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.
Well this guy will put the government right inside your hoo-ha. Todd Akin, a Missouri congressman who, by the way is on the Science Committee, let it slip that many in the Republican Party believe that if a woman is â€ślegitimately rapedâ€ť her own bodily trauma will prevent conception from occurring. Â
The conclusion which must be drawn from this statement is that raped women who did become pregnant (about 32,000 a year) must, somewhere deep down in their glands, have wanted to be raped.
The Mammoth Unified School District would like to give a warm thank you to the community for their support of the temporary closing of Minaret Street for the Bluesapalooza Event the first weekend in August.
We thank the Town Council for their continued foresight to support community safety with their action with the temporary closure of the road.
We thank Sean and Joyce Turner who allowed our high school students the opportunity to solicit voluntary donations for folks that wanted to park their cars on Minaret for the event.
Members of The Campaign For A Healthy California would like express their deep appreciation to the all those from Mammoth and other Eastern Sierra communities, including representatives from Mammoth Hospital and the Department of Health, who joined us Tuesday eveningÂ for the showing of the wonderful documentary,Â The Healthcare Movie.
