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.

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.

    GREAT WORK BY APD! I live few houses away from the crime scene; this is a nice quiet neighborhood (Historical Emery Park)was home that afternoon – ADP RESPONDED VERY FAST! GREAT! police canvased the neighborhood asking for witness accounts – I hope this was a one-time crime and not to expect more like situations. The neighbors are scared, now not knowing what else to expect. Since Councilman Ayala lives in the area, I hope he takes enough interest to call for a meeting with the APD and Emery Park neighbors to keep us informed regarding this issue.
