Playhouse 395 presents killer show

September 24, 2010

The community is invited to a wedding reception and the party won’t come to a close until someone is dead!

You haven’t had an invitation like this one before, you say? “I’m Getting Murdered in the Morning” is Playhouse 395’s first mystery dinner theater event Oct. 7 - 10 at the Bishop Country Club banquet room.
Audience members are invited to guess who-dun-it, becoming guests at the most unlikely wedding celebration ever attended.

Huskies use video in game preparation

September 24, 2010

It might have been a bye week for the Mammoth Huskies last week, but that didn’t mean that Head Coach Tom Gault and his coaching crew took the weekend off.

Instead, they got their video equipment in order and traveled to Murrieta, where they watched, analyzed and shot video of Calvary Murrieta’s 16-6 loss to Bloomington Christian – a loss that dropped Mammoth’s next opponent to 0-2 for the season.

Calvary Murrieta comes calling tonight at Gault/McClure Stadium, with a JV game at 4 o’clock and the varsity at 7.

When leaves that are green turn to gold

September 24, 2010

Alchemy is a word that can be loosely defined as that which happens when one element becomes another; when one thing transforms to another thing.

September 24, 2010

Mammoth High School XC runners on their way

September 24, 2010

The 2010 Mammoth High School Cross Country season is off and running, with two large invitationals under its belt. On Sept. 10, Mammoth traveled to the Whittel Warrior invitational in Zephyr Cove at Lake Tahoe, Calif.

More than 30 high schools came together to compete and see who was “best of the best.” Mammoth only brought seven of its members, but showed the much larger schools they should not be overlooked.

Jack Laws, Sierra Field Guide author, artist at Booky Joint

September 24, 2010

It’ll be some kind of book signing Saturday afternoon, Sept. 25, at the Booky Joint, where John Muir “Jack” Laws not only will sign his swell new guidebook, but also will offer some artistic demonstrations.

Laws will sprinkle how-to demos in illustration, painting and sketching at the event, which starts at one o’clock and ends at 3.

Dave Leonard, owner of the bookstore, said Laws is a very entertaining guest, and for the Booky Joint to have him is a real treat.

He said refreshments will be served during the book signing, but the book is a refreshment in itself.

Lost day-hiker spends a night in the Minaret Wilderness, is found the next day

September 21, 2010

For a one day-hiker in the Minaret Wilderness, an ordinary day-hike on Monday turned into a day-night sojurn, finishing with a helicopter ride.

The hiker, a 22-year-old man who was separated from his friends near Devils Postpile National Monument, spent Monday night in the Minaret Wilderness before being picked up by helicopter Tuesday morning with help from the Mono County Search and Rescue team.

The hiker’s identity and home town were not known as of Tuesday afternoon. He was unhurt, said Pete DeGeorge of the sheriff’s department.

September 21, 2010

The fiery car accident on U.S. 395 that resulted in the deaths of two teenage cross country runners and a cheerleading coach from Southern California on Aug. 9 was at least partly due to driver error, according to a California Highway Patrol report.

Local artsts' photos on canvas draw raves at Arts Fest

September 20, 2010

If people were to canvass the two artists at Bluebird Imaging, they’d discover that Kendra Knight and Aaron Horowitz are wild about canvas.

“The appeal to me would be that it looks more painterly,” said Knight, half of the husband-and-wife team. Together, they dazzled shoppers at last week’s Labor Day Festival of the Arts with photographs printed on canvas, then stretched on a 3-D display board.

'Tis the season for fattening up

September 20, 2010

On our calendar, we see the Millpond Music Festival is coming up this weekend, signaling either the end of summer or the beginning of fall.

Whatever. One thing is for certain: the fall shoulder season is here, and all around us, everyone is fattening up.

The bears are getting more plump, for sure, and as they lumber through the town, they no doubt notice with disheartening alarm that the sloppy visitors are gone and the dumpsters are secure again. Bummer for them, we suppose.

Bike shops are turning into ski shops. Around here, that’s like aspens turning. Time is getting short.

The Everest Challenge: Take it to the limit!

September 20, 2010

 

It doesn’t take a physics professor to tell you that the two-day Everest Challenge bike race attracts an odd set of cyclists.

“There’s something about the human spirit that makes us wonder exactly what we can do,” said race director Steven Barnes, who happens to be an adjunct professor of physics at Cal State-San Bernardino. “This race is out there, pretty close to the limits.”

These runners are Ultra nuts

September 20, 2010

 

If you’re a distance runner in Mammoth, chances are you’re already working the outer fringes of sanity, but then there are some events that go beyond that, such as tomorrow’s Moeben Ultra 50K and 25K races in the Mammoth Mountain Bike Park.

Organized by Andrew Kastor and Elaine Smith of the High Sierra Striders, the race begins at the crack of morning, 6:30 a.m., and the runners hope to clear the first part of the race on top of Mammoth Mountain by 11 o’clock. It is shaping up to be quite a challenge for everyone.

Huskies recalibrate their offense, defense and attitudes

September 20, 2010

 

The Mammoth Huskies have had a week to lick their wounds, daub their eyes and otherwise try to recover from last week’s 27-0 debacle against Mission College Prep of San Luis Obispo.

At the same time, Head Coach Tom Gault’s coaching staff has two weeks to try to recalibrate last week’s sucky offense and out-of-kilter defense. Whether any of their work pays off will be revealed next Friday night, when the Calvary Murietta Warriors (0-1) come calling at Gault-McClure Stadium.
