SAN BERNARDINO • The San Bernardino County Planning Commission will consider a 35-acre photovoltaic generating facility proposal during its meeting Thursday, Dec. 4.
The applicant, sPower, is requesting a conditional use permit to establish a 3 megawatt solar facility on a parcel east of Bowman Trail, south of Herdmans Road, north of Summers Road, and west of Sunny Vista Road.
Public comments will be taken during the public hearing, which is expected to last about an hour. County staff member Tracy Creason will present the Bowman Solar Project proposal specifics.

The regional High Desert Corridor proposal is designed to improve travel safety and connect areas of the Antelope Valley with the Victor Valley.
The proposed main corridor for the HDC connects SR-14 and the Palmdale Transportation Center in Los Angeles County with US-395, I-15, Bear Valley Road and State Route 18 (a.k.a. Bear Valley Cutoff) in San Bernardino County.

The winner of this challenge would walk away with a sweet payoff: two tasty homemade pies.
But the handsome, strong men from Fire Station 8 were up against formidable challengers: the affectionately known “old wrinklies” from the nearby Senior Center.

But it was closer than it sounds.
“Every game has come down to one or two balls,” said organizer Jo Richards.

Barbosa and other local artists featured their works at the annual event organized by Freda Leibrick. Also participating was Evelyn Delight-Carpenter, 89, a nationally known artist who honed her skills at the renowned Otis College of Art and Design. Peter Day / The Leader
