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.

Such a valuable source of what’s happening in city where we live. Objective reporting that informs us and allows us to come to our own conclusions.

The Alhambra Lunar New Year Festival in pictures

Saturday's Lunar New Year Festival, an annual tradition in Alhambra, was a treat for all the senses. A cover band performed renditions of "Hey Jude" and "Proud Mary." Young martial artists yelled and huffed as they executed their moves. The smell of papusas and takoyaki permeated the air (some visitors were less than enthused about the stinky tofu). 

Alhambra Source had its own booth at the festival. We spoke with visitors about their concerns for the city, and the types of stories they want to see on our website. Children dropped by our coloring station to paint pictures of monkeys. And residents used our print-out map to tell us about their favorite spots in Alhambra.  

We also had a photographer roaming the festival to capture some of the colorful sights. Of course, this only accounts for a fraction of all the exciting things that happened, but we managed to capture a few curious images and a video…
