December 30th

Performing Arts in 2012 was diverse

December 30, 2012

 

In 2012, theater audiences were entertained by several diverse productions, from Sierra Classic Theatre’s emotionally complex “Proof” to Mammoth Lakes Repertory Theatre’s musical sensation “The Marvelous Wonderettes.”

The 2012 Festival Season was 'The Best'

December 30, 2012

 

Even before it started, town leaders pushed forward with a “Best Summer Ever” marketing campaign, with more hope than actual promise.

Fido & Me Breaking Trail

December 28, 2012

 

“I’m breaking trail!”

Fido was exuberant. Elated. Jubilant.

“Look at ME! I am almost beyond words!”

“That’ll be the day, Fido. There hasn’t been a moment when you were without words. Even in your sleep, you’re one big, red chatterbox.”

“Let’s go over here,” he said, plowing through the snow. “No, let’s go over here!”

Fido & Me A Christmas Mystery

December 21, 2012

 

“Reorge?!?” Fido called, obviously in a state of high consternation.

“Here I am!” I said, padding in from the hallway. “What the heck is going on?”

“There is something here that you should see, and I don’t think it is a good thing at all.”

I looked about, here and there, up and down, side to side.

“Fido, I don’t really see much out of the ordinary here, really.”

“Then what is that THING?” Fido wanted to know.

Fido & Me Yule Fido

December 14, 2012

 

“Hey who turned out the lights?” Fido demanded.

“Fido, the lights are on. Nobody has turned them off.”

“No, I mean outside. I get up in the morning and it’s dark on our morning walk. When we get home, it’s dark again.”

“It’s just the season, Fido.”

“I don’t like it.”

New Italian restaurant opens in Village

December 14, 2012

 

‘Campo Mammoth’ replaces Hyde

Mammoth Mountain Ski Area has done it again: opened up a new restaurant and upped the ante for a pleasant dining experience.

This time we welcome Campo Mammoth at the Village in the space formerly occupied by Hyde. It opens today (Friday), just in time for the holiday rush.

Reflections as the winter season packs a punch

December 14, 2012

 

It’s been a month since Opening Day and so far, the season has certainly packed a punch.

If you were in town the few weeks prior to Opening Day, you witnessed how the pace changes to a very excited, almost frantic behavior from all the local workers and business owners. 

There is nothing in a ski town quite like Opening Day, and this one had lots of expectations behind it (especially after last winter). Allow me to recap.

Main Lodge opener

What a Dickens!

December 14, 2012

As soon as the Thanksgiving leftovers have been put away, a parade of Christmastime entertainment steps into center stage.

Twirling the golden baton are the holiday-themed movies more heartwarming than hot cocoa, and Christmas carols endlessly streaming on the radio. Oh, and that’s just the beginning!

A majority of yuletide stories are based on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” The protagonist doesn’t believe in the Christmas spirit until he is confronted with his own cynicism, and has to inspire Christmas joy in others.

December 7th

Fido & Me- Antlers

December 7, 2012

 

“What the heck are we DOING?” Fido asked.

“Just sit still, you big red lug, this won’t take much more than a minute.”

“I’m not liking this.”

We were an hour away from our appointment with a photographer and some other dogs to make an image for a Christmas card. The idea was simple enough. The execution was going to be another thing altogether.
