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. With global-warming a reality, we expect the Imperial Valley to be the next Big Bear in a couple hundred years.

For the New Year, love and prosperity are just a bikini and a bra away. When the clock strikes midnight tonight some people, especially those who live near the border, will be wearing red or yellow undergarments. The tradition calls for putting on the underwear right before midnight so the New Year finds you wearing them. Cristina Rocha, owner of Christina's lingerie in Calexico, said she starts selling the goods in November. Panties, bras and even men's briefs of both colors are a hot sell during the holiday season.

What about the new pope? - Papal Watcher, Imperial County The short answer is, the red papal shoes are meant “to honor the martyrs of the Church, people who have given their life for the faith,” said Michael Lovette-Coyler, assistant vice president of mission and ministry of University of San Diego.

On two occasions in the past few months, I have witnessed customers paying for beer at a local market. The first occasion was a gentleman in his early 20s who paid for a couple of miscellaneous food items and a 12-pack with an EBT card meant for food assistance. The second occasion was last Sunday when a young woman paid for miscellaneous food items and a three-pack of 16-ounce cans of beer. This means, we, the taxpayers who get up every morning to go to work, are paying for beer for these individuals who receive food assistance.

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.

Albert Salgado is arguably a lucky man. At 71 years of age, the Calexico resident has been cancer-free for 17 years, and credits something far more elemental than modern medicine for his cure: faith. The retired U.S. Customs agent started losing his voice in late 1994. What he initially thought was simply a sore throat was, in reality, a tumor in his left vocal chord. If there was one thing that was positive, it is that doctors identified the cancer in an early stage. They moved quickly and removed the tumor surgically.
