To protect and serve … & spread holiday cheer

December 12, 2012

With their squad car lights flashing and sirens wailing, Eastern Sierra law enforcement officers will be rounding up scores of minors this weekend – but these kids aren’t delinquents. Rather, the raucous round-up will mark the return of a special day of holiday fun for the officers and more than 20 lucky youngsters.
Door-to-door service, a hot breakfast, a shopping spree and a snap shot on Santa’s knee are all part of the Second Annual Shop with a Cop event being held this Saturday, Dec. 15 in Bishop.

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.”

Tree removal on hold in Independence

December 10, 2012

Independence residents rallied to the cry of a chainsaw last week when crews hired by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power began cutting down several trees in their community.
Residents said the LADWP had no right to remove the trees because they are located on county property adjacent to a City of Los Angeles parcel in Independence.

Pond rehabilitation project continues

December 10, 2012

Crews from the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power are beginning the second phase of a habitat improvement project east of Bishop.
The LADWP has drained and will be burning Rawson Pond No. 1, just south of Buckley Pond, this week to remove an excess growth of tules. With the pond burned, a group of community volunteers will meet early next month to dredge and rebuild the pond beds, making it an ideal fishery for anglers and a comfortable habitat for trout, bass, catfish and blue gills.
