as everyone from school board
candidates to county supervisorial
candidates, their supporters and
political watchers awaited results
after months long campaigning
and all that goes along with it.
  The biggest race in San
Bernardino County were supervi-
sorial districts 1 and 3, District 3
being the local one to the San
Bernardino area and perhaps one
of the most heated and controver-
sial races with former San Manuel
Chairman James Ramos unseating
incumbent Neil Derry with
59.09% of the vote.
  The redistricting of the former
Congressional District 4 to Con-
gressional District 35 brings a new
face to Congress, former State

  Baca has served 6 terms.
  In the 47th Assembly District
race, new candidate Cheryl Brown
beat out former Assemblymember
and Rialto Councilmember Joe
Baca Jr., with 56.23% of the vote.
Brown will succeed incumbent of
the former 62nd Assembly District
Wilmer Amina Carter, who served
two terms.
  And with 10 candidates seeking
4 seats on the San Bernardino
Community College District
Board of Trustees, the election
brings new faces to the dais start-
ing with Gloria Macías Harrison
who was the leader all night and
ended up with 16.10% of the votes
along with new faces Kathleen
Henry (11.84%) and Nick Zoum-
bus (10.36%). Incumbent John
Longville took 13.9% of the vote.
Incumbents John Futch and Jess
Vizcaino were not re-reelected.
  In Rialto, Deborah Robertson
took 56.78% of the vote over Ed
Scott for mayor with Shawn O’-
Connell and Ed Palmer winning
seats on the city council.
  In the Rialto Unified School Dis-

and Joe Martinez took seats on the
school board.
  In Redlands, Pat Gilbreath and
Pete Aguilar won seats on the city
council.
  In the San Bernardino City Uni-

                                                                               In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first

                                                                  observed with parades and public meetings and a brief suspension of business beginning

An Act (52 Stat. 351; 5                             U. S. Code, Sec. 87a) approved May 13, 1938, made the 11th of November in each year a legal
holiday—a day to be                            dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be thereafter celebrated and known as "Armistice Day."
Armistice Day was primarily a            day set aside to honor veterans of World War I, but in 1954, after World War II had required the greatest
mobilization of soldiers, sailors,    Marines and airmen in the Nation’s history; after American forces had fought aggression in Korea, the 83rd
Congress, at the urging of the veterans service organizations, amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word "Armistice" and inserting in its
place the word "Veterans." With the approval of this legislation (Public Law 380) on June 1, 1954, November 11th became a day to honor American
veterans of all wars.
          Veterans Day continues to be observed on November 11, regardless of what day of the week on which it falls.
 The restoration of the observance of Veterans Day to November 11 not only preserves the historical significance of the date,
   but helps focus attention on the important purpose of Veterans Day: A celebration to honor America's veterans for their
                      patriotism, love of country, and willingness to serve and sacrifice for the common good.

Memorial Park, 3520 E. Washington St. The ceremony will include presentation of colors,

Speakers include Kelly Chastain, mayor of Colton, and Sheryl Terkildsen, an Army nurse.
   The ceremony is sponsored by Vitas Innovative Hospice Care, Visiting Angels and

 They are fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, cousins and
  friends. We may not always agree in the wars and battles that we fight, but this should
not deter us from the support we give to these men and women in uniform. It is through the
      sacrifice that they and the numerous individuals before them have made, which
       provides us with the freedoms we have to disagree and speak our objections.
