Friday News Roundup

  • An indirect endorsement of Sharron Angle in the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza today. However, it's by the President of Republican Advocates of Incline Village/Crystal Bay. Funny, how Jim Clark forgot to mention the next Congresswoman from Nevada's 2nd CD, Jill Derby. (Link)
  • "An Inconvenient Truth" is coming to Tahoe. You'll be able to see it on the South Shore starting this Friday. The Tahoe Daily Tribune has a report that includes "Tahoe's premiere scientist Charles Goldman" throwing his support behind Al Gore's movie. (Link)
  • The Tribune also has another report on the TRPA meeting on Wednesday. The entertainment never stops. (Link)
  • "Germans bring greetings to Minden" writes the Record-Courier and reports on the visit of Horst Schumacher and his son Jörg from Minden, Germany to celebrate Minden, Nevada's 100th anniversary.(Link)
  • Even more congratulations from the Record-Courier. (Link)
  • Is this good pork-barrel spending? The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Senator Harry Reid secured almost $100 million to preserve Walker Lake and Lake Tahoe. The White House in all its wisdom wanted the money scrapped of course. (Link)
  • The Review-Journal also has the last word on the failed flag amendment in this cartoon. (Link)
  • Love is in the air. At a meeting between the Arnold and the Log-Cabin Republicans, the gay wing of the GOP. And it's love all around, really. He loves gays. He spends more time with gays than with his wife. What does his wife do? She spends more time with gays than with the Arnold. What does the not so gay wing of the GOP have to say to this? "No Republican governor in California history has promoted transsexuality, bisexuality and homosexuality like Arnold Schwarzenegger has." This has to be the most abstruse piece I've read this year and it comes to you courtesy of the LA Times. (Link)
