Tuesday News Roundup

There are really slow news days when I struggle to put together a good news roundup. Well, today ain't one of them (except at the Las Vegas Review-Journal):

  • Good news for Lake Tahoe: restoring lake clarity is doable the Tahoe Daily Tribune reports. (Link)
  • Bad news for Lake Tahoe: the West Nile virus has been found in Tahoe mosquitoes. Again the Daily Tribune. (Link)
  • Woollen and Krolicki's campaign manager now fight over whether the movies her company gave equipment to were R-rated or X-rated. Krolicki himself is still a hit and runner, hiding behind his campaign manager. What a stud! Wonder if the voters will be so sick of the two and opt for Double Lonnie on August 15th. The Reno Gazette-Journal. (Link)
  • The Reno Gazette-Journal has an editorial on the primary process in general and specifically the Nevada caucuses. (Link)
  • The Gazette-Journal asks you what skills the next Governor of Nevada should possess. You can email your thoughts to sfalcone@rgj.com by Friday. (Link)
  • The Nevada Appeal tells you "to put your vote where your mouth is" and urges you to vote. (Link)
  • The Las Vegas Sun takes a look at the ensignificant Senator and his counterpart in the House. The former focuses his attention to old issues, the latter switched his vote on the constitutional amendment to ban gay marriages from no to yes. (Link)
  • Lisa Mascaro of the Sun writes about Senator Reid handing out his money to candidates. (Link)
  • "Natural fit for early caucus" editorialises the Sun about Nevada's new importance. (Link)
  • The Arnold leads. No, Angelides leads. No, the Arnold leads. Another poll is out. This time it's the Arnold. By eight. The Sacramento Bee. (Link)
  • "Phil Angelides won because of the heat wave" could be the headline in November. Funny, what columnists will come up with to get their column filled every day. The Bee's Dan Walters on the magic heat wave. (Link)
  • Daniel Weintraub of the Bee has breaking news: elections are a referendum on the incumbent. Well, duh! What are the requirements for writing for the Bee? Can I get a job? (Link)
  • Another duh! The winner of the popular vote should be president. The San Francisco Chronicle on a Stanford professor's idea on reforming the electoral process. (Link)
  • The Arnold manages to split unions. Ouch. The LA Times has the details. (Link)
