ALLY-STHS, a gay-straight alliance club, is accepting monetary donations for an ALLY-STHS scholarship established by faculty at South Tahoe High School in honor of the late Pamela Guzzi, who died May 4, 2005, from a rare form of cancer.
The scholarship will be given to a graduating senior who is actively involved in the club. The recipient will have been a role model to students and the community as well as actively involved in promoting acceptance and tolerance within the community at STHS.
The scholarship will be presented at the senior awards ceremony in June and has been named The Pamela Guzzi-ALLY Peace and Acceptance Scholarship.
For more information about making a donation, contact Bridey Heidel at (530) 541-4111, ext. 255.

May is the month to sign up for soccer on the South Shore of Lake Tahoe. Sign-ups for the fall 2008 AYSO season will be taken at the Lake Tahoe Unified School District offices, 1021 Al Tahoe Blvd., from 5 to 8 p.m. May 12, 14 and 15. The deadline for all players except the U16 and U19 players is May 15. Those older players have until Aug. 31.
Save time and money by first registering online at http://www.eayso.org. Print the online application form and bring it with payment and a copy of the player’s birth certificate to the registration dates and save $10.
Cost for the 2008 season is $80 per player for in-person paper registration forms and $70 per player if registration is first done online. All funds, registration forms and copies of birth certificates still need to be turned in during the May 12, 14 and 15 registration dates, even if the registration was initiated online.
Many volunteer opportunities are available throughout the season, and all parents of players are expected to volunteer in some capacity. Contact volunteer coordinator Lynn Norton at firstname.lastname@example.org or (530) 544-3039.
