“I’m not sure how to work this suction-cup mount,” Fido said.
“Well, it’s not going to fit on the end of your snout. That’s just a hunch, but I think it’s a good one.”
“Fido, just what in the world are you doing?”
“I have a new GoSniff, but I can’t get it to work right.”
“GoSniff? What in the world is a GoSniff?”

Chamber Music Unbound presents the second program of the season, “Mr. Clarinet,” featuring the resident Felici Trio and the principal clarinetist of the Israel Philharmonic, Ron Selka.

After three years of planning, Digital 395 crews were set to hit the area south of Mammoth this week, officials said.
“The plowing and boring south of Mammoth along 395 will be quite visible to the locals and there will be some heavy equipment for sure,” said Michael Ort, the private developer for the huge, 563-mile-long high-speed broadband digital cable installation project.
“They start this week along that section (near McGee Creek), moving south toward Bishop,” he said.
The nurses are being celebrated for their dedication and skills the first week of November.
Medical-surgical nurses focus every day on caring compassionately for patients and families so the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) has designated a week to shift that focus to the nurses themselves.

Mammoth Hospital upgraded to a new medical imaging technology, which offers the latest advances in low radiation dose imaging.
In the past, radiology technologists had to use standard radiation doses to get high diagnostic image quality. Now, technologists can use cutting edge computer technology to create quality images from low radiation dose scans.
Plunging one sandaled foot into the knee-deep snow, the other sliding on icy slush and mud, tired from the last two hours of the same, I was starting to dream about warm summer beaches.
I had climbed up this remote canyon north of Bridgeport last Saturday with the devil at my heels, running from winter, chasing gold.
A few months more than a hundred years ago, in the small French village of Megeve, a baker’s wife had a son named Emile.
In the last week, a lot of newspapers and some television news have chronicled the death of 100-year-old Emile Allais. They write about him winning two world championships in the downhill and slalom ski races in 1936 and 1937, as well as an Olympic gold medal in 1936. He would have won a third year in a row if he had not broken his ankle.
