If locals look closely at 2014 Miss California USA pageant contestants this coming January, they are likely to see Miss City of Bishop Kristina Blum among them.
After her 2012-13 reign as Miss Bishop, Blum said sheâ€™s ready to pass the crown to her successor â€“ tonight at the Miss Bishop pageants, at 6 p.m. at the Bishop Union High School auditorium â€“ and she has set her sights on representing the Eastern Sierra as Miss California.
During a time of nationwide economic uncertainty, a recent Bishop Area Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau report shed a ray of sunshine on the local economy.
Starting with the Visitors Bureau, then moving on to the Chamber of Commerce, Executive Director Tawni Thomson presented an update before City Council on Oct. 28. The good-news report included high traffic numbers and new collaborations, promotional materials and memberships.
