Supes split over Bishop office space

September 12, 2011

Inyo County has agreed to enter exclusive negotiations with Joseph Enterprises for the purchase of property that can be used for consolidated office space.
Fifth District Supervisor Richard Cervantes opposed the exclusive agreement, saying that now is not the time for the county to go into debt to build new office space that would ultimately negatively impact the local community.

U.S. troops still need support from home

September 12, 2011

U.S. troops may be pulling out of Iraq, but the war rages on in Afghanistan and parts of Pakistan, and Americans continue to die in combat in all three hot zones.
With so many brave men and women still on today’s battlefields and in harm’s way, advocates at home and across the nation are reminding fellow citizens that while these troops are strong and dedicated, they still need a little tender loving care and the gift of knowing someone on the outside cares about them.

‘We will never forget …’

September 12, 2011

With Sunday marking the 10th anniversary on the Sept. 11, 2011 terrorist attacks, citizens are being asked to honor and recognize those who perished, the first responders who faced unspeakable horrors and those who spent the ensuing weeks on heartbreaking recovery efforts.
Bishop resident Mike Fennessy knows first-hand what those search and rescue efforts entailed, having arrived at Ground Zero early Sept. 12, and searching for the next two weeks for survivors.

Bishop drops season opener

September 12, 2011

The Bishop Broncos started a tough pre-league football season with a huge bull’s eyes on their jerseys. Who doesn’t want to knock off the CIF Southern Section Division Champions?
The only problem: The Broncos of 2011 are young and relatively inexperienced. That showed in Bishop’s 7-42 loss Saturday to the number one ranked Division 12 Sierra Canyon Trailblazers. The schedule doesn’t get any easier. In the coming weeks, the Broncos face Chadwick, a team Bishop knocked out of the CIF playoffs 49-20, and Rim of the World in the Broncos’ first home game, Sept. 23.

Lone Pine Eagles muck up Tonopah, stay undefeated

September 12, 2011

The Lone Pine Golden Eagles 8-man football squad went 2-0 Friday night in an edge-of-your-seat contest against the Tonopah Muckers.
The Eagles who struggled through a rough 2010 season now stand alone as the one undefeated Owens Valley team early this season.
Lone Pine’s opener was a decisive 42-6 romp over the young, inexperienced Mineral County Serpents. But, nobody could describe the Muckers game as a romp; it was a tough, back-and-forth contest that the Eagles refused to lose, despite a questionable call late in the game.
