Council weighs mixed bag

June 15, 2011

Monday’s Bishop City Council meeting was an eclectic mix of air tanks, Farmer’s Market bureaucracy, the skate community, parking on Short Street and the Beatles.
Newly-sworn Eagle Scout Giacomo Timbrello was recognized by the council with a commendation for his accomplishments. Timbrello in turn wanted to thank the council with a rendition of “Blackbird” by the Beatles. His solo guitar strumming and vocals brought smiles to many, if not all, in the audience. He was there with his family, including his little sister, Anastasia. “She’s radical,” Timbrello told the council.

“The relief efforts are on-going,” said the Reverend Dr. Karen Moore of the Big Pine Methodist Church on June 6. Moore was accepting donations from the Bishop Youth Football League and Bishop Waste Disposal.
