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.

Tamarack slammed; problems emerge

April 10, 2014

Droves of people discovered the Lakes Basin this past winter, but that was not altogether a good thing, according to the general manager of the Tamarack Lodge and Cross Country Ski Center.

“We’ve had problems before, but it’s gotten worse,” said Roy Moyer, who brought his concerns to a meeting of the Mammoth Lakes Trails Committee on Monday, April 7.

“Three years ago, when we also didn’t have a lot of snow, it wasn’t as big an issue. This year was just really hard.”

Bighorn move toward recovery; reintroductions expand species back into historical range

April 7, 2014

The recovery of the endangered Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep took one more step forward last month with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s second reintroduction effort since 1986.

In late March, they translocated 14 bighorn to a remote part of Sequoia National Park, which has been devoid of bighorn since the early 20th century.

“It was such a huge milestone to get these [bighorn] sheep into the Kern,” said biologist Tom Stephenson, program leader for the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Recovery Program.

Off the Trail: Snowseeker

April 6, 2014

The metal-edged Kahru skis snapped to my old leather three-pin boots, gold and grey and well acquainted with rocks.

They need to be.

It has taken me an hour to get from the “Snopark” trailhead to this snowy meadow near Rock Creek Lake, a mile that would normally take about five minutes of easy skiing.

But it has hardly snowed this winter and even with the past week of storms we’ve only received a measly 18 feet since November where there should be 40.

Eight years in the making

April 3, 2014

Eight years ago Drs. Mike Karch and Kim Escudero set out to create a grass roots movement to generate excitement about Nordic sports and thought that biathlon was the perfect sport considering its popularity in Europe and its combination of challenging skills. 

The biathlon movement that they started has grown into one of the annual premier events in our area.  This year, even with a late announcement due to lack of early snow, 236 athletes participated, including 70+ youth, disabled and Wounded Warriors, beginner adults, Masters, elite and Olympian racers.
