Bishop teen flying the friendly skies

April 3, 2012

Getting a driver’s license may be longed-for rite of passage for many teenagers, but for 16-year-old Wesley Blum, it is “not a priority.”
Blum has set his sights high, planning to earn his international pilot’s license by passing the Federal Aviation Administration’s written, practical and oral tests in 2013.
Blum has come a long way since his first flight with family friend George Batchelder four years ago. While the young man isn’t exactly sure when he caught the flying bug, Blum recalled that he “watched (the movie) ‘Top Gun’ every single day as a kid.”

A new normal: life a year after the Center Fire

April 3, 2012

The scarred landscape was the first to recover after the Center Fire blew through Big Pine just over a year ago.
Mert Stewart’s pasture, blackened from fence line to fence line, sprouted green shoots within weeks. The skeletal trees above grazing land south of Baker Creek Road are shrouded in a pale green haze after lying dormant for the past year. Nature has a way of healing itself and so, to an extent, do the people who spent the night of March 18, 2011 wondering what they would come back to the next morning.

Eagles fall to Bobcats

April 2, 2012

Friday afternoon was not a bright spot for Lone Pine Golden Eagles’ fans.
The Boron Lady Bobcats leveled the Lady Eagles softball team 3-14. The baseball match-up wasn’t much better with a 9-15 loss for Lone Pine.
The combination of strong Boron teams and errors from Lone Pine was fatal.
“Our offense was good,” said baseball coach Chris Riesen, “we just have to work on our pitching and defense. We’re a competitive team but not an overpowering team. We can’t make mistakes. We had too many walks and too many errors.”

Bishop golfers dominate HDL

April 2, 2012

Despite strong winds and tough terrain, the Bishop Broncos golf team came away from Desert High’s home course with a win.
Brendon Shibley medaled with a 79, followed by Raimundo Huarte in second with an 82.
Bishop’s team score, 423, was 95 strokes below second-place Kern Valley and 101 strokes below host Desert.
“Conditions were windy,” said coach Shirley Ono, “with tough pin placements and sloping greens. Short or spinning approach shots onto the many elevated greens were unforgiving and punitive.
“The Broncos played well and displayed smart shot-making given the conditions.”

Tigers top Broncos

April 2, 2012

The Bishop JV softball team took on the Lee Vining varsity Lady Tigers last Thursday in a lop-sided 0-10 loss.
“We had to adjust our defense and offense due to injuries and illnesses,” said coach Patty Cummings. The timing couldn’t have been worse as Lee Vining always fields strong teams.
“Tailer Marks did a great job at shortstop as did Tiarney Andreas at catcher and Tamia Shoshone on the mound,” Cummings said.
Shoshone struck out six, had two walks; the Broncos defense committed four errors.
