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.

To follow up on the recent Probe questions regarding the closed rest areas between El Centro and San Diego along Interstate 8, is it illegal to stop on the side of the freeway to urinate? Would I get a ticket from the California Highway Patrol? I drive frequently to San Diego, and with no rest areas when you have to go ... you go on the side of the freeway. — Can’t Hold It, El Centro This question is great, possibly destined to be a classic. Anyway, we called the local office of the California Highway Patrol and spoke with Sgt. Terry Brollini, who was really helpful and patient with our question.

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, people all around the Valley have their own tales of spooky experiences. Calexico resident Chuy Iniguez used to work the graveyard shift with Imperial Irrigation District on the All-American Canal. One night he looked down the bank and saw several people walking. “I got scared, blinked twice and started walking to where the people were supposed to be, but they weren't there,” he said. “I used to get scared, but after the first five years working there, I got used to it. You see all this stuff and aren't sure if it's your mind playing tricks.

“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present.” — Abraham Lincoln Businesswoman, mother and widow Heidi Kuhn is president of KF Dairy and a partner of Imperial Valley Cheese, the only producer of Swiss and Muenster cheese in California. And yet, her career accomplishments came with a painful price — the loss of her beloved husband Jim Kuhn, the father of their young children. In the five years following Jim’s tragic and untimely death, Kuhn has pushed through her grief to continue the Valley agriculture business ventures her husband boldly founded so many years ago. But more significantly, she is a loving mother to their son and daughter, attempting to instill a sense of their father’s presence and perpetual love for them.

A former politician who made national news after a video went viral showing him hitting his stepson with a belt has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor child endangerment charge. Anthony Sanchez, a former Imperial Irrigation District director, will serve three years of probation, 50 hours of community service and enroll in an anger management class after pleading to the lesser charge alleged against him in Imperial County Superior Court. Because of the plea, the District Attorney's Office dropped the felony inflicting injury to a child charge against him. Sanchez was accused of hitting his stepson with a belt after a video was posted to YouTube in June.

I went to Subway the other day to buy two footlongs. I wanted one toasted and was told by the employee that Subway now charges to have a footlong toasted. My question is, why? I asked the employee and she didn’t have an answer. Are they going to charge for baking your bread, too? Is the oven contracted by some other company? What gives? Money is not the issue, just curiosity. I think it sounds ridiculous? — Soft and Doughy, El Centro We chose to answer this question as an example of the public’s blatant abuse of PROBE.

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.

There have been several reports about a “Ding Dong Ditcher” on the loose. The two areas that have suffered these attacks have been Brawley and Imperial. I say suffered because apparently this criminal is ringing doorbells as early as 3 a.m. For those of us who have to wake up early to go to work, this is disastrous. What can we do about this inconsiderate idiot that obviously has too much time on his/her hands? Oh … please don't suggest “the police.” - Tired, Imperial We're wondering whom we should contact, if we can't contact the police?

BRAWLEY - City officials expressed mixed feelings about a halfway house for federal prison inmates scheduled to open within the next few months. The residential re-entry center has been contracted to provide housing for about two dozen inmates as they seek to transition back into society. The federal Bureau of Prisons decided on establishing an RRC in the Valley some three years ago, said an official with the company contracted to run the facility, Anaheim-based Working Alternatives Inc. Bureaucratic delays kept the facility at 718 and 720 E St. from opening sooner.

The thornless hybrid mesquite is nearly the perfect tree for the desert. The mesquites are exceptionally well-adapted to the area and will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions and varying irrigation regimens. And they may be grown alone in full sun or in groups to make a more tropical jungle-like appearance. The mesquites are easy to recognize as they have rich, dark brown trunks and bright medium to dark green canopies. Some say the mesquites provide the appearance of the Serengeti African plains.

I think many of us were spoiled by the immense number of fish that could be caught in the Salton Sea. Up until a few years ago the Salton Sea was ranked as the most productive fishing area in the world. You could catch more pounds of fish and more fish per fishing hour than anywhere in the world. Unfortunately all the fish, with the exception of tilapia, have perished from the Salton Sea, leaving a void where many local fishermen can go to catch fish, especially big ones. I have good news for those of you that miss catching those big corvina.

The U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down federal Environmental Protection Agency exemptions on Imperial County's air pollution Thursday, ordering that the Imperial Valley be classified as "severe" for particulate air pollution. The ruling pleased environmentalists, who claim tougher air controls will help curb public health concerns, while county government representatives and voices from the agriculture industry said the ruling could have costly economic impacts. "This could be potentially devastating for us," said Imperial County Board of Supervisors Chairman Joe Maruca.
