Employees at the Lucerne Valley Market and Hardware Store honored the memory of the late Ernie Gommel, who would have turned 92 last week, by wearing “Have a Peachy Keen Day” buttons. The phrase was commonly used by the Lucerne Valley icon. The buttons were provided by Johna Freeman, the Newspapers in Education coordinator for the Daily Press and Lucerne Valley Leader and a resident of Lucerne Valley.

By Betty Munson

Editor’s Note: Johnson Valley resident Betty Munson is a member of the newly formed Lucerne Valley-Johnson Valley Municipal Advisory Council. Not only is Munson’s column informative for her community, but she touches on topics of interest in Lucerne Valley as well.

SoCal Edison wants $10 more a month from your wallet, $120 yearly. From the 880 customers between Lucerne Valley and Yucca Valley this totals $105,800 — from just this small population. Imagine what they anticipate collecting from every customer.

Religion: Is there a right day for worship?

September 3, 2013

By Steve Colangelo

Some of my friends have told me that I am wrong for worshipping on Sunday; I am supposed to worship on Saturday because it’s the Sabbath. Who is right? I appreciate your sensitivity in wanting to honor God through obedience to His Law, but to answer this question we must look at the Sabbath in the context in which it was given and then ask if it is applicable today.

The Bible indicates that the Sabbath regulations are no longer binding to the Christian today. Here is a short historical perspective.

It's not a mirage ... it's rain

A summer storm swept through the area earlier this week, sending down quarter-sized raindrops, temporarily flooding a stretch of Highway 18 and and prompting ooh’s and aah’s from water-needy desert dwellers. After the storm moved past Lucerne Valley, it made its presence felt in Apple Valley, Hesperia and beyond. An ominous funnel cloud was spotted and photographed in El Mirage. Above, drivers leave Lucerne Valley and drive past the dry lake, which was suddenly very, very wet.

The Lucerne Valley Youth Project is doing its share to help needy students get supplies for school.

Organizer Pam Hardwick hopes to prepare more than 100 back-to-school care kits for local students.

Hardwick said the group needs back packs, schools supplies, socks, gloves, beanies and hygiene supplies.
