New CEO for Register

December 7, 2012

Inyo County’s hometown newspaper is entering the holiday season, and looking to the future, with a new publisher at its helm.
Dion Agee of Crowley Lake was selected in mid-November by Horizon Publications to take over day-to-day operations of The Inyo Register, one of two newspapers owned in California by the corporation.
Agee replaced Carol Ross, who resigned as publisher in September in order to relocate out of state.
And while Agee may be new to the Register team, he is by no means a stranger to Inyo or Mono counties.

As Bishop’s newest ambassadors, Kristina Blum and Indica Morgenstein will spend the next year representing the local community as Miss City of Bishop and Miss Teen Bishop, respectively.

Both girls were crowned Friday, Nov. 30, at the first ever Miss City of Bishop and Miss Teen Bishop Beauty Pageant at Whiskey Creek in Bishop.
