Another victory, another 70-plus points for Mustangs

October 1, 2013

LUCERNE VALLEY • The weather may be starting to cool in the Southern California desert but the Lucerne Valley Mustangs football team continues to heat up.

This past Friday night, the Public Safety Academy High School Phoenix felt that heat as the Mustangs romped their way to a 74-8 victory, pushing their record to 5 wins and 0 losses and clinching their second consecutive winning regular season. And it seems as if the community is finally starting to take notice of their home town team as a larger crowd was on hand to watch Lucerne Valley get off to yet another quick start.

Dear Editor:
This is in response to the letter titled, “Post Office Concerns,” published on Sept. 25, 2013. On behalf of the Lucerne Valley Post Office and the U.S. Postal Service, I want to apologize to our customers for the issues raised in the letter. The lawn at the Post Office has been mowed, and we are in the process of securing a new landscaper. Regarding the broken handrail, there was a bit of delay in getting it repaired but that has been taken care of as well.

Williams division of Pfizer’s Lucerne Valley plant began construction on a unique lime kiln in a move to expand operations from the 12-ton daily process that has made them the largest limestone producer on the West Coast. Limestone is quarried from a location on the northern slopes of the San Bernardino mountains in Furnace Canyon.
• Shopping: Watermelons grown on Morse Ranch were 3 cents per pound at Jones Store.
