'Motocross Mom' is back in Mammoth, still in love

June 17, 2011

For more than three decades, the “Motocross Mom” had a dual love affair.

It is now broken in half. Gale Webb, whom Mammoth Motocross organizer Laurey Carlson characterized as “the face of the Motocross,” lost her beloved husband Jim just three weeks ago.

But Webb is here for this year’s event because her love affair with Mammoth still goes on.

“Someday I will join Jim and we will be up here together.

Food & Wine Experience of Blue Sky Fest offers best of both, and music, too

June 17, 2011

ARE YOU EXPERIENCED?

It’s a blue sky day.
In Mammoth that means mountains in clear relief against a cobalt sky, lakes and rivers that sparkle and rush.

And it’s Saturday: Day 2 of the Blue Sky Fest, spread out around and adjacent to the grounds of Cerro Coso College.

The newest facet of this festival is the Blue Sky Experience – a cooking competition; seminars on wine and food pairings, complete with demonstrations; 20 wineries pouring exquisite tastings; and a live auction – all wrapped up in music by City Folk, Strunz and Farah, Vance Gilbert and the Tito Puente, Jr. Orchestra.

Hard Day's Night for Town Council

June 17, 2011

Grim work on Town
finances cuts, and cuts, and cuts

There may as well have been blood in the streets.

The Mammoth Lakes Town Council, facing a shortfall budget of more than $2 million and a deadline of June 22 for a reckoning, took out its machetes on Wednesday night and got to work on the finances.

Three police officers will have to go. Any improvements to the town’s dilapidated police station are a ha-ha-ha.

At least one staffer – maybe more – will have to leave Public Works.

Airport service to include Orange, San Diego

June 17, 2011

Ready to have 50,000 people land on your front porch?

Literally.

Under plans announced this week, Mammoth’s airport next winter will handle four flights a day, seven days a week. It will also handle seven flights a day on the busy Friday-Saturday-Sunday-Monday weekends.

Moreover, the airport will serve travelers from San Diego and Orange County for the first time, fulfilling the wishes of Mammoth-loving SoCals who found the trip to Los Angeles International as irritating as the six-eight-hour drive up here.
