Tri-County Fairgrounds Hires New CEO

After an almost year-long extensive Nation-Wide search, the Tri-County Fair board has hired a CEO. Jen McGuire has accepted an offer from the Fair Board for the CEO positon. Board President Paul Dostie said “Jen McGuire was selected because of her substantial marketing and agricultural experience”. The Tri-County Fair Board began the task of hiring a new CEO in spring 2018 and it has been a comprehensive process. California Department of Fairs and Expositions has assisted the Fair Board in the daunting process. After a community-wide SWOT Analysis in July, 2018 the board began interviewing candidates in August. During the November 12, 2018 board meeting, the board went into closed session and made the offer official.

Jen McGuire’s most recent experience involves working for a National Marketing agency in Southern California. She also has years of experience working for the California Department of Fairs and Expositions, working as a Junior Livestock Auction Chairman, Compliance and Ethics Director and Youth Program Director. Jen is excited to take on the CEO role and become a part of the Bishop community.

“I am honored and excited to work with this community. I grew up in 4H and FFA and so did my kids. These organizations are near and dear to my heart. Fairs, livestock, horse shows, rodeos and events are my passion. The smell of a barn makes me happy. Marketing is what I do. To be able to put all of these things into one package is a dream for me. I can’t wait to get involved in the community and build relationships, create memories for many and work with the youth! This will be a great new chapter for all of us.” – Jen McGuire

Clint Quilter Appointed Inyo County Administrator

By unanimous vote during closed session at its regular meeting Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the Inyo County Board of Supervisors appointed Clint G. Quilter to serve as the next Inyo County Administrative Officer. A contract outlining the terms of Quilter’s employment as CAO will be developed and brought to the Board of Supervisors for consideration at its November 13 meeting.

Quilter has been serving as Acting CAO since August 11, 2018.

His appointment is effective immediately and follows an exhaustive nationwide search began in July by a professional recruiting firm under contract with the County. The firm recently narrowed the field of applicants to six finalists from across the country. Separating Quilter from the pack were his mix of practical and executive leadership skills, knowledge of and experience with local issues, and a leadership style that emphasizes employee engagement and encourages communication.

“Before selecting the next CAO, the Board of Supervisors devoted resources to an extensive, thorough recruitment process and we took our time to ensure we had the best candidate, and the right fit, for Inyo County,” Board Chairperson Dan Totheroh said. “The recruiting firm presented us with several top-tier candidates to choose from and we believe we have selected the best person for this critical position.

“The Board of Supervisors looks forward to continuing its work with Mr. Quilter as Inyo County CAO, and is confident he will continue to bring innovative and constructive ideas and projects to the table, as well as provide for proactive, strong leadership for the benefit of County departments and employees and the public they serve.”

Quilter comes to the position with 29 years of local-government experience, including 21 years of executive level leadership.

Prior to his appointment as Acting CAO, Quilter served as Public Works Director for the past five years, leading a 58-person department with an $18 million budget and administering and coordinating the Airports, Engineering, Town Water Systems, Facility and Grounds Maintenance, Building & Safety, and Roads divisions. As Public Works Director, he also assumed ultimate responsibility for all County project management, and was a member of the Cannabis Working Group that helped to develop Inyo County’s commercial cannabis regulations.

Quilter relocated to Inyo County in 2013 from the City of Hollister, where he served nearly nine years as City Manager for the community of 38,000 people. Prior to that, he served as Hollister’s Public Works Director.

A native of Tonopah, Nev., Quilter is married and has three stepchildren with wife Sheyanne.

As CAO, Quilter will continue the duties he began as Acting CAO, including overseeing the administrative activities of the 424-employee organization; administering a $100 million budget as Budget Officer; providing professional and technical support to the five-member elected Board of Supervisors and administering and implementation of its policies and objectives; serving as Personnel Director; and advancing such initiatives as the new Consolidated Office Building and development of commercial air service at the Bishop Airport.

“I very much appreciate the Board of Supervisors’ confidence in me and am excited to continue serving the citizens of Inyo County in this new capacity,” Quilter said.

HIGH TECH PRODUCTS OF THE NOT-SO-DISTANT FUTURE

Google Glass Augmented Reality
Google Glass Augmented Reality

AltaOne members can now access some of the most cutting-edge technological tools to help manage their finances — MSC Online, mobile apps, BudgetPro, BillPayer, Popmoney, etc. Outside the AltaOne world, technology continues to explode. Products such as Google Glass — the amazing eyewear that conducts Google searches, snaps photos and videos and tracks trending news — are already here. 

Let us take a gander at what other items are on the horizon that are destined to “wow” the world.

The “Eye-Witness”

The Eye-Witness
The Eye-Witness

A portable retina scanner may soon be available to help fight identity theft and protect your personal security. The tiny device is only 5″ long x 3.5″ wide. The scanners can be used by financial institutions to identity members conducting transactions in an efficient and unassuming manner. Look for these devices to really take off when the technology is incorporated into a smartphone.

The Six-Million-Dollar … Finger?

Bionic Fingers Could Help Humans Get a Grip
Bionic Fingers Could Help Humans Get a Grip

How annoyed do you get when you realize the beer bottle is not a twist-off and you cannot find a bottle opener? Introducing “bionic fingers.”

These robotic devices, which are still just prototypes, simplify such tasks as peeling a banana and unscrewing bottle caps. Developed by MIT researchers, users wear the “supernumerary robotic fingers” on the wrist. The device is equipped with two “fingers” that move in-sync with the real fingers.

 Too Much Scale?

 Too Much Scale

As if stepping on a scale is not difficult enough for some folks. Now there is a scale that not only displays your weight — it also discloses your body mass index, heart rate and fat mass.

The Withings Smart Body Analyzer is quite the know-it-all. The $150 device also knows the indoor air quality and room temperature.

We will be far more impressed if the scale can tactfully recommend the right diet for users, as well.

Holographic Telepresence

Holographic Telepresence
Holographic Telepresence – Well, that’s a little creepy.

Just when we learned how to use video conferencing tools, the next incarnation has already arrived — holographic video conferencing.

“Holographic telepresence” transmits a 3-D moving image to each destination – giving the appearance that you are actually in the room with your associates.

The technology already exists for other purposes. For example, it has recreated deceased rapper Tupac Shakur’s image for a music festival.

The Polish company Leia (named after the Star Wars’ Princess Leia), has produced the Leia Display XL, which projects images onto a cloud of water vapor. This technology is destined to achieve widespread popularity. Expect to see it marketed within about a year.

We live in such intriguing times.
