Predictions call for another wet winter

October 10, 2011

Winter weather predictions for 2011 are not in line with historic models, indicating the Eastern Sierra could be in for another unusually wet winter this season and a snow line that could be as high as last year’s.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association has released a La Niña Advisory, as part of the El Niño Southern Oscillation Diagnostic Discussion issued by the Climate Prediction Center.
2010 was a La Niña weather pattern year and the 2011-12 winter season looks to be another La Niña year.

Community asked to unite against domestic violence

October 10, 2011

Perhaps a previously fashion-forward coworker has taken to wearing long-sleeved shirts and pants in warm weather. Or a once outgoing student has become withdrawn, sullen and even combative on the playground. Maybe a client shows up for a haircut appointment wearing a hat, underneath which there are clear signs clumps of her hair have been yanked from her scalp. Or perhaps there’s been constant yelling and sounds of things breaking from the apartment or house next door ever since that seemingly loving couple moved in.

Fruits of grant to be unveiled at fundraiser

October 6, 2011

The lights are bright, the acting superb, the story is engaging – then a singer’s microphone picks up the hum of a fax machine from the neighboring office, or the sound is too loud in one seat yet inaudible in another, or the sound goes out all together.
