Hearing slated on shorezone

Extensive public outreach efforts are being conducted by the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency in an effort to inform Lake Tahoe residents on Alternative 6 to the Shorezone Environmental Impact Statement – a document influencing the future of the lake’s shorezone.

A complete copy of Alternative 6 of the Shorezone EIS is available online at

The public is invited and encouraged to attend outreach sessions designed to inform community members of the contents introduced in Alternative 6, and allow for public input that will ultimately impact the final shorezone document.

The TRPA’s Governing Board will vote to adopt new shorezone regulations by the end of the year. A public hearing will be held Aug. 24 at 9:30 a.m., at TRPA’s offices.

In addition to the public outreach sessions, public comments may be submitted to Coleen Shade no later than Sept. 2.

E-mail comments to, or send them to her at 128 Market Street, Stateline, NV 89449.


Toby Keith show will start early

Those holding tickets for the Toby Keith show on Thursday may want to strap their boots on an hour earlier.

The show, originally earmarked for 7:30 p.m. will actually begin at 6:30 p.m. at the Harveys Outdoor Amphitheater.

A mix-up of the times was made by the concert promoter who forgot to allow time for the opening act, said Harrah’s/Harveys spokesman John Packer.

Tickets for the Thursday show purchased through Ticketmaster say the concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Ticketmaster will call all of its ticket holders to tell them the show begins an hour earlier, Packer said.

Keith’s opening act is Lee Ann Womack, who is set to hit the stage at 6:30 p.m. Doors open at 5 p.m. Keith is set to begin playing at 8 p.m.

Filmmakers need places to stay

The 2005 Tahoe-Reno International Film Festival is attracting attention from all four corners of the globe with its upcoming cinematic event, happening at theaters around Lake Tahoe, Reno and Carson City, Aug. 24-28.

As part of the festival’s “Global Distinction” category, filmmakers are arriving from as far away as Mongolia and India.

“For many of these people it is their first experience of America and the glorious Sierra Nevada region we are so privileged to inhabit,” said Executive Director Katrina Wilson. “They will be enamored with all of the sights of the Lake of the Sky. Yet, with the festival drawing near, some of these talented and highly skilled craftsmen are either unable to find adequate accommodations for their short duration in our area or just can’t afford a five-night stay in our destination.”

According to Wilson, some filmmakers may try to stay outside of North Lake Tahoe, but it will be hard for them to manage time and resources if they have to commute to the lake.

“When you participate in our ‘Adopt a Film Maker’ program, the end result is priceless as you have the experience to watch the career of an artist develop and blossom,” she said. “In addition, it is not uncommon for these international visitors to make a positive, powerful impact in each adopting family’s life. As a community that loves and supports the arts, the opportunity to facilitate a filmmaker’s dream is within your reach.”

If you may be interested in adopting a film maker, contact the Tahoe-Reno International Film Festival at (775) 298-0018 or stop by the Donald W. Reynolds Non-Profit Center at 948 Incline Way, Incline Village.
