Sometimes John Buchanan must feel like the loneliest man in Lucerne Valley.
A slender cowboy with a full moustache drooping to his chin, long hair and a western hat sitting within arm’s reach on the dais, Buchanan looks like he’s ready to rope a steer or brand a calf.

As has become an annual ritual, Master Ruben Gonzalez and a handful of workers get together to assemble an assortment of shiny trophies that will be awarded at his annual karate tournament on Saturday.
Earlier this week, Gonzalez received assistance from Mary Manigault and her daughter Sheena Manigault, whose 5-year-old daughter Alexandria will perform a demonstration at the event.
“I appreciate the volunteers who are here for the community,” Gonzalez said.
The Grand Champion will receive $100.
