    Seems I’ve seen that Brightwell somewhere before…and I rarely go to Bishop…Maybe it was sneaking around the streets of Lone Pine…maybe someone who should be looked into with the break-in and burglary of the local FFA,as well as other break-ins that evening a month or so ago.

    Isn’t this the second or third time Brightwell has made the sierra wave? Sounds like we’ve got a real winner on our hands. Too bad CA is so broke… I’m sure they will just get probation.
