    Good grief, half way through the comments I had to go back and remember what the topic of the article was about. Not one word on the Business Improvement District.

    The deer fence would help with the illegal alien problem that is so much hotly debated. And I know some will call me racist … for that comment, but it was only meant as sarcasm aimed at a stupid idea.

    You know some times ya just see things as stupid … Because they are .. it seems there is not any rational thought to things as such.

    The emotions sure run things. And that can be bad, it could be good in some cases, but usually not good, emotions don’t seem to be conducive to clear thought. hmmm

    Yeah Mark .. just be aware, and drive slow, no need to slow down at that time just for the deer and other animals .. because that is what we should be doing, especially at night.

      Big Al –
      Kindly keep your nasty racist “jokes” to yourself. If we want to hear that sort of racist BS, we’ll tune in to your Limbaugh show.

        The deer fence would help with the illegal alien problem if it was installed 500 miles to the South.

        Nothing racist about illegal aliens, just ask anyone that immigrated here legally. It’s not a racist issue it’s a legal issue.

        Speed kills humans and wildlife.

      “Right-wing propagandists like Limbaugh and Coulter are essentially entertainers, entertainers who stimulate prejudice, selfishness and meanness the way a comedian works for laughs or a tragedian plays for tears. Theirs is a new art form, exclusive to America and bewilderingly successful. In place of traditional conservative ideology, they offer their audience partisan belligerence and a complete package of mail-order hatreds, designed for the conceptually and ethically impaired.”

        I’d love to see Mammoth Lakes and Mono County declare this beautiful part of the world as a Racism Free Zone.

      Yes I knew you would make it that way Dr Facts, that is why I said what I said about some will call me a racist.

      It’s OK though, I just consider the source. You don’t have to be offended by what I say, you have that choice. It wasn’t meant to offend, rather to illustrate the absurdity of the fence, just as the other fence I alluded to, is just as absurd.

      yet what do we do .. in both situations to rectify the problem Without building a stupid fence?

        Racism in the United States has been a major issue ever since the colonial era and the slave era. Legally sanctioned racism imposed a heavy burden on Native Americans, African Americans, Latin Americans, and Asian Americans. European Americans were privileged by law in matters of literacy, immigration, voting rights, citizenship, land acquisition, and criminal procedure over periods of time extending from the 17th century to the 1960s. Many European ethnic groups, particularly American Jews, Irish Americans, and Eastern European and Southern European immigrants, as well as immigrants from elsewhere, suffered xenophobic exclusion and other forms of racism in American society.

        The ignorance of some Americans to this ugly part of our culture continues unabated as some of the postings above would indicate.

        • Racism in America July 10, 2013 at 2:43 pm #

          As in most countries, many people in the U.S. continue to have some prejudices against other races. In the view of a network of scores of US civil rights and human rights organizations, “Discrimination permeates all aspects of life in the United States, and extends to all communities of color.” Discrimination against African Americans, Latin Americans, and Muslims is widely acknowledged. Members of every major American ethnic and religious minority have perceived discrimination in their dealings with other minority racial and religious groups.

      • Thanks, Big Al July 10, 2013 at 10:17 am #

        Many thanks to Big Al for presenting a classic example of when it comes to racism in America – America definitely does NOT have it’s _ _ _ t together.

        Fortunately, every generation begets a more liberal and tolerant generation than the one before it, and the youth of today (the future) views our bigots as a group of people who the sooner these prejudiced old farts die off – the better our society will become.

    Wouldn’t a ‘deer bridge’ also require huge fences all along the highway to channel the deer to the bridge? Do you really want to see huge fences all along the highway for miles? Sounds like it would be a huge barrier to the deer and eyesore as well!

    • Mark July 8, 2013 at 1:04 pm #

      Wouldn’t it be easier to just slow down during deer migration?

    • MJA July 8, 2013 at 9:23 pm #

      It is not a novel idea, and the deer need our help. =

      Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care
      July 4th brought us a fawn–a baby mule deer. Here’s part of his incredible story!!

      The mother deer was crossing Hwy. 395 (still carrying her baby), probably looking for a good place to give birth. She was hit by a car–the impact was extremely violent reportedly. The mom’s belly split open and the baby literally popped out onto the pavement. A car of visitors from Southern California witnessed t…See More

    All good ideas.

    I wrote a letter to the T.C. about 5-6 years ago suggesting the ban on plastic bags.. Got an email back said they weren’t interested in such ideas.

    • Desert Tortoise July 7, 2013 at 8:19 pm #

      Banning plastic bags is not a good idea at all. I have a hundred uses for them at home. They seldom end up in the trash unless they have trash or dog doo in them, and they never end up as litter. Banning them will be a major disruption to my household and something that will anger me tremendously.

  5. MJA July 6, 2013 at 8:34 am #

    As for issues: I would like to see the town council initiate a ban on plastic bags. And the county change the easement along Crowley Lake Drive so that the street could be entirely tree lined. And the state build a natural deer crossing bridge like they did in Canada by the green church to prevent the slaughter of so many deer.

      MJA- try saving the bears , instead of some plastic bags! What happen to recycling?

    • Wayne Deja July 8, 2013 at 8:45 pm #

      MJA….Another migration area that needs something done…about 5 miles north of Bridgeport on HWY 395 above that little free campground east of the highway….Took a walk one night along that stretch and saw countless deer carcases below the roadway.
