We’d like to congratulate Mono County Supervisor Fred Stump and the Wilderness Society’s Sally Miller for keeping us up to date on what could be another head-on collision between the federal government and Mono County.
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.
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.
