Unleashed humans

July 17, 2014

One of the best things about Mammoth is that this town (and its people) love dogs. We often refer to Mammoth and the Eastern Sierra as the biggest dog park since dogs are welcomed in town and on our National Forest Service land (unlike national parks like Yosemite).

It seems as if everyone has a dog in Mammoth, as if it is a prerequisite to reside here.

Visitors also love Mammoth because they can bring their four footed friends with them. We have dog friendly hotels and businesses with doggie treats at check out counters.

Political Science

July 10, 2014

We love a good contradiction in terms, particularly of the false dichotomy stripe.

The term “Political Science” is a real knee-slapper, given our relationships to both politics and science around here.

The politics speaks for itself. Nothing short of the Fourth of July Fireworks could match Mammoth and the Eastside this past political season.

That is not a complaint, by the way.

And the science speaks for itself as well.

Our Backward Fourth

The Fourth of July is upon us.

Five years ago, the Mammoth Lakes Police Department and its chief, Randy Schienle, were taking heavy fire.

After two years of controversy, including investigations into four separate incidents and allegations, the chief read an eight-page letter to the Town Council in his own defense, and then resigned shortly thereafter.

The editorial staff at the Mammoth Times has gone to great lengths to aggressively cover the campaigns leading up to the election on June 3.

 

A tip of our hat

It’s been a long, exhausting, and—at times—stressful campaign season (so far) for those running, working behind the scenes, and covering it all.

 

A tip of our hat

May 22, 2014

It’s been a long, exhausting, and—at times—stressful campaign season (so far) for those running, working behind the scenes, and covering it all.

We have less than two weeks left until Election Day, and this causes us to reflect on the past several months.

Amid our reflection, we couldn’t help but refer to the various businesses and community members who have engaged forcefully in the campaigns—some before the season even started.

Naiveté

May 8, 2014

We hate to throw a wet blanket on the election campaign, but we’ve just about had enough with some of the earnest handwringing by some the candidates.

 

How Not To Vote

We’ve heard a lot of chatter recently over the upcoming June 3 election.

 

The Candidates

April 17, 2014

It’s great that the voters of Mammoth have eight candidates for Town Council.

It’s not so great that hardly any of them know what they’re talking about.

In their first public forum of the campaign season this past week, many of the candidates offered solid vision-type of answers to tough questions that were offered by the Chamber of Commerce and the moderator, Brent Truax.

Mostly, though, the candidates came up short on detailed explanations as to how these visions are to be put in place.

It is not entirely their fault.
