Insight: News Network: Tahoe / "Exhibiting Patriotism" / The Cookie Project / Count Basie Orchestra


 

News Network As the Tahoe Basin grapples with an ongoing territory dispute between bears and humans, Incline Village may soon become the first community to adopt pricey bear-proof trash bins. The move by Incline Village comes at a time when new research is questioning effectiveness of tactics wildlife officials use to keep trapped bears from returning to populated neighborhoods. Capital Public Radio’s Sierra Reporter Ky Plaskon joins us to talk more about Tahoe’s struggle to control bears. Plus, he’ll take a look at the affordability of Sierra ski resorts and the growing number of Tahoe communities banning plastic bags.

We’ll talk with Bergman about her book and what she has learned from studying the controversies that have erupted at these sites.
