The R-C Morning Report

The big show today is Park Cattle Co. I've had some conversations with various folks about this. If commissioners delayed the vote to see what would happen with the growth ordinance, its passage should be a clear signal. If they thought there would be a different staff conclusion, that hasn't happened. Park is scheduled to start after 4 p.m. and take an hour and a half. I'm betting it starts at 5 p.m. and takes three hours.

There's some misinformation out about a firebomb threat to Douglas Democratic HQ. Reports that the threat was made Wednesday morning are incorrect. It was reported Wednesday morning, but occurred Tuesday night. The guy was a frequent flier, who would call and curse at whoever picked up the phone in the past. According to my sources, the man called HQ on his cell phone to make the threat. When contacted by authorities, the man apologized. I'm not sure what that means, but that's the story.

School board members will meet 3:30 p.m. in the Douglas High School media building in Minden. They'll canvass the vote for the bond. Also Douglas advanced placement mathematics teacher Debbie Barnes will be honored for being recognized by the College Board for producing some of the highest test scores in the state.

It will be mostly sunny today with the high climbing into the 60s. The rain drops won't return until Saturday, but the chance of that happening is increasing as we get closer to the weekend.
