The midterm elections on Mammoth TV

October 29, 2010

Perhaps the most noteworthy aspect of this midterm election has been the swarm of negative Nevada TV ads from Tea Party candidate Sharron Angle and incumbent U.S. Democratic Senator Harry Reid.

To state the obvious, we do not live in Nevada. This is not our election. It seems absolutely obscene that we must be subjected to these repetitious, superfluous ads. They turn to gray, vision blurs and mute buttons are pushed.

Which is not to say that we wouldn’t equally be inundated by ads for California governor, among others.

Blame Game in the county schools

October 15, 2010

When the Eastern Sierra Unified School Board learned it was facing a $2.5 million deficit earlier this year, it should not have found that out at a figurative “two minutes to midnight.”

The economic writing has been on the wall for years, now.

But it did, and in three months, it cut dozens of teachers and classified staff, without the time to give the issue the in-depth kind of analysis such a radical move deserves.

Boola Boola - Mammoth Times Editorial

October 1, 2010

Mammoth plays at Bishop tonight in football. That’s about as big as it gets around here. We’re fired up.

The Mammoth/Bishop rivalry has been going on for more than 50 years. Bea Beyer tells us that when she moved from the Bishop schools to Mammoth, she and some students would sleep in the gym to protect their turf from the vandalism that had been going on for years.

There have been effigies hung from freeway overpasses, Clorox poured on a field, toilet papering, etc. It’s been your basic cross-town rivalry, up and down U.S. 395 and we think it’s actually pretty great.

Animal Control Officer would be beneficial

We were extremely disappointed to learn that we do not have an Animal Control Officer in Mammoth Lakes due to budget cuts. It was suggested that we call the Police Department if there is a problem as if this department does not have enough on their plates.
