The Bishop Broncosâ football first round CIF Central Section playoff game against the Chavez High School Titans will kick off at 6 p.m. tomorrow in Delano. The game will be broadcast on KBOV FM radio.
The Bishop Lady Broncos ran head long into a pride of tenacious, skilled volleyball Cougars from McFarland High Tuesday night.
The game was the first round of the CIF Central Section volleyball playoffs; Bishop lost 3-2.
âIt was a great match. We were just out-played,â was coach Linda Frigerioâs simple explanation.
âThey were a good team,â she said. âWe were well-matched but I think we had better skills. They (the Cougars) have grit and tenacity and an unconventional style of play.â
Late last month, Augie Hess was at his second home, the Bishop Country Club golf course, hole 8 to be exact. He teed off and watched his golf ball veer to the left, then arc toward the flag. He and his buddies went to the green to finish out the hole. Hess assumed his ball had flown over the green; nobody could find it until someone suggested, âLook in the hole.â There it was, nestled in the cup like a little poached egg.
Locally, itâs been called a good project in a bad location â an undertaking that, when finished, will reduce a metropolisâ reliance on non-renewable energy sources but permanently scar 1,200 acres of wild and historically important landscape.
Itâs also been called the beginning of the end for the Owens Valleyâs relatively untouched open spaces â the start of piece-meal industrialization.
Now, residents of Los Angeles will have their chance to weigh in on the L.A. Department of Water and Powerâs proposed Southern Owens Valley Solar Ranch at a public hearing on Nov. 16.
People in Inyo and Mono counties who love animals will be pleased to know a final, mighty effort is under way to get the rest of the money needed to build a brand new animal shelter and pet adoption center in Big Pine.
The fundraising campaign, organized by the ICARE animal welfare nonprofit, is being called âRaise the Roof â a Cause for Paws,â and is designed to wring the last of the capital needed from the Inyo/Mono community. About $300,000 is still required to build the facility, which is estimated to cost $800,000.
A recent ruling on Inyo Countyâs claims that the Los Angeles Department of Water and Powerâs water-gathering efforts have had an adverse effect on vegetation in the Blackrock area is being viewed as a win for Inyo County, its residents and the environment.
On Oct. 21, a three-member arbitration panel released a 14-page decision about the dispute between Inyo County and the LADWP over whether LADWPâs groundwater pumping and surface water management practices have adversely affected vegetation in the approximately 330 acres of the Blackrock area.
Leading the way in holiday festivities, this weekâs inaugural Downtown Bishop Chocolate Art Walk will be a combination of a grand opening, art, music and, yes, chocolaty treats.
Event founder and key organizer Bruce Licher encourages everyone to attend his and wife Karen Neilsen Licherâs grand opening of The Project Room gallery in their shop, Independent Press Project, which is the centerpiece of the art walkâs agenda from 5-8 p.m. this Friday, Nov. 15.
This Monday, residents across the nation will be celebrating the men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces who have served to preserve the nationâs freedom.
Though Veterans Day is a celebration of all members of the armed forces, this holiday weekend, the Bishop Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legion, veterans all, are remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for freedom and never returned home from foreign conflicts.
There it went.
As Los Angeles speeds into its next century of water history, it has put the Los Angeles Aqueduct squarely in the rearview mirror.
Local skateboarders and snowboarders are among the residents who have been keeping a curious and close eye on the progress being made at the soon-to-be-opened Wave Rave Outlet Store in Bishop.
Located on U.S. 395 north in Bishop directly across the highway from the Meadow Farms Country Smokehouse, Wave Raveâs fans should have no trouble finding it â just look for the white gondola lift beneath the bright yellow âWave Rave Outletâ sign with a large colorful mural on the south face of the building.
