It is the Mammoth Rock ‘N’ Bowl, a two-level entertainment/dining facility pushed forward by Mammoth attorney and developer Dan O’Connell and his wife, Andrea, and others in the Mammoth Rock Holding Co.

Antique Photos

September 7, 2012

A great example is one of Sun Valley from the top of Dollar Mountain
when there was nothing there except the lodge. It looked lonely out there in the middle of that wide valley.
There are also some photos of the lodge under construction before there was a chairlift on Dollar.

Dancing in the woods- again- this time surrounded by art

It has been an unforgettable summer and this weekend kept the momentum going into fall.
With the sounds of bluegrass music coming from the Village and a breathtaking art festival at Sam’s Woodsite, life in Mammoth keeps getting better and better.

Huskies, Broncos prepare for 'Rivalry Game'; Big problem: much of a rivalry

September 7, 2012

It’s not really much of a rivalry game in the ordinary sense.

In a true rivalry, either one team or the other wins, making each game a toss-up, at any level, whether it’s pro, college or high school.

But in the Mammoth-Bishop series, there haven’t been a whole lot of Huskies victories over the decades.
Two years ago, when the Huskies last visited Bishop, the final was 59-6, but it wasn’t really that close.

Going into that game and asked about the “highlights” of the series, longtime Huskies Head Coach Tom Gault thought for about a tenth of a second and came up empty.

Los Angeles, Mono County try to find common ground

September 7, 2012

The county’s largest landfill, the Benton Crossing landfill, is living on borrowed time.The landfill sits on Los Angeles Department of Water and Power land, and in the past few years, the city has made it clear it wants the site to be rehabilitated as soon as possible after the landfill is full in 2023—with no hope of expanding the site to accommodate growth.

This means a new landfill, or exporting waste out of the area, both of which will be expensive.

Fido & Me — Autumn Musings

September 7, 2012

“Hey where did everybody go?” Fido wanted to know. “One minute this place is hoppin’ crazy wild, and the next, nothing. No new dogs to play with. No new sounds. What happened to the hiss of mountain bike tires on the road? And the squealing kids in the pool?”

“Take it easy, Fido,” I said. “It’s that time of the year. A lot of the visitors have gone home. They’re going back to school. They’re going back to work. We’ll see them again next summer, I promise.”
“But, but, but …”
