The R-C Morning Report for March 17

A Gardnerville Ranchos man faces up to 10 years in prison this morning after he admitted multiple raids on Walmarts in January. Logan Schwartz, 25, was arrested on Halloween after he was identified as the man who walked out of the Walmart with a big screen TV on Oct. 23. He has two prior felony convictions.

We’ve got a plum tree that has flowered and the apple and pear trees don’t look to be too far behind. That’s not good news for this year’s crop, which could end up freezing if the trees blossom too early.

It’s a warm, blustery St. Patrick’s Day out there this morning. The temperature was 50 degrees, and will only climb another 10 before starting to cool off. There’s a lake wind advisory for Tahoe until 11 a.m. today, with winds 20-30 mph, gusting to 45 mph, driving waves of 2-4 feet.
