Randy, Donvan and Glazer recap the Monday night game.
Work is underway on the new Inyo County Animal Shelter in Big Pine, and county staff has completed grading work on the site and turned the project over to Rudolph Construction of Bishop.
Inyo County Public Works Director Clint Quilter said last week that staff with the Inyo County Road Department graded the site of the new building, to be constructed adjacent to the current shelter. County crews removed large boulders from the site and leveled the area before crews from Rudolph Construction took over.
The following is part 1 of a two part series covering the Bishop City Council candidates forum hosted by the Bishop Sunrise Rotary and The Inyo Register on Thursday, Oct. 9. Part 2 will appear in the Thursday, Oct. 16 edition of The Inyo Register.
Five candidates vying for two seats on the Bishop City Council Thursday met at the Bishop Senior Center to share their views on city affairs and answer questions from constituents.
Residents who attended Wednesday eveningâ€™s forum for five candidates vying for three seats on the Bishop Unified School District Board of Trustees may have a harder time deciding how to cast their votes Nov. 4 than they would have before the forum.
While the five candidatesâ€™ backgrounds vary, the consensus of a small sampling of those in attendance was that all five made their case effectively and convincingly.
It takes strength, ingenuity, courage and determination to scale a 1,000-foot â€śheadwallâ€ť in our mountains to save a fallen climberâ€™s life. The same might be said for filming a feature in these enormously challenging locations in our mountains on a â€śmicro-budget.â€ť
14 Major League Baseball playoffs began with a bang on Tuesday night as the Oakland Aâ€™s played the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. The Royals beat the Aâ€™s 9-8 in a 12-inning marathon that featured five lead changes and ended on a walk-off single to left field that barely missed the glove of the Aâ€™s diving third baseman. It wasnâ€™t just the best game in the three-year history of the wild card play-in game, it was one of the most exciting postseason games ever.
Before Sept. 25 Thursday Night Football, Phil Simms decided to take a small stand and not say the name â€śRedskinsâ€ť during the broadcast. Pretty simple really, but it let us know exactly where he stands. A Superbowl champ and respected broadcaster, conspicuously not saying it, and just replacing it with â€śWashingtonâ€ť if required by the sentence. Truth be told, he slipped and said it in the fourth quarter. But I, for one, appreciate that he tried and that he made his stance public.
â€śThe biggest challenge we are facing as a government department is that we will run out of allocated funding in two weeks, and there seems to be no other available revenue options that donâ€™t present their own unique set of challenges.
