INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. and#8212; No worries and#8212; beach days will come back, they always do. Mother Nature just wanted to prove that snow was still available and it could happen at any time of the year. Still the snow was not so bad for most locals it was waking up to 26 degrees and seeing all the flowers zapped.

We have some bowling news but it seems that I forgot to mention one of the favorite Incline bowlers attending the USBC Womenand#8217;s Championships in Reno last weekend. So I apologize to Carol King, as she did indeed attend. But the event details seem to be another closely guarded bowling secret. The only report that I can get out of any of the other bowlers is that they had a good time. So, if someone wants to spill the beans, I will be happy to share.
Congratulations go out to Sierra Sun and North Lake Tahoe Bonanza Office Manager Pat Greenlaw. This week Pat is celebrating 20 years with the newspapers and their parent company, Swift Communications.
