SACRAMENTO (CBS13/AP) — Californians rejoiced this week when big drops of water started falling from the sky for the first time in any measurable way since the spring, an annual soaking that heralds the start of the rainy season following some of the hottest and driest months on record.

Report: COVID-19 Underscores Need To Diversify Tahoe Tourist Economy

RENO (AP) — A nonprofit group’s new report raises concerns about changes in the workforce at Lake Tahoe and the future of the area’s economy, including looming impacts from climate change. It says the COVID-19 pandemic helped expose the growing vulnerability of its increasing dependence on tourism as housing costs balloon, year-round residency declines and more workers commute from afar or seek jobs elsewhere.

This was no ordinary rebranding but an acknowledgment that the old name had become irreparably tainted by racist and sexist associations.
