Is Diamond Bar an almost perfect example of political cronyism? When the City Council had an opportunity to appoint a new member (the post being vacated when Paul V. Horcher was elected to the state Assembly), they decided not to approach any of the previous council candidates to offer the spot to them. When they did make the appointment (of Parks and Recreation Commissioner Donald C. Nardella in December, 1990), the procedure gave the definite impression of having been a "done deal" before it even got started.

The City Council on Tuesday unanimously approved the operation of a free holiday shuttle to transport shoppers to about 15 shopping sites throughout the city. Scheduled to run from Nov. 23 to Dec. 31, the 20-passenger bus will make rounds of the shopping centers daily from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., except on Christmas Day.
