How much better are things now than in 1945?
At the end of World War II, America was on top of the world, by almost every measure. To be sure, over the following 15 years, many new consumer goods and inventions that deeply affected the lives of the average American came on the market. These included color televisions, microwaves, muscle cars and many other things.
But then, around the mid-’60s, things began to stagnate. Take jet travel, for example. The jet drastically reduced the time that business people had to spend in the air. The travel time from New York to Los Angeles in a state-of-the-art DC-7, in 1955, was over eight hours. Just five years later, that time had shrunk to less than four. Jets like the Convair 880 and 727 were some of the fastest subsonic commercial jetliners ever built. In fact, the 880 is considerably faster than any commercial jet flying today. This is somewhat incredible, if you think about it, because over long-haul flights it made quite a difference. Inter-coastal business travelers in 1960 spent a half hour to an hour less time in the air than their modern counterparts.

Recently, Squaw Valley issued a statement in response to the news that both E.coli and coliform bacteria were detected in the water at Squaw Valley’s upper mountain.
The issue was initially reported at the beginning of November to the Placer County Department of Environmental Health. Since the report, the water has been constantly treated. Due to the constant treatment, there is now no E.coli in the water and small amounts of coliform. Wesley Nicks, the director of Placer Country Environmental Health, relayed this information to the Sierra Sun.
Upper mountain restaurants will be closed until it is confirmed that the water is clean, and skiers can not consume any of the water until the issue is solved. Currently, no one has reported any water-related health issues, and top to bottom skiing is still permitted.
Liesl Kenney, who is the director of public relations for Squaw Valley, issued a full statement concerning the water contamination on Nov. 30. She states that a heavy rainstorm in October is responsible for the bacteria found in the water, and shares that the water systems at High Camp and Gold coast were upgraded in the summer. Kenney also clarified that none of the other Squaw Valley water systems were affected.
She also included in the statement that the Placer County Environmental Health and Squaw Valley Public Service District were contact as soon as the water issue was detected. Other water safety professionals were also contacted and Squaw Valley will continue to have the water treated until the issue is fully resolved.
Kenney assured the public that customer safety was of the utmost importance to Squaw Valley, and that the water issue is taken extremely seriously. The guests at Gold Coast and High Camp still have full access to amenities, and will receive free bottled water to drink until the water is safe to consume.
