Remembering Roy: Delivering Roy’s paper

November 1, 2011

I was in the eighth grade and new to the area around 1983. Out of just pure luck I landed one of the best Daily Press paper routes in the High Desert. The boy I replaced told me I had Roy Rogers and Dale Evans were on my route. During my training phase, that lasted about two days, he told me as much history as he could about Roy and his living legacy.
Because I was young and really just interested in making money I ignored much of what he said. That was until I met Roy Rogers for the first time.


Around Town: Another plug for the plug

November 1, 2011

Let’s all go out, link hands, sing a chorus or two of “Happy Trails to You” and help give that old plug Trigger a home this Saturday. Son Dusty and his band The High Riders will be a singing and a whooping it up at Civic Center Park on Saturday for Roy Rogers’ 100th birthday celebration. We need to keep alive that link to Apple Valley’s past with Roy and Dale. That family-oriented western work ethic is what the town built its image upon.

A.V. woman on 'Let's Make a Deal' Friday

October 25, 2011

By Rene De La Cruz

Amber Contratto stood on the “Let’s Make a Deal!” television stage, trying to decide between $693 in cash or the prize behind curtain No. 1.

“I was shaking because I was so nervous and the audience was screaming,” Contratto, 24, said. “It was crazy, but I had to make a decision.”

Dressed in a hot pink skirt and a lime green shirt that read “Trouble Maker,” Contratto chose the curtain.
