TranscriptionSegment 62 - Lake Tahoe MOS Air Date: April 6, 2004 ((Anchor Intro)) We've been airing the Lake Tahoe Report for just over a year now here on KOLO News Channel 8. And, we've interviewed most of the movers and shakers at Tahoe...researchers, educators, policy makers, legislators and more. Tonight, Shelly Purdy takes a look at what the average person on the street thinks about the lake and the efforts to save it. ((Take PKG)) ((Track 1)) A beautiful sunny day brings out the best in Lake Tahoe. And it also brings out the people...drawn to the lake's shore to enjoy it's glowing beauty. ((sot @ 8:28 April Dodd, Jacksonville, FL)) "It's beautiful. Very nice, uh, lovely. It's clean. The lake, I can't believe how blue it is. It's just very pretty." ((Track 2)) It's very simple. People love this lake. But the question is, how do we keep from loving it to too much? ((sot @ 12:01 Mirian Chiaramonte, San Jose, CA)) "People all want to come up here and live up here, but they have water and electricity and everything else that has to be done. Trees have to be taken down son and so forth. So you need to be careful and controlling it is important." ((sot @ 9:27)) "This is beautiful. This is a wonderful gift that God's given this part of the country. And, you know, everything needs to be done to keep it clean and pure." ((nats - sledders)) ((Track 3)) And for some, Tahoe is more than just a great place to live or visit. It's an almost spiritual connection they share with the lake. ((sot @ 17:33 Hugh Denno, South Lake Tahoe)) "If we don't have a place to live in what are we going to do? If we don't have the peace of mind of a beautiful lake and a natural environment, we'll go crazy. We need it." ((Track 4)) With the Lake Tahoe Environmental Education Coalition, I'm Shjelly Purdy for KOLO News Channel 8. ((Anchor Tag)) If you would like to give us your comments about how you feel about Lake Tahoe or the efforts to preserve it, email us here at
