Those who know me would tell you that I harbor no love for government, town or otherwise. When an entity such as the Town of Mammoth Lakes decides to circumvent the democratic process by passing measures of taxation that have otherwise failed to garner approval from voters in the past, I can only assume they missed a valuable lesson from history that revolved around the simple idea of no taxation without representation.
A BIG “thank you” goes out to all who donated blood at the bi-annual United Blood Services Blood Drive held on May 13, 14, and 15.
The Mammoth Lakes Hospital Auxiliary coordinated the drive, which was held at the Mammoth Fire Department.
Did you know that one unit of blood can help three people and that one out of seven people that go to the emergency room will have to have a blood transfusion? The United States needs approximately 42,000 units of blood A DAY. That’s a whole lot of blood!
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!
