This week’s Valley Home News leads off with the news received that Bob Yuskaitis our Valley Home friend and dedicated Neighborhood Watch Patrolman for our community was involved in a serious automobile accident on February 11th while crossing Highway 120 at Pioneer Avenue. It appears he was driving home after an evening patrol and his and another vehicle collided, with his car rolled and he received serious, multiple injuries. He is recuperating in a facility in Modesto. The residents of the Greater Valley Home Area wish Bob Yuskailis a full recovery.

There is a new painted double-yellow line on Lone Tree Road from the county line to Steinegul Road. The entire stretch is now a no passing zone. You have to accept this action as a step in the right direction as it can be just the beginning for more safety rules for Lone Tree Road. Sometimes these county regulations take a while to show their worth. Presumably, the county is trying to curb the multitude of bad driving behavior in this corridor.
Our Valley Home 4-H’ers had a wonderful time and were financially successful at their annual Box Social. Goodies of every kind were auctioned off. A special thank goes to Gary Lewis who acted as our auctioneer. Helping him with the auction were ring men Sam Fletcher, Conner and Colin McKinzie, Cody Bartholomew and Jacob Nunes. Next up for the 4-H is their Tri-Tip Dinner on March 16th as mentioned above. Proceeds will benefit the Valley Home 4-H Club and also individuals selling tickets for their trip to Disneyland in April.
