FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
On August 10th at about 3:20PM, Inyo County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the Ranch House Cafe in Olancha, California on the report of a suspicious subject refusing to leave. The subject was later identified as Evan Robert Furubotten, a 25-year old man from Quartz Hill, California.
While Sheriff’s Deputies were in route, dispatch advised that the subject left and was heading northbound on U.S. Highway 395 in a white Toyota sedan, and that the vehicle had been reported stolen.
Deputies located the vehicle on northbound U.S. Highway 395 at Cottonwood Road and attempted to initiate an enforcement stop. Furubotten failed to yield and proceeded northbound at a high rate of speed. Deputies pursued Furubotten to just south of Lone Pine, but due to the heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic the pursuit was terminated.
Furubotten was located just north of Lone Pine and Deputies resumed the pursuit. Furubotten continued to flee at high speeds in excess of 100 miles per hour.
The pursuit was turned over to the California Highway Patrol and Deputies continued to assist as secondary units. Spike Strips were positioned on Highway 395 near Fish Springs Road. As Furubotten approached the area of Fish Springs Road he swerved towards an Inyo County Sheriff’s Deputy nearly colliding with the patrol unit; Furubotten collided with a concrete barrier and the vehicle went off the east side of Highway 395.
After exiting the vehicle he was taken into custody at gun point without further incident. Inyo County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Furubotten for 10851(a) VC vehicle theft, 2800.2(a) VC, evading without regard for public safety, 245(a)(1) PC assault with a deadly weapon, 3056 PC violation of parole, 496(a) PC possession of stolen property, 12500 VC driving without a license.
Furubotten was booked at the Inyo County Jail for the above listed charges.

Putt: Work on your SHORT GAME, with PGA.COM’S BEST PRACTICE GREEN ROUTINE
“It is important, regardless the grip you employ, that your hands work as one.
If your alignment is poor and you have a faulty putting stroke, being a great putt reader is irrelevant.
A good putter keeps the body still and the blade square by never allowing the left wrist to break down. The putterhead never passes the left hand.
A pre-putt routine helps you stay nice and relaxed so you can make the best stroke possible.”
SUNDAY, AUGUST 10TH: Check in at 4 PM. Competition begins at 5 PM.
Come on out!
Sign up at the Bishop Country Club, or Call 760 – 873 – 5828 to Register.

1. Each participant will compete in all three skills (Drive, Chip, and Putt).
2. Participants will accumulate points in each skill. The participant with the highest number of accumulated points will be declared the Overall Champion of his or her age category. First, second, and third place winners of each individual skill will also be recognized.
3. In the case of tie in the overall score, the putting rank will serve as the tiebreaker.
* All scoring will be based on a 25-point-per-shot basis, with each participant taking three shots per skill. Each participant will accumulate points per shot in all three skills (maximum of 75 points per skill = 25 points per shot x 3). The overall champion in each age category will be determined by the participant with the most points accumulated between all three skills (maximum of 225 points – 75 points per skill x 3).

In response to recent public concern regarding crosswalk safety in the town of Bishop, the Bishop Police Department would like to make the public aware of special enforcement on many crosswalks throughout town.
In the month of August, the police department will be conducting several crosswalk stings as well as officer assigned enforcement. There are many marked crosswalks throughout the city and therefore it is the goal of the Bishop Police Department to make the public aware of them, to make sure pedestrians are safe, and drivers are abiding the law.
The police department is determined to keep our local residents and traveler’s safe during this busy time of the year.
We also want to remind the public, school will be starting in just a few weeks and drivers need to pay special attention to children as they head to school.
The safety of the pedestrians within the city is very important; therefore this detail and enforcement is necessary to inform drivers the severity of not yielding to a pedestrian in a crosswalk.
The citation fine can be a costly fee.
