Baldwin Park Bust

A few days old story but WOW! 80 kilos of Cocaine found in a Baldwin Park home. There's more to Baldwin Park than just the birthplace of In & Out Burger!

"Covina police received information of suspicious activity in area houses. Their investigation led them to a house in Baldwin Park, which they placed under surveillance, according to the report.

On Monday, investigators spotted Perez leaving and pulled him over on a traffic stop. They then searched his home and found the drugs and money, according to the report."

Claremont's Cough Syrup Cartel

Oh yeah, my fine friends over at Claremont Insider have an interesting write up on this story published by the Daily Bulletin, here's a quote from the Daily Bulletin:

"A Claremont woman and her son are among four defendants who have been charged with money laundering related to a pharmaceutical distribution ring.

Lucita Uy, 70, and her son Lemuel Libunao, 42, both of Claremont were allegedly part of a narcotics ring that sent the powerful cough syrup Promethazine from Southern California to Texas where it was often sold at a high markup, according to information from the United States Attorney's Office.
The cough syrup is referred to as "purple drank," "syrup," "purple liquid" and "lean."

The Claremont Insider digs deeper and gives you the whole story, previous indictments, pictures and personal quotes. What's interesting is I'm always at my kid's soccer practice by the house at Padua Park. And in the end, this part had me laughing...

"All of which just goes to show that Claremonters lead very interesting lives, and we may just never be what we appear to be."

Get Out & Vote Today!

Yeah I know, for one little thing. And many other cities too. For Pomona, there are 5 candidates for 2 School Board positions. I say out of a population of over 150,000, perhaps 500 will vote, well, okay, less than 1,000. And it will probably mostly be out of Phillips Ranch & Diamond Bar.

I really hope Frank Guzman gets a slot on the board. This guy really does want to do the job, and doesn't seem to be trying to 'Norma Torres' himself for personal gain. He is a Diamond Bar resident, but we share our school district with half of that city. Plus he grew up and works in Pomona and wants to make it better.

The other person I have always liked is Jason Rothman. I voted for him in the past and I really like his stance on that nasty little measure they passed on us by fooling many voters, measure SS. He voted against it as Andrew Wong did too. I applaud Jason for that. Now that being said, everyone doesn't seem to like his father, our Mayor and I've heard all the gossip & rumors relating to him on this school board election. Regardless, I still think Jason does a great job on the board and hope he is his own person, which I believe he is.

The rest of the candidates I have no clue about. I will vote for these 2, since I personally have met them on several occasions.
