Found Yellow Labrador In Cerritos - Brody (the owner of shop on the way to Cerritos beach) found a male yellow labrador a couple of days ago, which is being kept at his shop.

If anyone know's the owner or wants to help finding him/her, please, spread the word. If it's your dog, you can go pick him up at Brody's. - Juan Pablo Solis, juanpablosolis [- at -] gmail.com, 6121776078

News From La Canada Del Diablo - Our commercial property could be your dream property. Invest now, before prices go up. 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 confidential. We're open to ideas. Will consider financing. 5% commission to anybody bring a buyer to the table.

Thank you to all who 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 specimens are processed. Vida Y Prosperidad Todos Santos AC has collected most of the money, but still needs donations to finish paying for purchase and installation. If you can help, please drop your donation at LA CANADA.
