    Your neighbors: Meet Luke, Good Samaritan

    Luke Iverson and family

    You saw the post the other day, the one where Mary Kolbe wrote about the Good Samaritan who helped when her car broke down at Jackson Road and the North Gate? The good neighbor drove home to the South, got tools, and addressed her car’s problem. She wanted to thank him, but she only knew his name as Luke. Well, meet Luke and Tara Iverson and their kids, Harper, 4; Hayden, 2; and Hudson, 9 months. They’ve lived in Murieta for a year. Luke, who’s an accountant with Aerojet, says he usually has repair tools in the car, and this wasn’t his first roadside rescue. He explained, “I would hope at some point in time in my life that, if I get stuck, in a situation where I can’t physically do it myself, that someone would stop for me as well.” He added, “Not that it’s a religious thing, but I happen to be a Christian, and so the opportunity to help a fellow either resident, neighbor – you never know when you’re going to have the opportunity to impact somebody’s life.” (Photo supplied by Iverson family)

    The Halloween Championship Show at Murieta Equestrian Center marked its 17th year this weekend, and the Saturday night costume contest for riders and their horses brought out the Halloween spirit in everyone as different age groups competed for the grand prize of $500. The first group, age 7 and under, set the pace with a princess on a unicorn/pony, a bumblebee boy atop a flower garden, and other exotic creations. A mermaid with a tail of glowing green lights took first place honors in the group. (Click photo for larger image.)
