Exactly one month after the official formation of a new school board the Calexico Unified School District must prepare to say goodbye to its superintendent. In what some might deem a surprise move, Superintendent Christina Luna announced at a special board meeting Friday evening — both verbally and by a signed letter — she will resign effective July 31. Board President Gloria Romo restated Saturday in a bilingual interview that Luna’s contract was slated to end July 31 as Calexico’s previous board decided not to extend her contract last August.

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.

Hazy skies throughout Imperial Valley typically signify one thing this time of year: Farmers are finishing their crops of wheat and burning off the stubble from their fields.

QUESTION: With the recent news that it snowed in Baghdad for the first time ever, is there, on record, a time when it snowed in the Valley? My father-in-law told me once that he did remember at least one time snowing in the Mexicali Valley when he was a kid; he was born in 1923. With the crazy weather around the world, I bet it will be just a matter of time when we do get snow here in the Valley. ? Let It Snow, El Centro.

In rodeo, the "big production number" comes at the start of the show. The idea is to build excitement and put the crowd in a festive mood for the rest of the performance. The "grand entry" or opening ceremony ? in contrast to the "grand finale" of theater and movie musicals ? includes a cast of hundreds of men and women performing choreographed routines on horseback, with a stirring musical accompaniment and dramatic narration by the rodeo announcer. This year, the Cattle Call Rodeo Committee is planning a special opening ceremony for the performances at 2 and 7 p.m. Nov. 10 and 1 p.m. Nov. 11. "We will adapt our traditional Western patriotic theme to current and recent events," explained Curt Rutherford, committee member.

Several psychiatrists have said that Scott Peterson is a psychopath. A psychopath is NOT a psycho. He is not insane. He is conscienceless. At one time the psychopath was called a "moral degenerate. " Later he was renamed a "psychopath" and "sociopath. " Sociopath is the term I prefer to use. One noted psychologist, Hervey Cleckley, wrote what I believe to be the definitive (early) study of social pathology. He titled that book "The Mask of Sanity. " A more modern psychiatrist calls sociopaths "Human Chameleons.
