The Sunday News

The advent of Indian casinos is beginning to have the effect on Lake Tahoe gambling that many warned about, but is also having a very nice impact that most didn’t think about; the restoration of one of the most beautiful lakes in the country (and recently ranked number one as a tourist destination) to just a beautiful place to visit, stay awhile, have dinner; returning it, in a very updated way, to the ambiance of many years ago when those of us fortunate enough to have grown up here and of an age to remember when it was primarily "our" lake.

A very spiffy new car is being developed that has three wheels, leans like a motorcycle around turns, travels at speeds up to 100 miles per hour and gets 100 miles per gallon. Sign me up!

A very nice story about Midtown and its growth from the perspective of long time residents and newer business owners and developers, both speaking a lot of truth and giving the sense that this area will continue on its upward spiral and residents will need to learn from more urban areas how to live there and still find peace and harmony. Think thicker walls and windows, iron gates, closed in front porches, etc.

The June primaries aren’t stirring up much excitement except in our local mayoral race, and in this very political town, that is enough to keep us busy.

Enjoy your Sunday.
