Mono County loses longtime resident

We were all sorry to learn of the passing of longtime county resident and chairman of the Mono County Board of Supervisors, Bill Reid, early on Oct. 21. There was a large gathering of friends and constituents paying their respects at the celebration of life held in his honor on Sunday in Bridgeport. Our sympathy goes to his wife, Lyn, their children and grandchildren.

Women's Club bazaar

The Antelope Valley Women's Club is holding their 42nd annual bazaar and dinner Sunday, Nov. 8, at the Walker Community Center. The bazaar will open at noon, with dinner of either roast beef or turkey available 4:30 -6:30 p.m. The dinner cost for adults is $12, with a $6 cost for children from 3 to 10 years old. As always, there will be door prizes, white elephant gifts, and raffles, including a handmade quilt by local artist Ann Brumley. All proceeds will go to support the memorial scholarship fund at Coleville High School. Come to see good friends, have good food, and support a great cause.

Update on H1N1 virus

I have been receiving updates on the H1N1 virus from Dr. Richard Johnson, Mono County's Public Health Officer. He gives good advice for all of us, especially to stay home if you become ill. You can read some good information at or at the Centers for Disease Control site of Since it now seems that the vaccination for H1N1 won't be available as soon as originally thought, let's educate ourselves in the meantime.

Coleville sports

Well, when you thought it just couldn't go on, Coleville High has won their last two games by scores of 108-30 and 56-0. Their record for the season so far is 9-0, and they will be in the league's playoffs beginning Nov. 7. I have been told that will be a home game in Coleville, and it would sure be worth it to go out and root for them.

Walker Thrift Store and Recycling

The store and recycling center returned to their winter hours Oct. 26. They will be open Tuesday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Stop by and see all the goodies they have in the store for such low prices.
