Dan Holler

Town managers are a little bit like baseball managers.

When they’re good, everybody heaps praise all over them, saying there is no way in the world the team would have won without them.

More times than not, though, the awesomely great baseball manager becomes a bum in two or three years. The manager, universally despised at that point, then rotates to a different team and the process repeats itself

So it is with town managers, who on average last just over seven years before moving on to the next town.

Holler good for Mammoth

Congratulations to Mammoth for stepping up and hiring a true professional manager. Now, it is time to work together, adopt your policies and step aside and allow professional management to achieve the goals the Council sets. 

If the Council can resist the temptations to micro manage and stick with establishing policies of excellent governance, Mammoth will be back on top in no time.

Occupy Yosemite

October 3, 2013

I am outraged at what the federal government is doing. Closing our National Parks is absurd and is hurting all of us here in the Eastern Sierra.

Our businesses are hurting. The Eastern Sierra is a tourist based economy, and by the feds closing the parks, the livlihood of our friends, neighbors and families are in jeopardy.

We need the funds that come into our communities through these parks:

Yosemite National Park, Devils’ Postpile National Monument, Death Valley National Monument, Sequoia National Park, Kings Canyon National Park.
