Itâs time to get in touch with the vertical world this spring while reading the latest Community Reads project for Inyo County, âBetween a Rock and a Hard Place,â by Aron Ralston.
The book chronicles Ralstonâs unintended five-day stay in a canyon in Utah after slipping and getting his arm wedged beneath a giant boulder in 2003. Ralston, knowing he would die if he did not escape his rocky captor, made the eventual decision to amputate his arm with a Leathermanâs utility tool and walk back to civilization.
For an unknown reason, Southern California Edison is delaying the connection of multiple solar projects to the stateâs grid, including those at Death Valley and Mono Lake.
Multiple solar projects have been installed at dozens of state parks and recreation areas as part of federal mandates to be more energy-efficient. And although most have been approved and accepted with other utilities, SCE has more than two dozen systems waiting to go on the grid â some for as long as three years.
County leaders will be getting off to an early start this morning for this weekâs meeting of the Inyo County Board of Supervisors.
The board will convene at 8 a.m. for public comment before adjourning to closed session to discuss the appointment of a new Public Works Director and enter into wage and benefits negotiations with the candidate.
The board will reconvene in open session at approximately 10 a.m. to take up the regular agenda.

Unseasonably warm weather and little moisture this winter has raised some concerns among residents about tourism, fire hazards and possible drought.
Weather forecasters predict rain in Bishop for the coming weekend, but with the warm weather, will the moisture be enough?
According to the Los Angeles Department of Water and Powerâs snowpack report, the 2011-12 winter has been among the driest on record, with only 2.3 inches of snow in the Mammoth Pass area as of early January.
That number is right in line with the driest year on record, 1976-77.
Inyo Countyâs registered voters will visit polling places twice this year, with local supervisorial seats and other open public offices coming with the June 5 Primary Election and the Nov. 6 Presidential Election.
Several prospective candidates and incumbents have taken out election papers, specifically Petitions for Signatures in Lieu of Filing Fees. This does not mean the political hopefuls will be on the ballot in June, but rather that at this point they have shown interest in running for the respective positions.
