Fate of Darwin Post Office up in air

December 12, 2012

Residents in Darwin learned earlier this month that the U.S. Postal Service will be suspending operations at their local post office, forcing them to retrieve their mail 25 miles away in Keeler, in a region of the county that does not have public transportation.
In a letter mailed to Darwin residents Nov. 30, the USPS said the Darwin Post Office, located at 251 Reddy St., will be suspended effective Monday, Dec. 31 because “lease negotiations with the current landlord have failed and attempts to locate a suitable new location within the city limits of Darwin have been unsuccessful.”

New CEO for Register

December 7, 2012

Inyo County’s hometown newspaper is entering the holiday season, and looking to the future, with a new publisher at its helm.

Agee replaced Carol Ross, who resigned as publisher in September in order to relocate out of state.
And while Agee may be new to the Register team, he is by no means a stranger to Inyo or Mono counties.
