On Valentine's Day, travelers may wish to bring flowers with them from Mexico into the United States. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials want residents and visitors to know what to expect when they cross the border. Chrysanthemums, gladiolas and orange jasmine from Mexico are prohibited through the passenger ports of entry, according to a press release from Customs and Border Protection. So travelers cannot bring arrangements with those flowers into the country through a passenger port of entry, like the Calexico border crossing.

How can I determine if the A/C unit installed in my home is sufficent to do the work of cooling the square footage of my home (1900 sq. ft.)? Is there a template for this? There is only one correctly sized air conditioner or heat pump for your home. A unit that is oversized will turn on and off too frequently, called "short cycling". Short cycling causes the unit to lose both efficiency, and the ability to properly dehumidify the home. This may result in higher utility bills and a less comfortable home.

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.

My wife and I went to Los Angeles last weekend and passed through the Border Patrol checkpoint on Highway 86. They asked 10 questions including, “where are you from?” ... “where are you going?” ... “are you coming from Mexico?” Etc., etc. We answered their questions and they asked for identification. I hand them my SENTRI card and they look at it and tell me they want another form of ID. I want to know what questions they can ask? They are either rude or just wave you through.

Staff Writer With a "snap!" of Suzy Haner's fingers, a row of her "stars" slump in aluminum chairs. Eyelids fall heavy. Heads loll. Shoulders melt. Haner turns to face a standing room only audience at the California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta. She's made the turn a thousand times, snapped her fingers three times as many, but every time, at the fair or corporate event where she is performing, the reaction is the same ? there's at least one slack-jawed person in the audience who wonders, "How'd she do that?"

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.

He eventually made his way to Keystone Road and Highway 86 where he was able to flag down help. The crash occurred about 3 a.m. as Hutchison was driving along Highway 86 into Brawley. He failed to negotiate a curve in the highway, struck a guardrail, then a second guardrail and crashed into the Central Main.

Most are proud to serve their communities and consider it their duty to put their lives on the line every day.

He joined the Highway Patrol and has been a sworn officer for three years.

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.

QUESTION: While clicking through my newly-subscribed-to HBO channel on TV, I was shocked to see a pornographic show that was hardcore and left nothing to the imagination. I thought pornography was against the law. I read all the time about people getting arrested for having pornographic materials. What?s going on? ? Disgusted, Imperial County. We?ve been longtime subscribers to HBO and can say with 100 percent certainty that there is no hardcore porn being shown there. Then again, maybe our definition of pornography differs from yours.
