One day a neighbor mentioned that his St. Augustine grass was being taken over by weeds. When I took a look at his lawn, I could see the rabbitsfoot grass patches and the sowthistle plants scattered here and there. I suggested part of the problem might be that the St. Augustine grass was growing under the mulberry trees and located in deep shade. I asked if any fertilizer had been applied to the lawn recently and the reply was Ironite was used a couple of weeks ago. I suggested that the neighbor use a "turfbuilder" type fertilizer to strengthen the growth of the lawn.

To get a career a young person needs an education, Bill Cole, a driver’s education instructor at Central Union High School in El Centro says. “Parents should be sure their students are in school and doing their best,” Cole said.

Leadership is gained by dedicating oneself toward the resolution of a commonly held goal and it can certainly be said that Frances Felix dedicated many years of leadership to Calexico CSEA Chapter No. 399 and Calexico Unified School District. I first met Frances in the late 1980s when I began working for Calexico Unified. Frances was a strong union woman to her core; she never hesitated to speak her mind frankly whether it was during district negotiation sessions or controversial chapter meetings.

There was even a wayward guest passed out near the stage area. However, some Slab City prom-goers arrived on mules instead of in limos, guests ranged in age from 2 to 80-something years old, and in between lace and chiffon dresses, one couple inexplicably dressed as vampires Saturday night. “There's nothing like it. It's a place where people, oddballs and real people come and share a night,” Slabs resident Neil Mallich said.
