On behalf of the many community volunteers who donate their time and expertise each year to ensure the continuing success of the Sierra Summer Festival in Mammoth Lakes, I want to express our heartfelt appreciation and thanks for your donation of your gifts to the silent auction in support of the Sierra Summer Festival 2012.
The following businesses are Ben and Jerry’s and Lingerie Lounge in the Village, Aveda In Touch Spa near Schat’s and Patti Millison of Hang on Massage and Yoga in Bishop.
Editor’s note: The following is a letter that was originally sent by part time June Lake resident Michael Bogash to Rusty Gregory via snail mail several weeks ago, via certified mail, according to Bogash. On Thursday, Bogash said he sent the letter to Gregory’s office via email. This time, Bogash received an email stating that Gregory had not received the original letter and that he would contact Bogash “within the next few days.”
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter.
After the “Great Debacle,” the “Settlement That Ate Mammoth,” whatever you want to call it, both George Shirk, news editor of the Mammoth Times and Jack Lunch, editor of the Sheet News, wrote articles about that settlement.
George, a thoughtful individual and nice guy, opined that now the litigation was settled, we should put it behind us, and move on. An end to the finger pointing is a good thing, he said, the blame game and negative thinking. It’s counterproductive and won’t get us anywhere.
Sadly, before my recent trip, I hadnâ€™t visited the Mammoth Lakes area for a long time, having been a regular winter visitor when I lived in Southern California. Back then I saw the mountain, the condo, the restaurants and the clubs. It had never occurred to me that this was also a wonderful summer recreation area. Boy, was I surprised.
If you stand on top of Mammoth Mountain and are not obsessed with skiing down in one piece, you can take the time to look around, and what you see is the 10-by-20 mile Long Valley Caldera.
Thank you to all who participated in Wednesday’s first session of Mammoth Moves! We had a total of 12 participants, representing the following agencies, organizations, and businesses: CERT, Environmental Health, Mammoth Hospital, Mammoth Lakes Police Department, Mammoth Village Properties, Mono County Behavioral Health, Mono County Health Department, Nutrition & Physical Activity Taskforce, Recreation Commission, The Westin, Women, Infants & Children (WIC) Program, among other community members.
