Pomona's newest blog, Ren's Corner Blog, has photos of Friday's fire in Lincoln Park.
Speaking of fires, did you know that Garey Avenue - between the Planned Parenthood Building and the Shell Gas Station - was the scene of the LONE PALM TREE FIRE OF 2007?
In a joint effort by the Shell Corporation and the City of Pomona, a barely living (if not completely dead) memorial still stands at the site.
As you can see, careful attention has been paid to every last detail of the memorial, which features a charred stump and dried frongs arranged atop in abstract fashion.
Anyone coming off the 10 freeway at Garey, pumping gas at the local Shell, retrieving last minute birth control supplies from Planned Parenthood, or simply passing by on Pomona's main drag, is treated 24/7 to the MEMORIAL OF THE LONE PALM TREE FIRE OF 2007. I believe that's 5,000 drivebys a day, per CalWatch's recent traffic statistics. Oh wait, if you look closely at the photo again, you can see that even passing trucks on the 10 freeway can view down onto the memorial.
