And Rick Wood thinks he’s reeling!
I just read the April 23 edition of The Sheet, and I’m amazed that in the budget cover story, “The Price of Debt,” Councilman Rick Wood states, “I’m reeling. It seems incomprehensible.” Then, later in Kirkner’s Hot Creek litigation story, Wood states, “Never again can we find ourselves in this position where we don’t explore all options before we get to litigation. The community expects more.”
“I’m reeling” … “Never again …” Where do these guys come up with this stuff? Every council meeting, every council decision, every building permit (filled with giveaways) issued, every agreement reached falls under those headers.
The council as a whole has made two good decisions in a row for the last 15 years. So they bring in a “temporary” Town Manager and she tries to tell them how far out in left field (no, wait, scratch that) how far out in the parking lot they are, and she gets dumped. I think the only reason the council hasn’t been sued for stupidity is because they keep changing bodies, so they present a moving target!
They didn’t even have the balls to fire [former Town Manager Rob] Clark! He FUBAR’d the whole thing and then bailed. He’s not as stupid as I thought.
Is the Big One coming?
The article about earthquakes and Susan Hough, Earthquake Specialist with the U.S. Geological Survey in Pasadena (“Big Quakes Can Come From Small Faults,” May 7, page 19), caught my attention and I would like to respond to it.
As a UFO researcher for 61 years, my ET sources inform us that there will be a major quake to strike San Francisco “around the turn of the century,” as noted in 1978 by my contact, Billy Meier from Switzerland.
Is the time nigh? Consider it seriously.
Editor’s Note: The account to which Mr. Alfieri refers is from a story entitled, “The Great California Earthquake,” by J. Randolph Winters. UFO devotees may know Winters from his book, “The Pleiadian Mission – A Time of Awareness,” about Meier’s contacts with Light Beings from the Pleiades, in which Meier shares information that he received from the Pleiadians.
On March 18, 1978, Meier maintains he was brought on board a Pleiadian spacecraft by Base Commander Quetzal, who transported him into the future for a glimpse of California’s next big earthquake.
The Pleiadians were able to navigate into the future, but sadly unable to be more specific about the date, only saying that the time would be “a time around the turn of the century.” The future, Quetzal explained, is not a fixed thing.

Your full-page photo spread of the Jell-O wrestling contest that was held at Whiskey Creek was in very poor taste. The photos were unflattering and unsexy.
I can’t believe that a local establishment would hold such a sexist gimmick. The women are totally degrading themselves: all for what? A $10 gift certificate?
Defending champion … what an honor.
Poor girl. Little does she realize that a woman doesn’t have to roll around in mud, Jell-O, etc. for anyone! Even MEN! Women, have some self-respect and integrity. It’s not worth it!
Participate in Redistricting
Mono County will be facing redistricting of our supervisor districts between now and November. There could be significant changes in district boundaries and public input will be critical. Just to get your attention, splitting the community of June Lake has been suggested, in order to make the numbers work. This citizens Committee has been set up to gather opinion and this process will move fast. Please come to a meeting, I urge you.
