Work is underway on the new Inyo County Animal Shelter in Big Pine, and county staff has completed grading work on the site and turned the project over to Rudolph Construction of Bishop.
Inyo County Public Works Director Clint Quilter said last week that staff with the Inyo County Road Department graded the site of the new building, to be constructed adjacent to the current shelter. County crews removed large boulders from the site and leveled the area before crews from Rudolph Construction took over.
The following is part 1 of a two part series covering the Bishop City Council candidates forum hosted by the Bishop Sunrise Rotary and The Inyo Register on Thursday, Oct. 9. Part 2 will appear in the Thursday, Oct. 16 edition of The Inyo Register.
Five candidates vying for two seats on the Bishop City Council Thursday met at the Bishop Senior Center to share their views on city affairs and answer questions from constituents.
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.

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.
