James Taylor - You've Got A Friend (Live At The Beacon Theater)

Ren's "Then and Now"

Well things have changed over the years. Well there is something that kind of show's something from the past. Take the light pole for instance, at one time it use to hold the electric line for the trolley. Well not the same pole, but it does mark the spot where the pole use to be, for the trolley.

Pomona Police Department to hold DUI/ CDL Checkpoint and DUI Saturation Patrols this week

INCIDENT: Traffic Safety Checkpoint & DUI Citywide Patrols

DATE/TIME: Friday February 28th, 2020

Checkpoint 9pm – 3am

Patrols 7pm-3am

LOCATION: DUI Checkpoint at undisclosed location (DUI Patrols citywide)

UNIT: Traffic Services

Pomona, Calif. – Pomona Police Department will hold a DUI/Driver’s License checkpoint on 2/28/20 from 9.00 PM to 3:00 AM at an undisclosed location within the city of Pomona.  In addition, Pomona Police Department will conduct DUI saturation patrols on 2/28/20 aimed at getting impaired drivers off the road.

DUI checkpoints and saturation patrols are done in locations with a higher frequency of DUI-related collisions and arrests. During the checkpoint, officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, with officers checking drivers for proper licensing.

In 2017, 1,120 people were killed in alcohol-involved crashes on California roads. In 2017, the Pomona Police Department investigated 127 DUI collisions which claimed 1 life and resulted in another 49 injuries.

Pomona Police Department reminds drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.”  If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.

Pomona Police Department offers these tips to ensure you have a safe night of fun that doesn’t involve a DUI:
  • Always use a designated sober driver – a friend who is not drinking, ride-share, cab or public transportation – to get home.
  • See someone who is clearly impaired try and drive? Take the keys and help them make other arrangements to find a sober way home.
  • Report drunk drivers – Call 911.
  • Hosting a party? Offer nonalcoholic drinks. Monitor who is drinking and how they are getting home.

Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be upwards of $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.

Funding for these enforcement efforts are provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

10 Items you REALLY got from comic book ads

Come out for a funny and exciting day. There will also be giveaways.

MAR 11 Pomona Community Open House

Major construction on the Foothill Gold Line light rail project will begin late this summer. Ahead of major construction starting, the Foothill Gold Line Construction Authority invites you to attend a community open house to learn the latest about the project, meet the recently hired Kiewit-Parsons design-build team, and to understand how and when construction may impact you. The station artists will also be available to discuss the public artwork planned for their station, at their city-specific meetings.

All meetings will have the same displays and information, including the latest station layouts, 3D models, station art plans, project schedule and what to expect during major construction – so attend the one that is most convenient for you. Each station’s artist will also be in attendance at their respective city’s meeting.

Pomona station artist Stephen Farley will be in attendance at this meeting.

See all meeting dates and locations here:

NOTE: Future meetings will be held in Claremont and Montclair when funding is secured.

Stay ahead of construction by signing up for alerts:

About the Project: The Foothill Gold Line light rail project from Glendora to Montclair will extend Metro Gold Line service to the cities of Glendora, San Dimas, La Verne, Pomona, Claremont and Montclair. The first nine miles of the project, from Glendora to Pomona, is fully funded and will begin major construction in late summer (and take five years to complete). If additional funding is secured before October 2021, the entire project from Glendora to Montclair will be completed altogether and take eight years. The project is mostly funded by LA County’s Measure M and state funds (including SB1).
