It looks like you passed, because the state sent your certificates this week. If you had any felonies or serious misdemeanors in your past, you would not have been certificated, said Day Night manager Sergio Soto.
You still have one hurdle to pass. You must prove you are either a U.S. citizen or a legal resident, said Soto.
If you can't get off work to go to Day Night in Calexico, you can send your proof with a relative, who can pick up your certificates, he said.
NOTHING HAS CHANGED — There's nothing new about a sheriff's deputy getting a "driving under the influence" ticket and staying on the job.
I am a retired cop and I don't recall a deputy ever getting fired for a DUI arrest. Usually they don't get a ticket. Either they call the guy's wife or an officer drives him home.
In the case mentioned in PROBE, the deputy was drinking in Holtville. He made it all the way to El Centro before he had an accident. — Retired Cop, El Centro
Cops who look the other way when they stop legally impaired fellow officers are not doing their buddies any favors. Those minor incidents may be ignored or fixed.
But if a cop gets involved in a serious accident while driving under the influence, there will be a public demand for his head on a silver platter.
FREE COMPUTERS — Our school has some Apple computers, printers and software we are needing to get rid of due to lack of storage space. We would like to pass them on to a school, church or youth group or even to a facility in Mexico.
There are some good educational programs from K through 12 plus utility programs such as PrintShop. If you could use any of this and is willing to pick it up in Calipatria, call John Clark at Midway High School at 348-2430. — Sandi, Calipatria
