 The Mayor surveys the litter

If you were in Southside at lunchtime on Tuesday, you would have seen groups of people walking around picking up litter and waste.

They were members of Mayor Roisin Russo’s volunteer force to clean up Southside. She promised this during the election and this was their first outing.

Around a dozen people, including Under Sheriff Brentt and two deputies, gathered for the clean-up. After a delay, they broke up into groups and, armed with trash bags, proceeded to get to work.

Waste paper and cigarette ends were put into bags. Larger items, such as abandoned furniture and, believe it or not, a toilet bowl, were moved to specific places for garbage workers to pick up.

Mayor Russo thought the turnout was good, though conceded it largely consisted of her friends, though Under Sheriff Brentt said the turnout was smaller than he thought it would be. He added "I do think it will make a differenc...

In the city of Santa Ramona Valley there is a divide. It's talked about in coffee shops and laundromats. It's evident as you walk along Imperial Lane as the beach turns from pristine to dirty. This is the tale of two Police Departments.

There have been a lot of questions about the new Southside Police Department and the Sheriff's Department. Why do we have two law enforcement agencies? Were there problems with the Sheriff's Department? What exactly do they both do and are our tax payer dollars being wasted?

Jay Stone, Chief of Police of Southside PD has a small office, wedged into the corner, that is about as large as a broom closet. He proudly displays his professional certificates and Law Enforcement Credentials. He displays a painting on one wall and pictures of his family in frames on his desk.

Following the sale of the Virtuous Vice chain of stores to Conglomerate Clothing by Chiara Villanova, Santa Ramona’s premier fashionable clothing store may eventually close.

Chiara Villanova, Santa Ramona’s former Mayor, created the brand from her dorm room at Boston University, and it quickly became so successful that she s dropped out of school. In the ten years since, the brand has grown to a chain with locations in twelve states, including stores in Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Las Vegas.

But success is a double-edged sword. She ran the business full-time plus every single day of those ten years. Even when she was Mayor of Santa Ramona she would go home and make fabric choices or let the marketing department know which photo layout to run in which market.

She became burned out. As she put it, “it had turned from a passion into a prison”. Having just become a mother, she decided it was time for a change of pace.

Because the sales contract with Conglomerate prohibits Ms Villa...

The Sheriff’s Department hope that, as result of this campaign, they will make people aware of what constitutes rape and sexual assault, and be able to reach out to the victims. The phone number to call is 1-888-Sex-Stop.

The gut-churning trial of an alleged rapist and Satanic cult leader has suddenly become a city-wide manhunt. Theo Courvoisier hurled himself through the window of the Santa Ramona Courthouse Saturday after a power outage plunged his high-profile trial into darkness. The court had just heard disturbing allegations of the week-long nightmare of rape and violence that one of his alleged victims said she suffered at his hands.
