We've been going to this park for 11 years. Why would she treat us this way because my husband got sick two days late? — No Refund, Alberta, Canada
Did you also know that Villanueva grew up in Calexico and still has friends in this area?

She didn't want to hear that you could not foresee Jan. 28 that your husband would get sick Feb. 1.
QUESTION: While shopping in a local market, I noticed a clerk stocking vegetables from boxes noting: "A product of Mexico."
I have been eating food from a country where you can't drink the water! A farmer told me Mexico uses pesticides that have been banned in this country for 20 years!
Does the federal government inspect vegetables when they cross the border for DDT residue? — Worried, El Centro
It does but we don't know how thoroughly they check the veggies.
Wash your produce no matter where it's grown. Microbes and chemicals are everywhere.

LET IT SNOW — When it snowed in Calexico in 1932, all the kids ran outside to throw snowballs. One of the Montejano brothers grabbed a handful of snow, by then melting and more mud than snow, to make a snowball. Everybody was jumping around.
The Montejano boy threw the snowball at a boy and hit his girlfriend, Lupe Arce, instead. It muddied her dress and knocked her cold. — Long Memory, Calexico
That does it, we're buying snow tires and some thermal underwear.
