Thursday News Roundup

  • Can Senator John Ensign keep his promise to turn Incline Lake into public land? He may not make it and the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza wonders what the consequences might be in that case. (Link) and (Link) I have one question for the Bonanza, though: What exactly does "likely candidate" mean when you're referring to Jack Carter? Come on, get a grip!
  • The Tahoe Daily Tribune reports on the regional plan of the Pathway 2006 forum. (Link)
  • After predicting that none of the six initiatives might make it on the ballot, the Nevada Appeal today reports that two might actually be decided by voters in November. Of course, as always, Republicans can't just admit defeat, so congressional candidate Sharron Angle blames "liberal activists" for not being able to gather enough signatures to get her millionaire friendly tax initiative on the ballot. Oh, poor Sharon! (Link)
  • The Las Vegas Review-Journal again shows us what a responsible news outlet it is by declaring that it's none of the evil federal government's business when judges get shot at. Nope, I'm not making this up. (Link)
  • David Broder proves that it's a problem for inside the beltway pundits to get with the program.

  • There will be an election workshop for candidates in Tahoe City on Tuesday. The Sierra Sun has more. (Link)
