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.

Enchiladas, roast duck, pernil — and turkey: An Alhambra Thanksgiving

Reporter Corps members spoke with dozens of Alhambra residents about how they plan to celebrate Thanksgiving. No two answers were the same. Listen to a selection of responses below — from heading to Vegas with family to feeling gratitude despite discovering breast cancer to indulging in a dinner of arroz con gandules and ham — or choose the individual's story below that interests you.

I just found out today that I have breast cancer, so I'm very thankful for the mammogram, the technician who read it, and the folks at kaiser who are taking such good care of me. I thank the lord for the life he's given me and I pray for many, many more years. — Catherine Alexander

Since I don’t really celebrate with family, I was just going to see what my friends are up to and celebrate with them. It’s not a big deal. — Felix Tsai

Just being with family, enjoying a meal together, and watching some football.— Patrick Garcia

I’m going to go to Las Vegas and have some Turkey with my parents in a hotel. — Jason Fong

I’ve lived in Alhambra for the last 24 years. I’m a descendant of William Bradford, English descent, old American, and I think of that. — Diana Green

I’m grateful that I don’t have to have another hip implant. That the crime is very little and that my daughters have lived here all their lives and achieved so much. — Frank Romero

When I was a kid my parents used to take us to the marine base near where we lived in Florida and we would take some marines back with us. As a young kid it was great to have. — Mark Trulsen

It’s just very traditional, turkey and stuffing, potato and corn. Drinks and chips and pies….Mainly it’s just having my whole family together, because part of my family lives in Mexico. — Veronica Santoyo

We have traditional Puerto Rican food, plus a turkey and a ham. Our traditional plate will be arroz con gandules, pernil, and platanos fritos. — Linda Young

The morning usually play a golf tournament and in the afternoon get with my cousins and we have a big Thanksgiving dinner. — Eric Hesse

When we gather around the table we all say something we’re thankful for before we eat dinner, and we say a prayer. — Kareena Vasquez

Before we used to just eat duck and chicken, but now actual bird. More traditional. — Tiffany Su

I celebrate with two sides of my family. The Mexican side and the Salvadoran side. …Funny thing about both sides is there isn’t a big turkey…Salvadoran side we use the turkey to make sandwiches. Mexican side we have enchiladas. — Bryan Ramos

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!
