Thanks for the Ski Day

April 23, 2013

 

Dear Editor,

 

The students and staff of Mammoth Elementary School would like our community to know about a wonderful event that was made available to us by the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area. 

This past Monday and Wednesday, our 2nd-5th grade students were welcomed at the Mountain to enjoy a day of skiing or snowboarding, completely free of charge. 

We appreciate the opportunity to represent our county

The Lee Vining High School Mock Trial team would like to thank the Mono County Bar Association for helping us raise money in support of our program.

The Bar Association hosted a fundraiser last week that helped our team pay for our recent to trip to compete at the Mock Trial State Championship in Riverside.

It does not appear that change is forthcoming

April 16, 2013

 

Everyone had high hopes when three new supervisors were voted in last year. 

It was obvious by the final vote tallies that people were ready for some change. Unfortunately, it does not appear that the change is forthcoming. 

The current Mono County Board of Supervisors appears to have decision constipation as it’s April already and very little has been accomplished—some of which are very questionable.

What a dumb idea

April 16, 2013

 

The attempt to change the name of Minaret to McCoy or whatever is ridiculous!

What a waste of money. McCoy’s name is all over Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, and if that’s not enough name recognition, then let the family pay for the change. This is not the time to spend money for no benefit or gain. This is a dumb idea!

We need action

I was at the June Lake Community Center on Tuesday, April 2, to hear the results of 13 people traipsing around New England trying to figure out what in the world to do with June Mountain.

The culture of a community

April 3, 2013

 

A community gains a character and a personality of its own, because of the culture of its people.

The importance of culture lies in the fact that it is a link between people and their value systems. Culture is that one single bond that ties the people of a region or community together.

We are in the tourism and recreation business

April 3, 2013

 

I would like to respond to your editorial “Nice is Hard” in the Mammoth Times March 22 issue.

Your editorial perfectly illustrates a problem some people have in our community. That is the notion that visitors to our resort who are frustrated, upset, or angry about the problems they face trying to have a fun vacation in Mammoth have somehow offended us and therefore forfeit their expectation of good service or even politeness from us.

That idea is simply not true, worse; it is destructive to our reputation and future business.

Comments on the Mammoth Trails website

March 19, 2013

 

I have two comments on last week’s article titled “Mammoth Trails website springs to life.”

The Mammoth Lakes Trails System Coordinating Committee June 28, 2012, minutes note the total cost of the trails website as “approximately $225,000.”

Measure R funds and Town General Funds were the major contributor, along with some private funds. 

That amount, plus the approximately $30,000 budgeted for first year maintenance totals more than one quarter of a million dollars.    

A bighorn sheep thank you

March 13, 2013

The fundraiser gala “500 and Rising” was a terrific success, sharing with over 150 guests the remarkable story of the wild sheep in our backyard.

On behalf of the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Foundation I would like to thank the friends from near and far who came to show their enthusiasm for Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep, as well as the many people who worked hard to bring about this event.

The price of “go fish”

March 6, 2013

 

It’s all about money. The local and out of town trout fishermen bring in a lot of revenue to the county, and in the process, get to relax and enjoy life.

But, there is a steep price to pay for their enjoyment.  

First of all, there is a definite opposition from the fish and wildlife biologists to trout rearing and planting.

Their philosophy is that such practices disrupt the natural balance of nature and causes big problems for the eco-system.
