Pomona Mayor Tim Sandoval packs up cleaning supplies in a trash-filled truck at the 12th annual Pomona Beautification Day Saturday. Hundreds of residents and volunteers from the community worked together at 33 project sites from 8 a.m. to noon. Volunteers picked up trash, planted trees, helped start community gardens and created what is soon to be Pomona’s first wilderness trail.
Firefighters work to contain a gas leak that caused an emergency evacuation of the Oaks dorms, Barkley Building, Leo Hall and the Arts and Communication building Monday afternoon. The gas line was hit during construction on a fire hydrant on the north side of Oaks A building. Students were asked to stay out of their dorms for three hours and cars in the surrounding parking lots were also inaccessible as starting the ignition could trigger an explosion.
