Just Life: Keeping it even with the kids

March 2, 2012

I’m not sure when the if-he-has-that-then-I-get-one-too syndrome starts and I’m sure it’s different for every gang of siblings.

Regarding Mammoth Lakes Public Arts Commission

February 24, 2012

I am one of the Public Arts Commission (PAC) members. I have been on the PAC since its inception. I am resigning, not out of a sense of pique over the Town Council’s decision last Wednesday to give the gateway monument project $250,000 of PAC funds, but out of a recognition of the realities of the situation.

Thank you, anonymous person

February 20, 2012

On Jan. 7, a very nice person found my ATM card and driver license at the Sierra Center Mall and returned them to the police station. 

This person did not leave his or her name. I just want to thank him or her for being so kind!

It always seems a little bit weird to be thinking about the Fourth of July in February, but that’s the way it goes.

The winter of our discontent

February 10, 2012

It’s hard for us to remember a more dreary winter than this one.
 
One event morphs into another incident; one ugly phenomenon touches another.

You can discuss a game, but you can't change the score

February 3, 2012

By George Shirk
Times News Editor
 
We’re hoping for a brokered Republican National Convention in Tampa this coming August, and the signs for this happening are just about everywhere.
 
We take this stand not on principal, but on the pure basis of the fun of it all. Smoke-filled rooms. Political favors. Promises.

Run, Mammoth, Run

January 20, 2012

We see them everywhere, scampering about here and there, in the rain and snow, in hot temperatures and cold.
 
We see them as we drive to work in the morning, just after sun-up. They are running when we go home in the evening, just before sundown.
 
Mammoth’s distance runners achieved something remarkable at the U.S.

Wheels of Justice

January 13, 2012

The Murmur Mill in Mammoth is in full throat.
 
We don’t like it, but the reality is that the arrest of two of our citizens on child sex charges (P.1) is just too juicy for most of the murmurers to ignore.

January 6, 2012

The letter titled “For the Nordic Record,” submitted by Brian Knox and published in the Dec. 23, 2011, edition, contains factual inaccuracies that we would like to address here.

The Town of Mammoth Lakes—not MLTPA—has submitted a Measure R application for a multi-year funding commitment supporting a cooperative effort between the Town and the Inyo National Forest to establish and maintain the Mammoth Lakes Trail System (MLTS).
