November 29, 2012 (San Diego) -- Before reading Chocolate and Corn Flour, I did not know that there was such a thing as a "Black" Mexico.” Having lived in Tijuana, Mexico for a number of years and visited a number of Mexican cities, such as Cancun and Rosarito Beach, this book comes as a revelation to me.
January 20, 2012 (El Cajon ) -- Did you know that the Chase Gold Mines in El Cajon yielded $100,000? Third grade students in El Cajon are invited to dig up more historical stories and enter an essay contest sponsored by the El Cajon Historical Society. Children learning about local history are encouraged to write a 300-word essay about El Cajon's past.
