Sadden to hear of the recent passing of Michael Picardi. He served on the Diversity DHS board as one of the founders and served on the city's Community and Culture Affairs Commission. Rest in Peace my friend.

Yesterday, we honored Christian Ruiz, George Ruiz, Jasmine Teegarden, Jessica Padilla, lifeguards of the John Furbee Aquatics Center, for their outstanding service and heroic actions on June 12th, 2021, which resulted in saving a life.

Congrats to our very own Hannah Wagstaff, Andrea Frisque, Irann Orozco and Allison Keenan of local mixed martial arts studio, Kihon MMA, champions of the international tournament in Bulgaria.  You're putting Desert Hot Springs on the map!
