Remembering Dale: Calling her a friend

March 6, 2012

By Marilyn Pierson

Let me introduce who we are and how we became involved with Happy Trails Children’s Foundation.

We’re known to most of the Western community as “Slick and Sidekick” — or Curt and Marilyn Pierson. It all started in 1998. For several years we’d been going to celebrity collector shows and became part of the crew for “Jeff’s Star Talk.” His show interviewed Roy and Dale at their Victorville museum, and we got our photos with them. We soon became acquainted with other celebrities.

Around Town: He’s back

March 6, 2012

By Pat Orr

We have a new entry into the 1st District Supervisor sweepstakes: former assemblyman Anthony Adams.

You may recall Adams turned his back on his “no tax” Republican value system which caused a huge uproar, a recall campaign and his withdrawal from any re-election bid. Now, he’s back as a “No Party Affiliation” candidate for Supervisor. It should be easier to run and govern when you have no set principles — Democrat, Green, Libertarian or Republican — to bog you down.


My Turn: Remembering Davy Jones

March 6, 2012


I am a Monkees fan. 

There, I’ve said it — a shocking confession for a full-grown man. Now I understand that “The Monkees” was a TV show, with actors hired to portray a rock and roll band. They weren’t even allowed to play their own instruments on their first two albums. (Why should they be? I doubt anyone would have trusted Marcus Welby with a scalpel.)

Sue Sappok’s ‘Wildfire Ranch’ growing at steady pace

By Rene De La Cruz

Standing at attention, with their ears raised and eyes focused on every human movement, the three pregnant mares knew that it was feeding time at the Wildfire Ranch in Apple Valley.

“This is the maternity ward and these three are due to foaled in March and April,” said Sue Sappok, owner of the two-and-a-half acre horse ranch that is currently in the process of moving to a larger facility near Lucerne Valley.
