November 11, 2013

A recent ruling on Inyo County’s claims that the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power’s water-gathering efforts have had an adverse effect on vegetation in the Blackrock area is being viewed as a win for Inyo County, its residents and the environment.
On Oct. 21, a three-member arbitration panel released a 14-page decision about the dispute between Inyo County and the LADWP over whether LADWP’s groundwater pumping and surface water management practices have adversely affected vegetation in the approximately 330 acres of the Blackrock area.

Local skateboarders and snowboarders are among the residents who have been keeping a curious and close eye on the progress being made at the soon-to-be-opened Wave Rave Outlet Store in Bishop.
Located on U.S. 395 north in Bishop directly across the highway from the Meadow Farms Country Smokehouse, Wave Rave’s fans should have no trouble finding it – just look for the white gondola lift beneath the bright yellow “Wave Rave Outlet” sign with a large colorful mural on the south face of the building.

Lady Broncos compete at CIF Bakersfield

November 8, 2013

Seven players on Bishop’s Lady Broncos tennis team headed into the Central Valley for the CIF individual championships Friday, Nov. 1.
Of those seven, doubles partners Bronwyn Stephenson and Taylor Stoll advanced to the second round, a rarity for Bronco players.
“I have been attending individuals for quite a few years,” said coach Patty Cummings, “and rarely does a team from Bishop ever make it to the second round. It’s quite an accomplishment for Taylor and Bronwyn and I am very proud of them.”

Tough loss for Bishop

November 8, 2013

Thursday’s final High Desert League football game won’t make the Bishop Broncos’ 2013 highlight reel.
For a team accustomed to not just winning but blowing the competition out of the water, this has been a rough year. You can talk about life lessons until you’re blue in the face and it doesn’t make the situation any more palatable, maybe in a few years, but not Thursday night.

The competition in Lone Pine volleyball’s Desert Mountain League was intense this year with the final seeding for CIF playoffs coming down to a coin toss.

The Eagles hosted the Mammoth Huskies who needed the win to end the season in a three-way tie for league champion with Desert and Desert Christian. Mammoth got the win, 3-1.
