LUCERNE VALLEY • Another week, another impressive performance for the Lucerne Valley Mustangs football team.
The Immanuel Christian Crusaders were the latest team to fall as the Mustangs posted their first shutout of the season in cruising to a 72-0 victory at Peavy Field Friday night.
I know that our U.S Postal Service is having a hard time with money like everyone else, but have you noticed the state of our U.S. Post Office in Lucerne Valley?
Grass that hasn’t been mowed, which is approximately a foot high, handrails that are bent. There are a lot of messy places in Lucerne Valley, but our post office? Shame.
SCHOOL REPORT: Chris Campos, the Associated Student Body president for Lucerne Valley High School, presented the upcoming school events during the recent board of trustees meeting held at Lucerne Valley Elementary School. Campos, a senior, also is a defensive lineman for the Mustangs’ football team. On the opponent’s second play from scrimmage last Friday, Campos busted into the Immanuel Christian backfield bringing down the quarterback in the end zone for a safety as Lucerne Valley crushed their opponents 72-0.

It is an undeniable fact the Satan exists. He is specifically mentioned in seven Old Testament books and by every New Testament writer. Christ Himself teaches that Satan is a real in Matthew 13:39 and Luke 10:18 as well as other passages. Satan possesses a vast intellect (2 Cor. 11:3), has emotions and a will (Rev. 12:17; II Tim. 2:26). He is known by many names, such as Devil, Lucifer, Beelzebub, Belial, the Evil one, the Tempter, Accuser, Ruler of this Age and Prince of the Power of the Air.

Eller’s “Lucerne Valley Elementary School Plan to Improve” presentation came a month after the school’s Academic Performance Index results revealed a 43-point API decline from the previous year.
