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.
