Wheels of Justice

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.

Tenney 'Goes for Broke' on funding for Gateway Project

January 13, 2012

Call it want you want: Shooting the Moon, Going for Broke, whatever.

For Elizabeth Tenney, it’s all of that, with an extra measure of audacity thrown in.

Tenney, whose volunteer projects in Mammoth have made her a key behind-the-scenes player, on Tuesday floored the town’s Recreation Commission with a request for $250,000 in Measure R (taxpayer) funding for her Mammoth Gateway Community Project, up from a previous request of $25,000.

“I’m highly skeptical that we could get that much,” she said to the commissioners, who answered her with their own skepticism.

Warm weather allows Airport Road to get facelift

January 6, 2012

It might just be the first time in history that it’s been possible to patch asphalt cracks in the middle of January.

Normally a job for the short summer months, roadwork in Mono County comes to a screeching halt every winter.

Except this one
.
Not only is there no snow, it’s been in the 50s and 60s during the day—warm enough to set finicky tar asphalt patches.

The funky and cracked road to the Mammoth Yosemite Airport will be getting a facelift in the next week or so, despite a bit of tug-o-war between the county supervisors Tuesday.

Mammoth Lakes Lakers head to U.S. Pond Hockey Championship

January 6, 2012

The Mammoth Lakes Lakers, our local pond hockey team, are headed to Minneapolis to compete for the Golden Shovel in the sixth annual U.S. Pond Hockey Championship.

You might not have heard about the Mammoth Lakes Lakers, but they’ve been around as long as … well … as long as Mammoth locals have been skating and playing hockey.

This year, the Mammoth Lakes Lakers are Jeff Posey, Peter Chapman, Mike Rousseau, Ryan Widen, Jim Lynch and Joe Hannigan.

Occupancy dives again

January 6, 2012

Merchants, hoteliers, restaurants and the Mammoth Mountain Ski Area all scrambled this week in the face of a steep dive in visitor occupancy.

In its weekly occupancy projection, Mammoth Tourism said the town is expected to fill to just 38 percent this weekend and 21 percent for the midweek.

Last year at this time, with an overabundance of snow and Mammoth the talk of the ski world, the town filled to 65 percent on the weekend and 35 percent in the midweek.

Many hotels and condo complexes are offering deep discounts, particularly at midweek.

Ice Rink reaping the rewards

January 6, 2012

As it turns out, the political wrangling and the financing debates have worked themselves out, adding to a record season at the newly reopened ice rink.

December attendance at the rink doubled over December 2009—the last season the rink was open.
Going into the New Year, the rink already is 85 percent of the total attendance than it had in 2009-10.

“What a time to reopen the Ice Rink,” said Stuart Brown, the Town’s recreation director.

“Attendance has been through the roof and the quality of the experience on the ice for our guests has surpassed our expectations,” he said.

Inaccuracies in previous letter

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).
