I applaud the work of Clean Power Lake County in their leadership to call for Lake County to build a just transition from coal to clean energy, and I’m proud their work will be highlighted on the national stage for TV viewers around the country.

The best largemouth bass fishing I’ve ever encountered was at Lake Huites, a vast impoundment on the outskirts of the Sierra Madre Occidentals in Sinaloa, Mexico.
I used to sneak into the Forum to watch the Lake Show, when I lived in L.A. with my pop. I was born in Seattle, and for fourth, and fifth grade, I went to L.A., then I came back to Seattle and then back to L.A. for eighth, ninth, and 10th grade. But it was easy to sneak in the Forum, like really easy.
I recently learned that Lake Como is one of the most romantic places two people could go. That beautiful great lake is a majestic reminder that love is unconditional when you flow and nourish one another, constantly and unconditionally, like water.
I watched Ricki Lake’s documentary, ‘The Business of Being Born,’ and that led me to call a midwife, and not an ob-gyn, when I found out I had conceived. My delivery was not easy – they call it ‘labor,’ not ‘a vacation!’ – but I was incredibly grateful that I did it that way.
Lake Tahoe is a California treasure and we must do everything we can to protect it for future generations.
The lake and the mountains have become my landscape, my real world.
I guess because I came to it later in life, I realized, ‘Oh, going to a fashion show is like going to the opening of Degas at the Met or going to see Swan Lake.’
I was out here at East Lake, on a property I had never seen, and I was just like a kid at Disneyland walking around. There was only 30 guys. Thinking about how this is the big goal everyone is looking forward to at the end of the year and I’m fortunate enough to make it.
Flying over New Orleans on our approach, I got it. There was no view of land without water – water in the great looming form of Lake Pontchartrain, water cutting through in tributaries, water flowing beside a long stretch of highway, water just – everywhere.
I was an only child until I was 14, and there were no other kids around the area really. So I spent a lot of time on my own in the fields or by the lake, with just my imagination for company. I suppose I never wanted to let that part of me go.
When I turned to writing fantasy, and writing for young people, it was joyous. It was like discovering an underground lake of ideas that went on forever.
I’m an old-fashioned guy… I want to be an old man with a beer belly sitting on a porch, looking at a lake or something.
Salt Lake City gave me a lot of surprises. How progressive the city actually is, for instance, compared to the rest of Utah – it’s like this purple dot in a sea of red. And the government there is kind of a mix of conservative values and progressive ideas.
The Salt Lake fans are so passionate.
I am not a city guy; I like peaceful surroundings and maybe a walk around a lake.
When I was a kid a growing up in Ontario, Canada, Lake Erie was so polluted, I never thought it would ever, EVER be turned around where they could start cleaning it out in my lifetime!
If you want me to perform in Silver Lake – where it looks like ‘Vice’ magazine threw up everywhere, where all the men are wearing V-necks to their belly buttons, salmon pants, and carrying a screenplay – I’ll do it, because they might appreciate a Banksy joke I can’t do anywhere else.
‘Swan Lake’ is the most difficult thing to portray for a female ballet dancer; it really requires such specific qualities of articulation, agility, strength, and the arm work is something that takes a lot of training.
I remember Geauga Lake. I remember Six Flags. I remember going to the mall. I hung out there. These big, grand places that served as pinnacles of the community were not only institutions or places of commerce. They were communal spaces where a lot of people went and shared good memories. These are very nostalgic places.
Seattle is very similar to Minneapolis. I like the culture; I like the people. I raced a bike and won a national championship on Lake Washington in 1977, so I’ve had a connection there for a long time.
I collect old Coon Chicken Inn memorabilia. I collect black memorabilia, like old minstrel posters. It was a real place. There was one in Seattle, one in Portland, and one in Salt Lake City. They started in 1925, and then they went out of business around 1958.
When I went to Moscow, I felt I was relearning Swan Lake – which was written for the Bolshoi – and being immersed in a tradition and history I had never experienced. It took a while to adjust to living there and learning the language, but now I have lots of friends. I get the best of two completely different worlds.
As the Olympic torch neared Lake Placid, N.Y., in 1980, signaling the opening of that year’s Winter Olympics, newspapers and magazines throughout the world offered predictions on who would win medals in the major sports. Not a single publication gave the American men’s hockey team a chance against the world powers.
Boating on the lake is one of my favorite summer activities.
Nevada contains an extraordinary diversity of outdoor landscapes and recreation experiences. Red Rock Canyon, Black Rock Desert, Lake Tahoe and the Great Basin are each a part of our history, our character and our way of life.

I listen to a little bit of hip-hop, but I mainly go back to what was big when I was at the University of Georgia in the ’70s. I’m a big Emerson, Lake & Palmer guy, a big Jackson Browne guy, the soundtrack of college.
When I got to Salt Lake City, in the summer of 2010 – I know it’s a cliche, but man, it’s the truth: I was just a kid.
I had seen the ballet of ‘Swan Lake’ as a child but it was as an adult, when I saw a production featuring Erik Bruhn, that I first noticed how significant a part the ever-present threat of violence played. This juxtaposition of great beauty and grace with a backdrop of pure evil stayed with me for years.
We grew up in the Rose Park section of Salt Lake City. It’s a good neighborhood but a tough one, on the poor side but proud. Sports are big. You learn to fight.
I grew up in Chicago, so I’ve always been a Bears fan. Dad used to take me to Bears games and Cubs games. My brother used to ride me over to Lake Forest College on his Honda Supersport and we’d watch the Bears practice. I remember those guys out there as monsters – they were the biggest things I’ve ever seen!
They say that Salt Lake is a great place to raise a family – and I know that sounds like something people just say. But you spend enough time here… and you realize that it’s true.
I have these vivid – some fabulous, some not so fabulous – childhood memories of driving to Lake Tahoe.
I lived for two years in Odawara, a castle town an hour outside of Tokyo, near the sea. It’s a beautiful place, and I drew on my experiences there when writing ‘The Lake of Dreams.’

Lake Taupo is on the north island of New Zealand and in the countryside. I absolutely fell in love with it.

My youngest brother and I went on a ten-day canoe trip in Bowron Provincial Park in British Columbia years ago. Believe it or not, we took only granola, thinking we’d be eating a lot of lake trout. Well, we neglected to bring along a net, and our fishing line was only 8-lb. test.
Charles Wyly was born Oct 13, 1933, in Lake Providence, La., and for a period lived with his family in a shack without electricity or plumbing.

I used to do a lot of fishing with my dad, usually in Beckton Boating Lake.
When the fishbowl gets too small, it’s time to pack up and leave and jump into the lake or ocean.

I just love to be out on the lake, wakeboard, surfing, just playing, man.
We did have a beautiful cottage in the Lake District which we spent lots of time in when I was younger.
I planned to stop in 2002 after the Salt Lake City Olympics. I felt able to remain competitive another four years, and I wanted to stop while I’m still at the top.
The Gross National Product includes the destruction of the redwoods and the death of Lake Superior. It grows with the production of napalm and missiles and nuclear warheads… It includes… the broadcasting of television programs which glorify violence to sell goods to our children.
That Evan Dunham fight, I went back to not being serious. I was going to the lake and literally brought some wrestling mats down with me. We have a shop at the lake where we park the boat. I’d throw the mats in there, wakeboard all day, and train all night. I was having a good time, getting back to work.
I swam across Skaneateles Lake, about a mile, when I was 11 years old. I remember feeling when I was in the middle of the lake that I would be there forever, and having no idea where on shore I’d end up. I made it, and I’m proud of the determination and persistence that took.
I think it requires a bit of honesty, Swan Lake.
I hadn’t really thought about this until ‘The Lake of Dreams,’ but I’ve set all my stories in places that are familiar to me. It frees me up to spend more imaginative time on the characters.

We were having a sleepover when I was eight or nine, and we all got to stay up late and watch the original ‘Frankenstein.’ It was uncensored, so as a child, I saw the scene where he throws the little girl into the lake, and that freaked me out. Though not as much as when he hangs the hunchback.
I would watch ‘Sesame Street’ and see neighborhoods and kids with other kids to play with, and I just didn’t have that. You know, we were on a lake. We just didn’t have that stuff.
But I love Chicago summers on Lake Michigan, Philly cheesesteaks on South Street, falling in love in Brooklyn, street fairs in Asheville, North Carolina.
We have the most beautiful planet – the Rockies, the purple fields of the United States, the Lake District, the Pyrenees, the turquoise seas of the tropics.

My Mom said she learned how to swim when someone took her out in the lake and threw her off the boat. I said, ‘Mom, they weren’t trying to teach you how to swim.’
