“Meeting teens where they are is vital to successful prevention methods,” said David Phillips a Rialto Community Coalition member. Many times we see Skateboarders as bad kids or trouble makers but once you get to know them and learn more about skateboarding you can see all the talent and potential that lies within”. As the Neighborhood Watch Captain of the Flores Park Group and being involved in many different other community groups, I understand that it is vital to reach out to our youth, especially starting with the skateboarders. There was a stretch where the skate parks were having issues with drugs and gangs. The key to safety was getting adults in the community to invest in a safe atmosphere for teens to skateboard.  It takes more that money it takes personal time”.

The Rialto Community Coalition hopes to add to the success of their other public forum at Eisenhower High School  called “Don’t Go There” where they used exhibits, media, and a powerful presentation from Ray Lozano to highlight the dangers of using drugs and alcohol. At the upcoming #SoberSkater event, participants will be asked to sign a pledge that states that they choose to be a Sober Skater. Also, the planning committee chose the name #SoberSkater to help attract teenagers on social media using hashtags since this is the way teens interact and seek out information on social media sites.

Michael Townsend, a Prevention Specialist with Central Valley Prevention Program, had this to say about the #SoberSkater event:

“The best way to prevent underage drinking and drug use is to identify the target population, develop ways to reach them, and increase enforcement during high risk times.  By hosting the #SoberSkater event, the Rialto Community Coalition is doing exactly that.  They have identified Thanksgiving break as a high risk time for underage drinking and drug use and they have identified skaters as their target population.  In addition, they are working closely with the Rialto Police Department regarding their enforcement efforts. The Rialto Community Coalition members realize that having youth, who have made a commitment to sobriety, speaking directly to other youth, is a very effective method of getting their message out.  So the coalition has engaged youth in this campaign to reduce social hosting.”

The event will include a semi-pro skateboard team called NAI (New Age Intelligence), gourmet food trucks, live music, vendors, and resource providers. There will also be a best trick contest. For more information, visit their Facebook event page at the link below.

Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown Introduced Her First Bill to Assist Small Businesses

Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown Introduced Her First Bill to Assist Small Businesses

SACRAMENTO – Assemblymember Cheryl R. Brown (D-San Bernardino) introduced her first bill of the legislative session yesterday, AB 285, which will expand the definition of a microenterprise.  This bill is necessary to enhance the technical services available to small businesses in California.

 

Microenterprises are business that are started for less than $35,000 and lack access to traditional loans and capital. California has three million microenterprises that employ over four million people. AB 285 will provide microenterprises with increased resources to help them grow.

 

“I’m pleased to introduce my first bill, AB 285, a bill to support small business growth and job creation in our state.  AB 285 will improve the quality of life for residents in the 47th District by promoting small business growth, which will translate to job creation within some of our district’s highest unemployment areas,” said Assemblymember Brown, “Small businesses are so important because they provide a majority of jobs and it is vital for our economy that we continue to push policies that assist in their growth. Passing this legislation will be my top priority.”

 

Under current law, a microenterprise is classified as a business with four or fewer employees including the business owner. AB 285 will allow for a firm to employ five employees including the business owner. Additionally, this bill will allow local workforce investment boards to provide entrepreneurial training programs and specialized assistance to microenterprises.

 

The bill was introduced yesterday and has been moved to the Assembly Rules Committee for assignment to the appropriate policy committee.

Coffee with the Chief February

Come out to this month’s coffee with a chief. This month it will be located at Carrows Restaurant on Baseline Ave.

I have found this event as a great way to connect with Rialto’s Top Cop and learn what’s going on within the confines of police work in Rialto.

Chief Tony Farrar has worked tirelessly to put together programs that help his police make Rialto a place to learn, live, work and play. Command staff that normally attends these meetings is Cap. Deanda, Lt. Karol and Community Liaison Officer Cpl. Neilson.

If you have a desire to know what’s going on you should attend.

If you have questions regarding Rialto’s Law Enforcement you should attend.

If you live, work, own a business or rental property you should attend.

See the Image below for details and we will see you there.
