LUCERNE VALLEY • Petitioners are obtaining signatures and recall signs have begun to appear as the drive to recall Lucerne Valley Unified School District governing board trustee Dawn Turnbull moves forward.

"The recall is going great," recall drive organizer Keri Gasper said last Thursday. "We have collected about more than half of the signatures we need and we still have another month to go."

The signs come courtesy of a longtime school board member recently at odds with Turnbull.
