Inyo County has agreed to enter exclusive negotiations with Joseph Enterprises for the purchase of property that can be used for consolidated office space.
Fifth District Supervisor Richard Cervantes opposed the exclusive agreement, saying that now is not the time for the county to go into debt to build new office space that would ultimately negatively impact the local community.
U.S. troops may be pulling out of Iraq, but the war rages on in Afghanistan and parts of Pakistan, and Americans continue to die in combat in all three hot zones.
With so many brave men and women still on todayâ€™s battlefields and in harmâ€™s way, advocates at home and across the nation are reminding fellow citizens that while these troops are strong and dedicated, they still need a little tender loving care and the gift of knowing someone on the outside cares about them.
With Sunday marking the 10th anniversary on the Sept. 11, 2011 terrorist attacks, citizens are being asked to honor and recognize those who perished, the first responders who faced unspeakable horrors and those who spent the ensuing weeks on heartbreaking recovery efforts.
Bishop resident Mike Fennessy knows first-hand what those search and rescue efforts entailed, having arrived at Ground Zero early Sept. 12, and searching for the next two weeks for survivors.

The Bishop Broncos started a tough pre-league football season with a huge bullâ€™s eyes on their jerseys. Who doesnâ€™t want to knock off the CIF Southern Section Division Champions?
The only problem: The Broncos of 2011 are young and relatively inexperienced. That showed in Bishopâ€™s 7-42 loss Saturday to the number one ranked Division 12 Sierra Canyon Trailblazers. The schedule doesnâ€™t get any easier. In the coming weeks, the Broncos face Chadwick, a team Bishop knocked out of the CIF playoffs 49-20, and Rim of the World in the Broncosâ€™ first home game, Sept. 23.
The Lone Pine Golden Eagles 8-man football squad went 2-0 Friday night in an edge-of-your-seat contest against the Tonopah Muckers.
The Eagles who struggled through a rough 2010 season now stand alone as the one undefeated Owens Valley team early this season.
Lone Pineâ€™s opener was a decisive 42-6 romp over the young, inexperienced Mineral County Serpents. But, nobody could describe the Muckers game as a romp; it was a tough, back-and-forth contest that the Eagles refused to lose, despite a questionable call late in the game.
There was a time when neighbors were more than friends and whole communities relied on the skills and trades practiced by their fellow citizens.
Laws Railroad Museum is bringing that era back â€“ if for but a few short hours.
Lawsâ€™ annual Good Ole Days festival is returning to the museum this Saturday. The free event features live music, kids games, great food and the ever popular pie auction in addition to dozens of demonstrations by local volunteers who have kept tradition alive by maintaining skills of days gone by.
Nevada schools of medicine require students to complete a four-week residency in a rural, small-town setting in order to graduate.
Jamie Anderson, director of the University of Renoâ€™s Department of Interdisciplinary Medical Education, said these students must have somewhere to live during their residency programs. As such, the University of Nevada Reno School of Medicine is seeking those willing to open up their homes in the Bishop area.
The community of Big Pine will be holding a special 9/11 commemoration on Sunday, the 10th anniversary of the terrorist attacks.
The event, a year-and-a-half in the making, is put on by the same residents who have been instrumental in collecting, storing and distributing donations to the victims of the Center Fire of March 2011 â€“ the First United Methodist Church of Big Pine.
The Reverend Dr. Karen Moore said that all she did was put up a poster after the fire and the donations started pouring in.
