Don’t miss this year’s tea given by Altrusa International of the Eastern Sierra. The tea, on Saturday, May 9, at the Tallman Pavilion on the Tri-County Fairgrounds will feature three courses and three different teas. This year’s tea has a “Downton Abbey,” theme. Tables of eight are hosted and decorated by a “Mum”. The Mum sets her table with her best china and linens. Because of the theme, this year’s tea will also have footmen for servers. Distinguished men of the area have been recruited and will be a treat for the guests. Guests are encouraged to dress up and wear a hat. Hats from the collection of Ginny Rude will also be available to borrow.

Tickets are only $40, the profits from this event and other fundraisers allow Altrusa to give hundreds of books away every year to local children at Santa in the Park, the Jamboree at the spring Choo Choo Swap meet and to school libraries. The club also funds Hug Me Bears and Bags Full of Fun at Northern Inyo Hospital.

County of Inyo: Workshop - Talking Water Workshop

THE BOARD OF SUPERVISORS will hold a workshop during next Tuesday’s Board of Supervisors Meeting titled “Talking Water Workshop” to discuss water availability. In light of the severity of present drought conditions and the dire shortfall in water for in-valley uses proposed in LADWP’s Proposed Annual Operations Plan, the Board desires input from all segments of the community concerning Owens Valley water availability and use. The Board is inviting representatives of the Department of Water and Power, the Tribal Councils, signatories to the 1997 MOU concerning the Inyo/Los Angeles Long-Term Water Agreement, local water districts, LADWP lessees, State and federal agencies, parties participating in the Owens Lake Master Project Advisory Committee, and the public to join the Board in their discussions.

The workshop is scheduled for April 28, 2015 at 1:30 p.m., in the Board of Supervisors Room, at the County Administrative Center in Independence.

The Board encourages those who are interested in learning about and providing information concerning the impacts and mitigation of reduced water availability in Inyo County to attend the workshop and share with the Board your comments and ideas.
