Park Service plans bike paths for DV

July 7, 2011

With the help of Inyo County, Death Valley National Park officials are planning to add bike paths within the park to accommodate tourists who rent two-wheelers from Furnace Creek.
Despite concerns that the park would be competing with the county to obtain state and federal grant funding for bike paths, county leaders decided Tuesday to amend the Collaborative Bikeways Plan to incorporate parts of Death Valley.

Flyball dogs/handlers descend on fairgrounds

July 6, 2011

Approaching Charles Brown Auditorium at the Tri-County Fairgrounds, it was hard to tell Bedlam in Bishop was really happening. But the excited yips gave it away.
For the fourth year, the Flyball tournament, hosted by Lickety Splits and X Flyball, was seriously under way.

Owens Valley All-Stars advance

July 6, 2011

With a 5-3 win over Bishop Tuesday, the Owens Valley All-Stars stay alive in tournament action, taking on the undefeated Tehachapi team in the championship round.
(The final round was played yesterday afternoon; results will be in Saturday’s paper.)
Tuesday’s game was hard fought. The Bishop All-Stars were in it to the end, but fell short of the mark.
“This win was a big deal for us,” said OV manager Travis Allison. “We haven’t beaten Bishop in years.
“I told the kids to play with heart, to believe in themselves and each other and not give up. The ball will fall where it falls.”

Adventure Trails System bill gaining momentum

July 6, 2011

A proposed Adventure Trails System for Inyo County has passed the Senate Natural Resources Committee unanimously and will be heading for the Senate Appropriations Committee later this summer for final approval.
California State Assembly Bill 628, introduced by Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway, of Tulare, aims to authorize a pilot project in Inyo County to interconnect existing trails designed for off-highway vehicles, such as four wheelers. If approved, the bill will allow OHV users to travel a small distance on surface streets to access amenities such as food and fuel.

Gift of life

July 6, 2011

A local woman is going to give her kidney to someone she hardly knows, and is giving it selflessly.
“I never thought twice or wondered why I should do this,” Tonya Miller said at the home of Stan Summers, the man she plans on donating her kidney to. She said before she even knew she was going to donate, God had spoken to her and told her she was a match and that she could withstand this challenge.
God must have known that Miller is what is known as a “universal donor.” This includes more than her universally accepted type O-negative blood.
