I have to say I read your story and it doesn’t surprise me one bit. This self righteous attitude is what has created this ugly cloud over the sheriff’s department. Not just with Paranick but with multiple sheriffs that followed behind him. As I read it I was thinking, I… Read more »

The Sheriff’s Department has had big problems since Dan Paranick took office. Doug Northington ran in the last two elections and would have shaken it up. Ingrid has more experience and a better resume than Doug. Obenberger did one thing right and got rid of O’Hara who Rich Schol put… Read more »

Without a doubt, Paranick was the root of all evil on that department. It got so bad that the employees stood up and both the sworn and non-sworn employees did votes of no confidence in Paranick. They told Paranick they would go public with the vote if he ran again.… Read more »

I have an observation of Paranick to share. Long time residents may remember the first night of lights held at the main lodge in December, 1990. The mountain did a good job organizing the event, however the response was larger than the mountain might have expected when it came to… Read more »

I disagree that Mono County is almost crime free. There is a dark underbelly out there, most especially in the eastern portion of the county and in Mammoth. Scholl had his deputies making frequent stops in businesses to ask them how it was it was going and spent some time… Read more »

Well 4 women run and Zero win. Interesting.
I think it says a lot about the trust we have in women.
I saw what the papers said , but in the end is kinda shocked me.

I think that it is because the women who ran for the counsil were not the best Mammoth had to offer. Under your line of reasoning, Mammoth should not have voted 3 to 1 for a woman sheriff or given a landslide victory to Stacy over two men. Even Elizabeth… Read more »

Political observation – one of the big losers yesterday was John Eastman and his style of politics. Greg Eckert and most importantly Bill Sauser lost by significant margins in their supervisory races. Their messaging during the campaign was out of touch with reality and had no substance. The voters obviously… Read more »

Greg and Bill, mostly Greg, ran their campaigns with the Fox News, Carl Rove method. Over simplify complex issues, depend on voters who let their emotions govern their voting and use ad hominem (attack the person-don’t speak to the issue). Had Bill and Greg won the Board would have resembled… Read more »

“Over simplify complex issues” is absolutely accurate. How about the slogan “send Bridgeport the bill” used by Bill Sauser. That is ignorant at its best and arrogant at its worst. Ignorance and arrogance are the reasons why the Town is digging itself out of a hole.

Will sheriff Ingrid Braun appoint Deputy Madrid as under sheriff? We know he is more than capable and not one of the good old boys.

He isn’t the only deputy that has received such treatment. During the Paranick administration another deputy was railroaded and accused of something heinous, which the deputy was probably not capable of. I can’t say for sure, but an appeals court or board decision overturned his firing. Paranick did not accept… Read more »

Congratulations! Time for some clean up at the department. The cancer runs deep. Let’s hope that the folks will quietly resign and go off into retirement or other places and let Ingrid bring in some fresh blood. The sit in a chair in the lobby mindset has got to go.

It looks like the back of the Mono County Good Old Boy Club has been broken. It was a landslide!! Here are some of the Good Old Boys listed on the Obenberger website who endorsed him: Rick Scholl, Dan Paranick, Martin Strelneck, Vicki Bauer, Chris Carter, Hap Hazard, Tim Kendall,… Read more »

I’m surprised at the Chris Carter endorsement! Thought he was better than that!

Already, I can hear the sounds of the paper shredder as it warms up in Bridgeport!

Divine comeuppance is my feeling of this day!

Congratulations, to Sheriff Braun!

Interesting observation, “Inside Man”. Guess you’re not too much of an insider, or you would have more info on the so-called “illegal demotion”. Sometimes guilty parties get off on technicalities. But even O.J. Simpson couldn’t outrun from Karma!

Said it perfectly, Did anyone else compare Berger’s resume to Ingrid’s?
