Elba Alonso de Ortega

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.

Organic market, bakery to replace Super A

A new organic and eco-friendly market will open at Alhambra Pacific Plaza, the former site of Super A Foods. Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability Market, or LOHAS Market, will open at 300 W. Main St. by January 2015, according to project architect Simon Lee.

Lee, along with chef Theresa Lin and food expert Joseph Lee, presented Monday to Alhambra City Council plans for a grocery store that will feature fresh and healthy products, as well as cooking lessons.

"We understand in Alhambra we need a high-end but low-price gourmet supermarket," Joseph Lee said. "We're going to have a similar look, like a Whole Foods, but the price is going to be close to a Trader Joe's."

Lin will teach cooking lessons at the store, including recipes for Chinese, Mexican, and Italian cuisines. "I not only teach them how to cook, but I tell them a lot of concepts about how to handle the kitchen," Lin said. "So we can let everybody know how to cook easier, simpler, healthier, and money-wise, saving."

Alhambra Mayor Stephen Sham said he is looking forward to the new store. "It's wonderful. We need something that's in caliber in our downtown," Sham said. “We wish you the best and we want to see the ribbon cutting as soon as possible."

85 Degrees C Bakery Café will also open at the plaza, according to Lee. Known for espresso, decorative cakes, and gourmet baked goods, 85 Degrees currently has locations in Irvine, West Covina, and Hacienda Heights. The Alhambra store will also open in January.

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!
