Weekly News Roundup: June 23 Edition

It's been pretty quiet the last week (other than the sonic booms). Maybe it's the heat?

According to the San Bernardino Sun, a second San Gorgornio High School teen, David Rivera, died from injuries in last week's crash on Oak Glen Road. Adrian Barajas died at the scene.

Congratulations to this week's graduates:
The Press-Enterprise profiles Steve and Friends (12033 4th St.), a family-run hair salon that opened in Yucaipa 41 years ago. They plan to have a web site soon!
The salon supports community programs by donating hair cutting and styling services to women re-entering the work force after completing rehabilitation programs. It also participates in the annual Relay for Life cancer fundraising walk.
Art students at Canyon Middle School - under direction of art teacher Mike Bennett - paineted a mural featuring Presidents Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Kennedy and Reagan. See the article in the Press Enterprise for a photo of their excellent work.

Yucaipa High School named this year's athletes of the year seniors Brett Roy and Cortney Kivett. Roy played football, earning "first-team All-League honors" , basketball, and track. Kivett played basketball, volleyball and softball. She led last year's softball team in hitting, and almost repeated the feat this year. She and her twin sister Ashley will be playing for the University of Oregon Ducks next year. There was no mention of Roy's post-high school plans.

The News Mirror calls 10-year-old Kyle Gornay "the most amazing swimmer in town."
Gornay went on this spring to win not one but five events in the Southern California Short Course Junior Olympic Championships at the Belmont Plaza in Long Beach. Gornay took first place in his age group in five races: the 50-yard freestyle, the 100-yard freestyle, the 50-yard butterfly, the 100-yard butterfly and the 50-yard backstroke.
Kyle swims for the Redlands Swim Team, even though he is a resident of Yucaipa. The News-Mirror is hoping he'll be swimming for the Thunderbirds in a few years.
