LUCERNE VALLEY — It started with one of the most well attended fireworks events in memory and two days later concluded with a spirited parade down Highway 18 and Old Woman Springs Road.
Lucerne Valley's Independence Day events are now part of the town's legacy of honoring our country and thanking those who paid the price for our freedom.
Woody Hart, president of the Lucerne Valley Chamber of Commerce, recently announced that the Chamber will be holding Frontier Days this fall.
Scheduled for Oct. 15, the event will be held at Lazy Lizard Ranch, Lazy Lizard Ranch, 35535 Highway 18. The event beckons Lucerne Valley's early days. There will be a chili cook off, horseshoe contest and more.
Applications for Frontier Days booths currently available at the Lucerne Valley Chamber of Commerce office. Booth cost: $30 for 10x10 booths. All booths spaces will be assigned in order received, first come, first served.

1. Cash’d Out at The Cave — Over the past couple of decades, tribute bands have become big business in the world of concert promotion. And, not surprisingly, the more popular ones are the acts that are most authentic. Such is the case with Cash’d Out (Douglas Benson vocals, Kevin Manuel guitar, George Bernardo drums, and Stephen Rey bass), a San Diego based band, that channels Johnny Cash in about as close a manner to the real thing as it gets.
When: Saturday; 6:30 to 11 p.m.

Some changes in training plans were announced at our meeting with representatives from the Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center, which drew an estimated 25-30 people to the JV Community Center in late June.
A video demonstrated the levels of intense training the Base at Twentynine Palms handles in its 1,100 square miles of varied desert terrain. Each year an average of 35,000 Marines and sailors experience realistic action before deployment "in an arena where failure is never an option," as one of the brochures states.
