Genoa, Nev. — A coronavirus vaccination clinic is 3-5:30 p.m. today. A mix-up on the dates issued by Carson City Health and Human Services last week prompted us to report in Saturday’s edition that it was Wednesday. Apparently, people were paying attention because the Senior Center had several people come in yesterday.

An $1.8 million contract to finish the Martin Slough Trail between Gardnerville and Minden goes before Douglas County commissioners 10 a.m. today. That and the first reading of the VHR ordinance revisions are on the morning agenda.

Planning commissioners Kirk Walder and Bryan Oland are seeking reappointment during this afternoon’s commission meeting. There’re three seats up and seven applicants, including former County Commissioner Dave Nelson and the two incumbents. Kristi Kandel is resigning from the board.

Parks and Recreation Advisory Board members Gary Dove, Debra Lang and Cherise Smith are seeking reappointment with some competition from Elisa Lernhardt and Tim Miller. They’ve set aside four hours to hear from applicants starting at 1 p.m.

Carson Valley is still under a winter weather advisory through 10 a.m. today, while Lake Tahoe has a winter storm warning. The cameras appear to be working across the county this morning and are showing blowing snow on Kingsbury.

Any snow that arrives in the Valley is likely to occur before 7 a.m. Expect gradually clearing skies with the high temperature predicted to be near 40 degrees. The wind will be out of the south at 5-10 mph, shifting west this afternoon.
