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.

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.
Dion Agee of Crowley Lake was selected in mid-November by Horizon Publications to take over day-to-day operations of The Inyo Register, one of two newspapers owned in California by the corporation.
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.

Blum, Morgenstein ready to serve

December 7, 2012

As Bishop’s newest ambassadors, Kristina Blum and Indica Morgenstein will spend the next year representing the local community as Miss City of Bishop and Miss Teen Bishop, respectively.
Of the field of six contestants, judges said they selected Blum and Morgenstein as Bishop’s queens because they most embodied the qualities pageant organizers were looking for – good role-models and motivated young women with a drive to serve their community.
Both girls were crowned Friday, Nov. 30, at the first ever Miss City of Bishop and Miss Teen Bishop Beauty Pageant at Whiskey Creek in Bishop.
