IMPERIAL - For Albert De Alva, a person needs three things to fix up a lowrider car: time, money and patience. And once a car is fixed, it has to be operable; it has to run, said the Pomona resident Saturday while gazing at “El Rey,” his shining 1963 Chevy Impala with a Corvette engine that attracted the attention of every single person who walked by it. One of those who stayed looking at “El Rey” was Brawley resident George Hernandez....

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.

CALEXICO ? Already upset over stalled contract negotiations, police officers here have picked a new fight with City Hall. In a lawsuit filed in federal court last month, the Calexico Police Officers Association argues members are owed back pay for the time it takes them to put on and take off their uniforms. Suiting up for work is a vital and time-consuming part of a cop?s job, the argument goes, so officers are entitled to compensation. Police officers across the state, including in San Diego and Los Angeles, have filed similar claims, now commonly referred to as ?

Whether you believe in ghosts or not, people all around the Valley have their own tales of spooky experiences. Calexico resident Chuy Iniguez used to work the graveyard shift with Imperial Irrigation District on the All-American Canal. One night he looked down the bank and saw several people walking. “I got scared, blinked twice and started walking to where the people were supposed to be, but they weren't there,” he said. “I used to get scared, but after the first five years working there, I got used to it. You see all this stuff and aren't sure if it's your mind playing tricks.

Getting into the Ultimate Fighting Championship ring of contenders is no easy task. The logic in mixed martial arts circles is to first black belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu; next is to join an MMA circuit, find a trainer, and finally make a name for oneself. It's this last step that Imperial native Marcos Andrew Navarro found himself in all last year, with thousands of miles in airfare spent chasing after the UFC dream. “Within the last year, I competed in several places here in the U.S., including Texas and Las Vegas,” Navarro said.

What do these two ratings (SEER and EER) mean and how do they relate to each other? SEER stands for seasonal energy efficiency rating . It?s a benchmark of how much electricity a given A/C system uses to deliver each ton or Btu/h of cooling power compared to another one under a standard, fixed set of rating conditions.  This benchmark system is managed by the Department of Energy, and they decide what the testing standards are.  The higher the SEER number is, the higher the score the system has received on the D.O.E.

Several psychiatrists have said that Scott Peterson is a psychopath. A psychopath is NOT a psycho. He is not insane. He is conscienceless. At one time the psychopath was called a "moral degenerate. " Later he was renamed a "psychopath" and "sociopath. " Sociopath is the term I prefer to use. One noted psychologist, Hervey Cleckley, wrote what I believe to be the definitive (early) study of social pathology. He titled that book "The Mask of Sanity. " A more modern psychiatrist calls sociopaths "Human Chameleons.

Through the 1980s, MTV defined a generation. Through the 1990s, it chartered new ground. And now, 25 years later, MTV is having the kind of effect on a generation that it did when it first aired ? kind of. Launched in 1981, Music Television recently turned 25 years old, but did so not so much with a bang, but rather with an attentionless thud. ?MTV didn?t even celebrate its 25th anniversary,? said Robert J.

Cattle Call Rodeo tickets went on sale today at noon in Brawley. Though tickets have been available online since August, the ticketing office at the Imperial Valley Press building on South Plaza Street opened today. Presale tickets are $14 for the reserve sections and $7 for general admission. Tickets will also be sold at the arena during the event, though the price goes up to $17 for the reserved section and $10 for general admission. The rodeo will be held November 13 and 14, with events going on almost every night leading up to it. While tickets are available at the arena, the rodeo has been almost sold out in past years, so there's no guarantee of having extra tickets to sell on the days of the rodeo, said Chairman of the Cattle Call Board Danny Williams.
