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!”

The eggs come in all sizes and colors, depending on your needs. Whatever you choose, you will not be disappointed.

Voortman’s is centrally located just minutes from Chino and Eastvale at 13960 Grove Avenue in Ontario (just north of Edison). You can reach Voortman’s at (909) 465-1319; and Like them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/pages/Voortmans-Egg-Ranch.

SGV-IE: Costco Secrets To Shopping

According to “Epic Dash”, Costco has a secret to their pricing. Apparently some things are full price, some are sales, some are clearance, and some are Managers Specials. Read more:
Avoid products with prices ending in .99 – these are full price.1-costco

Items with prices ending in .97 are deals decided by the store manager. These won’t be around for long and can offer amazing discounts.2-costco

Prices ending in .49 or .79 are a manufacturers special offer. These prices usually apply to products which are heaving a trial run and are usually priced cheaper than their retail price.3-costco

Watch out for products that end in .00, the manager wants these items off the shelf for good. That means that they’re priced down and nearly out of stock.4-costco

Labels with an asterisk are reserved for items that are discontinued. Usually, these are priced cheaply to get them off shelves.5-costco

Is it weird I feel like I’m part of a secret club or something?

Ontario: Town Square Public Art Project

STAFF REPORTS

Ontario — The City of Ontario issued a Request for Proposal on Jan. 15, 2014 to solicit mural designs for the new Ontario Town Square. Artists can submit designs in various forms of media, such as drawing, painting, or photography. The artist whose design is selected will be paid a flat fee of $5,000 for their services, and will have their work featured onto the back wall of the band shell that is being constructed for the Ontario Town Square.

In order to have proposals considered, artists must first have attended one of two informational meetings that were held on Feb. 6 and 8 at the Museum of History and Art in Ontario. Prospective artists must also provide a statement describing their approach to their design that is no more than one page in length, a list of references from both past and current clients within the last five years, and five to ten images of the artist’s previous work. Proposals must be submitted online by Mar. 7 at 4:00 p.m., using the online Bid Portal on the City Website.

Submitted proposals will be judged on the quality and creativity of each artist’s previous work, and their recommendations or references. The designs submitted must be able to convey the character and identity of the City of Ontario, and demonstrate an obvious aesthetic quality. Finally, the designs will be judged on the reproducible quality of the artwork at the full scale of 6’ x 24’, as the winning design will have to be enlarged and printed onto 8 inch tiles before being installed in the Town Square. The final proposal will be selected on Mar. 14, 2014.

For more information on the Ontario Town Square’s Public Art Project, contact the Ontario Purchasing Department at (909) 395-2012.

The City of Ontario has another public art project planned for later this year. The theme is said to be related to conservation and recycling, and will involve the creation and installation of a sculpture.

Ontario: Elderly Scam

ONTARIO POLICE DEPARTMENT REPORT

Ontario – The Ontario Police Department is warning its residents, in particular its elderly residents, about a scam that has surfaced recently.  A total of six arrests have been made during this investigation, along with the recovery of thousands of dollars provided by at least four elderly victims, who reside in two different states.

Detectives have investigated several cases in which elderly victims were contacted via telephone by a suspect pretending to be the victim’s grandson. The caller (suspect) has personal information about the victim to include the victim’s location of residence, birth date and full identifying information about the grandchild they are impersonating.

In an incident that occurred on Jan. 30, the suspect, claiming to be the victim’s grandchild, telephoned the victim to say he had been arrested and was being held in a California jail. The suspect franticly pleads with the victim to send a large amount of money (in cash) to a residence in Ontario, California.

The victim (a 92-year-old Amarillo, Texas resident) spoke with a second subject who claimed to be, but is actually impersonating, a law enforcement officer.  That suspect directs the victim to deliver a large amount of money to a specific location in the City of Ontario, California. The victim, sensing something was wrong with the request, alerted local law enforcement and sent an empty package to the requested drop point in Ontario.

Ontario Police Detectives were made aware of the pending money pick up and during their investigation contacted a male and female who were discovered waiting where the money was to be delivered. The suspects were arrested after being found in possession of the package sent from Amarillo, Texas.

During further investigation, Detectives discovered three other victims who were scammed in a similar manner. One elderly victim sent a number of packages totaling $210,000 in cash from her Nebraska home to several destinations in the Inland Empire area (California). Unfortunately, only a small portion of that money was intercepted, causing that victim to suffer a substantial loss.

Two other elderly victims (for a total of four victims), who also reside in Texas and Nebraska, were scammed in a similar manner as well. These victims sent nearly $15,000 in cash to various locations in the Inland Empire area (California). Luckily, this money was intercepted and returned to the victims.

The two subjects arrested in Ontario have been identified as Desiree Marie Delgado, 19, of Fontana, and James Michael Colangelo, 19, of Fontana.

During further investigation, searches were conducted in the cities of Bloomington, Fontana and Rialto. This follow-up resulted in four additional arrests, along with the recovery of further evidence linking all six arrestees to the scam.

The additional arrestees are identified as Jose Fernando Garcia, 45, of Bloomington, Juan Martinez Lopez, 41, of Rialto, Walter Alexander Ayala, 29, of Fontana, and Mikaela Marie Bosch, 19, of Fontana.

All arrestees were booked into the West Valley Detention Center (Rancho Cucamonga) for various charges to include grand theft, identity theft, theft from an elder, elder abuse and conspiracy. Colangelo and Bosch were additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance (methamphetamine).

Ontario Police warn residents to be cautious of anyone who calls and asks for money in such an unusual manner. Regardless of who the caller claims to be, it is best to contact someone of authority to independently confirm the caller’s identity. Police also recommend contacting a family member of the alleged caller (grandchild) in an attempt to confirm the grandchild’s location.

Ontario Police Detectives are concerned there may be other victims of this scam. Anyone who has been contacted in a similar manner or feels they have been victimized by this scam is asked to c

Liposuction Without The Suction

By Michael Armijo

Claremon – Body Sculpting is best described as an alternate way to lose body fat in specific areas that are hard to reach, including under arms, love handles, inner thighs, or even the breast area on a man. The procedure seems to be relatively new, but it’s actually an old technique that is revised.

So upon visiting the Premier Body Sculpt Center in Upland, I was a bit skeptical about their “amazing new technology coming to work.” The combination of Ultrasonic Cavitation and Radio Frequency (RF) was said to show amazing results without the inconvenience, pain and down-time of surgery. But the skeptics are over.

This non-invasive liposuction technology works by using sonic energy and vibration to destroy and collapse fat cells, thereby facilitating the body’s natural process to metabolize and move fat out through the lymphatic system. Unlike liposuction, and for a fraction of the cost, results can be seen immediately with no bruising, swelling, or scars.

The best way to describe it would be: imagine getting a huge bag and placing small water balloons inside. Then imagine tapping the bag until the water balloons break. This same concept is applied to Body Sculpting. It liquefies the fat and then the body processes the fat through the urine. Sounds different, but the body processes the fat this way, and the results are immediate, with further results through the week.

When I experienced Body Sculpting myself, all I had to do was lie down and sit up while the three step process was administered. The ultrasound radio frequency was a bit different, as sound waves emit through your body. That’s what ultrasound is, an emission of sound waves. But this is at a higher rate, and this is how fat is broken down. And when it emits, I can actually hear sound coming out of my ears. It took a moment to get used to, but eventually it didn’t faze me a bit.

When it comes to my health, I am on it. I need to know all the facts, the downsides, and the repercussions. I am a diabetic, so I am always some type of risk. But what gave me confidence was the technician is an RN, BSN, and Aesthetic Specialist. Linell Wagers administers the sound wave procedure, but also works the emergency room at a local hospital (I called to check too).

I could not find anything negative about the procedure, just opinion. But I did see results right away and the before and after pictures were alarming. I did three sessions and I am pleased with the results so far. The procedure is a bit pricey, but we agreed if we were to educate the community, a special price has to be offered. So the $249 procedure is only $49 for our readers. Yes, $49.

I personally like the results and I am going back to do more. I do recommend Body Sculpting and I also recommend you check out their website, watch the video, and make the best decision for yourself. If you have any further questions or would like to know more about my experience, feel free to ask me at coronavalleymike@gmail.com.

Premier Body Sculpt is located at Premier Body Sculpt is located 250 W First #116 in Claremont. You can reach them at 1-(855) 8-SCULPT or visit their website at www.premierbodysculpt.com.
