You know what a good escape is? A book. Read a book. Read lots of books. Learn something. Maybe if you do that you can “escape” Lone Pine and go to college somewhere and earn money to really “escape … how it can all get”. Good grief, a teenager has… Read more »

I might be mistaken on this one but don’t think so…If the driver coped out saying the drugs and paraphernalia was his,and his passenger knew nothing of it,a good bet the passenger would have ended up walking..BUT with the strong smell of marijuana radiating from the vehicle,that would kind of… Read more »

Knuckleheads. If their going to drive around in a car full of drugs with a busted windshield while not using their blinker I think they deserve to go to jail. Maybe that’s why they call it dope. I’m glad I purchased that t-shirt from Bishop PD to raise money for… Read more »

What a tragic waste of more young lives in our county. A benefit of living in our small communities is that we come to know many of those that live here. For the most part, it is a positive, uplifting experience. There are many fine people living here. The flip-side… Read more »

Bonjour! In. J Spoon’ defense, there is this: French Adjective nazie f feminine form of nazi Even when misspelled…or not (if your are “French”), there is little defense to toss the word “Nazi” around to describe anyone on these posts or elsewhere for that matter. Whether in jest or slur,… Read more »
