Power problems still lurking

After the awful brownout and damage of July 11, we had a week and a half of normal service; but just as we were feeling comfortable again we had four power surges and an outage on the 22nd, surges the next day, and then seven outages and a surge on the 25th.

I spoke with Randy Kelly at Liberty Energy last Thursday, and he said they are working hard with NV Energy to get our problems resolved.

He also mentioned that our power source has been changed slightly to another connector, but it is still in the beginning stage of problem solving.

For those of you who had damages from any of the electrical issues, be sure to get your claim form in to Liberty Energy right away.

The loss of power alone is a major problem, but damage to your equipment is even more severe, so don't wait to start the claim process.

Local fishing

There have been ups and downs in fish catching on the river lately, but there have been some nice fish being planted by DFG and the Northern Mono Chamber of Commerce, so go out, enjoy the river and catch some fish. I spoke with Debie at the Walker General Store, and with three days left in the How Big Is Big derby, the largest fish submitted was 4 pounds 4 ounces and 22 inches long, so there are some big ones out there to be caught.

Memorial service

This Saturday, Aug. 4, 11 a.m. at the Community Center in Walker, the Celebration of Life for longtime local resident and businesswoman, Dianne Evans, will be held.

Heat relief

Local seniors, remember that if you need home cooling help, the Walker Thrift Store has some box fans available for loan to you for the summer and return to the store by Sept. 30.
