The March 27 Mammoth Times is on the racks


The newest edition of the Mammoth Times is on the racks and in the mail, and this week we usher in April with a wide range of news and features.

First, Mono County tourism leaders are surprised and giddy over last autumn’s performance. In spite of the Rim Fire at Yosemite National Park, which closed the Tioga Pass for a time, and the two-week government shutdown in October, tourism in Mono County showed the best figures in seven years.

Also on P.1., author Wendilyn Grasseschi profiles Cindy Kamler of the Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care, while George Shirk reports on Deena Kastor’s remarkably victory in the Dallas Half Marathon.

There is a steady flow of political news these days, with the campaigns beginning to get traction.

Winter is still with us, though, and that’s why a group of graduate students from the University of California Santa Barbara are in town, studying under the wand of a world-renowned snow hydrologist.

All that, plus our usual features such extensive classified ads, the "Our View" editorial, and the Police Blotter, is on news racks now for 50 cents a copy.

An E-Edition version, in PDF format, is available for the same single-issue paper price of 50 cents, along with a subscription offer that includes discount options.

Have a great week, everybody, and we'll touch base again on April 3 with a new edition of the Mammoth Times.


Thanks for reading, and have a great week.
