Parts of Pomona took a beating physically in the earthquake yesterday. Combine that with the public relations beating we take everyday and well, Ouch! It's nice to know that we do have plenty of people and organizations devoted to propping up Pomona. To name a few:
The Downtown Pomona Owners Association . Find out all about them in this info-film, which shares their accomplishments and future goals.
Daily Bulletin columnist David Allen devoted most of his Wednesday column to things to do in Pomona. And Ed, over at M-M-M-My POmona has been doing a great job of inventoring weekly events in Pomona, and pointing out that Pomona is not nearly as violent a place as our surrounding cities.
And lastly, three cheers go out to Victory Outreach, who does their part to help a certain segment of society. Their building on Garey across from the public library appears to have suffered a crack or two on the tower portion.
