HEBER - Martha Gonzalez would take her morning walks along the canal near Pitzer Road and recalls seeing the sunrise and the sky filled with colors. “It was a wonderful thing that you can't see in cities anymore,” she said in Spanish. But the last time she had her walk and got near her house on Meridian Street, she saw trash under trees on the empty lot. “I imagine people dump trash at night,” she said. The empty lot on Pitzer Road and Meridian Street, where Heber ends, has become an eyesore for many residents like Gonzalez and her neighbor Irma Partida.

Community pride and good times were the order of the day Saturday morning when more than 50 volunteers from a number of Valley community groups turned out to help clean a stretch of Dogwood Road in Heber. The event, coordinated by the Imperial County Sheriff's Office and made possible by donations from area businesses, is part of the community policing program within the ICSO, said Lt. Scott Sheppeard. Volunteers divided into two groups, with one group painting over graffiti and another group picking up trash and clearing brush.

HEBER - On any given day, at around noon, senior citizen Gloria Seigmond finishes her household chores and sits to watch television while her husband, Hugo, reads.  But this Monday was different, meaning the Seigmonds moved away from their routine and instead went to the Sacred Heart Catholic Church to be part of the first of many senior luncheons to be held here. “It's a balanced meal,” said Hugo Seigmond in Spanish as he set up his punch line. “The only thing that was missing was fried pork in the sandwich,” he said, and everyone at his table laughed.
