Sometimes so much is going on in our little slice of paradise by the sea that we can’t address the many short subjects with proper attention in our blog. To handle the hodgepodge of dangling subject matter, we invented the Potpourri Page. Guaranteed to make you 46% smarter and 11% more likely to lead the conversation in a social gathering. Read on…
Donations from Sonoran Resorts Food Drive were delivered to Casa Hogar. As Jim Ringquist and his two sons pulled into the parking area of Puerto Peñasco’s Home for the Aged with a truck load of food items, their appreciation was expressed by the presence of the Sisters and residents alike who welcomed them with open arms and even helped unload the truck. “This was our most successful year since starting the drive 5 years ago”, said Jim.
Jason Stanford, former Pitcher with the Cleveland Indians, held a clinic for youngsters beginning their baseball careers on January 16th. He supplied nearly 100 kids with his new training aid called “Strikeout Strippz” which is so easy to use that those who use it can hardly believe how fast it improves their throwing form and accuracy. But more important, according to Jason, this simple to use product greatly reduces stress to vital muscles and joints which can extend the careers of everyone who uses it. Jason is the son of Dolores Vargas, a popular real estate agent in Puerto Peñasco. Learn more about this miraculous invention at www.perfectthrowusa.com.

Center for Equine Therapy Produces Miracles for the disabled children of poor families in Puerto Peñasco. You’ll hear more about this incredible organization in the near future, but we wanted to share what they are doing to improve the lives of children with a variety of afflictions, from autism to cerebral palsy. The seemingly simple act of sitting on a horse that is guided by trainers and following the lead of junior therapists has radically improved the lives of so many children and, consequently their families. All of this is made possible by one family. The parents are Lic. Aarón Armando Pérez Núñez and Lic. Claudia Lugo Gamez, both successful attorneys in our town, and their five children who devote their free time to helping with the therapy sessions each Thursday. Aarón and Claudia have formed a nonprofit association to raise and distribute funds for the expenses and upkeep of nine horses and stables to keep this all-important therapy going. If you would like to learn more about the therapeutic benefits of equine therapy, please email Aarón or Claudia at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. Their kids will translate the emails to Spanish and you’ll get a response back very quickly.
