How many times do I have to go around Bucklin Park to complete a mile? - Exerciser, El Centro As a general rule, we've always heard and been told by friends and associates that Bucklin Park is a half-mile loop if you walk the outside-edge path one time. So, make that outside loop twice, and you've got one mile. When we started jogging, we found some Web sites that allowed us to map our routes so we knew how far we were traveling. We did that with Bucklin Park, and the word-of-mouth was true.

Question: My Indian laurel tree is constantly dropping leaves. Is this normal? Is there any way to stop it? Answer: It is normal for laurels to drop leaves, especially when the trees are under the heat and moisture stress that occurs each summer. It is difficult for a large 50-foot tall laurel to take up the hundreds of gallons of water per day that are transpired through the leaves. Question: What is the best kind of tree to plant in Imperial Valley for shade? Answer: This question is asked more often than any other.

Hunting season is coming up on us fast. I haven't seen anything about hunting classes. Do you know when the hunting classes are? My son wants to get his license this year before dove season. - Dad, Brawley We usually get e-mails sent to us asking us to let the community know about hunter safety course class schedules. We haven't seen any this year, or for the past few years. When we do get them, we noticed there seem to be fewer every year. We imagine that is the cost of operating in California.

I had the worst experience in La Hacienda Restaurant in Imperial. My buddy and his friend called me to meet them at the restaurant for lunch. I went there with my iced tea in hand that I had bought earlier that morning and sat inside ready to order. My friends were already eating when the waiter arrived and loudly and rudely yelled out, “We don't allow outside drinks here.” All the customers and my friends heard this, and before I could finish my sentence he walked away and then proceeded to ignore me the entire lunch without offering me something to drink or even a menu.
