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.
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.
Kudos to Michael Raimondo and Matt Lehman for being the only responsible council members who voted to impose the penalties and interest in regards to a home being illegally rented out nightly.
As a local, I feel ripped off.
For the other council members who voted to allow the owners Kevin and Carolynn Cozen to not have to pay on the penalties and interest, when they fully knew and basically admitted they were renting their home illegally, should resign.
I am writing about the Alaska Airlines Snow Pack, which was heavily advertised late last year as discount airline tickets available between LAX and Mammoth Lakes.
My boyfriend John and I were both quite excited about his being able to fly to Mammoth many weekends this winter and to enjoy all that Mammoth has to offer, and we bought each other a 10-flight snow pack for $570 for Christmas.
The Mammoth Lakes Town Council talks a good game when it comes to making good on transient occupancy taxes.
But when push comes to shove, the majority of the council showed this past week that it can roll over like so many submissive puppies.
Faced with its first high-profile, public TOT case, council members Rick Wood, Jo Bacon, and John Eastman voted to let property owners Kevin and Carolynn Cozen get away with no penalties or fines for illegally renting their single-family home on Hillside Drive.
Two weekends ago, the community of June Lake proved that it is the Little Town that Could.
Faced with an economically challenging winter, the June Lake Revitalization Committee set off to develop some animation-generating events and activities. These have required collaboration and cooperation from many community members. The June Lake Winter Festival and Triple Threat Triathlon, held Feb. 1 to 3, really proved how great things can happen if we all work together.
Wild Iris would like to say thank you to the communities of Inyo and Mono counties for your generosity and support.
Whether you’ve been a long-time supporter, or you’re relatively new to the Wild Iris family, your monetary gifts, as well as those of time and talent, have made a tremendous difference in the lives of those we serve.
June Lake’s Winter Festival and Triple Threat Winter Triathlon event was a great example of a community coming together and being proactive in response to the loss of its biggest business booster.
When Mammoth Mountain Ski Area announced (unexpectedly) its decision to close June Mountain Ski Area for the 2012-13 season, we imagined every June Lake citizen’s hearts dropped to the bottom of his or her stomach. Ours did.
