In case you haven’t noticed, this isn’t your father’s Mustangs football team.

Lucerne Valley, a week removed from their stunning road victory versus defending state champion Joshua Springs, avoided a letdown in their week three blowout win over the visiting Lutheran High School Trojans.

Commentary: The Mac is Back!

September 18, 2013

By Richard Selby

Thanks to San Bernardino County Third District Supervisor James Ramos, the Municipal Advisory Council (MAC) is back in action this coming Thursday September 19th. This time around the MAC is now what we affectionately call the “Big MAC” since it’s now what is referred to as a Regional MAC. This is because the MAC now represents Johnson Valley as well as Lucerne Valley. So, it’s now the “Lucerne Valley and Johnson Valley Municipal Advisory Council”.

Lucerne Valley remember September 11, 2001 by proudly displaying the American flag.

Along Highway 18, flags were posted to remind drivers that their freedom hasn’t come without a price.

Fire Station 8 flew the American and Californian flags at half mast to pay respect to the hundreds of firefighters who lost their lives the day two planes few into the World Trade Center towers. Lucerne Valley resident.

Pam Hardwick and several friends waved their flags on the I-15 overpass at Mojave.

Editorial: Feel your forehead: Football fever?

September 17, 2013

A doctor isn’t necessary, but symptoms of high school football fever could be beginning in Lucerne Valley. Dr. Day’s advice: head over to the Lucerne Valley High School stadium, grab a few hot dogs and Cokes, find a seat and enjoy.

The Mustangs, led by the strong arm of senior Daniel Stratton, are going gangbusters on the gridiron. They’ve demolished opponents in their first and third games of the season. During their second (an away game, by the way), the team beat the 8-man state champion squad from Joshua Springs.

The three-hour meeting, which was held in the Lucerne Valley Elementary School multi-purpose room, began with an invitation for all to participate.
