June 14, 2011

The after-effects of the multi-vehicle crash that killed four and injured 15 on Aug. 11, 2010 are still being felt. But now, much deserved honors are being bestowed upon an Inyo County sheriff’s deputy for what many are calling courageous and heroic actions.
Shane Scott, recently promoted to investigator, was reportedly the first responder on the scene of the accident, and with little regard for his own safety, entered a burning vehicle to save the life of a 22-year-old college student, Drew Constantine Delis.

Originally planned to help a church in the Sendai Prefecture, a small group of local students and chaperones is in Japan helping to clean up after the devastating earthquake and tsunami.
Nine residents are part of the local Calvary Baptist Church group that had planned, as early as November, to go to Japan. Following the natural disaster of March 11, those plans have had to be altered slightly. Steve Stutler, leader of the group, said travel and other restrictions have been lifted only in the past few weeks and the group is still excited to go.

Big Pine Schools eye energy, cash savings

June 14, 2011

With summer here, Big Pine School is hoping to harness the sun to power the campus.
Last year, voters approved two bond measures that the school will be using to construct a solar array in the school parking lot.
According to Superintendent Pamela Jones, the project is expected to produce 200 kilowatts of energy per day and will cover approximately 80 percent of the school’s energy use.
In addition to the savings on energy costs, the school will also be eligible for rebates through the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. Jones said the rebates could total $500,000.
