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.

Efren Moreno, Former Alhambra Mayor

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

Jeff Maloney, Alhambra City Council Member

The Source has become an important source for news, public interest, and serious journalism in our community. Keep it up!

Chris Olson

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.

Adele Andrade Stadler, Alhambra Mayor

The Source is a great independent newspaper that celebrates the communities and is not afraid to ask the tough questions!

Cliff Bender, Vice President, Alhambra Education Foundation

Alhambra Source is the ONLY independent news source covering the events, culture and government of our city. We need it to stay informed and aware!

Joyce & Oscar Amaro, Alhambra Preservation Group

We support Alhambra Source because this online news source is vitally important in engaging, informing and educating the residents of Alhambra.

I support the Alhambra Source because journalism will always be part of that fourth branch of our democracy. The Alhambra Source provides me with news that helps me make informed decisions about issues that matter to me and my community. Thank you for the work you do.

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. 

Independent journalism is a bedrock of democracy--and it's in crisis. Here at the Alhambra Source, we're committed to covering the local stories that matter most to you. We don’t have advertisers and we don’t have pay walls, but we do have bills. You read to the end of this story. That's great. But this kind of journalism will end without public support. Join us! Support the work and the democratic values it serves. Donate now!
