On February 21, this vehicle was driven off South Fork Drive and ended up in the river.
  More information is now available on three local accidents that occurred last month on February 18 and 21.    The Saturday, Feb. 18, accident reportedly happened just before midnight.

  Wuksachi Lodge and Lodgepole Market, both in Sequoia National Park, remain buried under the fifth largest snowpack since records began being logged in the 1940s. Expect a massive meltdown as temperatures warm and the days grow increasingly longer. Also, use caution when in the vicinity of waterways as the runoff is currently swift and ice cold and will be for several months to come.   WEATHER...
Sierra Subs and Salads owners Dane and Allison Millner love to have fun almost as much as they love to prepare and serve scrumptious food!
  To hear Shannon Eis, Yelp’s vice president of corporate communications, tell it, it’s a Yelp-eat-Yelp world out there. Yelp loves to eat, according to Eis, and apparently so do their millions of users.    Yelpers can order food for delivery or pick up through Yelp’s Eat24 app or make a Yelp reservation, however, for better or for worse, that is a service that hasn’t quite reached Three Rivers...
  When the redwood sign that adorned the entrance to the Bar O Ranch on Old Three Rivers Drive disappeared in early January, shock waves rippled through the local community. The theft of the McKee family heirloom was another sign of the times: the world has changed. But don’t tell that to Three Rivers. It didn’t take long for an idea to hatch. A replica sign would be created and mounted, quietly...

  When you play sports at Woodlake High School, it’s just one of the activities in a busy day. At a small school, if a winter sport like soccer, basketball, or wrestling is your passion, you must still fulfill an academic contract by keeping your grades up and getting your homework done.   The majority of these students know how to multi-task, an essential skill to make all the practices  and...
A National Park Service ranger prepares to take the March 1 snow measurements at Hockett Meadow in the backcountry of Sequoia National Park while the ranger station in the background is buried under 10 feet of snow. (Click arrows for additional photos.)
  When it comes to measuring snow in the Sierra Nevada, the more data used, the better the water outlook. That 200 percent is twice the norm for March 1 since snow records have been kept since 1947.     And if it doesn’t rain a drop or snow a single flake from now till April, the current average of 46 inches of water content is 173 percent of the April 1 norm. Translation: this huge snowpack is...
