The Rosemead Boulevard Enhancement Project is about four months along and right on schedule. Northbound Rosemead Boulevard between the railroad underpass to Las Tunas is anticipated to resume to two-lane operation in mid-July, as crews wrap up east sidewalk construction. The Gateway Project is another matter that I would rather not talk about now. All I can say is the hole is getting deeper.

With temperatures predicted at 90 degrees this week, it reminds me that free Summer Concerts in the Park began June 12 with The Answer. The expanded dance floor was put to good use. This Wednesday the featured group is Sufin’ Safari with music from the Beach Boys. This is a popular event taking place each Wednesday evening at Temple City Park entertaining between 1,000 and 1,500 happy people. Five new groups will be competing for your listening and dancing pleasure including a special Patriotic Concert on July 3.

Speaking of the park, you need to see the City Seal carved into the remaining stump of a tree planted by the Women’s Club in 1929. The tree was severely damaged in the 2011 windstorm and the city enlisted John Mahoney from West Coast Arborist to carve the City Seal into the stump with a chainsaw. It is truly a work of art!

I am happy to announce my new website dedicated to everything Temple City. It captures the spirit and community of a great city. Check it out at to see recent photo and video events. I would welcome your comments at you soon…
