Sierra Conservation Project keeping recyclable material out of local landfills

June 19, 2012

When Brian Robinette moved to the Eastern Sierra 10 years ago looking for a new business venture, he noticed that recycling opportunities were scarce in Inyo and Mono counties.
And when the urban refugee launched Sierra Conservation Project in response to that need, “It was just me and a pickup truck,” said Robinette.
Since then, the residential and commercial recycling subscription service has grown from a one-pickup-truck enterprise to a small recycling truck capable of a 20-house haul to a large truck that services 100 homes at a time.

Farewell to a friend

June 19, 2012

When American science-fiction writer Ray Bradbury died June 5 at the age of 91, his passing was mourned not only by fans and friends the world over, but also by a loyal cadre of Eastern Sierra residents and local graduates who are feeling the loss on a personal level.
Widely known and acclaimed as the author of 27 novels and more than 600 short stories, Bradbury was also a friend to the Owens Valley – sharing a mutual admiration and affection for its people as well as an appreciation for its wild places.
