Fishing derby underway

The annual How Big Is Big fishing derby is here again. This fun contest will be taking place from until July 31. When you catch a nice fish in the river, take it to the Walker General Store to be registered, weighed and entered. There are always a lot of really nice prizes to be won so give it a try.

Electric problems again

In the last two weeks, Antelope Valley residents and Nevadans on the Highway 208 corridor have been subjected to power outages totaling about seven hours.

I have heard from several people who tried to find out from NV Energy/Sierra Pacific what the problem was, but they never could get an answer. After the first outage of four hours in the middle of the night, I called and was finally told that "it could be due to soil contamination." I don't know about you, but I really don't understand that answer.

Don't we pay the same rate for service? I just don't understand the problems when we are having good weather, no cars running into the poles, etc.

I guess all we can do is keep on calling them when it happens and hope that they see why we're not happy and start giving us some answers.

Mono County Supervisors

The Mono County Board of Supervisors is holding an evening meeting at the Walker Community Center, 6 p.m., Tuesday, July 21. They will discuss any of their agenda items that deal with the Antelope Valley and welcome any comments or suggestions you might have for them about our area.

Thrift store hours

The Walker Thrift Store will now be open on Monday from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., through the summer months. Recycling will not be available on Mondays, but the folks at the store will be glad to help you with any thrift donations you have for the store or purchase you would like to make.

July 4th

The Antelope Valley Lions Club did their usual great job at the holiday parade held in Bridgeport last Saturday, with their trailer decorated and members handing out flags to the spectators. That evening, they cooked and served a wonderful western barbecue before the concert at Bridgeport Ranch and Barns. They do all of this to raise funds for their scholarships and other good works around our area. Thank you, guys.
