On Saturday, October 19 there was a Tire Collection in Lucerne Valley Market & Hardware’s dirt area to the north. We collected almost 8 large bins full of tires -- 2000 tires! Many people collected tires that were dumped in the far corners of Lucerne Valley. THANK YOU! Some of your neighbors who volunteered to help put tires in bins were Linda Gommel and Korin Williams from the store, Robert John Erwin, Jan Morosco and Charles Leibrick. Steve Bradshaw of Burrtec was super and arranged to give us 3 bins to fill again and again.

Lucerne Valley Unified School District schools were closed on Monday due to severe winds that felled large trees, created a general mess and posed a possible hazard to children and district staff.

According to Superintendent Suzette Davis, student safety was the number one concern.

If weather permitted, schools were expected to be open the remainder of the week.
