Mule Days event organizers announced Tuesday that concert headliner Terri Clark has cancelled her May 24 appearance at the Tri-County Fairgrounds.
âItâs our understanding Ms. Clark cancelled four West Coast appearances in May, including ours, due to scheduling conflicts,â Barbara Laughon, Bishop Mule Days spokesman, said. âWhile naturally this is a disappointment, we are in talks with another nationally-recognized vocalist who is willing to step in at this late date.â
Phase one of the Warren Street Improvements project â conceived to functionally and aesthetically rejuvenate and expand Bishopâs commercial district â is under way and City of Bishop Public Works Department is actively soliciting public input.
Two separate fires in Big Pine Saturday destroyed two separate homes, one on Hill Street and a second at the end of West Street in an area known as Indian Camp.
According to Big Pine Volunteer Fire Department Chief John Marzano, Big Pine firefighters were just mopping up after the home fire on Hill Street when the call came in at about 4:30 p.m. for a second structure fire on West Street.
Officials with CalFire are looking into the cause of the structure fire at Indian Camp although no foul play is suspected, according to the chief.
