As the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power continues refining its Owens Lake Master Plan with the aid of members of the Lake Master Planning Committee, one long-time committee member has called it quits.
The Owens Valley Committee, which has been a member of the Owens Lake Master Planning Committee since its inception, announced earlier this month that it cannot support the LADWPâs plan, and will not be participating in any further committee meetings to work on the plan.
The Chuckawallees and Bad Company faced off Tuesday night in the C Coed Division of Bishopâs Adult Softball league. Bad Company came in undefeated with the Chuckawallees right behind them at 1-1.
Chuckawallee took a couple of innings to warm up, but when they did, Bad Company went reeling with a 3-8 deficit. Then it was Bad Companyâs turn to fight back, making the winning run in the bottom of the sixth for the 11-10 win.
Bad Company took out the top of Chuckawalleeâs batting order in short order in the top of the first, then put the offense to work.

Firefighters contained a 15 acre wildland fire near historic Scottyâs Castle in Death Valley National Park Thursday afternoon.
Scottyâs Castle is a Spanish style mansion built in the 1930s that hosts daily living history tours. The Castle is closed until water and power are restored to the area.
Bonnie Clair Road (Scottyâs Castle Road) is closed between the junction of Big Pine Road and three miles east of the Castle. The remainder of the park remains open to visitors, including the road to Ubehebe Crater and the Racetrack.
Bobby Tanner and his 20 mules have a marketing whiz and a photograph â taken just a few years before the original mule teams were replaced by a train â to thank for the icon-status of the 20-Mule Team and its connection to Borax, a laundry product that âlifts stains and controls odors.â
With new and revamped categories, old favorites and a long and varied string of entrants, 2013 Mule Days Parade-goers can look forward to a lively lineup this weekend.
Every year, hundreds if not thousands of spectators plan ahead, placing chairs along the Main Street parade route the Friday before the parade. It will likely be standing room only by the time the VFW Color Guard heads out at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 25, as first entry, making its way along Main Street in Bishop from South to Sierra streets, then turning west to the fairgrounds.
