News ImageThe San Bernardino Public Library to host Manga/Anime Workshop by Mexico City’s Gaby Maya
Artist and writer, Gaby Maya, will be visiting the San Bernardino Public Library on Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at 3:30 p.m. She will do a talk about some of the origins of manga and anime, as well as the influence of manga and anime in Mexico. Gaby says, "We have a culture here (in Mexico) where anime has been a bridge to close the generation gap between parents and kids. Because everyone has watched an anime they love, and thanks to the constant re-runs, they share it with their kids. It's something very Mexican, indeed."

STATEMENT REGARDING SAN BERNARDINO POLICE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION AGREEMENT
Attribute to Mayor Davis:

On August 14, 2014, the City of San Bernardino announced that a tentative long-term agreement had been reached with the San Bernardino Police Officers Association (SBPOA). That agreement was unanimously passed by the City Council and approved by the SBPOA membership. Both parties affirmed to Judge Jury in federal bankruptcy court that a tentative agreement had been reached through mediation. Last week's announcement by union leadership that the City has misinterpreted the terms of this agreement is simply not true.
