Anyone who has driven on Highway 18 east from Apple Valley has seen it: A ramshackled outbuilding covered in graffiti on the south side of the highway near Deadman's Point.

Ever wondered what it looks like inside? Recently Leader senior reporter Peter Day decided to stop and take a look.

Armed with his cellphone camera, Day peered inside and snapped a few quick pics. What his camera lens saw was busted out windows, broken drywall, lots of dirt — and graffiti. Behind the building is a lone brown couch waiting patiently for company.

About 50 of Scriven's supporters helped launch his campaign with a traditional St. Patrick's Day dinner at the Senior Center last Thursday night. Lucerne Valley Chamber President Woody Hart, who is a former honorary mayor himself, and a small crew of cooking volunteers, prepared the meal of corned beef, cabbage and potatoes.

"This was our first one," Scrivens said. "We're going to start rolling now."
