Hello Lucerne Valley! Want to update you on the training camp changes, review some of the really important rules and tell you about a few protocol procedures you may not be aware of. But first, I want to tell you of a really soft hearted fan of the worm racing world.

Longtime Lucerne Valley resident Bruce Waterman has opened a thrift store, aptly named Waterman Thrift Store, in Apple Valley. The store carries new and used clothing, DVDs, cassette tapes, CDs and LPs, scooters and more.
The store is located next to Lola’s, which is a great, off-the-beaten-path Mexican restaurants in the Victor Valley. So patrons can make a lunch date and check out the thrift store and then grab a bite.
What appears to be a Mohave Shovel-nosed Snake (Chionactis occipitalis) slithers across a dirt area between the Lucerne Valley Market and Pioneer Park. A non-venemous reptile, about 15 minutes later the photographer and his dog came upon a decidedly angry Mojave Green rattlesnake.

I know it’s easy to go down and buy a can of frosting at The Market, but we live smack dab in the middle of the High Desert, and around these parts we try to make our own stuff from scratch.
Between my own two children and my three step-children, we have a lot of birthdays; therefore a lot of cake; therefore a lot of frosting. This cream cheese frosting recipe is a great base frosting for any cake. It’s versatile (I’ll share a few of my favorite variations with you too!) and makes more than enough for double layers.

How did Jesus teach people about His resurrection? Did He just “show up alive?” Note the following, based on Luke 24:13-36, on the Road to Emmaeus.
Narrator: “That very day two of them were going to a village named Emmaus, about seven miles from Jerusalem…Jesus himself drew near and went with them. But their eyes were kept from recognizing him.” (This was an intentional meeting, as with Mary in John 20:14-18.)

For 23 years, Sharon Cross was entrusted with taking Lucerne Valley students to and from school. Now her biggest responsibility is managing her vacations.
She and one of her daughters, Janette, recently returned from one of her first post-retirement treks, a brief cruise to Ensenada. Later this year, she will go with a vacation club to the Lawrence Welk Resort near San Diego. Cross is especially looking forward to a trip to the Panama Canal next year.
