Her play “Who’s Lying Down In Your Heart?” was recently given a grant to tour funded by the California Arts Council and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Last weekend for criminally good theatre

April 10, 2014

Are you ready for a little mystery?

Allison McDonnell Page masterfully directs Anthony Shaffer’s classic, Sleuth, with a modern flare. Although the play is based in 1970, quick dry wit and lots of suspenseful twists will keep the audience engaged in the Edison Theatre’s current production.

Sleuthis very different from the other shows Page has directed in the past. Instead of tense family drama like Proofor August: Osage County, she takes her turn at a comedy full of puzzles and lies.

Mono County has a new, rolling restaurant

February 13, 2014

BRIDGEPORT—A new restaurant opened its doors this past month in Mono County, and judging by the lines outside of Ohanas395, it’s already a hit.

The trick, if there is one, is in finding the doors.

That’s because Ohanas395 is a Hawaiian Style Food Trailer, owned and operated by Rena McCullough, a longtime June Lake resident.

“Opening a restaurant requires a lot of work,” she reasoned. “This is easier.”

It also is arguably better.

National Winter Trails Day & the Lakes Basin 15K

January 9, 2014

Depressed about the current lack of snow situation around here?

I have been able to stay motivated and upbeat because I am still skiing on great conditions up at Tamarack. It is going to take a good, old-fashioned three footer to open all the trails in the Lakes Basin, but never mind that for now; the 15 kilometers that are open have good coverage and are manicured every night as if by magic.

And, you can’t beat the warm, sunny days for being outdoors in winter.

In times of trouble, hamsters to the rescue

December 30, 2013

It was a bitter winter morning and his hands were freezing, but former Mammoth Lakes Police Department officer Paul Dostie was in his element.

One hand on a radio handset, another on a yellow legal pad, the sounds of a Vietnamese pop song came across his ham radio from thousands of miles away, tinny and scratchy in the background, he listened intently as orders from Mammoth Hospital came in over the wire.

“We are in lockdown,” came the message. “Only family members will be allowed in. All people must check in to the front desk.”
