Wow, what a week!
A thousand pounds of fish from Department of Fish and Game on Aug. 1 and then last Friday, here comes the stock truck again with another 1,500 pounds of fish. We were all doing the woo-hoo dance - thatâ€™s a lotta fish!

County leaders approved a proposal to add some additional security to the Eastern Sierra Transit motor pool.
Last Tuesday, Interim Public Works Director Doug Wilson said there is funding available through the Local Transportation Commission to construct security lighting and fencing at ESTAâ€™s headquarters at the county-operated Eastern Sierra Regional Airport.
The board approved a proposal in February that would have provided the lighting, however, with a fast approaching grant deadline for the funding, no bids were submitted for the project.
A massive truck hauling spent nuclear machinery will be passing through Inyo County on a 21-day journey from San Onofre to Clive, Utah. The super load measures 399 feet long, 20 feet wide and more than 16 feet tall with 200 or so tires, consisting of a trailer weighing more than one million pounds and three trucks.
The loads are reportedly the heaviest in California history. This trip is the first of four scheduled for this year.
Linda Louise Morse

There are small notebooks, or sometimes just a few bits of paper, and a writing utensil, stuffed into a can or box of some sort at the highest point of nearly every mountain in the Sierra Nevada and beyond. These summit registers are a record of the peakâ€™s visitors, considered historical documents by some.
Unfortunately, the registers have become a target for thieves.
The local public transportation system is growing â€“ slowly, and sometimes painfully, but it is growing.
Amid funding shortages and other setbacks â€“ such as a delay in delivery of vehicles for the Reds Meadow shuttle program and increasing fuel costs â€“ the organization will have to cut some services but will retain its workforce. It is also asking less of its member agencies than it has in the past to get over this time of yearâ€™s financial hump.
District 9 California High School Rodeo received this week one of the largest donations in the districtâ€™s history â€“ from a local employees union.

According to LADWP Store Keeper Adele Pratt, the donation is a direct result of employees with the department wanting to give back to the community.
