County will soon have new bilingual mental health worker, new psychiatric nurse

July 20, 2012

Mono County Mental Health will be hiring a bilingual case manager and a full-time psychiatric nurse in a move that mental health officials said will increase the amount of mental health care the county can provide—and save as much as $20,000 a year, beginning next year.

Many thanks

July 20, 2012

For three years the June Lake Loop Women’s Club has organized prizes for the kids winners at the June
Lake Triathlon. We would like to thank the generous people and businesses of June Lake for donating these prizes.

At the onset of this most difficult time for June Lake, these donors deserve a special recognition for stepping up and showing what June Lake is made of. Thank you for making this “Toughest Race in the Most Beautiful Place” a reality:

We'll miss you, Skip

July 20, 2012

The Town of Mammoth Lakes lost a true and genuine public servant today.

Skip Harvey was candid, concerned and cared deeply for our Village in the trees.

Stress kills but Skip stayed the course and served our town as long as humanly possible. We miss you, Skip.

The air service issues

July 20, 2012

Air service subsidies to major airlines may or may not be a reasonable and rational approach to air service. It remains, in my mind, an open book for discussion.

An open apology

July 20, 2012

On July 11, there was a special meeting held in Suite Z to discuss options for the funding of air subsidy to Alaska Airlines. I stood up and openly challenged one of Mammoth’s Supervisors, Mr. Byng Hunt, after his comments on the podium to our Town Council and the people of Mammoth.

I want to say that I am sorry to everyone in Mammoth and Mono County for not saying more!
I am continually amazed by our elected officials in Bridgeport; did Mr. Hunt not learn from other supervisors that have recently been replaced? Does Mr. Hunt not realize that the economic engine begins in Mammoth?

Boccia calls for Olympic Training Site status

July 20, 2012

Mammoth schools superintendent Rich Boccia said this week he is pushing to make the town a designated training site for U.S. Olympic athletes.

Boccia, who has Olympic organizing experience in Colorado Springs and the 1984 Olympics in Los Angeles, made his pitch to the town’s Recreation Commission on Tuesday.

“It would appear to me, based on the conversations here in town and given the athletes we have, we should find, somehow, to build an action plan to apply to the Olympic Committee to become an Olympic training site,” Boccia said.

Sierra Classic Theatre presents Shakespeare's "The Tempest"

July 20, 2012

The players of the Sierra Classic Theatre will open s six-day run of William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest,” beginning tonight at Sam’s Woodsite in Mammoth.

It is an audacious, if not tempestuous undertaking, directed by Lesley Bruns and performed under the trees at the venue.

The players ask for a $10 donation for those wishing to attend.

Although the theatre company will offer some chairs, the players ask members of the audience to bring their own chairs if they like, and a picnic.

Forest Service hold as much power as MMSA when it comes to June Mountain

July 20, 2012

The final say regarding June Mountain Ski Area’s destiny—this coming winter and from here on—lies as much with Inyo National Forest supervisor Ed Armenta as it does with MMSA CEO Rusty Gregory.

Although Gregory was the focus of much of the public’s ire at last week’s meeting between the June Lake community and Gregory, Armenta was the other real power in the room. He had just returned from his first meeting with Gregory earlier that day, July 10. Armenta said it was very clear to him how critical to the community of June Lake and to Mono County it is to keep June Mountain open.

Judgement by Gregory

July 20, 2012

The Town should ask Rusty Gregory to pay the judgment

These days, our national institutions are out of our control. We should at least be at peace with the idea that we control our local government. But when the record available to us shows our local government is no longer under our control, we are compelled to raise questions and address those individuals who have brought us to financial crisis. So, after a review of public records available to us, I would like to know “who is in charge at city hall” and has as anyone asked Gregory and/or Long to pay the judgment?
