Ensenada employees unpaid and given no explanation. The municipal government is stealing the people's money to pay other concerns.



ENSENADA, Baja California, MEXICO - Unionized workers, firemen and forest service workers showed their unhappiness in the lack of payment this last pay period, the last one for the administration of Mayor Gilberto Hirata Chico.

They said that fire department personnel, forest service personnel are owed paychecks for October and November, plus this last missed check, and they plan to demonstrate next Monday at the City Hall. Likewise, more that 1,000 bureaucrats said they were not paid, just as was done with the prior mayor Pelayo Torres, and they will probably still be owed paychecks in the new administration to headed by Novelo Osuna. 

The workers also said that the health insurance fees, vacation pay, and benefits deducted from their bi-monthly paychecks have not been paid. "We can no longer allow that they leave us with no paychecks when we have to bring food home, because we are family heads. It is not just that they deduct money from us each paycheck and we are not covered. It is our money," was the general demand.

Neither the municipal treasurer nor Mayor Hirata Chico have provided any response to the amounts due the workers. One report from Zeta Newspaper said, the employees never get paid properly around the time of the annual Baja 1000 gringo races.

The races are now significant money losers for the local tourism authority and the State of Baja California ignores the misappropriation of money to tolerate the events that bring visitors to the state every year.

 ROSARITO REPORT: "While the authorities announced joining forces to provide full attention to the Spring Breakers, police and security guards at certain night clubs in the Barbachona Zone are getting mordidas.In one of the cases the police were acting with total cynicism, taking a young American to the ATM to remove the money they demanded.The youths reported that when they returned from the beach to their rooms at the Rosarito Hotel, where they were guests, they were approached by three subjects, two wearing police uniforms and with "a badge on their chest," and another who looked like a security guard at a night club. The police abused their authority and far from having any tolerance that the authorities had announced for the Barbachano Zone, they demanded money from the youths to not arrest them. One of the youths had handcuffed placed on him and forced him and his companions to go to an ATM to remove $300 dollars and set them free.The youths reported the event to 911, and the Rosarito Hotel administration had the authorities investigate the case.Knowledge was gained that other youths were victims of these same types of acts by security guards and police, presumable commercial police."Spring Breakers" have reported that police are taking advantage of their condition and stop them for any reason to intimidate them and demand money in return for not charging them, mainly with infractions which many tourists are unaware of.These acts add to the ironically named "rat blockades" for cars that certain municipal police have placed on Bulevar 2000 and where many drivers have complained because the police are demanding money to not give them tickets."

TIJUANA REPORT: "We got into the Sentri lane by accident and we were charged $1,400 dollars, but got it down to $250 dollars. His buddies escorted us to an ATM that was nearby. After paying he opened up so we could get into the regular lane. This was on January 30 at 1PM. He said he was a federal police officer with bridges and highways, and said his name is Luis or Roberto. We are a group which helps out at rehab centers and walk the worst streets of Tijuana, and nothing happens to us. We were 50 yards from US Immigration and they saw what happened to us and we told the. They said this happens every day. That thief took my bank receipt, but I took a copy."

 disruptions in Tijuana! 1-17-17
Liberty Zabala, a general assignment reporter in San Diego for KNSD-TV Channel 7/39, was arrested in Tijuana for about three hours on Monday by Mexican customs officials alongside a San Diego freelance journalist for allegedly taking images in a restricted federal area at the El Chaparral port of entry. A Mexican federal government source with knowledge of the incident said on Tuesday, that two individuals had been spotted at 9:45 a.m. Monday, January 17, on a government video surveillance camera at the port’s “nothing to declare lanes,” and observed “using communications equipment". Zabala could not be reached Tuesday, but KNSD’s news director, Greg Dawson, said Liberty is on her own. Gonzalo Ruiz said he had heard about protests in recent days at the Mexican port and “wanted to get a glimpse of what was going on...I figured I’d take video for my b-roll.” Ruiz and and Zabala were asked for their U.S. passports. “The offender with an 'altered tone' argued that he was in a public right of way, and had the right to use any communications equipment and/or video camera,” according to the same federal source. After a three-hour arrest, Ruiz said authorities returned their passports and allowed them to leave, only after Ruiz was fined 11,000 pesos, about $500, while Zabala was not penalized.

In September, the Editor Opined...

Lets look honestly at Roger's failed record as a race organizing sanction. (Click the Links)

*The Death of Kurt Caselli

*The felony mishandling of race emergency medical responses and tracking responsibilities.

*A child drove over and killed at the last Baja 500. No SCORE acceptance of responsibility. Though, the course was not marked correctly. The racer in question had no business behind the wheel. Roger Norman personally accepted the race conditions, on site, as acceptable for his "race sanction".


*The government of Baja Sur called him a 'LIAR', in the public press. A record low for SCORE.

*Roger's Baja Sur 500, not on the schedule for 2017 and written off for good by the government because Norman lied about the race failure.

*Former SCORE owner Sal Fish has now disavowed any support for Roger Norman.

*Roger's disrespecting Imperial Valley and Mexicali Valley residents by treating them as slaves.

*The Mango Racing Death Fiasco. Gary Magness team lost one of their favorite team members in a horrible incident at the Baja 1000. None of the racers wanted to admit at the time, SCORE failed to support the impacted racing community after one racer went to jail and Roger failed to handle the situation in a timely manner. Charges of 'bail money theft' were also leveled against the race sanction.

*Roger Norman's continued, failed, copying of other peoples work. The The USA 500/Reno races, the Rosarito race, the CABO race and the Imperial Valley event. He tried buying the MINT race.  

*How many people, working for Roger, are now gone with continued, multiplied inferior performance in their respective positions, the norm for the race sanction?

So, this is the 'NEW SCORE?'
Our opinion back in November 2014

Safari Club Celebrates 1966 as Presenting Sponsor of KING of BAJA 2016


Safari Club 1966 Destructs Baja Mexico
Everyone wanted a road trip. We knew all the road houses from Hollywood to Ensenada and out East to Needles. We decided, “Well,  there is this funky and small bar and restaurant called Concheria at Lecerito or Cerito beach,” someone mentioned.
“Lecerito, Cerito Beach … where the hell is that?”
Oh about 20-30 miles south of our usual hangout, Tijuana's Long Bar. Great spot, local joint, nice bar, nice beach, good street tacos, burritos, and chili rellenos.  Sounds good?
Another Safari Club! Call the band, lets A-GO-GO!
Sure, made a deal with the owners, gave them a ton of pesos to buy 15 kegs and said we would be down this weekend with some nice and mellow friends. Oh yes, we told them we would supply the paper cups and bring a rock and roll band.
Hummm … sounds like a bitchen time …
Max Meda Mexico - notice the wooden kegs
The first thing one must do to start any Baja Convention is to pop the kegs – Eber (RIP) knocks out the plug while Mike Wilson supervises and Buddy Lundy gives the two finger salute.  Check out the wooden spigots and kegs.
So you spread the word …  pass out a pickup truck of fliers with directions that you made off the copy machine when the teacher was not looking. And didn’t give a shit if the cops heard, in fact they  were breathing easier that weekend, knowing a Convention was going to held out of country!
Then you packed every vehicle you could find with every 'bitchen' person for a road trip down south. We were but a mere small fraction of our brothers and sisters, Mac Meda.
The results; one huge, insane, blowout beer-drinking Convention that included pushing cars over, falling down drunks and bottle rocket and firecracker wars that finally ended up with the Federales coming (slang Gringo term for the Mexican Federal Police)  that wanted everyone OUT of the fricking country …
… which is was not a good thing to do, considering there was 200 plus Gringos and a few of them.
So, things started getting out of hand,  the next thing that happened, the walls started to be ripped down, a car got turned over, and they lit the place on fire …
Just boys and girls having a bit of fun….
The start of another Baja Safari Pre-Run, around 1966


Safari Club at the Long Bar, Tijuana

Breaking beer bottles! We went through so much beer back in those days! By the time we starting saluting each other, we were lit. clinking turned into breaking. Glass on the floor and beer all over, get the mops!

Coffee cans played a major role in a road trip to Tijuana, Mexico. When Folgers came out with their one gallon cans, it set a new trend in date night to the Long Bar.
It took a pretty savvy and opened minded girl to head to TJ and bar hop with her boyfriend.  Most only went there one time because it was just plain disgusting. Men’s toilets were bad enough, but the restrooms for girls had zero privacy and had no attendant who would sell them bun wad, or splash on cheap perfumed so you wouldn’t walk out smelling like the burrito some girl just puked into the toilet next to yours.
One of the biggest drawbacks was waiting at the border to cross back into the U.S.  At 2-3am on a Saturday night the wait could be as long as several hours. Many a car over heated, so it was common to see steam bellowing out from under the hoods. Or guys and girls pushing cars to save on gas or trying to prevent the over heating.

However, the need to pee after consuming many gallons of green beer was the problem, especially when it was date night. A guy trip it was okay, all they did was stick Mr. Wiggle in some container, let loose, then roll down the window and empty the container while waiting in line.  No problema.
It was pretty funny looking down the long lines and every once in a while an arm would stick out, and shake the last drop out and the constant splash when tires rolled over puddles of pee or in some cases chunky puddles of an even mixture of  regurgitated, stale beer, tequila,  street tacos and burritos.
Back in the original Safari Club days, the cars were not these tinny, compact pieces of shit, where ones knees would be cramped up into ones chest sitting in the back seat. They had plenty of room, and lots of it. One of my '57 Chevy Sedans had a back seat like a concert hall.

So when the gallon coffee can came out, girls had a nice porta potty. for their adventure down south. They literally could place the can on the floor board, some chick would make sure none of the guys would watch and she’d let loose.  When done, they were a bit more casual and secret about dumping their pee.  The can also provided a wide opening to puke in. It was not lady like to just stick the head out the window, as the guys did.
Usually they waited until the car was going about ½ mile an hour, open the door and slowly pour it out, thinking that no one would notice.  That way, they were sure not to step in it, if the car started to overheat and their services were required to help that 1964 4-door Ford sedan that your parents thought you were going to the Clairemont Bowling Alley.
However, there were always those that would hold it until their faces turned blue, and looked like they were going to explode. As soon as they passed immigration/customs, the first stop was a  Denny’s like 24/hr diner called, Sambos, just  100 yards away. Sambos had a sign, “Restrooms for Customers Only,” and made a ton of money on selling ten cent coffee and/or a soda pop to go.
This is what women had to deal with went they went on date night to TJ
This is what women had to deal with went they went on date night to TJ
Unfortunately some just could not hold it, and you were riding home with a pee smell in your car. The smell you could handle, it was explaining to your parents of how it got there became the problem.
Those who knew the routine (ex  girl scouts, so they were prepared) would slip in a roll of bun wad in their purse and lots of perfume.
Even to this day, bar hopping in TJ on date night was the answer to  the age-old question, Why is it that  pairs of girls always go to the restroom together?
Answer is simple, One to guard the door, the other to do her thing.
When three girls went, you just knew the restrooms were bad, one guarded the door, the other helped the one straddle the toilet as the other did her thing – a girl thing and tradition that continues to this day.

We always take our surf boards when prerunning. It's not a Baja Safari without 'em!




What started in La Jolla at my folks house, ended up in Hollywood and Cabo San Lucas as the Safari Club. Fun is our middle name, Since 1966!
Back in the early 1960s, everyone in California knew there was something different about the La Jolla’s WindanSea crowd and surfers like Mike Anthony, Curren, Mike Diffenderfer (RIP) Tiny Brain Thomas, Billy Graham, and Butch Van Artsdalen (RIP).” Pat Curren and Mike Diffenderfer were known to hang at the the PumpHouse and Birds Rock’s.
When some of the Mac Meda stayed on the beach bombed, the 'Club' went off-road. For more Baja, deeper, longer lasting. Much more satisfiying! We continued making more friends, way before F-Book.

The club became known with the "L.A. crowds, pagans, drawing down the moon". Jim Morrison of the Doors, told us how he dug taking our blue bus to Mexico. "What a psychedelic country", he said. The Day of Dead became a major fascination. Jim's short time in San Diego county, in Coronado, exposed the youngster to a whole new world, outside his fathers US Navy community.   

The group, the Safari Club, morphed in so many directions with all of our friends, it confused many of our early paying customers! We all ended up on the dunes at Glamis, the American Sahara and Bahia San Lucas, at Baja Sur, Mexico. 

For a time, south of Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico we became co-creators with the 'Life's A Beach' crew, exploring everything Baja Norte-Baja North.
Rakestraw and Curren had similar trends, both were regulars at local watering holes near La Jolla and many times shared temporary living quarters in a San Diego jail, so much so – Rakestraw used to write Curren little messages on the jail walls.
The Mac Meda crowd started the  phrase “Surf Nazis,” where they would dress up like Nazis  and ride down the storm drain on their Flexy Flyers that started at the top of  Bon Air Street.  What a bitchen thrill that was!!!
Mel Brooks style Nazi parties wound up bursting into local restaurants, having Nazi parties in the bunkers up on Mt. Soledad and they even became guests at the Jewish fraternities at U.S.C.
One time the La Jolla, California elite got scared, thinking there was some new Aryan group that was infiltrating their community. They called the three lettered suits.
Jack was then working in the Post Office when his supervisor came up and said, “Uh, Mac…the suits are here to talk to you.”  So he sat in a car with two suits, G-Men. He then told them they were just having a good time on their flexy-fliers,  screaming down a dark drain pipe and shooting out at WindanSea.
The suits started laughing and said something like, “It does sound like a good time.”
“The most rebellious group of people I ever met,” said legendary big wave surfer  Fred Van Dyke.  “They were like wild animals!
