From Snuggies to Beanie Wienies, the new Dollar General store in Apple Valley has a little of everything.

That was the discovery Marie Apodaca made on Memorial Day, as she stopped by the newly-opened store on Navajo Road south of Highway 18.

“It’s like a mini-version of one of the bigger retail stores,” said Apodaca, as she maneuvered her cart down one of the many narrow store aisles. “We are headed to the park and we need to stock up.”

If you’re reading this and haven’t cast your absentee ballot yet, it probably won’t affect the total. Better to go down now and vote in person and toss the absentee. While though the losers and “top twos” are being anointed from the primary today, the fact is the count will go on for several days and if past is prolog there could be changes in the close contests. To no one’s surprise, President Food Stamp will win California by a wide margin.

Sad and somber. Those were the words Virgie Pugh used to describe a lady in her late 40s who visited her Red Hat Society ladies group, a few years ago.

“After a few visits, she just blossomed and came alive,” said Pugh, queen of the “Fun and Frisky Hattitude” group. “I never thought I would ever see her smile. At her funeral, she wore her red hat and purple dress. She told us that our group taught her how to live before she died.”
