Smiling and red-nosed from the cool breeze, Gabriel Herrera hugged his sister and prepared for a ride. Sitting together on a neon plastic sled, Gabriel and Leila took their first venture down a snow covered hill. The hill was actually made up of hay bales. Squealing all the way down, Gabriel, of Calexico, threw his hands into the air as if he were riding a roller coaster. ?I think it?s really cool. It?s the first time I?ve actually seen snow,? Gabriel, 8, said. ?

QUESTION: I understand the Family Resource Centers in Brawley, El Centro and Niland will close June 30. Who is supposed to pick up these programs when the state money runs out? Do they just use the money to build or remodel buildings and then walk away? What about the people who need and depend on the program? ? Program User, El Centro All the programs will continue, according to Rita Brogan, who coordinates the effort from the county Office of Education. Local school districts will sponsor the programs.

One of the old black and white photos in the box is clearly a statement about winter in Imperial Valley. It's dated January 1958. My mom is wearing shorts while standing barefoot in the grass, her hand poised on her hip. My parents came to the Valley as newlyweds in September 1945 at the end of World War II. My dad had served in France and North Africa and was stationed for a short time in Phoenix. Dad was from Eastern Montana, near the Canadian border, where his family grew wheat, prayed for rain and had sometimes spent a week or two snowed in, unable to get to Flaxville, six miles away.

Recently, the Imperial Valley Press published an article written by someone who was annoyed by the loud sounds of our military planes. While respecting his opinion, I wish to offer an alternate view. Also living within the flight pattern of our Navy base, I feel a deep sense of pride each time I witness these magnificent planes, piloted by highly skilled men, soaring in our beautiful cloudless skies while performing complex maneuvers with graceful elegance. Long ago, we regularly attended the San Diego Starlight Opera held in the Balboa Park grotto.

IMPERIAL - As children played with tons of shredded ice shaped into a giant hill - a mound of makeshift snow - Manuel Zamora was looking on with a smile on his face. In Zamora's view, every city throughout the Imperial Valley should have an event like Imperial's Market Days. “This is something all communities need,” he said. An estimated 2,000 people felt the same way Thursday. The opening day of the annual outdoor event got under way Thursday afternoon into the evening along a stretch of Imperial Avenue.

I thought snow in Brawley was against the law. I was very curious when I saw the I.V. Press article about Brawley?s Christmas celebration. In the article, it mentioned that there was snow trucked in for people to play with. However, I thought that there was an obscure regulation in Brawley banning snow within city limits? Here is one mention of the regulation: http://www.helium.com/items/388413-strange-and-funny-laws-of-the-united-states Is this regulation outdated, or just ignored?
