Small-business owners will have a chance to talk face-to-face with city, county, TRPA and Forest Service officials today, during a town hall forum hosted by the Lake Tahoe South Shore Chamber of Commerce.

The forum will be from 3 to 5 p.m. at the Lakefront Wedding Chapel, 3351 Lake Tahoe Blvd. The event is free to chamber members; $15 for non-members.

Officials will cover topics expected to include business taxes, permits, licenses and home-business operation. They’ll also take questions from the audience.

Learn about BMPs during volunteer event

The Sierra Nevada Alliance and the Nevada Tahoe Conservation District invites volunteers to help construct best management practices (BMPs) at the South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center on Saturday, Sept. 22 , beginning at 9 a.m. Lunch and snacks will be provided.

Participants will learn by doing as they install BMPs on the site, guided by Conservation District employees who inspect and install BMPs daily. BMPs are erosion-control measures required for property owners by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency. This workday will provide hands-on experience, money saving techniques, and access to an expert.

The South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center is at 2941 Lake Tahoe Blvd., near Al Tahoe Boulevard.

Space is limited. Sign up by e-mailing; or call (530) 542-4546.

Deadline is Friday for free vaccine program

Parents of sixth and seventh grade students in El Dorado County have until Friday to turn in registration forms for their children if they want them to receive up to $565 worth of free immunizations at their school next month through a new program called IZ Xtreme.

Nurses from the El Dorado County Public Health Department, who have launched the campaign with local school districts, sent home informational packets to the parents of more than 5,000 children two weeks ago.

The vaccines are recommended for 11 and 12 year olds by the American Academy of Pediatrics and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

For more information, see or call (530) 621-6112 or (530) 573-3157. Forms are available at each participating school.
