Word of that dire prospect came during last Thursday's meeting of the Lucerne Valley-Johnson Valley Municipal Advisory Council at the Community Center. Scott Fritz, a County Service Area 29 employee who maintains the area's translator system explained that a recent Federal Communications Commission action is forcing Lucerne Valley and other TV translator providers to move their channels from UHF to VHF.

Review by the Movie Lady

Awful synopsis:

• Society is fearing there should be no Superman because of his alien like actions and the collateral damage in human lives that occurs when he is fighting some bad guy.

• A gnarly malcontented Batman, along with an equally malcontented butler Alfred, makes it their mission to take Superman down.

• Love sick Clark Kent, a.k.a. Superman, is obsessed with Lois Lane and the fact that Batman's actions are reckless so he’s making it his mission to take down Batman.
