What can I do if my neighbor parks his cars outside my home where I put my trash cans? Politely asking them if they can leave the parking space open on trash pick-up days has not worked. A couple of times my trash has not gotten picked up because my neighbor has moved my trash can on the sidewalk so that he can park. Is there anything that I can do? – Fed Up, Calexico You should be glad to know there are a couple of options at your disposal. If, as you state, the neighbor discarded your prior requests, a call to the police might be in order.

Story by HEATHER BREMNER, Photos by KEVIN MARTY, Staff A woman in white standing in the window of an abandoned building. A little girl waiting near the doorway of an old El Centro home. A cache of bones churned up while digging a canal. Every town has its ghost stories: stories of restless souls, children who died tragically, people murdered by the hand of a loved one. Their spirits must be searching for something, some say. They cannot rest in peace until they settle some score.

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.

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.

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.
