Valley residents who regularly travel to Mexico say they simply exercise caution and common sense down here, undeterred by a U.S. Department of State's November travel warning to some parts of Mexico.

Some cool off by heading to the beaches of Ensenada or San Diego or maybe the river in Yuma, but others have been splashing around the lesser-known Rio Hardy for decades. The water sport oasis is about 35 to 45 minutes south of Mexicali on the way to San Felipe and boasts a secluded and peaceful area to enjoy activities such as water skiing, boating, wakeboarding and more. Land along Rio Hardy is privately owned by about four or five people, and more than 95 percent of the shoreline properties are rented out by U.S. citizens primarily from California and Arizona, said Omar Dipp Nuñez, general director of Comité de Turismo y Convenciones de Mexicali.

Before 6 a.m. Sept. 1 the resounding reports of shotguns will fill the air near fields as dove-hunting season opens. The season will start on a Wednesday, though the local Fish and Game Commission has discussed alternative starting dates. The county Fish and Game Commission had discussions about moving the hunting season opening to Labor Day weekend, but it was only discussion, said Warden Greg Verbrugge. The change is not a decision that can be made by a local jurisdiction, as the season’s opening day is set by the federal Fish and Wildlife Service and adopted by the state.

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.

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.
