Good morning Bishop! Here is today's fun fact about Earth Day!
Earth Day got its start in the wake of the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s. After visiting the site of an oil spill near Santa Barbara, Calif., in 1969, Sen. Gaylord Nelson, a Wisconsin Democrat, envisioned a way to mobilize a grassroots movement to raise the profile of environmental issues, modeled after Vietnam War teach-ins. His idea spread and people held rallies in cities throughout the country on April 22, 1970.

Caltrans Annual Litter Pickup Day Inyo & Mono Counties – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) has scheduled a statewide effort to raise the public’s awareness and prevent littering. Caltrans District 9 maintenance crews will be picking up trash along the district’s roadways on Thursday, April 25, 2013.
Last year, the California Department of Transportation spent $43 million to pick up and dispose of trash that was tossed or dumped onto California’s roadways. Crews picked up 2,469 cubic yards of litter which equals enough trash statewide to fill more than 158 garbage trucks. Cigarette butts are the number one item discarded on the state’s highways. They cause roadside fires, clog storm drains and threaten water quality.
In addition to not throwing trash out on our roadways the public can help by participating in the Caltrans Adopt-A-Highway Program. The Adopt-A-Highway Program allows the public to adopt sections of highway for beautification projects, such as litter removal, vegetation control, graffiti removal, and tree and shrub planting. The AAH Program participants picked up nearly 104,000 bags of trash from California’s roadsides – enough to fill nearly 1,000 garbage trucks. Due to the efforts of the volunteers of this program California’s taxpayers saved an estimated $11.5 million value in litter removal costs last fiscal year.
To become a volunteer or sponsor, call Barbara Cote, Caltrans District 9 Adopt A Highway coordinator at 760-872-0622.

The kids at Discovery Point Preschool celebrated Earth Day by picking up trash in East Bishop. They talked about the way they want our earth to look and ways we can contribute. What it means to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Then headed out with gloves and trash bags.
The kids couldn't believe the amount of trash in our neighborhoods. They collected 4 full bags of trash in one block.
GREAT WORK KIDS!
What is it? A street project to reconstruct street pavement, improve drainage, provide continuous sidewalks.
What else does it include? Street trees, pedestrian lighting, seating areas or "pocket parks", improved overhead utilities, space for banners, art, and gatherings, pavement and concrete color and designs, and other "extra stuff" intended to make the street more pleasant to visit.
Where is it? The full length of Warren Street from South Street to north of Elm Street and on South, Lagoon, Church, Academy, Pine, and Elm between Warren and Main Street.
Why do it? The pavement is deteriorated, drainage is poor, and there aren't continuous pedestrian pathways, especially for the disabled.
Why include the "extra stuff"? The trees, pocket parks, and space for art adds a small cost to the project but should make Warren Street an attractive place to walk, shop, eat, attend an event, and own a business, improving the areas economy.
How much? $4 million funded by state gas tax funds. Only $2.4 million is available now, so the project may need to be shortened to match the money available.
How long will it last? The improvements should be in place for 75 to 100 years. We need to imagine what the street could look like far in the future and plan for that.
Why not Main Street? Traffic, especially truck traffic, and not enough room make it difficult and expensive to improve Main Street. In addition, Caltrans controls Main Street and determines what can and can't be done, generally with its own funding.
When will it be built? Construction is planned for the fall of 2014. It is possible the project would be delayed in an attempt to get more money for construction.
How do I learn more? Learn more at City Hall or on the city website www.ca- bishop.us. Go to Public Works page and look for street information.
How do I get involved? Contact City Hall 873-8458 email@example.com and get on the project email list. Attend public meetings or join the Focus Group that meets each month to work on the project.
