Press Release- Search and Rescue On June 19th, 2018 at approximately 1100 hours, Mono County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a 70-year-old female that suffered a possible dislocated hip while hiking with her husband and canine companion in Sky Meadows area near Emerald Lake (approx. 10,040’ elevation). Mono County Sheriff’s Office Search and Rescue was called out and 10 SAR team members began the hike to the victim from the Coldwater Campground trailhead. A Search and Rescue Helicopter (Lasso 04) was requested from Naval Air Station Lemoore to assist with transporting the victim from Sky Meadows to the awaiting ground ambulance at Mammoth Airport. SAR members located the victim, provided care and readied her for helicopter pickup. Despite the pain, she was stable and in good spirits. Helicopter Lasso 04 arrived on and was able to coordinate with SAR units on the ground the best landing zone near the victim. After the victim was flown out, her husband and canine hiked back to the trailhead with the SAR team. As it turned out, the husband was a Mono County Search and Rescue member about 30 years ago.

Thank you Diane for posting! Deputies Dan Casabian and Jason Pelichowski were happy to help you find your sweet, but justifiably scared, dog.

Earlier this week a County employee found a handbag and a suitcase in the old Bridgeport Hospital. Both belonged to a 77-year old June Lake resident who died at the hospital in 1979. Undersheriff Phil West put his sleuthing skills to work and learned the woman's husband died in 1964 at Northern Inyo Hospital, and she had no other family. Undaunted, Undersheriff West kept searching and located a grandniece-in-law in Texas. The handbag, suitcase and all of their contents are now on their way back to family.

UPDATE: As of 12:30 pm today, 395 is now clear of debris and open. 395 is closed north of the Nevada state line due to a mudslide. http://www.dot.ca.gov/cgi-bin/roads.cgi?roadnumber=395&submit=Search

Each Monday, we will provide a link to one of the Propositions put before the California voters for the June 5 Primary Election. Let's look at: Proposition 71

UPDATE: Osa has been found and is reunited with her human. If you’re in the Twin Lakes (Bridgeport) area, keep an eye out for Osa.

Tioga Road into Yosemite National Park is scheduled to open on Monday, May 21. (The secret tip found in their comments is that it will open to foot and bicycle traffic on Saturday.)
