We prorate your rent by the day after the first 28-day billing cycle, so you don't have to pay for a full month when you only have your mobile containers and offices for a few days.

While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don't have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don't know who's actually building it.

Folks across Southern California poured into bars, restaurants, stadiums and many varieties of watch parties on Friday, Nov. 25, as the plucky young American underdogs battled to a scoreless tie with seasoned Britain, long considered perennial football royalty.

Fans walked away from game neither triumphant nor defeated, as 94-plus incredibly tense minutes of play concluded in the 0-0 outcome. The deadlock kept the U.S. alive and made the “what’s next” scenario quite clear — beat Iran or go home.

“The English team is so skilled, so accomplished that the fact that we were able to come away with clean sheet and we didn’t give up the ball against one of the best teams in the world is a huge accomplishment,” said U.S. soccer super fan Alexis Apila of Torrance, who watched live from the Hermosa Beach Plaza watch party. “So that’s the reason I feel happy; that’s the reason I feel proud.”

The World Cup match kicked off at 11 a.m. Los Angeles time, which over at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, Qatar meant a late night 10 p.m. start for the players. The game was predicted to be an uphill – but not impossible – battle for the US team.

England is currently fifth in the rankings compiled by FIFA, soccer’s international governing body, while the U.S. is ranked 16th. The Three Lions confidently cruised into the game following Monday’s 6-2 victory over Iran, while the US Men’s Team arrived on the back of a 1-1 tie against Wales, also on Monday.

With Southland residents eager to see the US Men’s Team defy the odds, watch parties emerged aplenty from South Bay pubs, to the sports bars of Long Beach, to the breweries of San Gabriel Valley to a soccer stadium in Orange County.

In true Southland fashion, one of the largest of the events was hosted steps from the sand as the LA Galaxy partnered with the City of Hermosa Beach to bring a giant television screen to Hermosa Beach’s Pier Plaza.

Also among the viewing-party sites around Southern California:

–The Orange County Soccer Club hosted a major bash at Championship Soccer Stadium at Irvine’s Great Park;

–The 4th & Mill bar and grill in Ranch Cucamonga drew a crowded house.

–Jam-packed Long Beach’s Legends, a stalwart sports bar on Belmont Shore’s Second Street had to turn away eager fans; and

–Scores of others celebrations around the region.

The red-white-and-blue crowd at Hermosa Beach numbered in the hundreds and remained glued to the screen for the entire game, “ooohing” at each close call and “aaahing” at every skillful save.

“Soccer is one of the most up and coming sports in this country and you can see this today in Hermosa; people are really coming out, from families with little ones to older age groups,” said Gabriel Osollo, manager of community relations and the LA Galaxy Foundation, gesturing to the massive crowd.

Over at the Lucky Baldwin’s watch party in Pasadena, pub regular and longtime US soccer fan Salvador Reyes noted both the progress of the U.S. skillset and the interest of American fans in the game.

“Back then this was out-the-door Brits, this was all Brits and Scots singing, and now you hear and see a lot of U.S. supporters,” he said of the fan interest, in particular at the popular Pasadena pub. “Even some of the songs, they change the lyrics to U.S. words. For me, that’s the beautiful part of it.”

The fan interest has developed, “leaps and bounds,” in tandem with the skill of American players, men and women, he said.“This is a big game, because England is the gateway for the U.S.,” he said.

Die-hard US Soccer fan Bill Pearson of Torrance, watching the game live from the Hermosa Beach Plaza, said the crowd was much larger than in 2014, the last time plaza hosted watch parties for the World Cup.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve been here to watch the match and it’s great to see it (fandom) has grown so much more,” he said. “The U.S. is super competitive and we’re knocking at the door to be in the top 10. This is the U.S. Men’s, but the juniors and the kids that are coming to us are phenomenal.”

The crowds were also massive over in Long Beach where the line to enter Legends Sports Bar stretched down the block and maximum capacity was reached by 11:08 a.m.

Inside fans were packed in at tables and at elbows length anywhere they could stand with a view of the game and drinks in their hands.

Ringing a cowbell and wearing a headband with U.S. flags, Lesley Garcia, 39, from Downey, was rooting for Team USA with her friends.

Garcia arrived at 7:30 a.m. to get into Legends and expected it to be as packed with U.S.A fans as it was. “You want to be here because you feel the vibrations, and you feel the euphoria from everybody,” Garcia said. “You just have to experience it. It’s not the same at home at all, and it’s the closest that you’ll get to being at a game.”

Will Shaw, manager at Legends, said he expected the mammoth turnout. Shaw said Legends closed their doors early when reaching capacity to ensure everyone’s safety inside. “The World Cup – especially U.S.A games – is busier then any Super Bowl and I have worked here for a better part of a decade,” Shaw said. “This is the busiest I have ever seen it in a long time.”

The spirit of soccer was also strong in the Inland Empire, where fans packed into Rancho Cucamonga sports bar 4th and Mill.

Guests as young as 3 were toddled in with their families to cheer the Americans.

“We’ve been playing since we were little and we’ve been coaching since we were 18,” said Therese Hinz, “ Now we are getting the kids involved so yeah big soccer family.”

Hinz and husband Larry Hinz said they are big soccer fans and with their three kids — Evie (8), Jack (7) and Gwen (3) — were rooting for the USA to win the game.

Evie and Jack both play soccer and have big dreams to keep at and maybe even reach the World Cup themselves.

The L.A. Galaxy Major League Soccer Team, which hosted the Hermosa party, is already hard at work fostering the next generation of star U.S. soccer players through their training academy at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson.

One of their prodigies – Haji Wright – is playing as a forward on the U.S. team. He trained with the Galaxy from 2012 to 2015 before signing with the New York Cosmos. The US Men’s Team also boasts another Angeleno in Midfielder Cristian Roldan, who is an alumnus of El Rancho High School in Pico Rivera.

“To see someone from the Academy and actually make it in the biggest stage in the world is amazing,” said Osollo. “That’s great for our brand to know that if you come through our academy sky’s the limit… and it’s great for the state and the country.”

Following the tie game, fans are now hungry to see the outcome of the USMT’s game against Iran on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

The U.S team is currently in precarious, but not perilous, position.

In order advance to the single-elimination rounds of the World Cup, they must win against Iran on Tuesday at 11 a.m. Pacific Time. A tie or loss to Iran means they will not end up in the top two of their four team group and, as a result, will have to kiss goodbye to their World Cup dreams for another four years.

Galaxy President Chris Klein doesn’t think that’s going to happen.

“We should win. We’re a better team,” he said. “Iran is certainly a good team and they showed today that they’re resilient and can also be good on the day, but we have more quality and we have more power and experience.”

Staff writers Jordan Darling, Ryan Carter and Christina Merino, as well as City News Service, contributed to this report.

San Diego Section gets three home games and three away game for first round of state football playoffs

Lincoln has 11 wins this season.

The Hornets are football champions of the uber-competitive Western League and beat top-seeded Carlsbad to win the San Diego Section Open Division championship.

Lincoln’s reward?

A first-round road game Friday in the Southern California Regionals at 10-4 Chatsworth Sierra Canyon — a 3-hour, 150-mile bus ride.

Sierra Canyon beat Inglewood for the Southern Section Division II championship.

But why is a one-loss Lincoln team that’s ranked No. 9 in the state by MaxPreps being forced to travel to a four-loss team ranked No. 10?

One game.

Lincoln’s only loss is 14-7 to a 3-8 Bishop Alemany team in Week 2.

Sierra Canyon beat Alemany 42-0.

“It’s funny to say the least,” said Lincoln coach David Dunn. “Sierra Canyon has four losses — all to quality teams (JSerra, Oaks Christian, Mission Viejo and Bishop Amat), but none are still playing.

“But our lone loss comes back to bite us. I’m not happy with the decision. I don’t like giving up the home-field advantage. We’re going to have to fundraise to hire charter buses.

“Our motto all season is ‘Nothing comes easy.’ This is just another challenge.”

All six San Diego Section division winners advanced to the SoCal Regionals with the section getting five Friday games, one Saturday, three on the road and three at home.

<bullet><TH>Mater Dei Catholic (10-4), the Division I champion and ranked No. 42 in the state, travels to No. 58 Downey (12-2), the Southern Section Division 4 champion Friday.

“In the last 24 hours, my staff has had us playing every school in Southern California,” said Mater Dei Catholic coach John Joyner. “We don’t know a whole lot about Downey, so we’ll call around and see what we can find. It’s a fun time of year. I’m a creature of habit, so I like playing on Friday night. Downey isn’t a bad trip (about 120 miles). We’ll leave early, eat and go play football. It’s survive-and-advance time now.”

<bullet><TH>Granite Hills (11-2), the Division II champion and ranked No. 64, hosts No. 65 Rancho Cucamonga Etiwanda (9-5), the Southern Section Division 5 winner on Saturday.

“I heard we might be traveling to Fresno, so getting a home game is a huge bonus,” said Granite Hills coach Kellan Cobbs. “We came out of our game Saturday pretty healthy. Normally, I like playing Friday, but since we played Saturday this week, a Saturday game gives us extra time to regroup. I’m just excited to still be playing.”

<bullet><TH>University City (11-2), the Division III champion and ranked No. 125, travels to No. 102 San Jacinto (12-2) Friday.

<bullet><TH>Palo Verde Valley (13-1), the Division IV champion and ranked No. 271, hosts No. 281 Pasadena Muir (8-6) on Friday.

<bullet><TH>Classical Academy (10-3), the Division V champion and ranked No. 419, hosts No. 429 Lancaster (9-5) Friday at Del Norte High.

“The State CIF gave us an hour to find a site,” said Classical Academy coach Josiah Cruz of a school that doesn’t have a home field. “We certainly didn’t want to take a 3-hour bus ride. Let’s make them come to us.”

At an organizational meeting last week, San Diego Section Commissioner Joe Heinz warned Classical Academy and Crawford that there was a good chance the winner of the Division V game would play Lancaster and the game would probably be on the road.

“We were a little surprised we got a home game,” said Cruz, “but Del Norte has been our site most of the season. They’ve been great to us. We have a special group of seniors. I’m so glad they get to play another game at home.”

Rancho Cucamonga and SBCTA Approve Sale of Property for Development of Brightline West Full-Service Transit Station at Cucamonga Station

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The City of Rancho Cucamonga City Council and the ...

RANCHO CUCAMONGA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The City of Rancho Cucamonga City Council and the San Bernardino County Transportation Authority (SBCTA) Board of Directors have approved the first step of the sale of a five-acre portion of the jointly owned property at Cucamonga Station to Brightline West. The agreement clears the path for Brightline West to develop the property at the northwest corner of Milliken Avenue and Azusa Court, and build the first high-speed rail station in the Inland Empire connecting Rancho Cucamonga, the High Desert, and Las Vegas. Brightline is the only private provider of modern, eco-friendly intercity rail service in America. The company currently operates between Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and West Palm Beach in Florida and is scheduled to complete construction to the Orlando International Airport by the end of 2022.

“Cucamonga Station will serve as a global connectivity anchor within the newly branded HART District.”

“The public-private partnership between Rancho Cucamonga, SBCTA, and Brightline West will help transform the region through an exciting multi-modal transportation hub in the heart of the Inland Empire,” said City of Rancho Cucamonga Mayor Dennis Michael. “Cucamonga Station aligns with our City’s quest to anticipate and embrace the future, relentlessly pursue improvement, and promote a safe and healthy community for all.”

Cucamonga Station will go through a transformation in the coming years, making it the region’s global connectivity point and destination location for everything California has to offer. Transportation modes at Cucamonga Station will provide service through high-speed rail, the Metrolink San Bernardino Line, and Omnitrans Bus Rapid Transit and local bus service, as well as serve carpool commuters. Plans are also moving forward for a sub-terranean loop to Ontario International Airport (ONT), led by SBCTA, where passengers will be transported in just a few minutes between Cucamonga Station and airport terminals. In anticipation of deploying this service, Omnitrans has already launched ONT Connect, a regular shuttle service from Cucamonga Station to the airport that operates daily every 35-60 minutes.

“This agreement is a culmination of several years of working together with our partners and is a key milestone to bring high-speed rail to the Inland Empire,” said John Gillison, City Manager for the City of Rancho Cucamonga. “Cucamonga Station will serve as a global connectivity anchor within the newly branded HART District.”

“We are pleased to take this next important step forward in bringing enhanced transit connectivity to one of the fastest-growing population and economic centers in the country,” said Art Bishop, President of the SBCTA Board of Directors and Mayor Pro Tem of the Town of Apple Valley.

The Cucamonga Station will be strategically located within the HART District – a new transit-oriented, mixed‑use, housing, retail and commercial district that elevates the area into a walkable, culture-rich experience. Located within the area of Haven Avenue, Arrow Route, Rochester Avenue and the Transit station in Rancho Cucamonga, it will serve as a crossroads of food, travel, culture and commerce. The HART District is poised to be the next key economic catalyst in the region. To learn more, go to www.TheHartDistrict.com. The City of Rancho Cucamonga, Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau (GOCVB), Omnitrans, the Ontario International Airport, and San Bernardino County have established a joint effort for the project development and outreach programs. Additional project partners will come onboard as the project continues to move forward through the development process.

Megan Telles’ Rancho Cucamonga community helped reach her dreams

KTLA 5 reporter Megan Telles realized her reporter dreams in the Inland Empire.

A self-described “Army Brat,” she traveled the world alongside her parents and older brother. Her high school years were spent at Rancho Cucamonga’s Los Osos High School.

“My senior year I was ASB president. So, I had the opportunity to do morning announcements,” she explained. “When people got to school, they got to hear my voice on the intercom. I’d always wanted to be in television, and everyone knew I wanted to be in broadcast journalism.”

One teacher told KTLA she remembers when Megan solidified her dream while in class.

“I’ll never forget the day Megan did a presentation in front of class with her Los Osos cheer uniform on and said ‘algún día yo seré reportera,’ ‘one day I will be a reporter,'” said Julie Hartz, Spanish teacher at Los Osos. “It was just amazing to watch her journey.”

Megan’s aspirations after high school were to go to USC’s Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism. However, she didn’t get in. Instead of giving up, she pivoted.

She went to San Diego State University and had the time of her life, but she didn’t quit on her USC dreams.

“I told myself, ‘one day you’re going to transfer to USC,'” she said.

Her lucky break came when she took part in a competition held by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, aka the Oscars. They were looking for a college student correspondent and videographer to attend the ceremony.

She made it to the top 10 and to actually make it to the Oscars, she needed votes. To snag the top spot, Megan leaned on her community of Rancho Cucamonga.

“My family, who has always been supportive, called up everyone they knew,” she laughed. “The entire community rallied for me.”

Megan ended up in the top three and got a chance to go to the ceremony. When the time came, she then reapplied to USC and got in. She ended up getting her degree from the prestigious Southern California institution.

“Thank goodness for the community of Rancho Cucamonga because without them, I wouldn’t have made it to the top of this competition,” Megan reflected. “I think that’s the thing that got me into USC.”

Years later, Megan’s journalism journey brought her back to Southern California and right here to KTLA. When she got word that L.A.’s Very Own was interested in her, she couldn’t believe it. Her journey had come full circle.

“I felt like the total opposite of when I got when I got notification that I didn’t get into USC,” she explained. “When that happened, I thought my world was over. I was able to persevere through that.”

“I hope that now, I can spill that passion into my community,” she said. “Everyone should dare to live their dream because when dreams come true, you’re never working a day in your life.”

KTLA’s My Very Own Story series airs Thursdays at 8 a.m., 12 p.m., and 5 p.m.
