Mountain Rambler: OPEN 7 Days A Week

Brewery to Open 7 Days a Week

The Mountain Rambler Brewery management team has announced plans to change brewery operations in order to now be open for daily operations. According to General Managing Partner Joe Lane, “the brew-pub will now be open on Mondays, which was our one day a week to be closed.” The Board of Directors felt that the demand to be open 7 days a week certainly justified the change. With 8 to 10 locally brewed Mountain Rambler Brewery beers on tap, it “just made sense” to be open every day especially since many of the 3 day weekends include Mondays.

The Mountain Rambler Brewery is Bishop’s only brew house and produces in the neighborhood of 500 gallons of craft beer per week. The brewery has begun to distribute its beer locally but according to Lane, “may reach brewing capacity this summer.

Future plans for the popular local spot include an outside patio, expaned lunch menu and additional music bookings. Visit the brewery at 162 Main Street in Bishop, open Tuesday through Sunday until February 9th, after which it will be open daily.

MLF: Play - Boeing Boeing

Tony-award winning play, 'Boeing Boeing,' lands at the Edison
Hilarious and sexy comedy runs from Feb. 4-Feb.21

Mammoth Lakes, Calif. – Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre (MLRT) is thrilled to present a three-week run of the Tony Award-winning (2008 Best Play Revival), hilarious, sexy, non-stop comedy “Boeing Boeing,” written by Marc Camoletti, translated by Beverley Cross & Francis Evans, and directed by Shira Dubrovner. “Boeing Boeing” runs from February 4-21, Thursdays through Saturdays at 7pm and Sundays at 4pm.

American bachelor Bernard (Jeremy Goico) is happily engaged to an American Air Hostess named Gloria (Tyler Lovell). And to an Italian Air Hostess named Gabriella (Pricilla Toledo). And to a German Air Hostess named Gretchen (Shanda Duro). He keeps "one up, one down and one pending" until the invention of a new and speedier Boeing jet and unexpected schedule changes bring all three fiancées to Bernard's Paris apartment at the same time. With his friend Robert (Jesse Steele) and his French housemaid (Juliana Olinka) forgetting which lies to tell to whom, Bernard’s elaborately scheduled love life turns into catastrophically funny chaos.

City of Bishop: Solar Pre-Comission Event

Public Works News Release
Bishop Solar Pre-Commissioning Event

There will be an event at 3 pm on 9 February 2016 to celebrate the completion of the City of Bishop solar project. The brief event will be at the City of Bishop wastewater treatment plant at 980 Poleta Road east of Bishop and will celebrate the completion and the anticipated commissioning of the project.

The $600,000 project added solar arrays at two city well sites and at the city wastewater (or sewage) treatment plant. Once commissioned - essentially turned on - these arrays will provide most of the power used by the wells and sewage plant, will save the city about $60,000 per year in electricity costs, and will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by about 470,000 pounds per year. Construction of the project started in November 2015.

One 5,000 square foot solar array was constructed at the city's Well 2 site near the Tricounty Fairgrounds, one 11,000 square foot solar array was constructed at the city's Well 4 site on West Line Street near Mumy Lane, and two arrays with a combined area of about 12,500 square feet was constructed at the sewage treatment plant about 1/2 mile east of the Bishop Creek Canal. The capacity of the project is 205 kilowatt.

The contractor on the project is Performance Contracting Incorporated out of Austin Texas. The consultant on the project is TerraVerde Renewable Partners out of Larkspur, California. The project is supported with renewable energy incentives provided by Southern California Edison. The Eastern Sierra Energy Initiative, a Southern California Edison Local Government Partnership, supports all City of Bishop energy conservation efforts and supported this project.
