Weekly Review – 1/16/10

Another great week for us in Pasadena and the San Gabriel Valley has passed, and more news has been made this week! Here are some of the top stories that made news this week:

  • After the massive Haiti earthquake earlier this week, efforts to collect donations at the Rose Bowl are ongoing and will continue today, Saturday the 16th, from 7am to 7pm. The Red Cross, along with KNBC-TV, will be collecting money in a “drive through” fashion near the South entrance to the Rose Bowl. Checks and cash will both be accepted to go directly to the Red Cross’ efforts to help Haitians effected by the earthquake.
  • Pasadena Police Department K9 “Art” will be leaving the department after getting effected by an injury he wasn’t able to recover from. Art, and his human partner Officer Tom Brown, have served nine years together for the City of Pasadena and a party was held to recognize their achievements on Thursday.
  • A large traffic accident involving a CalTrans vehicle happened on the 210 freeway after the BCS game, and officials from the California Highway Patrol now say that drunk driving may have been a factor in the crash. The accident sent five people to the hospital at about 10:30pm on Thursday night.
  • Finally, Crown City News is now on a new channel! The Pasadena Community Network, which we broadcast our show on, has moved to channel 32 effective immediately. Our online streaming will still go on as normal and will not be affected by this change.

Those were just some of the many stories that happened in the past week in the San Gabriel Valley and in Pasadena. Please click on the links in the entries to learn more about the story. Have a great week, and we’ll see you Monday night for another great episode of CCN- Crown City News!
