  • While our students could benefit from more sleep, will 30 minutes really make a difference?

  • The current early school start times are having unintended negative effects on our children, physically and psychologically.

  • The prison system in this state is broken. It needs to become a true rehabilitative entity — instead of a for-profit industry.

  • The consequences of climate change present an immense risk to our health and safety and will undeniably enhance challenges for survivors of domestic violence, sexual violence, and child abuse.

  • Vail Resorts has committed to a zero net operating footprint by 2030, and Squaw Valley Alpine Meadows, the Town of Truckee, and the City of South Lake Tahoe have all committed to 100 percent renewable power. But we can do more; we need to put a price on carbon.

  • A high school student’s perspective on the importance of compromise

  • The proposed Tahoe City Cross-Country Center is the wrong project in the wrong place.

  • The Alpine Meadows community was not included in the decision-making process of four new Gazex avalanche mitigation exploders, and the community is shocked, appalled, and angry that explosive material untested in residential areas will be used this winter.

  • With local elections rapidly approaching, there is one public agency where voters do not have a direct choice regarding who serves on the board of directors.

  • On Nov. 6 you have the opportunity to renew an investment in our local students by voting YES on Measure AA.
