Bishop's incorporation[edit]

Bishop is the only incorporated city in Inyo County...true???...can someone provide proof?...Baldwin91006 (talk) 18:03, 26 February 2008 (UTC) quoting from http://www.csac.counties.org/default.asp?id=79, which is about California counties, "Five of the county seats are in counties which have only one incorporated city, but that city is not the county seat. They are Bridgeport in Mono County where Mammoth Lakes is the incorporated city, Downieville in Sierra County where Loyalton is the incorporated city, Independence in Inyo County where Bishop is the incorporated city, Quincy in Plumas County where Portola is the incorporated city, and San Andreas in Calaveras County where Angels Camp is the incorporated city." I am going to fix Capitol to Capital - one's a building, one's a location. Patroo (talk) 02:21, 27 February 2008 (UTC) Patroo

I'm glad I asked; I was afraid I would've put something stupid in this situation, then get called on the carpet for being stupid...sigh...you've been a great help...thanks...Baldwin91006 (talk) 03:06, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

Removed sections[edit]

Just wanted to explain why I dropped the sections:

  • Races --- redundant with the demographics section
  • Tourist attraction / hotels / radio --- According to WP:NOTDIR, this sort of material is not appropriate for WP. Possibly more useful over at WikiTravel.

Happy editing —hike395 (talk) 06:03, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Controversial building mural[edit]

Anyone else heard of this? Apparently not many people thought much of it till a reporter from the LA Times was passing through town, saw it, and decided to do a story on it. Most of the locals are for the mural. Basically the mural is an image of the area from before the lake was drained, showing it being very lush and green. At the bottom of the mural is a drain, symbolizing LA's taking the water.
