LUCERNE VALLEY • The main road block to Municipal Advisory Council’s road improvement wishlist is a big one: There is little funding for Lucerne Valley area road projects.

“No funding is currently available,” said a county transportation representative, who was a guest speaker at the Lucerne Valley-Johnson Valley Muncipal Advisory Council meeting last Thursday at the Senior Center. The speaker was joined by Brud Hancock, district supervisor for Yard 10 in 29 Palms.

Lucerne Valley Community Church offered its annual concert featuring the Regents vocal group. Perhaps the largest number of churchgoers came together at St. Paul Catholic Church.
