Yes, I am behind again!! Not sick, just behind. So, check your inbox tomorrow for the catch-up edition. Sorry…….BPE Cheryl


Let’s get 2022 off to a clean start by recycling excess holiday packaging, along with the usual recyclables, at Baja’s Resort at East Cape on Thursday, January 6th, 9-11 a.m. – covid vaccinations required to enter the property.  Some types of wrapping paper can be recycled (does it crunch if squished?) but neither foil, glitter-decorated paper nor tissue paper can; these are often made from already recycled material and can’t be further processed.  We’re all trying to do the right thing in keeping our community and planet healthy but some stuff is simply trash and should be put into your own garbage, especially glass.

Please separate your crushed/rinsed plastics into 3 categories:  Milk and milky style containers, Clear plastics, Colored plastics and lids.  We also accept aluminum (no used foil), metals/tin & cardboard broken down and bundled.  Your $100 peso donation/household/month pays for transporting the sorted recyclables to La Paz.

Join us in keeping everyone safe by wearing a mask & social distancing while at the Recycling Center as the risk of covid contagion persists. www.eastcaperecycling.com/




06-Thu RECYCLE Los Barriles. See info above.
07-Fri Cancelled! Watch for next opening. Bookstore Hwy. 1


  1.  Hi everyone, I lost a couple surfboards on my the way from Conejo to Guerro Negro last night off of the top of my camper. One is a 5’6 Album twinsman  wrapped in black carbon fiber, in a blue FCS bag. The other was a 5’7 FireWire cymatic, in a white Dakine bag. If anyone sees them around or picked them up I’d be happy to pay a 6000 peso reward for them. Thanks. – nkcooper11@gmail.com
  2. Found floating in the ocean on Jan 3. Straw type hat….are you missing yours? Email me please…to describe and claim it!! Thanks – vjgjcotton@yahoo.com
  3. Found kite bar at north beach Tuesday. – emilycdale@me.com
  4. Lost my Duotone/North Click bar north of El Gecko on Tues 1/4. Should have my name on it, Peterman, and has 2 8″ line extensions on the outer lines. 6-pack of beer or Topo Chico to whoever turns it in. peterman.doug@gmail.com 
  5. Lost key, brass colored, on brown twine, labeled Malcolm, between chapitos express and Verdugos’s rv park. Thanks – 007drmikey@gmail.com

  7. lost swimming goggles in black pouch with lime green drawstring near foot of don pepe or nearby beach – richards6466@gmail.com


  1.   The boat & trailer that was stolen from Las Lomas was found by La Ribera Police on the way to Lighthouse.  Only Motor is missing…Honda 15HP. A Happy Ending.
  2. The Book Store sale scheduled for Friday January 7, 2022 is Cancelled due the Covid variant Omicron.  Omicron is very contagious and I have been informed by reliable sources here in Los Barriles that Omicron is rampant in our community.  Rather than risk someone contacting or spreading the virus via The Book Store we have made the difficult decision to Cancel the upcoming sale. Thank you for your patronage
  3. East Capers Magazine for February/March is in the works!   If you want to advertise, please contact me right away so I can reserve space.  To all our writers out there, please get the keys clicking and lets put out another great issue!  Deadline is Jan 17th to be in the Feb issue. Email at eastcapersmagazine@gmail.com
  4. Dated 1/1/22: Security Alert! We live out on Agua de la Costa. On Friday morning (Dec 31st) at 7:45 AM, somebody came through our beach access door and went into our unlocked truck and opened our garage door with the garage door opener. We heard some noise from our beach gate and came out, and evidently scared them away. They stole our garage door opener, a tool bag in the truck and a car jumper battery. They didn’t have time to make it into the garage to take more things. Pretty brazen to do this at 7:45 AM in broad daylight. We have changed the codes on our garage door and driveway gate so the stolen garage door opener is useless. We are now only using small garage door openers that attach to our keychain ….. And no longer leaving a garage remote in the truck. It also appears that we have to keep our truck locked at all times even in our driveway. Just giving everyone a heads up.

  5. I somewhat regret posting this but I need to. Recently we had a medical emergency and went to a certain hospital in San Jose. They attended well to my wife I will agree but when I asked what the cost for overnight cost would be I was shocked 20,000 dollars for non critical condition. Ask around before you go to the hospital you will dodge a huge (stratosphere) mistake. If you want to know which one you can email me. do your homework!!!!!! – butchandterrihazel@gmail.com
