A number of jurors failed to show up for the trial of former mayoral candidate Manny Moore this week. He elected to be tried by the judge.
Manny Moore chose to be tried by the judge so as not to have to turn up for his trial a third time. His first trial was halted because Moore’s counsel objected to the judge, as she was married to the arresting officer. The judge, Eve Stone, ruled this was a valid objection and the trial was rescheduled.
Moore was charged with possession of an unregistered firearm in public, It was alleged that the gun’s serial number was scratched off, also making the weapon illegal.
Moore refused a plea deal from the prosecution and pleaded not guilty. He was found guilty and sentenced to a $1000 fine and five hours in prison.
Manny Moore has recently opened a bank in Santa Ramona, the Valley Moore Bank. It is not known what the reaction the Division of Financial Institutions, the part of the California Department of Business Oversight that regulates banks in t...
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.
