The Apple Valley Golf Course restaurant is almost ready for prime time.

On Friday, they plan to hold a special introductory Valentine’s dinner from 4 to 9 p.m. They say “walk-ins are welcome” but I would give them a call because they already have significant reservations for that night.

I have a friend who is incensed that Republicans aren’t smart enough to sit together and choose one single candidate in each race to support. She is not happy that there are now four GOP’ers trying to win Tim Donnelly’s 33rd Assembly seat.
