The existence of diverse opinions and perspectives is as obvious as air. They are all around us. It should come as no surprise to anyone that people like to describe what they see in different ways. No perspective is obsolete, dangerous or wrong just because it is different. Being free to express our views is so basic and elementary to

All I can think is that you’ve got to be pretty hungry to eat a camel, but to eat a president’s camel, you’ve got to be rather ravenous. I don’t know exactly how it happened, but

Killing of Incline beavers is wrong Some people in Incline suddenly decided that they no longer wanted to coexist with a defenseless family of beavers. When I was younger my parents would reprimand me for killing a spider due to the fact that it helped keep disease-carrying mosquitoes away from me. They carried it outside in a glass. I got

After an explosion like the one in Boston, it is indeed hard to hear one’s own internal monologue, much less meditate on such horrific events. Polluting that sacred

I am a resident of South Lake Tahoe, and have been in, and around the area since 1976. I do believe that there should be a loop road, having said that I have a strong opinion as to how to go about it. I know you have spent lots on money on research, planning routes, meetings and so forth. Why

Imagine saddling up to the tee, shaking off your favorite driver, lining up the shot and just blasting one off the top of a snow-covered mountain. You ski (or snowboard) up to your ball, hopefully one of those bright yellow ones, and rip into another swing, snow flying like sand out of the sand trap. “Fore!” Yep, that’s snow golf.

When members of the Sierra Wildlife Coalition recently heard reports of beavers potentially being killed on public land along Incline Creek near Tyrolian Village, they were shocked and frustrated. What has left them and others even more incredulous — the beaver depredation is legal. On Oct. 31, 2012, the Nevada Department of Wildlife issued a one-year depredation permit to an
