Our View: Skip Harvey

July 20, 2012

For the 52 years before he entered public life, people probably knew Skip Harvey as “that guy with the smile on his face.”

“Here comes that guy with the smile on his face again,” people would say, and we’d notice they walked with a little more bounce to their steps just for having him pass by.

Matthew Lehman got to know Skip on the night that guy with a smile on his face rode his motorcycle cross-country to a party. “What a cool guy,” Lehman says he remembered thinking.

Many thanks

July 20, 2012

For three years the June Lake Loop Women’s Club has organized prizes for the kids winners at the June
Lake Triathlon. We would like to thank the generous people and businesses of June Lake for donating these prizes.

At the onset of this most difficult time for June Lake, these donors deserve a special recognition for stepping up and showing what June Lake is made of. Thank you for making this “Toughest Race in the Most Beautiful Place” a reality:

We'll miss you, Skip

The Town of Mammoth Lakes lost a true and genuine public servant today.

Skip Harvey was candid, concerned and cared deeply for our Village in the trees.

Stress kills but Skip stayed the course and served our town as long as humanly possible. We miss you, Skip.

The air service issues

July 20, 2012

Air service subsidies to major airlines may or may not be a reasonable and rational approach to air service. It remains, in my mind, an open book for discussion.

An open apology

July 20, 2012

On July 11, there was a special meeting held in Suite Z to discuss options for the funding of air subsidy to Alaska Airlines. I stood up and openly challenged one of Mammoth’s Supervisors, Mr. Byng Hunt, after his comments on the podium to our Town Council and the people of Mammoth.

I want to say that I am sorry to everyone in Mammoth and Mono County for not saying more!
I am continually amazed by our elected officials in Bridgeport; did Mr. Hunt not learn from other supervisors that have recently been replaced? Does Mr. Hunt not realize that the economic engine begins in Mammoth?

Judgement by Gregory

July 20, 2012

The Town should ask Rusty Gregory to pay the judgment

These days, our national institutions are out of our control. We should at least be at peace with the idea that we control our local government. But when the record available to us shows our local government is no longer under our control, we are compelled to raise questions and address those individuals who have brought us to financial crisis. So, after a review of public records available to us, I would like to know “who is in charge at city hall” and has as anyone asked Gregory and/or Long to pay the judgment?
