Blowing in the Wind

May 18, 2012

 

Something new is afoot here in Mammoth.

The time for whining is over.

The time for blaming is over.

Just Life: Barely a bartender

Government's role

May 11, 2012

Amid the many voices at last Tuesday’s special (and fascinating) Town Council meeting, there was a proposal to initiate a kind of philosophical, ongoing debate around here.

Councilman Rick Wood raised the question, and as esoteric as it was, it nevertheless struck us as being somehow important in the long run.

Wood, an attorney who is no stranger to the dais, acknowledged the many people who showed up to emphasize their support of tourism.

Yet when it came his turn to speak directly to the issue, Wood veered.

April 20, 2012

Opportunity from chaos

Our View Opportunity from Chaos

April 13, 2012

It often takes dire situations for things to change.

At other times, dire situations fuel more of the kind of negativity that was partially responsible for the failures in the first place.

But within chaos lies opportunity.

Attitude is on top of the list.

That might not seem like much, but these are two very small counties and it’s an unusually sharp increase.

No one knows why officially, but there’s good speculation.

“Let’s face it, this has really been in the news lately,” said Lisa Reel, executive director for Wild Iris. “And the ones reporting in our area are young, under 16.”
