Presence of Peace

Pastor Dennis Morales

“The LORD gives strength to his people; the LORD blesses his people with peace” Psalm 29:11

To have peace, is the quest of most of society. “If I could only have this or that… then I will be at peace.” We have a tendency to place earthly demands on peace. Meaning, many think peace is only attained by things we can see, handle, or control. I am reminded when the disciples had followed Jesus into a boat, He had gone right to sleep after a long day of teaching. A violent storm had erupted, and the disciples were soon being tossed around the boat struggling to fight against the waves and wind (Mark 4:35-41). Mind you, some of the disciples were also toughened fishermen. Goes to show that no matter what our experience, we can feel helpless at times. Scripture says that the waves “covered” the boat (Matt 8:24), so the disciples were desperate. Marks Gospel details that other little boats had followed, so they weren’t alone in what they feared. The disciples, gripped by fear, searched and found Jesus in the stern asleep (literally “numb” in the original language). They respond, “don’t you care that we are perishing!” Jesus simply gets up, goes over, and rebukes the wind by simply saying “peace, be still!” Choice words that resonate today. Jesus then responds by saying to the disciples, “where is your faith?” (Luke 8:25). That was the problem. The disciples still lacked faith in Jesus, who had power over the very elements striking fear in their hearts. I think we have a tendency to turn to outlets for information and remain focused on the information, rather than on God’s presence. We have confirmation in God’s word that God gives strength to his people as they trust in Him. Another caveat of His presence is peace (Psalm 29:11). You will have true peace today if you trust He’s in the boat with you (Psalm 46:10). He is near to all who call upon Him(psalm145:18).

WVUSD Closes Due to COVID-19

Staff Reports

Walnut – On March 13, Superintendent Robert P. Taylor announced that all Walnut Valley USD schools will be closed for five weeks, effective Monday, March 16. The schools will re-open on April 20.

“I appreciate your support during this challenging time,” said Taylor in a statement he sent to all parents and guardians. “As the parent of three children, I certainly empathize with the stress, fear, and inquiry that this time period has caused for many parents/guardians.”

Taylor said that the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE) recommended that all schools in Los Angeles County close and/or be dismissed for a minimum of two weeks due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). After this announcement, the WVUSD Board of Trustees held an Emergency Meeting to discuss their plan of action. According to Taylor, the Board “approved a resolution through an emergency measure” that granted the Superintendent the authority to “take all appropriate action to respond to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.”

“I have decided to dismiss (‘pupil free’) schools effective immediately, followed by all schools being closed through Spring Break (5 weeks),” stated Taylor.

From March 16 to 18, students will be dismissed, and it will be considered a “Pupil Free” day. However, the entire school will be closed from March 19 to April 17. Additionally, all extra-curricular activities and athletics have been postponed.

“We continue to prioritize the health and wellness of students and staff as our highest concern,” said Taylor. “Given the advisement of Public Health, medical experts, and other state and county entities, we have decided to allow an appropriate amount of time for students, staff, and families to follow advice of medical practitioners and experts, practice healthy habits, and lessen opportunities for the spread of the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).”

“I recognize that my decision will impact everyone differently,” continued the Superintedent. “Our District will be working with staff to lessen the academic gap that typically occurs over extended recesses from school. Next week, parents and students will be notified of curricular resources that can be utilized during the school closure.”

In addition, he said that additional information will be provided next week, and all schools will answer questions and discuss next steps. “While this is an extremely difficult decision, I also am confident that it was made with the best interest of our staff and students in mind,” stated Taylor.

COVID-19 Patient Visits Walnut, Dies in Pomona

Staff Reports

Walnut – On March 11, the Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PCHMC) announced that a patient who passed away at their hospital confirmed positive for novel coronavirus (COVID-19). This was the first reported COVID-19 death in Los Angeles County.

On March 9, the patient went to the hospital by ambulance and was in full cardiac arrest. Staff provided lifesaving care to stabilize her condition. Based on her travel history and symptoms, the patient was placed in isolation and infection control protocols were implemented according to the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LACDPH) and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). LACDPH authorized to obtain samples for COVID-19 testing, but the patient died shortly after “due to complications from their illness,” according to a PCHMC statement. On March 11, LACDPH confirmed the patient tested positive for COVID-19.

A family member disclosed the patient’s travel status, which included a residence in the City of Walnut. However, the County confirmed that the individual “did NOT circulate around the City of Walnut and stayed primarily at the residence,” according to Walnut Public Information Officer, Melanie Tep. She stated that the City is communicating with LA County’s Department of Public Health for more information regarding the patients’ travel details. “We will communicate more information as it becomes available from the County.”

In addition, the LA County Department of Public Health confirmed that the patient’s family members are currently in quarantine.  PCHMC is also following LACDPH guidelines for the staff that came into contact with the patient.

“We extend our deepest condolences to the patient and family,” said Daniel Gluckstein, MD, Medical Director of Infectious Disease at PVHMC. “At this time, our top priority remains protecting public health and ensuring the safety of our patients, visitors, Associates, physicians, volunteers and community.”

“We understand people are feeling anxious about potential exposure to coronavirus, but we want to reassure our patients and their families that the risk of exposure from this case is low,” stated a PVHMC statement. “PVHMC remains a safe, high-quality facility to seek medical care.”

The City of Walnut issued a reminder stating that Public Health continues to recommend that the public do the following to protect themselves and others from respiratory illnesses:

• Stay home when you are sick.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Limit close contact, like kissing and sharing cups or utensils, with people who are sick.
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash. If you do not have a tissue, use your sleeve (not your hands).
• Facemasks are most effective when used appropriately by health care workers and and those directly caring for people who are sick and by people who are sick (source control).
• Get a flu immunization if you have not done so this season.

Eastvale Schools Close But Learning Will Continue

Staff Reports

Eastvale – On March 13, Superintendent Dr. Lin announced that all Corona-Norco Unified public Schools will be closed from Monday, March 16 to Friday, April 3.
Dr. Lin stated that “the public health crisis created by the Coronavirus is not something any of us could reasonably have expected to happen, and we are in uncharted waters as we work to prevent the spread of the illness.”
“We have been following the direction of public health experts to keep our school community — students, staff, family members and visitors — safe in the midst of a growing health crisis,” he said. “We are now at a point where the balance has shifted and the appropriate path is to close schools. Additionally, President Donald Trump declared a national emergency.”
Therefore, the CNUSD schools will be completely shut down and all activities on or off campus will be cancelled. However, Dr. Lin said they will evaluate and determine if the return date will change. “Parents and staff will hear from CNUSD directly in the event that the return date of April 6, 2020 changes,” stated the Superintendent.
He also said that there are plans for CNUSD students to continue to learn during the closure. The statement included a link to three phases of learning while the schools are closed. During Phase 1 (between 1 and 5 school days), students are encouraged to engage in enrichment activities and read grade level materials. During Phase 2 (between 6 and school 21 days), information will be sent via email and posted on the district website regarding “how to support students with additional enrichment activities they can complete from home.” Then in Phase 3, (longer than school 21 days), further communication will be sent via email and posted on the district website with “specific instructions for completion of school curriculum from home.”
CNUSD did acknowledge that they are aware all students do not have regular access to technology or the internet. Therefore, hard copies of the materials will be provided, and more information will be released at a later date. Direct access to both electronic and paper resources options are currently available on cnusd.k12.ca.us.
“This is a difficult decision, but necessary, as we try to slow the spread of the virus,” stated Dr. Lin in his statement. “Corona-Norco Unified School District serves a wide-range of communities including a high-needs population, and our schools provide a social safety net for our children. The closing of any school has real consequences beyond the loss of instructional time. This is not an easy decision and not one we take lightly.”
Since this is a rapidly changing situation, CNUSD staff advises that parents and families check their email regularly and visit cnusd.k12.ca.us for frequent updates. Dr. Lin stated they will communicate via email, Facebook and Twitter during the course of this closure, as well.
“These are unprecedented and challenging times, but we will get through this as a community,” concluded Dr. Lin.

By K.P. Sander

Ontario – Voortman’s Egg Ranch has been in the business of providing farm fresh eggs to friends and visitors to the local area for over 60 years. Originally from Bellflower, the Voortman family – who has always been in the egg ranching business – moved their operation to Ontario in 1951.

Voortman’s has a small-town farm ambiance, with the latest in technology.  Their happy chickens are enjoying their newly remodeled home; and their egg-processing machine can handle about 36,000 eggs per hour at its peak. If the average bird lays one egg about every 26 hours, that equals a lot of chickens at the Voortman ranch!

Did you know that you can tell how fresh an egg is by how high the yolk stands up in the frying pan after you crack it?  Voortman’s will have your over-easies standing tall.  Their fresh eggs are the highest in quality, with dark, nutrient-dense yolks.  You will immediately notice a difference in your cooking and baking.

Have you ever wondered how long the eggs in the grocery stores have actually been sitting around?  Despite the use-by date, there is really no way to know how long ago they were produced.  With Voortman’s, the eggs are selected daily, on site, and readied for you in their store.

Third-generation egg rancher, Eddie Voortman, says, “We are a local, family-owned business that provides fresh, quality products to the public.”

Customers of Voortman’s rave about their all natural, cage free eggs, touting the freshness, and great pricing.  One customer said, “They make the fluffiest scrambled eggs!”

Man Convicted For Murder Of Ontario Woman

By Anthony Saude

Ontario – A 25-year-old man was convicted for his role in the 2011 torture and burning death of Maria Banuelos.

 

Johnny Hernandez was found guilty of First Degree Murder of Maria Banuelos by a Rancho Cucamonga jury. The jury finding was also in favor for the prosecution charge that the special circumstance her murder was committed during the course or commission of Mayhem. They added one count of Torture, one count of Mayhem and one count of Arson Causing Death.

 

Investigators arrested four other suspects linked to the brutal attack: 45-year-old Hector Meza of Yucca Valley, 27-year-old Genese Ramirez of Banning, 25-year-old Robert Zapata of San Bernardino, and 30-year-old Johnathan Zuniga of Rancho Cucamonga.

 

On Oct. 22, 2011, officers from the Ontario Police Department arrived at an apartment complex and found residents administering aid to 34-year-old Banuelos, who at the time was still on fire.

 

Banuelos identified Hector Meza and three others as her attackers at the scene. While in route to the hospital in the ambulance she spoke her last dying words: “Hector Meza set me on fire. He is abusive and obsessive.”

 

Banuelos was rushed to a hospital but two days later she succumbed to her injuries and died.

Only hours after the attack officers arrested Meza on suspicion of attempted murder.

 

According to Deputy District Attorney Kent Williams, who prosecuted the case, it was later determined by the coroner that the victim had been hit on the head three times with something consistent with a metal bar prior to being set on fire.

 

Meza was sentenced Jan. 4, 2017 to Life in State Prison Without the Possibility of Parole.

 

Zuniga was sentenced to 25 years to life in state prison March 24, 2017.

 

Ramirez is due back in court later this week for a status hearing.

 

Zapata is scheduled to appear in court for a Pre-Trial Hearing June 29.

 

Hernandez faces life in state prison without the possibility of parole when sentenced Aug. 31, 2018.

 

This case was investigated by the Ontario Police Department.

Ontario – A mother was taken into police custody early on May 29, after she, allegedly, struck her boyfriend and their 7-month-old daughter with her vehicle resulting in the child’s death. The boyfriend, and father of the child, suffered minor injuries.

According to investigators, the infant’s mother, 19-year old Sarah Marie Gomez, and her 21-year-old boyfriend and father of the baby, had been drinking at a family party just a few streets away. The couple had been arguing on and off throughout the day.  The couple left the party, with their child, just before midnight and the arguing continued.  Gomez was driving home when her boyfriend got out of the car and took the baby with him. Authorities said Gomez then intentionally struck him with her vehicle while he was carrying their child outside a home on the 500 block of West D Street in Ontario. Family members immediately took the father and child to a hospital where, sadly, the baby died. According to hospital reports, the child’s injuries were consistent with being hit by a car. The father was released from the hospital after receiving treatment for minor scrapes and bruises sustained in the incident.

Police are still investigating the father’s reason for exiting the vehicle with the child. Sgt. Jeff Higbee of the Ontario Police Department said “He got out of the car with the baby, and that’s when she struck them,” “But we’re not certain yet how that happened. That’s still under investigation.” He went on to say “It appears alcohol was involved,”.

Gomez was initially arrested at the hospital and taken to West Valley Detention Center on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. According to court records, she is now being charged with Vehicular Manslaughter with Gross Negligence, Child Cruelty resulting in injury or death and DUI causing bodily injury. She is being held on $100,000 bail.■
