    Is Olancha considered part of the LP fire District?

    • Squatch November 7, 2014 at 5:31 pm #

      No, Olancha-Cartago has their own volunteers.

    Well Mark,

    I guess I better do a lot less Presidential work (not that I do much anyway) and play more golf if I want to improve my score.

    • tbone November 6, 2014 at 6:36 pm #

      Actually, GW Bush spent far more time on vacation than President Obama, as in 4 times as much. But I’m sure you already knew that, and you’re just doing your job as a GOP fanboy by contributing to the misinformation campaign.

      • Ken Warner November 6, 2014 at 8:45 pm #

        tbone: You are right and it is easy to find the data that corroborates what you say, yet the Obama haters just don’t bother to look because it’s too easy to make up their own facts.

          True Ken, truth be told, a lot of them are just plain pissed off they got beat by a black man. Can I say that?

          • Ken Warner November 8, 2014 at 10:02 am #

            Trouble: I say it all the time because it’s true. All you have to do is take a good look at McConnell and Boehner.

            Truth be told, Harry Reid is a dictator and a traitor to the constitution. There are about 350 bills sitting on his desk that have been passed by the house that Reid refuses to let the senate vote on.

            That is a dictatorship, not represenative government.

          • Wayne Deja November 8, 2014 at 6:07 pm #

            With “Trouble’s” comment above….agree 100%….And the thing is,with the Republicans gaining in this mid-term,no big deal or worry for the Democrats here.All it will do is give the GOP more time to say and do stupid things…AGAIN…..and make it easier for the Dems come November 2016…The Republicans WILL shoot themselves in the foot,probably numerous times,between now and the big 2016 election…..just a matter of how they do it this time around.

          • Ken Warner November 8, 2014 at 9:50 pm #

            Reality Check: You have presented an over simplification and have jumped to a conclusion that may not be true.


            Jenkins said that in the “do-nothing Senate,” there are 352 House bills “sitting on Harry Reid’s desk awaiting action,” including 55 introduced by Democrats.

            In some cases, committee chairs — not Reid — may be blocking or moving slowly on these bills. In other cases, senators are working on their own alternative bills on the same topic. Meanwhile, the claim oversells the degree of bipartisanship in the House; a majority of the Democratic-sponsored bills she cites are relatively minor pieces of legislation.

            Ultimately, Jenkins places all the blame on the Democrats and the Senate, but experts agree that it takes two to tango. Both parties and chambers have played a role in creating the current legislative dysfunction. On balance, we rate the claim Half True.

        Tbone, why so bent!!!! I am not so hurt about out midterm losses? Why are you?

      • Tinner November 7, 2014 at 1:47 pm #

        Sore loser.

      • Tony Cumia November 8, 2014 at 5:04 am #

        Bush spent his time at HIS ranch, not at wealthy donor’s mansions[1%rs].There is a difference.

        • Charles O. Jones November 8, 2014 at 10:15 am #

          Let’s not forget those corporate donors. Corporate Personhood. Both parties are guilty of it, but it was the right that so vehemently supported this misguided concept.

          • Reality Check November 9, 2014 at 9:48 am #

            Right on Charles. George Soros, Tom Hanks and the rest of the Hollywood elite are trying to buy elections.

            This year they were unable to beat the oldest civil rights group in America, the NRA, with 5 million members.

          • Charles O. Jones November 9, 2014 at 1:55 pm #

            @Reality Check,
            Hmmmm…. lets see, from what I can find, Hanks donated roughly $30,000 to the Democratic Party, while the NRA spent roughly 3.5 million lobbying for the firearm industry. (I say the firearm industry because that’s who they truly represent, not civil rights)

            Yet you accuse Hanks of trying to buy elections? Funny math. And you call yourself Reality Check?

            Care to take it a step further and compare Soros to the Koch brothers? An equally lop-sided comparison.

          • Ken Warner November 9, 2014 at 6:15 pm #


            The Koch brothers reportedly made another financial commitment for the 2014 elections Monday, announcing a new super PAC called Freedom Partners Action Fund, according to Politico. The group will invest $15 million in the midterms, bringing the Kochs’ total investment to a reported $290 million.

            That’s estimated; the Kochs could spend as little as, say, $250 million. Which is probably more than you have to spend on elections. And still a ton of money.

          • Reality Check November 10, 2014 at 9:31 am #

            Charles, my bad, Steven Spielberg not Tom Hanks.


            The NRA has 5 million members who value their 2nd amendment rights. It is very amateurish of you to try and spin that into the firearms industry. Game over but you can play again if you want.

          • Charles O. Jones November 10, 2014 at 12:29 pm #

            @ RC,

            According to your link, Spielberg donated $2,600. Hardly helps make your point.

            That aside, You seem impressed by the 5 million NRA members. Well it is estimated that there are well over one hundred million gun owners in the US. Obviously the vast majority of those gun owners (like myself) choose not to support the NRA and their campaign of scare tactics. But I’m sure the NRA appreciates your continued support of their lobbying efforts for the firearm industry.

            Ted Nugent for President.

            Here you go Charles, sorry to confuse you with the acual facts:


          • Charles O. Jones November 11, 2014 at 12:47 am #

            Yes, facts are telling, aren’t they?

            Steven Spielberg – $250,000
            Charles Koch – $2,000,000
            David Koch – $2,000,000

      With two more years and being a lame duck I’d play a lot more golf if I was you Mr. President, then I’d challenge Mr. Jordan to back up his claim.

      And since according to Mr. Jordan it takes all day for you to play a round of golf, I’m curious if that’s considered a vacation day?

  3. President Obama November 5, 2014 at 11:20 pm #

    Don’t worry about us being slaughtered in the mid term elections Wayne. I still have the pen and my golf game.

    • Mark November 6, 2014 at 9:27 am #

      Michael Jordan told us everything we need to know about your golf game.

      Here are the REAL wins (on a national level) from the 2014 mid term election….

      Why not support the good guys?….

      Eastside Bum.. nevermind.. is going to change the game!

    • Charles O. Jones November 6, 2014 at 3:20 pm #

      @President Obama,
      Now the R’s in Washington will have an opportunity to change gears from temper tantrums to actual governing. Lets see if they can put their words into action for once. Based on their history, I’m not too optimistic.

  4. Wayne Deja November 5, 2014 at 6:50 pm #

    Tinner…I’m STILL a bit troubled about how many people voted for Mitt Romney in 2012….and he didn’t even win the election !!

    • Eastside Bum November 5, 2014 at 11:34 pm #

      Wayne, I’m disappointed you feel that way about Mitt Romney. The country would have been in a better place if things turned out differently.

      It’s good to see that Paradise is getting a boost in Fire Protection. And congratulations to Karen Schwartz (so far).

      • Trouble November 6, 2014 at 6:13 pm #

        Eastside – I actually believed Romney when he said he never smoked and only had one beer. That scares the hell out of me!

  5. Philip Anaya November 5, 2014 at 6:26 pm #

    Measure D at 70.39% approval means that the Lone Pine Folks have assessed themselves additional dollars to aid needed emergency services not only for themselves but for all who come through their town of Lone Pine. This support of services needed is the sweetest example in this entire national election of what we need to be, all about, sharing and taking care of our neighbors, visitors and our home . I am on the hook for a pledged annual contribution to Measure D and I am honored to share a bit in the support of these vital services. The Community of the folks in the Eastern Sierra is equal to our natural wonders . There are tall mountains of grandeur and the folks we share this place with are equal to those wonders. Maybe the entire world needs a Sierra Crest .

  6. Tinner November 5, 2014 at 3:28 pm #

    I am a bit troubled on how many people voted for Gavin Newsome Lt. Gov.

  7. Trouble November 5, 2014 at 7:55 am #

    Im glad the fire departments got what they were asking for.
