A California judge has amended his order barring the Tahoe Daily Tribune from publishing color photos of two murder defendants. Superior Court Judge Jerald Lasarow said his Nov. 29 order was misunderstood and it applied to only new photographs, not pictures the newspaper had already published. He had expressed concerns about prospective jurors seeing the couple in orange jail jumpsuits.

The U.S. Forest Service plans to triple the amount of logging in the Tahoe Basin next year in an effort to clear an estimated one out of five dead and dying fir trees in the Sierra Nevada, officials said.

The League to Save Lake Tahoe says a plan for increased commercial flights into the town's small airport is a "dinky" document that does not deal with crucial aviation and environmental issues. "This is not a master plan alternative. It's a fantasy flight level dreamed up by the city and whoever," League Director Tom Martens said of the proposal by South Lake Tahoe and the bistate Tahoe Regional Planning Agency.

Forest fire smoke from four summers ago in the Tahoe Basin greatly stimulated algae growth in the lake, longtime Tahoe researcher Charles Goldman said. Nutrients in the smoke particles probably caused the increase in algae production, he said. He plans follow-up research on possible links between wood smoke and declining clarity of the lake's water.
