A recent article in the Lucerne Valley Leader erroneously identified Billy Wessell as the Lucerne Valley Unified School District's Business Service Director, however, this was changed at the June 11th Board Meeting to Chief Business Official.  Also, Wessell graduated with the 2002 class of LVHS not 2004 as stated in the article. The Leader apologizes for the errors.

Last week the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) and the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) held public meetings in Barstow, Lucerne Valley, Hesperia, and Apple Valley, called scoping meetings to take public input. The CPUC asked us to keep our input related to potential adverse environmental effects that might be caused by the permitting and construction of Southern California Edison's (SCE) proposed Coolwater-Lugo Transmission Project (CLTP). I've been told that we only have until Sept. 3 to submit input at this stage of the game.
