RAW: Have your say Wed., March 13, in Mammoth as the Inyo National Forest gears up for massive changes to forest plan

March 13, 2013

In February 2012, USDA Forest Service Chief Tom Tidwell selected the Inyo National Forest (INF) as one of the first national forests to revise its Forest Plan using the 2012 Forest Service planning rule. The INF’s existing Forest Plan was completed in 1988 and has been amended multiple times since then. The Forest Plan provides direction and zoning for the management of a range of resources and activities such as water, wildlife, ecosystems, and recreation for the 2 million acre Inyo National Forest.

Athlete food for thought

March 13, 2013

Teens on the road without parents are not normally fixated on healthy food choices, but as members of the Mammoth Mountain Ski and Snowboard Teams learned recently, they ought to be.

A bighorn sheep thank you

March 13, 2013

The fundraiser gala “500 and Rising” was a terrific success, sharing with over 150 guests the remarkable story of the wild sheep in our backyard.

On behalf of the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Foundation I would like to thank the friends from near and far who came to show their enthusiasm for Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep, as well as the many people who worked hard to bring about this event.

Rich Boccia

March 13, 2013

We’re sorry to see Rich Boccia go.

No we’re not.

Yes we are.

Boccia’s sudden resignation as superintendent of the Mammoth Unified School District, effective March 1, elicited similar responses all around town and, presumably, in the cloistered halls of the high school, middle school, and elementary school.

He was a smart, brash, in-your-face Italian American, and Mammoth has never seen anyone quite like him.
