The Ontario Police Department Traffic Unit will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on September 22, 2017 at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 6:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. In recent years, California has seen a disturbing increase in drug-impaired driving crashes. The Ontario Police department supports the new effort from the Office of Traffic Safety that aims to educate all drivers that “DUI Doesn’t Just Mean Booze.” If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI. Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.

On Tuesday, October 3, 2017, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM, the Ovitt Family Community Library Adult Services Department is hosting a Frankenstein Party Planning Workshop for Adults.  In honor of the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’s classic novel and as part of this year’s Ontario Reads program, this fun, free workshop will offer participants the opportunity to make and taste Frankenstein-themed appetizers, desserts and beverages; and make and take Frankenstein party decorations.  During the event, Barnes & Noble will be on-site with a selection of materials available to purchase.  Supplies are limited for this event, so participation is first come, first served.
