Watch for springtime visitors

My neighbor, Sara, called the other day and told me about the bear that had come to visit them. He crossed the creek, came up on their deck and stared in the window at them. This is the time of year we will see quite a bit of that with our local wildlife, so please protect yourselves and your pets from any harm.

Coed softball vs. Mono sheriffs

Saturday, May 31, the Coleville High School boys' baseball and girls' softball players will square off in a coed game with the Mono County Sheriffs. The game will take place at the high school field, at noon. The cost for adults will be $5, which includes lunch. Children under 10 will be free. This event is sponsored by the Coleville High Boosters, with proceeds going toward their good efforts for the community's young people. Try to get to the game and have a great time rooting for the kids.
