Local candidates are out on the campaign trail, hoping to generate as many votes as possible and win a seat of public service in November.
In Inyo County, voters will be deciding who will serve as the Fourth and Fifth district supervisors, a three City Council members.
But before residents can participate in the election, they must be sure they are registered to vote.
According to Inyo County Clerk Kammi Foote, Monday, Oct. 22 is the last day to register to vote for the Nov. 6 Presidential General Election.
Northern and Southern Inyo Hospitals are currently recruiting additional medical staff for their Rural Health Clinics and making other plans to better serve their expanding patient populations.
More than 250 restored classics, street rods and every other form of rolling artwork will be heading to Bishop the first weekend in October for the Owens Valley Cruisersâ€™ annual Fall Colors Car Show.
For these out-of-town auto enthusiasts, the show is more than a chance to pick up a trophy acknowledging the work put into the cars. Itâ€™s a chance to log miles through some impressive scenery, to check out the mountain views of aspen groves ablaze in colors nearly as bright and varied as the cars themselves.

Bishop residents met with the City Council Monday to discuss their views on the newly adopted invocation guidelines, which prohibit those from giving the invocation from using the names of specific deities, quoting scripture or referencing religious holidays.
To kick off the meeting, City Attorney Peter Tracy, who drafted the new guidelines and requested the council adopt them, gave a brief history on the first amendment and separation of church and state laws and lawsuits, to explain how and why the council adopted the new rules.
Crisp mornings and shorter days mean fall is in the air and with luck, plenty of produce that grew green in local gardens is in the cupboard. One fun way to share agricultural bounty is to bring both odd and edible produce, plus any baked, canned or pickled goods using produce from local gardens to the second annual Harvest Heritage Day at the Eastern California Museum.
