Corona, CA: Food Review of Jersey's Pizza & Italian Restaurant (4 out of 5 Stars)

Jersey's Pizza and Italian Restaurant
1197 Magnolia Ave
Corona, CA 92879
(951) 279-4100

Went there last night with the family. The counter sales associate was very nice, helpful and willing to help us in any way. They have a large menu, compared to other pizza restaurants (lots of Italian dishes) We had their Garden Salad, XL Pepperoni Pizza and Chicken Strips. The salad was a full iceberg lettuce salad, with a homemade Italian dressing. It didn't wow me, but there was a nice assortment of vegetables in it, more than I expected.

The pizza was excellent, however. The flavor of their homemade sauce was exceptional, and the thickness of the pizza was just right for me; I prefer NY style - thin crust. They also have a thick crust that I didn't try. Overall, the pizza was one of the best I've tasted for a while. And we also tried their fried canolli (spelling?) with chocolate and Caramel sauce. It was simply amazing. The Choc sauce could have been thicker, but overall, it was very good. Jersey's has a nice and clean interior, with a game room that's ready for kids to play in. The games take tokens, and you get a deal on tokens if you feed the machine $10. The place is decorated well, with a sports theme, and big screens all over the place.

I'd definitely recommend this to anyone with a pizza craving, who still wants to see the big game.

Corona, CA: Thomas and Moss battle through taxing terrain at the Snowshoe Ski Resort

FAR Husqvarna racers took on the Snowshoe GNCC this weekend in the mountains of West Virginia. XC2 Pro Lites riders Jason Thomas and Morgan Moss battled the mud pits and rock gardens of the two 12-mile loops, which took racers along the slopes of the Snowshoe Ski Resort. Thomas was leading the charge before a broken chain ended his day prematurely, but Moss was able to capture another top-ten finish.

Thomas was out to a fourth-place start, and after the pit stop moved into first place in the XC2 class. Moss was running a strong eighth and started to advance in the field. He moved into fifth only to have his chain come off – but fortunately for Moss, it was only derailed and not broken like Thomas’. Moss was able to get his chain back on and get back into the race, but Thomas had to watch his win slip away.

“I was taking my time out there today,” Thomas said. “We worked a lot on setting up my Husqvarna TXC250 for this race. My bike was awesome and I was ready to win – just bad luck today!”

Moss worked his way back up to fifth but on the last lap got stuck in a mud hole and ended up crossing the finish line in seventh.

“I was riding good today and was going forward but I lost my chain and lost too much time,” Moss said. “Then I got stuck the last lap and that cost me a few positions.”

Despite the tough luck, Thomas is still sitting second overall in points, and Moss is still holding down eighth in the XC2 Pro Lites GNCC class.

“It’s great to see that our guys can stick with it even when bad luck strikes,” commented Product and Racing Manager Derek Sorenson. “That’s racing and you just have to keep plugging away, which I’m confident our guys at FAR Racing will do.”

Next GNCC Race: July 10 – John Penton GNCC, Millfield, Ohio

Corona, CA: Corona-Norco school board calls for marketing effort

The Corona-Norco Unified School District needs to do a better job marketing the quality of its schools as more private, charter and even neighboring public school districts try to lure students away, some board members say.

Ontario Christian School and new, nearby schools in the Chino Valley Unified School District have been delivering brochures in Eastvale, depicting public schools there as overcrowded because they are on year-round schedules, Corona-Norco school board member Bill Newberry said.

Newberry said he recently spoke to about 30 people in Eastvale who didn't know that one Corona school, Santiago High, was No. 188 on Newsweek's recent list of best high schools in America; that the district has dual-immersion programs in which students can study English and Spanish; or that the district has a school for students with special needs from preschool to adult, Victress Bower School.

That information is on the district's website, but board member Michell Skipworth said the district needs to send it to parents and the community. She suggested emailed newsletters.

Superintendent Kent Bechler suggested Newberry and Skipworth serve on a marketing committee with staff.

Skipworth said she thinks home schooling, charter schools, private schools and other districts are attracting students from district schools, and getting the state revenue. Based on average daily attendance, that's about $5,200 per student for Corona-Norco.

In 2009, the Alvord Unified School District sent postcards to families in a Riverside neighborhood touting the advantages of Lake Hills Elementary School. Lake Hills attracted new students from private and charter schools, more than covering the cost of its $2,125 marketing campaign, Alvord officials said at the time. They said most students coming from private schools were behind academically when they got to public schools.

Skipworth said she meets parents who home-school their children because they have what she called incorrect perceptions about Corona-Norco schools.

If parents knew about the options and successes within the district, including alternative high schools and magnet schools, they would be less interested when they hear radio commercials about charter schools or decide they can easily take their children to a Chino school on their way to work, Skipworth said.

The district's test scores and graduation rates continue to be better than county and state averages.

About 10 percent more of the students with disabilities are scoring in advanced and proficient on standardized tests. The graduation rate is 92 percent, and more students are meeting admissions requirements for UC and CSU schools, Deputy Superintendent Greg Plutko said.

Corona, CA: From No Experience to 'Near Perfect'

Ontario, Calif., ARCO Owner named franchisee of the year

ARCO's franchisee of the year is Amy Kim, the owner of the gas station and ampm convenience store in Ontario, Calif., reported The Inland Valley Daily Bulletin. Kim won the distinction this month from a field of 1,200 U.S. stores, according to the report. She is the first woman to win the award, which parent company BP has been handing out for 11 years.

"I was completely surprised," said Kim, who was unaware she was even in the running for the award until her name was called at a BP event in Alaska. "I started crying, I don't know why," she told the newspaper.

Considerations such as store performance and the franchisee's ability to generate positive promotion for the ampm brand led to Kim's selection, BP spokesperson Scott Dean told the paper. She received a unanimous vote from a panel of regional sales managers and the vice president of franchise operations, Dean added.

Since the Corona, Calif., resident bought the Ontario store in 2002, it has surpassed every year its sales from the prior year. The store has received consistently near-perfect scores in examinations that occur six times per year for factors such as cleanliness, safety and customer service.

"Amy is a fantastic person. She's a fantastic franchisee," Michelle Khalil, the BP regional sales manager who nominated Kim for the award, told the Daily Bulletin. "When we look at the overall, it's what do people do for the community? How do they support the people? She's a wonderful operator."

Kim bought the Ontario store, which is on a busy stretch of Archibald Avenue just off the freeway, with no experience operating a franchise. She and her parents previously owned and managed a neighborhood grocery store in Florida.

"I was a fish out of water," she said.

Kim is now a certified trainer for BP, coaching incoming ampm owners, said the report.

Owning a gas station has become more competitive in the Inland Empire, she said, since she first started in the market. "Now gas stations are oversaturated," Kim said. "It's hard to find a money-making gas station."

Corona, CA: Oregon State baseball signee Brandon Martin goes

The Oregon State baseball team's 2011 recruit list took its first hit, as shortstop prospect Brandon Martin has opted to go pro and sign a contract with Tampa Bay.

A top infielder from Corona, Calif., Martin had signed a letter of intent in November to play with the Beavers, but was selected No. 38 by Tampa Bay in the MLB draft on June 6. He is currently playing in the Rookie Gulf Coast League.

As a junior, Martin had batted .300 with five home runs and seven stolen bases for Corona Santiago High School. He was one of 13 signees that coach Pat Casey and Oregon State had inked for the upcoming season.

The Beavers are coming off a season in which they went deep into the postseason, ultimately losing to Vanderbilt in the NCAA Super Regionals in Nashville. OSU finished the season with a 41-19 overall record and 17-10 record in the Pacific-10.

Corona, CA: Larry Roeseler Back With Husqvarna

Off-road racing legend Larry Roeseler is now back in the saddle with Husqvarna, the motorcycle brand that’s as iconic as he is. The 10-time SCORE Baja 1000 winner may be racing trucks these days, but he still spends plenty of time on riding and racing motorcycles, and now when he does it will be on a Husky!

With 10 SCORE Baja 1000 wins and 10 ISDE gold medals under his belt, Larry Roeseler is one of the most revered figures in off-road. He spent a good portion of his career on Husqvarnas, and the Italian manufacturer is now thrilled to welcome him back to the family. With the support of Paul Lima of GP Cycles in San Diego, “LR” recently received his new motorcycles, and in only a few weeks time, he’s already back to racing Baja on a Husky!

“The first place I rode my TXC511 was in Baja at the Mexican 1000,” Roeseler commented. “The 511 ran great the whole time. A thousand miles later, I came back home, changed the oil and put some fresh tires on it and went to a local GP where I almost lapped the field. So far this bike’s been awesome, and it’s the buzz of the pits wherever I go. People are just amazed by the features and the innovative design of the bikes and I have a lot of people coming up to me asking questions.”

“I’m really excited to be a part of Husqvarna again,” Roeseler continued. “They’ve been a big part of my race career. Now they’re not just in my past but in my future, too.”

“It’s great having a rider of Larry’s caliber represent us,” said Husqvarna National Marketing Manager Corey Eastman. “He’s exactly the kind of guy you want out at the races talking to people about the bikes. He’s excited about where Husqvarna is headed, and so are we, so we’re happy to support his motorcycle riding and racing.”

Inland Empire, CA: Riverside County halts mail notices of property values (Be Aware)

Riverside County has decided to discontinue next month a long-standing practice of mailing out notices of assessed-value adjustments to property owners ---- a move that is expected to save up to $200,000 per year.

Instead, the county assessor-clerk-recorder's office intends to post adjustments on its website July 15. Most of the Internet-based notices will reflect the declining home market or significant home improvements that have been made over the last 12 months.

The county's cost-saving measure means most owners of homes and other private property will be able to find out what their adjusted values are ---- which determine the amount of property taxes they will pay later in the year ---- several days earlier than they have in the past.

"It's much quicker than having to wait for us to mail out a post card," said Michele Martinez-Barrera, principal auditor-appraiser, in a telephone interview last week. "This way, you can log on and get your value immediately."

However, the change also means residents who do not have computers will need to make an extra effort to find out whether their assessed values have been adjusted, because notices no longer will arrive in their mailboxes automatically. Martinez-Barrera suggested they go to local libraries or senior centers, which tend to provide Internet access.

Not everyone is a fan of the change.

"Not all seniors have the capability to go online and look up their property assessments," said Chuck Reutter, who lives in the Sun City portion of Menifee and is president of the Menifee-Perris Valley Democratic Club. "To ignore those people, I don't know if it is a good idea. I think they made a mistake."

The change was approved last week by the county Board of Supervisors.

Reutter, who is 71, said he has a computer. But he said a lot of people in Sun City and other senior communities do not.

Some can't afford computers. Others just don't like them, he said.

Many others are not going to want to go down to the local senior center or library to get on a computer, he said, or won't be able to because of their health.

The county says it is prepared to deal with situations that arise.

"If you're homebound and can't get to those places, you can call us," Martinez-Barrera said.

She said the county still will mail out the traditional notices upon request. And she said anyone can make such a request.

"You don't have to be homebound," Martinez-Barrera said. "We'll honor a request if you call us."

The county typically mails out assessed-value notices over the summer, before sending out property-tax bills in October. Property taxes are paid in two installments, the first of which is due in December and the second of which is due the following April.

In recent years, because of plunging home values throughout Southern California, and in the Inland Empire in particular, Riverside County has been mailing more than 400,000 notices each summer at a cost of $150,000 to $200,000, Martinez-Barrera said. She said the estimated savings factors in costs for both staff labor and postage.

Martinez-Barrera said an additional 400,000 notices would have been sent out next month, had it not been for the policy change.

As it is, those notices will be posted on the Internet instead. She said the county also plans to post assessed values of the rest of the county's 900,000 private properties July 15, including those that have not been adjusted.

She said owners will be able to check by using their assessor parcel number or the property's address.

Reutter said he doesn't like that, either.

"It opens up the potential for corruption here," Reutter said.

According to a report, the county sought to address that concern by not revealing a property owner's name and mailing address.

The program was adopted under the guidelines of a new state law that allows counties to use the Internet, instead of the mail, to notify property owners of changes.

"We're trying to move with the technological advances," Martinez-Barrera said. "We're hoping in the future to move toward putting more things online for our customers."

Property owners may obtain printed notices by calling 951-955-6200, or by writing to: Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder Larry Ward, P.O. Box 12004, Riverside, CA 92502-2204.

Owners may view notices online beginning July 15 at

Corona, CA: Corona to lay off 15 police officers due to budget

The Corona Police Department will begin laying off 15 officers - about 10 percent of its force - in just over a week.

This comes after salary negotiations between the department and the city broke down.

The 15 layoffs will all come from within the patrol division.

"I don't think it's acceptable for any of these police officers to go away. I surely hope that something can be worked out between the groups to be able to make this not happen," said Corona police Chief Richard Madory. "It's not a good day for the city of Corona. I'm hopeful something would happen to be able to change it."

The chief said the 15 patrol positions will be filled by officers in other divisions.

Corona, CA: Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki Go After Two Win-Streaks in Colorado

The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team will attempt to keep two different win-streaks alive as the riders head 6182 feet above sea level for the fifth round of the AMA Motocross Championship Series at Thunder Valley MX in Lakewood, Colo. While Tyla Rattray, Dean Wilson, Blake Baggett, and Broc Tickle go after the team’s fifth-straight win of the season, the four-rider squad will also try to keep Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki as the only team to win at the venue since the series started racing there in 2005.

Carrying momentum from his second win last weekend, Rattray hopes he can be the rider to carry the season streak past the challenging Thunder Valley track. His consistency has put him up on the podium at each round this season and he looks to make another trip to the top.

“I have been in Florida all week and I think that training in the harsh conditions could help me when we go up in elevation,” said Rattray. “Everyone will have to deal with the differences in power, but our bikes have always been good there. It would be nice to win again, but I am focused on staying on the podium.”

While he has yet to earn an overall this year, Wilson remains only four points behind Rattray in the 250 class standings. His hunger for that first win also puts him at the top of the list to keep the Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki steak alive.

“I really want to come into the weekend excited to race,” said Wilson. “I think I’ve put a lot of pressure on myself and I know the wins will come. I have been so close, which also isn’t too much fun to miss out by a point here and there. If I get two good starts, I know I can have a good chance for my first overall win.”

After making his first trip to the podium in Moto 1 last weekend, Tickle has now been able to taste what it’s like to be up front. He’ll use the confidence from Budds Creek to go after another top finish at Thunder Valley.

“Even though I didn’t have a great second moto at Budds Creek, the podium gave me a boost of confidence that I needed. I knew that I could be up front, and the podium definitely proved what I had thought all along. I’ll be working hard to get back up there.”

Baggett continued to prove he can come through the pack, earning the Ricky Carmichael Hard Charger award at Budds Creek for most positions gained in one moto. The seventh place overall finish wasn’t the result he was looking for and will be ready to get back to the top of the podium for the third time this season.

“The best way I try to deal with a bad race is to put it behind me and keep my program the same during the week,” said Baggett. “I can’t change the race, but I know I tried my hardest to make up as many positions as I possibly could. Now I can focus on this weekend’s race and I’ll do what I can to get back to the podium.”

The Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki team will head to just outside the mile-high city for the fifth stop of the AMA Motocross Championship at Thunder Valley MX in Lakewood, Colo. Rattray leads the 250cc class with 174 points, while Wilson remains close with 170. Baggett maintained third with 144, while Tickle continued to move up the standings with 99 points in seventh.

Corona, CA: Cold-case murderer sentenced 22 years later

Rosemary Utesch leaned on a cane in a Corona courtroom Thursday as she told the man who killed her son 22 years earlier that the words he spoke that night had come back to haunt him.

"You spoke the last words my son heard on this earth and we know what they were. Twenty-two years later, these words have come full circle and they're right back at you," Utesch said.

Witnesses said Anthony V. Corrales, 52, of Riverside, had said, "I got you now, (expletive)" just before shooting Robert Hensley to death on Feb. 3, 1989. Corrales was sentenced Thursday to 25 years to life in prison for first-degree murder and received another 10 years for using a shotgun and other enhancements.

Hensley, also of Riverside, was shot while helping a friend repossess a truck off Tyler Street in Riverside. The truck belonged to a friend of Corrales, prosecutors said.

Corrales sat motionless in an orange jail jumpsuit during sentencing. His attorney, Public Defender Ruby Ramirez, declined to comment.

The case sat dormant for about 19 years after Riverside County prosecutors initially failed to convict Corrales. They charged him in 1989 but dropped the case after witnesses who were too afraid to testify said they could not remember what Corrales had told them about the shooting.

Physical evidence, including shell casings and a sawed-off shotgun, were not enough to prosecute, Riverside County Deputy District Attorney Laura Ozols said. An eyewitness said it was too dark to identify Corrales.

Ronald Faria, who along with Hensley were trying to repossess the truck, said he heard a shot and saw Hensley fall to the ground. A man with a shotgun walked back into a house where the truck had been parked, court documents state.

Two witnesses said Corrales told them what had happened but both were afraid to testify.

Utesch persisted after the case fell apart, calling investigators every year.

"Even after calling the DA's office every year on his birthday and hearing 19 nos, I knew I just needed to find the right person," Utesch said.

On the 20th year, angry that nothing had been done to reopen the case, Utesch was searching online for then-District Attorney Rod Pacheco's telephone number when she came across the cold-crimes unit. She dialed the number, and Ozols answered.

"When she got the file in her hands, she said, 'Oh yes, this should have been prosecuted 22 years ago,' " Utesch said. "I always knew in my heart, give this 20 years, this case will go to trial. Something will change."

Something did.

One witness had moved out of the area and no longer was reluctant to testify. The other witness also agreed. Corrales' defense, that his now-dead friend had killed Hensley, did not hold up.

After the sentencing, Utesch handed Ozols a glass plaque that read "Thank you for your dedication and passion."

As she did so, Hensley's father, Mike Hensley, walked away crying.

"I never thought I would see this day," he said.

Corona, CA: Jury Picked for Trial of Former Ambulance Driver Accused in Fatal Fatal DUI

A jury was seated today for the trial of a former ambulance driver accused of causing the death of an 18-year-old college student by driving drunk and going the wrong way on a four-lane road.

Elva Diaz, 32, of Corona could face 15 years to life in prison if convicted of second-degree murder, gross vehicular manslaughter and driving with a suspended license while under the influence -- a misdemeanor -- in the Feb. 21, 2008, death of Rachel Amaris Elliott of Irvine.

More than 100 prospective jurors were screened Monday, Tuesday and today, with a panel being seated this afternoon by Riverside County Superior Court Judge Mark Johnson. He scheduled opening statements for tomorrow at 9 a.m.

Diaz, who remains in custody at the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside in lieu of $5 million bail, was a fugitive for more than a year. She was located by authorities last August in Santa Cruz De Camotian, near Guadalajara, Mexico.

Prosecutors allege the former ambulance driver and emergency medical technician had been drinking at a bar in the hours prior to the fatal head-on collision on Knabe Road in Corona and was told by her boyfriend and other patrons not to drive, which she disregarded.

The defendant traveled onto Knabe Road and was headed south in the northbound lanes, speeding toward Claystone Avenue, when her car slammed into Elliott's, district attorney's spokesman John Hall said.

The young woman died hours later at Inland Valley Medical Center in Wildomar.

Diaz posted a $75,000 bond after her arrest and jumped bail a year later -- just as her trial was set to begin -- fleeing south of the border.

Elliott's family maintains a website dedicated to her at

According to the young woman's biography, she was studying to be a forensic technician. Ironically, she had been an active participant in her high school's "Every 15 Minutes" program, which emphasizes the dangers of drinking and driving.
