Starting Monday, drivers can expect minor traffic delays along Bernal Avenue between Valley and Pleasanton avenues as major street improvements get under way. Funds from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) finance the project.

Wing Healing Therapies Foundation is actively seeking volunteers to help with the planning and execution of the 2011 Ragin' Cajun, the group's annual fundraiser, which will be held at the Palm Event Center on Feb. 11, 2011.
