As a career journalist and EJ advocate, I see community-based media like the Alhambra Source as crucial to democracy and equality.

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.

City commends residents, retiring officers at council meeting

City Council commended Alhambra residents on Monday for the accomplishments they've made in their respective endeavors.

Among the honorees were three police officers who are retiring from the Alhambra Police Department. They are Reserve Lieutenant Lou Scalera (who'd been with the force for 43 years), Reserve Captain Rick Rivera (37 years), and Reserve Lieutenant Bill Clark (34 years). 

Alhambra High School alum Karina Meza was also commended for achievements as a student athlete. Meza plays for Southern Vermont College's women's soccer team and was named Player of the Week by the New England Collegiate Conference. She was also named to the 2015 Academic All-District Women's Soccer Team by the College Sports Information Directors of America. This latter recognition was based on both her on-field and academic achievements.

The Alhambra Youth Flag Football All-Star Team was also honored for winning the championship in the 2015 Southern California Municipal Athletic Federation Tournament. Members of the team include Tommy Moreno, Spencer Tang, Jose Ortiz, Michael Hang, Nathan Marin, Hugo Montes, Jacob Moreno, Brandon Navarro, Kevin Ayala, Alejandro Quintanar, Head Coach Jose Gutierrez, Assistant Coach Jacob Torres, and Assistant Coach Sinmen Tse.

The City also awarded the winners of the 2015 Holiday Home Decorating Contest, which was held to encourage residents to get "festive" with their Christmas lawn decorations. The Ductoc family won for "Best Overall Lawn Display," Ronald Lopez topped the "Best Animation" category, Gary Taylor received the "Most Creative" award, and Peter and Marlina Ramos took home the "Best Use of Lights" award.

When asked what had inspired her and her husband, Marlina Ramos said, "Our neighbors are very competitive." The chamber room responded with laughter.
