Bishop grad following his dreams

March 26, 2012

Reagan Slee knew when he graduated from Bishop High that he wanted to own a sporting goods store some day. What he didn’t know was how the different career paths he would eventually take paved the way to Reagan’s Sporting Goods. He probably also didn’t know how much work it would take to bring that dream to life.

Lady Broncos go 7-3 in pre-league

March 26, 2012

The Bishop Lady Broncos logged an 11-3 win over Vasquez Saturday at the Lancaster Tournament and a 10-0 shutout of Louisville in an impromptu scrimmage.
The Broncos got to Lancaster two hours before their first scheduled game against Vasquez to find that their second opponent, Desert Christian, was a no show, leaving the Louisville Royals from Woodland Hills idle.
Bishop volunteered to play Louisville in a scrimmage format, then donated pitcher Megan Erwin when the Royals’ pitcher suffered arm problems during warm up. Erwin and Kellie Tiner rotated between teams for six innings of play.

Broncos split doubleheader

March 26, 2012

When is a split doubleheader a good thing? When it’s the Bishop Broncos baseball team up against the Burroughs Burros in Ridgecrest.
Bishop beat Burroughs Saturday 3-1, then lost the second game 0-1 in what is usually a humbling test for the Broncos in pre-league.
“This is the best we’ve played all season,” said coach Tim Reid.
Curran Simpson saved the win with a diving out at second base.
“Keith Tatum (Bronco’s catcher) had an awesome game one,” said Reid, “not only on his calls to Scott but he threw two outs on stolen base attempts.”

Warriors beat Braves, soundly

March 26, 2012

The Baker Valley Braves were no match for the Big Pine Warriors in either baseball or softball doubleheaders Friday afternoon.
By the time the dust had cleared, the Warriors had clobbered the Braves 10-2 and 11-0. The Lady Warriors overpowered the Lady Braves 19-2 and 22-2.
To the Braves’ credit, this is the first time since the late 1980s Baker Valley has fielded a softball team. With a bench of 20, the team has no where to go but up.

Desert search comes to grim end

March 22, 2012

A massive search effort to locate a California resident who mysteriously disappeared in Death Valley earlier this month come to a tragic conclusion Tuesday.
George Kohler, a 67-year-old San Francisco resident who went missing in Death Valley March 12, was found deceased Tuesday afternoon between Mesquite Spring Campground and Scotty’s Castle Road.
“It appears that Mr. Kohler left the campfire and took off cross-country on foot,” said Inyo Count Search and Rescue Coordinator Corporal Terry Waterbury.

City to raise park, sewer fees

March 22, 2012

Park patrons and business and property owners within the City of Bishop can expect certain fees and rates to rise this summer.
As part of a routine review process, the Public Works and Community Service departments are proposing raising various fees and charges as early as June 1.
Each year, all city departments are required to review fees and charges to determine if they cover the costs reasonably borne for providing service, City Administrator Keith Caldwell said at the March 12 City Council meeting.

Broncos send Eagles flying

March 21, 2012

The match-up of the Bishop Broncos and Lone Pine Golden Eagles baseball teams Tuesday afternoon wasn’t exactly the exhilarating cross-county contest anticipated.
The Broncos whooped the Eagles 9-2. The Eagles kept it close until the bottom of the fifth inning when Bishop went on a 5-run tear.
This year’s Bishop team is, basically, the same team that went to the CIF semifinals in 2011; the most notable missing body being Aaron Puls who turned into the home run king toward the end of the season.

March 20, 2012

After almost two years of fundraising and planning efforts, the Bishop City Council approved last week the construction and maintenance of the Bishop Dog Park, a full-service, fenced-in, off-leash area to be located at the back of Bishop City Park.
The first of its kind for the Owens Valley, the dog park is now scheduled to open this summer and project proponents, supporters and local dog owners are celebrating what they call an asset to citizens of the community, both human and canine.

Solar project raises concerns for Inyo

March 19, 2012

To some, placing a 3,200-acre, 500-megawatt solar plant in the remote reaches of southeast Inyo County seems like a good idea. To others, the proposal raises concerns about providing security, emergency response and other county services in the isolated region.
County leaders met on Tuesday with representatives of BrightSource Energy, proponent of the solar plant project. During that discussion, BrightSource laid out its conceptual plans for the Hidden Hills Solar Energy Generating System and the Board of Supervisors and county staff put some of its concerns on the table.
