The Hills have ayes

December 18, 2010

Though they continue to support the Alabama Hills Stewardship Group’s efforts to have a federal designation placed over the Alabama Hills, county leaders expressed fear that legislation creating a National Scenic area will be put into an omnibus bill.
In a 4-1 vote, the board decided to send a letter of support for the Alabama Hills designation to Senator Dianne Feinstein (CA-D), who has said she would carry the bill if it had community support.

“Mammoth started on fire,” said Carrington. “They came to play. I think that was the best I’ve seen the Huskies play.”
