Riverside Mountain Rescue Unit celebrates 50 years

The Riverside Mountain Rescue Unit (RMRU) celebrates its 50 birthday on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 6 p.m. at the Country Club at Soboba Springs in San Jacinto, a goodly distance from the mountain rescue work in which this skilled and committed group of volunteers is usually engaged. And it would not be surprising if, during […]

Idyllwild School academic performance steadily improves

Idyllwild School academic performance steadily improves

Idyllwild School’s Annual Performance Index (API) soared 29 points, the largest gain in the district, to 873. Hemet Unified School District’s (HUSD) overall API is 755. The API is an index that combines the results of language and math achievement tests for the individual grades into one value for the whole school or district. Two […]

Idyllwild Community Center planning reignited

A new committee of about 10 local residents has been constituted to develop a plan for the anticipated Idyllwild Community Center (ICC). The group, currently headed by Bill Sanborn, with Bill Lowman in the wings, began meeting, discussing and planning in July. “We are a new group with renewed vigor,” Sanborn said with a smile. […]

Initial Thoughts: We’re all on the “Hill” …

Sept. 11. “9/11.” We recognize either since September 11, 2001 became an infamous day in American history. Thousands of Americans died and thousands more of their families and friends suffered from the attacks on civilians. While the carnage occurred thousands of miles east of Idyllwild, our community was not isolated. The answer to the Town […]

All are welcome to attend this free event, which is sponsored by the EarthWitness Foundation and the Community Arts Network. From 11 a.m. […]

Opinion: IWD and future water supply

I read the article “Idyllwild Arts plans more growth and less water use” and want to convey my understanding from many years working for the County of San Bernardino on these issues, about the process for obtaining a will-serve letter. To build anything over 100 sq. ft., one needs to obtain a building permit from […]

Opinion: Measure G loss requires heads to fall

[Idyllwild Fire District Commissioners Pete] Capparelli and [Paul] Riggi should step aside now. This new board will need every minute possible to steer clear of the arriving train wreck. [Commissioners Ben] Killingsworth, and [Jeannine] Stigall should resign, not because Measure G failed, but because they had no needs analysis or spending plan and didn’t understand […]

Opinion: IFPD inspections

Now that IFPD has an excellent board and an excellent fire chief, I was very disappointed and surprised to learn that only about 30 percent of property inspections have been completed. If IFPD will be responsible for all inspections, obviously they do not have the time or personnel to complete them. Why not have the […]

Opinion: Stop speeding

First, I’d like to thank those select few who don’t speed and tailgate around town. I’ve noticed that there has been an increase of police presence in front of the school, which is good since the average speed through the school zone seems to be about 40 [miles per hour] and heaven help those who […]

Creature Corner: Sept. 8, 2011

A couple of lost dogs were reunited with their humans on this busy holiday, which made for a good weekend. And, the concerns of the young men who found a baby kitty in a woodshed soon became a success story as they found the perfect family to love and care for their little found ball of fur. Good job boys.
