QUESTION: With the recent news that it snowed in Baghdad for the first time ever, is there, on record, a time when it snowed in the Valley? My father-in-law told me once that he did remember at least one time snowing in the Mexicali Valley when he was a kid; he was born in 1923. With the crazy weather around the world, I bet it will be just a matter of time when we do get snow here in the Valley. ? Let It Snow, El Centro. With global-warming a reality, we expect the Imperial Valley to be the next Big Bear in a couple hundred years.

Dateline: Calexico The Calexico downtown shoppers fill the sidewalks, some with their minds set only on shopping and others with the thought of stopping by to enjoy a cold drink and what seems to be a local favorite, Oasis hot dogs with all the fixings. A crowd gathers around the hot dog shop as the smell of weiners, chopped onions and chili beans tempts shoppers walking down Second Street as they stop by Oasis Root Beer in the 200 block of East Second Street. Eva Castro and Maria Luisa Chavarria, both from Calexico, are the two women at the helm making the hot dogs that people flock to buy. The unique thing about this hole-in-the-wall storefront is that there are no seats, and patrons take turns standing at a counter while they chow down.

Does a probation officer have the authority to enter a home through the back door without knocking?

Anonymous, Imperial County A probation officer does not have the authority to do that, and it is a violation of department policy if that did happen, Imperial County Chief Probation Officer Marty Krizay said.

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.

One of the most common citrus questions regards the best citrus varieties to plant in the low desert. Although our extreme heat, wind and occasional frosts limit our choices, there are many varieties that perform well under our conditions. Commercially, high quality early-season grapefruit, lemons, mandarins and Valencia oranges come from desert areas in California and Arizona and it is possible to successfully grow these trees in your home garden as well. > > Grapefruit For the red-fleshed grapefruit, there are several options.

There have been several reports about a “Ding Dong Ditcher” on the loose. The two areas that have suffered these attacks have been Brawley and Imperial. I say suffered because apparently this criminal is ringing doorbells as early as 3 a.m. For those of us who have to wake up early to go to work, this is disastrous. What can we do about this inconsiderate idiot that obviously has too much time on his/her hands? Oh … please don't suggest “the police.” - Tired, Imperial We're wondering whom we should contact, if we can't contact the police?

Recent trends suggest smartphones are changing how people live and work, and they are doing so at an accelerated pace. Four out of 10 people now own smartphones and 55 percent of those who purchased a new handset reported buying a smartphone instead of a regular phone, according to a Nielsen Company press release. This number is up from 34 percent a year ago, the same release states. Why some technologies are embraced while others are not depend on the benefit they provide, sociologist and San Diego State University Dean David Pearson said.

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.

So this business has been on Main Street for the past 30 years and suddenly  the city has decided that they no longer want that type of business there (adult store). Can the city do that? Why are they so worried suddenly? Is there someone interested in that venue that has some sort of influence? I mean Main Street is full of bars and night clubs all over already. They don't mind those. - Anonymous, Calexico UPDATE: We answered this Probe question somewhat in Wednesday's edition, going into some of the history of how zoning was changed in downtown El Centro that would eventually require the bookstore to be moved out of the area.

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. In a state by state assessment, extra precaution particularly at night was advised for northern Baja California including Mexicali and Tijuana, but no advisory is in effect for southern Baja California. For the one-year period ending in July 2012, the number of murders in Mexicali increased by 43 percent, from 127 in the preceding year to 181, according to the report with Tijuana showing 351 murders for the same year.

CALEXICO ? California's Department of Social Services has slapped CHARLEE Family Care Inc. with an accusation for revocation, a hefty lawsuit-like document that has to be filed with the state's Office of Administrative Hearings before state officials can shut down the "Birch Home," a group home for wayward girls. The home is managed by CHARLEE, a Yucaipa-based non-profit corporation. According to the DSS, CHARLEE administrators have employed a convicted felon at the Birch Home, exposed the girls to an unsafe and sometimes hostile environment, ignored citations for the aforementioned violations and attempted to intimidate girls who complained to state investigators, among other alleged administrative misdeeds.
