APPLE VALLEY REVIEW

Each year a warrant is put out for my arrest.

I have finally gotten Apple Valley deputies to bring it to a Rotary meeting rather than my house, which scared the snot out of me last year. The Apple Valley Police Activities League, or AVPAL, has to be one of the worthiest intervention programs ever created. The idea is to provide a multi-offering program that could perhaps derail youngsters on the way to becoming inmates.

APPLE VALLEY REVIEW

Nearly 25 years ago, as a large air-conditioning unit crashed through a burning two-story building, paid-call firefighter, Barry Moler, remembered the reaction of Capt. Randy Randolph.

“I looked at Randy and asked him if we should be in here,” said Moler, 59, a retired Apple Valley Fire Protection District captain. “He calmly looked at me and told me that things were fine. He was calm under pressure and also very aggressive.”

Stop signs, speed limit changes on council agenda

April 10, 2012

The Town Council Tuesday night will discuss the addition of stop signs, and the establishment of speed zones.

After an intense evaluation by the town’s Traffic Safety Committee, the council will consider a resolution that would add two more stop signs at Kiowa and Ottawa roads, and Kamana and Kasota roads, making them four-way stop intersections.

The signs on Kiowa Road would allow vehicles traveling on Ottawa Road a safer means to cross, or to negotiate turns onto Kiowa Road, which begins to curve at the intersection.

Q & A with Virgil Barnes: Staying a steady course

April 10, 2012

Former Apple Valley Unified School District Superintendent Virgil Barnes was born in Los Angeles. When Barnes was 11, his family moved from Los Angeles to Santa Rosa, a town of 12,000 people and a wonderful place to grow up.

“While rural and agricultural, it had a ‘downtown with a courthouse square,’ and celebrated many local and cultural traditions as well as famous residents such as the horticulturist Luther Burbank and author Jack London,” Barnes said.
