Column: Euclid median torn up for widening, dig?

If you drive through the Euclid Avenue interchange in Ontario and Upland, you’ll see a lot of activity and a lot of bare dirt where grass and trees once grew. (And where brick planters rose in the portion over the freeway.) I visit and take photos of the work, which will result, eventually, in a wider freeway and an improved interchange. Also, a favorite haunt of mine, Nancy May’s ’50s Cafe in Rancho Cucamonga, opened Monday for the first time since mid-March. I write about both in Wednesday’s column.

Column: For Graber’s, windfall of TV publicity isn’t the pits

Two plugs on “The Tonight Show” by Jimmy Fallon and an episode of “Ghost Adventures” give Ontario’s Graber Olives a rush of publicity and sales. Also, a former Mother of Invention band member checks in and the Rancho Cucamonga Public Library’s annual Star Wars Day event goes virtual. All of that is in Wednesday’s post-holiday column.

Column: Double play! Ontario ballpark repeats in ‘A League of Their Own’

A planned “A League of Their Own” TV series filmed the other day at Ontario’s Jay Littleton Ball Park, the same venue where the movie was filmed nearly three decades ago. Also, a punk- and horror-themed flea market will descend Sunday on downtown Upland, where it’s expected to draw thousands. Those items and more make up Friday’s column.

Column: Let’s tour Frank Zappa sites in downtown Ontario

Did you know struggling musician Frank Zappa lived in downtown Ontario in the early 1960s? He lived at three different addresses over a four-year period. I write about that in Sunday’s column, along with two other Zappa items: release of a coloring book devoted to him and an upcoming concert in Montclair by one of his sons, Dweezil.
