Moonshine Ink’s News section covers the community. This past year, our team has provided in-depth and critical coverage during the Covid-19 pandemic, and our community has come to rely on our role as watchdog for local government and as a source of information on community activity. We also have two ongoing investigations, into all things wildfire and the region’s housing crisis.

Visit our Tahoe/Truckee coronavirus central hub and our live regional updates for the latest coverage and community response to Covid, and read Dead Man Walking (a harrowing local resident’s ongoing struggle with serious effects of Covid-19) which has become our site’s most-read story of all time.

Our ongoing and thorough coverage of the region has earned us national recognition over the years, most recently with two first placements in the National Newspaper Association’s Better Newspaper Contest: our feature investigation into Tahoe’s trash problem that has been part of a movement that’s sparked change in Placer County, and this piece highlighting a tough situation for TTUSD teachers sparked by the Ink being contacted by an anonymous “fairy.”

As we continue to cover the trials and triumphs of the Tahoe/Truckee region, please hold us accountable to our 2021 goals and vision and provide feedback as well as story ideas, tips, and other editorial tidbits to editors@moonshineink.com.
