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.

CALEXICO — Stressing that the killing of her husband was accidental, defendant Kym Cano told the court Monday that her children’s past testimony was mistaken. Cano also told prosecutor Marco Nuñez that her eldest daughter, Ashley Thuener, was wrong about what she saw and overheard regarding alleged threats the defendant made to Francisco Cano. Cano, who has pleaded not guilty to the charge of second-degree murder, was careful to refer to the fatal shooting of Francisco on Dec. 4, 2006, as an accident.

I’ve been wondering for some time now what exactly is the purpose of the cameras that are on top of almost every traffic light in El Centro? Are they actually recording or do they take pictures? Thank you for your help. — Wondering, El Centro We’ve answered this before while the cameras were in various stages of completion, but it bears revisiting now that the camera system has been fully installed and operating for about two months or more. The cameras you see atop every set of traffic lights the city maintains are for traffic synchronization, not for taking photographs or recording moving violators, El Centro senior city engineer John Gay said.

If there's one person who knows what it takes to run a non-profit youth-focused organization such as the El Centro Police Athletic League, it would be Ed Preciado. Recently named the new E.C. PAL director, Preciado has begun to reshape the organization, adding new programs in droves. “I worked for the Sheriff's Office for 25 years and I started the SAL (Sheriff's Athletic League) program, which went on for about seven years,” Preciado said. “I retired, saw this opening, and I just took it,” he said.

(MS) - Mother Nature has a temper, and she's taking it out on your lawn. From heat waves to rainstorms to drought, 2007 will go down as one of the wackiest weather years in history. Hundreds of communities broke or tied all-time high temperature records. Some parts of the country were soaked with too much rain; other areas suffered through devastating droughts. Usually unflappable New Yorkers were astonished to see a tornado touch down in Brooklyn. The odd weather put an extra amount of stress on many homeowners' lawns, leaving them brown, weakened and dying.

(MS) - Spring is here and the warm weather ushers in many new moments for being with friends and family, including Memorial Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and graduation parties. Although spring can be a festive time, there are many who may not be able to appreciate it to the fullest because they are reflecting on loved ones who are no longer around to celebrate.

For example, physically a person might cry, while psychologically a person might begin suffering silently by feeling depressed," said Lulu Orr, executive director of The Good Grief Center, a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit bereavement center aimed at helping people cope with grief.

With tears she cannot hold back, Carrie Walker Cruz reads an aged - but carefully preserved - newspaper article. It's about her dad, the late Bob Walker. The year was 1973, and he was driving on Highway 111 near the Coachella Valley area when a camper in front of him overturned and caught fire. Despite having suffered a grievous injury 10 years earlier that left him without a left knee, he managed to climb up on the cab and pull out a woman from the vehicle. But the fire spread quickly, and he could not reach a man trapped inside.
