Wednesday News Roundup

  • Tree cutting at the airport, Doolittle's involvement in the Homewood deal, the planned expansion of Heavenly. Now, that's what the North Lake Tahoe Bonanza considers material for drama and it advises its readers to join the fun at the TRPA meeting in Stateline today. Too bad I can't make it. (Link)
  • 1 in 5 children in Nevada live in poverty. Dawn Gibbons' response? "Secure borders". That's if you believe her shabby little ad that graces way too many of the Reno Gazette-Journal pages at the moment. It's good to know that the Dawn Gibbons cares about the children of Nevada. (Link)
  • "The male bullies insecurity act" didn't receive enough votes in the Senate. But there is a very good letter by Carter Earnshaw of Reno in the Reno Gazette-Journal today. (Link)
  • "Petition details matter" writes the editorial board of the RGJ. Who would argue with that? The group supporting the TASC petition. I've got a little game for you guys: count the number of times Goverwannabe Bob Beers is mentioned in this editorial. (Link)
  • The Las Vegas Review-Journal wonders which southern Nevadan Democrat is the better Governor for northern Nevada. Take a wild guess what they believe. (Link)
  • Bill Roberts of the Review-Journal proves in his column today why America currently has an image problem abroad. The headline reads "World Cup fever makes this sports fan sick" cause there is nothing worse in the world than a sports competition in which teams actually are from all over the world and not just from the United States. Hmm. (Link)
  • Robert Sheer writes in the San Francisco Chronicle about the "assault on freedom of the press". (Link)
