Police have arrested the father of two toddlers who were found standing alone on an Upland street corner soon after midnight Thursday. The brothers, ages 1 and 3, were found by residents as they tried to cross at the corner of Campus Avenue and Olive Street at 12:30 a.m. The boys were not able to help police find their parents or say where they lived. Police said that as a result of news media coverage of the children, the boys' grandfather told police the boys' names.

But the "City of Gracious Living" has a problem with what some city officials consider an uncouth neighbor: a 342-acre unincorporated community that runs counter to Upland's tranquil, family-friendly charm.

A 50-year-old Upland woman apparently committed suicide by jumping into the path of a Metrolink train Wednesday morning, police said. Witnesses said Linda Kay Smith walked calmly toward the tracks at Euclid Avenue south of 9th Street. "She set her purse down about eight feet from the tracks, took three steps and dove into the train's path like she was Superman," one witness said. The westbound train had just left the Upland station and was traveling about 25 mph when it hit Smith at 7:27 a.m.
