Everyone who's going to Don Bently's memorial service 10 a.m. today is reminded to wear sneakers in accordance to his wishes. The service is at the St. Gall Catholic Church Pastoral Center on Centerville Lane in Gardnerville.
It doesn't take a medium to know people are ticked at the median. The Walmart median is on commissioners agenda up at Stateline today, as is a second reading of an ordinance allowing the Tahoe-Douglas District to expand its services to include water, storm and drainage services. That approval will put the district in a position to contract to operate the county water companies if they can reach a deal. Consolidation of the companies and seeking a local operator were two of the proposals suggested by residents to solve the county's water issue at the Lake. Commissioners meet 1:30 p.m. at the Tahoe Transportation Center.

Today will be warmest day we'll have for a while if the forecast holds. Expect sunny skies and a high temperature of 77 degrees. It didn't freeze up on the bench on the west side this morning, with 35 degrees in Genoa. A low pressure system is headed this way over the weekend with gusty winds, rain and a chance of snow above 7,000 feet. High temperatures next week will be in the 50s, so unpack the sweaters.
