WTF? (It's not what you think.)

On June 30th the post office was slated to send out over 5,100 copies of a glossy flier containing tidbits of Neighborhood Watch success stories. The flier was to be distributed to all residential addresses north of 1st Street and east of San Antonio. A lovely business card size magnet printed with important phone numbers was adhered to each flier.

Alas, I haven't received a flier. None of my neighbors have received a flier either. WTF? Where's The Flier? Have you seen it? I'm curious to know if ANYONE has received this flier. Please post a quick comment if you received the flier. It should have arrived in mailboxes around July 5th or 6th.

Library's wish list on Amazon

I just saw this little notice on the last page of the "summer fun" catalog, which is posted on the Parks & Rec webpage. I thought, "What a cool idea -- a simple and direct way to support our library!" BUT, near as I can tell, only two of the books that remain on the wish list are actually for sale. Bummer. Perhaps the library peeps can let us know when the wishlist is updated with more books so we can make a contribution.

Support the Pomona Public Library through purchases. The library has created wish lists for children's, teen and adult books. Amazon donations are sent directly to the library, with each book receiving a bookplate in recognition of the donor. Current wish lists can be found by typing in "Pomona Public Library" in the wish list field of For information on the Amazon wish list and library book adoption programs, call (909) 620-2043 x2706.
