Genoa, Nev. — A drive-through hot Easter ham lunch is on tap 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. today at the Douglas County Senior Center in Gardnerville. A game of parking lot bingo is 1:30 p.m. A $3 donation for those 60 years or older is suggested, while it’s $7 for younger folks.
Thursday’s warm temperatures may have induced a hypnotic state in motorists, with three collisions in under 90 minutes. The first was on Highway 395 and Esmeralda Avenue at 3:30 p.m. and resulted in one person being transported for treatment. An hour later there was a collision at Topsy and Highway 395 followed by a vehicle on its side at 4:42 p.m.
Wednesday night’s fire along Foothill was at a Taylor Creek home. There were a couple of holes in the roof and the door was boarded up on Thursday morning at the house in the gated community, according to a neighbor.
Douglas County commissioners are opposing two bills that would change how vacation home rentals are managed across the state. Both require a two-thirds majority of the Legislature to pass, which makes it unlikely either will make it through as written.
The long-awaited paving of Centerville Lane between Highway 88 and Foothill Road has been underway. Workers are also preparing to install box culverts under Highway 88 south of Minden. That will close the highway over two weekends during April.
Good Friday will see more great weather with the high hitting 74 degrees with a light breeze out of the east at 5-10 mph, becoming southwest 10-15 mph in the afternoon.
