Overcrowded housing in Yosemite National Park could become an economic boon to Lee Vining, if a plan to put park employee housing at the lower end of the canyon at the current forest service site there goes forward.
But thatâ€™s only if the project is designed to environmental and aesthetic problems, according to Lee Vining residents who attended a meeting Wednesday night on the subject.
One business owner, who wished to remain anonymous, said the mood of the 30 or so residents at the meeting was â€ścautiously optimistic.â€ť
â€¨The Mammoth Husky volleyballers went the distance against Vasquez on Saturday, but fell short in a five-game match at Mammoth High School.
And it wasnâ€™t just in games â€“ it was in the closeness of the scores.
The Huskies, coming off a quick, three-game victory over Desert Christian on Friday night, took the first game against Vasquez, 25-17 but dropped the next two, 22-25 and 12-25.
â€śI think we were surprised at how well Vasquez played,â€ť said coach Megan Guffy. â€śTheyâ€™ve certainly improved since the last time we played them, and it caught us off guard.â€ť
The Mammoth Huskies return home tonight after what seems much longer than two weeks on the road.
And this time, they play against a team whose name does not begin with â€śB.â€ť
That may not seem like a big deal, but after the Huskies lost to the Bishop Broncos, 59-6, two weeks ago, and 50-6 to the Boron Bobcats last week, a name like Lucerne Valley has a nice ring to it.
The Huskies, 2-3 on the year and 0-1 in conference, play the 1-4 Mustangs tonight in a 7 p.m. game at Gault/McClure Stadium, with the junior varsity game set for 4 oâ€™clock.
Rumors that the endangered Lahontan cutthroat trout will not be stocked on the Mono County-owned Conway Ranch are just that, rumors, according to county economic development director Dan Lyster.
Lyster said plans to stock the ranch with 10,000 trout are still in place, even after rumors circulated throughout the fishing community that the ranch had been left off the list of state-approved stocking designations.
The rumors came from a Fish and Wildlife Service permit that mistakenly did not specifically state Conway as a destination for the fish.
