What's Up, Up Here? Mar. 15-21

March 19, 2013

 

Just when we thought everyone knew about us, more or less, here comes National Geographic, which named Mammoth among the Top 10 “emerging ski towns.” We’re not sure it that is a compliment or not. Reno’s on the list, too, although for us, it’s hard to think of Biggest Little Cityas a ski town. …

Garbage woes persist

March 19, 2013

 

Town, county can’t agree how to solve long-term problem

Not long ago, Mono County taxpayers were sending a decent chunk of their hard-earned cash to a garbage disposal enterprise fund that was draining the county coffers to the tune of thousands of dollars a week, every week, when the recession hit the region.

Next meeting scheduled April 4 in Bishop

Almost everything people see in almost every direction on the Eastside is part of the huge Inyo National Forest—about two million acres of granite peaks, forest, sagebrush meadows and fast-dropping creeks that water an otherwise desert landscape.

‘Obamacare’ could double number of people eligible for Medi-Cal in county

We can’t wait to meet Mammoth’s new director of community development, whoever that is.

Judging by the job description, he or she will, ideally, possess superhuman powers, with an ability to juggle a minimum of 19 specific job duties and about a dozen peripheral duties.

He or she also must leap tall buildings in a single bound, and demonstrate superhuman strength, speed, stamina, invulnerability, freezing breath, super hearing, multiple extrasensory and vision powers, longevity, flight, intelligence, and regeneration.

Comments on the Mammoth Trails website

March 19, 2013

 

I have two comments on last week’s article titled “Mammoth Trails website springs to life.”

The Mammoth Lakes Trails System Coordinating Committee June 28, 2012, minutes note the total cost of the trails website as “approximately $225,000.”

Measure R funds and Town General Funds were the major contributor, along with some private funds. 

That amount, plus the approximately $30,000 budgeted for first year maintenance totals more than one quarter of a million dollars.
