to OLB - A Positive Community Resource Devoted To
For those new to OurLosBanos.com.. you may have a question:
Our Los Banos is an information portal, presented to the community as our free gift. It is intended to be used by our neighbors as well as people visiting our community.
We hope you enjoy 'opinion-rich journalism' usually with a generally positive twist. Though this site and the stories and articles presented herein are based totally on our own opinions, our goal is to bring a unique community-centric approach to what we do.. We try to accomplish the above through producing stories, articles, and photojournalistic essays on community events, news, and other interesting happenings.
It is our hope that through these pieces people will develop a sense of community and perhaps be interested enough to help or participate in some of the things that Los Banos has to offer.
We see OurLosBanos.com (in part) as our version of service to our community. As freelance journalists we also regularly contribute to local as well as regional newspapers and other publications as either stringers or reporters.
Our contributions have included photography, news articles, event coverage, and feature / spotlight pieces. We really do love our town and want to help Los Banos by giving something back to our city in our own small way.
We hope you will enjoy what you find on these pages.

The Informational Section of OurLosBanos.com (part of which you are reading now) is a rich and detailed resource intended to give site visitors an overview of our opinions about the City of Los Banos California and, more importantly, to provide avenues for learning more information about our town.
This general informational section includes hundreds of pages of information on parks, real estate, recreation, churches, public education and schools, a guide to moving to Los Banos, government contact points, jobs / employment and some information on public safety. There is also an extensive section on Community Clubs, Groups, Orders, & Organizations .
There is also a portion of the site we call "Our Town" which is a catchall section for neat things that do not fit in some of the other categories.
Of course no site would be complete without direct editorial opinions - and we share our personal viewpoints freely throughout the site but especially on our opinion blog which features an ever expanding "What This Town Needs" series of opinion pieces.
We hope to provide website visitors with a 'one stop shop' where they can find leads, direct information, and importantly links to other sites relating to Los Banos and our community.
To explore our opinions in the informational section of OurLosBanos.com, select any of the links in the above paragraphs or any of the buttons on the left side of this page. Take your time and explore this site! We think you'll find some nice surprises.
Has it been FIVE YEARS already?!?!?
YUP!!! It has been a half decade since we started this website in the summer of 2006. Many things have happened in that time. We have enjoyed evolving this site - trying new things an replacing others... and we are still going strong - despite the fact this has all been a voluntary effort on our part.
Early on we introduced the public to our motto about community service:
Our Los Banos celebrated FIVE YEARS of doing just that this summer. We have really enjoyed all of the opportunities that doing so has opened up and we hope that you are still enjoying this site and that it has been helpful to you.
We genuinely appreciate links from other websites to OurLosBanos.com. If you have a webpage of any kind please link us. There are free linking graphics available here if you would like to grab a button to use on your site. Likewise if you have a site specifically related to Los Banos or a local business, or community group or organization we would be quite pleased to link to you. Let us know!
