Warren Street Update

Warren Street Utilities Construction Update

From the City of Bishop Public Works department.
Work on the City of Bishop water and sewer construction project in the Warren Street area will continue through the holidays and into early January.  The contractor has completed most of the waterline work on the project except for fire hydrant work on South Warren Street. Work on two hydrants on South Warren is expected to be
completed over the next week including the days before and after Christmas and New Years.
Once all water work is complete, the contractor plans to construct sewer improvements on Academy Avenue near Main Street and in the intersection of Warren and Lagoon streets. This sewer work is expected to take 1 to 2 weeks to complete. After the sewer work is complete, the contractor will have up to a week of patching and final
cleanup before the entire water and sewer project is complete. Construction of street improvements along Warren Street is expected to start as early as January and last into May 2015.
Road closures are required while work is underway. Temporary water and sewer shutoffs are necessary for some construction operations. Notices of the water shutoffs will normally be
distributed two days in advance. Patience with these closures and shutoffs is appreciated. This construction in downtown Bishop impacts traffic on city streets west of Main Street and will
cause inconvenience and delays. Closures include full intersection closures. Equipment, workers, excavations in the street, uneven pavement, and other hidden hazards will require attention, even when work is not underway. All efforts will be made to maintain access to businesses and to minimize the impacts and restrictions, but drivers, riders, and pedestrians should be cautious, take alternate routes, and be patient.
For more information contact City of Bishop Public Works at or cal 760-873-8458.

Sunday Accident on 395

Single Vehicle Accident Sunday

2014 Bishop Union High School graduate David Gratz suffered major injuries in a Sunday morning accident. The accident occurred just north of Bishop on highway 395.

According to the California Highway Patrols accident report Gratz was traveling northbound on US-395 just south of Sawmill Road. For an unknown reason, Gratz caused or allowed his vehicle to drift to the left, across the center divider and southbound lanes of US-395. The vehicle continued down a dirt embankment where it collided with a barbed wire fence and then into a large tree. Due to the damage sustained to the vehicle during the collision, the roof of the vehicle was removed to assist with extricating Gratz. Gratz was transported to Northern Inyo Hospital where it was determined he would be flown to Renown Medical Center due to the seriousness of his injuries.

The CHP report indicates that personnel from the Inyo County Sheriff’s Department, Bishop Volunteer Fire Department, Symons Ambulance, Caltrans, and the California Highway Patrol responded to the collision scene and assisted with the incident.

Gratz, age 18, just finished his first semester at California Maritime Academy located in Vallejo, CA.

Bishop Bronco Wrestling at Rosamond

Bishop Bronco Wrestling

Last Tuesday, the Bishop Bronco Wrestling team traveled to Rosamond for for their first league action of the season. The Bronco team consisted of:
Sophomore Joseph Mayhugh at 152 lbs
Junior Angel Santana at 160 lbs
Junior Tyler Cox at 170 lbs
Junior Orlando Ruelas at 182 lbs
Freshman Gabe Shoshone at 220 lbs
The meet started with Angel Santana wrestling at 160 pounds against a wrestler called “the strongest kid on the team” by his coach. Angel was able to take his opponent down but was
unable to pin him in the first period.  After a flurry of activity in the second period, with the score 7‐3 in Angel’s favor, Angel was able to pin his opponent.
The next match was at 170 pounds where Tyler Cox lost the match, but he did get the first takedown of the match.
At 183 pounds, the Rosamond team had no wrestler, so Orlando Ruelas received a forfeit.
Freshman Gabe Shoshone was very nervous before his first match as a Bronco, but those fears quickly disappeared when Gabe stepped on the mat in the 220 pound weight class. Gabe quickly took his opponent down and turned him to his back earning near fall points. Before his pinned his opponent in the 2nd period, Gabe had racked up an 11‐0 lead.
Rosamond had wrestlers in the next 5 weight classes, so the Broncos had to forfeit these matches, giving Rosamond a commanding 36‐18 lead.  In the last “official” match of the meet, sophomore Joseph Mayhugh completely dominated his opponent at 152 pounds. Upon reviewing the video of the match later, Head Coach Shaun Joseph said that “Joe used every move that we’ve taught him in that match. It was fun to watch.” After racking up a 15‐0 lead, Joe pinned his opponent in the 2nd period.  The meet ended with the score Rosamond 36 – Broncos 24, but with the Broncos winning 3 of
the 4 matches wrestled, the Broncos felt like they were the winners.
After the official matches, two exhibition matches were held: Junior Orlando Ruelas at 182 pounds wrestled one of the highest scoring matches seen in several years, points being scored so fast it was hard to keep track of them. In the end, Orlando won by default.
In the other exhibition match, Joseph Mayhugh dominated yet another Rosamond wrestler and pinned him in the 2nd period.
The Bronco with the best record this season is Junior Angel Santana with a record of 6 ‐ 1 with all 6 wins being pins.
The Broncos next face Kern Valley at home on January 8th.

Longest Night Service @ Methodist Church

Longest Night Service at Bishop First United Methodist Church

Sunday, December 21 at 7:00 pm in the Sanctuary.  On this longest night of the year, anyone in the eastern Sierra is invited to a simple time of Worship on Sunday, December 21 at 7 pm in the Sanctuary of Bishop First United Methodist Church.  Whether we are grieving a loss, struggling economically, overwhelmed with personal and family situations, it is good to remember that the first Christmas was difficult also and that the light of Christ “shines in the darkness.”  Perhaps we may feel very alone in the midst of all the Christmas celebrations. We need to know God’s presence with us during this season.
Bishop United Methodist Church is located at 205 N. Fowler – next to Bishop Union High School.
The name of this service comes from the season – December 21st  is actually the longest night of the year, with the most hours of darkness at the Winter Solstice.   But the name, “Longest Night”, also describes the feelings that a number of us have during this season.  In the long, dark winter nights, memories of past experiences and the pain of present loss and situations can become overwhelming.  For some, Christmas Day is the most difficult.  For others, it is Christmas Eve, New Year’s Eve or the beginning of another year.  Join with us to hear scripture, offer prayers for healing and wholeness and sing music that acknowledges that God’s presence is for those who mourn, for those who grieve, for those who struggle, and that God’s Word comes to shine light into our darkness.  Everyone is welcome
