Bracing for the worst flu season in decades

‘This is not something to mess with,’ says Mono County health officer

The warning from the county’s top health official is stark.

“It’s coming, it’s inevitable, and it’s going to be a very bad season for the flu,” said Dr. Rick Johnson, the Mono County Public Health Officer. “We have already had six confirmed flu cases since the beginning of this year, and that means it’s already here.”

Targets families, larger groups

Suddenly, things are beginning to sizzle along the southern section of the Old Mammoth Road neighborhood.

Once a lonesome outpost for the Cast-Off and the Southern California Edison Building, the area by the end of 2014 could have the new Rock ’n Bowl recreation center/restaurant as well as three new buildings as part of a proposed expansion by the Mammoth Creek Inn.

Fido & Me Commander in Chief

“Hey hey hey hey!” Fido yelled over his shoulder. “I am really like-like-LIKING this guy!”

Fido got a big goofy grin on his face.

“We’ve been talking! He likes the same things I do!”

“Wow that’s good to hear, Big Boy. You never know how a cat is going to fit in.”

“He’ll be just GREAT!” Fido said. He nuzzled the cat and whispered something in the cat’s ear.

Kudos for Double Eagle Resort

I want to give kudos to Double Eagle Resort and its staff for their efforts and investment in creating a new cross-country skiing opportunity in June Lake. 

The new groomed path in Silver Lake Meadow is great!

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.

To all my wonderful patients

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.
