Genoa, Nev. — I’d forgotten all about the Verandah until Tuesday’s planning commission meeting when an extension of a 130-unit senior living facility was approved at Highway 395 and Ironwood. The developer said they plan to start work on the project that was first proposed in 2007.

State highway workers were trimming the Ranch No. 1 cottonwoods along Genoa Lane on Tuesday and will probably be back at it today.

School Board trustees were told on Tuesday that there were 101 Douglas High graduates in 2020, who had a grade point average of 3.9 or above. Students taking advanced placement and college courses are able to add to the traditional 4.0 grade. They’re planning a shift to a cum laude system of class honors.

Two projects in Gardnerville are showing some movement, according to Community Development Director Tom Dallaire. Virginia Ranch has approval for 1,020 units while Ashland Park’s developer wants to start building before the end of the year.

Douglas County went from 1,024 active coronavirus cases on Jan. 8 to just 491 on Tuesday. The county had seven new cases and 59 recoveries, which is pretty much how it has been going for the last month.

Carson City Health and Human Services has received 12,575 doses of vaccine and has administered 11,932 doses across Carson, Douglas, Lyon and Storey. That’s just for the health department.

We might actually see some weather this weekend, but for today expect mostly sunny skies and a high temperature near 54 degrees.
