Accused bank robber Jarell Williams is scheduled to appear in District Court today seeking funding for a mental health evaluation. Williams has been in custody since Jan. 4 when he was arrested on a Carson Valley rancher's property.
Sounds like pipes in Carson Valley are groaning under the influence of continued cold temperatures. East Fork firefighters were called out to Minden and Genoa on Monday to deal with the effects of broken pipes. There's an inch of ice on Topaz Lake.
It's cold out this morning, with the temperature up on the bench at 8 degrees and I'm sure colder in the low parts of the Valley. We'll see above freezing temperatures for a couple of hours this afternoon, then it's back in the icebox for us.
