LUCERNE VALLEY • Four longtime residents made an emotional plea during last Wednesday’s school board meeting to change the name of the local elementary school in honor of the late Julia Bell.
Roadrunners Jo Richards, Pam Hart, along with Hart’s husband Woody and Jerry Byars, proposed renaming Lucerne Valley Elementary School to Julia Bell Elementary School.
“I would like to see her name go on the elementary school,” said Richards, “Julia made life better for all of us.”

It has a cast-iron platform with four legs, but what is it?
When we recently were offered some nice relics by donation, it seemed that we had a few items that stumped us. We scratched our heads and dug deep into our brains for some characteristics that would help us place a name to it.
Maybe you know what it is, and what it does? Let us know.
There’s lots to report out of last Wednesday’s school board meeting. The presentation by Jo Richards to change the name of the elementary school to Julia Bell Elementary took center stage (see page 1), but there were lots of other tidbits:
Larry Mayer of the Lucerne Valley CERT (Community Emergency Response Training) made a presentation on “Teen CERT,” a FEMA-sponsored program that teaches teenagers how to respond to an emergency. Mayer, a retired firefighter, said the 20-to-24-hour program is paid for by FEMA, the county and state.
