Big Bear Comes Together for Boys High School Soccer

Big Bear, CA, April 14, 2015 – At a reception at Jay and Heather Obernolte’s home on Saturday, April 11, a group of dedicated parents, students, and others saw their dream of a High School boys soccer team become a reality. A few months ago, some folks had the idea to create a soccer team for the boys at BBHS and started the process of raising the $25,000 needed to field a team for the 2015/2016 season. Soon the Lighthouse Project joined the effort and the word started getting out to the community. Local realtors started the ball rolling with donations totaling $3,000. The Rojas family hosted Taco Day at Sonora Cantina and raised $4,000. The soccer boys held a car wash and made $1,200 and Hacienda Grill raised $4,000 with the sale of ‘soccer balls’. $2,760 was received in mailed donations and Bruce and Kim Voight pledged $2,000 if and when they reached $23,000. Going into the evening of the reception at the  Obernoltes, there was $8,040 remaining to be raised. As people arrived at the gathering, another $3,000 was raised, leaving just over $5,000 to go. After thanking the community and those present for their generous support, Big Bear Lake Mayor Pro Tem Bill Jahn introduced Assemblyman Jay Obernolte who welcomed guests to his home and stated that he and his wife Heather would donate $1,000 to...

The village project was previously scuttled by Governor Brown as part of his efforts to help rescue the states red ink budget by killing improvement agencies statewide. Mayor Jahn explained that the project must be completed by June of 2013, but that City Engineer David Lawrence believes that is attainable.  In total 2.4 million will be available with an additional 1.2 million waiting in the wings if other projects are unable to meet next years deadline.  Because of the looming deadline, the village renaissance project was a perfect local  project, as the planning was previously completed and the project contractor Matich is prepared to begin construction as soon as the snow begins to clear in the spring.   Big Bear Village Project by Mike Evans...
