Regarding proposal to reduce police expenses in Mammoth

October 19, 2012

 

Please consider the probable effect on tourism when the first article appears in the L.A. Times reporting a mugging or gang shooting in Mammoth Lakes.

It will immediately undo years of promotional advertising.  

Who wants to take the kids to a “Family Resort” with drug deals going down in the Vons parking lot?

If the town skimps on public safety, all the money spent on promotion, recreation, airline subsidies, transit, and public art won’t save us.

The judgment is the Town of Mammoth’s fault, period

October 19, 2012

 

As a concerned individual, who has actually read the court opinion, I found it very difficult to read the Oct 5 issue of the Mammoth Times. 

Rather than accept the facts revealed in the court opinion, showing corruption and mismanagement of the Town of Mammoth Lakes, the issue was replete with finger pointing and artificial conclusion.

One councilmember, seriously suffering from self denial, even attempted to blame the judgment on North Mono County.

Prop. 30 is an important issue

October 19, 2012

 

Proposition 30 on the November ballot is a very important issue regarding school funding.

As your Inyo and Mono County Superintendents of Schools, we believe it is our obligation to inform the electorate of matters that directly affect our local schools.

Furthermore, we know that you are looking for factual, nonbiased data to make an informed decision at the ballot box.

The Snow Dance

October 19, 2012

 

Not long ago, we got a phone call from a radio station in Los Angeles, asking if the town’s fiscal situation will help, hamper, or change the skier experience in Mammoth this season.

We said no—nothing will change as long as people do a proper snow dance right about now.

One of them goes off tomorrow evening at 6:30 p.m. at The Village. The people at the Mammoth Mountain Community Foundation are throwing a bonfire party and ski burn as a sacrifice to Ullr. If you have to ask who the heck Ullr is, you’re in the wrong town.
