July 18, 2011
July 18, 2011, Greencastle, Ind. — "The serenity of river life brought Jack Simon, 22, back to Tahoe City this summer," begins a story in Nevada's Reno Gazette-Journal. "Simon, then an English major at DePauw University in Indiana, worked last summer as an intern for a Lake Tahoe entertainment guide. To earn extra money, he also worked as a river guide, taking rafters through the stem of the Truckee River." (photo: courtesy Reno Gazette-Journal)
"It's the greatest job in the world," Simon tells the newspaper. "People spend a lot of money to do what I do every day."
Emerson Marcus reports, "Simon graduated in May and two weeks later was back in Tahoe City. But since his return, the Truckee River Raft Co. has not sent one rafter down the river because of low water levels."
