August 12, 2014

It’s the middle of August. Let’s repeat that, it’s the middle of August!

OK, now that I have that off my chest, I can’t believe that 2014 is more than half over and Lucerne Valley students are already going back to school. But it is and they are.

To be specific, school starts on August 18. Are you ready?

Judging from the comments by Supt. Suzette Davis and Board President Jim Harvey (see page 1), the 2014-15 school year could be a very good year indeed.

The pricing structure for San Bernardino County’s Community Ambulance Membership Plan has changed.
Instead of multi-tiered pricing, all households that subscribe will pay a flat $65.

“For an entire household the county program is a big bang for the buck,” Capt. Ben Van Wyk said during last month’s regular meeting of the Lucerne Valley-Johnson Valley Municipal Advisory Council.

Van Wyk said the change was made due to a change in the county’s billing structure.
