About MH. Lindsey
Born in Los Angeles, California, my family moved me to the San Bernardino Mountains when I was 3 years old. My father was a self employed heavy equipment operator then, and we lived in Running Springs. Ample work was found excavating for foundations, septic fields and roads. In the winter, he would plow snow. Later, when the sewer system was created across the mountain, he continued working setting lines. I attending the schools in the Rim Unified School District. At the then Running Springs Elementary School (K-6), we had a small population of children and some avid skiers for teachers. We all participated in the winter ski program held at Snow Valley, where all of the children learned to ski and many went on to race and attends some of the Olympic events.
I was among the last class to attend Rim High School from 7-12. After high school I moved to Oregon but only lasted there about 4 months because it was so difficult to find a good paying job and go to school - I was trying to attend Lewis & Clark in Portland. Moved again to San Diego to attend UCSD, but was robbed so many times I was forced to move home. So I settled down in Cedar Glen, got a job at Mountains Community Hospital and worked there for over 10 years. I attended San Bernardino Valley College and got a license to practice nursing in California.
I like the mountain, each area is different and that is what I love about it. I’ve lived in Rim Forest, Cedar Glen, Deer Lodge Park, Twin Peaks, Lake Arrowhead and Crestline/Lake Gregory. I’ve been here now for over 50 years and I tend to like how it was before so many flatlanders came here and set up shop…but you have to have a heart for people who want to get out of the hateful cities. Again - I just wish they would leave their city mentality in the cities when they move here and start thinking about this beautiful land and how special it really is.
