Dreaming of Kenny’s, but I’ll settle with Walmart

By   /  April 15, 2014  /  29 Palms, Opinion  /  11 Comments

Every time we go into Rite-Aid anymore to get a prescription filled or refilled it becomes this big dramatic hassle. I wax fondly of the days of Kenny’s Drug Store and the always fast and efficient service of Carrol Barrett. It seems the days of really caring for folks ended when they closed their door. […]

By   /  April 15, 2014  /  General Posts, News, Opinion, Survival  /  2 Comments

A riviting film: “Brothers”

By   /  April 8, 2014  /  General Posts, Opinion, Yucca Valley  /  No Comments

I highly recommend this movie! “Brothers” is a heart wrenching film.  A film in which you’ll share every bit of your compassion, with ever fiber of your being, with the homeland characters in this family. We all hear about this war. The  rhetoric is dry and stale.  And we’re so far removed from the reality […]

Z107.7 ran a story today about the meeting that was held on Saturday discussing the options available for the 29 Palms Fire Department. The reporting of what was presented was accurate.

Today: My visit to the Tortoise Rock Casino was staggering

Chief Setting Bull

The casino is open today for everyone until 5:00 p.m. Since I was in town, I spend 10 minutes inside. The tobacco smoke bolts you over. The place is so packed with slots, hardly room for anything else. The sit-down eating place is dank, small and in one corner of the casino. You see no […]
