Our View Opportunity from Chaos

April 13, 2012

But in order for Mammoth Lakes to a.) emerge out of this lull and b.) to thrive and succeed in subsequent years, things need to change.
Attitude is on top of the list.

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.”
