Felici Trio, renowned clarinetist to perform this weekend

November 2, 2012

 

Chamber Music Unbound presents the second program of the season, “Mr. Clarinet,” featuring the resident Felici Trio and the principal clarinetist of the Israel Philharmonic, Ron Selka. 

Opening the concert is the entertaining “Suite for Violin, Clarinet, and Piano” by the French composer Darious Milhaud, followed by Beethoven’s very first published work, the effervescent “Piano Trio in E-flat.”

The finale is the richly romantic trio by German composer, Alexander Zemlinsky.

Digital 395 work begins near Mammoth this week

November 2, 2012

 

After three years of planning, Digital 395 crews were set to hit the area south of Mammoth this week, officials said.

“The plowing and boring south of Mammoth along 395 will be quite visible to the locals and there will be some heavy equipment for sure,” said Michael Ort, the private developer for the huge, 563-mile-long high-speed broadband digital cable installation project.

“They start this week along that section (near McGee Creek), moving south toward Bishop,” he said.

Being a veteran

November 2, 2012

 

Editor’s note: All Veterans and their friends and families are welcome at the Second annual Veterans Day Celebration at the Fire Station on Main Street, Monday, Nov. 12 at 9 a.m. with breakfast provided. A graduate of Mammoth High School—and a veteran—offers the following comments.

It’s a strange feeling to think of one’s self as a veteran at the age of 23.  

Mammoth Hospital recognizes medical-surgical nurses

November 2, 2012

 

The nurses are being celebrated for their dedication and skills the first week of November.

Medical-surgical nurses focus every day on caring compassionately for patients and families so the Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) has designated a week to shift that focus to the nurses themselves.

Mammoth Hospital supports the national celebration of medical-surgical nurses during Medical-Surgical Nurses Week, Nov. 1 to 7.

New medical imaging technology

November 2, 2012

 

Mammoth Hospital upgraded to a new medical imaging technology, which offers the latest advances in low radiation dose imaging.

In the past, radiology technologists had to use standard radiation doses to get high diagnostic image quality. Now, technologists can use cutting edge computer technology to create quality images from low radiation dose scans.

Doing what's best for our kids

November 2, 2012

 

Thank you for running your recent article “Four candidates aim for two Eastern Sierra Unified board seats.”

I appreciate the information and coverage you’ve provided for voters and communities of the Eastern Sierra Unified School District. We have some important decisions to make regarding the ESUSD Board of Trustees in this election.

Strong support for Ted Schade our local air pollution control officer

November 2, 2012

 

I, for one, refuse to stand by and not support Ted Schade, our Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control officer, and my friend, who is currently under attack by the City of Los Angeles.

Ted is tirelessly working to ensure public health in the Eastern Sierra and to enforce the laws of our country.

All of us who live here must oppose the strong interests who seek to once again divide and conquer the “Owens Valley folk.” Wolves hunt in that fashion.

Thank you Whiskey Creek

November 2, 2012

 

The Senior Class of Mammoth High School 2013 would like to extend our thanks to Whiskey Creek for hosting our fall senior dinners.

Our senior dinners pay for the end of the year senior trip where we get to enjoy the last bits of high school.

Urging a yes vote on Prop. 36

November 2, 2012

 

I urge a yes vote on Proposition 36 on the November ballot. It would change the “Three Strikes” law to permit consideration of the seriousness of the third strike.

As it now stands, a third felony mandates a sentence of 25 years to life regardless of the nature of the offense. It has been imposed for such things as theft of a pair of shoes, a golf club, and a package of bubble gum. Authorities need the flexibility to consider whether the third crime threatens the safety of the public.

Off the trail: Swing State

November 2, 2012

 

Plunging one sandaled foot into the knee-deep snow, the other sliding on icy slush and mud, tired from the last two hours of the same, I was starting to dream about warm summer beaches.

I had climbed up this remote canyon north of Bridgeport last Saturday with the devil at my heels, running from winter, chasing gold.

Greg Norby

November 2, 2012

 

We’re going to miss Greg Norby around here.

As the manager of the Mammoth Community Water District for four years, he ran the utility with aplomb, efficiency, and a sense of humor that hardly anyone ever got to see.

We were reminded of a Planning Commission meeting more than a year ago, when Norby gave the commissioners the bad news about the then-upcoming litigation with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.

It was a sobering presentation, at a time when Mammoth really did not seem ready for another load of lawsuits.

A tribute to my friend, Emile Allais (1912-2012)

November 2, 2012

 

A few months more than a hundred years ago, in the small French village of Megeve, a baker’s wife had a son named Emile.

In the last week, a lot of newspapers and some television news have chronicled the death of 100-year-old Emile Allais. They write about him winning two world championships in the downhill and slalom ski races in 1936 and 1937, as well as an Olympic gold medal in 1936. He would have won a third year in a row if he had not broken his ankle.

October 30, 2012

Local authorities are continuing a search for a missing hiker from Pacific Palisades who has been in the backcountry for more than 10 days.

Authorities launched a massive search effort last Wednesday after the hiker failed to return from a planned three-day hike in the Inyo National Forest.
