A man threatening to jump off the interchange of Interstate 15 and the San Bernardino Freeway in Ontario created a major rush-hour traffic jam Monday afternoon after authorities temporarily halted traffic. Police said a 41-year-old Monrovia man stopped his Nissan Maxima on the interchange at 1:55 p.m., and at times dangled his legs off the highest part of the overpass, said David McBride, an Ontario police spokesman.

Six empty freight cars derailed near Ontario on Wednesday, shutting down early morning traffic along a major thoroughfare for about six hours until the cars were righted. The Union Pacific cars, which had unloaded a shipment of vehicles at the Mira Loma Auto Facility, derailed about 1:45 a.m. in the same area as they were being maneuvered by a locomotive to form a new train. Some of the cars derailed on an overpass above Etiwanda Avenue, prompting its precautionary closure.

The city and environmentalists have settled a nearly 4-year-old lawsuit over the development of 8,200 acres in south Ontario, clearing the way for construction of more than 31,000 houses, duplexes and townhouses on dairy land over the next two decades. The city's population is expected to grow by about 100,000--to 250,000--with the development.

Ontario, a burgeoning community on the western edge of San Bernardino County, boasts booming retail sales, one of the region's fastest-growing job markets and an airport that is predicting a fivefold increase in passengers by 2025. But beneath the economically sunny veneer, Ontario is the scene of an ugly political feud that has included a lengthy City Hall investigation and the censure of a councilwoman accused of berating city employees.

After months of chaotic growth, the homeless encampment known as Tent City dramatically shrank Monday as Ontario police evicted those who lacked ties to the city. Starting early in the morning, officers moved through dusty lots scattered with flapping tents and piles of old clothes and garbage. In many cases they were too late; the people had already left. "About 90% left on their own," said Det. Jeff Higbee, Ontario police spokesman. "There were no arrests, no altercations, no arguments."

Mary Jane Olhasso was a warehouse warrior. As Ontario's economic development director, Olhasso helped lead the city's efforts to wrest warehouse and distribution projects away from other communities, even appearing in print ads vowing, "We can get you through the process faster" than rival towns. The stakes were high: For two decades, the cargo container propelled an economic boom in Ontario and much of the Inland Empire.
