Rather than simply attack his opponent, I would like Andy Horne to tell us exactly what he has done for us, the public, as an IID director. I would like him to address the following in his advertisements rather than attacking his opponent: How does the Quantification Settlement Agreement benefit the Imperial Valley? How is the QSA in the Valley?s best interest? Why did you vote against the QSA after negotiating it? Why are the Brawley and Calexico IID offices closed? Why is there a $400-million deficit and how do you plan to fix it?

Five Calipatria State Prison workers were injured Tuesday afternoon after 30 to 40 inmates attacked them outside one of the housing facilities. The prison was on a modified program - only allowing for minimal movements around the facility - Tuesday evening after four correctional officers and one sergeant were hurt in “an unprovoked attack,” Administrative Lt. Jorge J. Santana said. An officer had been doing a search in front of one of the housing units about 2:15 p.m. when the inmates were being called back to their cells, and one inmate swung around and started to hit the officer.

El Centro police are investigating a stabbing that occurred today in the area of 17th Street and Scott Avenue, an official said. A witness reported at about 3:40 p.m. that a man was attacked at the location, said El Centro Police Cmdr. Eddie Madueno. The victim whose identity was not immediately available was taken to an area hospital by someone and was being interviewed by El Centro Police detectives, Madueno said. No one was arrested for the crime, Madueno said. It's too early whether the case is being investigated as an attempted homicide or if it is gang-related until detectives gather all the details from the stab victim, Madueno said.

Imperial County sheriff?s authorities are beefing up their patrols in Heber following an attack on two joggers last week by several assailants the victims cannot identify, a sergeant said Wednesday. As a result, said sheriff?s investigative Sgt. Miguel Leon, there are no arrests in the Dec. 4 attack that occurred at a park near the new residential development west of Dogwood Road.

Several years ago I wrote that, “Why should foreign terrorists cross our southern/Mexican border, risking their life in our deserts or our canals/rivers? They fly in with student, tourist and work visas.” I added, “And why would they smuggle in a dirty bomb? They can buy here the materials to make one; at a lower cost and better parts too.” I also mentioned that some of the 9/11 terrorists entered from Canada. Now the Congress, the FBI and the media are asking/looking into the oversight of those over-stayed visas.

It was very disturbing to read Probe last week in regard to Brawley's Measure S. It is not the actual measure that upsets me; it was the personal attack on the family mentioned in the article. I feel the person who submitted the verbal attack is heartless, cruel and probably does not have children. If you don't favor the measure, that's your right, but do not attack the family and their children. Furthermore, that family has given (donated) greatly to our community. I know that to be fact.

Ali Dahdoul did not tell recruiters he had a religion when he enlisted in the Marines. “I did not want to deal with questions, but I'll be open if anybody asks,” he said. Dahdoul is Muslim, and like many Americans, he clearly remembers the 9/11 attacks. “I was in junior high. It was a school day. My dad was plastered to the TV. I didn't know what was going on,” he said. Nineteen terrorists affiliated with al-Qaida hijacked four airliners on the morning of Sept.

I miss my attackers.    No, I'm not referring to those nameless, faceless snipers who used to post their online comments on this column until that noxious behavior was nixed recently by the people running this newspaper. Honestly, I stopped reading such cowardice years ago. What I am talking about are my brave little attackers, who, despite weighing 1/180th of what I weigh, would come screeching and swooping at my head, talons bared, all in an attempt to protect their babies.
