INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. and#8212; Sure, now the snow decides to come to Incline and#8212; well forget it for this season. We are over the snow thing and have moved into beach days. Donand#8217;t get all worried about Friday the 13th tomorrow and#8212; with the predicted snow just stay inside and away from black cats.
Monday, April 16 features two unpleasant events. Yes, taxes are due on April 15, but since it is a Sunday you can still file on Monday. And starting Monday, dogs are no longer allowed at Ski Beach. Just one more important reminder about dogs. It is the responsibility of each owner to clean up the doggy do-do; just putting it in a plastic bag and leaving it behind for someone else to throw away is really disgusting. Please be responsible pet owners.
Be sure to go see Twain on Taxes at 7 p.m. Saturday, April 21 at the Toccata Performing Arts Theater in the Village Center. Hear Mark Twain (McAvoy Layne) divulge humorous differences between the taxidermist and the tax collector. Tax collectors, beware! For information and to purchase tickets go to www.toccatatahoe.com.
Star Follies tickets are now on sale at the Potlatch. Be sure to attend this annual fundraiser for our schools. Star Follies is on April 27 and 28 at the Cal Neva.
Another event to attend is the Tahoe Family Solutions annual campaign dinner on Thursday, May 3 at Big Water Grille. Call TFS at 775-298-0004 for information. Limited seating is available so make reservations early.
