Across the Universe: Tahoe-Truckee ‘Town Talk’ launches next week (opinion)

Kevin MacMillan

Earlier this month, I wrote about our plans at the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza and Sierra Sun to launch a new section in print and online called “Town Talk.”

Since March 1, I’ve received via email a variety of fun photos, about both interesting community goings-on, as well as cute images of your dogs.

So, starting next week, we plan to begin publishing Town Talk as a weekly print page (or more than one page, if we have room) in the Wednesday print edition of the Sun and the Thursday print edition of the Bonanza, as well as in a photo slideshow at

As a reminder, here’s how to contribute: Just email us a high-resolution image (ideally, 200 DPI or higher and at least 5 inches wide on the longest side) to (editor’s note: even though the email says “,” we will ensure North Tahoe-Truckee submissions publish in the Sun, while Incline/Crystal Bay items publish in the Bonanza) with information about what’s going on in the photo, the full names of the people (or pooches) in it, and where and when it was taken, as well as who shot the image.

As far as what to send, the options are aplenty. The content can range from kudos to people in town, new business/ribbon cuttings, birthdays, anniversaries, “seen around town” items, your pets doing cool things, and much more.

Of course, as I mentioned earlier this month, there are exceptions. Images in poor taste, or those that have been manipulated or overly edited, will not be published.

As for frequency, as is the case with all our content — both that produced by our hard-working staff, as well as that sent into us by our dedicated residents and visitors — we will publish both in print and online as soon as time and space allow.

So keep on sending us your great photos — we look forward to them, and we’ll be sure to publish them as soon as we can.
