Morgan Deuschle of Bishop won three American Junior Paint Horse Association Youth World Championship titles in Houston, Texas.
Deuschle, riding One Hot Machine, competed in the 2011 Youth World Championship Paint Horse Show, June 24-July 2.
She took the title in Youth Walk-Trot Hunter Under Saddle (ages 5-9). Youth Walk-Trot Hunt Seat Equitation (ages 5-9) and the Youth Walk-Trot Western Horsemanship (ages 5-9).
Tehachapi continued its dominance of the Little League All-Star tournaments with back-to-back wins over the Bishop Juniors.
Bishopâs All-Stars lost by a slim 5-7 margin Friday afternoon.
Tehachapi took an early lead in Saturday morningâs game and never gave it up, taking the tournament with a 1-15 win. Bishopâs bats were active, but couldnât string them together for enough runs to challenge Tehachapi.
Bishopâs fielding looked sharp in the first inning. A rapid-fire throw from pitcher Grayson Hess to first baseman Brad Greene retired Tehachapiâs Zach Wagner.
For 10 years now, students at Bishop Elementary School have been given an opportunity to be immersed in a foreign language. This year marks the fifth class of fifth- graders to graduate from the program.
The immersion class is a âunique and exceptional program,â said Teresa Eckland, Bishop Union School District bilingual coordinator. âLearning a second language in childhood is the best time to develop fluency, accurate pronunciation, and a natural ease of expression. They become âlanguage experts.ââ
With the help of Inyo County, Death Valley National Park officials are planning to add bike paths within the park to accommodate tourists who rent two-wheelers from Furnace Creek.
Despite concerns that the park would be competing with the county to obtain state and federal grant funding for bike paths, county leaders decided Tuesday to amend the Collaborative Bikeways Plan to incorporate parts of Death Valley.

Approaching Charles Brown Auditorium at the Tri-County Fairgrounds, it was hard to tell Bedlam in Bishop was really happening. But the excited yips gave it away.
For the fourth year, the Flyball tournament, hosted by Lickety Splits and X Flyball, was seriously under way.
With a 5-3 win over Bishop Tuesday, the Owens Valley All-Stars stay alive in tournament action, taking on the undefeated Tehachapi team in the championship round.
(The final round was played yesterday afternoon; results will be in Saturdayâs paper.)
Tuesdayâs game was hard fought. The Bishop All-Stars were in it to the end, but fell short of the mark.
âThis win was a big deal for us,â said OV manager Travis Allison. âWe havenât beaten Bishop in years.
âI told the kids to play with heart, to believe in themselves and each other and not give up. The ball will fall where it falls.â
