Local myths of Fontana that are quite real....




We often hear rumors about who or what might have lived, or died or has family in an area.. Below are some figures, some most noticeable and others not so notorious that once had something to do with the city of Fontana.

Gangster Al Capone once had a home in Fontana, which was notable for the initial "C" displayed on one of the home's chimneys. It was rumored that Capone had secret passageways or tunnels built under the house that led out into the back yard making for a quick escape in case his place was ever surrounded by the fuzz. No tunnels were ever found though after the home was torn down. And we all know what happened to Al after he left Fontana.

The Crlenica Brothers, a local Slavic "Tamburitza" musical group, lived in Fontana, had a music store on Arrow Blvd., and played music locally for Fontana's large Slavic population. Unbeknownst to most Fontana residents, they also did some movie work in Hollywood, performing on the soundtrack of "Dr. Zhivago", and also in the movie "Patton," near the end of the movie in the Russian dance scene.

Shelton Brooks, legendary songwriter and bandleader of the early 20th century, spent several decades in his later years living in Fontana. The writer of such hits as "Darktown Strutters’ Ball" and "Some of These Days," he would buy a new Cadillac every year with his songwriter royalties.. As a leader of his own successful big band, he hobnobbed with the Hollywood elite and became especially close to torch singer Sophie Tucker, known as The Last of the Red Hot Mammas.
Whitman Mayo, the actor who played Shady Grady in the TV series "Sanford and Son," moved with his family from New York City to Fontana in 1967, when he was 37. While living in Fontana he attended Chaffey College in nearby Cucamonga.. He once served as the Grand Marshall in the Fontana Days parade.

Legendary motorcycle builder Denver Mullins was from Fontana.. He started a bike shop, Denver’s Choppers, in San Bernardino in 1967, where he was the first to toy in the building of custom bikes and replacement bike parts. The shop later moved to Henderson, Nevada, just outside Las Vegas, where it still operates to this day. Denver died in a racing boat accident in 1992.

Henry Kaiser’s steel mill in Fontana was the only steel mill west of the Mississippi River.. During WWII Kaiser shipbuilding contributed hundreds of naval and merchant vessels.. The steel mill scene in Arnold Schwarzenegger’s movie "Terminator 2" was filmed in the abandoned Kaiser Steel Mill. Robo Cop was also filmed at the old steel mill as well as many sci-fi and police movies.

What ever happened to Ro-Val’s automobile museum, located on Foothill Blvd on the western outskirts between Fontana and Cucamonga? It was for a while the home for many classic automobiles of the 20’s and 30’s, including a huge vehicle once owned by screen actor Fatty Arbuckle. When the Ro-Val museum closed, the vehicles were sold to Bill Harrah, a Nevada casino owner and automobile collector, who placed them on display in the museum located at his casino.

In the 1950’s and 60’s Fontana was home to a famous drag racing strip that was a significant venue in the NHRA circuit. Known officially as Mickey Thompson’s Fontana International Dragway, it was also referred to as Fontana Drag City or just plain old Fontana Drag Strip. The original Fontana strip closed after several serous accidents and deaths to the drivers ad the NHRA deemed the track to short and narrow for safe racing.

Al Capone house in Fontana, CA

Al Capone's house is still standing. Google "images" of Al Capone's Fontana house. Then if you live local the address is 8775 Tamarind Ave. Fontana, CA. It’s the exact same house just without the "C" on the chimney.

Fontana, CA

One way to find out for sure which is his house, is to do a Title search. It shows all previous owners.

As far as the changes in Fontana. I was raised and lived there from 1956 to 1979. I go back from time to time because I have family there. I moved to the High Desert so I am not far away. I remember going into a store, Walmart, and no one around me was speaking English. Before anyone starts thinking I am prejudice, don't. My husband of 42 yrs is Hawaiian, people always think he is Mexican. My 3 of my 4 kids have olive skin, dark hair, dark eyes. Two of them are married to people that are Hispanic. But the influx of illegals has hurt all our lives. My best friends husband is Hispanic and he was born here and so was his parents. He has been a roofer his whole life. He gets paid less now, than he did 10yrs ago. He said, it is because the illegals get hired, and take less pay. But they don't have to pay taxes. They get paid under the table. He works all over Southern California. Their children get free education, free medical services, plus free food from the schools,(my daughter is a teacher) so she tells me all the free services that we pay for, for the kids that don't speak english. The schools also spend money on extra services to help these kids because they are behind the other students that speak and understand English. Think about all the businesses that supply everything in English and Spanish. It has to cost them money to do that. Who do you think ends up paying for that. This is not just a problem in Fontana. The things I just mentioned are in the High Desert. When there is a crime in the papers or on the news 90% of the time the name is a Hispanic. I think because they are undocumented they are bolder.

All races have bad seeds. Some more than others, but we won't go there. My point is our government has only put a bandaid on something that is hemorrhaging. So it amounts to, they have done nothing, to stop this influx of illegals. They could if they wanted to. How many of us know about illegals and where they live. Their kids are in the schools for gods sake. I have a family member that is a labor and delivery nurse, she says they deliver babies for illegal parents all the time. They are planting marijuana in our National Parks and shooting people that come near, and our government know about it. How did that happen?

So, I think what we should do, is make them legal. It's to late to do anything else. Make them have a Social Security card. Pay taxes like the rest of us. Can you imagine how much money that would bring in. Maybe our schools could actually provide good educations to all the students. Our cities would have more money. Place stiff fines on these businesses that are using the ones that aren't made legal. Stiff enough to hurt them big time. If they were legal citizens employers wouldn't give them a job instead of you, just to save money. They are hard workers, most of them. But it would even the playing field. The law, would be able to keep track of them. Deport any that choose not to become legal. Even if we have to go door to door. I feel that this is the only way to fix this problem. We are hemorrhaging here. I, for one am tired of the politicians constantly wanting more money from us. They complain they don't have enough money. Well here is the answer, kill two birds with one stone. Stop giving away our money. Spend it on us and our cities to make our lives better. Isn't that why we pay taxes?

Re: Fontana, CA

Hey, you're stupid. I don't know how to put it lightly. Yes, there is an immigration problem in the U.S, and that's where it stops. Businesses higher illegals because it's cheaper? Of course they do, they are out for profit marings aren't they? So you should be mad at the businesses that hire illegals. You think they are taking our hard earned money? No, illegals don't qualify for wel fare and many other programs. In fact, everytime an illegal buys something in the United States, he pays taxes. The very little that do work in this country (it's rather difficult, you know about that, which i'm sure you do, right?) without a social secuirty card make very little, so little that if thwy dropped off the face of the earth tomorrow. Our economoy wouldn't even notice. You like to blane others for your problem. When the fact is you're laziness got you what you have today. If you weren't lazy, and actually were a player in our economoy, you would know illegals aren't hurting us. It's the major higher ups.

Re: Fontana, CA

wake up 1000s of babies are being born from the illegal population!!tens of thousands

Mexicans in Fontana

It's funny the comments about the Mexicans taking over Fontana. I'm third generation to be born at kaiser hospital and to grow up in Fontana. I am Mexican and my family helped build Fontana and had a huge hand in the community. The town was once segregated, the whites that had money lived on the north side and all other races lived on the south side. My family worked at the pig and bird farms, they worked at the steel mill, and they ran local businesses. So you see Mexicans aren't something new or what's destroyed the town. Fontana is affordable and once upon a time it was quite. In the 90's when they built Southridge it opened a ton of affordable housing wich attracted family's trying to get out of gang infested Los Angeles. Unfortunately with some of these families they brought the gangs with them adding to the gangs we already had, resulting in a crime explosion. This has kept the real estate prices down and a never ending cycle of more crime being added. The statistics about the crime rates aren't true, it's just a bunch of nonsense the politicians print on paper to make people feel safer. Open your eyes and determine it with your gut. I don't live in Fontana anymore and I won't ever again. My parents still do but the rest of my family has relocated. The city is broken and the troubles come from all shapes and forms regardless of race. I will not defend a city that I watched die and crumble by the hands of outsiders that had no part in building it in the first place. Mexicans, Caucasians, and Italians all had a place in building Fontana. It has a rich history of being a hideout and getaway for many walks of life. All the stories of Al Capone, KKK, and the Hells Angels are very true. Lots of criminal master minds had they're stay and pass through the town. Now it's full of a bunch of empty headed thugs, drug dealers and low life's. Sad.

Re: Mexicans in Fontana

I agree there have been Hispanic people in Fontana for a long time. I was born in San Bernardino in 52, moved to Fontana in 1956. Grew up there, married and lived there until 1979 when we moved to the High Desert. But I go back all the time, because we have family still there. What everyone is talking about are the Mexicans that have immigrated here, a lot of them illegally. The don't even speak English and don't want to. I was in town and went to the Walmart with family and everywhere I went in the store all I heard was spanish. We are Americans, why do we have to print everything in Spanish. It has always been a given. When you move to America you learn English. In fact one of the criteria to become a citizen, is to speak English.
Some of my ancestors came from countries that didn't speak English. They did not expect all the signs and paperwork to be printed in their language. We have immigrants from more than just Mexico. Do we print everything in all those languages? No. Because this is America. If you want to live here, learn the language. Just to give you some perspective. What if for some reason 50,000 people moved to your town that only spoke German. Everywhere you went in your town all you heard was them speaking German. Then they started printing all the signs in German. All literature for anything, was printed in German as well as English. Then what if your childs education was being effected because the teacher had to take things slower, and pay extra attention to these students that spoke only German. Then the schools test scores go down. Not because the teachers aren't doing their job, because the students that can't speak English and their families at home don't even try to learn English. All this brings down the test scores. Also your government that is bleeding you dry with taxes as it is, wants more money so they can take care of these illegal immigrants, that get paid under the table so they don't even pay income tax. But you do, so the government can afford to give extra money away. I mean put yourself in that mind set. Why wouldn't it make you bitter or irritated. Its like someone moves into your house uninvited, then thinks you should change your whole life around just for them. Not only do they not contribute financially, but they break the law, don't follow the rules, you have been raised to follow.

I tell you one thing if I moved to another country. The first thing I would do is learn the language. Trust me if you moved to France or Norway or Japan. They would expect you to follow their laws and speak their language. So why are we crucified here, because we don't want people from another country coming here and not contributing financially to the running of the country. But expecting to reap benefits from it. Free medical, free schooling for their kids, then collecting welfare for the children that they snuck over here and had so they would be citizens.

That's another pet peeve. If the parent is in this country illegally. No way should their children be citizens just because they are born here. If the parent is here legally sure. But not if they are here illegally. In the early 1900's it use to be, if a citizen of the US married an immigrant that was not a citizen yet. They lost their citizenship until their spouse got their naturalization papers. So it can be changed. It is not just Hispanics that do that. Come here to have their child so the child will be a citizen. Some of the terrorists are citizens just because they were born here. These people that come here and don't respect the citizens or our way of life need to go back where they came from, no matter where they came from.

Re: Mexicans in Fontana

Que?

Re: Mexicans in Fontana

Thank you I completely agree!

Re: Mexicans in Fontana

thank you for your post..if we decided to move to mexico we would have to speak what?/yes spanish its onlt lodgic its too bad these people are so stupid

Re: Mexicans in Fontana

It's not so much the population in Fontana. I too, have witnessed the demise of pride of townmanship. I've witnessed the corruption in the Police dept. and the City departments including the water company who is guessing the bill we pay per month. Have you looked at your water meter? The dial cover is dull and you can't see anything inside, So how do they tell us how much to pay each month. I fought back and got the reduction, we all should fight back to regain our control of funds we have. We all have to do what is right to regain the pride we have in our environments. To many lives have been changed over the ignorance many people have endured.

Re: Local myths of Fontana that are quite real....

I am not sure how I came across this page but boy am I happy I did!! This has been most amusing. Found some very creative name calling that made me laugh out loud!

As a person born and raised in Fontana (yes one those born at Kaiser in 1957 and still here working at Kaiser), I can agree with some things said. Not a smogpit (was that the term?) since Kaiser Steel shut down. But not my old home town at all. It sucks to read banners hung accross Sierra in a language I don't understand. But with that said diversity was always a strong point here growing up. It never mattered what your race was just that you were a good person whose word was always honored. If not then the KKK or Al Capone would correct you! LOL!!!!

KKK in Fontana California

18~16 years ago my father used to climb the hills by the Nature Center and said he used to see men in white robes burning a cross and just hanging out all the time (and go drinking).
He has said this happened in several occasions, but he did not even have a single clue who the KKK was. Him knowing obviously being illegal. He was with his buddies and they all vouched for this

Re: KKK in Fontana and Al Capone houses

Fontana is the armpit smoghole of California. Remember there is no such thing as ghosts.. The fallen angels {demons} are real 1/3 of the angels fell from heaven with satan .. The dead are dead.. But evil spirits {demons the fallen} can impersonate anyone they choose to the the ignorant believers of ghosts.

Fontana, CA

You're an armpit smoghole! You obviously don't belong on this page so go back to where you started and go preach to someone who wants to hear your bs...tootle-loo!

Re: Fontana, CA

I think he belongs on this page just as much as you do. But he did make one mistake about Fontana.. He spelled "smoghole" wrong. It's actually spelled S H I T H O L E .. and, what makes Fontana that way is not where it is, the business, or the few fine people that live there. What makes Fontana a shithole are the shithole people (and their shitty children) that live there. So, if you don't like the reality of what Fontana has become, talk to your neighbor about it. But chances are your neighbor will be too busy stealing cars, starting fights, or spray painting a freeway overpass to care..

Now before you go spouting off about how not everyone in Fontana is a a shitbag, re-read what I just wrote....

...See there? I said there are a few fine people that live in Fontana.. But, the MAJORITY or TOO MANY are just worthless wastes of otherwise good human skin.. and it is those people that are giving Fontana a bad name.. again.. If you don't like this reality, go talk to them.

Re: Fontana, CA

payasos

Re: Fontana, CA

Ok lets break down your worthless utterance of a statement filled with nothing but worthless statements.

First your stated three points on the character of the citizens of this city.
"busy stealing cars, starting fights, or spray painting a freeway overpass"

Ok your first point is stealing cars if we look at the article found at (http://www.dailybulletin.com/ci_23803746/fontana-ranked-15th-safest-city-nation) "This city has been ranked as the 15th safest in America, according to Business Insider, an Internet-only publication that used the FBI's preliminary 2012 unified crime report data for 2012 to compile city rankings."
Oh what do you know Fontana is actually pretty safe in that area not to mention the police department when compared to other departments across California is one of the top departments state wide. the same article states Fontana is 4th safest in the state of California.
So much for being busy stealing cars huh...

Now onto your second point, starting fights.
When was the last you heard of a riot in fontana California...oh thats right there has not been any. You overgeneralized "the MAJORITY" if this were true my friend for a city's majority to hold this attitude a riot would logically ensue. Aside from this Fontana has not been known to be the epicenter of any political outrage, the statistics being 4th safest in the state would surely not have this ranking if its majority of people were constantly picking fights.

Your third point spray painting a freeway overpass, Fontana has not been known to have a problem with tagging on freeway overpasses or anywhere to be honest. If you take the time to drive throughout all fontana it is a pretty spray paint free city.

You also mentioned "the shithole people (and their shitty children)" Well lets break this down too shall we. Shithole people hmm for a city that is pretty clean has top rated police department and isnt on constant riot alert. Well seems like a pretty normal city and if being a part of a community that holds these qualities makes people shitholes then i would see your point but I do not. You want to know shithole people go join a bigot filled organization that preys on people for their own pleasure once you spend a week with real shitholes let me know what you think of the fontana residents then ok. You also made a point of "shitty children" I wish to implore on this, what exactly makes them shitty? You said children so this must mean you are speaking of the age range between 5-12 or 1-12(if you include toddlers)age range at this pointmost children havent even formed a full sense of identity most of these children have no idea what they are doing, so I have no idea how they can be shitty if children are for the most part unaware of their own behavior and regulation of said behavior is a process over time into adulthood. It seems to place a label of shitty on children or any child makes you quite a "shitty" person yourself, and the fact that you would say "the MAJORITY or TOO MANY or just worthless wastes of otherwise good human skin" makes you a person of little critical thought who overgeneralizes a whole population.

in other words to put it simply for your obviously underdeveloped mind, your points have been proven wrong. They are worthless wastes of the english vocabulary. In other cases people are entitled to their opinions but when you claim them to be facts and use childish methods to put down people...well I'm sorry to tell you that in this case there is a right and wrong and facts are facts just happened to be that your facts are not the right one YOU STUPID BITCH CUNT FUCK!

That last phrase was my attempt to use vocabulary you may be more familiar with. I apologize for any hard feelings that may have arisen.

Have a nice day and don't forget to smile.

Re: Fontana, CA

Your actually incorrect there was a riot back in 08'. It took place at Fontana High.

Re: Fontana, CA

When I stated riots in fontana, I was speaking about citywide riots not school incited riots. A citywide riot the likes of the Rodney King Riots. As far as school incited riots those are isolated incidents with confounding variables that makes it hard to pinpoint on one specific reason. Whether the Fontana High riot in 08 was a political, school related, or social related reason it is hard to tell. However due to that riot's lack of momentum onto other Fontana High schools we can infer that the riot was not one with a political incentive towards the fontana government so from that we further infer that Fontana as a city did not have an active hand in adding fuel to the fire. It may have been due to other more sociological leanings.

Re: Fontana, CA

I grew up and went to school in Fontana. My husband graduated in 1967, I graduated in 170. We had racially motivated fights at Fontana High School. It was either the Mexicans or the Blacks fighting. When my husband was there, someone got stabbed in the school cafeteria. When I was there the parents of the black students came on campus. They were attacking any student that was not in class. One of my friends was going to the office and she was attacked and beat up. The parents were yelling kill her, kill her. I have no idea what it was all about. But for the parents to come on the school campus and encourage their kids to beat up other kids was really scary.
You have to try and imagine how shocking that behavior was then. There had never been an occasion where people go into a businesses and shoot people, that was unheard of. In my time your kids could ride their bikes all over town and not worry about someone hurting them. They could go to the park, without their parents, to play, and be safe. Other adults in the neighborhood, kept an eye out, for each others kids. So to have racially motivated fights was shocking. Maybe that was the beginning of our society heading down the shoot to where it is now.
If you were born in the 1970's, or later, you probably don't realize just how bad things have gotten everywhere. It's not safe anywhere in southern California. It not safe in a lot of places, like Colorado. What is that about. Why do they have so many shootings. What's wrong with people now days? We are doing something wrong. It is only going to get worse. You can't even go into the Mall without taking a chance with your life.
What I am getting at is, that is why people say the things they do about Fontana getting so bad. I live in the High Desert. I moved from Fontana in 1979. But go back there all the time for family and the doctor. So I have seen the changes. But the High Desert has gone through some of the same transformations. When we moved up here people were friendly and helpful. There were no bad areas to live in. Now, there are so many areas that have been turned into crime central that it's crazy. Just like Fontana, we have had a huge influx of people, a lot from the LA area. We have prisons up here now. Well guess what comes with prisons. The families and their delinquents. Brand new housing tracks have been turned into ghettos. Places where no reasonable person would feel safe. It makes you angry.
You spent your whole life building your life and your home. Then people move in and destroy what you have spent a lifetime building. That is why, people get so angry about all the changes. What race are 80% of these people Mexican or black. People get mad when they are profiled. Well do something about it. All the mexicans and blacks that, are criminals, are making life worse for the ones that aren't. Stop looking the other way when a family member or someone you know commits crimes. You can't have it both ways.

San Bernardino county has more people on welfare than any other county. My daughter is a teacher up here. She says that 90% of their students get free lunches. A large percentage don't even speak English. What is that about. If you were born here you should know how to speak English. Why are our tax dollars feeding all these people instead of giving our kids a good education. What is going to happen when all the people that don't get free lunch, leaves California. Who will pay for it then.I don't see anything getting better. It seems like every generation is worse than the last. I remember a video I saw, they did a study on rats. Their social structure and behavior is a lot like humans. When they became over crowded, they started turning on each other, attacking and eating each other. Just think on that.

Fontana, CA

You're exactly the reason I dont live in fontana

Re: Fontana, CA

Never knew a person on the internet you've never met before could prevent you from living in a city that seems to have a pretty well off population. I don't know if I should be glad someone like you doesnt live in Fontana or sad that you wouldn't even be open minded to the idea that Fontana may not be a shithole after all. Different strokes for different folks i suppose, but honestly maybe you should be a little less critical of a place you've never even inhabited before. Now I am not saying Fontana is perfect, of course every city has its faults but Fontana has proven its no shithole.

you said I'm the exact reason you dont live in fontana, may I ask why that is?

I am not physically, financially, psychologically, or in any other sense stopping you, by all means go to fontana and give it an honest chance. Is it because you didn't like my Argument? It was researched and I provided proof countering statements said before using statistical evidence and slang so as to appropriate my self to the level of "shithole" slang used. If you can provide a counter argument I will without hesitation read it without bias and if you can prove me wrong by all means do.
I'm also not forcing you to love fontana either I saw points made that were untrue I would have done the same for any other city.

In review of what I just said if I am not forcing you to love fontana or somehow stopping you from living there I can't see why I am a reason why you dont live there...just gave some facts about a city and went down to the same level as far as insults went, after all I didn't throw the first punch.

Have a nice day.

Re: Fontana, CA

I live in fontana and I love it met my super sexy wife here been here 28 yrs and met her 16 yrs ago can't much complain but for the influx of nigs and wets.

Re: Fontana, CA

Did you really say that? You just used two idiotic racial slurs...YOU'RE type is why Fontana has sucked....NOT people of color, you Asshat.

Re: Fontana, CA

Racists, as much as you may dislike them, do not directly impact a city's crime rate or a city's 'suck rate'. So, you would be wrong in saying that it is people like him that make Fontana suck. The people that make Fontana suck are the people out committing crime in the streets, vandalizing property, and not keeping their homes in good shape/leaving cars up on blocks on the front yard.

he may be a racist, he may be ignorant, but that has nothing to do with how much Fontana sucks. Channel your online outrage properly. Otherwise, you just look like an idiot and accomplish nothing.. Asshat..

Re: Fontana, CA

Im not racist I just hate illegals whom take all the jobs from legal folk and people who live off welfare cause they can and if they are told no they would scream racism thats all I was saying but I think I hate everyone like this equally so im not racist!

Re: Fontana, CA

I beg to differ. Racism increases hate, which increases emotional lethargy and jadedness, which then in turn creates an unsafe city. when groups of people are battling away, that divide does not make for a "community feel" other than a negative and decisive one.

I do not need your counsel - I am quite aware of how to "channel my online outrage properly, thank you, kindly.

We have a "starter" house here. It's where we could afford. I like the family-feel of my neighborhood, but I dislike this city as a whole. I don't think you are "wrong," but I think your portion of "right" is just too limited. Perhaps its the sociologist in me, I don't know.

Re: Fontana, CA

dont see how you can evan breathe it is so polluted there,it is down in a valley where all of SO CALs bad air resides.Only an idiot would keep living there just because of that alone.

Re: Fontana, CA

Well if you looked into the Fontana Air Quality Statistics you would see that currently in the year 2013 Fontana California has a very good Air Quality and the air quality of the city has only been shown to be getting progressively better year after year.

here is the site i got information on air quality for Fontana
http://www.homefacts.com/airquality/California/San-Bernardino-County/Fontana.html

only an idiot would make the claim that it would be nearly impossible to breathe due to pollution without providing support.

to further prove my point of here is another site http://www.usa.com/fontana-ca-air-quality.htm
if you visit this site air pollution for fontana has been steadily decreasing from 1999-2009 anything from 2009 and onward refer to the first type.

your point has been proven wrong.
have a nice day

Re: Fontana, CA

It's really not as bad as it used to be. I've been there 10 years and it cleaned up so much that the police are getting bored. I know quite a few people that live in that city and they are all going about their lives just fine.

Re: Fontana, CA

Here in Fontana for 28 years. I love it and its gotten better in some ways but worse in other ways. I used to be able to ride my skateboard or bike til late at night and my parents didn't have to worry about me getting jumped or kidnapped but that was 20 years ago when it was a lot lighter but now its gotten darker. I'm afraid for my kids to go down the street after dark without this bash mob bullshit or wets trying to be down with some bullshit gang. That's just my perspective though!
