A local sports coach is calling for community support to help realize a Drug and Alcohol Awareness Day centered around substance abuse awareness, recovery alternatives and sober fun for local youth.

High-level officials and members of the public were shown this week how Inyo Countyâ€™s Geographic Information Systems database has grown by leaps and bounds, and how it can continue to grow to the benefit of residents relying on county services.
Inyo National Forest officials are collecting comments and concerns from residents regarding its upcoming three-year Forest Plan Revision Process.

The Bishop Broncos take on the Salesian Mustangs in round two of the CIF football playoffs this Friday on the road. The game starts at 6:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on KBOV.
So, the question of the hour: can the Broncos win? The answer is one of those frustratingly coach-like responses: the Salesian Mustangs can be beaten. Bishop has the talent, the coaching, every element necessary to come away with an upset over a school seeded just one spot higher in the CIF Northeast Division.
The Bishop girls and boys varsity Cross Country runners came away with improved times at the CIF Southern Section Cross Country Prelims, Saturday, Nov. 10 at Mt. San Antonio College in Walnut.
Nearly all the Bronco competitors shaved at least 30 seconds off of their individual times on the three-mile course since the Mt. SAC Invitational held three weeks ago.
