Will the real Tahoe Tessie please stand up?

Dear Editor,

I think you have a decoy Tessie doing your column. I was very suspicious that some of the things said just didn’t sound like Tessie. After the response on the lime green bike thing [LimeBikes] I am almost positive it’s an imposter. The comment of “why can’t South Lake have nice things” was the first clue.

Tessie knows better than anyone, we have the nicest things on this planet. The clear sunny skies, the fantastic four season weather, which is very comfortable all year, the most beautiful mountains like Tallac and of course the crown jewel, Our Lake. Lime green bikes are not a good accessory.

Tessie knows less is more. Then Tessie went on to say people who have been here since the 1800s are complainers when Tessie values all of our locals from any era because Tessie has been here the longest. Third, talking about the pollution from cars: That’s true, but if we regulated VHRs we wouldn’t have so many cars and pollution. There was a house up the street from mine with 11 cars and approximately 30-35 people! In one home.

Tessie is kind, wise and loves the basin more than anyone. Tessie would never say the things that were said last column. So please investigate, and return our original local.
