Author seeks local dogs
An author and photographer touring the nation in search of dogs with stories to tell will make a stop in July at 2 Dogs and a Cat, located at the Village Center in South Lake Tahoe.
Traveling in a recreational vehicle between May and September, Jeff Moore will look for subjects in a book at nearly 40 pet stores. He’ll also check out dogs in the wild – at parks, beaches, alleys and junkyards.
Moore’s casting-call visit at 2 Dogs and a Cat for the book “Excuse Me, May I Shoot Your Dog?” is scheduled for July 2 and 3 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Doggie portraits will be offered for $75 a sitting, with $10 from each shoot to be donated to the Animal Coalition of Tahoe.
Business fair on Thursday
A business fair designed to benefit the South Shore’s Animal Coalition of Tahoe is slated for Thursday in the Sequoia Ballroom of the Horizon Casino Hotel. The 3rd annual summer business fair, which starts at 5 p.m., will feature exhibits from many of Tahoe’s restaurants and activity purveyors.

Casinos score winning month
Nevada casinos had to deal with bad weather and didn’t hold onto as much money from gamblers as expected, but still managed to win $1.06 billion in March – the second-highest monthly win ever.
A state Gaming Control Board report released last week showed the win was up 3 percent compared with the same month a year earlier, and was second only to the record win of $1.14 billion reported in January by the resorts.
Stateline casinos on Tahoe’s South Shore were down 40.2 percent, with the clubs taking in $20.5 million. Clubs on the North Shore of the lake dropped 10.1 percent, winning $2.8 million.
