Ladies, Paul Ryan is your worst nightmare

August 24, 2012

Want a smaller government?  

Well this guy will put the government right inside your hoo-ha. Todd Akin, a Missouri congressman who, by the way is on the Science Committee, let it slip that many in the Republican Party believe that if a woman is “legitimately raped” her own bodily trauma will prevent conception from occurring.  

The conclusion which must be drawn from this statement is that raped women who did become pregnant (about 32,000 a year) must, somewhere deep down in their glands, have wanted to be raped.

Mammoth Margarita Festival not a solo venture

August 24, 2012

Thank you for the recent write up and post event coverage of the Mammoth Margarita Festival. 

As an event producer, I could not be happier with the recognition and press coverage of the first annual Mammoth Margarita Festival.

To see an idea created by three like-minded people take flight and soar is certainly up there in goal-attainment. 

However,  I feel especially compelled to reiterate that this was not by any stretch a “solo” venture.

The festival was and remains a truly equal partnership.

The Settlement

August 24, 2012

Mammoth finally settled its lawsuit with Mammoth Lakes Land Acquisition this week. Our immediate response was a sense of relief, and we weren’t alone.

All over town, our citizens talked it up, not knowing, really, what the terms of the settlement actually are. We don’t know either, but we know enough to sense that it is not a victory.

Rather, the settlement is wrapped in the clothing of defeat. Our battle flags in this matter now are furled, never again to be unfurled. The settlement and its complicated aftermath represent a sorry chapter in our little town’s short, little history.

A thank you from Mammoth Unified School District

August 24, 2012

The Mammoth Unified School District would like to give a warm thank you to the community for their support of the temporary closing of Minaret Street for the Bluesapalooza Event the first weekend in August.
We thank the Town Council for their continued foresight to support community safety with their action with the temporary closure of the road.

We thank Sean and Joyce Turner who allowed our high school students the opportunity to solicit voluntary donations for folks that wanted to park their cars on Minaret for the event.
