As motorists take to the roads for the Memorial Day holiday, Redlands police are urging everyone to buckle up.   Redlands Police will be lending their support to the 2013 national Click It or Ticket seat belt law campaign and looking for motorists who are not belted.

“As we kick-off  the busy summer driving season it’s important that everyone buckles up every time they go out, both day and night – no excuses,” said Redlands Police Traffic Sgt. Jeremy Floyd. “Our officers are prepared to ticket anyone who is not wearing their seat belt – Click It or Ticket.

Redlands Police are investigating a series of incidents in which teenage or younger females have been followed on their way to or from school. In most of the incidents the driver of the vehicle attempts to engage the girls in conversation. In one incident a 17-year-old high school student got into a car with the suspect before being dropped off a few minutes later.

The most recent incident occurred Monday, May 6, shortly before 9 a.m. when a teenage girl was approached as she walked to Redlands High School in the area of Church Street. A silver or white Mercedes Benz with tinted lens covers over the head lights and brake lights passed her several times before pulling into a parking lot near Church Street and Central Avenue and attempted to engage the girl in conversation and tried to get her in to his vehicle.

Police arrested a 34-year-old Yucaipa man for theft of copper wire from City light posts early Wednesday morning, the first success for the department’s newly created Community Response Unit.

Stanley Ray Tankersley was arrested shortly after 4 a.m. Wednesday, May 1, after police stopped him near the intersection of Colton Avenue and Orange Street for code violations and driving erratically. When they made contact with Tankersley, officers discovered gloves, tools and four coils of 8-guage wire in his 1994 Chevrolet Impala. 

After investigation and interviews with Tankersley, officers determined he had recently stolen the wire from City light posts in the area of Crown Street, and Highland and Cedar avenues.

The Redlands Police Department’s Multiple Enforcement Team, along with agents from the California Department of Justice Bureau of Firearms, conducted an operation last week, contacting individuals listed in the state Armed Prohibited Persons System database, confiscating firearms from those legally prohibited from possessing them.

The state database lists people who previously purchased guns but have since become ineligible to possess them because of subsequent felony convictions, a history of domestic violence or severe mental illness or wanted persons.

RPD officers and state agents contacted 11 people throughout the City and confiscated 13 firearms. In addition, officers confiscated concealed weapons permits previously issued in California and Arizona.

The City of Redlands Recreation Division will host a Youth Summer Basketball league, offered by TriFytt Sports at the Redlands Community Center, 111 W. Lugonia Ave.  Players draft day will be held Saturday, June 22, at 3 p.m. for ages 4-10 and 4:30 p.m. for ages 11-14.

This year Trifytt is proud to present a City Championship. Top teams of Redlands will play a Championship game against top teams of Yucaipa at the end of the season.  Children ages 4 -14 are invited to participate in this program to learn the basic and intermediate skills of basketball.  Each participant will walk away with a strong understanding of the sport. Students will be given tips and drills to further athletic growth and development. Coaches will also help kids work on sportsmanship and teamwork to further personal character development.

The City of Redlands broke ground Tuesday on the first segments of the 2013 PARIS Resurfacing Project (segments 1-34), the first of a number of projects that will ultimately result in resurfacing and rehabilitation of some two-thirds of the City’s streets over the next five years.

 

The $595,562 project, awarded to Silvia Construction, was approved by the City Council on Feb. 20, 2013, and will include resurfacing of 7.6 lane miles of streets, including portions of Alta, Herald and Tribune between Colton and Lugonia avenues; Courier Street; Edwards Street; portions of Oxford Street; Occidental from Colton Avenue to Brockton; Cornell and Central between University and Grove; Cook Street from Citrus Avenue to East Park Avenue; Central from Citrus Avenue to Church Street; and

Cero Court.

The work will begin April 29 and is expected to be completed by the end of May.

On Tuesday, April 23, the City Council, along with City staff, broke ground on the project in a ceremony held at the corner of Tribune Street and Lugonia Avenue. Representatives from Assemblyman Mike Morrell’s Office, the Redlands Chamber of Commerce and the North Redlands Visioning Committee were also on hand to show their support of the project.

Thousands of volunteers will be on hand this weekend, celebrating the 125th Anniversary of the City of Redlands by creating a park in just four hours!

The City of Redlands, Redlands Service Club Council and Mormon Helping Hands have partnered to bring the 25-year-old dream of Heritage Park to fruition during a single Community Service Day.

In 1988, the City of Redlands purchased the property for Heritage Park following the City’s Centennial Celebration. Since then the park property, which sits north of Barton Road, bounded by Nevada and Iowa Streets and Orange Avenue, has been largely untouched.

When the City began plans for its quasquicentennial celebration, marking 125 years since incorporation, the City, the Service Club Council and Mormon Helping Hands determined now was the time to make dreams of the park a reality.

Police are seeking the public’s help in identifying a man who twice followed an 11-year-old girl on her way to and from a school bus stop last week.

The man, driving a vehicle described as a newer model, small, black SUV with tinted rear passenger windows, followed the girl as she walked from and to a bus stop in the area of Sun and Columbia streets Thursday afternoon and Friday morning, April 18 and 19.

During the second incident, the man began asking the girl various questions about her school and her clothing.

The man is described as a Hispanic male in his late 20s to mid 30s, with black hair, brown eyes, dark eyebrows, a mustache and yellow teeth. He spoke English with no accent.

Firefighters from Redlands and San Bernardino County Fire Departments responded to a structure fire in an apartment building in the 300 block of La Paloma Street Sunday afternoon.

Initial reports of the 2:38 p.m. blaze on April 21 indicated a woman may have been trapped in the upstairs apartment that was on fire. The woman was in the shower when a smoke detector alerted her to the fire and gave her the extra seconds needed to make a safe exit from the burning apartment. The front door was blocked by flames, but the resident was able to escape without injury using a second exit.

The Redlands Police Department Traffic Unit will conduct a targeted “saturation” traffic patrol and additional traffic enforcement Saturday night and Monday, using funds from a state Office of Traffic Safety grant to pay overtime for additional officers.

Traffic officers will be watching for unsafe driving practices, including speeding, failure to stop at stop signs and red lights, texting or talking on a cell phone while driving, driving under the influence, unsafe turns and lane changes, and failure to wear a seatbelt or properly restrain children in appropriate safety seats.

Friday, August 8th

  1. Guan Fei art exhibition
    • Start time: 01:00pm
    • End date: Friday, August 8th
    • End time: 05:00pm
    • The A. K. Smiley Public Library, in cooperation with the California Center for Culture and Arts, will host a three-day exhibition of paintings by renowned artist Guan Fei from 1 to 5 p.m. Aug. 8-10.

      Born in Qingdao, China, Guan Fei began his artistic studies at the School of Arts and Crafts in Qingdao. In 2011, Guan graduated from the prestigious Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing, China.

      Although he has had several exhibitions in China, this will be his first in the United States. In 2013, Guan spent several months in Redlands, developing a deep admiration for the community. During his visit he was inspired to paint a beautiful new series of landscapes and building portraits entitled Redlands: Southern California's Village of Orange Groves. Twenty of these works will be featured at the Smiley Library’s exhibit.

      Through a translator Guan stated that the exhibit is an expression of the love he has developed for Redlands. “The theme of the exhibit is ‘Smile and Embrace.’ The name Smiley is so similar to smile, and the community has embraced me and I desire to return that affection.”

      "Guan Fei’s passion for our town is readily apparent in his work," commented Library Director Don McCue. "I'm certain our patrons will enjoy his depictions of some of Redlands’ landmark buildings and impressive landscapes".

      The A.K. Smiley Public Library is located at 125 W. Vine St. in Redlands. For further information please consult the library's website www.akspl.org or call 909-798-7565.
