Last night between 4-5 am a fire was initiated at Omar’s Wireless on foothill and Meridian in Rialto.
By 6 pm the wireless services store was completely burned down. And by 11 its was being reported on abc7.
Owned and operated by Omar himself and his nephew, the wireless store was much more than a regular store for the Rialto community.
Over the years the wireless store has simply become known as “Omar’s.”
“Omar’s,”Referring to him personally, because if you ever had any type of wireless issue, concern, or wish from barter to trade, sale or purchase, you could be confident that Omar got you.
The store was toast and smelled liked gas vapors. Omar looked so sad as spoke to Rialto arson and police detectives.
As he caught a break in questioning to smoke a cigarette by woodys bbq. I gave em dap, shook my head, and told him to hold his head as he shook it disgustly.
As a Rialto native and community member Omars store burning felt kind of personal because I know the dude. Everybody knows the dude. Hell help anybody and everybody without a lot of the wireless hassle, bullshit, and overpricing you get from other stores.
Omars is in a thuggy part of Rialto so I’ve seen him thug it out with any thug, hood, loud-mouth that provoke him. But he definitely a good dude.
That’s fucked up that someone may have burnt his shit down and its fucked up if it may have burnt on its own because in either event “Omars” is burnt down.
I expect fights, arguments, and craziness, and some mild rickety to go on in Omars but I never expected his shit to burn down.
So just as a positive affirmation amidst all the negativity that may circle Omars and his businesses reputation I’d like to acknowledge Omar personally along with his store as an iconic figure and landmark in Rialto city.
Hold your head Omar. My sympathy and my respect.

San Bernardino is the capital of less hope and less Homes. The Home of the homeless and hopeless. Each day in San Bernardino Men women, and young children find themselves living on the streets doing anything and everything just to make it through the hot day and cold nights…. just to do it all again tommorow. Homelessness is a sad and harsh reality in the city of San Bernardino. I would like to be a spokesman and advocate to their issues and its effects on the city.

RIALTO: Coach who was shot may face criminal charges
San Bernardino police are preparing to submit a criminal complaint to prosecutors against a Rialto basketball coach who says he was shot on his way to a park bathroom.
San Bernardino Police Chief Robert Handy said Friday that detectives plan to submit a case against Eisenhower basketball coach Steve Johnson to the San Bernardino County district attorney’s office. Police are conducting a separate investigation into the shooting.
Since the shooting, Handy said detectives have learned information, independent of Johnson, about what he was doing at the park.

The City of Fontana
The City of Fontana was incorporated on June 25, 1952. The City and its Sphere of Influence (SOI) encompass an area of approximately 52.4 square miles and contain a population of approximately 188,498 people. It is located in San Bernardino County, approximately 50 miles east of Los Angeles. Due to its geographic location, the City is identified as “…the crossroads of the Inland Empire” (Fontana Chamber of Commerce, 2008).
How Fontana Began
Fontana began as an agricultural community in 1913 and became a thriving industrial town by 1942 due to the opening of the Kaiser Steel Mill on the outskirts of town. Kaiser Steel remained a primary source of employment and revenue until 1984 when it ceased operation.
Since then, the City has continued to grow rapidly due to several factors, including:
- Development of Kaiser Permanente Hospital (one of the largest medical facilities in the region)
- Unparalleled population growth stimulating major residential, commercial, and industrial development
Since the year 2000, Fontana has been one of the fastest growing cities in Southern California (Los Angeles Times, 2003). In 2008, after reviewing data from the United States Census Bureau, the National Center for Education Statistics, the National Center for Health Statistics, and the American Bar Association, Best Life magazine deemed Fontana the 24th best place to raise a family in the United States.
Of the first 100 cities chosen by Best Life as outstanding family-oriented communities, Fontana was the fifth best place to raise a family in the State of California.

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Police were already investigating two unrelated shootings in the city when they received reports that a third shooting of the same day, critically wounded a 22-year-oldpregnant woman, killed one of her toddlers and wounded the other.
Dispatchers received the call at 7:40 p.m. from the 1300 block of D Street, said Lt. David Harp. Initial reports indicated that the shooter fired shots from a moving car into the woman’s home, but Harp said evidence now suggests that the suspect fired while on bicycles.
Why the shooter opened fire on the home is not yet clear, But the results of the shooting were undeniably tragic. Bullets hit the unidentified pregnant woman and her two children.
The woman’s daughter, 3, was pronounvced dead at St. Bernardine’s Hospital.
A second girl — also 3-years-old — is in extremely critical condition at Loma Linda University Medical Center, he said. The wounded girl is not related to the pregnant woman, said Lt. Gwen Waters.
The mother is in critical condition at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center in Colton.
Homicide detectives are still processing the scene, Harp said.
Police have not yet released a description of the victim.
Two other men were wounded in other shootings in the city earlier in the day, Harp said.
