Sponsored by the Friends of the Idyllwild Library, his fascinating presentation described the origins of our mountains from the interactions of tectonic plates hundreds of millions of years ago to the time when this land was part of a super-continent.Photo by Tom Kluzak Riverside County Ordinance 927 was written at the end of last year to regulate short-term vacation rentals. The motivation for writing the ordinance was because of the Coachella Valley and its music festivals. It also covers rural areas like Temecula’s wine country and Idyllwild. When the Idyllwild Association of Realtors got news of this from an article written in the Town Crier, there were certain sections that were seen to be problematic for our mountain community, such as street parking and occupancy limits. So, a subcommittee was formed to address these issues. Meeting last Friday with 3rd District Supervisor Chuck Washington (second from left) at the Idyllwild Library were subcommittee members Johnny Wilson (left) and (from left, center) Marge Muir, Sheila Zacker and Trischa Clark. Revisions have been made to allow on-street parking in the Idyllwild and Pine Cove areas.

The concert was originally scheduled for the Lilac Gardens on South Circle, but cold weather caused a postponement until Saturday, and it moved indoors.

From left are Dan St. Marseille on sax, Hynes on guitar and Marshall Hawkins on bass, each very familiar to jazz fans in Idyllwild. They combined to present a welcome addition to patrons’ meals.Photo by Tom Kluzak Cheyenne Womack entertained the patrons of the Aroma Café on Monday, May 23 with his solo guitar renditions, interesting quiet and provocative melodies that enhanced the dinner experience.
