These petitions began circulating as a follow up to a formal request made by ACTS and are comprised of signatures obtained in one week by citizens in the Todos Santos, Pescadero and surrounding areas. Representative Gloria Santoyo Ruenitz asked the governor for his support in three particular areas: One, crime prevention; Two, facilitating the process of the demanda and Three, criminal justice.

Standing next to the Governor were Arturo Martinez Villalobos, Delegado of Todos Santos and Yamil Arreola Leal, Police Commissioner.

Those are just some suggestions, what ever you can share will be gladly received.

The Weekender is also organizing a toy drive for children living in the ranches. A small wrapped toy, marked Niño, Niña or Bebe, can be dropped off here at La Canada. Also bags of wrapped candies, and oranges would be great to fill the pinatas for the children's Christmas party. If you have any questions, give us a call or stop by.

A Thank You Note From Tim Lang - As 2012 comes to a close, I wanted to share my sincere thank you to our community for supporting my music and letting me survive doing something I love to do. Special thanks to all the musicians I’ve played with this year, musicians that make me sound better than I am and renew my appreciation for this gift called music. I think old Stravinsky got it right, "I haven't understood a bar of music in my life, but I've felt it." See you in 2013! - Tim, tim [- at -] timlang.net, http://www.timlang.net, Baja California Sur
