As motorists wait patiently for an alternate route to congested Bear Valley Road, the Town Council tonight will review the Yucca Loma Bridge project, and discuss the construction delay caused by the National Parks Service.

“The timeliness of those actions is impossible to predict,” a town report revealed.

October 23, 2012

We posed the following question to candidates for the Apple Valley Unified School District board of trustees: Have you/will you signed and returned the attached “Taxpayer Protection Pledge” to oppose all tax increases? Why or why not? Below are their responses.

Q&A with Lawrence McCarthy: Staying light-hearted

October 16, 2012

Lawrence McCarthy was born in Rochester, N.Y. in 1935. At five years old, his family moved to Atwater, between Glendale and the Los Angeles River.

“We’re officially a sports bar, but we offer a little bit of everything,” said manager George Perez. “We’re the Gator’s bar that doesn’t bite.”
