Congratulations from Del Norte

October 14, 2013

I’d like to offer my congratulations to Mono County for being honored with a special award from the California State Association of Counties (CSAC), which annually recognizes innovative, cost-effective county programs that improve service.

Mono County, specifically the behavioral health department, was honored at this week’s Board of Supervisors meeting for an innovative program that started with taking the blood pressure of every behavioral health consumer who walked into the office.

Thank you Mammoth Disposal drivers!

October 14, 2013

In the spirit of the recently launched Choose Civility campaign, I would li ke to publicly acknowledge people who have “just been nice” all summer long. 

I am referring to the Mammoth Disposal drivers who make the daily trek (multiple times) on the Green Church road (Benton Crossing). 

As a new road cyclist, I was nervous about riding along this stretch of road with big trucks. 

Take your TVs to the dump, people!

October 14, 2013

I was just at the Cast-Off dropping off some donations and I was dismayed by the dozen or so TVs that people had thoughtlessly dumped behind the store.

What an act of cowardice!  

If you have a vehicle big enough to transport these TVs, you should go just a few miles south down U.S. 395, turn left at Benton Crossing, and dispose of these unwanted TVs in a responsible way.

It only costs a few dollars.  

Mammoth is full of kind, caring people

On Wednesday, Sept. 18, my husband and I were visiting Minaret Vista.  

I fell and hit my head on the ledge of the flagstone step.  

I thought I was fine but after a second I realized I had a very bad gash on my scalp.  

There was a very nice lady there with her parents who went to her car and got a first aid kit.  

She packed my wound with gauze and put tape on it to hold it in place, and then she helped my husband get me to our car.  

Yard sale thanks

October 14, 2013

Thank you to all the parents, staff, players, and shoppers who helped make our yard sale a success. 

The Mammoth High School Girls’ Soccer Team is working hard to reach our fundraising goals for the upcoming season.  

The community of Mammoth always seems to come through. 

We can’t do it without you, so thanks!

Mammoth bears are better behaved than our town council

October 14, 2013

One bear got out of line and went to Vons for some apples, but at least we have a Wildlife Specialist to teach them it is out of bounds.

Why don’t we have someone to step in when the town council gets out of control?

Our black bears know they can’t violate the Brown Act, but council members don’t know better than to conduct “serial meetings” individually with someone they want to launch into the town manager’s position. 

We need a Council Wildlife Specialist to jump in here. 

A call to action

October 14, 2013

It's been over a week now, and The Shutdown has had a widespread negative effect across the country.

The first U.S. government shutdown in 17 years closed major landmarks and halted some services, throwing as many as 800,000 federal employees out of work.

To make matters worse, a potential default looms on the horizon, yet both Democrats and Republicans continue to talk past each other.
