California governor cancels Lake Tahoe Summit appearance
August 16, 2008
A knee-related injury forced the last-minute cancellation of California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger appearance today at the 12th annual Lake Tahoe Summit.
A spokeswoman for the governor told the Tahoe Daily Tribune that Schwarzenegger continues to have knee problems and may have further injured it sometime this week. He was to see a doctor about it today.
“He has a torn meniscus and it has been bothering him all week. He’s been working around the clock and hasn’t had a chance to have it looked at. It has become painful and he wants to get it checked today,” said spokesman Aaron McLear.
Schwarzenegger was to join U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., to co-host the 12th Annual Lake Tahoe Summit at the Valhalla Estate at the Tallac Historic Site.
The governor was to deliver remarks at the top of the program.
The Lake Tahoe Summit is to highlight the progress made in preserving Lake Tahoe and the surrounding Lake Tahoe Basin. This year’s focus is on forest health, climate change and environmental protection.
