A city ordinance in Rancho Cucamonga requires that homes have tile roofs for "aesthetic harmony." But firefighter William Trudeau recently argued before the City Council that aesthetic judgments should be made by people, not the government. Trudeau, who wants to replace his leaky tile roof with composition shingles, said that in his experience fighting fires, tile roofs are slippery when wet and break too easily.

Thousands of lights were twinkling. No fewer than 178 banners festooned the streets. The 60-foot white fir trucked in from Northern California was anchored fast. Santa was in his log cabin. And before dawn the shoppers began streaming in. All day Friday they came in throngs to the sprawling Victoria Gardens open-air town center in Rancho Cucamonga. "Thanksgiving is over, cooking is done and now we're on to Christmas," Darla Steffen said.

A state inspector raised concerns about sanitation and patient safety at a Rancho Cucamonga hospital almost a year before it was ordered closed this month amid concerns that poor care had led to four deaths. Last May, before Angels Hospital even opened its doors, a state Department of Heath Services inspector reported significant concerns about the lack of adequate staffing, unsanitary conditions and questionable dietary plans for patients.

A San Bernardino County Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday there was sufficient cause to justify a double-murder trial for a 22-year-old man charged with the January slaying of two Rancho Cucamonga High School students. Lanny Woosley is charged with using a machine gun to kill seniors Blake Harris, 18, and Christopher Heyman, 17, atop the Haven Avenue overpass of the Foothill Freeway on Jan. 18. The charges make Woosley eligible for the death penalty if he is convicted.
