Don't be surprised if you're walking in New York City and you run into a special quesadilla that tastes just like the ones from the Imperial Valley.

While none of them formally studied culinary arts, all three have seemed to crack the New York City restaurant code with their handmade tortillas, simple menu, low prices and authentic styling.

CALEXICO - Christina Uriarte moved to a home right across the street from the Santo Tomas swap meet a year ago. She is moving out soon though and said the heavy traffic in the neighborhood contributed to her decision. “It's always a concern on the weekends. I actually have to park my car outside (on the street) to make sure I don't get blocked in,” she said. “It was highly unpleasant to see all that traffic in front of my home. Getting in and out on the weekends was a nightmare.” Uriarte said the heavy traffic lasts from early morning until about 1:30 p.m. on the weekends.

QUESTION: While clicking through my newly-subscribed-to HBO channel on TV, I was shocked to see a pornographic show that was hardcore and left nothing to the imagination. I thought pornography was against the law. I read all the time about people getting arrested for having pornographic materials. What?s going on? ? Disgusted, Imperial County. We?ve been longtime subscribers to HBO and can say with 100 percent certainty that there is no hardcore porn being shown there. Then again, maybe our definition of pornography differs from yours.

I had the worst experience in La Hacienda Restaurant in Imperial. My buddy and his friend called me to meet them at the restaurant for lunch. I went there with my iced tea in hand that I had bought earlier that morning and sat inside ready to order. My friends were already eating when the waiter arrived and loudly and rudely yelled out, “We don't allow outside drinks here.” All the customers and my friends heard this, and before I could finish my sentence he walked away and then proceeded to ignore me the entire lunch without offering me something to drink or even a menu.

Holtville area resident Dahlia Fernandes isn’t afraid to admit she’s scared to use water around her property. Her plants are dying, there’s a film of grit on her sink, and she’s getting blood work done as a precaution, she said. The water still holds that sour smell from last week’s pesticide contamination. “I’m scared,” she said. “I’m just very concerned, and I’m praying to God.” Water from the Alamo Canal south of Holtville was found to be contaminated last week, and the Imperial County Agri­cultural Commissioner’s Office confirmed the presence of metam-sodium this week.

July 11 may not ever become as momentous as other Mexican holidays, but for beer enthusiasts like Francisco Nuñez, the date is worthy of remembrance. “It was like our beer independence day,” Nuñez, of Mexicali-based 686 Cervecería, said. “July 11 is going to be remembered for years to come by Mexican craft breweries.” On that historic date, Mexican federal officials opened up the tightly controlled beer market, and put a cap on the number of exclusive contracts its major brewers - Grupo Modelo and Cuahtémoc Moctezuma - could hold.

Cattle Call Rodeo tickets went on sale today at noon in Brawley. Though tickets have been available online since August, the ticketing office at the Imperial Valley Press building on South Plaza Street opened today. Presale tickets are $14 for the reserve sections and $7 for general admission. Tickets will also be sold at the arena during the event, though the price goes up to $17 for the reserved section and $10 for general admission. The rodeo will be held November 13 and 14, with events going on almost every night leading up to it. While tickets are available at the arena, the rodeo has been almost sold out in past years, so there's no guarantee of having extra tickets to sell on the days of the rodeo, said Chairman of the Cattle Call Board Danny Williams.
