IMPERIAL - It is not often industrial development dovetails with agriculture, but a planned wastewater plant here can benefit all stakeholders. The plant could provide thousands of jobs and is slated in an urban corridor that will not infringe on crop fields or residential backyards, said Marlene Best, Imperial city manager. They considered three options of rebuilding the old plant, rebuilding in a new location here or building a plant north of the city that encourages economic development.

Dateline: Brawley For years, the building now known as Ciudad Plaza has been a part of this city's downtown, first as the Dunlack Hotel and later as both a commercial and residential facility. But the three-story Spanish colonial-style structure ? owned by Mulholland Land Co. of Los Angeles ? has fallen into disrepair because of poor maintenance, according to city officials. Other than showing signs of age, the outside of the building is in good condition, but the exterior belies what is inside.

Boxers from around the Valley met Saturday in the Westmorland Youth Center in a 10-bout boxing card hosted by the Westmorland BAD Boxing Club. "The crowd was large and really got into the fights and we are planning to stage another exhibition in January or February," said veteran youth trainer Ernie "Mono" Fierro of the Westmorland Boxers Against Drugs. The main event was scheduled to feature 16-year-old, 147-pounder Charley "Golden Boy" Romero of Westmorland BAD.

Staff Writer It's easy to forget what those who enforce the law risk while providing for the public's safety and protection. Most are proud to serve their communities and consider it their duty to put their lives on the line every day. California Highway Patrol Officer Jose Navarrete is one of those officers who loves his job and helping his community. Born in Mexicali, Navarrete did what many told him he couldn't do. He joined the Highway Patrol and has been a sworn officer for three years.

As one of the few Jews that work in the Valley I would like to give my opinion about ?Gestapo tactics.? Getting shoved, pistol butted, spat at, or getting jabbed by a bayonet are ?Gestapo tactics.? Not only physical abuse, but mental abuse as well. In previous letters to the I.V. Press editor I have stated that illegal immigration doesn?t bother me ? it?s the coyotes that do the smuggling and leave them for dead when the going gets tough. A fellow Jew, but a conservative, brought it to my attention that Europe has removed its borders and people from the European continent are allowed to go from country to country without the need of a passport.

I observed that for the past few weeks, there were a couple of dead dogs and a cat lying on the side of Austin Road and they had been there for several days. I want to know who or what public office is in charge of picking up dead dogs and cats on county roads? It’s a health hazard and source of diseases to let dead dogs or cats sit there until they decompose, not to mention the smell. — Grossed Out, Imperial We spoke with Imperial County Animal Control supervisor Daniel Torres through the Imperial County Public Health Department’s media spokespeople.

While driving down Main Street on Wednesday, I noticed that some of the flags were at half-staff and some weren't. The Post Office was at half-staff while the El Centro City Hall was not. The Police Department was at half-staff while the courthouse down the block wasn't. I would think that all government offices would be the same. I appreciate the flags being flown at half-staff in memory of the Boston bombing. - Patriot, El Centro  The authority to be able to fly the United States flag at half-staff resides with the president of the U.S., the individual state's governors and the mayor of Washington, D.C. The reason flags could be seen on Wednesday at half-staff was because of a presidential proclamation issued Tuesday in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on Monday.

Imperial County has the fourth-highest teen pregnancy rate among 58 counties in the state, and its rates for many sexually transmitted diseases are not much better. Officials credit these high rates to a lack of sexual education that teaches both abstinence and protection and access to reproductive health care in the county. ?If we did nothing else in Imperial County except provide comprehensive sexuality education in schools and assured every resident had access to affordable, confidential medical care, then we could solve this problem in a very short time,?
