Haprov, who has been the editor of the Hesperia Star and Apple Valley Review weekly newspapers since 2009, officially left his position on Friday to take a job in the personnel services department of the Victor Elementary School District.

While Haprov admits he is going to miss the newspaper business greatly, he said he is looking forward to all the new opportunities that lie ahead.

Nearly nine years ago, Angie Callahan offered me a position designing graphics for the Daily Press.

APPLE VALLEY — Dancing and laughter brought people together on a warm Thursday night at Civic Center Plaza where families and friends were given a little taste of the ‘60s during the Town’s weekly Sunset Concert Series.

Stone Soul, a Motown cover group, performed in front of hundreds of energetic people, who were settled in on the lawn for a night full of classic Motown music.

Though it wasn’t the band’s first rodeo, so to speak.
