Questions about the involvement of alleged embezzler Daniel Casteel in a recent high-profile murder case, and exactly what Casteel got in return for his disputed testimony, continue to go unanswered as the Bishop man prepares for a court appearance next week.
Casteel is scheduled to appear in Inyo County Superior Court Tuesday, according to the Court Clerkâ€™s Office, for a settlement conference â€“ related to what, exactly, is unclear.
County leaders decided earlier this week that in order to maintain services at the Eastern Sierra Regional Airport, airport users will have to pay higher fees.
But those airport users, many of whom were at the Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday, say theyâ€™ll be paying higher fees for services they donâ€™t even need.
The county currently charges fees for a variety of services, including fuel, hangers and tie-downs. The last time the fees at the airport were raised was in 2005.
