BRAWLEY - City officials expressed mixed feelings about a halfway house for federal prison inmates scheduled to open within the next few months. The residential re-entry center has been contracted to provide housing for about two dozen inmates as they seek to transition back into society. The federal Bureau of Prisons decided on establishing an RRC in the Valley some three years ago, said an official with the company contracted to run the facility, Anaheim-based Working Alternatives Inc.

As we journey through the avenues of life we are confronted with a society of emulators. Is it because we want to be someone other then ourselves, so we find it more pleasing to emulate a neighbor, relative, co-worker or a character in a television program that we frequently watch?

BRAWLEY ? A piece of local history died Wednesday when a wind-whipped fire tore through the two-story home known popularly to many residents as the ?Smurf House.? Flames charred the wood-shingled roof of the mushroom-shaped structure and blackened portions of its curved sides as firefighters used a water cannon to fight the blaze. Heavy winds complicated efforts to keep smoldering embers from reaching nearby homes but firefighters contained the fire within the parameters of the property at 955 H St. The Smurf House, which took homeowner Rudy Lopez 25 years to construct and was inspired by the small blue TV cartoon characters, was destroyed.

The thornless hybrid mesquite is nearly the perfect tree for the desert. The mesquites are exceptionally well-adapted to the area and will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions and varying irrigation regimens. And they may be grown alone in full sun or in groups to make a more tropical jungle-like appearance. The mesquites are easy to recognize as they have rich, dark brown trunks and bright medium to dark green canopies. Some say the mesquites provide the appearance of the Serengeti African plains.
