Twenty-four and still counting: jazz with altitude

July 27, 2012

When it comes to putting on an event as large as the 24th Mammoth Lakes Jazz Jubilee, it takes many, many hours of preparation. What most people see and hear is the finished result of over a whole year’s worth of work by a small army of very dedicated volunteers.

The tents that go up and come down very quickly, the variety of music played that fills the air all hours of the day and night during the event, the amount of increased foot traffic in several locations around town, and the many smiling faces were all part of this July event.

Skip's Market

July 27, 2012

At the wonderful memorial service for Skip Harvey this past Saturday, the attendees were given a four page memorial statement with some great photos and reminiscences about the high points of Skip’s life. One of the things mentioned was how Skip was a driving force behind creating the Main Street Farmer’s Market.

Sierra Transition Education Program

July 27, 2012

The High School Senior Breakfast and the awarding of thousands of dollars in scholarships has become a tradition that students, parents and the community look forward to every year. This year was no exception.

Disabled Sports of the Eastern Sierra recognized and awarded five graduating seniors on June 15th at Mammoth High School. As an afterthought as she was leaving the podium, Kathy Copeland gave a shout out to the gracious community members of Mammoth Lakes in attendance, asking for some help.

Many thanks

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?

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?

Plenty of thanks to go around

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the following businesses for their generosity and kindness in supporting the Forest Service Fire Safety Fun Festival at Fire Station 2 on July 4.

Thank you Vons for your cookies and icing donations. The kids enjoyed decorating them with a fire safety theme. Thank you McDonalds for providing punch to wash down those cookies!

Food & Wine Experience a success!

July 13, 2012

The Mammoth Food & Wine Experience, that just concluded this past weekend, could not be accomplished without the assistance of a huge roster of volunteers. Most were local, some were visitors, some were students, some second-home owners and their families, but they all came together to make the event a success.
