Last Chance for Winter Disaster Loans

Businesses of all sizes, most private nonprofit organizations, homeowners, and renters may apply for SBA federal disaster loans to repair or replace disaster-damaged property.

These low-interest federal disaster loans are available in Washoe county and Carson City in Nevada; and Nevada, Placer, and Sierra counties in California.

Local Publishes First Novel
Kathleen Doler recently published her first novel, The Hook, with booklocker.com, available online and at Word After Word Bookstore in historic downtown Truckee. Doler has lived in the Truckee area off and on since the late ’70s. The Hook follows the story of Dana, a business journalist, and her return to her hometown, Half Moon Bay. She’s been running away all of her adult life, from the mental illness and chaos that defined her childhood. Now her junkie brother, a former surf star, is tangled up with a violent meth dealer, landing him in the hospital. While she attempts to help her brother and prevent him from becoming a pawn in an escalating drug war and an FBI investigation, she’s forced to confront her troubled past and her rootless life.
Conservation Group Publishes Enlightening Bear Ears Report
Conservation Science Partners, based in Truckee, published a report April 4 comparing the natural beauty of Bears Ears National Park to a group of other well-known national parks. Bears Ears has been the subject of much controversy since it was protected as a national park under the Obama administration — a status that is being threatened under the current administration. The study concluded that Bears Ears has wild and scenic value to rival some of the most popular parks in the West, including Yellowstone, Yosemite, and the Grand Canyon. Info: csp-inc.org
