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.

BRAWLEY — Burger King has leased property near the Wal-Mart Supercenter here, City Manager Gary Burroughs said. The property is owned by Wal-Mart and located on the southeast corner of Highway 86 and Wildcat Drive. The fast food chain has submitted a site plan to the city that will be reviewed at the design review committee meeting Thursday.

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.

The first occasion was a gentleman in his early 20s who paid for a couple of miscellaneous food items and a 12-pack with an EBT card meant for food assistance. The second occasion was last Sunday when a young woman paid for miscellaneous food items and a three-pack of 16-ounce cans of beer. This means, we, the taxpayers who get up every morning to go to work, are paying for beer for these individuals who receive food assistance.
