Mammoth is not the only place in the county facing increasing bear problems these days, as the dry summer forces hungry bears out of the woods and into human communities.

Walker residents found that out first hand recently, when they tried to drop off their garbage at the county dump.

August 17, 2012

The Gateway ‘Welcome’ project is $108,395 over budget estimates, but it still is moving forward.

Construction could begin as early as September for the two signs on both sides of S.R. 203 after the Town Council Wednesday evening approved more public art funds to the project.
