I am concerned about misinformation and misleading information being circulated by county officials.
But first, I want you to know upfront that I am the daughter of the Library Director. If this fact makes you doubt my words, then I’d rather you know right away than realize it later.

Summer is official on June 21, but if you asked the high country lakes it got here a week or two ago. Over the past week I have been hiking high passes and Piute and Bishop pass lakes are all ice-free, at last. The fish in these high country lakes are hungry and offering up some real consistent fishing.
CruiseShip Volunteers and SR2 will both be performing for the first Sierra Solstice Celebration from 5-10 p.m. this Saturday at Mill Creek Station, nine miles north of Bishop off U.S. Highway 395. The venue is owned by Mary Lou Long and Roger Derryberry, who have put a lot of effort into turning it into a viable cultural center for the area, and both groups are excited to have the opportunity to perform on Mill Creek Station’s uniquely beautiful outdoor stage at the base of a historical rock quarry.
This Tuesday (today), the Board of Supervisors will hear six funding options for the Inyo County Free Library and the Eastern California Museum. I support the roadmap option prepared by the library director to fund the Inyo County Free Library at 2012-13 levels and to continue to fund the Eastern California Museum at existing levels.
