Ice cold drinks are ready and beginners are practicing their steps. The buzz is getting louder and louder as the band is doing sound check and you just know that this gathering of friends, neighbors and visitors from down the hill is going to make "The Dance" and Backcountry Barbeque the biggest and best party of the year. The Sons of the American Legion are ready for you. This is their biggest fundraiser and by all indications it appears that this will be the breakout year for attendance. Highlighting the event is Swingshfft, one of Southern California's top country/weststern bands, in an encore performance. Swingshift has great musicians and singers that will play current and classic country as well as swing, rhythm and blues and rock n roll. One thing for certain, is that thei , nus 2 polished and professional and best of all you'll get to Waltz, Swing, Two Step as well as line dance to the great hits of several musical genres. The hearty souls who braved last years' weather, remember this band dressed in borrowed winter garb and putting on a great show. We wanted them back and their response was "let's play two". The entertainment doesn't end there. The Mountain Tribal Gypsy has done spectacular shows in the past and they're first up when the band breaks. Next break, we turn the floor over to the kids and Jake's Mountain, a favorite local duo of Janice Smith and Blake Rogers. At the after dark break we'll have a treat, as local musician Dennis Ruzec and his band Malaki perform a reggae set. A couple of other entertainment surprises are planned if time allows. This year the Sons are spotlighting breast cancer awareness and have invited the Susan G. Koman "Race For The Cure" to have an informational : booth. They'll be there to answer iiquestions and provide you with iinformation on this scourge that ; affects the women we love and adore, oh and guys get it too!. Things seem to change right up to show time, and this year is no exception as there is a surprise or two for everyone, but especially for the kids. If you get there early you'll get dance lessons and be one of the first in line for barbeque. So, to paraphrase a line from a great old song that's apropos to this great event... Get your boots and grab your hat, leave, your troubles on the doorstep, just direct your feet, to the sunny side of the street. See you at "The Dance". Call 760 752-5050 for information.

She was reported to be despondent. Organized searches conducted on Tuesday and Wednesday had not produced any results, then on Thursday morning a discovery was made at Inspiration Point. The vehicle was spotted about 8 a.m. Thursday some 600 feet down from the parking area'at Inspiration Point. The truck matched the description of Stephanie's and after closer inspection of the area a body was discovered that appeared to match that of Stephanie. The investigation as to what happened is ongoing, with the County Medical Examiner not having made a determination as to cause of death. Stephanie was the owner and operator of the Leg Up Ranch, a rehabilitation facility specializing in equestrian encounters with physically challenged individuals. She had been recently attempting to reestablish the ranch at a new location after a breakup in her marriage and the loss of the property where the ranch had been based. Wednesday, June 16 8am
