Kudos to Hector Becerra

Hector Becerra of the L.A. Times has had a couple of good San Gabriel Valley-related stories recently. Earlier in the week, it was about the trials and tribulations of being in the pho (Vietnamese noodle) business in the area.

Today, on their website was a story about the general difficulties going on in El Monte.

Interesting thing about the latter story is how it contrasts them with Rosemead, and with Rosemead being put in a more positive light. Of course, depending on the future policies adopted by the city council in the next few years, we'll either maintain that perceived edge or fall behind them.

sad story

That story about the police officer who got his job cut was sad.
