Breastfeeding is a home run

To celebrate August as World Breastfeeding Month, three local programs teamed to offer a first-ever event in Southern Inyo.

The theme for the walk was “Be an All-Star and Hit a Home Run – Breastfeed!”

Cervantes endorses Gentry

September 6, 2012

Fifth District Supervisor Richard Cervantes said he is endorsing candidate Jim Gentry in his race for a seat on the board next month.
In the June Primary, Cervantes ran against challengers Gentry and Matt Kingsley. None of the candidates generated the required 50 percent, plus one, of the votes to avoid a run-off, and, as Cervantes received the least amount of votes, he will not be on the November Ballot.
In response to questions he said he received from constituents, Cervantes said he took a hard look at both candidates before endorsing Gentry.

Discovery in Switzerland confirms work being done in Owens Valley

September 4, 2012

In late July, the national news touted the discovery of the “God particle,” the missing link in the study of particle physics.
The confirmation of the Higgs boson came with a 0.00006 percent caveat; in lay terms, a very slim chance the scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland were wrong.
The Higgs boson, as explained in a Los Angeles Times article, is “the long-sought elementary particle that gives mass to the universe.”

Celebration of pioneer-era Inyo returns this Saturday

September 4, 2012

Laws Railroad Museum will once again be wrapping up the summer with a celebration of days gone by, a simpler time when items used daily were hand-crafted and virtually everyone had a unique trade.
Laws will host its Good Ole Days celebration this Saturday with more than a dozen demonstrators practicing unique trades, local nonprofit groups such as Rotary and Girl Scouts providing food and the Idle Hands String Band performing live.
The event is open to the public and offered free of charge.
