Sansom's Cash for Candy enters second year

October 26, 2010

Following All Hallows Eve, trick-or-treaters trickle into the dentist’s office to trade in their loot. At times, “we’ve seen great reluctance,” said local dentist Byron Sansom.

“Last year, a child came in with two bags. He said, ‘you can have this bag, but you can’t have the other one,’” referring to his personal stash.

Dr. Sansom transforms trick-or-treat with his second annual ‘cash for candy’ event that captures the hearts of local kids, their parents, and military personnel. This year, he joins forces with a newly formed movement to focus on the troops who call Mono County home.

Mammoth Mountain starts snowmaking

October 26, 2010

Workers at Mammoth Mountain Ski Area began making snow Monday night after temperatures dipped well into the 20s – cold enough to start.

The snowmaking operation was still underway Tuesday afternoon on Broadway, with temperatures steady at 36 degrees and calm winds.

Snowmaking is possible only when the outside temperature is below 42.8 degrees F (six degrees C). On Monday night, the temperature at Main Lodge hovered in the mid- to low 30s for most of night, hitting its nadir at 29 degrees.
