Florencia Ramirez: Drought solutions are porous pavement, fewer pesticides and herbicides
July 30, 2015, Florence Rameriz, Mercury News
"The grass will be dead in a week," my neighbor said when he offered to spray my lawn with herbicides. Alluring though his offer was to save me time and backache to peel back portions of grass and replace with a drought-tolerant landscape, I politely passed. The herbicide does more than kill unwanted plants; it kills the billions of beneficial microorganisms hidden in the soil, diminishing the soil's natural capacity to keep water.

'Car surfing' incident ends in injuries, arrest
July 30, 2015, Mammoth Times
An Inyo resident has suffered major injuries following an apparent "car surfing" accident Tuesday, July 21.
Inyo County Sheriff’s deputies, Bishop Police, and paramedics responded to a report of an unconscious male on Johnston Drive in Bishop Tuesday, July 21. Initial witness reports indicated the male subject hit his head after jumping from a tree along the Owens River. The subject suffered serious injuries and was subsequently flown to Renown Hospital in Reno. Law enforcement has been unable to obtain a statement from him due to his injuries. Investigators for the Inyo County Sheriff and Bishop Police Department determined the injuries sustained by the subject were inconsistent with the initial statements. Upon further investigation, it was determined the subject had fallen from the roof of a moving vehicle driven by Todd Anthony Talamates, 28, of Bishop. Talamantes did not report the incident and left the area prior to law enforcement’s arrival. Witness statements indicated all involved parties had been consuming alcohol heavily that afternoon.

Big Five Fire causes smoky skies
July 26, 2015, Mammoth Times
The Big Five wildfire continues to burn in the wilderness of Sequoia National Park, with areas of open flame producing moderate amounts of smoke in the Mammoth area. The lightning-caused fire, first reported on June 17th, has continued to grow in size and now has a perimeter of more than 90 acres – of which, only about ½ an acre is actively burning.
The fire is about seven trail miles southeast of the Little Five Lakes Ranger Station and between 15-20 trail miles east of Mineral King Valley, depending on which trail is taken. It is bordered on the east by the Sierra Crest and to the west by the Great Western Divide. Despite recent rains, the fire has proven resilient. Smoke may be visible to those hiking in the central part of the park, particularly in the vicinity of Big Arroyo. As always, hikers are encouraged to pay attention to their surroundings and be alert to any changes in conditions.
