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?

Story by HEATHER BREMNER, Photos by KEVIN MARTY, Staff A woman in white standing in the window of an abandoned building. A little girl waiting near the doorway of an old El Centro home. A cache of bones churned up while digging a canal. Every town has its ghost stories: stories of restless souls, children who died tragically, people murdered by the hand of a loved one. Their spirits must be searching for something, some say. They cannot rest in peace until they settle some score.

I asked the employee and she didn’t have an answer. Are they going to charge for baking your bread, too? Is the oven contracted by some other company? What gives? Money is not the issue, just curiosity. I think it sounds ridiculous? — Soft and Doughy, El Centro We chose to answer this question as an example of the public’s blatant abuse of PROBE.
