Almost 350 men, women and children from the Eastern Sierra and beyond gathered last weekend to show their moral and financial support for cancer victims far and wide.
A sea of pink â€“ balloons, streamers, T-shirts, hats â€“ greeted spectators and participants of Eastern Sierra Breast Cancer Allianceâ€™s 10th Annual 5K Walk/10K Fun Run at the Bishop City Park on Saturday.
The feathers are still up in the air, but preliminary results show that chickens will be coming home to roost in the City of Bishop.
As of Wednesday morning, the Inyo County Elections Office said that Measure C, dubbed the â€śChicken Measure,â€ť received 474 â€śYesâ€ť votes over 338 â€śNoâ€ť votes in Tuesdayâ€™s election.
California voters elected Jerry Brown as governor, shot down the legalization of marijuana via Proposition 19 and voted against Proposition 21 that adds an $18 surcharge for vehicle licensing to help support state parks.
Inyo County residents, however, would have elected Meg Whitman as governor and defeated the vehicle licensing fees proposition.
In most cases, Inyo Countyâ€™s election results differed from the state as a whole, with local residents favoring Republican candidates while the statewide majority of the votes going to Democratic candidates in most races.
