Team Shinsetsu Ten sends its thanks

October 5, 2012

 

Team Shinsetsu Ten would like to thank everyone with a big bow who believed and still supports us.

On Oct. 13, TS10 is traveling to Murrieta, Calif., to represent Mammoth Lakes, fighting in Grappling X’s prestigious Pankration Tournament.  Pankration is the oldest form of mixed martial arts.

Mr. Gregory

October 5, 2012

 

Editor’s note: The following is a letter that was originally sent by part time June Lake resident Michael Bogash to Rusty Gregory via snail mail several weeks ago, via certified mail, according to Bogash. On Thursday, Bogash said he sent the letter to Gregory’s office via email. This time, Bogash received an email stating that Gregory had not received the original letter and that he would contact Bogash “within the next few days.”

Mr. Gregory,

Thank you for taking the time to read this letter.

To those in District 4

We all know that Mammoth is facing a steep uphill climb in order to overcome the economic recession of the last few years and the depressed property values that resulted.

And now we need to deal with a staggering debt.

Bullying awareness movie a success

October 5, 2012

 

I wanted to thank Wendilyn Grasseschi and the Mammoth Times for the article on my bullying awareness movie in last week’s issue.

I would like to make a clarification on what Peace Project is or was: it was only one small but important facet of the Caring and Courageous Kids program.

What I noticed over time was that many of the relational bullying problems occurred during recess time.

It was my way of “walking the talk” and offering pro-social activities for students.

Long overdue thank you!

This letter of thanks goes out to Paul and Kathleen Rudder.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Rudder,

Thank you so much for honoring my daughter Danielle (Dani) Stanton with the JRR Memorial Scholarship.

Dani was flattered and surprised to be interviewed for a scholarship, then very proud and happy to have been awarded this scholarship.

Dani is attending Cerro Coso now, so this scholarship will help with her expenses.

History repeats itself

October 5, 2012

 

After the “Great Debacle,” the “Settlement That Ate Mammoth,” whatever you want to call it, both George Shirk, news editor of the Mammoth Times and Jack Lunch, editor of the Sheet News, wrote articles about that settlement.

George, a thoughtful individual and nice guy, opined that now the litigation was settled, we should put it behind us, and move on. An end to the finger pointing is a good thing, he said, the blame game and negative thinking. It’s counterproductive and won’t get us anywhere.

Rediscovering Mammoth Lakes

September 28, 2012

Sadly, before my recent trip, I hadn’t visited the Mammoth Lakes area for a long time, having been a regular winter visitor when I lived in Southern California. Back then I saw the mountain, the condo, the restaurants and the clubs. It had never occurred to me that this was also a wonderful summer recreation area. Boy, was I surprised.

If you stand on top of Mammoth Mountain and are not obsessed with skiing down in one piece, you can take the time to look around, and what you see is the 10-by-20 mile Long Valley Caldera.

Ladies, Paul Ryan is your worst nightmare

August 24, 2012

Want a smaller government?  

Well this guy will put the government right inside your hoo-ha. Todd Akin, a Missouri congressman who, by the way is on the Science Committee, let it slip that many in the Republican Party believe that if a woman is “legitimately raped” her own bodily trauma will prevent conception from occurring.  

The conclusion which must be drawn from this statement is that raped women who did become pregnant (about 32,000 a year) must, somewhere deep down in their glands, have wanted to be raped.
