I found this first tweet pretty hilarious and just had to share.(I’ve even received press releases for events in Canada)
I have a very similar disclaimer, in the first tweet, in my Twitter bio box.
The owner of Cardenas market, which is headquartered in Ontario, passed away last week. My colleague Neil Nisperos is working on an update. Here is what we have.
Here is a statement, released today, from assemblymember Jose Medina, D-Riverside, on the passing of Jesus Cardenas:
“I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Jesus Cardenas, the founder and owner of Cardenas Markets. Mr. Cardenas came from modest beginnings and through his hard work, went on to achieve huge recognition in the community as a successful Latino business owner. His family will carry on his memory through their continued participation in the community. My thoughts and prayers are with his friends and family at this time. I will ask my colleagues in the Assembly to join me in adjourning in his memory.”

After years of attempting to make it out to the Los Angeles County Holiday Celebration, I was finally able to get out of work in time to enjoy the show. I was pleasantly surprised to see Ontario’s own, Charles Phoenix, featured in the free holiday show on Dec. 24.
Phoenix, a pop-culture humorist, served as the evening’s “celebrations reporter” recording several pre-recorded segments for the live show.
It was no surprise that his first segment was from his hometown, Ontario’s Logan’s Candy where they make candies by hand and are known for candy canes at Christmastime.
The segment centered around the process of making a candy cane and featured Jerry Rowley, owner of the 1933-founded Logan’s, and his family. I’m told the program not only aired on KCET but available to view online as well. Continue reading
