Insight: State of the Lake / Day Tripping: Locke / Lewis Black / Parie Wood



State of the Lake  Anything you ever wanted to know about Lake Tahoe can be found in UC Davis’ annual “State of the Lake” report: weather, water temperature, color, depth . . . the list goes on. UC Davis has been continually monitoring the lake since 1968 and has amassed a unique set of data for one of the world’s most beautiful and vulnerable lakes. Researchers from Davis’ Tahoe Environmental Research Center in Incline Village are expected to release the 2013 report Wednesday morning. We’ll have the latest details from the report and find out in what sort of state Lake Tahoe is.

 Lewis Black When Lewis Black isn’t delivering biting social commentary on The Daily Show, he’s touring the country with his increasingly angry rants. He's coming to the Sacramento Community Center Theater August 17 and is preparing for his ninth stand-up special, which is going to bebroadcast live as a pay-per-view event August 24: “Lewis Black: Old Yeller – Live at the Borgata.” We’re speaking with Black about these shows as well as New York and California’s mutual dislike for Texas Governor Rick Perry, who is trying to lure jobs away from both states.
