26 seniors celebrate graduation

For the Apple Valley Review

It’s common to hear high school graduation speeches discuss future chances to experience and overcome great challenges in life, encouraging students that with hard work and perseverance they will succeed. It isn’t often, however, that an entire graduating class has already had the opportunity of living this out, firsthand. Each of the students in Apple Valley Christian School’s Class of 2014 has overcome a great variety of challenges, not only surviving, but going above and beyond expectations.

Just a bunch of hocus pocus?

Inspired by a vision to accomplish something extraordinary, the Apple Valley-based Sunset Hills Children’s Foundation makes it possible for young adults who have suffered a tragedy (like the loss of a parent) to pursue their educational dreams. Since its inception in 2007, the non-profit organization has presented eight local high school students with college scholarships worth $20,000.

If you’re tired of being bombarded with fancy brochures and radio commercials from dozens of candidates, the end is near. After Tuesday, each race will be pared down to two competitors. Some non-partisan races will be won outright if a candidate garners 51 percent of the vote.

Apple Valley Review

Hands down, variety is at the core of The Educators success, according to the High Desert band’s co-founder and lead guitarist, Dave Spinka. For the past decade, the quartet has been in high demand at local venues for its vast repertoire of songs that span the 1950s to the present.

Spinka says while most groups can play between 30 and 40 songs, The Educators know over 150 and are learning more every day.

Breathe. Breathe deeply. There’s no time like the present to slow down and treat yourself to a little pampering. A massage or facial might be nice, or perhaps a skin treatment like pixel skin resurfacing.
