Holtville Tribune Web Site Report for 2011


Pioneers Memorial Healthcare District and its employees are saddened to learn of the death of Sister Justyn Kreig on September 8, 2011. Sister Justyn first served PMH as a nurse in 1952 and later became the Director of Nurses for eight years. She left in 1960 to earn a degree in hospital administration from St. Louis University. She returned to PMH in 1962 as the administrator, the Chief Executive Officer. Her work with the staff and physicians earned her high praise. She left PMH in 1972 to join Villa Elizabeth, operated by the Grand Rapids (Michigan) Catholic Diocese, as administrator.


Please join the board and staff of PMHD in remembering Sister Justyn.


Anyone interested in running for office at the June 5 presidential primary election  may take out papers for petitions in lieu of paying a filing fee beginning Friday (Dec. 30, 2011).  Candidates may submit a petition containing registered voters’ signature in lieu of paying the filing fee in order to run for office.  Signatures submitted may cover all or a portion of filing fee.  Registered voters may sign a petition in lieu of fees for any candidate as long as the voter is eligible to vote for that candidate.


The Registrars’ staff is available to help candidates complete the necessary paperwork and answer their questions.  Further information about the June 5 election may be obtained by calling the office at  (760)482-4226.


The petition in lieu of filing fee does not apply to candidates for county central committee or county Board of Education because those candidates are not required to pay a filing fee to run for office.


The Imperial Valley Joint Chambers of Commerce, a coalition of Valley chambers of commerce, will hold a major business show Jan. 12 in the Preble building at the Imperial Valley Expo.

The 13th annual Business Showcase will feature more than 120 displays by businesses from all over the county. The show will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Show organizers say that the display floor is again expected to be sold out. There are a few spaces left and organizers urge businesses to act quickly if they want to display.

“This is the largest annual event of the Joint Chambers,” said Joint Chambers President Susan Giller. “It’s a great place for Valley visitors and residents alike to attend and see the diverse number of local businesses and how they serve our community.”

The purpose of the annual show is to provide businesses the opportunity to promote and market to Valley businesses and residents. Valley restaurants will again offer samples from their menus.

“There are also opportunities for networking, product displays and free refreshments and gifts,” said Showcase Chairman Aaron Popejoy. He added that an estimated 2,000 people attended the show in 2011.

“This year, we once again will be encouraging businesses to sell products and services at the Showcase,” he added.

There will be a $5 per person admission charge at the door for everyone over the age of 5 years.

Major sponsors of the Showcase are  Allied Waste, Imperial Valley Press, Imperial Printers, San Diego County Water Authority, Imperial Irrigation District, Sun Community Federal Credit Union, Rabobank, Desert Commercial Bank, Advanced Pain Associates, Charles R. Stevens, M.D.
