LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Give SnowGlobe and South Lake Tahoe a chance

I think the SnowGlobe event was a much needed shot in the arm for a slowly dying community where the number of visitors continues to decrease, which in turn affects the number of locals who cannot sustain their businesses nor afford to continue to live here.

I agree with Councilman Tom Davis that something needs to be done to create venues to attract visitors. I also live in the Sierra Tract, a couple of blocks away from this event, and was no way bothered by the bass or music. Yes, I heard it, and I get up at 6 a.m. to go to work, but it did not cause me lack of sleep or hinder me in anyway whatsoever.

I also shopped at the Rite Aide several times during this event, and each time it was crowded with visitors spending their money and not only were they buying items such as food and drink, but they were buying Lake Tahoe logoed items, that in turn, is great advertising for wherever they return to that they call home.

One weekend of a little abnormal happenings is not something to create such a fuss about, when it’s bringing compensation to people and businesses that are so in need of it and those people especially who called 911 to report their complaint, what if you had a real emergency and needed help, but someone was tying up the lines with their “non-emergency” complaints of noise. A little common sense goes a long way.

I also believe if event were moved to the airport as suggested, it will not be received as well, as that is not within walking and riding distance and not as convenient to attend, more people driving unneccessarily.

Give South Lake Tahoe a chance for some economy recovery.
