Greater Faith Bible Church, Sic Psycles partner for Thanksgiving dinner giveaway

On Sunday, November 17 Greater Faith Bible Church in Rialto and members of the Sic Psycles Empire Chapter Motorcycle Club came together in a joint effort to provide about 50 families with all the turkeys and fixings for Thanksgiving dinners. Church Volunteer Erly Patterson said the small church of about 140 members reach out daily to people in need providing food for a full belly as well as a heart full of spiritual wellness.  One day she saw the motorcycle group in Rialto handing out school backpacks and decided to stop and see what they were all about.  She was thrilled to find that the group existed solely for the purpose of helping others.  “That day,” said Patterson, “they were passing out school supplies, backpacks, shoes, baby formula and diapers.  They told me how they helped raise money for different causes and had even helped repaint a classroom.  I realized they were in unity with us and what we were trying to do for others with their needs.” Sic Psycles Club President Allen “Kozy” Kozakobsky shared that the club had been established 11 years ago…

Simplify Back-to-School dinners with nutritious meal plans

(Family Features) Back-to-school season can be cluttered between after-school activities, week­end sports and evening homework – as well as making dinner each night. Creating a master meal plan with quick, simple and nutritious meals is an easy way to take control of your family’s hectic schedule. Start by stocking the pantry with staple ingredients that amp up the nutrition and flavor of your family favorites. For example, American Pecans are a nutri­tious ingredient to have on-hand – among the highest in “good” monounsaturated fats and packed with plant protein, fiber and essential minerals – and “The Original Supernut” is versatile enough for breakfast, lunchboxes, dinners and on-the-go snacking. Adding one bag to your weekly grocery list provides a canvas for exploring new dishes that are both nutritious and delicious. In fact, according to the Food and Drug Administration, scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1 1/2 ounces per day of most nuts, such as pecans, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease. One serving (28 grams) of pecans contains 18 grams…

A Community Benefits Agreement at Eastgate is the start of changing the way we do business

Guest Op-Ed by DeJonae Shaw, nurse and union member There’s another heatwave season in Southern California that’s making our air unbreathable. According to state monitoring data, we’ve already violated federal ozone standards for 32 days straight this summer. You might have noticed this when your chest began to hurt during that mile walk to the store, during that morning jog, or during your midnight shift inside an Amazon warehouse. Ground level ozone–an air pollutant that comes from dirty emissions like gas and diesel–is making a giant comeback because of the massive logistics developments taking place in our region. These structures attract thousands of trucks daily and are being built extremely close to sensitive receptors: our homes and schools.  San Bernardino International Airport’s Eastgate Logistics Center will add to that burden by bringing in 27 cargo flights a day–currently there are only five cargo flights a week. As a Licensed Vocational Nurse in the Inland Empire, I have experienced seeing the negative impacts bad smog and air quality are having on our future. It’s a physical and emotional pain that can be avoidable if we take swift action…
