With a fraction of the budget of other counties and a display they built themselves at home, Rich and Kathy White not only took home another gold medal at the California State Fair for their Inyo County exhibit, but also one of the most important awards offered at the 17-day event.
The Whites, aided by a hearty contingent of fellow volunteers, secured for Inyo County the 2013 Peopleâ€™s Choice Award â€“ a sought-after honor thatâ€™s viewed as an endorsement of the tens of thousands of fairgoers who visit the Californiaâ€™s Counties Exhibit portion of the State Fair.
Members of the Board of Supervisors on Tuesday received the third in a trilogy of workshops regarding Inyo Countyâ€™s landfills and its overall solid waste program.
During the presentation, Deputy County Administrator and Integrated Waste Manager Pam Hennarty said that changes must be made to the countyâ€™s solid waste program to make it self-sufficient. Those changes may come in the form of increased rates, or changes to the way commercial waste haulers are regulated, or a combination of both.
This past Monday, the City of Bishop recognized and thanked local firefighters who have been among the nearly 2,000 personnel who have been braving the Aspen Fire since it was ignited by lightning last month.
