I would like to bring to the public's attention an incident that recently happened, which I feel needs to be recognized. On June 18, my family and I were recreating on the Colorado River. Around 11 a.m., my 13-year-old grandson Brock Lankford received a head injury while attempting to do a handstand on a skip board, falling into a sandbar and cutting his head when it struck a clam. I knew it was an injury that would require stitches, so my son, grandson and I headed down river to Squaw Lake to get my truck and take my grandson to the hospital.

The maternal grandmother of Jaryd Atadero, Irma McKissick of Brawley, wasn't relieved ? as she expected to be ? when a search party found a skull fragment and a tooth on a precarious slope above the Big South Trail near Fort Collins, Colo., on the climb where her grandson Jaryd went missing more than three years ago. Jaryd's father, Allyn Atadero, former athletic director at Calexico's De Anza Junior High School, has told Denver-area media outlets he thinks the fragments are the remains of his son. The Larimer County coroner's office said it could take three to four months to analyze DNA tests.

A spotted pony, giant bull mastiff and camera-shy dachshund named “Weiner Dog” were just some of the animals crowds of children admired at the petting zoo of the 31st annual Children and Parent Council’s Children’s Fair at Bucklin Park on Saturday. The petting zoo, a crowd favorite, consisted of two sections. On the right side of the attraction various puppies, doggies and kittens from Dee Forbey’s Man’s Best Friend service enamored children while many also gazed in awe at a rooster, pony, calf, goats and pot-bellied pig of Marsha Boutwell’s Animals Plus Therapeutic Riding on the left.

The point of a county fair is, of course, agriculture, but not everyone is a farmer, a future farmer or a friend of a farmer. For many of us, the fair is about fried food, rides and concerts. While the former has kept up with the times (check out your waistlines, Imperial Valley), the latter for going on more than a decade has been either lacking in diversity, quality, frequency or all of the above. For the first time in a long time, though, I?m genuinely excited about going to the fair to see some of the artists and groups I?

Forget the melting pot vision of America; for the Fourth of July, cultural exchange is getting roasted on the grill. ?Whenever someone says barbecue in the Valley, they almost always mean carne asada,? Emilio Ulloa said. A Valley native who teaches psychology at San Diego State University, Ulloa said he can remember carne asada and summer going hand-in-hand. The link is unique to the Imperial Valley, he said, as even a couple of hours away in San Diego, carne asada is not as closely linked to barbecuing as it is here.

Ariel Jutras is typical of most Imperial Valley teens in that she thinks there isn?t a whole lot to do locally. ?Here in the Valley, there are a couple things to do,? Ariel, a 17-year-old Central Union High School senior, said. ?There are activities for students such as PAL and school activities. ?We also have places like the mall that are fun to hang out with friends,? she said. ?There?s also Glamis, but other than that there?s not really anything to do.?

I have visited Fig Lagoon off Derrick Road for several years. It is a beautiful place to watch birds and to view the most outstanding sunrises and sunsets. There are concrete benches and even a trash can. Recently, the place has become a dumping area. The trash can is never emptied. I called the county and they said it was up to the Imperial Irrigation District. I called IID and no response. We should value the beautiful places we have and keep them clean. Who is responsible for up-keep to Fig Lagoon viewing area?

BRAWLEY ? The cul-de-sac was roped off with yellow caution tape. Neighbors and friends who stood on the edges of the barrier cutting through this tidy middle-class neighborhood here looked worried, sad, confused. Law enforcement officials say it appears a domestic dispute between two well-known locals ended in the murder of one and the suicide of another. Around 6 p.m. Tuesday, Rodney Arterberry, 39, a county Sheriff's Office deputy, allegedly shot his estranged wife, Schondalawn Arterberry, while she sat in her car in front of their Eucalyptus Avenue home.

Oxygen requires a prescription in California. Why is a weight loss clinic on Main Street in El Centro advertising an oxygen bar? Are they breaking the law? -- Wondering, Imperial   We couldn't recall or find a weight loss center on Main with an oxygen bar, and at least one source we spoke with thinks the business isn't there anymore. So, forgive us if we miss this one entirely. But there is a larger issue here, and that is that trendy oxygen bars, which aren't really so trendy anymore, are trouble to properly regulate in our opinion.

If Irene B. Rios were alive today, her mother said she would have liked the event held Thursday afternoon in her honor. Elisabet Rios said she will always remember her daughter's laugh, whether it was with family, friends or at work. Irene loved her job with the Imperial County Probation Department and she was determined to help others through work, Elisabet said. “It is not how Irene died that made her a hero,” Elisabet said. “It is how she lived.” Irene B. Rios' life was celebrated Thursday as friends, family, co-workers and state officials gathered to dedicate a portion of a highway to the late deputy probation officer.

IMPERIAL - Martha Garcia never expected to earn a doctorate degree, yet now that she has she could not be happier. “I am the first of my family to go to college,” Garcia, a coordinator and counselor at Imperial Valley College said. “My mother went to school up until ninth grade and my father went up to sixth. For me to get to this point is something that I never imagined because just earning my bachelors was more than enough.” Garcia, who earned her doctorate degree in Educational Leadership: Community College/Post Secondary from San Diego State University, did so while raising her son and maintaining a full-time job. “It was extremely difficult, I don't know how I did it,” Garcia, a single-mother, said.
