    Looks like Lee’s needs a visit from the county enforcement officers. If we don’t get our act together, we will be on the state’s watch list.

      On the flip side, I stopped by Smart and Final in Bishop today. Dude walked in behind me without a mask and was immediately called out by a couple of observant employees, kudos to them. He mumbled something and turned around and walked out. Everyone else was masked up, giving each other space and going about their business. Ran a few other errands in Bishop and “most” people seem to be gladly complying.

    I’m fed up with the unmasked crowds of tourists infesting the Mammoth-area sidewalks, trails and paths. I felt safe in my town until the rentals opened up. Now I don’t feel safe.

    What did Mono County supervisors think would happen when they allow 30,000 + visitors to consume the county over the 4th of July weekend? Was one weekend of tourism profit worth numerous business / restaurants potentially going out of business? Good jobs sups.

    This is a huge overreach – is it even legal? Would you like your employer giving out your personal information? What if your undocumented?
