One day a neighbor mentioned that his St. Augustine grass was being taken over by weeds. When I took a look at his lawn, I could see the rabbitsfoot grass patches and the sowthistle plants scattered here and there. I suggested part of the problem might be that the St. Augustine grass was growing under the mulberry trees and located in deep shade. I asked if any fertilizer had been applied to the lawn recently and the reply was Ironite was used a couple of weeks ago. I suggested that the neighbor use a "turfbuilder" type fertilizer to strengthen the growth of the lawn.

When Ed McGrew is asked about agriculture in the Valley, he's quick to say the overall agricultural economy here is “the best it's been crop by crop by crop.”  But the same can't be said about the local dairy industry or the country's dairy industry in general, said McGrew, a retired farmer and former board member of the Imperial Valley Vegetable Growers Association. In the last few years, he said, “many dairies, I couldn't say how many - maybe a dozen dairies throughout California - have gone out of business for economic reasons.” McGrew, also a former member of a committee in charge of attracting dairies to Imperial County, said he's pessimistic about the dairy industry, especially now that a local dairy shut down its operations in June.

Según los Centros para el Control y la Prevención de Enfermedades (CDC) la artritis totaliza un gasto anual de 128 mil millones de dólares, gran parte de los cuales se debe a reclamaciones por discapacidad. La artritis sigue siendo la causa más común de discapacidad, y tanto hombres como mujeres siguen siendo diagnosticados a niveles casi  asombrosos.

Staff Writer The time is 10 p.m. The day, Friday. It's cold; the wind gusty. A lone woman walks along Adams Avenue near 12th Street in El Centro. She is pacing in front of a liquor store ? waiting, watching. A pickup pulls up beside her; the driver looking for a little company. "Looking for a date?" the woman asks. For several hours Friday night and Saturday morning that scenario played out over and over again. The woman was one of three undercover officers taking part in an operation meant to strike at those soliciting the services of prostitutes and ultimately get some drugs and drug pushers off the streets.

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?

QUESTION: While clicking through my newly-subscribed-to HBO channel on TV, I was shocked to see a pornographic show that was hardcore and left nothing to the imagination. I thought pornography was against the law. I read all the time about people getting arrested for having pornographic materials. What?s going on? ? Disgusted, Imperial County. We?ve been longtime subscribers to HBO and can say with 100 percent certainty that there is no hardcore porn being shown there. Then again, maybe our definition of pornography differs from yours.

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.

Why is the building of the Holiday Inn at the corner of Highway 86 and Neckel Road taking so long? We who live nearby really hope this isn't going to be one of those unfinished buildings that we will have to look at forever. The new building going on in Brawley is almost complete and ready to open. The building in Imperial on the corner previously mentioned has been almost at the same level of being done for almost 1 1/2 years now. What is the complete story and when and if will it ever be opened?
