Kudos & Kindness
We would like to express sincere appreciation to Matt Tillson and his coaching staff, Steve Yarrow and Chuck Diana, for a memorable season with the 2006 STHS Viking Varsity Baseball Team. Vastly made up of juniors and sophomores, the young team is building for the future and leaves only five senior players this season.
As parents of a senior player, Buck Pershing, we were able to see the team bond in this very short season and win some games in this very competitive 4A Sierra League. We experienced some amazing games winning/losing by only one run. Our proudest game is when Buck pitched a one-hitter against Wooster in a comeback after losing our first two games in that series. Our first game with the Carson Senators was very exciting as we were leading by as much as four runs during the majority of the game then losing by one run in the final inning. We still glory in the fact that we beat the Senators the year before on their field.
Buck has experienced some great highlights under the coaching of Matt Tillson to carry in his memories of his career as a catcher, pitcher and sometimes fielder, ending his season in recognition of the 4A Sierra League with the “All-League Team Honorable Mention,” along with other teammates who also earned Sierra League Team Honors – all of whom deserve to be solely recognized in their efforts in this highly competitive 4A League Division. We represent one of two high schools at the lake in totally different leagues and are deserving of our front page headlines.
As parents, we are very proud of our boys and their accomplishments as a team and wish them good luck in their future endeavors.

Tour of homes was a success
The South Lake Tahoe Branch of AAUW wishes to thank many people for making this year’s home tour a wonderful success. The tour was made possible through the generous hospitality of the five homeowners: Sean Degnan for his residence and his Sean’s on the Shore, Lloyd and Sandi Harvego, the Christensen family and Jim and Deb McKinney.
The homes were made even more beautiful with floral donations provided by Thran’s, Raley’s at the “Y” and at Stateline, Safeway-Bijou, and Safeway-RoundHill.
We appreciate our vendors for advertising and selling our tickets: Neighbors Bookstore, Curves at the “Y,” Coldwell Banker-McKinney & Associates, and South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe-Douglas chambers of commerce. Parking during the tour went very smoothly due to the assistance of El Dorado County Sheriff STARS and the city’s Community Safety Officer.
Last, but not least, we thank the community and visitors for attending the tour. Proceeds will be used to provide scholarships for women transferring from Lake Tahoe Community College to a four-year college or university.
Proceeds will also be given as “camperships” for seventh-grade girls to attend a math/science summer camp called Tech Trek.
AAUW promotes equity for all women and girls, lifelong education and positive societal change.

Meal drivers are appreciated
A heartfelt thanks to all the faithful, dedicated, and cheerful volunteer drivers who daily deliver Meals on Wheels to seniors in South Lake Tahoe. I’m sure I write this on behalf of everyone who receives the meals as well as family and friends of those individuals.
Both my mother and my in-laws have been a part of the program for several years now. Rain, snow, white-outs – nothing stops these drivers. Thanks to each of you. You are appreciated.
