County leaders continue look back at 2012

January 4, 2013

In offering recent year-end reviews of 2012 county operations, more than a dozen department heads and elected officials spotlighted accomplishments that ranged from seemingly small victories to major realignments to simply continuing to deliver a high level of services and programs in the face of tight budgets.

Sierra snowpack looking good

January 4, 2013

Just three days into the new year and state officials say a healthy-looking Sierra snowpack – with above-average stores of water west of Bishop – could mean an ample water supply for millions of Californians this spring and summer.

A promising spring runoff for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power might not be out of the question, either.
