Column: Crime, not election, made councilwoman run

A weekly stroll on the Euclid median turned into a foot pursuit by an Ontario councilwoman after she accosted a man taping up one of the hundreds of solicitation notices that have gone up citywide in recent weeks and he thought he could outrun her. Nope.

Following that in Wednesday’s column are some culture corner items, word of a series of civil rights speakers in Claremont and a visit to an LA Aqueduct-themed history exhibit.

Column: Unguarded comments fly at Ontario council meeting

All I wanted was a short item, honest, to top off an items column. So I attended Tuesday’s Ontario City Council meeting, in hopes of something happening. My reward was the spectacle of a feisty Ontario-Montclair School Board member speaking during public comment, and four council members firing back. It was among the more ridiculous, but entertaining, meetings I can remember attending.

Instead of a short item, I got an entire column, which you can read here. (Items will run Sunday instead.)
