Genoa, Nev. — ASPIRE Academy will hold its graduation ceremony 5:30 p.m. in TJ’s Corral at the Carson Valley Inn. This will be the ninth graduation from the school since 2013. The school opened in 2012 as Douglas County’s third public high school.
The Support Our Seniors Class of 2021 party Thursday night at TJ’s was well attended if the photo Ron Harpin sent The R-C is any indication. Douglas High graduation is 10 a.m. Saturday. There won’t be a senior parade on Saturday.
The new VHR ordinance was approved 4-1 by Douglas County commissioners on Thursday, with commissioner Walt Nowosad voting against it, saying he felt the entire program should be eliminated and the current permits expire without being renewed.
It seems appropriate that after declaring June Cowboy Hat Month, it took some horse trading by commissioners to choose five members of the new VHR advisory board on Thursday. The panel will include former School Board Trustee Keith Byer, Jeffrey Mains, Lauren Romain, Mickie Hempler and Robert Drabrant. Mains and Romain are VHR owners.
We had a little spritz in Gardnerville and some lightning on the side. According to the Weather Service, we tied the June 3 record for 96 degrees originally set in 1924.
Today should see the heat back down a little bit with the forecast calling for 93 degrees with the Zephyr back this afternoon at 15-20 mph gusting to 30 mph. Keep an eye out for smoke today in case any of those strikes bore fruit.
