On the Lava Love bandwagon!
Dear Mule Days and Eastern Sierra Music Fans:
Did you happen to read the great Sheet article on the Lava Girls [“Whole Lava Love,” Sept. 17]? Did you know they are local twins making a sensation in the Country Music world?
And did you know that they WANT to come and perform in their home town at Mule Days? If you want that to happen, send in your comments and let the event organizers know that you will buy tickets and get others to buy tickets, and that they won’t be sorry that they booked the best act in the country, for “country.”
Let’s all get on the Lava Love “band” wagon! www.muledays.org.
Outrageous food prices
We all know food prices have increased tremendously in recent years. However, through our stay in Mammoth during the summer months we find the price of groceries at Vons supermarket are outlandish. Their pricing of food items seem to be way out of proportion as to what other supermarkets are charging. As one example, I went to Vons with my weekly grocery list and as I picked up two items I was taken back by them charging $4.99 for a package of sliced Swiss cheese and $4.99 for a box of Town House flip side crackers and, I haven’t even made a dent in the weekly shopping list.
Take into consideration that Big Bear has several convenient stores and also two supermarkets. Vons and Stater Bros. As you can see there is competition in Big Bear and perhaps the City Council in Mammoth should look into this and consider having another supermarket in Mammoth. There definitely needs to be some competition here. There are no choices in Mammoth, and the local people who reside here and visitors as well seem to be at the mercy of one supermarket, which is Vons. Also added to this comment is the gas prices which are a bit out of line as well. One wonders how the local people living here in Mammoth survive.
