Last week I had the pleasure of accompanying my friend Bill McDaniel to Sacramento where he was honored as our 33rd Assembly District’s Veteran of the Year. Accompanied by our Assemblyman Jay Obernolte, R-Hesperia, we attended a luncheon with about 70 or so other Assemblymembers, their honorees, family and friends.

What a remarkable group of patriots gathered in one room.

This annual event is sponsored by a number of veterans organizations and private donors and happens right before the Fourth of July each year.

The controversy over the upcoming “Hash Festival” at the High Desert Event Center is a perfect microcosm of the changes taking place in our society today.

A few people, who are sticking by their moral principles, are taking action to protest the “marijuanization” of the Victor Valley.

From StatePoint

Many college-bound students and their families underestimate the cost of college. Indeed, 31 percent of students who left school without completing a degree reported they did so due to financial reasons, according to recent National Center for Education statistics.

Beyond rising tuition rates, there are many expenses to consider — among them, books, class materials, room and board, cell phone plans and incidentals.
