I want to tell everyone about a really wonderful man, who, when I first met him seemed like a dynamo is gone. Back when I was attending Queen of Angels Catholic Church here in Alpine, and we, my family and I, were very involved, we had the pleasure of meeting Jim Archer.  Jim was the handsome man with the white hair and glasses who could have been a movie star, standing next to his wife who could have also been a movie star.

The Alpine Teachers' Strike is over according to an e-mail sent out by Superintendent Tom Pelligrino:

     The District and teacher leaders worked into the early morning on Tuesday, February 25 and reached an agreement that both parties can stand behind.  The strike has ended!  We know that your child will be extremely happy to see our Alpine teachers back.  We are too!  We are committed to maintaining the high level of education that you have grown to expect and deserve.  Teachers will be back in the classroom Tuesday.

Have you ever heard of iHookah?  It looks like one is trying to make its way into Alpine.  In the next Design and Review board meeting, iHooka is asking for signage approval, and has their location listed at 2963 Alpine Blvd.  This location is at the Albertsons Shopping Center, where Yogurt Jubilee was.

    In the August issue of the Kiwanis magazine, our Alpine Kiwinis were featured in the story, ‘A Kiwnis kind of town: Alpine CA, a Small California Community with a Big Kiwanis Heart’.  In the story, the Alpine Kiwanis are declared a ‘force of nature unto themselves’.

This weekend nine more plaques were added to the Veteran’s Wall of Honor to commemorate and remember the value and service that was honorably given for our country.  The new names include: Claude Wilkens, John Schuttenheim, , Mabel Stenstrom, Pete Peters, Raymond Contrares, Robert Taylor, Steve Renne and Theodore Bazdorf.
As the Pledge of Allegence began, hats were removed, hearts were covered and the pledge was solemnly recited by all, looking at the flag with respect.

     The Honky Tonk Kings started the party off with a great selection of Country Music that started the toes a tappin’ and couples spinning on the dance floor.  Then on Saturday morning, the community center was offering morning faire, starting the day off with a well rounded breakfast burrito filled with eggs, cheese and bacon.

Aloha! All were kono (invited) to the ono (delicious) Annual Hawaiian Luau of the Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW Bert Fuller Post 9578 in Alpine!  It was a wonderful event, allowing everyone some summertime fun!  There was plenty of food and drinks to keep the merriment going.  The luau benefited cancer aid and research and homeless women who are military veterans.
