Forest Service officials are investigating an incident in which someone used an excavator to carve a road into a non-motorized area of Forest Service land.
Local officials were made aware of the alleged road-building when a citizen notified the Inyo National Forest on Sunday, June 26 that an individual was using heavy equipment to widen a single-track trail in the Pine Creek Canyon area.
Fresh on the heels of Gordon Boettger’s recent, record-setting soaring adventures, more than 50 glider pilots converged on the Eastern Sierra Regional Airport in recent weeks to similarly take advantage of the Owens Valley’s world-class soaring conditions.
No new records have been set locally since Boettger and copilot Hugh Bennett rode a Sierra wave cloud for 2,200 kilometers – approximately 1,367 miles – in 13 hours back in April, claiming the Northern Hemisphere record for distance around three turn-points.

Morgan Deuschle of Bishop won three American Junior Paint Horse Association Youth World Championship titles in Houston, Texas.
Deuschle, riding One Hot Machine, competed in the 2011 Youth World Championship Paint Horse Show, June 24-July 2.
She took the title in Youth Walk-Trot Hunter Under Saddle (ages 5-9). Youth Walk-Trot Hunt Seat Equitation (ages 5-9) and the Youth Walk-Trot Western Horsemanship (ages 5-9).
Tehachapi continued its dominance of the Little League All-Star tournaments with back-to-back wins over the Bishop Juniors.
Bishopâ€™s All-Stars lost by a slim 5-7 margin Friday afternoon.
Tehachapi took an early lead in Saturday morningâ€™s game and never gave it up, taking the tournament with a 1-15 win. Bishopâ€™s bats were active, but couldnâ€™t string them together for enough runs to challenge Tehachapi.
Bishopâ€™s fielding looked sharp in the first inning. A rapid-fire throw from pitcher Grayson Hess to first baseman Brad Greene retired Tehachapiâ€™s Zach Wagner.
