¡Gracias a Ti - Gracias a Todos! - Saturday, August 31 marks the completion of our seventh year of publishing the Baja Western Onion. We're reminded once again to thank all of our supporters, advertisers and readers for your support since our beginning on September 01, 2006. What began as an effort to notify a few friends and family about the arrival of Hurricane John here, and then later as the storm passed northward through Loreto and Mulege, became the foundation and mission statement of the Baja Western Onion; to provide timely and useful community news for our area.

Also, this last week coincidentally marks our surpassing a readership of 3,800 subscribers. We could never have dreamed when we started that we would ever have such a large readership, and we hope that we'll continue to earn your respect and support as a trusted resource for useful community news in the years ahead. We could not have done this without your help and good wishes and we are sincerely grateful to all our readers. Again, ¡Gracias a Todos Tan Mucho! for making the Baja Western Onion possible. - Alan and Debra, The Baja Western Onion

News From La Canada Del Diablo -
Our friends and clients love La Canada. We all have friends who want to live in Todos Santos. We all know people who have thought about how they could do business in Todos Santos. We all know Todos Santos is evolving. The time is now to invest in the future of the new Todos Santos.

Our commercial property could be your dream property. Invest now, before the prices go up. The speculators and big box stores are circling. We would like to pass this opportunity on to someone with a vision for the future, but at the same time a concern for the town. Contact us for more information. All conversations will remain confidential. We are open to all ideas. We will consider financing. There is a 5% commission to anybody bring a buyer to the table. (How will you spend all that money?)

Thank you to the people who have donated clothing, household items and food to the rehabilitation center. There is an ongoing need for clothing, as there are always new residents joining the group. If you have donations, you can drop them off at LA CANADA, or take them directly to the center.

The town's public hospital has a new laboratory. Patients now can have blood work done free of charge. The only thing needed to open the laboratory, is climate control where the specimens are processed. The social service group VIDA Y PROSPERIDAD TODOS SANTOS AC has collected the majority of the money, but still need a few more donations to finish paying for the purchase and installation. If you can help, please drop your donation here at LA CANADA.

Thank you! OH, and one more thing ... if you are here this summer, come by and check out the final clearance sale. Still some great pieces, and incredible prices. - Barbara Perkins, bperkins0403 [- at -] gmail.com, www.lacanadadeldiablo.com, 612-140-0069
