Think local this holiday shopping season

November 20, 2012

Big-box retailers have Black Friday, Internet companies have Cyber Monday and, for the past couple years, the little guy has had its own post-Thanksgiving/specially-designated shopping day to boost that bottom line before the end of the year.
Nationwide, Nov. 24 will be recognized as Small Business Saturday, a day where locally-owned, mom-and-pop shops are encouraged to offer their best deals and residents looking to get a jump on their holiday shopping are encouraged to patronize independently-owned businesses.

Wye Rd. project focused on safety

November 20, 2012

A City of Bishop Public Works improvement project, designed to increase public safety by decreasing the potential for traffic accidents, is nearing the breaking-ground stage.
The Wye Road Intersection Improvement Project is designed to improve the Wye Road and North Main Street/U.S. 6 intersection, said Public Works Director David Grah. The project was conceived to make the intersection safer, he explained, an intersection that saw about 2,200 vehicles per day in 2007. “The City Council is anxious to get this project constructed.”

Contractors group, Chamber won’t be merged

November 20, 2012

The Owens Valley Contractor and Vendors Association last week rejected an idea to consolidate with the Bishop Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Bureau but agreed to take the lead in organizing the Tri-County Fair Home Show.
