AFTER THE HOLIDAY
• Attendance at the last Saturday Breakfast and the great Spaghetti Dinner was light, as usual after a three-day holiday weekend (weekenders and guests were busy in the city washing their RVs or ATVs).
But if you are lucky enough to be in Johnson Valley, and want to go out early on Saturday mornings and beat the heat, remember the JV Saturday Breakfast is always on from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m. Order To-Go if you wish, or come inside and socialize with friends and neighbors.
You can still order two favorites invented during the Lockdown To-Go days!
2-Egg Omelette, 7.00 3-Egg, 8.00
2-Egg Breakfast Burrito 7.00 3-Egg, 8.00
Or enjoy one of the old favorites on our traditional Menu:
The Large Breakfast Plate is only 7.00. Take your choice of
-Hash Browns with Biscuit,
-Biscuits & Gravy, or
(each entree comes with two eggs cooked any way, plus bacon, ham, or sausage).
The Small Breakfast Plate gives you the same menu choices, just smaller servings, for only 5.00.
And, as always, you get the never-empty coffee cup.
To order to-go, or call in a pre-order, dial 760-892-4555 (if busy, please call back).
Cash, check or credit card accepted.
• We were talking last week about San Bernardino County Code Enforcement going after the trash and junk left behind on the busted illegal pot farms. Now we read in Supervisor Cook’s newsletter that they have won a 2022 National Association of Counties Award for their Cannabis Enforcement Program.
“Working in tandem with our San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department and San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office, the Code Enforcement Team has developed a systematic approach to enforcing the County’s cannabis codes. Two specialized code enforcement teams collaborate with law enforcement and work towards compliance and restoration of these cannabis grow sites.
“Due to weak state laws, our High Desert has become the newest ‘Emerald Triangle,’ rivaling the Humboldt Redwoods in the amount of illegal cannabis grows on vacant lots and inside rented homes. These are not recreational growers. They are dangerous organized cartels, who are not afraid to shoot at residents — or law enforcement — in their efforts to safeguard their cash and products.
“San Bernardino County prohibits commercial cannabis cultivation in its unincorporated areas. The County code allows for a limited number of cannabis plants to be grown for personal use, but cultivation is explicitly prohibited for commercial purposes.
“The environmental impacts are also extremely serious, as these cartel members are not afraid to steal our water, electricity, or dump dangerous and illegal pesticides into our groundwater.
“Congratulations to Code Enforcement, and thank you for your continued teamwork with the Sheriff and District Attorney to safeguard our desert communities.”
Ditto from Johnson Valley!

• Good news. Our quail population seems to be re-establishing itself. Families spotted in our backyards and roosting in the trees are an encouraging sign.
Still, no coyotes heard yodeling at night.
