Tahoe Daily Tribune: In the works for Friday
May 15, 2008
Here’s what you’ll find in Friday’s issue of the Tahoe Daily Tribune:
When people think of Lake Tahoe, a plethora of activities come to mind: skiing, kayaking, hiking, camping, mountaineering, gambling and sailing to name a few.
But if you’re a teenager and you lack transportation, money and a legal ID stating your passage into the 21 and older club, the options become much more limited.
Or are they really?
Howie Nave will never forget his car trip with Max Alexander, who almost got him with the ultimate zinger.
The comedians were heading home after a show and Nave fell asleep in the passenger seat. Alexander pulled up next to a truck hauling a house. Speeding along at the same speed as the house, Alexander made his pitch.

“He wakes me up and says ‘Howie you’re home. Watch out, it’s windy,’ ” Nave said.
“And I almost started to open the door. Before I even opened the door I said ‘That doesn’t look like my house.’ “
Alexander stories will fill the South Shore Room on Saturday, May 17, for Maxed Out Laughter. Proceeds from the event will go to Alexander, who is struggling with dialysis and needs a kidney transplant. Six comics will perform at the show, which begins at 7:30 p.m. Read more about the show and Alexander in Lake Tahoe Action magazine.
It didn’t take long for Tahoe Daily Tribune photographer Dan Thrift and Visual Director Jonah M. Kessel to find Bike to Work Week participants. They were all over the South Shore. See if you can recognize them in Friday’s newspaper.
