Last weekend for criminally good theatre

April 10, 2014

Are you ready for a little mystery?

Allison McDonnell Page masterfully directs Anthony Shaffer’s classic, Sleuth, with a modern flare. Although the play is based in 1970, quick dry wit and lots of suspenseful twists will keep the audience engaged in the Edison Theatre’s current production.

Sleuthis very different from the other shows Page has directed in the past. Instead of tense family drama like Proofor August: Osage County, she takes her turn at a comedy full of puzzles and lies.

Mono County has a new, rolling restaurant

February 13, 2014

BRIDGEPORT—A new restaurant opened its doors this past month in Mono County, and judging by the lines outside of Ohanas395, it’s already a hit.

The trick, if there is one, is in finding the doors.

That’s because Ohanas395 is a Hawaiian Style Food Trailer, owned and operated by Rena McCullough, a longtime June Lake resident.

“Opening a restaurant requires a lot of work,” she reasoned. “This is easier.”

It also is arguably better.

“How can you clean up a whole month?”

National Winter Trails Day & the Lakes Basin 15K

January 9, 2014

Depressed about the current lack of snow situation around here?

I have been able to stay motivated and upbeat because I am still skiing on great conditions up at Tamarack. It is going to take a good, old-fashioned three footer to open all the trails in the Lakes Basin, but never mind that for now; the 15 kilometers that are open have good coverage and are manicured every night as if by magic.

And, you can’t beat the warm, sunny days for being outdoors in winter.

In times of trouble, hamsters to the rescue

December 30, 2013

It was a bitter winter morning and his hands were freezing, but former Mammoth Lakes Police Department officer Paul Dostie was in his element.

One hand on a radio handset, another on a yellow legal pad, the sounds of a Vietnamese pop song came across his ham radio from thousands of miles away, tinny and scratchy in the background, he listened intently as orders from Mammoth Hospital came in over the wire.

“We are in lockdown,” came the message. “Only family members will be allowed in. All people must check in to the front desk.”

“I noticed you are in some kind of funk, Big Boy. What’s up?”

“Where is my supper?”

“Supper will be right on time, I know how you count on it, the way you pace around when it’s supper time. I also noticed you started pacing about an hour early.”

“You’re late with my supper. I’m starving.”

Fido and Me - Cats

October 17, 2013

“Tell me about cats.”

“Gosh, Fido, there’s not a lot to say. And anyway, you live with Chief, and he’s a cat. Why don’t you ask him?”

“I don’t think Chief knows anything.”

“Sure he does. He has a brain.”

“It is the size of a walnut!”

“Fido, your own brain isn’t what I would call overwhelming.”

“But it’s bigger than a walnut.”

Off The Trail: Turning Point

September 23, 2013

It was a hot, still morning and the smell of summer was adrift on the hazy golden air—pine sap; sage; the deep green scents of manzanita and ceanothus; the lavender aroma of lupine gone to seed.

Even the bees, spiraling through the waning fireweed along the trail, seemed lazy: somnolent, barely able to keep their heavy, furred bodies alight.
