We spoke to Greg Jennison Wednesday to get an update on longtime business partner John Neubauer.
Neubauer was involved in a serious motorcycle accident on Sunday afternoon. According to Jennison, he failed to navigate a turn on the way back to Big Pine from a trip out the road that goes to Scotty’s Castle off Hwy. 168.
Fortunately, Joe Roberts was riding right behind him.
While Roberts went to get help, however, Neubauer was stuck in a ditch for about an hour.
He was ultimately life-flighted to Reno by Gary Thompson, where he still remains in the ICU.
Thus far, doctors have fixed a hand filleted in the accident, and have put two pins and eight screws in his spine.
The broken pelvis is supposed to heal on its own.
Neubauer and Mark Wilbur had just completed the Mammoth Rock ‘n Bowl project.
Sheet: Well, it looks like it might be the Greg Jennison show for the next little bit.
Jennison: Lots of times, it’s been the John Neubauer show … we’ve been partners for 35 years. That’s what partners do.
Summer is coming and grilling your meat with beer is healthier than not, according to a recent article published in the Economist. Grilled meat increases the risk of colon cancer to the eater by creating molecules known as ‘free radicals’ that change a person’s DNA. The antioxidants in beer, produced by the roasting of the barley, counteract the formation of these ‘free radicals,’ therefore decreasing the chance of developing cancer. Doctor Isabel Ferreira and her team at the University of Proto in Portugal created two beer marinades, one from a pilsner the other from an unspecified black beer, to test their theory. Both marinades decreased the formation of ‘free radicals’ in the meat.
So if you’re going to grill, save yourself and use beer.
Finally, former Mammoth resident Bruce Arnold recently passed.
Arnold was a longtime realtor in Mammoth before retiring to Reno.
As friend Chuck Tomajko said, “Bruce’s best characteristic was that his word meant everything. It was more than you could put on a piece of paper. And he always followed through.”
In retirement, Bruce was very active in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters program in Reno and became a poster boy for that organization, often appearing in local television spots.
While never married, Arnold was a serial monogamist according to Tomajko.
Arnold was 64.
