Broncos send Eagles flying

March 21, 2012

The match-up of the Bishop Broncos and Lone Pine Golden Eagles baseball teams Tuesday afternoon wasn’t exactly the exhilarating cross-county contest anticipated.
The Broncos whooped the Eagles 9-2. The Eagles kept it close until the bottom of the fifth inning when Bishop went on a 5-run tear.
This year’s Bishop team is, basically, the same team that went to the CIF semifinals in 2011; the most notable missing body being Aaron Puls who turned into the home run king toward the end of the season.

Solar project raises concerns for Inyo

March 19, 2012

To some, placing a 3,200-acre, 500-megawatt solar plant in the remote reaches of southeast Inyo County seems like a good idea. To others, the proposal raises concerns about providing security, emergency response and other county services in the isolated region.
County leaders met on Tuesday with representatives of BrightSource Energy, proponent of the solar plant project. During that discussion, BrightSource laid out its conceptual plans for the Hidden Hills Solar Energy Generating System and the Board of Supervisors and county staff put some of its concerns on the table.

County to pursue idea of consolidated office building

March 15, 2012

County leaders voted Tuesday to move forward with a non-binding agreement that will allow them to pursue construction of a new consolidated office building in Bishop.
The agreement the Board of Supervisors signed with Joseph Enterprises Tuesday is a term sheet that outlines all necessary steps and a time line that must be completed before the county can build a new, 4,200 square-foot consolidated office facility.
The term sheet is non-binding, which means the county has the right and ability to stop negotiations up until the lease agreement for the new building is signed.
