Congratulations to Douglas District Attorney Mark Jackson for a big win on Tuesday in the Karen Bodden trial. I understand that Mark used a PowerPoint presentation during his closing argument and its the first time I've ever heard anyone say that was a good idea. Bodden faces life in prison without the possibility of parole during her sentencing today. The jury found she shot her aircraft mechanic husband Robin Bodden twice in the head and dumped his body in the desert above Johnson Lane on Tuesday.
Tonight a second public review of Park Cattle's plans for 4,500 acres surrounding Minden and Gardnerville will be on display at the CVIC Hall in Minden. Also on display will be the hall's new screen and projection system. The meeting is at 7 p.m.
The forecast calls for snow and its not going to let up anytime soon. The National Weather Service is predicting snow through Saturday and then the possibility of a bigger storm on Sunday. Right now it looks like we've got a little something in the Valley.
Chains or snow tires are being required on Highway 395 from Indian Hills south to the Nevada state line, so definitely expect to need them if you're climbing out of the Valley on Kingsbury or Spooner. Chains are mandatory for Highway 50 and are required on Highway 88 and Interstate 80 unless you're in a four-wheel drive. Take your time and be careful wherever you're going.
