Fido & Me — Fido the writer

September 21, 2012

“I’d like to make a paragraph but I don’t know how to do it,” Fido said.

“It’s not too hard, Fido. Just press the ‘return’ key and then hit the ‘tab’ key and you’re hunky dory. Do you mind if I ask what you’re doing?”

Fido was quite a sight. He had managed to pull on a green copy-editor visor and was now scrunched over the keyboard.

“I am going to be the first dog member of the Outdoor Writers Association of California!” he cried.

He had all the necessary stuff. Where and how he learned to pack a notebook, a digital camera, and a GoPro, I have no idea.

Rental housing demand still robust, points to the slow, local economy

September 21, 2012

The demand for rentals in Mono County has dropped somewhat since the recession hit the Mammoth Lakes area in 2009 but it is still high, even as the economy slowly recovers, according to county officials.

Huskies home tonight

September 21, 2012

The Mammoth Huskies showed plenty of improvement last Friday night (Sept. 14) in Rosamond, but it wasn’t enough to get them their first victory of the season.

Playing on the road for the second straight game, Mammoth lost, 35-13, dropping them to 0-4 for the season. So far, the team has been out scored 190-52, but there’s still plenty of football left.

Next up is Riverside Prep from Oro Grande, which comes to Mammoth’s Gault/McClure Stadium tonight (Friday) for a 7 p.m. kickoff. The JV kickoff is at 4 p.m.
