BISHOP UNION HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS RECEIVE TRIG-STAR AWARDS FROM CALTRANS
BISHOP – The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) District 9 Co-Sponsored a Trig*Star competition at Bishop Union High School BUHS) this past April. Trig*Star is a national math competition for high school students sponsored by the National Society of Professional Surveyors. The purpose of the competition is 1) to have fun and offer awards, and 2) to heighten the awareness of Land Surveying as a profession.
The competition was a one hour exam solving problems involving triangles and circles to determine lengths, angles and areas. Michael White had the highest score and Melody Lawrence placed 2nd at the BUHS competition. Michaels’ score and time has been submitted to Sacramento along with scores from all who took the exam in the State of California in order to determine the State Champion. The State Champion will be given the opportunity to compete nationally against the best high school students across the nation.
There were 20 students at Bishop Union High School that participated in the competition. Sereyna Cagle, Caltrans Right of Way Engineer would like to thank Deidre Buchholz, BUHS math teacher and all of the students that participated in this worth while learning experience.

Bike To Work Week Challenge
May 13-17, 2013
Bishop – Bike to Work Week was a successful challenge due to five local agencies joining forces and encouraging their employees to participate. The California Department of Transportation (Caltrans), US Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Inyo County and Northern Inyo Hospital struck up a friendly competition challenging each other for the prized percentage of employee participation award. In addition, the most miles ridden was up for grabs.
Caltrans had 15% of their employees participate which entitled them to the trophy for the highest percentage of employee’s participation. In addition, they rode a total of 338 miles for the week. Inyo National Forest had 14% of their employees participate and rode a total of 325 miles, BLM had 9% participation and rode 71 miles.
Inyo County was at 7% but rode a whopping 683 miles with Larry Freilich riding 131 of those miles entitling him to the most miles ridden for the week. Northern Inyo Hospital had 3% of their employees participate and 127 miles ridden.
Bicycling was once a novelty of the Industrial Revolution, but now it provides a healthy, efficient, pollution-free way to commute. Bikes can reduce traffic congestion and noise, are easier to park, and free to operate! Everyone that participated would like to encourage others to try it, even if it is only once a week.
In all, 89 challenge participants rode 1,544 miles, which saved approximately 62 gallons of fuel for about $250.00 saved!
A big Thank You goes out to the sponsors of the event: Arrowhead Cycle, Value Sports and Bishop Trophy & Engraving.

Our sandwich is a sellout so don't wait to order! Cranberry chicken salad with a creamy poppy seed dressing. True love!
Getting ready for those skimpy warm weather clothes? How about a fabulous spring time salad of tart green apples, fresh ruby strawberries, gingered walnuts and blue cheese with a "to die for" dressing. All of our salads come with a fresh baked roll.
Don't delay eat good food today!
