Local high school graduate Jesse Steele is making good on his dream of working in the movies in L.A. and recently celebrated the premier of his first feature film.
Steele has been somewhat of a local celebrity, working on his own television program, â€śGet Real with Jesse Steeleâ€ť when he was still in high school and moving on to theater productions put on by the Inyo Council for the Arts and Playhouse 395.
About two years ago, Steele moved to Southern California in an effort to further his career.
Halfway through the fiscal year, and Inyo County seems to be doing better than many California counties â€“ at least according to initial reports from department heads.
â€śThe crystal ball is very murky,â€ť County Administrative Officer Kevin Carunchio said, â€śthe budget is far from being in the red at this juncture. Things are looking pretty good, but thereâ€™s still a lot of uncertainty.â€ť
Carunchio said much of that uncertainty comes from instability at the state level.
