Winter food donations sought

September 27, 2011

Inyo County’s food banks and others are getting ready for what is expected to be a huge demand for holiday food baskets and, for many, a meal to get themselves and maybe their family through the day.
Inyo Mono Advocates for Community Action will begin accepting applications for the Holiday Food Basket Program next Wednesday, Oct. 5. The program provides holiday meal essentials to low-income households throughout Inyo County, Chalfant and Benton. The holiday food drive, set to begin in November, is also IMACA’s major drive to keep its food bank shelves full until the spring.

Intellectual freedoms celebrated

September 27, 2011

J.D. Salinger’s popular “The Catcher in the Rye” is considered requisite reading by both scholars and literary snobs, and locally, the community came together to read and discuss Sherman Alexie’s work “The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian.”
However, if the censors had their way, those books would have been banned from the shelves of libraries, classrooms and even book stores.
The efforts to ban books such as “Catcher” and “Part Time Indian,” and ultimately the triumph of the First Amendment, are in focus Sept. 24 through Oct. 1 as the U.S. observes National Banned Books Week.

Grant will help preserve Tribe’s Cultural Center

September 27, 2011

One of Bishop’s most important cultural resources is getting some financial aid from Southern California Edison.
According to Emma Williams of the Bishop Paiute Tribe, SCE has awarded a $10,000 grant for restoration of the Owens Valley Paiute Shoshone Cultural Center on West Line Street in Bishop.
Williams said the Edison grant will be used to install a new security system.
“The whole grant will probably go to the new electric security system, which we hope to have up next month,” Williams said. “There are also ongoing projects, like archiving and updating the database.”
