There is a lot to take in this week.
Everywhere we go, the look is the same: grief and resolve and, dare we say it, acceptance.

Especially the acceptance part.
Many people that lose their homes to a fire never get there, blaming firefighters, their neighbors, the state and federal agencies that manage the land.

For the past few years, Mammoth’s Town Council has slowly but surely been outsourcing some of its direct supervision over town functions to a variety of non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Winter Woe

August 28, 2014

We keep hearing the same thing, over and over again. 

“I sure hope it snows.” “We need it to snow, or I’m going to have to sell the business.” “The market isn’t going to come back until it snows.”
