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. Starting in January one of several laws takes effect in California. SB1317, sponsored by state Sen. Mark Leno, D-San Francisco, will charge parents with a misdemeanor if their children miss too much school. Parents could face a $2,000 fine and up to a year in jail if prosecutors prove they failed to reasonably encourage their children to attend school.

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. Tyler Sanders, 29, and Kyle Cameron, 24, both of Brawley, and Christian Pineda, 26, of Tijuana, have opened their restaurant, Los Tacos No. 1, to rave reviews and daily long lines in New York City's Chelsea Market. 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.

Staff Writer The time is 10 p.m. The day, Friday. It's cold; the wind gusty. A lone woman walks along Adams Avenue near 12th Street in El Centro. She is pacing in front of a liquor store ? waiting, watching. A pickup pulls up beside her; the driver looking for a little company. "Looking for a date?" the woman asks. For several hours Friday night and Saturday morning that scenario played out over and over again. The woman was one of three undercover officers taking part in an operation meant to strike at those soliciting the services of prostitutes and ultimately get some drugs and drug pushers off the streets.

The thornless hybrid mesquite is nearly the perfect tree for the desert. The mesquites are exceptionally well-adapted to the area and will tolerate a wide range of soil conditions and varying irrigation regimens. And they may be grown alone in full sun or in groups to make a more tropical jungle-like appearance. The mesquites are easy to recognize as they have rich, dark brown trunks and bright medium to dark green canopies. Some say the mesquites provide the appearance of the Serengeti African plains.

Staff Writer Dateline: CALEXICO A ferocious safety who played through pain most of his career. A quarterback who bonded with his 1960s-era teammates and the community, forming a unique familial unit that has provided comfort in a time of need.

When Calexico High School's class of 2002 is inducted into the Imperial Valley Football Coaches Association Hall of Fame on Friday, the names of the three aforementioned Bulldogs, five others and a coach will be called.

I went to Subway the other day to buy two footlongs. I wanted one toasted and was told by the employee that Subway now charges to have a footlong toasted. My question is, why? 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.

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.

Albert Salgado is arguably a lucky man. At 71 years of age, the Calexico resident has been cancer-free for 17 years, and credits something far more elemental than modern medicine for his cure: faith. The retired U.S. Customs agent started losing his voice in late 1994. What he initially thought was simply a sore throat was, in reality, a tumor in his left vocal chord. If there was one thing that was positive, it is that doctors identified the cancer in an early stage. They moved quickly and removed the tumor surgically.

SLAB CITY - There are things at Slab City Prom that one would find at any prom, including corsages, cheesy prom portraits and a king and queen coronation. 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.
