Kid computer ace, inspired by Mammoth, writes emergency application for iPhone

December 30, 2011

He is 17 years old.

But Nick Entin of Palos Verdes isn’t just another high school skier, though there’s nothing in his outward appearance to suggest otherwise.

And then he whips out his iPhone. On it is his imaginative, 99-cent iPhone application, called Emergency Beacon. With one push of a button he can connect with first responders in case of an emergency.

We made noise in 2011, and so did nature

It’s a tiny little place in a remote part of the country.

Yet Mammoth has all the ingredients for a rich stew of colliding agencies—federal, state, county and local, plus extreme weather.

We have colliding interest groups. We have people who are passionate.

We have top-notch scientists working our water, woods and mountains. They take their findings back to their universities. Their colleagues marvel at the work they do here.

We have sport, too. Lots of sport.

We run, we ski, we ride, we backpack. We compete in Motocross. We ride road bikes.

On March 1, it started to snow and we got 15 feet in the month of March—not a lot, but enough to call it ‘The March Miracle’ by alla the locals. Then there was the winter of 1976-77 where we waited and waited and waited. The snow never came.
