I’m a lifelong resident of Alhambra and having a local newspaper, like Alhambra Source, is very important to me. It’s the only way to know the issues that will directly affect my day to day, where I live. That’s why I decided to support Alhambra Source with a monthly donation.

Thank you Alhambra Source for truly informing the residents of Alhambra.

I support Alhambra Source as often as I can because I believe a free and independent press is vital to the democratic process. No other news outlet with high journalistic standards consistently covers the stories and issues that matter to our community.

Alhambra PD Color Guard presents colors at Ducks game

The Alhambra Police Department Color Guard presented the colors at Wednesday's Anaheim Ducks game at the Honda Center. The presentation was part of the hockey team's "First Responder Appreciation Night," an effort to honor local law enforcement, according to the Ducks’ website. The Ducks also donated $5 from each sold ticket to Wednesday's game to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund.

Alhambra PD was one of four law enforcement agencies to present the colors before the game. It was an honor for the department to be included, according to Sgt. Jerry Johnson. “We are very proud to pay tribute to and represent our brothers and sisters in law enforcement at this event," he said.

This was not the color guard's first time at a sports game—the group presented the colors at a Dodgers game two years ago. The Alhambra PD Color Guard usually presents during Alhambra's Veterans Day and Memorial Day ceremonies, special events at City Hall, and when new police officers are sworn in, Johnson said.

Alhambra PD Color Guard ceremonies typically include a group of officers marching with the U.S. and California flags, along with sabres and rifles. The presentation is sometimes accompanied by the Pledge of Allegiance or the national anthem.

The Alhambra PD Color Guard members are Officer David Tran, Officer Eric Ybarra, Cpl. Bob Torrance, and Sgt. Joe Mallette.
