  1. Open note to reporter F Tanyos:

    “. . . in the city of Mentone.”

    Mentone is not a city. It has no mayor; no city council; no police, fire department or school district of its own. It has no self-determination. It is a designated census area in the county of San Bernardino.

    By most legal definitions, Mentone is a “village.”

    We don’t say this in a mean way.
