This morning, July 9th, the Rudy C. Hernandez Community Center buzzed with excitement as a new mural, entitled “Welcome to San Bernardino,” was unveiled in a ceremony that brought together local artists, community leaders, and residents. The vibrant mural, created by San Bernardino Native Christian Mariscal, is a significant addition to the San Bernardino Beautification and Cultural Infusion Project, funded by a Creative Corps Inland SoCal grant from the Inland Empire Community Foundation in partnership with the California Arts Council. The ceremony, which began at 10:00 a.m., marked a celebration of the city’s rich cultural tapestry.

San Bernardino County Museum Offers Free Admission to All Historic Sites

The San Bernardino County Museum is elated to share that they are offering free admission to their historic sites including Agua Mansa Pioneer Cemetery, María Merced Williams and John Rains House, and Oro Grande Cemetery. “By offering free admission to our historic sites, we hope to attract new visitors and provide access to these historically significant sites to our entire community,” shared Museum Director David Myers. The Agua Mansa Pioneer Cemetery is all that remains of the communities of Agua Mansa and La Placita. Situated across from each other along the Santa Ana River, they were the first non-native settlements in the San Bernardino Valley and the largest settlements between New Mexico and Los Angeles during the 1840s. The cemetery is located at 2001 Agua Mansa Road in Colton and is open Sundays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Donations are welcome. The María Merced Williams and John Rains House, built in 1860, has a history as colorful as the property’s gardens. Namesakes Rains and Merced, granddaughter of the prominent landowner Don Antonio Maria Lugo, built the home to withstand the hot inland

San Bernardino City Council Faces Tough Decisions as 2024/2025 Budget Exceeds Revenue, Animal Services Scrutinized

For the first time in nearly five years, the City of San Bernardino’s proposed budget for the fiscal year 2024/2025 projects higher expenditures than revenues, leading to intense debate among city council members during the June 26th special meeting. Councilman Theodore Sanchez highlighted the fiscal discrepancy, stating, “We have $236.6 million in revenues and the proposed budget is $237.7 million. This is the first time in at least five years that we are projected to spend more than we are projected to make in revenues from all sources. This city unfortunately has one of the most dubious reputations for being one of the largest cities to go through bankruptcy. I want to make sure that the decisions we make here are fiscally sound.” Sanchez pointed out the impact of adding nearly 150 positions over the last 16 months, noting, “What that does is it expands the bandwidth of the work at city hall but it cuts into capital improvement projects; such as streets getting repaved, bridges getting built, and parks getting cleaned up.” He proposed cuts to previously approved positions, including an additional administrative assistant
