RIP, Kris Ladau

Kristine Ladau passed away the night of Monday, April 17, with her beloved dog Bennie by her side. Her death was due to complications from a number of serious and debilitating illnesses she had suffered for several years.

Most of us will remember her as an energetic and accomplished yoga teacher who taught at the Country Club and the Athleticlub San Carlos.

Many of us learned a great deal from her “What is Nutrition” column which appeared in the What’s Up San Carlos newsletter, and from her book on nutrition, “Be Healthy, Be Happy. Learn How to Eat to Live.” One of her greatest pleasures was cooking and serving fine meals for her friends.

She will be greatly missed.

A memorial will be scheduled at a time and place to be announced here on What’s Up San Carlos.

Fishing, Golfing & Birding Reports

Fishing Report

It’s been a tough year. We didn’t try too much in close as there is a lot of seaweed at times. It sure seems like the snapper and cabrilla should bite and some bonita and sierra should show up with the warmer water, but the bait isn’t around. We did lose something big just the other side of Doble. There are a few corvina swimming around. You won’t know if you never try.

The bottomfishing picked up for the calico Golden Spotted Sea Bass. We caught a lot of half-respectable fish, and then all of a sudden on Saturday we caught big 4 – 6 pound fish. We caught a mix of whitefish Salmon and small snappers. At least the clients were able to walk away with a good bag of fish.

On Sunday we started to see the marlin. The birds were working, but I think it was for centimeter-sized bait on the surface. There were impressive schools of bait fish that should have the marlin sticking around. Hopefully they will bring in the yellowtail again.

Some decent bites can be found if you work long and hard and go the distance. There are some yellowtail at San Pedro, and Tortuga was producing. The water is up to 74 degrees and clear not too far away. The tuna could show, but I think there might be a little wait to see if the dorado materialize.

We were treated to about a thousand plus Common Dolphin on Saturday working bait balls. There was a big Fin Whale cruising through them too at full speed. When I first heard them it sounded like a raging river from over a couple miles away and the horizon was white. The Orcas were spotted about ten days ago (watch a video). The sea life is on its way!

Birding Report

We had no birding outing this past week but will meet at Esterito Cafe on Thursday, April 20 at 7:30am. Jack Sieforth has been out and about while Al and I are gone and reports perched Red-tailed Hawks and the Western Tanagers have arrived for the summer. We will head out towards the Ojo de Agua ranch which is where he has had the best viewing.

The photo is of a Red-tailed Hawk taken by Jack Sieforth. It is a very common hawk seen here year round but impressive anyway. If you see a hawk flying in the sky and are able to see the belly band across the stomach area that is so clear in the photo, you are looking at a Red-tailed.

If you have any questions, you may contact me at maryltannehill@yahoo.com. Happy Birding!

Other News Around Town

SBPA is Calling All Cats!

We need your cat for the 2018 Calendar. Even if you’ve left San Carlos, your cat can be a calendar “girl” or “boy”! Just email a photo.

Lots of dog and puppy pictures have been submitted but we really, really need photos of rescued cats or kittens.

We do our best to alternate between dogs and cats for the calendar months, so please get out your camera. Keep a few things in mind as you “snap” your little fur babies.

* photos must be of a rescue animal
* set your phone or camera to high resolution
* don’t show any people or human body parts
* colorful backgrounds are great
* close ups are great
* horizontal layout is best if possible

Please email your photos to Barbara at barbarastrelke@gmail.com.

Rescate Receives First Donation Collected by CEA

Rescate is delighted to announce that we have just received our first transfer of funds collected by the CEA on our behalf.  The donation, which represents the funds collected by CEA from January through March of this year, was slightly over 42,000 pesos.

For many years the water company, CEA, has collected donations to support community services such as the fire department and the Red Cross. In January of this year, the 5 pesos per month collected on water bills in San Carlos was re-directed from the Red Cross to Rescate de San Carlos. The majority of these CEA accounts are held by Mexican nationals, who are also the most significant consumers of Rescate services.

Given that virtually all ambulance calls in San Carlos go to Rescate, the re-direction of funds makes sense. Rescate receives no government funding and operates entirely on donations and the fundraising efforts of the hard working Auxiliary. The Board of Directors, who are responsible for Rescate operations estimate that the funds raised through CEA donations will cover roughly 5% of the operating budget.

Rescate is very grateful for the donation from the residents of San Carlos and for CEA’s recognition of Rescate as the organization that provides the primary emergency medical response in San Carlos.

If you need Rescate, please remember to dial 226-0911 rather than 911.
