SGV News at Risk

Whether you like the SGVN papers or not, it's always sad to see the continued decline of newspapers, and Dean Singleton, owner of the SGVN, is facing bankruptcy.

Ron Kaye at the LA Progressive writes about this.

The demand for news hasn't declined, but ad revenues have. The problem we're facing is paying the writers and researchers to produce the news. Contrary to what "crowdsourcers" say, it takes a lot of work to be a professional journalist. This has to be figured out.

Glory Days?

This is a follow-up to this story, about the firing of the San Gabriel High School Girls baskeball coaching staff.

Meanwhile, mysterious news out of San Gabriel

Entire Girls basketball coaching staff fired

Why would you fire everyone after an "event" involving the JV? In the college ranks, they might talk about a "loss of institutional control." At the high school level? I don't know.

Construction on San Gabriel Blvd

Last Christmas season, they paved San Gabriel from Broadway to Las Tunas. This year, it's Broadway to Mission. At this rate, it'll be two more years before they make it to the San Bernardino Freeway.

La Laguna update

Well, now that there's a "San Gabriel" category, I suppose this can go there.

Can't remember if this news has appeared here before. Looks like the effort to save "La Laguna" is won.

Added San Gabriel News Category

I added a new category called "San Gabriel News" and re-tagged some of the old stories into there.

Right now, our search engine rankings for articles are in the first 3 pages, and we're often one of the first blogs to turn up (as opposed to advertising or campaign sites). So, that's good news. We're pretty close to touching "" despite being a tiny website.
