The Tutoring Center at Sierra Nevada College aids anybody in the Incline Village Community who seeks help with learning a certain subject.
The center has at least 10 tutors. Tutors get to personally connect with students they help, and help improve their skills in different subjects.
It takes a lot of will power for me to bite my tongue when I see someone in Tahoe buying a single use plastic water bottle. Sometimes I can keep my opinion to myself, but as those of you who know me will understand, it’s really hard for me to do so.
It stills amazes me that I see people buying plastic water bottles around here.

The Devil Makes Three has been playing rowdy American music to eager crowds for over a decade.

The drones. Like clockwork, every minute on the minute, the glance, not at the horizon or the sky or even the pavement moving underneath hundred dollar sneakers, but at the phone. The constant buzz under the left or right butt cheek. The dadadaling echoes in classrooms. Is the ability to garner information at the speed of light a blessing or a curse?
We’ve all had the same conversation too many times, it’s an unnecessary downer. Furthermore, it’s a bandwagon rant. The same people who have been known to skip powder days to nurse a hangover are now “devastated” about the lack of snow. Why is it so trendy to complain? Instead of reiterating the obvious, here are a few more productive and positive ways to deal with the drought.
