Just over 150 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln made a speech at the dedication of the Soldiers’ National Cemetery, the final resting place for thousands of Union soldiers killed at the battle of Gettysburg. Lincoln’s “Gettysburg Address” has gone down in U.S. history, and to commemorate this pivotal moment the Lincoln Memorial Shrine in Redlands and Camp Carleton Cornet Band are hosting the second “Lincoln Shrine Band Tattoo” on Saturday, Nov. 22, from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Shrine.

“The sesquicentennial of the Civil War is an important commemoration for the United States, and last year’s success of the first Tattoo, even given the damp weather, demonstrated how exciting music is to experience,” commented Nathan Gonzales, Lincoln Shrine Curator. “It started because of our partnership with local musicians who reenact a Civil War band unit. Todd Humphrey, of the Camp Carleton Cornet Band suggested a military ‘tattoo,’ a special type of military musical program which dates back to the 1600s in Europe and was popular during the 19th century. Tattoos are still performed all over the world, but this is the first time there has been an all-Civil War tattoo in the country.”

Redlands Police are warning parents as they seek to identify a man who exposed himself to at least two Moore Middle School students as they walked to a bus stop Monday morning.

The girls were walking to the bus stop at Sun Avenue and Calhoun Street at about 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 10, when they saw the man exposing himself next to a silver or gray four-door sedan. The man left the area in the vehicle after being spotted by an adult.

Earlier that morning the same man reportedly approached another student in his vehicle and tried talking to her but did not expose himself.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male between 20 and 30 years old, 5 feet, 7 inches tall, with a medium build. He had a small mustache and appeared to be unshaven. He was wearing a gray sweatshirt and unknown color shorts.

The City of Redlands Recreation Division and Redlands Police Department along with several local businesses are collecting toys for the 17th Annual Children’s Christmas Block Party. This year’s toy drive is critically important. Grant funding has been limited for the past several years and the toy drive will be a major contributor to the toys/gifts given to the children this year. In previous years, the toy drives have matched the gifts purchased through grant funding allowing more than 1,000 gifts/toys to be donated to our community, local shelters and families in crisis.

Redlands Police arrested two suspects following an armed robbery at a jewelry store Wednesday. A third suspect is still outstanding.

Police responded to a silent alarm at the Tekin Brothers Jewelers, 9980 Alabama St., Suite B, at about noon Wednesday, Nov. 5.

He currently teaches self defense and strike based Jiu Jitsu out of Rancho Cucamonga. Vazquez has a long history of mixed martial arts, wrestling and Jiu Jitsu.  He travels all over the United States and Canada teaching Gracie Jiu Jitsu seminars and self defense.  Vazquez has agreed to donate his time to teach this seminar.  

The Redlands Police Department has been awarded a $155,410 grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) for a year-long program of special enforcements and public awareness efforts to prevent traffic related deaths and injuries. The Redlands Police Department will use the funding as part of the city’s ongoing commitment to keep our roadways safe and improve the quality of life through both enforcement and education.

“RPD’s partnership with the California Office of Traffic Safety provides our department with the resources necessary to address the traffic issues and provide the educational efforts necessary to provide safe streets in our community,” said Redlands Chief of Police Mark A. Garcia.
