Letter to the Editor: Intelligence, cooperation key to TRPA non-divorce

Jim Clark’s column of Sept. 23, “Nevada dominates California in TRPA Bowl,” while probably well-meant, runs the risk of trivializing an important development.

The TRPA Regional Plan Update brought about unprecedented collaboration between the two states to regulate development in the Tahoe Basin while ensuring the security of the environment. Nevada did not dominate California. Rather, intelligent thinking and cooperation prevailed.

Jim says to know the score read the papers, and cites the various lawsuits by the Sierra Club and local self-styled environmentalists.

It’s worth noting that the League to Save Lake Tahoe, long a staunch advocate for the environment, has dissociated itself from these groups and been branded traitors for doing so.

An old adage says you are known by the company you keep and by the enemies you make.

By that measure, Nevada, California, the TRPA, and the League seem like better company than do their critics.
