Genoa, Nev. — The election is over, but the counting will continue for the next couple of days as ballots turn up in the mail. If you didn’t mail your ballot or drop it off on Tuesday you might as well frame it and put it on a wall, because today it’s just decoration.

The Douglas County Clerk-Treasurer’s Office paused counting mailed ballots so they could fully staff the polls on Tuesday. There are still roughly 3,400 left to count of the ballots received, plus whatever comes in the mail in the coming week.

Highway 50 reopened at around 11:45 p.m. Tuesday after the Nevada Highway Patrol completed its investigation into a 6:25 p.m. fatal collision near Zephyr Cove. I expect we’ll hear more on that today.

Planning commissioners continue editing the Douglas County Master Plan at a virtual meeting 1 p.m. today. If you like to watch people type and delete stuff, visit and click on agendas and minutes.

Improvements to property located east of the intersection of highways 395 and 88 are up for approval at the Minden Town Board meeting, 5:30 p.m. at the CVIC Hall.

Genoans will determine the fate of the town’s Christmas events 5:30 p.m. today in the Genoa Town Hall. The town’s been reticent to conduct events during the coronavirus outbreak.

The Douglas County coronavirus caseload dipped a smidge with two new cases on Tuesday and six recoveries, bringing the county to 26 active cases and 413 recoveries.

Expect another gorgeous fall day with the high at 75 degrees under sunny skies. The forecast for precipitation on Friday is so far holding steady.
