It was Hana, though, who likely saved her parents lives shortly thereafter.
 
It was sometime around midnight on Jan. 10 and Mammoth was fast asleep, including Hana.

Wheels of Justice

The Murmur Mill in Mammoth is in full throat.
 
We don’t like it, but the reality is that the arrest of two of our citizens on child sex charges (P.1) is just too juicy for most of the murmurers to ignore.

Tenney 'Goes for Broke' on funding for Gateway Project

January 13, 2012

Call it want you want: Shooting the Moon, Going for Broke, whatever.

For Elizabeth Tenney, it’s all of that, with an extra measure of audacity thrown in.

Tenney, whose volunteer projects in Mammoth have made her a key behind-the-scenes player, on Tuesday floored the town’s Recreation Commission with a request for $250,000 in Measure R (taxpayer) funding for her Mammoth Gateway Community Project, up from a previous request of $25,000.

“I’m highly skeptical that we could get that much,” she said to the commissioners, who answered her with their own skepticism.

Warm weather allows Airport Road to get facelift

January 6, 2012

It might just be the first time in history that it’s been possible to patch asphalt cracks in the middle of January.

Normally a job for the short summer months, roadwork in Mono County comes to a screeching halt every winter.

Except this one
.
Not only is there no snow, it’s been in the 50s and 60s during the day—warm enough to set finicky tar asphalt patches.

The funky and cracked road to the Mammoth Yosemite Airport will be getting a facelift in the next week or so, despite a bit of tug-o-war between the county supervisors Tuesday.
