A brisk wind blowing across the Antelope Valley forms spray from sprinklers watering trim, green lawns. Three-year-old saplings contrast with the nearby desert and sage brush. The location is a 202-unit apartment development for senior citizens in Lancaster by Martin Luther Homes, Inc., believed by its president, the Rev. John G. Simmons, to be the only project of its kind in California. The development is a solution to the high cost of living for elderly couples with limited income, the pastor said."
