tronagirl: I don't have a lot of faith in rumors. All I know at this point is what the newspaper said. Everything else is speculation. When people start talking the story is likely to get all twisted around and different people add things here and there that they assume for one reason or another. Accusations are sometimes true and sometimes they are false. You just never know and even after a verdict is reached, there is often doubt about whether or not it is based on what really happened. The justice system is a crapshoot.

Suspect pulls gun on clerk in Ridgecrest
I hate to see this kind of thing. Hopefully they catch the thug quickly. Anyone who would offend in this manner using a gun should be put away for a long, long time, if not permanently.

Junior Rodeo comes to Kernville
Here's an interesting event that took place in Kernville...
The Kern Valley (KV) Junior Rodeo debuted last year in Ridgecrest, and now Kernville has been added to its rodeo schedule. On April 14-15 at the Kernville rodeo grounds, kids from ages 1 to 18 participated in over 60 rodeo events that were modified to fit the age and size of the contestants.

... but which is organized by people from Trona.
The KV Junior Rodeo was founded and is run by Skylar and Melissa McCullar of Trona, and Melissa’s mother, Colleen Brock, of Inyokern. After many years being organizers for large rodeos in Ridgecrest, they saw the need for a separate and regular rodeo schedule for younger kids.

Panamint Valley Limestone Will Develop a $45 million PVL Lime Plant in Trona, California
I assume this is about the facility at the end of Nadeau Road. Apparently it will be upgraded and developed over the next few years. This facility is supposed to become operational in early 2021. It sounds like there will be lots of big trucks with heavy loads climbing Slate Range Crossing. That doesn't sound like a good thing at all, even if up to thirty-four jobs are created.
The PVL plant will convert high quality limestone rock, quarried from the company's established limestone quarry in the Panamint Valley, into 400 tons per day of high value Quick Lime and Hydrated Lime products used in cement, soil conditioning, water treatment and industrial processes. The PVL lime plant will be the only producer of lime in the state of California, where currently all lime used is imported from out of state. The PVL Lime plant will be located on a site northwest of the existing Searles Valley Minerals and ACE Cogeneration industrial facilities “on a highly disturbed brownfield site,” company officials said.

Interesting info. Like desertrat says, it would be interesting to know how much traffic this will generate. Also will large trucks with heavy loads on Slate Range Crossing pose a safety hazard?

Dangerous levels of algae found in Lake Isabella
If you're planning on heading up to Lake Isabella this week, you might want to reconsider.
