The price of “go fish”

March 6, 2013

 

It’s all about money. The local and out of town trout fishermen bring in a lot of revenue to the county, and in the process, get to relax and enjoy life.

But, there is a steep price to pay for their enjoyment.  

First of all, there is a definite opposition from the fish and wildlife biologists to trout rearing and planting.

Their philosophy is that such practices disrupt the natural balance of nature and causes big problems for the eco-system. 

As a local, I feel ripped off

Kudos to Michael Raimondo and Matt Lehman for being the only responsible council members who voted to impose the penalties and interest in regards to a home being illegally rented out nightly. 

As a local, I feel ripped off.

Yosemite

Fido & Me - No can do

March 6, 2013

 

“Road trip, Fido! Fetch your feed!”

“Oh boy, oh-boy, oh-boy. Where are we going?”

“It’s quite up to you, Fido. I have nothing on the radar that jumps out at me. But every now and then it’s good to get out of Dodge.”

“Let’s go to where it’s warm. Death Valley!”

“Um, there’s a problem with that. Can’t go to Death Valley.”

“But I’ve heard that it’s a lot better than it sounds.”

‘Community Garden’ idea blossoms throughout county

Community gardens are sprinkled along the Eastern Sierra, with one conspicuous missing link: Mammoth.
