Let’s not live in fear

January 4, 2013

 

I am writing to respond to the article on the cover of the Dec.21 edition titled “Atmospheric river” pattern threatens to flood California.”

I can understand the impact which occurred in December 1861 and the devastation it must of had. However things aren’t exactly the same as 1861.

All the major rivers in southern California are hundreds of feet wide and deep, lined with concrete.

Thank you Council and Staff: Happy New Year!

January 4, 2013

 

We all need to start the New Year with a pat on the back to the Mammoth Lakes Town Council and Staff.

They solved the MLLA judgment crisis without taxing the innocent. We should all appreciate how hard it is to make difficult decisions that affect people and friends. The Council could have taken the easy way out by taxing homeowners. Thankfully, they did not follow that unfair path. Thank you.

A letter from Gary Boyd

December 21, 2012

 

My wife and I would like to thank the community for the outpouring of well wishes, hugs and prayers—they have certainly helped over the past weeks. 

My doctors have determined that my event was caused by a low-grade brain tumor. 

A plan of treatment from my doctors at University of California San Francisco is in place and I will be starting radiation and chemotherapy in Carson City soon. 

I’m feeling good and I’m working to regain my strength. 

Council should reconsider

December 21, 2012

 

We have owned a condo in Mammoth for many years, and recently contacted the Mammoth Police Department for assistance. The police officers have been responsive. No one knows when the services of the police will be required, and I would strongly urge the Mammoth Lakes Town Council to maintain the level of service and safety net now in place.

A belated thank you

December 7, 2012

 

The Lee Vining Elementary PTO would like to thank all of the volunteers and sponsors who helped make our Annual Halloween Carnival a success. We are humbled by the widespread community support we received throughout Mono County.

The monies the Lee Vining PTO raised from this event will fund supplemental opportunities and supplies for students in the areas of music, P.E. and art. 

Doing what's best for our kids

November 2, 2012

 

Thank you for running your recent article “Four candidates aim for two Eastern Sierra Unified board seats.”

I appreciate the information and coverage you’ve provided for voters and communities of the Eastern Sierra Unified School District. We have some important decisions to make regarding the ESUSD Board of Trustees in this election.

Strong support for Ted Schade our local air pollution control officer

November 2, 2012

 

I, for one, refuse to stand by and not support Ted Schade, our Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control officer, and my friend, who is currently under attack by the City of Los Angeles.

Ted is tirelessly working to ensure public health in the Eastern Sierra and to enforce the laws of our country.

All of us who live here must oppose the strong interests who seek to once again divide and conquer the “Owens Valley folk.” Wolves hunt in that fashion.

Thank you Whiskey Creek

The Senior Class of Mammoth High School 2013 would like to extend our thanks to Whiskey Creek for hosting our fall senior dinners.

Our senior dinners pay for the end of the year senior trip where we get to enjoy the last bits of high school.

Urging a yes vote on Prop. 36

November 2, 2012

 

I urge a yes vote on Proposition 36 on the November ballot. It would change the “Three Strikes” law to permit consideration of the seriousness of the third strike.

As it now stands, a third felony mandates a sentence of 25 years to life regardless of the nature of the offense. It has been imposed for such things as theft of a pair of shoes, a golf club, and a package of bubble gum. Authorities need the flexibility to consider whether the third crime threatens the safety of the public.
