Four Pomona men sleeping in garage with stolen property to face burglary charges

Hoodlums from outside our city often come to Pomona to do their illegal deeds. This is, of course, is annoying. Equally annoying are those residents of Pomona who disparage our fair city by committing crime. This just in from the LA Times...

Santa Cop Pancake Breakfast

I *just* heard about this event (less than 36 hours lead time -- ugh! How is it that even those of us who really want this sort of information can't get it?!). At any rate, I thought some others might be interested and available.

(Those of us who can't make this event will want to note the alternatives for supporting Santa Cop -- second to last paragraph of the announcement.)


The Pomona Police Department will be holding their annual Santa Cop Pancake Breakfast to raise funds to purchase toys for the children in need in Pomona. You can enjoy breakfast for $4 or you can bring a new, unwrapped toy. Breakfast will be served at the west parking lot of the Pomona Police Department located on the corner of Mission Boulevard and Park Avenue between 7:30am and 10:00am on Thursday, November 5.

Residents and businesses can assist the department by dropping off new, unwrapped toys at the station or at other drop off sites at the Pomona Public Library at 625 S. Garey Avenue, or Pomona City Hall at 505 S. Garey Avenue. We will also accept cash donations or gift cards to Mattel, Toys 'R' Us or Walmart.

Businesses can request a collection box by calling Community Programs at (909)620-2318.

Sexy Civil Servants

While out and about celebrating Halloween, I noticed a surprising trend: the sexy civil servant costume.

I saw multiple hottie cops (with particular density at Santa Fe Outlets), a sexy corrections officer (with her inmate in tow), a feisty fire fighter, and a particularly striking CHiP officer. Alas, the sexy county registrars and DAs were absent from the circles I floated in last night.

Shall we chalk this one up to a swell in civic pride?
