Be Safe This Thanksgiving 


​If you’re thinking of deep-frying a turkey this year, the Rialto Fire Department wants to remind everyone to BE SAFE and follow these tips:

1. Stay Away from The House – Set up the turkey fryer more than 10 feet away from your home and keep children and pets away. Never leave it unattended.
2. Find Flat Ground – The oil must be even and steady at all times to ensure safety. Place the fryer on a flat, level surface and carefully gauge the amount of oil needed.
3. Use a Thawed and Dry Turkey – Make sure your Thanksgiving turkey is completely thawed and dry. Extra water will cause the oil to bubble furiously and spill over. If oil spills from the fryer onto the burner, it can cause a fire.
4. Monitor the Temp – Use caution when touching the turkey fryer. The lid and handle can become very hot and could cause burns. Also be sure to keep track of the oil’s temperature as many fryers do not have their own thermostats.
5. Be Prepared – Have a fire extinguisher (multipurpose, dry-powder) ready at all times in the event that the oil ignites.

Rialto PD Community Liason Cpl. Cameron Nelson shops with kids

RIALTO – The lights and siren on Rialto police Cpl. Cameron Nelson’s patrol car left 5-year-old Nicholas Mingl doubting it had anything to do with Christmas.

“This ain’t a Santa sleigh,” the Rialto boy said.

But thanks to Rialto police officers who took needy children on a Christmas shopping spree Wednesday, the boy’s outlook on the police and the holidays grew brighter.

Law enforcement and fire agencies around the Inland Empire have been holding gift-giveaways for disadvantaged families the last few weeks. Many police departments participated in Shop With a Cop-style events, using donations to take children to stores for presents.

“These kids would not have a Christmas if it wasn’t for this,” said Karen Huerta, Nicholas’ grandmother.

Rialto police took 14 children to Walmart in Rialto, buying each child $50 in presents and another $40 for their parents or guardians. Families filled out applications and were selected by officers based on need.

“Hopefully it gives them a better outlook on police officers – that we’re not just enforcers,” Nelson said.

The Kiwanis Club, Rialto’s Police Officer Benefit Association and other donors pitched in for the gift money.

Rialto Officer Cheri Schaffer walked the aisles with 6-year-old Julina Castro, who picked a few dolls and some clothes off the shelves. She also used some of her $50 to buy her mother a present.

“It makes you feel good to come out with the kids and see their faces light up,” Schaffer said.

San Bernardino police used a different method to select children for their Shop With a Cop event. Police detectives picked children who were victims in physical abuse cases.

Detectives, along with officers in uniform, accompanied nine children ranging from 5 to about 12-years-old, for a shopping spree. The department received $1,500 in donations from the Walmart Foundation.

“It lets them know that your case is done, but we didn’t forget you,” said police Lt. Paul Williams.

In Redlands, police took 27 children to Target, where they bought $1,800 in presents through police and community donations.

Other agencies may not call their events “Shop With a Cop,” but it’s the same concept.

Fontana police, who call their shopping spree “Heroes and Helpers” took 50 children shopping at Target on Dec. 15. They were selected by school district officials who recognized the children had a need for holiday help.

But it wasn’t just police officers who took children on shopping sprees.

Colton firefighters, along with the Colton Unified School District and Walmart donated money so 50 needy children could each receive $100 Christmas presents.

Rialto’s Annual Car Show

Every June Rialto gets to show off our local cars, interest has been dropping a little bit but it’s still a cool little show.

I miss the days where it was a 2 day event which consisted of show and shine with burn out contest at the airport Friday night. Then Saturday it’s the full show with vendors and open header contests.

The show used to fill up Riverside Ave from Foothill to the very bottom of down town, now it just barely fills in the down town borders.

Even in its current shape it’s still a great show I have many fond memories at the show and once I get a job I don’t have to work weekends I will be able to share it again with my daughter.

Below are the details:

Run Whatcha Brung Car Show XIX – Saturday, June 9, 2012 Downtown Rialto, California

Dining choices are few

I have lived in Rialto since 1969 and during that time the leadership in this community has done little or nothing to attract quality businesses.

There is no Target, Office Max, Best Buy, etc. I am amazed when I venture to north Fontana and see the businesses in the Summit Center. How did Fontana succeed when all we get from the Rialto mayor and her cronies are empty promises of a Target and an In-N-Out? One of the promises was if they built a new fire station that the land left vacant would be used to build an In-N-Out.

I am still waiting to order my double-double.

Other than Carrows and Corky’s, there is not even a good sit-down family restaurant north of Base Line. There are discount 99-cent stores and fast-food places.

What did the leadership of this community do with the money that they already had? They are bemoaning the fact that they will lose redevelopment money but what happened to the funds prior to this?

Since they squandered the funds in the past I will not support a raise in water and sewer rates and I encourage others to oppose the increase as well.
