Prescribed Fire set for Mono County

Fire crews plan to ignite the next several units (up to 86 acres) of the Aqueduct Prescribed Fire today (Wednesday November 19th), conditions permitting. Expect to see smoke east of Highway 395 between Crowley Lake and June Lake. By prescribing the fire under optimum weather conditions, managers simulate the natural role of fire. This reduces forest competition, opens gaps in the forest canopy for sunlight to shine through, and recycles nutrients to the soil for re-growth.

UPDATE

Crews did not begin ignitions of the 86 acre unit of Aqueduct Prescribed Fire today. The fuels moisture was a little low and the winds higher than forecast; putting the project out of prescription. Crews will continue to try to find the safe prescription window that meet fuel reduction and fire effect goals.

Auditions set for Playhouse 395

Auditions Set for Playhouse 395’s
Spring 2015 Show, “Guys and Dolls”

Calling all actors, dancers and singers, we need YOU!! It’s time to start tuning those vocal chords and limbering up those dancing legs as Playhouse 395 proudly announces the 2015 spring production of the musical show “Guys and Dolls.” If you have ever harbored a secret desire to appear on the stage, or are a long-time “performance junkie,” your time has arrived.

Set in the 1940’s, gamblers, missionaries and night club performers mix it up in this hilarious satire about life on Broadway in New York City. All the big gamblers are in town for the biggest craps game of the year, but organizer Nathan Detroit needs money to set it up. Seeing a sure thing, Nathan bets high-roller Sky Masterson that Sky can’t talk missionary Sarah Brown into going to Havana with him. To Nathan’s dismay she accepts, and then the fun and fireworks really begin!

Auditions for “Guys and Dolls” will be held on Saturday, December 13, 2014, preceded by an audition workshop on Tuesday, December 9. Director Dave Hardin says that he will need men and women of all ages, including older teens but, sorry kids, there are no roles for youngsters this time. There are even a few non-singing roles so give it a shot. The vocal audition should be accompanied and run between 60 and 90 seconds. Some simple dance moves will be taught at both the workshop and the audition. Call Playhouse at (760) 920-9100 or email Director Dave at ddhardin@gmail.com. Come make new friends and join the fun in “Guys and Dolls!”

He also bonded with many people to include special friends in the Eastern Sierra, Paiute/Shoshone Reservation and the Paiute Palace Casino.
Bob had a very special gift to help people. Whatever people needed help with, he would always try to assist them. He would spend time with people that were troubled with the challenges of life and try to bring a smile to them with his witty “off the wall” sense of humor. Bob was his own person and kept command of the way in which he would live his life.
Bob is survived by his loving parents Richard and Dixie Goodman, Brother Bill Goodman and wife Barbara, Uncle Bill Goodman, Aunt Vicki Goodman, Cousin Cathy Corkhill and husband Tony and their children, Cousin Karen Herrera and husband Mark and their children.

Cactus and succulents are perfect for the busy gardener as they require less maintenance and water in the garden and in the home. These plants are used in the home landscape, container gardening and indoor terrariums. They can be sculptural in the garden or used for the shape and color of their leaves.
