How many times do I have to go around Bucklin Park to complete a mile? - Exerciser, El Centro As a general rule, we've always heard and been told by friends and associates that Bucklin Park is a half-mile loop if you walk the outside-edge path one time. So, make that outside loop twice, and you've got one mile. When we started jogging, we found some Web sites that allowed us to map our routes so we knew how far we were traveling. We did that with Bucklin Park, and the word-of-mouth was true.

“Ratatouille” has long been out of theaters, but county residents who go to a local movie house may still get to see a rodent. There have been issues with rodents at the Cinemark at the Imperial Valley Mall, said Imperial County Environmental Health Deputy Director Jeff Lamoure. A complaint came in Oct. 22, said Lamoure, when a person reported having a rodent gnawing on a hot dog. On Oct. 24 a county health inspector visited the theater and found rodent feces in and around it, Lamoure said, but nothing was observed in the food preparation areas.

I had a layaway plan at Kmart. I couldn't pay it so Kmart was supposed to cancel it and only charge me $10. By the time it was canceled, the cashier was handing me a receipt - which I refused to even touch - in my hand totaling $6 and some cents. I had paid around $38 to put a TV on layaway. I was charged $30 in penalties for the cancellation. I lost my job last September, and have had to make some changes in my lifestyle. I was counting on at least a $25 refund. This isn't right.

What's up with the long wait for IHSS service? There are disabled and elderly people awaiting services for in-home care, and Social Services do not respond to a person's needs. They take months to process an application and several months to pay a caregiver. Aren't there state-mandated time frames to process an application? I don't think that it is right. Would you like to work for free? - Concerned citizen, Heber The short answer is yes, there is a state-mandated timeline for the application process, but there are a variety of issues that go into how the applications are handled.

As a New Year resolution I want to start to eat healthier and organic. I noticed the lack of Trader Joe’s or other organic food stores. I know I can find some at Vons, but I also know that they have had problems with their “free-range beef.” I don’t know how reliable Vons or other supermarkets are. Do I really have to do my grocery shopping in San Diego or Palm Desert? — Wanting to Eat Organically, Brawley First off, we’re not entirely sure what you’re referring to when you mention Vons and problems with “free-range beef.

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.

Sanders, Efrain Silva, and challenger Jason Jackson were the leading vote getters for the three seats up for election for the El Centro City Council, according to the latest unofficial election results. A total 6,349 votes from 25 precincts were counted, but these are only preliminary results as a significant number of provisional and absentee ballots have yet to be counted. “This is a small race,” said county elections coordinator Debra Porter, adding she expects official results in five to 10 days.

The stab wounds on a man?s hands told a story, one he wasn?t willing to share. Dolly Rose Villalon, his nurse at Pioneers Memorial Hospital, already knew the story. While Villalon treated the man, his wife was being arrested and charged with assaulting her husband. It was almost an injustice to Villalon, but her personal feelings and judgments had to stay at the door. She thought the woman acted in self-defense and the stabbing was justified. What Villalon also knew was the woman said she had been sexually assaulted a few days earlier by her own husband.
