Where could you find Supergirl, Cat Woman, Poison Ivy, Iron Man, Captain America, a Sith and at least two Jokers all together?

Well my dears, not in a comic book, since they are a mixture of creations by different publishers.
 

The correct answer is in the Boiler Room in Santa Ramona Valley. They were all to be found at the Second Annual Comic Con held there this Sunday.
 

Santa Ramona residents all dressed up as their favorite characters and danced the night away surrounded by statues of other characters like Yoda and Black Panther. Not to forget one dancer who, in an open challenge to the creative artists of DC and Marvel, came dressed as her Dungeons & Dragons character.
 

Music was provided, as it often is in the Boiler Room by the ever-popular DJ Kittara,
 

The $500 prize for best costume was deservedly won by Tawny Miller as Poison Ivy. So congratulations to Tawny with her most elegant get-up.

And congratulations to Joseph Styles, aka Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, and his team at the B...

This is the second in our occasional series publishing opinions of the residents of Santa Ramona Valley. We welcome responses and will publish the best ones.   We welcome responses and will publish the best ones. We also welcome opinion articles on other topics. Articles published under the heading of 'Opinion' do not necessarily represent the views and opinion of the Chronicles.

In the city of Santa Ramona, there are very few surveillance cameras, yet in other urban areas, surveillance cameras are more prolific. According to Urbanwire.com “Public surveillance camera systems can be a cost-effective way to deter, document, and reduce crime.”

Yet SRV does not utilize this cost-effective crime deterrent.  Why? There is no compelling reason why every street, business and public building in SRV shouldn’t have some form of video surveillance. Given the amount of crime that occurs in SRV, it's inconceivable that we don't have more surveillance cameras in our city. Criminal threats, assault...

On July 12th we ran our first opinion piece in the Chronicles. Written by Isabella Carter, it argued that prostitution should be legalized in Santa Ramona Valley. We asked for people to submit their own opinions.

We have published a number of replies. Today we publish the first reply submitted by a woman.We welcome responses, from both men and women, to the original article or to the responses.

From Ianna Snow:

While reading the article discussing prostitution in Santa Ramona, and the responses, I am drawn to an interesting conclusion.

Men want it, but don't want it to be overt.

What's that mean?  If you keep it criminal, there are no records, no documentation.  The rich and powerful can just go down to the local street corner and pick up a girl and do the business out of sight. Out of sight of their families, out of sight of the public. And if they are of a known stature, out of sight of those they claim to govern, protect, represent.  It gives them a out. 

But, what does...

It’s the Second Annual Comic Con event at Santa Ramona’s Boiler Room this Sunday, July 26th from 3 – 6 p.m. It’s like Halloween in July were our residents and guests dress as their favorite comic book hero or villain. You don’t need to be in costume to join in the fun, but it might pay you to dress it up. Your host, Joseph Styles is giving a $500 prize for the best costume. Check your inventory for that Joker outfit you bought five years ago and join the fun.

When asked about the first Comic Con event and how things went Joseph was quick to respond "Yes, the first one was a big success. Doing the event in the middle of the blockbuster movie season and the San Diego Comic Con usually has people embracing those characters. And yes, we do encourage patrons to come down Sunday dressed like their favorites. That is half the fun of the event, seeing who people come as."

As to the music, “Kittara is well known here in Santa Ramona. She has been my DJ for almost every monthly event we have h...

On July 12th we ran our first opinion piece in the Chronicles. Written by Isabella Carter, it argued that prostitution should be legalized in Santa Ramona Valley. We asked for people to submit their own opinions.

Yesterday we published a reply by Under Sheriff Azariah Brentt, written in a personal capacity. Today we publish two further replies. We welcome responses both to the original article and to the responses.

From Slim Hutchinson:

While Ms Carter may have her heart in the right place, she should look deeper into the possible results of the action. Would she be fine with Mrs. Wilson on the corner setting up a lemonade stand only instead of lemonade for a quarter, she gives head behind a curtain for ten bucks every Saturday afternoon to earn a few extra dollars? Or maybe the cheerleading squad could sell sex instead of holding a carwash to raise money for new uniforms. The outrage would be more than a moral issue. But remember, Mrs. Wilson and the cheerleaders are providing a communit...

On July 12th we ran our first opinion piece in the Chronicles. Written by Isabella Carter, it argued that prostitution should be legalized in Santa Ramona Valley. We asked for people to submit their own opinions.

This reply is by Under Sheriff Azariah Brentt of the Santa Ramona Sheriff’s Department. It is, as he makes clear, his own personal opinion and not that of the SRSD.

 

I am not one to usually speak my mind on most subjects. However, as I have already been quoted in this, out of context I might add. I feel the need to consolidate the reason behind my views. Before I begin I want to make it VERY clear this is my personal stand, not the view of the law or the Sheriff's Department.

My words as reported were, "Sex is something that should be shared intimately between people who are bonded together not sold like a commodity." Well, let's break that down, shall we? “Sex is something that should be shared intimately between people who are bonded together...” Bonded means tied to someone,...

There was chaos in Wolfe’s Tavern last night as the Sheriff’s Department seized and arrested Dr Gunther Roberts, developer of Charge Soda.. This follows the exposure by SRV7 News and the Santa Ramona Chronicles of the subliminal messages in his adverts.

Armed with a warrant for Dr Roberts’ arrest, Deputies went to both his work and home addresses, eventually tracking him down to Wolfe’s Tavern, where a Ladies Night was in progress.

Sheriff Sarina Jade Ramirez, accompanied by Under Sheriff Brentt, entered the Tavern and attempted to arrest him. Dr Roberts responded by using a phone with a flashing light to put Wolfe’s owner, who was serving behind the bar, into a trance and ordered her to “shoot them all”.

It was at this point that panic seized the crowd, who tried to get away. Under Sheriff Brentt pulled out his pistol as the Tavern owner reached under the bar. Fortunately, in her semi-conscious state, she pulled out the soda gun and fired soda at the nearest man.

The man’s wife lu...
