bout 40 people attended a community meeting Tuesday to denounce a letter San Bernardino officials wrote asking for federal assistance to combat crime and drug use. The ‘Evening With the Mayor’ event at the Faith Bible Church saw tensions rise among residents who have different views regarding marijuana legalization and public safety. Residents attempted to ask Mayor Carey Davis and other city leaders questions about their request to meet with President Trump and U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions to address crime and marijuana, as outlined in a February 13 letter. “As San Bernardino emerges from bankruptcy we are striving S.B. cont. on next page

San Bernardino’s Samuel Barfield fighting St. Paul’s Louis Bangai for the ball during their school’s ciF Division 3A semifinal matchup on Feb. 24.

ANTA FE SPRINGS--San Bernardino saw their hopes of winning the CIF Southern Section boys basketball title come to an end last Friday evening. Senior center Louis Bangai scored 22 points for St. Paul, while Nate Kasongo tallied 17 en route to defeating the Cardinals 56-52 in a Division 3A semifinal matchup. San Bernardino's Matthew Bradley scored 20 points in the losing effort. Despite being eliminated, San Bernardino’s principal Antoinette Gutierrez believes the boys are still winners. “It was an exciting game, and I couldn’t be any more prouder,” Gutierrez said of the team. “They fought hard until the very end.” The Cardinals still have a shot of winning their first CIF title in 28 years. CIF officials announced San Bernardino received an at-large bid for the Division 3 state playoffs which begin week. There’s a possibility the Cardinals could face the Swordsmen again.

“How far will Mayor Davis go to get cannabis out of the city? Will he allow children to be [separated] from their families...allow all this to happen to get resources he needs to get rid of pot?” -San Bernardino resident and cannabis advocate William Cioci on the city’s letter asking President Donald Trump for federal assistance.

S.B. cont. from front to revitalize our community but continue to face many challenges including violent crime,” the letter stated. “In order to more effectively reduce crime it would help our city to gain the support and partnership of the US Department of Justice in our efforts to address illicit drug and marijuana trafficking.” Davis refrained from answering questions relating to the letter. Some residents say it’s because the Mayor and other leaders have no interest in hear-

ing views that don’t align with their agenda. “He simply refused to hear us out,” said Cal State San Bernardino student Andrew Crampton, who shouted at the Mayor as Davis proceeded to leave the church promptly after the meeting. “It’s not in their best interests.” Others fear collaboration with federal officials may set a precedence for immigration enforcement. “How far will Mayor Davis go to get cannabis out of the city?” asked advocate William Cioci. “Will he allow children to be [separated] from their fami-

lies...allow all this to get resources he thinks he needs to get rid of pot?” The letter controversy comes four months after voters approved a measure to legalize and regulate marijuana in the city. Despite its success, city officials are now struggling to implement Measure O because of litigation, explained Attorney Gary Saenz. City Manager Mark Scott claims the letter was not intended to play into the Trump administration’s comments regarding further enforcement. Rather, Scott said it was a request to receive an update on

federal marijuana regulation and seek help for the city’s crime issue. “We’ve been asking for help,” said Scott. “We noticed Trump was promising Chicago help. If he’s willing to send resources then we’ll take them. But we’re not asking for an invading army.” Yolanda Martinez believes the city could benefit from shifting its focus away from marijuana enforcement. Martinez, who is affiliated with the Students for Quality Education chapter at Cal State San Bernardino, claims aggressive drug laws have only contributed to more

inequality in communities like San Bernardino. “This was a reactionary decision to ask for more law enforcement funding, which will only put more poor people in prison,” she said. “We definitely will continue to put pressure on the city.” According to Scott, the letter will be discussed by the City Council at their next meeting on March 6. The meeting begins at 4 p.m.

The game, a defensive struggle between to disciplined teams, swung back and forth throughout with St. Paul (20-4) taking a 15-10 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Cardinals took advantage of Bangai’s second quarter benching by scoring 15 points to take a 2519 lead. The Swordsmen, with Bangai back in, scored seven unanswered points to finish the half with a 26-25 lead. San Bernardino (19-10) began the fourth quarter down 47-39 before tallying up 11 points (to St. Paul’s four) to get within one point of tying it at 51-51. The Cardinals had an opportunity to take the lead with one minute to go in the fourth quarter when St. Paul’s Alfredo Reyes’s misplaced pass went into the stands. However, Isaiah Mitchell’s three point shot was short. Bangai was the focal point of the Swordsman’s attack, making five free throws in the last 30 seconds of the game to seal the victory. “It was our goal to get to the final,” Bangai said. “We worked hard every day to get to this moment. We have to continue to stay disciplined.”

La Verne one of the best-run cities in California

I couldn’t imagine living anywhere else! My husband and I moved to La Verne almost 20 years ago, just before our son started kindergarten. We still talk about what a great decision it was for us and our kids.

I think we have one of the bestrun cities in California. We have our own fire and police departments. Response times for both of these departments is 2–3 minutes. Our police department’s motto is “No call is too small” and they mean it. We have a great chief and our officers are top-notch!

Our city manager, mayor, and council have always made great choices for our community. We have wonderful programs for youth and senior citizens. A 30year tax was passed a few years ago, which pays for improvements to our schools. As a result, there is a new state-of-the-art performing arts center and several new gyms, among others things.

We, as a community, know the importance of schools and I’m so happy my kids were able to go through the Bonita Unified

School District.

La Verne has several traditions, but two of my favorite’s are our annual Fourth of July parade, and Santa and the fire department visiting every street in La Verne on Christmas morning. Although La Verne keeps up with the times, it still manages to keep its smalltown feel, which is why we love it so much! Denise Fisher, La Verne

We must take a stand against gender wage gap I believe that the growing gender wage gap in the United States, specifically in California, is concerning for today’s working women and future generations.

As a teenage girl who will be graduating in a few months and going off to college, I am dismayed with the lack of progress

we have seen these last few years in the pay-equality race.

As a whole, our society has become much more progressive. Therefore, I do not understand why we still have discrepancies with females’ wages.

I believe both women and men should take a stand against the

growing wage gap and let it be known that whatever your gender, race or sexual orientation is, there should be equality in the workplace in every regard. Jenna Prescott, Chino

Politicians first line of defense in war on police

he tragic death of a Whittier police officer at the hands of an active felon is another copkilling blow to our seriously damaged society at the hands of felon-friendly Gov. Jerry Brown and the anti-police former President Obama.

As a retired deputy sheriff who began my long career patrolling the unincorporated East Whittier area in the early 1960s, I am outraged by this and the continuing war against the police.

Hopefully, President Trump can turn things around. Lest we

forget, the police are our first line of defense. Daniel B. Jeffs, Apple Valley

Words to Think About: In Favor of Immigrants

I

By G. W. Abersold Ph.D.

love our country. Ever since I knew the meaning of the word patriot, I’ve been one. I’m also in favor of immigrants entering our country. My ancestors were immigrants from Switzerland and England. Stella’s parents came from Greece. I have grandchildren that have one parent from Costa Rica, Puerta Rico and Mexico. I have close friends from Pakistan, from Vietnam, from Thailand, from Mexico, from Canada, from Iran, from China, from Japan from Tonga and from Portugal. I regularly see doctors: from Egypt, from Poland, from Korea, from Vietnam, from Taiwan. And a dentist from the Philippines. A question. Where did the early citizens of our country come from? The answer. The Native Americans originally came from Russia. The earliest settlers came from England,

from Spain, from France; from Sweden, from Portugal and from Germany. Then I think of the countries I’ve visited, without staying longer than 4-5 months-84 of them. Which brings me to the ill-advised decision by President Donald Trump’s regarding Muslims. First of all his grandparents came to America from Germany as immigrants. Then his mother came to America as an immigrant from Scotland. Third, his first wife Ivana and his third wife, Melania, came to America as immigrants from Slovakia and Slovenia. It has often been said that our nation is made up of immigrants. Too true. There are more than 500 tribes of Indians in the USA. They were here when the first immigrants arrived. Before the Pilgrims at Boston’ before the settlers at Jamestown, Virginia, before the explorers at St. Augustine, Florida. This land was not our land in the beginning. The Athabascans migrated from Alyeska (Alaska) between 15,000 and 20,000 years ago. They spread out and various groups developed their own cultures, dialects and became Navajos, Cherokees, Pechangos, Mirangos; Serranos and hundreds of other tribes. When the whites arrived, they were the immigrants. That makes the descendants of all three-Boston, Jamestown and St. Augustine-illegals. That also refers to the colonies and the founders of our country. Descendants of Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Franklin, Han-

cock etc. were illegals as well. It wasn’t until the early 1800’s that records of citizens were taken. In fact, the records were somewhat fuzzy until the 1900’s. The early black population was excluded when it came to citizenship. The early records depicted citizens as white and landowners. The letter of the law made all blacks il-

like us; they have jobs like us. For all intents, they are citizens. Most of them are second generation citizens. They assume their parents were legit. The same applies to former Mexican citizens. The ones I know are second and third generation from Mexico. Their parents came many years ago as workers. Immigration

legal immigrants. A dark period in our country about immigration is the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1892. After being in the USA and working on the railroad, they were mistreated and abused. An example is Redlands. Some Chinese were even hung and others killed by bullets. Oriental Street is a sorry reminder in downtown Redlands. The Chinese were housed in shacks. An equally sorry moment was the aftermath of the Korean War. A personal friend of mine and a veteran came home from the Korean War and was denied access to swim in the Redlands public pool. He was Hispanic. There is another area of immigration that needs attention. I’m referring to immigrants from Canada and Mexico. I know approximately thirty (30) people from Canada that are assimilating into U.S. citizenship. They look like us; the speak

laws were loose and seldom observed. Their children and grandchildren assumed they were citizens. In fact, I even speak better Spanish than many of them do. The news for several days has focused on the immigration ban issued from the White House by President Donald Trump and his Executive Orders. They were focused on seven countries. I’ve been especially concerned about Iraq. The situations that have really upset me were those that were shut off from entering the U.S.A. They were legally qualified. They also had aided our military forces, laying their own lives open for martyrdom. Several even had loved ones waiting for them. But they were sent back to Iraq. What a shame. Religion of choice has not been; nor should be. It has often been dominated by extremists. For example, Islam. The vast number of

IN MY OPINION, I BELIEVE THAT ANYONE WHO CAN VOTE AND DOESN’T, HAS VIOLATED THEIR GOD-GIVEN TRUST.

Americans have judged Islam by ISIS, which is not Islam. It would be like judging Christianity by the KKK. The clan professes a fundamentalist view of Christianity. To become one a person must profess to be born again and believe in the inerrancy of the Bible; and of course, to be pure white. I’m also concerned with refugees with Green Cards. They are protected by law. Here are a few facts I’ve learned about them. 1. A Green Card holder can travel abroad and reenter the United States. 2. After 5 years they can apply for citizenship. 3. They can apply for government financial aid. 4. Can work for any US employer. 5. They may have access to security clearance and receive Social Security benefits. 6. They can start their own business. 7. They can purchase a home and have a mortgage. 8. They can own cars and firearms. 9. They can live in any State and live there permanently 10. They can become a real estate agent or a life insurance agent. However, they do not have the right to vote, but can contribute to a campaign. IN MY OPINION, I BELIEVE THAT ANYONE WHO CAN VOTE AND DOESN’T, HAS VIOLATED THEIR GOD-GIVEN TRUST. Amen. Selah. So be it.

Congressman holds immigration town hall with SBVC DACA students

C

By Anthony Victoria

ongressman Pete Aguilar hosted a town hall at San Bernardino Valley College last Thursday to discuss issues concerning the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program and other related immigration questions. Aguilar (D-San Bernardino) began the meeting by assuring undocumented students that his office is doing everything possible to address their concerns. “It’s important for us to be vigilant,” Aguilar said to approximately 40 students in attendance. “It’s important for you to understand your rights and know who’s here to help.” Also present were officials from the Guatemalan and Mexican Consulates. The foreign governmental offices provided students with information regarding their legal rights. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) last week released a series of documents that revealed the President’s immigration objectives. Trump intends to revive programs such as Secure Communities and 287(g) to find, apprehend, and deport immigrants that pose a potential risk to public safety or national security. DACA, the program created by the Obama administration to suspend deportation proceedings and provide work authorization for immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, was notably left off DHS Secretary John Kelly’s memos. Yet,

T

these individuals may still face deportation under the new directives. Two DACA recipients have been arrested and placed in detention by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials this month. Both men are facing possible deportation. Immigrant rights leaders say the detention of 22-year-old Jesus Alonso Arreola Robles of Los Angeles and 23-year-old Daniel Ramirez Medina of Seattle, Washington demonstrates the uncertainty surrounding DHS’ immigration enforcement. “[Robles’ and Medina’s] detention came out of a long term strategy to further criminalize the immigrant community,” said Alondra Naves of the Inland Empire Immigrant Youth Coalition. “At this point any infractions, however small they may be, might make people a target.” Aguilar admitted that he’s not optimistic regarding Trump’s immigration priorities and hopes he and congressional colleagues could receive more answers from DHS in the upcoming weeks. “I will continue to ask questions until they answer them,” Aguilar said. Enrique Salomon Rosas, the Chief Consul of the Mexican Consulate in San Bernardino, and staff say they are collaborating with Guatemalan, Honduran, and Salvadoran Consulates to provide resources to nationals residing in the U.S. Both Guatemalan and Mexican Consular officials expect immigration policy to change rapidly, and therefore encourage nationals to not commit crimes or resort to the use

San Bernardino County libraries

celebrating Dr. Seuss, Read Across America

By Yazmin Alvarez

he San Bernardino County Library is celebrating the gift of reading with a lineup of events and programs now through April at its 32 branches. Going on now and continuing through this weekend, the libraries are taking part in Read Across America, sharing the joy of literacy and celebrating beloved author, Dr. Seuss’s birthday. Read Across America is the National Education Association’s reading initiative and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Each branch will host a specialthemed storytime or event featuring popular Dr. Seuss stories, and select branches will even include crafts, activities and offer opportunity drawings and more. The Feldheym Central Library will be offering a Read Across America storytime at 10:30 a.m. in the Bing Wong Auditorium, 555 W. 6th Street in San Bernardino. Special guests Mayor R. Carey Davis and CHP Officer Brian Alvarez will be reading to children and retired children’s librarian, Mary Chartier, will be leading members of the audience in an interactive story as part of the celebration. The program is free and open to the public. The Rialto Branch Library will host a Dr. Seuss Birthday Party March 2 from 3 to 5 p.m. and

everyone is invited to revel in festivities. Pin the heart on the Grinch, a scavenger hunt and rhyming games among others will be part of the fun to be had, said library officials. For those who check out 10 books, library staff will offer a mystery incentive item for an additional prize. The event is free and open to the public. In continuing the celebration for reading, the county library is once again partnering with In-N-Out Burger for it’s Cover to Cover program, kicking off March 4 and continuing through April 15. As part of the program, children ages 4-12 who read a set of five books will receive an achievement award and voucher for a free hamburger or cheeseburger. Each child may earn a total of three awards and vouchers for the duration of the program. The Cover to Cover program is an aim at promoting reading among children during spring. To participate in the Cover to Cover program, visit any of the 32 San Bernardino County Branch Libraries to register.

World Seafood in SB serves up choice, fresh seafood

P

By MJ Duncan

erch from New Zealand, crappie from Lake Superior, cod and halibut from Alaska are a small sample of the fresh, lake and ocean fish featured at World Seafood in San Bernardino. Steven Wuo opened his restaurant on February 4 at the former Mug site, and includes oysters, scallops and jumbo shrimp at competitive prices. A former resident of San Bernardino, Wuo has owned several commercial properties in the city dating back to the early 80’s, and noted through the decades he has gained an understanding of what residents want. He purchased the property on Highland in September, and is no novice to the restaurant industry; his experience includes owning import and retail seafood ventures in the Los Angeles area, and a running his family-owned piano bar and

steakhouse in Alhambra. “I want to bring high-quality seafood that you can’t readily get in this area such as crappie, regarded as a superior fresh water fish in the culinary arena, and offer it at a reasonable price,” Wuo said about his choices of fish. “I run this restaurant like a fish market, but I only sell cooked products, that is what I believe will make me stand out from other restaurants.” Wuo put perch on the menu because its mild flavor is palatable to a range of taste buds, and its versatility. Fish and chips are made with Alaskan cod and portions are generous - a large order for $15 provides one pound of fish, or approximately 13 large pieces. Patrons can request salmon and halibut be grilled, and for $9.50 diners are served half-a-pound of fish. “I wanted to see what took the place of The Mug, and I was happily surprised by the quality of my lunch,” said San Bernardino resi-

dent Philip Anderson. “It’s always dubious to try seafood being so far inland, but my filet of sole was outstanding and very fresh.” Wuo, whose family immigrated here from Taiwan in the 70’s and currently lives in Duarte, says the community has been warm and welcoming since he opened his doors. His business has been mainly fueled by word of mouth, and he is confident that this will be a successful venture. His goal is for World Seafood to become a destination restaurant. “I bought this property because I liked the location, and if I didn’t it may have stayed vacant,” he said. “I am excited about bringing something special to San Bernardino and making a difference in the seafood business in the city. World Seafood is located at 1588 W. Highland Ave. in San Bernardino, and is open everyday from 11 a.m. – 8 p.m., phone number is (909) 474-9437.

The Grove High School is small in numbers, big in Montessori approach to sports

he Grove High School in Redlands is a small high school with big hopes to build a respected athletic program. It's now better known for its student-operated farm and produce market where Grove Athletic Director Kramer Gudgeon serves as business manager. In his second year, Gudgeon wears many hats at The Grove including head coach of the Ravens soccer team, teaching business, and being a member of its board of directors. Despite an enrollment that hovers around 130 students, The Grove has been a member of the California Interscholastic Federation since 2005. It plays at the Division 7 level against parochial schools in the Majestic League. The Grove is making progress in two of the seven sports it competes. This season Gudgeon led the school into the CIF-playoffs. Two seasons ago softball coach Kendall McCarthy led The Grove into the post season. With good hitting down the lineup, the softball team looks capable of returning to the playoffs this season. It features pitchers Caroline Fox, Kennedy McCarthy and senior slugger Christen Freeman. The Grove baseball team has

always been another story due to lack of interest. Former coach Obrey Brown got the team off the ground in 2004. By the next season, the Ravens were competing. Brown guided the team to its best season ever in 2007 with a 6-9 record but had to resign after four years when his son began playing baseball in Palm Springs. "It was very hard for me to step away," Brown said. Brown knows what first-year Ravens baseball coach Chris Brady is going through. He recalled that many of his players had little baseball skill. "I didn't have a catcher or pitcher. We had our pitcher's throw a high arching pitch. Yes. Sort of like slo-pitch softball which could baffle batter's enough to keep us in some games," explained Brown. "I remember one of our hitters got a hold of one and sent it over the fence. He was so excited that he missed touching every base on his home run trot. He was then called out." Progress eventually came. He told of winning one game when his player stole home. The team was soon able to perfect a pickoff play at third base. "I had one rule. Show up on time for practice." Current coach Brady could face a greater challenge. Due to a last minute coaching vacancy, Brady was hired two weeks be-

fore the season opener. There were seven players at a recent practice just ten days before the first game scheduled for March 3rd at Crossroads Christian. "I'm a little concerned. I'm hoping for at least three more. We'll get more," says Brady. Gudgeon, who played soccer at Redlands East Valley High, assured there will be a baseball team this season, saying that at least two more players are expected. "It's always a numbers game at small schools. We hired a coach (Brady) because he is able to individualize practice according to vastly different skills levels, said Gudgeon. According to available records, The Grove has been able to field only three baseball teams in the past eight years. Gudgeon says the past is over and he wants to help build a respectable athletic program. He explained that The Groves is a charter school under the jurisdiction of the Redlands Unified School District and uses the Montessori approach to learning. When asked for a short definition of Montessori, Gudgeon called it "learning by doing." Gudgeon said The Groves uses the Montessori approach on its athletic fields as well, where winning is important but not that important! "Sports is one part of our education plan. We use it to teach skills that could help later in life. We're not a sports school. We just want to see students show improvement in whatever they do." Senior softball player Elizabeth Escobar agreed that it's rewarding to see her team grow in confidence on and off the field. "We expect to win but we learn from our mistakes. I'm learning so I can become a coach. We expect to have fun." Escobar might try out at Chaffey or SBVC next year. "Some of us do wonder how we'd do playing baseball at a bigger high school. I think I'd do well," said freshman Daniel Larrance, one of the more experienced players. "I'm used to a Montesorri education, so I'll stay here." Like Larrance and teammate Daniel Ortiz, senior Colin

LeMasters can excel at every position. He played as a freshman and sophomore and stayed at The Grove that had no baseball team last year. "No. We didn't have a team last season and we didn't

win much before that," said LeMasters. "It's been hard for me because I've always been on winning all-star teams before. It's OK. I'll stay, compete and have some fun."
