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.

One of the most common citrus questions regards the best citrus varieties to plant in the low desert. Although our extreme heat, wind and occasional frosts limit our choices, there are many varieties that perform well under our conditions. Commercially, high quality early-season grapefruit, lemons, mandarins and Valencia oranges come from desert areas in California and Arizona and it is possible to successfully grow these trees in your home garden as well. > > Grapefruit For the red-fleshed grapefruit, there are several options.

Chris Martin from Coldplay is a wuss. Besides all that ridiculous sad bastard music his silly band practices, he seems like a genuinely miserable human being, and another one of those camera-shy celebrities who thinks the world revolves around him and his need for privacy. Dude, then what the hell are you doing going to Disneyland? The Wife and I took our Satan spawn to Disneyland for her birthday last weekend. We weren?t in the park 20 minutes when I ran into the Coldplay front man, his (poorly named)

BRAWLEY - City officials expressed mixed feelings about a halfway house for federal prison inmates scheduled to open within the next few months. The residential re-entry center has been contracted to provide housing for about two dozen inmates as they seek to transition back into society. The federal Bureau of Prisons decided on establishing an RRC in the Valley some three years ago, said an official with the company contracted to run the facility, Anaheim-based Working Alternatives Inc. Bureaucratic delays kept the facility at 718 and 720 E St. from opening sooner.

As Michael Mizumoto walks into a dim warehouse, he reveals gurgling vats full of minuscule carp hatchlings that will soon devour aquatic weeds in Imperial Irrigation District canals. “A young grass carp can sometimes eat two to three times its body weight every day in the summer,” said Mizumoto, IID’s supervisor of biological control. “That’s why it’s a tool, because it eats so much vegetation, and that’s what we want the fish to do.” When Mizumoto held a flashlight over a vat, tiny carp hatchlings the size of ballpoint pen tips appeared in the murky water.

The thornless hybrid mesquite is nearly the perfect tree for the desert. The mesquites are exceptionally well-adapted to the area and will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions and varying irrigation regimens. And they may be grown alone in full sun or in groups to make a more tropical jungle-like appearance. The mesquites are easy to recognize as they have rich, dark brown trunks and bright medium to dark green canopies. Some say the mesquites provide the appearance of the Serengeti African plains.

How often does a person who is on probation get tested for drugs? I see a person that I know is on probation and he seems to always be under the influence of drugs. Also, what happens if he violates his probation? - Curious, Imperial County This is an excellent question with a not very excellent answer. But that's no fault of who we went to for our info. Truth be told, there are so many variables involved in this question, from who gets testing as part of their probation terms, to how often they are subject to testing, to what exactly happens if someone violates probation.

NILAND - Since the carnival rides stopped coming to the Tomato Festival about four years ago, the festival had been boring and lonely, according to sell and trade merchant Jaime Calsada - but this year it's different.  Probably the whole town visited the festival at some point during the weekend, said Calsada, and “they are loving it.” For Calsada, business was very good this weekend, with Sunday slowing down considerably because “today (residents) are burned out.” Some 600 people came to the festival, he said.

HOLTVILLE ? Ten years. Ten years of her life were spent in a room, steps from the boy, now a man, who stabbed her 14-year-old daughter to death. During those 10 years Vickie Hines watched Adan Garcia grow up. Every year at the parole hearings, she watched as Garcia claimed remorse for his actions. She listened as Garcia explained exactly what happened that night during his 13th year of life. And every time Hines attended a hearing she knew another year was tacked on, that Garcia was one step closer to turning 25 and walking into freedom.

Some cool off by heading to the beaches of Ensenada or San Diego or maybe the river in Yuma, but others have been splashing around the lesser-known Rio Hardy for decades. The water sport oasis is about 35 to 45 minutes south of Mexicali on the way to San Felipe and boasts a secluded and peaceful area to enjoy activities such as water skiing, boating, wakeboarding and more. Land along Rio Hardy is privately owned by about four or five people, and more than 95 percent of the shoreline properties are rented out by U.S. citizens primarily from California and Arizona, said Omar Dipp Nuñez, general director of Comité de Turismo y Convenciones de Mexicali.

In the early-morning darkness, zanjero Jose Torres drives his Imperial Irrigation District pickup with dexterity along the narrow paths that run along fields and IID canals. “I like it because this is the job I wanted to do since I was a kid,” said Torres, a 25-year IID zanjero. “I enjoy my job because I get to know farmers and irrigators.” As an IID zanjero, Torres relies on mathematical formulas and years of experience to deliver the precise amount of water to farmers in the Valley.
