Inyo National Forest on Revised Forest Plans

Inyo National Forest Announces Public Meeting for Revised Forest Plans

 
The U.S. Forest Service today announced that in anticipation of releasing a Notice of Intent (NOI) at the end of this month, it is scheduling a public meeting in Bishop CA:
§  6:00-8:00pm – Thursday, September 18, Tri-County Fairgrounds, Sierra Street & Fair Drive, Bishop, CA.
Meetings are also scheduled for the Sierra and Sequoia National Forests.
The NOI will advise the public of the Forest Service’s intent to prepare and develop an environmental impact statement (EIS) that, when completed, will revise forest plans for the Inyo, Sequoia and Sierra National Forests.  The NOI will also have information on the purpose and need for this action along with the agency’s proposed action.  The final EIS will result in three separate Records of Decision and three separate forest plans.  Forest Supervisors will remain the “responsible official” for making decisions on their specific forest plans.
The Sierra, Sequoia and Inyo are three of eight national forests that were selected as “early adopters,” meaning they will be the first forests to revise their land management plans using the new National Forest System Planning Rule, which was completed in 2012.  The planning rule provides the framework for Forest Service land management plans across the nation.
Next month’s public meetings are part of the “scoping period” which gives the public a chance to tell the Forest Service what issues and concerns they think should be addressed in the EIS before the Forest Service begins drafting the document, and to provide written public comment regarding the NOI’s purpose and need, and its proposed action.
For more information regarding forest plan revisions, visit the Pacific Southwest Region’s planning website at:www.fs.usda.gov/main/r5/landmanagement/planning.
For Inyo National Forest specific information, please contact Deb Schweizer at 760-873-2427 or debraaschweizer@fs.fed.us
AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES:  In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, if special assistance to participate in this meeting is needed, please contact the appropriate National Forest. Notification at least 48 hours prior to the meeting will enable the Forest Service to make reasonable arrangements.

SAR Team Aids Lost Hikers Near Red’s Meadow

Search & Rescue Team Operation: Aid to Lost Hikers Near Red’s Meadow

To:                          All Media Partners
 
From:                    Jennifer M. Hansen, Public Information Officer
 
Date:                     August 13, 2014
 
RE:                          Search and Rescue Team Operation: Aid to lost hikers near Red’s Meadow
On the evening of Tuesday, August 12th, 2014, at approximately 5:30pm, Mono County Sheriff’s Dispatch received a 911 call regarding two lost hikers out of Red’s Meadow.
Two hikers were on a day hike from Red’s Meadow to Rainbow Falls. On the return trip from Rainbow Falls to Red’s Meadow, the hikers took the wrong trail and became lost. One of the hikers was diabetic and did not bring any medication on the day hike.  The hiker was beginning to feel chilled and other negative effects of the diabetes, and since they were lost, wasn’t sure how far they could continue hiking. The other hiker had cell phone reception and was able to call 911 and give their location near Pond Lily Lake, about 5 miles south of Red’s Meadow.
The Mono County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue (SAR) team was called to aid the lost hikers. Six SAR team members staged at Minaret Vista. Due to the medical circumstance, and the hikers remote location, attempts were made to get air support for the rescue. A 551 helicopter from Yosemite National Park was available to assist the SAR team. The helicopter crew was able to fly to the hikers location, land and transport them to the SAR base at Minaret Vista. The diabetic hiker was assessed by Mono County Paramedics and required no further medical treatment. The hikers were taken to their vehicle parked near Mammoth Mountain.
The Mono County Sheriff’s Search and Rescue (SAR) team reminds anyone traveling in the backcountry, even if just for a day hike, to always be prepared and carry adequate supplies, including any medications. It is important to be aware that is might take search and rescue teams time to come to your aid if you are lost, injured or ill.

Baseball History, World War II & Kerry Yo Nakagawa at Manzanar This Month

The Hidden Legacy of Japanese American Cultural Ambassadors—on the Baseball Diamond.

Four generations of Japanese Americans broke down racial and cultural barriers in California by playing baseball.

JA Baseball in CA Cover
Behind the barbed wire of concentration camps during World War II, baseball became a tonic of spiritual renewal for disenfranchised Japanese Americans who played America’s pastime while illegally imprisoned.
Later, it helped heal resettlement wounds in Los Angeles, San Francisco, the Central Valley and elsewhere.
Today, the names of Japanese American ballplayers still resonate as their legacy continues. Mike Lum was the first Japanese American player in the Major Leagues in 1967, Lenn Sakata the first in the World Series in 1983 and Don Wakamatsu the first manager in 2008.
Join Kerry Yo Nakagawa in this update of his 2001 classic as he chronicles sporting achievements that doubled as cultural benchmarks.
Kerry Yo Nakagawa is founder of the non-profit Nisei Baseball Research Project (NBRP). His earlier works include the book Through a Diamond: 100 Years of Japanese American Baseball and the film American Pastime.
PUB DATE
7.29.14
Baseball, and sports in general, have been a large part of Kerry Yo
Nakagawa’s family legacy. In 1993, Kerry swam from Alcatraz prison
to San Francisco, and in 1994, he played as an all-star for the national
champion Fresno Bandit semipro team.
He is also a black belt in the martial arts and an advanced tennis player. His athletic family history includes his dad, who was a semipro football player and sumo champion, and his uncles—Johnny, Lefty and Mas—who competed with Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth, Lefty O’Doul, Jackie Robinson and the all-stars of the Negro League.
His dedication to the NBRP project is well respected and has
morphed into a educational organization to bring awareness and
education about Japanese American concentration camps through theprism of baseball and its many multimedia projects.
The NBRP exhibit “Diamonds in the Rough” has achieved international status and has been shown in such locations as the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown and the Japanese Baseball Hall of Fame in Tokyo. Kerry’s other visions to communicate this story include a documentary with Pat Morita entitled Diamonds in the Rough: Zeni and the Legacy of Japanese American Baseball and the Telly Award–winning educational documentary Site to
Patriotism.
He produced and acted in the award-winning film American Pastime, which is still educating and entertaining teachers and students through its dramatic narrative and specific curriculum.
He is an author, filmmaker, actor, historian, husband and father of two spectacular professional kids.

PRESS RELEASE

August 12, 2014

Contact: Carma Roper, PIO

(760) 878-0395

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.
