Pomona Heritage is hosting its annual picnic this Saturday from 4 - 6 PM at the Palomares Adobe. 491 E. Arrow Hwy (at Orange Grove)
If you're not already a member, consider becoming a member (family memberships are only $30) yet this week so you can get some rockin' deep pit barbeque pork and beef, tortillas and drinks. Members with last names beginning with A - O are asked to bring a dessert for 12; members with last names beginning with P - Z are asked to bring a salad or side dish for 12. Please call to RSVP (they have to know how much barbeque to throw in the pit): (866)833-4086
The adobe will be open for touring!
So, let's do the math. For the price of a $30 membership, a family of four can enjoy an amazing meal plus a tour of a gorgeous local landmark plus -- if the spirit moves you -- you can meander over to the park to kick your heels up at the skate part (or lawn bowling field). Deal!
For information on how to become a member, check out the Pomona Heritage website. The website says you have to send in your member info, but I'm guessing (and this is a total guess) that if you showed up to the barbeque with the information and cash in hand you'd be able to sign up on the spot. Can anyone confirm this hunch?

Last night and this morning I received two separate reports of folks “hanging out” in our neighborhood. I, myself, have also seen an increase in foot traffic of folks that do not appear to live in the area – not the normal walkers we see on a daily basis, perhaps checking things out?
In one instance, two of our neighbors were taking a walk and saw one fellow looking (“suspiciously”) down the alley at
In the other instance, on the 300 block of

The Pomona Eagles are having a K-9 dinner on June 18th to purchase another dog for the Police Dept. The menu is baked chicken, vegetable, mashed potatoes & gravy and a roll.
Dinner is from 5 to 7 PM, cost is $7.00. "
Ed left out that the Eagles are located at 954 W Mission Blvd,Pomona, CA 91766, (909) 622-9160.
I've been there Monday nights for Taco and had a great time.
Love 'Ya, Pomona!

Sure, I'd like to believe this is the case. But for some reason I suspect the absence of snazzy little icons representing everything from graffiti to homicides has more to do with process rather than data.
Does anyone know where the data are? Or, shall we start paying tribute to the goddess who oversees our fair city for bringing a wave of calm? How long has the map been down? Or I am just map-challenged and can't figure out how to work the darn thing? (Admittedly, the interface has changed a couple times and it isn't the easiest tool to use -- availability of data does not equate to accessibility of data in this case.)

Now, here's the really exciting part, Lt. Rilloraza stands ready to address any concerns you bring to his awareness. All you have to do is let him know about the concern before the meeting so he can pull the information he needs to provide as thorough a response as possible. How do you contact him, you may ask? You've got options.
1. You can leave a detailed message at the Watch Commander desk: 909-620-2151.
2. You can leave a comment here and I'll forward any comments received by Friday, June 5 to Lt. Rilloraza.
3. The flier distributed by the PD announcing this meeting offers another mechanism for improving communications, but -- ironically -- it is unclear whether they recommend this mechanism for communicating with our Watch Commanders or just contacting the city in general. I suspect the latter, but can't figure out why the info would appear on a flier about the former unless it is in fact relevant. So, here goes:
