A security video became known to the School Resource Officer assigned to the high school, which captured images of the suspect(s) in the commission of this crime.

On Saturday, August 7, 2021, a search warrant was authored by SET for a residence in the 7500 block of Elm Grove, Eastvale. Multiple items of evidence related to this investigation linking the suspects to the burglary were located during the service of this search warrant.

Eastvale – Several Eastvale community members gathered at the July 28 City Council meeting to voice their concerns about the proposed apartments to be built on Sumner and Schleisman Road. The meeting was packed with residents holding “No Density APT” signs, with crowds of people both inside and outside the building. It was reported that there were over 50 speakers addressing their concerns and providing suggestions to the council, and the housing portion of the meeting lasted over 4 hours long.
The conversation among the community started when Stratham Homes proposed to build 216 High-Density apartments and townhomes at the corner of Sumner and Schleisman Road. The structures are proposed to be 2 and 3 stories tall and include a 5,000 sq. ft. complex on the property.
The main concerns of the community are the increased traffic the apartments will bring. The residents suspect the traffic will increase collisions and pose a risk to children walking or riding bikes to school, which is only a half mile away. They are also concerned about the road diets that they expect will go along with the apartments.
Residents are hopeful that the Council listened to their concerns and will come up with another solution that meets the needs of the Housing Element Plan and the community.
The City has discussed their Housing Element Plan in news releases and videos. They recently uploaded a video discussing how every City in the state of California is required to update their housing element plan every eight years. “This is a state mandate and by law, requires our city to comply,” stated the City in a Facebook post. However, they encourage the community to provide their input view the RHNA (Regional Housing Needs Allocation) Challenge.
The challenge is an online simulation tool where community members have an opportunity to be a “resident planner” and create a “balanced housing plan by adjusting future housing units to meet State requirements.”
The City stated that the ideas created in this simulation are a “key piece of community input that will guide the development of our Housing Element planning document update to be in compliance with state regulations.” Once residents are completed with their housing plan, you can submit it directly to the City and the City team will use the results to inform the Housing Element update.
Update since published: The City hosted an Eastvale Housing Open Forum on August 26th from 6 to 8 pm at New Day Church. City staff took questions on the 3,028 housing units the residents are concerned about. More information to come.
Chino Hills – Hiring an attorney can be very intimidating and let’s face it the industry doesn’t exactly have a “trustworthy” reputation. We should be careful and ask some questions when we do need an attorney. What questions should we ask before we actually hire an attorney? First, how long have they been practicing law? Second, who are they, what evidence do we have of their honesty and integrity? Third, do we believe they actually care about us, our case and not just the money? Also we have to ask can we afford the legal fees and will this firm give me the most bang for my buck?
In a society where money is king and less costs more with every passing day finding an attorney that we can trust and afford can be like finding a needle in a haystack.
William Radcliffe is the attorney that not only answers these questions positively but exceeds expectations in his areas of expertise.
William became one of the youngest attorneys in California at the age of 23. He began his career 32 plus years ago working with his father John Radcliffe, a well-known and respected personal injury attorney in Covina.
In 1986 William married his wife Bonnie who was a legal secretary at a law firm in Ontario at the time. “Bonnie’s Paralegal” processed uncontested divorces and became very successful while William continues to work with his father. After some time William decided to start his own law practice and with Bonnie’s business serving as a client base it was a no brainer for them. William Radcliffe Law Offices became one of the first law firms that offered traditional attorney representation as well as assisting people in representing themselves in cases that didn’t really need attorney assistance.
In the 1990’s the business expanded their services to bankruptcies and a few years later added Wills and Trusts to their growing list of services. “Experience in the area of your need is important” says William. “I think someone who will try to keep the Client’s legal expenses to a minimum is important and that is what got us to where we are today” William added. William said, “We know that not everybody can afford a large legal retainer and no one wants to spend more money than is necessary so if all they need is a paralegal we are there for them”.
Whether you need traditional attorney representation or simply some legal assistance The Law office of William Radcliffe will assess your case and do “whatever it takes” to give you the most cost effective legal assistance plan available today.
“Every Client will receive hands on personal service from an attorney every step of the way through their case” says William. William Radcliffe law offices are always keeping their eyes open to what the latest needs might be for future clients. They are constantly looking at what other offices are doing and what the current trends are for the legal needs of the people. “We now see that mediation is a common trend in the industry today and that ties into our philosophy of helping our clients avoid runaway attorney fees”.
William Radcliffe is bringing these philosophies to Orange County to help even more people by showing them that there is somebody out there trying to help them with this need in an industry that just put simply doesn’t have that type of reputation.
The main office is in Chino/Chino Hills but they also see clients in their home office in San Clemente where he and Bonnie reside. They are involved in the Children’s Ministry at Saddleback Church in San Clemente and provide legal service to the public at the church’s PEACE center.
Bankruptcy, Wills, Trusts and Divorces contested and uncontested services available at reasonable prices. You can contact William Radcliffe at (909)597-3633 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Go to www.docoflaw.com for further information.

Eastvale – At the June 23 City Council meeting, Brandon Plott was unanimously appointed to fill the vacant City Council seat due to Councilmember Ike Bootsma passing away last month. He will fill the position until the November 8, 2022 election results are certified. The remaining two years of the District 5 term will be up for a Special Election in November 2022.
Councilmember Plott previously served on the City Council from 2016 through 2020 and recently served as Mayor of the City of Eastvale in 2020.
During the 2020 election, Plott announced that he was not running for re-election because he was going to spend time with his family. However, after he was appointed at the June meeting, he clarified why he is more than willing to serve on the City Council now. On a social media post, he stated he was going through a foster to adopt process at the time of re-election, so he was uncertain of the time constraints of running a re-election campaign.

I’m always available.”

It was a very good enterprise and worked well for the Dairy industry and for his family.”
Ike then served on the City Eastvale City Council from 2010 through 2016, along with four terms as Mayor from 2013 to 2016. “While on the City Council, Ike represented the City on several regional boards, including Western Riverside Council of Governments and the Riverside Transit Agency,” stated the City. Ike and his wife, Squeaker, were also very active with the Eastvale Kiwanis Club and have helped raised money each year to provide Eleanor Roosevelt High School students with college scholarships. They were active in the Eastvale Roadway Adoption Program and have kept city streets free of litter by participating in monthly street clean up events. In addition, Ike was an active member of the local Eastvale Chamber of Commerce. Ike was then re-elected to the Eastvale City Council in November of 2020, representing District 5.
