The Mammoth Lakes Police Department is investigating multiple vandalism to street signs and snow stakes that occurred overnight on Friday, Nov. 23.
A total of 29 snow stakes were discovered bent over with some of them in traffic lanes. The majority of them were on Main Street east of Minaret.
The others were near the Village on Hillside, Canyon, Minaret, and lower Lakeview.
It’s official: Vons’ big remodel is set for April with the pharmacy and Starbucks moving up to the old Elegant Bath space next to the Minaret Cinema and to the atrium space within the mall. Also up for a re-do is the outside of the building, with special emphasis on fixing the “skateboard steps” conundrum. …
The Mammoth Lakes Planning Commission took a giant leap into the future Tuesday, stepping in the Wayback Machine for solutions to some ancient issues.
Under the macroscope, as it were, was how Mammoth is to deal with its sign ordinances (specifically banners); how it deals with special events; and how it is to manage outdoor sales (specifically tent sales).
If it seemed like the commission was plowing old ground, it was.
But with a zoning code update scheduled for early next year, the old issues resurfaced in a 9 a.m. workshop with business owners.
Whitmore Pool, scheduled to close next summer because of austerity cuts by the Town of Mammoth Lakes, may yet stay open.
The townâ€™s recreation commission, to meet at 2 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 26, will consider moving $185,000 in Measure R tax funds to save the pool from going under.
The proposed bailout is part of a broader consideration of which projects are to receive funding in the latest round of Measure R requests, from cross-country ski trail grooming to rehabilitating the community tennis courts.
â€śWEâ€™RE UNDER ATTACK!â€ť
Fido buried his nose under the couch. He would have scrunched all the way under, but biscuits have taken their toll. Even if he were slender, he wouldnâ€™t fit.
â€śTHEREâ€™S ANOTHER ONE!â€ť he yelped, and dug his nose deeper under the couch. I noticed he was shaking, too.
â€śFido, just what in the world are you doing?â€ť
â€śAre you deaf, man?â€ť Fido wanted to know.
â€śI didnâ€™t hear anything unusual, Old Boy, except for the sweet sound of avalanche control on The Mountain. Right on time. Must be 6:30 a.m..â€ť
â€śYou call that sweet? Have you been watching the news?â€ť
