County Hospital Is Now A Level One Trauma Center

The Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton, the main campus of San Bernardino County’s county hospital, has been certified as a Level 1 trauma center.
According to the American Trauma Society, a Level I trauma center is a comprehensive regional resource that is capable of dealing with severely injured patients. A Level I trauma center is capable of providing total care for every aspect of injury – from prevention through rehabilitation. Elements of Level I trauma centers include 24-hour in-house coverage by general surgeons, and prompt availability of care in specialties such as orthopedic surgery, neurosurgery, anesthesiology, emergency medicine, radiology, internal medicine, plastic surgery, oral and maxillofacial, pediatric and critical care, as well as referral resource for communities in nearby regions. Level 1 trauma centers provide leadership in prevention, public education to surrounding communities and provide continuing education of the trauma team members, while incorporating a comprehensive quality assessment program. Level 1 trauma centers are also required to operate an organized teaching and research effort to help direct new innovations in trauma care, make available a program for substance abuse screening and patient intervention and meet minimum requirements for accommodating a set annual volume of severely injured patients based upon the population being served.

Fontana, Unlike Redlands, Balks Over Raising Limits Where Motorists Speed

A half of a year after the Redlands City Council raised the ire of a cross section of the community there by increasing the speed limit on 45 spans of roadway in that 36.43-square mile city because well over three quarters of drivers in that jurisdiction were exceeding the previously posted limits in those areas, the Fontana City Council resisted doing the same this month.
At issue is a statewide law and speed enforcement policy which calls upon cities to use a standard of the 85th percentile of the average speed along a given road as the speed limit that is to be posted. Cities are required to do a several-day long survey of speeds driven along its streets and roads at least once every seven to eight years. Under a law that has been in effect for decades, along with multiple court interpretations of that law over that period of time, if more than 15 percent of drivers surveyed along a particular stretch of road exceed the posted speed limit by more than ten miles an hour, anyone cited for excessive speed along those roads who cite the survey can have their speeding citations automatically dismissed.

After Suit, Rancho Cucamonga Opting Out Of The Tow Truck Franchising Process

Legally challenged by one of the region’s most aggressively expanding towing service operators, the City of Rancho Cucamonga is discontinuing its franchising of tow truck operators.
In October 1978, Jose Acosta, using a single Ford 350 pick-up truck, went into the vehicle towing business in Los Angeles as Pepe’s Towing. He and his wife, Delfina, gradually expanded the business over the years, and by 1987, two of their sons, Jose Jr. and Manuel, were integral parts of the operation and energetically pushed the business eastward along the I-10 Freeway corridor through the Los Angeles County communities of Monterey Park, Alhambra, Rosemead, El Monte, Baldwin Park, West Covina, East Covina Pomona, Claremont and then into San Bernardino County, from Montclair to Upland, Ontario, Rancho Cucamonga, Fontana, Bloomington, Rialto, Colton, Grand Terrace, San Bernardino, Loma Linda and Redlands and ultimately south along the 215 Freeway to Riverside.
Despite the flourishing of his business, Jose Acosta proved less than adept at managing to get onto the towing rotations of the various police departments in the communities in which he was operating. Those rotations – which are regulated and controlled by the Highway Patrol, the various police departments and the sheriff’s departments in both Los Angeles and San Bernardino County, which provide contract law enforce services in those cities and incorporated towns which do not have municipal police departments – are virtual franchises. Obtaining such a franchise or being placed on the tow rotation guarantees that tow companies will get, at the very least, a minimal amount of work to allow the businesses to survive and in some cases a substantial amount of work to allow the tow companies to realize a huge profit.

If Your Car Has Been Stolen, You Might Want To Think About Getting A Hold Of This Guy

Those who have had their cars stolen and have had no luck in recovering them may want to consider contacting Montclair Police Officer Salvador Herrera.
Herrera is a five-time recipient of California Highway Patrol 10851 Pins and is now considered a “master” stolen car recovery specialist.
The criteria for receiving a single 10851 award consists of an officer, while serving in a patrol capacity, during a 12 month period either a) makes six separate incident rolling stolen in-custody arrests, or b) recovers a total of 12 stolen vehicles, of which a minimum of 3 must be rolling, or c) develops information resulting in the identification of a vehicle theft ring, with subsequent arrests of two or more suspects and the recovery of at least 10 vehicles.
“10851” is the California Vehicle Code Section for Grand Theft Auto (GTA). Continue reading

County Settling Into Juneteenth As Latest National Holiday Celebration

In 2023, four of San Bernardino County’s 24 municipalities have African-American mayors and three of its cities have African-American city managers.
This year, two years after Juneteenth, which derives its name from the combination of June and nineteenth, was recognized as a federal holiday by President Joe Biden in 2021, it was at last widely celebrated, with many businesses coming around to grant their employees a day off work to celebrate it.
Juneteenth had its origin in 1865 in Galveston, Texas, when Major General Gordon Granger ordered that June 19th of that year be celebrated as the approximate two-and-one-half year anniversary of the issuance of the Emancipation Proclamation, as an emphatic proclaiming of the freedom of the formerly enslaved people of Texas. Juneteenth over time was observed annually in various parts of the United States, often broadly as a celebration of African-American culture.
Given the manner in which four-twentyfourths or one sixth of the heads of municipal government in San Bernardino County are currently African-American and three-twentyfourths of the administrative heads of municipal government in San Bernardino County are African-American – ratios both more favorable than the roughly one-eleventh of the overall American population that is composed of African-Americans – it has been observed that it is the rest of the country that is catching up with San Bernardino County rather than the other way around.
In observance of Juneteenth, all county offices were closed on Monday and there were events to commemorate the day and spirit at many locations around the county.
In Twentynine Palms, two days early, on Saturday June 17, some 400 people celebrated Juneteenth at a gala event at Knott Sky Park hosted by Mayor McArthur Wright.
“Grace and peace be unto you, beloved community of Twentynine Palms,” began Wright. “Today, as we gather on this sacred Juneteenth, I stand before you not only as your mayor but as a member of the Black community, proud of our rich heritage and the resilience that flows through our veins. Today, we embark on a journey of reflection, remembrance, and inspiration — a journey that embraces the true meaning of Juneteenth.
As we reflect on our history, we are reminded of the struggles and the sacrifices endured by our ancestors. From the horrors of slavery to the fight for civil rights, their determination and unwavering spirit paved the way for the freedom we cherish today. We remember their names, their stories and their indomitable faith, knowing that their legacy lives on within us.”
Wright continued, “Juneteenth holds a special place in our hearts. On that fateful day in 1865, news of emancipation reached the shores of Galveston, Texas, proclaiming freedom for the last enslaved African Americans. It was a proclamation that echoed across the land, igniting a flame of hope and joy. Today, we remember the joy of liberation and celebrate the progress made since that historic moment.
“As your mayor, I am dedicated to fostering an inclusive community where every resident, regardless of their background, feels welcomed, respected and valued,” Wright said. “We will continue to work towards creating opportunities for economic empowerment, educational equity and social justice. Together, we can build a community that embraces the principles of equality and celebrates the diversity that enriches our city. As we navigate this journey, let us draw strength and inspiration from the examples set by our ancestors. They fought with unwavering courage, resilience and faith. They believed in a future where equality and justice would prevail. Their hope is our torch, guiding us toward a brighter tomorrow.”
Wright declared, “Beloved community, on this Juneteenth, let us unite our hearts and voices in celebration of our freedom. Let us remember the struggles of the past, honor the heroes who paved the way, and commit ourselves to building a future where justice and equality are not just aspirations but living realities. May we never forget the journey that brought us here, nor the journey that lies ahead. With God as our guide and the spirit of unity as our strength, we will press forward, knowing that the struggle for freedom and justice is ongoing. Let us continue to stand shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand, as we build a community that honors the past, embraces the present and creates a better future for generations to come.”
In closing, Wright said, “May the grace of God be with us and may the spirit of Juneteenth forever inspire us to strive for a world where all are truly free. Amen.”

Victorville To Outspend Its Revenue By More Than $16 Million in 2023-24

It appears that for at least the second year running, Victorville will have the second largest amount of money flowing into its coffers among all municipal governments in San Bernardino County, surpassing four county cities with larger populations, while simultaneously having the third largest operating budget among the county’s cities.
In terms of population, Victorville is San Bernardino County’s fifth largest city, with 134,810 people living within its city limits at the time of the 2020 census. In that regard, it lags behind San Bernardino, Fontana, Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga.
In income and spending, however, it surpasses all cities in the county other than Ontario.
This upcoming year, running from July 1, 2023 until June 30, 2024, Victorville will have $328,695,053.21 in revenue and $345,055,841.82 in expenses.
That means the city will engage in $16,360,788.61 in deficit spending over the next twelve months. It will make up for the difference by drawing against the city’s reserves. Continue reading
