Column: For your reference, RC librarian leaves

Sunday’s column starts with news from Rancho Cucamonga, from the departure of its top librarian for Pasadena to development items and more. Then come five Culture Corner items, one of which involves an Ontario concert with which I’m participating, plus a Valley Vignette.

As a behind-the-scenes tidbit, some of these RC items, just as with some of the Chino Hills items Friday, were written weeks or even months ago. This is a year-end move to take some material that has been bumped from previous columns, or saved for future use, and clear it out.

    Well, why doesn’t Metrolink cut out the 9:49 p.m. and go back to 11:00 p.m. That is only one hour, and those that decry any such change can just take a book and relax at the station. When they took away the 11:00 p.m. train, they screwed up people taking the train home from work in L.A. and they took away any extra recreational things we could do in LA without having to drive the freeways–free concerts at the CA Plaza, ballets and symphony programs–I had partaken of all of those things on week nights when the 11:00 p.m. train was running–one Friday night, Metro decided to do maintenance on the Red Line and it and Metrrolink stranded a whole bus load of us at Union Station because Metrolink did not wait for us–we had to wait until after 1:00 a.m. to pick up Foothill Transit. I could write a book, David. Oh, but the two ladies did that……(Here is a little funny for you…….my neighbor and I went into a Metrolink meeting at the MTA Building, and I can’t even remember now what we were concerned about–we left the meeting early after we realized our presence served no purpose–a female Metrolink employee followed us into the rest room because she thought we were the two ladies who wrote the book–she said she had helped them with the Metrolink Matters issue–I guess at this age we all look alike.)
