Wrightwood Elementary Celebrates Maddie Mastro, as Hometown Hero
By Donna Alvarez
March 20, 2018: Wrightwood Elementary School’s cafeteria was filled with energy, excitement, and anticipation as students waited for their hometown hero, Olympic Snowboarder Maddie Mastro. Students displayed American Flags, and posters of Maddie to show their enthusiasm.
Maddie took the stage, along with Superintendent Dr. Ryan Holman, to talk about her experience in the South Korean Winter Olympics in PyeongChang. Maddie answered Holman’s questions, which included everything that would interest her young Wrightwood fans. She fully enjoyed the opening ceremonies, one of her favorite activities, where she got to wear the United States Team Uniform, represent the U.S.A. along with 240 of her teammates, and watch the Olympic flame being lit. Maddie talked about the atmosphere of the Olympic Village, where the U.S. team was housed in a skyscraper type building, eating her favorite food ,which was Korean Bar-B-Q, Indian food, and caramel ice cream, meeting new friends from New Zealand, watching the U.S. Women’s Hockey Team take gold, watching 15-year old American speed skater Maame Biney race, and cheering on her snowboarding teammates. Maddie stated that the Olympic fans were the biggest and best crowds ever.
Holman asked Maddie what sport she actually participated in first. It was T-ball here in Wrightwood. He then asked how she handled setting a goal, as she did in PyeongChang, only to have fallen short of the achievement. Maddie said that she had no regrets. She had a plan to complete her hardest trick first in each of her three runs. Even though she fell, she said, “You learn by your mistakes. You go for the next goal. I took a day to re-think my goals, and then set a new goal to compete in the Nationals after the Olympics (where she placed second).” She continued, saying, “In order to accomplish a goal, you may have to say no to many fun things in school, and no to fun things you do with friends. It is a sacrifice. Then, you may have to say yes to more time in the gym and more time in practice.” Maddie shared that on her way home from PyeongChang, she participated in the “Save Korean Dogs” by being a traveling companion for one of the Korean dogs. She said the lucky dog now has an amazing new home in America. As a supporter of shelter and rescue dogs, Maddie has three of her own.
Students at Wrightwood Elementary presented Maddie a signed poster with many positive messages. This was given to her by first grader Aurora Warren. A handmade gold medal was also given to her by newly sponsored snowboarder, fourth grader Michael Morgaridge, who is now being sponsored by Pharmacy Snowboards.
In return Maddie presented Wrightwood Elementary School with an official Olympic flag signed by her. With her enthusiasm and generosity of spirit, Maddie truly is Wrightwood’s Hometown Hero and an inspiration to its young people on many different levels.
Local tree mortality addressed by Cal Fire
By Terri Hill
March 18, 2018: For several months, residents in Wrightwood have been noticing small sap droplets on cars, decks, walkways, and outdoor furniture. The clear substance looks like a fine mist, applied by a spray gun, and it seems to collect on vehicles that are parked out in the open, under pines, or under oaks.
Kathy Smith, a Board member on the Wrightwood Fire Safe Council, was concerned the about the sap, and its probable connection to tree mortality. She contacted Cal Fire Unit Forester Henry Herrera about her concerns. Mr. Herrera came to Wrightwood at the end of January, to survey the tress, and find the source of the sap, as well as to gauge the health of the trees in the area.
Pitch droplets tend to be symptomatic of insect infestation or disease. According to Herrera’s report, many insects secrete a clear, sweet liquid called honeydew. Pine aphids, among other pests, can cause growth reduction in young trees, but natural predators, like ladybugs, tend to keep the population of these insects under control.
Herrera found a multitude of pines in Wrightwood are dead or dying, due primarily to bark beetle infestations. The root of the die-off, he explained, is stress to trees, caused by lack of water. A healthy tree will produce resin that pushes the beetles out when they bore into the bark. Without enough water, the tree cannot produce enough resin to fight off the beetle attack.
Herrera included the following in his report:
A recent communication from Stacy Hishinuma (2018) stated that “…pitch streaming is caused by the California Flatheaded Borer (Melanophila californic)... Attacks by California flatheaded borer are not always fatal but may be if the tree is stressed. Pitching usually means that the tree is attempting to fight off the (borer) infestation…this is usually a good sign.” Herrera added, “There is no cure for bark beetle infested trees.” Some of the most common bark beetles attacking trees in Wrightwood include the California fives-pined ips (Ips paraconfusus), western pine beetle (Dendroctonus brevicomis) and red turpentine beetle (Dendroctonusvalens). Prevention is key and can be achieved by thinning the tree stands to 20’ between main stems. This is the best long term preventative measure. Deep watering high value trees is also an option.
Infested trees should be cut down immediately, and the wood should be chipped and hauled away. Trees that cannot be chipped should be tarped with six (6) mil plastic.
Herrera also observed many oak trees in Wrightwood that are dying from severe broadleaf mistletoe infections. He reported 80% of the crown on many of those trees are infected.
Mistletoe is a parasite that can greatly affect water stress of host trees. Infected branches should be pruned, and for trees with multiple main stems, Herrera recommends cutting away any infected main stems. Complete removal of heavily infected trees will protect nearby healthy trees.

PPHCSD Rehabilitation Plans
By Terri Hill
During the March 7 meeting of the Phelan Pinon Hills Community Services District (CSD) the Board of Directors decided on several pieces of business.
Staff has solicited bids for the rehabilitation of the Phelan Community Center and Park parking lot, and the Board approved entering into a Professional Services Agreement (PSA) with TRLS Engineering & Design Services for the project. According to the Engineering manager’s report, “Improvements will include a larger trash enclosure, expanded parking lot to increase turning mobility, regrading to mitigate flooding issues at the Community Center, and (compliance) with current Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements.”
The Board also approved the 2018/2019 Budget Assumptions, and the replacement of the Well 9B pump and motor.
General Manager Don Bartz reported on the cost to the CSD of the water “line locate” jobs required for Race Communications’ subterranean builds. The ‘locates,’ as referred to by Bartz, require two to six employees working nine hours per day, and the use of at least one vehicle at $25 per hour. Bartz worked on the numbers and estimates 1700 hours of work, at a cost $120,000 to the CSD, by the time all of the locates have been performed. He spoke with Attorney Steve Kennedy, who reported that according to government code, a Local Agency required to do subsurface investigation may charge the requesting utility/contractor company for the costs.
San Bernardino County Fire Captain Travis Aguirre reported call stats for the Phelan station in February, including 110 medical aid calls, 22 traffic collisions, 4 structure fires, 4 vehicle fires, and 22 investigations. He confirmed that the ban on fire permits has been lifted, and stressed that residents must still contact the department to make sure it’s an authorized burn day.
Sheriff Sergeant Vacarri also reported call stats for Phelan with 707 calls for service, 72 reports taken, and 20 arrests, and Pinon Hills with 222 calls, 19 reports, and one arrest. Vacarri explained that most burglaries involving electronics, like Xbox and PlayStation, are the result of too much information being shared. He said that often, teens will talk too much about the expensive toys they have, or a ‘friend of a friend’ comes to the home, and takes a mental inventory, only to come back later and steal the items. Vacarri suggested that in the case of game systems being stolen, the most likely suspect is either, “The kid who suddenly quit coming around,” directly after the burglary, or “The one who wants to be really helpful with the investigation.”
Susan Drake, Representative from Supervisor Lovingood’s office, announced the next Veterans’ event will be held in Apple Valley, on May 31, 2018. The Mountaineer will publish details as they become available.
SJUSD honors The Heritage School students for Science Fair achievements
By Donna Alvarez
March 6, 2018: Snowline Joint Unified School District (SJUSD) meeting, the boardroom was packed with 26 Middle School Science Fair winners from The Heritage School. The school board honored the excited students Tuesday night. Among them were the three winners: 1st place winner, Sarah Crowley, 2nd place winner, Shane Gage; and 3rd place winner, Brady Elliott. Of the 26 students, 17 will advance to the San Bernardino County Science Fair on April 3rd in Fontana.
During community comments, some controversy occurred regarding the resignation of Dan Andrus, Principal of Serrano High School. While some did not support Andrus, many Serrano teachers spoke in support of him. They stated that he was a great leader, who was very supportive of his teachers and their programs, and was not afraid to stand up for what was right. “He is a man of honor,” they said.
Assistant Superintendent Karen Winkler presented the “2nd Interim 2018-2019 Budget Information” and its projections. Winkler explained the intricacies of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and the revenue involved. SJUSD will receive revenue from a one-time money allotment that Governor Brown will send to each of the state’s many school districts. According to Winkler, Governor Brown expects to be able to fully fund Snowline’s LCFF in 2018-2019. Winkler further stated, “Assembly Bill, AB 2808, would increase Snowline’s LCFF rates in 2018-2019. Additionally, there is another proposal to increase LCFF funding (to the state’s school districts) of $1.2 billion. This has not been assigned an Assembly Bill number. This proposal is to help districts that are facing rising operational costs in areas like retirement, health care, transportation, and special education. Both of these initiatives would help Snowline’s budget into the future.”
During board comments, Board member Steve Coulombe addressed the issue of the new housing developments within the Snowline District. The awareness to accommodate the new students and their demography is important for the transition of these new students into SJUSD.
Student school board member Sabrina Cisneros reported that Quail Valley Middle School’s cheerleading squad won a high placement in the National Cheerleading Competition. She applauded Serrano High School for its celebration of art contest regarding Black History Month, which Sabrina herself won, according to Dr. Holman.
Board member David Nilsen proposed that a workshop be held to alert the public on what the district is doing to keep the schools in SJUSD safe. This would help to continue the support the district’s recently passed ‘Safe Area for Everyone’ Resolution, or, S.A.F.E. (See Mountaineer Progress, D. Alvarez, February 22-28, 2018, page 7).
Wrightwood Blues Society All-Stars
By Michael Palecki
March 9, 2018: Friday night at The Yodeler, Wrightwood Blues Society (WBS) President Greg Jones put together a band after learning during the week that scheduled performers-Allison Scull & Victor Martin-had cancelled their concert tour because of a death in Martin’s family. In the tradition of, “The show must go on,” combined with a few telephone calls, the Wrightwood All-Stars came to life for the listening enjoyment of music fans.
All-Star musicians included Greg Jones on keyboards and vocals, Danny Flores playing lead electric guitar, Walter Foley playing rhythm guitar, Irwin Williams playing bass guitar, Dave Leicht on harmonica and vocals, Mike Romaine playing drums, John Burcher Senior & Junior playing saxophones, and Gail Mahler on flute with female vocalists Brittan Egnozzi and Claudia Campbell.
Starting off with a medley of his original songs the mood was jazzy as Jones sang “Lovely Day” and then shifted to R&B for “Stop Whining, Its Only The Blues.” After that his voice became plaintiff and almost spoken word for Bob Marley’s song “Waiting in Vain.” Sliding back to organ, the tempo increased for “Every King Of People” and kept going for the Isley Brothers’ “Work To Do” as Danny Flores hit high shrill notes accompanied by Irwin Williams’ surging bass notes, creating a locomotion to Jones’ vocals. After that, Flores screeched into a wall of sound as Jones sang “Evil Ways” by Carlos Santana.
Following a break, Jones introduced Brittan Egnozzi and Claudia Campbell who sang a sultry version of the George & Ira Gershwin classic song “Summertime,” as Flores and Foley bantered on guitars. After that, the ladies were animated, bouncing harmonies and repetitions off one another and rolling on the river of John Fogerty’s “Proud Mary,” as Mike Romaine pounded a massive drum roll. And then slowing the pace, Jones and Campbell sang a duet for “The Closer I Get To You,” reminiscent of Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway.
Jones introduced WBS Vice President Dave Leicht on harmonica, who began with a solo introduction to Jones’ vocals and keyboards for the Fleetwood Mac song “Doctor Brown.” Once again, the harmonica and Flores’ wailing on guitar channeled a superb musical locomotion. After a reprise with Egnozzi singing “Won’t You Come On Over,” Leicht sang one of his own high-octane songs entitled “Tired” which featured wailing guitars, clinkey piano and blistering harmonica solos careening around his vocals.
Later, John Burcher and his son John Jr. joined the band on saxophones, along with Gail Mahler adding flute to the mix. With the entire Wrightwood All-Stars then in place, tables and benches were pushed aside for dancing to the James Brown power anthem, “I Feel Good.” After that it was time to slow things down in a reverent way, heavy on the horns and mellow on the vocals, for Ray Charles’ epic song “Georgia On My Mind.”
The Wrightwood Blues Society, a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization, strives to encourage, celebrate and disseminate a variety of Blues traditions and creativity. Call Greg Jones at (760) 574-8231 for information on the next quarterly concert

Instructors are key to success of Adaptive Ski School at Mountain High
By Terri Hill
Although the storm they hoped for fizzled, the slopes at Mountain High are still well-groomed each morning, and conditions are great for skiing and snowboarding. That’s what instructors Ken Bisson and David Shu pointed out as we ascended the Snowflake run on the chairlift and watched the activity below. Skiers and snowboarders traversed the slopes, taking advantage of the last two hours of their ski day. I was there to interview some of the 20 specially trained ski and snowboard instructors of the Adaptive Ski/Ride School.
Ken and David rode the lift chair, sitting on either side of me. I was in a bi-ski, a recumbent ski chair, designed to afford people with limited abilities the opportunity to ski. The bi-ski is just one of the rigs available at Mountain High’s Adaptive Ski/Ride School (Adaptive) program.
More than 20 years ago, Lynne Haile and Dan Stormer were responsible for initiating the Adaptive program, and the foundation that still funds the equipment. As Bobby Mourino, Adaptive Ski/Ride School Supervisor, explained, “Stormer was a civil rights lawyer, and part of settlement was designated to fund the school.”
Children and adults can take advantage of the adaptive school. The instructors, Mountain High employees, are certified by the PSIA, Professional Ski Instructors of America, to work with persons of all levels of ability. Physical as well as cognitive disabilities can present obstacles to one’s enjoyment of activities in the snow. The school’s purpose, according to Bobby, is to, “facilitate family and friends’ recreation together, in a winter environment.”
The level of assistance for each student varies. Bisson commented, “We may four instructors to one student, if necessary.” He also explained that how the student steers and maneuvers the bi-ski, depends on the physical injury or ailment. “If the injury affects the legs, the student steers from the waist. If the injury is from the waist down, the student will use his or her shoulders.” Even those without motor function in their upper torsos, can steer by tilting their heads right to left.
The equipment is specialized for particular disabilities as well. Outriggers for the bi-ski act as training wheels, a 3-track is designed for someone with one leg. A student’s walker can be attached to a special apparatus, making it possible to ski standing up. Modifications to each can adjust for ability level and physical support.
An instructor is always tethered to the skier or boarder. Depending on the student’s ability, an instructor will hold on to the bar in the back or hold the straps from distance behind. A typical session includes a run down the bunny slope, a ride on the magic carpet, and one or two chairlift rides for fun trips down the lower slopes, carving s-shaped swoops that you can see from your next lift to the top. Having only attempted skiing once, and failing spectacularly, I was excited to experience the sensation of gliding gracefully down the slope. It was a rush that I can only imagine is liberating to someone whose activities are limited due to physical or cognitive disabilities.
During a good snow season, Mourino said the school probably schedules about 100 adaptive student sessions. He has been working at Mountain High since the “Miracle Year,” 1991. Bisson first started teaching ski school in Wrightwood in 1978. He has been an adaptive program instructor for 15 years. David Shu is a new instructor this year, for both the regular ski school and adaptive. He commented, “Working with the Adaptive school is really rewarding.” It’s obvious to the onlooker, all of the staff feel the same way.
Before the student’s session, answers to written and oral questions provide the instructors with a thorough assessment of the student’s particular needs. Medications, injuries, and emotional temperament are weighed along with the actual physical abilities of the student, to structure the session to accommodate those needs.
A gentleman with cerebral palsy came to Mt. High’s Adaptive School for his first snowboard experience a few years ago. His friend recorded the experience and posted it to You Tube. To see the well-produced 15-minute video, go to https://www.youtube.com/atch?v=ReJ2fOvGWx4.
The video, as well as prices and details for registration, are on Mountain High’s website.
18 Wheeler loses control at 138 & I-15 off-ramp
Residents grow increasingly weary of dangerous I-15 off-ramp
By Terri Hill
On Tuesday, March 6, at approximately 8 a.m. a 2012 Peterbuilt tractor-trailer crashed into the Shell gas station on SR-138 at I-15. California Highway Patrol officials told CBS News that the semi failed to stop as it exited Southbound I-15 at SR-138. The truck crossed the highway, clipping the back of an SUV, then overturned as it slammed into the corner of the Shell station convenience store building. “For reasons still under investigation,” the CHP reported, “the driver failed to stop at the stop sign at the top of the off-ramp, traversed Highway 138 and struck a 1999 GMC Yukon traveling east.” The truck driver and his passenger had to be extricated from the cab, both sustained what the CHP referred to as, “major, but non-life-threatening injuries.” The driver of the Yukon reportedly declined medical attention. SR-138 was closed west of I-15 while County Fire worked to clear the hazardous spill that resulted from the crash.
The latest of a trove of such accidents has stirred up emotions in the Tri-Community, as news outlets remind the public of a similar collision in June 2014. Nicole Brittney Lyle, 18, of Victorville and 16-year-old John Anthony Cabrera Jr. from Phelan, who was known as “John John,” were killed, and three other teens injured when a dump truck carrying concrete exited at Highway 138, came through the stop sign and collided with the teens’ car before crashing into the Shell station.
Residents of the High Desert have, for years, expressed their concerns about the dangerous off-ramp on a steep grade in the Cajon Pass. Trucks coming down the Pass, heading south, have trouble stopping in time on the short ramp. Others have lost their brakes altogether and came to a stop only after colliding with the gas station on the south side of SR-138.
Wrightwood resident Tom Pinard has submitted editorials, for this and other newspapers, and petitioned local and State agencies for a longer, safer off-ramp at that location.
According to Caltrans officials, a new, redesigned off-ramp is in the budget for the year 2020. Commuters and local residents voiced concerns as to how many more fatalities will occur at the location, before the ramp is fixed.
Weakened storm causes minor road issues
Although the storm last weekend fizzled, bringing little rain or snow to the area, traffic was affected on the east and west sides of Wrightwood.
On Friday, March 2, Officer Mumford of the CHP Victorville station posted a warning on Facebook about the heavy fog on Lone Pine Canyon Road was creating low visibility for drivers. Later in the day, Terri Kasinga of Caltrans announced the closure of Highway 2, west of Wrightwood, “due to ice and rock fall between Vincent’s Gap and Islip Saddle.”
Caltrans reopened the road on Sunday, March 4.
Over the weekend, traffic on Highways 138 and 2 were crowded with skiers on their way to enjoy the fresh now at Mountain High. Because the snow level stayed at higher elevations, congestion along SR-2 due to snowplayers stopping on the side of the road was not an issue.
Rental Fees a Hot Topic at the WCSD meeting
By Vicky Rinek
Wrightwood Community Services District held the monthly meeting on Tuesday, March 6, 2018, with a large crowd in attendence. On the agenda were topics including public comments, agency reports and General manager reports.
Public comments were made by John Lenau, regarding the crash at I-15 exit at 138. CERT Volunteer Stretch Signore, spoke on the problems with the required insurance coverage and the rental fees on the community building.
The Sheriff and Fire Departments reported on the activity in Wrightwood. Sheriff Sgt. Vacarri reported the stats for February: 126 calls taken, 8 reports made, 2 arrests, 20 vehicle checks, 15 patrols, and 12 tickets issued. In the West Cajon Valley there were 19 calls taken and 3 reports made. Last weekend 3 units patrolled on Saturday, 2 units on Sunday. Vacarri said, “If you’ve noticed a woman walking on Sheep Creek in Phelan, we checked on her. She is usually barefoot, wearing shorts and a tank-top. She is on a spiritual mission and does not want help. We had complaints; we talked to her, and she has all her faculties and she knows what she’s doing.”
Captain Carl Hegle, of San Bernardino County Fire, addressed the board with the report on activity for Wrightwood Station #14. Fire Chief Kelly Anderson wasn’t able to come, as she was at the scene of an earlier accident at 138 & I-15. Hegle reported two critical injuries from the rollover of the tractor-trailer that had lost its brakes. Three injuries were reported over the weekend: a sledding accident involving an 8-year old who sustained a head injury when she collided with a tree, a 14-year-old who fractured his hip in a similar accident, and a woman fell down an ice chute near Table Mountain, while walking her dog. Rope pulleys had to be used to rescue her. She broke her ankle but is otherwise doing fine. The Sheriff deputies helped find a sitter for the dog.
“We’re getting calls for small brush fires. Everyone in Wrightwood is proactive and when they see smoke, they call,” said Hegle in answer to John Lenau’s query about controlled burns. “We are not (conducting controlled burns) but (Angeles and San Bernardino) Forest Services are. But when in doubt call us.” Hegle also mentioned a number of brush fires called in, almost daily. “Who started the brush fires?” asked Lenau. “They were illegal burns where someone was clearing their property,” Hegle responded. “They were near Hwy 2 and 138.”
Al Morrissette GM made his report. LAFCO is checking on WCSD progress. The assessment records are being changed and updated. QuickBooks is up and running with the help from the CPA Accountant Cecelia Cummings.
UIA up graded the computer, and solid waste records are being transferred into the WCSD computers so the dump cards can be printed at the WCSD office, rather than from Wes Zuber’s computer. “The system is much easier and quicker,” said Morrissette.
He also reported on underground plumbing and outdoor stage electrical repairs.
The hot topic that had the room buzzing was the bump in rental fees for the Community Building to $16 per hour and $50 for use of the kitchen. Users must also provide proof of insurance to cover the Community Building. The fees for the Vivian Park stage would also be collected at $16 an hour. The parking lot usage would cost $16 an hour fee plus a $5 per vendor fee. For non-residents the fees would be slightly higher and a security deposit of $150 would be added to the rental.
Representatives from various organizations expressed their concerns with charging the new fees, which they contend their groups cannot afford. The non-profit organizations, like CERT and Property Owners, serve the community, making it better and safer. Others provide entertainment, cultural events, and programs for children.
Editor’s Opinion: Example: A typical gathering for 4 hours with use of the kitchen would require rental fees of $114.00 for one event. Also, the required insurance from a group would cost between $450 to $2,000 for a year’s coverage.
Examples: the Farmers Market’s rental fees for the parking lot, plus the insurance to operate, could cost them nearly $8,000 a year. The Timberline Lions Club’s monthly meetings at the Community Building and the Museum, calculated under the new fees, would require an annual expense of $2,600. Bingo Night rental would be nearly $1,400 for a year, totaling their cost for all uses of the community buildings nearly $4,500 a year.
Under the old SBCo structure the Timberline Lions paid around half that amount. They, along with other groups, would have to find other accommodations for their meetings and special events, effectively kicking the Timberline Lions Club from the building they built and donated to the community, in good faith, years ago.
The board appeared to be concerned for the various organizations, however, they approved the new rental fees of $16 an hour. They stated that it is expensive to operate the building and everyone using it should pay their fair share. The board put the other rental fee decisions off until next the meeting, scheduled for April 3, 2018 at 7:00 p.m.
Chaparral Instructional Associate arrested
On Thursday, March 1, 2018, school administrators from Chaparral High School obtained information regarding an inappropriate relationship between an employee, 43-year-old Phelan resident Caron Michele Escobar, and students at the school. Caron Michele Escobar is employed with the Snowline Joint Unified School District as an Instructional Associate at Chaparral High School in Phelan. In November of 2017, Escobar was transferred from Eagle Summit Community Day School to her current position at Chaparral High School.
School administrators reported the suspected sexual abuse to the Victor Valley Station. Detectives from the Crimes Against Children Detail assisted with the investigation and interviewed several minors regarding the allegation of sexual abuse.
During the course of the investigation, detectives discovered Escobar had engaged in sex acts with two victims, a 15-year-old male and a 16-year-old male. Escobar also exchanged explicit text communication, which contained obscene matter, with the minors.
On Friday, March 3, 2018, Escobar was arrested for PC 288(c)(1), PC 288a(b)(2), PC 288.2(A) and PC 261.5 (d). She was booked at Central Detention Center in San Bernardino and bail was set for $100,000.
Detectives believe there may be additional victims and are releasing Escobar’s booking photograph. Anyone with information is urged to contact the Specialized Investigation Division, Crimes Against Children Detail, Detective MJ Higgins (909) 387-3615. Callers wishing to remain anonymous are urged to call the We-Tip Hotline at 1-800-78-CRIME (27463).
