Rusty Gregory knows people are not happy with him for closing June Mountain.
In the end, facing a loss of an average of $1.5 million a year, that wasnât enough to stop him.
âPersonally, Iâm incredibly disappointed as well,â he said. âI realize that the people in June are shocked and very disappointed, and angry with me. But the idea of subsidizing June without a view of an end result is not sustainable.â
He also said skier visits have gone from an average of 80,000 per season to 45,000 last season.
There is no shortage of gloom in June Lake.
When Mammoth Mountain Ski Area announced last week (June 21) that it would close down the June Mountain ski area at least until the end of the 2012-13 ski season, the reaction was swift and tense.
âI think itâs been pretty clear the entire eight years since I was elected that this is exactly what I have been working to avoid,â said June Lakeâs county supervisor, Vikki Bauer.
Ceremonial speeches, bilingual blessings and cutting of a custom-made cake ushered in a new era for Northern Inyo Hospital at the grand opening of its recently completed medical facility Sunday, July 1. The community surged throughout the facility, taking photos, asking questions of the myriad NIH staff present, and oohing and aahing at the latest in medical technology.
County leaders got in another heated discussion regarding the controversial proposal to construct a new consolidated office facility in Bishop.
Inyo County Administrative Officer Kevin Carunchio asked the Board of Supervisors Tuesday to extend an exclusive negotiating agreement contract with Joseph Enterprises to allow county staff more time to review designs for the building.
As part of the non-binding exclusive negotiating agreement, Joseph Enterprises has been meeting with county department heads to evaluate space needs for the various county offices.
After the wind died down on June 25, action at South Lake returned to a wide open bite for most anglers with limits the rule. It was surprisingly quiet up at the lake until Thursday when folks started showing up in force to take advantage of the excellent fishing.
The Department of Fish and Game stocked some real quality rainbows this week making for some happy anglers and heavier than average stringers. Best fish of the week was a 5-lb., 8-oz. trophy caught by Mike Goodwin of Glendora on a nightcrawler.
Whateverâs Clever/Sierra Reader stayed on top of the Menâs Division of the Bishop Adult Softball League with a 9-5 win over West Bishop. Rapid fire bats and even faster defense kept West Bishop at bay through six-and-a-half innings.
