The 20-year-old Romo is excited about the upcoming season, even though it will take place across the country.

Several psychiatrists have said that Scott Peterson is a psychopath. A psychopath is NOT a psycho. He is not insane. He is conscienceless. At one time the psychopath was called a "moral degenerate. " Later he was renamed a "psychopath" and "sociopath. " Sociopath is the term I prefer to use. One noted psychologist, Hervey Cleckley, wrote what I believe to be the definitive (early) study of social pathology. He titled that book "The Mask of Sanity. " A more modern psychiatrist calls sociopaths "Human Chameleons.

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.

As one of the few Jews that work in the Valley I would like to give my opinion about ?Gestapo tactics.? Getting shoved, pistol butted, spat at, or getting jabbed by a bayonet are ?Gestapo tactics.? Not only physical abuse, but mental abuse as well. In previous letters to the I.V. Press editor I have stated that illegal immigration doesn?t bother me ? it?s the coyotes that do the smuggling and leave them for dead when the going gets tough. A fellow Jew, but a conservative, brought it to my attention that Europe has removed its borders and people from the European continent are allowed to go from country to country without the need of a passport.

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.
