Wednesday News Roundup

  • The North Lake Tahoe News has Tsunami news of a different kind. They report on a team of scientists aiming to find out more about the lake's geography and history. (Link)
  • The Tahoe Daily Tribune reports on the first El Dorado County Supervisor debate taking place yesterday: "Both claim to be Democrats and in favor of protecting the environment. But the similarities stop there." (Link)
  • Well, boxing is just not my thing. At all. So, personally, I can't quite understand why Harry Reid went to a boxing match after all. Now, he has to defend himself for it. The Reno Gazette-Journal has the latest. (Link)
  • And the Nevada Appeal has an online vote on whether or not Reid should have taken those tickets. (Link)
  • What does Minden have in common with Sparks and Las Vegas? In the Record-Courier's "Tale of Three Cities" you'll find out. (Link)
  • The Las Vegas Sun reports on DNC Chairman Howard Dean's trip to Nevada as part of his applaudable 50-state strategy. (Link)
  • $1.1 million. That is how much Rep. John Doolittle has raised for his reelection campaign. The latest chunk of that thanks in large part to VP Dick Cheney. However, this might just be a race where John Doolittle's tarnished reputation is more important than the amount of donations he receives. The Sacramento Bee has the numbers. (Link)
  • Today, the San Francisco Chronicle takes a look at ├╝ber-donor Angelo Tsakopoulos and how he and gubernatorial candidate Angelides were supposedly involved in a Tahoe condo deal many years ago. (Link)
  • The LA Times' Ron Brownstein looks at the arguements within the Democratic Party on how to best beat Republicans in November. (Link)
