Putting the cart before the horse

January 25, 2013


Regarding short-term single-family rentals, Sandy Hogan writes, “A detailed inventory of what we have would therefore be the first step...”

I gently suggest that this is putting the cart before the horse.

I have been very naive in believing that the National Rifle Association represented gun owners of America in protection of the Second Amendment.

But the leadership, in response to the slaughter of innocent children with an assault rifle, while proposing more armed guards in schools, has revealed their true loyalty.

The NRA represents the manufacturers of weapons of mass destruction, not only in the United States, but also in the world.

Dog (sled) days

January 25, 2013


We are pleased to hear that Mammoth Dog Teams owner Jim Ouimet finally got word this week that he will soon be able to move his dog sleds and gear into a covered indoor space instead of storing the irreplaceable and historical items in sheds and outdoors in the snows of winter and heat of summer.

It’s about time.

The California way

January 18, 2013


They said it could not be done—that California’s fiscal problems were so immense, so mind-boggling, that no one in his right mind dare even take it on.

Then again, few people have ever said that Gov. Jerry Brown was ever in his right mind, and that goes for his supporters as well as his critics.

MHS Boosters Club sends its thanks

January 18, 2013


I am writing on behalf of the MHS Boosters Club to thank some of our sponsors for their help with new electronic message board on the corner of Sierra Park Road and Meridian Blvd.

This project has been a huge undertaking requiring quite a bit of collaboration. We would like to thank: Mammoth Lakes Welding, Mammoth Unified School District, Mr. Rich Boccia, Mr. Robin Davis, VP Construction, Digital 395 and Praxis.

Without the continued support of our sponsors, none of this would have been possible.

Thank you.

A compromise on gun control

January 18, 2013


As a grandfather still grieving over the devastating loss of 80 peoples’ grandkids, I have spent a lot of time in the recent weeks, processing what can really be done to stop these catastrophes. As with all the major problems facing our country, to really be effective, we need an “all of the above” approach.

A shining example

January 18, 2013


The recent Poetry Out Loud recitation contest at Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre is a shining example of the importance of culture and community. Poetry is designed to be recited, and the kids, some from as far away as Coleville, did a masterful job and gained tremendous experience in expressing themselves in front of a live audience.

Kudos for Double Eagle Resort

January 11, 2013


I want to give kudos to Double Eagle Resort and its staff for their efforts and investment in creating a new cross-country skiing opportunity in June Lake. 

The new groomed path in Silver Lake Meadow is great!

Thank you from the Angel Giving Tree

January 11, 2013


The Angel Giving Tree would like to thank the town of Mammoth Lakes and all of the people who selected names from the tree at Vons and bought presents for those children. 

Special thanks also to those organizations who donated money to help us with certificates and presents for the children, especially Mammoth Lakes Fire Department, Sudden Link, Suresave-Self-Storage and the Mammoth and Bridgeport offices of Mono County Office of Education.

Are our airline subsidies working against us?

This is our experience-you decide.

Flying home to Mammoth from our vacation, we over-nighted in Dallas.  The next morning, Dec. 19 , we got up at 2:30 a.m. to catch the early flight to LAX in order to make the morning flight on Alaska/Horizon Air to Mammoth.   We purposely had booked that flight so we could get back to work that afternoon during this busy holiday period.

An inspiring evening of poetry

January 11, 2013


I want thank all of those who made last Saturday’s Mono County Finals of the Poetry Out Loud National Recitation Contest possible.

It was an inspiring evening of poetry recitation that was moving and thought provoking. Thank you to the judges: Jo Bacon, Malcolm Clark, Stacey Coreless, Noelle Deinken, Bartshe Miller; the accuracy judge Blaire Lee; the prompter and County coach—poet Eva Poole Gilson; the tabulator—Tabby Mannetter; the sound and lighting tech Tim Casey.

Thank you Mammoth community!

The Mammoth High School Boosters wish to thank all Mammoth locals, businesses, second homeowners and visitors who supported our Christmas tree sales this year.

Boosters raised over $15,000 to support MHS sports teams, band, cheer, and other MHS organizations making this one of the most successful fundraisers ever.

To all my wonderful patients

January 11, 2013


I have received great personal reward from dentistry over the years, but the time has come for me to retire from private practice.

Although I won’t be seeing you in my office, you and your family will remain in my thoughts. I appreciate the confidence you have placed in me by allowing me to serve your dental needs.
