I receive regular reports from CalTrans about the status of travel past High Point, and this week’s report said that we will be subject to up to 20-minute delays and pilot car over the project this week. I would be inclined to think that it will be longer, so be sure to plan the delay into your trips to town. A couple of days ago, I counted 111 cars going north while I was waiting in line to get home. Since we are into summer travel time, I would be surprised if the numbers are less for a while. The CalTrans report also said that the project should be complete by the end of July. I sure hope so.
Support student fundraiser
Coleville High School students have the opportunity to go to Washington, D.C., in April, 2014, for the Close Up Program. This lets them get an inside look at the nation’s capital city and the government. They will get to interact with the people and things that make the city so unique. The students are raising money to pay for the trip, and the community can help them. Just donate your recyclable aluminum cans and plastic bottles to the school. There is a recycle bin by the middle school to leave them in, and if you can’t get them there, call (530)495-2231 for someone to pick them up. Amerigas is also supporting the fundraising by donating money to the school, based on gallons of gas purchased. Your bill has a Community/School Days Receipt on it. Drop it off at either the school or Amerigas.
ATV Jamboree a success
Based on the number of vehicles at the local motels, restaurants and stores, you could tell that a large number of people came to enjoy the Jamboree. All reports I have heard say that a great time was had by all. Congratulations to the Northern Mono Chamber of Commerce for making this happen for our community. If you are an ATVer, try to participate next year.
