Vote Yes on Prop. 34

October 26, 2012

 

According to the impartial analysis of Prop. 34 and potential costs to taxpayers prepared by Legislative Analyst Mac Taylor in the Official Voter information Guide, “since the death penalty law was enacted in California in 1978, around 900 individuals have received a death sentence.

“Of these, 14 have been executed, 83 have died prior to being executed and about 75 have had their sentences reduced by the courts. As of July 2012, California had 725 offenders in state prison who were sentenced to death.”

A response to Mr. Harris about Mammoth Police Department

October 26, 2012

 

I would like to respond to some of the comments made by Jean Harris in his letter that was published in the Oct. 19 issue of the Mammoth Times.

Mr. Harris believes that the Police Department is “bloated” and that crime will not increase if the department loses 46 percent of its officers.

A bend in the road

October 26, 2012

 

We haven’t had a lot of rah-rah moments around here lately, so two of them, within a week’s span, were particularly noteworthy.

The first one was a rah-rah for the snow. We couldn’t help feeling a little extra bounce in our feet on Monday morning, right through the whatever-it-was snow shower on Wednesday. It looks like winter is here to stay.
