This past spring, the Leader changed its policy on publishing names along with booking information obtained from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s office.
The change was made after careful thought, and for a number of weeks we stopped publishing names of Lucerne Valley residents who had been arrested.
But we heard from our readers loud and clear: Publish the names, they urged.
“I want to know who is causing trouble,” one woman told me.
As many already know, on July 31, I hosted a talent show at Crossroads Chapel. The event was an amazing success, and everyone had a good time. We sold popcorn, hotdogs, root beer floats and coffee to both participants and viewers alike. We had singing, dancing, art presentations, baton twirling, music, and more, with participants ranging from four to eighteen. I had an amazing time as well, and enjoyed watching everyone go up with a smile, and finish with a smile.

I am going to take a break from my regular bible teaching column this week and become a bit personal.
I’ve been in the ministry for over 25 years and I’ve been a member of IFCA for most of those years. IFCA International is a Fellowship of churches and Christian workers committed to biblical ministry. If you will, allow me to explain how I came to learn of this great fellowship and the reason for this week’s column.

A Lucerne Valley teenager is going on a cross-country summer trip — on a freestyle scooter.
Seth Groce, 19, and his 20-year-old friend Adam Amick, both professional freestyle scooter riders, will leave from Oceanside on Aug. 3. Five weeks later, the two are hoping to arrive in New York City.
The duo will travel a route used by “Race Across America” during bicycle treks.

SAN BERNARDINO • The San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors last week approved the appointments to the new Regional Municipal Advisory Council created last month to serve the Lucerne and Johnson valleys.
The appointments were made by Third District Supervisor James Ramos.
This MAC will consist of seven members: Lorane Abercrombie (Seat 1), Jean Fuqua (Seat 2), Jean Magee (Seat 3), Betty Munson (Seat 4), Roger Peterson (Seat 5), Richard Selby (Seat 6) and Joanna Wright (Seat 7).
The paintings of Eve Delight have been shown in galleries around the world. Some even were purchased by the late, famous actor Vincent Price (Price is the voice in Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” song). Los Angeles County offered a reward for a painting apparently taken by an admiring thief from the county’s gallery at Los Angeles City Hall.
