GOOD NEWS! Although a little longer than anticipated, LOS BARRILES' MAYOR RAMIRO IS UNDERWAY! The ROAD GRADER is expected to arrive tomorrow, Wednesday, and begin work on scraping the rutted dirt roads in Los Barriles, especially the arroyos - our rattling cars and our jarring teeth will be thankful for this important road maintenance. Delegado Ramiro said he will need and appreciate any 'Diesel Donations' that dirt road users feel inclined to assist him with. Donations can be dropped to the East Cape Casas & RV Resort on Main Street across from the Modelorama or to the Delegation Building. As little as $20 pesos to $200 pesos will be appreciated and help assure that our diesel budget for the future will keep the tanks full on the road Grader. TOPE NEWS! With thanks to those folks that donated to the 'TOPE REPLACEMENT FUND', Delegado Ramiro has his crew preparing next week to remove the existing car killing topes with the best topes in Southern Baja, just behind those in San Bartolo. The new ones will allow cars to easily roll over top of them and will also have aisles on each side of the street to accommodate bike tires. These committed community folks donated: Megan/Ian, Mengia/Henry, Tehroma/Javier, John/Laura, Paul/Marypaul, Alex/Elena, Jerry/Jean, Barbour/Granger, Theresa/Shaun, Connors. Remember to be patient while the city streets are improved. Thanks all!
