    One Small Christmas Gift Gives Hope To A Child at the Salvation Army Angel Tree

    Help the Salvation Army obtain more toys for children in need by going to the Giving Tree by Dec. 24.

    Help the Salvation Army obtain more toys for children in need by going to the Giving Tree by Dec. 24.

     

    (Redlands, Calif.)  Giving a toy to a needy child. It is a small gesture but participating in The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree will make this Christmas memorable for you as well as the children in need.  Without your help, some children won’t get anything for Christmas.

    “Just pick up an Angel Tree tag and buy a needy child the gift listed on the tag! The Angel Tree matches donors with hundreds of children who are relying on The Salvation Army this year to bring them a Merry Christmas,” said Major Martha Trimmer, Corps Officer of The Salvation Army of San Bernardino.

    The San Bernardino Corps Angel Tree is at Inland Center Mall in San Bernardino, 500 Inland Center Drive in San Bernardino, 92408.  Donations received here provide toys to children from 400 disadvantaged families in Big Bear, Blue Jay, Crestline, Lake Arrowhead, the mountain communities, Bloomington, Colton, Grand Terrace, Highland, Rialto, Loma Linda, Yucaipa, Mentone, Redlands, and San Bernardino.

    “Please support disadvantaged children with a Christmas gift at the Angel Tree by visiting our table in the Inland Center Mall and fulfilling the wishes of a child till December 22nd,” said Major Trimmer.

    Shoppers find cards attached to the Angel Tree. These cards include the names and wish lists of needy children whose families cannot afford to buy gifts. Shoppers simply pluck a tag off the Angel Tree and head for the appropriate store to purchase their gift donations, then return it to the Angel Tree volunteers.

    Shoppers get to keep the card as an ornament to hang on their own Christmas tree, reminding them of their good deed.

    “This is a great way to start a tradition with your family, by selecting a gift for a needy child together. The gifts are based on their individual wishes and for some children, it may be the only gift they receive all year,” said Major Trimmer.

    “Lego’s, board games and clothes are just a few items on each child’s wish list,” said Major Trimmer. “Shoppers who participate in the program are encouraged to shop for more than what is needed on the list. I can’t think of a better way for local people including business owners and managers to help the community and spread the spirit of Christmas.”

    For more information on the Angel Tree call Steven Pinckney at (909) 792-6868 or visit the tree in the Inland Center Mall in San Bernardino.   To donate money by phone call 1-800-SAL-ARMY (800-725-2769).  Donate online at: https://sanbernardino.salvationarmy.org

    Safety First for Students and Teachers


    by Sean Flynn
    Inland Empire residents know from painful experience that America faces an unacceptable level of gun violence. Whether at a workplace in San Bernardino a high school in Palmdale, or in Santa Fe, Texas, far more needs to be done to prevent these tragedies.

    As we discuss our options, I would like to point out that there are at least five common-sense solutions that can be enacted immediately to help safeguard students and schools from a repeat of the tragedy in Palmdale.  You have probably never heard of them because the political parties have gone to polar extremes and are more interested in finger pointing than proven solutions.

    Our fundamental problem is that students and schools have been left defenseless.  It wasn’t always like that. When I was growing up in the 1980s and attending junior high and high school in the gang-plagued Los Angeles Unified School District, we had metal detectors to stop students from bringing weapons (both knives and guns) onto campus.  It worked and metal detectors are something that we now as a society embrace at airports, concerts, and government buildings.

    We need to place metal detectors in schools once again. Nobody should be able to walk casually onto campus with a firearm and shoot children.

    Let’s also embrace more recent prevention technologies.  Consider the Salto electronic door locks that the Loma Linda Unified School District just installed at every one of its schools.

    Each principal in the district now has a mobile app that allows them to lock down their entire campus in just eight seconds if there’s an emergency.  Some might object to the $1.4 million cost, but this proven technology comes out to just 8 cents per student per day. That’s a bargain by any measure, especially so when considering how infinitely precious our children are.

    Another proven lifesaver is the ShotSpotter acoustical gunshot detection and location system, which uses ordinary microphones to detect and locate gunfire.  Within seconds, it can detect that firearms have been discharged, tell authorities the location to within 10 feet, and even tell them if there was more than one shooter.

    ShotSpotter is used by more than 90 cities around the world and is credited by the San Francisco Chief of Police with helping to reduce both gun crime and homicides by fifty percent over the past 10 years. We need ShotSpotter at every school in America and in the neighborhoods that surround them.

    Fences and metal detectors are the first line of defense.  ShotSpotter lets authorities know when something has gone wrong.  And Salto allows for instant lockdown.  But we must also have trained professionals on site at every school ready to engage and disable if a shooter manages to get past the fences and metal detectors.

    So I once again recommend proven solutions. The schools I attended back in the 1980s had armed police officers patrolling the halls and walking the perimeter. They were some of the nicest adults I ever met, but their purpose was simple and meaningful: If anyone tried to harm me, they would stop them…dead if necessary.

    Society, of course, also needs to seriously reconsider how it deals with the violently mentally ill and to have a serious talk about the best ways of restricting potential predators from gaining access to firearms.  Both of those debates will be heated, but both sides should consider a new type of restraining order that can deny firearms to potential shooters.

    It’s called a Gun Violence Restraining Order (GVRO) and it allows family members and others who are close to a disturbed individual to present real evidence—such as screen shots of social media posts or copies of diary entries—to a local judge who can then issue a 21-day restraining order that allows the police to temporarily deny weapons to the disturbed individual.

    California’s GVRO law went into effect in 2018, but California is one of just five states to allow for GVROs.  Other states should consider adopting GVROs and citizens should be made aware that GVROs are an important option for those living with potential predators.

    The best fence is the one that’s never breached, the best metal detector is the one that’s never set off, and the best Salto system is the one that’s never activated.  But until we can 100% deny weapons to the violently mentally ill, we need all of them, as well as ShotSpotters, school police, and GVROs.  They are proven, practical, cost effective and would make another Palmdale much less likely.  I hope we implement each of them as soon as possible.  Our children must be protected.

    Rancho Cucamonga, CALIF.- Economist, jobs expert, academic, and congressional candidate Sean Flynn had a busy week meeting with local small business owners during National Small Business Weekto learn about the needs of businesses in the area and how our government can serve them better.

    “California does not have a business-friendly environment, which is why it is so important for me to hear from small business owners who are working hard to run successful companies in San Bernardino County.  We are going to work together to find solutions to the problems that confront them daily,” said Flynn, candidate for the 31st Congressional District.

    “I recently met with San Bernardino County small business owners. We talked about their concerns about our current business environment, and the major issues that are impacting them,” said Flynn. “The same issues came up repeatedly: high healthcare costs, overregulation, tax reform, high workers compensation rates, and burdensome, confusing labor laws that add cost and hurt productivity.”

    Business leaders joining the discussion included: Denny Shorett owner of Crown Connect, a 40 year old printing company in San Bernardino, Fontana’s California Recyclersowner Cristina Valle-Parke, California Financial Plannersowner Rich Crean from San Bernardino, and Account Executive M’liss Silva with City News Group, which has six publications in the Inland Empire.
