SAN BERNARDINO, CA- This past weekend, Saturday, September 6, 22 young women competed for the honor of representing San Bernardino High School, Cardinal City and the City of San Bernardino. During the pageant, Miss Cardinal City contestants were ranked by a panel of judges in on-stage categories ranging from sportswear, evening gown and an on-stage question. Off-stage categories included grades, attendance and personal interviews.
According to pageant director and Bilingual School Outreach Worker Jamie Rios, two of the goals for Miss Cardinal City and related pageant Mr. Cardinal City are to develop students’ confidence and raise community awareness and pride in San Bernardino High and the city.
“San Bernardino High is the oldest public high school in the entire county,” she states.  “It is also part of two cities. Many people don’t realize the high school itself is a chartered city, Cardinal City.  With that kind of history and community significance, I felt we needed ambassadors, young people who could represent all these different and note-worthy aspects of San Bernardino High School.”
Sponsors that helped to make the pageant a success were Stater Bros. Markets, D’Arca Formal Wear, Angel’s Closet, Fairview Ford, The Way World Outreach, Marinello Schools of Beauty, San Bernardino Sun newspaper, San Bernardino High School Class of 1961, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hickey, Mrs. Pat Williams, First Ward Councilwoman Virginia Marquez, Mr. Jim Smith, Mr. Anyabwile Naazir, Mr. and Mrs. Greg Noble, Ms. Charlene Jones, Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Arellano, Mr. Richard Carlos, San Bernardino City Unified School District, and San Bernardino High School Associated Student Body (ASB).

ONTARIO, CA- While millions of Americans will celebrate Veteran’s Day with parties, barbeques and a day of rest, the Marcus Heart Foundation will charge the communities of Southern California to “get up, remember, give thanks and to love a veteran!” The “Give Love Tour” 2013 is a three day star studded, celebrity filled, politically honored and community supported weekend from November 9th to 11th. The event will start at the Citizens Bank Arena, 4000 E.

All veterans who attend will be honored with a meal and special notes of love from the community on the “wall of love” and they will also receive special thanks from city, state and government officials.
The food drive is a city-wide call to the communities of Riverside, San Bernardino and Los Angeles Counties to bring non-perishable food to various business locations from now until the festival. Those who attend the festival are encouraged to bring their food items on the day as well. The donated food will be given to the families of deployed, wounded and fallen heroes, as well as Veterans in need. A list of locations to drop of food will be available at www.givelovetour.com.
The festivities will continue at the same location with a night of remembrance Mega Concert with R&B Songstress Ledisi.
