I have seen a lot of stories on TV about Power Ball and people in other states who have won, but it has just become available in California. This will be available to try at the Walker Country Store, with the first drawing today. If you have wanted to find out about it and possibly try it, go on down to the Country Store. In addition to everything else, they now also have a snack bar with lots of good stuff, including $1 hot dogs or corn dogs on Wednesdays.
Valley fever alert
The Mono County Health Officer has sent a reminder that we are now entering Valley Fever season. The best information they can give at this time is that it gives symptoms similar to the flu and can keep you laid up for a little while. They also advised that it is possible to get some cases of it in Mono County. Please be careful.
Protect your home
With a couple of recent burglaries in our area, the Sheriff’s office is advising all of us to take certain steps to protect ourselves and our homes. They remind us to keep our homes locked and to keep an eye out for any suspicious activity. They have increased the number of deputies patrolling in the valley, but want us to call their office at (760) 932-7549 ext. 7 if we see anything suspicious. Please don’t put yourself in danger.
Thanks to the golfers
The Lions Club’s 13th Annual Cow Pasture Golf Tournament last weekend was a great success, thanks to all who participated. All proceeds go toward the scholarship fund for Coleville High graduates, in honor of Jackie Giorgi, so it is a great event to support, as well as being a lot of fun.
