The Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fairgrounds is looking for a new boss.
The Tri-County Fair 18th District Agricultural Association Board of Directors will meet at noon Wednesday, Feb. 19 to consider, among other things, selection of a new CEO.
Interim Fair CEO Sam Dean said this week that the board has not actually made the decision to hire a new leader for the fairgrounds, and will have to check its finances before any final decision is made.
What the board will be doing next week is interviewing two final candidates who have applied for the position.
Ninety years ago, a 15-year old Native American girl from Fish Lake Valley took an important step toward access to quality education. Alice Piper and six unnamed co-plaintiffs sued the Big Pine School District and prevailed in the California Supreme Court.
While the courtâ€™s judgment stopped short of abolishing the concept of â€śseparate but equal,â€ť the case is considered a precedent for the United States Supreme Court decision that did, Brown v Board of Education.
The Inyo County Sheriffâ€™s Office took steps this week to simultaneously reduce costs and provide the public with easier access to current crime-related information.
On Thursday, the Sheriffâ€™s Office launched a new, online Citizen RIMS program that can be accessed by anyone, anywhere looking for information from the department, freeing staff from having to process those requests over the phone or in person.
On behalf of Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra, Bishopâ€™s Independent Living Center Bowling Team recently accepted a donation from Happy Hoods founder Carri Coudek.
Through the Pasadena Rose Bowl flea market sales of her anti-bullying Happy Hoods program gear, Coudek raised enough funds to donate $20 to DSES on Feb. 6 at the Back Alley, 649 N. Main St., where the United Methodist Church Social Services team meets twice-weekly. Since Happy Hoods was founded in 2012, Coudek has routinely donated to various local causes $1 for each smiley-face, anti-bullying hoodie she sells.
