Regarding Mammoth Lakes Public Arts Commission

February 24, 2012

I am one of the Public Arts Commission (PAC) members. I have been on the PAC since its inception. I am resigning, not out of a sense of pique over the Town Council’s decision last Wednesday to give the gateway monument project $250,000 of PAC funds, but out of a recognition of the realities of the situation.

We want to help in picking up sticks!

February 24, 2012

Regarding “Pick up sticks … the really huge ones,” (Jan. 13, 2012), the Student Conservation Association is sharpening its crosscut saws and hoping to do our part to help open hiking and riding trails on the Inyo National Forest, specifically within the Mammoth Ranger District.
 

Thank you, anonymous person

February 20, 2012

On Jan. 7, a very nice person found my ATM card and driver license at the Sierra Center Mall and returned them to the police station. 

This person did not leave his or her name. I just want to thank him or her for being so kind!

Fireworks at Crowley Lake need to stay

February 20, 2012

I would hope that the Town finds the funds to continue the long and cherished tradition of the Crowley Lake fireworks on the 4th of July. 

Inaccuracies in previous letter

January 6, 2012

The letter titled “For the Nordic Record,” submitted by Brian Knox and published in the Dec. 23, 2011, edition, contains factual inaccuracies that we would like to address here.

The Town of Mammoth Lakes—not MLTPA—has submitted a Measure R application for a multi-year funding commitment supporting a cooperative effort between the Town and the Inyo National Forest to establish and maintain the Mammoth Lakes Trail System (MLTS).

COLDER, WETTER, LONGER WINTERS
I could not help but laugh at “Sierra Could Be Hit Hard by Climate Change,” (Mammoth Times, May 13, 2011) as I looked out my window at still bud-less trees and a snowpack almost four times normal. Science use to be based on definite observation and facts which were either true or false. Now it’s “could, might, maybe, if.” And no wonder. Anyone who pays attention to the weather lately might think winters were getting colder around here, not warmer. And they would be correct.

GREAT SEASON FOR MAMMOTH REP
On behalf of the Mammoth Lakes Foundation and the Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre, I’d like to thank our guests and sponsors who made the 2010/2011 season at Edison Theatre a huge success! I am truly honored by the number of sold out nights and cannot express enough thanks to all of you.

All of our patrons were so gracious to our guest artists and made them feel at home in Mammoth. From Beau Bridges and his family to Gail Matthius and her improv group, everyone who performed at Edison Theatre is excited to return.

MAMMOTH ER ROCKS
Recently, I needed immediate medical attention. My visit to Mammoth Hospital’s emergency room, created by an abscessed tooth infection, and a touch of pneumonia, was mandatory.

After careful scrutiny, some retracted comments from myself, and an accurate diagnosis, I came to a conclusion.

The staff at Mammoth’s facility won my gratitude, and my heart. To see the emergency room’s pageant of “needy,” busted up folks I love, helped, in an organized fashion, rendered me quite appreciative. You employees “rock!”

TIME FOR MAMMOTH TO PAY UP
This lawsuit has been going on now for around 14 years. I understand that the city does not want to pay and should do what it can to not pay. I would bet that if Mr. Terry Ballas owed the city of Mammoth $30 Mil they sure would not let it go this long. This is a good example of how big government can mess with someone.

The court system has more than once told the city to pay up, but still after 14 years they have not paid the man what is due him. If the city can hold out for more years, Mr. Ballas will be broke and may not be around to get what is due him.
