San Miguel Homeowners

For those who were not at San Miguel for Year’s Eve and New

Years Day, the village experienced a failure of the electrical system and

loss of power on New Year’s Eve at approx... 7:00 & 11:30 p.m. either the

transformer or wiring at the transformer blew and the village lost power.

Power was out until New Year’s Day when a crew from CFE came out and

was able to restore power by about 2:00 p.m. Unfortunately, when they powered

up there was a surge which resulted in many electrical devices and appliances

throughout the village being disabled. (Why the CFE crew didn’t warn homeowners to

disconnect/unplug all electrical devices before they powered up is not known)

Many San Miguel residents lost the use of electronics and appliances. The

office is receiving e-mails from affected homeowners since the surge. If you

have electronics that have been affected by this occurrence please notify the

San Miguel office. Now, please consider the following….



It has now been two years since the homeowners meeting held at San Miguel

where we were told that our electrical project had been approved by CFE,

subject to the mapping of the new electrical infrastructure. This survey has

been completed and paid for by San Miguel in early 2015. This final

step would supposedly result in San Miguel (the Robertsons) being allowed

to grant CFE a legal right-of-way (Servidumbre) to come on the pro-

perty to connect electric service. Now two years later we still don’t have our

meters and we are still dependant on an old, deteriorating, obsolete system,

not to mention that it is undependable and dangerous. All the while our new

meter boxes and infrastructure that we paid for sits unused and rotting.

Also, San Miguel is paying at a higher rate than the rate that an individual

would pay so our monthly bills from San Miguel are way too high. So what’s

the hang-up? For months now we have been told that there is a title document

that San Miguel must furnish to prove that the Robersons own the property.

An attorney is supposedly working on this.



Assuming that at least some of you are as pissed as I am about the status of the electrical project I recommend the following:

(1)If you have experienced damaged or disabled electrical devices and/or appliances due to the New Year’s power surge, let Lupita know the extent of your loss, ASAP. (villadesanmiguel@hotmail.com) CC me as well. ThePattillos@Cox.net

(2)While you’re at it, ask her what the delay is in getting CFE to connect San Miguel and allow individual meters.

(3) I would like to have a meeting with the CFE official in charge of our project as well as Lupita, Engineer Alberto Loiza and two or three San Miguel Homeowners before the end of the month to discuss our situation and get some answers.


I cannot fight this battle by myself. I need the participation and commitment of all homeowners who have a stake in this. Nothing is going to get done until we take action.

Happy New Year! Bob

Memorial Day tribute for long term loving resident

Comments:

My family, and my pups, are in mourning. It is one month since Misty, my oldest, 13 1/2 years went to the Rainbow Bridge. She had been viciously attacked, late, the night before, 5-29-16, by two neighbor dogs who barged into our patio, and living room, with teeth bared. She was very torn apart. She died in surgery the next morning.

I do not know why she decided to go after them, as she was so little, and they so big. It was not natural for her, but she was trying to protect me. It was the third time that these dogs had tried to attack me on my sofa.

The owners deny this happened, but Misty came back, destroyed, minutes after these dogs had been in our patio, and inside our door with teeth bared.

Misty, yes, was old, but healthy, and had a few more years to enjoy San Miguel. We do miss her so much. A life destroyed- too soon. RIP, dear Misty.

Uber Announces New Service to Mexico

Comments:

Crossing borders: Uber takes San Diego riders to Mexico
Company cruises through busiest U.S. border, but only goes one way.
By Jennifer Van Grove | 11 a.m. March 17, 2016

The ride-hail company is launching its first truly international product, letting passengers cross into Tijuana from the San Ysidro border. Eric Risberg, AP



Your next trip to Mexico could be just a push of a button away.



On Friday, Uber will launch Passport, its first cross-border service, offering one-way transportation from San Diego across the San Ysidro border to anywhere in the northern Baja California region, which extends as far south as Ensenada and as far east as Mexicali. The new service offers travelers an alternative to buses, commercial cabs or simply walking across the border.



"It's very exciting for us because there are a lot of places where we could have launched a cross-border product, but we recognize the importance of the largest border crossing in the world and the unique relationship between San Diego and Tijuana," said Christopher Ballard, general manager for Uber in Southern California. "These are cities whose families, cultures and economies are closely linked."



The cross-border trips are only available through Uber's black car option, which costs more than UberX rides but all participating drivers will be commercially licensed and properly insured.



Passport riders can expect to pay a $20 convenience fee on top of per-mile and per-minute rates, in part to make the trek worthwhile for drivers. A trip from downtown San Diego to the Tijuana airport, for instance, will cost around $100, whereas a ride from Pacific Beach to Rosarito might run around $160. Fares can be split between up to four passengers.




The program is designed to ease transportation for a swath of locals already commuting between the two nations. Roughly 50,000 people have historically taken an Uber ride from the San Diego area to the border.



"We saw that over the course of a month that there were multiple trips beginning and ending on both sides of the border," said Ballard. "People were organically choosing Uber to go from San Diego to the Tijuana border and vice versa."




Before Passport, a passenger would need to end an Uber ride in the U.S., cross the border on foot and then e-hail an Uber pickup in Tijuana, where the company also operates.



And, in fact, the stop-and-get-out process must still be repeated in reverse. Passport may offer commuters a potentially easier way to get to Mexico - but it offers no uninterrupted way to get back because the service is limited to southbound crossings.



Passport riders will need appropriate documentation, such as a passport for U.S. citizens.



Although the service won't remove border-crossing obstacles, city leaders are optimistic that Passport can strengthen the ties between San Diego and Tijuana, already considered sister cities.



"Our economies are linked. Our businesses are linked. Yet our infrastructure isn't," said Paola Avila, vice president of international business affairs for the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce.



"We depend on a reliable workforce that can get to work every day," she said. "This is an affordable option that increases efficiency and reduces commute time. And companies might look at including (Passport) as an employee benefit."



Beyond assisting the more than 70,000 workers already crossing between San Diego and Tijuana each day, Avila expects Passport to serve as a boon for tourism. San Diegans, she said, may be more inclined to shop and dine in Tijuana, or visit destinations such as the Valle de Guadalupe wine country, if they know they can rely on the familiar brand name of Uber to get around.



Uber may not offer a northbound border-crossing option, but those who visit Baja California can continue to electronically hail rides in and around the region just as they would stateside, despite questions of legality.




"App-enabled transportation is not contemplated in current regulations in either the city of Tijuana or Baja California," Ballard said. "The team is working with government authorities on modern regulations."



The company also recently launched a new option in Tijuana to connect English-speaking riders with English-speaking UberX drivers, which should help ease the transition for Americans.



There is, at least, one potential downside to the program. If overly successful in boosting cross-border travel, Uber's Passport service could contribute to already lengthy northbound wait times, which have been on the rise despite the ongoing expansion of San Ysidro's Port of Entry.



Presumably, more people entering Mexico will equate to more people returning to the U.S., where wait times range from a few minutes to several hours depending on the time of day and day of the week. General pedestrians and vehicles not approved for either the expedited Sentri or Ready Lane programs typically endure the longest delays.




"If we look at current patterns, these people are already going to Mexico," Ballard said. "We're just facilitating a way where it's easier."
