An ongoing collaboration between the city and the community of Bishop is continuing to breathe life into a major street improvement project and now the public can get a Technicolor peek into the possible future of a new main street.
Full-color art sketches and conceptional drawings depicting how possible Warren Street Improvement Project design elements might converge for a new look at Bishopâ€™s proposed new main street are available for public viewing at City Hall and on the Public Works page at www.ca-bishop.us.
About 700 residents attended the 17th annual ICARE fundraiser dinner held last weekend at the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fairgrounds, raising $30,000 for a new county animal shelter.
Animal lovers who gathered at the event were treated to a catered dinner, live and silent auctions and raffles.
Dinner was catered by Whiskey Creek, thanks to sponsorships from Union Bank of California, Sierra Wave Media and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The meal wasÂ served by local 4-H Club members.

Two dry years in the Eastern Sierra and a Southern California Edison project that required the lake to be drained has Lake Sabrina west of Bishop looking like an alien moonscape.
Sabrina, a favorite destination in the Sierra, is currently so low that it has reverted back to being two separate natural lakes, and the smaller of the two is nearly dry.
What that means for next weekendâ€™s fishing opener remains to be seen, but Sabrina Lake Boat Landing owner Juanita Apted is optimistic.
