We found this dog running on Japatul Valley Road with another dog that looked like a shepherd Sharpay mix.(both males)  The shepherd mix ran down a driveway, but we have this little guy at the Alpine Sun Office.  Let us know if you know him, our number: 445-3288

The Friends of the Pine Valley Library began what they hope will be an annual tradition with a beautiful home tour, featuring intricately decorated homes for the holiday.  Eight homeowners signed on to share their holiday spirit and their décor with visitors who were ready to garner some Christmas spirit.  Each home was a spectacular example of how to spruce up your domain with everything from the traditional to the cute and quirky.

Many have asked The Alpine Sun if we have heard anything about the County’s decision regarding the 7/Eleven issue and the Type 21 Liquor License that was to be issued.  At the last Alpine Community Planning Group meeting, their was a motion to appeal the County’s decision to transfer a Type 21 Liquor License to be used by the incoming 7/Eleven business slated to be the anchor store at the new Victoria Village business park.  The vote to appeal that decision was 10 yes, 0 no, 2 abstentions, and 2 absent.

The last concert of the season brought Alpine out to enjoy “The King of Rock and Roll”. Elite Elvis, performed by James Kruk touched the hearts and souls of every concert attendee at the park. His charisma was felt by every lady present, and even the men reveled the reminiscence of Elvis in his prime.

This is the second time Elite Elvis has been a part of the Summer Concerts, and at this last concert, Kruk joined the crowd, danced with the audience and even sang to Carmen Lewis, who turned 99 this year.
 

A great way to end the summer holiday is to throw the biggest bash in the community! On Labor Day Sunday, after the 10:00 mass, Our Lady of Light Catholic Church celebrates with a deep pit barbeque that rivals none other.

Cars 4 a Cause came crusing into Alpine to benefit Relay for Life. About 30 cars were arranged all around Alpine Elementary’s parking lot to help the American Cancer Society. This is their first big car show for the Alpine Area. Each car was buffed up and shining in the bright sun, attracting strollers to appreciate the tender loving care that went into each vehicle.

Sunday’s Summer Concert at the Alpine Community Center Park, performed by Cool Fever kept the crowd on their toes. The Kiwanis were there with their cook shack, providing a tasty dinner for anyone who wanted a fresh burger with accoutrements.
