BRAWLEY - Danny DuBose has several fond memories from his time working as a projectionist at the Brawley Theatre, from a Hollywood-styled film premiere to meeting Mel Brooks while on a trip with the owner of the theater. “The owner at the time, Ted Chapman, had worked on this small film and some of the stars came down for the premiere,” DuBose said during a telephone interview. The film was not a big hit, but nonetheless Hollywood actors stepped foot on the red carpet at the local theater.

BRAWLEY - City officials here are looking to the future and revitalization of the downtown area now that the dust of the most recent fire to hit the locale has settled. While correcting much of the fire-related damages in the area rests on the shoulders of the privately owned and fire-affected businesses, City Manager Rosanna Bayon Moore assures the city is doing what it can to rebuild “the heart of the city.” Progress reports documenting what steps businesses have taken since the string of fires are presented to City Council members on a weekly basis and the city continues to pressure for cleanup, Moore said.

Who is paying for the big messup at Ed Wiest Field in Brawley? A certain person in our community is out there trying to put in a sprinkler system. He had his ranch hands working, they were using a trencher to dig the trenches for the pipe and cut every major electrical line in the whole field. Not just one but all of them. So now the city has hired Stills Electric to come in and splice these lines. Splice, not replace. So in a few years the water will get to them and they will then have to be replaced.

As a regular Brawley City Council meeting attendee and concerned citizen, I'm a bit suspicious about the selection process for police chief. Is the Brawley process going to be as corrupt as that of Calexico? All indications would support this conclusion. At the council meeting of May 21, citizens were told the city wanted to select the best-qualified candidate to head the department. A total of $3,000 was going to be spent in placing ads across the state to seek the most-qualified candidates.
