1. A man in a Halloween mask robs a Truckee pizza shop.

“Truckee Police Department officials are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a man connected with the Thursday night armed robbery of a local pizza restaurant,” reported Josh Staab of Sierra Sun.

“That robbery, according to deputies, involved a man wearing a Halloween mask fashioned after a mask worn in the horror movie ‘Scream.’”

2. Drought threatens the Lake Tahoe Cave Rock water system.

“Wave action is damaging pipes for Douglas County’s Lake Tahoe Cave Rock water system that are above the surface, thanks to the drought,” reported Kurt Hildebrand of Record Courier. “Lake residents get their water from the Lake, once famed for its clarity. But with the surface continuing to drop, Douglas is looking at means to ensure the water keeps flowing.”

3. Make pumpkin oat chocolate chip cookies with an online recipe.

4. Nick Cahill, a Lake Tahoe photographer, lands the cover shot of National Geographic.

“The cover image, which is called ‘Dark Needle,” shows Lake Tahoe below the Milky Way,” reported Tim Hauserman. “It graces the Fall 2015 National Geographic ‘Guide to the Night Sky, a Stargazer’s Companion.’”

5. Boreal Mountain Resort recently celebrated 50 years.

“The ‘Old Timer’ celebration commemorated Boreal’s early years and the 50 years of successful operation,” reported Norm Nicholls. “It was also an occasion to honor John Booth’s 40-plus years of continuous (and ongoing) employment at Boreal.”
