What’s Happening

CASA El Dorado is offering a training class for adults interested in becoming court-appointed special advocates.

Advocates are volunteers who are court voices for abused or neglected children. The class begins March 4 and will be offered from noon to 3 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday.

Each person completing the training then is eligible to become a CASA.

CASA volunteers are appointed by a judge and advocate for a child’s best interests in court.

Many of these children have been removed from their homes and are placed in foster care.

The CASA program in South Lake Tahoe serves more than 100 children, but has children waiting. Each week, there is a new child added to this list.

You can make a lifetime of difference for a child.

Call Wendy David at the CASA office at (530) 573-3072 for more information and to sign up for the class.

The Tahoe Basin Region of the Nevada Fire Safe Council, which serves the California side of the basin, and the Lake Valley Fire Prevention District are sponsoring a series of meetings regarding ways for people to make their homes and neighborhoods fire safe.

All Lake Valley Fire District residents who are county residents of the South Lake Tahoe area are encouraged to attend one of three meetings.

The meetings are scheduled at 6 p.m. Monday and Tuesday and at 10 a.m. March 8 at the Lake Valley Fire Station, 2211 Keetak St., Meyers.

Topics will include defensible space on the individual homeowner’s lots as well as fire safety throughout an entire neighborhood and what homeowners can do make their neighborhood fire-safe.

Financial assistance and the steps that must be taken to complete defensible space also will be discussed.
