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.
The fundraiser gala “500 and Rising” was a terrific success, sharing with over 150 guests the remarkable story of the wild sheep in our backyard.
On behalf of the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Foundation I would like to thank the friends from near and far who came to show their enthusiasm for Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep, as well as the many people who worked hard to bring about this event.
Kudos to Michael Raimondo and Matt Lehman for being the only responsible council members who voted to impose the penalties and interest in regards to a home being illegally rented out nightly.
As a local, I feel ripped off.
For the other council members who voted to allow the owners Kevin and Carolynn Cozen to not have to pay on the penalties and interest, when they fully knew and basically admitted they were renting their home illegally, should resign.
