On the Evening of Thursday June 27th 19, an Officer of SRPD was called to an active shooter incident in Bel Air Blvd. The Officer arrived on scene, to find a youth aged approximately 18 years of age had seemingly entered a persons house without permission and had shot at a woman who was trying to get him to leave.
The Officer ordered everyone on scene to put there guns down. Neither the youth nor another man on scene complied. The youth then trained his gun on the Officer as she approached from outside, but after the Officer was warned he then fired more shots at the woman.
The Officer repeatedly asked for everyone to put there guns down, the Youth continued to not comply. The SRPD Officer then fired on the youth at the same time as he turned his guns on himself. The Officer had requested backup and EMTS who arrived and were cleared to enter the scene once it was safe to do so.
The woman was taken to SRGH with Gun shot wounds and the Youth was pronounced dead on arri...
In Ancient Rome, the Legatus, an equivalent of a High Ranking General would ride into Rome after Great Victory. Moments like these are where the word 'Triumph' came from. Today, marks a Triumph for Santa Ramona. The sun has set, and risen on a new day. A day where all voices of Santa Ramona can come to be heard. Today like many days has been a moment of great reflection for me. And I honestly never thought in my life that I would be sitting here, writing this address to you. But, I can promise you that I will be open. My office is always open to you. I only ask that if you have a concern, you will bring it to me so that we can resolve it.
I thank you all for this opportunity to serve you. I may not be the most well spoken. I may not be your first choice, but allow me to start by saying I have been and always will be here for you, the Citizens of this Great City of Santa Ramona.
In the first in of a series of interviews that follows local talent, up and coming Indie-punk, blues infused rock band The Ashes, The Chronicles had a chance to sit down and talk to the band members about their music, their influences, favorite songs---and even their least favorite gig...!
[The band: Asher Santa, lead guitar, Serina Del Nero on bass and Joanne Steel on drums]
Chronicles: How did you all meet?
Asher: "I own the record store in town Asher's Music Serina came in a few times and i ended up hiring her as a clerk and Joanne came in a few times as a customer and we all just sort of clicked.."
Serina: "..i was poor and in the need for a job as any Italian backpacker worth the definition. I've been lucky enought to search for a copy of Bloody Kisses from Type O'Negative and stopped to chat with Ash for a long time. We had a lot of music in common and in the end he proposed a job. While i was tending as a clerk i saw them playing together and offered to help having been a '...
With the elections approaching the candidates are trying to do their best to reach the potential voters to join their side.
The first man to show up with a public rally has been candidate Ramirez, who choose a central public park in front of city all to hold his rally in the familiar atmosphere with desserts and catering offered by Allie Brentt, mother of four and manager at creamy center.
A number of picnic table laid around Ramirez did his best to welcome and greet the people gathering for the event with his wife Sarina Jade Ramirez close by to support quietly trying to not steal the scene from her husband.
Ramirez held a speech to inaugurate officially the campaign, here his words:
"Ladies and Gentlemen, I want to first and foremost welcome and thank everyone for coming out tonight, I thank you for your willingness to join me in coming together, so that we can all be on the same page. But first and foremost, I want to give a shoutout to Allie Brentt of Creamy Centers Cafe for catering f...
"Can I swear? It was fucking strange, like I have no idea of the woman in the glass box or why we were supposed to pander to her, I mean I did for a laugh, there were tranquilized black leopards in there I had to see if they were real."
A source whose identity we cannot reveal for legal reasons and fear of repercussions, spoke to the Chronicles about their night at the Reel restaurant which has been the hot topic for conversation ever since the Reel's party event-allegedly occult themed- wound up with two stabbings and three people in total injured.
".. pretty much the event was upstairs and some of the room was sectioned off so there was kind of just one room with this glass box in the middle." The source disclosed.
Later on they went on to share that in the party bags given to guests, "..In the free stuff was a puzzle, about kissing the midnight queen and then when we went upstairs there she was in a glass cage with two black leopards tranqued up to the eyeballs, probably Cat-amine or...
"It has come to my knowledge that there allegations against me which have been brought up at a time when I'm runnin' for Mayor of Santa Ramona, the incident which these allegations is tied to took place a whole year earlier in the past.
It appears to me that there is a candidate for Mayor who is trying their best to boost themselves through dirty tactics and try to win a campaign without any platform to speak of. They also involving agitators to stir up trouble at other candidates rallies. It looks like they need to rely on damaging their opponents in a poor attempt a getting ahead. Mr Ramirez was subjected to agitation first and then myself, at his own rally by a man who refused to introduce himself and ran off when challenged by myself on his claims.
I am now going to meet with the injured party of the incident and their lawyer and be recorded and interviewed at the SRPD of my own will.
I initiated contact and requested to meet the PD member to clear the air so to speak. I was...
