Meet Mono County’s supervisor candidates
April 10, 2012
On Thursday, April 12, 7 p.m. at the Community Center in Walker, we will have the opportunity to hear from the three candidates running for District 4 Supervisor. The three candidates are Bob Peters, Jan Huggans, and Tim Fesko. We’ll hear their thoughts and be able to ask them questions, so it is a good opportunity to learn about them and their views before the June election. We’ll hope to see you there.
During the last week, I have had several phone calls, as well as comments when I see people out around town, regarding their unhappiness with current propane issues. This made me want to dig a little deeper and get some information we normally don’t think about. I was very surprised to learn that propane companies can charge whatever they wish for their product. We are used to having a provider in our area, but I found out that two other companies have begun serving our valley – Eagle Energy out of Reno and Universal Propane. If you are unhappy with your current price or service, you might check with all the companies to compare their offers. With a sizeable portion of our residents living on a fixed income, it becomes an important issue for all of us.
Career success for a local
The other day a very proud Nancy Boardman told me some great news about her son, Chad, who attended Antelope Elementary and Coleville High schools before going to UNR. His driving interest was always in the criminal justice field which he pursued in college and after, in Mono County and then the State of Nevada. On March 9 of this year, he was appointed by the United States District Court for the District of Nevada to be the Chief Probation Officer for the District of Nevada. It is wonderful to see someone rewarded for their love of a profession and their hard work to succeed in that field. Congratulations to Chad and his family!
Highway work coming
According to an information bulletin I received from Caltrans, work is beginning this month on the High Point Curve Correction project. The timeline given was that their installation of construction area signs and other groundwork is to be done in April. The fun is to begin in May with nightly road closures and delays during the day. Be prepared, because we will be greatly affected.
