Thanks to the local community

June 22, 2012

I would like to take this opportunity to thank several members of our community for their generosity in donating time and products to our Curbside a Meal fundraiser benefitting Mammoth High School Football.
Times are tough for businesses and individuals and despite the challenges, our community came together with donations and time commitments to make it happen.
The following businesses helped to make the tri-tip dinner a success: Rafters, CJ’s Grill, Grumpy’s, Mammoth Mountain, Roberto’s, Good Life Café, Toomey’s, and John’s Pizza.

Fire and hubris

June 22, 2012

There is no natural reason for people to live in Mammoth Lakes. None. But we live here anyway because we like to have seasons loaded with fun.

We ski. We hike. We climb. We ride bikes, drive off road, pull fish from the water and then do it all again.
We pay a price to live here, though, and the price tag varies depending on the bill Mother Nature whips up in her ledger book.

This summer the price tag has to do with fire—indiscriminant, deadly and entirely natural. Wendilyn Grasseschi’s story, beginning on Page 1., captures the situation.

State fire crews, Lee Vining residents work together to make community garden flourish

June 22, 2012

State fire crews and Lee Vining community members created an unusual coalition earlier this month and the result is both historical—and edible.

A community garden and a much needed update to the community Lee Vining museum are now complete after much hard work by members of the Cal Fire Owens Valley Conservation Camp, and kids and adults from Lee Vining.

Risky business; the 2012 fire season is off to a bad start

June 22, 2012

It is the first week of summer and the Eastern Sierra is almost 50 percent drier than average for this time of year.

A bark beetle infestation on June Mountain and in the Sherwin Range above Mammoth stands red and dry as an old bone. It won’t take much to start a fire there.
