Roy Montry

(Best Syndication) On October 4th 2007 San Bernardino Public Works Operations Supervisor, Roy Montry, spoke at the Pinon Hills Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) meeting (See Video of the Meeting Below). He talked about the road projects in Pinon Hills and the Phelan Areas.

Montry said that Lebec Road got paved using grindings from work done on Phelan Road. The road work on Phelan Road included some drainage and ditch work along the side. The work was almost completed to Beekley. Montry says that they will complete the road work up to Highway 138 eventually. The county is presently surveying the area.

The next portion of the road project between Beekley and Highway 138 will start after January 1st 2008. Sadly, there are no plans for a bridge at the wash portion of Phelan Road, according to Montry. “There are no plans for any kind of bridge at all”, he said. “They do need to work on drainage coming between 138 and Phelan Roads, but that is all private property. So we are kind-of limited to what can be done.”

Route 66 Museum In Victorville California and Interview With Bruce Davis

Route 66 Museum

(Best Syndication) On Saturday September 29th 2007 we traveled to the Victorville Route 66 Museum on D Street in Victorville (see videos below). The museum is on the old highway which runs down D street and then up 7th street through the Cajon Pass and down the hill to the San Bernardino and Los Angeles basins.

The Mother Road, as it is sometimes referred to, ran from Chicago Illinois through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. The end of this “Main Street of America” was initially Los Angeles, but later a leg was added to Santa Monica California which is on the Pacific Ocean.

Daily, the California Highway Patrol office receives numerous inquiries about the CALIFORNIA CROSSWALK LAW (CCL). To assist with the dissemination of the CCL, the following information was compiled from the San Bernardino County District Attorney's office, reviewed and edited by Mark Vos, lead Deputy District Attorney, Appellate Services Unit:

Drive, or don't drive; this topic aims to reconcile divided opinions on how to properly enforce California crosswalk law. Although pedestrian safety is of paramount importance, pedestrians in crosswalks do not have an unlimited right-of-way, but only a qualified one. For example, motorists need not wait for pedestrians to finish crossing before they pass through a crosswalk, if drivers do so at a reasonably safe distance from the pedestrians at a reasonably safe speed. Moreover, pedestrians must be mindful of their own duties toward motorists. Practically, enforcement of crosswalk law depends upon officers' sound judgment and expertise.

(Best Syndication) SAN BERNARDINO - The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors today approved a proposal by First District Supervisor Brad Mitzelfelt to fund a Sheriff's sex-offender tracking team. Mitzelfelt's plan, co-sponsored by Sheriff Gary Penrod, provides supplemental Sheriff's staff to support multi-agency efforts to locate, monitor, and investigate sex offenders in San Bernardino County.

"Now that the State of California has begun enforcing Jessica's Law, putting thousands of sex offenders on the move, we need to ensure that we are prepared to keep track of the increased number of sex offenders who may come our way," said Supervisor Mitzelfelt. "I'm especially concerned that we may see more sex offenders in our rural areas, where it's perceived to be easier to find housing outside of restricted areas."
