A county ordinance allowing industrial-scale renewable energy projects would not be in Lucerne Valley’s best interest as currently drafted, according to Chuck Bell, president of the Lucerne Valley Economic Development Association.

Instead, Bell and the LVEDA board believe the county should create “renewable energy zones”and update its general plan.
"They're going to flood it with applications, and we're going to have to fight each one,” Bell said during Tuesday’s regular meeting of LVEDA at the Senior Center.

Batman & Robin, Sherlock Holmes & Dr. Watson, Starsky & Hutch, R2-D2 & C3PO, and now Stratton & Logan?

There have been some great duos in American history but, here in Lucerne Valley, Stratton & Logan, or rather “Stratton to Logan” is a line we’ve heard around these parts pretty regularly for the past few years.

Poem: 'My Story'

I was born in the Great Depression
Lived through wars and recessions
Always hoping for better tomorrows
Happier days without pain and sorrows

God has blessed my life with so much love
From family, friends and home up above
In Heaven with Jesus, there’s comfort knowing
When I leave this world, I know where I’m going
