RAW: Vaccination clinic this Saturday, Mammoth

May 29, 2013

It’s time to renew Town of Mammoth Lakes dog licenses for the upcoming fiscal year. Join us for our annual license sale/vaccination clinic in the Police Department parking lot on Saturday, June 1 from 4 to 5:30 pm.

If your dog does not need a rabies vaccination update, you can just purchase a license for $20 if your animal is spayed/neutered or $50 if it is not. You don’t need to bring your pet to the clinic unless it needs a vaccination update. Dr. Gaylon TeSlaa and the staff of Alpen Veterinary clinic will be on hand with low cost vaccinations for both dogs and cats.

Presto! Mammoth Lakes Rotary builds a house in Mexico

In one day, a new home for needy Tecate family

Forty-eight Mammoth Rotary Club members and 10 Mammoth and Bishop High School students last Saturday built a house in a single day.

Working in Tecate, Mexico, the Noon Rotary Club put together a home for a deserving Mexican family of three, said Rotarian Dan Watson.

It’s time to allow single-family home rentals

May 29, 2013

I attended the council meeting in December 2012 and voiced my support of providing single-family homeowners with a pathway to TOT compliance.  The council voted at that time to commission a study of the issue. 

We are still waiting for a decision on the issue, but I understand there may be some new movement with the new support of Mammoth Mountain CEO Rusty Gregory and Snowcreek. 

Now is the time for the town council to finally show some leadership and move forward on this issue.

Dear Town of Mammoth Lakes council members

May 29, 2013

I spoke at the council meeting last week against the TBID. I am certainly no public speaker, as was evident. And I am certainly no lawyer, as was also evident.

However, my dad practiced law for several counties and cities in the Bay Area and was the town attorney for multiple towns for many decades.  

He was well known in municipal law circles statewide, and was thus retained many times by Mono and other rural counties for his unique expertise—in taxation, among other things.

Thank you from MHS senior class of 2013

May 29, 2013

A humongous thank you to Nancy Mahannah of Mono County Health Department for organizing our senior activities during STAR testing.

Nancy yearly organizes this symposium for the entire senior class at Mammoth High School. The idea behind the symposium is to help the kids at the end of the school year prepare for the next steps after high school.

It is such a valuable, rewarding experience for the kids to participate in during STAR testing and senior dinners.

TBID’d into oblivion

May 29, 2013

Those who know me would tell you that I harbor no love for government, town or otherwise. When an entity such as the Town of Mammoth Lakes decides to circumvent the democratic process by passing measures of taxation that have otherwise failed to garner approval from voters in the past, I can only assume they missed a valuable lesson from history that revolved around the simple idea of no taxation without representation.

Local blood drive a huge success

May 29, 2013

A BIG “thank you” goes out to all who donated blood at the bi-annual United Blood Services Blood Drive held on May 13, 14, and 15.

The Mammoth Lakes Hospital Auxiliary coordinated the drive, which was held at the Mammoth Fire Department.

Did you know that one unit of blood can help three people and that one out of seven people that go to the emergency room will have to have a blood transfusion? The United States needs approximately 42,000 units of blood A DAY. That’s a whole lot of blood!

Single-family home rentals

May 29, 2013

Once again, the issue of single-family home rentals landed in the lap of the Mammoth Lakes Town Council last week.

Mammoth Mountain Ski Area CEO Rusty Gregory popped in out of the blue and, during an otherwise innocuous workshop discussion about the 2013-14 budget, gave a forceful presentation on why Mammoth ought to have such rentals.

Practically no one saw this coming, except for the proponents of the scheme, who were in the Council Chambers (what a surprise) while the opponents, blissfully unaware that the topic was even under discussion, stayed away.
