Just before the bubble burst in 2008, the Lucerne Valley area's net assessed valuation was almost nearly $800 million. Today it's just $687 million, but that's better than it was during the doldrums.

"We still aren't there yet," Bob Dutton, the assessor-recorder-county clerk of San Bernardino County, said last Thursday. "We have a ways to go."

Dutton shared his observations during the monthly meeting of the Lucerne Valley Johnson Valley Municipal Advisory Council at the Community Center.
