Rosemead City Council Candidates Forum

On Tuesday, February 15, from 7pm - 9pm, the candidates for Rosemead City Council will participate in a forum at Rosemead City Hall. The proceedings will be webcast live.

Rosemead Hit and Run Fatality

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports that, at around 10:40pm on Monday night, a silver or white van was involved in a fatal hit and run in the 3800 block of Walnut Grove Avenue. The 3800 block would be about a block north of Marshall.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Temple Sheriff's station at 626-285-7171.

San Gabriel High School E-waste Drive

It's not until February 26 and 27, 9am - 3pm, so you've got plenty of time to collect your stuff.

If you've got it, bring it, and they'll let you know if they can take it.
