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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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,… Read more »

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.”… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!

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

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

Eastern Sierra Wildlife Care Yesterday 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… Read 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.

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… Read more »

Yep, and already people in LA want to revisit that ban. For me it means no more shopping in LA. I can buy what I go south for in Rancho Cockroachamonga, San Gabriel or Gardena.

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… Read more »

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.
