What is 07.12.13?

June 26, 2013

Owens Valley residents who read The Inyo Register, frequent Facebook or check out public bulletin boards have probably see it by now: 07.12.13.
And along with sightings of the digits have probably come some questions, chief among them being: “What does it mean?”
The theories have been abundant, and entertaining.
Are these lottery numbers?
Is this some sort of Dooms Day prophecy?
Is this the combination to a safe as part of some major cash giveaway?
Is Publisher Dion Agee planning to tightrope walk across the Owens River Gorge on this date?
No, these are not lottery numbers.

Dry summer means more fire restrictions

June 25, 2013

TUESDAY, JUNE 25, 2013 – A general lack of precipitation in the Eastern Sierra has led to fire and fireworks restrictions on public lands.
Effective Friday, the Bureau of Land Management-Bishop Field Office and the Inyo National Forest are implementing fire restrictions.
“Ongoing drought conditions, well below average rain and snowfall this past winter and warmer than average temperatures have led to very dry conditions for this time of year,” said INF Supervisor Ed Armenta. “We are experiencing very high fire danger and continued hot and dry weather patterns here in the eastern Sierra.”

County to repay Coso

June 21, 2013

Coso Operating Company has settled its appeal of Inyo County’s property tax assessment for 2010-12 for Coso’s geothermal plant in Southeast Inyo. The re-assessed property value means the county owes the company for taxes that were paid.
The county won’t be hit for the total $825,000 difference, as the Board of Supervisors, in response to Coso’s appeal, “impounded” $1.1 million in taxes that Coso paid on the 2010 assessment.
