Don't be surprised if you're walking in New York City and you run into a special quesadilla that tastes just like the ones from the Imperial Valley. Tyler Sanders, 29, and Kyle Cameron, 24, both of Brawley, and Christian Pineda, 26, of Tijuana, have opened their restaurant, Los Tacos No. 1, to rave reviews and daily long lines in New York City's Chelsea Market. While none of them formally studied culinary arts, all three have seemed to crack the New York City restaurant code with their handmade tortillas, simple menu, low prices and authentic styling.

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.

I recently discovered the best thrift shop in San Diego. It is The Rock Thrift Store, located at 3191-B Sports Arena Blvd. The shop is light and airy, and staffed by courteous volunteers who seem to be having a great time. Everything is clean. Nothing is stained or torn, and a lot of name brand merchandise is sold. The shop is an outreach of the Rock Church in Liberty Station off Rosecrans. Today’s finds included sweatpants and a polo shirt for one of my sons, a wonderful new chopping block and a set of placemats.

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 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.

Amanda Gonzales was by many accounts a fun-loving teen who wasn?t shy about playing a joke on anyone, including the principal of Foothill Christian School in Glendora. This was exemplified when she helped place a number of white plastic forks with their prongs sticking up from the front lawn of Robert Gutzwiller?s house a couple of years ago, he said. Amanda got a surprise when she found a bundle of the forks in her locker. Each fork carried a letter that when arranged spelled a cryptic sentence that read, ?

One of the most common citrus questions regards the best citrus varieties to plant in the low desert. Although our extreme heat, wind and occasional frosts limit our choices, there are many varieties that perform well under our conditions. Commercially, high quality early-season grapefruit, lemons, mandarins and Valencia oranges come from desert areas in California and Arizona and it is possible to successfully grow these trees in your home garden as well. > > Grapefruit For the red-fleshed grapefruit, there are several options.

CALEXICO ? Now that the California Fourth District Court of Appeal has ruled in favor of Dez Construction, the Calexico Unified School District may find itself forking over a large sum of cash. Dez Construction originally lost a lawsuit filed against the CUSD alleging that the district unfairly awarded a bid for the installation of new water and gas lines at De Anza Junior High School to Denton Construction of El Centro. The El Cajon-based business appealed the decision and the appellate justices in December reversed the decision of now-retired Superior Court Judge James Harmon, contending that "the trial court erred by concluding the district did not act arbitrarily or capriciously in awarding the contract to Denton.

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.

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.
