I would like to give a big “thank you” and hug to the two Marines who ran across Adobe Road and lifted me up when I fell in front of Office Supplies Plus and to the young ladies of that store who came out to help, then took me in, found me a chair, gave me a drink of water and proceeded to d…

You heard the term, it takes a village to raise a child. Well, a little different take, and it took a community to host the Joshua Tree 55 (JT55) Bike Ride. On April 27, the community of Twentynine Palms hosted its annual Park 2 Park Bicycle Ride, now called JT55 Bike Ride, with over 300 par…
