The remnants of a Los Angeles Aqueduct construction camp have produced insights into how the aqueduct workforce lived and worked, what they ate, smoked and drank, and how the physical layout of the camp itself reflected â€śscientific management practicesâ€ť introduced in the early 1900s to improve productivity and control the diverse workforce.
Lone Pine resident and 2012 graduate Manuel Ruiz has won second place in the prestigious annual L.A. Screenplay Competition, which announced the final five finalists last week. These scripts are specially marked for production and will be passed around to producers in the business in hopes someone will decide to develop the project.
The final competition was described in a letter and an invitation to the final five red carpet event and ceremony.
