Linda Kay Bostrom Marks
Linda Bostrom Marks, born in Salt Lake City in 1943, passed away at Salem Hospital in Oregon, a month after a serious illness put her in the hospital. She battled the devastating c. def bacteria but it left her too weak to make a comeback and she slipped away from us on June 11, 2013. She was the third of four children born to Al and â€śBinkâ€ť Bostrom and grew up with her older siblings Dan and Sandie, in Darwin, Manzanar and Lone Pine. At age 13 she found herself replaced as the baby of the family when her younger sister, Shawn, was born.
In response to the extremely high, potentially life-threatening temperatures expected this weekend, local officials have collaborated to have â€ścooling centersâ€ť and other disaster relief services at the ready.
Working on the effort are Inyo County Sheriffâ€™s Department, Health and Human Services and the office of County Administrator Kevin Carunchio, the county disaster services coordinator.
Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power have reached an agreement on how to control dust on the Keeler Dunes and one of the last stretches of Owens Lake targeted for dust control.
An agreement that was approved this week by both the LADWP and Great Basin will allow Los Angeles to work around certain culturally-sensitive sites identified within the Phase 7a dust mitigation project. The LADWP and Great Basin will determine if and how dust will be mitigated in areas containing Native American artifacts at a later date.
