On Valentine's Day, travelers may wish to bring flowers with them from Mexico into the United States. U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials want residents and visitors to know what to expect when they cross the border. Chrysanthemums, gladiolas and orange jasmine from Mexico are prohibited through the passenger ports of entry, according to a press release from Customs and Border Protection. So travelers cannot bring arrangements with those flowers into the country through a passenger port of entry, like the Calexico border crossing.

She immediately got on the defense by saying she had just cleaned out the refrigerator last week. Then I found the potent item causing the bad stench. It was a bag of broccoli that I had placed next to a cantaloupe. Immediately I knew that it was my fault for allowing ethylene gas (a ripening agent) coming from the melon to fume onto broccoli.

Heber resident Tito Herrera is in what he has explained as the long process of trying to modify his home loan. He is not behind on his payments, but because he is a small-business owner in a tough economy, he is trying to save money any way he can. Herrera?s mortgage payment is $1,829 per month, which includes his property taxes and community facility district taxes. If Herrera?s home was not in a community facility district, he would have paid $64 less a month during fiscal 2008-2009.
