    I still wish something could be done about the hazardous crosswalks on Main St. Just a matter of time before someone gets wiped out in one. Poor planning.

    Welcome Mr. Green, I’m sure you and your family will enjoy Bishop and the Owens Valley as much as the rest of us. But please, NO more new stoplights on North Sierra Highway or West Line Street. Keep traffic moving as is.

      Ignoring the years of service required to ascend to his current position, something that you probably could not yourself do. Btw, it requires at least twenty years of service to receive any public pension. It is not like your IRA or 401k, you have to work for many years before you can draw a public pension. In addition, most forego Social Security. When SS was formed it was thought that public workers would not need it since they receive a local pension, so they do not accumulate quarters for the time worked at a local or state government job. Instead the SS tax is supposed to go to the public agency to fund their eventual pension. My dad worked for the City of LA for 32 years, never paid into SS and received a bare minimum SS payment based on the decade or so he worked before coming to work with the city. When I worked for LAUSD it was made clear to us that we would not be eligible for SS for the years I paid into CALPERS.

      But instead of knowledgeable comments we get flippant and uninformed remarks like the one above from someone who doesn’t begin to have the energy or intellect to rise to a similar position of responsibility. Sour grapes perhaps?
