Staffing cutbacks at the Jess Ranch fire station have some residents concerned.

Chief Art Bishop, with the Apple Valley Fire Protection District, said the group was worried that weekly medical services provided at Solera Fire Station No. 337 would be eliminated after March 10, when the 24-hour staffed fire house transitions to a five-day-a-week, eight-hour-a-day operation.

APPLE VALLEY REVIEW

As snow began falling outside the Star East Buffet Restaurant, Mayor Barbara Stanton was inside giving the Apple Valley Lions Club a mini-version of the state of the town address.

After sharing a meal and conversation Feb. 27 with local members, Stanton jumped into her 40-minute presentation.

Stanton, a former radio talk show host, said it was very easy for her to “right the world” behind a microphone, but very different when she began understanding the world of city government.

SPECIAL TO THE APPLE VALLEY REVIEW

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

APPLE VALLEY REVIEW

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.
