Chart Your Way to the Treasures of Success: On Nov. 7, the Lucerne Valley FFA program took 18 students to the High Desert Section Leadership Conference in Valyermo. They interacted with other chapters, participated in games led by the section officers, and hiked up the mountain to learn how to repel off of a boulder and do a ropes course. “We played many games, made many new friends, and overall had a great, memorable time,” said FFA Chapter reporter Keagan Weis. “We’re excited to see what next year has in store for us!”
While there was no official town-wide event to honor our veterans, the community showed its respect and honor for the men, woman and canines that serve and protect our freedom. A group of patriots (including local resident Pam Hardwick) waved the U.S. flag at the Dale Evans freeway overpass. John Miller and his family put up flags along the drive. And loved ones remembered those who have served and passed away at the cemetery.

A group of Lucerne Valley Elementary School students were taught a potentially life-saving lesson last week. Two representatives of the non-profit SafeMoves organization visited the school to teach traffic safety. Students learned to signal as they ride their bicycles and to follow bicycle safety rules. Several got to try their skills while riding a course adjacent to LVES classrooms.
I was chatting with Jerry Bryant, owner of the Lazy Lizard Ranch, last Saturday at the Cadillac Antiques parking lot sale. It turns out that Jerry has known the Muldoons, who own the new business, for decades. Jerry, the Muldoons and other friends envision great things for that part of Highway 18. They see several new businesses popping up and creating a healthy, vibrant synergy. Sounds like a great vision.
Last weekend I tried Holly Sosa’s Mississippi Roast crockpot recipe. Awesome! The next day I had tasty meat to make shredded beef tacos.

Some people called him “Bear”, I guess, but everyone around here called him just Chow Chow. He appeared several years ago (3 or 4?), wandering around the parking lot, as do a number of stray dogs periodically.
