Opportunity from chaos

Our View Opportunity from Chaos

April 13, 2012

It often takes dire situations for things to change.

At other times, dire situations fuel more of the kind of negativity that was partially responsible for the failures in the first place.

But within chaos lies opportunity.

Mammoth Lakes is slowly emerging out of a nightmare of a winter. We just want to put this winter behind us and focus on the future.

But in order for Mammoth Lakes to a.) emerge out of this lull and b.) to thrive and succeed in subsequent years, things need to change.
Attitude is on top of the list.

Yes.
Enough with the SILENCE.
Thank you to the Mammoth Times for “Our View”, published April 7. As a mother with 2 children, who were victimized by Lupe Almaguer, I am grateful that public knowledge is being increased.

Enough with the silence

April 10, 2012

No one wants to talk about it.

But the number of child sexual abuse cases reported in the Eastern Sierra has gone up this year, from one to three in Mono County and from six to nine in Inyo County.

That might not seem like much, but these are two very small counties and it’s an unusually sharp increase.

No one knows why officially, but there’s good speculation.

“Let’s face it, this has really been in the news lately,” said Lisa Reel, executive director for Wild Iris. “And the ones reporting in our area are young, under 16.”

Wild Iris a true blessing

March 9, 2012

I would like to thank Wild Iris for all that they have done for me and our community. The staff is amazing. The organization is amazing. They have truly been a blessing to my life. When I thought I had no one to turn to, they were always there for me, there to talk to, there to help with bills, there to help with food, there to help with clothing, there to help with friendship and love.

Just Life: Dreaming of escaping

March 6, 2012

I had dream after dream the other night of escaping and disappearing. Escape comes from the Latin word “excappare” which has something to do with hiding under a cloak. The definitions in the dictionary read, “To get away” and “to get free of or break away from something” and “to get and stay out of the way of something.”
