A cross-country trip on U.S. 6 will bring travelers through a number of small towns and across even more scenic stops, but, according to Malerie Yolen-Cohen, Inyo Countyâ€™s attractions have been some of the best so far.
Yolen-Cohen, a Stamford, Conn. resident and travel writer, is making the trip from Provincetown, Mass. to Long Beach, the traditional beginning and end of U.S. 6. Along the way, she has been blogging about her adventures.
The geothermal project in Southern Inyo County has had its credit rating reduced due to lowered energy capacity and output, and mounting debt.
Fitch Ratings has downgraded Coso Geothermalâ€™s rating from a â€śB+â€ť to â€śB.â€ť
According to Standard and Poorâ€™s, another credit rating firm, â€ścredit ratings are not investment advice, or buy, hold, or sell recommendations. They are just one factor investors may consider in making investment decisions.â€ť
Fun, friends and fireworks are just some of the attractions residents will find at the Eastern Sierra Regional Airport in Bishop this year as the Bishop Volunteer Fire Departments hosts its annual Independence Day fireworks show.
Itâ€™s a celebration that almost wasnâ€™t this year, when the department considered cancelling the traditional festivities due to budget and manpower concerns â€“ essentially the drain the show puts on both.
In the end, and hoping the community will pitch in with gate fees and donations, the volunteer firefighters decided the show must go on.
