The results of the print edition were stronger; Of 84 respondents, 81 responded in favor of financial aid benefits for single mothers; only three of those surveyed disagreed. It is should be mentioned 100% of the women who answered were in favor of support arguing that in this region there is a high rate of single mothers who have been abandoned by their husbands.

Ensenada BC (El Vigía, Sergio Castillo, 5/8/11) - A raging fire generated considerable damage to three houses and a mechanical workshop, located in colonia Reacomodo Lomitas.The incident happened yesterday around 2:30 p.m. and caused intense mobilization of paramedics, rescuers, municipal police officers and firefighters who took about two hours to suffocate the fire because of the rugged area. It was reported one of the houses and the business suffered total losses. The other two homes were only partially damaged because of the smoke and intense flames. The surrounding area was also affected by the fire. There were no injuries but, news of the recent family who died in Tuesday’s fire at "Picosita", resulted in at least two people suffering attacks of nerves. They received medical attention by Mexican Red Cross paramedics. The flames were stifled by about 10 firefighters who arrived in three fire trucks. Two of them needed water recharging because the intensity of the fire wasn’t reduced. Before the fire could spread, residents of the affected homes and others nearby took their belongings away. Firefighters also had to close a gas cylinder which was about to explode. The fire personnel confirmed that three houses and affected workshop are located on calles México y A de la colonia Reacomodo Lomitas. Preliminary reports said the fire originated between the houses and workshop, but the exact cause has not yet been determined. You can prevent fires in your home or place of work: Check electrical and gas lines, Do not leave the oven turned on when leaving, Avoid childrens’ contact with matches or lighters, Don’t accumulate garbage or any other materials that could spread a fire, and If possible, install smoke detectors in your home
