Before you hit that “send” key on your computer this holiday season, please consider shopping locally.
Your dollars spent locally benefit the entire community, not just the individual business. Statistics show that for every dollar spent in a local business, 70 cents is re-circulated within that community.
Businesses in Mammoth need the support of tourists and residents alike.
I urge you to get behind this idea; shop locally this holiday season and encourage your friends to do the same.
I love the holidays, or at least many things about it. I love the festivities, the decorations, the music, and most of all the gathering of family and friends. However, as time has gone on I have found myself sporting a very “scroogish” attitude toward gift giving.
The Mammoth town government has wasted a lot of time over the years, approving projects that don’t get built, adopting town plans that still reside on dusty bookshelves, and so on.
We’re not alone in this. Actually, we figure that instead of counting sheep as a sleeping strategy, we could starting counting inconsequential reports and proposals in, say, Sacramento, for the rest of our lives, but then we’d never wake up again.
