Counting and recruiting

June 5, 2012

By Pat Orr

If you’re reading this and haven’t cast your absentee ballot yet, it probably won’t affect the total. Better to go down now and vote in person and toss the absentee. While though the losers and “top twos” are being anointed from the primary today, the fact is the count will go on for several days and if past is prolog there could be changes in the close contests. To no one’s surprise, President Food Stamp will win California by a wide margin.

Ladies in red hats

May 29, 2012

Sad and somber. Those were the words Virgie Pugh used to describe a lady in her late 40s who visited her Red Hat Society ladies group, a few years ago.

“After a few visits, she just blossomed and came alive,” said Pugh, queen of the “Fun and Frisky Hattitude” group. “I never thought I would ever see her smile. At her funeral, she wore her red hat and purple dress. She told us that our group taught her how to live before she died.”

Like a group of excited children at Christmas, a group of firefighters from the Apple Valley Fire Protection District gathered around two brand new fire engines.

“They’re twins — I can’t even tell them apart,” said District Fire Chief Art Bishop, as he showed off the engines that were delivered at the beginning of May and will service the area in June. “These were built from scratch and according to our specifications.”

Letter to the editor: On the Sitting Bull tract controversy

May 29, 2012

I am a resident of Apple Valley and live about 2 1/2 miles from this site. I do try to attend the Council meetings. I was troubled by the comments Council members Curt Emick and Ginger Coleman made about this zone change.

1) Councilman Emick asked to revisit the Sitting Bull Road zoning issue on behalf of the Skyline Ranch citizens. This was after he, at the previous meeting, voted not to change the zoning. There are more than 1,000 signatures on a petition that was circulated in the Skyline Ranch area to keep the zoning as is. There wasn’t any petition to change the zoning.
