Publisher's Note - Just a couple of reminders; The "Bulletin Board" format of the Baja Western Onion doesn't work very well for reprinting long articles, especially copies of articles that can be found elsewhere (i.e. newspapers or other web sites). Also, we especially don't like to reprint political or controversial news or articles that spark a debate, present only one side in a dispute, or quote third parties without their knowledge or consent. We don't have resources to verify the accuracy of these kinds or articles, and we also don't want to appear to be "taking sides" in some issue (the taxi dispute in Cabo, for example).
There are other types of publications and web sites (Gringo Gazette, El Calendario, Baja Nomad, etc,) that are better formats for these kinds of news articles. If you have something you feel is appropriate and newsworthy to our readers, please send a brief paragraph and a link to the article rather than submitting a copy of the article itself. As always, we can't guarantee inclusion.
Also, if you need to update an article or ad you previously submitted, please resubmit the entire article or ad through the web site rather than sending us just the updated information. Also, remember to include all the essential details; "Who, What, Where, When, and How." Don't worry, we only use the last version submitted. Thanks for your help. - Alan

Pay For P/u To New Mexico - I'd happily pay for labor, gas, mileage for anyone (with references) who might be driving a P/U, from Todos to Jemez Springs, Northern New Mexico. I need a load of personal possessions, mattress, chairs, tables, small chests, mirrors, etc. brought up. The furniture could be ready for pick-up in Todos Santos on short notice. Someone would be there to help load. There is no problem bringing personal furniture across the border. I need to know ASAP although delivery wouldn't have to be until mid-Oct or before.

Buddy and Marty found their way back home to Wendy's house just as we were getting ready to send out this issue of the Baja Western Onion. Wendy had just sent us an e mail with the photos you see here, and we had just made the connection with Katie's ad and called Wendy. Strangely, Marty and Buddy walked into Wendy's house right at that moment!
Marty and Buddy asked us to remind everyone that many pets do not do well with fireworks, thunder and lightning storms. Here are some tips to keep your pet safe and possibly prevent their running away:
