Residents who attended Wednesday eveningâs 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 âheadwallâ in our mountains to save a fallen climberâs life. The same might be said for filming a feature in these enormously challenging locations in our mountains on a âmicro-budget.â
14 Major League Baseball playoffs began with a bang on Tuesday night as the Oakland Aâs played the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. The Royals beat the Aâs 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 Aâs diving third baseman. It wasnât 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 âRedskinsâ 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 âWashingtonâ 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.
âThe 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 donât present their own unique set of challenges.

Tuesday eveningâs candidatesâ forum at the Round Valley Elementary School, sponsored by the Sunrise Rotary Club of Bishop and The Inyo Register, featured three candidates vying to fill two seats on the Board of Trustees which are opening in November.
Round Valley has a three-person Board of Trustees currently composed of Joe Griego, Howard Arcularius, and Stacy Sparrow. Trustees Griego and Arcularius opted not to run for re-election.
Stepping up to fill the vacancies are Jeff Perry, Shawn Ray and Eduardo Sandoval.
The Inyo County Board of Supervisors raised concerns Tuesday about the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Serviceâs announcement that it has listed the yellow-billed cuckoo as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act.
Last night, Tuesday, Oct. 7, emergency personnel were able to access the crash site of a CalFire airtanker that had crashed near Yosemite National Park and determined that the pilot on board had died.
The CalFire airtanker (Tanker 81) based out of the Hollister Air Attack Base had been fighting the Dog Rock Fire near El Portal when officials lost contact with it late this afternoon.
The pilotâs family has requested we withhold release of the pilotâs name until all immediate family can be notified.
The only problem with local rivalries: one team has to lose. The Lone Pine Golden Eagles and Big Pine Warriors got together Friday night to start the Hi-Lo League 8-man football season. Both came into the game, Lone Pineâs Homecoming, wanting that win after a rough pre-league run.
Big Pine got a chance to flex their muscles in the third quarter, despite the loss of their starting QB. The Warriors lived up to the schoolâs tradition of physical, tough action. But, the Eagles got the win, 66-14.
