DOWNY PARK AND ACCESS TRAILS AND ENTRANCES TO THE SANTA ANA RIVER ARE CLOSED DUE TO THE POSSIBLE PRESENCE OF A BACTERIA OUTBREAK IN THE WATER.
Courtesy of City of Jurupa Valley
Downey Park and all access point to the Santa Ana River are closed under the direction of the County Environmental Health and Disease Control Department due to a possible outbreak of the Shigella Bacteria in the riverbed. This bacteria has caused an estimated 600,000 deaths worldwide annually. This disease is more common in young children and complications from Shigella could include blood poisoning infections in the human body. Our Park Rangers are now in the process of closing our City Park and posting the necessary placards/signs that will notify the public of this condition. The County staff will commence their testing of the Santa Ana River in order to confirm or not the existence of this bacteria. To date, 6 patients have tested positive for this bacteria in our county. The City Park at Downy will remain closed until further notice from the County.
The Jurupa Valley Sheriff’s Department along with the City of Jurupa Valley Code Enforcement Officers and Park Rangers will be working together to notify homeless individuals as well as providing assistance as needed.
For more information, contact the City of Jurupa Valley Code Enforcement Department at (951) 332‐6464 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org (Irwin Salas, Senior Code Enforcement Officer)
DO NOT ENTER THE SANTA ANA RIVER AT ANY LOCATION UNTIL THE AREA HAS BEEN CLEARED FOR USE.
If assistance with small or large animal rescues is needed, contact the Western Riverside County Animal Shelter 951-358-7387 during regular business hours. In an after‐hours emergency situation, call 951-358-7387. In the event of a life‐threatening emergency, always call 9‐1‐1.
Eastvale- Tailgate Fest is the first country music festival that caters to the fans who show up hours before the concert to pop a top, drop a tailgate and turn the parking lot…or in our case, hundreds of acres of lush green grass… into the party.
Stay where you are…we are bringing your music to you.
Tailgate Fest brings the stages outside to the tailgate. No packing up the party to head inside, no need to stop that game of cornhole, no need to stuff all your belongings in your pockets or grab sweaters and extras to last you the evening.
Tailgating can continue throughout the whole festival as fans can watch their favorite performers from their personal party setups at their vehicles.
DON’T WANT TO TAILGATE? NO PROBLEM!
For some fans who are “Country AF” but don’t want to tailgate, General Admission Stageside, Pit Passes or even our side stage POOL viewing platform, offer the more traditional experience to get up close to the stage. Yes, we said “pool.” A limited number of people can secure a SUPER VIP pass to kick back with their favorite beverage and plant themselves in the pool while watching the best that Country music has to offer.
The ultimate fan experience – YOUR food, YOUR drinks, YOUR kind of Country Music Festival
EXTREME CORNHOLE CHAMPIONSHIPS
Enter the Tailgate Fest World Cornhole Championships at our Extreme Cornhole Court

You just may win Best In Show. (Entry details coming soon)
TWO STEP HONKY TONK

Chino Hills- On Dec. 19, 2018, a suspect was arrested for the murder of a Chino Hills resident.
Ivan Mejia, 44, was arrested and charged for the murder of Martin Zendejas. The Chino Hills Police Department stated that Mejia attacked Zendejas and beat him to death. Mejia is currently being held at the West Valley Detention Center without bail, according to public inmate records.
Authorities were called to Hotel Chino Hills on Dec. 19, 2018, after a woman ran into the hotel with blood on her clothes screaming for help, according to a Chino Hills PD press release. When police arrived on the scene a man, who was later identified as Martin Zendejas, was found with severe injuries to his head and face.
Martin Zendejas, 54, was said to be in the car with the female in the parking lot of Hotel Chino Hills moments before. Detectives later discovered that Mejia was the boyfriend of the female who was in the vehicle with Mr. Zendejas.
“Mejia pulled the victim out of his car and beat him causing the injuries that led to his death,” said the Chino Hills PD in their press release.
Martin was the brother to former NFL player Tony Zendejas. Martin, Tony, and their brother Javier managed the Zendejas restaurant in San Dimas.
A GoFundMe page was started by Tony to raise money for Martin’s funeral.
“They lost a great man, father, brother & friend. Martin Zendejas was an amazing man that was taken too soon,” according to the page. They hope to raise $25,000.
There’s an outpour of love and support for the Zendejas family in the comments on the campaign.
“So sorry for your loss, Marty was the nicest man, I really enjoyed working at the Restaurant with him a long time ago. Love and Prayers to the Zendejas Family,” commented Yolanda Falciani.

A few years ago, I wrote an article about how food manufactures were reducing the size of their packaging but not reducing the prices they charge for their product.
The most obvious example was with ice cream. In the old days, a standard carton of ice cream was a half-gallon or 64 ounces. If you went to the store to get a “carton” of ice cream, you knew you were purchasing a “half-gallon” – 64 ounces.
But, sometime during the past decade, ice cream manufactures reduced the size of their packages to three pints or 48 ounces. The carton of ice cream looked similar, but the content was 25% less and the price has remained the same!
In the last five years, the orange juice companies changed the size of their packaging, too. One day I discovered that the “Half-gallon” (64 ounces) of orange juice had been reduced to 59 ounces. Again, the packaging looked so similar that you didn’t really notice unless you read the fine print on the container. The price did not go down, but the volume was 10% less.
Recently, when I was shopping at a local market, I noticed that my favorite orange juice carton looked a little different. The package looked similar but a bit smaller. When I read the fine print, I discovered that the new carton of orange juice was now 52 ounces! They reduced the volume by another 10% but the price was still the same!
I suspect there is a conspiracy going on between food manufacturers and grocery stores. Their strategy is to reduce the volume or content of their products but not reduce the prices they charge. I think they assume that the average customer will not notice the difference.
I believe we need a congressional investigation! Where is the Consumer Product Safety Commission when we need it? Where are the government watch dogs who are supposed to protect us from misleading and false advertising?
What will be next? Will grocers start packaging egg cartons with only 10 eggs? Will they start altering the scales in the produce section so that a five pound bag of potatoes will only contain 4 1/2 pounds? Will the pound of ground beef be reduced by 10%?
Where will this conspiracy end?
There is a passage in the Old Testament that warns against defrauding others. “Do not have two different weights in your bag – a heavy one and a lighter one. Do not have two different measuring cups – one large and one smaller. You must have accurate and honest weights and measures (when you buy and sell) (Deuteronomy 25:13-15).
You have heard the phrase “Buyer Beware”. That is still true today. Let me encourage you to read the labels carefully at your grocery store. Read the fine print that tells you the real size and weight of the contents. Don’t be misled or confused. And, you may want to write to your local Congressman and request a Congressional investigation, too!

Chino- Different members of the city of Chino have joined together to create a movement called “Chino Cares.”
Chino Cares is a movement with the ultimate goal to unite each group in the diverse Chino community. They plan to do this by asking members to pledge to five things: Be informed, be prepared, be connected, be committed, and be supportive. These pledges mean members must remain informed about the city, sign up for Chino’s mass communication system, commit to the safety of their neighbor, be prepared for disaster, and show support for the city by attending city events.
More than 200 city employees have pledged their allegiance to the campaign. The movement began with only city employees but has now expanded to allow residents, business owners, and organizations to join. Chino Cares believes that it is important for everyone to participate in the making of a more resilient community.
Since the expansion of membership to other parts of the community, there have been 180 households and eight businesses/organizations who have pledged to Chino Cares.
“We want to make our community even stronger so that we will be more resilient and recover more quickly when disaster strikes,” said Christin Wolff, the founder of Chino Cares.
Chino Cares hopes the concept of their movement will eventually reach every city across the nation.
“In a nation where communities are dividing over their differences, the City of Chino is looking to unify under the one sentiment that is common across the spectrum – ‘We Care’,” said the City of Chino website.
The campaign has provided special events for people in the community to meet members serving in the movement.
“We intend to do more of this in the future, bringing City Hall into our neighborhoods as another example of the ways in which ‘Chino Cares’,” said Christin Wolff.
The Chino Cares motto is, “Resilience through Unity.”

An Unauthorized Biography of Media Personality & Father of 3 Basketball Players, LaVar Ball
Growing up near Basketball Dad, LaVar Ball, was beyond interesting to teenagerMarissa Mitchell. A quiet, studious girl, she was fascinated by the boisterous man that lived in her neighborhood. Marissa began training with LaVar while his sons were still very young, becoming his first protégé. LaVar put her through the paces, seemingly testing on her the training methods he would one day use on his sons.
LaVar grew up within the inner city of Los Angeles and took part of the hood with him to the city of Chino Hills. There, he raised three amazingly athletic sons. Marissa couldn’t believe she was a part of this dynamic, loving family. After she graduated college and began her teaching career, she reunited with LaVar with the idea to write his biography. Once she was back in the circle, she was tasked with becoming a Jill-of-all-trades for Big Baller Media. During this time, Marissa interviewed LaVar repeatedly, questioning him as to how the Ball brothers ascended to national stardom. She applied for trademarks, set up the company website, corresponded with news outlets, and continued to work on the book. Ultimately, she was unceremoniously fired after attempting to receive compensation for her services and establishing a legitimate contract.
In We Ballin’, Marissa looks back on the wild ride that was the LaVar Ball experience from his early days to his very public Twitter war with Donald Trump and beyond. Through it all, she examines how LaVar was able to harness his sheer determination in preparing his sons for professional basketball and build a company that was intended to become a disrupter in the sports industry.
Her story takes the reader with her as she examines how LaVar Ball was able to succeed, the amazing techniques he used to train his boys to play basketball, and how they all handled the onslaught of publicity that followed them everywhere they went. Was LaVar Ball a calculating businessman, a carnival barker, or something in-between? Marissa was surprised at the things she learned from the man who turned the world of basketball upside-down, including lessons about herself and what’s really important in life.
