LORP comes back to life

May 2, 2011

With the water comes the fun, as is the case in Southern Inyo County with the return of water to the Lower Owens River. The once lush and green Owens Valley floor south of Big Pine, that became a desert after the water was taken by the City of Los Angeles, is turning back into a riparian area full of life and adventure.
The Inyo County and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power want to know exactly what kind of fun people want to have there. The two are developing a recreation plan for the Lower Owens River Project and are asking the public for input.

Lady Broncos score wins over C.C. Ravens

May 2, 2011

The Bishop Lady Broncos softball teams both came up with wins over California City Friday. The varsity won 1-0; the junior varsity 19-3.
“We were short handed,” said varsity coach Stacy Van Nest, “traveling with only 11 girls. The win took all 11 and they gave it everything they had.”
According to Van Nest, the lone run was deceptive. “We had several hard hits into the wind,” she said, “so our run doesn’t really show how well we were hitting.”

“We played terrific defense,” said coach Tim Reid. “Chance Callahan and Schain Thomson were both outstanding.”
