“The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate to the stormy present.” — Abraham Lincoln Businesswoman, mother and widow Heidi Kuhn is president of KF Dairy and a partner of Imperial Valley Cheese, the only producer of Swiss and Muenster cheese in California. And yet, her career accomplishments came with a painful price — the loss of her beloved husband Jim Kuhn, the father of their young children. In the five years following Jim’s tragic and untimely death, Kuhn has pushed through her grief to continue the Valley agriculture business ventures her husband boldly founded so many years ago. But more significantly, she is a loving mother to their son and daughter, attempting to instill a sense of their father’s presence and perpetual love for them.

MEXICALI — With details that echo Jack the Ripper, Mexicali officials are investigating a possible serial killer or killers targeting area prostitutes for years. About 44 murders of women here since 2008 appear to have enough similarities to potentially be the result of a serial killer or killers, said Alfredo Arenas Moreno, Baja California Estate Police chief officer in charge of the international liaison unit. While the Baja California Attorney General’s Office here is officially in charge of the investigation, updates on the investigation are regularly provided to police.

When will population sign be updated? When are they going to update the population count on the city limit signs as you enter El Centro from the north and on Interstate 8 east and west? I've lived here all my life and the sign has it at 32,000. That was the count in 1990, 22 years ago. - E.T., El Centro It's always the seemingly easiest questions that are the most difficult to answer. We called El Centro Public Works Director and Engineer Terry Hagen last week, and he had no idea whether this was the city's responsibility or the state Department of Transportation's responsibility considering the signs are on Caltrans rights of way on Interstate 8 or Highway 86. After getting in contact with Caltrans, a spokesman there also had to do some research and get back to us. It turns out, Caltrans and cities work as a team to update these signs.

Last weekend we were heading up to San Diego when we approached the Border Patrol checkpoint on Interstate 8. The checkpoint was quite busy and both lanes were open. What was extremely unusual was with the Border Patrol agent who was questioning the travelers. This Border Patrol agent was wearing a cowboy hat. It looked quite distasteful and unprofessional to say the least. I got a good look at the cowboy hat and it clearly did not appear to be government issued. Does the Border Patrol allow its agents to wear cowboy hats?

According to friends and acquaintances there are more positive things to growing older than negative things. One of the first to come to mind is that most seniors are quicker to forgive and forget.  1. A group of women out to lunch isn't embarrassed when changing tables three times before ordering. Valid reasons for this are that the spot is too drafty, the music is too loud, the adjoining table has noisy guests, or the view is bad. 2. Seniors are happy to get home early. They like hearing the words, “in conclusion.” 3. Seniors have no problem wearing clunky shoes with all their outfits.

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.

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.

Desert gardeners will find few plants as hardy and beautiful as oleander, Nerium oleander L. Oleanders thrive in our irrigated desert landscape as these evergreen shrubs or small trees are native to the Mediterranean regions of southern Europe and southwest Asia. Oleander has been cultivated in North America since 1565 and its popularity in the southern tier of the United States continues today because of its bountiful flowering habit. Plants tolerant to heat, drought and salt are important for our area; oleander is all of these.
