Candidates' night

Wednesday, May 5, at the Walker Community Center, there will be an evening for voters to hear from candidates for not only our district's supervisor, but those running for other offices, as well. It is a perfect time to help you make election decisions. This also reminds me to tell you to be registered to vote June 8. Registration forms are available at the post office, so don't miss being a voter.

Mountain Warfare Challenge

May 22, the Marine Corps sponsors their annual 10-kilometer off-road race challenge at the Mountain Warfare Training Center. It provides obstacles such as a 5-foot wall climb, tire course, and a tunnel crawl. It gives you a chance to compete with the Marines. For information, call David Warren at (760) 932-1572 or at

This and that

Local artists Erma Thomas and Sally Joseph and the Antelope Valley Women's Club presented a beautiful painting to the Antelope Elementary School on Friday. This picture depicts two beautiful colts, which happen to be the school's mascots. The kids in the assembly when it was presented really loved the painting, which now hangs in their multipurpose room.

Fishing season opened last Saturday on the West Walker River. It was a beautiful day and the waters were perfect. Get out there and enjoy the beauty of the surroundings along with catching some beautiful fish.

The Walker Thrift Store has continued their monthly $3 bag sale until this Saturday. They have a lot of new things out for you to check, so try to get down there for a great buy.
