Pablito: December 4, 1930 – March 12, 2013 - My friend Paul Shortell died on Tuesday of this week after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s. He was everything a friend should be, honest, empathetic, charitable and more. Paul had a keen since of humor and was incredibly smart. His love of the ocean led him to the Navy and the Merchant Marines Academy. After spending most of his life on the sea his knowledge of the ocean and the stars was amazing. He went on to work with The Rand Corp. and was involved in the early development of computers and programming and after retirement did private consultations.

Paul and his wife Mary moved here 15 years ago and were instantly involved in the community. They both spent many years organizing fundraisers and events for CAM, a school for severely handicapped and special needs children. Paul was also actively involved with the bomberos trying to get equipment and funding. He was well known by the Mexican community; they nicknamed him “Pablito”.

I last saw him several years ago in Los Angeles where Mary had arranged for him to be in a full care facility. I knew Paul didn’t recognize me but he was sly enough to try and make me think he did. It was sad to say goodbye. Our thoughts go out to Mary. - Michael Cope

Bombero Support - The most recent fire was terrible, but could have been much worse. We are lucky that our valiant bomberos were here for us. Let's make sure that they have the equipment they need to fight fires safely and effectively. The Palapa Society is once again soliciting funds to support this essential service. Checks should be made out to Palapa Society of Todos Santos, A.C. Be sure to indicate that the money is to be used for bombero support. Checks or cash can be given to Hal Butler, Erick Ochoa, or Tim Doyle. - Tim Doyle, timsudoyle [- at -] hotmail.com, 145-0821, Todos Santos

Still Time To Join The Fun - The spay and neuter clinic is a week away and we can use a little help. It is really a wonderful thing to watch these fabulous vets in action and see our Mexican hosts bringing in their much-loved pets. Please let us know if you are available to lend a hand.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday, March 21-23, morning or afternoon shift 8:30 to 12:30 or 1:00 to 5:00. We always need help at the end of the day as well - 4:00 to 6:00.

And the vets and volunteers get thirsty and need energy - fruit juice and soda are most welcome. We no longer want little bottles of water - we will use a garafon with cups to cut down our impact on the environment. Snacks and treats are welcome - fruit, nuts, cookies - to keep up the energy. We have wonderful community members bringing lunch each day. Gracias!! - Maryann, maryanndoug [- at -] gmail.com

Tracy Durland Sings Songs Of Love - This Saturday Night At Cafelix At 7pm. Viva El Amor!, originally scheduled to coincide with Valentine's Day but postponed because of the Art Festival, will take place this Saturday night. This evening celebrating Love with timeless American Jazz and beloved Clasicas Romanticas of Mexico will give us another opportunity to experience the magic of romance through music from both sides of the border. The great American classic, My Funny Valentine, ends with the line, "each day is Valentine's Day". Let's make this Saturday, March 16, another reminder of that! Tracy only performs a few times each year (next event will be in May for Mother's Day!) so be sure to take this opportunity to experience the enchantment of beloved tunes. Dress warmly. It may be chilly but the music will warm your heart!
