Stormwater topic of meeting
What is the latest word on stormwater? Attend the Tahoe Area Sierra Club monthly community conservation meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday and find out. The meeting will take place at the Tahoe Douglas Fire Station on Elks Point Road in Zephyr Cove. Additional parking is available on Dorla Court. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.
Come early and have refreshments and interesting conversation.
Guest speaker is Doug Martin, who has more than 30 years experience in environmental and conservation related projects. He worked for the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection and also the private environmental consulting sector before coming to Nevada Tahoe Conservation District.
Martin, who is the manager of NTCD as well as chair of the stormwater advisory committee, will explore the answers to this question: “Does it make sense to pool the resources of more than 16 Nevada jurisdictions as a stormwater utility rather than operating independently?” He will present a summary of the work to date on the stormwater study. Working collaboratively with all of Lake Tahoe stakeholders is the focus of the stormwater advisory committee.
Overwhelmingly, participants are citing the benefits of improving communications brought about through this project.

Summer reading programs begin
The South Lake Tahoe Branch Library will offer summer reading programs for all ages from Tuesday through July 28. Sign up right away.
The theme for the Summer Reading Club for youth is Get a Clue @ Your Library, which includes mystery stories, word and logic puzzles, codes and fingerprints. Children may choose a prize from the Treasure Chest for every five hours they read or are read to. Prizes include toys, games, stuffed animals and books as well as gift certificates for pizza, ice cream and miniature golf. Make your best guest to win the Mystery Jar, and don’t forget to check out the special performers throughout the month of July.
Teens can join the teen reading club, read a book and enter the weekly drawing for a gift certificate. They can win coffee, smoothies, mini golf, movie tickets and more. Read five books and be entered in the drawing for an iPod. All you have to do is read.
For adults, it’s easy. Every time you check out books and go home and read them you can enter the drawing for gift certificate to Freshie’s.
So, here’s the challenge this summer. Read on the beach, read in the sun, listen to a book on tape while working or having fun. There’s no better time to catch up on light summer reading or revisit the classics. Make this a summer to remember and read.
