Commentary: Keeping an eye on local crime

August 7, 2013

By Peter Day

This past spring, the Leader changed its policy on publishing names along with booking information obtained from the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s office.

The change was made after careful thought, and for a number of weeks we stopped publishing names of Lucerne Valley residents who had been arrested.

But we heard from our readers loud and clear: Publish the names, they urged.

“I want to know who is causing trouble,” one woman told me.

Letter to Editor: Thank you for your help

August 7, 2013

Dear Editor,

As many already know, on July 31, I hosted a talent show at Crossroads Chapel. The event was an amazing success, and everyone had a good time. We sold popcorn, hotdogs, root beer floats and coffee to both participants and viewers alike. We had singing, dancing, art presentations, baton twirling, music, and more, with participants ranging from four to eighteen. I had an amazing time as well, and enjoyed watching everyone go up with a smile, and finish with a smile.
