Are our airline subsidies working against us?

January 11, 2013

 

This is our experience-you decide.

Flying home to Mammoth from our vacation, we over-nighted in Dallas.  The next morning, Dec. 19 , we got up at 2:30 a.m. to catch the early flight to LAX in order to make the morning flight on Alaska/Horizon Air to Mammoth.   We purposely had booked that flight so we could get back to work that afternoon during this busy holiday period.

An inspiring evening of poetry

To all my wonderful patients

January 11, 2013

 

I have received great personal reward from dentistry over the years, but the time has come for me to retire from private practice.

Although I won’t be seeing you in my office, you and your family will remain in my thoughts. I appreciate the confidence you have placed in me by allowing me to serve your dental needs.

Mono County

January 11, 2013

 

We went looking for the face of Mono County this week, but we didn’t find it.

We tried straining our ears for the voice of Mono County, but it was so quiet in Bridgeport that all we heard was the breeze fanning the fog over the Mono Basin and the occasional—and distant—roar of a snowmobile.

The curious vacuum in the county’s halls of politics has taken nearly everyone by surprise.

RAW: Flu season has arrived and it's going to be a doozy

January 8, 2013

Hot off the press, Mono County Public Health Officer Rick Johnson warns that the current flu season is imminent and shaping up to be the worst in a long time.

"It’s been a little over a month since our last Mono-Gram discussed the probability of an early and bad flu season. Well, it is now happening.

Big-Mountain rider Jeremy Jones tips cap to Ski Patrol

January 4, 2013

 

Action film star, snowboard entrepreneur, in Mammoth this weekend

Jeremy Jones says he has a good idea what the worst job in the mountains might be.

“I think what the ski patrols do in places like Mammoth, Squaw, Jackson Hole, Aspen, you know, avalanche prone areas, first, I would not want the avalanche forecast job, nor the Ski Patrol.”

Selters to present dazzling multi-media show at Edison Theatre

January 4, 2013

 

Mountaineer is back from the Eastern Karakoram

Back from perhaps his most important expedition yet, Andy Selters has produced what’s likely to become his most memorable show.

With three Canadians and four Indian-Nepalese climbers, Selters ventured to a restricted and barely-explored area at the northern tip of India, the Eastern Karakoram.

Fido & Me: New Year

January 4, 2013

 

“Happy New Year, Fido!”

“What?”

“It’s a new beginning, Big Boy. Out with the old and in with the new!”

I reached into the closet for Fido’s New Year’s hat. It’s a silver, pointy, cardboard thing with an elastic chinstrap, and on the front it says “Happy New Year.” Actually, Fido’s goofy New Year’s cap looks just like mine.

“I don’t get it.”

Let’s not live in fear

January 4, 2013

 

I am writing to respond to the article on the cover of the Dec.21 edition titled “Atmospheric river” pattern threatens to flood California.”

I can understand the impact which occurred in December 1861 and the devastation it must of had. However things aren’t exactly the same as 1861.

All the major rivers in southern California are hundreds of feet wide and deep, lined with concrete.

Thank you Council and Staff: Happy New Year!

January 4, 2013

 

We all need to start the New Year with a pat on the back to the Mammoth Lakes Town Council and Staff.

They solved the MLLA judgment crisis without taxing the innocent. We should all appreciate how hard it is to make difficult decisions that affect people and friends. The Council could have taken the easy way out by taxing homeowners. Thankfully, they did not follow that unfair path. Thank you.
