Congrats Tim Saunders For Tying The Knot!

As I have always called him, "my favorite Councilperson whose district I don't live in" is getting married this Saturday at the Fox Theater in Pomona. This will be the 2nd wedding to be held there since Juan & Susie's ceremony earlier this year. As with everything, it will also be on the day of Pomona's Art Walk which I look forward to every month. The downtown is gonna be happening this Saturday no doubt.

The Daily Bulletin has a small write up on Tim Saunders wedding HERE.

I also managed to stop by yesterday at the all-new Fox Sports Bar & Grill for the Raider/Cowboy game. This place is beautiful and we will be hitting the spot once again on Saturday. They have a great happy hour special from 4-8pm, which is 2 for 1 drinks and 1/2 off all appetizers! And let me tell you, they were fresh and delicious. I might be planning an event at this location in the next several weeks...

So everybody, dont forget, come do the ART WALK tomorrow 6-9pm. Go to for more info!

Firestone's PALE... A True Cali Pale Ale!

Oh what a lovely summer we have been blessed with! I'm sure at a cost due to our planet's weather mess. Regardless, this whole summer has felt like Spring for the first time since I can remember. And what better way than to enjoy it than with a very delicious brew from Firestone. Here is their California Pale Ale.

I've sampled this brew quite a few times this year but have not written about it. First time I picked it up was at a Ralphs market, I think in Pasadena. They had it on sale for $7.99, which is an excellent price. I just picked up another six pack over at Albertsons in Montclair, or is it Ontario over there near Mountain south of the 10. Anywhoo... Here is what I thought of it.

Delicious, it actually has flavors you can taste, but they dont overpower you and therefore create a smooth drink. Almost like a typical Amber Lager's smoothness, but you can taste what makes it a Pale Ale. This is definitely a quality beer that goes well with all. The wife had some and she just loves this one! She confirmed my experience, because she had her first one on her own and came up to me and said, "whoa, this is a good beer!".

Ratings, LOL, okay, definitely a 4+ out of 5. Maybe a 4.25, Im not sure, but near a 5 for a Pale Ale for sure. I still find Drifter Pale as one of the best in this style, but you cannot go wrong with Firestone's California Pale Ale. Look for it at better markets such as Albertsons, Ralphs, Vons and Pavilions, especially if it's for sale.

Pomona Police Stays In Pomona!

Looks like the idea of 'outsourcing' our safety to the county is now doomed. Thanks to all the overwhelming support of our citizens! And thanks to the council for doing away with it tonight (although some of you knew you had to in order to save your seat). A special thanks for being a true Pomona representative, Mr. Tim Saunders who opposed the idea of outsourcing to the Sheriffs from the beginning, you are truly the people's man. What a scare it was to think we might lose our officers to the county.

A quick write up a little while ago by is HERE.

21 Choices In Claremont Robbed

I have visited this 'newer' yogurt place up the street many times with the kids and we love it. My daughter is especially fond of the 'make your own' yogurt frenzy. I was very saddened and pissed off to hear that it had recently been robbed late at night. To help spread the news, here is the cut and paste of the Claremont Now Daily Bulletin Blog:

Armed robbers tied up two Claremont yogurt shop employees after stealing money from the business late Sunday.

Police said the robbers approached one of the employees of 21 Choices at 11:49 p.m. when he walked out of store to dump the trash, said Claremont police Lt. Mike Ciszek. The business at 817 W. Foothill Blvd. was closed at the time.

One of the men, who was armed with a handgun, ordered the employee to lie on the ground. The other man entered the store and confronted another employee who was counting money.

That robber had the employee put all the cash in a tip jar and then took the employee to the bathroom. The robber tied the employee's hands. The other employee was also placed in the bathroom and his hands were tied behind his back, Ciszek said.

One of the robbers is black, 40 to 45-years-old, 5-feet-7 inches tall, 200 pounds and has short black hair. He wore a white baseball hat, a light blue button-up shirt and a black tie with red dots. He wore blue jeans and thick-framed reading glasses. The second robbers is a thin, black man in his 20s. He is more than 6-feet-tall and wore a baggy white T-shirt, dark jeans and brown hiking boots.

Anyone with information may call Claremont police at 909-399-5411.
