Sad News - A traditional and very old beach access path has been fenced and barbed/wired in Las Tunas. The access is at the end of Camino International where it meets the dunes. There seems to be no immediate plans to build as the lot now has a For Sale sign on it. This access has been around since at least Camino Internacional was built in the latter 1990s. It is truly sad to lose it to development.
A group has been formed to explore the options concerning this and other closures in the future. I hope you will please write and offer your support to reverse or at least stem these type of closures. Thank you, Mark Thompson, markthompson1101gmail [- at -] aol.com, Todos Santos

Warning To Women In Todos Santos - I want to inform the community that the masked man with a machete who threatened me with rape and murder on Sat 13th is still at large. The severity of my assault was not handled professionally by the Policia Ministerio in Todos Santos. With the tremendous support of my community I have actively searched for the sources which can bring justice, not just for me but for the next woman who seeks help. Thank you to Daphna, Gloria, Jenny, Vicky, Sergio, our delegado Arturo Villalobos and the American Consulate for stepping in to help me. Thank you to my neighbors for coming together to search for the assailant. And my biggest thanks goes to Steve who has given me unwavering support, thru the tough stuff of emotional healing and then the drudgery of bureaucratic paper work. And let me tell you, Steve and I have hit the pavement trying to understand the system! This is the tip of the iceberg! But let’s start with this:
If assaulted, raped, threatened physically do not wait to make the denuncia! I was not informed of this and I was told the office here in Todos Santos is closed on the weekend and hence had to wait untill Monday to do the official denuncia. Now I know what to do: Go to La Paz that day to make the denuncia or to S.A.M.M., if raped or other domestic violence. The denuncia is your statement recalling the details of the assault or rape or robbery. The denuncia enables any suspects to be held. Otherwise, the policia ministerio will just release any suspects; basically they served as a taxi service for the criminal, which is what happened to the suspect apprehended in my case. The ministerio publico will give you an official paper with your Averiguacion Previa number on it. This is your case number. Do not let anyone tell you to wait till Monday to make the Denuncia. Get it done right away even if the office in Todos Santos is closed. I have Much more to tell. But for now, a group of concerned citizens and I are putting together a list of agencies for legal help which will be posted later when completed. - Jennifer Power
