In times of trouble, hamsters to the rescue

December 30, 2013

It was a bitter winter morning and his hands were freezing, but former Mammoth Lakes Police Department officer Paul Dostie was in his element.

One hand on a radio handset, another on a yellow legal pad, the sounds of a Vietnamese pop song came across his ham radio from thousands of miles away, tinny and scratchy in the background, he listened intently as orders from Mammoth Hospital came in over the wire.

“We are in lockdown,” came the message. “Only family members will be allowed in. All people must check in to the front desk.”

December 19, 2013

The Mammoth Huskies basketball team, fresh off “character builder” losses at last weekend’s Whittell (Nev.) Tournament, is putting together the finishing touches before they begin play in the Desert Mountain League on Dec. 27.

If their 73-47 loss to Incline and their 71-38 loss to host school Whittell on Saturday was tough to take, their 56-48 victory against Lee Vining might have ameliorated the sting of the losses.

The bright spot in Nevada belonged to Fox Kailiawa.

“It’s not good, it’s horrible,” he said. “It’s as bad as it can get by this time of year.”

He is not talking just about the Christmas and New Year’s Eve holiday weeks, either.
