On behalf of my brother, Rick Harter, and his family we would like to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude and thank everyone who helped us during the holidays for your thoughtfulness and true Christmas spirit. You all helped in creating a truly magical holiday for my 5-year-old niece, Allissa Harter, during the most tragic time.

To the staff at the Environmental Science Magnet School in Meyers: James Tarwater, Mrs. Preston, Mrs. Hembree, Miss Cindy, Joy Santos, and so many more. You welcomed my niece, Allissa, with open arms, even though she was a late start.

To the city of South Lake Tahoe Firefighters Association and the Lake Valley Fire Department, and firefighters Rob Hembree and Jeff Valney, thank you for a delicious dinner.

Thank you all for your compassion, your humanity and your kindness – you truly helped us through.

On a final note – to my brother’s wife, Allissa’s mother, Betty Harter – we miss you so much. You will always be in our hearts and our memories.

Holidays bright for 200 children

The South Lake Tahoe Women’s Center Adopt-a-Family for the Holidays program was a huge success thanks to the generosity of individuals, businesses and organizations within our community. It is impossible to mention everyone, since more than 55 community members brightened the lives of more than 85 women and 200 children in need.

The Women’s Center sincerely appreciates our community’s warmth and kindness in helping make this a special holiday season for women and children who have been victims of domestic violence and child abuse. Without your support during the holidays and year-round, the Women’s Center would not be able to help the ever increasing number of people who come to us for help.

Thanks for help following flood

We would like to extend a big thank you to Paul Friederici at Alpine Carpet One for helping us in a time of crisis. Our business had flooded on New Year’s Eve and caused us to close at the busiest time for our company. Luckily for us, Paul did not hesitate to help.

On Sunday, New Year’s Day, with church clothes on and razor blade in hand, he assisted us with tearing out the soaked carpet and underlying pad and hanging it in his warehouse to dry. He then arranged for the flooring to be completely reinstalled with minimal downtime for our business. It is local business people like Paul Friederici who make our community strong. This community is why we moved back to South Lake Tahoe, and why we plan to stay. Shop locally.
