No, No & No

September 18, 2014

Nobody likes Dr. No.

Who's in Charge?

September 4, 2014

For the past few years, Mammoth’s Town Council has slowly but surely been outsourcing some of its direct supervision over town functions to a variety of non-governmental organizations (NGOs).

Winter Woe

August 28, 2014

We keep hearing the same thing, over and over again. 

“I sure hope it snows.” “We need it to snow, or I’m going to have to sell the business.” “The market isn’t going to come back until it snows.”

The Postpile

August 21, 2014

We keep hearing the same thing, over and over again. 

“I sure hope it snows.” “We need it to snow, or I’m going to have to sell the business.” “The market isn’t going to come back until it snows.”

Depression

August 14, 2014

Robin Williams’ death disturbed the world on Monday, Aug. 11.

Media outlets around the state, nation and world were reporting on the news and our Facebook feed blew up with people expressing their emotions.

Our New Look

August 7, 2014

As is quite obvious by now, the Mammoth Times has a new suit of clothes.

It’s going to take a little bit of time to get comfortable with our new look, both from our end and yours. But we are confident that we’ll adjust quickly, and that our readers will, too.

Turning 30

July 31, 2014

There is a world of difference between 29 years old and 30.

We bring this up because on Aug. 15, The Town of Mammoth Lakes will vault from its impetuous 20s over the magic timeline to 30.

Power Play

July 24, 2014

We’d like to congratulate Mono County Supervisor Fred Stump and the Wilderness Society’s Sally Miller for keeping us up to date on what could be another head-on collision between the federal government and Mono County.

Unleashed humans

July 17, 2014

One of the best things about Mammoth is that this town (and its people) love dogs. We often refer to Mammoth and the Eastern Sierra as the biggest dog park since dogs are welcomed in town and on our National Forest Service land (unlike national parks like Yosemite).

It seems as if everyone has a dog in Mammoth, as if it is a prerequisite to reside here.

Visitors also love Mammoth because they can bring their four footed friends with them. We have dog friendly hotels and businesses with doggie treats at check out counters.

Political Science

July 10, 2014

We love a good contradiction in terms, particularly of the false dichotomy stripe.

The term “Political Science” is a real knee-slapper, given our relationships to both politics and science around here.

The politics speaks for itself. Nothing short of the Fourth of July Fireworks could match Mammoth and the Eastside this past political season.

That is not a complaint, by the way.

And the science speaks for itself as well.

Our Backward Fourth

July 3, 2014

The Fourth of July is upon us.

Dan Watson

June 26, 2014

Five years ago, the Mammoth Lakes Police Department and its chief, Randy Schienle, were taking heavy fire.

After two years of controversy, including investigations into four separate incidents and allegations, the chief read an eight-page letter to the Town Council in his own defense, and then resigned shortly thereafter.

May 29, 2014

The editorial staff at the Mammoth Times has gone to great lengths to aggressively cover the campaigns leading up to the election on June 3.

A tip of our hat

May 22, 2014

It’s been a long, exhausting, and—at times—stressful campaign season (so far) for those running, working behind the scenes, and covering it all.

 

A tip of our hat

May 22, 2014

It’s been a long, exhausting, and—at times—stressful campaign season (so far) for those running, working behind the scenes, and covering it all.

We have less than two weeks left until Election Day, and this causes us to reflect on the past several months.

Amid our reflection, we couldn’t help but refer to the various businesses and community members who have engaged forcefully in the campaigns—some before the season even started.
