A fugitive on the run from Inyo County law enforcement since late October was taken into custody this week after a three-hour standoff with local authorities.
Richard Farrell Andreas Jr., 32, was arrested Thursday afternoon following what the Inyo County Sheriffâs Department describes as âextensive negotiation effortsâ with the wanted felon as he hid in a Lone Pine residence.
Inyo County is continuing its pursuit of a reorganization of the seven-member Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control Board, with a workshop scheduled with Great Basin staff at its next meeting on Jan. 26.
Inyo County feels that the biggest issues Great Basin deal with revolve around the Owens Lake, and citizens who are impacted by decisions Great Basin makes on that front are underrepresented.

One of the History Channelâs most popular reality shows is coming to California and has its sights set on the Eastern Sierra.
Earlier this week a producer with âAmerican Pickersâ contacted Bishop Area Chamber of Commerce Director Tawni Thomson, asking that she spread the word that anyone with a large collection of rare or antique items may have an opportunity to appear on the show.
Longtime Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control Officer Ted Schade is scheduled to retire this December, a little more than a month after the announcement that Great Basin and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power reached an agreement on dust control on Owens Lake.
Schade started work at Great Basin in 1990 as the senior project manager for work on Owens Lake. In 2004 he was promoted to Air Pollution Control Officer.
Over the years, he has overseen work on Mono Lake and Owens Lake, as well as meeting federal air quality standards in Mammoth Lakes.
Three more ski lifts are opening at Mammoth Mountain Ski Area this week at the start of what the resort â and local businesses dependent upon the visitors it attracts â hope will be a busy season.
The mountain opened to typical fanfare last Thursday, Nov. 13 and the ceremonial first chair banner breakthrough at 8:30 a.m. Mammoth had received a dusting of snow the night before and flurries all morning, adding some fresh powder to a base depth of 12 to 16 inches of natural and manmade snow.

The City of Los Angeles and the Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District made history last week with the approval of a final dust control mitigation plan for Owens Lake that is supported by both agencies.
Last Fridayâs agreement puts to rest decades of disputes and back-and-forth negotiations and litigation between the two parties, while ensuring dust control will continue on the lake.
City leaders have approved a $1.7 million contract for paving and asphalt work on the Warren Street Improvement Project.
Last Monday, the Bishop City Council awarded the contract to Advanced Asphalt out of Truckee. The contract includes the construction of pavement, sidewalks and drainage. That work, Public Works Director Dave Grah said last week, is scheduled to begin in January, with completion slated for next spring.
âIâm happy to be to this stage,â Grah said. âItâs a big project but the improvements, I expect, will be in place for 100 years or so.â
