April 24 was International Guide Dog Day, a very important day.
The Guide Dogs For The Blind” (GDB) is a nonprofit organization that helps those who are visually impaired with the gift of independence, freedom, and the gift of helping them continue their journey in life with very special dogs—mostly yellow and black Labradors, golden retrievers, or a mix between a golden retriever and a Labrador.
The attempt to change the name of Minaret to McCoy or whatever is ridiculous!
What a waste of money. McCoy’s name is all over Mammoth Mountain Ski Area, and if that’s not enough name recognition, then let the family pay for the change. This is not the time to spend money for no benefit or gain. This is a dumb idea!
I would like to respond to your editorial “Nice is Hard” in the Mammoth Times March 22 issue.
Your editorial perfectly illustrates a problem some people have in our community. That is the notion that visitors to our resort who are frustrated, upset, or angry about the problems they face trying to have a fun vacation in Mammoth have somehow offended us and therefore forfeit their expectation of good service or even politeness from us.
That idea is simply not true, worse; it is destructive to our reputation and future business.
