South County Search & Rescue Command Center Dedication

Dedication Ceremony, Lone Pine

On Saturday October 18th the South County Search and Rescue (SAR) Command Center, located at the Lone Pine Airport, was officially unveiled and dedicated to soon-to-be-retired Undersheriff, and longtime SAR Commander, Keith Hardcastle.

The building once served as a Forest Service helicopter base center. When the Forest Service transferred their operations to the Independence airport, the building was used mainly as storage.  About six months ago the Inyo County Sheriff’s Office acquired the badly damaged building, and with the help from inmate labor and volunteer SAR members transformed the dilapidated building into a functional command center for south-county SAR operations.

Undersheriff Keith Hardcastle began his career in 1985 as an Inyo County Sheriff’s Deputy; he has been a SAR Coordinator since 1994.  “When I began as a Coordinator for SAR it was a different era – there were no cell phones, no on-the-fly mapping technology; map and compass was how we got the job done,” said Hardcastle.

Sheriff Lutze went on to say that, “Undersheriff Hardcastle has been involved in countless SAR missions and his scope and depth of knowledge in local terrain has saved many lives.  His legacy when he retires on December 30th will be leaving behind a highly trained and dedicated SAR team made up of volunteers and Sheriff’s Deputies who are both hardworking and knowledgeable. Undersheriff Hardcastle has been instrumental in training new coordinators and the Search and Rescue team will be in excellent hands with Deputy Nate Derr and Deputy Brian Hohenstein.”

Radio Play in Lone Pine Presents Death Valley Scotty

Metabolic Studio Presents Radio Play in Lone Pine About Death Valley Scotty & his Castle

On Sunday September 28 at 7pm, the Metabolic Studio IOU Theater invites the public to experience, “DEATH VALLEY SCOTTY,” a live radio play that was written by Ruth Woodman in 1931 and originally aired in 1955 in the “Death Valley Days” Series.

This marks the fourth play in the IOU Theatre series, which began in June 2014 with readings of radio plays about the Owens Valley and surrounding area.

Walter Scott (a.k.a. Death Valley Scotty) was a prospector, a performer with Buffalo Bill Cody’s Wild West Show, a raconteur, a conman, husband and father. In 1885 he met an Easterner who was told he only had a few weeks to live. Scotty helped him to recover and cemented a secretive, life long partnership. In 1905 he beat the cross- country speed record on a train from L.A. to Chicago.

Free with his stories and his cash, he quickly became one of the West’s most prominent and mysterious legends and kept reporters and the country on the edge of its seat for decades. His fabulous stories of secret gold mines and his million-dollar oasis in Death Valley (Scotty’s Castle) kept the public and newspapermen eager for the next story.

A troupe of local performers from Bishop to Keeler will read the play and perform live music and sound effects. The radio play is free to the public and will be staged at 7 p.m., Sunday September 28, the Double L Tavern, at the corner of Main and Willow, in Lone Pine.

Those under 21 can watch a live broadcast of the performance at the IOU garden next to the Double L.

The garden will also host an Open House from 5-7p.m.

Sunday with IOU espresso being served along with an offering grown in the IOU garden.

US Forest Service Responds to Ball Mountain Fire

USFS Ball Mountain Fire Update: 09/24/2014 

The Ball Mountain Fire is estimated to be 25 acres this morning. The fire is burning in pinyon and brush.

The fire is located near Ball Mountain, north of Kennedy Meadows and west of Tunawee Canyon. The fire is highly visible from Highway 395 near Olancha, the Coso Junction area, and Kennedy Meadows.
The fire is burning in a remote area in the South Sierra Wilderness and there is currently no threat to life or property. Smokejumpers, the Inyo Hotshots, and Inyo Engine 41 crew are being inserted today to begin fireline construction. Additionally, a Type 1 helicopter, a Type 2 helicopter, and air attack are committed to the fire.
The crews’ focus will be on the southeast flank of the fire to secure an anchor point and to prevent the fire’s spread into Long Canyon.  Crews will take advantage of natural barriers (rock) and previous fires (including the 2008 Clover Fire) for line construction to contain the fire to the north and west.
This is a lightning-caused fire from the storm that passed through the area on Saturday.

At Your Service Since 1986

Lee opened the store on July 1st of 1986 in the home to Mt. Whitney & most Film History of the Wild West– Lone Pine, CA.

Having been a truck driver for 28 years, Lee continues to have a great appreciation for a cup of coffee on the road… whether the sun is up or not.

Lee told us that coffee helped keep him awake during his years as a truck driver. It only makes sense that he keeps fresh coffee as easily accessible as possible.

So, naturally, FREE coffee has been a staple to Lee’s since day one.

Did we mention FREE COFFEE?

And, truck drivers are no strangers to stopping at Lee’s Frontier loyally on their route.

Letti at the Deli

Lee bragged to us about scoring his head of the Deli 7 years ago. Quality is crucial. And, Letti knows quality. In fact… Lee told us that she is one of the hardest works he’s ever met.

With fresh ingredients and food prepared from scratch, Lee’s Frontier takes pride in the food they offer at the deli. Breakfast starts at 3:30 AM.

Letti, herself, makes the homemade soups. Lee, himself, tastes them. How’s that for the charm of a small town? All before 4 AM…

What about those Animals?

Once the sun comes up, sit and eat outside while you stop… by the horses and goats.

Yes! Picnic! No petting. But, they belong to Lee, too! He started out with just one horse and eventually added a lawn with some picnic tables.

Visitors stop and take pictures and enjoy the view of the animals and mountains.

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.
