The city has taken practically every measure possible to save money: It owns no property and has no police force or fire department. The city government is run by a skeleton staff of contractors. Money is in such short supply, the mayor lamented, workers can't even offer a cup of coffee to visitors who come by the makeshift City Hall. Still, it might not be enough to save Jurupa Valley. City leaders in California's newest city, established in 2011, fear it could also be the first to disincorporate in decades.

Dozens of abandoned dogs have been rescued from a Jurupa Valley house where a woman was recently evicted. Most of the 30 Chihuahua-mix dogs were found in pens in the kitchen area, officials said. Other dogs, including a mother with a litter of puppies, were running free around the house. Riverside County Animal Services officers rounded up the dogs and are caring for them. “Most of the dogs are young, 6 months to 2 years of age, and appear mostly to be Chihuahua mixes. Although some of them were very nervous, none of the dogs seemed aggressive,” Sgt. Cynthia Lee said.

The Century High School football team got its first varsity victory by defeating Jurupa Valley, 23-6, here Thursday night. The victory was only fitting because Jurupa Valley, like Century, is another school in its first season of varsity football. Karlo Balderrama gave Century a first-quarter lead when he scored on a five-yard run. Stacy de la Motte caught a pass from Henry Ruvalcava to give Century (1-3) an 8-0 lead that it never relinquished.

The jagged foothills, withered pastures and a web of horse trails along the Santa Ana River give the state's newest city a hint of the Wild West. Jurupa Valley's money troubles, though, are pure modern-day California. Jurupa Valley may be broke in a year, even though the city is so new that it has no permanent employees, no generous employee pension plan and runs City Hall out of a leased strip-mall storefront next to the Lucky Wok Chinese restaurant. Without a financial rescue, the city will have to shut its doors, sending the mishmash of Jurupa Valley communities back into the ether of unincorporated Riverside County.

When Jurupa Valley's water polo team won the Southern Section Division V title last week, beating Arlington, 9-7, at Sippy Woodhead Pool in Riverside, it was the first section championship for the school in any sport. According to Jurupa Valley Athletic Director Ralph Martinez, it had been 34 years since any school in the Jurupa Valley school district won a section title (Rubidoux won baseball in 1961). Greg Lonzo scored three goals for Jurupa Valley in the final. . . .

A few jitters and two interceptions were no problem for Johnny Martinez, who led Century to a 34-13 victory over Jurupa Valley Friday night at Santa Ana Stadium. Martinez's numbers weren't great, but after he completed eight of 16 passes for 95 yards and two touchdowns, he couldn't help but smile. In place of Karlo Balderrama, who injured his shoulder last week in a victory over La Mirada, Martinez was more than adequate. "I wanted to get my big chance," Martinez said. "I had to prove myself.
