This and That

This and That Courtesy: Inland Politics Administrator

Can anyone confirm or deny… 1. UPDATE-A major retail store will be pulling out of Yucca Valley? The leasing agent for Marshalls confirmed they are NOT pulling out.

2. Fired ex-Town Manager has been meeting/consulting with Yucca Valley Staff? …or “Stake Holders?”

3. UPDATE: The Marine Base has an abnormal high rate of auto accidents and suicides among our military?

Marine Corp Times> Ending it all by their own hands:Corps Probes Marine Suicides

ABC News > California Marines Dying in Auto Crashes  (MCGACC  Deaths in Middle East=60 Auto Accidents=64, since 2007)

4. Hi-Desert Director Sheldon Hough (up for reelection this year) combined his residential parcel #1 and adjoining vacant lot parcel #2 to avoid receiving TWO sewer assessments?

5.  UPDATE: HDWD Sarann Graham has a residence and adjoining lot not eligible to combine to achieve one parcel # as above, seeking an exception to the rule for only ONE assessment? (A large custom garage/man cave built on #2…with shower/toilet?)  Director Graham disclosed she and her husband decided not to combine their two lots and they will be assessed for TWO parcels.  The San Bernardino County tax office combines their two parcels for billing purposes only.

6. Ex HDWD CFO/GM Frank Luckino tossed his hat into the ring for Yucca Valley Town Manager?

7.  “Retired” Jim Schooler tossed his hat into the ring seeking the position of Yucca Valley Town Manager?

8.  UPDATE: The HDWD requested the local newspaper NOT put the #1 concern of Yucca Valley Sewer assessment costs (reported on newspaper front page) on the website to AVOID any comments from citizens?

The HDWD asked to review the printed version of the sewer assessment information but were unable to reach the editor with their corrections and clarifications to the story.  No word as to why the story has not been posted on the website. (No sewer story has been posted on their website as of this update of April 1, 2014, 11pm)

You can post your comment to this story or contact me…Thanks!

  1. Ed Montgomery Ed Montgomery says:

    According to my sources, which come from the people that are actually doing the construction, Marshall’s have pulled out two or three months ago and are not going to build a new store in Yucca Valley.

    If anybody else has any information I would like to hear about this, and if it’s true or not?

      Nothing suggesting Yucca Valley for this year anyway.

  2. michaelv michaelv says:

    And one more thing, the Walbern Development companies website has no listing for present commercial projects in Yucca Valley, the only one was when they built Home Depot.

  3. Ed Montgomery Ed Montgomery says:

    MichaeV thank you for that information. That just confirms that my sources were correct and there will not be any Marshals built in Yucca Valley anytime soon. So now my question is , did Marshals pull out on their own or did the town of Yucca Valley screw this up?

    • michaelv michaelv says:

      I went back and looked at the Newspaper article stating that the planning commission had approved both Marshall’s and Petco to be built at the same time by Walbern. So the question is, will Petco sen be built?

  4. Steve Whitten Steve Whitten says:

    PetCo and Marshall’s are under construction in front of The Home Depot.

    Keep in mind the Rainbow store next to JC Penney, carry many of the same items that Toda Moda carries at a higher price. That would be my guess.

    • If you like being gouged with higher prices, PetCo is for you.

      • PetCo… on the other hand: The Petco Foundation, an independent nonprofit organization, has raised more than $125 million since it was created in 1999 to help promote and improve the welfare of companion animals. Petco and the Petco Foundation work with and support thousands of local animal welfare groups across the country to host in-store adoption events and help find homes for adoptable dogs, cats and other companion animals.

    • michaelv michaelv says:

      I am confused, Are you saying that those two stores are presently under construction?

  5. Ed Montgomery Ed Montgomery says:

    I hope it true that Marshall’s is still going to build here in Yucca Valley!
    I do see the construction in front of Home Depot, but I was told they were building something else. But now , according to Steve Whitten and Margo Sturges “The leasing agent for Marshalls” Marshall is being built right now. Now we’ll just have to wait and see what is actually built their.

    Will there be a Marshall’s built in Yucca Valley? We will find out soon enough. I do appreciate anybody’s input, thank you.
