The birthplace of Nevada politics will host a score of aspiring office seekers at 6 p.m. today.

Twenty-one primary candidates have said they will attend Genoa's perennial candidates' night at the historic Raycraft Hall in downtown, according to town manager Tom Peters.

Candidates ranging from county commission to Congress are expected to attend the function, where voters can meet and question them.

It's carnival time in Gardnerville as the Douglas Elks Lodge hosts its annual Summerfest beginning 4 p.m. today. Discount ticket books are still available through noon today at the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce (inside the Carson Valley Cultural Center & Museum), Full Belly Deli, Les Schwab Tires, Ham Dogs, Main Street Barbers and Accolades Trophies.

Here's hoping Hot August Nights aren't going to be any hotter than this week of hot July nights. The National Weather Service is predicting a high temperature of 100 degrees today and 99 degrees on Thursday. But the highs and lows begin dropping on Friday and by Sunday, if the forecast holds, we'll be down to a cool 53 degrees at night and 86 degrees in the day.

Menus at the Douglas County Senior Center had to be changed this week after their refrigerator blew a compressor.

About $2,000 worth of food was spoiled over the weekend after the refrigerator died, according to center director Warren Bottino.

Some of the food costs will be covered by insurance, Young At Heart President Paul Lockwood said Tuesday. However, Bottino said the kitchen staff has had to scramble to replace the food and feed the seniors.

Esmeralda Avenue will be closed this week for road construction and watch out for work at Highway 395 and 88 where they're replacing the curb. We're told roving bands of crack sealers are patrolling Winhaven.
