south of the San Ysidro border 619-786-7928 www.BajaAnimalSanctuary.org. C.A.R.E in the Punta Banda area, 1/2 hour south of Ensenada. 626 145 0484 www.carebaja.org. Please print these numbers and carry them with you. Together we can make a change. - ALMA Humanitaria, A.C., www.almacares.com The Baja Western Onion

Quote of the Day: " If we listened to our intellect, we'd never have a love affair. We'd never have a friendship. We'd never go into business, because we'd be cynical. Well, that's nonsense. You've got to jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down. " ~ Ray Bradbury
