CALEXICO — Defendant Kym Cano often argued with her husband, Francisco, over an affair she accused him of having, the couple’s 16-year-old son testified Wednesday. Cano, who has pleaded not guilty to the charge of second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of Francisco Cano, would yell at him during the arguments but he would not react violently, the boy said. Francisco Cano, a California Highway Patrol officer, was off duty when he died from a single gunshot wound to his face Dec. 4, 2006 at his two-story home in Calexico.

Through the 1980s, MTV defined a generation. Through the 1990s, it chartered new ground. And now, 25 years later, MTV is having the kind of effect on a generation that it did when it first aired ? kind of. Launched in 1981, Music Television recently turned 25 years old, but did so not so much with a bang, but rather with an attentionless thud. ?MTV didn?t even celebrate its 25th anniversary,? said Robert J. Thompson, popular culture professor and director of Syracuse University?

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.

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.

I had a layaway plan at Kmart. I couldn't pay it so Kmart was supposed to cancel it and only charge me $10. By the time it was canceled, the cashier was handing me a receipt - which I refused to even touch - in my hand totaling $6 and some cents. I had paid around $38 to put a TV on layaway. I was charged $30 in penalties for the cancellation. I lost my job last September, and have had to make some changes in my lifestyle. I was counting on at least a $25 refund. This isn't right.

The latest proposal by the Bureau of Land Management to eliminate season passes for the Imperial Sand Dunes Recreation Area is proving to be a tough sell among visitors and local officials. The proposal was first announced, and criticized, at the Bureau's Desert Advisory Council subgroup meeting last month. One local official and member of the subgroup expressed concern that the BLM's proposal failed to take into account the unique economic circumstances of many local residents.

The prosecution rested its case Monday in the second-degree murder trial of Kym Cano but the defendant?s 15-year-old son testified about how his father, a California Highway Patrol officer, drank and argued with his mother. But at no time did the teenage witness, who is the first of the Cano children to take the stand, ever see his father Francisco Cano display any aggression while inebriated or strike his mother who is accused of fatally shooting him with his service gun on Dec. 4, 2006, in their Calexico home.

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.

Valley residents who regularly travel to Mexico say they simply exercise caution and common sense down here, undeterred by a U.S. Department of State's November travel warning to some parts of Mexico.

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.

How many times do I have to go around Bucklin Park to complete a mile? - Exerciser, El Centro As a general rule, we've always heard and been told by friends and associates that Bucklin Park is a half-mile loop if you walk the outside-edge path one time. So, make that outside loop twice, and you've got one mile. When we started jogging, we found some Web sites that allowed us to map our routes so we knew how far we were traveling. We did that with Bucklin Park, and the word-of-mouth was true.

According to friends and acquaintances there are more positive things to growing older than negative things. One of the first to come to mind is that most seniors are quicker to forgive and forget.  1. A group of women out to lunch isn't embarrassed when changing tables three times before ordering. Valid reasons for this are that the spot is too drafty, the music is too loud, the adjoining table has noisy guests, or the view is bad. 2. Seniors are happy to get home early. They like hearing the words, “in conclusion.” 3. Seniors have no problem wearing clunky shoes with all their outfits.
