Antique Photos

September 7, 2012

A great example is one of Sun Valley from the top of Dollar Mountain
when there was nothing there except the lodge. It looked lonely out there in the middle of that wide valley.
There are also some photos of the lodge under construction before there was a chairlift on Dollar.

Dancing in the woods- again- this time surrounded by art

September 7, 2012

It has been an unforgettable summer and this weekend kept the momentum going into fall.
With the sounds of bluegrass music coming from the Village and a breathtaking art festival at Sam’s Woodsite, life in Mammoth keeps getting better and better.

Summer time—for most of us—is the best time to kick back and enjoy the outdoor beauty and calm weather.
Autumn usually slows down, but not for us. Every weekend in September is jam-packed with activities and drinking opportunities.

Huskies, Broncos prepare for 'Rivalry Game'; Big problem: much of a rivalry

September 7, 2012

It’s not really much of a rivalry game in the ordinary sense.

In a true rivalry, either one team or the other wins, making each game a toss-up, at any level, whether it’s pro, college or high school.

But in the Mammoth-Bishop series, there haven’t been a whole lot of Huskies victories over the decades.
Two years ago, when the Huskies last visited Bishop, the final was 59-6, but it wasn’t really that close.

Going into that game and asked about the “highlights” of the series, longtime Huskies Head Coach Tom Gault thought for about a tenth of a second and came up empty.

Los Angeles, Mono County try to find common ground

September 7, 2012

The county’s largest landfill, the Benton Crossing landfill, is living on borrowed time.The landfill sits on Los Angeles Department of Water and Power land, and in the past few years, the city has made it clear it wants the site to be rehabilitated as soon as possible after the landfill is full in 2023—with no hope of expanding the site to accommodate growth.

This means a new landfill, or exporting waste out of the area, both of which will be expensive.

This Summer

It is hard to say how Mammoth did this summer, but practically all the indicators suggest it was exactly what we needed.

Fido & Me — Autumn Musings

September 7, 2012

“Hey where did everybody go?” Fido wanted to know. “One minute this place is hoppin’ crazy wild, and the next, nothing. No new dogs to play with. No new sounds. What happened to the hiss of mountain bike tires on the road? And the squealing kids in the pool?”

“Take it easy, Fido,” I said. “It’s that time of the year. A lot of the visitors have gone home. They’re going back to school. They’re going back to work. We’ll see them again next summer, I promise.”
“But, but, but …”

Local cyclists publish guidebook

September 7, 2012

It started with a climbing accident that left local climber and teacher Jim Barnes too injured to climb for a while.

Things did not improve when he stepped on a stingray and his foot got infected.

Not only couldn’t he climb, he couldn’t walk very far.

For a man accustomed to constant physical activity, it was a time of sheer frustration.

He decided to hop on a road bike and that’s when the love affair started.

Conversations have slowed between MMSA and Forest Service

U. S. Forest Service offices and has not been delivered to MMSA, according to forest officials.

Rubber chicken travels to space

September 7, 2012

Thirty-five years ago Wednesday, something extraordinary in the course of human history occurred.
A tiny, nondescript—but powerful—space-faring craft, called Voyager, took to the stars, loaded with greetings, images, music, and art gathered from across the planet Earth and imprinted on an old-fashioned record.

Its mission was simple—to say hello to anyone, anything, that might be listening.
