At the Lake

- Water from five more wells in the Tahoe Meadows subdivision tested positive for contamination on Monday, with one of these wells showing potentially dangerous PCE levels.

- Firefighters from the South Lake Tahoe Fire Department, who are in the midst of contract negotiations with the city, staged demonstrations at the junction of highways 50 and 89 on Labor Day Weekend in an effort to rally public support.

Firefighters, joined by supporters, held large white signs with slogans such as "city council does not care about your public safety" and listing the phone numbers of city council members.

Their issues: what they describe as under-staffing, a 47 percent turnover rate at the department and 18-month-old contract negotiations.

- Tahoe Daily Tribune staff members who tried to circle Lake Tahoe using public transportation came up short in Incline Village.
