‘Safety Ambassadors’ Encourage South Lake Tahoe To Mask Up

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE (CBS13) — The hardest-hit region of El Dorado County is taking a new approach when it comes to mask mandates. Volunteers with the city of South Lake Tahoe are walking the city, looking for people who are not covered up and making sure they have a mask. “When I came up with the idea I said, ‘Let’s see if we could get a way for people to comply politely, instead of the big hammer approach,'” said Former Mayor Tom Davis. The volunteers, dubbed safety ambassadors, are equipped with ...

History Is on the Side of Republicans Filling a Supreme Court Vacancy in 2020

If a Supreme Court vacancy opens up between now and the end of the year, Republicans should fill it. Given the vital importance of the Court to rank-and-file Republican voters and grassroots activists, particularly in the five-decade-long quest to overturn Roe v. Wade, it would be political suicide for Republicans to refrain from filling a vacancy unless some law or important traditional norm was against them. There is no such law and no such norm; those are all on their side. Choosing not to fi...

Without LeBron James, Lakers fizzle against Rockets

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — There might come a time when Rockets-Lakers is a playoff series, pitting some of the NBA’s most vibrant stars and two extremely divergent basketball philosophies at odds. Thursday’s game between those teams offered very little insight into what that matchup might look like. Without LeBron James or any discernible sense of cohesion, the Lakers lost a 113-97 match to Houston that brought them closer to the playoffs, but no closer to the team they want to be when the postse...

Los Angeles County surpassed 200,000 coronavirus cases on Thursday, Aug. 6, prompting public health officials to re-sound the alarm on the pandemic’s toll on low-income communities.

UC Davis’ Plan To Increase Clarity Of Lake Tahoe Will Please Tourists And Dogs

LAKE TAHOE (CBS13) – UC Davis has a plan that’s part science and part business that will increase the clarity of Lake Tahoe and make dog treats in the process. Lake Tahoe is arguably one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in the world and one of the clearest, but the clarity of the lake has been declining in recent years and that has environmentalists worried. “There’s a whole economy riding on the back of having an iconic lake and if the trend and clarity loss was to continue, then would...

DENVER (AP) — Brandon Belt extended his success against Colorado starter Jon Gray with a three-run homer and a double to lead the San Francisco Giants past the Rockies 4-3 on Wednesday night.

Lakers blend in Dion Waiters as Rajon Rondo’s rehab progresses

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Just 62 minutes into his Lakers tenure, Dion Waiters has already scored 30 points. That part of the game has always come naturally to Waiters, a career double-digit scorer who has sometimes been on the outs with his teams, but he has always possessed an offensive toolbox. While his 3-point jumper hasn’t been quite as hot (he’s just 3 for 14), Waiters has never been one to lack confidence in his shot. And down two guards, the Lakers need a player like him in the rotation....

Cold-shooting Lakers can’t keep up with Raptors

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — With a number one seed in their grasp, the Lakers got a chance to look ahead — but maybe not the one they wanted. For two meetings now, the Toronto Raptors have flummoxed the West’s No. 1 team. On Saturday night, they swarmed LeBron James and Anthony Davis with length and hustle. They sprinted down court for key transition buckets. And when James mounted a rally and got them back to an 83-all tie in the fourth quarter, the Raptors quashed it with a decisive 21-5 run. The...

Man with no fingers on one hand is making his own mechanical prosthetic hand, and it's incredible

Three years ago, Ian Davis was diagnosed with a cancer that weakens the bones.
