WATCH THE SKIES THIS WEEK FOR THE PERSEID METEOR SHOWERS

Late in every summer the Perseid meteor shower delights sky watchers with a show of multiple streaks of light that appear to originate from the constellation Perseus. Reporter Mike Lipsitz has more on the phenomenon and some tips on how to get the best view…

The Perseids are usually among each year’s brightest and most accessible meteor showers, turning up between July 17 and August 24 as Earth passes through the path of Comet Swift-Tuttle. This year our planet will drift through the most dense part of the Swift-Tuttle trail on Saturday, August 12. Unfortunately, this year the Perseids will be a little more difficult to see because the moon will be three-quarters full and will rise shortly before the shower hits its peak around midnight. Patient sky watchers can still expect to see the brightest meteors, but most will be obscured by the moonlight. Find a viewing spot where city lights and those from neighbors will be at a minimum. Set up a chair and give your eyes ten or 15 minutes to adjust to the darkness and concentrate on the northeastern part of the night sky any time from around midnight until sunrise. The days just before and after August 12 should also provide reliable viewing opportunities.

COUNTY’S RENEWABLE ENERGY DEVELOPMENT PLAN SENT BACK TO PLANNING COMMISSION

After listening to hundreds of speakers during a five-hour marathon meeting yesterday, the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors voted unanimously to send the county’s renewable energy development guidelines back to the Planning Commission for further review. Once approved by the board of supervisors, the guidelines will be included in the county’s general plan and will determine where solar farms can be developed in the county. Large-scale solar developers were unhappy that that the proposed plan required that new solar farms be built on already disturbed land or in remote areas of the county like Amboy, or that they would be prohibited from building solar farms in rural living areas or in areas that would have a negative impact on surrounding local communities. Conservationists were unhappy that the county’s plan didn’t protect communities from solar development and that they would have to fight solar projects on their own.

SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER UPSET OVER TRAINING AT CHURCH

They say you shouldn’t discuss politics or religion among friends. One of those rules was breached at last night’s Morongo Unified School District Board of Education meeting, causing tempers to briefly flare. Reporter David Haldane, who was there, explains…

Is it OK for public school employees to be trained at a church? Morongo Unified School District board member Karalee Hargrove thinks not. And she minced no words in saying so at the board meeting last night.

“When you run a public agency on $100 million that’s all publicly funded money and then ask all those publicly paid-for employees to go to a church for a training, I think you’re crossing a bit of a line.”

Her comments were sparked by Superintendent Tom Baumgarten’s announcement of a half-day staff development session scheduled for August 17 in the Thunderdome at Joshua Springs Calvary Chapel in Yucca Valley. Though original plans called for it to be held elsewhere, he said, no other venue could be found.

That didn’t placate Hargrove. “You don’t want to make a teacher feel out of place. They don’t feel comfortable in going to that place. And when you organize that development, you do it in an all-inclusive environment.”

But the training will go on, Baumgarten said, including a school-sponsored talent show called Morongo’s Got Talent.

VEGETATION FIRE IN MORONGO VALLEY YESTERDAY

Morongo Valley firefighters and CalFire made quick work of a vegetation fire Tuesday evening. According to Morongo Valley Fire Captain Jeff Rarey, firefighters were called to a 100-foot by 30-foot vegetation fire near Bella Vista and Highway 62 about 6:40 p.m. Firefighters got the blaze under control in about 5 minutes and it was completely out in about 20 minutes, Rarey said. CalFire is investigating the cause of the fire that burned mostly creosote, cactus, and thick vegetation in the rocky area.

A house sitter in the 7400 block of Canyon Drive reported that sometime between 6:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., someone broke in through a sliding glass door and stole guns and other property. A resident in the 58800 block of Santa Barbara Drive reported to deputies that burglars forced open the front door and stole electronics, cash, jewelry, guns, and other items. And St. Joseph of Aramethea Church reported that burglars broke a window and stole cash and electronics. Anyone with information should call the Sheriff’s Department at 760-366-4175.

YUCCA VALLEY SQUATTERS ARRESTED

Three people were arrested Monday night on various charges, after they were found squatting in someone’s Yucca Valley home. According to a Sheriff’s report, deputies were asked to check a home in the 7400 block of Alaba Avenue for squatters. When deputies arrived about 8:30 p.m., they found Shalom Wellong, 45, at the home with a large amount of methamphetamine. Shalom Wellong was arrested for investigation of possession for sales, booked into the Morongo Basin Jail, with his bail set at $50,000. Devon Ann Seegrist, 39, was arrested on suspicion of providing a false name to a deputy, and on warrants for drug charges. Devon Ann Seegrist was booked into the Morongo Basin Jail with her bail set at $125,000. Brian Huddleston, 52, was arrested for investigation of possession of a controlled substance, cited, and released.
