Fighting the Boob Toob Blues

There are so many events this weekend that next week will get its own post. If dogs, roller skating, or trains are your fancy, the Fairplex has something to offer. On Saturday night the homes around Palomares Community Center will shake with the thunderous sounds of the Pomona Concert Band. If you're into baseball and folksongs, the library could be your stop on Saturday. If National Train Day warms your caboose, activities will be running all day at the Los Angeles Union Station or just stop by the historic trains at the Fairplex for the Pomona-based experience. It's also the hopping time of the month again down in Metro Pomona. Experience the uniquely urban vibe in our sea of suburbia by strolling the sidewalks during the Second Saturday Art Walk.

The Pomona Beautification Day deserved its own paragraph. From 8-12 volunteers will be putting a shine on the Goddess's face and after sweating away some pounds, the Fairplex will open its doors to the volunteers as a thank you. If you find yourself at the Fairplex, consider taking in the dog show or historic train display.

Gee Goddess, you're getting a shine on your face. Hope that's a shimmering shine and not a shiner.

Another event going on, although not in Pomona, is the Town Hall Meeting at Dolce Cafe and Bakery on Central Ave. in Montclair. It caught our interest because Ken White will be there. He is an interesting candidate for the State Assembly. Might be a good time to go and ask some questions. Hank and I met Ken last week at the Farmer's Market on Garey and liked what we heard him say. Also has a website,

Kate and Hank Valdez

Kate, the Town Hall meeting has been added. If anyone nows about speaking engagements with the other candidates, just leave a note.

John, now that was funny!!
