Unhealthy air quality continues due to smoke from fire in San Fernando Valley

Unhealthy air quality continues due to smoke from fire in San Fernando Valley #malibu
Smoke and ash from the Saddleridge Fire in the San Fernando Valley carried by the wind has resulted in continuing unhealthy air quality for Malibu. The Los Angeles County Public Health Dept. advises that all people should take extra precautions to avoid health effects.

Sensitive individuals, including seniors, young children, and those with heart or lung conditions, may experience more serious health effects and should take extra precautions. Precautions include avoiding unnecessary outdoor exposure and limiting physical exertion (whether indoor or outdoor), such as exercise. Children and people who have air quality sensitive conditions, such as heart disease, asthma, and other chronic respiratory diseases, should stay indoors as much as possible, even in areas where smoke, soot, or ash cannot be seen, or there is no smell of smoke. If your condition worsens, contact your health care provider immediately for medical advice or call 911.

Free respiratory masks are available in the Michael Landon Center at Malibu Bluffs Park (PCH and Malibu Canyon Rd), which is open 8:00 AM to sunset every day, and at the Malibu Library (23519 Civic Center Way), which is open 9:00AM to 5:00 PM on Saturday and 1:00 to 5:00 PM on Sunday.

City of Fontana Police Department receives Traffic Safety Grant

Fontana Police Department Awarded Traffic Education and Enforcement Grant From the OTS
Fontana, California – Fontana Police Department received a $325,000 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) for a one-year enforcement and education program. The money will fund various activities intended to reduce deaths and injuries on California roads.

“The Fontana Police Department has a long-standing and strong relationship with the California Office of Traffic Safety. We look forward to continuing our work together in the upcoming year, combatting traffic safety issues and thereby saving lives. Our organization takes the safety of its residents and the motoring public seriously and will work throughout the year to ensure the streets of Fontana are safe,” said Chief William Green.

The grant-related activities are for the 2020 federal fiscal year, which runs from Oct. 1, 2019 to Sept. 30, 2020.

The funding from the OTS will be used for numerous programs, including:
  • DUI/driver’s license checkpoints.
  • Patrols specifically looking for suspected alcohol and/or drug-impaired drivers.
  • Patrols targeting violations of California’s hands-free cell phone law and vehicle code violations by drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians that put other roadway users at risk.
  • Patrols targeting the primary causes of crashes: Speeding, improper turns, running stop signs or signals, right-of-way violations and driving on the wrong side of the road.
  • Patrols specifically looking for seat belt and child safety seat violations.
  • Traffic safety education presentations for youth and community members on distracted and impaired driving, bicycle and pedestrian safety.
  • Creating “Hot Sheets” identifying repeat DUI offenders.
  • Officer training to identify suspected impaired drivers and conduct sobriety tests.
“Getting in a vehicle remains one of the most dangerous things we do,” OTS director Barbara Rooney said. “We must continue to work with our partners in law enforcement to shift that realization and make traveling on our roads safer.”

Funding for this program was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Alert - Very unhealthy air quality in Malibu due to smoke from Socal fires. No current fire threat to Malibu. Free respiratory masks at City Hall & Bluffs Park.

LA County Public Health Dept reports very unhealthy air quality levels in NW Coastal area due to smoke from fires in our region. There is no current fire threat to Malibu. Free respiratory masks are available at City Hall and Bluffs Park.

Evil Dead The Musical

FOLSOM, CALIFORNIA (September 27, 2019)

By George Reinblatt
Directed by Sidney Raey-Gonzales & Taylor Fleer
Musical Direction by Sidney Raey-Gonzales
Choreography by Taylor Fleer

Evil Dead The Musical takes all the elements of the cult classic films, The Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness and combines them for one of the craziest, funniest, and bloodiest theatrical experiences of all time.  Five college students go to an abandoned cabin in the woods, and accidentally unleash an evil force that turns them all into demons. It’s all up to Ash (a housewares employee, turned demon-killing hero), and his trusty chainsaw to save the day. Blood flies. Limbs are dismembered. Demons tell bad jokes… and all to music. 

You don’t need to be a fan of Evil Dead to love this show. You don’t need to be a fan of horror to love this show. You don’t even need to be a fan of musicals to love this show. As long as you like having fun… this show is for you.  Plus, it’s the only show with a “Splatter Zone” – a section of the audience that gets covered in fake blood.  And with this combination of blood, jokes, cheesy effects, and really awesome musical numbers, Evil Dead The Musical is unlike any live show you’ve ever seen.  “JOIN US!!!!!”

For mature audiences only.

Evil Dead The Musical plays October 5 - November 2, 2019 on Fri. & Sat. at 8:00pm, Sun. at 7:00pm plus Oct. 30 & 31 at 7:00pm

Tickets are: Splatter Zone Only $26, General $24, Seniors $21, Students with ID $18, Children 12 and under $15.  For online reservations go to or call (916) 353-1001.
