“In truth, tragedy and comedy are the twin masks of history - its mass appeal.” José Ortega y Gasset High or New California was part of a Spanish colony until 190 years ago, when the independence movement in Mexico came to fruition and both Spain and the then-known New Spain signed an agreement granting freedom to the new country. After that, and only for a few years, California belonged to the First Mexican Empire, led by Agustín de Iturbide. And it was during this time that Californians were told the revolution against Spain was over.

For the first time I can remember our bougainvillea has completely frozen black and looks dead. Lots of our trees look dead, too. What is the best way to trim or somehow bring everything back? Are they dead or do they just look that way? — Garden Gal, El Centro We contacted the Imperial County Cooperative Extension near Holtville and got some really good information from plant pathology adviser Donna Henderson. She said bougainvillea are hardy desert plants that can tolerate temperatures of a minimum of 65 degrees Fahrenheit at night and 75 to 95 degrees during the day. The series of freezes in Imperial Valley during the past month-plus have left several trees and bushes with some frost damage.

AP Writer RICHMOND, Va. (AP) ? Friends knew Richard Marc Evonitz as a nice guy ? a married Navy man who was active in his community. Lurking beneath that exterior, authorities say, was a ??sexually sadistic psychopath" who abducted and murdered a string of young girls. Evonitz, 38, fatally shot himself in June after police tracked him to Sarasota, Fla. He had been sought in the abduction and rape of a 15-year-old girl in Lexington, S.C. On Tuesday, police announced what investigators had suspected since soon after Evonitz's suicide: that he had murdered three Virginia girls in 1996 and 1997.

As one of the few Jews that work in the Valley I would like to give my opinion about ?Gestapo tactics.? Getting shoved, pistol butted, spat at, or getting jabbed by a bayonet are ?Gestapo tactics.? Not only physical abuse, but mental abuse as well. In previous letters to the I.V. Press editor I have stated that illegal immigration doesn?t bother me ? it?s the coyotes that do the smuggling and leave them for dead when the going gets tough. A fellow Jew, but a conservative, brought it to my attention that Europe has removed its borders and people from the European continent are allowed to go from country to country without the need of a passport.

Hyperbole is often used in sports, especially at the high school level. When it comes to Royce Freeman, however, it's simply unnecessary.

Those yards have come in only 10 games on just 178 carries, giving Freeman an incredible 13.3 yards per carry, with 34...

In various sites on the Internet (including your Classified section) I sometimes see a vehicle with a “salvage” title. How does this differ as compared to a “clear” title? How does it affect the ownership having a car with a salvage title? Does it affect insurance? Is it a problem trying to license a car with a salvage title? Does it affect resale value? Please, if I didn’t ask something I should have; please let me know. — Clear vs. Salvage, Brawley A salvaged vehicle is defined in the California Vehicle Code Section 11515, said Armando Botello, a spokesman with the California Department of Motor Vehicles in Sacramento.

Chavez recalled one patient who at age 39 had the cataracts of an elderly man and his vision had deteriorated to the point where he was nearly blind.

My children have several foot-powered (i.e. Razor) scooters and they wear their helmets. I have seen several other children in the neighborhood riding without helmets. Some other parents and I were wondering if there is a helmet law for such scooters, as well as for skateboards. They are concerned that they will be fined if there is a helmet law and it is enforced. — Concerned Parent Besides being a very bad idea, it is apparently illegal for kids to be zipping around on their scooters with no helmet.

Ante la crisis económica que ha afectado el poder adquisitivo y el crédito de millones de familias, el sistema de apartados, conocido en inglés como layaway, ha vuelto a ser un recurso popular. “Esto puede ser una buena idea, pero debe de fijarse bien en los términos del sistema de apartados porque tiene ventajas y desventajas”, señala Connie Costello, educadora de asuntos del consumidor de Extensión Cooperativa de la Universidad de California. Ella explica los puntos a favor y en contra: Entre las ventajas están: - Usted podrá aprovechar las ofertas de la tienda e ir pagando poco a poco su mercancía.  - Podrá pagar por la mercancía que puso en apartado en determinado plazo, y no tiene que hacer la compra con cargo a su tarjeta de crédito; así se evita el pago de intereses.
