           country but one of its
biggest impacts has been in the In-
land Empire.
  Three years after the housing
bubble burst the experts at the In-
stitute for Spatial Economic
Analysis (ISEA) at the University
of Redlands have looked back and
forwards to forecast the future of
  “The news has been somewhat
more positive,” said Johannes
Moenius, director of the ISEA.
  He and Prof. Mak Kaboudan
looked at three counties and three
cities within those counties. The
study included Irvine, Orange and
Anaheim in Orange County; Co-
rona, Riverside, and Temecula in
Riverside County and San
Bernardino, Ontario and Redlands
in San Bernardino County.
  According to their analysis all the
cities in Orange County are ex-
pected to still see falling home
prices over the next two years be-
tween 2.5 and 9 percent.
  In Riverside and San Bernardino
counties, however, housing prices
are expected to remain flat and in
some small pockets to see growth
over the next wo years.
  Though flat home prices and little
growth are not the most welcome
economic news, it is not the fast
downward spiral that the areas
have seen in recent years.
  In fact Moenius says it is a sign
that the worst may be behind us.
The same is not true for Orange
  “Orange County is still searching
for its true bottom,” said Moenius.
“The Inland Empire has overshot
it a little bit.”
  Their analysis is the result of
them looking at past patterns of
housing data and predicting what
would happen if everything stayed
along the current course. It does
not try to manipulate the data or
situations to much to give a more
accurate prediction.
  “It’s pretty much a hands off
analysis,” said Moenius.
  The only way the forecast could
be off is if there is a major change
to the economy such as the presi-
dent’s recent jobs bill having a
larger than expected positive af-
fect, a significant increase in oil
prices, or a natural disaster.
  The analysis is also unique be-
cause it looks at the housing data
of each area taking into account

22nd Annual Stater Bros. Route 66 Rendezvous revs up Thursday - Sunday

The Route 66 Rendezvous re-
turns this Thursday to transform
downtown San Bernardino into
a car lover’s mecca.

        tater Bros. Route 66 Ren-
        dezvous is a special event
        that incorporates nostalgia
and family entertainment with an
icon of southern California
lifestyle. It debuted in 1990 as a
one-and-a-half day event at Glen
Helen Park and was produced by
the San Bernardino Convention &
Visitors Bureau (SBCVB).
  The Bureau created and owns the
Route 66 Rendezvous name and
registered trademark. The event
has grown each year and now at-
tracts over 500,000 spectators.
  The SBCVB’s primary objective
is to have a positive impact on the
San Bernardino region through
tourism by creating special events
that encourage overnight stays.
With the Stater Bros. Route 66
Rendezvous the goal is to develop
mutually beneficial relationships
with corporate sponsors that share
our vision and values while bene-
fiting from their association with
the event.
  Designed as an economic devel-
opment project, the Rendezvous
now generates over $44 million for
local economy. Vehicle participa-
tion has grown from 300 classic
cars, hot rods, customs, muscle
cars and sport cars to the limited
1,700 vehicles with each partici-
pant receiving a reserved parking
space. Many local non-profit edu-
cational and charitable organiza-
tions are given the opportunity to
participate, earning dollars for
their respective community proj-
  San Bernardino is centrally lo-
cated as the transportation hub of
Southern California. Prominently
mentioned in Bobby Troup’s im-
mortal 1946 hit song, Get Your
Kicks on Route 66, San
Bernardino embodies the Southern
California spirit with orange
groves, beautiful mountains and
palm trees.
  The mystique goes back to San
Bernardino’s legendary “E” Street,
which was also designated as US
Route 66. During the cruisin’ era,
“E” street was hopping with cool
cars and great music. During the
Rendezvous, the nostalgia contin-

2011 Lifetime Achievement inductee: David McClelland
  Known as the Voice of NHRA, Dave McClelland is one of the most
recognizable voices in all of motorsports. He has been heard not only on
the tracks, but also on radio and television coverage of the events, a role
he filled for some 50 years. Dave has placed his restored Fiat altered in
the Wally Parks NHRA Motorsports Museum after campaigning the car
for 10 years and winning the March Meet in 1998, and continues to par-
ticipate in as many street rod and street machine events as possible.
