A battle between five taxi/limo operators reached fever pitch Tuesday afternoon.
Sweeping panoramic vistas, evocative landscapes and cultural portraits are featured in a new guest artist exhibit at Mountain Light Gallery.
Showcasing images by Sierra photographers Vern Clevenger, Jim Stimson, Londie Padelsky, Jerry Dodrill and John Dittli, the exhibit resonates with each artist's passion for exploration and their individually distinctive dedication to living a life immersed amid natural beauty.
The players of the Sierra Classic Theatre will open s six-day run of William Shakespeareâ€™s â€śThe Tempest,â€ť beginning tonight at Samâ€™s Woodsite in Mammoth.
It is an audacious, if not tempestuous undertaking, directed by Lesley Bruns and performed under the trees at the venue.
The players ask for a $10 donation for those wishing to attend.
Although the theatre company will offer some chairs, the players ask members of the audience to bring their own chairs if they like, and a picnic.
The final say regarding June Mountain Ski Areaâ€™s destinyâ€”this coming winter and from here onâ€”lies as much with Inyo National Forest supervisor Ed Armenta as it does with MMSA CEO Rusty Gregory.
Although Gregory was the focus of much of the publicâ€™s ire at last weekâ€™s meeting between the June Lake community and Gregory, Armenta was the other real power in the room. He had just returned from his first meeting with Gregory earlier that day, July 10. Armenta said it was very clear to him how critical to the community of June Lake and to Mono County it is to keep June Mountain open.
