Genoa, Nev. — Planning commissioners weigh in on the vacation home rental ordinance revisions 1 p.m. today. The ordinance was introduced by commissioners last week and should be finalized at their Jan. 6 meeting. You can find the meeting info at

A request goes before the East Fork Fire Protection District Board to hire a contractor to serve as East Fork Fire District’s deputy chief of operations over the next six months while the district looks for a replacement for Jeff Veliquette, who retired after a year. The board will also consider the boundaries for its trustees at its 1 p.m. meeting at district offices on 1695 County Road.

Douglas deputies and East Fork firefighters responded to a report of a couple of booms and light flashes near Langley in the Gardnerville Ranchos around 6:20 p.m. Monday. Reports of fireworks going off continued into the night. Fireworks are illegal in Douglas County and occasionally people get caught with them.

The Sheriff’s Office is reminding people to please not to shoot firearms near homes. Some of the booms ringing out over the Valley are from avalanche control efforts up at Heavenly. There’s a lot of stuff that goes bang in the night around here.

Carson Valley Lion Ron Santi said the service club sold out of See’s Candy sale. Ron’s thanking everyone for supporting their cause. I could be wrong, but I don’t remember hearing that the club sold out this early before Christmas.

It will be a relatively nice first day of winter today with mostly sunny skies and a high of 45 degrees and the wind out of the southeast at around 5 mph, calming in the afternoon. First chance of moisture this week won’t be until late tonight, if then. It’s going to be fairly soupy through Thursday, though.
