Storms could usher in wetter than normal July

July 10, 2014

The sound of rain on windows and roofs this weekend ushered in what could be a wetter than normal July, according to the National Weather Service.

As much as 200 percent of normal precipitation could occur, according to the National Center for Environmental Prediction.

Political Science

July 10, 2014

We love a good contradiction in terms, particularly of the false dichotomy stripe.

The term “Political Science” is a real knee-slapper, given our relationships to both politics and science around here.

The politics speaks for itself. Nothing short of the Fourth of July Fireworks could match Mammoth and the Eastside this past political season.

That is not a complaint, by the way.

And the science speaks for itself as well.

Geologists warn of quakes in new report

July 10, 2014

In a major new report on earthquake scenarios in the Mammoth area, geologists say they have identified five faults in Long Valley capable of producing temblors of 6.7 or greater—roughly as strong as the 1994 Northridge quake.

Along with scientific data, the scientists say planners in the area should include the data in preparing future scenarios that would impact everything from property destruction to emergency health care.

Reds shuttle inspections surprise riders

July 10, 2014

Pulling over a couple of Reds Meadow shuttle buses for unannounced vehicle inspections on the busiest day on the busiest road of the entire summer season wasn’t exactly guaranteed to make the California Highway Patrol the most popular player in town.

It happened on Saturday, July 5, and the lines to get on the shuttle buses that take visitors and hikers to Devils Postpile National Monument from Mammoth Mountain’s Adventure Center were dozens deep and yards long.

More ‘fireworks’ at Crowley Lake

July 10, 2014

BRIDGEPORT—Fred Stump might have thought it was going to be a routine Fourth of July at Crowley Lake.

It wasn’t.

Stump, the supervisor representing South County and Crowley Lake, instead found himself in charge of a makeshift emergency command post after Mono County Sheriff Ralph Obenberger, citing budget concerns over overtime pay, held back the county’s mobile command post.

New records at Freedom Mile

July 10, 2014

People clad in red, white, and blue attire lined Old Mammoth Road last week in anticipation of the annual Independence Day Parade, but first they watched nearly 450 runners competing for top honors in the Ninth Annual Footloose Freedom Mile.

“We weren’t just competing for the win—we were competing for pie,” said race winner Gabe Proctor, 24. “When I heard Deena was making pies for the winners, I knew I had to race.”

According to the Mono County Sheriff’s Department, for a 24-hour period, the hiker attempted to relocate the trail, but she then became ill and she stayed in place overnight.
