Column: ‘True Blood’ plans for Chino Hills punctured

I wouldn’t have thought I’d be writing a second item about “True Blood,” a TV series I’ve never watched, but around the same time they were filming a few scenes in Pomona, which I wrote about, they were asking permission to film in Chino Hills. Sunday’s column explains what happened to that.

Also, the recent Padua Avenue sign news in Claremont reminded me of a similarly odd sign near the same location; and I present a few vignettes.

A Chino Hills primer

A sign for a candidate running in the Fire District election Tuesday made me do a double-take. The candidate’s name was unfamiliar, and yet in other ways very familiar. So let me break it down for you. Mike Kreeger is not to be confused with Mike Fleager, who is the city manager, or with Bill Kruger, a former councilman. You’re welcome!

Column: Electronics giant may need GPS to find own store

Wednesday’s column (read it here) begins with an item about a new Best Buy in Chino that the retailer seems to think is in Chino Hills. What’s funny is that this began as a one-line item about the new store, which I learned about from my Sunday advertising circular. But once I set out to determine the store’s location, things got more interesting, as you’ll see.

Following that are various items from around the valley and a plug for the Pomona Public Library’s Adopt-a-Magazine effort.
